Trump’s star rising and he’s absolutely right about stolen election

On the editorial page of The Oz today there was an article by Adam Creighton with the following heading: Trump’s star rising but he’s dead wrong about stolen election. How incredible and how disappointing, I said to myself, that the only journalist in Australia who writes honestly about the American political system has now gone over to the dark side. And then I read the article and what was absolutely clear was that the heading had completely misrepresented the contents of the story. In fact, when I opened the story at the link, this is now how the headline reads:

Trump’s rising star should force voting reform for GOP’s sake as well as Dems

Trump was miles ahead on the evening of the election and then was behind in the morning when all the counting was supposed to have ended. Here is the documentary that has brought all of this back into focus:

Here is how the doc is described by Adam Creighton in his article:

Trump screened and lauded a new documentary, 2000 Mules, at his Florida mansion for prominent friends and fans last Friday night. It was produced by conservative provocateur and author Dinesh D’Souza and a Texas not-for-profit, True the Vote.

Using vast troves of anonymised mobile phone location data – the kind that helped police arrest rioters on Capitol Hill on January 6 – the documentary suggests at least 2000 individuals in five key swing states visited at least 10 voter drop boxes and five left-wing activist organisations during the voting period. Some “mules” – those dropping off multiple ballots – visited drop boxes more than 50 times, it claim

The show also presented CCTV footage of people dropping multiple ballots off at strange hours, some wearing gloves (and a T-shirt; it clearly wasn’t to keep warm) at all hours of the night.

Of course it was a stolen election. What a notion that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were preferred to Donald Trump and Mike Pence! The question is whether these people will try the same in November for the Congressional elections. My guess is that they cannot be stopped. As Adam wrote:

Yet in 2022 it’s no exaggeration to say the Democratic Party has become obsessed with maintaining pandemic voting rules beyond the pandemic, casting anyone who wants to return to pre-2020 voting rules as a racist who is intent on “suppressing the vote”. It’s reasonable to ask why the party has become so insistent on keeping rules that it barely advocated for before 2020.

I wonder if anyone can guess the reason why.

CONTINUING THE STORY: The link to the video at Youtube has gone. Not all that surprising given the nature of the media, although it may well have just been withdrawn since, as discussed here, it is a commercially-produced documentary that is being sold:

The documentary made more than $1 million in under 12 hours on video streaming platform Rumble and its subscription platform Locals beginning at noon on Saturday. The take was “good enough to put ‘2000 Mules‘ in the estimated box office top ten for the weekend of May 6th to May 8th,” according to the video platform

As of publication deadline on Wednesday, the film was earning an enthusiastic user rating of 7.4 on the 10-point scale of definitive film industry site IMDB.

“2000 Mules” is available for purchase at $29.99 on D’Souza’s Locals channel or for free with purchase of an annual $50 subscription to his channel. The controversial film had a limited theatrical release last week and is also available for purchase or rent on

Old Ozzie in the comments has provided this link from Rumble in case it can still be reached:

I think the midterms will be when the silent majority in the US will let it rip if they don’t win. In the meantime China will do its bit to worsen discord and inflation in the US. I don’t like living in interesting times.

As the bearded man in “They Live” said, we are being lulled into a trance. I would’ve thought that the public school system’s sexualization of gradeschoolers would’ve been the final straw, but I guess not. I shudder to think what comes next.

Can you change the video link above to rumble, odessee or similar. The propagandists at youtube have already taken down your video link and were always going to do so. Big tech were up to their necks in this funding this fraud and there’s no way they are going to allow a video that exposes the truth up for people to accidentally watch.

Nothing will happen if the Dems cheat again. Everyone will get their “Don’t tread on me ” flags out and some of the 2a proponents will pose for some new photos in their camos (correct trigger discipline of course) and ask when everyone else is ready to do something.

The American empire is over. It just collapsed from exhaustion.
Trump isn’t going anywhere. DeSantis isn’t the next saviour. The deep state is just as entrenched as it was before Trump, just more brazen now.

America may rise again but it will have to descend into total anarchy first. Then the 2a guys might have the edge and something they’ll actually stand for.

I’m often wrong, so I really hope I am wrong about the fate of America and the rest of the west.

Possible scenarios?
1. A new virus
2. Same old virus, same old electoral fraud tactics?
3. An emergency of some other sort (war?) meaning suspension of the election
4. Bleeding obvious fraud followed by armed uprising, death squads, civil war.

If you’re part of the mainstream media, you have to lie (or actually believe the lie). They are not interested in seeking the truth, hence why you are better to switch them off or you will fall into the trap of believing their lies

Steve, unfortunately your contention that The Australian is asserting in a headline that Trump was “dead wrong” about election fraud is no longer correct. That headline would appear to have been an assertion by a sub-editor at The Australian some days ago and since overriden by the more accurate:

Trump’s rising star should force voting reform for GOP’s sake as well as Dems.

There is now no mention or assertion in the story about Trump being “dead wrong”.

In other words, the idea Trump was “dead wrong” about election fraud was an assertion by a newspaper subeditor in Holt Street, Surrey Hill, who had nothing to do with the research or writing of the article attributed to Adam Creighton.

This is a common problem at The Australian: galloping bias about US politics by the paper’s Sydney staff.

As it now stands, stripped of the anti-Trump bias of 90%+ of all journalists, not just The Australian’s staff, the article is a useful contribution to the discussion about widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

That is not by design. The Australian remains the worst possible place to go for accurate information about US politics and the 2020 US election in particular.

As they have such contempt for the whole democratic process and have reduced it to a caricature what happens if the other side does the same?

Next election 2 million fake Democrat votes meet 4 million fake Republican votes – what happens then?

Obama has brought the 3rd world to the USA. Although in fairness there was entrenched cheating prior to him, just well organised now by the community organiser.

May 13, 2022 9:28 am

” I shudder to think what comes next.”

Wonder no more:

“The public school system is at it again, this time mobilizing an attack on advanced placement and honors courses. In some circles, they call these “gifted” classes.

In essence, they’re meant for students who are ahead of their classmates, and give them an additional challenge.

In the name of “equity,” there’s a new trend of dismantling these courses – what teachers’ unions and special interest groups view as a toxic system based on, you know… performance.”

May 13, 2022 9:30 am

So those of us who have said Trump was cheated out of office from November 2020 until now were right and all the rest of you turkeys were wrong. Why am I not surprised? I have been shouted down and laughed at even threatened when stating my opinion that the election was fixed, I don’t expect any apologies but sure deserve them.

Chiefio poses some questions

“Are Western Democratic Republics Recoverable?”

May 13, 2022 9:45 am

“…what happens then?”

Same as 2016, same as GA governor race – “it was stolen!”.
They are STILL saying Stacey Abrahams won in GA. Yes, still.

Still saying Trump was “illegitimate”, but Biden was “most secure election in history”.

Still saying 6/1/21 was an “insurrection” and requires prosecution even where many are having their cases dismissed by showing evidence they were “invited” in by police.
Still ignoring Dem supporters “pounding on the door” of the senate in 2017.

Still ignoring clear breach of US federal (and in VA, state) law regarding demonstrations outside a justice’s house with the intent of changing their decision – blatantly illegal, and much more significant than a 4 hour delay in senate procedure on 1/6/21. If the judiciary is not allowed independence, justice cannot be even seen to be done.

But it’s all OK if it is from the left, and always a “threat to democracy” if the right does it.
This won’t change unless and until the Dems are absolutely smashed at an election and completely re-brand themselves back to moderate liberal instead of radical left wokeratti. Given the polling, this may happen in November – always assuming there’s no war, no virus etc etc that allows for the rampant cheating we saw in 2020.
Yes, rampant.
No, it wasn’t “widespread” – it was focused where it would make a difference!

They say Trump is a divisive figure and unsuited to the Presidency.

Good. Let him divide and rule.

Smashing the left in the election is only the start. The woke are actually the velvet glove, albeit lawless and violent. The iron fist is Marxism, state corporatism (Fascism) and Communism.

America will need a committee to root out unAmerican activities. The left have to be driven out of all levels of government, schools, universities, the media and Hollywood. Big Tech must be broken up using anti trust laws. State broadcasters should be dismantled. Chinese, Russian and Arab spies must be deported. And all illegal immigrants.

We should remember that this worked in the 1950s, setting the scene for winning the Cold War.

May 13, 2022 12:12 pm

” The left have to be driven out of all levels of government, schools, universities, the media and Hollywood.”

The left AND the establishment right as well – RINO’s like Mitch McConnel and co.

That will only happen if Trump keeps up his endorsements, and such RINO’s are “primary”ed out of office and replaced with MAGA supporters – no, not Trump supporters, people who support America First.

Look what just happened – the Senate near unanimously supported sending $US40 Billion (Biden only asked for $US33 Billion!) to Ukraine to protect their border, and meanwhile Border Protection Services and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) doesn’t get this much to protect the US border and enforce deportation of criminals, and illegal immigrant encounters (just who they happen to “find”!) reaches record highs of well more than 100k a month – over 1.2 million a year, bigger than several US cities. Many of whom are being given plane and bus tickets to places well away from the border states, with no way to track them. And at least 40 known terrorists that have disappeared into the US, completely untracked.

The Ukraine grant included “food security” funding, while baby formula has virtually vanished from US shop shelves. Pissing off US mums again – that’ll cost Dems even more, hurting much more than any gain they might get from Roe V Wade crap.

Watched 2000 mules yesterday via a link sent from Us friend. Was also a bit concerned at first with Adam Crichton’s commentary. Interestingly, the doco does not even mention voting machines, yet I still wonder about those too. There is no doubt that the processes of voting in many US states is suspect. I have written to my local representatives asking why the 18000 Australians found to have voted multiple times in our last Federal election have not been prosecuted, and said that I expect in the future that such cheats WILL be prosecuted. I will drop by the local AEC office before the 21st to also verbally express my opinion that fines must be issued. We cannot let the standards slip.
Some people dislike having to have their names marked off the electoral role. I doubt that most of those people would also like someone else to use their vote, which is possible should they not step up to be marked off.

“Interestingly, the doco does not even mention voting machines, yet I still wonder about those too.”

I’ve posted this link before, but if you haven’t seen it, this is worth a look.

Epoch Times video: Public Data Shows 432,000 Trump Votes Removed in Pennsylvania Election: Data Scientists

50 mins. Premiered on 6th Jan 2021. (heh! This could be proof God has a sense of humor)

This is not proof of fraud, but it is proof of errors – fraud may be the ultimate cause, but the data does not show fraud, only errors. The data they examine is the same data used by the Governor to declare the election results. It is publicly available data. As far as I know, no-one has “debunked” this analysis, and it was presented at several state senate inquiries. The people who did the analysis are “big data” people, so they know how to find “problems” in huge data sets. Includes an intro to the people, who they are, what they do professionally, and why they looked at this data.

Some very interesting “coincidences” such as county level votes changing in such a way as to affect the outcome, but not noticeable on the state level, “mistakes” always going in one direction etc etc. If this was deliberate, there are very clever people who are behind it and they know how to hide what they did to all but the most anal-retentive and experienced researchers.

They are not as confident about pulling off the mid-terms as they were the Presidency.

Remember how eerily calm they were when Trump had thousands of people standing in the cold waiting to hear him speak, while Biden could not manage a dozen people sitting in the comfort of their own cars (at Trump-level petrol prices) in a parking lot?

I remember when Hillary was making her run, the gaslighting like cars running ahead to plant signs in towns to make it look like she was popular, for her bus to cruise through without stopping, and then her people going back to collect the signs again for the next town? Ah, happy days.

May 13, 2022 3:26 pm

Tech must be broken up using anti trust laws.

Yep. The establishment of the Silicon Valley social media monopolies was a classic case of cartel behaviour with an added layer of illegality: the monopolies correctly calculated that they could be immunised from anti-trust action by corruptly purchasing the legislature (Congress).

Compulsory disclosure of illegal payments could be easily achieved with the congressional will.

American would be horrified if they knew the full extent of the corruption.

This is free market economics 1o1: monopolies and cartels must be broken up. Allowing monopolies is a recipe for rampant corruption and illegal corporate behaviour.

The crooks who run the social media monopolies are laughing all the way to the bank with their ill-gotten gains which are largely being financed by taxpayers.

Trump had the potential to do a lot of good in breaking down the habits of Washington. He did nothing and now is doing his best to damage the democratic process. He has had ample opportunity in court to prove that even one instance of election fraud occurred. Every case was tossed out of court, often in embarrassing fashion. Trump is best forgotten.

May 14, 2022 11:17 am

Hilarious how scared you people are of the idea of Trump running again.

May 14, 2022 5:48 pm

The Old Yank has it right. Trump did nothing and is a windbag, nothing more. People who live on resentment and division will want more of his rhetoric – but that’s all he ever delivers.

The truth will out?

The documentary has already reached 1 million views and already racked up $10 million in revenue. The figures reportedly make it the most successful political documentary since Obama’s America, also directed by D’Souza and released a decade ago.

“The movie is a success financially for sure, but also it is successful in its political and cultural influence,” said D’Souza. “It’s the most talked about movie out there right now, making headlines in multiple publications, and is trending extremely high on social media.”
