Published

Voters in Indiana and Ohio are heading to the polls today to vote in the states’ primary elections. Here are the Republican candidates running for Congress, as well as state-level positions like secretary of state, who support former President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie.”

Kaleigh Rogers: Primary season is here and across the country, candidates who have questioned the legitimacy of the 2022 election are running for offices up and down the ballot. FiveThirtyEight and ABC News have been tracking candidates running for Congress and state-level positions like governor, secretary of state and attorney general. Here’s who supports Trump’s “Big Lie” in today’s primaries — they’ve all either said that Trump’s loss or the 2020 election was illegitimate or took legal action to overturn its results.

In Indiana, we’ve identified four candidates so far who have backed Trump’s false allegations of election fraud. That includes Representative Jackie Walorski. She’s running for re-election in Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District, along with Representative Jim Baird in the 4th District. These candidates were among a group of Republicans in Congress who voted not to certify some of the results from the 2020 election. There’s also Ben Ruiz. He’s running for Congress in Indiana’s 1st district and his platform includes claims that the election was stolen through ballot “stuffing and shuffling.”

In Ohio, we’ve identified 21 candidates so far who have promoted the Big Lie. One race in particular has attracted a number of them: the Republican primary for Ohio’s open Senate seat. In fact, in a debate last month, six of the seven candidates said they believe that the 2020 election was fraudulent. That includes Josh Mandel, who has made claims of election fraud a central part of his campaign, saying that the election was “stolen” from Trump. It also includes J.D. Vance, who’s been endorsed by Trump and has echoed the former president’s claims of a rigged election. Finally, there’s John Adams, who’s running for secretary of state in Ohio and has said that the 2020 election was, quote, “clearly not legitimate.” Secretaries of state have a ton of authority over elections, so we’ll be paying particular attention to candidates running for those offices. Electing a Big Lie supporter in these primaries could have a profound impact on how elections are carried out in the future

ROGER STONE EXCLUSIVE: Guilt by Association Smears Just Won’t Stop

Published

Guest post by Roger Stone

Guilt by association smears just won’t stop. 

Webster’s dictionary defines “guilt by association” as moral guilt or unfitness presumed to exist on the basis of one’s known associations. It is the favored tool of the fake news media and it grows tedious.

In an all too familiar pattern of smear, conjecture, supposition and good old fashion “guilt by association” the New York Times last week attempted yet again to imply that simply because I know President Donald Trump and I know or came into contact with members of the Proud Boys or the Oath Keepers that I must surely have been involved in some way with the illegal acts went down at the Capitol on January 6th. Wrong !

Neither of CNN’s previous claims that they were in possession of “secret encrypted ” text messages regarding arrangements for a perfectly legal speech that I gave at a legally permitted rally on January 5 nor the new New York Times claims that my inclusion in a chat room that was neither initiated nor administered by me prove in any way that I was involved in the politically counterproductive and illegal activities at the Capitol on January 6th. That Reuters reported months ago that the FBI had concluded that neither Alex Jones nor I were involved in any illegal conspiracy is just ignored in the rush to slander me.

In a repeat of the same slander, I experienced in the two-year ordeal in which I was the target of a politically motivated witch hunt designed to pressure me into testifying falsely against President Trump in which I was wrongly charged with “lying to Congress” about Russian collusion that we now know definitively was an entirely false narrative propagated by the Clinton campaign and accelerated by their many handmaidens in the fake news media.

Incredibly some former prosecutor named Glenn Kirschner who previously accused me of being a Russian spy now insists that I will go to prison in a January 6th matter or that I will flip and somehow testify against President Trump. Ridiculous. Kirshner has no evidence of wrongdoing on my part and his comments come excruciatingly close to defamation. There is nothing to ‘flip” about.

The continued attacks on me are motivated largely by bloodlust and the fact that the hysterical left cannot get over the fact that I avoided the deadly snare so cleverly set for me by corrupt and politically motivated prosecutor Robert Mueller and his cohort Congressman Adam Schiff.

Let me say it again. Any claim assertion or implication that I knew about, was involved in or condoned any illegal activity on January 6th at the Capitol or any place else at any other time is categorically false. If Kirschner or any of his ilk have any evidence to the contrary they should produce it. There is no document, communication or witness who can claim otherwise.

Perhaps this new round of baseless attacks on me is based partially on the fact that the gross criminality and total fabrication of the entire Russian collusion hoax by Hillary Clinton and her lawyers and top Aides is collapsing around their ankles in the DC courtroom where Special Counsel John Durham is prosecuting Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman.

In fact, former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook admitted that Hillary herself signed off on a statement by her national security advisor accusing Donald Trump falsely of having some involvement with a Russian bank. The Clinton campaign’s funding of the entirely bogus Steele dossier, compiled with the assistance of Russian intelligence assets, has already been firmly established. How ironic that this is the same Robby Mook who attacked me relentlessly as a”Russian collaborator” during the Soviet-style show trial I was subjected to in Washington DC in early 2020. Mook was lying then and he actually knew it.

These recycled personal attacks grow increasingly tedious and expensive. My wife and I are already burdened with unpaid medical bills from her recent cancer treatments as well as massive legal bills for defending myself before the January 6th committee as well as in six baseless civil lawsuits against us including a Biden Department of Justice civil suit which implies but does not claim that we somehow cheated on our 2006 income taxes. This is called lawfare which is the filing of false but sensationalized civil claims against an individual to generate negative media coverage and run up huge legal bills for the target.

Pope Francis Says Nothing as the CCP Arrests Catholic Leaders in China and Hong Kong

Published

Pope Francis remains silent as the CCP arrests and imprisons Catholic leaders in China and Hong Kong. 

Where is Pope Francis?  Why is he not leading the efforts to implement and support religious freedom in China and Hong Kong?

Last week the Cardinal in Hong Kong was arrested by the new head of the country who is a CCP plant.  Pope Francis said nothing.

Also, over the past year, the bishop in China was taken by the CCP and kept in solitary confinement for months.  No one knows where he is.  According to Breitbart:

As Breitbart News reported, officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) arrested the bishop of Xinxiang on May 21, 2021, along with 10 priests and 10 seminarians, in an effort to apply further pressure to the illegal underground Catholic Church.

Police originally took the bishop and priests to a hotel where they were kept in solitary confinement and subjected to “political sessions” to indoctrinate them with the CCP’s understanding of religious freedom, according to a report by AsiaNews, the official press agency of the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions.

The seminarians were released after three days and the priests followed several days later, yet Bishop Zhang is still in police custody, illegally held without charges or trial at an unknown location. Chinese law stipulates that no one can be detained in solitary confinement without charges for more than three months.

Two family members were allowed to see the bishop for a few minutes during Lunar New Year celebrations, but no one is aware of where he is being held and priests are not permitted to visit or call him.

AsiaNews reported that the Catholic community in Xinxiang still hopes for their bishop’s release, while also growing worried about his physical and mental health.

The Vatican has apparently made no appeal for Bishop Zhang’s liberation.

Again, the Pope says nothing.   Now as sovereign nations hand over their healthcare freedoms to the WHO, the Pope again remains silent.
