It’s Friday, so some feedback, which has flooded me this turbulent week. One respondent simply said “go to hell”, another accused me of being a child trafficker, a third sent a selfie of his middle finger.
I’ll be a few of the more outspoken. Several readers of CEO Daily remain convinced that the November election was faked by fraud.
“The evidence is everywhere if you want to search for it … voting laws are changed by officials, when that is the competence of the state legislature alone … reversal of hundreds of thousands of votes in the early hours of the morning … hundreds of them. affidavits from people who have witnessed many violations and ballots. “
“It’s a shame if you don’t recognize voter fraud when the evidence is clearly presented. Nothing to see here folks, go on. Pathetic.”
TD suggested that the view that the election was riddled with fraud has become so widespread that it needs to be addressed. His suggestion:
“What if Biden set up a huge committee, led by the most conservative figures imaginable, to thoroughly evaluate this?”
Maybe that will help. But if people aren’t convinced by Trump’s Attorney General, Trump’s Department of Homeland Security, the election officials of all 50 states, and the judges in more than 60 courts, why would they be convinced by a committee?
A few respondents also wondered why the attack on the Capitol caused so much outrage in the media, when the violence that accompanied this summer’s racial protests did not.
“After spending months exaggerating, trivializing, and denying significantly more violent, destructive, and widespread violence, would we suddenly be angry if extremists on the right took a page from the same script?”
Then there was the comment on my note that many business leaders hoped for a divided government to dampen the tendencies of the progressive wing of the Democrats.
Some of your readers like me are Democrats who are relieved that the Senate is in the hands of the Democrats. I am so tired of “progressive” fear. Joe Biden is a moderate.
And finally this, in answer to my rhetorical question about how democracy can survive in a world where facts are there for the taking:
It persists as leaders begin to tell the truth about issues and events. It starts with realizing that leaders realize they have been chosen to serve the people and the nation, not themselves. It starts by holding those responsible for this s-t show to account. It starts with people like you who have a platform and the respect of many people who push leaders to move away from their selfish attitudes and behaviors. “
I end with that. Glad the week is almost over. More news below. And don’t forget to read David Z. Morris’s instructive analysis of what happened here Wednesday.
