China is shipping tens of thousands of highly sophisticated, counterfeit driver licenses into the United States as we are less than three months out from a national election. The counterfeiting from China is out of control at this point. Yet with every utterance from the Deep State, the media and the Democrat Party, our democracy is once again under assault from Russia.
The good news is that the Border Patrol is catching a lot of China’s counterfeit election meddling documents. The bad news? We don’t know how much is getting through.
Is anyone else exhausted by the mainstream media’s Russia narrative yet? Everyone from Nancy Pelosi to our ubiquitous intelligence alphabet agencies continues to tell us that “Russia” is meddling in our elections. Even Secretary of State Mike Pompeo parroted the line the other day, claiming that “China, Russia and other actors” are actively trying to undermine the election.
It seems odd that we never hear any details about how this “Russian election meddling” is being done. Let’s make a deal with the elites:
If any public official, celebrity, media pundit or bureaucrat wishes to lecture us on Russian election meddling ever again, they must first tell us the name of one of these Russians involved in the alleged hacking of our democracy. Just one. There must be thousands of these Russian spies involved in the effort, so we’ll set the bar really low. Tell us the name of one.
There is a catch, however. This must be a Russian who is physically present in the United States. If a Russian teenager with 25 followers on Twitter sends out a mean tweet about Kamala Harris – that’s not election meddling. Also, the “physically present” requirement of the deal is because election machines in the US are not hooked up to the internet. They can’t be hacked from overseas. The machines have to be “hacked” with a screwdriver in order to change votes.
Give us the name of one Russian, present inside the US, who is trying to undermine the election. Also, we would like some specifics about what the alleged meddling entails. If an elected official, Hollywood celebrity or other geopolitical professional can’t give us those details, then they should be required to shut up about Russia, preferably forever.
This doesn’t seem like too much to ask for, since it is the narrative that has consumed the entire country ever since Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager made up a rumor about “Russian hacking” back in 2016.
When it comes to Chinese election meddling, there’s nothing ubiquitous, mysterious or squirrely about it. We have concrete examples of what they’re up to.
George Floyd was contacted by the police in Minneapolis when he tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill that was manufactured in China. As Floyd was being arrested, he overdosed on Fentanyl that was produced in China. George Floyd’s Made-in-China death was seized upon by Antifa and Black Lives Matter to carry out two straight months of urban unrest in an election year. If anyone is naïve enough to believe that Antifa and BLM are not being actively aided, abetted, funded and encouraged by Beijing, that person is going to be in for a big surprise in the next few months when the organizational structures of these groups are finally revealed.
Which side do you think deserves more credit for “election meddling” this year: BLM and Antifa – or Vladimir Putin’s Russian spies?
But China’s election meddling efforts are even more on-the-nose than that. Customs and Border Protection agents just seized a shipment of 20,000 counterfeit driver licenses in Detroit, MI. Fake IDs don’t seem to be a very efficient method of voter fraud (because it’s a one-to-one deal), but it could get the job done in a state like Michigan.
Donald Trump won Michigan in 2016 by just 10,704 votes. The state was his closest victory over Hillary Clinton. Do you think 20,000 extra votes, thanks to counterfeit IDs, could make a difference in 2020? You bet it could.
Customs officers have also been catching fake IDs at the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport. They’ve seized about 2,000 fake IDs – all of which originated in China – over the past 18 months. The Detroit shipment was the largest batch that the Border Patrol has caught in one incident. You have to wonder how many counterfeit IDs from China have slipped through and are being used right now for fraudulent voter registration purposes. Fake IDs also go hand-in-hand with vote-by-mail when it comes to election fraud.
