West Australian police just can’t help themselves. While we know WA, like its Victoria counterpart has become a communist enclave both led by megalomaniacs they have been conditioned by socialist main stream media to hate guns.
Like Queensland the unintelligent WA cops think only they should own and carry firearms. Communist Premier Mark McGowan invited the CCP to build a large military-styled airstrip in the desert ostensibly to service their extensive mining interests.
It is just a hop, skip and a jump from a CCP aircraft carrier in the Indian Ocean for Chinese military aircraft to land and commence their planned Australian offensive.
It seems the cops are of the same ilk as their beloved Premier. They will soon find out their .40 calibre Glock pistols will be as useful as an air rifle when the Chinese troops come knocking on their doors.
Ukranian women 18 – 60 being conscripted to fight
Latest Ukraine Update 5
Three Ukrainian battalions destroyed in counteroffensive. The Ukrainians tried to push the RF out of Southern Donetsk. The Russian forces stepped back allowing the Ukrainian battalions to enter the strike zone at which point the RF launched its artillery, the battalions were obliterated. “The Ukrainian forces are now pulling back somewhere between 67 and 120klm to reform the front line,” military correspondent Colonel Komiyenko said through an interpreter.
Two Swiss howitzers were destroyed, one damaged using satellite guided rockets (needles), two planes and 2 choppers were destroyed today. The last two Ukrainian frigates were sunk today, the RF now has full control of the sea and will be able to traverse the Dnieper to strike enemy targets or deliver troops/supplies at will to predetermined destinations of their choosing. The ships will now essentially have unrestricted access to Odessa and will be easy striking range to Nikolaevka. The Ukrainian’s will soon need be fighting on 5 different fronts. The colonel said we’ll soon see how they handle that.
In the Donbass region the RF have encircled approximately 12,000 Ukrainian troops and their mercenaries, there situation is dire. Ukrainian fighters are surrendering in droves. The Ukrainians would like a prisoner exchange, the Russian forces say it would take months to return the POWs they currently have in their custody.
Elon Musk was informed that if his satellites were not relocated, they would be dealt with. His satellites have since vacated their orbital positions over the conflict zone. The Russian satellites are now dominating the space over the conflict zone. Two strategic Polish battalions took heavy losses and have stepped back. There is intel that suggests Ukraine and Poland consider their two countries amalgamated, as the borders between them are becoming obtuse. Ukrainian saboteur groups are attempting to take Transnistrian weapons silos (arguably the largest weapons stores in Europe) however the RF has placed significant reinforcements there. Gagauzia an autonomous territorial unit of Moldova, has declared support for Russia.
In the southern regions of Donetsk, the RF provided an opening to the Ukrainian forces. They made it appear that their focus was in a different sphere. It appeared to the Ukrainians that the Russian front was weakening Zelensky mobilized his elite forces from their Kiev locations to strike at the apparently weakened Russian forces. The Ukrainian elite force was decimated it is estimated that between 70 to 90% of the force was crippled. The forces currently protecting Kiev have been reduced to a minimum. It appears that checkmate is on the horizon.
Zelensky passed a new law two days ago, women between the ages of 18-60 can and will be conscripted to fight. This was made public today. Currently the Ukrainian’s are conscripting all and any male old enough to fight. You could enter a shop to buy a bottle of milk and end up in the back of a truck heading to the front. Zelensky passed a law 3 months ago that no Ukrainian male between the ages of 18 and 50 can leave the country.
Bulgaria has officially declared that it will not support Ukraine. They are currently experiencing huge protests as the fuel price has hit USD 3.60 per litre previously unheard of. The US currently has serious issues with China, and Iran attacked a US base on its border last night.
The Ukrainians want the US to enter the conflict zone as peace keepers. In this case it will be highly probable that WWIII will break out as the US will not be permitted to enter the Ukraine. As a last resort weapons of mass destruction may be used.
As of today, China and India have stopped using USD to conduct oil/gas trades with Russia. They are transferring to ruble payments. Recently the African nations met to discuss international relations. They are of the opinion that the US has been cheating them for decades and that their intention is to conduct all international trades in local currencies. It would appear the USD is being abandoned at a great pace. It appears that the African countries have refused to provide the Germans and the French their countries’ resources and have stopped supplying coffee to the US.
Massive blackouts on the way

Before anyone get into the wind turbine and PV solar debate they ought to know how electricity is generated and why.
Our homes and industries require 50Hz energy. The generators have to produce to within 0.1% an exact 50Hz – sinusoidal sine wave form. Refer to jug label. 230V 50Hz.
This means a generator must rotate at a fixed speed as required by law.
At high peak periods when the work force rises for work and switch all their jugs and toasters on there is a huge demand for electricity which has the effect of slowing a generator. Steps are taken to maintain speed ie more water or steam pressure.
Subsequent generators on a grid must produce the same 50hz at the exact same time as required by law. Synchronous energy.
A wind turbine does not meet any of these requirements. They are useless and cannot boil a jug. They produce useless harmonics which through smart meters are fraudulently added to consumers power bills. Hence the reason your power bill went up after the smart meter was installed.
Rooftop PV solar cannot pass back into the grid. It is like a college team pushing against the national rugby team. Going nowhere.
Wind turbines are totally useless.
Rooftop PV solar can provide energy to self.
The Australian electricity grid is in serious trouble. Blackouts are on the way.

AUSTRALIA’S new federal Labor government has been struck with a reality bug. According to the new Resources Minister Madeleine King, coal-fired power plants need to come back online to provide relief from the energy crisis gripping the east coast.
This after Labor, the Greens and Teals ran their election campaign on “combatting the climate crisis”, “ending the climate wars” (no more debate on the climate change theory) and “transitioning to renewables”. Greens leader “Adam Bandit” even threatened not to support the government unless they pledge to stop all coal and gas developments. Bandt is a fool and yes, a bandit intent on impoverishing the Aussie economy by shutting down its major energy sources.
Bandt’s most recent contribution to the issue was this Tweet: “Gas corporations are holding us ransom. Gifting an essential service to big corporations has left us facing soaring prices just to keep the power on. We need a publicly-owned big build of solar, wind, batteries & storage. Starting right now.”
Bandt sees part of the problem but his solution is wishful thinking. Does he really think batteries like the one in South Australia are a solution to an energy crisis? That 150m/W battery provides a full-power electricity supply for a whole hour. It’s only advantages are that it fires up very quickly and can avert unexpected blackouts.
South Australia gets 800MW of electricity from gas, 210MW from its large-scale wind and solar farms and 600MW from rooftop solar panels.
Meanwhile Minister King threw out the surprise appeal a few days before a meeting of Commonwealth, state and territory energy ministers on June 8th to discuss the soaring gas and coal prices, brought about by the war in Ukraine and the idiotic US and EU attempts to punish Vladimir Putin by strangling their own gas and oil supplies from Russia.
But this war-driven energy crisis is not the first one. Back in the early 1970s there was one, driven by OPEC countries cutting production during the fourth Arab-Israeli war. OPEC was trying to force an Israeli withdrawal from Arab-Palestinian lands.
They were also trying to exercise some control over the Anglo-American oil cartel, which produced about 50% of petroleum in western countries in 1972 and controlled 85-90% of oil exports from developing countries. This same oil cartel funded the first Earth Day in 1970, thereby popularising the global environmental/population control movement with its central message of restricting use of resources i.e. creating more government and big corporate control over resources.
The cartel generated its huge profits from the difference between monopoly-driven low prices that oil was purchased at from developing exporter countries and relatively high petroleum product prices in importing countries. In other words, big business and geopolitical factors drove the “crisis”, not an actual shortage of energy.
And so it is now with the same old Anglo-EU-US business and political cartel, this time running a war against Russia, who they see as a threat to their desired unipolar world order with its US dollar reserve currency. Russia is directly challenging that state of affairs by trying to lay claim to Ukraine by force.
Another factor is the drive by globalists (primarily the World Economic Forum) to force the entire planet into a “great reset” or new world order. Their narrative employs the bogus climate scare campaign and the so-called transition to renewables. This transition demands the demonization of fossil fuels, which are relatively easy to extract and highly efficient because of their vastly higher energy density.
The globalists’ grand plan is to electrify or convert to hydrogen all transport while taking control of and limiting energy production in the name of “sustainability”. But the harsh reality, as pointed out by Scottish academic Robert Wilson PhD: “…90% of the planet’s 200 largest cities almost certainly cannot be powered predominantly by local renewable energy.”
Advocates of renewable energy like the Australia Institute repeatedly claim that renewables are now comparable or cheaper than fossil fuel electricity. But that only applies on sunny days and windy conditions. Coal, gas or oil-fired power stations produce electricity on demand for peak use periods, not when the weather suits.
Dr Wilson: “In fact, on the scale of most countries aggregate wind farm output can be assumed to have almost zero reliability. In this sense, every wind farm must have a fossil fuel power plant sitting in wait for when the wind does not blow.” He continues: “The lesson is reasonably clear; Britain and Germany’s aggregate wind farm output can be expected to go below 1% of total installed capacity with reasonable regularity.”
Solar is not much better, even if it does have a higher power density than windmill power. “Commercial solar photovoltaic panels typically average between 10 and 15% efficiency,” Dr Wilson notes.
The key factor separating fossil fuels from wind, solar and biofuels is power density, as expressed in Watts per square metre (W/m2). Wilson notes that typical generation of fossil fuel and nuclear electricity has a power density of at least an order of magnitude greater than that of renewable energy.
“Power densities are comfortably above 100W/m2 after accounting for mining etc. And conventional power plants often have power densites in excess of 1000/m2.” He cites the example of a small propane powered generator (3500W) which can be bought at a hardware store for a few hundred dollars. It provides in excess of 1000W/m2, which is far in excess of the power density of any conceivable new method of generating renewable energy.
These physical economic realities are behind why the people who advise Australia’s Energy Minister suddenly saw the writing on the wall. No, renewables, although useful, do not have the ability to meet those peak demand periods such as the current polar weather across much of Australia.
Minister King told the ABC that outages of coal-fired power represented 30% of the Australian energy mix and operators needed “to get moving on fixing their plants right now.”
Former energy minister Angus Taylor told the ABC Australia had seen record levels of investment in household solar and renewables more generally and the highest levels of household solar in the world. But that solar power supply had to be matched with dispatchability which is why gas was crucial to balance the grid.
The Western Australia government policy reserves 15 per cent of gas produced in the state for local consumption, which reportedly has spared WA from soaring gas prices.
“The gas reservation policy of Western Australia was a very great political struggle to introduce, it was very hard on the then state Labor government, and a lot of people lost a lot of political skin in that fight,” King said.
“It was also part of the design of the export industry — so it came in at the same time, and was also part of, the investment decisions of international investors into the WA gas production system. That kind of system is very hard to reverse engineer now on the east coast, [the] export market was developed without that in place, investment decisions were made without that restriction.”
So what is the lesson to be learned? Obviously we need national reserves of fossil fuel and probably another coal-fired power station to replace the one shut down by the lefty Labor loonies in Victoria and the one demolished in South Australia. Renewables should be seen as the stand-in source of power and made to work in tandem with the national grid, not against it.
And if you’re lucky enough to live on a sunny, windy property next to a creek, then good luck with your mini-hydro, solar panels and windmill.
How can the aboriginal people trust any co-operative agenda with this globalist-minded, covid-vaccine-addicted Government, even now as more light shines on Australia’s recent unconstitutional, fraudulent election process?
The Qld Parks talk of planning for “sustainable livelihoods and economic development opportunities” sounds somewhat incongruous in terms.
Do the aboriginal people trust the promises made about the land to them, such as:
– become independent highly functioning land managers
– meet governance and land management obligations
– create networks and pursue economic development opportunities.
With the present Government it seems safe to say that all Australians will miss out. The local cattle producers and the aboriginal people.
Kevin Annett in Canada continues after many long years of seeing genocide of native peoples to disclose west coast puppet Indian chiefs as China’s biggest allies in the robbing of Canadian resources and sovereignty.
It was reported prior to the election that Australia’s Indigenous leaders were calling on the next Australian government to hold a referendum on a First Nations Voice to Parliament within two years. Labor has agreed to a referendum on a Voice to Parliament, and has also said it would establish a “Makarrata Commission” to oversee a national process for treaty and truth-telling. Labor MP Linda Burney has said, “An Albanese Labor [government] will work with First Nations communities towards a referendum in our first term”.
Back in 2013, the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) High-level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development stated: “The HLPF is well positioned to better integrate sustainable development into global economic governance and policies in order to improve the legitimacy and sustainability of the international economic order.”
Shortly afterwards, a Traditional Knowledge, Natural Resources meeting was organised by the United Nations University – Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), on Respecting Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge and Culture at the IUCN World Parks Congress, which was held from 12 to 19 November 2014 in Sydney, Australia. Sponsors were Australian Government Parks Australia, NSW Government, National Parks and Wildlife Service, NSW.
Indigenous leaders from around the world, including Patrick Dodson (Australia), Victoria Tauli-Corpuz (the Philippines), Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim (Chad), Ramiro Batzin (Guatemala), and Aroha Mead (New Zealand) attended.
The UNU-IAS and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Commission on Protected Areas, ran the event called Nature-Culture Linkages: Stewardship of Biocultural Landscapes for Biodiversity and People. Here is their spiel in 2014 –
“The effective and equitable governance of protected areas is considered to be one of the best ways of slowing today’s unprecedented loss of biodiversity. However, while their stewards may be equipped with legal instruments, resource constraints and other issues can make it difficult for protected areas to realize their intended effects. To achieve conservation targets, it is therefore important to recognize the need for cooperative management of buffer zones and corridors that border and surround protected areas. Increasingly, indigenous and traditional knowledge and land-use practices by communities in biocultural landscapes inside and neighbouring protected areas are being recognized for their potential contributions in this area. This session aims to stimulate discussion and solicit suggestions regarding the significance of biocultural landscapes, UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme, and other protected landscapes, customary uses of biodiversity, and the concept of socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) as defined by the Satoyama Initiative.”
So now in 2022 we are reaping the fruits of their unintelligent hypothesis.
Another session was held on Traditional Fire Management and Climate Change Mitigation, which linked “fire as a key tool in protecting economic, cultural and environmental assets.”
These people are totally bewitched by the serpent. The aboriginal people are being used for totally nefarious purposes and I’m very sorry to see this.

There are few political rallies if any in Australia that could attract similar followings to statesman Donald Trump. He has a most interesting message for Americans and for Deep State.
On Thursday 2 June 2022, Mr Cheng Fan was convicted and sentenced for a number of offences relating to a series of spam emails circulated during the 2020 Eden-Monaro by-election.
Australian Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said that the case marks Australia’s first successful prosecution of a person for breaching electoral laws that prohibit misleading or deceiving Australians about the act of casting a vote.
“Yesterday’s sentencing of Mr Fan demonstrates that those who seek to undermine the integrity of Australia’s electoral system will be brought to account,” Mr Rogers said.
“A result like this draws a line in the sand as it provides precedent for any similar misbehaviour in the future.”
Mr Fan’s sentence included a penalty for breaching section 329 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 by distributing matter that the court considered was likely to mislead or deceive an elector in the relation to the casting of a vote.
“This result is also a credit to the Electoral Integrity Assurance Taskforce, to which the AEC referred this matter in 2020,” Mr Rogers said.
“The work of the Taskforce is one more reason Australians can be confident in the integrity of our elections.”
Electoral Integrity Assurance Taskforce
The Electoral Integrity Assurance Taskforce is constituted by relevant agencies across Federal Government, working together to provide information and advice to the Electoral Commissioner on matters that may compromise the real or perceived integrity of the federal election.
The Taskforce was first in place for the federal by-elections held in 2018 and again for the 2019 and 2022 Federal Elections. It also operated during the 2020 Eden-Monaro and Groom by-elections.

Atmospheric gas ratios are self regulating. If Greens as they reckon have the ability to alter the atmospheres gas ratios then there will be no life left on Earth.
From “CO2 Spin on that” – a site no long available –
……..In his memoirs entitled “Contributions to Molecular Physics in the Domain of Radiant Heat”, detailing a series of experiments conducted at the Royal Institution, Tyndall fallaciously states with regard to Oxygen and Nitrogen that they are both quote:
“practically transparent to radiant heat.”
Thus laying the foundations of AGW fraud.
This statement by John Tyndall is the origin of such claims as “the science is settled” and the “greenhouse effect is 150 year old established physics.” In terms of radiant heat it is the only factor that would differentiate between the various atmospheric gases.
After all, Oxygen and Nitrogen constitute 99% of the atmosphere. If these two gases are shown to absorb and re-emit infrared radiation, what would make so called “Greenhouse Gases” like CO2, such a threat to the environment at only 0.0385% of the atmosphere?
So the basis for the “Greenhouse Effect” is that incoming and out going IR is not absorbed by Oxygen and Nitrogen which instead passes straight through these gases. According to this unsubstantiated hypothesis, only those gases which are termed “Greenhouse Gases” posses the capability to absorb and re-emit infrared radiation.
The problem for the hypothesis of the “Greenhouse Effect” and of course AGW itself is that the basic premise on which the hypothesis is based is false.
Firstly, Oxygen and Nitrogen both have higher specific heat capacities than CO2……………
……………The evidence I have presented here conclusivly shows that Oxygen and Nitrogen which constitute 99% of the Earths atmosphere, as one would expect, do in-fact absorb infrared radiation.
The claim that these two gases are transparent to IR is completely fallacious. Which goes along way to explain why the “Greenhouse Effect” hypothesis is one of the longest standing unsubstantiated hypothesis in the history of science.
The so called “Greenhouse Effect” will always remain an hypothesis for the simple reason that it is based on pseudo science.
The climate change believers science is debunked
CO2 is only 0.0385% of the atmosphere and is the heaviest gas in the atmosphere which is why plants are able to utilise it in the respiration process.
Carbon Dioxide Not a Well Mixed Gas and Can’t Cause Global Warming
By: John O’Sullivan
“………CO2: The Heavy Gas that Heats then Cools Faster!
The same principle is applied to heat transfer, the Specific Heat (SH) of air is 1.0 and the SH of CO2 is 0.8 (heats and cools faster). Combining these properties allows for thermal mixing. Heavy CO2 warms faster and rises, as in a hot air balloon. It then rapidly cools and falls………………”
Ukraine update 3
Two days ago on the Donetsk front Russian forces completely surrounded 18,000 Ukrofascists including their contingent of mercenaries.
Two large battalions were sent to assist these Ukranian troops but they too were taking heavy losses and the survivors were scattered throughout local forests.
Russian forces were combing the area in a mop-up exercise.
The next night Russia sent a stern message to the Kiev junta in the form of heavy missile strikes throughout Kiev taking out targeted warehouses storing military equipment including a tank repair facility ‘Eneromash.’
This was in response to Kiev’s malicious artillery attack on peaceful civilians in the heart of Donetsk where there were no Russian troops stationed.
Russian command has warned the Ukrofascists should these war crimes continue then RF will potentially “level” Ukranian cities, with Kiev high on the list.
Military correspondent Cossack Colonel Yuri Komiyenko said through an interpreter an average of one town a day in the Kharkov region is being liberated by the RF as the front line gets closer to the Ukrofascists.
Kharkov is located in the north of Ukraine near the NATO-controlled Polish border.
“The Ukranians have spent the last eight years fortifying their positions with concrete bunkers and structures and it takes more time to punch through these reinforced positions,” he said.
“ A large fighting contingent of Polacks with some Australian and US mercenaries took heavy losses.
“A captured Ukarnian POW at Azovstal complained about their troops losing 26 snipers in one night.
“We have advanced technology to counter snipers,” he said.
Ukraine reportedly has lost much of its fighting forces and is desperately recruiting whomever they can find to help strengthen their dwindling front line.
“Another POW described how he was picked up by the Ukrofascists while walking along the street. “They threw him into the back of the truck, told him to change his clothes into a military outfit and was handed a firearm. A little Later he was dumped near the front and told to go and fight. Within 24hours he was surrendering to the RF.”
In the Lvov region a warehouse packed with American-supplied 177 Howitzers was destroyed. The large amount of stored ammunition and equipment set off a devastating explosion causing several small towns to burn to the ground.
“The Bezkidzki twin tunnels transgressing the Carpathian Mountains in western Ukraine were hit again, this time sealing them permanently. The damage is extensive and there will be no more transit through them,” the Colonel explained.

Play by their rules YOU LOSE
By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
ARIZONA State Representative Mark Finchem has put a resolution to the State Legislature calling for the 2020 general elections in Maricopa, Pima and Yuma Counties to be set aside based on “clear and convincing evidence that the elections in those counties were irredeemably compromised”.
Finchem, who is running for Secretary of State, says the questions first raised over a year ago by the State Senate’s audit of the 2020 election allegedly won by Joe Biden, persisted. “Evidence and testimony collected since November 3, 2020, has reached the point of clear and convincing and is now in the hands of the Arizona Attorney General for action.”
Finchem’s action was followed by news that the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) has warned state election officials that electronic voting machines made by Dominion Voting Systems in at least 16 states have serious issues leaving them vulnerable to hacking.
The CISA warning is based on a report by University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, who says election officials should go back to using hand-marked paper ballots because computers are at high risk for hacking and require a heightened level of security.
US mainstream media, which since late 2020 has repeatedly reported Trump’s election fraud allegations as “debunked”, “unproven” and “baseless” is now in panic mode, trying to downplay the now clearly evident reality of organised election fraud in multiple states.
The 2020 general election audit by the state senate 18 months ago found, among other issues, 34,448 duplicate ballots cast by 17,126 unique voters in Maricopa County. Biden allegedly won by just over 10,000 votes. In Yuma County authorities are now investigating 16 vote fraud cases involving impersonation, false registrations, duplicate voting, and absentee ballot fraud connected to recent primary elections.
Meanwhile a former Democrat mayor of St Luis Arizona, Guillermina Fuentes, has pleaded guilty to various charges involving vote harvesting, whereby immigrants and others are given “voting assistance” and ballots are filled in without them making an informed choice. Democrats are notorious for a variety of abuses of this system, which is fed by legal and illegal immigrants and homeless people.
The typically Democrat-inclined Arizona media has played down the prosecution, with Az Central commenting “there’s no sign her illegal ballot collection went beyond the small-town politics Fuentes was involved in”. Fuentes was more likely playing the low-level Democrat election-meddling role common across all jurisdictions in the US.
In Georgia an organisation called VoteGA found video footage from 100 ballot drop-off boxes in the state had been illegally destroyed. This affected the integrity of some 1.7 million votes. In Wisconsin criminal charges against five election commissioners were recommended by Racine County sheriff but the county DA would not pursue prosecution “because none of them live in her county and she doesn’t have jurisdiction”.
In Michigan in December 2020 Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf and the Barry County Sheriff’s Office sued the state’s Attorney General, the Secretary of State, the director of the Bureau of Elections, the State Police and two troopers. Charges included interfering, obstructing and covering up election fraud investigations, machine voting, ballot harvesting and trafficking. But a court ruled against Sheriff Leaf on legal technicalities.
It was one of many cases, including VoteGA’s recent case, brought to the courts and dismissed, usually because of technicalities ruled by Democrat-appointed judges or other judges simply unwilling to face media and political backlash if cases proceeded
Back in Arizona, The Attorney General Mark Brnovich reported that an Election Integrity Unit review uncovered instances of election fraud by individuals who have been or will be prosecuted for various election crimes.
Local reporter Laurie Roberts of Az Central actually mocked the report because it cited only nine actual cases of fraud. But she ignored the report’s references to other systemic issues being investigated. “So. Nine cases of election fraud. Out of 3.4 million votes cast,” Roberts wrote. “Something’s widespread, all right, and rather fragrant, as well. But it isn’t fraud.”
Finchem, in the face of denials, said there was in fact valid constitutional and statutory grounds for a state to set aside election results and the critics were clearly disregarding longstanding jurisprudence.
He said Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the US Constitution provided for states to appoint, “in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct”, a number of electors, equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.
He also noted a Supreme Court of the US statement: “Whatever provisions may be made by statute, or by the state constitution, to choose electors by the people, there is no doubt of the right of the legislature to resume the power at any time.” Finchem further noted that a significant common law principle was that actions taken as the result of fraud or illegality were “void ab initio”, and can be rescinded (United States v. Bradley).
“In the case of Maricopa, Pima and Yuma Counties, the fact that there is evidence showing illegal acts occurred, whether by intent or omission does not matter, the margin of error exceeds the margin of victory,” Finchem stated in a media release.
“If we are a nation governed by the ‘rule of law,’ as we so often espouse, then violations of the law must have consequences. In that regard, the 2020 General Election is irredeemably compromised, and it is impossible to name a clear winner of the contest.” Finchem was elected to the state Legislature in 2015 and is now in his fourth and final term.
He graduated with distinction from Grand Canyon University (private) with a BA in State and Local Public Policy, and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in law and economics at the University of Ariz
