Election lawsuit status update

Mike HuckabeeDon’t believe the media narrative that court challenges to the 2020 election are over and that we need to “move along; there’s nothing to see here.” Yes, most courts dismissed their cases without even looking at evidence, but some rulings have been made and there are still cases to be adjudicated. John Solomon has been keeping up with the activity.

In fact, now that Joe Biden is comfortably situated in the White House and Trump has dropped his own legal challenges, courts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Virginia are starting to rule that the way widespread absentee balloting was handled in these states violated state laws.

4th Amendment case before the Supreme Court

ForbesThe U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday will hear oral argument in Caniglia v. Strom, a case that could have sweeping consequences for policing, due process, and mental health, with the Biden Administration and attorneys general from nine states urging the High Court to uphold warrantless gun confiscation. But what would ultimately become a major Fourth Amendment case began with an elderly couple’s spat over a coffee mug.

This case would eviscerate the 4th Amendment, should the court rule incorrectly. The police could enter anyone's home for any reason, without a warrant or probable cause of any crime.

Permanent Pandemic

The BlazeBloomberg reporter Andreas Kluth suggested that Americans get ready for full-time pandemic preparation.

"For the past year, an assumption — sometimes explicit, often tacit — has informed almost all our thinking about the pandemic: At some point, it will be over, and then we'll go 'back to normal,'" Kluth wrote. "This premise is almost certainly wrong."

There is no getting back to "normal," according to Kluth, who said that Americans ought to prepare themselves to fight COVID-19 — a "permanent enemy," like influenza, "but worse."

This is exactly what a totalitarian government needs to keep its people in fear. All over a disease with a survival rate around 99% and several viable treatment regimes, even if you exclude the vaccines as too risky.

It would be insane... if it wasn't malicious.

6th circuit strikes down bump stock ban

Of Arms And The LawThe case is Gun Owners of America v. Garland, handed down today. The big issue was Chevron deference, under which a court defers to an agency interpretation of an ambiguous law.

Not a 2nd Amendment case specifically. But a positive step.

GA passes election reform laws

Behind the BlackIn what might be the first sign that at least one Republican-controlled state legislature has recognized that their state’s voting system is corrupt and prone to tampering, Georgia’s government has passed and signed into law a range of changes designed to make election fraud more difficult.

Most of the changes appear to me to be either minor window-dressing or watered-down reforms that will help but not alleviate the problem. One change however is major, significant, and will likely guarantee that control of the voting system will now be under the supervision of the state’s elected officials, not the appointed bureaucrats in the election board.

I agree with him that most of the changes are weaksauce. I'm hopeful about the election board changes, mostly because they should render Raffensperger irrelevant.

Straight up racism

Conservative TreehouseOakland California is beginning a pilot for giving low income families $500/month with no strings attached for up to 600 families. The goal is to bridge the income disparity gap; however, poor white residents are not permitted to apply for the program.

This is not the first such openly racist government program, and I doubt it will be the last.

The Left begins their push

Daily WireDemocrat President Joe Biden reportedly held a recent secret meeting in the White House with “historians” to discuss how “big” of an agenda he could push and how “fast” he could “jam” it through.

The agenda that Biden is pursuing would bring “once-in-a-lifetime historic changes to America,” Axios reported. Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer declared in November that if Democrats won both U.S. Senates in the Georgia runoff elections that Democrats would “change America.”

I don't think it's going too far out on a limb to say none of this actually happened. What happened is that some of Biden's "advisors" leaked this fragment of their agenda to the press.

Judicial Watch sues GA SecState Raffensperger

Just The NewsJudicial Watch has lodged a couple of Georgia Open Records Act lawsuits against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, including one seeking records connected to the March 6, 2020 consent agreement pertaining to the processing of absentee ballots in the November election contest, and another suit seeking records pertaining to a January 2, 2021 phone conversation in which the Peach State official and then-President Donald Trump participated.

Judicial Watch has a pretty good record of getting stuff like this out of government. It just takes a very long time.

DHS to monitor travel habits of Americans with views they don't like

Conservative TreehouseWhile it might sound innocuous for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security to monitor the travel habits & patterns of Americans they define as ‘domestic extremists’, we would be prudent to remind ourselves that political affiliation is just as easily defined as ‘extremism.’

DHS is considering not only tracking American people defined by the U.S. intelligence apparatus as ‘extremist’, they are also debating the manner and processes of intercepting, questioning and searching those individuals.

As we have seen from the factual example of the January 6th DC protest rally, if you attend an event labeled as ‘extremist’ by a 20-something ideologue with access inside the system, you may find yourself on a “no-fly” list.

This seems a blatant violation of the First Amendment to me. Remember, they didn't say "terrorists". They said "extremists". "Extremist" is a viewpoint term.

Trump endorses primary opponent for GA SecState Raffensperger

Just The NewsRepublican Rep. Jody Hice on Monday announced his candidacy for the Georgia secretary of state, in a bid backed by former President Trump to unseat fellow Republican incumbent Brad Raffensperger.

"Free and fair elections are the foundation of our country," said Hice, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. "What Brad Raffensperger did was create cracks in the integrity of our elections, which I wholeheartedly believe individuals took advantage of in 2020."

After everything Raffensperger did to corrupt the 2020 Presidential election, he needs to lose.

Federal law enforcement are feeling their oats again

Montana Daily GazetteHeretofore ignored by the legacy press and mainstream media, in February, federal authorities invaded a neighborhood in the Flathead Valley with militarized police and terrorized its occupants with what appears to be Waco-level tyrannical overreach

Calling this Waco-level is incorrect; no one died and no buildings burned. But it's troubling to see this kind of abuse, particularly with the heavy military presence.

Colorado mass murderer identified, likely Islamic terrorist

TwitchyBoulder Police have identified the shooter in yesterday's violence at King Soopers as 21-year-old Ahmad Alyssa of Arvada. He is being held on ten counts of murder. The victims range in age from 20 to 65.

Based on his name and religion, it's very likely we're looking at another case of Islamic terrorism. And he hates Trump. And the FBI knew he was a threat before the attack.

It's very convenient that the Democrats have control of all three branches of government and suddenly the mass murders start happening again.

Disqus deplatforms FrontPageMag based on SPLC claim

FrontPageMagOn March 3rd the Editors at FrontPage received an email from Disqus, the networked community platform used by hundreds of thousands of sites all over the web. As of today, Disqus is de-platforming us. They have refused to respond to inquiries seeking further explanation. Disqus has taken on faith the libelous accusations of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a widely-discredited, partisan group that frequently characterizes mainstream conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

Time for me to remove Disqus from all the websites I have used it for.

New emails emerge in GA election controversy

Just The NewsInternal emails from Fulton County election workers obtained by Just the News are heightening the mystery surrounding ballot-processing in Georgia's largest county during last November's presidential contest.

Basically, the emails support the claim that news media were told all workers had gone home and that counting would resume the next morning, contradicting claims that media were told only some workers would go home.

It's obvious the election was stolen. The only problem is proving it when the courts won't hear your cases.

Danforth and the Waco coverup

Future of Freedom FoundationThe easiest way to achieve sainthood in Washington is to cover up a federal atrocity. Thus, it is no surprise that former senator John Danforth continues to be treated by the Washington Post as a visionary statesman. The Post showcased Danforth’s attack on Donald Trump in October after Trump derided the Commission on Presidential Debates. Danforth, a permanent member of that commission, is one of the top five “useful idiots for Leviathan,” according to the revised rankings after the death of John McCain.
In the 1990s, Danforth received plaudits for being a “moderate” Republican who supported gun control. But his true claim to establishment fame arose from his contortions to suppress the truth about Waco. Danforth appointed himself as the nation’s political faith healer after the biggest federal law-enforcement debacle in modern times.

Prompted by Danforth's involvement with the President Debate Commission, the author examines Danforth's role in covering up the Waco massacre. The focus on Danforth is a little odd, but the piece is worth reading as a refresher on what happened at Waco and how it was covered up. And if Danforth is still treated with respect anywhere, well, this should put an end to that.

“The audit will be broad and detailed,” Fann said. “[T]he team will include, but is not limited to, testing the machines, scanning the ballots, performing a full hand count and checking for any IT breaches.

The people involved have had months to destroy evidence, but it will be interesting to see what the auditors find.

About that voter fraud that doesn't exist...

Fox 8A federal North Carolina prosecutor’s office that has been investigating allegations of voter-related fraud says 24 more people have been charged over the past 18 months.

The government says two defendants were charged earlier this year with unlawful voting in the 2016 general election.

More than 15 others face charges of falsely claiming U.S. citizenship to register to vote.

It Was Rosenstein All Along

Just The NewsA federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by TV show host and journalist Sharyl Attkisson alleging former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and other ex-officials conducted illegal wiretap surveillance against her during her reporting of the Obama administration in 2013.

Attkisson wrote in a statement Thursday that she was not surprised but disappointed by the ruling.

"At least we now know that our own government was directly responsible for conducting illegal surveillance of a journalist and that Mr. Rosenstein was directly involved," Attkisson said. "Although as despicable as this conduct is and was, the goal was to find the truth."

This doesn't surprise me a bit. Comey is a weasel, but Rosenstein is a snake.

Judge rules Michigan SecState gave illegal instructions on election rules

PJMedia“I’m glad the court sees Secretary of State Benson’s attempts at lawmaking for what they are – clear violations of her authority,” said State Rep. Matt Hall, a Republican. “If she wants to make changes like these, she needs to work with the Legislature or properly promulgate them through the laws we have on the books.”

“The Legislature is an equal branch of government charged with crafting laws,” Hall continued. “This is not the role of the Secretary of State, and there is a clear process that must be respected. Unfortunately, Secretary of State Benson has a pattern of not respecting that process. She issued a mandatory directive requiring local election officials to apply a presumption of validity to all signatures on absent voter ballots, but there is nothing within state law allowing for that type of power from her position. As a result, this directive was found to be not in accordance with our laws and not valid.”

Now that it's too late to do anything about it.

FBI Agent rode with terrorists in Texas Draw Mohammed attack

AmmolandFew know the details of how one prepared gunfighter police officer faced two Islamic riflemen armed with semi-automatic rifles, handguns, plenty of ammunition, soft body armor, and the element of surprise. He fought them at close range and prevailed.
Gregory Stevens was that officer. For his own safety and security, and, possibly, to shield the FBI from exposure, the details of the attack and his defensive actions were hidden for more than a year.

Many of the details have been revealed, Officer Stevens explained the events of that day in a video presentation which has been viewed by less than a thousand people on Youtube. It deserves a much wider audience. The video is an hour and eight minutes long.

Read the whole thing.

The testimony is explosive.

The biggest revelation: an FBI agent was riding in the same vehicle as the attackers and giving them advice. When the vehicle was stopped by local police at gunpoint, he had to flee the vehicle while screaming that he was FBI. And this got covered up until now.

Bill Quick adds some information, and wonders if he will be targeted for posting it.

Mollie Hemingway summarizes the election shenanigans in Georgia

The FederalistThe Washington Post was busted for publishing fabricated quotes from an anonymous source, attributing them to a sitting president, and using those quotes as a basis to speculate the president committed a crime. The invented Donald Trump quotes, which related to a fight over election integrity in Georgia, were cited in Democrats’ impeachment brief and during the Senate impeachment trial.

But the fake quotes, bad as they were, are just one of many ways the media have done a horrible job of covering election disputes in the state.

Read the whole thing. Even if you followed the details in real time, it's good to wrap it up in a summary. Especially if you may have missed some details and not realized it.

Judge may release some GA ballots to investigators

Gateway PunditIn November a Georgia poll watcher noticed the suspicious shift in votes from President Trump to Joe Biden while monitoring the interim election results on the Georgia secretary of state website.

Voter GA co-founder Garland Favorito swore in an affidavit in November with the secretary of state’s office that, “I concluded from looking at these results that this was an irregularity since there was no obvious reason for President Trump’s totals to have decreased while former Vice President Biden’s totals increased dramatically.”

On Monday Georgia Superior Court Judge Brian Amero announced he was inclined to unseal the votes to allow them to be inspected by Garland Favorito.

Maybe we'll actually learn something about the fraud from this.

But no. Trump was asking GA officials to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, asserting that they would find dishonesty, and that that job was very important. Nothing objectionable at all. And the Washington Post reported on the issue, which was used to frame a second impeachment of the President, based on faked quotes.

Literal demon worshippers

PJMediaThe curriculum urges teachers to lead students in a series of indigenous songs and chants, including the “In Lak Ech Affirmation,” which appeals directly to the Aztec gods. Students clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka—whom the Aztecs worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism—asking him for the power to become “warriors” for “social justice.” Then the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking “healing epistemologies” and a “revolutionary spirit.” Huitzilopochtli was the Aztec god of war who inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices.

The chant ends with a request for “liberation, transformation, decolonization,” after which students shout “Panche beh! Panche beh!” in a quest for “critical consciousness.”

As Rufo noted, the curriculum’s support for chants directly appealing to Aztec gods almost certainly violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. If that clause prevents public schools from leading Christian prayers, it must certainly forbid the exact opposite.

Well, if you count pagan gods who demand human sacrifice as demons, which seems to me a perfectly acceptable definition. What shouldn't be perfectly acceptable is worshipping them in the public school curriculum.

I'm not even Christian myself; I consider myself a pragmatic agnostic. I don't mind most alternative religions that have reasonable and civilized moral codes. But even I can see problems with promoting worship of gods who demand human sacrifice, and that's even before you start indoctrinating kids in schools with this.

Those of you who do consider yourselves explicitly Christian, perhaps it's time to wake up and defend your faith.
