God spare us a fraudulent outcome

While the U.S. presidential election has yet to be decided, “vote dumps” in contested states involving large numbers of ballots produced long after the polls closed – with every single one cast for Joe Biden – suggest that a winner may be fraudulently declared in the near future.

Obviously, what is at stake is much more than the American people’s waning confidence in their election processes.

If Vice President Biden wins under these circumstances, it seems most unlikely that his presidency will be considered legitimate by the roughly half of the electorate that voted in good faith for his opponent. And subsequent efforts by him – or his running mate – to impose a platform promising radical, socialist economic, judicial and national security changes that was broadly rejected by so many Americans will precipitate, at best, paralysis and, at worst, terrible national trauma.

God help us.

This is Frank Gaffney.
