The MSNBC Crowd-Size “Theory”
January 24, 2021
I investigated the claim the 2020 Presidential Election was “rigged” in favor of Joe Biden for three weeks. I came to the conclusion the election was either rigged, or there was a conspiracy to make you believe it was rigged. I could write a lot more about the 2020 Election but that would be a lot of work. If this article gets a lot of reads I am willing to spend the time.
Two recent events that are consistent with, but not proof, that there was a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the 2020 Election was “rigged.”

Downtown Washington was filled with military and law enforcement, sliced up by fences and vehicle barriers and devoid of protesters and most residents – a sign that massive security presence has succeeded in keeping violent protesters [and anyone else] away from the 2021 inauguration day ceremony after the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
An attack that no one can explain why the Capital was not protected beforehand, since just about everyone knew it was going happen.
The Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol cannot be explained as a security failure, an intelligence failure – or both. Trump was tweeting Dec 19 that it was coming: “Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”
Where were the Metropolitan Police Department, the U.S. Park Police, the U.S. Secret Service or the U.S. Capitol Police?
I came across Fox News’ Sean Hannity raising questions about how Joe Biden could have won the election when not a lot of people showed up at his Georgia rally.
Hannity told viewers in the days after November 3rd that they should not trust the results of the election. In the weeks since he’s continued casting doubt on the results and speaking with Kayleigh McEnany on his show almost every night since the election, even as the Trump team’s claims in court have been rejected time after time. Hannity opened his show questioning how Biden could’ve won the election if he can’t get bigger crowds:
“The most popular politician apparently in the history of mankind, that guy, or so we are told. He held a rally today. One itsy-bitsy little teensy-weensy problem is the rally was in a mostly empty warehouse with a parking lot with a few cars and very few people. Which is beyond humiliating” Anyway, it even makes me doubt this so-called record-breaking vote total.”
I already investigated the Trump Rallies and confirmed the reporting was accurate about the crowd size and enthusiasm.
I decided to investigate the article below to see if it was fake news.
Don’t bother clicking on the link above ” 404 😦 Oops! That page can’t be found. It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for.
Does a hidden hand removing the article about no one showing up at the Biden rally prove the election was rigged?
Answer: No, a hidden hand removing the article about no one showing up at the Biden rally is consistent, not proof, of a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the election was rigged.
I got a hold of Adam Edelman a political reporter at the New York Daily News. Adam covers national politics and contributes to print and online coverage of the New York City mayoral race. He regularly hosts the Daily News’ candidate live chats and blogs about the Sunday morning political talk shows. Adam previously worked as an editor at Dow Jones Newswires and has written for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and USA Today. A Wisconsin native, he now lives in Brooklyn.
Adam co-wrote At Georgia rally, Biden touts Ossoff and Warnock, while slamming GOP candidates. I contacted Adam by phone and he verified that there were only 50 cars.
Let’s say you were behind rigging the election for Biden and realized how bad it would look if on inauguration day NOBODY showed up for the 46th POTUS who got 81 million plus votes. Yes, they could have made the argument he was worried about a super spreader event but notice everyone was wearing a mask today.
Was the Jan 6 attack on the U.S. Capital in Downtown Washington a plan to give the public an excuse why no one showed up for the Presidential inaugural ceremonies, perhaps the most widely known of the numerous ceremonies held at the U.S. Capitol, because the election was rigged?
Answer: No, The Jan 6 attack on the U.S. Capital in Downtown Washington is consistent, not proof, of a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the election was rigged.
Appendix A is a list of curious events that have happened since the 2020 Election that could be explained if there was a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the election was rigged.

I am trying to go back to sleep this morning and Youtube goes to one of the Breaking News reports. There are at least 3 MSNBC Breaking News Videos broadcast on January 23, 2021, but the one below is the only one that is talking about Crowd size right at the beginning if you want to listen to it.
Breaking News Trump 1/23/2021 [FULL 9AM] MSNBC Breaking News Today Jan 23, 2021.youtube.com/watch?v=SEzPRn7bF9o
Trump hatched yet another plot to overturn the election results but more on this later.This week ushered in a time of change and renewal in this country. The inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris that represents the peaceful transition of power in our country that is central to our democracy took place at the same site that where just over two weeks ago there was a violent attack on congress. Unlike in years in the past crowd size at the event was limited because of Covid 19 and Security Concerns .. but Biden was sworn in as the 46th POTUS and sounded a peace and unity.
Is the MSNBC video proof the election was “rigged.”
NO, the MSNBC video is consistent, not proof, of a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the election was rigged.
MSNBC Update 1:59 PM PST
The MSNBC video is … you guess it, unavailable!
I found the broadcast here, .youtube.com/watch?v=0Buhgv8Fibg
I don”t believe in any conspiracy here but I did archive the broadcast.
Is the MSNBC video unavailable proof the election was “rigged” or consistent with a conspiracy to make you believe in a conspiracy that the election was rigged.
Answer: Unlikely but I will keep monitoring to see if the other broadcasts are “unavailable.”
 These agencies and others are now preparing for rioters to descend on the Capitol again.
The Secret Service is taking the lead on Biden’s inauguration security planning. The National Mall will be closed to the general public on Inauguration Day, according to an official familiar with discussions.
There will be no big screens, no toilets and the public will not be able to get down to the Mall where traditionally thousands gather to watch the new president be sworn in, the official said.
The President-elect and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are still expected to take their oaths of office on the West Front of the US Capitol during a significantly scaled-down event. Biden said this week that his team had been receiving briefings in the wake of the violence and that he was “not afraid of taking the oath outside.”
“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, said.
Sidney Katherine Powell is an American attorney and former federal prosecutor, best known for her promotion of conspiracy theories in attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election.
The pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood tweeted that Vice President Mike Pence should be arrested for treason and executed by firing squad. He also blamed Chief Justice John Roberts and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the 2020 US election results.
The hair coloring melting down the sides of his face while he declared long-dead Venezuelan caudillo Hugo Chavez caused President Donald Trump’s election defeat made one thing clear — Rudy Giuliani is no longer “America’s Mayor.” The accolade Giuliani earned for his calm fortitude in leading New York City after the September 11, 2001 attacks has dissolved in a series of increasingly bizarre claims that Democrats, the media, and yes, the late Venezuelan dictator, had robbed Trump of reelection. His press conference Thursday, pushing election conspiracy theories without any evidence, was Giuliani’s latest audacious, fact-shy display on behalf of Trump, who lost the November 3 election to Democrat Joe Biden but refuses to concede defeat.
(CNN)A Republican candidate who subscribes to the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory prevailed Tuesday night in a House primary runoff in Georgia.
Marjorie Taylor Greene defeated fellow Republican John Cowan in the runoff for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, and her victory in the solidly Republican Georgia district means Greene is all but certain to find herself elected to Washington. What started three years ago as a conspiracy theory born on the internet’s dark fringes has moved into the mainstream with candidates like Greene espousing and promoting QAnon theories and phrases as they seek political office on a major party ticket. QAnon’s main theories claim that dozens of politicians and A-list celebrities work in tandem with governments around the globe to engage in child sex abuse. Followers also believe there is a “deep state” effort to thwart President Donald Trump. Another QAnon theory is that Trump will arrest all his wrongdoers like Hillary Clinton and send them to Guantanamo Bay. There is no evidence for these claims. It’s unclear who was behind the posts, or if the ones that followed were posted by the same person — but followers believe “Q” is knowledgeable because of his or her claim to security clearance within the US government.
Besides Greene, a few other candidates on the November ballot have expressed support or sympathize with QAnon, without calling themselves an outright believer.

Scott Pelley: Who does the National Guard answer to?
Ken Cuccinelli: They answer through DOD. They can have–
Scott Pelley: To the president?
Ken Cuccinelli: That’s the chain of command. The whole executive–
Scott Pelley: If he orders them to stand–down–will they stand down?
Ken Cuccinelli: Well, you’re gonna have to ask them, but that’s unimaginable.
Scott Pelley: If the president orders DHS to stand down, will you stand down?
Ken Cuccinelli: We’re gonna complete our jobs. There’s not– there’s not a stand down. We have a statutory mission we’re going to perform under all circumstances. And I think that hypothetical is– not going to happen. It’s unimaginable.
January 11, 2021 Major tech companies showed their might after the attack on the U.S. Capitol by shutting down President Trump’s accounts and trying to do the same with those who incite violence among his supporters. People talk a lot about Big Tech, and certainly the past few days show just how powerful these companies are. First, Twitter and Facebook suspended President Trump’s access to his biggest online megaphones. Then Apple, Google and Amazon cut off Parler, a social media site popular with Trump supporters. And joining us now to unpack all of this is NPR’s tech correspondent Shannon Bond.
January 16, 2021 Dr. Ignatius PiazzaSaturday, Karen,WHAT is REALLY going on in Washington DC?25,000 troops are currently in DC. This is four times more than the number of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq combined! 5,000 more are expected to arrive in the next few days.Barricades and armored checkpoints are everywhere in DC. All of this for the anticipated civil unrest by Trump supporters when Biden is inaugurated? I think not. First, Trump supporters are not violent. This was proven, and now finally accepted by the government and even the Left Wing Media, after video evidence revealed BLM, Antifa, and even an imbedded CNN reporter were caught instigating the breach of the Capitol.
Second, President Trump is still in charge of the country, the military and our military leaders. This massive build up is NOT under Joe Biden’s control or even his request. President Trump is orchestrating this military build-up. WHY? Take a look at this evidence of the build-up and you may get some clues…Look at all these checkpoints and closures on this map…
