In a Sept. 11 interview with Jerry Baker on Fox Business, J. Christian Adams, formerly an attorney with the Voting Section at the U.S. Department of Justice and currently president and chief counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation ( and U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Commissioner, recently noted that in the 2016 election, 41,600,000 ballots were mailed, of which 568,412 were reported as undeliverable, 318,716 were rejected and 5,951,992 were “unknown.”

Adams put this in further perspective: “We know that vote-by-mail disenfranchises voters. The post office only has a success rate goal of 96% on-time delivery. That’s 4% failure. It would have been 120 electoral votes in states with a 4% margin in 2016.”

“… The second problem is it cranks in vulnerability into the election … This is not how we are supposed to elect people. We should have transparency in the process. That’s what’s good about voting in person, because you can monitor what’s happening, government officials are on the scene to fix errors … Dead people get mailed ballots, and that’s a problem.”

Adams cited numerous examples of problems in states where vote-by-mail already has been implemented.

These include people voting the ballots of other people, including dead people; corrupted voter rolls like those in Nevada, where they mailed out 1.3 million ballots with 230,000 returned due to bad addresses on the voter rolls and only 300,000 mailed back, 7,000 of which were rejected; people with multiple registrations like one in Pittsburgh registered seven times; and corrupt election officials like those in Maricopa County, Ariz., illegally changing the rules.

When asked to address Democrats’ claims of “voter suppression,” Adams said, “Well, first of all, “voter suppression” is a fake term. It doesn’t exist anywhere in the law. They use it to smear people.”

Adams then cited the fact that in 2014, Liberia successfully conducted an election in the midst of an Ebola epidemic. “Everyone’s going to the grocery store … I don’t accept the idea that people who care about the vote aren’t able to participate … That’s just not how America works.”

As for the likely consequences of widespread vote-by-mail and other 2020 election issues, Adams observed, “The Democrats are highly lawyered up. They outspend the Republicans in lawyering probably twenty to one … I expect there to be a lot of post-election chaos because of the use of mailed ballots, which is another reason not to use them. We should have an election with certainty where ballots are clearly cast in person as much as possible.”

To add further context to Adams’ interview, the Democrats already have a highly developed lawfare operation where they seek to drag every issue that does not go their way through the legal morass in anticipation that Establicrat judges will collaborate.

Considering most lawyers are Democrats, there will be no shortage of legal challenges to Trump’s and other Republicans’ 2020 victories.

As Democrats have already stated, creating election chaos and uncertainty is part of their strategy; this can only be viewed as another front in their war against the institutions and principles of our constitutional republic.

Buttressing the Democrats’ plans to overthrow America’s electoral process is the unwavering support of the Fake News Misleadia, Big Tech censorship, Leftist academia indoctrination, corrupt Establicrat politicians and millions of Americans too uninformed, ignorant or evil to recognize and reject the Democrats’ lies, lies and more lies.

Big Tech is even censoring medical information that does not toe the Communist Chinese/Democrat Party narrative of lies, like interviews with Stanford University School of Medicine professor and the COVID-19 national task force lead advisor Dr. Scott Atlas, as well as numerous other physicians and scientists.

Making matters worse are the tyrannical politicians using COVID-19 — which according to now-exiled Chinese scientist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, was developed by the Communist Chinese in their Wuhan Lab (thanks, in part, to millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars given to them by no less than Dr. Anthony Fauci) — to not only undermine our nation’s economy and individual God-given freedoms, but also as a smokescreen for the largest voter fraud ever enacted outside of despotic regimes.

It is apparent that the rules-for-thee-but-not-for-me Establicrat politicians like Nancy Pelosi either feel secure in their ability to get away with their malfeasance, or are not bright enough to consider the full ramifications of undermining free and fair elections and the peaceful transition of power.

Based on the numerous Antifa supporters who have been arrested for expanding their arson rampage from Democrat-run inner cities to starting forest fires throughout the West, maybe the Democrats really think they are going to lose despite all of their plots and are implementing their burn-it-all-down default.

If the Democrats do manage to steal the upcoming elections, it is not unreasonable to expect them to export their inner city Burn Loot Murder model of corruption and destruction across the nation, no matter the costs.

Those of us who love God, love our families, love our communities, love our nation and love all the rest of God’s creation should recognize the perilous times in which we live, and each do our part to preserve America for ourselves and future generations.

Inform and encourage others to get informed and get involved in fighting the good fight. Stand firm for that which is good and against that which is evil.

Though I am not a great fan of President John F. Kennedy, the admonition in his Jan. 29, 1961, Roosevelt Day Commemoration speech rings true:

“Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”

Let us each get to work for freedom while we still have the freedom to do so!
