GOP Chair: Election Shouldn’t Have Been Certified If Maricopa County Election Routers Were Shared With Law Enforcement

The fix was in.

GOP Chair Kelli Ward: Election Shouldn’t Have Been Certified If Maricopa County Election Routers Were Shared With Law Enforcement

By: Conservative Brief, May 11, 2021:

The Maricopa County, Arizona, recount and audit of the 2020 presidential election is ongoing, but there has been a new plot twist.

Arizona GOP Chair Dr. Kelli Ward delivered a major update on Monday night and explained what she called “the big router lie” by the Maricopa County officials.

Maricopa County had 2.1 million votes in 2020 and therefore required a large system to handle the routers for the election.

Maricopa County insisted last week they could turn over the routers because they are shared with law enforcement.

Ward explained that if an election is to be certified, its routers should not and could not be shared with law enforcement.

WATCH:

Democrats are very worried about the election audit taking place in Arizona.

The Biden Department of Justice has sent a letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann taking issue with Maricopa County’s forensic audit of the 2020 election.

The letter is from Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division.

Karlan writes to Fann that the DOJ is taking issue with two main parts of the forensic audit:

“I write regarding issues arising under federal statutes enforced by the United States Department of Justice that are related to the audit required by the Arizona State Senate for the November 2020 federal general election in Maricopa County,” the letter states. “News reports indicate that the Senate subpoenaed ballots, elections systems, and election materials from Maricopa County and required that they be turned over to private contractors, led by a firm known as Cyber Ninjas.”

“The Department has reviewed available information, including news reports and complaints regarding the procedures being used for this audit,” the letter continued. “The information of which we are aware raises concerns regarding at least two issues of potential non-compliance with federal laws enforced by the Department.”

“The first issue relates to a number of reports suggesting that the ballots, elections systems, and election materials that are the subject of the Maricopa County audit are no longer under the ultimate control of state and local elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed,” the letter added.

“Federal law creates a duty to safeguard and preserve federal election records,” the DOJ letter went on. “The Department is charged with enforcement of provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1960. This statute requires state and local election officials to maintain, for twenty-two months after the conduct of an election for federal office, “all records and papers” relating to any “act requisite to voting in such election…”

“The purpose of these federal preservation and retention requirements for elections records is to ‘secure a more effective protection of the right to vote,’” the DOJ continued.

“The second issue relates to the Cyber Ninjas’ statement of work for this audit,” the DOJ went on. “Among other things, the statement of work indicates that the contractor has been working ‘with a number of individuals to ‘identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the stated address.”

“The statement of work also indicates that the contractor will ‘select a minimum of three precincts” in Maricopa County ‘with a high number of anomalies’ in order ‘to conduct an audit of voting history’ and that voters may be contacted through a ‘combination of phone calls and physical canvassing’ to ‘collect information of whether the individual voted in the election’ in November 2020,” the DOJ letter added.

Maricopa County has started the audit of 2.1 million ballots.

Ask yourself why Biden’s DOJ is getting involved in the matter.

CAIR Calls on Biden to Appoint a Special Squad to Monitor and Combat so-called Islamophobia, Enforce Sharia

Barenakedislam.com reports:  As ‘anti-Islamization’ policies by Western governments are on the rise, U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations calls on Joe Biden to  appoint  a special envoy to monitor and combat so-called ‘Islamophobia.’

According to Robert Spencer of Jihad Watchshould the USCMO succeed in its goal to see a special envoy to “monitor and combat Islamophobia” in America, the  systematic  hunting   down  and  cancelling  of organizations, websites, and individuals who criticize or offend Islam would be in order.

CAIR published a report that alleges 6,000+ Muslim Civil Rights Complaints were filed in 2020 just in time for its lobbying of  Joe  Biden  to  create  a  squad to crush Christians, Jews  and Infidels  at  large  who  dare criticize the barbarism, inhumanity and incivility of certain edicts and fatwas of Islam.

The  news  releases posted at CAIR.com call into question the credibility of 6000 Muslim complaints.   Only 7 out of the first 100 news release posts as of April 30, 2021 at CAIR.com involved alleged Muslim civil rights complaints.  If there were 6000+ American Muslim civil rights complaints filed with CAIR why are there so few reported on its website with less than 10 percent of CAIR.com news releases reporting such cases?

CAIR.com//press-releases/ published more reports about “systemic racism,” “white supremacist,” Native Americans,  Sikh  community,  Asians  and   bogus defense of some Jews than it reported about Muslim civil rights complaints.   Florida Family Association does not consider valid concerns expressed by elected officials regarding CAIR and Rep. Ilhan Omar to be legitimate civil rights complaints.

One could easily conclude from reading CAIR.com//press-releases/  that  there was truly an absence of discrimination against Muslims in 2020 and that CAIR  was jumping on the band wagon of more popular causes perhaps with the hope of building an alliance with these other groups.

Such  an  envoy  or anti-Islamophobe Squad fails constitutionally   at   the   start   by   giving Islam preferential treatment over other religions.  Officials in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) were  giving  the  Council  on  American   Islamic Relations  (CAIR)  unconstitutional  preferential treatment in an anti-bullying program. The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) filed a lawsuit in 2017.  FCDF sued the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) on behalf of several area parents and  two  interest  groups.  It asked the court for a preliminary injunction forcing the school district to stop working with CAIR, arguing that working with a religious organization violated the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause.   The (liberal, leftist) San Diego Unified School District settled the case in a manner     which    effectively    gutted    CAIR’s anti-Islamophobe Squad in the district’s schools.

Creating a squad to enforce the Sharia law edict that prohibits truthful criticism  of  Islam  would  violate   the   First Amendment,   Establishment   Clause   and  equal protection    of    the    law.       Many   people  and organizations, including other religions, rightfully educate  others and express concern regarding the barbarism, inhumanity and incivility of certain edicts and fatwas of Islam.  No one religion should be given special treatment by government tasking a special squad  to  enforce  the  religious  laws  of  that one religion to censor truthful criticism.

Florida Family Association has prepared a message below that you can post into the White House Contact form https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/.  Please consider rewriting it in your own words.

Dear President Biden,  I have learned that CAIR is urging you to appoint a special envoy to monitor and combat so-called Islamophobia.  Creating a squad to enforce the Sharia law edict that prohibits truthful criticism  of  Islam  would  violate   the   First Amendment,   Establishment   Clause   and  equal protection    of    the    law.       Many   people  and organizations, including other religions, rightfully educate  others and express concern regarding the barbarism, inhumanity and incivility of certain edicts and fatwas of Islam.  No one religion should be given special treatment by government tasking a special squad  to  enforce  the  religious  laws  of  that one religion to censor truthful criticism.

MICHIGAN: Muslim Accused of Waging Jihad for the Islamic State Threatens to Murder his Attorneys

“I swear to God, one must not live in America because there is so much wickedness.”

Hey, here’s an idea: get out.

Dearborn Man Accused Of ISIS Ties Threatened To Kill His Lawyer If Freed On Bond

by Allan Lengel, Deadline Detroit, May 8, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A legal team is fighting to get bond for a Dearborn man accused of being an ISIS soldier who hates America. However, the man has threatened to kill his lawyer as soon as he’s released, according to a government court filing.

U.S. District Judge David Lawson in Detroit will decide the bond issue Monday for Ibraheem Musaibli, 30, held in the Livingston County Jail on charges linked to the Islamic extremist group. A trial is set for October….

Musaibli was arrested on the Syrian battlefield in 2018 and subsequently indicted on allegations of knowingly providing and attempting to provide material support to ISIS. He was detained by Syrian Democratic Forces and was transferred to U.S. custody in July 2018.

He has been in federal custody nearly three years. His attorneys say he’s harassed in jail because he’s Muslim. He’s in isolation.

“Musaibli’s continued disdain for America coupled with his repeated demands to be sent to Yemen make him both a flight risk and a danger to the community. Musaibli’s motion for bond should therefore be denied,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office argued in an April 22 filing.

Musaibli was born in Michigan, but spent considerable time in Yemen, his parents’ birthplace, the court document states. He left the U.S. in 2015 and spent a few months in Yemen before sneaking into Syria to join ISIS. He trained with the organization and eventually fought in combat, the government alleges.

In a July 2016 conversation with his cousin, he called America “immoral,” and said: “I swear to God, one must not live in America because there is so much wickedness.” He then said about his parents, who live in Dearborn: “They are mad at me because I always tell them to get out of the country of the infidels as the Prophet had advised.”…

Further more, the government wrote:

Musaibli expresses that he wants to be imprisoned in an Arab country rather than “this infidel country.” Finally, over a discovery issue, Musaibli claimed that “as soon as he is out he will kill [his] attorney.

His attorneys, John Shea and James Gerometta, write in a motion filed last week that Musaibli denies being an ISIS member. He’s not a danger or flight risk, they say

As for the threat about killing his attorney, they write:

Mr. Musaibli has been locked up for almost three years; his frustration is understandable, and defense attorneys routinely deal with clients directing their frustrations at them. Undersigned counsel are confident that, at worst, the call reflects this frustration and they do not take his words literally….

MINNESOTA: Man pleads guilty to trying to aid Hamas as part of efforts to attack US police and overthrow government

The alleged “Boogaloo” movement is portrayed in the media as “right-wing,” but Teeter “told CNN in June that his goal was to protect demonstrators from law enforcement and white supremacists, describing himself as an anarchist.” The Justice Department said:

“These defendants sought to use violence against the police, other government officials and government property as part of their desire to overthrow the government. While planning these activities, the defendants met individuals whom they believed to be members of the foreign terrorist group Hamas.”

A man who says he intends to protect Leftist rioters from police and from “white supremacists,” who do exist but in vanishingly smaller numbers than the Left imagines and claims, is not “right-wing.” But the Leftist media establishment needs “right-wing” terrorists to maintain its narrative, so these clowns will do.

‘Boogaloo Bois’ member pleads guilty in connection with attempt to supply material support to Hamas

by Alex Nitzberg, Just the News, May 4, 2021:

A member of the “Boogaloo Bois” has pleaded guilty in connection with attempting to supply material support to the foreign terror group Hamas.

Michael Solomon “pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” according to the Justice Department. “According to court documents, Michael Solomon, 31, of New Brighton, Minn., was a member of the ‘Boogaloo Bois,’ a group of individuals who espouse violent anti-government sentiments. In late May 2020, the FBI initiated an investigation into Solomon and co-defendant Benjamin Ryan Teeter, both members of the ‘Boogaloo Bois,’ and a sub-group called the ‘Boojahideen,’” the DOJ said.

The two individuals engaged with a confidential human source who they thought belonged to Hamas as well as an undercover FBI worker they also thought was a Hamas member.

“According to court documents, on June 10, 2020, Solomon and Teeter met with a confidential human source (CHS), whom the defendants believed to be a member of Hamas. During this meeting, Solomon and Teeter proposed assisting Hamas as a means of furthering the goals of the Boogaloo Bois,” the DOJ noted. “On June 28, 2020, Solomon, Teeter and the CHS met an undercover employee of the FBI (UCE) that Solomon believed was a member of Hamas. During this meeting, Solomon and Teeter proposed manufacturing suppressors, untraceable firearms and fully automatic firearms for Hamas.”

Solomon and Teeter made several suppressors and gave them to the two individuals they believed belonged to Hamas — they also intended to make and supply even more suppressors.

“On July 6, 2020, Solomon and Teeter purchased a drill press for the purpose of manufacturing suppressors for Hamas. Solomon admitted that he and Teeter had planned to use the drill press to also manufacture suppressors for members of the Boogaloo Bois. Solomon and Teeter brought the drill press to Solomon’s home and later used the drill press to manufacture five suppressors,” the press release said. “On July 30, 2020, Solomon and Teeter delivered the suppressors to the CHS and UCE believing those devices would be used by the militant wing of Hamas. During that meeting, the defendants agreed to manufacture additional suppressors for Hamas believing that the next batch of suppressors would be used against Israeli and U.S. military personnel overseas,” the DOJ noted….

Something to Worry About…Israel’s Legal System

The debilitating deadlock, in which Israel’s political system is mired, is in large measure the result of judicial disregard—or at least distortion—of the law.


Over the past decade, the public image of the Supreme Court as an autonomous and impartial arbiter has been increasingly eroded… [T]he court and its judges are increasingly viewed by a considerable portion of the Israeli public as pushing forward their own political agenda… – Prof. Ran Hirschl, Towards Juristocracy, Harvard University Press, 2004.

The public is further losing its faith in…the legal system, with only 36 percent of the Jewish public expressing confidence in the courts…Public’s faith in Israel’s justice system continues to plummet”, Ha’aretz , August 15, 2013.

As the Israeli political system flounders in corrosive crisis, caught in an almost inconceivable impasse—in which the formation of a Zionist coalition hinges on embracing blatantly anti-Zionist factions, some profound soul-searching is clearly called for.

Without doubt, one of the most vexing questions for any concerned citizen is—or at least, should be—how this situation was ever allowed to come about in the first place. After all, as I have underscored previously (see here and here), it is plainly and painfully clear that these dominantly Arab, anti-Zionist lists should have been precluded from participation in the elections in Israel.

This is not some fanciful Right-wing delusion but is, indeed, an unequivocal conclusion that arises from the explicit letter of the Israeli law. Indeed, from one of the quasi-constitutional Basic Laws!

Thus, Clause 7a of Basic Law: Knesset states: A list of candidates shall not participate in elections to the Knesset, and a person shall not be a candidate for election to the Knesset, if the goals or actions of the list or the actions of the person, expressly or by implication, include…:

  • negation of the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state…

There are four dominantly Arab factions in today’s Knesset. Three of them—the Communist Hadash, the ultra-Arab nationalist Balad, and the radical Taal—run together in a political alliance known as the Joint List, while the Islamist Ra’am, previously part of the Joint List, is currently running as an independent faction.

Without exception, these factions make explicit reference to their goal of ending the dominant Jewish character of Israel and transforming it into a “state-of-all-its-citizens”, including support for measures that would make Israel indefensible militarily and unsustainable demographically as a Jewish State. The same is true for a good number of prominent members of these lists. See here, here here, here  & here.

This is a clear and incontrovertible contravention of not only the spirit, but of the express letter, of the Basic Law: Knesset, which, ipso facto, should be sufficient grounds for the disqualification of these lists from the Knesset elections.

It is important to note that the disqualification called for has nothing to do with the ethnicity of the Arab voters, but the enmity of the Arab parties, and does not involve the right of individual Arab citizens to vote in elections, but the right of (anti-Zionist) Arab political organizations to participate in them.

However, time and again, whenever disqualification of one of these lists—and/or certain candidates thereof—have been brought before the Supreme Court, it has ruled against disqualification and permitted their participation–while ruling to bar participation of numerous Jewish candidates and/or lists, usually on far more nebulous charges.

Indeed, Clause 7a was inserted into Basic Law: Knesset in 1985, for the express purpose of barring the participation of anti-Zionist lists in the elections—as well as that of lists/candidates who engaged in nefarious misdeeds, such as promoting racism and/or supporting armed aggression/terror against Israel.

Since then, the Supreme Court has ruled ten times to permit the participation of overtly anti-Zionist Arab lists or candidates—and never once to preclude their participation!

These judicial decisions fly in the face of common sense, the letter of the law, and the spirit of the Declaration of Independence, the country’s founding document, that affirms (and reaffirms) Israel as the nation-state of the Jews. (Interestingly—and significantly—the Declaration of Independence cites the word “Jew”/“Jewish” twenty four times—virtually all in reference (whether direct or oblique) to the right to national sovereignty—and only twice to “equal”/“equality”—and then only in the context of civic, not national, rights.)

It is this kind of perverse judicial behavior and blatant judicial disregard/distortion of the law that has gravely eroded trust in the Israeli justice system.

It raises trenchant and troubling questions—questions to which the Israeli public deserves answers.

‘Islamophobia has become a tool to silence critics of Islam. Criticism is not the same as discrimination.’

“Islamophobia exists just like anti-Semitism. However, it has become a political tool to silence the critics of Islam. Criticism of any religion is not the same as discrimination against its followers.”

I’m not sure “Islamophobia” exists, it depends upon how it is defined, and it rarely is. But the rest of this anonymous statement is spot-on, and is what I have been saying for years. However, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies have for the moment completely won the day. It is taken for granted that criticism of Islam consisting of opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression is “racism,” “bigotry,” “Islamophobia.” But as this is a revolt against reality and a victory of spurious propaganda, it is certain not to last.

Has Islamophobia become a political tool?

WION, May 4, 2021:

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday requested the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to vehemently counter Islamophobia and the false equation of Islam with radicalisation and terrorism.

Islamophobia exists just like anti-semitism. However, it has become a political tool to silence the critics of Islam. Criticism of any religion is not the same as discrimination against its followers.

The Pakistan government has decided that there would be no compromise on the country’s controversial blasphemy law, days after the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling for a review of Islamabad eligibility for the General Scheme of Preferences Plus (GSP+) status in wake of an “alarming” increase in the use of blasphemy accusations in the country.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the vilification of Islamic precepts and religious personalities, wrongly justified under the garb of the right to freedom of expression or opinion, hurts the sentiments of 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.

However, Pakistan fails to question its ”all-weather friend” China on its exploitation of Uighur Muslims in concentration camps.

The European Parliament, in its latest session on Thursday, adopted a resolution demanding Pakistan to allow space for religious freedom and urged the EU authorities to review GSP plus status for Pakistan amid the increasing number of blasphemy cases.

Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, both in content and application, are contrary to Pakistan’s human rights obligations to respect and protect the right to life, freedom of thought, conscience and religion or belief, freedom of opinion and expression, equality before the law, prohibition of discrimination and the right to life….

Fascist Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Trump Ban

Facebook’s far-Left oversight board has upheld their ban of President Trump. Yet they have no problem with some of the worst racists, terrorists, and dictators spreading their propaganda on Facebook. Americans must support alternative communication platforms, if we are to have any chance in our fight against the Left.

Facebook Oversight Board upholds Trump ban but calls indefinite suspension ‘not appropriate’

By Fox News, May 5, 2021

Facebook’s Oversight Board on Wednesday upheld former President Donald Trump‘s ban from Facebook and Instagram, but said it was “not appropriate” for Facebook to impose the “indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension.”

“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board announced Wednesday morning.

But the board gave Facebook six months to review the “arbitrary” indefinite ban, saying in a tweet that the company “violated its own rules.”

“Facebook cannot make up the rules as it goes, and anyone concerned about its power should be concerned about allowing this,” the board said in a statement. “Having clear rules that apply to all users and Facebook is essential for ensuring the company treats users fairly.”

The board in January accepted a case referral from Facebook to examine the ban, as well as to provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

“Facebook’s normal penalties include removing the violating content, imposing a time-bound period of suspension, or permanently disabling the page and account,” the board said Wednesday, insisting that Facebook “review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform.”

As for recommendations on suspensions for high-profile users like Trump, the board said that “it is not always useful to draw a firm distinction between political leaders and other influential users, recognizing that other users with large audiences can also contribute to serious risks of harm.”

“While the same rules should apply to all users, context matters when assessing the probability and imminence of harm,” the board said. “When posts by influential users pose a high probability of imminent harm, Facebook should act quickly to enforce its rules. Although Facebook explained that it did not apply its ‘newsworthiness’ allowance in this case, the Board called on Facebook to address widespread confusion about how decisions relating to influential users are made.”

The board added that “considerations of newsworthiness should not take priority when urgent action is needed to prevent significant harm.”

The board also urged Facebook to “publicly explain the rules that it uses when it imposes account-level sanctions against influential users,” saying the rules should ensure that when Facebook “imposes a time-limited suspension on the account of an influential user to reduce the risk of significant harm, it will assess whether the risk has receded before the suspension ends.”

“If Facebook identifies that the user poses a serious risk of inciting imminent violence, discrimination or other lawless action at that time, another time-bound suspension should be imposed when such measures are necessary to protect public safety and proportionate to the risk,” the board added.

Florida Legislature Passes Bill to Regulate Social Media Corporations—But Excludes One Key Company

One of the most powerful companies in America was able to wriggle an exemption from Florida’s proposed law targeting social media companies.


The Florida state legislature recently passed—by overwhelming majorities in both of their Republican-controlled chambers—a new law that imposes fines on social media corporations for deplatforming political candidates.

Governor Ron DeSantis called for the legislation and is expected to sign it, which would make Florida the first state in the nation to enact such a policy.

The Florida bill prohibits social media companies from permanently deleting or banning political candidates, but allows suspensions of up to 14 days. It still allows services to remove individual posts that violate its terms of service as well.

If disobeyed, the state’s Elections Commission would be directed to fine a company $250,000 a day for statewide candidates and $25,000 a day for all others. Additionally, the law requires the companies to provide information about removals and to apply their rules consistently.

While Republican lawmakers have insisted this measure has nothing to do with former President Trump’s removal from Twitter, many have connected the dots between the two events.

Netchoice, a trade group for internet corporations, testified against the bill. Their president, Steve DelBianco, said that private entities should have the right to decide what’s best for their users without (government) interference. He went on to state, “The First Amendment makes clear that government may not regulate the speech of private individuals or businesses. This includes government action that compels speech by forcing a private social media platform to carry content that is against its policies or preferences.”

Republicans say the legislation is needed to curb the influence of the nation’s leading social media companies who have outsized influence over the national conversation, but notably, they exempted from the law the state’s most famous corporation: The Walt Disney Company.

A provision in the bill gives an exemption to “ any information service, system, internet search engine, or access software provider operated by a company that owns and operates a theme park or large entertainment complex.” This amendment was added towards the end of the process, proving the Tallahassee capitol may maintain more than a few mouseholes for Disney’s lobbyists.

Disney, as you may recall, recently “canceled” conservative Hollywood star Gina Carano, making the exemption all the more striking.

Republican State Representative Blaise Ingoglia said that exemption was included so that the Disney Plus streaming service “isn’t caught up in this.” Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis says that 77 percent of the state’s budget is funded through tourism, and Disney brings in more than $700 million in tax revenue each year alone. Given these factors, it is unsurprising state lawmakers avoided any action that might spur Disney to move the cheese.

The law will inevitably be challenged in the courts where it will likely be overturned as unconstitutional. Forcing a private business to host speech by a political candidate is one of the most overt violations of the First Amendment’s right to free speech in modern history. And the carve-out for Disney means the law also violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s promise of equal application of the law. Lastly, the legislation violates Section 230, which ensures that First Amendment protections are applied in technology spaces.

In short, this law is an egregious violation of our Constitution, our founding principles, and our belief in individual liberty.

Disney is not wrong to lobby its way into an exclusion from an unjust and unconstitutional law, though it would be acting unethically if it initially lobbied for the bill and then worked to exclude itself. But their actions still show that the government is beholden to special interests, even while claiming to implement regulations that restrain them.

If applied, Florida’s bill would demolish small competitors who may be emerging in the field, while Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter could easily absorb the fine. Instead, officials who claim to value limited government should be working to remove regulations and make it easier for new competitors to enter the market.

It is clear that we are dealing with a culture (in politics, business, and the media) in which the spirit of free speech is increasingly under threat. But we don’t beat them by joining them or by using the government to violate free speech laws in the name of “protecting” free speech.

In this case, it is clear that the best laid plans of mice and men will go awry. It would be better to follow the plans laid out in the Constitution instead.

In New Statement, President Trump Says 2020 Election Was “Fraudulent” and “THE BIG LIE!”

Absolutely. Now what? How do we right the terrible, horrible wrong?

Trump Says He’ll Appropriate ‘The Big Lie’ To Refer To His Election Loss

Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced he’ll begin to use the term “the big lie” – commonly used by his critics to describe his baseless election fraud claims – to refer to the 2020 election results, a sign he has no plans to tone down his rhetoric as one social media platform adjudicates his suspension.

Key Facts

In a statement sent through his political action committee, Save America PAC, Trump incorrectly blasted his loss in November as “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020” and said it “will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!”

As Trump has mounted his return to the spotlight, he has again become increasingly vocal about his unfounded fraud claims, putting out statement after statement in recent days about an Arizona election audit many onlookers have labeled dubious.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 ranking House Republican and a vocal Trump critic, shot back on Twitter that the election “was not stolen,” adding, “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE” and “poisoning our democratic system.”

But this latest development comes as Facebook announced Monday it would decide the fate of Trump’s account, which was suspended after his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 based on his fraud claims, on Wednesday.

Tangent

Trump has claimed he is better off without social media, particularly Twitter, calling his press releases more “elegant” than tweets and arguing Twitter has “become totally BORING” even as he tried to tag a right-wing news network in a recent statement.

Key Background

As early as the morning after election day, Trump began falsely claiming victory, using the time it took to count mail-in ballots as a window of opportunity. He has refused to concede President Joe Biden legitimately won the 2020 election even after putting out multiple video statements acknowledging he would be leaving office after his supporters stormed the Capitol.

Crucial Quote

“We will never give up. We will never concede,” Trump told a crowd of supporters gathered in front of the White House on Jan. 6 – some of whom later marched to the Capitol and stormed the building.

Big Number

70%. That’s the share of Republicans who believe Biden did not win enough votes to be president, according to a CNN poll of 1,004 U.S. adults released late last month.

What To Watch For

Trump remains a major force in the GOP and all but a handful of Republican officials are at least publicly eager to keep it that way, but it remains a genuine mystery whether he will mount another bid for the White House. He said last month he is “very seriously, beyond seriously” considering a run.

PODCAST: For The Love Of White Castle

Interestingly, the big news in Florida is not about the state’s new “anti-riot” law or rejection of the “vaccine passports,” but rather something bigger, namely White Castle has finally opened a restaurant in Florida, in Orlando specifically. It is said to be the world’s largest White Castle restaurant strategically placed near the theme parks and opened just yesterday (Mon, 5/3/2021).

News of the first Florida “Aluminum Room,” as aficionados call it, has set the state abuzz, particularly by northerners who now live in the Sunshine State, including yours truly. We have had access to frozen White Castles for several years, which is nice, but it doesn’t quite match those hot off the grill.

Of course, White Castle was the very first hamburger chain, founded in 1921, but it is family run and not franchised as others have done. They are small, square shaped burgers, steamed on a bed of onions, and possess a unique taste which northerners love. Originally, the small burger sold for just five cents, but I remember them at ten cents back in the 1960’s. Today, they are still a bargain which is why people “buy them by the sack.”

Hamburger connoisseurs have poo-poohed White Castle for years, but they do not appreciate its unique taste and loyal following. Frankly, they just don’t get it. These same people probably do not understand Cincinnati chili which is also unique and migrated to Florida some time ago.

True southerners seem to prefer Crystal Burgers which also features a small patty, but the taste is significantly different and the bun is larger, thereby you get the feeling you are buying more bread and less meat. I am confident the Orlando White Castles will convert a lot of southern skeptics.

White Castle has taken so much abuse about its size over the years, northerners affectionately refer to them as “sliders,” the first to do so. Nonetheless, northerners are devoted to them, which is why the opening of the first Florida “W.C. Steak House,” is greeted with considerable enthusiasm. Inevitably, this will cause both Floridians and visitors to make pilgrimages to Orlando just to satisfy their cravings. Hopefully the demand will flourish and we’ll see new restaurants open in other parts of the state, e.g., Tampa Bay (hint, hint).

One nuance worth mentioning is how the burgers are used in their famous turkey stuffing. I have friends in the north who swear by it, claiming it is simply delicious. You can find the recipe on their WEBSITE. There is also a new “Brunch Craver’s Benedict” which I want to try for breakfast.

As for me, I didn’t attend the grand opening as I loathe crowds, but I will be making the pilgrimage shortly to satisfy my “craving.” I plan on ordering a couple of sacks of cheeseburgers with jalapenos (one to eat there, one to bring home to Tampa Bay), or maybe it will be a “crave clutch” of 20, some onion chips, their legendary fries, and a Red Pop. And if you haven’t guessed by now, nobody orders just one burger; you order by the “sack” instead.

Yes, to the millions of misplaced Yankees living in Florida, this is very big news!

By the way, the new Florida White Castle restaurant is located in southwest Orlando at the new The Village of O-Town West development, 11595 Daryl Carter Pkwy, Orlando, FL 32836; Tel: 407/813-2516. Click for MAP.

Biden DOJ Nominee Kirsten Clarke Promoted Work of Racist Anti-Semitic Black Supremacist. “Rape the White Girls. Rape their Fathers. Cut the Mothers’ Throats”

This vile pit viper is the poster girl for the party of evil, the democrats. This is real Nazism. What we need to track is any Republican Senators that ultimately confirm the nomination.

“Rape the White Girls. Rape their Fathers. Cut the Mothers’ Throats”: Biden Nominee Kirsten Clarke Promoted Work of Racist Anti-Semitic Black Supremacist

By :Daniel Greenfield, Front Page Magazine, April  30, 2021

Not a surprise.

Kirsten Clarke, Biden’s nominee to head civil rights at the DOJ, has a history of black nationalism, and sympathy for racism and antisemitism.

Kristen Clarke, Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant attorney general of the United States, once promoted racist pseudoscientific quackery, arguing that the human brain was structured in a way that makes Black people superior to white people, and that “human mental processes” in the brain have chemicals that imbue one race with “superior physical and mental abilities” and “spiritual abilities.”

And then there’s the antisemitism.

Wellesley Professor Tony Martin spoke at Harvard at the invitation of the Black Students Association (BSA). Martin, the author of an anti-Semitic tract entitled The Jewish Onslaught, used his Harvard forum to denounce the Jewish tradition and the Jewish people for holding a “monopoly” on centuries-worth of the notion of divinely ordained African inferiority. Repeating his belief that the “so-called Sages” of the Babylonian Talmud were the earliest racists of recorded history, Martin urged Harvard students to consider The Bell Curve, a controversial new book linking race and intelligence, as only the latest manifestation of a racist tradition spawned by Jews.

Sitting in Boylston Auditorium, listening to my heritage be defamed and lied about, my thoughts turned away from the anti-Semite at the lectern and to the young woman who had introduced him. In fact, immediately after the introduction, Martin lavished praise on Kristen M. Clarke ’97, the BSA president, who, he said, had courageously invited him “in the face of enormous pressure from the forces of reaction.”

BSA President Kristen M. Clarke defended the choice after the speech Wednesday.

“Professor Martin is an intelligent, well-versed Black intellectual who bases his information on indisputable fact,” she said.

Various lefty Jewish groups rushed to Clarke’s defense. But then there’s her Amiri Baraka connection which makes Tony Martin look good.

Archived copies of a scholarly journal show Justice Department nominee Kristen Clarke listed on the masthead alongside an anti-Semitic writer with whom she claimed under oath she has never collaborated.

The revelation could prompt charges that she gave inaccurate answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Clarke told lawmakers that she has never worked with Amiri Baraka, the Marxist and anti-Semitic black nationalist who accused Israel of having advanced knowledge of 9/11 in a 2002 poem. Both Clarke and Baraka are listed as editors of the journal Souls at least eight times over two years.

In a written supplement to Clarke’s April 14 confirmation hearing, Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah) asked Clarke a series of questions about Baraka and an article he wrote comparing police officers and judges to the Ku Klux Klan. The article is called “Mumia, Lynch Law, and Imperialism.” “Mumia” refers to Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murdering a police officer in 1981.

Lee asked Clarke whether she served “on the editorial staff of a journal with Amiri Baraka.” She answered “no.”

The Washington Free Beacon reviewed eight editions of the journal in question, Souls, A Critical Journal of Black Politics, Culture, and Society, on Taylor & Francis, the international publisher of scholarly journals. The editions were published quarterly in 1999 and 2000. In each edition, Clarke is listed on the masthead as an assistant editor while Baraka is listed as a contributing editor.

Clarke was actually caught promoting that same essay.

President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division circulated an essay from self-proclaimed Marxist poet Amiri Baraka defending cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal and referring to police officers as members of the Ku Klux Klan, according an email from her days at Columbia University.

Kristen Clarke forwarded the Baraka essay in an email on June 25, 1999, to her mentor, the late historian Manning Marable.

She suggested that the essay, entitled “Mumia, ‘Lynch Law’ & Imperialism” be placed in a magazine Marable edited and used for a panel on the death penalty.

“Here is a piece for the magazine & the panel 3 Race and The Death Penalty,” Clarke wrote to Marable.

Just to give you some context about how Amiri Baraka’s racism was, here’s some of his poetry. Baraka’s poetry is art in the same way that Hitler was an artist. I’m not making the connection because everybody bad is Hitler. I’m using Baraka’s own words.

“I got the extermination blues, jew-boys. I got the Hitler syndrome figured… So come for the rent, jewboys, or come ask me for a book, or sit in the courts handing down your judgements still I got something for you, gonna give it to my brothers, so they’ll know what your whole story is, then one day, jewboys, we all, even my wig wearing mother gonna put it on you all at once.”

Later in “Confessions of a former Anti-Semite,” Baraka explained these lines as meaning “Jews had stolen Black secrets and then said that Hitler disliked Jews because he could smell the contact with Black on them.”

“Atheist jews double crossers stole our secrets crossed the white desert to spill them,” Baraka ranted. “The fag’s death they gave us on a cross… they give us to worship a dead jew and not ourselves.” “The empty jew betrays us, as he does hanging stupidly from a cross, in an oven, the pantomime of our torture, so clearly, cinemascope the jews do it… the little arty bastards talking aritmetic they sucked from the arab’s head. Suck your pricks. The best is yet to come. On how we beat you and killed you.”

But, just in case you’re wondering, Baraka hated white people in general.

“We are all beautiful (except white people, they are full of, and made of shit),” Amiri Baraka wrote. “Come up, black dada / nihilismus. Rape the white girls. Rape / their fathers. Cut the mothers’ throats,” he wrote.

What kind of decent person would be associated with filth like this? No one. Only a Biden nominee would.

Imagine a Republican nominee circulating material from anyone half this hateful and deranged. But the media keeps playing defense for Clarke.
