WASHINGTON D.C., November 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — In a recent interview with CBS, former president Barack Obama heavily criticized President Trump, comparing him to a child for not conceding the election and calling for a collaboration between the media and Big Tech to “inform the public better.”
Speaking to CBS program 60 Minutes, Obama answered questions concerning the election, voter fraud, and George Floyd in an interview that contained many thinly veiled attacks upon President Trump and his current contesting of the pre-emptively called election.
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
'Trump: ‘Our election system is now under assault and siege’ and as president I must defend it'
'Tens of thousands 2020 election votes illegally scanned in Detroit, says Dominion IT contractor'
'Trump campaign files lawsuit demanding ‘a new statewide election for president’ in Georgia'
'Experts flag over 500k ballots in PA with new evidence of major 2020 election voter fraud'
''Smoking gun'? Pennsylvania vote fraud hearing gets gasps from audience'
'FBI and Justice Department have dragged their feet investigating 2020 vote fraud'
''CNN top brass in leaked tape: We won't give Trump 'too much of a platform on his not conceding'
'Twitter censored Trump 63 times over Thanksgiving holiday, Biden untouched'
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

Scott Pelley, who conducted the interview, asked Obama what his advice would be for Trump. Obama answered: “When your time is up, then it is your job to put the country first and think beyond your own ego, and your own interests, and your own disappointments.”
Continuing, Obama referred to Trump: “I think it was time for him to concede, probably, the day after the election or at the latest, two days after the election. When you look at the numbers objectively, Joe Biden will have won handily. There is no scenario in which any of those states would turn the other way, and certainly not enough to reverse the outcome of the election.”
Meanwhile, evidence is emerging suggesting that voter fraud has in fact occurred in a widespread manner, particularly in crucial swing states.
The former president then suggested that Trump’s refusal to concede the election was actually a threat to national security: “our adversaries have seen us weakened, not just as a consequence of this election, but over the last several years.”
Obama also attacked Trump’s presidency over the last four years, claiming that Trump had “disregarded a whole host of basic institutional norms” and accusing him of promoting the view that “not only do we not have to tell the truth, but the truth doesn’t even matter.”
“I think that there has been this sense over the last several years that literally anything goes and is justified in order to get power,” claimed Obama.
The allegation led to Obama dealing with the subject of voter fraud, which Pelley prefaced with the description “false claims of widespread election fraud.”
Obama suggested that Trump “doesn’t like to lose and–never admits loss,” and that any Republicans supporting the President after the election were simply “humoring him in this fashion.”
Trump’s contesting the media-called election results is even “delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally,” according to Obama.
Obama went farther and compared Trump to a disobedient child: “We would never accept that out of our own kids behaving that way if they lost, right? I mean, if my daughters, in any kinda competition, pouted and — and then accused the other side of cheating when they lost, when there was no evidence of it, we’d scold ’em.”
The former president also made derogatory inferences toward Trump, referring to “strongmen and dictators.” Obama said: “There are strongmen and dictators around the world who think that ‘I can do anything to stay in power. I can kill people. I can throw them in jail. I can run phony elections. I can suppress journalists.’ But that’s not who we’re supposed to be.”
While Obama inferred that Trump was holding a “phony election,” evidence has pointed to voter fraud being committed in favor of the Democrats, with Democrats advocating for policies that would assist their election goals.
Commenting on the role of the media in the election, Obama suggested that media need to play a role in a new manner of informing citizens and insisted that “democracy doesn’t work” unless citizens are informed.
A collusion of “media and with the tech companies” is necessary, according to Obama, “to inform the public better about the issues and to — bolster the standards that ensure we can separate truth from fiction.”
Obama blamed traditional media and social media for dividing the nation: “The voters are divided[.] … The media landscape has changed. And as a consequence, voters’ perceptions have changed.”
Obama mentioned political partisanship and then grouped Trump and social media together as being responsible for the political situation, although did not hold them wholly responsible: “I am somebody who does not blame the current partisanship solely on Donald Trump or solely on social media.”
Pelley also noted that in criticizing Trump in this manner, Obama is doing something new. Regarding his previous silence, the interviewer stated that “[m]any Americans, Mr. President, believe you were too cautious, too tempered.”
Obama responded, “I think that’s a legitimate and understandable criticism.”
