The June 14 “2000 Mules” event was a huge success.  Thanks so much for the organizers and all of you who attended!

We had 180 people watch the movie at 5:00.  After the movie, we had 230 people listen to Catherine Engelbrecht, co-developer of the film, came to Fernandina Beach to explain how we got here, the truth about the movie, and what we MUST do with this information.

True the Vote founder and president Catherine Engelbrecht

Engelbrecht is president of the national election watchdog group, True the Vote. The organization teamed with filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and used research on cell phone data tracking to tell the story of “2000 Mules.” The movie portrays the movement of “mules”—people presumably being paid for their work to carry ballots from politically motivated non-profits to drop boxes in densely Democratic urban areas in the swing states of Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia – and the big kahuna – Pennsylvania.

Earlier in the day, Engelbrecht met with Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper and Florida State Senator Aaron Bean.  At the event, Nassau County Supervisor of Elections Janet Adkins was in the audience to hear directly about election fraud was discovered in the movie.

The key take-away message that Engelbrecht delivered was “we have the proof, now it is time for local citizens and law enforcement to take action”. 

Catherine Engelbrecht’s story. 

Engelbrecht started True the Vote 12 years ago seeking to challenge election irregularities that were going on in Texas.  After enough challenges, she was on the radar screen – a target actually – of 5 government agencies who audited her books 23 times.  Finally, she decided to sue the IRS, who at the time, was attacking conservative 503 (c) 3 organizations.  She sued the IRS and won a $2 million judgement in 2019.  To date, the IRS has never paid her the judgement.  Fast forward to present day.  After seeing the key changes being pushed through ahead of the 2020 election – 100% mail out ballots, drop boxes, NGO massive funding and watering down signature verification – they had a roadmap to investigating how election fraud may have happened.  Then came the movie.

Movie debunked?  NOT!

You may have heard news services attempt to debunk the movie.  Why no more video?  Can we trust cellphone tracking?  Was this just the mules’ normal day?  Even former attorney general Bill Barr laughed off the seriousness of the proof delivered in the movie. 

Here are some answers to the debunkers that Engelbrecht shared.  Regarding videos, many districts either did not install video as required, delivered unusable quality, deleted videos before statutory holding requirements, pointed the video at the ground or claimed that they had none.  Even with these challenges, there is still a great deal of video that is time and location synced with the cell phone data.

Regarding cell phone tracking.  The cell phone tracking tools used in 2000 Mules were the same technique used to identify a murder in Atlanta in a cold case that was 4 months old, same techniques used to track down protesters at the capital on January 6th .  These techniques are proven and widely used in law enforcement.   The precision of cell phone ping data today is very sophisticated and precise in some case to within VERY VERY small areas.

Mule travel patterns were compared prior to the election, after the election and during the election period to specifically ensure that the election pattern was NOT consistent with prior patterns or after election patterns and not just their normal daily routes.

Regarding Bill Barr, the former Attorney General in the Trump Administration and natorious election fraud naysayer, dismissed the movie’s conclusions in the film. Typically, when indication of a crime is presented, a law enforcement official or officer would seek additional corroborating information to prove or disprove the accusation.  In Barr’s this case, it seems that the evidence presented was dismissed out of hand without any research, any questions, any curiosity or any due diligence to prove or disprove.  Interesting….

In conclusion, the debunkers seem to be just naysayers without real questions.  The good news is that within a few weeks “Project Ripcord” will be released.  This is when all of the data behind the movie will be released to the public.  Videos, cell phone pings and more.  All of it for the American people to research, digest and make their own conclusions as the facts.  This will put pressure on local law enforcement to act.  Maybe national law enforcement also. 

What we must do with this information.

The call to action from Engelbrecht was very clear – you have the proof of election fraud, it needs to be addressed in each county through local sheriffs and local attorney generals driven by the will of the people.  We must all get involved.  Ask questions.  Demand action.  Watch the next election. 

I am personally asking you to sign up as an Ambassador/Volunteer with CCDF to launch our County Chapter.  We need your help.  Our local teams are forming and working to protect the community – schools, elections and following the money.  Go to the www.CCDFUSA.com  web site and type “Nassau”.  Register to be a part of our local team as an Ambassador.  We are providing Local Insight and taking Local Action.  We need to community to help with the mission locally.  We support the American values of Freedom – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – and the founding documents.  We are nonpartisan.  We are not afraid to express our faith as did our founding fathers.
