BREAKING: Fifth Circuit reverses judge; Engelbrecht and Phillips released

Last Monday, True The Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and cyber investigator Gregg Phillips were taken into custody on a contempt of court charge for refusing to divulge their source of information that election software company Konnech was allegedly storing American election-worker data on servers in China.

Ironically, Engelbrecht and Phillips had to spend last week behind bars while Konnech CEO Eugene Yu, after being indicted on the basis of the information the two provided to the court, has been out on a $500,000 bond and will remain at home, under house arrest, until his next hearing, set for November 17. Does anyone see something wrong with this picture?

In breaking news, Engelbrecht and Phillips were released from jail Sunday. Catherine released a statement:

“Those who thought that imprisoning Gregg and I would weaken our resolve have gravely miscalculated. It is stronger than ever.

“The right to free and fair elections without interference is more important than our own discomforts and even this detention, now reversed by a higher court.

“We are profoundly grateful for that. We will continue to protect and defend those who do the vital work of election integrity, and we will make sure that their findings become a matter of public record.”

According to a comment on FREE REPUBLIC, President Trump had called for their release during a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday. But it was the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in Southern Texas (True The Vote is Houston-based) that reversed Judge Kenneth Hoyt and let them out after six days.

True The Vote had appealed Judge Hoyt’s decision last Wednesday. Konnech vehemently opposed their release in a 25-page brief filed Saturday evening. The tactic seemed pretty rotten, especially when they said outlandish things like, “...Petitioners brazenly seek to strip the District Court of its contempt power.”

No, Petitioners didn’t. Petitioners were saying that it had been applied inappropriately in this case, and a higher court has since agreed. According to some reports, this might be the first time in U.S. history that Americans have been jailed in a federal civil defamation suit.

If you’d like to do a deep dive into the technical minutiae of the appeal, here are details of their attorney’s argument that their hesitancy to blow the covers of their sources was not contemptuous of the court...

During their imprisonment last week, True The Vote released a statement that appears on their website. Here’s what they said:

Catherine also released an update from jail last week. She apparently had to spend some time in solitary confinement, in an 8 x 10’ unlighted cinderblock cell. Catherine asked for prayers as she awaited the result of her appeal. She also noted that a patriot friend had set up a website to sell merchandise, the proceeds of which would will go towards their legal defense.

In related news, Republicans in Congress have released a new report called “FBI Whistleblowers: What Their Disclosures Indicate About the Politicization of the FBI and Justice Department.” REDSTATE’s quick summary of the 1,000-plus pages might help explain why so-called “election deniers” Catherine and Gregg were imprisoned while Eugene Yu walked free. Our ‘justice’ system is playing hardball with anyone who dares to challenge elections, treating them as criminals. They refuse to acknowledge that True The Vote is trying to save Americans’ faith in our system, not pose a threat to it.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee, in an appearance with Maria Bartiromo on FOX NEWS’ SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, spoke about plans the GOP has –- if (when!) they take Congress –- to get politics out of the FBI. Whistleblowers have been bringing to their attention a long list of issues. “The very first thing we need to do,” he said, “is hold a series of hearings and actually demand answers. We’ve got questions that have remained unanswered for years, from the abuse of Section 702, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, to unanswered questions on the raid on Mar-A-Lago, to...why the attorney general of the United States saw fit to issue a letter, a memorandum, essentially accusing moms and dads concerned about what their kids are being taught in public schools of being domestic terrorists of some sort.”

I know what you’re thinking. UGH, MORE HEARINGS. But they’re a necessary step for getting questions answered on the record, after which they move to the next phase, which Sen. Lee said “perhaps ought to involve some sort of restructuring.” (Perhaps??) Most of the agents are not politically motivated, he said, but “at headquarters, we’ve got problems...” I wish, though, that he'd had a more definitive answer about the quality of leadership the next Senate could count on from Sen. Mitch McConnell. Perhaps that was just because they ran out of time...

Quote of the Day!

From President Biden: “No really. This ain’t your father’s Republican Party. This is a different breed of cat. I mean it. Look, they’re all about the wealthier getting wealthy. And the wealthier stay wealthy. The middle class gets stiffed. The poor get poorer under their policy.”

Change just one word - “Republican” to “Democrat” - and we finally have a Biden quote that’s 100% accurate!


NBC throws a lifeline to sinking Democrats

Early voting is done, and tomorrow is your last chance to make your voice heard about the direction this nation has been going under the Democrats since January of 2021. They keep saying if people vote the wrong way, it could spell the end of America. I agree, but I define “the wrong way” as “reelecting them,” and I’m hardly alone.

Still, NBC threw a lifeline to the Democrats over the weekend, bringing out their final poll that claims voter enthusiasm has shifted and Democrats once again lead the generic ballot survey by one point.

As Bonchie at points out, that’s just one poll, and NBC doesn’t have a very good record. And national generic Congressional polls are pretty worthless. Still, desperate Democrats leaped on this junk food like a starving man on the last Twinkie, and are proclaiming that the tide has turned and they will keep the House and Senate. And I’m okay with them thinking that.

First, it will make the wailing and rending of garments of the media talking heads on Election Night even more satisfying. And second, I’ve urged Republicans throughout this campaign season to ignore the polls and vote as if the GOP were down 10 points and America’s future depended on massive Republican turnout (the latter is true.)

This is a crawl-over-broken-glass-in-shorts-if-need-be election. If you have not yet voted, do it tomorrow. Take your Republican family members, friends and neighbors with you if they need a ride. Go early and allow plenty of time so there will be no complaints of “The line was too long, I had to leave without voting.”

This especially goes for the millions of Christians who traditionally don’t vote. There is a war on you, your morals and your religious freedom, and this is how you peacefully fight back. Of course, I know the objections: the candidate isn’t perfect or doesn’t fully abide by Biblical teachings. I addressed that in my TBN monologue this weekend, and you can see that here.

Bottom line: we aren’t choosing a Savior. We have a Savior already, and not being Democrats, we don’t mistake politicians for Messiahs. We have an urgent job that needs to be done, and two choices of people we can hire to do it. Only one of those applicants might be able to fix it while the other actively promises to make the problems worse. If you were hiring a plumber and had a choice like that, which would you make?

If you don’t want things to get even worse, turn out tomorrow and vote as if your country – and your plumbing – depended on it.

Democrats spent $19 million to boost MAGA candidates

According to the Washington Post, the Democrats spent a staggering $19 million of their campaign funds on advertising boosting allegedly “far-right, Trump-endorsed MAGA extremist, election deniers” in GOP primaries. They thought if those candidates beat moderate establishment candidates for the nominations, it would be easier to demonize and beat them in the general elections. Now, most of those candidates look poised to win their races, and some, like J.D. Vance and Kari Lake, have emerged as political superstars who will likely have major influence in the future. I’ll continue with this story after the link and after we both stop laughing.

This tells us three things:

1. The Dems wasted a lot of George Soros’ money, which is always a good thing. If they hadn’t piddled it away on this, it might’ve gone to something evil that was more successful.

2. They live in such a bubble of arrogance that they severely underestimated their opponents, overestimated the appeal of their own candidates, and didn’t understand the voters at all.

3. All this “MAGA Republicans will destroy our democracy” hysteria is just a lot of cynical political goulash. If they really cared about “our democracy” (I know, we’re not a democracy, just go with it), and seriously believed all the garbage they were spewing about these people being an existential threat to America, they never would have tried so hard to help them win their nominations. Wouldn’t it be better to risk losing to a “safe” moderate Republican than to help move a “MAGA extremist” one step closer to power and ushering in Armageddon?

The fact that they were meddling in the other party’s primaries to help certain candidates win while telling voters that those very same people would destroy America if they got into power tells us they don’t really believe their own fear mongering at all. They were just two-faced liars playing a cynical, unethical political game to try to make it easier for them to stay in power. They thought they were super-geniuses, and boy, were they wrong.

That they wasted millions of dollars on a “brilliant scheme” that blew up in their faces is my idea of true “social justice,” and the funniest backfire of its kind since Wile E. Coyote.



Great Story

Former comedian Kathy Griffin has been permanently banned from Twitter for impersonating owner Elon Musk. Griffin changed her name on her account to “Elon Musk” and the photo to Musk’s face (at least it wasn’t a fake, bloody severed head, so she is getting a little classier.) Her account was promptly suspended because impersonating others without clearly stating it’s a parody account is a violation of Twitter rules.

Ironically, the same leftists screaming about this are also pressuring advertisers to boycott Twitter because it will allegedly allow “misinformation” by giving conservatives free speech. Meanwhile, they complain that Griffin’s free speech is being infringed (it’s not: she violated the rules, and identity theft is not free speech) and are defending her for deliberately spreading misinformation.

But the best part was Musk’s response to all this. He tweeted, “Actually, she was suspended for impersonating a comedian…But if she really wants her account back, she can have it…For $8.”

I suspect her real problem with Elon Musk is that she knows he’s about a million times funnier than she is. Come to think of it, that might have also been her real beef with Trump.

Musk threatens advertisers boycotting Twitter

Activist groups like the NAACP and the ADL are pressuring advertisers to boycott Twitter for allowing conservatives to have free speech (and too many of them are complying, causing a big drop in revenue to Twitter.) Elon Musk warned that if it doesn’t stop, he will do a “thermonuclear name-and-shame” so that conservatives will know which companies are hostile to their rights and launch counter-boycotts.

By the way, he also noted that he had to lay off half the employees because Twitter was losing $4 million a day (maybe it was the free wine-on-tap in the office?), and those staffers who are crying about how mean and unfair he is are getting three months’ severance pay, or 50% more than contractually required.

Of course, some companies have already made it well known that they prioritize leftist virtue-signaling over shareholder profits, and learned the “get woke, go broke” rule the hard way. I could name some of the anti-free speech companies that halted their Twitter ads now, but I don’t like calling for boycotts that mostly hurt innocent employees. So I’ll give them a day or two to rethink their bad business decisions and get used to the idea of all Americans having the right to make their voices heard. With any luck, tomorrow’s election results might slap some reality into them.

    I love your email. I don’t read all of them, but I read many of them. U have to admit I’m a fan. My admiration grew after meeting you in Columbus, Ms. we live in Starkville.
    I’m concerned about a message I’ve been receiving warning me that yours might be spam. I wonder who is doing this. I really don’t like it!
    Congratulations to the former governor of Arkansas and the future one!

    Main Street Media is looking at Social Media and have come to realization those same companies that covered for JOE and Hunter are now looking at massive layoffs and Mark Zuckerberg and others know that ELON is going to destroy with their own game .

    Shame on you, Gov. Mike Huckabee! You have told us in your newsletter and on your TV show NOT to vote early, but to wait and see the results of the campaigns. And now you and your wife show your stickers that you ALREADY VOTED! Booo!

    When people vote for a Fetterman or a Kelly or a wornack a democrat in general all they are getting is a nit witted Senator that any anyone that can push a button that has 3 letters on it YES is all the IQ required to be a democrat. Looking at the President today someone puts a message on a teleprompter in crayon and biden struggles to read it it is because a member of the deep state an unaelected officials writes the narrative and biden stumbles to read it. I can only hope the people in these states me included can hack the the programs that no one knows what is coming next or by who the Deep State can not be identified for what reason no tells. stupid biden is only doing what he is told or the Deep State will expose him in two seconds for compromised fool that he is.

    I do believe you might be a bit too sure of .Tuesday’s outcome. Are you allowing for machine “error”, dead people rising to vote, vote buying, etc? You know the Dems would cell their mother into slavery to win. Remember, Hilary and the polls that had her winning for sure. I fervently hope you are right because if we can’t turn both houses now, we never will. One problem is that a lot of discourage people don’t think there is much difference in politicians..

    Well, good for Elon. I thought Kathy had already used the severed head thing once before. Where is the originality? I hope Elon does expose these companies by name. We got nothing but misinformation from the Dems. Don’t these company’s have any conscience at all. Why would they think they gain from such behavior.? I know when the CEO of .Chic Filet got pilloried about his religious belief concerning gays, in our area people thronged to the restaurant. Even if most conservative folks don’t necessarily agree with someone they do support their right to speak freely. On Twitter, if you think someone is wrong all you have to do is say that and explain why. If people can read one opinion they can read others. Our founding fathers knew that free speech, religion, fair representation and the ability to defend oneself and equal Justice where truly important for a free people. G

    AND YES, WE ARE A REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy. If I hear how we will lose our democracy one more time, I am going to scream loud enough for you to hear me.
    But the most lefties are too ignorant to know the difference.

    I so agree with you about the Dems pumping money into Republican candidates. It is devoid of any ethics and degrades the democratic process.
    I miss the pre-Trump Republican party and hope it returns in my lifetime.

    WHEN the republicans take back congress, they should form a "November 19 2009 Committee" to examine the Seante's abuse of its power to amend House bills.
    On November 19, 2009, SA 2786 was introduced by the late Harry Reid, et al, to “Strike all after the enacting clause and insert the following:” in HR 3590, at which point the “Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009” became the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
    Further study of the legislative history of this Act indicates that there were NO amendments subsequently made by the House.
    The President Pro Tempore and the President of the Senate (V.P. J. R. Biden) SHOULD have seen that this created as Senate-written tax bill in violation of Article I, Section 7, first paragraph of the Constitution., and blocked it from consideration. The Speaker of the House (Pelosi) SHOULD have seen this as an usurpation of the House's prerogatives, and not allowed it to come to the floor (she COULD have had it re-introduced as a new House bill, but did not, in her haste and glee to finally get Socialized Medice enacted). THe self-proclaimed Constitutional Scholar, B. H. Obama, as President, SHOULD have seen the problem her and vetoed it (and possibly given instructions to go back and follow the rules to do it right.
    At the very least, the four main perpetrators of this blatant violation of their Oaths of office shows them to be either so incompetent as to not be diligent in observing their duty to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution," or so politically motivated as to totally ignore the few restrictions put on the Congress by the Constitution. Either way, they have demonstrated that they are unfit to hold ANY federal office, and should be (1) removed from any office they now hold, (2) stripped of any and all benefits that may have accrued to them from service in federal office, and (3) forever barred from holding and elected or appointed federal employment or office.

    At this point I do not see a reason to vote for a Dem/communist tomorrow and I won't nothing will change as the demonic Deep State has all of them under its spell most of them will ruin a Christian based society and this Nation was designed by Christian value. The Demons are running our streets our politics and tearing our communities apart bit by bit. Lucifer is at the controls for now our hope is to chase it out and back into its dungeon.
