All indications now are that the Democrats are finally about to pay for using Trump hate as a substitute for governing for two years, just as for four years prior to that they used Trump hate as a substitute for normal opposition.
The entire fabric of myths, frauds, and defamations that the national political media have conveniently held up as a safety net for the Democratic Party and this terribly incompetent administration is about to disappear, and the Democrats will finally carry the can for 14 years of incompetence and venality—10 failed years under Barack Obama and Joe Biden, with a four-year interlude when frenzied antagonism to the Trump administration was a divertissement of shamefully unconstitutional and obstructive opposition.
The greatest liberation of all in the national purgation that now seems likely in the midterm elections in two weeks will be the debunking of the totalitarian fiction that the 2020 election was unquestionably fair. This fraud hangs around the neck of America like an albatross and has been repeated like a catechism by practically every member of the national political media for two years. The ranks of Congress and of the nation’s governors will be crowded with highly motivated, capable, and ethically elected occupants who have campaigned explicitly and energetically on the alleged fraudulence of the 2020 presidential election result.
Most of the more knowledgeable upholders of this almost manifest untruth know that there were potentially millions of harvested ballots; that it was impossible to verify the authenticity of those alleged ballots; that a great many of them likely came in huge bulk at the improvised dropboxes in the middle of the night; that 50,000 fewer Biden votes in Pennsylvania and any two of Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin would have given the election to Trump in the Electoral College; and that the entire judiciary from first instance state courts to the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear on their merits or judge any of the 19 lawsuits against the constitutionality of the voting and vote-counting rules that were altered, supposedly to promote voting during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the least, 2020 was an election like 1960 (Kennedy–Nixon) and 2000 (Bush–Gore), where it will never be certain who would have won the election if all the valid ballots and no invalid ballots had been counted.
