RNC files new Georgia lawsuit, demands access for GOP poll watchers during Senate runoffs in January

The Republican National Committee filed a new lawsuit Tuesday in Georgia to ensure that election laws are “properly followed” during the state’s two January 5 runoff elections for the U.S. Senate, specifically demanding access for Republican poll watchers and more restrictions surrounding the use of ballot drop boxes, Fox News reports exclusively.

This comes after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified the state’s 2020 presidential election results for a third time on Monday after multiple recounts, confirming President-elect Joe Biden‘s narrow victory in the Peach State. President Donald Trump refuses to concede the election as his team and his supporters continue to launch dozens of lawsuits in multiple states challenging the election results.

The RNC lawsuit requests the enforcement of “two vital facets of the Georgia Election Code governing the rights of duly appointed poll watchers and statutory safeguards attending the use of ballot ‘drop boxes’ as a method of absentee voting.”

During the general election on November 3 and the ensuing recounts in Georgia, the RNC claimed that “the legal right of political party committees to appoint poll watchers to observe the process was abridged in numerous polling and tabulation locations” across the swing state. Republicans have made similar claims about poll watchers in other swing states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania.

“Upon information and belief, the same or substantially similar unlawful practices will resume in connection with the imminent January 5, 2021 runoff election,” the lawsuit alleges.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News, “While we continue to fight multiple cases of election irregularities from the general election, we also must fight to ensure they never happen again.”

“Election laws need to be properly followed so Americans can have confidence in the results,” she added.

Additionally, McDaniel told Fox News that the lawsuit “seeks to force Georgia election officials to simply follow the laws on their books as they pertain to poll watchers and drop boxes.” 

“We will never stop fighting to ensure free and fair elections in our country,” McDaniel added. 

The filing noted that the state’s election officials are “statutorily required to ensure that county and municipal superintendents and registrars are properly and lawfully instructed on the rights of poll watchers and do not implement policies or procedures that impair their ability to fully and meaningfully observe the election process.”

Furthermore, the lawsuit demands that the state clarify rules set by the Georgia State Election Board to make sure that drop boxes are properly secured and monitored, arguing that laws relating to those drop boxes were not properly followed during the general election, Brooke Singman of Fox News writes.

The RNC also claimed that the State Election Board back in April promoted the “Drop Box Rule,” which authorizes the county registrars to “establish one or more drop box locations as a means for absentee by mail electors to deliver their ballots to the county registrars,” according to Singman’s Fox News report.

“The Drop Box Rule further mandates continuous video recording surveillance of every drop box location,” the lawsuit said, with the RNC also arguing that they are “entitled to access or view video surveillance of drop box locations in real time, or as near real time as practicable.”

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’



Screen Shot 2019 01 04 at 7.05.24 PM

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
