Arizona Will Replace Voting Machines After Election Audit Concludes

Oh really…?

Published

In the deserts of the American southwest, an unprecedented political action rages this week.

Tied to Donald Trump’s continued insistence that the 2020 election was stolen from him, a cybersecurity firm is now leading an audit meant to discover any potential discrepancies in the vote counts from Maricopa County, Arizona – the state’s most populous county.

Local politicos have been growing agitated with the auditors as of late, with a number of officials vocally expressing their concerns about the process.

Now, the Secretary of State is suggesting that the audit may have even created a new cybersecurity issue that could cost Arizona quite a bit of money.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said Thursday that the voting machines Republicans turned over to private companies as part of their audit of the 2020 election are no longer safe for use in future elections.

In a letter sent to Maricopa County officials and shared with NBC News, Hobbs, a Democrat, cited security concerns about losing the chain of custody over the equipment when it was handed over to the auditors and urged the county to get new machines. If it does not, her office would consider decertifying the equipment involved in the audit, she wrote. That would remove the machines from service.

Hobbs’ letter was stark.

“I have grave concerns regarding the security and integrity of these machines, given that the chain of custody, a critical security tenet, has been compromised and election officials do not know what was done to the machines while under Cyber Ninjas’ control,” Hobbs wrote in the letter to the county’s mostly Republican Board of Supervisors, which oversees the county elections.

Donald Trump and some of his politically-active allies have suggested that similar audits take place in other states, including in Georgia where one Peach State politician has already begun working up a bill to make it happen.

Biden to Tackle Gun Violence with Summer Camps and Jobs

This is all just another plug for the American Rescue Plan.

Published

During the presidency of Donald Trump, many of his supporters were sure that the Commander in Chief was fighting a barely-secret war against a “deep state” of establishment politicians whose goal was to keep the status quo chugging along at all costs, enriching themselves in the process. And, given that Trump had to work in the shadows to accomplish this, many began using the term “4D chess” to describe his fight. Any time that The Don made a move that seemed a bit out of character, many believed that this was a subterranean attempt at stealing power from the deep state that only Trump could quite understand. Now, in a far more bizarre set of moves, it appears as thought the Biden administration is trying to play something like 7 or 8D chess when they are only truly qualified to handle tic-tac-toe. First, they insist that “climate change” is a “root cause” of illegal immigration, which is a dumbfounding declaration in and of its own right. Now they are aiming to tackle gun violence with summer camp. President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The president’s strategy will address five key areas: stemming the flow of firearms used to commit violence; providing law enforcement with more resources; investing in community violence interventions; expanding summer programs and employment opportunities, especially for young people; and helping formerly incarcerated people re-enter their communities. As part of Biden’s plan, the Treasury Department will issue new guidelines Wednesday making clear that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence as a result of the pandemic can use the $350 billion in state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan to…

ABOUT TIME: Kamala Harris Makes Much-Anticipated Travel Plans

It only took three months!

It has taken three months, but our Vice President is finally about to tackle the border crisis head on. Sure, Kamala Harris has visited Guatemala, but, ask anyone involved in that debacle and you’re unlikely to find a glowing review of her diplomacy there.  In fact, after Harris left, the President of that nation told the world that the whole immigration crisis is Joe Biden’s fault anyway. Now, after incessant criticism from the mainstream media, Harris will finally be heading to the border. Vice President Kamala Harris is set to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, the White House confirmed, amid mounting criticism from Republicans for not yet doing so, following her appointment by President Biden to handle the “root causes” of migration. Harris is set to visit El Paso, Texas, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Harris has come under heavy criticism from Republicans and some Democrats for the way she has handled the role since being appointed to it 91 days ago. While the White House has emphasized she is tasked with the “root causes” of the border crisis, Republicans have criticized her repeatedly for not having visited the border at all – with former Trump officials saying she needs to go to the border in order to be able to conduct the talks effectively. Harris has thus far opted to work on the “root causes” of illegal immigration, stating that she believes “climate change” to be a major factor; a proclamation that has enthused the radical leftists of the Democratic Party.
