Month in Review – December 2020

Here are the highlights for the month of December:

* On December 3, the Michigan Attorney General and the Director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights took the deposition of AFLC Co-Founder David Yerushalmi, who testified on behalf of AFLC.

This deposition is part of AFLC’s ongoing civil rights lawsuit against the Michigan AG and the MDCR for publicly relying upon the Southern Poverty Law Center’s bogus “hate group” list to target groups, including AFLC, in Michigan.

Motions for summary judgment are due on January 22, 2021.

* On December 9, the Michigan Supreme Court denied our Petition for Extraordinary Writs and Declaratory Relief by a 4 to 3 vote.  Justices Zahra and Viviano wrote lengthy dissents.

The petition was filed on behalf of two voters who are members of Black Voices for Trump, and who were disenfranchised and aggrieved by the determination of the Board of State Canvassers of Michigan to certify the 2020 general election without anyone conducting a full audit and investigation into the numerous (and substantiated) allegations of voter fraud and other serious voting irregularities.

The petition and associated brief presented substantial evidence of numerous instances of election malfeasance at the TCF Center in Detroit and throughout Wayne County, the most populous county in the State. See Brief.

The filings also demonstrated how Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s “vote by mail” scheme not only violated the U.S. Constitution by directly violating the absentee ballot law passed by the Michigan Legislature, but that it precipitated the malfeasance at the TCF Center and throughout the State.

Unfortunately, the 2020 election in Michigan will forever remain under a dark cloud.

* On December 11, a Pennsylvania federal judge denied our motion for a preliminary injunction, which sought to halt the Orwellian contact tracing program and mask mandate in that state.  That same day, we filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

We filed a motion for an injunction pending appeal in the appellate court.

* On December 21, we filed a motion in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan seeking permission to file a motion for summary judgment after Defendants Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio told the appellate court that New York would not enforce its COVID-19 protest restrictions against our client Pamela Geller.

The Defendants’ concession came as a result of our appeal of the lower court’s denial of our motion for an injunction against the state’s enforcement of its unconstitutional ban against public protests.

* On December 22, we filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan on behalf of Margaret (“Peggy”) Wittman, an election worker who was relieved of her duties by City of Hart, Michigan officials after she refused to hide her shirt bearing the message, “My heart will TRUST in you JESUS” while working at the polls during the November 3, 2020, general election.

The lawsuit alleges that City officials violated Wittman’s rights protected by the First (freedom of speech and free exercise of religion) and Fourteenth (equal protection) Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

* As always, we have several other important matters in the works!  Our fight for faith and freedom is particularly crucial during this current “pandemic” and the 2021 political crisis that is developing . . .

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.  We couldn’t do what we do without them!
