Back in the days of Richard J. Daley and his vaunted Chicago Democratic Machine, the voting come Election Day was micro-managed by his patronage precinct workers, he always won big, and the results were never seriously challenged. Any Republican put on the ballot in November was merely a lamb led to slaughter.
Daley had his army of thousands of loyal patronage city employees, who got their paycheck from City Hall, signed by Daley, who worked the wards come election day, making sure people voted for the Democrat of their choice, sometimes taking voters to the polling places if they didn’t have a ride.
In the poor black neighborhoods on the South Side, Daley’s man was black U.S. Representative William Dawson for twenty years, with his own machine of precinct workers who often escorted people into the polling booths and showed them what levers to pull, sometimes giving them a few bucks or some food for their hungry stomachs. For his ability to get out the vote for Daley, Dawson was called the most power black politician in America, though most people outside Chicago or Washington, D.C. didn’t know who he was.
Dead people were so prized during election time that aldermen would fight over cemeteries in redistricting of wards, to be able to deliver more votes and impress Boss Daley come Election Day. In the famous 1960 election of John F. Kennedy to president, Daley was given credit as kingmaker for delivering Chicago votes early and often for JFK, including many of his loyal dead Democrats and Dawson’s huge black turnout.
When Republicans screamed “Foul!” that Daley had stolen the election, he told them to take a hike, pay for a recount if you like, which he knew they would never do. In Chicago, Daley was in charge, and if they didn’t like it, kiss my royal Irish ass. Nixon slinked away in defeat, and Daley spent Inauguration Night in the White House with his beloved wife Eleanor “Sis.”
When Dawson died in 1972 and Daley died in 1976, the wheels of the vaunted Democratic Machine fell off, along with its ability to gather votes. This paved the way for the city’s first black Mayor, Harold Washington, who was able to win the Democratic primary with 36 percent of the vote, most of them coming from the black wards on the South and West Sides, where his volunteers gathered votes, along with Latinos and Lake Front Liberals.
Harold won the general election in the fall, beating back Republican Bernard Epton, who was supported by Daley’s white Democratic aldermen, 51.7 to 48 percent, again most of it coming from the black wards, where no one knew, or questioned, who was actually doing the voting, or if those voters were legally eligible to vote, or alive, since the massive, poor black neighborhoods contained tens of thousands who had no social security cards, drivers licenses, mailing address. But they could still vote the Chicago way.
After Harold died suddenly in 1987, the registering and harvesting of black and poor votes would be taken up by a radical, Marxist group, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), who were there, they said, to empower and give voice to the poor and black and disenfranchised, but really there to get their radical candidates elected.
As in other poor and black neighborhoods in cities across the country, ACORN volunteers registered anyone live or dead they could find, including dogs and cats, babies, clerks in fast food restaurants, people passed out in doorways, and submit the names to the elections offices, often with the same signatures of the ACORN volunteers. They did the same in poor black cities across the country.
In January, 1993, an article in Chicago Magazine featured the leader of ACORN’s Project Vote in Illinois, a young mixed-race Harvard educated lawyer named Barack Obama, who the article said looked like he might be destined for greater things.
ACORN and its vote gatherers would be crucial to Barack’s political career. When he was a U.S. Senator, he told a conference of ACORN volunteers, “You know you’ve got a friend in me. I’ve always been a partner with ACORN as well. I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career.”
In 2008, Barack’s campaign paid ACORN $800,000 to help it with registering breathing and unbreathing voters for his presidential bid. After the election, John McCain’s campaign charged that ACORN had stolen the election. Mitt Romney’s people did the same in 2012, though by then ACORN had filed for bankruptcy, having lost donations due to voter fraud and internal embezzlement, it’s voter registration drives taken up by former ACORN leaders.
Barack’s people would dismiss both McCain’s and Romney’s charges as baseless, an attempt to disenfranchise the poor and people of color who had fought so hard for the right to vote, or someone to vote for them.
ACORN was not around in 2016 when Hillary suffered the devastating loss for the Democrats against the populist Republican with the blonde combover. Barack and his Chicago pals, who were by then running the Democratic Party along with Barack’s godfather, billionaire Hungarian George Soros, who had been trying for decades to take down American capitalist democracy and create a globalist world, vowed it would never happen again.
They already had in their trick bag an electronic voting machine company – Dominion Voting Systems –that the Obama Justice Department in 2010, under the guise of an anti-trust action, had turned into the dominant player in electronic voting, and would become an essential election tool of the new radical Democratic Party headed by Obama and Soros.
Dominion machines and software were capable of manipulating and changing voting results within its algorithms. It was developed in Canada and promoted as a way to “mobilize” voters who were inclined not to vote. A perfect tool for the radicals, taking ACORN’s antiquated human system of voter registration and voting into the tech age.
Within two weeks of the DOJ action in 2010, Dominion soon acquired an EVS company called Sequoia, which was formally spun off from a parent named Smartmatic, a UK based EVS vendor owned by Lord Mark Malloch Brown, a good friend of Soros’ who sits on the board of George’s $18 Open Society Foundations. Smartmatic software had been used by Caesar Chavez to “win” the Venezuelan referendum in 2004. Soon after the Obama DOJ “anti-trust” action, and Dominion acquired Smartmatic’s assets, Dominion’s share of the U.S. EVS market jumped to 50%.
Dominion would donate money to the Clinton Foundation, Hillary and Bill’s pay for play scam helped along by Soros, and a former staffer of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was hired as a lobbyist. Barack and his Chicago pals would remain in the shadows.
In its move to get Dominion machines into Democratic run states, there would be Chicago-style corruption, with state officials and/or their relatives getting kickbacks to accept Dominion Voting Systems as their provider.
In the 2020 election, Dominion machines were in at least 24 states, including all the battleground states of Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Michigan, where on election night one county official caught 6,000 votes switched from Trump to Biden inside a voting machine, which was caught and corrected.
But after 2016, Barack and George knew that Dominion alone would not be enough to swing the upcoming election back to the Democrats, no matter who their candidate was. They would need mail in ballots, and harvesters to get them to polling places, like ACORN had done.
So up would step Barack’s 30,000-member Organizing for Action non-profit, which he mobilized after Trump won. They would be sent out in the 2018 mid-terms to help guarantee Democratic victories in strongholds California, Washington and Oregon and New York, and gave us the radical socialists Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – the Squad – who would be sent to Congress not to make laws, but to attack and confound the Republican establishment, Alinsky-style.
But that was just a dry run for the Big Enchilada: regaining the White House in 2020 and removing the capitalist with the blonde combover.
In 2019, before the coronavirus hit the country, Oregon Democratic U.S. Senator Ron Wyden proposed a Vote by Mail Act, which would allow all states to send out mail-in ballots. The Progressive states CA, WA, NY, IL, CO, OR, NV and Arizona had already been sending mail-in ballots to their entire unverified voter lists that included people who had moved and many deceased, and allowed for “voter harvesting” of those ballots by third parties, which had been key to the Democrats taking control of the House in 2018.
Then in early 2020 a mysterious virus came from China, which Barack’s network CNN told us was the next Black Plague where millions would die, and his loyal governors and mayors, many installed after 2016, declared states of emergency and shut down entire cities and states, tossing millions into the fear of unemployment and the rest ordered to stay in their homes, or “shelter in place.”
In March, in the first month of the COVID-19 lockdown, Soros’ OPS gave money to the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law, to come up with a plan for mail-in voting for all America, to keep voters safe from the coronavirus during the November election. The Brennan Center came back with a proposal for “universal vote-by-mail options for all voters,” including inactive and recently purged voters.”
By September, over a hundred million mail-in ballots were sent out to unverified voting list with dead people and those no longer living in the states, with stalwarts NY, IL, CO, CA, WA, OR, MN, leading the way, and the “battleground” states of AZ, MI, NV, WI, PA, GA, with Democratic legislature in states like PA changing laws that said signatures on the ballots didn’t have to match those on record.
There would be cries from Republicans, including Attorney General William Barr, that mail-in ballots were ripe for corruption. But Barack would get up at the funeral of civil rights leader John Lewis and preach that anyone against mail in ballots is a racist.
“Even as we sit here,” he said from the pulpit on July 30th, with Lewis’ flag-draped coffin before him, and Bill Clinton and Nancy Pelosi two of the few white faces in the pews, “there are people in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations, and targeting minorities with restricted ID laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the run up to an election.” He got a standing ovation from the mourners.
Meanwhile, his Organizing for Action minions went to work harvesting ballots, thousands from poor and black districts like in the ACORN days, voting many of them themselves. More than 100 million ballots – 43 percent of the electorate – were sent in early, most dropped in drop boxes, before election day.
Most were marked for Joe Biden, sent in weeks before the second debate when Joe’s early dementia came to national light, when he said he was going to end the fossil fuel economy, and news of his son Hunter’s laptop, which detailed the tens of millions of dollars he made from foreign governments in kickbacks for access to his father, including China and Russia and Ukraine.
But Barack’s media and his fact-checkers in Big Tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook would suppress Joe’s dementia and his son’s corruption, so maybe that didn’t matter anyway.
Much of Trump’s base would go to the polls election day, despite the coronavirus scare, and he would get eight million more votes than he did in 2016. But Joe would receive more votes than any candidate in history, even more than Barack.
On election night, in the battleground states, the Dominion software kicked in, switching votes from Trump to Biden, counting Biden votes multiple times while not counting Trump votes, opening a “back door” in the software to allow votes to enter after the system was shut down.
In corrupted cities like Philadelphia and Detroit – every bit as sleazy as Chicago – Biden ballots were run through Dominion machines multiple times and Republican poll watchers were bulled away from watching by Democratic machine hacks.
In Pennsylvania, Trump’s lawyers would later say that there were 632,000 illegal votes counted for Biden that either were not inspected, as required by law, or the envelopes were thrown away and no signatures compared. Tens of thousands of mail-in ballots were backdated so they qualified.
In Detroit, the voting was stopped when Trump was ahead and 100,000 ballots were brought in at 4 a.m. and counted, all for Biden. There were allegedly 10,000 people who don’t live in Nevada who voted there. Ten thousand dead people voted in Michigan alone. Ballot harvesting in nursing homes in Pennsylvania alone involved 25,000 residents. Trump’s lawyers would get thousands of affidavits on poll watchers being kept from observing the voting, and on and on.
None of the corruption would be reported on by Barack’s loyal media. When Trump tweeted that their was massive election fraud, his tweet was deleted. CNN anchors got on the next day and in there most sincere faces told its viewers there was no evidence of fraud. The New York Times ran a banner headline – The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud.
Barack got on 60 Minutes that Sunday to promote his new book The Promised Land, and sitting before the portrait of Abraham Lincoln said in his most diplomatic, philosophical tones that the president should have conceded the next day, for the good of the country. He and interviewer Scott Pelly agreed that the allegations of fraud were dividing the country and giving America a bad name in the world.
Joe Biden would go ahead and declare himself the winner, as the media had, before the results were official, and proceed to announce is transition team, while Trump’s lawyers filed their lawsuits.
And somewhere up above, or maybe it was from down below, the congratulatory chuckle of Mayor Richard J. Daley could be heard, knowing he had been completely out sleazed.
