“It’s really concerning that the Georgia secretary of state and Dominion are kind of putting their head in the sand,”
What We've Been Waiting For: Judge May Release Bombshell Report on Dominion Voting Machines in Georgia By Jack Davis, The Western Journal Feb 1, 202
A federal judge is being urged to release a report that, despite the secrecy surrounding it, appears to indicate there are potential flaws in the Dominion Voting Systems’ equipment used in Georgia.
“The public deserves to know the context of J. Alex Halderman’s claims and his testimony regarding the 2020 election,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said last week in calling for the document to be released, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Georgia voters face an extreme risk that [ballot marking device]-based attacks could manipulate their individual votes and alter election outcomes,” Halderman, a University of Michigan computer science professor, said about the report last year, according to the Daily Beast.
In its reporting, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has indicated that the report, completed last year, describes how someone could hack the system to change votes, without saying whether or not this was ever accomplished.
Halderman — exploring the world of possibilities — said malicious software could be installed on voting touchscreens to change votes from one candidate to another. Votes could also be altered through QR codes used by scanners, he said, without indicating that this had been done.
The report is part of a lawsuit that seeks to change Georgia’s system for voting. More importantly, it is a piece of the wider discussion about potential election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
To date, no one has produced any evidence or documentation that proves the machines were tampered with in 2020. Dominion, which was the target of multiple post-election allegations, has fought back, suing several of those who claimed its machines were part of an election fraud conspiracy.
U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg is considering releasing a redacted version of the report and said she is irked that the report has turned into a “political football,” according to the Journal-Constitution.
“I’m unhappy with the political treatment of the report,” Totenberg said last week. “The entire purpose of having hearings was to maximize transparency but at the same time trying to be mindful of the risks involved of disclosure.”
“I don’t want to have somebody saying, ‘We would have released the full report but for Judge Totenberg,’” she continued.
On Monday, Totenberg asked Georgia election officials and plaintiffs suing over election security to outline by Wednesday how they believe the report should be released, according to the Journal-Constitution.
“I want people to understand the general concerns … without giving anyone a road map to hacking or intruding on the system or manipulating it,” Totenberg said.
One option is to send the full report to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, while a more limited version goes to the public.
Raffensperger in the past has said the system of recounts and audits would disclose any attempt to rig an election.
Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has called on Raffensperger to review the expert’s report and ensure voting machines are safe.
Bidens been "IN OVER HIS HEAD" since he was "ELECTED" president. Sometime seems like he doesn't know what DAY it is...!
It’s beginning to look like President Joe Biden is in over his head when it comes to the brewing potential for an international clash.The changing tides for Biden come as China’s foreign ministry announced coordination with the Russian Federation on the matter of Ukraine.
According to Reuters, Moscow officials met with their Chinese counterparts in Beijing on Thursday. This is the first visit of foreign political guests to the communist capital since the viral outbreak in Wuhan spread into a worldwide pandemic.
Chinese officials have kept out most foreigners since early 2020 as part of its no-tolerance COVID policy, underscoring the importance of the Russian diplomats’ visit to Beijing.
The meeting comes as some 115,000 Russian troops are on standby near the Ukrainian border.
While Russia denies any impending invasion, the concentration of armor, weaponry and medical supplies hints the Kremlin is preparing for the possibility of an attack.
Biden seems to have given Russian President Vladimir Putin the green light for small-scale invasions, but promises action in response to bigger incursions.
“He’s never seen sanctions like the ones I promised would be imposed if he moves,” Biden said in January. “What you’re going to see is that Russia will be held accountable if it invades.”
Unfortunately for Biden, sanctions don’t seem to be the weapon he thinks they will be.
For one, a defense official who served under former President Donald Trump warned that China could easily relieve an isolated Russia. Given China’s massive industrial capacity and a wide land border with Russia, it seems the communist giant does sit ready to scuttle American economic interference.
Russia isn’t the only country looking to cash in on a weak American president.
North Korea recently launched an incredibly powerful missile, the first since Trump confronted the hermit kingdom’s leader in 2017. The White House has been largely silent on the rogue nuclear power’s resurgence.
War breaking out in Europe might spark a deadly conflict in the Pacific as well.
If Russian troops do end up marching on Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine, American involvement there would also give China itself a golden opportunity: The pacification of Taiwan.
While token American forces around the island nation may be able to initially frustrate any invasion, opening a two-front conflict may be a little too rich for Biden’s blood.
Even worse for Americans would be increased cooperation between China and Russia, a nightmare that has barreled toward reality under Biden’s watch. A Eurasian bloc of this scale would pose significant problems for the free world, and would be a dangerous competitor against the United States.
It’s clear these two countries have a common interest in undermining America’s standing in the world, but how far they are willing to go to realize this will depend on Biden’s actions in the coming weeks.
Loudoun County Public Schools Treating Maskless Students Worse Than Those Who Rape Their Classmates Rebecca Downs Posted: Feb 03, 2022
As Northern Virginia's Loudoun County continues to be plagued by a sex scandal, where a now 15-year old boy was able to rape classmates throughout the district, the district is also coming under fire for their policy on mask mandates, which is to suspend students and charge them with "trespassing," a Class I misdemeanor.
On Sunday, Nick Minock reported for ABC 7News that while students who did not show up with masks were sent to the auditorium to be segregated from their peers, they will now be suspended. Not only that, they will be physically removed from school and charged with trespassing.
"You’ve been warned if they come and do not put on a mask they will physically be removed from the property," Mrs. Platt, who has two children in elementary school and one in middle school told 7News. "There was a lot of tense emotion in that room. It was no joke. It seems silly they would threaten a first grader. Or hang college over their head."
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray is claiming that there is no difference in how the FBI has treated Jan. 6 protesters in relation to how ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter forces have been treated.
“We have one standard, which is: I don’t care whether you’re upset about an election or upset at our criminal justice system,” Wray said while appearing at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley for a speech on Monday night.
Whatever it is you’re upset about, there’s a right way and a wrong way to express your being upset in this country and violence — violence against law enforcement, destruction of property — is not it. …That’s what the rule of law is about,” he added.
Wray conjured up excuses as to why the Jan. 6 protest crackdown has been so aggressive in comparison to FBI’s response to ANTIFA and BLM thuggery.
Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA/BLM forces had their charges quietly dismissed after the feds talked tough following their sustained campaign of terror on a government building in Portland:
“The federal Department of Justice (DOJ) has dismissed cases for 31 ANTIFA thugs who were charged with crimes related to rioting in Portland, Ore.
Four defendants who were charged with felony assault of a federal officer had those charges dropped. More than half of the charges were “dropped with prejudice,” meaning that those cases cannot under any circumstances be brought up again in court.
Billy Williams, the U.S. Attorney for Oregon, claimed at the time there would be severe consequences against ANTIFA terrorists who committed wanton acts of destruction outside of the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse throughout the summer of 2020.
“Make no mistake: those who commit violence in the name of protest, will be investigated, arrested, prosecuted, and face prison time,” Williams stated in a Sept. 25, 2020 press release.
After blatantly lying to the public, Williams continues to make excuses for the feds’ refusal to punish ANTIFA terrorists.
“Each case was analyzed for the evidence that we had at the time,” Williams told KJW. “Careful decisions were made on whether or not someone should be charged based on the evidence.”
“I’ve never made a decision in my career based upon political pressure or institutional pressure,” Williams claimed.
Big League Politics has reported on other instances in which federal authorities protected ANTIFA thugs, with the FBI regularly carrying water for the far-left terror group.”
The rule of law is dead in America, and a Soviet-style regime of justice has replaced it. This is the land of the free no longer. It is a globalist technocracy now, and the FBI are the brown shirts enforcing the anarcho-tyranny needed to prop up this demonic regime.

The FBI searched troves of communications sucked up by the National Security Agency for information on 'racially motivated violent extremists' without a warrant, ignoring previous warnings it was breaking the law.
e-mailThe FBI searched troves of communications sucked up by the National Security Agency for information on 'racially motivated violent extremists' without a warrant, ignoring previous warnings it was breaking the law.
The FBI's requests for access to masses of electronic communications harvested by the National Security Agency (NSA) is revealed in a newly declassified report from the United States' secret surveillance court.
It shows the FBI has continued to perform warrantless searches through the NSA's most sensitive databases for routine criminal investigations, despite being told by a federal judge in 2018 and 2019 that such a use was an unconstitutional breach of privacy.
The FBI focused many of its warrantless searches - commonly referred to as backdoor queries - on suspected 'far-right' domestic terrorists, The Daily Beast reported.
It's unclear from the heavily-redacted Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court report whether the FBI uncovered any criminal extremist behavior or made any arrests resulting from the searches.
In its gathering of 'foreign' communications data, the NSA often sweeps up Americans' communications, too.
It's unclear how many Americans had their data viewed by the FBI in its search for 'racially motivated' extremists.
The FISA report did reveal that a single request for data to the NSA from an FBI analyst for information on a suspected domestic terrorists returned 33 hits.
It's not clear how many other requests were tied to the hunt for alleged racially motivated extremists, nor who at the FBI asked for the data or approved the request.
A senior FBI official told DailyMail.com the FBI had taken 'numerous steps' to comply with the FISA court guidance over the past 18 months.
The official wouldn't answer other questions on specifics and referred questions to the NSA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).
An NSA spokesman said it wouldn't comment when reached by the DailyMail.com. A spokeswoman for the ODNI said they had no additional information to what FBI had provided.
The FBI did not say what it did with seized data that turned out to be harmless or irrelevant to its search, or whether its access to the NSA's electronic dragnet led to any arrests or convictions.
In 2019, a federal court ruled the US government can collect information about its citizens without obtaining a warrant if the information is gathered inadvertently while legally carrying out surveillance of non-nationals abroad, such as what the NSA does routinely.
The NSA monitors vast troves of global communications, including text messages, phone calls, emails and messages on encrypted apps, but is constrained by US law on how it uses the information against US citizens.
Incidental collection of Americans' data is allowed, according to a 2019 federal court ruling.
However, databases of stored NSA information could violate the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.
The FBI has traditionally only been allowed to seek data in cases of national security.
But after the bureau began making requests for routine criminal investigations, the FISA courts have been cracking down on how the FBI can access the data of Americans who are caught in these sweeps.
The FBI has been repeatedly blasted by federal judges over its use of the NSA's vast electronic sweep of emails, texts and other electronic data.
In October 2019, the agency was found to have performed tens of thousands of illegal searches on Americans.
It probed the NSA database for information on US citizens - when legally it only could have been used to gather foreign intelligence information or in cases of national security.
The National Security Agency, operating inside the United States, is authorized to collect communications of foreigners overseas for foreign intelligence purposes.
The searches potentially breach a person's right to a fair trial, as The Fourth Amendment protects American citizens from 'unreasonable searches.'
A search of such raw data goes against the very same law that authorizes the surveillance program, the court ruled.
In December 2019, the top FISA judge called out the FBI for repeatedly submitting applications to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page that were riddled with errors and omissions, and ordered the government to inform the court on how it plans to reform the process.
The scathing four-page order from Rosemary Collyer, the presiding judge over the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), marks the first time the court has responded to the controversy, which became public last week with the release of a report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The NSA's vast dragnet of electronic data is only supposed to be used by domestic agencies such as the FBI in cases of national security.
In the newly released FISA report, which was dated November 2020, a judge says the FBI's Fourth Amendment violations were still 'apparently widespread'.
In a statement, a senior FBI official said the majority of the 'query incidents referenced in this report occurred prior to implementation of the FBI's system changes and training regarding the additional documentation requirements discussed above'.
FBI searches also looked into 'health care fraud, transnational organized crime, violent gangs' and 'public corruption and bribery'.
'The FBI is dedicated to full adherence with FISA’s requirements and to keeping the American people safe from national security threats,' the senior FBI official said.
It's unclear if they have ever faced any legal repercussions for the repeated breaches.
Revelations that the FBI are continuing to access the NSA's database without a warrant comes as Congress is considering new domestic terror laws in response to the January 6 attacks on the Capitol.
Security agencies and police departments are also pledging to rid their ranks of violent extremists.
On Monday, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced an internal review to assess the threat within the agency.
Senior DHS officials will immediately begin the review, which is aimed at preventing, detecting and responding to extremism within the ranks of a sprawling agency that includes the Coast Guard and the nation's immigration enforcement organizations, Secretary Mayorkas said in a letter announcing the effort.
