New York Times Ridicules Rejecting US Election Rigging

25th October 2016 / United States

Ron Paul, three time presidential candidate (main image) said a few months ago that “More people are discovering that the system is all rigged and voting is just pacification,” during an interview with RT America. “I see elections as so much of a charade,” he said. He also suggested that the 2016 election is “a lot more entertainment than anything else” because none of the candidates “have answers” to modern political problems. See VIDEO HERE – “US elections a charade” – Ron Paul interview.

Dr Paul Craig Roberts concurs with Ron Paul and with the article written (below) by Chicago based journalist Stephen Lendman and is quoted as sayingIf the NY Times does not know this (election rigging), the organization is too stupid to justify its existence. Of course the Times knows it. But the NY Times is no longer a newspaper. It is a cog in the Ministry of Propaganda that works to create a Matrix in which brainwashed Americans accept the dictates of the Oligarchs. Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy went on to say “The purpose of the Times’ article is to discredit in advance criticism of an election that the ruling Oligarchs intend to steal. If the Times believed that Hillary would have a clear election victory, there would be no point to Fisher’s article.

By Stephen Lendman – A weekend article said America’s presidential election was stolen for Hillary before polls open on November 8.

US electoral rigging is longstanding at the federal, state and local levels – revealing sham democracy, the nation no different from despotic States and numerous others worldwide run by tyrants, not legitimately elected officials.

No one should support regimes assuming power by rigged elections. A process giving voters no say demands overwhelming rejection.

Not according to The Times, disgracefully promoting Hillary’s candidacy, relentless attacking Trump, quoting “scholars” for her like its editorial board, correspondents, columnists and contributors.

Harvard Professor of Government Steven Levitsky called rejecting November’s election “shocking,” saying “this is the stuff that we see in Russia and Venezuela…not in stable democracies anywhere.”

Fact: Since Putin’s first  presidential victory, independent monitors called Russian elections open, free and fair.

Jimmy Carter calls Venezuela’s electoral system the world’s best – the polar opposite of America’s money-controlled sham process.

The Times: In Max Fisher’s article: “In weak democracies around the world, scholars warned Friday, political leaders have used the same language to erode popular faith in democracy – often intending to incite violence that will serve their political aims, and sometimes to undo democracy entirely.”

Mr. Trump’s language, the scholars say, follows a similar playbook and could pose real, if less extreme, risks.”

Fact: If he and others don’t reject a rigged system run by power brokers for their own self-interest and their cronies, who will?

Fact: As long as “democracy” in America is a spectacle and not legitimate, it’s no different from Stalinist Russia – the former despot once saying “the people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

Monied interests usurped power in America from inception. After its 1787 Constitutional Convention, elder statesman Benjamin Franklin was asked if we had a republic or monarchy. “A republic, if you can keep it,” he replied, knowing how easily and often freedoms are lost.

Given America’s deplorable state, he’d likely say I warned you, if alive today. Tyranny threatens to become full-blown with Hillary’s ascension to power next year.

Perhaps constitutional suspension and martial law are coming following a major false flag she may have in mind once in office – a repeat of what Bush/Cheney did in 2001, only this time attacking adversaries with nuclear weapons.

Mass rejection of November’s rigged election may be the only way to stop what may doom us otherwise.
