Russia to Catalogue Foreigners in Police Biometric Database

The Russian Interior Ministry told state media on Saturday that it plans to create a national biometric database over the next three years that can identify both Russian citizens and foreign nationals using facial recognition, fingerprints, and genetic data.

Ukraine introduced biometric control for Russian citizens and those of 69 other countries starting from January 1 claiming a significant number of illegal migrants enter its territory from Russia. 3,300 foreigners, including 1,900 Russians, crossed the Ukrainian border on the first day of January, after this new biometric system was launched, the government said.

EXCLUSIVE: Pollster Richard Baris Calls Out Big Tech, Says Media ‘Lying’ about Voter Fraud

Big Data Poll Director Richard Baris slammed both Big Tech and the liberal media after being silenced by Twitter for speaking out about voter fraud in the 2020 election. Baris was blocked from his Twitter account earlier this month for sharing research pointing to the possibility of voter fraud. His wife Laura and his polling firm were also blocked from their respective accounts as well. Baris’s account has since been restored. In a new interview with MRC Business, Baris warned about the interference of Big Tech and the liberal media into the 2020 election by hoodwinking the American people into believing that there’s no evidence of voter and election fraud. His main message to the press trying to black out the issue: “Media should stop lying to the American people about the reality of both voter and election fraud. There are examples of both in every election.” Baris continued: “The question this year has never been whether there was fraud, but rather how widespread it was and whether it was enough to impact the outcome of the election in any of these critical battleground states.” [Emphasis added.] Just The News founder John Solomon released a report today arguing that “a mountain of evidence has been amassed in private lawsuits alleging there was, in fact, significant and widespread voting misconduct.” In Baris’s view, “the states in question essentially used Covid-19 as a predicate to put a moratorium on election integrity laws, including long-standing established laws and verification procedures.” When asked about his perspective on why Twitter would want to block his research along with censoring his wife and polling firm, Baris explained:  Prior to this, I’ve never had a problem with big tech that we are aware of, to include suspensions. It was only when we made public that we were investigating fraud, and were in fact finding troubling patterns, that we were suspended. [PolitiFact] contacted us asking for our initial findings. We refused and told them they would read about it like everyone else. Shortly after, we were all suspended from Twitter. In addition to behavior like this, Twitter had dubiously censored at least 300,000 Tweets this election cycle it unilaterally decided were "disputed and potentially misleading.” Since May 2018, Twitter has restricted President Donald Trump and his campaign 262 times. By contrast, former Vice President Joe Biden and his campaign were not censored at all. Baris then gave the MRC an in-depth summarization of some of his key findings pointing to disturbing trends that suggest the possibility of voter fraud. According to Baris, “The stopping of vote-counting and commencing the count again in the middle of the night and early morning hours is not typical, nor is it what officials told us they would do in areas such as Wayne County, Michigan, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.” [Emphasis added.] As Baris stated:  [L]ike others, I saw allegations citing specific records on social media and received emails from voters who told us they had deceased loved ones who somehow managed to cast absentee ballots. Turnout in certain precincts also began to approach levels we see in mandatory voting nations, which is not normal even for high turnout elections in the U.S., particularly in areas with little to no population growth. Baris told the MRC that he decided to take action and analyze the abnormal voting trends in some of the key swing states: I decided to use the resources at our disposal to randomly pull records with deceased and change-of-address flags in several states. Even with relatively small samples we can identify a potentially larger, even systemic problem by the percentage of irregularities in those subsamples. In Michigan, it was very clear that a higher-than-expected number of suspected deceased voters did request and submit absentee ballots, [emphasis added.] The next step for Baris was to “confirm whether these records were in fact truly deceased and whether their votes counted.” In Baris’s estimation, “We are still in the latter stage now, but can state without a doubt that confirmed dead and movers did vote in various states.” He concluded: “Even if some of these votes didn’t count, it still leaves open the question of who was turning in these ballots. It’s also worth noting, that it is highly unlikely that explanation accounts for even a majority of the records we found given the lower-than-average rejection rates for absentee ballots this year.” [Emphasis added.] Conservatives are under attack. Contact Twitter: (415) 222-9670, Facebook, Twitter or mail to 1355 Market Street Suite 900 and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

CNN Lets Lincoln Project Stooge Advocate Revoking Republican Canvasser's Legal License

On Monday, CNN Newsroom host Kate Bolduan brought on a member of the Lincoln Project who insisted that it was “unlawful” for any member of Michigan’s canvassing board to delay certifying that state’s election results. Jeff Timmer, whom Bolduan identified as a “senior advisor” for the disgraced organization, advocated that the American Bar Association either sanction or outright revoke the legal license of any Republican who refused to certify Michigan’s election results immediately. Bolduan never pushed back against any of Timmer’s legal hyperbole, instead giving her guest free rein to regurgitate all the familiar media-approved talking points about the contested election: “I think this is turning into a circus, and it’s complete with clowns.” Timmer continued: “…to most people clowns are funny, but to a lot of people they’re scary and I think we need to be scared about what could take place today.” He twice claimed that it would be illegal for Michigan’s canvassing board to temporarily delay certifying their election results. “All the evidence before us says this is going to be a deadlocked vote, which is unlawful.” “The two Republicans [on the board] are attorneys. They’re officers of the court, and if they don’t vote to certify, they’re taking an unlawful vote.” At least one of those two Republicans, Norman Shinkle, had indicated he would vote to delay certification, causing Bolduan to inquire cynically, “What do you think his game is here?”     Timmer then did that thing that seemingly everyone at the Lincoln Project loves to do: he demanded potentially career-destroying consequences for any Republican attorney who failed to behave how he thought they ought to. JEFF TIMMER: [Shinkle] has indicated he's not likely to vote in favor of certification.  He’ll probably have to answer to the Bar Association for that. KATE BOLDUAN: Do you think he should? TIMMER: I think he should. He has to certify. It's his obligation. He has a sworn oath to do so. BOLDUAN: Do you — when you say he should answer to the Bar Association, are you saying he should, like, lose his license? TIMMER: Well, sanctions are definitely possible. The court has held canvassers in contempt before when they failed to do their duty. As a lawyer, I would be worried about that. Say what you will about the Lincoln Project, but at least they know how to give CNN hosts what they want. To read a transcript of Bolduan’s interview with her ostensibly conservative guest, click “expand” below:   11/23/2020 CNN Newsroom, 11 am hour 11:05 — 11:09 am ET   KATE BOLDUAN: Joining me now is someone who knows a lot about this: Jeff Timmer, a Republican who's a former member of Michigan's state board of canvassers, now a senior adviser to the Lincoln Project. Thanks for coming on. What do you think is going to happen today?   JEFF TIMMER: I think this is turning into a circus, and it’s complete with clowns. But to most people clowns are funny, but to a lot of people they're scary, and I think we need to be scared about what could take place today.   BOLDUAN: Do you — it’s, it really is unknown, it depends on how people are going to vote. Do you foresee this being delayed further or do you — does your gut tell you this is going to get wrapped up and there's going to be a 3-1 or 4-0 vote in favor of certification? What do you think?   TIMMER: All the evidence before us says this is going to be a deadlocked vote. Which is unlawful. The Republicans on the board, as well as the Democrats, has [sic] a legal obligation to certify, and the two Republicans are attorneys. They’re officers of the court, and if they don't vote to certify they're taking an unlawful vote. BOLDUAN: You're not talking about just some people. You know these people. Like Norman Shinkle, he’s one of the two Republicans who’s on this canvassing board, he’s the one we've been talking about who’s been signaling that he is going to vote to delay, sort of vote against certifying the results today. You know him, you've served on that board with him. What do you think his game is here? TIMMER: I can't even begin to answer that. This board has no investigatory power. They have no ability to look into any allegations of fraud or misconduct. That's for the criminal justice system, not this board. This board is effectively, at this point, a rubber stamp that needs to certify the results before anything else can take place. BOLDUAN: Have you had a chance to speak with him? TIMMER:  I have not. But I know many people who has [sic], and he has indicated he's not likely to vote in favor of certification.  He’ll probably have to answer to the bar association for that. BOLDUAN: Do you think he should? TIMMER: I think he should. He has to certify. It's his obligation. He has a sworn oath to do so. BOLDUAN: Do you — when you say he should answer to the bar association, are you saying he should, like, lose his license? TIMMER: Well, sanctions are definitely possible. The court has held canvassers in contempt before when they failed to do their duty. As a lawyer, I would be worried about that. BOLDUAN: Now, look, Joe Biden won Michigan by more than 150,000 votes, yet the President and his team, they are trying to delay the reality as we can see. At least in part, part of the reason is fundraising. The President is funding his own post-White House political life, his leadership PAC, by saying that he's raising money to fund the legal challenges. He's fundraising off of these legal challenges. If that is the reason that he continues to push, in Michigan, what do you say to that, Jeff? TIMMER: Well, it's unconscionable. There are no legal actions in Michigan, but there are people who think there are. And he is, he's fleecing his followers for more money to pay the debts from the campaign. And it really is unconscionable because what he’s doing is, he's threatening the rule of law and the faith in the elections.  We had an election in Michigan. It wasn't even close. Biden won by a margin 15 times greater than Trump won four years ago. This isn’t close, it’s over. It's been over since Wednesday, November 4th, and it's time to move on. BOLDUAN: Look, it seems — the way you put it, it seems like it's pretty cut and dry. But the way that it's playing out is anything but cut and dry. How is this going — what kind of long-term damage do you think is going to be had on election — the electoral process in Michigan or how people view elections in your important state? TIMMER: Well, what we're finding is that, you know, a solid majority of those who voted for Trump think the election is being stolen from them, and that's nonsense. It's going to undermine faith in democracy. People need to accept there are winners and losers in an election, and sometimes their side loses. You move on and fight the next election. That's what they should be doing now. BOLDUAN: Yeah. Let’s see what happens in the next couple of hours. Jeff, please come back on. I’m really interested to hear your take when we do find out how this vote ends up, and then we look at what’s next.

EXCLUSIVE: If Illegitimate and Unexplained Negative Votes Were Reversed or Eliminated in Georgia, President Trump Would Easily Win the State

We’ve reported numerous times on the vote and election fraud in Georgia.  We now have uncovered that if the illegitimate and unexplained negative votes that were recorded and included in Georgia’s vote totals were properly reversed or eliminated, President Trump would hold the lead in Georgia.

Overall it is clear that Georgia did not vote for Joe Biden.  We believe not many people did.  Once the stinch of fraud is eliminated, Georgia will end up a very red state.  President Trump won Georgia by more than 5% in 2019.  There is no way this was reversed.  The amount of fraud that occurred in this state in 2020 is inconceivable.

In 2020 President Trump set a monumental new record by adding over 11 million new votes to his 2016 tally across the US.

President Trump won bellwether states Florida and Ohio by 5% and by more than this in Iowa.

But now the media wants you to believe that Georgia went blue under Donald Trump.
Does anyone believe this?

On Election day and late into the night President Trump was leading in Georgia by 100,000 votes.

Then as we previously reported earlier after Biden gained a lead following MASSIVE vote dumps, the remainder of the votes in the state possessed the same Biden to Trump ratio.

WE CAUGHT THEM! Part 6: Michigan and Georgia, Like in PA and VA, Caught in SAME PATTERN! — Once Biden Gained Lead with MASSIVE Vote Dumps, The Remainder of Votes All Possessed Same Biden to Trump Vote Ratio – THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE!

The results in Georgia were not random.  They were stolen.

Not a single batch in our data set after the “lead switch event” varied from that margin for all new vote batches. This is inconceivable and indicates fraud.

Since our previous report on Georgia more data fraud has been reported.

As previously reported, YouTube user Endeez found at least one batch of votes of 23,000 dumped into the total 98% of them for Joe Biden.
This is impossible and points to more fraud.

Georgia was STOLEN from President Trump.

Now another individual has provided us information on the Georgia election fraud.  If you recall from our prior posts there were numerous negative votes in the data set which showed the President crushing it in Georgia for most the day and night.  Then there were thousands of data set dumps for Biden, but many of them were interspersed with these negative amounts for the candidates.

These negative vote counts which make no logical sense are embedded throughout the NYT-Edison data.  What the data is telling us is that thousands and even millions of Americans came in after voting and asked to take their vote back.  This clearly does not happen.  The only other rationale for the entries ultimately is fraud.

Our reader tells us, that in Georgia alone, if all negative entries for both Biden and Trump were reversed or eliminated, then President Trump would have the lead in the election.

There are 26 Updates with negative entries, which represents a significant 5.2% of ALL Batches!  Since each time there’s a negative entry, the discrepancy of vote shares is 70%+ and mostly in Biden’s favor, it’s logical to remove those entries from the vote tally.

Removing these negative entries will give Trump a higher vote (2,458,439) vs. Biden (2,446,374) based solely on NYT data set.  Note that this differential vote at 12,066 is practically the same as the final tally difference after the Recount!

The inclusion or not of negative entries in the tally will determine the winner in Georgia.

The negative votes alone, if reversed or removed, would give President Trump the lead in Georgia.

‘You’re Such a D*ck!’ – Maskless NJ Gov. Phil Murphy Confronted About Covid Lockdown, Masks While Dining Out with His Family (VIDEO)

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) was confronted about his Covid lockdown orders and mask mandate while he was out dining with his family.

A group of fed up people confronted a maskless Murphy dining with his family at a restaurant in Asbury Park over the weekend.

Murphy just extended New Jersey’s Covid lockdown order for the NINTH time since March.

“The state has experienced significant upticks in the rate of reported new cases across all counties, demonstrating the need for many of the state’s current measures to remain in place, both to reduce additional new infections and to save lives,” Murphy said.

Governor Murphy is out enjoying a dinner with his family while he tells his state to restrict Thanksgiving gatherings and harasses gym owners.

“Oh my God, Murphy, you are such a dick,” one woman said, as another is heard saying, “How you doing? How you doing? You having fun with your family in the meantime? You’re having all kind of other bullshit going on at your house?”

Murphy continued to cut his steak and smile.

“Are you guys a little too drunk?” one of Murphy’s sons asked. “Can you put your mask on?”

“No I’m not drunk, as a matter of fact,” one woman said. “You can go f*ck yourself, how’s that? I don’t need a f*cking mask! You know why I don’t need a mask? Because there ain’t nothing f*cking wrong with me.”

“You don’t have a mask on,” the woman said scolding Murphy’s son.

Murphy actually put a mask on after being browbeaten by the women!

Here is a list of Covid rules for Thanksgiving in New Jersey (it’s only for the peasants):

  • Limit the number of attendees to allow people from different households to remain at least six feet apart;
  • Plan ahead and ask guests to avoid contact with people outside of their households for 14 days before the gathering. “Thanksgiving is 11 days away, so if you haven’t started doing that, start limiting your interactions today,” Persichilli said Nov. 16 when she went over the guidelines;
  • Guests should avoid direct contact, including handshakes and hugs with others outside their household;
  • The best option is to host outdoors rather than indoors as much as possible;
  • Wear masks. Even outdoors requires guests to wear masks when not eating or drinking;
  • If you do host indoors, increase your ventilation by opening windows and doors or placing central air and heating on continuous circulation;
  • If you are hosting provide attendees with supplies to help everyone stay healthy. These include extra masks, perhaps, and hand sanitizer and tissues, and stocking bathrooms with enough hand soap and single use towels;
  • Remind attendees to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol;
  • Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces or shared items, such as serving utensils. Use single-use options or identify one person to share shareable items, like salad dressing or food containers, plates, utensils and condiments;
  • Encourage guests to avoid singing or shouting – especially indoors;
  • Keep music levels down so people don’t have to shout or speak loudly to be heard.

The DiAngelo factor

(Scott Johnson)

The Washington Free Beacon’s Charles Fain Lehman reports on the forum conducted via Zoom by the University of Wisconsin’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement. Doing the work that the mainstream media refuse to do, Lehman draws on documents obtained from the university in response to a freedom-of-information request for this outstanding report. Here is the opening:

The prominent diversity consultant Robin DiAngelo raked in $12,750 for a speaking gig last month at the University of Wisconsin—70 percent more than the other keynote speaker, black female author Austin Channing Brown.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement paid Channing Brown just $7,500 for her keynote address at its annual Diversity Forum, receipts obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. The payments were negotiated with the Harry Walker Agency, a New York-based speakers bureau that represents both women.

DiAngelo has called such inequitable treatment the racist heart of capitalism, claiming that “capitalism is dependent on inequality.… If the model is profit over everything else, you’re not going to look at your policies to see what is most racially equitable.”

There are so many absurd elements to the story that one may infer it is impossible to satirize higher education conjoined with the big business of anti-racism. Much more here.

Quotable quote: “And while DiAngelo has made her name demanding that white people stop avoiding difficult conversations, she did not respond to multiple requests for comment from the Free Beacon.”

Whoopi Wails Trump's Attempting a 'Coup:' 'This Is What Dictators Do!'

The View hosts were back Monday, still sounding more like CNN every day with their crazy conspiracy theories about President Trump. This time, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin spread unnecessary fear into their viewers by insisting that President Trump was “attempting a coup” like “dictators do” by contesting the election results by asking for recounts and taking to court their concerns about alleged voter fraud.  As the hosts wailed about Trump’s lawsuits, Whoopi declared this “feels like, like they’re attempting a coup to me, Sunny.” She added, “I know everybody doesn't want to hear that, but that's what dictators do when they try to say this election isn’t real. This didn’t happen, I'm going to to change it,” before asking fellow co-host Sunny Hostin to back her up. The ABC legal analyst and hack of course agreed. “I have to agree with you on that, Whoopi. It feels very much like what we see in countries where there are dictators. We see these coups. We see these attempts to really overturn-- to steal elections, and I think that's what we're seeing here,” she fretted. Maybe the hosts need to look up what a “coup” actually means. Here’s the dictionary definition: “a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.” Not only are the lawsuits legal, but are they honestly suggesting Trump is going to use violence to hole himself up in the White House come January if these lawsuits don’t change the results?     Whoopi doubled down on her statement to end the segment: "This is -- I'm sorry. This is an attempted coup. This is what dictators do when they want to take a country away from its people." She worried that Trump might be successful in his "coup" if Republicans don't stand up to the president: "[S]omebody better step up before you suddenly turn around and they have taken the country, and now you have no recourse. You don't have a recourse. Either we fix it now or he's going to walk away with it!" Later on the hosts shared more hate for the president and his supporters. Whoopi hoped the media would stop paying attention to him: Once you-know-who finally does get out of the White House, if ever, what is the media going to do? Are they going to have a lot of air time to fill? Because almost 74 million people apparently voted for him, so can the constant coverage of him just stop? Ana Navarro and Joy Behar bragged they would be “unfollowing” President Trump’s Twitter, while Navarro ranted, “We should all stop following him because at that point the things he tweets out are no longer presidential statements. It's just an old, windbag loser tweeting out whatever stream of consciousness he has,” she spewed. But Hostin lamented that “racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic” President Trump would continue to have influence: Well, I think Trumpism is here to stay, quite frankly. Like you said, Whoopi and Joy, over 70 million people voted for him in spite of the fact they knew he was racist, and misogynist, transphobic, homophobic, and they voted for him anyway. It just seems to me that people's hearts and minds don't change that quickly, and if we stop talking about President Trump, then, you know, I'm always fearful that past becomes prologue, right? When you forget about the past, it can happen again and again and again, and I do think that we're seeing someone that is trying to avenge, you know, Joe Biden's election, someone who is bankrupt when it comes to morality, and the bottom line is this could happen again…. You can contact The View's advertisers Ocean Spray and Vick's at the Conservatives Fight Back page here. Read a transcript below: ABC's The View 11/23/2020 11:07 a.m. Eastern WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Right, and there's so much disinformation coming out about these crazy court cases that he keeps doing, and what's happening in Michigan right now. I mean, it feels like -- like they're attempting a coup to me, Sunny. I know everybody doesn't want to hear that, but that's what dictators do when they try to say this election isn’t real. This didn’t happen, I'm going to to change it. What do you think is happening, Sunny? Particularly in Michigan and in Georgia?  SUNNY HOSTIN:  I have to agree with you on that, Whoopi. It feels very much like what we see in countries where there are dictators. We see these coups. We see these attempts to really overturn-- to steal elections, and I think that's what we're seeing here….I want to mention that I have a friend, Wesley, who lives in Japan, and he texted me this over the weekend. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Just got into an argument with my host father in Japan who now believes the election was stolen. Someone has built an entire misinformation campaign to delegitimatize the election results in the United States, and he attached to his text, tons of messages in Japanese. In Japanese. So this is what's happening. It's being disseminated across the world, not only here.  WHOOPI: Yes.  HOSTIN:  It's just despicable.  WHOOPI: This is -- I'm sorry. This is an attempted coup. This is what dictators do when they want to take a country away from its people. Now, you know, 21 people are sitting around saying, you know, he's not -- he's not, you know, he lost, he lost, he lost. You all -- somebody better step up before you suddenly turn around and they have taken the country, and now you have no recourse. You don't have a recourse. Either we fix it now or he's going to walk away with it because his lies are many, and they go farther and farther and farther, and it doesn't matter what we seem to say here because the lies seem to quadruple as soon as we speak, then they have a lie to block it.

Twitter Censors Trump and Campaign 262 Times, Biden Still at Zero

The censorship of President Donald Trump’s Twitter account and his campaign’s Twitter account continues to rage while the president challenges the vote count in court. Twitter has labeled Trump’s tweets 52 times since Nov. 16. Team Trump’s tweets have been labeled 16 times as well in the past week. Overall, Trump and his campaign have been censored 262 times since May 31, 2018. Meanwhile, Biden and his campaign have received no such censorship.  Some of the labeled tweets featured OAN Chief White House Correspondent Chanel Rion, newly-elected Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), clips from Fox News Channel hosts Tucker Carlson and Judge Jeanine Pirro, Breitbart, RNC National Spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington, and radio host Mark Levin. “You have used this power to run amok. You have used it to silence conservatives,” said Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a Nov. 17 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) also said to Dorsey, “You put up a page that says, ‘Voter fraud of any kind is exceedingly rare in the United States.’ That’s not linking to a broader conversation. That’s taking a disputed policy position.” Twitter announced in an Oct. 9 blog, “Tweets with labels are already de-amplified through our own recommendation systems and these new prompts will give individuals more context on labeled Tweets so they can make more informed decisions on whether or not they want to amplify them to their followers.” The company also stated that users who choose to retweet labeled tweets would receive a prompt “pointing them to credible information.” One Nov. 22 tweet from Trump stated, “In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers. Does that not really matter? Stopping Poll Watchers, voting for unsuspecting people, fake ballots and so much more. Such egregious conduct. We will win!” Trump’s tweet was labeled: “This claim about election fraud is disputed.” The censorship doesn’t stop with the president, however. Twitter proudly announced in a Nov. 12 update: “Approximately 300,000 Tweets have been labeled under our Civic Integrity Policy for content that was disputed and potentially misleading. These represent 0.2% of all US election-related Tweets sent during this time period.” Conservatives are under attack. Contact Twitter at (415) 222-9670 and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

Scarborough on Trump Vote Challenges: 'None Dare Call it Treason—But Maybe They Should'

They "shall suffer death." -- The first penalty mentioned in U.S. law for people guilty of treason. So, Joe Scarborough: what shall it be for President Trump and others you've suggested could be guilty of treason? Death, or one of the lesser penalties enumerated? Public executions, perhaps, on Inauguration Day? Wanna volunteer for the firing squad? On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough accused President Trump and his legal team, with the "silent approval" of Mitch McConnell, of attempting a "coup" to "overthrow the presidency" of Joe Biden....which hasn't been certified yet. Scarborough concluded his rant by melodramatically intoning: "None dare call it treason. But maybe -- maybe, they should." This was an odd use of lingo, since the book None Dare Call It Treason in the Sixties was about communist infiltration in the United States.  If this is a treasonous coup, it's the most law-abiding one in history. Scarborough admits that the actions of the Trump team are being done "in the light of day." And what do those actions consist of? Going into court and filing lawsuits. You can criticize that as hopeless or rude, but in any case, their actions are entirely within the constraints of the American legal system. Scarborough and others in the liberal media railed against President Trump for his "lock them up" calls for Hillary and other opponents. Scarborough, his mind twisted by hate, takes things an insane step further, accusing the sitting President of the United States of a crime punishable by death.  Scarborough's suggestion that President Trump and others could be guilty of treason was sponsored in part by Liberty Mutual, Ninja Foodi and Lincoln. Contact them at the Conservatives Fight Back links to let them know what you think of their sponsorship of Scarborough's insane accusation.   Here's the transcript.  MSNBC Morning Joe 11/23/20 6:03 am ET JOE SCARBOROUGH: The chaos is everywhere. It’s pure idiocy. But it’s far more dangerous than it may even appear on the surface. You know, let’s just bottom-line this before we start the show.  Donald Trump and the Republican Party, they’re now actively working to steal electoral votes, to steal electoral votes from Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, other states. And they’re going to do it by stripping millions of Americans of their right to vote. Specifically, tearing up their already-cast ballots from earlier this month.  I don’t have to tell you, this is deeply un-American. And it’s an un-American, unpatriotic attack that’s being performed right now by a handful of vile political operatives who are trying desperately every day to carry out a coup — look up the definition. A coup! That would overthrow the presidency of a democratically-elected leader who received over 300 electoral votes, and got the support of 80 million Americans.  That means they’re trying to overthrow a President-elect who received more votes than any candidate in the history of this constitutional republic. Think of that! A Republican president who's working with the silent approval of a Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, to stage a coup against the democratically-elected presidential candidate who is President-elect. And they’re doing it in the light of day. They’re doing it with the acquiescence of Republican senators and congressmen and congresswomen across the country.  None dare call it treason, but maybe — maybe, they should.

History and the Compromise of 1877: Fraud Will Define the Next Presidency Unless It Is Dealt with Today

Guest post by Kenny

On the evening of election day, November 7, 1876, the infamous civil war General, Daniel Sickles, circled by the Republican National Headquarters in DC after attending the theater, to check the election results. The headquarters were vacant. The election was all but over and both candidates assumed Samuel Tilden, the Democrat, had won. Tilden had secured 184 of the needed 185 electoral votes. The only states left to report – South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana, were certainly to go Democrat. Sickles, who was no stranger to brass knuckle politics, learning the ropes from the Tammany Hall machine in New York, concocted a plan on the spot. He telegraphed the Republican governors (they were Republican governors due to reconstruction) in SC, FL, and LA and told them never to concede and fight for Rutherford B. Hayes. He signed the telegraph not with his name but the name of the Republican National chairman. Two of the governors immediately sprang into action, the third was hesitant, suggesting he would if federal troops were provided. Sickles sent him troops. What happened over the next three months is the darkest chapter in our presidential election history. The Electoral college could not determine a winner on December 7, nor could Congress. On January 29, 1877, Congress created an Electoral Commission of 15 people. Five from the House, five from the Senate, and five from the Supreme Court. The panel consisted of 7 Republicans and 7 Democrats and one who was supposedly neutral. However, the neutral party resigned and was replaced by a Republican. After weeks of debate and discussion a backroom deal was cut. The leaders of the Democrats agreed to concede if the Republicans would end reconstruction. The Republicans accepted these terms, known as the Compromise of 1877, and Ruther B. Hayes became our 18th president by a vote of 8-7 from the Electoral Commission. The vote was conducted three days before the presidential inauguration on March 5, 1877. (Presidential terms started later prior to Eisenhower.)

Comparing this election, as well as 2000, to our current situation is insightful. In 1876 the fraud involved three states, three months, and the plan was devised on the spur of the moment. In 2000, the litigation involved one state, Florida, and basically only one county of that state: Miami-Dade. The 2000 process took 35 days. In this election year, the alleged fraud occurred in as many as 30 states. It was a well-orchestrated conspiracy that involved multiple fronts. It will take time to make this case properly.

Regardless of who you want to be president, the public must have confidence in its voting results. I would hope that the American public would never accept a proven fraudulent election result just so their candidate can “win.” If fraud is allowed in our elections, the will of the people will become irrelevant. Winners will be determined not by the will of the people but rather by the party that cheats the best.

If Biden becomes the next president through fraud and without the proper due process, he will have earned the nickname the Democrats gave Hayes: His Fraudulency.

Report: New York’s Democrat Attorney General Puts Pressure on Business Leaders to Coerce Trump to Concede; Talk of Withholding Donations to GOP Georgia Senate Races

Trump-hater New York state Attorney General Letitia James, working in coordination with her fellow Democrat state attorneys general, is putting pressure on business leaders to coerce President Trump into conceding the presidential election and starting the transition to Joe Biden, according to a report by the New York Times published Monday. The report says the Democrat attorneys general hatched a plan to have James organize a conference call with top business leaders in New York that took place on Friday in which the idea was discussed of withholding donations to the two Republican U.S. Senate candidates in the Georgia runoff elections until Trump concedes.


New York Attorney General Letitia James, file screen image.

Excerpt:

Concerned that President Trump’s refusal to accept the election results is hurting the country, more than 100 chief executives plan to ask the administration on Monday to immediately acknowledge Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the president-elect and begin the transition to a new administration.

…As a way of gaining leverage over the G.O.P., some of the executives have also discussed withholding campaign donations from the two Republican Senate candidates in Georgia unless party leaders agree to push for a presidential transition, according to four people who participated in a conference call Friday in which the notion was discussed. The two runoff elections in Georgia, which will take place in early January, will determine the balance of power in the United States Senate.

…The Friday evening executive call, which included a group of about a dozen business leaders, was preceded by a meeting of Democratic state attorneys general that took place on Thursday evening, in which participants discussed what they could do to ensure an orderly transition. In the wake of that, New York’s attorney general, Letitia James, was asked to approach business leaders in her jurisdiction about the possibility of pushing the stalled transition into motion.

“She said they asked her to reach out to the New York business community,” Kathryn Wylde, the chief executive of the Partnership for New York City, said of Ms. James. Ms. Wylde took part in a call the next evening with Ms. James and the executives, who were donors to both political parties.

Ms. Wylde said Ms. James told the group that the attorneys general “thought that the New York business community” would “have influence in convincing Republicans around the country that this should be over, that the transition should be acknowledged, and that it was a frightening proposition that this would remain unresolved.”

Ms. James, in a statement Sunday night, said, “This isn’t about partisan politics, but about protecting our democracy.”

“Without the rule of law and an orderly transfer of power, everything from commerce to health care delivery to national security is in peril, and our business leaders can see that as clearly as the rest of us,” she added.

Among the topics that came up on the call, according to participants, was the idea of withholding support from Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both Republicans, who are running for re-election in Georgia, until the presidential transition is underway.

President Trump is exercising his right to contest an election he believes was rigged against him and is pursuing his claims through legal channels and in the court of public opinion. Joe Biden has not been certified the winner of the election and until such time as he is officially declared the winner or Trump concedes, the Trump administration is under no obligation to proceed with a transition.

Corporate blackmail campaigns like this one coerced by Democrats using the power of the state is America’s future under a Biden-Harris administration.

CNN's Don Lemon: Can't Have Unity with GOP Opposed, 'Science,' 'Facts,' and 'Reality'

Is there anything funnier than the idea of CNN suggesting it might be time now to come together as Americans? On Friday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon chatted up CNN weekend host Fareed Zakaria to bash Republicans for daring to disagree with CNN. Lemon attacked Trump voters and Republicans as “people who don’t believe in science,” “facts,” and “reality” and Zakaria accused Senate Republicans of “vengeful obstructionism” for not complying with the Obama-Biden agenda. Lemon and Zakaria began the segment by reiterating CNN’s tired conspiracy that Trump is attempting a “coup," even though a review of just about any history book would inform Zakaria that Trump filing a few lawsuits isn't exactly rolling tanks into the streets.       LEMON: Would you call this a coup? An attempt on a coup? ZAKARIA: Oh, there's no question it's an attempt on a coup. As with everything Donald Trump does, the intention is as malign as one thinks. The execution is as incompetent as you can imagine. And so, it is likely to fail because it is not particularly well thought through. But there's no question he is trying to -- you know, you put it exactly right, he's trying to execute a coup. And you pointed out, people say it's unprecedented in American history. It's really pretty unprecedented around the world. Zakaria then laughably attacked Republicans for not accepting election results and for treating their “political opposition” as “enemies”: Something has happened to the Republican Party over the last 20 years. I think it began with Newt Gingrich. This kind of weird, dark conspiracy mongering. The, you know, the -- the believe -- the belief that politics is war, that your -- that your political opposition are enemies. That -- that has culminated in Trump. And you know, when you have people who basically don't care if American democracy goes down into the sewer as long as their guy wins. That fever has to break. I don't quite know what else does it. Sure, CNN never treated their political opposition with "weird, dark conspiracy-mongering." Who remembers the Mueller team of Democrats and Michael Avenatti?  Lemon launched into a vile attack upon those who disagree with him: You know that. We do -- we certainly should find ways to come together. But how do you come together and how do you compromise with people who don't believe that a fair election was won. People who don't believe in science. People who don't believe in facts. People who don't believe in reality. How -- how do you do that? Zakaria then accused Republicans in the Senate of “vengeful obstructionism” for fighting Barack Obama’s policy goals and for not supporting Biden’s. How dare anyone disagree with Biden’s radical policy goals! Lemon bemoaned that Biden has announced that he will not try to prosecute Trump as president. Zakaria then crazily suggested that “we are going to have to come up with an anti-Trump rescue-democracy legislative package” because of the alleged damage that Trump has done to American democracy: You know, he is doing everything to shred every one of these norms. This is the, you know, the fear I have, you know, take off of a George Orwell line, but if you want a picture of the future of American democracy, it is Donald Trump stomping on the face of American democracy forever, because people have seen that this can be done. And now what happens when the next president? We have -- we are going to have to come up with an anti-Trump dem -- rescue democracy legislative package at some point and take all these norms and make them laws. CNN would rather bash anyone who does not agree with Democrats than report the news. This Democratic propaganda was sponsored by Amazon and Lincoln. Let them know here if you think they should be sponsoring this content. Read the full November 20th transcript here: CNN Tonight 11/20/20 11:08 PM DON LEMON: So, listen, you've been watching this, what this president is doing to subvert this election is unprecedented and unpresidented, that's a word. Would you call this a coup? An attempt on a coup? FAREED ZAKARIA: Oh, there's no question it's an attempt on a coup. As with everything Donald Trump does, the intention is as malign as one thinks. The execution is as incompetent as you can imagine. And so, it is likely to fail because it is not particularly well thought through. But there's no question he is trying to -- you know, you put it exactly right, he's trying to execute a coup. And you pointed out, people say it's unprecedented in American history. It's really pretty unprecedented around the world. I mean, when Augusto Pinochet in Chile, the general who had run the government as a dictatorship for decades, when he lost an election, he left office. You know? When Indira Gandhi lost after had been declaring essentially martial law in India, when she lost an election, she left office. This is -- this is pretty out of bounds, really anywhere in the world. LEMON: I'm -- I’m reading something in your column, you write “Trump's actions today will have a large and lasting effect on this country's politics for decades, creating a cancer that will metastasize in gruesome ways.” What does that look like? ZAKARIA: Well, think about what he's doing. Even if let's assume that he fails. What he has done is he has planted the seed in the Republican Party that there is a conspiracy around the election of 2020, that it was stolen. If you believe the polls, somewhere between 60 and 80 percent of Republicans now believe this. Which means that they are going to be utterly uncompromising towards Biden. There's going to be no cooperation. The party is going to be in this vengeful, I mean, imagine a version McCarthyism, you know, the fervor around that times 10. And remember, Donald Trump is not just going to have ceded this conspiracy theory and then go away. He is still going to be around. He’s going to be the most powerful Republican. As Ron Brownstein was saying, this party has now become a personality cult. And he will continue to feed this conspiracy theory which warps the Republican Party. It shreds American democracy. But you know what? It's good for Donald Trump. It's good for his ratings. And that appears to be all he cares about. LEMON: I mean, you say the number of people who believe in it in the Republican Party. It's just -- it's mind-boggling. So, if  -- if there's a real fear that there could be huge consequences or a large amount of people believing the lie that 2020 was stolen, and everything that you just said, then Fareed, what’s the solution here then? Is that -- go on, I -- I’ll ask you another question. What's the solution? ZAKARIA: The only solution we can really hope for is that the fever breaks at some point. Something has happened to the Republican Party over the last 20 years. I think it began with Newt Gingrich. This kind of weird, dark conspiracy mongering. The, you know, the -- the believe -- the belief that politics is war, that your -- that your political opposition are enemies. That -- that has culminated in Trump. And you know, when you have people who basically don't care if American democracy goes down into the sewer as long as their guy wins. That fever has to break. I don't quite know what else does it. LEMON: Okay then, that was a perfect segue into to what I want to ask you about, the second follow-up to the question. So, then how do you -- because everybody says, you know, we got to come together and it’s true. You know that. We do -- we certainly should find ways to come together. But how do you come together and how do you compromise with people who don't believe that a fair election was won. People who don't believe in science. People who don't believe in facts. People who don't believe in reality. How -- how do you do that? ZAKARIA: Look, Biden is the perfect guy to try this. Because what I think Biden's philosophy of government is going to be, let's -- let’s not have an existential debate over everything. Can we agree that people deserve relief for COVID? Can we agree that you know, we could do a better job with infrastructure in America? Can we agree that, you know, on certain areas of immigration reform? And he will try piece meal to get things done. But again, the test is going to be the Republicans. It's really important to not to keep saying we all need to get together. This is not an equal-side thing. Barack Obama tried to get together. He made a series of gestures toward the Republican. He appointed Bush's defense secretary. He appointed a Republican -- he offered the job commerce secretary to a Republican, he took Mitt Romney's plan for health care and made it his own. None of it worked. He didn't get one vote from the House Republicans. LEMON: I'm so glad you're saying this. Go on. ZAKARIA: For the stimulus, he did not get one vote for health care. We've seen this movie before. LEMON: Yeah. ZAKARIA: So I think we know what Biden would like to do. I pretty much bet that is what he will try to do. The question is, does Mitt Romney believe that the politics of vengeful obstructionism is what -- is what keeps him in power, or does he believe that at some point you kind of have to do something for the country? LEMON: Okay, good, I'm glad you said that because I've been saying  the same thing. Barack Obama tried all of this and nothing happened. It didn't work. They, you know, Mitch McConnell said we're going to make him a one-term president. No matter how much he reached across the aisle, they didn't want to work with him. Right? And then they blamed him for the division in the country. And the country’s never been more divided. ZAKARIA: Exactly. That's right. LEMON: And it was them that did the division. ZAKARIA: Exactly. Right. LEMON: So why would Joe Biden do the same thing? And on another note, Joe Biden has said, I don't think that you know, the prosecution of -- of Donald Trump, if he's done anything wrong, right, if it comes to that, that it is good for the country and he doesn't believe it. When at this moment, Joe Biden keeps saying that, but Donald Trump keeps trying to subvert the will of the people. He keeps breaking rules. He is -- I don't know if he's breaking any laws, so then why would he say this guy shouldn't be prosecuted, or shouldn't be investigated if he has done something wrong? And why should he go on down the same path that did not work for the person he was the vice president with? ZAKARIA: Because, Don, the problem is the Democrats won't have a majority in the Senate. It's -- it’s that simple. The only way you are going to get something done is if you can get some Republicans to come along with you. And at the end of the day, the -- the reality is in this country, thank God, the President doesn't personally decide who gets prosecuted. The -- the tragedy of what we are witnessing with Donald Trump is we are realizing that American democracy is built on a lot of norms, not laws. There are lot of weird things in the system. For example, we have this strange almost three-month transition when presidents can do, you know, the -- the guy who loses can do really crazy stuff. It -- it hasn't happened because presidents had abided by a norm that says when they -- after the election, and before the inauguration, they generally tried to smooth things out. They try to keep things stable. And they try to assist in the transition. Donald Trump reminds us that all of these things are norms. You know, he is doing everything to shred every one of these norms. This is the, you know, the fear I have, you know, take off of a George Orwell line, but if you want a picture of the future of American democracy, it is Donald Trump stumping on the face of American democracy forever because people have seen that this can be done. And now what happens when the next president? We have -- we are going to have to come up with an anti-Trump dem -- rescue democracy legislative package at some point and take all these norms and make them laws. You know, if you want to run for president, you have to release your tax returns. You have to put your business in a blind trust. When you lose an election there are certain things you can't do as president. You know, we are going to have to institutionalize what has been norms, good behavior, you know -- LEMON: Yeah. ZAKARIA: -- matters of good judgment and good manners. Because Donald Trump reminds us that all -- he has -- he has spotlighted one of the great weaknesses of American democracy -- LEMON: Yeah. ZAKARIA: -- which is that we expect people of goodwill to occupy high offices and Donald Trump is not that man. LEMON: And he's exploited every single loophole in the system.

Big Tech to Surrender POTUS Accounts to Biden Jan 20

Big Tech has declared that Democratic nominee Joe Biden will receive the official verified presidential accounts from Twitter and Facebook/Instagram in late January, despite the fact that several states are still contested. “Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc will transfer control of the @POTUS account to the Joe Biden administration on Jan. 20, the social media companies said on Saturday,” Reuters reported Nov. 21. The @POTUS accounts on both Facebook and Twitter are distinct from President Donald Trump’s @realDonaldTrump Twitter account and the @DonaldTrump Facebook page that Donald Trump has used to write the majority of his most popular posts. Twitter reportedly informed Reuters this past weekend that the company is “actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021.” The same spokesperson added that this action is being taken “As we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is being done in close consultation with the National Archives and Records.” Mashable explained that the Trump administration’s tweets will be around to stay in one form or another, noting that “tweets from Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, [F]irst [L]ady Melania, second lady Karen Pence, the press secretary, and other White House officials will still be viewable, but on newly archived pages.” The same article summarized: “Those new handles haven't been announced yet, but will likely follow past naming conventions — so Trump's @POTUS account will likely become @POTUS45.” The Washington Post warned that even if Trump loses the presidency, he will still remain a powerful national influence online: “But should Democrat Joe Biden’s apparent electoral edge withstand legal challenge, Trump would leave office with a singularly powerful online megaphone — at least 88 million followers on Twitter, 31 million on Facebook and 23 million on Instagram — that will give him a unique ability to communicate his thoughts to legions of supporters accustomed to hearing from him more than three-dozen times a day.” Twitter chomping at the bit to coronate Biden should come as no surprise after it did all-but pull the voting machine levers to help him prior to the election. Twitter was one of the Big Tech companies that made headlines for censoring what should have been a devastating New York Post article. The shocking revelation released by the Post on Oct. 14 revealed purported emails from Biden’s son Hunter and reportedly exposed the alleged scandalous dealings of both father and son in the Russia-bordering state of Ukraine. Twitter responded by disabling the link to the story, claiming: “Warning: this link may be unsafe.” Twitter then censored the Post, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, the Trump Campaign, and even the House Judiciary (a part of the United States government) for sharing the story. Twitter later reversed course after backlash and unblocked the link. It also locked the Post out of its account for no less than 17 days. Twitter finally unlocked the Post’s account on Oct. 30. Conservatives are under attack. Contact Twitter’s and Facebook's leadership by tweeting at the official @Twitter account  and contact Facebook headquarters at 1-650-308- 7300 or 1-650-543-4800  demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

New Jersey Democrat Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. filed bar complaints against lead Trump campaign elections attorney Rudy Giuliani and twenty-two other Trump campaign lawyers in several states where President Trump is contesting the results of the November 3 presidential election. Pascrell is calling for the disbarment of the attorneys for filing cases on behalf of Trump to “overturn the election and demolish democracy” in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, New York and Pennsylvania. The other attorneys targeted in addition to Giuliani are local attorneys in the respective states. Giuliani is a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and former two-term mayor of New York City.

Press release by Pascrell:

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today filed letters with the legal bar authorities in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, New York, and Pennsylvania, seeking the disbarment of Rudolph Giuliani and 22 other lawyers representing Donald Trump in his attempts to overturn the election and demolish democracy. This was first announced by @PascrellForNJ on Twitter.

“We live together in extraordinary and increasingly dangerous national circumstances. At present, our sitting President has refused to accept the outcome of our national election and is attacking the integrity of our electoral system to keep himself in power. The pattern of behavior by these individuals to effectuate Mr. Trump’s sinister arson is a danger not just to our legal system but is also unprecedented in our national life. In carrying out that perversion, they have clearly violated the [] Rules of Professional Conduct they swore to uphold and should face the severest sanction your body can mete out: revocation of their law licensures,” Pascrell writes the legal disciplinary authorities in five states.

Copies of Congressman Pascrell’s letters to the bar disciplinary authorities of Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, New York, and Pennsylvania, are available in the attached hyperlinks.

The text of Pascrell’s letter to the Disciplinary Board of Pennsylvania is provided below.

November 20, 2020

The Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

District I 1601 Market Street, Suite 3320 Philadelphia, PA 19103

District II 820 Adams Avenue, Suite 170 Trooper, PA 19403

District III 601 Commonwealth Avenue Suite 5800, P.O. Box 62675 Harrisburg, PA 17106-2675

District IV 437 Grant Street, Suite 1300 Pittsburgh, PA 15219

To Whom It May Concern:

I write you today to file a complaint against Marc A. Scaringi (Pennsylvania Bar No. 88346) and Brian C. Caffrey (Bar No. 42667) of the law firm Scaringi Law (2000 Linglestown Road, Suite 106, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 17110); Ronald L. Hicks, Jr. (Bar No. 49520) and Carolyn B. McGee (Bar No. 207715) of the law firm Porter Wright (6 PPG Place, 3d Floor, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222); Linda A. Kerns (Pennsylvania Bar No. 84495) of the law offices of Linda A. Kerns, LLC (1420 Locust Street, Suite 200, Philadelphia Pennsylvania); Joseph Pizzo (Bar No. 63268) and Kenneth Ferris (Bar No. 92335) of the law firm Joseph Pizzo and Associates, LLC (7 Neshaminy Interplex Suite 200 Trevose, Pennsylvania 19053); and Joseph Goldstein (Bar No. 201627) and Britain Henry (Bar No. 314279) of the law firm Goldstein Law Partners, LLC (11 Church Road, Hatfield Pennsylvania 19440). In their capacity as attorneys representing the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, these individuals have filed frivolous lawsuits and used your state’s courts to assault public confidence in our nation’s electoral system, violating the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct. Therefore, I request your office commence an immediate investigation of their actions and consider sanctions for their conduct up to and including revocation of their licenses to practice law in your jurisdiction.

As of today, President-elect Joe Biden has won the commonwealth of Pennsylvania by 81,487 votes, or approximately 1.18 percent,[i] an outcome there is virtually no chance of reversing by a recount. Despite the difficult circumstances of this pandemic, Pennsylvania’s administration of the election was strong and there is no evidence of systematic malfeasance or fraud. Nevertheless, these individuals have filed absurd lawsuits seeking to overturn the will of Pennsylvania’s voters and caused irreversible damage to public trust in the fair administration of our elections.

The Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct necessarily govern the actions of your licensed attorneys. Mr. Scaringi, Mr. Caffrey, Mr. Hicks, Ms. McGee, Ms. Kerns, Mr. Pizzo, Mr. Ferris, Mr. Goldstein, and Mr. Henry may have violated Rule of Professional Conduct 3.1 which requires that “[a] lawyer shall not bring or defend a proceeding, or assert or controvert an issue therein, unless there is a basis in law and fact for doing so that is not frivolous, which includes a good faith argument for an extension, modification or reversal of existing law.”[ii] These individuals may have also violated Rule 8.4(b) which posits that “[i]t is professional misconduct for a lawyer to…engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation.”[iii]

We live together in extraordinary and increasingly dangerous national circumstances. At present, our sitting President has refused to accept the outcome of our national election and is attacking the integrity of our electoral system to keep himself in power. The pattern of behavior by these individuals to effectuate Mr. Trump’s sinister arson is a danger not just to our legal system but is also unprecedented in our national life. In carrying out that perversion, they have clearly violated the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct they swore to uphold and should face the severest sanction your body can mete out: revocation of their law licensures. The holding of a law license is a sacred responsibility. You have an opportunity here to make a powerful statement in support of our democracy and deter future charlatans and miscreants from warping our legal and political systems for their own profit. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Bill Pascrell, Jr.
United States Congressman

IT’S OFFICIAL: President Trump Is the Most Popular Sitting President in US History – He Set Record for Most Votes for a President and Most Votes Ever for a Republican …And That’s With Fraud

The Democrats, the Deep State and their foreign accomplices, should have learned an important lesson, if you are going to try and steal an election, choose a President other than the most popular President in history.

We don’t really know at this time how many votes President Trump won in this election.  We do know more fraud occurred in this election than any modern election in history.  But based on the current totals for President Trump, which are likely understated in the millions, this election was the greatest win for any sitting President ever.

In 2016 President Trump won more votes than any Republican in History with 62.2 million votes.  This year the President broke his record for most votes for any Republican in history.

Year Candidate Total Votes
2000 Gore 50,996,039
2000 Bush 50,456,141
2004 Kerry 59,028,109
2004 Bush 62,028,285
2008 Obama 69,491,817
2008 McCain 59,944,939
2012 Obama 65,915,795
2012 Romney 60,933,500
2016 Clinton 64,064,658
2016 Trump 62,186,413
2020 Biden 78,897,830
2020 Trump 73,221,080

President Trump also received more votes than any sitting President ever.

The fact that the Democrats and their Deep State friends then attempted to steal this election from President Trump would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious.

While Obama went backwards in votes in his second election while enjoying a massive tail wind from the corrupt media, President Trump gained millions of votes over his record setting win in 2016 despite tremendous headwinds from the corrupt media.

The keystone crooks tried to unseat President Trump again.  They again picked the wrong guy to be messing with.
