House Dems vote to make DC a state

Gateway PunditOn Thursday the US House voted to make the District of Columbia a state.
Today the Biden Administration announced they supported the bill.

Doing this legally would require a constitutional amendment, which won't pass. However, if the Dems can pass this through the House and Senate, and elect Senators from DC in 2022, or perhaps even earlier via special elections, they can use the new majority to pack the Supreme Court with a simple majority in the Senate.

The Democrats are trying to parley a very slim majority into absolute power.

Allegations of DOJ/intel dirty tricks

Just The NewsIn an extraordinary claim of misconduct, a prominent political bundler convicted of fund-raising and lobbying offenses alleged Monday that a U.S. government agency deleted evidence from his computer and left him to take the blame for obstruction.

Lawyers for Imaad Zuberi argued the government's alleged duplicity in the deletion may only be "the proverbial tip of the iceberg" and that federal prosecutors have shown "a pattern animus" by withholding exculpatory evidence showing they were seeking a 12-year prison sentence against Zuberi while allowing a foreign fund-raiser in a similar case to escape punishment with a deferred prosecution agreement.

I find these allegations particularly interesting. Here's my theory: this guy was known to law enforcement and intelligence. He was their agent in channeling donations to their preferred candidates, like Hillary and Obama (both of which he fundraised for). When Trump won, the intel agencies tasked him with trying to "dirty up" Trump by donating to Trump's inauguration and trying to get favors in return. This would allow the FBI to immediately put him under investigation and wiretap him, trying to parley the resulting evidence into getting someone in the Trump administration for bribery or the like. When that effort failed, the only thing they could do was go after their own agent to make it look like a real investigation instead of an attempted political sting.

And the emails that were deleted likely contained the official DOJ/intel instructions for this guy to do exactly what he did.

Speculation? Sure. But it makes sense, and we already know the intel agencies, DOJ, and FBI are willing and able to engage in dirty tricks.

Cause of death for Sicknick was natural

Conservative TreehouseThe DC Medical Examiner released findings today showing Sicknick died from natural causes, blood clots and two strokes suffered on the day after the Capitol Hill Protest

It's now official. The only person to die due to violence during the "riots" was shot by a capitol police officer who still has not been identified. Trump supporters killed no one. Several other Trump supporters died of various medical issues, unrelated to direct violence against them.

Millions of election dollars flowed to AR,GA in addition to other states

Gateway PunditWhere did the millions go? Maricopa County Arizona, one of the largest counties in the nation, received $3 million in ‘Zuckerbucks’ from a Democrat non-profit before the election. No one knows who accepted it or where it went.

Gateway PunditGeorgia’s Raffensperger did it too – received millions in ‘Zuckerbucks’ and the best information is that he spent it on public service announcements promoting his election actions. A group directly linked to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg donated nearly $5.6 million to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office last year…

…The Georgia Star News contacted Raffensperger’s communications staff Monday for comment. Raffensperger Spokesman Walter Jones, in his emailed response, took a dig at this publication.

“Any grant or funding source, as allowed by Georgia law, has enabled this and local elections offices to combat disinformation similar to recent articles published by this outlet that undermine the confidence of Georgia voters,” Jones said referring to the events of last year.


Jones did not specifically describe how Raffensperger spent the money — but the CEIR website did.

“Georgia used CEIR grant funds in both the November general election and January runoff election to encourage voters to apply for a ballot online,” the CEIR website said.

“This approach sped up the process for both voters and election officials while also making it easier to track application status. Georgia also used the funds to counteract disinformation, issuing public service announcements warning voters of disinformation and encouraging them to report fraud to the Secretary of State hotline.”

Well, that explains both of those locations. With hundreds of millions flowing in, do you really think none of it stuck to the right pockets?

Supreme Court declines PA absentee ballot case

YahooThe Supreme Court won't take an appeal by Pennsylvania Republicans claiming that the state's secretary of state exceeded its authority when expanding deadlines for mail-in ballots last year due to the pandemic, according to NBC News.

This was a clear violation of the law by the PA SecState. The SC had, prior to the election, issued injunctions which strongly suggested they would take the case and likely reverse the SecState's action. But somewhere between then and now, they lost their nerve.

Decisions like this strongly suggest that Democratic threats to pack the courts have worked like a charm.

Maricopa County AZ election audit poised to begin

Just The NewsThe Arizona Senate is poised to begin a major audit of over two million ballots cast in the 2020 election in the state's largest county, a process the state Senate president claims has been stymied by county officials and which the county claims rests on legally uncertain ground.

Senate subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for information and equipment needed to perform the audit have been pending since Dec. 15, 2020 and were upheld by a judge on Feb. 25. In mid-March, the state Senate announced that Republicans in that chamber would be conducting a "broad and detailed" review of Maricopa's ballots, one that would involve "testing the machines, scanning the ballots, performing a full hand count and checking for any IT breaches," among other approaches.

The ballots and machines are being moved now.

Is the Arizona election audit pointless?

Daily Pundit (SteveF)You’ve no doubt seen news of the ballot recount in Arizona. Republicans (not Nevertrump RINOs) pushed for the audit, raised money, and jumped through all the hoops needed to get the order. Democrats, the establishment, and Nevertrumpers (some category overlap) objected and made noises about records being destroyed before the audit but they didn’t put their money where their mouths were.

Does anyone over the age of six think that Biden will be thrown out and Trump reinstalled as the legitimate President? Does anyone think the Supreme Court will take up the challenges? Does anyone think that anyone above the level of flunky will be hauled before a judge, let alone see the inside of a jail cell?

I don't disagree with the above. Election audits, at this point, will not result in Biden being removed from office. There's a process, flawed and time-limited as it was, and that process put Biden in office. That doesn't, however, mean the election audits are pointless.

Conducting the audits -- if done properly, and if the results do expose massive fraud as many suspect -- will go a long ways towards securing future elections. It will create significant public momentum towards updating election laws and performing audits in other questionable states. It will expose not only that fraud happened, but HOW the fraud happened, informing us of what exactly needs to be secured. And it will do so with the kind of evidence needed to get cowardly legislators to act. If they do not, it will provide powerful arguments in future elections for replacing them with others who will.

At this point, removing Biden from office over election fraud would take impeachment, and that's not going to happen. But removing Democrats from power will require either honest elections or extreme measures. Audits are the pathway to doing so with honest elections.

Democrats push gun control, another mass murder

Just The NewsA gunman killed eight people and wounded several others Thursday night at a FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport before killing himself, according to police. "I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing, and he starts yelling stuff that I could not understand," witness Levi Miller said on WTHR-TV. "What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me."

"Yelling stuff [the witness] could not understand" suggests Islamic terrorism, as those aggressors are famous for yelling "Allah akbar" and other phrases with religious significance.

And isn't it amazing how many mass murders we start getting whenever the Democrats start pushing gun control?

Once more, he was known to the FBI prior to the shooting.

Turns out, he's not named Mohammed, but that doesn't mean it wasn't Islam. No one is saying what it actually was, except "not racially motivated".

Texas House passes constitutional carry

Just The NewsA piece of legislation that would allow Lone Star State handgun owners to carry their weapons in public without a permit was preliminarily passed in the Texas House on Thursday in an 84-56 vote, though it is anticipated that final passage out of the chamber will occur on Friday.

The legislation would also need to clear the state Senate before it would be heading to the governor's desk.

“This bill should be called common sense carry because this bill is about common law-abiding citizens being able to carry commonly owned handguns in common public places for the common reason of personal and family protection. Under this bill, people who are prohibited from possessing a handgun will still be prohibited of possessing a handgun. Sensitive places where the unlicensed carry of a handgun is prohibited will still be prohibited. But if you are a law-abiding citizen age 21 or older that can legally possess a handgun you will be able to carry that handgun in a holster in public places where it is not otherwise prohibited,” Republican state Rep. Matt Schaefer said, NBCDFW.com reported.

Hey, progress.

Might want to mention this to your Senator, if you're in Texas.

CIA operative funded Obama, Clinton before being caught trying to corrupt Trump

Just The NewsJust the News reported last month that as he worked as a bundler raising millions for Barack Obama's 2012 campaign, Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign and Donald Trump's inaugural committee, Zuberi had been working as an asset for U.S. intelligence on counterterrorism and counterintelligence operations across the globe dating to the early 2000s. His intelligence community relationship first came to light when a secret CIPA filing was mentioned in an unsealed court filing in his criminal case. The Wall Street Journal recently confirmed Just the News' reporting.

But Zuberi's world came crashing down when prosecutors began investigating whether his money to the Trump inauguration came from foreign sources. In the end, it did not. But prosecutors found other crimes involving illegal foreign and straw donations, tax violations and a foreign lobbying infraction. Zuberi agreed to plead guilty late last year and then he was sentenced in February to 12 years in prison, one of the harshest sentences ever for campaign and lobbying offenses. The unexpected sentence prompted him to appeal, and hire Eatinger to take lead.

The specter of a major political donor — now convicted of a federal felony — secretly working for the CIA seems ripped from a Hollywood script. The fact that the CIA's former top spy lawyer joined his legal team only added to the movie-like storyline.

But the IG complaints raise more serious issues, including the possibility that American political figures, U.S. citizens and a news organization may have been used wittingly or unwittingly for espionage operations.

Anyone still under the delusion that the CIA stays out of domestic politics just got disabused.

It's important too to take note of the sequence of events.

He fundraised for Obama: nothing happened to him.
He fundraised for Clinton: nothing happened to him.
He fundraised for Trump: suddenly he's facing criminal charges.

Wouldn't it be remarkably convenient to have a corruption scandal involving Trump from the earliest possible moment after they realized Trump won? ie, Trump's inauguration? The investigation would make a great excuse for surveillance on anyone this guy managed to talk to and involve in his schemes, wouldn't it? And then he could conveniently roll over on higher ups and get off with a wrist-slap and a federal witness protection program.

Democrats plan to pack the court, add 4 seats

Gateway Pundit“The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9. The number of justices on the Court has fluctuated widely throughout the course of the nation’s history. Republicans currently hold 6 seats, while Democrats hold just 3 after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the quick confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett.” The Intercept reported.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and Rep. Mondaire Jones are leading the charge in the House and it’s being backed by Ed Markey (MA) in the Senate.

Not even FDR managed to pack the court, though he tried -- and arguably the threat of doing so caused the court to stop striking down his programs, so FDR got what he wanted. Democrats seek to recreate the same dynamic by threatening to pack the court with four (!!) more justices despite holding only very narrow majorities in the House and technically no majority at all in the Senate (Kamala Harris' tie breaking vote in the only thing giving them primacy there).

Whether by packing the court directly or by threat of doing so, the Democrats plan to neutralize the potentially significant 6-3 advantage Republicans now hold on the court.

Unfortunately, Roberts has already all but switched sides, making the practical majority 5-4. And even that majority was insufficient to decide the electoral fraud cases in 2020. If the Democrats do succeed in packing the court, they will hold an 8-5 majority. And their justices vote in lockstep when required.

Passage of this legislation would be a disaster with generational consequences.

Pelosi claims she has no intention of bringing the legislation to the floor of the House for a vote. That just reinforces the idea that the legislation is intended as a threat. It will remain there, without a vote, so long as the court behaves the way Pelosi wants them to.

A Republican proposal suggests a Constitutional Amendment to set the court size. It won't pass now, but it might later.

No charges for capitol police officer who shot Ashli Babbit

Conservative TreehouseThe U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice will not pursue criminal charges against the U.S. Capitol Police officer involved in the fatal shooting of 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, the Office announced today.

I've personally watched the video where Babbit was shot. Babbit was arguably entering into the house building by force, but she was unarmed and threatening no one. I observed no threat of deadly force from her. I observed the still-unidentified police officer shoot her from effective concealment (only his hands and arms were visible), without an audible warning. He had a clear path to retreat, additional officers close by on the other side of the doors, and every opportunity to deescalate the situation with Babbitt personally.

Even if he was legally in the right (which, for all practical purposes, depends on the details of federal and DC laws combined with the proven lack of stomach for actual prosecution of this case), this was an easily avoidable shooting.

Should he still have one, that officer's conscience should torment him for the rest of his life.

CNN admits to broadcasting propaganda

PJMediaIn the latest Project Veritas sting video, CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester admits that his network used “propaganda” in an effort to ensure that President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. Chester takes credit for Trump’s loss and confesses that the network created at least one story that was “all speculation” in order to defeat the president. He also says that as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic tapers off, CNN plans to “milk” climate alarmism for all it’s worth.

That it's propaganda is hardly news. That CNN admits to it is.

Project Veritas is hinting that it has more, something that may have prompted them to sue CNN. Here are all three parts, after Twitter banned James O'Keefe who says he will sue.

Nevada SecState censured over stolen election

Gateway PunditJoe Biden won Nevada in the 2020 election by 34,000 votes. There was much more corruption included in these numbers than the winning margin. Yesterday the Nevada Secretary of State was censored for her role in the state’s corrupt 2020 election results.

Biden pays off Cindy McCain

Just the NewsPresident Biden is preparing to nominate Cindy McCain, the wife of late-Republican Sen. John McCain, to an ambassadorship in Western Europe, according to a news report Monday. During the 2020 presidential election, McCain's support for Biden helped him win in Red state Arizona, which her husband represented in Congress.

Both McCains hated Trump and were big players in Republican politics in Arizona. Why would Biden appoint a Republican ambassador unless Cindy McCain did him a big favor? I suspect that "big favor" was arranging for Arizona to go Biden's way. Cindy gets a no-show sinecure as her payoff.

Susan Rice takes charge of expanding vote-by-mail

She either did it on her own, or at the order of Barack Obama and those who control him.

The amount of effort they are putting into securing their changes to election procedures, by any means necessary, suggests they know damn well that they lost.

Written instructions for Detroit election handling found

Just The NewsNewly obtained printed absentee ballot instructions for election workers in Detroit confirm that oral instructions described by a city election worker in a post-election sworn affidavit would have been egregious violations of city election rules.

The instructions, obtained by Just the News through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, were crystal clear concerning signature matching and ballot dating: Verification of signatures on absentee ballots was mandatory, and ballots were to be stamped with the date on which they are received.

Detroit election worker Jessy Jacob, a longtime city employee, testified in November that she was instructed by supervisors to ignore signatures on absentee ballots and to fraudulently backdate late-arriving absentee ballots to make them appear to be valid.

To be clear: The written instructions match what the law requires, and multiple individuals have testified under penalty of perjury that they were given different, illegal, verbal instructions during the election.

Indiana AG investigates Big Tech

Gateway PunditRepublican Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced on Wednesday that he has launched an investigation into five Big Tech companies.

The investigation targets Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter and will look to see if these companies “have potentially harmed Indiana consumers through business practices that are abusive, deceptive and/or unfair.”

The answer is of course they have. But what remedies can a single state apply that would make a difference to their behavior? Financial penalties are essentially meaningless.

New York to offer $16K payments to illegal aliens

Conservative TreehouseNew York is reportedly going to spend $2.1 Billion on a fund to give illegal aliens COVID relief payments up to $15,600 per person. Beyond all the initial reactions to illegal aliens gaining seven times as much covid relief as citizen taxpayers, or even getting them at all, one little aspect remains undiscussed.

The only reason New York can afford to do this is because they received a massive amount of bailout support from within the Pelosi-Biden blue state relief effort.

In essence, U.S. taxpayers are subsiding New York’s ability to pay illegal aliens $15,000 each. Let that sink in…

They are also offering paid leave to federal workers who want to "volunteer" to help illegals.

Serious concerns about the coronavirus

Meaning In HistoryI got a range of responses regarding the Michael Yeadon interview that I republished yesterday. Overall it was well received, but there were some commenters who reflected the response that Yeadon himself describes having received--people who say, I can't believe my rulers would lie to me. That, despite the fact that throughout history our rulers--including rulers of the American people--have repeatedly lied to us about fundamentally important matters.

Right up front I'll state the conclusion to this post: Yes, reverse transcription (RT) looks to be one among several factors that should give everyone pause to question the current rush to vax the whole world.

I'm not interested in being a guinea pig for a new vaccination technique against a relatively harmless (at my age and health) disease. Not even if millions of people are doing it and governments are insisting on it. Especially if governments are insisting on it.

Election Auditor Pulitzer offered $10M to drop audit

Gateway PunditJovan Hutton Pulitzer was on “The Professor’s Record” with professor David K. Clements from New Mexico State University. During his interview, Pulitzer said he was recently offered $10 million to walk away from his efforts to scan the ballots and determine the number of valid votes in the 2020 election in various states.

The claim is right at the beginning of the interview as a teaser. At least the first 20 minutes of the interview is basically Pulitzer bragging about his history. If you're just looking for election information, I don't know how much more is in there. (The election topic comes up about 35-40 minutes into the video).

For me, I'd love to know who made that offer, and who was behind the person making the offer.

FBI requests delay in production of Seth Rich records

Gateway PunditThe FBI is again requesting delays in their lawfully required efforts to produce all documents in the Seth Rich case. This has gone on for years with no penalty to the FBI or DOJ. They get to it when they can.

Today the legal team, including Ty Clevenger, received a document from the FBI and DOJ where they again make excuses and request additional time to produce documents it has related to Seth Rich. They now are saying they have at least 1,563 pages of potentially responsive information that they need more time to get through:

I'm assuming this information and delay request is related to the recent claim from the same attorney that Durham may need to delete some information he has concerning Seth Rich. Is the FBI delaying in the hopes that Durham will delete it?
