THE BIG LIE: In a Blatant Disregard for the Truth, Far-Left and Mainstream Media Claim No Election ‘Irregularities’ in Arizona

By Joe Hoft
Published October 10, 2021 at 3:05pm

Garbage far-left and Mainstream Media claim there were no ‘irregularities’ found in the audit of the 2020 Election results from Maricopa County.

These claims are simply not true.


Far-left media outlet Slate claimed on Thursday that there was “no evidence of election irregularities” in the audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 Election results.

This is simply false.
Is it any surprise that two of the main authors of the partisan election review in Arizona didn’t even show up to Thursday’s hearing by the House Oversight Committee to investigate their report? The so-called audit in Maricopa County found no evidence of election irregularities and even turned up more votes for President Joe Biden. But that hasn’t stopped the review’s leaders from suggesting Trump won in Arizona. Yet on Thursday, two leaders of the Cyber Ninjas investigation thought it better to stay home than to testify under oath that their review signaled a win for the former president.
Attacks like this by the far-left online site are typical of Big Media’s attention to the Maricopa audit. However, last night President Trump had a different interpretation of the results of the audit in Arizona, sharing:

The Thursday House hearing of the Arizona Election Scam turned sharply against the Democrats when Congressman Andy Biggs and others started asking questions about all the damning findings of the audit and the people for Maricopa County were unable to give an answer. It was incredible.

They could not answer why they deleted and moved election data after they received a subpoena, or why they have never delivered chain of custody documents for millions of ballots. Congressman Andrew Clyde exposed the Democrats’ “Big Lie” that Biden “won” the recount, because no matter how many times you count counterfeit money, “you may have 100 pieces of paper in your pocket, but you sure don’t have $100 dollars in legal tender.”
The hearing exposed how numerous laws were broken during the Arizona voting, how blank mail-in ballot envelopes were approved, and how there are tens of thousands of suspected fraudulent ballots.
The Fake News, however, refuses to cover those questions and answers because they prove, without question, that we won Arizona (and many other states).
The problem for the dishonest, far-left media is that nearly 700,000 ballots from the 2020 Election in Maricopa County have issues.

You see, when liberal, far-left garbage websites and the Mainstream media claim there was no evidence of irregularities, they are either misinformed or biased to the point of dishonesty.

Democrats press forward with non-citizen voting as Vermont emerges as newest battleground
Cities in at least three states have authorized foreign citizens to vote, while Georgia ponders a constitutional amendment to ban it.

Updated: October 10, 2021 - 10:47pm

Democrats continue to press in liberal states to authorize non-citizens to vote, with two Vermont cities becoming the latest flashpoint in a legal and political battle that will define who may legally cast ballots in the future.

The cities of Montpelier and Winooski, both with populations under 8,000, have approved allowing non-citizens to cast ballots in municipal elections for mayor, city council and school board after Vermont's Legislature this summer overrode GOP governor Phil Scott's veto of a bill allowing non-citizen voting in those communities.

Scott opposes a town-by-town approach, warning it will create inconsistency in the state. "We can't do this piecemeal because the approach that Winooski took was different from the approach that Montpelier had taken so we just need it all the same so there is no confusion," he said when he issued the veto.

Other Republicans believe it shouldn't be done at all.

"The Vermont Constitution requires U.S. citizenship as a qualification of voting," the Republican National Committee, the state GOP and several citizens argued in lawsuits filed last month challenging both communities' plans.

Congress voted in 1996 to prohibit non-citizens from voting in federal elections, but state constitutions vary on the issue, opening the door for some communities with diverse populations to push the envelope.

Vermont, however, is an unusual entrant to the debate after much larger, mixed-population cities like San Francisco, Chicago and New York entered the fray.

Vermont is mostly white with less than 6% of its population foreign-born, census figures show.

But its move, coupled with other states dabbling with similar ideas, has Republican leaders in some states seeking to change their constitutions to forever ban noncitizen voting to keep future Democrat-controlled legislatures from lowering the threshold just by passing a law.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger recently proposed such an amendment to his state's constitution, picking a new battle with his longtime nemesis, progressive voting activist Stacey Abrams.

"From New York City to San Francisco, more and more extreme liberal jurisdictions are extending voting to non-citizens," he told Just the News. "Citizens-only voting has overwhelming bipartisan support.

"Like with commonsense election integrity measures like voter ID, Stacey Abrams and her allies seem to be the only ones at odds with American people," he added. "That is why I'm fighting for a citizens-only voting amendment to the Georgia constitution."

Voting experts see a slow but steady trend in liberal states.

"Non-citizens are slowly gaining voting rights," the Pew Charitable Trusts declared in a recent report on the trend.

In addition to the Vermont towns, Pew noted that San Francisco, nine cities in Maryland and two communities in Massachusetts have all approved noncitizen voting, although the latter are still awaiting state legislative approval.

Now Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles are also moving forward with plans to allow foreign citizens to vote in local U.S. elections, Pew added.

Democratic state Sen. Celina Villanueva is leading the charge in Illinois to allow foreign citizens living in the state to vote in school board elections.

"We're essentially doing taxation without representation," she was quoted recently as saying. "We have a large population of non-citizens in this state and throughout this country and they should have their voices heard, especially when it comes to the education of their children."

On the flip side, voters in Alabama, Florida, Colorado and North Dakota have voted to amend their state constitutions to mandate ballots be cast only by U.S. citizens. Maine attempted a similar amendment movement but failed earlier this year.

The GOP sees opposing noncitizen voting as a winning issue, vowing to fight it in every community in America where it is attempted.

"Democrats are trying to dismantle the integrity of our elections," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said recently. "In addition to attacking widely supported safeguards like voter ID, Democrats also want foreign citizens to vote in American elections. Republicans are fighting back on this far-left assault against election integrity. Unlike radical Democrats, we believe that our elections should be decided solely by American citizens."

POSTED ON OCTOBER 10, 2021 BY PAUL MIRENGOFF IN 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, LAW, LEFTISM

BAR COMPLAINTS, THE LEFT’S LATEST TACTIC FOR SILENCING OPPONENTS

Steve has mentioned the bar complaint filed against John Eastman for the legal advice he provided in support of Donald Trump’s effort to stop Joe Biden from becoming president. Christian Adams has written what I consider a powerful takedown of this attempt to punish Eastman for providing legal advice that anti-Trumpers disagree with on a subject they are passionate about.

A similar thing is happening to Jeff Clark, the former assistant attorney general who pushed unsuccessfully to put the weight of the Justice Department behind resistance to Biden’s ascension to the presidency. A group of D.C. attorneys has filed a bar complaint against Clark for his efforts.

The Hill describes those who signed the complaint against Jeff as “a group of legal heavyweights.” That’s an exaggeration, as you can probably tell just from reading the credentials the signatories list in the complaint.

Frankly, given the contempt in which genuine legal heavyweights in D.C. hold Trump, I was surprised not to see a more impressive list. Maybe the real heavyweights were put off by the idea of using bar complaints to punish those who take unpopular position. I hope that’s still a possibililty. Maybe they found no merit in the substance of the complaint.

I find none, but that’s a subject for another post. For now, I just want to flag this new tactic being used against respected — albeit misguided in this instance — conservative attorneys. I consider it dangerous and likely to spread, if not nipped in the bud in these two cases.

As Christian Adams says in his article about Eastman, and as the left loves to say when attorneys are making bad arguments in favor of their causes:
[O]ur judicial system needs more lawyers like John Adams and fewer cowards. John Eastman represented a client unpopular to some and made arguments that were anchored to his interpretation of the Constitution. No matter your feelings on the 2020 election, the swarm directed against him is more dangerous to our Republic than anything he is accused of doing.
When the left comes up with a too-clever-by-a-half tactic like this one, there is often the possibility that the same tactic will be turned against it. In the case of bar complaints, however, the left has nothing to fear.

State bar organizations are controlled by the left in many states. Even in red states, these outfits tend not to tilt conservative. It is highly unlikely that attorneys who make bad, push-the-envelope arguments on behalf of left-liberal causes or clients will be punished by a state bar.

I hope John Eastman and Jeff Clark have nothing to fear from the California and D.C. bars, respectively. But I’m not fully confident they don’t.

More Than Half of Americans Believe Cheating Tainted the 2020 Presidential Election and the Number of Americans Who Believe This Is Increasing

By Joe Hoft
Published October 11, 2021 at 4:14pm


Americans know that Biden cheated to win the 2020 Election. It was the only way he could win.

In late October 2020 we predicted President Trump would win the 2020 Election. We based this in part on the results of the rallies each candidate had leading up to the election. President Trump ultimately had 1.1 million attendees at his rallies to Joe Biden’s less than 2,000 attendees. This was going to be a runaway election.

But we underestimated the amount of corruption embedded in the election. Big Media giants, Big Tech, the DOJ and FBI, the Democrats, and many Republicans were in on it. The election was stolen. But Americans knew it. In April, most of America knew the election was stolen.

Again in August, Americans were polled and knew the election was tainted.

Now today another election poll shows that more than half of Americans believe the election was stolen. The results of a Rasmussen poll were released that show more Americans believe the election was tainted today that a few months ago.

Newmax reports:
A majority of likely voters believe cheating tainted President Joe Biden’s victory over former President Donald Trump in last year’s election, a new Rasmussen Reports survey found.
A total of 56% of respondents are convinced “it’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election,” Rasmussen Reports said. That included 41% who said it was “very likely.”
Thirty-nine percent (39%) said it wasn’t likely the election was affected by cheating.
In April, 51% said Biden’s election was tainted by cheating — so the latest results show a 5% increase.
If you don’t believe Joe Biden stole the 2020 Election then you either live in a hole, are too biased to consider it, or are too daft to understand it.

AZ State Rep. Receives Illegal Mail-In Ballot For 2021 Local Election – “Something Ain’t Right” …UPDATE: Hobbs Is At It Again

By Jordan Conradson
Published October 11, 2021 at 12:15pm

The Maricopa County 2021 Local Election is already showing the same signs of mail-in voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 election.

Arizona State Representative Travis Grantham reported that he has received a mail-in ballot for his sister who “hasn’t lived, voted or paid taxes here for 15 years.”.

Liz Harris’s canvassing efforts found that this happens far too often to just be a coincidence.

Grantham’s sister moved to California but she continues to receive ballots at her parents’ address.

Rep. Grantham says that if mail-in voting is not cleaned up, it needs to be removed.
Grantham: My sister hasn’t lived, voted or paid taxes here for 15 years. She votes in CA. Yet somehow she’s registered to vote and keeps getting ballots at my parents address!
I wonder if anyone votes in her name on Election Day? Mail in voting either needs to get cleaned up or go away.

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer ran on fixing these issues and combating the fraud that the “incompetent criminal” Adrian Fontes and corrupt Secretary of State Katie Hobbs committed in prior elections.

Instead of fixing the issues, he spent almost a year fighting the Arizona audit and election integrity efforts, while working as a news correspondent for CNN.

He responded to this Tweet by blaming the confused family.

1633988487768.png

“Something ain’t right.”, said Grantham after reporting that the Democratic Party continues to try to register this out of state voter.

All unredacted evidence from the September 24th audit presentation and plenty more evidence of criminal wrongdoing have been presented to the Arizona Attorney General.


Something ain’t right and Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich needs to open a criminal investigation before they steal another election.

These fraudulent Arizona electors canceled out the voice of another state. This is a nationwide issue.

Contact Brnovich now and demand he protect our right to vote no matter what state you live in.



Contact Arizona AG Mark Brnovich

UPDATE– Hobbs is at it again…
From a concerned reader:
I’m a recently registered PC for the Republican Party in (LD-12) Arizona. I received notification that my mail is ballot is due to be delivered today. Oddly, when I registered on the corrupt SOS Katie Hobbs site, I specifically stated I will be voting in-person only and oped out of any form of mail-in voting. I voted in person for every election in AZ since moving here in 2013. Likewise, my wife, who also voted in person in the 2020 election never had her vote counted for the last election. Hobbs and corrupt BOS are at it again! Please keep up your reporting on this. Happy to provide a photo of my mail-in ballot when it arrives this afternoon.
It is reported that this election is 100% by mail but they are still fraudulently sending these ballots.

We need to fix or eradicate mail-in ballots.

BREAKING: Arizona Attorney General Fires Off Letter to Secretary of State — Demands Documents Based on Forensic Audit Results

By Jim Hoft
Published October 11, 2021 at 5:09pm


The Gateway Pundit determined last week that following the AZ Senate Audit nearly 700,000 ballots in Maricopa County had issues as identified in the audit and canvassing of the county.

These issues are not likely mutually exclusive but give a very good indication that the 2020 Election in Arizona was full of tens of thousands of invalid ballots.




We’ve put together our updated list of issues identified over the past few weeks related to the 2020 Election in Arizona. After the canvassing and the audit reports were finalized, we’ve identified nearly 700,000 ballots at issue (which may not be mutually exclusive).

The largest issue reported was related to early voting files which do not include early votes included in the final voted file.



The second-largest issue we noted in the Cyber Ninja report included 86,000 ballots where the insureds have no related fingerprints at all, which in this day and age seems very unlikely.

Cyber Ninja’s in their report also listed more than 57,000 issues in ballots in various areas.

On Monday Jennifer Wright the Arizona Assistant Attorney General fired off a letter to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office requesting information related to registration list maintenance in the State of Arizona.

The Attorney General is starting his investigation.

AMERICAN STASI UPDATE: FBI Raids Home of Local Proud Boys Chapter President in Delaware at 4 AM with More than a Dozen Agents and Battering Ram – Handcuff His Girlfriend

By Jim Hoft
Published October 11, 2021 at 5:49pm

This is the end of democracy.

Being a Trump supporter is now a federal crime and the FBI will raid your home in the middle of the night.

No one is safe in Obama-Biden’s America.


The FBI raided the home of a Proud Boy local chapter president in the middle of the night on Friday. They brought over a dozen agents in riot gear and a battering ram. They handcuffed Aaron Wolkind and his girlfriend and demanded they exit their home.

Wolkind was not arrested.


PennLive reported:

The FBI raided the home of the vice president of the Proud Boys’ Philadelphia chapter on Friday, seizing his computer, phone and other electronics to gather information on the Jan. 6 attack at the U.S. Capitol, his lawyer said Monday.
Aaron Whallon Wolkind, 37, woke up around 4 a.m. Friday to more than a dozen federal agents, dressed in riot gear and accompanied by an armored vehicle and battering ram, swarming his Newark, Delaware, home, and ordering through a loudspeaker that he exit with his hands in the air, his lawyer Jonathon Moseley wrote in a court filing.
Wolkind exited and was handcuffed but not arrested or charged with any crimes. Agents “took all of his computer and computer devices and phones, including an old broken phone,” Moseley said. His girlfriend was also handcuffed but not arrested.
Moseley said he believes the search and seizure was to gather information in the case against Zach Rehl, the self-described president of the Philadelphia Proud Boys, whom Moseley also represents. Rehl was arrested in March on charges he conspired with other leading members of the organization to attack the Capitol and has been in custody in Philadelphia pending trial since.

Georgia asks DOJ to investigate largest county over alleged destruction of election documents

Fulton County's elections chief fired two workers who were seen shredding the voter applications on Friday and then disclosed the problem to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office earlier Monday, state officials said.

Updated: October 11, 2021 - 2:49pm

Georgia's top election official on Monday demanded that the U.S. Justice Department open an investigation into election management in the state's largest county after officials in Fulton County disclosed they had shredded at least 300 voter applications for its upcoming municipal elections in apparent violation of the law.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office told Just the News that his office had also opened an inquiry into the disclosure by Fulton County officials but believed it was time for federal prosecutors to review chronic election irregularities inside the state's largest county, which includes the city of Atlanta.

"After 20 years of documented failure in Fulton County elections, Georgians are tired of waiting to see what the next embarrassing revelation will be," Raffensperger said in a statement. "The Department of Justice needs to take a long look at what Fulton County is doing and how their leadership disenfranchises Fulton voters through incompetence and malfeasance."

He added, "The voters of Georgia are sick of Fulton County's failures."

State officials told Just the News that Fulton County's elections chief fired two workers who were seen shredding the voter applications on Friday and then disclosed the problem to Raffensperger's office earlier Monday.

Georgia law requires election officials to preserve all documents related to primary or general elections for 24 months after the election. The shredded documents are believed to be voter applications to vote in this fall's local elections in Fulton County, officials said.

In addition, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland recently warned all voting jurisdictions nationwide, including those conducting audits into the November 2020 vote, that destruction of election evidence related to federal officeholder elections could also violate federal laws.

"The Civil Rights Act of 1960, now codified at 52 U.S.C. §§ 20701-20706, governs certain '[f]ederal election records,'" Garland wrote this summer. "Section 301 of the Act requires state and local election officials to 'retain and preserve' all records relating to any 'act requisite to voting' for twenty-two months after the conduct of 'any general, special, or primary election' at which citizens vote for 'President, Vice President, presidential elector, Member of the Senate, [or] Member of the House of Representatives,' 52 U.S.C. §20701. The materials covered by Section 301 extend beyond 'papers' to include other 'records.'"

State officials told Just the News the review will include whether similar destruction of records occurred in earlier elections, including those for federal office.

The announcement Monday comes after several major revelations earlier this year about the extent of election vote-count problems in Fulton County.

A state-appointed monitor chronicled to Raffensperger in a memo 29 pages of irregularities, mismanagement and other problems in the Atlanta vote counting center during last November's election ranging from double scanning of ballots to insecure transportation of ballots and violations of voter privacy.

The monitor, Carter Jones, reported that while he found no systemic fraud, he did find widespread mismanagement. His report spurred Raffensperger to take advantage of a new state election integrity law passed this spring. He recently requested that the State Elections Board take the first step of placing Fulton County in receivership, meaning state officials could manage the county's 2022 and 2024 elections.

The CIA “Continued the Effort to Try to Destroy Trump and They Realized the Only Way They Could Do It Was They Had to Steal the Election” – Former CIA and State Department Employee Larry Johnson

By Joe Hoft
Published October 11, 2021 at 6:41pm



Former CIA and State Department employee Larry Johnson was on with Joe Hoft and Kell Brazil at Real Talk 93.3 out of St. Louis this morning. Larry discussed the beginnings of Obama’s Deep State actions against candidate and President Donald Trump this morning.

When Obama’s Ethics Czar Norm Eisen was discussed and his efforts and the CIA’s efforts using methods against President Trump before the 2016 Election through the 2020 Election, here is part of what Johnson responded:
This effort to go after Trump evolved. It didn’t start out from the beginning with a well-formed, coordinated plan. In the summer of 2015, the Central Intelligence Agency was helping collect information and working with foreign governments, particularly the Brits and MI6 to dig up dirt on not just just Trump, but all Republican Presidential candidates and Bernie Sanders. They were working on behalf of Hillary Clinton…
What we saw was the law enforcement and intelligence assets of the US government, instead of serving to protect the interests of the US people, were turned and used in the most abhorent, partisan ways to attack a Presidential candidate to discredit him. Despite all their efforts they initially failed in 2016. But they didn’t stop. They continued the effort to try to destroy Trump and they realized the only way they could do it was they had to steal the election.

Federal Foreknowledge or Federal Incitement? Arrest of Green Beret Oath Keeper Threatens to Expose FBI’s Darkest 1/6 Secrets

October 10, 2021 (1d ago)



The Oath Keepers are the highest-profile and most extensively prosecuted militia group associated with the events of January 6. So far, the government has charged a total of 18 Oath Keepers with conspiring to obstruct Congress’s certification of the 2020 Presidential Election. This is a serious conspiracy charge that could potentially lead to decades of prison time.

Oddly enough, Oath Keepers founder and leader Stewart Rhodes himself has not been charged with anything, despite the fact that the government cites Rhodes’s own statements and actions as largely constitutive of the conspiracy for which so many of his underlings face charges. Revolver News has previously covered this extensively in a major piece of investigative journalism.

Apart from any charges of conspiracy, there is no doubt that, based on his actions on January 6, Stewart Rhodes could technically be prosecuted for trespassing on US Capitol grounds.

Just last Thursday, in fact, approximately 20 FBI vehicles swooped in on the home of Oath Keepers associate Jeremy Brown, searched his belongings for five and a half hours, and took all of his phones and electronics. The feds justified their entire raid on Brown on a minor alleged “trespassing” offense.


Jeremy Brown

Stewart Rhodes is on record and on video committing the exact same trespassing offense—a fact that has also been stipulated in court.

All of this raises serious questions that the government and its press lackeys have yet to answer.

Why has the government avoided indicting Rhodes on an easy lay-up trespassing charge? Why are they protecting him from indictment on more serious conspiracy charges? And if, after 9 months of “investigation,” the Feds eventually hit Rhodes with a minor charge like trespassing, rather than the more serious conspiracy charge so many of his underlings face, what would that imply?

This report will answer these questions, and in so doing raise some profoundly disturbing questions related to federal involvement, at the very highest levels, in the events of January 6.

Before we proceed, however, we must very clearly state one thing: If Stewart Rhodes were to be charged with trespassing, it would be a very stupid and illegitimate charge, just like it would be for any other January 6 attendee who never went inside the Capitol. But if the Justice Department wants to, levying such a charge would be inescapable, based on the aggressive prosecutorial standard it has already established for January 6 cases.

Back to the case of Jeremy Brown. The Justice Department explained in its peculiar arrest affidavit for Brown, an Army Green Beret veteran and Oath Keeper associate, that anyone who set foot anywhere in a giant swath of land ranging from the Capitol’s West side lawn to its East side promenade is technically guilty of trespassing:


Under ordinary circumstances, these “grounds” are open to the public, not “restricted.” But because law enforcement erected some police barriers and fencing there on January 6—barriers that were all but removed before most of the attendees even arrived at the Capitol—thousands of Trump supporters unknowingly crossed an imaginary Maginot Line.

Effectively, they walked into a booby trap.

https://cdn.lbryplayer.xyz/api/v4/streams/free/Persian-Guy-Taking-Down-Fencing-And-Signs---West-Side-Lawn-(1-6)-(Clip)-1/5fc52c5a742aea58ef10f50e134d04213933fa19/d7b01b .16 min

When the FBI arrested Oath Keeper associate Jeremy Brown last week for trespassing, they said he was standing on the East side promenade, and therefore, he was technically “more than 100 feet within the restricted grounds.”



That puts Jeremy Brown here, on the red X:



Stewart Rhodes, the head of the Oath Keepers, was actually standing on the Capitol steps, even deeper into that restricted zone than Brown.

For example, here is Rhodes on the Capitol steps, between 3:35-3:41 p.m., on January 6:

Fulton elections employees fired during investigation into voter applications being destroyed

The district attorney is investigating their alleged actions.


Video on website 1:50 min

Author: Jason Braverman (11Alive)

Updated: 5:04 PM EDT October 11, 2021

ATLANTA — The Fulton County elections office is in the spotlight again and the district attorney's office is investigating.

On Friday, two employees were fired after they allegedly shredded "a number of" paper voter registration applications Elections Director Richard Barron said in a press release.

Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts "immediately" reported it to the office of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for investigation, the county said in a statement.

“Elections are the most important function of our government,” Chairman Pitts said. “We have committed to transparency and integrity.”

In a statement, the Fulton County elections office said:

"Preliminary review suggests that employees may have checked out batches of applications for processing. Instead of fully processing them, in some instances the employees allegedly shredded some of the forms. Fellow employees reported this behavior to their supervisor on Friday morning and the employees were terminated the same day."

The applications in question had all been received in the last two weeks, the county said.

Fulton elections officials said anyone who attempts to vote in an upcoming election who is found to not be registered will be allowed to vote on a provisional ballot as they investigate.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said his office is investigating and claimed nearly 300 applications were shredded.

Raffensperger's office said that state law requires election officials to preserve elections documents related to primary or general elections for 24 months after the election. He is now calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the allegations as well.

“The Department of Justice needs to take a long look at what Fulton County is doing and how their leadership disenfranchises Fulton voters through incompetence and malfeasance. The voters of Georgia are sick of Fulton County’s failures,” he said.

Chairman Pitts said Barron's decision to alert Raffensperger's office of the allegation was a commitment to "being open, fair, and transparent."

Fulton County was in the spotlight during the 2020 election cycle for mistakes that drew the ire of the secretary of state and, in part, led to a provision in Georgia's new election law.

The law also gives the state election board the power to "suspend county or municipal superintendents and appoint an individual to serve as the temporary superintendent in a jurisdiction."

Some critics see this provision as a possible reaction to the situation in Fulton County - a Democratic stronghold - in which hours-long lines plagued polls during primaries; the Fulton County Election Board director also came under fire after the election for the handling of the primaries. However, other county elections officials drew heat after ballots - that initially weren't counted - were found during recounts.

The provision also led to some fears of state officials being able to "overturn" the results of an election. But that's not true, as our VERIFY team found.

BREAKING: Merrick Garland’s Wife ‘Advises’ On Election Audits, Like The Maricopa Audit DOJ Threatened In Arizona

Merrick Garland’s son-in-law is in the CRT business, as has been widely reported in the press. This is a direct conflict of interest with DOJ’s recent instruction to the FBI to intimidate parents getting involved in their child’s education by showing up at school board meetings to prevent CRT instruction.

We now have discovered evidence that AG Garland’s wife, Lynn Garland is highly involved at an executive level advising on ‘election audits’. Garland’s DOJ infamously threatened auditors in Maricopa County, Arizona with criminal charges for participation in a planned ‘canvass’ which eventually discovered massive fraud when conducted by private citizens.

During our research, interestingly enough, we were unable to find these search results on Google, but they did come up using another search engine.

We’d like to know if Lynn Garland was paid for any of this work, and whom she was paid by if so. Also, we’d like to know if this information was disclosed in Garland’s confirmation process.

Noncitizens will be able to vote in two Vermont cities as part of a growing national trend, unless lawsuits prevent new laws from taking effect.
The cities of Montpelier, with about 7,375 residents, and Winooski, with about 7,335, both will allow noncitizens to vote in local elections for offices such as mayor, city council, and school board.
Related changes to the two city charters required the approval of voters as well as the state’s Democrat-controlled Legislature, which in June overrode a veto by Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican.
“These are very liberal cities with progressive Democrats,” Rob Roper, president of the Ethan Allen Institute, a free-market think tank based in Montpelier, told The Daily Signal.
“Throughout much of the state, there is a general distaste for allowing anyone other than citizens over the age of 18 to vote,” Roper said.
“Many oppose the idea [of noncitizen voting] and worry about the precedent.”
The Republican National Committee and the Vermont Republican Party last week filed a lawsuit against each city in Vermont Superior Court, asserting that the state Constitution says only U.S. citizens over the age of 18 are qualified to vote in Vermont.
Elsewhere in liberal states, San Francisco, Chicago, and several jurisdictions in Maryland already allow noncitizens to vote in at least some local elections. Meanwhile, municipal lawmakers in New York City and Los Angeles are among those considering similar proposals.
Vermont is one of the least populous states in the nation. Just 4.7% of the population is foreign-born in a state that is 94.2% white, according to U.S. census data.
But census numbers don’t tell the full story, Roper said.
“Winooski has a very large refugee population and is the only majority-minority legislative district in the state,” he said. “There is an illegal immigrant constituency that is hired by the dairy farms.”
A Montpelier official did not respond Monday to an inquiry from The Daily Signal.
Montpelier Mayor Anne Watson told the news site VTDigger that a “clear majority of Montpelier voters voted to have this measure.”
“We are a nonpartisan local government here in Montpelier, and it’s unfortunate that this has been made a partisan issue,” Watson, an independent, said.
Elections in Winooski officially are nonpartisan. Mayor Kristine Lott emailed The Daily Signal a copy of the public statement she made to Winooski residents last week after the Vermont Republican Party and the Republican National Committee filed the lawsuits.
“More than two-thirds of Winooski voters supported this change, which I believe is an important step in improving equity in our community,” Lott said, adding:
This charter change would give an elevated voice to a tenth of our residents who send their kids to our schools, pay their taxes, create economic opportunities, and enrich Winooski’s cultural and social fabric. There is no reason to expect residents to contribute without representation in our local elections. Many residents spend years living in Winooski while their path to citizenship is lengthy, expensive, and full of barriers.
I am disappointed by this lawsuit, but more importantly, I remain proud of the work that has gone into this process by our voters, commissioners, councilors, and representatives.
While the cities of Winooski and Montpelier are directly named in these lawsuits, it is worth pointing out that the state Legislature supported and approved our charter change.
The state of Vermont made the legally binding amendment to our charter and in the end, the Supreme Court of Vermont may well have to weigh in.

Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, noted that Democrats have pushed noncitizen voting and opposed voter ID requirements, both of which undermine trust in elections.
“Republicans are fighting back on this far-left assault against election integrity—unlike radical Democrats, we believe that our elections should be decided solely by American citizens,” McDaniel said in a public statement. “This is a matter of principle and we will fight in all 50 states to ensure this remains the case.”
A 1996 federal law specifically prohibits noncitizens from voting in federal elections for president or members of Congress. However, the law doesn’t dictate what local governments can do.
The action by the two Vermont cities, and in other jurisdictions nationally, could be about changing the electorate in the long term, said J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which advocates election reforms.
“Democrats are playing the long game,” Adams told The Daily Signal. “This is virtue signaling. The long-term play is to normalize ineligible foreigners to voting in all American elections.”
Roper, of the Ethan Allen Institute, agreed.
“Take small bites of the loaf and say, ‘It’s only local elections,’” Roper said of the strategy. “Eventually, you could argue it’s such a pain for town clerks to keep two voter lists [one for local elections, another for state and national]. You can imagine politicians asking, ‘Why can’t the people working on the dairy farms vote?’ These are incremental moves.”
Interestingly, so-called voting rights organizations such as Fair Fight, founded by former Georgia state Rep. Stacey Abrams, and the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, have not weighed in on the RNC lawsuits.
“I wouldn’t oppose it,” Abrams, an unsuccessful Democratic candidate for Georgia governor in 2018, said in January 2019 when asked about noncitizens voting in local elections.
“I think there’s a difference between municipal and state and federal,” Abrams said. “The granularity of what cities decide is so specific, as to, I think, allow for people to be participants in the process without it somehow undermining our larger democratic ethic that says that you should be a citizen to be a part of the conversation.”
Fair Fight, the Brennan Center, and the Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union—which routinely opposes voter ID laws and other election security policies—did not respond to inquiries Monday from The Daily Signal.
Whether it’s a local or national contest, any noncitizen who wants to participate in elections should commit to become a citizen, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative at The Heritage Foundation, which is the parent organization of The Daily Signal.
“It’s a very bad idea to allow noncitizens to vote. Voting is a very special right and it should only be given to citizens who have a hand in the democratic institutions that we have,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal. “Noncitizens don’t have that, because they haven’t made the commitment to become citizens.”

Terrified Virginia Democrats Seek to Change Election Laws After Voting Has Already Started

By Bonchie | Oct 11, 2021 9:00 AM ET

AP Photo/Steve Helber

The governor’s race in Virginia is heating up, with Glenn Youngkin, once a big underdog in the relatively blue state, gaining more and more momentum. A recent poll, for example, showed the Republican actually leading Democrat Terry McAuliffe among likely voters.

Given the tendency for polls, especially state-level polls, to overstate Democrat standing, staying within striking distance is all Youngkin needs to do for the upset to be a serious possibility.

But if you were looking for more evidence that Democrats see Youngkin as a serious threat and are terrified he may win, look no further than this latest development out of heavily blue Fairfax County. This per The American Spectator.
Virginia’s gubernatorial contest between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe clearly has supporters of the latter worried. Recent polls show a far tighter race than they expected.
Consequently, it was all but inevitable that McAuliffe’s allies would attempt to meddle with election laws using public health as a pretext.
Sure enough, the Democrat-dominated Fairfax Board of Supervisors has asked Gov. Ralph Northam to waive the witness signature requirement that Virginia law stipulates for all absentee ballots. Board Chairman Jeffrey McKay insists that the waiver is necessary due to the threat of COVID-19, yet cases are declining.
The only Republican member of the board dissented, refusing to sign the letter asking Northam for the waiver. He cited the obvious points for his rejection, which are that 1) voting has already started and 2) that the signature requirement was passed into law for a reason, namely to ensure election integrity.

He’s absolutely right. It would be absolutely insane to change the voting laws regarding absentee ballots after the election has already started. Of course, it’s nonsense that there’s this much early voting allowed in the first place, but that’s a different discussion. Changing the rules of the game in the middle of the 4th quarter is the kind of move that will only destroy trust in our elections further. In this case, the request to waive the signature requirement is clearly a ploy by local Democrats to bolster returns in one of the state’s more far-left counties, which could make the difference in the election.

Why do I say that? Because COVID cases have been dropping precipitously in Virginia. There is no sudden emergency denoting a necessary change in the way votes are cast at this late hour, not that any emergency would justify such at any point. Fairfax County, part of Northern Virginia’s Democrat shift over the last decade, is an area that has helped turned formerly Republican Virginia into a blue bastion, stuffing their far-left politics down the throats of the rest of the state, which remains somewhat conservative.

Its also worth noting that this is the exact same tactic deployed during the 2020 election, where the witness signature requirement was waived in the name of COVID. That’s probably not a coincidence. That makes Youngkin winning this race all the more important. These Democrats must be stopped before they do any further damage. If you are in Virginia, go vote. The higher the Republican turnout, the less effect underhanded games like this can have.

SCORCHED EARTH TIME IS COMING – AZ State Rep Wendy Rogers Wants “Less Letters, More ARRESTS”

By Jordan Conradson
Published October 11, 2021 at 10:20pm

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers is ready to go scorched earth on Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

The Gateway Pundit reported that Mark Brnovich sent a letter to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to begin his investigation into the fraudulent voter rolls.

Eleven months later, this is a good start but still not enough.

On Saturday, State Senator Wendy Rogers told her 208,000 Twitter followers that, she is about to go scorched earth if she doesn’t see progress from the Arizona Attorney General soon.

By progress, she meant a full criminal investigation including immediate indictments and arrests.

In response to AG Brnovich’s latest request, Rogers tweeted,
Less letters, more subpoenas. Less requests, more warrants. Less talk, more arrests.
Less letters, more subpoenas. Less requests, more warrants. Less talk, more arrests.

Senator Rogers is leading the charge for decertification and she has amassed over one million signatures on her nationwide petition to decertify the fraudulent election. SIGN YOUR NAME HERE.

Maricopa County residents are already seeing the same signs of mass mail-in voter fraud that was seen before the 2020 election.

Arizona State Representative Travis Grantham said “something ain’t right”, after receiving another mail-in ballot for his sister that lives in California, following repeated attempts to cancel the voter registration and notify the County of the change.

Rogers knows that time is of the essence with the local budget elections next month and the 2022 midterms.


Based on the Arizona audit findings, statute violations, witness testimony, and the County’s refusal to cooperate, this election should have never been certified and Attorney General Mark Brnovich is failing our Nation.

Contact Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich now and demand a full criminal investigation with arrests for the crime of the century.

“Only F***ing Idiots Voted for Trump” – Eric Coomer Admits Under Oath that Dominion Executives Share His Extreme Far Left Beliefs

By Jim Hoft
Published October 12, 2021 at 8:22am


Eric Coomer is the former Director of Security and Product Strategy for Dominion Voting Systems. After the 2020 election debacle, where votes in at least five states had very suspicious results while running Dominion computer systems, center-right journalists made common-sense observations that the results appeared rigged. One journalist, who had infiltrated a conference call filled with Antifa-sympathizing callers, remembered that on the call “Eric from Dominion” was going to ensure that Trump did not win re-election.

The mainstream media has spent a year bullying and suppressing the thousands of eyewitnesses, filed affidavits, investigations and proceedings meant to uncover the big fraud.

Instead, they call all speculation as to what caused sleepy Joe Biden to make magical 2 a.m. leaps of hundreds of thousands of votes, propelling him to victory, the “big lie.”

Even internal Dominion whistleblowers, courageous people like Michigan’s Mellissa Carone, have come forward to document the election day suspicious actions and operations of Dominion.

Eric Coomer decided to sue 15 organizations and people for defamation in his home state of Colorado. He claims to have been defamed by center-right journalists allegedly saying he was tied to Antifa, and that he helped rig the election against Trump.

Coomer is the Plaintiff, and a variety of center-right media outlets, including the Gateway Pundit and separately Gateway Pundit Publisher Jim Hoft, are Defendants.

Coomer’s limited deposition was taken on September 23, 2021, and the court acted on its own to seal the deposition without a hearing. The court dramatically limited the subject matter and scope of the duration of the deposition compared to the Defendant’s depositions. This was odd since no other deposition in the case was similarly sealed by the Court letting the left write stories about those depositions, and no party had asked for Coomer’s deposition to be sealed.

Primarily, the deposition verified many of the claims found in this fawning New York Times profile of Coomer.

EXCLUSIVELY, the Gateway Pundit is providing:
The Eric Coomer deposition transcript
The Eric Coomer deposition exhibits
The Eric Coomer deposition video

The deposition reveals Coomer’s penchant for lying: such as when he authored an OpEd in the Denver Post misleading the public in stating that he did not have any social media accounts, and that any Facebook circulating throughout the public were “fabricated,” pretending to be him, but not authored by him.

“I want to be very clear: I have no connection to the Antifa movement, I did not “rig,” or influence the election, nor have I participated in any calls, demonstrations, or other demonstrable activity related to any political party or social justice/action group.

Additionally, any posts on social media channels purporting to be from me have also been fabricated. I do not have a Twitter account and my Facebook account is not active. These individuals are impersonating me.”

Eric Coomer, Dec. 8, 2020 in the Denver Post

HOWEVER, in the deposition, he finally ADMITS that he was the author of those Facebook messages all along. He had been LYING this entire time.

Most importantly, Defendant Sidney Powell’s lawyer Barry Arrington was able to pin down Dominion’s Coomer and get him to admit that he had, indeed, written the following Facebook messages prior to the 2020 Presidential election:
“If you are planning to vote for that autocratic, narcissistic fascist asshat blowhard and his Christian jihadist VP pic, UNFRIEND ME NOW!”
“Only an absolute F—-ING IDIOT could ever vote for that wind-bag, f—tard FASCIST RACIST F—! No bull—-, I don’t give a damn if you’re a friend, family or random acquaintance, pull the level, mark an oval, touch a screen for that carnival barker… UNFRIEND ME NOW.”
Coomer then qualified his long-rant against Trump by saying this about Dominion:
“…these opinions are rational, and completely my own. They are based in reason and highly credible. Though they are not necessarily the thoughts of my employer, though if not, I should probably find another job… Who wants to work for completely morons?”
LISTEN TO ERIC COOMER SAY THAT DOMINION SHARED HIS EXTREME-LEFT BELIEFS AND VALUES:

Rumble Video on website 3:26 min

So, by virtue of the fact that Coomer continued working at Dominion, it seems safe to say that Dominion generally shared Coomer’s extreme anti-Trump beliefs.



After the Facebook Posts began circulating throughout the internet, Coomer deleted at least 80 of his posts, later telling colleagues that he ‘screwed up.’

When asked to clarify what that meant, why he would think he ‘screwed up’, he hedged and dodged and tap-danced to avoid the obvious answer: because he was the head of Product Strategy and Security for voting systems in 28 presidential election states in 2020, including every swing state, and yet was publicly posting vicious anti-Trump screeds, including the nastiest comments possible against Trump voters whom he called fascists.

Coomer said of Trump voters, prior to the election, “you deserve nothing but contempt” and they were “absolute F—ing idiots.”

LISTEN TO ERIC COOMER, BEING DEPOSED, ADMIT HE STILL THINKS ALL TRUMP VOTERS ARE “F—ING IDIOTS”:

Any business that employed Trump voters, Coomer said, were “complete morons.”

THIS EXTREME-LEFT ZEALOT WAS THE HEAD OF SECURITY FOR DOMINION.


Coomer tries to say he only ‘screwed up’ because he allowed the political right to make him the ‘perfect villain’ in his words from his personal beliefs, which he assures us had no bearing whatsoever in his professional capacity.

Coomer reveals a lot about himself when he says mid-way through the deposition:
“They [the Defendants, such as the Gateway Pundit] can’t imagine, they can’t imagine having an opinion and being in a position, a supposed position, which I was not in, by the way, to try and affect a free and fair election. To them, them – and I’m talking about your clients – to them, this is inconceivable.
If they were in my position, they would – they would use every resource to exploit that. Why? Because I made some personal statements of a personal political belief. I screwed up because I gave them fodder because they can twist that and use it to fundraise and continue this farce.
That’s where I screwed up. And it’s a farce.”
Coomer is admitting here that he was in a position to affect the election. He hedges his admission, catching himself mid-way through, but his intent is clear.

This left-wing nutjob had the position and power to affect election results.

COOMER DEPOSITION EVIDENCE SHOWS HIM SAYING IT WAS “ILLEGAL” NOT TO FLIP ELECTION RESULTS, NOT THAT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE:


Rumble video on website 4:01 min

Dominion has been trying to silence these concerns and criticism by separately suing everyone possible who might journalism too much truth against them.

Coomer, like his Antifa brethren, hates the police and celebrates their murder while simultaneously using the judiciary and law enforcement against his political opponents in litigation.
Coomer refers to the police generally as “motherf—ing villains” in the deposition. He repeatedly posts songs and song lyrics that praise cop-killing.

Coomer admits that he posted “F— the USA” on his Facebook media. The person who is the head of security for one of the largest national voting systems had regularly expressed the most toxic and extreme left views possible. Coomer admits that he only meant to share these views with his 300 Facebook friends by setting his account to private. Later, when he realized his posts were being reported upon by center-right journalist Joe Oltmann, he deleted some 80+ of his posts.

In the deposition Coomer is unable to define common words “Antifa” or “national news” or “satire” or “satirical” or “journalist” or “hate” or “often” or “purporting.” These are common bad faith tactics to run out the clock on depositions.

WATCH COOMER REFUSE TO DEFINE “ANTIFA”:

Coomer is clearly trying to waste time with deposition tactics such as quibbling over the definitions of words, asking for basic questions to be repeated, and being generally defiant in the face of the court’s required deposition time. These stalling tactics are usually punished when anyone other than liberal darlings employ them, but as conservatives have learned there are few, if any, consistent standards in American courtrooms.

An attorney who has seen Coomer up close says of him, “clearly his ego is just out of control.”

Legal experts following the case handicap Coomer’s expenses on this case so far as around $540,000. It’s not known if Coomer is financing this harassment litigation himself or with the benefit of outside funders.

Coomer also claims to have been a skinhead in the past, and became addicted to heroin, cocaine, and opioids. He also verifies that he had a tattoo of the artwork the “Screaming Popes” by Francis Bacon. Bacon was an extreme-left atheist whose macabre series of paintings depict Catholic Popes screaming in agony.

If you believe the 2020 elections were the most safe and secure elections in American history, then you have to believe in the honesty, objectivity, credibility, and fairness of Eric Coomer.

Dominion’s Eric Coomer Has a Tattoo on His Arm by Artist Listed Number One by the Church of Satan

By Joe Hoft
Published October 12, 2021 at 12:25pm

Wow. Dominion’s Eric Coomer has a tattoo of artwork praised by the Church of Satan.

Eric Coomer claims to have been a skinhead in the past and became addicted to heroin, cocaine, and opioids.

Coomer also verified in a recent New York Times fluff piece that he had a tattoo of the artwork “Screaming Popes” by Francis Bacon.


From The New York Times:

Coomer, who traveled around the world for competitive endurance bike races, would have blended in on the campus of Google, just one in a crowd of nonconformist tech types. In the more corporate business of elections, he stood out for the full-sleeve tattoos on his arms (one of Francis Bacon’s “Screaming Popes,” some Picasso bulls) and the half-inch holes in his ears where he once wore what are known as plugs.
This ‘artwork’ looks like something straight from hell. The artist mocks and insults the Catholic Popes.

The satanic and certainly disgusting and sacrilegious and disturbing to look at.
Bacon was an extreme-left atheist whose macabre series of paintings depict Catholic Popes screaming in agony. He is the first artist mentioned at the Church of Satan’s site listing modern era artists.

From the website.



What type of person puts an image like this on his body?



Eric Coomer is a top executive who led Domininon’s efforts in the 2020 Election. He has a tattoo of a piece of art from an artist highly regarded by the Church of Satan. This story just took a strange twist.

Rumble video on website 1:21 min

Any business that employed Trump voters, Coomer said, were “complete morons.”

THIS EXTREME-LEFT ZEALOT WAS THE HEAD OF SECURITY FOR DOMINION.
Coomer tries to say he only ‘screwed up’ because he allowed the political right to make him the ‘perfect villain’ in his words from his personal beliefs, which he assures us had no bearing whatsoever in his professional capacity.
Coomer reveals a lot about himself when he says mid-way through the deposition:
“They [the Defendants, such as the Gateway Pundit] can’t imagine, they can’t imagine having an opinion and being in a position, a supposed position, which I was not in, by the way, to try and affect a free and fair election. To them, them – and I’m talking about your clients – to them, this is inconceivable.
If they were in my position, they would – they would use every resource to exploit that. Why? Because I made some personal statements of a personal political belief. I screwed up because I gave them fodder because they can twist that and use it to fundraise and continue this farce.
That’s where I screwed up. And it’s a farce.”
Coomer is admitting here that he was in a position to affect the election. He hedges his admission, catching himself mid-way through, but his intent is clear.

This left-wing nutjob had the position and power to affect election results.

COOMER DEPOSITION EVIDENCE SHOWS HIM SAYING IT WAS “ILLEGAL” NOT TO FLIP ELECTION RESULTS, NOT THAT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE:

Dominion has been trying to silence these concerns and criticism by separately suing everyone possible who might journalism too much truth against them.

Coomer, like his Antifa brethren, hates the police and celebrates their murder while simultaneously using the judiciary and law enforcement against his political opponents in litigation. Coomer refers to the police generally as “motherf—ing villains” in the deposition. He repeatedly posts songs and song lyrics that praise cop-killing.

Coomer admits that he posted “F— the USA” on his Facebook media. The person who is the head of security for one of the largest national voting systems had regularly expressed the most toxic and extreme left views possible. Coomer admits that he only meant to share these views with his 300 Facebook friends by setting his account to private. Later, when he realized his posts were being reported upon by center-right journalist Joe Oltmann, he deleted some 80+ of his posts.

In the deposition Coomer is unable to define common words “Antifa” or “national news” or “satire” or “satirical” or “journalist” or “hate” or “often” or “purporting.” These are common bad faith tactics to run out the clock on depositions.

WATCH COOMER REFUSE TO DEFINE “ANTIFA”:

Coomer is clearly trying to waste time with deposition tactics such as quibbling over the definitions of words, asking for basic questions to be repeated, and being generally defiant in the face of the court’s required deposition time. These stalling tactics are usually punished when anyone other than liberal darlings employ them, but as conservatives have learned there are few, if any, consistent standards in American courtrooms.

An attorney who has seen Coomer up close says of him, “clearly his ego is just out of control.”

Legal experts following the case handicap Coomer’s expenses on this case so far as around $540,000. It’s not known if Coomer is financing this harassment litigation himself or with the benefit of outside funders.

Coomer also claims to have been a skinhead in the past, and became addicted to heroin, cocaine, and opioids. He also verifies that he had a tattoo of the artwork the “Screaming Popes” by Francis Bacon. Bacon was an extreme-left atheist whose macabre series of paintings depict Catholic Popes screaming in agony.

If you believe the 2020 elections were the most safe and secure elections in American history, then you have to believe in the honesty, objectivity, credibility, and fairness of Eric Coomer.

This is the artwork, part of a series by artist Francis Bacon, below, that Eric Coomer has tattooed on his arm.

American Stasi: Corrupt Biden DOJ and FBI Are Now Arresting Any of the Tens of Thousands of Trump Supporters Who Were Standing HUNDREDS of Yards Away from US Capitol

By Jim Hoft
Published October 12, 2021 at 10:08am
The Revolver News continued its exceptional reporting on the Jan. 6 protests and protests and the FBI’s involvement in planning and running operatives at the US Capitol that day.

As The Gateway Pundit reported last week retired Green Beret Jeremy Brown was arrested in Florida for attending the Jan. 6 protests and standing outside of the US Capitol.

The FBI had attempted to recruit Jeremy Brown as an operative to work the Jan. 6 protests for them.

in their arrest affidavit that American hero Jeremy Brown was arrested only because he was standing outside the US Capitol on January 6th.

The FBI and Biden DOJ even released a new map that shows anyone who was standing near the US Capitol on January 6th can now be arrested.

This is a new maneuver for the Corrupt FBI and DOJ.

They are now arresting anyone who stood within hundreds of feet near the US Capitol.

The Capitol was not marked that day when the protesters arrived and the protesters were NEVER warned that they were in an “illegal space.”

This is the two-tiered US Justice system at its finest.
The Justice Department explained in its peculiar arrest affidavit for Brown, an Army Green Beret veteran and Oath Keeper associate, that anyone who set foot anywhere in a giant swath of land ranging from the Capitol’s West side lawn to its East side promenade is technically guilty of trespassing:
Under ordinary circumstances, these “grounds” are open to the public, not “restricted.” But because law enforcement erected some police barriers and fencing there on January 6—barriers that were all but removed before most of the attendees even arrived at the Capitol—thousands of Trump supporters unknowingly crossed an imaginary Maginot Line.
To give you an idea how large of space this is — Here is a map showing the distance from one side of the restricted arear to the other side of the US Capitol restricted area is nearly half a mile.



The Trump protesters had NO IDEA this was restricted space.

There were neither signs nor warnings form officials that it was illegal to be standing nearly a quarter-mile from the US Capitol on the one side.

The FBI and DOJ are making this up as they go.

This video shows the tens of thousands of Americans who marched to the US Capitol that day. This was just a fraction of the million Trump supporters who turned out to hear him speak that day at the Ellipse in Washington DC.

Two Georgia Election Workers Fired After Allegedly Shredding Hundreds of Voter Registration Applications

By Cassandra Fairbanks
Published October 12, 2021 at 8:40am


Two Fulton County, Georgia election workers were fired after allegations that they shredded hundreds of voter registration applications over the last couple of weeks.


Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has called for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate.
“After 20 years of documented failure in Fulton County elections, Georgians are tired of waiting to see what the next embarrassing revelation will be,” Raffensperger said in a press release Monday. “The Department of Justice needs to take a long look at what Fulton County is doing and how their leadership disenfranchises Fulton voters through incompetence and malfeasance. The voters of Georgia are sick of Fulton County’s failures.”
Raffensperger’s office has also launched their own investigation.

The allegations against the unnamed employees comes just three weeks before Fulton County’s municipal elections.

“Elections are the most important function of our government,” Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts said in the release. “We have committed to transparency and integrity.”

The workers were fired on Friday after being reported by other employees earlier in the day.

“Those who believe their registration may have been impacted by the incident and are not registered on election day will be allowed to cast a provisional ballot while the investigation attempts to determined which voters were affected,” Fox News reports.

The 2020 Election Wasn’t Stolen, It Was Bought By Mark Zuckerberg

The true story of how Mark Zuckerberg privatized the government's voter registration and vote counting for Democrats in 2020.

William Doyle

By William Doyle
OCTOBER 12, 2021

During the 2020 election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely Democratic voters. But this wasn’t traditional political spending. He funded a targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally non-partisan — but demonstrably ideological — non-profit organizations.

Analysis conducted by our team demonstrates this money significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states. This unprecedented merger of public election offices with private resources and personnel is an acute threat to our republic, and should be the focus of electoral reform efforts moving forward.

The 2020 election wasn’t stolen — it was likely bought by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men pouring his money through legal loopholes.

Partisans Running Local Election Offices
The Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and The Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) passed a staggering $419.5 million of Zuckerberg’s money into local government elections offices, and it came with strings attached. Every CTCL and CEIR grant spelled out in great detail the conditions under which the grant money was to be used.

This is not a matter of Democrats outspending Republicans. Private funding of election administration was virtually unknown in the American political system before the 2020 election.

Big CTCL and CEIR money had nothing to do with traditional campaign finance, lobbying, or other expenses that are related to increasingly expensive modern elections. It had to do with financing the infiltration of election offices at the city and county level by left-wing activists, and using those offices as a platform to implement preferred administrative practices, voting methods, and data-sharing agreements, as well as to launch intensive outreach campaigns in areas heavy with Democratic voters.

For instance, CTCL/CEIR funded self-described “vote navigators” in Wisconsin to “assist voters, potentially at their front doors, to answer questions, assist in ballot curing … and witness absentee ballot signatures,” and a temporary staffing agency affiliated with Stacey Abrams called “Happy Faces” counting the votes amidst the election night chaos in Fulton County, Georgia.

CTCL demanded the promotion of universal mail-in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail-in over in-person voting, greatly expanding opportunities for “ballot curing,” expensive bulk mailings, and other lavish “community outreach” programs that were directed by private activists.

CTCL drove the proliferation of unmonitored private dropboxes (which created major chain of custody issues) and opportunities for novel forms of “mail-in ballot electioneering,” allowed for the submission of numerous questionable post-election-day ballots, and created opportunities for illegal ballot harvesting.
CTCL greatly increased funding for temporary staffing and poll workers, which supported the infiltration of election offices by paid Democratic Party activists, coordinated through a complex web of left-leaning non-profit organizations, social media platforms, and social media election influencers.

Staggering Partisan Spending

The amount of additional money these groups poured into elections offices in Democrat-voting areas was truly staggering. To put it in perspective, federal and state matching funds for COVID-19-related election expenses in 2020 totaled $479.5 million. The CTCL and CEIR money totaled $419.5 million. These two private non-profits were responsible for an 85 percent increase in total additional election funding — and that largess was concentrated in a relatively small number of heavily Democratic municipalities.

Although CTCL and CEIR are chartered as non-partisan 501(c)(3) corporations, our research suggests the $419.5 million of CTCL and CEIR spending that took place in 2020 was highly partisan in its distribution and its effects.

Of the 26 grants CTCL provided to cities and counties in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia that were $1 million or larger, 25 went to areas Biden won in 2020. The only county on this list won by Donald Trump (Brown County, Wisconsin) received about $1.1 million—less than 1.3 percent of the $85.5 million that CTCL provided to these top 26 recipients.

But even in Brown County, Wisconsin, where heavily Democrat Green Bay is located, the funding disparities are glaring. The Wisconsin legislature provided roughly $7 per voter to the city of Green Bay to manage its 2020 elections. Rural counties in Wisconsin received approximately $4 per voter.

The CTCL funds boosted Democratic-voting Green Bay resources to $47 per voter, while most rural areas still had the same $4 per voter. Similar funding disparities occurred near Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Flint, Dallas, Houston, and other cities that received tens of millions of dollars of CTCL money.

Preliminary analysis shows this partisan targeting of CTCL funding was repeated in battleground states across the country. Our first case study, however, examines the impefact of CTCL spending on the 2020 election in Texas.

The figure below shows the counties that received CTCL spending ranked by per-capita CTCL spending in Texas. As can easily be seen, the counties with the highest per-capita levels of CTCL spending were Democratic counties.



It should be noted that Tarrant County, which contains Fort Worth, is listed as a Republican county but flipped Democrat in 2020. The DFW exurban Denton and Collin Counties, which are solidly Republican, are not included here because they received no CTCL funding.

Funding and managing elections has always been a government function, not a private one, and for good reason. Private organizations are not subject to the rules for public employees and institutions — they are not required to hold public hearings, cannot be monitored via open-records requests and other mechanisms of administrative and financial transparency, are not subject to the normal checks and balances of the governmental process, and are not accountable to voters if the public disapproves of their actions.

The practical effect of these massive, privately manipulated election-office funding disparities was to create a “shadow” election system with a built-in structural bias that systematically favored Democratic voters over Republican voters. The massive influx of funds essentially created a high-powered, concierge-like get-out-the-vote effort for Biden that took place inside the election system, rather than attempting to influence it from the outside.

We call this the injection of structural bias into the 2020 election, and our analysis shows it likely generated enough additional votes for Biden to secure an Electoral College victory in 2020.

How This Money Affected Texas
Although the magnitude and partisan pattern of CTCL and CEIR spending on its face would suggest their efforts harvested a large number of extra Democratic votes, more proof is needed.

We analyzed the likely effects of CTCL and CEIR spending on Biden’s vote margin in 2020 using publicly available data from government reports combined with widely available voter and demographic data. Specifically, we used Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) to “learn” how changes in key election variables impact the change in Biden’s 2020 vote share.

BART is a machine-learning algorithm that is considered a gold standard in making causal inferences. It enables us to avoid mistaking correlation for causation in our estimations.

For each county, we used 1) two-party Hillary Clinton 2016 vote share, 2) turnout percent in 2016, 3) county share of the total state population, 4) geographic location, measured in terms of longitude and latitude, and 5) per-capita CTCL and CEIR spending, to predict changes in Biden’s two-party 2020 vote margin.
The figure below shows the expected impact of per-capita CTCL spending on Biden’s vote total in Texas, according to our model.



The undulating line shows the amount by which Biden’s vote total is expected to change as CTCL’s per-person spending increases. The actual per-capita level of CTCL spending in Texas, represented by the vertical line, is shown to have narrowed Trump’s Texas margin of victory by about 200,000 votes, which, while significant, was not enough to swing Texas into Biden’s electoral vote column.

To put this figure into perspective, however, Ted Cruz’s margin of victory over Beto O’Rourke in Texas’ 2018 Senate race was only 214,921 votes. It is not inconceivable that Democrats would consider a similar effort, were it to take place in 2024, a small price to pay to oust Cruz from his hotly contested Senate seat.

Did Zuck Bucks Flip Wisconsin and Georgia?
Our preliminary results in Georgia and Wisconsin suggest a similar impact on Biden’s vote margin from CTCL spending. And spending in those states was likely large enough and targeted enough to have shifted them into Biden’s column.
This research and analysis project will culminate in the creation of a counterfactual electoral map based on the combined results of our state-by-state analysis. It will reflect how the election results would have looked after the last legal ballot was counted if CTCL and CEIR did not spend their $419.5 million in 2020.

We have good reason to anticipate that the results of our work will show that CTCL and CEIR involvement in the 2020 election gave rise to an election that, while free, was not fair. The 2020 election wasn’t stolen — it was likely bought with money poured through legal loopholes.

The January 6 Insurrection Hoax
September 2021 • Volume 50, Number 9Roger Kimball
Roger Kimball
Editor and Publisher, The New Criterion

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered at Hillsdale College on September 20, 2021, during a Center for Constructive Alternatives conference on “Critical American Elections.”


Notwithstanding all the hysterical rhetoric surrounding the events of January 6, 2021, two critical things stand out. The first is that what happened was much more hoax than insurrection. In fact, in my judgment, it wasn’t an insurrection at all.

An “insurrection,” as the dictionary will tell you, is a violent uprising against a government or other established authority. Unlike the violent riots that swept the country in the summer of 2020—riots that caused some $2 billion in property damage and claimed more than 20 lives—the January 6 protest at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. lasted a few hours, caused minimal damage, and the only person directly killed was an unarmed female Trump supporter who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. It was, as Tucker Carlson said shortly after the event, a political protest that “got out of hand.”

At the rally preceding the events in question, Donald Trump had suggested that people march to the Capitol “peacefully and patriotically”—these were his exact words—in order to make their voices heard. He did not incite a riot; he stirred up a crowd. Was that, given the circumstances, imprudent? Probably. Was it an effort to overthrow the government? Hardly.

I know this is not the narrative that we have all been instructed to parrot. Indeed, to listen to the establishment media and our political masters, the January 6 protest was a dire threat to the very fabric of our nation: the worst assault on “our democracy” since 9/11, since Pearl Harbor, and even—according to Joe Biden last April—since the Civil War!

Note that phrase “our democracy”: Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and various talking heads have repeated it ad nauseam. But you do not need an advanced degree in hermeneutics to understand that what they mean by “our democracy” is their oligarchy. Similarly, when Pelosi talks about “the people’s house,” she doesn’t mean a house that welcomes riff-raff like you and me.

I just alluded to Ashli Babbitt, the unarmed supporter of Donald Trump who was shot and killed on January 6. Her fate brings me to the second critical thing to understand about the January 6 insurrection hoax. Namely, that it was not a stand-alone event.

On the contrary, what happened that afternoon, and what happened afterwards, is only intelligible when seen as a chapter in the long-running effort to discredit and, ultimately, to dispose of Donald Trump—as well as what Hillary Clinton might call the “deplorable” populist sentiment that brought Trump to power.

In other words, to understand the January 6 insurrection hoax, you also have to understand that other long-running hoax, the Russia collusion hoax. The story of that hoax begins back in 2015, when the resources of the federal government were first mobilized to spy on the Trump campaign, to frame various people close to Trump, and eventually to launch a full-throated criminal investigation of the Trump administration.

From before Trump took office, the Russia collusion hoax was used as a pretext to create a parallel administration shadowing the elected administration.

Remember the Steele dossier, the fantastical document confected by the “well-regarded” former British spy Christopher Steele? We know now that it was the only relevant predicate for ordering FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page and other American citizens.

But in truth, the Steele dossier was just opposition dirt covertly paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. From beginning to end, it was a tissue of lies and fabrications. Everyone involved knew all along it was garbage—rumors and fantasies fed to a gullible Steele by shady Russian sources. But it was nonetheless used to deploy, illegally, the awesome coercive power of the state against a presidential candidate of whom the ruling bureaucracy and its favored candidate disapproved.

The public learned that the Democratic National Committee paid for the manufactured evidence only because of a court order. James Comey, the disgraced former director of the FBI, publicly denied knowing who paid for it, but emails from a year earlier prove that he knew all along. And what was the penalty for lying in Comey’s case? He got a huge book deal and toured the country denouncing Trump to the gleeful satisfaction of his anti-Trump audiences.

What was true of Comey was also true of the entire intelligence apparat, from former CIA Director John Brennan to Congressman Adam Schiff and other Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee to senior members of the FBI. All these people said publicly that they had seen clear evidence of collusion with Russia. But they admitted under oath behind closed doors that they hadn’t.

General Michael Flynn, Trump’s original National Security Advisor, had his career ruined and was bankrupted as part of this political vendetta. Meanwhile James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, and all the rest of the crew at the FBI, the CIA, and other intelligence agencies suffered nothing.

When it came to light that an FBI lawyer altered an email in order to help get a FISA warrant—in other words, that he doctored evidence to spy on a political opponent, which is a felony—he got probation.

The recent news that Special Counsel John Durham is indicting Michael Sussman, a lawyer who covertly worked for the Clinton campaign and lied to the FBI, is welcome news. But it seems like small beer given the rampant higher-level corruption that saturated the Russia collusion hoax.

At least 74 million citizens voted for Donald Trump in 2020, which is at least 11 million more than voted for him in 2016. Many of those voters are profoundly disillusioned and increasingly angry about this entire story—the years-long Robert Mueller “investigation,” the two impeachments of President Trump, the cloud of unknowing that surrounds the 2020 election, and the many questions that have emerged not only from the January 6 protest at the Capitol, but even more from the government’s response to that protest.

Which brings me back to Ashli Babbitt, the long-serving Air Force veteran who was shot and killed by a nervous Capitol Police officer. Babbitt was a useful prop when the media was in overdrive describing the January 6 events as an “armed insurrection” in which wild Trump supporters, supposedly at Trump’s instigation, attacked the Capitol with the intention of overturning the 2020 election.

According to that narrative, five people, including Babbitt, died in the skirmish.

Moreover, it was said, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was bludgeoned to death by a raging Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher. That gem of a story about the fire extinguisher, reported in our former paper of record, The New York Times, was instantly picked up by other media outlets and spread like a Chinese virus.

Of course, it is absolutely critical to the Democratic Party narrative that the January 6 incident be made to seem as violent and crazed as possible. Hence the comparisons to 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and the Civil War. Only thus can pro-Trump Americans be excluded from “our democracy” by being branded as “domestic extremists” if not, indeed, “domestic terrorists.”

The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution accords American citizens the right to a speedy trial. But most of the political prisoners of January 6—many of whom have been kept in solitary confinement—are still waiting to be brought to trial.

And although the media was full of predictions that they would be found guilty of criminal sedition, none has.

Indeed, the prosecution’s cases seem to be falling apart. Most of the hundreds who have been arrested are being charged with trespassing. Another charge being leveled against them is “disrupting an official proceeding.” This is a felony charge designed not for ceremonial procedures like the January 6 certification of the vote, but rather for disrupting Congressional inquiries—for example, by shredding documents relevant to a Congressional investigation. It originated during the George W. Bush administration to deal with the Enron case.

The indisputable fact about January 6 is that although five people died at or near the Capitol on that day or soon thereafter, none of these deaths was brought about by the protesters. The shot fired by Capitol Police Officer Michael Byrd that hit Ashli Babbitt in the neck and killed her was the only shot fired at the Capitol that day. No guns were recovered from the Capitol on January 6. Zero.

The liberal commentator Glenn Greenwald further diminished the “armed insurrection” narrative in an important column last February titled “The False and Exaggerated Claims Still Being Spread About the Capitol Riot.” The title says it all.

Kevin Greeson, Greenwald notes, was killed not by the protesters but died of a heart attack outside the Capitol. Benjamin Philips, the founder of a pro-Trump website called Trumparoo, died of a stroke that day. Rosanne Boyland, another Trump supporter, was reported by The New York Times to have been inadvertently “killed in a crush of fellow rioters during their attempt to fight through a police line.” But later video shows that, far from that, the police pushed protesters on top of Boyland and would not allow other protesters to pull her out.

Four of the five who died, then, were pro-Trump protesters. And the fifth? Well, that was Officer Sicknick—also a Trump supporter, as it turned out—who, contrary to the false report gone viral of The New York Times, went home, told his family he felt fine, but died a day later from, as The Washington Post eventually and grudgingly reported, “natural causes.” No fire extinguishers were involved in his demise.
***
The January 6 insurrection hoax prompts lots of questions.

Why, for example, did the government mobilize 26,000 federal troops from all across the country to surround “the people’s house” following January 6? Why were those troops subjected to FBI vetting, with some of them sent packing?

Why is there some 14,000 hours of video footage of the event on January 6 that the government refuses to release? What are they afraid of letting the public see? More scenes of security guards actually opening doors and politely ushering in protesters? More pictures of FBI informants covertly salted among the crowd?

My own view is that turning Washington into an armed camp was mostly theater.

There was no threat that the Washington police could not have handled. But it was also a show of force and an act of intimidation. The message was: “We’re in charge now, rubes, and don’t you forget it.”

In truth, there is little threat of domestic terror in this country. But there is plenty of domestic conservatism. And that conservatism is the real focus of the establishment’s ire.

It is important to note that while the government provides the muscle for this war on dissent, the elite culture at large is a willing accomplice. Consider, for example, the open letter, signed by more than 500 “publishing professionals” (authors, editors, designers, and so on), calling on the industry to reject books written by anyone who had anything to do with the Trump administration.
These paragons pledged to do whatever they could to stop “enriching the monsters among us.” But here’s their problem: over 74 million people voted for Trump. That’s a lot of monsters.

Many people have been quoting Benjamin Franklin’s famous response when asked what sort of government they had come up with at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. “A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.” Right now, it looks like we can’t. It looks as if the American constitutional republic has given way, as least temporarily, to an American oligarchy.

As the years go by, historians, if the censors allow them access to the documents and give them leave to publish their findings, may well count the 2016 presidential election as the last fair and open democratic election in U.S. history. I know we are not supposed to say that. I know that the heads of Twitter and Facebook and other woke guardians of the status quo call this view “The Big Lie” and do all they can to suppress it. But every honest person knows that the 2020 election was tainted.

The forces responsible for the taint had tried before. Hitherto, their efforts had met with only limited success. But a perfect storm of forces conspired to make 2020 the first oligarchic installation of a president. It would not have happened, I think, absent the panic over the Chinese virus. But that panic, folded in a lover’s embrace by the Democratic establishment, was not only a splendid pretext to clamp down on civil liberties; it also provided an inarguable excuse to alter the rules for elections in several key states.

“Inarguable” is not quite the right word. There could have been plenty of arguments, and many lawsuits, against the way the executive branches in these states usurped the constitutionally guaranteed prerogative of state legislatures to set the election rules when they intervened to allow massive mail-in voting. But the Trump administration, though foreseeing and complaining about the executive interventions, did too little too late to make a difference.

Among the many sobering realities that the 2020 election brought home is that in our current and particular form of oligarchy, the people do have a voice, but it is a voice that is everywhere pressured, cajoled, shaped, and bullied. The people also have a choice, but only among a roster of candidates approved by the elite consensus.

The central fact to appreciate about Donald Trump is that he was elected president without the permission, and over the incredulous objections, of the bipartisan oligarchy that governs us. That was his unforgivable offense. Trump was the greatest threat in history to the credentialed class and the globalist administrative state upon which they feed. Representatives of that oligarchy tried for four years to destroy Trump. Remember that the first mention of impeachment came 19 minutes after his inauguration, an event that was met not only by a widespread Democratic boycott and hysterical claims by Nancy Pelosi and others that the election had been hijacked, but also by riots in Washington, D.C. that saw at least six policemen injured, numerous cars torched, and other property destroyed.

You will search in vain for media or other ruling class denunciations of that violence, or for bulletins from corporate America advising their customers of their solidarity with the newly-installed Trump administration. As the commentator Howie Carr noted, some riots are more equal than others. Some get you the approval of people like Nancy Pelosi and at least the grudging acceptance of oligarchs of the other party. Others get the FBI sweeping the country for “domestic terrorists” and the lords of Big Tech canceling people who defend the protesters’ cause.

Someday—maybe someday soon—this witches’ sabbath, this festival of scapegoating, and what George Orwell called the “hideous ecstasy” of hate will be at an end. Perhaps someday people will be aghast, and some will be ashamed, of what they did to the President of the United States and people who supported him: the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, for instance, proposing to put Senator Ted Cruz on a “no fly” list, and Simon & Schuster canceling Senator Josh Hawley’s book contract.

Part 1 of 2

Part 2 of 2

Donald Trump is the Emmanuel Goldstein (the designated principal enemy of the totalitarian state Oceania in Orwell’s 1984) of the movement. But minor public enemies are legion. Anyone harboring “Trumpist” inclinations is suspect, hence the widespread calls for “deprogramming” Trump’s supporters, who are routinely said to be “marching toward sedition.”

Michael Barone, one of our most perceptive political commentators, got it right when he wrote of the rapid movement “from impeaching incitement to canceling conservatism.” That is the path our oligarchs are inviting us to travel now, criminalizing political dissent and transforming policy differences into a species of heresy. You don’t debate heretics, after all. You seek to destroy them.

Donald Trump’s accomplishments as president were nothing less than stunning.

Trump was, and is, a rude force of nature. He accomplished an immense amount. But he lacked one thing. Some say it was self-discipline or finesse. I agree with a friend of mine who suggested that Trump’s critical flaw was a deficit in guile. That sounds odd, no doubt, since Trump is supposed to be the tough guy who mastered “the art of the deal.” But I think my friend is probably right. Trump seems never to have discerned what a viper’s nest our politics has become for anyone who is not a paid-up member of The Club.

Maybe Trump understands this now. I have no insight into that question. I am pretty confident, though, that the 74 plus million people who voted for him understand it deeply. It’s another reason that The Club should be wary of celebrating its victory too expansively.

Friedrich Hayek took one of the two epigraphs for his book, The Road to Serfdom, from the philosopher David Hume. “It is seldom,” Hume wrote, “that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.” Much as I admire Hume, I wonder whether he got this quite right. Sometimes, I would argue, liberty is erased almost instantaneously.

I’d be willing to wager that Joseph Hackett, confronted with Hume’s observation, would express similar doubts. I would be happy to ask Mr. Hackett myself, but he is inaccessible. If the ironically titled “Department of Justice” has its way, he will be inaccessible for a long, long time—perhaps as long as 20 years.

Joseph Hackett, you see, is a 51-year-old Trump supporter and member of an organization called the Oath Keepers, a group whose members have pledged to “defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.” The FBI does not like the Oath Keepers—agents arrested its leader in January and have picked up many other members in the months since. Hackett traveled to Washington from his home in Florida to join the January 6 rally. According to court documents, he entered the Capitol at 2:45 that afternoon and left some nine minutes later, at 2:54. The next day, he went home. On May 28, he was apprehended by the FBI and indicted on a long list of charges, including conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, destruction of government property, and illegally entering a restricted building.

As far as I have been able to determine, no evidence of Hackett destroying property has come to light. According to his wife, it is not even clear that he entered the Capitol. But he certainly was in the environs. He was a member of the Oath Keepers. He was a supporter of Donald Trump. Therefore, he must be neutralized.

Joseph Hackett is only one of hundreds of citizens who have been branded as “domestic terrorists” trying to “overthrow the government” and who are now languishing, in appalling conditions, jailed as political prisoners of an angry state apparat.

Hayek’s overriding concern in The Road to Serfdom was to combat the forces that were pushing people further along that road to servitude. His chief concern was unchecked state power. In a new preface to the book’s 1956 edition, Hayek noted that one of its “main points” was to document how “extensive government control produces a psychological change, an alteration in the character of the people.”

“This means,” Hayek wrote, “that even a strong tradition of political liberty is no safeguard if the danger is precisely that new institutions and policies will gradually undermine and destroy that spirit.”

This dismal situation, Hayek continues, can be averted, but only if the spirit of liberty “reasserts itself in time and the people not only throw out the party which has been leading them further and further in the dangerous direction but also recognize the nature of the danger and resolutely change their course.”

Note the power of that little word “if.” It was not so long ago that an American could contemplate totalitarian regimes and say, “Thank God we’ve escaped that.”

It’s not at all clear that we can entertain that happy conviction any longer.

That’s one melancholy lesson of the January 6 insurrection hoax: that America is fast mutating from a republic, in which individual liberty is paramount, into an oligarchy, in which conformity is increasingly demanded and enforced.

Another lesson was perfectly expressed by Donald Trump when he reflected on the unremitting tsunami of hostility that he faced as President. “They’re after you,” he more than once told his supporters. “I’m just in the way.”

Bingo.

Wisconsin's election probe zeroes in on Democrat machine tactics, rule changes
Former Supreme Court justice signals focus on whether bureaucrats improperly hijacked election rules.

Updated: October 11, 2021 - 11:02pm

Move over Arizona and hold on Pennsylvania, the next election integrity investigation to take center stage is occurring in Wisconsin, where a former state Supreme Court justice empowered by the Legislature to compel testimony and document production is gathering steam

Interviews with more than a dozen witnesses, officials and lawyers who have interacted with retired Justice Mike Gableman and his staff suggest a strong focus on the role election bureaucracies played in changing the rules — without legislative consent — for how ballots were sent out, filled out, collected and counted.

Gableman's early investigative work as special counsel appointed by Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is shining a spotlight among other things on the Wisconsin Election Commission, a statewide body created by GOP lawmakers after an earlier political rigging scandal in the state known as the John Doe investigations. The commission provides guidance and rules to the 1,852 election clerks in the state on how to conduct voting.

The commission in 2020 altered numerous state voting rules and procedures during the pandemic, often without seeking legislative permission. The changes range from allowing nursing home staff to help fill out resident ballots to giving permission to election clerks to fill out missing witness information required for absentee ballots.

Those two changes alone affected thousands of ballots in a state in which Joe Biden was declared the winner with a narrow margin of just 20,600 votes.

Perhaps even more consequential, the commission gave its blessing to an idea first conceived by election clerks in the blue counties of Dane and Milwaukee that voters could claim the normally rare status of "indefinitely confined" if they were too scared to go out during the COVID outbreak. The change allowed nearly 250,000 people to vote by absentee without complying with required voter ID rules.

That advice, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled after the election, was unlawful.

Only people who determine they have bona fide disabilities and infirmities are allowed to vote as "indefinitely confined," and regulators had no right to declare the pandemic as such a condition, the justices ruled in the only major court decision after Nov. 3 to declare a large bloc of votes as potentially illegally cast.
Gableman has the ability to determine why the rules change was made, whether it was influenced by politics and how many of the 249,769 people who voted as indefinitely confined in 2020 didn't meet the legal criteria and simply voted that way on the flawed advice of regulators.

As a point of comparison, only about 72,000 voters in 2019 sought "indefinitely confined" status, leaving open the possibility that 150,000 or more voters in 2020 did not meet the proper standards, officials told Just the News. The potential total could be seven times the vote margin of Biden's victory.

Gableman also has signaled a focus on Wisconsin's big blue urban areas of Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha and Green Bay. Those five voting metropolises accepted more than $6 million in unprecedented donations to their election coordinators and judges in 2020 from the Center for Tech and Civic Life, a nonprofit funded almost exclusively by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The money, which also went to other major voting jurisdictions across America in 2020, has provoked enormous controversy, as Just the News has previously reported. First, the so-called Zuckerberg bucks allowed a single billionaire to route his money outside the normal campaign finance system to election referees.

Secondly, the donations came with strings attached that influenced how elections were carried out in the municipalities that got money. Documents previously obtained by Just the News, for instance, show officials in Green Bay and Brown County were required to conduct voter registration drives among specific minority groups that tend to vote Democrat.

And former Brown County elections clerk Sandy Juno told Just the News professional elections experts like herself were sidelined in last November's election in favor of a liberal activist from the East Coast brought in with the Zuckerberg money. "We need to be really on top of this, because if this is how elections are going to go, we won't have election integrity," Juno said in a recent interview with Just the News.

Officials and witnesses familiar with Gableman's document requests indicate he also is interested in investigating two events staged by election officials in the liberal bastion of Madison under the banner of "Democracy in the Park."

Gableman is investigating allegations that poll workers were instructed to go to the city's parks on Sept. 26 and Oct. 3 and collect ballots from voters even though Wisconsin does not allow for voting in locations outside approved precinct voting stations.

Those who have interacted with Gableman's team say he appears focused on substantive issues and committed to identifying how ballot collecting and counting was improperly changed in 2020 and how it can be improved or fixed by the Legislature for future elections.

"Some of the earlier election audits and hearings have had a bit of folly to them, things that caused the media to take them less serious," said one person who has interacted with Gableman in recent weeks, whereas Gableman "seems to be serious about focusing on what matters and what can make Wisconsin elections better for the future."

His work, however, has not escaped criticism. The state's Democrat attorney general and a key Republican state lawmaker expressed concerns Monday about the start of the investigation and its early subpoenas and whether it should continue.

Gableman last week announced election officials who cooperate will have immunity from any prosecution and that his goal was to restore voters' confidence in their electoral system after contentious 2016 and 2020 elections in which one or the other party cried foul.

"This investigation has always been about identifying potential failures, improving election transparency and ensuring our elections are run properly, and restoring public confidence in the election process, which should be inclusive, accountable, and transparent," he said. "That's a goal that everyone should be able to support, regardless of politics."

Here are some of the questions witnesses and experts believe Gableman's investigation can answer:
  1. How many of the nearly 250,000 people who skipped voter ID requirements by declaring themselves "indefinitely confined" did so without meeting the legal criteria because of the bad advice given by election bureaucrats?
  2. Why did the WEC fail to deactivate before the 2020 election tens of thousands of names from voters rolls which had been identified in 2019 as having inaccurate information even though the state had taken such action in earlier elections?
  3. Why did WEC succesfully keep the Green Party candidate off the 2020 presidential ballot after allowing the party to appear in 2016. Supporters of Hillary Clinton claimed the Green Party siphoned some 33,000 votes from her tally in 2016.
  4. How much influence did Zuckerberg's money routed through CTCL have on election administrators, and did its grant requirements benefit one party over another?
  5. Were events like Democracy in the Park an improper effort at vote gathering, and were any of those events coordinated with Democrats or the Biden campaign?
  6. Why did WEC instruct election clerks they could fill out missing witness information from absentee ballots when the law requires ballots missing such information be sent back to voters to be fixed? Also, how many ballots were corrected, and in what cities?
  7. Was it lawful for WEC to allow clerks to send absentee ballots to all nursing home residents whether they requested them or not and to allow staff to help residents fill them out, and did any abuses occur?
  8. Were there any abuses or mishandling of ballots delivered to unmonitored drop boxes during the 2020 election, and were there proper chains of custody? Some counties in Georgia have already been found to have problems with their drop boxes.
  9. Were any election machines allowed to be connected to the internet or left with open ports that could have created security vulnerabilities such as those recently flagged by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

Mollie Hemingway's 'Rigged': How Dems have outmaneuvered the GOP in elections for years
"It's amazing [Republicans] won any elections, given this," the author and Fox News contributor said.

Updated: October 12, 2021 - 11:04pm

The Federalist's Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway released her new book Tuesday called "Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections," which analyzes the issues with the 2020 election, the Democrats' history of refusing to accept Republican-won elections, and how Republicans are repeatedly outmaneuvered by the Democratic Party in election litigation.

In her book, Hemingway notes how, until 2020, Democrats had been concerned about absentee ballots and voting machines since 2000, when George W. Bush won the presidency. Since that presidential election, she claims, Democrats have refused to accept any presidential elections won by Republicans.

But in the case of the 2020 election, when the use of those methods significantly increased, those who questioned them were labeled conspiracy theorists by Democrats in political, media, and corporate elites as social media seeks to censor reports of election irregularities.

Hemingway argues the new voting and election methods implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic make the whole process less private and secure, more like it was in the early years of America, when people's votes were public and easily manipulated.

These changes are partly due to how the Democratic Party exploits the legal system to its advantage with elections, she explains, starting with Marc Elias, who chaired the political law practice at the party's law firm Perkins Coie for years.

Elias, who was general counsel for both John Kerry's and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaigns, hired Fusion GPS in 2016, which created the Steele dossier at the center of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

He also has a long history of using courts to benefit Democrats in elections, as was the case with the overturning of Al Franken's apparent loss in a Minnesota Senate election, which ultimately gave the Democratic Party a 60-seat supermajority in the Senate to bypass the filibuster and pass Obamacare, according to Hemingway. Franken's slim, 312-vote victory was brought into question over a year later, when 393 votes in two of Minnesota's largest counties were found by a conservative group to be illegally cast.

Elias was also at the center of the 2020 election, when in January of that year he urged counting ballots without matching signatures, expanding no-excuse absentee voting dramatically, having the government pay for postage, counting ballots that arrive after Election Day, and implementing and expanding ballot harvesting.

The 2020 presidential election was also the first since 1980 when the Republican National Committee was allowed to participate in Election Day operations.

For nearly 40 years, "the Republican National Committee had been prohibited by law from helping out with poll watcher efforts or nearly any litigation related to how voting is conducted," Hemingway writes.

It started with the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial race, when Democrats accused Republicans of voter intimidation. The two parties settled the case and entered into a court-ordered consent decree, under which Republicans were limited in poll watching operations.

Judge Dickinson Debevoise, who was appointed by President Jimmy Carter, oversaw the agreement and didn't let the Republicans out of it, as he kept changing it and following Democrats' request to strengthen it for them. While he was only a judge for 15 years, he maintained senior status for 21 years, which is like a "semi-retirement that enables judges to keep serving in a limited capacity," Hemingway writes.

After Debevoise's death in 2015, his successor, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, took over the case and "let the agreement expire at the end of 2018."

While the Democratic Party was able to build up its own coordination efforts for decades, the RNC was prohibited from doing so, as GOP candidates and state parties were left to do those things on their own.

The RNC was also prohibited from any Election Day-related litigation and recounts.

On "The Federalist Radio Hour" today, Hemingway said that when she was interviewing Republicans about the consent decree, they told her that it was just the way it was, which prompted her to think, "It's amazing you people won any elections, given this."

Michigan charges three women with election fraud during 2020 election
One of the women is accused of fraudulently filling out ballots in the names of nursing home residents without their permission.

By Scott McClallen
Updated: October 12, 2021 - 11:20pm

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has charged three women with crimes related to attempted voter fraud in the 2020 general election.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Nessel argued the charges show that when “rare” election fraud happens, the current safeguards stop it.

“These cases highlight the scrutiny applications and ballots undergo throughout the election process, as well as the thorough investigative process that ensues when instances of attempted fraud are suspected,” Nessel said in a statement.

Procedurally, reports of voter fraud are often first reported to local law enforcement or the Michigan Bureau of Elections (BOE) for initial investigation and then routed to the Michigan State Police (MSP) or Department of Attorney General (DAG) if investigators believe a crime occurred.

“These charges also send a clear message to those who promote deceitful claims about widespread fraud: the current protocols we have in place work to protect and ensure the integrity of our elections. It’s time to share that truth and stop spreading lies to the contrary,” Benson said in a statement.

In October 2020, the Centerline Clerk contacted the BOE after roughly two dozen absentee voter applications were dropped off for processing. The clerk said the application signatures didn’t match voter signatures in the Qualified Voter File (QVF). In Nov. 2020, investigators found the applications came from the Father Muray Nursing Home and were for residents who hadn’t told staff they wanted to vote in the 2020 General Election.

Investigators determined Trenae Myesha Rainey, 28, a facility employee, did not contact residents as set by procedure and instead filled out the applications and forged the resident’s signature to each application. Rainey is charged with six felonies in Macomb County’s 37th District Court. Arraignment isn’t yet scheduled.

In April 2021, the BOE reported a case of double voting. A signature review of a returned absentee ballot to the Detroit City Clerk determined the signature did not match the signature in the QVF. That registered voter also voted at his polling location on Election day. An investigation determined the grandmother of the registered voter, Carless Clark, 59, returned his absentee ballot by mail despite her grandson deciding to vote in person. Clark admitted to signing her grandson’s absentee ballot because she was concerned he would not have time to vote on Election Day. Clark is charged with two felonies in Wayne County’s 36th District Court:

In October 2020, BOE became concerned about possible election fraud after receiving similar inquiries from local election administrators through the QVF Help Desk. The inquiries centered on applications for absentee ballots signed with an “X” and requesting that the ballot be mailed to the business address of Guardian and Associates in Oak Park. BOE referred the review to MSP for a criminal investigation.

Investigators determined Nancy Juanita Williams, 55, planned to control absentee ballots for legally incapacitated persons under her care by fraudulently submitting 26 absentee ballot applications to nine identified city and township clerks. Williams sought to have absentee ballots for those individuals mailed directly to her. She also submitted separate voter registration applications for each person – all without knowledge, consent, or understanding of the person under her care. MSP ultimately referred the case to DAG in May 2021 for charges.

Williams is charged with 14 misdemeanors and 28 felonies across five courts. Williams’ arraignment is scheduled in Redford’s 17th District Court on Nov. 2 at 8:45 a.m.

The charges of election fraud follow an argument in Lansing where Republicans are pushing what they say are election security bills, but Democrats decry as voter suppression. The bills aim for stricter voter ID measures. Of the above three charges, only the double-vote counted in the 2020 election. “The other two were caught during the absentee ballot application processing and never issued actual ballots,” Nessel spokeswoman Lynsey Mukomel told The Center Square in an email.

Rick Perry: Blockchain should be used to ensure security of votes
Blockchain could store information such as a voter's identity, where, and when they voted.

Updated: October 12, 2021 - 11:49pm

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry believes that blockchain technology could be used to keep Americans' votes secure.

"I happen to think that blockchain computing may be the answer to our voting woes that we have in this country," Perry told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Tuesday.

John Solomon Reports 33:15 min

He said the "continuity of that information is the way to guarantee integrity in our voting system, so that you know who somebody is, you know that they're appropriately voting, that — where they voted, when they — not how they voted, and keeping that information in a blockchain format, may be the real answer on this voting side of things. And if it is, we can't get there fast enough."

Blockchain, which is most notably used with cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, "is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets in a business network," according to IBM. Anything valuable, whether tangible or intangible, can be tracked on blockchain, or the "shared, immutable ledger."

Information in the shared ledger cannot be changed after being recorded. If an error was made in recording information on blockchain, then a new entry must be made to reverse it, and both the original and newer entries are visible.

Thus, as Perry suggested, a voter's identity, and the date, time, and medium by which they vote, could be recorded. He added that this would make it more difficult for voter fraud to occur.

The former Secretary of Energy under former President Donald Trump also discussed climate change, explaining that even the Biden administration and Democrats cannot agree on what it means.

But Perry added that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-N.Y.) chief of staff said, "it's really not about climate. It's about redistribution of wealth."

The former governor noted that when looking at the proposed tax and energy policies and eight billion dollars for a "climate corps ... to go put all of these kids all out across the country talking about climate change," it is actually "a reeducation process by this administration."

"They're trying to change America and turn it into a Marxist country," Perry added.

The infrastructure bill and budget reconciliation bill currently working through Congress include the "climate corps" he referred to.

With the midterm elections coming up next year and Democrats pushing their agenda, Perry said that Americans will stand up and tell the Biden administration, "'hell no, and we're going to punish you and punish you harshly,' as they should."

MICHIGAN FORENSIC AUDIT SEEKERS RALLY AT STATE CAPITOL DEMANDING ACTION

BY: IAN MACDONALD
ON: OCTOBER 12, 2021

As election integrity stalwarts around the nation such as Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers and others demand election integrity, people are rallying in Michigan. Those at the rally there outside of Michigan’s capitol are demanding that legislators and government officials take a closer look into the 2020 election with a forensic audit.

Regardless of what you think about the election or who you supported, we have to be clear that forensic audits, while the findings are sometimes tricky to interpret, are absolutely not the same thing as recounts. Recounts simply make sure the votes that are on file were properly counted and recorded. This is a common practice for when elections are close. But forensic audits are to examine the ballots themselves to determine if all the votes in a given election were legitimate.

Things looked at during a forensic audit are electronic data, signature verification standards, and many other things such as if those who voted were supposed to be allowed to vote where they voted from and if there were duplicates, dead people voting, or votes that don’t link back to registered voters.

We’re not claiming all these things happened to the extent that the election in a particular state could be changed or not here, just explaining the goal of these audits. Audits don’t always get to the bottom of all the aforementioned, and are sometimes limited by money, manpower, or perceived stalling by counties and cities that store voter information after an election.

For example, Maricopa County, Arizona, admitted to deleting and archiving files before complying with a subpoena from the state senate, but they argued that the subpoena didn’t ask for the archived files during a hearing, in which they claimed they did nothing wrong. Recently Liz Harrington, a spokesperson for former President Donald Trump posted:

“Voter Fraud in Michigan Woman submitted 26 false mail-in ballot applications for elderly people in her care How many did she vote for them?”

1634106113386.png

See today’s Michigan rally below. The video below contains contained filmed live and is unedited and we don’t necessarily support everything seen in the said video:

https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1yoKMWveEzpJQ 2:35:10 min

Many people believe Detroit is a corrupt city which means they think there may have been fraud in the 2020 presidential election. It remains to be seen if an audit will happen, and if the audit will be sufficient to uncover fraud or satisfy those who want to see more.

Maricopa County Is At It Again! Arizona Residents Are Receiving The WRONG Mail-In Ballot For Local 2021 Election

By Jordan Conradson
Published October 13, 2021 at 8:05am


“Something ain’t right” with the Maricopa County November 2, 2021 local elections.


On Sunday, The Gateway Pundit reported that Arizona State Representative Travis Grantham received a mail-in ballot for his sister that lives in California, following repeated attempts to cancel the voter registration and notify Maricopa County of the change.
Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer responded to Grantham in a condescending manner, blaming the voters for Maricopa County’s pure incompetence.

A Maricopa County Resident shared 3 more potentially illegal ballots that she received. Arizona Senate President Karen Fann also noted that Maricopa County is blaming voters for their incompetence.
Just got 4 mail-in ballots for myself & each of my kids. One’s lived in CA for 10+ years and the other 2 are registered at their own addresses AND received a ballot there. I’d tell Stephen Richer he’s doing a f’d up job with MC voter registration, but he’s blocked me
Fann: Didn’t Maricopa County say it was everyone else’s fault for not notifying them?
Didn’t Maricopa County say it was everyone else’s fault for not notifying them? https://t.co/5qXH2ja7Lt
— Karen Fann (@FannKfann) October 12, 2021
This is the same “criminal incompetence” that Stephen Richer ran on fixing when he even went so far as to say former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes belongs in prison.

Richer said he would replace the staff responsible for these same issues seen in 2020, 2018, and beyond with loose mail-in ballots getting sent all over the valley, inaccurate registration data, and ill-kept voter rolls.

The Maricopa County Director of Election Services and Early Voting, Rey Valenzuela, who was promoted under the “criminal” Adrian Fontes is still in his position along with many others from the Fontes Administration.

Once Stephen Richer was given the proper initiation, he immediately stopped pushing these “election fraud conspiracies”.

Now Richer claims that Fontes ran a perfectly clean election.

Liz Harris’s canvassing efforts discovered that this was happening on a large scale in 2020, and thousands of ballots were delivered to the wrong address.
They’re doing it again and the Arizona Attorney General needs to step in now before it is too late.

BREAKING: ON THURSDAY — DR. SHIVA INVITES MARICOPA ELECTION OFFICIALS TO OPEN DIALOG ON AUDIT RESULTS

By Jordan Conradson
Published October 13, 2021 at 10:05am


Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, MIT Ph.D. SMVS, SMME, SBEE, and the inventor of the email as we know it today, has invited Maricopa County elections officials to an open dialog with him tomorrow.

Maricopa County’s preferred method of communication with the Arizona Senate is through their Twitter page, media networks, and Dr. Shiva concludes that they’ve been using a secret media proxy to disseminate misinformation through their own posts to Arizona Mirror.

Dr. Shiva wants to have an open forum instead of the unproductive online back and forth between County officials and audit officials.

Since the beginning, Maricopa County has refused to comply or answer the auditors’ questions.

DR. SHIVA INVITES MARICOPA ELECTION OFFICIALS TO OPEN DIALOG!
Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, the Inventor of Email, who was commissioned by the Arizona State Senate, will be holding an OPEN FORUM on October 14, Thursday, to motivate open dialog among the public, press and Maricopa Election Officials to address the anomalies discovered by the EchoMail audit of Early Voting Ballot Return Envelope Images.
On September 24, 2021, Dr. Shiva submitted his 99-page audit report and gave a presentation to the Arizona State Senate. The report, presentation as well as other documents can be found here:
Since that report, the media has been spreading misinformation and disinformation to avoid the central issues uncovered by Dr. Shiva’s audit. The Maricopa Election Officials are invited to this dialog. Using behind media proxies to avoid discussion is not productive for the public to understand the substantive issues. Dr.SHIVA encourages the Press, the Public and the Maricopa Election Officials to attend so we can advance election systems integrity.
The OPEN FORUM will be live on Dr. Shiva’s Facebook and Youtube.
Dr. Shiva’s audit presentation showed that over 17,000 ballots were duplicated more than once possibly causing fake votes to be recorded.

Maricopa County still refuses to answer any questions and instead, they make statements on Twitter and in the news saying auditors are wrong with no explanation.

Contact Maricopa County and demand they attend the forum with Dr. Shiva here.

Contact Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and demand his attendance at the forum with Dr. Shiva here.

We need answers.
