Election Deniers

Bandolero has observed that the Democrats and MSM (Main Stream Media – although these days it’s questionable that it can be said to be main stream) are more and more strenuously shouting about “election deniers” who are a threat to democracy. They go out of their way to identify candidates they can brand as “election deniers”, and proclaim that the election of such Republicans would bring the end of democracy.

Wow. The outcome of an election would mean the end of democracy. Really? Such an assertion is patently irrational and, frankly, ought not to require a response. However, failure to respond before today’s electorate risks being taken as fear of exposure that it may be true. So, what has been the Republican response to this absurd claim? They dance the Tennessee Two-Step. As one of our favorite podcasters says to start his programs, “Oh, my goodness!” Where have the Republicans parked their cajones? And, yes, we are aware that female candidates don’t, literally, have cajones, we use the term metaphorically and apologize to anyone whose feelings may be hurt by our doing so.

What constitutes Republican “election denial” after the 2020 election pales, and pales tremendously, beside the election denial engaged in by Democrats after the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton is on record (video and audio) claiming that she did not, in fact, lose the election but, rather, that it was stolen from her. Schumer and Schiff and their Democrat cohorts engaged in a nearly four year campaign of lies about Trump’s collusion with Putin and Russia. They went so far as to fabricate false claims, and to present perjured documents, to conduct surveillance on Trump’s campaign in their efforts to get the Department of Justice to indict Trump for fabricated crimes. They brought groundless impeachments against him. They unleashed every sort of political assassination they could muster in their efforts to unseat the duly elected president. The waste of legislative time and resources that they devoted to their specious efforts instead of to their elected duties has been swept under the carpet by the MSM, in derogation of its obligation to inquire, investigate, discover and publicize facts and truths in pursuit of what they claim to be the public’s “right to know”.

Election deniers? ¡Díos mío! Give us a break! Anybody who wants to espouse an opinion that an election, or any other event, was contaminated by irregularities has the guaranteed right, by virtue of the First Amendment, to state their opinion, regardless of whether they have evidence to prove it. Everybody else has the right to point out that they have no evidence. But to declare, as a matter of government policy, that those who express such opinions are a threat to democracy, is by far the greater threat to democracy. The demonization by Democrats of “election deniers” is an affront to, and an attack upon, the Constitution and Bill of Rights. That, my amigos, is the real threat to democracy that’s at stake in this election. What Bandolero doesn’t understand is why the Republicans don’t have the cajones to just say so. It’s almost enough to convince a person that what’s needed isn’t just a Republican sweep, but a Clean Sweep. Throw them ALL out. For now, however, the first step is to put Republicans in the majority of the House and Senate. Then, we can work on 2024.

More Memoirs Announced

We are pleased to announce the addition of Chapter 9 of Bandolero’s Memoirs. Needless to say, we are also pleased to announce the retention of Chapters 1 through 8. We’ve received thousands of positive comments and reviews of the memoirs, as well as of the entire website, for that matter. We only wish we could keep up with demand. However, as you know, Bandolero has been pretty busy coming to grips with the new administration, in order to be able to report the truth to his loyal followers, as well as to his enemies, since Bandolero speaks the truth regardless of who he’s talking to; er, rather, to whom he’s talking. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy the latest addition to the Memoirs.

Buckle Up

Bandolero is aghast and distraught over recent events. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in the Capitol are called criminals who engaged in an insurrection. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in Seattle and New York are called protesters who engaged in free speech. Videos of the activities of both are virtually indistinguishable other than for their location. Incredibly, the actions at the Capitol are blamed on President Trump and senators who voted against the certification of the Electoral College votes that made the election of Joe Biden finally official. Painting the senators as seditionists exposes the height of arrogance, imperiousness, pretentiousness, and superciliousness the left has achieved. Video of what President Trump said does not reveal the incitement that’s alleged. We’re witnessing the unmasking of the leftist juggernaut. Having taken the presidency and emasculated the Senate, the left has pulled out all the stops in furtherance of their goal of eradicating conservatism by equating it with sedition, insurrection, and treason. If you disagree with them, then you are a terrorist. If you disagree with them, then you are not exercising your right to free speech, you are inciting insurrection, sedition, and terrorism. If you disagree with them you should be prosecuted as a criminal and imprisoned; or, perhaps, sent to a camp in Alaska for “re-training”.

We listened to President-elect Biden claim that his “over-arching goal” is to unify the country. But, when we listened to the rest of his remarks, it was obvious that he considers “unification” to be the silencing of conservatism. What he meant was, “The country will be unified when the conservatives surrender.” If you oppose the Green New Deal, you’ll be labeled a Nazi, a fascist, an insurrectionist, a terrorist. In fact, go ahead and try to oppose the Green New Deal! You won’t find an effective platform from which to do so, because your words will be deemed to violate “civil norms”, and you will be barred from the platform.

We just heard that the Democrats are referring to what’s coming as “transformative change”. Indeed. They have their sights set on transforming the United States from capitalism to socialism, or perhaps communism. Things are certainly going to get interesting. The initiation of a new war on terror is under way, but the “terror” is the voice of opposition which is the voice of the Constitution. Buckle up and prepare to say “good-bye” to it.
