AZ Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is Out of Control on Ballot Audit

Published

on

Some areas of the country haven’t given up on investigating voter fraud during the presidential election, including Arizona and Georgia. But it’s not easy, because the left is going all out to stop them. Here in Arizona, the main opposition is coming from the Arizona Secretary of State, far left Katie Hobbs. This woman is frightening. She once referred to Donald Trump supporters as neo-Nazis. She is trying to make a name for herself since she wants to run for governor in 2022. 

The Arizona Senate ordered an audit of Maricopa County ballots earlier this year, taking possession of 2.1 million ballots and nearly 400 election machines and turning them over to be audited by cyber firms. It just doesn’t seem very plausible that Joe Biden won in Maricopa County, considering it’s a Republican stronghold (the words of CBS) with more registered Republicans than Democrats, and considering how well Republicans performed in other races here. As of February, there were just over 909,658 registered Republicans to 814,101 Democrats, a striking difference.  

In the Maricopa County Treasurer’s race, which featured two non-incumbents, the Republican handily beat the Democrat 46.65% to 42.46%. The Maricopa County Recorder, an incumbent Democrat who oversees Maricopa County Elections, lost to a Republican. In contrast, Biden supposedly beat Trump in the county by about two points.

The Maricopa County Supervisors, who many people locally believe are extremely corrupt and composed of RINOs, have fought the audit tooth and nail. They refused to comply with legislative subpoenas, forcing the issue into court. Senate President Karen Fann told them there was a lack of chain of custody for ballots, cut security seals and more ballot anomalies. The number of ballots listed on pink sheets in the boxes didn’t always match the number of ballots, and it was mostly a higher number (one example provided was off by 35 ballots). Fann also said the county had deleted databases, which Donald Trump repeated. Fortunately, CyFIR, one of the teams handling the audit, was able to recover the deleted files. 

Hobbs isn’t defending the law but is stonewalling just like the supervisors. She received $6 million in CARES money from Governor Doug Ducey to spend on election issues so has a lot of leeway to wreak havoc. She creates all kinds of issues, threatening lawsuits and constantly claiming there is something wrong with every bit of the audit process. She has attempted to get Biden’s DOJ involved. Ken Bennett, a former Republican secretary of state himself with excellent credibility in the state, is overseeing the process. He has dismissed her rants as baseless.

Hobbs apparently knows no bounds, she reportedly dishonestly tried to sneak in a paid elections expert to the audit by pretending to be a reporter.  

Hobbs is going all out to destroy Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich because of his proactive efforts stopping election fraud, such as his lawsuit suing the Democratic National Committee over ballot harvesting, currently at the U.S. Supreme Court. Her vengeance against him started before the election, when she became furious that Brnovich wouldn’t prosecute Trump. Earlier this year, Brnovich told the Maricopa County Supervisors to increase the number of ballots counted by hand from 2% to 5%, but they refused. Then Brnovich declared that the legislative branch has the authority to conduct the audit. Hobbs demanded that Brnovich shut down the audit due to her rants, but he didn’t. He said to her in a letter, “Any such complaints … must be based on credible facts and not conjecture of politics” and pointed to the separation of powers granting the legislature this authority.  

As a result, Hobbs has now filed over 12 bar complaints against Brnovich and his staff attorneys. Since there are rumors that Brnovich is running for governor too, she wants the conservative champion out of the way. But what about the attorneys helping Hobbs out drafting the groundless bar complaints, why isn’t anyone filing bar complaints against them? They are some of the most notorious left-wing activists in the state.

It’s gotten so bad the legislature is now stripping Hobbs of her ability to defend election lawsuits and transferring those powers to the Arizona Attorney General. Another provision will remove her authority over the museum at the state capitol and turn it over to the legislature. The House and Senate Appropriations Committees passed bills doing this that will be part of a full budget proposal expected to be signed into law.

A lot of Arizonans believe there was voter fraud. High Ground, a public affairs firm in the state that is not conservative, found that 42% of Arizonans in March thought there was “significant fraud” in the election, as did 78% of Republicans. 

The audit is being funded here and there are nine live cameras here. It is expected to finish by the end of June. While it’s too late to change the election results, it’s important to ensure that this never happens again, or there will never be a Republican president again. The investigation must continue. The fact the MSM is not reporting that boxes of ballots have pink slips listing counts of ballots in boxes that are off by 35 and other amounts is an incredible whitewash that can’t be dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” as Hobbs likes to say. 

Hobbs is using classic tactics that far left Saul Alinsky laid out in his Rules for Radicals. She’s furious the left-leaning judiciary is not bending to her demands as she expected, so now she’s turning to the left-wing Arizona State Bar. Arizona as well as the ballot audit going on in Georgia are currently ground zero for stopping election fraud. Keep the focus on this fraud until she is stopped.

This is How Far Left-Wing State Bars Are Now Going to Destroy Conservatives: Prosecution

Published

on

State bars have acquired a reputation for targeting conservative attorneys and destroying their ability to practice law, and now they are taking it to a new level — prosecution. It is practically unheard of — unless you’re being targeted — to be criminally prosecuted and arrested for not checking a box about an unrelated civil matter on a form, but that is what is happening to former Republican congressional candidate Jeffrey Moffatt.

Moffatt, who many believe was targeted by the State Bar of Arizona because he and his wife both ran for office as Republicans, was indicted a week ago by the Biden administration related to his efforts fighting back against a sketchy disbarment. He is being retaliated against because of how hard he’s fought back. A good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, as the old saying goes. That’s because the defense doesn’t get a chance to show their side to the grand jury, so the prosecutor can just pick and choose what evidence they want to produce.

In 2016, the presiding judge of the Arizona bar, William J. O’Neil, who has a lengthy history of corruption, including allegedly protecting a sexual predator, so bad that even the liberal Arizona Republic has written about him, disbarred Moffatt over something that other attorneys receive a mere slap on the hand for. But unfortunately, once an attorney has been disbarred in one state, almost every other state and jurisdiction reciprocally refuse to allow that attorney to practice law. It sounds draconian, and the effect sure is, but multiple jurisdictions piling on doesn’t make a person any worse. The left controls much of the legal system, particularly state bars, so it’s done deliberately when they want to thoroughly destroy someone.

Notably, even though Moffatt lives in California and the person who complained about him lives in New Mexico, neither the California bar nor the New Mexico bar did anything about the complaint, only the Arizona bar — and Moffatt has practically nothing to do with Arizona or practicing law there — pursued an investigation, no doubt as part of its pattern of going after conservative attorneys.

The prosecution comes down to the fact Moffatt didn’t disclose to the Social Security Administration that he was disbarred when representing claimants. There is NO requirement that people representing claimants be attorneys, it’s a red herring. Moffatt didn’t think he needed to disclose this information because he was actively fighting the disbarment, fully expecting to get it reversed since it was so obviously heavy-handed targeting. He wasn’t hiding the disbarment and his fight either, he has four federal lawsuits going over it and he and his wife have been very vocal on the internet.

The indictment lists just five payments he received for representing those clients, totaling merely $30,000. The Biden administration is charging him with wire fraud and falsifying a material fact. Whenever the government can’t get someone on a real crime, they throw in wire fraud. It merely means a method of communication like a phone, email, text or fax was used while you were supposedly committing some other crime. It sounds scary but it’s just meant to pile on.

In 2017, Moffatt sued the Arizona Bar, the State of Arizona and the Arizona Supreme Court over the disbarment. He has ongoing proceedings with the Social Security Administration fighting the disbarment going back to at least 2018 — so why bring criminal charges against him now over something they were perfectly happy to civilly litigate with him for three years?

Obviously, by fighting back he got under the skin of a Democrat on a power trip. The U.S. Attorney who signed the indictment, Tracy L. Wilkison, was appointed immediately after Joe Biden took office as president.

Efforts have arisen around the country to strip state bars of their monopolies over the practice of law — essentially functioning as unions, which is illegal in right-to-work states — but havent had any real luck yet. State bars have deep pockets because they gouge attorneys with huge mandatory dues. Their powerful lobbyists buy RINO legislators who oppose any legislation dismantling the bars.

The Moffatts believe that O’Neil was unconstitutionally seated — a judicial imposter who committed false impersonations. Many attorneys in Arizona believe he was put in that position in order to do the dirty work of powerful leftists at the top of Arizona’s legal system, accumulating so much dirt on people that no one would dare try and remove him.

Moffatt’s wife Star, who has spent a considerable amount of time investigating O’Neil’s corruption, said, “Some day, the Arizona Supreme Court will have to answer to a higher power why they condoned O’Neil to commit acts of a ‘Judicial Imposter.’ Tell me how in the world does an attorney like my husband get arrested for exposing O’Neil? O’Neil was also previously admonished by the Arizona Supreme Court for exceeding his jurisdiction and authority on death row cases.”

One of the top former prosecutors in Arizona told me, “I have never seen such a gross abuse of prosecutorial power, to arrest and pursue someone merely for not checking a box. Nowhere in the indictment does it even say how Jeff continuing to represent these individuals caused any harm or that the law even prohibits him from representing them. Since he’s not required to be an attorney, it sounds like a violation of equal protection.”

Moffatt is filing a motion to dismiss the indictment. Tellingly, O’Neil unexpectedly resigned about six months ago. Moffatt and his wife are wonderful people who have spent years volunteering and serving on the board of Miracle Star helping people with substance abuse problems. When some of the women had no place to go, they put them up temporarily.

This is just the beginning, expect more conservative attorneys to be prosecuted after disbarment. Trump’s attorneys are next, including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell. If a conservative attorney fights back too hard trying to expose corruption in the legal system, the leftists who control that arena will retaliate with prosecution. And sadly, judges like O’Neil are rarely punished.

Tucker: Biden’s botched drone strike killed kids

Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.

Published

on

Tucker explores emerging facts about the recent drone strike that killed several civilians, including children, in Afghanistan … and what the Biden administration isn’t doing about it.

Highlights include:

“The administration at that moment needed something to prove they are not senile and incompetent; they are instead decisive and strong. And what better way to do that than to kill people?”

“So that day the US military bombed a white Toyota in a residential complex not far from the Kabul airport. The White House touted that strike as a demonstration of our over-the horizon military capabilities in Afghanistan.”

“Soon, however, a few people started to ask the obvious questions. For example, who exactly had the US military killed? When asked, the defense department wouldn’t say. Oh, that might have been a tip.”

“Neither John Kirby nor anyone else at the Pentagon ever corrected that story.”

“But the New York Times did, to their rare credit. More than a week ago, the New York Times ran a piece revealing, with video evidence, that the Biden administration’s drones did not actually kill anyone from ‘Isis K,’ whoever they are, assuming they exist. The drone killed a civilian aid worker in a car full of kids.”

“Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.”

“After consulting with our inter-agency partners … we’re admitting that we lied to you for weeks about what we actually did.”
