Supposed Stop the Steal Organizer Ali Akbar Is A Convicted Fraudster, Accused of Plotting Voter Fraud as McCain Operative in 2008

Akbar has a questionable record.

Published

Ali Abdul Razaq Akbar, a man who has gained a following as an organizer of the so-called #StopTheSteal movement, has a checkered personal history that includes arrests for burglary, theft and credit card fraud.

Akbar, who now goes by the name Ali Alexander, was also remarkably accused of plotting a voter fraud operation as a campaign employee of John McCain in 2008. Chuck Gelshider, a 2008 Ron Paul organizer, accused Akbar of discussing potential voter fraud methods in the context of rigging or manipulating an election.

Alexander has recently taken to organizing seemingly innocuous #StopTheSteal rallies, rallying Trump supporters who stand against media attempts to announce Joe Biden as the President of the United States before outstanding litigation is adjudicated and the electoral college votes.

Akbar has claimed that he isn’t being paid in any capacity for his organization of national #StopTheSteal movements, but he’s received more than $2000 in Bitcoin in recent weeks. The stopthesteal.us domain aggregates demonstrations planned by conservatives across the country, but Akbar seems to be using the domain to personally fundraise.

A link on the #StopTheSteal website leads directly to the donation page on Akbar’s personal website. It’s unclear if Alexander is legally eligible to solicit donations for StopTheSteal.

A progressive website previously reported that Akbar/Alexander was convicted on two respective counts of credit card fraud and theft. Breitbart Unmasked cites arrest records which allege Akbar stole “Five MP3 Players, Twenty CD’s, Three Camcorders, Two DVD Players, One Back Massager One Clock, Four Shirts, Two Belts and a Piece of Luggage, which had the value of over 1500.00 USD but less than 20,000.00 USD.”

Conservatives and Trump supporters who intend for demonstrate for electoral integrity should be very careful about transferring any funds to Akbar.

Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?

America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad

Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.

Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards  questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy. 

In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”

Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.

That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.

Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:

Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”

Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans. 

After looking at the list of people who have been tapped to join the Biden administration, Hawley tweeted, “What a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts – and #BigTech sellouts.”

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change. 

Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
