(RepublicanWire.org) – U.S. Rep. Jamaal Bowman, a New York Democrat who is a member of the notorious “Squad,” warns that a “civil war” will break out in America if Republicans win control of the United States Senate or the United States House of Representatives during the November elections.

Bowman warned, “of a stark outcome if Republicans take back power in the November midterm elections — one that would ‘embolden’ far-right extremists and white nationalists who he claims ‘have been pushing’ for ‘civil war.”

“Bowman went on to warn that Republicans gaining control of the House and/or Senate would ‘embolden’ dangerous and violent extremists to take further control.

“‘It would also embolden Republicans and the far right, and white nationalists across the country to begin to believe that it is their time to not just take power in the House, but the Senate, the White House and statehouses across the country,’ Bowman said.”

‘We’ve got to understand that this is a group that has been radicalized by the great replacement myth and many other things, and have been pushing for violence and pushing for even civil war, so that is what’s at stake right now in terms of this election,’ he warned.” 

 

(RepublicanWire.org) – That thing that we are assured never happens, happened. Former Democrat US Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers has pled guilty to multiple charges related to a scheme to stuff ballot boxes for Democrat candidates between 2014 and 2018.

Myers has a checkered history, having been expelled from Congress for accepting bribes. Apparently, he didn’t learn his lesson and has been running a ring of corruption for decades.

A former congressman from Philadelphia pleaded guilty Monday to charges related to fraudulently stuffing ballot boxes for Democratic candidates between 2014 and 2018.

Federal prosecutors said former Democratic U.S. Rep. pleaded guilty to violations of election law, conspiracy, bribery and obstruction.

Messages seeking comment were left for his defense lawyers listed on the online docket.

In a sentencing memo dated Friday, federal prosecutors said his “criminal efforts were generally, although not exclusively, directed at securing election victories for local judicial candidates running for Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas or Municipal Court who had employed Myers as a ‘political consultant.”

According to the report, Myers bribed a judge of elections in Philidelphia to add votes to the candidates of his choice, again, all Democrats. Those bribes totaled hundreds of thousands of dollars, so this was no small operation. Further, Myers also conspired with another elections judge in a scheme to push people to vote for certain candidates. Lastly, that judge also cast votes for candidates who weren’t even on the ballot.

Whether those judges are themselves being prosecuted isn’t mentioned in the DOJ press release that Fox is basing its report on. It’s probable that they were willing to testify against Myers and may have received some kind of immunity. I would hope not, though, given how serious of a crime accepting bribes is.

Of course, the response to this will be that it happened prior to the 2020 election. But anyone who thinks this is an isolated incident in a place like Philidelphia is as naive as they come. In 2020, because of the sudden, likely illegal changes to election rules, including mass mail-in voting, ballot stuffing would have been far easier than in past elections. The idea that absolutely nothing untoward went on when ballot stuffing schemes existed in 2014-2018 is laughable, and anyone not being completely obtuse will admit that.

These major blue cities are plagued with election issues, and those in charge have no incentive to clean things up. For the foreseeable future, Republicans will have to run campaigns that run around corruption that isn’t going anywhere.

(RepublicanWire.org) – The vast majority of Democrats in a new survey said they want to see 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton legitimately investigated over her reported role in a plot to ‘spy’ on GOP rival Donald Trump’s campaign and later after he won the election, his White House.

“A growing chorus of Democrats believe 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be questioned by special advisor John Durham for her alleged role in the Russian secret server scandal in a poll conducted before bombshell revelations that her team spied on Donald Trump’s campaign,” the Daily Mail reported on Sunday.

“In a poll last month, 66 percent of Democrats wanted Clinton questioned, a whopping 22 percentage points higher than how many in her party demanded a probe last October, according to TechnoMetrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP) research,” the report noted.

“The amount of Republicans demanding answers is also swelling, rising to 91 percent in January from 80 percent last October,” the report continued. “Among the independent crowd, those wanting the former secretary of state probed rose to 74 percent from 65 percent.”

Interestingly, the most recent results came before Clinton’s campaign team was linked to a technology firm a Feb. 11 court filing by Durham claims electronically eavesdropped on servers at Trump Tower and the Executive Office of the President under Trump.

“Both polls were completed before Special Counsel John Durham last week released a bombshell report that claimed Clinton’s campaign team tried to spy on former president Trump’s computer servers in a failed attempt to tie him to Russia,” the report noted further.

Following the initial reports regarding Durham’s findings, the Washington Free Beacon reported, citing Federal Election Commission records, that President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign along with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee also used the same tech firm, Neustar Information Services, ahead of the elections.

The outlet noted:

According to Durham, Neustar’s chief technology officer, Rodney Joffe, accessed sensitive web traffic data that the company maintained on behalf of the White House executive office in order to collect “derogatory” information about Donald Trump.

Joffe allegedly provided the information to Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who in turn gave it to the CIA during a meeting in February 2017. Durham charged Sussmann in September with lying to the FBI about his investigation of Trump.

The Biden campaign’s payments raise questions about whether Joffe continued snooping on Trump in the most recent election. The Biden and Clinton campaigns are the only two presidential committees to have ever paid Neustar, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Biden’s campaign paid Neustar $18,819 on Sept. 29, 2020, the records show. The Clinton campaign paid the firm $3,000 in May 2015 for mobile phone services. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee paid $3,000 to Neustar in 2017. Neustar executives and staffers contributed $17,906 to Biden’s campaign, FEC records show.

The Free Beacon adds that it wasn’t clear whether Neustar executives were aware of Joffe’s prior work with the Clinton campaign.

Following Durham’s findings, Trump sounded the alarm over the findings which he said substantiates his many previous claims that his campaign was “spied on.”

“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” he said in a statement.

“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution. In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this,” he added.

The Supreme Court has largely rejected election-related lawsuits latey. So many were surprised when the high court agreed to take on a case related to Arizona’s recently-passed laws banning ballot harvesting and tightening controls over provisional ballots. Not only did the Supreme Court take on the case, but it killed liberals’ election-stealing dreams in Arizona.

USA Today reports that the case, which it calls “the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013,” ended with a 6-3 majority vote in favor of the state’s right to deal with ballot harvesting and other unethical behaviors loved by leftists:

Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion for a 6-3 majority, joined by the court’s conservatives. Associate Justice Elena Kagan wrote a dissent, joined by the court’s liberals, that described the majority opinion as “tragic.”  

The case, the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013, dealt with two provisions of Arizona’s voting law approved long before the 2020 election. State officials passed a law in 2016 barring unions and advocacy organizations from collecting voters’ mail-in ballots, a practice that critics call “ballot harvesting.” 

Democrat stooge Elena Kagan says that the 6-3 decision is a violation of the Voting Rights Act. “What is tragic here is that the Court has (yet again) rewritten – in order to weaken – a statute that stands as a monument to America’s greatness, and protects against its basest impulses,” she says. “What is tragic is that the court has damaged a statute designed to bring about ‘the end of discrimination in voting.'”   The Left argues that these rules impact communities of color disproportionately — but that argument fizzles out once it leaves the media and enters a courtroom, where evidence can be examined responsibly.

This ruling is bad for Democrats, but good for America.

Democrats are going nuts over the recount efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine their story that Joe Biden won the presidency legitimately. Now, patriots in Georgia are joining the fight. A judge in Georgia has ruled that nearly 150,000 absentee ballots must be unsealed as part of an audit effort to ensure the legitimacy of both the presidential election and the state Senate runoffs — all three of which saw Democrats “win.”

Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero has ordered more than 145,000 ballots must be unsealed for inspection. The Atlanta Constitution-Journal reports that while exact details of the audit are being worked out, the goal is to scan and examine the absentee ballots to determine their legitimacy:

At a hearing Friday, Henry County Superior Court Judge Brian Amero made clear the ballots must remain in the custody of Fulton election officials. That could prevent the kind of allegations of mishandling ballots and improper procedures that have dogged a Republican-sponsored audit of ballots in Arizona in recent weeks.

The latest Georgia review cannot change the election results, which were certified months ago and have already been confirmed by multiple recounts. But the plaintiffs say an examination of ballots would get to the bottom of what they see as suspicious activity by election officials at State Farm Arena in November.

The lawsuit was filed by nine Georgia residents who, like a staggering percentage of Americans, believe there was a lot of shady business in the 2020 election. It’s one of more than 30 lawsuits that addressed alleged fraud associated with Joe Biden’s “victory.”

“Voter confidence in our election system is the bedrock of our republic,” says former GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler. “Unfortunately, inconsistencies in Fulton County’s November 2020 absentee ballots cast serious doubt on voters’ faith in our elections.”

Democrats, however, are upset. “It is outrageous that Fulton County continues to be a target of those who cannot accept the results from last year’s election,” says Democrat Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts. “The votes have been counted multiple times, including a hand recount, and no evidence of fraud has been found.

Though this is a victory, it should be noted that Amero opposed a private company auditing the ballots with high-resolution scanning and inspection. Amero plan to order the ballots to be scanned by county officials. The plaintiffs will then be allowed to examine the images. Voting rights group Fair Fight calls it, rightfully,  “a sideshow, not an audit.”

It’s unclear what will happen with this, but we must wonder what is so terrifying about a legitimate audit?

Democrats’ election bill is weird — unless your goal is to steal every election going forward. Democrats are designing a bill that gives them everything President Trump warned us about — bans on voter ID laws, bans on voter roll purges, which are used to remove ineligible voters from the rolls (including dead people), a requirement that mail-in ballots be accepted late, and more. The bill contains over 700 pages that virtually guarantee that any election in the future can be stolen.

The Gateway Pundit reports that a witness for Democrats in a Wednesday hearing related to the bill railed against the idea of removing the dead from the voter rolls. because this constitutes “voter suppression.” Under our country’s laws, the dead may not vote. This is a privilege afforded to legal citizens who are, of course, alive. States regularly purge voter rolls of the deceased, though Democrats have recently invented issues with that, pretending that the goal was to disenfranchise the living.

Dead voters who are concerned with losing their ability to vote in U.S. elections will soon, if Democrats have their way, not have any worries. They’ll be able to fill in votes for whatever leftist is running for office — all because Democrats say that people who are (infrequently) incorrectly removed from voter rolls are enough of a reason to fail to protect the integrity of our elections.

2020 was a mess. The Left used the pandemic to fundamentally reshape how elections happen — mail-in voting, late acceptance of votes in some cases, ballot harvesting. Joe Biden may have “won,” but it was under extremely suspicious circumstances. And Democrats say that this should be the norm rather than an absolute cluster-mess that we need to fix going forward.

This bill cannot become law. The future of our country depends on it. Watch it below:
