'Red mirage': the 'insidious' scenario if Trump declares an early victory

 

The situation could develop if the president appears to be leading on election night before all votes are counted – and for some officials, it’s too realistic for words

...

Known as the “red mirage”, the scenario could develop if Trump appears to be leading in the presidential race late on election night and declares victory before all the votes are counted.

 

The red mirage “sounds like a super-villain, and it’s just as insidious”, the former Obama administration housing secretary Julían Castro says in a video recorded as a public service announcement to voters this week.

 

“On election night, there’s a real possibility that the data will show Republicans leading early, before all the votes are counted. Then they can pretend something sinister’s going on when the counts change in Democrats’ favor.”

 

In the scenario, Trump’s declaration of victory is echoed on the conservative TV network Fox News and by powerful Republicans across the US. By the time final returns show that in fact Joe Biden has won the presidency, perhaps days later, the true election result has been dragged into a maelstrom of disinformation and chaos.

It seems that the Biden supporters are declaring victory which is being echoed on DNC media outlets while the court battles are just getting started.

 

Who could have predicted that the Guardian was engaged in gaslighting?   🤡

Even the actual news side (about four hours of every day) of Fox News knows what's what.

 

Quote

Fox News anchor Bret Baier used the term “president-elect” on the air when getting an update from his colleague Bill Hemmer, who has been stationed at the network’s electoral map.

“If the president were to get [Pennsylvania], he’d be at 274,” Hemmer said. “But at the moment, it appears that that is getting further and further from his grasp. And if you make a call for Joe Biden at 264, the math is pretty obvious. In Pennsylvania, that would give him 284 electoral votes.”

 

“And he would become the president-elect of the United States,” Baier said.

“That is correct,” Hemmer said.

It's much worse than that. A comment I posted on Reddit.

 

Wow the incompetence of the Democrats never ceases to amaze me. So what is Fox News,most important, the most influential, and by far thhe most watched news program in America, doing now the election is mostly finished. It's running 7/24 baseless rumors that the election is being stolen. Whipping up a frenzy about how if we don't stop them the election will be stolen and the Democrats will impose socialism on America!
 
Soooo what is the Left doing to counter this propaganda?
 
Nothing!
 
Instead they are debating whether Hispanics/Latinos join Asians and be classified as white (aka racists nazis white supremacists) because they voted in big numbers for Trump?
 
While Biden did win the handwriting is on the wall for the Dems

The utopian left always found more enemies among themselves than on the right.

"Rupert Murdoch-owned US outlets turn on Trump, urging him to act with 'grace'"

 

Quote

Fox News, Wall Street Journal and New York Post all show stark change of tone as their former champion faces ‘presidential endgame’

 

Multiple Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative media outlets in the United States have shifted their messaging in a seeming effort to warn readers and viewers that Donald Trump may well have lost the presidential election.

 

The new messaging appears to be closely coordinated, and it includes an appeal to Trump to preserve his “legacy” by showing grace in defeat. The message is being carried on Fox News and in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – all outlets avidly consumed by Trump himself, especially Fox.

Well, lookie lookie, all this time it was the QanAssholes who were making fake ballots. Every fucking time these Trumper guys say the Democrats are doing something bad, they're really just telegraphing that they are doing it. Haha! Mooks.

Two armed Virginia men who were arrested Thursday outside the Philadelphia Convention Center were "coming to deliver a truck full of fake ballots" to the city, CNN affiliate KYW reported, citing prosecutors.

The center is one of the places where election workers have been counting votes from the 2020 general election, which includes the race for president.

Text messages reveal that the men were concerned about the tallying of votes at the convention center, prosecutors said, according to KYW.

Antonio LaMotta, 61, and Joshua Macias, 42, both of Chesapeake, Virginia, were arrested Thursday night outside the center on suspicion of carrying handguns in Pennsylvania without permits, authorities said.

Philadelphia police said they found the men Thursday night after receiving a tip that people with firearms were heading to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in a silver Hummer truck.

Officers found a silver Hummer a block from the center -- parked and unoccupied -- around 10:20 p.m. Thursday, about seven minutes before finding the men, who acknowledged the Hummer was theirs, police said.

Both men were carrying loaded handguns, and police found an AR-type rifle in the Hummer, authorities said at a news conference Friday. About 160 rounds of ammunition were found in the weapons and the vehicle, authorities said.

Stickers and a hat with logos of the QAnon conspiracy movement were found in the vehicle, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said.

LaMotta and Macias were charged with having a concealed firearm without a license and carrying a firearm on a public street or public property, Krasner said.
