Kevin McCarthy Threatens Biden’s DHS Secretary With Impeachment If He Doesn’t Resign

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatened President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas with impeachment Tuesday during a visit to the border in El Paso, Texas.

McCarthy, who is vying for the House speakership, said Republicans will push for Mayorkas’ impeachment if he refuses to step down. He was joined by several Republican colleagues, including Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales, who represents a southern border district, that made the trip to show support for Border Patrol.

“His actions have produced the greatest wave of illegal immigration in recorded history. Our country may never recover from Secretary Mayorkas’ dereliction of duty. This is why today I am calling on the secretary to resign. He cannot and must not remain in that position,” McCarthy said.

“If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action and every failure to determine whether we can begin an impeachment inquiry,” McCarthy said.

The Republican Study Committee was previously pushing for Mayorkas’ impeachment, but McCarthy argued that he “wants to make the case before we go for the jugular,” Axios reported in April.

Under Mayorkas’ leadership, federal border authorities have been overwhelmed by a surge in illegal immigration. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered a record of over 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022 and more than 230,000 at the start of fiscal year 2023.

Mayorkas, however, continues to insist that the southern border is “secure.” He most recently made the assertion during a House Homeland Security Committee on Nov. 15.

For months, Republican lawmakers have called on Mayorkas to resign for making the false claim.

“I’m not unhappy. I’m pissed. Secretary Mayorkas needs to resign: he’s incompetent,” South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told Martha MacCallum, host of Fox News’ “The Story,” in September, adding “The border is not closed. It’s been surrendered.”

“Secretary Mayorkas is proud to advance the noble mission of this Department, support its extraordinary workforce, and serve the American people. The Department will continue our work to enforce our laws and secure our border, while building a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system,” DHS said in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Members of Congress can do better than point the finger at someone else; they should come to the table and work on solutions for our broken system and outdated laws, which have not been overhauled in over 40 years,” the department added.

Tales From The Crypto

The spectacular collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange is not just a business story.  It’s a Washington swamp story and Republicans will be investigating it when they take control of the House in January.  At issue is whether “Individuals within the Democrat Party accepted money with knowledge of potential criminal activity occurring at FTX.”

High-flying FTX bought Super Bowl ads and sports facility naming rights.  It amassed a net worth of $32 billion to become one of the largest crypto exchanges in just three years with 28-year-old Sam Bankman-Fried at the helm. It lost half its worth in a matter of days when customers lost confidence and essentially started a run on the bank.  It was reported Bankman-Fried secretly siphoned off $10 billion in customer funds and transferred it to another trading firm he also owned, run by his girlfriend.   The trading firm invested in FTX’s crypto token, the financial roundtrip prompting investor concern.  FTX was left without sufficient assets to pay customers pulling their money out, and bankruptcy ensued.

FTX has been called a Ponzi scheme, but it sounds more like embezzlement and fraud.  News reports don’t talk about money from new investors being used to pay previous investors, as in a Ponzi scheme.  Instead, $1-2 billion simply vanished.  Some of it went into buying $121 million worth of property in the Bahamas, but a lot of it was going into buying influence in Washington.

FTX, Bankman-Fried, and other FTX top executives poured money into Democrat politicians and liberal causes – $28 million went to a Democrat pro-COVID lockdown PAC, and $4 million to a group called Reproductive Freedom for All.  Democrat politicians who benefitted include Senators Dick Durbin and Bob Menendez.  Bankman-Fried gave more than $5 million to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and was the second largest Democrat donor in the 2022 midterms.  Money also went to Republicans, but it’s common for corporations to make contributions on both sides of the aisle to hedge their bets in the influence game.  In all, an estimated $57 million went to Democrat candidates and groups and $22 million to Republican candidates and groups. [Steve Moore newsletter, 11/21/22]

Another Democrat politician who benefitted is Maxine Waters.  There are pictures of her and Bankman-Fried with their arms around each, smiling.  Another picture shows her blowing kisses to him.  And this is the woman who, as current chair of the House Financial Services Committee, will be holding hearings on FTX next month.  Moreover, nine members of the committee — seven Democrats and two Republicans — received more than a combined $300,000 in political contributions from Bankman-Fried and others at FTX.  It doesn’t take a genius to see the conflict of interest here.  It’s shaping up to be a whitewash, with the chair of the committee blowing kisses at the perp.

Meanwhile, critics are asking ‘what did the SEC know and when did it know it?’  It turns out the father of the girlfriend who ran the trading firm I mentioned earlier worked with Gary Gensler, chairman of the SEC, when both were professors at MIT.  Gensler, former campaign finance chair for Hillary Clinton, has been criticized for not seeing FTX was going off the rails.  A famous short seller who spotted trouble at Enron and other places, had been publicly warning FTX looked like a scam.  In addition, there are allegations Gensler was actively helping FTX find legal loopholes to escape regulation.

Bankman-Fried insists all the money he has been throwing around is completely innocent and not meant to influence lawmakers or regulators.  The House Republicans will be testing that assertion come January, and we’ll see just how innocent all of this really is.

Governments Are Using Drones to Spy on Americans. Here’s How People Are Fighting Back

Drone technology is making it easier than ever for governments to stick their nose where it doesn’t belong.


Americans have long been concerned about government surveillance, and rightly so. Being watched by the government is incredibly disconcerting, especially when government agents are probing into your private life.

The rise of drone technology has not helped on this front. Whereas before a government would need a plane or helicopter to get aerial views of you or your property, now they just need a small remote-controlled device.

The issue of governments spying on Americans using drones has come up in some recent court cases and legislative disputes. One recent case involves Todd and Heather Maxon who live on a rural five-acre property in Long Lake Township, Michigan. Todd likes to fix up cars, and he keeps a number of vehicles on his property.

For years the Township has been going after the couple for zoning violations, accusing them of illegally storing “junk” on their property. But here’s the kicker. The cars can’t even be seen from outside the property…that is, unless you fly a drone overhead. And that’s exactly what the Township did.

Without even attempting to get a warrant, the Township hired a contractor to fly a drone as low as 150 feet over the Maxons’ property multiple times over two years. The Township is now trying to use the pictures taken by the drone as evidence that the Maxons are violating a local zoning ordinance.

“If the government wants to conduct intrusive surveillance like this, the Fourth Amendment requires that it get a warrant,” said Institute for Justice Attorney Mike Greenberg regarding the case. “The zoning authority’s failure to even try to get one shows their indifference to Michiganders’ constitutional rights.”

New York City has also come in the crosshairs in recent years for its decisions on this front. In 2019, the New York Police Department acquired 14 drones for “monitoring giant crowds, investigating hazardous waste spills, handling hostage situations and reaching remote areas in crime scenes, among other tasks.” Though the NYPD insists the drones won’t be used for warrantless surveillance, many are worried that putting this technology in the hands of police is just asking for trouble.

Citing these fears, privacy advocates pushed for legislation known as the Public Oversight of Surveillance Technology Act (“POST Act”), which requires the NYPD to release information about how surveillance tools are being used and creates an annual oversight system to audit compliance with department policies. The Act was passed in June 2020 after gaining momentum following the death of George Floyd.

The legal issue with warrantless government surveillance revolves around the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution, which states the following:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

In plain language, governments aren’t allowed to conduct searches and seizures as they please. They need to get a warrant.

In the more than two centuries that have passed since this amendment was adopted in 1791, mountains of case law have built up establishing precedents for what exactly constitutes “unreasonable” and what qualifies as a “search” or “seizure.” Other related questions have also been extensively litigated, such as whether evidence collected in an unconstitutional search (such as pictures from a warrantless drone flight) can be used in court. On that issue, there is a long-standing precedent. “For more than a century, the remedy for a Fourth Amendment violation has been suppression of unlawfully obtained evidence,” the Institute for Justice notes.

Whether the Maxons win their case remains to be seen.

What’s clear, however, is that drone technology provides governments with unprecedented spying capabilities—capabilities they would gladly use against Americans if they could get away with it.

For many topics addressed in the Bill of Rights libertarians are firmly in favor of the right being recognized (for example, freedom of speech and gun rights). With the Fourth Amendment, however, there are some philosophical problems.

The economist and political philosopher Walter Block addresses the “right” to privacy in the Peeping Tom chapter of his book Defending the Undefendable 2. “According to the libertarian legal code,” Block writes, “we may do anything at all to each other, whether they like it or not, provided, only, that in so doing we not violate—not their privacy ‘rights’ which do not exist, but rather—their property rights in their own persons and justly owned physical possessions.”

As Block correctly points out, spying on people isn’t technically a rights violation from a libertarian perspective. Indeed, a “right” to privacy, consistently recognized, would lead to all sorts of absurd laws, such as banning detectives or prohibiting most journalism and gossip.

Should we let governments spy on us at will, then, and never push back through legal channels? Of course not. There is a sound philosophical case to be made against government surveillance—it just doesn’t rest on a supposed “right” to privacy.

The most fundamental point to be made in this regard from a libertarian framework is that government surveillance is funded by taxpayer dollars, which are taken coercively. This alone makes the practice immoral in the libertarian view.

It’s also worth pointing out that the purpose of government surveillance isn’t necessarily protecting people. Sometimes the government uses drones because it intends to force its laws on people (such as in the case of the Maxons and Long Lake Township’s zoning laws) in which case the government is using surveillance as a means to a liberty-violating end.

In such cases, libertarians will often make a tactical move. While we may disagree with the Fourth Amendment philosophically, holding the State to its stated laws on privacy is often a more effective way of defending people’s liberties (property rights) than appealing to philosophical ideals. Just saying “it’s their property, they have a right to use it as they please” may be a more philosophically sound rebuttal to zoning laws, but it’s not particularly effective in court.

If appealing to the Fourth Amendment is what will convince the powers that be to respect property rights, there’s nothing wrong with that. We just need to recognize that, for libertarians, such an appeal is merely a practical tactic—the philosophical argument against the government’s actions is rather different from the legal argument.

So that’s the argument against government drones, but what about private drones? Would libertopia have private drones flying everywhere, snooping on people constantly, seeing as libertarians don’t recognize a right to privacy? Of course not. Privacy is in high demand, so drones would almost certainly be regulated with voluntary contracts.

Responding to the Fourth Amendment at the end of his Peeping Tom chapter, Block summarizes the libertarian position on privacy as follows: “We have no such right. It is merely a privilege, one that, fortunately, the free market system can bestow upon us.”

Ninth Circuit Rules Election Integrity Project® California has Standing to Challenge Constitutionality of California’s Election Laws, Regulations and Procedures

The wheels of justice grind exceedingly slow. But they grind exceedingly fine.

The Ninth Circuit has ruled that Election Integrity Project® California (EIPCa) and recent and future congressional candidates have standing to challenge the Constitutionality of California’s election laws, regulations, policies and procedures that have weakened or removed integrity from the election process. Though the Constitution gives authority to state legislators to pass laws to manage elections and process ballots, EIPCa asserts they do not have carte blanche authority to pass laws that diminish the value of the lawfully cast ballots.

The decision remanded the lawsuit to the lower court for discovery, which is the next phase of the litigation.

Over the last decade California has passed laws, orders and regulations that have led to massive irregularities, culminating in the 2020 election, when Governor Newsom authorized mailing a ballot to all “active” registrants on the voter rolls and former Secretary of State Alex Padilla gutted signature verification requirements. EIPCa received over 700 affidavits signed under penalty of perjury from EIPCa-trained observers who consistently reported election workers not adequately verifying signatures and, in some cases, counting ballots without signatures.

Because neither the state legislature nor Alex Padilla required uniform and secure vote casting and counting procedures, uneven procedures were applied across counties. EIPCa and its co-plaintiffs filed this lawsuit against Governor Newsom, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, and thirteen country registrars.

“This lawsuit is monumental because it is the first to challenge the constitutionality of California’s election laws and procedures, and we are the first to get past standing,” says Mariah Gondeiro, the lead attorney who works for Advocates for Faith and Freedom. “If we win, California will be required to enforce secure and uniform vote casting and vote counting procedures.”

“For over a decade, Election Integrity Project® California has researched and documented every aspect of California’s election process and identified how these laws transformed an Election Day into a 60-day election season fraught with easy to manipulate procedures,” says Linda Paine, President of EIPCa. “We are now seeing California Style laws in states across the country creating the same problems that have been witnessed and documented by EIPCa-trained observers in California for years.”

Election Integrity Project®California, Inc. (“EIPCa”) is a California non-profit public benefit corporation committed to defending, through education, research, and advocacy the civil rights of U.S. citizens to fully participate in the election process under Federal and state law.

Ninth Circuit Rules Election Integrity Project California has Standing to Challenge Constitutionality of California’s Election Laws, Regulations and Procedures

By: Yahoo News, November 21, 2022:

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif., Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Ninth Circuit has ruled that Election Integrity Project® California (EIPCa), James Bradley (US Senate Candidate, Co Lead Plaintiff) and recent and future congressional candidates have standing to challenge the constitutionality of California’s election laws, regulations, policies and procedures that have weakened or removed integrity from the election process. Though the Constitution gives authority to state legislators to pass laws to manage elections and process ballots, EIPCa asserts they do not have carte blanche authority to pass laws that diminish the value of lawfully cast ballots.

Trump Special Counsel Targeted Conservatives for Prosecution in IRS Scandal

“Smith asked whether they could charge the groups with conspiracy to violate U.S. laws.”



What are the bona fides of the special counsel appointed to go after Trump? The ones you expect.

via J.E. Dyer.

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland announced today the appointment of former career Justice Department prosecutor and former chief prosecutor for the special court in The Hague, Jack Smith, to serve as Special Counsel to oversee two ongoing criminal investigations.

“Based on recent developments, including the former President’s announcement that he is a candidate for President in the next election, and the sitting President’s stated intention to be a candidate as well, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint a special counsel,” said Attorney General Garland. “Such an appointment underscores the Department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters. It also allows prosecutors and agents to continue their work expeditiously, and to make decisions indisputably guided only by the facts and the law.”

A special counsel was long overdue, but there was no way Garland was going to pick anyone except a loyal soldier to go after conservatives.

How loyal?

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee recently obtained an email addressed to former IRS official Lois Lerner sent from Election Crimes Branch Director Richard Pilger at the Justice Department. The email addressed to Lerner stated that, “I have been asked to run something by you.” During the Committee’s investigation, Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith told investigators that officials at the Justice Department discussed targeting conservative nonprofit groups with Lerner as early as October 2010.

Pilger says that Smith asked him to arrange a meeting with Lerner. Pilger further stated that the agenda for the meeting was to discuss how the IRS could be, “more vigilant to the opportunities from more crime in the . . . 501(c)(4) area.”

In their letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, the Committee said, “The Justice Department convened a meeting with former IRS official Lois Lerner in October 2010 to discuss how the IRS could assist in the criminal enforcement of campaign-finance laws against politically active nonprofits. This meeting was arranged at the direction of Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith.”

Public integrity indeed.

Who better to pick to go after conservatives than a guy with a track record of doing just that.

What we tend to forget is that the IRS scandal was much worse than the popular understanding of it. Beyond an attempt to block and shut down conservative nonprofits, it had roots in the DOJ and the FBI. It wasn’t just about denying tax-exempt status, but actively criminalizing and prosecuting political dissent.

In October of 2010, apparently without a court order, the IRS sent 21 computer disks containing 1.1 million pages of tax-return documents to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. According to the Justice Department, the massive data dump included public returns from non-profit groups but also taxpayer information that by law the IRS is required to keep confidential. Reps. Issa and Jordan ask in their letter for information relating to the preparation and transmittal of the data.

How did these documents wind up at the FBI? In September of 2010, IRS officials including Lois Lerner and Sarah Hall Ingram helped the New York Times prepare a story about non-profit policy groups which “heavily favored Republicans” in their purchases of issue advertising.

The day after the article appeared, Justice Department Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith noted the story in an email to colleagues and asked whether they could charge the groups with conspiracy to violate U.S. laws.

That’s where this is at.

Why is this happening? Because Smith still had his job after all this. And no good deed will go unforgiven.

ARIZONA: Maricopa County’s Election Dysfunction Was More Widespread Than Officials Said, Memo Claims

  • More Maricopa County voting centers saw tabulator or printer issues than officials had announced, according to a memo by an attorney who observed the election process.
  • “It seems very clear that the printer/tabulator failures on election day at 62.61% of the vote centers observed by 11 roving attorneys, and the resulting long lines at a majority of all vote centers, led to substantial voter suppression,” the memo said.
  • “It is certainly safe to assume that many voters refused to wait in such lines, left the vote center, and did not return to vote later,” the memo read. “A survey of the electorate could easily confirm such an assumption.”

Election day tabulator or printer issues affected more Maricopa County, Arizona, voting centers than authorities had previously claimed, according to a memo by an attorney who observed the voting process.

On Nov. 8, the day of the midterm elections, 11 of the roving attorneys tasked with observing election processes in the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) Election Integrity program in Arizona collectively visited nearly 52% of the county’s voting centers, according to a memo sent to party officials and candidates by roving attorney Mark Sonnenklar and obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The memo alleged that 72 of those 115 visited centers, or roughly 60%, saw “material problems with the tabulators not being able to tabulate ballots,” resulting in “substantial voter suppression.”

The findings of the memo would indicate that tabulation and printer problems at Maricopa County voting centers were more widespread than elections officials had previously claimed. Though the memo does not address whether tabulation and printer problems may have occurred at the Maricopa County voting centers that the attorneys did not visit, a significant number of those locations may have seen similar issues, given the large sample size of voting centers visited by the roving attorneys.

Sonnenklar wrote that the findings in the memo “directly contradict the statements of County election officials that (1) printer/tabulator issues were limited to only 70 of the 223 vote centers, (2) the printer/tabulator problems were resolved as of 3:00 p.m., and (3) the printer/tabulator issues were insignificant in the entire scheme of the election.”

Aggregated Roving Attorney Ge… by Daily Caller News Foundation

For instance, Maricopa County’s main Twitter account said Nov. 9 that an issue with printers had affected an estimated 17,000 ballots across 70 (about 31%) of the county’s 223 voting centers, with tabulators unable to read some ballots lacking dark enough timing marks.

“In many cases, the printer/tabulator issues persisted from the beginning of election day until the end of election day,” Sonnenklar wrote. “It seems very clear that the printer/tabulator failures on election day at 62.61% of the vote centers observed by 11 roving attorneys, and the resulting long lines at a majority of all vote centers, led to substantial voter suppression.”

Tabulators rejected ballots’ first insertion almost every time at many voting centers, and many ballots could not be machine-tabulated no matter how many attempts a voter made, Sonnenklar stated.

“The strong consensus regarding why the tabulators would not read certain ballots was that those ballots, in particular the barcodes on the side of the paper, were not printing dark enough for the tabulators to read them,” he wrote, claiming to have personally visited ten voting centers.

Material problems caused voters to either deposit their ballots into a box for later counting, spoil their ballots and re-vote, or “get frustrated” and leave without voting, the memo said. Many voters had to wait an hour or two to receive a ballot for voting, with the roving attorneys reporting “significant lines at 59 of the 115 vote centers” they collectively visited, it claimed.

The DCNF has not verified the claims in this memo, and the Maricopa County Elections Department did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

“It is certainly safe to assume that many voters refused to wait in such lines, left the vote center, and did not return to vote later,” Sonnenklar added. “A survey of the electorate could easily confirm such an assumption.”

Sonnenklar quoted the ten other roving attorneys in the memo, and five of them confirmed to the DCNF that they provided information to Sonnenklar that was included in the memo.

“Some of the issues I reported (in real time and later to Mark Sonnenklar) were based on the reports that I received from the Republican observers at the respective sites, except those which I specifically indicated that I witnessed myself,” Roie Bar, one of the roving attorneys and a Scottsdale-based lawyer, told the DCNF. “Each site only allows one observer from each party and all the locations I covered had Republican observers present all day (2 in each location, covering 2 shifts – morning and afternoon). I was in communication with the observers throughout the day and was receiving reports from them in real time.”

The memo quoted one roving attorney as reporting long lines at three of 15 voting sites they visited. Another reported that five of the nine centers they visited had long lines.

“To sum it up, it was a complete mess!” a third roving attorney said of observations they made, according to the memo. “There is no other way to put it.”

Sonnenklar was not the only legal professional to raise concerns over the voting process; Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright sent a Saturday letter describing reports of similar tabulation and printer issues.

“Due to the widespread problems in non-uniform printer configuration settings, many voters were unable to tabulate their ballots on Election Day using on-site tabulators. Instead, voters were instructed to deposit their ballot in ‘Door 3,’” Wright stated. “Maricopa County appears to have failed to adhere to the statutory guidelines in segregating, counting, tabulating, tallying, and transporting the ‘Door 3’ ballots.”

Despite the findings in the memo, Maricopa County election officials have attempted to characterize the voting issues as relatively minor and insubstantial.

“Nearly a million County residents voted early in the November General Election,” the county’s main Twitter account stated Friday. “On E-Day, most Vote Centers experienced no printer issues, most had wait times under 30 min. and @maricopavote gave voters the freedom to cast their ballot at any one of 223 locations.”

The DCNF obtained the memo from former Arizona Republican Party Chairman Randy Pullen.

“I worked at a polling location,” Pullen told the DCNF. “The tabulators were not working.”

Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake refused to concede Thursday after Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs was projected the winner in their race. Lake claimed “nearly half of all polling locations had problems with tabulating machines and printers,” forcing voters “to wait in line for hours.”

America’s Silence In The Face of Tyranny

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.” —  John Locke

“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) asserts that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press.” —  Thomas Jefferson

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.  It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.” —  Thomas Jefferson

“The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the Republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” —  George Washington


Americans were built with an inner strength, a strength that fought for independence and liberty for seven long years.  The end of conflict came only after British forces were removed from Charleston and Savannah in late 1782.  The future often looked bleak, but by the grace of God, the American patriots fought on and won.

Where is that inner strength today?  Have we lost it?  Have we grown too fat and lazy to even pay attention to the tyrannical moves of the federal and state governments?  I’m afraid this is the case, combined with the elimination of academic education replaced with Pavlovian dog training, Skinnerian conditioning and communist propaganda.

Our Constitution means nothing to the majority of people whose education failed to teach them our God given rights and freedoms, those very freedoms which blessed the birth of this once great nation.

Trampled Rights

The first amendment in our Bill of Rights grants five freedoms.  It protects speech, religion, press, assembly, and the right to petition the government. Together, these five guaranteed freedoms make the people of the United States of America the freest in the world.  However, over time, and especially during the C-19 years, these unalienable rights were sacrificed “for our safety” by our federal and state governments. Fear and subjugation went hand in hand to squelch any rebellion against the tyrants while those precious God given rights were trampled into dust.

The only protest we saw was the January 6th, 2020 Capitol Hill protest, and we all suspect/know the FBI was involved despite their denials. Those who were peacefully attending are now spending their lives in a dungeon of hell and the US Constitution’s protections are once again trampled to dust.  I’ll admit it was foolish to go into the Capitol, but the doors were opened to them and President Trump’s request for national guard presence was denied by Nancy Pelosi.

Compare January 6th 2020 to the recent runoff election in Brazil.  Over three million Brazilians protested election fraud and are still out every day protesting.  Bolsonaro’s Party has moved to annul the election since the results could not be validated.  The people know electoral fraud was committed by Communist convicted criminal Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Silent Republicans

All we heard from them were promises while they were running for office.  But no one has mentioned vote fraud other than those who, almost two weeks later, are still doing recounts.  Ever wonder why only Democrats succeed in winning the recounts or runoffs?  And they are the biggest election fraud deniers, along with their comrades in mainstream media.

Kari Lake, Arizona gubernatorial candidate, is still fighting the election fraud where she was ahead and after days of recounts, Katie Hobbs allegedly wins.

Hershel Walker, Georgia’s Republican Senatorial candidate is in a runoff on December 6th with Raphael Warnock.  It concerns me that those who are shilling for Hershel are not true patriots. Americans for Prosperity is a Koch organization. Then there’s Nikki Haley and she’s a World Economic Forum member. Former Speaker, Newt Gingrich who voted years ago for the UN gun grab, and several other folks most refer to as RINOs, want you to send Hershel more money.  This includes the RNC who won’t stop emailing or calling me.  I hope Hershel wins and he is not beholden to these people.

However, in Lawrence Sellin’s recent article, he exposes the Chinese connection in the Georgia runoff.  He writes, A November 15, 2022 article entitled “U.S. midterm elections:

Georgia’s “play-in” to determine the final Senate map – How Chinese can seize the critical moment,” published on the Chinese language website of the BBC, described how the Chinese in Georgia are organizing to defeat Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker in the upcoming run-off election.

According to that BBC article, Xiao Yu, who has helped several Chinese people run for office in Georgia and organized Chinese electioneering in the 2020 presidential election, is mobilizing Chinese to participate in the second round of the ballot in support of Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock.

So, the Chinese Communist Party is helping the Stalinist Democrats to win in Georgia, and probably many other states.

And we’re learning our overseas military are being deprived of their valid votes.

A shocking testimony reported by Gateway Pundit reveals democrats were stealing overseas and military ballots from Michigan, Georgia and now Arizona too.  The ballots were tampered with and all looked like Xerox copies. Proof doesn’t sway the fraud deniers.

George Soros, with the help of his Democrat Party comrades, has financed campaigns of left-wing district attorneys, and he succeeded in installing leftist prosecutors in major cities. Money was spread nationwide to Democrat Party candidates, and most won.

There are five representatives in the House who consistently vote with the Constitution, Andy Biggs, Thomas Massey, Paul Gosar, Al Rosendale and Chip Roy.  Those are the five members who have a freedom index of 100% every year.  There are several members with 97s and 93s, but they should all be 100% all the time.

In the Senate, Rand Paul (KY), and Mike Lee consistently receive 100%.  Senator Ron Johnson (WI) came close to losing his seat in this month’s election, but thankfully he won.  Blackburn and Hagerty in TN, Lummis in WY, Cruz in TX, and Braun in IN, all come in at the 93% level.  The rest are lower and many are at 0%, meaning they always vote against the document they took an oath to uphold.

Abridging States’ Rights

Twelve Republican Senators joined the Democrats and voted for the Respect for Marriage Act.  HR 8404, which passed the House of Representatives in July, “provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages,” repealing provisions that define marriage as between a man and a woman. Sens. Roy Blunt (MO), Richard Burr (NC) Shelley Capito (WV), Susan Collins (ME), Cynthia Lummis (WY), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT), Dan Sullivan (AK), Thom Tillis (NC), Joni Ernst (IA), Lisa Murkowski (AK), and Todd Young (IN).

“Make no mistake,” Alliance Defending Freedom President Kristen Waggoner warned, “this bill will be used by officials and activists to punish and ruin those who do not share the government’s view on marriage.”

Once again, marriage, abortion, slander and libel, and so many other federal grabs at legislation, belong only to the states. The federal government overstepped their bounds and trampled the Constitution they took an oath to defend.

Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution lays out the enumerated powers of the federal government.  The feds have overstepped their limited powers and forced them upon the states, time and again.  The 10th Amendment reads: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

Socialists and Communists

In 2019, Trevor Loudon supplied a list of socialists and communists in our Congress.  He believed then that about 100 members of the House would struggle to pass a low- level security test.  He named a number of them, all democrats, including Tulsi Gabbard.

While the Democrat Party has long exhibited Stalinist actions and overt tendencies, the Republican Party isn’t far behind.  Many Americans refer to Republicans as Republicans in Name Only (RINOs), but I would have to disagree. The majority of Republicans are very similar to their buddies across the aisle. Other than a handful of Constitutional Republicans, the rest do little to stop the onslaught of communism; we’ve seen that time and again.  So, what are they?  They’re slow Marxists, not full-blown Stalinists like the Democrats, but more like Leon Trotsky, a Russian Marxist revolutionary who believed that the slow implementation of Marxist doctrine would succeed in achieving the goal and the citizenry would accept it.

This is the reason so many of them fought against Donald Trump in 2016 and throughout his presidency, and most likely the reason they joined in election fraud denial when it was so very obvious that 2020 was outright skullduggery.

Trump 2024

Trump declares his candidacy for 2024.

President Trump, why bother running again? Vote fraud is now rampant! They’ll never let you win.  My friend Christine commented, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. It isn’t fair to Trump’s supporters or the rest of the country to continue this charade.”

Number one, we want an apology for Operation Warp Speed Death jabs, the millions of deaths and the adverse effects they have caused.  We want the enemies of freedom, who caused this evil, exposed and charged.  Their demand for amnesty should be met with two words, and it ain’t, “Let’s Dance.”

Secondly, if you believe that the election won’t be stolen after the last three were stolen, (yes, 2018 was stolen too, and you know about 2020 and 2022) you are full of hot air and that’s being kind.  We all know it, why don’t you?  Unless our elections go back to one vote for one man, we are finished.  You won’t make any difference to them; they’ll destroy you from both sides of the aisle and steal the votes for other republicans as well.

Why don’t you spend two years and work with good people to help change the laws back to what our founders intended (one man, one vote) instead of the obvious cheating we’ve seen over and over again that no one does anything about. Then you’d help the country regain her righteousness.

Do you hear our people?

I did not support Kari Lake, but hoped she’d win against Hobbs, obviously vote fraud is still rampant across the country, and especially in Arizona’s Maricopa County.

Few protested over Covid, most donned the masks, stayed in their houses, lost their businesses while big box stores gained trillions.

No one complained when communists from Antifa and BLM torched and destroyed cities and federal buildings to the tune of billions in damages. And the Insurrection Act was never used because you, President Trump, listened to your Deep State advisors.

No one complained about the 2018 election fraud when republicans went to bed believing they’d won and days or weeks later, after recounts, they lost.

No one complained about the massive 2020 election fraud, and nothing was done.

Now, no one is complaining about the theft of another election in 2022.

Fix it first!  Don’t put us through this insanity again!

Nancy Pelosi is Out

By a very small majority, the Republicans regained the House.  However, so many of them are left of center, I don’t believe it will make much difference.

As for Kevin McCarthy, he should never become Speaker of the House.  He used FTX cash to defeat conservatives in 2022.  He funded a “secretive,” anti-MAGA campaign within the GOP to protect his establishment speaker ambitions.

Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is the former House Freedom Caucus Chairman, and he’s not so certain that McCarthy is the right man for the job.

Biggs believes that McCarthy may not be a strong enough candidate for the party, “He’s back-pedaled on things like impeachment. In some ways, that indicates a willingness to be weakening the oversight authority that we need to have, and the leverage points we need to have in order to deal with a Democrat president.”

I hope Congressman Biggs launches a challenge against McCarthy and wins.

It’s about time we had a true patriot leading the House.

Worthless Dollars

We’ve called the two parties the uni-party for a long time, and for good reason.

More money is now wanted for the fascists in Ukraine, while our own country is circling the drain and inflation has skyrocketed.  How much confidence do you have that republicans will vote it down?

The White House is asking Congress for $37.7 Billion in new Ukraine aid which would bring total US spending on the war to about $105 billion.

Then they’ll want money for Taiwan. The printing presses are spewing out more and more worthless dollars as American’s suffer higher and higher prices.  And who is getting rich off it?  Ponzi scheme!

Mac Slavo writes that the US is going to attempt to quickly arm Taiwan as the “China Threat” grows.  But with Biden in the back pocket of Xi Jinping, who knows.

Conclusion

Where are my fellow Americans?  Crickets!  Time to take lessons from Brazil.

Our citizens don’t write, call or email their reps.  And if those reps don’t hear any noise from the people, they’ll keep doing what makes them rich and to hell with the unwashed masses who just want to be left alone.

Our founders paid dearly for our nation’s independence.  What are we willing to do to save her?

Biden is Building Back a Better Super Highway to Serfdom

“What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.” — J. C. F. Hölderlin, German poet philosopher.


It is now clear that the intent of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is to take America down a super highway to serfdom.

In 1944 F. A. Hayek in his seminal work The Road to Serfdom wrote,

Only under the influence of the strong democratic currents preceding the revolution of 1848 did socialism begin to ally itself with the forces of freedom. But it took the new “democratic socialism” a long time to live down the suspicions aroused by its antecedents. Nobody saw more clearly than de Tocqueville that democracy as an essentially individualist institution stood in an irreconcilable conflict with socialism:

Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom [he said in 1848], socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.’

Biden’s Super Highway to Serfdom

Biden ran as a moderate in 2020 but his long record in the U.S. Congress and his policies since his inauguration have been anything but moderate. Biden and the Democrat Party seek equality in restraint and servitude. They’re diversity, inclusion and equity mantra is neither diverse, inclusive or equal. His policies are designed to give absolute power to a centralized government at the cost of the loss of individual liberty and freedom.

Today America now has only two parties: U.S. Patriots vs Them—the ‘them’ being subhuman ‘abort them all’ Democrats!

 recently wrote,

Today’s Woke Left are the new Puritans. They do not seek to liberate our minds from habit, or challenge us to innovation, but to enslave us in new doctrines far more rigid than anything earlier generations of Americans could conceive, from redefining biological sex to re-engineering freedom itself.

They have already held dress rehearsals of their Salem Witch Trials: the Mueller hoax, two impeachment fantasies, and the phantasmagoric January 6 inquisition. Now they want to put all of us on trial.

Democrats have set themselves up as the defenders of “Democracy” in a nation that was founded and remains a Constitutional Republic. They continue on their quest to fundamentally transform America from a free society into a society based upon dependency.

James Woods put this movement toward restraint and servitude succinctly in this tweet:

The Us v Them mentality of the Dems, the “them” being subhuman “abort them all”!

According to the president of the United States:

“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace, embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”

So-called ‘presidential historian’ Michael Beschloss went even further: “We’re on the edge of a brutal authoritarian system.”

If Republicans win on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022, Beschloss said, “our children will be sentenced to death and put in prison.”

 warns,

It’s too easy to say that Biden and the others have lost their minds. They believe every word of it. Even a red tsunami on Tuesday will not cure them of their conviction that they alone stand up for truth, and that their opponents are the embodiment of evil.

Because they are convinced they have definitively won the battle for the soul of America, the Woke Left is now treating their political enemies as a vanquished population — to be slowly starved, silenced, and banned from social intercourse.

They are telling this to their supporters every day: they are evil, they are corrupt, they want to destroy America, destroy democracy. 

The Woke Left sees us as players in the Hunger Games. 

Today they, the Democrat Party, sound eerily like INGSOC the political party in Orwell’s’ 1984. The INGSOC slogans are:

  • Big Brother is Watching You, e.g. FBI using social media, including Facebook, to track Biden’s political opponents.
  • War is Peace, e.g. Ukraine, tensions between China and Taiwan, Iran and their internal cultural revolution and the abandoning of Afghanistan leaving behind billions in U.S. military equipment now being used by the Taliban.
  • Freedom is Slavery, e.g. Making American Great requires individual freedom and liberty, which is evil.
  • Ignorance is Strength, e.g. the dumbing down academically of our public schools, colleges and universities to implement the Democrat agenda of diversity, inclusion and equity.
  • Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past, e.g. Critical Race Theory, the renaming of anything and everything connected to our Founding Fathers and the Civil War in order to reshape history.

The Bottom Line

The choices in 2024 are now crystal clear:

  • No inflation, or rampant inflation under Democrats.
  • Secure borders, or open borders under Democrats.
  • Growth and prosperity, or dependence and poverty under Democrats.
  • A nation in Ascent, or a nation in Decline under Democrats.
  • Energy independence, or energy poor under Democrats.
  • Peace, or constant war under Democrats.
  • Law and order, or rampant crime under Democrats.
  • Low taxes, or more taxes under Democrats.
  • Less federal spending, or more federal spending under Democrats.
  • Pro-parent, or parents as domestic terrorists under Democrats.
  • Less federal debt, or unending federal debt under Democrats.
  • Fewer regulations, or more regulations under Democrats.
  • America first, or America last under Democrats.
  • Defend the police, or defund the police under Democrats.
  • American families first, or American families last under Democrats.
  • Alpha males and females, or beta males and females under Democrats.
  • Honesty and openness, versus corruption under Democrats.
  • Protecting innocent girls and boys, or rampant human trafficking by Democrats.
  • Drug free American, or drug addicted America under Democrats.
  • Peace in the Middle East, the Abraham Accords, or violence and war in the Middle East.
  • Freedom, or slavery under Democrats.
  • Pro-life, or pro-death of the unborn under Democrats.
  • Economic security, or economic dependency on other under Democrats.
  • Military strength, or military weakness under Democrats.
  • Marriage between one man and one women, or marriage defined as anything and everything under Democrats.
  • Happiness, or human pain and suffering under Democrats.
  • Conservationism, or radical environmentalism under Democrats.
  • Faith, family and liberty, or godlessness, destruction of the traditional family and tyranny under the Democrats
  • A Constitutional Republic, or Communism under Democrats.
  • Free and fair elections, or cheating and stealing under Democrats
  • God loving, or God and Godliness under attack by the Democrats.

MAGA and Donald J. Trump will go down in history as being the party of U.S. Patriots.

It is important to remember what Donald J. Trump said at his inaugural address,

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government, while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs, and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes, starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment — it belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today, and everyone watching, all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration, and this, the United States of America, is your country.

[ … ]

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public, but for too many of our citizens a different reality exists. Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories, scattered like tombstones across the across the landscape of our nation, an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge, and the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

This says it all. Power to the people.

UPDATE: Arizona GOP Gubernatorial Favorite Kari Lake REFUSES TO CONCEDE, Hires Lawyers to Contest Result

UPDATE: BREAKING: The Elections Integrity Unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office has officially demanded a response from Maricopa County “pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County.”


The Epoch Times is reporting:

Arizona Republican candidate Kari Lake said on Nov. 17 that she’s still fighting in the state governor’s race, in her first major update since Democrat Katie Hobbs declared victory.

“I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I am still in this fight with you,” Lake, a former television anchor, said in a video statement.

Lake said concerns raised by her campaign about Hobbs, the Arizona secretary of state, overseeing the election and electronic voting equipment turned out to be legitimate. As an example, she pointed to how tabulators across Maricopa County weren’t working properly on Election Day.

Lake said that she spoke with voters who had to wait in line for hours, including a man who went to three different polling sites before he was able to finally cast his ballot.

“Our election officials failed us miserably. What happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable. Tens of thousands of Maricopa County voters were disenfranchised,” Lake said. As secretary of state, Hobbs is the state’s top election official.

“Now I’m busy here collecting evidence and data. Rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team. And we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week. I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs. My resolve to fight for you is higher than ever.”

Hobbs declared victory on Nov. 14, after outlets including The Associated Press called the race for her.

The only statement Lake issued was a terse, one-liner on Twitter that said, “Arizonans know [expletive] when they see it.”

Since then, updated vote counts have seen Lake cut into the lead Hobbs still holds.

The current margin between the two candidates is 0.6 percent. If it ultimately ends up at 0.5 percent or less, an automatic recount will trigger. Thousands of votes still need to be counted, including more than 16,800 in Maricopa County.

Hobbs’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment regarding Lake’s new video.

“I am honored to stand before you as Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs,” she said at what her campaign called a victory rally on Nov. 15.

Lake and Hobbs are vying to succeed Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican who has been in office for two terms. State law prohibited him from running for reelection.

Former Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, “These Arizona voter stories are brutal.”

This is the very definition of voter suppression.

VIDEO: San Francisco DA Won’t Release Details of Paul Pelosi Assault

An attack on the spouse of the Speaker of the House is of considerable interest, but the San Francisco district attorney refused to provide documents and video of the police activity at the home of Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s husband, where David Wayne DePape was arrested following an alleged assault on October 28, 2022.

Among the items District Attorney Brooke Jenkins refused to release are a recording of Paul Pelosi’s 911 call and police officers’ body camera footage. Nikki Moore, assistant district attorney, took the unusual step of providing some details about the incident response to our California Public Records Act request:

The two persons present at the Pelosi home when the SFPD arrived where [sic] Mr. Pelosi and Mr. DePape. Please see the online posted document that reflects that Mr. Pelosi was the only person in the home at the time of the attack. See https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/11/01/us/david-de-pape-motion-to-detain.html. You can obtain an official copy of this court record from the Superior Court.

In our November 2022 request to the district attorney, we noted a news report stating that news organizations had been rebuffed on similar requests and, pursuant to the California Public Records Act, we asked for, in addition to the recording and camera footage: All records of communications, including emails and text messages, between the District Attorney’s Office and the San Francisco Police Department concerning the incident. We also asked for communications with several federal agencies, including the Justice Department, the Capitol Police, and the FBI. And we asked for the identities of the persons at the Pelosi home at the time of the incident.

In declining the information we requested, Assistant DA Moore cited Section 6254 of California law, which governs records requests, and specifically subsection (f), which allows for the withholding from the public of certain “records of investigations conducted by the Office of the Attorney General and the Department of Justice, the Office of Emergency Services and any state or local police agency …”

There is significant public interest in the terrible attack on Paul Pelosi and it is odd that the local authorities are withholding basic information about the incident.

In our previous work, in September, we received records from the California Highway Patrol Public Records Unit that included 44 photos and five hours of audio/video footage depicting the misconduct and arrest of Paul Pelosi. The material shows that Mr. Pelosi invoked his wife’s name and shared his police charity membership during the arrest for suspected alcohol intoxication while driving.

Here Are Democrats Who Got FTX Millions

Over 92% of the 44 million dollars FTX went to Democrats, the few Republican recipients were Never Tumpers – Democrats in GOP clothing.

Bankman-Fried and another FTX executive gave the vast majority of donations received by a group that gave exclusively to Democrats

By Thomas Catenacci, FOX Business, November 2022:

Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, was a major contributor to Democratic candidates during the midterm election cycle, funneling most of his donations through a little-known political action committee (PAC).

Overall, in 2021 and 2022, Bankman-Fried donated approximately $38 million to various candidates and PACs, mainly giving his cash to Democratic candidates and left-wing groups, according to Federal Election Commission filings (FEC). The majority of his political givings, though, went to the Protect Our Future PAC, a group founded in January that is dedicated to boosting candidates committed to preventing future pandemics.

“Our country’s leaders failed to prepare for a pandemic experts warned for years was possible, and the result was more than a million preventable American deaths, trillions of dollars in economic damage, school closures, loss of freedoms, and untold suffering,” the PAC states on its website

“Our candidates are committed to safeguarding our nation from future global pandemics, so this is the last time in our lifetime, and our children’s lifetimes, that we will face the devastation that has gripped communities across the U.S. since 2020,” it continued.

[ … ]

Bankman-Fried’s contributions accounted for roughly 95% of the roughly $28.5 million raised by the PAC. The only other major contributor to the PAC was Nishad Singh — Bankman-Fried’s business partner and top FTX executive — who gave $1 million to the group the same day Bankman-Fried wired his initial contribution in February.

While Protect Our Future PAC appears to be a bipartisan group based on its website, it exclusively supported Democratic campaigns in the run-up to the election.

The group supported Carrick Flynn, who ran to represent Oregon’s 6th Congressional District, far more than any other candidate, giving about $10.5 million to his campaign. However, Flynn was defeated by fellow Democrat Andrea Salinas in the state’s May primary. Salinas beat her Republican challenger last week.

The PAC also gave $1.1 million to Adam Hollier of Michigan and Josh Lafazan of New York, two other Democratic candidates that failed to make it out of their respective primaries.

In addition, Protect Our Future PAC pushed more than $1 million to Reps. Lucy McBath of Georgia and Shontel Brown of Ohio as well as Reps.-elect Jasmine Crockett of Texas, Valerie Foushee of North Carolina and Robert Garcia of California.

Other recipients of the PAC’s donations included Rep. Jesus Garcia, D-Ill., and Reps.-elect Morgan McGarvey of Kentucky, Maxwell Frost of Florida, Sydney Kamlager of California, Jonathan Jackson of Illinois, Nikki Budzinski of Illinois, Jared Moskowitz of Florida, Rob Menendez Jr. of New Jersey. The candidates received between $200,000 and $972,000 from the PAC.

How to Cheat in the Next Election

It’s amazing how many ways Democrats have come up with to cheat in elections.

Ballot harvesters were caught on video stuffing drop boxes with stacks of ballots in Arizona, where ballot harvesting is illegal.  It’s legal in Pennsylvania where Democrat election officials voted to allow harvesting of a hundred votes at a time in nursing homes.  It may be legal, but I still call it cheating because Democrats have a long history of committing voter fraud in nursing homes where many residents are no longer compos mentis.

One reason ballot harvesting is a bad idea is that it allows cheaters to pay people for their votes.  A Texas man admitted a Democrat nominee paid him $200 for every fraudulent absentee ballot he could deliver in the 2016 election.

A Democrat poll worker in Indiana told voters how to vote and even pressed “straight Democrat” on a machine for one of them.

A group of unidentified men in black threw an independent poll challenger out of the big voting center in Detroit in the August primary for asking why a voting machine was apparently connected to the Internet.  A court subsequently ruled the Secretary of State did not have authority to issue rules to allow poll challengers to be thrown out for asking too many questions.

Elections officials in St. Louis told volunteer poll workers not to enforce the state’s new photo ID law.

So excuse me for not taking Democrat election ‘reforms’ – so-called – at face value.  The only reason Democrats want mail-in voting and refuse to clean the voter rolls is so they can cheat.

Voting by mail is a mess.  Some ballots end up on the ground, others are sent to vacant lots.  The number returned as undeliverable can run into the tens of thousands in any given county.

Because Democrats refuse to clean the voter rolls in many areas, ballots are sent to dead voters, people are sent duplicate ballots, and ballots are mailed to people who have moved away.  Pennsylvania sent 240,000 ballots to voters for the 2022 election without verifying their identity.  Michigan had 26,000 dead voters on the rolls last year.  Minnesota had over 500 duplicates.

Why does it matter?  Because you have to have dirty voter rolls to cheat.  First, you have to grab a bunch of ballots floating around from mail-in voting, for example.  But then you have to match up your fraudulently cast ballots with records of voters still on the rolls who are not going to vote this time, like dead people.  You can’t do that very easily if the voter rolls are cleaned up.

Among other efforts to clean up voter rolls, there is a team working to identify phantom names and incorrect addresses on the rolls in Wisconsin and about 20 other states.  This team is using fractal programming technology which starts with small batches but can be scaled up to millions of records quickly and inexpensively.  The team will eventually be working in all 50 states.

It’s citizen-led efforts like this that will make cheating much harder and restore confidence in our elections, once again.

Kari Lake Calls For Election Do-Over After 70 Voting Machines Failed in Maricopa Count

Arizona elections were conducted like something out of Woody Allen’s banana republic spoof, “Bananas”. But this is real world America and the implications of the Democrat corruption of our elections are catastrophic.

Excerpt:

Article two, section twenty one of the Arizona Constitution states, “All elections shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.” It is a fact that over seventy voting locations in Maricopa County had issues with ballot tabulator machines not being able to read voters ballots.

In addition, there were also reports of printers having configuration issues, and even ink settings being improperly set rendering ballots unreadable. All of these issues, whether purposeful or not violate Article two, Section twenty one’s first sentence which states, “all elections shall be free and equal.” Having over seventy locations, which is roughly thirty percent of all of Maricopa Counties voting centers compromised, not working, or inoperable violates the Arizona Constitution. This election was not “fair or equal” in access to voting rights and these damages were indeed outcome determinative.

What happened on Election Day in Maricopa County was a violation of voters Equal Protection rights, their First Amendment rights, and their voting rights.

Moreover, Maricopa County Election Officials lied to voters when they instructed them to “check out” and “check back in” at another polling location to vote. Nowhere in the Arizona Elections manual does it say this is an option or a solution. In fact, once someone “checks in” whether they voted or not they can’t leave and go to another polling location because it would be considered “double voting” as there is no way to determine if the voter didn’t vote at two different polling locations. For this reason alone, this Election should be annulled and redone.

If this was not bad enough, it has been revealed that the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Bill Gates, along with the Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer started a Political Action Committee (PAC) on November seventeenth of 2021 called “The Pro Democracy Republicans of Arizona” which was designed specifically to recruit, train, and run candidates that do not question the validity of the previous election in 2020. This is a huge conflict of interest at the least and shows a clear bias against all candidates that hold an opposing view. Imagine that, those tasked with conducting free and fair non biased elections were overseeing the election of candidates whom they publicly disapproved of and active sought to defeat?

So how do we fix this and get a new election?

When it comes to election cases, most judges shy away from them because they don’t want to be seen as meddlesome or subject themselves to being the person who decides elections. This is why they rarely get involved in these types of cases. Typically judges will refuse to take the case or dismissed it on the grounds that those filing the case do not have “legal standing” to do so. Even when there is ample amounts of evidence of malfeasance or fraud, as was the case in many of the lawsuits filed in 2020, most judges just simply refused to even see the evidence. If these campaigns decide to file lawsuits, which they most certainly should do, they need to get past the “standing” objection that President Trump and his legal team in 2020 had difficulty doing. Hopefully these campaigns have learned the lessons of 2020 but if not here is EXACTLY how to do it.

The key to post election litigation must be argued based on violation of laws, violation of rights, and violation of equal protections under those laws. The way to do this is through signed affidavits from at least 30,000 voters in Maricopa County. The amount of signed affidavits (under penalty of perjury) must exceed the unofficial margin of victory in each race contested. Without these affidavits from the voters who had their rights violated, judges will not be able to see the full impact of what occurred on Election Day. These affidavits must be filled out immediately and must be complete with full descriptions of what voters experienced, coupled with screen shots, images, videos, witnesses, etc. Time is of the essence here and we only get one crack at this so we better make it count. If you are a voter in Maricopa County and you experienced difficulty voting, we NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU NOW. Don’t wait or hesitate because it could be too late. Please go to www.saveaznow.com and file your affidavit today!!!

Please note, all affidavits must also be notarized so that are official and will hold up in a court of law.

Kari Lake calls for a do-over election after 70 voting machines failed in Maricopa Count

BY: American Military News, TPG, November 17, 2022:

Republican candidate Kari Lake is calling for a partial do-over in Arizona’s governor election. It’s the most high-profile dispute yet to emerge in a midterm cycle that handed defeats to Lake and other candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

Lake’s race was called in favor of her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs on Monday. Hobbs’ victory was narrow: with 98 percent of votes counted on Thursday, she leads Lake by only 17,200 votes, according to NBC News.

While no formal challenge to the election has been made yet, the Lake campaign has pointed to tabulation machines that malfunctioned on Election Day across Maricopa County – where most of Arizona’s population lives – as evidence that Republican voters were disenfranchised.

“Imagine if the tabulators had worked in primarily red districts!” Lake’s campaign tweeted Wednesday, adding that the election had been “irreparably compromised.” “The appropriate thing to do would be to let Maricopa County cast their votes again.”

The problem stemmed from too-light printer ink and affected 70 of 223 polling places in the county, with no particular bias against Republican-leaning precincts, according to a Washington Post analysis. But the problem took voters’ time and drew suspicion, as they were asked to leave their unreadable ballots so they could be counted elsewhere.

The campaign has continued questioning the election results, retweeting videos that appear to show glitching tabulation machines and comments alleging political interference.

FBI Director Refuses To Answer Whether Agency Had Sources ‘Dressed As Trump Supporters’ In J6 Riots

by Trevor Schakohl, Daily Caller, November 15, 2022:

FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to answer multiple questions Tuesday from a Republican congressman concerning whether FBI sources were embedded among Jan. 6 protesters during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Worldwide Threats to the Homeland.

Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins asked Wray at the hearing if the FBI had “confidential human sources embedded within the Jan. 6 protesters” that day. Wray said he had to “be very careful about when we do and do not and where we have and have not used” such sources, “categorically” denying that bureau sources or employees “instigated or orchestrated Jan. 6.”…

“Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol on Jan. 6 prior to the doors being opened?” Higgins subsequently questioned. Wray began to repeat that he needed to be “very careful,” but the congressman loudly insisted, “It should be a no! Can you not tell the American people no?”

The FBI director urged Higgins not to “read anything into” his choice not to divulge information about informants, with committee Chairman Bennie Thompson cutting off the exchange for time.
