1 – Trump campaign to file Wisconsin lawsuit, claiming ‘abuse’ of absentee voting affected 220K ballots
Fox News: The Trump campaign is filing a lawsuit to the Wisconsin Supreme Court Tuesday — alleging abuse around the process of absentee voting in the state, which they say affected approximately 220,000 ballots.
The lawsuit is expected to be filed Tuesday morning and comes after Wisconsin completed its partial recount — which maintained that Joe Biden won the presidential race in the state — and after Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers formally certified Biden’s victory Monday night.
The Trump campaign’s Wisconsin legal team, led by former Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge Jim Troupis, told Fox News that while the recount in the state did not flip in President Trump’s favor, it gave the campaign the “unique ability” to examine ballots.
“Exposing exactly how the election processes were abused in Wisconsin holds enormous value for this election beyond a victory for President Trump, but the fact is, our state’s electoral votes likely won’t change the overall outcome,” Troupis told Fox News. “Regardless, we’re demonstrating that the results of this election unequivocally ought to be questioned.”
DML: Expose ALL the fraud, or future elections are all doomed!
2 – Schumer-Aligned Dark Money Outfit Funnels Record $40 Million to Advocacy Groups
Free Beacon: A dark money organization aligned with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) funneled a record $40 million to liberal advocacy groups for voter engagement efforts, new filings show.
Majority Forward, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that is affiliated with Schumer’s Senate Majority PAC, sent the grants to more than a dozen left-wing groups, several of which are active in Georgia’s pivotal runoff elections. The new tax forms show that Majority Forward experienced a financial windfall heading into the 2020 elections. The group raised $76 million from anonymous donors between June 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019. It then flooded 16 liberal advocacy groups with funds for voter registration efforts. The largest grants include $14.8 million to America Votes, $10.1 million to the Black Progressive Action Coalition, and $3.5 million to the League of Conservation Voters.
Many of the groups funded by Majority Forward will be key players in the Georgia runoffs, which will determine control of the Senate. The Black PAC, a super PAC affiliated with the Black Progressive Action Coalition, has already dropped six figures into canvassing efforts for Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
Scott Walter, president of the Capital Research Center, said nonprofits like Majority Forward are as important as explicitly partisan outfits like campaigns and party committees. “[M]ost people don’t realize the politicized (c)(3) river of money is several multiples larger than the ‘hard’ political money river and the (c)(4) independent expenditures river combined,” Walter said.
DML: Shady Schumer!
3 – Dominion CEO Dismisses Vote Switching, Foreign Influence Allegations
The Epoch Times: The CEO of Dominion Voting Systems, responding to allegations from President Donald Trump’s legal team and others, said that claims that the company rigged the election to switch votes from Trump to Joe Biden are not true.
Writing for the Wall Street Journal, CEO John Poulos again asserted that the company is American. The firm says it has headquarters in Denver, Colorado, and Toronto, Canada.
“Dominion is an American company, now headquartered in Denver. Dominion is not and has never been a front for communists,” he wrote. “It has no ties to Hugo Chavez, the late dictator of Venezuela. It has never been involved in Venezuelan elections. None of Dominion’s systems use the Smartmatic software that has come under attack, as any state certification lab could verify.”
“There is no secret “vote flipping” algorithm,” Poulos insisted, claiming the company has been the target of a reckless and defamatory allegations.
However, Phil Waldron, a cybersecurity expert and retired Army colonel, told Republican lawmakers at a public hearing in Pennsylvania last week that the voting machines were built to be manipulated.
At an Arizona hearing on Monday, Waldron said his team has read the Dominion user manual, while tells operators how to connect it to the internet. Witnesses have confirmed that the machines were connected to the internet on election day.
BREAKING: #ArizonaHearing: “Are you willing to say under oath, that you’ve seen the connection to the internet, that you’ve seen it gone offshore to Frankfurt, Germany?”

4 – ISIS Task Force director resigns from Pentagon post in continued post-election purge
The Hill: The Defeat-ISIS Task Force director resigned from his position at the Pentagon on Monday amid the continued post-election purge at the Department of Defense.
Task Force Director Christopher Maier’s resignation was accepted by acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, the Department of Defense said in a statement obtained by The Hill.
Maier is the most recent defense official to be fired or resign in the days after the election after the White House has cleared the Pentagon of several leaders including former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.
Maier had led the task force focused on examining policy and strategy creation for combating ISIS since it was formed in March 2017.

5 – Obama’s Inspector General: Joe Biden’s DHS Pick Improperly Secured EB-5 Visas for Wealthy Foreign Investors
Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden’s pick to head the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency, Alejandro Mayorkas, improperly helped secure visas for wealthy foreign investors when he served as deputy secretary at the agency under former President Barack Obama, according to the DHS Inspector General (IG).
In 2015, Obama’s DHS IG John Roth concluded in an investigation that Mayorkas had in fact acted improperly when he intervened seemingly on behalf of wealthy foreign investors trying to secure EB-5 visas in three separate construction projects.
The EB-5 visa program allows wealthy foreign nationals to claim to invest at least $900,000 in United States development projects in order to receive green cards for themselves and their family with eventual pathways to American citizenship.
The foreign EB-5 investor’s only requirement is to claim to have created ten U.S. jobs and revitalize “distressed” areas. Those areas, though, are often in wealthy zip codes to build luxury shopping centers and condos for the wealthiest of Americans. The program effectively sells American citizenship to the highest foreign bidders.
As Breitbart News has reported, 10,000 foreign nationals and their families are allowed to enter the U.S. every year on the EB-5 visa. The overwhelming majority of EB-5 visas are rewarded to China’s elite — driving a migration of rich Chinese to cities across the country.
DML: This will be just like the fox guarding the henhouse.
6 – Obama jokes about serving a third term in the Oval Office
Barack Obama says he misses the ‘fascinating’ work of the presidency – joking in an interview with Stephen Colbert that he’d have liked to have a ‘stand-in’ so he could carry out a third term.
In an interview to promote his new memoir, Obama said that ‘puzzling out’ the biggest political issues was ‘professionally really satisfying’ – while adding that he did not miss ‘having to wear a tie every day’.
‘If I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a frontman or frontwoman, and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, then I could sort of deliver the lines but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, then I’d be fine with that because I found the work fascinating,’ Obama said.
DML: Did Obama just reveal what’s really going on here?
7 – CNN mocked for report tying COVID origins to China after ‘parroting CCP talking points’ for 10 months
Fox News: A new report from CNN that ties the origins of the coronavirus pandemic to China appears to have come too late, or as some critics have said, “10 months” late.
CNN broke news on Monday afternoon of a “trove” of leaked documents from inside China that showed that it had published “misleading” data on coronavirus cases and deaths in the province of Hubei, where Wuhan is located, back in February and additionally hid a huge “spike” in flu-like cases in December 2019.
“These documents, a rare, clear, and open window into what China knew all along, trying to appear in control while a local outbreak turned into a global pandemic,” CNN international security editor Nick Paton Walsh concluded in his on-air report.
While President Trump has long accused China of “allowing” the coronavirus that originated within its borders to be released to the rest of the world, much of the mainstream media has largely ignored the origins of the disease, with some even characterizing the president’s attacks as xenophobic.
