Professional retaliation: The swamp defends itself

UncoverDCComplaints about misconduct are often part of an attorney’s record, kept on file by a state bar association. Dealing with an investigation through the disciplinary process can easily become a costly and time consuming effort. What Keith, Nessel and Pascrell are doing is to put the attorneys who have represented Trump, or those who have fought to ensure that only legal votes are counted, through that process.

In essence, the goal is to deter other lawyers from working on election integrity in the future. Even if they do not secure any disciplinary action, putting Gaetz, Moody, Powell and DePerno (among others) through the process is still a form of punishment, particularly if multiple complaints are filed.

Without GOP lawyers willing to specialize in this field—something that will be a necessity as attorneys like Marc Elais use litigation to sidestep the constitutional powers of state legislatures and other executives also act unilaterally—it will be virtually impossible to ensure that every legal vote is counted transparently and in accordance with the laws passed by the state legislatures. If that cannot be ensured, then it is an open question as to whether the United States of America has free and fair elections.

The author is wrong about one thing. It won't be an open question. It will be a closed one -- as our elections will no longer be free or fair.

Senator Hawley will object to Biden's electors

NYPostRepublican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said Wednesday he will object on Jan. 6 to President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

His objection guarantees a last stand for President Trump, who unsuccessfully argued in lawsuits that fraud handed narrow wins to Biden in swing states.

“Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity. They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did,” Hawley said in a statement.

“And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.”

Several Senators have spoken up suggesting they might do this. Mitch McConnell has been trying to keep a lid on it, fearing political consequences; the chances of winning such a vote in the Senate with a razor-thin majority are probably pretty slim. However, just having the objection take place with one member of the House and one of the Senate is enough to trigger contested election procedures.

Will it be enough? I dunno. But the objection will keep Trump in the game for a little longer.

But on the other hand, Pence will not be rejecting Biden's electors in his role as President of the Senate.

The Democrats are stealing Georgia again

Doug StaffordMy wife just got a text thanking her for voting in the Georgia Senate election, and asking her to get her friends to vote. That’s interesting since she’s been a VA registered voters for 15 years and has never lived in GA.


Bayou Renaissance ManThis, in a state where a judge (the sister of one of its leading progressive Democratic Party politicians) has just blocked the removal of invalid voters' names in two counties. She was asked to recuse herself from the case due to that relationship, but stated that "she found no reason for doing so". If she'd been the relative of a Republican politician, do you think her refusal would have met with the same quasi-conspiratorial, silent assent from the mainstream media?

Read the whole thing at the second link for even more evidence of things continuing to go wrong in Georgia.

All wrapped up in a neat little package

Tennessean Anthony Q. Warner, 63, has been identified as the "bomber" in the Christmas day explosion in Nashville by U.S. Attorney Don Cochran.

Cochran announced the update to the investigation in a Sunday afternoon news conference.

"Anthony Warner is the bomber. He was present when the bomb went off, and he perished in the bombing," Cochran said.

DNA found at the scene was matched to samples taken at another location searched by investigators, TBI Director David Rausch said Sunday. The TBI was involved in testing the evidence.

I doubt we'll ever find out the rest of the story, starting with why this individual thought this was a target worth blowing up -- assuming it was even him. Reports of gunshots before the blast do suggest that perhaps he was involuntarily volunteered by others to stay with the vehicle.

Fauci admits to lies about herd immunity

Daily CallerDr. Anthony Fauci reportedly said in a phone interview that he has been deliberately changing his public statements regarding the COVID-19 pandemic because he didn’t think people were ready to hear his true beliefs, according to the New York Times.

Fauci has been slowly increasing the number of Americans he says need to be vaccinated for the U.S. to reach “herd immunity” in public statements, the New York Times reported Thursday morning. He reportedly told the Times he has done so “partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”

What we hear is a disgusting man who thinks lies are better than truth. We remember when he lied about masks and he has kept lying about masks, death rates, risks, everything. When you lie, you lose all credibility and people stop believing you.

More vote fraud

The National PulseRoughly 8,000 ballots are believed to have been requested by non-Georgia residents for the upcoming Senate elections according to the Secretary of State.

Raffensperger is threatening to prosecute people who vote twice... but apparently only in the Senate runoff election. The 2020 presidential election fraud is fine!

Texas governor considers taking over Austin police

NewsweekTexas Governor Greg Abbott said Monday that legislation had been drafted to move control of Austin policing from the Austin Police Department (APD) to state law enforcement officials months after the city passed cuts to the city's police budget.

The Republican governor had previously suggested transferring control of the city's police before announcing that a bill had been drafted Monday on Twitter. Details of the legislation are not clear, while any lawmakers who might be planning to file the bill have not yet been identified.

"Just in time for Christmas: The Legislative Council has sent draft language for a proposed law that would transfer control of the Austin Police Department to the Texas Department of Public Safety," Abbott tweeted. "One way or another we will pass a law to keep Austin safe."

Speaking as an Austin resident, crime was rampant even before the city council voted to defund the police and the Mayor actually did defund the police, canceling two years worth of police academy classes.

I'd much rather have the state government in charge of Austin police, because the local government -- contrary to theory -- doesn't seem to be listening to the residents.

Mysterious bomb in Nashville

A mysterious bomb in Nashville exploded on Christmas. Very strange, in that there was apparently a broadcast warning of the explosion so people could evacuate. The most likely target is an AT&T switching station nearby?

Apparently the police have some people of interest now, so we may learn more. But there are definitely a lot of questions about this incident. It doesn't fit with any of the usual suspects for a bombing; scary as the idea is, this appears to be something new.

A special counsel on election fraud?

Trump has said he wants a special counsel on election fraud. Sidney Powell says he offered her the job, but that she was then blocked by White House staff from reaching the President. If true, this is basically a palace coup. Is the President in charge or can his staff veto his decisions?

GA SecState tries to blame-shift

NewsmaxGeorgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday called for an end to “no-excuse” absentee voting in the state, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"The no-excuse system voted into law in 2005 -- long before most of you, if not all of you, long before I was in the General Assembly -- it makes no sense when we have three weeks of in-person early voting available," Raffensberger told the House Governmental Affairs Committee. "It opens the door to potential illegal voting, especially in light of the federal rules that deny us the ability to keep voter lists, registration files, clean."

This is simply Raffensberger trying to shift blame for the 2020 fraud to others. The law should be changed to block absentee voting entirely, absent reasonable excuse such as travel or illness. But advocating for it now is just a way to try to burnish his image and make up for his capitulation on other issues when they actually mattered -- 2020.

Hmm

CardinalConservBREAKING: President Trump gave permission to new acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to use classified intel for grand jury indictments. Days ago, POTUS also issued Order to block CIA & FBI from meddling in any Durham indictments, after removing DoD protections to CIA.

The impression I am getting is that people are frantically throwing up objections to what trump wants done, and Trump is methodically making each objection go away.

This says a lot about the people around Trump, and it doesn't bode well for success when there is a deadline involved. Barr and others appear to have successfully run out the clock on SpyGate, unless Trump somehow manages to sort out the election fraud issue and stay in office.

The coming storm

BookwormWe’re seeing a perfect storm here: The monoparty (mostly Democrats) have engaged in policies that have destroyed, and are destroying, everything that kept working- and middle-class people stable and non-rebellious. Not only that, they’ve done so in the most offensive ways possible, continuously reminding these same working- and middle-class people that, even as their lives are being ruined, the protected classes are subject to different rules and are doing just fine, thank you very much. They’ve also worked hard to sow racial divisions, so that Americans cannot come together to fight this oligarchy. And just to ice that toxic cake, this whole lockdown might have been stopped instantly if the monoparty hadn’t decided that a medicine Trump recommended must instantly be treated like poison.

And then, on top of it all, to gild the icing on that toxic cake (yeah, yeah, metaphors run amok), the monoparty commits blatant election fraud to push into the White House a man who never left his basement, who inspired no enthusiasm, who had negative coattails, who has a 48-year record of corruption and stupidity, who pimped out his son to America’s geopolitical and economy enemies for cash, who dances to China’s tune, and who is drifting into senility.

People who have nothing left to lose, and who see unworthy people stealing everything they have, are a people ripe for rebellion. These are not college students with imaginary grievances or mentally-ill (and often criminally perverted) Antifa types who are ripe for a riot or some fun looting. Instead, these are people who responded to Pearl Harbor, or who rose up in the Warsaw Ghetto, or who fought the most powerful military in the world in the second half of the 18th century, or who engaged in the Battle of Athens.

Convincing half of America that elections are corrupted to the point that they are pointless to participate in... the consequences of that can only be terrible. I don't know what those consequences will be. Neither does anyone else.

For now there is still time for the system to work.

Trump wants special counsel on election fraud

Just The NewsPresident Trump is calling for a Special Counsel to scrutinize the 2020 presidential election, which he says was tainted by fraud.

"After seeing the massive Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election, I disagree with anyone that thinks a strong, fast, and fair Special Counsel is not needed, IMMEDIATELY," the president tweeted on Wednesday evening. "This was the most corrupt election in the history of our Country, and it must be closely examined!"

With Barr stepping down, Trump may get his wish.

GA SecState's brother has heavy ties to China

Gateway PunditIt appears Secretary of State (SoS) Raffensperger has a brother, Ron. Ron hates President Trump and the two Republican Senators running for office in Georgia. Ron also works as the CTO for Huawei Enterprise Storage Solutions based in Shenzhen, China, a China government owned company.

If true, this would explain Raffensperger's bizarre behavior quite handily.

Newsweek suddenly starts warning of vaccine side effects...

NewsweekThe potential rare, and long-term side effects of COVID vaccines may emerge—if they do at all—after millions of people are immunized, experts have told Newsweek. However, they stressed the benefits of getting vaccinated against a virus that has killed over 1.4 million people worldwide and is still raging in many countries by far outweighs the risks.

So now the official media are broadcasting very mild and milquetoast warnings about "long-term side effects" of COVID vaccines, while minimizing the risk by comparing it to a disease that -- without vaccination and while ignoring several promising treatment protocols -- has killed significantly less than 1% of the people who catch it, and the vast majority of those within well defined risk groups by age and comorbidities. In other words, roughly the same people the seasonal flu would kill.

That they are suddenly warning of long term side effects that "may emerge" and simultaneously downplaying their severity is more than a little ominous. Combined with more than a few examples of people faking a vaccination shot on tv?

What is it they know is coming that they won't tell us?

COVID relief bill is filled with pork and payoffs

PJMediaHow did we get to this point, where the nation faces the emergency of a lifetime if you can believe many in the government, yet those same people in the government seem to be doing whatever they can to take advantage, impose their politics, and make the crisis worse? It suggests some, such as Pelosi, are too confident in the knowledge that whatever they do to the voters in flyover country, whatever nonsense they pack into a “relief” bill that our great-grandchildren will be paying for if there is a United States at that point, their own voters will never feel enough disgust to turn them out of office as they deserve.

It's almost as if they are confident that the elections will always go their way, for some reason...

Direct evidence of foreign election interference?

The Federalist PapersFormer national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn said foreign partners can provide evidence that will show there was foreign influence at work in the Nov. 3 election.

Flynn, speaking to Lou Dobbs Friday on Fox Business, said that interference with elections was linked to the recent extensive infiltration of federal government systems through software made by a company called Solar Winds that was hacked.

“When we talk about our election security, Lou, I think this is all part of it because there’s a relationship between this Solar Winds attack which has basically penetrated our entire critical infrastructure, as well as our election security,” Flynn said.

“With all of the egregious behavior that we have seen on our elections security, we cannot stand for foreign influence, which we have direct evidence of,” he said.

If we do have this direct evidence, and it's not just some trivial ad buys on Facebook but things that actually could make a difference, that puts Trump in a much stronger political position. But the evidence has to be real and solid, not just allegations.

Departing AG Barr sees no reason for special counsel on Hunter Biden case

PJMediaAttorney General Bill Barr says he will not appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden. The son of former Vice President Joe Biden is currently under criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, though such an investigation is liable to be kiboshed should Joe Biden take office in January.

Barr spoke with reporters at the Department of Justice Monday morning, “To the extent that there is an investigation I think it’s being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the Department and to this point, I have not seen a reason to appoint a Special Counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave,” he said.

Barr said he’s “hoping that the next administration handles that matter responsibly.”

That's a complete joke. It's a good thing he's leaving, because investigating the President's son is exactly the kind of conflict of interest that a special counsel is designed to deal with.

Consumer protections for the financial industry

American GreatnessConservatives face all kinds of censorship from the private sector. Big Tech will ban your account and employers will fire you just because of your political beliefs. This free market suppression could escalate into conservatives losing their bank accounts and credit cards due to their political views. For some people, it’s already happened.

We could very well see this nightmare scenario under a President Joe Biden. That’s why it’s imperative for the Trump Administration to do something right now to protect ordinary Americans from the depredations of liberal corporations.

Thankfully, one agency may do something about this. The Office of Comptroller of the Currency is considering a new rule that would bar banks from denying service for non-financial reasons, such as a customer’s political views. The idea has a solid legal basis. It simply implements the language in Title III of the Dodd-Frank Act, which directs the OCC to “assure the safety and soundness of, and compliance with laws and regulations, fair access to financial services, and fair treatment of customers.”

Too little, too late -- but better than nothing.

Chris Christie's anti-recommendation of Flynn versus recommendation of Wray

NewsmaxChristie stressed that he has been warning about Flynn for years, saying “I’ve been talking about this since the transition in 2016, how dangerous I thought General Flynn was. I sat with him in security briefings with the then-candidate Donald Trump, and then with President Donald Trump, and I will tell you that he is not fit to be giving advice to anyone.”

Christie recommended Wray for FBI Director to Trump, which at this point, tells you all you need to know about both of them.

Trump speaks out on cyberattack

National FilePresident Donald Trump suggested on Twitter that China ‘may be’ responsible for the recently announced SolarWinds cyber attack, adding that “Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant” when anything happens, because mainstream media outlets have “financial reasons” to not cover China’s potential involvement.

President Trump also said that the cyber attack could have impacted “our ridiculous voting machines” during the 2020 US election, adding that the election was a “corrupted embarrassment for the USA.”

This comes after several days of the mainstream media repeatedly blaming Russia or Russian actors for the devastating attack.

It seems to me that China has a lot more to gain from hacking our election systems than Russia does.

Trump considering Sidney Powell for special counsel?

Conservative TreehouseThe New York Times is reporting today on a Friday night visit between President Trump and lawyer Sidney Powell. According to the Times President Trump’s legal counsel Rudy Giuliani was present via phone conference and White House counsel Pat A. Cipollone represented the office of the President.

The Times reports “[p]art of the White House meeting on Friday night was a discussion about an executive order to take control of voting machines to examine them, according to one of the people briefed.” However legal advisors to the office of president are unsure if DHS would have authority to impound Dominion ballot machines. The 2018 executive order would seem to indicate that any office directed by the White House would have authority. This avenue would obviously depend on the DNI final report.

Ms. Powell has two lawsuits in the docket of the high court; however, as each day passes it seems the ability to confront known election fraud evidence becomes more challenging. It is likely Powell is recommending a more forceful approach by the executive branch that will support the lawsuits underway by her outside group.

I take no position on whether Sidney Powell should be a special counsel for vote fraud. I think someone needs to be, and if the President has to order voting machines seized as evidence in order to prove it, that needs to happen too. We need to know whether the election system has been corrupted to the degree Powell has alleged whether she is right or not. We cannot simply hope she is wrong, and it costs very little to check.

Wray linked to Mueller team, Russian energy companies, possibly Rosatom

Gateway PunditWe’ve uncovered that Christopher Wray has connections to a Russian energy company. Per a review of Wray’s bio at the firm he represented before coming to the FBI, King and Spalding, Wray represented a Russian energy company.

Wray’s bio at the King and Spalding was later hidden where this was reported. [...] we do know Wray worked on the Enron investigation with then FBI Director Bob Mueller and had crooked Andrew Weissmann reporting to himself. These men were instrumental nearly 20 years later running the corrupt Russia collusion investigation.

This explains a lot about Wray.

Who was responsible for vetting him for this post?
