5th Circuit Orders Engelbrecht & Phillips Jail Release


A Judiciary Actually Upholds Conservative Free Press Rights

According to a very small handful of Conservative reporting sites (the most known: The Epoch Times, 100PercentFedUp & The Gateway Pundit) Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips have been ordered released from jail by the 5th Circuit Appellate Court for bogus contempt charges by an idiot Judge that must of have failed 1st Amendment Free Press rules at his Bar Examine.

I say “small handful” because either no one else is reporting this epic news upholding Free Press sourcing or all the search engines are burying the info.

I’m cross posting The Epoch Times and the National File (which I only located on the Presearch Search Engine). Perhaps further updated info will garner a better search engine response – but my lack of trust for Big Tech means I won’t hold my breath.

PS: I was a bit surprised that neither The Epoch Times nor the National File mentioned Konnech CEO Eugene Yu (actually arrested for delivering U.S. Election data to the CCP) in the below cross posts. Especially puzzling because the National File an incriminating Yu article on November 1: “Examining Konnech CEO Eugene Yu’s Ties with BlackRock.”

Two leaders of True the Vote organization will be released from jail after an appeals court overruled a judge’s order that they be locked up.

Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips were ordered released by a panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit late Nov. 6.

“IT IS ORDERED that Petitioners’ opposed motion for release from detention is GRANTED pending further order of this court,” the panel said in the order, which was obtained by The Epoch Times.

The panel consisted of Circuit Judges Catharina Haynes, a George W. Bush appointee; Kurt Engelhardt, a Trump appointee; and Andrew Oldham, a Trump appointee.

Engelbrecht and Phillips were expected to be released on Nov. 7, a spokesman for True the Vote told The Epoch Times via email on Monday morning.

“They will be released when the paperwork is complete, probably sometime this morning,” the spokesman said.

Engelbrecht and Phillips were imprisoned on Oct. 31 after U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt, a Reagan appointee, found them in contempt of court for not revealing the identities of people who allegedly accessed information from Konnech, a Michigan-based election management software company whose founder was recently arrested for allegedly stealing poll worker data and hosting it on servers in China.

The order for confinement was to be in place until the defendants “fully comply” with an order that they reveal certain information, including the identities, Hoyt said.

Engelbrecht and Phillips say they passed on information that was legally obtained from Konnech to the FBI. One of their attorneys named one of the individuals in question, Mike Hasson, during an October hearing. But they have declined to share the name of the second person. Both the individuals are FBI informants, Phillips said during one hearing.

“Those who thought that imprisoning Gregg and I would weaken our resolve have gravely miscalculated. It is stronger than ever,” Engelbrecht said in a statement. “The right to free and fair elections without interference is more important than our own discomforts and even this detention, now reversed by a higher court.”

“We are profoundly grateful for that. We will continue to protect and defend those who do the vital work of election integrity, and we will make sure that their findings become a matter of public record,” she added.

The imprisonment order came after Konnech sued True the Vote and its founders for defamation.

Hoyt entered a temporary restraining order against the defendants, ordering them to return all property and data to Konnech and identify people who were involved in accessing the company’s computers.

In their filing for release from detention, Engelbrecht and Phillips said that Hoyt’s confinement order “represents a clear abuse of discretion and a manifest miscarriage of justice.”

“Petitioners pray that this Court enter an Order releasing them from the district court’s draconian order of detention for refusing to identity a federal confidential informant in open court whose identity in any event has no bearing on the merits of this defamation case hinging on competing accounts of alleged historical events,” they added.

The pair also said that they never possessed or controlled the information in question. Phillips said Engelbrecht does not know the name that he is withholding and that, if the name were revealed, the person’s life would “be jeopardized by border drug and smuggling cartels.”

In its opposition to the petition, Konnech said that the True the Vote founders were trying to “strip the District Court of its contempt power” and that they “have no one but themselves to blame for their confinement” after defying Hoyt’s order.

“Petitioners’ imprisonment is not an emergency especially in this case where the Petitioners are contemnors and recalcitrant witnesses who hold the keys to the jailhouse, and can free themselves immediately upon purging their contempt,” lawyers for the firm said.

Appeals Court Orders True The Vote Leaders to be Released From Jail

True The Vote leaders Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht after an appeals court overruled a contempt charge lobbied against the duo by a judge. The judge ordered the election integrity activists to name a confidential source, which they refused to do.

Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips were ordered released by a panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit late Sunday evening. “IT IS ORDERED that Petitioners’ opposed motion for release from detention is GRANTED pending further order of this court,” the panel said in its ruling.

The election watchdogs are expected to be released on Monday, November 7, a spokesman for True The Vote told the Epoch Times in an email. “They will be released when the paperwork is complete, probably sometime this morning,” the spokesman said.

Englebrecht and Phillips were previously taken into custody by U.S. Marshals on October 31. U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt found the pair in contempt of court for refusing to reveal the identities of sources who helped to assess information from Konnech Inc; the election software company whose CEO is being criminally charged for allegedly stealing U.S. election data and storing it in China.

Hoyt ordered them to be imprisoned for contempt until they “fully comply” with the order to disclose the source.

Investigative reporter was in court last week and witnessed the arrest. “It all comes down to this meeting in this Dallas hotel, where they were accessing, supposedly, the Konnech servers,” Webb said. “Catherine Engelbrecht [was] not at this meeting. Only Gregg Phillips [was]. [Phillips] said he’s a confidential informant. [Phillips] said this other gentleman named Mike Hasson, who was there, also is a confidential informant for the FBI,” Webb said in a video statement describing the arrest.

“The defense also said the other third person was also a confidential informant, they just don’t want to give up the name of the third person,” Webb said.

Catherine Engelbrecht released a statement shortly after the appeals court decision was announced.

“Those who thought that imprisoning Gregg and I would weaken our resolve have gravely miscalculated. It is stronger than ever,” she said. “The right to free and fair elections without interference is more important than our own discomforts and even this detention, now reversed by a higher court. We are profoundly grateful for that.”

“We will continue to protect and defend those who do the vital work of election integrity, and we will make sure that their findings become a matter of public record.”

‘2000 Mules’: The Film They Don’t Want You to See


Yesterday I posted an excellent audio Bitchute version of 2000 Mules largely because I heard Rumble was experiencing a digital attack over 2000 Mules. Today I discovered The Patriot Post addresses the Dem-Marxist fears behind their blackout censoring and Internet attacks on 2000 Mules under the title, “2000 Mules’: The Film They Don’t Want You to See.”

‘2000 Mules’: The Film They Don’t Want You to See

A new film makes a compelling case that the 2020 election wasn’t “the most secure election in history.”

The Patriot Post

Judging by its initial success, conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, “2000 Mules,” is getting folks’ attention despite the Left’s near-total news blackout of it. And frankly, we can’t blame them for wishing it would go away — because it makes them look like they stole a presidential election.

The film, which documents and corroborates claims of significant voter fraud in tightly contested swing states during the 2020 election, grossed more than $1 million in its first 12 hours of streaming on Rumble and subscription-based platform Locals.

This is the film Joe “81 Million Votes” Biden and his “most secure election in history” apologists and censors don’t want to talk about. And they definitely don’t want you to see it. But folks are seeing it anyway. According to Rumble, “The movie’s gross sales on Rumble and Locals, which began on Saturday at noon, are good enough to put ‘2000 Mules’ in the estimated box office top ten for the weekend of May 6th to May 8th.”

To anyone willing to think openly and honestly about it, the 2020 election was deeply suspect. COVID-inspired, Democrat-supported bulk-mail balloting made this an election unlike any other, and it opened the floodgates to potential ballot fraud — especially via the largely illegal practice of ballot harvesting, which is the collection, transportation, and delivering of any ballots other than one’s own.

To recap: The incumbent, Donald Trump, earned 12 million more votes than any Republican candidate in history and handily carried an astounding 18 of 19 “bellwether” counties across the nation, and yet still got seven million fewer votes than gaffe-prone, basement-bound, cognitively challenged Joe Biden — a guy whose candidacy was so awful, so utterly uninspiring, that in the primaries he finished a dismal fourth in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire before getting clobbered by 26 points in Nevada by Bernie Sanders. But somehow, Biden managed to haul in 81 million votes in the general.

 That’s more population-adjusted votes than a far younger, far more compelling, infinitely more charismatic Barack Obama got in 2008.

Something didn’t add up, but the mainstream media wasn’t about to go digging for it. Instead, that would be up to a private citizen, one Catherine Engelbrecht, who years ago founded True the Vote, a nonprofit election integrity organization. (For her efforts, she was repeatedly targeted and harassed by the Obama administration in the run-up to his 2012 reelection.)

The result of Engelbrecht’s digging is a film that puts the lie to the New York Times’s ridiculous front-page headline, published just after the 2020 vote: “Election Officials Nationwide Find No Fraud.” How on earth could the Times have known? How much time did its staff devote to a comprehensive nationwide forensic analysis of the 2020 vote? (That’s a rhetorical question.) As Newsweek reports:

Engelbrecht said her group [True the Vote] spent $1 million to obtain geospatial information from several marketing services that she agreed not to name and $20,000 to obtain video via open-records requests to counties and cities in five states where it appeared Trump was winning, until mail-in and drop-box ballots were counted: Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. From there, she says she and her staff cross-referenced the times and locations of the cell phones whose users visited multiple drop boxes with the 4 million minutes of video obtained from city and county governments.

All of this is chronicled in “2000 Mules,” in which D’Souza shows how True the Vote painstakingly used three trillion cellphone geotracking signals and surveillance video to reveal “a network of ‘mules’ in battleground states busily collecting ballots from get-out-the-vote NGOs and stuffing them, a few at a time, into multiple drop boxes in the dead of night.” The geotracking signals obtained were those near drop boxes and also near election nonprofits from October 1, 2020, through to the election on November 3, and through the Georgia runoff date of January 6, 2021.

As The New York Post’s Miranda Devine writes: “The data pattern is unmistakable, as D’Souza shows a spider web of routes taken by various mules between NGOs and drop boxes. For each of the 2,000 mules the average number of drop box visits was 38, with an average five ballots deposited per visit. That’s 380,000 suspect votes.”

Remember: Only 43,000 votes decided the election in the three battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin. And this process of “ballot trafficking” is how the Democrats carried it off.

Their best defense? A weak and deeply denialist statement from their water carriers at PolitiFact, which complains about “dramatic horror movie music with grainy video footage.”

We’re happy to let you decide whose account is more plausible.

In the meantime, though, let’s keep an eye on the Democrats — specifically, whether they’ll try to run the same bulk-mail ballot scheme during November’s midterm elections. All it’ll take is another good COVID scare.


Updated to include specific data on the average number of drop-box visits and ballot deposits by the mules.

2000 Mules – A Bitchute Version


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© May 9, 2022

The Documentary 2000 Mules has ended in theatres. You can now catch it on video services. YOU as a voter should find it interesting there has been a huge Leftist push to suppress and censor access to viewing 2000 Mules because it demonstrates WITHOUT A DOUBT there was a criminal ELECTION COUP in a America in 2020. I am showing the Dinesh D’Souza link to 2000 Mules with the hope people will toss some financial appreciation to D’Souza, however it is fascinating my browser freezes up every time I go there. Perhaps you will have better luck: https://2000mules.com/.

I have noticed the Leftist so-called Fact Checkers have already begun the “DON’T BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE, RATHER BELIEVE WHAT WE TELL YOU” campaign. If you are a gullible who thinks your political party’s fundamental transformation of America is a good thing, you probably go into full sheeple-mode and believe your Leftist Fact Checker LIARS.

If you are a Bible-Believing and American Founding Documents supporting American despising the Dem-Marxist transformation into tyranny, TAKE HEED TO 2000 Mules!

Bitchute VIDEO: 2000 MULES; HOW THEY STOLE THE 2020 ELECTION

Posted by WORLDTVnews

First Published May 8th, 2022 13:07 UTC

THIS IS THE FULL 2000 MULES DOCUMENTARY WITH GREAT AUDIO.

“2000 Mules,” a documentary film created by Dinesh D’Souza, exposes widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election, sufficient to change the overall outcome. Drawing on research provided by the election integrity group True the Vote, “2000 Mules” offers two types of evidence: geotracking and video. The geotracking evidence, based on a database of 10 trillion cell phone pings, exposes an elaborate network of paid professional operatives called mules delivering fraudulent and illegal votes to mail-in dropboxes in the five key states where the election was decided. Video evidence, obtained from official surveillance cameras installed by the states themselves, confirms the geotracking evidence. The movie concludes by exploring numerous ways to prevent the fraud from happening again.
