I have not posted much about the elections other than to share evidence of elections fraud, which is substantial. However, I think we’ve had election fraud for some time now…its just that this time it was obvious and egregious. Now, our government is seeking to implement new “domestic terrorism” legislation, which seems to be targeted at Trump supporters. I have not focused on the presidential transition because I felt it was a distraction from more important underlying issues. Having said that, the inauguration of President Biden marks an important shift. Below, I post two articles, one by The Saker and one by Steve Lendman, which I think offer helpful perspectives. I do not necessarily agree with every point made by The Saker and Lendman, but each offers insight…recommended reading. Of note, The Saker points out that the rest of the world that watches the U.S. as its power, influence, and respect diminish every year…this year’s election laid bare our vulnerabilities.
