3. 2,000 MULES --- gaining interest, fending off critics

Congratulations to Dinesh D’Souza and the group True the Vote, for grossing over $1 million in their movie’s first 12 hours on Rumble!

On the Internet Movie Data Base (IMDB) rating system, 2,000 MULES got a very respectable 7.4 audience rating on their 10-point scale.

This much interest is amazing, especially considering the current widespread media blackout. Even the FOX News evening opinion shows went another day without mentioning the documentary. At this rate, we might have to wait for Dan Bongino’s weekend show to hear anything about it. He remains undeterred.

Earlier, we offered up a spectacular refutation by Politique Republic of the laughable Associated Press “fact”-check of D’Souza’s new documentary film. In case you missed that piece, here it is on Substack.

This is a stunning take-down of AP’s hit-piece, which was a pathetic attempt to discredit the documentary. But leftist “fact”-checkers are like brain-dead zombies in horror movies --- they just keep coming no matter what weapons you fire at them. (This is why we can’t have the government taking that kind of power, as with the “Disinformation Governmental Bureau, which absolutely must go NOW.) Leftists never stop, never say they’re sorry and never admit they were wrong. So we’re going to have to hit them with a second round today, in the form of this additional critique of the AP.

Wendi Strauch Mahoney interviewed True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht about what the AP had called TTV’s “flawed analysis of cell phone location data and ballot drop box surveillance footage.” They had tried to say that geospatial tracking data with cell phones was too imprecise to support the conclusions made by this study. But Engelbrecht pointed to a Supreme Court case, Carpenter v. United States from 2016, that concluded differently. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that tracking the location of a cell phone “achieves near perfect surveillance as if it had attached an ankle monitor to the phone’s user.”

Roberts also acknowledged the technology’s ability to “reconstruct a person’s back in time to retrace a person’s whereabouts.” Since location information is continually logged for everyone with a cell phone (an unsettling thought, but I digress), trackers “need not even know in advance whether they want to follow a particular individual, and when.” In other words, the tracking can be done after the fact.

Justice Roberts blasts to smithereens the main premise of the AP’s “fact”-check.

In the movie, Engelbrecht and cyber expert Gregg Phillips go through the methodology of their study, showing how they limited their search to the most specific traffic patterns they found, to make sure they didn’t accidentally include “false positives,” people who had innocently been dropping off ballots. To be included, a person had to have not only visited a dropbox but also had at least five visits to one or more of the “stash houses” used by the nonprofits involved in the scheme. Heck, even three visits to one of those offices, in between visits to dropboxes, would have been a very unusual traffic pattern.

The tracking is so precise, it’s not enough for a person to drive to a drop box. He does have to get out of his car and walk up to it. As Phillips says in the film, “The fact of the matter is, these techniques are used every single day by law enforcement, intelligence community [and] Department of Defense.”

I would add that this technology was used by the government to track the movements on January 6, 2021, of hundreds of individual Capitol Hill protesters.

True the Vote was extremely conservative in deciding whom to include. In Engelbrecht’s words: “Larry Campbell, dropping off six ballots for his big family, wouldn’t be in our study. Going once to a dropbox wasn’t in our study. Our mules averaged 38 dropbox visits and 8 NGO [non-governmental organization] visits.” They didn’t even include people who traveled between NGOs and regular U.S. Postal Service boxes. “That’s how we know this was this tip of the iceberg,” Engelbrecht told the interviewer.

And so, how did True the Vote know these people were cheating on behalf of Democrats? Maybe the cheaters were those “ultra-MAGA domestic terrorists" we’ve been hearing so much about. Well, considering many of these mules have been identified as participants in the violent Antifa riots in Atlanta earlier in the year, that seems extremely unlikely. When they looked at their 242 mules in Atlanta, “dozens and dozens and dozens of our mules showed up on the ACLED databases.” (ACLED is the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project.)

Engelbrecht had perfectly reasonable answers to the AP’s other criticisms as well. Her organization didn’t set out to litigate or change the election outcome, she said. They wanted to make a stringently controlled scientific inquiry into the question of drop-box security. And they ended up with evidence of “election fraud on an astonishing scale” in Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona. If True the Vote uses the “lower bar” of five drop-box visits and three ballots per drop to determine how many votes were fake, Trump would have won all these states, with the final electoral count 305 to 233.

Paula Bolyard at PJ MEDIA has a piece that addresses the challenge of proving the fraud. “It’s the perfect crime,” says Sebastian Gorka in the film, “...the evidence has no connection to the person who’s meant to be voting. That’s the problem. As soon as it gets taken out of the [security] envelope, the identity disappears.”

But D’Souza has the answer: True the Vote has the cell phone identification of every one of these mules. So law enforcement needs to step up and interview them. Who paid them? Where’d they get the money? That seems like a lot of effort, but look at the manpower they put into tracking down and investigating people from the January 6 rally who didn’t even go inside the Capitol building. If we had someone running the Department of “Justice” who wasn’t a political hack, the FBI might be tracking down those vote traffickers. If they don’t pursue this –- if they just let it go –- we won’t be a real democracy. We’ll just be going through the motions, pretending to be one.

4. Judge in Sussmann case appears to protect Hillary

In our May 9 report on the judge’s latest rulings in the Michael Sussmann trial, we mentioned the following:

“On the downside, this judge doesn’t want to bring in evidence of the ‘joint venture’ among Sussmann, Joffe and the Clinton campaign to smear Trump with the Alfa Bank story, because Sussmann hasn’t been charged with conspiracy. The judge said he doesn’t want to ‘confuse the jury’ and ‘distract from the issues at hand.’”

At the time, we didn’t buy his excuse—I mean, reason. And sure enough, it’s this ruling that has Margot Cleveland concerned about how politics might be playing a part with this judge, Obama appointee U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper. This judge, she said, “let politics trump the law.” Though she finds his “baseline” to be apolitical, mostly even-handed, sometimes he veers from that. We, too, notice that this happens when the facts at issue tend to get too ‘warm’ –- that is, too close to Hillary and her campaign.

Durham had argued that various emails, even if they were hearsay, were still admissible under the “co-conspirator statement” exception to the hearsay rule. But to rule in Durham’s favor, the judge would essentially be acknowledging that Hillary For America was a co-conspirator.

As Cleveland explains this, a “conspiracy” isn’t necessarily criminal, and that this is why Durham is giving it the more benign term “joint venture. But to make an exception to the hearsay rule, the judge would have to find that “a preponderance of the evidence” supported a conspiracy or joint venture.

Judge Cooper balked at this. He said that for a variety of reasons, his court was exercising “its discretion not to engage of the kind of extensive evidentiary analysis that would be required to find that such a joint venture existed, and who may have joined it.”

Cleveland explains why, given the witnesses from Georgia Tech who are slated to testify at the trial, there would be no need for an “extensive evidentiary analysis.” Durham’s office had even suggested in their brief that the judge could “preliminarily admit hearsay statements of co-conspirators, subject to connection through proof of conspiracy.” In other words, just wait and issue the ruling during the trial. She thinks the evidence of the joint venture is overwhelming, “easily satisfying the preponderance of evidence test.

She says Judge Cooper’s unwillingness to do this suggests politics at work. He’s not touching the issue of whether the Clinton campaign had conspired to peddle the Alfa Bank hoax. He’s even questioning the whole “joint venture” theory, saying the “contours” of it and its participants are “not entirely obvious.” Cleveland senses that this case “is political to its core,” just like the entire Russia Hoax.

I forgot my magic mind-reading cap today, but it sure looks as though this judge is protecting the Democrats, and, specifically, Hillary Clinton, the queen mother of scandal.

The Washington Times got the same impression.

A while back, we reported on the stunning conflicts of interest this judge has, including the fact that his wife, Amy Jeffress, has represented one of the people most closely involved with the Russia Hoax, Lisa Page. We thought then, how does this judge get this case? How can this judge NOT be political?

5. NY Post: Hunter's benefactor has even SPIED for him

Hollywood attorney-to-the-stars Kevin Morris, a pal to Hunter Biden, is the individual who paid Hunter’s approximately $2 million IRS bill and who funds his extravagant lifestyle in Malibu, including his $20,000-a-month rental. This “sugar brother” reportedly has been developing a legal and media strategy for Hunter and also helped structure the plan for selling his “artwork” to anonymous (“anonymous”?) buyers.

But he’s done much more. When production was going on –- in Siberia –- for a biopic about Hunter’s life, Morris traveled there on a private jet with two associates and got onto the set under false pretenses, apparently to spy on them. According to the New York Post, he told the producer that he himself was working on a documentary that detailed Hunter’s corrupt business practices.

The real production was called MY SON HUNTER, an indie film produced by Phelim McAleer. Morris and his fake “production team” were given full access to the set and interviewed cast and crew over several days, even sharing meals. But…

“They seemed to never switch the camera off,” Mcleer told the Post. “Now I know why. This was an information-gathering exercise by a lawyer and his associates for their client. (Recall that Hunter has a different attorney, Chris Clark, handling the investigation into his finances.)

McAleer is described in the Post as a conservative, so it’s likely Hunter and his generous benefactor are concerned that the film might put the President’s son in a harsh light. Never mind that he's already put himself in one.

You have to give Morris one thing: for whatever reason he has to help Hunter, he’s dedicated. It’s not just that he gave Hunter $2 million and continues to pay his lavish expenses. Would your lawyer leave the beautiful Malibu beach and fly to SIBERIA for you? A place where "hanging ten" refers to the risk of toe frostbite? To go undercover and spy on your behalf? I’ve heard of attorneys lying for their clients, but, until now, not lying AND SPYING.

6. "Jane's Revenge"

A far-left pro-abortion group calling itself “Jane’s Revenge” has taken “credit” for the firebombing of a pro-life counseling center in Wisconsin.

The group issued a hyperbolic manifesto, calling the bombing “only a warning,” and vowing to commit more violence if “all anti-choice establishments, fake clinics and violent anti-choice groups” were not disbanded within 30 days. They wrote, “As you continue to bomb clinics and assassinate doctors with impunity, so too shall we adopt increasingly extreme tactics to maintain freedom over our own bodies. We are forced to adopt the minimum military requirement for a political struggle.”

For the record: I have always condemned violence and threats against abortion providers. I don’t believe that’s morally right, and it’s certainly not the way to win hearts and minds to the pro-life side. As for the notion that such acts are committed with impunity: of course, police investigate and prosecute the perpetrators. For example, the person who killed abortion doctor George Tiller in 2009 was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

Police in Madison are still investigating, and they’re reportedly working with federal authorities to identify the source of this message and determine if it’s legitimate. If so, those behind it might find that the government does have the power to restrict their freedom over their own bodies, which may be confined to prison cells for quite a stretch.

Related: While the White House flips between encouraging and condemning threatening protests at SCOTUS Justices’ home to try to intimidate them into voting certain ways, most Americans know unacceptable behavior when they see it.

A Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey asked Americans if they believe that “publishing the home addresses of the five U.S. Supreme Court Justices and calling for protests at their private homes is an acceptable way to protest” the upcoming ruling on Roe v. Wade. A lopsided 75.8% said no. Only 15.9% percent approved, and 8.3% weren’t sure. The disapproval of mob thuggery was fairly bipartisan, with the opposition of 86.5% of Republicans, 75.1% of independents and even 66.6% of Democrats.

Only one in five Democrats think that’s acceptable. I get the feeling the mobs we’re seeing on TV actually comprise the entirety of those one-out-of-five Democrats.

Also, the 20% of Democrats who don’t know that mob justice that violates federal law is wrong apparently includes the leaders of Biden’s “Justice” Department, who so far are doing nothing to stop the threats and harassment of Supreme Court Justices. Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin has requested local police to provide security, and he and the Governor of Maryland sent a letter to Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland, calling on him to do his job and enforce the law.

Good luck! Now they know how the Governors of Texas and Arizona feel.

7. The Party of Science

A pro-abortion activist in a “Handmaid’s Tale” costume who was protesting outside Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s house claimed that Barrett doesn’t understand what it’s like “to carry a pregnancy to term.” Barrett has given birth to five children. Was "The Handmaid's Tale" a picture book?

8. Another leak

There’s yet another alleged leak of confidential discussions from inside the Supreme Court. If true, it’s good news for the pro-life side, but any leaks are bad for the SCOTUS. This needs to stop. I’m willing to wait to find out what the ruling is, if the price for a sneak peek is the destruction of the integrity of the court system.

    What are Democrats Good for? Has Americans figured out what Life is with a Democratic policies run Government? Can Americans truthfully say life is better with a biden run government. One must understand just a few Democrats have a different view of how the Dem. party governs American society. The Truth is the biden administration template is in all of its decisions are start a fire let the fire destroy the property and then call the Fire Department. Americans are said to be intellectually smart my question is intellectually smarter than what remember the American education system the colleges and the Universities what have they done??????????/

    I am glad that you mentioned this fact in your newsletter. I am very disappointed in Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and even Tucker Carlson for not even mentioning 2,000 Mules. Their silence about the film is a little confusing. I know D'Souza has been on Hannity and Ingraham's show in the past. There must be a reason that these important host's haven't even mentioned the movie. Surely they are not afraid of "fallout" from those that dispute any election abnormalities in the 2020 election.

    "If they don’t pursue this –- if they just let it go –- we won’t be a real democracy. We’ll just be going through the motions, pretending to be one."

    They won't.

    Now what, Governor? Do we all just sit tamely and accept our enslavement, praying for a heaven-sent "Moses" to one day come along and set us free from our pharaonic rulers?

    Perhaps the answer to voting fraud (and a radical, fascist, unelected government bureaucracy that will do nothing in the face of it) is to...wait for it...go out and VOTE!!! Yes. Vote for another troupe of spineless, useless lickspittle lackey GOP minions who pledge and promise, and then comfortably sink into the DC swamp and fritter away billions of dollars of American taxpayers money to Ukraine, or a host of other radical globalist interests, while American babies go without formula, American borders remain nonexistent, the American economy is reduced to third-world status, and American citizens are marched towards our own CCP-style Great Leap Forward by the unquestionable "expert Elites" who deign to rule our lives. And if you think any of this is by "accident" and not design then you are a brainless idiot.

    Shut up, put your mask back on whenever "daddy government" tells you to - because you are a non-person. Empty your wallet for Zelensky, the UN, the EU, the WHO and a thousand special interest groups that are festering like maggots on the bloated corpse that once was America. Obey like a good little puppet, and learn how to accept your proper place in the New World Order - kneeling, silenced, and in complete and abject surrender to the Ministry of Truth that's backed by the well armed, unelected, and unchallengeable might of the corrupt FBI, DOJ and the rest, with all the privation and austerity measures embraced by the Green New Communist Party. Go "vote" Governor. Pretend the "law" still applies.

    Good luck, I think, getting anyone my age or younger to "joint the military" in defense of this miserable, rotten, corrupt, lying, self-serving, plutocracy of a nation. Not if Russia and China both were sailing up the river would I lift a finger to defend it. The Russians and the Chinese might want to kill me...but I find death by Kalashnikov is hands-down better than enslavement to this regime.

    Florida lawmaker, Rep. Kat Cammack posted videos showing Biden sending pallets of baby formula to the border at Ursula processing facility in McAllen, Texas. Commack said that a border agent sent her photographs of the deliveries and she posted one online. They're receiving pallets and more pallets of baby formula at the border, showing both Advantage and GoGo Squeeze. Illegal immigrants are getting baby formula while there is a nationwide shortage that has sent America's mothers desperately rushing from store to store looking for food for their babies. What kind of monster does this and puts mothers through this torture.

    Nothing new when it comes to protecting the Clintons. I winder what makes her so lovable??

    So I guess our mother of five plus two was in some other dimension when pregnant. Don’t suppose out misinformation people will investigate the remarks about her never having been pregnant. I think if Planned Parenthood it all have taken an early abortion only and let me tell you about birth control approach the issue may not have been brought up. Most people cannot stomach murdering viable babies. I think the Justices would be within their rights to fire every employee of SCOTUS down to the cleaning crew and guards if the no one fesses up. We cannot have this kind of leak. Are the going to have to meet in a lead line room and do their own writing up of decisions or minutes of meetings?

    The only way we will have valid voting is to have polling places on a given day. Early voting of no more than a week, and tightly controlled mail on voting for those who CANNOT get to the polls. Plus, voter ID is needed. Voting is not a right by birth. It is a privilege.

    Regarding the "LEAK" at the Supreme Court.

    Did we not just appoint one of the most radically faaaar Left Supreme Court Justices ever? Did not this leak coincide with her taking a position and authority, responsibility and power? Is not this Supreme Court "Justice" so radical that she cannot even identify or acknowledge that sex is a biological constant evident before birth? Hasn't she failed to even recognize or acknowledge the individual's sacred God given rights spelled out in our Constitution which she has supposedly sworn to uphold and defend as have all of her hack cronies in the Senate and Congress? May I humbly suggest that you start looking for your "LEAK" inside of her office and sphere of influence within the Supreme Court? Would it be such a stretch of the imagination to see the forced retirement of her predecessor and her installment within the Court as a "PLANT" by the established far Left to compromise the Supreme Court on their own behalf through these unprecedented "LEAKS"? What's next from the slithering Left?
