Hello, this is Thomas Talleyrand and welcome to the PopulistCast.

Hello, folks, here we go episode eight. This is part two. Going over the time article in part one just to refresh your memory went into detail into how the propaganda campaign made it to where people that were feeling like they were doing the right thing might have been tempted to cast a vote or to in excess of what they were legally entitled to. In Time magazine's article by Molly ball. Says and I quote, their work touched every aspect of the election, they got states to change voting systems and laws and help secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time, they successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump's conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction after election day they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. The Untold Story of the election is the 1000s of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy. At its very foundation, says norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats boarded the Voter Protection Program and quote, who is normal? That's a good question. According to revolver news, norm Eisen is the man who implemented, implemented David Brock's blueprint for suing the president into paralysis and his allies in the bankruptcy, who helped mainstream and amplify the Russian hoax who drafted 10 articles of impeachment for the democrats a full month before President Trump ever called the Ukraine president and 2018, who personally served as special counsel litigating the Ukraine impeachment. He created a template for Internet censorship of world leaders and a handbook for mass mobilizing racial justice protesters to overturn democratic election results. There's perhaps no man alive with a more decorated resume for plots against President Trump, according to revolver. So Eisen is a Russia hoax, disinformation guy. He has a long history, being involved in color revolutions. He was the ethics czar under Obama. He was a friend of Obama's from and still is, for all we know, from back in college and in law school. So basically, what we've got is a man named norm eyes and then some other people running a color revolution against a duly elected United States President. And he wrote a book about how to use color revolutions called the democracy playbook preventing and reversing democratic backsliding, nor my son, Andrew Keneally, Susan Koch and somebody else. So how did this guy end up doing that? Being involved in this, I think he works for Perkins coie. And it only gets more fascinating, outrageous and indispensable to understanding the plan to chaos unfolding before our eyes, once again, according to revolver in September, leading up to perhaps be the most chaotic election in our nation's history. Before we can fully appreciate the significance of normal since color revolution manual, the playbook, we must contextualize the importance in relation to its place and the literature. They give a refresher to the reader to let you know what that what these color revolutions have been used for. They were used in the Arab Spring. They were used against the Soviet Union. They were used To end checklist lochia they were used in Hungary, Poland,

Latin America, this has been an ongoing, well-documented way to run a coup against a democratically elected government that the United States doesn't like, quote, a color revolution in this context refers to a specific type of coordinated attack that the United States government has been known to deploy against foreign regimes, particularly in Eastern Europe, deemed to be authoritarian and hostile to American entrust, rather than using direct military intervention to effect regime change, as in Iraq, color revolutions, attacked a foreign regime by contesting its electoral legitimacy, organizing the mass protest, and acts of civil disobedience, and leveraging media contacts to ensure a favorable coverage to their agenda in the western press. What does this sound like? It sounds exactly what Molly ball is explaining in the Time magazine article. Going back to the time article, Molly ball, points out that there were no riots, no violence after the election, and that it was eerie because in her words, they thought that they were going to have all these violent protests from left-wing groups that are dedicated to overthrowing the government, these left-wing groups who are trying to work through terrorism, violence and intimidation, to change our form of government to something closer, they call it. Communism. It's actually if you look up, or read any literature on what fascism is, you know that what they are really talking about is fascism. I'm gonna segue here into something that's going to be brought up in a future podcast, but it's, we're, we're misaligning what fascism is. fascism was always understood to be on the left, a fascist government is a leftist government. One thing that they are different in is that they use oligarchs, and businesses or corporations, large businesses, to carry out some of their goals instead of nationalizing everything, usually, a fascist regime will fold itself into more of a communist or socialist regime. However, the attractive thing about fascism to the elite is they get to keep all their marbles. They don't have to even give up the look of living like the rest of the country. They get to have all of their wealth, all of their luxury. And that's the reason that you see the tech Titans embracing fascism. Now, by their censorship, it's one of the reasons I'm not putting this podcast on YouTube. I'm not gonna build up YouTube's
Thomas Talleyrand 8:24
customer base by adding something to it, and then them yank it all away from me every time I turn around. There's just no reason to hide it. We're gonna use Twitter for promotion, but that's just because Twitter's the easiest thing to do once something coalesces. I'll move to that. You know, whether that's gonna be rumble or locals. I have a locals page, but I don't even promote it yet. I'm just trying to get things going and get to where the podcasts are consistent, and they sound good. This podcast has been a nightmare to get out. I had a microphone go bad during the bad weather here in Texas. We were without power for, you know, dependable power for almost a week. The internet was down, the at&t was down, everybody was down where there was no cell phones, no internet, no, nothing for several days. So here I am going almost two, three weeks without getting a podcast out because this is a kind of involved podcast. So back to Molly ball in her time article. She tries to consistently make it sound like this was some kind of bipartisan effort. It was not a bipartisan effort. However, I'm sure. One thing that we're not going to find out but mitch mcconnell was probably also involved in this. I think Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, those those two guys, they are totalitarian minded people, and they absolutely hate Trump. Trump's an easy guy to hate. If you're someone who thinks that you're in To him, and, you know, you think that you've been denied power that he was granted. So there's a lot of jealousy in the Trump derangement syndrome. But you know, it's been played out and we're going to talk about that for years to come, we're gonna find out things. So going on to her next paragraph where she tries to talk about how this was a bye, bye, partisan.
Thomas Talleyrand 10:31
Operation she talks about there was conspiracy unfolding. Behind the scenes, one that cartel held the protest and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left wing activists and business Titans. The pact was formalized in a terse little notice joint statement by the US Chamber of Commerce. And the AFL CIO published on Election Day, both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain inspired by the summer's massive, sometimes destructive racial justice components in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump's assault on on democracy as a lot to unpack in that paragraph. So what she's saying in that paragraph is that we know that Barack Hussein Obama, as some people like to call him but we know that Barack Obama is on the board of the company that directs the funds, or the charity that directs the funds. But here's the backend financial support, the reporting support, and the processing and payment support, to be lm, their company out of the Bay Area. There was about a 9000 word article written about this. But what we know is that the BLM protests were teed up in November of 2019. So way before George Floyd was ever an issue, they were going to come out against somebody George Floyd kind of tripped him up because everybody was equally appalled by what they saw. have kind of made it a morbid habit to check into police shootings, because there's so much false reporting going on there that it was not that surprising to me in the way that they handled that. The cops at the scene, just to get into it, Miss diagnosed Floyd, with having a sudden distress syndrome bursts episode versus a drug overdose. I think a day known he was having a drug overdose later got an ambulance there a lot faster. And they would have given him possibly some Narcan to offset the effects, in which case they would have saved his life. What they did was exacerbate the side effects of heavy drug usage. And, you know, there wasn't murder. It was, but they could be charged with, you know, manslaughter would possibly stick. Now, she named the Chamber of Commerce in here. The Chamber of Commerce hated Trump. Trump's immigration policies were antithetical to the goals of the Chamber of Commerce, the ginger Chamber of Commerce, wants massive illegal immigration. They also want massive legal immigration, where they can artificially depress the wages of white collar workers by bringing in h1 b visa workers to push down the wages of the white collar workers, because those jobs aren't as plentiful as people think that they are. And when they can bring in h1 b visa workers, they you know, can cut in half sometimes what those people would probably be making versus having to pay a competitive rate wage with a narrow pool of employees. What I think is the more morally reprehensible and even evil
Thomas Talleyrand 14:29
embracing of illegal immigration is one of the things that they really fought Trump on. So here's the reason that they want to illegal immigration. What they want to be able to do is to fill as many jobs as possible with people who don't dare ask for more money so that there are less jobs to go around for inner city use. That is that works multi Fold one, it keeps people depressed and dependent on the government, which helps the democrats that's their, their goal, the Chamber of Commerce is okay with that. And they want to also artificially lower those wages. Because if it's harder for Inner City Youth, especially the poor, doesn't matter the color, just that they're poor, that they had to depend on the government to get by, then the amount of money that you have to pay out to higher quality. Employee ease is less. Now, this also fights inflation. So some amount of illegal immigration is considered to be good. This is what they say that's a benefit to society. Because over all, you pay less money for goods and services than you would if you had a fully hired workforce. And that is absolutely true. However, you would have more money to pay for those goods and services. So it's a it's a good, it's a good thing. And you can lower the tax burden on the middle class, which is getting harder and harder to do because the middle class is having to earn more and more money just to be middle class. So their goals of ganging up with the AFL CIO, the AFL CIO leadership has absolutely zero interest in taking care of their membership, but they do have an interest in growing their membership. So the more people they can get into the country, the more people they can get to vote to, to become members of their union, the better but really, what they want to do is they want to make sure that Democrats stay in power. Democrats are perfectly okay with a large amount of corruption whereas republicans are okay with just a small amount of corruption. So they prefer the amount of corruption on the democrat side that they get to get away with as long as they are, you know, doing what they are told by their betters. It's a insidious situation, it's immoral. And you know, that's what Trump was a threat to.
Thomas Talleyrand 17:25
She goes on to say in the next paragraph, the handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast cross partisan campaign to protect the election, an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote, but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America's institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic. And then autocratically inclined president, though much of this activity took place on the left. It was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines with crucial contributions by non partisan and conservative actors to scenario. The Shadow campaigners, campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous, that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self governance. That has been a hallmark of America since its founding. How somebody can write those words. And thanks, people would even believe them is absolutely insane. So in Molly ball and her co conspirators fantasy world, anything Trump does is suppression, it's non democratic, it is a threat to our societal handshake. However, having more than one vote per person, not a problem. Matter of fact, that's just good governance. That's just fortifying the election letting people vote multiple times. Good. God. Okay. So once again, just wrapping all these this two paragraphs together. And she is talking about how the PLM riots were used to intimidate. And then the, or the George Floyd white riots were used to intimidate. And the behind the scenes pitch was, hey, look, we've got these people to not write because it looks like we can make Biden win or it looks like Biden's going to win. And if you guys come out against Trump and don't give him any support, oh, we'll make sure our people don't tear down your stuff, steal your sneakers and you know, burn up your Walmart's and your targets. What a deal. That's democracy. fortifying the election, violence using violence to get your political means is terrorism. And that's what they did. Period. It's fascism. That's what they did period. Her insane article goes on to then say that Trump and his allies were running their own campaign to spoil the election. The President spent months insisting that mail ballots were a democratic plot. And the election would be rigged. After she just spent 500 words talking about how things were plotted and rigged, I mean, fortified. his henchmen at the state level sought to block their use that, you know what? We're almost 20 minutes into this. This has taken me over two weeks to get out. I'm gonna wrap it up real close real quickly here. The names that you need to be investigating, or Mark Elias, nor Meissen. Look at those articles that I'm going to link down down in the bottom. And just tell me, whether you think that this was a bipartisan campaign, she named one fricking republican Zach WAMP, who is a corrupt politician from way back. He's been disgraced. And he is not somebody to look up for. But he helped coordinate a bipartisan election protection Council. We have election protection, verify signatures on mailing ballots, don't mail out a ballot to somebody who didn't ask for one. And make sure only one person gets to vote once, not twice, not 1000 times. It's just that simple. There are a number of things that Molly ball speaks about in her article. But one thing that really jumps out in my eye, is the fact that the $300 million plus other donations that Zuckerberg gave was used in part two send out 15 million ballot applications. In key states, only 4.6 million of whom returned them. Let's get into this a little bit. This is an exact quote from her
Thomas Talleyrand 22:25
article and she does no analysis of this insanely high return rate on unsolicited mail. So we in the past, I had a mail piece that we would send out, it would give away a free car was worth about $30,000. The next price down would be worth 5000. The next price down price down would be $1,000 to $500. Depending on the client. The booby prize so to speak, or the standard price. Everybody got no matter what just for responding to the mailpiece was $5 cash. They ever susan b anthony dollars, five of them. They used to make one some that were gold that looked like they were gold. They weren't actually gold, they was just dollars, but we would give out five susan b anthony dollars to everybody who walks through the door and highest response rate we would ever get was 15%. And everybody else knows it direct mail business when you're sending out unsolicited mail from anybody to get a response rate above two to 3% you have to have a giveaway. And in that mail piece, we had a giveaway and we had a key attached to the mail piece for the car. So I would really like to see what type of information was put on envelopes or outside of envelopes of this mail piece that got a 30% response just under a 30% response. With no giveaway and without being requested. She describes the drop boxes that were used to break the chain of custody on the mailpieces. She talks about the
Thomas Talleyrand 24:28
over overcome heightened skepticism in some communities that many black voters prefer to exercise their franchise in person or didn't trust the male. National Civil rights groups worked with local organizations to get the word out that this was the best way to ensure one's vote was counted. And Philadelphia for example, advocates distributed voting safety kits containing mass can sanitizer and informational brochures. We had to get the message out that this is safer. liable and you can trust. So in other words, they fortify the election by making it extremely easy for you to vote as many times as you want it to. Now listen to how she says that they fortified the election by increasing mail and balloting, which the Department of State, the UN, and various other national organizations who have looked at voting, including Jimmy Carter's Institute, have always said are the number one way to increase fraud to the point that their countries have outlawed mail and voting completely. At that, her way, their way of dealing with it was not to push back and point out that these Trump was lying, and these are disinformation campaigns. But it was to teach the social media campaigns was to pressure platforms to enforce their rules, both by removing content or accounts that spread disinformation. And by more aggressive policing. In the first place, I'm sorry more aggressively policing it in the first place. in quotes. She says the platform's have policies against certain types of malign behavior, but they haven't been enforcing them. She says, That's because their policies never ever were against the kind of behavior that was being distributed because the district distributes the distributed behavior has been backed up by studies, time and time again, that the more male imbalance you have, the more opportunity you have for fraud. It's just a fact. You know, Twitter can say and this is the reason I'm not on YouTube. Twitter can say what they want to but the fact of the matter is, they knew what they were doing. And that they were pushing to take a harder line. I think that the platform's wanted to take a harder line, they just needed an excuse. So November 2019, Mark Zuckerberg invited nine civil rights leaders to dinner at his homes, where they warned him about the danger in election related falsehoods that were already spreading on check it pushing, urging conversations, brainstorming all of that to get to a place where he ended up with more rigorous rules and enforcement says vanita Gupta, President and CEO, the leader ship conference on civil rights. And now I believe in the Department of Justice. How she got confirmed just shows that how the republicans just do not have know how to play this game. They met with CEO jack Dorsey and others. Of course, jack Dorsey, and those others wanted Biden to win or anybody want Trump to win. So they bought into all of this. They agree with all this, this goes, this is synergy with their thinking process. So they claim it was a struggle. I do not believe that. But we got to the point where they understood the problem wasn't enough, probably not spreading the word. Beyond battling bad information, there was a need to explain a rapidly changing election process. Why was it changing because there were safeguards in place to make sure no one voted more than once they had to tear those safe safeguards down, is the reason that they would use almost a racist language to declare why African Americans can't get IDs. Now, I'm going to talk about the ID thing. Real quickly. This is something that I don't agree with. I do not believe that the United States should allow states to use the driver's license protocol to arrest people on misdemeanors to traffic tickets,
Thomas Talleyrand 28:59
and that type of thing. violent felonies is something else but for possession of marijuana for a drug possession felony, even of any kind, I don't see where that's a as a non violent crime, they need to be arresting you were going down and getting your papers, please. You have to have an ID according to the to most states at least in Texas, you have to have at least an ID. So you can be arrested for not having an ID in Texas. But then you got to go in there. It's almost like a violation of your fourth amendment, something I'd love to get Barnes or somebody to talk about. And I think that we need to make it to where you go get your driver's license. There, they shouldn't be running. Any thing besides a felony warrants and warrant check. They might be willing to tell you, hey, you've got to go get this taken care of. I've got no problem with that. But in as a matter of fact, I think for a lot of people They, they would, they would welcome being told, hey, I've got a problem I didn't know about. But because of our, in my opinion, very racist drug laws for marijuana and coke. Well cocaine's pretty bad drug. But we're marijuana, ecstasy and some other drugs are treated as felonies, instead of treated as treatment opportunities in our, in some courts in some places, and they're also treated as revenue generators for the local municipality, let's just be real overcharging is a problem. And so, you know, it makes a situation where if you are a certain socio economic class, especially in inner city black youth, where you're more likely to get locked up for a drug crime than any other minority, or even as a white person, that's a drug user. I think that the, the point is that we shouldn't be using driver's licenses to lock people up. And so when people get entangled in the legal system, they don't want to go get driver's licenses. And the reason that they don't want to get a driver's license is they don't know if they've been violated on their parole, or some kind of issue. That's really something that should be taken care of. Outside is something that is mandatory. I mean, if the cops really want you, they need to go arrest you. They've got the warrant, go pick you up. not let this be a collection place. Okay, off my rant on driver's licenses. So but we should really have, you should really have to have a driver's license to vote, or an ID of some kind, illegal ID not a voter's ID. Those can be turned around and given away free. Now, she starts talking about what the former GOP Congressman, he worked through nonpartisan reform group issue, one to rally Republicans to effort. These are not Republicans, these were all never trappers lay the bias here is a banishing. Because Trump's not really a Republican, he's more of a populist that's a Republican. And so the warmongering crowd that wants you to go on a cruises with them, Bill crystals and the like, they were on this integrity project. They these are not Republicans, they have shown that they're not Republicans, and they're really actually only interested in their power. So they claimed that they had rabid Trump supporters, but she doesn't mention in any of them. the Voting Rights Act, lab and intro action created a state specific memes and graphics spread by email, text, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok urging that every vote be counted, sometimes more than once. And, you know, she just goes on and on and on. She goes on to describe how they fortify the election in favor of Biden. How they stopped counting votes, have they started counting votes, how they counted votes without observers? How that was all perfectly correct. Since they were all for Biden, this is probably a good place to wrap it up. I think that you should read the whole article. There's quite a bit to it. Basically, the you know, the left four to five the election in such a way that Trump had no chance of winning. And it disenfranchised your vote.
Thomas Talleyrand 33:56
Possibly, we don't know. Because we never got a clean look at the election. We never got to audit the election. So we don't know one. What we do know is that as far as who's in power, it's Joe Biden. It's Kamala Harris. And that's who's gonna be in power. There's no way to impeach them and get rid of them. I mean, we could impeach them but you're not gonna get enough votes to remove anybody from office. There's just no real recourse except to pass election laws which keep this kind of tampering with the election out of the hands of these want to be fascist. And that's what they are, they're fascist. It's their way or the highway by any means necessary. And they're gonna win no matter what. So I'm gonna wrap this up even though this has taken a long time to get Get out and a lot of research, I could go on for hours about this thing, it drives my blood pressure through the roof, that they would be so arrogant to come out and claim and pat themselves on the back for fortifying the election in such a way that it's not even recognizable as fair and free election. The impeachments now over, Trump spoke at sea pack today, I'll have a follow ups on all of that. And we're going to talk about the Salesforce crazy decision to prove that you cannot have inner inner enterprise level data in somebody else's hands something Marc Benioff campaign for over a decade against, because the number one reason to go with Siebel Siebel over salesforce.com was that Siebel would let you have your information right there. It was in your servers, once you bought Siebel, they can never take it away from you. Once they buy Salesforce, they can always kick you off their platform. And with very little notice, I think it's maybe probably 30 days by contract. In which case, you would have 30 days to move your data to another CRM, which no other CRM is set up like salesforce.com, I believe. And I'm going to have to do the research on it that the salesforce.com products that were being used mostly by Veritas and by the RNC, where they're part of, I think, par.as, soon as they acquired, it is a extremely sophisticated direct mail marketing platform, in which case, you can send a tailored message out to any visitor to your website. If they engage with you on Twitter, in a certain way, you could send them a different message than if they engaged with you to Instagram, if they engaged with a message that you sent out about, let's say counting every vote, versus another message you sent out again, about domestic spousal abuse, you could send them back a tailor message in such a way that they would get the thing that is their big sticking point. So if they're anti abortion, or if they're pro life, you can send it out that way. Or if you're a car dealer, if they go onto your website, and they engage with you about buying an accord, you're not sitting there sending them direct mail about the Tacoma that came on sale from your Toyota store next door, you want to know who you're talking to, and you want to engage them. It's really not a business to consumer product anyway. So it's a little bit overkill, but part it's one of the best products out there. salesforce.com is extremely easy to work with. And it the cost the barrier to entry, it is not as high as on some other software's. So when you get kicked out of that and put into having to go with a more tailored system, you have to spend more money for consultants. And it can often take a year to implement any of these platforms or more. So when they kick you off a 30 days notice. They're really doing you a disservice. I'm going to get into that. And we'll talk about President Trump's
Thomas Talleyrand 38:53
speech superpac you haven't got a chance to watch the whole thing, but I've watched most of it. And I think it was pretty interesting. He could have done better, but he did pretty good. And he's definitely going to focus on reforming the Republican Party from a party that the more I think about it is that not exactly racist, but they have been racially blind, and that they never took their message to the African Americans, especially Latinos seem to get it more naturally. But we've got a lot of work to do how we lost the African American vote is just because we're the stupidest party in the world. As always, wear your mask bowed out anybody who tries to tell you, you have to wear your mask. And God bless you. And I'll talk to you next time I publish your podcast hopefully next Thursday.
