Now that Public Record Request (PRR) and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) data is becoming available to study, assimilate and investigate, it is crystal clear that the 2020 elections were far worse than anyone previously thought. I.e. it has now been admitted by Washington State County Elections Officials and County Prosecutors that 2020 Clear Ballot Voting Machine Web Activity Log Election Records were Entirely Deleted and not "backed up" in Benton, Clallam, Cowlitz, Ferry, Grant, Grays Harbor, King, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Snohomish and Whatcom Counties. The illegal deletions occurred between December 2020 and March 2021.
Additionally, the Election Assistance Commission requires voting systems and tabulation equipment to create a “real-time audit log” which records the events of an election. Read the EAC Decision on Request for Interpretation (Audit Logs) for details on what logging is required.
Clear Ballot and the WA State Counties say it was due to a "Software Upgrade” to each of their election machine systems. Now, after deletion, this means there is probably no way to verify if there was any "unauthorized access" to the voting machine equipment, data and the scan server, which holds the 2020 election vote counts.
The scan server is where vote tabulation data is stored, this would be a necessary reason to preserve these logs.
NOW THESE VERY IMPORTANT ELECTION RECORDS ARE COMPLETELY GONE FOR GOOD - SO WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE?
Web Activity Logs are also important because they show database records that would include an audit trail of changes, and any data source initiating a change like "attempted access," such as when someone tries to log-in with the wrong password, when new passwords are made, or if "access" was granted to new users, etc.
Access could also include when someone enables the “display vote totals” and if anyone accessed it from another machine within the election system, or externally.
If the scan server is accessed, those with access can view the vote count and there could be manipulation of the data in various forms.
Web Activity Logs show the events that occurred during the tabulation of the votes. In essence they are a link in the chain of custody to make sure that the election was secure.
Also, PRRs show WA State Counties that used Elections Systems & Software (ES & S), Hart InterCivic and Dominion Voting Systems had similar voting machine vendor software "upgrades" which illegally deleted important 2020 elections records (during the same time frames), without backing them up. i.e. Stevens and Franklin Counties are among them.
Cyber Security and Election Integrity Experts all agree that these types of computer logs and records are vital components of the election itself.
Watch Here at 13 min of Video 3-15-22 Nye County Commissioner meeting -- expert witness explains how election log files indicate how these voting systems are operating that are responsible for tabulating our votes, and if there was a hack or break-in, these are the files to determine if that existed.
There is absolutely no reason why Election Machine Web Activity Logs should be illegally deleted!
Most definitely more Washington State Counties will be added to this list as PRR information becomes available. OF NOTE: PRRs are now taking up to 6 months to get elections information. Hmmm.......
Other counties such as Pierce show that someone viewed the vote totals illegally. I.e. Pierce Web Activity Logs showed they viewed the vote totals Nov 3 (Election Day) at 6:01 PM. That would be considered tabulation. The state defines tabulation as making the vote totals readable by a human, not just a machine. So, they “tabulated” the votes before 8 PM on Election Day.
THIS VIOLATES RCW 29A.84.730:
(1) In any location in which ballots are counted, no person authorized by law to be present while votes are being counted may divulge any results of the count of the ballots at any time prior to 8 PM on the day of the primary or special or general election.
AND VIOLATES WAC 434-250-110: (6) Tabulation may begin after 8 PM on the day of the election.
Additionally, counties appear to have created and exported reports during the time they turned on the display vote totals before 8 PM on election day. This suggests they were potentially sharing this information, which is also against the law.
This was found in part of the Web Activity Logs data via PRR provided by counties who did not illegally delete these election records. It should help people understand why the many other WA State counties should have not deleted and at a minimum backed-up the logs prior to their update.
OR PERHAPS THIS EXPLAINS EXACTLY WHY THE VOTING MACHINE VENDORS AND COUNTIES COMPLETELY DELETED THESE ELECTION RECORDS.......
Because of the very serious nature of the above facts, attorneys are being consulted for potential WA State lawsuits.

Dinesh D'Souza's long awaited, and highly anticipated film, 2000 Mules, will present True the Vote's (TTV) video evidence of a controlled, funded, illegal ballot trafficking network across critical swing states including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Texas. Released May 2 - 8 in Theaters online. TTV spent $2 million to buy publicly available cell phone data that pinpoint an individual’s location to within a few inches. They then narrowed their search to targets that began visiting drop boxes and Non-profit organizations (NGOs) offices during the early voting weeks leading up to November 3rd, 2020. WATCH MOVIE HERE
RACKETEERING AND THE BALLOT LAUNDERING 'CARTEL'
TTV says in one city 242 traffickers made 5,662 trips to ballot drop boxes between the early morning hours of 12 AM and 5 AM, unloading hundreds of thousands of illegally harvested ballots. The ballot trafficking fraud begins with dirty voter rolls -- The cartel is feeding off and using the inflated voter lists, packed with invalid registrations.
Writer and Director D’Souza said he was impressed by the thoroughness of the data, the fact that it was “enough to tip the election” and “systematic, comprehensive, and well-presented enough” to convince any reasonable person. TTV has done their work in all the key states, and they focused on the heavily Democrat areas of Fulton County, Georgia, Maricopa County, Arizona, the Detroit area of Michigan, the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin, and the greater Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania.
WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE THEY COULD HAVE FOUND IF THEY HAD THE RESOURCES?
“There’s no question in any of these states that we are witnessing illegal activity,” D’Souza said. “Even in areas where [vote harvesting] was temporarily allowed… in no area was it legal to be paid to deliver votes. I think this is going to be huge and make a huge difference, but it begins with simply getting the truth out there so that what happened in 2020 becomes undeniable.”
"Furthermore, many of these mules are coming from non-profit centers, which are 501(c)(3) organizations, which means they are prohibited from election activities. These are people that have a tax exemption from the IRS conditioned upon them not getting directly involved in electioneering… You’re seeing a coordinated ring of corruption and the evidence for it is decisive. Also, several of the non-profits were “closely aligned with Stacey Abrams."
TTV says "the illegal Stacey Abrams-Mark Elias consent decree pushed GA SOS Raffensperger to send ballots to both active and inactive voters. The rolls hadn’t been cleaned in two years. We now know that ineligible voter records contributed to 75,000 of the votes in the General and 45,000 votes in the 2021 run-off in Georgia.
IF ELECTIONS ARE NOT TRULY FAIR, WE'RE NOT TRULY FREE
"As the ‘2,000 Mules’ movie will show, we have informants who came forward to describe exactly what happened, these collectors and mules are making $10 - $40 a ballot in Arizona, according to the testimony we have. In Yuma County, AZ the cartel’s days may be numbered, there were two ballot harvesting arrests in Yuma and we believe there will be more."
"The solution has 'four pillars' - We Must:
1. Clean the voter rolls. True the Vote has set up a website, www.iv3.us, that helps citizens review their voter rolls and challenge inaccurate records.
2. Stop mail-in voting and abolish the drop boxes.
3. Eliminate private funding of elections.
4. Impose punishments that fit the crimes. Put people in jail, if you put somebody in jail for 10 years for this, you’ll stop it.” Said TTV

ARIZONA: Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake and SOS Mark Finchem File AZ Lawsuit to remove Electronic Voting Machines -- Official statement reads: "The plaintiffs have a constitutional and statutory right to have ballots counted accurately and transparently, so that only legal votes determine the winners of each office contested in the Midterm Election.”
“Election voting machines cannot be deemed reliably secure and do not meet the constitutional and statutory mandates to guarantee a free and fair election. The use of untested and unverified election voting machines violates the rights of the plaintiffs and their fellow voters and office seekers, and it undermines public confidence in the validity of election results.”
Lake and Finchem have voiced their support for election reform in Arizona throughout their campaigns, pointing to the countless reports of election fraud that have surfaced in both Maricopa County and Pima County and the rest of the nation.
Both are calling for the decertification of the 2020 presidential election results in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania amid thousands of staggering fraud reports, saying “The election  was a sham, just as the government cannot insist on ‘trust me,’ so too, private companies that perform governmental functions, such as vote counting, cannot be trusted without verification.”
Lake said, "if AZ AG Mike Brnovich fails to defend election integrity for the midterm election, it will sink him."
Whistleblowers Expose Arizona’s Ballot Trafficking ‘Mafia." Two men in Yuma County, David Lara and Gary Snyder, took down a San Luis ballot trafficking operation using undercover cameras during the 2020 primary election. Their evidence, which was presented to Arizona AG Mark Brnovich, resulted in felony forgery and conspiracy charges filed against Guillermina Fuentes, a member of the San Luis School District Board.
"In Yuma County, election rigging through ballot harvesting has been going on for 22 years. It is a professional criminal organization. These are not amateurs, these are people that have been doing it for many, many years, it is well structured… Rudy Giuliani would have been perfect for this investigation because it mirrors the mafia, the Italian mafia in New York. It has ranks, has different levels of infrastructure, they have different levels of authority, and it trickles all the way up to the top. And when I say all the way to the top, I'm talking about state and federal levels." Said Lara

* At least 107 ballot traffickers were identified in the state. MORE HERE
Wisconsin Hearing Emails Show Democrat Operatives Coordinating with City Election Officials The Wisconsin Assembly hosted two back-to-back hearings showing aggressive coordination between Democrat operatives and city and state election officials in the months running up to the Nov. 2020 election. Voter rolls and election abuse were the expressed subjects of the hearings. However, the real story here is the evidence showing the alleged influence of Democrat groups like the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) in what has been called the Wisconsin 5 (WI5)—the five key cities in Wisconsin that helped Biden win his narrow margin of around 20,000 votes.
Rep. Brandtjen, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, led the hearing to discuss issues associated with the ongoing 2020 election fraud investigation by former Justice Michael Gableman and evidence from other sources like the Wisconsin Elections Administration Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) Report.
The hearing revealed a series of emails obtained through PRR showing various organizations, including Mark Zuckerberg’s CTCL, were allowed to hijack many of the mechanisms used for get-out-the-vote (GOTV) initiatives. The coordination targeting Democrat voters was made possible because of nearly $9 million in Zuckerberg funding. Article

Rural Nevada counties reconsidering Dominion for elections, return to paper ballots, hand-counting. Esmeralda County commissioners voted to ask their county clerk to administer all future county elections using strictly paper ballots and hand-counting, the latest Nevada county to attempt to overhaul election administration in response to the controversial 2020 election. The vote marks the second major shift away from electronic voting machines in rural Nevada. Nye and Esmeralda counties could soon be joined by another rural jurisdiction, Lyon County, where commissioners are set to discuss a similar proposal. Commissioners in two other counties, Elko and Lincoln, have also expressed a desire to move away from Dominion Voting Systems. Article
NORTH CAROLINA: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) released a research brief detailing errors in North Carolina’s voter rolls. These errors must be fixed before the 2022 elections, which include a U.S. Senate race that may be very close. The Foundation’s analysis of the voter rolls found that 7,933 North Carolinians were still registered to vote long after death in 2020. Some of these deceased registrants have been on the voter rolls for decades. The state’s voter rolls are also filled with tens of thousands of duplicate registrations. The Foundation found 42,984 North Carolinians were registered in another state before the 2020 election. Additionally, 13,525 North Carolinians managed to become registered twice under variations of their name. This is extremely concerning as the state moves toward expanding vote by mail because these registrants would receive multiple ballots. Article

GEORGIA: Judge: 2020 Election Records in Key Georgia County Must Be Preserved Indefinitely The lawsuit was filed by former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), who lost a 2021 runoff election and is currently running as a Republican for governor in Georgia, late last year. Perdue says there were thousands of “unlawfully marked” mail-in ballots in Fulton County and "you can’t look forward without learning from the past, I’m not trying to relitigate the 2020 election, but what I am trying to do is find the people who broke the law and bring them to justice. That’s why I went to court in November. That’s why I’m going to court now.” Article
A key integrity provision to unseal GA election ballots was blocked by Gov. Brian Kemp who prevented the Senate from confirming House changes to SB89 which included language to unseal Georgia election ballots and improve ballot chain of custody. SB89 language would have allowed counterfeit ballots to be detected and electronic votes to be verified. Those provisions are essential to deter fraud in upcoming elections.
Legislators made ballot images public records in 2021 but a year-long, statewide VoterGA analysis found it impossible to use them to verify the 2020 election results. VoterGA produced a 15-point analysis that revealed electronic tampering in over 500,000 ballot images prior to certification. Another study determined well over a million ballots across 70 counties were lost or destroyed despite federal and state retention law. Experts previously concluded in court that all of the nearly 5 million images stored have inadequate resolution to authenticate the corresponding ballots. Counterfeit ballots were discovered in the Nov. 2020 Fulton County hand count audit by four senior poll managers and two audit monitors.
While many Republican governors and state legislatures across the country are trying to expose and fix the blatant fraud and corruption by secure upcoming 2022 and 2024 elections, Dem and RINO controlled states are keeping / making it easy to cheat. This is noteworthy because both the GA SOS and Gov. are fighting a bill that would add positive changes to elections. Article

10 - 15 POINT SHIFT TOWARDS GOP - Republicans Notch Nationwide Huge Wins in 2022 Mid-term Elections! Midterm watchers' eyes were on local elections in several states to see what could be gleaned ahead of the year's primary elections and November's general election set to determine which party controls Congress beginning in 2023. In 2021 and 2022 local elections in states such as Wisconsin, Republican enthusiasm significantly outpaced Democrats in several of those and other local races where Conservative candidates unseated Democrat incumbents.
"Voters across the country cast their ballots for Republicans and our proven agenda, rejecting Biden and Democrats’ collapsing agenda," RNC Spokesperson Emma Vaughn said. "The Republican National Committee worked hand in glove with our state parties to deliver resounding victories for Republican candidates up-and-down the ballot."

Dr Shiva’s Lawsuit Against Big Tech! In 2020 Dr. Shiva ran in the Massachusetts Republican Primaries for U.S. Senate; just before the general election, it was noticed that he had won in what appeared to be a landslide, but ONLY in the counties that hand counted their ballots. But in all the counties that used machines, he lost!
Hmm.....Obviously, he wanted some answers, so he went directly to the Secretary of State to request the ballot images, and take a look at exactly what happened.
However, the SOS’s office replied, “WE DELETED THEM" and they didn’t have the ballot images which they were required to retain by law! Shiva went ahead and exposed the email communications between the SOS office and himself on Twitter. At the time, he had roughly 250k followers. Then he was banned instantly off social media in the middle of his campaign the minute he showed emails between he, and a public official admitting to breaking the law.

Thank you, Federal Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle of Florida, for following the law and ending the unconstitutional Biden mask mandates on planes and trains! Both airline employees and passengers deserve to have misery end. It took a while to move through the courts but finally science, common sense, facts, truth, and freedom reign. BY BROWNSTONE INSTITUTE: The Mask Mandate Is Illegal: Quotes from the District Court Judgment. [Read the full decision or read the science on masks]
The transportation mask mandate-imposed January 21, 2021, as part of 100 days of masking to crush the virus, and that has ruled transportation throughout the country for well more than one year, has been struck down in Federal Court: Health Freedom Defense Fund, Inc. vs. Joseph R. Biden, Case No: 8:21-cv-1693-KKM-AEP, Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle presiding and writing the opinion.
This means that for all this time, passengers and transportation employees have been forced to follow a mandate, enforced with criminal penalties, that has been illegal. Countless millions have been threatened, victimized, hectored, barked at, thrown off buses, trains, and planes – with even young children forcibly muzzled as their parents are denounced – when in fact, it has been the federal government itself that has been violating the law.
Alaska, American, Southwest, Delta, and United Airlines all immediately announced that they would no longer enforce the mask mandate to the loud cheers of passengers, all this following 16 months of brutal unconstitutional edicts now declared to be illegal. Article
Last year, WA State Dems passed two gas tax policies: Cap and Trade and Low Carbon Fuel Standards - two policies that Republicans have nicknamed “Cap and Tax” and “High-Cost Fuel Standards.” Can you afford 30 - 40 cents more a gal.? Republicans tried to bring a bill to the floor this year that would have suspended the gas tax for the rest of the year SB 5897.
Socialist / Dems are very clear about why your gas prices are higher. Their stated goal is to get you out of your personal gas-powered vehicle by 2030. The goal is clearly laid out in the Transportation Budget this year. All new cars registered in WA State after 2030 must be electric vehicles (EV).
Most people are aware of the negative consequences of forcing everyone to have an EV: they are much more expensive than a regular car, recharging can take considerable time when having to travel longer distances, the parts make the vehicles more expensive to repair, the electrical grid will have to be upgraded at great expense, and the materials required to make the batteries and other electronics are sourced from China and Russia. Also, with skyrocketing inflation a big concern is for those who will be forced to pay the price and who can least afford it. Article
WA state on pace for more than 50k vehicle thefts in 2022: When state Dems passed a bill preventing cops from pursuing car thieves expect a spike in stolen vehicles. State stats show there were 26,520 vehicles stolen in 2020 and 31,032 in 2021. The state is on pace to end with more than 50,000 this year and law enforcement leaders say recent legislation is stifling them from stopping it.
The Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs (WASPC) released data showing the spike in vehicle theft crimes since January 2019. These stats say 2022 has seen an 88 % increase compared to 2021 through the end of March, with March 2022 having a 99 % increase from last year. WASPC also noted vehicle thefts have increased 93 % since new laws went into effect at the end of July 2021. It claims the legislation is a direct cause of the rise in crime. Article

When a court rules that a tax is “ideclared unconstitutional and invalid and, therefore, is void and inoperable as a matter of law,” what happens next? When it comes to income taxes in WA, it's full speed ahead. Article

An Edmonds school district is facing backlash for an online handout given to elementary school students teaching them about gender identity, including the idea that people can be "neither" or "both" genders. Images of the assignment given to first graders in the Edmonds School District (ESD) were posted to social media by a concerned parent last month.
The assignment appeared to outline how gender can be broken down into three categories: a "girl," a "boy," and "neither or both." The assignment also asked students to “create a snowperson that is an example of how you identify yourself,” asking them to then explain their choice.
For kindergartners, the state’s health education standards on “self-identity” outline how kindergartners should “understand there are many ways to express gender.” The standards further explain that first graders should learn to “explain that there are many ways to express gender.”
Sanzi said the parents she's spoken to are absolutely “stunned” by the lessons.
“They can't believe that what they're seeing is actually happening with their first graders. They're alarmed that they weren't aware of it. And then they're also angry and frustrated that they're being forced now to engage in conversations that their kids are blindsiding them with because suddenly their kids are coming home and talking about their confusion about their gender," said Sanzi.
Screenshots of the lessons also show endorsing children’s books, including one introducing the students “to the nonbinary experience." Another book related to gender pronouns says “break down assumptions of who is ‘she’ or ‘he’ and expand beyond the binary to include ‘they’ and more.” Article / Video.

The radical WA State legislature leftists, passed a new bill that will outlaw the sale, purchase, and registration of all-gas vehicles that are model year 2030 or newer, regardless of if they are publicly or privately owned. The only vehicles eligible for sale and registration will be all-electric cars. The law also creates an “interagency electric vehicle coordinating council,” which will oversee vehicular regulations for this program.
From the text of SB 5974: All publicly owned and privately owned passenger and light duty vehicles of model year 2030 or later that are sold, purchased, or registered in Washington state be electric vehicles. WA Dems are attempting to get rid of gas-powered cars by 2030. Their solution? Buy an electric car. This is not practical if you live in a rural area, are on a fixed income, or live in poverty.
What’s purposefully ignored, by these disconnected Socialists is the fact that electric vehicles are an expensive luxury that many Americans cannot afford, especially with the skyrocketing inflation and decimated economy following the lockdowns. The average price of a new electric car is $50,000, and that’s before Biden continue to wreck the global markets and cause prices to skyrocket further.
WA Democrats plan to increase fuel prices another $1/gal (HB 1091 & SB 5216) on top of nearly 40% inflation for fuel. Republicans say cancel these plans and lower fuel prices instead (SB 5897). #waleg #UnaffordableWA #UntrustworthyWA

Billionaire business magnate Elon Musk, who bought Twitter intends to make the platform a bastion for free speech, pushed back against those on the left. Musk Tweeted: "The extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all," By 'free speech', I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people." Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama responded, noting that Musk is "destroying their echo chamber that they believed was real life…and they’re not happy."
Elon Musk Says Democratic Party Has Been ‘Hijacked by Extremists’ - On Thursday, Musk posted a meme image that showed a timeline from 2008 to 2021. The picture showed both conservatives and liberals were near the center of the political spectrum, with Musk depicting himself slightly to the left of the center.
But over the next 13 years, the meme shows, Musk is seen remaining near the center while the right remains the same. The liberal figure, which is seen running to the left, then is seen at the extreme left portion of the spectrum while Musk is now on the conservative side.
Musk also wrote “the far-left hates everyone, themselves included. Twitter should remain neutral and said left-wing users are the ones who are primarily attacking him online."
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she'd like to invite Elon Musk to Capitol Hill. Greene, whose Twitter account has been gone since January, said she'd "assemble a group of 'brilliant' people to converse with Musk" and "we don't need to be told what we can and can't say online by nutcases in San Francisco or other places."

Widespread reporting of COVID-19 vaccine injuries, unlike with any other kind of vaccine: A 15-year-old girl who took one shot of the BioNTech, Pfizer vaccine was experiencing brain fog the next day. The smart, diligent young student received the COVID vaccine dose Sept. 28, and the next day she felt exhausted, could not concentrate, and nothing seemed to be able to register in her mind. Oct. 11, she went to the library, and it wasn’t long before she went home instead, in tears. She told us that she couldn’t remember anything, all the thoughts were far away, distanced and blocked. She felt like her brain was broken and she was no longer in control of herself. Since then, she even has difficulty smiling and is often depressed. Article

Government imposed Marxism has reached a crucial point -- California State Dems now going after children by putting them under control of the state. With CA SB 866 it lowers the age of consent to children as young as 12 years of age to get a FDA approved vaccine without (despite lack of consent) consent of their parents. Other unconsitutional bills include: SB 1390 violation of free speech, government decides censorship prohibits a social media platforms. SB 920 authorizes unelected medical boards of "consent investigators" to inspect the medical records and offices of doctors and physicians without asking patients consent, all to control how your doctor is treating you as a patient. And SB 1464 threatens law enforcement if they don't fully enforce unconstitutional CA dictates, then they will lose their funding.
Washington is the first state in the nation to mandate that new commercial and multi-family construction be outfitted with all-electric space heating and hot water systems. The move to all-electric is part of Inslee’s clean energy agenda to combat "climate change." Saying “This is not debatable. we have to make the transition, or we’re not going to have a livable Washington state.”
Dan Kirschner, executive director of the Northwest Gas Association, said Inslee is using scare tactics to push his agenda. “It’s Inslee’s latest war on energy choice and energy affordability, all in the name of climate action, the governor’s negative characterization of natural gas was “out of bounds. Full electrification, which is what Inslee wants – would negatively impact affordability."
Peter Godlewski, director of government affairs for energy, environment, and water at Association of Washington Business (AWB), agrees saying, “Natural gas remains an efficient and reliable energy source for many Washington businesses and consumers,” he said in an email to The Center Square. “Estimates by Seattle City Light and the Seattle Department of Constructions and Inspections show that installing a heat pump (the alternative allowed by the code proposals) adds anywhere from $3,000 to $22,000 (building size and height dependent, higher and larger buildings require larger and more expensive units) to the cost of each apartment. As Washington struggles with housing affordability, we need policies that make houses more affordable, not less. That means higher costs across the board."
Daily Wire investing $100M to battle ‘woke’ Disney. The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s conservative-leaning media company, says it will invest $100 million in children’s content as part of a plan to create an alternative to the “woke” Walt Disney Company. “Americans are tired of giving their money to woke corporations who hate them,” said The Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing. “They’re tired of giving their money to woke media companies who want to indoctrinate their children with radical race and gender theory.” “But they want to do more than just cancel them.

How States Can Unleash School Choice: As states continue to experience historic drops in school enrollment, it’s becoming clear that parents are frustrated with America’s K–12 public schools. As a result, support for school choice is at an all-time high. Yet despite a banner year for the school-choice movement in 2021, state spending on school-choice programs such as vouchers, education savings accounts, and tax-credit scholarships consists of less than 0.5 % of budgets. More than 30 states are considering school-choice legislation this session, unlocking millions more dollars for families to spend on private educational services and are looking to the work of Milton Friedman: the economist who inspired the modern school-choice movement.

A Los Angeles court determined that a California law requiring certain workplace boardroom quotas of underrepresented communities is unconstitutional. Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in early October 2020 arguing that any spending of taxpayer funds or taxpayer-paid resources on the quota law is “illegal under the California Constitution.” The lawsuit was filed days after Gavin Newsom signed it into law. The measure required publicly traded companies to have a minimum of one director from an “underrepresented community” on its board by the end of last year and potentially more such directors by the end of 2022.
According to the law, a “director from an underrepresented community” refers to “an individual who identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, Alaska Native, gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.” Article

BIDEN’S IRAN DEAL: Joe Biden is working on a deal with the world's leading sponsor of terrorism, Iran, that is being co-brokered by Putin and the Chinese Communist Party. This deal would pave the way for Tehran to develop nuclear weapons and also supercharge its violence across the Middle East!! After months of discussion, the Biden administration is on the verge of reaching an agreement with Iran to replace the joint comprehensive plan of action, signed by Obama in 2015. President Trump pulled America out of insane deal in 2018. In Obama’s deal with Tehran—he gave this leading sponsor of terrorism $1.7 Billion in cash and another $150 Billion in sanctions relief. Great for Iran / TERRIBLE FOR AMERICA AND THE FREE WORLD! The proposed replacement under Biden is much worse! This arrangement was orchestrated by Russian and Chinese Intermediaries. It would be a financial windfall for Tehran. It would lift Trump-era sanctions and release Billions of dollars in assets that were frozen by the U.S. and our allies. Iran could get up to $130 Billion.

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A MAJOR SPIRITUAL BATTLE AND HOLY WAR. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group of atheists, filed a complaint on behalf of a “concerned parent.” It appears a godless heathen took offense by prayers delivered at two local high schools.
“Our complainant reports that their child has been made to feel uncomfortable because they don’t share the same religious beliefs as most of the other students at their school,” read the complaint letter. The Freedom from Religion Foundation says that the Supreme Court has ruled any invocation delivered over a public address system is unconstitutional — including prayers delivered by students. “Public schools are a neutral place. They should be neutral about religion,” said attorney Chris Line.
The out-of-town atheists said Christian prayers recited over a public address system are illegal. The school board consulted with their attorneys and decided it would be best to stop the prayers.
“The superintendent met with school principals and the administration will not allow prayer at school-sponsored events, including football games,” read a letter from the district’s attorney to the out-of-town atheists. Cowards, all! Article
Lacrosse Team Banned from Wearing ‘Pray for Peace’ Shirts. The girl’s lacrosse team at Blacksburg High School in Virginia wanted to honor their coach, who had spent ten summers volunteering in Ukrainian orphanages. So, the girls had t-shirts made that a simple, but profound message: “Pray for Peace.”
The young student athletes had no idea the t-shirts would land them on the frontline of a raging religious liberty battle. Montgomery County Public Schools sent every team member an email ordering them to never again wear the shirts. Ever.
“The Girls Lacrosse Team is no longer permitted to wear the Pray for Peace t-shirts at home or away events as warm up gear,” the email read. “The message conveyed by the shirts can be interpreted as religious and political in nature.”
The school district said the shirts were too religious and too political. A double-whammy.
Parent Clare Levison said the girls offered to replace the word “pray” with the word “PLAY” However, that compromise was rejected.
And the school’s librarian was ordered to remove a display sign that featured books about Eastern Europe. The sign read, “Stand for peace.”
“Apparently, the administration of Montgomery County Public Schools wishes to remain neutral on praying, playing or even standing for peace,” Levison said. “Pray for Peace is not a religious statement that requires separation of church and state, it is one that all presidents in power, regardless of political party, reference on a regular basis.” Article

DEMOCRATS: THE PARTY OF THE MASK - Why Is CDC Trying to Put a Mask on Your Face Again? -- It’s a tactic for evil regimes, ferret out the enemy and try to make them go away. The Biden administration wanted masks and the CDC imposed them, including with criminal penalties. But let’s be clear about something. It’s about masks but more. The mask is a metaphor for all the controls, restrictions, impositions, mandates, closures, and resulting wreckage of the past two years. People hate them because they are so personal. More precisely, they are depersonalizing, which is precisely how the lockdown period of American history has felt the entire time.
We are our faces, to others and ourselves. Take that away and what are we? We are tools. We are pawns. We are lab rats for their experiments. Masks are dehumanizing because they are supposed to be. The mask has a very long history as a tool of subjection and enslavement. We all know this intuitively. Can anyone point to the part of the Constitution that gives the CDC authority over our lives?

Sen. Cruz defends state bans on CRT, gender ideology. Ted Cruz rejected the claim that anti-CRT might be interpreted to exclude the teaching of widely recognized historical facts about racism, slavery, and the civil-rights movement. “Anyone who interpreted these state statutes to mean that they ban the teaching of Martin Luther King and other foundational civil-rights leaders would be imbecilic,” Cruz went on to cite the New York Times’ 1619 Project, which has been adapted for use in K–12 in schools, as an example of inaccurate, politically charged curricula that’s overtaking American public education. "No teacher has a First Amendment right to teach his or her children that two plus two is five. Even if it’s a free-speech matter, if you’re a math teacher and you teach your students that you should be fired,” he said. “Lying to children and teaching them things that are fundamentally false is not the role of education.” Article

Biden creates exception to let illegal migrants into U.S. early. Joe Biden has ordered Border Patrol agents to begin allowing illegal migrants into the country by granting them multiple exemptions to the current health regulation. A memo identified a half dozen ports of entry (POEs) where exceptions can be granted and a broad range of conditions that qualify for the exemptions. Under the new rules, if a single member of a family qualifies for the exception, in most cases the entire family can come into the country legally. Border Patrol agents were horrified.
Democrats lose Hispanic, blue-collar voters at same time. A Quinnipiac poll published last week found Hispanic voters disapproved of Joe Biden’s job performance more than any other racial group, with just 12% of Hispanics saying they “approve strongly” of how he is handling the office.
Professor who wouldn't use trans student's pronouns wins $400K settlement: A public university in Ohio agreed last week to pay one of its professors $400,000 after it rebuked him for refusing to use a transgender student's preferred pronouns.
Shawnee State University, in Portsmouth, roughly 85 miles south of Columbus, warned Nicholas Meriwether, a philosophy professor, in 2018 about not using the pronouns.
In response, Meriwether, who is an evangelical Christian, filed a federal lawsuit against the university that year, contending that officials violated his constitutional rights by compelling him to speak in a way that contradicts his religious beliefs. The settlement of the case follows a 3-year legal battle, with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in Meriwether’s favor. Article

WA Judge removes “excise tax” and "income tax" from I-1929 (capital gains income tax repeal) ballot title. The I-1929 capital gains income tax repeal ballot title challenge had the A.G. change the ballot title language by removing the prior usage of “excise tax.” It now says “7% tax on annual capital gains” while the I-1929 campaign wanted “7% tax on individuals with annual capital gains income.” As noted by the Tri-City Herald, (beyond the fact that an Inslee appointed judge recently ruled a capital gains tax is an income tax, not an excise tax):
“Washington citizens have a long history of voting down efforts to impose a statewide income tax — and that explains why the dispute over the title and description of Initiative 1929 is such a big deal. Framing is everything . . . Ever since SB 5096 was approved largely along party-lines last year, obstacles have popped up to prevent citizens from weighing in on this important tax measure. Those lawmakers who are sure a capital gains tax is right for Washington state should focus on making their case — not thwarting a public vote.”
But of no surprise the judge agreed with the AG. During her ruling, the Thurston County Superior Court judge said it's appropriate to avoid using "excise tax" or "income tax" when describing the tax. Humorous that the judge said in the summary the capital gains tax is based on an individual's federal income tax return since that is exactly what the bill says. "’Federal net long-term capital gain’ means the net long-term capital gain reportable for federal income tax purposes." Article
