Military intelligence buying commercial location data

Conservative Treehouse A military arm of the intelligence community buys commercially available databases containing location data from smartphone apps and searches it for Americans’ past movements without a warrant, according to an unclassified memo obtained by The New York Times.

Defense Intelligence Agency analysts have searched for the movements of Americans within a commercial database in five investigations over the past two and a half years, agency officials disclosed in a memo they wrote for Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon.

Of course this is improper and unconstitutional, but it happens anyway.

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

KTBSLouisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin Thursday morning announced their offices have arrested an Amite City Councilman on eight counts of election fraud.

Emanuel Zanders, III is accused of submitting voter registration applications that are known by the person to be materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent.

He's a Democrat, of course.

PA: 300,000 mail-in ballots that were never mailed

Gateway PunditGround Truth host Sam Faddis talks with Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, pattern recognition specialist and inventor, about allegations of election fraud and how Jovan’s technology has the capability to resolve the controversy surrounding mail-in ballots in the recent Presidential election.
Among the many explosive revelations Jovan makes are that there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 300,000 mail-in ballots that were counted in Pennsylvania and yet do not show up anywhere in the Postal Service tracking system as having been processed. On the face of it, that is 300,000 ballots that seem to have appeared out of thin-air. Joe Biden’s margin of victory in Pennsylvania, as currently tabulated, is slightly over 80,000 votes.

The contest may be over, but the investigations can and should continue. We need to pressure the states to firm up their election laws, along with their enforcement of them.

Sue and settle on deportation policy

ReasonToday, January 22, Texas has sought the first nationwide injunction against the Biden administration. Texas has challenged the 100-day moratorium on deportations. You can download the Complaint and Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order. This case differs from past suits in one significant regard: on January 8, DHS and Texas reached an agreement that limited changes to immigration policy. In effect, the Trump Administration tried to place handcuffs on the Biden Administration.

"Sue and settle" works for both sides, when both sides are playing the same game. It remains to be seen whether judges will rule the same way.

Arizona county agrees to audit -- but only after inauguration

Gateway PunditOn Inauguration Day Maricopa County Arizona officials finally agreed to an audit on the presidential votes.

This is how you know they cheated.
They don’t even hide it. Then the tech giants shut you down when you say something!

They wouldn't need to insist on delaying the audit until after the election if they were confident their "results" would pass muster. But they are insisting on auditors from a particular body -- whose membership Biden controls -- rather than independent auditors who might actually find something.

Government "can neither confirm nor deny" they fabricated Russian fingerprints

LawFlogThe Central Intelligence Agency will neither confirm nor deny that it fabricated the Russian “fingerprints” in Democratic National Committee emails published in 2016 by “Guccifer 2.0,” and the FBI implicitly acknowledged today that it never reviewed the contents of DNC employee Seth Rich’s laptop despite gaining custody of the laptop after his murder.

The revelations came in two separate Freedom of Information Act lawsuits filed by my clients in the Eastern District of Texas. For those of you who live under a rock, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange strongly implied in a 2016 interview that the leaked DNC emails came from Mr. Rich, while the political / bureaucratic / media establishment has steadfastly maintained that the emails were hacked by agents of Russia.

The latest admissions blow a hole in the government / media narrative, suggesting that federal officials not only ignored Seth Rich’s role in the leaks, but fraudulently shifted the blame to Russia.

As far as I am concerned, this proves the counter-narrative: Seth Rich leaked the DNC emails to Wikileaks and was killed for it, after which the US government (FBI, CIA and possibly other agencies) covered it up. The details are foggy, but the coverup is proven.

Senate Judiciary releases 11 transcripts about Crossfire Hurricane

Conservative TreehouseSenate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham released 11 transcripts of interviews conducted during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s inquiry into the origins and aftermath of the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation.

I'm with Bill Quick on this. It's sort of nice to have it released and public, although it likely doesn't cover absolutely everything, but the time when this could have a significant impact or lead to serious reforms is long past. Biden will protect the people who are protecting him.

Durham may still turn up something, but it does seem unlikely at this point.

A good point

Gateway PunditThis is what our intersections look like now. If you need all this to protect your inauguration from the people, maybe the f***ing people didn’t f***ing elect you!”

Short, but accurate.

Of course, there is some reason to hope the troops are there to keep the Democrats in so they can be arrested for colluding with China to steal the election. This seems unlikely, but there are a very few indicators that appear to point in that direction. We're so far outside of normal that trying to predict is useless.

Video proves election fraud in GA?

Video here. I can barely make out the audio myself, but the captions suggest that election workers (previously implicated in mysterious and controversial counting video where ballots were removed from under a table and counted without observers) are conspiring to get rid of observers so they can count ballots. Combined with video evidence of what they actually did later, it seems damning -- if you believe the captions.

Texas arrests illegal vote harvestor

Just The News"Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the arrest of Rachel Rodriguez for election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot," according to a press release. "Each charge constitutes a felony under the Texas Election Code. Rodriguez was exposed in a Project Veritas video last fall while she engaged in vote harvesting leading up to the 2020 election."

Only one state that I know of has even begun to address vote fraud properly.

What I saw leading up to the US Capitol attack

Center for Security PolicyThe deadly riot at the US Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the January 6 joint session of Congress.

A small number of cadre used the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol, what appeared to be four separate cells or units

A detailed eyewitness account.

Lockdowns don't work (except to get Trump out)

NewsweekA study evaluating COVID-19 responses around the world found that mandatory lockdown orders early in the pandemic may not provide significantly more benefits to slowing the spread of the disease than other voluntary measures, such as social distancing or travel reduction.

The peer reviewed study was published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation on January 5, and analyzed coronavirus case growth in 10 countries in early 2020.

The researchers used a mathematical model to compare countries that did and did not enact more restrictive lockdown orders, and determined that there was "no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on case growth in any country."

Now that Biden is about to enter the White House, it's safe to tell us that lockdowns don't work. Who would have guessed?

(I did).

SAF sues over arm-brace rulings

Second Amendment FoundationThe Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Department of Justice, alleging violations of the Administrative Procedures Act relating to its flip-flop regulation of arm braces on semiautomatic pistols.

The only problem I see here is that ATF has never been forced to comply with the APA before. Hopefully the courts will be willing to do that here.

NRA files for bankruptcy, wants to move to Texas

Just The NewsThe National Rifle Association announced Friday it was filing for bankruptcy protection and will be leaving New York with plans to reorganize in Texas.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said "This is a transformational moment in the history of the NRA." The organization filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in federal court in Texas on Friday.

I have no idea how this will work out legally, but we need to assume the NRA is sidelined until further notice, perhaps permanently (as a member-driven organization anyway). Wayne seems to think it's going to clear up the legal issues in New York. Maybe.

Texas is certainly a much better political environment to be in.

Dem Gov says election fraud claims are not protected

Gateway PunditPennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman (D) on Friday said President Trump does not have the right to say the election was stolen.

According to Fetterman, saying the election was stolen or rigged is not protected under the 1st Amendment.

“This idea that saying that Pennsylvania was ‘rigged’ or that we were ‘trying to steal the election’ — that’s a lie. And you do not have the right, that is not protected speech,” Fetterman said.

He is, of course, insane. Political speech is exactly what the 1st Amendment is intended to protect.

Bail fund refuses to say who they bailed out

Just The NewsA bail fund promoted by Vice President-elect Kamala Harris that reportedly helped bail out several accused and convicted criminals — at least one with a markedly violent history — is refusing to share the records of the individuals it helped spring from jail in the midst of last year's deadly Black Lives Matter-led riots in Minnesota.

Obviously, if they said who they bailed out, those people could be followed up on to see what further crimes they committed, which would look bad for the fund.

Cancel culture blacklisting anyone who worked for Trump?

American ThinkerDawson Buchanan, a young Trump supporter, left a very disturbing thread on Twitter. He asserts that he was all set to begin working for a company called Private Jet Services. However, shortly before he was to begin, PJS fired him. He finally learned from the owner that PJS had a contract with the National Hockey League. When the NHL learned that PJS had hired someone who had worked for the Trump company, the NHL said PJS had a choice: Buchanan or the NHL. PJS opted for the company that helps pay its bills.

This honestly sounds like tortious interference in trade to me. But it's a sign we're going to see a lot of attempts to blacklist anyone who was publicly associated with Trump, and that's going to make people even more furious.

Liberal activist arrested for capitol building riots

Fox NewsA left-wing activist who told Fox News last week that he’d followed a pro-Trump mob into the Capitol in order to "document" the siege is now the subject of a criminal complaint in connection with his alleged participation, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

John Sullivan can allegedly be heard egging on protesters in video he provided to the FBI, according to a federal criminal complaint. He has also shared the video to his YouTube and Twitter accounts under the pseudonym Jayden X.

He was charged Thursday in federal court in Washington after being arrested by the FBI. He remains in custody in Toeele County, in his home state of Utah, on a U.S. Marshals Service hold request.

So this guy was there, with a camerawoman who has worked for CNN and NPR, egging people on to destroy things and break into the building. He was there egging people on when Ashli was shot and may have broken the window that got her shot. He admits he was a false-flag:

Fox NewsIn an interview with Rolling Stone published Wednesday, Sullivan said he was putting on an act to build rapport with the protesters.

"I had to relate to these people, and build trust in the short amount of time I had there to get where I need to go," he told the magazine. "To the front of the crowd to see the dynamic between the police and the protesters, because nobody wants to see the backs of people’s heads from a far-off distance."

He apparently made it there. During the unrest, he tweeted up-close video of the moment a Capitol Police officer fatally shot Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt during the riot. It had been taken just a few feet away, at the height of the chaos outside the Speaker’s Lobby.

More about his political positions.

And he organized a protest that sounds like Antifa:

Fox NewsWhile he has denied ties to Antifa, or anti-fascists, in recent interviews, his group Insurgence USA had advertised an event called "Kick These Fascists out of DC" on Wednesday around the same time as a pro-Trump rally near the National Mall that preceded the Capitol chaos.

Add in the timeline -- people began storming the capitol building before Trump even started speaking, when it takes almost an hour from the site of the speech to walk to the capitol building.

What if...?

Clayton CramerMy wife has asked me why the courts have ignored allegations of voter fraud and why VP Pence decided he lacked authority to prefer elector slates picked by the state legislatures over governor selections, when Art. II, sec. 1 gives the state legislatures plenary authority in this matter. The courts are easy; they have historically been reluctant to interfere in what they consider primarily political questions. But what if NSA (or employees improperly using access) were blackmailing officials like how J. Edgar Hoover used FBI surveillance? There may be no electoral solution.

Read the whole thing.

I don't think we're in the "What if...?" scenario. We're in the "They are doing it, but we don't know who until their chain gets yanked."

I'm afraid that there is no electoral solution. Elections can be, and will be, frauded. Anyone we elect, including saints, will have past sins that can be exposed or manufactured.

For what it's worth, I don't think Pence needed to be blackmailed. I get the impression he's just not willing to stick his neck out very far. But there are lots of other possibilities, with John Roberts at the top of the list.

Trump declassifies all FBI SpyGate documents

Just The NewsA bombshell revelation in the remaining FBI documents on Russia collusion shows that the entire narrative was created and leaked to the news media to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s concern that her email scandal hadn’t gone away.

I originally read this as being all SpyGate documents, but ... it's just what the FBI had. That leaves a lot of room for CIA and other agencies to be hiding even more.

I think this declassification is welcome and necessary. I expect the contents will be very embarrassing to the FBI, and probably says a lot about the confidence Trump has in Special Counsel Durham -- which is to say, very little confidence, an opinion I share.

PBS lawyer advocates reeducation camps for children of Trump supporters

CDMediaProject Veritas released a new video today exposing Michael Beller, Principal Counsel for The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), for his statements defending violent attacks on the White House, re-education for the children of Trump supporters and praising the deaths of red state voters as a result of COVID-19.

Michael Beller, PBS principal counsel: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”
Beller: “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”
Beller: “Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, D.C.] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody’s just stupid?”
Beller: “What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great…a lot of them [red state voters] are sick and dying.”

Will the Democrats ever stop to ask themselves "Are we the baddies?"
