    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is investigating a non-profit supported by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's regarding potential violations of state law.

    Paxton issued a Civil Investigative Demand (CID) to the Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL) on Thursday to determine whether the group solicited donations under the pretext of protecting voters from COVID while instead using the funds to support partisan election efforts.

    "Charities cannot mislead their donors and misrepresent the purpose of their fundraising," Paxton said in a statement. "Further, in Texas, as in other states, it is the duty of state and county officials, accountable to the people of Texas, to ensure that elections are fair, safe, and free. That duty cannot be usurped by outside entities who are not chosen by and cannot be accountable to the people of Texas."

    The CTCL claims to be a non-partisan organization that helps "connect Americans with the information they need to become and remain civically engaged, and ensure that our elections are more professional, inclusive, and secure." Founder and Executive Director Tiana Epps-Johnson served in the inaugural cohort of Obama Foundation Fellows and previously served as the election administration director for a progressive grassroots organization.

    The press release from Paxton's office stated that the CTCL received an estimated $350 million from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a philanthropy established by Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan. The CTCL claims to be helping election officials around the country to "safely administer" elections, but outside observers have noted that most of the group's funding was sent to counties and precincts that overwhelmingly voted for Joe Biden.

    Paxton's investigation seeks to determine whether donors were deceived regarding the CTCL's advertised purposes and hold the organization accountable for any possible wrongdoing.

    The attorney general's effort is not the first time Paxton has sought to investigate concerns related to Big Tech companies. In October, Paxton joined in an amicus brief before the Supreme Court to defend a Florida law designed to ensure that individuals aren't silenced because social media platforms disagree with their opinion.

    Earlier in October, Paxton also led a lawsuit by the state against Google over the company's unauthorized use of biometric data in violation of the privacy rights of Texans. The lawsuit alleges that "Google collected millions of biometric identifiers, including voiceprints and records of face geometry, from Texans through its products and services like Google Photos, Google Assistant, and Nest Hub Max," according to a press release from the attorney general's office.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
