Serious Questions About the Attempted Assassination of the Former President of the United States

Peer Reviewed Politics Attempted Assassination Article:

Former President Donald Trump was shot at a election rally in Butler, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 13, 2024.  The shooters name is Thomas Matthew Crooks, who was a 20-year-old male.  Thomas Matthew Crooks shot at the former President multiple times and hit the former president in the ear with a bullet, while the former president was on a stage, during an election rally at Butler Farm Show grounds.

We started reporting the shooting on Facebook as soon we got a chance.  We reported what sounded like was a rifle with a .223 round or something very similar being shot from the rifle.  We know the sound, because we have heard AR-15 rifles being fired before on audio tape and around our neighborhood, where we live in Washington State.

What occurred at this rally at the Butler Farm?

After former President Trump was struck in the ear with the bullet, he must have realized that he was being shot at and immediately dropped to the stage floor behind the podium.  The former president’s secret service detail rush over to where the former president was and shielded him, while he was on the stage floor.  A total of 5 shots rang out.  After that, you could hear another three shots ring out, which sound like it was from a different caliber weapon.  Other associates who were watching the rally with us on TV, when the shooting began, stated they heard approximately 5 shots and then 3 additional shots after the first five shots.  We all believe that the last three shots were from the Secret Service Snipers and/or law enforcement shooting back at the shooter, killing him.

Our understanding, through multiple witness accounts, which had made statements to the media, stated the Secret Service sniper had shot the Thomas Matthew Crooks.  One of witness that seen the shooting of Crooks, who spoke with a BBC reporter stated that Thomas Matthew Crooks was shot in the head, killing the assailant on the roof.  According to multiple accounts the shooter was on the roof of a building, adjacent to the stage, which was approximately 130 to 155 yards stage right of the stage, where former President Trump was giving his speech on.

While we were watching the rally, the microphone was still on, and you could hear the audio of the Secret Service calling out a code name several times and them talking among themselves.  You could also hear the former president talking too.

After the shooting stopped, the Secret Service were asking someone if it was clear and then they attempted to move the former President from the location.  You could hear the former president stating that he wanted his shoes.  We later found out that the Secret Service had thrown Trump's shoes off the stage.

Then after about 10 to 15 seconds, the former President stood up with the Secret Service agents and held his fist in the air and stated, "Fight, Fight, Fight," to the audience, with blood on his face.  The crowd cheered and started chanting, "USA, USA, USA!"

Eventually Secret Service was able to get the 6' 3" president to move by cocooning the former president, pushing, and shuffling him along the stage, then moving the former president down the stairs without his shoes on and finally off the stage.  The Secret Service got the president to safety of Secret Service vehicle on the Farm grounds.  It seemed to take a very long time to accomplish this and the Secret Service seem to be unorganized at times.

One agent even struggled with bolstering her pistol.  Other agents struggled with the their sunglasses and running into each other outside of the vehicle.  It appeared to be very uncoordinated.  A video we later looked at, showed at least two agents had took cover behind the stage, rather protecting the former president.

What was truly amazing is that the former President was able to stand and say, "Fight, Fight, Fight," during all this commotion.  I stated, “What a brave man to stand up and say this, while just being shot at.  There is no doubt that Former President Trump is running for president to protect all of us."  I found this comparable to what those Marines did in Iwo Jima, who raised the U.S. Flag during World War II.  I've never in my life have seen such heroics by a person after being shot at.

When and where did this all happen?

On Saturday, July 13, 2024 at 6:11pm Eastern Time, the shooter's named is Thomas Matthew Crooks, he used a AR-15 to attempt the assassination of the former President of United State of America, Donald J. Trump at election rally in Butler, Pennsylvania.  This city is in the West part of Pennsylvania.  This event was held at the Butler Farm Show Ground, which is a rural area in the Western part of Pennsylvania.

Who else was hurt and killed?

Three other people were also shot by the shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks from the bullets he shot, which either missed the former president and/or may have grazed the president and hit the bystanders with those bullets.

One person died, which was about 20 feet away from the former president.  This person from our understanding was the Fire Chief at the farm.  His name was Corey Comperatore, he is considered to be a hero too for his heroics in shielding a family from the bullets being fired by the shooter.

Two other people in the grand stands were hit by the bullets being fired by shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks.  These two people were last known to be in critical condition, according to what we heard, but we have not heard any updates on their conditions.  Details are still emerging about how this all happened as well as we are getting more information about the shooter.

What agencies are investigating this attempted assassination?

According to media reports, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has taken jurisdiction of this incident.  According to the FBI, the shooter had no ID on him.  The FBI retrieved the shooter’s phone, which was locked at time they retrieved it.  The FBI stated they were sending the phone to Quantico, which is the headquarters of the FBI.  Quantico has an investigative lab and scientist to extract and preserve evidence in multiple disciplines, like trace evidence, latent fingerprints, firearms/toolmarks, and cracking phones.

Our question here is why did the FBI agents not try to unlock the phone first, by using the dead Thomas Matthew Crooks face or finger prints to unlock the phone?  The problem is it may have been possible that another person(s) may have been involved in the shooting too and not trying to unlock the phone would have given that person plenty of time to escape and/or even leave the country.

What is known about the shooter and what was the modus operandi of the shooter?

The shooter’s name is Thomas Matthew Crooks, who was 20-year-old male that live in of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.  Crooks was killed by a Secret Service Sniper according to FBI reports.  According to Kevin Rojek, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh field office stated, “We do not currently have an identified motive, although our investigators are working tirelessly to attempt to identify what that motive was.”

You would think the MO of the shooter would be very clear to the FBI here, as it appears Thomas Matthew Crooks was trying to assassinate the former president of the United States with an AR-15 rifle from the top of a roof on a building, which by the way was approximately 130 to 150 yards away from the stage that former president of the United States was doing an election rally from.

Heck, the FBI stated the people at the Capital of the January 6th 2021 protest, where called insurrectionist in less than a day and not one of those folks even had a weapon, either.  It’s sad that our President and the FBI refused to call it an attempted assignation.  This definitely doesn't give us a warm fuzzy feeling like anyone is going to get to the bottom of this anytime soon, either.

According to law enforcement, they found explosives in Thomas Matthew Crooks vehicle, and later after a search of Thomas Matthew Crooks home, where he lived with his parents, law enforcement also found explosives.

After doing some investigative work into Thomas Matthew Crooks, we found out that Crooks had done a commercial for Black Rock when he was younger, in year of 2022.  Blackrock then pulled the video online, so we could not post the link to the video, but luckily, we found that the New York post had got their hands on a copy of the video and you can see the video here:

Attempted Presidential Assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks

Also, to our understanding, the building that Thomas Matthew Crooks was on, belonged to AGR International, which provides testing equipment, laboratory services and consulting for bottle quality assurance to help bottle manufacturers around the world produce high-quality containers while improving efficiencies, reducing costs and contributing to the responsible management of resources.

This building's parking lot and maybe the inside of the building was being used as a staging area for law enforcement for this rally, which was confirmed by a bunch of different sources.

With all this information we found out, we now have questions that really need to be answered by Congress, the Secret Service, the FBI, and the local police.

  • So, how did Thomas Matthew Crooks escape detection in a staging area for law enforcement?

  • How did Thomas Matthew Crooks get this close to the stage with a AR-15 rifle, where the former president of the United States was speaking from?

  • How did Thomas Matthew Crooks even get AR-15 and other type of range finding equipment into this secured area?  According to others who work in security industry for the government, the area 1000 yards in to the stage should have been secured, some other security folks stated it should be 2000 meters, so how did Thomas Matthew Crooks know where the stage was going to be places and where the president would be speaking prior to event, so he could setup his plan to kill Former President Donald J. Trump?

  • UPDATED ON July 16, 2024 @ 5:00pm PDT:  We just found out from Secret Service updates, that Thomas Matthew Crooks had brought in a range-finder into the rally and was asked about it by authorities at the site.  The Secret Service were supposedly watching Thomas Crooks after they let him in, but for some reason they lost track of the 20 year old.  This was a definite sign that Crooks was preparing to do something with a weapon, like a rifle.  So why did the Secret Service at this point stop this man from entering the Farm ground premises and do a butt-hole check on the guy?

  • How did this guy bring in a 5 foot ladder, so he could crawl up the side of the building?  This is unbelievable!  Who was in charge of the security at this site?  Even the United States Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle conceded that Thomas Crooks had been dubbed a "potential person of suspicion" before the assassination attempt, because they found a range-detector on his persons at the event.  @TeaPartier_Al says, he has been to concerts and has been screened way better than this.  In fact, some concerts require you to have clear bags to put your personal items in, just to enter the venue, so they can be checked easily.  It sounds like to us, this kid may have been able to drive a M-1 tank into the venue loaded with shells and no one would have said a word to him.

  • How did Thomas Matthew Crooks know what building to be able to get up on, undetected?

  • How did Thomas Matthew Crooks know that this building's roof was not secured by law enforcement, in order to take a shot at the former president of the United States?

  • All these questions need to be answered!

Thomas Crooks having a range-finder on his person at an election rally, right way tells me this person has a rifle and they are aware of how to sight-in a rifle's distance and probable declination of angle.  This was a 'RED WARNING LIGHT and SIREN' and the man should have stopped, detained, and questioned by law enforcement.

Several days has gone by after the assassination attempt on the former president, we are starting to hear more and more disturbing details and trouble things about the security at this event, which is a dead give away that something rotten was going on at Butler Farm.  It's really starting to look more and more like an inside job.  We at Peer Review Politics are starting to think that DEI, really means DIE as its just spelled incorrectly.

What the Fake News told us.

The media and the women of the show called 'The VIEW' on ABC, claimed that the shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks was a Republican, but according to records Crooks donated money to ActBlue, which is part of the Democrat Party (DNC).

The media also told us there were multiple shooters and one of the shooter's was a Chinese National.  Since then several networks stated that Donald Trump fell on stage, one stated he was scared of the fireworks and thought it was gun fire, as well as a bunch of other misinformation that they have been pushing on the public.

Analyzing what we think went wrong.

Note that we are not trying to be armchair theorist here, after the fact, but someone needs to analyze what the heck went wrong here, because our adversaries are watching what the hell happened here.  The question here is did we not have enough law enforcement officers to secure the ground of the site?  Would have it helped to have drones flying around on the Farm grounds and/or would other types of electronic monitoring equipment needed to be present on site, (Cameras, Motion Detection, and other types of security equipment)?

We really need to figure out what could have been done better and not repeat these same mistakes in the future as our president, former president's, and their families as well as other important dignitary lives depend on it.

Other unnamed security and sniper people who worked in security, law enforcement, and military have opined openly on this attempted assassination, people like Ex-UFC star and former American sniper, Tim Kennedy, have state what they think.  On unnamed sources, stated the Secret Service should have not be allowing people to get within the 1000 yard perimeter of a former president without those person being screened and checked.  Tim Kennedy said the perimeter should be 2000 meters.

In either case, this shooter used a 5 foot ladder he bought and brought to the site, then was bear-climbing up the side of a building on to the roof using this 5-foot ladder, while carrying a rifle, according to multiple witness accounts.  This is the same parking lot and building that was being used as a staging area for law enforcement for this event.  It gets much worse, all while patrons on the ground were watching this guy shimmy across the roof and reported it (screaming) to the police and secret service to get someone to help for nearly or roughly two minutes, before the shooter had shot at the former president of the United States.  One witness who spoke to the BBC reporter, stated law enforcement was just running around on the ground doing nothing.  We could imagine what this look like, probably like bunch of chickens running around with their heads chopped off.

Tim Kennedy stated on TMZ, "Heads need to roll at the Secret Service."  Other unnamed security folks we spoke with online, said the same.

Also, there where either, two police officers or the Secret Service snipers, on top of the roof of a building behind the stage, which former president was speaking on.  This roof top was in video camera view.  A video taken appears to show that these law enforcement officials had the sniper in their sites with their rifles, but it appeared that they did not to take the shot when they could, instead it appeared that they waited for the shooter to shoot first, before returning fire and killing the want-to-be assassin.

We have a lot more questions about how this all happened.  We will do more updates on pictures, videos, and evidence within this story.  As information comes available, we will provide more updates as we get more applicable information on this shooting.

Classified Documents Case Against Trump has been Dismissed

Picture of U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon

Fort Pierce, Florida: 🚨 BREAKING 🚨 NEWS:

Peer Reviewed Politics: On July 15, 2024, U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon’s ruled in 93-page document that Special Counsel Jack Smith was improperly appointed by the DOJ and so the court has rightfully dismissed the case against Former President Trump.

According to the courts legal ruling, the order granting dismissal cites that Special Counsel Jack Smith’s appointment was in violation of the Appointments Clause of the United States Constitution.  Also under the U.S. Constitution, Article II § 2, clause 2, Special Counsel Jack Smith’s use of a permanent indefinite appropriation violates the Appropriations Clause, U.S. Constitution, Article I § 9, clause 7.  The court noted that court did not need to address the proper remedy for that funding violation given the dismissal on Appointments Clause grounds.

The ruling outlined, the first challenge to Jack Smith's appointment under the Appointments Clause, which provides the exclusive means for appointing “Officers of the United States,” (SEE Article II, § 2, cl. 2.)  The Appointments Clause sets as a default rule that all “Officers of the United States” whether “inferior” or “principal” must be appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

In the second challenge, rooted in the Appropriations Clause, also prohibits any money from being “drawn from the Treasury” unless such funding has been appropriated by an act of Congress under Article I § 9, clause 7, (“No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law. . . .”).  According to the ruling DOJ just can't appropriate money on its own.  The House of Representatives hold the purse for this type of funding.

On June 28, 2024, the Supreme Court ruled against decades of of ambiguous federal regulatory law by bureaucracies, making it far more difficult for federal agencies to issue rules, regulations, and try to appropriate money for themselves without an act of congress.  According to Chief Justice Roberts, this was pointed out in a famous 1803 decision of Marbury v. Madison, whereas Chief Justice Roberts stated it means that courts, not agencies, decide what the law is, and if Congress wants to do something different, it should say so explicitly.

In Judge Cannon's ruling she stated, "Both the Appointments and Appropriations challenges as framed in the Motion raise the following threshold question: is there a statute in the United States Code that authorizes the appointment of Special Counsel Smith to conduct this prosecution?  After careful study of this seminal issue, the answer is no.  None of the statutes cited as legal authority for the appointment, (SEE 28 U.S.C. §§ 509, 510, 515, 533) gives the Attorney General broad inferior-officer appointing power or bestows upon him the right to appoint a federal officer with the kind of prosecutorial power wielded by Special Counsel Smith.  Nor do the Special Counsel’s strained statutory arguments, appeals to inconsistent history, or reliance on out-of-circuit authority persuade otherwise.

Looking at the law and the past arguments before the Supreme Court, including the most recent argument, Judge Cannon is on sound ground in her ruling in this case, and its very unlikely that an appeal by the government would be successful, if Judge Cannon ruling was challenged by the government.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Declares Voter Fraud is Real.

Harris County, TX: BREAKING NEWS:

Peer Reviewed Politics: On June 15, 2024, the 3-term Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared that "Voter fraud is real, especially in Houston." Governor Abbott goes on to say in a post on X.com, “The court has found that 1,430 illegal votes were cast in the race for the 180th District Court.” The Governor continued to state, "We must end voter fraud."

Most folks know that voter fraud is becoming a serious issue in our elections, but the courts have been unlikely to involve themselves in these disputes and the Democrat party knows this.  Election integrity and security has been at the forefront after the 2020 election.  This mainly do to Former President Trump and his administration legally contesting the 2020 election.  Many of lapdog media, (AKA Main Stream Media) and their associates bark about that there is no widespread voter fraud going on in our elections, but yet election workers come forward and audits show different.  Even when workers come forward or audits prove otherwise, the courts are still unlikely to hear these cases.

In this case, Tami Pierce who contested the 449-vote loss to an incumbent Democrat DaSean A. Jones in January 2023, was able to ge the court to listen, but the case was delayed for nearly a year by a motion to dismiss filed by the incumbent Judge Jones in the 180th District Court judicial race.   After an lengthy appeal, which was filed by Jones in the Court of Appeals For the First District of Texas asking for Motion to Dismiss Tami Pierce's' lawsuit, whereas the District court refused to dismiss her complaint.

On November 16, 2023, the Court of Appeals Justices Goodman, Rivas-Molloy, and Amparo Guerra, which signed the courts opinion, found in favor of Tami Pierce, affirming the trial court’s order denying Jones’s TCPA motion to dismiss and the Appeals Court also affirmed the trial court’s finding that Pierce was also entitled to attorney’s fees and costs, because Jones’s motion was frivolous.

Docket from the Court of Appeals

On Wednesday, May 15, 2024, the District Court of Harris County, Texas Judge David Peeples issued a Judgment in the Election Contest in favor of Tami Pierce, ruling that the true outcome of the election could not be determined and he ordered a new election.

According to the judgment: The court had found there were 1430 illegal votes, which were cast in the race for the 180th District Court, and it was not realistic or feasible to determine which candidate had received those votes.  The court has found that a net margin of 321 votes (1146 to 825) were cast for Jones over Pierce in the extended one hour of voting on Election Day, which the court has found resulted from an official mistake by the Harris County Elections Administration Office.

The court also entered a monetary damage judgment against Jones and ordered him to pay Tami Pierce $66,000 in attorney’s fees and court costs.

Judge Merchan Contacts Former President Trump's Defense Team Over Letter.

Picture of richter hammer

New York: BREAKING NEWS:

Peer Reviewed Politics: Judge Merchan the Judge who presided over Former President Trump's Trial in the Stormy Daniel's hush money case in New York was alerted to a Facebook post done by a cousin of a juror.

On May 29, 2024, the day before Trump's conviction in New York, a cousin of a juror posted inside information on Facebook about the hush money trial, that Former President Trump was going to be convicted, prior to the jurors declaring Former President Trump guilty the very next day.  The cousin of the juror in their post, then thanked everyone for their hard work getting Trump convicted.

This is juror misconduct, plain and simple!  Jurors are not allowed to discuss a cases with their families or the public, prior to the judgment of a defendant.  Jurors also are not allowed to watch the news either, so the juror doesn't become compromised.

This conviction will likely be vacated, and it should end in a mistrial.  The question is, will Judge Merchan do the right thing, here?  Judge Merchan did sent this letter to Team Trump and the prosecutor's office.  It should be highly likely that this conviction will be vacated at this point.

Prior to this trial of Former President Donald J. Trump, the attorneys for the Former President had warned Judge Merchan that the Former President would not get a fair trial by a jury in the location were Trump's trial was being held in New York.  This is the reason Trump's attorneys had asked for a change of venue.

Its in Peer Review Politic's opinion, that Judge Merchan should have known better when he was asked by the attorneys for the defendant for a new venue, because these attorneys knew Former President Trump would not get a fair trial in an area with 95% Democrat voters.

Don't You Know that Inflation is UP, UP, UP for April 2024?

Picture of the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers

Washington, DC: Consumer Price Index – April 2024 News Release

“Don't you know the inflation rate is going up, up, up, up, up?”

Shadoobie, Shattered...

"To live in this country you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough, tough, tough."

Shadoobie, Shattered,
Shadoobie, Shattered, Shattered.

"We've got Democrats on the west side, Republican uptown."

Shadoobie, Shattered...

"What a mess, this country is in tatters, I've been shattered."

Shadoobie, Shattered.

"My brain's been battered, they splattered Trump all over Manhattan."

Shadoobie, Shattered...

Well, that's how we feel after seeing this Consumer Price Index report for April 2024.  Why are we saying this?  The inflation rate is up again for April 2024.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statics, the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) has increased again, this time another 0.3 percent in April of 2024, after rising 0.4 percent in March of 2024.

In the last 12 months, all the items index have increased 3.4 percent before the seasonal adjustment.  The CPI index for shelter and gasoline rose in April 2024, no surprise here if you have a roof over your head and drive to work and/or the store to buy necessities.  These two indexes combined, contributed to over seventy percent of the monthly increase in the index for all items according the blss.gov.

The energy cost index rose another 1.1 percent over the month.  The only index which was virtually unchanged in April of 2024, was the food index.  To break this down more so you real can understand the food index, your food at home index declined 0.2 percent but its still up, while your food away from home has rose another 0.3 percent over the month, which in effect leaves the index unchanged pretty much.  If you want to be technical, its up 0.1 percent if you eat out.

The index for all items, less food and energy, rose again, this time 0.3 percent for April 2024, after rising 0.4 percent in each of the 3 preceding months.  If you think inflation is less in this report, yes only less than the previous months, there is still inflation that's being added to the previous month's inflation and the previous years of high inflation under the Biden Administration, so no, there has not been any de-inflation.  Wages are just not keeping up with the rise in inflation, either.

The indexes that have increased in April 2024 are "Shelter, Motor Vehicle Insurance, Home Insurance, Medical Care, Apparel, and Personal Care items."  While inflation for used cars, trucks, new household furnishings and operations, and new vehicles were among those items that seen decreases in inflation over the month, but again there is no de-inflation as inflation is still going up, up, and up.

Picture of a Graph Showing the One Month Percentage Change in the CPI for All Urban Consumers

The items in consumer price index rose 3.4 percent for the 12 months ending April, which is a smaller increase than the 3.5 percent increase for the 12 months ending March, but remember, this is not de-inflation, it's still an increase in inflation, just not as much.

All items, less the food and energy index, again rose 3.6 percent over the last 12 months.  Yes, the fed said it increased again.  The energy index also increased 2.6 percent for the 12 months ending in April or 2024.  The food index too increased 2.2 percent over the last year.

We've included a chart here to view, noting nothing is going negative in the inflation rate.  The interest rate continues to climb, month after month, unlike your wages...

Yes, Shadoobie, Shattered,

How and why the United States is being Invaded.
The Answers To Your Questions Are Here in This Documentary.

Picture of Epoch Time Weapons of Mass Migration Documentary
Documentary Video Credit: Joshua Philipp / Epoch Times

Peer Reviewed Politics: This documentary was released by the Epoch Times on May 09, 2024 and the Epoch Times has asked viewers like us to publish a link to their documentary, which is called Weapons of Mass Migration.

We here at Peer Reviewed Politics have watched and reviewed this documentary and we can actually verify what is being said within this documentary as being true.  In the past, we have did articles and posted material proof who is facilitating this illegal immigration.  We provided information and pictures that we received which shows aliens being paid to mass migrate to the United States.  In our articles we showed how the United Nations and the Red Cross were involved in helping these aliens to migrate illegally into the United States.

According to this Epoch Times, this documentary and the special investigation report, which was done by Joshua Philipp's dug way deeper into this mass illegal immigration and it blows the doors off this scheme and names the people who had started this program in 2016.  This scheme was shut down by former President Donald Trump after becoming the President of the United States.  This illegal migration scheme was then reactivated after former President Trump had left office.

After Joe Biden and his lackeys in the Biden administration took control of the White House in 2021, the Biden Administration reactivated the illegal mass migration scheme after ending former President Trump's executive orders on illegal immigration as well as stopping the building of the Wall along the Southern border.  Today, the Biden administration is now trying to claim and blame former President Trump for the current illegal immigration problems that have gotten out of control.  This is not former President Trump's fault, its the Biden Administration who is funding the UN and these NGO's.

The Biden Administration made several executive orders on February 02, 2021, which ended former President Trump's 2018 "zero tolerance" policy on prosecuting illegal border crossings and to seek unification of parents with children detained at the border.  Biden also signed an executive order that requested a comprehensive review Trump-era immigration policies too.  Biden signed these executive orders not even two full weeks after Joe Biden was sworn into office as President of the United States. On top of this, President Biden signed 25 other executive orders on immigration since taking office on January 20, 2021, which also included orders to halt the construction of Trump’s border wall.

In this documentary, the special investigation reporting by Joshua Philipp's is top of the line and it not only shows how all this being done, but who is involved too, and the reason why it's being done.  The ultimate goal here we believe is to destroy the United States.

This is all being funded by the Biden Administration and your tax dollars.  Documents show that $1.3 billion in tax dollars was given to the United Nations and the Red Cross by the Biden Administration.  The question here is how and where did the Biden Administration get this money from to pay these NGO's?

We reported in our past articles that the United Nations and Red Cross were the ones operating this illegal UN / NGO program against the United States.  According to the Joshua Philipp's the Chinese are now getting involved in this illegal migration too.  According to the FBI, they are extremely worried about what is going on at the border, but yet nothing is being done by our government to curtail this illegal game.

If we as a nation are going to try to resolve this problem, then we are going to need to find the people responsible in the United Nations and in the United States.  We then must put them in prison for fraudulent migration, invasion, and possible war crimes against the United States and Panama.

We also are not sure why the House of Representatives is providing the funding of this Biden program or any other type of funding to the United Nations either, knowing that money is being paid to these illegal aliens by these NGO's.  The House of Representatives are the responsible entity for the pocket book of spending in this country, whereas our country is somehow funding these NGO's using our taxpayer dollars to facilitate this illegal invasion in to the United States and the illegal migration that is pouring through Panama too.

Under the Constitution, the Biden Administration does not have the authority allow any type migration into the United States, but yet this administration is illegally using our tax payer money and breaking Federal Law to do this.  We are not sure why Biden is not being impeached by the House and Senate and why the people in this administration are not being investigated and arrested by the FBI for breaking Federal Law.  The funny thing here is the FBI had no problem investigating former President Trump for a fake foriegn dossier.

We ask that you please share this documentary with your family and friends.  We also ask that you call your representatives and asked them to take action to end our relationship with the United Nations.  Your voice and vote will matter this November 2024, more than it ever did in your lifetime.  It's time to clean out the communists party (Democrats and Republicans in Name Only) out of our government, which has infiltrated our government using our election system.

Federal Judge Allows Several Illegal Aliens to File Lawsuit Against Transportation Company Who Transported Aliens to Martha’s Vineyard.

Peer Reviewed Politics: On Tuesday, April 2, 2024, a U.S. District Federal judge in Boston indicated that several illegal aliens who entered the United States of America illegally could file a lawsuit against a transportation company who transported them to Martha’s Vineyard from Texas, whereas Martha’s Vineyard and other leftist Cities have claimed that they are a "sanctuary cities."

Martha’s Vineyard deported these illegal aliens to Joint Base Cape Cod after a few days of being at Martha's Vineyard.  The locals on the tiny island, off the coast of Massachusetts, provided the illegal aliens housing at a church in Martha's Vineyard, medical assistance and supplies, food, and then later legal assistance, which brought about this lawsuit.

Civil Action No. 22-cv-11550-ADB

The Biden Administration for the last several years has not been properly following federal laws enacted by congress on illegal's entering into the United States.  The Biden Administration and Homeland Security are not using the border patrol to deport those who entered into the United States illegally without properly going through a port of entry and claiming and applying to be processed as a migrant or refugee.  The Biden Administration and Homeland Security has been allowing 10's of millions of illegal aliens to enter the United States and these border States are being overwhelmed by Biden's catch and release program, which the Biden Administration and Homeland Security has been forcing the U.S. border patrol to participate in.

Illegal Aliens on border asking to come into the USA.

Also, the border States are not being allowed by the Biden Administration to protect their States’s from this invasion by allowing the State's to deport the illegal aliens, since the Federal Government is not doing their fiduciary duties to protect the border as required by law.  States like Texas and Florida are being overwhelmed by 10’s of millions of people a year pouring across the border illegally, since former President Trump left office.  The Biden Administration has been allowing the border to remain wide open by dismantling former President Trump executive orders and also not following the federal laws passed by congress to properly process and deport illegal aliens who are not qualified to remain in the United States under law.  Instead, the Biden Administration is using the border patrol to process and release illegal aliens in to the country in these States along the border, instead of adjudicating the illegal aliens and then deporting those who don't have a viable reason to seek legal help or residence here in the United States.

These border States, which have been invaded by millions of illegal aliens from over 110 different countries, have decided to spread the invasion of these illegal aliens in to other Democrat cities who claim that they are sanctuary cities, whereas the U.S Border Patrol in these border States are not being allowed by the Biden Administration to process and deport these illegal individuals.

The complaint filed in the federal court seems to be moot as these illegal aliens under law don’t have a right to file a lawsuit, because their hands are not clean as they entered into the United States illegally.  Since the Biden Administration is unilaterally allowing these illegal aliens to stay in the United States without Constitutional authority, these aliens were flown out of Texas to Martha's Vineyard on September 14, 2022 in order to reduce the amount of illegal aliens who are burdening these border States with astronomical cost to feed, house, and provide medical assistance to them.

After the complaint was filed in Federal Court by three illegal aliens from Venezuela and a immigrant rights group, U.S. District Judge Allison Burrough from Massachusetts was appointed to the case.  According to legal records, U.S. District Judge is Allison Burrough use to be partner at the law firm of Nutter McClennen & Fish, LLP before she was nominated and appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama.  Judge Allison Burrough stated in her order that the lawsuit filed by these illegal aliens and this immigrant rights group may proceed in the federal court.

This lawsuit named Vertol Systems Company, which is a Florida air transport company as the defendant, whereas the transport bill was paid for by the State of Florida.  The lawsuit also outlined other defendants in the complaint too, which included Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida Secretary of Transportation Jared Perdue, Florida Public Safety Czar Lawrence Keefe, Florida Chief of Staff to the Governor James Uthmeier, and the Florida Department of Transportation’s James Montgomerie and Perla Huerta.

According to U.S. District Judge Allison Burrough’s order it allows the complaint to proceed against Vertol Systems Company, but the Judge did dismiss without prejudice, out of jurisdictional concerns, claims against Gov. DeSantis and the other defendants of the State of Florida.  The complaint identified these three illegal aliens as Yanet Doe, Pablo Doe and Jesus Doe.  The last names of the illegal aliens where not used and their last names were changed to Doe for some reason.  It’s likely our government and the court probably doesn’t even know or have the real names of these illegal aliens as most of these aliens dump their ID’s at the border in Mexico just before crossing into the United States illegally, then using common Spanish last names like Garcia, Rodriguez, Lopez, Cruz, Gonzalez or etc..  These Spanish names are very common names like Smith, Lee, Brown, Chen, Wang, Li, Wong, and other types of well known names which are used around the globe.  These names are almost impossible to really ID the person without doing finger printing or checking their DNA.

What was extremely strange about this order is that Judge Burroughs admonished the defendant(s) by saying, "Vertol and the other Defendants here were not legitimately enforcing any immigration laws," and "the Court sees no legitimate purpose for rounding up highly vulnerable individuals on false pretences and publicly injecting them into a divisive national debate."

What Judge Burroughs seems to forget or doesn’t understand is that these petitioners must come forward with clean hands, if they are planning to file a complaint in court.  Being here illegally is not really coming before the court with clean hands, is it?

The Courts in the past have univocally have held that not coming forward with clean hand disentitle's the petitioner of discretionary relief under Article 226/227 of the Constitution.  The purpose of the clean hands doctrine is to prevent a party from obtaining relief when a party’s wrongful conduct has made it such that granting the relief would be against equity and good conscience as cited in case law, SEE Colby Furniture Company, Inc. v. Belinda J. Overton

While we are on the subject of the constitution, the Judge should also understand that the constitution is wrote only for citizens, those legally naturalized, and legal non-citizens (Green Card Holders) in the United States, so these illegal aliens are not really entitled to make any claim against the defendants as they broke the law and should have never been here in the first place and the Biden Administration doesn't have the authority to allow them to stay.

Under federal law, foreign nationals are generally entitled to sue in U.S. federal courts, if the case involves a federal question or if there is diversity of citizenship between the parties.  Diversity of citizenship means that the plaintiff and defendant are citizens of different states or countries and the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000 and also has standing to sue in a court.

These illegal aliens’ rights to a due process hearing were not denied by the defendant(s), as the defendant Vertol has no control over the deportation of aliens as they are not a federal entity, so these illegal aliens’ rights to due process have not been affected in anyway whatsoever by the defendant Vertol or the other defendants.

Legal non-citizens can initiate legal proceedings in federal court if their case falls under the federal court's subject matter jurisdiction and have standing to sue, but illegal non-citizens don’t have any standing to sue as they are not legal to be in the United States (hence illegal alien), if they did not legally pass through a port of entry.

States have the right to protect their sovereignty from invasion, if the federal government fails to do their job of protecting the border.  Article 4 Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.  This article was enacted to guarantee each state of the union is protected against invasion by foreign nations, revolutionary forces, drug cartels and illegal immigration.  The President of the United State just can’t unilaterally change the law by an executive order, as only congress has the plenary powers over immigration under its enumerated powers of Article I, Section 8, Clause 18:

  • [The Congress shall have Power . . . ] To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

Also should be noted is the “Necessary and Proper Clause”,

  • Congress’s powers include not only those expressly listed, but also the authority to use all means necessary and proper for executing those express powers.

The President’s job is to enforce the law that congress enacts and that is it.  The courts don’t write laws either, their job is to interpret the law how congress wrote it.  What it appears this federal judge maybe doing to the defendant is the same thing that the New York judge did to Trump by fining him $345 million dollars.  If so, this would be nothing short of law fare, which would only being done to hurt the defendant(s) by damaging or de-legitimizing them, deterring them of their legal rights, and putting them out of business as a transport company.  Why this is being done is to signal to other companies and individuals, if you get involved with former President Donald Trump or laws we don't like, we will take you out.

Our opinion here is we believe the Biden Administration and the DNC are planning on using these illegal aliens to vote in the next election using mail in ballots like 2020 election.  Congress must enforce the voting act within the Constitution and require voters to report in person and provide their identification in order to vote, which proves their age and that the person is a citizen of the United States or has been naturalized by law.  According to the Constitution, voting can only really only be done in person with ID, otherwise we are going to have another fraudulent election with massive mail fraud.

Everyone knows that Biden did not get 80 million plus votes in the last general election as not that many people vote in elections.  Biden in the past had run three different times for President and was badly beaten all three times, whereas Joe Biden has never made it into the general election.  To top it off, to say Biden got more votes than Barack Obama was the biggest dead give away that cheating was going on in the 2020 election.

Interview Transcript of James Brian Biden in Regards to the Impeachment Inquiry of President Joe Biden.

Picture of President Joe Biden and James Biden

Peer Reviewed Politics: According to the Committee on Oversight and Accountability press release, Chairman James Comer (R-KY.) and House Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) released the transcript of the committees’ transcribed interview with James Biden on February 21, 2024, which lasted about eight hours and 3 minutes.  This transcript is 224 pages and can be found here.

In the transcript, there are many names which were redacted for the Committee on the Judiciary and for the Committee on Oversight and Accountability within the transcript.

Mr. Biden was represented by counsel Paul Fishman and David Hibey from the firm, Arnold and Porter.  Mr Biden started the interview by answering questions about his career.  Mr. Biden stated that he was a few credits short of graduating from the University of Delaware.  Mr. Biden stated that he has had a securities license, a real estate license, and currently has an insurance license.  Mr. Biden further elaborated that he has a company which provides worksite benefits to major institutions on behalf of employees in 20 states.  Mr. Biden stated that he is licensed in 50 states and has employees which all are on W-2 and work directly for Mr. Bidens' company.  Mr. Biden stated that the employees are compensated with bonuses and things like that. 

Mr. Fishman asked the General Counsel how far back does he want James Biden to go back.  The General Counsel then offered to run through some of the companies.  The General Counsel stated that he thought it would be helpful to talk about some of the companies that are going to be brought up during the interview.

Some of the companies that the General Counsel mentions is Lion Hall Group, whereas James Biden stated the company was formed after he got married, which James Biden believed it was in 1997. James Biden indicated that his wife was Sara Jones Biden and she was his partner.  James Biden was asked about the corporate address of his business and he stated it was his residence.  The general counsel asked what was his wife role in the company and Mr. Biden answered administration and bookkeeping.

The next company the General Counsel asked about was the JBBSR, Inc.  The counsel asked if he owned it and James Biden replied, "Yes".  James Biden elaborated that the company was formed by Sara Biden with James Biden agreeing with it and Mr. Biden stated he did not know if it was still in business.  James Biden then stated that it was setup as a vehicle where his wife and he could...  At this point he jumps to it was an LLC and it was setup for that reason.  James Biden stated that the company was used very little.  The general counsel states he wants to show James Biden an exhibit which was marked as No. 2 and he wanted James Biden to view it.

The general counsel the asked Mr. Biden what the last sentence in the second paragraph read.  Mr. Biden read back to the general counsel that the purpose of the Corporation is to engage in lawful or lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the General Corporation Law under the State of Delaware.  The General Counsel then asks James Biden about the registered agent name at James Biden address.  Mr. Biden replies that the name of the register agent was Monzack Murkowsky and McLaughlin and Brower, P.A.  The General Counsel then states that on page 2 it is signed by Monzack Murkowsky.

This right here appears to be an issue, because being a registered agent at this address, which the address of James Biden sound a bit shady.  The General Counsel asks James Biden, what kind of service and businesses did the Lion Hall Group provide?  James Biden replied Consulting in many different areas.  James Biden states the list is incorporated in the documents that he provided the general counsel and the Oversight Committee.  Mr. Biden was asked by the general counsel if he was a registered lobbyist and Mr. Biden clearly said, "No, Sir." Mr. Biden then was asked if he was ever been a registered lobbyist, by the general counsel.  Mr. Biden stated, "Never."

This again is an issue and also its a requirement when doing business as a lobbyist, under federal law under Section 4 of the Act (2 U.S.C. § 1603) to be registered.  Why James Biden or Hunter did not know this when James' brother and Robert Hunters' dad was a U.S. Senator and Vice President of the United States is beyond belief.

The general counsel then asks about another business (BG Equity Partners) that James Biden held with Hunter Biden. The General Counsel then asks about Robert Hunter Biden being President and James Biden as being Vice President in BG Equity Partners with in another exhibit label as No.3.  The General Counsel asked if James Biden worked in this company dating back to 2009.  James Biden was asked if he had a business with Hunter Biden predating 2009.  James Biden stated that he could not recall. The General Counsel then asks what type of business/services did Hunter and he perform?  James Biden stated consulting and giving advise to Hunter Biden, who is his nephew, and then went on to elaborate that Hunter valued his judgment and expertise.

The General Counsel then asked about another business (Owasko PC) that Hunter Biden owned and which James Biden consulted in.  The General Counsel asked what was Owasko PC and James Biden replied, "It was a LL -- a PC, that Hunter had formed and that he asked me to join him in several different ventures."

The General Counsel stated he would like to turn to a couple of those joint ventures that James Biden was involved with.  The General Counsel asked about CEFC Business Associates and Americore. The General Counsel asked what was CEFC and James Biden stated it was privately held Chinese Energy company. The General Counsel asked what was James Biden's role in CEFC.  James Biden stated, "Sourcing business opportunities for them."  Representative Gaetz interjected, "When you say CEFC is privately held Chinese company, privately held by who?"  James Biden answered by the Chairman of CEFC, and after being further questioned about being privately held, James Biden replied that the company was not affiliated with the Chinese Government.  Mr. Gaetz quickly responded, "And how do you know that?"  James Biden answered, "From Hunter and from the papers that were presented to me."  Mr. Gaetz followed up asking, "Which papers were those?"  James Biden then stated he could not recall, but you know, several papers along the way.  James Biden then stated, "When I first joined, there was no way that Hunter would have brought me into a situation dealing with the Chinese Government"

We here at Peer Reviewed Politics find this all a bit unbelievable, because Hunter was juiced up on drugs, which just shows he was not of sound mind.  It's not like he was just only smoking Marijuana or eating edibles.  These were chemical mind alternating drugs.

Mr. Gaetz then asked, if it was James Biden conclusion that CEFC was not connected to the Chinese government was based on what people told him, writings he reviewed, or both.  James Biden started to beat around the bush, but then finally admitting it was both.  Mr. Gaetz asked about the nature of the documents, if these were corporate governance documents, bylaws, letters, or receipts.  The James Biden said something really strange, he stated, "I really didn't go it to details.  James Biden stated that Hunter told him it was a private company. Then he state you know the nature of my nephew. He's a Yale Law graduate and had, you know, done due diligence.  It wasn't my place to do it.  Hunter assured me it was not affiliated with the Chinese Government and it was a private company."

The question here is why would it not be his place to ask this question if he is doing consulting?  This seems so, scripted if you ask us here at Peer Reviewed Politics.  It just doesn't make sense, if Hunter is a graduate of Yale Law or Georgetown Law school, he should have known he needs to register as a lobbyist, if he is deal with foreign entities.

Mr, Gaetz asked why James Biden relied so heavily on this.  James Biden claimed because Hunter was an attorney and that he had graduated from Georgetown, he thinks.  James Biden went on to say that Hunter had transferred to Yale law school and that he was familiar with the appropriate documentation that was needed to verify that it was a private company, but yet not familiar with lobbyist laws.  James Biden also previously said he did not go into the details, but yet he claims Hunter was familiar with the appropriate documentation that was needed to verify it was a private.  Our question is which is it, James? You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Mr. Gaetz asked James Biden, if he knew that Hunter had meetings at the home of the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, too.  James Biden stated, "No."

The Oversight Committee was really starting to trip up James Biden.  The General Counsel then asked about IRS agent who had prepare a memo detailing James Bidens statements.  The General Counsel James Biden to direct his attention to page 7 of 13, paragraph 27(b), stating that it gets to Representative Gaetz's question.  The General Counsel stated, "In the memo the agent wrote, James B -- which I believe is a reference to you -- noted that RHB -- which I understand is a reference to Hunter Biden -- portrayed CEFC to him as Chairman Ye was a protégé of President Xi."  James Biden stated that it was term of art. Mr. Biden continued to state, "I mean, it was not specifically.  You know, that he was held in high esteem by many in China.  I was alleged -- it was alleged by Hunter to me and I, obviously, I said that, and that's my recollection."  The General Counsel said, "So Hunter Biden did refer to Chairman Ye -- who is Chairman Ye Jianming -- as protégé of President Xi then."  James Biden then said, "He was a very successful young businessman, and I think that he was recognized as an up-and-comer, and he had a very profitable, very successful business."

Again, it sounds like James Biden knew a lot about this Chinese businessman, but yet he told Representative Gaetz that the company was not affiliated with the Chinese Government, but he understood Chairman Ye being successful, a protégé of President Xi, and that he was a Chairman, which is quite common title in a government position in China.  Sorry, but things just don't add up in just the 23 pages that we discuss here, it get worse.  Its obviously that James Biden is lying, based on his answers in his testimony so far.

Its definitely worth the read to learn more about how this family was using the Biden name to do consulting in order make big money.  The question is how much information and/or classified information did the Bidens sell about our country to countries like China?  Countries like China paid for something that was of use to them and we are sure it wasn't for information of how much ice cream President Joe Biden eats.  What is scary, is a lot of Chinese military aircraft and other military equipment look exactly like ours.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Begging for Cash from Congress...


Video Credit: C-Span

Peer Reviewed Politics: On Tuesday, October 31, 2023, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Director of the National Counterterrorism Center on testify on threats to the United States.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) opened with talking about the Church Committee, which was over 50 years ago, did its final report revealing decades of widespread abuses by federal government Intel agencies against United States Citizens.  Senator Paul said, "These powers of the federal government were suppose to be used to counter foriegn threats." Senator Rand Paul iterated that the purpose of the Church Committees years long investigation was to expose the intelligence agencies unlawful overreach into the private lives of Americans. Senator Paul continued to state the committee had hoped that its finding from 50 years ago would result in more transparency and accountability to ensure that these abuse never would occur again.

Senator Paul stated, "We sit here today. I feel our federal government is still undertaking many of the same tactics the Church Committee found to be unworthy of Democracy and occasionally reminiscent of totalitarian regimes." Paul continued, "Federal entities including the FBI and the DHS continue to operate in a manner that is outside the scope of their authorities, wasting taxpayer dollars and infringing on the rights of Americans." Senator Paul stated, "Earlier this month, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals found that Federal Agencies including the FBI and DHS likely violated the First Amendment, -- in fact, the judges said it was one of the worst if not the worst violation of the First Amendment in American history"

Paul stated that government agencies pushed social media companies to remove speech the government disagreed with regarding Covid-19, lock downs, vaccine efficacy, and the Hunter Biden laptop stories. Paul went on to say that the FBI, NDA and DHS regularly met with social media companies to pressure them to remove content that they said was disinformation, including posted accounts that were verifiably true.  In the Censorship of constitutionally protected speech, social media is just one example of the Executive branch actions in recent years weaponizing the federal government against its people.

The FBI continues to misuse its authority under section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Act, you would think we would be going after foreigners, but instead we're using the act to go after Americans, as was done in the George Floyd protest, Senator Paul said.

Senator Paul finished by saying, "American people deserve accountability from the federal government and congress cannot continue to abdicate its constitutional duty to conduct oversight.  As the Church Committee aptly pointed out, power must be checked and balanced, and the preservation of Liberty requires the restraint of laws.  Its our responsibility to ensure that the principles of the American Democracy endure and I hope my colleagues on both sides of the isle will work with me to do just that.

Witnesses from Homeland Security - Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, FBI Director - Christopher Wray, and Director of the National Counterterrorism Center - Christine Abizaid were sworn in to speak at this hearing.  Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was the first to speak to the committee.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated that in September that Homeland Security published threat assessment on the most direct pressing threats to the security of the United States, which he did not happen mention the threat of Hamas and a open border, but he has in the past labeled Make America Great Again and Conservative U.S. Citizens as being domestic threat's.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated at this hearing, that since their assessment had been released, "The world has changed." Hmmm, you got to wonder why?  Maybe an open border and a weak President are factors why the world has changed.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas went on to say, "Hamas terrorist horrifically attacked thousands of innocent men, women, and children in Israel on October 7.  Brutally murdering, wounding, and taking hostages of all ages."

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas then stated a bunch of garbage, "We've responded to an increase in threats against Jewish, Muslim, and Arab Americans communities and institutions across our county."  We here at Peer Reviewed Politics thought this statement made by Secretary Alejandro Mayorkaswas was definitely strange and insulting to our ally Israel and our citizens as the only threats we've seen to date on the news and social media is from radical students at U.S. colleges (both foreign and domestic students), Palestinian's, and some Muslims made toward Israelis, not Muslims, Arab Americans communities, and/or institutions.  We have yet to see any Jews or citizen threatening Palestinian's or Arab American's whatsoever.

It's really not that unusual to hear Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas lie about our border being secured, but to make false claims that Israelis and others are making threats against Palestinian's or Muslim's is just over the top and not true, whatsoever.  We are not sure what planet that Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas lives on, but its certainly not here on Earth.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas must have missed the 1400 plus people (men, women, children, and babies) that were brutally killed in Israel.  A country that is attacked like this, should always have the right to defend its self against those who are seeking to destroy it.

These terrorist psychopaths were so brutal that they actually cut the heads off innocent babies with shovels and stepped on the necks of innocent babies to break their necks.  We never heard any Jews say or doing such evil things to anyone, not alone children, so we're not sure of what Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas narrative is here, but we can say for sure that Mayorkas is only fanning the flames of war against innocent people, which were attacked in their country, just like he is currently doing with our border, put citizens at risk and having our citizen to take the law into their own hands, in order to protect their families, their homes, and livelihoods.

The history of the Jews and Judaism in the Land of Israel began in the 2nd millennium BCE, when Israelites emerged as an outgrowth of Southern Canaanites.  The Palestine government did not have a state, until 1947 when UN General Assembly adopted the Plan as Resolution 181 (II).

United Nations (UN) adopted a Partition Plan for Mandatory Palestine, whereas the U.N. recommended the creation of independent Arab and Jewish states and an internationalized Jerusalem.  Immediately after the United Nations General Assembly adopted the plan as Resolution 181, a civil war broke out in Palestine, and according to the U.N., this plan was never implemented.

Scholars believe the name “Palestine” is derived from the name of the people (the Philistines) who occupied part of the region in the 12th century B.C., whereas Jews had occupied this land according the Hebrew Bible, as it contains narratives of ancient Israelites' presence in the land, including the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, which was established by King David and his descendants around 1000 B.C.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas goes on in his opening statement, speaking about the border which is his organization (DHS) is suppose to be protecting, stating today individuals radicalize to violence can terrorize using a vehicle or firearm, Mayorkas then goes on to state a transnational criminal organization (otherwise known as illegal aliens) who cross the border only needs to conceal 2.2lb of Fentanyl (highly potent synthetic piperidine opioid drug) in a commercial truck or passenger car, crossing through the land port of entry (Mayorkas fails to mention crossing at non-port of entry, like the open wall) to kill as many as a half a million people.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas then drones on about cyber attacks from countries like Russia, Iran, and Peoples Republic of China can use computer code to steal sensitive personal information, shut down critical infrastructure, and extort millions in ransom payments.

Lots of the chaos Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is talking about can and was voided, by sealing our border and not putting sensitive information on the public internet for the world to see, hack, or infect our government computer systems, but it seems Democrats like having chaos or like Rahm Emanuel of the Obama Administration once said, "Never let a crisis go to waste."

Closing the border and not allowing every Tom, Dick, and Harrett to make an asylum claim will protect U.S. and it's citizens from crime, drugs, rape, murder, and it will also protect foreign women and children from being trafficked.  It will also protect our government from other crimes and terrorist activities.

Removing sensitive government computer systems from a Public Wide Area Networks and keeping them on a Private Metropolitan Area Networks, which only connect to Private Government Wide Area Networks would reduced the risk of cyber attacks, hacking, viruses, ransom ware, and spyware our computers systems.  Yet, we have in this administration a bunch of idiots in charge of the border, which don't know the first thing about protecting the border, not alone having enough smarts understand cyber-security for a vast government computer system which is required by law under Federal Information Security Management Act, (FISMA) of 2002.

We're really surprised that Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is in charge of anything, as we would be scared to allow this man to dog sit, not alone run a vast government entity like Homeland Security.

People that could do this job well, are usually blacklisted or blackholed by government from doing this government work because of their politics not because they are unfit for the job.  It appears if you don't fit the narrative of being a blue, pink, or combination of haired liberal or foreigner, then you are banned or removed from these secure programs.  Again we believe its do to this famous Rahm Emanuel saying, "Never let a crisis go to waste."  If you have some one doing the job well, then things get fixed and it saves money.  Constituents are starting realize that government does not want to fix things, as this would reduce the debt, and would help keep spending under control.

To top it all off, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas then states his office wants to focus on two such means of critical urgent support.  What the heck does this statement mean in the first place?  It sounds like a word salad or something VP Harris would say.  If you haven't notice, there seems to be a lot of word salad in this administration, starting at the very top.  Anyhow, Secretary Mayorkas after providing this word salad to congress, it appears he is trying to get some salad dressing for his word salad from congress, because obviously Secretary Mayorkas doesn't like his salad dry.

Secretary Mayorkas asked congress continue to provide funding, which expired on July 28, 2023 for PDHS Authorities and Secretary Mayorkas doesn't want these authorities to lapse, which supposedly has to do with chemical facilities anti-terrorism standards.  Our understanding of this funding is CISA cannot enforce compliance with the CFATS regulations without this funding.   Secretary Mayorkas is claiming CISA is barred from inspecting 3000 high risk chemical facilities to identifying who is accessing them and whether they are stock piling dangerous chemicals.  So in other words, we can have an open border, but we need to worry about who is accessing chemical facilities and whether they are stock piling chemicals.  Something is seriously wrong with this line of thinking, because allowing an open border, you are enabling illegal alien terrorists in getting access to these companies in the United States that produce these dangerous chemicals.  Again, this administration following the famous Rahm Emanuel saying, "Never let a crisis go to waste."

Mayorkas then complains that the counter-drone authority will expire in November 18, 2023, and then continues to complain that DHS's countering of Weapons of Mass Destruction is expiring as well on December 21, 2023.

If this is not strange enough, then get this, this should really scare you young folks, Mayorkas states that key elements of the foreign intelligence surveillance act will expire on December 31, 2023.  Mayorkas claims that if the foreign intelligence surveillance expires, it will leave our country vulnerable to attacks supported by 'American Citizens' and would cripple our ability to identify and secure American Citizens who are the targets of such attacks.  Did Mayorkas just say that DHS is using the foreign intelligence surveillance act to monitor U.S. Citizens?  We ran the video over and over several times and yes, Mayorkas did say if the foreign intelligence surveillance act expires, DHS will not be able to monitor U.S. Citizens and it will leave our country vulnerable to attacks by 'American Citizens' on American Citizens, (Listen to the video starting at 15 minutes and 33 seconds)

We thought the name of this act is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which is suppose to monitor foreigner, but according to Secretary Mayorkas our government is monitoring citizens?  So, is this Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden Administrations line of thinking that having an open border doesn't put our country at risk by foreigner(s)?  Does Mayorkas and Biden Administration know that the name of this act is called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, not American Intelligence Surveillance Act?

Recently, we here at Peer Reviewed Politics just heard on November 01, 2023 that the U.S. Government has been also involved in censoring conservative news and citizens on social media.  So why is this administration afraid of our citizens?  Do we have foreign nationals and entities controlling our government, because of the open border?  We think inquiring U.S. Citizen minds would like to know this.

On top of all this BS, Secretary Mayorkas is stating that DHS needs critical supplemental Homeland Security Funding, which would be used to discourage and steam the impacts of historic acts of Immigration, but our research shows that the United States has been paying other countries to setup migration camps so illegal aliens can make their way to the United States from their home countries.  Secretary Mayorkas even has the nerve to state that he wants to use this Critical Supplemental Homeland Security Funding to accelerate work authorizations for eligible 'NON-CITIZENS'.  Secretary Mayorkas could careless about our disabled people, veterans, and our homeless citizens who don't get the needed help or support they need and paid taxes on, but for some reason people who illegally enter our country do need help.  If you think this is strange, just listen to the entire opening statement of Secretary Mayorkas.

Mayorkas also thinks that one of the authorizations is needed for fighting global warming, because you know climate change is responsible for extreme heat, wild fires, and devastating hurricanes and he claims that these are increasing in frequency and severity.  Mayorkas has no idea about whether.  We are not seeing any increases in frequency or severity of Hurricanes or extreme heat.  In fact, researchers said on Monday, June 27, 2022 that have constructed a clearer picture and have found that the frequency of the planet’s most devastating storms has decreased over the past century.  The study, which was published in the journal Nature Climate Change, said found that the annual number of global hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms — or tropical cyclones, declined by roughly 13% during the 20th century.  Not sure where Secretary Mayorkas is getting his information from, but he is definitely not using any scientific studies whatsoever.  Anyhow, even if Secretary Mayorkas office did get money for climate change, how is this money going to fix anything.  The GOP and Republicans need to do there research on these topics and then grill Secretary Mayorkas and others who are making these false statements to get funding.

Anyhow these are just a few things we found when listening to the hearing.  It seems the only politician not sleeping during the hearing was Rand Paul. In fact, his opening statement warned about what Secretary Mayorkas was about to say at this hearing.

Representative Matt Gaetz Claims McCarthy Had Sabotaged Speaker Nominees.

Peer Reviewed Politics: Representative Matt Gaetz claims that former Speaker Kevin McCarthy had sabotaged Rep. Steve Scalise, Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Tom Emmer, and the recently elected Speaker of the House Representative Mike Johnson.

According to Rep. Gaetz, Rep. Kevin McCarthy was working behind closed doors with other members of congress to get write in's to re-elect McCarthy to the Speaker of the House.  Gaetz stated that McCarthy had scuttled other members of congress who where nominated to the Speakership.

Gaetz was speaking with Rep Emmer on Sunday and told Emmer that he was not going to get there in the votes needed, but Rep. Emmer stated that he wanted a shot at it.  Gaetz asked Emmer after having a shot at it and if not elected that he does not drag this out for days and weeks and also not to play into what McCarthy was projecting as he being the only one who could govern the Republican conference.  Rep. Emmer agreed if he is not elected, it will be quick.  Gaetz then said, after Emmer took his shot at the Speaker seat and he failed to get enough votes, Rep. Emmer immediately withdrew his name.

Gaetz went on to say that Rep. Mark Molinaro, who is a moderate New York freshman Republican had stated instead of restarting this process over again, can we just take a non-binding poll where people would be at on who came in second to Rep. Emmer, which was Rep. Mike Johnson.

Gaetz stated that Rep. Elise Stefanik said that it would be against the rules do this.  Gaetz elaborates that Rep. Mark Molinaro brilliantly stated, "then I move for unanimous consent that the rules be waived in order to take a poll" on whether on not Rep. Mike Johnson could be the speaker nominee.

Gaetz says, "guess who objects to the motion?"  "None other that Rep. Kevin McCarthy."  Gaetz said, Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy stood up and objected to doing a roll call for Rep. Mike Johnson.

Rep. Matt Gaetz stated that believes Kevin McCarthy had been working all along to knife everyone who was nominated as Speaker, but Rep. McCarthy had not found a way to knife Rep. Mike Johnson yet.  Do to the objection by Rep. McCarthy this caused a three hour delay, candidates had to announce, and it required another forum hearing.

During the time they're discussing the forum, Pro-Temp Speaker Patrick McHenry runs to the floor on Tuesday, he then opens up the floor of the House of Representatives from recess, then adjourns the House until Noon, Wednesday, October 25, 2023.

Rep. Gaetz hypothesizes, "why did they do this?"  Gaetz believes that McCarthy and McHenry were setting up a play to block Rep. Johnson with write-in votes in the intra-conference process for Rep. McCarthy.  McCarthy was promising hearings on favorite legislation, passage of bills, chairmanships and so forth.  Gaetz said the play was for McCarthy to return as speaker and then make Rep. Jim Jordan as Deputy Speaker.  Rep. Garret Graves and other RINO's in the conference were trying to effectuate the return of McCarthy.  Gaetz stated that they were told that there would be a hundred votes for McCarthy on the write-in, whereas they failed to get a hundred and only got 33 on the first write-in.

Gaetz goes on say in the second vote McCarthy gets 43 to vote for him on a secret ballot, but Rep. Mike Johnson gets a majority of the votes.  Gaetz says, Rep. Mike Johnson at this point had asked for a roll call vote.  Gaetz said after calling for the roll call vote, McCarthy had got zero votes on the third vote.

We here at Peer Reviewed Politics wonder why none of the RINO's would do a roll call vote and then vote for Rep. McCarthy?

Gaetz believes these RINO's did not want to announce that they were voting for a person not even running for the nomination of speaker.  This is as swampy as it gets in congress.  It appears all along that Rep. McCarthy and other RINO's were plotting to bring back the former Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

We also noticed over the last few weeks that news networks like Fox News and pundits like RINO Karl Rove were pushing hard against Rep. Steve Scalise, Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Mike Johnson, because these three people are true conservatives.

Fox News, Senator Mitch McConnell, and washouts like RINO Karl Rove want these K street lobbyist, so they all can get rich of legislation.  The Biden Administration also wants a squishy Republicans, so they will help pass 3000 pages omnibus bills without anyone reading them.

Well folks, we think these omnibus bills will be all coming to a end, if this new Speaker has his way, but don't count out people like Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy and these other RINO's to start running rough shot over the heads of these true conservatives.

Remember, these are corrupt RINO's who will do their worst to make sure that these conservatives will not win again, as there is way too much food at the trough to just to forget about it.

WeThePeople need to do our jobs to remove these RINO's from congress.  In the mean time, our hats are off to Rep. Matt Gaetz and Speaker Mike Johnson, Bravo guys, well played!

Second Speaker Vote Ended with 22 GOP Defectors - Here are Their Names


Photo Credit: medium.com

Peer Reviewed Politics: Earlier today, the House of Representatives again voted for the second time to replace Former Speaker McCarthy.  The vote taken today to elect Rep. Jim Jordan ended with 22 Obstructionist GOP members who voted against Representative Jim Jordan and the Peoples will. .

As promised we are listing the names of these GOP members who interfered with the progress of electing a speaker after two weeks of not having a speaker in the House of Representatives.  The seat was vacated after the former speaker failed to follow the agreed agenda of House Conservatives, which resulted in unchecked spending of a stop gap Omnibus bill, which also funded President Biden's Administration open borders and illegal aliens over veterans and homeless citizens.

These GOP member names will be published in an online voters pamphlet that we will creating in the near future for the next election.  We are asking constituents to remember in November for any GOP member that is up for election this November.  We have had 3 bad speakers in a row and this puts our party at risk of losing the House of Representatives to the Progressive Socialist and Communist in November because the GOP is unable to stop the huge spending that they promise the people they would do if elected.

We are asking constituents to primary these RINO's and also to consider running against them if they have no conservative challengers.

Here are the following names of GOP members that defected:

  • Arkansas Representative Steve Womack voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Colorado Representative Ken Buck voted for House Whip Tom Emmer;
  • Florida Representative Vern Buchanan voted for Rep. Byron Donalds;
  • Florida Representative Mario Diaz-Balart voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Florida Representative Carlos Gimenez voted for ousted Former Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy;
  • Florida Representative John Rutherford voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Geogia Representative Drew Ferguson voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Idaho Representative Mike Simpson voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Iowa Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks voted for Rep. Kay Granger;
  • Michigan Representative John James voted for a public works commissioner Candice Miller;
  • Minnesota Representative Pete Stauber voted for Rep Bruce Westerman;
  • Nebraska Representative Don Bacon voted for ousted Former Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy;
  • New York Representative Anthony D'Esposito voted for Former Rep. Lee Zeldin;
  • New York Representative Andrew Farbarino voted for Former Rep. Lee Zeldin;
  • New York Representative Nick LaLota voted for Former Rep. Lee Zeldin;
  • New York Representative Mike Lawler voted for ousted Former Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy;
  • Oregon Representative Lori Chavez-DeRemer voted for ousted Former Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy;
  • Pennsylvania Representative Mike Kelly voted for ousted Former Speaker Jon Boehner;
  • Texas Representative Jake Ellzey voted for Rep. Mike Garcia;
  • Texas Representative Tony Gonzales voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Texas Representative Kay Granger voted for Rep. Steve Scalise;
  • Virginia Representative Jan Kiggans voted for ousted Former Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy;


  • Some of these representatives voted for one of the two speakers that were ousted, whereas one of them who was just ousted.  Most of these votes appear to be some kind protest vote, whereas the other votes appear to be votes to stop Representative Jim Jordan from taking the gavel before the November 17, 2023 Omnibus bill, which is shortly coming up.

    We have heard from sources as well as other news media groups that there maybe a Plan B in effect to either elect Speaker Pro tempore Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina or to at least give him the power and authority to move legislation through the House of Representative with the help of Democrats.  We are hearing there are back room deals going on with some of these RINO's and the Democrats for a possible vote to give McHenry the ability to bring legislation to the floor of the House of Representatives, which will likely include spending bills that Representative Jim Jordan would decline to bring to the floor if he becomes the Speaker of the House.

    This frivolous spending is causing high inflation and increases in the interest rates to contain the inflation.  Currently we have a bunch of banks that are likely to fail with another interest rate increase, but congress just doesn't seem to care about the affects of more spending.

    JPMorgan Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon stated, “This may be the most dangerous time the world has seen in decades,” Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser stated in September, “All of these macro dynamics have clearly impacted client sentiment, September is always a busy month seeing clients, and I'm struck how consistently CEOs are less optimistic about 2024 than a few months ago.”

    PNC Financial Services said it plans to lay off about 4% of its workforce as part of cost-cutting efforts.  The shares of PNC fell 2.6% and shares of other regional banks have also been down recently.   Dow Jones Industrial Average was down today 332.57 as Nvidia shows weakness, the jump in Treasury yields, and the House failing to elect a speaker.

    House will Have a Second Vote for Speaker on Wednesday, October 18. 2023


    Photo Credit: flickr.com

    Peer Reviewed Politics: The House today will vote for a second time on whether Representative Jim Jordon will become Speaker of the House of Representatives.  Yesterday's vote end up 16 votes short of making Rep. Jim Jordan the Speaker of the House.

    Some Republicans defected yesterday leaving Representative Jordan 16 votes short of taking the gavel in the House of Representatives.  Yesterday, 20 Republican holdout's denied Rep. Jim Jordan the speakership.  Democrats voted along party lines for their minority leader Democrat Hakeem Jeffries of New York who ended up getting 212 votes for the speakership.

    Some Republicans don't like Rep. Jim Jordan as he supported Former President Donald Trump, the Make America Great and Teaparty groups in the past. Both Make America Great Again and the Teaparty parties were instrumental in turning around the down turn of the United States economy when Democrats ruled the House, Senate, and Presidency.  There was extreme growth when the Teaparty and Make America Great Again groups got like minded members in congress and the Presidency.  There was record low unemployment, reduced spending, low taxes, and record high growth, low crime, and a huge drop in illegal aliens coming to the United States during the these times.

    It's been roughly two weeks since Former Speaker McCarthy was removed by eight Republicans and all Democrats.  Republicans were tried of the former speaker not keeping his promises, appearing to be extremely weak in his governing, and not setting the agenda that McCarthy promised he would do.

    The removal of Former Speaker McCarthy has made some moderate Republicans angry, which has caused some infighting and voting against both Rep. Steve Scalise and Rep. Jim Jordan when they dropped there name in the hat to be speaker.

    Rep. Steve Scalise has blood cancer and some members did not think it was a good idea to make him speaker, so he withdrew his name from the hat.  Both Rep. Steve Scalise and Rep. Jim Jordan are very well qualified for the speakership.  Rep. Jim Jordan has had issues with some RINO's in the House of Representatives because Jordan supported the Teaparty and Former President Trump.

    These so called Republicans in congress are not really conservative and are moderate 'Republicans in Name Only' (RINO's) who favor big spending, high taxes, and Democrat policies.  We are asking constituents in those states that these representatives preside in to call and e-mail their offices and tell them to vote for Representative Jim Jordan for the House Speaker.  Rep. Steve Scalise and Former Speaker McCarthy have both endorsed Rep. Jordan for House Speaker.

    Communist Democrats hate Jim Jordan and they call him a far-right extreme obstructionist, because these type Republicans like Jim Jordan believe that spending, gas, and taxes are too high and that these type of Republicans will put Americans First over these open-border communists who have opened the border wide open, which is currently causing chaos in the United States.

    Democrats and RINO's have been using taxpayer money to support these illegal aliens over our veterans and American citizen homeless population.  Democrats believe that they can move these fractions into red states in order to turn these states blue by allowing illegal's to vote in elections for Democrat socialist policies, but so far this has not been the case as Republican governors along the border have been pushing back and bussing these illegal aliens into blue states, where they have been draining the resources in those blue states.  This has caused constituents from those blue states to be mad at their elected officials in those blue states for their open border policies.

    There's even some RINO Republicans who are voting against Rep. Jim Jordan because they too want these illegal's in their states in order to have low wage H2 visa workers for employers, which ends up putting American citizens out of jobs or being forced to take lower wages in order to compete with the illegal aliens.

    We and constituents are watching the speakership vote carefully today and we will be publishing the names of Republican RINO's who vote against Representative Jim Jordan as Speaker of the House of Representatives.  We ask our viewers that if you live in states, whereas your representative(s) votes against Rep. Jordan as Speaker of the House of Representatives, to primary those Republican RINO's in the next election with another Republican or constituents who run against these establishment figures.

    Biden Administration, U.N., and Red Cross are Behind an Organized Operation to Send Illegal Aliens into the United States.


    Photo Credit: qcostarica.com

    Peer Reviewed Politics: The Biden Administration, the United Nations, and the Red Cross have organized an illegal effort to bring in millions of illegal aliens into the United States without seeking the proper legislation and/or authorization from congress as required by the Constitution under Article I, § 8, clause 4.

    The Biden Administration and Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have been lying to WeThePeople and congress over and over that the border is secure and President Joe Biden even asked congress in March of 2023 for increased spending on border security in the President's Fiscal Year 2024 Budget .

    The president stated that he would allocate nearly $25 billion to U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement in his 2024 budget in order to control illegal immigration at U.S. Border, which is nearly an $800 million increase over the 2023 border budget.

    What makes this disturbing, the Biden Administration's has been talking out of both sides of its mouth, while congress and the media either have not been smart enough to catch on to the lies and scam or congress and the media are complacent with the actions of the Biden administration.

    While DHS is getting all this money to secure the border, the Biden administration has also organized an operation with the help of the United Nations (U.N.) and Red Cross, which Peer Reviewed Politics calls it a Flea Flicker Operation, that actually sends illegal aliens to the United States, while the Biden administration is lying to the public claiming our government is doing something about the illegal alien invasion.

    Essentially, the Federal Government (Biden Administration) is behind this massive 'Flea Flicker' operation, which is paying countries to help send illegal aliens into U.S., while the Biden Administration, Department of Home Land Security, some in congress, and the fake news have been lying to the public, stating our border is secured.

    According to Panamanian government, the U.S. Government has allocated Panama over $50 million since 2020 for humanitarian assistance in the immigration crisis.   According to the U.S. embassy, Panama had received over $18 million in 2022, which was four times greater than the amount Panama received in 2021.  Panama stated they have spent near $8 million in 2022 on food alone just so these aliens would have food to eat while passing-through Panama.

    The end result is the American people are paying to keep illegal aliens out of our country, while we are also funding programs in Costa Rica and Panama called 'Controlled Flow', whereas this program is helping bring illegal aliens into the United States, which is being facilitated by the United Nations and Red Cross, while being paid for by the United States Tax Payers.

    This program is setting up migrant camps in Panama and Costa Rica, which will provide food, money, and transportation on buses for these illegal aliens, so they can make the journey to the United States and then illegally enter into the United States.

    UN Visa Card Photo Credit: @BensmanTodd on X (formerly Known as Twitter)

    These type of programs are such a waste of taxpayer money and resources, whereas this money could be used to help our fellow citizens, homeless population, veteran programs, and more.  The question is why are congress and the media being silent about these illegal programs?  We think that the lack of outrage by the public is due to the lack of knowledge about this information.  The Biden Administration is not being transparent and lying about what's' going on outside our border, and the lack of media willing to report on these type of issues.

    It's baffling to us here at Peer Reviewed Politics and we're sure that if the taxpayer knew this was happening, the taxpayer would certainly agree there is something rotten in Washington D.C. is going on.

    The public should understand that Article 1 of the United States Constitution grants only Congress the power to establish a uniform rule on naturalization not the President or the Executive branch, (See U.S. Const. Art. I, § 8, cl. 4).

    Naturalization is defined in United States Code as conferring the nationality of a state upon a person after birth, [See 8 USC 1101(a)(23)].  The Legislative branch enacts the laws and the Executive branch enforces the laws.  In Galvan v. Press, the Supreme Court stated, “The formulation of immigration policies is entrusted exclusively to Congress.  The Court in Chae Chan Ping v. United States described Congress’s immigration power as uncontroversial, stating, “jurisdiction over its own territory . . . is an incident of every independent nation.”

    Since the President and the Executive Branch doesn't have the power to fund or grant any type immigration rights to illegal aliens without the blessing of congress, these illegal acts of the President and the Executive Branch causing our country to be invaded should be challenged in the courts by Congress.  Yet, we don't see congress challenging the President's actions by bringing a suit in court for these illegal acts or starting an impeachment against President Biden for a dereliction of his duties to protect this country from invasion.

    Mark Levin also makes some great points on congress being AOL and derelict in their duties to secure the border of our country as required by our constitution.

    Oversight Committee Chairman Comer Releases Third Bank Memo Detailing Payments to the Bidens from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.

    WASHINGTON:  House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) today released a third bank records memorandum, which details new information obtained in the Oversight Committee’s investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling and pay to play schemes.  This new memorandum outlines how the Bidens and their business associates received millions of dollars from oligarchs in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.

    After Hunter Biden received millions of dollars in payments, then Vice President Joe Biden dined with his son’s foreign associates in Washington, D.C., which also included Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s former business partner that recently testified that Vice President Joe Biden's name “the brand” was sold to enrich the Biden family and was used to send “signals” of access, power, and influence.

    Chairman Comer stated, “During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold him as ‘the brand’ to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine.  It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself.  And Hunter Biden seems to have delivered.  This is made clear by meals at Café Milano where then Vice President Joe Biden dined with oligarchs from around the world who had sent money to his son.”

    Chairman Comer went on to say, “It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family, while he was Vice President of the United States.  The House Oversight Committee will continue to follow the money trail and obtain witness testimony to determine whether foreign actors targeted the Bidens, President Biden is compromised or corrupt, and our national security is threatened.”

    The third bank records memorandum can be found below with other memorandum's and the Devon Archer transcript.

    Bombshell Document Found and Its Devastating to President Joe Biden; Impeachment Very Likely Now.

    Bombshell document recovered by Tucker Carlson in an interview with Devon Archer, which delivers the knockout blow to President Joe Biden.  This document is sure to spell doom for the sitting President Joe Biden and cause his impeachment.

    The document shows and proves that Joe Biden and his son Richard Hunter Biden were doing business with Devon Archer, unlike what Joe Biden has been claiming and what Congressman Dan Goldman claimed on July 31, 2023 after a closed door hearing with the Oversight Committee.

    This document clearly proves that President Joe Biden and the Democrats have all been lying all along.

    Tucker Carlson use to work for Foxnews as a Journalist until he was released by FoxNews earlier this year.  Tucker Carlson is now on X (formerly called Twitter) and this is his 12th episode on X.  Mr. Carlson also has his own website too, its called tuckercarlson.com

    Testimony of IRS whistle blower Mr. Gary Shapley at a Full Committee Hearing of the Oversight Committee.

    We know that most people were not able to watch the full committee hearing of the Oversight Committee on July 19, 2023, which was in regards to the criminal behavior of Hunter Biden, his family, and how government officials and attorneys have been trying to cover up the treasonous behavior of President Joe Biden and the tax evasion and bribery schemes of both the President Joe Biden, Richard Hunter Biden and other Biden family members.

    We here at Peer Reviewed Politics ended watching most of the hearing, which was about 6 hours and 19 minutes long.  We shorten the video on YouTube to a clip size, so you can hear directly from the IRS Special Agent without anyone on the Oversight Committee questioning the whistle blowers.  This particular clip of the video is approximately 13 minutes and 33 seconds long and it’s an opening statement and narrative without questions.

    This video clip provides credible testimony by IRS whistle blower Mr. Gary Shapley who is a 14-year veteran of the IRS Criminal Investigation division who was investigating Richard Hunter Bidens for tax evasion.

    Mr. Shapley’s testimony and Mr. Ziegler’s testimony has knocked the Biden Administration off their feet and they are currently down for the count.  Because of the testimonies by these whistle blowers, it is believed that Judge Maryellen Noreika who was hearing Hunter Biden's plea agreement and the governments plea deal, which entailed pleading guilty to two counts of evading taxes and a diversion agreement requiring Hunter Biden to remain drug-free and crime-free to see a felony gun charge dismissed, has refused to accept federal prosecutors plea deal.

    It also appears there is evidence of malfeasance by either Attorney General Garland and/or Delaware Prosecutor David Weiss as well.

    We will post Mr. Ziegler’s testimony in another post here.  You may watch the full hearing at this link too if you want, just scroll it back to the beginning of the video and you can watch the whole video.  This is a clipped video testimony of IRS Criminal Investigation Agent Mr. Gary Shapley on July 19, 2023.

    Representative Gaetz & Director Wray on the Hunter Biden Investigation & the Illegal FISA Queries.


    FBI Director Christopher Wray was questioned by a number of representatives Wednesday, July 12, 2023, which it also included Chairman Jim Jordan.

    Representative Gaetz wasted no time in throwing punches at Director Wray on how the FBI is slow walking an investigation into Hunter and President Joe Biden related to a pay to play scheme and threats that were made to Chinese official.

    Representative Matt Gaetz continued to inquire why the FBI had also done over million of illegal FISA queries on Americans citizens out of 3.4 million queries the Inspector General reported that the FBI had done.

    These illegal queries on Americans even included the spouses and girlfriend's of FBI agents, as well as those under investigation for January 6th protests.

    Rep. Mike Johnson: "The American People Have Lost Faith in the FBI."


    Representative Mike Johnson spares no punches during his questioning of FBI Director Christopher Wray during the FBI Oversight Hearing on Capital Hill on July 12, 2023.

    Representative Mike Johnson questioned Director Christopher Wray on a multitude of questions, which included a bunch of FBI scandals, targeting of Conservatives and parents, and an attack on free speech by the FBI.  Rep. Johnson brings up the John Durham report and admonished the Director about how the FBI should have never had launched the Trump Russian investigation.

    Rep. Johnson went on about the lengthy Durham report, which concluded that the FBI failed to uphold it mission of strict fidelity to the law and how a recent NBC poll of the people on showed that 37% of people viewed the FBI positively and 35% had a negative view of the department as compare to the year of 2015, when the people had a 52% positive view of the FBI.

    Rep. Johnson stated, "There is a serious decline of peoples faith,"  Rep. Johnson continued to state,"It's on your watch, Sir..."

    Rep. Johnson then questioned Director Christopher Wray about his understanding and definition of disinformation.  It appeared that the Director did not seem to know the meaning of disinformation and stated that disinformation that he was taking about was tied to foreign actors.  Representative Johnson then called out Director Wray for not being truthful, stating that this was not foreign adversaries, but it was American Citizens.

    The Director denied Rep. Johnson's assessment that it wasn't foreign adversaries.  At this point, Representative Johnson directed Director Wray to the Durham report.

    You can see in the video clip, Representative Johnson was not buying into Director Wray's narrative that he was trying to sell to the FBI Oversight Committee...

    Autopsy Finding; Deaths After Covid-19 Vaccination

    Picture of Dr Peter McCullough

    Post-vaccination autopsies show those that were vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine had death causes related to the cardiovascular system (53%), hematological system (17%), respiratory system (8%), and/or multiple organ systems (7%).  In the autopsy studies it showed three or more organs were affected in 21 of the case studies and most deaths occurred within a week from the last vaccine administration.  According to the report, the mean time from vaccination to death was 14.3 days.

    Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist stated that these paper findings were published on Lancet’s preprint server.  After 24 hours, these papers were removed from the Lancet’s preprint server after the review papers were being downloaded more than a hundred times a minute.

    According to the studies and paper review of 325 autopsy cases and one necropsy case that were done by three physicians, which independently reviewed all deaths to determine whether the COVID-19 vaccination was a direct cause or had contributed significantly to death.  Of the 325 cases and one necropsy case, a total of 240 deaths (73.9%) were independently adjudicated as directly due to or significantly contributed to by COVID-19 vaccination.

    An autopsy confirmation and physician-led death adjudication, suggests there is a high likelihood of a causal link between COVID-19 vaccines and death in most cases.

    Dr. Peter McCullough stated, “The government narrative is still that people do not die after COVID-19 vaccination.  And now we have the largest series of autopsies. And the autopsies really are incontrovertible.”

    Testimony of IRS Employees Reveals Biden IRS, DOJ Interfered in Tax Investigation of Hunter Biden, Revealing Preferential Treatment for Wealthy and Politically Connected

    Ways and Mean Commitee Logo

    WASHINGTON, D.C.: A Ways and Means Committee executive meeting resulted in a vote to release to the public whistle blower testimony of two different IRS employees who worked directly on the tax evasion case of Hunter Biden.  That testimony outlines misconduct and government abuse at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the investigation of Hunter Biden.  The allegations point to a steady campaign of: unequal treatment of enforcing tax law; Department of Justice (DOJ) interference in the form of delays, divulgence's, and denials, into the investigation of tax crimes that may have been committed by the President’s son; and finally, retaliation against IRS employees who blew the whistle on the misconduct.

    Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (MO-08) released the following statement:

    “Today, the Ways and Means Committee voted to make public the testimony of IRS employees blowing the whistle on misconduct at the IRS and the Biden Department of Justice regarding unequal enforcement of tax law, interference and government abuse in the handling of investigations into criminal activity by President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and retaliation against IRS employees blowing the whistle on this abuse.

    “The American people deserve to know that when it comes to criminal enforcement, they are not on the same playing field as the wealthy and politically connected class.  The preferential treatment Hunter Biden received would never have been granted to ordinary Americans.

    “Whistle blowers describe how the Biden Justice Department intervened and overstepped in a campaign to protect the son of Joe Biden by delaying, divulging, and denying an ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden’s alleged tax crimes.  The testimony shows tactics used by the Justice Department to delay the investigation long enough to reach the statute of limitations, evidence they divulged sensitive actions by the investigative team to Biden’s attorneys, and denied requests by the U.S. Attorney to bring charges against Biden.

    “IRS employees who blew the whistle on this abuse were retaliated against, despite a commitment IRS Commissioner Werfel made before the Ways and Means Committee to uphold their legal protections.  They were removed from this investigation after they responsibly worked through the chain of command to raise these concerns.

    “The Committee has acted in good faith with participation from both Democrats and Republicans, as the issues raised today ought to be a bipartisan concern.  Hopefully we can find a path forward to continue to go where the facts lead us.  If the federal government is not treating all taxpayers equally, or if it is changing the rules to engineer a preferred outcome, Congress has a duty to ask why and to hold agencies accountable and consider appropriate legislative action.  The scales of justice must not be skewed in favor of the wealthy and the politically connected.”

    The transcripts for the whistle blower testimony are posted below:

  • Whistleblower #1 redacted transcript

  • Whistleblower #1 redacted affidavit

  • Whistleblower #2 redacted transcript

  • Whistleblower #2 redacted supplemental submission

  • June 7, 2023 letter

  • What the Committee Has Learned:

    The federal government is not treating all taxpayers the same – and providing preferential treatment to the wealthy and well-connected, including the son of the President of the United States.

  • Despite the fact that IRS officials recommended that Hunter Biden be charged with criminal activity that includes attempts to evade or defeat taxes, fraud and false statements, and willful failures to file returns, supply information, or pay taxes for over $8.3 million in income, Mr. Biden received preferential treatment in the course of the investigation, and has struck a plea deal that will likely keep him out from behind bars. Meanwhile…

  • In 2014, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida announced that a man was sentenced to 13 months in prison to be followed by a year of supervised release for failing to file an income tax return, the same misdemeanor tax offense that Hunter Biden was charged with.

  • The Department of Justice interfered in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s clear tax issues with a “Delay, Divulge, and Deny” campaign – that ultimately shielded him by allowing the statute of limitations to pass on his tax crimes.

  • DELAY: Recurring unjustified delays pervaded the investigation, including in authenticating the message between Hunter Biden and Chinese officials.  Investigators were told by U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf that “there is no way” a search warrant for evidence would get approved because the evidence of interest would be found in the guest house of former Vice President Biden.

  • DIVULGE: Investigators found out that attorneys for Hunter Biden were tipped off about actions relating to the investigation in advance.  For example, even as investigators had probable cause to search a Northern Virginia storage unit in which Hunter Biden had stored files, attorneys for Biden were tipped off.

  • DENY: U.S. Attorney of Delaware David Weiss tried to bring charges in District of Columbia around March 2022 and was denied.  Weiss sought special counsel status from DOJ in the Spring of 2022 and was denied.  Weiss sought to bring charges in the Central District of California in the Fall of 2022 and had that request denied in January 2023.

  • IRS employees worked through the chain of command to blow the whistle on this misconduct – only to be met with hostility and retaliation, leading them to come to the Ways and Means Committee.

  • Actions were taken to cut the IRS investigative team out of the process after they raised concerns up their chain of command.  One whistle blower was not selected for a position, when he was more qualified than the candidate who was selected.  Limits and pauses have been placed on other, unrelated investigations that the whistle blowers are working on – which hamper the investigators’ ability to do their work or advance.  The whistle blowers and their entire team were removed from the investigation on May 15, 2023, after blowing the whistle to Congress.
