Rand Paul: If we are Criminalizing Speech, Impeach Schumer for Threats Against SCOTUS Justices


Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) is calling for the impeachment of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for making threats against Supreme Court Justices Neal Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

While the Senator says he opposes the criminalization of speech, if Democrats will go after Republicans for their rhetoric, members of their own party must be held to the same standard.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday”, he said, “I opposed the notion of — which I think was a misguided notion, a voting to overturn the election either with Congress or with the vice president,” Paul said. “But I think if we are going to criminalize speech and somehow impeach everybody who says, oh, go fight to hear your voices heard, really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then. He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court, and said specifically, hey Gorsuch, hey Kavanaugh, you’ve unleashed a whirlwind, and you’re going to pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you continue with these awful decisions.”

Paul was referring to the comments Schumer made in March of 2020 at a pro-abortion rally.

In fact, Schumer’s language was so inflammatory, Paul pointed out, that “the chief justice, who rarely says anything publicly, immediately said this kind of language is dangerous as a mob tried to invade the Supreme Court.”

Paul also suggested lawmakers such as Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Maxine Waters (D-CA) should also be held to the same standard.

“So if people want to hold President Trump accountable for language, there has to be a consistent standard, and to my mind, it’s a partisan farce because they’re not doing anything to Chuck Schumer, not doing anything to Representative Omar, not doing anything to Maxine Waters. It’s just not fair. It’s just partisan politics under a different name.”

Maxine Waters Denies Telling Supporters To Harass Members of Trump Administration


In a Sunday interview with MSNBC’s Ali Velshi, Rep Maxine Waters, D-CA, denied the accusation that she told her supporters to harass members of the Trump Administration.

In her interview Waters stated, ” as a matter of fact, if you look at the words that I used, the strongest thing I said was tell them they’re not welcome. “[I said] Talk to them. Tell them they’re not welcome. I didn’t say go and fight. I didn’t say anybody was going to have any violence. And so they can’t make that stick.”

Fox News reports:

Watters came under fire in 2018 for telling the same network that she had “no sympathy” for administration officials who defended Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, and urged her supporters to “absolutely harass them” when appearing in public.

“They’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store,” Waters said at the time. “The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them.”

Her comments came after then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and former press secretary Sarah Sanders were confronted with their families in public over Trump’s controversial family separation policy.

When speaking with Laura Ingraham from “The Ingraham Angle”, Bruce Castor, Trump’s lead impeachment attorney was asked if he would use the video of Waters inciting violence from 2018 in which he replied, “I think you can count on that.”

Time Magazine: Shadow Campaign Was Not Rigging The Election, They Were "Fortifying" It


A story released by Time Magazine describes in detail how a shadow campaign, “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information,” came together to make sure things went their way for the 2020 election.

The author who is a leftist, Molly Ball, writes in her article that most of the activity took place by the left.

A section from Ball’s article describes just a few of the things the secret cabal worked on:

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time.

They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction.

After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. “The untold story of the election is the thousands of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy at its very foundation,” says Norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama Administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats to the board of the Voter Protection Program.

A man named Mike Podhorzer who Ball describes as the architect, started planning some of these strategies in the fall of 2019. Podhorzer said, “it wasn’t hard to find liberals who saw Trump as a dangerous dictator, but Podhorzer was careful to steer clear of hysteria.”

Podhorzer would hold zoom meetings for hours a day with progressive leftist groups such as, “the labor movement; the institutional left, like Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace; resistance groups like Indivisible and MoveOn; progressive data geeks and strategists, representatives of donors and foundations, state-level grassroots organizers, racial-justice activists and others,” Ball stated.

One of the big pushes of the activists was mail-in voting, which ended up being a big area for fraud. Activists were able to secure public and private funding including money from the Chan Zuckerberg foundation which chipped in $300 million.

Ball describes a scenario at the TCF center in Detroit saying, “A busload of Republican election observers had arrived at the TCF Center, where votes were being tallied. They were crowding the vote-counting tables, refusing to wear masks, heckling the mostly Black workers.”

Many signed affidavits tell a different story at the TCF center where there was cheering every time a Republican observer was kicked out. The windows were blocked up so no one could see in and observers inside were so far from the tables it made it impossible to see what vote counters were doing so Ball’s comment about crowding table could not have happened.

The latest information is surveillance footage from the TCF center that clearly shows a van dropping off at least 50 boxes of ballots at 3:30am, which was well after the 8pm deadline. The van left and returned again an hour later with even more ballots. This is when Biden saw a massive increase of 149,000 votes.

The people on the left think that everything they did was a good thing, but it’s far from it when the politically connected, main stream media, activists, and wealthy donors such as Mark Zuckerberg conspire together to create a shadow campaign to make an election go their way.
