TRUMP LAWSUIT IMPLICATES CENTER FOR TECH AND CIVIC LIFE

President Trump himself has filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission, in his personal capacity as a candidate for re-election as President of the United States. The suit alleges “unlawful and unconstitutional acts.” Details are at the link, along with general information and updates on Trump’s legal fight and a place to donate to his Election Defense Fund.

Interestingly, the list of alleged unlawful acts includes activities involving a group we’ve reported on recently, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), which came in from out of state to implement a new form of balloting in Wisconsin: unmanned, absentee ballot dropboxes “without adequate or uniform chain of custody standards and security protocols contrary to the Wisconsin Election code.”

According to this lawsuit, the CTCL funded (yes, FUNDED) a plan by the mayors of Wisconsin’s five largest cities --- Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha, Green Bay and Racine --- to use these dropboxes. The mayors are also included in the suit. The dropbox plan was adopted by the Wisconsin Elections Commission for use throughout the state.

Remember the CTCL? We reported that they used to operate on a yearly budget of about $1 million but then got a whopping infusion of $350 million from Mark Zuckerberg. That should buy a whole lot of dropboxes. This release from the Amistad Project is really a must-read if you want to know what’s going on with all that money.

Donors to the CTCL include Facebook, Google, and progressive organizations such as Rock The Vote, Democracy Fund, and the Voter Information Project, which after a few clicks tells us it is a member of “the Election Infrastructure Subsector Coordinating Council,” which after a few more clicks we find is part of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). You know, the same public-private agency within the Department of Homeland Security that Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic are members of.

And, hoo boy. The header on the home page of the CTCL will have you rolling on the floor: “We harness the promise of technology to modernize the American voting experience. What you get: High-performing election offices. Increased public confidence and trust. A more resilient and adaptive election system. Better informed voters.” They say their job is to “ensure that our elections are more professional, inclusive and secure.”

What we got in this election –- though the mainstream media won’t report it –- was a freaking mess, an unmitigated disaster. If this is the “modernized” American voting experience, give me old-fashioned in-person voting with paper ballots and poll watchers from both parties standing calmly and politely by, as in the days of the dinosaurs. (Stone tablets would be fine with me as long as signatures are verified. One bonus is that they’re too heavy for mail-in.)

The CTCL website goes on to say they offer courses such as “Cybersecurity for Election Officials.” (Again, I’ll pause while you roll on the floor, laughing helplessly.) And on their page called “20 Ways Election Officials Increased Accessibility During the November Election,” they brag that “in California, Vermont and D.C., every registered voter received a mail-in ballot for the first time.” What could possibly go wrong?

They also work to register “voters serving out felony sentences” as “an issue of social and racial justice.” Thanks to their efforts, Cook County Jail in Illinois, the nation’s second largest prison, served as a polling location this year, marking “the first time in U.S. history that a prison hosted in-person early voting for a general election. It saw a 40 percent voter turnout rate, with over 2,000 incarcerated individuals casting ballots.”

They say they are also “educating Native Americans to reverse historic suppression.” I'm not sure, but I do have to wonder if they were involved in Nevada’s get-out-the-vote effort for Native Americans.

It appears that the CTCL goes into heavily-Democrat cities and pays election officials, but with strings attached. In Philadelphia, they reportedly required the city to open 800 new polling places. Should a non-government entity be coming in and changing how an election is managed?

Now that Election Day has passed, the CTCL is crowing about what a great job everybody did. I am not kidding. “Election officials are still hard at work canvassing ballots,” they say on their website, “conducting post-election audits, and certifying results, but the November 2020 election is largely over and, overall, IT WENT EXCEPTIONALLY WELL [emphasis mine].”

National Public Radio agreed. Don’t miss reading the transcript of this roundtable, as officials are patting each other on the back for how good a job they all did. It’s quite a hoot, funny and sad at the same time. These people are in a world of their own.

Anyway, as for the Wisconsin lawsuit that sent us down this rabbit hole. Jenna Ellis, Trump attorney and senior legal advisor for his campaign, said it “reveals an apparently coordinated effort to push a new form of balloting upon Wisconsin voters that was not protected by uniform chain of custody and security standards and protocols. Regrettably, this is the same sort of conduct we have seen across many battleground states that Democrats knew they had to win to defeat the President where the rules of the election were changed at the last minute and guardrails against fraud were simultaneously lifted.”

This is what Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias was so busy setting up during the months leading to the election.

The dropbox plan is just one of the directives of the Wisconsin Elections Commission cited in the lawsuit. Trump accuses them of ordering election officials to “tamper with witness certifications on absentee ballot envelopes,” making it easier to count unlawful ballots. He also accuses them of issuing orders with the purpose of “undercutting” the state’s photo ID law.

It looks as though Big Tech, through lots of money and “directives” issued by the CTCL to heavily-blue cities, played a major role in creating the chaos we now have. Trump’s legal challenges are bringing this to light –- one more reason why he’s performing a public service by doing this.


NEW PODCAST EPISODE

Ever wonder what ever happened to good old-fashioned gumshoe reporting? Veteran journalist Uma Pemmaraju has the answer on this week’s “People’s Podcast,” speaking with Governor Huckabee all about the news media’s declining standards in our ironically named information era.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ELECTION UPDATE

Wednesday night, President Trump gave an election update that he said “may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.” He talked about the allegations of vote fraud and irregularities and said, "The constitutional process must be allowed to continue. We are going to defend the honesty of the vote by ensuring every legal ballot is counted and that no illegal ballot is counted.” But he insisted, “This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me; it's about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and all future elections." You can watch the entire speech at this link.

Some media outlets refused to carry the speech, social media put their “This claim is disputed” banners on it, and various liberals railed that Trump is assaulting democracy. But what actually assaults democracy is when the legitimate vote of any citizen to have a say in his or her own government is discarded or canceled out by an illegal vote.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that 47% of Americans believe or suspect that the election was stolen for Biden, and that even includes about 30% of Democrats. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that all the media denials and censoring of such suspicions are not making them go away. Did Democrats stop believing that “Russian collusion” stole the 2016 election, even after we told them how ridiculous it was?

If Democrats truly believe that this is nothing but phony conspiracy theories, and that Biden’s apparent win was on the up-and-up and there is “nothing to see here,” then it would be in their best interests to stop fighting all the attempts to audit the ballots and voting machines and be completely transparent.

Show the American people you have nothing to hide so everyone can be satisfied and we can all get back to work with restored faith in our electoral system and no dark clouds hanging over the incoming Administration. I would actually welcome that myself. I even suggested this to Joe Biden two days after the election and got attacked for saying it. Now, I’m seeing the same suggestion pop up all over: Calls for a transparent, bipartisan investigation to reassure the public and dispel the suspicions.

Why not? I see no reason for them to keep yelling at us that there’s nothing up their sleeves when all they have to do is roll them up and show us.

LEFTIST RHETORIC GETS AN UPDATE

Leftists like to flatter themselves that they are the only truly creative people (of course, they also think they’re the only ones who know how to be funny, and I’ve seen precious little evidence of that lately.) Yet, their responses to their political opponents are anything but creative. In fact, they boil down to a handful of kneejerk cliches, repeated over and over like mantras in a religious cult.

What’s their response to any attempts to insure voter integrity? “Racism!” “Voter suppression!” (Keeping dead people from voting does suppress one of their key constituencies.) What if anyone holds an opinion even slightly to the right of theirs? “Nazi!” “Literally Hitler!!” It’s so boring and predictable.

Well, at least in recent years, they’ve managed to freshen up their rote rhetoric with a new cliché: “It’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ come true!!” Claiming that that piece of bad fiction is about to become reality has become part of the standard leftist script. They dress up in “Handmaid’s Tale” costumes, like furries; shower awards on the latest TV adaptation of it; and take it more seriously than the most obsessed Trekkie. And what sets off their "Handmaid's Tale" radar? Any effort whatsoever to protect First Amendment religious freedom rights.

Case in point: the recent Supreme Court ruling that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo couldn’t shut down churches while allowing secular businesses to remain open – the kind of slamdunk ruling that’s so obviously correct that the only shocking thing about it is that it wasn’t unanimous (the liberal Justices and swinging door John Roberts voted in favor of religious discrimination.)

Except this time, the outcry of “It’s like ‘The Handmaid’s Tale!'” didn't just come from random nuts cosplaying in the streets but from a couple of formerly respected law professors from Harvard and Cornell.

For the record: No, preventing the government from enacting policies that openly discriminate against people of faith and shutting down churches, synagogues and mosques while allowing everything from bike shops to liquor stores to stay open doesn’t mean we are living in or heading toward an oppressive religious dystopia. It means we are standing up to prevent an oppressive leftist government dystopia.

Coincidentally, do you know who else used the oppressive power of government to deprive people of their rights and shut down synagogues? Literally, Hitler.

    A sure-fire way to determine if a ballot was completed with an ink pen is to check for an indentation on the back of the paper. If a ballot was machine-printed with votes already marked, there will be no indentation! A simple trick I learned years ago in one of my jobs! It could help prove so much on the validity of ballots!

    I'm hoping desperately that Trump and his team are able to turn the election results into reality, that rampant fraud is proved and even another election held if necessary. It seems so obvious to me, they didn't stuff the election boxes until after the numbers started coming in. They (the Left) held bags and bags of illegal ballots in reserve, then brought them out as needed. Legal voters did their jobs, we went out and voted, even in Utah where I live, where my one vote didn't make that much difference. The voter turnout was huge this year, I understand. We knew fraud was in the works and we wanted to get the president we wanted. We tried and the left was ready for us. I have a prediction: If the worst happens and Biden makes it into the WH, and the inevitable recession starts up, it will all be blamed on Trump. You know that will happen. they claimed Trump's economy for Obama, they will blame any failure on him also. Don't even go there, Progressives. We know whose policies create failure and it isn't Trump's!!!

    I am going to keep writing this until somebody either totally blocks me or does an investigation into what I am saying. I am so tired of hearing so many people "DIED FROM COVID" THEY DID NOT DIE OF COVID, THEY DIED BECAUSE OF SO OFTEN ANOTHER FATAL DISEASE THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY KILLED THE PERSON ANY WAY!...I WANT TO KNOW WHERE IS THE TRUE STATS INFORMATION ON PEOPLE WHO "JUST DIE FROM COVID?" THERE IS ANY DO THE RESEARCH NO ONE HAS DIED FROM JUST COVID!" I am not saying COVID or the flu is not serious BUT FOR GOD'S SAKE GET THE DAMN INFORMATION CORRECT! However, then THEY will lose control of the masses and the fat paychecks that are and will be made, and the SCAM THAT THE ENTIRE IS SUFFERING UNDER WILL BE EXPOSED!

    Pete and Repete. Remember that old joke? Well, to paraphrase The Monkeys, "Here it comes again-n-n-n MMMM." If I remember correctly, there were 18 instances that former president Obama lied to us, the American people, pertaining to The "Affordable" Care Act in stating not to worry, that anyone that wanted to keep their present insurance could.

    Well, in yesterday's paper (locally it's The Aiken Standard but it's part of a larger group now) https://www.postandcourier.com/aikenstandard/ appeared to refute what Biden indicated, that his mandate for wearing masks will only be for 100 days starting the day of his inauguration and no longer. On page 5A, the continuation of the article from page 1A, labeled VIRUS on page 5A, "officials said": "But until a significant number of people are vaccinated, people should still practice social distancing and wear masks, the health experts said. That's also because it's not yet known if the vaccine prevents transmission, meaning it's still possible that someone who gets vaccinated could become infected and be asymptomatic, the officials said." Previously, in the same article, it was indicated that due to the way the vaccinations would be distributed it may not be until 2012 when enough people have been vaccinated, probably meaning worldwide due to travel and open borders.

    So, the perpetuation of prevarication continues, "first" with Obama and now with Biden. With Biden's mantra that he is and will "follow the experts" anyone that believes the 100 days mandate of mask wearing will not "keep on truckin'" is deluded.

    As was the effort of Obama, the desire of the Socialists is to have two classifications of people: those that control and those that are controlled. Evidence of this is the preponderance of politicians that mandate restrictions for the common people yet ignore these same restrictions themselves. Witness Fauci's statement recently that it is time the American people need to forget about their independence, do what they are told, and "shut the Hell up!"

    Recently we are seeing evidence of people resisting these restrictions and it is about time. To quote John Sinclair and the MC5, "It is time to testify. It is time, brothers and sisters. It is time to decide. Are you going to be a part of the problem or a part of the solution?"

    Voting in America today and for decades has been a fraud. History of city and state run governments by Leftist officials shows that lifestyles by people voting enjoy living in filth poverty and violent communities is not choice, but a dictatorship. It is hard for me to see elected mayors year after year elected only to have policies that keep people in slums begging for food shelter and decency, when people live under those conditions they do not fit in society where people demand better, so how does vile people keep getting reelected;? Fraudulent voting practice or a huge % of mental illness runs thru these communities. Major cities that haven't had an upgrade in its communities , education, surrounding the city is criminal the Mayors basically have put its population in cages while they live in luxury that is insane that is a product of the CCP. Yes it has been with us for a long time.

    Thank you for your newsletters!!! I certainly cannot find any truth (other opinion) from any news source! My husband and I used to be Fox "junkies". Now I can't stand to listen to some of the news people that I used to look to for truth. I am still praying daily for truth, justice and righteousness from this election. I know in my heart that this was not a fair election!!! Just the very simple sight of the thousands at President Trump's rallies and nobody at Biden's "showings". There just aren't that many people living in the basement like Biden does!!! Thank you for your news and research you do. Blessings to you. I fear for my children and my grandchildren. But I trust in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, more!!!

    Mike, When was the last Presidential election where the political party gained a significant number of seats in Congress, but their Presidential candidate "lost"? I don't recall this happening in any Presidential election since I began voting in the 60's. Looks like another example of voter fraud needed to achieve what we happened this year. Love your Newsletter!

    My wife received an unsolicited application for a ballot to vote by mail in the upcoming runoff elections in Georgia. The issue is my wife has a Green Card and her driver's license is marked "Limited Term." Since she is a Permanent Resident and not a US citizen she is not eligible to vote.
    The ballot does ask if your are a US citizen. However, if you check "yes" and mail in your application and later mail in a ballot who is going to verify your citizenship? You cannot tell me there is not fraud going on with mail in ballots.

    Sir: I don't know how you can possibly have the time to produce such damaging information - but I am more than glad that you do. The service you are providing to America is of utmost importance and if we're going to have an "America" in the coming years depends on your success - yours and the efforts of many others. I applaud you in the highest way I know for what you are doing and I encourage you to continue. Make yourself proud --- and all while making America proud!!! Sam Sayger

    I have sarcastically said the US is the most corrupt country in the Free World I have changed that view to what seems to be arms and legs of the Radical Left to be a cover for the CCP. The Left is in control of all our Agencies that is being exposed. I feel Trump maybe the one holding what he has built in only 4 years together I still will not bet against him being reelected although I pray a bit more these days he does. With Biden's Villains in control America will become like the city of Atlantis lost or just a shit hole country that Obama created during its tenure.
