The Big Bang The­ory: The 43 Pecu­liar­ity< /​em> 2012

If you turned on the MSM yes­ter­day the only story that appar­ently exists is the asser­tion by the pres­i­dent that Hillary Clinton’s pop­u­lar vote mar­gin was due to mil­lions of ille­gal aliens voting.

As you might guess the entire MSM is up in arms we’re talk­ing full hys­te­ria mode:

I’m sure these upstand­ing media folk are think­ing (for the upteenth bil­lion time) that they’ve finally got Trump and now they’ll be able to bring him down.

But what they don’t real­ize is that they’ve fallen into his trap once again.

First of all he’s got­ten the MSM to bring up this sub­ject mean­ing that many peo­ple who didn’t enter­tain the pos­si­bil­ity of ille­gal vot­ing will now start enter­tain­ing it.

Sec­ond of all in the same week that the MSM which has a 14% approval rat­ing was caught falsely claim­ing that Trump removed a bust of Mar­tin Luther King from the oval office you have them assert­ing that this claim is isn’t true, or “debunked”. Given the level of trust that the MSM has with the pub­lic that very asser­tion that Trump is lying, made by them at a point where their cred­i­bil­ity and pop­u­lar­ity are dwarfed by Trump will trend to make peo­ple believe it.

But this is all pre­lim­i­nary, the real snare is this.

There is one sure way to def­i­nitely debunk Pres­i­dent Trump’s claim, and that’s to exam­ine the vot­ing in blue enclaves that over­whelm­ingly voted Hillary, areas that for the most part unex­pect­edly don’t have voter ID laws in place, and do some good old fash­ioned inves­tiga­tive reporting.

And this is the trap being laid.

I strongly sus­pect that said enclaves can not stand the scrutiny that such an inves­ti­ga­tion would bring. Thus if any press orga­ni­za­tion decides to launch one, even if osten­si­bly to debunk claims of voter fraud, they are likely to get a lot of push­back in said Demo­c­rat enclaves. Will by their very nature rein­force the idea that the Democ­rats are hid­ing something.

And even worse what if such fraud is found? How will the MSM play it? “Trump was lying about 3,000,000 ille­gal aliens vot­ing, we only found evi­dence of 100,000 to 500,000 nation­wide” Yeah that’s going to bring him down.

If it is sug­gested to the MSM that they should con­sider such an inves­ti­ga­tion they will likely answer: The bur­den of proof is not on us. Yeah THAT’S going to really play well with a pop­u­la­tion that doesn’t trust them.

Of course the ulti­mate trap would be for the pres­i­dent to bluntly say that if states like Cal­i­for­nia wish to ally my fears they can sim­ply pass and enforce voter ID laws to assure the integrity of the vote.

I won­der how the MSM will react to that?

UPDATE: How do define a sucker in three steps

Ana Navarro after Trump’s remarks:

So what does Trump do? He orders an inves­ti­ga­tion!

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump called on Wednes­day for “a major inves­ti­ga­tion” into voter fraud, fol­low­ing through with base­less claims he has made since November’s elec­tion alleg­ing mil­lions of ille­gal votes dur­ing the gen­eral elec­tion with­out cit­ing any evidence.

I will be ask­ing for a major inves­ti­ga­tion into VOTER FRAUD, includ­ing those reg­is­tered to vote in two states, those who are ille­gal and … even, those reg­is­tered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depend­ing on results, we will strengthen up vot­ing pro­ce­dures!” Trump wrote in two con­sec­u­tive tweets.

The Big Bang Theory: The 43 Peculiarity< /em> 2012

If you turned on the MSM yesterday the only story that apparently exists is the assertion by the president that Hillary Clinton’s popular vote margin was due to millions of illegal aliens voting.

As you might guess the entire MSM is up in arms we’re talking full hysteria mode:

I’m sure these upstanding media folk are thinking (for the upteenth billion time) that they’ve finally got Trump and now they’ll be able to bring him down.

But what they don’t realize is that they’ve fallen into his trap once again.

First of all he’s gotten the MSM to bring up this subject meaning that many people who didn’t entertain the possibility of illegal voting will now start entertaining it.

Second of all in the same week that the MSM which has a 14% approval rating was caught falsely claiming that Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King from the oval office you have them asserting that this claim is isn’t true, or “debunked”. Given the level of trust that the MSM has with the public that very assertion that Trump is lying, made by them at a point where their credibility and popularity are dwarfed by Trump will trend to make people believe it.

But this is all preliminary, the real snare is this.

There is one sure way to definitely debunk President Trump’s claim, and that’s to examine the voting in blue enclaves that overwhelmingly voted Hillary, areas that for the most part unexpectedly don’t have voter ID laws in place, and do some good old fashioned investigative reporting.

And this is the trap being laid.

I strongly suspect that said enclaves can not stand the scrutiny that such an investigation would bring. Thus if any press organization decides to launch one, even if ostensibly to debunk claims of voter fraud, they are likely to get a lot of pushback in said Democrat enclaves. Will by their very nature reinforce the idea that the Democrats are hiding something.

And even worse what if such fraud is found? How will the MSM play it? “Trump was lying about 3,000,000 illegal aliens voting, we only found evidence of 100,000 to 500,000 nationwide” Yeah that’s going to bring him down.

If it is suggested to the MSM that they should consider such an investigation they will likely answer: The burden of proof is not on us. Yeah THAT’S going to really play well with a population that doesn’t trust them.

Of course the ultimate trap would be for the president to bluntly say that if states like California wish to ally my fears they can simply pass and enforce voter ID laws to assure the integrity of the vote.

I wonder how the MSM will react to that?

Ana Navarro after Trump’s remarks:

So what does Trump do? He orders an investigation!

President Donald Trump called on Wednesday for “a major investigation” into voter fraud, following through with baseless claims he has made since November’s election alleging millions of illegal votes during the general election without citing any evidence.

“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and … even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Trump wrote in two consecutive tweets.
