American Consequences - November 2020

Sebastian Gorka, PhD



he 2020 election was a record-breaking election... in so many ways. Never before have so many Americans voted in an election. More than 140 million people went to the polls, mailed in their ballots, or had them taken to the polling centers and collection boxes by friends, relatives, and ballot- harvesters. Never before has a Democratic candidate received as many votes as Joe Biden received. Never before has a Republican candidate – incumbent or otherwise – received so many votes, with President Donald Trump’s 71 million supporters outnumbering even the historic turnout for Barack Obama in 2008. Most impressive of all is the level of voter support President Trump received compared with the mandate that swept him into office in 2016. This year, 10 million more Americans voted for President Trump than turned out to support him four years ago. Presidential elections usually favor the incumbent, but this result is still remarkable given what we have witnessed since the last election in 2016.

Since before he even took the oath of office as commander-in-chief in January 2017, the president has been under relentless attack by the mainstream media. In fact, the Washington Post published a piece just a scant 19 minutes after he was sworn, with the title: “The Campaign to Impeach President Trump Has Begun.” Since then, the president had been under a constant barrage launched by the majority of the mainstream media. Donald Trump had no “honeymoon” as president. In the last four years, he has been repeatedly accused of being a misogynist, an Islamophobe, a White supremacist, and an agent of Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Forty million dollars of taxpayer money was wasted on the Mueller investigation, which found no evidence of conspiracy, even though Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, assured us he had repeatedly seen such proof behind closed doors. As if that were not enough, as COVID-19 was wending its way across the globe from China to infect millions and kill hundreds of thousands, the Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, thought it would be

a good time to impeach the president over a phone call, the transcript of which he publicly released.
