Part 4: Joint State Actors

The corruption of Maggie Toulouse Oliver and other New Mexico election officials continues to be exposed – this time by the U.S. Congress. The U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee are investigating criminal censorship in hearings titled “Protecting Speech from Government Interference and Social Media Bias, Part 1: Twitter’s Role in Suppressing the Biden Laptop Story.”

In a passionate examination of the former global head of “trust and safety” at Twitter, Yoel Roth, Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) cornered Roth with a series of questions regarding a private messaging platform called “Jira.” Jira appears to have been set up to facilitate suppression of facts and censorship of Americans surrounding the 2020 presidential election.

Rep. Luna displayed a poster with the members of Jira – which included government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), National Association of Secretaries of State, the National Association of State Election Directors, leftist non-profits, and even the Democratic National Committee. There were no right-leaning non-profits or representatives from the Republican National Committee on Jira.

The hearings and Rep. Luna, primarily focused on the use of Jira to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story, which has been established by polling to have swayed the 2020 election in Biden’s favor significantly more than the margin of victory.

Luna stated that Jira is “a joint action between the federal government and a private company to censor and violate the first amendment. This is also known as “joint state actors”…. It is highly illegal.” Recall the now famous 2020 Time Magazine article which boldly declared the existence of, “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.”

Rep. Luna’s exposure of key figures using the Jira platform now confirms that the tacit admissions provided in the Time Magazine article was not merely the result of a loosely knit far-left coalition—but rather a highly illegal enterprise.

The fact that the membership included the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED), which have membership from all fifty states, should alarm all people concerned about election integrity, but especially New Mexicans.

The New Mexico Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, was made the president of the NASS in July 2020, just months prior to the most controversial election in U.S. History. As president of NASS, she would have certainly known about the existence of Jira, and evidence exists that she used it to suppress the first amendment rights of New Mexicans.

This email from election day, 2020 shows Oliver directing a subordinate to “reach out to Twitter” to remove a post that a New Mexican citizen had made reporting a power outage at a polling place:

Maggie Toulouse Oliver Shuts down first amendment

The SOS could have replied to the tweet that the power outage was resolved, but she chose instead to violate the first amendment rights of the New Mexican who made the tweet by removing it.

Included in the email thread are several high-level employees at the New Mexico Secretary of State office, including Mandy Vigil the state Elections Director. Mandy Vigil is the current treasurer of the NASED – which is another member of the illegal messaging platform, Jira. In other words, it seems apparent that the entire Secretary of State’s office knew that they had a back door with Twitter set up to control speech about their performance as an office and to delete posts inconvenient to their reputation.

A staffer in Dona Ana County reported that the Dona Ana County Clerk, Amanda Askin, whose corruption has been highlighted previously, is known to have attended events put on by the NASED.

New Mexicans who are tired of the blatant corruption and illegal actions of New Mexico’s election officers should contact Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Chairman US House Judiciary Committee, ( ) and ask him to look closely at Maggie Toulouse Oliver, Mandy Vigil, Amanda Askin, and their subordinates and determine what their involvement was in the highly illegal, coordinated effort to silence Americans.
