CDC Coordinated with Facebook On COVID Messaging and ‘MisinformationChicago Mayor Says She Would “Absolutely” Discriminate Against White Reporters Again Senior Judicial Watch Attorney Russell Nobile Testifies To Congress on Voting Rights Act Big Win at Supreme Court Signals Election Battles Ahead

CDC Coordinated with Facebook On COVID Messaging and ‘Misinformation’
Is it any wonder that Americans don’t trust the CDC or Facebook to deliver accurate information? And is it any surprise that your Judicial Watch caught these two organizations colluding to control the flow of news and opinion about Covid-19?
We learned a lot about the behind the scenes, inappropriate friendship of this government agency and this private company after we sued.
We received 2,469 pages of documents from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which reveal that Facebook coordinated closely with the CDC to control the Covid narrative and “misinformation.” 
In addition, social media companies gave more than $3.5 million in free advertising to the CDC.
We received these documents in response to our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health of Human Services (No. 1:21-cv-00625)) lawsuit for:
Any and all records of communication between CDC officials and/or employees and employees, agents, and/or representatives of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube concerning, regarding, or relating to COVID-19 related content on company platforms. Such records include, but are not limited to, any advice or instructions issued on disinformation re COVID-19.
The documents show little daylight between the CDC and Big Tech on Covid-19 messaging and misinformation:

In an email exchange beginning on January 26, 2020 with the subject, “Data for Good | CDC intros,” a Facebook representative sends the “FB coronavirus narrative” to the CDC.

It states the following:
Facebook is taking a three pronged approached to the global response for the coronavirus:
Limit misinformation and other harmful content on our platforms.  Our third-party fact-checkers have been rating information on this topic as false, including the AP, Politifact, AFP Hong Kong, Rapple IQ in the Philippines. As a result, we show people who come across that false content accurate information from our fact-checking partners and strong warning labels. We also send notifications to people who already shared this content alerting them that it’s been fact checked.
Provide accurate and helpful information on our platforms to our partners. Partners are already using our platforms to share accurate information about the situation, including on Pages. We have also provided ad credits to the World Health Organization and the Philippines’ Department of Health to enable them to run coronavirus education campaigns on Facebook in-region, which we will continue to do. We’re continuing to explore additional steps we can take, including dedicated information modules on relevant search queries and improved search ranking.
Empower partners with data tools. We’re sharing aggregated mobility data and high resolution density maps with various partners (e.g., National Tsinghua University (Taiwan); Harvard School of Public Health) to help inform forecasting models for the spread of the virus as part of our broader Data for Good program. We’re exploring doing this with a broader set of partners (e.g., WHO, US CDC) and also helping partners understand how people are talking about the issue online through tools like Crowdtangle to inform their efforts.
This email exchange continues on showing more coordination on messaging between the CDC and Facebook.

The CDC was given over $3.5 million of free advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

In a March 8, 2020 email, a Facebook representative sends four ad credits totaling $2 million to the CDC for the purpose of supporting “messaging related to coronavirus.”

On March 14, 2020, then-CDC Chief Operating Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Sherri Berger emails Facebook to thank them for the $2 million.
“On behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and by the authority delegated to me through Section 231 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. Section 238), as amended, thank you for Facebook’s non-monetary gift of advertising credited with an estimated value of $2,000,000.  The gift will be used by CDC’s COVID-19 response to support dissemination of critical public health messaging.  Thank you!”

In an email exchange between August 10-11, 2020, the CDC’s Sherri Berger emails Facebook again to thank them for another $1 million in ad credits with a similar message to that on March 14, except she adds: “This gift will be used by the CDC’s COVID-19 response to distribute scientifically accurate data, guidance and risk communication information on COVID-19 to a broader audience.” In an email exchange on August 25, 2020, Facebook makes CDC officials aware that of their recent gift of $1 million in ad credits, $529,207.42 remain.
In a heavily redacted email exchange on March 17, 2020, a Twitter official offers the CDC advertising in the form of Twitter’s Promoted Trend and Promoted Spotlight Trend, which have approximate values given as $75,000 and $150,000.
In an email exchange beginning March 16, 2020, a Google representative offers the CDC free video advertising on YouTube.  In the exchange, they claim to not be able to assign a dollar value to this advertising. The CDC’s official acceptance document for this advertising, which they value at $0, Sherri Berger states: I understand that Google LLC may be a vendor and/or lobbyist employed and that Google LLC’s employees may be registered lobbyists.  Providing the gift will not prevent Google LLC or its affiliates from supplying products of services to CDC in the future; CDC, however, is under no obligation to accept future services from Google LLC or its affiliates.
In a February 27, 2020 email, a Facebook representative offers to put CDC officials in contact with WhatsApp in order to establish auto-responses to FAQs about coronavirus in that communications platform.

These documents show that Facebook and the CDC are joined at the hip on managing the ever-changing Covid-19 “narrative” – which includes censorship of alleged “misinformation.” 
I suspect there is more to be found on this topic and Judicial Watch’s investigators and litigators will continue to expose the behind-the-scenes censorious machinations between Big Government and Big Tech that are  a threat to both the truth and your First Amendment rights. 

Chicago Mayor Says She Would “Absolutely” Discriminate Against White Reporters Again
In-your-face racism continues in the Chicago mayor’s office.
We filed an amended complaint in our lawsuit on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation and reporter Thomas Catenacci against Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for violating their First Amendment rights and Catenacci’s right to equal protection under the Fourteenth Amendment.
We sued in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, after Catenacci, a white male, emailed Lightfoot’s office requesting a one-on-one interview with the mayor and the office failed to reply to the request or Catenacci’s two additional follow-up emails (Catenacci et al v. Lightfoot (No. 1:21-cv-02852)). Christine Svenson of Svenson Law Offices in Palatine, Illinois, is assisting us with the lawsuit.
Mayor Lightfoot discriminated against journalists based on their race. We repeatedly requested that Lightfoot sign a consent decree agreeing not to use race-based criteria for interview requests for the remainder of her time in office. Not only did her lawyers ignore these requests, in a recent interview, an unrepentant Lightfoot told a New York Times writer, “I would absolutely do it again. I’m unapologetic about it because it spurred a very important conversation, a conversation that needed to happen, that should have happened a long time ago.”
“I cannot believe that Mayor Lightfoot told the New York Times reporter that she would absolutely discriminate against reporters again based on their race,” said Thomas Catenacci. “If she isn’t stopped, what’s next?”
“A policy of granting interviews based on the color of a reporter’s skin isn’t merely discriminatory, it undercuts the foundational principles of freedom of the press,” said DCNF acting editor in chief Thomas Phippen. “That Mayor Lightfoot is ‘unapologetic’ about her policy speaks volumes.”
In May, Lightfoot’s office informed multiple reporters that she would grant one-on-one interviews, “only to Black or Brown journalists.” The next day, the mayor released a letter doubling down on her discriminatory policy.
Our amended complaint explains:
On May 18, 2021, a Chicago reporter tweeted that Mayor Lightfoot’s spokesperson informed her that the mayor “is granting 1 on 1 interviews – only to Black or Brown journalists.” Mayor Lightfoot subsequently released a letter stating, “By now, you have heard the news that on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of my inauguration as Mayor of this great City, I will be exclusively providing one-on-one interviews with journalists of color.” Neither Mayor Lightfoot nor her spokesperson suggested that the mayor’s new, race-based interview policy was not permanent or identified any time limit on how long the mayor intended to use race-based criteria for granting interview requests.
Lightfoot’s communications director testified that the mayor used race-based criteria for granting interview requests for two days, May 19 and 20, and did not grant any interview requests to White reporters. Moreover, the mayor’s office has yet to respond to Catenacci’s request nor has the mayor agreed to an interview with him. Mayor Lightfoot’s response to the lawsuit is due by August 2, 2021, so stay tuned for updates soon.

Senior Judicial Watch Attorney Russell Nobile Testifies To Congress on Voting Rights Act
We are the leader in issues of election integrity and are educating Congress through witness testimony by our leading experts in the field of election law.Senior Attorney Russell Nobile testified before the House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties in a hearing titled, “The Need to Enhance the Voting Rights Act: Practice-Based Coverage.” (This is Russ’s third appearance before Congress in recent weeks!)
You can watch the hearing on our website.
In his testimony, he focused on new legislative efforts by Democrats in Congress that would effectively result in a federal takeover of election management and empower the Justice Department to veto voter ID and other widely used election integrity measures.  
From 2006 to 2012, Nobile worked as a trial attorney in the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division’s Voting Section, which is responsible for enforcing all provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, and the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.
Judicial Watch attorneys Robert Popper and Russell Nobile addressed the two houses of Congress on the importance of maintaining and protecting strong election security measures and have previously testified before both the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties and the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution.

Big Win at Supreme Court Signals Election Battles Ahead
If Americans can’t trust the outcome of elections, where are we? Our chief investigative correspondent, Micah Morrison, explains the high-stakes battles in his Investigative Bulletin.
Judicial Watch experts were up on Capitol Hill earlier this month explaining the implications of a big 6-3 Supreme Court ruling in the fierce battle for clean elections. The immediate issues in Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, v. Democratic National Committee et al  revolved around out-of-precinct voting and ballot harvesting. Should the Arizona practices be banned?
But both sides are hunting bigger game in the high-stakes case: Section Two of the Voting Rights Act. The standards set in Brnovich will impact a wide array of hot-button state election issues around the nation, including redistricting, voter ID, mail-in ballots, same-day registration, proof required for registration, early voting , third-party collection of ballots, and when polls can close on election day.
Reacting to the July 1 High Court ruling, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called it “a home run for cleaner elections, reaffirming that states may take action to prevent election fraud without waiting for it to occur within their own borders. This new decision rightly rejects the race baiting of the leftist partisans who pretend that neutral provisions to combat voter fraud (such as voter ID and bans on ballot harvesting) are presumptively racist.”
The Left went bonkers over Brnovich. President Biden called it a “broad assault against voting rights.” The New York Times editorial board said it was an “attack on democracy.” A Washington Post columnist said the decision leaves “voters of color increasingly vulnerable to efforts to exclude them from our democracy.”
Testifying before Capitol Hill committees two weeks later, Judicial Watch experts set the record straight. Judicial Watch Election Integrity Project Director Robert Popper condemned the “outrageous hyperbole” of critics of the Brnovich decision.
Popper noted that Section Two of the Voting Rights Act had given the rise in recent years to extreme lawsuits challenging “ordinary-seeming regulations—and changes to such regulations—governing, for example, the use of absentee ballots, in-precinct voting, early voting, voter ID laws, election observers same-day registration, durational residency requirements, and straight-ticket voting.” In a less highly charged political time, Popper noted, the 2005 bipartisan Carter-Baker Commission Report “had expressly noted the need for such regulations, including those regarding absentee ballots, out-of-precinct voting, early voting, in-person ID requirements, and election observers.”
One example of Section Two abuse? In the Husted case, a district court ruled that an Ohio law decreasing the early voting period from 35 to 29 days violated the Voting Rights Act because the change interacted with “historical and social conditions” afflicting minority voters.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision. It noted that the loss of one week of early voting was, at worst, a minor contraction of “one of the many conveniences that have generously facilitated voting participation in Ohio.” The appeals court also noted that thirteen states did not “permit any early in-person voting days.”
The Carter-Baker Commission recommendations and Husted are examples that should be kept in mind when assessing the hyperbole from the Left surrounding Brnovich and current challenges to election regulations, Popper noted.
Popper told Congress: “One hears—and large news outlets dutifully report— that there is a ‘tsunami’ of legislation ‘restricting the right to vote,’ that states reforming their mail-in voting laws as COVID retreats are engaged in ‘voter suppression,’ and even that these actions represent ‘the new Jim Crow.’ These claims are preposterous. At best, they reveal a startling historical ignorance. The grandfather laws, absurd literacy tests, poll taxes, intimidation and terroristic violence of the Jim Crow era have nothing whatever to do with, say, Ohio’s restriction of early voting from 35 to 29 days, or with limiting same-day registration. Nor do they have anything to do with regulating absentee ballots, out-of-precinct voting, or voter ID requirements, all reasonable electoral integrity measures approved by the Carter-Baker Commission. At worst these statements reveal a startling cynicism, driven by a desire to inflame passions—and to raise funds.”
Popper testified before a House Judiciary Committee subcommittee on July 16. Two days earlier, Judicial Watch Senior Attorney Russell Nobile spoke to a Senate subcommittee. Looking ahead, both men warned of trouble in the post-Brnovich landscape.
“In particular,” Popper noted, the Democrats’ top election bill priority in Congress—HR 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act—“is a bad idea.” It gives the attorney general “new, unchecked power” to sue directly for violations of the Constitution. The new powers likely would be centered in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department which, Popper warned, “has in the past proved to be a hotbed of partisanship.”
Russell Nobile noted in his Senate testimony that the “truth is that HR 4 goes far beyond any civil rights law enacted during the height of the civil rights era. Rather, it is part of a grander plan to shift control of American elections away from individual state legislatures and into the hands of a single federal bureaucratic department.” You can read more from Nobile on HR 4 and the looming election integrity crisis in this Judicial Watch report.
Nobile also noted problems at the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, where both he and Popper served earlier in their careers. Citing the recent “tremendous debate” over Critical Race Theory (CRT)—the Marxism-rooted ideology insisting that American democracy is suffused to its core by racism and must be dismantled—Nobile said that “there are few places in the federal government that are more dominated by the assumptions that underlie CRT. The partisanship and hostility towards staff that do not share the same assumptions is startling” and includes, from some, “a shocking level of intolerance.”
Nobile warns that even within highly political Washington, “the culture of the Voting Section stands out for its partisanship. Any legislation that shifts greater federal power to the Department’s Voting Section will make elections worse, not better.”

Woman Only Gets Two Years of Community Service for Crushing Her Newborn Baby’s Skull

Woman Only Gets Two Years of Community Service for Crushing Her Newborn Baby’s Skull

A British immigrant convicted of killing her newborn daughter by crushing her skull was sentenced to two years of community service this week in court.
The Scottish Sun reports Babita Rai, 24, who immigrated from Nepal the same year as her child’s birth, was convicted of infanticide in the 2017 incident. This week, she was sentenced to two years of community service, a fine and rehabilitation after spending 385 days in jail awaiting her sentence, according to the report.
Rai gave birth to her daughter on May 15, 2017 behind a tree in Manor Park in Aldershot, Hampshire, the report states. Authorities said she crushed her daughter’s skull and then hid the baby; a gardener found the baby’s body four days later.
Authorities said the baby died after suffering “significant” fractures to her skull caused by multiple “deliberate” blows. An autopsy also found bleeding on the baby’s spine and brain. Prosecutors said the baby girl survived between two and 12 hours with her injuries before she died.

Prosecutors said there is no way the baby could have sustained her injuries accidentally, according to the Daily Mail.
According to court testimony, Rai hid her pregnancy because she was not married and her family would have disapproved.
“[You were] living in a country that was not your home where you did not speak the language, where you were unable to access the services that are there to assist pregnant women and new mothers, and were wholly dependent on your family for whom this baby would have been regarded as a curse and not a blessing,” Justice Johnson said.
Lawyers for Rai also said she was suffering from PTSD at the time and cannot remember what happened the night she gave birth.
The jury did not convict her of murder based on the argument that her “mind was disturbed by not having fully recovered from the effect of giving birth.”
Afterward, Hampshire Police inspector Dave Storey told the Mirror that the case was “truly heartbreaking.”
Most countries have laws and resources to protect newborns from infanticide. In America, all 50 states have safe haven laws that allow mothers to safely surrender a newborn to authorities without fear of repercussions.

Mike Lindell and Fox News Go to War, and Lindell Just Fired The First Shot…

It’s no secret that there have been some tensions between Fox News and Mike Lindell, the CEO of “MyPillow.”
TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!
Lindell, a staunch supporter of President Trump, is convinced that there was significant fraud in the 2020 election, and he’s not shy about discussing it, which has gotten some folks, including Mike, into “legal trouble.”

Mike Lindell pulls MyPillow ads from Fox News

Mike Lindell pulls MyPillow ads from Fox News

by Jeremy Beaman, Breaking News Reporter | | July 29, 2021

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he directed the removal of his company’s advertisements from Fox News programming after the network declined to run one of his commercials.
The ad he sought to have aired promotes his cyber symposium event that will discuss the 2020 election. Lindell has repeatedly asserted the election was fraudulent, claiming Dominion Voting Systems machines were manipulated to steal votes from former President Donald Trump. Election officials and the company have rejected the claims.
Lindell asserted the commercial would not discuss claims of election fraud, according to the Wall Street Journal, but he has said the event will prove election fraud. Lindell also offered to award $5 million to any person attending the event who can disprove data he claims demonstrate election fraud.
MY PILLOW CEO MIKE LINDELL STORMS AWAY FROM INTERVIEW WITH DAILY SHOW CORRESPONDENT
“It’s unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on FOX News given the level of success he’s experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network,” the network said of Lindell’s decision.
Fox News didn’t say whether it declined Lindell’s symposium ad, but the two have had a storied year regarding the 2020 election. Lindell and Fox News have both been sued by Dominion Voting Systems.
In Lindell’s case, the company sued him for over $1 billion in damages in February, claiming he “maliciously spread false claims” about its operations during the election. Lindell subsequently filed his own lawsuit against the company.
Dominion also sued Fox News in March, saying the company “sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process.” Fox moved to dismiss the lawsuit in May.
The ad pull could hit Fox News where it hurts, as MyPillow shells out a lot of cash for ads on the network. The company spent nearly $50 million on Fox programming in 2020 and has spent $19 million already this year for ad time on the network, according to Lindell.

Governor Ron DeSantis Asks Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Governor Ron DeSantis Asks Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was one of a dozen governors Thursday who filed an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.
DeSantis and 11 other Republican governors wrote to support a Mississippi law before the Supreme Court that would ban abortions on unborn babies after 15 weeks of pregnancy. At issue in the case is the question of “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.”
In the brief, the governors urged the justices to give “this issue back to the people” and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortions again.
“Governor DeSantis believes in the sanctity of life and protection of the unborn,” a spokeswoman for the governor told the Tampa Bay Times in response to the brief.
Click here to sign up for pro-life news alerts from LifeNews.com
Last summer, DeSantis signed a pro-life law requiring underage girls to have at least one parent’s permission before having an abortion. A few months later, he told the Susan B. Anthony List Pro-Life Leaders Summit that “we will do everything we can to protect the unborn.”
When it comes to banning abortions, however, states are severely restricted by Roe v. Wade. The precedent set by Roe and subsequent abortion cases prevents states from banning abortions before an unborn baby is viable. The Mississippi case is a direct challenge to that precedent.
In the brief, DeSantis and 11 other governors said many judges have recognized the Fourteenth Amendment does not include any “right to terminate the life of an unborn child” and none of the Supreme Court’s major abortion rulings claim otherwise. Yet, in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court “somewhere” found a constitutional right to abortion and took away states’ rights to protect unborn babies, they wrote.
“The court should take this opportunity to correct the mistakes in its abortion jurisprudence and recognize that the text and original understanding of the Fourteenth Amendment have nothing to do with abortion,” the governors told the Supreme Court.
Abortion activists quickly criticized the governors for their pro-life stance. Florida state Rep. Anna Eskamani, D-Orlando, who used to work for Planned Parenthood, decried DeSantis as an “anti-abortion extremist” on Twitter.
“Gov. Ron DeSantis is an anti-abortion extremist who doesn’t think I have the capacity or deserve the right to make decisions about my body or pregnancy,” Eskamani wrote.
But polls indicate that most Americans agree with the Mississippi law and believe states should be allowed to protect unborn babies from abortion, especially after the first trimester.
A new AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found that 65 percent of Americans believe most or all second-trimester abortions should be illegal and 80 percent believe most or all abortions should be illegal in the third trimester. Gallup polls also consistently find that a majority of Americans want all or most abortions to be illegal.
The justices are scheduled to hear the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in October.

BREAKING: Mike Lindell pulls all MyPillow ads from Fox News for refusing to air commercial related to 2020 election fraud

BREAKING: Mike Lindell pulls all MyPillow ads from Fox News for refusing to air commercial related to 2020 election fraud

Mike Lindell has pulled all of his ads from Fox News, which are worth tens of millions of dollars, because they refused to air a new commrecial he created advertising a cyber symposium he’s hosting on the 2020 election fraud.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, one of Fox News’s big advertisers, says he is pulling his ads from the network after a disagreement over a proposed commercial promoting his claims of widespread voting fraud in the 2020 election.@AlexaCorse @BenMullin https://t.co/A3m6pgEMfl
— Alex Salvi (@alexsalvinews) July 30, 2021

Here’s more from WSJ:
The chief executive of MyPillow Inc., one of Fox News’s big advertisers, said he is pulling his ads from the network after a disagreement over a proposed commercial.
Mike Lindell said he made the decision after Fox News declined to run a commercial linked to his efforts to promote his claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Security and election officials have said there is no proof of widespread election fraud.
“It’s unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on FOX News given the level of success he’s experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network,” Fox News said in a statement.
Fox didn’t say whether it blocked the ad.
Mr. Lindell said he wanted to cancel the ads as soon as possible and that he had told his ad buyer to inform Fox News.
Mr. Lindell said he had asked the network to air a commercial promoting a cyber symposium, which he is scheduled to live stream next month. Mr. Lindell said the commercial wouldn’t specifically mention claims of election fraud. But he has said the symposium will prove the 2020 election was stolen from then-President Donald Trump through manipulation of election machines.
MyPillow is among Fox News’s major advertisers, alongside supplement company Balance of Nature and weight-loss products provider Nutrisystem, according to advertising analytics firm iSpot.tv.
MyPillow spent almost $50 million on Fox News last year and so far this year has shelled out about $19 million for ad time on the network, Mr. Lindell said.
I suspect Fox News wouldn’t air the election related ad to keep from giving Smartmatic more ammunition in their lawsuit against the news network, which they are seeking to have dropped:
Since the 2020 election, Mr. Lindell has emerged as one of the most prominent proponents of unproven theories that the election was stolen from Mr. Trump through widespread fraud. Voting-machine maker Dominion Voting Systems sued Mr. Lindell and MyPillow in February for defamation, seeking more than $1.3 billion in damages. He has countersued.
Fox News has been sued by voting-machine companies Smartmatic USA Corp. and Dominion Voting Systems, which allege the network’s hosts and guests made defamatory on-air comments about the companies’ products. Fox News has moved to dismiss both lawsuits, saying its coverage of claims about election fraud was newsworthy and protected by the First Amendment.
Mr. Lindell said he is being silenced over his election claims. He previously has said that a number of retailers have stopped selling his pillow company’s products since he began promoting the election-fraud claims. Some retailers have said that they dropped the products because of poor sales, not politics.
Note that Fox News calls Lindell’s ad pull a ‘pause’, so it may not be permanent. Given as much business as he does with the network, that would be a big thing to give up for his MyPillow company.

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Madison Cawthorn Slams Ongoing ‘Biden Border Crisis’

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Madison Cawthorn Slams Ongoing ‘Biden Border Crisis’

In an interview this week with Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., the congressman addressed the crisis on our southern border and offered additional details regarding “No-Fly for Illegals Act.”

Rep. Madison Cawthorn introduced legislation earlier this week which would effectively curb illegal migration domestically. The “No-Fly for Illegals Act” would prevent federal funds from being used to pay for commercial flights that transport illegal immigrants between states, with no legal accountability.

Slamming the Biden administration for endangering the “safety” of U.S. border communities, Cawthorn said “Safeguarding our border is a primary function of effective government,” which is a responsibility Biden is neglecting to take care of.

“Each day, the Biden Border Crisis continues; drugs, human trafficking, and lawlessness jeopardize the security of our community. Safeguarding our border is a primary function of effective government,” Cawthorn stated.

“Our border patrol stations are already above total capacity, some above 200% capacity,” the congressman continued. “With border facilities overrun, instead of fixing the root problem, the Biden Administration is looking to turn every town into a border town.”

Explaining why the “No-Fly for Illegals Act” would be beneficial to pass amid the border crisis, Cawthorn said it would “force the Biden Administration to take real steps to fix the crisis,” instead of sending “the results of their failed policies to your doorstep.”

He also indicated the bill could help decrease ongoing rates of human and sex trafficking resulting from Biden’s open border policies.

“The unprecedented amount of human/sex trafficking happening at our border, due to the Biden Administration’s failure to act, is a tragedy,” he told RSBN. “It’s utterly reprehensible that the Biden Administration would put leftist border policies over the safety and wellbeing of minors.”

Addressing the federal government’s abuse of the Transportation and Security Administration (TSA), which is supposed to be a nonpartisan agency, Cawthorn slammed the Biden Administration for turning a blind eye to illegal immigrants’ lack of proper identification and documentation.

“The federal government should be following federal law, not circumventing the rule of law for their radical partisan agenda,” said Cawthorn. “The brave men and women of TSA are just following orders, whether they’re complicit or not, they’re just doing their jobs.”

This comes after the TSA was reportedly caught making exceptions for migrants the Biden Administration is using tax dollars to fly across the country.

Cawthorn recently became one of many outspoken critics of the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis after visiting the border last month with President Donald Trump and other Republican elected officials.

DeSantis Wins Lawsuit Against CDC’s Unlawful Covid Mandates for Cruise Lines

DeSantis Wins Lawsuit Against CDC’s Unlawful Covid Mandates for Cruise Lines

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won a major battle last week against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “No-Sail Orders” for the cruise line industry. The latest court ruling will allow cruise lines to immediately resume operations.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed its initial decision that sided with the CDC on the case Florida v. Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services, No. 21-12243, siding instead with the state and deeming unlawful for the CDC to impose rules on the cruise industry.

“[On July 23] after Florida appealed to the United States Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit Court reversed its earlier decision and sided with the State of Florida against the CDC’s unlawful No-Sail Orders,” a news release from DeSantis’ office stated. “Following this decision, the cruise industry will be able to resume operations without adhering to the CDC’s unlawful and discriminatory rules.”

Rules cruise lines will no longer be required to adhere to include requiring that passengers provide proof of vaccination before onboarding, among other bureaucratic measures that made reopening of cruise lines a burdensome task. 

DeSantis expressed his satisfaction with the decision, stating that the CDC mandates “effectively mothballed the industry for more than a year.” The governor suggested that federal agencies will “be on thin legal and constitutional ice if and when it attempts to exercise such sweeping authority that is not explicitly delineated by law.”

One portion of an Emergency Application to Vacate the Eleventh Circuit’s Stay on the Preliminary Injunction issued by the Supreme Court on Friday stated that the cruise line industry was “fed up with waiting for the CDC to allow [them] to cruise.” The document added that Florida incurred lost revenue and irreparable harm, such as higher unemployment rates that accrued up to “tens of millions of dollars,” as a result of the CDC’s COVID-19 mandates. 

The injunction provided the recent case Alabama Association of Realtors, et. al v. CDC as a legal reason to explain that the CDC does not possess congressional authority to take control of private businesses. As in the case of Florida cruise lines, the agency is exceeding its legal authority.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, one of the leading plaintiffs that filed the lawsuit, has described the CDC in the past as an overreaching federal agency.

“The federal government does not, nor should it ever, have the authority to single out and lock down an entire industry indefinitely,” Moody said. “I am excited to see the cruise industry get sailing again, and proud to stand with Gov. Ron DeSantis against illegal federal overreach and draconian lockdown measures.”

GOP Lawmakers Denied Access to Federal Corrections Facility Holding Jan. 6 Prisoners

GOP Lawmakers Denied Access to Federal Corrections Facility Holding Jan. 6 Prisoners

Republican lawmakers, including Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., gathered for a press conference outside of the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to denounce the Department of Justice for denying them access to the D.C. federal corrections facility where Jan. 6 political prisoners are being detained and reportedly being mistreated.

At least one attorney for an inmate held at that facility appeared to have been prevented access which could indicate a possible violation of their Sixth Amendment.

RSBN attempted to enter the prison facility with the lawmakers that were patiently awaiting further instructions to go on their solicited tour of the facilities until prison authorities suddenly determined that their presence inside was considered “trespassing.” At this point, they were denied access to viewing the inmates’ living conditions.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., claimed, “Members of Congress need to conduct oversight, yet our letters and calls get ignored. Then we get told we are trespassing.”

“The American people deserve answers,” she said adding that the situation is “outrageous.”

My colleagues and I were locked out of the Deplorable Jail!Members of Congress need to conduct oversight, yet our letters and calls get ignored. Then we get told we are trespassing.The American people deserve answers! It’s outrageous!!pic.twitter.com/EmPjJfvupH— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) July 29, 2021

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed her frustrations about the DOJ’s lack of transparency and the unprecedented blocked access from these facilities.

Clarifying the reason for her visit, she said it was “to give oversight on a federal prison because we suspect there is a two-tiered justice system in the U.S. for Trump supporters that are charged for January 6th, and catch-and-release…for ANTIFA/BLM rioters.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., explained his issue with being locked out of the federal corrections facility and shed light on the ongoing disconnect between Republican legislators and the Biden Administration.

“Every day in America people are locked in prison; it’s not everyday that people are locked out of a prison — which is what happened to multiple members of Congress today,” said Gaetz. “How does the Biden Administration expect us to participate in the representative republic when they deprive us of access to information that would inform our oversight work and our appropriations decisions?”

This comes merely days after a press conference held by Reps. Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene on Tuesday, along with Reps. Andy Biggs and Bob Good, who stood outside the Department of Justice demanding answers about how prisoners were being treated after being arrested for their alleged involvements with the Jan. 6 riots. Examples of the alleged mistreatment the lawmakers listed include due process violations and excessive use of solitary confinement.

Democrat lawmakers began highly partisan hearings this week to investigate the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

The collapse of America: Where do we turn to when it is the government breaking its own laws?

The collapse of America: Where do we turn to when it is the government breaking its own laws?

USA- Law Enforcement Today has previously written on the alleged plot to “kidnap” Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the role of the FBI in the plot. We have also written on the similarities between that plot and the so-called January 6 “insurrection” at the US Capitol. A number of individuals have raised concerns about the government’s role in both incidents.
An op-ed by Judge Andrew Napolitano, a former Fox News contributor also raises many of the same questions about the Whitmer plot.
To summarize the plot, Whitmer was one of a number of governors who took the pandemic and used it as a means to take a stranglehold on the citizens of her state.
According to Napolitano and as we have previously stated, Whitmer imposed a number of draconian restrictions on her state, which included religious, travel and commercial activities, ostensibly to “slow the spread” of the virus.
As Napolitano notes, all of those restrictions were eventually found by courts to be unconstitutional under both Michigan and the United States Constitutions.
The plot involved around 16 individuals, who were ostensibly going to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home, try her in a so-called “court,” and implement some type of punishment.
However before the plot could unfold, the FBI intervened and arrested 14 of the plotters. The remaining two were not arrested due to one being a paid FBI informant while the other was an undercover FBI agent.
Meanwhile last week in federal court, pleadings entered by defense attorneys alleged the FBI played more than just a supporting role in the scheme. The defendants alleged that the FBI had, according to Napolitano, “enticed, cajoled and manipulated them into this plot, and even trained them and paid their expenses.”
So when exactly does the FBI go from “investigating” such a plot to actually facilitating it? The Whitmer case provides a fascinating example.
Napolitano relates the FBI’s history of perfecting such a scheme, or sting if you will. After the September 11 terrorist attacks, FBI agents sought to find young Arab males in the United States, looking in particular for loners who didn’t have a lot going on with their lives and coerced them into participating in plots to attack the country.
For example, the FBI facilitated plots and provided bogus “explosives” to these dupes for the purposes of bombing the New York City subway system and the Brooklyn Bridge, Napolitano said, then swooping in like a white knight and disrupting the “plots” before they could be “carried out.”
This happened not once or twice but according to Napolitano dozens of times. The targets of these plots were identified by gender and ethnicity—in other words they were profiled, this despite the fact that federal law strictly prohibits such profiling as “sole or even a significant basis for prosecutorial decisions.”
Napolitano lays the blame for some of this on the United States Supreme Court and some decisions which “permit law enforcement to lie, deceive and talk persons into committing crimes.” The only caveat is that these persons were “predisposed” to committing such acts prior to law enforcement entering the picture.
So, as the judge says, such a plot would involve an undercover agent engaging in a conversation with an appropriate target, be it on the street, in a bar or over the internet in a chat room. The agent’s role is to investigate the target’s inclination to commit a crime. That sets the stage for the plot to begin.
Once that predisposition is uncovered, it’s pretty much open game, according to Napolitano.
Once the target appears to be a willing participant in a “crime” that was never going to occur or which would be “prevented” from occurring, the government can swoop in, arrest and prosecute the mark. Napolitano alleges this is exactly what the defense is alleging to have happened in the Whitmer kidnapping “plot.”
Now of course, the federal government doesn’t want this to go to trial because of the discovery process whereby they would be forced to reveal their “sources and methods” to a jury.
In order to avoid that, they, according to Napolitano “grossly overcharge the defendant,” hopeful that the threat of lengthy jail time will spook the defendant, his attorney, or both into accepting a guilty plea to a lesser charge with a lesser jail term. All for a crime that was never going to take place.
Napolitano outlines a number of issues with such behavior by the federal law enforcement apparatus.
First, he says “the illicit use of government assets to entrap an innocent person” presents at least a few problems. The first issue is how exactly does the government decide who they are going to suck in to such a scheme?
There is also, he notes an absence of due process, which the feds fear. He notes the federal government doesn’t want a jury saying, “enough is enough,” therefore the reason for overcharging and pushing a plea bargain.
A conspiracy case requires that the defendant act in the role of a conspirator—in other words a person who conspired with others to commit a crime, one of whom took a “material step in furtherance of the crime.”
This requires the government to have the “target” take a material step in furtherance of the scheme by, as in the above case for example, having him/her deliver what he/she believes to be is an explosive, but which is not.
When the dupe arrives at the scene of the intended “crime,” the FBI or other investigative agency is there ready to swoop in and make the arrest.
Napolitano noted he had interviewed FBI officials about such a scenario. He noted that on the record, they said nobody was harmed and nobody was endangered by the plot hatched and facilitated by the federal government. They also argued that a so-called “bad person, predisposed to crime” was taken “off the streets.”
Of course all of this flies in the face of the First Amendment because as Napolitano notes “being bad and having a criminal predisposition” are not criminal in and of themselves. They are, Napolitano says, “states of mind protected by the First Amendment.”
To be clear, this is not a knock on an overwhelming majority of the FBI, the special agents across the country who daily do their best to defend and protect our country from nefarious actors.
However schemes such as the above, often hatched by politically motivated bureaucrats are often manufactured in order to elevate the status of certain members of the FBI and “are concocted to make the FBI look like heroes who swooped in to save the public at the last minute.”
Napolitano stated:
“Before the courts began permitting this behavior by law enforcement, every definition of crime used the word ‘harm.’ Eventually ‘harm’ became ‘wrong.’ At common law, the only crimes were malum in se, acts that are wrong in and of themselves, such as aggression against a person or property. Eventually, crimes became malum prohibitum, wrong because they are prohibited.”
The initial incarnation addressed above follows natural law, the so-called “nonaggression” principle that prohibits everyone, including the government “from initiating or threatening force or interference.”
The second incarnation, “wrong because they are prohibited,” is as Napolitano notes “big government run wild, which defines whatever it wants wrong—even a mythical FBI-created plot to kidnap a public official that could never come to pass.”
Napolitano noted that in the United States Constitution, there are only two crimes identified—treason and debasing the monetary unit.
However due to government rewarding its supporters and punishing enemies, it has implemented over 4,400 federal criminal statutes, many implemented by making unlawful “whatever it deemed wrong at the moment.”
Out of those 4,400 federal criminal statutes, many permit the feds themselves to commit crimes in order to investigate and prosecute other crimes, Napolitano says.
Napolitano closed with:
“Is this the government the framers of the Constitution gave us? Regrettably, this is what the government they gave us has become.”
Keep an eye on the trials coming out of the January 6 “insurrection.” The parallels between those cases and the Michigan cases are stark, chief among them the “unindicted co-conspirators” in the January 6 siege.

Below is one of our prior reports on the Whitmer kidnapping scheme:
DIG DEEPER
MICHIGAN- A shocking new revelation has come about in the case of five defendants arrested in connection with an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).
According to BuzzFeed, the federal government in the form of the FBI used at least a dozen confidential informants to infiltrate the group involved in the scheme, according to a federal court filing on Monday.
In the filing from the attorney of one of the five defendants in the case, prosecutors are being asked to release information about those twelve informants, including their relationship with the FBI as well as what role if any they played in developing the case.
The filing was among some 15 new defense motions filed by defense attorneys. Other requests are for a change in venue, motions to suppress evidence gathered in a search warrant, and a request to try at least one of the defendants separately.
Taken in totality, the filings indicate the course defense attorneys may be pursuing in the case, with at least some of them indicating they plan to pursue a defense that the FBI had “induced or persuaded” the defendants to go along with the plot.
Last October, the plot to allegedly kidnap Whitmer, one of the most dictatorial of US governors during the COVID-19 pandemic, was revealed by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
The announcement that six men had been charged in an alleged kidnapping conspiracy involving Whitmer went viral. Five of the men charged—Barry Croft, Adam Fox, Daniel Harris, Kaleb Franks, and Brandon Caserta—have all pleaded not guilty and are currently being held without bail.
The sixth suspect, Ty Garbin pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in the case last January. It is unknown if prosecutors made a plea deal with him to gain his cooperation.
The DOJ said the defendants had met over a six-month period last year, where they had developed the scheme to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home, then removing her out of state where she would be put on “trial” for being a “tyrant.” The plot was derailed before it was executed when the DOJ arrested the alleged plotters.
In addition to the six, eight other men were charged under the state’s anti-terrorism laws for providing material support to the defendants. All but two of the defendants live in Michigan, and at least half of the defendants are members of the militant Wolverine Watchmen, a militant group which has been associated with the Three Percenters, a militia group, BuzzFeed said.
The flurry of defense motions came Monday since it was the deadline for such motions in the case.
Federal prosecutors have admitted to using informants in the case, however thus far their activities and identities have been closely held, with the exception of one who testified in March.
Thus far, the DOJ has provided ID numbers connected to 12 confidential informants, however with only one exception has refused to provide background on how they were recruited, what compensation if any they received from the FBI, where they are based or their names, according to Franks’ attorney.
The attorney, Scott Graham said that such information is vital in “preparation of a defense to the charges.”
Franks has asked for his case to be moved out of the Western District of Michigan, claiming “press coverage of (and participation in) this matter has corrupted the potential trial atmosphere to the point that Mr. Franks will be denied a fair trial in Michigan.”
In claiming media involvement in the case, Graham specifically identified a motion filed by BuzzFeed seeking to obtain access to exhibits revealed at a hearing relative to the case in January and cited the risk of “prejudice in this case based on the extensive, negative pervasive press coverage of the allegations.”
In addition to the change of venue, Graham has also requested that Franks be tried separately, primarily because he isn’t facing a bomb charge that was added to the case earlier this year.
That particular count, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, was applied to three of the other defendants in the case, who allegedly attempted to build explosive devices or procure bomb-making materials.
Graham noted that by combining the cases, potential commentary by the government in court about that particular charge “will certainly go far in frightening jurors and eliciting emotional decisions from them.”
An attorney for Croft on Sunday filed a motion, claiming the government had provided over 5,000 duplicate files as it shared evidence, with at least 15 copies of the same audio recording. That, he said significantly increases the burden on the defense.
Croft’s attorney, Joshua Blanchard, also asked the court to exclude evidence that was secured from Croft’s Delaware home during an October search, claiming they were outside the scope of the warrant. Included in those items included a 1-kilogram silver bar, a handwritten note cipher, and “Mr. Croft’s hat.”
Apparently, Croft is allegedly known among Three Percenters of wearing a tri-corner hat much like those worn during the American Revolution.
Law Enforcement Today has previously reported on the Whitmer case and possible FBI involvement. For more on that, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
The following contains editorial content by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI- Last week, the mainstream media breathlessly reported that “right wing extremists” had launched an effort to kidnap the far-left governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.
Of course Whitmer seized on those reports, blaming President Donald Trump’s “extremist rhetoric” for inflaming people to the point where they were going to take Whitmer hostage. However, details have emerged which may derail the narrative.
The Detroit Free Press reported on a bail hearing that took place on Tuesday and buried deep inside the story is what could be considered an important piece of information, and which may actually show that the “right wing militia” was in fact led to hatch the plot at the behest of one of the FBI informants.
According to defense attorney Scott Graham, he said that it was in fact informants and undercover agents who “pushed” the others to engage in illegal activity.
“One of the most active leaders was your informant,” Graham said.
The defense attorneys contended in their arguments to release the defendants on bail that there had been no probable cause to arrest and charge the suspects, saying that they had no “operational plans to do anything,” and that they had in fact been “engaged in legal activities—including talking in encrypted group chats and practicing military exercises with lawfully owned guns,” according to Graham.
Graham said that the FBI informant who wore wires to the militia meetings acted in more than just the capacity of an undercover observer.
The question became were these militia members victims of an entrapment scheme by the FBI? Certainly that is the narrative that Graham is trying to pursue. Was the FBI trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack as something of a false flag maneuver, and if so, why?
Clearly, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility after all we have discovered about the FBI’s complicity since 2016 in trying to take down the Trump administration. FBI Director Christopher Wray recently tried to downplay the violent, left-wing group Antifa, while trying to bolster the existence of right wing extremism.
An overwhelming majority of FBI agents are good and honorable people. The same cannot be said about their leadership, with former FBI Director James Comey and former Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe being outed as being intimately tied to the plot to undermine President Trump.
Is it too much to think that perhaps there is more to this “plot” to kidnap Whitmer than meets the eye? Probably not.
We have seen that the so-called “deep state,” the inner cabal of Washington insiders is not above trying to affect a presidential election.
The whole “Russia hoax” fiasco was perpetrated in large part by Comey and willing accomplices in the FBI, such as Peter Strzok and Lisa Paige. Was the FBI trying to manufacture an “October surprise” to influence the upcoming election? Who knows? Possible? Yes.
Still, given what we now know about the FBI and more recently the CIA, it is possible.
When the plot to allegedly kidnap Whitmer went public, the usual suspects in the mainstream DNC media jumped on the opportunity to tie it into President Trump, blaming his so-called “anti-lockdown” and “pro-militia” rhetoric for the plot, even though leaders of the group were by and large anti-Trump.
In speaking to the “plot” in Michigan, Graham offered the argument that there wasn’t in fact a plot to kidnap Whitmer, but it was more along the lines of “military wannabes” who engaged in “big talk.”
“Have you ever dealt with big talkers?” Graham asked an FBI agent during cross examination. “There’s kind of a military-wanna-be theme that runs between the militias.”
Graham was questioning FBI special agent Richard Trask about testimony that claimed a minimum of 13 so-called militia members had plotted to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home and either leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan or take her to Wisconsin where she would be tried for treason.

Under examination, Trask was asked how the members of the militia had planned on getting Whitmer to Wisconsin.
The agent couldn’t answer the question, and could only say that there were allegedly audio recordings of the suspects saying that they were planning on taking Whitmer to another state, including Wisconsin.
Again, the agent was asked by Graham what the suspects were going to do with Whitmer after leaving her in the lake, only saying that the alleged ringleader of the group, Adam Fox had said they were going to “take her out on a boat and leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan.”
Graham represents Kaleb Franks, 26, who ended up having his bail denied on Tuesday after the judge was convinced he was a danger to society. Two other suspects, Daniel Harris, 23 and Brandon Caserta, 32, were also refused bond.
The remaining bond hearings have been scheduled for Friday, this time for Fox and Ty Garbin, 24.
The five defendants appeared in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, where the case involving Whitmer was disclosed.
In addition, the group had also talked about kidnapping Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, he of the blackface college pictures, as well as one of the suspects—a decorated Marine—allegedly asked his co-conspirators if they wanted to kill a Maine police officer for one of his friends.
 Meantime, the defense lawyers claimed that the government has only produced small samples of conversations in the case, and said that the government has no evidence that the accused had any real plan to kidnap Whitmer.
The five men were setup in a scheme to purchase explosives and tactical gear from someone, however when they arrived FBI agents were there instead.
One of the defense attorneys, Gary Springstead, who is representing Garbin said that there is still much more evidence to be presented.
“I haven’t had a full opportunity to review all the evidence,” Springstead said. “I think my co-counsel made good pints that (the evidence presented today) is a snapshot. A lot of quick points in a big time frame. You don’t know what else is happening outside of that time frame.”
“So I’m sure in our investigation (which) we’re going to conduct ourselves, and not rely solely on the federal government to tell us what happened, we’ll try to round out that information and figure out what happened in the times that weren’t captured on tape that weren’t captured in text to put it into fuller context so we can better assess where we stand in the case.”
Springstead also spoke to using an informant in this case is troublesome, especially given the role they played.
“It’s become an issue in certain cases where the informant pushes some of the information, and the court and the government and the defense attorneys have to be leery of that,” he told reporters.
“Because their job is not to assess what the government informant wants them to do, it’s to assess the accused’s intent and what they actually planned on doing.”
Ironically, the Washington Examiner reported that Daniel Harris, 23, one of the so-called “white supremacists” who was involved with the plot, had attended a Black Lives Matter rally in June, telling the Oakland County Times that he was upset about the death of George Floyd and police violence, as reported in the Washington Post.  
Harris told the Oakland County Times: “We went to the BLM protest yesterday in Lake Orion to show our support that everyone’s voice should be heard, no matter the color on your skin. Protesting is important to me because it gives us all a voice to be heard.”
Sounds like a white supremacist to us.

Senator issues urgent warning, says Biden administration pushing amnesty plan, dismantling of ICE

Senator issues urgent warning, says Biden administration pushing amnesty plan, dismantling of ICE

WASHINGTON, D.C.- On Tuesday, July 27th, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) appeared on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle” and warned viewers that the Biden administration, at the direction of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, was in the process of setting up amnesty for illegal immigrants in the United States and effectively dismantling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

Sen. Tom Cotton: Biden’s border crisis is a national emergency. Dems’ shocking amnesty ploy must be stoppedhttps://t.co/sMyiib5EUf
— Loraine Pellegrino (@Loraine4Az) July 29, 2021

Hawley stated that such a plan was bad for the country. Host Laura Ingraham said:
“Senator, they won’t come out and say it, but you can’t convince me that this isn’t what the Democrats want, a massive influx of humanity into the United States.”
Hawley replied by saying:
“Laura, it’s exactly what they want. And I think one of the reasons that Secretary Mayorkas wouldn’t say that their plans weren’t working, he just wouldn’t answer that question, is because their plan is an open border. Their plan is amnesty and their plan is to dismantle ICE.”

I think Biden and his Administration should be arrested for treason and as a traitor to the American people.

He added:
“And by the way, they’re doing every single one of those things and they’re trying to call it different things. They’re trying to label it in different ways.”
Hawley continued:
“They’re trying to hide it. But, when you look at what’s happening, you see a border that is open. You see easy, effective amnesty for criminals and then you see them taking away ICE’s enforcement capability. This is their plan and they are executing on it. And boy, is it bad for this country.”

Fox News reported that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) also recently warned against Democrats’ pursuing an amnesty plan in their upcoming budget bill that will be an even bigger magnet for more illegal immigration. 
On his first day in office, President Biden rescinded the proclamation declaring a national emergency at the southern border. Shortly after that, he cut off funding for the border wall and virtually gutted all of the Trump-era policies that helped reduce illegal immigration.
The consequences of his actions are not surprising as record numbers of illegal immigrants from Central America and elsewhere are now streaming across the border, taking full advantage of the Democrats’ open-border policies.
In June alone, Border Patrol agents caught more than 180,000 illegal immigrants trying to sneak into the country. This is the highest number reported in more than two decades and with six months into 2021, more than one million illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border.

Biden’s proposed amnesty for illegal aliens would be a disaster for America. Thank goodness one brave Democrat politician agrees https://t.co/lLstXi2LIr
— Marianne (@MarianneSansum) July 29, 2021

Thousands more are not recorded, which means they snuck into the country undetected along with untold amounts of deadly drugs like heroin and fentanyl that are killing Americans in record numbers.
If the Democrats actually wanted to stop this rising tide of illegal immigration and drugs and protect the American people, they would reverse course now and call this situation exactly what it is: a national emergency. 
They would build the border wall, reinstate the enhanced border protections put in place by the Trump administration and deport lawbreakers. Instead, Democrat lawmakers are doing absolutely nothing to stop this crisis that they themselves created. 
They are throwing fuel on the fire by trying to force a massive amnesty through the Senate by a bare, partisan vote. Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA) said he expects this amnesty to go into effect within just a “couple of months, if all necessary steps are taken.”

Report: Democrats trying to hide amnesty in a $10 billion ‘border project’ – part of $3.5 trillion ‘reconciliation’ bill
July 27th, 2021
WASHINGTON, DC – Democrats are playing a shell game with the American taxpayer as they try to cover a $120 billion in amnesty funding with a $10 billion shell in their massive $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.

Here it comes… https://t.co/T7T9kq5VBH
— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) July 25, 2021

The funding is designed to appear as funds to increase border security.
The funds could be used toward facilities to handle asylum claims, expanding immigration courts to process a backlog of claims, fund alternatives to detention, and staff to support the influx of border crossers entering the country.
The Democrats’ plan is expected to set aside $120 billion for establishing a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, as well as other groups that could include farmworkers, according to Senate aides.
The $10 billion is just one way the proposed spending bill is hiding amnesty.
Democrats are using the bill as a vehicle to bypass citizen concerns that such action would lead to fewer jobs for Americans, more welfare recipients, lower wages, and increased threats of crime and terrorism.
The reconciliation bill, designed as a method to set budget and spending, avoids the filibuster process, and requires only a majority vote in the Senate to pass. The normal process requires 60 votes to pass the 100-member Senate.

Illegal Border Crossings On Pace To Top 1M This Month (A million a month for four years, you do the math, the Democrats claim they will include amnesty for Millions of illegals inside their reconciliation bill, pass it without a single Republican vote)
https://t.co/J0qSIaRkFq
— Pog (@OSINT220) July 24, 2021

Avoiding the filibuster is important for this Senate, as the chamber is evenly split 50-50. Without going through filibuster, Vice President Kamala Harris could cast the deciding tie-breaking vote in favor of Democrats.
Passing the bill will not be an easy chore for Democrats with their amnesty program hidden within the funding. There are strict rules in place to ensure that the bill only deals with budget issues.
Senate rules require that the Senate Parliamentarian reject any portion of a reconciliation bill that involves policy rather than budgetary concerns.
Despite their hidden plan, the Left has leaked their true plans on several occasions. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said during an interview on NewsHour with Judy Woodruff:
“Well, we’re trying to cover people who have been in the forefront, among other things, of protecting our economy, critical care workers, dreamers, and others.
“I have believed for a long time, as I think almost all the members of the Democratic caucus and some Republicans, that the time is long overdue to pass comprehensive immigration reform and a path toward citizenship.
“So, we can’t completely, the way I would like to do it, in a reconciliation bill. There are real constraints, in terms of policy, that you can do. We (are) going to do the best we can.”

Woodruff then asked Sanders if amnesty and a path to citizenship were in the bill. The Senator answered, “Yes.”
Another member of the Senate Budget Committee, Sen. Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM) tested effectiveness of the $10 billion smokescreen during an interview with Axios:
“I’ve consistently advocated for making smart, modern investments when it comes to border security, including requiring 100% of screening of passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles that come into the United States.”
Democrats also face the hurdle of moderate party members like Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who are concerned about the huge price tag of the bill.
Despite the hurdles, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) set Wednesday as the deadline for getting all 50 Democrats on board for the partisan bill. Schumer wants the bill passed before the summer break.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has suggested Republicans leave Washington in an attempt to block Democrats from passing the bill under reconciliation:
“If they put in amnesty in…that’s an assault on the system as we know it. We should use any tool in our box to stop it.”
Graham took his que from Texas Democrats who fled the state earlier this month to avoid a vote on stricter voting laws.
His plan is not generally accepted as viable by most Republicans.
Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) said Senate Republicans would face the same problem as the Democratic House members in Texas:
“Eventually they’re going to have to go back. So, all it does is delay it.”

Democrats write letter to Biden: Illegal immigrants are ‘American heroes’ and deserve amnesty
April 16, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In a recent letter to President Joe Biden, a group of 22 Democrats, including Reps. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and Ted Lieu (D-CA) as well as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Alex Padilla (D-CA) asked the White House to add amnesty for at least 5.2 million illegal immigrants in an economic relief and infrastructure package.

Dems urge Biden to include amnesty for some illegal immigrants in second spending billhttps://t.co/MM8MPl7a5w

In their letter, the Democrats wrote:
“We write to urge you to prioritize the inclusion of H.R. 1909/S. 747, the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act, which would create a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrant essential workers, as part of the American Families Plan and your legislative package on jobs and infrastructure.”
The letter added:
“If Republicans continue to refuse to advance immigration legislation supported by the overwhelming majority of the American people, the next reconciliation package on jobs and infrastructure should include citizenship for essential workers.”
They continued by saying:
“Speaker Pelosi has already indicated her support for including immigration legislation in legislative packages advanced through budget reconciliation given the clear ‘case about the budget implications if immigration,’ while the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and 100 members of the Democratic Caucus have also urged the inclusion of a pathway to citizenship for essential workers in COVID-19 relief legislation.
The upcoming legislative package on jobs and infrastructure is the best opportunity to recognize and reward the sacrifices and labor of essential workers.”
Castro’s amnesty plan would all illegal immigrants to take American jobs in at least 20 different occupations to adjust status to become legal permanent residents, thus securing a green card to remain in the United States.
After that, those eligible illegal immigrants would then be able to apply for American citizenship after five years of living in the U.S. on a green card. Biden, himself, has also proposed an amnesty plan.
https://twitter.com/USSANews/status/1382714129278922755
However, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) quickly admitted that that proposal does not have support.
Biden’s amnesty plan would bring a foreign population to the U.S. close to the size of California by 2031, permanently resettling more than 37.3 million foreign nationals in the nation.
Recently, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Vice President Neil Bradley called amnesty for illegal immigrants “critically important. Corporate interests and donors have reportedly led lobbying initiatives to pressure Washington, D.C. lawmakers to back amnesty. 
Economist George Borjas called mass immigration the “largest anti-poverty program” at the expense of Americans working and lower-middle class. The biggest winners are corporations and investors who can keep the cost of labor low and have a steady stream of consumers to buy their products and services.
Other research has found that current legal immigration to the U.S. results in more than $350 billion worth of lost wages for Americans. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has also noted that mass immigration cuts Americans’ wages.

Dems: Illegals Are ‘American Heroes‘ Who Deserve Amnesty from Biden https://t.co/IowJxDFogT via @BreitbartNews
— DesertReporter (@DesertReporter) April 15, 2021

Back in 2013, a CBO analysis stated that the “Gang of Eight” amnesty plan would “slightly” push down wages for the American workers. A 2020 CBO analysis stated:
“Immigration has exerted downward pressure on the wages of relatively low-skilled workers who are already in the country, regardless of their birthplace.”
It is also reported that every year, about 1.2 million legal immigrants receive green cards to permanently resettle in the U.S. In addition, 1.4 million foreign nationals get temporary visas to fill U.S. jobs that would otherwise go to Americans. 
The Democrats amnesty plan would apply to illegal immigrants working in a broad array of sectors, including health care, emergency response, sanitation, restaurant ownership, food preparation, vending, catering, food packaging, meat processing, hotel or retail work, agricultural work, landscaping, construction, nanny services, and house cleaning and janitorial services as well as those operating laundromats. 
It would also apply to those who work in those industries but lost their job due to the coronavirus pandemic and illegal immigrant relatives of those who died of COVID-19. The plan includes an immediate adjustment to a green card, followed by a path to full citizenship, which would include the right to vote.

Abortion Activists Vandalize Pro-Life Billboard, Write “F— the Babies” On It

Abortion Activists Vandalize Pro-Life Billboard, Write “F— the Babies” On It

Abortion activists vandalized a pro-life billboard last week in Cody, Wyoming, scribbling “F— the babies” over a message offering help to mothers in need.
The Cody Enterprise reports pro-life advocates with Park County Right to Life and Sioux Falls Area Right to Life noticed the vandalism July 22 and reported it to the Park County Sheriff’s Office.
Located on Belfry Highway, the billboard shows the image of a baby and the message: “Save the babies. Heartbeat [at] 18 days.” It also includes a phone number for pregnant mothers to call for help.
The vandals used green paint to scribble “F— the babies” over the billboard. They also drew smiley faces including one with devil horns, according to the Enterprise.
Sheila Leach, vice president of Park County Right to Life, said the vandalism is “very vulgar,” and it appears to have been planned in advance.
“My thought is to leave it for awhile,” she told the newspaper. “I want people to see what the message is. See what has been done to it. Hopefully it will make people angry.
“This country is becoming more and more polarized,” Leach continued. “We each should be able to express our different opinions.”

The pro-life advocates said the current billboard has been up for about two years, but their organization has been sponsoring pro-life billboards at the location for about 15 years.
Carol Armstrong, another pro-life advocate with the group, had a message for abortion activists, “If you don’t like the message, do your own billboard.”
Pro-life advocates frequently are targets of vandalism, harassment, threats and violence just because of their beliefs.
LifeNews.com recorded nearly 200 incidents in the past three years, including a bomb threat during a 40 Days for Life event in Minnesota, the brutal attack of an older pro-life man outside an abortion facility in San Francisco, a pro-life banner set on fire inside a Western Washington University building, and a man charged with pulling a gun on pro-lifers outside a Delaware abortion facility.

Poll: Donald Trump Jr., Ron DeSantis Lead Among GOP Frontrunners

Poll: Donald Trump Jr., Ron DeSantis Lead Among GOP Frontrunners

Donald Trump Jr. and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis remain the most popular figures within the Republican party surpassing other key GOP leaders, according to a new survey.

Axios released the poll by Fabrizio, Lee & Associates this week showing Donald Trump Jr. as the most popular frontrunner with 55 percent of respondents’ support while DeSantis came in at a very close second place with 54 percent. 800 likely Republican voters participated in the survey conducted in early July.

The survey shows House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy coming in third, with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., trailing behind in third and fourth place, respectively.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell came in fifth place followed by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who President Trump has coined a “RINO” for her affinity to part ways with “America First” values.

Just last week, President Trump announced he would meet with Cheney’s potential primary challengers in New Jersey as Republicans gear up for flipping seats in both the House and the Senate in the 2022 midterm elections.

“Some highly respected pollsters tell me she’s toast in Wyoming after siding with Crazy Nancy Pelosi and supporting the Democrat Impeachment Hoax,” Trump stated.

The Wyoming congresswoman has been under constant fire in recent months for her anti-Trump rhetoric, tendency to diverge from GOP messaging, and most notoriously, her vote to impeach Trump back in January.

Trump, who is expected to announce an endorsement in the race, also made it clear that it is imperative there only be one GOP challenger to Cheney in order to help the party’s chances of ousting the congresswoman from her post.

The poll results come amid uncertainty as to who will represent the party in 2024, although conservatives across the nation dub both Trump Jr. and DeSantis as top contenders if former President Trump does not run again. If President Trump does run again, there is no doubt he will be the GOP nominee.

President Trump: “We Won’t Go Back” to Mask Mandates

President Trump: “We Won’t Go Back” to Mask Mandates

President Trump said in a statement on Tuesday that Americans have learned how to live safely and responsibly when it comes to COVID-19, referring to the Biden White House’s push for another round of mask mandates.

“We won’t go back. We won’t mask our children. Joe Biden and his Administration learned nothing from the last year. Brave Americans learned how to safely and responsibly live and fight back. Don’t surrender to COVID. Don’t go back,” said Trump.

He finished his statement by saying, “Why do Democrats distrust the science? Don’t let this happen to our children or our Country.”

President Trump voiced his opinion on the possible resurgence of mask mandates after the CDC issued new guidance on Tuesday recommending that both vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans wear masks indoors. The White House has already reinstated the mask requirement, only two months after it was lifted for vaccinated staff.

Capitol Physician Brian Monahan on Tuesday sent out an alert announcing that the House would also require mask-wearing again for meetings that are held in enclosed spaces.

“For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan wrote.

Also in Monahan’s statement, he mentioned a penalty for not complying with the new White House guidelines. “Failure to wear a mask in the hall of the House is subject to fines imposed for violation as contained in the previous House rule.”

“In the past two weeks, USA coronavirus cases have significantly increased, now approaching 100,000 cases per day,” said the physician. “The delta variant virus has been detected in Washington, DC and in the Capitol buildings. It represents a dire health risk to unvaccinated individuals and is not without some risk to the vaccinated individuals or their unvaccinated household contacts.”

New mask mandates face steep opposition from many GOP leaders and have even been banned in many Republican-led states. Laws have been passed restricting state and local governments from imposing mask orders in Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Montana, and North Dakota.

Republican Governors Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade So States Can Ban Abortions

Republican Governors Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade So States Can Ban Abortions

All across the country, Americans are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and end the atrocity of abortion.
On Thursday, a group of pro-life Republican governors joined the throng when they filed an amicus brief asking the justices to allow states to protect unborn babies from abortion once again, The Hill reports.
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster led the brief, joined by the governors of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma and Texas.
They wrote to support a Mississippi law before the Supreme Court that would ban abortions on unborn babies after 15 weeks. At issue in the case is the question of “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.”
The governors said many judges have recognized the Fourteenth Amendment does not include any “right to terminate the life of an unborn child” and none of the Supreme Court’s major abortion rulings claim otherwise. Yet, in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court “somewhere” found a constitutional right to abortion and took away states’ rights to protect unborn babies, they wrote.
Please follow LifeNews.com on Gab for the latest pro-life news and info, free from social media censorship.
“The court should take this opportunity to correct the mistakes in its abortion jurisprudence and recognize that the text and original understanding of the Fourteenth Amendment have nothing to do with abortion,” the governors told the Supreme Court.
They urged the justices to give “this issue back to the people” and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortions again.
In Roe and later Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the Supreme Court prohibited states from banning abortions before an unborn baby is viable. As a result, the U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
But viability is a moving line. Around the time of Roe v. Wade, babies were considered to be viable at about 28 weeks of pregnancy, but as medicine advanced, the line moved back to 24 weeks and now is about 22 weeks.
For years, many states have tried to challenge the arbitrary “viability” precedent, passing laws to ban abortions completely or at various stages of pregnancy. That precedent is the key issue before the Supreme Court in the Mississippi case.
Last week, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch filed her arguments to the high court, urging it to allow states to protect unborn babies again.
“The only workable approach to accommodating the competing interests here is to return the matter to ‘legislators, not judges,’” Fitch wrote. “…The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
Many others also are filing briefs to the Supreme Court in support of unborn babies’ right to life, including Dr. Alveda King, more than 300 state lawmakers, professors from Princeton and Oxford universities, National Right to Life, Americans United for Life, Students for Life, the Center for Medical Progress and other leading pro-life organizations.
A new AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found that a strong majority of Americans believe states should be allowed to ban abortions after the first trimester. According to the poll, 65 percent said most or all second-trimester abortions should be illegal; the number increased to 80 percent in the third trimester.
The justices are scheduled to hear the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in October.

CDMedia Launches Inquiry With GA Attorney General As To Status Of Any Investigation Of Already Proven Election Fraud

CDMedia Launches Inquiry With GA Attorney General As To Status Of Any Investigation Of Already Proven Election Fraud

Image by GA AG Website

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

CDMedia via The Georgia Record has launched an inquiry with the office of GA Attorney General Chris Carr as to the existence of any ongoing investigation into the proven election fraud in the ‘audit’ conducted by the GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger after the Nov 3rd U.S. general election.

Upon research into data obtained via the lawsuit by VoterGA.org against Fulton County, GA, in an attempt to inspect the approximately 147,000 ‘mail-in’ ballots counted last November, which led to Joe Biden occupying The White House, and two suspect Democrat Senate seats in D.C, multiple fraudulent tally sheets were made public where all votes were criminally given to Joe Biden in the batches, an impossibility.

The VoterGA team found 7 falsified audit tally sheets containing fabricated vote totals for their respective batches. For example, a batch containing 60 ballot images for Joe Biden, 50 for Donald Trump was reported as 100 for Biden and 0 for Trump. The 7 batches of ballot images with 554 votes for Joe Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump and 11 votes for Jo Jorgenson had tally sheets in the audit falsified to show 850 votes for Biden, 0 votes for Trump and 0 votes for Jorgenson, wrote VoterGA on their website.

A copy of one of the fraudulent tally sheets is in the image below. You can see all of the evidence on the PDF tab below:

CDMedia simply wants to know if this is being investigated at all for criminal activity by the GA Attorney General.

We have inquired directly to the AG’s office and have been told we ‘will get a call back’.

If we do ‘get a call back’, we’ll let you know.

SHARPIEGATE UPDATE: More Americans from Across the Country Were Forced to Vote Using a Sharpie

SHARPIEGATE UPDATE: More Americans from Across the Country Were Forced to Vote Using a Sharpie

The day after the 2020 Election there was controversy over the use of sharpies in some Arizona locations.  Now we know this occurred across the nation.
In mid-July Sharpiegate was back in the news:
BOOM! Arizona Senate Audit Team CAUGHT THEM! Ballots were on WRONG PAPER STOCK — Supports the SHARPIEGATE SCANDAL! (VIDEO)

After this post, a number of individuals shared that they too were handed a sharpie when voting in the 2020 Election.  These messages came from all across the country: Chicago; Sun City, AZ; Upland, CA; San Diego, CA; Fountain, CA; Idaho; Nevada; and, Pennsylvania.
We shared this as well.
Sharpiegate Scandal Sees New Life – Readers Share that Sharpies Were Used Across the Country

Then we uncovered exactly how sharpies were used in the 2020 Election:
SHARPIE-GATE EXPLAINED: It Now Appears Sharpies Were Provided in Certain Precincts to Disqualify Trump Votes in 2020 Election (VIDEO)

We’ve since received emails from more readers who shared that they too received sharpies to vote with on Election Day:
Hello, my name is xxxx and I live in xxxx Pennsylvania.  When I voted in November we were given black sharpies which means none of our votes were counted correctly or if they ever counted at all. I think this should be investigated to see how many other Counties had the same problem.
SHARPIE PENS were used in Chicago
Went to vote on election day  and was told TOUCH PAD machines were inoperable – a first . Ballot bled. Biden outdid 1st Obama by 44k votes altho city population dropped 250k in intervening years – a great portion of that loss by black community. No way. I’m ex election judge , board investigator and expert court witness on canvassing. Nothing that happened election day nationally happened without Chicago input and knowledge. Nothing. Indeed at about 26 min. mark of Lindell documentary Eric Commer answered that VPN was ( prior to election ) being experimented on only here. Brings into question Lightfart’s election. Dominion in use city and county. Soon after election Chicago board exec. director – once indicted in San Diego – retired after 29 years as Chicago’s chief magician. Help us please.
We were issued sharpie markers to use at the polling place on 11/3/2020 located at xxxx, Mesa, AZ.
How many votes across the nation were stolen or discarded due to the sharpiegate phenomenon?

Judicial Watch: CDC Coordinated with Facebook On COVID Messaging and ‘Misinformation’; CDC Received Over $3.5 Million in Free Advertising from Social Media Companies

Judicial Watch: CDC Coordinated with Facebook On COVID Messaging and ‘Misinformation’; CDC Received Over $3.5 Million in Free Advertising from Social Media Companies

July 28, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it received 2,469 pages of new documents from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which reveal that Facebook coordinated closely with the CDC to control the COVID narrative and “misinformation” and that over $3.5 million in free advertising given to the CDC by social media companies. 
These new documents were received in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health of Human Services (No. 1:21-cv-00625)) lawsuit for: 
Any and all records of communication between CDC officials and/or employees and employees, agents, and/or representatives of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube concerning, regarding, or relating to COVID-19 related content on company platforms.  Such records include, but are not limited to, any advice or instructions issued on disinformation re COVID-19.   
The documents show collusion between the CDC and Big Tech on Covid-19 message and misinformation: 

In an email exchange beginning on January 26, 2020 with the subject, “Data for Good | CDC intros,” a Facebook representative sends the “FB coronavirus narrative” to the CDC. 

It states the following: 
Facebook is taking a three pronged approached to the global response for the coronavirus: 
Limit misinformation and other harmful content on our platforms.  Our third-party fact-checkers have been rating information on this topic as false, including the AP, Politifact, AFP Hong Kong, Rapple IQ in the Philippines. As a result, we show people who come across that false content accurate information from our fact-checking partners and strong warning labels.  We also send notifications to people who already shared this content alerting them that it’s been fact checked. 
Provide accurate and helpful information on our platforms t our partners. Partners are already using our platforms to share accurate information about the situation, including ono Pages.  We have also provided ad credits to the World Health Organization and the Philippines’ Department of Health to enable them to run coronavirus education campaigns on Facebook in-region, which we will continue to do.  We’re continuing to explore additional steps we can take, including dedicated information modules on relevant search queries and improved search ranking.  
Empower partners with data tools. We’re sharing aggregated mobility data and high resolution density maps with various partners (e.g., National Tsinghua University (Taiwan); Harvard School oof Public Health) to help inform forecasting models for the spread of the virus as part of our broader Data for Good program.  We’re exploring doing this with a broader set of partners (e.g., WHO, US CDC) and also helping partners understand how people are talking about the issue online through tools like Crowdtangle to inform their efforts.   
This email exchange continues on showing more coordination on messaging between the CDC and Facebook.     

The CDC was given over $3.5 million of free advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. 

In a March 8, 2020 email, a Facebook representative sends four ad credits totaling $2 million to the CDC for the purpose of supporting “messaging related to coronavirus.”  

On March 14, 2020, then-CDC Chief Operating Officer and Chief Strategy Officer Sherri Berger emails Facebook to thank them for the $2 million. 
“On behalf of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and by the authority delegated to me through Section 231 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. Section 238), as amended, thank you for Facebook’s non-monetary gift of advertising credited with an estimated value of $2,000,000.  The gift will be used by CDC’s COVID-19 response to support dissemination of critical public health messaging.  Thank you!”   

In an email exchange between August 10-11, 2020, the CDC’s Sherri Berger emails Facebook again to thank them for another $1 million in ad credits with a similar message to that on March 14, except she adds: “This gift will be used by the CDC’s COVID-19 response to distribute scientifically accurate data, guidance and risk communication information on COVID-19 to a broader audience.”  In an email exchange on August 25, 2020, Facebook makes CDC officials aware that of their recent gift of $1 million in ad credits, $529,207.42 remain.  
In a heavily redacted email exchange on March 17, 2020, a Twitter official offers the CDC advertising in the form of Twitter’s Promoted Trend and Promoted Spotlight Trend, which have approximate values given as $75,000 and $150,000.
In an email exchange beginning March 16, 2020, a Google representative offers the CDC free video advertising on YouTube.  In the exchange, they claim to not be able to assign a dollar value to this advertising.The CDC’s official acceptance document for this advertising, which they value at $0, Sherri Berger states:I understand that Google LLC may be a vendor and/or lobbyist employed and that Google LLC’s employees may be registered lobbyists.  Providing the gift will not prevent Google LLC or its affiliates from supplying products of services to CDC in the future; CDC, however, is under no obligation to accept future services from Google LLC or its affiliates.
In a February 27, 2020 email, a Facebook representative offers to put CDC officials in contact with WhatsApp in order to establish auto-responses to FAQs about coronavirus in that communications platform.  

“These documents show that Facebook and the CDC are joined at the hip on managing the ever-changing Covid-19 ‘narrative’ – which includes censorship of alleged ‘misinformation’,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Arizona Audit Champion Wendy Rogers Endorses Jarome Bell for Congress in VA-2

Arizona Audit Champion Wendy Rogers Endorses Jarome Bell for Congress in VA-2

Arizona Senator Wendy Rogers announced over Twitter that she has endorsed Jarome Bell for Congress in Virginia’s 2nd District, highlighting Bell’s military service, early support of the Arizona election audit, and support for tight immigration controls in making her announcement.
Senator Rogers, who has helped lead national efforts in favor of 2020 election audits and was at the center of the successful effort to audit the vote in Arizona, called Bell a patriot who has what it takes to defeat a radical Democrat incumbent in a swing district.

Bell’s district is one of several across the country that strategists for both parties have declared a national bellwether in 2022 as so-called “moderate” Democrat incumbent Elaine Luria has been repeatedly exposed to the district’s voters as a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi’s agenda.
Like Rogers in Arizona, Bell has taken on a leading role in the fight for election integrity in Virginia, calling on the state to hold a forensic audit of their own after documented cases of extreme irregularities in Virginia’s vote tallies were exposed to the public. Bell has also filed suit in federal court against tech giant Facebook, alleging that the left-wing corporation engages in anti-Christian censorship and electioneering on behalf of the Democrat Party.
“I endorse patriot @JaromeBellVA,” Rogers posted to Twitter. “Jarome Is a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer with 27 years of service who is running for Congress in a swing district in Virginia against a radical Democrat. We only need 5 seats to take back the House of Representatives.”

“He is at the forefront of fighting for our freedom,” Rogers’ Twitter thread continued. “I see him constantly taking the fight to the enemies of this country and he does not back down. He also supports election integrity (forensic audits) and an immigration moratorium,” she wrote. “When others mocked the Arizona audit – Jarome supported us. Jarome has my endorsement 100%. I encourage all patriots to donate to his campaign and to support him in his election.”

Arizona Senate seeks records on Maricopa audit from Hobbs

Arizona Senate seeks records on Maricopa audit from Hobbs

by Daniel Chaitin, Deputy News Editor |  | July 27, 2021

The Arizona Senate is asking for documents from Katie Hobbs, Arizona’s Democratic secretary of state, related to the GOP-led chamber’s audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County.
Senate President Karen Fann sent a public records request for communications in which Hobbs, a critic of the audit, discussed the partisan review and relevant litigation. However, the rationale behind the demand is unclear.
“I can’t disclose what we’re looking for at this time,” Fann told Capitol Media Services.
Hobbs, now a candidate for Arizona governor, is reviewing the request, according to her office.
“At this point, it appears to be the kind of nebulous fishing expedition that we’ve come to expect from the Senate president,” said Hobbs’s aide Murphy Hebert, who also noted it was “ironic” that such a request was made considering the Arizona Senate is fighting public records requests related to the audit.
The news on Tuesday comes one day after the Arizona Senate issued fresh subpoenas to Maricopa County officials and Dominion Voting Systems, both of which have signaled they intend to fight the requests.
Maricopa County officials announced last month voting machines subpoenaed for the audit would be removed from service after Hobbs threatened to decertify the equipment, citing concerns with the methods of Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based firm hired to lead the review.
After courts rejected several lawsuits challenging the 2020 results in Arizona and other states Donald Trump lost, the former president and his allies have turned their attention to the GOP-led Arizona Senate audit in Maricopa County, touting it as an inspection that could support their claims of widespread fraud or irregularities.
President Joe Biden won Arizona and its 11 electoral votes by more than 10,000 votes out of the 3.3 million across the state. His lead of roughly 2 percentage points was due partly to his advantage in Maricopa County, where the Democrat scored nearly 45,000 more votes than Trump among roughly 2.1 million ballots cast.
CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
Maricopa County officials previously authorized two election machine audits that found no irregularities in the county’s 2020 election. There was also a recount of a sample of ballots that did not turn up any problems.
Officials affiliated with the Arizona Senate’s audit predict a report on its findings will be released later this summer.

Alveda King Asks SCOTUS to Overturn Roe: Planned Parenthood Targets Black Babies in Abortions

Alveda King Asks SCOTUS to Overturn Roe: Planned Parenthood Targets Black Babies in Abortions

Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief on behalf of a diverse group of organizations, churches, religious leaders, and individuals, including 70,000 African American and Hispanic churches and millions of African Americans and Hispanic Americans across the United States, who are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade because legalized abortion is unconstitutional, violates the right to life, and supports racist eugenics.
Liberty Counsel represents Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Chairman Dean Nelson and the Frederick Douglass Foundation; Rev. Alveda King, the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Speak for Life; the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas; Bishop Joseph Edward Strickland; Deacon Keith Fournier, Esq., General Counsel for the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas; and the Common Good Foundation. This broad group of African Americans, Hispanics, Roman Catholics, and Protestants join together in support of Mississippi requesting the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the 1973 abortion opinion of Roe v. Wade and its subsequent abortion cases.
Last May, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear Dobbs, MS Health Officer, et al. v Jackson Women’s Health, et al., which is asking the Justices to reexamine the viability standard decided in Roe v. Wade from 1973, Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey in 1992, and Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt in 2016. Mississippi’s attorney general has asked the High Court to overturn the landmark abortion decision Roe v. Wade and argued that the practice shouldn’t be considered a constitutional right. The case is expected to be argued when the Supreme Court’s term starts in October, and a decision is likely to come by June of 2022.
The Mississippi law was previously blocked by a federal judge shortly after its passage, and the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that decision last year, citing the precedent set by Roe v Wade. Under existing Supreme Court precedent, states may not ban abortions that occur prior to fetal viability, generally around 22 weeks or later. However, Liberty Counsel’s amicus brief in Jackson v. Dobbs emphasizes the fact that the lower courts failed to contemplate the racist and eugenic history of the abortion movement and that abortion is largely a minority epidemic.

Starting with Charles Darwin, contraception and abortion were used to accomplish his racist and white supremacist ideology and eugenic theories. In his book, The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. (emphasis added), the full title clearly sets forth his racist ideology to eliminate certain races and people.
In Austin Anderson’s 2016 article, “The Dark Side of Darwinism,” he discusses Darwin’s second book, The Descent of Man, in which Darwin describes “Australians, Mongolians, Africans, Indians, South Americans, Polynesians, and even Eskimos as ‘savages.’ It becomes clear that Darwin considers every population that is not white and European to be savage and that white people are more intelligent and moral. In fact, not only did Darwin believe in white supremacy but that white people are further evolved. This purported superiority justified to Darwin the extermination of these inferior races. Darwin wrote that as white Europeans ‘exterminate and replace’ the world’s ‘savage races,’ and as great apes go extinct, the gap between civilized man and his closest evolutionary ancestor will widen. In fact, the gap will eventually be between civilized man ‘and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.’”
Therefore, “Darwin’s theory claims that Africans and certain Australians are more closely related to apes than Europeans and blacks fall somewhere in between. In his racist thinking, Darwin believed modern human society should be restricted only to white Europeans, with all other races viewed as sub-human.”
In the infamous 1927 case of Buck v. Bell, the Supreme Court shamefully adopted this racist eugenic ideology promoted by Social Darwinists. In Buck, the High Court approved the compulsory sterilization of an allegedly “feeble minded” woman who had been falsely adjudged “the probable potential parent of socially inadequate offspring.” In a short opinion, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., joined by seven other Justices, issued an opinion applying Social Darwinism to uphold the Virginia law as a means to “prevent” society from being “swamped with incompetence.” According to this Court:
“It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”Ibid. (citation omitted) (emphasis added).
The Buck decision had a profound impact on the eugenics movement. Within five years, 28 states had adopted compulsory sterilization laws; and between 1907 and 1983, more than 60,000 people were involuntarily sterilized.
When keeping certain “undesirable” child-bearing people in sanitariums became too expensive, the eugenics movement turned to contraception to accomplish the same purpose.
Enter Margret Sanger, who opened contraception clinics in minority neighborhoods. Fueled by the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, Sanger then planted abortion facilities in black and brown neighborhoods to eliminate these races and carry on its racist eugenic objectives. Planned Parenthood—the largest abortion provider in the United States—has continued its founder Margaret Sanger’s legacy of eliminating or preventing unborn children based on race, sex, and disability. Sanger shared the same worldview of eugenics as Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler, and she saw abortion as a tool to help accomplish population control and to weed out the “undesirable” races and people to evolve a better human race. She argued that eugenics was “the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”
Sanger stated, “More children from the fit and less from the unfit. That is the chief aim of birth control,” and “Superman is the aim of Birth Control.” She once gave a talk to the KKK and helped promote the “Negro Project.” In her own words, “[Birth control] means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”
In a letter to Clarence Gable in 1939, Sanger wrote: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Abortion-induced deaths of the unborn in the black community are 69 times higher than HIV deaths, 31 times higher than (all other) homicides, 3.6 times higher than cancer-related deaths, and 3.5 times higher than deaths caused by heart disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 117,626 black children were killed by surgical abortion in the U.S. in 2018, and these deaths accounted for 33.6 percent of the total abortions that year.
Planned Parenthood commits 40 percent of abortions in the United States, which includes death by abortion of an estimated 247 black babies per day. In Mississippi alone, 3,005 abortions were reported in 2018. Of those abortions, 72 percent were performed on black women, compared to just 24 percent on Caucasian women and 4 percent of other races.  In fact, the Charlotte Lozier Institute estimates that the black abortion rate in Mississippi is more than three-and-a-half times the abortion rate for Caucasian women.
In one study, “Perceiving and Addressing the Pervasive Racial Disparity in Abortion,” authored by researchers with the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), using abortion reporting data from the CDC, found that, despite incomplete reporting — particularly from states with large populations of minority women that perform significant numbers of abortions — “black women have been experiencing abortions at a rate nearly four times that of white women for more than 30 years…The evidence is clear that for many decades black children in the United States have not had, and do not have today, an equal opportunity to survive until birth,” the researchers said.
Planned Parenthood has now intentionally located 86 percent of its abortion facilities in or near minority neighborhoods in the 25 U.S. counties with the most abortions. These 25 counties contain 19 percent of the U.S. population including 28 percent of the black population and 37 percent of the Hispanic/Latino population. In 12 of these counties, blacks and Hispanics/Latinos are more than 50 percent of the population. In contrast, blacks are only 12.6 percent of the U.S. population, and Hispanics and Latinos are 16.3 percent. Planned Parenthood’s largest abortion facility in America is situated in the middle of a black and Hispanic neighborhood within walking distance of a nearby school.
The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said: “[A]t the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding of abortion.”
In 2019, Justice Clarence Thomas also confirmed Planned Parenthood’s eugenic history in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. Justice Thomas wrote in his concurring opinion, “The use of abortion to achieve eugenic goals is not merely hypothetical. The foundations for legalizing abortion in America were laid during the early 20th-century birth-control movement. That movement developed alongside the American eugenics movement. And significantly, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger recognized the eugenic potential of her cause. She emphasized and embraced the notion that birth control ‘opens the way to the eugenicist.’”
Justice Thomas also noted that Planned Parenthood has its roots in the eugenics movement when he wrote: “But Sanger’s arguments about the eugenic value of birth control in securing ‘the elimination of the unfit,’ … apply with even greater force to abortion, making it significantly more effective as a tool of eugenics. Whereas Sanger believed that birth control could prevent ‘unfit’ people from reproducing, abortion can prevent them from being born in the first place. Many eugenicists therefore supported legalizing abortion, and abortion advocates—including future Planned Parenthood President Alan Guttmacher— endorsed the use of abortion for eugenic reasons.”
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear this Mississippi case is a positive step toward overturning the tragic abortion decision of Roe v. Wade. Abortion is rooted in racism and eugenics to eliminate certain races and people. Planned Parenthood continues Margaret Sanger’s legacy of eliminating unborn children based on their race. The dark racist eugenic history of the Supreme Court must end. The High Court must overturn its shameful abortion decisions. Our clients call upon the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and stop this racist genocide.”

Hundreds of State Lawmakers Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Hundreds of State Lawmakers Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

More than 300 lawmakers across the country are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect unborn babies again.
The Center Square reports they recently signed onto an amicus brief supporting a Mississippi pro-life law that is being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices are scheduled to hear the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in October.
“We’re hoping to accomplish protecting life within our respective states as best as possible,” Michigan lawyer Jacob Weaver told the news outlet. “Roe v. Wade was abundantly unconstitutional. It’s now clear that it’s life in the womb, not potential life.”
Weaver worked with a coalition of pro-life organizations and lawyers to write the brief and garner support from state lawmakers. The brief has the signatures of more than 300 lawmakers in 35 states, according to the report.

Weaver said many states regulate other “intimate and personal” medical decisions, and the Supreme Court should allow states to do the same with abortion.
“We argue this depoliticize the court and that it returns states to their rightful place in the constitutional scheme,” he said.
In May, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. At the center of the case is “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.”
Current legal precedent focuses on viability. In Roe and later Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the Supreme Court prohibited states from banning abortions before an unborn baby is viable. As a result, the U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
But viability is a moving line. Around the time of Roe v. Wade, babies were considered to be viable at about 28 weeks of pregnancy, but as medicine advanced, the line moved back to 24 weeks and now is about 22 weeks.
For years, many states have tried to challenge the arbitrary “viability” precedent, passing laws to ban abortions completely or at various stages of pregnancy.
After the Supreme Court agreed to hear the Mississippi case, many pro-life leaders expressed hope that the justices will consider new evidence that unborn babies can feel pain and medical advances that are pushing viability back earlier and earlier in pregnancy.
Last week, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch filed her argument to the high court, urging it to allow states to protect unborn babies again.
“The only workable approach to accommodating the competing interests here is to return the matter to ‘legislators, not judges,’” Fitch wrote. “…The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
A new AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found that a strong majority of Americans believe states should be allowed to ban abortions after the first trimester. According to the poll, 65 percent said most or all second-trimester abortions should be illegal; the number increased to 80 percent in the third trimester.

Planned Parenthood is So Obsessed With Killing Babies It Made Its President Say “Abortion” in Every Interview

Planned Parenthood is So Obsessed With Killing Babies It Made Its President Say “Abortion” in Every Interview

Leana Wen apparently believed Planned Parenthood’s talking points about being a “trusted” healthcare provider and abortion being just a small part of what it does when she took up the role as CEO of the abortion chain in 2018.
But she quickly learned the truth: Aborting unborn babies is Planned Parenthood’s “core mission.”
In her new book “Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health,” Wen described the criticism she received for focusing more on health care than abortions and politics during her eight months as CEO of Planned Parenthood, Insider reports.
Though Wen supports abortion, she said she thought she could create more public support for Planned Parenthood by emphasizing and expanding its non-controversial healthcare services – something she said many state affiliates agreed with her about.
So, during her first interview as CEO, that is what she did. Speaking with “The View” on ABC, Wen discussed the importance of women’s health care, birth control, pap smears, cancer screenings and other services, according to the report. Afterward, she thought she did well.

Then, she heard from upper level leadership.
According to her book, one board member texted her, “Next time, make sure you talk about abortion.”
“You need to talk about abortion at every media interview,” another leader said. “You’re the president of Planned Parenthood. People expect that from you.”
“Not saying ‘abortion’ sounds as if you’re ashamed of it,” a third Planned Parenthood leader told her.
“If we don’t talk about abortion openly, loudly and proudly, as a positive moral good, then we are further stigmatizing it and the people who need it,” yet another said to Wen.
Here’s more from the report:

Wen, who is pro-choice, took the stance that she and the organization should advocate for all reproductive health services, like birth control and sex ed, which could reach more people and help reduce the need for abortions.
She believed using “pro-abortion” language alienated people whose decision to get one was painful. And, she said, most Americans have complicated, nuanced views on abortion. She believed Planned Parenthood should meet them where they are, she thought.

Eventually, Wen said the board told her to change or leave, and she decided to leave. But while Wen was working with her lawyers on finalizing her departure – and grieving a recent miscarriage, the board voted to fire her instead. Wen said she learned about the vote from the New York Times.
Later, the New York Times reported on a leaked letter from Wen to the Planned Parenthood board of directors in which she accused them of trying to “buy [her] silence” by withholding her severance package as “ransom” to get her to sign a confidentiality agreement. Planned Parenthood said Wen’s accusations were “simply untrue.”
The board quickly replaced Wen with one of its own: Alexis McGill Johnson, a long-time board member with close ties to Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and others powerful elites. Her background is in politics.
Though Wen received little compassion or understanding from Planned Parenthood leadership, she said she still has “deep empathy” for its staff who “put themselves on the line for its mission,” according to Insider.
But she is far from alone in her complaints. A number of former Planned Parenthood employees have left the abortion chain complaining about its focus on abortion, money and power, not women’s healthcare.
The billion-dollar abortion chain aborts more unborn babies than any other group in the U.S. Its latest annual report, which is publicly available online, shows more than 354,000 abortions, about 40 percent of all abortions in the U.S.
Meanwhile, the same report showed that many of Planned Parenthood’s actual health services continue to decline. It provided less contraception, sterilizations, cancer screenings, adoption referrals and other women’s health services than the previous year, mirroring a continued downward trend.
Its patient numbers also have been dropping steadily over the past decade amid numerous reports of alleged unethical and illegal activities by Planned Parenthood, including selling aborted baby body parts, botching abortions that killed women, covering up the sexual abuse of minors, discriminating against pregnant and racial minority employees, exploiting young girls by selling cross-sex hormones and more.

The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division after Catenacci, a white male, emailed Lightfoot’s office requesting a one-on-one interview with the mayor and the office failed to reply to the request or Catenacci’s two additional follow-up emails (Catenacci et al v. Lightfoot (No. 1:21-cv-02852)).   
“Mayor Lightfoot discriminated against journalists based on their race,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch has repeatedly requested that Lightfoot sign a consent decree agreeing not to use race-based criteria for interview requests for the remainder of her time in office. Not only did her lawyers ignore these requests, in a recent interview, an unrepentant Lightfoot told a New York Times writer, ‘I would absolutely do it again. I’m unapologetic about it because it spurred a very important conversation, a conversation that needed to happen, that should have happened a long time ago’” 
“I cannot believe that Mayor Lightfoot told the New York Times reporter that she would absolutely discriminate against reporters again based on their race,” said Thomas Catenacci. “If she isn’t stopped, what’s next?” 
“A policy of granting interviews based on the color of a reporter’s skin isn’t merely discriminatory, it undercuts the foundational principles of freedom of the press,” said DCNF acting editor in chief Thomas Phippen. “That Mayor Lightfoot is ‘unapologetic’ about her policy speaks volumes.” 
In May, Lightfoot’s office informed multiple reporters that she would grant one-on-one interviews, “only to Black or Brown journalists.” The next day, the mayor released a letter doubling down on her discriminatory policy.   
The amended complaint explains: 
On May 18, 2021, a Chicago reporter tweeted that Mayor Lightfoot’s spokesperson informed her that the mayor “is granting 1 on 1 interviews – only to Black or Brown journalists.” Mayor Lightfoot subsequently released a letter stating, “By now, you have heard the news that on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of my inauguration as Mayor of this great City, I will be exclusively providing one-on-one interviews with journalists of color.” Neither Mayor Lightfoot nor her spokesperson suggested that the mayor’s new, race-based interview policy was not permanent or identified any time limit on how long the mayor intended to use race-based criteria for granting interview requests. 
Judicial Watch points out that Lightfoot’s communications director testified that the mayor used race-based criteria for granting interview requests for two days, May 19 and 20, and did not grant any interview requests to White reporters. Moreover, the mayor’s office has yet to respond to Catenacci’s request nor has the mayor agreed to an interview with him.   
Mayor Lightfoot’s response to the lawsuit is due by August 2, 2021. 
Christine Svenson of Svenson Law Offices in Palatine, Illinois, is assisting Judicial Watch with the lawsuit.

Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear “Jesus Loves Me” Mask

Mom Files Lawsuit After Teacher Tells Third Grader She Can’t Wear “Jesus Loves Me” Mask

Mississippi mother Jennifer Booth was surprised when her 9-year-old daughter, Lydia, came home from school and told her that she was not allowed to wear her “Jesus Loves Me” face mask anymore.
Thinking her daughter’s teacher might simply have been having a bad day, Booth sent Lydia back to school with her mask. Again, the third grader was told she was not allowed to wear the mask at school.
“The principal calls me and she’s like, ‘We’re going to have to have Lydia swap her mask out,’” Booth recounts, adding that the principal said it was against school policy “to have religious symbols or gestures on her mask.” But upon inspecting the school handbook with the principal, Booth says, the only policy the principal could point to referred to “drug culture, profanity, [and] obscenities.”
Booth continued to contact leaders of the Simpson County School District asking for an explanation and was eventually sent the district’s COVID-19 policy. But after a little investigation, Booth discovered that the policy she received had been modified less than an hour before it was emailed to her to include language barring students from wearing masks expressing religious views.
Booth has filed a lawsuit against the school district with Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal organization.
The mom says she chose to take legal action to protect her “kids, my grandkids, and everybody else’s kids, because this year is the mask, next year is the T-shirt, eventually you can’t say Jesus’ name in school.”
Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter. Follow @LifeNewsHQ
Booth and Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer Tyson Langhofer join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to tell this story and discuss why they are taking a stand for religious liberty in Mississippi.
Also on today’s show, we read your letters to the editor and share a good news story about a father and son who used their knowledge of the sea to find and rescue a man overboard off the coast of North Carolina.
Enjoy the show!

Virginia Allen: I am so pleased to welcome to the show Mississippi mother Jennifer Booth, as well as Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Tyson Langhofer. Thank you all so much for being here.
Jennifer Booth: Thank you for having us.
Tyson Langhofer: So glad to be here.
Allen: Jennifer, let’s start with you. This story that we’re sharing today centers around the topic of religious freedom and expression, freedom of speech. And it all started, interestingly enough, with a face mask that read, “Jesus Loves Me.” Let’s dive right in and share a little bit about your daughter. Your daughter is 9 years old. Is that right?
Booth: Yes. She’s 9 years old.
Allen: Tell us a little bit about her and where she goes to school and share a little bit about your community, if you will.
Booth: She’s 9 years old. She’s going to fourth grade this year. She’s a rule follower. She was class favorite one year and superintendent scholar, straight-A student. In fact, when all this happened, that same day, she had received Student of the Month. I mean, she’s a really good student.
We live in a small community in Braxton, Mississippi, really small, like 200. I don’t even think it’s actually considered a city. I think it’s considered like a town or a village because of how small it is. Everybody knows everybody. Everybody knows your grandma, where you grew up. They know where you live. So really small, tight-knit community in our area.
Allen: Lydia is your oldest, that’s right?
Booth: She’s actually the middle child. I have a 17-year-old who’s a senior this year in high school. And I have a 6-year-old son who is a first grader this year.
Allen: Oh, that’s so fun. Lydia was getting ready to go back to school, and during the pandemic, of course, when kids were going back, they had to wear face masks. And so you were talking with Lydia about this, and she decided that she wanted a very special face mask. Tell us about that.
Booth: Well, it was already kind of bad that they were going to have to wear masks to begin with. Kind of takes away the personal expressions with their friends and they’re going to have the distance.
I wanted to get them a special mask made, however they wanted it, like pick out your colors, what kind of designs do you want? And Lydia, she wanted something with Jesus on it.
We were thinking about different things to put on there. I was like, “Well, what about ‘Jesus Loves Me’?” And she was like, “Yes, that’s perfect.” So one of our good friends, she made it for her. That’s where we got it from.
Allen: That’s so great. So, she gets the mask. It reads, “Jesus Loves Me.” I’ve seen a picture of it. It’s a black mask, and in pink letters, that “Jesus Loves Me.” So she actually wore the mask to school for a little while, before there was any issues, right?
Booth: Yes. She had wore it for two or three months prior without any issue. And then all of a sudden, one day, a computer lab teacher, she was like, “You can’t wear that.” She’s like, “It has words on it.” She said, “You can’t wear that.”
And Lydia got in the car that evening, she said, “Mama,” she said, “I can’t wear this mask because of the words on it.” And I was like, “No.” I was like, “There’s no way.” Because I see teachers and children alike wearing words on their mask of all kinds. I was like, “There’s no way that you can’t wear this.”
So I reached out to some friends, text them, text some people that actually work at the school, trying to see if there was anything to this. Anyways, they didn’t ever hear of that rule either. So I sent her back with it, thinking maybe that Jesus was just kind of hitting a nerve or something with that teacher that day. I was like, well, maybe she was a little convicted.Allen: So this is a public school, but still, under our free speech, freedom of religion, students, even in public schools, are still allowed to express their faith. Tyson Langhofer, you’re an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom. You’re involved in this case. Share just a little bit from that perspective, the rights that students have even in public schools to still have that free expression.
Langhofer: Sure. So, the Supreme Court’s made very clear on a number of occasions that students and teachers don’t shed their constitutional freedoms when they cross the schoolhouse gates. And that’s very clear.
Now, obviously, there are certain types of rules when you’re in a school setting—that students aren’t allowed to stand on their desk and scream to disrupt the educational process. But if the school allows individuals to express themselves through words on their shirts or words on their masks or other types of communication messages, they cannot discriminate against religious speech, if they allow others to express secular messages in similar manners.
Allen: Thank you. All right. So Jennifer, let’s get back to your story a little bit, your and your daughter Lydia’s story. She wears the mask that says, “Jesus Loves Me,” to school. One of the teachers—after wearing it for several months—says, “You can’t wear that.” Your assumption is, “That teacher must’ve been having a bad day. I’m going to send my daughter back to school with that mask.” So, Lydia goes back to school with the mask. What happens next?
Booth: That morning, the principal calls me and she’s like, “We’re going to have to have Lydia swap her mask out. And she said, “It is against our policy for her to have religious symbols or gestures on her mask.”
And I was like, “Really?” I was like, “You’re going to need to show me that in your handbook, because I’ve looked through it. I’ve looked through everything,” I was like, “And I don’t see it.”
So we literally go hand-in-hand through the handbook, she says like, “I know it’s in here somewhere.” And she’s flipping through, and she gets to the dress code, which you would assume would be the policy. The only thing she can point me to is like the drug culture, profanity, obscenities.
And I was like, “I’m sorry, but Jesus isn’t in these categories, and you’re going to have to give me a solid policy. You can’t just decide you’re going to censor Lydia.” So she was like, “Well, I’m going to get back with the district office, because I know it’s in there.”
Continue, I’m really upset. I’m calling my husband. He’s making some phone calls and digging even deeper into the policies. I’m looking through emails. I’m like, “There’s no way that this is happening. You’re just in shock,” because we’re in the Bible Belt. It’s just not something that you expect. I mean, you see it on media, but you’re like, “That ain’t ever going to happen here. Not here.”
I actually see the quite opposite in their own handbook where they recognize the 2016 Mississippi Student Religious Freedom Act, which is our state-level law that protects students’ freedom of speech as far as expressing their religious view in their work or in anything, so long as they’re not being disruptive about it. And then on the very next page, they have where they recognize the students’ freedom of speech.
So here in their policy, they have the recognition of their state law and the federal law that’s protecting her. And so I emailed them, and I emailed the principal and the superintendent, and then I CC her main teacher, just to keep her in the loop.
I’m just like, “Hey, y’all need to give her her mask back. And you need to apologize, because she didn’t do anything wrong in this case.” The principal emails back, she’s like, “I’m forwarding this to district office.” I’m like, “Well, district office was already on there, but OK.”
So I pick up Lydia and she is still in the replacement mask. She has a black mask with a panda bear on it. And I’m sitting here thinking, “Well, that could be offensive, because isn’t it from China?”
Anyways, the next day was a virtual day for us, and complete silence from the school. Never heard back from the district office. Never heard back from the principal. And so, I was recommended to reach out to the assistant superintendent at that time. So I shot him an email, that way I could have my clear thought all lined up.
And I just asked him, “Y’all are saying my child wasn’t singled out, but how often do your administrators go hunting down a 9-year-old, looking for a specific room, a specific child with a specific mask that says, ‘Jesus Loves Me’ on it?” I was like, “That’s pretty singled out to me.”
And I told them how they were directly violating her rights and that they actually show that they recognize those rights in that policy, and there was nothing that said that she couldn’t have words on her mask. And there was nothing that said that she couldn’t have religious things on her mask, even if it was, it shouldn’t be a problem. It was something you would have recognized. Like, what is this? I’ve never heard of this.
Anyways, he calls me, and he admits to me on that phone call that it was not in the handbook and it was not policy. And I’m like, “Duh! I know this.” At this point, I’m thinking I might know it a little bit better than they do.
He tells me that it’s in the restart plan, which was some COVID measures that were sent out at the beginning of the school year to lay out the bus plan, where they would be wearing masks and how often, and the social distancing, just how everything would work and the schedules. So he said it was on the district page, but it was no longer up there, so he was going to email me a copy. I was like, “OK.”
So he emails me a copy of the restart plan. The restart plan, when I scroll down to the mask area, it has a verbiage for no political, religious, obscenity, sexual gestures, or words on the mask.
And I was like, “There’s no way that I missed this.” Especially with the year, with COVID, you’re paying extra special attention to the masking, because I wanted to know how often they were going to be wearing it and where are they going to get breaks and different things like that. I was like, “There’s no way.”
And I really felt like God was just like, “Jennifer, there’s more to this.” He was like, “Let’s see if the document that he said that was originally posted is still archived on the district site.” Sometimes when you take something down—like the person that’s controlling the website will kind of put it not on the forefront, but it’ll still be there.
Allen: On the backend?
Booth: Yeah. When I looked, it was there. And so I pulled it up and I’m looking at the one that he sent me and the one that was originally posted at the beginning of the school year, and I scroll down, and that verbiage isn’t there. I’m like, “What?” I was like, I knew I didn’t see it, but this is crazy. Like, why is that there now?
Allen: You’re looking at these documents and they’re two different documents.
Booth: Yeah. And that was the only difference, was the verbiage about the type of mask that they could wear. And then God’s like, “OK, there’s more to this, Jennifer.”
At that point, I was like, there’s data that’s associated to a document when you create it, when you modify it, and when you send it to somebody. I actually make my living in IT for a local hospital. And so we kind of think of things a little different. It’s really easy to get it, but people don’t think about it.
So I went and I looked at the metadata for the document that he had sent me. And what it tells you is, it tells you the application they used, they used PowerPoint 2016. His license was tied to his name, so it had his name on there. And then it showed the date and the time that he had modified it, which was 30 minutes before he called me.
So if you can imagine the devastation that you’re like, what kind of lengths would these people go to? In this situation, it’s insane to think.
Allen: That’s a lot of shock in that moment, seeing how they are going to great lengths. What was running through your head in that moment when you realized it appears like they modify this document specifically, just to send it to me, so that they could get themselves maybe out of hot water?
Booth: Yeah. And it’s really just devastating. And you’re thinking, “OK, these people are in charge of my child. They are supposed to be protecting my child whenever I can’t be there.” They’re supposed to be role models, and here they are, not only are they violating the rights they’re supposed to be teaching her at the school, but there’s a complete lack of integrity. They’re not taking responsibility and showing my child the way that an adult should act, and the way that I expect my children to act.
I have a million things going through my head. I’m like, “OK, Lord, what else do you have?” I’m like, “Do I need to take my kid out of school and homeschool them?” Because now I’m worried if they will go to that extent, what else will they do? Is my child safe? Are they going to retaliate against my child now?
I went to church that night crying, because it was Wednesday night. I was telling my church family about it. And my pastor was like, “Hold on a minute.” So he texts our local Southern Baptist Association. It’s a group of pastors and leaders in the church. And one of them actually suggested that I contact ADF. Prayed about it. I didn’t do it immediately, I prayed about it. Me and my husband discussed it through the night, then we put in the request the next day, or it may have even been the day prior after that.
Allen: Thank you so much for sharing with us. So Tyson, I want to pull you in here. You work with Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal group. You all represent all sorts of individuals around freedom of speech, religious freedom. So talk a little bit about when you heard Jennifer’s story and kind of how the process was decided of, “OK, we actually do need to take legal action here.”
Langhofer: Yeah. Well, the most surprising thing about Jennifer’s story to me and the sad thing is that not only did they not have a policy, they modified the policy, or purported to modify the policy, to address that situation. But the sad thing is that this school official actually thought that was going to make it better. It didn’t make it better, it made it worse. Why did it make it worse? Because they targeted political and religious speech.
And if you know anything about the First Amendment at all, you know that the worst thing you can do as a government official is to target certain content of certain speech, the viewpoint of certain speech. And so what it tells you is there’s a lack of understanding in our government officials about what our fundamental rights are.
The fundamental rights are protected by the First Amendment: the right to engage in the free exercise of religion, the right to engage in free speech, and the right to prohibit the government from telling you what you can and can’t say on a specific topic.
So that’s what’s the most concerning, is that they went to those lengths, thinking, “Oh, I’ll make this better. I’ll just modify this policy,” and they modify it to make it worse.
What’s sad, as Jennifer said, is these are the individuals that are supposed to teach our next generation.
The Supreme Court just issued an opinion this term on a topic of a high school speech. And the majority opinion said this, our schools are the nurseries of democracy. If our representative democracy does not protect the marketplace of ideas, it will cease to function.
So what they’re teaching the next generation, like Lydia, is that the government has the right to censor your speech, if they don’t like it, or if other people are uncomfortable with it. That’s the wrong message that we’re supposed to be sending.
And so when I heard that message, I mean, whenever I hear these—I get a lot of inquiries—I’m like, “Well, that can’t be the case. Like, serious, is that really what’s happened?”
I reviewed all the information, and Jennifer was absolutely right. They not only had this policy in writing, but they had modified it to do that. And they had targeted specifically Lydia. So we gave him the opportunity, we said, like, “Hey, do you want to back down?” They didn’t back down, unfortunately.
And so we had to file a lawsuit, and after we filed the lawsuit, they finally said, “OK, Lydia can wear the masks to school. And we’ll remove this prohibition on religious and political speech.” But they haven’t acknowledged that what they did to Lydia was wrong.
So they’re continuing to send this message to the students that what the school did was right and what Lydia did was wrong, and that’s not right. And that’s why we continue to fight, because we want to show Lydia that this is the right thing to do. That she stood up and she was right, and that the government protects those rights.
Allen: Share a little bit about where the lawsuit stands right now, and ultimately, what is that end objective?
Langhofer: Yeah. Again, they’ve modified the policy and they’ve allowed Lydia to wear the mask. So that’s great. But what they haven’t done is they’ve not acknowledged that what they did to Lydia was wrong. We essentially asked them, we wanted to settle, and then have them to acknowledge that, but they haven’t. We’re proceeding with the lawsuit. We are waiting on the judge to rule on a motion. And if that motion is ruled in our favor, then we’ll proceed with the lawsuit.
Allen: OK. Great. So Jennifer, obviously, it is no small thing to decide, “OK, I’m going to stand up. I’m going to make my voice heard. And I’m going to take a really bold step here for religious freedom, for religious speech. Why did you decide, “OK, it’s worth whatever costs may come for me to put a stake in the ground here”? Any time you engage in a lawsuit, you’re bringing your whole family with you. That’s a big decision. Why did you decide to make that choice?
Booth: One, because of the conviction that I had had. God pretty much aligned everything. Not only did he give everything, I mean, he gave us our lawyers.
If I wouldn’t have kept going with this and stood with Lydia, not only the long-term repercussions that she could have, because here we are, we’re Christians, so somebody to do something like that to her, what does that do to her faith as an adult? I don’t know if you realize, but a lot of atheists were Christians or grew up in Christian homes and experienced something like that initially.
Not only for that, but to protect her and my other kids, my grandkids, and everybody else’s kids, because this year is the mask, next year is the T-shirt, eventually you can’t say Jesus’ name in school.
And that’s exactly what we’re called to do as Christians, is share the gospel. And if we can’t do that, what do we have?
If you think back when prayer was taken out of school, it took one person. And if everybody would have stood up against that one person, where would our school systems be today?
So I don’t know about y’all, but whenever I was growing up, we had devotion and prayer every morning, and we said the pledge. And look how fast our school systems have just deteriorated over time. No respect for country and for our freedoms and no respect for God, if you look in the media.
So I want them to know that they’re going to have to do the same thing, and we have to fight for what all of our ancestors fought so hard for us to have.
Allen: Wow. Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing that.
Booth: I’m sorry.
Allen: No, don’t apologize for crying. It’s really beautiful to see a mom that is thinking in the way that you’re thinking. That is thinking about your child’s future. That’s thinking about your grandchildren and what you are leaving them, what is the country that we want them to inherit, and how are we modeling freedom to them. What does that look like? That’s a really, really big deal.
How has this journey affected your family and even your relationship with Lydia?
Booth: It’s really been a roller coaster of emotions, because you know, it’s really not easy. It’s really stressful to have to deal with all the things, like having to talk to media, and then you have the little negative Nancies. Like, I’ve had some comments where, “Oh, that was really blown out of proportion,” and I was like, “Yeah, the school blew it out of proportion.” I’m like, “She had a positive message and they went after her, she didn’t go after anybody.” Stuff like that.
But it all becomes worth it because amongst that, we’ve had a lot of love and support from our community and from, really, across the nation.
We’ve had thousands of letters and I’ve heard comments on her story, like with the “Unmasked” article, where an atheist was like, “Hey, I don’t believe in God, but I can back Lydia up, because she has the right to do this.” And I’m sitting here thinking, “That might be the only piece of God that he ever reads about or experiences. And if that plants a seed, then it was worth all of it.”
My family, they’re all just in amazement of how God took a censorship of her on a school level to the magnitude that he’s used it and put his name everywhere now. It went from that little bit, he just takes it and just runs with it and you’re just like, “Wow, I didn’t expect it.” It’s just amazing to see him work like that.Allen: Yeah. That’s encouraging. The Lord is good at doing that, taking small things and then—
Booth: He does.
Allen: Tyson, are you optimistic about this case and where it’s headed? Talk a little bit about why is this case so critical to not just what’s happening at Lydia’s school, but really across the nation?
Langhofer: I am optimistic about the case. The law is strong. As Jennifer indicated, not only do we have the First Amendment, but Mississippi has a really strong law that protects students’ religious speech on campus, and it’s actually mentioned in their policy. We’re right on the law. And I’m confident that we’re going to win that case.
But it’s important, not because of the principle, because that principle’s there, but the issue that’s important is, we have to have individuals like Lydia that are willing to speak the truth, regardless of the consequences. And we have to have people like Jennifer, as a parent of Lydia, and says, “I’m going to stand for this. We’re going to protect this freedom. This freedom is vital to who we are as Americans, and we must protect it. And we must stand up for the rights, not only of what we believe, but for everybody to express those beliefs.”
This is a universal belief that should not be controversial to allow a little girl to where “Jesus Loves Me” on her mask. And we should support the people that want to wear contrary messages on their masks, because that’s what makes us America and Americans, and the rights that we have, and we have to stand up for those rights. Every generation has to fight for those rights.
Allen: Absolutely. Jennifer, Tyson, thank you both so much for your time. We really appreciate it. And Jennifer, to you and Lydia and your whole family, thank you for being willing to stand up and put a stake in the ground on this issue.
Booth: Yes. Thank you.
Langhofer: Thanks so much for having us.

Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Mike Lee Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Mike Lee Tell Supreme Court to Overturn Roe v. Wade

Three leading pro-life senators have filed a legal brief with the Supreme Court urging it to overturn Roe v. Wade when it considers a new case later this year from Mississippi that bans late-term abortions.
The Supreme Court agreed recently to hold a hearing on a major abortion case that could limit Roe v. Wade and protect babies from late-term abortions.  The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a law that bans killing babies in abortions after 15 weeks.
In a 33-page brief, pro-life Senators Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asked the court to use the case to reverse Roe:

Calling the status quo “untenable,” the senators said the legal doctrine on abortion that emerged over roughly the past five decades since Roe was decided in 1973 has given judges excessive discretion and proven unworkable.
“Roe and Casey should be overruled, and the question of abortion legislation should be returned to the states,” they wrote, referring also to the court’s 1992 decision in Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
“Where a legal doctrine has repeatedly failed to offer clarity — where it has proved unworkable in the past and will likely engender unpredictable consequences in the future — its existence constitutes an open invitation to judges to interpret it according to their own policy preferences, usurping the constitutional prerogatives of the legislature,” the senators wrote.

Last week, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch filed a brief with the Supreme Court asking it to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect babies from abortions.

“There are those who would like to believe that Roe v. Wade settled the issue of abortion once and for all,” said Attorney General Fitch. “But all it did was establish a special-rules regime for abortion jurisprudence that has left these cases out of step with other Court decisions and neutral principles of law applied by the Court. As a result, state legislatures, and the people they represent, have lacked clarity in passing laws to protect legitimate public interests, and artificial guideposts have stunted important public debate on how we, as a society, care for the dignity of women and their children. It is time for the Court to set this right and return this political debate to the political branches of government.”
As noted in the brief, rather than settle the discord established by Roe, Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey made matters worse. “Casey recognized that Roe’s disregard for state interests had to be abandoned…. Casey tried to improve upon Roe by replacing strict scrutiny with the undue-burden  standard. But that standard too defeats important state interests rather than accounts for them.”
The brief continues, “The only workable approach to accommodating the competing interests here is to return the matter to ‘legislators, not  judges.’…The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
“With this brief, we’re simply asking the Court to affirm the right of the people to protect their legitimate interests and to provide clarity on how they may do so,” said Fitch.

In the nearly 50 years since Roe, science and society have marched forward, she said. During this time, the viability marker has moved from 28 weeks to 22 weeks in some cases, and science will only continue to advance.
“Legislatures should be able to respond to those advances, which they cannot do in the face of flawed precedents that are anchored to decades-stale views of  life and health,” the brief reasons.
The Attorney General asks the Court to consider the policy and cultural shifts that have occurred in the 30-50 years since Roe and Casey and argues that the precedent set in these cases, “shackle states to a view of facts that is decades out of date.”
The brief counters Casey, stating, “Many laws (largely post-dating Roe) protect equal opportunity—including prohibitions on sex and pregnancy discrimination in employment, guarantees of employment leave for pregnancy and birth, and support to offset the costs of childcare for working mothers…. Casey gives no good reason to believe that decades of advances for women rest on Roe, and evidence is to the contrary.”
“A lot has changed in five decades,” continued Fitch. “In 1973, there was little support for women who wanted a full family life and a successful career. Maternity leave was rare. Paternity leave was unheard of. The gold standard for professional success was a 9-to-5 with a corner office. The flexibility of the gig economy was a fairy tale. In these last fifty years, women have carved their own way to achieving a better balance for success in their professional and personal lives. By returning the matter of abortion policy to state legislatures, we allow a stunted debate on how we support women to flourish. It is time for the Court to let go of its hold on this important debate.”
The 2018 Mississippi law prohibits abortions after 15 weeks except when there are risks to the life or physical health of the mother, or fatal fetal anomalies. Based on state health records, about 200 unborn babies between 15 and 20 weeks are aborted every year in Mississippi and the law would save their lives.
Fitch’s brief referred to the high court’s recent ruling on a Louisiana abortion regulation in June Medical Services v. Russo. She pointed out conflicting lower court rulings that cite the arguments in that case and asked the Supreme Court for clarification, the report states.
“This case remains an ideal vehicle to promptly resolve both that question and the first question presented—the contradictions in this Court’s decisions over use of ‘viability’ as a bright line for measuring pro-life legislation,” she wrote.

Mississippi’s law highlights a conflict between the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade and the court’s repeated affirmation in subsequent cases that states have a legitimate interest in limiting abortion and protecting “vulnerable and innocent life” from the moment of conception.
“Every human life is valuable, and Mississippi’s law is a commonsense step toward protecting unborn children and their mothers from the harms of late-term abortion,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Harle. “The law protects the life of a baby who can already move around and kick in her mom’s womb—a child who has a heartbeat, can taste what her mom eats, and can experience pain. And the law also protects women, since late-term abortions grow increasingly dangerous to the mother’s health. Women and their children both deserve real health care; that’s why we’re glad the Supreme Court has decided to take up this matter.”
The state argues that “viability” is an arbitrary standard for determining when a state’s interests are sufficient to regulate, and that the Supreme Court has already recognized that the state has a legitimate interest in protecting the unborn infant and the health of the mother from the very beginning of pregnancy.
“The Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that states are free to regulate late-term abortions,” said ADF Senior Counsel and Vice President of Appellate Advocacy John Bursch. “Thanks to amazing progress in scientific research and medical technology, the concept of ‘viability’ is an ever-moving target as younger children have survived and thrived after preterm birth. But ‘viability’ has never been a legitimate way to determine a developing infant’s dignity or to decide anybody’s legal existence. The high court should take this important opportunity to resolve the conflicts between its previous rulings and affirm the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law.”
Many states have pro-life laws that protect unborn children after 20-24 weeks of pregnancy, which is the most they are able to do considering the Supreme Court refuses to allow states to ban abortions prior to viability. Through this new case, Mississippi is challenging that precedent.
Polls consistently find strong public support for abortion restrictions after the first trimester. Gallup has been asking about the legality of abortions by trimester for decades. Its polls have found steady, strong opposition to abortions in the second and third trimesters.
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.
In a separate case, Mississippi also is fighting in court to defend its heartbeat law, which would protect almost all unborn babies from abortions in the state.
The Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion, and instead allowed abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.
There is more hope that the Supreme Court may consider overturning Roe, especially now that Justice Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed.

Outrageous Hyperbole and Democrat Power Grabs: Big Win at Supreme Court Signals Election Battles Ahead

July 26, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch experts were up on Capitol Hill earlier this month explaining the implications of a big 6-3 Supreme Court ruling in the fierce battle for clean elections. The immediate issues in Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, v. Democratic National Committee et al  revolved around out-of-precinct voting and ballot harvesting. Should the Arizona practices be banned?
But both sides are hunting bigger game in the high-stakes case: Section Two of the Voting Rights Act. The standards set in Brnovich will impact a wide array of hot-button state election issues around the nation, including redistricting, voter ID, mail-in ballots, same-day registration, proof required for registration, early voting , third-party collection of ballots, and when polls can close on election day.
Reacting to the July 1 High Court ruling, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called it “a home run for cleaner elections, reaffirming that states may take action to prevent election fraud without waiting for it to occur within their own borders. This new decision rightly rejects the race baiting of the leftist partisans who pretend that neutral provisions to combat voter fraud (such as voter ID and bans on ballot harvesting) are presumptively racist.”
The Left went bonkers over Brnovich. President Biden called it a “broad assault against voting rights.”  The New York Times editorial board said it was an “attack on democracy.” A Washington Post columnist said the decision leaves “voters of color increasingly vulnerable to efforts to exclude them from our democracy.”
Testifying before Capitol Hill committees two weeks later, Judicial Watch experts set the record straight. Judicial Watch Election Integrity Project Director Robert Popper condemned the “outrageous hyperbole” of critics of the Brnovich decision.
Popper noted that Section Two of the Voting Rights Act had given rise in recent years to extreme lawsuits challenging “ordinary-seeming regulations—and changes to such regulations—governing, for example, the use of absentee ballots, in-precinct voting, early voting, voter ID laws, election observers same-day registration, durational residency requirements, and straight-ticket voting.” In a less highly charged political time, Popper noted, the 2005 bipartisan Carter-Baker Commission Report “had expressly noted the need for such regulations, including those regarding absentee ballots, out-of-precinct voting, early voting, in-person ID requirements, and election observers.”
One example of Section Two abuse? In the Husted case, a district court ruled that an Ohio law decreasing the early voting period from 35 to 29 days violated the Voting Rights Act because the change interacted with “historical and social conditions” afflicting minority voters.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision. It noted that the loss of one week of early voting was, at worst, a minor contraction of “one of the many conveniences that have generously facilitated voting participation in Ohio.” The appeals court also noted that thirteen states did not “permit any early in-person voting days.”
The Carter-Baker Commission recommendations and Husted are examples that should be kept in mind when assessing the hyperbole from the Left surrounding Brnovich and current challenges to election regulations, Popper noted.
Popper told Congress: “One hears—and large news outlets dutifully report— that there is a ‘tsunami’ of legislation ‘restricting the right to vote,’ that states reforming their mail-in voting laws as COVID retreats are engaged in ‘voter suppression,’ and even that these actions represent ‘the new Jim Crow.’ These claims are preposterous. At best, they reveal a startling historical ignorance. The grandfather laws, absurd literacy tests, poll taxes, intimidation and terroristic violence of the Jim Crow era have nothing whatever to do with, say, Ohio’s restriction of early voting from 35 to 29 days, or with limiting same-day registration. Nor do they have anything to do with regulating absentee ballots, out-of-precinct voting, or voter ID requirements, all reasonable electoral integrity measures approved by the Carter-Baker Commission. At worst these statements reveal a startling cynicism, driven by a desire to inflame passions—and to raise funds.”
Popper testified before a House Judiciary Committee subcommittee on July 16. Two days earlier, Judicial Watch Senior Attorney Russell Nobile spoke to a Senate subcommittee. Looking ahead, both men warned of trouble in the post-Brnovich landscape.
“In particular,” Popper noted, the Democrats’ top election bill priority in Congress—HR 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act—“is a bad idea.” It gives the attorney general “new, unchecked power” to sue directly for violations of the Constitution. The new powers likely would be centered in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department which, Popper warned, “has in the past proved to be a hotbed of partisanship.”
Russell Nobile noted in his Senate testimony that the “truth is that HR 4 goes far beyond any civil rights law enacted during the height of the civil rights era. Rather, it is part of a grander plan to shift control of American elections away from individual state legislatures and into the hands of a single federal bureaucratic department.” You can read more from Nobile on HR 4 and the looming election integrity crisis in this Judicial Watch report.
Nobile also noted problems at the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, where both he and Popper served earlier in their careers. Citing the recent “tremendous debate” over Critical Race Theory (CRT)—the Marxism-rooted ideology insisting that American democracy is suffused to its core by racism and must be dismantled—Nobile said that “there are few places in the federal government that are more dominated by the assumptions that underlie CRT. The partisanship and hostility towards staff that do not share the same assumptions is startling” and includes, from some, “a shocking level of intolerance.”
Nobile warns that even within highly political Washington, “the culture of the Voting Section stands out for its partisanship. Any legislation that shifts greater federal power to the Department’s Voting Section will make elections worse, not better.”

#MyButtsBeenWiped Trends After Latest Bizarre Sleepy Joe Meltdown

#MyButtsBeenWiped Trends After Latest Bizarre Sleepy Joe Meltdown

Joe Biden experienced another apparent cognitive meltdown Sunday as he waddled toward reporters outside the White House. Biden belligerently screamed a series of words that sounded to many people like he said “My butt’s been wiped.” Enough people heard this that #MyButtsBeenWiped became a Trending Topic on Twitter. If that is indeed what he said, then Biden’s use of the passive voice would suggest that someone else is wiping him, which would suggest that the task falls to a White House staffer. This is just the latest in a series of recent Biden meltdowns.

Biden’s grasp on normal appropriate interaction appears to be rapidly declining.
Joe Biden rambled about a scenario in which parents have to tell their kids about “those aliens” and questioned “Is there a man on the moon?” in a bizarre and disturbing fiasco broadcast on the CNN cable channel.
Joe Biden stated the following in an onstage interview with CNN’s Don Lemon: “Or or or the mom and dad, or or or the neighbor, when you go to church, I I I I really mean it,” Biden rambled in an alarming breakdown of his speech capabilities. “There are trusted interlocutors. Think of the people, if your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were, there was a man on the moon or whatever, something. Or, you know, whether those aliens are here or not, you know who are the people they talk to beyond the kids who love talking about it?”

As NATIONAL FILE’s Andrew White reported: Joe Biden was answering questions from reporters by Marine One when he randomly asked them if Republicans think “we’re sucking the blood out of kids” in response to a question about defunding the police. This is the second time the President has randomly brought up the notion that he and Democrats suck out the blood of children.

While speaking to a group of reporters by Marine One, Joe Biden abruptly brought up “sucking the blood out of kids” again when asked a question about defunding the police. “We are not defunding the police, and have not,” Biden told the reporters, who responded by asking him “are there people in the Democratic Party who want to defund the police?” Rather than provide an answer to the question he was asked, Biden randomly asked the reporters, “are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?”

Anyone else concerned how obsessed Joe Biden is with sucking blood out of kids?pic.twitter.com/VC8erjCGA6

“I’m not sure,” the reporter said, only to repeat her first question about defunding the police as Biden began to walk away. The President ultimately did not answer her question.

This would not be the first time that Joe Biden has brought up sucking children’s blood. During a CNN Presidential Town Hall, Joe Biden made a strange statement denying that he and Democrats are hiding people and sucking blood out of children, as National File reported. “I sometimes get myself in trouble for what I’m about to say, not that I ever get in trouble,” Biden chuckled. “As you’ve heard me say before, no one ever doubts I mean what I say, the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. But all kidding aside, I have faith in the American people. I really do, to ultimately get to the right place, and by the way, many times Republicans are in the right place. I don’t mean that the Repub-it’s always a Democratic point of view, but some of this stuff, I mean Qanon,” Biden said.

PRES. BIDEN: “The idea that the Democrats or the Biden is hiding people and sucking the blood of children, no I’m serious, that’s the — Now you may not like me and that’s your right..”

When It Stops Being a Laughing Matter

When It Stops Being a Laughing Matter

He called himself a QAnon Tier I Ranger SEAL Operator, and had the 17 tabs down one sleeve to prove it. “In a situation like this, Embed, you stick to me and I’ll get you home, brother. Unless the GPS gets us lost again.”Behind the wheel of his F-150, looking for parking near the state capitol, I knew he meant it. The eyes, always the eyes. In the backseat was his AR-15 with the handle on top, equipped with several dozen accessories from Bass Pro. His personal gear said he was ready, clothing half in arctic-urban-backyard camo, half blaze orange. “I can’t afford this s*** unless I can get two seasons out of it,” he said. He asked I call him “Mike,” though I found out on Facebook his real name is Michael. His tactical hair gel caught the light as he spoke.“If we find free parking we approach from the east. If we have to feed the meter, I come in from the north.” The tactical radio rang. “Honey, I told you it’ll be after 6p.m. … I don’t know, get a pizza,” he said in some sort of Pepe code.“The mission today is to occupy the space in front of the CNN crew and dominate the interviews. CNN will identify themselves by removing their heads from their own butts, so watch for the signal. Stay frosty in case we spot Maddow and I call an audible. And bunch up so it looks like there’re more of us.”You’re right, that didn’t happen. I made Mike up. It’s funny.But this did happen: Daily Beast published a “scoop” revealing one of the men charged in the January 6 riot had a fully assembled Lego model of the Capitol in his home, which the FBI insinuated was used as a tactical planning tool and thus seized as evidence. It formed part of the prosecution’s argument against bail. It sounds like a joke.The problem is that it wasn’t true; the man merely had the unopened Lego set and the prosecutors lied. The accused rioter remains in jail. The Lego set is still available on Amazon.And this is also true and not so funny. Most of the 539 people arrested for the January riot did not commit acts of violence, and face accusations of little more than gussied up trespassing. Many were charged simply with violating a 6 p.m. curfew. Yet almost all have been denied bail and are being held in solitary as a “safety measure”—lockdown 23 hours a day.In any other context such treatment of innocent people would raise a woke storm. The ACLU claims “prolonged solitary confinement is torture and certainly should not be used as a punitive tool to intimidate or extract cooperation.” Except, that is, in what has become a punitive political prosecution. The decision maker on jail conditions? Biden’s attorney general.Meanwhile, after six months, the first person was finally tried. He pled to a misdemeanor charge of “parading in the Capitol building” and was given probation. The second prosecution ended with time served on a misdemeanor charge. Next up was a yet-unsentenced plea to “obstructing Congress.” Another trespasser had his bail revoked and was sent to solitary for leaving a voicemail to the court referencing “the size of his genitalia.” Brownshirt stuff, amiright?In another pending case involving no violence or vandalism, prosecutors demanded maximum penalties, stating though “individuals convicted of such behavior may have no criminal history, their beliefs make them unique among criminals in the likelihood of recidivism.” A thought crime.The single felony conviction out of all of this led to only an 8 month sentence for “obstructing an official proceeding.” Somehow not a terrorism, sedition, or treason charge to be found in D.C. Prosecutors demanded a much greater sentence by claiming the action was an “assault on democracy.” As a metric, Hitler was sentenced to 5 years for his failed “beer hall putsch.”Only 534 cases more to go to see justice. Rarely have so many resources been used to accomplish so little.This is true but not so funny, too. The day after the Capitol riots, the FBI asked Americans “to step up” and identify people who participated. Not only did friends and relatives rat each other out, but armies of unrelated people jumped at the chance to roleplay Stasi. Even somewhat news organization CNN helped identify people on behalf of the FBI. The New York Times published a guide to militia symbols so would-be sleuths could tell their Oathkeepers from their QAnons. The AP called these citizens “sedition hunters” as America weaponized the Kancel Kulture Kids into an e-mob.“I put my emotions behind me to do what I thought was right,” said Jackson Reffitt, whose GoFundMe hit $140,000 after he turned in his own father to the FBI.Tech found its niche. While the mob was still in the Capitol, groups including Bellingcat scraped everything posted to build evidence for the FBI. Reddit users created a 12GB tranche of videos. Intelligence X (whose customers are “companies of all sizes and governments”) has 1,300 files. The goal was to crowdsource identification so no rioter escapes.“If you look at the history and incidents like the 1812 breach of the Capitol as well as the 1933 German Reichstag fire it highlights the need for accurate and original data in historical context,” said Intelligence X’s CEO. Wired reminds us how “Previously, third-party groups archiving video and photo evidence have been crucial in the process of identifying war crimes happening in Syria.” The 1812 breach was by the British Army in time of war. There was no fire, Reichstag or otherwise, on January 6, and certainly no war crimes.Further extending the private sector’s reach into Americans’ rights and privacy, the Department of Justice hired a contractor (Deloitte at $6.1 million) to catalog all this tech-collected data, surrendering the decision of who is prosecutable to private industry. A judge recently put the project on temporary hold.Working the other side of the operation, Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube deleted live streams of the Capitol riot and demonetized the accounts. Twitter went further, tagging Trump’s tweets about the riot with a warning, deactivated most engagement “due to a risk of violence,” all before removing the Trump material completely. For next time, Facebook revealed it has a tool called CrowdTangle which tracks users’ engagement levels with whatever the hell Facebook thinks is a right-wing media source. The tool is available only to selected academics and journalists, of course.And this is not funny at all. The FBI published a manual for citizens to use to report on each other for “displaying a readiness to commit a violent act” or even “displaying a mindset oriented toward committing a violent act.”Most of it is recycled from some post-9/11 “How to Spot an Islamic Terrorist Under Your Bed” campaign, making it even more obvious white militia is to be this generation’s jihadi bogeyman. Though a jaunty warning reminds that many of the FBI’s “indicators” are also constitutionally protected acts, such as owning a gun and criticizing the government, the main point is when in doubt, turn them in, Citizen.Funny as it is, despite the wishes of Democrats, their FBI, and their MSM, the January 6 riot was just not an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government or change an election. The rioters had absolutely no path to doing that, no mechanism for stopping Joe Biden becoming president. They hardly even qualified as vandals: no fires set, no destruction of priceless paintings or statues, no ransacking of files. They dispersed relatively quickly and simply went home. In contrast, BLM riots took multiple lives and did millions of dollars in damage across the nation for months.Apart from fear mongering, the Democrats also have larger goals in mind. They want to get people used to working to further political law enforcement, and to become more comfortable with, if not demanding of, unequal law enforcement as a political tool.So no surprise the Biden administration just unveiled a national strategy to combat “domestic extremism,” calling for ideological screening of government employees for ties to “hate groups.” The plan highlights a shift in the government’s approach, which for decades prioritized fighting foreign terrorists. Those same tools of war will now be turned inward, on us, to validate the Democratic dystopia the party plans to run on. And that for sure is not funny.Peter Van Buren is the author of We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People, Hooper’s War: A Novel of WWII Japan, and Ghosts of Tom Joad: A Story of the 99 Percent.

EXCLUSIVE: Maricopa County Witness Evidence Confirms SharpieGate Effort To Hurt Trump In Election

EXCLUSIVE: Maricopa County Witness Evidence Confirms SharpieGate Effort To Hurt Trump In Election

President Donald Trump supporters and American patriots nationwide are emboldened after an Arizona state Senate hearing on the Maricopa County election audit proved massive fraud. Among the audit’s findings so far: 11,326 people in the county who voted in the November 3 election were NOT on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the voter rolls by December 4. This number is higher than Joe Biden’s supposed statewide “lead” in Arizona of 10,457 votes. Additionally, more than 74,000 mail-in ballots were counted in the county even though there is no recorded evidence of the ballots being sent to the “voters” in the first place — and Maricopa County withheld all photographic evidence of the mail-in ballot envelopes from the Republican audit team (meanwhile, photographs show ballot printers and boxes getting loaded onto a “Destruction” truck in Phoenix during the Senate hearing). Thin ballot paper used for approximately 168,000 ballots led to markers “bleeding through” the paper, damaging ballots, after a Maricopa County official ordered staff to hand out Sharpie markers to same-day voters even though she knew about concerns with the Sharpies. Now, new witness evidence provided to NATIONAL FILE proves, once and for all, that the SharpieGate scandal is completely true. (READ: Maricopa Official Who Demanded Republicans Use Sharpies On Election Day Donated To Democrat Mark Kelly Campaign).
WITNESS STATEMENT: On November 3rd 2020 I went to go vote around 2:00pm. I live in North Scottsdale somewhere along Thompson Peak Parkway. I went to go vote at this address 8600 E Anderson Dr, Scottsdale AZ 85255 which was a particularly large building. I parked my car and I was talking to a lady who was handing out drinks. She was a Republican just like me. I spoke to her for about 10 minutes and we were excited about Trump. After the 10 minutes was up I went inside to go vote. As soon as I entered the building I gave the lady my voter registration card which of course verifies my political party and if I am registered to vote. She proceeds to hand me a sharpie. I told her why the hell would I use a marker for my ballot when I can use my own ball point pen? She immediately argued with me for refusing to use a sharpie. I told the lady I wasn’t stupid! I was once an engineering student and I know that these machines are programmed to only read ball point pen only. It was even stated on the sample ballot to use ball point pen only. She then argues with me about the machines being a “New System” and that I need to trust the system because it can now read sharpies. I told her why would I trust this new system?

I also stated that the sample ballot even states to use ball point pen as well as the original one which was printed out to me. I spent about 45 minutes arguing with her. Eventually I got sick of hearing her shit and I told her to hand me my ballot after arguing with her. I took her dumb sharpie and used it on my ballot because I had to pick up a client at 3:30pm and I didn’t want to waste more time arguing with this lady. I was then directed to go vote at the red table. I then became highly suspicious because why were the tables color coded red and blue around me and why was I directed to vote at the red table? When I was filling out my ballot I also decided to take a photo of my ballot so I can upload it to social media. I was proud of voting for Trump. Then the same lady who argued with me about the sharpie screams at me for taking a photo of my ballot and told me that “There are no phones or cameras allowed inside.” I told her it’s my ballot which is now my property and I can do what I want with it. Once I was done with my ballot I was directed to give my ballot to the guy on the left which I did. I then left the building frustrated. Never in my life have I had a difficult time voting in my life. I later became very suspicious about the situation and kept checking if my ballot was counted. I never saw my ballot update in the system so I assumed my ballot was spoiled or not counted due to the use of the sharpie. I wish I would have obtained more photos but I was in a rush. Also the sharpie did cause the ink to bleed through. Below I have attached pictures of my ballot with an arrow showing the red table. These photos were taken using a Samsung galaxy note 10plus 5G.”

SharpieGate: “We are seeing a lot of very thin paper stock being used especially on Election Day,” said Doug Logan, Cyber Ninjas CEO, noting that approximately 168,000 on-site ballots printed at polling places used this thin paper, which resulted in a “bleed-through” ink effect that damaged ballots. Evidence shows that a Maricopa County government official ordered her underlings to hand out Sharpie markers to Election Day voters (mostly Trump voters showed up to vote on Election Day) despite “issues and concerns” with the markers.

NATIONAL FILE REPORTED IN NOVEMBER 2020: “An election day video shot in Arizona has drawn scrutiny nationwide after voters in the hotly contested state reported being issued Sharpie permanent markers to fill out their ballots, as opposed to the standard ballpoint pen, raising concerns that ballots filled out with the markers will not be properly counted. Filmed outside a polling location in Maricopa County, a woman on screen can be heard telling a man recording footage of the incident that poll workers were handing out Sharpies to voters, triggering vote-counting machines to reject ballots. Despite the issues, poll workers seemed to have barred the use of pens, maintaining that ballots must be filled out with Sharpies despite having pens on hand and barring voters from using their own or each other’s pens to vote.
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” the woman said.
“They had a bowl of pens behind them that they were not giving to people and only giving Sharpies out,” she says as another woman appears to corroborate her story.
What’s more, is the woman in the video says that after posting an account of her troubles voting to a local Facebook chat, more voters described a similar experience, all seeming to revolve around a region surrounding the Town of Gilbert, a heavily Republican area.
“I posted it on my Facebook group chat in my neighborhood, they said they did it at the Queen Creek Library, they did it at ASU Polytech earlier, that like four different polling places were doing Sharpies all in – like between Queen Creek and the edge of Gilbert.”
When the woman began alerting other voters at the polling location to the issue with the Sharpie markers, “there was a guy that directly came out and yelled at me. Three times.”
“They called the sheriffs[…]and told us to stop handing out the ballpoint pens,” the man recording responds. “In which case, those [ballots being filled out with ballpoint pens] are the only ones being counted and validated.”
“And so we know that and we’ve been telling them you need to use a ballpoint pen, not the sharpie, and now those are getting invalidated. So people are coming here to vote for Donald Trump and those votes are all getting invalidated. There we go…Welcome to the new America, people. That’s what’s going on!”…Arizona State Senator-elect Kelly Townsend, currently a State House Representative, confirms, after speaking to the Maricopa County Recorder’s office staff, that the reports of voters in Republican-leaning areas being given sharpies by poll workers that allegedly resulted in ballots being rendered unusable are now officially under investigation, and urges Maricopa County residents to aid in the effort.”
NATIONAL FILE REPORTED ON NOVEMBER 6: “A video has been uncovered released by Arizona officials last month that instructs voters not to use sharpies when casting their ballots.

Republican voters in Arizona during the election reported that they were forced to use Sharpies instead of ballpoint pens, something that is alleged would result in the ballots being thrown out, with the controversy being labelled “SharpieGate” as a result. National File reported on a viral video from a female voter on her experiences at the voting booth:
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” the woman said.

Now a video has emerged from the official YouTube channel of Pima County, Arizona, with officials telling voters that they should not use sharpies or any permanent markers when casting their ballot. “Use a black or blue ballpoint pen, no sharpies, to fill in the ovals next to your candidates name,” the official in the video says.

NATIONAL FILE REPORTED ON NOVEMBER 30, 2020: “Trump campaign expert witness Colonel Phil Waldron confirmed the SharpieGate scandal during Arizona’s hearing on election integrity on Monday.
Republican voters on election day in Maricopa County in Arizona reported that they were forced to use Sharpies, rather than ballpoint pens, and were concerned that there would be bleedthroughs, and therefore invalidate the ballots. The hashtag “SharpieGate” went viral, with Arizona voters posting their concerns all over social media.
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” one woman said at the time.
During Monday’s hearing in Arizona on election integrity, Colonel Phil Waldron, an expert witness, confirmed the scandal’s existence when discussing the topic with former New York mayor and head of the Trump legal team, Rudy Giuliani.
“Tell us about the green button in Maricopa County on the machine,” Giuliani asked Waldron. “There is one witness that is going to testify that all day she saw election officials constantly pressing the green button when somebody was voting.”
“I believe this was also linked to another witness that’s going to talk about the differences between the pens and the sharpies,” Waldron replied. “The Maricopa elections division in early voting they specified to only use ballpoint pens for voting, and then on election day they specified only use sharpies.”
National File confirmed this story, with Maricopa County Elections Assistant Director Kelly Dixon identifying issues with ballots being cast using Sharpie markers but still insisting that voters who cast their ballot on November 3 must do so using sharpies.”

Republicans hoping to get President Donald Trump back in office can look to left-wingers for advice. That’s right. After the 2016 election, liberals tried to overturn Trump’s victory and laid out numerous strategies for doing so, as we will explain below. Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers stated: “I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right.” Arizona state senator Sonny Borelli stated: “I’ve seen enough evidence to challenge the validity of the certification of the Maricopa County Election results.” Arizona state senator Kelly Townsend stated that “I want to see indictments.” Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach, referring to the massive voter fraud revelations in his own state of Georgia, said, “We can ask for our 16 Electoral College votes back, and park them here. And just say, we don’t want those as part of the vote.” Beach explained, “Decertify our 16 electoral votes. Park them here. Bring them back, and park them in Georgia. And then if Arizona did that, if a couple other states did that, and it got below 270, then the Twelfth Amendment would kick in, and Congress would have to act.” So would Republicans put Decertificaton of the 2020 election on the ballot for the 2022 midterms, or can Wendy Rogers’ strategy prove effective and can we get a re-vote of the entire election? Arguments can certainly be made for an Election “Re-Do.”
As Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan revealed some of his evidence at an Arizona Senate hearing, ballot printers and boxes were being moved in Phoenix onto a truck providing “Destruction” services. The establishment appears to be panicking. Maricopa County officials have confirmed that they are getting rid of the election equipment that was inspected in the audit.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan said at a hearing before Arizona state senators Thursday that his election audit found more than 74,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Maricopa County with no record of them being sent to the voters, and that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped down to zero during the counting process. Logan is demanding the full library of mail-in ballot images from Maricopa County, which the county has not provided to him. Biden’s official lead in Arizona stands at only 10,457 votes.
“We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” Doug Logan said. “And so we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them.”

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased. “We’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail-in ballots were received, that so many of them were received that the standard was reduced over time. They originally talked about, there was originally 20 points of comparison on the signature and then after some time they were told to go to ten points of comparison, then five. And then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through,” Doug Logan stated, noting that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence. Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recommended re-subpoenaing those images.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who served as the Republican state Senate’s liaison to the Maricopa County audit, confirmed that “thousands” of ballots that were set aside to be duplicated had no serial number on them or a very “light” unreadable serial number, making them impossible to properly count during the 2020 election.
“There was almost one whole pallet that were called original/damaged ballots sent to duplication…if a ballot gets damaged and has to be sent to duplication,” Bennett explained. “We found I would have to say thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them” which “has created great difficulty in trying to match up.”
Bennett said that “thousands” of ballots in the duplicate pile had serial numbers “put on by a dot matrix printer, very very light” and there was “none whatsoever on many” ballots. When asked how you would know if ballots are duplicated or not with no serial number, Ken Bennett confirmed that you would NOT know. The stunning revelation provides more substance to President Donald Trump’s assertion that the 2020 election was illegitimate.

Tech contractor Ben Cotton, a witness in the Arizona Senate hearing Thursday on the Arizona election audit, confirmed that the Maricopa County election system was “compromised” during the 2020 election. “An element of the election system was actually compromised or breached during the course of the November 2020 election…The registration server that was public facing did have unauthorized access to that. In cybersecurity terms, it was breached…The county issued a letter” regarding the problem, stated tech expert Cotton.

In March, there were more than 37,000 anonymous administrative queries to access the 2020 election system in Maricopa County that defied “normal Windows behavior,” according to cyber expert Ben Cotton, a witness at the Arizona state Senate hearing Thursday on the election audit.
“The Windows logs will actually record the user name that is requesting that action” in addition to the IP address and the host name of the client making the request, said tech expert Ben Cotton. “What we are seeing here…is we’re seeing anonymous logins at the system level that do not follow that pattern of normal Windows behavior.” Cotton said that he needs to obtain data to figure out what the activity is.

President Donald Trump stated: “Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent.” There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls after the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?) Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE. The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.”
“Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate Patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?” stated Republican President Trump, who served honorably in the Oval Office from 2017 until his ouster by the Deep State in January 2021.
The Left Tried To Overturn The 2016 Election After Trump Won, Demanding A Revote And Petitioning Attorneys General
The left-wing VoicesofMillionsCoalition drafted a Change.org petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to force a “Revote of the 2016 Elections (Primary and General).” The group’s petition stated: “The people of Austria and Ukraine prompted their Supreme Court to overturn their elections following widespread election hacking. We must do the same. Jerroll M. Sanders—legal strategist for a far-reaching citizen revote effort—looked at U.S. law through a new lens and drafted a writ of mandamus that amounts to a solid challenge to the 2016 elections. Citizens across the nation walked into courts and filed the documents drafted by Sanders to safeguard our right to vote. One of the writs filed jointly by three citizen petitioners now sits before the U.S. Supreme Court. The writ asks the Court to declare the 2016 elections (primary and general) unconstitutional because the U.S. Government failed to protect States’ against cyber invasions during the 2016 elections as required by Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.  www.revote.org.”
On November 21, 2017, VoicesofMillionsCoalition posted that “Revote Coalition Launches Promising Strategy to Obtain Revote of 2016 Federal Elections” and stated, “Revote Coalition (www.revote.info) has sent requests to several State Attorneys General (AGs) asking them to file a Supreme Court (SCOTUS) case seeking a revote of the 2016 federal elections. AGs are considering the group’s request.” Of course, in the 2020 election, the Coalition encouraged its anti-Trump supporters to vote with paper ballots.
State Supreme Courts have ordered re-votes of contested elections
This time four years ago, in July 2017, the liberal website FiveThirtyEight ran an article headlined “What Happens If The Election Was A Fraud? The Constitution Doesn’t Say?,” which delved into the strategies Democrats could try to use to overturn the election if “Russian interference” was found to have helped Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. Needless to say, liberals were very much open to the idea of overturning the election results using legislative process. FiveThirtyEight even linked to some examples of cases that could be used to support a re-do of the 2016 presidential election, the way the 1974 Senate election in New Hampshire sparked a re-vote the following year.
In July 2002, the Chicago Tribune ran a headline entitled “Supreme Court doesn’t bar revote in primary” in which staff reporter Christi Parsons reported: “Clearing the way for a new election to correct a faulty Illinois House primary, the state Supreme Court on Friday declined to step in and avert plans to hold the unprecedented revote this fall. As a result, election officials are on course to hold a do-over election Sept. 10 for the West Side Chicago and west suburb House seat. In the initial election, some ballots were not counted, some were lost before an official recount and others were mistakenly cast by voters who didn’t live in the district. A Cook County judge last month ordered a new primary election in the race between Democrats Dorothy Reid and Deborah Graham. On Friday, justices declined to take up a direct appeal of that ruling, leaving an appeals court to hear complaints from Reid. She had been declared the winner after a coin flip to break a tie between her and Graham, opening the door to a court challenge soon after the March primary.”
In 2004, WTHR 13 in Indianapolis reported on the Indiana Supreme Court ordering a new East Chicago mayoral election as a result of fraud. WTHR reported: “The Indiana Supreme Court says supporters of long-time East Chicago Mayor Robert Pastrick bought absentee votes to get him re-elected last year. The state’s highest court Friday ordered a new election because of pervasive corruption in the Democratic primary in which Pastrick defeated George Pabey by 123 votes.”
The Supreme Court of Connecticut in 2006 upheld a lower court’s ruling that an election must be re-done for Middletown city council. The Supreme Court of Connecticut wrote in its decision on Bauer vs. Souto: “This appeal concerns a contested municipal election for the common council of the city of Middletown (council) that was held on November 8, 2005…Following the filing of simultaneous briefs and oral argument before this court, we announced the decision of this court from the bench on December 21, 2005, affirming the trial court’s judgment ordering a new election to be held on January 24, 2006, but reversing the judgment as to the scope of that election. Specifically, we ordered the new election to be citywide, and not limited to district eleven, the district in which the contest arose, as ordered by the trial court…The defendants’ suggestion, made at oral argument in this court, that the new election be limited to those voters who actually voted in the first election in district eleven, is patently unreasonable. There is nothing in our law or in our democratic traditions to suggest that, if a voter does not vote in an election, he or she waives his right to do so when the results of that election prove unreliable and a court orders a new election.”
Back when liberals thought they could overturn the 2016 election, FiveThirtyEight reported (emphasis added): “Others (legal scholars) suggest that there is legal precedent for a presidential re-vote if there were flaws in the process. One instance in which this question arose was the “butterfly ballot” from the 2000 election, which may have caused some voters to choose Pat Buchanan when they meant to vote for Al Gore in Palm Beach County, Florida…At least one federal court has suggested that the courts could order a new election. In 1976, a District Court in New York heard a case alleging voter fraud in several urban locations. The court’s opinion maintained that federal courts had a role to play in ensuring free and fair presidential elections, arguing: “It is difficult to imagine a more damaging blow to public confidence in the electoral process than the election of a President whose margin of victory was provided by fraudulent registration or voting, ballot-stuffing or other illegal means.” This assertion challenged the idea that presidential elections occupy a special category beyond such court remedies.” (FiveThirtyEight passage ends)

Kelly C from Arizona said on Twitter that “they were snatching people’s ball point pens away very aggressively, but the liberal cities like Tucson there was a sign that no sharpies allowed, definitely done on purpose” and “they didn’t just hand them out forcefully (they) took people’s ball point pen and said we can’t use them.”

True and they didn’t just hand them out they forcefully took peoples ball point pen and said we can’t use them

BRAD RAFFENSPERGER: ELECTION FRAUD-FIGHTING SUPER HERO…GA SoS Tells Whoppers In Political Speech To Rural Audience

BRAD RAFFENSPERGER: ELECTION FRAUD-FIGHTING SUPER HERO…GA SoS Tells Whoppers In Political Speech To Rural Audience

GA SoS Tells Whoppers In Political Speech To Rural Audience

Screenshot Youtube

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

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told some whoppers this week to a rural audience in Fitzgerald. Luckily, some local patriots filmed the event and sent the video to The Georgia Record.

Raffensperger really does think you are stupid.

The audio is not great but you can hear it all if you listen close enough.

Brad wants you to think he is an election fraud-fighting super hero. He’s not of course. He’s just the opposite – an election fraud super villain, who will now say anything to get re-elected and continue the fraud.

Here are some examples of the whoppers Brad tells:

In 2019 he helped pass HV 316 which provides a verifiable paper ballot which then allows audits – WRONG – the ballots provided are not verifiable according to VoterGA.org. The only thing the machines provide is paper with a QR code, which is not the original ballot and not verifiable. HB 316 ‘outlawed’ ballot harvesting. That may be true but Brad neglects to tell you he fraudulently and unconstitutionally made a deal with Democrat operative Stacey Abrams which negated any progress in the bill. This ‘consent decree’ was kept secret even from the GA legislature until after Nov 3rd. Brad says HB 316 prevented people from ‘driving up and down the street picking up absentee ballots’. Brad neglects to tell you his consent decree allowed just that – drop boxes to be set up all over GA which were not monitored; chain of custody documentation for over 300k ballots is missing. Brad incredulously brings up election reform cases in Arizona where courts recently gave a favorable ruling. Brad neglects to mention the election audit in Maricopa County which has shown massive fraud already (final report is not out which will be damning) in the 2020 election. Brad even says he will take the fight to the DOJ in their lawsuit against HB 202 (GA’s election reform bill) and push to the Supreme Court. Brad neglects to tell you this is the same court system that refused to hear any 2020 election fraud case on the merits, preferring to dismiss on standing. Brad says HB 202 will prevent ‘out of precinct voting’ which is exactly what Brad allowed in GA in 2020.Brad says he ‘recounted’ all 5M ballots cast in 2020 in GA. He neglects to tell you he opposed a full forensic audit where counterfeit ballots and machine-vote-altering would be discovered.

Brad then goes on to brag he is going to take the ability to run elections away from Fulton County, where everyone knows there was fraud. This is the pot calling the kettle black. Brad prevented examination of Dominion machines across the state in 2020, even sending armed personnel to threaten county officials. Results of Brad’s ‘audit’ have been shown to be fraudulent with documents (tally sheets) POSTED ON THE SECRETARY OF STATE’S website. Brad has fought VoterGA tooth and nail to actually scan the mail-in ballots in Fulton County at the level needed to detect counterfeit ballots, even filing a deceitful amicus brief.

But the stunner in the above video, is when Brad brags he may take over elections across the state of GA.

GA voters should be afraid, be very afraid of Brad Raffensperger getting re-elected.

What Does the Severe Flood of Henan Province Tell us about the CCP?

What Does the Severe Flood of Henan Province Tell us about the CCP?

By MOS Education Group — Maverick

The recent flood in China’s Henan province has triggered worldwide attention. Mainstream media around the world, along with the official media of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mostly report that this is caused by “rare and severe rainfall”, a phenomenon that can only be encountered “once per a thousand years”, or blame it on the river systems running through the province which are prone to flooding. Apart from this, the death tolls of the incident were initially reported total number of 12, and then gradually increased by days. 
However, the truth of the incident is far darker than that, based on what was revealed by the leaked out footages provided by some citizens in Henan Province and the inside intelligence acquired by Mr. Miles Guo as well as from other members of Whistleblowing Movement.
According to insiders’ information, the flood was deliberately triggered, by releasing overload water accumulated from the heavy rain from 47 reservoirs in the province, without giving any prior notice to the public. The CCP official says this is simply “letting the overload water out safely” and has nothing to do with the flood. This caused massive flooding around the entire Henan province and all the tragic scenes seen in the leaked footage. Under the CCP, the actual death toll will never be revealed, but by estimation it is at least exceeding 100,000 people.
The motive behind this act was also political in nature. Mr. Miles Guo revealed in his Gettr account at July 21, that the flood water destroyed the PLA’s General Command for operations against Taiwan, which is located 40 meters underground and the area with 1:1 mocks up for battle drills in the city of Zhengzhou. It is speculated that the order to release the water was given by Xi Jinping’s political rivals, notably former President Jiang Zemin’s faction (also known as the Gang of Shanghai). They do not want Xi to invade Taiwan because the consequence will serious endangers their own astronomical number of properties and illegitimate children that they hide in the West.
According to Miles Guo’s Gettr on July 21, 2021, after the flood happened, no rescue teams showed up to help the locals. Traffic was at halt and no lifeboats available to use (people used floating cars as rescue boats, as seen in the leaked footages); funds were embezzled, and the secondary disasters are even more detrimental and long-lasting. The disaster has completely exposed the poor-quality, “jerry-build” construction of buildings that is the result of massive scale of corruption, embezzlement and counterfeit.
While the impact of the flood on Zhengzhou city is terrible enough, the situation in the rural area of Henan province is even worse owing to the lack of infrastructures and supporting facilities for the rescue operation, and the corruption of the regional(county and village level) government. Mr Miles Guo also mentioned, the rural area of Henan belongs to one of the most poorest regions in China.
In his 5th Gettr on July 23, 2021, Mile Gun also indicated what makes people even more outrageous is the fact that the police were mobilized, not for commanding rescue operations, but to “seal the mouth” of the disaster-stricken people, particularly those whose families or friends died. Police even came to their home and warn them not to tell anyone about their deceased and anything about the flood. Otherwise, they could be arrested because of treason. The flood also seriously damaged many infrastructures, particularly hospitals, causing many injured people not to be saved on time and died. In addition, many telecommunications facilities and power stations were damaged, hence people were not able to spread the truth to the outside world.
In his 9th Gettr on July 20, 2021, Mile Guo’s message keeps us pondering what the local government has done to help their people so far? Literally nothing. It gives 100 million RMB for the people in Henan who are affected by the disaster, which in average each person only gets RMB 1 Yuan as relief, while the CCP gives away tens of billions of dollar (in USD) to just one “African Brother” country. The CCP also tells the Chinese people that the flood was possibly caused by American climate weapons and the cyclone nearby Taiwan. 
Meanwhile, according to Miles Guo’s 6th Gettr on July 23, 2021, the CCP’s state-owned media tried to spread their propaganda. To the outside world, they claime everything is fine and the rescue operation is in full swing, and that there are only a few had died; Internally, they continue their brainwashing, telling the people to “keep their faith on the Party”, and everything is going to be fine; encouraging people do donate money for the rescue operation, and stating that “in the meantime, Europe is also suffering from flood, so we did a much better job comparing to them!”. 
The disaster also indicates a horrifying phenomenon. From some leaked footage, it is revealed that when the flood water entered the subway, people inside the train literally do nothing but keep waiting for rescue team to come, even when they saw the water level is gradually rising. This implies that they seemed to be brainwashed with the idea “have faith and just believe in the Party” to a degree that they have already lost the very natural survival instinct. This may be completely incomprehensible for westerners. Besides, the citizens of Henan province actually expressed gratitude to the government, for giving them 1 dollar aid per person as relief… This let us know more about the evilness of the CCP, and how the CCP has completely mentally emasculated the Chinese people.
In his 8th Gettr on July 20, 2021, Miles Guo pointed out the mainstream media of the West, such as CNN, BBC, CNBC, Global Times, was sharing a same attitude as the CCP government, stating that the progress of the rescue operation was good, despite thee number of death discovered has been increasing daily, a lot more number of lives were saved because of the effort of the local government. Chinese citizen of other provinces did intend to help the people of Henan and they tried to do fund-raising, but those money eventually, would end up in the CCP official’s pocket.
From the truth of the Henan Great Flood, one can “evaluates” how evil the CCP can be. Just by looking at this incident, people who understand the nature of this regime should not be surprised that it is capable of doing some utter-evil act, such as deliberately releasing the virus from it’s own military lab and try to destroy the world’s economy and try to take over the leading position itself, no matter how many people die in the process, because from the CCP’s perspective, human lives worth absolutely nothing.
As long as the CCP exists on this planet, disaster like this will keep happening in the future. No one will be safe, regardless of nationality.

Biden Era Olympic Size Embarrassment

Biden Era Olympic Size Embarrassment

I saw two headlines regarding the Olympics that should embarrass Leftists in America. Only they are too stupid to feel embarrassment or shame.

The first headline came from Axios and read, “China wins first gold of Tokyo Olympics.”
No surprise there for anybody paying attention to world affairs. The coup against Trump all but guaranteed America’s poor performance in the Olympics, and life as we know it. Trump challenged China; Biden sold out to China. Yes, it’s that simple. With Biden at the helm, China rules the world. So I expected China to win the first gold medal. And many of us know that China will upstage Americans in many events. That’s because China isn’t focused on Leftist nonsense like global climate change or critical race theory. The Chinese have one goal: world domination.
So I wasn’t surprised to see the next headline from The Hill which read, “Team USA gets no medals to open Summer Olympics for first time in decades.”

Trending: Hannity Won’t Last a Year at Fox News

Here is an excerpt from the article:
Team USA athletes suffered multiple upset losses in the first official day of competition at the Tokyo Olympics on Saturday, the first time in decades the U.S. has walked away with no medals on Day 1 of the Summer Games.
A total of 11 gold medals were given out Saturday for events in archery, cycling, fencing, judo, air rifle and pistol shooting, taekwondo, and weightlifting . However, the U.S. athletes did not receive gold, silver or bronze in any of the events Saturday.
Olympic historian Bill Mallon  pointed out that this was the first time the U.S. did not get any medals on Day 1 of the Summer Olympics since Munich in 1972, though Team USA also failed to medal on the first day of the Winter Olympics in 2018.
Winter Olympics don’t count; Summer Olympics matter. And the U.S. must go back 5 decades to experience such an embarrassment.
Keep in mind, our embarrassment decades before occurred during the era of Soviet doping. So at least our athletes had a valid excuse.

The article goes on to mention China winning the first goal.
China won the first gold medal of the Tokyo Games on Saturday with a victory from Yang Qian in the 10-meter air rifle competition.
USA Today reported that Yang was able to edge out the Russian Olympic Committee’s Anastasiia Galashina, with Switzerland’s Nina Christen taking the bronze.
Ironically, an American who didn’t medal in the air rifle competition was expected to.
Mary Tucker, the American competing in the event, who is ranked No. 2 in the world, had a series of bad shots in the final on Saturday, causing her to ultimately place sixth.
Apparently everybody doesn’t get a trophy? But disappointment didn’t stop there.
The top U.S. athletes in archery also experienced upset defeats Saturday, with No. 2 seed Brady Ellison and Mackenzie Brown losing 5-4 to Indonesia in a shootout in the first round at Yumenoshima Park.
Yes, another #2 didn’t medal. To all this disappointment, I’d like to know where is Dominion Voting Systems when we need them!?

REMINDER: Biden, Psaki, MSM, Democrats, All Pushed ‘Russian Bounty’ Hoax Now Confirmed Fake

REMINDER: Biden, Psaki, MSM, Democrats, All Pushed ‘Russian Bounty’ Hoax Now Confirmed Fake

A few months before the 2020 Presidential election, politicians, mainstream news outlets, other Democrats pushed a fake story about Russian officials secretly placing bounties on the heads of American soldiers. This has since then been debunked, but that didn’t stop them from pushing the false narrative.
Many Americans recall reports that Russia was placing bounties on the heads of US soldiers, resulting in outcry from pundits and politicians during the 2020 Presidential campaign. Reports suggested that the Russians were paying the Taliban to kill Americans. The New York Times reported “American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there, according to officials briefed on the matter.”

Since then, it has been made clear that the stories was false, and the news organizations responsible for disseminating the false information have had to correct their reports. Despite President Donald Trump calling the story “fake news,” and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany telling Americans that the intelligence community did not have much confidence in the information, the Washington Post gave the Presidents denial “4 Pinocchios.”

On April 15, 2021, the Washington Post updated their “Four Pinocchios” article to add that the “Biden administration officials disclosed that the U.S. intelligence community has “low to moderate confidence” in earlier reports that Russian intelligence officers placed bounties on U.S. troops.” The New York Times would also admit that the intelligence community assessed “with low to moderate confidence that Russian intelligence officers sought to encourage Taliban attacks against U.S. and coalition personnel in Afghanistan in 2019, and perhaps earlier, including through financial incentives and compensation.” In July, the top general of U.S. Central Command said that he couldn’t “find that there was a causative link” to the intelligence, adding that “there just there wasn’t enough there.”
Despite the facts, mainstream news figures and politicians continued to push the false information to the American people. Even Biden White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tweeted “taking a moment to re-up the fact that @realDonaldTrump knew about Russia offering bounties to Taliban to take out US troops in Afghanistan and still defends Putin. his undervaluing contribution of US troops not just horrific–but also dangerous.” Joe Biden himself pushed the lie during a debate with President Trump. Shortly after the debate, former President Barack Obama tweeted about the fake story as if it wasn’t misinformation. 
In spite of this, Joe Biden continued telling the bounties story, charging during a debate with Donald Trump that “I don’t understand why this President is unwilling to take on Putin when he’s actually paying bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan.” Barack Obama, a few days later, thundered: “When Russia puts bounties on the heads of our soldiers in Afghanistan, the commander-in-chief can’t be MIA: missing in action”

2020 Election Security Procedures Violated – Why The County Will Not Provide Routers, Splunk Logs, Fobs – INDICT THE SUPERVISORS!

2020 Election Security Procedures Violated – Why The County Will Not Provide Routers, Splunk Logs, Fobs – INDICT THE SUPERVISORS!

Maricopa County still has not provided answers or complied with the Arizona Senate subpoenas after the earth-shattering hearing last Wednesday.
One of the major concerns presented by audit officials surrounded the administrative account passwords and the missing event logs that were deleted by 37,646 consecutive login queries in one day.
Every election Administrator account, no matter the user, all have the same password.
The system only has 8 users which shows that somebody ran a script with over 37,000 queries and deleted the election security logs prior to February 5th.
The Gateway Pundit reported on these ‘worst in class’ IT actions and deliberate subterfuge of an election system.
Cyber Ninjas Found So Many Issues with the Voting Machines and Processes in Maricopa County It’s a Wonder the Previous Auditors Didn’t Find These Issues Too

We don’t know where the script came from because Maricopa County refuses to comply with Arizona Senate subpoenas.
The Senate needs routers, splunk logs, and iButton fobs to see how the systems were configured, if they were connected or modemed, and who did what.
If all passwords are the same, anybody who knows the password can sign into any account, therefore we can’t even trace actions to a specific user.
These passwords also have not been changed since Dominion software was installed in 2019. We don’t know who else had access to these machines.
This was a direct violation of the Arizona Secretary of State Election Procedures Manual that says,
passwords must: be changed on a regular basis and may not be a vendor-supplied password
Page 96: Arizona Secretary of State Elections Procedures Manual
The manual also states that systems may not be connected to the internet, communications devices, or any external network (except for e-pollbooks).

The image above, from the description of Dominion ICP Machines, shows that they have wireless network capabilities. Why do we use systems that can connect to the internet?

Hannity Won’t Last a Year at Fox News

Hannity Won’t Last a Year at Fox News

Fox News host and media juggernaut Sean Hannity surprised a lot of people recently. He made a CLM recently: a career-limiting move.
Certainly Hannity survived the zombie apocalypse, post-Roger Ailes. The new management at Fox News proved to be more Left than Right, yet Hannity hung in there. Most likely due to Hannity’s “white bread” approach to conservatism.
That’s not to say that Hannity isn’t a conservative; he is. But his approach to his shows became very predictable. And the demise (coup) of Trump brought about the demise of Hannity.
His show slipped from the top spot at Fox News to “among” the top spots. Now Hannity can’t compete with Tucker Carlson. Over the years since my firing from Fox News, many people commented to me about the shows, and here are the prevailing thoughts.

Trending: CA Gov. Newsom Finally on Chopping Block? Dems QUAKE!

(1) I pretty much stopped watching Fox News (after they fired you),
(2) I do like Tucker, and

(3) Hannity is boring.
Ok, I added that part, “after they fired” you.
But people did say that, along with “after they hired Donna Brazile”, as well as other questionable personnel changes. But most people abandoned Fox News because they noted the new agenda. And in that area, Hannity didn’t disappoint.

In what appears to be a body-swap with Geraldo Rivera, Hannity devoted a recent segment of his show to the Wuflu.
On the show, Hannity begged viewers to take a Wuflu vaccine. Ironically, one of his guests had a medical condition that occurred because of another vaccine.

In speaking of the decision by a federal judge to allow the vaccine mandate for Indiana University, Hannity commented:

“I believe in the science of vaccination. Just like we’ve been saying, please take COVID seriously.”
“You also have a right to medical privacy, and doctor-patient confidentiality is also important. And it absolutely makes sense for many Americans to get vaccinated. I believe in science, I believe in the science of vaccination.”
The “science?” The science of lies about the number of people actually contracted Wuflu versus the actual number of deaths? And what of the science of all the deaths and other life-long maladies caused by vaccines for which there are no repercussions to adverse affects?
Hannity would later introduce Dr. Saphier noting her “pro-science” and “pro-vaccine science,” to lend credibility to his Draconian pro-Wuflu vaccine farce. Because the “science” Hannity speaks of is mostly made up. In fact, the science supports those of us who choose not to get the “death poke.”
Biden claims that only the unvaccinated face the “scamdemic” of Wuflu. And like most “vaxxers” the man lies about the statistic.

“We have a pandemic for those who haven’t gotten a vaccination,” President Biden says at CNN’s live town hall amid rising Covid cases. “So it’s gigantically important that…we all act like Americans who care about our fellow Americans” https://t.co/pP0y7ug3He #BidenTownHall pic.twitter.com/lIAiDVSSn3
— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) July 22, 2021

Joey Demento showcased typical Leftists scare tactics in that town hall. And Hannity joins Biden as part of the problem.
The UK reported that 40 percent of the hospitalizations from Wuflu come from, wait for it…the vaccinated. That one data point flies in the face of what Captain Demento told the American people.
And what of the 34 million (CDC reported) Americans who got Wuflu and remain alive? The actual number is far greater, but the CDC stopped counting.
Note that Biden happily gave the new number of people who died from Wuflu, but he won’t tell you that they represent less than one percent of the people who got it. And if you’re waiting for Joey Demento’s team to discuss the side-effects of these vaccines and report REAL figures, don’t hold your breath.
As for Hannity, he brought recent high school graduate Olivia Sandor on his show. She will no longer attend Brigham Young University in Hawaii after the Mormon college denied her request for a medical exemption from its WuFlu vaccine mandate.
Sandor opted out of the vaccine because she doesn’t need it, and the vaccine could trigger her underlying medical issue.
Yes, after hearing Sandor share her story, Fox News medical analyst Nicole Saphier appeared to criticize her for deciding not to get vaccinated. Saphier did this knowing that Sandor suffers from Guillain-Barre syndrome, a bona fide side-effect of one of the Wuflu vaccines.
“I would say for Olivia, while I understand the impetus behind not wanting to get vaccinated, as long as she continues to protect herself,” Saphier said, she should be OK. She then added that Sandor should also be worried about getting the coronavirus.
Saphier then explained that she did not know of any current coronavirus vaccines causing Guillain-Barre Syndrome but did appear to defend Sandor’s decision.
A Fox News medical expert that doesn’t know what the FDA and CDC admit?
Apparently Hannity isn’t the only pro-vaxxer on Fox News.
Jenna Ellis, an acquaintance of mine and legal adviser to former President Donald Trump, questioned why Fox News had begun pushing vaccination. She tweeted:
Why are multiple Fox hosts suddenly devoting entire segments today begging people to take the vaccine?
You’d think the Murdochs just acquired Pfizer.

[Miles Perspective] Flooding in Henan Province is a Manmade Disaster

[Miles Perspective] Flooding in Henan Province is a Manmade Disaster

Translated by billwilliam [GT/Authentic Writing Team]Edited by Shifter
(Photo by STR/AFP via Getty Images)
During his live broadcast on July 22 and 23, Mr. Miles Guo revealed that the recent severe flooding in Henan Province is a manmade disaster. The Communist Chinese government’s inaction and negligence contribute to enormous death toll by the flood. Yet the CCP regime continues to spread propaganda to deflect blames.
The CCP government should be convicted of negligence during the flood. The Henan Provincial Meteorological Station forecasted heavy rainstorm one week before the disaster, but the CCP government took no action to prevent damages. The residents of Zhengzhou City received no prior warning about flooding risks, and the government failed to shut down schools, to ask people to stay at home, or to close subway systems. Zhengzhou’s subway remained in operation during the flood, causing many passengers to drown in the underground tunnels.
According to Mr. Guo, the actual cause of the severe flooding is the deliberate discharge of water by reservoirs in Henan Province. The water reservoirs discharged water ahead of the heavy rain and thus inundated Henan Province with sudden waves of floodwater. Even the Xiaolangdi Dam over the Yellow River secretly discharged water and thus flooded areas like Xingyang City, Mangshan District in Zhengzhou, and other rural areas.
When parts of Zhengzhou City were already submerged under water, the CCP government again did nothing to save other neighboring regions. Xinxiang City could have minimized casualties if the government had taken actions to mitigate damages, yet the Xinxiang government only made a verbal announcement without evacuating residents of the city. Government officials only told their relatives to flee and abandoned other residents in the area.
Many rural villages were completely wiped by the flood. The CCP has an internal jargon calling such villages “mute villages” because all villagers are dead and can never speak up. The CCP has a policy to censor any information and to delete the records of such villages so that the outside world will never know about the devastation. Nobody (the central CCP government included) will ever know the true death toll of this flooding, since no bureaucrat cares or dares to tabulate the death tolls.
The CCP’s only strategy to combat natural disasters is to censor speech and to cover up the truth. Its sole purpose is to preserve the dictatorship’s rule while ignoring the common people’s sufferings and death. Mr. Guo heard from a journalist friend that the police in Henan Province threatened journalists not to report on the flooding. The CCP regime even cut off internet service for the common people to prevent the outside world from knowing the situation in Henan Province.
Government negligence and lack of transparency are problems that have plagued Communist China for decades. Most major cities in China lack any functional emergency sewage networks to divert water in case of flooding. In contrast, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, and even developing Asian countries like South Korea and Taiwan all have much better flood control systems underneath their major cities. Despite Communist China’s boasted economy, the CCP regime did nothing to provide safety to the Chinese people. According to Mr. Guo, the German government provided 5000 Euros in relief fund to each victim of the recent flooding in Europe. Just one county in Germany dispatched 1600 rubber inflatable boats and 2000 firefighting boats for rescues. In comparison, the CCP’s central government only provided 100 million RMB in disaster relief fund to Henan Province, which is equivalent to 1 RMB per person in a province of 100 million population.
Besides, the CCP regime now ridiculously tries to blame the flooding on the United States. Jin Canrong, Vice Dean of International Relations College in Renmin University and an infamous communist hawk, posted a Weibo message calling Henan’s heavy downpour the result of American “meteorological weapon attacks.” Chinese media also falsely claimed that Typhoon “Fireworks” (which is currently in the ocean approaching Taiwan) “remotely” affected the weather in Henan Province. The CCP regime made up preposterous lies to brainwash the Chinese people.
Image from Jin Chanrong’s Weibo post
Henan Province is now quickly descending into chaos, as the local people don’t have access to food or clean water. When the utility systems are damaged by the flood, some residents have to resort to collecting rainwater. Mr. Guo predicted this is just the beginning of a major humanitarian crisis in Henan Province. Because the CCP regime provided almost no disaster relief, the ensuing famine and infectious disease outbreak may kill more people. Mr. Guo advised people currently in Henan Province to flee the area if they can.

FLASHBACK: Remember that time Kayleigh McEnany told the press that WH COVID outbreaks were NONE of their BUSINESS?

Hey remember that time there was an outbreak of Covid at the White House thanks to the irresponsible behavior of a delegation of Republicans from Texas who were there to avoid a legislative session because as the minority party in the duly elected state government they couldn’t block votes any other way? And then reporters asked then-press secretary Kayleigh McEnany how many people at the White House had tested positive in this outbreak? And Kayleigh told them to piss off because it was none of their damn business and who the hell were they to question the almighty administration? And then the press got REALLY mad and they all called her out?
Yeah me neither because that never happened. But this did:

There will be no briefing room revolt. No hours of Jim Acosta about how refusing to answer this question puts DEMOCRACY ITSELF AT RISK like he would if it were the Trump White House.
We live in the age of hypocrites, and none are so hypocritical (or aged) as the cursed American press, who are more rightly called media because they don’t really do journalism they just put on their show.
Everything is just part of the big sham in the whole fake culture and society.

Proven Voter Fraud So Now What?

Proven Voter Fraud So Now What?

America is learning what we already know. Democrats cheated in the 2020 Presidential Election. Now they want to cover their tracks.
In one case, Dominion cited “human error” as their defense. The Times Leader reported:
Councilman Walter Griffith proposed the DA election investigation request, citing an on-screen ballot mislabeling error and other problems that caused many voters to be “disenfranchised and concerned about the integrity of the election process.”
It was unanimously approved by all 10 council members present, with Linda McClosky Houck absent.
County DA Sam Sanguedolce was not in attendance but said Tuesday night his office will investigate any allegations of potential criminal conduct relating to the May primary.
He said his predecessor, Stefanie Salavantis, created an Election Fraud Task Force that remains intact and will review anything forwarded to the office.
Dominion Voting Systems blamed “human error” for voting machines mislabeling Luzerne County Republican ballots in last week’s primary.
Republican ballots were mislabeled as Democrat ones on electronic screen at polling locations.
But Dominion says it wasn’t their fault.
“Dominion deeply regrets the confusion this error caused,” Nicole Nollette, the executive vice president of operations at Dominion said.
“These machines — their credibility is lost,” said Election Board member Missy Thomas on Monday. “The system is compromised.

Human error? Is that what Leftists call cheating these days?
But Luzerne County PA isn’t the only problem area for Democrats. The PA Department of State DECERTIFIED Fulton County’s voting machines!
In their effort to cover their asses, election officials in Fulton County PA admit that their voting machines were compromised. Clearly, they do this not to admit guilt, per se. Instead, they want to prevent a forensic audit, like the one happening in Maricopa County AZ.

Trending: CA Gov. Newsom Finally on Chopping Block? Dems QUAKE!

PA news site, WFMZ goes into detail on these developments.

The Pennsylvania Department of State decertified Fulton County’s voting machines on Wednesday after officials there participated in a third-party audit.
The voluntary probe came at the request of Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Gettysburg, who’s currently spearheading a larger effort to audit machines in Tioga, York and Philadelphia counties amid his ongoing campaign to ferret out fraudulent activity during the past two elections.

What will Democrats and their media attack dogs do, now that the truth comes out? And with no help from Democrats.
Remember how Democrats cried for transparency. And as you likely know, Democrats tell you what they DON’T want in pretending to want something.

As for PA, Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid admitted that their technology partners illegally accessed their Dominion voting machines at the beginning of 2021.
Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid said Wednesday she has “no other choice” after Fulton County officials confirmed that Wake Technology Services Inc. accessed its Dominion voting machines earlier this year, violating the state’s chain of custody provisions and other “strict limitations” designed to prevent tampering.
Trust me folks, the crime is easy to detect here. And I’m no criminologist, but I would be begin at Wake Technology.
They have NO reason to access the anti-tampering components of voting machines. Get one of them to admit their part and you will find a trail of Democrats.
As for Wake, they accessed the election database and system logs. And if that’s not enough, they were given the ability to file transfer data from USB drives. Sound familiar?
It should. Because that’s what voter integrity advocates have stated since the election results. That bad actors manipulated the USB data.
Degraffenreid said,
These actions were taken in a manner that was not transparent or bipartisan,” she said. “As a result of the access granted to Wake TSI, Fulton County’s certified system has been compromised and neither Fulton County; the vendor, Dominion Voting Systems; nor the Department of State can verify that the impacted components of Fulton County’s leased voting system are safe to use in future elections.”
And neither can any other crooked Democrat-controlled election site. They cheated. And now they are caught.

HE DID IT AGAIN: Biden Aggressively Asks Reporter If Americans Think He’s ‘Sucking The Blood Out Of Kids’

Joe Biden was answering questions from reporters by Marine One when he randomly asked them if Republicans think “we’re sucking the blood out of kids” in response to a question about defunding the police. This is the second time the President has randomly brought up the notion that he and Democrats suck out the blood of children.
While speaking to a group of reporters by Marine One, Joe Biden abruptly brought up “sucking the blood out of kids” again when asked a question about defunding the police. “We are not defunding the police, and have not,” Biden told the reporters, who responded by asking him “are there people in the Democratic Party who want to defund the police?” Rather than provide an answer to the question he was asked, Biden randomly asked the reporters, “are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?”

“I’m not sure,” the reporter said, only to repeat her first question about defunding the police as Biden began to walk away. The President ultimately did not answer her question.
This would not be the first time that Joe Biden has brought up sucking children’s blood. During a CNN Presidential Town Hall, Joe Biden made a strange statement denying that he and Democrats are hiding people and sucking blood out of children, as National File reported. “I sometimes get myself in trouble for what I’m about to say, not that I ever get in trouble,” Biden chuckled. “As you’ve heard me say before, no one ever doubts I mean what I say, the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. But all kidding aside, I have faith in the American people. I really do, to ultimately get to the right place, and by the way, many times Republicans are in the right place. I don’t mean that the Repub-it’s always a Democratic point of view, but some of this stuff, I mean Qanon,” Biden said.

The election fraud case sponsored by VoterGA.org and moving it’s way through a Henry County Court, having been pushed out of Fulton County, GA on procedural grounds, is attempting to move the coming ballot inspection of Fulton County mail-in ballots to a larger location.

Upon agreeing with Judge Amero to provide a large enough facility to conduct the audit, Fulton County did nothing of the sort, providing a room half the size needed. VoterGA has requested the audit be moved to the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.

Report: One of the world’s richest men directed $1 million toward ‘defund the police’ efforts

Report: One of the world’s richest men directed $1 million toward ‘defund the police’ efforts

The following editorial is written by a retired police officer and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

You just knew the socialist old goat had his hand in this.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, billionaire George Soros, still intent on literally destroying the United States of America, has emptied his deep pockets of $1 million in an effort to help Democrats defund the police.
That mantra cost the Democrats significantly in last year’s elections with the exception of the most important one, that being the presidency.
Oh, they were still able to keep the House and get control of the Senate—both by razor thin margins (the Senate is tied with Kamala Harris being the tie-breaking vote). But thinking you could push defunding the police as criminals ran rampant through the streets of American cities was a pretty bad idea.
The Beacon reports Soros gave the money to Color of Change PAC on May 14, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. This donation marks Soros’s largest political contribution thus far in the 2021 election cycle and his first personally to that PAC since 2016.
Democrats have recently, in an amusing display of sheer desperation, been trying to claim that it was Republicans—not them—who in fact defunded the police.
This of course came about as public opinion has turned wildly against Democrats in light of exploding crime across the country. Republicans have taken advantage, hammering the Democrats for their tone deaf and ill-timed move to decimate police departments.
The White House, led by chief propagandist Jen Psaki has tried to claim over the past couple of weeks that because Republicans voted against an omnibus spending bill loaded with more pork than a sausage factory, they had in fact voted to defund the police. This of course is ridiculous since some of the funds directed toward cities and states in the package could be used toward replenishing removed funds, but no moneys were specifically directed toward police.

So ridiculous and bizarre were the claims made by Psaki that even far-left state newspaper The Washington Post gave Psaki “three Pinocchio’s” for those claims earlier in July.

More extraordinary lying from Jen Psaki about Republicans wanting to defund the police. At least we have a reliable mainstream media to hold her to account! 🤡🤡🤡🤡

Color of Change calls itself the largest online racial justice group in the US and has been on the forefront of efforts to defund American police departments.
Last year, following the death of George Floyd while in police custody, along with the death of Breonna Taylor in a botched police raid, they have led an online campaign to defund the police.
The group has published an online petition which reads, “Invest in black communities. Defund the police.” The petition also calls for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm black people.”
Not sure if that includes failing public schools in urban areas, but it probably should.
Included in the PAC’s efforts included supporting the Minneapolis City Council in their plan to divert funds dedicated to the Minneapolis Police Department after Floyd’s death from a combination of fentanyl and methamphetamine intoxication, a heart condition, and apparent positional asphyxia.
Officer Derek Chauvin was convicted on murder and manslaughter charges in his death, which is currently under appeal.

In supporting the city council’s efforts, Color of Change president Rashad Robinson said in a statement:
“Policing is a violent institution that must end. We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.”
Perhaps Robinson should shake down Soros for more of his money. A few billion here and there would certainly help with the group’s efforts to “care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable.”
Calling to end policing in the midst of a historic crime wave is probably not a good way to get people over to your cause.
Last month, Malachi Robinson, a campaign director for the group told a Brooklyn newspaper the group was calling for “no more police and no more mass incarceration.”
“We’re saying we need to invest in our communities and the things that keep our communities really safe.”
Malachi, you might want to talk to the dozens of people who are shot in Chicago every weekend. They may have something to say about “keep[ing] our communities really safe.”

The Free Beacon said they reached out to Color of Change for comment, however they didn’t respond.
According to FEC documents, Soros’s contribution to the PAC was their largest realized so far this year. The next largest contribution came from Karla Juvetson, a prominent Democratic Party bundler who donated $10,000.
Color of Change took in over $1.9 million in the six months preceding the filing and spent over $1.8 million. Approximately $291,000 of that amount went to the charity for administration expenses and to cover payroll taxes, FEC filings indicated.
In 2019, Soros funneled more than $1 million to Color of Change through Open Society Foundations, another one of Soros’s money channeling operations. Free Beacon also reached out to Open Society Foundations for comment, however they too did not respond.

WASHINGTON, DC- Even the Biden suck up Washington Post isn’t falling for the latest propaganda emanating from the White House and its Democrat sycophants.
The latest claim by White House propagandist Jen Psaki managed to earn “Three Pinocchio’s” from the far-left Post, that of course being her claim that it is Republicans, not Democrats who support defunding the police, according to a New York Post article.
Over the past week or two, Democrats including Psaki, Biden adviser Cedric Richmond and others have made the absurd and easily debunked claim that it was Republicans who were defunding the police.

Hey Siri, what is gaslighting? https://t.co/M83bElCChT
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 28, 2021

Their argument? Because the Republicans opposed the pork-laden “American Rescue Plan” a few months back, that translated to them supporting defunding of police. That argument is as hollow as it is brain-dead.
Nowhere in the American Rescue Plan is funding of police departments specifically mentioned. While the boondoggle included some $350 billion in aid to states and cities, there was no mention of any portion of that being earmarked for police departments.
In fact, a significant portion of the moneys received in states such as California and New York were directed toward filling deficits in public employee pension plans, which in some cases were billions of dollars in debt.
Their argument comes after Biden said last month that in light of the Biden crime wave overtaking American cities, some of the aid could be directed toward combating rising crime, including the hiring of additional police officers.
In an article in the Post, Salvador Rizzo wrote: “Although Republicans all opposed Biden’s coronavirus relief package, no one voted to cut, or defund, anything,” in the piece, entitled: “The White House’s slipshod claim that Republicans are defunding the police.”
“Rather Democrats proposed $350 billion in emergency funds for state and local governments, and Republicans voted against those extra funds,” Rizzo added. “That’s not a reduction.”
The article then addressed that the above funds were earmarked as “state and local aid,” and there was “no guarantee that police would get a slice of the pie.”
“[V]oting against a one-time infusion of cash is not the same as voting to cut funding, so there is little basis to claim that Republicans are trying to ‘defund the police,’” he finished.
Republicans have seized upon Psaki and Richmond’s claims, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slamming the claim in a Fox News op-ed, referring to it as a “calculated, cynical lie.”
“For them to come out and claim that it’s Republicans who want to defund the police, that’s like an arsonist showing up at the fire and blaming the firemen,” Cruz said. “That’s like the Chinese blaming the Americans for the Wuhan virus. That’s like OJ [Simpson] saying he’s gonna help find the real killer.”

Cruz was responding to Psaki’s statement on June 23 when she said, “That was voted into law by Democrats just a couple months ago. Some might say that the other party was for defunding the police; I’ll let others say that but that’s a piece.”
When questioned about her claim, Psaki wasn’t able to name one single Republican who said they wanted to “defund” the police:

MUST WATCH: @PressSec CANNOT name a single Republican who has ever said they wanted to Defund the Police. pic.twitter.com/xImrTK8RbU
— House Republicans (@HouseGOP) June 30, 2021

On June 27 on Fox News, Richmond told the outlet, “…the truth is, they [Republicans] defunded the police:”
“Let’s talk about who defunded the police. When we were in Congress last year trying to pass…an emergency relief plan for cities that were cash-strapped and laying off police and firefighters, it was the Republicans who objected to it. And in fact, they didn’t get funding until the American Rescue Plan, which, our plan allowed state and local governments to replenish their police departments and do the other things that are needed. So look, Republicans are very good at staying on talking points of who says, ‘defund the police,’ but the truth is, they defunded the police.”
Baghdad Bob, the infamous Iraqi propagandists from Operation Desert Storm would be proud of Psaki and Richmond.
Rizzo did find a little bit of cover for the administration when they pointed out Republicans had supported President Trump’s proposal to remove $170 million from the Justice Department’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program.
“Psaki and the White House are on more solid ground by framing this talking point in terms of the COPS program…That’s the only thing keeping this talking point from being a ‘Four Pinocchio’ claim,” Rizzo wrote.
For those unfamiliar, the Post uses a fact-checking rubric where so-called “Pinocchio’s” are assigned for claims which contain “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions.” They are given on a scale of one to four, with four being the most severe.
Breitbart outlined a number of times where Democrats have engaged in anti-police rhetoric or openly called to defund the police. Law Enforcement Today recently also outlined a number of times where Democrats called to defund the police. More on that below.
Among those who called to defund the police, according to Breitbart:

Joe Biden- supported “reallocating police resources” during the campaign
Kamala Harris- said “I applaud Eric Garcetti” for defunding Los Angeles police, adding “we have to reimagine public safety” while discussing police presence in cities and towns. “Reimagine” is code word for defund
Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta- said officials needed to listen to calls to “decrease police budgets and the scope, role, and responsibility of police in our lives
Then Boston mayor and current Labor Secretary Marty Walsh- proposed budget diverting funding from the Boston PD
Biden Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clark- wrote an op-ed in Newsweek in 2020 supporting defunding the police
Val Demings (D-FL), a former police officer- Minneapolis City council was “very thoughtful” for voting to dismantle their police department
A panelist at the Democratic National Convention advocated defunding the police
Ilhan Omar (D-MN)- advocated dismantling the Minneapolis Police Department
Maxine Waters (C-CA)- told protesters to “get more confrontational” with police

There are far more examples of Democrats—not Republicans—openly advocating for defunding and/or dismantling police.
The definition of “spin”: “give (a news story or other material) a particular interpretation, especially a favorable one.
Jen Psaki is the queen of spin. What was it Obama said? “You can put lipstick on a pig and it’s still a pig.” Psaki tries to put lipstick on Democrats’ “pig” every day.

The following editorial is written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

USA- The dystopian novel “1984,” written by George Orwell was truly a prophetic piece of literature. We are currently seeing portions of that book play out in real life.
Let’s explain a bit about the book before we get into the most recent example of truth being stranger than fiction, in this case the latest assertion by Democrats that it is Republicans—not they—who are defunding the police. More on that shortly.
In his book, Orwell talked about a government, not unlike what we currently have, which engages in a couple different forms of mind control:
Newspeak which was invented by the government in the novel to suppress the ability to develop treasonous (or anti-government, if you will) ideas by the people, and;
Doublethink, a product of newspeak in which one believes two contradictory statements to be true at the same time or saying one thing and meaning another.
In 1984, examples include something called the Ministry of Truth, which erases history and disseminates lies. The Ministry of Peace creates war, and the Ministry of Love has a place where there is torture. In other words, there are a lot of euphemisms and contradictions.
Those two philosophies outlined in 1984 have morphed into a single word called doublespeak. The Canada Free Press refers to it as “the language of opposites. Up is down and down is up.”
The outlet defines the two this way:
“Newspeak is a method of controlling thought through language—it is the language of fake news. Doublethink is when a person accepts two mutually contradictory thoughts as correct without being aware or troubled by the glaring contradiction between them.”
They define doublespeak as language that “deliberately obscures, distorts, disguises, or reverses the meaning of words to manipulate public opinion.”
That brings us to the defund the police narrative. Over the past year, we have clearly heard Democrats—not Republicans continually calling to defund the police.
Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley, Omar, Tlaib—the list goes on. A simple Internet search finds dozens of examples of Democrats demanding defunding of the police.
Some have not only demanded police be defunded but have also asked for them to be disbanded.
Polls have come out that show “defund the police” is wildly unpopular across nearly all demographics—whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians—and we know that the only thing Democrats are concerned about is pandering and the next election.
So all of a sudden, in the past week or so, Democrats have suddenly discovered that it is they, not Republicans who support the police.
Their logic? Buried inside the so-called American Rescue Plan was money for cities and towns to do with as they pleased. There was no specific earmark for law enforcement.
And none of the cities and states who received the funding said they would earmark funds toward law enforcement.
Republicans knew that the money designated for states and cities in primarily blue areas was being used to pay off massive debt incurred by public employee pensions.
And they decided that having the fiscally responsible portion of the United States on the hook for blue states blowing their financial resources on a load of garbage while ignoring their pension obligations wasn’t going to fly. So they voted no.
Democrats have suddenly seized on that fact to make the unbelievably absurd claim that by virtue of voting no, the Republicans have therefore decided to defund the police.
And of course, the Praetorian Guard media has jumped right on board with the Democrats as would be expected.
According to the Media Research Center (MRC), this past week, left-wing MSNBC hack Stephanie Ruhle had DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison on her program. She repeated the same line of BS spouted by White House Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki, who got up at the podium last week and made the same absurd claim about Republicans defunding police.

It must be Opposite Day at the White House.https://t.co/gvATScRbLK

When Psaki was pressed by Fox News’ Peter Doocy to name one Republican who specifically said they wanted to defund the police, she of course could not name one. 

Jen Psaki couldn’t name one Republican who wanted to defund police when asked to back up her wild and untrue claims that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund police. https://t.co/yoFA7F1pBu

Ruhle became panicked when talking about the New York City mayor’s race, where former NYPD officer Eric Adams was leading the Democratic primary (although now that’s been called into question by more election malfeasance).
Ruhle is worried that the Democrat’s “messaging on crime and law enforcement” is not resonating with voters. Adams is (obviously) against defunding the police.

“He said that the Democrat party needs to pay attention to New York or you’re going to be in trouble. How do you have a big tent party without turning off voters that you need to win?” she whined.
This is when Harrison joined the conga line of Democrats with short memories, making the same ludicrous argument that Republicans supported defunding the police because they voted no on the Biden boondoggle.
“The Republican Party likes to talk a lot. Right now they are talking about defunding the police. But who really is defunding the police? In the American Rescue Plan, Stephanie, we have $350 billion to go to our cities and many of those cities under the authority of President Biden are using those resources to fund their police departments. And guess what, not one Republican—not one Republican voted for it,” Harrison said. 
Ruhle tripped over her tongue to quickly agree with Harrison, then rotated to worrying how Democrats would ever convince Americans to believe that when Democrats said defund the police, they didn’t really mean defund the police.
Doublespeak, got it? Defunding the police, Ruhle said means “enhance and empower law enforcement.”
“I’m with you. But how are you going to convince the American people of that? Right? You have Republicans that are not supporting a commission on this insurrection which is all about law and order.
But Republicans have co-opted this idea that defund the police means wiping out police forces when what it really does is enhance and empower law enforcement. But you and I both know that that message is not translating correctly across a lot of American homes.” [emphasis added]
Ahh. So because Republicans aren’t buying into the Democrat hysteria that an unarmed group of people who basically committed trespass was an insurrection, suddenly they don’t support law and order? Got it.
Harrison then went on to babble about how the plans of Biden and the Democrats was “working,” how they were going to use planes flying over beaches and ice cream trucks talking about shots and all that good stuff.
They think that as Americans are paying an extra dollar plus per gallon for gas and the price of everything they buy is climbing, they can somehow convince the American people that their leftist policies are working.
Hopefully, they’re going into the high-crime areas of New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Francisco and dozens of other high-crime Democrat cities, where police HAVE been defunded by Democrats and where crime is spiraling out of control and try to spread their BS there.
Maybe they can convince people who have buried their babies and children that their defund the police mantra doesn’t mean defund the police. Up is down, down is up. Doublespeak—the Democrats are experts at it.

Law Enforcement Today has reported extensively on Democrat rhetoric about defunding the police. In case you missed it, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
WASHINGTON, DC- This week, Democrats, including White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki have laughably made the argument that despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, it is Republicans—not Democrats—who are pushing to defund the police.
This assertion came about as statistics have shown a record increase in all crimes, but especially violent crimes in Democrat-run cities. Democrats are clearly trying to deflect blame away from them. 
 [embedded content]
Breitbart reports that the fantasy of Republican-advocated defund the police started on Sunday, when Biden advisor Cedric Richmond attempted to pin the blame for the defund the police mantra on Republicans while appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.
 [embedded content]
“Let’s talk about who defunded the police. When we were in Congress last year trying to pass a rescue plan—I’m sorry not the rescue plan but an emergency relief plan for cities that were cash-strapped and laying off police and firefighters—it was the Republicans who objected to it.
And in fact, they didn’t get funding until the American Rescue Plan, which our plan allowed state and local governments to replenish their police departments and do the other things that are needed.
“So look, Republicans are very good at staying on talking points of who says defund the police, but the truth is, they defunded the police, we funded crime intervention, and a whole bunch of other things.”
Ironically, last year appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation, Richmond said the “defund the police” mantra cost Democrats seats in November’s election. 
 [embedded content]
Richmond should probably get his story straight. 
This is of course absurd on its face. There are innumerable documented cases where Democrats talked about “defunding” or “reimagining” the police.
Also, the reason Republicans voted against the American Rescue Plan was the fact that the money directed to cities was being used to plug enormous deficits brought on by the cities through reckless spending.
Some of them, such as Chicago and Los Angeles had huge deficits due to unfunded pension obligations for public employee pensions.
One thing about Democrats is you know when they have received their talking points or marching orders because you hear it from the conga line of politicians and the mainstream media.
Such is the case with the sudden realization that it was the Republicans, not Democrats who have been parroting “defund the police” for over a year.

In a White House press conference on Monday, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Psaki about Richmond’s comments and whether she agreed with his assessment:
 [embedded content]
“Well, the president did mention that the American Rescue Plan, the state and local funding, something that was supported by the president, a lot of Democrats who supported and voted for the bill, could help ensure local cops were kept on the beat in communities across the country.
As you know, [it] didn’t receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat.”
A fact check easily found the comments by both Richmond and Psaki were lies.
“Although the White House did use the talking point that broad grants to localities could be used to help police departments and first responders, the American Rescue Plan did not include specific funding to hire more police officers,” Breitbart News said.

What’s more, the facts are clear, that being that Democrats have been leading the charge in defunding the police for over a year and that has led to a significant increase in crime in America’s largest cities—all run by Democrats.
Here, in no particular order are the Democrat-run cities which have drastically gutted their police department budgets in the past year:

New York: Last June, Mayor Bill de Blasio slashed $1 billion from the NYPD budget, despite a spike in shootings and other violent crime in the wake of Floyd’s death in Minneapolis and the related violent riots which broke out in the aftermath. Recently, de Blasio redirected $92 million back to the NYPD to build a new precinct which was cut from last year’s budget. Between January 1 thru May 23 this year, there have been 531 shootings in the city, an increase from 295 during the same period last year, according to Breitbart.
Philadelphia: Last year, the “City of Brotherly Love” slashed $33 million from the police department; in response the city is now “on pace to have one of its deadliest years on record,” according to NBC10 Philadelphia.Philly is also home to Larry Krasner, one of the “progressive” neo-Marxist, soft-on-crime district attorneys who has turned the justice system in the city into a revolving door.
Washington, DC: Last June, the DC city council said they would cut $15 million from the police budget. In May, the Washington Post said homicides in the city increased 38 percent compared to the same time period in 2020.
Baltimore: Like it’s other Democrat-run counterparts, Baltimore cut $22 million from the police budget, according to the Baltimore Sun reporting last June, police commissioner Michael Harrison said he wanted to “see more boots on the ground,” and requested additional police department funding in light of the “surge in violent crime in cities across the country, as reported by The Hill. 
Los Angeles: Last year, mayor Eric Garcetti oversaw a $150 million cut in the LAPD budget last year; this year he’s seeking to restore $50 million of that, according to Breitbart, amidst a spike in crime in that city.
Minneapolis: Last June 12, the Minneapolis city council voted unanimously to disband that city’s police department, as reported by Breitbart. Just over one year later, the city council voted to direct $5 million to pay for police overtime.
“MPD was down to 632 active officers through the end of May. That’s a 25 percent drop from 845 police in 2020. As of last week, 60 officers are on disability leave,” according to CBS Minnesota.“Deputy Chief Erick Fos told the committee that the number of gunshot victims has more than doubled from this point last year to this year, increasing from 116 to 259. Homicides have increased by 81 percent over the same time period.”

Seattle: The Seattle city council last August approved measures to reduce the police department by around 100 officers, either through layoffs or attrition.
Portland: Last June, city commissioners approved a cut of nearly $!6 million from the police budget. Appearing on NBC Nightly News this year, Daryl Turner, Executive Director of the Portland Police Association said that morale in the PPB is “as bad as it’s ever been,” even as the city is also seeing an explosion in violent crime.

Not only has Democrat-run cities’ support to “defund the police” been seen in how they are handling public safety funding, but also in their words:

Joe Biden supported “reallocating police resources” during his campaign
Kamala Harris said “I applaud Eric Garcetti” for defunding the LAPD, while saying “we have to reimagine public safety” as she discussed lowering police presence in communities
Biden’s Associate Attorney General, Vanita Gupta said local officials need to “decrease police budgets and the scope, role, and responsibility of police in our lives.”
Biden’s Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh, then mayor of Boston proposed a budget diverting funding from the Boston PD
Biden’s Assistant Attorney General and critical race theory proponent Kristen Clarke wrote an op-ed for Newsweek last year supporting efforts to “defund the police.”
Rep Val Demings (D-FL), ironically a former police officer called the decision of the Minneapolis City Council to “defund the police” “very thoughtful.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and fellow House Democrats refused to criticize the Minneapolis City Council for defunding the police; Pelosi also referred to federal law enforcement officers assigned to protect the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon as “stormtroopers.”
Maxine Waters (D-CA) told protestors to “get more confrontational” with police
Ilhan Omar (D-MN) called for dismantling the Minneapolis PD
Cori Bush (D-MO) called to defund the police after she was elected to Congress
House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) compared federal law enforcement to Nazi Gestapo

Those are but a few examples of Democrats’ hue and cry to defund the police. An attempt was made to find a Republican member of Congress calling to defund the police, but none was found.
Even in the midst of a clear explosion of crime across the US, Democrats refuse to recognize what is occurring; a number of Democrats are still calling to defund the police, many despite the fact that they have themselves spent tens of thousands of dollars on their own security.
In fact, some of them, including members of the “squad” voted present during a vote a few months back, which would have resulted in the defeat of a $2 billion cut in security for the Capitol. That included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). Still they’re all for defunding the police for their voters.
Ocasio-Cortez continues calls to reallocate resources away from police and refers to concern over the current crime wave as “hysteria.”
Pressley meanwhile said she still supports defunding the police.
Meanwhile, the only member of the squad who (allegedly) has testosterone, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) has demanded police be defunded even while requesting additional police protection for himself.
Unfortunately for Democrats, the internet is forever, and the truth is there for all to see. A majority of the American people know who supports the police and who does not. Democrats do not.

Mississippi Attorney General Tells Supreme Court to Overturn Roe, Let States Ban Abortions

Mississippi Attorney General Tells Supreme Court to Overturn Roe, Let States Ban Abortions

Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch has filed a brief with the Supreme Court asking it to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect babies from abortions.
The Supreme Court agreed Monday to hold a hearing on a major abortion case that could limit Roe v. Wade and protect babies from late-term abortions.  The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a law that bans killing babies in abortions after 15 weeks.
Today, Fitch filed her brief with the Supreme Court, defending the right of the people to pass laws that protect life and women’s health and address legitimate interests of the State.
“There are those who would like to believe that Roe v. Wade settled the issue of abortion once and for all,” said Attorney General Fitch. “But all it did was establish a special-rules regime for abortion jurisprudence that has left these cases out of step with other Court decisions and neutral principles of law applied by the Court. As a result, state legislatures, and the people they represent, have lacked clarity in passing laws to protect legitimate public interests, and artificial guideposts have stunted important public debate on how we, as a society, care for the dignity of women and their children. It is time for the Court to set this right and return this political debate to the political branches of government.”
As noted in the brief, rather than settle the discord established by Roe, Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey made matters worse. “Casey recognized that Roe’s disregard for state interests had to be abandoned…. Casey tried to improve upon Roe by replacing strict scrutiny with the undue-burden  standard. But that standard too defeats important state interests rather than accounts for them.”
The brief continues, “The only workable approach to accommodating the competing interests here is to return the matter to ‘legislators, not  judges.’…The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
“With this brief, we’re simply asking the Court to affirm the right of the people to protect their legitimate interests and to provide clarity on how they may do so,” said Fitch.

In the nearly 50 years since Roe, science and society have marched forward, she said. During this time, the viability marker has moved from 28 weeks to 22 weeks in some cases, and science will only continue to advance.
“Legislatures should be able to respond to those advances, which they cannot do in the face of flawed precedents that are anchored to decades-stale views of  life and health,” the brief reasons.
The Attorney General asks the Court to consider the policy and cultural shifts that have occurred in the 30-50 years since Roe and Casey and argues that the precedent set in these cases, “shackle states to a view of facts that is decades out of date.”
The brief counters Casey, stating, “Many laws (largely post-dating Roe) protect equal opportunity—including prohibitions on sex and pregnancy discrimination in employment, guarantees of employment leave for pregnancy and birth, and support to offset the costs of childcare for working mothers…. Casey gives no good reason to believe that decades of advances for women rest on Roe, and evidence is to the contrary.”
“A lot has changed in five decades,” continued Fitch. “In 1973, there was little support for women who wanted a full family life and a successful career. Maternity leave was rare. Paternity leave was unheard of. The gold standard for professional success was a 9-to-5 with a corner office. The flexibility of the gig economy was a fairy tale. In these last fifty years, women have carved their own way to achieving a better balance for success in their professional and personal lives. By returning the matter of abortion policy to state legislatures, we allow a stunted debate on how we support women to flourish. It is time for the Court to let go of its hold on this important debate.”
The 2018 Mississippi law prohibits abortions after 15 weeks except when there are risks to the life or physical health of the mother, or fatal fetal anomalies. Based on state health records, about 200 unborn babies between 15 and 20 weeks are aborted every year in Mississippi and the law would save their lives.
Fitch’s brief referred to the high court’s recent ruling on a Louisiana abortion regulation in June Medical Services v. Russo. She pointed out conflicting lower court rulings that cite the arguments in that case and asked the Supreme Court for clarification, the report states.
“This case remains an ideal vehicle to promptly resolve both that question and the first question presented—the contradictions in this Court’s decisions over use of ‘viability’ as a bright line for measuring pro-life legislation,” she wrote.

Mississippi’s law highlights a conflict between the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade and the court’s repeated affirmation in subsequent cases that states have a legitimate interest in limiting abortion and protecting “vulnerable and innocent life” from the moment of conception.
“Every human life is valuable, and Mississippi’s law is a commonsense step toward protecting unborn children and their mothers from the harms of late-term abortion,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Denise Harle. “The law protects the life of a baby who can already move around and kick in her mom’s womb—a child who has a heartbeat, can taste what her mom eats, and can experience pain. And the law also protects women, since late-term abortions grow increasingly dangerous to the mother’s health. Women and their children both deserve real health care; that’s why we’re glad the Supreme Court has decided to take up this matter.”
The state argues that “viability” is an arbitrary standard for determining when a state’s interests are sufficient to regulate, and that the Supreme Court has already recognized that the state has a legitimate interest in protecting the unborn infant and the health of the mother from the very beginning of pregnancy.
“The Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that states are free to regulate late-term abortions,” said ADF Senior Counsel and Vice President of Appellate Advocacy John Bursch. “Thanks to amazing progress in scientific research and medical technology, the concept of ‘viability’ is an ever-moving target as younger children have survived and thrived after preterm birth. But ‘viability’ has never been a legitimate way to determine a developing infant’s dignity or to decide anybody’s legal existence. The high court should take this important opportunity to resolve the conflicts between its previous rulings and affirm the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law.”
Many states have pro-life laws that protect unborn children after 20-24 weeks of pregnancy, which is the most they are able to do considering the Supreme Court refuses to allow states to ban abortions prior to viability. Through this new case, Mississippi is challenging that precedent.
Polls consistently find strong public support for abortion restrictions after the first trimester. Gallup has been asking about the legality of abortions by trimester for decades. Its polls have found steady, strong opposition to abortions in the second and third trimesters.
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.
In a separate case, Mississippi also is fighting in court to defend its heartbeat law, which would protect almost all unborn babies from abortions in the state.
The Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion, and instead allowed abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.
There is more hope that the Supreme Court may consider overturning Roe, especially now that Justice Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed.

Judicial Watch Fights For Election Integrity on Capitol Hill

Judicial Watch Fights For Election Integrity on Capitol Hill

July 22, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

“Data, not pop culture nor hyperbole … tells the truth about ballot access in America.”
Judicial Watch remains front and center in the fight for clean elections. From the historic election integrity victory in LA County, to the current election-related lawsuits against Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Colorado, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton reminded Weekly Update viewers Friday that “Judicial Watch is on the ball and on the march in favor of the rule of law.” 
“We are facing a crisis,” Fitton explained. ”The Left … wants to severely restrict the abilities of the states to manage their own elections.” “They want to undo virtually every clean election law in this country,” he continued. “Under their agenda … they would ban all voter ID, impose ballot harvesting, and undermine the very notion of election integrity.” While these are concerning developments, Fitton reminded viewers that there is hope. “The Supreme Court issued a knockout blow to the Left’s tsunami of harassing lawsuits challenging virtually any effort by any state to modestly increase the security of elections and minimize the impact of voter fraud.” In fact, in response to the recent Supreme Court ruling, Fitton believes the Left has become “desperate to short circuit the efforts of states to implement security measures such as voter ID.” 
Ignoring the partisan fray, Judicial Watch has taken the issue directly to Congress. Testifying  before both the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties and the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Judicial Watch attorneys Robert Popper and Russell Nobile addressed the two houses of Congress on the importance of maintaining and protecting strong election security measures. As two former federal officials who were tasked with enforcing election integrity measures at the Department of Justice, Popper and Nobile used historical evidence to support Voter ID laws and to dispel “pop culture” notions of reduced voting access across the United States. Quoting Russel Nobile’s Senate testimony, Fitton explained that “data, not pop culture nor hyperbole from those that oppose race-neutral election integrity laws, tells the truth about ballot access in America.” 
“I can’t tell you how proud I am of our team … I encourage you to go watch their testimony!” Fitton concluded. Make sure to click here for Robert Popper’s testimony and here to hear Russell Nobile. If you’re concerned about the Left’s attack on election integrity, support Judicial Watch today.

July 5: Mr Guo reveals the backstory of DiDi Chuxing Technology becoming listed

July 5: Mr Guo reveals the backstory of DiDi Chuxing Technology becoming listed

Editor: TS2020 Translator:Joyce

1.     Internal politics inside the CCP:
Xi, Hu and Jiang are still fighting for power within the CCP Party. Hu is now siding with Xi as Hu’s son has been brought by money by Xi, and so basically, it is a battle between Xi and Jiang. Jiang did not attend the 100th anniversary celebration of the CCP, which was a clear sign of their power struggle.
2.     Resource allocation:
The founder of DiDi is Liu Chuanzhi, who is also the head of Lenovo Group Ltd. He is no doubt the most powerful IT leader in China, who is completely controlled by the CCP as well. As the buyer of IBM 20 something years ago, he is now called the traitor of the nation and has a bad reputation.
Companies/ parties that are related to DiDi business:
-Sequoia Capital (100% manipulated by the CCP military): deeply involved
-Wall Street and the tycoons in Hollywood: deeply involved
-The sons of the former and current CCP governors: deeply involved
DiDi is a business group completely manipulated by Jiang Zeming, Zeng Qinhong, Wang Qishan and MengJianzhu, and is predicted to worth over USD 70 billion in the market.
3. About a month ago, Mr Guo’s fund was invited to repurchase 10 times the market value of the share to be DiDi’s shareholder. In the end, the fund only used 9 times the money to buy back and then sold all the shares to some heartless businessmen from Taiwan and Japan who believed in the CCP. Mr Guo is now totally disassociated from Didi. These businesspeople who support the CCP will reach their dead end, doubtlessly.
4. In early June, Xi commanded to regulate DiDi on the surface, but in fact it was to crack it down and raid its wealth. On June 30, Xi commanded again to thoroughly inspect all the information and investments of their shareholders. The CCP will do everything it can to knock down DiDi, so it is in fact a fierce political fight, and we can anticipate another battle of interests and power will take place very soon.
5. DiDi going listed in the US aims to expropriate Americans’ money. A group of Americans who have betrayed their own nation and colluded with the CCP deceive their own people again. The CCP needs not any verification to get their companies listed in the States, so they provide wrong information, wrong identity but it is a real deception.
6. Xi ordered to investigate DiDi in the name of national security solely to overthrow it. All the capital that has been invested to the listing of DiDi will be in vain and go down the drain. Everything that Xi has done will worsen and deepen the conflicts within the Party and cause great loss to those Wall Street tycoons, which in turn aggravates their antipathy to Xi.

New court filings show FBI had at least 12 “informants” in Whitmer “kidnapping” plot

New court filings show FBI had at least 12 “informants” in Whitmer “kidnapping” plot

MICHIGAN- A shocking new revelation has come about in the case of five defendants arrested in connection with an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).
According to BuzzFeed, the federal government in the form of the FBI used at least a dozen confidential informants to infiltrate the group involved in the scheme, according to a federal court filing on Monday.
In the filing from the attorney of one of the five defendants in the case, prosecutors are being asked to release information about those twelve informants, including their relationship with the FBI as well as what role if any they played in developing the case.
The filing was among some 15 new defense motions filed by defense attorneys. Other requests are for a change in venue, motions to suppress evidence gathered in a search warrant, and a request to try at least one of the defendants separately.
Taken in totality, the filings indicate the course defense attorneys may be pursuing in the case, with at least some of them indicating they plan to pursue a defense that the FBI had “induced or persuaded” the defendants to go along with the plot.
Last October, the plot to allegedly kidnap Whitmer, one of the most dictatorial of US governors during the COVID-19 pandemic, was revealed by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
The announcement that six men had been charged in an alleged kidnapping conspiracy involving Whitmer went viral. Five of the men charged—Barry Croft, Adam Fox, Daniel Harris, Kaleb Franks, and Brandon Caserta—have all pleaded not guilty and are currently being held without bail.
The sixth suspect, Ty Garbin pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate in the case last January. It is unknown if prosecutors made a plea deal with him to gain his cooperation.
The DOJ said the defendants had met over a six-month period last year, where they had developed the scheme to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home, then removing her out of state where she would be put on “trial” for being a “tyrant.” The plot was derailed before it was executed when the DOJ arrested the alleged plotters.
In addition to the six, eight other men were charged under the state’s anti-terrorism laws for providing material support to the defendants. All but two of the defendants live in Michigan, and at least half of the defendants are members of the militant Wolverine Watchmen, a militant group which has been associated with the Three Percenters, a militia group, BuzzFeed said.
The flurry of defense motions came Monday since it was the deadline for such motions in the case.
Federal prosecutors have admitted to using informants in the case, however thus far their activities and identities have been closely held, with the exception of one who testified in March.
Thus far, the DOJ has provided ID numbers connected to 12 confidential informants, however with only one exception has refused to provide background on how they were recruited, what compensation if any they received from the FBI, where they are based or their names, according to Franks’ attorney.
The attorney, Scott Graham said that such information is vital in “preparation of a defense to the charges.”
Franks has asked for his case to be moved out of the Western District of Michigan, claiming “press coverage of (and participation in) this matter has corrupted the potential trial atmosphere to the point that Mr. Franks will be denied a fair trial in Michigan.”
In claiming media involvement in the case, Graham specifically identified a motion filed by BuzzFeed seeking to obtain access to exhibits revealed at a hearing relative to the case in January and cited the risk of “prejudice in this case based on the extensive, negative pervasive press coverage of the allegations.”
In addition to the change of venue, Graham has also requested that Franks be tried separately, primarily because he isn’t facing a bomb charge that was added to the case earlier this year.
That particular count, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, was applied to three of the other defendants in the case, who allegedly attempted to build explosive devices or procure bomb-making materials.
Graham noted that by combining the cases, potential commentary by the government in court about that particular charge “will certainly go far in frightening jurors and eliciting emotional decisions from them.”
An attorney for Croft on Sunday filed a motion, claiming the government had provided over 5,000 duplicate files as it shared evidence, with at least 15 copies of the same audio recording. That, he said significantly increases the burden on the defense.
Croft’s attorney, Joshua Blanchard, also asked the court to exclude evidence that was secured from Croft’s Delaware home during an October search, claiming they were outside the scope of the warrant. Included in those items included a 1-kilogram silver bar, a handwritten note cipher, and “Mr. Croft’s hat.”
Apparently, Croft is allegedly known among Three Percenters of wearing a tri-corner hat much like those worn during the American Revolution.
Law Enforcement Today has previously reported on the Whitmer case and possible FBI involvement. For more on that, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
The following contains editorial content by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI- Last week, the mainstream media breathlessly reported that “right wing extremists” had launched an effort to kidnap the far-left governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.
Of course Whitmer seized on those reports, blaming President Donald Trump’s “extremist rhetoric” for inflaming people to the point where they were going to take Whitmer hostage. However, details have emerged which may derail the narrative.
The Detroit Free Press reported on a bail hearing that took place on Tuesday and buried deep inside the story is what could be considered an important piece of information, and which may actually show that the “right wing militia” was in fact led to hatch the plot at the behest of one of the FBI informants.
According to defense attorney Scott Graham, he said that it was in fact informants and undercover agents who “pushed” the others to engage in illegal activity.
“One of the most active leaders was your informant,” Graham said.
The defense attorneys contended in their arguments to release the defendants on bail that there had been no probable cause to arrest and charge the suspects, saying that they had no “operational plans to do anything,” and that they had in fact been “engaged in legal activities—including talking in encrypted group chats and practicing military exercises with lawfully owned guns,” according to Graham.
Graham said that the FBI informant who wore wires to the militia meetings acted in more than just the capacity of an undercover observer.
The question became were these militia members victims of an entrapment scheme by the FBI? Certainly that is the narrative that Graham is trying to pursue. Was the FBI trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack as something of a false flag maneuver, and if so, why?
Clearly, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility after all we have discovered about the FBI’s complicity since 2016 in trying to take down the Trump administration. FBI Director Christopher Wray recently tried to downplay the violent, left-wing group Antifa, while trying to bolster the existence of right wing extremism.
An overwhelming majority of FBI agents are good and honorable people. The same cannot be said about their leadership, with former FBI Director James Comey and former Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe being outed as being intimately tied to the plot to undermine President Trump.
Is it too much to think that perhaps there is more to this “plot” to kidnap Whitmer than meets the eye? Probably not.
We have seen that the so-called “deep state,” the inner cabal of Washington insiders is not above trying to affect a presidential election.
The whole “Russia hoax” fiasco was perpetrated in large part by Comey and willing accomplices in the FBI, such as Peter Strzok and Lisa Paige. Was the FBI trying to manufacture an “October surprise” to influence the upcoming election? Who knows? Possible? Yes.
Still, given what we now know about the FBI and more recently the CIA, it is possible.
When the plot to allegedly kidnap Whitmer went public, the usual suspects in the mainstream DNC media jumped on the opportunity to tie it into President Trump, blaming his so-called “anti-lockdown” and “pro-militia” rhetoric for the plot, even though leaders of the group were by and large anti-Trump.
In speaking to the “plot” in Michigan, Graham offered the argument that there wasn’t in fact a plot to kidnap Whitmer, but it was more along the lines of “military wannabes” who engaged in “big talk.”
“Have you ever dealt with big talkers?” Graham asked an FBI agent during cross examination. “There’s kind of a military-wanna-be theme that runs between the militias.”
Graham was questioning FBI special agent Richard Trask about testimony that claimed a minimum of 13 so-called militia members had plotted to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home and either leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan or take her to Wisconsin where she would be tried for treason.

Under examination, Trask was asked how the members of the militia had planned on getting Whitmer to Wisconsin.
The agent couldn’t answer the question, and could only say that there were allegedly audio recordings of the suspects saying that they were planning on taking Whitmer to another state, including Wisconsin.
Again, the agent was asked by Graham what the suspects were going to do with Whitmer after leaving her in the lake, only saying that the alleged ringleader of the group, Adam Fox had said they were going to “take her out on a boat and leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan.”
Graham represents Kaleb Franks, 26, who ended up having his bail denied on Tuesday after the judge was convinced he was a danger to society. Two other suspects, Daniel Harris, 23 and Brandon Caserta, 32, were also refused bond.
The remaining bond hearings have been scheduled for Friday, this time for Fox and Ty Garbin, 24.
The five defendants appeared in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, where the case involving Whitmer was disclosed.
In addition, the group had also talked about kidnapping Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, he of the blackface college pictures, as well as one of the suspects—a decorated Marine—allegedly asked his co-conspirators if they wanted to kill a Maine police officer for one of his friends.
 Meantime, the defense lawyers claimed that the government has only produced small samples of conversations in the case, and said that the government has no evidence that the accused had any real plan to kidnap Whitmer.
The five men were setup in a scheme to purchase explosives and tactical gear from someone, however when they arrived FBI agents were there instead.
One of the defense attorneys, Gary Springstead, who is representing Garbin said that there is still much more evidence to be presented.
“I haven’t had a full opportunity to review all the evidence,” Springstead said. “I think my co-counsel made good pints that (the evidence presented today) is a snapshot. A lot of quick points in a big time frame. You don’t know what else is happening outside of that time frame.”
“So I’m sure in our investigation (which) we’re going to conduct ourselves, and not rely solely on the federal government to tell us what happened, we’ll try to round out that information and figure out what happened in the times that weren’t captured on tape that weren’t captured in text to put it into fuller context so we can better assess where we stand in the case.”
Springstead also spoke to using an informant in this case is troublesome, especially given the role they played.
“It’s become an issue in certain cases where the informant pushes some of the information, and the court and the government and the defense attorneys have to be leery of that,” he told reporters.
“Because their job is not to assess what the government informant wants them to do, it’s to assess the accused’s intent and what they actually planned on doing.”
Ironically, the Washington Examiner reported that Daniel Harris, 23, one of the so-called “white supremacists” who was involved with the plot, had attended a Black Lives Matter rally in June, telling the Oakland County Times that he was upset about the death of George Floyd and police violence, as reported in the Washington Post.  
Harris told the Oakland County Times: “We went to the BLM protest yesterday in Lake Orion to show our support that everyone’s voice should be heard, no matter the color on your skin. Protesting is important to me because it gives us all a voice to be heard.”
Sounds like a white supremacist to us.

Florida County Measure Would Ban Abortions, Protect Unborn Children

Florida County Measure Would Ban Abortions, Protect Unborn Children

Leaders of a central Florida county hope to follow Texas’s lead and pass ordinances to protect unborn babies from abortion in their county.
The Herald-Tribune reports Manatee County Commissioner James Satcher received approval from his fellow commissioners in June to move forward with plans to introduce two pro-life ordinances.
Though details about the proposed ordinances are not available yet, Satcher said one would be similar to legislation in Texas, likely the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinances that ban abortions within city limits. The second, he said, would provide additional support through the county crisis pregnancy program to help mothers choose life for their babies, according to the report.
“Everyone knows where I stand as far as pro-life policies,” Satcher told the other commissioners in June. “So this is permission for me to work and ask for more time from the attorney and the county administrator than the two hours than they would normally give you.”
It is not clear when Satcher will introduce his proposals, but abortion activists already are planning protests.
Amy Weintraub, of Progress Florida, is organizing one next week. She told the local news that the commissioners’ plans are a “waste of time.”
Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida CEO Stephanie Fraim said she was “truly terrified” by the plan because it could “restrict abortion access” and create “legal chaos” as similar measures already have done in Texas.
Follow LifeNews on the Parler social media network for the latest pro-life news!
Earlier this spring, voters in Lubbock, Texas overwhelmingly passed a pro-life ordinance to ban abortions in their city, resulting in Planned Parenthood stopping abortions there. The abortion chain did sue the city, but a judge recently dismissed its lawsuit.
Fraim said the Florida county commissioners should focus on real issues, not “nonsense.”
“We should be asking our county and city commissioners to focus on the things that are critically important, not this,” she told the newspaper. “Let’s spend our time on sensible issues — our climate, education, economy and health and safety of our community. Not on this nonsense.”
But most Americans believe that protecting unborn babies from abortion is anything but “nonsense.” Polls consistently show that a strong majority of Americans support strong limits on abortion. Every year, abortion kills nearly 1 million unborn babies in the U.S.
Across the country, dozens of local governments have passed pro-life resolutions and ordinances to protect unborn babies from abortion. Ordinances are enforceable legislation; resolutions are not. To date, 33 cities in Texas, Nebraska and Ohio have passed ordinances to ban abortions through the Sanctuary City for the Unborn initiative, and pro-life leaders said even more cities are considering action this summer.
These include Naples, Florida where city leaders are scheduled to discuss the matter at their Aug. 18 meeting, according to the report.

GEORGIA: Kemp Appoints Anti-Trump Judge Likely To Throw Out Any 2020 Fraud Cases, Draws Ire From Grassroots

GEORGIA: Kemp Appoints Anti-Trump Judge Likely To Throw Out Any 2020 Fraud Cases, Draws Ire From Grassroots

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has appointed a close ally of anti-Trump Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr to the Georgia Court of Appeals. Andrew Pinson, the new judge appointed by Kemp, is likely to hear any cases regarding potential election fraud, and due to his close relationship with Carr, is widely expected to throw them out.
Now, Kemp is receiving even more push back from the grassroots, who are “fighting to uncover the lengths the Democrats went to steal the election,” as he appears to posture against a 2022 political cycle where he will be challenged by the pro-Trump wing of the Georgia Republican Party.

Speaking to National File, Atlanta Tea Party icon Debbie Dooley slammed Georgia Governor Brian Kemp for betraying President Donald Trump and his supporters for his latest anti-Trump endorsements and appointments. “Georgia Governor Brian Kemp continues to betray Donald Trump and grassroots Trump supporters that are fighting to uncover the lengths the Democrats went to steal the election and make them be held accountable. Brian Kemp endorsed Chris Carr,” Dooley said. “Kemp just appointed Andrew Pinson, a close confidant of Trump betrayer Attorney General Chris Carr to the Georgia Court of Appeals. Pinson serves as Carr’s Solicitor General.”

Dooley explained that there is massive election fraud being uncovered in Fulton County and elsewhere in the state that are slowly making their way into mainstream news.  She explained that the Georgia Appeals Court “could end up hearing cases about the election fraud being uncovered,” and thus, it appears Kemp has now appointed an ally who will continue his efforts to undermine election integrity in the state of Georgia from the legislative branch. (READ MORE: VIDEO: Tucker Shows Evidence Of ‘Flat-Out Criminal Fraud’ In Georgia During 2020 Election)
“It is almost like Kemp is hedging his bets in case enough fraud is found to overturn the election, which I am hearing is being uncovered,” Dooley told National File. “The courts will rule against doing anything about election fraud, or will stop forensic audits. The last thing Kemp wants is for massive fraud to be uncovered that would have made a difference in the election, and voters to be reminded that he refused to call a special session to uncover it.”
Dooley noted that “we may not have Joe Biden and his caretakers” residing at the White House if Kemp had not refused to call a special session to address the mounting reports of voter fraud. “The 2022 election cycle will have a Kemp, Raffensperger, and Carr ticket against Trump Republicans. The three of them are aligned together, and are all culpable in the Democrats getting away with stealing the election.” (READ MORE: VoterGA Says Evidence Indicates Multiple Georgia Counties May Have Even More Election Fraud Than Fulton)

Judge Rules Conservative Larry Elder Will Be on Ballot for California Recall Election

Judge Rules Conservative Larry Elder Will Be on Ballot for California Recall Election

Last week, Salem Radio Host Larry Elder made it official that he was running to challenge Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) in the California recall election slated for September 14. Not long after, however, the California Secretary of State said he didn’t qualify to be on the ballot. After saying he would sue over “these shenanigans,” Elder delivered on that promise and a judge on Wednesday ruled in his favor, Jeremy B. White reported for POLITICO.
As White wrote:

At issue were the tax filings Elder had submitted to California elections officials in his bid to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom. Secretary of State Shirley Weber’s office said the documents Elder shared were improperly redacted. Elder went to court to fight back, and his case landed in front of Sacramento Superior Court Judge Laurie Earl just hours before Weber was set to certify the final list of candidates.

While Elder was one of the last Republican contenders to jump into the Newsom recall race, he quickly attracted national attention and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. That strong start demonstrated his preexisting base and wide name recognition, but Elder was at risk of having to refund the money if he was blocked from the ballot.

Not only did Judge Earl rule in Elder’s favor, but in doing so he pointed out that Elder shouldn’t have needed to provide tax returns at all, since this was a recall election and not a primary election.

Judge orders California to include Larry Elder on the ballot in California recall election. Says tax returns were never required in the first place for a recall as opposed to a primary election.
— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) July 21, 2021

White also wrote:

In addition to ruling that Weber must place Elder on recall ballots, Earl also rejected Weber’s conclusion that recall candidates are covered by the 2019 state law compelling gubernatorial candidates in a “direct primary election” to release tax returns.
“I don’t find that Mr. Elder was required to file tax returns at all,” Earl said.
The upcoming recall election is a special contest, not a direct primary. Nevertheless, Weber determined that the law should apply this time because it was intended to allow the public to vet gubernatorial hopefuls. Newsom’s campaign team asserted a similar interpretation in May when it gave reporters 90 minutes to review the governor’s 2019 tax returns.

“I want to express my deepest gratitude to the Superior Court of California, our friends, volunteers, supporters, and the people of California,” said Elder in a brief statement posted to his campaign website. “We fought the shenanigans of Sacramento’s politicians and we won. If elected governor, I will fight every single day for this state. This is just the beginning.”
Elder tweeted extensively about his candidacy and the ruling on Wednesday, which included a link to an Inside California Politics / Emerson College poll showing that Elder leads the pack of candidate support.
Elder enjoys 16 percent of support from respondents, while John Cox, who ran against Newsom in 2018 and former Mayor of San Diego Kevin Faulconer each have 6 percent. More than half, at 53 percent, are undecided.
In total there are 43 recall candidates.

Arkansas County Initially Approves Resolution to Oppose Killing Babies in Abortions

Arkansas County Initially Approves Resolution to Oppose Killing Babies in Abortions

A second Arkansas county took initial steps Tuesday to pass a pro-life resolution recognizing the value of every human being from conception to natural death.
The Benton County Committee of the Whole approved the resolution after listening to almost two hours of public comment, 40/29 News reports. The pro-life measure is scheduled for final approval July 29 on the county Quorum Court agenda.
Last week, Washington County, Arkansas became the first in the state to pass a resolution declaring itself a “pro-life county,” joining a growing movement of local governments that are taking a stand against abortion.
The Benton County resolution, sponsored by Justice of the Peace Joseph Bollinger, states that the county believes in promoting and protecting “the dignity and humanity of all persons at all stages of life from conception until natural death,” according to the report.
“To us at the Republican Party, being pro-life is an over-encompassing area of life, not just one particular subset of people, but all lives. Everyone’s life matters, whether it’s the unborn, the elderly or everyone in between,” Bollinger said.

A resolution is a statement; it does not have legal power. It simply sends a clear message that the county believes every human life is valuable and deserving of protection.
Local residents also expressed their support for the resolution during the public comment period. One woman described how amazingly developed babies are in the womb.
“What if we could see every hiccup, every kick and every time our unborn babies smiled?” she asked. “Not only would it be incredible to witness, abortion would be unthinkable. No one would want to kill an innocent baby they could see thriving in the womb with their own eyes.”
However, the resolution did meet some resistance from abortion activists, including members of the Young Democrats of Arkansas. Several stood outside the meeting with signs declaring, “Abortion is healthcare” and “Protect safe, legal abortion.”
Over the past several years, dozens of local governments across the United States have passed pro-life resolutions and ordinances to protect unborn babies from abortion.
To date, 33 cities in Texas, Nebraska and Ohio have passed ordinances to ban abortions through the Sanctuary City for the Unborn initiative, and pro-life leaders said even more cities are considering action this summer. Unlike resolutions, ordinances are enforceable legislation.
In a huge victory for life earlier this spring, voters in Lubbock, Texas overwhelmingly passed a pro-life ordinance to ban abortions in their city. The vote resulted in Planned Parenthood stopping abortions there. The abortion chain did sue the city, but a judge recently dismissed its lawsuit.
Other local governments also have passed pro-life resolutions in recent years, including Prattville, Alabama; Roswell, New Mexico; Batavia and Putnam County, New York; Riverton and Highland, Utah; and Springdale, Arkansas.

They’re In A Hurry

They’re In A Hurry

2008 Summer Olympic Opening Ceremony Beijing celebrates ‘One World, One Dream’Image by U.S. Army

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

July 23 to 31 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party, and the party is keen to celebrate that in a very special way — Hong Kong or Taiwan would make a lovely birthday present. 

But that’s only the most immediate deadline facing China and a number of major players in the West.

Chairman Xi Jinping may have a few years left, but he’d like to enjoy them in full splendor and glory, for as many years as possible. He is not only eager to walk into Taiwan and Hong Kong soon as a conquering hero, but also to see himself immortalized as the emperor who restored the Middle Kingdom to its rightful place at the Center of the World — China has been waiting a very long time for this moment. That is why, in late December, he took over greater personal control of the military, exactly one year after he was named “the People’s Leader,” a title previously bestowed only on Mao Tse-tung.

Another pressing concern for China is its demographic time-bomb. For centuries, men have far outnumbered women in the country, but, now, that imbalance can affect the country’s global aspirations. Therefore, one of China’s primary goals has been to quickly procure women for its single men — in particular, for ethnic Han men; and they have been doing just that, all around the Indian Ocean littoral, where they have been investing trillions of yuan on local infrastructure projects, politicians, and others, and picking up local women along the way. And resource-poor China also has its eyes on Russian women — as a byproduct of resource-rich eastern Russia (millions of birds with one stone). Then, just a few strokes to the east, across the Sea of Japan, an aging and barren nation is ready to be plucked — women and all.

On this side of the Pacific, all the main political players are in even more of a hurry. The Marxists behind the throne may have only a year to ram through as much of Revolution 2.0, Unplugged, as they can — not only economic and social transformations, but, also, nationalizing elections and the police; adding two states and a few Supreme Court justices; and importing as many future Democrats as possible (before the doors are shut again), to offset the Blacks, Latinos, and working-class people they’re bleeding. All the while, the Democrats are ramping up their campaign to villainize and delegitimize the MAGA movement and crush investigations into election fraud — before their lying, cheating asses are more-fully exposed. 

For its part, the MAGA movement wants to halt further advances by the Marxists, while completing its takeover of the Republican Party, in time to retake Congress next year as an economic nationalist party. At the same time, establishment Republicans are urgently trying to hold off the insurgents and secure control of their party, before they completely lose it and become politically irrelevant. Meanwhile, corrupt politicians and families from all parties and across the country are looking to suck as much as they can out of the system, before the master keys to the vaults are taken away.

On the other side of the planet, Communist China is not sitting idly by and just watching this game (and many other games across the globe). So, the party isn’t letting up in its heavy investments in politicians, media, entertainment, schools, think tanks, private groups, corporations, the financial sector, and the Chinese diaspora around the world — lest another monkey-wrench gets thrown into the machinery and gum up the works.

Finally, elite globalists everywhere, including millions of mandarins and functionaries in and out of government, long to fulfill their dreams for humanity, the planet, and beyond, before the tide turns against them and they’d have to flee to their private islands and space stations (or seek refuge in China). This necessarily entails crushing the MAGA movement and other populist movements around the world.

So, strap on your seat belts — we’re coming down the homestretch in a super-charged race and headed for a major collision course — and the stakes couldn’t be much higher.

10 Reasons to Question the Election

10 Reasons to Question the Election

It’s frustrating to hear people on the Right, including some who should know better, claim there’s “no evidence” of significant, possibly outcome-changing fraud in the last presidential election — even as the forensic audit in Arizona uncovers multiple discrepancies.
Clearly, they’re confusing “evidence” with “proof.”
No, there may not be absolute, incontrovertible proof of election fraud — yet.  But there is plenty of evidence, good reasons a rational person might question the outcome.  Here are ten that come to mind, in no particular order:
Eyewitness testimony.  Since November 3, hundreds of people have come forward to report that they personally witnessed various irregularities in the vote-counting process: ballots run through tabulating machines multiple times; “pristine” mail-in ballots; ballots that appeared to have been printed on different paper or filled out by machines — the list goes on.
Two questions come to mind.  First, what would these witnesses stand to gain by making knowingly false claims?  Many submitted actual affidavits, subjecting themselves to potential legal liability.  Second, could that many people simply be mistaken?  It seems unlikely.
Our own eyes.  Actually, the eyewitness testimony confirms what many of us have since seen for ourselves, via security camera footage: cases of ballots being pulled out from under tables in Fulton County, Georgia, right after observers were told to go home for the night.  Vans pulling up to TCF Center in Detroit, with dozens of boxes unloaded in the dead of night.We also saw, live on television, huge, sudden jumps in vote totals for Biden, in some cases accompanied by corresponding drops in Trump’s totals.
Are there innocent, plausible explanations?  Perhaps.  But I have yet to hear any.  Mostly, we’re just told, “Move along, folks.  Nothing to see here.”
Statistical anomalies.  Some of the most persuasive evidence comes from mathematicians like Edward Solomon, who have conducted in-depth statistical analyses and concluded that the reported election results are highly improbable, if not impossible.  Documented anomalies include repeated percentages that could not occur naturally and number sequences that appear to violate Benford’s Law, governing the standard distribution of first digits.  Both are considered valid indicators of fraud in criminal cases.
Expert testimony.  Along with Solomon, we also have other internationally recognized experts like Jovan Hutton Pulitzer who have put their reputations on the line — in Pulitzer’s case, by devising a method of forensically examining ballots using computer imaging.  These are people who have little to gain from taking an unpopular position.  That they do so openly, for no other reason than that they value the truth, speaks volumes.
Credible proponents.  When pressed to choose between two sides of a controversial issue about which I’m unsure, I typically look at the proponents of the opposing views.  If one side appears more honest, rational, and credible than the other, I tend to lean that way.
Beyond the experts, there are many election skeptics whose opinions I respect.  Some are friends and family members; others are national figures like Garland Favorito; Matthew DePerno; and especially David Clements, on whose Herculean efforts much of this information is based.
Constitutional questions.  For me, one of the biggest issues is whether or not the election was conducted in accordance with the Constitution.  It appears that, in several states, it was not.
The Constitution expressly cedes authority for conducting elections to state legislatures.  But in Pennsylvania, election laws were changed by the Executive Branch and then upheld by the Judiciary, over the objections of the Legislature.  In my home state of Georgia, much of the election process seems to have been shaped by back-room deals between the governor and the “shadow governor,” Stacey Abrams.  I don’t see how either can be constitutional.
Lack of evidentiary hearings.  “But the courts have debunked all these allegations,” the left cries.  Not exactly.  Yes, most (but not all) of the lawsuits brought so far have been dismissed, mostly on technicalities.  Very few courts have actually taken time to hear the evidence.
This brings to mind the old philosophical conundrum about the tree falling in the forest: if you have actual evidence, but the courts refuse to hear it, does it make a sound?
Democrat obstructionism.  Despite all those “wins” in court, and amid absurd claims that this was “the most secure election in history,” Democrats seem oddly reluctant to allow for investigations.  In fact, in Arizona and elsewhere, they appear to be in a state of abject panic, willing to do almost anything to disrupt, discredit, or delay audits.
Why, if there was no fraud, are they so adamant?  Approximately half the country questions the election.  Why not allow the audits to proceed and put those doubts to rest?
Big Tech propaganda.  Whether or not actual fraud occurred, there’s no question Big Tech had its thumb on the scale — promoting false narratives that helped Biden (Russian collusion, the “good people” lie, accusing Trump of downplaying the pandemic) while suppressing factual reports that might have hurt him — in particular, the Hunter Biden laptop story.  Zuckerberg, Dorsey, et al. have essentially admitted as much — and they continue propping up the Biden administration to this day, using the same tactics.
That, folks, is propaganda—and I’m not aware of any situation in history where propaganda was necessary to promote the truth.
The smell test.  Finally, there is this: the whole thing just stinks to high heaven.  A sitting president earns more votes than any sitting president in history; he increases his vote totals among Blacks, Hispanics, and women; he wins 18 of 19 “Bellwether Counties,” along with Florida, Ohio, and Iowa — long the guarantors of presidential victory; his party picks up seats in the House; and he still loses?
That makes no sense.  I might not be able to prove it isn’t true, but I’ll tell you this: I don’t believe it for a minute.

The Coming ‘January 6’ Train Wreck

The Coming ‘January 6’ Train Wreck

With the DOJ’s first sentencing, the legal realities are disappointing the left’s lust for blood.The January 6 Capitol clash may be the gift that keeps on giving to cynics everywhere. In the coming months, Americans will likely see jaw-dropping bureaucratic debacles, stunning abuses by federal prosecutors, and appalling bloodlust by angry Biden supporters. Perhaps the least likely outcome is that the coming train wreck will restore faith in American democracy. The Justice Department declared last week, “The investigation and prosecution of the Capitol Breach will be the largest in American history, both in terms of the number of defendants prosecuted and the nature and volume of the evidence.” The feds are sorting through “237,000 digital tips, 1 million Parler videos and images comprising 40 terabytes of data scraped from the Internet — roughly equivalent to 10 million photos, 20,000 hours of video, or 50,000 filing cabinets of paper documents,” theWashington Post reported. Investigators are also sorting through “cell tower data for thousands of electronic devices that connected to the Capitol’s interior distributed antenna system,” information provided by phone companies, Google, and other data aggregation companies. The problem will be compounded because many government employees are slow readers. More than 500 protestors have already been charged in federal court, but their trials will likely be delayed at least until next year. Federal judge John Bates recently warned that evidence snafus could result in judges “going on the warpath.” If judges conclude that the Justice Department is unreasonably keeping January 6 defendants locked up (often in solitary confinement) too long, judicial edicts could unravel prosecutors’ long-term plans.  Federal cases against January 6 protestors are being built on what one savvy electronic evidence consultant called a “Tower of Babel nightmare.” While federal agents gloated at the 300,000 plus tips that poured into the FBI with regards to January 6 protestors, prosecutors are obliged to sift the hairballs and provide each defendant and their lawyers with potentially exculpatory evidence.  The biggest data dump on record will likely spur a deluge of inadvertent or intentional withholding of evidence. The Justice Department recently notified defense lawyers that they would have to “build a system to receive the data” the feds delivered. The prosecution is also whining because a federal judge prevented them from relying on a private contractor to organize secret grand jury evidence.  The Justice Department may be delaying release of the bulk of the more than 14,000 hours of video surveillance from inside the Capitol on January 6 in an attempt to preserve Biden’s “domestic terrorism” storyline of that day’s events. Even before Trump supporters poured into the Capitol that day, Democrats were accusing them of sedition for filing legal challenges to the 2020 election results, including popular Twitter hashtags such as  #GOPSeditiousTraitors and #TreasonAgainstAmerica. After the mob delayed congressional proceedings for six hours, congressional leaders compared the interruption to the 9/11 attacks, Pearl Harbor, and the War of 1812. The Justice Department may also be foot-dragging on releasing evidence because it is reluctant to disclose what role, if any, federal informants or undercover agents had in instigating or propagating violence that day. For January 6 defendants, federal prosecutors are using a simple formula: Trespassing plus thought crimes equals terrorism. On Monday, Paul Hodgkins was sentenced to 8 months in prison, though the feds admitted he was guilty simply of taking selfies, wearing a Trump T-shirt, and carrying a Trump flag into the Senate chamber and “did not personally engage in or espouse violence or property destruction.” Though Hodgkins pled guilty only to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, Biden’s Justice Department demanded a lengthy prison sentence for Hodgkins to “deter…domestic terrorism.” This is akin to prosecutors seeking harsh punishment for a confessed jaywalker because his negligent behavior could have caused a school bus to crash. At the same time the Justice Department is bumbling towards paralysis, many Americans are howling for the heads of January 6 defendants. In his Gulag Archipelago, Alexander Solzhenitsyn described the vast public outrage that went along with a prominent Soviet show trial of accused wreckers: “There were universal meetings and demonstrations (including even school-children). It was the newspaper march of millions, and the roar rose outside the windows of the courtroom: ‘Death! Death! Death!’”  The same spectacle has been stark on Twitter and in the comment section of the Washington Post, among other places.One Washington Postcommenter declared that “the only effective way for the government to respond to an act of war by domestic terrorists is to be prepared to meet them with machine guns and flamethrowers and mow them down. Not one of those terrorists who broke through police lines [on January 6] should have escaped alive.”  Hodgkins’s sentence terrified and enraged Post readers. One wrote, “The pitiful 8 month sentence scares me badly… I’m afraid the government is losing its ability to protect us from madmen (consider the mentally ill and tweakers roaming our streets untreated) and right wing Q inspired terrorists.” Another commented, “He should have been given the death penalty for sedition.” As always, one commenter even reached back to the Nazis for an analogy, writing, “It is comparable to the 9 months that Adolf Hitler served after his participation in an attempted 1923 putsch against the German government. Remember how that turned out?”Federal judge Randolph Moss, when he sentenced Hodgkins, declared that his action will make it “harder for all of us to tell our children and grandchildren that democracy stands as the immutable foundation of our nation.” Unfortunately, judges seem nonchalant when American democracy is subverted instead by federal agencies. After FBI Assistant General Counsel Kevin Clinesmith admitted falsifying key evidence to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump presidential campaign, federal judge James Boasberg gushed with sympathy at the sentencing hearing: “Mr. Clinesmith has lost his job in government service—what has given his life much of its meaning.” Scorning the recommendation of the federal prosecutor (who said the “resulting harm is immeasurable recommendation” from Clinesmith’s action), Boasberg gave Clinesmith a wrist slap—400 hours of community service and 12 months of probation. The Justice Department Inspector General documented many other abuses of power and deceit by FBI officials in the Hillary Clinton or Trump investigations, but not a single FBI official has spent a day behind bars.  Will Justice Department prosecutors be caught in a Catch-22, pressured by the White House to harvest as many scalps as possible but crippled by the lack of proof that most of the accused were guilty of anything besides trespassing or “willfully and knowingly parading” in the Capitol? Political pressure for high-profile convictions resulted in disastrous courtroom defeats for federal attorneys prosecuting Ruby Ridge, the Branch Davidian standoff at Waco, and other cases. If juries rebuff prosecutors on more than a few January 6 cases, then the entire political storyline could quickly collapse. Federal prosecutor Mona Sedky is calling for harsh punishment for January 6 defendants because of “the need to preserve respect for the law.” But at this point, “respect for the law” is a loss leader in this process. That won’t be remedied when people realize that taking selfies can result in a federal sentencing enhancement. James Bovard is the author of Lost Rights, Attention Deficit Democracy, and Public Policy Hooligan.

Former police chief: Hate to say this, but the FBI is broken – and may not be fixable as it is

Former police chief: Hate to say this, but the FBI is broken – and may not be fixable as it is

WASHINGTON, DC- Law Enforcement Today has reported numerous times on the serious problems that appear to be plaguing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Clearly these problems are not an indictment of the majority of rank-and-file agents, however there are some significant issues plaguing the agency, issues which must be dealt with to restore confidence in the agency by the American people.
PJ Media reports that a scathing report from a Department of Justice inspector general was released this week which reports a senior FBI official has been identified as continually violating the agency’s policy over unauthorized media contacts and by accepting unapproved “gifts.”
According to the IG’s report, the FBI official, who was not identified, “received items of value from members of the media” and had “numerous unauthorized contacts with the media” between 2014 and 2016.
Those gifts included, among other things, tickets to two black-tie dinner events, one valued at $300 and the other at $225. Those tickets were provided by an unnamed member of the media. The reporter, who also was not named, also provided transportation to the event, the report said.
This incident is another in a line of malfeasance by FBI agents. For example, in 2016, Michael Kortan, a former top FBI press officer, was given baseball tickets by a CNN reporter while also lying to investigators, a DOJ report said.
The report said Kortan, who resigned in 2018 “lacked candor under oath when he provided answers to OIG’s questions relating to the September 2016 tickets that were misleading and false.”
In a bizarre twist, the same DOJ report said that the agency cannot compel or subpoena testimony from former department employees, including any who may retire or resign during the course of an investigation.
This came about after the New York Post reported in May that former FBI Director Louis Freeh had given $100,000 to a trust fund for two of Joe Biden’s grandchildren while seeking to pursue “some very good and profitable matters” with him, according to emails that surfaced that month.
The gift from Freeh came about in April 2016—nine months before Biden left the vice-presidency—and shortly before he told Biden’s son Hunter the crackhead, “I would be delighted to do future work with you, the emails said.
This was despite the fact that the drug-addicted Hunter had been kicked out of the military in 2014 and he possessed little if any experience or qualifications.
None of this would come as a surprise to former President Donald Trump, who had long argued that the FBI and the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller had colluded with leftist media outlets by leaking sensitive information to them. That included the raid on Trump confidante Roger Stone, which saw CNN conveniently at the scene as agents raided Stone’s home in the early morning raid.
Trump also alleged the FBI had released information about so-called “Russia collusion” in the 2016 presidential campaign, and allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch also alleged that the Department of Justice were stonewalling the group when they tried to obtain documents under FOIA for the Stone raid. Judicial Watch ended up having to sue the DOJ, with Fitton claiming Judicial Watch was being “stonewalled,” indicating to him “someone has something to hide.”

This was a simple request for information about any leaks to @CNN regarding the controversial raid and arrest of Roger Stone. That we’re being stonewalled suggests that someone has something to hide, https://t.co/IE2pwYCp3J via @JudicialWatch

The FBI has become increasingly political, or probably more accurately, more open about it. Last year when NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace alleged he found a “noose” in his garage area, the agency dispatched at least six special agents to Talladega, Alabama to investigate.
It turned out the “noose” was in fact a garage door pull that has been in that particular garage (and several others) for years.
More recently, the FBI has aggressively been going after those affiliated with the worst “insurrection” in world history, the January 6 US Capitol siege. 
All the while. they’ve been ignoring the violent anarchist thugs who rioted in cities across the US last summer in the name of antifa and Black Lives Matter.
An overwhelming majority of those who participated in the Capitol incident committed no more than criminal trespass, with perhaps a few dozen to maybe 100 being involved in more serious crimes such as assault.
There are even questions as to whether or not officials from the FBI may have helped perpetrate the Capitol incident.
Indeed, in an alleged plot to “kidnap” Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), the FBI was very “active” in not only embedding agents and sources inside the plot but actually helping to facilitate and augment portions of it. The same agent who commanded the Detroit field office of the FBI was transferred to Washington, DC shortly before the January 6 incident.
What gives pause to the January 6 incident is the fact that the Department of Justice has, according to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, refused to release over 10,000 hours of surveillance video from that date. That video could help to answer many questions the American people have about that day.
Carlson also noted that the government is hiding the identity of law enforcement officers who were present at the Capitol, including the identity of the plainclothes officer who shot and killed Trump supporter, Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, the only person killed on that date.
Carlson said that among those involved in the incident are “upwards of 20 unindicted co-conspirators” among those from the Oath Keepers who were arrested and indicted for their participation in the siege. Who are these “unindicted co-conspirators?” We don’t know. However those 20 individuals participated in ways similar if not more severely than those who were indicted.
Two of those unindicted co-conspirators—identified as “Person Two” and “Person Three” were in fact organizers of the riot…yet they were not indicted. Why?
Chances are they were either FBI informants or possibly FBI agents. In other words, according to government documents, FBI operatives were actively involved with organizing the January 6 “insurrection.” What of the other 18? There likely were at least some, if not all, involved in organizing the riot.
During a Senate hearing in March, FBI Director Christopher Wray admitted that the agency was infiltrating as many dissident groups as they could.
“Any time there is an attack, especially one that’s this horrific [Jan 6], that strikes right at the heart of our system the government, right at the time the transfer of power is being discussed, you can be darn tooting that we are focused very, very hard on how could we get better sources, better information, better analysis so that we can make sure that something that what happened on January 6th never happens again.”
Taken as a totality, it appears that the FBI was indeed highly active in planning and facilitating the events of January 6. False flag, anyone?
There are a number of other incidents, such as the church shooting in Garland, Texas in which the FBI was not only aware of but an active participant, with one FBI agent posing as an Islamic radical who had been in contact with Elton Simpson, the shooter at least three weeks before the attack.
A former FBI said the quiet part out loud in an interview on MSNBC, where a former FBI Assistant Director, Frank Figliuzzi explained:
“What we learned from our experience with international terrorism? In order to address that problem, arresting low-level operatives is merely a speed bump, not a roadblock. In order to really tackle terrorism, this time domestically, you’ve got to attack and dismantle the command-and-control element of a terrorist group…that may ben people sitting in Congress right now.”
Yes, a former FBI official suggested that a sitting member of Congress could be arrested basically if they oppose the regime.
We haven’t even gotten into the whole sordid mess with former FBI Director James Comey and disgraced former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and the whole sordid Crossfire Hurricane disgrace. 
Some have suggested dismantling the FBI, CIA and DHS and starting over from scratch, which might not be a bad idea.

Earlier this year, we reported on a former FBI intelligence analyst who had been removing and taking home national security documents. For more on that, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
MISSOURI- The Washington Examiner and other media sources tell us that an intelligence analyst at the FBI has been indicted and arrested related to the removal of national security documents and taking them to her home over the course of nearly a decade.
In an unsealed indictment it was revealed that Kendra Kingsbury, 48, had removed documents related to human sources and sensitive methods, as well as information on terrorist groups including al Qaeda and a number of other foreign threats.
Kingsbury was arrested Friday after the Tuesday indictment was unsealed and appeared before a magistrate.
Kingsbury, of Dodge City, Kansas worked as in intelligence analyst at the Kansas City Division of the FBI for 12 years prior to being suspended in 2017 after it was discovered that she had allegedly took the documents, according to a release from the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Fox 10 in Phoenix reported that Kingsbury had a top-secret security clearance which allowed her access to both national defense and classified information, the DOJ said.
In addition, she was also assigned to squads working on counterintelligence, violent crime and gangs, and illegal drug running.”
“As an intelligence analyst for the FBI, the defendant was entrusted with access to sensitive government materials,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers who is assigned to the DOJ’s National Security Division.
“Kingsbury is alleged to have violated our nation’s trust by stealing and retaining classified documents in her home for years. Insider threats are a significant danger to our national security, and we will continue to work relentlessly to identify, pursue and prosecute individuals who pose such a threat.”
The indictment alleges that Kingsbury “improperly removed sensitive government materials—including national defense information and classified documents” between June 2004 and December 2017, and that she had “retained these materials in her personal residence.”
Kingsbury was not, however accused of either sharing or selling the information.
The indictment continued that Kingsbury “was not authorized to remove and retain these sensitive government materials, including the National Defense Information and classified documents,” nor did she have a “need to know” regarding “most, if not all of the information contained in those materials.”
The indictment alleged that she “knew that she was not authorized to remove and retain the materials,” however did so anyway.
The DOJ said the first count against Kingsbury “relates to numerous documents classified at the secret level that describe intelligence sources and methods related to U.S. government efforts to defend against counterterrorism, counterintelligence and cyber threats” including “details on the FBI’s nationwide objectives and priorities, including specific open investigations across multiple field offices” and “documents relating to sensitive human source operations in national security investigations, intelligence gaps regarding hostile foreign intelligence services and terrorist organizations and the technical capabilities of the FBI against counterintelligence and counterterrorism targets.”
The indictment goes on to list 10 different national security documents in the 2008-to-2014-time frame in the first count, related to a presentation, an email, an evaluation document, an intelligence bulletin and a variety of intelligence notes.
In the second count, the DOJ alleges that “relates to numerous documents classified at the secret level that describe intelligence sources and methods related to U.S. government efforts to collect intelligence on terrorist groups,” including documents related to “information about al Qaeda members on the African continent, including a suspected associate of Osama bin Laden” and records “regarding the activities of emerging terrorists and their efforts to establish themselves in support of al Qaeda in Africa.”
That indictment addresses 10 different records as part of this count, most of which included internal FBI correspondence.
“The breadth and depth of classified national security information retained by the defendant for more than a decade is simply astonishing,” said Alan Kohler Jr., assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division on Friday.
“The defendant, who’s well trained in handling classified information, put her country’s sensitive secrets at risk. The FBI will go to great lengths to investigate individuals who put their own interests above U.S. national security, including when the individual is an FBI employee.”
The DOJ says that by removing and transporting the documents to an authorized location could have put the entire country’s safety at risk.
Kingsbury “risked disclosure and transmission of those materials, and therefore could endanger the national security of the United States and the safety of its citizens. She also knew that violating the rules governing the handling of classified information could result in criminal prosecution.”
Fox 10 said the case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Patrick C. Edwards and David Raskin in the Western District of Missouri, assisted by DOJ trial attorney Scott Claffee who is assigned to the Counterintelligence & Export Control Section of the National Security Division.
Of course, one must ask…what exactly was Kingsbury doing with this top-secret, classified information? It seems there is more to this than meets the eye.

In case you missed it, the FBI isn’t exactly on a roll. We recently reported on a FBI electronic technician who was arrested on child pornography and sexual exploitation of children charges. For more on that, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
NASHVILLE, TN – A 38-year-old man who was employed by the FBI’s Nashville office as an electronics technician was arrested on April 27th under charges of sexual exploitation of children and receipt of child pornography.

According to the criminal complaint, Carroll was identified as the user of an email address which was connected to “the facilitation and exchange of sexually explicit images and videos between Carroll and a 14-year-old female in Rhode Island.” https://t.co/lPoG3YAVmH
— Elizabeth Lane (@elizabethlanetv) April 28, 2021

According to a press release from the Department of Justice, 38-year-old Justin D. Carroll had allegedly been engaged in online communications with a 14-year-old girl, where authorities say Carroll had received inappropriate photos and videos from the minor while also exchanging in sexually explicit chats with the minor.
The investigation into the FBI employee started back in March, after a suspicious package arrived at the Nashville FBI office. Reportedly this package was addressed to the Nashville FBI office, but there was no specified recipient listed on the package label.
However, there was a return address that listed the name and address of someone that was later determined to be a 14-year-old girl based out of Rhode Island.
Considering the suspicious nature of the package, FBI bomb technicians intercepted the package and, once opened, it was found that there was a teddy bear and some candy inside of the box.
Upon further investigation, authorities found that this 14-year-old girl and Carroll had initially met in some online chat room during the summer of 2020 and had carried on numerous conversations across all sorts of communication platforms like Google Hangouts and email.
According to the DOJ, the following was noted about the nature of these communications between the suspect and the victim:
“Messages sent by Carroll consisted primarily of descriptions of intercourse and professions of love and included sexually explicit photos and videos exchanged between Carroll and the minor female.
“All communications sent from and received by Carroll were determined to have been sent from his personal devices.  Carroll had previously provided the minor female with his mailing address, listing the Nashville FBI Office’s street address.”

— FBI Memphis (@FBIMemphis) April 28, 2021

Reportedly investigators found that the suspect had allegedly tried engaging in other “sexually explicit conversations” with other minors.
FBI Memphis Field Office’s Special Agent in Charge Douglas Korneski stated the following regarding Carroll’s arrest:
“Once the FBI became aware of the alleged crime, an investigation was immediately initiated and investigated with all expediency, which culminated in today’s arrest.
“Anyone who commits a federal crime should know that the FBI will investigate to the fullest extent allowable by law, particularly when they are one of our employees.”

Acting U.S. Attorney Mary Jane Stewart for the Middle District of Tennessee commended the quick work enabled by the FBI regarding this investigation:
“I commend the leadership of the FBI for their quick and decisive action in this matter.
“Once the suspect was identified as an FBI support employee, agents took swift action to prevent the continued victimization of this child and others.  We will continue to work vigorously with our FBI partners to hold this individual accountable.”
If convicted of these charges, Carroll could face anywhere between 15 to 50 years in prison.

Voting machines in Pennsylvania’s Fulton County decertified after audit

Voting machines in Pennsylvania’s Fulton County decertified after audit

 | July 21, 2021

Voting machines in Pennsylvania‘s Fulton County were decertified after local officials complied with a GOP-backed ballot audit and allowed a third-party contractor to access data.
The rural county, which borders Maryland, must do away with its Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5A voting system, employed in the 2020 presidential election, after Wake TSI, a software company, was allowed in December to gain access to and look over its “election database, results files, and Windows system logs,” acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid told county officials in a letter on Tuesday.
The company, which has largely worked with clients in the healthcare sector, had “no knowledge or expertise in election technology,” said Degraffenreid, who concluded the ballot hardware was “compromised.”
“These actions were taken in a manner that was not transparent or bipartisan,” Degraffenreid wrote. “As a result of the access granted to Wake TSI, Fulton County’s certified system has been compromised and neither Fulton County; the vendor, Dominion Voting Systems; nor the Department of State can verify that the impacted components of Fulton County’s leased voting system are safe to use in future elections.”
PENNSYLVANIA QUICKLY COUNTERS ELECTION ‘FORENSIC’ AUDIT WITH VOTING MACHINES DIRECTIVE
Wake TSI, a company from Pennsylvania that a document obtained by the Washington Post shows was “contracted” by a nonprofit group run by pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell, found the election in Fulton County was “well run” and “conducted in a diligent and effective manner.”
But Wake TSI also stressed this “does not indicate that there were no issues with the election, just that they were not the fault of the County Election Commission or County Election Director,” according to a report in February. The report then listed five “issues of note” regarding the conduct of the election, including those relating to the county’s voting machines.
“Please know that I did not arrive at this decision lightly,” Degraffenreid said in the letter. “I have a statutory obligation to examine, evaluate and certify electronic voting systems. These reviews include verifying that the voting system conforms to federal and state law and any regulations or standards regarding confidentiality, security, accuracy, safety, reliability, usability, accessibility, durability, resiliency, and auditability.”
The move to decertify Fulton County’s voting machines, a similar display to what is playing out in Arizona’s Maricopa County, signals significant political consequences beyond the financial hardship placed on local officials.
Degraffenreid warned all counties in the state this month that giving “third-party entities” access to voting machines would result in decertification of voting equipment. She also said that Pennsylvania “will not reimburse any cost of replacement voting” hardware if the mandate is ignored.
The move followed a request from state Sen. Doug Mastriano, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee, who sent letters to three counties seeking 2020 election information and materials for what is shaping up to be an Arizona-style forensic audit (in fact, Wake TSI was hired as a subcontractor for the hand recount in the Arizona Senate’s Maricopa County audit). He set a deadline of July 31 and threatened to pursue subpoenas if they don’t comply.
Already there are signs that the counties will not fully comply with the Republican lawmaker’s request in light of the Pennsylvania secretary of state’s mandate. Mastriano reportedly had a role in backing the Wake TSI review and was a supporter of the “Stop the Steal” movement. He has also said former President Donald Trump encouraged him to run for governor in 2022.

President Joe Biden won the state of Pennsylvania by more than 81,000 votes.
Since he was declared the victor of the November race, a flurry of lawsuits has sought to challenge the results, including some in Pennsylvania, though they were largely rejected by the courts, and election officials throughout the country have sharply denied any widespread fraud in the contest.
Mastriano did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.

Arkansas AG Tells Supreme Court: The Constitution Does Not Sanction Killing an Unborn Child”

Arkansas AG Tells Supreme Court: The Constitution Does Not Sanction Killing an Unborn Child”

On January 5th, NRL News Today reported on a decision by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals affirming a lower court’s order that overturned an Arkansas law prohibiting abortions that are performed “solely on the basis of” a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Arkansas lawmakers overwhelmingly passed Act 619, the Down Syndrome Discrimination by Abortion Prohibition Act, in 2019.
That decision came less than two months after a three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the state of Tennessee a big victory. The panel ruled the state could begin enforcing a ban on abortion when the abortionist knows that the woman is seeking the abortion because of the child’s sex or race or if he knows the woman is seeking an abortion because of a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
The 8th Circuit frankly acknowledged it had created a circuit split, which makes for the kind of disagreement the Supreme Court often addresses.
This past week pro-life Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge filed a reply brief in support of her petition “asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review an erroneous decision holding that the Constitution guarantees a right to abort a child solely on the basis of a Down-syndrome diagnosis,” alluding to the 8th Circuit  decision.
LifeNews depends on the support of readers like you to combat the pro-abortion media. Please donate now.
Attorney General Rutledge said, “In my personal experiences, I know individuals with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome, but they also have extra love to give and I will fight for these innocent individuals who are a gift from God.” She added, “The Constitution does not sanction killing an unborn child just because that child may have Down syndrome and I will not stand by and allow this practice to happen.”
The state’s 16-page reply brief pulls no punches.
Here are three pithy examples. In each, the internal citations are omitted for clarity.
#1:

The day this petition was docketed, a circuit split opened up on the question it presents. The en banc [the entire] Sixth Circuit held States may prohibit knowingly performing Down-syndrome-selective abortions, contrary to the decision below, which held the opposite.
In a different era, Respondents might encourage review of that question. Instead, to avoid it, Respondents hide behind a farrago of illusory, split-denying distinctions, misleading statistics, decontextualized quotations of precedent, and an outlandish claim that Arkansas is estopped from advocating its best reading of this Court’s abortion cases by its response to another party’s rehearing petition in a different case. And nowhere do they acknowledge this Court’s decision to grant certiorari on a closely related question in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.
None of Respondents’ objections to review hold water. The circuit split is unusually crisp; Arkansas’s reading of precedent is far superior to Respondents’ and at least cert-worthy; Respondents’ vehicular arguments are meritless; and the urgency of review, as illustrated by the true numbers of selective abortions, is manifest.

#2. Rutledge lays out the overriding importance of the issues at hand, what many have called discrimination-based abortions:

But amid the usual sniping about vehicles and splits, one thing should not be lost. This is not a case about just any ambiguity of a vexed abortion jurisprudence. This case is about whether selective abortion may cause a small group of people with disabilities “to wither or disappear.” It’s about whether selective abortion will continue to send people with Down syndrome messages of inferiority that once received may never be forgotten. And it’s about whether the laws of 12 States and counting enacted 2 to prevent these harms, four in the Circuit below, can be given effect. The Court not only needs to decide this case; it needs to decide it now

This echoes the sentiments of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas whose observations on this phase of the abortion discussion we have written at least a half a dozen times. For example, see here; here; here and here which are Justice Thomas’s own words beginning on page 15.
#3. Under the blunt subhead, “The court of appeals’ decision is wrong,” Rutledge writes

This Court [the Supreme Court] has always upheld abortion regulations that reasonably further compelling interests, whether they impose substantial burdens or not. Arkansas’s law directly furthers two undeniably compelling interests: protecting a small group of people with disabilities from elimination, and protecting those who remain from receiving the stigmatic message that their lives aren’t worth living. The court of appeals’ decision, which refused to even consider those interests, conflicts with this Court’s precedent and cannot stand.

To reiterate, the issue at stake could hardly be more important:  whether we will sit idly by while eugenic is allowed to again rear its ugly head.

Biden in Hot Water After it’s Discovered He Used Private Email to Send Government Information to Hunter While VP

Biden in Hot Water After it’s Discovered He Used Private Email to Send Government Information to Hunter While VP

Damning information has surfaced against Joe Biden in a new report.
Biden is accused of using a personal email account during the Obama years to send confidential government information to his son Hunter Biden.

Joe was receiving information from the State Department as vice president. Meanwhile, his son Hunter was allegedly “globetrotting” and making “foreign deals,” the report says.
The use of the private email address raises questions of federal law as well as requirements of the Presidential Records Act.
These emails were reportedly uncovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was seized by the FBI in December 2019 from a Delaware computer shop owner. Joe would sometimes sign-off the emails as “Dad,” using the account [email protected]
Some of the messages were deeply personal and others were political in nature, the report adds.

Perhaps most damning of all, some emails clearly addressed business matters and forwarded information from senior officials in the White House, the State Department and other government agencies.
Additionally, Hunter Biden reached out to his father on a few occasions using the private email address to ask for help.
In January 2012, Hunter requested to have the vice president prepare a video message for an event honoring Texas Democratic activist Ben Barnes. In response, Joe said, “We are working on it.”
In June 2014, Hunter suggested someone he wanted to see appointed as a detailee to the Treasury Department. “Before you fill the positions, pls talk to me,” Hunter wrote. In response, Joe said “Call me right away, Dad.”

— Advertisement —

Joe and Hunter also discussed the topic of running for president in 2016, coming to and from the [email protected] account.
More from the report:
A former senior Obama administration official confirmed to Just the News that some administration officials knew of the [email protected] email address for Joe Biden and used it from time to time. “I saw it used to communicate with his family and friends or to pass information to them,” the official told Just the News, speaking only on condition of anonymity because of fear of reprisal.
The emails obtained by Just the News show numerous Obama administration officials communicated or were aware of the private email address or had their information sent to it, including current Secretary of State Tony Blinken…

Beyond establishing that Joe Biden sent government information to his son, the existence of the private email address also raises questions of federal law, as Hillary Clinton’s email server showed. Biden had an obligation to preserve any emails involving his government work under federal records law, even if he used a private email address.
“The Presidential Records Act required Joe Biden to make sure that any of his gmail account emails, including these emails to Hunter Biden, were forwarded to a government account so they could properly be handled by the National Archives,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “No wonder the Obama White House wanted to protect Hillary Clinton from the consequences of [her] email shell game!”
“We might know more beginning next year,” added the veteran public records watchdog, “when Judicial Watch and the public can begin filing FOIAs for Obama White House emails.”
The White House press office did not respond to a call and email from Just the News seeking comment Tuesday. George Mesires, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, also did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Abortion Activist Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Charges He Sexually Assaulted 5 Women

Abortion Activist Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Charges He Sexually Assaulted 5 Women

Hollywood icon and abortion activist Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on charges he sexually assaulted five women. The disgraced movie producer pleaded not guilty to 11 sexual assault charges in a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday
“His lawyers filed a motion to dismiss three of the 11 counts against him, saying the statute of limitations has expired. The attorney also requested a medical evaluation, which the judge granted,” CNN reported. “The 11 charges include four counts of forcible rape, four counts of forcible oral copulation, two counts of sexual battery by restraint, and one count of sexual penetration by use of force. The alleged assaults involve five women between 2004 and 2013. His next court appearance is July 29.”
Last year, Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison after he was found guilty of first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape.
Weinstein, who is connected with Planned Parenthood and top pro-abortion politicians like Hillary Clinton, was charged with five sex crimes, including rape and predatory sexual assault. The jury released its decision last month and found him not guilty on the most serious charge, predatory sexual assault, which could have netted him a life decision. But the Hollywood mogul faced up to 25 years in prison on the other charges on which he was convicted.
Last month, a New York judge approved his extradition to Los Angeles County for him to face further charges.
Weinstein has denied the allegations, according to his spokesman Juda Engelmayer.
LifeNews is now on GETTR. Please follow us for the latest pro-life news at https://gettr.com/user/lifenewshq
“Harvey Weinstein has always maintained that every one of his physical encounters throughout his entire life have been consensual. That hasn’t changed,” Engelmayer said.
Before he faced public scrutiny over the charges, Harvey Weinstein and his wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, attended Planned Parenthood’s 100th-anniversary gala in New York City.
At the celebration, Planned Parenthood awarded former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton the Champion of the Century Award. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Weinstein gave Clinton a standing ovation at the event where she insisted on the “morality” of “reproductive health care” (aka abortion) and stressed “trusting and valuing women.”
“Protecting access to the full range of reproductive health care. It is a health issue, of course, it is a core economic issue. Women in every corner of our country understand that intimately. And anyone who wants to lead should also understand that fundamentally, this is an issue of morality,” Clinton said. “I wish it were common ground, but I know for sure it is higher ground. And I believe, as you do, that trusting and valuing women is the right and moral position to take.”
According to Artnet editor Sarah Cascone, Weinstein also purchased artwork by British painter Cecily Brown at a charity auction at the gala for $100,000.
After LifeNews and other outlets reported on the connection, Planned Parenthood tried to distance itself from Weinstein, saying the pledge “went unfulfilled,” according to Breitbart.
“Harvey Weinstein is not and has never been a donor to Planned Parenthood Federation of America,” a Planned Parenthood spokesperson told Breitbart. “The $100,000 pledge referenced went unfulfilled.”
It seems odd that he would attend a charity dinner for Planned Parenthood and not make a donation. He even sat at a prominent table, beside Hillary Clinton and several well-known female actresses, according to the report.
Whether he donated or not, Weinstein has supported the abortion chain in other ways. In 2012, he promoted Planned Parenthood during an expensive fundraising banquet at his waterfront home in Connecticut for pro-abortion President Barack Obama, the Hartford Courant reports.
“Leading with your heart is the utmost for this president,” Weinstein said in his introduction of Obama. “Fighting for Planned Parenthood and protecting women’s rights, this president has fought the good fight.”
The Hartford Courant, which reported the statement last week, pointed out: “Weinstein’s comments that night about ‘protecting women’s rights’ provide a sharp contrast to the widespread allegations of sexual harassment that have been levied against him in recent days by multiple actresses.”
While none of the accusations against Weinstein involve abortion, sexual abuse and abortion frequently are connected. Legalized abortion provides a convenient way for sexual abusers to cover up their crimes, and abortion clinics have been caught agreeing to help cover up sexual abuse.
Weinstein is known for movies such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “The English Patient” and “The King’s Speech.”

VIRGINIA: ‘Conservative Outsider’ Taylor Keeney is a Never Trumper, Supported Impeachment, Worked for Cindy McCain

VIRGINIA: ‘Conservative Outsider’ Taylor Keeney is a Never Trumper, Supported Impeachment, Worked for Cindy McCain

Though she’s running for the GOP nomination to Congress in Virginia’s 7th District as a “conservative outsider” capable of taking on the radical left and career politicians, Taylor Keeney has a long history of aligning herself with both, having shown support for the never-Trump wing of the GOP establishment since 2016. Keeney even backed efforts to remove Trump from office just months before announcing her run for Congress, and has previously worked as an aide to Cindy McCain.
Taylor Keeney recently announced her run for Congress, releasing a campaign ad parroting high priority conservative talking points and vowing to fight against the “extreme agenda” of the far-left and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the ad, Keeney also promises to “restore integrity” to America’s elections and fight for voter-ID while taking on career politicians though notably absent from the ad were mentions of immigration control and border security.

Though she casts herself as a “conservative outsider,” Keeney appears to be anything but, having worked as a press assistant for Cindy McCain during John McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign and going on to work as press secretary for former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell during his time in office.
As early as 2016, Keeney was showing support for anti-Trump content over Twitter, having “liked” dozens of anti-Trump tweets from the so-called never-Trump wing of the GOP establishment. In one of her Tweets from 2016, Keeney supported calls from ex-GOP Senator Jeff Flake for then-candidate Trump to drop out of the Presidential race, just a month ahead of Election Day, a move that would have guaranteed a Clinton victory. Keeney also showed support for anti-Trump tweets from the Lincoln Project’s Rick Wilson, and never-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro when she called Trump and his supporters “delusional.”

Four years later, Keeney’s support for the attacks on Trump continued as she retweeted Mitt Romney’s efforts to virtue signal to Democrats and hurt the Trump campaign just weeks ahead of Election Day.

Keeney sat silent for months as Republican voters, elected officials, and the Trump campaign fought for election integrity – supposedly a top campaign issue for Keeney – amidst historic allegations and documented evidence of Democrat electioneering and flat-out election fraud. Instead, Keeney liked multiple tweets congratulating Joe Biden on his election “victory” before all the votes were even counted.

When the far-left Democrats and members of the never-Trump GOP establishment attempted to impeach the President in the closing days of his administration, Keeney showed them support over Twitter yet again, liking a post from ex-GOP Congresswoman Barbara Comstock as she wrote that was “so proud” of GOP Rep. Liz Cheney “and her support for impeachment.”
“It is long past time for principled conservatives to make their stand,” another anti-Trump, pro-impeachment Tweet liked by Keeney reads. “Liz Cheney is a fearless leader and we need more like her in office.”

Beyond impeachment, Keeney again showed support for the never-Trump GOP establishment and their collective battle against America First conservatives and election integrity, liking a post from her former boss, Cindy McCain, as she led a coup attempt within the Arizona GOP against Chairwoman Kelli Ward over her efforts to ensure that every legal vote was counted in Arizona’s 2020 Presidential Election.

“Future Republican candidates really have to question if the current party leadership represents their philosophy and values. Time for some soul searching in the Arizona GOP,” McCain’s tweet read above a report announcing that she had drafted a censure resolution against Chairwoman Ward. Ultimately, the censure effort was unsuccessful, as was McCain’s attempt to challenge Ward for the party’s chairmanship, and McCain herself was ultimately censured by the Arizona GOP alongside never-Trump ex-Senator Jeff Flake.

Missouri Heads to Federal Court to Defend Abortion Ban Protecting Babies From Abortion

Missouri Heads to Federal Court to Defend Abortion Ban Protecting Babies From Abortion

Missouri will have another chance to defend its 2019 law to protect unborn babies from abortion before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The court recently agreed to hear the case after a three-judge panel on the Eighth Circuit ruled against the law in June, the AP reports. The exact date of the hearing is not yet known.
The Missouri Stands For the Unborn Act bans discriminatory abortions based on an unborn baby’s sex, race or Down syndrome diagnosis, and bans abortions completely once Roe v. Wade is overturned.
It also prohibits abortions after eight weeks, once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. Additionally, the law includes incremental stages to ban abortions after 14 weeks, 18 weeks or 20 weeks if the earlier bans are overturned in court. It also requires that both parents be notified before an underage girl has an abortion.
Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit soon after the law passed, and the courts have refused to allow Missouri to enforce it.
In a statement, Yamelsie Rodríguez, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region, said the court’s decision to re-hear the case is a “troubling signal” for the future of abortion. Planned Parenthood runs the only abortion facility in the state.

“We have long said the fight to protect abortion access in Missouri is far from over,” Rodríguez said. “The Eighth Circuit’s sudden change to reconsider Missouri’s sweeping abortion ban — one the court said was unconstitutional — is just another troubling signal in a long line of threats to our reproductive freedom.”
After the initial ruling in June, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the law and resolve a circuit court split about whether states may prohibit eugenic abortions that discriminate against unborn babies because of certain traits, such as Down syndrome.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a similar law in Ohio in April, but the Eighth Circuit ruled against another Down syndrome abortion ban in Arkansas in January. The Seventh Circuit also ruled against another Indiana law in 2018.
“Unborn children with Down syndrome are aborted at epidemic rates,” Schmitt’s petition tells the Supreme Court. “In the face of this genocidal crisis, Missouri and at least 11 other states have enacted laws restricting the eugenic abortion of the disabled, especially those with Down syndrome. In 2019, this Court declined to review the Seventh Circuit’s decision invalidating one of these laws—Indiana’s—because no circuit split yet existed. Since then, a clear and well-developed split of authority has emerged.”
According to Missouri health statistics, 1,471 abortions were done in 2019 in the state.
Unborn babies with Down syndrome especially are targeted for abortions, with abortion rates as high as 100 percent in some countries after a prenatal diagnosis.
In 1973, the Supreme Court took away states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion through Roe v. Wade, and instead allowed abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.
However, the Supreme Court recently agreed to hear a challenge to a Mississippi law that bans abortions after 15 weeks. The Mississippi case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization focuses on the question of “whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortion are unconstitutional.” The court is scheduled to hear the case in October.

———————————-

The following is a statement from Mr. Gerald Buglione taken on Monday July 19th 2021. The statement was conducted via telephone. Mr Buglione resides in Surprise Arizona, the undersigned was in New Jersey. 

Q) Mr. Buglione, where do you currently reside?

A) Surprise Arizona 

Q) Mr. Buglione  can you state your professional work experience

A) I was a Newark Police Officer for 28 years. I started in 1986 and retired June 1 2014 with the rank of Lieutenant 

Q) Can you tell me your assignments as a member of the Newark Police Department?

A) From 1991 to 1997 I was a Detective in the narcotics unit. From 1997 to 2000 I was a Detective in the intelligence unit. 2000 to 2001 I was a police sergeant. From 2001 until 2006 I was Detective Lieutenant. I supervised a detective unit investigating aggravated assaults, thefts and burglaries . In 2006 I was promoted to Lieutenant and supervised a detective unit investigation citizen complaints .I also supervised special operations with the DEA, Customs and Postal Service, I did this from 2006 to 2007.  When I was then transferred to the narcotics and gang squad. Here we did long term  narcotics and gang investigations, gathered intelligence . I was using our intelligence to work with the Essex and Hudson County Homicide task force which I was also assigned to. Where I retired from on June 1 2014 with 28 years of service. 

Q) After you retired did you continue to work?

A) Yes ,I worked for Global Mark Security from 2016 to 2019 doing armed security, threat assessment and investigation. 

Q) Since you have moved to Arizona, have you continued to work? and where?

A) I worked security for Wigwam Resort, Litchfield Arizona from January 2020 until the end of November 2020, I was furloughed for the month of July. 

Q) In your role of security officer for the resort did you come across a situation that you thought unusual? and can you explain what occurred ?

A) Yes I did, In September 0f 2020 a company called Fieldworks LLC rented 2 ballrooms for six weeks preceding the 2020 presidential election, as part of my duties I was to check on and secure all hotel facilities and ballrooms, when I went to the two ballrooms rented by Fieldworks LLC I was denied access. I was told by Fieldworks workers I was not allowed in . I question them as to why, as I was resort security and that was our job to safeguard all property and possessions, I was given a stern answer that I was not allowed in the two ballrooms. I found this strange because security had always had access to every location ,as these were big money high end ballrooms. I asked them what they are there for and again they refused to answer stating I was not allowed in. Security was never denied access to the ballrooms by any other entity. Even Vice President Mike Pence had utilized these ballrooms and the Secret Service submitted an itinerary and co ordinated with hotel security. 

Q) What did you do next?

A) I went to check for the itinerary  for contact information, this is hotel standard procedure, I was unable to find the itinerary. Fieldworks had either not given one to the hotel or was hiding it.I asked some of the other security personnel if they knew where it was, No one did.  I went to my boss and asked him what this was all about all he told me was they were a political group and he didn’t know anything else.  

Q) What happened during the course of Fieldworks time at the resort?A) During my rounds I noticed there was a sign up ,they were hiring people to work for $21 an hour, I asked some of the other resort workers about this and I was told they were recruiting workers for voter registration.  During their time there I observed people constantly moving in and out of the ballrooms and they were moving boxes back and forth in and out.The ballrooms were filled with computers and workers and boxes of voting ballots.  One day there was a Federal express package at the desk for them and I delivered it to the ballroom, no one was at the door so I went in looking for someone, when I went into the ballroom with the package I saw voting ballots loaded in bins, the room was filled with them. I was then approached by a Fieldworks worked and they told me I was not allowed to be in there. I told them I was bringing them a package. They took the package and told me to leave. These were the same boxes that they were wheeling in and out the whole time, I then found out that they were hiring workers from Arizona to drive to Georgia and work there. Also the Fieldworks group was working strange hours, coming in extra early and parking with immunity, not following any of the rules, I went to the Director of Security and asked him about this group and the activities that were going on and he ignored me. I asked some of the other resort workers about them and was met with silence ,no one wanted to talk or get involved. 

Q)What were feelings based on these observations ?

A) Based on my experience in investigations and what I knew about the presidential election I believed this was election fraud and ballot harvesting. 

Q) What else did you do?

A) I made a phone call to Congresswoman Debbie Lasko , she is the congresswoman for Surprise Arizona. I wanted to forward the information to her. I spoke to a staffer who was not interested in what I had to say, the staffer told me the Congresswoman or someone would get back to me but they never did. I then placed a phone call to Stan Fitzgerald because I knew he was working on the Georgia election and forwarded the information I had to him 

Q) You said based on your experience in the field of investigations that you think this was ballot harvesting and election fraud. Can you tell me have you ever testified in court?

A) Yes  

Q) Have you ever testified as an expert witness in court?

Below is a photo taken of ballots sent from Arizona to Georgia during the 2020 election cycle, produced by Runbeck Election Services, a firm tied closely to the Democrat Party. The ballots were found in a warehouse in Fulton County, GA. after Nov 3rd.

————————–

WPolitics reported the following in January of this year:

————————-

Runbeck Election Services has a website where they affirm:

Since 1972, Runbeck Election Services has preserved the integrity of the American democratic process. We partner with cities, counties and states to provide a trusted election experience with ballot print and mail services, and equipment and software technology solutions that are accurate, transparent and efficient.

Rey Valenzuela, the Director of Elections for Maricopa County Arizona is listed on the front page of Runbeck’s website. He provides the one and only testimony of Runbeck where he shares:

Runbeck Elections is a subject matter expert on the process. They are always involved and want to know more. Runbeck is reliant as a partner, not a vendor; their competence helps them identify issues before they become an issue.

Having the Director of Elections for Maricopa County Arizona as your reference is not a good thing; it clearly indicates connections to corrupt election activities.

Although not listed as a member of the Executive Team, Brian Runbeck identifies himself as the Client Services Manager/Project Manager and Production Coordinator at Runbeck Election Services.

He manages the production of election ballots and related official election material. He says he handles high-pressure deadlines and high volume production.

Mr. Runbeck also made 50 different donations to Act Blue, Biden for President, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee between August 15 and October 30, 2020:

Fieldworks was investigated in PA in 2016 for voter fraud reported WPVI TV as shown below:

————————

MEDIA, Pa. (WPVI) — The issue of voter fraud has become part of the political conversation this year, with complaints and warnings coming primarily from the Republican side of the coin.

Thursday morning, Congressman Patrick Meehan called for United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch to launch an investigation of FieldWorks LLC.

FieldWorks bills itself as a Democratic Grassroots organization.

State Police raided its Delaware County office earlier this week, looking for evidence of voter registration fraud.

Meehan and other local Republicans question whether roughly 7,000 registrations were submitted by the Oct. 11 deadline and other irregularities.

“What do you do about the 52 registrations in which there’s no valid address? It’s not that there’s no valid address. There’s an address listed. There’s just no such location in Delaware County,” said Meehan.

FieldWorks denied any wrongdoing in a statement to Action News, and said it’s cooperating with investigators.

Witnesses will also present testimony of alleged election fraud in ballot harvesting in GA.

Background- Target company is Fieldworks LLC , a Democrat operative organization whose Delaware County office was raided by the PA state police in 2016 seeking evidence of voter registration fraud. In December 2020 their website was offering employment in GA for what we allege was ballot curing in the upcoming Senate run off on Jan 5th. Curing of course is not illegal but in GA the state has specific laws and procedures, none of which include third parties going to homes and handling the ballots – at that point it becomes criminal harvesting. GA requires cured ballots to be mailed back by the voter prior to the election or they must vote in person on election day. The November election was plagued with harvesting in GA , in fact David Litt of the Biden campaign itself boldly tweeted on November 4th at 5:32pm — “Anyone in Georgia? Team Joe needs people to go door to door helping voters fix their mail in ballots so they count. Sign up! “ The problem is based on my understanding of Georgia law there is no way these ballots could be mailed in the special secured cured envelopes so the voters were supposed to vote in person making the tweet from the Biden campaign a criminal conspiracy to commit ballot harvesting.

Federal Judge Blocks Arkansas Law Banning Abortions That Would Save 3,000 Babies a Year

Federal Judge Blocks Arkansas Law Banning Abortions That Would Save 3,000 Babies a Year

A federal judge blocked Arkansas on Tuesday from enforcing a new law that would protect thousands of unborn babies by banning almost all abortions in the state.
The Independent reports federal Judge Kristine Baker issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the state from enforcing the law, which is scheduled to go into effect July 28.
Baker described the law as “categorically unconstitutional” because it prohibits abortions before the unborn baby is viable.
The Arkansas Unborn Child Protection Act (Senate Bill 6), which passed the state legislature by a strong majority in March, bans all abortions in the state. It allows exceptions if the mother’s life or health are at risk. Abortionists who violate the ban would face up to 10 years in prison, but women would not be punished for violating the law.
The law could protect nearly 3,000 unborn babies from abortions in Arkansas every year.
Citing Roe v. Wade, Baker said the law likely will be struck down as a violation of “personal liberty,” the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports.

“This right is grounded in the right to privacy rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment’s concept of personal liberty, which was found to be ‘broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy,’” she ruled.
A spokeswoman for state Attorney General Leslie Rutledge told the International Business Times that she was disappointed by Baker’s decision. She said the attorney general will review the decision to “consider the appropriate next step to protect the life of the unborn.”
Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit challenging the pro-life law. Responding Tuesday, ACLU attorney Meagan Burrows said she hopes Baker’s decision will discourage other states from passing pro-life laws.
“The court’s ruling today should serve as a stark reminder to anti-abortion politicians in Arkansas and other states that they cannot strip people of their right to make the deeply personal decision about whether to have an abortion or continue a pregnancy,” Burrows said.
But state Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, who sponsored the legislation, said Arkansas will fight for unborn babies’ right to life all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Where is the conscience of the court? Judge Kristine Baker never fails to strike down pro-life laws in Arkansas,” Rapert told the Democrat Gazette. “She’s basing her decision on the same type of claptrap we always hear which ends up in the killing of unborn babies in our state and in the nation.”
Here’s more from the report:

Asked if he sees any validity to the arguments of opponents of the ban, Rapert was unequivocal.
“No,” Rapert said. “There is no valid viewpoint to kill an unborn child, except to save the life of the mother.”

Gov. Asa Hutchinson told CNN in March that overturning Roe v. Wade is one of the goals of the law.
“[The law] is not constitutional under Supreme Court cases right now,” Hutchinson said. “… And so I signed it because it is a direct challenge to Roe vs. Wade – that was the intent of it. I think there’s a very narrow chance that the Supreme Court will accept that case but we’ll see.”
Since 1973, the U.S. 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 (about six weeks), laws banning discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with disabilities, and laws banning abortions after the first trimester.
Recently, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a Mississippi case and 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 abortions in the second and third trimesters. 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.

We all know that the Democrats cheated in the 2020 election. And the AZ audit uncovered ways in which the election was stolen.
Check out a few of the things discovered in the AZ audit based on what Liz Harrington tweeted:

18,000 voted and then were removed from rolls AFTER election
74,243 mail-in ballots w/ NO evidence of ever being sent
— Liz Harrington (@realLizUSA) July 15, 2021

Democrats’ dirty tricks are being exposed in Arizona. And soon they will be exposed elsewhere.

How will they get away with this next election? Short answer: they won’t. Thus their panic to steal as much as they can during the era of Captain Demento.

Let’s look at each of these things documented in the hearings in AZ:
Clearly we can remove the 3,981 voted registered AFTER the Oct 15 deadline. These votes are illegal. And you can bet overwhelmingly these votes went to Biden.
And what of the 11,326 voters who were NOT on rolls on Nov 7 but WERE on Dec 4? Again, I’d bet you dollars to dog turds that almost all of these votes went to Biden. They would have given Trump just enough to pretend that these are legit.
And what of the 18,000 voters who were counted then were removed from rolls AFTER election? Coincidence as well? I’m going to guess these were likely DEAD PEOPLE who were used to help Biden win a state he had no chance in hell of winning legitimately.
Finally, the coup de gras of the coup d’etat. 74,243 mail-in ballots with no evidence of ever being sent.
Remember the number of votes Biden needed to beat Trump? Actually, the “faked” numbers, 10,000+.
Almost any one of these issues found by Arizona would provide a Trump win against the illegitimate votes of Biden. Democrats knew this would be the case in EVERY battleground state. Truthfully, Biden would be lucky to win California without massive voter fraud by the Democrats.
One of my friends claims that Trump actually won New York. Frankly, I believe him; particularly after learning what we know about Arizona.

SlideWe’re Celebrating 1776 All Month LongAT THE KEVIN JACKSON NETWORKSlideWe’re Celebrating 1776 All Month LongAT THE KEVIN JACKSON NETWORKSlideWe’re Celebrating 1776 All Month LongAT THE KEVIN JACKSON NETWORK

So this information is beyond huge.
Arizona did what Bob Barr should have done. Remember Barr? The turncoat Bush-Era-turned-Trump-AG who claimed that voter fraud didn’t occur. What a f*cking moron.
Outside of what Dominion Voting Systems did specifically, the Arizona recount revealed the many ways Democrats cheated.
States like Florida and Texas have put in some protections against voter ballot manipulation, but not enough have done so.

Finally: GA House Speaker Just Made The Move We’ve All Been Waiting For…

Finally: GA House Speaker Just Made The Move We’ve All Been Waiting For…

The day has finally come folks…
It looks like Georgia is on the way to finally addressing its controversial 2020 election results with a proper investigation.
TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!

And not one of those pathetic, half-hearted investigations, but a full forensic audit that’ll look into real fraudulent actions surrounding the election.

Western Journal reported that Georgia House Speaker David Ralston has indicated that demands to find out exactly what went down in Fulton County during the 2020 election perhaps haven’t gone unheeded.
According to Just the News, Ralston has demanded an investigation to “determine if any irregularities or willful fraud occurred” in Fulton County — which houses much of Atlanta.

More from Wayne Dupree

It’s no secret that Fulton County also houses a significant portion of the state’s Democratic voters. In fact, it’s one of the few blue islands in a sea of red every election season.
And these voters have little admiration for former President Donald Trump — as a Georgian, I can tell you that firsthand.
MORE NEWS: [AUDIO] Dozens of Jan 6th “Political Prisoners” Sing National Anthem Every Night at 9pm While in Jail

But perhaps Fulton County’s implicit liberal bias invites us to consider if it has something to do with the entire state’s “blue mirage,” if you will.
Ralston entertained that notion at least enough to make his request.
In a Thursday letter directed to Fulton County Elections Director Richard Barron, Ralston called upon the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to explore the possibility of election fraud in Fulton County.

“Recently, media reports have surfaced which call into question the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election,” he wrote.

“These reports have been accompanied by video and other evidence which is part of ongoing litigation and requires thorough examination and explanation,” Ralston said.
“Given the seriousness of this situation and the possible repercussions for our state and nation, it is time we have an independent investigation — once and for all — of the way in which Fulton County conducted, counted, and audited the November 2020 Presidential Election.”

The McCarthyism is Anti-Trump

The McCarthyism is Anti-Trump

Peter Spiegel, U.S. managing editor of the Financial Times, produced an interesting but highly flawed piece the other day in which he described a recent revelation that struck him as a key to understanding Donald Trump. Trump, he realized, is essentially the latest incarnation of Joseph McCarthy, the Wisconsin senator from the 1950s who leveraged national anxieties about communism to brutalize his political enemies.“Like Trump,” writes Spiegel, “the late Republican senator played on the fears of working-class Americans and used falsehoods and demagoguery to catapult himself into dominance of the Washington scene.” For further insight into this revelation, Spiegel telephoned Larry Tye, author of a 2016 book called Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy. Tye suggests that McCarthy and Trump can be thrown together as examples of “America’s love affair with bullies.” This “bully” characterization, which Spiegel quotes approvingly, is interesting in two respects. First, it insults the American people as a population unmoored from any intrinsic regard for the principle of fair play in politics. This is simplistic to the point of distortion. Further, it perpetuates an inaccurate portrayal of the unfortunate McCarthy episode in American history, which leads inevitably to a faulty understanding of the meaning of Trump in our own time.To untangle this mess, we must begin with a definition of McCarthyism. Spiegel defines it as “a slightly paranoid take on the threat posed by international communism.” Webster’s fills this out nicely by saying it is “the use of indiscriminate, often unfounded, accusations, sensationalism, inquisitorial investigative methods, etc., ostensibly in suppression of communism.” But, inevitably, neither definition provides a sense of the political environments that breed these inquisitorial investigative methods. This hinders a full understanding of this particular political phenomenon. Hollywood movies and intellectual historians present a consistent view of the Wisconsin senator as coming totally out of the blue, roiling a serene nation with utterly false and brutal accusations of communist activity when there was absolutely no basis for any such accusations. That seems to be the Spiegel interpretation. It’s false. Just two weeks before McCarthy’s first anticommunist rant, Alger Hiss, accused of passing secret U.S. documents to a Soviet spy when he was a high-level government official, was convicted of perjury in the matter. Then the government reported that Klaus Fuchs, a British physicist who had worked at the Los Alamos atomic-weapons facility during the war, had been arrested as a Soviet spy. These developments, along with other revelations of lax security measures in many government agencies, generated powerful anxieties at a time when most Americans believed, correctly, that the U.S. nuclear monopoly had been the margin of security in saving Western Europe from being overrun by the Soviets. In other words, McCarthyism, properly understood, is about how people behave when there really is reason for concern or even alarm, as there was in McCarthy’s day. But, if Spiegel wants to make the McCarthy analogy in relation to Trump, let’s do it—beginning with the sturm und drang surrounding allegations that Trump was an “agent” in thrall to Russian handlers, a “tool” of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Now here’s an episode of the Trump era that truly fits the definition of McCarthyism: “use of indiscriminate, often unfounded, accusations,” check; “sensationalism,” check; “inquisitorial investigative methods,” check. Only a zealous partisan could look at that sordid tale and insist that what was done to Trump was not a display of McCarthyism, as we understand the term. Consider Representative Adam Schiff of California, who pronounced to the American people that he had the evidence on Trump, “and it is more than just circumstantial.” The only thing missing from this abject McCarthyite behavior were the phrases, “I have here in my hand….” and “a conspiracy so immense….” Or consider the behavior of the country’s top intelligence officials under Barack Obama: James Clapper and John Brennan. Brennan said that “Watergate pales really…compared to what we’re confronting now.” He dismissed Trump’s protests of innocence as “hogwash,” which constituted a roundabout allegation of treason. He crystallized the point more directly by saying the president’s behavior following a Helsinki meeting with Putin was “nothing short of treasonous.” Clapper, meanwhile, invoked the constitutional definition of treason when he said Trump was “essentially aiding and abetting the Russians.” Asked if Trump was a Russian asset, as former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe had suggested was possible, Clapper said, “I completely agree with the way Andy characterized it.” It turned out, of course, that all this was bogus. Robert Mueller’s unconstrained and targeted investigation spent $25 million in assembling 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents and other officials, issuing 2,800 subpoenas, interviewing 500 witnesses, and inspecting thousands of emails. In the end it found “insufficient evidence” for any charges related to the allegation of “Russian collusion.” In a sense it could be argued that this is a more serious form of McCarthyism than that perpetrated by McCarthy himself, given that McCarthy’s behavior was undergirded by more actual disturbing facts than the anti-Trump frenzy. Take, for example, McCarthy’s last great political assault, on the army, which proved his undoing when the army and the Eisenhower administration finally decided to fight back with enough fury to bring down the demagogic senator over his improper efforts to influence military personnel decisions to benefit a McCarthy friend (and, perhaps more importantly, a friend of McCarthy’s sinister aide, Roy Cohn). Spiegel calls this “McCarthy’s Rubicon,” though he glosses over some pertinent facts. Postwar columnists Joseph and Stewart Alsop, though fervent in their anti-McCarthy convictions, understood better than most journalists just how vulnerable Eisenhower was to the Wisconsin senator’s demagoguery. That’s because years earlier they had discovered “the most serious infiltration of communists in the American government,” as Stewart Alsop described it in a private letter to his editor. It was in Eisenhower’s command during his time as supreme commander of Allied forces after World War II. Now, as the final McCarthy battle heated up, the brothers’ reporting pieced together a picture of a communist fifth column that had controlled financial and manpower policy throughout the Eisenhower command, had fostered the communist takeover of some major West German newspapers, and had almost handed control of the German labor unions to communist cadres. This was serious misfeasance, but the Alsop brothers never wrote the story. Instead, Joseph Alsop sought an audience with Eisenhower’s chief of staff Sherman Adams, the former New Hampshire governor, so he could outline the situation and seek an assurance that the administration intended to fight McCarthy before he could unleash his viper’s tongue on Eisenhower himself, based on this old and now-irrelevant information. “Alsop, we’ll fight,” said Adams.“Well,” said Alsop, “that was all I came to find out, governor. Leaving my notes with you, I have forgotten the conversation already.” What this demonstrates is that communism was in fact a serious menace in various precincts of government in the early postwar period, and it needed attention. This certainly doesn’t excuse McCarthy’s effort to seek political leverage by blowing the threat out of proportion and stirring up civic fears beyond the real situation. But it certainly provides some political context. It demonstrates also that McCarthyism is rampant in our politics today, and it isn’t confined merely to those considered boorish and heretical by journalistic and political figures such as Adam Schiff and Peter Spiegel. Of Trump, it can be said that he brought about a major accomplishment in American politics when he forced into the national debate topics and civic concerns that had been ignored or suppressed for years by the political establishment. Then, after riding that attainment into the White House, he proved to be a complete political incompetent whose unseemly antics undercut his achievements, and who set back his party and his cause far more than he advanced them. But, viewed in the context of the true nature of McCarthyism, then and now, he’s less a perpetrator of those poisonous tactics than a victim of them. Robert W. Merry, veteran Washington journalist and publishing executive, is the author most recently of President McKinley: Architect of the American Century (Simon & Schuster).

Revealed: Sex crimes against children are skyrocketing – and countless suspects are illegal immigrants

Revealed: Sex crimes against children are skyrocketing – and countless suspects are illegal immigrants

NORTH CAROLINA — There has been a tremendous increase in child sexual assault cases during the past year in North Carolina, but there are mixed reviews on who is responsible for the spike of sex crimes against children here and in other states.
One organization claims crimes are being committed mostly by native U.S. citizens while others say the increase is due to illegal immigrants with criminal histories coming into the U.S.
Months after the Biden administration canceled a program that deported illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes, the Border Patrol reports a stunning 3,166% increase in sex offenders crossing into the U.S. illegally via Mexico. READ: https://t.co/FbrJDD8hvA— Judicial Watch ⚖️ (@JudicialWatch) June 28, 2021
A recent study by the Cato Institute used crime data from Texas and concluded that legal and undocumented immigrants were determined to be more law-abiding than native U.S. citizens:
“The results in this updated brief show that in Texas in 2019, illegal immigrants were 37.1 percent less likely to be convicted of a crime than native‐​born Americans and legal immigrants were about 57.2 percent less likely to be convicted of a crime than native‐​born Americans. 
“The conviction and arrest rates for illegal immigrants were lower than those for native‐​born Americans but higher than those for legal immigrants. This result holds for just about every type of crime, including homicide, sex crimes, larceny, and most other crimes.”
The study further reported:
“The vast majority of research finds that immigrants do not increase local crime rates and that they are less likely to commit crime or be incarcerated than native‐​born citizens.
“There is less research on illegal immigrant criminality, but it shows that illegal immigrants have lower incarceration rates nationwide relative to native‐​born Americans, had lower conviction and arrest rates in Texas in earlier years, and had the same rates of re‐​arrest in Los Angeles County in 2002.”

Data from Texas was used because it is the only state that records criminal convictions and arrests by immigration status. According to Cato Institute:
“Texas has this information because its law enforcement agencies cooperate with federal immigration enforcement authorities at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who check the biometrics of arrestees in the state and track them through to their convictions.
“The Texas DPS keeps the results of these DHS checks, which then allow a more direct look at immigrant criminality by immigration status.”
In North Carolina, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) noted a 210 percent increase in child sexual assault cases. According to a report, there have already been 31 child sexual assault cases reported to the department in 2021. The number of cases at the same time in 2020 was 10.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Mecklenburg County is one of six counties in the state that is an official sanctuary zone that hosts illegal immigrants.

The CMPD said in a statement released last month:
“It is never an easy discussion when a child is victimized in a crime. It is more concerning when there is an alarming spike in sexual assault cases involving children.
“Over time, CMPD’s Crimes Against Children Unit detectives had observed small changes in the cases from year to year but were alarmed when they observed the spike and rise for 2021.
“Detectives have experienced a 210% increase in sex assaults involving children since 2020. With that percent increase, there have been 31 cases reported in 2021, compared to 10 during the same time frame in 2020.”

During a recent press conference, Detective Jessica Hall discussed the belief that the spike might be due to a delay in reporting:
“Delay in reporting can result from the child remaining with their abuser or being in a situation where they feel unsafe to tell anyone. Due to the recent pandemic, COVID-19 removed children from student activities, thus taking them away from schools and places with a trusted adult.

Cori Goldstein, deputy chief operating officer of Safe Alliance, which helps victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, told The Charlotte Observer that 80 percent of adult sexual assault survivors know their perpetrator and that this number increases to 90 percent for child survivors:
“That idea of stranger danger and someone lurking outside the window is not typically who is assaulting others. It really is about power and control, and it’s someone known to someone.”

Goldstein also suggested that CMPD is actually seeing an increase in reports of sexual assaults after months of lockdown, which kept victims from coming forward sooner:
“I personally don’t see that there’s an increase in assaults that are occurring. I think more people are comfortable coming forward to share the assaults.

“Survivors had to navigate through trauma during that time and then make the decision of do I want to move forward and report this? … Is it even safe to speak with someone? To go to a hospital? To go report and meet with law enforcement?”
Goldstein also did not mention the citizen or immigration status of the perpetrators.
We previously reported on Jose Angel Melgar Guardado, 42, an illegal immigrant in North Carolina who was sentenced for raping his own child and assaulting another. The report noted the media avoided mentioning his immigration status.
Guardado was sentenced to jail for 18 to 27 years after he pleaded guilty to incest with a child, statutory rape of a child, indecent liberties with a child, and two counts of assault on a child under the age of 12.

Although Texas records criminal convictions and arrests by immigration status, the 49 other states seem hesitant to do so for fear of being accused of xenophobia.
To fill the gap, one private group, North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE), maintains a database of illegal immigrants arrested and charged with various sex crimes against children in North Carolina during the past few years.

WENDY ROGERS: ‘We Americans Who Love This Country Are Being Replaced’, ‘I Will Not Back Down From This Statement’

WENDY ROGERS: ‘We Americans Who Love This Country Are Being Replaced’, ‘I Will Not Back Down From This Statement’

Arizona Sen. Wendy Rogers recently caused an uproar in establishment media when she quoted an article about the surging rate of illegal immigration under Joe Biden and declared, “We are being replaced and invaded.” Instead of backing down, Rogers released a second statement doubling down and declaring that she “will not back down from this statement.”
On July 17, Rogers shared an article from Breitbart Texas and declared that revealed 730,000 migrants have crossed illegally into the United States from Mexico, and declared, “We are being replaced and invaded.”

We are being replaced and invaded. https://t.co/JEJaQjVC5E
— Wendy Rogers (@WendyRogersAZ) July 17, 2021

AZ Central, an establishment local mouthpiece of USA TODAY, ran an opinion article declaring that she is dogwhistling “to white supremacists” and called her statement “gross”. The website used another man’s words to liken her statement to “hate and extremism”, and said she is echoing the “‘great replacement’ myth” that suggests native-born American citizens are being replaced by foreign born immigrants. (READ MORE: Dick Durbin Endorses Great Replacement, Says ‘Demographics’ Are ‘Not On The Side Of The Republican Party’)
In response, Rogers released a second statement via Twitter. “Apparently the #FakeNews is triggered because I said we are being replaced,” noted Rogers. “We Americans who love this country are being replaced by people who do not love this country. I will not back down from this statement.” She added, “Communists & our enemies are using mass immigration, education, big tech, big corporations & other strategies to accomplish this. The groups who are doing this undermine our families, our history, our faith, and our rights. We need more people who love America, not less.”

Rogers has been repeatedly mentioned by President Donald Trump for her strong stance on the 2020 election. A supporter of the Arizona Audit, Rogers is now calling for the state’s 2020 electors to be recalled, as she says sufficient evidence of voter fraud and foul play was presented at a recent hearing. “I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right,” wrote Rogers.

Unborn Babies Sue Rhode Island to Stop New Law Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

Unborn Babies Sue Rhode Island to Stop New Law Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

It’s a unique situation when eligible voters team up with preborn babies to fight a violation of their constitutional rights. That’s exactly what’s happening in Rhode Island, as the current United States Secretary of Commerce and her former Rhode Island leadership team are being sued by adult voters and children in utero.
The Thomas More Society has filed an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in a lawsuit against Rhode Island’s former governor Gina Raimondo and her administration. The filing is in support of voters, pre-born babies, their mothers, and Catholics For Life, Inc. The brief, submitted to the Supreme Court of Rhode Island on July 15, 2021, argues that voters and preborn children have standing to challenge the constitutionality of Rhode Island’s 2019 Reproductive Privacy Act, which the plaintiffs say deprived them of their right to vote on an alleged constitutional right to abortion and robbed the babies of their legal rights as a person.
Thomas Olp, Vice President and Senior Counsel at the Thomas More Society, explained the substantial public interest in this case. “There are several issues here in which a lower court erred,” Olp explained. “In this case the personhood of a pre- or post-viable child in utero is not negated by the United States Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade. We are asking the court to acknowledge that a preborn child has standing to   challenge the Reproductive Privacy Act’s removal of legal protections under Rhode Island law, including the  fetal homicide law and other laws that may protect her.”
LifeNews is now on GETTR. Please follow us for the latest pro-life news at https://gettr.com/user/lifenewshq
The brief amplifies this issue stating, “In situations when the rights of a post-viable child…under fetal homicide or other protective laws, do not impinge on a woman’s right to abortion found by the U.S. Supreme Court to exist under the U.S. Constitution, it is erroneous and unjust to ignore injury to their legal interests on the ground that they are not ‘persons’ in the abortion context.”
In addition to the personhood rights of preborn children, the filing supports the rights of eligible Rhode Island voters who would have voted against a constitutional amendment recognizing the right of abortion had it been put to the vote of the electorate. The brief explains that these voters were illegally deprived of their right to vote on what amounts to a constitutional amendment when the so-named Rhode Island Reproductive Privacy Act was passed by the Rhode Island General Assembly and signed into law by the state’s governor in 2019.
The law, which recognized a right of abortion, in effect amended the state’s constitution, which explicitly states it does not grant or secure a right of abortion.  Since the constitution requires that an amendment be approved through a vote of the “whole people”, which did not occur here, Rhode Island voters who oppose a change in the constitution on abortion were denied their constitutional right to vote against it.

Lead FBI agent in alleged Whitmer “kidnapping” plot arrested for domestic violence

Lead FBI agent in alleged Whitmer “kidnapping” plot arrested for domestic violence

KALAMAZOO, MI- The Detroit News is reporting that Richard Trask, an FBI Special Agent has been arrested in connection with a domestic disturbance involving his wife this past weekend.
Trask, 39 was the FBI agent widely credited with helping to prevent an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) last year.

Interesting development in Whitmer plot
Here is the second agent/informant to be indicted for separate crimes
First informant Steve Robeson, now special agent Richard Traskhttps://t.co/vAD5nR92MA
— Darren J. Beattie 🌐 (@DarrenJBeattie) July 19, 2021

Trask, 39, of Kalamazoo, MI., was arrested Monday and charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, less than murder in connection with the incident.
He was released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond after his arraignment in a Kalamazoo court. The charge carries with it the possibility of up to 10 years in prison.
Ironically, Trask’s arrest comes as a criminal case against the five men charged with the alleged plot against Whitmer saw new allegations come forth against the FBI last week.
Defense lawyers last week slammed the government’s case and have suggested that a second FBI agent has been actively trying to sabotage the defense teams.
Trask has been an FBI agent since 2011 and was the public profile of the FBI in the Whitmer case, testifying in federal court about the investigation.
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune said they reached out to the FBI for comment and was rebuffed by an FBI spokesperson.
“In accordance with FBI policy, the incident is subject to internal review, and I cannot comment further at this time,” said Detroit FBI spokeswoman Mara Schneider.
Speaking to Trask’s involvement in the alleged kidnapping case, a former FBI official said his arrest could serve as a distraction and provide the defense with ammunition to attack Trask’s credibility.
“It’s the last thing you want for a major case like this,” said Andy Arena, who formerly ran the FBI’s Detroit field office.
“Any time you give the defense any ammunition, it’s not good.”
Arena told the Detroit News that Trask would be prohibited from carrying a gun while he’s out on bond.
“If you can’t carry a weapon, then you’re not going to work as a street agent,” he said. “He’s going to be suspended or put on restricted duty.”
The paper said they reached out to Trask for comment, however he did not respond. They also noted that no defense lawyer was named on court records.
Trask, who looks more like a reincarnation of Dan Hagerty’s “Grizzly Adams” character, opened a gym at his property in a town adjacent to Kalamazoo, and offers CrossFit training, social media and state business filings revealed.
Trask also gives the appearance of somewhat of a narcissist, having pictures on his Instagram showing him exercising, flexing his muscles and posing shirtless. 
Last week, defense lawyers for the defendants in the Whitmer case gave a hint about how they will approach putting on a defense in the case, which drew significant media attention when it came to light.
This was at a time when people were tiring of restrictive coronavirus mandates from tyrannical governors, with Whitmer identified as being one of the worst. Mainstream left-wing media seized on the arrests to paint lockdown and mask opponents as right-wing extremists.
Court filings in the case indicate the defense plans to work on suppressing evidence, going after the FBI and claiming the men were entrapped by FBI agents and operatives who actively conspired, and in some cases fomented the plot.
The News said that five men are currently awaiting trial, scheduled for October in federal court in Grand Rapids. One defendant, however, has asked U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker for a change of venue, citing media conduct and coverage had “corrupted the potential trial atmosphere.”
Trask’s arrest further complicates the case against the alleged conspirators and is the second potential roadblock to emerge in the past few months.
In March, prosecutors indicted an informant who was revealed to have helped the FBI infiltrate the plot, according to sources.
Wisconsin resident Stephen Robeson was indicted after he had long been cooperating with federal investigators, a development that may indicate the relationship between Robeson and the FBI is fractured and prosecutors do not plan on using him in their case, according to legal experts.
However, this may provide an opening for defense attorneys to call him as a witness and go after his credibility.
Last January, Trask testified in federal court against Barry Croft, a Delaware resident and member of the alleged plot who was identified as the group’s bomb maker. He also identified Croft as the national leader of the “Three Percenters,” a small militia group that was one of the participants in the Jan. 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol.
Trask testified about multiple undercover recordings that captured Croft as well as other conspirators. At that time, prosecutors wanted Croft held without bond, alleging he was a “violent extremist.”
Meanwhile, defense attorneys have claimed that their clients were basically all talk and were simply exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech, however never carried out any type of kidnapping plot.
“Croft was saying he was granted permission from God to commit murder, correct?” Assistant U.S. Attorney Nils Kessler asked Trask.
“Correct,” Trask said.
Based on his involvement in the case, he is expected to play a significant role in the October trial. However given Trask’s arrest, his credibility is an area which the defense would be expected to attack aggressively.
“In an investigation like this, you’re always trying to ensure you have more than one person who can testify about that piece of evidence,” Arena said. “So if something happens, you’ve got that backup.”
The other lead investigator has also had his veracity questioned by defense attorneys.
FBI Special Agent Henrik Impola has been accused attempting to sabotage the defense teams.
Attorney Joshua Blanchard, representing Croft revealed the existence of a recording where Impola talked about creating “disarray and chaos” for defense lawyers, whom he referred to as “paid liars.”

Last year, we reported on the plot to kidnap Whitmer. For more on that, we invite you to:
DIG DEEPER
The following contains editorial content by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI- Last week, the mainstream media breathlessly reported that “right wing extremists” had launched an effort to kidnap the far-left governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.
Of course Whitmer seized on those reports, blaming President Donald Trump’s “extremist rhetoric” for inflaming people to the point where they were going to take Whitmer hostage. However, details have emerged which may derail the narrative.
The Detroit Free Press reported on a bail hearing that took place on Tuesday and buried deep inside the story is what could be considered an important piece of information, and which may actually show that the “right wing militia” was in fact led to hatch the plot at the behest of one of the FBI informants.
According to defense attorney Scott Graham, he said that it was in fact informants and undercover agents who “pushed” the others to engage in illegal activity.
“One of the most active leaders was your informant,” Graham said.
The defense attorneys contended in their arguments to release the defendants on bail that there had been no probable cause to arrest and charge the suspects, saying that they had no “operational plans to do anything,” and that they had in fact been “engaged in legal activities—including talking in encrypted group chats and practicing military exercises with lawfully owned guns,” according to Graham.
Graham said that the FBI informant who wore wires to the militia meetings acted in more than just the capacity of an undercover observer. The question became were these militia members victims of an entrapment scheme by the FBI? Certainly that is the narrative that Graham is trying to pursue. Was the FBI trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack as something of a false flag maneuver, and if so, why?
Clearly, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility after all we have discovered about the FBI’s complicity since 2016 in trying to take down the Trump administration. FBI Director Christopher Wray recently tried to downplay the violent, left-wing group Antifa, while trying to bolster the existence of right wing extremism.
An overwhelming majority of FBI agents are good and honorable people. The same cannot be said about their leadership, with former FBI Director James Comey and former Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe being outed as being intimately tied to the plot to undermine President Trump.
Is it too much to think that perhaps there is more to this “plot” to kidnap Whitmer than meets the eye? Probably not.
We have seen that the so-called “deep state,” the inner cabal of Washington insiders is not above trying to affect a presidential election. The whole “Russia hoax” fiasco was perpetrated in large part by Comey and willing accomplices in the FBI, such as Peter Strzok and Lisa Paige. Was the FBI trying to manufacture an “October surprise” to influence the upcoming election? Who knows? Possible? Yes.
Still, given what we now know about the FBI and more recently the CIA, it is possible.
When the plot to allegedly kidnap Whitmer went public, the usual suspects in the mainstream DNC media jumped on the opportunity to tie it into President Trump, blaming his so-called “anti-lockdown” and “pro-militia” rhetoric for the plot, even though leaders of the group were by and large anti-Trump.
In speaking to the “plot” in Michigan, Graham offered the argument that there wasn’t in fact a plot to kidnap Whitmer, but it was more along the lines of “military wannabes” who engaged in “big talk.”
“Have you ever dealt with big talkers?” Graham asked an FBI agent during cross examination. “There’s kind of a military-wanna-be theme that runs between the militias.”
Graham was questioning FBI special agent Richard Trask about testimony that claimed a minimum of 13 so-called militia members had plotted to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation home and either leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan or take her to Wisconsin where she would be tried for treason.

Under examination, Trask was asked how the members of the militia had planned on getting Whitmer to Wisconsin. The agent couldn’t answer the question, and could only say that there were allegedly audio recordings of the suspects saying that they were planning on taking Whitmer to another state, including Wisconsin.
Again, the agent was asked by Graham what the suspects were going to do with Whitmer after leaving her in the lake, only saying that the alleged ringleader of the group, Adam Fox had said they were going to “take her out on a boat and leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan.”
Graham represents Kaleb Franks, 26, who ended up having his bail denied on Tuesday after the judge was convinced he was a danger to society. Two other suspects, Daniel Harris, 23 and Brandon Caserta, 32, were also refused bond.
The remaining bond hearings have been scheduled for Friday, this time for Fox and Ty Garbin, 24.
The five defendants appeared in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, where the case involving Whitmer was disclosed. In addition, the group had also talked about kidnapping Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, he of the blackface college pictures, as well as one of the suspects—a decorated Marine—allegedly asked his co-conspirators if they wanted to kill a Maine police officer for one of his friends.
 Meantime, the defense lawyers claimed that the government has only produced small samples of conversations in the case, and said that the government has no evidence that the accused had any real plan to kidnap Whitmer.
The five men were setup in a scheme to purchase explosives and tactical gear from someone, however when they arrived FBI agents were there instead.
One of the defense attorneys, Gary Springstead, who is representing Garbin said that there is still much more evidence to be presented.
“I haven’t had a full opportunity to review all the evidence,” Springstead said. “I think my co-counsel made good pints that (the evidence presented today) is a snapshot. A lot of quick points in a big time frame. You don’t know what else is happening outside of that time frame.”
“So I’m sure in our investigation (which) we’re going to conduct ourselves, and not rely solely on the federal government to tell us what happened, we’ll try to round out that information and figure out what happened in the times that weren’t captured on tape that weren’t captured in text to put it into fuller context so we can better assess where we stand in the case.”
Springstead also spoke to using an informant in this case is troublesome, especially given the role they played.
“It’s become an issue in certain cases where the informant pushes some of the information, and the court and the government and the defense attorneys have to be leery of that,” he told reporters.
“Because their job is not to assess what the government informant wants them to do, it’s to assess the accused’s intent and what they actually planned on doing.”
Ironically, the Washington Examiner reported that Daniel Harris, 23, one of the so-called “white supremacists” who was involved with the plot, had attended a Black Lives Matter rally in June, telling the Oakland County Times that he was upset about the death of George Floyd and police violence, as reported in the Washington Post.  
Harris told the Oakland County Times: “We went to the BLM protest yesterday in Lake Orion to show our support that everyone’s voice should be heard, no matter the color on your skin. Protesting is important to me because it gives us all a voice to be heard.”
Sounds like a white supremacist to us.

Judicial Watch Files Civil Rights Lawsuit for High School Teacher Fired for Facebook Posts Criticizing Chicago Riots, Looting, and Violence in the Aftermath of George Floyd Killing

Judicial Watch Files Civil Rights Lawsuit for High School Teacher Fired for Facebook Posts Criticizing Chicago Riots, Looting, and Violence in the Aftermath of George Floyd Killing

July 20, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Palatine, Illinois tenured high school teacher Jeanne Hedgepeth, who was fired by the suburban-Chicago school district where she had worked for 20 years after posting comments on Facebook criticizing the riots, violence, and shootings in Chicago in the aftermath of the May 25, 2020, killing of George Floyd. Hedgepeth made the posts on her personal Facebook page while vacationing after the end of the school year, just as some of the most severe violence was occurring. In her posts, Hedgepeth recommended studying Thomas Sowell, whom she described as a “treasure” and a “truth seeker,” and praised political commentator and activist Candice Owens and talk show host Larry Elder. She alleges that the firing violated her First Amendment rights.
The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, seeks damages from the school district, Township High School District 211, and district board members and officials who participated directly in the firing (Hedgepeth v. Britton et al. (Case No. 1:21-cv-03890)).
The lawsuit explains: 
In late May and early June 2020, Hedgepeth was vacationing in Florida after the end of the 2019-20 school year when violent street protests, rioting, looting, and shootings erupted in Chicago and many other U.S. cities in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 by Minneapolis police officers. In Chicago alone, 82 persons were shot, 19 fatally, over the May 30-31, 2020 weekend. On May 31, 2020, which the Chicago Sun Times described as the most violent day Chicago had seen in 60 years, Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked Governor J.B. Pritzker to deploy the Illinois National Guard in the city.  
That same day, May 31, 2020, Hedgepeth posted the following photos of herself on the beach in Florida along with the comment, “I don’t want to go home tomorrow. Now that the civil war has begun I want to move.”
An individual responded, “Follow your gut! Move!!!!!!!!!”  Hedgepeth answered, “I need a gun and training.” The individual replied, “me too!”
Another individual posted a meme that same day suggesting that the riots could be stopped with a septic tank truck and a pressure cannon. Hedgepeth reposted the meme, obviously in jest, adding, “You think this would work?”
On or about June 1, 2020, Hedgepeth posted the following comment on Facebook in the course of an exchange of posts begun the previous day with a third individual:
I am about facts, truth seeking and love. I will speak on any topic I choose because I live in a free country. I find the term “white privilege” as racist as the “N” word. You have not walked in my shoes either so do not make assumptions about me and my so called privilege. You think America is racist? Then you have been hoodwinked by the white liberal establishment and race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  Travel the world and go see that every nation has racism and some more than others but few make efforts such as we do to mitigate or eliminate it. I have lived and seen. The people I am informed by about the black experience in America are actually some of the smartest people in America.  And it so happens they are black. I highly recommend studying Thomas Sowell, who is now retired and in his 80’s. A treasure. A truth seeker. [D]oes REAL research and analysis. Candice Owens is one of the smartest and most courageous women in America and Larry Elders speaks the truth with a great sense of humor and FACTS not feelings. They are who I listen to when it comes to facts about the black experience in America.  Don’t you think there is a deeper problem than racism when 50% of murders in America are committed by 13% of the population? Do you think there might be a subtle genocide of black babies when most planned parenthoods are put in poor neighborhoods and that 30% of abortions are black babies. [B]lack women only make up 7% of the U.S. population. The greatest power you have is what you believe about yourself. [W]hat have Democrats, mainstream media and intellectuals in ivory towers been telling the black community to believe about themselves for forty years? Wake up and stop believing them, then things will change.
All of Hedgepeth’s posts were on her personal Facebook page. None of Hedgepeth’s posts identified her as a teacher or a District 211 employee, nor did Hedgepeth post them in her capacity as a teacher or a District 211 employee. None of the persons with whom Hedgepeth exchanged Facebook posts were current District 211 or Palatine High School teachers, staff, or students.
Upon returning from her vacation in early June 2020, Hedgepeth learned that the school district was investigating her for her Facebook posts. She was fired by the school board six weeks later, on July 16, 2020, by a vote of 5-2. In her defense, Hedgepeth noted that the posts were on her personal Facebook page and were made “out of school.” She also expressly invoked her First Amendment rights.
“The school district took what could have been a teachable moment about respecting diversity of viewpoints and turned it into a clear civil rights violation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Jeanne Hedgepeth had every right to express herself freely and openly on her personal Facebook page, outside of school, about matters of undeniable public concern. Firing her for opposing lawlessness, speaking out about gun rights, praising black conservatives, and criticizing Democrats and tenets of Critical Racial Theory violated the First Amendment, and the school district and district officials who did so will be held accountable.”
Judicial Watch is being assisted by attorney Christine Svenson of Palatine, Illinois.

Woman Fined for “F— Biden” and “Joe Biden Sucks” Signs in Her Yard Refuses to Remove Them

Woman Fined for “F— Biden” and “Joe Biden Sucks” Signs in Her Yard Refuses to Remove Them

A New jersey woman who is facing fines every single day for having profane signs in her yard opposing pro-abortion Joe Biden says she will not take them down, citng her First Amendment rights.
Patricia Dilascio has displayed the anti-Biden signs for some time but faced a hearng recently in local court and Roselle Park Municipal Court Judge Gary Bundy ordered Dilascio to remove the signs within a week or be forced to pay a $250 a day fine. Dilascio is fighting the order, saying she has the right to free speech on her own property.
She has 20 days to appeal the decision about the signs, which also say “Socialism Sucks, Biden Blows,” and “Don’t Blame Me I Voted For Trump.”
Here’s more:

Bundy said his decision had nothing to do with politics.
“It is a case, pure and simple, about language,” Bundy said, according to NJ.com. “This ordinance does not restrict political speech. Neither this town or its laws may abridge or eliminate Ms. Dilascio’s freedom of speech.
Her attorney, Michael Campagna, argued the move by saying the judge was akin to “censorship.”
SUPPORT LIFENEWS! To help us stand against Joe Biden’s abortion agenda, please help LifeNews.com with a donation!
“I am a firm believer in the First Amendment,” Campagna said. “I may not believe in what you’re saying, but I absolutely believe that you have the right to say it. That’s what our democracy is about. If you tell people that they cannot say something, that they cannot print something, that they cannot put a sign up, we’re going into censorship.
“In Nazi Germany, when Hitler didn’t like something, they burned the books, and then they burned the people. I don’t think we want that to happen in Roselle Park.”
Campagna argued that standards for obscenity have changed over the years, and that using the F-word no longer has a sexual connotation in society and simply is a colloquialism.

Millions of Americans are already opposed to Biden in part because of the radical pro-abortion record has has compiled in a short time.
After just 100 days in office, he already surpassed President Barack Obama as the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history.
Recently, his administration stopped enforcing safety regulations that protect mothers and unborn babies from dangerous abortion drugs. Now abortion drugs are being sold by mail without a woman ever having to see a doctor in person.
Biden’s 2021 budget plan also would expand abortions by eliminating the Hyde Amendment for the first time in more than 40 years. Without the amendment, Americans would be forced to directly fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions through Medicaid and other federal programs. The amendment is credited with saving about 2.4 million unborn babies from abortion.

Louisville, Kentucky Measure Stopping People From Praying Outside Abortion Clinics Won’t Take Effect

Louisville, Kentucky Measure Stopping People From Praying Outside Abortion Clinics Won’t Take Effect

Pro-life sidewalk counselors won another victory last week in their effort to save unborn babies from abortion outside the EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville, the largest abortion facility in Kentucky.
In May, the Louisville Metro Council narrowly approved a buffer zone that would restrict pro-lifers’ life-saving efforts around the abortion facility. However, the city agreed to delay enforcing the ordinance again last week after pro-life advocates sued the city, Kentucky Today reports.
“Kentucky Right to Life and all of our pro-woman, pro-life advocates are pleased that our pursuit of litigation has resulted in the city permitting sidewalk counseling ministry to continue by extending the temporary emergency injunction as we await Judge Jennings’ decision on the matter,” said Addia Wuchner, executive director of Kentucky Right to Life, one of the organizations challenging the ordinance.
The city initially agreed not to enforce the ordinance until July 16 after Kentucky Right to Life and Sisters for Life filed their lawsuit. On July 15, however, the city agreed to delay enforcement again until the court rules, according to the report.
Follow LifeNews.com on Instagram for pro-life pictures and videos.
In their lawsuit, the pro-life leaders accuse the city of a “not-so-clever gerrymander to restrict an entire city block from being accessed” by pro-life advocates, WDRB News reports. They said the ordinance “is an insidious content and viewpoint-based speech gerrymander, designed to squelch dissenting speech, and the practice of sincerely held religious beliefs, in the vicinity of EMW.”
Though the ordinance technically applies to all health care facilities in the city, it specifically mentions the EMW abortion facility; and it was apparent from abortion activists’ and some council members’ statements that restricting pro-life advocacy is the goal.
The ordinance prohibits protesters from coming within 10 feet of the abortion facility. It orders the city Public Works to mark the zone with lines on the sidewalk outside the EMW Women’s Surgical Center, which aborts approximately 3,000 unborn babies annually. Anyone who violates the ordinance may be punished with fines up to $500.
Sisters for Life and Kentucky Right to Life emphasized in the lawsuit that their outreach is peaceful and compassionate.
“Sidewalk ministry is not loud, obnoxious or confrontational,” the lawsuit states. Pro-life sidewalk advocates approach women offering information and support, a “much more effective means of dissuading women from having abortions than confrontational methods such as shouting, brandishing signs, blocking access, loud speakers, or other methods which, in Plaintiffs’ view, tend only to alienate their intended audience.”
Abortion activists have been pressuring the Louisville Metro Council to pass a buffer zone for years, but pro-life advocates expressed hope that the ordinance will be ruled unconstitutional.
“I feel it’s unconstitutional,” Wuchner told the Catholic News Agency. “You’re in effect giving a private business the right to that sidewalk, which is a public entity paid for by taxpayers.”
Pro-life sidewalk counselors do save lives. In 2020, Sidewalk Advocates for Life celebrated helping 10,000 mothers choose life for their unborn babies in its six years of ministry. They encourage mothers to give their babies a chance at life and connect them with community resources, including pregnancy resource centers, that provide financial and material help.

[VIDEO] – Sean Hannity has a message for you about COVID

[VIDEO] – Sean Hannity has a message for you about COVID

Last night Sean Hannity devoted a little air time to give his viewers a warning about COVID and to tell them to take it seriously:

SEAN HANNITY: “Please take Covid seriously. I can’t say it enough. Enough people have died. We don’t need any more death. Research like crazy. Talk to your doctor… I believe in science. I believe in the science of vaccination.” pic.twitter.com/tOi5ebpqSf
— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) July 20, 2021

 Hannity responded to the clip last night after it was put on Twitter, saying this isn’t new as some people are suggesting:

I have been saying this repeatedly on radio and TV exactly the same way for some time. Like I supported masks early on. What I won’t do is tell people what to do as I am NOT a Dr and I believe this decision must be made based on science, research, medical history…. https://t.co/BjNwlrq1wf

Some are suggesting the Fox News legal department had something to do with this, but that’s mostly people on the left. I don’t watch Hannity enough to know if this is truly something new on his show or not, but if he says he’s been saying it, then I believe him.
Here’s a little response from Twitter:

Why are multiple Fox hosts suddenly devoting entire segments today begging people to take the vaccine?
You’d think the Murdochs just acquired Pfizer. https://t.co/wWGcVYX8QA

And speaking of “wrecking” things, Harry just unleashed his most disrespectful blow yet to his grandmother the Queen – and his entire family, for that matter.

He’s now writing a “tell-all” book about his “Megixt” experience – worth a cool $20 million – and not only does he say he doesn’t need the Queen’s permission, but he didn’t even bother to tell anyone it was happening.
Nice, move, Harry…

What a jerk.
Daily Mail reported that Prince Harry didn’t feel he needed permission from Buckingham Palace to write his $20million Megxit memoir, his spokesman declared today.

The decision to write a tell-all autobiography has been branded a ‘moneymaking exercise at the expense of his blood family’ by royal experts and insiders who predicted it would be ‘a book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’

Capitol ‘Rioter’ Sentenced To 8 Months, Not Accused Of Assaulting Anyone Or Damaging Property

Capitol ‘Rioter’ Sentenced To 8 Months, Not Accused Of Assaulting Anyone Or Damaging Property

A Florida man who was let into the US Capitol on January 6th was sentenced to eight months in prison  – the first such sentence for a felony case in the Capitol ‘riot.’The man, Paul Allard Hodgkins, was not charged with property destruction or assault – yet “contributed to the collective threat to democracy,” according to prosecutors, who sought 18 months.

.URL377657 {font: normal 10pt arial, helvetica; color: #404040; display: none} Hodgkins apologized and said he was ashamed of his actions, describing how he was caught up in the euphoria as he followed a crowd of hundreds into the Capitol.“If I had any idea that the protest … would escalate (the way) it did … I would never have ventured farther than the sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue,” he told the judge, adding “This was a foolish decision on my part,” according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, hundreds of Antifa and BLM rioters, looters and vandals have had their charges dropped across the country.In pronouncing the sentence, Judge Randolph Moss said that Hodgkins had played a role, if not as significant as others, in one of the worst episodes in American history. Still he chose to give Hodgkins a year less in prison.“That was not, by any stretch of the imagination, a protest,” Moss said. “It was … an assault on democracy.” He added: “It left a stain that will remain on us … on the country for years to come.”The sentencing could set the bar for punishments of hundreds of other defendants as they decide whether to accept plea deals or go to trial. Hodgkins and others are accused of serious crimes but were not indicted, as some others were, for roles in larger conspiracies.Under an agreement with prosecutors, he pleaded guilty last month to one count of obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop lesser charges, including entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct. -APAccording to Assistant US Attorney Mona Sedky, while Hodgkins didn’t engage in violence, he walked among many who did in “the ransacking of the People’s House.”- READ MOREListen to the insightful Thomas Paine Podcast Below —

HHS Redacts Fauci Email on Funding Recommendation and Hides WHO Information in Judicial Watch/Daily Caller Lawsuit For COVID-19/China/WHO Communications

HHS Redacts Fauci Email on Funding Recommendation and Hides WHO Information in Judicial Watch/Daily Caller Lawsuit For COVID-19/China/WHO Communications

July 20, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it and the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) received from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) 311 pages of records of heavily redacted communications from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding COVID-19.
Certain Fauci emails were redacted, including his personal edits to a COVID-related federal appropriations measure. Emails sent from the WHO were also redacted under a trade secrets exemption.
In a letter with the documents, HHS Freedom of Information Act Officer Gorka Garcia-Malene notes that:
[FOIA] Exemption 4 protects from disclosure trade secrets and commercial or financial information that is privileged and confidential. Exemption 5 [under which the Fauci email is redacted] permits the withholding of internal government records which are predecisional and contain staff advice, opinion, and recommendations.
The records were obtained in response to a May 2020 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by Judicial Watch on behalf of the DCNF (Daily Caller News Foundation v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:20-cv-01149)). The lawsuit was filed after HHS failed to respond to the DCNF’s April 1, 2020, FOIA request asking for:
Communications between Dr. Fauci and Deputy Director Lane and World Health Organization officials concerning the novel coronavirus.
Communications of Dr. Fauci and Deputy Director Lane concerning WHO, WHO official Bruce Aylward, WHO Director General Tedros Anhanom, and China.
“The American people have every right to know key information on our government’s role in COVID,” said Neil Patel, Daily Caller News Foundation publisher. “This sort of hiding, dodging and stonewalling is one reason why trust in national authorities is near all-time lows.”
“Fauci’s agency is in stonewall mode – and has granted the corrupted WHO a special secrecy exemption from FOIA,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

As you likely know by now, CNN’s ratings are in the toilet and have been flushed 100 times over, so it appears that they’re desperately trying to “whip” something up and recapture the frenzy from 2016 and beyond, by once again devoting as much time as humanly possible to President Trump.
After all, as Burr points out, nobody cares about Joe Biden, who is just some boring old senile fool who eats ice cream and naps all day.

Burr believes that CNN is now trying like hell to get Trump re-elected so they can get some ratings back.

Black Rifle Coffee Calls Its Customers ‘Racist’ After Being Funded by Liberal ‘Venture Capitalist’, Says Pro-Trump Covfefe Coffee

Black Rifle Coffee Calls Its Customers ‘Racist’ After Being Funded by Liberal ‘Venture Capitalist’, Says Pro-Trump Covfefe Coffee

Black Rifle Coffee has been slammed by conservatives for calling their customers racist, with pro-Trump coffee brand Covfefe Coffee highlighting their funding by a liberal venture capitalist firm.
Black Rifle Coffee, a supposedly pro-America, pro-military coffee firm, came under fire last year for distancing themselves from Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager currently charged relating to the shooting of two antifa rioters in Kenosha. Despite the company losing an estimated 3,000 to 6,000 customers, Evan Hafer and Mat Best, the CEO and Executive VP of Black Rifle Coffee respectively, were interviewed for a ~10,000 word piece for the New York Times last week, where they turned their back even further on many of their consumers.

Hafer, who admitted that he stopped believing the myriad claims of election fraud in the 2020 election after then-Attorney General Bill Barr dismissed them in December, despite the recent Arizona audit revealing a vast number of serious issues, said that despite building his entire brand on being pro-Trump, he is now “a man without a party.” The New York Times noted that he was “reluctant to say much positive” about President Trump.
Both best and Hafer railed in the interview about customers who claimed they were “racist,” including the multi-racial Proud Boys organisaion, swearing repeatedly, and describing America First supporters as being “repugnant”:
“You can’t let sections of your customers hijack your brand and say, ‘This is who you are,’” Best told me. “It’s like, no, no, we define that.” The Rittenhouse episode may have cost the company thousands of customers, but, Hafer believed, it also allowed Black Rifle to draw a line in the sand. “It’s such a repugnant group of people,” Hafer said. “It’s like the worst of American society, and I got to flush the toilet of some of those people that kind of hijacked portions of the brand.”

“The racism [expletive] really pisses me off,” Hafer said. “I hate racist, Proud Boy-ish people. Like, I’ll pay them to leave my customer base. I would gladly chop all of those people out of my [expletive] customer database and pay them to get the [expletive] out.”

It looks like Black Rifle Coffee, a company which became famous because of conservatives, is now trying to distance themselves from conservatives.

I never tried their products before and it looks like I never will.

— Brigitte Gabriel (@ACTBrigitte) July 17, 2021

Hafer even confirmed that a new coffee bag design, featuring a “Renaissance-style rendering of St. Michael the Archangel, a patron saint of military personnel, shooting a short-barreled rifle,” would now never “see the light of day,” with Hafer having apparently been told by “a friend at the Pentagon” that supposed “white supremacists” were adopting the design “because it was reminiscent of the murder of George Floyd.”

Black Rifle Coffee takes a knee in a far ranging NYT interview, where they claim St Michael is a white supremacist symbol according to “a friend in the Pentagon,” and that those who believes Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self defense are racists to be “flushed down the toilet.” pic.twitter.com/IoGE3dOcHc

Black Rifle Coffee prefers St. Milley the Wokeangel
— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) July 17, 2021

National File’s Editor in Chief Tom Pappert spoke to the CEO of Covfefe Coffee, an actual pro-Trump, America First competitor to Black Rifle Coffee, and discussed the article with him.
“They must believe if they’re willing to go to the New York Times, the enemy of the people, and throw their customer base under the bus, they must truly believe that the future is not America First,” Covfefe‘s CEO said. “They saw an onslaught of thousands and thousands of customers reach out to them in disgust about the way they treated Kyle Rittenhouse. They’re already embracing this mass exodus and they’re trying everything that they can do to try and boot more MAGA people out the door in an effort to… bring in as many Democrats or centrists or Jeb Bush-type people. I don’t understand it at all.”Covfefe’s CEO highlighted one potential reason for Black Rifle Coffee’s conversion into “the official coffee of the woke military-industrial complex” from the pro-Trump, pro-America coffee they had started off as. In December 2017, Sterling Partners, a liberal venture capitalist firm that has donated millions of dollars to Democrats, invested in Black Rifle Coffee.
“Is this the owner’s decision, or is this really the powers that be running these things, and making them apologise for their previous statements, making them distance themselves,” Covfefe Coffee’s CEO said. “It kind of seems like it’s all coordinated… They are doubling down on reimagining their company, they’re reworking their entire brand. They’re trying to be more inclusive.”
“When you have that type of power and responsibility and you’re marketing yourself as fighting the culture war, it’s just really pathetic and pretty cowardly,” he concluded.

20 States Fight in Court for South Carolina Law Banning Abortions on Babies With Beating Hearts

20 States Fight in Court for South Carolina Law Banning Abortions on Babies With Beating Hearts

South Carolina has the backing of 20 states in its effort to protect unborn babies with beating hearts from abortion.
On Tuesday, the states, led by Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, filed an amicus brief to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals defending the South Carolina Fetal Heartbeat and Protection from Abortion Act, according to an announcement from Marshall’s office.
The pro-life law, which passed earlier this year, prohibits abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, typically about six weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions are allowed in cases of rape, incest or risks to the mother’s life. Abortionists who violate the law could face a $10,000 fine or imprisonment for up to two years.

The new law also requires abortion facilities to give the mother an opportunity have an ultrasound and view the image of her unborn baby, hear her baby’s heartbeat and receive additional information about her baby’s development.
Planned Parenthood and the Greenville Women’s Clinic filed a lawsuit immediately after the law passed, and federal Judge Mary Geiger Lewis blocked it in March.
In their brief this week, the 20 state attorneys general said Lewis overstepped her bounds by blocking the entire law in an “error-filled” opinion.
“South Carolina’s fetal heartbeat law was struck down in an error-filled district court opinion,” Marshall said on behalf of the states. “Although Planned Parenthood and the other plaintiffs challenged only the law’s regulation of abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, the district court enjoined the law in its entirety—including portions of the law that dozens of other states already have and regularly enforce.”
For example, Marshall said at least 24 states require abortion facilities to offer the mother the chance to see the ultrasound image of her unborn baby and 16 require that they give her the opportunity to hear her unborn baby’s heartbeat.
“Yet the district court enjoined South Carolina’s ultrasound disclosure law,” Marshall said.
In their brief, he and the 19 other state attorneys general said the ruling “aggrandizes the judicial power by treating the court’s injunction of the challenged provision as erasing it entirely so the whole Act collapses,” according to the Associated Press.
The other states supporting South Carolina are Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.
Last week, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster asked the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse Lewis’s ruling blocking the law.
“As I’ve said before, the right to life is the most precious of rights and the most fragile,” McMaster said in a statement. “We must never let it be taken for granted or taken away. And we must protect life at every opportunity, regardless of cost or inconvenience.”
If enforced, the legislation has the potential to save thousands of babies’ lives. According to state health data, more than 5,100 abortions were reported in 2019 in South Carolina.
Polls suggest 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. Gallup polls consistently find that a majority of Americans think all or most abortions should be illegal.
About a dozen states have passed heartbeat laws in recent years. However, none of the laws are being enforced because of pro-abortion lawsuits and current U.S. Supreme Court precedent.
In 1973, the Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion under Roe v. Wade, and instead forced states to legalize abortion on demand. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.

REPORT: Raffensperger Exposed For Allegedly Staging Fake Election Audit In November, Documents Show

REPORT: Raffensperger Exposed For Allegedly Staging Fake Election Audit In November, Documents Show

An explosive report by the Gateway Pundit has revealed that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger appears to have staged a fake election audit in November, as revealed in documents received through a FOIA request by Kevin Moncla.
Prior to the full forensic audit of Maricopa County in Arizona launched by the Arizona Senate that has revealed enough evidence of voter fraud to change the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election, it was revealed by the Gateway Pundit in January that the firms initially selected by Maricopa County in Arizona to perform previous audits of the 2020 election “were not certified when they were selected by the county as had been claimed.” According to another report, one of the firms selected by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors known as Pro V&V, was “also used by corrupt Brad Raffensperger in Georgia in performing an audit there in November 2020 after the early November election.”

“Raffensperger used a firm to audit the Dominion voting machines before and after the 2020 election.  But Raffensperger withheld information on the audit firm and actually lied about its certifications.”

Raffensperger championed the results of the Pro V&V audit, suggesting that it confirmed the results of the election. “Pro V&V found no evidence of the machines being tampered,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “We are glad but not surprised that the audit of the state’s voting machines was an unqualified success.” However, according to a new report by Kevin Moncla, the “actual audit report by Pro V&V could not be found anywhere.  After an exhaustive search, and in disbelief that the audit report had gone unpublished, we submitted a FOIA request to the state of Georgia for records of the audit.”
When the FOIA request came back, three documents were attached to the email sent by Pro V&V owner Jack Cobb. The first document is presumed to be a memo from Pro V&V “outlining the details of the work as requested by the Secretary of State.” The second document appeared to be an email from Raffensperger’s office approving the work detailed in the Pro V&V memo. The third document served as “the resulting Pro V&V audit report,” however, Moncla noticed that the date of the document was July 16, 2021.
The revelation that the document was created by Pro V&V owner Jack Cobb just last Friday “leaves little possibility for any plausible explanation other than the Georgia Secretary of State’s office contacted Pro V&V who created the memo to provide in response to our FOIA request,” according to the Gateway Pundit report.
“Not only was the audit performed by an uncertified vendor at the time, but the report also states that both four and six counties were selected for review in their audit.  The firm looked at no ballots.
To think that Pro V&V looked at only a few machines and no ballots to make their decision is shameful.”

This comes as the election integrity nonprofit organization Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA) released a statement claiming that evidence shows that the rate of election discrepancies may be even higher in other Georgia counties besides Fulton. VoterGA showcased a trove of evidence indicating that the error reporting rate in Fulton County was a staggering 60%, as National File reported. 
“VoterGA announced today it has evidence election result discrepancies in other Georgia counties may be worse than those it presented for Fulton County at a VoterGA press conference Tuesday,” the press release stated. “The revelation came as VoterGA formalized its call for a truly independent, forensic audit of all county results for the November 3rd, 2020 and January 5th, 2021 elections.”
The voter fraud revelations making way into public view in Georgia have attributed to growing calls for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to resign from office over their mishandling of evidence of voter fraud during the 2020 election. Republican candidate for Georgia Governor Vernon Jones exposed Raffensperger for lying to Georgia voters and the mainstream media about the integrity of the 2020 election, as National File reported.

SharpieGate Is Real: Maricopa County Conspired To Give Voters Sharpies That Ruined Same-Day Ballots

SharpieGate Is Real: Maricopa County Conspired To Give Voters Sharpies That Ruined Same-Day Ballots

President Donald Trump supporters and American patriots nationwide are emboldened after an Arizona state Senate hearing on the Maricopa County election audit proved massive fraud. Among the audit’s findings so far: 11,326 people in the county who voted in the November 3 election were NOT on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the voter rolls by December 4. This number is higher than Joe Biden’s supposed statewide “lead” in Arizona of 10,457 votes. Additionally, more than 74,000 mail-in ballots were counted in the county even though there is no recorded evidence of the ballots being sent to the “voters” in the first place — and Maricopa County withheld all photographic evidence of the mail-in ballot envelopes from the Republican audit team (meanwhile, photographs show ballot printers and boxes getting loaded onto a “Destruction” truck in Phoenix during the Senate hearing). Thin ballot paper used for approximately 168,000 ballots led to markers “bleeding through” the paper, damaging ballots, after a Maricopa County official ordered staff to hand out Sharpie markers to same-day voters even though she knew about concerns with the Sharpies.
Another round of subpoenas is expected, as state senators call for the Republican-controlled Arizona legislature to decertify the election and “recall” Joe Biden’s electors in the state. Activists on the ground are fighting to get a warrant from necessary Arizona senators to compel Maricopa County to hand over more evidence.

SharpieGate: “We are seeing a lot of very thin paper stock being used especially on Election Day,” said Doug Logan, Cyber Ninjas CEO, noting that approximately 168,000 on-site ballots printed at polling places used this thin paper, which resulted in a “bleed-through” ink effect that damaged ballots. Evidence shows that a Maricopa County government official ordered her underlings to hand out Sharpie markers to Election Day voters (mostly Trump voters showed up to vote on Election Day) despite “issues and concerns” with the markers.

BUSTED: This internal email from Maricopa County, AZ talks about “Issues and Concerns” with markers but says they have to give voters markers anyway instead of ballpoint pens on Election Day

HUGE! pic.twitter.com/im2NMkC7gC

— Patrick Howley (@HowleyReporter) November 18, 2020

NATIONAL FILE REPORTED IN NOVEMBER 2020: “An election day video shot in Arizona has drawn scrutiny nationwide after voters in the hotly contested state reported being issued Sharpie permanent markers to fill out their ballots, as opposed to the standard ballpoint pen, raising concerns that ballots filled out with the markers will not be properly counted. Filmed outside a polling location in Maricopa County, a woman on screen can be heard telling a man recording footage of the incident that poll workers were handing out Sharpies to voters, triggering vote-counting machines to reject ballots. Despite the issues, poll workers seemed to have barred the use of pens, maintaining that ballots must be filled out with Sharpies despite having pens on hand and barring voters from using their own or each other’s pens to vote.
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” the woman said.

“They had a bowl of pens behind them that they were not giving to people and only giving Sharpies out,” she says as another woman appears to corroborate her story.

What’s more, is the woman in the video says that after posting an account of her troubles voting to a local Facebook chat, more voters described a similar experience, all seeming to revolve around a region surrounding the Town of Gilbert, a heavily Republican area.
“I posted it on my Facebook group chat in my neighborhood, they said they did it at the Queen Creek Library, they did it at ASU Polytech earlier, that like four different polling places were doing Sharpies all in – like between Queen Creek and the edge of Gilbert.”
When the woman began alerting other voters at the polling location to the issue with the Sharpie markers, “there was a guy that directly came out and yelled at me. Three times.”

“They called the sheriffs[…]and told us to stop handing out the ballpoint pens,” the man recording responds. “In which case, those [ballots being filled out with ballpoint pens] are the only ones being counted and validated.”
“And so we know that and we’ve been telling them you need to use a ballpoint pen, not the sharpie, and now those are getting invalidated. So people are coming here to vote for Donald Trump and those votes are all getting invalidated. There we go…Welcome to the new America, people. That’s what’s going on!”…Arizona State Senator-elect Kelly Townsend, currently a State House Representative, confirms, after speaking to the Maricopa County Recorder’s office staff, that the reports of voters in Republican-leaning areas being given sharpies by poll workers that allegedly resulted in ballots being rendered unusable are now officially under investigation, and urges Maricopa County residents to aid in the effort.”

NATIONAL FILE REPORTED ON NOVEMBER 6: “A video has been uncovered released by Arizona officials last month that instructs voters not to use sharpies when casting their ballots.

Republican voters in Arizona during the election reported that they were forced to use Sharpies instead of ballpoint pens, something that is alleged would result in the ballots being thrown out, with the controversy being labelled “SharpieGate” as a result. National File reported on a viral video from a female voter on her experiences at the voting booth:
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” the woman said.

Now a video has emerged from the official YouTube channel of Pima County, Arizona, with officials telling voters that they should not use sharpies or any permanent markers when casting their ballot. “Use a black or blue ballpoint pen, no sharpies, to fill in the ovals next to your candidates name,” the official in the video says.

Republican voters on election day in Maricopa County in Arizona reported that they were forced to use Sharpies, rather than ballpoint pens, and were concerned that there would be bleedthroughs, and therefore invalidate the ballots. The hashtag “SharpieGate” went viral, with Arizona voters posting their concerns all over social media.
“There were two people in front of me that used the Sharpie that was given to them by the poll workers, it did not read their ballot, and they slide it in there twice. I used a pen. I took their Sharpie and threw it away and it read my ballot,” one woman said at the time.
During Monday’s hearing in Arizona on election integrity, Colonel Phil Waldron, an expert witness, confirmed the scandal’s existence when discussing the topic with former New York mayor and head of the Trump legal team, Rudy Giuliani.
“Tell us about the green button in Maricopa County on the machine,” Giuliani asked Waldron. “There is one witness that is going to testify that all day she saw election officials constantly pressing the green button when somebody was voting.”
“I believe this was also linked to another witness that’s going to talk about the differences between the pens and the sharpies,” Waldron replied. “The Maricopa elections division in early voting they specified to only use ballpoint pens for voting, and then on election day they specified only use sharpies.”
National File confirmed this story, with Maricopa County Elections Assistant Director Kelly Dixon identifying issues with ballots being cast using Sharpie markers but still insisting that voters who cast their ballot on November 3 must do so using sharpies.”

Republicans hoping to get President Donald Trump back in office can look to left-wingers for advice. That’s right. After the 2016 election, liberals tried to overturn Trump’s victory and laid out numerous strategies for doing so, as we will explain below. Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers stated: “I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right.” Arizona state senator Sonny Borelli stated: “I’ve seen enough evidence to challenge the validity of the certification of the Maricopa County Election results.” Arizona state senator Kelly Townsend stated that “I want to see indictments.” Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach, referring to the massive voter fraud revelations in his own state of Georgia, said, “We can ask for our 16 Electoral College votes back, and park them here. And just say, we don’t want those as part of the vote.” Beach explained, “Decertify our 16 electoral votes. Park them here. Bring them back, and park them in Georgia. And then if Arizona did that, if a couple other states did that, and it got below 270, then the Twelfth Amendment would kick in, and Congress would have to act.” So would Republicans put Decertificaton of the 2020 election on the ballot for the 2022 midterms, or can Wendy Rogers’ strategy prove effective and can we get a re-vote of the entire election? Arguments can certainly be made for an Election “Re-Do.”
As Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan revealed some of his evidence at an Arizona Senate hearing, ballot printers and boxes were being moved in Phoenix onto a truck providing “Destruction” services. The establishment appears to be panicking. Maricopa County officials have confirmed that they are getting rid of the election equipment that was inspected in the audit.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan said at a hearing before Arizona state senators Thursday that his election audit found more than 74,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Maricopa County with no record of them being sent to the voters, and that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped down to zero during the counting process. Logan is demanding the full library of mail-in ballot images from Maricopa County, which the county has not provided to him. Biden’s official lead in Arizona stands at only 10,457 votes.
“We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” Doug Logan said. “And so we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them.”

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased. “We’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail-in ballots were received, that so many of them were received that the standard was reduced over time. They originally talked about, there was originally 20 points of comparison on the signature and then after some time they were told to go to ten points of comparison, then five. And then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through,” Doug Logan stated, noting that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence. Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recommended re-subpoenaing those images.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who served as the Republican state Senate’s liaison to the Maricopa County audit, confirmed that “thousands” of ballots that were set aside to be duplicated had no serial number on them or a very “light” unreadable serial number, making them impossible to properly count during the 2020 election.
“There was almost one whole pallet that were called original/damaged ballots sent to duplication…if a ballot gets damaged and has to be sent to duplication,” Bennett explained. “We found I would have to say thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them” which “has created great difficulty in trying to match up.”
Bennett said that “thousands” of ballots in the duplicate pile had serial numbers “put on by a dot matrix printer, very very light” and there was “none whatsoever on many” ballots. When asked how you would know if ballots are duplicated or not with no serial number, Ken Bennett confirmed that you would NOT know. The stunning revelation provides more substance to President Donald Trump’s assertion that the 2020 election was illegitimate.

Tech contractor Ben Cotton, a witness in the Arizona Senate hearing Thursday on the Arizona election audit, confirmed that the Maricopa County election system was “compromised” during the 2020 election. “An element of the election system was actually compromised or breached during the course of the November 2020 election…The registration server that was public facing did have unauthorized access to that. In cybersecurity terms, it was breached…The county issued a letter” regarding the problem, stated tech expert Cotton.

In March, there were more than 37,000 anonymous administrative queries to access the 2020 election system in Maricopa County that defied “normal Windows behavior,” according to cyber expert Ben Cotton, a witness at the Arizona state Senate hearing Thursday on the election audit.
“The Windows logs will actually record the user name that is requesting that action” in addition to the IP address and the host name of the client making the request, said tech expert Ben Cotton. “What we are seeing here…is we’re seeing anonymous logins at the system level that do not follow that pattern of normal Windows behavior.” Cotton said that he needs to obtain data to figure out what the activity is.

President Donald Trump stated: “Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent.” There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls after the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?) Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE. The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.”
“Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate Patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?” stated Republican President Trump, who served honorably in the Oval Office from 2017 until his ouster by the Deep State in January 2021.
The Left Tried To Overturn The 2016 Election After Trump Won, Demanding A Revote And Petitioning Attorneys General
The left-wing VoicesofMillionsCoalition drafted a Change.org petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to force a “Revote of the 2016 Elections (Primary and General).” The group’s petition stated: “The people of Austria and Ukraine prompted their Supreme Court to overturn their elections following widespread election hacking. We must do the same. Jerroll M. Sanders—legal strategist for a far-reaching citizen revote effort—looked at U.S. law through a new lens and drafted a writ of mandamus that amounts to a solid challenge to the 2016 elections. Citizens across the nation walked into courts and filed the documents drafted by Sanders to safeguard our right to vote. One of the writs filed jointly by three citizen petitioners now sits before the U.S. Supreme Court. The writ asks the Court to declare the 2016 elections (primary and general) unconstitutional because the U.S. Government failed to protect States’ against cyber invasions during the 2016 elections as required by Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.  www.revote.org.”
On November 21, 2017, VoicesofMillionsCoalition posted that “Revote Coalition Launches Promising Strategy to Obtain Revote of 2016 Federal Elections” and stated, “Revote Coalition (www.revote.info) has sent requests to several State Attorneys General (AGs) asking them to file a Supreme Court (SCOTUS) case seeking a revote of the 2016 federal elections. AGs are considering the group’s request.” Of course, in the 2020 election, the Coalition encouraged its anti-Trump supporters to vote with paper ballots.
State Supreme Courts have ordered re-votes of contested elections
This time four years ago, in July 2017, the liberal website FiveThirtyEight ran an article headlined “What Happens If The Election Was A Fraud? The Constitution Doesn’t Say?,” which delved into the strategies Democrats could try to use to overturn the election if “Russian interference” was found to have helped Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. Needless to say, liberals were very much open to the idea of overturning the election results using legislative process. FiveThirtyEight even linked to some examples of cases that could be used to support a re-do of the 2016 presidential election, the way the 1974 Senate election in New Hampshire sparked a re-vote the following year.
In July 2002, the Chicago Tribune ran a headline entitled “Supreme Court doesn’t bar revote in primary” in which staff reporter Christi Parsons reported: “Clearing the way for a new election to correct a faulty Illinois House primary, the state Supreme Court on Friday declined to step in and avert plans to hold the unprecedented revote this fall. As a result, election officials are on course to hold a do-over election Sept. 10 for the West Side Chicago and west suburb House seat. In the initial election, some ballots were not counted, some were lost before an official recount and others were mistakenly cast by voters who didn’t live in the district. A Cook County judge last month ordered a new primary election in the race between Democrats Dorothy Reid and Deborah Graham. On Friday, justices declined to take up a direct appeal of that ruling, leaving an appeals court to hear complaints from Reid. She had been declared the winner after a coin flip to break a tie between her and Graham, opening the door to a court challenge soon after the March primary.”
In 2004, WTHR 13 in Indianapolis reported on the Indiana Supreme Court ordering a new East Chicago mayoral election as a result of fraud. WTHR reported: “The Indiana Supreme Court says supporters of long-time East Chicago Mayor Robert Pastrick bought absentee votes to get him re-elected last year. The state’s highest court Friday ordered a new election because of pervasive corruption in the Democratic primary in which Pastrick defeated George Pabey by 123 votes.”
The Supreme Court of Connecticut in 2006 upheld a lower court’s ruling that an election must be re-done for Middletown city council. The Supreme Court of Connecticut wrote in its decision on Bauer vs. Souto: “This appeal concerns a contested municipal election for the common council of the city of Middletown (council) that was held on November 8, 2005…Following the filing of simultaneous briefs and oral argument before this court, we announced the decision of this court from the bench on December 21, 2005, affirming the trial court’s judgment ordering a new election to be held on January 24, 2006, but reversing the judgment as to the scope of that election. Specifically, we ordered the new election to be citywide, and not limited to district eleven, the district in which the contest arose, as ordered by the trial court…The defendants’ suggestion, made at oral argument in this court, that the new election be limited to those voters who actually voted in the first election in district eleven, is patently unreasonable. There is nothing in our law or in our democratic traditions to suggest that, if a voter does not vote in an election, he or she waives his right to do so when the results of that election prove unreliable and a court orders a new election.”
Back when liberals thought they could overturn the 2016 election, FiveThirtyEight reported (emphasis added): “Others (legal scholars) suggest that there is legal precedent for a presidential re-vote if there were flaws in the process. One instance in which this question arose was the “butterfly ballot” from the 2000 election, which may have caused some voters to choose Pat Buchanan when they meant to vote for Al Gore in Palm Beach County, Florida…At least one federal court has suggested that the courts could order a new election. In 1976, a District Court in New York heard a case alleging voter fraud in several urban locations. The court’s opinion maintained that federal courts had a role to play in ensuring free and fair presidential elections, arguing: “It is difficult to imagine a more damaging blow to public confidence in the electoral process than the election of a President whose margin of victory was provided by fraudulent registration or voting, ballot-stuffing or other illegal means.” This assertion challenged the idea that presidential elections occupy a special category beyond such court remedies.” (FiveThirtyEight passage ends)

Kelly C from Arizona said on Twitter that “they were snatching people’s ball point pens away very aggressively, but the liberal cities like Tucson there was a sign that no sharpies allowed, definitely done on purpose” and “they didn’t just hand them out forcefully (they) took people’s ball point pen and said we can’t use them.”

True and they didn’t just hand them out they forcefully took peoples ball point pen and said we can’t use them

BREAKING: VoterGA Says Evidence Indicates Multiple Georgia Counties May Have Even More Election Fraud Than Fulton

BREAKING: VoterGA Says Evidence Indicates Multiple Georgia Counties May Have Even More Election Fraud Than Fulton

Election integrity nonprofit organization Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA) released a statement on Monday claiming that evidence shows the rate of election discrepancies may be even higher in Georgia counties other than Fulton. VoterGA showcased a trove of evidence indicating that the error reporting rate in Fulton County was a staggering 60%.
“VoterGA announced today it has evidence election result discrepancies in other Georgia counties may be worse than those it presented for Fulton County at a VoterGA press conference Tuesday,” the press release stated. “The revelation came as VoterGA formalized its call for a truly independent, forensic audit of all county results for the November 3rd, 2020 and January 5th, 2021 elections.”

The press release continued, “According to VoterGA, a full statewide audit of November, 2020 and January, 2021 election results should validate voter eligibility. It must also include forensic authenticity, security assessments, and accuracy verification” involving “Physical ballots,” “Scanner/Tabulators,” and “Election server images.” The statement also notes that “VoterGA further insisted that any such Georgia audit must be conducted by a truly independent team that has no relationship with any Georgia officials who conducted the elections.”
As National File reported last week, VoterGA found massive evidence of election irregularities in Fulton County:
VoterGA states that its “team’s analysis revealed that 923 of 1539 mail–in ballot batch files contained votes incorrectly reported in Fulton’s official November 3rd 2020 results.” The error reporting rates for the 1,500-odd ballots in question is a staggering 60%. Joe Biden was declared the winner of Georgia by the razor-thin margin of 12,670 votes in 2020.
The VoterGA statement notes, “The team  found at least 36 batches of mail–in ballots with 4,255 total extra votes were redundantly added into Fulton Co. audit results for the November election. These illicit votes include 3,390 extra votes for Joe Biden, 865 extra votes for Donald Trump and 43 extra votes for Jo Jorgenson.” Additionally, the VoterGA team reportedly found 7 falsified audit tally sheets, which showed ballot images showing results of “554 votes for Joe  Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump and 11 votes for Jo Jorgenson” falsified to record “850 votes for Biden, 0 votes for Trump and 0 votes for Jorgenson” on tally sheets.
“Fulton Co. failed to include over 100,000 tally sheets, including more than 50,000 from mail–in ballots, when the results were originally published for the full hand count audit conducted by the  office of the Secretary of State for the November 3rd 2020 election,” the statement noted.
Experts have stated that the amount of fraudulent votes cast in the Georgia election could potentially exceed Democrat President Joe Biden’s 12,670 vote margin of victory in the state.

Judicial Watch to Court: Gender Quota Requirement for Corporate Boards is Gender Discrimination

Judicial Watch to Court: Gender Quota Requirement for Corporate Boards is Gender Discrimination

July 19, 2021

Judicial Watch

Diversity for Diversity’s Sake is Never Constitutional’
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a motion for summary judgment asking aCalifornia court to rule that the State’s quota for women on corporate boards is unconstitutional and to permanently enjoin any expenditure of taxpayer funds on the quota.
The filings come in the case Robin Crest et al. v. Alex Padilla (No.19STCV27561)).
Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on August 6, 2019, on behalf of three California taxpayers. The 2018 law, known as Senate Bill 826, requires every publicly held corporation headquartered in California to have at least one director “who self-identifies her gender as a woman” on its board of directors by December 31, 2019. The law requires corporations have up to three such persons on their boards by December 31, 2021, depending on the size of the board. The taxpayers challenging the provision claim that the quota violates the Equal Protection clause of the California Constitution.
In July 2020, the court cleared the way for the case to proceed, holding that Judicial Watch’s clients had standing under state law to sue.
In its filing, Judicial Watch argues:
There can be no doubt that SB 826 employs a suspect classification – gender – to differentiate between similarly situated persons – current and prospective members of corporate boards. The Legislature has decided that there are not enough women on corporate boards for its liking, so it has enacted SB 826, which requires that corporations have a minimum number of women on their boards. SB 826 treats current and prospective board members not as individuals, but as members of two groups based on their gender. Women may compete for every position on a corporation’s board, yet men are excluded from competing for those positions reserved for women. No matter how strong a male candidate’s qualifications might be, he is never afforded the opportunity to compete with female candidates for every board position available, but instead must compete only for those board positions for which there is no gender preference. In this regard, SB 826 creates the same type of quota system for seats on corporate boards that was found to be unconstitutional for seats in the medical school class at issue in Regents of the Univ. of Cal. v. Bakke (1978) 438 U.S. 265, 319-20 (“Bakke”).
Countering the State’s claim that the quota is necessary to “boost the California economy,” “improve opportunities for women in the workplace,” and “protect California taxpayers, shareholders, and retirees,” Judicial Watch argues: 
The requirement of necessity is also absent.  Does California really need to impose a gender-based quota on corporate boards to improve its economy? To improve opportunities for women in the workplace?  To protect taxpayers, shareholders, and retirees or improve corporate sustainability or preserve public confidence? Are the tools available to the Legislature really so weak or so limited that it must resort to gender discrimination to achieve these goals?  To state such a claim is to refute it. Nothing in SB 826’s legislative findings or legislative history demonstrate that the Legislature had to resort to a gender-based quota system out of necessity to achieve its goals.  
Judicial Watch also argues:
Diversity for diversity’s sake is never constitutional. “‘Preferring members of any one group for no reason other than race or ethnic origin is discrimination for its own sake. This the Constitution forbids.’” (Connerly, 92 Cal. App. 4th at 34 (quoting Bakke, 438 U.S. at 307.)) ….
Defendant’s “diversity for diversity’s sake” argument will not save SB 826’s blatantly unconstitutional quota. And of course, asserting that more women on corporate boards will add diversity merely perpetuates gender-based stereotypes about both men and women.
Judicial Watch also demonstrated that the State could provide no evidence of specific, past discrimination by the corporations subject to the law in selecting board members:
The Legislature made no effort to identify specific past or present victims of alleged discrimination or to identify specific perpetrators of such discrimination. No specific victims or perpetrators were identified in SB 826’s legislative findings, and Defendant was unable to identify any such victims or perpetrators in response to interrogatories seeking this specific information…. In response to an interrogatory asking Defendant to identify specific victims of discrimination, Defendant responded generically, identifying “women,” “corporations,” “California taxpayers and retirees,” and “shareholders and investors” as well as “the economy.” … Because SB 826 is not actually remedial and does not restore victims of alleged discrimination to the position they would have occupied absent the discrimination, and because no effort has been made to limit SB 826’s “remedy” to such victims, SB 826 cannot withstand strict scrutiny. Indeed, the blunt instrument of a quota is unlikely to ever satisfy this standard.
In signing SB 826 in September 2018, then-Governor Brown wrote that “serious legal concerns have been raised” to the legislation. “I don’t minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation.” He signed the bill anyway, noting, “Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C. – and beyond – make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message.”
There are currently 625 publicly traded corporations headquartered in California that are subject to the quota. In a March 2020 report, California’s Secretary of State identified 282 corporations that reported compliance with the quota.
“Not a single dime of California’s taxpayer’s money should be going to support a law that requires sex discrimination,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The ‘Women on Corporate Boards’ statute is not only unconstitutional, but morally wrong.  Judicial Watch’s California taxpayer clients are asking the courts to uphold California’s Constitution which prohibits sex discrimination.”
In September 2020, Judicial Watch also filed a related taxpayer lawsuit to prevent California from enforcing Assembly Bill 979, which requires the same corporation subject to the gender-based quota also satisfy racial, ethnic, sexual preference and transgender status quotas by the end of the 2021 calendar year
In January 2021, Judicial Watch filed a public comment with the Securities and Exchange Commission in response to a proposed rule change requiring race and gender quotas on the boards of corporations listed on the Nasdaq exchange.

VOTERGA: GA Audit Would Reveal Other Counties Worse Than Fulton

VOTERGA: GA Audit Would Reveal Other Counties Worse Than Fulton

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

GA election integrity non-profit VoterGA.org released a statement today they were in control of information that could show audits in other GA counties would reveal election fraud in the 2020 general election cycle worse than has been discovered in Fulton County to date.

The press release is below:

ATLANTA GA – VoterGA announced today it has evidence election resultdiscrepancies in other Georgia counties may be worse than those it presentedfor Fulton County at a VoterGA press conference Tuesday. The revelation came asVoterGA formalized its call for a truly independent, forensic audit of all countyresults for the November 3rd, 2020 and January 5th, 2021 elections. VoterGA firstannounced support for a statewide audit at a July 5th Woodstock Festival and Parade.

On Tuesday, VoterGA explained how a review of newly released public documentsled them to amend the Fulton complaint to add counts for these audit discrepancies:

• A 60% error rate in the 1500+ batch totals for the reported audit results

• Seven falsified tally sheets containing 850 votes for Joe Biden but 0 forDonald Trump and Jo Jorgenson

• Over 4,000 ballots that were duplicated in reporting of the audit results

• Three days of missing drop box chain of custody forms for over 5,000 ballots

• Missing tally sheets for over 50,000 ballots that were not uploaded untilmonths after the audit results were initially published

According to VoterGA, a full statewide audit of November, 2020 and January, 2021 election results should validate voter eligibility. It must also include forensicauthenticity, security assessments, and accuracy verification involving:

• Physical ballots

• Scanner/Tabulators

• Election server image

VoterGA further insisted that any such Georgia audit must be conducted by a trulyindependent team that has no relationship with any Georgia officials whoconducted the elections. VoterGA flatly rejected the suggestion by House SpeakerDavid Ralston to engage the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) stating the GBI:

• Has little or no experience in forensic elections investigations

• Was already engaged with the Secretary of State in voter investigations

• Produces dubious findings in investigations involving government officials

Another complaint involving the November and January elections, Daugherty v.Raffensperger, is expected to have its first hearing today. [Exhibits]

Arizona Audit Finds Enough Tainted Ballots To Erase Biden’s Lead As Senators Call To Decertify Election

Arizona Audit Finds Enough Tainted Ballots To Erase Biden’s Lead As Senators Call To Decertify Election

President Donald Trump supporters and American patriots nationwide are emboldened after an Arizona state Senate hearing on the Maricopa County election audit proved massive fraud. Among the audit’s findings so far: 11,326 people in the county who voted in the November 3 election were NOT on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the voter rolls by December 4. This number is higher than Joe Biden’s supposed statewide “lead” in Arizona of 10,457 votes. Additionally, more than 74,000 mail-in ballots were counted in the county even though there is no recorded evidence of the ballots being sent to the “voters” in the first place — and Maricopa County withheld all photographic evidence of the mail-in ballot envelopes from the Republican audit team (meanwhile, photographs show ballot printers and boxes getting loaded onto a “Destruction” truck in Phoenix during the Senate hearing). Thin ballot paper used for approximately 168,000 ballots led to markers “bleeding through” the paper, damaging ballots, after a Maricopa County official ordered staff to hand out Sharpie markers to same-day voters even though she knew about concerns with the Sharpies. Another round of subpoenas is expected, as state senators call for the Republican-controlled Arizona legislature to decertify the election and “recall” Joe Biden’s electors in the state. Activists on the ground are fighting to get a warrant from necessary Arizona senators to compel Maricopa County to hand over more evidence.
Republicans hoping to get President Donald Trump back in office can look to left-wingers for advice. That’s right. After the 2016 election, liberals tried to overturn Trump’s victory and laid out numerous strategies for doing so, as we will explain below. Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers stated: “I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right.” Arizona state senator Sonny Borelli stated: “I’ve seen enough evidence to challenge the validity of the certification of the Maricopa County Election results.” Arizona state senator Kelly Townsend stated that “I want to see indictments.” Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach, referring to the massive voter fraud revelations in his own state of Georgia, said, “We can ask for our 16 Electoral College votes back, and park them here. And just say, we don’t want those as part of the vote.” Beach explained, “Decertify our 16 electoral votes. Park them here. Bring them back, and park them in Georgia. And then if Arizona did that, if a couple other states did that, and it got below 270, then the Twelfth Amendment would kick in, and Congress would have to act.” So would Republicans put Decertificaton of the 2020 election on the ballot for the 2022 midterms, or can Wendy Rogers’ strategy prove effective and can we get a re-vote of the entire election? Arguments can certainly be made for an Election “Re-Do.”

As Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan revealed some of his evidence at an Arizona Senate hearing, ballot printers and boxes were being moved in Phoenix onto a truck providing “Destruction” services. The establishment appears to be panicking. Maricopa County officials have confirmed that they are getting rid of the election equipment that was inspected in the audit.

SharpieGate: “We are seeing a lot of very thin paper stock being used especially on Election Day,”said Doug Logan, Cyber Ninjas CEO, noting that approximately 168,000 on-site ballots printed at polling places used this thin paper, which resulted in a “bleed-through” ink effect that damaged ballots. Evidence shows that a Maricopa County government official ordered her underlings to hand out Sharpie markers to Election Day voters (mostly Trump voters showed up to vote on Election Day) despite “issues and concerns” with the markers.

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan said at a hearing before Arizona state senators Thursday that his election audit found more than 74,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Maricopa County with no record of them being sent to the voters, and that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped down to zero during the counting process. Logan is demanding the full library of mail-in ballot images from Maricopa County, which the county has not provided to him. Biden’s official lead in Arizona stands at only 10,457 votes.
“We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” Doug Logan said. “And so we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them.”

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased. “We’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail-in ballots were received, that so many of them were received that the standard was reduced over time. They originally talked about, there was originally 20 points of comparison on the signature and then after some time they were told to go to ten points of comparison, then five. And then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through,” Doug Logan stated, noting that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence. Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recommended re-subpoenaing those images.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who served as the Republican state Senate’s liaison to the Maricopa County audit, confirmed that “thousands” of ballots that were set aside to be duplicated had no serial number on them or a very “light” unreadable serial number, making them impossible to properly count during the 2020 election.
“There was almost one whole pallet that were called original/damaged ballots sent to duplication…if a ballot gets damaged and has to be sent to duplication,” Bennett explained. “We found I would have to say thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them” which “has created great difficulty in trying to match up.”
Bennett said that “thousands” of ballots in the duplicate pile had serial numbers “put on by a dot matrix printer, very very light” and there was “none whatsoever on many” ballots. When asked how you would know if ballots are duplicated or not with no serial number, Ken Bennett confirmed that you would NOT know. The stunning revelation provides more substance to President Donald Trump’s assertion that the 2020 election was illegitimate.

Tech contractor Ben Cotton, a witness in the Arizona Senate hearing Thursday on the Arizona election audit, confirmed that the Maricopa County election system was “compromised” during the 2020 election. “An element of the election system was actually compromised or breached during the course of the November 2020 election…The registration server that was public facing did have unauthorized access to that. In cybersecurity terms, it was breached…The county issued a letter” regarding the problem, stated tech expert Cotton.

In March, there were more than 37,000 anonymous administrative queries to access the 2020 election system in Maricopa County that defied “normal Windows behavior,” according to cyber expert Ben Cotton, a witness at the Arizona state Senate hearing Thursday on the election audit.
“The Windows logs will actually record the user name that is requesting that action” in addition to the IP address and the host name of the client making the request, said tech expert Ben Cotton. “What we are seeing here…is we’re seeing anonymous logins at the system level that do not follow that pattern of normal Windows behavior.” Cotton said that he needs to obtain data to figure out what the activity is.

President Donald Trump stated: “Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent.” There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls after the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?) Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE. The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.”
“Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate Patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?” stated Republican President Trump, who served honorably in the Oval Office from 2017 until his ouster by the Deep State in January 2021.
The Left Tried To Overturn The 2016 Election After Trump Won, Demanding A Revote And Petitioning Attorneys General
The left-wing VoicesofMillionsCoalition drafted a Change.org petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to force a “Revote of the 2016 Elections (Primary and General).” The group’s petition stated: “The people of Austria and Ukraine prompted their Supreme Court to overturn their elections following widespread election hacking. We must do the same. Jerroll M. Sanders—legal strategist for a far-reaching citizen revote effort—looked at U.S. law through a new lens and drafted a writ of mandamus that amounts to a solid challenge to the 2016 elections. Citizens across the nation walked into courts and filed the documents drafted by Sanders to safeguard our right to vote. One of the writs filed jointly by three citizen petitioners now sits before the U.S. Supreme Court. The writ asks the Court to declare the 2016 elections (primary and general) unconstitutional because the U.S. Government failed to protect States’ against cyber invasions during the 2016 elections as required by Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.  www.revote.org.”
On November 21, 2017, VoicesofMillionsCoalition posted that “Revote Coalition Launches Promising Strategy to Obtain Revote of 2016 Federal Elections” and stated, “Revote Coalition (www.revote.info) has sent requests to several State Attorneys General (AGs) asking them to file a Supreme Court (SCOTUS) case seeking a revote of the 2016 federal elections. AGs are considering the group’s request.” Of course, in the 2020 election, the Coalition encouraged its anti-Trump supporters to vote with paper ballots.
State Supreme Courts have ordered re-votes of contested elections
This time four years ago, in July 2017, the liberal website FiveThirtyEight ran an article headlined “What Happens If The Election Was A Fraud? The Constitution Doesn’t Say?,” which delved into the strategies Democrats could try to use to overturn the election if “Russian interference” was found to have helped Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. Needless to say, liberals were very much open to the idea of overturning the election results using legislative process. FiveThirtyEight even linked to some examples of cases that could be used to support a re-do of the 2016 presidential election, the way the 1974 Senate election in New Hampshire sparked a re-vote the following year.
In July 2002, the Chicago Tribune ran a headline entitled “Supreme Court doesn’t bar revote in primary” in which staff reporter Christi Parsons reported: “Clearing the way for a new election to correct a faulty Illinois House primary, the state Supreme Court on Friday declined to step in and avert plans to hold the unprecedented revote this fall. As a result, election officials are on course to hold a do-over election Sept. 10 for the West Side Chicago and west suburb House seat. In the initial election, some ballots were not counted, some were lost before an official recount and others were mistakenly cast by voters who didn’t live in the district. A Cook County judge last month ordered a new primary election in the race between Democrats Dorothy Reid and Deborah Graham. On Friday, justices declined to take up a direct appeal of that ruling, leaving an appeals court to hear complaints from Reid. She had been declared the winner after a coin flip to break a tie between her and Graham, opening the door to a court challenge soon after the March primary.”
In 2004, WTHR 13 in Indianapolis reported on the Indiana Supreme Court ordering a new East Chicago mayoral election as a result of fraud. WTHR reported: “The Indiana Supreme Court says supporters of long-time East Chicago Mayor Robert Pastrick bought absentee votes to get him re-elected last year. The state’s highest court Friday ordered a new election because of pervasive corruption in the Democratic primary in which Pastrick defeated George Pabey by 123 votes.”
The Supreme Court of Connecticut in 2006 upheld a lower court’s ruling that an election must be re-done for Middletown city council. The Supreme Court of Connecticut wrote in its decision on Bauer vs. Souto: “This appeal concerns a contested municipal election for the common council of the city of Middletown (council) that was held on November 8, 2005…Following the filing of simultaneous briefs and oral argument before this court, we announced the decision of this court from the bench on December 21, 2005, affirming the trial court’s judgment ordering a new election to be held on January 24, 2006, but reversing the judgment as to the scope of that election. Specifically, we ordered the new election to be citywide, and not limited to district eleven, the district in which the contest arose, as ordered by the trial court…The defendants’ suggestion, made at oral argument in this court, that the new election be limited to those voters who actually voted in the first election in district eleven, is patently unreasonable. There is nothing in our law or in our democratic traditions to suggest that, if a voter does not vote in an election, he or she waives his right to do so when the results of that election prove unreliable and a court orders a new election.”
Back when liberals thought they could overturn the 2016 election, FiveThirtyEight reported (emphasis added): “Others (legal scholars) suggest that there is legal precedent for a presidential re-vote if there were flaws in the process. One instance in which this question arose was the “butterfly ballot” from the 2000 election, which may have caused some voters to choose Pat Buchanan when they meant to vote for Al Gore in Palm Beach County, Florida…At least one federal court has suggested that the courts could order a new election. In 1976, a District Court in New York heard a case alleging voter fraud in several urban locations. The court’s opinion maintained that federal courts had a role to play in ensuring free and fair presidential elections, arguing: “It is difficult to imagine a more damaging blow to public confidence in the electoral process than the election of a President whose margin of victory was provided by fraudulent registration or voting, ballot-stuffing or other illegal means.” This assertion challenged the idea that presidential elections occupy a special category beyond such court remedies.” (FiveThirtyEight passage ends)

Police Killed Ashli Babbitt Too

Police Killed Ashli Babbitt Too

Here’s a tale of two cops and two murders: Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, and John Doe and Ashli Babbitt. Two cops, two unarmed citizens killed. One you care about, one you don’t. Even murder is politicized these days.No one needs much of a recap on Chauvin and Floyd. George Floyd, a black man, tried to pass off a counterfeit $20 bill while messed up on drugs. White Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and other cops responded, and in the process of restraining Floyd, killed him. Everyone has seen the video of Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck, and, as if it was a requirement, been coaxed to judge for themselves whether it was appropriate, necessary, and the cause of Floyd’s death.A jury judged those things, too, and the result was a 22.5 year sentence for Chauvin (in handing down the sentence the judge said it was justified in part because Chauvin “committed his crime in the presence of children,” who of course had gathered to help jeer at the cops.) The woman who shot the snuff video got a special citation from the Pulitzer prize board.Floyd’s death set off an angry summer of violence under the rubric Black Lives Matter, as progressives shut down opposing voices and several downtowns to insist Chauvin’s actions were part of systemic racism reaching back to 1619 in unbroken lineage. Celebrities, politicians, and academics jostled each other for camera time to demand the police be defunded. You might have seen something about all this on the teevee?There’s also video of white Ashli Babbitt being killed by a black law enforcement officer, but it has been played by the mainstream media maybe 1/10,000th as often as the Floyd murder clip. Babbitt, wearing a Trump flag like a cape, was one of the rioters who smashed the glass on the door leading to the Speaker’s Lobby of the Capitol. A plain clothes Capitol Police officer, apparently without warning, fired a shot and Babbitt fell into the crowd and died. It was the only shot fired in the riot. A SWAT team just behind Babbitt saw the situation differently and never fired on her or those with her.Like Floyd, Babbitt was unarmed. Like Floyd, Babbitt was committing a crime when she was killed by a cop. Unlike Floyd, there is no question of whether she was resisting arrest because the cop never got that far. He just shot her.In the Floyd case, we know everything about Derek Chauvin, and saw him convicted in open court. Not so with Babbitt’s killer. Almost all police departments nationwide are required to release an officer’s name after a fatal shooting. Not the U.S. Capitol Police, which answers only to Congress. Even as Congress demands nationwide police reforms (ironically, the new, lower standards of proof proposed by H.R.1280—George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021—would condemn the Capitol cop) they have steadfastly refused to release the name of Babbitt’s killer.In February, the Capitol Police stated they would “share additional information once an investigation is complete.” Investigators closed the case in April, cleared the still unnamed officer of wrongdoing in Babbitt’s death without addressing the fact that the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and left it at that. Stuff happens.No trial, no public accounting, not even a name for the Babbitt family to use in filing a wrongful death suit. Because Congress exempts the Capitol Police from the Freedom of Information Act, the family is forced to sue “for documents that identify the officer who shot Babbitt… as well as notes and summaries of what the officer said regarding the shooting and the reasons he discharged his weapon.”They’d like more information on Babbitt’s death than the “investigation” provided. The Department of Justice simply wrote there was “insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.” DOJ did not even bother to hide its legal fudge, which had its investigators look narrowly at a Constitutional question, not a homicide.Without shame, DOJ said it focused on 18 U.S.C. § 242, a federal criminal civil rights statute. This requires prosecutors prove the officer acted willfully to deprive Babbitt of her rights, here the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable seizure. Prosecutors would have to prove not only that the officer used constitutionally unreasonable force, but the officer did so “willfully” with the intent to deprive Babbitt of her Fourth Amendment rights. That meant evidence the officer acted out of fear, mistake, panic, misperception, negligence, or even poor judgment cannot establish the high level of intent required. In lay terms, that’s called a set-up en route to a cover-up.Contrast that with the Chauvin prosecution, where prosecutors laid out a spread of charges—manslaughter, second-degree murder, and third-degree murder—all in the one death of George Floyd, leaving the civil rights question that saved the Capitol cop as a separate matter. That allowed prosecutors to instruct the jury (there of course was no jury in Babbitt’s case) to decide on emotion, saying “Use your common sense. Believe your eyes. What you saw, you saw.” Imagine a jury in Babbitt’s case, over-exposed to a perpetually playing video of her killing, acting on the same instructions. But that never happened.No one had much to say during the Babbitt investigation. In Floyd’s case, Joe Biden said he was praying the jury would reach the “right verdict,” calling the evidence “overwhelming in my view.” Maxine Waters demanded protesters become “more confrontational” if Chauvin was acquitted. That was so blatantly inflammatory it was almost grounds for a mistrial, never mind an impeachment had she held higher officeThe president cheers on one prosecution, remaining silent while another murder is made to go away. Cities erect monuments to George Floyd as a martyr while the New York Times runs gossipy articles on Babbitt’s marriage problems. Asking for justice in Floyd’s case is a duty, even if it means burning down stores. Those who want the same justice for Babbitt are mocked as QAnon cultists. Did she not also bleed?Oh, there’s more. Floyd was only on drugs passing fake money because of racism whereas Babbitt was a seditionist, a vandal, who was asking for it. Floyd’s death created a movement for change. Trump’s embrace of Ashli Babbitt anointed “January 6 a heroic uprising” for white supremacists seeking to overthrow democracy.Absolutely no one would write of Floyd, as one mainstream media outlet did of Babbitt: “her death, while tragic, occurred for a very good reason. The Air Force veteran, who had been fully converted into the most dangerous and fantastical pro-Trump conspiracy theories, had joined the aggressive vanguard of the January 6 insurrection.” Babbitt deserved it. The article went on to compare Babbitt’s status as martyr to “Horst Wessel, a German storm trooper killed by communists in 1930, who inspired the eponymous Nazi anthem.”Others claim Donald Trump is liable for the death, that the answer to Who Killed Ashli Babbitt? is… Trump. The Washington Postwrote, “The death of Ashli Babbitt offers the purest distillation of Donald Trump’s view of justice,” which apparently means to them Trump supported George Floyd’s killing while mourning Babbitt’s. Daily Beast fretted, “If the base believes they are being prosecuted and even ‘assassinated’ [like Babbitt] they will justify anything to reject Democratic [sic] rule and future elections that deprive them of power.”Sears and Kmart pulled from sale T-shirts reading “Ashli Babbitt American Patriot” after an outcry on social media. Headlines read “Marjorie Taylor Greene provokes outrage by comparing Ashli Babbitt’s death to George Floyd’s” because Babbitt was okay to shoot “while actively participating in a violent riot” and Floyd was murdered by racists.It is difficult in the face of so much hypocrisy to find the air to comment on the state of our country. Some murders are more equal than others. Dead bodies only matter when they can be used for your side’s political purposes. Why are some cops murderers and others protected with anonymity and a free-pass investigation?The absolute craven transparency of the progressive argument is what gives hope. Hope that at some point enough Americans will set aside their blind Trump rage, look past the 24/7 propaganda directed at them, and come to realize even murder now only matters for the partisan clicks it generates. Our media is happy to justify Babbitt’s death, seeing it almost in biblical terms, divine retribution for supporting Trump. Floyd? Was always just a victim of an unjust society.Ashli Babbitt was put down for political sins, and her killer escaped justice with the government’s help. Now ain’t that the Democratic vision of America?Peter Van Buren is the author of We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People, Hooper’s War: A Novel of WWII Japan, and Ghosts of Tom Joad: A Story of the 99 Percent.

Biden also says that “misinformation” about the vaccine is “killing people” on Facebook.
I guess people read one “wrong” meme and just drop dead, right there on the spot?

Of course, Biden didn’t cite any “source” to back up his Facebook death claims, I’m guessing he got that bit of information from a place in his mind called “Dementia,” but who knows?

GA’s Vernon Jones Says Not So Fast On GBI Involvement – ‘Keep The Focus On Full Forensic Independent Audit’

GA’s Vernon Jones Says Not So Fast On GBI Involvement – ‘Keep The Focus On Full Forensic Independent Audit’

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

GA GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Vernon Jones responded to Speaker David Ralston’s call for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to investigate Fulton County for election fraud, by saying the focus needs to remain on a ‘full forensic independent audit’ of all of Georgia’s 159 counties.

This statement released from his campaign this morning is below:

—————–

Statement by Vernon Jones (R), Candidate for Governor of the State of Georgia

– July 18, 2021 –

I am glad to see that Georgia Speaker of the House David Ralston and others are finally calling for a GBI investigation into the fraud being uncovered in Fulton County. But, as I have been screaming from the rooftops for months, we need a forensic audit in all 159 counties in Georgia. This statewide audit should be the “people’s independent audit”, paid for with taxpayer dollars and conducted by an independent, non-partisan, expert organization like Cyber Ninjas, the company being utilized in Maricopa County. This should NOT done by the GBI. I went to Maricopa County to tour the on-going audit there, it was professional, detailed, efficient and thorough. Georgia voters are tired of this charade. Brian Kemp’s GBI was asked to help investigate the election in December of 2020 which resulted in nothing. Now, we are learning there is plenty of clear and irrefutable  evidence of fraud and errors in Fulton County, including mismarked tally sheets, missing tally sheets, missing chain of custody documents, and double counting of ballots.Let me repeat: WE NEED AN INDEPENDENT PEOPLE’S AUDIT! It is clear, Georgia politicians – including Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger are only now reacting to all of this because they are feeling the heat from Georgia voters to do something. Voters have run out of patience and these politicians are backed into a corner. Make no mistake, they will be playing politics to cover their own behinds. Do not let up until they call for a full, independent people’s audit of all 159 counties, and a criminal investigation of the fraud that audit will undoubtedly uncover.

The Cost of Election Fraud

The Cost of Election Fraud

While most people would reply to the question, “What is the cost of election fraud?” with a retort such as: “The lost of our republic,” “No faith in our elected leaders,” and “A move to a global cabal,” I was looking a little bit closer to home, in that what would it have cost to have actually stolen the 2020 Presidential Election in dollars and people. So, that is what I did.
Some time ago (right after the election), I was thinking about how many people would be needed to pull of the election fraud in the 5 large municipalities / counties that we are now all familiar with: Maricopa, AZ, Fulton, GA, Wayne, MI, Philadelphia, PA, and Milwaukee, WI. You know, you always have to follow the money, and someone was hiring people to do these things. I was also perfect because, well, no one was working so, sure some extra cash, no problem.
So shortly after the election was over and we saw these massive ballot drops and vote swings, I started to estimate how many people you would need to pull of this massive fraud. Based on estimates using my background of running manufacturing operations some time ago, I came up with a figure of needing 3,000 individuals and paying out (payouts are multiple levels, because of course you had to pay off the politicians and officials too) of $198 million in my first calculation. I am certain grifters like Stacey Abrams also has a spreadsheet very similar to this one below. I am sure the numbers mind be slightly off, but you get the idea.

In looking at the numbers above you have to think in terms of military organizations. On the top are Generals, Colonels and Majors and those that do the dirty work, Privates, Corporals and Sergeants. In between you have those who manage the grunts: Staff Sergeants, Sergeant Majors; and then those who manage the Sergeants: Lieutenants and Captains. Remember, you just needed 7 locations with this form of command and control to implement a fraud of this magnitude. 400+ individuals is more than enough to have accomplished this per location.
Then we come to find out that Mark Zuckerberg poured in $300 million into these five contested municipalities. So, taking my original calculations, and then doing a little reverse engineering, we come up with new estimates. With $300 million, you can now gainfully employ 4,088 to pull of this massive heist as illustrated below. Not saying that this did happen, but man, it seems really coincidental that all these individuals help make it happen. I remember seeing a video of a mob guy in Philadelphia saying he was paid $3 million to produce 300,000 ballots. The video of Skinny Joey Merlino telling someone that what he did and would testify if offered immunity and a new identity has been taken down, but here is the information link.

See, it is ALWAYS about the money and following it. We have already seen in Georgia how Ms. Abrams, through her company, was able to grift the Georgia governor. Why? Because the both new the previous election for Governor was tainted? Maybe. I am certain if you look at the majority of people pushing back against these audits, they definitely have their hands in the money jar and they are not clean. Just another data point of interest: look for the money. Where did $300 million go, and to whom?

Establishment-Backed GOP House Candidate Jen Kiggans Caught Plagiarizing Her Democrat Incumbent – Report

Establishment-Backed GOP House Candidate Jen Kiggans Caught Plagiarizing Her Democrat Incumbent – Report

An establishment-backed GOP candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 2nd District, Jen Kiggans, was reportedly caught plagiarizing Democrat incumbent Elaine Luria, who she hopes to face off against in the November 2022 mid-term election, lifting phrases from a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed written by Luria, and using them herself in a fundraising email sent to supporters.
According to the devastating report from The Daily Beast, Kiggans’ used the fundraising email to paint herself as the right choice to take on threats from an aggressive China, with the GOP primary race candidate sometimes parroting Luria’s just four-day-old op-ed “down to the very word.”

“Kiggans, a Virginia state senator, makes the same overall argument—many of them in strikingly similar language to Luria’s. She claims this stance sets her apart from elected Democrats who ‘don’t seem to share that perspective,’ while ignoring that Luria does, in fact, share that perspective. Sometimes down to the very word.”
In what the report calls the “most egregious example of potential plagiarism,” Kiggans reportedly used a phrase so uncommon, that when Google searched, it can only be traced back to Luria’s Wall Street Journal op-ed. When analyzed at Stanford University’s Literary Lab, a researcher found just a one in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance that both candidates would have used the term on their own.
“…in the most egregious example of potential plagiarism, where the op-ed says, ‘China has an extensive ground-based conventional missile force,’ the Kiggans fundraising email states, ‘they have built extensive ground-based conventional missile forces.’That phrase is not a military term of art or commonly used expression. A closed-quote Google search for ‘extensive ground-based conventional missile force’ only returned one hit: Luria’s op-ed.”
When reached for comment by National File, Kiggans’ 2022 Republican Primary race opponent, Jarome Bell blasted her, highlighting her ties to the Republican establishment and labeling her campaign a knock-off of both Democrat Luria and her GOP establishment-backed predecessor, ex-Congressman Scott Taylor.
“Nothing about Kiggans is original,” Bell told National File. “She says she’s using Scott Taylor’s playbook, she has the same PACS as the establishment RINOs, and now she’s even using Democrat talking points on China. Why would any constituent want to be represented by a person without their own mind?”
In 2020, despite being embroiled in an election fraud scandal that saw staffers from his 2018 campaign face criminal charges, Taylor again sought office and again lost to Luria. Along the way, he came out in support of mail-in balloting and, after National File’s reporting on the matter, later denied he had ever done so.

“Kiggans indicated that she planned to go after Luria with the same playbook used by Luria’s 2020 challenger, former Congressman Scott Taylor,” reported The Washington Post in announcing Kiggans’ run, with the Taylor playbook consisting of trying to out-centrist the competition as opposed to embracing the America First platform championed by President Donald Trump and supported by the conservative base of the Republican Party.

Fulton County, GA Chairman Robb Pitts Now Says ALL GA Counties Should Be Investigated, Not Just His

Fulton County, GA Chairman Robb Pitts Now Says ALL GA Counties Should Be Investigated, Not Just His

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

Last week GA House Speaker David Ralston called for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to look into election fraud in Fulton County, GA. We wrote about it here on The Georgia Record.

Ralston is the most powerful politician in Georgia, and the most feared.

Fulton County Chairman Robb Pitts, who has infamously denied any criminality at all in his jurisdiction, has now asked for all GA counties to be investigated.

We are not sure the GBI does has the resources to do such a thing.

In addition, we are very concerned about the GBI getting involved at all. Using state law enforcement will provide a vehicle to stop all other investigations and possibly cover up the crime altogether.

We also reported earlier that the GBI has been using ‘Happy Faces’ employees, whom we have shown via eye witness testimony to possibly be involved in criminal activity.

See the letter from Pitts below to the Speaker Ralston.

Meet Timothy Barr, Anti-Trump Candidate For Congress In Georgia Now Posing As America First

Meet Timothy Barr, Anti-Trump Candidate For Congress In Georgia Now Posing As America First

Timothy Barr, who recently announced his campaign for U.S. Congress in Georgia’s 10th district, has a long history of virtue signalling against 45th President Donald Trump, and more recently, was utterly silent during President Trump’s 2020 campaign and fight for election integrity.
In 2016, before President Trump was the Republican Party nominee and was loathed by the Republican Party establishment, Barr liked a tweet saying that “Trump acts like a dictator” when questioned. Around this time, Barr also liked a tweet from rabid anti-Trump David French, claiming that President Trump bullies women, lies habitually, and incites violence.

Barr also lobbied for his “good friend” Georgia Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan, a member of the Never-Trump wing of the Republican Party who was reported 11 Alive to be attempting to “wrest control of the GOP out of the hands of Donald Trump and his supporters, to ‘heal and rebuild’ the Republican Party in Georgia and across the country.” In addition to publicly supporting Duncan, Barr also donated $3,000 to Duncan’s campaign according to the FEC. At the same time, Barr never donated to either of President Trump’s campaigns.
More recently, while in his position as a Georgia State Representative, Barr refused to petition the executive branch of the state to stop what many consider to be clear election fraud during the 2020 election.

While Barr appears to be painting himself as a champion of the America First push for election integrity, he has already been subject to attack from at least one influential Georgia Republican. Debbie Dooley, The Tea Party Movement Co-Founder and President of the Atlanta Tea Party, recently wrote that “If GA-10 Congressional candidate Timothy Barr actually supported Trump, then he would not have refused to sign a petition calling for a special session in December that Trump requested. I know he was asked to sign it and refused. The petition was publicized.”

The letter he sent, at Jody Hice’s request, to VP Pence and others objecting to certification of GA electors was done in private. Perhaps Barr did it to get Hice’s support in case he ran for Congress. It was rumored for a while that Hice would not seek re-election.2 of 2
— Debbie Dooley (@Crimsontider) July 13, 2021

The petition Dooley refers to called for an immediate special session for the Georgia legislature, something anti-Trump Gov. Brian Kemp stonewalled, and would have allowed the legislature to consider the credible reports of widespread voter fraud in the state and potentially decertify the state’s electors that eventually went to Joe Biden. (READ MORE: VoterGA Finds Thousands Of Fraudulent Biden Votes In Georgia, Has Photo Evidence Of Falsified Tally Sheets)
“The letter he sent, at Jody Hice’s request, to VP Pence and others objecting to certification of [Georgia] electors was done in private,” noted Dooley. “Perhaps Barr did it to get Hice’s support in case he ran for Congress. It was rumored for a while that Hice would not seek re-election.”
Also among Barr’s critics is the Team Overhaul Twitter account, which describes itself as a “stan account” for Barr’s opponent, the current frontrunner Mike Collins. “Politician Timothy Barr is not for Trump — never has been. We have enough GOP traitors and fake MAGA in congress as it is. We don’t need any more closet Never Trumpers sabotaging the America First agenda,” the account wrote alongside a video about Barr.

Trump Issues Statement Regarding AZ Election Fraud

Trump Issues Statement Regarding AZ Election Fraud

Former President Donald Trump has issued a statement regarding the election fraud revealed in the July 15 Senate hearing about the Arizona audit.

Takeaways from the Hearing
In a race decided for Joe Biden by only 10,457 votes in 2020, the amount of fraud and irregularities far exceeds the margin of victory.
According to the audit:

3,981 people voted even though they did not register to vote until after the October 15th deadline.
11,326 people voted who were not on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the rolls on December 4, after the election.
18,000 people voted and then had their names mysteriously removed from the voter rolls after the election.
74,243 mail-in ballots were counted, despite there being no record of them ever being sent.

WATCH:
74,243 mail-in ballots discovered in Maricopa County “where there is no clear record of them being sent”#ArizonaAudit pic.twitter.com/rqaxkWqSrp
— Liz Harrington (@realLizUSA) July 15, 2021

Trump’s Response
Here is Donald Trump’s full statement:
“Arizona Senate hearings on Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with ‘no clear record of them being sent.’ There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls AFTER the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?). Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE.
The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.
Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?

President Trump On Audits: ‘Numbers Will Be Released Shortly…They Are Extraordinarily Big’

President Trump On Audits: ‘Numbers Will Be Released Shortly…They Are Extraordinarily Big’

President Donald Trump slammed the “Fake News” mainstream media for intentionally trying to push “disinformation” to suppress the massive amount of information flooding out from the states of Arizona and Georgia regarding election fraud in 2020.
President Donald Trump stated: “AP and other media outlets are doing major disinformation to try and discredit the massive number of voter irregularities and fraud found in both Arizona and Georgia. When the real numbers are released people will be shocked, but this is a concerted effort of the Fake News Media to discredit and demean. There has never been anything like it. Numbers will be released shortly, and they are extraordinarily big and highly determinative!”

President Donald Trump and his supporters are emboldened after revelations that many thousands of counted votes are tainted in Maricopa County, Arizona as the Republican state Senate’s forensic audit continues. The Trump Team responded with vindication when the audit found that 11,326 people in the county who voted in the November 3 election were NOT on the voter rolls on November 7, but were added to the voter rolls by December 4. This number is higher than Joe Biden’s supposed statewide “lead” in Arizona of 10,457 votes. Additionally, more than 74,000 mail-in ballots were counted in the county even though there is no recorded evidence of the ballots being sent to the “voters” in the first place — and Maricopa County withheld all photographic evidence of the mail-in ballot envelopes from the Republican audit team. Another round of subpoenas is expected, as state Senator Wendy Rogers calls for the Republican-controlled Arizona legislature to “recall” Joe Biden’s electors in the state.
Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan said at a hearing before Arizona state senators Thursday that his election audit found more than 74,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Maricopa County with no record of them being sent to the voters, and that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped down to zero during the counting process. Logan is demanding the full library of mail-in ballot images from Maricopa County, which the county has not provided to him. Biden’s official lead in Arizona stands at only 10,457 votes.
“We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent,” Doug Logan said. “And so we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them.”

— National File (@NationalFile) July 15, 2021

Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan stated that the standard of verification for mail-in ballots dropped considerably as the volume of the ballots increased. “We’ve had an affidavit that specifically stated that when mail-in ballots were received, that so many of them were received that the standard was reduced over time. They originally talked about, there was originally 20 points of comparison on the signature and then after some time they were told to go to ten points of comparison, then five. And then eventually they were just told to let every single mail-in ballot through,” Doug Logan stated, noting that Maricopa County is withholding mail-in ballot images that can be used as evidence. Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett recommended re-subpoenaing those images.

“The tally sheets out of Fulton County look like they were written for Saddam Hussein,” Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington stated, referring to Fulton County, Georgia, which is also firmly in the President’s sights in addition to Arizona.

House Republicans Launch “Freedom From Big Tech Caucus” to Stop Social Media Censorship

House Republicans Launch “Freedom From Big Tech Caucus” to Stop Social Media Censorship

Republican Reps. Ken Buck and Lance Gooden announced Friday the launch of the Freedom from Big Tech Caucus, a group of House Republicans working towards reining in major tech companies.
The caucus will focus on addressing anticompetitive and monopolistic practices by major tech companies, political censorship, and Big Tech’s relationship with China, Buck and Gooden announced in a statement. The caucus will also include Reps. Madison Cawthorn, Burgess Owens, and Paul Gosar, according to the announcement.
“Big Tech has abused its market power for decades, and Congress must act to hold these companies accountable and preserve the free market, promote competition and innovation, protect the freedom of speech, and foster a thriving digital economy,” Buck said in the statement.
The lawmakers argued that major tech companies’ market power allowed them to stifle competition and censor speech, negatively affecting consumers and benefiting China. The caucus will also work to address violations of privacy and data rights, and harmful content exposed to children online, according to the statement.
“Regulators have been asleep at the wheel while Big Tech has fleeced the American public of our personal data and our freedom of speech with their monopolistic behavior,” Gooden said.

🚨 I am excited to announce the launch of the Freedom From Big Tech Caucus with @LanceGooden, @RepBurgessOwens, @RepCawthorn, and @RepGosar.
Our focus:
✅Antitrust reform✅End censorship✅Protect children✅Crack down on China✅Support competition✅Strengthen privacy rights pic.twitter.com/RYZcu8SCWW
— Rep. Ken Buck (@RepKenBuck) July 16, 2021

Buck was one of the members of the House Judiciary Committee who proposed six bipartisan-supported bills in June aimed at addressing perceived market abuses from major tech companies. He has also been critical of Big Tech’s relationship with China, calling on Apple to separate itself from the Chinese state’s practice of forced labor.
Major tech companies have faced a number of antitrust legal challenges this past year, with two complaints against Facebook dismissed in June, and Google the defendant in four antitrust lawsuits. A complaint filed by 36 state attorneys general last week challenged Google over its alleged monopoly in the Android app market.
The companies also face pressure from enforcement agencies, with vocal Big Tech critic Lina Khan appointed to head the Federal Trade Commission in June. Both Facebook and Amazon petitioned for Khan’s recusal over her antitrust positions.

Judicial Watch Sues Defense Department for Records of Critical Race Theory Training at West Point

Judicial Watch Sues Defense Department for Records of Critical Race Theory Training at West Point

July 16, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Defense for all records related to diversity, inclusion, and equity training for first-year cadets entering West Point (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:21-cv-01795)).
This lawsuit was filed after the United States Military Academy failed to respond to an April 6, 2021, FOIA request seeking:

Copies of all diversity, inclusion, and equity training materials for first-year Cadets entering West Point. This includes lists of reading materials and presentation materials that promote diversity, inclusion, and equity for first-year Cadets.
Copies of all contracts between the U.S Military Academy and any organization or company responsible for coordinating and implementing diversity, inclusion, and equity programs and training for Cadets at the United States Military Academy.

In April, Congressman Mike Waltz (R-Fl), a West Point graduate, made public “examples of Corps of Cadets being mandated to attend seminars and presentations on critical race theory that included inflammatory lessons and presentations that are detrimental to the mission and morale of the U.S. Army.”
In a public letter to the superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Waltz demanding information about the mandated critical race theory training for cadets:
Information has recently come to my attention from unsettled soldiers, cadets, and families that raises serious concerns about the U.S. Army’s introduction of elements of critical race theory into cadet instruction…In February this year, I understand the U.S. Military Academy under your leadership required cadets to attend a mandatory seminar on “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.” According to the schedule I received, cadets ‘MUST attend at least one of the seminars.

I was provided a presentation slide from one of the workshops with the title of ‘White Power at West Point’ and ‘Racist Dog Whistles at West Point.’ Additionally, another presentation slide shared with me depicted a lecture by Dr. Carol Anderson of Emory University with the title “Understanding Whiteness and White Rage.
“Critical race theory is racist, anti-American, and repackaged Marxism.  It has no place in our military, let alone the storied heights of West Point,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Pentagon needs to immediately follow the FOIA law so the American people can fully understand and stop the extremist indoctrination of the U.S. Army’s rising leadership at West Point.”

Il “direttore della protezione del voto” di Obama fa pressione per un’azienda come “strumento” del PCC

Il “direttore della protezione del voto” di Obama fa pressione per un’azienda come “strumento” del PCC

Autore: NATALIE WINTERS
Traduttrice: Yanhuo
Revisore: Dandan
In primo luogo trattenuto da Tencent nell’agosto 2020 per fare pressione contro il divieto proposto dall’amministrazione Trump sulla sua piattaforma WeChat, McKeon è ancora registrato come lobbista attivo per conto dell’azienda tecnologica collegata al Partito Comunista Cinese.
Nei primi tre mesi del 2021, l’azienda di McKeon, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, ha ricevuto 200.000 dollari di risarcimento da Tencent. Durante quel periodo, la Casa Bianca di Biden ha anche abbandonato gli sforzi dell’amministrazione Trump per vietare la piattaforma a causa di problemi di sicurezza nazionale.
Secondo il The Washington Post,  McKeon era un “vice-direttore per la protezione degli elettori per Obama per l’America, aiutando a sovrintendere lo sforzo di reclutare e organizzare degli avvocati per essere gli osservatori  di sondaggi nelle elezioni del 2012”.
E  il profilo di McKeon presso l’azienda – dove ha anche fatto pressioni per il controverso Dominion Voting Systems – mette in evidenza la posizione :
Brian ha ricoperto ruoli senior per le campagne del Senato di Shaheen e Boxer e come vicedirettore per la protezione degli elettori di Obama per l’America.
L’Ufficio per la sicurezza internazionale e non proliferazione del Dipartimento di Stato ha  descritto Tencent come uno “strumento del governo cinese”, osservando che la società non ha “la capacità significativa di dire ‘no’ al Partito comunista cinese se i funzionari decidono di chiedere la loro assistenza”. Anche il gruppo progressista Amnesty International ha valutato le capacità di crittografia dei dati di Tencent zero su 100, osservando che non aveva “dichiarato pubblicamente che non accetteranno richieste del governo alla backdoor”.
Fornisce “una base per la sorveglianza e il controllo sociale facilitati dalla tecnologia” come parte della più ampia crociata del governo cinese “per modellare il mondo coerentemente con il suo modello autoritario”, ha aggiunto il rapporto del Dipartimento di Stato.
Altri lobbisti sul conto includono Alfred Mottur, la cui biografia professionale si vanta della sua connessione “con i leader ai più alti livelli della politica democratica, sia nel Congresso che nell’amministrazione Biden”.
“Oltre alla sua difesa, Al è un prolifico raccoglitore di fondi per il Partito Democratico. Ha guidato gli sforzi di raggruppamento dell’azienda durante le ultime elezioni presidenziali, raccogliendo più fondi per il DNC rispetto a qualsiasi altra società di lobby DC”, osserva anche la biografia di Mottur.
Nella registrazione sono elencati anche l’ex membro del Congresso Ed Royce e Travis Norton, ex consigliere del senatore Tim Scott. Marc Lampkin , che ha lavorato per l’ex presidente della Camera John Boehner e la campagna presidenziale di George W. Bush, e Greta Joynes, che ha lavorato per il rappresentante John Shimkus, stanno lavorando anche per conto di Tencent.

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

Yesterday we highlighted GA House Speaker David Ralston’s ethics problems over the years.

Speaker Ralston also yesterday called for an investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation into the election fraud committed across the Peach State during the 2020 election cycle.

This is the same Speaker Ralston who prevented a special session from being called during November’s coup.

Our concern is it is fairly well known the GBI is corrupt. Also, President Trump’s decisions on personnel has been shown to be horrible.

So can we trust the GBI? Will this be a way to just paper over the fraud?

Iowa Abortions Jump 14% as Dangerous Abortion Pill Used More Often to Kill Babies

Iowa Abortions Jump 14% as Dangerous Abortion Pill Used More Often to Kill Babies

Abortion numbers rose again in Iowa in 2020 as the abortion industry stoked fears during the COVID-19 pandemic and pushed abortion drugs on women.
The Des Moines Register reports 4,058 abortions were performed in 2020 in Iowa, up from 3,566 in 2019. That amounts to a 14-percent increase.
Abortions also increased by about 25 percent from the previous year in 2019, according to the report. The new data comes from an Iowa Department of Public Health report released Thursday.
Not just in Iowa but in many states, abortions were declining to all-time lows within the past five years. However, statistics from 2019 and 2020 are showing a reverse of the trend in a number of states, and many believe the increased availability of abortion drugs are a reason.

In Iowa, the Register and some Democrat lawmakers blamed the change on Iowa’s success in defunding the abortion chain Planned Parenthood from a state taxpayer-funded family planning program, which provides birth control and sex education.
“I once again think that when they take family planning services away from Iowans and expect abortion numbers to drop, they’re just kidding themselves,” state Sen. Janet Petersen, D-Des Moines, told the Register.
But Maggie DeWitte, executive director of Iowans for Life, said Iowans still have access to birth control. She said a 2018 ruling from the Iowa Supreme Court declaring abortion to be a “fundamental right” is more likely to blame for the increase.
“When you create a fundamental right, that means you can’t regulate abortions in any way,” she told the newspaper. “Our hands are tied.”
DeWitte’s organization and others are working to pass a state constitutional amendment to make it clear that there is no right to abortion or a taxpayer-funded abortion in Iowa.
State Rep. Steven Holt, R-Denison, told the newspaper that he does not think defunding Planned Parenthood had anything to do with the increase either.
“Let’s face it, … Planned Parenthood, their main focus and the way they make their money is abortion, and I think we all know that,” Holt said.
Planned Parenthood does about 95 percent of all abortions in Iowa and about 40 percent in the U.S., according to its own annual reports.
Iowans are trying to protect unborn babies from abortion, but many of their efforts have been blocked by the courts. In June, a federal judge blocked a 2020 law that ensures abortion facilities give women the opportunity to see their unborn babies on an ultrasound and hear their baby’s heartbeat at least 24 hours prior to the abortion. In addition, Iowa requires abortion facilities to provide women with information about abortion risks and resources available for parenting and adoption, and to confirm in writing that the women received it.
Across the country, states are seeing an increase in the sales of abortion drugs, which are used to abort unborn babies up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. The numbers may grow even more after President Joe Biden’s administration stopped enforcing a long-standing safety regulation earlier this year and allowed the abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without the woman ever seeing a doctor in person.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are warning mothers of the risks of the drugs and informing them of the life-saving abortion pill reversal procedure, which has saved about 2,000 unborn babies’ lives.

Arkansas County Passes Resolution Declaring It a “Pro-Life County” Opposed to Abortion

An Arkansas county approved a pro-life resolution Thursday to encourage mothers to choose life for their unborn babies.
ABC 40 29 KHBS reports the Washington County Quorum Court voted 10-4 to make their county the first in Arkansas to declare itself a “Pro-life County.”
“Somewhere out there tonight, there’s a woman in conflict and facing an uncertain future,” said Justice of the Peace Patrick Deakins, who introduced the resolution. “May she know, through the voice of this resolution and our county as a whole, she and her child are loved and that help is out there. Choose life.”
Deakins said he hopes their action will encourage other counties to take a stand for life, too.

According to the local news, the meeting was crowded with pro-life and pro-abortion activists who spoke for and against the resolution; and one person was removed from the meeting.
Angela Williams, who described herself as a ordained Presbyterian pastor and local resident, told the court that she opposes the resolution because she is “pro-lives.”
“God does not hate abortion. Abortion saves lives, and God blesses people who have abortions,” Williams told the board.
But Nicole Johnson, a local resident and pregnancy resource center volunteer, thanked the court for taking a stand for life. Johnson said she has seen the grief and sadness that women experience after an abortion.
“No one shames them, no one has to,” Johnson said. “You see, they shame themselves, regrettably, for the rest of their lives. … I have never met a woman who regretted giving life either through parenting or adoption, but sadly to say, every woman who I have talked with had regret, remorse and a broken, wounded heart after abortion.”
Several times when local pro-life residents were speaking, the court had to call order because of pro-abortion people interrupting them.
A few court members also spoke out against the resolution, including Justice of the Peace Eva Madison.
“I think that woman out there making that very difficult decision doesn’t want any of our input,” Madison said.
She told the court that they should go to the state legislature in Little Rock if they want to “legislate on abortion,” according to the report.
But the resolution that Washington County passed is a statement; it does not have legal power. It simply sends a clear message that the county wants unborn babies to be protected.
“Washington County, Arkansas, declares itself to be a Pro Life County, committed to the protection of all lives, including the lives of the unborn,” the resolution states. “… it is the duty of governments, such as ours, to protect this unalienable right to life of every person within our jurisdiction.”
Deakins said they just want to help mothers and babies and make sure they know the community will support them.
“People want to make it into taking someone’s choice or right away in fact it’s the opposite. I want expectant mothers and families who might be experiencing a crisis or indetermination about their situation to seek help we have resources in this area,” he said.
Over the past several years, dozens of local governments across the United States have passed pro-life resolutions and ordinances to protect unborn babies from abortion.
To date, 33 cities in Texas, Nebraska and Ohio have passed ordinances to ban abortions through the Sanctuary City for the Unborn initiative, and pro-life leaders said even more cities are considering action this summer. Unlike resolutions, ordinances are enforceable legislation.
In a huge victory for life earlier this spring, voters in Lubbock, Texas overwhelmingly passed a pro-life ordinance to ban abortions in their city. The vote resulted in Planned Parenthood stopping abortions there. The abortion chain did sue the city, but a judge recently dismissed its lawsuit.
Other local governments also have passed pro-life resolutions in recent years, including Prattville, Alabama; Roswell, New Mexico; Batavia and Putnam County, New York; Riverton and Highland, Utah; and the city of Springdale, Arkansas.

Yesterday was an earthquake in American election politics.

The fraud of Nov 2020, and the last nine months, was revealed in Arizona during a hearing on the Maricopa County election audit – for all to see – it is undeniable.

This is when the wool began to fall from much of the public’s eyes, and why Dominion began packing up printers and the like, possibly to destroy evidence.

In short, what happened in Arizona yesterday was probably the biggest story of 2021, if that is possible.

Historians will call yesterday out for infamy.

Yet, suspiciously, there was crickets in the media. Not all of course, but for sure in the corporate media.

If you look around, you can see who is really on your side, and who is on the side of the donors, or the corrupt GOP Establishment.

Where was Breitbart’s coverage of the Arizona election audit fraud reveal? Where were those screaming headlines reading, “74,000 more ballots received than requested”, “or “Dominion deleted access logs by a script that tried to log in 37,000 times in one day?”

We didn’t expect much from Fox News.

But, hey Breitbart, asking for a friend.

The Rats Start Fighting – Fulton’s Robb Pitts Goes After SoS Raffensperger For Calling For His Resignation/Takeover Of Fulton Elections

Please Follow us on Gab, Minds, Telegram, Rumble, Gab TV, GETTRFulton County, GA Chairman Robb Pitts today fired back at GA SoS Brad Raffensperger over his call for Pitts to resign and for the GA SoS to take over elections in Atlanta’s ground zero of election fraud – Fulton County.It is obvious to even the most casual observer that both individuals were up to their necks in corruption during the 2020 election cycle. Now Raffensperger wants to make Pitts the fall guy.This is going to get interesting. We can’t wait to get to the part where they start ratting each other out in the press, or even better, to the state legislature.You can read Pitts’ angry email sent today below:Fulton Chairman Pitts Releases Statement Following Raffensperger’s Call To Fire Fulton Elections Director, Threat To Takeover Elections BoardATLANTA – On Thursday, more than eight months after the 2020 election, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger demanded the firing of the Fulton County Elections Director. The demand came one day after he reiterated his threat of a hostile takeover of Fulton County’s Board of Registration and Elections. In response, Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts released the following statement:“It’s clear now that Secretary of State Raffensperger is putting his partisan politics ahead of reality,” said Chairman Robb Pitts. “He’s engaged in a desperate high-wire act to appease the believers of the Big Lie – whose votes he needs to hold off a primary challenger – after declining to cave to their demands and overturn the results of our free and fair election.”Pitts continued, “Mr. Barron managed an election in unprecedented circumstances, dealing with a pandemic and the tragic death of an employee. Three counts of the votes, including those monitored by the Secretary of State’s office, shows that there was no intentional wrongdoing or fraud in the elections.” “Secretary of State Raffensperger knows this and it’s obvious he’s trying to set the stage for a hostile takeover of our elections system because he wants a political win, which has been my greatest fear since SB202 passed,” said Chairman Pitts. “He has already said he wants to do so and now he’s thrown his lot in with his conspiracy theorist comrades to manufacture any excuse. I will continue to fight for Fulton and against his attempts to cancel the voices of Fulton County voters.”You Won’t Get Anywhere Else What You Get From The Georgia Record! Donate!

Is GA Bar Politicking Lin Wood – While Avoiding Justice for Victims?

Is GA Bar Politicking Lin Wood – While Avoiding Justice for Victims?

Georgia House Speaker David RalstonImage by The Lafayette UndergroundAs the legal maxim goes – Justice delayed is not justice served.So whatever happened to Georgia House Speaker Ralston, accused of delaying more than a thousand legal cases?Many of the cases involve Ralston representing defendants against alleged crimes such as drunk driving, pill mill, domestic violence, sexual abuse, child molestation, vehicular homicide, child cruelty, assault, terroristic threats, and other crimes. A client boasted of using Ralston’s legal services for this stall tactic.Ralston, an attorney in private practice, admitted he delayed cases using the state’s “legislative leave” law, but stated he has done nothing illegal or unethical.Rules for Thee But Not Me – Georgia Legislature EXEMPT from FOIAThis “Legislative Leave” is a privilege that no other attorney has. The Georgia Legislature has conveniently exempted itself from the Open Records Act, and the public is unable to FOIA Ralston’s calendar.Former FBI Agent Digs into the Court RecordsFormer FBI agent Derek Somerville told 11Alive News that House Speaker Rep. David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) has delayed more than a thousand legal proceedings in North Georgia since 2010.  The former FBI agent researched eight north Georgia counties and found Ralston requested 1091 legislative leave continuances, affecting 279 civil and criminal cases. The majority of the – 577 –  he said,  were for cases scheduled outside of the actual legislative calendar, plus the three weeks after adjournment.According to the AJC, in 2006, lawmakers in the House and Senate passed Senate Bill 503, which expanded the privilege to cover any time a lawmaker’s “presence elsewhere is required.”  It came before the House for approval just 90 minutes before the session’s required end at midnight, passing in the House 158-2, then in the Senate unanimously.After a public outcry in 2019, GA legislation approved a bill addressing this “privilege”.Ralston is considered one of Georgia’s most powerful politicians. Georgia Trends has previously named him one of their  “Most Influential Georgians.”Ralston’s Big Money & InfluenceRalston is well-known to campaign against incumbent conservatives that speak out against him. He pushes or halts legislation as he see’s fit, selects and removes people from committees as he deems. Nothing seems to get done in Georgia without Ralston’s blessing.Ballotpedia compiled Ralston’s entire campaign contribution history to the tune of $4,767,357. That is an astounding amount of money considering his rural district cast a total of 32,329 votes in the last election. He won in Nov 2020 with 83% of the vote.Stacey Abrams When Stacey Abrams served as the minority leader in the State House of Representatives, David Ralston complimented her in the NY Times “ability to reach across the aisle”.Most politicians avoid criticizing Ralston, even Stacey Abrams.  She told the AJC in 2019 “I believe that David Ralston will make the decision that is the best calibration of those two responsibilities, but I also recognize that this is a conversation for the General Assembly to have – and for him to have with his family and his law firm. I would leave it to him make that decision.”Ethics ComplaintsAccording to the AJC, complaints against Ralston were filed in 2019 with the GA Bar, accusing him of stalling court cases and attending non-legislative events, such as campaign fundraisers, golf tournaments, luncheons, speeches, etc. These complaints appear to be dismissed.Ga Bar Public Disciplinary History of David Ralston lists only 1 reprimand from 2016. It was regarding violating Rules of Professional Conduct for loaning a client money. Ralston is currently is in “Good Standing” with the GA Bar.Is the GA BAR Proactive for Victims Justice?Does the GA Bar not care about victims in the complaints? Clearly not, if they don’t discipline Ralston. Georgia is well known as a major hub of child trafficking. Many children go missing every month and disappear into a sinister world of pain, abuse and trauma.  The GA Bar Journal stated in  2012 – “Although significant strides have been made in Georgia, there is still work to be done to further strengthen law, policy, and programming aimed at combating human trafficking in our state and elsewhere.”What has been done since then? Nothing according to site searches and Georgias weak laws. Ga Bar has a Judicial Procedure and Administration/Uniform Rules Committee and Advisory Committee on Legislation. They have done very little we can tell, as the problem has grown worse in the past 9 years.A recent study showing Georgia law on Child Sexual Abuse is the worst in the South. According to a UGA, Georgia has the shortest civil statute of limitations in the southeast for child sexual abuse claims. Georgia also has a heightened gross negligence standard for sexual abuse claims when entities or organizations are defendants.Politicking Lin WoodLin Wood has No record of public discipline and has been in good standing since 1977. Mr. Wood has recently gained national media attention over the 2020 presidential election, speaking out about election fraud concerns and Canadian Dominion machines used. Based in Toronto, Dominion isn’t even used there for national races. Elections Canada had a snarky tweet 11/16 that they use paper ballots, counted by hand in front of scrutineers.Elections Canada does not use Dominion Voting Systems. We use paper ballots counted by hand in front of scrutineers and have never used voting machines or electronic tabulators to count votes in our 100-year history. #CdnPoli pic.twitter.com/dp7ZiB84ql— Elections Canada (@ElectionsCan_E) November 16, 2020Lin Wood has also been vocal against child sex trafficking.Is this why the GA Bar is attacking him? Lin Wood questions the elections that keep reinstalling politicians that do not protect the children and victims of crimes. While the GA Bar does nothing?Georgia has a Two-Tier System of Justice

FINCHEM: Hearing Proves Maricopa County Was A ‘Sh*t Show’ In 2020, No Way To Accurately Tell Election Results

FINCHEM: Hearing Proves Maricopa County Was A ‘Sh*t Show’ In 2020, No Way To Accurately Tell Election Results

Arizona State Rep. and Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem confirmed on Thursday that the ongoing Arizona election audit confirms that the 2020 presidential election in the state was a “sh*t show” that “cannot be called accurately.” Auditors presented a staggering compendium of evidence on Thursday that indicated the integrity of the Arizona election may have been compromised.
“The #AZAudit is proving that the Maricopa Election was a Sh*t Show – so many errors, discrepancies this election cannot be called accurately,” Finchem tweeted on Thursday. “Roughly 168K on demand ballots suspect. The audit team recommends canvassing to verify voters exist, just as Peter Navarro recommended.”

As National File previously reported, private auditing firm Cyber ninjas presented evidence of duplicated ballots with no serial numbers. Cyber Ninjas CEO stated in part, “And so, we have a whole bunch of ballots that also don’t have any serial numbers on them, so it’s quite possible that for the second one with the same serial number, there’s another one that matches up with it that literally doesn’t have a serial number on it, but it creates a lot of time and difficulty in resolving these issues when it was not done in a manner where it’s easy to match up and really, according to my understanding of what statute is, and what statute states.”
Additionally, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers called for Arizona’s electors in the 2020 election to be recalled, writing, “I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right.”

Shocking Details From AZ Audit Leave Many Questions Swirling

Shocking Details From AZ Audit Leave Many Questions Swirling

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R) joined by Judiciary Committee Chairman Warren Petersen (R) held a long-awaited hearing on July 15th where they received a detailed briefing on the Arizona Senate’s Audit of the 2020 Election in Maricopa County. Senate Audit Liason and Former Secretary of State Ken Bennett, Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan, and CyFIR founder Ben Cotton presented absolutely DEVASTATING findings from the audit which is still being held back by Maricopa County’s refusal to obey the Legislature’s legal orders and subpoenas.

Kyle Becker of BeckerNews summed it up nicely in a single tweet:

NOW I get why Maricopa County and Biden admin fought tooth and nail to prevent an independent audit. 74,000 absentee ballot mail-in records missing, 25K duplicates, voter rolls a mess, bleed throughs, tens of thousands of ballots on demand, admin passwords issues. A disaster.
— Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) July 15, 2021

Bear in mind as you read through these stunning revelations that according to Politico, the election in Arizona was decided by 10,457 votes over Trump, a 0.3% margin. When you’ve continually heard that there was no “meaningful” electoral fraud or that the amounts “wouldn’t impact” the election, remember that number: 10,457 votes.
Starting off the hour-long hearing Senate President Fann remarked on the audit,
“It’s taken longer than anticipated and we need answers”
First Let’s Talk About Duplicate Ballots in Arizona
Ken Bennett began the briefing by breaking down the numbers and particular processes involved. Bennett revealed that “We found thousands of duplicate ballots where those serial numbers are not on them. So it’s created a great difficulty matching up the ballots with their duplicates”
Forensic Cybersecurity expert, CyFIR founder Ben Cotton explained that the system images provided for the audit were flawed from the beginning,
“They (Maricopa County) did not use a forensically secure process to image those systems. So the dates and times on those cloned systems were altered by the cloning process.”
Cotton continued, explaining that in an ongoing battle between auditors and Maricopa County Board of Commissioners as well as the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department, the routers utilized at the primary counting facility and the router configuration files have not been provided as ordered,
“We have not received the router configuration files, we have not received the router data, And Mr. Bennett and myself were in multiple conversations with County officials who agreed to provide that data to us.”
“It’s critically important to substantiate some findings that we are seeing through the keyword searching and the processes already mentioned. There are a number of things that we know have occurred as a matter of fact which need to validate that information.”
Forensic Expert Confirms: AZ Election System Was BREACHED
“We know through public record, public statements that an element of the election system was actually compromised or breached during the course of the November 2020 election. It is a matter of public statement by Maricopa County as well as legal action and law enforcement action surrounding that particular incident. The registration server that was public-facing did have unauthorized access to that. In cybersecurity terms, it was breached.”

“The county has accepted that as an unauthorized breach. Because they actually issued a letter to a small subset of the voters who were affected by the breach and they issued that in January of 2021. In that letter, they acknowledged that there was unauthorized access to the server in November 2021.”

The hearing confirmed that this was the very same breach reported in December 2020 when The GOP Times wrote,

Neonnettle.com reported that “At the Kerwin residence, they were looking for any evidence within the seized computers that showed they’d been used to access the IT network at the office, as well as “protected voters’ information” and any indication that it had been disseminated to other people.”
“According to the warrant, the “subject devices” seized will “then be searched for records relating to violations of 18 U.S.C Section 1030 (computer intrusion) and 18 U.S.C. Section 1030(b) & 371 (conspiracy to commit computer intrusion)”, which occurred from October 21, 2020, through November 5th, 2020. The mention of conspiracy suggests there may be multiple suspects.”

“The second item, is it has become readily apparent in the course f our analysis that there are severe cybersecurity problems with the way the election management system and network was maintained.”

— National File (@NationalFile) July 15, 2021

Audit Shows: The Most BASIC Security Procedures Were Ignored
The next point raised according to Ben Cotton is easily the most disturbing: even the most rudimentary forms of basic computer maintenance that you average PC user can carry out were not utilized in these voting systems, leaving gaping, massive vulnerabilities which can be easily exploited to gain access to the election system.

“The last time that the antivirus was updated on these systems was the date that the Dominion software was installed on the systems. That happens to be August of 2019. There have been no Operating system updates or patches on this system since that same date. What that creates is a tremendous vulnerability to anyone who could get access through a system. Such as, if for example, the registration server was serving as a ‘jump box’ in other words it was dual networked so it was public-facing and also private facing into the election system. If someone accessed that system they would have no difficulty at all effectively penetrating and getting system-level access at the current patch state and antivirus state of these systems.”
“The vulnerabilities that exist on these systems would take an average script kiddie less than 10 minutes to get access to these systems.” Cotton told the Senate Hearing.
HYPR Security Encyclopedia tells us that a “script kiddie” is “A disparaging term often used to refer less experience malicious hackers who use existing software to launch hacking attacks. While security professionals tend to craft their own tools, script kiddies pick up off-the-shelf exploits, scripts, and tools to attack a target. Considered less skilled than professional penetration testers, or white hat hackers, script kiddies usually don’t understand the inner workings of software and computer networking.”
In other words, an Amateur could hack the Arizona Election system.
At the close of the hearing, Bennett, Logan and Cotton requested that Maricopa County Election officials be subpeonaed again.

BREAKING: Arizona Senator Calls For Recalling Electors After Bombshell Audit Hearing

BREAKING: Arizona Senator Calls For Recalling Electors After Bombshell Audit Hearing

Following the explosive hearing on the Arizona 2020 election audit, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers has now called for “the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona,” adding that a “new election must be conducted” due to the insecurity of the November election.
Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers took to Twitter to issue a statement calling for the Biden electors to be recalled and for the state to hold a new election following revelations stemming from the Maricopa County 2020 election audit hearing.

“I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses to turn over, & tens of thousands of unauthorized queries demonstrating how insecure the election was, I call for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona & a new election must be conducted. Arizona’s electors must not be awarded fraudulently & we need to get this right,” tweeted Rogers.

Among many revelations, the audit hearing revealed that the Maricopa County election system was “compromised” during the 2020 election, following testimony from audit witness and Tech contractor Ben Cotton, who explained that an “element of the election system was actually compromised or breached during the course of the November 2020 election…The registration server that was public facing did have unauthorized access to that. In cybersecurity terms, it was breached…The county issued a letter,” as National File reported. 

Cotton also revealed that in March, there were more than 37,000 anonymous administrative queries to access the 2020 election system in Maricopa County that defied “normal Windows behavior,” reported National File. “What we are seeing here…is we’re seeing anonymous logins at the system level that do not follow that pattern of normal Windows behavior.” Cotton said.
During the hearing former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who served as the Republican state Senate liaison to the Maricopa County audit, confirmed that “thousands” of ballots, that were set aside to be duplicated, did not have a serial number on them, nor a very “light” unreadable serial number, making them impossible to accurately count during the election, reported National File Senior Reporter Patrick Howley.
National File will continue to provide updates on the Maricopa County audit in Arizona and its potential implications regarding the legitimacy of the highly contested 2020 election.

GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger seems to have gotten ‘ole time election fraud religion’ on the day of the hearing in Maricopa County, AZ outlining election audit results.

Raffensperger wants people fired and the state to take over Fulton County elections.

Fulton County’s continued failures have gone on long enough with no accountability. Rick Barron and Ralph Jones, Fulton’s registration chief, must be fired and removed from Fulton’s elections leadership immediately. Fulton’s voters and the people of Georgia deserve better.— GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (@GaSecofState) July 15, 2021

It seems Raffensperger is trying to avoid accountability from his involvement in the 2020 election cycle.

BREAKING: White House admits they are aiding social media companies with censorship

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted today that the White House is actually flagging posts and asking social media companies such as Facebook to remove the posts that they claim have COVID misinformation:

“We are in regular touch with the social media platforms” about #COVID19-related misinformation, says @PressSec. “We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook.”
— Steve Herman (@W7VOA) July 15, 2021

“There’s about 12 people that are producing 65%” of anti-vaccine information and they remain active on @Facebook, according to @Facebook, adding that the social media company “needs to move quickly” to remove such posts. pic.twitter.com/0GaxRWwbgn

I know the media and the left are going to collectively yawn at this revelation, but imagine for a second if this was Kayleigh McEnany revealing that the Trump administration was flagging posts for removal from social media companies. This would be a huge scandal and social media companies would have to come and apologize for working with the Trump administration to censor people. Of this I have no doubt.
In fact McEnany has already issued a comment on this revelation, making a great point by suggesting that the White House is actually bolstering Trump’s chances of winning his Big Tech lawsuit:

Interesting! Here is the White House (probably unwittingly) bolstering President Trump’s Big Tech lawsuit, alleging these companies have become pseudo-government actors!
“We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” ⬇️pic.twitter.com/p0XoPIjyXV
— Kayleigh McEnany (@kayleighmcenany) July 15, 2021

She’s exactly right. Big Tech social media companies have become regulators of speech and thus, by working with the White House, are in effect government actors. One might argue this violates the first amendment, in that the government shall not abridge or curtail freedom of speech.
Go get ’em Trump!

Americans support election audits. Why are Democrats smothering them?

Americans support election audits. Why are Democrats smothering them?

Transparency. Accountability. Integrity.
These are words the Democrat Party loves to throw around to fluff their own ego while attacking Republicans.
But now, these are words the Democrat Party is terrified of as they seek to smother any talk of the 2020 election. Instead, they’re blocking and obstructing 2020 election audits, gaslighting on election integrity efforts, and using their allies in the mainstream media to cover their tracks.
On Tuesday, Joe Biden gave a “major” speech billed as a “voting rights” address in Philadelphia. In reality, he unleashed a slew of dangerous lies on Republican election reforms calling them the “greatest threat since the Civil War.”
Setting aside Biden’s racial fear-mongering on GOP voting bills that actually increase access to voting, Biden’s real reason for being in Philadelphia was no secret – to attack and discredit the pending forensic investigation of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania.
We’ve already seen very significant irregularities and fraud unearthed in Arizona and Georgia’s election audits. On the heels of these deep discrepancies, Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano has requested a full forensic review of pivotal Pennsylvania counties, including Philadelphia county, and rightly so. Philadelphia specifically has been a hub of corrupt elections for years.
The White House’s response? Dispatch Biden to attack the majority of Americans across this country who are concerned with election integrity and are in favor of the audits.
According to Rasmussen, 55 percent of voters support election audits. Yet Biden – the same Joe Biden who campaigned on unity – called those concerned with election integrity to be “bullies and merchants of fear, peddlers of lies” and said they were “threatening the very foundation of our country.”
If Joe Biden and Democrats have nothing to hide, why would they oppose the audits? Wouldn’t they want to prove that the 2020 election went off without a hitch, as they claim?
When tens of millions of Americans have questions as to the legitimacy of our elections, it is imperative that we get to the bottom of it. Dismissing these claims as “the Big Lie” and scorning anyone who dare question the narrative does great harm to our democratic system and subsequent elections.
Moreover, it highlights Biden’s weakness in showing that he doesn’t want to defend his own legitimacy as Commander in Chief.
The reality is, Democrats changed the rules in 2020 and now want to rig every election going forward to make it nearly impossible for conservatives to win again. They said this silent part out loud in their desperate attempts to pass H.R. 1/S.1.
Radical Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “we cannot rely solely on a wish of winning elections.”
New York Representative Jamaal Bowman said “if we deliver, we maintain power in 2022.”
Nancy Pelosi said she has a better chance at implementing her gun agenda “if we pass H.R. 1.”
When that didn’t work, they resorted to gaslighting and spreading misinformation on election reforms because they have no real argument.
Democrats should want American voters to have confidence in the elections process just as much as Republicans do. Free and fair elections should not be a partisan issue.
As Ohio GOP Chair, election integrity was a top priority of mine. I worked hand in hand with President Trump’s campaign to ensure Ohio’s 2020 election was done right. Months before the election, I helped recruit over 300 attorneys and poll observers to be on the ground, monitoring our election, troubleshooting any issues, and making sure there were no bad actors.
We do it right in Ohio where it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat, and that must be replicated across the country. Election integrity must be restored.
Democrats have launched investigations into everything over the last four years. During President Trump’s tenure, they wasted millions of taxpayer dollars and government resources on the Mueller Report, TWO impeachment shams, and countless other witch-hunts. President Trump could so much as sneeze and Pelosi and her cronies would demand an investigation.
Yet when a majority of Americans support independent audits into the 2020 election and irregularities continue to be found, Democrats want to turn around and instead cry wolf about Republican voter integrity efforts?
Our elected leaders have an obligation to the voters of this country to ensure that our elections were done right and that Americans believe in our democratic process moving forward. Audits are a major part of ensuring that integrity.
As Ohio’s next U.S. Senator, I will do everything in my power to protect the integrity of the vote and the integrity of America’s ballot box.

Judicial Watch Senior Attorney Robert Popper to Testify to House on Election Integrity and Reform

Judicial Watch Senior Attorney Robert Popper to Testify to House on Election Integrity and Reform

July 15, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that Senior Attorney Robert Popper will provide testimony Friday, July 16, before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties during a hearing titled “The Implications of Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee and Potential Legislative Responses.”
Date: Friday, July 16, 2021
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
Location: Via Zoom
To watch live online, click here: https://judiciary.house.gov/calendar/eventsingle.aspx?EventID=4632
The purpose of the hearing is to focus on the implications of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Mark Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, et al. v. Democratic National Committee, et al. (Nos. 19-1257 & 1258) and to consider whether a congressional response is called for along the lines proposed in H.R. 4.
In Brnovich, the court considered two Arizona election policies, one outlawing ballot harvesting and the other banning out-of-precinct voting. The court ruled that neither of these election policies violated the Voting Rights Act nor had a racially discriminatory purpose. Judicial Watch joined with Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) to file an amici curia (friends of the court) brief in this case, arguing that the parties challenging Arizona’s clean election laws “utterly failed” to show that the challenged voting procedure caused minorities to have less opportunity to participate in the political process and to elect representatives of their choice. The court agreed.
Reacting to the court’s ruling in Brnovich, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the court’s decision “a home run for cleaner elections, reaffirming that states may take action to prevent election fraud without waiting for it to occur within their own borders. This new decision rightly rejects the race baiting of the leftist partisans who pretend that neutral provisions to combat voter fraud (such as voter ID and bans on ballot harvesting) are presumptively racist. The decision also destroys the foundation of the Biden administration’s recent attack on Georgia’s election reform laws.”
For more than 25 years, Judicial Watch has been known for its aggressive, leading edge use of public records laws and lawsuits, as well as taxpayer, civil rights and whistleblower protection litigation to fight government corruption. Judicial Watch is a national leader in voting integrity and voting rights. As part of this effort, Judicial Watch assembled a team of highly experienced voting rights attorneys who have fought gerrymandering in Maryland, stopped discriminatory elections in Hawaii, and cleaned up voter rolls in California, Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, among other achievements.
Robert Popper is a senior attorney for Judicial Watch and director of its Election Integrity Project. Prior to joining Judicial Watch, Mr. Popper worked for eight years, five as deputy chief of the Voting Section, in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, in which capacity he garnered numerous professional awards. Before that, Popper worked as a private attorney in New York City for 17 years, where his practice extended to a wide range of legal matters, including voting rights.
In his testimony Friday, Popper will tell the Subcommittee:
One hears—and large news outlets dutifully report—that there is a “tsunami” of legislation “restricting the right to vote,” that states reforming their mail-in voting laws as COVID retreats are engaged in “voter suppression,” and even that these actions represent “the new Jim Crow.”  These claims are preposterous.  At best, they reveal a startling historical ignorance.  The grandfather laws, absurd literacy tests, poll taxes, intimidation and terroristic violence of the Jim Crow era have nothing whatever to do with, say, Ohio’s restriction of early voting from 35 to 29 days, or with limiting same-day registration.  Nor do they have anything to do with regulating absentee ballots, out-of-precinct voting, or voter ID requirements, all reasonable electoral integrity measures approved by the Carter-Baker Commission.
At worst, these statements reveal a startling cynicism, driven by a desire to inflame passions—and to raise funds.  Those who talk this way are being irresponsible.
Popper’s full prepared statement is available at the Judicial Watch website:

Recently, Judicial Watch Senior Attorney T. Russell Nobile testified on the same topic before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution in a hearing titled “Restoring the Voting Rights Act after Brnovich and Shelby County.” His remarks are available at the Judicial Watch website: https://www.judicialwatch.org/documents/nobile-july-2021-vra-senate-testimony/

Divided We Fall

Divided We Fall

Author : Jin Wang Editor: Isabella
Over a decade ago, I picked up a book entitled: “Are We Rome?”
Its message was compelling. In 262 pages, it suggested, with the persuasive and rational use of historical facts, that the United States is on a similar track as ancient Rome was when its powerful empire was destroyed in 476 A.D.—not by a more powerful enemy from without—but by a multitude of forces and influences from within.
The parallels between the Roman Republic and the American Republic are as undeniable as they are stunning.
In both empires, we can see the steady erosion of morality and a decadent society’s indifference to the sanctity of life. We see the insular culture of our capitals (Rome and Washington D.C.), the inability or unwillingness to safeguard and defend borders, the crumbling of a once-great infrastructure of roads and bridges, the escalating corruption of central government, and the smug ignorance of the world beyond our borders.
We see two empires being constantly split and fragmented into competing tribes of people, each concerned not with the whole but with their narrow, minority perspectives and opinions. We see the replacement of a once patriotic populace with one devoid of national loyalty and allegiance.
In short, we see decadence, decay, and two powerful empires—one doomed that lasted more than 500 years, and another that so far has survived 245 years.
We know that the glory that was Rome disappeared more than 1,500 years ago, consigned to the province of ancient history along with Latin, its similarly deceased language.
How much longer will the American Republic exist? What are America’s prospects? Are we too doomed to insignificance and oblivion?
Don Feder’s piece takes a look at some of these questions and offers some compelling answers. 
How Nations Slip from Greatness to Obscurity.
 Is America on a path of permanent decline? 
By Don Feder
Men, like nations, think they’re eternal. What man in his 20s or 30s doesn’t believe, at least subconsciously, that he’ll live forever?
In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons. As you pass 70, it’s harder to hide from reality.
Nations too have seasons. Imagine a Roman of the 2nd century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever.
Forever was about 500 years, give or take.
France was the thing in the 17th and 18th centuries. Now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim ummah.
In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British empire. Now Albion exists in a perpetual twilight. Its 95-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation in terminal decline.
In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low and its population is aging so rapidly, that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.
I was born in 1946, almost at the midpoint of the 20th century – the American century.  America’s prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the Greatest Generation, we won a World War fought over most of Europe, Asia and the Pacific. We reduced Germany to rubble and put the Rising Sun to bed.
It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity. We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia and fought international terrorism. We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world.
We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon. We conquered Polio, and now on our way to COVID.  We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA, the blueprint of life.
But where is the glory that once was Rome?
America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism – which has worked so well nowhere in the world. We’ve gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites. We have less freedom with each passing year.
Like a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We’ve traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution.
The distressed and dazed creature in the White House is an empty vessel filled and manipulated by his handlers. At the G-7 Summit, Dr. Jill had to lead him like a child.
In 1961, when we were young and vigorous, our leader was too. Now a feeble nation is technically led by the oldest man to ever serve in the presidency.
We can’t defend our borders, our history (including monuments to past greatness) or our streets. Our cities have become anarchist playgrounds.
We are a nation of dependents, mendicants, and misplaced charity. Homeless veterans camp in the streets while illegal aliens are put up in hotels.
The president of the United States can’t even quote the beginning of the Declaration of Independence correctly. Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago.
Crime rates soar and we blame the 2nd Amendment and slash police budgets.
Our culture is certifiably insane. We have men who think they’re women. We teach little boys to be girls. We have people who fight racism by seeking to convince members of one race that they’re inherently evil, and others that they are perpetual victims. A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person.”
We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom, while our birth rate dips lower year by year.
Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day. It’s a $29-trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality.
Our “entertainment” is sadistic, nihilistic and as enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. Our music is noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive.
Patriotism is called insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified.
A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress.
We’re asking soldiers to fight for a nation our leaders no longer believe in.
How meekly most submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks and hand sanitizers) shows the death of the American spirit.
How do nations slip from greatness to obscurity?
Fighting endless wars they can’t or won’t winAccumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repayRefusing to guard their borders, allowing the nation to be inundated by an alien hordeSurrendering control of their cities to mob ruleAllowing indoctrination of the youngMoving from a republican form of government to an oligarchyLosing national identityIndulging indolenceAbandoning faith and family – the bulwarks social order.
In America, every one of these symptoms is pronounced, indicating an advanced stage of the disease.
Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had?
I’m surrounded by ghosts urging me on…the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled or neglected.
This is the nation that took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War. I don’t want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.
During Britain’s darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen, “Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished.”
The same might be said of causes. If we let America slip through our fingers, if we lose without a fight, what will posterity say of us?
While the prognosis is far from good, only God knows if America’s day in the sun is over.

Allen West Condemns Democrats After National File’s Biden-Sheila Jackson Lee Voter Fraud Report

Allen West Condemns Democrats After National File’s Biden-Sheila Jackson Lee Voter Fraud Report

Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate and recent state GOP chairman Allen West addressed NATIONAL FILE’s breakthrough report on the alleged voter fraud ring operating in Houston, Texas during the 2020 election, which was reportedly supervised by the Joe Biden campaign’s Texas political director Dallas Jones. As we reported, a convicted forger working as a campaign assistant for Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was submitting ballots on behalf of unaware and dead “voters” in the 2020 election. (READ THE NATIONAL FILE REPORT) (WATCH PATRICK HOWLEY’S INFOWARS APPEARANCE ON THE REPORT).
“Well of course, there’s no doubt about that, that there were unconstitutional actions, that there were some very nefarious things going on. Here in Texas, Harris County, which is where Houston is based out of, is ground zero for what could have been a catastrophic result here in Texas because Harris County is the number one, the largest county in the state of Texas, third largest county in the United States of America. And we had an elections clerk down there, Chris Hollins, who without a doubt was doing things that were against the Texas Constitution,” recent Texas GOP chairman and current gubernatorial candidate Colonel Allen West told journalists Tom Pappert and Patrick Howley on NATIONAL FILE TV. (WATCH THE SEGMENT HERE). “He wanted to mail out 2.7 million unsolicited ballots, and he was also establishing curbside voting locations in Democrat precincts. And so when you talk about Sheila Jackson Lee she’s had a pretty questionable past with some of the things that she’s done, especially campaign finance issues as well. So, yeah, without a doubt everything the left wanted to do in terms of election integrity and undermining that, they wanted to have that happen in Harris County, and I live in Dallas County. That’s the other county where we have some issues with some of the voting machines there,” Allen West said.

Jail time!

Identities of living and dead people were stolen in Harris County, Texas to fraudulently vote in the 2020 election, according to bombshell audio obtained by NATIONAL FILE. A convicted forger who mailed the fraudulent ballot applications in Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s district worked as a campaign assistant for Sheila Jackson Lee’s 2020 campaign, and has gotten paid by Jackson Lee’s campaign efforts in the past. The Joe Biden campaign’s 2020 Texas political director Dallas Jones oversaw this alleged voter fraud operation and he was interrogated by the FBI in the last weeks of the 2020 election according to insiders. The audio below includes phone calls in which people confirm that their identities or the identities of their dead relatives were stolen in Harris County. This information has been provided to the Texas Secretary of State for the purpose of aiding Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office in formal investigations.

AUDIO CLIP 1: WOMAN SURPRISED TO FIND OUT SHE HAS BEEN VOTING: “They’ve got a Sylvia Thomas…voting in Harris County,” said private investigator and former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Charles Marler, who called Sylvia Thomas and correctly cited her February 19, 1940 birth date. Sylvia Thomas says “I’ve been away from Harris County” and confirmed that she has not voted in Harris County in recent years even though someone has been obtaining absentee ballots on her behalf. The woman does not recognize the name of Tomar Bishop, who obtained the absentee ballots associated with Thomas’ identity, or Gloria Palmer, the recent Sheila Jackson-Lee campaign PAC vendor who oversaw Tomar Bishop. Sylvia Thomas wonders “What else are they doing?” in addition to fraudulently voting on her behalf. Here is Sylvia Thomas’ absentee ballot application in the 2020 election (with her address obscured), which is just one of the fraudulent absentee ballot applications in the possession of NATIONAL FILE:

AUDIO TWO: A DEAD MAN APPLIES TO VOTE: In this call, private investigator Charles Marler confirms with a woman in Harris County that a man who applied to “vote” in the election named Jesse Burks passed away on November 4, 2015. The woman confirms this death. The dead Burks’ address matches the address of the “voter.” The woman does not recognize Tomar Bishop, who obtained the absentee ballot, or Gloria Palmer, who mailed the dead man’s ballot application in.

AUDIO THREE: A DEAD MOTHER APPLIES TO VOTE: Private investigator Charles Marler confirms with a woman in Harris County that her mother Gloria Chambers, born in 1946, voted in the election despite dying in 2010. The daughter of the deceased voter does not know Tomar Bishop, who obtained the absentee ballot, or Gloria Palmer, who mailed the dead woman’s vote in. “That’s fine, because we don’t know either one of those people,” said the daughter of the dead voter, consenting to cooperate with Marler’s investigation.
Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign paid convicted forger Gloria Palmer as a “campaign assistant” multiple times in 2020, according to Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign financial disclosures. Investigator Charles Marler confirms that the Gloria Palmer, who was paid by Jackson Lee’s campaign, is the same Gloria Palmer who mailed in the absentee ballot applications in 2020. A record shows Sheila Jackson Lee For Congress PAC paying Gloria Palmer for canvassing and campaign work in 2018. Here is a record of Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign paying Gloria Palmer to be a “campaign assistant” in 2020.
Investigator, Charles Marler, tells NATIONAL FILE that “The vast majority of victims are people who are not aware their vote was stolen. In Harris County the first ballot in from ballot harvesters is counted, all second votes are discarded for that individual.”

This is YUGE. 😲😲😲‼‼ @TrumpWarRoom @HowleyReporter Massive Voter Fraud Ring Linked To Biden Campaign Scandal Accelerates https://t.co/riuXQyBz6N
— 𝐃𝐨𝐧𝐢 “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐨𝐧”™ (@DoniTheDon_) October 26, 2020

Democrat political strategist Damien Thaddeus Jones, who served as regional political director for Beto O’Rourke’s U.S. Senate campaign, has come forward to blow the whistle on a massive voter fraud ring in Harris County, Texas. The voter fraud ring is overseen by Dallas Jones, who served as Texas Political Director for the Joe Biden presidential campaign. In this stunning audio obtained exclusively by NATIONAL FILE, Damien goes into detail about Dallas Jones’ fraudulent activity and work for Biden. On the tape, “Sheila” refers to Sheila Jackson-Lee. This article below delves into the massive evidence of voter fraud — including photographic evidence and sworn affidavits — that emerged in Harris County in 2020, and how its direct link to the Biden campaign provides even more justification for President Donald Trump’s ability to claim victory in the presidential election.
LET’S BREAK DOWN THE FACTS ON WHAT HAPPENED IN THE FRENZIED FINAL WEEKS OF THE 2020 ELECTION:
Harris County, Texas conducted 24-hour voting in the 2020 election, even as the county became engulfed in a voter fraud scandal that ensnared the Joe Biden campaign’s recent Texas political director Dallas Jones. A well-placed insider named Constance Stanton tells NATIONAL FILE that Dallas Jones was interrogated by the FBI and fired by the Biden campaign after he was implicated in an illegal Ballot Harvesting operation in sworn affidavits first reported by NATIONAL FILE. This scandal has since been picked up by various news outlets across the nation, including by Fox News. Vote count discrepancies are reported in Harris County.
Sources within the FBI told NATIONAL FILE that Dallas Jones was interrogated but was not necessarily “picked up,” implying that Jones voluntarily submitted to FBI interrogation. Multiple sources tell NATIONAL file that Jones was fired by the Biden campaign. (RELATED: Texas Poll Watcher Testifies on 2020 Voter Fraud in Houston).
Here is what Constance Stanton told NATIONAL FILE in October: “Harris County Clerk’s Office in Harris County, Texas is intending to conduct an illegal polling operation on Thursday, October 29th, 2020. Harris County, home to Houston Texas, is the third largest voting county in the country with approximately 2.5 million voters. As Harris County goes, so goes Texas. As Texas goes, so goes the nation.  Harris County did not allow the GOP State Conversation to take place this past summer and it seems the socialist Democrats took complete control of Harris county when they won offices in 2018, by a 200,000 vote margin.
20 private investigators have uncovered a great deal. What has been uncovered is a group of masterminds wanting to destroy the Texas voting voice. Some of the masterminds include Democrat County Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Democrat State Senator Boris Miles. They have two captains, Gerald Womack and Dallas Jones.
Jones was hired by the Biden campaign to run the Biden Texas operation. These captains have scores of paid vote harvesters working for them. Vote harvesting is a second-degree felony under the Texas Election Code. This is a criminal operation that these Democrat elected officials are running. Dallas Jones was picked up by the FBI, the weekend before last, for 2 days of interrogation. He was subsequently fired by the Biden campaign.
They harvest ballots by mail from nursing homes, homeless centers, door to door in poor neighborhoods, often dressed as Census workers. They offer $50 gift cards in front of stores asking people to take ballots by mail, acquired from the above, to sign and mail at a local post office. They hold ballots by mail in several locations where people forge signatures on the collected ballots by mail. Evidence has been presented to the local DA, Kim Ogg, who received a substantial amount of political contributions from Soros funded organizations in her election in 2018. The evidence included an affidavit and other evidence, including photographs, from a 30 year black police officer who was serving as a poll watcher and saw the election judge use a table full of IDs to vote unregistered people that were voting by drive through. This is a criminal act according to the Texas Election Code. The district attorney’s office did not even want to entertain our criminal complaint. This information along with other affidavits of harassment of poll watchers and alternate election judges was sent to the office of Republican Atty. General Ken Paxton.
The Democrat County clerk, Chris Hollins, instituted drive-through voting by anyone for any reason which is in violation of the Texas Election Code. A petition for writ of mandamus before the Texas Supreme Court last week to stop this illegal activity and they voted 7 to 1 to deny the petition. The County clerk has now opened up the early voting polling locations until 10 PM for the rest of the week until the last day of early voting, when eight polling places will be open 24 hours. Of the 120 early voting locations, the vast majority are in Democrat areas of the county. In violation of the Texas Election Code, Hollins independently mailed ballots by mail to all individuals 65 and older, in violation of Texas Election Code, which requires an individual to request a ballot by mail before it can be sent. Hollins planned on sending every registered voter a ballot by mail, but the Texas Supreme Court granted our petition and stopped this. The Harris County voter files have not been purged since 2016 when the Democrats took charge. We can document that dead people have voted in this election and people who have moved out of state. No arrest warrants have been issued and we do not expect them to issue any. In the meantime, the Democrats are implementing their massive election voter fraud scheme, mostly in open sight. One arrest would go miles in stopping this election fraud scheme. The drive through locations are located in primarily in Democrat areas. This also violates the 14th Amendment.”
Constance Harris’ statement concludes

PRESS RELEASE: Discrepancy in 3 voting counts from Harris County @CGHollins. Still no answer. Daily Record of EV shows 1,090,445 votes, while the number reported by Clerk to the @TXsecofstate is 1,081,265, & @HarrisVotes roster shows 1,092,521. Which is correct? #txlege pic.twitter.com/lZMXK5XVHB

At Harrisvotes.com, clicking on “Polling Locations” and then the clock icon for “Hours of Operation” show that beginning on Thursday October 29 there were EIGHT polling locations that had 24-hour voting rolling into Friday morning.

Texas poll watcher Raymond T. Stewart, a retired police officer, submitted a sworn affidavit Thursday that was provided to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. That affidavit, first obtained by NATIONAL FILE, alleges that a Houston precinct judge and staff illegally used a stack of driver’s licenses in their possession to allow people to vote illegally in the 2020 election at a drive-through voting window created by the Coronavirus pandemic. Stewart’s affidavit and photos of the scheme are presented below. The acting precinct judge’s identity has been confirmed by the Harris County Clerk’s Office and insiders identify her as a Democrat.
Harris County, where Houston is located, is also the site where the Joe Biden campaign’s Texas political director Dallas Jones is accused of running an illegal ballot harvesting operation, according to two separate affidavits submitted to the Texas Supreme Court by former law enforcement officials. Here is the GoFundMe page for private investigators who are busting what insiders say is one of the largest voter fraud rings in the United States. Here is a photo from the scene of the stack of driver’s licenses.

Here Is The Sworn Affidavit, Under Oath, of Raymond T. Stewart:
“My name is Raymond T. Stewart. I am above the age of eighteen years and am fully competent to make this affidavit. The facts stated in this affidavit are within my personal knowledge and are true and correct.
“I am a 30+ year veteran Texas Peace Officer. I am a volunteer poll watcher for Candidate Andre Hines. On 10/13/2020, at 8:40am, I arrived at polling location Northeast Multi-Services Center, PRCT ID SRD141C, 9720 Spaulding Street, Houston, Texas 77016.”
“I informed the staff that I was a poll watcher for a candidate and had my paperwork. I asked for the precinct judge to sign my required paperwork so I could start work. The precinct judge is identified as April Elmore (Gibson) and she was there but refused to sign my paperwork and she instead directed me to someone inside named Madonna. Madonna signed the paperwork but not in the designated signature line. I then began my work as a poll watcher.”
“I observed several oddities but the most concerning was a table in-between the sign-in tables One and Three. At that table was a large stack of Texas Driver’s Licenses. Staff would come inside from the drive-through voting booth and scan a driver’s license from someone outside and get a ticket and return outside. But sometimes a staff member would search through the stack of driver’s license on the table, then scan it, receive a ticket and also go outside to the drive-through booth. As a Police Officer, I quickly became suspicious that they were committing a crime by having the unattended D.L.’s just sitting on the table and that possible voting crimes were being committed using these forms of ID. Also during this time-frame an employee of the Harris County Attorney’s Office came by and he conversed with April but nothing changed and he departed. Since I was there as a poll watcher and not there as a Police Officer, I just continued to observe and considered how to deal with this situation. About that time a Precinct 1 Constable (Deputy W. Schultz) arrived at the polling location and he happened to be someone I knew professionally. I spoke with the Deputy outside and informed him of what I had observed. He was amazed and asked for evidence which I provided to him.”
“Unfortunately our conversation was overheard by a staff member in the parking lot. The Deputy went inside the polling location but at this time the driver’s licenses were removed and hidden from the table. The Deputy departed the area apparently to consult with the election taskforce and supervisors. A spoke with him several times that day via phone and in person regarding my observations. At 1:00pm April commanded me to leave the polling location because I had observed and collected evidence and she informed me that ‘I couldn’t.’ I have not received any call from any Federal, County nor State official investigating these serious actions and crimes.”
Raymond T. Stewart’s Affidavit Concludes

NATIONAL FILE RECENTLY REPORTED:
The Joe Biden campaign’s Texas Political Director has been formally accused of helping to run an illegal ballot harvesting operation, according to two separate affidavits filed Monday at the Texas Supreme Court.
Two private investigators, including a former FBI agent and former police officer, testify under oath that they have video evidence, documentation and witnesses to prove that Biden’s Texas Political Director Dallas Jones and his cohorts are currently hoarding mail-in and absentee ballots and ordering operatives to fill the ballots out for people illegally, including for dead people, homeless people, and nursing home residents, in the 2020 presidential election.
The affidavits were filed as part of the class-action lawsuit against Harris County and the state of Texas, filed by citizens, called Steven Hotze, M.D. et al. Journalist Patrick Howley of NATIONAL FILE has exclusively obtained this testimony and much more evidence will be coming out in the case. Dallas Jones was named the Biden campaign’s Texas Political Director in early September.

“I am currently involved in an investigation related to a wide-ranging and fraudulent ballot harvesting scheme in Harris County intended to rig the elections in the Houston/Harris County area. This scheme involves voter fraud on a massive scale.
“Based on interviews, review of documents, and other information, I have identified the individuals in charge of the ballot harvesting scheme. These individuals includes political consultant Dallas Jones who was recently hired by the Joe Biden for President campaign to oversee their Harris County initiative. District 13 Texas State Senator Borris Miles, who is the handler of Mr. Jones, political consultant Gerald Womack, and Precinct 1 Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis. One of the companies these individuals are using as a front for this operation is AB Canvassing, although there are others that have been identified that we are investigating.”
“I have in my possession video-taped interviews of witnesses attesting to the aforementioned people having groups of people completing thousands of absentee and mail-in ballots, including completing ballots for deceased individuals; illegally going into nursing homes, with the complicity of the nursing home staff, and filling out and forging the signatures of nursing home residents; signing up homeless individuals to vote using the ballot harvester’s address then completing the ballot and forging the homeless individual’s signature.
“This entire operation is being run by the elite politicians of the Democrat Party in Houston/Harris County. FURTHER AFFIANT SAYETH NOT.
HERE IS THE AFFIDAVIT OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR AND FORMER FBI AGENT CHARLES MARLER, SUBMITTED UNDER OATH. READ IT HERE: 2020-09-27_Charles F. Marler Affidavit: 
“My name is Charles F. Marler. I am above the age of eighteen years and am fully competent to make this affidavit. The facts stated in this affidavit are within my personal knowledge and are true and correct.”
“I formerly worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigations where I was an Investigative Specialist conducting undercover operations on espionage and terrorist targets. I am now a private investigator.”
“In December of 2019, I was approached by two individuals who witnessed activity from an illegal ballot harvesting operation in Harris County. Since that date, I have been investigating the illegal ballot harvesting operation.”
“During my investigation, a core group of names continued to surface regarding the organization and operation of the voter fraud scheme. Witnesses have stated to me that Precinct 1 Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis and District 13 Texas State Senator Borris Miles are leading the illegal ballot harvesting operation in Harris County, Texas. Their chief lieutenants are Houston businessman Gerald Womack and political consultant Dallas Jones who work directly under them in executing the ballot harvesting operation in Harris County, Texas.”
“Witnesses have shown me and described to me how the ballot harvesters take absentee ballots from the elderly in nursing homes, from the homeless, and from unsuspecting residences’ mailboxes. The ballot harvesters then complete the ballots for their preferred candidate and forge the signature of the “voter”. Two witnesses stated to me that there are two individuals employed at the Harris County Clerk’s Office who are aware of the illegal ballots and help facilitate and mask the processing of the ballots into the legal stream of ballots.”
“I have been made aware of a law enforcement investigation in the Spring of 2020 regarding illegal ballot harvesting. Several interviews of individuals were conducted. After the interviews became public, former Harris County Clerk Diane Troutman, resigned alleging health concerns due to COVID-19. However, witnesses have told me that Ms. Troutman was arguing with Commission Rodney Ellis about the legality of the mass purchasing and mailing of mail-in ballots and that Troutman was concerned she would be included in the eventual arrest pertaining to illegal ballot harvesting. Instead of coming forward and exposing the scheme, Ms. Troutman abruptly resigned. Witnesses have stated that Commissioner Ellis was not deterred and continued to move forward with the plan to mass mail ballots and expand the illegal ballot harvesting scam. Another witness stated to me that an employee of Commission Ellis, Tyler James, has bragged that he could guarantee that the illegal ballot harvesting operation, with the help of mass mail-in ballots, could harvest 700,000 illegal ballots.”
“It appears that law enforcement agencies are currently investigating these alleged crimes and I will provide them with the evidence that I have already collected and am continuing to collect. Sadly, these law enforcement agencies will be working to prosecute these crimes well after the November 3, 2020 election.”
Here Is The GoFundMe Page for the ongoing private investigation which is working with law enforcement. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton recently announced 134 felony charges against four defendants stemming from an alleged 2018 Democrat primary scheme to use fake disabilities provide mail-in ballots to people who were not disabled. The Democrat claim that fear of Coronavirus constitutes a disability has been only partially successful in Texas. Harris County is sending mail-in ballot applications to county voters 65 and over, so nursing homes remain a hotspot for potential fraud. Texas began mailing absentee ballots to voters for the presidential election on September 19.

NATIONAL FILE RECENTLY REPORTED
Citizen journalist Colleen Vera has discovered evidence of what appears to be a massive voter fraud ring operating in the state of Texas involving mail-in voting and Democrat political campaigns. Evidence presented below includes a video of a Democrat campaign surrogate harvesting mail ballots from a nursing home, audio of a Democrat campaign worker admitting to harvesting ballots from a nursing home, and mail-in ballots from Harris County that all have the same handwriting and envelope process.
Vera alleges that the campaign of Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee recently paid two convicted forgers, and that other Democrat campaigns have also paid convicted forgers for canvassing efforts. I spoke to Collen Vera regarding her findings as well as longtime Democrat Party operative Gerry Monroe, who knows full well what is happening in Harris County:

Breaking: Vote By Mail FRAUD BUSTED ON TAPE https://t.co/HjGmDauKxU
— Patrick Howley (@HowleyReporter) July 30, 2020

Colleen Vera of Texas Trash Talk Reports…
After the 2016 Democratic Primary, a candidate for Harris County Constable (Pct 3), Jasen Rabalais, filed a lawsuit claiming that a campaign worker for another candidate,Michel Pappillion, “deliberately falsified, illegally completed or unlawfully influenced the ballots and early voting applications of elderly residents in Harris County.”
The lawsuit was dismissed. But the following audio tapes had been made by the  Rabalais campaign  after he found out that an “alleged harvester” was working for an opponent’s campaign.
Link to Audio #1:  Gives name of “alleged harvester”
Link to Audio #2:  “Alleged harvester” explains the services provided (phone # redacted)
Then during the 2018 Primary, the following video was posted by Direct Action Texas. It appeared to show a campaign worker for Texas State Rep Harold Dutton Jr harvesting ballots of 400 elderly voters.
After viewing the video, I decided to do some research. I figured, if there was any evidence of mailed ballot voter fraud to be found in Harris County, the more recent one – Dutton’s race – was the best place to start.
I filed a request for public information covering the 1359 voters who voted by mail in Harold Dutton’s race. I requested electronic copies of the voters’:

applications for ballots by mail and
returned ballot carrier envelopes.

My first thought was to match each voter’s mailed ballot application with the voter’s ballot envelope and compare signatures to find those which may not match. But as I reviewed the documents, something else jumped off the page…

32 hand written applications for mailed ballots – all from different voters – but all written in the exact same handwriting.
Looking closer, something else jumped off the page.
All 32 returned their application for a ballot by mail in the same pre-printed envelope with the same style stamp.
… But then I printed out the envelopes which carried their returned ballots and the BIGGEST COINCIDENCE of ALL jumped off the page…ALL THESE VOTERS LIVED IN THE SAME PRECINCT!  Precinct #259…Additional research showed this same handwriting on multiple ballot by mail applications from precinct #259 every year going back to 2008…If that wasn’t enough to cause concern, I had to title this set of applications “Alleged Harvester A” because I found two more sets of multiple applications with similar handwriting, envelopes and stamps from varying precincts. I titled those “Alleged Harvester B” and “Alleged Harvester C.”…
30 ballots from Precinct #259 – in which the voters voted for ALL the same candidates – and they ALL used the same style “X” to mark their ballots.

…I filed another public information request and received a handwritten sign out sheet for persons who had picked up packages of 50 or more applications for mailed ballots in 2018. Two concerning issues from that list.

The FIRST PERSON to pick up multiple applications for ballots by mail in 2018 is the SAME WOMAN from the 2016 audio tape who explained how she accesses nursing homes to acquire mailed ballots for candidates.
TWO of the first three persons who picked up multiple applications for ballots by mail in 2018 have FORGERY convictions…

Federal Election Commission records show that US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee did make multiple payments to convicted forger Gloria Palmer in 2016:

Texas Trash Talk passage ends
(Collen Vera alleges that Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign has paid two convicted forgers, Gloria Palmer and Sheree Harris Fisher, as recently as February 2020. Records show that Sheila Jackson Lee vendor Gloria B. Palmer is the same age as Texas convicted forger Gloria B. Palmer. Vera alleges that Fisher is also a convicted forger)

Megan Fox Hits Back at Her Haters Upset She Didn't S*** All Over Donald Trump

Megan Fox Hits Back at Her Haters Upset She Didn't S*** All Over Donald Trump

Donald Trump broke people and the internet is stupid. That’s the best way to describe the apparent outrage over this Megan Fox interview. She was a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Show with guest host Arsenio Hall. To set the stage, Megan Fox was just at a UFC show where she sat near President Trump. That’s it. That’s the stage.

Megan Fox on Machine Gun Kelly’s Outfits, Doing Ayahuasca with Him in Costa Rica & New Thriller

youtu.be

He was a legend. That arena was very supportive of Trump when he came in.That’s all she said. She didn’t say it was her personal opinion that he was a legend. Megan Fox didn’t defend Trump’s stellar record on jobs or point out how he did better with every minority and minority-adjacent group than any Republican before him. She didn’t say he had nice hair or she wished she could have been as pretty as Kayleigh McEnany. All Megan Fox said was “so, like, Trump sat down and like wow.” Arsenio didn’t even follow up. It was a 60-second anecdote about the Secret Service. Who, had there been an attack, would have been more than happy to jump on her. You know, for protection.Yet that was enough apparently to trigger the libs to go all catty mean girl on her. Most likely trying to cyberbully her into a teary-eyed apology. Fox didn’t provide any examples. She just lashed out at her haters via Instagram Stories.

THE ARENA WAS FILLED WITH UFC FIGHT FANS, MANY OF THEM CLEARLY REPUBLICAN BASED OFF THE INSANE CROWD REACTION HE RECEIVED WALKING INTO THE T-MOBILE VENUE.REALLY LOVING THIS UNEDUCATED, MID-EVIL, PITCH FORK CARRYING, BURN A WITCH AT THE STAKE MENTALITY THOUGH. THE WORLD NEEDS MORE OF THAT.

You tell ’em, sister! We need less caving to cancel culture. More telling haters and losers to shut the f*** up. This is where we’re at in American politics. Megan Fox can handle herself with more composure and speak more rationally about the former president than anyone on CNN or MSNBC. I trust her more on policy too.Get your content free from Big Tech’s filter. Bookmark this website and sign up for our newsletter!

Why The Border Crisis is a Public Health Crisis

Why The Border Crisis is a Public Health Crisis

July 15, 2021

|
Judicial Watch

“Those of us who want a secure border, those of us who want the laws enforced … we’re on the side of those who are trafficked. Those that want lawlessness on the border, those than want open borders … they place innocents in harm’s way.”
The details of the Biden administration’s (mis)handling of the border crisis remain a mystery to many, but Judicial Watch is fighting hard to get the most pressing questions answered. Concerned about the impacts of President Biden’s lax border policy, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton is raising important questions about the lack of immigration law enforcement. “Is our country being harmed, are citizens being harmed, are illegal aliens being harmed?” Fitton stated Friday. With U.S. Border Patrol failing to conduct COVID-19 testing for all migrants entering the country, Fitton believes the Biden administration’s policies are creating a dangerous public health crisis. “It’s not just national security, it’s not just crime, it’s also public health,” Fitton explained. “Public health rules and the ability of the government to control threats to public health are significant when it comes to controlling and protecting the borders, and the Biden administration has thrown it all out the window.” 
As Fitton announced , Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for information on the COVID-19 technical guidance provided to the Office of Refugee Resettlement to illegal aliens released by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. The lawsuit seeks specific details related to the transmission, testing, mitigation, and/or treatment of COVID-19 for undocumented immigrants who are in or are released from Department of Homeland Security and/or Customs and Border Patrol custody.
“We’re being told by the Biden administration that COVID is a dramatic risk to the American people,” Fitton continued, “and yet all the rules relating to testing aren’t being enforced at the border.” 
If you’re concerned about the unfolding humanitarian crisis at our southern border, support Judicial Watch today.

Jenna Ellis is DONE With the Party, Rips Ronna Up and Down

Jenna Ellis is DONE With the Party, Rips Ronna Up and Down

Jenna Ellis is done with the Republican Party, and is calling out the Republican National Committee and its chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel.

Amid reports that the Justin Riemer, chief legal counsel for the Republican National Committee, bashed Donald Trump and his allies’ efforts to uncover voter fraud, Jenna Ellis is leaving the Republican Party.
During the July 12 episode of Just the Truth, Ellis’ show on Real America’s Voice, she announced her decision to leave the party until its top officials resign for not supporting Trump and conservative values.

“All of them, including Ronna McDaniel, should resign now. Until they do, as of today, I am resigning from the party,” Ellis said.
“I am changing my voter registration, and I am no longer a Republican until the party decides that it wants to be conservative again. Even if I stand alone for the truth, I will stand for the truth,” she added.
Ellis’ resignation comes soon after the Washington Post reported that Riemer sent an email asking an RNC official to not share discussions about voter fraud.
“What Rudy and Jenna are doing is a joke and they are getting laughed out of court,” Riemer said, referring to Ellis and Rudy Giuliani.
“They are misleading millions of people who have wishful thinking that the president is going to somehow win this thing,” the attorney added.
Business Insider also reported on Riemer’s email in a discussion about an early copy of Michael Wolff’s forthcoming book, Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency. The book reveals that Jenna Ellis was forwarded the email from Riemer, which she read during a dinner with Giuliani and former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik.

Kerik discussed the RNC and Ronna McDaniel in a recent appearance on Newsmax, calling McDaniel a “liar” for saying that the RNC worked hard for Trump.

Ronna McDaniel also claimed that the RNC was working hard to support election integrity and the audits. According to Senator Doug Mastriano of Pennsylvania, who is leading the fight for an audit in his state, he has “heard nothing from the RNC, from November to today.

Jenna Ellis has been calling McDaniel out in several tweets over the past few days.
In one tweet, Ellis makes a great point: the GOP needs strong conservative leaders if they want to win elections and have the support of their voter base.
“If conservatives want to win, we need to be led by other (wait for it) actual conservatives who will stand for America First and our founding principles,” she wrote.

“In Playbook: ‘Anyone siding with Ronna is simply outing themselves as the self-serving politicians that have continued to undermine Trump and America for years. These people aren’t living by principles and truth; they’re siding with corruption and lies for political expediency,’” Ellis wrote.

“Hahahahaha Ronna goes on Fox with the chyron ‘GOP sees surge in donations ahead of midterms.’ Nothing about her lies or Riemer emails? What an obviously placed commercial to rehab the RNC. They REAAAAALLLLLLY don’t want us to stop funding them,” she wrote in another tweet.

Ellis also tweeted:
“Questions all real journos need to ask Ronna EVERY SINGLE INTERVIEW:
Why didn’t you fire Justin Riemer in Nov 2020 like you promised Trump?
Why did the RNC deny the Wolff story as false when you had the Riemer emails?
Where did the $200M raised for election integrity go?”

— Jenna Ellis (@JennaEllisEsq) July 13, 2021

Apparently Ellis was likely right over the target in her attacks on McDaniel, and she couldn’t handle being called out.
“WTH? GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel Blocks Trump Election Lawyer Jenna Ellis on Twitter After News Breaks on RNC Attorney’s Election Lies,” Bernard Kerik tweeted.

An Interview With Alexander Dugin

An Interview With Alexander Dugin

Alexander Dugin. All photos courtesy of The Wolf in the Moonlight, a documentary directed by Nicholas Rooney and produced by Theatre of Life Productions.
The first sentence of Alexander Dugin’s English-language Wikipedia page says that he is a “Russian political analyst and strategist known for his fascist views.” Dugin has been called many things—“the most dangerous philosopher in the world,” “Putin’s brain,” a modern-day Rasputin whose whose 1997 tome The Foundations of Geopolitics established the modern school of Eurasian geopolitics and became required reading for Russian military officers—but fascist doesn’t really fit. In fact, Dugin posits his seminal 2009 work, The Fourth Political Theory, as the alternative to the three previous ideologies of communism, fascism, and liberalism. He describes his philosophy as anti-fascist, anti-racist, and yet overwhelmingly anti-liberal.
The dissonance between Dugin’s English-language Wikipedia page and his own beliefs strikes at the heart of his work. (It also bolsters the founder of Wikipedia’s own case against the website’s neutrality, and is the reason Countere uses blockchain-based Everipedia). Dugin advocates multipolarity, in a geopolitical and metaphysical sense: that there is not one Western “truth”, but a Russian truth, an African truth, and so on. This doesn’t mean that truth doesn’t exist. Think about it from a physics perspective: the speed of a train in Japan is different depending on if you measure it from Earth or from Mars. Both planets can be correct in their measurements—absolute truth exists—but the absolute truth depends on your frame of reference.
[embedded content]
That sounds reasonable enough—branches of the American Right and Left might even agree—but Dugin’s theories become much more threatening in action. They were used as the metaphysical justification for Russian intervention in Syria: simply to prove, Dugin argued, that the United States is not the “only boss in the world.”
Basically, Dugin has created the philosophical framework for anti-Americanism all over the globe. He calls on societies to reject Western individualism, rediscover their ethnos, and become confident in the truths of their civilization. American left and right-wingers wouldn’t be so enthused after learning that Dugin believes that their visions of “progress”—whether promotion of democracy or LGBTQ+ rights—are racist to the societies that don’t want those things, an insult to the cyclical nature of life and civilizations, and a terrible disrespect to the societies of our ancestors.
Scary stuff. There is one great documentary on Dugin, The Wolf in the Moonlight, which interviews the philosopher among the wind-swept steppe and smoky ceremonies of his homeland. Otherwise, most Western media coverage is hysterical and condemnatory, filled with labels endemic to our political paradigm, constantly questioning his relationship with Putin. (For what it’s worth, Dugin insists he has never served as Putin’s advisor, but Putin over the last two decades has followed Dugin’s blueprint to a tee.) Dugin’s interview with the BBC devolved into the interviewer insisting that unlike its global peers, Western media at least tries to tell the truth (and if you believe that, my friend, you are on the wrong website).
We here at Countere Magazine decided to take a different approach. We decided to let the man speak for himself, and to allow our readers to judge the merit of his philosophy. We asked Dugin about his visions of the future, if he thinks the West is doomed, and the forthcoming 24-volume collection he calls his magnum opus. He also gave us a message to the young people of America. Enjoy.
This interview has been edited for clarity.
In a harmonious multipolar world, is there a space for a liberal individualistic civilization like the West? Or do you believe liberalism destined to go into the trash heap of history, just like fascism and communism?
First of all, I think that the multipolar world should be regarded realistically. It is not a utopian concept. It is not some rose dream, people living peacefully and friendly, without any conflict or dispute. Multipolarity is just the shift of the main point of the global decisions from one side, the West, to multiple sides.
Multipolarity could have its own contradictions, conflicts, and oppositions, but they would be of another nature than having one hegemony in the West establishing modern day left-liberalism as a global order with absolute truths. Unipolarity is linked to this new left-liberalism, and everybody who challenges the values of LGBT, BLM, “progress,” “technology,” and “scientific development” is considered to be N
