Wayne Allen Root, the popular conservative radio host and former opinion writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, also spent four decades as a Las Vegas oddsmaker and sports gaming expert. He said, “I understand odds and gambling in a way that no other conservative media personality, host or politician in this country could.”
He was glued to his computer screen on election eve and saw something “wrong”:
I can tell you something is very wrong with this presidential election….
Trump entered the night a 2 to 1 underdog. As soon as the polls started to close and the picture became clear, Trump’s odds quickly moved to even money. Then Trump became the slight favorite. Then a moderate favorite. Then a 2-to-1 favorite.
Then 3 to 1. 4 to 1. 5 to 1. 6 to 1. 7 to 1. Finally, Trump moved to 8 to 1 favorite.
He explained that bettors who put real money behind their opinions “have always proven to be deadly accurate. Smart bettors can clearly see what direction a race is taking. Bettors around the world [American sportsbooks — “bookies” — are prohibited from taking political bets] saw what I saw, when they stared at the electoral map: Trump was headed for an electoral [college] landslide.”
But then something happened:
Something wasn’t quite right. Fox News wouldn’t call Florida for Trump — even though he was ahead by a mile. They wouldn’t call Ohio — even though Trump was ahead by a mile. They wouldn’t call Texas — even though Trump was ahead by a mile. I sat there screaming at my television.
More strange calls. Fox News had called Virginia for Biden at the start of the night — with Trump well ahead in Virginia. Trump would remain ahead in Virginia for three long hours after Fox awarded the electoral votes to Biden. Why would they do that? What was the rush? It made no sense.
International bettors had turned election day 2020 into the single biggest betting event in history at the United Kingdom-based Betfair Exchange. Just days before November 3, a spokesman for Betfair said, “We could be on course to see half a billion dollars bet on the outcome.” According to Pete Watt of OddsCheckerUS, that amount “exceeds what was wagered on the last Super Bowl, the Kentucky Derby, the NBA finals, and the Mayweather-MacGregor fight put together.”
Root watched what happened next in amazement:
Bettors witnessed Trump dominating. He clearly won not only those key states of Florida, Ohio and Texas, but Trump also enjoyed large leads in the entire Midwest — Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa. It was all but over. Trump had an electoral landslide. Hence the massive 8 to 1 odds in favor of Trump.
And then it happened. It was the most bizarre call in Election Night history. Fox News called Arizona for Biden.
Why? It wasn’t even close to over. There was no reason on earth to make that call….
It was as if someone had decided in advance to give Arizona to Biden — whether he won it, or not. It was as if the secret code was known to only a few billionaire gamblers: “Fox News awards Arizona to Biden.”
Six magic words. Someone was ready for that call. Someone waited until Trump was a prohibitive 8 to 1 favorite, then knew to bet millions of dollars on Biden at the longest odds of the night. Someone knew the fix was in.
Someone made a fortune.
It was deliberate. It was intentional. The fix was in and Fox was in on the fix:
By awarding both Virginia and Arizona to Biden way too early in the evening and also going super slow awarding states to Trump where he led by a mile, Fox News made sure Biden had the electoral lead all night.
Root called out Fox:
It all started with that bizarre Arizona call by Fox News.
Folks, someone knew. The fix was in. A few key people made millions betting on this election. They knew the exact minute to jump in. They knew exactly when a Trump landslide would turn to a Biden victory, with the help of a fake TV network call and fake ballots.
Root knew then what the rest of the world is beginning to learn:
Trump was robbed. This election was stolen.
