UNM students to be expelled by Sept. 30 if they reject the jab

According to an email sent to all students at the University of New Mexico, students are threatened with immediate expulsion if they do not get forcibly jabbed with the COVID-19 inoculation. 

“The consequences for failing to comply with the Administrative Mandate on Required COVID-19  Vaccination are disenrollment from the University and a registration hold,” the email, which was sent by associate provost for student success Dr. Pamela Cheek said.

“Students have until September 30, 2021, to comply with the mandate. Students who have not complied with the mandate will receive notice of pending disenrollment and registration hold beginning October 1, 2021 and will receive notice of finalized disenrollment on or after November 5, 2021.”

Cheek adds, “To be fully vaccinated by September 30, 2021, students will want to receive their first dose of two-dose vaccinations no later than September 9, 2021. UNM is offering the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at its vaccination clinics in the Student Union Building atrium weekdays from 10am – 2pm throughout the month of September.” 

“COVID-19 vaccination is also available at a variety of New Mexico locations and may be scheduled through the NMDOH vaccination website.” 

The forcible inoculation of students at UNM is just one of the many harsh penalties installed in New Mexico, most of them being attributed to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has reimposed a strict indoor mask mandate, forced the vaccination of medical workers, and is making children wear masks all day at school, among other things.

Pueblos’ redistricting map would oust only Native American NM congresswoman

19 Native American pueblos and the Jicarilla Apache Nation have submitted congressional redistricting plans to the Citizens Redistricting Committee, which ironically would likely oust current Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell — a Native American member of the Cherokee Nation.

“This effort reflects not only an understanding of the importance of tribal involvement in the redistricting process, but more importantly, the need to protect our cherished right to vote,” claimed Wilfred Herrera Jr., governor of Laguna Pueblo and chairman of the All Pueblo Council of Governors.

As reported by the Albuquerque Journal:

The proposed congressional map would dramatically reshape the 1st Congressional District, currently in Albuquerque and the East Mountains.

Southwestern Albuquerque and the South Valley would become part of the southern New Mexico-based 2nd Congressional District.

The 1st Congressional District, meanwhile, would cover parts of Rio Rancho and Albuquerque, and swing down to pick up Soccoro.

The plan would also make the Third Congressional District span all the way from San Juan County down to Chaves County. Native Americans would make up 17% of the voting-age population in the District. 

The proposal putting the South Valley of Albuquerque into the Second District would break up the constituency and swing the Second District to become Democrat-controlled, pushing Native American Rep. Herrell out of power. Similar proposals by far-left fringe groups eerily mirror those of the Native American pueblos, which would, in bad faith, sway all New Mexico’s districts to be Democrat-controlled. 

The tribal nations claim they “worked hard to maintain tribal voting power, develop new voting districts with Native American influence, and to bring New Mexico closer to parity after a century of voter disenfranchisement and suppression.”

Read all the charges on Sheryl Williams Stapleton’s grand jury indictment

Ex-state Rep. and Democrat Majority Leader (the second highest-ranking member of the New Mexico House) Sheryl Williams Stapleton (D-Bernalillo) has been embroiled in scandal ever since it was revealed in July she had been allegedly embezzling around $1 million from New Mexico’s taxpayers — specifically New Mexico’s Children through the Albuquerque Public Schools, where she used to work. 

The Piñon Post’s exclusive report uncovering her ties to other high-profile New Mexico Democrats has revealed Stapleton’s alleged graft has been going on for around 30 years, in tandem with Joseph Johnson, a shady former New Mexico secretary of health who also has previously been hit with bribery and fraud charges.

On Monday, Stapleton was indicted on 28 counts. Here they are, per ABQ Raw:

The charges include 10 counts of improper statutory citations ranging from second to fourth-degree felonies, two counts of violating the ethical principles of public service, both misdemeanors, nine counts of engaging in official acts for personal gain, all of them being fourth-degree felonies, at least one count of tax evasion (a fourth-degree felony), among others. 

The lengthy grand jury indictment is bad news for Stapleton, who claims she is innocent, per her attorney, despite the crippling evidence against her. But her past record of bad-faith actions in office does not exactly show a gleaming record.

In 2011, Larry Barker of KRQE 13 News found that Stapleton “pocketed more than $100,000 — money she didn’t earn — from APS over the years while serving in the legislature. But instead of being punished or forced to pay it back, Superintendent Winston Brooks changed the rules for Stapleton.” Brooks dismissed Stapleton’s $167,000 worth of unauthorized leave from APS, saying, “What I did was I changed the employee handbook so that anyone can be a legislator in Santa Fe and be paid for it.” 

In 2018, former Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission executive director Kimberly Greene and former employees Cheryl Yazzie and Charles Countee pleaded guilty to fraud and embezzlement charges by creating phony state vouchers to heist over $67,700 from the Commission. According to Greene, she claims she “was coerced by [then]-House Minority Whip Sheryl Williams Stapleton, D-Albuquerque, to enter into a no-bid contract with eRead, an outside contractor for ACT/SAT program,” according to the New Mexico Political Report. However, Stapleton claimed, “I was never involved, never spoke to anybody about a no-bid contract.”

Now, New Mexicans will see if justice exists in New Mexico’s justice system, with many former corrupt elected officials have gotten off easy with probation, parole, and little, if any jail time. Maybe 30 years’ worth of alleged corruption in Stapleton’s case will force the justice system to make an example of her.

BernCo Sheriff Gonzales receives slew of GOP endorsements

Over the weekend, Bernalillo County Sheriff Manny Gonzales, one of the two Democrats running for the Albuquerque mayorship received a slew of Republican endorsements from high-profile current and former public officials.

Albuquerque City Councilor Trudy Jones, a Republican, was the first of the slew of endorsements, writing, “Sheriff Manny Gonzales is a strong fiscal conservative who will help us rein in wasteful government spending and ensure we focus government spending on basic services. Sheriff Gonzales will make fighting crime and homelessness a top priority. I enthusiastically endorse Manny Gonzales for Mayor.” 

Jones has been known to be one of the most conservative members of the Albuquerque City Council and her endorsement of the Sheriff may add more credibility to the Democrat’s race. 

Former state Auditor Wayne Johnson, who served in the position following Tim Keller’s abdication of the role to successfully run for Albuquerque mayor in 2017, also endorsed Gonzales. He wrote, “Sheriff Gonzales has spent his career keeping residents of Bernalillo County safe, even as crime in Albuquerque spiraled out of control. He’s a strong leader who works with everyone who wants to make their community better and safer. I worked with Manny as a Bernalillo County Commissioner and am proud to endorse him for mayor.”

Another Republican, former Secretary of State Brad Winter wrote, “Sheriff Manny Gonzales has earned a reputation as being an honest, tough-on-crime lawman. He’s born and raised in Albuquerque and honorably served in the Marine Corps. For Manny, it has always been about serving his fellow citizens. Manny is exactly the type of leader we need right now in Albuquerque and I’m proud to endorse him for Mayor.”

Gonzales, who is the only law enforcer and the only military veteran in the race, has fought a toxic campaign between the three major candidates in the running, with his unsuccessful battle to receive public financing after a strung-out lawsuit filed by Keller.

After the slew of losses in court, Gonzales has turned to fundraising, saying on September 17 that his campaign had already raised $100,000 in 72 hours. Gonzales formerly endorsed Keller in his race for mayor in 2017 and endorsed Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for governor in 2018. However, he claims he made a mistake with the endorsement. He did, however, partner with the Trump administration to fight crime in Albuquerque.

Gonzales faces Keller and one Republican opponent, Eddy Aragon, a radio show host. Aragon has made note that he is the only Republican running in the race, and his campaign has even pressured other Republican public officials, some of whom do not even live in the Albuquerque area, to endorse him via his surrogates on Twitter. Aragon has also been critical of Gonzales’ campaign manager, who appears to be a far-leftist. He is running on a “five C’s” platform of “Corruption, Commerce, City, Covid, and Crime.” Retired Brigadier General Greg Zanetti, a Republican gubernatorial candidate, has endorsed Aragon in the race.

Keller is in stark contrast to both Aragon and Gonzales, running on a hard-left ticket. His record includes defunding the police and replacing some outgoing 911 calls with social workers, spending $30,000 on a rainbow crosswalk, achieving the most annual homicides in Albuqurque in history, and championing abortion up-to-birth and infanticide. Keller is endorsed by the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Even if you hate Alexis’ guts, rank her as 2nd choice anyway on Election Day

When it comes to politics in New Mexico, Santa Fe is considered a Democratic stronghold. With 71% of the county voting overwhelmingly  Democratic and only 22.3% voting Republican in the last election, one would find it hard to believe that a conservative would even have a chance at winning the capital city’s top job as mayor. However, the actions of the incumbent mayor Alan Webber can change that. 

Webber has been widely criticized by Santa Fe’s majority Hispanic population and some of his former supporters for his refusal to protect the  Soldiers Monument which was destroyed by violent thugs in 2020. To make matters worse, his Santa Fe Police Department was told to stand down. He  also partnered with out-of-town organizations to rip down culturally 

significant Hispanic and Catholic artifacts through a Marxist “Culture,  History, Art, Reconciliation” commission or the CHART committee. 

Webber argues that the monument’s destruction prevented wider unrest in Santa Fe despite multiple Hispanic cultural artifacts and monuments having been vandalized by domestic terrorists targeting Catholics and Hispanics such as the Cross of the Martyrs and the Kit Carson monument. 

Not only that, crime has skyrocketed and homelessness is getting worse.  

It’s safe to say, in my opinion, that the mayor is not very popular in his own city and will more than likely lose reelection on November 2nd. Although the mayor has opposition from sitting councilwoman JoAnne Vigil Cobbler, she seems to be no different from the sitting mayor as she voted for the Marxist CHART  committee. 

So who is the one that can make Santa Fe a beautiful place again? Who is the one who preserves Santa Fe’s unique and beautiful culture? Who is the one who can save Santa Fe from becoming the next Portland or San  Francisco? 

That person is Alexis Martinez Johnson. 

Alexis is a mom, wife, and environmental engineer who understands  Santa Fe is in desperate need of change. When she ran for Congress in  2020, despite only receiving 11% of the pre-primary delegate vote for the  Republican nomination, she received 36.7% of the 44,795 votes cast in the primary election as the winner.

Although Alexis lost in the general election, she gained 41% of the 317,448  votes cast — a record number for a Republican in District 3’s history — as she crossed party lines. She is the only centrist candidate in the mayoral race. 

Her career experience includes working as an environmental engineer &  consultant in areas such as hydrogeological investigations, wastewater management, water conservation, and environmental site assessments. 

She is someone who is steadfast in getting results and representing all voices no matter what political affiliation. 

As mayor, she will never shut down small businesses and she will never let violent extremists destroy monuments that are important to the community. She will focus on stopping Santa Fe’s rising crime rate,  preserve Santa Fe’s culture, and focus on homelessness without Santa Fe becoming a safe haven like liberal cities.

City Councilor JoAnne Vigil Coppler and Webber, both running for the mayorship, claim they will focus on all these issues despite doing nothing while they were in office. They’re two sides of the same coin. 

While Webber would let Santa Fe quickly become his hometown of  Portland, Vigil Coppler would let Santa Fe go in the same direction, but slower. 

Alexis is the only candidate who will make Santa Fe that sparkling place again. She will represent all voices in Santa Fe and not just play politics for personal gain. 

On November 2nd, rank her as 1st or 2nd choice when you go to the polling place. Even if you hate Alexis’ guts, rank her as 2nd choice anyway. Elect Alexis and save Santa Fe!

Michelle Garcia Holmes announces candidacy for CD-1

On Saturday, Republican Michelle Garcia Holmes, a former law enforcer and congressional candidate announced her candidacy for the First Congressional District to challenge incumbent Rep. Melanie Stansbury who won a special election by defeating Republican nominee Mark Moores. 

Holmes has 30 years of experience as a commissioned law enforcement officer. She served as chief of staff for Attorney General Gary King and says she “is a strong advocate for children and families.”

“I have a solid life long record of fighting for New Mexico’s citizens.  I will be a leader who listens – one with the vision to make the changes we need – and someone who will not quit fighting to support working families, our business community, our veterans and seniors.  The people of New Mexico will be my number one priority,” she said in a press release.

Garcia Holmes touts her work for the Attorney General’s office, where she “oversaw cross-cultural projects to educate New Mexicans on the dangers of methamphetamine. She also worked on collaborative efforts to fight government corruption, starting New Mexico’s first Government Accountability Division.  Garcia Holmes also worked to pass New Mexico’s first anti-human trafficking law and tougher Child Pornography laws,” the candidate declared.

“We need to get past pandemic shutdowns. Let’s focus on addressing our State’s economic needs; let’s fight the crime wave that has overwhelmed us. Let’s embrace the value of a hard day’s work, just like our parents did. I will work hard to make New Mexico safe and economically strong,” she said.

“I am running for Congress because we need leaders in Washington who will support our seniors and Veterans. The present leadership is out of touch with our citizens’ needs. I will bring people together and get us moving in the right direction,” she added.

Garcia Holmes is the first Republican to throw their hat in the ring to challenge Stansbury. Stansbury is a far-left extremist who demeaned Native Americans, telling displaced Dinè workers to go “sell your art or your wool.” Stansbury supports defunding the police, crippling the economy with the Green New Deal, full-term abortion, among other extremist views.

NM ethics board rejects Lujan Grisham’s attempt to dismiss complaint

On Thursday, the New Mexico State Ethics Commission’s hearing officer, retired Judge James S. Starzynski, denied Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign’s motion to dismiss an ethics complaint filed by Piñon Post editor and founder John Block regarding the Governor’s spending of thousands of campaign dollars to her daughter for hair and makeup. The campaign reported these expenses as “media preparation.”

The motion to dismiss by Lujan Grisham’s campaign, New Mexicans for Michelle (NMFM), claimed Block had no “actual knowledge” of the details of the complaint and that because the Ethics Commission signed a joint powers agreement with the Secretary of State (SoS), that it had no authority to rule. The Secretary of State’s office previously claimed the use of the funds was legitimate, despite state law and the SoS’s own guidelines saying exactly the opposite.

In response to the motion to dismiss, Block wrote, “The law clearly states, ‘The commission may share jurisdiction with other public agencies having authority to act on a complaint or any aspect of a complaint.’ … According to the Joint Powers Agreement signed by the Secretary of State’s office and the State Ethics Commission, the Ethics Commission does, in fact, have the authority to investigate this complaint and any such argument from the respondent’s council otherwise is an attempt to usurp… the Commission’s authoritative duties enacted by the Legislature.” 

Block added in his response letter that attempts at poking holes in what he believes to be a clear-cut case just “undermines New Mexicans for Michelle’s frail argument, which is bound together by obscure interpretations of state law and conjecture.”

In a prior jurisdiction determination following the motion and Block’s response, Ethics Commission Executive Director Jeremy Farris said the Lujan Grisham campaign’s “argument is unconvincing.  The Commission did not decline to exercise its jurisdiction over this matter.”

Now, Lujan Grisham is facing another blow from Starzynski, who wrote the following in his September 16 ruling:

NMFM correctly points out that the State Ethics Commission Act requires Block to have “actual knowledge of the alleged ethics violation”, that is, of the facts upon which he relies in his Complaint. See NMSA 10-16G-10(A).  It thus argues that  “Block did not have actual knowledge of the purposes of the expenditures he claims were impermissible,” and therefore lacked the actual knowledge required to submit a complaint to the Commission. See Motion at 7. Instead, NMFM argues that Block only “reviewed publicly filed campaign reports, found expenditures for hair and make-up, then used public records of the Governor’s calendars to conjure up events that he believed were related to the expenditures.” Id. 

To begin with, NMFM’s listing of the payment of $1,040.00 for “media preparation” can be construed as an admission of the activity in question.  Erin Grisham’s statement in her LinkedIn profile (as recited by Block in the Complaint 7) that she provides services as the “stylist and cosmetology consultant for Michelle Lujan Grisham for Governor”, see Complaint at 2, serves as another admission by one of the participants in the alleged campaign violation.  In consequence, reading those admissions provides [Block] the “actual knowledge” he needs to file the Complaint.  

Actual knowledge” is defined as “[d]irect and clear knowledge, as distinguished from constructive knowledge[.]” Black’s Law Dictionary (11th ed. 2019). Courts generally discuss the term in the context of determining whether a party’s knowledge of some fact or condition triggers (or defeats) a statute of limitations defense or some other legally-significant condition precedent. 2 “[Actual knowledge] does not mean first-hand knowledge, but only ‘knowledge’ as the word is used in common parlance[.]” Collins v. Big Four Paving, Inc., 1967-NMSC-019, ¶ 13, 77 N.M. 380, 423 P.2d 418. 

Even if the listing of the payment and the publication of the LinkedIn profile are not treated as admissions, Block has satisfied the State Ethics Commission Act’s “actual knowledge” requirement.  Block’s allegations are based on his review of NMFM expenditure reports and Erin Grisham’s LinkedIn profile. These allegations support a plausible inference that NMFM paid Erin Grisham for hair and make-up expenses. The State Ethics Commission Act does not require Block to have witnessed the make up being applied or the hair styled, and the receipt of a check, as a precondition to submitting a complaint. 

Starzynski added that “in order to fairly dispose of the Complaint, there must be a factual investigation by General Counsel. For that reason, the Motion to Dismiss filed by New Mexicans for Michelle should be denied, and the General Counsel should initiate the requisite investigation.” 

This is just the latest win regarding this complaint, which was originally filed in May, and it appears to be advancing to the final stages, where a concrete determination can be made on whether the Lujan Grisham campaign did, indeed, break state law.

Scandal-ridden alleged serial groper MLG lauds Newsom for surviving recall

On Wednesday night, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham congratulated her scandal-ridden friend Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, for him surviving a recall election attempt. 

She wrote to the embattled California governor, “Tonight, California voters chose progress! Congratulations @GavinNewsom, I know you will continue to champion progressive policies in #CA, by creating good-paying jobs, funding public education, and taking action on climate change.” 

Lujan Grisham has been a longtime ally of Newsom, who has been fighting alongside her for radical socialism in America. In one instance, they proudly stood together to try and block President Trump’s actions to curb illegal immigration, being the only two border states standing against the Trump administration’s actions.

They also have adopted mirroring radical climate change proposals, as we reported on previously. The two also stood arm and arm for radical pro-abortion policies.

Now, Lujan Grisham is going all-in on her support of Newsom, who much like herself, broke his pandemic rules to eat at a luxury fine dining restaurant (without a mask) while demanding Californians wear a mask in between bites of food. 

Lujan Grisham broke her rules to buy luxury jewelry from a shuttered business and used taxpayer funds to eat $200 per pound Wagyu beef steaks while making New Mexicans stand in cold bread lines over the holidays. 

But in an official statement from the “Democratic Governor’s Association,” Lujan Grisham wrote the following:

“Congratulations to Gov. Gavin Newsom on his victory in the Republican recall election. Gov. Newsom is a bold leader who has courageously navigated California through unprecedented crises while successfully fending off dangerous distractions by the far-right.

“Tonight, California voters chose progress over a completely out-of-touch Republican agenda. With his victory, Gov. Newsom will continue to lead based on science and facts while championing progressive policies like creating good-paying jobs, increasing access to affordable housing, funding public education, and taking action on climate change.

“The DGA was proud to be one of the earliest and largest funders of the Stop the Republican Recall effort. As we continue to fight for progress and opportunity for all, we are thankful to have Gov. Newsom as part of our strong coalition of Democratic governors.”

Now, Lujan Grisham faces a tough reelection of her own, with her cruel edicts trouncing her poll numbers in the state. Her favorability being on the low side, according to the latest left-wing polls, will harm her in her chances to hang onto her seat.

Anti-life legislator and alleged MLG groping witness announces retirement

On Tuesday, far-left anti-life state Rep. Debbie Armstrong announced she will be retiring after he current term is up since she was able to finally pass her “grandma killer” bill to prescribe life-ending drug “cocktails” to kill people who have a terminal illness, including the mentally infirm, the disabled, and cancer patients.

Armstrong said, “Having passed the End-of-Life Options Act, the Healthcare Affordability Fund, and seeing the state truly turn a corner with the firm establishment of our medical cannabis program and legalization of adult-use cannabis, I feel it is time for me to focus on my family and other projects. I can’t thank enough my incredible constituents and supporters who have supported me and these important initiatives over the years, and who shared my vision of a state where every New Mexican can get access to the quality healthcare they deserve.”

Scandal-ridden alleged groper Gov. Lujan Grisham, who signed Armstrong’s bill, lauded the legislator, who has been a long-time business partner of Grisham, where the two defrauded the American taxpayers with their “Delta Consulting” endeavor, named after their college sorority Delta Delta Delta. 

The statement reads as follows:

“Representative Armstrong has for years been a strong advocate for the health and wellbeing of every New Mexican, one of the fiercest and most dedicated champions our state has ever had in this all-important issue area. Throughout her distinguished tenure as a legislator, she always put people first — making health insurance affordable for more families, reproductive healthcare accessible to more women and medical cannabis available to more patients, to name only a few of her numerous legislative accomplishments.

In 2021, Representative Armstrong succeeded in leading the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act through the Legislature, the culmination of a passionate decades-long effort for the representative and countless advocates for dignity in dying throughout our state.

I know she will continue her efforts to improve the lives of New Mexicans outside the Legislature, but her departure from that body will be a bittersweet occasion, as she has done so much for so many in that honorable role.

In addition to her meaningful professional work on behalf of New Mexicans, of course, Debbie is also, simply, an incredibly generous and loving and funny person, who I have been honored for so many years to call my dear friend. And as both a friend and colleague I wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors and many happy years spent with her family and loved ones, and I look forward to continuing to work with her for a brighter future for New Mexico families.” 

The two reportedly grifted the people of New Mexico by upcharging the sick in the state’s high-risk insurance pool despite Obamacare effectively making the program obsolete. 

Regarding the alleged sexual assault by Grisham to a former staffer, we previously reported: 

He claims this assault happened during a senior staff meeting held at Representative Deborah Armstrong’s (D-Bernalillo) home in the summer of 2018…. Hallinan claimed then-U.S. Rep. Lujan Grisham “took a water bottle and dumped it on my crotch and then slapped and grabbed me in front of everybody.” 

Now, the anti-life legislator and alleged Lujan Grisham groping witness is calling it quits after her term is up, although it is unclear if an even more radical anti-lifer will fill her seat.
