About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen’s nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no ‘government’ of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

‘Huge Debts:’ Millions in Earnings Failed to Satiate Hunter Biden’s Hunger for Crack, Prostitutes, Luxury Cars

Hunter Biden owes massive credit card debt after living like a high roller with access to millions of dollars linked to business dealings overseas that proved insufficient to satisfy his ravenous appetite for drugs, prostitutes, and luxury cars, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

The Daily Mail published a bombshell report surrounding the potentially  incriminating contents of a laptop purportedly owned by Hunter that was dropped off at a Delaware repair shop and eventually given to the FBI.

On Friday, the Daily Mail unveiled contents of the laptop that go well beyond the emails first reported by the New York Post in October 2020 detailing Hunter’s lucrative overseas business deals that helped him lead a drug-addled lifestyle, with prostitutes, and luxurious rides.

Ultimately, his lifestyle left him broke, unable to support his drug and prostitute habit and support his family.

The Daily Mail summarized its long bombshell report, noting:

  • Hunter Biden’s wild spending left him with huge debts to credit card companies and desperate to avoid jail for unpaid taxes, DailyMail.com can reveal
  • Pictures, documents, emails and texts obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter’s laptop reveal he spent thousands of dollars on strippers and prostitutes
  • Biden even threatened to take $20,000 out of his daughter’s education savings account
  • Pictures found on the laptop show what appears to be thousands of dollars worth of crack bagged up on a scale, and Hunter naked and in bed with women
  • The numerous expenses left him strapped for cash when it came to supporting his new family
  • In an April 2017 email, [Hunter’s company] Rosemont Seneca Vice President wrote to Hunter detailing how he faced total bills of $476,231.60, including $60,467 on three credit cards and $320,417.85 in unpaid federal taxes

In 2019, the FBI seized the laptop in connection to a money-laundering scheme. Last December, Hunter and his then-president-elect father admitted that the U.S. Attorney in Delaware was investigating the younger Biden over his federal taxes.

Hunter reportedly made between $50,000 and $100,000 monthly working for corruption-linked Ukrainian gas conglomerate Burisma between 2014 and 2019, helping him fill his coffers with at least $6,070,150 from 2013 to 2016, the Daily Mail found.

Nevertheless, the news outlet noted, “Leaked emails reveal how Hunter Biden was desperate to avoid jail for unpaid taxes – after blowing hundreds of thousands of dollars on luxury cars, prostitutes, drugs, and designer clothing.”

According to the documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Hunter kept a 2014 Porsche, an Audi, a 2018 Ford Raptor Truck, an $80,000 boat, a Range Rover, Land Rover, BMW, and Chevrolet Truck.

He also spent thousands of dollars on strippers – including one who had his child – suspected prostitutes, and massive amounts of crack.

Hunter told an Arkansas judge he could not pay child support for the child he fathered with stripper Lunden Roberts, even as he rented a $12,000 per month home in Hollywood and was driving a Porsche Panamera at the time.

Ultimately, he settled the case with Roberts out of court after the judge ordered him to produce his financial records.

The Daily Mail noted:

The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos, and dozens of videos from Hunter’s laptop and authenticated by experts retained by DailyMail.com are packed with revelations conveniently missing from his newly published memoir, Beautiful Things.

The pictures, documents, emails, and texts reveal that despite reporting more than $6 million of income from 2013 to 2016, Hunter’s bacchanalian expenses left him with huge debts to credit card companies and the tax man.

Some of the pictures show Hunter half nude, with only a bathrobe on like the late Hugh Hefner from the Playboy mansion, only instead of a cigar, Hunter is reportedly shown smoking what appears to be a crack pipe.

Other pictures found on his laptop show what appears to be thousands of dollars worth of crack on a Cheech and Chong branded scale and Hunter naked and in bed with likely prostitutes.

Like most drug addicts, Hunter sunk low, threatening to take money from his daughter’s education savings account.

The walls began to close in as his business dealings, described as shady by critics, came under the microscope of conservative media outlets such as Breitbart News. At the same time, the Democrat-allied mainstream outlets ignored Hunter’s overseas deals.

Although his money situation reportedly appeared to substantially improve in 2020, allowing him to pay the District of Columbia a $453,890 tax bill just six days after it was issued, that did not last long.

Hunter was unable to keep his high roller lifestyle and support his family on over a half a million dollar a year salary, and he had to borrow money from one of his companies to keep himself solvent, Eric Schwerin, the president of Hunter’s company Rosemont Seneca, reportedly wrote in an email in January 2017,

“As his finances descended into disarray and his assistants begged him to pay his mounting bills, the President’s son lashed out threatening to cut staff pay, take money from his daughter’s educational savings, and complained about his alimony bills,” the Daily Mail noted, adding:

In October 2018 email from Hunter’s accountant shows that by that year his tax debt had ballooned to an eye-watering $804,000, including $600,000 in personal taxes and $204,000 for one of his businesses that received money from Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

It appears Hunter is not the only Biden with a distorted version of reality.

In the few public comments Joe has made recently amid the fall to rock bottom by his son, his then-president-elect father blamed other people for his son’s downfall.

When announcing the feds were investigating Hunter for failing to pay taxes, Biden said last December he is “deeply proud of his son who has fought through difficult challenges, including personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”

During a softball interview earlier this month, Hunter told CBS News that the laptop “certainly” could be his, but he denied dropping it off at the repair shop.

April 11th – 2021 Presidential Politics – Resistance Day 82

In an effort to keep the Daily Open Thread a little more open topic we are going to start a new daily thread for “Presidential Politics”. Please use this thread to post anything relating to the JoeBama Administration and Presidency.

“This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won’t be done. The Founders’ Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.”

“But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.”

A Young Person’s Guide to the Port Arthur Massacre – Mal Hughes Passes the Torch

Introduction by Mary W Maxwell

Criminals attempt to kidnap another little woman

Evil kidnaps babies from hospitals many times too

This is an unusual article by Mal Hughes who often writes succinct comments (as “Aussiemal”) at GumshoeNews.com. He has learned, from chatting with millennials – people born after 1990 – that their generation has not been told a lot of our history. Mal is a serious local historian, having published in 2018 a history of Kwinana where he grew up, south of Perth.

Mal is no doubt the citizen who has done the most to get government attention to the unfair treatment of Martin Bryan. He has stacks of correspondence to “anyone he could think of” to pester about the matter.  Usually Mal received the bedbug letter for his efforts, or no reply at all.

Still undaunted, Hughes has now decided to put more effort into passing the torch. The following is a conversation that I helped him reconstruct. Picture it happening in a pub. We cleaned up the language a bit, OK?

A Torch-Passing Conversation

Mal: It’s amazing how fast the years are flying by me. I’ve just noticed that next week is the 25th anniversary of the Port Arthur massacre. Do you remember that? It was in 1996.

Millennial: No. I was born in ’91, so I was only in Kindy. Who got massacred?

Mal: About 35 people were shot, most of them in a café. it must’ve been a good marksman who did it.

Millennial: Did they catch him?

Mal: Definitely not, but they caught an innocent guy named Martin Bryant.

Millennial: So what did they have on him?

Mal: The main thing they had on him was that he had long blond hair; he was a surfer. I mean the real Martin Bryant had long blond hair and if they wanted to set him up to cop the blame, they only had to find another young man with blond hair. Or find a young man and put a blond wig on him.

Millennial: Well, if they’ve had 25 years to work it out, why didn’t they get the real guy?

Mal: I guess you could say they don’t want to catch the real guy.

Millennial: I know what you mean.  It must have been a false flag. What were they trying to fool the people about?

Mal: In my best guess, John Howard’s government set out to take everybody’s guns away.  No sooner did he come into office in’ 96….

Millennial: Who’s John Howard?

Mal: Prime Minister, Liberal Party, right after Labor, Paul Keating. No sooner did Howard move into The Lodge than he was gung-ho anti-gun.  Here is a photo of him talking to a crowd that was not too pleased about him offering to buy back all the guns in Australia.

Millennial: What if you had five guns, you could just admit to two of them.

Mal: I suppose there was some of that. The buyback cost a half billion dollars. Anyway, they worked laboriously to pin it on Martin and the media helped by dressing up the Martin story with lurid details.

Millennial: Like what?

Mal: Like that he was wild. Look at the picture of him that appeared on the front page of The Mercury about 24 hours after the massacre.  They bugged out his eyeballs.

Mal: And there’s a shot of him (above below the title), after the hospital, looking more normal.

Millennial: What was he in hospital for?

Mal: They captured him by setting a cottage on fire and he came staggering out with burns on his back. It’s terrible that your generation is unaware of these things. If I tell you about it, can you pass it on to other young people?

Millennial: Sure, but wasn’t there a court case? Couldn’t he appeal?

Mal: Not exactly, because he’s intellectually handicapped and the lawyer he had, John Avery, got him to plead guilty.

Millennial: Like the Boston Marathon guy.

Mal: Holy cow, you know about the Boston case and you don’t know about Tasmania!

Millennial: Is Port Arthur in Tasmania?

Mal: Yes. There’s a big tourist operation there at the Port Arthur Historic Site.

Millennial: OK, I do know that the prison there was for the convicts that came over from England, like in the song.

Mal: Right.  Look, I went there a few years ago to sleuth around and took this photo.

Mal: I also took this photo of the Broad Arrow Cafe where the shooting occurred, but they have part demolished it as they always do.

Millennial: How could the cafe have yielded any clues about the gunman?

Mal: Well, one example is that some of the employees in the gift shop tried to escape that day, but they were blocked by a faulty locked door. It is pathetic that their families did not get the compensation they were entitled to.

Millennial: So who arranged for that door to be locked?

Mal: Wendy Scurr had all the details.  You can watch her on YouTube. She was close by when the shooting started, as she worked at the Historic Site as an Information Officer. I wrote her up in my Great Australians series at GumshoeNews.com. But now she is deceased.

Millennial: Crikey, I think my mates will be interested in this case. But aren’t all the main characters dead?

Mal:  No. If they were age 40 when it happened, they are only 65 now. One character was Ray Groom. I believe he was one of the main actors, or somebody’ slave, in planning the Port Arthur Massacre. He had been a cabinet member for the Liberal Party in Federal Government but stood down in 1984 and was elected to the Tasmanian Parliament in 1986 becoming Premier in 1992. He stepped down from that position in February 1996, when the Libs couldn’t form a government in their own right.

Millennial: Crikey, nobody steps down from federal to state parliament.

Mal: And wait till you hear this. Six weeks before the massacre, Groom took on all the relevant cabinet portfolios. So later if people had questions at parliamentary Question Time, they would be questioning just him.

Millennial: You have to give them credit, Mal. They’re not stupid. Do you think the action to disarm Australia’s population was so that when authorities try to enforce Covid-19, and things like that, outraged people would not be able to rebel violently?

Mal: Almost certainly.  The UN mandates disarmament worldwide. Very funny. I call it long-term planning.

Millennial: Is Port Arthur still an open case?

Mal: No it’s not open. As far as the police are concerned, Martin did it.

Millennial: Can’t he appeal?

Mal: Technically he could get a fresh look at it by the courts, based on some law that Vanessa Goodwin brought in.

Millennial: Who is Vanessa?

Mal: Get out your handkerchief.

Millennial: We don’t do handkerchiefs anymore, Mal.

Mal: You know what I mean. Vanessa Goodwin was a lovely attorney general, age 48, but she died.

Millennial: It’s not a handkerchief I need; it’s a gun.

Mal: Now let me tell you about Martin Bryant’s trial. Namely, he didn’t have one.

Millennial: Everybody gets a trial.

Mal: Nope. For one thing, he was intellectually handicapped. But that did not cause Justice Cox to inquire if a guardian should speak for him.

Millennial: Maybe they’d let Ray Groom speak as his guardian.

Mal: Hey, you should get a job with these people. You’re a quick learner. Funny thing is, Martin wasn’t poverty ridden — he had inherited quite an estate. But Tassie parliament did a one-off legislation to seize his property, and so he had to depend on Legal Aid.  Enter, John Avery a not particularly ethical lawyer.

Millennial: OK, you said they did a Boston on him.

Mal: Yes, Avery forced him to toss his innocence plea. Here’s another photo. From 2017, in The Mercury.  Amazingly, John Avery has described the whole set-up and yet that does not get Martin out of prison.

Millennial: Can I visit him in prison?

Mal: Please do. They will try to tell you he refuses visits. My friend Cherri Bonney, who’s a well-known singer in Perth, tried to see Bryant.  Her excuse was that she was delivering to him a CD of a song she wrote about him called “Wish I Knew How to Be Free.”  But they kicked her out.

Millennial: This is getting better by the minute. I am surprised I never heard of it.

Mal: Go to GumshoeNews.com.  In fact, while you’re there, download the book by Maxwell and McLachlan. They spewed out as much as they knew in 2015. And Keith Noble’s book, Mass Murder, is somewhere on the Internet.

Millennial: Have you pursued it beyond 2015?

Mal:  There’s a retired barrister at GumshoeNews, Terry Shulze.  He wants to push the fingerprint aspect.  The real gunman had his hands on a tray in the cafe and drank from a Solo can.  But as I said, police don’t go there.

Millennial: Are you hiding any clues?

Mal: There are two aspects I wish I could pursue. One has to do with the apparent involvement of ASIO in the massacre.  Mary Maxwell and I investigated the 2014 shooting in the Lindt Chocolate cafe in Sydney, and she is sure the feds called the shots. I have it from my sources that 30 Intelligence Agents have been identified at the Port Arthur Historic Site that day, April 28, 1996. Seven of the dead are known to be Intelligence Agents.

Millennial: Shite, they needed to be bumped off for some other reason. And what is your other lead?

Mal:  Some years ago, a young man was accused of having been the shooter, Benjamin Overbeeke. I can’t say that there is any proof of it, but soon after his name started to be bandied about on the Internet, the boy fell from a crane or something and died.

Millennial: Sounds suspicious.

Mal:  Yes, and his father was also a possible suspect.  Someone said he was seen riffling thru the pockets of the deceased victims in the Broad Arrow Cafe, wearing wellington boots, which would protect from bloodstains.

Millennial: Is he dead now, too?

Mal:  No. Mary Maxwell interviewed him in Adelaide around 2017 and she came away thinking he was no killer.

Millennial: Mal, please sum up — how do you feel about the case?

Mal:  Easy. I want them all to rot in hell. But you are cheering me up by your interest. I have felt that when my group dies out nobody’s going to bother. Martin will still be locked up.

Millennial: I’ll see what I can do, Mal.  Thanks for putting some trust in me.

A Rebel With a Cause, The Battle of Tinhorn Flats

Friend of the Treehouse, Peter Duke, introduced me to this story and it is blood-boiling, yet awesome.

A young man named Lucas Lepejian is in a battle with Burbank authorities who are trying to run him out of business.  Lucas is the 20-year-old son of Baret Lepejian the proprietor of a long-standing western-themed restaurant called Tinhorn Flats; a well known place to dine in Burbank, California.

Local authorities have attempted to shut down Tinhorn Flats repeatedly.  Each time Lucas defies the orders and reopens.

Lucas has been arrested three times in defiance of the ridiculous COVID shutdown.

The issue now is personal, the authorities are intent on destroying his business… Lucas, and a small battalion of supporters, remain defiant.

TIMELINE & DETAILS: Tinhorn Flats is the oldest bar in Burbank.  In March of 2020 they shut down in compliance with state guidelines.   They reopened in November 2020, and when the second lockdown was announced their defiance began.

Burbank authorities first cited and fined Tinhorn Flats.  Lucas refused to pay and stayed open.  Burbank authorities cut their utilities.  Lucas brought in generators and stayed open.   Burbank authorities Red tagged his restaurant and locked the doors.  Lucas cut the locks and reopened.  Burbank authorities boarded up the doors and ‘red tagged’ again as unsafe.  Lucas sawed off the boards and reopened his business.  Burbank police then arrested Lucas.  Lucas made bail and was released.

Regular protests then began to support Lucas.  Burbank authorities came back and replaced the boards (thicker w/ security nails).  Lucas sawed off those boards and reopened business.  Burbank police then arrested Lucas the second time.  Lucas made bail and was released.  Burbank authorities again replaced the boards on the doors and added sand bags; (police later announced that anyone moving a sandbag would be arrested).  Lucas removed the sandbags.  Lucas was arrested, made bail and was released.

Today the city of Burbank installed fences around the property…. the battle continues.

Lucas and Baret Lepejian are being represented by attorney Mark Geragos [SEE HERE].

[embedded content]

Diana West puts it well:

As anyone can see from the Tinhorn Flats’ Instagram page, the restaurant supports freedom, capitalism and President Trump, and reviles tyranny, socialism and Governor Newsom. No wonder they are in the crosshairs — but no wonder they are in the fight! 

If you can’t show up, you can support the Tinhorn Flats Legal Defense Fund here.”

Cher: If They’re No Democrats to Protect America, GOP Will Achieve the Dream of White Supremacy

Left-wing pop superstar Cher believes Democrats are the only thing standing in the way of the GOP achieving what she says is the party’s “dream of white supremacy,” contending “they bring Jim Crow back” despite the fact that Democrats historically introduced, supported, and championed Jim Crow Laws in the U.S.

“’VOTER SUPPRESSION,’” Cher began. “2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back, Wrap Themselves In The,&Have Gone 2 ‘Whites Only’2BLK, ETHNIC,& POOR DEMS FROM VOTING,& WINNING.”

Criminals attempt to kidnap another little woman

“IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT,Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY’VE4. ‘WHITE SUPREMACY,’” the “Strong Enough” singer told her 3.9 million Twitter followers.

Cher later responded to a commenter who said “the right to vote shouldn’t come with barriers” in a democracy, triggering the left-wing activist to declare in all caps, “THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY‼️”

“ITS GOP’S MANTRA ‘WHITE IS RIGHT’,& ‘ONLY THE RIGHT PPL SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE’ Why aren’t Dems Quaking in Their Boots About The Browning of. I’m Excited.We Are Better Together,” she added.

Nowhere in Cher’s tweets did she mention the fact that the Democrat Party is solely responsible for pushing and enacting Jim Crow Laws in the United States. The Democrat Party championed slavery and segregation, dating back to the country’s founding through the Civil War era. All the while, Democrat Party figures stood hand in hand with the pro-slavery KKK and worked to usher in the era of Jim Crow. While history may be lost on modern-day woke leftists, Republicans, such as Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), remember and have made a point to bring the facts to the forefront of political discussions.

Last year, Gohmert introduced a privileged resolution to ban the Democrat Party for its roots of racism and ties to the Confederacy — a call which came as Democrats, ignoring their own history, began to demand historic statues to be taken down while calling for reparations in the name of equality.

Gohmert provided a list of key instances of the Democrat Party supporting and promoting racist policies, as Breitbart News detailed:

  • The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 stated “that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery . . . are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “new states” to the Union should be admitted “with or without domestic slavery, as [the state] may elect.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “we recognize the right of the people of all the Territories . . .  to form a Constitution, with or without domestic slavery.”
  • The Democratic Party platform of 1860, in seeking to uphold the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 that required law enforcement officials to arrest any individual suspected of being a runaway slave, stated that “the enactments of the State Legislatures to defeat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary in their effect.”
  • No Democrat in Congress supported the 14th Amendment, which gave full citizenship to freed slaves. It passed in 1868 with 94 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
  • No Democrat in Congress supported the 15th Amendment, which gave freed slaves the right to vote. It passed in 1870 with 100 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
  • Various state Democratic Party officials enacted policies to disenfranchise and “systematically suppress” the right of African Americans to vote. The resolution specifically cites the 1902 Constitution of the State of Virginia that disenfranchised about 90 percent of the African American voters at the time, forcibly reducing the number of eligible African American voters from about 147,000 in 1901 to about 10,000 by 1905. The resolution notes that this measure was “supported almost exclusively by Virginia Democrats.”
  • The administration of President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, “began a racial segregation policy for U.S. government employees and, by 1914, the Wilson administration’s Civil Service instituted the requirement that a photograph be submitted with each employment application.”
  • When the Democratic Party held its national convention in 1924 in New York City at Madison Square Garden, the event was commonly referred to as the “Klan-Bake” due to the influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the party.
  • Senate Democrats held a 75-calendar day filibuster against the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
  • Former Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), a known recruiter for the KKK, led the Democrats to oppose civil rights for African Americans.
  • Democrats “enacted and enforced Jim Crow laws and civil codes that forced segregation and restricted freedoms” for African Americans.
  • In June, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ordered the removal of the portraits of four previous Speakers of the House  who served in the Confederacy, stating that these portraits “set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry.” However, Gohmert’s resolution notes that the Speakers that Pelosi removed (Robert M.T. Hunter, Howell Cobb, James L. Orr, and Charles F. Crisp) were all Democrats.

Despite that, leftists, including Cher, have continued to ignore their own party’s history while accusing Republicans of attempting to usher in the era of Jim Crow by pursuing basic election integrity measures in states across the country.

“Some of these voter suppression laws in Georgia and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its ugly head once again. It is 160 years since the 13, 14, and 15th amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow stills seems to be with us,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said during a Senate Rules and Administration Committee hearing on S. 1, or the “For the People Act,” last month.

Notably, a majority of voters, including a majority of black and Hispanic voters, support basic election integrity measures, such as voter ID.

American, United, Southwest Grounding Boeing 737 Max Jets

American, United, and Southwest Airlines are grounding their Boeing 737 Max jets yet again due to what Boeing says are electrical system issues with the model.

Boeing says the airlines in question need to verify that one of the parts of the plane’s electrical system is sufficiently grounded. The company is working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fix the problem.

American said in a statement that it would ground 17 of the 24 737 Max planes they own, while United said it would ground 16 out of the 30 737 Max planes in their fleet. Southwest said it would ground 30 of the airline’s 58 737 Max planes in its fleet containing more than 700 planes.

All 737 Max planes were grounded worldwide between March 2019 and November 2020 after two fatal crashes occurred, killing 346 people on board those flights.

The airline manufacturer Boeing is not the only one under fire.

American Airlines and other companies have also come under fire from conservatives for supporting Major League Baseball (MLB)’s decision to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver due to a Georgia state law requiring voter identification at the polls.

When Texas passed a similar bill in the statehouse, American Airlines released a statement making its stance clear on voter ID.

“Earlier this morning, the Texas State Senate passed legislation with provisions that limit voting access. To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it,” the statement read.

“As a Texas-based business, we must stand up for the rights of our team members and customers who call Texas home and honor the sacrifices made by generations of Americans to protect and expand the right to vote,” the statement continued.

Republican House Judiciary Members Witness Border Crisis: This Is ‘Biden’s Mess’; America Has Become ‘Sanctuary Nation’

McALLEN, Texas — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) led several Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee on a two-day visit to McAllen this week where they witnessed the ongoing border crisis, and all the members — as they recapped their visit — said the Biden administration was at fault for surging numbers of illegal migrants.

Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 170,000 migrants crossing the southern border illegally in March, a 72 percent increase from February. As Breitbart News reported, in the first two full months of President Joe Biden’s time in office, February and March, apprehensions were at a combined total of nearly 210,000, while in the last four months of former President Donald Trump’s tenure, apprehensions were at a combined total of just over 280,000.

Jordan, the ranking Republican member on the Judiciary Committee, gathered from speaking with Border Patrol agents that the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program, also known as Remain in Mexico — which Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) suspended on his first day as president — is imperative to reinstate as a first step in controlling the migrant influx.

Jordan told Breitbart News on Wednesday near the conclusion of his visit, “This is … not just Jim Jordan talking, not just Republican members of the Judiciary Committee talking. This is the Border Patrol agents themselves, what they’re telling us. That’s what we’ve got to get done, and we have to talk about this and try to persuade our Democratic colleagues this is just good common sense. This is for the good of the country, and frankly, it’s for the good of these kids and these families who are making that treacherous trek up through Mexico to get here.”

The MPP program allowed border officials to return asylum-seeking migrants back to Mexico while they await the processing of their claims, which the Trump administration at the time of implementing the program, in January 2019, said would serve as a deterrent for illegal migration and help control an “unprecedented number” of “fraudulent asylum claims.”

Opponents of the MPP program argue sending asylum-seekers back to Mexico puts them in potentially unsanitary or dangerous conditions and creates nearly insurmountable barriers to being granted asylum if they do actually qualify for it.

However, as Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) detailed during a roundtable the delegation attended Wednesday, halting the MPP program has served as one cause — among several other Biden policies — of what has now become America’s “massive humanitarian crisis.”

“We know that it’s policy driven,” Biggs said. “We know that it’s this Biden administration’s policies that have done this. Why do we know that? Because we simply have to look at when those policies were in place. I’m talking MPP, the Remain in Mexico policy. I’m talking about the agreements with the Northern Triangle states, with Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. I’m talking about the incentive factor. We all respond to incentives. How about $1,400 per illegal alien in the COVID relief package? How about a free education? How about, you’ll get transported wherever you need to go? And once you’re in, it’s almost impossible for you to be sent out, and that’s really what’s going on. And so, President Trump found a problem, and he solved it. President Biden saw a solution and now he’s dissolved that and created a massive humanitarian crisis.”

Biggs, at a press conference later on Wednesday, referred to comments Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador made: “That’s why the president of Mexico said this is Biden’s mess. It is Biden’s mess.”

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC), who also attended the trip, agreed asylum claims are a “predicate for people entering the country.” He told Breitbart News of the MPP program, “It was an innovative, strategic policy to eliminate the perverse incentive in asylum claims. They can assert their asylum right, but you don’t want as the price of that to have any unlimited numbers of people coming into the country.”

The House Judiciary Committee is the committee that has primary jurisdiction over immigration policy. Jordan said at the press conference the committee’s Democrat members were invited on the trip and declined the invitation. Breitbart News reached out to committee chair Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to inquire about the reason for this and did not receive an immediate response.

Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA), the lead Republican on the committee’s subcommittee on immigration, said the Biden administration also shares blame for the swell of illegal migration because of his 100-day moratorium on most deportations. “My assessment is that Biden’s executive order on returning criminal illegals, deporting them after they’ve served their terms, now essentially makes the United States a sanctuary nation,” McClintock said during the roundtable.

Despite a federal judge blocking Biden’s moratorium in February, a Wall Street Journal analysis found Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s job priorities have still changed under the new administration’s policies as indicated by a drop of 50 percent in deportations in March compared with deportations in the months at the end of Trump’s tenure.

Biden’s DHS issued a memo on his first day in office justifying calling for the moratorium, saying DHS must “surge resources” to the southern border to “ensure safe, legal, and orderly processing, to rebuild fair and effective asylum procedures that respect human rights and due process … and to prioritize responding to threats to national security, public safety, and border security.”

The delegation’s consensus, however, was that Biden’s immigration policies and rhetoric about such policies have created a magnet for illegal migration and resulted in what has become growing and uncontrollable numbers of illegal migrants.

Two other members of the Judiciary Committee in attendance, Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN) and Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT), railed against Biden for failing to acknowledge the issue. “Not dealing with this issue, not looking at the policies, I think it’s a complete lack of leadership and disregard,” Spartz told Breitbart News.

Owens surmised, “It’s either incompetence or it’s on purpose.”

AZ Gov. Ducey Signs Bill into Law that Prohibits Private Funding of Election Administration

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill into law on Friday that prohibits the private funding of election administration in the state.

Arizona is now the first state in the country that specifically prohibits the controversial private funding of election administration that was introduced to the American political process in the 2020 presidential election, when Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg contributed $419 million to two non-profit groups that in turn funded state, county, and local election administration, which critics say benefited Democrats unfairly.

“With public confidence in our elections in peril, it’s clear our elections must be pristine and above reproach — and the sole purview of government,” the Associated Press reported Ducey wrote in a letter expressing his reasons for signing the bill into law.

The bill, HB 2569, passed the Arizona House of Representatives in a straight party-line vote, 31 to 29, in March. Last week, it passed the Arizona State Senate, also in a straight party-line vote, 16 to 14.

Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson praised Gov. Ducey, a Republican, for signing the bill into law in a statement released late Friday:

Gov. Doug Ducey stood up for all Arizonans by taking swift action and signing this historic election integrity law. HB 2569 is another in a series of strong measures Arizona lawmakers have taken to protect election integrity and keep the influence of private money out of Arizona’s election system operations. Arizonans deserve an election process free from outside influence and partisan funding — by banning corporate and private funding for election operations, this law will safeguard that system.

State Rep. Jake Hoffman and the grassroots activists of Arizona worked hard to advance HB 2569 and other common-sense legislation to ensure Arizona’s elections are fair and transparent. As Arizona legislators continue working to pass further election integrity legislation, they should do so with the knowledge that they are supported by the people of Arizona.

The Associated Press reported that Arizona Democrats blamed underfunding by Republicans for Zuckerberg’s private funding of election administration in the state in 2020:

“It’s easy to make a boogeyman ou[t] of billionaires. I don’t like them either. But we put ourselves in this situation,” Sen. Juan Mendez, a Tempe Democrat, said of the Legislature’s budgeting decisions. “Our elections are so underfunded we’ve got counites out there asking for money to do voter outreach.”

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs used $4.8 million from the Center for Election Innovation and Research for an advertising campaign telling voters when and how to vote, encourage signup for the permanent early voting list, recruit poll workers and combat misinformation before and after the election.

Arizona Secretary of State Hobbs, a Democrat, was one of the state election officials in 23 states who accepted monies from the Zuckerberg-funded Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), as Breitbart News reported in November. The Secretary of State in eight of those states was a Republican, including Georgia, where Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger accepted a “large grant” from CEIR.

As Breitbart News reported in December:

A report released by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society at a press conference on Wednesday alleged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife made $419.5 million in contributions to non-profit organizations during the 2020 election cycle–$350 million to the “Safe Elections” Project of the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and another $69.5 million to the Center for Election Innovation and Research–that, “improperly influence[d] the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party.”

“The 2020 presidential election witnessed an unprecedented and coordinated public-private partnership to improperly influence the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party. Funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and other high-tech interests, activist organizations created a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican strongholds,” Amistad Project Director Phill Kline wrote in the report’s executive summary.

According to a report released by the Foundation for Government Accountability in March, the CTCL spent more than $5 million in grants for election administration in nine Arizona counties in 2020:

While CTCL has not yet disclosed full details about how much was distributed to each grantee during the 2020 election, publicly available data shows that CTCL funneled more than $5 million into nine Arizona jurisdictions.8 Based on the preliminary numbers, a large share of that money was spent in counties carried by President Biden.9 Unsurprisingly, Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in America and home to more than 60 percent of Arizona’s voters, received more than half of all Zuckerbucks distributed in the state. . .

While data is limited due to CTCL’s unwillingness to make full reports on grant allocations and spending public, initial analysis points to Zuckerbucks having an influence on election outcomes in Arizona. On average, counties that received Zuckerbucks saw the Democratic presidential candidate’s share of the vote increase compared to the 2016 election.

For example, in Maricopa County, the only county in the state to flip in the 2020 election, President Trump increased his vote total by more than 248,000 votes yet lost the county to Biden. In 2020, Biden improved on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 vote total in the county by more than 337,000 votes. This nearly 90,000-vote difference cannot be explained by registration increases. While Democratic voter registration in Maricopa County has grown more than Republican registration since the 2016 election, the net increase was fewer than 50,000 votes and registered Republicans still outnumber registered Democrats by more than 100,000 voters. In counties that went for Biden in 2020, Zuckerbucks seem to have helped boost Democratic turnout.

Several other state legislatures are considering bills to ban the private funding of election administration.

Georgia’s Election Integrity Act, signed into law by Gov. Kemp in March, included a clause designed to ban the private funding of election administration, but the Amistad Project’s Phill Kline believes that law may contain loopholes.

Kline has praised the simple one sentence language of Arizona’s new law–“Notwithstanding any other law, this state and a city, town, county, school district or other public body that conducts or administers elections may not receive or expend private monies for preparing for, administering or conducting an election, including registering voters” — as the gold standard and model for other states that seek to ban the private funding of election administration.
