How to Effectively rig an Election
1. Leverage all of your establishment friends that you have accumulated over the years. There are roughly 712 super delegates expected to cast their vote at the democratic convention on July 25th. As of right now, it is expected for Clinton to receive 571 votes from super delegates, and 48 votes for Sanders. This means that 93 super delegates are still unbound. However, it is important to note that these numbers are based on surveyed results and do not mean anything until they actually vote. Check out the list of super delegates and how they are going to decide the 2016 Democratic Primary.
2. Consistently tell the same lie to make it seem as if it is true. Between gun control, NAFTA and many other instances, her stance on gay marriage seems to be the best documented account. This example starts with Anderson Cooper at a democratic debate, and then evidence to support it is provided.
Anderson Cooper: “You were against same-sex marriage. Now you’re for it. You defended President Obama’s immigration policies. Now you say they’re too harsh. You supported his trade deal dozen of times. You even called it the “gold standard”. Now, suddenly, last week, you’re against it.”
Hillary Clinton: “Well, actually, I have been very consistent. Over the course of my entire life, I have always fought for the same values and principles, but, like most human beings — including those of us who run for office — I do absorb new information. I do look at what’s happening in the world.”
2002: Chris Matthews: “Do you think New York State should recognize gay marriage?”
Hillary Clinton: “No.”
2004: Hillary Clinton: “I believe that marriage is not just a bond, but a sacred bond between a man and a woman.”
2010: Hillary Clinton: “I have not supported same-sex marriage. I have supported civil partnerships and contractual relationships.”
2013: Hillary Clinton: “I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law.”
2014: Terry Gross (NPR Radio): “So you are saying your opinion on gay marriage changed?”
Hillary Clinton: “I really, I have to say, I think you are very persistent but you are playing with my words and playing with what is such an important issue.”
Terry Gross: “I am just trying to clarify so I can understand.”
Hillary Clinton: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify. I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed and now I am in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel like I think you are implying and repudiate it. I have a strong record. I have a great commitment to this issue and I am proud of what I’ve done and the progress were making.”
3. Utilize your media donors to blackout your opponents campaign. Politico gathered a list of media company’s and people who have donated to the Clinton campaign. Here are a few:
4. Funnel money through your Foundation to your campaign. It is illegal for foreign countries to give donations to U.S. political candidates, to avoid influence on decision making. However, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she funneled money through the Clinton Foundation, which is fine by current law, but a massive loophole in our system. A few of her “kind” donors include: between $10–25 million from Saudi Arabia and $2.35 million + $500,000 from Russia after executing deals for Uranium One.
5. Funnel money through a fund to help down ballot candidates to your own campaign. As of right now, individual donors can give a maximum donation of $2,700. However, if you know how to beat the system, you can receive checks worth over $350,000, as Hillary Clinton did. How? Through the Victory for Hillary Fund. The purpose was to give down-ballot candidates money to run their campaign. However, the Clinton Campaign transferred the funds to the DNC, whereas the DNC then gave the majority of that money back to the Clinton Campaign. According to a POLITICO analysis of the latest Federal Election Commission filings, “Less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by that effort has stayed in the state parties’ coffers.”
6. Cut polling locations by 30–80%, to make it difficult to vote. States such as Arizona cut polling locations by roughly 70% to “Save money.” However, it led to long delays, investigations, and angry voters. If ballots ran short, you were given a provisional ballot, which is essentially saying: hey, thanks for voting, but this one does not count. This holds true, as many provisional ballots are disregarded and not counted in the primary.
7. Ensure independents — 45% of the U.S. voter population — cannot vote in a primary. The biggest example of this happened in the New York primary. Over 3.2 million people could not vote in the democratic primary because you had to register by October, despite the election being in April.
8. Have the media call the election for you to discourage voters from voting in future elections. It all started with the Associated Press. Before the critical California primary on June 7th, they counted super delegates, and projected Hillary Clinton as the democratic nominee, despite well knowing that super delegates are yet to vote. This was intended to discourage voters and hopefully keep them away from the polls.
9. Pay over $1,000,000 for bots and internet trolls to promote your posts, report negative (but real) posts about you or your campaign, and essentially delete your history from the internet. Shaun King, of the New York Daily News stated, “As head of the Correct The Record Super PAC for Hillary Clinton, David Brock has launched something called Barrier Breakers — an online mob of paid trolls designed to attack any and every person who says one cross word about Hillary Clinton on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, or elsewhere.” What is interesting here is that David Brock has a history of cheating, lying, and misrepresenting facts. It is almost like a match made in heaven.
10. Work with Google, the most commonly used search engine, to alter search results on you, to make it seem as if you are a saint. Google owns roughly 72% of the search engine market. There are two ex-Google employees aiding Clinton that play an interesting role in her campaign. First is Stephanie Hannon, a former Google employee and the Chief Technology Officer for helping Clinton. Second, is the CEO of Alphabet, Inc., Google’s parent company, Eric Schmidt. The GroundWork, which he created, is a stealth business and little is known about it, but has a mission to put Clinton in the White House. Various testing of phrases on Google’s search engine versus other search engines, such as Yahoo, shows how searches were manipulated by Google to erase negative comments about Hillary Clinton. This video shows the various phrases. One example is typing “Hillary Clinton C..” and receiving results on Google such as “Hillary Clinton Crime Bill,” whereas both Bing and Yahoo showed “Hillary Clinton Corruption.” Google is far more powerful than we know.
In previous years I supported Hillary Clinton and was excited to see our first Woman President. Nonetheless, Elizabeth Warren or Jill Stein are far more preferable and capable. You cannot cheat and degrade your opponents supporters and then expect to receive their votes if you win the nomination. People should not have to compromise their values to elect a democrat or republican. Whoever is best for the job should be elected.
