Primary recounts certified; Gilbert not dropping claims of fraud

Mail-in Ballot Recount

An election worker feeds ballots into a machine during a recount of mail-in ballots at the Clark County Election Department, Thursday, June 30, 2022, in North Las Vegas, Nev.

Counties recertified their election results last week after a recount sought by Reno Attorney Joey Gilbert, who lost to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo in the GOP primary election by about 26,000 votes, was complete.

Little changed in the vote totals after county election officials completed their recounts.

On Thursday, the Clark County Commission, in a 5-0 vote, certified the recount results of the Republican primary here. Clark County is the state’s most populous county.

Before the recount, Gilbert had received 29,475 votes and Lombardo had 57,816. After the recount, Gilbert received seven fewer votes, and Lombardo received eight fewer votes, Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said.

There were fewer votes because of the adjudication process, where a board reviews ballots that were identified as having a double vote. In those cases, the voter did not follow state statute in properly crossing out a name, Gloria said.

In Washoe County, No. 2 in population, county commissioners on Thursday approved 3-1 the recount results, with Commissioner Jeanne Herman voting no. The recount showed an additional two votes for Gilbert and no change in votes for Lombardo, with Lombardo still winning the county by more than 300 votes.

Jamie Rodriguez, government affairs manager for Washoe County, said during the meeting that the election department believed the two additional votes were approved in the adjudication process.

The estimated cost for the recount was about $191,000.

Gilbert did not expect to win the recount; rather he had to ask for it to officially contest the election results in court. He maintains he won, saying in a July 5 Facebook video that in Clark County he won 30,000 more votes than were reported. Gilbert argues that Democrats rigged the election in favor of Lombardo because they know he will not be able to defeat Gov. Steve Sisolak, the Democratic incumbent, in the fall.

“Is this all by design?” Gilbert said. “They knew I was Sisolak’s worst nightmare, the only one to call him out on everything, to keep it real.”

Why does this matter? Gilbert’s attempts to overturn the election results are an echo of what happened in 2020 as well as possibly a harbinger for what is to come when candidates refuse to accept that they lost an election.

Crying foul when a candidate loses has occurred before — in 2016, Democrats criticized the election results when Hillary Clinton lost, although not nearly to the extreme as Republicans’ claims that the 2020 election was stolen. The “Big Lie” claims of the 2020 election, which precipitated an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, have paved the way for more candidates who lose to claim fraud.

And we could be seeing it again in November.

GOP poll shows low grades for Democrats

The Republican State Leadership Committee released results last week of a statewide survey done in Nevada by Cygnal, a predictive analytics and market research firm that serves GOP campaigns and committees, which confirmed other polls and research analysts that predict a Republican wave.

The committee focuses on getting Republicans elected in races down the ballot, such as to the Nevada Legislature.

The poll found that voters want the Legislature to serve as a “check and balance” on President Joe Biden, according to a memo from Cygnal. Forty-one percent of respondents believe the state is “headed in the right direction,” while 47% believe it is on the wrong track.

Forty-two percent of respondents support the elected Democrats in the Legislature while 48% do not, according to the poll.

Forty percent of those surveyed want the Legislature to support Biden’s agenda, while 52% want it to push back on the president.

Thirty-eight percent of Nevadans named the cost of living as the top issue they wanted addressed, as well as creating jobs and growing the economy, according to the poll.

The survey was conducted June 28-30 with 600 likely general election voters, and it has a margin of error of 3.99%, according to Cygnal.

“Nevada Democrats in the Legislature have Nevada at the bottom of the list on every key economic metric as a result of being in lockstep with President Biden’s failing liberal agenda,” Mason Di Palma RSLC deputy communications director, said in a statement. “Nevadans deserve a state legislative body that works for them and not Democrats in Washington, D.C. Republicans are building momentum in Nevada and will continue holding Democrats accountable for their failed record as we near November.”

Like all polls, this should be taken with a grain of salt. But it does match with other polls and surveys across the state and nation. Democrats have a lot of work to do between now and November.

Nevadans in Congress

Congress was out of session last week, giving Nevada’s federal delegation time to tour and learn about different issues around the state.

Sen. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., toured rural Nevada, going to Elko, Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, Goldfield and Tonopah. At the Elko Regional Airport, she learned about different projects that were funded by the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act. In Tonopah, she toured the Tonopah Mining Park Museum and visited the Tonopah Brewing Company to learn about how she can help address the challenges facing small businesses, Rosen’s office said in a statement.

Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., met with Culinary Union workers last week at the MGM Grand and talked about how she is trying to help working families.

Rep. Dina Titus, D-Nev., and other members of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues released a statement in objection to the Biden administration’s plans to proceed with the sale of F-16 jets to Turkey.

“While Turkey’s relenting on their opposition to Sweden and Finland joining NATO is a welcome development, there are still too many outstanding issues to move forward with the sale of F-16s to (President Recep Tayyip) Erdoğan’s government,” the statement says. “Over the last decade, Turkey has not been a productive member of NATO nor a reliable ally to the U.S.”

Titus, along with Reps. Chris Pappas, D-N.H.; Charlie Crist, D-Fla.; Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y.; Frank Pallone, D-N.J.; and John Sarbanes, D-Md., listed concerns in the statement, such as the U.S.-made warplanes being used to enter Greek airspace and Erdoğan announcing he is on the “verge of reinvading Syria” with the intention of targeting Kurdish forces in the north.

“The administration has provided no information on how it would ensure these individuals, whom we have relied on in the past and may need to do so in the future, will be protected from U.S.-developed weaponry,” the statement says.

If the F-16 planes are used to enter Greek airspace, the statement says, it would violate the Arms Export Control Act, which only allows the transfer of equipment for self-defense operations.

“Until the administration can provide suitable answers on how they intended to mitigate the above-listed concerns, we will continue to object to this weapons transfer and do everything we can to ensure that these F-16s are not delivered to the Turkish government,” the statement says.

Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Nev., announced last week that his 2nd Congressional District in Northern Nevada was on track to land more than $32 million for 15 projects. The announcement said that every community project funding request made for Nevada’s Congressional District 2 and submitted to the House Appropriations Committee for the 2023 fiscal year had been forwarded for approval.

“As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I was proud to advocate for and advance funding for critical projects in Nevada’s Second Congressional District, including funds for law enforcement efficiency, wastewater treatment, airport improvements, intersection safety, highway infrastructure advancements, small businesses development, medical school training equipment, and economic revitalization,” Amodei said in a statement.

Those projects include a wastewater treatment plant dewatering press in Fallon, Reno Tahoe Airport Terminal Road improvements, Lake Tahoe instrumentation and data sharing with the Desert Research Institute andexpanding rural nursing development at Western Nevada College, according to the statement from Amodei’s office.

Those measures will next go to the House floor to be voted on, according to Amodei.

The screw is turning on Russian kleptocrats and their corrupt accomplices

Published

A Russian businessman has been arrested by the National Crime Agency (NCA)

A Russian businessman has been arrested by the National Crime Agency (NCA)

Late last week, at a sprawling, multi-million pound property in London, National Crime Agency officers arrested a wealthy Russian businessman who we suspect of offences including conspiracy to commit perjury, fraud and money laundering.

Even for our officers, who work daily to tackle the highest risk and most complex crime threats facing the UK, arresting this profile of suspect isn’t an everyday event.

But what is happening, all of the time, is the NCA taking meaningful action against the corrupt wealth linked to Putin’s regime.

The foundations for this were laid following the tragic poisonings in Salisbury four years ago.  We created a team that for the most part worked covertly gathering intelligence on individuals we suspected of corruption who were active in the UK, and sharing it to enable action by partners across government, law enforcement and the security services.

But after Russia launched its brutal full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24th, we set up our Combatting Kleptocracy Cell, which allowed us to rapidly expand our activity against corrupt elites and bring that work to the forefront of NCA operations.

In the nine months since, the Cell has achieved close to 100 disruptions – which is law enforcement jargon but simply refers to actions that have tangibly reduced or removed a crime threat linked to Russia.

These include court orders freezing millions of pounds linked to people with suspected ties with the Russian regime, while across Europe, North America and beyond, the NCA’s work has assisted partner countries in freezing assets including luxury houses, yachts and aircraft suspected of being illegally held by sanctioned individuals.

But it isn’t only the people directly involved in expropriating wealth and assets from Russia we’re taking action against.  We’re also targeting their UK-based enablers – those who either turn a blind eye or knowingly facilitate the transfer and concealment of dirty money.

These enablers can be wealth managers or accountants, estate agents or solicitors, auctioneers or private security. They are relatively few in number, but the impact they have is far reaching. They undermine the UK economy, making all of us poorer, while helping to fuel Russia’s war

We know that our work is helping to protect our public and institutions from kleptocracy. A number of Russian oligarchs have removed their suspicious or illicit assets from the UK, or chosen to use global financial hubs other than London to move money through. But these corrupt elites have spent decades fine tuning how they abuse UK structures to protect their wealth, and changing the perception of London as a destination of choice for kleptocrats will not be quick. It will take time, legislation, and resource to have the lasting impact that we seek.

Our work continues apace, and is not restricted to  kleptocracy. We’re stepping up NCA activity, upstream, overseas and online as we go after the highest harm criminals and groups affecting the UK, wherever they are and how ever well resourced they may be.  All of them can be assured that there will be no let up from us.

Biden Admin Dissolves Parent Council on Education After Complaints About its Left-Wing Bias

Published

on

By

The Biden administration is dissolving a council created to address parental concerns with education after critics claimed it was filled with left-wing activists.

A lawsuit filed by conservative education groups in July accused the National Parents and Families Engagement Council of being “partisan” and “influenced inappropriately.” The council was created a month prior to create “effective relationships” between educators and parents. Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, advisory groups must be bipartisan and free of outside influence by any special interest.

“The Department has informed Plaintiffs that it is immediately and permanently disbanding the Council and that the Council will not hold any future meetings,” according to the court dismissal obtained by the Daily Caller.

The council included several liberal advocacy groups, the Daily Caller reported:

The council included The National Parents Union, a group that believes schools should be transformed “to eradicate generational, institutions of oppression.” Keri Rodrigues, the president of The National Parents Union, defended a letter by the National School Board Association which compared parents “to domestic terrorists” and requested that federal law enforcement monitor school boards. 

Also on the council was The National Action Network, a group that works towards “a modern civil rights agenda,” and The League of United Latin American Citizens, a group which pushes “educational attainment and political influence” of Hispanic Americans.
