When Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) raises serious questions about the FBI and their actions and handling of the raids on James O’Keefe and potential leaks to the liberal New York Times, you can bet he already knows plenty.
As president pro tempore emeritus of the United States Senate, has plenty of knowledge. He has held his Senate seat since 1981.
Here is the senator’s formal letter to the Department of Justice and FBI:
On October 9th, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, 45th President Donald J. Trump endorsed Grassley for an 8th term.
“I was born at night but not last night, so if I didn’t accept the endorsement of a person that’s got 91 percent of the Republican voters in Iowa, I wouldn’t be too smart. I’m smart enough to accept that endorsement,” Grassley told the crowd.
On Tuesday, as the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Grassley had plenty to say about the Biden Administration’s handling of immigration.
“The most solemn responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security is to protect the people of the United States,” Grassley said. “In choosing to actively ignore the immigration laws passed by Congress and in choosing to pursue policies that encourage unprecedented levels of uncontrolled illegal immigration to the United States, this Administration and this DHS have failed on both counts.”
The all time record as of Friday for the number of people at the Iowa State Fairgrounds was 17,300.
President Donald J. Trump, nine months after he left office, shattered that record at his October 9, 2021 rally at the venue near Des Moines. Final official counts haven’t been released yet, but local law enforcement estimate the crowd easily exceeded 22,000.
Some in the audience had been camping there since Tuesday to ensure good views of the former president. During the day, prior to Trump’s arrival, a plane flew over the crowd with the waving sign behind it reading “Let’s Go Brandon.”
Trump tore into former vice president “Sleepy” Joe Biden and “nut job” Nancy Pelosi for their “socialist transformation bill, it’s an open borders bill, [and] it’s an American energy destruction bill.”
“Joe Biden and the radical Left Democrats in Congress are trying to ram through a $3.5 trillion, wild, spending, binge that costs more than the entire sum the United States has spent on any war in the history of our country,” Trump said.
“Not only is this the largest spending bill of all time, it’s the largest tax hike of all time,” he continued. “This monstrosity is so dangerous for our country and so bad for children and grandchildren to come. This monstrosity is a bill to end America as we know it, it’s so bad.”
Trump went after GOP RINOS and spared no mercy on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for supporting a short-term extension of the nation’s debt.
He also blasted “warmongerer” Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, Georgia’s corruption plagued Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Gov. Brian Kemp for “absolutely refus[ing] to do anything about” the obvious voter fraud in the state.
“They rigged the election, and now, based on the rigged election, they’re destroying our country,” he said.
“Hillary conceded!” he enthusiastically told the crowd. “I never conceded.”
“[There’s] no reason to concede,” he continued. “When you look at the numbers of these swing states…they should have conceded.”
Trump spoke about the two scam efforts to impeach him during his term and the “totally made up … scheme” alleging his campaign colluded with Russia ahead of the 2016 election.
“For five straight years, it has been a con job, one after another, one con job after another, a nonstop parade of fake whistleblowers, phony investigations, twisted conspiracy theories, and very, very perverted lies,” he said.
Due to Biden’s month long destruction of the United States, Trump suggested he should change his rally slogan to “Make America great again, again” because “America is not great right now,” but was during his presidency.
Trump endorsed Republican U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, calling Grassley “a great American patriot” and “a man who loves Iowa.”
“We have with us tonight a great American patriot, a man who truly loves Iowa — loves Iowa,” Trump said. “He’s a young — very young guy. He’s strong. And he’s very handsome. He fights like no other. When I’ve needed him for help he was always there.”
“I’m thrilled to announce tonight that Sen. Chuck Grassley has my complete and total endorsement for reelection,” he said.
Over 3,000 state troopers from other states are being sent to the southern borders of Texas and Arizona to help with the Biden Immigration Crisis.
🔹Harvard-Harris poll indicates that 64% of registered voters think Pres. Biden should “issue new, stricter policies to reduce the flow of people across the border.”
🔹63% of Texas voters believe Kamala Harris’s appearance in El Paso recently had little purpose other than another worthless photo opportunity.
🔹The latest Fox News poll found that 54% of Americans disapprove of Pres. Biden’s handling of the border crisis.
“The State of Idaho proudly stands with our fellow Americans along the United States-Mexico border and will do what we can to protect the American people – Idahoans – against the damaging consequences of the inaction of the Biden-Harris Administration,” Gov. Brad Little said in a statement.
“Smuggling of drugs and illegal weapons, property destruction, and the daily influx of increasing numbers of illegal immigrants into our country are problems that are getting worse by the day,” he noted.
“It is time for our nation’s Governors to do what the federal government won’t – secure the border. Idaho is evaluating our resources, and I will have more to share with Idahoans about our support of this important call to protect our country.”
Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem tweeted on June 28, “Tomorrow morning I’m officially announcing up to 50 National Guard troops to Texas to help secure our border.”
“The Biden Administration has failed to keep America safe. We shouldn’t be making our own communities vulnerable by sending police to fix Biden’s border crisis.”
“My first responsibility is to the health and safety of Iowans and the humanitarian crisis at our nation’s southern border is affecting all 50 states,” Gov. Kim Reynolds said in a statement.
“The rise in drugs, human trafficking, and violent crime has become unsustainable,” she said. “Iowa has no choice but to act, and it’s why I am honoring Texas’ Emergency Management Assistance Compact following assurances from the Iowa Department of Public Safety that it will not compromise our ability to provide all necessary public safety services to Iowans.”
Reynolds noted the deciding point for her action came through skyrocketing amounts of illegal drugs coming into the state.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was the first state leader to response to the request for help from Texas and Arizona saying said no state is immune from the border crisis.
“America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American,” DeSantis said in a statement.
“The Biden Administration ended policies implemented by President Trump that were curbing illegal immigration, securing our border, and keeping Americans safe,” he stated.
“Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security. I’m proud to announce today that the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.”
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts soon followed saying his state would be sending about 25 Nebraska state troopers to Texas.
“Nebraska is stepping up to help Texas respond to the ongoing crisis on their border with Mexico,” he said in a statement.
“The disastrous policies of the Biden-Harris Administration created an immigration crisis on the border,” he noted. “While the federal government has fallen short in its response, Nebraska is happy to step up to provide assistance to Texas as they work to protect their communities and keep people safe.”
Georgia decided to send state troops too.
South Carolina troops are on the way.
Good neighboring state Oklahoma is sending troops.
Kentucky will also be joining other states lending support to protect the nation’s southern border, but their Democrat Gov. Andy Beshear put a political spin on his announcement Thursday.
Saying his commonwealth will deploy 220 National Guard members to the nation’s southern border–but not until October–he added, “This is a direct request from the federal government, from the Department of Homeland Security.”
Fifteen (15) states have prohibited proof-of-vaccination requirements at all or some levels of government: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
In 10 of those states, governors banned proof-of-vaccination requirements through executive orders. In the other five, legislators passed laws banning proof-of-vaccination requirements.
Additionally, five states have gone a step further. Alabama, Iowa, Montana, Texas, and Florida have extended bans on proof-of-vaccination requirements to some private businesses.
On the other hand liberal socialist leaning states, New York, Hawaii, and Oregon exempt fully-vaccinated individuals from some COVID-19 restrictions. To avoid the restrictions, they must provide proof of vaccination.
Sunday night, on his fifth rally of the day, President Donald J. Trump said this about Joe Biden:
“25 years ago he was not considered smart. Now he’s considered half of that.”
The enthusiastic crowd of thousands cheered.
“Wow! Not too loud. We don’t want to wake Sleepy Joe up.”
In conservative Wyoming, businesses are not boarding up. Instead patriotic Americans are peacefully out in force to be heard (with lines around the courthouse block, above). Meanwhile, in liberal cities, businesses are forced batten down the hatches because of Election Day.
Based on the freshest data through most of the evening and Monday morning, I can conclude the media is wrong and most Americans are right.
Here are my final projections for Tuesday’s outcome in the 2020 Presidential Election.
I came very close to placing Nevada in the leaning for Trump category. In my heart of hearts, I believe he will take Nevada, but I’m just too concerned about the corruption in Clark County (Las Vegas) when it comes to voter fraud.
With any state, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey especially, Trump has to have enough votes Tuesday to overcome the cheats. Trump said Sunday, they will have lawyers ready.
Eric Holder, the Obama-Soros-Biden Attorney General, is helping head up the 650+ attorneys scattered across the country ready to overburden the courts with Democrat motions.
Some analysis suggests New Mexico is close enough to be a toss up. I’m thinking if it was that close, Trump would have held a rally there. Plus, I don’t know anything about the ground game and support in that state. They are historically Democrat.
Maricopa County as of Sunday afternoon shows the Combined Early Vote:
Democracy Institute State Poll: Trump 49% Biden 45%
Today there are 300k+ more Republicans in Florida today than in 2016. Without those, he was still able to beat Hillary. As of Sunday night, about 560k Florida Republicans have not voted. Of that group, 276k are super voters (they always vote).
Democrats only have about 104k super voters left for Tuesday.

The counties to watch are Luzerne, Lackawanna, Erie and North Hampton.
Trump 49% (+2) Biden 47% Jorgensen 1%
Postal Inspectors in Butler and Westmoreland Counties are trying to determine why only half of the requested ballots mailed out have returned. This is very unusual for more than 25,000 to be missing in these heavily Trump counties.
Texas is not even purple except in liberal run cities. Houston and Harris County are notoriously corrupt.
Bexar County (San Antonio) will stay blue because the liberal machine will manufacture more votes as needed. But this election is different in that an increase in court battles have been fought and more fraudsters have been–or will be-arrested.
