New Mexico patriots holding three-day rally for President Trump at Roundhouse

On Monday through Wednesday, New Mexico patriots will be rallying in support of President Donald J. Trump at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe, aligning with nationwide protests against the certification of former Vice President Joe Biden’s alleged illegitimate presidential victory. 

According to posts about the event, patriots will be meeting at Placitas Exit 242 in Bernalillo at 10:00 a.m. on January 6th and riding into Santa Fe to support the 45th President. 

The protests in Santa Fe will occur Monday through Wednesday at 12:00 noon, with people from all across the state coming up to rally for Trump.

On January 6th, members of Congress will vote on the certification of the election results despite credible allegations and evidence of widespread Democrat fraud in multiple battleground states, including New Mexico. The state’s newly sworn-in Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell from the Second District will object to the certification of the vote. At least 140 members of the House and 12 members of the Senate will also plan on objecting. 

More information on sponsors and other details can be found in the below tweet:

Over the weekend, a patriot protest in support of President Trump at the Roundhouse was met by State Police telling Trump supporters to follow the Governor’s “mandates” to “social distance.” Police officers circled the block regularly to check-in on the peaceful protest for the President and against Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s lockdowns. 

Yvette Herrell sworn in as Congresswoman for NM’s 2nd District

On Sunday, Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell was sworn in as the U.S. Representative for New Mexico’s Second District after she beat one-term Democrat Rep. Xochitl Torres Small by around 20,000 votes. Torres Small allegedly was aided by voting irregularities in her win over Herrell in 2018.

Herrell wore a white chequered dress while she showed her constituents her new House office before being sworn-in to the 117th Congress. She wrote, “Excited and blessed to join the 117th Congress later today.” 

Herrell, who has committed to voting against the alleged illegitimate election of former Vice President Joe Biden as president, cast one of her first votes in the House against Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s re-election to the post, casting her vote for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy instead.

She wrote, “We don’t need Nancy Pelosi’s socialist agenda. Today I cast my vote for [McCarthy] instead.” 

Mainstream media tries to victimize hostile man tased by Park Ranger—bodycam shows full story

On Sunday, a man named Darrell House was walking off the trail at Petroglyph National Park with his dog and sister. A Park Ranger later tased him for being belligerent and refusing to identify himself despite being asked multiple times to cooperate. House’s video, which he and his sister recorded, was taken out-of-context by liberal outlets to victimize him. However, the bodycam footage shows the full story that differs from the one House tried to portray.

Despite the Park Ranger being patient with House and giving him multiple chances to get back on the path, as seen in the video leading up to the incident, House did not cooperate with him.

“You guys gotta stay on the trail, all right,” said the Park Ranger, adding, “And then also — sorry, I’m out of breath, I was trying to haul to keep up with you guys. When you’re up along the rocks and all that, that’s super sacred to the tribes — they don’t want anyone up there.”

“It’s also really, really important not to have pets off the trail as well, okay? So, even like right here, we’re not on the trail. We really should be along the fenced-in trail area,” the Ranger continued. “Do you guys have ID’s with you? I don’t intend on writing any–.” 

Then House started walking away and ignoring the Ranger, to which he had to inform House that he was “not free to go right now — hold on. Hold on. Hold on…. Hey, bud, listen, you are not free — do not do it like this. Okay? Please don’t be like that. This is just a simple contact that is honestly, a warning. I don’t expect it to be more than that, okay?” 

After House refused to identify himself, the Park Ranger notified him that he was “refusing a lawful order,” and according to his protocol, he had to detain House until he could be ID’d. House continued walking away from the Ranger, while he was asked to give his sister the dog. 

“My dog ain’t going anywhere,” House repeated multiple times. 

“Okay, here’s what I need you to do — stop right now, sir. Stop walking. Stop walking or you may be tased. Stop walking…. Put the dog down right now. Put the dog down right now,” said the Ranger. After politely telling House to put the dog down, again and again, the man became hostile, screaming, “Help! Help! Help!” He was tased and the officer politely told House to show him his hands. Upon refusal after telling him repeatedly to show his hands, the Ranger was forced to tase House again. 

Unfortunately, the mainstream media refused to add the context of House being belligerent toward the officer, in an apparent attempt to victimize House as innocent, despite his refusal to follow the requests of the Park Ranger. 

Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller’s social justice project, the “Office of Equity and Inclusion,” appeared to side with House, writing, “Like many of you, we have seen the disturbing video of the tasing at Petroglyph National Monument, an area policed by the National Park Service. We reached out to NPS directly, and understand that the events are under investigation — one we expect to be thorough, transparent, and speedy.” 

New Mexico’s far-left Sen. Martin Heinrich took House’s side as well, writing on Twitter, “I am shocked by the video of a National Park Service ranger tasing Darrell House at Petroglyph National Monument on Sunday….This landscape is sacred to Tribes and holds deep meaning for the people of New Mexico. Everyone should feel safe and welcome on our public lands.”

Other socialist members of Congress showed their outrage at the out-of-context video, including far-left Representative-elect Cori Bush (D-MO), an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed candidate.

Darrell House wrote on Instagram, “I didn’t feel I needed to identify myself for doing absolutely nothing wrong. I’m traumatized. My left leg is numb and still bleeding. Geronimo is shaking and hasn’t stopped. I’m shaking.” However, the National Park Service’s bodycam footage shows that he did many things wrong by not following simple requests.

House and his sister were cited by the National Park Service for being in a closed area off-trail, providing false information, and failing to comply with a lawful order.

‘What are you hiding?’: Toulouse Oliver refuses Trump Campaign’s request for election records

On Thursday, New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver refused a request by the Trump Campaign seeking election records, as required by law through an Inspection of Public Records Request (IPRA). 

According to a press release from the New Mexico Republican Party (RPNM), the Secretary of State’s Office said it would respond to the request on or before December 30, 2020. “That hasn’t happened, and now the state has suddenly informed the Trump Team that it will change its response date to January 14, 2021, eight days after Congress meets. The state also told the Trump Team “We deem your request excessively burdensome and broad,” says RPNM.

RPNM Chairman and former Congressman Steve Pearce said, “The Secretary of State’s move is a deliberate effort to keep any evidence of potential election issues from the Trump Campaign until after Congress certifies the Electoral College vote on January 6,” says Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce. “Again, the Secretary of State is partisan and defiant in refusing to uphold and oversee election integrity. She just makes up her rules. There’s no transparency of government here.”

The press release continues: 

“Again, the Secretary of State will not come clean, and it makes one wonder if there are things she doesn’t want to come out,” says Pearce. “It possibly suggests there might have been anomalies or questionable practices that might have occurred in New Mexico’s presidential election.”

The Trump Campaign wants to look at election records to see if there was something rotten in the state of New Mexico, but the state’s top election officer appears to be hiding it.   

It is not an unreasonable question for many to ask the Secretary of State what she may be hiding by delaying and denying the Trump Campaign’s requests for information if there is nothing to hide. Secretary of State Toulouse Oliver has been hostile toward pro-Trump organizations in the past and had a town hall with vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

Rep.-elect Yvette Herrell to vote against Biden’s alleged fraudulent victory—NM Dems triggered

On Wednesday, Fox News, an increasingly irrelevant cable news station, reported that Congresswoman-Elect Yvette Herrell from New Mexico’s Second Congressional District will join other conservative Republican representatives, led by Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL), in voting not to certify Joe Biden’s alleged fraudulent “victory” in the presidential race. 

According to Fox News: 

GOP Reps.-elect Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Burgess Owens of Utah, Yvette Herrell of New Mexico, Dr. Ronny Jackson of Texas, Bob Good of Virginia, Jerry Carl of Alabama and Andrew Clyde of Georgia will be supporting Brooks’ effort, for a total of at least 10 incoming reps, Fox News has confirmed. This does not include current members who have said they will also object, like Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga.

Shortly after the news hit, the New Mexico Democrat Party, which suffered a crippling defeat with Herrell’s victory, claimed that Herrell was putting her “personal politics before the voters’ decision” in a statement to the Santa Fe New Mexican. 

“It is grossly irresponsible for an incoming congresswoman to be spreading dangerous misinformation about the recent election. It undermines the legitimate democratic process,” Democratic Party Chairwoman Marg Elliston said in a statement. “Southern New Mexicans deserve a congresswoman who will focus on meeting their needs, instead of putting her beliefs ahead of theirs.”

However, President Donald J. Trump won the Second District in 2016 and again in 2020 by comfortable margins, and the credible allegations of widespread fraud in the election show that the will of the American people did make their choice known–meaning Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were not legitimately elected to the White House, according to credible evidence. 

The Piñon Post has compiled an arsenal of information on election fraud from years’ past and during this election cycle in New Mexico, where it has been uncovered that Democrats admitted to ballot harvesting and other sketchy vote collecting practices. In 2018, Yvette Herrell “lost” to Democrat Xochitl Torres Small by the thinnest of margins, and a subsequent audit found signs of widespread fraud

Congress votes on January 6th for the certification of the presidential election, and many Republicans in both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate plan to object to alleged illegitimately elected Joe Biden. 

Legacy and Calvary churches must resist Gov. Lujan Grisham’s tyranny

Over the weekend and on Monday, liberal media outlets like the Albuquerque Journal, KRQE News 13, and KOAT 7 News all blasted Calvary and Legacy churches in Albuquerque for holding Christmas Eve services to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, allegedly in non-compliance with Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s strict 25% capacity limit on churches.

Despite the large churches minding their own business in the practice of worship, that was not good enough for the liberal mainstream media and Gov. Lujan Grisham, who could not stand the thought of free Americans using their First Amendment rights to proclaim the birth of Christ. So, after the press amplified politically motivated liberal voices who claimed the churches were putting health at risk, the Governor’s Health Department slapped the churches with hefty $5,000 fines. 

The Department said that in addition to the $5,000 fine, “other remedies against the same conduct” would be taken “as allowed by state statute.”

The Governor’s pompous communications director Tripp Stelicki–who condescended New Mexicans repeatedly–gave a statement to the Albuquerque Journal, mercilessly bashing Legacy and Calvary churches for their “illegal and selfish gatherings,” saying they “will directly contribute to more suffering and illness in our state.”

Here’s what the Journal reported:

Tripp Stelnicki, a spokesman for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, said the parishioners and leaders of the two churches violated both the state’s public health order “and common sense.”

“They endangered the lives livelihoods and health of not only their parishioners but their entire communities — and given how quickly this virus can spread, potentially our state as a whole.”

Stelnicki went on to say that while all New Mexicans wish that the pandemic was over, it clearly is not and no pastor “may deem it so.”

“These church leaders should reflect on the danger they’ve unleashed in their communities,” he said.

The First Amendment comes first for a reason, and the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled in favor of religious institutions and against tyrannical edicts given from on-high by power-hungry tyrants like Lujan Grisham. “Even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten,” wrote the Court’s conservative majority in one case’s opinion.

Those words must ring true to Calvary and Legacy churches’ leadership now more than ever. Standing up for what is right may not always be easy, but both churches may be surprised at how many patriots from across our great state are willing to stand with them as they go into battle for New Mexicans’ rights. 

Legacy Church released a strong statement following criticism, saying, “We have taken the pandemic seriously from the start, and have prudent measures in place. But when governments exceed their constitutional authority and contradict what we are called on by God to do, we answer first to His authority.”

According to Calvary’s chief Pastoral Officer, Neil Oritz, he said that the church “experienced a significant attendance on one of the most celebrated and sacred days of our Christian faith.” In response to the large turnout, the church “chose not to break fellowship with any worshiper by requiring them to leave the gathering of their church family.”

“We do care about people’s physical health, and we take great precautions,” he said. “… At the same time, we believe that people can be responsible adults and make their own choices about their life and health and that of their families.”

If these churches choose not to buckle to Gov. Lujan Grisham’s tyranny, I and many readers of the Piñon Post would be the first people to donate to their legal funds in the fight for our Constitutional freedoms.

Take heed in the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the fight ahead: 

“One may well ask: ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’ The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’”

I urge as many New Mexicans as possible to email Calvary Church with words of encouragement by visiting their online form linked here. Legacy Church can be reached via email at this address: Please leave your name and phone number when contacting these churches so they may reach you better.

Liberal media outlets blast ABQ churches for holding Christmas services

Over the weekend, liberal media outlet KREQ News 13 blasted Calvary and Legacy churches in Albuquerque for holding Christmas Eve services, claiming attendees wearing “few face masks and little, to no, social distancing.” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is currently only allowing 25% capacity at churches in New Mexico, which the outlet alleges was broken by the two churches.

KRQE News showed footage from the church services, writing, “Because Bernalillo County is still in the red zone, that means places of worship are only allowed to hold services at 25-percent of their maximum capacity. While it appears both churches far exceeded that limit, it’s unclear just how many people attended.” 

It should be noted that the entire state is in the supposed “red zone,” as marked by Gov. Lujan Grisham’s restrictive “red to green” program. 

KRQE gave a platform to an individual allegedly named Cassius Money who was not identified with any particular group or affiliation, who said, “To see so many people in one room, disregarding any health measure any precautions, it felt disrespectful to my community.”

Legacy Church replied to KRQE News 13 with the following statement: 

“We have taken the pandemic seriously from the start, and have prudent measures in place. But when governments exceed their constitutional authority and contradict what we are called on by God to do, we answer first to His authority.”

On Monday, KOAT 7 News and the Albuquerque Journal picked up on the story, emphasizing how the churches may be subjected to $5,000 fines for disobeying the Governor’s orders.

Legacy Church previously lost a federal lawsuit petitioning for a higher occupancy rate than 25%, however, a George W. Bush-appointed judge denied it. Other churches from across the state have been fighting for their First Amendment rights, including Truth or Consequences’ New Hope Revival Church, where over Easter, Gov. Lujan Grisham sent State Police to serve a cease and desist order to the pastor, Dr. Caleb Cooper. The move came after Sierra County Sheriff Glenn Hamilton deputized the church. Piñon Post exclusively reported on the incident, while the liberal mainstream media did not.

On her way to the unemployment line, Torres Small takes futile jab at President Trump

While President Donald Trump fights for $2,000 checks for struggling Americans and cuts to the pork-filled Democrat COVID-19 “relief” bill passed through the Congress, one-term Rep. Xochitl Torres Small is taking her last jabs at the President on her way to the unemployment line.

Torres Small, a consistent opponent of President Trump, said that she would stand with other obstructionist Congress members in opposing the President’s veto of the $600 stimulus checks and billions in foreign aid in the bill meant to serve as COVID-19 relief. The bill also included $25 million for democracy and “gender studies” programs in Pakistan, funding to the Kennedy Center, and other non-COVID items.

She tweeted, “I will continue to stand up for our service members and vote to override this veto.”

“This bill — passed by both the House & Senate — is a result of bipartisan, months-long negotiations & will support our troops by authorizing a well-deserved pay raise. It’s critical the President puts our nat’l security & service members 1st by signing the NDAA into law,” she added.

Torres Small votes with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 94% of the time, and she has bashed President Trump as a “racist,” while taking campaign cash from socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar and dark money fringe-groups. 

The people of New Mexico’s Second Congressional District, despite alleged massive fraud across the state, sent Torres Small packing after her radical agenda was uncovered by the Piñon Post and her opponent, incoming Rep.-elect Yvette Herrell of Alamogordo. 

Herrell will take office in January, while Torres Small takes bitter jabs at the 45th president on her way out the door. 

WATCH: Hilarious Christmas music video calls out ‘Governor Grish’

This Christmas, one music video is spreading like wildfire across social media featuring New Mexico singer Ash Soular and “Governor Grish.” The video uses Gov. Lujan Grisham’s own words to show how she’s being a “tyrant.” 

The video starts out with audio clips of Lujan Grisham talking about how New Mexicans couldn’t celebrate holidays throughout the year. “We didn’t celebrate the 4th of July,” “We didn’t celebrate Labor Day,” “We didn’t go out with our families,” “and just enjoy Halloween,” “We didn’t see our families on Thanksgiving,” “Zoom Hanukkah,” “So Christmas… Don’t go in person!”

Then the Governor says, “And TOO much shopping is not good,” “And you can’t wear a mask and eat a biscochito!” “Zoom Christmas can be fun,” Lujan Grisham adds.  

The hilarious video calling out Gov. Lujan Grisham nails her for putting people out of business, making people stand in-line for food, and her shopping trip to a “non-essential” business to buy expensive jewelry while New Mexicans were never afforded such a luxury. 

The video ends with the uplifting message that “We’re taking back our rights,” telling Lujan Grisham, “Enjoy your only term!”
