The GOP’s New Rule: White People Can Shoot, But Black People Can’t Vote

  The GOP’s New Rule: White People Can Shoot, But Black People Can’t Vote There have been seven gun massacres in seven days, but congressional Republicans are staying the course of claiming that passing any kind of gun-control legislation “would do nothing to stop these murders.” It’s a message that they’ve paired, for good measure, with the road-tested racist tactic of stirring up white delusions of Black criminality among their base. The message is, essentially, guns don’t kill people, Black people do — so be sure to lock and load.

Arizona state representative Mark Finchem (district 11) on Monday issued a call to withhold the state ’s Electoral College votes for Joe Biden because “ he believes there is enough significant evidence of fraud to invalidate the state ’s votes .” President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign senior legal advisor Jenna Ellis appeared Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai presented very powerful data to Arizona lawmakers that completely obliterated the Biden victory narrative. In the middle of the hearing on Monday, Arizona ’s crooked Secretary of State certified the false election results.

The fact that we have to explicitly state that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc; including personal attacks, and threats of violence are all uncivil terrifies the mod team. Anything disparaging something about a person that they have little or no control over , is not tolerated under any circumstance. Not six billion or six million or even 60 thousand, but a measly 6 thousand? This really shows what kind of contempt Trump has for other people. He sees them all as his slaves. He probably never even paid the 6 grand.

To qualify for the ballot, Arizona requires individuals to get signatures from between 1 to 3 percent of all qualified voters. The percentages represent anywhere from over 43,000 to nearly 129,000 voters in the state.

Finchem's filing comes 25 days after a group named Rural Arizonans for Accountability launched a recall effort against him. The group takes issue with his repeated and baseless claims that widespread voter fraud "stole" the presidential election from Trump.

After the election was called for Democratic President Joe Biden, Finchem reportedly led the call for the so-called #StopTheSteal movement in Arizona. His now-deleted Twitter account used the #StopTheSteal hashtag 62 times from November 19 to January 6, the Arizona Mirror reported.

Dem Hearings Bend Over Backwards to Ignore GOP Complicity in Capitol Riot

  Dem Hearings Bend Over Backwards to Ignore GOP Complicity in Capitol Riot If a set of high-profile Senate and House hearings into the Jan. 6 insurrection and related domestic terrorism are any indication, Congress is determined to look away from the elected Republican politicians who provoked hundreds to storm the Capitol and leave five people dead. The Senate hearings revealed an abiding interest in pinpointing intelligence and security failures ahead of and during the insurrection. A House subcommittee hearing on Wednesday took a look at domestic terrorism at the state and local level, from prosecutors’ perspectives. A different House hearing on Thursday excoriated the social media giants for their role as disinformation vectors.

Arizona State Rep . Mark Finchem described Twitter as CCP propaganda after they suspended him for encouraging residents to call the Maricopa County Board.

"#StopTheSteal has been instrumental in fighting the election fraud we've discovered!" he wrote in a December 5 tweet. His tweets also tagged right-wing Internet personalities Michael Coudrey and Ali Alexander, both of whom spread similar claims of election fraud.

Text messages published by the Phoenix New Times showed that Finchem had communicated with Alexander, one of the organizers of the January 6 Stop the Steal rally in the Capitol. In one of the texts, Finchem mentioned working on "amicus brief" to be signed by Arizona legislators in support of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's Supreme Court case. Paxton's case sought to overturn the election results in four blue battleground states, but the Supreme Court declined to hear it.

In a January 6 tweet, Finchem posted a picture of the insurrectionists outside of the U.S. Capitol. In his caption, he wrote, "What happens when the People feel they have been ignored, and Congress refuses to acknowledge rampant fraud."

Arizona Representative Mark Finchem exclusively revealed how the state can take back its legislative power to assign Electoral College votes without the need of a special session. Arizona , as one of the many states that is being contested due to severe electoral irregularities and voter fraud , is currently seeing a push to decertify their 11 Electoral College votes for Joe Biden. However, as Governor Doug Ducey has not called the Arizona Legislature back early, they cannot currently vote on the matter – the new session is scheduled to start on January 11th.

Former President Donald Trump's unsuccessful reelection campaign reported it paid over ,000 to a business belonging to an Arizona legislator who sought to have the Legislature overturn Joe Biden's win in the state .

Mark Finchem for an expense labeled as “recount: legal consulting," the Arizona Republic reported Saturday. Finchem , a Tucson-area Republican who is not a lawyer, told the newspaper the payment was reimbursement for “crowd

Finchem has since claimed that Antifa, left-wing anti-fascist protesters, were responsible for the violence and destruction that took place during the Capitol riots. The FBI has said there's no evidence to back up such claims.

In a February 27 interview with The Epoch Times, a pro-Trump far-right newspaper that also spread election conspiracy theories, Finchem alleged that supervisors within Arizona's elections board might have deliberately destroyed any evidence of election fraud. He has called the state election audits a "sham" and referred to the locations where they took place as a "crime scene," the Mirror reported.

"Representative Finchem's actions have shown to undermine some of the most sacred institutions of our democracy," Pablo Correa, co-executive director of the recall group said, according to the Mirror.

Correra's group has until July 2 to collect 25,000 valid signatures to trigger a recall election. The group claims to have 50 canvassers, multiple field directors and legal counsel supporting its effort.

Finchem is also a member of the Oath Keepers, a national, right-wing, anti-government militia.
