At least two red states—Florida and Missouri—have made clear to the Biden Department of Justice that their federal election monitors are not welcome in their states’ polling places.
The Justice Department announced on Monday “plans to monitor compliance with federal voting rights laws in 64 jurisdictions in 24 states” on Election Day to “protect their rights of voters.” Monitors will include personnel from the Civil Rights Division and from U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. In addition, the division also deploys monitors from the Office of Personnel Management, where authorized by federal court order. Division personnel will also maintain contact with state and local election officials. Brad McVay, General Counsel of Florida’s Department of State, said federal monitors are lacking “specific statutory authorization,” and are not permitted under Florida law.
In a letter to John “Bert” Russ, Deputy Chief & Elections Coordinator of the Voting Section in the Civil Rights Division, McVay said that absent any evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion or federal statute that preempts Florida law, “the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counter productive and undermine confidence in the election.” Missouri’s Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft is also letting the Civil Rights Division of the Biden Justice Dept. know that its election monitors are not authorized to be at polling sites on Election Day, and are not welcome.
Ashcroft took to Twitter Sunday afternoon after a Cole County election authority received a letter from Charles Thomas, the Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, informing him that DOJ staff would be present at polling sites “reviewing Cole County’s voting program on Election Day.”
“While the U.S. DOJ could clearly learn a lot from Missouri about non-partisanship and how to administer accessible, secure and credible elections, it would be highly inappropriate for federal agents to violate […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
