Leftist groups are currently planning to secretly carry out a plan to mobilize in the face of what would be a violent “political apocalypse” should Democratic candidate Joe Biden fail to win over President Donald Trump in the upcoming November election. According to The Daily Beast, the coalition of progressive groups led by the organization Fight Back Table met last week on the Zoom platform to plan a possible scenario if the elections do not reach a precise result.
Fight Back Table is a consortium of MoveOn, Color of Change, and the American Federation of Teachers (with involvement from Transition Integrity). It has founded a Democracy Defense Nerve Center to fight a red-state revolt aimed at illegally keeping Trump in power, according to RedState.
Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law professor and co-founder of “Transition Integrity Project,” wrote in her editorial that only a “landslide for Joe Biden” would lead to “a relatively orderly transfer of power.”
During the fall of last year, the Fight Back Table would have planned a smaller-scale meeting to discuss post-election measures. However, the meeting was eventually postponed due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic (COVID-19). During the meeting, where the coalition of more than 50 leftist organizations met, participants addressed the question of what the progressive political ecosystem can do functionally under a range of electoral scenarios. They reportedly discussed forming a multi-state communications arm to fight misinformation, a training program to implement non-violent civil disobedience, and the rationale for carrying out “mass public riots.” (So much for the “non-violent” disobedience!) They also reportedly reviewed a report on the Transitional Integrity Project (TIP), a bipartisan initiative formed in 2019, which took the time to analyze the various election season scenarios, announcing the potential for chaos and corruption that lay ahead.
If the election results in a win for President Trump, the coalition could take a page from the TIP’s “war games” election report. It urges Biden to pressure the Western states, namely California and Oregon, to “secede from the Union.” That’s unless their potential demands for reform — abolishing the Electoral College, dividing California into five states, and statehood for Puerto Rico and D.C. — are met. A source familiar with the Democracy Defense Nerve Center spoke about the operations to be implemented and said they should keep the mess down and shut down society for weeks.
On the other hand, the Democratic Party legislators would be concerned about the consequences that could be unleashed by the statements of President Donald Trump. The president has pointed out that the mail vote, promoted mainly by the Democrats, could represent a potential danger to democracy, alleging possible frauds. President Trump suggested Wednesday that supporters should try voting twice, by mail and in person, to test electoral systems’ ability to detect fraud, prompting an outcry from state officials who warned that casting more than one vote is illegal.
How Serious Is This Threat?
Short answer: Critically serious.
Just to prove how certain are the members of these various groups preparing for purposeful election-results chaos, here s only one of the potential scenarios they “created” from which to craft their response plans. This idea was penned by Rosa Brooks, who is the founder of “Transition Integrity Project.”
We wanted to know: What’s the worst thing that could happen to our country during the presidential election? President Trump has broken countless norms and ignored countless laws during his time in office, and while my colleagues and I at the Transition Integrity Project didn’t want to lie awake at night contemplating the ways the American experiment could fail, we realized that identifying the most serious risks to our democracy might be the best way to avert a November disaster. So we built a series of war games, sought out some of the most accomplished Republicans, Democrats, civil servants, media experts, pollsters and strategists around, and asked them to imagine what they’d do in a range of election and transition scenarios. A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario we looked at involved street-level violence and political crisis.
“On the morning of Election Day, false stories appear online claiming that Biden has been hospitalized with a life-threatening heart attack and the election has been delayed. Every mainstream news organization reports that the rumors are unfounded, but many Biden supporters, confused by the bogus claims, stay home. Still, by late that night, most major networks have called the election for Biden: The former vice president has won key states and has a slender lead in the national popular vote, and polling experts predict that his lead will grow substantially as Western states count an unusually high number of mail-in ballots. The electoral college looks secure for Biden, too.
But Trump refuses to concede, alleging on Twitter that “MILLIONS of illegal ALIENS and DEAD PEOPLE” have voted in large numbers and that the uncounted ballots are all “FAKE VOTES!!!” Social media fills with posts from Trump supporters alleging that the election has been “stolen” in a “Deep State coup,” and Trump-friendly pundits on Fox News and OAN echo the message.
Soon, Attorney General William P. Barr opens an investigation into unsubstantiated allegations of massive vote-by-mail fraud and ties between Democratic officials and ANTIFA. In Michigan and Wisconsin, where Biden has won the official vote and Democratic governors have certified slates of pro-Biden electors, the Trump campaign persuades Republican-controlled legislatures to send rival pro-Trump slates to Congress for the electoral college vote.
The next week is chaotic: A list of Michigan and Wisconsin electors for Biden circulates on right-wing social media, including photos, home addresses and false claims that scores of them are in the pay of billionaire George Soros or have been linked to child sex-trafficking rings.
Massive pro-Biden street protests begin, demanding that Trump concede. The president tweets that “REAL PATRIOTS MUST SHOW THESE ANTIFA TERRORISTS THAT CITIZENS WHO LOVE THE 2ND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER LET THEM STEAL THIS ELECTION!” Around the nation, violent clashes erupt. Several people are injured and killed in multiple incidents, though reports conflict about their identities and who started the violence.
Meanwhile, Trump declares that “UNLESS THIS CARNAGE ENDS NOW,” he will invoke the Insurrection Act and send “Our INCREDIBLY POWERFUL MILITARY and their OMINOUS WEAPONS” into the streets to “Teach these ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORISTS A LESSON.” At the Pentagon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff convene a hurried meeting to discuss the crisis.
And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.”
Wow! And picture this: the above scenario they created for the stated purpose of preparing ourselves and other Americans for processes that MUST be initiated to ensure our government will be handed-off to the legally elected President!”
There are three more scenarios that are even wilder. This is James Bond stuff.
How did they prepare for all these contingencies? They could not include people from the Biden or Trump Campaigns, so they decided to use some “stand-ins” of people who are “in the know” about how both of these potential 2021 Presidents would respond. I will NOT go into the other three contingencies for which they created plans. When I heard who the stand-ins were, they lost all credibility. Here they are so you can judge for yourself:
On the GOP side, their “players” included former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele, conservative commentator Bill Kristol, and former Kentucky secretary of state Trey Grayson. On the Democratic side, participants included John Podesta, chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and a top White House adviser to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama; Donna Brazile, the campaign chair for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential run; and Jennifer Granholm, former governor of Michigan.
I refuse to analyze the specifics of their choices, but none of the three Republicans they chose are conservative, and each despises President Trump. And any “expert” who wishes to find realistic solutions from realistic possibilities in such a task would NEVER pick John Podesta, Donna Brazile, or Jennifer Granholm to represent Democrats. With those choices, I could predict the possible conclusions without even listening in: Donald Trump lost fairly and would prefer a civil war to voluntarily stepping down!
They missed a few things. First, Democrats are the only ones who have even made noises about possible actions regarding election results. Hillary Clinton still has not accepted that 62 million Americans legitimately chose for her NOT to serve as President. She is still screaming at Joe Biden, “Don’t concede on election night under any circumstances!” She’s screaming about THIS election!
I think I have reached a realistic conclusion of the purpose of this exercise in futility on the Democrats’ part: They’re certain Joe Biden will lose. Because they quietly feel it’s a foregone conclusion Trump will win, they’re preparing their adherents to instigate chaos of every kind that can be thrown at President Trump in a second term beginning with his inauguration!
Think about it: based on just this one possible scenario, can you imagine any way the DNC would not expect their followers to revolt in the vilest of ways if election results show a Trump victory? Without spelling it out, releasing this roadmap to rank-and-file Democrats is a call to war with a Biden loss.
How so? Those left-and-right coastal activists will hear this as a “call-to-arms” with permission to instigate violence. Why? “There’s no way Biden did not win! Trump stole this election. Now we must make him pay!”
The response of those in the “Transition Integrity Project” when confronted by Americans and even those in the Department of Justice will be, “Nothing we ever planned or prepared was in any way violent nor included any indications of any type of actions we recommended or instigated. These Democrats simply feel the election system has cheated them once again.”
I’ll conclude with what Ms. Brooks penned in her plan when asked is there any scenario in which she sees there is no extreme pushback regarding the results of the November 3rd election: “The only scenario in which we saw no pushback from the public in their response to election results is if Joe Biden wins in a landslide.”
If that doesn’t sound like a leftist elitist permitting angry Democrats to express anger and rage for a federal election’s results, I don’t know what else it might be.
“Can’t we just all get along?”
