A Fight For Our First Amendment Rights!

Written by Nancy Hayes

The RESTRICT ACT combined with Albert Sensors….What could possibly go wrong?

Most of us remember this famous Ronald Reagan quote: “The most horrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help”.

Unfortunately, the government doesn’t always tell us what we SHOULD know, but rather what they THINK we should know or what they WANT us to hear.

FIRST, THEY TOLD US THE 2020 ELECTIONS WERE THE MOST SECURE IN AMERICAN HISTORY! But according to recent Rasmussen surveys, “60% of likely US voters think it is likely that cheating affected the outcomes of some races in last year’s midterm elections.” Related to vote-by-mail ballots, “59% of those surveyed were concerned the increased use of voting by mail would lead to more voter fraud.”

THEN THEY SAID the NVRA would HELP states with voter roll maintenance. With the 1993 National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), or Motor Voter Act, our government told us we would have “simplified voter registration” through our Driver’s License Facilities, but government officials obviously did not think through all of the processes to exclude 16-year-old students with driver’s permits or noncitizens with temporary visitor driver’s licenses.

This is the same NVRA that requires states to remove ineligible voters with a “reasonable effort,” remember?

Here’s a flashback: In January 2020, Breitbart News reported,

“The Illinois Board of Elections confirmed this month that 574 non-citizens were improperly registered to vote, and 19 of those actually voted in the 2018 elections. The hundreds of non-citizens were kept on state voter rolls for more than 500 days before the Secretary of State’s office said the glitch was fixed.”

THEN they said HAVA would help by implementing Electronic Voting Machines. In 2002, our government told us we would have more “simplified voting” with the implementation of electronic voting machines. These machines would be standardized and certified by the Election Assistance Commission (EAC). What could go possibly go wrong?

Thinking back to 2020, they might say, “What’s all the fuss? So a few voting machines went down at the same time across most Republican counties in Maricopa County! It’s probably just a coincidence!”

It’s not that Illinois is exempt, either, with votes that were changed from Republican to Democrat. But calm down, it was just a minor calibration error.

THEN they told us ERIC would help us maintain our voter rolls. ERIC was supposed to work with our states to maintain voter rolls and support the Secretaries of State with elections, but that turned out to be nothing more than a left-wing voter registration drive.

THEN they told us the voting machines were NOT connected to the internet. So, we brought in the electronic voting machines….ESS, Hart InterCivic, Dominion, and later KnowINK pollbooks.

We believed them. After all, they were the experts. Pollbooks like BPro-KnowINK election software were implemented AND CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET across the country, and most if not all were NOT certified. It was even discovered that certain pollbooks backdated records.

What a surprise. But surely that only happened in New Mexico. Certainly, there aren’t any backdated records on voter rolls in Illinois or other states.  But don’t our machines have “encryption protection?” Oh, wait, that’s right, so did the voting machines in New Mexico, North Carolina, Hawaii, and Florida.

Imagine – none of KnowINK’s software is certified and there is NO oversight on it whatsoever! Add to that, all the data is stored in the Cloud. Who knows who has access to that data? And because of 3rd party vendors, it’s not like you can submit a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request to find out.

Then they told us CYBER SECURITY and ALBERT SENSORS protect your elections from being “hacked.” In 2018, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency called the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partnered with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) to provide cybersecurity services for state election entities.

Before you knew it, states were being pressured to install “Albert Sensors” in their networks so our government could “monitor” them.

At first, you might think, “Well, it’s about time, because we’ve heard about all the Russian “hacking” efforts. Russia, Russia, Russia.”

But then in 2020, CIS launched a new program for “verifying the security of non-voting election technology like electronic poll books, election night reporting, electronic ballot delivery, etc.”

But wait…there was a catch.

States signed off on a “Memorandum of Agreement” or MOA, which stated in part that the Secretary of State was required to give CIS a complete network diagram of the election systems, internet access to manage devices, a complete list of IP addresses of county computers, a list of servers, and much more. What could go wrong?!

In return, CIS monitors traffic going in and out of the state election networks and employs a system to detect “security threats.” This system is in most, if not all states by now.


It turns out the Albert Sensors detect more information than just elections and voting records. But surely our government would notify us if that were the case, right?

Just as (in theory) the government notifies states that we have illegal immigrants or noncitizens on our voter rolls, CIS sees and hears a lot more internet traffic than we will ever know. In fact, according to the MOA, the States must notify their employees and contractors that they “have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding communications or data transiting, stored on, or traveling to and from the Secretary of States/county systems.” All this information is being monitored.

But wait….there’s more.

If you asked your Secretary of State or your election officials about Albert Sensors, most would not even know what they are, let alone what they do!

These sensors can monitor all information going in and out of the county systems, as well as what our federal government calls “misinformation” and “disinformation.” Misinformation, as in suspicion of election fraud. Disinformation, as in concerns over election officials not following state statutes when it comes to voter verification at polling places.

One might ask, why would the federal government need to see what’s going on in local election offices over which it has no jurisdiction?

In most counties, citizens who know their Constitutional rights might consider this an infringement on our First Amendment rights.

Up until 2020, I have never seen such widespread citizen concern over the outcome of elections. Is this the government’s way of shutting down the narrative or applying internet censorship as they did with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube?

Are all the citizens who volunteered as poll workers or poll watchers, who witnessed wrongdoing in elections and violations of state statutes and have filed incident reports, now going to be called out as “violent domestic terrorists” or “violent insurrectionists?”

This much is true…our elections ARE exposed to the internet. Albert Sensors and real-time data, including the outcome of our elections, can be shared with third-party vendors and the federal government.

Between ERIC, CYBERSECURITY, and Albert Sensors, this sounds an awful lot like our elections are being controlled and centralized at the federal level.

This brings us back to President Reagan, who also said, “AS GOVERNMENT EXPANDS, Liberty contracts.”

The RESTRICT Act stands for Restricting the Emergence of Security Threats that Risk Information and Communications Technology.

Under the new RESTRICT Act, the Department of Commerce would identify information and communications technology products that a foreign adversary has any interest in or that pose an unacceptable risk to national security. The language is, of course, insanely broad. Any bill that would allow the U.S. government to BAN an online service that facilitates American speech raises serious First Amendment concerns.

The RESTRICT ACT restricts our FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS! It gives the government authority over ALL forms of communication.

As former U.S. Senator Ron Paul (R-Texas) states, the RESTRICT ACT is the “Patriot Act on Steroids.”

What’s ironic is that RESTRICT was introduced by the same corrupt Democrat Senator Mark Warner of the “Russian Collusion” investigation. That should tell you all you need to know.

Russia, Russia, Russia.

So for all the Trump supporters who found evidence of widespread voter fraud, such as in the case of Kari Lake’s race in Arizona, will their claims just be categorized as “baseless” or “disinformation?”

The government or media will continue to claim that there is no evidence of voting systems deleting voters, lost votes or ballots, or any changed votes. In fact, they will continue to claim that 2020 was “the most secure election in American history.”

Well, pardon me, but RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA.

Didn’t that all turn out to be a fake dossier? When do We, the People get to claim “disinformation?”

That brings us to another Ronald Reagan quote….
