Ohio Governor Mike DeWine
A group of Ohio Republicans has officially filed articles of impeachment against Gov. Mike DeWine (R) in response to his coronavirus orders.

GOP state Rep. John Becker of Clermont County led a group including fellow Republican state Reps. Nino Vitale, Candice Keller and Paul Zeltwanger in filing 12 articles of impeachment against DeWine, calling it an "effort to restore the rule of law."

The allegations claim DeWine's administration implemented unconstitutional orders in response to the pandemic. In a statement shared with local news outlets, Becker's office blasted DeWine, alleging:
"mismanagement, malfeasance, misfeasance, abuse of power, and other crimes include, but are not limited to, meddling in the conduct of a presidential primary election, arbitrarily closing and placing curfews on certain businesses, while allowing other businesses to remain open."
The group of state Republican lawmakers argues that DeWine violated Ohioans' civil liberties by issuing a stay-at-home order and requiring them to wear masks. They have argued that the face covering rule "promotes fear, turns neighbors against neighbors, and contracts the economy by making people fearful to leave their homes."

'Woke folk' strike again? Eyerolls after UK uni students call for banning the word 'black' as a negative adjective

University of Manchester, England
Undergraduates at the University of Manchester have suggested that restrictions be placed on the word 'black' after a report published by the institution said that some minority students complained about "divisive" language.

The university recently carried out a review of issues specific to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff and faculty. One section of the report, citing feedback from "some black students," said that there were "linguistic concerns about Black being associated with negative expressions" such as "blackmail" and "black sheep." The document described the terms as "divisive and not inclusive."

According to the Telegraph, the university's students' union recommended that such terms and "any other use of the word 'black' as an adjective to express negative connotations" should be prohibited in research papers, lecture slides, and books published by professors. The student group claims that there is a "colonial history" attached to using black as an adjective, and that the practice should be done away with, especially following the ascendance of the global Black Lives Matter movement.

As the British paper points out, the allegedly racist roots of the word are disputed by experts.

A mathematician who offered the results of his investigation regarding allegations of voter fraud in front of members of the Arizona State Legislature said that he's been suspended from Twitter.

"Just got suspended OFF TWITTER AGAIN.... Guess I'm no longer welcomed there anymore," Bobby Piton wrote on social media website Parler.

An account on Twitter with his name says, "Account suspended ... Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules." It's unclear why Piton's account was suspended, and Twitter has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Piton, at the event on Monday, stated that based on his analysis, "I would have never certified" the election results in some battleground states. "I'd rather resign than certify those results," he said, adding, "I believe they're fraudulent ... assuming that the data that I got is accurate."

Comment: Gateway Pundit adds:


Twitter will NOT ALLOW dissent.

Despite the mountains of evidence of elections fraud you are NO LONGER allowed to discuss this publicly and keep your twitter privileges.

Nevada judge has ordered inspection of Clark County election equipment

Former Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt speaks at press conference announcing Trump campaign lawsuit in Carson City challenging election results, November 17, 2020
President Trump tweeted late Monday night that a Nevada judge has ordered the inspection of voting equipment in Clark County.

"A judge in Nevada has ordered Clark County officials to allow an inspection of the elections equipment and sealed containers used in the 2020 election by 1:00 P.M. tomorrow. @RichardGrenell @AdamLaxalt @mschlapp"

Comment: The Gateway Pundit also reported Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria is dodging a subpoena service :
Clark County, Nevada Registrar Joe Gloria is hiding from service of a subpoena by the Trump campaign, according to a post by a columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Victor Joecks wrote on Twitter Monday night, ".@realDonaldTrump's campaign tells me they've been trying to serve Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria with a subpoena since Wednesday. County workers locked the building to keep them out and then Gloria hid in his house all weekend. What are Gloria and Clark County hiding?"


Nevada Trump campaign official and former state attorney general Adam Paul Laxalt wrote in a Review-Journal op-ed two weeks ago about irregularities by Gloria in the recent election:
..."In Clark County, registrar Joe Gloria used a new machine to verity signatures for mail-in ballots. He inexplicably and unilaterally lowered the signature-matching accuracy standard on this machine used to count ballots to 40 percent — well below the manufacturer's recommended setting. AI and computer-vision experts have said that once the factory setting on the machine is altered, it takes months of effort from a massive team with the appropriate expertise to get it back to a reliable standard.

There are more than 600,000 mail-ballot signatures statewide, roughly 200,000 of which have gone through this machine in Clark County. Under this system, an unbelievable 99 percent of Clark County ballots have been counted as accurate, with no opportunity for any signatures to be challenged once verified.

Additionally, the county refused to allow any meaningful observation of signature verification. We simply don't know how many of these signatures are bad and thus how many improper votes were counted.

We now know that there are thousands of illegal votes consisting of a combination of dead voters, out-of-state voters, double voters (those who cast ballots in Nevada and another state), among other improper votes. Gloria has said any look he would take at possible problems is complaint-based — in other words, not proactive but reactive in the event a complaint comes in. The same is true of the secretary of state's office. There's no mechanism for these votes to be checked if officials aren't actively poring through these categories of voters where fraud is likely...

Debenhams, one of Britain's biggest department store chains with more than two centuries of history, is set to fall victim to the coronavirus pandemic after rescue-deal talks ended in failure.

The retailer, which went into administration in April for the second time in a year, announced on Tuesday that it is going to start the "wind-down of Debenhams UK." The company is still looking for buyers for all or parts of the business, but if no offer emerges, it will close all 124 stores across the country, possibly next year, leaving 12,000 jobs hanging in the balance.

"The economic landscape is extremely challenging and, coupled with the uncertainty facing the UK retail industry, a viable deal could not be reached," joint administrator at FRP Advisory, Geoff Rowley, said in the statement.

Nevada Republican insiders took $$ from Dominion Election Systems

Former Nevada Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison

Former Nevada Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison
Yesterday, President Trump's legal team attacked Dominion Voting Systems Company for its ties to Communist China, and for corrupting foreign and domestic elections, including the 2020 general election. Trump's lawyer, Sidney Powell, attacked numerous Governors and Secretary of States for their ties and corruption to the company now accused of switching votes in numerous states like Nevada.

Many Republicans, including Adam Laxalt, have been extremely critical of Nevada Sec of State Barbara Cegavske for taking a public stand against Pres. Trump this entire election season. Cegavske's main supporters, including Mark Hutchinson and folks behind the Republican State Leadership Committee PAC accepted donations directly and indirectly from Dominion Voting Systems Company in July 2020. By doing this, Cegavske was compromised and could not speak out against the company nor investigate any allegations of corruption which have now surfaced. BTW Dominion only gave one donation ever, only to the Republican group, according to publicly available reporting system, which Cegavske controls.

On July 24, 2020 Dominion Voting Systems donated to the Republican State Leadership Committee PAC. The PAC lists Former Nevada Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison's law firm as the agent for the Political Action Committee.

Brutal police beating of maskless French man hints at frightening future for locked-down Europe

A shocking video of French police beating up a man who wasn't wearing a mask showed the authorities' iron-fist approach to enforcing regulations and suppressing protests. Will this be the new norm when the pandemic has passed?

A British shopper recently spotted by police failing to wear a face mask decided to heap abuse on the hapless copper patiently explaining the rules to her before she simply flung her basket to the ground and strolled off without a care in the world. All very British, and no one was hurt - but it illustrated the frustration normal people are feeling over this never-ending pandemic.

Meanwhile, in Paris, a young, black music producer leaving his studio without wearing a face mask was spied by three policemen who set upon him and forced him back into his studio, where they kicked, punched and beat him with a truncheon for five minutes before he managed, with the help of friends, to bundle them out the door.

Comment: Is it any wonder French police - and their ponerized masters - want to criminalize those filming them in action? However this brutality is nothing new because the Yellow Vest protests saw police brutality become a regular event.
