Nikki Haley’s campaign at this point is mostly being supported by 5,200 wealthy Democrats who hope to defeat Trump in the GOP primary, knowing full well a Haley candidacy will lose to the Democrat since she is effectively running as one. 1,600 of these Democrats gave Haley over half a million dollars in January of this year alone.
That point is brought through by this quote from one of her biggest Democrat “supporters,” LinkedIn billionaire Reid Hoffman, who said, “While I am a staunch supporter of Biden and hope he will win a second term, I also provided financial support to Nikki Haley’s super PAC [because] my first priority is to defeat Trump, and the [Republican] primary is the first of two chances to do so.”
Nimarata ‘Nikki’ Haley’s failing presidential campaign is being bankrolled by over 5,200 former donors to Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, lending credence to Donald Trump’s contention that she is only remaining in the race to try and damage him ahead of the general election.
The Biden donors underwriting Haley include 1,600 people who donated over $500,000 in January alone — her biggest month for donations ever, despite the fact she was crushed by Trump in Iowa, where she placed third, and New Hampshire.
Previously, the former United Nations ambassador received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Reid Hoffman, the LinkedIn billionaire and visitor to Epstein Island who has also bankrolled E. Jean Carroll and Russia hoaxers Fusion GPS.
On January 24th 2024, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement, concerning the right of the State of Texas to defend itself from invasion, because – quoting from the statement – the Federal Government as a body and specifically, the administration of President Joe Biden, have broken the Compact between the Several States and the Federal Government (the foundational concept that underpins the notion of the “United States of America”) by not simply pointedly and openly declining to defend the nation from a literal “invasion” at the southern border, but in actively taking measures to prevent the State of Texas from defending itself.
Abbott specifically cited the Biden administration failing to fulfill its duties under Article IV § 4 of the Constitution, which has now required Abbott, as Governor, to invoke Article 1 § 10 Clause 3 of the Constitution requiring him to take measures to defend the state.
This statement was issued on the heels of a frankly stunning decision by the United States Supreme Court on January 22nd, which allowed the US Border Patrol to remove razor wire barricades emplaced by Texas National Guard troops assigned to defend Texas’ border with Mexico along the Rio Grande River. In effect, the Supreme Court sided with the Biden administration in suborning an invasion of the United States.
The massive influx of illegal aliens is a subject we have discussed here previously. The fairest “neutral” assessment of the impact of illegal immigration comes from, of all places, Wikipedia:
However, given the reactions of “sanctuary cities” – most of them longtime strongholds of the Democrat Party – to having waves of “migrants” dumped (waves that are not even comparable to the numbers being dumped on Texas) on their doorsteps, not just by Republican-led states such as Texas and Florida, but by the Federal Government itself, it is clear that the staggering numbers are having an immediate, clear and disproportionate impact on the nation (leaving aside said migrants frequently complaining bitterly about the aid and shelter they are given, including appeals to citizens to house illegal aliens in churches and private homes).
In response to Governor Abbott’s January 24th statement, many politicians have begun to hysterically demand that President Biden federalize the Texas National Guard to halt the Texas program to stem the flow of illegal migrants, and to restrict them to using the legal crossing points, and to follow the established legal processes.
This situation (which has been building for well over a decade as of this writing), and the breathless demands to invoke the Insurrection Act to stop Texas’ actions, has brought the nation perilously close to an actual “civil war”, for the first time since 1860. This is because, as of this writing, some twenty-five state Governors have definitively stated their support of Governor Abbott and the state of Texas.
Actually federalizing a state’s National Guard against the wishes of their state’s governor has been done before, famously in 1957 in Arkansas in regards to the “Little Rock Nine”. A popular misconception is that a state’s National Guard cannot be federalized without that state’s governor consenting to the mobilization. As demonstrated in Arkansas, this is patently untrue.
This latter campaign was hampered by American volunteers – who had been enlisted for a period of two years – insisting on being sent home after the conclusion of the war against Spain. As those who had volunteered specifically for the war against Spain were technically still a part of the Militia of the United States, they could not be required to serve longer than the conclusion of the war unless they specifically volunteered to do so.
This manpower issue came from Article 1, § 8, Clause 15 of the “Militia Clauses” (which includes Clause 16 of the same Article and Section) of the Constitution, which strictly limits the call-up and use of the Militia to executing “…the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions…” As a result, the United States quickly found itself significantly hampered in the Philippines by not having enough troops.
The “Dick Act” was written specifically to bypass the restrictions of the “Militia Clauses”, in order to create a new military entity in the form of the National Guard (and later, the Air National Guard). In effect, the “Dick Act” created a type of reserve formation for the US Army (before the creation of the actual “Army Reserve”), which (ultimately) would be equipped and trained by the US Army, but which be paid for by the states, who would also be allowed to use the military formations within the state, at the discretion of its governor. However, if the Federal government decided that they needed to mobilize the National Guard, they could do so at any time…whether a governor agrees with the Federal government or not, as was demonstrated in 1957, in Arkansas.
In the context of the hysterical demands of partisan political hacks, this would mean that President Biden would have to declare the State of Texas to be in rebellion against the United States – something that has only happened once in United States history – in order to force the Texas National Guard to disregard the orders of its state Commander in Chief in the face of an active invasion of their state.
Stop, and consider that implication.
If President Biden were to take such an ill-advised action, that would place the Texas National Guard in the position of obeying either the Federal Government – and allowing a massive invasion of their home state by massive numbers of “military-age males” who certainly did not walk north from homes in Mexico, or Central or South America, because “economic asylum seekers” do not buy airplane tickets from Africa to Mexico, in order to walk north…
…Conversely, the Texas National Guard could refuse orders to federalize. This would constitute “Mutiny”, under Article 94 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ, the legal code of the US armed forces), at the very least. This would place the Federal government in the position of having to arrest up to 19,000 peopleen masse.
In like manner, there would then be the question of the reactions of the various states and governors who have expressed their solidarity with Governor Abbott’s actions…
This perilous situation is the ultimate outcome of decades of neglect, political pandering and the abject failure of successive Federal governments to execute the most basic of their duties, duties that the Several States voluntarily allowed the Federal Government to maintain authority for, as a condition of their joining the Federal Union in 1789. Leaving aside the obtuse legalities of this situation, the reality is that the American Left – led primarily by the Democrat Party – has driven the nation to a potential breakpoint, where the States may well declare the sitting Federal Government to no longer be a legitimate body. Such an action could go in several directions, none of them good, and all of them highly dangerous.
And while pundits and armchair-warrior-gamers may believe the nearly incoherent ramblings of President Biden, the reality is that the United States military and law enforcement establishments are not able to enforce any nationwide martial law order; in fact, it is questionable if they could enforce such an order over any large metropolitan area, given what happened the last time Federal troops were deployed under “Operation Garden Plot” was engaged.
…In the end, this writer has no solution to this problem, other than telling the Federal government to do its job in securing the borders of the United States, which it has consistently failed to do for over forty years.
The alternatives are not desired by any sane person.
If you can’t beat them, ban them. At least that’s what the Secretary of State of Maine has decided when she unilaterally decided to remove the leading candidate for President of the United States in 2024 from the Maine ballot. As Trump is booted from ballot, he is restored in another, the Colorado ballot, pending the SCOTUS appeal.
Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows made her decision based on the 14th Amendment, which bans “insurrectionists” from running for President. The major unconstitutional problem with her unhinged, seditious decision is Trump has never been charged with, let alone convicted of, “insurrection.” If anything, she joins the Colorado Supreme Court in committing an overt insurrectionist action, seeking to remove a candidate from the ballot purely to prevent them from winning in 2024. GO DEEPER
She attempted to cover up for her public declaration that she no longer operates under the American rule of law, but instead is attempting to overthrow the republic and replace it with a one-party totalitarian state, saying, “I do not reach this conclusion lightly. Democracy is sacred … I am mindful that no Secretary of State has ever deprived a presidential candidate of ballot access based on Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment. I am also mindful, however, that no presidential candidate has ever before engaged in insurrection.”
Donald Trump has not engaged in insurrection, for the record, nor has he been charged or convicted of such an action. This woman should be immediately be removed from office, arrested, and charged with sedition and high crimes and misdemeanors against the American republic.
As the state’s Attorney General, Aaron Frey, belongs to the party of sedition, the Democratic Party, this insurrectionist Secretary is not going to have to worry about facing the charges she should be facing.
Over the objections of the seditious members of the DNC-CCP still serving on the council a GOP-majority city council in California voted to remove all wokeness from the government, including holding events that glorified far left activism, like Pride Month, Black History Month, etc. The city is Huntington Beach. It will replace these events with events highlighting the history of the country, the state, and the city.
The events the city supports will not include any that showcases identity politics, or any political agenda at all.
As California City News (CCN) reports, “The Huntington Beach City Council voted Tuesday [12/19] to repeal and rescind the city’s celebration of Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Pride Month, and other months recognizing diversity and heritage” (read: other months encouraging division and balkanization).
“Instead, the city council will adopt a new 12-month celebratory history schedule developed by a panel of appointed members,” CCN continues. “The new agenda would ‘be free of any identity politics and political agendas,’ according to a city staff report.”
“‘I’ve been amazed to learn just how much of our rich history I was unaware of,’ said Councilman Casey McKeon from the dais on Tuesday night,” commenting on the history schedule, relates Voice of OC. “‘We wanted to focus on 12 themes a year instead of dozens to help city staff get on the same page.’”
The vote to remove wokeness from the city’s agenda went down party lines, with the DNC-CCP members voting against the measure, desperately seeking to hold on to the anti-American ideology they place over the American republic itself. Wherever Democrats have power, America’s rule of law suffers.
Let us pray the GOP members of this council hold on to power and the DNC-CCP members continue to be rightly voted out. There is no place in the American republic for “democrats” anymore.
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to expedite considering the immunity of Donald K Trump from the type of prosecution he faces from lawfare assassin and hired DNC-CCP gun Jack Smith, meaning the trials strategically activated by the lawfare assassins and their DNC-CCP-owned judges to interfere with Trump’s ability to campaign against Mass Mailer President Joe Biden will not happen.
Instead, the Trump team can delay these trials most likely until after the election while the issue of his immunity works its way through the appeals court process until it eventually reaches the Supreme Court.
NBC News made this claim in their article covering this decision, “Steering clear of a political firestorm for now, the Supreme Court said Friday it would not immediately decide the key question of whether Donald Trump has broad immunity for actions he took as president challenging his 2020 election loss.”
This, of course, is not the case, and it makes the reader believe the court hasn’t made a strong political statement in its ruling, which, of course, it has. The decision throws a monkey wrench into the lawfare assassin’s plans to interfere with the 2024 election using trial schedules to do so.
This writer believes SCOTUS knows full well the actions by the lawfare assassins and their collusionist judges do not meet basic constitutional requirements. Their ruling portends their eventual ruling, but they want to make sure before they make such a monumental ruling that the arguments for and against have been fully flushed out so that there is no doubt as to the legal efficacy of a SCOTUS ruling to come that will essentially blunt the most potentially damaging lawfare assaults on the former President.
Of course, NBC, a content marketing company for the DNC-CCP, and overt seditionist against the American republic, isn’t giving up hope that SCOTUS could STILL deliver the type of quick action they hope will happen: As a result of the court’s refusal to intervene, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will take first crack at the issue; it is scheduled to hear oral arguments on Jan. 9.
Once that court rules, the Supreme Court could act quickly on whether to take up the case.
In asking the court to step in on an expedited basis, Smith said the case “presents a fundamental question at the heart of our democracy: whether a former President is absolutely immune from federal prosecution for crimes committed while in office.”
Trump’s lawyers argued in court papers that Smith had given “no compelling reason” why the Supreme Court should immediately step in ahead of the appeals court.
This is not reporting, this is performing, performing for the DNC-CCP in the interest of a Progmerican Empire they dream will come, which is no America at all.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) is accusing the Department of Justice of spying on members of congress, and he wants the head of the DOJ, Merrick Garland, to answer for it.
He wrote a letter to Garland saying, “The Committee on the Judiciary is conducting oversight of the Justice Department’s use of its law-enforcement authority to obtain the private communications of Members of Congress and congressional staff members… On November 8, the Department informed the Committee via e-mail of ‘a change to the Department of Justice’s policies and procedures in criminal investigations involving Members of Congress and their staff’ that ‘impose[s] new requirements to consult with, or receive approval from, the Public Integrity Section.’”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has issued a subpoena to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to appear before his panel and explain alleged efforts to surveil members of Congress and congressional staff, which included during the so-called “Russiagate” scandal when then-President Donald Trump was in the White House.
“The Committee on the Judiciary is conducting oversight of the Justice Department’s use of its law-enforcement authority to obtain the private communications of Members of Congress and congressional staff members,” a letter from Jordan to Garland began.
U.S. Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) openly called for a revolution against the U.S. government in a video he shared on Twitter. He specifically attacked the judicial system, claiming it’s so filled with racism that it essentially needs dismantled, a constant call by the DNC-CCP that is included in its own party platform.
The use of the “white devil” to “justify” the dismantling of the republic, the dismantling of the family, the dismantling of Christianity is a tired trope at this point, and this anti-American, self-identified revolutionary should be arrested and face the highest charges one can face for openly seeking to overthrow the republic, for whatever imagined reason he assumes justifies such seditious actions.
Bowman said in the call to violent revolution, “As you know, we need a revolution within our criminal justice system. Period. Point blank. It is inhumane. It is racist. It is operating exactly as it was designed to be operating. And it is something that has been nurtured and funded historically by not just Republicans, Democrats as well. It’s connected to stop and frisk. It’s connected to just being able to pull someone over on the highway without real Just Cause. It’s connected to the lack of affordable housing in our communities. It’s connected to food insecurity. It’s connected to the lack of workforce development in our communities. It’s connected to mental health, it’s connected to miseducation. And it’s connected to substance abuse, among many other things.”
This is the same congressman that pulled a fire alarm to prevent a vote that might have shut down that same government he is openly calling on dismantling.
A small town in Michigan has given the CCP-bought township board the boot following its continued commitment to allow the CCP to build a battery plant in the town under the condition that it must adhere to the standards of the Chinese Communist Party. The town is called Green Township and it just recalled and replaced 5 of its 7 board members, after 2 had already resigned, leaving none of the CCP-supporting seditionists in positions of power in the town.
The board had voted unanimously in 2020 to approve the building of the battery plant under the auspices of Gotion, a Silicon-Valley-based company whose parent company is owned by the Chinese Communist Party. The vote received an immediate backlash, one that has been ignored, until now.
While opposition steadily grew, the board chose to ignore residents’ concerns, but eventually the pressure was too much for at least two of the board members resigned rather than continue to face the backlash. Following their resignation, the community produced enough signatures to trigger a recall election, with every single board member voted out.
From The Blaze:
While the spread of communism may sound far-fetched, corporate documents explicitly require Gotion to “set up a party organization and carry out party activities in accordance with the constitution of the Communist Party of China” and “ensure necessary conditions for carrying out party activities.”
“China is our number-one enemy!” one angry resident yelled at a board meeting last spring.
“My family members fought communism, and you’re bringing it right here,” said another.
Over the past several months, Green Charter residents amassed enough signatures to force a recall election for board members, who otherwise would face re-election in 2024.
Tensions between board members and residents reached such a peak this year that two board members, James Peek and Gary Todd, already resigned their positions. On Tuesday, more than 1,000 Green Charter residents showed up to cast their ballots to oust the other five: Trustees Dale Jernstadt and Roger Carroll; Clerk Janet Clark; Treasurer Denise MacFarlane; and Supervisor James Chapman.
Jason Kruse defeated Chapman with a whopping 60% of the vote, and Jeff Thorne defeated Jernstadt with 62%. By comparison, Kelly Cushway’s 57% victory over Carroll looks relatively close. Corri Riebow beat Clark for the clerk position with 53%, and Robert Henderson also received 53% to beat MacFarlane for the treasurer spot.
Bill Stanek, the supervisor of nearby Big Rapids Township, also lost a recall vote to challenger Carman Bean.
What the board members of this small town attempted to do to their citizens, selling them out in exchange for CCP cash, is going on right now across our country, from the highest level of office, starting with the King of foreign cash grift himself, Joe Biden, on down to many other local boards, including school boards, willing to take cash for CCP influence over the American people.
Our nation is filled with CCP employees disguised as American politicians, and it’s a problem endemic throughout both major political parties.
Abortion wins in big showdowns in Ohio, where an amendment to the state constitution making abortion legal up to birth, in Kentucky when a pro-abortion Democrat governor won re-election in a red state, and Virginia’s State House turns blue over the abortion debate. “Americans” have chosen murdering unborn children over the republic. Last night the nation declared it was not repentant and would continue to worship Moloch over the Lord.
Two other elections of note include two Mayors’ races, one in Bridgeport Connecticut that appears to offer little resolution after a ballot-stuffing controversy surfaced in the Democratic Primary the week before the election. The other Mayor’s race of note involved Sheila Jackson-Lee’s Houston Mayoral run where a run-off election will need to be run to settle the final winner.
To top it all off, Virginia has elected the first trans person, Danica Roem to their State Senate.
The American Accountability Foundation has been served notice by the revolutionary-infested IRS that it will face a lawfare assault by the administration in the form of a tax audit for daring to oppose the death cult’s agenda. The Foundation has exposed a number of Biden’s anti-American, racist, heterophobic, anti-human violent revolutionary nominees and exposed emails by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R) to pressure the IRS to target more DNC-CCP opposition for lawfare assaults, including calls to attack this very organization.
“Senator Whitehouse has repeatedly called for the IRS to investigate AAF—by name,” AAF President Tom Jones told The Daily Signal in an emailed statement Monday. “Attacking groups like ours has been a priority for Senator Whitehouse and it appears the Biden admin has heeded his calls.”
“We’re auditing your organization’s Form 990 for the tax year ended December 31, 2021,” an IRS revenue agent wrote in a Sept. 14 letter to AAF. The organization provided a copy of the letter to The Daily Signal.
The IRS insisted it does not launch audits for partisan reasons. A spokesman said he could not confirm the audit.
“Under the federal tax law, federal employees can neither confirm nor deny that a particular organization is or is not being audited,” IRS spokesman Anthony Burke told The Daily Signal in a phone interview Monday. “We’re precluded from disclosing tax return information.”
While the sheep of this country indoctrinated into the cult of death that is the DNC-CCP’s agenda cheer this violent action on, little do they realize they have signed up for a club that they can never be members of good standing with unless they sit on the very top of their murderous pyramid scheme Today it might be “conservatives,” the perceived enemies of these sheep, but tomorrow it will be the sheep themselves who cheered on the expansion of government power to chill dissent through lawfare, not realizing one day that same murder machine would one day bring them down as well.
