Although it now claims it was a simple "data error" and not intentional voter fraud, Michigan, which has been called for Joe Biden, initially reported finding a mysterious trove of 138,339 absentee ballots, everyone one of which, without a single exception, went to Biden. This story reminds me of another, which not only proves the long history of voter fraud in America, but also how voter fraud can lead to long lasting consequences.
In 1948, Lyndon Baines Johnson was elected to the United States Senate. Although he defeated his Republican opponent, Jack Porter, in the general election, he won that year’s runoff election for the Democratic nomination, against Texas Governor Coke Stevenson, by dubious means, as well as by a mere margin of 87 votes.
The tallied ballots that gave Johnson his slim triumph over Stevenson came from a mysterious ballot box discovered in Alice, Texas. This box, discovered after all the other votes had been counted and Stevenson declared the winner, contained 202 ballots, all but two of which were for Johnson. The suspiciously found ballots were not only found in alphabetical order, but were all written in the same handwriting. In addition, many of them were signed by voters who had either moved away or passed away. The presiding election judge in Alice, Texas, who certified the ballots as legitimate, admitted years later on his deathbed that the votes were fraudulent and that the election was stolen.
Upon his election to the United States Senate, and in light of the infamous “Box 13 scandal,” Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) was nicknamed “Landslide Lyndon.” When Johnson successfully ran for reelection 6 years later, in 1954, he was opposed by some powerful Texas nonprofit organizations. In order to exact revenge against them, Johnson proposed an amendment on the Senate Floor that would prohibit all nonprofits from political involvement, under the threat of revoking their tax exemption. The Johnson Amendment, as it is known today, was agreed to and passed into law without discussion, debate, or descent. Since that time, nonprofits, including churches, have been gagged by their tax exemption from endorsing political candidates or from participation in political campaigns.
Most Americans believe that it was our Founding Fathers who muffled churches from speaking out on political matters. However, it was a fraudulently elected United States senator who villainously and vengefully proposed an acrimonious amendment to mute his political nemeses.
As this story proves, fraudulent elections can have dire consequences for decades to come. Today, I can't help but wonder if voter fraud will once again result in the silencing of the church, but this time in a far more significant way. For instance, if Joe Biden is elected president, legitimately or fraudulently, he has promised, within his first 100 days in office, to enact Democrats' Equality Act, which for all practical purposes will outlaw the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America, If he does, "Blowout Biden" will silence the church in a way "Landslide Lyndon" never imagined.
