For decades the Democrats and leftists have fought ferociously to prevent the cleanup of State voter registration rolls. Recognizing a potential niche, left wing activists created ERIC to clean voter rolls their way, using their rules. So in 2012 the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States. ERIC is essentially a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up. But it’s been gaining traction in Red States too. Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus D.C. A top election official from each member State is appointed a seat on the ERIC Board or as an Officer, all unpaid positions.
ERIC located 17 million new voters for the 2020 election, the most in the history of their organization. For comparison, they only found 5.7 million in 2012, Obama’s reelection.
The ERIC database is comprehensive and would be one of the most coveted by bad actors looking to influence an election. Member States must not only submit all details on inactive and active voters to ERIC every 60 days. But they must also provide every individual in their states Motor Vehicle Department database, both licensed and ID recipients. This combo of data is breathtaking. It’s everyone who could generate a legal ballot. It includes those approaching voting age, even those here illegally yet issued an ID by their left leaning State. This data includes names, addresses, DOB, License #, last 4 of social #, voter activity, phone, email, title and type of citizenship documentation, and much more!
ERIC doesn’t just manage lists, they demand action. But it’s not the action you would expect, like cleaning voter rolls. ERIC provides each member State a targeted list of people that are not registered to vote. The Membership Bylaws require the State to contact at least 95% of these people within 90 days, soliciting them to register. ERIC also wants specific registration profiles updated and requires the State to contact these voters within 90 days too. It’s essentially a left wing voter registration drive all paid for by the States, not the Democrat Party. The membership fee is $25,000 but costs can run into the millions to fund the activities and membership dues.
Oddly, ERIC has no requirement or mandate that member States clean up their voter rolls. States are only “strongly encouraged” to request ERIC’s voter updates at least once a year. If a member fails to make a request in 425 days, the data will be sent automatically. What’s even more odd, and seemingly corrupt, is that ERIC does NOT want to know who is voting illegally. Their rules explain that “Under no circumstances shall the members transmit any record indicating an individual is a non-citizen of the U.S.” as stated in Exhibit A, 2b. If ERIC hears no evil, then they see no evil.
ERIC uses advanced technology including Artificial Intelligence from Senzing. This data matching AI compares information collected by member states with USPS address data and Social Security death records. But no one knows how else this data collected from the 31 States is being used. J. Christian Adams recently discussed ERIC in a Breitbart podcast interview (starts 1:16:50). Adams says: “That’s part of the smoke screen. ERIC learns who gets registered from their program, so they’re able to micro target with whoever is partnered with ERIC. We don’t know who their interfacing all this data with. It could be Catalist, the massive Democrat database organization. We just don’t know. I’ve talked to some ERIC Board Members who are Secretary of States. They don’t even know what ERIC is doing. They’ve asked questions and can’t get answers.”
ERIC demands additional data, like the total number of provisional ballots cast (See Exhibit B&C). They. They want totals of provisional ballots counted, provisional’s uncounted, and why. They want to know who registered or updated their data, then voted that same day. They require data on those who registered using paper and those using electronic methods. They also want a list of all individuals in other agencies that perform voter registration functions. This includes staff in Public Libraries, Department of Public Safety, Unemployment, Dept of Health, Social Services, and so on.
Member States are currently using ERIC to hide their list maintenance data, citing it violates their ERIC contracts, even though Federal law mandates it be made public. The 1993 NVRA (Motor Voter) law includes a “Public Disclosure Provision” which allows the public inspection of “voter list maintenance records”. The Public Interest Legal Foundation with J. Christian Adams recently sued the District of Columbia for this exact reason. They expect to sue other States as well. Those leading election audits should demand “Voter List Maintenance Records” by citing the Federal law U.S.C. 20507(i)(1) and not use the weaker FOIA requests for maintenance records. See DC case for details.
ERIC was funded by an “anonymous” donor and The Pew Center On The States. This grant was provided by the George Soros Open Society. David Becker, an experienced Democrat election lawyer, left the Justice Department to create the ERIC architecture. Originally a blue State project, ERIC had 11 member states by 2014 and 22 by 2017. ERIC has not published an annual report since 2017, almost 5 years ago. Becker, who still has a seat on the ERIC board, went on to create the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) in 2016. He distributed $69.5 million in grants from Zuckerberg for the 2020 election using similar methods as CTCL.
J. Christian Adams from PILF explains: “The history of ERIC is important. Kansas State Cross Check was a group of States doing this for free. This caused leftists to go wild. They sued Cross Check participant States, particularly Indiana, and got court orders to basically shut down Cross Check. There’s no longer a competitor to ERIC. Once this happened, red states started joining ERIC like GA, FL, TX. This is what really opened the flood gates to ERIC’s power. If a State like Georgia wants to know who’s registered in both Louisiana and Georgia, there’s no one else.
Mr. Adams also says: “One thing we do know is ERIC is hiding the facts about how States are making these decisions. It’s a system breakdown. It’s a leveraging of power of who writes the rules. It’s not just outright cheating, it’s way more sophisticated involving who has power, who can see records, who gets to vote, and who are the observers. It’s (ERIC) a comprehensive suite manipulating the process. And it’s not always cheating. Sometimes it’s totally legal what they do.”
In 2016, leaked funding documents showed Soros money, partnered with the Rockefeller Family Fund, was used to push changes to voter registration policies at the national level. Soros also gave money to Pew Center On The States for voter list maintenance practices favorable to Soros at the state level. Soros also funded the Brennan Center for Justice and the Advancement Project. These two groups became the loudest voices in opposing election integrity and STOPPING any effort that would ensure only U.S. citizens vote.
Nevada: Dems Shell Out Millions in Effort to Stop Trump-Backed Joe Lombardo in the GOP Primary
Democrat Super PACs are shelling out millions in an effort to stop Trump-backed gubernatorial candidate Joe Lombardo in Nevada. Democrat donors have contributed to numerous newly registered PACs that have been attacking the Clark County Sheriff.
Lombardo, who recently received a Trump endorsement, leads the GOP primary field by about 20 points, according to a recent poll.
“As Governor, Joe will fiercely Protect our under-siege Second Amendment, Oppose Sanctuary Cities, Support our Law Enforcement, Veto any Liberal Tax Increase, Protect Life, and Secure our Elections,” former President Trump wrote in an endorsement statement. “Joe Lombardo is the leader Nevada needs, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement for Governor!”

Since Trump announced his endorsement of Joe Lombardo in late April, Democrats have poured millions into newly registered super PACs geared towards attack campaigns. One example would be the “Stronger Nevada” PAC, has pledged to spend $2.1 million on Lombardo down the stretch of the primary campaign.
Stronger Nevada has no social media presence or website but is reportedly linked to the Democrat Governors Association, according to Breitbart News. In addition, the PAC’s staff includes two Democratic party operatives in Andrew Whalen and Jillian Edelman.
Another PAC, “Patriot Freedom Fund”, is run by the husband of progressive Nevada Assemblywoman Sandra Jauregui. Patriot Freedom Fund sends mailers to Nevada Republicans falsely accusing Joe Lombardo of being soft on the Second Amendment, Breitbart News reported.
Both PACs were registered with Nevada’s Secretary of State after the first quarter fundraising deadline, which means their financial information will not be revealed until after the election.
Nevada GOP Chairman Michael J. McDonald condemned state Democrats for using “sleazy, shady stunts to sow chaos in our Republican primary.”
“Truman Fleming is the husband of the biggest advocate for gun control in the legislature,” McDonald said. “If Assemblywoman Jauregui was aware of this attack and gave her husband her blessing, she’s proven to no longer be fit to serve in the legislature.”
Nevada Governor Brian Sisolak, a Democrat, is seeking his second term in November.
The state has voted for the Democratic candidate in presidential elections since 2008, when Barrack Obama flipped the state. That may soon change, however, as Donald Trump leads Joe Biden by 10 in a hypothetical 2020 rematch, according to a recent poll.
Providence to Use Federal COVID Relief Funds for Reparations
Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza plans to use the city’s federal COVID-19 relief funds for racial reparations. On Friday, the mayor signed a spending plan for $124 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that will pave the way for the city to invest tens of millions of dollars into housing and infrastructure projects. Elorza has not ruled out direct payments for eligible individuals, which would include black Americans, as well as those who can prove Native American heritage.
“As a housing crisis persists across the state, the city is allocating $30.7 million to the issue, $17 million of which will go toward developing affordable units,” reported The Providence Journal. “The remainder of the category will be spent on rapid rehousing, permanent supportive housing, emergency housing, a home repair program and other initiatives.”
During a news conference on Friday, Esparza said spending decisions were driven by public input sought by the city’s COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency Task Force, which was commissioned in January.
Addressing housing and homelessness was identified as a top priority by Providence respondents in a survey asking how American Rescue Plan funds should be spent, according to the city government. Input from “residents who participated in community meetings” was also weighed heavily.
Esparza justifies his city’s use of American Rescue Plan funds — which were allocated to states and municipalities by the federal government in order to deal with the economic fallout of pandemic lockdowns — by claiming the money is going to communities that were “hardest hit” by the virus. The “hardest hit” communities, according to the Providence city government, are populated by African Americans.
“We made it a point to go to those hardest hit neighborhoods and hardest hit communities and get an over-representative sample from those folks as well,” the mayor said. “But it still did not change the fundamental reality that regardless of where you are throughout the city, we have the same priorities.”
$10 million of the $124 million spending package will be going towards a racial reparations program in Providence. A committee will decide how exactly the funds will be spent, but the mayor has not ruled out direct payments to eligible recipients.
A 13-member panel has been tasked with examining reparation work being done in other municipalities and creating recommendations for ways the city can distribute the funds. NAACP Providence President Jim Vincent is among those already tapped to serve on the board, Elorza said.
“While we know the city alone cannot repair the full scope of harm, today’s action brings us another step closer to addressing the disparities our African heritage and Indigenous residents continue to face,” the mayor said in a written statement.
The Providence city government commissioned the reparations committee in 2020.
SoCal Jewelry Store Employees Fight Off Hammer-Wielding Smash-and-Grab Thieves with Their Own Fists! (VIDEO)
Orange County, California – Huntington Beach jewelry store employees on Sunday repelled smash-and-grab thieves with their own bare fists.
Surveillance footage shows thieves armed with hammers entering Princess Bride Diamonds at the Bella Terra mall at about noon.
The brave employees jumped into action immediately after one of the hooded thieves smashed a display case with a hammer and began punching and kicking the robbers.
Two of the employees are a brother and sister who work for the family business, KTLA 5 reported.
One of the female employees hit a robber over the head with a chair.
The thieves were stunned and eventually forced to retreat.
It is unclear if they took off with any stolen merchandise.
KTLA 5 interviewed the jewelry store employees after the melee.
“At some point while I was fighting them, one of them actually hit me in the head with a hammer, on the side of my left temple, but I didn’t even register it until after they left because there was so much like adrenaline going on,” employee Dallas Baca said.
