June 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland warned Friday that the Justice Department will be “scrutinizing” the states currently undertaking audits of the 2020 presidential election, hinting that the Biden administration intends to punish states for looking too closely at President Joe Biden’s victory last fall, as well as states that have enacted new safeguards for election integrity in the months since.

“Many of the justifications proffered in support of these post-election audits and restrictions on voting have relied on assertions of material vote fraud in the 2020 election that have been refuted by the law enforcement and intelligence agencies of both this administration and the previous one, as well as by every court — federal and state — that has considered them,” Garland claimed, ABC News reports.

The Biden Justice Department will be “scrutinizing new laws that seek to curb voter access,” and “where we see violations of federal law, we will not hesitate to act,” he declared.

Particularly in light of the Biden administration’s support for the so-called “For the People” Act (which would force every state to dramatically relax standards for vote registration and absentee voting and forbid basic security measures such as photo identification), conservatives see Garland’s remarks as having less to do with upholding election law and more to do with intimidating states that persist in questioning Biden’s victory, which came under suspicion thanks in large part to last year’s drastic expansion of no-excuse mail voting and relaxed standards for absentee ballots.

Garland’s remarks echo a common refrain that stolen-election fears are a “debunked conspiracy theory” on the grounds that legal challenges to the election results failed in court. In fact, while some of the legal briefs filed on behalf of former President Donald Trump were flawed, many others were dismissed over process issues without a judge ever considering the cases on the merits.

The Biden Administration has incredibly given permission to U.S. embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag alongside the American flag for the rest of the year.

This order is an outrageous and insulting affront to American identity and sovereignty, and must be rescinded immediately!

Please SIGN this petition to demand that U.S. embassies around the world fly the American flag ONLY!

According to a leaked memo, quoted below and published by Human Events News on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken urged embassies to push Black Lives Matter messaging and authorized them to "hang BLM flags" "for calendar year 2021."

"As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management (M) to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission."

"The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact."

Of course, eliminating racism is a positive thing, but NOT by promoting the Black Lives Matter organization or movement which have been linked to the following radical actions and ideas:

  • Violent protests and the general destabilization of our society
  • Defunding of our police departments
  • The overthrow of the nuclear family
  • Perpetual marxist revolution

Only a miniscule proportion of the American population supports the radical ideology and actions of the BLM organization and movement. In fact, polling shows that a strong majority of Americans believe that "All Lives Matter," rather than just the lives of just one race of Americans.

The Biden Administration's promotion of this Leftist symbolism and ideology is both dangerous and deliberately misleading.

And, it is the worst kind of virtue signaling, as the message being sent to the rest of the world is: "Get on board with the radical, marxist and revolutionary ideology of the BLM organization and movement if you want a favorable response from the United States government."

This kind of cultural imperialism and coercion is downright insulting to our allies and partners abroad.

But, it also demonstrates how the current U.S. administration is beholden to the radical leftist element of the Democratic Party -- which is downright insulting to most average Americans.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition demanding that the U.S. Department of State rescind permission to fly the BLM flag at U.S. embassies around the world.

Then, please CONTACT the Department of State by email or by telephone, to politely, but firmly, demand that only the U.S. flag, and not the BLM flag, be flown at U.S. diplomatic installations.

The State Department may be contacted by email at this webpage: https://register.state.gov/contactus/contactusform

The Office of the Secretary of State may be contacted at this telephone number: 202-647-4000

Last month, Arizona’s Republican Senate President Karen Fann alleged that the ongoing audit of her state’s election results has so far found evidence that “the entire ‘Database’ directory from the D drive of the machine ‘EMSPrimary’ has been deleted,” removing “election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena”; as well as “apparent omissions, inconsistencies, and anomalies relating to Maricopa County’s handling, organization, and storage of ballots.”

Last week, Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations reported that Superior Court Judge Brian Amero (a Democrat donor) found allegations of “strangely pristine” (as if photocopied) absentee ballots compelling enough to order the unsealing of all 147,000 mail ballots counted in Fulton County, Georgia. Biden won Georgia by just 12,000 votes.
