Election Whores of the Democrat Party

By: Linda Goudsmit | pundicity

Election integrity and freedom of speech are the two most basic requirements for a democracy, a government by the people, exercised directly or through elected representatives. The 2020 United States presidential election breached them both. Unprecedented in US election history, Democrat-run cities in battleground states suspended vote counting, and then mysteriously resumed with drastically changed trajectories of the vote count. Americans went to sleep certain that President Donald Trump had been reelected. When they woke up, Joe Biden had mysteriously surged ahead to “win” the election. Americans remain shocked, confused, and angry. What happened??

Investigative journalist Dinesh D’Souza answers that question with irrefutable proof the election was stolen from we the people in his stunning new documentary film 2000 Mules. The film’s summary:

Drawing on research provided by the election integrity group True the Vote, 2000 Mules offers two types of evidence: geotracking and video. The geotracking evidence, based on a database of 10 trillion cell phone pings, exposes an elaborate network of paid professional operatives called mules delivering fraudulent and illegal votes to mail-in drop boxes in the five key states where the election was decided. Video evidence, obtained from official surveillance cameras installed by the states themselves, confirms the geotracking evidence.

Amazon’s 2000 Mules book review states:

THE FIX WAS IN

The 2020 presidential election was rife with fraud orchestrated by the Democratic Party. That’s not just an accusation; it’s now, thanks to bestselling author and investigative journalist Dinesh D’Souza, an established fact. With eyewitness testimony and the pinpoint precision and analytic sophistication of the forensic technique of geotracking, D’Souza demonstrates how an already corrupt system put in place by Democratic Party hacks and “community organizers” was taken over and supercharged by national-level operatives to produce massive voter fraud.

The key figure: the mule. A paid cut-out. A criminal deliveryman. The stooge found at the intersection where election cheating and double-dealing hit the road. The mule is the crook who physically takes a sack of ballots provided by shady NGOs and political machines—the “community activist organizations” made famous by former President Obama, for instance—and, like some nefarious Johnny Appleseed, dumps those ballots in collection boxes throughout a voting district. Do enough of this, and you have planted voter fraud across a nation.

Documentary filmmaker extraordinaire and bestselling author of America, Death of a Nation, and United States of Socialism, Dinesh D’Souza exposes powerful evidence of the colossal voting racketeering that you were told didn’t exist. Here you will find the receipts—the transcripts and confirmatory details—for the facts establishing 2020 election fraud presented in D’Souza’s major motion picture documentary, 2000 Mules. D’Souza makes a powerful argument that 2020 was a stolen election. More important, D’Souza proves it.

Dark Money – Not the Grassroots – Is Behind the Convention of States Organizations

By: Judi Caler

Patriots are rightly concerned that Mark Meckler, lobbyist and President of the Convention of States organizations (COS), has spent tens of millions of dollars spreading misinformation and cajoling State Legislatures into passing applications asking Congress to call a convention under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Thirty-four States are needed to pass such applications to trigger a constitutional convention, where a new Constitution would likely be proposed, along with an easier mode of ratification. So, who is behind COS?

Meckler tells state legislators that COS is a grassroots movement, funded by thousands of ordinary citizens. In fact, since December, 2017, the COS homepage boasted:

WHO’S BEHIND THIS THING?

The American people. We thought you’d never ask! The Convention of States Project is first and foremost a movement of grassroots citizens who are fed up with business as usual in D.C. We’re funded by thousands of everyday patriots who have committed their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to protecting liberty for future generations.

But Andy Schlafly, attorney and son of conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, testified at a Pennsylvania hearing on Oct. 22, 2019 against COS’s Article V convention application (@ 11:55):

Schlafly: “…[W]ho’s funding them? Where’s the money coming from? There’s a lot of money behind this. And they’re not disclosing where the money behind this push to change the Constitution is coming from. That should scare everybody in this room. Who are these people who are pushing to rewrite the Constitution? I suspect some of them are globalists, but ask them…it’s not disclosed. And I’m certainly not in favor of allowing billionaires who don’t disclose their identity…[or] their real agenda…to rewrite our Constitution. That’s not a good idea.”

Meckler, at the same hearing, feigning outrage, fumed (@ 46:11):

Meckler: “…[W]ho’s funding this? Any of you at any time are welcome to visit our very fancy corporate offices in my house in Texas. In my personal home office off the kitchen, where all the billionaires apparently come visit me. It’s an outrage and a slander. And this kind of slanderous politics takes this discussion to some place it should not go, which is frankly, it’s just slander, and innuendo. It’s gutter politics. And I don’t believe in it…

“I can tell you who my donors are. See, because the person that raises the money for…this organization is my wife of 26 years who works in the office next to mine, who has raised money from over 80,000 individual grassroots patriots all over this country. So, if those are the millionaires and billionaires that Mr. Schlafly is afraid of, well, he might want to talk to the grandmas who send me checks and say, ‘it’s five bucks a month out of my fixed income, and I’m sorry I can’t afford any more.’ Again, an outrageous slander on the tens of thousands of people supporting this movement.”

Notice that in one fell swoop, Meckler masterfully deflects attention from the source of his funding, while playing the victim and accusing his opponents of slander.

So, what’s the truth? Let’s go straight to the tax-exempt returns that Meckler is required to file with the IRS every year. These returns, also known as 990s, are public information and filed by all nonprofits.

The most recent 990s available for Meckler’s organizations are for the years 2020, 2019, and 2018. The Meckler organizations appear to include Convention of States Action (COSA); Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG); Citizens for Self-Governance Action (CSG Action); and Defending Liberty, Inc. (DLI). Each year, Meckler filed a 990 return for each entity, as required by law, and signed them under penalty of perjury.

Nonprofits are not required to disclose the identity of their contributors—so all contributors are anonymous, unless the organization chooses to disclose them. That’s why the accompanying Schedule B doesn’t include the names & addresses of the donors—only the total amount of all donations totaling $5,000 or more from each numbered donor during the year. Still, those figures are revealing.

Donations of $5,000 or more to each entity are summarized by year on the accompanying Chart. The source documentation for figures on the Chart can be found mostly on Schedule B of the linked 990s.

Here’s the short version:

Between 2018 and 2020, contributions ranging from $5,000 to $2,000,000 per donor, to the four entities totaled $16,751,011, or 63% of the $26.7 million in contributions reported on Meckler’s combined 990s for the 3-year period. And that $16.7 million was from at most 168 unique anonymous persons; thus, their average contribution was almost $100,000 [$16,751,011 ÷ 168 = $99,708].

But likely, Meckler has fewer than 168 major donors, as repeat donors over the 3-year period are to be expected. So, depending upon how many major donors gave in one, two, or three years and/or gave to multiple Meckler entities, the average donation per major donor over the three-year period amounts to at least $99,708, and may be more than $200,000 or $300,000! So, COS isn’t a grassroots organization funded from the bottom up by small donors. Schedule B provides proof that COS’s agenda to replace our Constitution is coming mostly from major donors.

Meckler frequently sends out emails asking for money, to his list of unsuspecting patriots. Unsurprisingly, most of his requests are accompanied by an offer from a “generous donor” to match each contribution. The patriots on Meckler’s email list probably have no idea that Meckler has been receiving almost two-thirds of his contributions from multi-millionaires and/or billionaires while drawing salaries for himself and his wife totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

We can only conclude that Meckler is disingenuous when he ridicules the suggestion that his organizations are funded by undisclosed multi-millionaires and billionaires. And while his organizations may well receive some small donations, he denies that the bulk of his money comes from the superrich. And all the while, he yells “slander” with a straight face, and shamelessly conjures up Grandma wishing she could give him more of her paltry income, when asked about the millions in dark money he’s amassing!

We know why the liquor, drug, and tobacco industries invest millions in lobbyists to influence state legislation. But why would major donors invest millions in COS to bring about a convention to rewrite the U.S. Constitution?

The total amount of money spent over the years by the Meckler organizations to trigger a constitutional convention is astonishing.  Meckler needs to be confronted everywhere he goes by opponents, supporters, & legislators alike—and asked why he is hiding the fact that he’s working for the superrich.  We have a right to know; it’s our Constitution they’re after!  You can download the 990 forms from the accompanying Chart and copy Schedule B, so you’ll have ammo to push back with, the next time Meckler plays the Grandma card.

Taxpayers Fleeced by The American Rescue Plan

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

So, when does the Biden administration demand a clawback of $122 billion? Remember too that not a single Republican voted for the American Rescue Plan….and where is Pelosi or Schumer on this? Rhetorical….. of course. Will Secretary Cardona be impeached? Nah…

Blue states across the country are using billions of taxpayer dollars from President Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package to push core tenets of critical race theory (CRT) in public schools. source

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, which the Democrats passed in March 2021 without any Republican support, was billed by the Democratic Party as a necessity for reopening schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the law provided over $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER), which helped multiple states implement “implicit bias” and “anti-racism” training, among other programs, according to research from One Nation shared with and verified by Fox News Digital.

In February 2021, before the legislation passed, the White House told FOX Business that ESSER funding would provide schools “with the resources they need to safely reopen and fully serve their students.”

Democrats like Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., described the passing of ARP as a matter of life and death.

“This is one moment in which it’s very clear that public policy is quite literally a matter of life and death,” Warnock said during a February 2021 news conference with Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding that the bill would provide “more than $4 billion to the state of Georgia’s K through 12 schools to ensure students, teachers, and staff stay safe and healthy, and to address learning loss.”

Soon after Biden signed the bill into law on March 11, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education declared that ESSER would be used to “implement the CDC’s recommended prevention and mitigation strategies for K-12 schools, meet student and educators’ social, emotional, and mental health needs, invest in strategies to address lost instructional time, and boldly address inequities exacerbated by the pandemic.”

“My priority right now is to safely reopen as many schools right now, as quickly as possible,” Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said after the bill passed.

In August 2021, the U.S. Department of Education published a report offering strategies for how states should use ARP funds to support families and reengage students for the return of in-person learning.

Dead Russian Oligarchs and those Still Alive

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Many mysterious deaths of Russian oligarchs have gained the attention of those following the wealth of Russians and Putin…

In part from Newsweek:

Two Russian oligarchs were found dead this week alongside their family in luxurious homes in Russia and Spain, with the two cases discovered within 24 hours of each other.

Both deaths are believed by police to be cases of murder-suicide, but the evidence supporting these theories is muddled by the fact that the events happened so close together, with the two oligarchs the last of several who have been found to have died by suicide since the beginning of the year.

The longer list includes Sergey Protosenya, Vladislav Avaev, Vasily Melnikov, Mikhail Watford, Alexander Tyulyakov, and Leonid Shulman. Click here to read their resumes and reported death details.

There are many many more oligarchs that are for sure getting their affairs in order meaning hiding their assets and hiding themselves or are simply laundering their reputations…from whom and what is quite crazy too. They are paying for higher security of themselves and their families and their assets while some are making donations to Western entities to save face as well as to keep off of sanctions lists by many governments.

In part, an initial database of oligarchic donations to more than 200 of the most prestigious nonprofits in the U.S. — from museums to universities to think tanks. Recipients included some of the country’s foremost institutions, such as Harvard University, the Brookings Institution, and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. U.S. nonprofits even accepted funds from the richest oligarchs in Russia. Vladimir Potanin, considered Russia’s wealthiest oligarch, successfully donated to multiple significant U.S. nonprofits, including the Kennedy Center and Guggenheim Museum. And he didn’t stop at donations: Potanin managed to obtain seats on the Guggenheim’s board of trustees and the global advisory board of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank. All of this transpired despite Potanin’s “close” relationship with Putin and the fact that, as author David Hoffman describes in his groundbreaking 2011 book, The Oligarchs, Potanin acted as the “ringleader” for the oligarchs as they seized assets and political power in the mid-1990s. Read more here.

Musk Faces Hard Forces to Complete the Purchase of Twitter

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

The actual closing date of the sale to Elon Musk is October 24, 2022. If there are issues with the sale and an exit attempt for either side, each party could be liable for a $1 billion penalty. Could that happen? The answer is yes for various reasons. Details are here.

The Left cannot stand free speech or what they think is a monopoly. Former President Obama and the Biden White House have issued statements recently giving clues they are interested in continued censorship under the guise of damage to information and discourse. Very little attention was paid to a DHS bulletin from February of 2022 which includes in part:

The Department of Homeland Security’s latest terrorism threat bulletin includes a warning against “the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”

The bulletin, issued Monday and in effect until at least June 7, blamed an “online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis-, dis- and mal-information introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.

“These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence,” DHS went on. Source

The Biden Credibility Gap is Growing

By: Roger Aronoff | CCNS

WASHINGTON, DC – SEPTEMBER 24: U.S. President Joe Biden delivers remarks on his administration’s COVID-19 response and vaccination program from the State Dining Room of the White House on September 24, 2021 in Washington, DC. President Biden announced that Americans 65 and older and frontline workers who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine over six months ago will be eligible for booster shots. (Photo by Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images)

How much is the Biden credibility gap hindering and prolonging the war Russia started when it invaded Ukraine? I would argue that it is having a huge impact. While paying lip service to having united the West to support Ukraine in its war with Russia, it is clear that the White House is once again leading from behind. Between the U.S. and the EU, Russia has sold them more than $30 billion worth of oil and gas since the start of the war in February, while their combined military aid to Ukraine is less than $5 billion. If the U.S. was still energy independent and if the EU wasn’t divided over the issue, perhaps the West would stop funding Putin’s brutal, unconscionable war and provide Ukraine with the weapons and hardware it says it needs. Ukraine has shown that it can and will fight Russia on its own without needing NATO troops to engage.

The gaslighting never ends

President Biden and his top administration officials and spokesmen said clearly and often leading up to the war that the West, led by the U.S., was imposing sanctions on Russia to deter an invasion of Ukraine. Yet a month to the day after Russia invaded Ukraine, Biden said with a sense of certainty and indignation that sanctions “never deter” military aggression. This was just one of several statements that left his staffers and cabinet officials trying to figure out how to explain Joe’s comments. Did he misspeak? Is he senile? Does he believe that this didn’t represent a change of positions?

Then there were the other gaffes, inconsistencies, and lies. Were our troops in Poland soon to go into Ukraine, as Biden indicated? Must Putin somehow be removed from power? Would the U.S. respond “in-kind” if Russia uses chemical weapons? Are we training Ukrainian military forces in Poland with our military? In each case, the White House walked backed these statements, or “clarified” them as they prefer to call it. But when asked, Biden assured the country that “I’m not walking anything back.”

On top of that, the U.S. greenlighted Poland to send fighter jets to Ukraine, but when Poland tossed the issue in our lap by offering to give them away for free and send them to Germany to then be sent to Ukraine by the U.S. or NATO, Biden and company said no, it wasn’t necessary.

While this gaslighting has been going on, the Biden administration has been trying desperately to re-enter the disastrous Iran nuclear deal being negotiated between Russia and Iran directly, with us on the sideline. And all of it is whitewashed, covered up, and distorted by a corrupt news media.

The credibility gap also stems from lies about what the president knew and his involvement with his son Hunter’s business dealings with China, Ukraine, and Russia, and how the media were complicit in covering up the corruption exposed on Hunter’s laptop. From claims about the border being secure, to inflation being Putin’s fault, and the economy being great, Joe Biden’s credibility gap is growing at a rapid pace.

Power and Powerlessness: Globalism’s War on Children

By: Linda Goudsmit | pundicity

Globalism is a replacement ideology that seeks to replace the current Westphalian system of independent sovereign nations with one world planetary governance. One world government often referred to as the Great Reset and the New World Order is a totalitarian managerial state that breaches every conceivable boundary. The singularity imagined by globalist technocrats fuses humanity into one nation, one race, one language, one culture, one religion, one digital currency, one educational curriculum, and one gender.

Children are born completely powerless. The primary responsibility of parents is to protect the child and ensure his survival. In the 21st century, parents must protect their children from the grasping managers of the globalist managerial state. Globalism’s war on the nation-state is a war on children because children are the foundation and future of every society on earth. Society will never be safe until the children are safe.

Human beings derive a sense of self from the identities they acquire. Being a child, an adolescent, an adult, a man, a woman, a father, a mother, a child, a grandmother, a grandfather, an American, an Italian, a Christian, a Jew, and on and on, all contribute to the sense of selfness of the individual. A human being’s identity is the infrastructure that supports that individual’s sense of selfness and existence in the world. The most primary identity for human beings is their sexual identity. In every language, in every society anywhere in the world, the first exclamation when a child is born is, “It’s a boy!” “It’s a girl!”

Globalism’s asymmetric war on children is psychological warfare and an information war that seeks to replace parental authority with the authority of the state. The strategic objective is to turn children into global citizens conditioned for life in the totalitarian, planetary managerial state. Using social engineering to blur the boundaries between state and parent combatants, the globalist army has recruited unsuspecting parents to become participants in its insidious war on their children. This is how it works.
