Former congressional candidate and conservative commentator Kathy Barnette has jumped into Pennsylvania‘s 2022 U.S. Senate election, hoping to become the first black female Republican senator.

In a campaign announcement video posted to her Twitter on Tuesday, she can be seen walking in the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg and talking about what that place means to her. In the video, Barnette—who, according to her website, served for 10 years in the Armed Forces Reserves—also took swipes at President Joe Biden and “cancel culture”.

While noting in the video the progress that have been made for Black Americans in this country, Barnette said, “But there are still deeply personal and demeaning hurdles we must overcome, because now the issue isn’t just for someone who looks like me, but it is for people who think like me as well.”

“People like me are being canceled, bullied, fired, threatened, and deplatformed,” she continued, adding: “We’re told that Black lives matter—except, of course, my Black life because I’m a Black conservative.”

“And by the way, Joe, just because I believe in competent leadership doesn’t mean ‘I ain’t Black!’,” she wrote on Twitter, referencing the president’s infamous comment from the 2020 campaign trail that if Black voters don’t vote for him, then they “ain’t Black”.

Barnette was previously the GOP’s 2020 nominee for Pennsylvania’s fourth congressional district, but lost.

Currently, there is only one Black GOP senator: South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.

Notably, Scott recently defended his comments that “woke supremacy” is worse than white supremacy and said “I am proud to be both a Black man and a Republican” when discussing those who have attacked him for being both.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
