The writers and editors at Time Magazine will not be labeled by their colleagues in the mainstream news media as “conspiracy theorists,” but that’s exactly what they became today with a long investigative piece detailing the giant conspiracy to take down President Donald Trump that many of us wrote about throughout the 2020 election campaign.
If you haven't read this, you should.

The piece, titled “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” details a complex and immense conspiracy among operatives from both the Democrat and Republican parties, the mainstream news media, the big tech monopolies and corporate CEOs and trade associations to brainwash the public, smear the President of the United States and rig the state-by-state voting and ballot-counting systems in order to ensure a victory by Joe Biden on November 3. The Time writers, of course, skillfully deploy language designed to make this all seem perfectly normal and something you should all just accept, then shrug your shoulders and move on. Maybe even admire.
It is, in other words, a classic corrupt media white-washing piece designed to inoculate the perpetrators from further scrutiny from the public, the other media outlets or – heaven forbid – law enforcement.
Here are some excerpts from Time’s conspiracy-spinning piece:
There was 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 pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and 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 protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.
The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign [i.e, a conspiracy] 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 an 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 nonpartisan and conservative actors. 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, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.
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. 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 thousands 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 to the board of the Voter Protection Program.
All of the parts I’ve bolded above are over admissions of conspiratorial actions taken to disadvantage Donald Trump. It’s not deniable.
Whether you look at it all as yet another effort to fix an election or believe Time’s characterization as an effort to “save” democracy, what it was was a CONSPIRACY.
And that’s not a theory.
That is all.
