EXCLUSIVE: DNC Sent Millions To Law Firms Behind ‘Unprecedented Lawfare’ Campaign Against Trump

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has sent millions of dollars to law firms that are intimately involved in an “unprecedented lawfare” campaign against former President Donald Trump, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reviewed by the Daily Caller.

The DNC has paid close to $2 million since August of 2021 to Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP for “legal services,” according to the DNC’s FEC filingsKaplan Hecker & Fink LLP founding partner Roberta A. Kaplan represented E. Jean Carroll in her sexual assault and defamation suits against Trump. The New York Times previously reported that Reid Hoffman, the billionaire co-founder of LinkedIn, helped pay for Carroll’s lawsuits.

The firm states that it was founded to “build a law firm for the future rooted in principles of equity, integrity, and justice.” Partner Joshua Matz served as counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during the first Trump impeachment trial. He was invited back to serve on the second impeachment trial, according to the firm’s website. The firm also touts “representing former U.S. District Court Judge John Gleeson as a court-appointed amicus in United States of America v. Michael T. Flynn.”

The DNC has also paid Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP several million dollars for “legal services” since 2021, according to FEC filings. ABC News previously reported the firm has “represented the DNC for a long time.” Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale And Dorr LLP has filed numerous Amicus briefs in the United States v. Donald Trump case, which concerns Trump’s potential criminal liability for actions related to the 2020 election and Jan. 6, and currently sits before the Supreme Court.

Several alumni from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have ended up with major roles in the Biden administration, including Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and Ambassador to Mexico Ken Salazar. Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is also a WilmerHale alumnus.

“There is now clear and explosive evidence that the Biden DNC is paying Democrat law firms to engage in in this unprecedented lawfare and election interference against President Trump,” Mike Davis, a legal adviser to Trump and the founder and president of the Article III Project, told the Caller.

In April, DNC spokesperson Alex Floyd stated that “the DNC does not spend a single penny of grassroots donors’ money on legal bills.”

Floyd’s statement came in response to the news that the DNC had been using donor money to pay for President Joe Biden’s legal bills during Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation of him.

The DNC did not immediately respond to inquiries regarding the payments to the two law firms.

Missouri Attorney General Suing New York Over ‘Unconstitutional Lawfare’ Against Trump: ‘Time to Restore the Rule of Law’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced he is filing a lawsuit against the state of New York for what he called “their direct attack on our democratic process through unconstitutional lawfare against President Trump.”

Bailey said he would be taking steps to combat illicit prosecutions against the former president.

Bailey said it’s time to restore the rule of law.

“Radical progressives in New York are trying to rig the 2024 election. We have to stand up and fight back,” he exclusively told Fox News Digital.

Mo. AG Bailey Suing N.Y. for ‘Lawfare’ in Trump Trial

By Sandy Fitzgerald | NewsMax, 21 June 2024:

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has announced his plans to sue the state of New York over former President Donald Trump’s trial and conviction on charges of falsifying business records, saying the case was brought to interfere with Trump’s presidential election campaign.

“I will be filing suit against the state of New York for their direct attack on our democratic process through unconstitutional lawfare against President Trump,” Bailey, a Republican, posted on X Thursday night. “It’s time to restore the rule of law.”

“We have to fight back against a rogue prosecutor who is trying to take a presidential candidate off the campaign trail,” he added. “It sabotages Missourians’ right to a free and fair election.”

Bailey’s argument claims that the statute of limitations on misdemeanor business records falsification charges expired in 2019, and that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg never specified the “intent to commit another crime,” reports Axios.

According to Bailey’s office, the lawsuit will go to the U.S. Supreme Court as it involves one state suing another. The case will be titled “Missouri v. New York.”

Last month, Bailey told Newsmax that it’s clear that the Department of Justice colluded with Democrat prosecutors to go after Trump.

“Everyone can see the illicit nature of the prosecutions themselves,” Bailey told Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight,” adding that the New York case, as well as other claims against Trump, “are not supported by the facts and the law.”

Bailey said he was demanding that the DOJ release communications with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, New York Attorney General Letitia James, and Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis.​​

Legal Insurrection Through Lawfare — Part Two

“Insurrection is an art, and like all arts has its own laws.” — Leon Trotsky

“‘Lawfare’ is a weapon designed to destroy the enemy by using, misusing, and abusing the legal system and the media in order to raise a public outcry against that enemy.” —   Professor Susan Tiefenbrun, Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

“Just the minute the FBI begins making recommendations on what should be done with its information, it becomes a Gestapo.” — J. Edgar Hoover

“The great intel institutions which were designed to protect us against the Marxist onslaught have, in the end, become the most subversive of America’s institutions.  Anyone today could look at the American intelligence community and guess it was an “organizational chart for the old KGB.”  — J. Michael Waller

“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within…for the traitor appears not to be a traitor…he rots the soul of a nation…he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Cultural Marxism, critical theory, and the other excreta of the Comintern’s Frankfurt School have rotted American society from within.”  — J. Michael Waller

James Clapper, and then John Brennan, were the workhorses who culturally changed the Intelligence Community into politically correct “diversity and inclusion” via Obama’s 2011 Executive Order 13583.  The EO established government-wide initiatives.  It was a presidential decree to transform the culture of the entire federal bureaucracy through implementation of “critical theory.”  The Marxist cultural revolution of Antonio Gramsci and Herbert Marcuse was successfully installed.

Clapper’s Enterprise Strategy was just the intelligence community portion of Obama’s carefully planned White House initiative to inject critical race theory into the entire federal workforce and to use that workforce as an engine of societal change.

In Big Intel, Mike Waller tells us that few in our intelligence agencies dissented.

CIA operations officer, Scott Uehlinger, who resigned and went public in 2017, said, “The twin serpents of politicization and political correctness—a Soviet term by the way—walk hand in hand throughout the intelligence community, as well as every other government agency.”  He added, “The U.S. intelligence community is in the midst of a severe crisis.  It has been used, or perhaps allowed itself to be used, as a tool of political destruction, against some of the same U.S. citizens it was created to protect.”

When the Obama-era political abuses surfaced, Uehlinger said, “We are seeing the widespread abuse of intelligence by an incumbent administration to target political opposition.  Long a technique in the developing world—a tactic I often witnessed as a CIA station chief working abroad—the Third World has come to roost in the United States.”

Former FBI agent and whistleblower, Steve Friend, who was suspended indefinitely without pay, commented, “FBI requires two separate diversity trainings per year.  No instruction on due process or cruel and unusual punishment rights.”

The men and women employed in the 18 different intel agencies have reincarnated the Nazis of Nuremburg with their, “Just following orders.”

The Department of Justice is the most heavily politicized of the U.S. government.  In 2016, 91.6% gave to Democrats.  Homeland Security employees came in at 75% Democrat, and the Department of Education was as high as 96% Democrat. The National Education Association has never donated to a Republican presidential candidate.

All federal government departments have moved from very liberal to radical via the red diaper/red thread chain of the Obama administration hierarchy.

Critical theory and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) remained practically undisturbed by Trump and then emerged revitalized on the first day of Biden’s administration.

Legal insurrection through lawfare is being planned via Professor Rosa Brooks at Georgetown University Law Center.  J. Michael Waller, author of Big Intel: How the CIA and FBI Went from Cold War Heroes to Deep State Villains, comments, “It’s a feeder school to the Justice Department, to Supreme Court clerks and to the entire intelligence community.  Everything is planned there.”

A group of people meet at Georgetown University Law School to think through how to seize power from Trump if he were elected in 2024.  The intricacies of what they have planned are mind boggling.

They are planning an insurrection.

In his interview with Tucker Carlson, Waller discussed the Transition Integrity Project. What he exposed was extremely disturbing.

The Transition Integrity Project — Rosa Brooks

Red diaper baby, Rosa Brooks, law professor at Georgetown University and former Pentagon senior official, and Nils Gilman, a former vice chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley and historian at the Berggruen Institute, initially organized the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) in late 2019.  Other participants in the project include Michael Steele, John Podesta, Jennifer Granholm, Trey Grayson, Donna Brazile, William Kristol, Edward Luce, Max Boot and David Frum.  Despite all of them being left of center, the TIP is considered bipartisan and, as such retains a 501c3 tax-exempt status.

The Project involves over 100 current and former senior government and campaign leaders, academics, journalists, polling experts and former federal and state government officials…and in 2024, retired generals, who were chosen by Rosa Brooks for Obama.  Retired generals are not civilians.  They’re still subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and they’re involved as co-conspirators about overthrowing our government and eliminating a duly elected president.

TIP is a short-term project run under the auspices of the organization Protect Democracy which was founded by lawyers from Obama’s White House Counsel. “Protect Democracy” echoes the mainstream media mantra, “Our Democracy is in Danger.”  We do not pledge allegiance to “the democracy for which we stand,” but to “the Republic for which we stand.”  Joseph Goebbel’s propaganda of repetitious lies is perpetuated by America’s “Pravda” media in calling America a “democracy.”

The TIP was to decide the outcome and results of the 2020 election.  Their conclusion was that with a Joe Biden win, there would be no protests or street violence, but if Donald Trump won, America would end.

Their 2020 meetings were kept secret other than Washington Post’s report of their outcomes before the election.

Brooks is an adjunct scholar at West Point‘s Modern War Institute and a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, a liberal think tank in the United States founded in 1999. Top donors to the organization in 2021 included the Bill & Melinda Gates FoundationBloomberg PhilanthropiesFord FoundationRockefeller Foundation, and United States Department of State.  Here is the complete list of their funders.  All support critical theory and DEI.

Waller commented that Brooks, who as a senior Pentagon official selecting who the Obama generals would be, was writing about how we have to end civilian control or do away with civilian control of the military.

“She was wargaming out military coups against a sitting president, first after a disputed election and now being the host of an entire project to unseat a president who they agree would have been legally and clearly elected by a majority of the public and electoral votes.”

They are calling for a military coup.

Carlson believes Brooks is a “violence fetishist.”

Brooks has served as a volunteer advisor on defense policy to the Biden administration. She’s also a member of the pro-abortion Amnesty International USA, and has served on the board of Soros’ Open Society Foundation‘s US Programs Fund and as a senior advisor at the US Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.  Brooks was also a consultant for the Open Society Institute and for the NGO Human Rights Watch.

She has contributed numerous op-eds and book reviews to the Washington PostThe New York TimesThe AtlanticThe Wall Street Journal and numerous other publications.

Rather than having secrecy as they had in 2020, in 2024, they invited media to attend.  A reporter from the far-left Atlantic Magazine was very disturbed about what they planned.  He said this was a real problematic issue for those who believe in the Constitution.

Waller stated, “Congress is funding things that they know are unconstitutional. The Justice Department is enforcing things that its lawyers know are unconstitutional.  And now you have Mary McCord in her group at Georgetown Law writing the whole orchestra for the transition after November of this year. To rip the constitution to shreds.

“This is banana republic stuff in the name of protecting the Constitution.”

Mary McCord

Mary B. McCord is another red diaper baby who shows up everywhere.

Her Juris Doctor is from Georgetown University and for almost 20 years she was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. In the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, she served as Deputy Chief of the Appellate Division and as Chief of the Criminal Division.  She is a national security analyst and was Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the U.S. Department of Justice.

McCord joined Georgetown University Law Center’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP), a left-of-center academic center at the law school that engages in legal cases on First and Second Amendment issues, among others. McCord’s work at the center has been in leading opposition to unlawful militias, stating that the second amendment affords no protection to private “militias.”  She also has participated on the National Task Force on Election Crises alongside other Leftist election policy advocates.

Georgetown University Law School receives a ton of federal money, but they also received Chinese money. Last year, they got a $30 million grant from a Taiwanese businessman who made his fortune as a financier of the Chinese Communist Party on the mainland.  This was Georgetown’s largest gift in its history since it was founded in the 1700s.

To give you the full flavor of her personality, she and Andrew Weissman hosted a live taping of their podcast, “Prosecuting Donald Trump” at Georgetown University.  She also did a PBS Hour with Judy Woodruff on “Trump’s false election claims being red meat for extremist groups.”

McCord was appointed legal counsel for the January 6th committee by Speaker Pelosi.  She testified to Congress, that the “insurrection” will require not only criminal enforcement mechanisms, but also “a civil enforcement mechanism that would allow the U.S. Department of Justice to seek injunctive relief and civil forfeiture against armed paramilitary actors and their organizations.”  Link  (The only people armed on January 6th were the capitol police, but McCord had insinuated in other venues that protestors had hidden arms under their coats despite firearms being illegal in DC.)

Her article, It’s Time for Congress to Make Domestic Terrorism a Federal Crime appeared in the website, Lawfare.  Imagine who would become targets.

McCord was also counsel for the Trump impeachment committee, both one and two, and is a statutorily designated amicus curiae for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review.

She has also discussed “Analyzing and Defeating Right-Wing Extremism” with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

McCord is married to Sheldon Snook, who also worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. In fact, it was McCord who got her husband his job as administrative assistant and court liaison to the public and news media.  She recommended him to Judge Hogan, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, as she had previously clerked for him.  Snook also served as spokesman for the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.  He currently works in a similar capacity for the U.S. Supreme Court.  Snook is a key player.

Staging the Coup

Waller states, “…This has just become one big club, one huge business, one big grift in many ways, but one big political war now, where you have a merger between hardcore political activists, violence fetishists and public enemy types and the people who are supposed to be inside our system to serve our country and protect our Constitution.

“The great intel institutions which were designed to protect us against the Marxist onslaught have, in the end, become the most subversive of America’s institutions.  Anyone today could look at the American intelligence community and guess it was an ‘organizational chart for the old KGB.’”

If Trump is elected, the TIP has formulated their plans to thwart his goals.

Look at Rosa Brooks from Georgetown Univ. and Mary McCord and her husband, Sheldon Snook. They know Trump only has one term, so their allies inside the government will slow walk everything, and already hundreds of pieces of litigation are ready against as yet unnamed Trump administration officials.  They intend to hamstring the entire team and all his appointees and Trump’s appointees who don’t already have clearances won’t get them.

McCord is a Washington insider with a husband on the supreme court staff, so they are networked with the Justice Department and the judges.  Sheldon Snook will make sure Trump’s people are kept in the right judicial venues to assure a court circuit who will rule favorably in their cases.  Worse comes to worse, they will remove Trump via their bought and paid for DEI and critical theory military.

We Still Have Time to Stop Them

Carlson asked what the RNC was doing and Waller said he didn’t know.  Waller made the comment that Rona McDaniel had a big florist and limousine bill, but no one knows if she was organized to attack against these entrenched interests.

He then mentioned that the Heritage Foundation has their “action plans,” as well as the America First Policy Institute, but both of these organizations are “controlled opposition.”  Their membership and donors include globalist Council on Foreign Relations members, the do-nothing Council for National Policy, and the American Legislative Exchange Council, which is funded by the Koch orgs and has long promoted a constitutional convention.

Congressman Pete Sessions is chairman of a subcommittee that has jurisdiction over Georgetown University.  He wrote a stinging letter to Rosa Brooks’ regarding the TIP results and the baseless accusations she made in her Washington Post article of September 3, 2020, just prior to the election.

Mary McCord was cited by Sessions for her recent comments, per NBC, that “We’re already starting to put together a team to think through the most damaging types of things that he [Trump] might do so that we’re ready to bring lawsuits if we have to.”

“It would be highly inappropriate,” Sessions said, “for a university that relies on federal funding to conduct partisan political activity intended to undermine a lawfully conducted election.”

Georgetown University Law Center needs to be shut down.


The last two chapters of Big Intel are a roadmap for what needs to be done.

America’s intelligence community, her entire federal bureaucracy, her universities and colleges, her corporations and board members, have adopted cultural Marxism, DEI and critical theory.

The Marcuse aficionados are planning a repeat of the 1917 Russian Revolution.  Only this time, it is happening in the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”

‘I think it’s time we put a felon in the White House. Trump 2024 baby!’ — Riverside California County Sheriff Chad Bianco

We came across a most interesting  statement on X by Riverside California County Sheriff Chad Bianco. Sheriff Bianco unequivocally states, “I think it’s time we put a felon in the White House. Trump 2024 baby!

The UKEN Report’s Cindy Uken in  June 1, 2024 column titled Time to put a felon in the White House” wrote,

RIVERSIDE — Less than 48 hours after former President Donald J. Trump was found guilty Thursday of 34 counts of falsifying business records to cover up a hush money payment to a porn star, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said in an Instagram post that it’s time to put a felon in the White House.

“Let’s save this country and make America great, again,” Bianco says in the Instagram post.

Trump is the first former president to become a convicted felon.

The unanimous verdict from the 12-person jury ended a six-week trial in which prosecutors accused Trump of orchestrating an illegal conspiracy to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Bianco starts the Instagram by saying he’s going to “change teams” and laments that some might be upset with him. For the full impact of the post, watch and listen here:

Chad Bianco (@sheriffbianco) • Instagram photos and videos

Bianco, who has made no secret of the fact that he is flirting with the idea of running for governor in 2028, told Uken he sat on the Instagram post for an hour before posting it.

Why did he do it?

“Our state is being destroyed by activist politicians who lie, distort truth, and are the biggest hypocrites anyone has ever seen,” Bianco told Uken Report. Too many of us go along with them and believe we wouldn’t be misled by propaganda.

From a law enforcement perspective, Bianco said he knows what it takes to arrest someone and get them convicted,

“I know what it takes to arrest someone and get them convicted. I have sat through hundreds of trials. The trial of President Trump was a joke and a scam from the beginning. CNN legal analysts even said the same, to include there was not enough for a conviction. They even admit the judge made major critical errors that won’t stand up to appeal. All of this means this was nothing more than political lawfare.”

‘We’re a Nation in Decline’: Jury Convicts Trump in N.Y. Trial

After having spent over a month on trial in a Manhattan courtroom and off the campaign trail, former President Donald Trump was convicted Thursday evening on 34 felony counts in what has been described as a Soviet-style political prosecution.

Trump was indicted last year on charges alleging that he had falsified business records in order to use his personal money to pay for a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Ordinarily, falsifying business records is classified as a misdemeanor under New York law; if committed in order to cover up or assist in the commission of another crime, it is elevated to a “Class E” felony. Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg claimed the NDA was a means of unlawfully influencing the 2016 election, thus elevating the charges to a felony and extending the statute of limitations, despite the fact that Trump has not been convicted of unlawfully influencing the 2016 election. This was only one of four sets of indictments levelled against Trump by Democratic prosecutors over the course of 2023.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York had previously investigated the allegations against Trump and determined that there was not evidence to suggest that Trump understood campaign finance laws or intentionally violated them. No charges were brought against the then-president.

The trial was presided over by Judge Juan Merchan, who had donated to the Biden campaign in 2020 and whose daughter is a political consultant to Democratic candidates and politicians, including Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. Merchan held Trump in criminal contempt and imposed gag orders upon the former president over the course of the trial. When Trump defense attorney Todd Blanche urged the jury to consider whether there is enough evidence to “send someone to prison,” he was reprimanded by Merchan.

As the trial concluded, Merchan delivered at least an hour’s worth of instructions to the jury, which jurors had to request to hear a second time during deliberations due to the length. The judge reminded jurors that, in order to convict, they must unanimously agree that Trump either falsified business records or caused someone else to do so in order to cover up or facilitate a crime, although he told jurors that they did not need to agree on what that crime was or whether Trump was covering it up or facilitating it. At the end of the second day of deliberations, Thursday, the jury convicted Trump on all 34 felony charges.

Conservatives reacted to the news within minutes of the conviction. “This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt,” Trump himself stated. “This was a rigged, disgraceful trial. The real verdict is going to be November 5 by the people. And they know what happened here. And everybody knows what happened here.” He continued:

“And it’s okay, I’m fighting for our country. I’m fighting for our Constitution. Our whole country is being rigged right now. This was done by the Biden administration in order to wound or hurt an opponent, a political opponent. And I think it’s just a disgrace. And we’ll keep fighting. We’ll fight till the end, and we’ll win because our country has gone to hell. We don’t have the same country anymore. We have a divided mess. We’re a nation in decline, serious decline, millions and millions of people pouring into our country right now from prisons and from mental institutions, terrorists, and they’re taking over our country. We have a country that’s in big trouble. But this was a rigged decision right from day one, with a conflicted judge who should have never been allowed to try this case. Never. And we will fight for our Constitution. This is long from over. Thank you very much.”

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins commented, “Our Republic only thrives when justice is blind, it dies when justice is blinded by politics and power. This is a sad day for our Republic.” In an interview with Perkins, Trump ally and renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson called the conviction the result of a “kangaroos court.” He added, “I think the vast majority of people … understand that if we go down this road, we’re done as a fair country. And I think that people will respond appropriately.”

Florida Governor and former U.S. Navy lawyer Ron DeSantis (R) said that the verdict “represents the culmination of a legal process that has been bent to the political will of the actors involved: a leftist prosecutor, a partisan judge and a jury reflective of one of the most liberal enclaves in America — all in an effort to ‘get’ Donald Trump.” He continued, “It is often said that no one is above the law, but it is also true that no one is below the law. If the defendant were not Donald Trump, this case would never have been brought, the judge would have never issued similar rulings, and the jury would have never returned a guilty verdict.” DeSantis concluded, “In America, the rule of law should be applied in a dispassionate, even-handed manner, not become captive to the political agenda of some kangaroo court.”

“The weaponization of our justice system has been a hallmark of the Biden Administration, and the decision today is further evidence that Democrats will stop at nothing to silence dissent and crush their political opponents,” House Speaker and constitutional lawyer Mike Johnson (R-La.) posted on social media. “The American people see this as lawfare, and they know it is wrong—and dangerous. President Trump will rightfully appeal this absurd verdict — and he WILL WIN!” Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), former Solicitor General for the state of Texas, called the trial and its conclusion “a grotesque abuse of the justice system,” adding that Merchan’s handling of the trial “diminished the credibility of every judge in the country.”

President Joe Biden, however, celebrated the political prosecution of his opponent. “In New York today, we saw that no one is above the law,” his campaign said in a statement. “[T]oday’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box.”

But Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., previously a lifelong Democrat, warned, “This will backfire in November. Even worse, it is profoundly undemocratic.” He continued, “America deserves a President who can win at the ballot box without compromising our government’s separation of powers or weaponizing the courts. You can’t save democracy by destroying it first. The Democrats are afraid they will lose in the voting booth, so instead they go after President Trump in the courtroom.” Kennedy added, “The Democratic Party’s strategy is to beat President Trump in the courtroom rather than the ballot box.”

Kennedy’s prediction seems to be accurate so far. Shortly after the verdict, donations to Trump’s presidential campaign began pouring in, reportedly resulting in his campaign’s donations website crashing. One of those who donated to Trump was Shaun Maguire, a Sequoia Capital partner and longtime Democrat. “I just donated $300k to Trump. I’m prepared to lose friends,” Maguire wrote on social media. He noted that he had voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and did not vote in 2020, adding, “Now, in 2024, I believe this is one of the most important elections of my lifetime, and I’m supporting Trump.” The venture capitalist described the “lawfare” campaign Democrats have waged against Trump as “radicalizing,” explaining, “Fairness is one of my guiding principles in life and simply, these cases haven’t been fair for Trump.”

Polling also shows that the Democrats’ “lawfare” campaign against Trump isn’t bolstering blue votes. According to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, 55% of American voters believe the prosecutions against Trump — including the now-concluded New York trial — are evidence that “Democrats are engaged in using the legal system in biased ways to take out a political opponent.” Additionally, 60% of voters believe that Trump will be judged unfairly because his trials are centered in “heavily Democratic jurisdictions like New York City or Atlanta, Georgia…” Trump would also beat Biden 49% to 43%, with 8% unsure who to vote for, according to the poll. When “unsure” voters are asked who they lean towards, Trump beats Biden 53% to 47%.

A March survey from McLaughlin and Associates concluded that almost 70% of Americans agree that the indictments and prosecutions against Trump are politically motivated, with nearly 60% of voters (including over a third of Democrats) saying that Biden has played a role in targeting Trump. Additionally, nearly 60% of voters (including a third of Democrats) said that they believe that “Joe Biden wants to stop President Trump from winning the election by putting him in jail…”

Following Thursday’s conviction, Trump is slated to be sentenced on July 11 — just four days before delegates will gather at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they are expected to cast their votes for Trump as the Republican presidential nominee. The former president could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison. Trump’s legal team intends to appeal the conviction.

Trump Campaign Rakes In $34 Million After Guilty Verdict

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign said Friday that it raised $34.8 million after he received a guilty verdict in a Manhattan court case.

After about two days of deliberation, a 12 person jury in Manhattan convicted Trump in the case brought by Democratic District Attorney Alvin Bragg on all 34 counts of falsifying business records. Following the verdict, the former president’s campaign donation page displayed a 500 error stating “something went wrong.” After the news of the site crashing and the verdict, the Trump campaign announced that it had raised $34.8 million.

“From just minutes after the sham trial verdict was announced, our digital fundraising system was overwhelmed with support, and despite temporary delays online because of the amount of traffic, President Trump raised $34.8 million dollars from small dollar donors. Not only was the amount historic, but 29.7% of yesterday’s donor’s were brand new donors to the WinRed platform,” Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, Trump campaign senior advisors, said in a statement.

Following the former president’s guilty verdict, the campaign site received major influxes in donations. Among those was Sequoia Capital partner Shaun Maguire who donated $300,000. Former Republican New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin said that he “secured a $800k donation from someone for President Trump’s Joint Fundraising Committee.”

Experts and Polls Agree that Dems’ Lawfare Campaign against Trump Isn’t Helping Biden

Democrats are waging a “lawfare” campaign against former President Donald Trump, but it may actually be hurting Joe Biden’s reelection efforts. According to the latest Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, voters will be largely split if a jury convicts the former president of crimes. If Trump were to be convicted either “of crimes related to his handling of classified presidential documents” or “for RICO in trying to influence the 2020 election results in Georgia,” voters would be split 50% to 50% between Trump and Biden. However, if Trump were to be convicted “for inciting the Capitol riots of January 6th,” he would beat Biden 52% to 48%.

Interestingly, the January iteration of the same poll showed that Trump would win if convicted in the first two cases but lose if convicted in the last. Those numbers shifted seemingly sporadically over the course of February and March, though in neither month did the survey predict a Biden victory. Of note, the number of registered Democrats voting against Trump if convicted “for inciting the Capitol riots of January 6th” dropped from 92% in January to a steady 86% over the past several months.

Mike Davis, founder of originalist constitutional think tank Article 3 Project, spoke on Monday’s episode of “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” about Biden’s “lawfare” campaign against Trump. “President Biden’s fingerprints are directly on all four of these criminal prosecutions,” Davis claimed. “This is a criminal conspiracy by President Biden, his White House staff, his attorney general, his Justice Department, and these Democrat AGs in New York and Arizona, and these Democrat [district attorneys] in New York City and Fulton County, Georgia.” He continued, “They are violating the civil rights of President Trump, his co-defendant Walt Nauta, his 18 co-defendants in the Georgia case, these defendants in Arizona — this is a criminal conspiracy to violate their civil rights for the purpose of interfering in the election.”

“They waited 30 months to bring these unprecedented indictments. They timed — they tried to time — these trials back-to-back-to-back in 2024 during the heat of the presidential campaign. They wanted President Trump stuck in a courtroom like they’ve done in New York City,” Davis explained. Referring to how the “lawfare” campaign has impacted the Biden campaign, he added, “Now the rats are swimming back to the ship because it looks like this lawfare is backfiring spectacularly on these Democrats, including President Biden. It’s going to propel President Trump back into the White House, and I don’t think that’s what the Democrats intended.”

According to April’s Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, a majority of voters agreed that the prosecutions leveled against Trump are biased, unfair, and politically-motivated. Fifty-six percent of voters (including 57% of Independent voters and over a quarter of Democrats) said that the prosecutions against Trump are “politically motivated,” up from a steady 54% throughout March, February, and January.

A survey from McLaughlin and Associates, published in March, found that nearly 70% of Americans agree that the indictments and prosecution leveled against Trump are politically motivated, with almost 60% of voters (including almost 40% of Democrats) saying that Biden has played a role in the Trump prosecutions, 52% of voters saying that the “lawfare” campaign is designed to keep the 45th president from returning to the White House, and 56% of voters (including a third of Democrats) saying that Biden is trying “to stop President Trump from winning the election by putting him in jail…”

Other polls suggest that this may be true, with Trump taking a significant lead over Biden. For example, an Emerson College/The Hill survey released on Tuesday shows Trump besting Biden in seven swing states. Trump leads Biden in North Carolina by five points, in Arizona by four points, in Georgia by three points, in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin by two points, and in Michigan and Nevada by one point. The survey also found that a plurality of voters across all seven swing states believe the trial being conducted against Trump in New York City “is a witch hunt.” In only one state, Nevada, a narrow majority (51%) of voters said that the trial “is appropriate to hold Trump accountable.” The survey also found that if Trump were convicted in that trial, it would either have “no impact” on voters’ support for Trump or else make them “more likely” to vote for him. One third or fewer of voters responded that they would be “less likely” to vote for Trump if convicted.

Davis predicted that the New York City case, under Democratic District Attorney Alvin Bragg, would be the only case against Trump not tossed out by the courts. “The bottom line is this New York City Bragg case, this dog of a case in New York, may be the only case that gets to trial before the election,” Davis opined, adding, “This is their weakest, dumbest case.” Davis anticipated that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on January 6-related cases would result in the cases that Special Counsel Jack Smith is prosecuting against Trump being dropped, and that the court would further rule that Trump could not be prosecuted for official acts during his presidency.

“The American people are going to put President Trump back in the White House on November 5, 2024,” Davis concluded. “And come January 20, 2025, when he is sworn in, there are going to be severe legal, political, and financial consequences for this Democrat lawfare and election interference. These are republic-ending tactics by the Democrats — and there must be consequences.”

Judge Says Fani Willis Must Ditch Nathan Wade Or Step Aside From Trump Case

A judge declined Friday to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the case against former President Donald Trump.

Judge Scott McAfee found that the defendants had “failed to meet their burden of proving that the District Attorney acquired an actual conflict of interest in this case through her personal relationship and recurring travels with her lead prosecutor.” However, he said that the record “highlights a significant appearance of impropriety that infects the current structure of the prosecution team,” stating that Nathan Wade must either withdraw or Willis and her whole office can choose to step aside to solve the problem.

McAfee wrote that disqualifying Willis was not necessary “when a less drastic and sufficiently remedial option is available.”

“The Court therefore concludes that the prosecution of this case cannot proceed until the State selects one of two options,” he wrote. “The District Attorney may choose to step aside, along with the whole of her office, and refer the prosecution to the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council for reassignment. See O.C.G.A. § 15-18-5. Alternatively, SADA Wade can withdraw, allowing the District Attorney, the Defendants, and the public to move forward without his presence or remuneration distracting from and potentially compromising the merits of this case.”

Trump co-defendant Michael Roman alleged in a Jan. 8 motion that Willis financially benefited from awarding her romantic partner Nathan Wade a lucrative contract to work as special prosecutor on the case when he took her on vacations using money earned from his position.

Willis and Wade both denied the relationship began before he was hired, though a long-time friend of Willis, Robin Yeartie, testified that it began in 2019. They claimed the expenses were split roughly equally, with Willis paying him back in cash.

McAfee wrote that an “odor of mendacity remains” about the testimony of Willis and Wade.

“The Court is not under an obligation to ferret out every instance of potential dishonesty from each witness or defendant ever presented in open court,” he wrote. “Yet reasonable questions about whether the District Attorney and her hand-selected lead SADA testified untruthfully about the timing of their relationship further underpin the finding of an appearance of impropriety and the need to make proportional efforts to cure it.”

Steve Sadow, Trump’s lead defense counsel, said in a statement that they will “use all legal options available as we continue to fight to end this case, which should never have been brought in the first place.”

“While respecting the Court’s decision, we believe that the Court did not afford appropriate significance to the prosecutorial misconduct of Willis and Wade, including the financial benefits, testifying untruthfully about when their personal relationship began, as well as Willis’ extrajudicial MLK ‘church speech,’ where she played the race card and falsely accused the defendants and their counsel of racism,” Sadow said.

McAfee’s ruling addressed other grounds defendants used to call for disqualification, including Willis’ failure to disclose gifts from Wade on her financial disclosures and a church speech she gave in January blaming the allegations on race.

He called the speech “legally improper,” noting that this kind of public comment “creates dangerous waters for the District Attorney to wade further into.”

“The time may well have arrived for an order preventing the State from mentioning the case in any public forum to prevent prejudicial pretrial publicity, but that is not the motion presently before the Court,” he wrote.

As for witnesses, McAfee found Yeartie’s testimony raised doubts about the testimony of Willis and Wade but “lacked context and detail.” He found that he could not “place any stock in the testimony of Terrance Bradley,” Wade’s former law partner.

Texts revealed Bradley, who said on the witness stand that he “could not recall” details about their relationship, shared many details with defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant, even suggesting witnesses she could subpoena to confirm them.

“His inconsistencies, demeanor, and generally non-responsive answers left far too brittle a foundation upon which to build any conclusions,” McAfee wrote.

McAfee issued a ruling Wednesday dismissing six of the counts in the indictment that did not offer defendants “enough information to prepare their defenses intelligently.”

After watching ‘Oppenheimer’ I realized that what he went thru in 1954 is what Trump is going thru in 2024

After viewing the Oscar winning best picture “Oppenheimer” I was struck by the similarities between what J. Robert Oppenheimer went thru in 1954 and what President Donald J. Trump is now going thru, 70 years later, in 2024.

WATCH: Nuclear Turning Point: The Birth Of The Atomic Age | The Real Oppenheimer | Timeline

Dr. Oppenheimer, born in New York, NY, was a well respected theoretical physicist. Dr. Oppenheimer because of his expertise was chosen to lead the Manhattan Project that developed the atomic bomb. Dr. Oppenheimer built what has become the Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

Donald J. Trump, born in New York, NY, is a highly successful real estate developer and businessman who owned, managed, or licensed his name to hotels, casinos, golf courses, resorts, and residential properties in the New York City area and around the world. Mr. Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States.

On December 21, 1953, Dr. Oppenheimer was notified of a military security report unfavourable to him and was accused of having associated with communists in the past, of delaying the naming of Soviet agents, and of opposing the building of the hydrogen bomb.

In 2016 members of President Donald J. Trump staff were accused by the Department of Justice of cooperating with Russia. The Robert Mueller special counsel investigation was conducted by special prosecutor Robert Mueller from May 2017 to March 2019. The investigation resulted in roughly three dozen criminal charges, including convictions of a half-dozen Trump associates, and concluded that Russia intervened on the Trump campaign’s behalf and that the campaign welcomed the help [These charges were based upon the Steel Dossier that has be debunked]. The investigation resulted in charges against 34 individuals and 3 companies, 8 guilty pleas, and a conviction at trial. John Durham, the former U.S. Attorney in Connecticut, was appointed in 2019 by then-Attorney General William Barr to lead a review of the genesis of the investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. The investigation became a criminal investigation, though only three people faced criminal action. 

In 1954 a security hearing declared Dr. Oppenheimer not guilty of treason but ruled that he should not have access to military secrets. As a result, his contract as adviser to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission was canceled. The Federation of American Scientists immediately came to his defense with a protest against the trial. Oppenheimer was made the worldwide symbol of the scientist who, while trying to resolve the moral problems that arise from scientific discovery, becomes the victim of a witch hunt. He spent the last years of his life working out ideas on the relationship between science and society.

President Donald J. Trump in a 306-page Mueller final report, the Department of Justice concluded that the FBI did not have enough intelligence to merit a full Trump-Russia investigation. However, Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida was raided by the FBI on August 8, 2022, as part of an investigation into whether he took classified documents with him when he left the White House.

In December 2022, the January 6 committee referred Trump to the Justice Department and recommended four charges: obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., inciting an insurrection and conspiracy to make false statements. This is the first time in history members of Congress have recommended a president for criminal prosecution.

Criminal Charges Against Trump

  1. Special Counsel  Prosecutor Jack Smith Jan 6 Insurrection Case; Judge Tanya Chutkan; U.S. District Court for D.C.
  2. Special Counsel Prosecutor Jack Smith Mar-a-Lago Confidential Docs Case; Judge Aileen Cannon, U.S. District Court for Southern District of FL
  3. DA Alvin Bragg’s New York Case on Falsifying Business Records; Juan Marchan, New York Supreme Court
  4. Fulton County GA DA Fanni Willis Case Conspiracy to engage in racketeering, etc.; Judge Scott McAfee, Fulton City Superior Judge

NOTE: Smith, Bragg, and Willis are all on record as Trump haters.

Civil Charges Against Trump

  1. AG NY Letitia James Case on Defrauding NY Lenders, Insurers; Arthur Engoron, NY State Supreme Court (already found Trump Liable – fined $355 M and Prohibited from doing business in NY for 3 years; must post bond of $355 M to Appeal. Note: James is on record as Trump hater.
  2. Prosecutor Amit Prlyavadan Mehte, US District Court to D.C.; Causing physical and emotional harm to Capitol Police and Lawmakers by inciting riot on Jan 6th in D.C.
  3. Judge Lewis Kaplan, U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York Jean Carroll Defamation Case; (already found Trump Liable despite rape case dismissal) – ordered to pay $83 M to Plaintiff E. Jean Carroll who Trump stated he never met.

NOTE: It is likely that these charges upon appeal will likely be overturned.

It’s ironic how both Dr. Oppenheimer and President Donald J. Trump have suffered under a corrupt and politically motived legal witch hunts.

Final Note

In 1963 U.S. Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson presented Oppenheimer with the Enrico Fermi Award of the Atomic Energy Commission. Oppenheimer retired from the Institute for Advanced Study in 1966 and died of throat cancer the following year.

In 2024, President Donald J. Trump is now the GOP nominee for a second term in the White House. As Trump said, “Winning is my revenge.”

It Was All Arranged and Controlled to Achieve a Desired Overall Effect to Undermine the MAGA Movement

The truth always comes out. We reported from day one of the Democrat’s J6 Special Committee that this was nothing more than a Soviet style show trial to discredit their political opponents.

The J6 Committee members had access to all of the footage of what happened on January 6th, 2020 in the U.S. Capitol building.

Rather than tell the truth they created the myth that the MAGA movement was made up of “insurrectionists.”

Because of the J6 lies two women died and many patriots have been wrongfully imprisoned.

In an article titled Tucker Carlson Outlines Review of Capitol Hill J6 CCTV Tapes and Publicizes Footage  Sundance reports,

As promised, Fox News host Tucker Carlson began publicizing the closed-circuit TV footage from Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.  In the introduction to the footage, Mr Carlson outlines the process and limitations that his producers encountered.

Tucker Carlson states no one from the House of Representatives placed any restrictions on the footage as reviewed. Additionally, Carlson notes that no one at Fox News leadership had any input into the review that his team undertook.  As he describes, much of the 40,000 hours of footage was innocuous, empty rooms with CCTV camera footage showing very little.  However, the footage that did show events, does not support the “violent insurrectionist” narrative as promoted by the J6 committee.


Here is another lie that was created from whole cloth by the J6 Committee and then broadcast by the White House, legacy media and social media platforms. It involved the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.

On January 6th, 2023 in an NPR article titled Trump and two rioters are sued over the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick Juliana Kim reported,

The longtime partner of a U.S. Capitol Police officer who died following the Jan. 6. insurrection has sued former President Donald Trump and two rioters for wrongful death.

Sandra Garza, who is representing the estate of Brian Sicknick, claims her partner’s death was “a direct and foreseeable consequence” of Trump’s words that day. She also assigns liability to Julian Elie Khater and George Pierre Tanios, two men accused of assaulting Sicknick with chemical spray during the breach.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Washington, came a day before the second anniversary of the attack. The suit seeks at least $10 million in damages from each of the defendants.


Officer Sicknick died of a heart attack. Not from any injuries or actions of those who were allowed in by the Capitol Police on January 6th, 2021.

There were also Antifa members dressed up as MAGA patriots at the J6 rally in Washington, D.C.


The Bottom Line

The Democrats have since 2016 worked every angle to discredit the MAGA movement in general and President Donald J. Trump in particular. Their efforts began with the false Russia collusion gambit, which has been proven false and made up by the FBI. This was followed by the quid pro quo myth which lead to the impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

The fact is that colluding with Russia and Ukraine and all now know quid pro quo activities involved the Biden family and Democrats.

It now obvious that the traitors in our government form all parties are bent towards lying, cheating and, yes, stealing elections.

QUESTION: How will the traitors steal the Presidential Election in 2024?

ANSWER: Using all proven means available.

We listed the traitor “Dirty Dozen” strategies to steal the 2024 Presidential Election:

  1. Dirty Voter Rolls. There are many states where the voter rolls have not been cleansed of dead people, those who have moved out of state and those who vote in more than one state. Christopher Wright in a column titled Stupid Voter Role Tricks wrote, “Election integrity activists are placing renewed emphasis on cleaning up the voter rolls, and here’s why:  no matter what scheme the Democrats come up with to steal elections, at the end of the day they still have to find enough records of voters who haven’t voted to put in enough fake votes to change the results of the election…About 8 percent of the population moves any given year.  That’s a lot of voter records just waiting to be picked.  The more voters on the rolls who are guaranteed not to vote, the easier it is for the Democrats to commit election fraud, plain and simple… Judicial Watch sued Democrat-run New York City and got a settlement requiring the city to remove over 440,000 ineligible names from the voter rolls and to maintain the rolls in the future.  The city had only removed 22 names in the previous six years which is preposterous for a city of five and a half million people…Judicial Watch and another group filed another lawsuit to clean up the rolls in Los Angeles.  The suit concluded successfully with Democrat-controlled L.A. County removing 1.2 million ineligible voters from the rolls.  The County sent notices to 1.6 million inactive voters who had not voted in two successive federal elections.  The County revealed that 643,000 voters stayed on the rolls despite not voting for at least ten years, more inactive voters than anywhere else in the country.  Yet, there they were, just waiting for the Democrats to make it look like they voted.”
  2. Mail-in-Ballots. Mail-in-Ballots came into vogue during the Covid pandemic. Many states, with the help of some like Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg, sent out millions of ballots to addresses regardless of that person’s eligibility to vote. The Last Refuge wrote, “Since the advent of ballot centric focus through mail-in and collection drop-off processes, votes have become increasingly less valuable amid the organizers who wish to control election outcomes. As a direct and specific result, ballot distribution, assembly, collection and return has become the key to Democrat party success. The effort to attain votes for candidates is less important than the strategy of collecting ballots.”
  3. Mules. True The Vote found that mail-in-ballot drop boxes were used to change the 2020 election. Mules, people who delivered ballots of a questionable nature were filmed dropping these mail-in-ballots in the dead of night. True The Vote in its video exposé 2000 Mules showed how easy it was to commit election fraud in just five counties in five states that flipped the 2020 election from Trump to Biden.
  4. Ballot Harvesting. William Hamilton in a 2022 article titled Ballot Harvesting: How Democracies Perish wrote, “Judging from so many disputed elections and the resulting court cases, there is ample evidence to doubt the outcomes of the 2020 and 2022 elections. The easiest way to understand the overall strategy of the 2020 election is to read Molly Ball’s general explanation in the February 4, 2021 issue of Time Magazine. An accurate title would be: ‘How the Progs Harvested, Manipulated, and Cast Enough Votes to Win.’ Instead, Molly Ball wrote, ‘The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.’ You decide. The Prog victory in 2020, such as it was, rested on the usual ineptitude of many Secretaries of State, the usual failures of the U.S. Post Office, improvements in ‘flaps and seals’ technology, the pandemic-induced flood of mail-in ballots, thousands of unmonitored ballot boxes, the advent of computer software and sophisticated printers capable of producing virtually undetectable counterfeit ballots, the hacking of some voting systems, and most importantly the money to train and hire an army of foot soldiers to pillage unprotected ballot boxes, to go door-to-door, to go to senior centers and nursing homes with offers to ‘help’ homeowners and senior citizens understand complex ballot issues and — here’s the key — to allow the harvesters to gain physical possession of millions of ballots.”
  5. Ranked Choice Voting. In ranked-choice voting, voters get to rank their candidates in order of preference. In other words, you can say who your first-choice candidate would be, followed by the next best candidate, and so on down the list. If a candidate receives more than half of the first-choice votes in the election, that candidate wins—exactly as they would in any other election. If there’s no majority winner (for instance, if the first-choice winner would only represent 43% of the total votes) then the race is decided by an “instant runoff.” Whichever candidate has the fewest votes is eliminated; voters who had chosen that candidate as their first choice have their second choice counted instead. This process goes on until a winner representing more than half of the vote emerges. The Bongino Report reported, “What happens when you combine an all-in or “jungle” primary with ranked-choice voting in the general election? Putting the two modern “innovations” on elections together in Alaska produced this absurd result, in which Republicans lost a House seat despite getting 60% of the vote.”
  6. [S]election Code. [S]ELECTION CODE has released video exposé on the 2020 election. According to their website stating, “You’ve heard it said ‘Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.’ What about those who code the vote?” Here is your free download of [S]election code CLICK HERE or copy this link: https://fs-cdn.frankspeech.com/files/vid/SelectionCode.mp4.
  7. Electronic Voting Machines. Those counties with electronic voting machines experienced serious errors in both the 2020 Presidential and the 2022 midterm elections. Dominion and electronic voting machines were, after forensic reviews, found to have either failed to count ballots for a candidate and or flipped the vote from one candidate to another candidate. On November 12, 2022 President Donald J. Trump wrote, “So in Maricopa County (AZ) they’re at it again. Voting Machines in large numbers didn’t work, but only in Republican districts. People were forced to wait for hours, then got exhausted or had other things to do and left the voting lines by the thousands. Even Kari Lake was taken to a Liberal Democrat district in order to vote. Others weren’t so luckily. This is a scam and voter fraud, no different than stuffing the ballot boxes. They stole the Electron (sic) from Blake Masters. Do Election over again!” Christopher Wright wrote, “[T]hey keep telling us these machines don’t have modems and can’t connect to the Internet, but a watchdog group in Wisconsin found this is a complete lie.  Machines used in the 2020 elections were connected to a nongovernmental IP address called WiscNet in three separate elections, including November 3, 2020. “
  8. Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). In the article ERIC: The Worm That Got Inside Our Elections Christopher Wright wrote, “Grassroots activists continue to raise questions about ERIC, the Electronic Registration Information Center, and authorities are beginning to respond. On the face of things, ERIC is a private organization that helps its 32 member states clean up and maintain their voter rolls.  It compares state voter registration data against motor vehicle licensing information and the Social Security master death file.  Then it tells states which voters are dead, have moved out of state, or are registered to vote in more than one state.  Critics say ERIC is, at root, nothing more than a partisan get-out-the-vote drive for Democrats. Louisiana withdrew from ERIC last month, citing ‘concerns raised by citizens, government watchdog organizations and media reports about potential questionable funding sources and that possibly partisan actors may have access to ERIC network data for political purposes.’ More recently, Alabama left ERIC.  The new Secretary of State said he did not want a private group having access to voter data, including driver’s license numbers, contact information, and partial social security numbers including those of minors. In addition to partisan connections and privacy concerns, critics also say ERIC does a bad job, producing bloated voter rolls in member states.  Florida, for example, is a member of ERIC but has more than 100 percent of all possible citizens of voting age on its rolls.”
  9. Campaign Finance Mules. The Gateway Pundit in an article titled “Campaign Finance Mules” Identified in Georgia Senate Race – Democrat Raphael Warnock Received Over $24 Million from Hundreds of UNEMPLOYED Donors Giving Over 358,000 Donations reported, “They say ‘Follow The Money’. So we did, and found a massive number of “Campaign Finance Mules” making hundreds, even thousands of donations per year. NBC recently reported on the donations received in the Georgia runoff for Senator. Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock raised $52.2 million for his re-election between Oct. 20 through Nov. 16, more than doubling the fundraising total of his opponent, Republican Herschel Walker. Warnock, the top fundraising federal candidate of the 2022 election cycle by a long-shot, spent $39.2 million over the same period, which almost doubled Walker’s spend too. The incumbent closed the period with $29.7 million banked away. Walker still raised a significant amount over that fundraising period — $20.9 million. His campaign spent $16.5 million and closed with $9.8 million on hand.”
  10. Growing Influence of Non-Profits in U.S. Elections.  in an article titled The Left’s New Scheme That Threatens Free Elections reported, “Like a bad movie sequel, leftwing nonprofits like the Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL) are once again pumping millions of dollars in left-wing “dark money” into election offices across the country. Just like they did in 2020, these groups are looking for ways to skew elections and boost liberal turnout in battleground states. But this time, there’s a twist. CTCL and its allies aren’t just doling out eye-popping grants. They are aiming for nothing less than a shadow takeover of election offices. Through their new $80 million program, called the “U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence,” the left is targeting local election offices. The goal: push liberal voting policies and systematically reshape how our elections are run. Voters need only to look to the contentious 2020 election cycle to appreciate the significance of this program. That year, Mark Zuckerberg pledged more than $400 million to support election offices during the pandemic. But he didn’t give the money to election offices directly. Instead, he gave the funds to left-wing nonprofits like CTCL. CTCL then directed these “Zuck Bucks” disproportionately to cities and counties that voted Democratic.”
  11. The Growing Influence of Foreign Actors in U.S. Elections.  in an article titled Chinese Operatives Ran A Massive TikTok Campaign To Help Dems In The Midterm Elections reported, “TikTok accounts operating as voices of Chinese state media promoted messages that appeared to denigrate Republican candidates and favor Democratic ones ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, according to a Forbes investigation. While the Chinese-owned social media app has verbally affirmed the need to crack down on election disinformation and foreign interference, several news-oriented accounts failed to disclose their affiliation with Chinese Communist Party (CCP) state-owned media on the platform, Forbes found. The accounts racked up tens of millions views on posts that covered divisive topics, such as abortion and race, as well as critical clips that mostly targeted Republican candidates ahead of the 2022 midterms. ‘This opens a new dimension for conversation about TikTok,’ Conor Healy, director of government research at surveillance research group IPVM, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The accounts are managed by MediaLinks TV, which registered as a foreign agent for China with the Treasury Department in 2019 and distributes the U.S. branch of China Central Television (CCTV), CGTN, according to the company’s LinkedIn page. MediaLinks also operates the CCTV and CGTN apps, according to Apple.”
  12. The Legacy Media, Social Media, FBI, CIA, DoD, Et al. Election Propaganda Machine. In a  column titled TWITTER FILES: FBI, CIA, DoD, Et al. Actively Worked With EVERY Social Media Platform to Control and Censor Speech reported, “The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA. The government was in constant contact not just with Twitter but with virtually every major tech firm. We live in a surveillance state.”

Governors must dedicate themselves to their people and empower them to make decisions that are right for themselves, their families and the community. The key word is responsibility. Taking responsibility for one’s actions is key and this ends up in how elections are conducted and their consequences.

Live free or die” is not just a slogan it’s the truth! Today telling the truth has become a revolutionary act.

Please share this column with your family, friends your elected leaders from school boards, to the City and County Commissions, to your State Legislators to your Governor, to your member of Congress in Washington, D.C. and on your social media sites.

The Radical Ties of the Imam Behind the Trump Immigration Lawsuit by Jordan Schachtel

Originally published in the Conservative Review, March 10, 2017:

The plaintiff listed in Hawaii’s lawsuit against President Trump’s executive order on immigration is a member of an organization that has several current and former leaders tied to terrorist activity.

Dr. Ismail Elshikh — the imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii — is suing Trump in reaction to the second version of his immigration moratorium, which was signed on Monday. The order imposed a 90-day hold on foreign nationals from six terror-tied countries from entering the United States.

According to the Muslim Association of Hawaii website, Imam Elshikh is a member of the North American Imam Federation (NAIF), a fringe Islamic organization that has a board and current leadership stacked with radical Islamic connections.

Kyle Shideler, a terrorism expert and director of the Threat Information Office at the Center for Security Policy, tells CR that it’s concerning that Imam Elshikh is a part of NAIF.

“Given NAIF’s history it should come as no surprise that the end goal of this lawsuit is, ultimately, weakening American counter-terrorism or immigration security efforts,” Shideler said.

He added: “That a member of an organization whose leaders have included a convicted war criminal, an individual who defended donating money to a Hamas linked charity, and an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism bombing wants to tell the American people who they can admit for immigration should say a lot about why such an executive order is needed in the first place.”

Steven Emerson, the executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, also voiced his concerns about Elshikh’s associations. He tells CR:

“NAIF is an extremely radical Islamist group whose leaders and members have defended some of the most violent terrorist groups in the world. Some members have been found to be actually linked to acts of Islamist terrorism. This is a group, some prosecutors have argued, whose incitement for violence could qualify their categorization as a providing material support for terrorism.”

Current NAIF board members include the former leader of an al-Qaeda-connected mosque and a radical preacher. Former leaders include a man convicted of leading an international death squad, and a prominent Islamist preacher who has praised Osama bin Laden.

Current NAIF leadership

Omar Shahin, a current board member of NAIF, is the former president of the Islamic Center of Tucson, a mosque that was once utilized as the “de-facto al-Qaeda headquarters in the United States,” according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism. As imam of the mosque, Shahin raised funds for the Holy Land Foundation, which was later shut down for funneling money to the terrorist group Hamas. He also held fundraisers for the Global Relief Foundation, which was later deemed by the U.S. Treasury Department to be connected to al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

El Shikh received his PhD from the Graduate Theological Foundation Islamic Studies Department, which is headed by Shahin. The program was created in collaboration with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization that was started as a Muslim Brotherhood front group.

Dr. Waleed Meneese, another NAIF board member, has explicitly called for fellow Muslims to kill Jews. “When the Children of Israel returned to cause corruption in the time of our Prophet Muhammad,” Meneese said in a recent sermon. “And they disbelieved him, God destroyed him at his hand. In any case, God Almighty has promised them destruction whenever they cause corruption,” he said of the Jewish people.

Meneese has also called for the killing of apostates from Islam, and for the treating of non-Muslims as second-class citizens.

Former NAIF leadership

Ashrafuzzaman Khan is the former president of NAIF and a current leader at the Muslim Brotherhood-connected Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). In 2013, he was tried in a Bangladesh court as he was accused of drafting a kill list of intellectuals inside the country. He was charged with 11 counts of war crimes as the alleged leader of the Al-Badr death squad. In 2013, he and an accomplice were sentenced in absentia for the abduction and murder of 18 people, including nine university professors, six journalists, and three physicians.

Egyptian cleric Wagdi Ghoneim was the chairman of NAIF at the turn of the century. In 2005, he agreed to deportation to Qatar after U.S. authorities were concerned about his potential connections to terrorist organizations. Ghoneim has called Osama bin Laden a “martyred heroic mujahid” and is now closely tied to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. He has been banned from entering several countries due to his radicalism.

Another former NAIF board member is Siraj Wahhaj, who was infamously listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Wahhaj testified in defense of the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, who served a life sentence for being the mastermind behind terrorist plots in the United States.

What else?

The North American Imam Federation is perhaps best known as the group that allegedly planned and staged the “flying imams” incident. After a 2006 NAIF conference, several imams connected to the group were booted from a domestic flight after exhibiting bizarre, threatening behavior, terrifying fellow passengers. NAIF and the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) showcased the incident as a prime example of America’s supposed problem with “Islamophobia.”

President Trump’s immigration moratorium, blocking non-citizens from coming into the U.S. from the six terror havens of Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Libya, will go into effect next week, barring a successful legal challenge by Elshikh and Hawaii or other actors.

‘Clock Boy’ lawsuit dismissed — Victory for Freedom of Speech

Washington, D.C. — The Center for Security Policy commended today the judiciary of Texas for upholding that state’s commitment to freedom of speech by dismissing a frivolous lawsuit aimed at punishing the Center for Security Policy and its Executive Vice President, Jim Hanson for exercising that constitutional right.

The suit alleging defamation was brought last year by Mohammed Mohammed, the father of Ahmed, widely known as the “Clock Boy,” after the latter brought a clock device resembling a bomb to his school in 2016.  It sought damages from the Center and its EVP in response to public statements made by Mr. Hanson, a former Green Beret, noting the resemblance of the younger Mohammed’s self-declared “invention” to a bomb.  The plaintiffs also took exception to Mr. Hanson’s opinions regarding the potential motivations of the Mohammed family and Islamist groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) that actively promoted the Clock Boy’s claims that he was a victim of discrimination and Islamophobia.

Fortunately, a Texas statute prohibits Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP), thereby protecting free speech and citizens’ right to speak their minds without having to defend themselves in court.

Upon learning that, as recommended by the Center’s counsel, the American Freedom Law Center, District Court Judge Maricela Moore had dismissed the suit, Jim Hanson observed:

This ruling reaffirms our most fundamental liberty – the right to free expression – and punishes Mr. Mohammed and his allies for attempting to suppress ideas they oppose.  The Center for Security Policy will continue to stand firm against all attempts by individuals and groups like CAIR that seek through lawfare and other means to prohibit any criticism of totalitarian Islamist doctrine and to brand as Islamophobes those who point out their efforts. Shutting down free speech is anti-constitutional and un-American.

The Center for Security Policy recently released a book establishing the ties between the Council on American Islamic Relations and one of the world’s most notorious terrorist groups: CAIR is Hamas: How the Federal Government Proved the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Front for Terrorism.  The monograph may be downloaded for free at www.SecureFreedom.org.

Muslim Lawfare against America: How it can be Fought

In Offensive and Defensive Lawfare: Fighting Civilization Jihad in America’s Courts, David Yerushalmi, Esq., Director of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and General Counsel for the Center for Security Policy, and AFLC co-founder Robert J. Muise, Esq. describe the use by our Islamic supremacist enemies of U.S. jurisprudence to compel submission to the doctrine they call shariah. As with so many other facets of the Muslim Brotherhood’s stealthy, pre-violent jihad against this country, most of us are unaware that such lawfare is taking place, let alone with such deleterious effects.

Even more importantly, Messrs. Yerushalmi and Muise lay out their recommendations for an offensive strategy to defend the U.S. Constitution and the rights it guarantees our countrymen and women from any further encroachment by Islamic law. In stark contrast to the longstanding use of such techniques to intimidate or suppress freedom-loving peoples, offensive lawfare against the Brotherhood and its ilk is a relatively nascent area of the law, in which the authors are true pioneers and formidable innovators.

Center for Security Policy President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. said on the occasion of the publication of the latest monograph in the Center’s Civilization Jihad Reader Series:

“In Offensive and Defensive Lawfare, David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, have added to the great service they perform for the nation every day through their public interest law firm’s pro bono representation of exponents of religious and other freedoms. We hope that this treatment of their battle space – with its clear depiction of the Islamic supremacists’ lawfare and insights into how this front of the civilization jihad can best be countered – will inspire many other accomplished litigators to join the authors in this fight.”
