Former DNI Dan Coats just came up with an awesome suggestion which would allow America’s bipartisan leaders to insure this year’s election is a legitimate one. With everything that has happened in 2020, from Covid-19 lockdowns to Black Lives Matter anarchists burning and looting liberal cities, Americans from one end of the political spectrum to the other are worried that this year’s election results can’t be trusted. Sinister theories of both election and voter fraud conspiracies are running rampant through social media.
A way to insure the election is legitimate
Conservative Americans are terrified that Joe Biden won’t accept the fact that he lost the election. He’s allegedly planning to throw the nation into a civil war, by contesting the results. His Burn Down America For Biden campaign is looking a lot like a smokescreen to cover an operation to inject all the ballots they need through the mail. Even mainstream media outlets acknowledge that it isn’t likely that a clear winner will be declared on election night. Instead, Mark Zuckerberg – and other high profile liberals with deep connections to the Deep State – are trying to convince the public that waiting weeks or months to learn the outcome of the election is “normal.” There is nothing at all normal about that scenario. Nobody alive can remember it ever happening before. There is a way to make sure that the election results are legitimate, no matter how long it takes to count the votes.
Dan Coats voiced what’s on the mind of every adult American as the election rapidly approaches. How can we know that the results of the election are legitimate or not? He has a well thought out plan to insure that neither side takes unfair advantage. Every American needs to embrace this idea and insist on putting it into effect right away. This is a crucially time sensitive matter.
In a New York Times opinion article, Coats suggests that Congress set up a commission to “oversee the election” and do it fairly. “Our democracy’s enemies, foreign and domestic, want us to concede in advance that our voting systems are faulty or fraudulent,” he writes. “That sinister conspiracies have distorted the political will of the people.” This is America and we don’t stand for that kind of nonsense. The “most urgent task American leaders face is to ensure that the election’s results are accepted as legitimate.”
High-level, bipartisan and nonpartisan commission
In order to ensure fairness and guarantee a legitimate result, Congress should “create a supremely high-level bipartisan and nonpartisan commission to oversee the election.” The person who once held the same job as John Ratcliffe and Richard Grenell, Director of National Intelligence, insists that his proposed oversight committee “would not circumvent existing electoral reporting systems or those that tabulate, evaluate or certify the results.” It would be like the Underwriters Laboratories of election oversight. They’re the ones who test household products for safety.
Instead, “it would monitor those mechanisms and confirm for the public that the laws and regulations governing them have been scrupulously and expeditiously followed.” If they weren’t followed, then the violations exposed can be addressed, “without political prejudice and without regard to political interests of either party.” In other words, a certified legitimate result. His commission “would be responsible for monitoring those forces that seek to harm our electoral system through interference, fraud, disinformation or other distortions,” things like heavy handed social media censorship and biased “fact checkers.”
To ensure that everything stays legitimate, any and all illegal activity would be “referred to appropriate law enforcement agencies and national security entities.” Both Democrats and Republicans should be well represented but there should be other non-partisan observers too. People like “congressional leaders, current and former governors, ‘elder statespersons,’ former national security leaders,” and others, including former Supreme Court justices and leaders in the private sector.” Instead of Deep State deception, “They would accept as a personal moral responsibility to put the integrity and fairness of the election process above everything else, making public reassurance their goal.”
