Resisting the Elites: Armed Resistance?

In my previous article, I wrote about Peaceful Resistance. But what about armed resistance? They are certainly individuals who seem to be calling for violence or even civil war in response to our ever-more tyrannical and fascist government. Frankly, I believe many of those individuals are actually outside agitators - federal agents or civilian activists - intentionally causing trouble to embarrass or discredit our side, and even to harass and arrest patriots. Anyone remember Jan. 6th?  Also, the resulting publicity gives them more excuses to push new laws and regulations further limiting freedoms and entrenching their power.

If you haven't yet read it, please read my article Spotting Federal Agents and Other Infiltrators

Armed resistance may become necessary under certain conditions, but is an absolute last resort, as it is extremely difficult with deadly consequences. Most of us are not prepared to become guerrilla fighters, and likely would only get ourselves and probably our families killed. And lone wolf attacks accomplish nothing, except to give the media some wonderful propaganda to spin and to give government an excuse for yet more restrictions to our freedoms. 

I strongly believe in the right to self-defense, but I also strongly reject the unprovoked or unnecessary use of violence, including threats of violence, to achieve our goals. My advice for now is to concentrate instead on resisting in safer and more effective ways.

Resisting the Elites: Peaceful Resistance

Peaceful resistance can be an effective if enough people are willing to do it, and do it consistently. Here are some tips for engaging in peaceful resistance:
  • Educate Yourself: Understand the issues at hand and the reasons behind your resistance. What are you resisting, and why?
  • Educate Others: Knowledge is power, and the more people who understand the issues, the stronger the Resistance will be. Do everything you can to "red-pill" your family, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, and even co-workers.
  • Stay Informed: Keep up to date with current events and developments.
  • Use Peaceful Tactics: There are many non-violent methods of resistance, such as protests, marches, boycotts, and even strikes. The key to peaceful resistance is to stay peaceful. Self-defense is always allowed, but never initiate force or commit unprovoked violence. Never threaten violence. And never, ever threaten a politician or law-enforcement officer, even in jest. You don't  want that kind of attention.  
  • Respect the Rights of Others: Acknowledge and respect the rights and opinions of those who may disagree with you, even if you do not share their views. We have the right to free speech, and our opponents also have that same right. 
  • Communicate Your Message: Use various platforms to spread your message, including social media, flyers, townhalls, newspaper editorials, and public speaking events. Of course, this is predicated on knowing your message and what you want to accomplish. 
  • Organize and Collaborate: Join or create groups of like-minded people to amplify your message and create a larger impact.
  • Nonviolent Civil Disobedience: This can involve actions like sit-ins, protests, marches, boycotts, and even strikes. Always ensure these are peaceful.
  • Boycotts: Refuse to buy or use products or services from companies that are actively working. I see a lot of talk on social media in this area, but little action. When athletes began taking the knee years ago, and sports leagues openly supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda and embracing their ties with the CCP, so many fans decried these developments and said they would never watch again. Yet, week after week, they would sit their asses in front of the TV to watch yet another game. Hypocrites! Same goes for you parents who decry Disney's very open LGBTQ+ agenda, yet still subscribe to Disney+, still take your kid's to Disney theme parks, and still buy Disney toys and videos. 
  • Use Social Media: Social media can be a powerful tool for spreading your message and organizing peaceful resistance. Sure, your account might get "cancelled," but in most cases you can create new accounts anonymously. Better yet, have your real account, which you keep clean from politics and controversial issues, and one or more anonymous accounts which you use for resistance activities. 
  • Be Persistent: Change often takes time, so remain committed and consistent in your efforts. It took us years - make that generations - to get into this mess. It will take an equally long time to dig our way out of it. Be in it for the long-haul, not just an election cycle. Their is no going back to sleep if we want to prevail.

Resisting the Elites: Tips For Being A Resistance Fighter

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Being a Resistance Fighter doesn't equate to grabbing a gun and heading into the streets. It is not about fermenting civil war, committing violence, or threatening violence. Self-defense is always allowed, of course, but violence is an option of last resort. Instead, being a Resistance Fighter is about not yielding to the system being forced upon you. It is about living your life free and well, despite the forces trying to impose their will upon you. 

Click to enlarge.

Here are some tips for being an effective Resistance Fighter:

1) Start with yourself. Build your resilience, self-reliance, and preparedness. In doing so, you will be less dependent upon the system, removing much of the power the system has over you. This includes working hard to improve you health and fitness, overcoming addictions, improving your mental health and attitude, learning practical skills, and building solid relationships (spouse, family, community, church, tribe).

2) Think in terms of concentric circles. 
  • The  bullseye circle = YOU (This is the one circle you have the most control over)
  • The household circle = spouse, children, and other family members living with you (probably the circle you can influence the most)
  • The tribe circle = those you "do life" with. May include close friends, extended family members, fellow church members...
  • The community circle = those living or working in you immediate geographical area, such as neighbors, co-workers...
  • The local circle = Typically your city, town or county.
  • The state circle = The state (or province) where you live.
  • The national level = Most folks will have little actual influence at this level.
  • The global level =  Most folks will have little actual influence at this level.
The idea is that the smaller the circle, the bigger impact you can have. The bigger the circle, the less influence most folks will have. Spend most of you time and effort in the smaller circles. But don't completely ignore the larger circles. 

3) Stay informed. Keep up-to-date with current events at all levels. The more you know, the better you can strategize. Pay attention to both the corporate media and alternative sources. The corporate media will reveal what the Elites want the narrative to be, in both what they cover and don't cover. The alternative media will reveal much about what is actually going on. Be aware that all alternative media are not created equal. Many alternative media sources are also heavily biased, overly emotional, or just plain wrong. Gather information from a variety of sources, compare it with what you are seeing with your own eyes, and always think for yourself

4) Learn survival skills. Learn basic survival skills like self-defense, first aid, gardening, raising chickens and livestock, hunting, fishing, foraging, and starting fires. You will need the skills if society collapses for whatever reasons. Also, learn modern survival skills like situational awareness, money management and personal finance, employability in an age of technology and AI, and dealing with an intrusive government, HOAs, landlords and busybody neighbors. (I've written many articles on these topics, so please check out my Dystopian Survival website!)

5) Learn self-defense. Knowing how to defend yourself could save your life in a dangerous situation. This means learning to avoid bad situations to begin with (situational awareness, being the gray man, etc.), and learning how to defend yourself by both lethal and non-lethal means. 

6) Be discreet. Protect your privacy. In the context of a resistance movement, secrecy is important. Don't share sensitive information with people you don't trust completely (operational security). Be conscious about how you (and your family/tribe) use social media. Protect your online, and real world, privacy. Finding a balance in this area is difficult, and will vary from person to person depending on your own circumstances and concerns. 

7) Build a network/tribe. Connect with like-minded individuals who share your beliefs, values, and goals. Be cautious (see #6 above), but don't be paranoid. This could be the foundation of your resistance movement.

8) Be prepared for the unexpected. Always have a go-bag (bug-out bag) ready with essentials like food, water, first aid supplies, a change of clothes, extra cash, etc. Have physical maps of your area and region.  Wear sturdy shoes/boots that are comfortable for walking. If you must wear dress shoes or high heels for work, carry a spare pair of sneakers with you, or at least have them in your car so you can change into them if needed. (lots of article on bug-out bags and bugging out on my Dystopian Survival website).

9) Know your rights. Familiarize yourself with the constitution and your rights. This will help you navigate interactions with law enforcement and other officials. Yes, they may ignore your rights, but you don't have to make it easy for them by not knowing your rights. Consider keeping a pocket Constitution in your go-bag. (Amazon link: https://amzn.to/2OgaatY)

10) Be ready to adapt. In a rapidly changing environment, flexibility is crucial. Be prepared to change your plans and strategies as needed. Be prepared to move if your location becomes untenable or dangerous for whatever reasons.  See my article Urban Survival - Adaptability Is Key (also appropriate for small towns and rural areas). 

11) Know how to identify federal agents, undercover police, and outside agitators. My article Spotting Federal Agents and Other Infiltrators is a good starting place.   

12) Live your life normally! This is the most important thing you can do. Ignore the insane political correctness and wokeness going on around us. Don't fall for whatever rhetoric the authorities and "experts" are pushing. Use your brain. Don't follow the herd, or fall into the pit of "group think." Always think for yourself. 

If religion is important to you, go to church, pray, read the Bible daily. What if your church has gone "woke"?  Many have. In that case, find a new church or start a home church or Bible study with like-minded folks from your old church! 

If you enjoy hunting, go hunting. Like to eat meat? Eat meat! Are you pro-second amendment? Join GOA. Tired of the LGBTQ+ agenda and celebrations? Teach your kids to be Real Men and Real Women. Join the PTA. Vote in the school board elections. Make your voice heard at school board meetings. Homeschool, or send your kids to a good private or parochial school (but beware, woke is creeping in there, too). 

Don't let the Elites and their system intimidate you into submission.

Resisting the Elites: A "How To" Starter Guide

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

How do we resist the elites trying to destroy America and Western Civilization as we know it? 

The foundation we must build on is resilience, self-reliance, and preparedness, as individuals, families, tribes, and communities. 

Be able to think, and do, for yourself as much as possible. The more self-reliant you and your family are, the less you will be affected by what is coming, and the more you'll be able to resist. Do everything you can to build as much self-reliance and resilience as you can while there is still time (but, the clock is ticking).

My article, A Quick and Easy Outline of Preparedness, is a good place to start. If you want more in depth info from a much more expert voice, check out Pastor Joe Fox's book, Survivalist Family. Fox, a former Green Beret, has written what I consider to be the best guide to beginner and intermediate preparedness and survival. Highly recommended.  

How To Resist?  The best way to resist is to do the the opposite of what they want. 
  • They want open borders, so fight for secure borders and controlled immigration.
  • They want to end national sovereignty, so fight for national sovereignty and a strong military. 
  • They want endless wars to prop up the military-industrial complex, so fight for peace. (Peace through strength, with a non-interventionist foreign policy).
  • They want to ridicule and belittle patriotism, so be patriotic, and encourage others to be patriotic, too. (Celebrate the idea, and ideals, of our nation's founding, not our current wayward path.)
  • They want to end private property rights, so fight for laws protecting private property rights.
  • They want to restrict inheritance, so fight to end restrictions and taxation on inheritance.
  • They want to take away our guns, our means of self-protection, so fight to protect the Second Amendment. 
  • They want a cashless economy, so insist on using cash. 
  • They want to end traditional Christianity, so be a traditional, Bible-believing follower of the Messiah. This definitely means getting out of liberal/progressive churches.
  • They want to end the traditional family, so fight for it. 
  • They want to end traditional ideas of gender, so teach your children to be Real Men and Real Women.
  • They want control over your children's education, health, and bodies, so fight for your kids. 

Other Ideas for Resisting:

  • Honest elections matter, so fight for election reform, voter ID laws, transarency in counting, and an end to ballot harvesting.
  • Control of the Judiciary is critical. Judgeships matter deeply.
  • Be very active in local politics and talk to local officials. Local efforts, where our "leaders" must deal with us face-to-face, can be very effective.
  • In reality, local politics are more important than state politics. And state politics are more important than federal politics. 
  • Influence your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow church members. Don't be cowed by political correctness or wokeness. 
  • Make use of alternative media sources to stay informed. But always think for yourself. 
  • My opinion: the best source of real journalism today is The Epoch Times.  
  • Learn about Technocracy, which is a primary tool the Elites are using to change our world. 
  • A great introduction to Technocracy is my article Technocracy, The Power Elite, and the Transformation of Human Civilization
  • The best source of news regarding technocracy is the website Technocracy News & Trends.
  • Men: Provide for, protect, and lead your family. Don't give in to worldly ways, modern sensibilities, wokeness, and political correctness. Be a Real Man. 
  • Parents: you are responsible for your children's welfare, not schools, teachers, or even the government. Teach your children, and stand between them and the dangers of political correctness and woke ideologies. 
  • Start building networks and communities of like-minded people you can trust. This takes time and effort, which is why it needs to be done now, not later. (Lots of community building articles on my Dystopian Survival website.)
  • Be especially wary of polices and laws that can be used as a "backdoor" to limit or take away our Freedoms. Hate speech laws allow the government to define "hate" however they wish, destroying our First Amendment rights. School anti-bullying policies more often are used to prevent your children from wearing a patriotic shirt ("bullying" immigrants) rather than stopping a real bully from taking your kid's lunch money. Red Flags laws have "gun confiscation" written all over them, especially in light of the APA's willingness to define traditional masculine traits as harmful.
Next up in my series on Resisting the Elites is "Tips For Being A Resistance Fighter." It will post early next week, so check back soon!

Ukraine: The Zelensky Problem

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

On X (formerly Twitter), @DC_Draino made a post which has garnered a lot of attention, including from me. His post (see the image below) makes a very valid point about what I call the Zelensky Problem - the fact that the Ukrainian leader has literally become a dictator, cancelling elections and jailing political opposition. 

Here is the text to @DC_Draino's post:

Zelensky cancelled elections in his country

He arrested his biggest political opponent, banned dissenting media, and shut down opposition political parties

Now he is targeting 350+ Americans with an enemies list

Why the HELL are we sending more money to this little dictator?!

To this list of Zelensky's misdeeds we can add:
  • Jailing American journalist Robert Gonzalez, who died in a Ukrainian prison
  • Threatening American journalist Tucker Carlson for interviewing Putin
  • Banning the Russian Orthodox Church
  • Apparently stealing millions dollars worth of US aid and spending it on expensive luxury homes and cars, and lavish international shopping trips by his wife
A close examination of Zelensky's actions reveal him to be a corrupt dictator, not unlike Russia's Putin. One that the US and the West are spending hundreds of billions of dollars, and risking World World III, to support. Hence, the Zelensky Problem.

Muslim Terror Group Kills 25 Christians In Congo

The following is from International Christian Concern (ICC). Please check out their website at www.persecution.org for more on the persecution and genocide of Christians around the world.

Two Separate Attacks In 3 Days Kills 25 Christians 

6/10/2024 DRC (International Christian Concern) — Members of the Islamic extremist Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) killed nine people in a brutal massacre on June 6 in the Mununze village in the Rwenzori region of Beni territory, Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Members of the militia dumped the victims’ bodies in the nearby Loulo River. 

“The tranquility of our village was shattered by these cruel actions, leaving a trail of sorrow and despair in its wake,” said Masumbuko, one of the survivors. “Though some of us managed to escape, many families were torn apart, their cries echoing through the now somber streets. The sense of security that once enveloped our village has been replaced by fear and anguish.”

Manara, one of the leaders in the area, said villagers are grieving after realizing that the victims had been killed and thrown in a river that they use for drinking and other domestic work. 

“The murder of innocent lives casts a shadow of mourning over the once vibrant community,” he said. “Out of the nine people who were killed and thrown in river Loulo, we managed to get only four bodies. The other five bodies have not been seen yet.” 

The bishop of Beni Anglican Church said that the church in the DRC strongly condemns these killings because when such things happen, families are torn apart, which is against God’s will.

“The memory of those who lost their lives will forever be etched in our hearts as a solemn reminder of the urgent need for unity to end these actions,” the bishop said. “As the church, let’s stand together as an eye of hope amidst despair. May we honor the memory of the fallen by striving for a world where such senseless acts of violence have no place and where every life is cherished and protected.”

This attack occurred three days after the same rebels slaughtered 16 people in Kabweke village, located in Kantine, Beni territory.

Alvin Bragg is behind YouTube's new gun censorship policy.

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

In case you missed it, YouTube recently announced a new censorship policy regarding gun content, effective June 18. Turns out that Alvin Bragg (the Democrat DA in New York conducting lawfare against Donald Trump) is behind it, having pressed YouTube to make the changes. The following press release from Gun Owners of America (GOA) explains the situation:

June 4, 2024

Washington, D.C. — Gun Owners of America (GOA) issued the following statements after YouTube announced a formal change in their policies towards firearms related content:

“Restricting access to adults only—for content that depicts wholly legal and constitutionally-protected activity—is wrong, and it aims to push a sinister narrative to minors that firearms are evil,” said Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President. “In turn, as younger generations come of age, they will not question or push back on further violations of our Second Amendment rights.”

“Alvin Bragg and his anti-gun friends have been aggressively pressuring YouTube to censor and directly prohibit certain content related to guns for years now, and sadly they just succeeded and free speech has once again become the victim,” said Aidan Johnston, GOA’s Director of Federal Affairs. “Congress must demand answers from YouTube on how influential DA Bragg and gun control groups were in facilitating this change in policy and determine whether the Biden Administration or it’s White House Office of Gun Control was weaponized to force the censorship of Second Amendment content.”

Background: This week, YouTube and parent company Google announced plans to change their policy on firearms related content – effective June 18th. Under the new policy, which will be retroactive and apply to all existing content on the platform, the following will apply:

Content showing the use of homemade firearms, automatic firearms, and certain firearm accessories will be age restricted. Content showing how to remove “safety devices” will be banned. Firearms in movies, video games, military and police footage, and warzone footage will not categorically be age restricted—creating a double standard for Hollywood and anti-gun corporate media. In April, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg sent a letter to YouTube CEO Neil Mohan urging him to alter their algorithms to ensure that certain firearms content not be promoted. Additionally, he urged the company to directly censor and remove certain firearms-related content.

This letter came on the heels of Media Matters publishing an anti-gun propaganda piece attacking YouTube and certain content the biased “media” outlet deemed unfavorable. Additionally, in May of 2023, the anti-gun group Everytown published an article highlighting anti-gun research about YouTube’s firearms content from the Tech Transparency Project, which was a key citation in DA Bragg’s letter.

Anti-gun groups are continuing their crusade against online firearms content, with the hope of leveraging these efforts into censorship and lawsuits should social media companies refuse to comply. GOA—which runs a YouTube channel with over 175,000 subscribers and counting— will continue to push back.

Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit grassroots lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over two million members and activists. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.

FBI Provided Democrats with Information on Whistleblowers

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

6-10-2024 (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced last week it received 54 pages of records from the Department of Justice in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit which show the FBI Office of Congressional Affairs provided a Democrat staffer with information on FBI whistleblowers who detailed the bureau’s targeting of political opponents and retaliation for their testifying at a May 18, 2023, hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

A May 23, 2023, email from Damon Marx, senior counsel in the office of New York Democrat Rep. Dan Goldman, shows that the FBI provided documents apparently pertaining to the whistleblowers that were “very helpful” to Goldman.

Marx writes to an FBI Office of Congressional Affairs official whose name is redacted:

We spoke last week before the Weaponization hearing on Thursday. Thanks again for sending over those documents. They were very helpful to the Congressman.

Francesco (my colleague cc’ed here) and I will be good points of contact for you going forward. Both of us broadly cover law enforcement; however, in terms of specifics, I cover cybersecurity, counterterrorism, and much of the Congressman’s committee work, while Francesco covers issues ranging from immigration to gun violence.

We would love to meet in person next time you have the chance. Please let us know when you’re available for coffee or just to swing by the office. And don’t hesitate to reach out on any other matters!

The CC’d colleague is Francesco Arreaga, then a Democrat staffer on the House Homeland Security Committee and former Elizabeth Warren campaign staffer.

On May 18, 2023, a hearing was held by the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Highlights of the hearing include:

It is clear from these disclosures, and especially in wake of Special Counsel John Durham’s report, that the FBI has become politically weaponized.

To date, the Committee and Select Subcommittee have received whistleblower testimony from several current and former FBI employees who chose to risk their careers to expose abuses and misconduct in the FBI. Some of these employees—Special Agents Garret O’Boyle and Stephen Friend, Supervisory Intelligence Analyst George Hill, and Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen—have chosen to speak on the record about their experiences.

During the hearing, Allen was allowed to discuss the suspension he incurred for merely forwarding open-source news articles to his colleagues, as his job required:

Q. And why exactly did you send th[e] email[s]?

A. I sent [the emails] just for awareness because the[y] . . . indicated potential problems with the investigation as far as informants were concerned, and our organization’s potential forthrightness about the utilization of informants there on that day. That might have some impact on our cases and the subjects that we’re looking up, and just a general awareness overall for the investigation as a whole, that there might have been some kind of potential Federal involvement with the activities on January 6th, and I thought it was important enough that it like warranted our attention, you know.

Q. Is it safe to say that you sending th[ose] email[s] was part of your job at the time?

A. Yes.

The Committee explained that “[b]ecause these open-source articles questioned the FBI’s handling of the violence at the Capitol, the FBI suspended Allen for ‘conspiratorial views in regards to the events of January 6th . . . .’”

The day before the hearing, the FBI revoked the security clearances of three agents who testified, Steve Friend, Garret O’Boyle, and Marcus Allen, according to a letter the bureau sent to congressional investigators and obtained by ABC News. Allen’s clearance was recently reinstated.

The records include a May 16, 2023, email to an FBI OCA official, whose name is redacted, from Marx, who writes:

It’s my understanding that you’re out this week, but if you have a moment to chat about some of the witnesses for Thursday’s Weaponization hearing, it would be super helpful. Please let me know if you’re available tomorrow when you have a chance.

The FBI OCA official responds:

Sure, give me a call when you can.

In a May 9, 2023, email to Goldman’s then-Deputy Chief of Staff and Legislative Director Erin Meegan, an FBI OCA official whose name is redacted writes:

I was disappointed I didn’t get the opportunity to meet you during our trip to Quantico. We are planning to take another trip there, maybe later this summer, so hopefully you’ll be able to join us then. I serve as [redacted]. OCA plays a key role in communicating with lawmakers and their staffers about FBI activities and is the primary point of contact for all Congressional matters.

I would like an opportunity to meet with you to properly introduce myself and tell you more about the mission of OCA, along with providing information about what OCA can offer your office. I would also like to know what issues Rep. Goldman and your office are interested in to see if there is any way I can assist in those areas. Additionally, based on my background, I think I may be able to provide insight or answer some questions about issues that do not require senior FBI leadership briefings or hearings.

The Judicial Watch October 2023 lawsuit that uncovered these documents was filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a May 18, 2023, FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Justice. Judicial Watch asked for:

All records of communication between any official or employee of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and any member of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, any staff member for the subcommittee, or any staff member for any subcommittee member between April 1, 2023, and the present.

For purposes of clarification, in the request, Judicial Watch provided the following link, which identified the members of the committee: https://judiciary.house.gov/subcommittees/committee-judiciary/select-subcommittee-weaponization-federal-government

“These troubling records show how the FBI colluded with Democrats hostile to FBI whistleblowers who were set to testify to Congress,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch is in the forefront of uncovering the weaponizing of the federal government against whistleblowers.

Judicial Watch represented Marcus Allen, a decorated veteran, FBI analyst and witness before the Weaponization Subcommittee, in a lawsuit against FBI Director Christopher Wray for violating Allen’s constitutional rights by falsely accusing him of holding “conspiratorial views,” stripping his security clearance, and suspending him from duty without pay. On May 31, 2024, Allen’s security clearance was reinstated.

In June 2023, Judicial Watch sued for all FBI communications from bureau officials using several systems and databases regarding investigations carried out after an October 4, 2021, memo from Attorney General Merrick Garland instructing investigators to target American parents due to an alleged “increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools” In a March 21, 2023, report on the Garland memo, the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government cited FBI data which states that 25 inquiries under the threat tag “EDUOFFICIALS” had been opened since the bureau began tracking the alleged incidents.

In September 2022, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for all records in the possession of FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten regarding an August 6, 2020, briefing provided to members of the U.S. Senate. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) that raised concerns that the briefing was intended to undermine the senators’ investigation of Hunter Biden.

Judicial Watch recently sued the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for all agency records relating to the Department of Justice or Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigations of Hunter Biden and all records relating to efforts to interview lawyer Patrick Kevin Morris regarding Hunter Biden.

DOJ Admits Special Counsel Transcript of Biden Interviews Is Inaccurate

From a Judicial Watch Press Release dated June 1, 2024:

Biden Justice Department Admits Special Counsel Transcript of Biden Interviews Is Inaccurate

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that the White House admitted in a federal court that the transcript of President Joe Biden’s testimony to Special Counsel Robert Hur is not accurate and is missing “filler words (such as ‘um’ or ‘uh’)” and words that “may have been repeated when spoken (such as ‘I, I’ or ‘and, and’)” which were sometimes “only listed a single time in the transcripts.” In its new filing the Biden Justice Department makes the extraordinary assertions of executive privilege and privacy to hide the Biden audio. The agency makes the unprecedented assertion that because “AI” could be used to alter Biden’s words the material should be kept secret. 

The Justice Department filing, filed around 11:00 p.m. last night (Friday), reads in part:

13. After the interview, SCO [Special Counsel Office] created written transcripts of the audio recording with the assistance of a trained professional court reporter – one transcript for each day of the interview. I have read the entirety of the written transcripts of the interview. As I listened to the audio recording, I compared it to the transcripts of the audio recording and specifically listened for differences between the transcripts and audio recording. In a few instances, the transcripts indicate that some words from the audio recording are indiscernible. In listening to the audio recording and reviewing the transcripts, I agree that in those instances the words are indiscernible.

14. The interview transcripts are accurate transcriptions of the words of the interview contained in the audio recording, except for minor instances such as the use of filler words (such as “um” or “uh”) when speaking that are not always reflected on the transcripts, or when words may have been repeated when spoken (such as “I, I” or “and, and”) but sometimes was only listed a single time in the transcripts. Besides these exceedingly minor differences, based on my simul­taneous review of the transcripts while listening to the audio recording, the transcripts accurately capture the words spoken during the interview on the audio recording with no material differences between the audio recording and transcripts. None of the minor differences include any audible substantive exchanges – that is, based on my review, there is no material omission of words be­ tween the audio recording and transcripts. Special Counsel Hur and FBI personnel who attended the interview and compared the audio recording to the transcripts also informed me of their determination that the transcripts accurately reflect the words spoken on the audio recording aside from the minor instances I described above. Special Counsel Hur emphasized to me that it was important for purposes of his investigation that the interview transcripts be accurate.

“Wow. Judicial Watch’s FOIA lawsuit forced the Biden team to admit what everyone suspected – that the transcript is not accurate and was changed in a way to help Biden,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There is nothing ordinary about this, and the transcript inaccuracy issues seem to help Biden’s political campaign needs. We today initiated a new FOIA request on this Biden’s Nixonian tape scandal.”

On March 11, 2024, Judicial Watch filed its FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the Department of Justice failed to respond to a February 2024 FOIA request for records of all Special Counsel interviews of President Biden (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:24-cv-00700)). A redacted transcript of the Biden interview was released on April 15.

In April, the Justice Department told the court that it would not disclose the audio recordings of special counsel interviews with President Joe Biden in order to protect Biden’s “privacy” interests.

On February 5, 2024, Hur issued the “Report of the Special Counsel on the Investigation Into Unauthorized Removal, Retention, and Disclosure of Classified Documents Discovered at Locations Including the Penn Biden Center and the Delaware Private Residence of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.”

In the report, Hur called Biden a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” and declined to charge Biden with a “serious felony:”

We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory. Based on our direct interactions with and observations of him, he is someone for whom many jurors will want to identify reasonable doubt. It would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him-by then a former president well into his eighties-of a serious felony that requires a mental state of willfulness.

Prior to the finalization of the report, the White House issued a letter to the Special Counsel’s office attacking the report’s “treatment of President Biden’s memory,” and added “there is ample evidence from your interview that the President did well in answering your questions …”

The Heritage Foundation and a CNN-led media coalition have recently been joined with Judicial Watch’s lawsuit.

Judicial Watch has several ongoing FOIA lawsuits about Biden’s document scandals and the related unprecedented partisan prosecutorial and judicial abuses of former President Donald J. Trump.

U.S. Air Force Hosting ‘Drag Story Time’ and LGBT+ Events Aimed At Minors

Summary:  The U.S. Military has officially "gone woke" and is actively helping to organize and even pay for, with taxpayer dollars, drag shows and other LGBT+ events, according to official Air Force documents. Many of these shows and events are intentionally aimed at minors. 

The following is a press release from Judicial Watch, a legal watchdog group that uncovered the records through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

U.S. Air Force Hosted ‘Drag Story Time’ and Other ‘Drag’ Events

5-30-2024 (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it received 25 pages of records regarding drag shows, drag story hours and other pride events for military personnel and their dependent minors organized and paid for by the U.S. Air Force.

The documents were obtained through a May 5, 2023, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) by Judicial Watch and CatholicVote Civic Action. The Defense Department issued at least half a dozen “no records” responses to the FOIA request prior to finally releasing these records. Judicial Watch and Catholic Vote requested:

All emails and text messages sent to and from the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd J. Austin, III, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Kathleen Hicks and the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff regarding drag shows and drag story hours on U.S. military installations…

All Department of Defense documentation, including but not limited to PowerPoints, flyers, handouts, that were or are being used to promote any drag shows and drag story hours on U.S. military installations…

All Department of Defense documentation regarding the funding of drag shows and drag story hours on U.S. military installations …

A June 10, 2021, social media post by the Ramstein & Vogelweh Air Force Libraries advertises:

We’re celebrating PRIDE month with our very first DRAG STORY TIME! Our local Drag King, Sauvage, will be reading some of our favorite stories about what makes each of us special. Story time begins at 1030!

Graphics included with the post include a rainbow flag and two books from which Drag King Sauvage intends to read. The first book is titled “I Am Perfectly Designed” by Karamo Brown. The second book is titled “The HIPS on the DRAG QUEEN Go Swish, Swish, Swish” with a depiction of three males in dresses.

The records also include a graphic for a June 2 “Drag Queen Story Time” event at the Ramstein Library.

An advertisement for an 18 and older event on June 4 called “Drag Karaoke” at “Club E” with “special guest from Monarchy of RoyalTEA” announces prizes for “best dressed” and drink specials.

An advertisement for a seven-week summer reading program re-promotes “Drag Queen Storytime” on June 10 and shows each week given a different color identification for events that include virtual story times, teen socials and scavenger hunts.

The newly obtained records include several additional advertisements for adult events (e.g. Bingo Night, Karaoke Night and D&I Pride Night) at “Club E” and the “Galaxy Club.”

A communication from the marketing department of the 100th Force Support Squadron discusses proofs of brochures, posters and tickets for a “LGBT Obsurvance [sic] Event” to be held at the Galaxy Club on February 25, 2022. The names of all participants in the chain are redacted.

One individual requests:

Can you pretty please with a cherry on top please add, Drag In front of Show? Drag Show: 7:pm, I will need it on the tickets as well. Will I be getting a proof for the 250 pre-sale tickets? Please advise.

Later in the chain, an individual states:

I just had TSg [Redacted] in my office requesting LGBT Observance removed and changed to Drag Show. She claims she spoke to the FSSS [Force Support Squadron] commander. If you like [sic] to confirm with her before changing. I will pick up what is printed. I will not need anymore [sic] printed material except for an electronic sli.de with the change so they can print as they wish. I will take the 60 tickets and all printed material. It will work. No more printed material we are fine with what was done.

May 2022 meeting minutes from an international diversity and inclusion group called “Pathfinders” lists an extensive number of upcoming Pride Month and Diversity Day events that will be supported at Ramstein Air Force Base.

A May 2022 email with redacted sender and recipient(s) and subject line “Diversity and Inclusion Events” contains a list of upcoming events:
  • Luau at the Crown – Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM) 
  • Lei Making at the CDC (RAFA & RAFC) 
  • Luau at the Stukeley (AAPIHM) 
  • Lunch and Learn (AAPIHM) 
  • Origami at the Youth Center (RAFA only) 
  • Color Run (RAFC) 
  • Juneteenth (RAFA & RAFC) 
  • Drag Show Bingo (RAFA) 
  • Glow Party/Karaoke (RAFA) 
  • Diversity Day (All bases) – Strat Calendar 
In a May 30, 2022, email with redacted sender and recipient and subject line “Drag Events” the sender writes:

I have attached our posters, FSS [Force Support Squadron] Calendar, and screen shots of the Facebook events. I’ve also attached a screenshot of the video the drag queen sent us to promote the events. The full video is too big for the NIPR server. The images are too big for the server so I am sending this in 2 emails. Also, I’m sure we also did at least one e-blast but I can’t seem to find it in my email. Let me know if you need anything else.

A June 2022 invoice for $400 covers booking Ms. Lexi Andrews, Drag Queen, for an appearance at “Drag Queen Bingo” on June 23 and a performance at a “Glow Party” the following day.

“The Department of Defense has once again proven that radical leftist ideology is more important than military preparedness and protecting Americans from tangible threats at home and abroad,” said Tim Huelskamp, Ph.D., CatholicVote Senior Advisor. “After an entire year of stonewalling, the DOD finally returned materials from just one command in one branch, which confirmed what we feared – that taxpayer funds were being used to promote drag shows and radical gender ideology on military bases, with full approval from Air Force leadership.”

“How on Earth is it appropriate to spend our limited defense dollars on promoting these sexually themed events for children and adults rather than on advancing the military’s mission,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “As we see in these troubling Air Force records, our nation’s military is being ruined by woke ideology.”
