Dear Patriots,

This week we ask that you pray for our enemies, that they may come to see a better way.

Pray for our candidates that they may be strong and resolute.

Pray for our country that it may be redeemed.

Pray for all children that they may be protected from harm and bad influence.

1- A great piece by VDH on the history of election denial. We are talking about you, Hillary Clinton.

Read it all and share it.

Victor Davis Hanson at Jewish World Review  

Who denies election results?

QUOTE: A Democratic myth has arisen that former President Donald Trump's denial of the accuracy of the 2020 vote was "unprecedented."

Unfortunately, the history of U.S. elections is often a story of both legitimate and illegitimate election denialism.

The 1800, 1824, 1876, and 1960 elections were all understandably questioned. In some of these cases, a partisan House of Representatives decided the winner.

After 2016, crackpot Democratic orthodoxy for years insisted that Trump had "colluded" with Russia to "steal" certain victory from Hillary Clinton.

Clinton herself claimed that Trump was not a "legitimate" president. No wonder she loudly joined #TheResistance to obstruct his presidency.

The serial denialist Clinton later urged Joe Biden not to concede the 2020 election if he lost.

Clinton herself had hired foreign national Christopher Steele to concoct a dossier of untruths to smear her 2016 campaign opponent, Trump. The FBI took up Clinton's failed efforts. It likewise paid in vain her ancillaries like Christopher Steele to "verify" the dossier's lies. The bureau further misled a FISA court about the dossier's authenticity. An FBI lawyer even altered a document, as part of a government effort to disrupt a presidential transition and presidency.

The Clinton-FBI Russian-collusion hoax was a small part of the progressive effort to warp the 2016 election result.

The Washington Post giddily bragged about various groups formed to impeach Trump in his first days in office, on the pretext he was illegitimately elected.

2- Hang on pipeline workers! Help is coming!

Breitbart 

Ex-Keystone XL Pipeline Welder: Biden Administration 'Has Everything to Do' with Rising Energy Costs

QUOTE: A former Keystone XL Pipeline welder recently blasted Democrat President Joe Biden's intent to cut gas and energy prices before the midterm elections.

"I don't know how he gets away with keep saying that he doesn't have anything to do with [high gas prices] when they've got everything to do with it," Neal Crabtree said during an interview this week with Fox Business.

Crabtree previously worked on the Keystone XL project and was among hundreds of others laid off after the president took office.

Biden canceled the federal permit for the pipeline that would have brought vast amounts of oil on a daily basis from Canada down to the state of Texas. The move was meant to prioritize clean energy over fossil fuels.

Workers in his industry saw their hours cut significantly while some lost health insurance and are not receiving retirement benefits. Others had to look for another career altogether, according to Crabtree.

"When you're 40, or 45 years old, starting over ain't the easiest thing to do. You spent all your time building your skill set and then all of a sudden you're making a minimum wage. It can change your life," he noted.

3- Nearly 80% of Americans are sensible and want to protect children from this evil fad.

Daily Wire 

Poll: Nearly 80% Of Voters Oppose Transgender Procedures On Minors

QUOTE: A new poll found that nearly 80% of American voters believe that minors should be required to wait until they are adults to pursue transgender procedures.

The national survey, conducted by Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group, polled over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters in October. When asked if they "believe underage minors should be required to wait until they are adults to use puberty blockers and undergo permanent sex change procedures," the poll found that 78.7% of all respondents comprising Democrats, Republicans, and non-partisan affiliations said they should "wait."

"The idea that young people have to be 16 to drive, 18 to vote, and 21 to drink, and yet can undergo life-altering medical procedures in middle school defies common sense, and the American people see that clearly," said Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States.

The overwhelming majority of Republican and independent voters oppose gender change treatments for minors, while Democrats were divided. 96.8% of Republican voters, 84.6% of independent voters, and 53.2% of Democrats said that minors should wait until they are adults to pursue medical transition.

4- This is why elections matter!  Your votes matter!  There is a thin line of protection for our children from CDC recommendations and it is sensible Governors like DeSantis. We need more of them!

The Gateway Pundit 

DeSantis: "As Long as I am Governor, in Florida There Will Not be a Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate For Children in Our Schools"

QUOTE: Governor Ron DeSantis responded to the Biden Regime and CDC's latest attempt to force Covid vaccines on children.

On Thursday, the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to recommend COVID-19 to be included in the 2023 childhood immunization schedule in 15 unanimous votes.

ACIP recommends the use of COVID-19 vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older. COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines may be administered on the same day.

DeSantis said as long as he is governor, the Covid-19 vaccine will not be mandated for school children in Florida.

"As long as I am Governor, in Florida there will not be a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for children in our schools," DeSantis said.

He continued, "That is your decision to make as a parent. These are new shots. I get a kick out of it when people compare to MMR – things that have been around for decades and decades."

5- Elections matter. We had some Swamp draining under Trump but it is still too full of murky, lying, cheating bureaucrats.

American Experiment 

Rampant COVID-19 fraud points to a bigger problem with government spending

QUOTE: According to the US Department of Labor's Office of the Inspector General (OIG), about $46 billion in pandemic unemployment benefits might have been paid to fraudsters.

Initially, the OIG estimated that only $5 billion of unemployment payments were lost to fraud. But in June 2021, that number was revised up to $17 billion. But apparently, things were worse than that, so nearly $50 billion was likely paid to fraudsters.

And in another recently released report, which was focused on four states — California, Georgia, Kentucky, and Michigan — the OIG found that of the total $71.7 billion in pandemic unemployment benefits paid in those four states, an estimated $30.4 billion or 42.4 percent, were improperly paid. And, 9.9 billion, which is more than 10 percent, was likely paid to fraudsters.

This type of Fraud has, unfortunately, not been exclusive to unemployment payments. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) also made billions of dollars in payments to likely fraudsters. And even here in our home state of Minnesota, nearly $250 million has been stolen through Feeding our Future — a low-income food program — during the pandemic.

6- Great work by Frontpage Mag which highlights why it is imperative that we elect leaders in Congress who will hold the IRS accountable.

Frontpage Mag Cuts Off Cash Supply for Leftist Ecoterrorists

QUOTE: When Just Stop Oil, an ecoterrorist group, splashed tomato soup on Van Gogh's Sunflowers painting in London's National Gallery, it began fundraising off the attack with the threatening message, "Keep giving us new oil and gas and you will be getting soup".

Front Page Magazine quickly followed up with pointed inquiries to the leftist crowdfunding site that the ecoterrorists were using and its partners, including Santander Bank, and got results.

Just Stop Oil soon complained that, "Our Crowdfunder has been TAKEN DOWN after peacefully resisting this Government's genocidal plans." The leftists announced they had switched to Stripe which processes payments through Visa/MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Front Page has also reached out to Stripe and to its CEO about funding illegal activity.

But even more revealingly, Just Stop Oil told Americans, "You can make a tax deductible donation to Just Stop Oil's recruitment, training and educational programs through the Climate Emergency Fund." Backed by, among others, a Getty Oil heiress and leftist director Adam McKay, the Fund operates as a 501(c)(3) despite its support for ecoterrorism.

That's a problem because 501(c)(3) nonprofits are not allowed to fund illegal activity.

"Internal Radical Service" by David Horowitz and John Perazzo documents many of the radical leftist terror campaigns and abuses that the IRS has allowed to proliferate even as it cracks down on conservatives. Domestic terrorism is not a charity. If shutting down the operations of Congress is an insurrection, then how can its funders possibly operate as a nonprofit?

Until members of Congress begin asking those hard questions, the double standard will go on.

Ecoterrorists, like other vandals and criminals, belong in prison. The organizations that fund their crimes should face criminal charges. Instead, the IRS has allowed them to retain their nonprofit status so that taxpayers are subsidizing the Left's war against America.

7- It seems we get a scary FBI story once a week. This agency needs to be defunded, shuttered and rebuilt.

Award-winning ABC journo investigating Biden VANISHES after FBI raid

QUOTE: Award-winning ABC News journalist James Gordon Meek, who was writing a book on President Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan, simply disappeared after the FBI raided his home, reportedly seizing classified documents.

The FBI raid on his apartment in April involved at least 10 "heavily armed" agents, occupying a number of unmarked vehicles, including an armored tactical vehicle that an eyewitness claimed could have easily been mistaken for a tank. The whole operation was estimated to have taken approximately 10 minutes.

Following the raid, the FBI said it was conducting "court-authorized law-enforcement activity" in the area.

The national security investigative producer hasn't been seen for months since then and his apartment appears vacant according to neighbors.

Meek made his last post on social media just before 5 a.m. on April 27. He quoted a tweet concerning US intelligence gathering on Russian military operations, adding the comment, "FACTS."

That tweet was in response to Marc Polymeropoulos, who is a former CIA agent. He had tweeted that the Ukrainian military was holding its own against Russian forces with the help of the US. Polymeropoulos was ostensibly responding to a tweet from Washington Post Pentagon reporter Dan Lamothe, who reported that the US was gathering a "bonanza of information" concerning the Russian military by observing the invasion.

Since that day, Meek has vanished, according to Rolling Stone. Within days following the post, heavily armed federal agents raided Meek's Arlington, Virginia, penthouse apartment. Agents claim they found classified information on his computer during the raid, according to a report, which also quoted "sources familiar with the matter."

Meek's attorney, Eugene Gorokhov, has steadfastly denied allegations that Meek was in possession of classified material.
