SMARTMATIC: Vote Machine Company Threatens Legal Action Against Conservative Media

Demands retractions from Fox News, Newsmax, OAN for spreading "disinformation"

Voting Machine company Smartmatic has delivered legal notices to three conservative news networks, demanding retractions of claims that the company was involved in rigging the election in favor of Joe Biden.

According to reports, Smartmatic has issued legal notices to Fox News, OAN and Newsmax, accusing the networks of a “campaign [that] was designed to defame Smartmatic and undermine a legitimately conducted elections.”

The company is said to have accused Fox News of having “embarked on a disinformation campaign against Smartmatic,” by allowing Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell to make claims of vote fraud.

“Over the course of the campaign, Fox News published and republished dozens of false and misleading statements regarding Smartmatic,” the notice is said to read.

The legal notice also reportedly claims there is “no evidence or credible source to support” the vote rigging claims, and that anyone “would have easily discovered the falsity of the statements and implications being made about Smartmatic by performing even a modicum of investigation.”

The legal notice is also said to have specifically named Fox News hosts Lou Dobbs, Jesse Watters, and Maria Bartiromo, and indicates that Smartmatic could pursue legal action against them personally:

“Smartmatic demands a full and complete retraction of all false and defamatory statements reports published by Fox News. This retraction must be done with the same intensity and level of coverage that you used to defame the company in the first place,” the legal notice also reportedly states.

“This campaign is an attack on election systems and election workers in an effort to depress confidence in future elections and potentially counter the will of the voters, not just here, but in democracies around the world,” Smartmatic chief executive Antonio Mugica said in a statement.

At time of writing, only Newsmax has responded to the allegations, issuing a statement that notes “As any major media outlet, we provide a forum for public concerns and discussion. In the past we have welcomed Smartmatic and its representatives to counter such claims they believe to be inaccurate and will continue to do so.”


Lou Dobbs gives fiery reaction to Attorney General Barr’s resignation~DOJ’s Election Crimes Director Resigns After Barr

Don Jr accuses head of DOJ election crimes unit of being 'Deep State' after he resigns in protest over Bill Barr authorizing prosecutors to pursue 'substantial allegations' of voter fraud despite little evidence

  • William Barr sent a memo to allow federal prosecutors to investigate 'substantial allegations' of voter fraud 
  • Within hours Richard Pilger, Justice Department official who oversees investigations of voter fraud, resigned
  • Trump's son, Don Jr, was quick to criticize Pilger online and accused him of being a member of the Deep State
  • The president has vowed to fight the expected electoral defeat in the courts 


Richard Pilger, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Director of the Election Crimes Branch, has resigned following Attorney General William Barr's authorization earlier today for federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Pilger, whose office oversees investigations into voter fraud, reportedly tendered his resignation within hours of Barr's authorization, The New York Times reported. "Having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications... I must regretfully resign from my role as Director of the Election Crimes Branch," Pilger wrote in his resignation. He will continue working in the DOJ as a line prosecutor in the Public Integrity section prosecuting corruption cases.The re-election campaign of Republican President Donald Trump and various Republican political leaders on the federal and state level have alleged that fraudulent ballots swung the contentious presidential race into the favor of Trump's opponent, Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. These allegations have yet to be substantiated,Barr's authorization ignored a decades-old DOJ policy to keep law enforcement separate from committing actions that could affect an election's outcome, according to the Times. Barr sought to have investigators complete their work before each state certifies its final election results and ballot counts throughout November and December. "Public knowledge of a criminal investigation could impact the adjudication of election litigation and contests in state courts. Accordingly, it is the general policy of the department not to conduct overt investigations," says the Justice Department's longstanding election guidelines for prosecutors.Last month, Barr lifted a DOJ prohibition on election fraud investigations occurring in the months before a national election, making it so that prosecutors could request permission to investigate directly from Barr instead of from a career prosecutor in the DOJ's Criminal Division.

Rogue ATF Agents are Cracking Down on Legal Guns in Anticipation of Biden Administration

Honest citizens should enjoy the right to assemble their own firearms for lawful purposes, and they should be able to do so without being terrorized by their government.” — GOA's Erich Pratt, AmmoLand, December 11, 2020.

GOA and other pro-2A groups are suing the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

USA – -( On Thursday, federal agents raided the headquarters of Polymer80, one of the largest manufacturers of homemade firearm accessories.

For years, Polymer80 has been producing “80% complete” lower receivers which the ATF determined to be incomplete and non-regulatable by the ATF as firearms. These receivers require holes to be drilled and surfaces filed before they become an actual, usable receiver, hence the term 80% receiver.

You might have heard an anti-gunner refer to a completed homemade firearm as a “ghost gun” before.

According to the ATF in numerous letters to Polymer80, their 80% receivers did not require a manufacturer's license, the unconstitutional Pittman-Robertson tax, a serial number, or a NICS check before purchase.

Anti-gunners have been advocating for a ban on homemade firearms for years, even recently appealing to the Trump Administration.

Once again, the ATF appears to be reversing its longstanding interpretive guidance and is arbitrarily redefining a crucial term to enact a gun ban.

ATF is Expanding its Crackdown

AmmoLand News broke the news yesterday that ATF is raiding more companies than just Polymer80:

The ATF did raid or show up at other companies that sell other kits that include 80% part kits, barrels, and slides that are not Polymer80. AmmoLand News sources inside the ATF say that the agency is now considering 80% kits with all the parts needed to finish a pistol as a firearm. None of the companies had any warning on the change to ATF’s regulations before actual agents showed up making attempts to retrieve customer information.

Apparently, the ATF now considers an 80% lower receiver sold with a parts kit — such as the one offered by Polymer80 as a Buy Build Shoot Kit — to be a firearm requiring a background check. .

But the statute defining a firearm hasn’t changed.

ATF Leadership 2020 Acting Director Regina Lombardo & Associate Deputy Director Marvin Richardson
ATF Leadership 2020 Acting Director Regina Lombardo & Associate Deputy Director Marvin Richardson

What did change?

ATF is arbitrarily redefining firearms using interpretive guidance. Acting Director of the ATF Regina Lombardo must feel emboldened by the apparent victory of presidential candidate Joe Biden.

In November, she even began working early with the “Biden Transition Team.”

Take Action Square

Her reported priorities? Pistol braces and 80% receivers.

But this is more than cooperating with a transition team. Lombardo has begun advancing the Biden-Harris gun control agenda during the Trump Administration!

Take action and tell President Trump to fire Acting Director of the ATF Regina Lombardo and her anti-gun subordinates responsible for this anti-Second Amendment attack on homemade firearms.

These anti-gunners have got to go!

In liberty,

Aidan Johnston

U.S. government distributed covid relief funds to Islamic groups with long-held ties to jihad violence



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Of course. Because no one in the federal government knows anything about Islam. Everyone involved in the distribution of these funds knows that Islam is a religion of peace and that it would be “Islamophobic” to suspect, much less investigate, any of these organizations.

“COVID Relief Funds Went to Violent Extremists,” by Sam Westrop, Newsweek, December 7, 2020:

The federal government’s distribution of COVID relief funds over the past year has been disastrous. As Bloomberg reported in October, the Small Business Administration (SBA) “gave out $10,000 grants to almost anyone who asked.” From fraudulent applications to identity theft, billions of dollars are believed to have been stolen.

However, criminals were not the only ones to benefit from governmental incompetence; federal COVID relief has also helped prop up extremist organizations with long-held ties to violence. The amounts may be small, but the examples are shocking.

Perhaps most striking is the $1,000 handed out to the Virginia-based Khatme Nubuwwat Center. Khatme Nubuwwat (KN) is a violent South Asian movement committed to the eradication of the Ahmadiyyah, a tiny, moderate Muslim sect. For seventy years, KN groups have organized and encouraged violent pogroms against members of the minority sect. Hundreds have been murdered. Just this year, a KN supporter was involved in luring an Ahmadi American citizen to his death in Pakistan.

Today, even in the West, KN distributes leaflets openly advocating the killing of Ahmadiyyah. Islamists in the West follow through. In 2016, a KN member in Scotland stabbed an Ahmadi shopkeeper to death. KN activists applauded the killing, with one KN group declaring: “Congratulations to all Muslims.”

In 2017, the same Khatme Nubuwwat Center in Virginia that received federal monies organized a conference at which speakers encouraged violence against Ahmadi Muslims and discussed their hopes for criminalizing the Ahmadiyyah faith in the West.

But the killer of the Scottish shopkeeper was not only a member of KN; he belonged also to Dawat-e-Islami (DeI), another South Asian Islamist movement. Leaders of DeI warn Muslims against behaving like Jews, and openly advocate the killing of “blasphemers.” DeI members have carried out a number of terrorist attacks, including a recent attack in France near the Charlie Hebdo offices. This year, the SBA handed $10,000 to DeI’s principal U.S. proxy, based in Chicago.

These are far from the only examples. The Indian American Muslim Council, an anti-Hindu Islamist group with alleged ties to SIMI, a banned terrorist organization in India, was given $1,000 of taxpayers’ money. Meanwhile, $10,000 went to the Al-Furqaan Foundation, a prominent Salafi proselytization organization funded by the Qatari regime. Many of these groups could doubtlessly survive without taxpayer subsidies. Al-Furqaan Foundation’s most recent tax return, for example, reported revenue of over $3.5 million.

A number of organizations, long accused of serving as components of a Hamas network in the U.S, also received grants. The government gave $10,000 to Baitulmaal, a Texas charity that openly funds Hamas proxies in Gaza, currently run by Mazen Mokhtar, a former fundraiser for the Taliban and other jihadist groups. American Muslims for Palestine also received $10,000. The group’s officials have long expressed support for Hamas’s activities, and several have been tied to the terror movement’s activities in the U.S….

It is also noteworthy that COVID relief makes up only 1/25th of this year’s federal funding for American Muslim organizations. Under President Donald Trump, perhaps surprisingly, the amount given to American Muslim organizations in 2020 surpassed $25 million, far beyond the previous record of $14 million handed out by federal agencies to Islamic organizations in 2008….

Meanwhile, what do organizations that oppose jihad violence and Sharia oppression get? Why, nothing, of course. Nothing except opprobrium.


BOMBSHELL: Leaked List of 2 Million Chinese Communist Party Members Shows How Vulnerable the West Is



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Sky News reported a list of nearly two million members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who are operating worldwide and in dozens of companies based in the United States and other Western nations. According to the report, the list was compiled in 2016 by Chinese dissidents who extracted the data from a Shanghai server.

In mid-September, the data was leaked to a newly formed international group called the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC). This is a group of 150 legislators whose mission is stated on their website:

IPAC’s mission is to foster deeper collaboration between like-minded legislators. Its principal work is to monitor relevant developments, to assist legislators to construct appropriate and coordinated responses, and to help craft a proactive and strategic approach on issues related to the People’s Republic of China.

IPAC provided the data to four independent media outlets for verification. It is believed to be the first leak of its kind and gives a detailed look at how the party operates under Chairman Xi Jinping. The data shows that party members are embedded in some of the world’s largest companies and inside government agencies.

“Communist party branches have been set up inside western companies, allowing the infiltration of those companies by CCP members – who, if called on, are answerable directly to the communist party, to the Chairman, the president himself,” she said. “Along with the personal identifying details of 1.95 million communist party members, mostly from Shanghai, there are also the details of 79,000 communist party branches, many of them inside companies”.

One of the media outlets that investigated the list was the Daily Mail. They published additional details on their findings and report:

Loyal members of the Chinese Communist Party are working in British consulates, universities and for some of the UK’s leading companies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

An extraordinary leaked database of 1.95 million registered party members reveals how Beijing’s malign influence now stretches into almost every corner of British life, including defence firms, banks and pharmaceutical giants.

Most alarmingly, some of its members – who swear a solemn oath to ‘guard Party secrets, be loyal to the Party, work hard, fight for communism throughout my life…and never betray the Party’ – are understood to have secured jobs in British consulates.

They also report on specific companies. Pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and Pfizer, who are both involved in COVID-19 vaccination development, employed 123 CCP loyalists between them. Two banks, HSBC and Standard Chartered, had 600 party loyalists across 19 branches in 2016. Corporations with defense applications, such as Airbus, Boeing, and Rolls Royce also employed hundreds of people on the list.

Both reports are clear in saying that there is no evidence the people on the list are actively spying for China. However, it stretches credibility to believe this is not happening. A recent lecture from a Chinese economics professor indicated that this occurred in large financial institutions. An editorial from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe provided some context for the professor’s remarks:

The intelligence is clear: Beijing intends to dominate the US and the rest of the planet economically, militarily, and technologically.

I call its approach of economic espionage “rob, replicate and replace.” China robs US companies of their intellectual property, replicates the technology and then replaces the US firms in the global marketplace.

China also steals sensitive US defense technology to fuel President Xi Jinping’s aggressive plan to make China the world’s foremost military power.

All of this information should be incorporated into any foreign policy strategy from an incoming Biden administration. Certainly, in a second Trump administration, it would have been taken very seriously. It appears Biden’s Climate Czar, John Kerry, has already been in conversations with Chinese officials, and it could be a return to business as usual wrapped in “climate change.”

When he participated in a panel at the World Economic Forum in mid-November, Kerry said the following:

Last night I took part in a call in Governor Brown had a university of California session. And Shi Jinhua [spelled phonetically] who many of you know is the Chinese [representative] on climate and he and I have worked together for years. We got together when I first became Secretary and got China and the U.S. working together to move towards Paris which helped us get the Paris agreement done. Last night I heard words from Shi Jinhua that were more than encouraging about the potential for the U.S. and China to begin immediately to try and work again in the same fashion.

Kerry made the comments before he was appointed to his made-up position. However, he clearly intends to work with China as if they are still a developing nation instead of one that poses an existential threat to the West. This perspective in U.S.-China relations is inconsistent with the view of 73% of Americans post-pandemic. Disapproval of China is at historic highs across the U.S. and countries we are allied with, according to Pew Research.

Our foreign policy needs to reflect that reality.

N.J. Gym Owner Fined $1 Million for Refusing to Close Has a Message for Gov. Phil Murphy


"This is not a game, these are our lives."

Atilis Gym owners break into their own business to let in customers, again violating N.J.‘s coronavirus orders

A judge says Bellmawr’s Atilis Gym can remain open if it follows state’s guidelines. The owners say that’s not going to happen.



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Atilis Gym has been continuously harassed by the government of New Jersey for refusing to shut its doors or impose mask mandates on its clients. Owner Ian Smith has made headlines for staying open despite orders from the state to close up shop.

But now he’s back with a viral video message he made for Governor Phil Murphy. I don’t think the state’s sanctions on him are working, do you? Filming in a full gym, Smith stands defiant against government interference with his right to work and feed his family. I wish every business owner in America was this courageous. That’s all it would take to end the unfair targeting of small businesses while huge corporations are allowed to turn profits without fines. Resist!





Why SCOTUS Punted, and What Happens Next

Why SCOTUS Punted, and What Happens Next



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Upon learning that the Supreme Court wouldn’t consider the lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to challenge the election fraud perpetrated in four key battleground states, President Trump tweeted: “The Supreme Court had ZERO interest in the merits of the greatest voter fraud ever perpetrated on the United States of America.” He called it a “disgraceful miscarriage of justice.”

Paxton agreed. The justices didn’t even bother to hear any of the arguments he claimed to justify suing those four states. He angrily asked rhetorically:

If my people are harmed, which I view them as having been harmed, by the fact that other states didn’t follow their election laws and didn’t follow the Constitution, how do I address the fact that my voters are affected by a national election, that potentially was not done correctly, where there was fraud, and in that state law and federal law were not followed?

The high court issued a nonsensical explanation:

Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.

It was a classic waffle, as the concept of “standing” — “cognizable interest” — has been carefully defined in Whitmore v. Arkansas, decided by the Supreme Court in 1990:

To establish an Article III case or controversy, a litigant first must clearly demonstrate that he has suffered an “injury in fact.” That injury, we have emphasized repeatedly, must be concrete in both a qualitative and temporal sense.

The complainant must allege an injury to himself that is “distinct and palpable,” … as opposed to merely “abstract,” … and the alleged harm must be actual or imminent, not “conjectural” or “hypothetical.”…

Further, the litigant must satisfy the “causation” and “redressability” prongs of the Article III minima by showing that the injury “fairly can be traced to the challenged action” and “is likely to be redressed by a favorable decision.”

As attorney Andrea Widburg noted in American Thinker, “Texas met those requirements, showing an ‘injury in fact’ that is ‘distinct and palpable,’ that ‘can be traced to the challenged action’ and that can be ‘redressed by a favorable decision.’

So, with the high court’s flimsy excuse exposed, what is its real motivation behind its decision? Dick Morris thinks they were intimidated by the Biden campaign:

The Supreme Court is after justice, of course, but primarily they are after making sure the Supreme Court survives — that’s their institution and that’s their duty.

I believe the Supreme Court was sent a message by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party during the election.

And the message was: “If you overturn this election, we will pack you, and make your Court basically meaningless.”

Retired Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said that, in his opinion, the court just didn’t want to deal with an issue fraught with political overtones:

This Supreme Court decision sends a message. The majority included the three justices appointed by President [Donald] Trump, and they all said, “We’re not going to hear the Texas case. We’re not going to get involved in this election.”

I think this sends a message. It’s not a legal message, but it’s a practical message: the Supreme Court is out of this game.

What happens next? Trump attorney Sidney Powell thinks the situation merits exercising an Executive Order the president issued in 2018: No. 13848, titled “Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election.”

Per that order, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) “shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government has acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in that election.” The director must present his findings to the president no later than 45 days after the election. That would be Friday, December 18.

Said Powell:

[EO 13848 gives the president] “all kinds of power … to do everything from seize assets to freeze things, demand the impoundment of the machines.

Under the emergency powers, he could even appoint a special prosecutor to look into this, which is exactly what needs to happen.

Every machine, every voting machine in the country should be impounded right now. There’s frankly more than enough criminal probable cause to justify that, for anybody who’s willing to address the law and the facts purely on the basis of truth and not politics, or corporate greed, or global wealth.

And then there’s Section 252 of the Insurrection Act of 1807, which states:

Whenever the President considers that unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages, or rebellion against the authority of the United States, make it impracticable to enforce the laws of the United States in any State by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, he may call into Federal service such of the militia of any State, and use such of the armed forces, as he considers necessary to enforce those laws or to suppress the rebellion.

As Stephen Meister pointed out in the Epoch Times:

The president’s invocation of the Insurrection Act isn’t a declaration of martial law. The Constitution isn’t suspended. The writ of habeas corpus isn’t suspended. The president would be using troops to enforce the law, not override it.

How that would play out remains to be seen. Suffice to say, the president has numerous options available to him to keep Biden from fraudulently assuming the office of the presidency of the United States on January 20.
