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.

Biden’s Evil Empire Must Be Defeated!

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes.

Published

on

President Biden is now angry every time he speaks, and it’s clear he will keep yelling until morale and his polls improve. He calls a celebration for his Inflation Reduction Act on a day the Dow Jones goes down over a thousand points and inflation remains high at 8.3%. What does he do after his delusional party? He retreats to Delaware for more rest and safety.

The Biden lies keep coming. It’s all talking points that are meant to attract the ill-informed, but his words are even hard to believe for loyal Democrats. When people go to fill their car with gas, buy food for the family, or face rent increases, they come face to face with the stark reality. Prices are up—way up! Two-thirds of America are reportedly living paycheck to paycheck. The mortgage rate is exploding, taking home ownership out of the reach of millions of Americans. The numbers don’t lie. It’s hard for voters not to notice when they face daily reminders of how their standard of living is falling like a stone.

It’s time for American voters to wake up. The November midterms are just weeks away! Biden keeps yelling that MAGA Republicans are the most dangerous threat America faces. Why? They dare believe his election victory was a fraud. They dare to believe that the Southern border is not even close to being secure. They are watching illegal aliens and dangerous drugs flood across that “secure border” daily. Yes, MAGA Republicans are indeed dangerous—dangerous to the Democrats’ slim control of the Senate and the House.

Democrats want you to believe the hype that they are closing the gap with Republicans. But when you see the low turnout at Biden events, you have to wonder. The voter enthusiasm for actually voting in November rests with the Republicans. They are mad as hell and can’t wait to do everything they can to vote out every Democrat running.

Biden and his minions keep trying to pay off potential voters, but there are serious doubts as to whether you even have the authority to deliver what they promise. Many assert that relieving student loan debt is illegal. To keep the hope alive, the Biden administration isn’t even attempting to allocate the funds until December. They have until November 15th, after the election is over, to register for debt relief. How convenient! Democrats get their votes, and they get stuck with an empty promise. President Biden is the most generous “candy man” President in history. But he doesn’t use his own money. Democrats love using taxpayer money to pay off anyone willing to support their party.

President Biden and fellow Democrats keep calling the demonstration on January 6th and the capitol incursion an “insurrection.” This has to be the first “insurrection” attempted without guns. Biden doesn’t even admit that the only person shot to death was a Republican. Such claims of “insurrection” are nonsense! The real assault on America was occurring in major Democrat-controlled cities where rioting and looting destroyed businesses and lives. They watched liberal DA’s do nothing to hold the rioters responsible. Voters don’t feel safe. On the basis of the evident facts and their party platforms and performance, which party do you think will win the law-and-order voter?

To make citizens less safe, Democrats call for more gun control at a time there are not enough law enforcement officers to protect our citizens. Fearing crime, Democrats want to make it harder for citizens to get the weapons they need to protect their own families. Democrats have no reservations in funding the hiring of thousands of armed IRS agents to work their will on taxpayers. At a time Biden and his party won’t keep Americans safe, it’s time to elect politicians who will stand for our second amendment rights!

Biden claims that it‘s the Republicans who are denying fair elections and stopping needed reforms. But it is the Democrats who want to recklessly extend voting days and end requirements for voter IDs. If Democrats are so sure that many Americans aren’t smart enough to secure and carry a valid ID, they should make that their campaign focus. All voters have two months to secure an ID. If someone isn’t smart enough to take their ID to the polls, maybe it’s not wise for them to vote, no matter what their party.

To Democrats, “Global Warming” is irrefutable. It’s “settled science.” Why else would they support investing billions in their “Green New Deal” and unproven alternative energy schemes? Democrats want those who do not accept such claims to be labeled as “science deniers.” True science is built on constantly questioning, testing, and continuing to study any hypothesis. The weather of earth is such a complex system with millions of uncontrolled variables, it’s crazy to accept any of these claims as “settled science.” It will be decades before we see whether changes in weather patterns are cyclical or linear. But what do Democrats say of such valid reservations—“You should be ashamed of yourself to disagree with our truth!”.

Democrats are doing everything they can to increase the racial animus in America. They claim there is “white privilege” and “systemic racism.” Why? They hope creating a huge “white supremacy” enemy will draw minorities to their party for protection. There are “racists” of all races in America, but they are few in any race. America remains the least racist country in the world. There are thousands of amazing black Americans who have thrived in this country. They have started their own companies and elevated their standard of living. They succeeded not by looking to Washington but by earning their success the old-fashioned way—by working their tails off. Democrats want minorities dependent, not successful. No minority should look to Democrats for special programs; follow the example of the millions of minorities who have successfully lived their own American Dream. It’s time to live your own.

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes! After all, if you can’t win on issues, try demeaning half of Americans as “dangerous” extremists. Americans can’t let this work. Get mad. Get ready for the most important election of your life. Be a contagious conservative and let others know the truth about this administration. Take back America by voting for every Republican candidate willing to serve. Remember this important truth—If it’s not close, they can’t cheat!

Tucker: Martha’s Vineyard Won’t Accept The Migrants

They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.

Published

on

Tucker takes a look at what went down over 50 immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard last week, a place that claims to welcome all with open arms without question, unless they’re … sent over by a politician … on a plane … without permission … like a certain someone has been doing with several thousands of … oh, hello, Mister President.

Highlights include:

“If there’s one thing we have learned about the people who make the rules, it’s that they have no intention of following them, any of them, ever, ever. They command you to wear a mask as you jog alone in the park while they head to dinner barefaced at the French Laundry, that happened. They harangue you of the carbon footprint of your lawnmower as they fly to Aspen on their private jets. You see that every day. How many members of Congress that voted to expand the police powers of the IRS don’t pay their own taxes? More than a few.”

“How many politicians who fervently support gun control have armed bodyguards that you pay for? Well, let’s see, every single one.”

“Another word for this is a ‘caste system,’ which is increasingly what we have in the United States. Caste systems are common in poor countries, the countries from which most of our immigrants come, but it’s the opposite of the traditional American system, which was imperfect egalitarianism.”

“In the old America, every citizen was considered equal under the law, as well as in the eyes of God. Everybody had to follow the same rules because nobody underneath it all was more important than anyone else, we were all citizens. Citizenship implies inherent rights, rights that politicians cannot under any circumstances take from you because they did not bestow them in the first place, you were born with them.”

“Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida generously sent a plane load of 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to the Vineyard, which is a small, famously affluent island off the coast of Massachusetts. Martha’s Vineyard has everything you could ever want in the world, except racial diversity. The island is whiter than a Swedish bluegrass festival, and DeSantis was trying to help. Under normal circumstances, the residents of Martha’s Vineyard would’ve had no choice but to smile and say, ‘thank you, Governor DeSantis.’ When government officials send you the blessed gift of diverse immigrants or refugees, you must accept. That’s the ‘rule.'”

“That’s how America works. Everybody knows it because it’s been going on for a very long time, that’s the rule. But, it turns out the people of Martha’s Vineyard aren’t just anyone. They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.”
