Attempted Theft of the U.S. Presidency
- ARI board chairman is unconcerned -

Like you, probably, and a zillion other people, I stayed up late November 3rd periodically checking a map of the election returns. I went to bed relieved: Trump/Pence would win the majority of the electoral college. Only to wake up next morning to discover that swing states had flipped and Biden/Kamala had won the majority instead.

So far everyone at the Ayn Rand Institute has been silent about the vote count controversy, tacitly accepting a probable fraud that strikes at the heart of our government’s legitimacy. Everyone? There is one exception, Yaron Brook. No tacit acceptance for him, he is outspoken about it, pooh-poohing the very idea that people wanting Biden president would or could steal the election.

The following is from Mr. Brook’s podcast of 5 November 2020. [1]


[Reads question] “Any chance there has been tampering with elections?”

Obviously the questioner refers to the current presidential and congressional elections. Mr. Brook begins his reply by answering a different question, in his signature strident and self-righteous manner:

“Of course there’s always been tampering with elections.”

He mentions how the Democrat won the Presidency in 1960, then continues to avoid the original question for a while by answering other questions.

“So is there fraud out there? Yes. Is it only Democrats? No. Why would you think that? What is there in the world to suggest that only Democrats would do this?”

Later in the show (we jump ahead to consolidate this point):

“Why are we assuming that powerlusters on the left are better at this than powerlusters on the right and do it more frequently? I see no evidence to suggest that that is true.”

There are two reasons to think Democrats are more prone to engage in vote fraud than Republicans. First, people eager to use government to “redistribute” your property, and who are fanatic about ruining America for you in general, are more likely to use deceit to steal your vote as well your property. The second reason is that Democrats have a history of attempting to steal elections and succeeding. For example the Richard Nixon – John Kennedy presidential race of 1960 and the Coke Stevenson – Lyndon Johnson Senatorial race of 1948. Contrary to Brook’s insinuation that Republicans have cheated as much as Democrats, there are no Republican examples remotely comparable in importance to those two.

“Is there a grand scheme? No, couldn’t get away with it. ... I mean really, if there is fraud it’s likely to be small scale, it’s likely to be here and there, it’s likely to affect both political parties. Is there fraud at a scale that would win this particular election when lawyers are everywhere ... where would there be fraud if there are lawyers looking over everybody’s shoulder?”

Apparently that last is supposed to be a metaphor. In several states the ballot-counting observers (who are probably not lawyers) were observers in name only because they were required to stay so far away it was impossible to observe anything. After Mr. Brook mentions the ensuing lawsuits he finally answers the original question about vote fraud in the 2020 election:

“My guess is – educated guess – there’s gonna be none of it, none of it’s gonna be provable.”

Make that his prejudiced and hopeful guess. After mentioning a cherry-picked example of a false vote fraud allegation:

“The problem is, people just are unbelievably, unthinkingly, gullible, and buy into any story. Particularly if it reinforces their prior beliefs. ... The reason I have been so anti-Trump all these years is because of exactly what’s going on tonight. He is a President who before he ran for president was a conspiracy theorist. ... He was a president who is now using conspiracy theories to try to hold onto power when it looks like ... the democratic process, the process of voting, has voted him out.”

In short, if you think Biden is winning by fraud you are a gullible conspiracy theorist.

Mr. Brook then asks us to remember that Trump thinks he would have done even better in 2016 were it not for vote fraud, and that:


“... if he believed that, why didn’t he send even more lawyers? Why wasn’t he even better prepared? I mean, don’t buy this nonsense. Don’t buy it.”

When Democrats attempt something risky, fighting the clock, they will do it well and thoroughly:


“If Democrats are cheating ... why aren’t they cheating more effectively? Why are they so bad at it? ... If they’re really this good, don’t you think we would have seen a blue wave? Why didn’t the Democrats cheat to the extent of a blue wave?”

Later Mr. Brook repeats the same point when responding to someone’s comment that the DNC is good at vote fraud, look at how John F. Kennedy won in 1960:

“It was back then, yeah ... it doesn’t look like they’re very good right now. They should have had Biden win much easier. They could have had the Senate and could have gained in the House.”

And towards the end of the show he repeats the point yet again:

“If they’re committing fraud they aren’t very good at it.”

I’ll have to remember Mr. Brook’s argument next time I’m up for bank robbery.
Judge:  “Well, Mr. Hunter, what do you have to say for yourself this time?”
Me:     “I’m innocent, your honor. I only had time to – I mean, would I take only $100,000 when there was $1,000,000 in the vault?”

He mocks those concerned about the vote count:


“Democrats were supposed to win in a landslide? And they didn’t! That seems suspect to me.”

Mr. Brook thinks a prospective Biden administration is nothing to panic over:


“It looks like the Republicans will hold the Senate, and if the Republicans hold the Senate then what can Biden do? How bad can it really get? All the things that we were told ... are not gonna happen because the Republicans, the bastions and protectors of freedom, will not let it happen.”

He is not being sarcastic.  The truth is that few Republicans in Congress can be relied upon and the President has extensive powers separate from those of Congress.

After talking about other subjects, Mr. Brook winds up the show on an optimistic note:


“Think about the potential that we have. There are eight billion people on planet earth. Many do not live in even semi-freedom. But more and more of them are living under relative freedom. Think about what that does to progress. Think about billions of minds working on problem solving. Billions of minds entering the global economy ...”

Etc, man as Homo economicus.  Then we should:

“... embrace freedom so that we can fully get all the benefits of that.”

After offering a raft of ridiculous arguments about what strikes at the heart of government, we are to worry about Nigerians, Vietnamese, the whole world, and embrace freedom. That is, the freedom that remains in what will be, if Yaron Brook has his way, a banana republic.
