Election Workers Call Police on Volunteers, Using COVID as the Excuse, at Michigan State House District Recount

Published

on

The pattern of Democrats using thuggish behavior to harass and intimidate whistleblowers continued during the recount for Michigan’s 71st District House seat.

State representative candidate Gina Johnsen called for the recount because she believes it is necessary for improving the flawed electoral process. However, electoral officials in Eaton County apparently do not support transparency and made it difficult for poll watchers and challengers to exercise their rights and supervise the process.

Johnsen told Big League Politics that she gained four votes and her opponent lost one vote during the two-day hand recount that her campaign requested and paid for. She is pleased that the process exposed corruption as poll workers and election officials yet again fabricated nonexistent COVID protocol to disenfranchise whistleblowers.

“I pushed the point that there’s no reason why I couldn’t have volunteers in there with medical exemptions. I had 15 face shields with me yesterday, and all the volunteers were all turned away. They made their own rules against the state directives,” Johnsen said of the poll workers in attendance.

“I just wanted one guy in there this morning, my data guy, who couldn’t wear a mask. He could wear a face shield, but they wouldn’t let him in. They made up extra rules beyond what was mandated by the Governor, the Secretary of State, MDHHS, to stop volunteers from viewing the process,” she added.

Police were eventually called when Johnsen refused to acquiesce to these violations of her volunteers’ basic rights. They said they would have to issue a citation for not wearing a mask as well as trespassing. Johnsen explained that she and volunteers were abiding by state law. Johnsen noted that the officers were very polite after hearing her explanation. After the data guy left, the police dropped the citations, and there were no further problems.

Johnsen and other volunteers interviewed by Big League Politics reported experiencing a great deal of hostility from Democrats throughout the process. Republican volunteers said they were left out in the cold on the first day of the recount before chairs were brought into the facility on day two. They also discovered that the trailer delivering the ballots was not locked. They were told by electoral officials that the trailer was locked but it was not. Anyone could have accessed the ballots and tampered with them for at least three hours.

State representative-elect Stephen Carra of Three Rivers sued the state of Michigan before the election so that COVID-19 could not be used as an excuse to disenfranchise poll challengers. Although he was successful in changing the state directives, the state has seemingly ignored their own policies at every turn in order to keep their corrupt electoral process intact.

“We had to peer through shower curtains, wear these masks, and couldn’t hear anything. It was frustrating to say the least to get through all of these barriers that were created arbitrarily because of COVID-19,” Carra told Big League Politics.

He noted that plastic barriers were used to separate poll workers processing ballots from challengers. The opaqueness of the barriers made it very difficult for challengers and watchers to properly observe the process.

“Those plastic screens were an impediment for the ability to properly see the ballots. I couldn’t read Gina’s name, and there were times where they would move quickly and I couldn’t observe the process,” Carra noted.

He did not feel there was any systemic fraud taking place in Eaton County, although he did observe rules being broken throughout the process.

“They seemed like honest and well-intentioned errors from what I experienced, but it was difficult to see through the sheet. It was like looking into water,” Carra said.

“We need to be able to find these errors that really do happen frequently in the process,” Carra added, defending lawsuits and recounts as being necessary to police the electoral system.

Big League Politics will follow up with additional news regarding the recount and any potential legal fallout relating from whistleblowers’ rights being violated while ballots were being processed.

Grassroots Leaders Send Final Warning to GOP Establishment: Rejecting Trump Means Death of Republican Party

The Republican establishment can choose Trump or political suicide.

Published

As the Republican Party establishment contemplates rejecting President Trump after he leaves office, the conservative grassroots are issuing a final warning that this decision means political suicide.

Texas conservative activists Maria Espinoza and Tim Lyng, who each co-founded The Remembrance Project in 2009 to bring attention to victims of illegal immigrant crime, penned a letter about the state of the GOP. They provided a copy of the letter to Big League Politics.

“The massive election fraud perpetrated to unseat our president was nothing less than a coup d’etat.  Clearly, while Trump took the hit, this was an attack against all who dare challenge the establishment, and dare support an America First agenda that  threatens both Democrat and Republican Chinese Communist Party-owned politicians.  And there are many,” Espinoza and Lyng wrote in their scathing letter.

They called out former Bush chief of staff Karl Rove, former House speaker Paul Ryan, the Lincoln Project’s “notorious alleged homosexual predator” John Weaver, and other establishment Republicans for working to turn the dial back on Trump’s MAGA revolution in the Republican Party.  Espinoza and Lyng hope that a truly America First party to rises to displace the GOP.

“An America First Party, led by Trump, would be the political springboard to reignite true American passion for all who value their God-given freedoms, who realize they have been sold-out to the Communist Chinese; and who recognize that now’s the time to hold onto the greatest country in the world and placing all that is “America” first,” they wrote in the letter. 

“In the America First Party, there is no room for squishy establishment-types. Without exception, there will be no equal opportunity for traitors to the Constitution. They will be banned from entry, forever,” Espinoza and Lyng added.

The vision outlined by Espinoza and Lyng for a truly America First political party may come to fruition if the GOP establishment keeps attacking President Trump. They mentioned in their letter that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) recently spoke of the inevitability of a third party if GOP senators convict Trump. Espinoza and Lyng believe that the GOP’s destruction is inevitable at this point.

Big League Politics has reported about how rank-and-file Republican constituents stand firmly with Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other RINOs:

Recent polling indicates that the overwhelming majority of Republicans side with President Donald Trump over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in their struggle over the future of the GOP.

McConnell has used last week’s violence in the Capitol to agitate against Trump, even flirting with the idea of impeaching the president. Ten Congressional Republicans joined the Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time on Wednesday.

However, McConnell’s feud with Trump comes at the peril of his career prospects. Republicans side with Trump, believing that Trump is right in his complaints about corruption.

An Axios-Ipsos poll shows that a firm majority of Republicans believe Trump was just to oppose election fraud, that he bares no responsibility in what happened at the U.S. Capitol, and they hope he runs again for the presidency in 2024.

Additionally, the results of the poll show a divide that has formed within the GOP. 56 percent of respondents consider themselves “traditional Republicans” while 36 percent of respondents consider themselves “Trump Republicans.” There is likely considerable overlap between the two groups as well, which should scare the likes of McConnell and his special interest masters.

The findings show that the “Trump Republicans” are on board with their president like never before and will be the most formidable anti-establishment constituency in GOP history.

If the GOP establishment does not retreat now and recognize that President Trump is the banner Republican moving forward, the party may die a well-deserved death. If Espinoza and Lyng are correct in their analysis, this could be the best news for the grassroots moving forward.
