While the election results weigh in the balance, if Joe Biden becomes the 46th president of the United States, we already have a glimpse into what his time in office could look like: a presidency filled with broken campaign promises.
When Chris Wallace asked in the first presidential debate, good ole Scranton Joe promised that he would wait to declare victory until all of the votes were counted, and the results were independently certified. In his own words, “once the winner is declared, after all the, all the ballots are counted, all the votes are counted, that’ll be the end of it.”
Yet, Joe did not hold to that promise. He did not stick to his word. Some would even claim that he lied to the American people.
On November 7th, Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, took to the stage to claim a premature victory. In the opening lines of his speech, Biden stated, “My fellow Americans, the people of this nation have spoken. They have delivered us a clear victory. A convincing victory. A victory for “We the People.”
A clear victory? With Attorney General Barr authorizing the Department of Justice to look into the alleged voter fraud claims, Biden’s preemptive victory is anything but transparent. It is quite murky. Why was there a 138,000 ballot dump in Michigan with 100 % of the votes going to Biden? What is going on with the Dominion Voting Systems software that glitched in both Michigan and Georgia?
A convincing victory? Biden said it was clear. If it was a clear victory, why do we need to be convinced?
A victory for “We the People?” What about the over 70 million people who voted for Donald J. Trump? Is it their victory? Is it a victory for the 70% of Republicans who do not believe the election was free nor fair? These questions, along with many others, have yet to be answered.
While the mainstream media will loudly proclaim the election for Biden, it is not over yet. The Trump administration has lawsuits in multiple states, recounts are just beginning, the Electoral College has yet to vote, and the results have yet to be independently certified. But if you only take away one thing from this article, remember that Joe Biden has already broken a promise to the American people by claiming an early victory. If he can break a promise before even stepping foot in the White House as the next potential president, what other promises would he break throughout his term in office?
