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 left is going to hit you with a hammer, but don’t be the one to give them the hammer!



The left applies pressure to the right in order to get them to make mistakes. What is happening right now in America is a travesty in the left is using every single thing they can to cause more and more pressure on the right with the hopes that they will make this mistake that can be used against him. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener tells you exactly what this mistake is and how you can avoid making it. Remember, the left is going to hit you with a hammer, but don’t be the one to give them the hammer!

Unraveling the Democrats’ “Contract with America”



As we race towards the November mid-terms, we search for a clear differentiation between the parties vying for our support. Having lost control of the White House, the Senate, and the House, the Republicans have promised to supply a new Contract with America.

On Sept. 27, 1994, on the Capitol steps in Washington, D.C., Newt Gingrich shepherded members of the Republican minority to announce a “Contract with America” outlining legislation to be enacted by the House of Representatives within the first 100 days of the 104th Congress. They won big. It’s time for Republicans to come forward with a similar contract.

The Democrats are known to promise whatever they think will keep them in power. Many of their talking points need no evidence; they are accepted as undeniable truths by our left-leaning news media. You can’t defeat your political opponent until you know what they stand for. In an effort to begin isolating many of their key priorities, what follows could be the Democrat Party’s Contract with America and my brief commentary on why those priorities are bad for this country we love:

Trending on Do Not Make This Mistake

Increased gun controls are vital because guns kill people. With growing incidence of mass murders and gun violence, we support doing more to limit citizens from purchasing and using guns. (Commentary: Criminals never follow gun laws. Citizens need the Second Amendment to support their right to bear arms.)

Women have the right to an abortion. With the U.S. Supreme Court reversing Roe vs. Wade, Democrats support a federal law securing a woman’s right to an abortion. (Commentary: The life of an unborn fetus has value and restrictions on when or if an abortion is allowed should be left to the states.)

Tax increases to support government programs must be paid by the rich who don’t pay their fair share. To fund the necessary programs designed to help those less fortunate still recovering from the COVID pandemic, the most successful Americans will be required to shoulder the cost. (Commentary: The rich already pay the vast majority of federal and state income taxes with the bottom fifty percent paying nothing. Adding new entitlements creates more government dependence rather than promoting the American value of self-reliance.)

Because of police abuse and racial biases, spend less on law enforcement officers and more on mental health workers to deal with the true “reasons” for crime. In a world of white privilege, systemic racism, and unequal incarceration of minority citizens, defunding abusive law enforcement practices and increasing mental health services must be considered a priority. (Commentary: At a time citizens are more fearful of becoming victims of crime, we need more law enforcement officers and DAs who will fully prosecute all criminals of any race.)

Support Election reforms which expand the access and days for voting and limit ID requirements that negatively impact minority voting. Forcing voters to show an ID and sign their ballots is just another form of voter suppression. (Commentary: Trust in election results is at an all-time low. As has always been the case, citizens should have to vote on the designated election day and proper ID should be required to prove citizenship.)

Because of the threat of Adverse climate change, end America’s dependence on fossil fuels and develop and fund green energy alternatives. No matter what the cost to citizens today, the reality of global warming requires changes now that restrict our dependence on oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy. (Commentary: Even if eventually it may be necessary, the reliable technology and resources needed for green energy alternatives are not adequate at this time and fossil fuels and nuclear energy should be used to meet our current energy needs. Instead of buying oil and coal from others, we should be 100% energy independent and capitalize on our own cheaper resources.)

Completing the Southern border wall is racially insensitive and unnecessary at a time we need more workers and must remain a refuse for those seeking freedom and opportunity. We will provide temporary status documents, transportation to a place to live, and eventual hope for a path to citizenship. (Commentary: Maintaining border security is job one for every country. Legal immigration should be encouraged and expanded as needed, but the border wall should be completed in order to limit illegal immigration, the flow of illegal drugs, and easy access to gangs and terrorists.)

Dismantle the conservative strangle-hold on the U.S. Supreme Court. Whether by expanding the number of justices, impeachment, or passing mandatory retirement for justices, we will secure a Supreme Court that is not bound by the antiquated Constitution but will meet the needs of this generation. (Commentary: The Supreme Court must remain independent of political manipulation, keeping the Constitution as the sole source of reference for whether a law can be enforced at the state or federal level.)

Convict President Donald Trump of some crime that will limit his ability to run for office in 2024. President Trump did such damage to our country and initiated insurrection on January 6th. As a result, he cannot be allowed to even run for President again. (Commentary: The unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago has already established their fishing expedition. Whether Donald Trump is the standard bearer for the Republican Party in 2024 should be up to the people and not a result of trumped-up charges or judicial fiat.)

Have I been fair? Have I let anything out? We could add military unpreparedness, diplomatic failures, minimum wage, student loan relief, as the list is endless. I wonder if liberals even know what the Left-leaning elites in their party have done to hijack their party? Hopefully, this column will help inform them of what they actually stand for and what their leaders plan to continue to do to America.

My fear is that, just as in the last election, most Democrats who voted against anything Trump, will do the same in the mid-terms against any from the party of the “deplorables.” After all, the one-sided mainstream media makes all conservatives look as bad as possible. Maybe it’s time liberals look in the mirror at their own party. Look at what they have done in two years and what lies ahead if they are given more time to have their way. Here’s hoping that many do before November.
