President Trump’s last “Hail Mary”

By Ed Timperlake

On January 6, 2021 the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to validate the Electoral College votes for the Vice-President of U.S. The Senate will concurrently vote to validate the Presidential Electoral votes.

However, the Biden victory is now already being validated in the U.S. Court of Public Opinion.

Those ballots will be sent to Washington, where they will be counted by Congress on January 6. Once that happens, Biden will be inaugurated the 46th President on January 20 at noon.

But not so fast.

If any Senator objects then the validation vote is put on hold for a full debate.

Thus, it is so very important that the foreign influence in the 2020 election is made known for all Americans.

Unfortunately, that sunlight of transparency process has been inexcusably delayed.

Emerald Robinson: “We’ve heard from sources that there is raw intelligence that is pretty damning and much more expansive on the efforts of China implemented in order to counter a possibility that there would be a Trump second term… The fact that Ratcliffe is waiting for that to be included is that there is a portion of the intelligence community that is refusing to sign off or to conduct a detrimental assessment of China and its efforts.”

Unmasking right now illegal foreign influence is critical.

This is because so far Senator McConnell gave guidance to all Senators to not oppose the inevitability of former Senator Biden becoming President even with all the validated evidence of the domestic steal because that hard evidence of corruption obviously did not move the political needle for Senate

However, a brilliant  unified Intelligence Community report saying China stole the election for Biden, coupled with the recent courageous Aussie “Five Eyes” data dump of global China spy influence, would put the Senate in a very awkward situation of voting to  actually  personally validate China’s candidate.

If Australia can demonstrate courage fortitude and resolve in countering PRC spycraft what  happened to the American Intelligence Community?

Melbourne: Amid simmering tensions between Australia and China, the media here on Monday reported a major data leak containing official records like party position, birthdate, national ID number and ethnicity of nearly two million alleged members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) living and working across the world.

The data leak obtained by ‘The Australian’ newspaper has revealed how the alleged CPC members are employed with some of the world’s biggest corporations in the areas of defence, banks and pharmaceutical giants manufacturing coronavirus vaccines.

How did such an important  missed opportunity come to pass?

William Evanina was hired out of FBI by John Brennan CIA and rewarded and promoted by General Clapper DNI while somehow making a transition into a political appointment in the Trump Administration.

He rang a very symbolic Intelligence fire-bell in the night that our 2020 election was going to be compromised  by “foreign threats.”

Statement by NCSC Director William Evanina: Election Threat Update for the American Public

On July 24, 2020, I issued a statement to the American public providing an unclassified overview of foreign threats to the 2020 election and offering basic steps to mitigate some of these threats. At that time, I pledged that the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) would continue to update the American public and other key stakeholders on the evolving election threat landscape, while also safeguarding our intelligence sources and methods.

That very public warning was 146 days ago.

Now leaks by “senior officials” in the IC are trying to use President Obama’s artful turn of phrase “throwing shade” to polarize an issue that accrues to former Senator Biden’s advantage by giving the fake news a story line that foreign influence is not assured so their partnership in grand theft election can successfully limp the Democratic  ticket across the election goal line.

What is going on?

The IC is not ready given 45 days since the most corrupt election in American history to tell the people who pay their salary that they simply need more time.

A posting on KMJ-talk radio actually tries to do the issue justice on presenting many responsible  senior individuals being alert to foreign threats:

Ratcliffe and other Trump appointees – including National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, and Attorney General William Barr – noted over the summer China posed a bigger election threat than Russia.

In recent months, they have issued a barrage of warnings that China was covertly attempting to sway American politics and culture from state legislatures to Hollywood movies and from college campuses to Disney theme parks.

U.S. intelligence agencies cited China and Iran for their attempts at 2020 election interference, with his supporters saying those nations would seek to hurt Trump rather than help him.

In September, FBI Director Christopher Wray focused on Russia in an appearance before a House committee, saying it was seeking to hurt Biden’s presidential campaign through social media and influence operations.

Although Wray testified China also was trying to interfere, primarily by spreading disinformation, Trump chided Wray in a tweet, saying China “is a FAR greater threat than Russia, Russia, Russia.”

Right on cue the former news channel know as Fox news managed to report a factual statement:

“This afternoon the DNI was notified by career intelligence officials that the Intelligence Community will not meet the December 18 deadline, set by Executive Order and Congress, to submit the IC’s classified assessment on foreign threats to the 2020 U.S. elections,” Amanda Schoch, Assistant DNI for Strategic Communications said in a statement to Fox News.”

My point is as a four decade on and off member of the IC, I fully understand the assessment process.

Simply pick ones cliché, “do not mirror image,” “avoid politicalizing findings and assessments” or it is often true that it is “a wilderness of mirrors” but my favorite from World War II and actually what is happening today is the mantra “bullshit baffles brains.”

I sense that artful pompous dodger John Brennan at work in all this because General Clapper is probably too dense to pull off this nasty hollow Paper Mache process con.

Honest bi-partisan profoundly deep concerns for all of us should be noted that we live in a very dangerous world and 146 days is not now seen as not enough time.

In today’s world of global danger to America  threats can be measured in minutes, hours or a few days. Right now as this is being typed, America is facing the most horrendous quick strike WMD threats since the height of the Cold War. Pick one’s scenario: China going on a full on war footing and threatening our Air/Sea forces in the Pacific, or Putin threatening the East Coast with an end of life nuc tipped torpedo.

Or finally the NORK Dear Leader going full on batshit crazy and very launching a Nuc at Alaska or Hawaii or even now CONUS with an ICBM. Iran closes in on getting a device and the Middle East exploding, or simply the potential of a terrorist network infiltrating into the U.S. a  lose Nuc “suitcase” device.

Yet it takes 146 days of alerts to miss a 45 day deadline.

All should be ashamed of themselves.

Whoever the unnamed “senior officials” protesting that they are not ready should be fired on the spot for their full on dereliction of duty.

DNI should not be suffering these fools because it is much too important for resolving in public the evidence in support of this horrible time of enemies both domestic and foreign attempting to steal the Presidency.

President Trump is trying to have his DNI throw the last “Hail Mary”  while continuing to channel his inner Churchill: Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
