Lawsuit filed in Ohio over Dominion machine decision

Gateway Pundit“The process engaged in by the Board of Elections was not transparent and open to the public. Right before voting on the contract with Dominion, the board excluded the public for eighteen minutes from their discussion and deliberations. Nothing necessitated the public’s exclusion. And for the next months thereafter, they continued to exclude the public when discussing the contract with Dominion. That’s not consistent with both the letter and spirit of Ohio’s Open Meetings Act and we are going to get justice for the residents of Stark County Ohio,” Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America, said in a statement provided to the Gateway Pundit.

Braynard added “further, we are determined to ensure that any voting equipment purchased relies on open source software and hardware. This will restore trust, lower election costs, and create home state jobs for Clark County elections.”

Once again, why are deliberations related to these machines always kept out of public view?

NYAG initiates criminal investigation into Trump org

KEYTNew York Attorney General Letitia James is joining the Manhattan district attorney’s office in a criminal investigation of the Trump Organization, James’ office said Tuesday.

The attorney general office’s investigation into the Trump Organization, which has been underway since 2019, will also continue as a civil probe, but the office recently informed Trump Organization officials of the criminal component.

“We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature. We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA,” James’ spokesman Fabien Levy told CNN. “We have no additional comment.”

Just like her investigation into the NRA, this is a purely political exercise.

Hopefully, the Trump organization has not been so foolish as to leave itself vulnerable.

Even if it has, it does not change the obvious political motives behind the investigation. I'm frankly sick and tired of Trump being investigated for everything by people who are determined to investigate the person until they can find the crime. That's not how it is supposed to work.

Good luck, Mark

Just The NewsMark McCloskey has announced an election bid to serve as a U.S. senator from the state of Missouri.

"When the angry mob came to destroy my house and kill my family I took a stand against them. Now I'm asking for the privilege to take that stand for all of us. I will never back down," McCloskey said in a campaign video.

During an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, McCloskey said that people in America "are just sick and tired of cancel culture and the poison of critical race theory and the big lie of systemic racism, all backed up by the threat of mob violence."

His experience with the justice system appears to have convinced him it needs reform.

Chinese professor admits to biological war against US

Gateway PunditA senior member of a Chinese Communist Party think tank claimed China won a biological war against the United States in 2020.

The mainstream media is finally catching up with conservative media and reporting that Covid-19 originated in a Wuhan lab.

Covid-19 was then unleashed on the world to cripple western nations, especially the United States.

Ping Chen, a professor of National Development at Peking University in Beijing said China “put the US back in its place.”

Many of the things coming out of China about their virus seem, especially in retrospect, to be obvious propaganda in support of a biological warfare attack. I mean -- obsessive mask buying, then obsessive mask wearing, then obsessive mask selling for huge markups? Masks are useless against this virus; but it sure made a great economic play, didn't it? Videos of people passing out on the street? COVID doesn't do that. Anal swabs leading to penguin waddles? Now you're just shitting me...

The priorities of the modern NRA

Only guns and moneyNow it might just be me but I’d sure as hell rather have seen $18 million spent on fighting gun control and protecting the Second Amendment than on legal shenanigans. Imagine if just a fraction of the money spent on Brewer, Attorneys and Counselors, had been spent in the Georgia run-off election. Instead of a 50-50 Senate with the Democrats running things, Cocaine Mitch would still be running things and would have served as a bulwark against the anti-rights, anti-gun moves of the Biden Administration.

I became a Life Member of the NRA in the early 2000s, mainly so I could vote. The flood of direct mail advertising they subjected me to was frankly very offputting and undoubtedly cost them more to send than they got back (since what they got back after that point was $0). It appears to have only gotten worse since then.

We need an organization like the NRA to fight for gun rights. But it doesn't have to actually be the NRA.

COVID is Biden's slush fund

PoliticoThe Department of Health and Human Services has diverted more than $2 billion meant for other health initiatives toward covering the cost of caring for unaccompanied immigrant children, as the Biden administration grapples with a record influx of migrants on the southern border.

The redirected funds include $850 million that Congress originally allocated to rebuild the nation’s Strategic National Stockpile, the emergency medical reserve strained by the Covid-19 response. Another $850 million is being taken from a pot intended to help expand coronavirus testing, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

I guess all those COVID spending bills were just to prepare a slush fund for Biden, not actually address COVID.

PoliticoThe reshuffling, which HHS detailed to congressional appropriators in notices over the last two months, illustrates the extraordinary financial toll that sheltering more than 20,000 unaccompanied children has taken on the department so far this year, as it scrambled to open emergency housing and add staff and services across the country.

For $100,000 per kid, you could buy them a house. Each.

Fulton County GA admits chain of custody missing for 24% of ballots

Georgia Star NewsIn a stunning admission about the critical chain of custody documents for absentee ballots deposited into drop boxes in the November 3, 2020 election, a Fulton County election official told The Georgia Star News on Wednesday that “a few forms are missing” and that “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.”

A Star News analysis of drop box ballot transfer forms for absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes provided by Fulton County in response to an Open Records Request showed that 385 transfer forms out of an estimated 1,565 transfer forms Fulton County said should have been provided are missing – a number that is significantly greater than “a few” by any objective standard.

Now the interesting question is going to be whether it was missing before the mysterious breakin or will Fulton County officials try to use the breakin as cover for the missing documents?

More analysis.

Who exactly is in charge at the White House?

So there's conflict in Israel, with terrorists in the Gaza strip launching ineffectual rockets at Israel and Israel shooting down the rockets and occasionally shooting back at the terrorists. Rational, sane people would like one of two outcomes; either Israel keep shooting until there are no more terrorists, or both sides stop shooting and negotiate peacefully. But the Biden administration blocked a UN resolution calling for a cease fire. Why? A cease fire seems sane and sensible. I'd prefer all the terrorists be dead, but that comes with civilian costs too, and if they stop shooting maybe they can stop being terrorists eventually. And the Biden administration agreed when it called for a cease fire a few hours later...

Say what? They blocked a UN call for a cease fire and then issued their own?

Either someone in the Biden Administration is really, really, really desperate to get "Biden Administration calls for cease fire" as a headline, or no one is actually in charge and people are making it up as they go along.

I'm betting on the latter.

Sad but true

Instapundit“Public discourse,” she writes, “does not consist of competing arguments any more: it isn’t a proper discussion at all. It is a diatribe in which one side tries to destroy, or prohibit, or totally suppress the other.”

She warns that we are on the verge—or perhaps past the verge—of “a Dark Age where reason and actual disputation are considered dangerous: where views contrary to those being imposed by what are often nothing more than activist cults can be criminalized. Not only must those who now hold opinions which breach orthodoxy be banned but historic figures who could not possibly have anticipated current social attitudes must be anathematized as well.”

Daley sees a parallel between our situation the age of religious absolutism in the West when the Church busied itself enrolling books by David Hume and John Locke on its Index Librorum Prohibitorum.

Be that as it may, Daley is surely right that the question is not whether you approve of any particular opinion but whether you insist that orthodoxy be accepted, indeed celebrated, without question or examination.

America has been reduced to two ideological camps shouting at one another.

AZ audit: 5-10% of ballots missing and/or blank?

National FileSeveral hundred thousand votes that were counted in Maricopa County, Arizona are associated with missing ballots, according to an audit organizer who is speaking regularly with people on the audit floor.

“We found a ballot shortage, anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of the votes,” Josh Barnett, an audit organizer who led the affidavit drive to make the audit happen, tells NATIONAL FILE. “It looks like a couple hundred thousand ballots are unaccounted for. The ballots are missing.”

“I also know that there were boxes filled with blank ballots in those pallets. There were blanks in there,” Barnett said, citing a person who is frequently at the audit site as part of the audit process. “They (election officials) were doing it for appearance, to try to hide the fact that ballots are missing by saying, ‘It’s okay, they’re all right here.’ But the ballots are blank.”

I'm a little skeptical about these reports, as the audit has (until now?) been very careful about not reporting anything until publishing a final report. But, if true, it would be a dramatic exposure of fraud and likely change the outcome of the presidential race in Arizona (and possibly others). More analysis here.

InstapunditThe ATF has unleashed their proposed rule to change the “Definition of ‘Frame or Receiver’ and Identification of Firearms” and it’s as ugly as it sounds.

If enacted, 2021R-05 would drastically change the Federal definition of a firearm receiver. For starters, this proposed rule would outlaw 3D printing, parts kits, 80% lowers, and other home-built firearms and would apply FFL rules to individuals.

Online censorship

City JournalAt the end of a recent 800-meter race in Oregon, a high school runner named Maggie Williams got dizzy, passed out, and landed face-first just beyond the finish line. She and her coach blamed her collapse on a deficit of oxygen due to the mask she’d been forced to wear, and state officials responded to the public outcry by easing their requirements for masks during athletic events. But long before the pandemic began, scientists had repeatedly found that wearing a mask could lead to oxygen deprivation. Why had this risk been ignored?

One reason is that a new breed of censors has been stifling scientific debate about masks on social media platforms. When Scott Atlas, a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force, questioned the efficacy of masks last year, Twitter removed his tweet. When eminent scientists from Stanford and Harvard recently told Florida governor Ron DeSantis that children should not be forced to wear masks, YouTube removed their video discussion from its platform. These acts of censorship were widely denounced, but the social media science police remain undeterred, as I discovered when I recently wrote about the harms to children from wearing masks.

It's a glimpse inside the censorship process.

Conservative TreehouseIn this video investigative report Sharri Markson reveals how the Wuhan Institute of Virology kept live bats in cages with new footage from inside the facility. This footage proves the denials from World Health Organization investigators were false. The WHO previously said any suggestion the Wuhan lab was conducting SARS experiments on bats was a “conspiracy”.

Additionally, all of the 15,000 bat research files were removed from the Wuhan Lab in September of 2019 right before the Pandemic exploded on the world.

$5M book deal for Cuomo

Just The NewsNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sold the rights to his book titled "American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic" for a whopping $5.12 million, tax records indicate.

The New York Post reported that according to the tax returns, Cuomo received $3.12 million of the total last year, but after factoring in legal and editing costs it amounted to a little over $3 million of taxable income. Cuomo is slated to receive the remaining $2 million over this year and next, the outlet reported, citing the tax returns.

Almost all COVID deaths had at least 2 co-morbidities

Gateway PunditThe gist of the report was that COVID-19 is not nearly as deadly as first projected by the WHO and then by Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Debra Birx. Based on CDC numbers in Ausust only 6% of all deaths attributed to COVID-19 were instances where the only factor in the individual’s death was due to COVI9-19.
For all the other deaths reported by the CDC linked to COVID-19, the individuals who passed away had 2-3 other serious illnesses or co-morbidities.

The entire thing was an exercise in deliberately panicking the public.

Texas: A living counterexample

Newsweekexas Governor Greg Abbott caught heat from Democratic lawmakers when he announced on March 2 this year he would fully reopen the state by the next week. Mississippi lawmakers declared a similar reopening plan about the same time.

The idea was to get more people acclimated back to normal life, including businesses at full capacity and sports arenas full of fans again. For Texas, the governor wanted businesses back at 100 percent and placed filled up again, from school halls to dance halls.

President Joe Biden called such reopening plans as "Neanderthals thinking."

On Sunday, just a couple of hours after a major PGA event in Dallas and the NCAA FCS college football national championship in Frisco, Abbott reported that the state had no COVID-related deaths the previous 24 hours, and that the seven-day positivity rate was the lowest it's been since records have been taken—which was March 2020.

In other news, Newsweek appears to sense a market opportunity in Fox's recent decision to stop catering to its viewers.

The memory hole

Capital ResearchMany political observers are still buzzing about Time magazine’s bizarre behind-the-scenes report, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.” Author Molly Ball’s bizarre, behind-the-scenes report, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” showcases myriad ways the 2020 election was “fortified,” yet supposedly not “rigged,” by the leftist activists she admits formed a “conspiracy” and a “cabal” aimed at shaping the election.
See CRC’s annotated list of the groups and person’s mentioned in Time’s “Shadow Campaign” article.

Buried among the self-aggrandizing rhetoric and tales of meetings with tech titans to demand they censor conservatives, Ball quotes an extraordinary claim by Tom Lopach, CEO of the Voter Participation Center: “All the work we have done for 17 years was built for this moment of bringing democracy to people’s doorsteps.”

Who knew America has lacked “democracy” for decades? That dubious premise underlies Ball’s breathless narrative.

It really is amazing how the original article has just disappeared.

They stole the election, they admitted it, they bragged about it, and almost no one even bothers to question them about it at a confirmation hearing.

DePerno: Antrim County election system logged in remotely...

Details. DePerno on Twitter.

DePerno keeps finding evidence of questionable activity. In this case, evidence of remote logins with escalated privileges after the election. Escalated could mean hacked, or just users who were authorized to be admins. But the existence of remotely accessible capabilities seems to disprove the claim that no internet access was possible from those machines. The user accounts were not specific usernames, so the users cannot be tracked to specific people easily. Exactly what happened during those logins is unknown (at least to the public).

DePerno argues that even having this capability decertifies the election conducted with these machines. No idea if he's right there.

Government manipulating forest fire statistics for "hockey stick"

WattsUpWithThatIt’s been an open secret, ever since Dr. Michael Mann used “Mike’s Nature Trick” to “hide the decline” by covering up some inconvenient tree ring data in the hockey stick climate graph, that climate alarmists will go to almost any length to only show the public the “crisis side” of climate data.

The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) has been the keeper of U.S. wildfire data for decades, tracking both the number of wildfires and acreage burned all the way back to 1926. However, after making that entire dataset public for decades, now, in a blatant act of cherry picking, NIFC “disappeared” a portion of it, and only show data from 1983. You can see it here.

Fortunately, the Internet never forgets, and the entire dataset is preserved on the Internet Wayback machine and other places, despite NIFC’s ham-handed attempt to disappear the data.

Why would they do this you ask? The answer is simple; data prior to 1983 shows that U.S. wildfires were far worse both in frequency and total acreage burned. By disappearing all data prior to 1983, which just happens to be the lowest point in the dataset, now all of the sudden we get a positive slope of worsening wildfire aligning with increased global temperature, which is perfect for claiming “climate change is making wildfire worse”. See figure 1 below for a before and after comparison of what the data looks like when you plot it.

The problem with trusting government agencies to collect statistics is that government agencies are by necessity partisan. As soon as some politician sees a political advantage in manipulating the data, you can no longer trust it. And in normal circumstances you might seen control of an agency passing from party to party -- thus giving them both some incentive to be accurate, for fear of suffering under the other party -- our current circumstances are far from normal. The Democrats are effectively in permanent control of the federal administrative state. Those agencies feel free to act with political bias, in everything from law enforcement, to intelligence, to even basic science.

Why the left is pushing transgenderism

PJMediaFrom day one, President Joe Biden has twisted the law and has turned aspects of society upside down to push transgender activism through executive orders, even attempting to resurrect a mandate that would force Catholic hospitals and doctors to perform transgender surgery against their consciences. Yet transgender people only account for 0.4 percent of the population. It does not make sense to railroad women’s rights, religious freedom, and free speech to kowtow to such a small population.

So the Biden administration stumbled on an innovative way to push this radical agenda: prioritizing immigrants who identify as transgender, giving them special humanitarian exemptions at the border.

In all honesty... the illegal alien agenda of the Democrats makes sense. It's wrong and a bad idea, but their obvious goal is to import voters they believe will favor them and swamp the normal Americans who favor Republicans.

The gay and lesbian agenda also makes sense. You're talking about a small but measurable fraction of the population that is highly, highly self-enforcing in terms of political conformity. Two or three percent can swing close elections.

Despite the attention being given to transgender issues, it's a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of the population with a genuine medical condition, and an only slightly larger fraction of the population with similar mental health conditions. However, it's another small fraction that marches in lockstep with the Democrat party precisely when their hold on the "classic" gay and lesbian voters is weakening. (Why is it weakening? The Supreme Court declared gay marriage the law of the land, which takes away the issue, however wrong that court decision actually is).

So it makes a little bit of sense that the Biden admin is trying to import more transgender people in order to expand the size of a group they feel will be strongly committed to their party. They are abandoning current voters (so-called "TERF" feminists, for example) in favor of what they perceive to be future voters.

And that explains why the trans-agenda is being pushed so hard and so strongly at children. It's not about today's voters, who broadly oppose it but don't want to be accused of being mean by saying so. It's about future voters: specifically, every child they successfully entice onto chemical puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender-mutilation surgery.

Every one of those poor, confused people is being pushed towards permanent biological interventions that will forever divorce them from normally-sexed human beings for the rest of their lives.

The transgender craze is about creating future voters who are, in essence, biologically determined to vote Democrat.
