GSA Approves Biden Transition Funds

GSA Administrator Emily Murphy sent a letter to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden informing him that she was authorizing the release of funds to him for a potential presidential transition. While Murphy, who is a President Trump appointee, was careful to say she was not declaring a winner in the presidential election which is being contested by Trump, she cited “recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results” for her decision Monday.

Murphy said she was not pressured or given direction by anyone in the administration. However she said she received thousands of messages via phone, mail and online threatening herself, her family, staff and pets.

A copy of the letter was posted by CNN (full text below):

GSA Letter of Approval of Funds for Biden

Dear Mr. Biden:

As the Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, I have the ability under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, as amended, to make certain post-election resources and services available to assist in the event of a presidential transition. See 3 U.S.C. § 102 note (the “Act”). I take this role seriously and, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, am transmitting this letter today to make those resources and services available to you.

I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived to do what is right. Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official—including those who work at the White House or GSA—with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. I did, however, receive threats online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely. Even in the face of thousands of threats, I always remained committed to upholding the law.

Contrary to media reports and insinuations, my decision was not made out of fear or favoritism. Instead, I strongly believe that the statute requires that the GSA Administrator ascertain, not impose, the apparent president-elect. Unfortunately, the statute provides no procedures or standards for this process, so I looked to precedent from prior elections involving legal challenges and incomplete counts. GSA does not dictate the outcome of legal disputes and recounts, nor does it determine whether such proceedings are reasonable or justified. These are issues that the Constitution, federal laws, and state laws leave to the election certification process and decisions by courts of competent jurisdiction. I do not think that an agency charged with improving federal procurement and property management should place itself above the constitutionally-based election process. I strongly urge Congress to consider amendments to the Act.

As you know, the GSA Administrator does not pick or certify the winner of a presidential election. Instead, the GSA Administrator’s role under the Act is extremely narrow: to make resources and services available in connection with a presidential transition. As stated, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request. The actual winner of the presidential election will be determined by the electoral process detailed in the Constitution. Section 7 of the Act and Public Law 116-159, dated October 1, 2020, which provides continuing appropriations until December 11, 2020, makes $6,300,000 available to you to carry out the provisions of Section 3 of the Act. In addition, $1,000,000 is authorized, pursuant to Public Law 116-159, to provide appointee orientation sessions and a transition directory. I remind you that Section 6 of the Act imposes reporting requirements on you as a condition for receiving services and funds from GSA.

If there is anything we can do to assist you, please contact Ms. Mary D. Gibert, the Federal Transition Coordinator.
Sincerely,

Emily W. Murphy
Administrator
U.S. General Services Administration

Trump Attorney L. Lin Wood: “Every Lie Will Be Revealed – They’re Going to be Shocked at Level of Pedophilia – Satanic Worship”

Attorney L. Lin Wood held an interview with “The Thrive Time” Show hosts Clay Clark and Dr. Robert Zoellner and boy did he NOT hold back!

Attorney Lin Wood:

So the Supreme Court is being aligned. They Department of Defense was recently realigned by the president. Take a look at how he put in place, a cyberterrorism and terrorism expert. As I said look at what he did in 2018 with the executive order to deal with foreign interference in our national elections. Look, I’d like to see in a perfect world, John Durham’s report come out and people go to jail. I’d like to see Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and a lot of people go to jail. I’d like to see what’s on Hunter Biden’s laptop. I’d like to see those people go to jail. I’d like to see what’s on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. I’d like to see a lot of people go to jail. And then when we get to the final phase of the election fraud I’d like to see people go to jail. The one thing I’ll say is there’ll be an intermingling. There will be people going to jail I believe who are involved in all of those or some of those same investigations. So there is potentially a great awakening. The truth has to come out. I believe it will. I do not think that you can hide the truth. I do say it and I believe it, every lie will be revealed. This country’s going to be shocked when the find the truth about who’s been occupying the Oval Office for some periods of years. They’re going to be shocked at the level of pedophilia. They are going to be shocked at what I believe is going to be a revelation in terms of people who are engaged in satanic worship.

John Kerry Talks ‘Great Reset’: ‘We’re at the Dawn of Extremely Exciting Time’

Global political elites like European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and former Secretary of State John Kerry view Democrat Joe Biden as a driver of World Economic Forum’s “The Great Reset” mission that seeks major transformation of the world’s economy.

In a panel discussion by the World Economic Forum, Kerry said Biden is ready to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement — which threatens to eliminate more than a million American jobs — and be a driver of the”Great Reset” whereby unelected global bureaucrats are looking to alter the world’s economy by abolishing money, private property, and democracy for the sake of a “New World Order,” according to James Delingpole.

“The notion of a reset is more important than ever before,” Kerry said. “I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”

Kerry said the U.S. rejoining the job-killing, industry-gutting Parish Climate Agreement is “not enough.”

“I know Joe Biden believes this. It’s not enough just to rejoin [the Paris Climate Agreement] for the United States. It’s not enough for us to do just the minimum of what [the agreement] requires,” Kerry said. He went on:

The Biden administration will focus on every sector of the American economy. There will be a 2035 goal to achieve net neutrality with respect to power and production … we’re ready to come back in and help to lead and raise the ambition in Glasgow to accelerate this incredible capacity for a transformation in the private sector.

Von der Leyen said the European Commission looks forward to Biden rejoining the U.S. to the Paris Climate Agreement, calling the former vice president “President-Elect” and a “friend in the White House.”

Report: ATF Working with Joe Biden to Go After AR-15 Pistol Braces

A report from the NRA-ILA suggests the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is already working with former Vice President Joe Biden to go after AR-15 pistol braces.

On October 7, 2020, Breitbart News reported that the ATF reclassified a small sliver of AR-15 pistols with stabilizer braces as Short Barrel Rifles (SBRs), thereby placing them under the purview of the National Firearms Act (NFA).

The pistol targeted by the ATF was made by Q, LLC, and is called the “Honey Badger.” However, the ATF made clear that two other Q, LLC pistols with stabilizer braces — the Sugar Weasel and the Mini Fix — may fall under NFA purview as well.

Three days later, on October 10, 2020, the Trump administration made clear they were looking into the ATF’s decision to reclassify some AR-15 pistols and place them under the NFA.

But Biden is claiming victory in the November 3 election and acting ATF director Regina Lombardi and associate deputy director Marvin Richardson allegedly used a November 10, 2020, conference call to reveal that Biden’s people had already reached out to them to find out their “top priorities.” The NRA-ILA  points to an Ammoland.com report claiming “Lombardi told those on the call that her priorities would be pistol braces and 80% lower receivers.”

The NRA-ILA does not say what type of polices/regulations could be issued regarding stabilizing braces but they do note there are more than 4 million such braces already in private ownership in America.

If pistols outfitted with such braces were fall under NFA purview, it could mean that owners of the firearms would be required to submit photographs and fingerprints, undergo an FBI background check, register the firearm with the ATF, and pay a $200 tax to the federal government. Other fees could be applicable as well.

Biden Declares Election Over and Himself President

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden delivered a message during a news briefing Monday from Wilmington, Delaware.

Biden declared that the country must unite and that the “election is over.”

The former vice president also urged Americans to wear masks amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

But behind Biden’s posturing about unity, public health and politics was another message.

A banner behind the 77-year-old read “Office of the President-Elect.”

In fact, no such office exists.

The issue is not that Biden isn’t the president-elect — although that remains to be seen, given the recounts and court challenges that must play out before we can be sure that Biden defeated President Donald Trump.

It’s that even if he were the president-elect, there is no office for newly elected presidents to hold while waiting for their inauguration.

“President-elect” is simply a term for someone who has been elected, not an actual position — unless Biden’s Delaware basement is serving as some sort of quasi-official Wilmington White House that is recognized only by shadowy deep-state figures, the media and Corn Pop.

The former vice president holds no power in government, which is a fact that will remain up until he is inaugurated — if indeed he is.

To be fair, Barack Obama and Donald Trump also had “Office of the President-Elect” signs on the podium in their post-election appearances in 2008 and 2016, respectively, but at least in those cases they were the clear winners.

With Biden, votes are still being counted and a court fight is looming.
