Question the Mules

By | Electoral College, LBB, Legal, News and Events | No Comments

Question the mules. That’s the only reasonable response to the evidence presented by Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, 2000 Mules. The documentary offers concerning evidence of election fraud in the 2020 election that should be investigated. Whatever your views on former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden, they are not the focus of the investigation.

 

It is uncontroverted that states bent and amended election rules when faced with the COVID-19 pandemic. Mail-in and absentee ballots were greatly expanded with little time for proper implementation. Hundreds of drop-off boxes were added to ensure everyone had access to them while maintaining social distancing, but many went unmonitored. That’s where D’Souza’s documentary raises some critical questions and gives us an urgent cautionary tale for future elections. We must do better.

 

How secure were these drop boxes? Do we have a way to monitor them? How do we stop bad actors from abusing the system? No one needs to be depositing multiple ballots at 2:00 a.m.

 

The film does not answer all the questions. For example, the organizations from which these mules were allegedly getting ballots are generically referenced but not mentioned by name. But the evidence presented of people depositing several ballots at a time using gloves and taking pictures so as to document that they had deposited them is seriously suspicious and should be quickly investigated.

 

The attorneys general in the states involved should follow up with an investigation. True the Vote (TTV), the organization that provided the information to D’Souza, has the names of the individuals and organizations involved, and they are willing to cooperate with law enforcement. So why wouldn’t every state want to follow up and either clear the record or catch and expose the perpetrators as a strong deterrent for future elections?

 

Conspiracies are not good for our democracy, and ignoring the legitimate evidence presented in the documentary will only fuel those. On the other hand, an investigation would serve to tamper speculations and give confidence to voters, whatever the outcome, by answering some basic questions about what happened and punishing any bad actors.

 

The crux of the investigation is the identification of 2,000 individuals who deposited multiple ballots while visiting an average of 20-30 drop boxes and stopping by left-leaning non-profit organizations in between those visits. These are identified as the mules. TTV used commercial cell phone tracking data to identify and track these individuals. The evidence becomes compelling when they are able to obtain footage of some individuals depositing multiple ballots at locations that kept surveillance on some drop boxes.

 

Not all locations were on camera, though, which has raised some questions. Though it is not unreasonable to think they were doing the same at other sites, you are left wishing there was more on tape. The fact that some locations that were supposed to be monitored somehow were not also raises concerns. Again, the evidence is compelling enough for law enforcement to go and ask the questions at the very least. If nothing wrong was done, they should be able to confirm it.

 

The documentary features one person who says they believe they were involved in paying “mules” for this work, which is not legal in any state. But she cannot corroborate it completely because she can only say she assumes she was handing out checks. She also says she had been approached about her own ballot. It is conceivable that others may come forward if an investigation is started.

 

Contact your state attorney general and express your desire to see a full investigation into the matter.

 

The documentary is certainly a must watch for anyone interested in the topic. But ultimately, my prayer is that you are left inspired, not frustrated, to become part of the solution and get involved in the election process in your state. Sunshine is the best policy when it comes to our election procedures.

CWALAC Holds the Line to Defend Election Integrity

By | Legislative Updates, National Sovereignty, News and Events | No Comments

In the latest attempt to institute a federal takeover of our elections, House Democrats recently hijacked an unrelated bipartisan National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) bill as a vehicle to expedite Senate consideration of so-called voting rights legislation. This was a futile “moon shot” towards Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-New York) goal of passing sweeping reforms by Martin Luther King Day. H.R. 5746, a Frankenstein creation combining elements of the hyper-partisan For the People Act (H.R./S. 1), John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 4), and Freedom to Vote Act (S. 2747), passed the House on January 13, 2022, in a party line vote.

All momentum was soon lost as Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona) and Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) reiterated their opposition to eliminating the 60-vote threshold of the filibuster—the only means for the Democrat Majority’s voting rights bill to advance without support from Republicans. Even a last-minute Capitol Hill visit from President Biden failed to generate enthusiasm. Leader Schumer soon sent members home for the weekend with the promise that H.R. 5746, renamed the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act, would be their first order of business come Tuesday. The bill will not pass without a change in the Senate filibuster rules, so both are on a path to certain defeat.

H.R 5746 forces states to implement online, automatic, and same-day voter registration measures, opening the door for fraud and expands the unchecked power of the U.S. Attorney General to object to legitimate voter integrity efforts among states. The bill also opens the door to publicly funded political campaigns and candidate campaign salaries, meaning Americans’ tax-dollars are at risk of funding career politicians and candidacies with whom they disagree. The list of poisonous policies continues.

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) is holding the line on election integrity. This week, we continued to underscore our strong objections to the latest version of a federal takeover of state voting laws and have declared our unequivocal opposition to abolishing the filibuster. Do not expect this futile mission to end anytime soon. CWALAC will continue to stand against the Democrat majority’s vain crusade to mandate unconstitutional changes to our election laws.

Texans Deserve Integrity in Our Elections

By | Texas | No Comments

Election integrity should be the number one legislative priority for the entire country. It is imperative that our state enacts the strongest guidelines and laws for ensuring that we execute honest and fair elections in the Lone Star State. That is why Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas supports recently filed HB 6, an election integrity bill that will combat election fraud.

Election fraud is real, and therefore needs careful and intentional legislation to ensure confidence and integrity with the process. The voting system should preserve the integrity of each ballot.

Below are some of CWA of Texas’ election integrity concerns:

  • Voter rolls must be current, void of deceased voters or those who have moved out of the area.
  • Citizenship must be verified before voting. Voter ID should be a non-negotiable requirement.
  • We need stricter rules on mail-in ballots. Mail-in ballots should be limited by those who are unable to go to the election site, not as a personal preference. Mail-in ballots need to be numbered and traceable, as regular ballots are traceable. Ballot harvesting should not be allowed and certainly not conducted by well-paid harvesters.
  • We must close primaries. A person should not be allowed to vote in either primary.
  • We need more transparency at the polls by ensuring that poll watchers in Texas are not obstructed from observing the counting of ballots.

Take Action:

  1. Contact the members of the House Calendars Committee and ask them to schedule HB 6 for debate on the House floor. The committee members are listed below my signature. If you are a constituent (within one of the house member’s district), be sure to let them know.
  2. Contact your state representative and ask him or her to support HB 6.  Use this link to find out who represents you in the state legislature.
  3. Forward this information to family and friends.

Please Pray:

  1. Pray that Texas maintains a level of integrity in our election procedures and processes and that citizens hold them accountable to do so.
  2. Pray that the results of our elections will produce public servants who respect the citizens and protect their dignity and freedoms.
  3. Pray for the leadership of our state, Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and Speaker Dade Phelan (R-District 21), that God’s wisdom and purpose is their ever-driving goal.

Elections have grave consequences: “When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when a wicked man rules, people groan.” – Proverbs 29:2 (NAS)

West Virginians: Take a Stand to Save America!

By | National Sovereignty, News and Events, Sexual Exploitation | No Comments

Join Concerned Women for America in West Virginia!

This Saturday, March 20, Concerned Women for America (CWA) encourages you to join forces with our fellow patriots in West Virginia to send a clear message to Sen. Joe Manchin!

Sen. Manchin needs to oppose the Corrupt Politicians Act (H.R. 1/S.1), which is a federal power grab over our elections that will shatter Americans’ confidence in election integrity. The bill passed the Democrat-controlled House on a near party-line vote and now moves to the Senate.

Sen. Manchin also needs to oppose the so-called “Equality Act” ( H.R. 5/S. 393). The “Equality Act” (H.R. 5) passed by the House overrules the truth about being created male and female and must be stopped. The bill now moves to the Senate.

Sen. Manchin has the opportunity to do the right thing and stand up for America against these egregious bills. Come to the Capitol in Charleston, West Virginia, to send Sen. Manchin a clear message that we oppose H.R. 1/S.1 and H.R. 5/S.393, and so should he.

There are bus pick-ups in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. Click here for bus pick-up locations and to RSVP for a seat on the bus.

Event Details:
Time: 1:00 p.m. EST
Location: West Virginia Capitol Building, Riverside Lawn by the Governor’s Mansion
Address: 1900 Kanawha Blvd E, Charleston, WV 25305

This event is hosted by the West Virginia Family Policy Council.
