A blast from the past - Jim Baker

From Matt Taibbi who was the person releasing the Elon Musk/Hunter Biden details:

THREAD: Twitter Files Supplemental
Matt Taibbi
@mtaibbi

On Friday, the first installment of the Twitter files was published here. We expected to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay.

We can now tell you part of the reason why. On Tuesday, Twitter Deputy General Counsel (and former FBI General Counsel) Jim Baker was fired. Among the reasons? Vetting the first batch of "Twitter Files" -- without knowledge of new management.

The process for producing the "Twitter Files" involved delivery to two journalists (Bari Weiss and me) via a lawyer close to new management. However, after the initial batch, things became complicated.

Over the weekend, while we both dealt with obstacles to new searches, it was @BariWeiss who discovered that the person in charge of releasing the files was someone named Jim. When she called to ask "Jim's" last name, the answer came back: "Jim Baker."

"My jaw hit the floor," says Weiss.

The first batch of files both reporters received was marked, "Spectra Baker Emails."

Baker is a controversial figure. He has been something of a Zelig of FBI controversies dating back to 2016, from the Steele Dossier to the Alfa-Server mess. He resigned in 2018 after an investigation into leaks to the press.

The news that Baker was reviewing the "Twitter files" surprised everyone involved, to say the least. New Twitter chief Elon Musk acted quickly to "exit" Baker Tuesday.

Has more lives than a cat.  Makes me wonder just how many other swamp has-beens are drawing a salary doing nothing in other corporations in America.  Driving costs up paying them for their "service" to the deep state...

From FOX News:

Secret Service won’t say why they changed their position on Hunter Biden gun investigation records
The Secret Service will not say why they changed their position regarding a government watchdog's records request into Hunter Biden’s gun investigation records.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in April 2021 regarding the gun reportedly owned by Biden and disposed of in a dumpster in 2018.

The Secret Service initially told Judicial Watch that they had located records related to their inquiry, but a year later in October, after a September FOIA lawsuit by the government watchdog organization, the presidential protection agency changed its tune.

Judicial Watch was told by the Secret Service in October that the response a year prior was sent in error and they did not have records related to the request.

Whoops - what records...  Some of the government agencies need to have their budgets cut by 80% and have their main offices moved to Adak, Alaska (or maybe someplace even more remote).  They have lost sight of their founding charter.

From the Florida Department of Financial Services:

CFO JIMMY PATRONIS: FLORIDA TREASURY DIVESTING FROM BLACKROCK
Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced that the Florida Treasury will begin divesting $2 billion worth of assets currently under management by BlackRock. The State Treasury will immediately have Florida’s custody bank freeze approximately $1.43 billion worth of long-term securities and remove them as the manager of approximately $600 million worth of short-term overnight investments. These taxpayer funds are invested by asset managers as part of Florida’s Treasury Investment Pool. By the beginning of 2023, the State Treasury will have divested from BlackRock’s management of all short and long-term investments and relocated investment responsibilities to other fund management entities.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “As Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, it’s my responsibility to get the best returns possible for taxpayers. The more effective we are in investing dollars to generate a return, the more effective we’ll be in funding priorities like schools, hospitals and roads. As major banking institutions and economists predict a recession in the coming year, and as the Fed increases interest rates to combat the inflation crisis, I need partners within the financial services industry who are as committed to the bottom line as we are – and I don’t trust BlackRock’s ability to deliver.

Much more at the site.  This is not a major hit to BlackRock financially - they are a huge entity.  But...  It is a shot across the bow and hopefully, other investors will follow.  It will be interesting to see where Florida puts its money...

Ted Cruz Goes Beast Mode, Gets Intense When Chair Tries Shutting Biden Corruption Question Down

Finally - the Hunter Biden Laptop

| No Comments

Had this come out when it happened - October, 2020 - things would be a lot different.
From The New York Post:

Twitter’s ex-safety chief Yoel Roth finally admits mistake of censoring Post’s Hunter Biden scoop
Took him long enough.

The former Twitter executive and safety chief who played a key role in censoring The Post’s October 2020 exposé on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop has admitted it was a mistake — more than two years later.

Yoel Roth, who was Twitter’s head of trust and safety until he quit earlier this month in the wake of Elon Musk’s $44 billion takeover, confessed Tuesday that the company erred in restricting people from sharing the scoop.

In an interview with journalist Kara Swisher, Roth appeared to deflect the blame from himself — insisting that even though he had concerns about the authenticity of the laptop, it never got to the point where he thought the story should be suppressed.

“We didn’t know what to believe, we didn’t know what was true, there was smoke — and ultimately for me, it didn’t reach a place where I was comfortable removing this content from Twitter,” Roth said during an interview at the Knight Foundation conference.

More at the site.  People like Roth bear no responsibility for the consequences of their actions.  They are members of the protected class of "elites" who determine and shape our narrative. The Democrats needed the story to go away - Hunter was a liability.  The story went away.

No corroboration as yet but...

Now that is curious - vehicle fire

One is an unfortunate incident. Five?  From FOX News:

Biden’s Secret Service rental vehicles burst into flames after he left Nantucket vacation
President Joe Biden's rented Secret Service vehicles burst into flames in a parking lot Monday, just one day after he left his Nantucket vacation.

Biden spent Thanksgiving on the ritzy Massachusetts island with his family last week. The Secret Service rented five vehicles from Hertz to carry the president and his family, and all five of them caught fire in the parking lot, according to footage first obtained by the Nantucket Current.

Footage shows firefighters spraying down the smoldering remains of one vehicle's engine block. The five vehicles included a Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX80, Ford Expedition and a Jeep Gladiator.

The vehicles were parked at the Nantucket airport and the blaze reportedly spread to just 40 feet away from the facility's jet fuel tanks. It is currently unknown what caused the fire. Fox News reached out to the White House for information, but they did not immediately respond.

No word - it will take a couple of days to figure out what happened.  Odd...

From The Gateway Pundit:

FTX Donations to Democrats from Foreign Entities Like Ukraine Are in Violation of Executive Order 13848 Signed by President Trump and Biden
We reported this weekend how FTX has gone bankrupt and how it was one of the top donors to Democrats over the past few years.  At least $40 million was donated to the Democrats from FTX.

What we also learned is that FTX is registered in the Bahamas.  This was noted this past week when it was reported that officials in the Bahamas had questioned SBF.

From EO 13848 - specifically:

Section 1. (a) Not later than 45 days after the conclusion of a United States election, the Director of National Intelligence, in consultation with the heads of any other appropriate executive departments and agencies (agencies), shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government, or any person acting as an agent of or on behalf of a foreign government, has acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in that election. The assessment shall identify, to the maximum extent ascertainable, the nature of any foreign interference and any methods employed to execute it, the persons involved, and the foreign government or governments that authorized, directed, sponsored, or supported it. The Director of National Intelligence shall deliver this assessment and appropriate supporting information to the President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security.

So...  19 days have elapsed.  The DNI has 26 more days to act.  Have they even started looking into this?  Will we ever hear about it if they do/not?

Curious development in Canada

Looks like someone from the Biden regime called someone from the Trudeau regime
From Rick Moran writing at PJ Media:

Why Did Biden Admin Lean on Justin Trudeau to Shut Down Canadian 'Freedom Convoy'?
In January 2022, vaccine exemptions for Canadian and American cross-border truckers ended, leaving about 15,000 Canadian truckers who regularly cross the border in the performance of their jobs suddenly unemployed.

Their response was heartening. Thousands of truckers joined “Freedom Convoys,” shutting down border crossings and finally ending up in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, where they virtually occupied Parliament Hill.

Canadian authorities wrung their hands for a while and then decided to declare a national emergency and invoke emergency powers. This allowed them to freeze protesters’ bank accounts, ban travel to protest sites, and compel trucks to tow vehicles blocking streets.

By law, the Canadian parliament must hold hearings on the use of emergency powers in order for the government justify their use. During those hearings, it has been revealed that the Biden administration was leaning heavily on the Trudeau government to crack down on the protests and allow the free flow of goods to proceed. Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland told the Public Order Emergency Commission of a phone call she got from Brian Deese, the director of the National Economic Council and Biden’s top economic adviser.

“They are very, very, very worried,” Freeland wrote in an email to her staff. “If this is not sorted out in the next 12 hours, all of their northeastern car plants will shut down.”

They didn't want these protests to gain traction down here. For all of their bluster, the "elites" are running scared.  Their plans depend on us being complicit in their narrative.  Willing participants. We will own nothing and we will be happy.

Just say no.  It will be interesting to see how the Canadian press covers this.

This is why we need to secure the borders

From US Customs and Border Protection:

CBP Officers Seize $1.5 Million in Cocaine at World Trade Bridge
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers assigned to the World Trade Bridge seized hard narcotics that totaled over $1,500,000 in street value.

“This is an excellent seizure by our officers working at the CBP cargo facilities. It’s a perfect example of their unfailing vigilance in guarding our nation’s borders and protecting lawful trade and travel,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry.

The seizure occurred on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at the World Trade Bridge, when a CBP officer referred a 2001 Freightliner tractor trailer manifesting polypropylene film for secondary inspection. Following a canine and non-intrusive inspection system examination, CBP officers discovered a total of 118.91 pounds of alleged cocaine within the trailer.

The narcotics had a combined street value of $1,587,777.

All this goes to further deteriorate our large democrat-run cities.  The Democrats want things to fail so they can step in and institute totalitarianism.  Classic Cloward-Piven Strategy writ large. Doesn't hurt people like Pelosi and Schumer that they get substantial "campaign contributions" from the cartels - suitably laundered through crypto.

I have to say that these are highly convenient timing for the Democrats
#1) - from The Gateway Pundit:

Sen. Josh Hawley Demands Correspondence Between Federal Officials and Dem Party Leaders Following FTX Collapse and Why the Scheme Was Only Revealed AFTER the Midterm Elections
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) sent a letter to top Biden administration officials Friday morning, demanding information and correspondence regarding the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

Hawley wants to know why the illegal scheme was announced AFTER the midterm elections. FTX owner Sam Bankman-Fried was the second largest donor to Democrats in the 2022 midterms behind only George Soros.

Senator Hawley wants communications between Bankman-Fried and AG Merrick Garland, Securities and Exchange (SEC) Commission Chairman Gary Gensler and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman Rostin Behnam.

And #2) - from CNN:

America faces a possible rail strike in two weeks after largest union rejects labor deal
America faces a growing risk of a crippling national freight rail strike in two weeks after rank-and-file members of the nation’s largest rail union, which represents the industry’s conductors, rejected a tentative labor deal with freight railroads, the union announced Monday.

The nation’s second-largest rail union, which represents engineers, ratified its own contract. But the failure of the conductors to ratify their own deal is another setback to efforts to avoid a crippling nationwide rail strike.

With these votes, all 12 rail unions have now completed their ratification process, with members of eight of the unions voting in favor of deals and four voting against it. The four unions that have voted no will remain on the job until at least early next month while negotiations are held to try to avoid a strike that could cause widespread disruptions in the nation’s still struggling supply chain and overall economy.

If a strike goes on for an extended period, it could cause widespread shortages and higher prices for goods including fuel and food. If the four unions that rejected the deals are unable to reach new deals before strike deadlines, Congress could order the railroad workers to remain on the job or return to work.

Remember that in September, Biden went on record as saying that there would be no strike.  That he had been instrumental in negotiating a settlement amenable to all parties.

In reality, he just asked them to lay low for six months. Probably a sweetheart deal in there somewhere.  This is not leadership.  He was not acting in our interest or in the interest of this nation. He was pandering to a group of people.

Are these people really the best and the brightest?

UPDATE - more below

Three guesses - from America First Report:

Now-Collapsed FTX Crypto Slush Fund Laundered Ukraine Donation Money to Democrat Candidates to Help Rig Midterms
The FTX crypto slush fund run by now-disgraced Sam Bankman-Fried (and his MIT college buddies) laundered money for Ukraine into nearly $40 million worth of campaign donations for Democrats in the 2022 mid-term elections.

Over the last year, Joe Biden and the Democrats have pushed through well over $50 billion in funding for Ukraine, using US taxpayer money. Internationally, over $100 billion has been donated to Ukraine, according to Devex.com which has compiled worldwide donations and grants to the Ukrainian cause.

FTX simultaneously processed donations to Ukraine by using its crypto infrastructure. As CoinDesk.com reported in May of this year, “Ukraine Partners With FTX, Everstake to Launch New Crypto Donation Website.”

In other words, the corrupt Ukraine regime partnered with a corrupt crypto slush fund to take dollars from the corrupt US government and funnel them into the hands of corrupt Democrat candidates to win rigged mid-term elections.

I had heard about the campaign contributions through several other sources.  Did not know about their handling the Ukranian money laundering side of things.  Not surprising. Heard that AOC is now worth $27 million dollars - not bad for a bartender and a representative earning $170K/year.

UPDATE - the story is breaking.  The Gateway Pundit has a lot more.  Verified from several sources.  Money earmarked by Congress and intended for Ukraine, transfered to crypto and then donated right back to Democrats.  Money laundering at its finest. Zelensky and his cronies pocket their 20% and everyone gets to portray Russia as the baddies.

UPDATE - the whole story in 99 seconds:

From The Western Journal:

Ballots Have Now Gone Missing After Dominion Voting Machine Disaster
After Dominion Voting machines in Mercer County, New Jersey, failed to read ballots, forcing voters to complete paper ballots, hundreds or even thousands of those paper ballots have now disappeared.

Some 3,211 voters from three Princeton districts who cast their ballots at the municipal building may end up disenfranchised if the ballots are not recovered, as could up to 835 Robbinsville residents who voted at the Mercer County Library.

Microcosm of a much larger problem.   Time for some people to face five years in jail.  Get back to voting as it used to be.

Back in the news again - trying to remain relevant. From The Western Journal:

Globalist Group 'The Elders' Is Working to Make the UN Even More Powerful
The United Nations needs to be more muscular and united if it wants to remain a central player in tackling the world’s multiple escalating crises, a group of elder statesmen founded by Nelson Mandela said Friday.

Former world leaders in the group known as “The Elders” told Associated Press executives that the U.N.’s most powerful organ, the Security Council, needs to address the paralyzing impact of its vetoes, and the secretary-general of the 193-member world organization needs to speak out on violations of international law.

First wrote about them in 2007 a few months after they formed:

Meet "The Elders"
Christ on a Corn Dog -- what a load of solipsistic crap... From the website: The Elders

"This group can speak freely and boldly, working both publicly and behind the scenes on whatever actions need to be taken. Together we will work to support courage where there is fear, foster agreement where there is conflict, and inspire hope where there is despair"

And my comment:

Other luminaries in this collection of pandering idiots include Kofi Annan, Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu and eight other similar luminaries. What a bunch of self-serving little ponces. Do you know what I would call one of their face-to-face meetings? A target-rich environment...

I had written about them in 2012 when they raised their heads again:

Could have guessed - Kofi Annan
Annan is a delusional moron. I apologize to all the wonderful morons out there but Annan is in a case all by himself.

Just look at his "legacy" as El Supremo at the United Nations (and talking about delusional morons).

I'm not even getting into his son (Kojo) and his own corruption (herehere and here)

Kofi got tied up with Jimmy (spit) Carter in a group called The Elders (their website here) and one of their recent triumphs is:

The Elders call for an immediate halt to violence in Syria
As violence in Syria continues to threaten the safety of thousands of people, The Elders call on the Syrian government to halt its military assault and enable a "humanitarian pause"
to allow medical assistance and basic supplies to reach those in need.

Kofi was their point man flying over there for some "dialogue"

And then a few months later when Jimmy felt compelled to dip his flaccid dick into world politics

Hey Jimmy - put a sock in your piehole and go home
This is beyond imbecilic -- from Washington D.C.s CBS affiliate:

Jimmy Carter Claims Israel Creating "Catastrophic" Situation With Palestinians
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Monday during a visit to Jerusalem that the prospect of an Israel-Palestinian peace accord is vanishing, blaming Israeli settlement of the West Bank.
Carter, a longtime critic of Israeli policies, called the current situation catastrophic and blamed Israel for the growing isolation of east Jerusalem from the West Bank. He said a Palestinian state has become unviable.

The concept of a palestinian state is an outgrowth of the KGB campaign to destabilize the area.  They groomed Yasser Arafat and bankrolled his creation of the palestinian people.  The people in question are Jordanian.

Seriously, these people need to go back to their Lemon Party and get the fsck off the world stage.  They failed as leaders the first time around.  Now?  In this incarnation?  They are worse than impotent - they are bumbling old fools who need to be put out to pasture.

In reality - the same thing can be said about the entire United Nations.  Their various organizations are corrupt and they serve only the interests of the elites.  Move the headquarters to one of Saddam Hussein's palaces and turn the Manhattan real-estate into a Trump Tower.

We are only tools for the elite to exploit to gain power and money.
Case in point? The Washington Free Beacon:

Brutal Murders, Rotting Corpses, Broken Elevators: Inside Raphael Warnock’s Secret Low-Income Apartment Building
A maintenance man charged with brutally murdering a tenant. A sex offender who slept in the hallways. A dead body left in an apartment for days, found covered in flies.

These are just a few disturbing tales of the living conditions in apartments owned by Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D., Ga.) church, gathered from interviews with residents and hundreds of pages of Atlanta Police Department, Fire Department, and court records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Atlanta police and firefighters have been called to Columbia Tower and the Columbia Senior Residences at MLK Village in Atlanta hundreds of times since 2020, the records show. Responding officers have been met with corpses and people trapped in elevators, as well as fights, burglaries, and car thefts. Both buildings are owned by the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Warnock serves as senior pastor.

The Free Beacon also learned that Columbia Tower management hired a convicted murderer now charged with killing a female tenant who lived with him at Columbia Senior Residences, which is just across the street from the apartment building.

That is only the start of a long and disgusting article.  For Ebenezer Baptist Church to be treating those under its care like this shows that they have fallen a long way from when Dr. King ran the place.  It has fallen into squalor and needs to be cleaned out.  To think that this man wants to be Senator.  He can not keep his own house clean - why should he be managing the affairs of his constituents when he can not manage his own (he has a record of domestic violence).

    • Marjorie Campbell, 66, was Nancy Pelosi's neighbor for 10 years on Broadway Street in San Francisco, California
    • Campbell tells DailyMail.com she remembers fleets of black SUVS surrounding the Speaker's mansion 24/7
    • She also recalls her computers getting scrambled by alleged security measures to protect the nation's Number Three
    • 'Everybody in the neighborhood had alarms on our windows,' the former neighbor said. 'So if glass smashed, an alarm went off'

Forensic Experts Suggest Mathematical “Red Flags” In First Round of Brazilian Presidential Election, Cites Benford’s Law
This dossier was provided to us by a credible expert source and was created by a small group of technical experts in the fields of mathematics, political science, and forensic analysis, all who are well versed in election statistics and electoral anomalies.

The source provided this document and demonstrated the credibility of the authors who are presenting here their statistical findings on the first round of the Brazilian elections (held Sunday October 2nd).

The source group applied Benford’s Law, a highly recognized statistical formula, to analyze publicly available data provided by the Brazilian Electoral Court (TSE). The formula showed inconsistencies in voting tabulation in several regions across the country.

The links to the TSE’s publicly available data is in the document, and other experts are invited to conduct the same Benford’s Law test on the data. The voting tabulation graphs are also available — showing the region, the candidate, and the digit analyzed. Several charts show Benford’s Law curve in a certain format, while the actual curve of the vote tabulation veers completely off from it. This is what points to manipulation according to the expert source.

Much more at the site.
Some very large irregularities in the 2020 elections too - close swing-states that Biden "won".

Benford's Law is pretty immutable when it comes to a random distribution of numbers. 
Some history from InfoGalactic:

The discovery of Benford's law goes back to 1881, when the American astronomer Simon Newcomb noticed that in logarithm tables the earlier pages (that started with 1) were much more worn than the other pages. Newcomb's published result is the first known instance of this observation and includes a distribution on the second digit, as well. Newcomb proposed a law that the probability of a single number N being the first digit of a number was equal to log(N + 1) − log(N).

The phenomenon was again noted in 1938 by the physicist Frank Benford, who tested it on data from 20 different domains and was credited for it. His data set included the surface areas of 335 rivers, the sizes of 3259 US populations, 104 physical constants, 1800 molecular weights, 5000 entries from a mathematical handbook, 308 numbers contained in an issue of Reader's Digest, the street addresses of the first 342 persons listed in American Men of Science and 418 death rates. The total number of observations used in the paper was 20,229. This discovery was later named after Benford (making it an example of Stigler's Law).

It is used a lot in accounting as a "sniff test" for fraud.  It is simple and it works.

The police were let in by an unidentified third party who was also in the house.  The glass in the entry door was broken but the pieces are on the outside, not inside.  The "suspect" was in his underwear - the neighborhood is heavily patroled and someone dressed like that would be pulled over.  The 911 call indicated that David was a "friend"

Two stories - John Kerry

| No Comments

Clueless twit.  To think that he actually tried to run for President. Idiot.
Story number one:  from FOX News:

Judicial Watch sues Biden admin over John Kerry's travel costs, calendar, staffer info
Government watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to obtain information and documents from Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry's office that have been hidden from public view.

Judicial Watch's lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia last month, alleges that the State Department has blocked the group from obtaining basic information about the internal operations of Kerry's office in violation of the Freedom of Information Act. The 1967 law requires the federal government to disclose information and documents upon request.

"The American people have a right to know what John Kerry is up to, what we’re paying to fly him around the world, and who we pay to actually work for him," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement shared with Fox News Digital.

Kerry used to be Secretary of State during the Obama regime. What is he doing now?  Any unauthorized US Citizen acting in the interests of the USA is violating the Logan Act. A felony.

And story number two?  From The Washington Examiner:

Climate envoy John Kerry weighs departure as Republican wave looms
President Joe Biden’s special climate envoy John Kerry is weighing whether to depart the administration after the COP27 climate conference, according to a report.

The November elections could pose new challenges as Kerry seeks to navigate a political landscape dominated by global energy needs in the wake of Russia’s war in Ukraine and diminishing traction on cooperation with China, a significant fossil fuel emitter.

He faces the prospect of Republican-led inquiries in Congress if the party wins control in the midterm elections and scrutiny from climate activists frustrated by the scope of his progress.

Hoping to get out before he is prosecuted?  Hoping to avoid prosecution?  The punishment for treason is pretty straightforward.

Another look by the London Daily Mail:

Hunter's $11MILLION Chinese connections: DailyMail.com analysis reveals president's son and brother Jim Biden pocketed seven-figure salaries and hefty bonuses from lucrative joint venture linked to Communist Party and Beijing 'spies'

    • A DailyMail.com analysis of bank records tracks the money flow from Chinese business partners and members of the Biden family between September 2017 and November 2018
    • Chinese oil giant CEFC plowed almost $11M into a joint venture with Hunter Biden - which was squirreled away largely by the president's son and his family in just a year
    • As CEFC poured millions into the venture, Hunter and his uncle Jim Biden paid themselves $100,000 and $65,000 monthly salaries, respectively, records show
    • The millions of dollars were ostensibly for the Bidens' efforts to land energy deals for CEFC around the world
    • Hundreds of pages of bank records were released Tuesday by GOP Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson who have been investigating the First Son
    • The lawmakers say the documents lay out 'the Biden family's connections to the Chinese regime and persons connected to its military and intelligence elements'
    • They claim the evidence amounts to 'potential criminal financial activity with respect to Hunter and James Biden,' - Joe's brother who goes by 'Jim'
    • The report said Hunter and Jim's companies received over $4.9M from Hudson West - a company jointly owned by Hunter's firm and a CEFC subsidiary

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, was fined nearly $25 million Wednesday for intentionally and repeatedly violating Washington’s campaign finance laws.

King County Superior Court Judge Douglass North issued the maximum possible fine to the social media giant, after finding that the company had, between 2019 and 2021, violated Washington’s longstanding political disclosure law 822 separate times.

It is the largest campaign finance penalty ever issued anywhere in the country, Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office said.

Needless to say, Section 230 needs to be looked at.

Due to the 2018 Directive from your office instructing counties to register voters without verification of identity, the need to verify the identity and eligibility of mail and absentee ballot applicants is even more critical to the integrity of our elections. As of October 21, 2022, records of 2022 Mail Ballot Data shows that counties have already mailed over 240,000 unverified ballots.

Deputy Secretary Jonathan Marks is the Deputy Secretary of State and is the person who is responsible for issuing ballots and making sure that their office complies with said rules and regulations.

Marks said that the unverified voter's ballot will not be counted unless the voter provides a valid form of ID. He minimized the issue and previously testified that the non-matches account for just a "small percentage" of the ballots sent. According to the SoS data, as of October 21,2022, a staggering 24O,OOO ballots are "NOT VERIFIED". That is an enormous number of ballots which, according to the law, must be set aside and not counted for the 2022 General Election unless the voter produces ID.

Again, they have nothing to run on so they have to cheat.

It is not enough that this cheating is brought to light.  People need to be prosecuted and convicted and the sentences need to hurt.  Discourage the cheating. Put them on notice.  This is for the benefit of the entire Nation.

Lining the pockets of those close to the seat of power. The latest - from Politico:

Abrams’ campaign chair collected millions in legal fees from voting rights organization
ATLANTA — The voting rights organization founded by Stacey Abrams spent more than $25 million over two years on legal fees, mostly on a single case, with the largest amount going to the self-described boutique law firm of the candidate’s campaign chairwoman.

Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Abrams’ close friend who chaired her gubernatorial campaign both in 2018 and her current bid to unseat Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, is one of two named partners in Lawrence & Bundy, a small firm of fewer than two dozen attorneys.

The firm received $9.4 million from Abrams’ group, Fair Fight Action, in 2019 and 2020, the last years for which federal tax filings are available. Lawrence-Hardy declined to comment on how much her firm has collected from Fair Fight Action in 2021 and 2022 — years in which Fair Fight Action v. Raffensperger, for which Lawrence-Hardy was lead counsel, had most of its courtroom activity

$25,000,000 divided by 250 (working days in one year) divided by 2 years = $50,000 being spent each and every day.  That is a huge amount of money.  What are they getting in return?  Has Allegra purchased a new house recently?  Must be nice...

Interesting times - Britain

Too young to be sitting at the adults table - this one is just a puppet being groomed.

Big bowl of popcorn - discovery anyone?  From the London Daily Mail:

Judge grants depositions of Fauci, Jen Psaki and other high ranking Biden officials in case over 'collusive relationship' between administration and social media companies to 'censor free speech'

    • US District Judge Terry Doughty granted the request led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry
    • The suit alleges the Biden administration actively worked with social media companies and encouraged them to censor 'disfavored' viewpoints and were in violation of the First Amendment rights of those individuals
    • Anthony Fauci, Jen Psaki, the former White House Press Secretary, FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan, among others will be deposed
    • Before Friday's order, the judge gave the White House 21 days to comply
    • He threw away the Justice Department's attempt to use executive privilege
    • Doughty ruled that executive privilege does not apply to external communications by White House officials

The pushback is starting.  Going to be a fun couple of years.

So true - the evolution
