E-commerce giant Amazon will reportedly pay $61.7 million to settle allegations by the FTC that the company failed to pay Flex delivery drivers the full amount of tips given to them by customers. An FTC official commented: “Rather than passing along 100% of customers’ tips to drivers, as it had promised to do, Amazon used the money itself. Our action today returns to drivers the tens of millions of dollars in tips that Amazon misappropriated, and requires Amazon to get drivers’ permission before changing its treatment of tips in the future.”
NBC News reports that Amazon will pay a $61.7 million settlement over allegations by the FTC that it failed to pay Flex delivery drivers the full amount of tips that they were owed. The commission voted 4-0 in favor of the settlement.
The FTC alleges that in 2016 Amazon shifted from paying divers the promised rate of $18 to $25 per hour, plus tips, to paying a much lower hourly rate. Amazon allegedly “intentionally failed” to notify drivers of the change and used tips received from customers to make up the difference between the original promised rate and the lower hourly rate.
Daniel Kaufman, acting director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a statement: “Rather than passing along 100% of customers’ tips to drivers, as it had promised to do, Amazon used the money itself. Our action today returns to drivers the tens of millions of dollars in tips that Amazon misappropriated, and requires Amazon to get drivers’ permission before changing its treatment of tips in the future.”
An Amazon spokesperson told CNBC that the company disagrees with the FTC’s claims that the driver payment model was unclear, stating: “While we disagree that the historical way we reported pay to drivers was unclear, we added additional clarity in 2019 and are pleased to put this matter behind us. Amazon Flex delivery partners play an important role in serving customers every day, which is why they earn among the best in the industry at over $25 per hour on average.”
Amazon will pay more than $61.7 million to the FTC which will be used by the agency to compensate Flex drivers. The settlement further prohibits Amazon from misrepresenting any driver’s likely income or rate of pay, how much of their tips they will receive, and whether the amount paid by a customer is a tip.

Attorney Sidney Powell joined Lou Dobbs on Monday night to discuss the 2020 election fraud investigations.
Powell has filed Kraken cases in Georgia and Michigan so far. The popular attorney is also talking about filing charges in Virginia after the obvious corruption and fraud during the election.
Powell spoke with an equally upset Lou Dobbs about the struggles this president is now facing after the stolen election was called by the liberal media.
Her most memorable line came at the end of the interview.
AttorneySidney Powell: It affects the bedrock of our democratic republic. It can’t be allowed to stand and, frankly, I’m about to think the entire FBI and the entire Department of Justice need to be hosed out with Clorox and firehoses.
The democrats, having failed in every effort to oust President Trump from the White House up until the Election (RussiaGate, UkraineGate, COVID-19 Scamdemic), would now see the 2020 Election as their best opportunity to remove the major thorn in the democrat’s, deep state’s, and China’s side. They had already began the steps of a color revolution. Besides, the deep state had essentially been manipulating elections for decades and had prolonged the COVID-19 pandemic scare by ramping up testing and counting asymptomatic positive tests with a faulty PCR test as cases. The democrats brought over 300 different lawsuits in the 50 states to change the election rules during 2020, all under the guise the “deadly” China coronavirus.
Tucker Carlson discussed the ‘color revolution’ and Norm Eisen, ironically Obama’s Ethics Czar, was reportedly behind the resistance and the efforts to remove President Trump from office. The elites, liberal media, the Justice Department, the courts, the Democrats, China, the CIA, the FBI, the courts, Big Tech, Big Media and many in the Republican Party were all involved as they have all become part of the beast system, the criminal cabal that wants to rule the world. Obama and the deep state never surrendered the White House as they attempted several coup attempts against the Trump Administration during his term.
For weeks after the 2020 election President Trump and anyone paying attention argued the election was rigged. President Trump even warned months before the election that the only way Republicans could lose was in a rigged election. Even leftist Molly Ball admitted, in a surprising article from Time Magazine, that the election was rigged against Donald Trump by a secret cabal of wealthy and politically connected elites.
Prominent Attorney L. Lin Wood, who successfully represented teen Nicholas Sandmann in defamation suits against The Washington Post and CNN, joined the president’s efforts to win back the 2020 election and within a week implicated (1) several deep state players for treasonous crimes: Biden, Obama, and Hillary & Bill Clinton; (2) the fake news media: CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, NY Times, Washington Post, Atlantic, Mother Jones, etc. as co-conspirators; and the Chinese Communist Party via the Dominion Voting software. Sidney Powell added thatGina Haspel and the CIA must have known the Dominion voting systems had serious flaws, but Haspel and the CIA did nothing.
The original plan was to flood the US with enough illegals in sanctuary cities (mostly in swing states) to help steal the election, but since President Trump mostly cut off this avenue, all of the usual tactics and then some would need to be taken: mail-in ballots galore (including dead people (and dead pets) and out of staters), double voting, registering and voting people, changing existing ballots, bail-out of criminals for their votes (Lebron James and Bloomberg), propaganda and more propaganda from the controlled media, contest unfavorable results, etc.
Ron Klain, chief of staff designate for Joe Biden, said in 2014 that “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” Klain replied. “That’s because they are.” Biden had been stealing from the American taxpayers for 47 years so stealing an election away from the American voters was right up his alley, even though he was ironically once (2007) worried about being on the wrong side of election fraud. Everything was game-planned in advance by the Transition Integrity Project, a think tank organization that blueprinted the Left and Deep State plan to secure a Biden victory in the 2020 presidential election, including mail-in voting, suppression of speech via social-media censorship, and “mass mobilization” (read: riots) on America’s streets.
According to whistleblowers, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden personally visited Serbia to take part in a scheme that gave Democrats control of America’s Dominion voting machines in coordination with Eric Holder’s Justice Department. The plot is also linked to the Chinese, the Clinton Foundation, and George Soros. Dominion’s software was designed specifically for dictator Hugo Chavez to steal elections and maintain power, and what happened in America’s election matches what happened in Venezuala’s elections. Below, Joe Biden, who loves to brag, boasts 10 days before the election about having “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” If you think this was just another gaff, think again. No wonder he also said: “I don’t need you to get elected, but I need you once I’m elected.”
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden outperforms the prediction line by 78% in counties that use the Dominion or HART InterCivic voting machines, according to a data analyst with 30 years of experience. “Analysis evidence suggests the use of the Dominion X/ICX BMD (Ballot Marking Device) machine, manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems, and machines from HART InterCivic appear to have abnormally influenced election results,” the data analyst wrote in a report that went public on December 17th.
Joe Biden couldn’t get a couple of dozen people out to most of his rallies, yet we are to believe that this senile, perhaps incestuous, pedophilecriminal who has been selling out America to foreign countries all over the world and in their pocket (China, Ukraine, Iran, etc.) and using his son and other family members as bag men, set a democrat record with over 80 million votes – smashing Obama’s record 69 million? Biden lost 212 more counties than Barack Obama did in 2012 (Biden won 16% or 477 counties vs Obama who won 689 vs Trump’s 2497 counties – 84%), yet Biden magically gained 13 million more votes than Obama? Trump also won 95% of the Bellweather counties that have a perfect record of predicting the President. I sure as hell don’t buy it. Jerome Corsi said on a podcast that voter fraud may have accounted for more than half of his votes. That, I CAN believe!
NSA whistleblower and top cryptologist Bill Binney tweeted: “With 212Million registered voters and 66.2% voting, 140.344 M voted. Now if Trump got 74 M, that leaves only 66.344 M for Biden. These numbers don’t add up to what we are being told.”
President Trump also broke his own turnout record so the powers that be were going to get however many they needed to win – as long as they could get away with it. He received 12 million more votes than in 2016, an increase of more than any incumbent in history. He grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016 and increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent.
For years, Democrats have been making Phase One fraud easier. Here are some of the methods they’ve used, often justifying them on minority civil rights grounds:
Motor voter registration (people are registered when they get a driver’s license), creating a massive number of registered voters, most of whom don’t vote.
Refusing to clean up voter registration rolls, creating millions of registrations tied to people who died or relocated.
Banning ID requirements at polling places.
Banning poll workers from comparing signatures on ballot sign-up sheets or mail-in envelopes to those on record.
Extending voting to a month-long period.
Absentee voting for anyone who desires.
Mailing ballots to every registered voter.
Voting only by mail.
Ballot-harvesting, which allows activists to collect ballots from voters and submit them. Harvesters can fill out ballots or dispose of ballots with which they disagree.
All of the above Democrat initiatives make the following types of fraud easier, particularly when paired with chicanery at the polling site, such as banning poll-observers:
People voting using another person’s ballot.
Postal workers backdating mailed in ballots.
Insiders obtaining and completing blank ballots en masse.
Repeatedly feeding the same ballots into voting machines.
Throwing out Trump votes.
Completing incomplete ballots.
Faking same-day registrations of non-existent voters.
Throwing out mail-in envelopes to make it impossible to winnow out fraudulent ballots.
The above efforts require human agency on a ballot by ballot basis. Moreover, hand recounts will not catch them, so the same illegal votes still get counted. Trump’s team has acquired thousands of affidavits proving these frauds. The huge numbers, though, occur when the ballots get fed into computers. The primary computer systems used in America — Dominion and ES&S — are vulnerable to hacking, and their information is poorly secured (and, in the case of ES&S, runs through Europe and Russia). Additionally, Dominion systems have a built-in program that can automatically add a multiplier to a candidate. (For example, it could multiply every Biden vote by 1.5, increasing his count by 50%.)
Thankfully, computers are lousy conspirators because they cannot do things randomly. If a program forces a specific action upon a particular trigger, computers will repeat that action endlessly, affecting hundreds of thousands of votes and creating data patterns that cannot occur naturally. These peculiar patterns have shown up only in swing states where Trump was winning overwhelmingly, only to have his votes instantaneously transferred to Biden or to receive zero votes from mail-in ballots. Even Democrat-heavy mail-in ballots wouldn’t behave that way. These are statistical impossibilities.
Here’s how they did it…
Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste
Use Covid as Excuse to Push Mail-In Ballots
By now we’re all familiar with the inequities, even idiocies, of the Covid-19 lockdown rules. In many states and cities, it’s forbidden to have normal assembly for social gatherings, businesses, church services, and even hospital visits. On the other hand, it’s okay to have massive Black Lives Matter protests, Antifa riots, and anything else the left approves of, at least tacitly. Obviously, such unequal treatment is a formula for societal frustration, rage, and, yes, chaos. And what a friend the Democrats have in crisis and chaos!
In fact, Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris has said that this sort of chaos is likely to continue—and should continue—through the election. “Everyone beware because they’re not going to stop,” Harris said about the (often violent) protests erupting in American cities. “They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day.” But according to the Democrats, the only certainty in all of this chaos is that Americans—who are safe to take to the streets in mass protests and riots—are not safe to vote in person on November 3. We must vote by mail, they tell us. Mail-in voting is “essential from a health reason because we want to keep people at home to vote without having them all collect on Election Day,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said last month. “People should not have to choose between their health and their vote.”
If you’re still scratching your head wondering why it’s safe to riot but not to vote, veteran political consultant Dick Morris explained the Democrats’ game plan: “If they feel they’re legitimately losing the election, [they] are going to use the excuse of the Covid virus—nobody can come out and vote in person, they claim … and they’re going to deliberately game the system by sending out millions and millions of mail-in ballots for people that don’t exist or have already voted. And the states will not verify the [mail-in ballot] signatures because they are under the control of Democrats,” Morris added.
Well, millions of people did end up voting in person and millions of mail-in ballots were sent out. The Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice recommended in late September that states should carry an incredible number of ballots on election day – up to 40% of all election day voters. Were many of these filled out by poll workers while watchers were kept too far away to see what was happening? Soros also funded, along with several government agencies and NGO’s, a vote-buying scheme where Native Americans in Arizona, Nevada and a slew of other states were given gift cards, televisions, electronics, and even resort stays in exchange for voting.
According to FiveThirtyEight, nine states and the District of Columbia mailed every registered citizen a ballot. In another 14 states, authorities mailed everyone an application to vote by mail. In 16 states, nothing was automatically mailed to voters, although voters could apply online to vote by mail. In six states, voting by mail is permissible only with a “valid excuse.” And the remaining states are some hybrid of the preceding categories. All of these different rules provided plenty of opportunity to game the system on questions ranging from the verification of identity, addresses, and signatures to the timeliness of postmarks and the ability of the postal service to deliver ballots in a timely manner. Because there are so many “moving parts” to the vote-by-mail process, mail-in ballots are fraught with the potential for fraud.
Tens of thousands of dead and duplicant registrants in several states would seem to be a serious indictment of the system and a warning against mailing unsolicited mail-in ballots or even mail-in ballot applications to everyone on the voter rolls. But Democrats worked hard to bulldoze the path for vote-by mail, or, as Breitbart News often calls it, cheat-by-mail. The democrats also fight to block meaningful efforts to ensure that only eligible American citizens are voting. When Republicans enact legislation to encourage transparency and accuracy in our voting process by removing dead or ineligible voters from the rolls or mandating some form of identity verification, left-wing activists challenge these initiatives in court to stop any reform.
Before the election, anticipating a battle of the courts, tthe Biden-Harris campaign built a SWAT team of 600 lawyers, expecting many more recruits to come. This excludes the legal teams working in their behalf at all times such as the SPLC and the ACLU. Kamala Harris warned Democrats of the many “obstacles” Republicans would “intentionally plac(e) in front of Americans’ ability to vote. We have classic voter suppression. We have a president who is trying to convince the American people not to believe in the integrity of our election system and compromise their belief that their vote might actually count.” By “voter suppression,” she means any effort to make sure that only eligible living non-pet American citizens are voting in November.
Eric Eggers, the author of Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election, explained to Breitbart News how left-wing interest groups (many Soros-funded) have fought for years to keep the loopholes that could potentially create a “tsunami of voter fraud” in November. Eggers adds that the left “fund(s) organizations that go out and round up voters, regardless of legality of their status, and force them through the vulnerabilities in the system.”
The 2020 election was stolen because leftists were able to exploit the coronavirus pandemic to weaken, alter, and eliminate laws that were put in place over the course of decades to preserve the integrity of the ballot box. They blatantly violated the laws they could not change such as the ‘chain of custody‘ laws which were violated in every swing state and then some. But just as importantly, it was stolen because those same leftists had a thoroughly-crafted plan, and because they were rigorous in its implementation and ruthless in its execution. Democrat non-profit organizations [funded by Hillary, Soros, China (owns Dominion and bribed elected officials), Steyer, Zuckerberg, etc.] were put in place to funnel millions into the election process. In numerous states, officials also absurdly consolidated the vote-counting and ballot-curing process in sporting arenas and other large venues, rather than the ward- and precinct-level offices that normally handle the job. This made absolutely no sense as a pandemic-related safety measure, but that didn’t stop the officials from citing COVID as their rationale.
Consolidating the vote-counting tied the other efforts together. Instead of a manageable number of ballots being transported to small offices and counted in the immediate presence of observers from both parties, truckloads of ballots were brought to a single location, inevitably resulting in confusion and commingling of ballots from various sources. At the same time, election officials could claim that they were adhering to legal requirements that observers be “in the room” during the counting process while using COVID as an excuse for relegating those observers to the “penalty box,” far from the actual counting and curing.
This was particularly egregious when it came to ballot “curing,” a process that actually involves election workers, paid directly by Zuckerberg-funded CTCL’s grants, filling out brand new ballots on behalf of voters whose ballots purportedly could not be read by machine. This could have been due to something the voter themselves did, such as spilling coffee on the ballot. It also could have been due to something that election workers themselves did, such as crumpling ballots to prevent the machines from receiving them, just as a vending machine rejects crumpled bills. It’s impossible to know exactly what happened, because Republican observers were denied meaningful access to the process — and in some cases literally locked out of the counting rooms while election workers obscured the windows with cardboard.1
Amistad Project Director Phillip Kline obtained a court order from the Middle District of Pennsylvania to view Philadelphia’s communications with CTCL. He said, “that CTCL dictated the way the election would be run in Philadelphia, how many polling places they would have, they paid the election officials, they paid the satellite election officials, they paid the judges, they brought in these drop boxes.” He says we effectively have a shadow government because the total federal funding for elections has been matched by Zuckerberg’s funding and that the partisan effect of this funding is a violation of equal protection laws. He says there is a lot of evidence of this in swing states.2
A report by Stat News states that at the end of October Pfizer changed their planned testing protocol, placing samples in cold storage and not testing them until the after the November 3 election, when they released news that they had 90 percent fewer symptomatic infections of the China coronavirus than those given a placebo. President Trump repeatedly said throughout the pandemic that it looked like a vaccine might be announced in October. It appears he was on the right track, but the globalist controlled science community decided to hold off until after the election just to, once again, make him look bad.1 MSM falsely claimed the Pfizer vaccine was not part of the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed.
The globalists, with operatives found throughout politics and the medical establishment, pushed mask mandates, social distancing, contact tracing and social distancing as a means to promote a culture of fear amonth the populace, thus making the need for mail-in ballots (the easiest means of election fraud) a necessity, according to the desperate democrats, who are in the pockets of the globalists.
Enlist all the Messengers at Your Disposal (Hollywood, Pro Sports, Corporate Media, Big Tech)
Not only did the deep state use their control over the medical establishment, they also leveraged their control over the media establishment, including Fox News, to try to steal the election and gaslight the public that Biden won with no fraud, or an insignificant amount. The media would not report on the cheating that was rampant, large-scale, and audacious.
Hollywood Liberal Mouthpieces – As early as April, about a month into the coronavirus shutdown, the Hollywood wing of the Democrat-Media Complex kicked into high gear to push vote-by-mail. Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, who were among the first big name figures to contract Covid-19, teamed up with former First Lady Michelle Obama and former Obama White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett in April for an ostensibly non-partisan virtual voter registration drive that encouraged states to loosen vote-by-mail requirements. In August, a group of A-list celebrities hosted a virtual “United to Save the Vote” gala—which they claimed was “fiercely nonpartisan”—to raise money to “protect the 2020 election” by, in part, increasing trust in mail-in voting. The virtual roster included Jennifer Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, Dave Matthews, Ed Helms, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Sia, Jake Johnson, Sarah Silverman, Kenan Thompson, Chelsea Handler, Gloria Estefan, Randall Park, Erich Bergen, Nick Kroll, Sophia Bush, Jonathan Scott, Kenny G., George Lopez, etc. You get the picture. According to the event’s website, thesezealouslyanti-Trump “fiercely nonpartisan” celebs gathered virtually to counter the efforts of “politicians who are undermining the security and validity of mail-in voting.” Meanwhile, the Democrat-Media Complex engaged in a bit of journalistic jujitsu churning out stories about how the Republicans were the ones who planned to steal the election. Here’s a headline from the Washington Post: “Republicans’ long-term vote heist matters more than Trump’s tantrums.” And here’s one from Rolling Stone: “The Plot Against America: The GOP’s Plan to Suppress the Vote and Sabotage the Election.” But it’s hard to top this headline from the Daily Beast: “This Is How Republicans Steal an Election, and Maybe Kill Some Dems in the Process.”
Pop star and anti-fracking advocate Lady Gaga campaigned with Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Election Eve, together with several local student activists. Gaga had previously (on Oct 31st) teased in a condescending video that she would be appearing in one of the battleground states before the election.
Big League Politics reported that “young black students” were being recruited to relieve veteran poll workers with experience in the vote counting process. The excuse of COVID-19 was used to scare some elderly poll workers into bowing out and being replaced by these ringers. Some election officials, like Georgia’s Gabriel Sterling, used the far-left ACLU as poll workers and likely even as ‘curers.’ The Campus Vote Project, a wing of the Fair Elections Center which was funded by the New Venture Fund – heavily funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Ford Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, and other globalist NGO’s – was setting this operation up.
Pro Sports Liberal Mouthpieces – At the same time, the Democrat-Media Complex is also celebrating the new wokeness of pro sports, which was busy trying to help Democrats win. On September 7, Politico asked, “Could LeBron James Defeat Donald Trump?” As has been widely reported, the National Basketball Association agreed to set up a “social justice coalition” to help get out the (Democrat) vote. The propagandist NBA, with “Black Lives Matter” decals on every teams floor and social justice messages on the players backs, replacing their names, saw their viewership tank. Many players (NFL, NBA, WNBA, Soccer, etc.) knelt during the playing of the national anthem, only angering patriots.
Basketball player Lebron James, who also spent ~27 million to bail out criminals so they could vote), worked with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Power the Polls to recruit more poll workers. Then, these young new student poll workers, likely Black Lives Matter activists and Trump-haters, were trained in tactics of how to cheat according to one #DetroitLeaks report that has been widely censored (Video at Rumble). The Gateway Pundit asked the DOJ to investigate PA’s Sec. of State Kathy Boockvar’s ‘cease & desist’ order to to get Big League Politics to remove all stories, audio, and video related to #DetroitLeaks, the reporting by intrepid journalist Shane Trejo.
The Media – Yet again, the landslide victory for Biden predicted by the propaganda pollsters were way off, but it’s by design. Polls are only meant to persuade voters towards a desired outcome and the result is herd behavior by many to follow the majority. On November 6th, Biden Campaign Spokesperson Andrew Bates was already threatening to have President Donald Trump escorted from the White House in January, despite the results not being in yet.
Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University, who was practically alone in predicting Donald Trump’s historic win in 2016, released his final predictions for the 2020 election on the eve of election day 2020 and gave President Trump a 91% chance of winning (with 362 electoral votes) vs a 9% chance for Biden. A Draft Kings Election Pool update posted on the eve of Election Day showed that a majority of participants in 49 states believe that President Donald Trump will emerge as the victor in the presidential election. These opinion polls have been very accurate throughout the years in predicting who would win the election – moreso than sample polls. These polls DID get it right. Trump’s massive boat parades during the summer versus Biden’s inability to hold a rally of more than 30 people just doesn’t pass the sniff test.
The 2020 election was a well scripted media propaganda campaign to manipulate the American voters. The decision desk had a hair trigger when it came to calling states for Biden while on the other hand, was very gun shy to call states for President Trump. This kept Biden in the lead throughout the election. Never at any point did President Trump lead, in spite of having commanding leads in many east coast states that were not called. Before Florida was finally called for Trump when it had been obvious for well over an hour that Biden had no chance of making up the difference, only after California was called for Biden immediately after the polls closed there thus bumping Biden another 55 Electoral Votes before Trump could get Florida’s 29.
The gaslighting continued after the election. It was the media who pronounced Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election on 11/7, the Saturday following Big Tuesday. Nevermind that not a single state had certified the votes in their states and declared Biden the winner of even a single state. Nevermind that the media does not determine who is the president, they are only supposed to report it, but the coup was on and they continued to censor almost every availableproof of fraud… and it was massive. They just denied it and lied to the world about it.
According to the establishment media, the instances of mail-in voter fraud are “infinitesimally small.” And to prove this, the media loves to quote the “non-partisan” Brennan Center for Justice. What the media fails to tell you is that the Soros-funded Brennan Center led the charge to expand mail-in voting. They don’t just have a dog in this fight — they have a whole kennel! Quoting the Brennan Center to deny the reality of mail-in voter fraud is like quoting Big Tobacco to deny that smoking causes cancer.
Under the pretext of assisting election officials conduct “safe and secure” elections in the age of COVID, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg donated $500 million, violating election laws, to nonprofit organizations founded and run by left-wing activists. It was supposed to be equally proportioned, but went 10 to 1 Democrats to Republicans, and the Republicans who did get funding appear dirty or RINOs. The primary recipient was the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), which received the staggering sum of $350 million. Prior to Zuckerberg’s donations, CTCL’s annual operating expenses averaged less than $1 million per year. How was Zuckerberg even aware of such a small-potatoes operation, and why did he entrust it with ⅞ of the money he was pouring into this election cycle, despite the fact that it had no prior experience handling such a massive amount of money?
Predictably, given the partisan background of its leading officers, CTCL proceeded to distribute Zuckerberg’s funds to left-leaning counties in battleground states. The vast majority of the money handed out by CTCL — especially in the early days of its largesse — went to counties that voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Some of the biggest recipients, in fact, were the very locales Plouffe had identified as the linchpins of the Democrat strategy in 2020. Zuckerberg and CTCL left nothing to chance, however, writing detailed conditions into their grants that dictated exactly how elections were to be conducted, down to the number of ballot drop boxes and polling places. The Constitution gives state lawmakers sole authority for managing elections, but these grants put private interests firmly in control.
Amistad Project lawyers tried to prevent this unlawful collusion by filing a flurry of lawsuits in eight states prior to Election Day. Unfortunately, judges were forced to put those lawsuits aside without consideration of their merits because the plaintiffs had not yet suffered “concrete harm” in the form of fraudulent election results. The law had no remedy to offer because the left’s lawless schemes had not yet reached fruition.
In the meantime, CTCL continued splashing Zuckerberg’s cash — only now, the organization was intent on finding Republican-leaning jurisdictions to give its donations a veneer of bipartisanship. Of course, the number of votes in play in those counties paled in comparison to those in the liberal counties. Philadelphia County alone, for instance, projected that the $10 million grant it received from CTCL would enable it to increase turnout by 25-30 percent — translating to well over 200,000 votes. (Breibart)
Facebook also placed a former Joe Biden advisor on Ukraine and a recipient of a George Soros fellowship, Anna Makanju, as their lead Executive on election policy. Following the election and the fake news announcement of Biden as the victor, Facebook removed “President” from President Trump’s account and replaced it with “Political Candidate.” They suspended many accounts of individuals sharing information regarding election fraud or Hunter Biden laptop information. They banned the #StopThesteal Trump Rally Facebook page in less than 24 hours after it frew to over 350,000 followers.
As reported by National File, Whistleblowers Dana Jill Simpson and her husband Jim are election integrity and technology experts who have worked for Tides Foundation insiders (the Tides Canada Foundation shares office space in Toronto with Dominion Voting Systems’ headquarters). They are both anti-war progressives in the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat Party (Dominion voting machines were used to steal the election for Hillary over Bernie in the 2016 democrat primary race). Dana Jill Simpson has been investigating Dominion for years, and she brought her concerns about voter fraud to the FBI in 2016 — including information about Dominion — but the FBI ignored her pleas for help.
“I got a tip that Biden took a Trip on May 20th 2009 and that is when he cut a deal to help Serbian Hackers in Belgrade where he was visiting to get control of info about ES and S Machines so he and Obama would have a better chance in 2012. Well, not only did they get a better chance but Biden had Holder force ES and S in a divesture suit in the Antitrust department in the US DOJ to give over half of ES and S to Serbian programmers for Dominion Voting Systems. Such a disgusting situation,” Dana Jill Simpson said. The date for Biden’s May 2009 Serbia trip checks out. Obama administration was also caught attempting to breach Georgia’s election firewall.
The Obama-Biden administration literally gave Dominion its market share through a 2010 forced divestiture. A March 8, 2010 press release from Eric Holder’s Department of Justice entitled “Justice Department Requires Key Divestiture in Election Systems & Software/Premier Election Solutions Merger” announced that DOJ was forcing a divestiture of election technology from a top company. Dominion ended up getting that technology and thus nearly a third of the electronic voting systems market in America.
The Science Defies Politics blog reported: “It is not clear what products or services the company has developed. It found almost no buyers, until Obama was elected in 2008. In 2009, New York ordered a few dozens of systems from it. In 2010, Obama’s DOJ (Holder – Mueller) took the EVS unit, purchased from Diebold, away from the market leader ES&S, and gave it to Dominion. This gift included the installed base of about 30% of the US electronic voting systems (EVS) market. Within two weeks, Dominion also acquired Sequoia, which was formally spun from Smartmatic, but ties between these two companies remained. Smartmatic is a UK based EVS vendor, whose software was used by Chavez to “win” the Venezuelan referendum in 2004. Smartmatic’s unit Sequoia faced troubles in the US. Those troubles quickly ended when its assets were purchased by Dominion.”
Dominion Voting Systems is a corrupt front for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). An investigation by Austin Security and Investigation Solutions into SEC filings has revealed that the firm which owns Dominion Voting Systems, Staple Street Capital, received $400 million dollars from a Swiss bank, UBS Securities, with close links to the Chinese government less than a month before the election. Aside from UBS, the other four owners of UBS Securities are all Communist Chinese front groups. In Beijing, current and former board members are tied to Chinese communist military and intelligence agencies. In New York, three out of four UBS board members are Chinese.

Laura Loomer reported that the software for Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, two Voting machine manufacturers with histories of election fraud and connected to shady characters, also includes security applications by Bill Gates Microsoft installed in 2019. It’s called ElectionGuard and according to the official release “is accessible by design.” Microsofts “Defending Democracy” Program reveals that one of its core goals is “Defending against disinformation campaigns in partnership with leading academic institutions and think tanks dedicated to countering state-sponcered computational propaganda and junk news”.A data scientist who wished to remain anonymous, posted several anomalies in swing states that left ‘fingerprints of fraud’ as Biden pulled ahead of President Trump. Using time series data ‘scraped’ from the NY Times, based on their proprietary “Edison” data source which would ordinarily be impossible to access for people outside the press, the data showed several anomalies that indicate fraud. See the full report HERE.
Electronic manipulation was caught in real time in at least five states due to live coverage and real-time tallies of votes. In his statement to Sidney Powell, Dr. Keshavarz-Nia, an experienced ethical hacker, big data architect and cloud security expert in cloud computing, Blockchain technology, and big data analytic solutions having worked with multiple intelligence agencies and who the NY Times described “as always the smartest person in the room” in a glowing article, concluded “with high confidence that the election data IN ALL BATTLEGROUND STATES were altered resulting in hundreds of thousands of Trump votes transferred to Joe Biden.”
Raw data analytics exclusively obtained by The American Report show that during the 2020 presidential election internet protocol (IP) addresses in China (Chinese telecom enterprise Huawei Cloud and Huawei’s headquarters, Chinese internet provider ChinaNet, Alibaba Cloud, China’s Shanghai UCloud Information Technology Company Limited, Aliyun Computing Co., ChinaNet, as well as Chinese state-owned telecommunications operator ChinaUnicom), Russia (Russian software and cybersecurity firm Kasperky Lab with Russia FSB as CEO), Hong Kong (Huawei Hong Kong Cloud), Germany (University of Stuttgart), Canada (Amazon Data Services in Toronto), and the Czech Republic (Seznam, a search engine) hacked into IP addresses in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Nevada, Michigan and Georgia.
Hammer and Scorecard.
Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney warned before the election on Operation Freedom with Dave Janda that the Dems and the CIA put in place a mechanism which can alter the voting results of electronic voting machines in key swing states (some caught live) that will determine the outcome of the election. Also prior to the election, voter machine expert, Russ Ramsland, who served in the Reagan administration and has worked for both NASA and MIT and now co-owner of Allied Security Operations Group (ASOG), was in an interview where he addressed the many unreal weaknesses in the voting machines used in the 2020 US election.
BELOW: Sidney Powell and Tom Fitton discuss the potential for nationwide voter irregularities & whether state legislatures and courts will uphold the rule of law. She mentions the use of the software programs HAMR and Scorecard to alter 3% of the vote total that was changed in the pre-election ballots collected digitally, thus resulting in a massive fraudulent swing in Biden’s favor. She explains that in addition, they ran an algorithm to calculate the number of votes they might need to come up with in specific areas in order for Biden to win and thus fraud was committed in numerous ways to achieve this.
HAMMER and various cyber weapons were previously used by the USA against other countries, now that ‘we the people’ finally elected a President that works and fights for them, the weapons are being deployed against us. Obama is, at least, a part of the head of the snake.
Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp claimed in 2019 the so-called “Hammer” (Hamr) surveillance system invented by Dennis Montgomery is a hoax. Shipp says new data shows the Hammer (HAMR) hoax is an intensifying psyop. Shipp says, “It’s fake. It’s a false story, and yet, it is being pushed all the way to the top (of Google search) that is now claiming it was part of the surveillance on President Trump, and that is pretty serious because it is getting up to that level. . . . We’ve proven that Dennis Montgomery is a documented fraud and con man . . . and after all of that, this story keeps morphing and they keep pushing it up. Somehow it has gotten to number two in a Google search.”
The Gateway Pundit, in February 2021, would add credibility to Shipp’s exposition on Hammer and Scorecard and the conman behind it, Dennis Montgomery in THIS article. In TGP’s investigation into the massive 2020 election fraud, they discovered with the help of contributors Larry Johnson and Yaacov Apelbaum, that Montgomery had inserted false information about the outdated programs in order to create a false narrative to sidetrack and defraud the effort to uncover the truth about the stolen 2020 election.
On Friday the 13th of November, Rep. Louie Gohmert told Chris Salcedo on Newsmax that people on the ground in Germany report that Scytl, a Barcelona-based company that provides electronic voting systems worldwide vulnerable to electronic manipulation, was raided by a large US ARMY force and their servers were seized in Frankfurt. Scytl has (or had) Soros and Democrat party connections. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Capital has invested $40 million in Scytl and Bill Gates also owns stock in the company.
In an interview with WVW-TV (Brannon Howse), retired Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney described the raid in which the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion located on Fort Huachuca, AZ and nicknamed the ‘Kraken,’ successfully seized Dominion Voting System servers held in a CIA “server farm” facility in Frankfurt, Germany. McInerney clarified that Powell had been using data provided by the 305th, and others, as fuel for legal battles, including her Georgia lawsuit, which alleges that the Chinese, Russians, and Iranians used Dominion to interfere in the 2020 U.S. Presidential election. He says that “we have not seen any footprints of the DOJ, of the FBI, nor the CIA on the friendly side. It’s been on the ‘Deep State’ side.”
A declaration from an active-duty military analyst was made public about a month after the 2020 election. The young analyst said that within five days of the election he/she was able to connect dominonvotingsystems.com, which is Dominion’s proprietary URL, to Belgrade, Iran, China — and Indivisible.org, a radical far left group linked to Barack Obama and that endorsed Joe Biden.12 Why in the world, other than to cheat, would these foreign enemies and a domestic partisan group have access to hundreds of voting machines? Certainly none were interested in helping Trump.
Retired Lt. General McInerney explains how various elements of the U.S. government, such as the “Deep State”, the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary, are involved in “this coup d’etat.” “This is treason. Benedict Arnold gave away West Point, or tried to, in the Revolutionary War. We haven’t seen treason to this magnitude ever in our history” said McInerney, adding that “the American people must demand that the President stay in office until this is cleared up, because it’s treason. It’s a coup d’etat against the government of the United States and we cannot accept that.” (National File)
Sidney Powell said that they had identified 450,000 ballots that miraculously only have a vote for Joe Biden on them and no other candidate. According to The Buffalo Chronicle, the Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino, claims that the Pennsylvania political operatives ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden that he manufactured for $10 each.
Also, a video was released on 11/27 in Mandarin Chinese of a phone call request for fake ballots customized by Chinese factory in Kwangtung, China.
President Trump gave a late night speech on election night describing where things were before we all woke up to a completely different story. When voting stopped in 6 battleground states (each with Democratic governors (except for Georgia’s who is just corrupt) Trump was comfortably ahead in 5 of the 6 before the “pauses.”
In Pennsylvania Trump was ahead by nearly 700,000 votes. Biden currently has 81,000 vote lead.
In Michigan Trump was ahead by over 300,000 votes. Biden currently has a 150,000 vote lead.
In Wisconsin Trump was ahead by 120,000 votes. Biden currently leads by 20,000 votes.
In Georgia Trump was ahead by 120,000 votes. Currently Biden leads President Trump by around 12,000 votes.
In North Carolina Trump was ahead by 77,000 votes (94-100% reporting). Trump has won NC.
In Nevada Biden had and maintained a small lead thanks to Dominion, double-voters and other illegal ballots. Biden currently leads by 30,000 votes.
Watch Mike Lindell’s excellent docu-movie on election fraud – Absolute Proof
TGP reported: In the brief submitted to the Supreme Court, Texas includes a declaration from Pacific Economics Group member and USC economics professor, Charles J. Cicchetti, Ph.D. Dr. Cicchetti is the former Deputy Director at the Energy and Environmental Policy Center at Harvard University’s John Kennedy School of Government and received his Ph.D. in economics from Rutgers University. According to Dr. Cicchetti, his calculations show the probability of Joe Biden winning the popular vote in the four states independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion. Dr. Cicchetti’s analysis calculates that for Joe Biden to win all four states collectively, the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power (1 in 1 1,000,000,000,000,0004).
President Trump told his supporters, “This is a fraud on the American public. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we won this election. This is a major fraud on the election. So we will be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all of the voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any votes at 4 in the morning. We will win this and as far as I am concerned we already won!”
That is exactly what happened! The fact that these battleground states stopped counting at the same time, “Demonstrates prior coordination by election officials in five battleground states,” according to General McInerney. Then they used HAMMER and Scorecard, plus Dominion, to move Joe Biden into the lead. It is a “mathematical impossibility” the way the votes came in. An algorithm was used.
Far-left Politifact would deny that they stopped counting, and they are “partially right.” That’s because they just wanted the poll watchers out. It was a head fake. They did keep counting in the dead of night behind closed doors and without poll watchers after trucks and cars full of ballots came in and by morning all of these leads had disappeared (details below in state-by-state fraud analysis). The Constitution requires that all valid ballots be received and counted on the first Tuesday in November. Any efforts to drag the election out after this date are likely not legitimate. President Trump addressed the nationwide fraud and strange suspension of ballot counting in a tweet the next morning:
Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!
Ronna McDaniel, the RNC Chairwoman, declared they had over 500 signed affidavits alledging over 11,000 incidents of voter fraud and Sidney Powell said at the time that evidence was coming in “like a firehose” at the time. The content below shows evidence from some of the whistleblowers, data analysts, anf others that provide irrefutable proof the election was a coordinated steal by democrats activists and politicians, deep state operatives, media and big tech resulting in millions of votes created, stolen and even erased altogether in order to narrow the gap President Trump had accumulated. A former FEC Commissioner, Hans von Spakovsky weighs in on how the election lawsuits might play out in the courts in this video. Much of what we know is because of courageous poll watchers, witnesses and whistleblowers – many whom have been beaten, threatened, and intimidated.
President Trump’s Team of attorneys claim they have evidence of a large conspiracy to steal the election that will eventually reveal the following:
7 million votes were likely stolen (electronically) from President Trump
3 million dead people voted
Millions of double votes (not mentioned by Trump team, but shown pundits)
The fraud was very widespread, very deliberate and very well funded.
Dominion Voting Systems, which was created to help dictators Hugo Chavez and Maduro win election, was used in all battleground states to delete and switch votes from Trump
We have data out of California in 2016 that Hillary Clinton did it to Bernie Sanders there.
We have a lot of evidence, it’s beyond impressive and absolutely terrifying.
We‘ve got evidence of people being paid. We got check stubs from people being paid.
The 12th Amendment states that if no candidate has an Electoral College majority, “the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President.” Nancy Pelosi thinks that means she will have power to choose the president in that case, however, as Breitbart’s Joel Pollak noted, the 12th Amendment makes clear that “in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote.” (emphasis added) So, even though the House has 435 representatives (the majority of whom are Democrats), there will only be 50 votes cast—one for each state’s delegation. And here’s the kicker … wait for it… The Republicans control more state delegations than the Democrats! But, of course, with the Democrats controlling the House, they could try to change the House rules to stall for time — all the while whipping up the violence and hysteria of their shock troops in the streets.
President Trump has noted the likelihood of the Supreme Court having to decide the election as reason to fill the Ginsburg vacancy before Election Day. “I think this will end up in the Supreme Court, and I think it’s very important that we have nine justices,” he said, adding that he thinks “having a four-four situation is not a good situation.”
Texas claims that the presidential elections as held (and as directed by government officials outside the legislature) in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan all flagrantly violated their own election laws by materially weakening or doing away with security measures. Further, according to the U.S. Constitution, the legislature (representing the citizens) of each state has absolute authority and responsibility for how presidential electors are chosen; the will of legislature being expressed through state law.
Significant violations of election law that were put into place to protect against election fraud is sufficient to invalidate the results of the elections, apart from whatever evidence is able to be gathered in a short time to show actual numbers of fraudulent ballots. Reason would indicate that there is a high number of fraudulent ballots that are impossible to identify, which is why the election laws pertaining to mail-in ballots were established to begin with.
There is no remedy to correct the Nov 3rd election because ballots that did not adhere to election law cannot be identified as separate from those that did. An accurate count of legal ballots that were cast cannot be made. Therefore, as directed in the Constitution, it falls to the legislature of each state to choose electors as has been done in the past. Failing that, each state may determine not to submit any presidential electors.
The Texas lawsuit claims the odds of Biden overcoming Trump’s lead and winning any of the states after the point indicated was one in a quadrillion. And therefore, the odds of winning all four was one in a quadrillion to the fourth power. The lawsuit did not provide information on how that number was determined. This may seem an exaggerated to some. It is enough to state that the odds of winning any one of the states was highly unlikely and the odds of winning all four were extremely unlikely. For example, if the odds of winning any one of the states was numerically much less extreme but still highly unlikely, say something like one in twenty, then the odds of doing that in all four states would be 1 in 160,000. Twenty beans in a jar: 19 white and 1 black. Reach in without looking and be lucky enough to pull out the one black bean. Chances of doing that again is 1 in 400. Clearly indicative of cheating if someone claims to have done that four times in a row. As I said the statistical analysis behind the claim of odds of 1 in a 1,000,000,000,000 are not given so I cannot speak to that. But even if the odds were orders of magnitude better than that, they were still astronomically small. At any rate, the merits of the lawsuit do not depend on any certain level of odds of Biden overcoming a lead that had been established by 3:00 A.M. the day after election.

While on the surface, this may seem like a democrat coup to steal the election, it goes much deeper. China was the heart of the coup. China biologically engineered a coronavirus to attack the US and its economy via their controlled politicians in the U.S.; they were caught printing fraudulent mail-in ballots (shown just above this section); and China owns Dominion Voting Systems that the corrupt politicians and election officials made sure were in their states; hates Trump for being America First, not China First like other sold-out politicians; and has a vested interest in Joe Biden due to thier ChinaGate deal via Hunter Biden and information on his laptop shows that Hunter was very compromised (violent sexual rape of a young (perhaps 10-yrs old?) Chinese girl on one of his visits.
Di Dongsheng, a vice-dean at the School of International Relations at Renmin University in Beijing, made public statements before a large audience on November 28, 2020:
“We know that the Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why did China and the US used to be able to settle all kinds of issues between 1992 and 2016?” he asked. “I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. We have our old friends who are at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.”
“During the US-China trade war, Wall Street tried to help, and I know that my friends on the US side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much. But now we’re seeing Biden was elected, the traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street, so you see that, right?”
“Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped [Hunter] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals inside all these.”
According to US investigative sources working in Italy since 18 November 2020, it was the US Embassy in Rome who coordinated the data manipulation of votes cast for President Trump to Joe Biden, with the technical complicity of Leonardo SpA, a company that is 31% owned by the Italian Government and generates more than half of its multi-billion USD annual revenue from its US based subsidiary. Leonardo DRS whose chief executive officer, William Lynn III, was formerly the undersecretary of defense during the Clinton Administration.
The US Ambassador to Italy is Lewis Eisenberg, very critical of President Trump’s military disengagement in the world and who is very close to the neoZionist lounges connected to the Goldman circuit. Three senior officials from the US intelligence community, landed at Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino several days prior to the November 3rd 2020 election in the US. According to a former CIA agent, the three intelligence operatives were housed at the U.S. Embassy in Via Veneto to coordinate hacking operations during election count suspension from November 3-4.
Switzerland has also come under heavy accusation of complicity in the alleged cyber coup, as claimed by Neal Sutz, a Swiss-American blogger, who denounced Switzerland’s active role in US presidential fraud. It all starts with Scytl, denounced Neal Sutz, a software purchased by the Swiss national postal service, which is directly implemented in Dominion Voting Machines at the center of the US election scandal, directly linked to the tycoon George Soros. According to Sutz, Switzerland never informed the Trump Administration of the serious flaws in the Scylt software, well known to the Swiss Government, and added that it had evidence of the plot that President Trump’s lawyers would acquire.
According to local sources with direct knowledge of these events reporting to Nations in Action, the US nonprofit for election integrity and public governance transparency, the manipulated data was transmitted from Frankfurt to Rome via the US Embassy in Via Veneto, according Rome the central role in the alleged international election plot to overturn the ballots cast by American citizens for the next President of the United States thereby creating a constitutional crisis.
At that point while the fraud was already widely initiated, the Leonardo SpA IT hackers realized that “Trump stood above Biden for a very large and unexpected number of votes” so much so that manipulation was in vain and not enough to make him lose.U.S. President-Elect Sicilian born Igzanio Moncada, CEO of FATA SpA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leonardo SpA, is believed to be a bridge between some secret services and the Italian Beijing Business Association, the Italian Iran Business Association and the Italian Qatar Business Association. It has been stated that Moncada may be a key figure in the eight month planning of the election hacking in Italy.
Senior US Embassy personnel in Italy reportedly gave the order to act, coordinating the hacking and developing “new algorithms”, states a key witness of the fraud, to secure a win for the democrat candidate Joe Biden.

Newly obtained emails from a Hunter Biden business partner lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. These never-before-revealed emails outline how a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials managed to secure a private, off-the-books meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
In a 2011 email, Hunter Biden’s business associates also discussed developing relations with what one called “China Inc.” as part of a “new push on soft diplomacy for the Chinese.” These emails are completely unconnected to the Hunter Biden emails being released by the New York Post.
These and more explosive never-before-revealed emails were provided to Schweizer by Bevan Cooney, a one-time Hunter Biden and Devon Archer business associate. Cooney is currently in prison serving a sentence for his involvement in a 2016 bond fraud investment scheme.
In 2019, Cooney reached out to Schweizer after becoming familiar with the revelations in his 2018 book Secret Empires. Cooney explained that he believes he was the “fall guy” for the fraud scheme and that Archer and Hunter Biden had avoided responsibility.
Archer, who was also convicted in the case, saw a federal judge vacate his conviction. But an appellate court overturned the lower court judge’s ruling, reinstating Archer’s conviction in the case. Archer, Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner, awaits sentencing.
Cooney, their associate who is currently serving a prison sentence on his conviction in the matter, later reestablished contact with Schweizer through investigative journalist Matthew Tyrmand. From prison, Cooney provided Schweizer with written authorization, his email account name, and password to his Gmail account to retrieve these emails. He authorized, in writing, the publication of these emails— notable because it is the first time a close associate has publicly confirmed Hunter’s trading on his father’s influence.
The emails offer a unique window into just how the Biden universe conducted business during the Obama-Biden Administration. These associates sought to trade on Hunter Biden’s relationship with, and access to, his father and the Obama-Biden White House in order to generate business.
For instance, on November 5, 2011, one of Archer’s business contacts forwarded him an email teasing an opportunity to gain “potentially outstanding new clients” by helping to arrange White House meetings for a group of Chinese executives and government officials. The group was the China Entrepreneur Club (CEC) and the delegation included Chinese billionaires, Chinese Communist Party loyalists, and at least one “respected diplomat” from Beijing. Despite its benign name, CEC has been called “a second foreign ministry” for the People’s Republic of China—a communist government that closely controls most businesses in its country. CEC was established in 2006 by a group of businessmen and Chinese government diplomats.
On Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Breitbart News senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer teased more evidence of a relationship between Hunter Biden and Devon Archer with Russian oligarch Elena Baturina.
According to Schweizer, the relationship dealt with banking and financial services for Baturina, given her money “was seen as dirty.”
Hunter Biden’s business associates spoke candidly in emails about Hunter Biden’s role in the business, particularly as it related to foreign ventures, apparently viewing the Biden name as a form of “currency,” and bragging that they had a “direct…pipeline” to the Obama-Biden Administration.
In another email, Hunter Biden’s associates touted Hunter’s access to the White House and contrasted his willingness to “take on risk” with that of Chris Heinz—then-Secretary of State John Kerry’s stepson and a close friend of Biden and Archer—who was uncomfortable with some of their potential partnerships.
In October 2013, Hunter Biden’s associates (including Devon Archer) discussed which one of their corporate vehicles would be appropriate for a new deal they were working on. Archer noted their need to use a “Rosemont Seneca SPV” (also known as a special purpose vehicle) because Rosemont Capital was too close to the Heinz family and because using an SPV could “bring Hunter into the mix.” Archer explained his desire “to leverage Hunter more” in a way that didn’t involve Heinz, who Archer called “much more risk averse.”

The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) its annual Peace Prize for 2020 on Friday, overlooking a history of corruption, mismanagement, and sexual assault among its ranks.
In its statement announcing the decision, the Committee expressed mounting concern about lack of access to food globally, particularly in light of repressive government lockdowns to prevent the spread of the Chinese coronavirus. The WFP, it said, won the award “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”
According to the Nobel Committee, the WFP was responsible for aiding “100 million people in 88 countries” throughout 2019. It asserted that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic “has contributed to a strong upsurge in the number of victims of hunger in the world” and applauded the WFP’s “impressive ability to intensify its efforts” given the current situation.
“The world is in danger of experiencing a hunger crisis of inconceivable proportions if the World Food Programme and other food assistance organisations do not receive the financial support they have requested,” the committee insisted.
David Beasley, the executive director of the U.N. agency, described the award as a “humbling, moving recognition of the world of the WFP staff who lay their lives on the line every day to bring food and assistance for close to 100 million hungry children, women and men across the world.”
“Every one of the 690 million hungry people in the world today has the right to live peacefully and without hunger. Today, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has turned the global spotlight on them and on the devastating consequences of conflict,” Beasley said.
The international recognition for the world’s biggest aid organization bookends a decade otherwise marred by a variety of scandals, from concerns about corruption and theft of aid to struggles internally to contain sexual assault and rape, and at least one incident where WFP food aid poisoned and killed people.
