On November 29th (updated November 30th) The Epoch Times posted an article titled, “Crime Hiding Crime: A Motive for Stealing the Election.” The article notes a few of the consequences of four more years of President Trump versus the election of Vice-President Joe Biden.
The article reports:
A lot of ink, mournful or triumphalist depending on its source, has been spilled making predictions about what will happen in the United States should Joe Biden become president.
Another theme, running softly like an obbligato through that mighty narrative, also deserves our attention.
We know about the Dems in charge. They’ve promised higher taxes, nonstop wokeness and virtue signaling, more climate hysteria (here’s looking at you John “reporting-for-duty” Kerry), more Mullah-coddling and China-appeasing, and hordes of new Democratic voters hustled over our Southern border.
They have also promised to regulate coal and fracking and fossil fuels out of economic contention, which is another salient in their attack on prosperity itself. (Remember John Holdren, Obama’s prophet of “a massive campaign to de-develop” the United States? He would be back in a Biden administration.)
All of that—and I leave out of account what would happen should the Democrats also flip the Senate—all of that, I say, might be aggregated under the plus column of the Hobbesian typology of human motivation: the desire for, and exercise of, power.
The article notes some other consequences if Joe Biden were to become President:
The 2020 presidential election, however it is finally decided, will be important for what does not happen as well as what does.
I have no doubt that Democrats were highly motivated in the election in order to pursue their socialist, anti-American agenda.
But they were also powerfully motivated by fear.
Consider some of the things that will not happen should Joe Biden assume the presidency.
John Durham. Remember John Durham? He’s the fellow who has spent months and months and months investigating the investigators, looking into the cesspool of corruption and partisan malfeasance that underwrote what I have called the greatest political scandal in American history.
I mean the whole Russia Collusion Delusion, featuring Robert Mueller G-man extraordinaire, and a host of supporting actors from James Comey, Christopher Steele, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, John Brennan, and James Clapper on down.
Poof. Gone. The Durham investigation would be gone. Thanks for your service, John, but it’s time to think about spending more time with your family now and, besides, we need that office space for some Title IX inquiries. Just leave your files next to the shredder on your way out.
The Clinton Foundation. You remember the Clinton Foundation. That was the siphon through which hundreds of millions of dollars passed from influence seekers into the pockets of the Clinton family coffers. There were people in the DOJ looking into that operation, too, but you can be sure they would be furloughed before being exiled entirely should the Biden-Harris circus come to town.
Hunter Biden and his laptop from hell. Depending on where you get your news, you may or may not have heard much about Hunter’s laptop on the run-up to the election. It was one of the stories of the season, but since it was election season, the Media Industrial Complex closed ranks and put the story in a hermetically sealed container.
America needs to get this right. Our future depends on it.
