Yuma County Sheriff’s Office posted a press release detailing the incident. The incident happened on Wednesday, October 20th at approximately 4:30 a.m. Deputies were called to an armed robbery report at the Chevron located at 10747 E. North Frontage Road.
The press release stated that upon arrival, deputies learned that three suspects entered the Chevron, one of them armed with a handgun. Authorities said:
“The armed suspect walked next to a store customer while pointing the weapon toward the cashier when the customer acted immediately and disarmed him. The other two suspects fled the area when they witnessed their fellow criminal stopped. The customer was able to detain the suspect he disarmed until law enforcement arrived.”
According to police, the suspect detain during the incident was a juvenile and has since been booked into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center on one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault. The other two suspects remain at large. The case remains under investigation.
When deputies contacted the customer, who previously served in the United States Marine Corps, and asked how he was able to take control of the situation, the Marine who has not been identified, said:
“The Marine Corps taught me not to [mess] around.”
Video of the incident has been viewed more than 114,000 times and has gotten more than 3,000 comments and reactions . One commenter wrote:
“What an amazing act of courage.”
Another user said:
“That’s a true hero right there. Fast acting much appreciated.”

In a separate incident, an Oneida County ex-convict has been arrested after he was accused of shooting and pistol whipping a man he was trying to rob. According to a news released issued by the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, 38-year-old Clifton E. Bibbins of Utica, New York, was taken into custody by deputies.
New York State prison records indicate that Bibbins previously served time at the Watertown Correctional Facility in Jefferson County after he was convicted of armed robbery in 2006. 
On October 14th, deputies were called to the Milton Meadows Apartments at 10 Robins Way in the town of Lansing for a reported shooting during a home invasion. A 31-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound to his foot and cuts to his head from being hit with a handgun.
The man reported that he opened his apartment door and was attacked by two people. Police stated that the two suspects demanded money from the man. One of the men was identified as Bibbins, but the second person has not yet been identified by police.

Bibbins has been charged with first-degree assault, first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted robbery and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. All four charges are felonies. Bibbins is being held at the Tompkins County Jail with no bail. 
In another incident, authorities have arrested a Saltville, Virginia man in Spartanburg, South Carolina for his role in an armed robbery that left a gas station teller injured and $338 lighter. 
According to Saltville Police Chief Erik Puckett, 33-year-old Ryan Huffman allegedly entered a Cargo Gas Station brandishing a knife and demanding money. Puckett said Huffman injured the teller in the exchange, cutting her hand. Huffman left the building and fled the scene.

Over two weeks later, Huffman was arrested after U.S. Marshals found him staying in a motel. The arrest report states that officers found “numerous needles” inside his motel room. Huffman told officers the needles contained fentanyl.
Huffman was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center and waived his right to a trial in that jurisdiction. Puckett said Huffman will be extradited to Virginia where he will face charges of armed robbery and malicious wounding, both of which are felonies.

ROCHESTER, NY- On Tuesday, October 12th, authorities with the Rochester Police Department (RPD) released body camera footage of a gunfight inside a Family Dollar store that left an armed robber dead.
[embedded content]
The day before her resignation as the city’s top cop, Rochester Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan released a video briefing the deadly incident. In the video release, she stated:
“It’s always been my goal to be as transparent as possible with the public and to share as much information as we can while keeping in mind that we have to respect the evidentiary value in certain instances.”
The video shared a timeline of events. The chief said the incident began when the city’s 911 call center received a hang-up call at about 9:32 p.m. on October 6th. The 911 operator called back the number and spoke with an employee of the Family Dollar store located in the 700-block of West Main Street.
During the call, the employee told the 911 operator:
“We’re getting robbed … there is male holding the store manager at gunpoint.”
Police said the employee gave a description of the armed robbery suspect as a black man in a blue hoodie and a mask. The body camera showed that when officers entered the Family Dollar store moments later, one of them asked if anyone in the store had a gun.
Video showed that the officers spotted the suspect in the blue hoodie behind the counter with both of his hands in the front pocket of his sweatshirt. One officer told the suspect:
“Let me see your hands. Get out of your pocket, get your hands out of your pocket.”

On Wednesday, the New York State Attorney General’s Office released its own body-worn camera video of the incident, one day after body-worn camera footage was released by the Rochester Police Department. https://t.co/6EGQx3fma9
— Spectrum News 1 ROC (@SPECNews1ROC) October 14, 2021

The video showed the suspect sprinting away into the store, down an isle, ignoring the officer’s commands. The officer chased the suspect, since identified as 24-year-old Simran Gordon. Video showed that the officer managed to grab Gordon’s arm for a split second.
Police stated that then Gordon fired a shot at the officer through a paper bag in which he’d hidden his handgun, causing the officer to return fire. In the video, another shot is heard two seconds later.
Body camera video showed the backup officer had run down the parallel aisle in the store and encountered Gordon at the end where he had fallen. The handgun he had just fired through the paper bag was still in his hand and pointed at the officer.
Police stated that the backup officer fired one shot at the armed suspect. Both officers repeatedly ordered Gordon to drop his weapon, but he failed to comply. The video showed the backup officer was able to kick the handgun out of the suspect’s reach.
Gordon was killed during the shootout. Chief Herriott-Sullivan addressed criticism that officer hadn’t moved quickly enough to render aid to the wounded suspect, despite having called for an ambulance within 30 seconds of the shooting. The police chief explained:
“The officers did not initially render first aid to Mr. Gordon because they had to ensure there were no other suspects in the store or at the scene for everyone’s safety. Our condolences go out to the family of Mr. Gordon.”

— NewsChannel 9 (@NewsChannel9) October 12, 2021

The Rochester Police Locus Club released a statement, saying:
“We commend the bravery and professionalism of those officers involved last week in stopping a violent robbery in progress. They put their lives on the line for others when a violent individual made the choice to commit multiple crimes, including shooting at them.”
The statement added:
“Some City Council members have now started to release statements that try to support the officers’ heroic-actions. Others didn’t even bother addressing the community about two young officers nearly being murdered.
These politicians have agendas and have lost sight of the fact that an armed robber targeted community members and tried to kill a cop in this city. There should be no agendas, there should be no sides – everyone should be outraged by this brazen act.”
The statement concluded:
“The City Council statements talk about the complexity of police-community relations. They fail to take ownership for their contribution when they turned their backs on officers and on community members facing unprecedented levels of violent crime.
City Council members should be about this community and not about agendas. They need to start listening to the victims in this city and stop pandering for politics.”Do you want to join our private family of first responders and supporters?  Get unprecedented access to some of the most powerful stories that the media refuses to show you.  Proceeds get reinvested into having active, retired and wounded officers, their families and supporters tell more of these stories.  Click to check it out.

Robbery suspects caught on video wrestling victim to the ground at a gas station in police-defunded Washington DC
August 5th, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C.– According to authorities, five suspects are being sought after a robbery and beating of a victim at a D.C. gas station was captured on video. 
[embedded content]
The Metropolitan Police Department released the surveillance footage of the attack hoping that the public will help identify the suspects. Police stated that the incident began just after 11:10 p.m. on July 24th.
The footage appears to show three people surrounding a male near a parked car at at gas station in the northeast quadrant of the city.
One of the individuals is seen on a bicycle. As the victim begins to walk away, one of the suspects grabs him from behind while another appears to reach into his pants pockets.
The victim is then shoved to the ground and kicked several times. At that point, another suspect comes and appears to help the other two suspects as they appear to go through the victim’s pockets.

The Washington, D.C., Council unanimously rejected an $11 million proposal by D.C. @MayorBowser for more police in the district amid growing violence. https://t.co/cwvmRIl3U5 pic.twitter.com/9o9qKh5bo8
— Climate Dispatch (@ccdeditor) August 4, 2021

As the attack is happening, a person gets into the driver’s seat of the car where the confrontation initially took place and pulls away. The suspect on the bicycle watches a fifth person comes and appears to rob the victim as well.
All five suspects left the scene and left the victim on the ground. Before fleeing, video shows one of the attackers kick the victim once more.
According to data, as of Wednesday, August 4th, robberies are up 3 percent in the city with 1,049 being reported compared to 1,013 in the same time frame in 2020.
Amid an increase in violence across the city, a 31-year-old teacher and father of four was killed on Saturday, July 31st. The victim, Kervin Sanchez, was a teacher at Hope Tolson. His death comes as the city struggles to keep a grip on public safety.

“D.C. resident speaks out on the crime surge in the Democrat-run city:

— Republican Women of Mercer County 💪 (@RWOMC) August 5, 2021

Marvin Moore, a longtime friend of Sanchez, told Fox News’ Steve Doocy that the current climate in the city is “very troubling.” He added:
“It’s very worrisome to not be able to predict whether or not your loved one or your family member is going to return home to you after leaving outside of the house.”
He stated:
“We are in very devastating times and this is unlike anything that I’ve seen in my entire time growing up here in D.C.”
In an effort to combat the rise in violent crime in D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser proposed an $11 million package to hire 170 new officers to bolster the city’s police force.
However, the package that the city council approved only allocates $5 million for new officers.

Crime is surging in D.C.
The city council needs to do their job.

— Christy Lewis (@Cavalewis) August 4, 2021

In a recent statement, Bowser said:
“We need what we need. We need to hire officers as soon as we can and we need the council to understand that.”
In the month of July, D.C. reported three times more homicides than deaths from COVID-19, raising questions around the city’s priorities. Moore said:
“As a community, as a city, we have to figure it out. We have to find a way to create a better resolve. Look for alternative solutions to problem solving.”
He added:
“Something that has to be done that doesn’t leave us having to do interviews about people who’ve passed or about lives that have been lost, especially for people that have such an astounding impact on their community.”Do you want to join our private family of first responders and supporters?  Get unprecedented access to some of the most powerful stories that the media refuses to show you.  Proceeds get reinvested into having active, retired and wounded officers, their families and supporters tell more of these stories.  Click to check it out.

Police-bashing, BLM-backing D.C. mayor suddenly says ‘defunding the police’ is a bad idea after latest shooting
May 21st, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC – The mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser, criticized the “defund the police” efforts being taken by the D.C. Council on May 19th following a shooting that occurred in the Shaw neighborhood the evening prior that has left a mother and son in critical condition.

.@MayorBowser criticized “defund the police” efforts in the D.C. Council, saying more officers are needed and the city has not been able to hire more because of Council budget cuts for police. https://t.co/riwudocbYR

On May 18th slightly before 7:00 p.m., a male subject had parked a rental scooter in the middle of the sidewalk along the 1500 block of 10th Street NW in the Shaw neighborhood.
The neighborhood is considered to be one of the more upper-class areas, with the likes of active construction going on around the block for new homes alongside side some pricey properties.
For reasons unknown, this parked scooter had caused some sort of an altercation between the male subject and at least one other adult that was among a group of other adults that had their children outside as well.
Witnesses say that during this altercation, the male subject pulled out a gun and started shooting – striking one woman and her four-year-old son.
No arrests have been made yet in the case, with officials saying that the suspect is a black male that was wearing a ski-mask mask during the shooting and fled the area on foot following the gunfire.  

D.C. police chief says argument over where scooter was parked at 10th and P streets NW led to a man shooting at a family, striking woman and child, critically injuring both. Chief said man shot an “innocent family.” Says: “The Metropolitan Police Department is coming for you.”
— Peter Hermann (@phscoop) May 19, 2021

One of the neighbors, retired U.S. Navy Admiral Roger Gilberton, has stated that he’d heard the gunfire go off and witnessed a group of people running in fear following the shooting:
“We heard about half a dozen shots and then just a few seconds after that there were five or six people running down P Street.”
Authorities say that at least four gunshots were recorded during the incident.
The two gunshot victims, who have not been identified by officials, were last reported as being in critical condition.
Following an event on May 19th, Mayor Bowser informed reporters inquiring about the investigation that police are “doing everything they can to catch the shooter, and to stop things like this from happening in the future by getting the guns out of the hands of people who have shown they are willing to use them.”
However, Mayor Bowser mentioned that the efforts being taken by the D.C. Council to “defund the police” is not helping the matter, pointing to how budget cuts enacted by the Council have impacted the police department’s ability to onboard much-needed officers.
Back in June of 2020, when calls to defund police departments were likely at their highest point, the D.C. Council voted to cut $15 million from the Metropolitan Police Department.

Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee did convey that the police are actively searching for the at-large suspect:
“The Metropolitan Police is coming for him, he should be ashamed of himself for what he did to this family tonight.
“And he has to be held accountable for his actions. The community demands it, I demand it, he has to be held accountable for his actions, that’s unacceptable.”
This is an ongoing investigation.

When it comes to the topic of defunding police, it turns out that it’s not even a popular notion in cities like Portland. 
Law Enforcement Today recently shared a report that shows that 75% of Portland residents do not support defunding the city’s police force. 
Here’s that previous report from earlier in May. 
_
PORTLAND, OR – Nearly one year since the “defund the police” movement began, a new poll has revealed that nearly 75% of Portland residents stated they do not support defunding the city’s police force. 

Amid calls to ‘defund the police,’ most Portland residents want police presence maintained or increased, poll finds https://t.co/OMmUGfyDfR
— D.R. Couric (@DRCouric) May 19, 2021

According to a recent poll commissioned by The Oregonian, three-fourths of Portland-area residents said that they do not want to see policing in the city dip below its current levels, with a several stating that they support an increase in police.
From April 30 to May 6, 2021, DHM Research conducted a survey of 600 residents in the Portland metro region. The survey consisted of 600 adult residents in the Portland metro region with half of them in the city of Portland.
When asked in the survey, “Do you think downtown Portland is more or less safe than it was 12 months ago?” 42% of those survey said that it is “much less safe” and only two percent stated it was “much safer.”
Fewer than a quarter of survey participants in Portland and even less among suburban residents, believe that there should be fewer police officers. This important findings coming as activists and some civic leaders in Portland continue to demand further reductions in the police force.
Survey participant Brandon Lane, 61, said that it makes sense to beef up the city’s police force amid a large spike in shootings, a homelessness and addiction crisis, and a downtown battered by a pandemic and months of destructive protests.
Lane stated:
“I’m not sure that it needs to be drastically higher,  but if we defund or reduce the headcount any further, we’re likely to be inviting bigger problems.”
https://twitter.com/TX_VisionShock/status/1394124832208572420
Fox News reported that the poll found that in addition to 75% of respondents who disapprove of the city’s handling of the homelessness situation, 68% also stated that they are not happy with how protests and riots have been handled.
Residents surveyed about the city’s downtown said that they plan to visit less frequently, mainly citing the homelessness and rioting that has plagued the area for nearly a year.
Respondents to the poll used words like “dirty,” “trash,” “riots,” and “unsafe” to describe the heart of the city, which appears to have deteriorated during the COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest of the past year.
Downtown Portland, once a cultural and tourist center, is now filled with homeless tents, smashed windows, graffiti, trash, and boarded-up businesses. 
The city has yet to quell continued destruction caused by smaller groups who go through the city purporting to demonstrate for racial justice, smashing windows, and tagging buildings in the process.
Residents also expressed frustration with the apparent lack of arrests related to the destruction. Respondent Laurie Lago, 75, who lives near where the protests have been centered, said:
“There seems in the last year to be this permission to do violence.”

“Downtown in distress: Portland’s core is unsafe and uninviting, residents say in new poll, threatening city’s recovery” https://t.co/Y6MRsImQSM #poll @Oregonian pic.twitter.com/Jqa3PsgdwB

In response to the survey results, Daryl Tuner, the executive director of the Portland Police Association, the union that represents the city’s rank-and-file officers, said:
“Residents want to be safe and protected and they don’t have that feeling right now.”
He added that City Council trimmed the police budget by $15 million during summer 2020. He stated:
“This message is clearly not being heard by Portland’s elected leaders, who only listen to those who talk the loudest.”
After the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office refused to file charges against many of the rioters arrested for assaulting police and destroying property during 2020, federal prosecutors stepped up at the urging of then-President Donald Trump and filed charges against 97 suspects.
However, under President Joe Biden’s administration, 58 of those cases have been deferred or outright dismissed. Felony assaults on federal officers were the nexus for 16 of the 31 deferred cases.
Seven suspects plead guilty, but reportedly, only one will serve any prison time. Former acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chard Wolf, said in a statement:
“It’s offensive to all the men and women who risked their lives in Portland for 90 to 120 days or even longer in some cases, being attached night after night after night.”

75% of Portland residents don’t want decrease in law enforcement presence despite calls to defund the police https://t.co/PxgRyFeXZB
— Newsweek (@Newsweek) May 18, 2021

In 2020, when the city cut $15 million from the Portland Police Bureau’s (PPB) budget, the move did away with school resource officers, the Gun Violence Reduction Team, and the Transit Division Program.
The Gun Violence Reduction Team was later brought back to help combat the surge in gun violence, but there was no additional funds to help support it.
In the meantime, city lawmakers dumped $6 million into adding 24 unarmed park rangers to patrol neighborhoods and parks as well as to help fund community organizations seeking to address violence in the community.

GA GOP Chairman David Schafer Rips GBI For Ignoring Massive Evidence Of Election Fraud

The Georgie Bureau of Investigation is obviously corrupt. This week, the GBI released a statement via the Atlanta Journal Constitution which denied any justification for an investigation after ‘reviewing’ election fraud evidence presented. The information in question from True The Vote presents hundreds of cell phone numbers making routine stops at drop boxes’ around Georgia deposting tens of thousands of ballots.

GBI Director Vic Reynolds wrote in a letter obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday that GPS signals alone, without any witnesses or perpetrators, fall short of meriting a fresh law enforcement inquiry, wrote the AJC.

“Based on what has been provided and what has not been provided, an investigation is not justified,” Reynolds wrote.

The following is a letter from GA GOP Chairman David Shafer rebutting this sham ‘investigation’. Shafer calls out the GBI for ignoring the facts.

Poll: Which do you believe is the most pressing issue facing America today?

Without fair elections none of the other choices will even be a consideration. Unless we get rid of the dominion machines we will not have fair elections. Without Election DAY, we will not have fair elections. Unless we have transparency in the voting process, monitored by bi-partisan oversight, we will not have fair elections. Unless we have voter registration of LEGAL American citizens, we will not have fair elections. Mark Levin said it best, ‘Why don’t we just send blank ballots out to every other country and let them vote as well.’ Lastly, and aside, NEVER let anyone take away our 2nd Amendment rights, eg: see Australia and New Zealand.

Fauci’s Resignation Is Not Far Off

Natalie Pulse reporter Natalie Winters talks about her reporting on the coverup on U.S. involvement with China in developing gain-of-function research to weaponize coronavirus.
“Raheem [Kassam] predicted several months back that Peter Daszak would be the fall guy. He would be the person they would try to pin this on… The only reason we had a coverup was none other than Anthony Fauci. … Getting to the bottom of Covid-19, the origins of it, obviously all roads lead to the Chinese Communist Party, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and that would vindicate the person that  they hate the most — Donald Trump, who has been saying from Day 1 that this virus was released from a Chinese Communist Party-run lab that traces its roots to Beijing. If the media did its due diligence, they would confirm what he has been saying.”

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Voters Overwhelmingly Support Proposals to Strengthen Election Integrity Laws

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Voters Overwhelmingly Support Proposals to Strengthen Election Integrity Laws

Please Follow us on Gab, Minds, Telegram, Rumble, Gab TV, GETTR

The entire October 21, 2021 CDMedia/Big Data Poll: Virginia Voters Oppose Transgender, Gender Neutral Bathrooms in Public Schools, and all CDMedia/Big Data Polling is located here.

Voters in Virginia overwhelmingly support a series of proposals aiming to strengthen election integrity, such as photo identification (Voter ID), strict signature verification, bans on ballot harvesting and drop boxes, and more. A new CD Media Big Data Poll conducted among likely gubernatorial election voters in the Old Dominion finds a total 80.5% back laws “requiring all voters to provide photo identification to cast a vote,” while a paltry 11.4% oppose it and 8.1% are unsure.

That broad coalition includes 83% of white voters, 69% of black voters, 78.9% of Hispanic voters, 89.1% of Asians and 83.4% identifying with other races. By party, voter ID is backed by 71.2% of Democrats, 90.8% of Republicans and 78.3% identifying as Independent/Other.

“Signature verification, or the matching of voters’ signatures to driver’s license or an official voter registration card” was backed by 72.6%, to include 46.6% who strongly support it. Once again, large majorities of voters identifying with each party and racial demographic group support the verification procedure.

“Once again, we have found a deep disconnect between voters’ views on election reform and what is portrayed in the media,” Big Data Poll Director Rich Baris, said. “Very small minorities with a disproportionately loud voice in media and the political process look to sow division over issues that enjoy widespread agreement.”

“Frankly, it’s sad and tragic.”

In fact, voters in Virginia express broad support for lesser known proposals facing similar opposition, while rejecting others that have been advanced by many states. A majority, 56.7%, support “bans on ballot harvesting and drop boxes,” rejecting “the practice of allowing non-government third parties to collect and deliver ballots not belonging to them.”

Fairfax County has already signaled that it will not only take days before they report results in full, but also the total number of votes cast countywide in the upcoming statewide election. But 71.1% would support the imposition of “Election Day deadlines for officials to report the total number of votes cast in their precincts/counties,” to include 45.9% who strongly support the proposal.

The CD Media Big Data Poll in Virginia was sponsored by CD Media and conducted by Big Data Poll, interviewing 1,061 likely voters statewide via online survey panel from October 16 to October 20, 2021. The survey sampling error is ± 3.0% at a 95% confidence interval. Results were weighted to represent statewide voter file demographics to include gender, age, race and region.

Polls show Trump-endorsed Glenn Youngkin can WIN Virginia governor’s race

Polls show Trump-endorsed Glenn Youngkin can WIN Virginia governor’s race

Republican Glenn Youngkin is edging out his challenger, former Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe, in the polls with less than two weeks until Virginia’s competitive gubernatorial race.

According to various polling groups, the Trump-endorsed Youngkin has a sizable chance of becoming the next governor of Virginia, replacing the state’s disgraced Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam.

According to a recent Monmouth poll, Youngkin and McAuliffe are tied with 46 percent to 46 percent, closing a five point gap from last month when McAuliffe was ahead of Youngkin by five points. Youngkin leads McAuliffe among independent voters with 48 percent to 39 percent, a stark increase from his 37 percent to 46 percent deficit from last month.

A Trafalgar Group poll reported that Youngkin is ahead of McAuliffe with 48.4 percent to 47.5 percent, less than one percent. According to the poll, Joe Biden’s approval rating in Virginia has tanked to 39.9 percent. Biden won Virginia by more than 10 points in the 2020 presidential election.

Gov. Ralph Northam’s approval rating is underwater as well. According to Trafalgar, only 41.8 percent approve of his performance as governor. Northam came under fire two years ago after it was discovered that he was pictured in his yearbook dressed in blackface or a KKK outfit. Northam claimed that he could not remember which of the two he was dressed as.

Democrat Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam endorsed Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Northam’s approvals sank following the revelation of his medical school yearbook photo in which he was dressed in either blackface or a KKK outfit.

McAuliffe’s previously considerable lead over Youngkin narrowed over the past month after he commented during the gubernatorial debate that parents should not be telling schools what they should teach. McAuliffe’s words angered many parents in the state amid reports that schools were assigning reading materials to students that contained sexually explicit, pornographic content involving children to students without informing parents.

McAuliffe vetoed a bill as governor that would have informed parents that students were being assigned materials with sexually explicit content. Youngkin questioned McAuliffe on why he vetoed the bill during the gubernatorial debate.

Republican Glenn Youngkin released a scorching ad against his opponent, Democrat Terry McAuliffe, over his comments that parents should not be telling schools what they should teach amid reports of sexually explicit materials being assigned to students in schools.

“Yeah, I stopped the bill,” McAuliffe bragged. “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

McAuliffe’s words have deeply upset many parents, according to the Trafalgar Group poll. Nearly 55 percent of residents disagreed with McAuliffe’s statement that parents should not have a say in their child’s education, while 37 percent agreed.

Democrats are ramping up campaign efforts in liberal areas of the state to increase Democrat turnout in the upcoming gubernatorial race. Joe Biden is scheduled to make a campaign stop for McAuliffe in Arlington this week following Kamala Harris’ appearance. Former President Barack Obama campaigned for McAuliffe at Virginia Commonwealth University on Saturday.

While President Donald Trump has not scheduled a campaign rally in Virginia, he endorsed Glenn Youngkin in May, telling Virginians to say “yes to Patriot Glenn Youngkin!”

“Glenn is pro-Business, pro-Second Amendment, pro-Veterans, pro-America, he knows how to make Virginia’s economy rip-roaring, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” said Trump.

Trump continued, “[McAuliffe] was responsible for many of the problems Virginia currently has. Virginia doesn’t need the Clintons or the Communist Chinese running the state, so say no to Terry McAuliffe, and yes to Patriot Glenn Youngkin!”

Virginia’s gubernatorial election will take place on Nov. 2, 2021.

Trump says Maricopa County ‘officials LIED and then tried to cover it up’

Trump says Maricopa County ‘officials LIED and then tried to cover it up’

A new report on the forensic audit of Maricopa County, Ariz. has scored another major win for President Trump and proponents of election integrity.

Cyber Ninjas, the independent firm that spearheaded the 2020 presidential election audit in Arizona, responded to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ repeated claims that the election process in their county was safe and secure:

“Maricopa County continues to purposely mislead Arizonans and the American public about the nature of audit findings, and the impact they had on the 2020 General Election. Their response renames and redefines audit findings so the claim can be made that the findings are false, includes logical sounding arguments that simply don’t add up, and is completely devoid of any supporting evidence.”

President Trump this week also slammed the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in a statement, calling them “RINOs” who have been spreading “outright lies” about the findings of the forensic audit.

“The board provided zero evidence for their false claims,” Trump fired off, “including no accounting for the 12,772 illegal ballots (more than the election margin alone) who moved outside of Maricopa County before the election.”

“They have no valid answer for how there were more early ballots returned by voters than received, why their official results did not match who voted, why there were more duplicate ballots than originals, or why they deleted and purged their Election Management System data in defiance of a subpoena, which is against the law, and they did on the day before the audit began,” he continued.

NEW!President Trump:“Look at what just happened in Arizona last night for the people that really won the Election, by a lot, us.…The Presidential Election in Arizona (and in numerous states) was a Fraud…Arizona should decertify their Fake Election results immediately!” pic.twitter.com/8YSANPAmkz— Liz Harrington (@realLizUSA) October 22, 2021

According to the detailed review of the 2020 presidential election that was released in late September, Maricopa County’s forensic auditors and canvassers reported 698,239 problematic ballots, including duplicates, ballots with non-verified signatures, and ghost voters.

Additionally, a new independent analysis on Pima County has shown that election irregularities were not limited to Maricopa alone. In Pima County, a limited analysis identified 17,322 duplicate ballots, 9,000 more mail-in voters than ballots, more than 20,000 voters via mail-in voting who have moved to different locations, and 2,383 voters who no longer lived in the same county.

Based on these findings, it appears that election irregularities were widespread throughout the state, and the sheer numbers of problematic ballots vastly outweighs the slim margin of presidential victory in the state for Joe Biden, which was just over 10,000 votes.

“The Presidential Election in Arizona (and in numerous states) was a Fraud,” President Trump said this week. “Maricopa County officials lied, and then tried to cover it up. Now they are facing criminal liability since defying a subpoena and deleting election records are serious crimes. Hopefully, Attorney General Mark Brnovich will do something about it.”

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has previously made light of the election audit situation in Arizona, despite having received pressure to investigate allegations and reports of fraud from conservative lawmakers like Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican, and thousands of concerned Arizonans who fear for the integrity of the election process in their state.

President Trump has previously called for a “new election” to take place in Arizona if the reports of fraud are not resolved and decertified. “Arizona should decertify their Fake Election results immediately!” he demanded in his statement. In light of the flood of data on election irregularities coming out of Arizona every week, it is not an impossibility that decertification could occur.

Decertification of a presidential election is certainly unprecedented, but the disturbing nature and breadth of the reported election fraud in Arizona is staggering. It appears that the possibility of reversing the presidential election or at the very least, holding another election, is plausible.

Report: Democrats growing pessimistic about future elections

Report: Democrats growing pessimistic about future elections

Democrat insiders are beginning to dread the upcoming midterm elections. And given the negative stories hitting the party from all angles, this is not an irrational fear.

An unnamed Democrat congressional aid told The Hill that “to be blunt, I’m not feeling good about where we are. It was never going to be easy or anything. It was always kind of contingent on what got done. I just think we’re starting to see how fragile this is.”

If winning elections is “contingent on what got done,” then Democrats ought to worry.

The moderate and far-left wings of the party are at each other’s throats over a proposed infrastructure bill and $3.5 trillion progressive-favored reconciliation bill.

Congressional Democrats are not projecting party unity at a time when they have little room for error.

The Republicans only need to flip five seats to win back the House and given that redistricting maps are mostly being redrawn by Republicans, the odds are not in their favor.

Democrat socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders took provocative action recently by publishing an op-ed in the home state of Sen. Joe Manchin, who is widely considered a moderate Democrat, to criticize his decisions.

Sanders put pressure on Manchin, writing, “Poll after poll shows overwhelming support for this legislation. Yet, the political problem we face is that in a 50-50 Senate we need every Democratic senator to vote ‘yes.’ We now have only 48. Two Democratic senators remain in opposition, including Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.”

Manchin fired back at Bernie by tweeting that “This isn’t the first time an out-of-stater has tried to tell West Virginians what is best for them despite having no relationship to our state.”

Midterm elections are notoriously difficult for the party of a new president to win the majority in Congress. And this historical problem could be even more challenging for Democrats to overcome given Joe Biden’s falling approval ratings.

The latest poll from Gallup shows that Biden’s approval rating dropped from 56 percent in Q1 to 44.7 percent in the third quarter of 2021 which represents an 11.3 percent decline.

No president since the end of World War Two has experienced such decline in such a short amount of time.

Then there are the implications of what will result from the Virginia gubernatorial race between Trump-endorsed Republican Glenn Youngkin and former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

McAuliffe, a Democrat, once appeared to be the clear favorite in the race, but that is no longer the case.

Youngkin has gained steam in the last month of the race, in large part by riding the wave of anger from Virginia parents who are upset with what school boards such as the one in Loudoun County, Va., are teaching their children.

Real Clear Politics Average of polls have McAuliffe with a narrow lead, but two new polls show the race tied, and one even shows Youngkin with a slight lead.

The Virginia race is being closely watched by politicos to see if a Republican will benefit from the anti-Critical Race Theory rage, thus representing a bellwether race for the 2022 midterms.

And then there is the specter of a potential Trump campaign in 2024.

The list of Democrat strategists who reportedly fear a likely bid from President Trump to take back the White House in 2024 is growing. And considering Joe Biden’s recent dip in the polls combined with a lack of strong Democrat candidates, they have ample reasons for taking this view.

Add all these variables together and you get a bunch of nervous Democrats.

Herschel Walker’s new campaign ad embodies American patriotism

Herschel Walker’s new campaign ad embodies American patriotism

Retired NFL star and Trump ally, Herschel Walker, released a new campaign advertisement highlighting his hometown roots and patriotic message for America. “I’m running for U.S. Senate because I love this country and I love my home state of Georgia,” said Walker.The narration of the ad begins with Don Norton, athletic director and head football coach at Johnson County High School. Norton’s praise of Walker extends beyond his legendary football pedigree.

“To me and our kids here at Johnson County High School, he’s more of a role model and a fantastic human being,” says Norton. Norton describes Walker as someone that treats everyone with the upmost respect. “He treats everybody as if they are more important than he is,” says Norton. Although Walker is a beloved homegrown figure, not everything is peachy in the Peach State. The digital ad comes just one day after Republican primary rival, Gary Black, Georgia’s current Agriculture Commissioner, released a statewide radio commercial critiquing Walker’s immigration policy. “Herschel Walker sides with Biden and Warnock – Herschel supports amnesty – and citizenship for illegals,” said Black.

Despite Black’s accusation, Walker’s words at Trump’s Save America rally in Perry, Georgia ring differently. “I’m a conservative because I like law and order; I’m a conservatives because I like school choice; I’m a conservative because I like border control,” said Walker.

After years of scoring touchdowns on the field in sold out stadiums, the gridiron superstar has already scored a most prized possession in the political arena, President Trump’s endorsement.

“Herschel Walker is a friend, a Patriot, and an outstanding American who is going to be a great United States Senator,” said Trump. The glowing compliments from the 45th president should act as a shield against naysayers questioning Walker as a bona fide conservative.

“He embodies ‘America First’ and the winning spirit of Georgia – Herschel is tough on crime and borders, and he will always stand in support of law enforcement, military, and our Vets,” said Trump. The official endorsement follows Walker’s announcement to run for U.S. Senate last summer.Republicans have their sights set on defeating Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock in 2022. However, the GOP primary is shaping up to be a congested election with Walker and Black trending as the top two candidates.

With that said, the former Heisman trophy winner is a clear favorite according to Trafalgar’s latest poll. The poll shows Herschel Walker leading the way with a 70 point lead over Black who placed second with just 6.3 percent of the vote. In a hypothetical general election, CD Media/Georgia Record/Big Data polled Walker as the frontrunner with 45.9 percent of the vote and Warnock with 40.6 percent. As the election season matures, the road to unseating Sen. Warnock will be an expensive one. According to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission, Warnock reportedly raised $9.5 million in the third quarter of this year. Walker was the closest of the Republican challengers, having raised $3.7 million during the his first five weeks of campaigning. While this is set to be a close race, Walker is presently a clear favorite among conservative voters. In the words of Don Norton, “When you say the name, Herschel Walker, you think of Georgia.”

Trump blasts McCain family for ‘hoping to stop the Trump Train’

Trump blasts McCain family for ‘hoping to stop the Trump Train’

President Donald Trump slammed the McCain family this week in a new statement, decrying their political hypocrisy and ripping the late Sen. John McCain for his attempts to “stop the Trump train” during the 2016 presidential election. 

Trump remarked of the late Senator, “In his own very special way, he was a RINO’s RINO. Despite his fighting against me, I won Arizona by a lot in 2016 and won Arizona by even more in 2020—unfortunately the vote counters in 2020 were far more important than the candidate (See the determinative Report issued Wednesday by the Arizona Auditors!).” 

NEW!President Trump:“Isn’t it funny that Meghan McCain, who has always been a bully and basically a lowlife, is now complaining that it was she who was bullied by the Slobs and Radical Left maniacs of “The View.”… pic.twitter.com/JmxlCFJepc— Liz Harrington (@realLizUSA) October 22, 2021

Sen. John McCain died in 2018 after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. In 2008, McCain ran as the Republican presidential nominee against Democratic nominee and then-dark horse candidate and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.

McCain’s daughter, Meghan, recently walked away from her job as a co-host at “The View,” where she frequently sparred with more progressive co-hosts like Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. Meghan, who provided a moderately tepid conservative perspective on the show, later claimed that she was bullied on “The View,” citing her premature departure as a direct result of an alleged toxic work environment. 

“Isn’t it funny that Meghan McCain, who has always been a bully and basically a lowlife, is now complaining that it was she who was bullied by the Slobs and Radical Left maniacs of ‘The View,’” Trump commented in his statement. Additionally, Trump said that Meghan McCain, with the applied pressure of many of her representatives, pressed him to allow John McCain’s funeral to take place in 2018. Trump said, “At the request of many of her representatives, I made it possible for her father to have the world’s longest funeral, designed and orchestrated by him, even though I was never, to put it mildly, a fan.” 

The late senator did not support President Trump during the 2016 election or during Trump’s time in office. McCain even voiced his thoughts about Trump’s supporters by calling them “crazies” in 2015.

“That was very insulting to those people,” Trump remarked. “They were great people and they were worrying about illegal immigration, which is a huge problem that I brought up three weeks ago and that was a big firestorm and it turned out I was right.”

Now, Trump is not backing down from his ongoing feud with the McCain family, slamming Meghan for her perceived conservative duplicity. Meghan has been staunchly critical of Trump’s policies for the past several years, and has consistently criticized President Trump’s comments toward her father.

Trump concluded his thoughts on the McCain family with a searing statement: “I have since found out that McCain [Sen. John McCain], who was close to last in his class at Annapolis, sent the fake and totally discredited scam Dossier to the FBI, hoping to stop the ‘Trump Train.’ In any event, Meghan should fight the Communists instead of explaining how they beat her, hurt her, and made her ‘physically ill.’ She should fight back against the Losers of The View the way she fights against very good and well-meaning Republicans, and she would do herself a world of good!”

Report: Florida has LOWEST Covid case rates in the nation

Report: Florida has LOWEST Covid case rates in the nation

According to new numbers released by the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC), Florida now has the lowest number of coronavirus cases in the nation, with just 75 for every 100,000 reported cases.

Florida, which has remained a bastion of individual liberty amidst a federal push for freedom-restricting vaccine mandates, is vastly outpacing the rest of the country in terms of Covid-related recovery. Led by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida has never instated any type of vaccination mandates or prolonged lockdowns.

Christina Pushaw, spokeswoman for DeSantis, tweeted Florida’s case rates.

Circling back. Here are today’s case rates per 100,000 according to the CDC: Vermont – 236 Maine – 209 Florida – 75 👀 https://t.co/YeTwuA2P52— Christina Pushaw (@ChristinaPushaw) October 22, 2021

In fact, DeSantis has spoken out in staunch opposition to vaccine mandates of any kind, stating that “No one should lose their job over these shots. I think we want to protect people’s jobs. These are folks that have been working this whole time…we considered them heroes just a year ago. Now we’re going to let them go by the wayside?”

In contrast, the state of Vermont has a case rate of 236 cases per 100,000 reported cases. The Vermont Department of Health’s case dashboard reports 224 new cases right now, despite the fact that 89.3 percent of the population has been vaccinated against the coronavirus, with over 965,000 doses administered in the state.

Proponents of draconian Covid lockdowns and vaccine mandates have criticized the Florida governor’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, despite the fact that the Sunshine State has statistically shown lower Covid cases per county than in other places where tyrannical mandates have been instated.

For example, according to data collected by John Hopkins, Los Angeles County in California leads the nation in confirmed Covid cases, despite extremely strict, ongoing lockdown measures and vaccination mandates. The data seems to illustrate a connection between lockdowns and mandates and higher Covid case counts.

This week, Gov. Ron DeSantis called on the Florida Legislature to form a special session to pursue stronger protections for Floridians whose jobs are being threatened by federal government vaccine mandates.

“Your right to earn a living should not be contingent upon COVID shots,” he announced in a statement. “When the vaccines first came out, we worked very hard to provide it, particularly to our elderly, but we said from day one: we will make it available for all, but we will mandate it on none because ultimately we want individuals to make the determinations about what is right for them. I want a state in which people are able to maintain their livelihoods, earn a living, and provide for their families. And if the federal government or big corporations are hurting people, then we have a responsibility to step up and lead.”

It appears that Florida’s approach to fighting the coronavirus is working exceptionally well. Rather than relying on vaccines alone, DeSantis has also opened 21 monoclonal antibody treatment sites in Florida, providing an alternative to the coronavirus vaccines being distributed by the federal government.

The governor commented on the treatment sites, saying, “We’re doing thousands [of antibody treatments] every day. Just think, a lot of those folks … would have needed to be admitted to a hospital had they not had access to that treatment. It also makes sure that you’re not having admissions that continue to explode, that takes a lot of stress off the hospital.”

Having the lowest case count in the nation is something to be proud of as it sets an example for the rest of the country in potential approaches they could take to drastically reduce the number of Covid cases in each state.

49 Other States Need to Protect Babies From Abortion Like Texas Has

49 Other States Need to Protect Babies From Abortion Like Texas Has

In the Biden administration’s latest attack on the Texas Heartbeat Act (SB 8), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) asked the U.S. Supreme Court to place a hold on the law until legal challenges have been heard. In addition to requesting the Supreme Court to vacate the Fifth Circuit’s stay of the district court’s preliminary injunction, the DOJ took the unusual step of filing a petition for writ of certiorari before judgment — that is, the DOJ asked the Supreme Court to rule on the issues before the Fifth Circuit. In its response, the State of Texas said the Supreme Court should not vacate the Fifth Circuit’s stay. But if the Supreme Court were to take the extraordinary step of deciding the substantive issue, Texas would ask that Roe and Casey be overturned.
With the Court gearing up to hear oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case (concerning Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban) on December 1, Texas has become the second state currently asking the Court to overturn Roe and Casey. On Thursday, Attorney General Ken Paxton said:

“The Court erred in recognizing the right to abortion in Roe and in continuing to preserve it in Casey. Properly understood, the Constitution does not protect a right to elective abortion, and any laws affecting abortion should be subject only to a rational-basis test. The heartbeat provisions in SB 8 reasonably further Texas’s interest in protecting unborn life, which exists from the outset of pregnancy… If it reaches the merits, the Court should overturn Roe and Casey and hold that SB 8 does not therefore violate the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Earlier today, the Supreme Court agreed to allow the law to remain in place for now and to hear oral arguments regarding SB 8 on November 1, but the question will be limited to whether the United States may “bring suit in federal court and obtain injunctive or declaratory relief against the State, state court judges, state court clerks, other state officials, or all private parties to prohibit S.B. 8 from being enforced.”
Follow LifeNews.com on Instagram for pro-life pictures and videos.
In other words, the Court will not be addressing the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade – for that, America will have to wait for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Instead, the Court will rule on whether the federal government has the authority to stop a law with the unique private citizen enforcement mechanism employed in SB 8.
Thankfully, the Lone Star State has proven through five decades of pro-life perseverance that backing down from the fight is not an option. Now, as the Dobbs case brings renewed hope that Roe could be overturned and jurisdiction over abortion legislation could be returned to the states, it is more important than ever that the nation follows in Texas’ pro-life footsteps.
Prior to 1973, abortion in Texas was legal only to save the life of the mother. Norma McCorvey, otherwise known as “Jane Roe,” desired to electively abort her third child after putting her first two up for adoption. At the urging of pro-abortion lawyers, McCorvey challenged the ban on abortion in Texas and took her complaint all the way to the Supreme Court. In his oral argument, District Attorney of Dallas County Henry Wade asserted that the unborn child’s right to life surpassed the supposed right to privacy of the mother. Unfortunately, the Court did not agree and issued a decision that overturned state restrictions and made abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy the default nationwide.
The tragic Roe decision has been responsible for the deaths of more than 62 million babies. Texas has stood firm against this evil from the very start. It responded to abortion’s legalization by establishing more than 230 pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) to provide an alternative for women considering abortion. Texas now has more PRCs than any other state in the nation — and with the Texas Heartbeat Act going into effect in September, these resources are being put to good use. The legislation, which prohibits abortion after a fetal heartbeat is able to be detected (around six weeks gestation), is estimated to be saving about 150 lives each day. One pregnancy resource organization in Texas stated that it had seen a threefold increase each week in women seeking their assistance since the law went into effect.
The Texas Heartbeat Act was made possible by the coordinated efforts of legislators, judges, and a governor who recognized the human dignity of the unborn. Although this ideal team of public officials might not exist in every state, each election is an opportunity for citizens to take a stand and guide their state into following Texas’ example.
On November 2, many key victories for the pro-life movement could be won. Sitting Democratic governors in Virginia and New Jersey could be exchanged for pro-lifers. In Pennsylvania, the Supreme Court seat of a current Republican is up for grabs and must be maintained by a justice who will protect the unborn. Next year, the state will also have the opportunity to replace pro-abortion extremist Tom Wolf with a governor who will protect all Pennsylvanians — including those in the womb.
As the Dobbs case approaches the Supreme Court, with an outcome expected in 2022, and the increased pressure on the Court added by Texas today, it is more important than ever that pro-lifers hit the polls and elect people who will support pro-life laws. The day of reckoning for Roe is near, and the states must be as ready as Texas when it comes.

Joe Biden booed in his hometown of Scranton, PA

Joe Biden booed in his hometown of Scranton, PA

Joe Biden received a not-so-warm welcome upon his arrival to his hometown of Scranton, Penn. on Wednesday. Biden was serenaded with boos and expletives yelled by angry residents as his motorcade drove through the town.

Biden has proclaimed for nearly five decades that he was born and raised in Scranton, Penn. before he and his family moved to Wilmington, Del. when he was 10 years old.

Despite his roots in the blue-collar town, his fellow residents did not offer him well wishes as the presidential motorcade made its way through town.

Biden spoke to workers at the Electric City Trolley Museum to promote the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill that he claimed will cost Americans zero dollars. During his speech, Biden embarrassingly attempted to claim that he was Vice President of the United States for 36 years despite the fact that he served two terms for eight years.

Although he was certified as the winner of Pennsylvania in 2020, polling has indicated that Biden is strongly disliked by the residents of his proclaimed home state. A Civiqs poll from October reported that only 40 percent of Pennsylvanians approved of Joe Biden, while 52 percent did not.

Biden is blatantly unpopular nationwide as well. According to RealClearPolitics, less than 43 percent of Americans support Biden, while more than 51 percent dislike him. Biden’s approval ratings have been dismally low considering he allegedly received more than 81 million votes in the 2020 presidential election, which would be the most votes for any candidate in the history of the United States.

Scranton residents expressed their distaste for Biden during his visit to his blue-collar hometown. Dozens of residents turned their backs on him as his motorcade drove through the town, citing that he has failed the country with the border crisis, eliminating thousands of jobs with the cancellation of the keystone pipeline, increasing gas prices, and vaccine mandates.

“We do not have a king or a monarch here, we have a president that is elected, and we are able to criticize our elected officials, and that’s what we’re here to do,” said Dave Ragan, a Scranton resident. “We’re here to let them know that there is another side to this and he is not the most popular president in the history of our country.”

Nearly 270,000 Pennsylvanians work in the energy sector according to the state’s 2019 energy employment report. Biden has promised to eliminate fossil fuels, including a provision in the multi-trillion dollar bill that punishes facilities that use them.

Amid Biden’s growing unpopularity in the Keystone State, rising inflation and supply shortages have affected residents throughout the swing state. The 2022 senate and gubernatorial election results will be largely decided based off of the ongoing crisis surrounding the Biden administration.

Trump trounces Kamala Harris in 2024 election poll

Trump trounces Kamala Harris in 2024 election poll

President Donald Trump would be victorious against Kamala Harris in a hypothetical 2024 matchup where he is up three points, according to a survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates.

Amidst political chatter that Harris may run for president in 2024, the polls are not looking good for Joe Biden’s right-hand woman.

2024 National General Election Poll:Donald Trump 49% (+3)Kamala Harris 46%McLaughlin & Associates ~ 1,000 LV ~ 10/14-10/18https://t.co/r0pbva8bBy— PollTracker (@PollTrackerUSA) October 22, 2021

Harris’ sinking popularity comes as Joe Biden’s job approval rating sharply fell 14 percentage points since June, according to a poll conducted by Gallup.

In fact, only 42 percent of Americans reportedly approve of Biden’s performance, although another poll by Selzer and Company reported only 37 percent approval, while Grinnell College’s survey found that Biden has only retained 28 percent of the Independent vote.

#GrinnellPoll findings: @JoeBiden won the presidency in 2020 with 54% of the independent vote. Today that support is at 28%. If the 2024 election were today, Biden and Trump would both get 40% of the vote–with 14% saying they would vote for someone else. https://t.co/cNO13VztjS— Grinnell College National Poll (@GrinnellPoll) October 20, 2021

Many postulate that Kamala Harris will be the next Democrat nominee. Her popularity, however, is equally as tepid as Joe Biden’s. Even the New York Times reported that 51 percent of Americans had an unfavorable rating of Harris, making her the most unpopular vice president since the 1970s.

A contributing factor to Harris’ sinking approval ratings is likely related to her handling of the crisis at the southern border, where thousands of migrants are flooding into the United States every day, illegally. Harris refused to even visit the southern border until June 2021, just days prior to President Trump’s own trip to the border.

Additionally, it should be noted that Harris’ popularity during the Democrat primaries for the 2020 election was so disastrous that she dropped out of the presidential race before primary voting even began. Despite having spent a reported $39.7 million on her campaign, in December 2019, she held only three percent of Democrat voter support. With only single-digits ahead in the primaries, it is still a mystery as to why Joe Biden tapped Harris as his running mate. Her lack of popularity among Democrats and Republicans alike seem to have transferred over to her position in the White House.

In August 2020, Trump stated in a tweet, “@KamalaHarris started strong in the Democrat Primaries, and finished weak, ultimately fleeing the race with almost zero support. That’s the kind of opponent everyone dreams of!”

If Democrats choose Harris as a potential presidential nominee in 2024, President Trump is already poised to dominate with voters across both parties.

Bill to Legalize Assisted Suicide in UK Doesn’t Get Vote After 60 House of Lords Members Oppose It

Bill to Legalize Assisted Suicide in UK Doesn’t Get Vote After 60 House of Lords Members Oppose It

Baroness Meacher has not taken her assisted suicide Bill to a vote, following mass opposition from Peers with over 60 peers speaking against the Assisted Dying Bill during its Second Reading today in the House of Lords.
The assisted suicide lobby would likely have pushed for a vote at Second Reading if they felt they had the numbers to win a division. However, it looks like they realised that they would be unlikely to have sufficient support to win a vote today.
In the House of Lords, at Second Reading, a Bill does not need to win a vote for it to progress to the next stage in the Lords, but Baroness Meacher could have divided the House in the hope of winning the vote to demonstrate support for introducing assisted suicide from the House of Lords. If she had won this division, it would have helped give additional momentum to the assisted suicide lobby’s campaign to introduce assisted suicide.
The Bill will now to proceed to Committee Stage, but is unlikely to be given time in Parliament to be debated in the House of Commons and become law, given that it is not supported by the Government.
The debate, which went for over seven hours, followed a very large amount of media coverage and opinion pieces from MPs, Peers, doctors, and other experts that have appeared over the last two weeks highlighting major issues with introducing assisted suicide. This has included nearly 1,700 medical professionals coming out in opposition to the Bill and an investigation by the Mail into the assisted suicide process overseas, revealing that the use of fatal drugs to end life can be a harrowing experience over hours or days for the person involved.

Lord Winston made the opening case for the opposition to the Bill and focused on the misleading title of the Bill, having laid an amendment to change references in the Bill from ‘assisted dying’ to ‘euthanasia’ instead:
“It [this Bill] raises the most important moral question and needs clarity without euphemism.
“Assisted dying could equally be used to apply to palliative care. It seems to me that this title does not really represent what is intended… euthanasia… is what we are actually talking about”.

Speaking against the Bill alongside a number of other Anglican bishops, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, declared the bill to be “unsafe”:
“No amount of regulation can make a relative kinder or a doctor infallible; No amount of reassurance can make a vulnerable or disabled person feel equally safe, equally valued if the law is changed in this way”.
“It does not serve compassion if, by granting the wishes of one closest to me, I expose others to danger; It does not serve dignity if, by granting the wishes of one closest to me, I devalue the status and safety of others.”
Former Health Minister and chief executive of the NHS Confederation, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath expressed serious concern at the prospect of pressure on vulnerable people to end their own lives through assisted suicide:
“I remain concerned about the unintended consequences of people feeling pressurised into ending their own lives, either because of fear that they might be a burden or because relatives might seek to gain through the accelerated death of a relative”.
Baroness Smith of Newnham spoke of her concerns about how the Bill is framed, saying that Peers must “legislate for the most vulnerable”, and that concerns about legalisation in Canada and the Netherlands shouldn’t be ignored by supporters of the Bill.

Lord Curry of Kirkharle echoed these fears and the dangerous impact of such a Bill on wider society:
“I fear that this country will become a society that terminates the lives of its old people, its sick and disabled people, because they fear they are being a burden to their loved ones and because of the time and the cost of their care.”
In a scathing criticism of the legal demands of the Bill on the High Court’s Family Division to approve requests for assisted suicide, Lord Carlile of Berriew QC CBE said:
“The Bill therefore asks a Family Division judge to approve something no judge has ever been asked to do since the abolition of the death penalty.”
One of the standout speakers of the debate who lives with a progressive disability, Baroness Campbell of Surbiton, the founder of Not Dead Yet UK and a long time campaigner for disability equality and human rights, spoke powerfully on the damaging effects such legislation would have on the lives and treatment of those with disabilities:
“It would alter society’s view of those in vulnerable circumstances by signalling that assisted suicide is something that they might or ought to consider”.
“Disabled people with terminal conditions or progressive conditions like mine are alarmed by the misleading narrative of autonomy and choice”.
“We must not abandon those who can benefit from high-quality health and social care to the desperate temptation of assisted suicide in the guise of a compassionate choice.”

Similarly speaking as a Peer living with a disability, Baroness Masham of Ilton highlighted the disturbing proposal to introduce prescriptions of lethal drugs into our health system:
“Lifting the lid off evil, poisonous drugs which kill is frightening and dangerous… Vulnerable people will be pressurised into thinking they are a burden.”
Lord Alton emphasised that the proposed assisted suicide legislation was unsafe and could not be supported by Peers:
“Notwithstanding the good intentions of those who produce these recurring bills, the same unanswered questions about the risks to vulnerable people… and the lack of safeguards remain and they remain unanswered”.
“In truth, what are described as safeguards are simply a wish list for what its sponsors hope would happen in an ideal world”.
“It would be profoundly irresponsible to enact legislation without knowing how many putative safeguards might work. Asking us to do otherwise is like asking Parliament to sign a blank cheque.”

Catherine Robinson, spokesperson for Right To Life UK said: 
“It is a great outcome that this Bill was not taken to a vote today. The Bill is unlikely to be given time in Parliament to be debated in the House of Commons and become law, given that it is not supported by the Government”.
“It is wonderful to see that so many Peers came out today to oppose introducing a dangerous assisted suicide law”.
“We have increasing evidence that people’s wishes to die are transient. The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing, for example, surveyed 8,174 people over the age of 50 and found that 3.5% expressed a wish to die at Wave 1 of the study. However, 72% of these participants no longer reported a wish to die when reassessed two years later. We should seek to care for those experiencing suicidal thoughts, rather than state-sanction their deaths”.
“It is no coincidence that many prominent people with disabilities, plenty of disability rights groups, and many respected healthcare professionals continue to rally against introducing assisted suicide, for it strikes against the very heart of the dignity and care we ought to afford to each human being”.

Trump: ‘The insurrection took place on November 3,’ not Jan. 6

Trump: ‘The insurrection took place on November 3,’ not Jan. 6

President Trump this week released a statement fighting back against the House Select Committee investigating the events that took place on Jan. 6 at the Capitol.

Trump contested the idea that what happened on Jan. 6 was an “insurrection.” He countered that the real “insurrection” occurred during the 2020 election.

“The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!” said the 45th president.

Trump filed a lawsuit this week to stop the House committee from obtaining documents, claiming “executive privilege.” The lawsuit struck back hard at the committee, blasting it as an “illegal fishing expedition.”

“The Committee’s request amounts to nothing less than a vexatious, illegal fishing expedition openly endorsed by Biden and designed to unconstitutionally investigate President Trump and his administration. Our laws do not permit such an impulsive, egregious action against a former President and his close advisors,” the lawsuit states.

The war between Trump and the committee took another turn on Thursday when the House voted to recommend a contempt charge against President Trump’s former advisor and campaign CEO, Steve Bannon.

The House committee on Monday issued a report recommending the house find Bannon in contempt.

The report alleges that Bannon “appears to have played a multi-faceted role in the events of January 6th, and the American people are entitled to hear his first-hand testimony regarding his actions.”

The 45th president released a statement earlier this month claiming that the Jan. 6 committee had launched a “witch hunt” against him and those closest to him.

He once again made the claim that the true insurrection took place on Nov. 3, not Jan. 6.

Trump wrote: “The Unselect Committee of partisan Democrats, and two very weak and pathetic RINOs, should come to the conclusion after spending many millions of dollars, that the real insurrection happened on November 3rd, the Presidential Election, not on January 6th — which was a day of protesting the Fake Election results.”

Among those who support bringing in Bannon for questioning is ‘RINO’ Rep. Liz Cheney who is one of only two Republicans serving on the House committee after House GOP leadership decided to boycott it.

NEW!President Donald J. Trump:”Low-polling Liz Cheney (19%) is actually very bad news for the Democrats, people absolutely cannot stand her as she fights for the people that have decimated her and her father for many years. She is a smug fool, and the great State of Wyoming pic.twitter.com/EyJMmpOxHJ— Liz Harrington (@realLizUSA) October 20, 2021

Trump had harsh words for the Wyoming representative who he called “a smug fool,” adding that “the great State of Wyoming, together with the Republican Party, fully understands her act. To look at her is to despise her. Hopefully, she will continue down this unsustainable path and she will soon be gone!”

The war of words between President Trump and Rep. Liz Cheney can be expected to continue as the Jan. 6 committee continues its quest.

Trump releases new line of ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ and ‘FJB’ apparel

Trump releases new line of ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ and ‘FJB’ apparel

President Donald Trump’s Save America PAC launched a new line of “Let’s Go Brandon” and “FJB” shirts for sale after the popular anti-Biden chants rapidly spread across the nation and the globe.

Trump’s Save America PAC is asking supporters for donations of at least $45 for a limited edition “Let’s Go Brandon” t-shirt.

Americans began chanting “Let’s Go Brandon” across the country after a NBC News reporter conducted a post-race interview earlier this month with NASCAR driver Brandon Brown. As crowds at the Talladega Superspeedway repeatedly chanted “F*** Joe Biden,” the reporter seemingly tried to salvage Biden’s image by telling the camera that they were shouting “Let’s Go Brandon.”

“As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon,’” said the NBC News reporter, despite that the real chant could be heard loud and clear.

Since the NBC reporter’s blunder, Americans have chanted the new phrase at football games, concerts, bars, and other crowded places.

Loza Alexander went viral on TikTok after releasing a hip-hop rendition of the chant, called the “Let’s Go Brandon Theme Song,” which topped Apple Music’s hip-hop/rap chart as the number one song, and the number two song across all genres.

Alexander reported that his TikTok account was frozen for “bullying” following the song’s successful debut.

Miles Whistleblowing 10/22: Social Media Will Represent the Supreme Dominion of Mankind in the Future

Miles Whistleblowing 10/22: Social Media Will Represent the Supreme Dominion of Mankind in the Future

Translated by BG [G-Translators/Authentic Writing Team]
Image source: GTV & GETTR
Mr. Miles Guo commented in his broadcast on October 22 that social media companies which survive on advertising income and selling users’ personal data, such Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. are unlikely to have a bright future because they have original sins. Social media must win the recognition of the vast majority of people across the word regardless of their religious faiths and political affiliations. Mankind will be bonded by common faith.
In the future, social media will be used to spread the faith of mankind and become a reliable platform for financial transactions. When the entire mankind is united under one faith through the social media, the concept of territory, be it Taiwan, Mainland China, or Hong Kong, will be discarded and the concept of country will carry no weight. All mankind will have its common platform, common economy, and common spiritual realm.
“Social media is more powerful than nuclear weapons because it is able to influence 50 million families at the same time, which no nuclear weapon is capable of.” Mr. Guo said, “In the future, social media will have mighty power and in effect represent the supreme dominion of mankind.”

45% of New Hampshire Democrats want Biden out in 2024, survey shows

45% of New Hampshire Democrats want Biden out in 2024, survey shows

A plurality of New Hampshire Democrats want Joe Biden to lose the state’s 2024 primary election, according to an October poll from the University of New Hampshire.

45 percent of New Hampshire Democrats polled want Biden to face opposition in the 2024 Democrat primary, while 29 percent preferred that he run unopposed. 26 percent of respondents were undecided.

Joe Biden was certified as the winner of New Hampshire in 2020 with 52.9 percent to Donald Trump’s 45.5 percent.

The survey is a stark contrast from July, when the same question found that 29 percent of Democrats wanted Biden to face a primary opponent, 38 percent wanted him to run unopposed. 33 percent were undecided.

Among all New Hampshire voters, only 33 percent have a positive view of Joe Biden, while 53 percent viewed him negatively. Kamala Harris fared worse: 24 percent said they have a positive view of her, while 55 percent view her unfavorably.

The consensus of likely voters in the Democrat primary is that if the election were held today, only 37 percent would vote for Biden.

The last incumbent president that lost a state in the primaries when their name was on the ballot was President Jimmy Carter in 1980, who was defeated later that year in a landslide election against then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan.

Biden handily lost the 2020 New Hampshire Democratic primary, coming behind to Sen. Bernie Sanders (25.6 percent), Mayor Pete Buttigieg (24.3 percent), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (19.7 percent), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (9.2 percent).

Amid Biden’s growing unpopularity in the Granite State, the 2022 New Hampshire U.S. Senate race is gearing up to be a competitive matchup between incumbent Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan and Republican Gov. Chris Sununu. Sununu, who has not announced his candidacy, leads Hassan 45 percent to 42 percent, according to a University of New Hampshire poll.

If this trend continues, President Donald Trump could be poised for a win in New Hampshire should he decide to run.

Appeals Court Rules Indiana Can Enforce Pro-Life Law Saving Babies From Abortion

Appeals Court Rules Indiana Can Enforce Pro-Life Law Saving Babies From Abortion

On Thursday, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc.’s petitions “for rehearing by the full court in a case alleging the complications reporting law is unconstitutionally vague,” according to Mary Anne Pazanowski of Bloomberg Law.
In so doing, the court upheld an August decision of a panel of the 7th District which overturned a permanent injunction that barred Indiana from enforcing the law which lists 25 complications that should be reported if they arose because of an abortion. Senate Enrolled Act 340 was passed by the Indiana state legislature and signed into law by Governor Eric Holcomb in 2018.
Far from “unconstitutionally vague,” SEA 340 is very specific in what must be reported. Those are
(1) Uterine perforation.(2) Cervical laceration.(3) Infection.(4) Vaginal bleeding that qualifies as a Grade 2 or higher adverse event according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE).(5) Pulmonary embolism.(6) Deep vein thrombosis.(7) Failure to terminate the pregnancy.(8) Incomplete abortion (retained tissue).(9) Pelvic inflammatory disease.(10) Missed ectopic pregnancy.(11) Cardiac arrest.(12) Respiratory arrest.(13) Renal failure.(14) Shock.(15) Amniotic fluid embolism.(16) Coma.(17) Placenta previa in subsequent pregnancies.(18) Pre-term delivery in subsequent pregnancies.(19) Free fluid in the abdomen.(20) Hemolytic reaction due to the administration of ABO-incompatible blood or blood products.(21) Hypoglycemia occurring while the patient is being treated at the abortion facility.(22) Allergic reaction to anesthesia or abortion inducing drugs.(23) Psychological complications, including depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, and sleeping disorders.(24) Death.(25) Any other adverse event as defined by criteria provided in the Food and Drug Administration Safety In-formation and Adverse Event Reporting Program.

Back in August, in upholding the statute, the three judge panel concluded, “It is understandable by persons of ordinary intelligence and not subject to arbitrary enforcement.”

Virginia Democrat Who Called Youngkin Anti-Semitic for Referencing Soros Received Thousands from Soros-Linked PACs

Virginia Democrat Who Called Youngkin Anti-Semitic for Referencing Soros Received Thousands from Soros-Linked PACs

Representative Elaine Luria, who slammed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin as being anti-Semitic for referencing George Soros, has received tens of thousands of dollars from Soros-linked PACs.
Glenn Youngkin, the Republican gubernatorial candidate for the upcoming election in Virginia, discussed this week the “present chaos” in Virginia schools, with parents standing up against school boards pushing anti-white critical race theory, and other leftist ideologies on children. Youngkin said the blame for this laid “squarely at the feet” of his opponent Terry McAuliffe, but also “George Soros-backed allies” in the “left liberal progressive movement, [who have] inserted political operatives into our school system disguised as school boards.”

Representative Elaine Luria, the Democrat who currently holds Virginia’s 2nd District in the US House, claimed that Youngkin was being anti-Semitic for even bringing up George Soros, despite his clear and obvious funding of leftist political actors.
“I call it out in my own party and I’m calling it out now,” Luria tweeted. “Evoking George Soros as a shadowy funder is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. This is an unacceptable statement from Glenn Youngkin.”

I call it out in my own party and I’m calling it out now. Evoking George Soros as a shadowy funder is an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. This is an unacceptable statement from Glenn Youngkin. https://t.co/KYs9G2JWOJ

— Elaine Luria (@ElaineLuriaVA) October 20, 2021

However, Matt Wolking, the Communications Director for Youngkin, pointed out that Luria had received tens of thousands of dollars from PACs linked to Soros.

Wolking higlighted that Soros himself gave $5,000 to PAC TO THE FUTURE, which later gave $5,000 to Luria’s campaign. For her 2018 campaign, Luria received “tens of thousands of dollars” from the SWING LEFT PAC, after Soros donated $50,000 to the organization.
Youngkin will face former Virginia Gov. and Clinton administration scandal-generator Terry McAuliffe this November to determine the state’s next governor.

In 2018, George Soros gave $50,000 to SWING LEFT which turned around and gave tens of thousands of dollars to Elaine Luria’s campaign. https://t.co/Si17KHhjzEhttps://t.co/GuqTGHXY1Y
— Matt Wolking (@MattWolking) October 21, 2021

“Elaine Luria uses her Jewish heritage like Democrats use blacks when they race bait,” said Jarome Bell, who is running for the Republican nomination as an America First candidate to challenge Luria in 2022.
“Typical Democrat. She’s a Soros puppet. Didn’t Soros help round up the jewels of the Jewish of the Holocaust with the Nazis?” Bell further added that Luria would “do anything to take an intelligent Black Conservative man down like my black life doesn’t matter.”
Bell had previously slammed Luria for joining the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 protests on Capitol Hill, telling National File she needs to be “investigated for treason and participating in a coup against the duly elected President of the United States,” and that “her participation on this committee shows she doesn’t represent the people, but only Nancy Pelosi and her puppet masters.”

Anti-Conscience Mandates are Forcing Doctors to Violate Their Religious Beliefs

Anti-Conscience Mandates are Forcing Doctors to Violate Their Religious Beliefs

Coercion is becoming ubiquitous in medicine. Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists who oppose morally contentions medical procedures are increasingly being forced to choose between remaining in their professions and violating their deepest-held religious beliefs.
Take the new “Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill of 2021” just passed in Queensland, Australia. The law authorizes doctors to kill terminally ill patients who ask to die. That’s bad enough. But it also requires conscientious objectors to become complicit in homicide by finding another doctor known to be willing to kill.
The euthanasia legalization law in Ontario, Canada similarly requires doctors to kill-or-refer patients who are legally qualified for euthanasia—which includes people with disabilities and soon will encompass the mentally ill and dementia patients.
When Catholic and other conscientiously opposed doctors sued to be exempted because the referral requirement violated their Charter rights to “freedom of religion and conscience,” a court ruled that their morality must take a back seat to the patient’s right to access legal medical treatments. If doctors don’t like it, the judge sniffed, they can get out of medicine.
The right not to participate in abortion is also under attack. Dr. Mark Hobart, a Catholic physician in Melbourne, Australia, ran afoul of a law requiring doctors to either abort or refer, when he refused to procure an abortionist for a patient seeking a sex selection abortion.
When the medical association found out about his act of conscience, Hobart was investigated and received a letter of formal caution—a black mark on his career and a warning to other doctors that they will be punished if they allow pro-life views to impact their professional lives.
LifeNews is now on GETTR. Please follow us for the latest pro-life news
Readers may think that these overseas restrictions have little to do with the us. Don’t you believe it.
“Medical conscience” as the issue is known, is also on the boil here with medical journals and the popular media ubiquitously attacking the right of doctors to say no to procedures with which they are morally opposed.
For example, Ezekiel Emanuel—perhaps the country’s most influential bioethicist—coauthored an advocacy article in the New England Journal of Medicine—the world’s most important medical journal—arguing that “to invoke conscientious objection is to reject the fundamental obligation of health care.” This specifically included abortion. So, according to Emanuel, if a doctor wants to deliver babies, she must also be willing to kill the unborn.
It’s not just theoretical advocacy in medical journals or California-style tantrum throwing. The Equality Act—which has passed the House of Representatives—seeks to obliterate existing medical conscience rights around abortion by transforming conscientious refusals into acts of sex discrimination.
Specifically, the bill redefines the term “sex” to include “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition.” It then bans “pregnancy discrimination” and requires that pregnancy “shall not receive less favorable treatment than other physical conditions.” Moreover, it would gut the right to refuse participation in abortion based on religious belief.
Put all of this together and refusing to perform an abortion becomes an act of discrimination based on sex against which a religious objection claim would no longer be a defense.
Another Democrat agenda item—the Do No Harm Act—would gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) by exempting the law from anti-discrimination statutes “if the exemption would impose the religious views, habits, or practices of one party upon another.”
A recent court ruling illustrates the importance of the RFRA to medical conscience protections. Last August, a federal judge granted a permanent injunction protecting a religious doctor from being penalized by a Biden administration anti-conscience regulation, ruling that “the current…regulatory scheme threatens to burden Christian Plaintiffs’ religious exercise…by placing substantial pressure” on the doctor “to perform and provide insurance coverage for gender-transition procedures and abortions.” But for the RFRA, that doctor’s medical conscience goose would already be well cooked.
Why resort to coercion when there are plenty of medical professionals willing to participate in controversial procedures?
I think there are three reasons: First, stifling medical conscience would be a triumph for secular progressive ideology that predominates in bioethics and among the medical intelligentsia.
Second, compelling doctors’ participation in contentious procedures would silence the moral message communicated when a doctor or nurse says, “No, I won’t do this. It is wrong.”
Third, obliterating medical conscience would allow political progressives to remove one of the few remaining cultural obstacles to their societal dominance.
There is a practical predicament posed by this issue as well. If we force healthcare professionals to violate their moral beliefs as the cost of licensure, the country could see a mass exodus from the field—just as we are seeing people quit their jobs over vaccine mandates.
At the very least, older doctors and nurses will retire when they might otherwise have continued working, taking their experience and knowledge with them. Most alarmingly, exceptional young people who would make splendid doctors, nurses, or pharmacists may avoid the healthcare field altogether.
Comity is essential to societal cohesion in our moral polyglot age. Medical conscience allows patients to obtain morally contentious procedures that they want, while permitting dissenting medical professionals to stay true to their own moral and religious beliefs.
Compelling doctors to hew to secular cultural values in their practice of medicine is both authoritarian and un-American. If the anti-medical conscience campaign succeeds, we will all be the poorer for it.

REPORT: DHS Paid $450K to Erect ‘Security’ Wall Around Joe Biden’s Delaware Beach House

REPORT: DHS Paid $450K to Erect ‘Security’ Wall Around Joe Biden’s Delaware Beach House

A report from the New York Post claims the Department of Homeland Security shelled-out more than $450,000 to erect “security” fencing around Joe Biden’s Delaware Beach House.
“The southern border with Mexico is seeing the highest levels of illegal border crossings in 35 years, but the Department of Homeland Security has found one access point it can shore up — doling out $455,000 to a Delaware construction company for a fence around President Biden’s ‘Summer White House,’” reports the Post.

“In September, the department awarded a contract of $456,548 to Turnstone Holdings LLC for ‘PURCHASE AND INSTALLATION OF SECURITY FENCING,’” adds the newspaper. “The contract started Sept. 21 and is expected to end Dec. 31. Construction of the fence is expected to end by that date.”
The report comes as the DHS confirmed more than 1.7 million foreign migrants were apprehended during fiscal year 2021, the highest figure since 1986.
CBP’s Rio Grande Valley sector came in with the most arrests, at 549,000 Border Patrol apprehensions. While the Del Rio sector had 259,000 apprehensions.
The crisis began earlier this year when Joe Biden ended Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy during his first week on the job.

Texas AG Ken Paxton sues Joe Biden: ‘Let’s Go Brandon, we’ll see you in court’

Texas AG Ken Paxton sues Joe Biden: ‘Let’s Go Brandon, we’ll see you in court’

Amid a challenging scenario with local, state, and federal officials struggling to contain the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, Attorneys General Ken Paxton and Eric Schmitt are taking legal action against the Biden administration.

While visiting the border city of El Paso on Thursday, the Texas and Missouri attorneys general announced during a press conference broadcasted by RSBN they have filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration for abruptly pausing border wall construction.

“We will be filing a lawsuit against the Biden administration as it relates to building this wall,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton confirmed.

“The fact that Congress appropriated large sums of money and directed that money be spent on the wall…our lawsuit is about forcing that expenditure to be spent the way Congress intended. The reason we care so much about this is that it is having tremendously negative effects on our states,” Paxton said.

“Let’s go Brandon, we’ll see you in court,” said the attorney general to a cheering crowd.

The AG revealed that $1.8 billion was appropriated to finish building the southern border wall. However, Joe Biden signed an executive order on his first day in office that authorized spending approximately $6 million taxpayer dollars every day to prevent the southern border wall from being constructed.

“We are very discouraged by the lack of care by the President. He has done almost everything he can do to make it more difficult for our border towns, our border states, and the entire U.S. as we’ve watched our immigration problem become a massive problem,” Paxton continued. “I would say it’s the direct result of policies that they knew would do exactly what they’re doing.”

In addition, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt warned that the humanitarian crisis is overwhelming existing resources and capacities, especially in Texas and Missouri, because of Biden’s failure to secure the border.

“The main reason we have this unprecedented surge in illegal immigration is the failure for him to build the wall that President Trump led on, that Congress appropriated money for,” Schmitt said.

Schmitt revealed that during he and Paxton’s “eye-opening” border tour, they saw what appeared to be border wall material that was rusting and rotting on the ground, “all for politics by Joe Biden.”

The Missouri AG also highlighted how the border crisis has affected his state as large upticks in human trafficking have taken a toll on Kansas City. All 50 states should care about what happens at the border, because anything that happens there, ultimately affects them all, according to Schmitt.

“All of the states are border states because of this unprecedented surge of illegal immigration that we have to stop, and we need to finish President Trump’s wall,” he said.

Border Patrol and other federal agencies are burdened with processing hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, yet the federal government has not taken action to alleviate them and halt the mass migration.

Despite the federal government’s lack of help, state and federal law enforcers continue apprehending as many illegal immigrants as possible, while also attempting to curb illegal drugs such as fentanyl from being smuggled through the southern border. They are clearly overwhelmed on all fronts, especially as another record-breaking surge of 400,000 migrants is expected in the coming weeks.

Although President Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy could be reinstated as soon as November, the new lawsuit seeks to continue border wall construction.

TRAIN WRECK: White House Forced to Clarify Multiple Statements Biden Made on CNN Town Hall

TRAIN WRECK: White House Forced to Clarify Multiple Statements Biden Made on CNN Town Hall

Several White House officials were dispatched Friday to clarify comments made during President Biden’s televised Town Hall event on a series of issues including the supply chain crisis and Taiwan.
When asked whether he would deploy the National Guard to drive trucks, the Chief Executive replied: “The answer is yes, if we can’t move to increase the number of truckers, which we’re in the process of doing.”

“We are not actively pursuing the use of the national guard on a federal level,” a White House official later told Fox News.
“China, Russia, and the rest of the world knows we have the most powerful military in the history of the world. Don’t worry about whether we’re going to – they’re going to be more powerful,” Biden said in the CNN town hall. “What you do have to worry about is whether or not they’re going to engage in activities that will put them in a position where they may make a serious mistake.”
“I just want to make China understand that we are not going to step back, we are not going to change any of our views,” Biden said.
“There is no change in our policy,” a White House spokesperson told Fox News. “The U.S. defense relationship with Taiwan is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act.”

An Open Letter to Mainstream Media: AT&T, Warner, CNN & Jeff Zucker

An Open Letter to Mainstream Media: AT&T, Warner, CNN & Jeff Zucker

By ROYCE WHITE
I: Benadryl
Recently I published a letter to Stephen A. Smith. Regarding the traitorous attack on Kyrie Irving and his resistance to vaccine mandates. Despite the adversarial nature of the letter, it started off with my accounting of a few existential questions. These questions were not directly explored in the contents of that letter, but asking them had aroused my curiosity. I did a lot of thinking about existence over the next few days. Then a question came to me in the middle of the night: If spacetime exists on a continuum, is it possible the inner voice we call conscience, is really our future selves speaking to us? You’re probably thinking — “Where is this going and what in God’s name does it have to do with AT&T?” Please be patient, I’m getting there. The question was sparked by a dream I’d been having that night. In this dream, a huge bomb had gone off. It wasn’t a blow up the street corner type of bomb; this was a full blown catastrophic event. In the dream I could actually feel the bomb’s heat and see it’s force, but strangely it never made a sound. After waking up and asking that question about spacetime, it dawned on me… The next great war has already begun. The first bombs already went off. And they too, didn’t make a sound.The next great war is one of information. We’re in it right here, right now. The silent bombs that dropped were cancel culture, censorship and quid pro quo’s. Not the fake kind you all tried to shove down our throats when Donald Trump was in office. These ones existed long before that, they are of your making. First, we must never forget or understate the significance of Dr. Li Wenliang. A Chinese ophthalmologist from Wuhan hospital, who sounded the first alarms about Covid in December of 2019. He was summoned by Wuhan police and told to stop making false claims about Covid on the internet. Dr. Li Wenliang was a hero and now he’s dead. He succumbed to the virus a month later at the age of 34. After his death, an official inquiry was done and he was exonerated by the Chinese government.Some people would use this tragic tale to reiterate the potential severity of Covid-19. Because Dr. Wenliang was only 34 years old, his death is certainly a potent example. However, I look at Dr. Wenliang’s story and see the danger of big government. I see the tendency for it to be arrogant and unjust. When government and politics become hegemonic toward public health and safety, you have serious trouble. Was Dr. Wenliang not a medical professional? Was he not a healthcare provider and scientist? What does the way he was treated really tell us? What does it tell us about the state of science, the role of government and the eminent danger of censorship?Before we go any deeper, I want to share that I’m recovering from being sick this past week. Which has given me the time to write this latest series of letters. As shocking as this may sound, it appears the common cold still exists. Who would’ve thought? I may not have believed it myself without the sore throat, cough, low grade fever, plus a few negative Covid, Strep and Influenza tests to tell me so. The natural immunity antibodies from my mid-August covid infection continue to hold up. Praise be to god. Having time to study and write has been fruitful, although resting at home is always a mixed bag. Not being able to train is frustrating for an athlete. It’s a sacrifice made in the interest of my team. I surely wouldn’t want to get anybody sick at the gym. There’s always a fight coming up, and training camps are tough enough without the complication of a respiratory virus. Remember before the pandemic, when people just fought through the common cold? Medicating the symptoms and going on about their regular routine? I can’t tell you how many times a teammate of mine has coughed, sniffled and sneezed their way through a practice. I’ve seen it on every basketball team I played for. Such was the norm and even celebrated as admirable before Covid-19. It was an unspoken testament of an athlete’s commitment and reliability. A new etiquette has hit me each morning as the alarm goes off. I have to remind myself — though only a common cold, it’d still be irresponsible to pass around. I think there’s an important nugget in there somewhere about cultural norms. Or I could just be high from the Benadryl. I’m okay with having a heightened viral conscience, but there are plenty of norms emerging from this pandemic I’m absolutely not okay with. Mainly that it’s open season on freedom.
II: War RoomTo frame the conversation properly, I have to go back to the earliest days of this pandemic and how they unfolded for me almost 2 years ago. It all started with one man; Steve Bannon. A person I had heard of and researched a little. I knew he always got a lot of flack from both sides of the political isle. In retrospect, that should’ve been my first signal to look deeper. One day in November 2019, my best friend forwarded me a PBS Frontline interview, “Zero Tolerance”. The initial takeaway was — once again the machine had misrepresented a man; shocker. At least PBS had the integrity to let him represent himself in a complete interview and not narrated soundbites. Bannon was more than grossly misrepresented in most places though. He was razor sharp on issues like economic elitism, career politicians, the rise of China, etc. I remember thinking to myself, “Now I know why they hate him.” I’m no stranger to being smart, bold and on the machine’s bad side. A few months later in January 2020, I was researching the Uyghur Genocide and came across the War Room YouTube channel. This channel was live streaming an episode called War Room Pandemic. Steve Bannon was the host.The show was gritty, off the cuff and had a resounding honesty to it. I knew Bannon was a legit thinker, but this was a whole different ballgame. He was basically doing breaking news. The episode was covering a coronavirus outbreak in a place I had never heard of called Wuhan. The Chinese government was reportedly enforcing lockdowns that had gone from 3 cities to 15 and reached an area of 50 million people. So much from this show ended up being true, I won’t go over it and instead just provide the link. The highlight of it for me, was an old saying that was modified by Bannon. It’s still etched in my memory — “You may not have an interest in the pandemic, but the pandemic surely has an interest in you.”After it was over, I went looking for a coronavirus story I surely had missed in the mainstream news. But every outlet was still talking about the virus in buried leads or nonchalance. After seeing the discord I began to watch War Room everyday. I had to keep watching. The information was so bold, controversial and real time, there were only two possible outcomes — Bannon be discredited in an embarrassing fashion or mainstream media delegitimized to the point of desperation. A desperation that would surely yield must see tv in short order. Something inside me said, this is going to be an issue that sets the stage for society’s next chapter. Over the month of February I tracked the developments of coronavirus through War Room and compared notes with the mainstream. Then in early to mid-March, the pandemic hit home. What was originally an outbreak of Covid-19, clustered on America’s coasts, had now spread across the entire country and reached Minnesota. Our first orders of shelter in place were emerging.It was surreal to see the situation escalate as it did from late January. I knew something was very wrong with the official narrative. That roller coaster had only just begun. To put it in perspective, Bannon’s show is called War Room Pandemic. The World Health Organization (WHO) didn’t even declare the outbreak a pandemic until March 11th, 2020. In late January US public health officials were saying the outbreak was not a threat to the average American citizen. Bannon rang the bell on this pandemic. Which the machine now parades as justification for new world order.
III: Red Pill BluesAfter being cornered into a trust fall with The State during shelter in place, one day everything changed. George Floyd was murdered and the world found itself on 38th and Chicago, in south Minneapolis. The nation saw civil unrest. The world saw civil unrest. Communities took to the streets. Covid-19 had taken a deep breath. People were upset, inhibition was thrown to the wind and the lockdown had come to a screeching halt.In the wake of Floyd’s murder, I led several of the largest peaceful demonstrations in Minneapolis. Looking back now, I’m certain people didn’t really understand what my organization was protesting. Even the people who participated in the demonstrations. As a speaker during public events and thought leader behind closed doors, I talked about corporatocracy, technocracy and the subsequent loss of sovereignty. The State’s monopoly on violence, delegitimized by corruption. The rule of law, undermined when lawmakers are so partisan and clearly owned by special interests. These were ideas I had already given much thought to and written about in my letter to LeBron James. A letter I had just finished in the summer of 2019, entitled, “Epistle to the King.” I understood the scope of governance had become too large and untenable. Whether it was a coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan or the decisions of a police officer in south Minneapolis — The State was overextended and naturally had become negligent. George Floyd was the chickens coming home to roost.In my letter to James, I also tried to convey the cultural importance of sports in America and an urgent need for athletes to lead a genuine movement. One where it’s leaders took real risks. Opposing Donald Trump hadn’t been a real risk. Actually, when doing a thorough audit, the riskiest social issues had been avoided. Namely China and The Uyghur Genocide, but more as well. Something had kept Black America gridlocked in perpetual turmoil.I condemned all the grandstanding from ineffectual Black figures and the persistent subversion of competent people like Fred Hampton or Malcom X. So when the time came, my mindset was already geared toward action. I knew my perspective could be useful during the uprisings. I knew strong people needed to contribute. What I found instead was a blindspot in my own worldview. The double edged sword of neoliberalism was much sharper than I had imagined.From my time being a renegade in the fight against the status quo, I had lost site of The People. They had become an ideal to me more than a firsthand experience. In the places I’d been advocating for Mental Health over the past 7 years, there wasn’t really any friction of ideology. Mental health was a bipartisan issue and as a spokesperson I was treated as such. It’s not that I didn’t know a real friction of political and social ideology existed — But where was it in real time? I saw what I needed to see, but really wish I hadn’t. The people showing up to protest and volunteer were woefully uneducated about institutions such as The Federal Reserve. Or they were apathetic toward the overall corporatization of politics and communities. Many screamed “the whole system is guilty”, but the overall spirit of revolt focused on policing and Donald Trump, as scapegoats for racial animus in America. Meanwhile the zeal for the LGBTQ and Me Too movement was palpable. It was so prevalent, many conversations on the ground at the time, carried their signature. Before long people were deviating from revolution altogether. Contention was often centered around which people should speak at what events, based on their identity. The circumstance of Black men like George Floyd became tertiary. Gossip and scrutiny about the sexual pasts of Black male leaders flooded the airways. It became a trojan horse to question the “safety” of women at demonstrations. Eventually there was a call to remove many Black men from participation altogether. Inclusion and intersectionality were coming up every other day. Once again resistance had devolved into reality TV. Not unlike the state of politics and political commentary.I understood exactly what was happening — The liberal machine had activated the purest form of racism there is. Rising up on the backs of Black people for it’s own political benefit. At the height of injustice, we were nothing more than propaganda. Black men had become commercialized hashtags; mascots. Black women were merely tokens of oppression. Both of which are very useful in the ongoing war of politics in America. I rejected this game and proclaimed that Black men must lead. For doing so I was called a sexist, misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, cisgender, toxic male. My response to these detractors was fuck off. Black men will rise up! Neoliberalism had tried to take a piss on George and I wasn’t having it.

Supreme Court Rules Texas Abortion Ban Can Keep Saving Babies From Abortions

Supreme Court Rules Texas Abortion Ban Can Keep Saving Babies From Abortions

The Supreme Court today refused a request by Joe Biden and abortion businesses in Texas to block the Texas abortion ban that has saved thousands of babies from aboritons.
The nation’s highest court agreed to review the pro-abortion lawsuits against the abortion ban and set oral arguments for November 1. That means the ban will stay in place for several more days — likely saving anywhere from 50-100 babies each day from abortions.
The court, in its order, said it would consider the following questions: whether “the state can insulate from federal-court review a law that prohibits the exercise of a constitutional right by delegating to the general public the authority to enforce that prohibition through civil action”; and can “the United States bring suit in federal court and obtain injunctive or declaratory relief against the State, state court judges, state court clerks, other state officials, or all private parties to prohibit S.B. 8 from being enforced.”
Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented and said the Texas abortion ban should be blocked while the lawsuit continues. She falsely called killing babies in abortions health care and made it appear that pregnant women are harmed if they can’t get abortions — even though abortion harms women in a myriad of ways and mothers who give birth experience more joy and less harm by keeping their baby.

“The promise of future adjudication offers cold comfort, however, for Texas women seeking abortion care, who are entitled to relief now,” she wrote. “These women will suffer personal harm from delaying their medical care, and as their pregnancies progress, they may even be unable to obtain abortion care altogether.”
The Supreme Court needs just 4 votes to agree to review a case but five votes to issues a ruling — meaning SCOTUS reached those two thresholds to both review as well as to decide to leave the Texas abortion ban in place. In a prior ruling on the Texas abortion companies’ request to block the ban, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to allow to to stay in place, with Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s three liberals dissenting and saying it should be blocked.
Yesterday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed legal papers with the Supreme Court urging it uphold the state’s abortion ban and deny Joe Biden’s demand that SCOTUS block it.
In its argument, Paxton and his team of attorneys say the federal government has no legal standing in the case and no right to overturn the Texas law because it hasn’t suffered any injuries from it:

Federal courts are not “roving commissions assigned to pass judgment on the validity of the Nation’s laws.”
The United States’ lawsuit against Texas is extraordinary in its breadth and consequence, having an impact on precedents that have existed far longer than any right to abortion has been recognized. Nevertheless, the federal government asks this Court to apply the “ad hoc nullification machine” that pushes aside any doctrine of constitutional law that stands in the way of abortion rights.
Specifically, it asks the Court to ignore (among other things) requirements of justiciability, standing, and a cognizable cause of action—all so that the Court can reach the merits of the government’s challenge to Texas’s Senate Bill 8 (SB 8). The Court should decline this request. Under binding case law, the federal government is not adverse to Texas merely because it thinks a Texas law is unconstitutional. And it lacks standing because it has not been injured by SB 8. The federal government cannot get an abortion, and the Constitution does not assign it any special role to protect any putative right to abortion.

Biden’s administration officially asked the Supreme Court to block the Texas abortion ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortions. Texas had until today to file its legal papers explaining why the Supreme Court should keep the abortion ban in place while the legal challenge proceeds and pro-life groups expect the nation’s highest court to not block the ban for a second time.

The Supreme Court previously ruled that it would not block the ban when it considered a similar request from abortion businesses.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz told LifeNews she expects Biden to lose his request to block the ban: “We are excited to continue saving hundreds of lives through the Texas Heartbeat Act. However, the battle is not finished. We are confident Texas will ultimately defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
As LifeNews.com reported late last week, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Biden’s demand to block the ban. Previously, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who was appointed by Barack Obama, sided with the Biden administration’s Justice Department, which sued the state, arguing Texas’ law was unconstitutional because it went against Roe v. Wade.
Then, the 5th Circuit rejected Biden’s demand, voting 2-1 to allow the ban to stay in place as the underlying lawsuit continues. That was the third time it has allowed the law to stay in effect, responding to various pro-abortion legal challenges.
Yesterday, Biden officials called the ban “plainly unconstitutional” even though no right to abortion exists in the Constitution.
“S.B. 8 is plainly unconstitutional under this Court’s precedents,” the DOJ’s filing reads. “Texas has not seriously argued otherwise.”
“Texas’s insistence that no party can bring a suit challenging S.B. 8 amounts to an assertion that the federal courts are powerless to halt the State’s ongoing nullification of federal law,” the DOJ wrote. “That proposition is as breathtaking as it is dangerous.”
Monday’s filing marks the second time that the Supreme Court will weigh in on blocking the ban temporarily. Last month, in a legal challenge from abortion businesses, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to not block the ban while the lawsuit continued. Texas has until Thursday to file its response to Biden’s legal papers.
In its previous ruling, the Supreme Court said the pro-abortion groups did not provide sufficient reasons to justify blocking the law.
“The applicants now before us have raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law at issue,” the majority wrote. “But their application also presents complex and novel antecedent procedural questions on which they have not carried their burden. … In light of such issues, we cannot say the applicants have met their burden to prevail in an injunction or stay application.”
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett made up the majority in the decision. The justices who dissented were Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor also wrote separate dissents slamming the court for allowing Texas to restrict abortions.
If the Supreme Court decides to not block the ban, it will likely stay in place until December, when the 5th Circuit has scheduled oral arguments on Biden’s request to block it. That means thousands more unborn children will be saved from aboritons, as many women decide to keep their baby instead of ending their child’s life. Meanwhile, pregnancy centers that provide actual help and support for pregnant women are also experiencing higher numbers of calls and visit and are saving more babies from abortion.
As soon as Judge Pitman issued his decision putting the ban on hold, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed.
“We disagree with the Court’s decision and have already taken steps to immediately appeal it to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals,” Paxton wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. “The sanctity of human life is, and will always be, a top priority for me.”
Typically, state governments enforce pro-life laws and, when the laws are challenged, judges can block the states from enforcing them in a preliminary injunction. However, the Texas law leaves enforcement up to individual people. So, judges are considering whether they can stop all private citizens from enforcing the law – especially without allowing private citizens the chance to defend themselves in court first.
Pitman’s order prohibited state court judges and court clerks from accepting lawsuits that the law allows. That made it so some abortion businesses continued killing babies in abortions while others worried they would still not be able to do so legally because the law, even if blocked, still allows lawsuits against anyone killing babies in abortions or assisting them.
Attorneys for Texas said Biden’s Department of Justice is being unfair by asking the court to block “absent third parties” from enforcing the law “without letting them be heard.”
The Texas law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Thus far, the courts have refused to temporarily block the law, and as many as 3,000 unborn babies already have been spared from abortion.
On Friday, attorneys for the Department of Justice argued that the law is unconstitutional and the federal government has an interest in seeing it blocked.
Then, Judge Pitman issued the ruling they were hoping for and endorsed abortion in the process.
“The United States is substantially likely to succeed on the merits of its claims. It is substantially likely that S.B. 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge wrote. “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution. That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”
In comments to LifeNews.com, Texas Right to Life blasted the opinion:

The ruling is wildly broad, preventing Texas state officials from enforcing the law, including the shocking order to block every Texas judge and court clerk from even receiving lawsuits filed by citizens against the abortion industry. The provision blocking lawmakers is entirely unnecessary since the language of the Texas Heartbeat Act already prohibits government officials from enforcing the policy. However, Pitman’s effort to obstruct state judges and court clerks from fulfilling their lawful duties is astonishing.
This is the legacy of Roe v. Wade: Judges catering to the abortion industry, crafting a conclusion first and then searching the depths of legal literature for a rationale later.
Pro-Life attorneys are likely to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals immediately, in which we expect a fair hearing.
Until a higher court intervenes, the disappointing reality is that Pitman’s ruling will likely stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from being enforced.

Texas Right to Life maintained that abortionists could still be sued for violating the abortion ban, despite the ruling.

However, even with this ruling, abortionists can still be held liable for any abortions they commit in violation of the law.
The Texas Heartbeat Act states that an individual being sued under the law cannot claim as an affirmative defense that they were acting under the protection of a court order that had since been reversed or overturned:
“Notwithstanding any other law, the following [is] not a defense to an action brought under this section… a defendant’s reliance on any court decision that has been overruled on appeal or by a subsequent court, even if that court decision had not been overruled when the defendant engaged in conduct that violates this subchapter;” (Section 171.208(e)(3), Texas Health and Safety Code)Thus, those who aid or abet abortions, even if currently permitted by this ruling, could eventually be sued for their actions today.

“Texas Right to Life is dedicated to holding the abortion industry accountable to the fullest extent possible under the law. We are confident that the Texas Heartbeat Act will ultimately withstand this legal challenge and succeed where other states’ heartbeat bills have not,” the pro-life group concluded.
The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List also commented to LifeNews on Judge Pitman’s decision.
“The people of Texas speaking through their state legislators acted to protect unborn children with beating hearts, who are as human as you and me,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Heartbeat Act is estimated to have saved more than 4,700 babies since it took effect over a month ago. Now an unelected judge has interfered with the clearly expressed will of Texans. For two generations, the U.S. Supreme Court has tied the hands of states to enact laws protecting unborn children and their mothers. It is time to restore this right to the people and update our laws.”
Judge Pitman’s ruling came roughly one month after the law went into effect on Sept. 1. The Supreme Court declined to block its enactment, leaving the law in place while litigation against it continues in lower courts.
“Texas has made clear it does not want to follow the Supreme Court‘s abortion precedents,” federal government attorney Brian Netter said during Friday’s hearing.
He asked the judge to issue an injunction blocking Texas and “all of its officers, employees and agents, including private parties” from suing abortionists who violate the law, CNN reports.
“The state resorted to an unprecedented scheme of vigilante justice that was designed to scare abortion providers and others who might help women exercise their constitutional rights, while skirting judicial review,” Netter said.
However, Will Thompson, an attorney representing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Office, told the judge that the federal government is using “inflammatory rhetoric” to attack the law, and the heartbeat law is not the only legislation that allows private enforcement.
“This is not some kind of vigilante scheme. It’s a scheme that uses the normal and lawful process,” Thompson said.
Netter contended that private citizens really are just acting for the state as a proxy to enforce the law. The judge asked Thompson about this claim.
Afterward, Texas Right to Life slammed the Biden administration’s arguments as “maniacal” and “entirely unprecedented.”
Kimberlyn Schwartz, director of media and communications, summarized the hearing: “Ultimately, the Justice Department is asking the court to toss out all logic and judicial precedent in order to cater to the abortion industry. The Biden administration’s case is desperate and far-fetched, and we expect an impartial court to declare the lawsuit without merit.”
The Biden administration has taken multiple actions to thwart Texas’s efforts to save unborn babies from abortion. Along with the lawsuit, it also set aside $10 million – taxpayers’ money – to provide grants to the abortion industry in Texas and make additional Title X family planning funds available.
In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.
While abortion activists say some women are traveling to other states for abortions, they admit that others are having their babies instead.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
Texas Right to Life encouraged women seeking pregnancy help to visit its website for a list of resources. Find it here.
Polls show Americans support heartbeat laws. An April poll by the University of Texas-Austin found that 49 percent of Texans support making abortions illegal after six weeks of pregnancy, while 41 percent oppose it. In 2019, a national Hill-HarrisX survey also found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. Whether the law will remain in effect or ultimately be upheld as constitutional in court remains uncertain, but pro-life leaders are hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority.

Russ Vought Sounds The Alarm On What’s In Massive Spending Bill

Russ Vought Sounds The Alarm On What’s In Massive Spending Bill

Russ Vought, President Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget, joins Steve Bannon to talk about the dangerous so-called Human Infrastructure bill that Joe Biden wants to use to transform America into a socialist state. Follow Russ at AmericaRenewing.com.
“They’re basically trying to to take $4 trillion and put it into a $2.5 trillion straitjacket. And they’re not really changing the programs that they’re creating… Let’s take an example. They want to create a dental program for Medicare. It’s just going to be a “pilot program” to save costs, but we know that the very next year they will come along and expand it because that will be unjust to the rest of the people on Medicare. Or they’ll try to take paid leave and take it from 12 weeks to four weeks, but they will expand it over time. All of this is to get the big camel’s nose under the tent and be able to get these things in place. Child tax credit expansion. One year instead of 10, but do you think Congress is gonna come along and say no to that the next year? Of course not.”

Two-Year-Old Girl Dies After Government Revokes Her Life Support Over Her Parents’ Wishes

Two-Year-Old Girl Dies After Government Revokes Her Life Support Over Her Parents’ Wishes

On Monday, Alta Fixsler passed away after the government of the United Kingdom sentenced her to death. She committed no crime or wrongdoing. She was just 2 years old, innocent as could be. But Alta suffered from a severe hypoxic ischemic brain injury.
Doctors at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Manchester, United Kingdom, concluded that Alta’s life was not worth living. Her parents, both devout Hasidic Jews, objected to the decision since their faith requires them to protect and uphold the dignity of every life.
But the government decided that it has the power to decide if Alta’s life was worth living. A British High Court ignored the Fixslers’ wishes and upheld the doctors’ decision. When Alta’s parents appealed to the European Court of Human Rights, it too upheld the decision.
The High Court showed a complete disregard for the Fixslers’ Jewish faith, insisting, “Alta is not of an age, nor in a condition to have knowledge of and to adopt her parents’ values.” Yet, according to Jewish culture, Alta was a member of the faith at conception. The government’s contempt for religious freedom and life itself is despicable.
And Alta did have a chance at life, just not in the United Kingdom. Both Israel and the United States offered to assess Alta’s state and provide treatment. Alta was not only a child of God; she was the daughter of an American citizen.
Her parents fought hard for relocation and secured a visa for Alta to come to the United States. But in an act of callousness, and for no discernible reason, the British and European courts denied her the opportunity to travel to America or Israel for continued care. Instead, they sentenced her to death.
The U.K.’s High Court of Justice was explicit, writing, “that there was a risk that, once [Alta] was transferred to Israel, the decision of the judge that her treatment should be withdrawn would be reversed, contrary to her best interests.” In other words, the court deemed living was not in her best interest.

The stunning statement demonstrates the incredible foresight of America’s founders. The Declaration of Independence asserts, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
We often take for granted in America that our rights come from God, not man. Unfortunately, that self-evident truth is under increasing attack here at home.
In New York, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that allowed abortion throughout the duration of a pregnancy, regardless of whether the fetus is viable outside of the womb. In Virginia, House Democrats proposed legislation allowing abortions right until the last minute of a pregnancy. When discussing the bill, Gov. Ralph Northam casually described how it would allow a newborn infant to die on the hospital table. He then realized he had to clean up his infanticide endorsing comment, so he clarified that this would only happen in the case of an abnormality. An abnormality, like in the case of Alta.
The days when the Democratic Party wanted abortion to be “safe, legal and rare” are long gone. Radical leftists now want abortion on demand without any restrictions. Yet, most Americans reject this kind of barbarism. In fact, just 13% support third trimester abortions.
I recognize that the abortion debate poses a serious dilemma; it puts the right of a woman to control her body in conflict with the right of her child to live. But I will always choose life. Not because it’s easy, but because it is right.
I pray that one day the right to life is respected throughout the world and extended to all of God’s people. And so I urge all Americans to stand for life. Not just for the unborn, but also for those at risk of losing theirs.
The United States was not given the chance to save Alta, but it can still save so many children like her: innocent, beautiful, full of God’s potential, but devalued in an often cruel and unsparing world.

CNN ratings continue to PLUMMET post-Trump

CNN ratings continue to PLUMMET post-Trump

CNN’s ratings have plunged since President Trump left office. The cable news network that ironically bills itself as the “most trusted name in news” is being badly beaten in the ratings by Fox News.

In addition to a loss of interest in the news following Trump’s January departure from the White House, CNN has been rocked by negative headlines ranging from host Chris Cuomo being accused of sexual assault by a former ABC News producer, to podcast star Joe Rogan’s accusation that the network lied about his taking of ivermectin – which they claimed was strictly used for veterinary care as a horse dewormer.

According to Fox News, “CNN’s total day viewer average has plummeted to 484,000, a distant third behind Fox News’ 1.4 million” from Oct. 1 through Oct. 15.

During the same time span, Fox News trounced CNN in primetime viewers as well. CNN averaged a paltry 729,000 viewers during weekday primetime coverage compared to Fox News’ 2.6 million viewers in primetime.

And the month of September wasn’t much better for the Atlanta-based network.

In September, CNN failed to reach one million viewers on any of its programs for 23 out of 30 days.

To put this in perspective, CNN averaged 950,000 viewers last September during the final weeks of the 2020 election. This September, the network only averaged 557,000, which is a 41 percent decline.

CNN’s viewership downturn can be traced back directly to the time President Trump flew to Mar-a-Lago following Joe Biden’s inauguration – something that Trump himself predicted.

“Newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there, because, without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,” Trump once said.

And here we are 10 months into the Biden administration and news outlets are indeed losing much of the audience and readership they gained during his time in the White House.

Back in March, the Daily Wire reported that “CNN averaged 2.5 million primetime viewers from Nov. 4, the day following the presidential election, through inauguration Day on Jan. 20.”

However, the day after Biden was sworn in, CNN’s ratings tanked.

From Jan. 21 through March 15, primetime viewers declined 36 percent. And viewership has only worsened for CNN since then.

Noting the media’s declining ratings, President Trump issued a statement in which he said that “CNN ratings are down 70%. MSDNC is also way down. Actually, they are ALL way down. They say the news is “boring” since I left D.C. Morning Joe, Joy Reid (whoever that is?), Nicole Wallace, Jake Tapper, and even Chris Wallace, at Fox, in free fall. A wonderful thing to see.”

“President Joe Biden’s approval rating slipped deeply underwater in the CNBC All-America Economic Survey as Americans soured on his economic leadership, lost some confidence in his handling of the coronavirus, and grew increasingly concerned about inflation and supply shortages,” reports the financial website.
“Just 41% of the public approve of Biden’s handling of the presidency, compared with 52% who disapprove. The poll of 800 Americans, conducted Oct. 14-17, has a margin of error of 3.5%,” adds the outlet.

Trial Set for Judicial Watch Challenge to California’s Gender Quota

Trial Set for Judicial Watch Challenge to California’s Gender Quota

October 22, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

“Judicial Watch is taking a stand against this crazed critical theory that is resulting in quota requirements in the state of California.”
When it comes to gender quotas, there really is no limit. Judicial Watch is now in court fighting a California state law “requiring boards of directors to have a certain number of women,” a policy which Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton states is “prohibited by the federal constitution but more specifically by the California Constitution.” As Fitton adds in the Judicial Watch Weekly Update, “the Left doesn’t care, they want to upend decades of law prohibiting discrimination to advance … their critical theory agenda.” “When you hear the Left say they’re against sex discrimination, that’s not true,” Fitton states. “They’re supporting discrimination in this law.”
Fitton says the California quota “shows you the insanity” of lawmakers who wish to “award benefits and mandate special treatment based on immutable characteristics, which is something we had all settled shouldn’t be done for over the last 50 years.”
“It’s outrageous discrimination,” Fitton continues. “The state of California tried to get our case thrown out. The court said no.”
On December 1, Judicial Watch lawyers are scheduled to go to trial to challenge the law on behalf of California taxpayers.
If you’re concerned about the government’s violations of law, support Judicial Watch today!

Mike Pence Calls on SCOTUS to Overturn Roe: “It is Our Hope and Prayer” to End Abortion

Mike Pence Calls on SCOTUS to Overturn Roe: “It is Our Hope and Prayer” to End Abortion

Vice President Mike Pence expressed strong hopes that the U.S. Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade in the coming months and “restore the sanctity of life” to unborn babies.
Pence spoke to European leaders recently about his hopes during the Budapest Demographic Summit, a conservative political conference in Hungary, ABC News reports.
He lamented the societal breakdown of the family, calling it “a crisis that strikes at the very heart of civilization itself.” Pence warned of “the erosion of the nuclear family marked by declining marriage rates, rising divorce, widespread abortion and plummeting birth rates.”
After praising the falling abortion rates in Hungary under conservative Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Pence said he hopes and prays that the same will happen in America, according to the report.
He pointed out that President Donald Trump appointed about 300 conservative judges to federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court refused to temporarily block a Texas pro-life law that is saving as many as 100 babies every day from abortion. Trump’s three appointees were part of the majority ruling.

“We may well have a fresh start in the cause of life in America,” Pence said. “It is our hope and our prayer that in the coming days, a new conservative majority on the Supreme Court of the United States will take action to restore the sanctity of life at the center of American law.”
On Dec. 1, the high court is scheduled to hear a major abortion case out of Mississippi, one that could erode Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.
The case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization involves the question of whether states may prohibit abortions on unborn babies before viability. Currently, Roe and a later abortion case, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, prohibit them from doing so.
In July, Pence and his organization Advancing American Freedom filed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to reject Roe and restore protections to unborn babies under the law.
“Forty-eight years ago, our Supreme Court turned away from the timeless ideal that we are ‘endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights that include, first among them, life,” Pence said at the time. “By calling for Roe and Casey to be overturned, Advancing American Freedom and its partners seek to protect the right to life and to restore respect for the sanctity of life. Life is winning in America, and we must not rest until we restore a culture of life in America.”
In 1973, the Supreme Court forced states to legalize abortion on demand when it ruled on Roe v. Wade. The ruling made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Since then, nearly 63 million unborn babies and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of mothers have been killed in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions in the U.S. Though abortion rates have been falling, nearly 1 million unborn babies continue to be aborted annually in the U.S.

WOW: Virginia's 1st Black governor, Democrat Doug Wilder RIPS Terry McAuliffe and Kamala Harris for politically targeting 300+ Black churches

L. Douglas Wilder has never been a fan of Terry McAuliffe’s second run for governor in the state of Virginia. While it’s not illegal for a governor to run more than once (they just can’t twice in a row), it has long been looked down upon by the community. Wilder, a Democrat who was also Virginia’s first and only Black governor, has also criticized McAuliffe for taking the opportunity from people of color (two of them women) and for refusing to answer questions.We’ve seen ol’ Terry bolt from interviews, run from reporters, and literally yell at a Virginia sheriff when he didn’t want to answer.It’s almost like Wilder knows the guy.Wilder has also taken issue with Kamala Harris politically targeting 300+ Black churches around Virginia to campaign for Terry. She recorded a video that will be played DURING SERVICES begging parishioners to vote for her friend, Terry.Pretty bad, right?Wilder called them both out:“If this is legal, then it’s surprising to me.” https://t.co/8jnm82PHYX— Conn Carroll (@conncarroll) October 22, 2021From The Washington Examiner:Douglas Wilder, the only black governor in Virginia’s history, is no fan of the video endorsement Vice President Kamala Harris made for Terry McAuliffe, which is being played Sundays in hundreds of the Old Dominion’s black churches.The ad, which ethics and legal experts say is a clear violation of IRS rules, is set to continue playing right up until the Nov. 2 gubernatorial election, as the Democratic Party pulls out all the stops to ensure black turnout. But a thumbs-down from the 90-year-old Wilder, a Democrat and highly respected voice in Virginia politics for decades, is significant.“Well, it’s very good for her to do that, causing these churches to lose their tax-exempt status,” he quipped, referring to the Johnson Amendment, a rule that prohibits 501(c)(3) organizations, such as charities and churches, from engaging in any political campaign activity. “If this is legal, then it’s surprising to me.”Yup.We can’t figure out how it’s legal either.Or ethical.But it is Clintonite Mcauliffe we’re talking about here so …***Related:Wait … WTF?!

HOW BIZARRE: Biden Oddly Talks About Himself in the Third Person, ‘Biden is a Simple Proposition’

President Biden continued to confuse countless Americans during his “invitation-only” Town Hall on CNN Thursday night; bizarrely referring to himself in the third person when responding to questions.

AFL BLASTS POLITICIZED BIDEN DOJ LAWSUIT AGAINST SB8; ASKS FOR THE OVERRULING OF ROE V. WADE

AFL BLASTS POLITICIZED BIDEN DOJ LAWSUIT AGAINST SB8; ASKS FOR THE OVERRULING OF ROE V. WADE

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, America First Legal (AFL) continued its momentous fight for the unborn, filing two legal briefs in the Supreme Court in defense of the unborn and SB8, the Texas Heartbeat Act.
The first brief opposes the Biden DOJ’s emergency application to vacate a stay entered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in United States v. Texas. In that case, the Biden DOJ is attempting to sue the State of Texas and enjoin it from enforcing the Texas Heartbeat Act, even though there is no law that allows the federal government to sue a state over its abortion laws. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit stayed a district-court decision that had unlawfully blocked the enforcement of the law, and the Biden Administration is seeking emergency relief from the Supreme Court. But the Biden DOJ’s lawsuit is meritless. Among other things, federal courts do not have the power to enjoin state courts from adjudicating cases, nor do they have the power to enjoin individuals who are not even parties to a case. The Biden DOJ’s lawsuit lacks any basis in law and the Supreme Court should deny their radical request.
The second brief is a conditional cross-petition in Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson, the same case in which the Supreme Court previously rejected a group of abortion providers’ attempt to enjoin the enforcement of SB8. Rather than trying litigating the case on the merits at the district court and appellate court levels, those same abortion providers are now asking the Supreme Court to take the extraordinary step of deciding the case on the merits before the lower courts rule. In the cross-petition, AFL asks the Supreme Court—if it grants the abortion advocates’ extraordinary request—to directly overrule Roe v. Wade, which invented a constitutional “right” to abort an unborn child despite the utter lack of any textual support in the Constitution for such a right.
Statement From America First Legal President Stephen Miller:
“America First Legal is a brand new organization and yet we are already trailblazing new paths at the United States Supreme Court to protect unborn children from abortion. The two historic Supreme Court briefs we filed today—one, dismantling DOJ’s assault on the Texas Heartbeat Act and two, a cross-petition in response to DOJ calling for SCOTUS to overturn Roe v. Wade—are monumental defenses of unborn life. AFL is filing each of these SCOTUS briefs as private  counsel in the Texas Heartbeat litigation,” Stephen Miller said.

Economy Pete Buttigieg Predicts More Supply Chain Problems Because Of Biden’s Economic Success — Here’s What The Experts Say Economic experts pushed back on the Biden administration’s claim that widespread supply chain issues in the U.S. were the result of its successful economic agenda. “Demand is up because income is up because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said during an interview Sunday. More than half of American adults said an item they recently shopped for was out of stock while 54% encountered the same issue online shopping, according to a Morning Consult survey published Friday. “This isn’t the first time that we’ve had increases in our shipment activity,” Casey Mulligan, former White House Council of Economic Advisers chief economist and a University of Chicago professor, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.

By now everyone knows the term “stagflation”, which means a stagnant economy and large inflation (price increases), the easiest comparison is Jimmy Carter economic program in the 1970’s.     What you are seeing here is a comparison of weekly wages for the third quarter (July, Aug, Sept) of this year, compared to the weekly average wages in 2020: Weekly wages went up a sum total of seven bucks [$7/1,000 = 0.7%] year over year.  THAT is ridiculously low.  However, worse yet look at all the categories of workers who saw an actual decline in wages.   This is not a decline in wage value, this is an actual decline in net wages earned.  WAGES HAVE DROPPED ! ♦ Now Factor Inflation – The inflation rate is stunning [Table 7 data Here].   Examples: Beef costs 20% more (year over year).  Bacon costs 20% more. Eggs cost 12% more. Peanut butter costs 10% more. Home heating oil costs 42% more.  Unleaded gasoline costs 43% more.  Natural gas costs 20% more.  Used cars are 24% more.

So far, it is not working. Biden announced on Wednesday of last week that the Port of Los Angeles has agreed to go to 24/7 operations. Essentially, this would mean allowing cargo owners to pick up goods between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m. “This is the first key step to moving our entire freight transportation and logistical supply chain nationwide to a 24/7 system,” Biden said. He added that it could be a “game changer.” After a week, the game is largely the same. There are a record number of container ships in the waters near the Port of LA and the Port of Long Beach, which together handle 40 percent of container traffic coming into the U.S.  The Port of Long Beach opened itself up to similar nighttime and weekend shifts a few weeks ago. The problem is that there have been no requests from cargo owners to use the red-eye shift at the Port of L.A., according to a person familiar with the operations of the port. It’s not clear if Long Beach has seen a pickup in demand for loading trucks during the 3 am. to 8 a.m. time slot.

I am the recipient of the email published seven days ago by the New York Post which showed a copy to Hunter Biden and Rob Walker. That email is genuine. According to Bobulinski, the use of the term “the Big Guy” in one such email was a direct reference to Joe Biden himself. Source: breitbart.com John Durham gears up against the Alfa Bank conspiracy   A new filing in the Michael Sussmann case has revealed the depth of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation. It doesn’t look good for former DNC lawyer (and former Perkins Coie partner) Sussmann or for the group that pushed the Alfa Bank/Trump hoax. Special Counsel Durham has filed an opposition to Michael Sussmann’s motion for a bill of particulars. (To summarize, Durham argues that the 27-page speaking indictment against Sussmann “more than adequately” informs him of the charges he is facing.) Read it here. What’s really notable about the motion is that Durham discloses the volumes of evidence to be produced to Sussmann and the number of entities and people Durham has subpoenaed. According to this latest filing, Special Counsel Durham has produced “more than 6,000 documents, comprising approximately 81,000 pages” to Sussmann. This includes “documents received in response to grand jury subpoenas issued to fifteen separate individuals, entities, and organizations – including among others, political organizations, a university, university researchers, an investigative firm, and numerous companies.” Let’s decipher that last sentence. Who has received a subpoena from Durham? “Political organizations” likely refer to the DNC and the Hillary Clinton Campaign/Hillary for America. “A university” = Georgia Tech. “University Researchers” = the team involved in the Alfa Bank/Trump hoax. “An investigative firm” = Fusion GPS. “Numerous companies” = the companies involved with Rodney Joffe (named Tech Executive-1 in the Sussmann indictment). E-mail records from Joffe, the research group, and Sussmann/Perkins Coie. Perkins Coie billing records. Perkins Coie records (notes, etc.) relating to calls and meetings re: Alfa Bank. Grand jury testimony. And that’s just on the Alfa Bank issue. (Durham apparently remains focused on the broader FISA issues as well as other matters.) The filing also notes that Durham is “working expeditiously to declassify large volumes of materials to provide to the defense.” This includes: But there’s still more. Durham states after the production of these records, “the government expects to produce additional materials in subsequent productions, which will include additional interview memoranda, emails, and other records.” Why this matters. We anticipate that Durham is gearing-up to charge the group that created and pushed the Trump/Alfa Bank hoax. This is based on the volume of information Durham possesses on this issue, which reflects substantial expenditures of time and energy and resources to put all this together. In other words, you don’t call the grand jury on this issue – and pursue this matter this far – if the Alfa Bank researchers acted properly. But if we are correct that the Alfa Bank researchers acted improperly ­– if the Trump/Alfa Bank data was manipulated – exactly how did they do it? An Ankura report from 2020 has thoughts on what went down: This theory of manipulating the data is consistent with the communications revealed in the Sussmann indictment, where a member of the Alfa Bank “research” team explained that it would be possible to: “fill out a sales form on two websites, faking the other company’s email address in each form,” and thereby cause them “to appear to communicate with each other in DNS.” It also puts into context the August 22, 2016 observation from Researcher-1: “How do we plan to defend against the criticism that this is not spoofed [] traffic we are observing? There is no answer to that.” If this is the case, then Sussmann faces more serious legal consequences than a simple false statement charge. He didn’t just take their information to the FBI and later to the CIA. Instead, it was Sussmann who spent long hours drafting the “white paper” that summarized and explained the purported Trump/Alfa Bank links. This white paper was produced to FBI General Counsel Baker on September 19, 2016.  And it was Sussmann who provided “new details concerning the [Alfa Bank] allegations” to the CIA in February 2017. Details that ultimately proved false. This leads to the potential for potential obstruction (18 USC 1503) or conspiracy charges. As we have stated, for some of this group (Joffe and some of the Georgia Tech researchers) there might be charges relating to the misuse of classified government data from DARPA. Reconsidering CrowdStrike. I leave you with one last thought. Aaron Mate has a great piece over at RCP discussing the history of DNC lawyers from Perkins Coie – Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias – in furthering the allegations, made through CrowdStrike, that Russians hacked the DNC. For background, Crowdstrike was retained by Perkins Coie on May 2, 2016 on behalf of their client, the DNC (and really the Hillary Clinton campaign) to assist Perkins Coie in “providing legal advice or related legal services to Firm Clients [DNC/Hillary].” What event triggered the retention of CrowdStrike? In late April 2016, the DNC noticed suspicious behavior on its network. They contacted Sussmann at Perkins Coie, who then got the help of old friend Shawn Henry at Crowdstrike. “Within the day, the CrowdStrike team concluded that the intruders were Russian government operatives.” In light of Michael Sussmann’s indictment and the apparent attempt by those working on behalf of the DNC to push the false Alfa Bank hoax on the FBI – consider whether the deception started earlier. There have long been suspicions of CrowdStrike as being the entity that manipulated data showing Russians allegedly hacked the DNC/Clinton servers and extracted the e-mails. What if Crowdstrike was a patsy, there to unknowingly reach false conclusions of a “Russian hack” based on information provided to them by Perkins Coie and the DNC?

It’s not surprising but it’s… frankly one of the reasons last year I increased our intelligence spending on China by 20 percent. “Our intelligence very clearly told us that there are discrete areas — hypersonics was one of them — where we didn’t know exactly where the Chinese were, but we were afraid that they were ahead of us in terms of hypersonic technologies.” “China [is] attempting to dominate us economically, technologically, and militarily,” Ratcliffe warned, “and this is all part of why I called for increased spending on China and why there has to be a greater focus and influence on this, going forward.” Ratcliffe’s points out that the, U.S. currently has 14 ballistic missile submarines, each of which carries a maximum of 20 missiles with multiple, independently-targeted warheads.

Ebright  posted a letter from the National Institute of Health (NIH) showing that an NIH grant did fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, contrary to what Dr. Anthony Fauci had testified to the Senate. Fauci testified to Senators at a hearing in May that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” However, the NIH’s October 20 letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer (R-KY) showed that the NIH grant, which was awarded to EcoHealth Alliance and then sub-awarded to the Wuhan lab, funded a research project during 2018 and 2019 that tested “if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model.” The letter added: “In this limited experiment, laboratory mice infected with the SHC014 WIV1 bat coronavirus became sicker than those infected with the WIV1 bat coronavirus.” According to the Department of Health and Human Services, “gain-of-function” research is research that improves the ability of a pathogen to cause disease. Ebright tweeted that in the letter, the NIH “corrects untruthful assertions by NIH Director Collins and NIAID Director Fauci that NIH had not funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan.” Source: breitbart.com Guess who is responsible for millions of deaths around the world? 1105 Q !xowAT4Z3VQ ID: 28003e No.967390Apr 9 2018 12:12:03 (EST) CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS ARE VERY EFFECTIVE.2 BILLION PEOPLE.GLOBAL.SCALE.REGULATION OR KILL?PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE.Q AG Merrick Garland Admits Federal War On Parents Sprang From School Boards Letter, Not Evidence Attorney General Merrick Garland admitted that the basis for targeting and potentially charging parents concerned about what their children are learning in schools with domestic terrorism was a letter from the National School Boards Association, not real evidence. “When did you first review the data showing this so-called disturbing uptick?” Ohio Rep.

She is the granddaughter of Samuel Rosenman, a judge at the New York Supreme Court who had served as Special Advisor to Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman. In the Times’ announcement, it provides the background that Lynn Garland worked for E-Systems, which specializes in electronic and information warfare.  E-Systems, a defense contractor based out of New Jersey, has quite the shadowy profile. This is how the Washington Post described the firm in 1994, when it still did actual journalism: If Big Brother ever took control of the United States, E-Systems Inc. would surely be its prime contractor. Consider: * E-Systems designs spy satellite gear that can snap photographs of automobile license plates from space and capture electronic communications, from phone calls to rocket telemetry. * E-Systems software can analyze those spy satellite photos to see if anything has changed — a Russian tank moved or an Iraqi missile site built — since the last shots were taken. * E-Systems can build “electronic fences” to police borders. It helped build one such network of sensors to monitor drug traffickers along the U.S. border with Mexico, and the company says it hopes to build a more sophisticated one for Saudi Arabia. * And E-Systems hardware can help federal drug enforcement agencies track cocaine planes and tap drug dealers’ telephones. “In short, E-Systems’ technologies, part of the central nervous system for the nation’s intelligence community, are regarded as brilliant by intelligence agencies and Wall Street,” WaPo added. Lynn Garland would go on to work with the Election Verification Network, which describes itself as a network of professionals who consult on elections (she is listed as a member on the EVN website): It should come as no surprise, then, that Merrick Garland’s wife was deeply involved in the 2020 election debacle, and his son-in-law is cashing in on American schools’ disgraceful Critical Race Theory agenda.

Maricopa County continues to dodge this question but the Senate auditors have acquired photographic evidence of this activity and the user who did it. Cyber Ninjas reports, 1.9.4 LOGMANAGEMENT The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors stated the following in response to the Audit report concerning the County’s failure to preserve the operating logs on the EMS server “The system automatically logs all actions taken on the equipment. These logs are configured according to factory settings and have a storage limit of 20 megabytes.” This statement ignores the crux of the finding. 1.9.4.1 FAILURE TO PROPERLY RETAIN LOGGED DATA Maricopa county had full administrative authorities over the configuration and maintenance of the logging functions and the log retention duration operations. To claim that the reason the log data was not retained because the log size default setting was only 20MB is disingenuous at best when the county had the full control to properly modify this setting to ensure that the logged data was properly retained. The retention period for these log artifacts should have been for twenty-two (22) months but wasn’t. 1.9.4.2 INTENTIONAL EXECUTION OF SCRIPTS TO DELIBERATELY ENSURE THAT LOG ENTRIES WERE NOT RETAINED The response by Maricopa County does not address the fact that a user leveraging the emsadmin account deliberately and purposely executed a script that checked the accounts for duplicate passwords 38,478 times. This deliberate execution of the script occurred over three days, specifically on 2/11/2021 there were 462 log entries overwritten, on 3/3/2021 there were 37,686 log entries overwritten, and on 4/12/2021 there were 330 log entries overwritten. Given that the Maricopa County knew that the setting on the log retention was limited to 20MB, the act of executing these scripts had the effect of deliberated ensuring that the Windows security logs covering the dates of the general election would not be available for review.

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Voters Oppose Transgender, Gender Neutral Bathrooms in Public Schools

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Voters Oppose Transgender, Gender Neutral Bathrooms in Public Schools

With less than two weeks to go before Election Day, public education and the culture wars are at the forefront of the race for the next governor of Virginia. A new CD Media Big Data Poll finds voters in the Old Dominion overwhelmingly oppose a slew of Democratic policies, to include transgender participation in sports, the use of locker rooms and bathrooms, as well as “gender neutral” bathrooms.

Voters in Virginia were asked to “tell us whether you support or oppose each of the following public school policies pertaining to transgender students.” When it comes to allowing transgender students to participate “on sports teams alongside the gender they identify with, such as biological males identifying as female joining a biological female soccer team, or visa-versa,” 52.2% of voters say they oppose the policy and only 29% support it.

The Daily Wire first reported that officials at Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) appeared to cover up a sexual assault in order to preserve the policy of “gender neutral” bathrooms on campuses. On May 28, a 15-year old biological male sexually assaulted a 9th grade biological female in a gender neutral bathroom. Meanwhile, voters opposed that policy 48.3% to 38.9% even though only 44.8% indicated they were aware of the recent reports.

Republican Glenn Youngkin, who is currently locked in a dead heat against Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the upcoming gubernatorial election, “called for an immediate investigation into the Loudoun County School Board for endangering our students and violating the Virginia Constitution.”

“When I’m governor, we’re going to take immediate action in regards to our kids’ safety,” he tweeted. “Our kids cannot wait.”

Mr. McAuliffe has made some missteps on the issue of public education, which was cited as a top voting issue by respondents in the survey. Following a debate gaffe, The Daily Wire exclusively obtained footage showing Mr. McAuliffe evading a reporter peppering him about Loudoun County prosecutor Buta Biberaj, who campaigned with the Democratic candidate earlier this month. An obviously startled Mr. McAuliffe asked the reporter whether she was “vaccinated” as he avoided questions.

Parental voters with children 18 and older were the least likely to support the policy, as 46.1% “strongly” opposed it and another 11.2% opposed it. Parents with school-aged children were also more likely to oppose the policy than voters without children of any age, at all.

Voters also oppose transgender students competing for sports scholarships against the gender they identify with, such as biological males identifying as female competing against biological females for a track-and-field scholarship, by a wide 54.8% to 25.9% margin.

When asked if they supported or opposed transgender students using locker and bathroom facilities with the gender they identify with, such as biological males identifying as female sharing locker rooms and bathrooms with biological female students, 53.5% opposed it and only 28.8% supported it.

Lastly, the CD Media Big Data Poll in Virginia asked voters which came closer to their view on education. The widely accepted view of Critical Race Theory—or, the idea “children should be taught that the only way to overcome racism is to acknowledge U.S. society, laws and institutions are inherently racist and some are disadvantaged no matter what they do”—was chosen by just 21.9%.

The idea that “children should be taught to be merit-based, racially color blind and capable of being whomever if they work hard, not that they are disadvantaged based on the color of their skin” was chosen by two-thirds of voters (66.1%).

The CD Media Big Data Poll in Virginia was sponsored by CD Media and conducted by Big Data Poll, interviewing 1,061 likely voters statewide via online survey panel from October 16 to October 20, 2021. The survey sampling error is ± 3.0% at a 95% confidence interval. Results were weighted to represent statewide voter file demographics to include gender, age, race and region. The partisan breakdown of the survey was 35.6% Democratic, 34.4% Republican, 22.8% Independent and 7.2% Other. It’s important to note that sampling errors for subgroups are higher.

WASHINGTON, DC — The National File has reported that evidence it received suggests that the FBI under former director Robert Mueller staged a hoax in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge.
Despite several questions and contradictory information, the 2010 case is now being used as a precedent to prosecute a protester who was at the Capitol building on Jan. 6 of this year.
EXCLUSIVE: ROBERT MUELLER INVESTIGATED FOR STAGING MILITIA HOAX USED TO PROSECUTE JAN 6 DEFENDANT. HERE’S THE EVIDENCEhttps://t.co/4lEgNT4XtX— Patrick Howley (@HowleyReporter) October 20, 2021
According to National File’s Patrick Howley, the FBI staged a hoax in Madisonville, Tennessee in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge. The man who was allegedly framed was Darren Wesley Huff.
Howley reported that evidence suggests that Mueller’s FBI completely invented the details of an alleged militia attempt to take over a courthouse in Tennessee that supposedly involved Huff.
Howley wrote:
“One of Mueller’s top deputies is alleged to have provided a false statement that contradicts numerous other sworn statements and evidence in the case.
“The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) opened an investigation into Mueller’s conduct, according to documented evidence presented below and in audio recordings obtained by NATIONAL FILE in which a witness in the case speaks to TBI investigators.
“Mueller’s FBI coordinated on the takedown of Huff with the left-wing ‘Fogbow’ activist organization led by a leftist named PJ Foggy, who wears a hammer and sickle hat, according to PJ Foggy’s admissions.”
Robert Mueller is officially being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for framing a man on gun related charges.Swampy Bob fraudulently prosecuted Darren Huff in 2010, for “carrying a firearm in interstate commerce w/ intent to use it in a civil disorder”— No1 Suspicious (@No1_Suspicious) October 21, 2018
In June, The Washington Post reported that a three-judge panel ruled, upholding the 2011 conviction at trial of Huff, who was found guilty of bringing an AK-47 rife, Colt .45-caliber handgun and 300 rounds of ammunition and trying to rally others to take over a Tennessee courthouse after a grand jury wouldn’t charge President Barack Obama with treason.
However, Howley provided copies of two affidavits. One stated that Huff left his weapons in his vehicle, and the other stated he never went to the courthouse.
Howley noted that The Washington Post wrote that the prosecution of Huff was now being used to prosecute Guy Reffitt, who attended this year’s Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol building and has been charged under the firearm provision of the rioting statute.
https://t.co/K9vUinfpU0— Terry 💉💉 (@BusterBlackJet) October 2, 2021
The Washington Post reported:
“U.S. prosecutors for the first time have charged a defendant in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach with violating a federal law that makes it a crime to transport a firearm or explosive for unlawful use in a riot.
“The rare weapons charge was handed up Wednesday in a five-count superseding indictment against Guy Wesley Reffitt, 48, who prosecutors say brought a rifle and semiautomatic handgun to Washington and recruited members to a right-wing Texas Three Percenters group claiming he had created a new security business to circumvent gun laws.”
The Washington Post also reported that prosecutors in court filings said Reffitt brought an AR-15 rifle and a Smith & Wesson on his trip and that he was recorded telling his family he carried them to the Capitol.
Reffitt’s attorney, William L. Welch, had argued in an unsuccessful hearing for bond on May 13 that his client harmed no one and that there were no government recordings or photographs showing he was armed at the Capitol.
Furthermore, the attorney pointed out that no police officers mentioned Reffitt having a weapon, and he had not been charged with weapons offenses.
Howley reported that there is a “big problem” with prosecutors using the Huff case as precedent in prosecuting Reffitt:
“It turns out, according to massive evidence including eyewitness sworn affidavits and photographic evidence provided to this outlet, Darren Wesley Huff never actually tried to take over the courthouse in Tennessee, and Robert Mueller’s FBI allegedly fabricated the case.”
Walter Fitzpatrick, a witness in the Huff case, told National File the case against Huff was fabricated and that this fabrication is now being used against Reffitt:
“The DOJ/FBI are using a DOJ/FBI manufactured domestic terrorist hoax gun charge conviction as precedent to target Mr. Guy Reffitt for prosecution on a gun charge regarding Mr. Reffitt’s attendance at the U.S. Capitol rally on 6 January 2021.
“The federal precedent results from the DOJ/FBI targeting Mr. Darren Wesley Huff in 2010 accusing Navy Veteran Huff of traveling from Georgia to Tennessee on 20 April 2010 to a trailer park courthouse in Madisonville, Tennessee.
“The federal accusation accuses of traveling across state lines with guns with intent to riot. It’s all an FBI manufactured hoax.
“Mr. Huff was never at the courthouse. The 12 or so other men Van Balen talks about are ghosts. No one at the courthouse on 20 April 2010 was armed, saving for law enforcement officials.”
Howley reported that at the time, Fitzpatrick was calling for then-President Barack Obama to be investigated.
Fitzpatrick was accused of attempting to make citizens arrests of local officials who refused to investigate Obama, prompting Huff and others to come to his defense in Madisonville.

Huff was ultimately convicted of one count and acquitted of another, though the jury initially came back hung.
Fitzpatrick told National File:
“The FBI under Mueller declared his anticipated activity on 20 April 2010 a federal police emergency. Their law enforcement presence is the stuff of legend around East Tennessee.
“Hundreds of officers, many in camo, snipers on roofs and in windows, roadblocks into and out of Madisonville, helos (plural) airborne, pixelated pole cameras.”
Howley included footage of a traffic stop of Huff on April 20, 2010, who he said “never actually went to the courthouse.” The footage was allegedly taken by Carl Swenson. The video includes commentary by Huff, who says he was pulled over for failing to stop completely at a stop sign.
In the video, Huff says guns were drawn on him. Five police vehicles are seen in the video. Huff also says various police agencies, including SWAT personnel, state troopers and sheriff’s deputies, were at the traffic stop.
Huff said police disarmed him and then asked permission to search his pickup truck for explosives, but he did not consent.
Huff also said an officer had requested to hold his weapon until the event in Madisonville was done, but he did not consent to this request either and was later released from the traffic stop with a warning ticket regarding his failure to come to a complete stop.
Howley included a photograph of attendees at the courthouse protest and wrote:
“No one was arrested on the date in question. Huff was arrested 10 days later on April 30 after he was pulled over on Interstate 35 based on a warrant stemming from a federal affidavit from Mueller henchman Mark Van Balen that witnesses claim is fabricated.
“Van Balen’s affidavit is dated April 26, six days after the protest.
“A photo of the crowd of protesters outside the courthouse that day shows women and children, and clearly shows that Huff did not lead a band of 12 armed men to take over the courthouse.
“Huff is not in the photograph because he was not at the courthouse. In fact, Darren Wesley Huff was at a restaurant during the peaceful protest.”
Van Balen claimed in his affidavit:
“HUFF had traveled interstate with one or more weapons to accomplish his planned takeover of a courthouse and/or arrests of persons together with more than three persons.”
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation opened an “investigative case file” on Mueller’s conduct, according to a 2018 document that Howley provided in his article.
Fitzpatrick had talked with TBI investigators about the case, as documented on audio recordings, according to Howley.
Howley also provided a copy of a 2013 sworn affidavit by Huff’s companion, William R. Looman, who stated that neither he nor Huff “were ever located at the R. Beecher Witt Government/Judicial Building, 405 Tellico Street, Madisonville, Tennessee at any time on Tuesday, April 20, 2010.”
In another sworn affidavit from 2013, John Ivens attested he saw no one other than law enforcement with weapons in the vicinity of the courthouse and “heard no derogatory comments about the government or anyone involved in this situation that would have caused alarm in anyone.”
At the conclusion of his article, Howley includes a copy of blogger PJ Foggy allegedly admitting in writing his involvement in getting a huge police presence to come to Madisonville.
Foggy allegedly wrote:
“We’re the ones who got more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick, when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse.”
Howley points out that since Van Balen’s affidavit contradicts other sworn affidavits and evidence that National File received regarding Huff, the 2010 case should not be used as precedent to go after another U.S. citizen in 2021 due to the contradictions and questions it brings up.

WASHINGTON, DC — The National File has reported that evidence it received suggests that the FBI under former director Robert Mueller staged a hoax in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge.
Despite several questions and contradictory information, the 2010 case is now being used as a precedent to prosecute a protester who was at the Capitol building on Jan. 6 of this year.
EXCLUSIVE: ROBERT MUELLER INVESTIGATED FOR STAGING MILITIA HOAX USED TO PROSECUTE JAN 6 DEFENDANT. HERE’S THE EVIDENCEhttps://t.co/4lEgNT4XtX— Patrick Howley (@HowleyReporter) October 20, 2021
According to National File’s Patrick Howley, the FBI staged a hoax in Madisonville, Tennessee in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge. The man who was allegedly framed was Darren Wesley Huff.
Howley reported that evidence suggests that Mueller’s FBI completely invented the details of an alleged militia attempt to take over a courthouse in Tennessee that supposedly involved Huff.
Howley wrote:
“One of Mueller’s top deputies is alleged to have provided a false statement that contradicts numerous other sworn statements and evidence in the case.
“The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) opened an investigation into Mueller’s conduct, according to documented evidence presented below and in audio recordings obtained by NATIONAL FILE in which a witness in the case speaks to TBI investigators.
“Mueller’s FBI coordinated on the takedown of Huff with the left-wing ‘Fogbow’ activist organization led by a leftist named PJ Foggy, who wears a hammer and sickle hat, according to PJ Foggy’s admissions.”
Robert Mueller is officially being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for framing a man on gun related charges.Swampy Bob fraudulently prosecuted Darren Huff in 2010, for “carrying a firearm in interstate commerce w/ intent to use it in a civil disorder”— No1 Suspicious (@No1_Suspicious) October 21, 2018
In June, The Washington Post reported that a three-judge panel ruled, upholding the 2011 conviction at trial of Huff, who was found guilty of bringing an AK-47 rife, Colt .45-caliber handgun and 300 rounds of ammunition and trying to rally others to take over a Tennessee courthouse after a grand jury wouldn’t charge President Barack Obama with treason.
However, Howley provided copies of two affidavits. One stated that Huff left his weapons in his vehicle, and the other stated he never went to the courthouse.
Howley noted that The Washington Post wrote that the prosecution of Huff was now being used to prosecute Guy Reffitt, who attended this year’s Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol building and has been charged under the firearm provision of the rioting statute.

The Washington Post reported:
“U.S. prosecutors for the first time have charged a defendant in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach with violating a federal law that makes it a crime to transport a firearm or explosive for unlawful use in a riot.
“The rare weapons charge was handed up Wednesday in a five-count superseding indictment against Guy Wesley Reffitt, 48, who prosecutors say brought a rifle and semiautomatic handgun to Washington and recruited members to a right-wing Texas Three Percenters group claiming he had created a new security business to circumvent gun laws.”
The Washington Post also reported that prosecutors in court filings said Reffitt brought an AR-15 rifle and a Smith & Wesson on his trip and that he was recorded telling his family he carried them to the Capitol.
Reffitt’s attorney, William L. Welch, had argued in an unsuccessful hearing for bond on May 13 that his client harmed no one and that there were no government recordings or photographs showing he was armed at the Capitol.
Furthermore, the attorney pointed out that no police officers mentioned Reffitt having a weapon, and he had not been charged with weapons offenses.
Howley reported that there is a “big problem” with prosecutors using the Huff case as precedent in prosecuting Reffitt:
“It turns out, according to massive evidence including eyewitness sworn affidavits and photographic evidence provided to this outlet, Darren Wesley Huff never actually tried to take over the courthouse in Tennessee, and Robert Mueller’s FBI allegedly fabricated the case.”
Walter Fitzpatrick, a witness in the Huff case, told National File the case against Huff was fabricated and that this fabrication is now being used against Reffitt:
“The DOJ/FBI are using a DOJ/FBI manufactured domestic terrorist hoax gun charge conviction as precedent to target Mr. Guy Reffitt for prosecution on a gun charge regarding Mr. Reffitt’s attendance at the U.S. Capitol rally on 6 January 2021.
“The federal precedent results from the DOJ/FBI targeting Mr. Darren Wesley Huff in 2010 accusing Navy Veteran Huff of traveling from Georgia to Tennessee on 20 April 2010 to a trailer park courthouse in Madisonville, Tennessee.
“The federal accusation accuses of traveling across state lines with guns with intent to riot. It’s all an FBI manufactured hoax.
“Mr. Huff was never at the courthouse. The 12 or so other men Van Balen talks about are ghosts. No one at the courthouse on 20 April 2010 was armed, saving for law enforcement officials.”
Howley reported that at the time, Fitzpatrick was calling for then-President Barack Obama to be investigated.
Fitzpatrick was accused of attempting to make citizens arrests of local officials who refused to investigate Obama, prompting Huff and others to come to his defense in Madisonville.

Huff was ultimately convicted of one count and acquitted of another, though the jury initially came back hung.
Fitzpatrick told National File:
“The FBI under Mueller declared his anticipated activity on 20 April 2010 a federal police emergency. Their law enforcement presence is the stuff of legend around East Tennessee.
“Hundreds of officers, many in camo, snipers on roofs and in windows, roadblocks into and out of Madisonville, helos (plural) airborne, pixelated pole cameras.”
Howley included footage of a traffic stop of Huff on April 20, 2010, who he said “never actually went to the courthouse.” The footage was allegedly taken by Carl Swenson. The video includes commentary by Huff, who says he was pulled over for failing to stop completely at a stop sign.
In the video, Huff says guns were drawn on him. Five police vehicles are seen in the video. Huff also says various police agencies, including SWAT personnel, state troopers and sheriff’s deputies, were at the traffic stop.
Huff said police disarmed him and then asked permission to search his pickup truck for explosives, but he did not consent.
Huff also said an officer had requested to hold his weapon until the event in Madisonville was done, but he did not consent to this request either and was later released from the traffic stop with a warning ticket regarding his failure to come to a complete stop.
Howley included a photograph of attendees at the courthouse protest and wrote:
“No one was arrested on the date in question. Huff was arrested 10 days later on April 30 after he was pulled over on Interstate 35 based on a warrant stemming from a federal affidavit from Mueller henchman Mark Van Balen that witnesses claim is fabricated.
“Van Balen’s affidavit is dated April 26, six days after the protest.
“A photo of the crowd of protesters outside the courthouse that day shows women and children, and clearly shows that Huff did not lead a band of 12 armed men to take over the courthouse.
“Huff is not in the photograph because he was not at the courthouse. In fact, Darren Wesley Huff was at a restaurant during the peaceful protest.”
Van Balen claimed in his affidavit:
“HUFF had traveled interstate with one or more weapons to accomplish his planned takeover of a courthouse and/or arrests of persons together with more than three persons.”
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation opened an “investigative case file” on Mueller’s conduct, according to a 2018 document that Howley provided in his article.
Fitzpatrick had talked with TBI investigators about the case, as documented on audio recordings, according to Howley.
Howley also provided a copy of a 2013 sworn affidavit by Huff’s companion, William R. Looman, who stated that neither he nor Huff “were ever located at the R. Beecher Witt Government/Judicial Building, 405 Tellico Street, Madisonville, Tennessee at any time on Tuesday, April 20, 2010.”
In another sworn affidavit from 2013, John Ivens attested he saw no one other than law enforcement with weapons in the vicinity of the courthouse and “heard no derogatory comments about the government or anyone involved in this situation that would have caused alarm in anyone.”
At the conclusion of his article, Howley includes a copy of blogger PJ Foggy allegedly admitting in writing his involvement in getting a huge police presence to come to Madisonville.
Foggy allegedly wrote:
“We’re the ones who got more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick, when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse.”
Howley points out that since Van Balen’s affidavit contradicts other sworn affidavits and evidence that National File received regarding Huff, the 2010 case should not be used as precedent to go after another U.S. citizen in 2021 due to the contradictions and questions it brings up.

Biden Destroys American Exceptionalism

Biden Destroys American Exceptionalism

By BORIS EPSHTEYN
Thanks to four years of strength and prosperity under President Donald Trump, on January 20th of 2021 America was booming and poised to thrive for the next decade and beyond.
Even a worldwide pandemic struggled to truly slow America’s success.
However, through disastrous policies and childish mistakes, the Biden administration has destroyed our economic trajectory and tarnished our country’s reputation throughout the world.
Whether at home or abroad, people have long looked at the United States as the flagbearer of freedom and hope. My family immigrated to the U.S. from Russia in 1993 for that very reason. We wanted to escape the deep anti–Semitism of post-Soviet Russia while yearning for a fresh start and a chance to live the American dream.
I am so thankful for the opportunities this great country provided us and am truly troubled by the fact that America no longer has that winning air of promise and achievement that encouraged my family to pick up and move our lives across continents to be here.
In the span of only nine months, feckless Joe Biden and his administration have wreaked havoc on America’s institutions and have done much to destroy the shining, strutting city on a hill that President Trump handed to them.
President Trump gave us all the tools needed for long-term prosperity and peace even through uncertain times. All the Biden administration had to do was not mess it up.
Nevertheless, Joe Biden and his cronies just couldn’t help themselves despite President Trump paving them a road of success.
Joe Biden’s lack of leadership and ineptitude to carry America forward are causing a full scale economic and national security collapse. We have a border crisis with unvetted foreign nationals coming into the United States by the hundreds of thousands each month. Gas prices are at their highest in seven years – and that is after the Biden administration canceled the Keystone XL oil pipeline earlier this year. Unfortunately, those issues are just the start of Joe Biden’s colossal failures in handling domestic affairs. On the foreign stage, just the unmitigated, historic, epic fail in Afghanistan is enough to entrench Joe Biden as the worst leader in American history.
The excessive spending of Joe Biden and his Democrat comrades has caused inflation to soar. Americans are struggling to pay their bills and support their families. If Biden gets his way, Democrats will soon add trillions more dollars to the national debt in an effort to drastically remake America in their woke left-wing image. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Biden administration’s failures have led to historic supply chain failures that have left store shelves and cupboards empty. Americans are not able to buy basic products and are struggling as a result.
While gas prices soar, supply chains collapse, and air travel is in total disarray, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been on a months-long paternity leave at the expense of us, the American taxpayers.
Let’s be clear, a transportation crisis created our country’s supply chain catastrophe, and Joe Biden’s leading transportation official, as inept as he is when present, was missing in action when our country needed leadership most. Apples don’t appear to fall too far from the tree of clueless Biden in the current administration.
Joe Biden and his so-called team have failed America at every opportunity, and they don’t appear interested in changing course – or even showing up to work.
I vividly remember the feelings of awe and even disbelief we had in coming from post–communist Russia in the early 1990s, where shelves were empty and supply chains were shot, and experiencing the abundance of America. That abundance has been demolished by Biden, Buttigieg, and the rest of the Democrat gang of failures.
As an immigrant who has had the tremendous privilege of living the American dream, I am ashamed of how the current administration has tarnished America’s standing and legacy.
I only hope that our great nation can survive however long Joe Biden has left in the Oval Office.

Supreme Court Orders Maine to Respond to 2,000 Christian Health Care Workers Opposing COVID Mandate

Supreme Court Orders Maine to Respond to 2,000 Christian Health Care Workers Opposing COVID Mandate

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has ordered Governor Janet Mills, health officials of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and five of Maine’s largest hospital systems to respond by Monday, October 25, to Liberty Counsel’s request for immediate relief for health care workers until it decides to review the case.
Liberty Counsel will also file the petition for writ of certiorari on behalf of more than 2,000 Maine health care workers asking the High Court to review the case since there is now a split in the circuits, with the First Circuit (governing Maine) denying injunctive relief and the Second Circuit (governing New York), granting injunctive relief regarding virtually identical factual and legal issues. The governors of both states issued executive orders mandating that all health care workers get the COVID shots. They further stated that there would be no religious exemptions considered even though federal law protecting the sincerely held religious beliefs of employees preempts state law.
Governor Mills has threatened to revoke the licenses of all health care employers who fail to mandate that all employees receive the COVID-19 injection, despite the unconstitutional fact that she is discriminating against religious employees who decline vaccination while favoring those who decline for secular, medical reasons. The governor originally stated health care workers must receive a COVID-19 injection by October 1 and then extended the deadline for compliance to October 29. However, this required that plaintiffs had to accept the first injection that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs by no later than Friday, October 15, 2021.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “We are pleased that the state of Maine has been ordered to respond to our emergency request for relief on behalf of over 2,000 healthcare workers. Gov. Janet Mills cannot nullify federal law and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

Earlier this week, Breyer rejected an emergency appeal from thousands of Christian health care workers in Maine, who are opposed to Governor Janet Mills’ mandate that they get the COVID vaccine or be fired from their jobs.
More than 2,000 health care workers filed suit against Governor Janet Mills, health officials of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and five of Maine’s largest hospital systems.
Breyer denied the emergency injunction pending appeal (IPA) without prejudice. He made clear the denial was “without prejudice” and that the request could be refiled if the First Circuit Court of Appeals denies relief or if the First Circuit does not rule by October 29.
Mills’ executive order purports to override both Title VII employment law and the First Amendment Free Exercise clause. Her discriminatory order mandates the shots and states health care workers cannot raise religious exemptions claims. Her mandate requires that health care workers get the COVID vaccine by October 29 or lose their jobs.
As AP reports, “The opponents’ underlying case challenging the mandate will now go forward before the appellate court in Boston. In denying the emergency motion, Breyer said that Liberty Counsel, the organization that sued Mills over the vaccine mandate on behalf of health care workers who have religious objections to it, may seek an emergency injunction again if the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules in the state’s favor or does not issue a decision by Oct. 29.”
“A three-judge panel in Boston on Friday rejected a similar emergency motion that appealed the ruling of a federal judge in Maine who declined to halt the vaccine mandate. But the appellate court fast-tracked the case so that a detailed ruling could be issued before the enforcement deadline in 10 days,” it added.
On August 12, 2021, Governor Mills announced that Maine will require health care workers to accept or receive one of the three, currently available COVID-19 shots to remain employed in the healthcare profession. This edict would force numerous doctors, nurses, medical professionals, and other health care workers to choose between the exercise of their sincerely held religious beliefs and their employment. Governor Mills and state officials explicitly and illegally claim that federal law does not apply to health care workers in Maine and that no protections or considerations will be given to their religious beliefs. The governor originally stated they must receive a COVID-19 injection by October 1 and has now extended the deadline for compliance to October 29.
Gov. Mills has threatened to revoke the licenses of all health care employers who fail to mandate that all employees receive the COVID-19 injection, despite the unconstitutional fact that she is discriminating against religious employees who decline vaccination while favoring those who decline for secular, medical reasons.

For example, there is discriminatory treatment between federal employees and other health care workers in Maine. The Department of Veterans Affairs at the VA Maine Healthcare System in Augusta “permits and freely grants exemptions and accommodations to healthcare employees with sincerely held religious objections to mandatory vaccinations.” Employees are merely required to check a box requesting a religious exemption and are granted accommodation.
On the other hand, one health care worker is employed at the federal VA facility and was given a religious accommodation. However, this same employee was also a per diem employee at Eastport Memorial Nursing Home where she requested a religious accommodation and was denied and discriminatorily fired. Ironically, these two facilities are located nine miles apart. Therefore, according to Maine’s governor, somewhere along that route the law seems to disappear.
Accommodations for patient-facing health care workers with sincerely held religious objections to the shots cannot mean one thing in most states and not in the vast majority of Maine. This is evident with employers granting accommodations to health care employees in Oregon, California, Washington, New Mexico, Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Florida. These health care providers include top education and research hospitals such as University of Colorado, University of Chicago, University of Maryland, Temple University; some of the largest health care providers in the nation including Kaiser Permanente, Trinity Health, and Advocate Aurora Healthcare with hundreds of thousands of employees providing patient-facing care and accommodating the subset of those with sincere religious beliefs; and mid-size and smaller health care providers that have also readily accommodated patient-facing personnel with sincere religious beliefs.
In addition, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act clearly requires that every employer with over 15 employees must provide religious accommodations “unless an employer demonstrates that he is unable to reasonably accommodate an employee’s or prospective employee’s religious observance or practice without undue hardship.” For months, health care employees have worked every day with reasonable accommodations and history underscores that the state and the employers can continue to provide accommodations.
On September 14, the Northern District Court of New York granted a temporary restraining order for all health care workers against the state’s unconstitutional attempt to ignore federal law and remove religious exemptions and accommodations from unlawful COVID shot mandates for health care workers. Governor Mills’ mandate is identical to New York’s in its removal of religious accommodations, and its fate should be the same.

Democrats Push ERA That Would Create Right to Kill Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

Democrats Push ERA That Would Create Right to Kill Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

In their ongoing push to enshrine a so-called “right” to abortion on demand in the U.S. Constitution, House Democrats today will hold a hearing advocating removal of the long-expired deadline to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
The hearing comes as U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced nine appropriations bills without longstanding Hyde protections earlier this week. The Hyde Amendment and its family of pro-life riders stop taxpayer funded abortion at home and abroad and have saved millions of American lives.
House Democrats voted in March to remove the ERA deadline. SBA List denounced the vote and announced that votes on the legislation would be scored and double-weighted in each member’s profile on the National Pro-life Scorecard.
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser slammed the hearing, saying:

“Democrats in Washington will stop at nothing to expand abortion on demand, paid for by taxpayers, up to birth – even trying to revive the Equal Rights Amendment after its ratification deadline expired decades ago. Democrats’ push to bring back the ERA has little to do with empowering women and everything to do with enshrining a ‘right’ to abortion – the greatest human rights violation of our time – in the U.S. Constitution. As written, the ERA would indefinitely block state and federal policies that protect unborn children as well as their mothers. It ought to be called the ‘Abortion Rights Amendment.’

“American women have achieved historic gains as abortion rates have declined to their lowest point in fifty years. In 2021, no mother need be forced to choose between her dreams and her children’s lives. We thank our pro-life allies in Congress, especially Reps. Yvette Herrell, Ralph Norman, and Andrew Clyde for standing up to the extreme Pelosi-Biden agenda, which is a political liability with the strong majority of Americans.”

In January of 2020, the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel published a decisive opinion stating that the 1972 ERA has expired and that new efforts to ratify it would be considered null and void. Then in 2021, an Obama-appointed federal district judge concurred that recent attempts to ratify the ERA by Nevada (2017), Illinois (2018), and Virginia (2020) have no legal effect and do not count towards the required three-fourths states needed to ratify the constitutional amendment.

TOUGH CROWD! Biden Preps for CNN’s ‘Invitation-Only’ Town Hall as Agenda Falls Apart

TOUGH CROWD! Biden Preps for CNN’s ‘Invitation-Only’ Town Hall as Agenda Falls Apart

Joe Biden raised eyebrows across the country this week when CNN confirmed their televised town hall with the President will feature questions from an “invitation-only audience.”
“President Biden is set to participate in a CNN town hall in Baltimore this week where he will face questions from an ‘invitation-only audience’ — as his administration juggles uniting the Democratic Party, a worsening border crisis and supply-chain bottlenecks creating empty shelves and threatening the on-time arrival of holiday gifts,” reports the New York Post.

“Late last week, Democrats in the Senate were reportedly getting frustrated with Biden over his ongoing negotiations with Sens. Joe Machin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), which are stalling the passage of two key pieces of legislation — a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a massive spending package — that make up the core of his agenda,” adds the newspaper.
Biden faced growing criticism in recent weeks for refusing to take questions from the press after a series of addresses on the economy and COVID.

Judicial Watch: Records Reveal Coordinated Effort to Advance Critical Race Theory Initiatives in Loudoun County

Judicial Watch: Records Reveal Coordinated Effort to Advance Critical Race Theory Initiatives in Loudoun County

October 21, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received 3,597 pages of records from Loudoun County, VA, that reveal a coordinated effort to advance Critical Race Theory initiatives in Loudoun County public schools despite widespread public opposition.
The records were produced in accordance with two Judicial Watch Virginia Freedom of Information Act (VFOIA) requests to Loudoun County Public Schools. In March and April 2021 requests, Judicial Watch asked for communications between Loudoun County Superintendents Eric Williams and/or Scott Ziegler with school board members, teachers and parents regarding anti-racism initiatives, including a proposed speech code.
On March 27 at 2:19 a.m., Minority Student Achievement Advisory Committee (MSAAC) Chair Keaira Jennings writes to former Director of Equity Lottie Spurlock and others that she tweeted “we will silence the opposition … without realizing the firestorm my words would cause … My intention was and is to have the voices in support of equity in education be heard and supported, and I was actually thinking ‘hopefully those voice will eventually ring louder and drown out those against equity.’”
On March 29, 2021, Jennings writes about distributing a MSAAC a “call to action” in hopes the Loudoun NAACP will join in taking steps against the “false narratives” of “the opposition:”
As you are aware there is a lot of negativity and false narratives being circulated in the community and news regarding equity within LCPS. I think it best to not engage the opposition but rather counter them and drown out their hateful rhetoric. I am attaching a copy of the call to action that MSAAC put out this morning in hopes that the NAACP will join us in taking these or similar steps. Later this afternoon, I plan to also submit a letter formally to the school board asking that they take specific actions items, recognizing that the censure of [School Board Member] John Beatty is not legal for them currently.
On January 11, 2021, Loudoun County School Board Member Atoosa Reaser writes Ziegler an email about legislation moving in the Virginia legislature under the subject line, “Bill Tracking > HB1904 > 2021 session” (H.B. 1904 passed and was signed into law by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. The new law requires cultural competency for teacher licenses.):
This is the bill that’s going to encompass one of our program’s asks. It will be carried by someone outside of Loudoun, and is more comprehensive. I believe it encompasses what we were asking for and am OK with that path forward. Please let me know this morning if you have other thoughts.
Ziegler responds:
That looks good. Once the bill is passed, it will be interesting to see how the training and rubrics are built and promulgated around the [cultural competency] requirement. That will be where the real work starts.
On March 18, 2021, the African American Superintendent’s Advisory Council issued “Recommendations on Equity,” which includes among numerous other recommendations:
Establishment [of] a single indicator or composite score related to school climate that includes indicators related to antiracism and culturally responsive and inclusive learning environments
[A] requirement for educator preparation programs to include programs of study and experiences that prepare teachers to be culturally responsive educators.
Karen Dawson, executive assistant to the superintendent’s office asks a several public school officials to distribute the recommendations to their staff members.
Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Ashley F. Ellis responds: “We already have a head start with so many of these things.”
Ziegler responds to Slevin and Director of Communications and Community Engagement Joan Sahgren: “I wonder if and how this information can be included in our communications.”
On December 7, 2020, in an email chain regarding a memorandum of understanding between the school board and the sheriff’s office, Spurlock writes to school and law enforcement officials about an upcoming panel discussion regarding “rules of engagement for the community conversation.”
On December 11, Katrecia Nolen, principal and owner of KAPAX Solutions, a management and IT consulting services company, writes:
Data shows that our children are disproportionately referred to law enforcement in Loudoun County and these factors should inform the MOU [memorandum of understanding] review process.
I understand that there were a number of community comments and questions submitted, when will we have access to this community-derived information?
In a March 19, 2021, message to the public school community Ziegler attempts to address concerns regarding “Rumors Concerning LCPS Equity Work” by attempting to draw a distinction between Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT):
The professional development offered to LCPS employees explores issues that have traditionally been ignored in professional development. It asks employees to examine their own personal biases and how they might affect student instruction and interactions with the community. Concepts such as white supremacy and systemic racism are discussed during professional development. LCPS has not adopted Critical Race Theory as a framework for staff to adhere to.
On March 23, Ellis writes about Ziegler’s distinction between Critical Race Theory and Culturally Responsive Teaching:
As we’ve stated in committee meetings and messages to the community, LCPS is not teaching CRT (Critical Race Theory), nor have our staff been trained in Critical Race Theory …
***
Information related to countywide training for equity was shared with the LCPS School board on September 22…. Additionally, the Department of Instruction has created a frequently-asked-questions document related to Equity and Culturally Responsive Instruction.
The acronym “CRT” might sometimes be confused with Culturally Responsive Teaching.  As you know from C&I meetings this year, we do have a Culturally Responsive Framework that was developed this past year and is being utilized in our schools. Again, this is not Critical Race Theory.
In a March 2, 2021, email, Ziegler invites senior staff to a Zoom meeting facilitated by Virginia Commonwealth University: “Topic: Equity and Culturally Responsive Leadership: Racial Equity: What’s Race Got to Do With It? Dr. Cole and Dr Stanley.” Drs. Cole and Stanley work in the Office of Strategic Engagement for VCU.
In early April 2021, Public Information Officer Wayde B. Byard engages in a conversation with Loudoun Now editor Norman Styer, whom Byard characterizes in an April 5 email to Zeigler, Ellis and Spurlock as “friendly.” Byard writes, “This editor has been friendly to us in the past. In our phone conversation, he said he wanted to ‘cut through the crazy’ and give an honest account of what LCPS is doing.”
In a January 26, 2020, email, Beth Barts writes to then-Superintendent Williams and other school officials informing them about a closed meeting by the Equity Committee, after it was leaked the Committee was considering a rule that would require parents to take equity training before they would be allowed to access their child’s “parentvue,” a mobile application designed to help parents monitor their child’s academic activity. Barts writes:
I would lie [sic] to draw your attention to the social media rumors that the equity committee is going to require parents to take equity training before they are allowed to access their child’s parentvue. There is some outrage building.
I realize this is not exactly accurate and was just a suggestion, but I wanted to make sure you all were aware.
“Loudon County is the center of the storm on CRT and these documents show school district officials were obsessed with pushing, often dishonestly, the CRT agenda, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Judicial Watch recently made public a training document it received from a whistleblower in the Westerly School District of Rhode Island, which details how Westerly Public Schools are using teachers to push critical race theory in classrooms. The training course was assembled by the left-leaning Highlander Institute and cites quotes from Bettina Love, from whom the Biden administration distanced itself publicly after her statements equating “whiteness” to oppression.
In May, Judicial Watch obtained heavily redacted records from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) including documents related to their “Anti-racist system audit” and critical race theory classes. The documents, obtained under the Maryland Public Information Act, reveal that students of “Maryland’s Largest School District” who attended Thomas Pyle Middle School’s social justice class were taught that the phrase “Make America Great Again” was an example of “covert white supremacy.” The phrase is ranked on a pyramid just below “lynching,” “hate crimes,” “the N-word” and “racial slurs.” They were also taught that “white privilege” means being favored by school authorities and having a positive relationship with the police.
In June, Judicial Watch uncovered records from Wellesley Public Schools in Massachusetts that confirm the use of “affinity spaces” that divided students and staff based on race as a priority and objective of the school district’s “diversity, equity and inclusion” plan. The school district also admitted that between September 1, 2020 and May 17, 2021, it created “five distinct” segregated spaces.
In February, Judicial Watch filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of David Flynn, the father of two Dedham Public School students, who was removed from his position as head football coach after exercising his right as a citizen to raise concerns about his daughter’s seventh-grade history class curriculum being changed to include biased coursework on politics, race, gender equality, and diversity. You can watch a Judicial Watch video presentation on the Flynn case here.

Kentucky Legislator Plans Major Pro-Life Bill to Save Babies From Abortion

Kentucky Legislator Plans Major Pro-Life Bill to Save Babies From Abortion

Kentucky state Rep. Nancy Tate, R-Brandenburg, is working on a massive pro-life bill for 2022 to protect the health and safety of mothers and their unborn babies.
Tate outlined plans for her Humanity in Healthcare Act on Wednesday during a joint legislative committee meeting, Kentucky Today reports.
Her plans include adding new safety regulations for abortion drugs, ensuring parents have the ability to consent before an underage daughter has an abortion, expanding conscience protections for pro-life employees and more.
Addia Wuchner, executive director of Kentucky Right to Life, praised Tate’s plans during the meeting.
“Reflected in this piece of legislation is good healthcare (and) good medicine, addressing many areas,” Wuchner said.
One of Tate’s proposed measures would make sure the abortion industry reports botched abortions and other complications as well as the distribution of abortion drugs, according to the report. Some abortion groups now are selling abortion drugs by mail without ever seeing the woman in person.

Here’s more from the Lexington Herald Leader:

Just over half of abortions performed in Kentucky last year were non-surgical, meaning patients who got an abortion did so with medication. The bill takes aim at this type of procedure by adding a series of oversight measures to track the distribution of such pills, first by creating an abortion-inducing drug certification program, which would require “all distributors, manufacturers, and physicians to become certified before handling aborting-inducing drugs.” Tate said it “would be very unfortunate for individuals to receive mail-order medication and not to receive advice from their doctors. They need to understand what the implications are.”

She also plans to add information about the abortion pill reversal treatment to the state informed consent requirements.
Tate said her goal is to protect the health and safety of both mothers and their unborn babies.
In addition, Tate’s legislation would make sure that parents are involved when an underage girl wants an abortion. Kentucky already has a parental consent law, but her bill would close loopholes that abortion activists use to skirt the requirement.
“It is very important for us to make sure that these children have parental consent before they [make] such a life-altering medical decision,” Tate said, according to the Herald Leader. In public schools, “we don’t even want our children taking aspirin without parental consent.”
The current state law allows underage girls to request a judge’s permission for an abortion, rather than her parents’. Tate’s bill would add a requirement that the courts base their decision on “clear and convincing evidence” that the underage girl is mature enough to understand the impact of her decision, the Courier Journal reports. Courts also would be required to report the number of requests that they granted and the reason for each.
Other parts of her bill would apply conscience protections to pro-life workers beyond the medical field and require abortion facilities to bury or cremate the remains of aborted babies.
“As a human baby, it should not be treated as medical waste,” Tate said.
She plans to introduce the legislation in the 2022 legislative session. Republicans have a super-majority in the state legislature, enough to override vetoes by pro-abortion Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear.
The state health department reported 4,104 abortions in 2020.

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Gubernatorial Election Dead Even At 47%

CD Media/Big Data Poll: Virginia Gubernatorial Election Dead Even At 47%

Image by Glenn Youngkin, Terry McAuliffe

A new CD Media Big Data Poll finds the Virginia gubernatorial election between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin dead even at 47% among likely voters. The most important voting issues, the president’s waning approval rating, and a clear Republican enthusiasm edge have made the election for the next governor in the Old Dominion a toss-up.

Mr. Youngkin is offsetting a slight disadvantage among base crossover (4% vs.7%) with a roughly 10-point lead among independents and third-party voters, 48.3% to 38.0%. In 2017, then-Republican nominee Ed Gillespie only carried this group by just under 3 points.

“Democrats wanted this election to be about the pandemic, Medicaid expansion and other healthcare-related issues,” Big Data Poll Director Rich Baris noted. “But concern over the pandemic response and healthcare have taken a backseat to pocketbook issues and public education.”

When asked, voters cited the economy and jobs (25.5%) and cost of living/taxes/inflation (17.4%) as the two issues most important to their vote for governor this year. While coronavirus/vaccinations were cited by a combined 15.2% of voters, public education was closely behind at 14.0%.

When the state leaned Republican, Virginia had a long voting history of electing a governor from a party not in the White House during a president’s first term. Joe Biden won the state 54% to 44% last November, and now a significant percentage of his voters disapprove of the job he’s doing as president.

Only 45% of voters statewide approve of the job he’s doing, to include just 21% who strongly approve. That compares to 53% who disapprove, to include 43% who strongly disapprove. His overall approval stands at 34% among independent/other voters, a group he carried by nearly 20 points (57% to 38%) in 2020.

The CD Media Big Data Poll in Virginia was sponsored by CD Media and conducted by Big Data Poll, interviewing 1,061 likely voters statewide via online survey panel from October 16 to October 20, 2021. The survey sampling error is ± 3.0% at a 95% confidence interval. Results were weighted to represent statewide voter file demographics to include gender, age, race and region. The partisan breakdown of the survey was 35.6% Democratic, 34.4% Republican, 22.8% Independent and 7.2% Other. It’s important to note that sampling errors for subgroups are higher.

JOE’S UTOPIA: Biden Says His Rail Plan Will ‘Take Literally Millions of Automobiles Off the Road’

JOE’S UTOPIA: Biden Says His Rail Plan Will ‘Take Literally Millions of Automobiles Off the Road’

President Joe Biden touted his ‘Build Back Better’ proposal this week as his poll numbers continue to decline; telling a group of supporters his high-speed rail plan will take “millions of automobiles off the road.”
“If you can get in a train, and go from here to Washington much faster than you can in an automobile, you take the train! We will take literally millions of automobiles off the road, saving tens of millions of barrels of oil, dealing with cleaning up the air. This is not hyperbole, this is a fact,” said the President.

President Biden’s approval ratings are in a total free fall heading into the holiday season, with 37% of Americans giving Joe the thumbs-up.
“Just 37% of Americans questioned in a Quinnipiac University survey say they approve of the job Biden’s doing as president, with 52% giving him a thumbs down. The poll was conducted Oct. 15-18 and released on Tuesday,” reports Fox News.
“Adding to Biden’s political peril, just 28% of registered independents give the president a thumbs up on his job performance, while 56% do not. The Quinnipiac survey indicated that Republicans, by a 95%-3% margin, disapproved of how the president’s handling his duties in the White House, with Democrats approving 80%-11%,” adds Fox.

Other findings in the poll – by a 52%-41% margin, Americans say the country’s worse off today than a year ago, and opposition to a wall along the nation’s southern border with Mexico stands at 49%, down from a high of 64% in 2017. The survey also indicates that 59% considered the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 – by right wing extremists trying to upend congressional certification of Biden’s election victory over Trump – an attack on the federal government.

Texas Urges Supreme Court to Uphold Abortion Ban, Deny Joe Biden’s Demand to Block It

Texas Urges Supreme Court to Uphold Abortion Ban, Deny Joe Biden’s Demand to Block It

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed legal papers with the Supreme Court urging it uphold the state’s abortion ban and deny Joe Biden’s demand that SCOTUS block it.
In its argument, Paxton and his team of attorneys say the federal government has no legal standing in the case and no right to overturn the Texas law because it hasn’t suffered any injuries from it:

Federal courts are not “roving commissions assigned to pass judgment on the validity of the Nation’s laws.”
The United States’ lawsuit against Texas is extraordinary in its breadth and consequence, having an impact on precedents that have existed far longer than any right to abortion has been recognized. Nevertheless, the federal government asks this Court to apply the “ad hoc nullification machine” that pushes aside any doctrine of constitutional law that stands in the way of abortion rights.
Specifically, it asks the Court to ignore (among other things) requirements of justiciability, standing, and a cognizable cause of action—all so that the Court can reach the merits of the government’s challenge to Texas’s Senate Bill 8 (SB 8). The Court should decline this request. Under binding case law, the federal government is not adverse to Texas merely because it thinks a Texas law is unconstitutional. And it lacks standing because it has not been injured by SB 8. The federal government cannot get an abortion, and the Constitution does not assign it any special role to protect any putative right to abortion.

Biden’s administration officially asked the Supreme Court to block the Texas abortion ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortions. Texas had until today to file its legal papers explaining why the Supreme Court should keep the abortion ban in place while the legal challenge proceeds and pro-life groups expect the nation’s highest court to not block the ban for a second time.

The Supreme Court previously ruled that it would not block the ban when it considered a similar request from abortion businesses.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz told LifeNews she expects Biden to lose his request to block the ban: “We are excited to continue saving hundreds of lives through the Texas Heartbeat Act. However, the battle is not finished. We are confident Texas will ultimately defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
As LifeNews.com reported late last week, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Biden’s demand to block the ban. Previously, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who was appointed by Barack Obama, sided with the Biden administration’s Justice Department, which sued the state, arguing Texas’ law was unconstitutional because it went against Roe v. Wade.
Then, the 5th Circuit rejected Biden’s demand, voting 2-1 to allow the ban to stay in place as the underlying lawsuit continues. That was the third time it has allowed the law to stay in effect, responding to various pro-abortion legal challenges.
Yesterday, Biden officials called the ban “plainly unconstitutional” even though no right to abortion exists in the Constitution.
“S.B. 8 is plainly unconstitutional under this Court’s precedents,” the DOJ’s filing reads. “Texas has not seriously argued otherwise.”
“Texas’s insistence that no party can bring a suit challenging S.B. 8 amounts to an assertion that the federal courts are powerless to halt the State’s ongoing nullification of federal law,” the DOJ wrote. “That proposition is as breathtaking as it is dangerous.”
Monday’s filing marks the second time that the Supreme Court will weigh in on blocking the ban temporarily. Last month, in a legal challenge from abortion businesses, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to not block the ban while the lawsuit continued. Texas has until Thursday to file its response to Biden’s legal papers.
In its previous ruling, the Supreme Court said the pro-abortion groups did not provide sufficient reasons to justify blocking the law.
“The applicants now before us have raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law at issue,” the majority wrote. “But their application also presents complex and novel antecedent procedural questions on which they have not carried their burden. … In light of such issues, we cannot say the applicants have met their burden to prevail in an injunction or stay application.”
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett made up the majority in the decision. The justices who dissented were Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor also wrote separate dissents slamming the court for allowing Texas to restrict abortions.
If the Supreme Court decides to not block the ban, it will likely stay in place until December, when the 5th Circuit has scheduled oral arguments on Biden’s request to block it. That means thousands more unborn children will be saved from aboritons, as many women decide to keep their baby instead of ending their child’s life. Meanwhile, pregnancy centers that provide actual help and support for pregnant women are also experiencing higher numbers of calls and visit and are saving more babies from abortion.
As soon as Judge Pitman issued his decision putting the ban on hold, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed.
“We disagree with the Court’s decision and have already taken steps to immediately appeal it to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals,” Paxton wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. “The sanctity of human life is, and will always be, a top priority for me.”
Typically, state governments enforce pro-life laws and, when the laws are challenged, judges can block the states from enforcing them in a preliminary injunction. However, the Texas law leaves enforcement up to individual people. So, judges are considering whether they can stop all private citizens from enforcing the law – especially without allowing private citizens the chance to defend themselves in court first.
Pitman’s order prohibited state court judges and court clerks from accepting lawsuits that the law allows. That made it so some abortion businesses continued killing babies in abortions while others worried they would still not be able to do so legally because the law, even if blocked, still allows lawsuits against anyone killing babies in abortions or assisting them.
Attorneys for Texas said Biden’s Department of Justice is being unfair by asking the court to block “absent third parties” from enforcing the law “without letting them be heard.”
The Texas law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Thus far, the courts have refused to temporarily block the law, and as many as 3,000 unborn babies already have been spared from abortion.
On Friday, attorneys for the Department of Justice argued that the law is unconstitutional and the federal government has an interest in seeing it blocked.
Then, Judge Pitman issued the ruling they were hoping for and endorsed abortion in the process.
“The United States is substantially likely to succeed on the merits of its claims. It is substantially likely that S.B. 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge wrote. “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution. That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”
In comments to LifeNews.com, Texas Right to Life blasted the opinion:

The ruling is wildly broad, preventing Texas state officials from enforcing the law, including the shocking order to block every Texas judge and court clerk from even receiving lawsuits filed by citizens against the abortion industry. The provision blocking lawmakers is entirely unnecessary since the language of the Texas Heartbeat Act already prohibits government officials from enforcing the policy. However, Pitman’s effort to obstruct state judges and court clerks from fulfilling their lawful duties is astonishing.
This is the legacy of Roe v. Wade: Judges catering to the abortion industry, crafting a conclusion first and then searching the depths of legal literature for a rationale later.
Pro-Life attorneys are likely to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals immediately, in which we expect a fair hearing.
Until a higher court intervenes, the disappointing reality is that Pitman’s ruling will likely stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from being enforced.

Texas Right to Life maintained that abortionists could still be sued for violating the abortion ban, despite the ruling.

However, even with this ruling, abortionists can still be held liable for any abortions they commit in violation of the law.
The Texas Heartbeat Act states that an individual being sued under the law cannot claim as an affirmative defense that they were acting under the protection of a court order that had since been reversed or overturned:
“Notwithstanding any other law, the following [is] not a defense to an action brought under this section… a defendant’s reliance on any court decision that has been overruled on appeal or by a subsequent court, even if that court decision had not been overruled when the defendant engaged in conduct that violates this subchapter;” (Section 171.208(e)(3), Texas Health and Safety Code)Thus, those who aid or abet abortions, even if currently permitted by this ruling, could eventually be sued for their actions today.

“Texas Right to Life is dedicated to holding the abortion industry accountable to the fullest extent possible under the law. We are confident that the Texas Heartbeat Act will ultimately withstand this legal challenge and succeed where other states’ heartbeat bills have not,” the pro-life group concluded.
The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List also commented to LifeNews on Judge Pitman’s decision.
“The people of Texas speaking through their state legislators acted to protect unborn children with beating hearts, who are as human as you and me,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Heartbeat Act is estimated to have saved more than 4,700 babies since it took effect over a month ago. Now an unelected judge has interfered with the clearly expressed will of Texans. For two generations, the U.S. Supreme Court has tied the hands of states to enact laws protecting unborn children and their mothers. It is time to restore this right to the people and update our laws.”
Judge Pitman’s ruling came roughly one month after the law went into effect on Sept. 1. The Supreme Court declined to block its enactment, leaving the law in place while litigation against it continues in lower courts.
“Texas has made clear it does not want to follow the Supreme Court‘s abortion precedents,” federal government attorney Brian Netter said during Friday’s hearing.
He asked the judge to issue an injunction blocking Texas and “all of its officers, employees and agents, including private parties” from suing abortionists who violate the law, CNN reports.
“The state resorted to an unprecedented scheme of vigilante justice that was designed to scare abortion providers and others who might help women exercise their constitutional rights, while skirting judicial review,” Netter said.
However, Will Thompson, an attorney representing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Office, told the judge that the federal government is using “inflammatory rhetoric” to attack the law, and the heartbeat law is not the only legislation that allows private enforcement.
“This is not some kind of vigilante scheme. It’s a scheme that uses the normal and lawful process,” Thompson said.
Netter contended that private citizens really are just acting for the state as a proxy to enforce the law. The judge asked Thompson about this claim.
Afterward, Texas Right to Life slammed the Biden administration’s arguments as “maniacal” and “entirely unprecedented.”
Kimberlyn Schwartz, director of media and communications, summarized the hearing: “Ultimately, the Justice Department is asking the court to toss out all logic and judicial precedent in order to cater to the abortion industry. The Biden administration’s case is desperate and far-fetched, and we expect an impartial court to declare the lawsuit without merit.”
The Biden administration has taken multiple actions to thwart Texas’s efforts to save unborn babies from abortion. Along with the lawsuit, it also set aside $10 million – taxpayers’ money – to provide grants to the abortion industry in Texas and make additional Title X family planning funds available.
In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.
While abortion activists say some women are traveling to other states for abortions, they admit that others are having their babies instead.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
Texas Right to Life encouraged women seeking pregnancy help to visit its website for a list of resources. Find it here.
Polls show Americans support heartbeat laws. An April poll by the University of Texas-Austin found that 49 percent of Texans support making abortions illegal after six weeks of pregnancy, while 41 percent oppose it. In 2019, a national Hill-HarrisX survey also found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. Whether the law will remain in effect or ultimately be upheld as constitutional in court remains uncertain, but pro-life leaders are hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority.

Zuckerberg Feeling Desperate: Facebook Needs a Facelift

Zuckerberg Feeling Desperate: Facebook Needs a Facelift

It’s not enough that Zuckerberg’s stolen platform is the largest, most powerful social media network on the planet. Now, Facebook wants to control the “metaverse.”
Move over Microsoft; goodbye Zoom, because Facebook is ready to control every virtual meeting in the free world.
Ok, maybe free world isn’t the right word. Because Facebook doesn’t care about freedom. They’ll happily control meeting in any dark corner of the globe. Now, Zuckerberg wants a name that he feels better represents the company and it’s future vision.
This is no longer about chatting it up with your friends. And trust me on this, the only reason Zuckerberg wants to grow his control over the metaverse is that he is desperate to control the narrative. Don’t be surprised if Zuckerberg starts buying up news channels and other media companies. I can see it already: The New York Times, now part of the Mark Zuckerberg Experience. Or how about CNN: The most complicit name in news?
Once Zuckerberg controls the media, he’ll move on to elections.

Trending: No Offense But Studies Conclude the Vaxxed are Stupid

Picture this: Dominion voting machines replaced by Facebook status bots. Suddenly, dead people from the 18th century will have a social media presence, and very liberal social media presence.
If you think this all sounds TOO far-fetched, just remember, these same people told us Biden got more votes than Obama.

The LA Times chimes in:
There are two things wrong with Facebook’s reported plan for a name change that better reflects its role in the high-tech “metaverse.”
First, the metaverse? Seriously?
Second, who do they think they’re fooling?
It’s still Facebook, for goodness sake, that monstrous, monopolistic company that wants to undermine your privacy at every turn, spread lies and, Big Tobacco-style, hook young people for life on its digital products.
“Consumers are not stupid,” said Jan-Benedict Steenkamp, a marketing professor who specializes in branding at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
By which he means Facebook’s nearly 3 billion users worldwide are well aware of the seemingly endless controversies — the privacy issues, the misinformation, the turning a blind eye to hate speech, racism and political dishonesty.
“The only way for Facebook to move beyond its controversies is to radically clean up its act,” Steenkamp told me. “And anyway, even if Facebook does change its corporate name, its main product would still be called Facebook.”

SlideSlideSlideSlide

In other words, this is 90% publicity stunt, 10% corporate fluff.
In fact, many experts believe Facebook will follow in Google’s footprints and just create a generic parent company to group together it’s many parts, such as Instagram and WhatsApp.
Tweeters were happy to weigh in on possible names.

My best guess for the new name: “Meta”
But I’d prefer something more classic like simply “A Mark Zuckerberg Production”

 Meanwhile, other guesses say their new company name will be “Horizons.”
LA Times adds:
This is where the buzzy idea of the metaverse enters the picture. The phrase was coined by author Neal Stephenson in his 1992 sci-fi novel “Snow Crash.” Think of it as “cyberspace” — another phrase with sci-fi roots — on steroids.
If the parent company is called Horizon, the company’s various divisions, in turn, could be renamed “Horizon Facebook” or “Horizon Instagram” or variations thereof. Or they could remain unchanged.
And, of course, scandal-prone Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, would no longer be the CEO of Facebook when he’s testifying before disgruntled lawmakers, as seems to be often the case.
He’d be the Horizon CEO, which in theory would insulate the core Facebook brand from whatever missteps he’s been called to account for. Or he’d no longer be the poor sap who has to answer for Facebook. The head of the division would be in the hot seat.
Aside from getting Zuckerberg out of the hot seat, Facebook could also be rebranding in hopes of hooking the younger generation. They don’t want to be “your granny’s platform” anymore. Especially when today’s world values youth above all else.
A new corporate identity, Kahn observed, would have the dual benefits of turning the page on past scandals and repositioning the company in the digital marketplace as a cooler, fresher product.
“They need to get people to think about the brand in a different way,” she said.
We’ve seen this many times before. Perhaps the most prominent example of a company trying to reinvent itself by changing its corporate clothes was when tobacco giant Philip Morris renamed itself Altria Group in 2003.
The company said the switch better reflected its portfolio of businesses. But it wasn’t kidding anyone. The Philip Morris brand had grown toxic after endless tobacco controversies.
The Altria brand, meanwhile, was pristine. So the company called itself that — and kept on selling cigarettes.
Clearly, Facebook feels the need to distance themselves from their reputation, which is tainted as the enemy of free speech and individual’s rights. The company alienated half the country with their war against conservatives. In fact, they kicked Kevin Jackson off their platform nearly a year ago without cause. But conservatives exercise their buying power far more than any other class of people. Leftists tend to overlook that little tidbit of information.
With woke brands like Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben’s using name changes to somehow remain relevant in this leftist climate, it’s no wonder Facebook thinks changing names will somehow erase their sins. The only problem is, Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben didn’t need to rebrand. They just folded too soon when liberals cried foul. However, Facebook has many reasons to disassociate themselves from their brand. And no new name is going to give them a clean slate.

BREAKING: Donald Trump Launches Social Media Platform ‘TRUTH’

Former President Donald Trump confirmed this week the launch of his own social media network called ‘TRUTH’ after being banned by most platforms last January.
“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” Trump said in a press release. “We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon.

“TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech,” Trump continued. “Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!”
“TRUTH Social is America’s ‘Big Tent’ social media platform that encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology,” states the platform’s webpage.

Corruption alert: Virginia-based power company trying to dissuade gun owners from voting

Corruption alert: Virginia-based power company trying to dissuade gun owners from voting

VIRGINIA – According to reports, a Virginia-based power company is allegedly involved financially in a deceptive political advertising campaign aimed at tarnishing a Republican gubernatorial candidate via donations to a PAC masquerading as one looking out for gun owners – but appears to be trying to stop gun owners from hitting the polls.

One of Virginia’s biggest power companies, Dominion Energy, is working to prevent gun owners from voting in this year’s statewide elections.
Dominion’s political action committee contributed $200,000 to the Accountability Virginia PAC, which has funded for smear advertisements against GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, according to The Reload’s Stephen Gutowski.
The commercials criticize Youngkin for not receiving endorsements from the NRA and the Virginia Citizens Defense League, two major pro-Second Amendment organizations.
Yet, Gutowski noted in his report that Accountability Virginia PAC – who funded these attack ads that would appeal to Second Amendment enthusiasts – is not a conservative PAC in the least:
“However, the group only sprung up in July and is run by a liberal consulting group that processes donations through the biggest liberal funding operation in the country.
While it attacks Youngkin from the right on guns, it has not done the same to Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe even though he is much further to the left on the issue.
Rather than a straightforward campaign supporting gun rights, the effort appears intended to suppress gun voters and help McAuliffe win the tight race to become governor.”
In a sense, Accountability Virginia PAC appears to be trying to dissuade the pro-Second Amendment crowd from electing a Republican governor – effectively manipulating a pool of what they believe to likely be single-issue voters.

If you’re a gun owner living in Virginia, it appears your power company does not want you to turn out to vote. https://t.co/2AmD78Ooql

When McAuliffe campaigned for governor in 2013 and won, Dominion contributed directly to his campaign. Dominion gave $75,000 to McAuliffe’s campaign and $50,000 to his inauguration committee at the time.
When McAuliffe launched his candidacy for governor this time, his campaign said that he would not take campaign contributions from Dominion, which even the Washington Post noted in their report as being odd for the candidate as he has traditionally “been socially liberal but friendly to business.”
When Axios reported that Dominion had “found more subtle ways to back McAuliffe’s gubernatorial bid” by way of donating money to the “murky political group called Accountability Virginia PAC”, Dominion spokesperson Rayhan Daudani shared the following comments regarding the matter:
“Our company’s political donations are disclosed monthly on the company website. We give in a bipartisan, transparent manner as our voluntary disclosures demonstrate and will continue to do so.”
Which to be fair, the power company has donated money to both the Democratic and Republican parties – but the company just so happens to donate more money to Democratic entities.

Here’s how corrupt Terry McAuliffe is:
He promised to not take $ from Dominion Energy, a public utility.
So instead, @DominionEnergy has quietly spent big $ *to suppress the vote* with misinformation to help McAuliffe win. https://t.co/lHE5BPDGOu
— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) October 18, 2021

According to the company’s most recent financial report, which covers corporate political donations from January 1st to September 30th, 2021, the Democratic Governors Association received $250,000, while the Republican Governors Association received $200,000.
Additionally, the Democratic Attorneys General Association and the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee each received $250,000 from Dominion, while the Republican State Leadership Committee received $195,000.
Of course, Dominion sent more money to Democrats by way of giving $200,000 to Accountability Virginia PAC, which is tied to a liberal consulting group.
Dominion also contributed $165,000 to Democrat Hala Ayala’s campaign, despite her initial refusal to take funds from the energy company. In addition, Dominion made a $150,000 donation to Republican Jason Miyares’ campaign.
By the numbers, Democrats collectively received $1,115,000 in donations from Dominion, whereas Republicans received $545,000 during the same period.

McAuliffe’s dishonesty isn’t a surprise.
What is surprising is that @DominionEnergy would fund misinformation to convince Virginians not to vote.
Did Terry McAuliffe agree to a utility rate hike in exchange for this money?

The race for governor in Virginia is going to be a tight one, with recent polls showing that McAuliffe currently has a 2-point lead over Youngkin.

Candidate for governor explodes on Virginia sheriff for questioning ties to ‘Defund The Police’ group
(Originally published September 27th, 2021)
ROANOKE, VA – Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe responded angrily to a question from a Virginia sheriff on Wednesday who asked him about his acceptance of endorsements from left-wing groups who support defunding the police.

McAuliffe, who served as governor from 2014 to 2018, was confronted by Montgomery County Sheriff Hank Partin Wednesday while speaking at a Virginia Sheriffs Association event.
Sheriff Partin asked the Democratic politician why McAuliffe would say he supports law enforcement, but then accepted endorsements from the progressive group New Virginia Majority.
The sheriff noted:
“On July 20, you accepted an endorsement from the New Virginia Majority. They are a large, ‘defund the police’ organization, who want to abolish prisons and (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) ICE. You’ve said that you were proud to accept their endorsement.”

Terry McAuliffe Snaps At Virginia Sheriff For Asking About His Ties To ‘Defund The Police’ Grouphttps://t.co/UZfcYyB7cD
— The Federalist (@FDRLST) September 16, 2021

McAuliffe said he accepted all endorsements and then went on to attack the sheriff for even asking the question:
“Now first of all sheriff, I proudly accept any endorsements, I get hundreds and hundreds and hundreds.
“Groups that support me, I don’t know whether they do. Have I ever supported ‘defund the police’? Are you out of your mind?”
I’ve invested in law enforcement – I just went through 25 minutes of telling you what I do for the police. Not defunded, I funded them!”
McAuliffe could have trouble defending that statement, as he once posted on Twitter that he was proud of the group’s endorsement. Following the New Virginia Majority’s endorsement of him in the 2021 gubernatorial race, he posted:
“Proud to be endorsed by (New Virginia Majority). Together, we are going to keep Virginia moving forward. That starts with building a more inclusive Commonwealth that lifts up working people across Virginia. Onward!”

— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) July 20, 2021

The sheriff countered with exasperation:
“Unbelievable. I don’t believe an answer to either one of those questions.”
McAuliffe, clearly bothered by the questioning,  shot back:
“Well, I don’t care what you believe. I’ve got a track record. And I’m proud of that track record and I funded the police. I’ve never been for defund the police, so don’t bring your political rhetoric in here to me. I’ve got a record. I deal in facts!”
Before the heated exchange, McAuliffe was touting his support for law enforcement to the group of law enforcement professionals at the gathering in the Hotel Roanoke:
“I got out of bed every single day, wanting to make sure that our communities were safe. I could go for issue after issue after issue where I stood up for the sheriffs, and I will continue to do it.”
The New Virginia Majority’s Twitter feed supports Partin’s accusations. The organization repeatedly calling for defunding law enforcement and abolishing ICE. One post by the group read:
“Defund the police and invest in education, health care, and housing for our communities!”
McAuliffe’s political opponent for governor, Glenn Youngkin, commented on the exchange through his campaign spokesman Christian Martinez:
“McAuliffe turned his back on law enforcement officers by refusing to meet with the Virginia Police Benevolent Association and embracing radical groups that want to defund the police and abolish prisons.
“McAuliffe failed to keep Virginians safe the last time he was governor, and he will fail again with his anti-police policies that are too dangerous and extreme for Virginia.”

Virginia lieutenant governor claims he was treated like George Floyd, Emmett Till over sexual assault allegations
(Originally published April 10th, 2021)

The following article contains editorial content written by a current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today
_
PETERSBURG, VA – During the state of Virginia’s recent Democratic gubernatorial debate, Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax likened his plight when dealing with sexual assault allegations from 2019 to that of being treated as though he were Emmett Till or George Floyd.

Minus you being alive. And ‘believe women’ 🙄👉Va. Lt. Gov. Fairfax says he was treated like George Floyd, Emmett Till over sexual assault allegations https://t.co/K7t3KexOUh
— Jon Nicosia (@NewsPolitics) April 7, 2021

On April 6th, Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial debate took place at Virginia State University in Petersburg. As the hour-long televised debate neared its end, Fairfax was answering a question with regard to envisioning the future of policing.
During said delivered answer, Fairfax segued into highlighting the death of George Floyd and correlating that incident to being emblematic to the alleged predicament suffered by black Americans when dealing with police:
“The murder of George Floyd was horrific. But it recalls a history in Virginia and in our nation where African Americans, in particular African American men, are presumed to be guilty, are treated inhumanely, are given no due process and have their lives impacted, in some cases taken away in an instant.”
While Fairfax’s characterization of the death of George Floyd is pretty run-of-the-mill in terms of modern day politi-speak, he then latched on to the mentioning of “no due process” to then correlate that to allegations that were brought against him back in 2019.
For those unaware of these 2019 allegations that were lodged against Fairfax, a woman by the name of Meredith Watson alleged that Fairfax had raped her while they were attending Duke University together in 2000.
Another woman, Vanessa Tyson, alleged that Fairfax had forced her to perform oral sex on him while they were at the Democratic National Convention in Boston back in 2004.
When Fairfax raised these past allegations against him, he claimed that those who called for his immediate resignation following the then-unsubstantiated allegations was tantamount to him being treated like Emmett Till and George Floyd:
“Everyone here on the stage called for my immediate resignation, including Terry McAuliffe three minutes after a press release came out. He treated me like George Floyd; he treated me like Emmett Till — no due process, immediately assumed my guilt.
I have a son and a daughter. I don’t ever want my daughter to be assaulted, I don’t want my son to be falsely accused. And yet this is the real world that we live in.”
While Fairfax did genuinely endure some harsh scrutiny and criticism when those allegations surfaced back in 2019, which included folks flailing their proverbial pitchforks and calling for his resignation, it probably would have been more tactful to just characterize that experience as being devoid of “due process” and leave it at that.
In a legal sense, the verdict isn’t out yet on whether George Floyd simply died, or he was killed by Derek Chauvin.
But even acknowledging that ambiguity regarding that case, it’s simply not smart to compare one’s dealing with frivolous allegations of sexual assaults to that of someone that many believe to have been unjustly murdered.
Even if one were to completely ignore his self-comparison to George Floyd, Fairfax did have the audacity to proclaim that he was treated like Emmett Till.

I cannot believe Justin Fairfax compared his sexual assault allegations (unprompted, mind you) to Emmet Till and George Floyd
— 🅱️izza 🅿️oli’s (@hamms_son) April 6, 2021

Emmett Till was murdered by two men over an allegation that he whistled at a white woman walking by, and the two men wound up being that woman’s husband and brother. But the manner in which he was murdered was simply horrid.
It was back on August 28th of 1955 in Money, Mississippi when 14-year-old Emmett Till was forced to carry a 75-pound cotton gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River, where he was then instructed to remove his clothing by the two men.
These two men then nearly beat Emmett Till to death, gouged out one of his eyes, and then shot him in the head. His body was then thrown into the Tallahatchie River after his murderers had tied the cotton gin fan to his body.

Hmm. Wouldn’t be inclined to a candidate for office who compared Emmett Till to a politician’s blacklisting.
There are similarities that could be used at arm’s length to tarnish the accusations, but bringing George Floyd in makes it overreach.https://t.co/QbG7Qxn9FN @nbcnews
— George Levin (@GLevin023) April 7, 2021

So for Fairfax to compare his dealings with false allegations levied against him, even to the point where it spawned calls for his resignation, is completely absurd. 
Emmett Till was murdered brutally over a lie. Lt. Governor Fairfax had to engage in political damage control over some false allegations. Those two sets of experiences are not even in the same galaxy of comparable instances. 
Furthermore, anyone entering the realm of politics, or looking to move up in the world of, gets their fair share of hit pieces and slander/libel campaigns that attempt to attribute unsavory acts to them.
Fairfax having to navigate around such instances is not a unique experience, and certainly not one comparable to that of a boy who never got to see his 15th birthday because he was murdered solely for being accused of flirting with a white woman in 1955. _

Robert Mueller Investigated For Staging Alleged Militia Hoax Now Used To Prosecute Jan 6 Defendant

Robert Mueller Investigated For Staging Alleged Militia Hoax Now Used To Prosecute Jan 6 Defendant

The FBI under former director Robert Mueller stands accused of staging a hoax in Madisonville, Tennessee in 2010 to falsely entrap a man on a rare gun charge — and that case is now used as precedent to prosecute a January 6 protester on the same rare gun charge.
Evidence provided to National File suggests that Mueller’s FBI completely invented the details of a supposed militia attempt to take over a courthouse, framing a man named Darren Wesley Huff. One of Mueller’s top deputies is alleged to have provided a false statement that contradicts numerous other sworn statements and evidence in the case.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) opened an investigation into Mueller’s conduct, according to documented evidence presented below and in audio recordings obtained by NATIONAL FILE in which a witness in the case speaks to TBI investigators. Mueller’s FBI coordinated on the takedown of Huff with the left-wing “Fogbow” activist organization led by a leftist named PJ Foggy, who wears a hammer and sickle hat, according to PJ Foggy’s admissions.
PJ Foggy of TheFogBow Blog, pictured wearing his hammer and sickle hat
Guy Reffitt has been charged under the firearm provision of the rioting statute, stemming from the January 6 Election Integrity protest in Washington, D.C. in which Capitol Police allowed pro-Trump demonstrators to peacefully enter the Capitol building.
Prosecutors claim that Reffitt transported two guns, an AR-15 and a Smith & Wesson, to Washington, D.C., even though Reffitt’s lawyer argues that there’s no evidence whatsoever that Reffitt was armed at the Capitol.

It’s the latest charge against Reffitt, after he pleaded not guilty to three other charges. It’s a charge that has very concerning implications for the justice system going forward, since people can now be charged with a crime simply for having firearms if the government thinks they are going to a protest. And it’s a charge that insiders believe is propped up by a hoax.
The Washington Post reported on Reffitt and the federal rioting statute, noting that the precedent used to prosecute Reffitt is based on the case of another man named Darren Wesley Huff.

The Washington Post reported: “In 2015, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit upheld the law, saying the statute does not criminalize speech or any protected rights. ‘Unlawful conduct is not protected conduct,’ a three-judge panel ruled, upholding the 2011 conviction at trial of Darren Wesley Huff, a former Georgia militia member found guilty of bringing an AK-47 rife, Colt .45-caliber handgun and 300 rounds of ammunition and trying to rally others to take over a Monroe Co. (Tenn.) courthouse after a grand jury wouldn’t charge President Barack Obama with treason.” (Washington Post passage concludes).

But there’s a big problem with that precedent. It turns out, according to massive evidence including eyewitness sworn affidavits and photographic evidence provided to this outlet, Darren Wesley Huff never actually tried to take over the courthouse in Tennessee, and Robert Mueller’s FBI allegedly fabricated the case.
“The DOJ / FBI are using a DOJ / FBI manufactured domestic terrorist hoax gun charge conviction as precedent to target Mr. Guy Reffitt for prosecution on a gun charge regarding Mr. Reffitt’s attendance at the U.S. Capitol rally on 6 January 2021,” Walter Fitzpatrick, a witness in the Huff case, tells NATIONAL FILE.

“The federal precedent results from the DOJ / FBI targeting Mr. Darren Wesley Huff in 2010 accusing Navy Veteran Huff of traveling from Georgia to Tennessee on 20 April 2010 to a trailer park courthouse in Madisonville, Tennessee. The federal accusation accuses of traveling across state lines with guns with intent to riot. It’s all an FBI manufactured hoax. Mr. Huff was never at the courthouse. The 12 or so other men Van Balen talks about are ghosts. No one at the courthouse on 20 April 2010 was armed, saving for law enforcement officials,” Walter Fitzpatrick said, noting that a sheriff’s deputy told him that the entire exercise was good for “training.”
At the time, Fitzpatrick was calling for then-President Barack Obama to be investigated. He was accused of attempting to make citizens arrests of local officials who refused to investigate Obama, prompting Huff and others to come to his defense in Madisonville. Huff was ultimately convicted of one count and acquitted of another, though the jury initially came back hung.

“The FBI under Mueller declared his anticipated activity on 20 April 2010 a federal police emergency. Their law enforcement presence is the stuff of legend around East Tennessee. Hundreds of officers,  many in camo, snipers on roofs and in windows, roadblocks into and out of Madisonville, helos (plural) airborne, pixelated pole cameras,” Walter Fitzpatrick said.
An Oath Keeper has footage of the traffic stop of Darren Wesley Huff, who never actually went to the courthouse.

No one was arrested on the date in question. Huff was arrested 10 days later on April 30 after he was pulled over on Interstate 35 based on a warrant stemming from a federal affidavit from Mueller henchman Mark Van Balen that witnesses claim is fabricated. Van Balen’s affidavit is dated April 26, six days after the protest.
A photo of the crowd of protesters outside the courthouse that day shows women and children, and clearly shows that Huff did not lead a band of 12 armed men to take over the courthouse. Huff is not in the photograph because he was not at the courthouse. In fact, Darren Wesley Huff was at a restaurant during the peaceful protest.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation opened an “investigative case file” on Mueller’s conduct, according to the 2018 document presented below. Fitzpatrick spoke with TBI investigators about the case, as documented on audio recordings.

Mark Van Balen’s affidavit stated, allegedly falsely:

SWORN AFFIDAVIT OF WILLIAM R. LOOMAN, former Sergeant of the Marines, drill instructor at Paris Island, he traveled with Darren Huff that day on April 20 from Georgia, never left his sight or his side:

2013 SWORN AFFIDAVIT FROM JOHN IVENS: “To Whom It May Concern: On 20 April 2010, I did attend a hearing for arraignment of Walter Fitzpatrick in Madisonville, Tennessee. I was one who had to stay outside and await the outcome of the arraignment. All around me were law officers and only a few others, like myself, awaiting the outcome. During this time, I heard no derogatory comments about the government or anyone involved in this situation that would have caused alarm in anyone. I, myself, had no weapon, neither did I observe anyone else other than officers with weapons. No threatenings [sic] were made toward anyone. I had coffee with Mr. Fitzpatrick and Mr. Huff in Donna’s cafe along with 8-10 others who had showed up for the hearing during a break.
I heard nothing threatening out of either and none of us were armed. The only conversation was as you would imagine given the circumstances but nothing harmful to anyone. Later I had FBI appear at my door, I guess from obtaining tag numbers while we were there, asking me about my trip and why I was there?
They seemed to have the impression that I and members of the group were armed. I informed that that was a lie. I did feel they were invading my privacy and right to go where I wanted when I wanted and asked them to leave which they did. I have heard about Mr. Fitzpatrick’s situation since that time and feel this is a travesty against all we have been taught and believe about our government. It should never have happened but I have not heard any threats against anyone regarding this situation.
I am a U.S. citizen and former military also an Oath Keeper who feels that this was my right and duty to attend this meeting. I was unarmed and did no harm to anyone, just a bystander and a coffee drinker. These were my rights and I feel I was well protected by the outrageous number of law enforcement that day who were using our tax dollars.”

PJ FOGGY SPILLLS THE BEANS: PJ Foggy, a blogger who wears a hammer and sickle hat and is part of the leftist “FOGBOW” network stated, “We’re the ones who got more than 100 cops ready for Cdr. Walt Fitzpatrick, when he showed up on April 20 with a group of armed men who thought they’d take over the Monroe County courthouse.”
Here are is a photo of PJ Foggy followed by his admission that he played a role in what insiders believe was a Mueller hoax:

The Empire Of Lies Breaks Down: Ugly Truths The Deep State Wants To Keep Hidden

America is breaking down.
This breakdown—triggered by polarizing circus politics, media-fed mass hysteria, racism, classism, fascism, fear-mongering, political correctness, cultural sanitation, virtue signaling, a sense of hopelessness and powerlessness in the face of growing government corruption and brutality, a growing economic divide that has much of the population struggling to get by, and militarization and militainment (the selling of war and violence as entertainment)—is manifesting itself in madness, mayhem and an utter disregard for the very principles and liberties that have kept us out of the clutches of totalitarianism for so long.
In New York City, for example, a 200-year-old statue of Thomas Jefferson holding the Declaration of Independence will be removed from the City Council’s chambers where it has presided since 1915. Despite Jefferson’s many significant accomplishments, without which we might not have the rights we do today, he will be banished for having been, like many of his day, a slaveowner. Curiously, that same brutal expectation of infallibility has yet to be applied to many other politically correct yet equally imperfect and fallible role models of the day.

In Washington, DC, a tribunal of nine men and women spoke with one voice to affirm that the government and its henchmen can literally get away with murder and not be held accountable for their wrongdoing. The Supreme Court’s latest rulings are yet another painful lesson in compliance, a reminder that in the American police state, “we the people” are at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to ‘serve and protect.”

Will the 2nd Amendment Be Destroyed By the Biden Admin?

Completing this poll grants you access to DC Dirty Laundry updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to this site’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.All across the country, from California to Connecticut and every point in between, men and women who have worked faithfully and diligently at their jobs for years are being terminated for daring to believe that they have a right to bodily integrity; that they should not be forced, against their conscience or better judgment, to choose between individual liberty and economic survival; and that they—and not the government, or the FDA, or the CDC, or the Corporate State—have dominion over their bodies. Conveniently enough, this COVID-19 pandemic has created yet another double standard in how “we the people” navigate this country: while “we the middling classes” are subjected to vaccine mandates and denied even the right to be skeptical about the origins of the COVID virus, let alone the efficacy of the so-called cure, the government, corporations and pharmaceutical companies have been shielded from liability with blanket immunity laws that ensure we are little more than guinea pigs for their questionable experiments.

And then in Pennsylvania, a man traveling on a commuter train harassed, assaulted and then raped a woman over the course of 40 minutes and more than two dozen train stops while fellow travelers, watching and filming the attack, did nothing. Not a single witness called 911. Not a single bystander intervened to help the woman. Despite the fact that the man was outnumbered and could have been overwhelmed by those on the train, no collective effort was made to ward off the attack. Only when it was too late, when the damage had been done and the train had pulled into its last stop, did police show up to intervene.
There is an allegory here for what is happening to our country and its citizens, who have also been waylaid by a madman (the Deep State), stripped of their safety nets (their rights undermined and eroded), and savaged out in the open by a fiend (the American Police State and its many operatives—the courts, the legislatures and their various armies) that is devoid of humanity while those not in the immediate crosshairs watch safely from a distance without making a move to help.
Trending:
Sorry. No data so far.

TRENDING:  Truth Is Fallen In The Street

This is madness, yet there is a method to this madness.
This is how freedom falls and tyranny rises.

Remember, authoritarian regimes begin with incremental steps: overcriminalization, surveillance of innocent citizens, imprisonment for nonviolent—victimless—crimes, etc. Bit by bit, the citizenry finds its freedoms being curtailed and undermined for the sake of national security. And slowly the populace begins to submit.
No one speaks up for those being targeted.
No one resists these minor acts of oppression.
No one recognizes the indoctrination into tyranny for what it is.
Historically this failure to speak truth to power has resulted in whole populations being conditioned to tolerate unspoken cruelty toward their fellow human beings, a bystander syndrome in which people remain silent and disengaged—mere onlookers—in the face of abject horrors and injustice.
Time has insulated us from the violence perpetrated by past regimes in their pursuit of power: the crucifixion and slaughter of innocents by the Romans, the torture of the Inquisition, the atrocities of the Nazis, the butchery of the Fascists, the bloodshed by the Communists, and the cold-blooded war machines run by the military industrial complex.
We can disassociate from such violence. We can convince ourselves that we are somehow different from the victims of government abuse. We can continue to spout empty political rhetoric about how great America is, despite the evidence to the contrary.
We can avoid responsibility for holding the government accountable.
We can zip our lips and bind our hands and shut our eyes.
In other words, we can continue to exist in a state of denial. Yet there is no denying the ugly, hard truths that become more evident with every passing day.

The government is not our friend. Nor does it work for “we the people.”
Our so-called government representatives do not actually represent us, the citizenry. We are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests whose main interest is in perpetuating power and control.
Republicans and Democrats like to act as if there’s a huge difference between them and their policies. However, they are not sworn enemies so much as they are partners in crime, united in a common goal, which is to maintain the status quo.
The lesser of two evils is still evil.
Some years ago, a newspaper headline asked the question: “What’s the difference between a politician and a psychopath?” The answer, then and now, remains the same: None. There is virtually no difference between psychopaths and politicians.
More than terrorism, more than domestic extremism, more than gun violence and organized crime, the U.S. government has become a greater menace to the life, liberty and property of its citizens than any of the so-called dangers from which the government claims to protect us
The government knows exactly which buttons to push in order to manipulate the populace and gain the public’s cooperation and compliance.
If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it.
America’s shadow government—which is comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes right now and operates beyond the reach of the Constitution with no real accountability to the citizenry—is the real reason why “we the people” have no control over our government.
You no longer have to be poor, black or guilty to be treated like a criminal in America. All that is required is that you belong to the suspect class—that is, the citizenry—of the American police state. As a de facto member of this so-called criminal class, every U.S. citizen is now guilty until proven innocent.
“We the people” are no longer shielded by the rule of law. By gradually whittling away at our freedoms—free speech, assembly, due process, privacy, etc.—the government has, in effect, liberated itself from its contractual agreement to respect our constitutional rights while resetting the calendar back to a time when we had no Bill of Rights to protect us from the long arm of the government.
Private property means nothing if the government can take your home, car or money under the flimsiest of pretexts, whether it be asset forfeiture schemes, eminent domain or overdue property taxes. Likewise, private property means little at a time when SWAT teams and other government agents can invade your home, break down your doors, kill your dog, wound or kill you, damage your furnishings and terrorize your family.
We now find ourselves caught in the crosshairs of a showdown between the rights of the individual and the so-called “emergency” state, and “we the people” are losing.
All of those freedoms we cherish—the ones enshrined in the Constitution, the ones that affirm our right to free speech and assembly, due process, privacy, bodily integrity, the right to not have police seize our property without a warrant, or search and detain us without probable cause—amount to nothing when the government and its agents are allowed to disregard those prohibitions on government overreach at will.
If there is an absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off.
Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—continue to be choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.
Forced vaccinations, forced cavity searches, forced colonoscopies, forced blood draws, forced breath-alcohol tests, forced DNA extractions, forced eye scans, forced inclusion in biometric databases: these are just a few ways in which Americans continue to be reminded that we have no control over what happens to our bodies during an encounter with government officials.
Finally, freedom is never free. There is always a price—always a sacrifice—that must be made in order to safeguard one’s freedoms.

We cannot remain silent in the face of the government’s ongoing overreaches, power grabs, and crimes against humanity.

TRENDING:  Why Ocasio-Cortez Is Allowed To Carry The Ball

Evil disguised as bureaucracy is still evil. Indeed, this is what Hannah Arendt referred to as the banality of evil.
As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, such evil happens when bureaucrats (governmental and corporate) unquestioningly carry out orders that are immoral and inhumane; obey immoral instructions unthinkingly; march in lockstep with tyrants; mindlessly perpetuate acts of terror and inhumanity; and justify it all as just “doing one’s job.”
Such evil prevails when good men and women do nothing.
By doing nothing, by remaining silent, by being bystanders to injustice, hate and wrongdoing, good people become as guilty as the perpetrator.
There’s a term for this phenomenon where people stand by, watch and do nothing—even when there is no risk to their safety—while some horrific act takes place (someone is mugged or raped or bullied or left to die): it’s called the bystander effect.
It works the same whether you’re talking about kids watching bullies torment a fellow student on a playground, bystanders watching someone dying on a sidewalk, passengers on a train filming a fellow traveler be raped without intervening to help, or citizens remaining silent in the face of government atrocities.
We need to stop being silent bystanders.
It’s time to stand up for truth—for justice—for freedom—not just for ourselves but for all humanity. Tomorrow may be too late.

Judicial Watch Files Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against City of Asheville over Racially Discriminatory Scholarship Program

Judicial Watch Files Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against City of Asheville over Racially Discriminatory Scholarship Program

October 20, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of a North Carolina citizens group, whose members include high school students, and are ineligible for a City of Asheville-funded scholarship only because they are not Black. The plaintiff in the lawsuit, WNC Citizens for Equality, Inc., is suing the City of Asheville, City Manager Debra Campbell, and the Asheville City Schools Foundation (ACSF) and its director regarding the city’s establishment of a racially discriminatory scholarship program.
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina (WNC Citizens for Equality, Inc., v. City of Asheville et al. (No. 1:21-cv-00310)).
On May 5, 2021, the City of Asheville entered into an agreement with Asheville City Schools Foundation to establish and administer the City of Asheville Scholarship Fund. According to the agreement, the City of Asheville Scholarship is “awarded in perpetuity to Black high school students within Asheville City Schools, with special consideration given for Black students pursuing a career in education.”
The new lawsuit argues that the scholarship is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and a violation of the members of WNC Citizens for Equality’s rights to equal protection under the law and freedom from racial discrimination under the North Carolina Constitution.
The funds provided by the City of Asheville for the City of Asheville Scholarship came from the settlement of an unrelated lawsuit. On April 13, 2021, the Asheville City Council directed City Manager Debra Campbell and City Attorney Brad Branham to effectuate a “donation” of $474,592.56 to ACSF. The City Council stated that it expected the funds would be used “in such a way as to provide the public benefit of advancing racial equity within the community.” A later, smaller donation also was made by the City of Asheville to ACSF for the same purpose.
According to ACSF’s website, the first City of Asheville Scholarship was awarded in May 2021. ACSF will begin accepting applications on November 1, 2021, and through January 31, 2022, for the next City of Asheville Scholarship to be awarded.
The lawsuit asks the court to declare the discriminatory scholarship scheme is in violation of both the U.S. Constitution and the North Carolina Constitution.
“It is illegal to discriminate on the basis of race and setting up a ‘blacks only’ scholarship is wildly unconstitutional,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This civil rights lawsuit seeks to ensure that no student in Asheville is denied educational scholarship opportunities on account of race.”

FREE FALLIN’: Biden’s Approval Rating Plunges to 37%, 52% Disapprove of the President

President Biden’s approval ratings are in a total free fall heading into the holiday season, with 37% of Americans giving Joe the thumbs-up.
“Just 37% of Americans questioned in a Quinnipiac University survey say they approve of the job Biden’s doing as president, with 52% giving him a thumbs down. The poll was conducted Oct. 15-18 and released on Tuesday,” reports Fox News.

“Adding to Biden’s political peril, just 28% of registered independents give the president a thumbs up on his job performance, while 56% do not. The Quinnipiac survey indicated that Republicans, by a 95%-3% margin, disapproved of how the president’s handling his duties in the White House, with Democrats approving 80%-11%,” adds Fox.

Other findings in the poll – by a 52%-41% margin, Americans say the country’s worse off today than a year ago, and opposition to a wall along the nation’s southern border with Mexico stands at 49%, down from a high of 64% in 2017. The survey also indicates that 59% considered the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 – by right wing extremists trying to upend congressional certification of Biden’s election victory over Trump – an attack on the federal government.

Mayor Lightfoot says FOP president is trying to “induce an insurrection” over position on mandates

Mayor Lightfoot says FOP president is trying to “induce an insurrection” over position on mandates

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.
And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
For those looking for a quick link to get in the fight and support the cause, click here.

CHICAGO, IL – According to reports, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot recently claimed that Chicago FOP President John Catanzara is attempting to “induce an insurrection” regarding him urging union members to not adhere to vaccine mandates imposed by the city.
The Chicago mayor went as far to also allege that what the FOP is doing is tantamount to conducting an “illegal work stoppage, a strike” by suggesting FOP members to not comply with the aforementioned vaccine mandate.

“What we’ve seen from the Fraternal Order of Police, in particular leadership, is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half-truths, and, frankly, flat out lies in order to induce an insurrection . And we’re not having that,” Lightfoot told reporters. https://t.co/Q4X1QSnCIu
— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) October 19, 2021

On October 18th, as reporter asked Mayor Lightfoot about the ongoing legal action the city is taking against the FOP leadership over the union’s position on vaccine mandates, inquiring as to the rationale of said legal action and why she feels confident in pursuing the matter.
Mayor Lightfoot stated that she believes that FOP leadership – meaning Catanzara – is spreading “misinformation” about vaccines and that the union is trying to “induce an insurrection”:
“What we’ve seen from the Fraternal Order of Police, in particular leadership, is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half-truths, and, frankly, flat out lies in order to induce an insurrection.
And we’re not having that. And so we want to make it very, very clear that the law is on our side. We feel very confident about it.”
The Chicago mayor alleged that what the police union is doing is essentially trying to engage in a work strike, which is illegal when it comes to law enforcement:
“So you ask the question of why the lawsuit. Because we believe that the FOP leadership is trying to foment an illegal work stoppage, a strike, pure and simple. We’ve laid that out in the materials. And we’re not having that. The contract is clear.”

Framing the FOP leadership’s position on vaccine mandates within the workplace and equating that to attempting to “induce an insurrection” is quite a stretch, in that an insurrection is defined as a “violent attempt to take control of a government” and what FOP President Catanzara suggested was that officers don’t comply with vaccine mandates.
Basically, urging people to engage in behavior that could result in loss of pay and termination of employment doesn’t come close to attempting to “induce an insurrection.”
As for framing Catanzara’s words as a means to coordinate “an illegal work stoppage, a strike” – that aspect leaves room for some debate, but it’s also important to note that Catanzara never told union members to officially go on strike or fail to report to duty in protest.
Recently, a judge had ordered FOP President Catanzara to stop using social media to urge Chicago Police officers to defy the city’s mandate on vaccines.
During the October 15th hearing where the order was handed down to Catanzara, city attorney Michael Warner called Catanzara’s word unprotected speech that were the equivalent of “sedition”:
“It’s not First Amendment-protected speech. He is advocating sedition. He is advocating anarchy here. That, in and of itself, is causing irreparable harm.”
The statement made by city attorney Warner managed to even draw criticism from Chicago-based First Amendment lawyer Ari Cohn – who admittedly does not like Catanzara in the least, but acknowledged that Warner calling the FOP president’s words “sedition” was ridiculous:
“John Catanzara is an unmitigated asshole shitbird. But I really should not have to tell you, [Michael Warner], that encouraging police officers to violate the city’s vaccine mandate is absolutely not ‘sedition.’ Shameful that those words escaped your mouth.”

Time to flee the city? Lawsuits fly as Chicago FOP says half of police force could be fired over mandate
(Originally published October 18th, 2021)
CHICAGO, IL – Things are heating up in the “Windy City” as the Mayor warns that police officers and other city workers who defy the city’s vaccine mandate will be put on no-pay status — and could be fired if they don’t show up for work.

Chicago Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) President John Catanzara said Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) 12,000 officers until midnight on Oct. 14 to disclose their vaccine status. Catanzara is telling officers that the city has no authority to mandate the shots:
“I’ve made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody, let alone that information about your medical history and change the terms of employment so to speak on the fly.”
Catanzara has warned Chicago could be forced to get by this weekend with a police force of “50% or less” if the mayor follows through on her threat to place employees who fail to report their vaccination status by Friday on “non-disciplinary, no-pay status.”
Mayor Lightfoot said the city would take the weekend to review which officers complied with the order before taking action. She said she did not expect to place any officers on unpaid leave until next week and said officers should continue reporting for duty unless told otherwise:
“No employee should abandon their post. Not showing up creates a whole other set of issues for them.”

Some people in my city want to flame fires and make us feel unsafe – but towards what end?

— Leni Monster-Mash-Hoppenworth 👻 (@lenihoppenworth) October 16, 2021

The Mayor would not answer what the city planned to do if half the officers were taken off the streets, instead holding on to hopes that officers would comply:
“I don’t expect that to happen. And again, I’m gonna (sic) be focused on the positive, which is, the whole point that all of our city employees — whether they are sworn or civilian — do their duty and make sure they get vaccinated.
“I believe that, as a city government, we’ve got to lead by example. … The only way that we can make this real is we’ve got to hold people accountable. And we are absolutely prepared to do that.”
After throwing a barb at the Union boss, she said told officers to protect their families and the community:
“John Catanzara says a lot of things. A lot of it offensive and racist and foolish. But we’ll see what happens. We’ll be prepared for any eventuality.”
“Our message is to the members: Protect yourself. Protect your family. Protect your partner. Protect members of the public. Get yourself vaccinated. We don’t want to lose any more police officers from COVID-19 deaths when the life-saving vaccine is readily available.”

Opting not to respond to the personal attack by the Mayor, Catanzara said a large number of officers find the vaccine requirement and the survey that must be submitted are “overreach”:
“If we suspect the numbers are true and we get a large number of our members to stand firm on their beliefs that this is an overreach and they’re not going to supply the information in the portal or submit to testing, then it’s safe to say the city of Chicago will have a police force at 50 percent or less for this weekend coming up.
“That is not because of the FOP; that is 100 percent because of the mayor’s unwillingness to budge from her hard line.”
According to Lightfoot, the survey required of officers is “very basic” and “not intrusive.”
The city took the extraordinary step of asking a judge to silence the Union, and the judge surprisingly agreed.

A restraining order came Friday evening, just a day after the city sued the police union and its president, John Catanzara, alleging they were “encouraging a work stoppage or strike” by suggesting offices not report their COVID-19 vaccination status as required.
Mayor Lightfoot said in a Friday press release:
“As Chicago’s mayor, I cannot and will not stand idly by while the rhetoric of conspiracy theorists threatens the health and safety of Chicago’s residents and first responders.
“President Catanzara has time and again deliberately misled our police officers by lying about the requirements of the policy and falsely claiming that there will be no repercussions if officers are insubordinate and refuse to follow a City and Department directive or order.”
“… By doing so, and by predicting that 50 percent or more officers will violate their oaths and not report for duty, Catanzara is encouraging an unlawful strike and work stoppage which carries the potential to undermine public safety and expose our residents to irreparable harm, particularly during an ongoing pandemic.”
The Union reacted by filing its own lawsuit against the city, claiming officials did not negotiate over the mandate in good faith and sending out the mandate without discussing the terms with the Union. Catanzara told reporters:
“Our stance from the beginning is that we’re a union there are collective bargaining rights that need to be maintained and honored.”
Catanzara and Lightfoot have sparred on many occasions, and reports claim the two do not like each other on a personal level. The vaccine mandate has been burning between them since the Mayor made the mandate announcement in August, and at times, things got overheated between the two.
Shortly after the mandate was announced, Catanzara compared it to tactics used by Nazi Germany.
“We’re in America, Godd–n it. We don’t want to be forced to do anything. Period. This ain’t Nazi f—ing Germany, (where they say), ‘Step into the f—ing showers. The pills won’t hurt you.’ What the f—k?”
He apologized for the comments after blowback from the Anti-Defamation League and other groups.

Chicago could soon be without a number of police officers as Mayor Lightfoot and the FOP battle in court on the city’s vaccine mandate.

The Union boss released another video on Thursday calling on officers to reject the mandate. Catanzara said he does not think the city should be able to require workers to get vaccinated, nor does he think officers should trust the city with their private health information.
[embedded content]
The Mayor has backed off on employment threats in the past, but this battle seems to be coming to a head. She said officers who do not want to comply can leave the department:
“It’s an honor to be a Chicago police officer. And anyone who says, ‘We get to do what we want, when we want it. We get to have the kind of policing that we want when we want it,’ that is the kind of policing that has happened in our city for far too long,” and it’s why residents don’t trust police.
“We’re not having that anymore. It is a new day in the city of Chicago.”
After Friday, all city workers who are not fully vaccinated must agree to twice-weekly testing through Dec. 31, at which point they are required to be fully vaccinated, or they can face discipline.
Catanzara has directed rank-and-file police officers to file forms “no earlier than Thursday” exempting them from receiving the vaccine for one of three reasons the union has insisted upon: religious, medical, or conscientious objector.
He directed them to report to work, as scheduled, on Friday and force the city to send them home.
In a video posted on the union’s Facebook page, Catanzara told officers their insurance benefits will continue for 30 days, even if they are placed on “non-disciplinary” suspension without pay.
“I can guarantee you that no-pay status will not last more than 30 days. There’s no way they’re going to be able to sustain a police department workforce at 50% capacity or less for more than seven days without something budging.”
In an interview Friday night on Fox News, Catanzara summed up how he sees the battle:
“The numbers we have are probably around half are not [vaccinated]. But even the ones that are, like myself, believe that a forced mandate is absolutely wrong.
“The reality is, we have a profession nobody else wants to do right now. They cannot get anybody to go into this police academy, but yet here she is vilifying the police yet again in a city that has over 185 expressway shootings this year alone.
“Over 280 kids shot this year alone, and she acts like there’s nothing else going on but this COVID.”

Chicago is not alone in the battle between privacy rights, medical rights, and vaccine mandates. Cities across the country are struggling with this same issue.
At least 120 officers in San Francisco have been removed from duty for failing to comply with the city’s vaccine mandate. Eighty of the 120 police officers removed from work were from the department’s patrol division, San Francisco Police Officers Association vice president Tracy McCray said.
Law Enforcement Today will be following these battles and reporting on them in the days to come.

Arkansas Legislator Will Introduce Heartbeat Bill That Would Ban Abortions Just Like Texas

Arkansas Legislator Will Introduce Heartbeat Bill That Would Ban Abortions Just Like Texas

Arkansas may become the second state in the U.S. to ban abortions on unborn babies with beating hearts this fall.
The Daily Mail reports state Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, hopes to introduce the Arkansas Heartbeat Protection Act later this month. He said his bill is a “mirror” of the Texas law that has saved thousands of unborn babies since it went into effect Sept. 1.
Like the Texas law, Rapert said his bill will ban abortions on unborn babies once their heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy; it also includes “a civil cause of action” that allows private citizens to sue abortionists who abort unborn babies in violation of the law.
“It should be easy to pass the Texas-style heartbeat bill in our upcoming special session,” he said.
SUPPORT LIFENEWS! If you like this pro-life article, please help LifeNews.com with a donation!
In a statement Tuesday, Rapert urged Gov. Asa Hutchinson to call a planned special legislative session so that they can pass the bill. Hutchinson, a pro-life Republican, recently said he would delay convening the session, in part, because he wants to wait for “Supreme Court guidance.”
“We have the opportunity to save the lives of unborn Arkansans today, all the governor has to do is call a special session of the legislature with the Heartbeat Bill on the agenda and we will pass it,” Rapert responded. “We don’t need to wait on the U.S. Supreme Court for guidance – Arkansas people want to stop abortions right now.”
Texas is the first state to be allowed to enforce a heartbeat law, but pro-abortion groups and the Biden administration are fighting desperately in court to block it. This week, the Supreme Court agreed to consider temporarily blocking the law, but it has not ruled yet.
Rapert, who has sponsored other pro-life legislation, told the Southwest Times Record earlier this fall that he would stop abortions today if he could.
“I’d go board-up the abortion clinics in west Little Rock this weekend and be done with it because that’s what the people of Arkansas want,” he said. “But I’m working within the system, and we respect the fact that we passed laws, they got struck down, we came at it again.”
Arkansas lawmakers passed a similar heartbeat law, the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act (Senate Bill 6), by a strong majority in March. However, a federal judge blocked the law before the state could enforce it.
Rapert believes his new bill is more likely to withstand a legal challenge and save babies’ lives because it includes a unique provision that allows private citizens to enforce the abortion ban. It is because of this unique provision that the Texas law currently is in effect, saving thousands of babies’ lives.
Americans United for Life named Arkansas the “most pro-life state in America” in 2020. The state legislature has passed more than a dozen pro-life laws in the past two years, though many are not in effect because of Roe v. Wade.
Since 1973, the Supreme Court has forced states to legalize abortion on demand under Roe v. Wade. States that want to protect unborn babies may only do so once they reach the point of viability, currently about 22 weeks. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.
Arkansas and more than a dozen other states are challenging that precedent through total abortion bans, laws that prohibit abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, laws banning discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with disabilities, and laws banning abortions after the first trimester.
On Dec. 1, the Supreme Court will hear a Mississippi case to consider “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.” The state law at issue in the case prohibits abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
Polls indicate that most Americans want stronger protections for unborn babies. Gallup has been asking about the legality of abortions by trimester for decades. Its polls have found steady, strong opposition to abortion on demand. Additionally, a 2019 Hill-HarrisX poll found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.

Biden Lawyer Caught Criticizing Pro-Life Christians: They’re Not “Sincere” in Their Beliefs

Biden Lawyer Caught Criticizing Pro-Life Christians: They’re Not “Sincere” in Their Beliefs

A lawyer in the Biden administration has been caught in a phone call criticizing pro-life Christians and questioning the sincerity of their beliefs. The White House official was captured criticizing the religious beliefs of federal workers on abortion, specifically the religious exemptions to the COVID vaccine mandate.
Millions of Christians have not gotten the COVID vaccine in part because of the vaccines and their various connections to cells from aborted babies. Some vaccines like the ones from Pfizer and Moderna were tested using cells derived from cells from an abortion babies. Others like the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were more specifically produced using such cells from aborted babies.
Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec posted the video exposing the Biden administration’s complete disregard for Americans’ religious liberty rights. In the September call, Biden lawyer Marty Lederman is heard advising the Biden administration on how to combat religious exemptions to the COVID vaccine mandate.
Click here to sign up for pro-life news alerts from LifeNews.com
Here’s more:

In the leaked call, Lederman advises that in “cases, for instance in the New York case that’s currently going on against the State of New York, the Thomas More Society is representing a bunch of doctors and nurses who claim that they would sin gravely in cooperation with the evil of abortion. How would they be doing so? The claim is that all three of the current vaccines, either have fetal cells that were obtained by abortions in the vaccine itself, or in the case of Pfizer and Moderna that those vaccines were tested using fetal cells that had been aborted, and even the connection to the previous testing, makes them cooperative with evil in a way that their religion prohibits.
“I don’t want to say anything too categorical but I believe that this claim will be very difficult for agencies to successfully claim that’s either insincere or not religious, even if it is. Even if we know that many of those claims are not sincere, or are sincere but not religions, this is the most common behavior you’re going to confront probably, and it’s likely that you will have to take as a given the employee’s claim.

“Not always, right, but one response that some hospitals have started to give is, ‘well do you know that Tylenol, and Tums, and Preparation H, those were all tested using aborted fetal cell lines, too.’ And I expect that employees will then say ‘well I didn’t know that, but now that you tell me that and I’ll stop using those products as well.’

“And then we will turn to the, ‘what does the government have to do once the employee makes that shown.’ And here, basically there is a compelling interest, obviously, in keeping our workforce and the public with which we interact safe from COVID.”

Religious exemptions are sincere and important to millions of Christian Americans, so much so that over 2,000 Christian doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in Maine have sued to stop that state’s mandate.
Recently, in an interview with Project Veritas, Pfizer employee Melissa Strickler provided emails from Pfizer executives instructing staff to avoid mentioning the fetal cell lines that the company used to test its COVID vaccine.
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine does not contain actual cells from aborted babies, but it was tested with a fetal cell line, HEK293T. That cell line was created with cells from an aborted baby that have been grown and multiplied in a lab for years, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.
All of the currently available COVID-19 vaccines have links to abortion, though none contain actual cells from aborted babies.
The companies Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca used cell lines created from babies who were aborted decades ago in the development and testing of their vaccines. The connections between abortion and the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are more limited, with cell lines created from aborted babies used only in testing the products.
The Charlotte Lozier Institute has a list of the COVID-19 vaccines with information about whether cell lines created from aborted babies were used in testing and/or production. Find it here.
In response to the investigation, Dr. David Prentice, vice president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, said the company easily could have avoided a public relations crisis by using ethical materials to create its new vaccine.
“Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies should commit to no longer using the antiquated science of fetal cells and instead use ethically-sourced alternatives as are routinely used for many other medications,” Prentice said in a statement last week.

AUDIT UTAH: Patriots Organize Rally For a Full Forensic Audit At Committee Meeting WEDNESDAY AT UTAH CAPITOL!

AUDIT UTAH: Patriots Organize Rally For a Full Forensic Audit At Committee Meeting WEDNESDAY AT UTAH CAPITOL!

Patriots in Utah will hold a rally on Wednesday for a full forensic audit of Utah’s 2020 election.
Election integrity is on the agenda at tomorrow’s Utah Judiciary Interim Committee Meeting, and the Patriots want to be heard.
This item was placed on the agenda by House co-chair Karianne Lisonbee and a key speaking slot was given to Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen.
Although President Trump won and was declared the winner in Utah, many still have doubts in Dominion and the state’s voter rolls, including Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen.
Salt Lake County, Utah’s largest County, ran their election with Dominion and President Trump received 11 points fewer than Biden.
Rep. Christiansen has been fighting for an election audit in Utah and he is the featured speaker at this rally.
Rep. Christiansen toured the Arizona audit in June and he told TGP that he would like to replicate this process in Utah.
Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen After AZ Audit Tour: “GOLDEN, INCREDIBLE, AMAZING EXPERIENCE”

This rally will take place on October 20, outside of the Capitol in Salt Lake City at 11 a.m., before the Judiciary Interim Committee meeting begins.
The Capitol is at 350 State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. 
Grassroots patriots will then organize inside to testify and give public comments at 12:45 p.m., before the meeting at 1:15 p.m.
sltrib reports,
It’s certainly possible that Wednesday’s committee meeting could lead to a similar subpoena-fueled audit. But here’s a possible roadblock. Interim committees have a House and Senate chair, so there’s not a single person in charge. And Utah code clarifies that any subpoena must include “the name of the legislative body or office on whose behalf the subpoena is issued.” This suggests that any decision to issue a subpoena would be subject to a committee vote.

Unarmed victim? Bodycam video released showing armed robbery suspect open fire on police

Unarmed victim? Bodycam video released showing armed robbery suspect open fire on police

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.
And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

ROCHESTER, NY- On Tuesday, October 12th, authorities with the Rochester Police Department (RPD) released body camera footage of a gunfight inside a Family Dollar store that left an armed robber dead.
[embedded content]
The day before her resignation as the city’s top cop, Rochester Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan released a video briefing the deadly incident. In the video release, she stated:
“It’s always been my goal to be as transparent as possible with the public and to share as much information as we can while keeping in mind that we have to respect the evidentiary value in certain instances.”
The video shared a timeline of events. The chief said the incident began when the city’s 911 call center received a hang-up call at about 9:32 p.m. on October 6th. The 911 operator called back the number and spoke with an employee of the Family Dollar store located in the 700-block of West Main Street.
During the call, the employee told the 911 operator:
“We’re getting robbed … there is male holding the store manager at gunpoint.”
Police said the employee gave a description of the armed robbery suspect as a black man in a blue hoodie and a mask. The body camera showed that when officers entered the Family Dollar store moments later, one of them asked if anyone in the store had a gun.
Video showed that the officers spotted the suspect in the blue hoodie behind the counter with both of his hands in the front pocket of his sweatshirt. One officer told the suspect:
“Let me see your hands. Get out of your pocket, get your hands out of your pocket.”

On Wednesday, the New York State Attorney General’s Office released its own body-worn camera video of the incident, one day after body-worn camera footage was released by the Rochester Police Department. https://t.co/6EGQx3fma9

The video showed the suspect sprinting away into the store, down an isle, ignoring the officer’s commands. The officer chased the suspect, since identified as 24-year-old Simran Gordon. Video showed that the officer managed to grab Gordon’s arm for a split second.
Police stated that then Gordon fired a shot at the officer through a paper bag in which he’d hidden his handgun, causing the officer to return fire. In the video, another shot is heard two seconds later.
Body camera video showed the backup officer had run down the parallel aisle in the store and encountered Gordon at the end where he had fallen. The handgun he had just fired through the paper bag was still in his hand and pointed at the officer.
Police stated that the backup officer fired one shot at the armed suspect. Both officers repeatedly ordered Gordon to drop his weapon, but he failed to comply. The video showed the backup officer was able to kick the handgun out of the suspect’s reach.
Gordon was killed during the shootout. Chief Herriott-Sullivan addressed criticism that officer hadn’t moved quickly enough to render aid to the wounded suspect, despite having called for an ambulance within 30 seconds of the shooting. The police chief explained:
“The officers did not initially render first aid to Mr. Gordon because they had to ensure there were no other suspects in the store or at the scene for everyone’s safety. Our condolences go out to the family of Mr. Gordon.”

The Rochester Police Locus Club released a statement, saying:
“We commend the bravery and professionalism of those officers involved last week in stopping a violent robbery in progress. They put their lives on the line for others when a violent individual made the choice to commit multiple crimes, including shooting at them.”
The statement added:
“Some City Council members have now started to release statements that try to support the officers’ heroic-actions. Others didn’t even bother addressing the community about two young officers nearly being murdered.
These politicians have agendas and have lost sight of the fact that an armed robber targeted community members and tried to kill a cop in this city. There should be no agendas, there should be no sides – everyone should be outraged by this brazen act.”
The statement concluded:
“The City Council statements talk about the complexity of police-community relations. They fail to take ownership for their contribution when they turned their backs on officers and on community members facing unprecedented levels of violent crime.
City Council members should be about this community and not about agendas. They need to start listening to the victims in this city and stop pandering for politics.”Do you want to join our private family of first responders and supporters?  Get unprecedented access to some of the most powerful stories that the media refuses to show you.  Proceeds get reinvested into having active, retired and wounded officers, their families and supporters tell more of these stories.  Click to check it out.

Robbery suspects caught on video wrestling victim to the ground at a gas station in police-defunded Washington DC
August 5th, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C.– According to authorities, five suspects are being sought after a robbery and beating of a victim at a D.C. gas station was captured on video. 
[embedded content]
The Metropolitan Police Department released the surveillance footage of the attack hoping that the public will help identify the suspects. Police stated that the incident began just after 11:10 p.m. on July 24th.
The footage appears to show three people surrounding a male near a parked car at at gas station in the northeast quadrant of the city.
One of the individuals is seen on a bicycle. As the victim begins to walk away, one of the suspects grabs him from behind while another appears to reach into his pants pockets.
The victim is then shoved to the ground and kicked several times. At that point, another suspect comes and appears to help the other two suspects as they appear to go through the victim’s pockets.

As the attack is happening, a person gets into the driver’s seat of the car where the confrontation initially took place and pulls away. The suspect on the bicycle watches a fifth person comes and appears to rob the victim as well.
All five suspects left the scene and left the victim on the ground. Before fleeing, video shows one of the attackers kick the victim once more.
According to data, as of Wednesday, August 4th, robberies are up 3 percent in the city with 1,049 being reported compared to 1,013 in the same time frame in 2020.
Amid an increase in violence across the city, a 31-year-old teacher and father of four was killed on Saturday, July 31st. The victim, Kervin Sanchez, was a teacher at Hope Tolson. His death comes as the city struggles to keep a grip on public safety.

Marvin Moore, a longtime friend of Sanchez, told Fox News’ Steve Doocy that the current climate in the city is “very troubling.” He added:
“It’s very worrisome to not be able to predict whether or not your loved one or your family member is going to return home to you after leaving outside of the house.”
He stated:
“We are in very devastating times and this is unlike anything that I’ve seen in my entire time growing up here in D.C.”
In an effort to combat the rise in violent crime in D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser proposed an $11 million package to hire 170 new officers to bolster the city’s police force.
However, the package that the city council approved only allocates $5 million for new officers.

In a recent statement, Bowser said:
“We need what we need. We need to hire officers as soon as we can and we need the council to understand that.”
In the month of July, D.C. reported three times more homicides than deaths from COVID-19, raising questions around the city’s priorities. Moore said:
“As a community, as a city, we have to figure it out. We have to find a way to create a better resolve. Look for alternative solutions to problem solving.”
He added:

Police-bashing, BLM-backing D.C. mayor suddenly says ‘defunding the police’ is a bad idea after latest shooting
May 21st, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC – The mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser, criticized the “defund the police” efforts being taken by the D.C. Council on May 19th following a shooting that occurred in the Shaw neighborhood the evening prior that has left a mother and son in critical condition.

On May 18th slightly before 7:00 p.m., a male subject had parked a rental scooter in the middle of the sidewalk along the 1500 block of 10th Street NW in the Shaw neighborhood.
The neighborhood is considered to be one of the more upper-class areas, with the likes of active construction going on around the block for new homes alongside side some pricey properties.
For reasons unknown, this parked scooter had caused some sort of an altercation between the male subject and at least one other adult that was among a group of other adults that had their children outside as well.
Witnesses say that during this altercation, the male subject pulled out a gun and started shooting – striking one woman and her four-year-old son.
No arrests have been made yet in the case, with officials saying that the suspect is a black male that was wearing a ski-mask mask during the shooting and fled the area on foot following the gunfire.  

D.C. police chief says argument over where scooter was parked at 10th and P streets NW led to a man shooting at a family, striking woman and child, critically injuring both. Chief said man shot an “innocent family.” Says: “The Metropolitan Police Department is coming for you.”
— Peter Hermann (@phscoop) May 19, 2021

One of the neighbors, retired U.S. Navy Admiral Roger Gilberton, has stated that he’d heard the gunfire go off and witnessed a group of people running in fear following the shooting:
“We heard about half a dozen shots and then just a few seconds after that there were five or six people running down P Street.”
Authorities say that at least four gunshots were recorded during the incident.
The two gunshot victims, who have not been identified by officials, were last reported as being in critical condition.
Following an event on May 19th, Mayor Bowser informed reporters inquiring about the investigation that police are “doing everything they can to catch the shooter, and to stop things like this from happening in the future by getting the guns out of the hands of people who have shown they are willing to use them.”
However, Mayor Bowser mentioned that the efforts being taken by the D.C. Council to “defund the police” is not helping the matter, pointing to how budget cuts enacted by the Council have impacted the police department’s ability to onboard much-needed officers.
Back in June of 2020, when calls to defund police departments were likely at their highest point, the D.C. Council voted to cut $15 million from the Metropolitan Police Department.

Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee did convey that the police are actively searching for the at-large suspect:
“The Metropolitan Police is coming for him, he should be ashamed of himself for what he did to this family tonight.
“And he has to be held accountable for his actions. The community demands it, I demand it, he has to be held accountable for his actions, that’s unacceptable.”
This is an ongoing investigation.

When it comes to the topic of defunding police, it turns out that it’s not even a popular notion in cities like Portland. 
Law Enforcement Today recently shared a report that shows that 75% of Portland residents do not support defunding the city’s police force. 
Here’s that previous report from earlier in May. 
_
PORTLAND, OR – Nearly one year since the “defund the police” movement began, a new poll has revealed that nearly 75% of Portland residents stated they do not support defunding the city’s police force. 

Amid calls to ‘defund the police,’ most Portland residents want police presence maintained or increased, poll finds https://t.co/OMmUGfyDfR
— D.R. Couric (@DRCouric) May 19, 2021

According to a recent poll commissioned by The Oregonian, three-fourths of Portland-area residents said that they do not want to see policing in the city dip below its current levels, with a several stating that they support an increase in police.
From April 30 to May 6, 2021, DHM Research conducted a survey of 600 residents in the Portland metro region. The survey consisted of 600 adult residents in the Portland metro region with half of them in the city of Portland.
When asked in the survey, “Do you think downtown Portland is more or less safe than it was 12 months ago?” 42% of those survey said that it is “much less safe” and only two percent stated it was “much safer.”
Fewer than a quarter of survey participants in Portland and even less among suburban residents, believe that there should be fewer police officers. This important findings coming as activists and some civic leaders in Portland continue to demand further reductions in the police force.
Survey participant Brandon Lane, 61, said that it makes sense to beef up the city’s police force amid a large spike in shootings, a homelessness and addiction crisis, and a downtown battered by a pandemic and months of destructive protests.
Lane stated:
“I’m not sure that it needs to be drastically higher,  but if we defund or reduce the headcount any further, we’re likely to be inviting bigger problems.”
https://twitter.com/TX_VisionShock/status/1394124832208572420
Fox News reported that the poll found that in addition to 75% of respondents who disapprove of the city’s handling of the homelessness situation, 68% also stated that they are not happy with how protests and riots have been handled.
Residents surveyed about the city’s downtown said that they plan to visit less frequently, mainly citing the homelessness and rioting that has plagued the area for nearly a year.
Respondents to the poll used words like “dirty,” “trash,” “riots,” and “unsafe” to describe the heart of the city, which appears to have deteriorated during the COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest of the past year.
Downtown Portland, once a cultural and tourist center, is now filled with homeless tents, smashed windows, graffiti, trash, and boarded-up businesses. 
The city has yet to quell continued destruction caused by smaller groups who go through the city purporting to demonstrate for racial justice, smashing windows, and tagging buildings in the process.
Residents also expressed frustration with the apparent lack of arrests related to the destruction. Respondent Laurie Lago, 75, who lives near where the protests have been centered, said:
“There seems in the last year to be this permission to do violence.”

In response to the survey results, Daryl Tuner, the executive director of the Portland Police Association, the union that represents the city’s rank-and-file officers, said:
“Residents want to be safe and protected and they don’t have that feeling right now.”
He added that City Council trimmed the police budget by $15 million during summer 2020. He stated:
“This message is clearly not being heard by Portland’s elected leaders, who only listen to those who talk the loudest.”
After the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office refused to file charges against many of the rioters arrested for assaulting police and destroying property during 2020, federal prosecutors stepped up at the urging of then-President Donald Trump and filed charges against 97 suspects.
However, under President Joe Biden’s administration, 58 of those cases have been deferred or outright dismissed. Felony assaults on federal officers were the nexus for 16 of the 31 deferred cases.
Seven suspects plead guilty, but reportedly, only one will serve any prison time. Former acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chard Wolf, said in a statement:
“It’s offensive to all the men and women who risked their lives in Portland for 90 to 120 days or even longer in some cases, being attached night after night after night.”

75% of Portland residents don’t want decrease in law enforcement presence despite calls to defund the police https://t.co/PxgRyFeXZB
— Newsweek (@Newsweek) May 18, 2021

In 2020, when the city cut $15 million from the Portland Police Bureau’s (PPB) budget, the move did away with school resource officers, the Gun Violence Reduction Team, and the Transit Division Program.
The Gun Violence Reduction Team was later brought back to help combat the surge in gun violence, but there was no additional funds to help support it.
In the meantime, city lawmakers dumped $6 million into adding 24 unarmed park rangers to patrol neighborhoods and parks as well as to help fund community organizations seeking to address violence in the community.

Supreme Court Won’t Block COVID Vaccine Mandate for Christian Health Care Workers

Supreme Court Won’t Block COVID Vaccine Mandate for Christian Health Care Workers

The Supreme Court today rejected an emergency appeal from thousands of Christian health care workers in Maine, who are opposed to Governor Janet Mills’ mandate that they get the COVID vaccine or be fired from their jobs.
More than 2,000 health care workers filed suit against Governor Janet Mills, health officials of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and five of Maine’s largest hospital systems.
Mills’ executive order purports to override both Title VII employment law and the First Amendment Free Exercise clause. Her discriminatory order mandates the shots and states health care workers cannot raise religious exemptions claims. Her mandate requires that health care workers get the COVID vaccine by October 29 or lose their jobs.
As AP reports, “The opponents’ underlying case challenging the mandate will now go forward before the appellate court in Boston. In denying the emergency motion, Breyer said that Liberty Counsel, the organization that sued Mills over the vaccine mandate on behalf of health care workers who have religious objections to it, may seek an emergency injunction again if the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules in the state’s favor or does not issue a decision by Oct. 29.”
“A three-judge panel in Boston on Friday rejected a similar emergency motion that appealed the ruling of a federal judge in Maine who declined to halt the vaccine mandate. But the appellate court fast-tracked the case so that a detailed ruling could be issued before the enforcement deadline in 10 days,” it added.
On August 12, 2021, Governor Mills announced that Maine will require health care workers to accept or receive one of the three, currently available COVID-19 shots to remain employed in the healthcare profession. This edict would force numerous doctors, nurses, medical professionals, and other health care workers to choose between the exercise of their sincerely held religious beliefs and their employment. Governor Mills and state officials explicitly and illegally claim that federal law does not apply to health care workers in Maine and that no protections or considerations will be given to their religious beliefs. The governor originally stated they must receive a COVID-19 injection by October 1 and has now extended the deadline for compliance to October 29.
Gov. Mills has threatened to revoke the licenses of all health care employers who fail to mandate that all employees receive the COVID-19 injection, despite the unconstitutional fact that she is discriminating against religious employees who decline vaccination while favoring those who decline for secular, medical reasons.
LifeNews is now on GETTR. Please follow us for the latest pro-life news
For example, there is discriminatory treatment between federal employees and other health care workers in Maine. The Department of Veterans Affairs at the VA Maine Healthcare System in Augusta “permits and freely grants exemptions and accommodations to healthcare employees with sincerely held religious objections to mandatory vaccinations.” Employees are merely required to check a box requesting a religious exemption and are granted accommodation.
On the other hand, one health care worker is employed at the federal VA facility and was given a religious accommodation. However, this same employee was also a per diem employee at Eastport Memorial Nursing Home where she requested a religious accommodation and was denied and discriminatorily fired. Ironically, these two facilities are located nine miles apart. Therefore, according to Maine’s governor, somewhere along that route the law seems to disappear.
Accommodations for patient-facing health care workers with sincerely held religious objections to the shots cannot mean one thing in most states and not in the vast majority of Maine. This is evident with employers granting accommodations to health care employees in Oregon, California, Washington, New Mexico, Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Florida. These health care providers include top education and research hospitals such as University of Colorado, University of Chicago, University of Maryland, Temple University; some of the largest health care providers in the nation including Kaiser Permanente, Trinity Health, and Advocate Aurora Healthcare with hundreds of thousands of employees providing patient-facing care and accommodating the subset of those with sincere religious beliefs; and mid-size and smaller health care providers that have also readily accommodated patient-facing personnel with sincere religious beliefs.
In addition, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act clearly requires that every employer with over 15 employees must provide religious accommodations “unless an employer demonstrates that he is unable to reasonably accommodate an employee’s or prospective employee’s religious observance or practice without undue hardship.” For months, health care employees have worked every day with reasonable accommodations and history underscores that the state and the employers can continue to provide accommodations.
On September 14, the Northern District Court of New York granted a temporary restraining order for all health care workers against the state’s unconstitutional attempt to ignore federal law and remove religious exemptions and accommodations from unlawful COVID shot mandates for health care workers. Governor Mills’ mandate is identical to New York’s in its removal of religious accommodations, and its fate should be the same.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Governor Mills is clearly discriminating against health care workers with sincerely held religious beliefs. She cannot override federal law and dictate that they must inject an experimental substance into their bodies. The Constitution does not disappear across state lines. All Maine health care workers have the legal right to request reasonable accommodation for their sincerely held religious beliefs and forcing COVID shots without exemptions is unlawful.”

Governor Ron DeSantis: He Is Not Who He Wants You To Believe That He Is – As The Show Goes On

If people would simply take a step back and pull the curtains open concerning what it is that they are sold by the mainstream media when it comes to the corruption in government, they would actually be respected once again by a dark world (Proverbs 18:17).
Christians, patriots and conservatives are to be fruit inspectors, and if we were true to our God, in many cases, we would lay the axe to the root of many of the corrupt trees (politicians) that are sold to us as the good (Matthew 7:16).
One such politician that plays up to the people under false pretenses, of course, is Ron Desantis, the governor from the state of Florida.

Ron likes to sell himself as the people’s man, fighting for his constituents (Ephesians 4:14).

Gov. Ron DeSantis has pledged to fight the Biden administration over federal vaccine mandates.
“I am offended that a police officer could potentially lose their job,” he said on Thursday.
DeSantis has opposed broad vaccine requirements and mask mandates in K-12 public schools.
Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, a vocal opponent of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, on Thursday said that the state will fight the federal government in court over legislation regarding such requirements.

DeSantis, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, has spoken out forcefully against vaccination rules placed on employers, and last month said that President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate was a violation of Florida law.

“Let’s not have Biden come in and effectively take away — threaten to take away — the jobs of people who have been working hard throughout this entire pandemic,” DeSantis said during a news conference this week. “I am offended that a police officer could potentially lose their job.”

As a matter of fact, we find Texas Governor Greg Abbott playing this same dangerous game with the people’s freedoms by telling them the opposite of what it was that they did.

Most recently, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had said that Vaccine Passports were unacceptable. So, he created a bill to prevent their implementation, not that he had to do this because they are unconstitutional, but as you know, the show must go on. However, what we discovered is that he and Texas Governor Gregg Abbott are doing the opposite of what the bills were sold to their constituents as.
Health Impact news recently exposed the both of them for who it is that they are!
Governors of the two largest Republican states in the U.S. have recently taken political action to restrict or prohibit “vaccine passports” as a means of discriminating against private citizens who choose not get one of the COVID-19 bioweapon shots.
Does this mean that Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis are against the bioweapon shots that have killed tens of thousands of people, and are now being injected into children?
Hardly. In fact, both these two governors, and ALL governors in the United States right now, regardless of political affiliation, are accomplices to mass murder!Unless I missed some news somewhere, once the FDA and CDC allowed emergency use authorization to start injecting these bioweapon COVID-19 shots into children, NONE of the U.S. Governors took action in their state to stop the mass injections of children with these bioweapon shots, even though they have the authority to do so.
Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed into law SB 2006 which “Prohibits government, business & educational institutions from requiring proof of COVID vaccination.”There are reports now circulating in the alternative media from those who have actually read the bill, and what they have discovered is that while the bill prohibits discrimination based on COVID-19 “vaccination” status, it allows law enforcement to forcibly vaccinate its citizens, as well as lock them away in quarantine at the direction of “State Health Officers.”
Kelen McBreen, writing for News Wars reports:
An overlooked section of Florida Senate Bill 2006, put into law by the state legislature and Governor Ron DeSantis on May 3, 2021, allows government officials to forcibly vaccinate citizens.Ironically, the bill was widely supported as it was allegedly intended to ban vaccine passports in Florida.
“In Florida, your personal choice regarding vaccinations will be protected and no business or government entity will be able to deny you services based on your decision,” DeSantis told Floridians.
While the legislature does prohibit private businesses and government entities from asking for proof of a COVID vaccination, it also allows the state to vaccinate citizens “by any means necessary”.
Conclusion: Friends, he is not at war with treasonous Joe Biden. He is pushing forth his unlawful agenda. They are not at war with each other. They are in it together.

HIDIN’ BIDEN: Joe to Appear on CNN Town Hall with ‘Invitation-Only Audience’

Joe Biden raised eyebrows across the country this week when CNN confirmed their televised town hall with the President will feature questions from an “invitation-only audience.”
“President Biden is set to participate in a CNN town hall in Baltimore this week where he will face questions from an ‘invitation-only audience’ — as his administration juggles uniting the Democratic Party, a worsening border crisis and supply-chain bottlenecks creating empty shelves and threatening the on-time arrival of holiday gifts,” reports the New York Post.

“Late last week, Democrats in the Senate were reportedly getting frustrated with Biden over his ongoing negotiations with Sens. Joe Machin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), which are stalling the passage of two key pieces of legislation — a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a massive spending package — that make up the core of his agenda,” adds the newspaper.
Biden faced growing criticism in recent weeks for refusing to take questions from the press after a series of addresses on the economy and COVID.

Joe Biden is Spending More Time Promoting Abortion Than Solving the Border Crisis or Inflation

Joe Biden is Spending More Time Promoting Abortion Than Solving the Border Crisis or Inflation

On Monday, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court asking the Court to block Texas SB 8, also known as “The Heartbeat Act.” The Texas law is designed to protect unborn children whose hearts have begun to beat.
“This law has already saved hundreds of lives since going into effect,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life Committee (NRLC). “In no other area, from Kabul to the border crisis to inflation, has President Biden called for a whole-of-government response except in supporting abortion. Clearly, abortion is the single most important thing to the Biden administration. And the abortion industry’s unfettered onslaught against the most vulnerable among us—unborn babies—is shocking.”
Tobias continued, “The Biden administration’s unconditional support of the abortion industry shows just how far pro-abortion Democrats will go to curry favor with abortionists and abortion supporters.”

On September 1, the U.S. Supreme Court made the decision not to enjoin the law but to instead allow lower courts to explore the “complex and novel” questions the law raises. Their decision not to block implementation of the law allows the lower courts to examine the unique legal questions presented by this case. The High Court’s decision is consistent with proper legal procedures involving issues presented to them.
The request by the Biden administration to vacate the stay comes after the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit stayed a preliminary injunction against the law. The preliminary injunction was issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman on October 6 in response to a request from the Biden administration asking for the law to be blocked.

WATCH: Video proof that CRT being taught in Ohio classroom after Superintendent told parents it wasn’t…

A student at Franklin Woods Intermediate School in Ohio secretly recorded their teacher teaching the class about Critical Race Theory via a book called “Stamped”, which was written by Ibram X. Kendi and several others:

 Mythinformed MKE posted this on Twitter last night:
SCOOP: Secretly recorded video taken in 6th grade classroom shows Critical Race Theory being taught in Franklin Woods Intermediate School.The superintendent has repeatedly stated to parents, CRT is not being taught at the school. Yet, clearly it is.
If you watch the video, you’ll hear the teacher divide people into three groups: racist, anti-racist, and assimilationist. The teacher describes herself as anti-racist, meaning she’s an activist working to end racism. She defines assimilationist as someone who isn’t a racist but also doesn’t work to end racism. Which is obviously bad even though she doesn’t say that explicitly that I can hear.
Either way, the point is that CRT is being taught in the school despite the superintendent saying otherwise. Which means he doesn’t know what’s going on in his classroom or he’s lying about it.

Virginia Is A Litmus Test Of What’s Going On In The Country

John Fredericks talks about the upcoming Virginia gubernatorial election with host Steve Bannon.
“This is such an important race to everybody, I just got to tell everybody in Virginia, if you know anybody there, get out and vote. Vote for Youngkin, vote for the Republican ticket. Vote early. We want you to vote early, don’t worry about your vote getting stolen. If you vote early it will not get stolen. It will be counted. And here’s what voting early does. It saves the Youngkin campaign resources in chasing down high-propensity Republican voters that haven’t voted, so they can spend that money somewhere else.”

Virginia Energy Giant Funds Fraudulent Attacks On Youngkin From The Right

Virginia Energy Giant Funds Fraudulent Attacks On Youngkin From The Right

Virginia’s largest power company is funneling money to a Democrat-aligned political action committee to attack GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin from the right ahead of the state’s upcoming gubernatorial election.
According to an Axios report, Dominion Energy’s political action committee has “donated $200,000 to a murky political group called Accountability Virginia PAC, a group with ties to prominent Democrats that’s been running ads attacking Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin from the right.”
Moreover, the report notes how Dominion has provided “four cash infusions for Accountability Virginia totaling $250,000 from July through September,” with the company recalling “one $50,000 payment in August.” The amount represents the company’s largest donation to any statewide political committee in Virginia this year — despite Youngkin opponent Terry McAuliffe having sworn that he would not take contributions from Dominion.
In its bid to weaken Youngkin’s support among conservative voters in the commonwealth, the Accountability Virginia PAC has been running social media ads questioning the Republican candidate’s record on gun rights.
“While the NRA backs Donald Trump, they REFUSED to endorse Glenn Youngkin,” one of the ads says. “We can’t trust Glenn Youngkin on guns. Youngkin should tell us the truth about where he stands.”
“If we can’t trust Glenn Youngkin on guns, what can we trust him on? Youngkin should tell us the truth about where he stands,” another states.
While initially defending their donations in a statement to Axios, Dominion has seemingly backtracked, with CEO Robert Blue telling employees in an internal email obtained by The Washington Post that the company is asking that the Accountability Virginia PAC return its donations.
“Although familiar with the Accountability Virginia PAC sponsors, we failed to vet sufficiently the scope of their intended activities,” Blue said. “In as much, we have asked that our contributions be returned.”
The attacks against Youngkin come amid a closely contested gubernatorial race, which public polling has shown to be a dead heat. According to a newly released survey from the Trafalgar Group, Youngkin holds a less than 1 point lead over Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe (48.4 to 47.5 percent), with 2.8 percent of voters still undecided. The results fall within the poll’s 2.96 percent margin of error.

Youngkin has razor thin lead in #VAGov race:

Supreme Court Will Fast Track Decision on Texas Abortion Ban, Pro-Life Groups Expect Another Victory

Supreme Court Will Fast Track Decision on Texas Abortion Ban, Pro-Life Groups Expect Another Victory

The Supreme Court has agreed to fast-track a decision on whether to block the Texas abortion ban while lawsuits from Joe Biden and abortion companies continue in lower courts.
Yesterday, Joe Biden’s administration officially asked the Supreme Court to block the Texas abortion ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortions. Now, to expedite the request to consider blocking the ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortion.
Texas has until noon Thursday to file its legal papers explaining why the Supreme Court should keep the abortion ban in place while the legal challenge proceeds and pro-life groups expect the nation’s highest court to not block the ban for a second time.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz told LifeNews she expects Biden to lose his request to block the ban: “We are excited to continue saving hundreds of lives through the Texas Heartbeat Act. However, the battle is not finished. We are confident Texas will ultimately defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
As LifeNews.com reported late last week, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Biden’s demand to block the ban. Previously, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who was appointed by Barack Obama, sided with the Biden administration’s Justice Department, which sued the state, arguing Texas’ law was unconstitutional because it went against Roe v. Wade.

Then, the 5th Circuit rejected Biden’s demand, voting 2-1 to allow the ban to stay in place as the underlying lawsuit continues. That was the third time it has allowed the law to stay in effect, responding to various pro-abortion legal challenges.
Yesterday, Biden officials called the ban “plainly unconstitutional” even though no right to abortion exists in the Constitution.
“S.B. 8 is plainly unconstitutional under this Court’s precedents,” the DOJ’s filing reads. “Texas has not seriously argued otherwise.”
“Texas’s insistence that no party can bring a suit challenging S.B. 8 amounts to an assertion that the federal courts are powerless to halt the State’s ongoing nullification of federal law,” the DOJ wrote. “That proposition is as breathtaking as it is dangerous.”
Monday’s filing marks the second time that the Supreme Court will weigh in on blocking the ban temporarily. Last month, in a legal challenge from abortion businesses, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to not block the ban while the lawsuit continued. Texas has until Thursday to file its response to Biden’s legal papers.
In its previous ruling, the Supreme Court said the pro-abortion groups did not provide sufficient reasons to justify blocking the law.
“The applicants now before us have raised serious questions regarding the constitutionality of the Texas law at issue,” the majority wrote. “But their application also presents complex and novel antecedent procedural questions on which they have not carried their burden. … In light of such issues, we cannot say the applicants have met their burden to prevail in an injunction or stay application.”
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett made up the majority in the decision. The justices who dissented were Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. Kagan, Breyer and Sotomayor also wrote separate dissents slamming the court for allowing Texas to restrict abortions.
If the Supreme Court decides to not block the ban, it will likely stay in place until December, when the 5th Circuit has scheduled oral arguments on Biden’s request to block it. That means thousands more unborn children will be saved from aboritons, as many women decide to keep their baby instead of ending their child’s life. Meanwhile, pregnancy centers that provide actual help and support for pregnant women are also experiencing higher numbers of calls and visit and are saving more babies from abortion.
As soon as Judge Pitman issued his decision putting the ban on hold, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed.
“We disagree with the Court’s decision and have already taken steps to immediately appeal it to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals,” Paxton wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. “The sanctity of human life is, and will always be, a top priority for me.”
Typically, state governments enforce pro-life laws and, when the laws are challenged, judges can block the states from enforcing them in a preliminary injunction. However, the Texas law leaves enforcement up to individual people. So, judges are considering whether they can stop all private citizens from enforcing the law – especially without allowing private citizens the chance to defend themselves in court first.
Pitman’s order prohibited state court judges and court clerks from accepting lawsuits that the law allows. That made it so some abortion businesses continued killing babies in abortions while others worried they would still not be able to do so legally because the law, even if blocked, still allows lawsuits against anyone killing babies in abortions or assisting them.
Attorneys for Texas said Biden’s Department of Justice is being unfair by asking the court to block “absent third parties” from enforcing the law “without letting them be heard.”
The Texas law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Thus far, the courts have refused to temporarily block the law, and as many as 3,000 unborn babies already have been spared from abortion.
On Friday, attorneys for the Department of Justice argued that the law is unconstitutional and the federal government has an interest in seeing it blocked.
Then, Judge Pitman issued the ruling they were hoping for and endorsed abortion in the process.
“The United States is substantially likely to succeed on the merits of its claims. It is substantially likely that S.B. 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge wrote. “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution. That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”
In comments to LifeNews.com, Texas Right to Life blasted the opinion:

The ruling is wildly broad, preventing Texas state officials from enforcing the law, including the shocking order to block every Texas judge and court clerk from even receiving lawsuits filed by citizens against the abortion industry. The provision blocking lawmakers is entirely unnecessary since the language of the Texas Heartbeat Act already prohibits government officials from enforcing the policy. However, Pitman’s effort to obstruct state judges and court clerks from fulfilling their lawful duties is astonishing.
This is the legacy of Roe v. Wade: Judges catering to the abortion industry, crafting a conclusion first and then searching the depths of legal literature for a rationale later.
Pro-Life attorneys are likely to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals immediately, in which we expect a fair hearing.
Until a higher court intervenes, the disappointing reality is that Pitman’s ruling will likely stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from being enforced.

Texas Right to Life maintained that abortionists could still be sued for violating the abortion ban, despite the ruling.

However, even with this ruling, abortionists can still be held liable for any abortions they commit in violation of the law.
The Texas Heartbeat Act states that an individual being sued under the law cannot claim as an affirmative defense that they were acting under the protection of a court order that had since been reversed or overturned:
“Notwithstanding any other law, the following [is] not a defense to an action brought under this section… a defendant’s reliance on any court decision that has been overruled on appeal or by a subsequent court, even if that court decision had not been overruled when the defendant engaged in conduct that violates this subchapter;” (Section 171.208(e)(3), Texas Health and Safety Code)Thus, those who aid or abet abortions, even if currently permitted by this ruling, could eventually be sued for their actions today.

“Texas Right to Life is dedicated to holding the abortion industry accountable to the fullest extent possible under the law. We are confident that the Texas Heartbeat Act will ultimately withstand this legal challenge and succeed where other states’ heartbeat bills have not,” the pro-life group concluded.
The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List also commented to LifeNews on Judge Pitman’s decision.
“The people of Texas speaking through their state legislators acted to protect unborn children with beating hearts, who are as human as you and me,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Heartbeat Act is estimated to have saved more than 4,700 babies since it took effect over a month ago. Now an unelected judge has interfered with the clearly expressed will of Texans. For two generations, the U.S. Supreme Court has tied the hands of states to enact laws protecting unborn children and their mothers. It is time to restore this right to the people and update our laws.”
Judge Pitman’s ruling came roughly one month after the law went into effect on Sept. 1. The Supreme Court declined to block its enactment, leaving the law in place while litigation against it continues in lower courts.
“Texas has made clear it does not want to follow the Supreme Court‘s abortion precedents,” federal government attorney Brian Netter said during Friday’s hearing.
He asked the judge to issue an injunction blocking Texas and “all of its officers, employees and agents, including private parties” from suing abortionists who violate the law, CNN reports.
“The state resorted to an unprecedented scheme of vigilante justice that was designed to scare abortion providers and others who might help women exercise their constitutional rights, while skirting judicial review,” Netter said.
However, Will Thompson, an attorney representing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Office, told the judge that the federal government is using “inflammatory rhetoric” to attack the law, and the heartbeat law is not the only legislation that allows private enforcement.
“This is not some kind of vigilante scheme. It’s a scheme that uses the normal and lawful process,” Thompson said.
Netter contended that private citizens really are just acting for the state as a proxy to enforce the law. The judge asked Thompson about this claim.
Afterward, Texas Right to Life slammed the Biden administration’s arguments as “maniacal” and “entirely unprecedented.”
Kimberlyn Schwartz, director of media and communications, summarized the hearing: “Ultimately, the Justice Department is asking the court to toss out all logic and judicial precedent in order to cater to the abortion industry. The Biden administration’s case is desperate and far-fetched, and we expect an impartial court to declare the lawsuit without merit.”
The Biden administration has taken multiple actions to thwart Texas’s efforts to save unborn babies from abortion. Along with the lawsuit, it also set aside $10 million – taxpayers’ money – to provide grants to the abortion industry in Texas and make additional Title X family planning funds available.
In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.
While abortion activists say some women are traveling to other states for abortions, they admit that others are having their babies instead.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
Texas Right to Life encouraged women seeking pregnancy help to visit its website for a list of resources. Find it here.
Polls show Americans support heartbeat laws. An April poll by the University of Texas-Austin found that 49 percent of Texans support making abortions illegal after six weeks of pregnancy, while 41 percent oppose it. In 2019, a national Hill-HarrisX survey also found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. Whether the law will remain in effect or ultimately be upheld as constitutional in court remains uncertain, but pro-life leaders are hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority.

Campaign in PANIC! McAuliffe claims he didn't MEAN parents shouldn't tell schools what to teach, trips SPECTACULARLY over his own words (and RECORD)

You know, the fact Terry McAuliffe is releasing ads in the last two weeks before the election trying to DEFEND himself doesn’t sound like a winning or positive move for his campaign. Not to mention trying to pretend he didn’t LITERALLY say he doesn’t believe parents should have a say in what their children are taught when WE HEARD HIM SAY IT, and claiming Youngkin is taking him out of context is just pathetic.Look at how desperate Terry is for people to believe he cares SO MUCH about our kids.“That’s why I want you to hear this from me, Glenn Youngkin is taking my words out of context,” @TerryMcAuliffe says in a new ad pic.twitter.com/2ke4pyiD8x— Brandon Jarvis (@Jaaavis) October 18, 2021Excuse us, we just threw up in our mouths a little.Does anyone really buy this?

Mike Pence Who Received Mysterious Coin For Betraying Trump And Sealed America’s Fate, Talks About Biden Evil

Mike Pence Who Received Mysterious Coin For Betraying Trump And Sealed America’s Fate, Talks About Biden Evil

Please Follow us on Gab, Minds, Telegram, Rumble, Gab TV, GETTR

Former Vice President Mike Pence took a mysterious coin after his betrayal of President Trump when counting electoral votes last January. It was entirely reasonable for Pence to send the electors back to the states as several state legislatures requested as even then the evidence of massive election fraud was rampant.

Pence did nothing of the sort and betrayed Trump and the nation

On FBN’s “Kudlow,” Pence now talks of the evil consequences of the Biden administration’s actions in Afghanistan as he seeks to rehabilitate his political career.

It won’t work Mike.

“Larry, weakness arouses evil, and the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan this August was a disgrace,” he said. “And it was a disservice to the generation of Americans who wore the uniform who served, especially those who sacrificed in Afghanistan, defending freedom. But there is no question that there was strategic implications to that disaster as well. And it is — it’s one of the reasons why I — I have spent time with some families of our service members who fell among the 13 at the attack at Kabul Airport.”

“And I just have — I have told them, and I tell anyone looking on today, nothing of what this administration did in mishandling our withdrawal of Afghanistan will ever diminish the honor that’s owed to them and their families and all those who served, but now, more than ever, we need to send a message of strength to the Asia Pacific to stand with our treaty allies, with Japan, with South Korea, with Australia,” he added. “And, yes, we need to live up to the Taiwan Relations Act and make it clear to China that the United States is going to uphold our treaty commitments in that region. We have to — we have to make up for — sadly, we have to make up for the strategic implications of that disastrous withdrawal. And my hope is this administration will do just that.”

It takes evil to know evil Mike.

Nebraska Education Department Wants to Push Sex and Abortion on Kids

Nebraska Education Department Wants to Push Sex and Abortion on Kids

Nebraska parents are speaking out against a proposed sex education curriculum that would promote risky sexual behavior and abortions in their public schools.
The backlash from parents and pro-life Gov. Pete Ricketts recently prompted the Nebraska Department of Education to take out “specific mentions of transgenderism, hormone therapy, reproductive care, and oral and anal sex,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
But parents still say the proposed curriculum is not appropriate for children. And a new investigation by the Washington Free Beacon found that Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups were involved in its development.
The Nebraska Department of Education developed the proposed curriculum earlier this year with the help of an advisory committee. One member was a Friends of Planned Parenthood board member and former Planned Parenthood employee, according to the Beacon.
In March, the department published its first draft. The curriculum called for first graders to be taught about gender identity, seventh graders about oral and anal sex and eighth graders to learn about abortion.
Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter. Follow @LifeNewsHQ
The draft closely followed the National Sexuality Education Standards, a report written by pro-abortion groups with input from Planned Parenthood. Among other things, it instructs teachers to tell children that an abortion is just a “medicinal or surgical procedure that ends a pregnancy” and show them how to find abortion facilities in their area.
Radical pro-abortion groups are lobbying to have these sex education “standards” taught across the country, and some states already are.
In Nebraska, the investigation resulting from parents’ outrage provides some insight into just how closely these groups work behind the scenes to get their agenda into public schools – even in conservative, pro-life states.
Here’s more from the report:

In a May fact sheet, titled “Points of Clarification,” NDE insisted the curriculum “was not written by activists” and that “Planned Parenthood is not funding or helping to write the Nebraska Health Education Standards.” Internal communications, obtained by the Free Beacon from a concerned parent, paint a very different picture. Emails and text messages from elected board of education representatives, NDE employees, and advisory board members show that activists were not only closely involved but disparaged parents and froze out teachers who were supposed to write the curriculum.

The department also rejected multiple requests to allow experts with Catholic views to participate in 28-member advisory committee, according to the report.
Jeremy Ekeler, of the Nebraska Catholic Conference, said he proposed three different individuals with expert experience on the matter to the department. After delays, he said the department told him that the advisory committee was full.
“To know that a tax-funded state entity boxed out the beliefs of such a huge portion of our population is sadly ironic,” Ekeler told the Beacon. “The [department] has preached inclusion and diversity through this whole thing and then they excluded anybody who doesn’t fit with their agenda.”
However, the department did cave into pressure to add a Planned Parenthood advocate to the committee, according to the investigation.
Here’s more:

Internal emails show that Deborah Neary, a state board of education member, pressured the [department] to include Lisa Schulze, a Friends of Planned Parenthood board member and former Planned Parenthood employee, in the curriculum draft process. “I am very disappointed that none of the folks that I recommended to participate in the Nebraska Department of Education Standard Writing Team were selected,” Neary said in an email. Schulze and two other activists—the executive director of OutNebraska and a local professor dedicated to the “intersection of sexuality and social justice”—requested by Neary were eventually added to the advisory team, which provided feedback on the standards to the writing team.

Planned Parenthood boasts of being the largest provider of sex education in the United States. The billion-dollar abortion chain also aborts more unborn babies than any other group in the U.S., including about 354,000 last year.
The National Sex Education Standards report thanks Planned Parenthood for providing materials and writings as well as Planned Parenthood national director of education Sonya Norsworthy for her “valuable contributions to and feedback on drafts.”
The standards promote sex and undermine parental guidance. They tell young children: “No one else is qualified to label or judge another person’s sexual identity, including their sexual orientation or gender identity, and it is important that the language and terms young people use to identify themselves is respected by the adults in their lives.”
In eighth grade, students are told that getting an STD is “nothing to be embarrassed about,” and, in sixth grade, students are taught that touching someone’s breasts or genitals “inside clothes” still “may be” considered abstinence, according to the curriculum.
The Illinois legislature recently voted to require the sex education standards be taught in every public school in the state, and the Austin Independent School District in Texas is using them, too.

18 States Support Texas Abortion Ban in Federal Court

18 States Support Texas Abortion Ban in Federal Court

On Thursday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit overturned Federal District Court’s Judge Robert Pitman preliminary injunction against the Texas Heartbeat Law and allowed the continued enforcement of the Texas law.
Prior to the third ruling in Texas’s favor, the Biden-Harris Department of Justice announced that it intends to ask the Supreme Court to vacate the stay. And it did so this morning.
Last week, just prior to the 5th District Court’s decision, Indiana’s Attorney General Todd Rokita led an 18-state effort to protect Texas’ pro-life law. He said the federal appeals court decision “bodes well” for other states’ efforts to defend their sovereign authority.
“This pro-life win for Texas is also a win for Indiana,” Attorney General Rokita said. “And here in Indiana, we will continue to vigorously defend state laws that protect the sanctity of unborn life and the health of pregnant women.”

In its amicus brief, Attorney General Rokita argues

The order below threatens to expose every State in the Union to suit by the federal government whenever the U.S. Attorney General deems a state law to violate some constitutional right of someone, somewhere. Critically, the district court enjoined everyone in the world from enforcing all of S.B. 8 not on the basis of any legal right the federal government itself holds, but on the ground the law violates the putative “Fourteenth Amendment substantive due process right[] to pre-viability abortions,” which is, of course, a “‘right of the individual.’”

Rokita argues that

this case does not permit, much less require, the Court to address S.B. 8, but instead presents a legal question of considerable significance for federalism and the separation of powers—whether the Attorney General has inherent authority to challenge state laws as violative of individual constitutional rights even absent congressional authorization. And every relevant precedential and historical authority points to the same conclusion: The Attorney General has no authority to act as a roving reviser of state law, challenging as unconstitutional any rule with which he disagrees. Congress has repeatedly refused to grant him such authority; this Court should refuse to do so as well. …
Allowing the Attorney General to seek invalidation of any legal rule he believes violates individuals’ constitutional rights would amount to “government by injunction,” a practice “anathematic to the American judicial tradition.”

South Carolina Goes to Court to Fight for Abortion Ban Saving Babies With Beating Hearts

South Carolina Goes to Court to Fight for Abortion Ban Saving Babies With Beating Hearts

The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has set the week of December 6 to hear the South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Abortion Protection Act that is being challenged by Planned Parenthood and currently enjoined by a local federal judge.
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has tentatively calendared the South Carolina case for oral arguments about a week after the U.S. Supreme Court considers a similar measure in Mississippi. A judge has blocked South Carolina’s law pending the outcome of a challenge to Mississippi’s new abortion law.
Planned Parenthood is suing South Carolina over the measure, which requires doctors to perform ultrasounds to check for a so-called “fetal heartbeat.” If cardiac activity is detected, the abortion can only be performed if the pregnancy was caused by rape or incest, or if the mother’s life is in danger.
Lineup of cases
The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a 5th Circuit ruling against the Texas Fetal Heartbeat law that now is in effect and saving unborn babies’ lives, at least temporarily. The Texas fetal heartbeat law allows anyone to sue an abortionist who aborts a child with a detectable beating heart. The mother is immune.
On December 1, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in which the high court will consider one argument: Can states pass laws protecting unborn children before “viability”? Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch will argue that Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (the two U.S. Supreme Court cases upholding legal abortion) are indefensible and should be rejected.
Follow LifeNews on the MeWe social media network for the latest pro-life news free from Facebook’s censorship!
A week later, the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the South Carolina fetal heartbeat case. “This appeal involves the limited power of federal courts to enjoin enforcement of state law,” begins the 52-page appellants’’ brief filed by S.C. Governor Henry McMaster. “Through several means,” the brief continues, “the South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act advances South Carolina’s ‘legitimate interests from the outset of pregnancy in protecting the health of the woman and the life of the’ unborn.”
McMaster’s brief assert that Planned Parenthood filed its lawsuit before the governor “even signed the Act into law.” U.S. District Judge Mary G. Lewis, an Obama appointee, “substituted [her] own assessment for the [S.C.] General Assembly’s judgement and the Act’s plain text,” the argument continues. She erred in failing to uphold parts of the law that provide critical information to the pregnant woman and that “many states have passed – and courts have upheld.”
The South Carolina law requires the abortionist to provide the woman an opportunity to see the ultrasound and to hear the fetal heartbeat if she so chooses. Informed consent laws have been consistently upheld by the courts.

Joe Biden Asks Supreme Court to Block Texas Abortion Ban, Which Has Saved Thousands of Babies

Joe Biden Asks Supreme Court to Block Texas Abortion Ban, Which Has Saved Thousands of Babies

Today, Joe Biden’s administration officially asked the Supreme Court to block the Texas abortion ban, which has saved thousands of babies from abortions.
As LifeNews.com reported late last week, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Biden’s demand to block the ban. Previously, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who was appointed by Barack Obama, sided with the Biden administration’s Justice Department, which sued the state, arguing Texas’ law was unconstitutional because it went against Roe v. Wade.
Then, the 5th Circuit rejected Biden’s demand, voting 2-1 to allow the ban to stay in place as the underlying lawsuit continues. That was the third time it has allowed the law to stay in effect, responding to various pro-abortion legal challenges.
Today, Biden officials called the ban “plainly unconstitutional” even though no right to abortion exists in the Constitution.
“S.B. 8 is plainly unconstitutional under this Court’s precedents,” the DOJ’s filing reads. “Texas has not seriously argued otherwise.”
“Texas’s insistence that no party can bring a suit challenging S.B. 8 amounts to an assertion that the federal courts are powerless to halt the State’s ongoing nullification of federal law,” the DOJ wrote. “That proposition is as breathtaking as it is dangerous.”
Monday’s filing marks the second time that the Supreme Court will weigh in on blocking the ban temporarily. Last month, in a legal challenge from abortion businesses, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to not block the ban while the lawsuit continued. Texas has until Thursday to file its response to Biden’s legal papers.

If the Supreme Court decides to not block the ban, it will likely stay in place until December, when the 5th Circuit has scheduled oral arguments on Biden’s request to block it. That means thousands more unborn children will be saved from aboritons, as many women decide to keep their baby instead of ending their child’s life.
Texas Right to Life told LifeNews it was delighted with the appeals court ruling.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded: “We are excited to continue saving hundreds of lives through the Texas Heartbeat Act. However, the battle is not finished. We expect the Biden administration to appeal to the Supreme Court of the U.S., and we are confident Texas will ultimately defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
Immediately after the previous stay was issued, Texas abortion centers began cancelling abortions scheduled for Saturday, which is often the busiest day at abortion facilities where the highest number of babies lose their lives. Meanwhile, pregnancy centers that provide actual help and support for pregnant women are also experiencing higher numbers of calls and visit and are saving more babies from abortion.
After the 5th Circuit reinstated the ban, Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz told LifeNews: “This is an answered prayer. The Texas Heartbeat Act saves approximately 100 lives from abortion per day, and we’re grateful that this tremendous impact will continue. We expect the Biden administration to appeal to the Supreme Court of the U.S., and we are confident Texas will continue to defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
She said, “Texas Right to Life continues to work with other states to replicate our success across the country.”
As soon as Judge Pitman issued his decision putting the ban on hold, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed.
“We disagree with the Court’s decision and have already taken steps to immediately appeal it to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals,” Paxton wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. “The sanctity of human life is, and will always be, a top priority for me.”
Typically, state governments enforce pro-life laws and, when the laws are challenged, judges can block the states from enforcing them in a preliminary injunction. However, the Texas law leaves enforcement up to individual people. So, judges are considering whether they can stop all private citizens from enforcing the law – especially without allowing private citizens the chance to defend themselves in court first.
Pitman’s order prohibited state court judges and court clerks from accepting lawsuits that the law allows. That made it so some abortion businesses continued killing babies in abortions while others worried they would still not be able to do so legally because the law, even if blocked, still allows lawsuits against anyone killing babies in abortions or assisting them.
Attorneys for Texas said Biden’s Department of Justice is being unfair by asking the court to block “absent third parties” from enforcing the law “without letting them be heard.”
The Texas law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Thus far, the courts have refused to temporarily block the law, and as many as 3,000 unborn babies already have been spared from abortion.
On Friday, attorneys for the Department of Justice argued that the law is unconstitutional and the federal government has an interest in seeing it blocked.
Then, Judge Pitman issued the ruling they were hoping for and endorsed abortion in the process.
“The United States is substantially likely to succeed on the merits of its claims. It is substantially likely that S.B. 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge wrote. “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution. That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”
In comments to LifeNews.com, Texas Right to Life blasted the opinion:

The ruling is wildly broad, preventing Texas state officials from enforcing the law, including the shocking order to block every Texas judge and court clerk from even receiving lawsuits filed by citizens against the abortion industry. The provision blocking lawmakers is entirely unnecessary since the language of the Texas Heartbeat Act already prohibits government officials from enforcing the policy. However, Pitman’s effort to obstruct state judges and court clerks from fulfilling their lawful duties is astonishing.
This is the legacy of Roe v. Wade: Judges catering to the abortion industry, crafting a conclusion first and then searching the depths of legal literature for a rationale later.
Pro-Life attorneys are likely to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals immediately, in which we expect a fair hearing.
Until a higher court intervenes, the disappointing reality is that Pitman’s ruling will likely stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from being enforced.

Texas Right to Life maintained that abortionists could still be sued for violating the abortion ban, despite the ruling.

However, even with this ruling, abortionists can still be held liable for any abortions they commit in violation of the law.
The Texas Heartbeat Act states that an individual being sued under the law cannot claim as an affirmative defense that they were acting under the protection of a court order that had since been reversed or overturned:
“Notwithstanding any other law, the following [is] not a defense to an action brought under this section… a defendant’s reliance on any court decision that has been overruled on appeal or by a subsequent court, even if that court decision had not been overruled when the defendant engaged in conduct that violates this subchapter;” (Section 171.208(e)(3), Texas Health and Safety Code)Thus, those who aid or abet abortions, even if currently permitted by this ruling, could eventually be sued for their actions today.

“Texas Right to Life is dedicated to holding the abortion industry accountable to the fullest extent possible under the law. We are confident that the Texas Heartbeat Act will ultimately withstand this legal challenge and succeed where other states’ heartbeat bills have not,” the pro-life group concluded.
The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List also commented to LifeNews on Judge Pitman’s decision.
“The people of Texas speaking through their state legislators acted to protect unborn children with beating hearts, who are as human as you and me,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Heartbeat Act is estimated to have saved more than 4,700 babies since it took effect over a month ago. Now an unelected judge has interfered with the clearly expressed will of Texans. For two generations, the U.S. Supreme Court has tied the hands of states to enact laws protecting unborn children and their mothers. It is time to restore this right to the people and update our laws.”
Judge Pitman’s ruling came roughly one month after the law went into effect on Sept. 1. The Supreme Court declined to block its enactment, leaving the law in place while litigation against it continues in lower courts.
“Texas has made clear it does not want to follow the Supreme Court‘s abortion precedents,” federal government attorney Brian Netter said during Friday’s hearing.
He asked the judge to issue an injunction blocking Texas and “all of its officers, employees and agents, including private parties” from suing abortionists who violate the law, CNN reports.
“The state resorted to an unprecedented scheme of vigilante justice that was designed to scare abortion providers and others who might help women exercise their constitutional rights, while skirting judicial review,” Netter said.
However, Will Thompson, an attorney representing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Office, told the judge that the federal government is using “inflammatory rhetoric” to attack the law, and the heartbeat law is not the only legislation that allows private enforcement.
“This is not some kind of vigilante scheme. It’s a scheme that uses the normal and lawful process,” Thompson said.
Netter contended that private citizens really are just acting for the state as a proxy to enforce the law. The judge asked Thompson about this claim.
Afterward, Texas Right to Life slammed the Biden administration’s arguments as “maniacal” and “entirely unprecedented.”
Kimberlyn Schwartz, director of media and communications, summarized the hearing: “Ultimately, the Justice Department is asking the court to toss out all logic and judicial precedent in order to cater to the abortion industry. The Biden administration’s case is desperate and far-fetched, and we expect an impartial court to declare the lawsuit without merit.”
The Biden administration has taken multiple actions to thwart Texas’s efforts to save unborn babies from abortion. Along with the lawsuit, it also set aside $10 million – taxpayers’ money – to provide grants to the abortion industry in Texas and make additional Title X family planning funds available.
In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.
While abortion activists say some women are traveling to other states for abortions, they admit that others are having their babies instead.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. Whether the law will remain in effect or ultimately be upheld as constitutional in court remains uncertain, but pro-life leaders are hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority.

BIDENFLATION: Buttigieg Claims Empty Shelves, Supply Chain Problems a Result of Biden’s Successes

BIDENFLATION: Buttigieg Claims Empty Shelves, Supply Chain Problems a Result of Biden’s Successes

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg irked countless Americans Monday when he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that empty shelves at grocery stores are actually a result of Joe Biden’s successful economic policies.
“Demand is up, because income is up, because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession,” said Buttigieg.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says supply chain disruptions will “continue into next year.”

Buttigieg was reportedly in paternity leave in August as the nation’s supply chain chaos unfolded from coast to coast.
“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been on paternity leave since mid-August – with his time off coming amid the Biden administration’s efforts to quell the supply chain crunch and the ongoing infrastructure debate on Capitol Hill to move forward with President Biden’s agenda,” reports Fox News.

“For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated,” a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation told Politico Playbook this week. “He has been ramping up activities since then.”

“Supply chain issues are a source of mounting concern as global economies attempt to meet surging demand and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Shortages of basic household items, such as toilet paper, raw materials needed for construction and critical tech components, like semiconductors, have contributed to a surge in prices for consumers,” adds Fox.

'These people DESPISE America': Jennifer Granholm says US doesn't have 'much moral authority' to call out Communist China

As Twitchy readers know, Joe Biden was caught without a mask in a very busy DC restaurant, blatantly breaking D.C.’s mask mandate. If this had been an everyday American he or she would have been chased down and directed to cover their face for the 20 seconds or so it takes to walk to the table.But since it’s always been ‘rules for thee but not for me,’ they let Joe do what he wants.You’d think if masks really worked at keeping people from catching the virus, the nearly 80-year-old guy who happens to be the leader of the free world would be wearing one no matter what. And yet, here we are.RedSteeze’s response was actually perfect:Again we can argue about the effectiveness of these things but these people should be held to account and should explain why or why not these rules do not apply to them. https://t.co/Dz9gQ49Kkf— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) October 18, 2021Exactly. If Biden really believes they work, he should wear one.For whatever reason, Steeze’s tweet really upset Daniel Newman, who we had never heard of until we looked him up. Apparently, he’s an actor? Looking at his tweet we can see why people pay him to read the words of someone else.See if you can make sense of this hot mess:By who? Fox News?

Outcome Of VA Governor Race Could Stall Biden Agenda

John Fredericks and Steve Bannon talk about the huge consequences of the Virginia gubernatorial race on national politics. Democrat Terry McAuliffe has tied himself to Joe Biden and has thus turned the November election into a referendum on Biden’s woke leftist policies. Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin is basically running tied with former Gov. McAuliffe, and early voting numbers give an optimistic picture for Republicans in the state, which has previously been trending Democratic.

Marxists try to take Federal Reserve as Biden weighs whether to reappoint Powell: Devine

Marxists try to take Federal Reserve as Biden weighs whether to reappoint Powell: Devine

By MIRANDA DEVINE
President Biden is coming unstuck so badly that even CNN has noticed he’s not great at his job.
“He steps on a rake and then he slips on a banana peel and then he falls down the stairs with some marbles and now people are looking at him in a negative light,” Obama administration official-turned-CNN commentator Van Jones lamented last week.
But Biden’s problem is deeper than just being a bumbler.
Voters who swallowed the self-created myth that he is honest and humble are starting to realize that he is the opposite, and that his entire career has been marked by fantastical boasting, outright lies, spite and snobbish disdain for the little guy, masked by a veneer of phony self-deprecation.
The arrogance and duplicity of his administration simply reflects his character and is driving the Great Disillusionment with his presidency.
When sport events every weekend are erupting in chants of “F–k Joe Biden” and “Let’s go, Brandon,” the president clearly has a problem connecting with real Americans.
Normally, at this early point of an administration, when the honeymoon is over and polls are taking a deep dive, political parties take stock, listen to the people, and adjust their policies and rhetoric accordingly.
Not Biden and his baleful band of Brahmins.
Democrats are doubling down on discord and disorder, flying in the face of the president’s campaign promises to restore unity and civility.
Being clueless and out of touch is not a recipe for success at the midterm elections. But that only matters if you care about democracy.
What if the warriors of the woke revolution have accepted that their destructive policies alienate voters? What if they have given up on winning free and fair elections and decided to grab power by taking over the foundational institutions of the nation?
Mollie Hemingway’s new book “Rigged” describes how Democratic operatives distorted the 2020 election by hijacking certain government election offices in battleground states using $419 million from woke tech oligarch Mark Zuckerberg.
We can see the outline of an electorate-packing exercise by open-border activists led by the president, who signals with his inaction in the current crisis that he approves of a record influx during his term of millions of illegal migrants (a k a future Democrats) who are being secretly flown and bused into red states in the dead of night.
We can see progressive designs on the Supreme Court, where packing the court with left-wing activists is an article of faith, even though it will diminish the court’s authority and upend the balance of power with the other two branches of government.
But there is another, stealthier progressive takeover in train at the Federal Reserve, orchestrated by Wall Street Marxists in the guise of high-minded ethics concerns.
Two of the most conservative members of the Fed Board of Governors resigned last week after leftist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) mounted a campaign accusing them of insider trading, at the perfect time for progressives to stack the board with more of their own kind.
Former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers sounded the alarm last week when he blasted “a generation of central bankers who are defining themselves by their wokeness … They’re defining themselves by how socially concerned they are.”
He’s not wrong if a recent research paper from a Fed economist is any indication.
“The primary role of mainstream economics in our society is to provide an apologetics for a criminally oppressive, unsustainable, and unjust social order,” wrote Jeremy Rudd.
Employees of the Federal Reserve reportedly are being subjected to ideological training on “white fragility,” “unconscious bias,” “critical climate justice” and how to “decolonize the atmosphere.”
At least some House Republicans are alarmed by this leftist turn of the central bank, which they say distracts from its critical role in controlling inflation and its nonpartisan statutory mandate to promote maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.

Joe Biden’s Vatican Ambassador Nominee Voted to Force Americans to Fund Abortions

Joe Biden’s Vatican Ambassador Nominee Voted to Force Americans to Fund Abortions

Joe Biden’s choice to represent the U.S. to the Vatican voted to force Americans to fund the billion-dollar abortion industry and its work killing unborn babies in abortions.
Like Biden, Joe Donnelly, a former U.S. senator from Indiana, professes to be a devout Catholic and personally pro-life. But his voting record tells a different story.
Biden recently nominated Donnelly as the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, and the U.S. Senate likely will confirm him without controversy.
“… Donnelly is about as faithful as Biden himself. That is to say, not at all,” The Federalist intern Haley Strack responded.
She pointed to the Democrat politician’s voting record in the U.S. Senate from 2013 to 2019 and the U.S. House from 2007 to 2013 to make her point.
Here’s more from the report:

In March 2010, Donnelly voted for taxpayer-funded abortion through Obamacare. In August 2015, the senator cast a pro-life vote by voting for Cloture On S. 1881, A Bill To Prohibit Federal Funding For Planned Parenthood. Just months later, “the last pro-life Democrat” decided millions of innocent lives weren’t worth political pressure, so he voted to allow the abortion provider to receive taxpayer funding.

“Planned Parenthood has not been found to be in violation of any federal laws,” the senator said at the time. “I am committed to ensuring women have access to quality health care, like cancer screenings and wellness visits, and that our health care providers are in compliance with federal law.”
In 2017, Donnelly voted against President Trump’s plan to deny states the ability to use federal Title X funds for abortion providers. In 2018, he voted against another amendment that would have stopped taxpayer funding from going to abortion corporations like Planned Parenthood, earning him the title “Deceptive Donnelly” from Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List.

Donnelly’s voting record on the abortion issue was mixed, but he sided with the abortion industry more often than the pro-life movement. In 2018, his pro-life voting record was just 28 percent, according to National Right to Life.
In 2019, Donnelly lost his seat to pro-life Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Braun. After the loss, Donnelly helped to lead the Catholics for Biden campaign to elect the pro-abortion Democrat to office, according to Breitbart. During Biden’s election campaign, Donnelly praised him as a man whose Catholic faith “beats deep in his heart every moment of his life.”
Biden professes to be Catholic, but he has embraced an increasingly radical pro-abortion agenda. Earlier this month, he implemented a new rule restoring about $60 million in taxpayer funding to the largest abortion chain in the U.S., Planned Parenthood.
He also has been filling his administration with radical abortion activists, including lawyers who want to send pro-lifers to jail for exposing Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade. Less than a year ago, Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson bragged openly about her strong influence in staffing the Biden administration.

WATCH: Biden Strolls Through Elite Restaurant Without Mask, Violating DC Mandate

WATCH: Biden Strolls Through Elite Restaurant Without Mask, Violating DC Mandate

Joe Biden was the latest Democrat caught violating local mask mandates over the weekend when he was caught strolling through an elite DC restaurant without covering his face.
One patron caught the moment on camera at the upscale ‘Fiola Mare’ eatery, writing “Dinner with the President!”

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser faced a growing backlash in August after pictures emerged showing the Democrat mask-free at a Washington Wedding hours after imposing indoor masking requirements for all residents.
“Bowser was spotted maskless indoors less than 24 hours after her order reinstating the district’s indoor mask mandate went into effect Saturday morning for everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status,” reports Fox News.

Muriel Bowser caught violating her own mask mandate on its first active day https://t.co/96yChyscir
— Dinesh D’Souza (@DineshDSouza) August 2, 2021

“Bowser’s office told Fox News that the wedding ceremony she officiated Saturday night was outdoors on a rooftop and that she ‘wore a mask indoors in compliance with the mandate.’ The Washington Examiner, however, took a photo of her sitting indoors without a mask and reported that she was not actively eating or drinking when the photo was taken,” adds Fox.

EXCLUSIVE: Not 24 hours into the indoor mask mandate she imposed on DC, Muriel Bowser officiated an indoor wedding in Adams Morgan and stayed to fete with *hundreds* of fellow maskless guests. https://t.co/hY0Ji2zqnj
— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) August 1, 2021

Bowser is the latest in a long list of Democrats caught flaunting their own COVID regulations, including Nancy Pelosi’s trip to a San Francisco salon and Gavin Newsom’s dinner at a fine-dining restaurant in California.
“A few weeks ago, I was asked to go to a friend’s 50th birthday… A friend I’ve known for almost 20 years. It was in Napa… It was an outdoor restaurant. The program started at 4 o’clock, I got there a little late… I made a bad mistake. Instead of sitting down, I should have stood up and drove back to my house,” said Newsom last November.
“Instead, I chose to sit there… I want to apologize to you. I need to preach and practice. I’ve done my best to do that. We’re all human, we all fall short sometimes,” he added.

Watch Biden above.

As we told you last month, Democrat accusations that border patrol officers on horseback were using “whips” on migrants were complete BS, but that didn’t stop even Director of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas from helping forward the narrative at the time:MAYORKAS: “The images horrified us in terms of what they suggest and what they conjure up.

WOW: Tom Cotton takes Corruptocrat Terry McAuliffe APART in thread about Dominion Energy donation being used to SUPPRESS GOP voters

Terry McAuliffe has run a dirty, ugly, nasty campaign claiming that it’s grassroots. We’re pretty sure bringing in Joe and Jill Biden, Obama, Stacey Abrams, Tim Kaine and a bunch of other famous Democrats (many of whom do not live in Virginia) is like the opposite of grassroots.Not to mention Kamala Harris recording a video to be played in Black churches and of course this nasty stunt from Dominion Energy. McAuliffe promised he wouldn’t take any money from them, but then they turned around and donated money to a PAC that has been creating ads to disenfranchise Republicans, attacking Glenn Youngkin as if they were a right-leaning org fighting for gun rights.Yeah, this is bad.Tom Cotton explained it way better:Here’s how corrupt Terry McAuliffe is: He promised to not take $ from Dominion Energy, a public utility. So instead, @DominionEnergy has quietly spent big $ *to suppress the vote* with misinformation to help McAuliffe win. https://t.co/lHE5BPDGOu— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) October 18, 2021They are literally trying to suppress the GOP vote in Virginia by feeding them misinformation on Glenn Youngkin.How that’s not illegal is beyond us but nothing sadly surprises us anymore when it comes to Democrats.Dominion Energy is funding liberal ads that pretend to be from conservatives to suppress Republican turnout.This is dishonest, and it’s aimed at convincing voters to stay home.— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) October 18, 2021Dominion Energy serves all of Virginia so in essence, they used Virginians’ dollars to fund this.Awful, yes?Keep going.McAuliffe’s dishonesty isn’t a surprise. What is surprising is that @DominionEnergy would fund misinformation to convince Virginians not to vote. Did Terry McAuliffe agree to a utility rate hike in exchange for this money?— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) October 18, 2021Exactly. What are they getting from Terry in exchange for that $200k? Rate hike? When a candidate is owned by so many organizations, companies, and groups, they are all going to want their payback if Terry is elected, and that payback will come at the expense of Virginians.Hey, @Facebook—you claim you ban misinformation and voter suppression ads. So why are you allowing @Dominionenergy to fund voter suppression ads to help Terry McAuliffe? pic.twitter.com/sBIYq53709— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) October 18, 2021Silly, they only ban misinformation on the right.Republicans will take back Congress soon.

On Saturday night, CNN Newsroom weekend host Pamela Brown devoted a segment to promoting abortion as an important option for underage girls as she spoke with a young woman who had an abortion at age 17, and does not regret doing it. The pro-abortion activist even claimed that it “saved my life” by making it easier to go to college.
The segment also suggested that it was unreasonable to require underage girls to get either the consent of their parents or of a judge before getting an abortion. Brown introduced her guest, Veronika Granado, as she set up the segment:

Our next guest was 17 years old when an unwanted pregnancy landed her in a Texas courtroom before a judge. That is because she did not have the required parental consent for a minor to get an abortion. So, as if on trial, she had to plead her case. Veronika Granado joins me now. And, Veronika, thank you so much for coming on. I’m sure that this was one of the most difficult decisions of your life. Tell us about it. Do you have any regrets about having an abortion?

Granado started off by fully defending her abortion, and suggested there was something wrong with requiring an underage girl to get permission:
LifeNews depends on the support of readers like you to combat the pro-abortion media. Please donate now.

I actually have no regrets. And actually that’s a great question because a lot of people assume that, you know, abortion is something to regret or something that is, you know, extremely traumatic. The only — I would say traumatic part in my case was having to go through this extremely difficult process, you know, going in front of a judge in a setting that most criminals go through. So I felt like I was a criminal. But other than that, my abortion saved my life. It allowed me to go to college and become an engineer and pursue the dreams that I had before I got pregnant and was able to continue after the pregnancy.

In following up, the CNN host cued up her guest to speculate about how difficult her life would have been if she had not aborted her unborn baby. Brown then asked her to react to the new pro-life law in Texas making it more difficult for other girls like her to do the same. Eventually, Granado suggested again that it was wrong that her refusal to tell her parents about her pregnancy meant she had to go in front of a judge:

BROWN: What was going through your mind as you stood in front of the judge who would make the most important decision of your life?
GRANADO: Yeah, that’s a great question. It’s extremely relevant because the point of judicial bypass process is just to intimidate teens in situations like I was and to make them feel that they’re doing something wrong because they are in this criminal setting that they probably haven’t been through before. And in my situation, I wasn’t in that situation before.
So it was just terrifying because I knew that if I said any little thing wrong, if I didn’t sound mature enough or if I didn’t give the correct response, the judge who’s a male would be able to decide my fate for me and decide that I wouldn’t be able to go to college and that I would have to put a hold on my life and my dreams to, you know, take care of this child that I wasn’t financially able to support.

One would never expect to hear CNN speaking with a woman who regrets having an abortion, or who was glad she chose to give birth to her baby.

Watch: McEnany Destroys Omar and AOC in Front of the ENTIRE Nation

Watch: McEnany Destroys Omar and AOC in Front of the ENTIRE Nation

ICYMI: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany roasted two prominent Democrat representatives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and Ilhan Omar, in front of the entire nation over their absurd comments.

[embedded content]
AOC’s Comments Keep Getting More Ridiculous
AOC stated that New York’s uptick in crime “has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent, and so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money, so you maybe have to, they’re put in a position where they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”
McEnany responded to her ludicrous comments on July 13, “That is preposterous.”

Not known for holding back, the Press Secretary also slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar for referring to police as “cancer.”
“This is not how we should be talking about our heroes,” McEnany responded, the Daily Wire reports.
Defunding Police is a No from McEnany
Demands for police departments to be defunded have been occurring across the country. Democrats have embraced the Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA movements’ calls for such.
A reporter brought up the subject to McEnany and asked, “If you will expand on the difference between this time last month and now, when it comes to framing the discussion about law enforcement — last month, the President hosted a law enforcement roundtable, and at that roundtable, he said that he would not support defunding the police. And yet, one month later, we still have Democrat cities doing so — disbanding their police, defunding the police. How does the White House feel it should frame the debate now, with regards to defunding the police so that a reasonable discussion can be had with these Democrat cities who are trying to do so?”
McEnany answered: “Yeah, it’s a very good question. We know that in Los Angeles, when they announced they would be defunding their police department by 150 million, they basically, immediately after, saw a 250 percent increase in homicides. When you have people out there, like Representative Ilhan Omar, saying, ‘We have to completely ‘dismantle the police’ and police are ‘cancer,’ this is not how we should be talking about our heroes.”
The subject then turned to AOC and McEnany retorted: “You have, most egregious of all, really, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying, ‘Defund the police means defund the police.’ She criticized, of course, the announcement of $1.5 billion being taken down from NYPD. And this weekend, you know, when faced with — there were 28 shootings in New York, a 600 percent increase from this time last year — you have Representative Ocasio-Cortez saying this is just because people are trying to get food with their families. That is preposterous.”

The facts are that the majority of Americans do not want the police defunded because they fear their safety would be jeopardized. Which it would. Many on the left have fueled violence against cops across the nation due to their anti-police rhetoric.
“The reality is 63 percent of Americans in this country fear that criticism of our police departments will lead to no public safety in their streets, and 69 percent of black Americans. This is a real issue when you call our police ‘cancer,’ when you talk about dismantling them,” McEnany continued.

The Press Secretary Doesn’t Hold Back
The Press Secretary called out three very anti-American politicians on Twitter in front of the entire nation:

Our police officers are selfless heroes, but
❌ Joe Biden calls them “the ENEMY”
❌ Ilhan Omar calls them “CANCER “
❌ AOC says must “DEFUND”
Police secure our streets and keep the peace. The radical left can’t have their way!
— Kayleigh McEnany (@kayleighmcenany) July 14, 2020

Her no-nonsense approach is welcomed by citizens across the country who are sick and tired of people like AOC and Ilhan Omar making ridiculous statements about police and crime.

Free speech is too FREE?! Glenn Greenwald SCORCHES ACLU for going after Loudoun County teachers fighting for free speech

Free speech is too FREE?! Glenn Greenwald SCORCHES ACLU for going after Loudoun County teachers fighting for free speech

ACLU going after the free speech of teachers fighting for free speech. Yup, everything is stupid.BREAKING: Three teachers in Loudoun county are going to court simply because they don’t want to use trans & nonbinary students’ pronouns. 👀We and partners filed an amicus brief to tell the court: Refusing to use a student’s pronouns because of who they are is discrimination. pic.twitter.com/8dAsnXMfAh— ACLU of Virginia (@ACLUVA) October 14, 2021Simply because they want to use the words they want to use.And gosh golly gee, we can’t have that, now can we?It’s more likely these teachers are trying to avoid getting fired if they misgender a student because this IS Loudoun County we’re talking about and all they seem to pay attention to is identity politics. They couldn’t even be bothered to admit a freshman girl had been raped in the high school bathroom by a ‘boy in a skirt.’Why does it seem like the ACLU is always on the wrong side of these issues?Glenn Greenwald took them apart:I read this ACLU brief. This is the first time, at least to my knowledge, that ACLU is explicitly arguing in court that the First Amendment’s free speech clause has been interpreted *too broadly* by courts, and are advocating *a more restrictive view* of what free speech means. https://t.co/RKfmDVLGw7— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 17, 2021The ACLU is arguing to RESTRICT SPEECH.Let that sink in for a minute.The ACLU was a crucial influence on my political and legal outlook in childhood and early adulthood. There have been many valid criticisms of them as they changed — including from its former leaders — but to see them explicitly urging more free speech restrictions is shocking.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 17, 2021I really believe that within 18-24 months, ACLU – either a state affiliate or the national group – will argue in court that hate speech is outside 1st Amendment protections because it infringes the rights of marginalized groups. This brief is a big step.https://t.co/EUcRH4mDYo— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 17, 2021It shouldn’t be forgotten that one of ACLU’s most prominent lawyers — who made the TIME 100 list — not only explicitly defended Amazon’s banning of @AbigailShrier’s book but said that this book banning was “100% a hill he would die on”:https://t.co/G7jPne2dWC— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) October 17, 2021ACLU banning speech and books.Never thought we’d see the day and yet here we are.***Related:Just HAD to be THAT a-hole, didn’t ya’?

You know, we’re starting to the think that Joe Biden’s White House doesn’t know what the hell they’re doing.Take how they’ve been handling the president’s Build Back Better Agenda. For weeks, they insisted to us that it wouldn’t cost Americans a dime to fund this monstrosity.My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes, and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America.And it adds zero dollars to the national debt.— President Biden (@POTUS) September 26, 2021Psaki just said “I know none of us are mathematicians otherwise we wouldn’t be here” before repeating the lie that the $3.5 trillion spending bill would cost “ZERO”I can’t believe this video is real. pic.twitter.com/ZEzjsy3xb4— Danny De Urbina (@dannydeurbina) September 28, 2021Zero dollars!These days, it’s still “zero dollars,” but it’s not zero dollars like before:The cost of the Build Back Better Agenda is $0.The President’s plan won’t add to our national deficit and no one making under $400,000 per year will see their taxes go up a single penny. It’s fully paid for by ensuring big corporations and the very wealthy pay their fair share.— The White House (@WhiteHouse) October 17, 2021See what they did there? It’s still fully paid for, but now they’re acknowledging that someone indeed has to pay for it.

So, yes, we can afford them. https://t.co/CXgWrY4Dxt— Ronald Klain (@WHCOS) October 18, 2021Economic hardships are just “high class problems.” The Build Back Better Agenda will be funded by “high class” people.Ron Klain knows damn well that the floundering economy isn’t just hurting the “high class,” and Biden’s agenda isn’t just going to fleece the “high class.”I was assured the plan will cost $0.00 https://t.co/DXoAkYdRdR— LegallyShakespearean (@LegalShakespear) October 18, 2021Wait, wait, wait.

What SHE said –> Svetlana Lokhova DROPS self-proclaimed 'hero and patriot' Christopher Steele with BRUTAL tweets and DAMN

Nothing like a former Clinton lackey interviewing the guy who worked to spread the very lie they hoped would help Hillary win an election because that’s not a conflict of interest or a bias or anything.First doc from George Stephanopoulos Productions coming Monday on Hulu. “Out of the Shadows” — Christopher Steele sat down with me for his first interview since the Steele Dossier. Here’s the trailer: pic.twitter.com/lpgQewC4N5— GeorgeStephanopoulos (@GStephanopoulos) October 14, 2021‘Out of the Shadows’.It really is like they’re trying to make Steele into some great hero who was only doing his part to save America or something … it’s bizarre.And it’s a crock.The Steele Dossier was a complete lie but you’re gonna prop him up?

He still has not answered why he chose to spread the false story that Gen Flynn had an “extra-marital affair” with me. https://t.co/Emqj0SYxf0 pic.twitter.com/5fILu1ri8s— Svetlana Lokhova (@RealSLokhova) October 14, 2021Wait, Steele is a liar?Gosh, we’re shocked.Former FBI Deputy Director Andy McCabe got his pension back and also special FBI cufflinks.All I got from the “investigation” McCabe “supervised” is the false report that I had an affair with Gen Flynn. The FBI could not even spell my name correctly. 🤦🏼‍♀️ pic.twitter.com/uUom5H0ydV— Svetlana Lokhova (@RealSLokhova) October 18, 2021Of course Steele would defend his lies.The question is, where are British authorities in all of this? Steele is an ex-govt employee, presumably still has security clearance.What an embarrassment for the Service.The authorities must investigate him. Make the results public. https://t.co/mEXnHSyQSl— Svetlana Lokhova (@RealSLokhova) October 18, 2021Oof.Steele refused to assist congressional investigation.

'So LAME': Terry McAuliffe earns himself a SERIOUS Brit Hume dragging for screeching about Trump and claiming Virginians are 'happy'

Terry McAuliffe really seems to think he’s running against Donald Trump.Or at least he thinks his supporters are dumb enough to believe Glenn Youngkin is a Trump mouthpiece even though outlets like CNN have corrected the former governor and Clinton lackey multiple times. Suppose he’s just using the Democrat strategy of repeating a lie often enough so eventually people believe it.Luckily for Glenn Youngkin, ain’t nobody buyin’ it.Brit Hume dropped Terry:This is so lame it’s hard to believe it will work. But it does say something when Democrats think opposition to Trump is their best issue. They claim to despise him, but they find him politically highly useful. https://t.co/KX7IqL7lAQ— Brit Hume (@brithume) October 17, 2021What Brit said.For hating the guy, Democrats sure do use him a lot for their own political gain.

1619 Project architect Nikole Hannah-Jones reiterates that she 'not sit down one day and decide to make up something about the American Revolution'

1619 Project architect Nikole Hannah-Jones reiterates that she 'not sit down one day and decide to make up something about the American Revolution'

Can you believe it, you guys? After all this time, Nikole Hannah-Jones is still having to defend herself and her “1619 Project”!The audacity of the Times’s description of the 1619 Project still amazes me: “[Slavery] is the country’s very origin.Out of slavery — and the anti-black racism it required — grew nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional…”https://t.co/9yhhAQGmki pic.twitter.com/LCtOwY9Bxw— Jeryl Bier (@JerylBier) October 18, 2021The central thesis that buttressed her entire masterpiece may have been wrong and stupid, but that’s no reason for people to criticize her.Some tidbits from the #1619Project book publishing Nov. 16: In early 1775, James Madison reported hearing a rumor that British Parliament had introduced a bill to emancipate the colonies’ enslaved.— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021A report from the Virginia House of Burgesses accused British officials of contemplating “a most diabolical” scheme to “offer Freedom to our slaves, and turn them against their masters.”— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021″All over Virginia, observers noted, the governor’s freedom offer turned neutrals and even loyalists in patriots,” @woodyholtonusc in Forced Founders.— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021The Somerset ruling did not apply to the colonies, but “colonial masters felt shocked by the implication that their property system defied English traditions of liberty,” historian Alan Taylor in “The Internal Enemy.” The ruling was reported in all the colonial newspapers.— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021″Thomas Jefferson spoke for many other white Americans when he stated, in the largest and angriest complaint in the Declaration of Independence, that Dunmore’s emancipation proclamation was a major cause of the American Revolution, ” — @woodyholtonusc— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021″In one sense, slaveholding Patriots went to war in 1775 and declared independence in 1776 to defend their rights to own slaves,” — historian Michael Groth.— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021Basically:I will say this once more: I did not sit down one day and decide to make up something about the American Revolution and publish it in the paper of record.— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) October 17, 2021We’re willing to believe that.

In fact, she never cared.This level of defensiveness is pretty telling, if you ask me.

When it comes to adhering to the time-honored sales advice that is “always be closing,” you’ll never be at a loss of examples when it comes to the issue of global warming/climate change.

Ana Navarro wastes zero time using Gen. Colin Powell's death to stick it to Donald Trump, MAGA, and the GOP

The ghouls always come out to play in the wake of a prominent political figure’s death. And today, there are plenty of ghouls reveling in Gen. Colin Powell’s death from COVID19 complications.But there’s another form of ickiness, one embodied by people like Ana Navarro, who is using Gen. Powell’s death to make a point about … January 6:Many Republicans will say poignant words about C Powell today.As a reminder, Powell called Trump a “liar” who skirted the Constitution and said he no longer called himself a Republican because of 1/6.Honor him by standing for truth and supporting the January 6th Committee.— Ana Navarro-Cárdenas (@ananavarro) October 18, 2021She can’t let Gen. Powell rest in peace. She’s got to drag him back out to stick it to Donald Trump, Trump supporters, and the entire GOP, really.Because, in case you missed it, Ana Navarro is not a good person.How many minutes after someone dies before Ana makes it pathetically political? 5, 4, 3, 2… https://t.co/qwFk01x4Bm— Yura Velcum (@VelcumYura) October 18, 2021This is both disrespectful AND obnoxious.

The leading shipping industry website rips President Biden for naming a US Maritime Administrator with 'zero shipping experience'

The leading shipping industry website rips President Biden for naming a US Maritime Administrator with 'zero shipping experience'

gCaptain, the “world’s top-visited maritime and offshore industry news website,” has an op-ed out ripping President Joe Biden for appointing a U.S. Navy veteran to the post of US Maritime Administrator despite her having zero experience in shipping:Biden Appoints US Maritime Administrator With Zero Ship Experience During Worst Ship Crisis In Decades #DOTMARAD @DOTMARAD https://t.co/vuuoatcV6q— gCaptain (@gCaptain) October 15, 2021From the op-ed:Yesterday afternoon, President Biden announced his intention to nominate Rear Admiral Ann Phillips, US Navy (Retired), as the next US Maritime Administrator, a position that has been vacant since Rear Admiral Mark Buzby stepped down following the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in January.Phillips is a highly decorated Navy leader with a long list of accomplishments and is highly respected by everyone gCaptain has interviewed. She was head of the Navy’s Climate Change Task Force and is a highly sought after consultant on climate security issues. She holds an MBA. She was chairman of a local government Sea Level Rise Preparedness and Resilience project. She once captained a Navy warship. The appointment looks great on paper except for one kinda big problem. This is not a warship position. It’s a commercial shipping appointment and she has zero experience aboard any commercial ships. She does not even have experience leading navy military sealift ships.It’s just not relevant experience, argues gCaptain founder John Konrad:If a Navy Admiral is qualified to be the new US Maritime Administrator of commercial shipping then I must be qualified to be the next @USNavyCNO, @TimothyDooner can be the next tank general and @FreightAlley can be @SecAFOfficial, and @frankly_coles can head space force!— John Konrad V (@johnkonrad) October 16, 2021Under President Trump, US Navy Rear Admiral Mark Buzby — a graduate of the US Merchant Marine Academy — was in the position:The position of US Maritime Administrator is traditionally held by a commercial shipowner or captain, but President Obama left the position unfilled for years then selected a former congressional staffer, David Matsuda. He was highly unpopular and was pushed out in 2013. Obama followed the appointment with a relatively low ranking navy submarine commander Chip Jaenichen.The Trump administration appointed US Navy Rear Admiral Mark Buzby for the position. Buzby, while not a commercial mariner or ship owner, was a graduate of the US Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), ran sealift operations for the Navy, was on the board of directors of Carnival Cruise Line, and spent his first year traveling around the country, meeting with ship captains and commercial maritime stake holders. He reached out and listened to stakeholder needs. Buzby became highly popular within the industry on his promise to publish a new US Maritime Strategy to resuscitate the US Merchant Marine. He did write that strategy but it was lost in the malaize of government bureaucracy.But Buzby didn’t do enough to fix the agency:Numerous sources inside the beltway have told gCaptain that MARAD is fundamentally broken. Nearly a decade of neglect by the Obama Administration left MARAD with a broken, tired, and ineffective workforce. Buzby made only one major internal move of significance, replacing the highly unpopular Obama selected Army Colonel running USMMA with a major shipping CEO. “The rest of MARAD he naively thought he could motivate and foster, as he had done many times during his naval career,” says a US Navy Officer who works with MARAD. “But commercial shipping is not something the Navy understands. The dead wood inside MARAD showed some signs of life under his strong leadership but, once he left, the place reverted to infighting and morass. If Buz had fired more people like Hellis, and replaced them with shipping experts, his legacy might have continued.”And here’s Ross Kennedy, a logistics expert, pushing back on conspiracy theories but saying what’s causing the crisis is “malignant stupidity” from the government and a lack of people with real expertise in positions of regulatory oversight:Is the global supply chain crisis one big conspiracy? Is it Biden’s fault, the nWo, big gift card, are the containers full of enemy combatants???

SPEAKERS

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai

00:00

Some of our some of the people at our in our citizens restoring Liberty group here are not familiar with you. And could we get a just a quick synopsis and introduction to who you are and how you got where you are? Sure.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 00:15

First of all, welcome to everyone abroad. Can you make your screen full screen? I guess you can’t, right? Because you have other people calling in. But first of all, welcome to everyone. And as I understand, Rod, this is a group of hard working people who are nurses, health care workers. Is that right?

00:36

Yeah, we’re patriots across the entire stripe, we do have some nurses, we have some teachers, we have some school board members. And we also have, you know, people like Scott and me just regular Joe’s.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 00:52

Well, welcome everyone. My name is Dr. Shiva do right, let me just give you a little bit of background. I’m actually based here in Massachusetts, and Cambridge. And my background goes back to I grew up in New Jersey when I was seven years old. I came here from India. But some of you may know India has a very, very interesting system called the caste system.

And you won’t find a lot of Indians like me here, meaning my parents, and I were quite fortunate to come here, India has this deplorable caste system where your birth determines what you’re supposed to do for the rest of your life. So the fact that my parents made it out of India is quite extraordinary. It speaks to a lot about their resilience and who they were.

My dad had grown up in war torn Burma, my mother was a woman in the 1940s at a time when women weren’t even supposed to get educated. So both of them were quite extraordinary people. So we came here when I was seven years old. And I grew up in the working class neighborhoods of New Jersey. By the time I was 14, I had ended up going to I was not only, you know, reasonably good at math and science, but I was also played baseball and mowed lawns, like your typical American kid.

But by the time I was 14, I started working full time as a research fellow at, at what is now known as records university as a, as a medical researcher, I had the year before gone to New York University. As a 14 year old kid, this is a 1970s when computers were just coming.

And so I was reasonably good at that. So I ended up getting a job while in high school, working full time doing medical research, to try to understand why babies were dying in their sleep. Some of you may know there’s an interesting disease called Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

And so that was back in 1978, when computers were just new. And I ended up creating a way to understand sleep patterns. So I got really good at math. And I started applying it to medicine. Now while I was at that medical school, and by the way, this was a very small medical school in the heart of Newark, New Jersey, where nothing is supposed to come out of there, right?

Predominantly African American people are very poor neighborhood. But in the center of Newark, New Jersey was as medical college anyway, while I was doing that research, I was also given another task. anyone in the audience there who’s over the age of 40, will remember there was a very interesting system, the way that people communicated in large organizations or small organizations.

Some of you may remember there was two ways. One was with a phone. Remember that the hardwired phone, not cell phones, the fax it was actually another one was just coming. But you had this thing called the inner office, paper based mail system. Typically, in every one of these doctor’s offices was the secretary, always a woman who had a typewriter and she’d write something called a memo to from subject, right. And sometimes she’d create a carbon paper called a carbon copy.

And if she had to do five carbon copies, CCS, she would be there typing away all night. And you had the inbox you had the outbox to the young people out there, these were physical boxes, they weren’t just virtual things. Have you had a trash cans wizard, this is called the interoffice mail system. You had pneumatic tubes, I was asked to convert that entire system as a 14 year old kid to the electronic version. And we’re not talking about simply exchanging text messages.

We’re talking about that entire system. So I did that as a 14 year old, named that system email wrote 50,000 lines of code. And this was before I went to MIT. And this system was used throughout the organization. And when I came to MIT, so I didn’t even know what MIT was before I applied. And when I came there, you know, they had listed this kid who had created this first email system.

And I ended up getting the first United States copyright for the invention of email. And this was in 1981, when the patent office and the courts didn’t even Except patents, software patents, it was only 1994, or software patents were allowed.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 05:06

Patenting allows you to get royalty on every piece of software. Copyright doesn’t protect that. But no one knew what software was Otherwise, I’d be zillionaire today. But anyway, I was recognized as the inventor of email by the United States government.

And then the rest became history. But email was really used as an Office application. never spoke about it. You know, I was always brought up to be a good Indian humble Indian kid, right? Anyway, my journey. From that point on when I came to MIT was, I went in and out of MIT over multiple decades got four degrees, I was always very interested in systems you see, email was a system, emails, not the simple exchange of text messages.

So I was very interested in systems that I was very particular and just interested in understanding why this caste system existed, why there was oppression, why there was injustice in the world. So I went in and out of MIT got four degrees, my undergraduates in electrical engineering computer science, went and started a company came back to MIT to two masters degrees, one in mechanical engineering, and another one in visual studies went back.

And in 1993, while while I was in the middle of my PhD, it looks like I couldn’t get away from email, the Clinton White House, believe it or not, was getting tons of email, if you remember, 1993 was when the World Wide Web came, the internet existed, but the World Wide Web, put a front end on the interface, so you could use your mouse and point and click.

And so that means the internet became more of a consumer application, people started creating email for everyone else to use up until 1993. Email was really an Office application, the email that I created. So by 1993, email volumes started exploding, the White House is getting tons of emails, and they run a contest to see if someone could automatically read President Clinton’s email and categorize it.

I was the only graduate student I ended up winning that and I ended up leaving MIT and starting a company to automatically read and categorize email. And that was called echo mail. So what we call pattern recognition. And that’s what I’d been doing for many years analyzing sleep patterns of babies analyzing, you know, ultrasonic waves, speech patterns.

So analyzing email documents was no different or analyzing handwriting on bank cheques. So I’ve done all these projects. So I ended up leaving MIT started a company called echo mail. And we grew that to around 240 million in value started at bottoms up, no one helped us people thought this was crazy.

We had clients like Nike and in Oregon, and and, you know, every major company, people would send us their email, we would automatically figure out what was in it, route it, etc. So anyway, came back to MIT in 2007. I had always loved medicine and systems. And I came back in 2003, I’m sorry. And in 2003, something very interesting was going on.

The world of biology was changing. And this is where the notion of systems comes, you see, science, up until then thought that the number of genes in your body is determines the complexity. So 1993, we knew that a small worm had around 20,000 genes. And so when the human genome project started in 1993, we thought that a human being must have a lot more genes than a worm, right?

So we’re more complex, more genes. And it turned out that when the genome project ended in 2003, we only have 20,000 genes, the same protein coding genes the same as a worm. So this flipped biology on its head, because people realize that the complexity is not a function of the number of parts. This is very important concept to understand that people always think more parts more complexity.

But what you find out is the reason a human beings more complex in a worm, we have the same number of genes, but it’s the number the genes create proteins. And they interconnect in very, very profoundly different ways. So the real issue is the interconnections between things in the universe is what creates complexity, I can give you 10 marbles, and a bunch of string and one person may just put the marbles one after the other very simple complexity.

Someone may use all the string to connect every marble with another marble, right. So it’s a number of interconnections very important thing in systems. So when we look at the world, the elites around try to teach us a way to look at the world by just looking at a little piece of something so they can manipulate us. And but when you start looking at the interconnections between things, which is what system sciences, you can really come closer to understanding truth. So anyway, the net of it was in 2003.

The Genome Project ends biology goes through a revolution we find out we’re not our genes. It’s much more complex and a field Just called systems biology. So I was literally walking back through MIT an advisor, mindset Shiva, you know, you got to come back to MIT, you know, you really know how to do computing your computational guide, there’s this amazing field called systems biology, you should come back and contribute to this, I came back at the age of 40.

To do my PhD back at MIT, I was running a very lucrative, lucrative company. And the goal was it could you mathematically model the whole human cell on the computer, and I think about this up until 2003, the way drug development companies and this comes back to the whole jobs and the masks, etc.

So up until 19, so if you look at how pharmaceutical companies make money, the way they make money is they work on something called a pharmaceutical drug, what’s the pharmaceutical drug, a pharmaceutical drug, is a compound that doesn’t occur nature to synthetic compound that’s made in a lab.

Today, pharmaceutical companies around 60,000 compounds, okay, in the library, and the way they do pharmaceutical drug development typically takes 13 years $5 billion in a test to but I’m sort of simplifying this, they’ll put cancer cells, and they’ll test one of those 60,000 compounds. And if they see something occurred, oh, wow, this looks like it’s killing the cancer cells, they’ll apply for a patent.

And then they have 20 years to get that drug to market right to make money off of it. So they’ll do more test tube testing, maybe two or three years, and they’ll kill a bunch of animals and other three years. And if they don’t kill too many animals, and they think the drugs not toxic, then they’ll go to the FDA and say, Hey, we want to test on humans. And they if they get the allowance for say, tests on maybe 50. Humans, that’s called phase one, maybe 1000. Humans, phase two, maybe 10,000 20,000.

Humans, phase three. So that’s the FDA testing process that takes about 13 years $5 billion. When the drug comes out, it has side effects. And they have seven years because patent life is 20 years to make all their money back. So if you really look at the reality over the last 10 years, how many people think pharmaceutical companies are making money by the way?

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 12:17

Okay. All right. The reality is over the last 10 years, and we knew this back in 2003, pharmaceutical companies have been losing top line revenue, their entire model is broken. Meaning if a pharmaceutical drug hurts, you remember, you can sue them, right? It takes 13 years. So Pfizer, for example, if you look at their revenue numbers, since 2013, they’ve lost $25 billion in top line revenue, they repeat that they made about 65 67 billion in 2012 13.

And they made about 40 billion in 2020, they’ve lost close to $25 billion in top line revenue. Okay? The news doesn’t talk about this. We know that pharmaceutical companies a trillion dollar industry is failing, because their entire model of developing these synthetic drugs is failing. Every year, they put more and more money, 30% per year into r&d, and they’re finding less and less new molecules. In fact, the FDA is not even allowing their molecules because of their side effects.

So pharmaceutical companies, you know, need a different way to either produce drugs, or they need to move into a different industry. So in 2003, when I came back to MIT, the idea was if we could create a technology that you can use a computer to mathematically model diseases on the computer, then you could save six years, right?

You don’t have to kill animals, you could find out the stuff that doesn’t work, you’re not going to hurt people, right? So that was the invention I created for my PhD work, it was called cyto, solve see yto, which means sell and solve. So I spent five years for it four years back at MIT, creating this very innovative technology, which no one thought could be done, just like email.

I’m back in 78. And the technology, I created a way that we could look at the scientific research and in any field, like Alzheimer’s or cancer, and we could find all we could take all the research together, you say, and we could extract the findings, the molecular pathways, mathematically model it so I was able to starting to model Alzheimer’s, I could model arthritis, I could model cancer.

In fact, in 2012, as a proof of concept, we use this technology to model pancreatic cancer. We went through all the, you know, generic drugs for cancer out there and we did combinations and we found a combination without killing animals on the computer that did better than the leading drug and we actually got it allowed by the FDA and I just did this as a test to show the power of this technology and I thought pharma would embrace this. But frankly, they don’t want to embrace anything new because They actually make a lot of money by doing things in the dinosaur way, right?

The stock market rewards them. Phase One, phase two, phase three. Anyway. So that was my journey. And and, and what I do today is using cytosol. I go back to my roots, my grandmother was a traditional healer using traditional medicines. So we are actually using cytosol. To look at all the amazing herbs and botanicals in the world.

The problem with a lot of the vitamins and herbs out there, you have a lot of snake oil there. But with cytosol, we can actually understand.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 15:33

We can model molecular pathways and we’re actually finding combinations of natural products that have profound effects but validating with science, okay, for example, we just published a paper just a few days ago, where we found out how green tea lowers the cytokine storm, and can increase transplant tolerance.

Okay. So anyway, that’s what we do. And we just created a, we went through 1000s of natural ingredients, we modeled trillions of biochemical reactions. And we found two naturally occurring ingredients which have a profound effect on pain and inflammation. So that’s my full time job. But throughout my life, I’ve been very, I’ve always been a political activist when I was 18. At MIT, you would probably think I was, you know, there’s a, I organized the food service workers at MIT, because they weren’t getting treated while I made sure more poor blacks and poor whites.

And women got to come to MIT, we led massive protests, there’s a picture of me and my PhD graduation, sing us out of Iraq, when it wasn’t that popular to, you know, be an anti war activist against Iraq. I’ve exposed academic corruption. And so I never believed in the left or the right, I thought both of these political parties parties were scumbags.

I never voted in my life. By the time I was 18, I’d read all sorts of revolutionary politics. And so I never voted. And but I believed in the bottoms up movement. So you would always see me as an activist, I studied political theory, but I was very interested in understanding when you looked at the history of movements, why movements would grow, and then suddenly, they would fail, right?

So you look at the Paris Commune of the 1700s, you even look at the early parts of the Russian Revolution for about 16 months, it was going the right way, right? The American Revolution, even when the Indian people in India were rising up, right.

And then the British, you know, eventually that was misled. So I was very, in addition to being a student of science, or as a very important student of political movements, but always a ground activist, you know, there’s a picture of me burning the South African flag on the steps of MIT, people would think I was a lefty, because MIT had investments in South Africa.

But the first time I ever voted in my life, even though I was a citizen for many, many years, was when Trump ran. Now in Trump’s rhetoric, I saw someone who’s willing to take on the establishment, at least he spoke that way, right? Lock her up, right? And so on, drain the swamp. And I voted for Trump in 2016.

And then in 2018, I ran for office against a woman called Elizabeth Warren. We ran as an independent because the republicans in Massachusetts are completely corrupt. They didn’t want an outsider like me. They had a guy whose name was deal, we call them dirty deal who had actually stolen Trump’s own data here. Okay. And our campaign was only the real Indian can defeat the fake Indian.

And we forced Elizabeth Warren to take the DNA test. Okay, it wasn’t Trump, it was us. You couldn’t leave Massachusetts without seeing these huge billboards would said only the real Indian can defeat the fake Indian. In 2020. I decided to run as a Republican. And we thought the republicans would embrace us, but they don’t because the Massachusetts GOP is in cahoots with the Democratic Party. We had 3000 volunteers now just think about this.

3000 volunteers and our volunteers weren’t like students. They were everyday working people like all of us here. People that 1000s of standouts, we had 20,000 lawn signs of 10,000 bumper stickers, huge billboard signs, we raised $2 million $5 $10. Some of you may have even donated all over the country. And on.

This was in the Republican primary on September 1 2020. I mean, we were campaigning everywhere. The Republican establishment had found some fool to run against us no one even knew this guy. In fact, his website was cocked for senate that’s a good as branding was literally k. k OC for Senate. We had, we were everywhere.

You couldn’t leave Massachusetts without knowing who Dr. Shiva was. So the word on the street was landslide everywhere. So on September 1 2020, the results are coming in. One of the counties in Massachusetts is called Franklin County where all the votes primarily most of the votes are and if not all of them are hand counted paper ballots.

Will we win they’re all white working class. neighborhood, everyone loved our campaign. We went by, we win by 10 points. In every other county which had machine counted votes, we lose 6040 6040 6040 6040 6040 6040, and so on. Okay.

Now, I never believed election fraud took place in the United States, I only thought that took place in third world countries, right. And so that began me applying all my four degrees at MIT my engineering skills to understanding voting systems.

And one of the things I came to understand was that when you put a ballot into these voting machines, they take a picture of the ballot, it’s called a ballot image. And then the machine looks for the dots on that according to a law that was passed nearly 50 years ago.

52 USC 20701, which, by the way, encourages audits, okay. Which it says it’s it’s good is an American will do audits for but for 22 months after an election, the the ballot images are supposed to be saved, okay.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 21:05

for auditing, so I right now you have to understand I had probably about 2 million followers across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, probably about 400,000 followers on Twitter. So we I sent a letter to the state election director of mass in fact, we went there to her office with a camera, and we said, we would like the ballot images.

The election official says, What are you talking about? He goes, we turn that feature off. We don’t have those ballot images. So we issue a formal public records request. And 10 days later in a series of email interactions, a state election director, her name is Michelle tests Inari. She responds back and she says we don’t have to save ballot images by Massachusetts law.

Remember, I’m running for US Senate federal office, I said, Please show me the statute. She doesn’t answer that diverts it to some other issue and I said you violated federal law. This entire election is null and void. Those four emails, two of mine, two of hers, I put up on Twitter, they go viral. Okay. I said Massachusetts deleted ballots, dash ballot images.

Okay. Well, within days of putting that up with September 24, one day later, I’m thrown off Twitter. Now remember, we had moved our campaign from a primary campaign we we had so much support, we said we’ll do a write in campaign. So we’re bonafide candidates. In fact, our campaign slogan, starting September 25, was stopped election fraud. We put out nearly 2 million flyers.

That’s how strong our ground base was. I mean, amazing people Bottoms up. Trump never helped us. The Massachusetts GOP never helped us. No one helped us. Okay, because we had our own independent base among people who really love this country.

So I’m here I’m thrown off Twitter, which is the platform for political office, and a very fake news organization, which does fact checking and you can look them up called lead stories does a hit job on me. They say Dr. Shiva is lying ballots weren’t deleted.

I never said ballots, I said valid images. And in that article, they said they had communicated to the Secretary of State of Massachusetts and they had said they had contacted Twitter to throw me off. Let me repeat that, again. The government of Massachusetts had contacted Twitter to tell them to throw off a US Senate candidate off their platform. Okay.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 23:42

This is the grossest violation of the first amendment right? The first amendment, the highest form of protection was for political speech. I have every right to criticize a government official. In fact, our campaign was against election fraud. So anyway, I’ve tried to find a lawyer, Massachusetts who take it on, we couldn’t find anyone I had to file the lawsuit myself.

Pro Se, it’s called the judge decided to hear our lawsuit, which is the first big victory, no one picked it up. You know, we know Tucker Carlson. He didn’t pick it up. So I go into court, it’s me against three lawyers. And the judge had me read case law called the very famous law called the blump test where I had to prove that the government that Twitter was acting as a state actor, when they took instructions from the government, they became a part of the state you follow. It’s a very interesting area of law.

So I proved that I argued that and it was supposed to be a 20 minute hearing and ended up going for four hours. And in that lawsuit, what we uncovered was the young social media director, cross examination, she blurts out to us that when I was when I put up those four tweets, or those four emails, the state election director told her to contact Twitter through a special portal.

Okay. And the judge said, What do you mean? She goes, we have a partnership with Twitter, we have a trusted Twitter partnership. That means that government has vvip access to Twitter, and it goes, What are you talking about? So the government use their special portal access, which was set up in 2018. I’ll get more into this to contact Twitter.

Okay. And then we find out the state election director, Michel tessari, who I was criticizing a government official, which I have every right to do what you have every right to do. That’s why we broke away from the monarchy, right? So we could critique our government. She had also contacted another organization, everyone should remember this acronym nasod.

National Association of State election directors, the organization, which is the one which figures out if voting machines should be certified or not. And it’s an association of all 50 state election directors who also have a Twitter partnership. So she also contacted them and she was supposed to be their president that year. They also contacted Twitter.

So not only to the government of Massachusetts call, but the force of the state election directors of 50 governments that throw off a US Senate candidate in the middle of his election. The judge was appalled. He gave me all the terms of our preliminary injunction. He said, A you you cannot do this anymore.

You cannot contact Twitter. If you have a problem with Dr. Ira, Dr. Shiva, you go on Twitter and argued out. He said, I don’t know if you know, that’s called the First Amendment. Okay. Anyway, I’m back on Twitter after the elections over November 4. And between November 4, and February one, I’m tweeting away on all sorts of issues, on my displeasure with the job, right.

Displeasure with the mask mandates. But on February 1 of 2021, I once again share those four emails. And within 17 minutes, I’m thrown off Twitter for good. So we went back into court again, we told the judge, Your Honor, when they took me off Twitter the first time they had put in the algorithms.

So anytime I critique the state election director, I’d be thrown off. Anyway, the end result of that was the judge said I want you to bring Twitter into my lawsuit into the courtroom. So now on May 20, it was me against no lawyer wanted to take this on me again, seven lawyers, three from Twitter, three from the government and one from NASA.

The night before that lawsuit, I wish I had the documents here. We discovered playbooks and everyone should listen to this. These playbooks john is going to bring it were documents that were created at Harvard in 2018. And I have found it the night before.

They were documents which originally the theory was laid down in England, and then tested in India and Australia. And then in Taiwan. It was a Twitter partnership where government has a partnership with Twitter with social media companies.

And what we discovered was in 2018, at Harvard, Belfer School of defending democracy, a project, who’s headed by Robbie MOOC, who’s Hillary Clinton’s former, you know, you know, former campaign manager, and also a rhino from Romney’s campaign, both of them had gotten together, and they created this defending democracy project, a very Orwellian term.

And they had decided that they needed to censor Americans, and they created two playbooks. One of them is called the election influence operations guide for state and local officials. And this playbook, it’ll it’ll freak the hell out of you.

It lays out step by step by step how you identify a American citizen as a threat, how you put their severity, how you will monitor them, surveil them, and how you will throw them off Twitter. Okay. And john just got me this and this and you can find it and we’ve exposed it and here, here’s one of the playbooks. Okay.

It’s called the election influence operations playbook for state local officials. And what this playbook has right up front, it says, someone is an enemy of the state. If they say that an election official is corrupt, quote, unquote, that’s what it says in there. If you say an election officials corrupt that is grounds for you to be seen as an influence operators to CIA stuff.

So when I went into court on May 20, the more I held this playbook up and I said, Your Honor, all of these defendants have acted like they don’t know each other. In fact, their names are in this playbook is author’s Twitter’s legal counsel, the defendants, all of them and they have created the censorship infrastructure.

The next day that a judge comes into office because he spent all day reading this and he said this lawsuit will go down in history as a law school case that will be taught in every constitutional class. Again, no press picked up on our lawsuit trumped in help us, obviously the democrats didn’t, right. We were fighting the real historic lawsuit here.

And eventually the judge said you know, would you like to look You’ve done all this on your own, the net of it, it was we took on a lawyer. And then we discovered another document which said that I was being surveillance since June of 2020, along with six other people who were considered the most important threats, because here’s an MIT PhD credit, the way they said your threat was high credibility, high engagement, and high volume.

So I fit that perfectly, right. So the net of this lawsuit was, the judge thought he got freaked out, he goes, Oh, my God, this guy doesn’t just want to go back on Twitter, he wants to take down all of these people, because that’s what our claims were.

So he thought he would bribe me using this lawyer for me to drop all my other claims. And homie wasn’t willing to play that game. Okay. And what ended up happening was he sealed our lawsuit. And he made sure that the diagrams and everything that we found were sealed anyway. The point I’m telling here is that

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 31:00

during this entire process from September to that, in addition to doing this lawsuit, no one funded us we did the computational analysis, like rod said, we expose what occurred in Michigan for Trump, we expose what occurred in Arizona, and recently.

Now what was fascinating to me was during that entire process, when we were exposing all of this, no one funded as I was doing this, you know, I put all my businesses on hold, you know, everything we sacrificed for this country. And what we noticed was on November 4, when I was teaching a class here, Mark Meadows, everyone know Mark Meadows, his chief of staff at Trump’s campaign calls us and he says, How can we help you because I had just done the Michigan analysis which was going viral.

And these guys you know, and and the, the the true patriots and oh my god, Dr. Shiva is fighting for us. So Mark Meadows calls me goes, how can we help you? I go, give me data and I can expose every state’s audits. Well, days go by never give us any data. Rona McDaniels office calls that so the white house called us than the Trump than the RNC call this. I said, Give me data. They don’t give us any data. weeks go by then I tweeted out because I started really wondering if Trump was serious.

I said, Dear President Trump, Dear Mr. Biden, I said I have unequivocal evidence that the election systems in this country completely compromised. Eric Trump reached out to me on Twitter. And I said, Eric, I don’t think anyone really is serious about this.

He said, talk to our lawyer at the Trump campaign. So I’m dealing with three organizations. the Trump campaign had the data, they never gave it to us. So at that point, I came to the end. By the way, all these three parties started putting out emails on fight election fraud, you may have gotten some of them, they raise $300 million. During that period.

During the first quarter of this year, they raised another 75 million. So my end conclusion was that these people are making money off election fraud. They are not serious. So why do I share all this with you? I voted for Trump, many of you probably did. Okay.

Trump, you know, and I had to, unfortunately also critique Trump, because I started seeing him potentially as a not so obvious establishment, because the campaign was locker up, nothing got done, right. The next day, it was Well, that was for the campaign.

Now we move on. Number one, and you have to start looking at these things. We can’t be in a cult, right. Next thing it was. I’m against big pharma. Yet he took money for the inauguration. We collected nearly 200 We’re the ones who started the fire Fauci campaign.

If you remember that we took nearly 200,000 signatures. We sent all the evidence on Valjean, march of 2020. I was the first one to expose Fauci because my field as you know, systems biology, Fauci is a complete fraud. Rand Paul didn’t say anything, then none of these doctors said anything then one of the most important things in life is to do the thing, the right thing at the right time.

Not when not a year later. Okay. So very important to understand Roger Beausoleil and Alan McDonald. You remember him Alan McDonald’s McDonald was a guy who said, Hey, I don’t want the space shuttle that it’ll fly. I’m not going to sign off on it because those O rings aren’t going to work. He was vilified. Okay. Alan McDonald just passed away about a couple of months ago.

He goes one of the most important things in life is to do the right thing at the right time. Well, now you have all these congressmen saying, oh, we’re against the jab mandates and the masks and, you know, Fauci blah, blah, blah. I get emails from Rand Paul saying give me money. Well, where was he a year ago.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 34:50

So this is very important for movements to understand. So what I have also been doing separately, remember, I’m very interested in political theory. I’m very interested in systems So after I ran for senate our campaign slogan was truth, freedom and health, truth, freedom and health.

That’s not a slogan. What it is, is it’s going back to the universal laws of nature. Freedom is a aspect of nature called movement of things called transport. And I’m teaching a very simply System Science movement. That is a phenomenon in general systems theory called transport, freedom.

Without movement of matter, or information or energy, the world would just stop, right? Imagine if the earth and rotate right movement of me being able to move from point A to point B without a job passport movement of me being able to share information with you without the government and Twitter and Facebook intermediating. Right. Freedom is the aspect of transport in nature.

When you have freedom, you can do science, to convert hypothesis into truth. That’s called the scientific method. If you don’t have freedom, you can’t do the conversion process, which is called Getting to truth. So without freedom, we can’t get to truth.

And then, if you have freedom, and you can get to truth, you can figure out what’s right for the health of your body, the health of the infrastructure, etc. And that’s the health aspect, which is the infrastructure, truth, freedom and health is a systems phenomenon related to transport conversion.

So what we started doing was, we realize that you can’t trust these politicians, they’ll even take a good thing and make money off of it. So we today have a movement called truth, freedom and health. And when you take the scientific approach, what you understand is that we have a goal, truth, freedom and health in order to achieve our goal, one of the important things that you realize from systems theory, by the way, all the elites in the world, they teach all their intelligentsia system science.

And system science is a nuclear weapon of the modern world. If you do not understand system science, and you think we’re going to win a movement, you’re out of your mind. It’s like we’re shooting with bows and arrows, and they have a nuclear weapon.

So one of the most important innovations that I believe that I’ve contributed right now separate from email inside the solve is, over the last 50 years, I’ve been able to take the theory of systems, organize it into a curriculum where I can teach people in about an hour to two hours, so you don’t have to go to MIT for 220 years.

But that system science is the foundations of understanding how do we build a political movement, there will be no revolution, without the right revolutionary theory. Just like you can’t build a bridge, without understanding Newton’s laws, maybe you’ll get lucky and you’ll build a bridge.

And maybe you’ll maybe you’ll get lucky. And you can build an airplane but but it may fall out of the sky. But once you understand Bernoulli principle, you can do that, once you understand Maxwell’s equations, you can build a motor.

And we’re not going to be able to build a movement without understanding the physics of how a movement works. So what I want to share with us, one of the things that comes out of that is movements get built bottoms up, no movement in the in the history of human beings fighting for their, their freedom has ever emerged, top down from a politician, etc.

And that’s the opportunity we have today, if we first of all, study the science of systems. And everyone should go to truth, freedom, health, calm, and we’ve made it easy. We have 60,000 people, it’s a global movement. Now, we’re training people, we want to teach people to teach others and one of the central pieces first you have to learn the theory, but we have to go local to go local to go local.

So when rod said that you guys are doing this, with the political theory, we can explosively grow this movement. And one of the important things here is that we learn, go back to the 1800s. In the United States, the American working class is the most fearsome working class to the global elites. Why? Because the American working class had the First Amendment.

It’s gone right now from what our lawsuit has shown, has, fortunately, still the Second Amendment so in the 1800s, there was a great upheaval in the in the in the United States. In fact, by the 1900s, there were revolutions brewing all over the world in India, the Indian workers wanted to oust the British in Russia, the Bolshevik Revolution in the early stages, which was a working class was rising up.

Okay, we’re not talking about Stalin, but I’m talking about when workers were rising up before it was taken over by Stalin ism. When you look at the American working class movement before the democrats or republicans got involved in 1886, just like us, for American workers were hanged. Hanged in America in the Haymarket Chicago for fighting for the eight hour work day, there was a revolution going to take place in this country. Women were the leaders of that revolution, starting the mid 1800s, in places like Lowell, Massachusetts, in places like New York, and I’m sure in places like Portland, there was a bottoms up movement.

In 1900. You know, the measles infection rate was about 14 out of 100,000. By 1948, it 99% of the measles infections rate had disappeared. Why? Because the American working class was rising up and they scared the shit out of the elites. And, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who was a racist, and an elitist was forced to deliver infrastructure.

Child labor was eliminated. We started getting sanitation. We started getting hygiene. We started getting the eight hour work day. And water systems were built that didn’t occur by Democrats or Republicans. It was, it was out of working people, striking building bottoms up trade unions. And that scared the shit out of the elites.

So the growth of the America anything that occurred in America between 1940 to 1980 was the grow. The American Pie grew during that period. Why? Because the American working class was fierce, nearly 100 million people struck.

And we nearly had 11,000 strikes, bottoms up. But in 1950, the right wing and the quote unquote Republicans, colluded with the Democrats, they wanted to make sure a bottoms up movement would never occur again, they never wanted working people organizing independently of the establishment parties. So they started creating the McCarthy era and you have to listen to this.

So they created the Red Scare. If you said workers unite, you must be a Marxist and a communist and from Russia. And that created the conditions for the Democrats. People like Bernie Sanders and the AO C’s to take over the workers movement top down and they created the unions.

So by 1970, the top down unions basically told people not to strike and they helped the right and the left work together. So 1980 till today, there’s only been maybe about 900 strikes 2 million people on the streets fighting.

And during this last 4050 years, the American Pie split into two American pies, one for the 5% and one for the 95% small pie and a big pie for the Jeff B Sosa’s over the last year 600 billionaires doubled their wealth to $2.3 trillion over the last 50 years $50 trillion got transferred from the American working people upwards. Yes, there was socialism for the elites.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 42:34

And where we are at today, if you want to understand where we are today is it the jobs, the mandates, the censorship, the elections being selections is the end process is the end process of a long process that has been taking place in American history.

It’s the end process. And it’s basically about power, profit and control. We’re going back to slavery. It’s saying you can travel from village to village be without the Kings acknowledgement. You can’t you don’t have the right to speak. But we have to understand it’s not just the anti Vax movement. It’s not just the anti mass movement. It’s not just the anti censorship.

Every Tom Dick and Harry on the republicans now is for election integrity to change to change the chain. We have a guy here that I ran against who Trump just endorsed, who said Trump’s election was not stolen. And he actually committed the election fraud against us.

So you have a lot of bullshit going on right now. And the reality is, if we want to win, we have to go back to a central principle, bottoms up movement, working people unite, we got to go beyond left and right beyond black and white truth, freedom and health working people unite.

So when Ron told me you guys were doing this, you know, Southwest worker struck, you have the construction workers in Australia who defied their union who told them, you know, get the job, we have to recognize that Republicans and Democrats are one, it’s hard pill to swallow.

And even if there’s some nice people in that fine, but the reality is no gains are going to be made unless we build a bottoms up movement. And if you have illusions about this, because why vote for anyone, if the election systems are, are controlled. The issues that we’re facing today are fundamental issues, censorship, you know, complete slavery of people telling how they can move what they can, what they have to wear.

And then fundamentally, these election systems, the solutions to this are not going to come from elections. They’re not going to come from lawsuits. They’re not, they’re going to come from the fierce re arising of the American workers Bottoms up. That’s how they’re gonna come.

And that’s the only way they’re gonna come. And we have to no matter what these politicians say, Look, I’ve been involved in the middle of the Arizona audit, you know, I’ll help these I’ll do the analysis. But I’ve seen the gamesmanship, you know, you know, will the Attorney General do something, hopefully he will.

But he’s also looking at, you know, he’s got to watch which way the wind blows. We don’t have 20 years, 30 years, 40 years, the way that history gets accelerated, is through revolutionary bottoms up movements of when we flex our muscles.

Look, if the nurses strike tomorrow, they’re not gonna be able to get enough people. If the American truckers forget the AFL CIO and the Teamsters. That’s only 15% of the truckers. 85% of the truckers in the United States are small businesses. So we need to get the political theory straight.

Without the right political theory. It’s like if you hit a ball, and you’re off by two degrees, it’s going to go 200 yards off. So I can’t I guess I can’t overemphasize, as someone who came from the caste system. Look in India, everyone thinks Gandhi was a great guy, Gandhi was a scumbag.

Okay. In 1920s, Indian workers wanted to rise up and have a good revolution. Gandhi was parachuted in white robe, he was an actor, and he misled the Indian working people told him to shut the hell up, it was good to get their heads beaten in his own nonviolence with something profoundly good. And he basically transferred power from the British elites, to the Indian elites.

So it’s not going to be billionaires, it’s not going to be celebrities, it’s going to be us. And that’s where we’re at. And we’re not going to get clear on this until we have to have the ground movement. But you have to study the political training, you have to read.

And you have to do you have to be the blacksmith, and you have to be the scholar. And that’s where we’re at. That’s the message I wanted to share with you. But we have to build a bottoms up movement. The election systems are completely a sham.

They have so many areas in the election systems, they can manipulate them. That’s where we’re at these election systems. I mean, I knew more as an 18 year old kid, than I knew as a 50 year old running for Senate is they’re completely rigged. We won that election, Massachusetts.

And you have these contradictions. And it’s only going to be us who’s going to do it. So I encourage everyone, you know, we have a lot of truth, freedom and health people in Massachusetts, but one person who understands political theory, well is equivalent to an army of a million.

You could have a million people on the streets, but they could be misled. That’s what happened with the civil rights movement. The Kennedys brought in Martin Luther King, they controlled him.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 47:33

Okay, the not so obvious establishment is the biggest killer. And the sooner we learn that, we will have an explosive movement that will change the world fast. But there’s always been the establishment and the not so obvious establishment in the quote unquote, anti vaccine movement has been Robert Kennedy. Complete, not so obvious establishment.

When I got into the medical Freedom Movement, I found out he endorsed Hillary Clinton three times. Hillary Clinton is pro vaccine, Hillary Clinton’s pro Monsanto. And he says, Well, she’s a Democrat, they always want to do backroom deals, they do not want to build a bottoms up movement.

And that’s where we’re at. And that’s the wisdom we need. If we want to win, if we want to lose, we follow politicians follow Republican or Democrat, it’s a recipe for failure. We got to build a bottoms up movement, we have to honor those working people of the 1800s.

We have to honor the working people all over the world. And we better get our shit straight this time. Okay. And we have a huge opportunity. Thank you.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 48:42

What’s that? Oh, view everyone back Shiva.

48:45

We have a saying here in citizens restoring liberty. And it is it we didn’t invent it here, but we picked it up. And it is, we are the leaders and we’ve been waiting for so be the leader.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 48:58

Exactly. Yep, that’s the issue is we want to be catalysts. Ultimately, because what we tell people in the truth, freedom and health is learn this and you got to go neighbor to neighbor. So what we’ve done, which can support what you’re doing is, you know, we you know, fortunately 2002, I’ve a building here in Cambridge, I built my own data center.

So everything we’re building is in our data center. We don’t put anything on Amazon. It’s all hosted here. So we’ve created the educational model we’ve created, where leaders can have their own private YouTube channels here.

And then more importantly, we’re teaching people how to go on the ground on the ground on the ground. And I think that’s it’s the only way to win. It’s not sexy. It’s not like you know, you’re hanging out with the Kardashians, right? But you go on the ground, neighbor to neighbor.

That’s how we’re going to win. We’re not going to win top down voting for these fools left or right. I don’t care how good they sound

49:59

absolutely I often said that there is no revolution. That’s not a natural revolution. And it sounds like the bottoms up movement. And I just want to say that I’m absolutely stunned by your intellect, bind with your sense of humor, and also your common sense. And I think it is going to be a grassroots bottoms up movement, led by a leader named Dr. Shiva Ida Ray 2024. for President.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 50:26

Well, listen, I can’t run for president right. But we don’t need to run for president. We know we need to build a movement by the way, I just want to let all of you know we have about I am also putting this out we have close to about close to 1200 people worldwide watching this concurrently, but um, but we have leaders and catalysts now in Australia, in New Zealand, in Japan, and so we can connect all of these people but I if I were to beg you guys for one thing, please learn political theory.

Come on Monday, evenings come as many but if we can get people really understanding this and making sure that we can never allow a the not so obvious establishment scumbags ever in our movements, they’re the ones who mislead us.

Every move. And the good news is, typically there’s been the establishment in the controlled opposition. But our movement out exists to expose that and that hasn’t occurred. Typically in history. Typically, people get screwed over and they go, Oh my God, we got screwed over by blah, blah, blah, right. And the establishment is very, very clever.

To find the not so obvious establishment in the civil rights movement. It was Martin Luther King, in the Indian Movement, it was Mahatma Gandhi, right? And the left and the right now we’re playing with Bernie Sanders. And I would argue, and I’ve been, you know, Trump, you know, has supported what I do, etc.

But, you know, he better get his shit together, okay, because he surrounds himself with a bunch of fools. complete fool. So I’ve had to critique him. And, and we have to, because he didn’t do shit to Hillary. He kept Fauci there, he did operation warp speed, and you can see the video he tells those people, I will walk with you to the Capitol, and he got in his SUV and he went the other way, you know, who got locked up? People who supported him got locked up, Hillary did not get locked up. So we have to understand that it has to be us. It has to be.

52:30

Yeah, absolutely.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 52:34

Well, it was an honor speaking to you all, but let’s build this movement. We have to build it and and there’s more of us than them. And look, we’re the ones who do the election audits. We’re the ones who do the math, we’re the ones who do the we’re the electricians, we’re the engineers were the plumbers, we’re the nurses, and nothing and we have to start honoring ourselves.

Because the brainwashing that takes place on that freakin TV every day, and every time you go through the shopping malls and put up a picture of the stupid Harry and the stupid, what’s an idiot, Megan and, and the kings and the queens and, and the celebrities, this is all brainwashing, to diminish our own divinity.

We have to go into ourselves and recognize that we are, you know, we are a divine spark of God, it is our responsibility to do this. That’s what this is about. It’s about all of us, honoring ourselves. This is really about you. Ultimately, it’s about your relationship with your Creator.

And the more you define that, because all of us are going to die one day we’re gone one day, our history will be determined by what we did. And the courage we had courage has always been the ingredient in history that has changed the course of history. So thank you. We got to win. We got to fight. We got to stand up. Bottoms up. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Taiwan: An Actual “Munich Moment”

Taiwan: An Actual “Munich Moment”

Rightly, it’s become a meme for those who hold that the last twenty years were a mistake.The “Munich moment,”  referring to Britain’s eventually pointless appeasement of Hitler, has been so invoked in politics, particularly by noxious neoconservatives, as to lose almost all meaning in an era where supermajorities of Americans correctly hold the Iraq war to have been a mistake, as well as thinking more or less the same its kindred conflict in Afghanistan. The Taliban just reclaimed power in Kabul without obviously and clearly ruining American life. But you remember that fable about the boy and the wolf? Eventually there was a wolf. Unfortunately, the United States — fatigued, cynical, jaded and broke — faces such an unfortunate turn of events now in Taipei, after twenty years of cry-wolf intellectual hand-wringing. “Trade free with China and time is on our side,” then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush said in 2000. It would be the only threat the 43rd president wouldn’t inflate. On brand for America’s worst president, he sadly got it wrong again. Ross Douthat reviewed Elbridge Colby’s last month for the Times, and lent some color and history on Washington, D.C. after 9/11: “Everything in my profession revolved around the War on Terror. And everyone I knew who was even the least bit conservative (a category that included many Democrats) was ready to invade Iraq — and probably Syria and Iran for good measure. … Everything in my profession revolved around the War on Terror. And everyone I knew who was even the least bit conservative (a category that included many Democrats) was ready to invade Iraq — and probably Syria and Iran for good measure. Everyone except one college friend, Elbridge Colby, then newly planted at the State Department.”Douthat details how Colby, consigliere to prominent but controversial Senator Josh Hawley, thinks that Taiwan, and has the credibility of having been right before:“Only China threatens American interests in a profound way, through a consolidation of economic power in Asia that imperils our prosperity and a military defeat that could shatter our alliance system. Therefore American policy should be organized to deny Beijing regional hegemony and deter any military adventurism — first and foremost through a stronger commitment to defending the island of Taiwan.”  Colby is simpatico with arch-realists like John J. Mearsheimer, and yours truly, that China is different. I remember having dinner with Mearsheimer a few years ago, when he predicted that the China debate had the worrying potential to split the realist and restraint coalitions. Zooming in on one side… Still very much unified, for better or worse, around former President Donald Trump, the American right has split in recent years on the question of China, and whether Taiwan should be fed to the Communists in Beijing. Those who have been mistreated by cancel culture, such as prominent former Trump speechwriter Darren J. Beattie, see little worth preserving under the current “American regime” and the tone of Beattie’s muckracking Revolver News startup matches that view. If there is to be a showdown, it is a civil, not international one, seems to be the party line. But what if that’s wrong?America has been a rowdy, disunited place before: ethnic tension isn’t exactly organic to the 21st century. different flavors of European ethnic groups used to kill each other in American streets. German propaganda in both World Wars held that Americans were too heterogeneous and hateful to mount a fighting force. To be sure, the fraternal hatred was real, but the conflicts ironically produced the opposite result, especially after Berlin’s final defeat in 1945: defeat of the enemy, and a more united, cohesive America that had bled and borne the battle together. Today, the Chinese economy is on par with America’s, that is, twice the relative size the Nazi economy ever was, to say nothing of the Soviets, which was never more than 44 percent of US production. Even if China is in trouble economically, and signs points to yes, comparisons to the Japan scare of the 1980’s fall flat: China is far more populous, far more militant, and far openly anti-Western than the titans in Tokyo ever were. In fact, if things are bound to go tits-up in Beijing, that’s actually an argument that Beijing will act rashly and concerningly sooner rather than later. And if so, America will have a belligerent foe on its hands that is an actual peer competitor since the first time since the British Empire and the ages of Jefferson and Lincoln (which were not short on parallel civil strife). And, in this sense, Taiwan is the crucible. Projections on how it would be done range: from a People’s Liberation Army amphibious landing to a bombing campaign. It’s true, Taiwan is neither militarized, nor young enough to conjure up a legitimate picture of an insurgency in the Iraq style. Some on the right essentially make the case that the country’s paltry birthrate and embrace of LGBTQ values means Taipei should be fed to Beijing. That’s rich stuff: parroting the party line of the state that brought the world the “One Child” policy and forced abortion. Which is to say nothing of building common cause with charmless American voices that hold that the Founding, an astonishing act of human liberation, was inherently evil. Witness Chinese officials, utterly shamelessly, lecturing American leaders in Anchorage this past spring. And anyone who knows Taiwanese politics will report: what young people there are in Taiwan, they overwhelmingly favor remaining a separate country, hence the rise to dominance of the  pro-American Democratic People’s Party (DPP). The Chinese arguments for annexation are as frankly spurious as Adolf Hitler’s once were. Take it from a country that is running concentration camps in 2021. The Taiwanese population is not a willing partner, and Taiwan hasn’t been ruled by the Chinese state in some time: it was a Japanese dominion up until the end of World War II, as anyone who has seen the imperial architecture still in Taipei can attest. America can’t be everywhere, all the time– and shouldn’t be– but if the Chinese are allowed to rain bombs over Taipei, a city with the size and sophistication of New York, with the whole shebang recorded on smartphones, and the world does nothing? Then we have, indeed, entered, as Aldous Huxley said in 1932, a brave, new world.The hopeful truth is this is unlikely to happen. Beijing may act because they rightly intuit that Biden is the most dove-ish president on China they’re likely to ever get again (contra the online right, the appetite for China dovishness among ambitious Republican politicians is exactly null). But the PLA would also be acting. in part, because they read and believed American think tankers who wailed that getting out of Afghanistan presaged abandoning Taiwan. If anything, given the stakes for Biden, the opposite will be proved true. And rightly so.

Halderman is no fan of Donald Trump, and from his public statements I would surmise that his politics are normal academic Lefty, but intellectually honest normal academic Lefty. Professor Halderman becomes a key part of our story now, because Professor Halderman was commissioned to perform a professional analysis of Dominion Voting cybersecurity and cyber-integrity, or lack thereof. His 25,000 word monograph on the subject may turn out to be the MacGuffin of this pivotal moment in American history.
Here is how that came to be:
In August 2017 Georgia politicians (Democrat and Republican) filed a federal lawsuit against Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger on the grounds that use of Direct Electronic Voting systems (aka “DREs” aka “voting machines”) violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights to due process and equal protection. The case is Curling v. Raffensperger.That case moved through the Courts until in March 2020, the federal district judge then deciding that they were correct and that Georgia had to get rid of its machines.In that process a Michigan professor of cybersecurity, Alex Halderman, who has been leading the study of voting machines for over a decade, was commissioned by the court to inspect a new Dominion machine. He wrote a 25,000 word report on the subject. For reasons that will be explained below that report has yet to see the light of day with the public, but I think it safe to say that the findings he expresses match the excerpts of Congressional testimony shown in the video below.Weeks before the November 2020 election,  Federal Judge Amy Totenberg wrote a decision that indicated profound mistrust of the voting systems and a desire to get rid of them, but found it was too late to unplug them for the November 2020 election then only weeks away. Judge Totenberg sealed every scrap of information she could about the case, including Professor Halderman’s monograph.Whatever is in that report is so important that on September 21, 2021 (just over three weeks ago) Halderman moved the court for permission to break the protective order on his findings, that he might get them to DHS-CISA. He makes clear in his submission to the court that the vulnerabilities he found could easily be used by domestic or foreign actors to rig an election on these machines, and that there are 16 states at risk, and that it is a matter of national security.  Halderman states “these are not theoretical problems but rather specific flaws in [Dominion] software” and his “prepared to demonstrate proof-of-concept malware that can … steal votes.” (paragraph 2)Dominion is ignoring the flaws he has identified and there are “very likely equally other critical flaws that are yet to be discovered.”   (paragraphs 3-4)This is an “urgent”  matter of national security and “nefarious actors” may be preparing to “exploit” these flaws in upcoming elections (paragraph 8)Professor Halderman carefully avoids saying anything about November 2020, but submitted emails to show he is communicating with CISA and that they stand ready to work with, taking the vulnerabilities he found so that they might be patched before the next election (which in many states occurs in November 2021).Judge Amy Totenberg has refused to let Professor Halderman provide his report to DHS-CISA. Instead, she said, DHS must write her a letter directly asking for the report (which everyone knows will never happen), and then she will consider it.
Lest the enormity of that slip past the reader, let me tease it out again. Our nation’s leading professor on the cybervulnerabilities of voting systems is saying in a report (as he says publicly in the video below) that Dominion’s machines are compromised. Because there is an election two weeks from now he wants to warn, not the affected states themselves, but warn simply our federal government about the hacks he has found and which we must assume the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, and everyone else has found), so that their DHS-CISA has the information to do its job. But he is not allowed to give that information to the US Government because he is blocked by a federal judge named Amy Totenberg (sister of NPR Nina Totenberg).
If only there were a pattern….
Explosive Discovery On Dominion Voting Machines
PS I would think any state Attorney General trying to get to the bottom of election meshugus might do well by subpoenaing that report from Georgia, or from Professor Halderman himself.
PPS I cannot let this moment pass without celebrating the schizophrenia this is inducing in the Left. The Daily Beast recent reporting shows they understand the seriousness of the issue, but struggle to reconcile that with their NPC-programming. They wish to take positions simultaneously that:
this is an extremely serious problem for our society;we all know there was no election fraud affecting the November 2020 election because, well, we all already know it.
NATIONAL SECURITY:Judge Seals Report on Voting Machine Vulnerability ‘ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY’A judge in a Georgia election security lawsuit is working to tamp down voting machine conspiracy theories. But sealing a court file could stoke the controversy even more.Jose Pagliery – Political Investigations ReporterShannon Vavra – National Security ReporterPublished Aug. 13, 2021 4:28AM ETIt’s the kind of report that could be weaponized by those looking to cast doubt on U.S. election results: a cybersecurity analysis that found flaws in Georgia’s voting machines and warns about the potential for future attacks. But a federal judge has sealed the report, and her attempt to shield the public from bad faith efforts to undermine the 2020 election could instead fuel the conspiracy theory dumpster fires—and keep the voting machine maker from figuring out how to fix it.The 25,000-word report, commissioned by election integrity groups, does not touch on the 2020 results at all. But the report—authored by a University of Michigan computer science professor who has testified numerous times on Capitol Hill about U.S. election security, J. Alex Halderman—claims that Georgia’s ballot marking devices (BMDs) “suffer from specific, highly exploitable vulnerabilities that allow attackers to change votes despite the state’s purported defenses,” all byusing malware.In a public court document, Halderman urged that his report be shared with Georgia election officials and the voting machine manufacturer to “address the vulnerabilities it describes before attackers exploit them.” Halderman wrote his report after he was given 12 weeks of access to an unused Dominion ICX voting machine, according to court documents.Several sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity told The Daily Beast that the secret report makes two points: hacking these specific ballot marking devices is easier than previously believed, and Georgia does not have a process in place to catch it if it ever happens. “Georgia voters face an extreme risk that [ballot marking device]-based attacks could manipulate their individual votes and alter election outcomes,” Halderman wrote in a signed declaration on Aug. 2.While Halderman’s claims are unverified, don’t address the 2020 election, and provide no evidence that anyone has taken advantage of the alleged vulnerabilities, their mere existence will likely be enough for many “Stop the Steal” advocates who believe the 2020 results were illegitimate despite no evidence of widespread voter fraud.Which is perhaps why U.S. District Court Judge Amy Totenberg made the report a “confidential document.”At a recent hearing, Totenberg sealed the report, citing a strong reluctance to draw any public scrutiny to the sensitive details in the case. Totenberg would not even allow an election integrity group to openly advocate for disclosure of the report, according to a transcript of a July 26 court hearing obtained by The Daily Beast. Instead, the judge asked that any such argument be filed in secret under seal. “There are so many other ways to educate the public besides trying to usethis case,” Totenberg warned on the call. “I’m at the end of my rope about that.”Totenberg decided to limit circulation of the report, opting to keep it to “attorneys’ eyes only”—and away from engineers at Dominion itself— out of a concern that exposing it to company employees would make it “subject to disclosure in other litigation.” “I’m concerned enough about the information contained in it… I have seen how this can blow up,” Totenberg said, according to the transcript.That decision could stoke conspiracy theorists, but experts in the rightwing media ecosystem were also concerned that any information about potential issues with voting machines might be exploited. Sam Jackson, an assistant professor who teaches about online extremism at the University at Albany, told The Daily Beast that the mere existence of this story could fuel conspiracy theories. “I would not be surprised to see some far-right media outlets run very inflammatory headlines that are deliberate misreadings of this piece,” he said.Matt Gertz, a senior fellow at Media Matters for America, which scrutinizes right-leaning media, expects the “very well-developed conspiracy theory network” built in recent years on social media and alternative TV stations like Newsmax and One America News Network to wrongfully use the existence of the report to “undermine the validity of elections in the minds of conservatives.”“They will use anything they can to fan the flames of these conspiracy theories,” Gertz said.
Got it?
Editors note: If you are having trouble following the logic, here it is. Halderman’s report shows that hacking these machines is easy, so “Georgia voters face an extreme risk that [ballot marking device]-based attacks could manipulate their individual votes and alter election outcomes.” And Georgia will not catch it if it happens. The same is true of 16 other states using these systems. That is highly concerning. Unless a Republican says the same thing, in which case it is a conspiracy theory. So when the judge suppresses the best information our country has about an issue of national self-determination, it is not actually suppression, it is “stopping a conspiracy theory”. Because a Republican said it. And the real problem with letting citizens know that votes can be manipulated and election outcomes altered… is that conservatives might use that knowledge to “undermine the validity of elections in the minds of conservatives” (though why an election in which votes are manipulated and outcomes altered has “validity” is considered something so obvious the Daily Beast need not address it).
Is this starting to seem strange to anyone else?

Arizona GOP State Senator Wendy Rogers continues to push for accountability for the 2020 election steal across the nation. Today she announced 138 legislators from 38 states had signed a letter calling for a 50-state audit, decertification where appropriate, and a possible convening of the US House of Representatives.

Rogers has been tireless in pushing for resolution of the election fraud that occurred on Nov 3rd. It has been revealed that although concentrated in six battleground states, election fraud also occurred nationwide, hence the call for a 50-state audit.

There has been a concerted effort by globalist corrupt media to downplay the fraud that was revealed in the Maricopa County Audit Report that was released in September.

Joe Biden is a Radical Abortion Activist and Unborn Children are the Victims

Joe Biden is a Radical Abortion Activist and Unborn Children are the Victims

Joe Biden may be the left’s puppet on a lot of things, but abortion isn’t one of them.
In the past two years, the onetime March for Lifer has become a true believer in the fringe wing of his party, where destroying babies in the womb is concerned. His Justice Department (when it isn’t trying to prosecute parents for speaking up at school board meetings) has been frantically fighting to stop Texas’ pro-life law from taking effect with almost eerie determination.
In this game of legal pingpong, the Biden administration has been angrily firing off briefs any time a court has agreed to let the law take effect. The latest chapter in this whole drama happened over last weekend, when the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily lifted a judge’s ban on the law while the two sides slug it out in court.
The Biden Justice Department was furious, insisting that the state’s decision to ban abortion at six weeks is “obvious[ly] unconstitutional” and, as such, Texas shouldn’t be allowed to enforce the law while the lawsuit moves forward.
“If Texas’ scheme is permissible, no constitutional right is safe from state-sanctioned sabotage of this kind,” the Justice Department told the judges on the 5th Circuit. “Partisans of one stripe or another might cheer these outcomes, but they should horrify anyone committed to the principle that this diverse nation is bound by one Constitution.”
Of course, that’s tame compared to some of the left’s other beefs with the Texas law—like the hardships endured by “pregnant men.”

In USA Today, writers bemoan the new and allegedly unjust challenges that Texas’ six-week abortion limit puts on people who identify as transgender. In one of the craziest arguments for dismantling the law, extremists argue, “Getting an abortion while trans was always hard. In Texas, a new law puts outsized burdens on them.”
Like everyone else who stumbled across the story, the Media Research Center’s Matt Philbin almost didn’t believe it. “A hearty congratulations to Texas ‘trans men and nonbinary people’ for really upping their victimhood game,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, the real victims—innocent unborn children—continue to be the object of Biden’s obsession, despite his church leaders’ disgust. If Biden claims to be a devout Catholic, Archbishop Joseph Naumann fired back at the president, “I would urge him to act like one … .” And yet, eight months into this killing culture, Biden’s pro-abortion fixation rivals that of even former President Barack Obama’s.
Nothing, not even the overwhelming opinion of the country he’s leading, seems to dissuade this president. Biden, who’s “far from governing as a ‘personally pro-life politician,” National Review Online’s editors note, is everything pro-abortion activists could have hoped” for. And everything God-fearing Americans must stand against.

BREAKING: New Questions about U.S. Capitol Police Shooting of Unarmed Ashli BabbittDHS Ends Worksite Enforcement to Protect ‘Noncitizen Victims’ from DeportationTargeting Trump: Durham Uncovers New Clinton, FBI Connections in Russia Probe

BREAKING: New Questions about U.S. Capitol Police Shooting of Unarmed Ashli Babbitt
Previously secret records we have obtained show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt in the U.S. Capitol on January 6. The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police. 
We received 532 pages of documents through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit filed after DC failed to respond to two April, 2021 FOIA requests we submitted to the Metropolitan Police Department and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for records related to Babbitt’s death (Judicial Watch v. The District of Columbia (No. 2021 CA 001710 B)).
Babbitt was shot and killed as she climbed through a broken interior window in the United States Capitol. The 14-year Air Force veteran was unarmed. The identity of the shooter was kept secret by Congress as well as federal and local authorities for eight months until U.S. Capitol Police officer Michael Byrd went public to try to defend his killing of Ms. Babbitt.
On April 14, 2021, the Justice Department issued a press release stating: “The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice will not pursue criminal charges against the U.S. Capitol Police officer involved in the fatal shooting of 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt …”
The new records include the January 6, 2021, Metro PD Death Report for Babbitt (identified as Ashli Elizabeth McEntee-Babbitt Pamatian). The investigators note that the possible Manner of Death was “Homicide (Police Involved Shooting).” The narrative description of the “Terminal Event” (Babbitt’s death) notes that “the victim was shot inside of the U.S. Capitol building. After being shot, the victim was transported to Medstar for advance life support, however after several attempts to revive the victim, she succumb [sic] to her injury and was pronounced dead at 1515 hours by Dr. [redacted] the attending physician.” Under the “Investigation/Medical History” portion of the report, the investigators wrote, Babbitt “was involved in a first amendment demonstration at the U.S. Capitol…. the decedent was shot by a member of Law Enforcement after breaching a secured room at First Street, Southeast, Washington, DC, (U.S. Capitol Building).” Under the description of the Body, the investigators note, “The decedent suffered a single shot wound to the upper portion of the left chest near the clavicle.”
In a January 6, 2021, “Incident Report,” under “Public Narrative,” the investigators wrote, “On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, Subject-1 had entered the United States Capitol during a riotous event. While inside of the building, Subject-1 had attempted to enter a secured area and was shot in the chest. Subject-1 was transported to a local trauma hospital where lifesaving efforts provide futile. Subeject-1 was pronounced dead at 1515 hours by Dr. [redacted].”
Under the “Internal Narrative” section, the investigators wrote:
On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, Lieutenant Michael Byrd of the Unites States Capitol Police was assigned as the House Chamber Commander during the day work tour of duty. At approximately 1446 hours, while providing protection to the House Chambers during a riotous act, Lieutenant Byrd discharged his issued service pistol and struck Subject-1 in the chest. Lieutenant Byrd’s issued service pistol was initially secured by members of the United States Capitol Police, Internal Affairs Division, however, the service pistol was ultimately taken by the Department of Forensic Sciences. The office involved shooting is being investigated by the MPD-IAD and is assigned IS# [redacted].
On January 7, 2021, a “Senior Police Officer/Agent” in the Metro PD Internal Affairs Division emailed an Assistant U.S. Attorney:
[P]lease let this serve as an official notification regarding a serious use of force. On January 6, 2021, United States Capitol Police Lieutenant Michael Byrd … was involved in a fatal, Use of Force (Service Pistol) approximately 1446 hours while in an area of the Capitol building known as the Speakers Lobby. Lieutenant Byrd discharged his service pistol one time which struck Ms. Ashli McEntee in her left shoulder … I will be the lead agent regarding Lieutenant Byrd’s UOF
An April 14, 2021, letter from Assistant U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips to Metro PD Assistant Chief Wilfredo Manlapaz, notifies Manlapaz:
This office has considered the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged use of excessive force in the above-captioned case [United States Capitol Police Lieutenant Michael Byrd]. We have decided to decline criminal prosecution of the above-listed officer as a result of this incident. Accordingly, this matter is referred to you for whatever administrative action you deem appropriate.
A Metro PD Internal Affairs Division report indicates that the Internal Affairs Division interviewed Lt. Michael Byrd and another United States Capitol Police officer (whose name is withheld), on January 6, 2021, at 7:38 p.m. and the interview was recorded. The investigators note that Byrd, on duty that day since 7:00 a.m., was only equipped with his service weapon, but no ASP (telescoping baton) or OC (pepper spray). He’d last qualified on the shooting range on October 22, 2020. The report notes, “Lieutenant Byrd declined to provide a statement until he can consult an attorney.” The interviewing agent asked Byrd to have his attorney contact him.
The records include a January 6, 2021, Internal Affairs Division report of an interview conducted of a United States Capitol Police Sergeant, whose name is withheld:
Someone on the House Floor shouted that there had been shots fired. Sergeant [redacted] was advised that the sound was breaking glass, not gunshots. He radioed that the report of gunshots was incorrect, that it was glass breaking. Sergeant [redacted] was approached by an officer who advised that the sound was, in fact, gunshots. Sergeant- went back over the radio and reported that there were gunshots on the House Floor.
Sergeant [redacted] walked out of the House Chamber, into the Speaker’s Lobby and observed glass being broken out of the doors and windows at the east end of this area. He observed that an officer and Lieutenant Byrd had taken up positions and had their guns out. Sergeant [redacted] took his gun out and positioned himself behind a pillar in the Speaker’s Lobby.
A glass panel came completely out of one of the windows and a protester started to come through the opening. There was a lot of screaming and Sergeant—heard someone yelling, “get back, get back.”
Sergeant [redacted] was positioned furthest away from this barricaded door and Lieutenant Byrd was positioned the closest.
Sergeant [redacted] observed a white, female protester was climbing through an opened area where the glass pane had been knocked out. He heard a gunshot and this female fell backwards through the opening. The crowd on the other side of the barricaded east doors, began to step back and some put their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] observed Lieutenant Byrd step back just after hearing the gunshot. He did not see anything in the female protester’s hands prior to the gunshot.
Sergeant [redacted] never went on the other side of the barricaded east door. He also did not know that it was Lieutenant Byrd who shot his gun until he talked to him moments after it occurred. Lieutenant Byrd looked upset and stated, “I was the one who took the shot.”
In a written transcript of the interview of the aforementioned U.S. Capitol Police sergeant, it appears his name is Sergeant McKenna. He says during the interview that the woman climbing through the window was wearing a “gray sweater.” The interviewee continued:
Uh, I saw Lieutenant Byrd kinda. I don’t know if it was before or after. Cause I was trying to figure this out of, but there was at one point where I remember seeing him and he kind of went like this and then came back up again. Uh, I don’t know if that was from him taking the shot and then stepping back from that shot or if it was before that, I can’t, no matter how I tried to rack my brain, I can’t, I can’t figure out when that happened, but uh, so I don’t know if something happened to him where [sic] caused him to take the shot or not.
***
I actually did what I did, but, uh, I was just, I dunno, I don’t know why it was such a crazy hectic moment that I don’t know what else I could add to it.
The interviewer asks the sergeant if he saw anything in the woman’s hands as she was climbing through the window, and he replies, “I didn’t see anything in her hands now.” Asked when he realized Byrd shot the woman, the sergeant replied, “I said, what, you know? And then he was like, I was the one who took the shot and I was like …” Speaking of Byrd’s reaction the sergeant said, “No, his eyes were red. He was, you could see he was visibly upset and he just, you know, kind of comfort him and told him, you know, we gotta get outta here.” The interviewing agent asked the sergeant about Babbitt being shot, “Did you go up to her [?].” He replied, “No, no, no. I maintained my position.”
After the shooting, the sergeant said Byrd directed him and other officers to go down “into the subway.” The interviewing agent then asks the sergeant several questions, saying, “And I know this is kind of obvious, but, but, I’m gonna ask it anyhow. You’ve worked for the Capitol police department for [redacted] now.” Sergeant replies, “Yes.” The agent then asks, “This was not a typical day, was it?” Sergeant replies, “Definitely not my craziest day there.” The agent, “Nothing like this has with now, has it.” Sergeant replies, “No I’d say the closest one was when we had the, the shots fired back in 2004, 2005 in the Rayburn building …” The agent continues, “Not to pull your man card at all, but was this a frightening situation?” Sergeant replies, “Oh yeah.” The sergeant continued, “Oh yeah. I’m not afraid to say I was, I was scared shit.”
In a January 6, 2021, summary report of an interview of another United States Capitol Police officer by the Internal Affairs Division investigator, the interviewee, who was immediately behind Byrd in the Speaker’s Lobby when Byrd shot Babbitt, said “He did not see Ms. McEntee [Babbitt] in possession of any potential weapons.” The report continued, “He reiterated that he did not observe that she was armed.” The United States Capitol Police officer claimed that “Lieutenant Byrd was shaking, he did not say anything…. Byrd was nervous, teary-eyed, and appeared very upset. His voice also shaky when he called for medical assistance over the radio. Lieutenant Byrd was still very upset.”
In the January 16, 2021, interview transcript of the above United States Capitol Police officer who witnessed the shooting of Babbitt, he reported that a man with a beard in a suit attended to Babbitt after she was shot, and both he and the sergeant above believed the man was with the House Sergeant-at-Arms office, but neither provided his identity. When asked about Lt. Byrd’s demeanor after the shooting, the officer said about Byrd, “He was shaky. He was, he was teary eyed. You know, you can just tell, like, I ain’t gonna say when somebody regrets to do something, when somebody is just nervous, you know, they’ll rub their head, they’ll pace back and forth.” When asked if he heard any verbal commands given by police prior to Babbitt being shot, he replied, “Not at that point” and then “I do not recall that.”
Another Capitol Police officer interviewed on February 4, 2021, by Metro PD’s Internal Affairs Division advised that prior to Babbitt being shot, “He did not hear any verbal commands.”
Another Capitol Police officer was interviewed on February 4, 2021. In the transcript of his interview, he said that after the shooting of Babbitt, Lt. Byrd “was down and out” and “almost in tears.”  He noted that when Babbitt was shot, “it wasn’t that loud”, despite having one of his ears completely uncovered. He also reported that he did not hear any verbal commands given by officers.
A January 6, 2021, telephone interview report was of a man who’d claimed to have been in the House Chambers. The man said he saw Lt. Byrd position himself behind a pillar and claimed he heard Byrd shout “loud verbal commands” stating that he would “shoot.” The interviewee also said Byrd fired twice. He went on to say that he felt Byrd had “saved several people’s lives” through his actions. According to the transcript, the interviewee “reached out” to the Metro PD to give his statement.
In the transcript of this interview, the interviewee said, “We started talking about evacuating the, uh, all the members or we didn’t really have that conversation.” He went on to say of Byrd, “He was yelling, he was giving commands. Um, he was saying, I will shoot. Uh, he was saying some other stuff. I couldn’t clearly make out what he was saying, but he was definitely, uh, giving commands, no question about it.” He continued: “He [Byrd], uh, did everything he could do…. He was by himself, we were defending the front door and they were shaking it.” He went on to claim that Byrd “fired two shots.” The interviewee said he had a “conversation” with Byrd after Byrd shot Babbitt. He claimed that Byrd was “giving commands” and “threatening to use lethal force.”
A DC Department of Forensic Sciences crime scene examination report filed January 11, 2021, indicated that among Babbitt’s personal possessions was a “Para force” folding knife.
A DC Forensics crime scene examination report dated January 10, 2021, indicated that one spent shell casing was recovered from the scene. A police service weapon from “P1” [Lt. Byrd] was turned over to the Forensic department. The police observed a blood trail from the hallway outside the Speaker’s Lobby doors leading down to the first floor of the House in the security area. Babbitt’s backpack contained clothing, stickers, U.S. currency, a face mask, a California driver’s license in the name of Ashli McEntee, four credit cards in the same name, gloves, sunglasses, a wallet and cigarettes. The handgun turned over was a Glock 22 .40 cal. The shell casing was SPEER 40 S&W. 15 remaining cartridges were also turned over with a magazine. A “Trump Nation” and blood-spattered “Trump 2020” flags were also recovered.
In the June 15, 2021, official Internal Affairs Division Investigative Report issued on the Use of Force shooting of Babbitt by Lt. Michael Byrd, the Metro PD investigators noted that the “Violations that led to police contact” were “Felony Rioting/Unlawful Entry” and the “Violations during police contact” was “Felony Rioting.” The investigators further noted that Babbitt had no outstanding arrest warrants, but an entry under “Previous arrests” was fully redacted.
A description of events on January 6 in another report indicates that it was a “representative” on the House floor who first shouted “Shots fired” on January 6. The investigators note, “The crowd on the outside of the previously barricaded east doors began to step back, and some raised their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] did not see anything in Ms. Babbitt’s hands prior to hearing the gunshot.” According to the investigators they, “recovered ‘a para force’ folding knife in Ms. Babbitt’s pants pocket.”
These records are part of our broader investigation into the death of Babbitt and the January 6 disturbance.
In September, we filed a FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice seeking records related to the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol Building.
We recently filed a motion for discovery in our lawsuit against the United States Capitol Police (USCP) for emails and videos concerning the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. The Capitol Police are trying to shut down the lawsuit by arguing that the requested records are “not public records.”
On August 3, we obtained new documents showing the Washington, DC, Medical Examiner submitted a request to cremate Babbitt two days after gaining custody of her body. The documents also showed that Babbitt’s fingerprints were emailed to a person supposedly working for the DC government, which resulted in Microsoft “undeliverable” messages written in Chinese characters being returned.
In May, we sued both the Department of the Interior and the Department of Defense for records regarding the deployment of armed forces around the Capitol complex in DC during January and February of 2021.
We also filed a lawsuit for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s communications with the Pentagon in the days after the January 6 incident.
Once again, it is remarkable that a private group, Judicial Watch is doing the basic oversight, investigative and educational work that Congress and the corrupted media refuse to do. And, as you can see, much more is coming.

DHS Ends Worksite Enforcement to Protect ‘Noncitizen Victims’ from Deportation
The Biden administration is dismantling our borders and the enforcement of laws that might serve to curtail in a small way the invasion of our nation. Our Corruption Chronicles blog reports on the latest Biden assault on the rule of law on immigration matters:
In a major policy shift to help illegal immigrants in the U.S. workforce, the Biden administration is ordering the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to end mass worksite enforcement operations that often result in large-scale arrests and deportations of undocumented employees. The administration is also directing agencies that operate under DHS, which was created after 9/11 to counter terrorism, secure borders and uphold the nation’s economic security, to protect foreigners working in the country illegally by shielding them from removal proceedings when they get caught.
The administration describes them as “noncitizen victims” and it wants to “ensure” that they are not placed in immigration proceedings when the businesses that hired them are investigated. A memorandum issued this week by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas directs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to assist illegal immigrants by taking actions to promote a fair labor market and support more effective enforcement of wage protections, workplace safety, labor rights, and other employment laws and standards. “The agencies must also develop strategies for prioritizing workplace enforcement against unscrupulous employers and, through the exercise of prosecutorial discretion, facilitate the participation of vulnerable workers in labor standards investigations,” according to the three-page memo.
The document, which is titled “Worksite Enforcement: The Strategy to Protect the American Labor Market, the Conditions of the American Worksite, and the Dignity of the Individual,” instructs DHS agencies to develop plans to alleviate or mitigate the fear that victims of, and witnesses to, labor trafficking and exploitation may have regarding their cooperation with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of unscrupulous employers. “These plans should, among other things, provide for the consideration of deferred action, continued presence, parole, and other available relief for noncitizens who are witnesses to, or victims of, abusive and exploitative labor practices,” the Mayorkas order states. “In addition, these plans should provide for the assistance noncitizen victims and witnesses need to participate actively in the investigations and consider ways to ensure that noncitizen victims and witnesses generally are not placed in immigration proceedings during the pendency of an investigation or prosecution.”
Federal officials at the DHS conglomerates are also instructed to identify existing or potential policies that have an impact on the umbrella agency’s role in the enforcement of employment and labor standards. This includes ICE’s worksite enforcement strategy, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between DHS and the Department of Labor (DOL) and other policies that “may impede non-citizens workers, including victims of forced labor, from asserting their workplace rights.” The DHS secretary also directs the agencies to identify measures that ensure E-Verify, the government’s system to certify that employees are authorized to work legally in the U.S, “is not manipulated to suppress unauthorized workers from, or to punish unauthorized workers for, reporting unlawful labor practices such as substandard wages, unsafe working conditions, and other forms of worker exploitation.”
Under a bold header titled “Immediate Guidance” Mayorkas orders American federal agents to “cease mass worksite operations” and consider prosecutorial discretion—the authority to decide not to enforce the law against certain people—for workers who are victims of, or witnesses to, workplace exploitation. “The deployment of mass worksite operations, sometimes resulting in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers, was not focused on the most pernicious aspect of our country’s unauthorized employment challenge: exploitative employers,” the DHS secretary memo states. “These highly visible operations misallocated enforcement resources while chilling, and even serving as a tool of retaliation for, worker cooperation in workplace standards investigations. Moreover, such operations are inconsistent with the Department’s September 30, 2021, Guidelines for the Enforcement of Civil Immigration Law and the individualized assessment they require. Given these concerns, please ensure we no longer conduct mass worksite operations and instead refocus our workplace enforcement efforts to better accomplish the goals outlined above.”

Targeting Trump: Durham Uncovers New Clinton, FBI Connections in Russia Probe
The coup attempt against President Trump, with its maliciously bogus accusations of a Russian conspiracy, has never been properly adjudicated, but there is a glimmer of hope. In Judicial Watch’s  Investigative Bulletin, Micah Morrison, our chief investigative reporter, examines the recent indictment by special counsel John Durham.
The wheels of justice grind slow—much to the exasperation of, well, everybody. In April 2019, Attorney General William Barr appointed federal prosecutor John Durham to get to the bottom of the Russia mess: the sensational allegations, both before and after Donald Trump’s November 2016 presidential election victory, of Trump connections to dirty Russian money, dirty players, and dirty deeds.
Testifying before a Senate subcommittee, Barr said he wanted a review of “both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016.” Durham’s mandate: investigate the investigators—particularly the FBI. What did the FBI know about Trump’s accusers and when did they know it?
Last month, more than two years after his appointment, Durham delivered.
In a single count false-statements indictment of a middling Washington player named Michael Sussmann, Durham presented damning evidence of collusion between the Clinton presidential campaign and the FBI in a scheme to destroy Donald Trump.
Sussmann spent twelve years as cybersecurity prosecutor at the Justice Department before joining the prominent Washington law firm Perkins Coie. At the firm, Sussmann represented the Democratic National Committee in matters related to the Russian hacking of its email servers and “met and communicated regularly with the FBI” about the case, according to the indictment. At the same time, Sussmann “was also advising the Clinton campaign in connection with cybersecurity issues.”
Perkins Coie had many big clients, but in 2016 none bigger than the Clinton presidential campaign. The Sussmann indictment notes that the Clinton team hired “Law Firm-1” as counsel for the election and that “Campaign Lawyer-1” acted as the campaign’s general counsel.
Aside from Sussmann, no one is identified by name in the indictment. But so much other additional information is provided, connecting the dots is not difficult. News reports, for example, quickly identified “La Firm-1” as Perkins Coie and “Campaign Lawyer-1” as Perkins Coie partner Marc Elias.
Keep an eye on Elias’ he’ll play an important role later. And remember the context: in 2016, Trump was widely viewed as the likely loser of the election, so Perkins Coie represented a kind of administration-in-waiting for many ambitious souls.
The Clinton Connection
“Sussmann is not a small fish,” says Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Sussmann is a big fish in a small pond of co-conspirators who were targeting Trump—including Hillary Clinton.”
The indictment alleges that Sussmann lied to the FBI—that is, lied to “the FBI General Counsel”—at the time, James Baker—in a September 19, 2019 meeting, when he delivered documents claiming to show communications between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Kremlin-connected Alfa Bank.
“During the meeting,” the indictment notes, “Sussmann lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI.” Sussmann told the FBI he was not delivering the Alfa Bank report “for any client,” when in fact he was working for two very important clients: the Clinton presidential campaign and “a U.S. technology industry executive (‘Tech Executive-1’) at a U.S. Internet company.”
“Tech Executive-1” was soon revealed by media reports to be Rodney Joffe, a senior vice-president at the internet security firm Neustar. Not noted in the indictment but of interest to followers of the human comedy, Joffe was angling for a top job in the new Clinton administration.
Using Perkins Coie billing records, Durham nails the Sussman connection to Joffe, Elias, and the Clinton campaign. Sussman, the indictment states, “coordinated and communicated” about the Alfa Bank allegations “during telephone calls and meetings with Elias and Joffe, which he “billed to the Clinton campaign.”
Joffe got plenty of help in his scheme to show a Trump connection to Alfa Bank, including three computer scientists. The scientists are not named in the indictment, but later were identified in news reports.
Joffe “exploited his access to non-public data” and enlisted “the assistance of researchers at a U.S.-based university” who were analyzing Internet data in connection with a “pending federal government cybersecurity research contract,” the indictment notes.
In the indictment, Durham presents considerable evidence that Sussman, Joffe & Co. had little interest in the truth about Alfa Bank. The “storyline you have”—the storyline of a Trump connection to the Kremlin’s Alfa Bank — “does not make much sense,” one of the computer scientists emails Joffe. Another computer scientist emails the team, “we don’t see the money flow, and we don’t see the content of some message saying ‘send the money here.’”
But, of course, the truth was not the point. The point, the goal—the only goal—was to get the FBI to open an investigation into Trump and Alfa, and then leak the story to the media, dealing a deadly blow to the Trump campaign.
Durham quietly nails this down with another damning connection—the role of the investigative firm Fusion GPS, identified in the indictment as the “U.S. Investigative Firm.”
Aficionados of the Russia scandal will recognize Fusion GPS. It is the originator of the notorious Steele Dossier — the crazed and influential compendium of Russia-related smears against Donald Trump. The Sussmann indictment reminds us that Perkins Coie was the money behind Fusion GPS. The middleman between the investigative firm and the Clinton campaign? Marc Elias.
“Throughout the Presidential campaign,” the indictment notes, “the U.S. Investigative Firm”—that is, Fusion GPS—worked with Perkins Coie, “members of the media, and others to gather and disseminate purported evidence of Trump’s ties to Russia.”
The Perkins Coie billing records show that Sussman and Elias met with personnel from Fusion GPS about Alfa Bank. Sussmann billed the meeting to the Clinton campaign.
Sussmann and Joffe — “Tech Executive-1”— also “coordinated…with representatives and agents of the Clinton campaign” on data and written materials that Sussmann gave to the FBI and the media, the indictment notes.
Elias, according to the indictment, speaks with Sussmann about efforts to interest the media in the story. Elias also exchanges emails about Alfa Bank with senior Clinton campaign officials. They’re not named in the indictment, but news reports identify them as campaign manager Robby Mook, communications director Jennifer Palmieri, and foreign policy adviser Jake Sullivan. Sullivan currently serves as the Biden Administration’s national security adviser.
As Sussmann’s September 19 meeting with FBI General Counsel James Baker approached, the scheme kicks into high gear.
The FBI
For the conspirators, everything rides on September 19 meeting. It is not an encounter of strangers. Sussmann is a familiar figure to the FBI’s Baker. And as a longtime Washington hand, Baker surely knows of Perkins Coie’s role in the Clinton campaign.
Sussmann comes to the meeting prepared—very prepared.
The indictment notes that Sussmann offers to Baker “three ‘white papers’ along with data files allegedly containing evidence supporting the existence of this purported secret communications channel” between Trump and Alfa Bank.
According to the indictment, Baker seems unconcerned about Sussmann’s motives. Sussmann states he is not presenting the extensive, highly detailed material “for any client.” Baker concludes Sussmann is just “acting as a good citizen merely passing along information,” the indictment reports.
An FBI investigation commences. The news leaks. The media report that Trump is under federal investigation for connections to a suspicious Russian bank.
For Sussman, Elias, Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign: mission accomplished.
For the FBI, the charitable explanation for this seemingly colossal act of Keystone Cops stupidity—believing that “good citizen” Sussmann was merely wandering in with reams of technical documentation about a leading presidential candidate — is that Baker immediately realized that Sussmann was lying, and let him, in order to draw out more evidence of the scheme.
The more sinister explanation is that the FBI was hearing exactly what it wanted to hear. It used the Alfa Bank allegations to undermine a presidential candidate viewed with alarm by many of the bureau’s leadership.
Unanswered Questions
The big question now: is this the beginning of the Durham revelations, or the end? Is Durham tying up loose ends — the statute of limitations was about to run out on the Sussmann false-statements case — or will he press on?
Certainly, there are many unanswered questions.
Most importantly: what is the degree of FBI and Justice Department culpability in triggering unethical and possibly illegal probes of Trump?
What role did Jake Sullivan — then a key Clinton campaign official and now the national security adviser to President Biden — play in the Alfa Bank affair and other efforts to tarnish Donald Trump with Russia allegations?
What role did other top officials of the Clinton campaign play in the Alfa Bank affair and other efforts to tarnish Trump?
How did cybersecurity expert Rodney Joffe and his team of computer scientists access private computer data and what else, if anything, did they do with it? Were crimes committed?
What role did Fusion GPS play in accessing private computer data and what else, if anything, did they do with it?
One clue to Durham’s intentions: following the Sussmann indictment, he hit Perkins Coie with additional subpoenas for documents. Investigators “appear to be sharpening their focus on the Democratic political machinery during the 2016 campaign and efforts to tie Trump to Russia,” CNN reported.

Until next week …

Pre-Columbian America Wasn’t Exactly A Paradise Of Freedom

Pre-Columbian America Wasn’t Exactly A Paradise Of Freedom

Reprinted with permission Mises Institute Daniella Bassi

The story of European colonization of the Americas is popularly understood as the conquest of American Indians—the end of natives’ control of the land and the beginning of their subjugation. The contingencies of indigenous agency and geopolitics mean that the reality is much messier, as historians have been steadily revealing for decades, but this interpretation still circulates.

One possible reason for its longevity is the still common impression that Indians all roamed freely over the land, lacking a conception of private property and existing in a state of virtual harmony when the first agents of European states made contact in the late fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. A necessary corollary to this image of precontact native freedom is the implication that these societies had no state or barely had one to speak of and that the suffocating stays of political power were as novel to them as the diseases the strangers carried with them.

Certainly, many indigenous societies were self-governing—consensual chiefdoms in which leaders were unable to use force or to act without consulting their entire community. The chiefdoms of Hudson Valley societies such as the Mahicans (a.k.a. Mohicans) are a case in point. In these kinds of societies dissatisfied tribesmen could even desert a chief without fear of retribution. Other groups such as Inuit lacked chiefs entirely, though talented hunters’ and elders’ opinions held special weight when community members made decisions.

But it must not be forgotten that large centralized polities also existed in the Americas prior to European contact. These had the basic trappings of a state: a centralized authority’s superimposition of property claims (and accompanying authority) over the existing property rights of others through force and intimidation, and exploitative economic relations in which this self-proclaimed authority extracts wealth from others by force or intimidation rather than voluntary exchange.

For example, the Powhatan chiefdom of the Chesapeake consisted of a paramount chief (the mamanatowick), the chiefs (werowances, or “commanders”) of subject tribes under him, the werowances of satellite towns, and commoners. Unsurprisingly, the mamanatowick and the werowances (who all could be male or female) alike inherited their offices and had a symbiotic relationship with the influential clerical class, who were consulted in matters of foreign policy and crime.1

Powhatan, who was the mamanatowick in the days of Jamestown, inherited the paramount chieftaincy and six chiefdoms (Powhatan, Arrohateck, Appamattuck, Pamunkey, Mattaponi, and Chiskiack) from his parents between the 1550s and 1580s. He then expanded his rule: he conquered the Kecoughtans (he had his goons kill their chief), exterminated the Chesapeakes (had his goons massacre most of the people, who would not submit), and by 1607, when John Smith made landfall in the name of the English state, had subjugated all the peoples of the Chesapeake coastal plain except for the Chickahominies.2

Tribute payments of food and other valuables went up the hierarchy, extracted by both the mamanatowick and the werowances. The only exception was copper, which Powhatan monopolized and used to pay his werowances for their military services—that is, for them to kill others, stare down those who remained, and thereby keep the great chief in power. He also made gifts of copper to others, buying support and perhaps submission.3

The tribute payments were involuntary—there is even record of people hiding food in underground storage pits in addition to the aboveground buildings specifically designated as storehouses, possibly to keep more of their wealth. As contemporaneous observer William Strachey noted:

Their corn and (indeed) their copper, hatchetts, howses, beades, perle and most things with them of value, according to their own estymacion, they hide, one from the knowledge of another, in the grownd within the woods, and so keepe them all the yeare, or untill they have fitt use for them … and when they take them forth, they scarse make their women privie to the storehowse.4

The Narragansetts, Massachusetts, Wampanoags, and Pequots of southern New England had a similar political economy. Here power was concentrated in sachems, who also inherited authority, and local elites. There were layers of sachemships, with subordinate sachems paying tribute to the dominant sachem with the wealth created by their people. Internal tribute was also levied on communities, which enriched the sachem and allowed him to make war on other peoples to expand his dominion.5 As Plymouth colonist Edward Winslow explained:

Every sachim knoweth how far … his own country extendeth; and that is his own proper inheritance…. In this circuit whosoever hunteth, if [his men] kill any venison, bring him his fee…. Once a year the pnieses [warrior elite] use to provoke the people to bestow much corn on the sachim.6

The Nahuas of central Mexico are an even better example of people living under a pre-European state. The Nahuas consisted of a variety of Nahuatl-speaking nations among whom the Aztecs (sometimes called Mexicas) were dominant when the agents of the Spanish state marched in in 1519. This complex society in the early sixteenth century was organized into a network of kingdoms or city-states. Each kingdom (altepetl, pl. altepeme) was inhabited by a specific Nahua group, ruled by a tlatoani, and had “ranked classes of warrior-nobles, priests, commoners, and slaves.” Each altepetl was subdivided into districts and neighborhoods, called calpulli.7

The Aztec elite extracted tribute from conquered Nahuas and from their own local peasantry, and each altepetl in turn demanded tribute from altepeme under its control (if any) and from its own commoners. Tribute was collected by the officials of the local calpulli. A variety of special lands set aside for the support of the clergy and incumbent politicians, as well as for the personal benefit of nobles, were worked by slaves and by commoners under temporary forced, corvée-like labor, which was part of their tribute burden. Historian Allen Greer describes the Aztec Empire as “an engine of tribute exaction.” Much like the contemporary states of today, when the empire subsumed a new kingdom, they sometimes installed a puppet tlatoani to keep the gravy flowing smoothly.8

Each person was carefully accounted for: local officials conducted censuses for the altepeme that tracked the population of each calpulli down to the household (calli) level. Each household’s head and members (along with their age, sex, and civic status) were detailed, and their specific landholdings were surveyed, mapped, and the dimensions and surface area noted. Although each household held a specific piece of land, the family did so “under the authority and eminent domain of the local calpulli and its officials,” their property rights superseded by the claims of their state. Calpulli land could not be alienated outside the kin group and was subject to tribute for the local or Aztec government in proportion to its size—no wonder those nifty maps were in the census! At least purchased land could be sold, and it was not subject to tribute, something that cannot be said about most land purchased in the US today. Each altepetl could also handle its own internal affairs without interference from above as long as everyone forked over their “protection,” or, better, leave-me-alone money.9

The moral of the story here is that we cannot forget the polygenic character of the state in telling the story of the unending struggle between freedom and subjection across the world. Just as different ancient societies developed agriculture on their own, the institution of the state surfaced independently in different parts of the ancient world, continuing on its ruinous trajectory from there. To tell the story of the Americas as the violent “pacifying” and corralling of free indigenous peoples by white outsiders is to erase the long history of statism in many places. Sadly, statism had plagued many people for a long time when the agents of European states arrived, many with the express aim of aiding their states in continuing their reign of pillage and oppression in a new land. After all, using aggression to get ahead in life is an age-old tactic.

138 State Legislators Have Signed ‘New Declaration Of Independence’ Letter Led By Wendy Rogers

138 State Legislators Have Signed ‘New Declaration Of Independence’ Letter Led By Wendy Rogers

138 legislators from 38 states across America have signed what Arizona Wendy Rogers called the “new Declaration of Independence,” calling for a 50-state wide audit, decertification where appropriate, and potential convening of the US House of Representatives.
Rogers, who revealed the updated figure on Twitter Friday, introduced the letter at the end of the Arizona Audit hearing. In the letter, Rogers and the signatories call for states to audit their 2020 election results and decertify them where appropriate, and floats the possibility of a convening of the United States House of Representatives to reexamine the results of the last election.

BREAKING: Sen. Wendy Rogers unveils letter signed by 41 state legislators from across the country calling for forensic audits in each state, and urging their states to decertify the 2020 election if their audit results mirror those in Arizona. pic.twitter.com/Fd7mytHLX5
— National File (@NationalFile) September 25, 2021

This comes just before Former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis said that decertifying Arizona’s 2020 election results would be an “important step correcting the record” with respects to remedying fraud found in the 2020 Presidential Election.
President Donald Trump released a statement today revealing new findings from Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai regarding the 2020 election in Pima County, Arizona, in which he said that Dr. Shiva’s findings provide further proof that the 2020 election was fraudulent.
The analysis “means the election was Rigged and Stolen from the Republican Party in 2020, and in particular, its Presidential Candidate,” wrote President Trump. “This analysis, derived from publicly available election data, shows staggering anomalies and fictitious votes in Pima County’s mail-in returns, making it clear they stuffed the ballot box (in some precincts with more ballots than were ever sent!).”
The audit movement is gaining ground in Arizona as seen with the latest developments from Pima County, however Arizona AG Mark Brnovich and Arizona Senate President Karen Fann are in the spotlight due to the explosive audit results in Maricopa County and calls for the decertification of the 2020 election.

As National File reported, the results of the forensic audit of Maricopa County revealed enough potential fraud and voting irregularities to throw Joe Biden’s initial margin of “victory” into serious question, prompting calls from Arizona legislators and GOP Chair Kelli Ward for Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to launch an investigation into Maricopa County’s handling of the last election.
Amid these calls, Brnovich posted a video of him playing with nunchucks. “You want the nunchucks,” Brnovich declared. “You got the nunchucks.”

Former Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis Says Decertifying Arizona Is ‘Important Step To Correcting The Record’

Former Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis Says Decertifying Arizona Is ‘Important Step To Correcting The Record’

Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis, now the host of a TV show on Real America’s Voice, said decertifying Arizona would be an “important step to correcting the record” with respects to the 2020 Presidential Election.
Amid growing calls for Arizona to decertify the results of the 2020 Presidential Election following a forensic audit of Maricopa County, which revealed extremely high numbers of suspicious ballots and voters that far exceed Joe Biden’s supposed margin of victory, former Trump attorney and Constitutional lawyer Jenna Ellis said decertification would be an “important step to correcting the record.”

The statement came after Arizona Senator Wendy Rogers unveiled new signatories of a letter calling for a 50-state election audit, decertification of those elections where appropriate, floating the possible convening of the US House of Representatives to remedy the fraud found in the 2020 election. A total of 138 legislators from multiple states across America signaled their support for the remedies raised in the letter.
Monica Matthews responded to Senator Roger’s tweet with a message directed at Jenna Ellis, writing “who was it that said this wasn’t a remedy?” to which another user responded, “Awesome because I was seriously disappointed in @JennaEllisEsq for saying that. Disingenuous at best.”
Ellis responded to the tweets, writing “decertification is totally different than reinstatement. The former isn’t a remedy in and of itself (but an important step to correcting the record), and the latter is not constitutionally sound. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’ve been consistent in my analysis.”

Decertification is totally different than reinstatement. The former isn’t a remedy in and of itself (but an important step to correcting the record), and the latter is not constitutionally sound. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’ve been consistent in my analysis.

While some challenge Ellis on whether President Trump could be legally reinstated as President, it seems as though those on either side of the legal matter agree that decertification of states with elections found to be fraudulent is important.
Along with now hundreds of state legislators, conservative figures, and President Donald Trump, Constitutional lawyers have signaled their support for a state to decertify their election if fraud puts the original results in question. In July, Constitutional attorney John Eastman revealed a path for the Arizona State legislature to legally decertify a fraudulent election in Arizona. “We don’t have to live with a fraudulent election,” said Eastman on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast.

Chicago police union chief tells officers to ignore vaccine mandate: ‘What will the city do’ if 50% of police fired?

QUOTE: The Chicago police union chief called on officers to ignore the city’s vaccine mandate set to take effect on Friday.

In a video posted to YouTube, Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara told officers, “Do not fill out the portal information.””I’ve made my status very clear as far as the vaccine, but I do not believe the city has the authority to mandate that to anybody — let alone that information about your medical history,” Catanzara said.

The city’s vaccine mandate will place officers who do not submit proof of vaccination by the deadline on a “no pay” status. The police union is preparing a lawsuit against the city of Chicago.

2,000 Christian Health Care Workers Seek Emergency Order to Stop COVID Vaccine Mandate

QUOTE: Today, Liberty Counsel filed an emergency injunction pending appeal to the First Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of more than 2,000 health care workers against Governor Janet Mills, health officials of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and five of Maine’s largest hospital systems.

Gov. Mills has threatened to revoke the licenses of all health care employers who fail to mandate that all employees receive the COVID-19 injection, despite the unconstitutional fact that she is discriminating against religious employees who decline vaccination while favoring those who decline for secular, medical reasons.

COVID stats manipulated, state lawmakers charge

QUOTE: Two Oregon state senators, Dennis Linthicum and Kim Thatcher, have written a letter to Scott Asphaug, the U.S. attorney in Oregon, petitioning for a grand jury review.

Among other concerns they raise is the possibility that the deaths and injuries from the experimental COVID vaccines in use in the United States may be underreported by vast numbers.

Further, they charge that the CDC has adopted a standard exclusively for data collection about COVID-19 to inflate cases and deaths during the beginning of the pandemic in violation of federal law and distorting the results.

Are COVID stats being manipulated by the government?
The two senators explain they were advised by “a large team of world-renowned doctors, epidemiologist, virologists, and attorneys,” and want Asphaug to set up a grand jury to investigate the measurements of the pandemic

Appeals court allows Texas abortion law to remain in effect

QUOTE: With 2-1 vote, 5th Circuit US Court of Appeals rejects Biden administration appeal.

A federal appeals court on Thursday evening ruled that Texas’ restrictive abortion law can remain in effect even as it is litigated over its constitutionality.

The decision means Texas can enforce its new law barring most abortions as early as six weeks after conception.

The decision marks the third time since October that the appeals court has sided with Texas, and it moves the case one step closer to reaching the Supreme Court.

Mainstream Media SILENT After Florida Reports 3rd Lowest Rate Of Covid Infection

QUOTE: The media took great joy in seeing the Florida Covid spike over the summer, but now they are being eerily quiet.

It felt like Florida was the top news story every evening on the left-wing networks as they slammed Ron DeSantis for doing a “poor job”. Funny enough, whenever covid spikes hit blue states, the media kept their mouths shut.

Now, however, they’re being silent about Florida because they have just reached the 3rd lowest rate of infection in the United States.

According to The New York Times Covid map, Florida’s case rate per 100,000 people over the last week was 13, which is third behind Connecticut and Hawaii.

AZ State Rep. Rogers Demands ‘Less Letters, More Arrests’ from AG Brnovich

QUOTE: Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers is stepping up her attacks on state Attorney General Mark Brnovich, demanding that he worry less about sending out threatening letters and start taking legal action against people who were allegedly involved in nefarious activities during the 2020 election.

“Less letters, more subpoenas. Less requests, more warrants. Less talk, more arrests,” she tweeted Monday, before directing one at Brnovich specifically.
“Good night to everyone but @GeneralBrnovich who hasn’t done anything yet to fix our broken elections! Start arresting people!” she said in a separate Twitter post.

Brnovich is also under pressure by another, far more well-known Republican: Former President Donald Trump.

“The lackluster Attorney General of Arizona, Mark Brnovich, has to get on the ball and catch up with the great Republican Patriots in the Arizona State Senate,” Trump said in a statement in May. “As massive crime in the 2020 Election is becoming more and more evident and obvious, Brnovich is nowhere to be found.”

9- Our appreciation for the Governor of Florida grows daily. While we know that “Christmas does not come from a store, that Christmas, perhaps, is a little bit more”, as The Grinch finally realized, we are grateful for this effort.  It has enormous impact on the overall economy.

Will Ron DeSantis Save Christmas?

QUOTE: Last week, the Florida Ports Council put out a press release telling shippers that the state’s ports are open, staffed, and ready for business. “Florida is where your success comes in, and our seaports are the solution to ensure the cargo shipping logjam doesn’t become the grinch that stole Christmas,” said Florida Ports Council President and CEO Michael Rubin. He added, “With inflation growing, shipping and manufacturing industries can save time and money by calling on Florida ports. Why pay to moor off the coast of California, when Florida shipping lanes are open and serving as the gateway for getting goods to America’s market?”

Thanks to Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida is well-positioned to serve as part of the supply chain solution. Earlier this year, Governor DeSantis infused Florida’s 15 seaports with $250 million in stimulus relief to help offset the impacts experienced as a result of the pandemic. This stimulus is in addition to other port infrastructure and connectivity investments made in Florida to increase our capacity and ability to move cargo and passengers around the world – Florida continues to invest in the infrastructure to become the pier to the world.
Miami, Florida, has opened its arms to tech companies fleeing California. Residents of the Golden State flocked to Florida in 2020 in numbers not seen previously. Maybe cargo ships will be next. Governor Ron DeSantis made some real infrastructure investments to upgrade Florida’s ports. Let’s see if they pay off and save Christmas for everyone.

EXCLUSIVE: Georgia Secretary of State Paid Gabriel Sterling $16,666 Per Month To Manage State’s Elections

EXCLUSIVE: Georgia Secretary of State Paid Gabriel Sterling $16,666 Per Month To Manage State’s Elections

An opens record request filed by Atlanta Tea Party co-founder Debbie Dooley and provided to National File revealed the contract for Georgia Secretary of State employee Gabriel Sterling, who last year stopped being an employee to become an independent contractor for the same government office. Sterling and his company were charged with “conducting Statewide Voting System policy and strategy review,” amid other tasks, for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Sterling was repeatedly referred to as a Voting System Implementation Manager by media when President Donald Trump contested the 2020 election. However, Sterling had not been an official employee of the Secretary of State since July of that year. Instead, his company – Sterling Innovative Solutions LLC – was working for the government as an independent contractor.

This was likely a good career move, as Sterling began earning $8,333 on the 15th and last day of each month, or $16,666 per month and just $8 short of $200,000 per year before taxes. His company, Sterling Innovative Solutions LLC, received the checks.
Sterling Innovative Solutions LLC is a Georgia based company that has been active for six years. Public records reveal that Sterling is not only the company’s founder but also its only listed owner and the company’s registered agent. Its address appears to be a house, ostensibly Sterling’s.
Many will remember Sterling for his repeated public defenses of Georgia’s 2020 election and its results while representing elusive Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Sterling delivered remarks and appeared at several press conferences in lieu of Raffensperger and regularly made statements to the media.

In December of last year, Sterling claimed President Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” regarding the election was “inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence.” Ironically, despite repeatedly asserting the validity of his state’s election results, Sterling later admitted that voter fraud happened at his own home.
Sterling was still the point man for election questions earlier this year for the Senate runoff election in Georgia on January 5 of this year. “There was a programming error on security keys for some locations [sic] scanners & pollworker cards” in Columbia County, Sterling wrote on Twitter at one point during the day. He said more cards and scanners were being delivered.

Sterling’s Independent Contractor Agreement reveals that he was paid $16,666 per month to “provide expertise and consultative services” on various topics of management and implementation. More importantly, Sterling was charged with “conducting Statewide Voting System policy and strategy review” on behalf of Raffensperger.

In addition to the $16,666 per month, Sterling was allowed to ask for reimbursements for “reasonable and necessary business expenses,” which were reimbursed by Secretary of State Raffensperger at his discretion.
As a well paid independent contractor, the contract outlines, Sterling made his own hours and used his own equipment. He was also party to a strict confidentiality agreement.
READ THE CONTRACT BETWEEN GEORGIA SOS AND STERLING’S LLC:
Gabriel Sterling Redacted Watermarked
The Georgia Secretary of State’s contract with Sterling expired earlier this year, Atlanta Tea Party co-founder and president Debbie Dooley told National File. After it expired, Sterling was rehired by the Secretary of State as an employee, this time as the office’s Chief Operating Officer.
“It’s highly unethical for him to quit his job in order to take this contract, and then to become an employee of the Secretary of State again,” said Dooley. “That’s highly unethical.”

Dooley suggested Sterling “wanted to be a contractor because he would get paid a lot more than he would at as an employee.” She explained, “The state of Georgia has a pay scale,” Now, Dooley explained to National File, “When his contract ended he became an employee as Chief Operating Officer.”
Sterling recently appeared at an event in Switzerland and complained that Georgia voters are irrational. Explaining why President Trump’s voters continue to believe the state’s election was not accurate, Sterling said, “The ‘rational voter’ doesn’t exist,” and suggested that voters are “rationalizing” the loss. “That is one of the problems with democracy,” the former government employee-turned-government contractor-turned-government employee added.

Is @GabrielSterling taking leave for this trip to Switzerland or does he believe it is part of his job duties with @GaSecofState to travel abroad and lecturing about stupid Georgia voters are and the problems with Democracy?
Was this a lobbyist funded vacation?#GAPOL https://t.co/CKfD5wMosF
— Debbie Dooley (@Crimsontider) October 5, 2021

Dooley also told National File that she believed Sterling and Raffensperger struck a friendship while working in politics prior to Raffensperger’s ascension to Secretary of State. “They worked on political campaigns together,” said Dooley. “They definitely had a friendship.”

Joe Biden Asks Supreme Court to Block Texas Abortion Ban That Has Saved Thousands of Babies

Joe Biden Asks Supreme Court to Block Texas Abortion Ban That Has Saved Thousands of Babies

Joe Biden is taking the Texas abortion ban to the Supreme Court, which has already ruled once before that it will not stop the ban from saving babies from abortions while the underlying lawsuit against it continues.
As LifeNews.com reported last night, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Joe Biden’s demand to stop the Texas abortion ban that has saved thousands of babies from abortion.
Last week, U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman, who was appointed by Barack Obama, sided with the Biden administration, which sued the state and argued Texas’ law was unconstitutional because it went against Roe v. Wade.
Shortly after Judge Pitman issued his order, Texas officials quickly appealed and they sought an emergency stay in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Appellate judges then temporarily blocked the lower court’s ruling and the Justice Department asked the full appellate court to reverse its order and block the Texas abortion ban.
Last night. the 5th Circuit rejected Biden’s demand, voting 2-1 to allow the ban to stay in place as the underlying lawsuit continues. This is the third time it has allowed the law to stay in effect, responding to various pro-abortion legal challenges.
Now, Biden is heading to the nation’s highest court to stop the Texas ban, which prohibits abortions when an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be measured at 6 weeks. Justice Department spokesman Anthony Coley said the federal government will now ask the Supreme Court to reverse that decision but did not say when the legal papers would officially be filed.
“The Justice Department intends to ask the Supreme Court to vacate the Fifth Circuit’s stay of the preliminary injunction against Texas Senate Bill 8,” Coley said in a statement.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office called the appellate court decision a “testament that we are on the right side of the law and life.”
A group of abortion businesses asked the Supreme Court to block the law in September, but it ruled against them.
The new order Thursday could keep Judge Pitman’s decision on hold for many months while the case continues, unless the Supreme Court steps in.

Texas Right to Life told LifeNews is was delighted with the appeals court ruling.
Texas Right to Life Director of Media and Communication Kimberlyn Schwartz responded: “We are excited to continue saving hundreds of lives through the Texas Heartbeat Act. However, the battle is not finished. We expect the Biden administration to appeal to the Supreme Court of the U.S., and we are confident Texas will ultimately defeat these attacks on our life-saving efforts.”
Typically, state governments enforce pro-life laws and, when the laws are challenged, judges can block the states from enforcing them in a preliminary injunction. However, the Texas law leaves enforcement up to individual people. So, judges are considering whether they can stop all private citizens from enforcing the law – especially without allowing private citizens the chance to defend themselves in court first.
The Texas law went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Thus far, the courts have refused to temporarily block the law, and as many as 4,000 unborn babies already have been spared from abortion.
Judge Pitman, when he ruled, claimed the pro-life law violated the Constitution even though it has no right to abortion.
“The United States is substantially likely to succeed on the merits of its claims. It is substantially likely that S.B. 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment,” the judge wrote. “From the moment S.B. 8 went into effect, women have been unlawfully prevented from exercising control over their lives in ways that are protected by the Constitution. That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide; this Court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.”
In comments to LifeNews.com, Texas Right to Life blasted the opinion:

The ruling is wildly broad, preventing Texas state officials from enforcing the law, including the shocking order to block every Texas judge and court clerk from even receiving lawsuits filed by citizens against the abortion industry. The provision blocking lawmakers is entirely unnecessary since the language of the Texas Heartbeat Act already prohibits government officials from enforcing the policy. However, Pitman’s effort to obstruct state judges and court clerks from fulfilling their lawful duties is astonishing.
This is the legacy of Roe v. Wade: Judges catering to the abortion industry, crafting a conclusion first and then searching the depths of legal literature for a rationale later.
Pro-Life attorneys are likely to appeal the decision to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals immediately, in which we expect a fair hearing.
Until a higher court intervenes, the disappointing reality is that Pitman’s ruling will likely stop the Texas Heartbeat Act from being enforced.

Texas Right to Life maintained that abortionists could still be sued for violating the abortion ban, despite the ruling.

However, even with this ruling, abortionists can still be held liable for any abortions they commit in violation of the law.
The Texas Heartbeat Act states that an individual being sued under the law cannot claim as an affirmative defense that they were acting under the protection of a court order that had since been reversed or overturned:
“Notwithstanding any other law, the following [is] not a defense to an action brought under this section… a defendant’s reliance on any court decision that has been overruled on appeal or by a subsequent court, even if that court decision had not been overruled when the defendant engaged in conduct that violates this subchapter;” (Section 171.208(e)(3), Texas Health and Safety Code)Thus, those who aid or abet abortions, even if currently permitted by this ruling, could eventually be sued for their actions today.

“Texas Right to Life is dedicated to holding the abortion industry accountable to the fullest extent possible under the law. We are confident that the Texas Heartbeat Act will ultimately withstand this legal challenge and succeed where other states’ heartbeat bills have not,” the pro-life group concluded.
Will Thompson, an attorney representing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Office, told the judge that the federal government is using “inflammatory rhetoric” to attack the law, and the heartbeat law is not the only legislation that allows private enforcement.
“This is not some kind of vigilante scheme. It’s a scheme that uses the normal and lawful process,” Thompson said.
The Biden administration has taken multiple actions to thwart Texas’s efforts to save unborn babies from abortion. Along with the lawsuit, it also set aside $10 million – taxpayers’ money – to provide grants to the abortion industry in Texas and make additional Title X family planning funds available.
In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics.
While abortion activists say some women are traveling to other states for abortions, they admit that others are having their babies instead.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are reaching out to pregnant women across Texas with compassion and understanding, offering resources and emotional support to help them and their babies. Earlier this year, state lawmakers increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws to protect unborn babies from abortion, but Texas is the first to be allowed to enforce its law. Whether the law will remain in effect or ultimately be upheld as constitutional in court remains uncertain, but pro-life leaders are hopeful now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority.
A new Rasmussen poll shows Americans support the Texas abortion ban to save babies from abortion by a 46-43% margin.
The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey from the national polling firm finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters support the new Texas law that effectively prohibits most abortions after six weeks when the heartbeat of an unborn baby can be detected. Just 43% oppose the pro-life law while 11% are undecided.
The results are not surprising as other polling data shows Americans support heartbeat laws. An April poll by the University of Texas-Austin found that 49 percent of Texans support making abortions illegal after six weeks of pregnancy, while 41 percent oppose it. In 2019, a national Hill-HarrisX survey also found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.
Meanwhile, a Gallup poll this year found 52% of Americans want all or most abortions made illegal.
A January 2021 Marist Poll found a majority of Americans are pro-life and oppose all or virtually all abortions that take place in America today.

Should America Have A National Divorce?

Should America Have A National Divorce?

Interesting conversation today between Steve Bannon and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene about a poll she took on her Facebook page of whether people wanted to see the country divided permanently between Blue states and Red states. Fully 43 percent of those responding wanted to see the country split because of “irreconcilable differences.’ Greene said this is “a wakeup call to Democrats in particular, that they cannot do this to our country.” Bannon said dividing the country is a bad idea because the Deplorables already control most of the country.
“We have to start to govern like we mean it. The problem is we win elections and we have these country club Republicans, and we basically are the controlled opposition (even in power). My take is that if you’re going to keep this country together, start acting like you’re in charge. We’re putting together a coalition form the Rio Grande Valley to the inner cities, African American males, the hard-working blue collar Hispanics from those hard-scrabble counties in south Texas. This is a movement that has two-thirds to 75 percent of the country with us.”

Major Victory For Col Scheller Today

Major Victory For Col Scheller Today

National security expert Bernard Kerik reported to Steve Bannon about the trial and sentencing of Lt. Col. Stu Scheller for his decision to post on Facebook criticism of his superior officers for not taking responsibility for the Afghanistan disaster.
“The court end of this has concluded with this finding: Stu Scheller pleaded guilty to the six misdemeanor counts. The government wanted six months of $5,000 a month fine. The judge gave him one. one months of forfeiture of $5,000, called for an investigation into the misconduct by the command in the case. The judge said that it certainly seemed in his eyes that there was UCI — Undue Command Influence. The defense made a motion that they leaked medical records of Col. Schiller’s. He questioned the illegal confinement, and I think this was a major victory for Scheller.”

Documents Show there was No Reason to Shoot Ashli Babbitt

Documents Show there was No Reason to Shoot Ashli Babbitt

What many of us have known about the lone death (read murder) on Jan 6 has been confirmed by the great people over at Judicial Watch, who sifted through over 500 pages of documents obtained from the DC Metro Police.Eyewitness testimony contained in one of the documents tells exactly what happened at the moment Ashli Babbitt was unnecessarily shot and killed:”Sergeant [redacted] observed a white, female protester was climbing through an opened area where the glass pane had been knocked out […] He heard a gunshot and this female fell backwards through the opening […] Sergeant [redacted] observed Lieutenant Byrd step back just after hearing the gunshot. He did not see anything in the female protester’s hands prior to the gunshot.”Like Tom Fitton over at Judicial Watch, it sounds to me like the shooting was unjustified. And documents make it sound like Byrd knew just that at the time, as he was “visibly upset” following the shooting. I’d be upset, too, if I had just murdered a woman.The left calls for officers involved in completely justified shootings to hang. But the media made this man out to be a national hero. I smell b*llsh*t. And it sounds as if Fitton does, too:”These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt […] The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the [sic] mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.”Does anyone really believe the Biden DOJ will be doing anything about this anytime soon?

DEVELOPING: Bill Clinton Hospitalized in California, Treated in ICU for ‘Sepsis’

Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the hospital in California in recent days and treated in the Intensive Care Unit for what one aide describes as “sepsis.”
“Former President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized after he had a urological infection that developed into sepsis, an aide said on Thursday. The aide said Mr. Clinton’s sepsis was not considered to be acute,” reports the New York Times.

“He is on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care,” the spokesman, Angel Ureña, said.
“Sepsis, a life-threatening response to infection, is a common cause of deaths in hospitals. About 1.7 million Americans develop sepsis in a typical year and nearly 270,000 Americans die as a result of sepsis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sepsis, or the infection that causes it, starts outside of the hospital in nearly 87 percent of cases,” adds the newspaper.

Planned Parenthood CEO Calls Killing Babies “Abortion Justice”

Planned Parenthood CEO Calls Killing Babies “Abortion Justice”

On Thursday’s CNN Newsroom host Victor Blackwell welcomed Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson onto the show to talk about the state of “the war” for abortion access. In her response, Johnson would reference Martin Luther King Jr. to justify the morality of abortion.
Blackwell teed up Johnson by reading from Judge Robert Pitman’s Wednesday ruling that halted enforcement of Texas’ pro-life law, “‘That other courts may find a way to avoid this conclusion is theirs to decide. This court will not sanction one more day of this offensive deprivation of such an important right.’”
Click here to sign up for pro-life news alerts from LifeNews.com

Blackwell was concerned that Pitman’s ruling might be fool’s gold for people like Johnson, “This now goes to, and we know, the attorney general there says that the state will appeal, it goes to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is one of, if not the most conservative courts of appeal in the country. Abortion providers have won this battle. What’s your outlook on the war?”
If any pro-lifer referred to the abortion debate as a “war,” CNN would lecture them about how their dangerous rhetoric is putting lives at risk by encouraging violence. Instead, Blackwell’s framing allowed Johnson to portray herself as fighting some sort of righteous holy war, “Look, I mean, I think as I, as I quoted at the rally this weekend, you know, like Dr. King, the arc is long but it bends towards justice, and we are seeking abortion justice. We are — will be continuing to fight. The war is not over.”
After comparing abortion access to desegregation, Johnson added, “There’s no state in the union where banning abortion is popular and so we will be using all of our levers. We will be fighting in the courts. We will be fighting on the ground. And we will be ensuring that all of lawmakers understand the impact that this decision will be having on their, on their citizens.”
If anything, the arc of justice appears to be bending in the other direction as abortion and Roe v. Wade are not nearly as popular as Johnson and her media allies think they are.

SPEAKERS

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai, Mark Finchem

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 00:04

Hello, everyone, good evening. This is Dr. Shiva again, we had a pretty long day, we went from 12 to 4pm. On the Maricopa audit, we had myself, Phil Evans, we have various guests with 3000 callers on queue to call in. We had close to 4000 people concurrent which would have translated around 90,000 views on Facebook, but I noticed Facebook is only reporting 9000 views.

What an unfortunate bunch of you know what, okay. But anyway, what we’re doing right now is we’re going to be talking about another county in Arizona. That myself, Phil, and with data for Mark Fincham was the state representative there. And we did this analysis. Pima County is very different. I hope mark is able to join us. I wonder if we can get mark on the phone here.

Perhaps we can get mark on the phone. But so we’re going to wait for people to join but we’re going to be sharing with you the analysis that we did on Pima County. All right, and Pima County is obviously different in Maricopa just Hey Mark on I have you live. I don’t know if you’re clicking in but I can put you on phone if you want to sit.

Mark Finchem 01:19

I just got him into my car.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 01:21

So okay, so we have Mark Fincham, everyone we have people joining. We’re both on YouTube, as well as Facebook and Twitch, Mark. So Mark is the state rep. We did this video earlier, but it didn’t come out that well. I think it’s gonna be a lot better now. Because we’re going live directly. So Mark, we’re on live on YouTube and Facebook. I just shared with people mark.

We did a four hour marathon from 12 to four sharing Maricopa County where we invited the Maricopa County officials. President Trump actually put it out there too. So Wow. Yeah. So so we teed it up for Pima now. So we had some people joining us. So as I was saying, Pima cat, Mike, Mark, can you tell us a little bit about yourself, and then like, Where’s Pima County related to Maricopa County, you know, physically where they’re located. And then go ahead and I haven’t started the slides yet, Mark, but go ahead. If you can just share with people and then I’ll then we’ll talk about the data exam, etc. Go ahead, Mark. So we have mark. Go ahead, Mark.

Mark Finchem 02:22

So I’m a representative and legislative district 11. I am the only member of the legislature from Pima County who is a Republican. All other seats are held by Democrats. The legislative district that I am in is held the 11th which just covers a very small portion of Northern, Pima County and most of Pinellas County, Pima County is home to Tucson the second most populated city in the state of Arizona. And about the time of the election, little bit afterwards.

There were rumors that in Pima County there will be a significant number of fictitious voters inserted into the system. And then we received a an anonymous email that was directed to the US Department of Justice, obviously from a burner email.

Gentleman went by the lady went by the pseudonym of Brian Watson, and, in doing so, started off an investigation by my office over the last seven months. That included the pulling of public records and records where there had been a requisition by the county recorders office to a company known as runback, which services many of the elections in the state of Arizona and across the country, particularly with mail in ballots.

We had requested the list of people who the county had ordered mail in ballots for. One of the reasons for that is that I had received a report from one of my neighbors in Oro Valley, which is a community just the north of Tucson that he had actually received for ballots.

He had not purchased a vehicle, so it couldn’t be the fault of motor voter. He had not purchased a new property or even sold a property. So we can we can’t tie it to a real estate record or a change in real estate records. To his knowledge, there was no particular reason why he would have received four ballots.

Now granted, it’s an anecdotal story. But one of the things that we wanted to look for in the ballot requisition order that was sent to run back is did this individual show up four times now? I have not seen the report. So I don’t know if that’s a gay or na. But it reads the larger question and that is of the ballots that were not returned.

Is it possible that they might have been returned by somebody else to feed this idea that there are fictitious voters in the system and they would have a paper ballot to go along with that So I turn to Dr. Chivas group and said, Hey, I know you guys are the experts at this.

You want to take a look at it. The email that was sent to the Department of Justice by Brian Watson was also sent to every legislator in the Arizona House and Senate. That means every democrat received it. In the house, every senator received it over in the Senate.

And because it’s, I guess, my home district, or at least part of my home district, it appeared that if there was going to be any investigation in this, I would be the only one that would take it up. So now we arrive at the point where as we look at the language in the email, there was a notation made that these fictitious voters would be smoothed across multiple precincts, so that they could never be found.

And even if one or two precincts were called into question, they could simply stand behind the excuse all, that must have been an error. Well, now we’ve got the work that Dr. Shiva and his team have done, that reveal that it’s more than just an error is a significant anomaly that is worthy of, at the very least, I believe, a canvass of select precincts where it appears that we have an excessive amount of return.

And quite possibly a forensic audit of Pima County. Now, that’s obviously going to take a significant amount of probable cause to convince either the House or the Senate to take that up, especially given what we’ve seen with Maricopa County. So with that, Dr. Shiva alternate over to you. And maybe you’d like to explain for the folks that are tuning in, what you what you folks found.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 06:58

Yeah, so So Mark, thank you. So by the way, we’ve been working on this, I think it’s been almost like four months, right mark in the middle of the Arizona audit, something like that. Yeah, we did a version of this, we’ve been looking at.

So we’ve spent a lot of time making sure the analysis we give you here is accurate. We’re not making any claims we can’t substantiate. But and Mark knows about Mark has been very, very patient waiting for this. So we appreciate that mark.

So So today, we’re going to walk through all the data that we got from mark our analysis of it, but it shows a very interesting anomaly in Pima County. So I’m going to walk you through it, I’m going to bring up the presentation mark that we went over earlier. So so let me bring this up.

And I’m going to share with everyone the document that we have race up. Alright. So the title of this talk today that we see is call PMS fishtail. And you’ll understand what why we call it the fishtail. And it’s an analysis of the 2020 mail in ballots in Pima County. And it can be confused

Mark Finchem 08:07

with eschatology,

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 08:09

right? Yeah, exactly. But we are going to post some questions and some conjectures, and some future research. One of the things want to make everyone aware is we are not laying blame to anyone as we did in our four hour marathon talk was this is about taking an engineering systems approach. It’s about all of us uniting, to recognize when you see the anomaly, we’re going to share, everyone should be concerned.

And we should want to go dig further, we should want to ask questions. And by the way, 52 USC 20701, which seems like a lot of the democrat lawmakers in Washington forgot what that law was. It’s about encouraging audits, which was passed by Democrats 50 years ago by a democrat majority, which basically says we want to conduct audits, you shouldn’t be beating people up and calling them unAmerican.

If they want to do an audit, it is encouraged. That’s 52 USC 20701. I was really displeased with this guy ROH Khanna for grilling, you know, I think was Ken Bennett right, Mark, and saying, Oh, you know, you’re an American and this kind of stuff, because you want a audit. But

Mark Finchem 09:18

Dr. Stephen, I would add to that the platform of the democrat party for 2020 specifically says that in order to support voter confidence, and I’m gonna paraphrase it, but the point of it was that robust, meaningful audit should be done. Right. Even they before the election laid that case out.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 09:42

Yeah, the important thing is Mark, this is the law. The law 50 years ago was passed to support audits encourage all of you listening out there. You should be happy that you find issues and anomalies and ask questions, that is called an engaged and enlightened electorate.

Okay. So Let’s just jump into that. So I’m going right into the first slide mark, I know marks on the road. First of all, anyone who wants to go to va shiva.com. Everything we do here takes a systems approach and to understand what that is, but go to va shiva.com, go to truth, freedom health.com. I’ll play a video for you guys later on that. But let’s go into this.

The title is mathematical analysis a mail in ballot requests. And that was a data that Mark was able to get, he was able to get this very, very good data, which is really about the mail in ballot requests, which means the who, by precinct by pressing who those people requested mail in ballots, and then we have the return rates, okay by those precincts.

So just to be clear on this, what we mean by by this is you request a mail in ballot. And let’s say in your neighborhood, including your 10 people requested a mail in ballot, but then five of the people returned it, right. So that would be a 50% return rate.

So we have the by precinct, we got data that mark provided of people who requested mail in ballots in those precincts, and what were the return rates, okay. So that’s we’re gonna, that’s the analysis that was done. And the return rates give you an idea of people’s engagement, right.

So if one precinct returned a lot of their, let’s say that 100% return rate of their male and balance, that means they’re obviously potentially more engaged voters than someone who had only 20% return rate. Okay. So that gives us an idea of engagement of voters.

So we’re going to do an executive summary, we’re going to do a quick background, we’re gonna look at what Pima County reported as their results, then we’re going to do a comparative analysis, then we’re going to do an analysis that we did a performance of each candidate, Trump and Biden in that county versus a male in return rates.

And you’ll see that’s a very nice analysis. And that’s where you’ll see this fishtail. And then we’re going to go over some of the key findings, and then questions and hypotheses that we have of those findings. And then we’re going to conclude in future research.

So the executive summaries is, first of all, a mathematical analysis of Pima County’s mail in ballot request and return rates were done. To give you an idea, 87% over 87% 87.4% of all ballots cast in Pima or were by mail and if you notice, we when we looked at Maricopa was close to 92% was by mail and CIF.

I think we need to understand the citizens that more and more votes are occurring by mail. Now Pima has votes, all the votes cast in Pima represent 15% of the votes cast in the state of Arizona. So that’s giving you a high level view.

Now Pima has mail and return rates you’re going to find out are quite fascinating the return rates which means they sent out 100 ballots, mail in ballots, and let’s say the return rates were 50 people returning over a 50% return rate we’re going to see shortly that P Mo’s return rates are higher not only than the US average male in return rates, but also all other counties put together in Arizona.

And the key is here, the data in summary is 15% higher than all US return rates and 19% higher than all other counties in Arizona. So the third point is we detected this anomaly we’re going to share with you in Trump and Biden performance relative to male and return rates.

What we noticed was the Trump and Biden’s performance, whatever they were doing, the numbers you’re gonna see were pretty much steady. But when you got to greater than 87%, male and Bhalla return rates, suddenly you see this flip, Biden rates increase, and Trump rates go down.

Typically, you will see some of the slope because of republican democrat, but the the phenomenon here is quite drastic and quite impressive, actually. So the next thing is we have some questions that AI policies. And we think, and we’ve spoken to mark about this marks a big proponent of this, we think there’s an opportunity to really validate the anomalies we’re finding with canvassing in the high return rate precincts and all of this has become clear.

So quick background, as many of you know who are joining us new. as those of you just joined, we just had another 300 people join concurrently. So Mark Fincham is a state rep in Pima County, the only republican state rep. This is Dr. Shiva, gray. My background is in the field of pattern recognition, computational analysis for over 40 years. And you can see my background here.

But fundamentally, I’m a system scientists have a bunch of degrees from MIT. But I’ve spent most of my life looking at all different kinds of patterns, in handwriting analysis, all different fields I’ll walk you through.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 14:45

So for example, in this field of pattern so you have the reality of some event that took place, for example, the election Pima County, and then you get data from that, like the Malin ballot return numbers are the return rates. And we’re trying to use that signal to reflect on what actually took place, you have a signal a model, and the reality.

So for example, if some of you know I’ve done this in the field of sleep data analysis, right, we get sleep signals, and you’re trying to figure out what’s going on inside the baby, or looking at speech signals and looking at what’s the way deaf blind people communicate, or looking at a radar signals from bridge decks deteriorating, and you’re trying to predict what’s going on inside that bridge.

Okay, without having to blow up the bridge, by the way, 50,000 bridges in the United States are falling apart. So it’s very important to do this kind of analysis, aircraft wings, we don’t want to open up a billion dollar aircraft wing, you can send an ultrasonic signature through, wave through and you get a signal.

And then based on that signal, again, you’re trying to reflect on what the reality of that wing are, for many years, I did bank checks analysis, looking at the handwriting signature on bank checks,

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 15:55

and doing neural net analysis and trying to figure out what’s actually written there, or with email analysis, right, we used to be able to look at signals from an email and try to predict initially did it for the White House on when Bill Clinton was there, trying to figure out if this is the death threat or not, and I won one of the contests To do this, we grew this to our company, XML.

And more recently, with the technology we have called cytosol, looking at signals, and trying to understand how combinations of foods or supplements can affect particular biomolecular functions. So you have again, the reality the model, you can look at the heart, right, and you can figure out from the heart, here’s a normal signal, and here’s a signal that’s abnormal.

Alright, again, this is background. So when we look at the reality model, here, we’re looking at the mail in ballot system in Pima County, and we have the Malin ballot returned data that mark Clinton got us and we’re looking at is to see if we can identify anomalous behavior. Now before you can talk about anomalous behavior, you need to know what normal behavior is.

So Phil was was not able to join us, Phil was here for four hours with us. But Phil Evans and I did research back in November of 2020, looking at races republican races in, for example, in Michigan, and what we find is, in fact, other other previous races, you will find out that when something is normal, again, pattern analysis is not just for mathematicians, typically mathematicians have a huge blind spot and pattern analysis, they just crunched numbers, they don’t understand the need for domain knowledge or, you know, subject matter expertise.

But what you’ll see here is this is a this classic pout parabolic arc as you go from on the x axis 0% republican precincts, 200% republican precincts, and then as you look on the y axis performance, where performance is a function of the percent vote, that this case, we’re looking at Jeff Sessions elections from 2008, minus the republican straight party vote, okay, so you’ll typically get this curve when you do this kind of metric.

Okay. That’s 2008 Jefferson County, you’ll see the same curve and McCain in the in the presidential election of 2008. Again, you see this parabolic arc, same here, in the Trump election in Saginaw County, Michigan, this was where our view is, there was no anomaly.

This is a normal behavior, you see this parabolic arc and the reason you see this is because again, you’re going from low republican districts, which means high Democrats to middle of the curve would be Democrats, independent Republicans, MCs, and all the way the right would be Republican. So based on the math of this, you will get this kind of curve.

And this curve really has three parts to it, a sloping line up a horizontal line here if you want to break it up into three functions. So this is a normal state composed of f of x, g of x and h of x, three functions. So you would always expect this parabolic arc.

Now if you just got a line, you’d say, hey, something’s wrong, you know, line sloping up, if you just got a flat line, you’d say something’s wrong, you get a sloping line down Okay. All right. So again, signal detection says parabolic arc, normal state, non parabolic arc, these will be abnormal states. Okay. So Michigan County, for example, you can see we see this straight line.

This is what alerted us to something was off here. Same here, straight line over here. On election day in early voting. McComb County, same thing, pretty hard, straight line, and in count County, this sloping line so this is why we alerted people. And this started people wanting to explore it Michigan, because you see this anomaly. It’s not normal.

So again, normal state parabolic arc and the line. So I used to sort of jokingly say, and Ken county and McComb and Oakland County, Michigan mark that a parabola went into the voting booth and out came out came a line. Okay. So that’s what we’re seeing here.

So now, in Pima Malin reported results. Mark I’m showing them the Pima results. Okay, the reported results in Pima. And what you see here, the total This is by by the way it was recorded in the final vote counts in Pima the total mail in ballots requested according to the Pima County was 525,645. In 2020. The duplicate analysis, they didn’t report any duplicates.

Again, it’s unfortunate that they don’t report duplicate. This is in my view, a process error. And they didn’t really report how many total unique mail in ballots were requested, because we don’t know the duplicates. We do know that. So you know, 525,645 were requested.

And you notice according to the county’s report, 459,000 406 were actually received, okay. And the total unique ones that they reported were 454,633, because I guess these are the ones that they received and counted, so they must remove some bad signature ones, etc.

Like we talked about America. So 454,633 were the total unique mail invalid, received and counted. All right. Now in Pima Malan ballot,

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 21:15

the return rate data, so this is what we have. Okay. This one is what came from Mark’s data for Mark’s data we have we have 516,099 was a total mail in ballots requested. We actually found duplicates 13,543. So the total mail in ballots requested we have our 502,556. So comparative analysis, you can see here, we have a higher number we have mark, are you still there? Maybe we lost mark, but I am

Mark Finchem 21:50

Yeah, I just had my soul on mute. So yeah,

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 21:52

there’s no race. But this is one of the questions mark will obviously want to ask the county this discrepancy. But anyway, we’re working off this 502,556 number. Okay. So now before we go into all the details of this, we want to put this in perspective. We want to look at national and all county in Arizona to really get an understanding of what is the mail in ballot return rates, okay, like, you know, what, what do we consider, quote unquote, normal, okay.

And the only way to understand that is to look at some averages. So what you see here is a male and ballot return rates in 2008, for example, in the presidential election was at 1.1%. That’s nationally, in 2012. It was again at 1.8%. Nationally, in 2016. It was 80%.

Went down a little bit. And when you look at 2020, it was 71% obviously had more people requesting mail in ballots 92 million, but you can see the return rates went down to 71%. We’re talking about the percentage, not the overall absolute number. Okay, so that’s nationally.

Now, when we compare Pima County’s mail in ballot return rates over the last let’s say, since almost the last 2025 years, we get some interesting understanding here. So for example, 2008 Pima County’s return rates were 10% higher than the national 0% in 2012. They’re about the same 3% higher than the national 2016. But in 2020, Pima County’s Malin ballot return rates were 16% higher than the national return rates, so quite significantly different.

So again, you notice that difference, right? So national was 71.1 Pima was 86.7. To be specific 15.6% difference. Now we look at all of the other Arizona counties combined. We find out that the mail in ballot return rates were 67.6% and P Mo’s was 86.7%. And Mark, I think you were pretty surprised yourself right? When we calculated these numbers, because it was nine was

Mark Finchem 24:00

surprised is not the word. I was stunned. Actually.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 24:04

Yeah. So I’m highlighting those and we can see here so Pima County’s mail in ballot return rates were 20%, close to 20%. Higher than all of the other Arizona counties combined, which is a so that’s a pretty good average there. Which, and they were at 67% and 15%, higher than national averages. Okay. So that’s an interesting phenomenon, anomaly.

Okay. Now, what we’re going to do, and I want to understand this week, then pattern analysis, we typically typically build what we call a feature a metric. We had a very foolish mathematician, and I did this in Michigan, a guy who calls himself the math guy in England who doesn’t understand pattern analysis.

They says, Oh, you can’t subtract two percentages. Well, frankly, in pattern analysis, you create metrics. Okay, you create features. So this unfortunate lad didn’t understand the difference between a feature and math. Okay. It’s not simply looking at percentages, okay?

In face analysis, for example, people used to spend all this time doing high end pixel analysis, well, you find out you could analyze people’s faces by looking at certain distance measurements or certain percentages of, you know, the distance between the nose in the eyes anyway, in pattern analysis, we call these features, okay? And mathematicians need to sort of learn their chops on this.

So they need to, frankly, get educated before they sort of critique something they don’t know what they’re talking about, but fundamentally, in Pima, what we’re looking at is the x axis, we’re looking at the percent Malin return, right?

Okay, so we’re going to plot on the x axis by the precincts what the male and return rates were okay. But on the y axis, we’re going to calculate a candidates performance. And the candidates performance is this feature, which is going to be what percentage

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 25:57

did that candidate get relative to the party’s Malin ballot return rate, okay. So for example of Joe Biden got, you know, 70% instead of precincts, but you know, the mail in ballot return rate in those precincts among the democrats is 74% 70 minus 74, he’d get a minus four. So that’s basically saying he was underperforming, relative to his party participation.

So it’s a very interesting measure to see how you’re performing relative to your party’s your party’s participation. So let’s get to this is where it gets interesting now. So Mark, I’m starting to show the signal now mark on the graph. So thank you very much. What you see here is on the x axis, we have precincts, some of them which had 70%, male and ballot rates all the way interesting, awesome.

So I’m not 100% we’ll talk about this. But first, we see this line here. So this line right here, the red dot denotes the performance rate. And this looks like it’s about 73%. So these are precincts that had 73% male and return rates, it’s called and then we here we see Trump, what his performance 3% higher relative to the republican share mail in ballots.

So he’s doing higher than Biden and Biden’s actually minus 3%. Okay. So and that’s but Biden is doing 3% lower. So as we go across, now we go to the next set of precincts which are 75% return rates, and again, you can see Trump is 3%.

Higher, Biden’s actually goes down a little bit, he’s a little bit less than 3%, close to negative 4%. And again, you can see there’s about the same when we get to the precincts that are 77%. Again, we can see when we get to precincts that are 80% male and return rates, they’re converging a little bit, and then at around 83%, you know, they diverged a little bit, but you know, you can see they’re between that, you know, three in that 3% vicinity, okay.

And then when we get to 85 precincts with 85%, return rates, they converge a little bit. And this is what the interesting point is, remember, Pima County’s mail and ballot return rates is at 6.7%. Okay, that’s what their mail in ballot return rates is across Pima.

So when we hit that, what I call that sort of interesting wall, we start seeing Trump’s performance come down, and Biden’s performance go up. And in fact, at 90% of these precincts which other 90% return, right, you see them near the same, which means they’re both there’s no difference. And this is what gets interesting. At around 92%.

We’re going at 93%, you start seeing Biden starts overtaking Trump in these precincts which have greater than 90% male in return rates and they start growing in fact, and they start growing and growing. As you go up to 95%.

You start seeing between around 93%, you start seeing this very interesting slope, it almost looks like for every 1% increase in mail in ballot return rates, Trump is losing 1% and Biden is gaining 1%. That’s the slope of that line. And and this is what I call this fishtail.

In fact, as you go to one, we’re getting close to 99% it becomes so so this is why I call this supima fishtail. Okay. And in fact, there were precincts we’ll find we’ll talk about that are close to 100%. In fact, 100% return rates. All right.

And so this is why I call it this fish shell the sure let’s look at fishtail. Okay. So this is a Pima fishtail. Now, what we then did was we wanted to understand the phenomenon and we looked at the mail in ballot return rates by precinct Okay, so that’s what these bar graphs are. So what you see is these are the number of precincts with these particular mail and return rates.

So for example, there are five precinct with 69% male and return rates. Over here there are close to 20 precincts with 95% return rate, there are in fact, 20 precincts right here, this red bar with 98% return, right? And they’re interesting.

There’s a precinct which has got 100% return rate. Okay, so you see this graph. And, you know, if you were to do sort of the mode and the median analysis, you find out that the average is this red line here, where Pima County’s but the average in this histogram has actually shifted over here, which is quite interesting.

So if I overlay the fishtail, with the, the histogram, you see right here at 86 point more than 86.6%. And as we proceed to the right, when you get to the precincts that are about 95%, going all the way to 98%.

You see that beautiful 1% slope going up for Biden 1%, meaning for every 1% increase in mail in ballot return rates, Trump is gaining, Biden’s gaining 1% and Trump is losing 1%. But the phenomenon has started really occurring at the high Malin return rate precincts.

When we’ve done these kinds of graphs with high republican you would expect to see this kind of little bit of depth. But there should there’s frankly, should be no correlation between between this and the correlation between return rates and this.

Okay. So, in summary, what we have is to give you the sort of the sizing of this, you know, Trump loss in Arizona by 10,457 votes. Okay. That’s the difference. Pima County, Trump lost by 97,223 votes, okay. So if you just take even, you know, 1% of Pima County, which would be 5001, or one or 27 voters, and those were flipped, that would be the margin of error, right?

So right, because if 5000 plus voters went to Biden, that means you’re removing from Trump, you would create the 10,000 margin, but that again, would be you know, about, you know,

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 32:06

you know, about 1% there, right. Actually, it’s I’m sorry, this is actually about 5%. me correct myself. That’s about I’m sorry, it’s 1% of all of Pima That is right. It’s 1% of all of people’s votes. Okay. But it’d be about 5% of the votes Trump lost by okay. Yeah, cuz it’s 1% of 512,739.

Okay, says correct. All right. So again, we have this fishtail phenomenon. And here are the key findings. The key findings are at precincts below average return, right? That 86.7% Trump’s performance was steady at 3%.

Plus, and Biden’s performance is steady at 3% minus as precincts with return rates went above average. What did you see Trump’s performance begins to decrease, and Biden’s performance begins to increase. And then at precincts with return rates between 92 to 97%.

What do we see Trump, Trump decreases 1% with each 1% increase in return rate, and Biden increases 1% with each 1% increase in return, right? Okay.

So that’s what we see, or that’s quite fascinating. Okay, so those are the summary of the observations, everything is flat, but the fishtail occurs, right during these return rate precincts where they’re between this 92 to 97, actually, after 86%, but you get this 1% slope on these 92 to 97%.

Again, that’s what we’re talking about right here. So everything is steady here, and then the fishtail occurs right around here. All right. Now to give you an analysis, if you look at those precincts, above that 92% return rate to the 100%.

That’s 264,000 votes. That would account just to give you an idea if 2% of these votes for flipped, right, which is that margin of 505,000. That’s that would create the 10,000 vote margin. So if you wanted to flip an election to it could just be done with 2% of the votes in these high turnout precincts.

All right. So here’s our questions and hypotheses. First question to everyone is why to Trump and Biden’s performance stay steady across precincts with return rates from 69 85%. That’s that plus 3% minus 3%.

Okay, Why the sudden decrease in votes for Trump increasing with higher mail in ballot return rates? And why is there a linear decrease and increase by 1% and Trump and Biden’s votes respectively, as precincts return rates?

Each increased by 1%, starting with precincts with the 92% return rates, and why are their true precincts with 100% plus mail in return rates. And why are there 40 precincts with 97 plus Malin return rates that’s quite a number of precincts.

Okay. So here’s our hypothesis, and our hypothesis. Our More answered as questions or is did in precincts that have higher melon ballot return rates above 86.7%. Trump voters start flipping to Biden. Is that what started happening?

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 35:13

Did republicans in those higher mail in ballot rate precincts vote for Biden that could have happened, right? We don’t understand why. But maybe in hi ballot, hi melon return rate precincts for some reason republicans started flipping or did independence in those higher mail in ballot rate precincts vote for Biden.

The other question if you want to take a a more of a what someone may call a call a real hypothesis or something where perhaps who will say we’re being conspiratorial would be we’re mailing ballots for Biden injected into precincts with the higher melon ballot rate? precincts okay. 92%.

So here are various, you know, extremes of hypotheses again, in science, you put forward a hypothesis, then you go do the experiment? Well, what would be the experiment here would be experiment would be, you would have to go do a different kind of methodology because we’re just hypothesizing you’re This is how science works, right?

You see some phenomenon, and then you hypothesize because you want to do more research. So, again, the conclusion and future research overseeing an inverse relationship on the performance of Trump and Biden. And we think further research and information are necessary to elicit greater understanding, right?

What would that kind of research be? Well, we need new research methods, one starting point, maybe the survey, Canvas individuals who voted in those precincts with the higher Malin ballot rates, which are the 92% plus to validate melon ballot votes.

So that’s about 264,000. People obviously are not going to survey all of them. If you use standard statistical analysis, sampling analysis, if you could survey 2500 people, that would give you a margin of error of plus or minus 2%, at a 95% confidence rate, okay.

So that’s one way you could do it. And if you found, you know, 75, or more of those people are found to be invalid, that would be a significant finding, okay. Now, or if people didn’t want to do 2500, you could we could just target those precincts, those 40 precincts that were at 98% plus.

And on those precincts, we would go to an analysis. All right. So anyway, I’m going to people want to go look at the background here. But what we just shared with you is a mathematical analysis, the Malin ballot vote requests, and mail and ballot return rates in Pima County.

And one of our recommendations we may want to do door to door canvassing in those 98% plus precincts. There you go. That’s why we call this P Miss fishtail. I hope everyone got it. And Mark, do you have any other thoughts? I can look at some of the questions that I’m seeing online, we have close to 1000 people mark.

Mark Finchem 38:01

Yeah, the only thing I would offer up, um, you’ve just done a great job of explaining something that so many people are scratching their heads about. And there are two points that I would like to make. There are many people who believe that the election, establishing the Regional Transit Authority some number of years ago, was not exactly what it appeared to be.

Now, obviously, we can’t go back and re litigate that. But now the question is, how reliable is an anonymous report. And for anyone who would like to see the text of that email, I would be happy to send it to them. All they need to do is visit boat fincham.com.

That’s botfnchm.com and click on contact. Give me your name, your email address and a comment that you’d like to see the report from Pima County, and I’ll be happy to send you all of that verbiage. So you can see it for yourself.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 39:01

Yeah, Mark. So people go to vote Fincham calm. So Mark, this entire analysis motivated by a report that came from an insider who said that he had seen some anomalies. And those of you are joining us new. We’ve, I think we’ve doubled the number of viewers since we’ve

Mark Finchem 39:19

seen anomalies. Yeah. But he was reporting what the Democrat Party officials were saying in a closed meeting. And the flavor of the email was that they were bragging about it, bragging about what they had done to the system.

Got it. And that tells me that you have an individual whose moral compass tells him that it’s more important to protect the nation than it is to protect the party. And for that, whoever Brian wants in his, I applaud him for having the courage to send that out.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 40:01

Yeah, Mark, it’s interesting. Earlier today we had Tim Canova, you may know that race in Florida where Tim Cook was a democrat running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and how they stole that election. We also talked about my own race matches where the Republicans, the Massachusetts GOP swamp, colluded with the democrats against our race.

So I think the point here is this is not about Republicans or Democrats, this is about the fact that we have squishy, election voting systems where there’s enough things there that can be played with. And what again, what we did here this evening, was thanks to mark, we were able to get access to this data. And we were able to do a analysis a scientific mathematical analysis to point out this fishtail.

And now following the scientific method, remember, the scientific method is a process that you go through, you find something, you come up with a new hypothesis, you do more experiments, you come up with a new hypothesis.

This is called science. And we want to bring this kind of engineering systems approach to this world. So we can essentially ask questions, we can put people make people accountable, and we can also get citizens also more accountable themselves, because this is really up to you.

The reason we’re here is because if we sleep on guard, people can do whatever the hell they want. Thanks, Mark. Yeah, it’s,

Mark Finchem 41:19

it’s kind of like you don’t get a dog and let him run through the neighborhood, unsupervised. And I’ve, you reminded me of a conversation that I’ve had with a couple of Bernie supporters. And they just they keep scratching their heads, and they believe that Bernie was robbed.

And my response to that is, well, I suppose then you would be making the exact same allegation that maybe the election wasn’t really an election, is it possible that it could have more been more of a selection that was supervised by somebody? So that’s a question to ask. I’m not making an accusation. Of course, there are some Democrats who are perfectly happy with the outcome.

That would ask the question as well. So is it possible that Bernie Sanders would have been the legitimate Democrat in the race? And I think that that’s an open question. And when we see evidence, like what you and your team have been able to pull together, it’s one of those questions that perhaps it won’t be answered in the immediate future.

But I think the more we dig in, the more we supervise elections, because remember, elections belong to the people, they don’t belong to the bureaucrat, the bureaucracy, they don’t belong to a governor or a legislature. They truly do belong. Yep.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 42:45

Mark, thank you very much. So I’m going to just wrap up with some messaging and some of this stuff that we want to talk about. And thank you, Mark. So I think that was Mark Fincham a state rep in Pima County. So what I want to finish up with is we have about close to 800 people here. concurrently. By the way, Facebook is doing some wonderful throttling, we have close to 4000 people and typically have 4000 people concurrently about 90,000 views.

They’re showing we only have nine, nine views. Okay, our 9000 views, right, quite interesting. But what I want to finish up with is I want to play you two videos, one video, is to let everyone know the way we are going to win is not through politicians, not through celebrities, not through lawsuits, frankly, not through elections, it’s really going to happen with every one of you, learning that we all need to take a systems approach to building a movement.

And it goes beyond left or right so I’m gonna play you two videos. So this first video will give you sort of the positioning on how we look at the world at our movement, truth, freedom and health. So let me play this for you, we have allowed our country to be taken over from within. And the end goal is you will have a homogenized world where we will become slaves.

Because there is a condition among the elites that really thinks they’re better than you deep down inside them that you don’t deserve the freedoms you have. They don’t make this reality is what people need to wake up to. And we need to all unite working people. There’s only one movement that can do that. And that is the movement that we started creating here messages the movement for truth freedom.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 44:27

Now look, I’ve been a student of politics since I was a four year old kid setting revolutionary movements left wing right wing, there’s a physics there’s a nuclear science to destroying the establishment. To build a bridge, you need to understand Newton’s equation, you need to understand the laws of gravity, you need to understand Poissons ratio, there is a way to build a revolution. And that’s why I put this together. My goal is to train a army of truth, freedom and health leaders.

We don’t need followers like social media, we need leaders, but they they need training because the educational system does not teach them history. Nothing. So three hours, that’s what I’ve started doing. That’s the solution. We got to train people.

First with understanding what a system is. The second is understanding the interconnection between truth, freedom and health. Freedom is the ability to move freely, communicate freely, right? talk freely. without freedom. You cannot convert ideas, hypothesis into truth, which is science. And without freedom, you can’t really get to truth and without truth, you make up fake problems and fake solutions, which means you destroy our health.

And without health, which is the infrastructure of us in our body, you can fight for freedom. Third concept is it has to be bottoms up working people, people who work united. And what the right wing has done is whenever you say working people unite that must be communist.

Meanwhile, they’ve let the democrats run unions, which suppress workers, completely corrupt. But when you look at the arc of American history, it’s been working people came up, we need to go local. Every solution I’m coming up with as a part of this movement, we’re giving the science which is a truth, and then we tell people what they can do on the ground.

Like with election fraud. You don’t need to wait for some lawyer. Our goal is to train people to go local to go local to go local fight locally. Forget lawyers, forget politicians, forget celebrities, you’ve got to learn politics, and there is a science to it, they lock us down, we should be ready to shut them down. And the fourth part of this principle is a not so obvious establishment.

So when you look at a system, there’s always something that disturbs you from getting to your goal with the biggest disturbance is a not so obvious establishment, which is those people who claim there for you on the left and the right, the Al Sharpton to tell black people I’m for you. The Tucker Carlson’s. Do you think any true anti establishment person will ever be on Fox or CNN?

I don’t think so. They both mislead working people back into the establishment without this solid understanding of political physics and theory, you’re screwed. You’re going to follow on the left wing Bernie Sanders Oh, he said something or Robert Kennedy, scumbags?

Are you going to follow you know, some right wing talk show host, they’re not going to lead us to liberation, it’s us. And that political physics, it’s a nuclear science of change. Bottoms up. We have to organize to understand that there is people who talk a good game, and then look at what they actually do left and right.

I’m sorry, Sean Hannity may say some good things, but I don’t see the urgency in his voice to get something done. And it can only come when you weaponize yourself with the right knowledge, you need to be able to identify a rat. You know, Christ didn’t go after the Romans, right? It was the Pharisees and the Sadducees, who screwed him up his own quote, unquote, people.

And that’s where we’re at. So these four concepts are built into a curriculum, people can go to ba shiva.com. And it’s an educational program, we need to train people in political theory, you need to have physics, and I’ve created that curriculum.

People need to get educated, we need to get educated fast. And within half an hour, an hour, I can teach people two years of MIT control systems, I teach people those concepts that I apply it, anyone can understand it.

And then you say, Oh, I gotta build a bottoms up movement. They have to get politically astute. And then they have to go locally and act not sit there on social media, they have to act locally, defy locally, we do civil obedience locally, but with knowledge on how to build a movement at the senate campaigns expanded to the movement for truth, freedom and health.

And they can find it on V as in Victor, a Shiva, v a shiva.com. So people can sign into it can get access to a bunch of videos, if they want to take a course and become a truth freedom health leader, I offer a full scholarship there. But we want people to make a commitment that they’ll study that they’ll get certified that they’ll go do activities on the ground. So go to V A Shiva victory America, Shiva, va shiva.com.

Dr.SHIVA Ayyadurai 49:04

So I wanted to play that for you. Because hopefully that will inspire you to understand that when you look at the hit arc of world history, not only US history, you’ll see it’s when working people rise up. And where we’re at right now is over the last 50 years, which we talk about in our training every Monday evenings, I run a training.

We’ve taken sort of 50 years worth of knowledge and and we want to educate people on a systems approach. We’ve made it extremely accessible to everyone. You can we have 60,000 people, 70,000 people all over the world who’ve signed up. We’re putting together a leadership program, but it’s all everyday working people.

We saw with Southwest Airlines workers did right we saw the workers what’s going on. In Australia, they defied their own union which wanted them to get jobs. But the reality is we need to build a bottoms up movement, but there’s a physics to building that movement.

We need infrastructure. Fortunately, with all of your guys support, and the fact that I’ve donated infrastructure to this, we have the course we we have technology and then we also have activism. So I want all of you to take time to become part of this it’s really for you. And every Monday evenings I teach a course.

This Monday we didn’t because it was Columbus Day but and then every Thursday evenings at 7pm we actually have our truth freedom health warriors come together we hold an open house. But I’m going to play you a final video and we’ll wrap up but I wish everyone well but this video will share with you the wonderful infrastructure that we put together to really build this movement.

So we’re not sitting here and we have no intention of sitting here we want to actually take action to to when truth freedom helps let me play this for you.
