A progressive publication admits that there was a conspiracy, and legislative tricks and propaganda won the election for Biden…
There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.
The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted.
[OCS: Free and fair, credible and uncorrupted – but favoring a radical, corrupt, and impaired Democrat candidate who did little or no campaigning and lied about his shifting positions on almost every issue.]
For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President. Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.
[OCS: Yes, the activity was mostly on the left and did include establishment Republicans who were shut out of power and access to generate profit – the anti-Trumpers.
The calamitous nature of the election was created by these very same people who relaxed identification requirements, verifications checks and implemented illegally and unconstitutionally altered election laws to enable large-scale mail ballots, extended deadlines, and the consolidation of counting centers into mega-centers where poll watchers could observe not everything.]
Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. “The untold story of the election is the thousands of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy at its very foundation,” says Norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama Administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats to the board of the Voter Protection Program.
This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election, based on access to the group.
That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.
[OCS: It should scare every American that this cabal was trying to influence perceptions (psyops), steer media coverage, and control the flow of information (propaganda).
Wordplay – “they were not rigging the election, they were ‘fortifying’ it.” If you are altering the system, you are rigging it to favor your ideology and desired outcome. And the outcome was “No Trump” which benefits the radical progressive Democrats.]
Sometime in the fall of 2019, Mike Podhorzer became convinced the election was headed for disaster–and determined to protect it.
This was not his usual purview. For nearly a quarter-century, Podhorzer, senior adviser to the president of the AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest union federation, has marshaled the latest tactics and data to help its favored candidates win elections.
[OCS: How many people know that the head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, is a communist sympathizer if not a communist?
Trumka, Sweeney and Chavez-Thompson also rescinded a founding AFL-CIO rule that banned Communist Party members and loyalists from leadership positions within the Federation and its unions. Instead, the “New Voice” triumvirate welcomed Communist Party delegates to positions of power in the Federation. This move to open the previously patriotic union to subversives delighted the CPUSA, which declared itself “in complete accord” with the troika’s new AFL-CIO program. “The radical shift in both leadership and policy is a very positive, even historic change,” wrote CPUSA National Chairman Gus Hall in 1996 about the Trumka/Sweeney/Chavez-Thompson takeover.
All told, Trumka’s AFL-CIO disseminated 28.6 million pieces of literature promoting Democrats in the 2010 midterms. In one letter, Trumka told union members that “as bad as things are, they can get a whole lot worse.” In the end, Democrats suffered one of the most decisive midterm election defeats in American history, losing 6 Senate seats, more than 60 House seats, and 7 governorships. But Trumka was unfazed. The day after the elections, he credited labor unions for having helped Democrats retain a majority in the Senate, albeit a slim one. “We did our job,” he said. “I think [Democrats] are cognizant of what we did and if they aren’t they should pay heed to it.” Moreover, Trumka portrayed the election results as a “mandate for creating jobs and fixing the economy” and as a repudiation of Republican policies. Communist Party USA Labor Commission chairman Scott Marshall, meanwhile, proudly emphasized that his organization had worked hard with Trumka to promote Democrat candidates. <Source>

Why are the progressives now admitting that there was a group that conspired to alter the election dynamics?
With election cases headed to the Supreme Court, lawsuits pursuing discovery, and credible journalists finding time to write books, the truth will come out. So the progressive socialist democrats are conditioning the media battlefield by acknowledging some of the events that have taken place. Part of a steady slow-drip of information that will allow the denial of a “secret” cabal because the mainstream media clearly disseminated the information. Followed by Hillary Clinton’s favorite line, “Old news – move along.”
Who is going to investigate the manipulation of our elections? The Biden Administration? I think not!
Who is going to restore integrity to the election process? The Biden Administration?
What are the Republicans going to do with this information? Not a damn thing if they follow the historical pattern and practice of the modern GOP.
Remember the old quote, “Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.”
We are so screwed.
