Was the last
election stolen? And if so, who did the stealing... and why? The answer
lies in The Armageddon File - the latest book by national bestselling
author, master thriller writer Stephen Coonts.
blockbuster bestsellers include The Flight of the Intruder and Liberty’s
Last Stand. Now, at the top of his game in The Armageddon File,
a story ripped from the nation’s headlines, Stephen takes a fresh look at the American
presidential election system.
CIA Director Jake Grafton and CIA Agent Tommy Carmellini race to
discover who might have attempted - or succeeded - to steal the last
presidential election. A string of dead bodies, rigged voting machines, and
a conspiracy that seems to lead in divergent directions - from the
uppermost reaches of the FBI to foreign powers, from high finance to
organized crime - are only part of this gripping story of cross and
double-cross that leads to a shattering climax.
Life imitates art
and Coonts knows how to tell a story all about the real Electoral
system and its profound effects; he knows that voter fraud is alive and
well in America; and that courthouse politics has always been played for blood and money
in America and political machines ruled some states for generations. In the
old days politicians stayed in power by buying votes with whiskey, money,
jobs, and illegal access to public assistance. Political machines stuffed
ballot boxes in the big cities.
In America today,
the cultural and political divide can generally be defined as a split
between rural and urban America. In 2016 the press reported that in
thirty-seven percent of the precincts in Detroit there were more ballots
cast than there were registered voters. Ballot box stuffing, allowing
illegal aliens to vote, and the failure to require a photo ID before
allowing someone to vote no doubt all played a part. Still, despite the
efforts of the Detroit Democrats, and to their horror, Michigan went for
the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. What if the efforts of the Detroit
Democrats had given the state to Hillary Clinton by one vote?
Coonts says the
American election system is a patchwork antique that desperately needs an
overhaul, which will probably have to come from the federal level.
Requiring photo IDs to register and to vote is a cheap and easy fix that
would do much to cure some of the system’s ills. However, politicians who
think they benefit from crooked elections have resisted this change with
all their might in legislative bodies and federal courts, waving the bloody
flag of racial discrimination. [more...]
