One of the main news stories in the United States last week was the search of Donald Trump’s home in Florida – armed FBI agents were allegedly looking for classified documents that, according to the bureau, were illegally seized from the White House at the end of Trump’s presidential term. But what if the search is just one link in a long chain of events leading straight to the 2024 election?

The 2020 presidential election has left a very mixed aftertaste in American society. Many Republicans, and above all supporters of Donald Trump, are convinced that the Democrats rigged the vote. And now – against the backdrop of record low approval ratings for incumbent President Joe Biden, the “feds” come with a search to a potential Republican candidate.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced at a press conference that he had personally authorized the search of Trump’s home, and that the Justice Department “does not take such a decision lightly.”

It is likely that the FBI was sent to the ex-president’s house looking for evidence that could point to Trump’s involvement in the riots on January 6, 2021, when protesters broke into the Capitol building. Apparently, the Democrats want Garland to accuse Trump of “conspiracy to sedition” in hopes of making him unable to run in 2024.

Censorship spares no one

However, there is reason to believe that the Democrats are also preparing a “Plan B”. Recently, Twitter announced that it will launch its Civic Integrity project in this year’s midterm elections:

“This means that we will take action against misleading statements about the voting process, misleading content designed to intimidate people or discourage them from participating in elections, and misleading statements that could undermine public confidence in the election results.

Translated from corporate language into Russian, this means that during elections, Twitter will censor the posts of its users and remove comments from people who doubt the integrity of the vote. Analogies with 2020 suggest themselves.

It is Trump voters who believe that the 2020 election was marked by violations and outright “stuffing” that, apparently, are precisely the priority target of the new Twitter policy. At the same time, the platform does not hesitate to censor even the materials of major media outlets if they expose the current Democratic Party candidates in a negative light.

In 2020 Twitter blocked the publication of the investigation newspaper The New York Post, concerning Hunter Bidenson of the current president. This was done just a few weeks before the presidential election.

The platform blocked not only the official account of the newspaper, but also the personal accounts of several users who reposted the investigation, and Kayleigh McEnany, who was active at that time, was among them. White House press secretary. Thus, Twitter openly interfered in the election race, hiding from its users an investigation that, if they saw it, would have done Biden a lot of damage and, of course, would have caused some people to vote differently.

Total mobilization

In addition, Democratic-controlled structures continue to work to increase turnout in areas with large numbers of pro-democracy voters under the pretext that voter lists need to be updated.

For this purpose, a system called the Electronic Registration Clearinghouse or ERIC has been developed. It is billed as a handy tool that allows states to easily update their electoral rolls. In fact, this list management system, used in 31 states and the District of Columbia, shares voter registration data with the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Electoral Innovation and Research (CEIR), one of two NGOs that in 2020 transferred $419 million to local election commissions to increase Democratic voter turnout.

The CEIR then develops targeted mailing lists and sends them back to the states so they can be used for voter registration work. As part of their agreement with ERIC, states are not allowed to disclose any data they send to or receive from ERIC, however ERIC is not subject to similar restrictions and can work with Mark Zuckerberg’s CEIR.

There is every reason to believe that the system, which supposedly should regularly update voter lists to exclude the so-called “dead souls”, will in fact be engaged in identifying and registering potential Democratic voters. You could call it “electronic mobilization” ahead of the 2024 elections.

Combined with one-sided censorship policies on major social networks like Twitter and Facebook** (the latter is owned by the aforementioned Mark Zuckerberg, whose Meta* corporation is recognized as an extremist organization in Russia and banned), what is happening looks like the Democratic Party and lobbyists in large corporations have decided ” spread straw” in case their Democratic candidates fail to do it on their own. The raid on Trump’s house, which could potentially lead to the removal of the latter from the next presidential election, appears here as just another element of a larger mosaic.
