Attorney Lin Wood on Dec. 30 filed an emergency petition in the U.S. Supreme Court seeking to block next week’s Georgia Senate runoff election, days after his lawsuit was dismissed by a federal judge.

Wood, an attorney with President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, filed his petition (pdf) on Wednesday seeking a judge’s order to halt the Jan. 5, 2021, runoff races for U.S. Senate in Georgia, “until such time as the respondents agree to comply with the Georgia Legislature’s prescribed election procedures.”

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Vice Chair of the Georgia State Election Board Rebecca N. Sullivan, members of the Georgia State Election Board David J. Worley, Matthew Mashburn, and Anh Le are listed as respondents.

The attorney’s petition also requests that a judge orders the preservation of election-related materials, and asks that election officials produce one voting machine used in the Nov. 3 presidential election from each Georgia county for forensic examination.

It comes just days after Wood filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta earlier this month, saying the secretary of state’s office violated the law in how it handled absentee and mail-in ballots during the Nov. 3 election. Wood argued that the state’s process to verify signatures on ballots was flawed, among other allegations.

Wood’s request for injunctive relief was denied by U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr. on Dec. 28, saying that the allegations in the lawsuit are speculative, while asserting that Wood lacked standing.

The petition states that the district court “erred” when it “summarily” dismissed Wood’s lawsuit that was “supported by numerous fact and expert witness declarations and affidavits.”

Wood’s suit to the district court is “part of a larger effort to expose and reverse an unprecedent [sic] conspiracy to steal the 2020 General Election, as well as the January 5, 2021 senatorial runoff election in the State of Georgia,” it states.

Wood and others “seek to expose the massive coordinated election fraud that occurred in the 2020 General Election, that will inevitably repeat itself” in the senate runoffs, the petition claims.

Raffensberger, in a statement on Dec. 28, said that his office “time and time again” has been able to fend off lawsuits related to the Nov. 3 election.

“We have successfully fought off lawsuits from the right and the left looking to undermine rule of law in Georgia,” Raffensberger wrote. “The numerous baseless and frivolous lawsuits … are just the latest in a long history of lawsuits to nowhere in Georgia.”

The Jan. 5, 2021, runoff election pits Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock—with control of the Senate possibly at stake.

If Biden becomes President after all the evidence of massive voter fraud I have never going to vote again ! Why when my vote may not be counted while millions of non-eligible illegal votes are added into the number of the picked in advance candidate? We have a system so corrupt it has almost destroyed what's left of America and pushed us into the trash heap of history. I'm not saying we won't go out without fighting back but this was all so unnecessary. We could have stopped this long ago,instead we voted in what we are seeing now.

If the LEFT aren't challenged now concerning all of this MASSIVE ILLEGAL MAIL IN VOTING FRAUD this will be their way forward to STEAL all future elections doing the exact same thing. Anyone with half a brain can see there was MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD NATIONWIDE in this last election. We can be thankful that the LEFT only concentrated mainly on the key swing states this past election because if they had done the exact same thing to the other states including solid red states FLORIDA,TEXAS, and OHIO would have been lost as well, and the SENATE, and HOUSE would have gained SUPER MAJORITIES, and CHUCK SHUMER would leading the charge right now to change AMERICA as soon as the next congress is brought into session you can bank on that. If TRUMP manages keep the LEFT at bay and claw back the presidency from these rogue politicians guilty of the massive scam on the voting public he needs to elevate all of legal jurisprudence to the MILITARY for MILITARY TRIBUNALS to try these traitorous tyrants otherwise there will be no justice from our corrupted judiciary in state, federal, and the SUPREME CHICKENSHIT COURT! These were seditious, and treasonous acts of defiance and need to prosecuted as such! No quarter should be given to ANYONE guilty of this massive treasonous act against our country and our voting system as antiquated and pathetic, and weak as it now is to being breached and manipulated.

"Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Vice Chair of the Georgia State Election Board Rebecca N. Sullivan, members of the Georgia State Election Board David J. Worley, Matthew Mashburn, and Anh Le" (and I would add Gov Kemp) need to be sued by the citizens of Georgia if they fail to comply with election laws and they need to be thrown in jail... if people don't rise up and fight this corruption.. it will never end

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
