Slowly, slowly, the fact that the 2020 election was fraudulent is gaining wider recognition.
On Saturday Revolver helpfully posted Oliver Stone isn’t convinced Biden won in 2020, and here’s why…, November 25, 2023. This alerted me to Oliver Stone: I Don’t Know If Trump Lost The Election, Biden “Got So Many Votes“ He Wasn’t Expected To, by Ian Schwartz, Real Clear Politics, November 23, 2023. This is based on an interview with Bill Maher on his podcast “Club Random.“
Trouble broke out when Maher tried to bluster over Biden’s Covid 19 authoritarianism (which Stone dislikes) by saying:
…the form that Trump is threatening us with is even worse.
When Stone asked what he meant Maher went into a rant about the 2020 election.
Stone professed not to be well informed on the 2020 details but then produced a deadly thrust.
Joe [Biden] got so many got so many votes. You know, that was what was shocking, that he did so well compared to what he was expected to do…
Biden’s alleged vote achievement in 2020 was a statistical crime scene. This was brilliantly expounded in 5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms, by J.B. Shurk, The Federalist, November 23, 2020:
Candidate Joe Biden was so effective at animating voters in 2020 that he received a record number of votes, more than 15 million more than Barack Obama received in his re-election of 2012. Amazingly, he managed to secure victory while also losing in almost every bellwether county across the country. No presidential candidate has been capable of such electoral jujitsu until now.
While Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 totals in every urban county in the United States, he outperformed her in the metropolitan areas of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Even more surprising, the former VP put up a record haul of votes, despite Democrats’ general failures in local House and state legislative seats across the nation.
The 2020 election saw a radical departure from normal American voting patterns. Certain Democratic areas produced hugely more votes, both absolutely and relative to other areas, than normal. A highly plausible reason for this is massive fraud.
Apparently, Oliver Stone has got wind of this.
Early in the discussion Stone said to Maher-
I’m not a political junkie. You are.
and asked Maher for facts.
The result was pitiful. Maher actually referenced:
The people who have testified that this was a fair and will [sic] run election… people like Bill Barr. Mitch McConnell. You’re talking about Liz Cheney. You’re talking about dyed in the wool, serious conservative Republicans…
Maher also resorts to the Great Judge Myth:
They tried it in like 60 courts. It was laughed out of every court, including by Republican judges.
In Yes, Virginia (Dare): The 2020 Election WAS Fraudulent—And GA GOP Leadership (Among Others) Are Complicit, I quoted from Joseph Fried’s definitive Debunked?: An auditor reviews the 2020 election-and the lessons learned:
A review of ninety-two cases by the organization, Promoting American Election Integrity, shows that only thirty were decided on merit, and Trump and/or his supporters won twenty-two of these cases.
[See https://election-integrity.info/2020_Election_Cases.htm (p. 267)]
Furthermore, as I pointed out in Cornell Professor Gives Flawed Support To Trump’s Stalin Era Show Trial:
In most of Trump’s cases, including to its eternal shame at SCOTUS, judges simply refused to give him a hearing on contrived procedural grounds.
It comes as a surprise to laymen that judges can arbitrarily refuse justice. But they can and do. Trump’s cases mostly foundered on judicial partisanship or cowardice.
