There was an organized network of conspirators seeking to manipulate the results of the 2020 election.  And you don’t even have to take my word for it. They were eager to brag about their achievement.  Here’s what they had to say in the rush to claim credit for their 2020 election “victory”:

“There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans.”

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. 

That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.

They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.[1]

Molly Ball, The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,

“Fortifying it”? To an astute observer, that sure sounds like a euphemism for “rigging the election”.  Where have we heard this sort of rationalization by criminals before?

Look no further than the most notorious organized crime figure of all time – Al Capone.

“I’ve been spending the best years of my life as a public benefactor. I’ve given people the light pleasures, shown them a good time. And all I get is abuse. When I sell liquor, they call it bootlegging.”[2]

I’m sure it is merely coincidence, but Al Capone was also famous for quipping that people should “Vote early and vote often”.

The History of Organized Crime Kingpin Al Capone

Al Capone, one of the most notorious gangsters in American history, was ultimately brought to justice through a combination of investigative efforts and legal strategies. While Capone was involved in numerous criminal activities, including bootlegging, gambling, and racketeering, it was tax evasion that ultimately led to his downfall.

In 1931, a special investigation unit called the “Untouchables” was formed to target Capone’s criminal empire. Led by U.S. Treasury Agent Eliot Ness, the team focused on gathering evidence against Capone and his associates. They faced significant challenges, as Capone had powerful political connections and an extensive network of corrupt officials protecting him.

However, the authorities managed to gather enough evidence to charge Capone with income tax evasion. The investigation revealed that Capone had not reported his illegal income and had not paid taxes on it. In 1931, he was indicted on 22 counts of tax evasion.

During his trial, which took place in 1931, the prosecution presented evidence of Capone’s unreported income and lavish lifestyle. Despite his attempts to bribe and intimidate jurors, Capone was found guilty on five counts of tax evasion. In October 1931, he was sentenced to eleven years in federal prison, fined $50,000, and ordered to pay $215,000 in back taxes, plus interest and court costs.

Capone initially served his sentence in a federal penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia, but due to his continued criminal influence, he was transferred to the infamous Alcatraz Island prison in 1934. He remained there until his release in 1939 for good behavior and deteriorating health, as he was suffering from neurosyphilis.

It’s worth noting that while Capone was ultimately convicted for tax evasion, his imprisonment effectively ended his criminal career and marked a significant victory for law enforcement in their efforts to dismantle his criminal empire.

The similarities between Al Capone’s criminal operations and what happened during the 2020 election are uncanny.

Public Perception

During Al Capone’s criminal career, public opinion about him varied. It’s important to note that specific polling data related to Capone’s public perception is limited, as detailed and reliable public opinion polling was not as prevalent during that time. However, historical accounts and anecdotal evidence provide some insights into how Americans perceived Capone.

1. Popularity in Some Communities: Capone was known for his involvement in organized crime and illicit activities, particularly during the Prohibition era. In certain neighborhoods, especially those affected by the economic downturn of the Great Depression, Capone gained popularity and was seen as a Robin Hood-like figure. His charitable acts, such as organizing soup kitchens and providing assistance to struggling families, garnered support from those who viewed him as someone taking care of their community.

2. Fear and Distrust: On the other hand, many Americans feared Capone and his criminal empire. The violence and corruption associated with his activities instilled a sense of fear and unease among the general population. His ruthless methods and the high-profile incidents of violence perpetrated by his organization, such as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, contributed to a negative perception of him as a dangerous and ruthless criminal.

3. Mixed Views on Prohibition: Public opinion on Prohibition, the ban on alcohol that fueled Capone’s bootlegging empire, was divided. While some supported the temperance movement and believed in the benefits of a dry society, others saw Prohibition as a futile and misguided endeavor. Capone’s activities and the rise of organized crime during this period highlighted the shortcomings and unintended consequences of Prohibition, leading to increased public skepticism towards the policy.

4. Frustration with Corruption: Capone’s ability to corrupt officials and law enforcement highlighted the widespread problem of corruption during that era. This fueled public frustration and a sense of disillusionment with the justice system and the perceived lack of government control over organized crime.

Overall, public opinion regarding Al Capone varied widely, with some seeing him as a benevolent figure and others as a dangerous criminal. It’s important to remember that Capone’s influence and perception were deeply intertwined with the specific communities and environments in which he operated.

Prosecution Protection

Al Capone gained the cooperation of elected officials and law enforcement through a combination of bribery, intimidation, and corrupt networks. Here are some of the methods he employed:

1. Bribery: Capone used his vast wealth to bribe politicians, law enforcement officials, and other influential individuals. He would offer money, gifts, or other favors to secure their loyalty and ensure their cooperation in turning a blind eye to his criminal activities or actively assisting him.

2. Political Connections: Capone cultivated relationships with politicians at various levels of government. By providing financial support or campaign contributions, he gained favor and influence over these officials. This allowed him to exert control over law enforcement agencies and hinder investigations into his criminal empire.

3. Threats and Intimidation: Capone’s organization was known for employing violence and intimidation tactics. He used this power to instill fear in elected officials and law enforcement personnel who might pose a threat or attempt to bring him to justice. By making examples of those who crossed him, he sent a strong message to others in positions of power.

4. Corruption Networks: Capone built an extensive network of corrupt officials and law enforcement personnel who were directly or indirectly on his payroll. These individuals would provide him with inside information, tip-offs about impending raids, or tamper with evidence to protect him and his criminal activities.

5. Exploiting Legal Loopholes: Capone and his lawyers skillfully exploited legal loopholes to their advantage. They would exploit procedural flaws, rely on witnesses being intimidated or bribed, or engage in strategic legal maneuvering to delay or dismiss cases against him. This allowed him to prolong his freedom and continue his operations.

The extent of his influence reached high levels of government and law enforcement agencies, which contributed to the challenges faced by those seeking to bring him to justice.

Media Manipulation

Al Capone was known for his adept manipulation of the media to shape his public image and minimize the coverage of his criminal activities. He used various tactics to control the narrative surrounding him and his organization:

1. Charitable Acts: Capone strategically engaged in charitable acts, such as organizing soup kitchens during the Great Depression, which garnered positive media attention. These gestures helped portray him as a benevolent figure and created a contrasting image to his criminal activities.

2. Public Relations: Capone employed public relations tactics to present himself as a respectable businessman. He cultivated relationships with journalists and reporters, providing them with exclusive access and favors in exchange for positive coverage or to downplay negative stories about him.

3. Intimidation and Violence: Capone relied on intimidation and violence to control the media. Journalists who dared to report negatively about him or his organization risked physical harm or threats. This created a climate of fear that discouraged critical coverage.

4. Bribery and Corruption: Capone used his vast wealth to bribe and corrupt law enforcement officials, politicians, and even journalists. By having influential figures on his payroll, he ensured that news stories that could potentially harm him were suppressed or distorted.

5. Controlling Information Flow: Capone established a network of informants and spies within the media industry to keep tabs on journalists and rival gang members. This allowed him to anticipate negative stories and take preemptive action to counter them or prevent their publication.

6. Spin and Disinformation: Capone’s associates and media contacts would spin stories or disseminate false information to confuse law enforcement or mislead the public. This tactic aimed to create doubt and make it difficult for authorities to build a solid case against him.

Overall, Capone’s use of the media was a key component of his strategy to maintain his criminal empire. By carefully managing his public image and suppressing negative coverage, he attempted to create an aura of legitimacy and deflect attention from his illegal activities.

Parallels Between Al Capone and Today’s Election Fraud Syndicate

The organized crime tactics made famous by Al Capone live on today under the guise of “fortifying our elections”.

Public Perception

Let’s look first at the public perception of our elections. While we don’t have any historical polls to support this assertion, it is not much of a stretch to assert that majority of Americans knew that the man who orchestrated the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Al Capone, was a criminal. Despite this public knowledge, perception was a mix of support, fear, and frustration with the apparent lack of law enforcement efforts.

The majority of Americans (62%) now understand that fraud likely impacted the results of the 2020 election. Much as with Al Capone, however, polling suggests that there is a mix of support for the results and frustration at the lack of effectiveness of law enforcement.

Prosecution Protection

Al Capone used intimidation and graft to gain “the cooperation” of elected officials and law enforcement in order to insulate himself from criminal prosecution.  In the wake of the 2020 election, there is evidence of “vertical grift” schemes in play featuring judges, election officials, and law enforcement.

There is also evidence of an orchestrated campaign to prevent any attempts to overturn any fraudulent election results.

Consequently, election oversight rights are being denied under threat of violence;  law enforcement is being used to silence citizens attempting to enforce election law; election integrity lawyers are dealing with sanctions and disbarment; and the livelihoods of election integrity leaders are being targeted.

Media Manipulation

Al Capone used the media to push disinformation and cover up his crimes.

During the 2020 election cycle, the media was weaponized to ensure that the syndicate candidate prevailed. The official narrative of those complicit with the subversion of the 2020 election is that it was “the most secure election in American history”. The truth cannot be silenced forever, however. Despite the best efforts of the syndicate to manipulate the information shared by the media with the American public, the truth about their 2020 election interference is finally beginning to appear in the public square.

Here are just a few of the many examples of media disinformation that have been exposed.

On October 3, 2022, Stuart Thompson wrote a story for the New York Times asserting that Konnech was a victim of “unfounded voter fraud claims”. On October 4, 2022, the same Stuart Thompson penned an article that revealed that the voter fraud claims were indeed well-founded.

On October 19, 2020, Politico writer Natasha Bertrand wrote an article attempting to “debunk” the damning contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop citing a letter from members of the intel community sympathetic to Biden only weeks before election day.

On November 24th, 2020, it was revealed that the impact of this disinformation campaign regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop was sufficient to change the results of the presidential election.

On April 21, 2023, the New York Post proved conclusively that the Hunter Biden laptop letter by sympathetic intel officers was the real disinformation campaign. In fact the FBI knew the laptop information was legitimate as far back as 2019.

The media manipulation in the 2020 election also extended to a tool that Al Capone and his gang would have loved to had access to – social media. This too is being exposed.

Our system of government is designed to ensure that our voters are informed voters before they cast their vote. Our first amendment secures the freedom of the press for this reason. When the criminal syndicate controls the media, however, this freedom results in disinformed voters.


Despite his best efforts, Al Capone was eventually put behind bars. How did this happen? It was not the FBI that put him behind bars. Capone had all of the traditional law enforcement avenues of prosecution covered with “friendlies”. So, rather than attempt to prosecute him for crimes such as bootlegging, robbery or murder, Capone was prosecuted instead for tax evasion.

It took a team of dedicated Americans who thought “outside of the box” to do so. A team of special agents led by a U.S. Treasury Agent Elliot Ness finally brought Capone to justice.

It now looks like the Biden crime family will be brought to justice by another set of U.S. Treasury agents – Gary Shepley and another unnamed IRS criminal investigator. There truly is “nothing new under the sun.”
