CNN Host Makes Outrageous Claim That Holding Elections Threatens Democracy

Liberal news network CNN aired one of its most outrageous takes recently. As the network battle scandals from hosts like Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon and now another producer CNN is also struggling to remain relevant in a post-Trump world and has seen a massive exodus of viewers over the last year.

Now, the network is claiming that holding state elections can actually be a danger to democracy.

According to The Daily Wire:

Filling in Tuesday night for the recently fired Chris Cuomo on the abruptly renamed “CNN Prime Time,” guest host Michael Smerconish twice warned that Trump voters in his home state have launched a dark conspiracy to overturn elections by having a statewide officeholder elected by the people instead of appointed by the governor.

And despite his concern over Republicans running for the office of secretary of state, which oversees election laws in each respective state, CNN apparently never mentioned the most concerted effort to capture this office: George Soros’ “Secretary of State Project.”

Michael Smerconish brought the subject up during the now-abbreviated handoff with Don Lemon at 10 p.m., after Lemon said he questioned the integrity of people who support election integrity. “I’m not sure if that really matters if they want to believe [in voter fraud] or they actually do believe it,” he said.

“Well, they are taking action on it,” replied Smerconish. He said the fact that a sizable percentage of Republicans’ constituents harbor doubts about the 2020 election “gives them the power to go in a state like Pennsylvania and say, ‘You know that secretary of state position? Let’s make it an elected gig, instead of an appointed job.’”

How much father can CNN fall? It seems the network is destined to go under if it continues down this path.

Pretty funny. I’m sure they meant “farther” but even if they did, “further” would be the correct usage.

Elections are ‘wndow dressing’ to socialists. They love the word ‘democracy’, and mistakenly think it is only a word about one political party. It is about a process that enables all points of view to be heard within the framework of oiur constitution’s clear acceptance that the proximity of the people to the problem makes for local, county, State ande Federal levels of possible actions. Socialists need all power to come fom top down. That is simple, and causes dictatorship. Individuals love our Constitution ands must must fight George Soros for it.

That outfit should be renamed CCNN “Communist Conspiracy Numbskull Network” for starters. It seems that most all of their anchors are getting fired, indicted or escapees from mental institutions. I think closet liberals are crawling back to them from other networks.

CNN no body believes this pundit TV network. They are not worth of the term journalism they forgot what that means. The Confused Network News, apparently lies, disinformation, and political hacks. Glad you are one of the lowest rated networks in the country. A bunch of apparent lliterate orators with no common sense. If you could all pull your heads up out of your anus you might see the light.

The b ullsh*t architects are following the lead of plastic lips Pelosi who started the “bad for democracy” propaganda tactic, mentioning various stellar GOP candidates would be “bad for democracy.” Hah ha ha ha.

CNN was perpetually a “never was” news presenter in my view rather than a “has been” media source. Their choices over the past several decades were losers 100% of the time. Their popularity will eventually be more garbage to swallow for those still under a delusion that they are honest in any way and will be forced to close their doors. Even news outlets have limits to what the public will endure. CNN is in the “passing lane” on the highway to failure.

News as we all know it now will be a thing of the past and all will be held accountable and you can take that to the bank. It all will be told and it all will be let out.
This will be a new beginning . Everything our country stood for. Honor justice and swift action

The “News” needs to lose the protection of free speech. Their truth is propaganda not news! And they should be sued out of existence for their lies in the guise of news!

I think that people like Don Lemon and Michael Smerconish think that they are the smartest people in the room and they know what’s best for all of us. We should just tow the mark and let them tell us how to live and behave and when and where we should do what. Of course there are people like me that would turn into anarchists if they were to actually gain the power to impose their will upon all of us. I think that there are way too many people that want the power over others and dictatorial power at that, and I think that although I am not a prominent person with any power over anyone, I am not likely to allow myself or mine to be dictated to if there is any other way. The problem we have is that there are way too many of those types and they are basically communists with out the power yet to impose their will on the rest of us, but if we don’t start paying attention and voting and communicating to those we elect with respect to freedom and limited government, we will get what we deserve, and I suspect that is exactly what is happening in this country as well as in others. Who was it that said the difference between a socialist and a communist is power and control??? If we don’t educate our youngsters, we will fall into that same trap that so many others have fallen.

The issue of elections, state or federal belongs to the states. We MUST prevent federal control of anything! If a state legislature decides to elect an election commisioner that is their right. We all need to pay attention to local elections for every position, even dogcatcher. For too long people have been complacient and that is how Soros is able to pay Marxists to gain control of prosecuter offices, etc. Election Boards are Very important and we need to make sure that non-Marists are equally represented. Younger people need to get involved. At 76 I can not drive at night whjich is when most committee meetings are held.
Push your state legislatures to stand up for State’s Rights!! The constitution set control up that way and we must uphold the power assigned by the Constitution!!

Isn’t it ironic how those who are the greatest threats to democracy are the same gang who are howling about “threats” to democracy?
