NBC host Chuck Todd, who is always in the running to overtake CNN’s Brian Stelter as the dumbest newsman in the news media, had it out with Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) over a number of Republican members of Congress who are planning to dispute the certification of Joe Biden winning the 2020 election due to questions of massive election fraud.
After being accused of trying to thwart the democratic process, Johnson hit back by telling sleepy eyes Todd that they are trying to protect it.
“We are not acting to thwart the democratic process, we are acting to protect it,” Johnson said to Todd.
“The fact of the matter is we have an unsustainable state of affairs in this country where we have tens of millions of people who do not view this election result as legitimate,” Johnson added.
The senator from Wisconsin added, “As long as somebody is going to be objecting to this and we’re going to take a vote, let’s propose a solution in terms of transparency, investigation, with a commission.”
Todd, like all mainstream news media activists, saw his job as trashing Johnson and continuing to spread the lie that there is no evidence of election fraud based on the courts dismissing multiple cases brought on by Republicans. What Todd and every other left-wing activist with a news program forgets to mention is that none of the cases were tossed by judges based on bad evidence. They were never allowed to even present their evidence before the judges threw out the cases. Don’t you think that’s a pretty important fact that Todd should have acknowledged?
“You made an allegation there was widespread fraud, you have failed to offer specific evidence of that widespread fraud, but you’re demanding an investigation on the grounds that there are allegations of widespread fraud. So essentially you’re the arsonist here. President Trump is the arsonist here,” Todd spit out at Johnson.
Here’s the most frustrating thing about all of this. There is massive amounts of evidence showing election fraud, but losers like Chuck Todd refused to air it. There were legislature hearings in all of the key battleground states where whistleblowers and witnesses filed over a thousand affidavits signed upon penalty of perjury who testified to reveal election fraud they witnessed first hand.
The hearings were all aired on YouTube, because cretins like Chuck Todd refused to air them. None of the mainstream news media outlets aired a single hearing, and I believe they stayed away from them so that they could continue to lie to their viewers about there being no evidence.
Here is just one example of an expert witness who testified as to the results of a 2020 voter data analysis he did for the Georgia election, where he discovered there were tens of thousands of fraudulent votes in numerous categories.
“Because you didn’t have the guts to tell the truth that this election was fair!” Todd continued.
Johnson fired back at the lamebrain pointing to him as being the arsonist because media types like Todd “dropped any pretense of being unbiased and actually chose sides during the election.”
Todd and others in the Fake News media are acting like the Republicans contesting the election results is an unprecedented affair.
Let me remind them that the last three times a Republican won a presidential election the Democrats in the House brought objections to the Electoral votes the Republican won.
Lest they forget that the House Democrats contested both elections of former President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 and President Trump’s win in 2016.
Senator Josh Hawley (R- MO) announced last week that he will object to Electoral College certification, and that brought a large amount of condemnation from Democrats who praised their own party’s objections to GOP victories in 2000, 2004 and 2016. Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing things that they actually did.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the Republican’s objections to the 2020 election “conspiracy and fantasy.” I’d love to know how much Schumer is involved in the attempts to steal the Georgia senate runoff elections being held today.
Schumer said, “The effort by the sitting president of the United States to overturn the results is patently undemocratic. The effort by others to amplify and burnish his ludicrous claims of fraud is equally revolting.”
So, then what would he call when the Democrats did it three times? The clowns literally claimed Donald Trump was a Russian asset after his 2016 victory.
“This is America. We have elections. We have results. We make arguments based on the fact and reason—not conspiracy and fantasy,” he added. He said this even though he know that Democrats have been challenging the electoral vote for every Republican victory for decades.
In 2005, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), along with Representative Stephanie Tubbs (D-OH), objected to Bush’s 2004 electoral votes in Ohio.
Democrats championed Boxer’s actions at the time, including Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). Yet last week, Durbin described Republican objections as “the political equivalent of barking at the moon.” Speaking of barking at the moon, Durbin is a known liar who throws out lies to push conspiracy theories.
The fact of the matter is the Constitution provides lots of remedies for situations we are in right now. Donald Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide, and the Democrats stole it from him. You have to be dumb as a box of hair or a CNN viewer to not understand that after the evidence has been presented from all battleground states. It’s overwhelming, despite the fact that the Democrats and their boot-licking sycophants in the mainstream news media ignore or lie about it. The Republicans have every right to object.
President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday issued a batch of pardons forgiving the crimes of two former associates, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone, as well as Charles Kushner, the father of Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.
The latest list grants 26 full pardons and commutes all or part of the sentence of three additional individuals after Trump on Tuesday issued 15 pardons and five commutations.
From Tuesday, the White House released the following statement:
Today, President Donald J. Trump granted Full Pardons to 15 individuals and commuted part or all of the sentences of an additional 5 individuals.
Alfonso Costa — President Trump granted a full pardon to Alfonso Costa, a dentist from Pittsburgh. Dr. Costa’s request for clemency was supported by Dr. Ben Carson and Jerome Bettis, as well as by numerous business associates, patients, and community leaders from Pittsburgh. Dr. Costa pled guilty to one count of health care fraud related to false billing, took full responsibility for his conduct, served two years of probation, and paid nearly $300,000 in fines and restitution. He has devoted much of his adult life to service to his community, including serving on the board of the Pittsburgh Opera, and doing significant service for children and the underprivileged.
Alfred Lee Crum — President Trump granted Alfred Lee Crum a full pardon. Mr. Crum, who is now 89, pled guilty in 1952—when he was 19 years old—to helping his wife’s uncle illegally distill moonshine in Oklahoma. Mr. Crum served three years of probation, and paid a $250 fine. Mr. Crum has maintained a clean record and a strong marriage for nearly 70 years, attended the same church for 60 years, raised four children, and regularly participated in charity fundraising events. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma Brian Kuester supported Mr. Crum’s request for a pardon.
Crystal Munoz — Today, President Trump commuted Crystal Munoz’s remaining term of supervised release, having previously commuted her sentence of incarceration after she had served 12 years in prison. Alice Johnson, the Texas A&M Criminal Defense Clinic, and the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Munoz. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Munoz was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana based on her role in a marijuana smuggling ring. During her time in prison, she mentored people working to better their lives, volunteered with a hospice program, and demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to rehabilitation.
Tynice Nichole Hall — President Trump has commuted the remainder of Tynice Nichole Hall’s term of supervised release. He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served nearly 14 years of an 18-year sentence for allowing her apartment to be used to distribute drugs. Alice Johnson, The Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, and The Ladies of Hope Ministries are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Hall. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. While in prison, Ms. Hall completed a number of job-training programs and apprenticeships, as well as coursework towards a college degree. In addition, Ms. Hall taught prison educational programs to other inmates. She has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has worked hard to rehabilitate herself.
Judith Negron — President Trump has today commuted the remainder of Judith Negron’s term of supervised release. He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served 8 years of her sentence. Alice Johnson, the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Change.org, and the Warden at Aliceville Federal Correctional Institution have all supported clemency for Ms. Negron. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Negron is a wife and mother who was sentenced to 35 years for her role as a minority-owner of a healthcare company engaged in a scheme to defraud the Federal Government. During her incarceration, Ms. Negron dedicated her time to improving her life as well as the lives of her fellow inmates. She completed hundreds of hours of educational programs, served as a tutor, and mentored other inmates. Her acts of selflessness won her the praise of her prison warden.
Steve Stockman — Today, President Trump commuted the remaining prison sentence of Steve Stockman. Former Representatives Bob McEwen and Bob Barr, along with James Dobson and L. Brent Bozell are among the many public figures who have called for Mr. Stockman’s release from incarceration on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Mr. Stockman is 64 and has underlying pre-existing health conditions that place his health at greater risk during the COVID epidemic, and he has already contracted COVID while in prison. Mr. Stockman, who was twice a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Texas’s 9th congressional district from 1995 to 1997 and Texas’s 36th congressional district from 2013 to 2015, was convicted in 2018 of misuse of charitable funds. Mr. Stockman has served more than two years of his ten-year sentence and will remain subject to a period of supervised release and an order requiring that he pay more than $1,000,000 in restitution.
Duncan Hunter – At the request of many Members of Congress, President Trump granted a full pardon to Duncan Hunter. His pardon is also supported by former Commissioner of the Federal Election Commission Bradley Smith.
Mr. Hunter has dedicated much of his adult life to public service. Mr. Hunter represented California’s 50th Congressional District from 2013 to 2020. Prior to his time in Congress, Mr. Hunter was an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Inspired to enlist after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Mr. Hunter saw combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
In 2019, Mr. Hunter pled guilty to one count of misusing campaign funds, an offense that could have been handled as a civil case via the Federal Election Commission, according to former FEC Commissioner Bradley Smith. He was sentenced to 11 months’ imprisonment set to begin in January 2021.
Chris Collins – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Chris Collins, at the request of many Members of Congress.
Mr. Collins served in Congress for nearly seven years, representing the people of Western New York from 2013 to 2019. Mr. Collins spent his early career as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, before devoting his life to public service. In 2007, Mr. Collins was elected County Executive for Erie County, New York, a position he held for one four-year term, and in 2012 the people of New York’s 27th congressional district elected Mr. Collins to the U.S. House of Representatives. He was subsequently re-elected to this seat three times. During his tenure in Congress, Mr. Collins was known for his particular focus on the wellbeing of small businesses, agriculture, and sciences.
In 2019, Mr. Collins pled guilty to the charges of conspiring to commit securities fraud and making false statements to the FBI. Mr. Collins is currently serving his 26-month sentence.
Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. These former Border Patrol Agents have been supported by one hundred members of Congress, including Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Steve King, Rep. Ted Poe, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Brian Babin, as well as the U.S. Border Control Foundation and the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund.
Mr. Ramos participates in numerous community activities and charities, and Mr. Compean is active in his local church.
Both men served as Border Patrol Agents and put themselves in harm’s way to help secure our southern border with Mexico. On one such occasion in 2005, they stopped an illegal alien trafficking 700 pounds of marijuana. When the illegal alien—who was thought to be armed—resisted arrest, Mr. Ramos shot the suspect, who fled back across the border. For this, Mr. Ramos and Mr. Compean were charged and convicted of assault, using a firearm during a crime of violence, and deprivation of civil rights. After they were sentenced to 11 and 12 years imprisonment, respectively, their case gained widespread attention.
One hundred members of Congress, as well as the organizations above, supported Mr. Ramos’ and Mr. Compean’s release from prison. The Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the excessive sentence imposed on the former agents. And President George W. Bush ultimately commuted these sentences with strong bipartisan support.
George Papadopoulos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to George Papadopoulos. Mr. Papadopoulos was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Notably, Mueller stated in his report that he found no evidence of collusion in connection with Russia’s attempts to interfere in the election. Nonetheless, the Special Counsel’s team still charged Mr. Papadopoulos with this process-related crime.
At the time that Mr. Papadopoulos allegedly made the false statements, he was not represented by counsel, and, after he was arrested, Mr. Papadopoulos gave additional information on his prior statements to the Special Counsel. Today’s pardon helps correct the wrong that Mueller’s team inflicted on so many people.
Alex van der Zwaan – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Alex van der Zwaan. His pardon is supported by former Rep. Trey Gowdy.
Mr. van der Zwaan was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. None of his underlying conduct was alleged to have been unlawful, nor did prosecutors note any prior criminal history. Mr. van der Zwaan is a Dutch national who voluntarily returned to the United States to correct his statements and surrendered his passport upon entry.
Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard. The pardon of these four veterans is broadly supported by the public, including Pete Hegseth, and elected officials such as Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Ralph Norman, Rep. Bill Flores, Rep. Brian Babin, Rep. Michael Burgess, Rep. Daniel Webster, Rep. Steve King, and Rep. Ted Yoho.
Mr. Slatten, Mr. Slough, Mr. Liberty, and Mr. Heard have a long history of service to the Nation. Mr. Slatten was inspired to serve his country after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and served two tours in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division. Mr. Slough served in the United States Army and deployed to Iraq with his National Guard unit. Mr. Liberty served in the United States Marine Corps and protected United States Embassies abroad. Mr. Heard served in the United States Marine Corps during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
These veterans were working in Iraq in 2007 as security contractors responsible for securing the safety of United States personnel. When the convoy attempted to establish a blockade outside the “Green Zone,” the situation turned violent, which resulted in the unfortunate deaths and injuries of Iraqi civilians. Initial charges against the men were dismissed, but they were eventually tried and convicted on charges ranging from first degree murder to voluntary manslaughter. On appeal, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that additional evidence should have been presented at Mr. Slatten’s trial. Further, prosecutors recently disclosed—more than 10 years after the incident—that the lead Iraqi investigator, who prosecutors relied heavily on to verify that there were no insurgent victims and to collect evidence, may have had ties to insurgent groups himself.
Weldon Angelos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Weldon Angelos. Mr. Angelos’ pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Alice Johnson, former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman, and others.
Mr. Angelos is an active criminal justice reform advocate and champion of giving second chances. Because of mandatory minimums, Mr. Angelos was sentenced in 2002 to 55 years’ imprisonment for selling marijuana and carrying a handgun in the course of dealing. The presiding judge called this excessive sentence “unjust and cruel and even irrational.”
Mr. Angelos was eventually released by judicial order after serving 13 years in prison, and committed to changing the world for the better through criminal justice reform advocacy. His story has been cited as an inspiration for sentencing reform, including the First Step Act, and he participated in a Prison Reform Summit at the White House in 2018. In his own words, Mr. Angelos wants “to become whole again and put the bad choices in the past and continue changing the world for the better.”
Philip Lyman – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Philip Lyman. Mr. Lyman’s pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and other notable members of the Utah community.
Mr. Lyman is known to be a man of integrity and character who was serving as a county commissioner in Utah when he was subjected to selective prosecution for protesting the Bureau of Land Management’s closure of the Recapture Canyon to ATV riders. He had no other criminal history, but he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days in prison and nearly $96,000 in restitution.
Otis Gordon – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Otis Gordon. Mr. Gordon’s pardon is supported by Senator Tim Scott.
Mr. Gordon has become a Pastor at Life Changer’s International Ministries since his conviction for possession with intent to distribute. In 2015, in the wake of the shooting at a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, Mr. Gordon led a prayer session at the United States Capitol. Mr. Gordon mentors at-risk youths in his community. Senator Tim Scott describes Mr. Gordon as “a model citizen” since his release and “focused on helping young men avoid the same traps he once fell in.”
Philip Esformes – Today, President Trump commuted the term of imprisonment of Philip Esformes, while leaving the remaining aspects of his sentence, including supervised release and restitution, intact. This commutation is supported by former Attorneys General Edwin Meese and Michael Mukasey, as well as former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson. In addition, former Attorneys General Edwin Meese, John Ashcroft, and Alberto Gonzalez, as well as other notable legal figures such as Ken Starr, have filed in support of his appeal challenging his conviction on the basis of prosecutorial misconduct related to violating attorney-client privilege.
While in prison, Mr. Esformes, who is 52, has been devoted to prayer and repentance and is in declining health.
Supreme Court Justice John Robers is a controversial judge, appointed by George Bush and at the time considered a conservative scholar, who has spent more than a decade delivering a deep betrayal to the American people as one of the more radical left justices on the Supreme Court, and one high profile person who is close to the President is boldly and publically calling Roberts to task with evidence that will damage Roberts.
“Answers to 2 simple questions below will tell We The People ALL we need to know about Chief Justice John Roberts. We, The People, are entitled to answers. You work for us, Justice Roberts. Answer these questions. They will not go away. You cannot fly TRUTH away on Epstein jet,” Wood said.
Woods also claims to have proof of a damaging phone call between Roberts and another justice that proves Roberts should step down.
“The People have list of questions for C.J. Roberts based on bizarre votes on major cases starting with Obamacare. But let’s ask him just two: 1. Are you the John Roberts on Epstein flight logs? 2. Did you say about @realDonaldTrump “the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected.” Wood said.
“Excellent thread to read & consider. A judge must be impartial. Chief Justice has proven by his documented profane comments about @realDonaldTrump that he is biased. At a minimum, barring further embarrassing disclosures, Roberts should recuse himself Trump election cases,” he said.
Attorney Lin Wood has taken up an approach of fiery blows in defense of President Donald J. Trump, against the Supreme Court’s actions, especially of Justice John Roberts, that is unfolding hourly.
Roberts does even more than deliver painful SCOTUS decisions, according to the Brookings Institute, he is also the mastermind behind the troublesome FISA Court:
“Among his non-judicial duties, the Chief Justice of the United States selects sitting federal judges to serve on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in addition to their regular judicial duties. A recent New York Times article reported that ten of the cou ’s 11 current judges, all selected by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., were appointed to the bench by Republican presidents, as were 86 percent of all Roberts’ designees to the court. Critics say that a FISA court dominated by Republican appointees is likely to be overly sympathetic to government requests. This controversy has awakened a broader debate about the authority that has accumulated in the office of chief justice.
HAMMER TIME- WOODS TAKES ROBERTS TO THE WOODSHED
“The People have a list of questions for C.J. Roberts based on bizarre votes on major cases starting with Obamacare. But let’s ask him just two: 1. Are you the John Roberts on Epstein flight logs? 2. Did you say about @realDonaldTrump “the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected.” He posted, alluding to a secret phone call.
“Chief Justice John Roberts wields great power. (1) has significant influence in selecting cases for review (2) presides over oral arguments (3) leads a discussion of cases among the justices. When a court renders an opinion, if in the majority, he chooses who writes court’s opinion.” he wrote.
Calls for Wood to release the phone call he refers to:
There is proof that Roberts could have a bias against Trump:
Wood’s pointed words comes at the same time a Supreme Court Clerk reports Roberts was overheard screaming about Trump:
CCP? Wood posted that he believes many officials are lying and taking money from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) It is unclear from his posts if he believes Roberts to be in that group.
“We The People have reached the point where we have seen & experienced enough corruption in OUR government. Enough is always enough. Our elected officials are dirty. They need to come clean. Here is some simple advice on how to clean up the mess you have made of our country. (1) Obey one of God’s Ten Commandments – tell the TRUTH.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” – Exodus 20:16 Following this simple rule would be refreshing to We The People. The truth would bring light to our present darkness. (2) If you speak TRUTH, you will find favor with We The People. Your rewards will be great. “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” – Revelation 22:14 Beats CCP money. (3) If you continue to lie to We The People for CCP $, power, & influence, it will not end well for you. We will FIRE you. Not good. “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” – Revelation 22:15,” Wood posted.
In the same way that vaccine makers are exempted from legal liability if someone who gets the vaccine contracts the disease it was that, the liberals trying to do the same thing to gun manufacturer. The purpose behind limiting liability for vaccine makers is because a certain amount of people take a vaccine it will either not work or they will catch the disease the vaccine was made to prevent. There is no 100% prevention for vaccines, but they’re pretty darn close. If vaccine makers were liable to lawsuits, the companies that make vaccines would move overseas. Why allow themselves to become susceptible to lawsuits that could put them out of business?
The liberals understand this, and in their never-ending quest to destroy the Second Amendment, and therefore destroy every American’s God given right to protect themselves and their families, they figured out that they can apply the same method to gun manufacturers.
In 2005, President George W. Bush signed the PLCAA into law to protect US firearms manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. In those few moments he came out of his basement, Joe Biden campaigned on making firearm manufacturers liable for lawsuits that are linked to the criminal misuse of the products they make. This would be like allowing GM to be held liable if someone intentionally ran someone over with one of their vehicles. It would hold Craftsman liable if someone used one of their hammers to commit a murder. In a word the idea is stupid.
During a New Hampshire Democratic primary debate, on February 7, 2020, Biden took the time to call on Americans being allowed to sue firearm manufacturers in an attempt to one-up the other gun haters in the debate who were all vying to be the top dog who would get to be the one to put every American family at risk of rising crimes, the same way it happens in every country where they take away guns from the law-abiding citizens.
Biden said Sanders’ support for PLCAA was a “mistake” that gave “gun manufacturers … a loophole that does not allow them to be sued for the carnage they are creating.” And no one in the media ever asked him how the manufacturers were creating carnage and not the animals that misuse guns to harm people.
Biden added, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that, and it’s going to hard.”
During a speech in South Carolina a couple weeks later Biden looked right into the camera and said directly to gun manufacturers, “I’m going to take you down.”
The PLCAA doesn’t allow gun manufacturers to create weapons for the sole purpose of criminals using them with abandon. To the contrary, the law protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits in scenarios where the guns in question were made and sold legally. Biden wants to throw those protections out, and that would be the beginning of the end for gun owners to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones.
So that you understand that his threat to gun manufacturers wasn’t just a flash in the pan to gain votes in the primary, during a gun control forum in Las Vegas in October 2019, Biden bragged that making gun manufacturers able to be sued would end up causing “change overnight.”
Let’s remind people what the Second Amendment actually says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
That one sentence says that the federal government cannot even have a conversation about gun laws. Forget the years of unconstitutional rulings by gun-hating lawyers in black robes. The Second Amendment clearly states in the final clause “shall not be infringed” to mean that the government can not create any laws that will hinder the free exercise of owning and using firearms to protect yourself. Any attempt of any president to do so should be met with impeachment.
What progressives want is to make guns so expensive that average Americans can’t afford to buy them. Lawsuits always end up costing the consumer more money, because the company sued has to pass the losses of lawsuits onto the customer in higher prices for products or services. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to make a profit and would go out of business. That’s what Biden and his progressive Second Amendment haters would try to do and it’s as unamerican as it gets.
President Donald J. Trump is continuing with “changing of the guard” at the Pentagon Level, this month, with sweeping changes at the advisor level, which should alter the media that something is unfolding.
“Directive “removes 11 high-profile advisors from the Defense Policy Board, including former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright; retired Adm. Gary Roughead.” Several Mattis appointees also removed,” Jeff Carlson , a reporter for the Epoch Times, wrote.
Earlier in November Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper and acting Undersecretary of Defense for Policy James Anderson, who sought to keep the outgoing advisory board in place to allow for policy continuity. Both Esper and Anderson were removed earlier this month in a purge of Pentagon officials.
According to a DC Insider Magazine who broke the story of the high level firings:
“Several members of the top federal advisory committee to the U.S. Department of Defense have been suddenly pushed out, multiple U.S. officials told Foreign Policy, in what appears to be the outgoing Trump administration’s parting shot at scions of the foreign-policy establishment.
The directive, which the Pentagon’s White House liaison Joshua Whitehouse sent on Wednesday afternoon, removes 11 high-profile advisors from the Defense Policy Board, including former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Madeleine Albright; retired Adm. Gary Roughead, who served as chief of naval operations; and a onetime ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Jane Harman. Rudy De Leon, a former chief operating officer at the Pentagon once considered by then-Defense Secretary James Mattis for a high-level policy role, will also be ousted.”
Also booted in today’s sweep of the board, which is effective immediately, were former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and David McCormick, a former Treasury Department undersecretary during the George W. Bush administration. Both had been added to the board by Mattis in 2017. Jamie Gorelick, a Clinton administration deputy attorney general; Robert Joseph, a chief U.S. nuclear negotiator who convinced Libya to give up weapons of mass destruction; former Bush Deputy National Security Advisor J.D. Crouch II; and Franklin Miller, a former top defense official, have also been removed. This story is based on interviews with three current and former officials. In a statement late Wednesday, the Department of Defense confirmed the decision. “As part of long-considered changes, we can confirm that several members of the Department’s Defense Policy Board have been removed,” a defense official said. “We are extremely grateful for their dedicated service, commitment, and contributions to our national security. Future announcements for new members of the board will be made soon.”
The board, overseen by the Pentagon’s top policy official, the undersecretary of defense for policy, serves as a kind of in-house think tank on retainer for top military leaders, providing independent counsel and advice on defense policy. The Defense Policy Board includes former top military brass, secretaries of state, members of Congress, and other senior diplomats and foreign-policy experts. The status of two other members of the panel—or who would replace the ousted members—was not immediately clear.”
Sidney Powell, an attorney working on class action lawsuits on behalf of President Donald J. Trump, was on the Rush Limbaugh show with host Mark Steyn. She talked about her alleged findings against the Dominion Voting system. She added some new shocking details about how American elections’ tabulations were being done in foreign countries and by foreign handlers.
“I am livid about all of this. I am livid about the corruption and that CIA and the FBI haven’t done anything about the complaints they received, which makes me want to find out even more who has been paid what and who is responsible for all of this and got special benefits on the side, Powell said.
Powell has been doing a media blitz and posting about her determination to expose the role that Dominion Voting Systems played in fraudulently removing votes from president Donald J. Trump.
Below is a series of tweets of the show, in 8 parts.
“There are so many problems, mark that it would be hard to articulate all of them. The system was specifically created and designed by Venezuela money and interest to rig elections for Hugo Chavez and Maduro; it was exported internationally, I understand, to rig the election to Argentina, and it has been used to the right his election to make it appear that the votes were for Mr. Biden and Donald Trump won overwhelmingly. I am in the process of collecting evidence through a fire hose to the point that it feels like a Tsunami now, of honest, patriotic people American citizens who are coming forward to tell us exactly what was going on. I just got word today that 100 Dominion [Voting System] employees have taken affiliation with Dominion off their linked in account. And Dominion is scrubbing names of people like crazy,” Powell told Steyn.
“My Math experts told me that the algorithm was switching votes, and its own owners manual tells you that they can do that. It was changed to run 67% for Biden, and votes were injected into that number by the hundreds of thousands multiple times the same number and ratio were injected like three times in Wisconsin and Twice in Michigan or vice versa and 20 minutes apart, or something. It is absurd and for people to say there is no evidence of fraud are the people that want to cover up the fraud for whatever their personal interests are,” she said.
“it is coming in that whoever bought these Dominion systems for their states got special benefits on the side, and I mean the level of corruption is what the American people have felt for a long time. We are just now getting people to come forward, and they realize that I am here, and I will fight for it until we get it out there,” Powell said.
“The guys, and I don’t know whose payroll they are on, need to be fired,” Powell said about the people in the Trump administration who Steyn called the “Deep State” and have certified that 2020 was the cleanest election ever.
“Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren have complained about this, and a few years ago Carolyn Maloney wrote a letter years ago, and they are even scrubbing the articles they have cited from the internet, we have gone to find links, and they are gone, and I do not doubt at this point that this involves the tech companies and Silicon Valley who are also trying to suppress our free speech on all of these issues to cover their own you know whats.
“I think the evidence is going to be overwhelming, and I would warn any state right now that that thinks they are going to certify this election to rethink it very seriously because what they are certifying is their own fraud and their own complicity in the fraud, and I might even bring a class action suit later to sue them, themselves for their participation in this. It is ridiculous. The legislatures in the states need to take control right now and reject the certification, especially the swing states that were so heavily influenced by the hundreds of thousands of vote changes and in the Smart Tech manual tells you that they can do this, that they can change any vote they want to change and reallocate any id from one vote to another, they can take batches of votes and trash them, if they were for Trump and add votes for Biden they can be manipulated any way they want to be manipulated. They had VBN actions and access, and I think Raheem Kassam tweeted a picture yesterday of Glenn Simpson looking behind a screen of Dominion voting machines,” Powell said.
“The machine was created to cheat for Venezuelan elections,” she said.
“It was created to do this, and the counts go to Barcelona Spain and Frankfurt Germany and where they can be further manipulated before they sent back to be reported on the AP and the New York Times and all of that. And why it was caught this time was because Donald Trump’s lead was so overwhelming it didn’t calculate that algorithm high enough, and that is why they had to stop counting at 8,” Powell said.
“You may as well call them Venezuelan machines, using several different companies, but yes, we have Venezuelan Communists who are counting and Cuban Communists who are counting our votes and deciding how our election is going to come out. It is an absolute outrage. It should be being investigated by the highest of our intel investigators, preferably military, because it is a national security threat. That is exactly why they have done this, and don’t forget China’s influence on all of it too. There is Chinese money in this,” she said.
“There are numerous ways that the machines alter the algorithms. They can add and subtract votes and change the numbers of votes, and if they don’t like it again, they can change it Barcelona. The hand count in Georgia that they are doing now they are going to try to use to say that the Dominion fraud in the software is a hoax, that is bologna, they did all kinds of different things there that include closing out Republican accounts and doing provisional ballots for people that then disappeared ad we have got to have access to machines themselves to get the software and examine it, but we know that the glitches in Georgia, that anytime there was a glitch like that there was software probably uploaded because they can change things over the internet, they have never had an internet connection before. Patches were put in the day before the election, and they were never certified. The machines are not supposed to be touched before the election. That is a violation of law by itself.
” I have been told that there are special concerns about the Governor of Georgia that and the Secretary of State has received some personal benefit for rushing the purchase of the Dominion machines into the state. These machines are so hackable that the 15-year-old could do it.
“If he [SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts] doesn’t take it [Dominion case], he should be impeached. I feel very optimistic that the truth is going to get out. Everyone on Earth is suppressing the story. I am going to release the Kraken, “she said.
From Gov.Tech.com, in their article from July 30, 2019, Georgia Awards $107M Voting Machine Contract to Dominion, appears to confirm, in part, of what Powell said on the Rush Limbaugh show:
“Georgia officials awarded a contract for 30,000 new voting machines to Dominion Voting on Monday, scrapping the state’s 17-year-old electronic voting equipment and replacing it with touchscreens that print out paper ballots.
The announcement is a defining moment for Georgia’s elections, reintroducing paper ballots to Election Day voting for the first time since the state converted to electronic ballots in 2002 following the controversial presidential election between Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore.
Dominion, a Denver-based company, won the contract in large part because it offered Georgia the lowest-cost system among three companies that submitted bids, according to evaluation score sheets. Though ES&S scored higher on the government’s criteria for a replacement voting system, Dominion came out on top when the price of its system was taken into account.”
Numerous threads and posts full of research are available on Twitter about the alleged raid in Frankfurt Germany, which has not been verified at this point but points to numerous ties with counting software from what Powell laid out on the Limbaugh show on Monday.
We are not yet able to confirm any “military raid” happened as described by Rep. Louie Gohmert, but that is a question on the minds of many people, so I will keep digging and asking about it.
This is a broadcast Gohmert made, which can not be validated at this time, with any firm details.
Megachurch pastor, black conservative, and evangelical adviser to President Trump Harry R. Jackson, Jr. died on Monday, November 9th at the age of 66 years old.
Christianity Today called him a “herald of a new black church and a voice of black conservatism.”
Jackson was a fierce advocate of socially conservative issues, especially in defending the unborn right to life and the sanctity of traditional marriage. But he did his best to avoid strict partisanship.
Jackson was also a registered Democrat, and through his years he often advocated for criminal justice reform and government involvement in the economic uplifting of the African-American community.
“Being able to say I’m a registered Democrat disarms many of the people who want to write me off as an ‘Oreo’ or an ‘Uncle Tom.’ There are a whole lot of black Christians who may not be Republicans but who share similar moral values. So I appeal to the fact that more than two million black babies have been lost to abortion over the last four years and that over 70 percent of black babies are born to unwed mothers.”
Jackson was born in Cincinnati in 1953. After being passed over by the New England Patriots, he earned an English degree at Williams College in Massachusetts and then proceeded to a Master’s degree in business administration at Harvard University.
He worked as a salesman for Republic Steel before joining ministry in the late 1970s after the death of his father. After nearly a decade of holding small church services, he took up a position at Hope Christian Church, an independent charismatic megachurch in Beltsville, Maryland.
It was during the George W. Bush administrations that Jackson began to rise in political prominence. He called his congregants to stand up for socially conservative values, but also challenged them beyond partisanship.
“What I believe,” said Jackson in 2005, “is that the whole left and right paradigm that politics has chosen to create for itself is fundamentally incorrect because the Bible has both what we call left and right issues.”
Jackson believed Democrats took advantage of the African-American community, and that Republicans took for granted their white evangelical base.
In 2016, Jackson prayed at the inauguration of President Trump, and became one of Trump’s unofficial evangelical advisers. He has attended many events at the White House since.
In response to critics, Jackson said, “You can’t be a prophet to the culture while you’re standing outside of the room.”
This past Good Friday, Jackson was invited to pray at the White House. Trump introduced him as “a highly respected gentleman who is a member of our faith and a person that we have tremendous respect for.”
Jackson prayed, “Lord, cover us with a cloud by day and a fire by night. Lord let e pluribus unum be a reality in us. Let there be a uniting of America. Heal the divide between race, class, and gender. Once again give this great man our president, and give the vice president wisdom beyond their limitations.”
Hope Christian Church announced his death on their website last week:
“It is with a heavy heart that we notify you that our beloved Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. has transitioned to be with the Lord on November 9, 2020. Information about the memorial service will be forthcoming. Please pray for the Jackson Family’s comfort and respect their right to privacy at this time.”
Jackson was recently re-married after the death of his first wife in 2018.
President Donald J. Trump posted on his Twitter timeline to encourage people to watch a show on Fox and Friends with radio talk show host, Mark Levin.
Newsmax covered the Starr interview and wrote,”he disputed Pennsylvania ballot extension forced by state courts over the legislature is a “constitutional travesty,” according to famed prosecutor Ken Starr.
“What happened in Pennsylvania over these recent weeks is a constitutional travesty,” Starr told Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin.” “Gov. [Tom] Wolf tries to get his reforms, his vision, as he was entitled to do, through the legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He failed.
“He then goes to the state Supreme Court, which by a divided vote, accepted the substance of what Gov. Wolf was doing, and then added thereon nooks and crannies as well.”
Starr also noted it is a “crime” to “count every vote,” because counting illegal votes is against the Constitution.”
HANS VON SPAKOVSKY
Levin’s second guest was Hans von Spakovsky, Manager, Election Law Reform Initiative and Senior Legal Fellow, Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, for Heritage Foundation.
On the show, Spakovsky talked about many of the points in his most recent article.
“We all knew Election Day 2020 wouldn’t be normal. And yet it still seems remarkable that we don’t know yet who will be the president of the United States on Jan. 20.
And we may not know for some time if we’ll have four more years of President Donald Trump or a newly inaugurated President Joe Biden.
Even if news organizations declare a winner in the close presidential race, that’s not the official result. States have until Dec. 8 to settle any election disputes and certify their results before the meeting of state electors in every state Dec. 14, when they cast their Electoral College votes for president.
While knowing who won a presidential election usually doesn’t take this long, it isn’t unprecedented if it does. Think back to Bush v. Gore. There, the race between Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President Al Gore wasn’t decided until December, when the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in to end any further vote recounts in Florida because of the mistakes made by state courts and election officials.
Everyone hopes it won’t come to that again, but election-related litigation is already underway at a dizzying pace and could play a key role in deciding what has morphed into an incredibly tight race.
The litigation in Pennsylvania started well before Election Day. An evenly divided U.S. Supreme Court deadlocked 4-4 and left in place a ruling by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court requiring officials to count absentee ballots received by Friday, Nov. 6.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court had also ruled that state officials could not reject late-received ballots unless they could produce evidence that the ballot was mailed after Election Day—and that they could not reject ballots due to mismatched voter signatures. That’s a basic ballot integrity procedure used in many jurisdictions.
The U.S. Supreme Court also declined a subsequent request to rule on the merits of the dispute before the election, and may now have put itself in the unenviable position of ruling on the merits of the dispute after the election—which could, in effect, decide the outcome. Presumably recognizing this fact, President Trump’s campaign filed a motion Wednesday to intervene in the case.
Still, that’s not the only pending litigation in Pennsylvania. It gets messy, so hold on.
Also on Wednesday, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit seeking to allow observers to be close enough to actually observe the counting of ballots in Philadelphia. A Pennsylvania state trial court rejected the request, but the next day, a Pennsylvania appellate court reversed the ruling.
The appeals court said that “effective immediately … all candidates, watchers, or candidate representatives [shall] be permitted to be present for the canvassing process … and be permitted to observe all aspects of the canvassing process within 6 feet, while adhering to all COVID-19 protocols, including, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.”

The Philadelphia Board of Elections filed an emergency petition that same day (Thursday) with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, asking it to overturn the appellate court’s decision. The petition remains pending there.
But that’s not the end of this particular saga.
After the Pennsylvania intermediate appellate court issued its order, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Philadelphia claiming that the Board of Elections is “nonetheless continuing to count ballots, without any observations by any representatives or poll watchers of President Trump and the Republican Party.”
Clearly, this issue remains to be resolved, given that Philadelphia is apparently refusing to comply with the court order.
The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee also filed a lawsuit where they argued that the Pennsylvania secretary of state wrongly extended the deadline from Nov. 9 to Nov. 12 for absentee and mail-in voters to provide missing proof of identification.
A Pennsylvania state court judge ordered that “the county boards of elections shall segregate ballots for which identification is received and verified on November 10, 11, and 12, 2020, from ballots for which identification is received and verified on or before November 9, 2020,” pending resolution of the matter.
Republican candidates and officials also filed a lawsuit challenging Montgomery County officials’ decision to notify voters whose ballots are defective and giving them a chance to “cure” the defects—something not authorized under state law.
Other outside groups, such as the Public Interest Legal Foundation, have also filed lawsuits. The foundation specifically filed a suit against the Pennsylvania Department of State for failing to maintain accurate voter rolls and remove individuals who have died, moved out of state, or otherwise become ineligible to vote.
Georgia and Michigan
President Trump’s campaign lost legal challenges in both Georgia and Michigan on Thursday.
In Georgia, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit after a GOP observer said he had observed Chatham County (Savannah) election officials comingling late ballots with on-time ballots. Absentee ballots in Georgia must be received by the end of Election Day. After hearing testimony from both sides of the dispute, a Georgia state court judge dismissed the case.
In Michigan, like in Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign filed a suit against the secretary of state asking to be allowed to “meaningfully participate and oversee” the vote-counting process.
However, because the vote counting, done primarily by local officials, had already been completed, the judge denied the request. She said that in her view, there was no meaningful relief left to provide.
Other claims were also raised in Georgia and rejected. What is unexplained is why election officials refused to comply with a state law that requires qualified poll watchers to be able to observe every aspect of the voting and ballot-counting process.
Just like in Philadelphia, one has to wonder—what were they trying to hide?
The Trump campaign has also teased, but hasn’t yet filed, a lawsuit in Nevada where it alleges that many ineligible voters—some deceased, some non-residents—cast votes. The significant problems with Nevada’s voter rolls have been well documented, including by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which recently produced a video showing voters illegally registered at commercial businesses such as casinos and pawn shops, as well as vacant lots.
In Arizona, the Public Interest Legal Foundation has also filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County on behalf of voters who claim they were unable to cast a ballot due to errors by election officials. They allege they were given Sharpies to complete their ballots, even though the computer scanners used with opti-scan paper ballots cannot process such ballots.
Clearly, this election has generated significant litigation. We can’t help but wonder if a lot of it could have been avoided if election officials had heeded our warnings about the dangers of mail-in voting and changing election procedures too close to an election without their state legislature’s approval.
We might also have avoided some of these problems if election officials had complied with their state laws guaranteeing candidates and political parties complete access to the process. Failure to do so damages the transparency essential to maintaining public confidence in the integrity of elections.
Two things should be kept in mind.
First, gathering the evidence of misconduct, fraud, and other problems that may have compromised an election is extremely difficult and expensive. As an Indiana state court pointed out in an election fraud case in 2004, “the time constraints that govern election contests, primarily designed to serve important interests and needs of election officials and the public interest in finality, simply do not work well in those elections where misconduct” is widespread and multifaceted.
Second, courts are usually very reluctant to overturn election results even with substantial evidence of possible problems that raise questions about the legitimacy of the outcome. Thus, no matter what the merits are of the claims being made by the Trump campaign, they face an uphill battle in the courts.
Here’s what’s clear at this point: Every legally cast ballot should count and be counted. Those that were not legally cast should not.
Hopefully, this litigation will be a reminder that clear election rules established by state legislatures well before an election can avoid delays and problems after an election. The same is true if election officials comply with the law instead of defying it.
In other words, as Benjamin Franklin wisely advised in 1736: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Some in the American media are projecting Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 Presidential election over the concerns of Americans, and over the unsettled lawsuits, in the hopes of motivating their base to assume an early victory dance.
But we have been right here before, America, and the American media know the rules. As Congressman Fred Keller posted on Twitter, on Saturday and the call had been made by CNN and Fox News that Joe Biden is the winner of the election, that it is indeed citizens, meaning their representatives, who determine the outcome of political elections.
The Media knows that too, and hs only to co back 20 twenty years to the race between George Bush and Al Gore to remember that when the Democrat was running behind, they knew it was Congress that certified the Electoral College Vote.
In 2001 The New York Times wrote,”Congressional certification of Electoral College vote, usually quick and … black House members time and again to make official the election of his … Over Some Objections, Congress Certifies Electoral Vote ..” they wrote.
The article is behind a paywall, but here is proof that in 2001 the New York Times understood the process of certification for the US Presidency.
Friday night, Republican Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida made statements on Fox News
“A full audit is absolutely necessary. We should get injunctions if necessary. And if I have to do it, I’ll fight on the floor of the House of Representatives to stop the ElectoralCollege from being certified,” Gaetz said.
Lt. Col Tony Shaffer posted on his timeline that the electoral college will meet on December 14, 2020 and so it is expected that we will not know the real winner until that time.
Propaganda outlets like far left leaning Hollywood Reporter incorrectly reported that Joe Biden had been elected.
Even left leaning AP had to admit that the Propaganda that Biden had won, as of Saturday, was not accurate.
According to the AP:
“Saturday’s election verdict isn’t the last step in selecting an American president. Under a system that’s been tweaked over two centuries, there is still a weekslong timeline during which the 538-member Electoral College picks the president.
A look at the key steps:
— When American citizens vote for a presidential candidate, they really are voting for electors in their state. Those electors in most cases are committed to support the voters’ candidate of choice. The number of electors is equal to the number of electoral votes held by each state. State laws vary on how electors are selected but, generally, a slate of electors for each party’s candidate is chosen at state party conventions or by a vote of a party’s central committee.
— After Election Day, states count and certify the results of the popular vote. When completed, each governor is required by law to prepare “as soon as practicable” documents known as “Certificates of Ascertainment” of the vote. The certificates list the electors’ names and the number of votes cast for the winner and loser. The certificate, carrying the seal of each state, is sent to the archivist of the United States.”
Just remember, we have been here before:
But don’t just listen to me, here is some great research by VOA News:
Many people assume the winner of the U.S. presidential contest is determined once the media calls the race and the losing candidate delivers a concession speech. But the truth is that formally declaring a presidential winner is a months-long process that won’t be completed until January.
That process essentially involves Americans voting for electors, the electors voting for the president, and then Congress declaring the winner.
“There’s Election Day, where those electors are elected; there’s the date in December where the electors meet and then vote for president; and then there’s the date in January where the Congress certifies that election,” says Amy Dacey, executive director of the Sine Institute of Policy and Politics at American University.
In addition to the Electoral College, certifying the winner of the presidential election involves the Senate, House of Representatives and the National Archives.
This process is the result of a compromise among the Founding Fathers, who weren’t convinced voters could be trusted to choose a worthy leader.”
