Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state of the US was very disrespectful to president Granger by calling for him to “step aside”. This is the same person who refused to accept the results of the safest and fairest election in the history of the USA. The following is an excerpt from a CNN news report.
“Pompeo refuses to acknowledge Biden has won the election, sparking furor and ‘disgust’ among diplomats.”
“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo refused to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory as President-elect, saying at the State Department Tuesday that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” igniting a furor and roiling diplomats.” This delusional person is the one who interfered with Guyana’s election and threatened the GECOM officers with visa revocation. I am still trying to find out what article of Guyana’s constitution gave him the power to decide who wins an election in Guyana. He cannot get the election results in his government correctly, but he is the “god” of democracy. This is however a false God. He does not know right from wrong. The article further stated “Pompeo sidestepped when asked whether he believed there was massive voter fraud. He said, “I’m getting calls from all across the world. These people are watching our election. They understand that we have a legal process.” He talks about the legal process in his country but insisted that GECOM ignore the legal process in Guyana. Now, is it that their legal process is “more perfect” than Guyana’s? I would say no. Guyana constitution never devalued any “race”. Guyana does not have election laws that allow it to prevent citizens from being registered. Guyana has no “Jim Crow” laws. I know where he got his authority. It is anti-black racism coupled with white privilege. The article also stated, “Referring to the contested 2000 presidential election that was ultimately determined by a Supreme Court decision that handed victory to Republican President George W. Bush, Pompeo also said, “They understand that this takes time, right, took us 37 plus days in an election back in 2000, conducted successful transition then.”

Why does their election take time and Guyana’s election was rushed to declare a winner before all the legal avenues were exhausted? Why was there audit after audit in the USA and not one audit in Guyana? It is racism as I have said. I do not create stories. Trump is a racist. Ask the NAACP. Ask the central park five. After these non-white youths were exonerated, Trump took out a full-page ad asking for the death penalty. There is also the mother of all racist acts. The question of the place of birth of the first African American president. He was saying that African Americans are not Americans. He is living in the pre- reconstruction days when Africans were “never to become citizens”. Just look for Dred Scott case where judge Taney said that Africans could “never be citizens of the USA”. The following shows the contempt that Trump and his minions have for Africans. This includes some self-hating Africans from the Caribbean.
“December 21, 2020 – The NAACP sued President Trump, his presidential campaign, and the Republican National Committee (RNC) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for systematically trying to disenfranchise Black voters in states across the country. The lawsuit alleges that President Trump, the Trump campaign, and the RNC have engaged in a coordinated conspiracy to disenfranchise Black voters by disrupting vote-counting efforts, lodging groundless challenges during recounts, and attempting to block certification of election results through intimidation and coercion of election officials and volunteers. These steps to delegitimize our democracy were targeted in cities across the country with high numbers of Black voters. These actions are a clear violation of the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act.” (NAACP, Dec 20, 2020).
The Washington post also said “President Trump is trying to cling to power by disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of Black voters. His desperate legal maneuvering is straight out of the old racist Jim Crow playbook — and the vast majority of elected Republicans, to their eternal shame, are going along with him — whether actively or passively.
In Wisconsin, Trump’s campaign has paid for recounts in just two counties, one of which is Milwaukee County. In Michigan, Trump personally called two Republican officials who now want to decertify the vote in Wayne County, which includes Detroit. In Pennsylvania, Trump’s legal team has challenged vote-counting procedures and made unsupported allegations of fraud in two cities: Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. In Georgia, the Trump team filed a lawsuit targeting absentee ballots in Savannah, and another suit took aim at the state’s ballot-curing process.
The pattern is obvious and appalling: Trump and the Republicans are trying to invalidate votes in cities with large African American populations — cities that happen to have voted overwhelmingly for Joe Biden. In effect, Trump is arguing that Black people have no right to vote him out of office.” (Opinion by Eugene Robinson, Columnist (Washington Post, November 19, 2020, at 4:08 p.m. EST)
There is information in the public domain that Trump was considering deploying the military to redo elections in the state he lost. Now, Sarah Lynch and the ABCE ambassadors summoned the police and army in Guyana to tell them how to behave after the elections. I want these same people to tell Trump and the US army the same thing they relayed to Guyana. Does Pompeo agree with that? These people have no idea of what democracy is. Yet, they preached about Guyana. They were very disrespectful to a decent person in Granger along with the Guyana Constitution. I understand the disrespect for the constitution because they are disrespectful to theirs. What I will never understand is the way they portrayed Granger. Granger is not a criminal. Granger is not corrupt. Granger did not sell land below market value and pocketed a kickback. Granger did not make his degrees in his bedroom. Granger did not cheat on his income taxes. These criminals and Mercury Public affairs played a real game on this decent person. Africans keep your eyes open for them. Anywhere that they show up, they must be shown the door. The following is an excerpt from The Atlantic. “That’s a fine statement, in line with the long-standing traditions of the U.S. military. It’s alarming, though, that anybody thought it necessary at all. The next day, multiple media sources reported that President Donald Trump has been scheming about a possible coup in the Oval Office with his innermost team of advisers: Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Rudy Giuliani.

These are the same people who saved “democracy” in Guyana. Only the gullible and the supporters of the PPP would believe that. There was also a PPP supporter Mangru who wrote thanking Trump and the republicans for saving democracy in Guyana. That is absurd.
In the latest news, “President Donald Trump begged Georgia’s secretary of state to overturn the election results in an astounding hourlong phone call obtained Sunday by NBC News in which the president offered a smorgasbord of false claims about voter fraud and repeatedly berated state officials.
“So look,” Trump told Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”(an. 3, 2021, 2:18 PM EST / Updated Jan. 3, 2021, 6:43 PM EST By Allan Smith, Julia Jester, and Priscilla Thompson https://www.nbcnews.com/ ).
I wonder if Sarah Lynch and Mia Mottley have a recording of Granger begging GECOM to change votes. I wonder if they also have information of Granger (a retired soldier) trying to get the army to help him hold on to power. They do not. Yet they decided to denigrate him with orders from Trump, the most despicable person to ever hold the title of President of the USA. Shame on all of you.
