The Guy Who Could Save Our Republic: Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich

Published

on

During a time when many Republican officials have been unwilling to do anything to battle election fraud, a few are holding firm. Last year, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich got involved with six election lawsuits, including successfully suing the Democratic County Recorder when he tried to send out mail in ballots to everyone in Maricopa County. Brnovich wrote to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors a few days after the election urging them to more than double the hand audit. He also filed an amicus brief in support of the Arizona State Senate demanding that the supervisors turn over the Dominion voting machines for inspection.

 

Now, he’s taking on the DNC in a case at the Supreme Court that is going to determine whether states can take measures to combat election fraud. Oral arguments are scheduled for March 2. This will likely determine whether the election fraud we saw in the presidential race can continue or whether states will be able to stop it.

The litigation arose before the 2016 election and involves two laws Arizona implemented against election fraud. Two separate cases were consolidated, Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee and Arizona Republican Party v. Democratic National Committee. One law requires that a ballot be thrown out if it was cast in a precinct other than the one matching the voter’s home address. The other law bans ballot harvesting, where third parties (with a few obvious exceptions including close family, household members and caretakers) are allowed to turn ballots in. The DNC sued Arizona over the two laws, claiming racism (no surprise). The federal district court judge and a three-judge panel in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Arizona, but the full Ninth Circuit panel overruled the smaller panel. 

 

In order to prove racial discrimination under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, there must be proof of a substantial disparate impact. There is no evidence of this. The district court found that the out-of-precinct policy had no impact on 99.9% of non-minority voters and 99.8% of minority voters. So the DNC is attempting to get the court to ignore the word “substantial” to get around this. Brnovich said in his brief that doing so would lead to chaos. For example, one slight change in voting laws could increase Hispanic voter turnout by 2% while decreasing black turnout by 2%. As for the ballot harvesting ban, the DNC (and Arizona’s Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs) failed to provide any purported evidence of racial discrimination.  

 

Ten senators, led by Ted Cruz, filed a brief supporting Arizona. The Trump administration also filed a brief in support of Arizona, saying the laws do not promote racial discrimination in voting. Surprisingly, when Biden first took office his administration supported that position. Since then, Deputy Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler backtracked slightly and said in a letter to the court that the administration disagrees on a few points, but didn’t go any further than that. “The Biden administration basically agreed that our voting laws don’t violate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act,” Brnovich told The Daily Signal.   

 

If banning ballot harvesting is racist, then 19 other states must be racist too since they also ban the practice. Most states also require citizens to vote at their assigned precinct. 

 

We saw plenty of evidence from the 2020 election where unscrupulous Democrat activists harvested ballots from voters, coerced them into filling them out or filled them out for them, and turned them in. Project Veritas caught activists taking advantage of elderly Somali immigrants in order to add votes for Rep. Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis. Project Veritas also caught the Biden campaign’s Texas Political Director Dallas Jones harvesting ballots from dead people, homeless people and nursing home residents. There are countless more stories like this. It is a real problem. 

 

This is a key decision because if laws like this can be struck down for being racist, you could make the argument that a lot of election integrity laws could be struck down as racist. Let’s say common sense precautions such as requiring extra poll watchers from both parties results in 1% fewer minority votes. That is so small it is statistically insignificant. But under the Democrats’ standard, that tiny difference would constitute racism.

 

We may not have been able to defeat election fraud in the 2020 election in time; they broadsided us. But it is imperative to stop it or Republicans may never hold significant offices again. It is the single most important issue we must focus on right now. The future of our country hinges on this decision.

 

Brnovich is going to be under one of the most horrendous attacks by the left we have ever seen. They already have their sights on him. He was the first state attorney general to sue Google. He filed a lawsuit immediately after Biden took office over the administration’s 100 day freeze on deportations. He led several amicus briefs defending the Second Amendment and religious liberty. He’s taken on the higher education establishment and continues to fight them in state court. And before becoming AG, he served as director of the Center for Constitutional Government at the Goldwater Institute. 

 

This will be one of the biggest political fights of our lifetime. Although the Biden administration has backed down on the case, the so-called conservatives on the Supreme Court have proven they cannot be trusted. Most political fights are fought very publicly in the legislative and executive arenas, which is where most major policy is made. The Supreme Court only accepts about 80 cases each year, but a handful of its cases have profound implications. This is the sleeper case no one knows about that may end up like a Roe v. Wade.

Ignore Much of What Pundits Have to Say

Can we be confident in advice we receive from people who have not mastered what they teach?

Published

on

When the opportunity arose, I attended a lecture by one of the most well-known authors and speakers in America. I had previewed his CD and read two of his books prior to his lecture; in person, he lived up to my expectations. So, I was intrigued when a friend, involved with bringing this speaker to our area relayed a personal incident to me. 

Directly following the speaker’s presentation, my friend was responsible for driving him to the airport, and accompanying him until his flight departed. That summer afternoon, it was rainy and the skies were dark.

As it turned out, the author was a nervous flyer and took several drinks in the airport lounge prior to boarding the plane.  I found this incident to be amazing because I had so often heard him say things such as, “Everything in this universe is perfect.” It struck me that, in many ways, the speaker wasn’t practicing his philosophy. Nevertheless, all human beings have their faults and foibles and, as time passed, I forgot about the incident.

High-Priced Gurus

One morning, I had the occasion to pick up USA Today. In the lifestyle section, there was a feature on a relationship guru and author of international best-sellers on relationships. She had won the “Oscar” of infomercials, earning $24 million in a single year.  

In this published interview, the reporter asked her why we should listen to a relationship guru who had been married five times. Five times? I couldn’t believe it! She had wedded her fifth husband, some 11 years her junior, only a short time before producing her award-winning infomercial on having a successful relationship. 

In the infomercial, she is featured as having a loving relationship with her husband. Okay, but in no way does the infomercial tell us that he is her fifth husband and that she had married him three weeks ago.

Not Walking their Talk

I had a flash from the past: I recalled the story about the nervous flyer author. Yet, nothing prepared me for the revelations about the relationship guru, a self-proclaimed expert, using the slickest 21st-century marketing available to sell her information and products.  

She was well-versed in her subject matter. Upon hearing her advice, I recognized that it did seem sound. However, the larger issue is, “Can we be confident in the advice we receive from those who have not mastered what they teach, or who do not even remotely walk their talk?”

Nancy Pelosi: The Personification of Evil

Nancy Pelosi should be lead away from Congress in handcuffs and ankle chains

Published

on

Last year, Newt Gringich condemned Nancy Pelosi as the “most dangerous Speaker of the House we’ve had… She doesn’t mind abusing power. She doesn’t mind running over people.” Indeed! She praises Biden, downplays inflation, ignores the plight of her own constituency, deals in insider trading, and continually flouts the law and the U.S. Constitution. Has there ever been a Speaker more venal, more vicious, and more vindictive than Nancy Pelosi?

From her private hair salon visits – when everybody else was locked down – to her gourmet ice cream, to her embrace of riots that didn’t put her in danger, to her attempted civilization-destroying HR-1 bill, to her continual public persona of feigned sincerity, there is plenty to dislike. It seems as if the near octogenarian is evil personified, and getting worse each day.

Beyond Credibility

Ms. Pelosi is so out of touch with what everyday Americans experience that she is almost an anachronism. Her unbounded hatred of Donald Trump exceeded that of the typical leftist. From ripping up his whirlwind 2020 State of the Union speech, to all of the little acts that she’s undertaken, her phoniness is amply on display.

On numerous occasions, while he was president, she said “I’m praying for President Trump.” Can anyone, let alone God, accept that as the truth? She pushed the impeachment button twice, and would do it a third time and fourth time, if the ‘opportunity’ were to arise.

The first impeachment was based on shoddy information and shallow rationale. Even far leftists should have been up in arms. Don’t they know that they’ve opened the wrong door and that this will happen to them, some day soon?

The Loneliest Number

Based on one unidentified whistleblower, Pelosi initiated impeachment proceedings against President Trump, primarily as a result of a phone call he had with the Ukrainian prime minister.

Next, as The Washington Post has begrudgingly pointed out, Donald Trump had no impact on the Capitol riot that took place on January 6th. The riot had been pre-planned by members of Antifa, as well as some right-wingers. It didn’t matter what President Trump said on the Mall, these people had already planned to rush the Capitol and occupy it for however long they could.

To impeach Donald Trump a second time, after he was already out of office (which makes the quest absurd), Nancy Pelosi and the looney Left needed a valid rationale. The FBI report didn’t support them, nor did the timeline of events.

No One is Safe

Today, anyone who plans a rally or protest in Washington, D.C., or elsewhere, whose members are infiltrated by others, could be subject to the same erroneous charges. Thus by impeaching Donald Trump a second time, Pelosi was all but saying to the American public, your right to assembly, which can be upset by intruders, who plant a false flag (a familiar tactic of the Left), makes you liable. This is a flat out attack on the First Amendment.

Infiltrating the rallies, assemblies, and peaceful protests of the opposing party is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a handbook on how to undermine and destroy America. Alinsky dedicated his book to the devil, and one can only hope that he became a permanent resident, for eternity, doing heavy labor, 24/7, in the hottest section of Hell.

A Cozy Cell?

When Pelosi’s time on Earth is over, and editors write her obituary, perhaps some will have enough objectivity to say that among all the Speakers of the House since the nation was founded, she did not serve with distinction.

She manipulated her office and the American public, on a continual basis, for her own personal power, for the wealth she could generate, and to diminish our freedoms as Americans. If this isn’t said about her, then whoever writes the obituary will be engaging in fantasy.

Nancy Pelosi should be lead away from Congress in handcuffs and ankle chains. She is a criminal and her crimes against America are vast and deep. The things she has done in the name of ‘democracy’ are so bogus that democracy itself cries out.
