You make great valid points.
Please let me clarify a couple of things. First, the states that I am talking about did sit with their vote count stating 100% counted for what I remembered over 24 hours. It was the map which I think all the sites had up from the AP. I kept going back and rechecking and rechecking. Finally I emailed the AP complaining about it and asked why they would have the count sitting at 100% and then not calling the vote. It is not something that I heard, it was something that I experienced. Things were so crazy that I even question myself about the date and time and the duration. But it is my belief that it was over 24 hours. For sure it spanned throughout the day and for sure it wasn’t until a night passed that it was changed to reflect less than 100%. The AP website should have my email to them as that documented it. They never responded back to me. So you can fact check if you want. You can take my word for it or dismiss my word because you don’t know me from Adam. But, it was not something that I heard from someone else. I am sorry that I did not make that clear enough in my post that it happened to me and not someone else that I heard about.
About the press calling early. Yes, in my opinion the AP called early. They called before the numbers should have allowed them to on certain states according to their map. Their explanation was that they could see by the mail in votes that they were mostly all for Biden backing the statement up by the fact that Trump had encouraged his supporters to not use mail in. Not all the press agreed with the AP. There were some of the press who refused to call those states and made posts on line saying exactly what I am saying. Again, I welcome you to fact check.
I completely agree that Trump was acting in an incredibly unprofessional manner and that he was disrespectful of the process and contributed greatly to the stress, chaos, and anxiety. I think that Biden handled himself with dignity and restraint. Please do not get me wrong, my posts were not to promote Trump. I truly am neutral. I really believe it is God’s job to clean up this mess we humans have gotten ourselves into. But in the meantime, I respect our country, realize that it exists because God lets it exist, and appreciate the privilege of living here.
I am neutral as far as Trump or Biden becoming president. I do recognize that well-respected Republicans are publicly shaming the President for his bad behavior and they should. Trump stirred up a lot of trouble and most of what he said was outrageous. But Trump was the obvious elephant in the middle of the room. Were there other sources out there making me feel played as well? Quieter sources that we don’t see because we are all focused on Trump.
As far as the media goes, I do believe that the media moguls pull the strings as far as how the general content slants. I do not believe that everyone in the media is corrupt. But I think that it is fairly apparent that the media is used for propaganda purposes and if one goes directly to source documents during and after WWII you will see that military intelligence has had a very long relationship with the media. The free press in the US theoretically should be unbias. I really do not want to choose the newspaper that I read based on if it will tell me what I want to hear. I want to know even the stuff that I don’t want to hear. I just want the facts, not opinion. I think most every fresh idealistic news person goes into that profession for this noble goal and I think most of them retire out still clinging to the same. However, I think in some organizations when the final product of the day is put together, there are powers within that shape content in a not so noble way. And, within any organization there can be those who look noble but can be bought for a more sinister cause. All this is not as obvious of a mind play to the public as that given by Trump, however. It is much more subtle but just as powerful. So that is another point I was trying to make.
As far as Biden goes, on the outside he has a calm, quiet demeanor. However, he comes from the same group of democrats that have a lot to hide. Like the Republicans they have dirt under their carpets as well. Yes, Trump taught us to not trust fake news. I believe that he and everyone else was played with the planting of fake conspiracy stories. Fake news would be more the propaganda that Trump complained about. The conspiracy is more of the stuff that Trump has promised to jail the past presidents and Hilary for if re-elected. How much he has on them that is true and how much is fake I have no idea .I do believe that there are real conspiracy out there. But the fake conspiracies when they are believed, acted upon and then found out to be untrue negates the validity of any true conspiracy out there in public opinion… So did this true and fake conspiracy phenomena play a hand in the drama that unfolded with the election? It drove Trumps campaign. If he had anything true on the Democrats, did that influence messages given to Biden’s followers as well? Were there powers on both sides sending out messages that resulted in a country divided, carrying guns, and preparing for violence whichever direction the vote went? I don’t know but I think the question should be asked.
As far as the election workers and overseers, I believe that they are honest and did their duty admirably. I think they went over and above in the most uncomfortable of circumstances. But remember, the election is computerized and much of the actual count is automated after cards are pulled out and authenticated. I think that the end numbers probably will all be very accurate. I guess it is the timing of the numbers being reported and put on that board caused so much tension that it made me wonder if it was on purpose for drama sake.
I agree, I like the New York Times investigative reporting.
I think this is my last post. I get way too wordy. Sorry. Thank you for your comments to my post. You helped me think about my questions in a different light. You sound really fair and unbiased towards both parties and just entertained my question posed. Peace and prosperity to you.
