This is simply amazing - Time is admitting to unconstitutional methods of rigging the election in favor of Biden and trying to dress that up as a means of "ensuring [the election] would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted" and "saving the 2020 election". They are rubbing our noses in the fact that the election was stolen by tilting the playing field heavily in favor of Biden (who still only barely won). Either that or they somehow don't realize they are revealing a conspiracy to commit election fraud. You can't make this shit up.

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election

"A second odd thing happened amid Trump’s attempts to reverse the result: corporate America turned on him. Hundreds of major business leaders, many of whom had backed Trump’s candidacy and supported his policies, called on him to concede. To the President, something felt amiss. “It was all very, very strange,” Trump said on Dec. 2. “Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.”

In a way, Trump was right.

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President. Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. "

It's funny, I didn't even mention the most obvious evidence of fraud here - "recruited armies of poll workers". WTF?? Why would anyone recruit armies of poll workers unless those poll workers were going to tilt the election in their favor? It's absolutely amazing that the leftist ideologues at Time magazine think the general public is so damn dull they won't even be able to discern that the article is exposing systematic election fraud. And it's even more amazing that they seem to be right...

You don't seem to understand that I did not write the article, TIME MAGAZINE did. It has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with people conspiring to decide who will win elections in advance. Why can't you guys figure that out? There must be something in the water over there which causes brain tumors... you may want to see a specialist about that.

I read that article.....what it said is that a large bipartisan group of people in American politics spent a year trying to make sure that Trump wouldn’t be able to get away with a stunt like the one he actually tried to pull off....which was using his social media clout and a bunch of lies to try to reverse the election results.

Sorry, nothing too concerning to me about that. It’s reassuring, actually.

Sorry, but you have failed to address any of the substantive claims made by the article. I will seriously consider your explanations of why the below are legitimate and "reassuring" if you provide them:

1) Voting systems and election procedures were changed before the election to influence the outcome.
2) "Armies of poll workers" were recruited before the election to influence the outcome (how exactly does that happen?).
3) Widespread and unprecedented mail-in voting was enacted before the election to influence the outcome.
4) Social media regulation of content was used before the election to influence the outcome (and we all know most people get their information from social media).

There are a few others but that's plenty for you to start with. That's all directly from the article.

I would say the vast majority of people do not get their information from social media... Social media is a confirmation bias amplification device. Most balanced people understand this.
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

Number two is easy. You recruit poll workers to make sure areas that are poor, minority or traditionally left out have polling stations that are fully manned and trained to avoid a clusterfuck which would have added substance to the otherwise baseless claims that were made after the fact. You run events to recruit the volunteers. You know that is exactly what they meant in the article but are being obtuse about it as usual...

Dude, in case you haven’t noticed, we have a pandemic in progress. It was a given that in-person voting would be potentially dangerous. and that mail-in voting would be the way around that. It was always going to happen......Trump just didn’t want it.....because it played hell with their strategy of using social media to discourage voter turnout. It wasn’t the least bit unfair. It made the elections MORE fair.

Poll workers are just poll workers. It isn’t in their job descripion to influence elections...and there is exactly NO credible evidence that the poll workers somehow nefariously changed the election outcome. It was simply gearing up for a difficult job of getting a hell of a lot of votes counted in a timely manner.

Social media regulation? You mean Trump getting kicked off Twitter and Facebook after he incited the Capitol riot? I think the election outcome was pretty certain before that happened....but it was the Capitol riot that finally caused much of the US public.....and the political donor class, to decide to pull the plug on Trump, who was out of control and trying to engineer a coup.

Ashvin.....you’re really better than this. Maybe cyou need to heck in for some Trump rehab.....you’ve got a bad case of whataboutism that seems to be clouding your ordinarily sharp metal acumen.

Eddie, once again... Time magazine is the one claiming these unprecedented strategies were employed to influence the election outcome, not as some routine measures to make the process run smoothly. I am not making that claim, they are making it and bragging about it. Apparently they, like you guys, cannot tell the difference between unconstitutional measures to tilt an election and measures to make sure the elections were "free and fair". All they have to do is sprinkle buzz words like "free", "fair", "uncorrupted", and of course "Trump" in the article to convince you they are talking about something other than what they are actually writing about. It's really amazing what the ideological politicians and pundits have accomplished with you guys. I stand in sheer awe.

The more they lie and the bigger the lies get, the more you guys believe. To the point where they can shout in your face that they illegally changed election procedures and censored news content and you won't even bat an eye. You still don't even know what I am referring to with "social media regulation". The NY Post article about Hunter Biden's laptop was completely censored on social media a few weeks before the election without any explanation why, other than Democrats claiming it was "Russian disinformation". Since then, a few weeks after the election, everything they claimed in that article was verified and allowed to run. Are you even aware that happened? Seriously, how oblivious to the world around you can you become? Some day social scientists are going to be including you guys in their case studies about the power of willful ignorance.

Trump’s Defense Team Will Show Clips Of Democrats Urging Violence In 2020
« Reply #10 on: February 08, 2021, 05:49:07 PM »
I can't wait to see the MSM try to spin this one. They will probably claim the videos are fakes and people like you guys will believe them.  ::)

Trump’s Defense Team Will Show Clips Of Democrats Urging Violence In 2020: Senator

Former President Donald Trump’s defense team will show videos of Democrats encouraging violence at his Senate trial, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Sunday.

Trump’s impeachment trial is set to begin on Tuesday, and the Kentucky Republican said his defense team will seek to turn the tables.

“I think you’re going to see the Trump defense play video of Rep. Maxine Waters telling crowds to mob Trump administration officials and attack them. They’ll probably show clips of Cory Booker saying get up in the face of these congresspeople. You’ll probably see comments from Rep. [Ilhan] Omar celebrating the violence that happened to me when I had six ribs broken and part of a lung removed.”

Bruce Castor, one of Trump’s lawyers, told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Friday “you can count on that.”

“I’ve been looking at a lot of video over the past couple of days,” Castor said. “There’s a lot of tape of cities burning and courthouses being attacked and federal agents being assaulted by rioters in the streets, cheered on by Democrats throughout the country, and many of them in Washington using really the most inflammatory rhetoric that’s possible to use,” he said.

“You better be careful what you wish for,” Castor said of the Democrats.

Waters in 2018 called for Democrats to harass Trump administration officials. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said at the Wilshire Federal Building, as seen in video of the event.

Our water in the great Southern land is no doubt different to what you drink in Merika. We did not have an arsehole president who gutted the EPA. Un-restrained capitalism urged on by right wing nuts such as yourself result in destroying your own country and shitting in your nest until the filth is up to your high fences around your gated communities. You then fly out to another paradise to exploit and repeat the process. The fat controller, recently deposed, was a champion of this. As long as he gets rich everyone else can eat cake.
 
5 people died from the repeated lie that your elections was stolen. The fat pig himself does not care about those lives. He is like you, as long as his agenda is run screw everyone else, and screw the truth.
 
You are delusional troll. Clear case of right wing paranoia.
Pigs the lot of you.
