Thought for the day

"All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms." -- Diane Feinstein 

TIME Magazine has published an extraordinary investigative piece titled, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” detailing how an extensive network of powerful and wealthy people ran a “shadow” campaign in order to save the election.

The column, authored by Molly Ball, lays out a scenario involving “a well-funded cabal of powerful people” who worked in concert to change election laws and control the dissemination of information before and after the election.

The Department of Homeland Security said Monday that it ended a Trump-era policy requiring asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. immigration court, hours after a judge lifted an order in effect since December that it be reinstated.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed plans over the weekend to stage a trial where voting machines are the defendants.

While speaking with Steve Bannon at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday, Lindell explained that the "trial" would take place at his upcoming "Moment of Truth Summit" on election fraud later in August.

Lindell said he would "have the trial of the machines" on the second day of his summit.

"Hold it!" Bannon interrupted. "The trial of the machines!"

"The trial of the machines," Lindell repeated.

"Highly respected Dinesh D'Souza, working together with Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote, just released a trailer to their new movie, "2,000 Mules," that shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen. The movie exposes the lies of the Democrats, RINOs, and Fake News who say it was the "most secure election in history." It was, perhaps, the least secure in history. The ballot box was stuffed, and stuffed like never before—and it's all on video.

Pinal County officials in Arizona are under serious heat after Tuesday’s primary election. County officials apologized to residents of Pinal County on Wednesday for not having enough in-person ballots. Over 20 precincts in the County ran low or were completely out of ballots prior to the polls closing.

No official cause as to why there was a shortage has been given, however, Pinal County officials believes high demand and printing errors may have been possible factors.

Voters in Arizona were growing restless because the Republican Primary for Governor candidate’s winner had still not been announced by Thursday afternoon.

“Two days after the Arizona primary, the governor’s race is still too close to call officially, although Republican primary voters have Kari Lake with a slight lead over Karrin Taylor Robson. It’s the highest profile of the remaining races yet to be determined,” AZ Central reported.

Maricopa County has announced that election results could be released on Thursday night, after having previously said that the results would be out on Wednesday. Kari Lake narrowly leads lawyer Karrin Taylor Robson in the vote count after polls closed on Tuesday.

Pennsylvania's Supreme Court on Tuesday supported the state’s addition to mail-in voting laws in a case brought by Republican state representatives who voted for the legislation in 2019.

"We find no restriction in our Constitution on the General Assembly's ability to create universal mail-in voting," wrote Justice Christine Donohue in the majority opinion.

The 5-2 ruling, with the two Republican justices, both voting no, means expanded vote-by-mail will likely be in place for marquee races in November for governor and U.S. Senate.

It's too close to call Arizona's Republican gubernatorial primary, with former TV news anchor Kari Lake leading real estate developer and Arizona Board of Regents member Karrin Taylor Robson by fewer than 12,000 votes.

As of Wednesday morning, Lake had 46.2% of the vote, and Taylor Robson had 44.5% in the Republican primary. The two women are seeking to succeed term-limited Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican.
