In a pair of articles on his Racket News website, “Twitter Files” reporter Matt Taibbi uncovers corrupt, systematic, and longstanding efforts by leading Democrats to stop the election of Donald J. Trump in 2024 or, at a minimum, cripple his presidency before it can get off the ground.
Taibbi, who, it should be noted, was once a darling of the progressive left while working as a columnist for the New York Press and Rolling Stone, has in recent years become one of the left’s top critics as an independent investigative journalist. He and fellow disaffected liberal Michael Shellenberger have broken major stories about the federal government’s involvement in online censorship on issues like pandemic lockdown policies and the 2020 election as part of their “Twitter Files” coverage, and Taibbi has become a leading detractor of the corporate media and the political establishment in both parties.
In his most recent work, a 4,200 word article that should have every American citizen concerned about the future of free and fair elections in the United States, Taibbi writes, “The 2024 presidential race increasingly looks like it will be decided by lawyers, not voters, as Democrats unveil plans for America’s first lawfare election… To ‘protect democracy,’ democracy is already being canceled. We just haven’t admitted the implications of this to ourselves yet.”
As Taibbi outlines, the Democrat establishment is already engaged in a systematic effort to ensure that Biden remains in the White House beyond 2024. One part of this effort is the series of lawsuits in a number of states to remove Trump from the ballot. Another is ensuring that Biden has no serious primary threat – something which has, according to Taibbi’s sources, been accomplished through threatening would-be challengers.
