GOP gubernatorial nominee of Arizona, Kari Lake, is trailblazing the path forward when it comes to fighting the chaos of U.S. election systems, providing a blueprint for patriots across the nation who are facing rampant evidence of election fraud.
Lake filed a massive lawsuit against Democrat opponent and sitting Arizona Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, in December, seeking to call out voter disenfranchisement and Election Day errors that threaten the validity and legality of the entire election process.
Per Frontline America, Lake also named Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, Maricopa County Chairman Bill Gates, members of the Maricopa Board of Supervisors and the Maricopa County Director of Elections, Scott Jarrett, in the lawsuit.
“This case is about restoring trust in the election process – a trust that Maricopa County election officials and Hobbs have shattered,” the lawsuit stated. “The judicial system is now the only vehicle by which trust can be restored.”
Since the media crowned Hobbs the narrow victor of the gubernatorial race in November, the avalanche of evidence of incompetency in Maricopa County and beyond has been largely ignored by the arms of justice in the Grand Canyon State. The evidence has also been wholeheartedly ignored by the legacy media.
Hobbs is determined to plod forward, installing herself as the governor of Arizona, certifying her own election results, and subsequently tuning out the cries of Arizonans who feel that the dubious election processes of Maricopa County affected the outcome of the supposedly tight gubernatorial race.
U.S. elections are no longer respected or trusted
As reported by RSBN, 71 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that the problems in Maricopa County likely affected the outcome of the midterm results, per Rasmussen.
Notably, Kari Lake has not conceded in the Arizona governor’s race – nor should she. She remarked sharply on Twitter, “If the process was illegitimate then so are the results. Stay tuned folks…Furthermore, if the process was legitimate then so are the results. Let’s find out.”
Since 2020, the overwhelming problems plaguing the U.S. election system have been shockingly revealed, bringing to light the dirty underbelly of evidence of ballot trafficking, “malfunctioning” voting machines, and vote tabulation issues.
Between the investigative work done by election integrity organizations like True the Vote and VoterGA, there seems to be no place left in the U.S. that has been untouched by the stain of reports of election irregularities.
It begs the question: if the election system in the U.S. has become so catastrophically untrustworthy, how can people have faith in the results of election processes? Even worse, considering the evidence that that has surfaced revealing federal agencies colluding with Big Tech to censor conservative accounts and candidates, is it out of the realm of reason to question the results of the elections in America, too?
This has become an increasingly pointed question now that Election Day has suspiciously morphed into “Election Week.” Mail-in ballots are trucked in for days, remarkably setting Democrat candidates on a trajectory for victory by the time the votes trickle in. Often, the results are not declared until the week after Election Day or at least several days after.
Clearly, the election process has become a joke. What happened in Arizona is a prime example of the circus that U.S. elections have devolved into, and Kari Lake’s tenacity and fighting spirit is one that all true patriotic candidates – Republican or Democrat – should embrace.
While others weakly concede, Kari Lake fights
One of the biggest frustrations that voters have with Republican candidates today is their lack of strength. Too many Republican candidates are afraid to call out dubious election processes and are too quick to concede. Rather than fighting corruption, they bow to it, allowing the media and the establishment to seize power continually without resistance.
Whether Republicans do this because they are entrenched members of the political establishment or because they lack true grit is anyone’s guess.
An example of extremely murky election circumstances arose in November in the Nevada Senate race, where GOP U.S. Senate nominee Adam Laxalt led his Democrat opponent by an impressive eight points heading into Election Day, via RSBN.
And yet, over the course of “Election Week,” Laxalt’s wide lead slowly began to narrow to just 862 votes as “mostly mail in ballots counted continue to break in higher DEM margins than we calculated,” according to the Senate hopeful.
President Donald Trump weighed in on the debacle, issuing a clear warning to Laxalt on what was about to come down: “Clark County, Nevada, has a corrupt voting system (be careful Adam!), as do many places in our soon to be Third World Country,” he wrote.
As expected, Laxalt’s challenger “overtook” him by the end of the week-long process, miraculously eclipsing Laxalt’s lead in virtually all pre-election polling.
Laxalt posted his concession statement a full week after Election Day, stating that challenging the election results “would not alter the ultimate outcome,” per Fox News.
And yet, the trail of evidence appears clear: were it not for long, drawn-out Election Week counting, where thousands of mail-in ballots were shoveled in from precincts in places like Clark County, Laxalt should have easily won his race.
Why concede? Why not fight to make sure only legal votes were counted?
Why is Kari Lake the only candidate in the country with enough spine and grit to fight the obvious problems in the election system in the U.S.?
Lara Logan, an investigative journalist, remarked on Twitter, “Why is Kari Lake standing alone? Where is the GOP? There should be an army behind her – we know the people are…”
A new strategy
Lake’s resolve to battle it out with Hobbs and Maricopa County is a lesson for candidates who are truly concerned about American freedom. Patriots fight for liberty. They do not concede. They do not back down. They do not shy away from a skirmish, and they do not allow fear to overwhelm their common sense and commitment.
In 2022, Kari Lake has schooled the entire Republican Party – and the entire nation – on how to run an effective campaign and shine a light on the overwhelming evidence of malicious irregularities in our elections, from the county level and upward.
“Fatigue makes cowards of all men, Ms. Lake,” conservative host of “Louder with Crowder,” Stephen Crowder,” stated during an interview with the gubernatorial nominee.
“Well,” I’m a woman and I’m NOT tired,” Lake responded firmly. “I’m ready to go.”
And, if the Republican Party has any integrity left, it will join Lake in her fight to restore election integrity in the U.S.
If not, the people of the U.S. should be prepared to dip their toes into the civic process as 2024 draws closer, working to call out evidence of fraud and standing resolutely against it wherever it rears its ugly head.
