AZ AG Brnovich is the Only Lawyer Successfully Fighting Election Fraud in the Courts



There’s a strange Twilight Zone situation taking place in Arizona, where former President Doald Trump has decided to endorse a trainwreck candidate for U.S. Senate to take on Sen. Mark Kelly, instead of the candidate with one of most solid conservative records the state has ever known. Attorney Blake Masters, who is funded by four out-of-state billionaires, has zero record in politics other than previous evidence he was a radical pro-choice Libertarian, and even though many candidates are getting involved in election integrity lawsuits, he hasn’t bothered to join even one. Instead, he sits around all day pitching himself to get on TV, where he calls Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich — who has been endorsed by Mark Levin and Sean Hannity — a “do-nothing RINO.”


This couldn’t be further from the truth. Brnovich has sued the Biden administration probably more than any other elected official, constantly leading coalitions of states in lawsuits over COVID-19, border security, environmental restrictions and more. Brnovich has a winning Supreme Court election integrity case named after him, Brnovich v. DNC, for inserting himself into a lawsuit where he wasn’t even involved, defending two Arizona laws. When the DNC sued Arizona over its bans on ballot harvesting and voting outside your precinct, radical Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs refused to defend the lawsuit so Brnovich stepped in instead. 


Politicians and websites thirsty for clicks talk big about prosecuting renegade election officials, but they forget that in order to maneuver the left-wing dominated legal system, they have to be ridiculously careful. As a result, many of the lawyers involved with exposing fraud in the 2020 presidential election are being unfairly disbarred or prosecuted for flimsy reasons, things that would be ignored otherwise if they didn’t involve Trump. 


This has left progressives gloating ad nauseum that no court has found any evidence of voter fraud. But Brnovich has quietly been working behind the scenes, barely dodging 12 bar complaints from Hobbs over his election integrity efforts. He’s a rare breed of conservative lawyer who’s figured out how to go after election fraud without getting disbarred. 


Much of the accusations from Masters’ millions come down to a single accusation, that Brnovich said there was no election fraud immediately after the 2020 election. But that was taken out of context, he merely said he hadn’t personally seen any yet. All of his efforts since then show he’s worked doggedly — but wisely — to combat the fraud. 


Brnovich went to court and successfully stopped Democratic Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes from illegally mailing thousands of ballots to voters in 2020 who didn’t request them. He intervened and prevented the illegal “curing” of ballots with no signatures. He issued a cease-and-desist letter to a ballot harvesting operation.


After the election, Brnovich told the Maricopa County Supervisors to increase the number of ballots counted by hand from 2% to 5%, but they refused. Hobbs demanded that Brnovich shut down the audit, but he didn’t. He forced the Maricopa County Supervisors to turn over materials they were withholding from the audit, threatening to withhold their funding, and filed a brief defending the audit.


He went after DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas for trying to interfere with Arizona’s election integrity efforts. He’s prosecuted countless people for voter fraud, including a Democratic operative involved in ballot harvesting who was likely the one featured in the 2,000 Mules documentary.


He is still investigating the results of the audit, releasing a preliminary interim report in April which found that 100,000 to 200,000 ballots lacked a chain of custody. He slammed Maricopa County officials’ response to his report while appearing on Steve Bannon’s War Room, for dismissing accusations of using AI to verify voter signatures on ballot envelopes. He issued a report recommending election changes. He’s done too much to list here, including going after petition circulators.


And there’s more in the works. He’s leading a coalition of states to defend North Carolina’s voter ID law and backing a Georgia law in court. He sued Hobbs over her failure to provide a lawful state election procedures manual. Hobbs refuses to include provisions prohibiting unstaffed drop boxes, requiring signature verification for non-mailed early ballots and preserving the requirement that voters vote in their precinct. He’s asked for a criminal investigation into Hobbs.


In contrast, Masters has done so many offensive things that he will be destroyed in the general election by Kelly, who’s on track to raise another $100 million like he did last election. Since my original trainwreck article about Masters was published, it’s been revealed that the candidate some call “Richie Rich, a gated community Libertarian who’s gonna say anything to get elected,” made a rap video wearing Native American war paint. Between that and his other “macaca” moment declaring that blacks are responsible for gun deaths, and his disturbing ties to the authoritarian neoreactionary movement, he has no chance of winning over the moderate swing voters necessary to beat Kelly. He’s so desperate that many of his claims about Brnovich’s inaction on election integrity are flat-out lies.


Longtime D.C.-based conservative writer Quin Hillyer wrote an article earlier this month titled “Trump Endorses Strange Arizona Man Over MAGA Star,” expressing his bewilderment over the Masters endorsement. Trump has made several other endorsements that have frustrated the conservative base, including J.D. Vance in Ohio and Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania. At Trump’s rally in Arizona Friday night, the audience booed when he announced his endorsement of Eli Crane in the state’s 2nd congressional district. 


Brnovich is the only candidate polls show who comes within two points of Kelly. If Masters wins, political experts say it will be a repeat of the Martha McSally disaster. After McSally, a terrible candidate who turned off the base, lost the U.S. Senate race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, Gov. Doug Ducey appointed her to the other seat to replace John McCain. As expected, when it came time for the election in 2020, she lost to Kelly.

The Rise of Mark Robinson and the Benefit to North Carolina

He will win the governorship of North Carolina, be an excellent governor, and have a greater political future ahead of him



Mark Robinson, if you are not aware, is currently North Carolina’s lieutenant governor. He is someone who made himself a success, despite coming from a background of extreme hardship. He was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, the 9th of 10 children. His upbringing, amidst alcoholism and domestic violence, was nowhere near what you would want for a growing child.

Onward and Upward

Robinson’s mother imbued in her children a sense of responsibility, and let them know in actions and words that perseverance, hard work, and devotion to God would be their best ticket to a rewarding life. Robinson absorbed the message at an early age.

Among the many stops in his personal journey, he served as a medical specialist in the Army reserves. He also worked in manufacturing, and then ran a small business with his wife. When the North American Free Trade Act (NAFTA) was passed his small business and career endeavors dissolved.

At one point, nearly 20 years ago, he had to declare bankruptcy. Despite his financial hardships he soldiered on. Eventually, he became North Carolina’s first Black lieutenant governor. As such, he has traveled extensively throughout the state, talking to people of every race, profession, trade, income level, education level, and inclination.

Now is the Time

Robinson knows the people of North Carolina perhaps as well as anyone could. Once he decided to run for governor a wellspring of voters emerged eager to see him succeed, because they know the man. Married for now 30+ years, with two children and two grandchildren, Robinson has vowed to be the education governor and the business enterprise governor that North Carolina wants and needs.

In the coming weeks and months, however, much of what you read about Robinson in the mainstream press will ignore his accomplishments, his vision, and the fundamental reasons that so many North Carolinians of all races want him to be the next governor.

The Left is so pathetically predictable that I can tell you with complete accuracy how they respond to Black conservatives. On cue, without missing a beat, the day after Mark Robinson won the Republican primary for governor in North Carolina, the vicious press, putting in overtime, went to work. Nine of 10 articles that you would encounter on Mark Robinson were complete hit jobs, taking his words and phrases out of context.

The same was true on the internet. Google, among the most evil companies that has ever appeared on Earth, with their oh-so-mysterious algorithms, made sure that nothing good was said about Mark Robinson until about the 12th listing. Even then, Google followed with more hit pieces.

We All Know Exactly Why

Why does the Left so thoroughly despise Black conservatives? Why does the Left disparage them at every turn, such as Jason Whitlock, Star Parker, Condoleezza Rice, Alan Keyes, Larry Elder, Candace Owens, Allen West, and Senator Tim Scott? Because the mere existence of a Black conservative upsets everything that the Left stands for, such as “keeping Blacks in their place,” ensuring they never dare to leave the liberal plantation, and hoping that they don’t have an original political thought.

Traditionally, Democrats retained many Black voters at the national, state, and local level through campaign promises, while never consistently delivering on them. And now, as we approach November 2024, they are losing their grip. Survey after survey reveals that Donald Trump is gaining major ground among Black voters, other minorities, young people, and suburban women.

The press will nitpick about statements Robinson made years and decades ago. They’ll claim he’s an anti-Semite. They’ll say he is ‘against his own people.’ They will attempt to demonize him. Don’t fall for any of it.

Making His Mark

Robinson spoke at CPAC 2024 and, while he only had 12 minutes, he brought down the house. At another gathering, he spoke for less than 90 seconds about why reparations are a bad idea. He laid out in the most logical manner why people today who claim they deserve reparations are the ones who owe others, mainly the Black pioneers who came before them. It is a brilliant piece of rhetoric that everyone, everywhere should hear.

Mark Robinson is the candidate whose time is now. He will win the governorship of North Carolina, be an excellent governor, and have a greater political future ahead of him. Donald Trump strongly endorsed him and one can foresee a time in which Robinson will have important business to do in Washington, DC.

Stress Promises Not Attacks



People wonder how Donald Trump could lose to Joe Biden in 2020 unless there was cheating. Yes, like millions of Americans, we believe that there was cheating, but Trump also did all he could to earn his disappointing loss. Without a change in his campaign performance, he could lose again.

Instead of campaigning on his record and his promises for his second term, President Trump spent most of his time demeaning Biden and stressing how inadequate he was as an opponent. It became a contest of personalities with only Trump’s personality on display. President Trump’s combative, attacking style was front and center almost every day while Biden spent most of his time in his basement or otherwise avoiding campaigning.

Trump and his supporters thought Biden would be easy to beat. After all, how could anyone but a dumb Democrat vote for such an incompetent leader for America’s President? Trump loves to point out that he received more votes than any past Presidential candidate. He did, but, unfortunately, Biden got more than he did and had enough to win. Did all vote for Biden because they wanted him to win? Some did, but far more came out to vote to defeat that “hated” Donald Trump. Trump had a lot of loyal supporters and possibly even more motivated haters!

Along with a couple of thousand other attendees at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville this week, I saw Donald Trump captivate a crowd who had been forced to wait nearly five hours to hear him speak because of travel problems. And speak he did! Yes, he had a teleprompter to give him the basics of his message, but his easy style and ready humor were often unleashed as he went off script to energize and entertain the crowd.

In addition to some of his more outrageous comments, he demonstrated a full command of the issues and policy priorities that he believes will return him to the White House. He asserted that the majority of Americans want what he can deliver independence, a secure border, law and order in our cities, school choice, religious freedom, true free speech, lowered inflation, and an end to deep state meddling and abusive regulations. The vast majority cheered as he listed his promises. After four years of President Joe Biden, I guess that even many Democrats want a change in these key priorities. Yes, former President Trump has the best policy cards to play, but will he play them well?

If you remember the adage, “loose lips sink ships,” you know that no candidate in recent history has looser lips than Donald Trump. That is why, during the campaign, clips of some of his more provocative statements had a way of playing the lead on most news and talk shows. If you want attention, Trump is the master. But will the kind of attention he receives win back the White House?

His verbal attacks on Biden and Haley were funny to supporters, but some in the crowd who remained seated were not smiling. Trump dared to ask, “Who would be dumb enough to vote for Biden again?” In short, Democrats are stupid, possibly even evil, and certainly easy to beat in 2024. That is what the over-confident Republicans said before the 2022 midterms. Well, as you remember, it wasn’t easy, and the GOP fell way short of expectations. We barely got control of the House and failed to regain control of the Senate.

In many conversations the next day, there were many compliments for Trump-“The guys got unbelievable energy, and I love his policy priorities. It’s what Americans desperately want and need!” But there was a common note of caution-“I’m worried about his abrasive name-calling and attacks. It’s hard for many independents and moderates to accept. Even if they don’t vote for Biden, they may just stay home. Trump needs their votes! We have to win this election! I’m worried.”

We know he’s no saint, but what politician is? When speaking to the National Religious Broadcasters audience, he stated that he was a believer but admitted that he certainly didn’t get carried away with his faith. He confessed that one Christian leader reminded others that they weren’t electing a preacher. They were electing a President who would deliver on the issues that mattered most.

One participant nearby laughed as he focused on his abrasive style, “At least he’s learned to cut down the swearing.” But he could do so much more and ensure his victory if he had the consistent discipline to focus on the issues that mattered most whenever he delivered a speech or responded to a question. In every comment, Trump should identify the problem Democratic
policies have been created but always ends the statement with what he promises to do when elected to right the ship.

President Trump has a full and insightful grasp of the pressing problems real Americans face. Can he unite the voters he needs to win? He knows what needs to be done, and he has the bold confidence and skill to deliver on what he has promised. It’s time for him to drop the personal attacks, compliment the GOP candidates he has beaten, and let responsible Americans return him to the White House to begin restoring America to what it once again can and must be to remain free and prosperous. May it be so!
