TIME Mag: “Trump Was Right. There Was A Conspiracy… Well-Funded Cabal, Powerful People Changing Laws, Steering Media & Controlling Information.”
The National Pulse ^ | Feb 5, 2021 | Raheem Kassam

Posted on 02/05/2021 7:39:13 PM PST by Pelham

Time Magazine has published intricate details of what they deem “a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.”

The article even confirms both The National Pulse’s reporting on former Obama lawyer Ian Bassin, as well as Revolver.news’s assertion of the involvement of Norm Eisen in what amounted to a major admission of a globalist set up to leverage the coronavirus, mail-in voting, and corporate interest to oust President Trump from office.

In a 6500-word article, author Molly Ball lays out how it all happened:

The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort… Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding.

Time Magazine is scarcely a right-wing website, and the article goes to lengths to make excuses on behalf of the “shadow” campaign, they claim: “The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all…”

But the piece concedes “much of this activity took place on the left.”

Time alleges campaigners “successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears.”

By the eighth paragraph, Ball quotes Norm Eisen, who in early September 2020 the Revolver.news website described as the “Legal hatchet man and central operative in the “color revolution” against President Trump.”

By the eleventh, they note the efforts of Ian Bassin, who The National Pulse exclusively reported on – also in September.

Ball writes that “participants” like Eisen and Bassin now “want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”

Ball identifies Mike Podhorzer, political director at AFL-CIO, as “the architect” of the conspiracy.

Changing American Elections Forever. “The first task was overhauling America’s balky election infrastructure,” Time states, with particular focus on what Phil Kline and the Amistad Project had brought to the attention of the world with the assistance of The National Pulse in October.

Still trying to sort this one out, since Time is owned by one of the tech (Salesforce) oligarchs. Salesforce is one of the tools of the gun grabbers.

Yep. It’s an “argument against interest”, and as such it presents a powerful case against leftwing hacks and GOPe useful idiots who claim that there was no conspiracy to steal the election.

They have blundered into making our case against this election.

Mike Lindell's "Absolute Proof" was released and the tech giants are playing "Wack-a-Video" with it across all platforms. Found several links to copies of it on MeWe, Rumble, and Bitchute, and downloaded a copy for myself to upload to various places if need be. Also in case my locals don't get a chance to see it...

It is compelling, and made me cry for this nation. We have been attacked. A cyberwar Pearl Harbor, initiated by China and other enemies both foreign and domestic, and it leaves no doubt that we need to fight as the founding fathers envisioned. We have been taken over (so far) without firing a shot...

Time whitewashes a tyrannical conspiracy of intimidation, crony monopoly censorship, unconstitutional acts of government, tyranny and voter fraud a.k.a, The Steal.

“They admit:

An assortment of foundations contributed tens of millions in election-administration funding. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative chipped in $300 million.

The story directly echoes The National Pulse reporting from October 6th, though doesn’t credit the article which stated at the time: “The group recently received $250 million from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and the significant majority of the sum has been funneled into Democratic districts.”

Using George Floyd:

The death of George Floyd was also cynically leveraged for political ends, the article claims:

The racial-justice uprising sparked by George Floyd’s killing in May was not primarily a political movement. The organizers who helped lead it wanted to harness its momentum for the election without allowing it to be co-opted by politicians. Many of those organizers were part of Podhorzer’s network, from the activists in battleground states who partnered with the Democracy Defense Coalition to organizations with leading roles in the Movement for Black Lives.

And the claim is even made that campaigners should be used for their votes and those they could bring with them in their communities, but not to let them anywhere near the levers of power aka politicians.

Big Business:

Then, America’s big corporates stepped in.

While the AFL-CIO and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce pretend to be at each other’s throats, they reality is much of the back and forth is kabuki theater. The article confirms as much:

Neil Bradley, the Chamber’s executive vice president and chief policy officer… wanted to send a broader, more bipartisan message. He reached out to Podhorzer, through an intermediary both men declined to name. Agreeing that their unlikely alliance would be powerful, they began to discuss a joint statement pledging their organizations’ shared commitment to a fair and peaceful election.

The stage was set for the conspiracy to be carried out.

In effect, big business, big activist groups, big unions, and big media would collaborate to keep President Trump away from office and keep reporting on the steal off the airwaves and social media.

And while the article continues to claim the activists were not trying to stop Trump winning but rather guarantee a fair election, one line gives the whole thing away.

Ball reveals an 11pm Zoom call on election night wherein – when President Trump was in the lead – Podhorzer stepped in to calm his colleagues down:

“Podhorzer presented data to show the group that victory was in hand.”

And he told Time something very true: “I don’t think the Trump campaign had a backup plan.”

The article even claims that grassroots conservative activists came close to rumbling the plan, especially in Michigan, where observers were locked out of the counting room and placards placed on windows to stop them seeing inside.

Claiming Credit:

The rationale for the article is simple, and even contained within the piece:

As I was reporting this article in November and December, I heard different claims about who should get the credit for thwarting Trump’s plot.

Liberals argued the role of bottom-up people power shouldn’t be overlooked, particularly the contributions of people of color and local grassroots activists.

Others stressed the heroism of GOP officials like Van Langevelde and Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, who stood up to Trump at considerable cost. The truth is that neither likely could have succeeded without the other.

In other words, now the constituent parts are trying to claim credit, and along they way, they’ve said the quiet part out loud.”

“Changing laws” was unconstitutional, because it was not done by the Legislatures as the Federal and State Constitutions BOTH REQUIRE.

Why not just post the Times article, instead of posting to someone's opinion about it? Time.com is on the excerpt list. I think we can come up with enough criticisms of our own.

Yeah, the umpteenth article about the Time article posted today. Let’s be honest here: everyone knows nothing’s gonna happen to these people. They own the country now. How much do they own it? Enough they call tell the whole world what they did and you know what? You can’t do shit about it. This coup is a blueprint. They will follow the same formula from here on out. No GOP candidate will get within 5 points of the presidency for the lifetime anyone reading this post. There is no point in voting. In fact, we should boycott the vote to undermine its simulated legitimacy. Virtual secession.
