The Big Lie or a Stolen Election? The Truth is Likely Somewhere Inbetween

As someone who has always had an interest in conspiracies, combined with healthy skepticism, the last 18 months have presented a whirlwind of questions about what is really going on behind the scenes within not just the highest circles of power in the U.S., but around the entire world.

My own take on most conspiracy theories is that although they are mostly false, there is often a grain of truth to them. For example, did George Bush and Dick Cheney actively carry out the 9/11 attacks as a reason to invade Iraq? No. Nevertheless, there is considerable evidence to suggest that the U.S. government had close political, financial, and even diplomatic ties to Saudi Arabia, which was simultaneously financing the groups that carried it out.

Are the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama involved in massive pedophile rings along with many of the world’s most powerful people? No. However, what has emerged beyond doubt is that Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, and many other members of the global elite had mysteriously close ties to the late financier and sex trafficking mogul Jeffrey Epstein, whose own death remains shrouded in mystery.

Is the coronavirus vaccine an attempt by world governments to inject billions of people with a deadly poison that will help depopulate the earth? The idea is preposterous. Yet there is evidence the vaccine is not necessarily as full proof as some medical authorities want us to believe as governments attempt to steamroll their populations into taking it against their will.

So this brings us to the question of alleged fraud during the 2020 presidential election. Many Trump supporters contend that the election was stolen as a result of mass voter fraud carried out by Biden-supporting candidates and organizations. However, these cases have so far failed to convince the courts, including the conservative controlled Supreme Court, of any significant corruption or wrongdoing.

Meanwhile, the Democrats, the mainstream media, and even some anti-Trump Republicans have coined the phrase the “Big Lie” to describe concerns about election integrity. Organizations such as CNN, The New York Times, and of course the Democratic Party itself have no interest in getting to the bottom of the matter because it would undermine their own interests.

Last week, the results of the Arizona audit came out, confirming that Joe Biden was the winner in Maricopa County. However, the results also pointed to numerous irregularities concerning 49,000 ballots, a number that is over four times Biden’s margin of victory. Similar claims have been made in other major swing states including Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, although none have had any significant legal impact or ramifications.

With the two sides living in two different realities, it can sometimes be hard for mainstream conservatives to find the middle ground in the post-election debate. What should the average Trump supporter, who remains rightly suspicious of both the liberal media and of fringe movements such as QAnon, make of all of this?

The answer is really quite simple. The truth, as in most of these cases, is probably somewhere in between. Did Democrats carry out a large-scale fraud in the 2020 election coordinated across multiple states that successfully tipped the outcome in Joe Biden’s favor? The jury remains well and truly out.

Yet is it possible that various rogue actors committed electoral crimes that impacted the results of the election? Absolutely. The liberal establishment has already admitted, via a bombshell report by TIME magazine, that there was an institutional conspiracy to remove Trump from office.

The notion that electoral crimes were part of this process is an obvious conclusion to come to and one for which Republicans have presented ample evidence. The strange way in which the 2020 election was held, with a focus on mail-in voting and counts lasting weeks rather than hours, only adds fuel to that fire.

It is in the interest of every American, not just Trump supporters, to leave no stone unturned in investigating those allegations. A poll from June found that a whopping 61 percent of Americans do not believe Joe Biden’s victory was “fair and square.” The country is currently in a situation where, rightly or wrongly, millions of people feel their vote no longer matters. That is a very dangerous situation.

As the saying goes, truth is the daughter of time. The truth behind what really happened on November 3rd, 2020, will eventually come out so long as people do not give up searching for it. By the looks of it, they have no intention of doing so.
