Batches of discarded mail, including voter ballots, stolen from mailboxes and dumped in California


Reported by Andrew Mark Miller, Social Media Producer | October 09, 2020 09:59 AM

Discarded ballots were also found this week next to an ATM in nearby Los Angeles.

“You know, is this intentional?” the woman who found the ballots told the local news. “Is this meant to suppress the vote? I don’t know.”

Questions about the security of mail-in ballots have also risen in other parts of the country, including Pennsylvania, where discarded military ballots were found — the majority of which contained votes for President Trump, according to the Department of Justice.

A letter carrier in New Jersey was arrested this week for allegedly intentionally discarding as many 99 mail-in ballots into dumpsters.

Trump and fellow Republicans have criticized the push for mail-in voting, citing concerns about the integrity of the process, while Democrats have insisted that mail-in voting is necessary to protect voters from the spread of the coronavirus.

Second Video with Major Ilhan Omar Voter Fraud Allegations Released as Minneapolis Police Investigate


Reported By Jack Davis | Published September 29, 2020 at 7:48am

The drumbeat of voter fraud allegations against Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota grew stronger Monday with the release of a second video from Project Veritas purporting to show ballot harvesting being conducted.

The release of the second video in two days came as Minneapolis police said they were investigating the situation.

“The MPD is aware of the allegations of vote harvesting. We are in the process of looking into the validity of those statements. No further information is available at this time on this,” the department tweeted Monday.

On Sunday, Project Veritas released a video allegedly exposing an apparent sophisticated ballot-harvesting scheme targeting mostly Somali-born seniors in Minneapolis.

Those who spoke in the video alleged there are exchanges of cash for mail-in ballots in many cases.

In response to the initial video, Omar’s senior communications director, Jeremy Slevin, told Newsweek: “The amount of truth to this story is equal to the amount Donald Trump paid in taxes of ten out of the last fifteen years: zero. And amplifying a coordinated right-wing campaign to delegitimize a free and fair election this fall undermines our democracy.”

Then on Monday, Project Veritas released a second video:

“Your focus is winning, no matter what you do. You ignore the rules and regulations,” Omar Jamal, a Somali community member, said in the new video. “There’s no moral and ethics here. It’s just the end will justify the means.”

“I think Ilhan Omar is one of the people behind all this mess,” he said. “And they have a lot of people that work for them that make sure that tasks get carried out, ballots collected. This is the cash money exchanging hands.”

“It’s an open secret that everybody knows it but they don’t talk about it.”

“Nobody would say that Ilhan Omar isn’t part of this,” Jamal added in an accompanying news release on the Project Veritas website. “Unless you’re from a different planet, but if you live in this universe, I think everybody knows it.”

The video showed a source appearing to link Omar to the alleged ballot harvesting operation.

Fauci Just Proved Trump Is Right About Mail-In Voting, Dems Will Lose Their Minds


Reported By Erin Erhardt | Published August 14, 2020 at 5:36pm

The votes are in: Both Dr. Anthony Fauci and President Donald Trump support in-person voting this fall. With the 2020 presidential election rapidly approaching in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, there has been much debate about whether it will be safe to gather in person at polling locations. That debate should now be over. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said safe in-person voting is possible, as long as proper precautions are taken.

Fauci spoke with ABC News Correspondent Deborah Roberts for “Stopping Pandemics,” an exclusive National Geographic event that aired on Wednesday. During the interview, Roberts asked Fauci if it would be safe for people to go out and vote in person this November.

“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case,” Fauci said.

“For example, when you look at going to a grocery store now in many regions and counties and cities that are doing it correctly, they have ‘X’s every six or more feet. And it says, Don’t leave this spot until the person in front of you left their spot. And you can do that, if you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do that.”

Fauci did provide a caveat that people who are high-risk should take advantage of mail-in or other vote-from-home options, options that have been available for years.

“I mean, obviously if you’re a person who is compromised physically or otherwise, you don’t want to take the chance,” he said.

“There’s the situation of mail-in voting that has been done for years in many places. So there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to vote in person or otherwise.”

For months we’ve been told that we should listen to the “experts” and the “science” on coronavirus. Now that the nation’s top expert and the president agree that in-person voting is safe, the debate should be over.

Unfortunately, that seems unlikely.

The left has been pushing for universal mail-in voting for months — almost since the beginning of the pandemic. Trump has been pushing back just as long, arguing that mail-in voting presents a greater opportunity for fraud and would place a heavy burden on the already struggling United States Postal Service. The Postal Service has already sent letters to 46 states warning it cannot guarantee all mail-in ballots for the November election will be delivered early enough to be counted.

There is a legitimate debate to be had about alternative voting methods. Even without the fear of a pandemic, issues like hours-long lines and lack of transportation discourage potential voters. Some states already utilize robust mail-in voting systems. For example, Colorado sends mail-in ballots to every registered voter and reports very little fraud in the process, according to KCNC-TV. However, Colorado’s system was implemented over time and with great consideration.

Additionally, it was first fully implemented during the 2014 midterm elections, not made mere months before a hotly contested presidential election. In fact, there are already plenty of examples of mail-in ballot issues this year alone and test runs of mail-in processes aren’t looking particularly promising.

Moreover, election rules and regulations are generally made at the state and local levels.

A nationwide mail-in voting mandate would overstep the bounds of federalism, taking control out of the hands of state and local governments and putting it in federal hands.

The president just wants a fair election. Now, Fauci agrees with him that there is no reason in-person voting should not go ahead as scheduled. Everyone should be happy about this, as established voting procedures are likely more secure than hastily implemented pandemic procedures.

Unfortunately, the left hates to see Trump proven right, so the push for mail-in voting this fall is likely to continue.

FRAUD: Numerous People in New Jersey Claim “Mail In” Ballots Cast In Their Name Without Their Knowledge


Reported by   | Published 

A resident of Passaic County, Ramona Javier made the same complaint.

“We did not receive vote by mail ballots and thus we did not vote,” she stated in Spanish. When she was presented with an official list of some of the people who voted in her neighborhood – where her name was also on that list —, Javier stated ”This is corruption. This is fraud.”

According to Javier, there are eight relatives and immediate neighbors she knows that were listed as having voted but who sustain that they never received ballots. One of Javier’s relatives says she had been in Florida for weeks.

The local councilman, Luis Velez, acknowledged that a dozen of similar cases have taken place in his ward.

“Where is the democracy in this? Where is the fair process?” Velez stated.

Corruption continues to be a major issue regarding vote-by-mail election taking place across Paterson, New Jersey — the third largest city in the state.

NBC New York highlighted some questionable video footage that surfaced of voters carrying multiple ballots:

Videos are surfacing online of a single voter carrying numerous ballots. Postal workers were seen leaving some ballots sitting out in building lobbies. And hundreds of filled out ballots were found by postal workers in single mailboxes in Paterson, suggesting a possible vote bundling operation which election experts say is a crime. In one case, officials said more than 300 Paterson city ballots were found in a single mailbox in an entirely different town: Haledon.

According to a county spokesperson, more than 800 mail-in votes were cast in one of New Jersey’s largest cities.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy did not cover the specific problems taking place in Paterson during his Wuhan virus news briefing on May 13, 2020. When asked about corruption issues when dealing with the statewide vote-by-mail election, Murphy said, ”It is too early to give you a full answer.”

One candidate in the area, Ramon Joaquin, said that the Board of Elections was not being transparent about how officials were going about in eliminating votes. “The 800 votes should be counted or the names of the people whose votes were suppressed should be released.”

NBC New York also noted the following:

Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh has voiced concern ballot-stealing operations may have been underway in some wards, and he said so-called ballot stuffing appeared to be a big problem. The mayor called on law enforcement authorities to investigate. Also calling for a criminal investigation was council candidate Frank Filippelli. He said he was also aware of voting problems he believed were criminal across the city.

Republicans should make noise on this issue and point out how mail-in-votes are teeming with corruption, especially during the Wuhan virus pandemic where resources are tight.

Americans Just Sent Democrats a Loud and Clear Message About Impeachment: Don’t Do It


Reported By Karista Baldwin | Published April 28, 2019 at 8:01am

Democratic leaders are in a tough spot as their base pushes for the president’s impeachment while most Americans oppose it.

A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll found that the majority of Americans are against impeaching the president following the publication of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. According to the poll, around 37 percent of Americans are pro-impeachment, a slightly lower figure than last month. Meanwhile, 56 percent of Americans oppose impeachment.

Breaking the results into parties: 62 percent of Democrats responded to the poll in support of impeachment, while 87 percent of Republican respondents opposed to it. Among independents, 36 percent support impeaching the president, showing a drop in the group’s support for impeachment since before the release of the Mueller report, according to January’s Washington Post/ABC News poll. Poll respondents who strongly oppose impeachment also outnumber those who strongly support, with strong opposition at 49 percent and strong support at 29 percent.

According to ABC News, this shows a 10-point rise since August in those strongly opposed to impeachment. It also reflects an 11-point decrease since August in those strongly in favor of impeachment.

The results reveal a dilemma for Democratic politicians at the moment: keeping their increasingly leftist base happy without alienating the majority of Americans who are against impeachment. The impeachment issue has already shown itself to be divisive within the Democratic party. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, both Democratic presidential nominee contenders, are placing their bets on pro-impeachment voters. Both senators have publicly urged Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump.

“I believe Congress should take the steps towards impeachment,” Harris said, reported by CNN. “I believe that we need to get rid of this President.”

Warren has also taken a firm stance in support of impeaching Trump.

“The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty,” Warren wrote on Twitter last week. “That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States.”

Meanwhile, old-school Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has taken it upon herself do damage control for her party. Her more pragmatic approach to impeachment has shown itself to be at odds with her younger Democratic colleagues.

“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,” Pelosi told The Washington Post in March. “And he’s just not worth it.”

The public’s views on impeachment may be backing Democrats into a lose-lose situation. While Pelosi is working to appeal to the largest group of Americans on the issue of impeachment, she’s risking angering more leftist Democrats.

And while Harris and Warren cite the Mueller report as grounds for impeachment, 58 percent of Americans say that the results of the report had no effect on their view of the Trump administration, according to the Washington Post/ABC poll. In fact, 46 percent of the poll respondents said they won’t be taking the report into consideration when they vote in the 2020 presidential election.

Democratic nominee hopefuls may have to choose between upsetting their more extreme leftist supporters or alienating the general populace, who obviously aren’t eager to initiate impeachment. Either way could cost Democratic contenders their party’s nomination.

‘Ballot harvesting’ – a sure-fire way for Dems to win


Reported by Chad Groening, Jody Brown (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, December 3, 2018

California mail-in ballotsA conservative columnist agrees with House Speaker Paul Ryan in questioning the legitimacy of California’s vote-counting process.

It’s called “ballot harvesting” – and it’s illegal in most states. But the practice was legal for the first time in California this year. It allows a third party to collect completed “vote by mail” ballots from voters and then hand them over to election officials. The legislation states that:

“… A vote by mail voter who is unable to return the ballot [by mail or in person] may designate any person to return the ballot to the elections official who issued the ballot, to the precinct board at a polling place or vote center within the state, or to a vote by mail ballot dropoff location within the state ….” (Assembly Bill 1921)

What’s your reaction to ‘ballot harvesting’?
Just another page in Democrats’ playbookNot familiar with it but sounds legitCalif. deserves it cuz Dems are in chargeThere’s a reason it’s illegal in most statesLeaves door wide open for voter fraudEnsures all votes are counted

That new law has caused Ryan, the outgoing Speaker of the House, to question the legitimacy of several California congressional races last month, adding to the contention of many Republicans that the state’s election procedures are flawed. “We had a lot of wins that night, and three weeks later we lost basically every contested California race. This election system they have? I can’t begin to understand what ballot harvesting is,” Ryan told The Washington Post.

Robert Knight, a conservative columnist for The Washington Times and OneNewsNow, says Ryan has legitimate concerns. “There’s long been a clear pattern across the country that when ballots are counted after a close election, the Democrats invariably win. Somehow they come up with the ballots,” he points out.

Robert KnightThe most suspicious case in California, according to Knight, was in the 39th Congressional District, where Republican Young Kim was vying to become the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress.

“She was up by 14 percent on election night – and then they started all the ballot counting,” he describes. “And a week later they declared the Democrat the winner, Gil Cisneros, by 3,000 votes.

“Now I’m just wondering why it always goes this way. It never goes the other way. Whenever you see a ballot counting, the Democrats always seem to harvest enough votes to get over the top. And so when Paul Ryan suspects something fishy, a lot of us feel the same way.”

Washington Times columnist Shawn Steel puts it this way regarding the ultimate result of the Kim-Cisneros race: “There’s no evidence of ballot box shenanigans. No need. Democrats know it’s easier to erode voter integrity laws than to stuff ballot boxes …. Merciless and unsparing, California Democrats have systematically undermined California’s already-weak voter protection laws to guarantee permanent one-party rule.”

Steel argues his case by detailing how California Democrats have expanded voter eligibility for non-citizens, inmates, and felons, and instituting “motor voter” registration, pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds, automatic mailing of absentee ballots to every voter, conditional ballots, ballots accepted up to a week after Election Day, and second chance for rejected ballots.

Dear America: It’s Called ‘BALLOT HARVESTING’ And It’s How The Left STOLE Several Elections

Ever heard of ‘ballot harvesting’? Here’s what you need to know. Notice that a whole bunch of seats that were tilting Red on election night flipped blue a week or so later? What’s up with that? And why was that trend only in one direction?

Carmine Sabia of The Federalist Papers had some interesting things to say about that. Here’s a taste.

California’s most staunchly ‘red’ district went blue in at the Midterms. But why? Was it the ‘blue wave’? Did Republicans stay home? Was there any ‘funny business’ behind the scenes? (Heaven forbid anyone call it ‘monkey business’ anymore.)

This is where ‘ballot harvesting comes into play’.

As the polls closed on election day last month, six California Republican House candidates, including Representatives Dana Rohrabacher, Steve Knight, and Mimi Walters, were ahead in their respective races. However, as the absentee and provisional ballots rolled in over the intervening weeks, all six lost to their Democratic opponents.

The case of Korean-American GOP candidate Young Kim was one of the most prominent examples. On election night, Kim held an 8,000 vote lead over her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros, and even attended freshman orientation in Washington, D.C. before watching her lead, and her victory, slowly evaporate over the subsequent weeks.

What is it?

“We beat Republicans on the ground, fair and square,” said Katie Merrill, a Democratic consultant deeply involved in November campaigns. “Many of the field plans included (ballot harvesting) as an option to deliver voters or their ballots” to the polls.

Those efforts involved identifying voters who might support Democratic candidates and ignoring those who wouldn’t.

In one Orange County household, for example, both the husband and wife were longtime Republicans, said Dale Neugebauer, a veteran Republican consultant. Democratic volunteers came by the house four times, each time asking to speak only with their 18-year-old daughter, a no-party-preference voter, and asking if she wanted them to pick up her signed and completed ballot.

That’s a perfect example of the “thorough and disciplined” ground game the Democrats used, said Merrill.

“We were not wasting time talking to people who weren’t going to vote for Democrats,” she said.

It’s not just an offer to drive the voters to the polls, it’s an offer to drop off their ballots. Nope, no way THAT could be misused, is there? There’s no way you could misplace the ‘wrong’ party’s ballots on the way to the polls, right? Or slip in a few dubious ones with the stack of legitimate ones?

So, was this a slick way to make those ‘grey areas’ work in their favor that our side has to implement? Or is it something that needs to be nipped in the bud?

Millennials’ struggle with the faith-politics mix


Reported by Bill Bumpas, Steve Jordahl (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, November 5, 2018

millennials votingEvangelical Millennials are grappling with how to integrate their faith and their politics, as highlighted by a recent article in The New York Times.

Six young Christians, all raised in evangelical homes and now breaking with their parents over how to deal with issues such as same-sex “marriage,” immigration, and race. Those are the profiles the Times chose to highlight out of about 1,500 responses when young evangelicals were asked about the relationship between their faith and their politics:

“Here’s what we learned,” says the Times. “Young evangelicals are questioning the typical ties between evangelicalism and Republican politics. Many said it had caused schisms within their families. And many described a real struggle with an administration they see as hostile to immigrants, Muslims, L.G.B.T.Q. people, and the poor. They feel it reflects a loss of humanity, which conflicts with their spiritual call.”

Evangelical apologist Dr. Alex McFarland says those same discussions are going on in tens of thousands of Christian home across the country.

“[These young evangelicals] do love Jesus. I don’t dispute that,” says McFarland. “But they don’t understand that Christian love doesn’t mean having open borders. Christian love does not mandate that we have universal healthcare. Christian love does not mean that we allow a secular government – or any government – to redistribute wealth.”

McFarland

And he says it certainly doesn’t mean questioning clear biblical teaching on sexuality.

McFarland – founder and president of Truth for a New Generation – says if these young people want to wear the evangelical mantle, they have to have a high view of scripture. “Young people also need to have maybe a little bit more robust understanding of the fine delineations between church and government, personal piety, and the responsibility of good, ordered civil government,” he adds.

Having spoken in more than 1,500 different churches in North America and internationally, he says churches could be doing more to teach these young people what it means to honor God with both their faith and their politics.

“Seventy-four percent of parishioners want their clergy to speak to moral, social, political issues and how does the Word of God speak about today’s issues,” he notes. “In evangelical churches, roughly only 12 percent do.”

Faith fuels voting decisions

If McFarland is right that churches could be doing more to educate young voters, some of that slack is being picked up by groups attempting to educate Millennials on college campuses. As part of this election season, a campaign has been under way on more than 100 Christian college campuses to encourage hundreds of thousands of students to cast a ballot.

The “Because I Care” voting initiative was collaboratively launched by two organizations with the same goal of encouraging Christians to vote: Im2moro and My Faith Votes.

Audrea Decker, president of Im2moro, says the effort provided Christian universities and Bible college students with all they need to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and access a full non-partisan sample ballot and candidate information to be fully informed of each candidate’s positions.

Decker tells OneNewsNow that “Because I Care” is the message they want to send to the next generation.

“You don’t need to vote because you like a particular candidate or a particular party,” she shares. “You vote because of your faith and because you care about your community, your nation, and bringing God’s truth, his proven biblical principles, into the public square – because that is where it’s best for our society and our culture and our world today.

“And so it’s really our faith that fuels our political involvement – and we do it not for ourselves, but for others in the way that policies affect people in our country today.”

Decker says 117 Christian colleges have utilized the “Because I Care” materials on campus, reaching a student population of 325,000. In 2016, the group’s materials made in onto 41 campuses and reached 135,000 students.

 

Rigged for Democrats? Voters Purged from Rolls Will Get Ballots Counted Anyway


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 1, 2018 at 2:21pm

One of the wonderful things about the United States is the right to vote. Because people move and die, voter rolls need to be purged from time to time to help keep things honest and accurate. In some places, to help with this, voters who haven’t been to the polls in a number of years will be purged from the voter rolls. But a federal court ruling just made that more difficult.

According to The Associated Press, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court on Wednesday ordered election officials in the crucial swing state of Ohio to accept provisional ballots from those purged from the voting rolls between 2011 and 2015 if they show up to cast a ballot for this year’s midterms — either as part of early voting or on Election Day itself.

The voters were purged only after failing to vote for six years, and failing to respond to a notice informing them they would be taken off the rolls for inactivity if they didn’t answer.

However, the AP reported, the appeals court agreed with advocacy groups challenging the purge on the grounds that the letters informing voters about it “were too vague on letting recipients know the consequences of not responding.”

According to the Washington Examiner, “the ruling will allow provisional ballots submitted by voters purged from the rolls between 2011 and 2015 to be taken into account in the state’s early voting — as long as they still live in the same county of their last registration and have not been disqualified from voting due to felony conviction, mental incapacity, or death.”

It’s nice to know death is still a disqualifier from voting. Still, the ruling means that, despite the fact they had made no effort to respond to the letter or vote in six years, voters who were purged from the rolls now can vote anyway. Rules don’t matter. It might not come as a surprise to know that, according to the Washington Examiner, the groups challenging the purge included liberal outfits like the Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and the progressive “public policy organization” Demos.

With that kind of context, it’s not hard to guess which party is likely to benefit the most from low-information, low-engagement voters suddenly deciding to take an interest in the political life of their country. The ruling is a win for Democrats.

In essence, the liberals’ appeal was pushing the narrative that voters who were purged lacked the intelligence to understand the letters that were sent out or to inquire about them. This is the same kind of argument liberals have pushed about voter ID laws: That some groups are too low-I.Q. to know how to do what everyone else does, which is to get identification to function in modern American society.

So what is the big deal if purged voters can now vote? Tom Fitton, president of legal watchdog group Judicial Watch weighed in on the other aspect of the Ohio process that the 6th Circuit’s ruling did approve of — the basic principle that voter rolls need to be purged for accuracy.

His statement answers that question.

“Great news: another federal court turned aside a leftist attempt to dirty up the voting rolls and undermine clean elections,” Fitton stated. “Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.

“We will keep pushing in the courts to make sure other states take reasonable steps to make sure the names of dead people and people who have moved away are removed from election rolls. After comparing national census data to voter roll information, Judicial Watch estimates that there are 3.5 million more names on state voter rolls than there are citizens of voting age.”

Even though the court ruled that the purge itself was not the problem, you’d never know that based on a statement from the Demos, which claimed Ohio voters who were purged from the rolls had been “unlawfully disenfranchised.”

So if voting in prior elections, a rule that has been upheld as constitutional, suddenly doesn’t matter, and if failing to respond to a notice that states you may be removed from the voting rolls if you don’t vote or respond also doesn’t matter, what exactly is the criterion for voters in the mind of Democrats? Breathing? Apparently, following the rules everyone else can follow isn’t a requirement.

The elephant in the room, of course, is that the left fighting this hard to get around the rules may indicate a belief on their part that the voters who were purged would vote Democrat. By getting those ballots accepted regardless of the rules, this ruling opens the door for the kind of dirty election the voter purge rules were meant to prevent.

Dems Hate GA Voter Law Because They Don’t Think Minorities Can Write Own Names: Hunter


Reported By Bryan Chai | October 15, 2018 at 11:10am

The Democratic party, and the far left in general, like to paint themselves as the party of tolerance and enlightenment. Obviously, we all know that’s not the case. But every once in a while, the Democratic Party reminds us of just how hypocritical they truly are. The best part is, they don’t even realize they’re doing it.

Case in point, just look at the hysteria surrounding Georgia’s “exact match” law.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the “exact match” law simply states that to be acceptable, a voter’s registration application must exactly match a driver’s license, state ID card or Social Security records.

That hardly seems controversial. After all, voting is such an important American right which helps shape our country, it’d make sense to make sure that all information is accurate and legitimate.

Democrats and the left don’t see it that way. They essentially find that law racist, apparently.

“Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has been a driving force behind multiple voter suppression efforts throughout the years in Georgia,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law said in a statement through Common Dreams.

It didn’t take long for Clarke to throw in a veiled accusation of racism.

“If there is one person in Georgia who knows that the ‘Exact Match’ scheme has a discriminatory impact on minority voters, it’s Brian Kemp because we successfully sued him over a mirror policy in 2016,” Clarke said.

Kemp, who is running for Georgia governor in the upcoming midterms in November, has frequently heard similar complaints from his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams.

Abrams recently called Kemp “a remarkable architect of voter suppression” according to the The Associated Press.

Apparently, it’s now racist to try and safeguard our Constitutional Republic from voter fraud.

Clarke and Abrams seem to be glossing over the little fact that voters who have been flagged by the “exact match” law can still vote, as the Journal-Constitution notes. Oftentimes, the hold-ups when it comes to “exact match” issues stems from something simple like a missing hyphen, discrepancies between married and maiden names or even clerical government errors.

Even while those issues are pending, flagged voters can vote. Assuming a voter is not actively trying to commit voter fraud, the “exact match” law is a minor inconvenience at worst.

Not only are Democrats being intentionally misleading about the severity of the impact of “exact match,” think about the message they’re sending.

Derek Hunter, an author and contributor to The Daily Caller, summed it up best.

“Georgia Democrats are complaining that the state’s ‘exact match’ law, meaning people have to write their own name accurately on registration forms, is racist,” Hunter wrote on Twitter. “In other words, liberals don’t think minorities can write their own names. That’s pretty racist.”

That scathing take couldn’t be more true. Democrats are no strangers to racial double-standards, but these particular claims of racism go beyond that. At best, it shows a distinct misunderstanding of law, which is a damning sign for a political party. At worst, it shows a distinct willingness to lie and manipulate racial minorities no matter the cost, which should be even more damning.

Based on the Democrats’ track record, I’m inclined to believe the latter.

The Value of the Vote

Why is it so important to vote, and is it a moral decision? Sort of.

The constitution declares that this is a nation under the watchful eye of the Creator of the universe. As the author of all creation, He established this nation as a representative republic composed of a free and independent people, and as such, He gave us the right to choose who will represent us through our voting. As a free people, we have a right to choose not to fulfill this responsibility to our government, be disobedient to God, and to suffer the consequences. If we do not vote, then we can not complain about the outcome.

In the past, we have elected a crook and a cheat (Nixon), two Philanderers (Kennedy and Clinton) and none of the presidents for the last century have been particularly religious or even moral, and we have elected them to be leaders and presidents, and not priests or prophets. Our obligation, this election is to determine who will best represent all the people. Let us look at only four major issues that we are all concerned with, the preservation of our form of government, the preservation of our sovereignty, the preservation of our security, and the preservation and advancement of our economy.

Preservation of our form of government – The third branch of our government, The Judiciary, needs to be composed of strict constitutionalists who are not trying to be legislators as well. If we need to change laws, we have The Legislative branch, voted in as representatives of the people to do this. Changing laws is not the judge’s mandate. We do not need to change or reinterpret the framework, and it does not need to be modernized. It works perfectly well the way it is.

Preservation of our sovereignty – Immigration is out of control, and it has been since way before Ronald Reagan. Why are we the only nation on earth that doesn’t even try to control who comes here? Just try to go to Mecca. The solution is simple. Close the borders, then control who we want in. Implementing that is not so simple, but it is necessary to try.

Preservation of our security – Throughout history, there has never been a less imperialistic country than the US. Americans have a desire for peace and a distaste for war, but it is insane not to fight like we are at war with those who war against us. As the most powerful country in the world, we need to fight to win and fight to eliminate future wars. The war in the Middle East has cost the lives of over 370,000 people, over 7million have lost their homes, and we have spent over 61 billion dollars. It is about time to put an end to this swiftly and decisively.

Preservation and advancement of our economy – For the past 8 years the economy has slumped along as the worst recovery in modern times and the government has had no effect on a recovery that naturally would bounce back after all this time, without the government interfering. The do-nothing political posture needs to stop regulating businesses to death and chasing them out of the country with oppressive taxes. Stop this “fair share” mantra and do what is necessary for us all to prosper. If we are arguing about splitting up a piece of pie, bake more pies and we will all have more.

Yes, there are more concerns, but if any candidate will even attempt to tackle just these four issues that the present government has ignored and done nothing about, then it doesn’t matter if they are a saint or a sinner, a professional politician or a novice, or even if you like them. We need to get rid of the do-nothing government we have and elect someone who will at least try to bring this country back on a winning track, winning for all Americans.

ABC News Interview Goes All Wrong… Dem Delegate Goes Rogue on Live TV


waving flagBy: John Falkenberg on July 27, 2016

In a massive embarrassment to Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, a delegate to the Democrat National Convention announced on the air that he would not be voting for Hillary come the fall because of her dishonesty.

Speaking with ABC reporter Jonathan Karl in Philadelphia, where the convention was being held, he dropped the bombshell: “As far as president, I will not be voting for Hillary Clinton.”

As you can imagine, Karl was shocked.

“You are a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and you are not going to be voting for Hillary Clinton. Why?” he asked.

And as one might expect, the delegate mentioned her gross mishandling of her private email server scandal as evidence of her dishonesty and impetus for voting against her.

“Well, it’s really just as simple as I feel as if she hasn’t been honest with us, and the fact of the matter is, she said for over a year there (was) no classified information sent or received on her private email server, and the FBI said that’s not true,” he said.

“She wouldn’t even call it an investigation,” he added. “She called it a security review. If she’s not even going to be honest about the nature of that investigation, what else can we expect? I have no love for (GOP nominee Donald) Trump, but I also have no love for Hillary.”

It’s nice to see some delegates with a sound head still on their shoulders, even at the Democrat convention.

Should he be able to withstand the pressure to vote for Hillary Clinton, and if GOP nominee Donald Trump isn’t an option, he will almost certainly fall to one of the two significant party candidates — Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Or, he might just stay home. We’re OK with any of those options.

HORROR: Terror Group Rallies American Muslims In Effort To End Donald Trump


waving flagBy: Davis on March 26, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/terror-group-muslims

While billionaire businessman Donald Trump has enjoyed a large amount of popularity among Republicans and independents, many groups, and even a few countries, have been working hard to stop his rise.

The New York Times reported that the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other radical Islamic groups in America are attempting to register Muslims as voters in the hope of stopping Trump at the ballot box. CAIR, which according to Breitbart has been linked by the FBI to several terror groups, has decided that rather than condemn the actions of the Islamic State terror group, they would prefer to stop the man speaking out against radical Islamic terrorism.

“The fear and apprehension in the American Muslim community has never been at this level,” Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for CAIR, stated. “The anti-Islamic tidal wave is spurring civic participation.”Bull

America Never Forget

That supposed “anti-islamic tidal wave,” to the degree that it exists at all, would be actually the result of the population getting sick and tired of radical Islamic terror attacks occurring on a regular basis. But let’s not worry about little things like truth and logic when there is political hay to be made.

Bigotry, we’re afraid, will never die. But perhaps if the Muslim community would stand up, accept that their religion has a problem, and work to fix that problem, they wouldn’t have to be treated with as much fear and suspicion.

“The community is very anxious and afraid about our security with all the rhetoric that we hear,” said Ghazala Salam, the president of the American Muslim Democratic Caucus of Florida.culture of deceit and lies

Americans are afraid about their security and safety because radical Islamic terrorists have been trying to infiltrate our country — with some success already — and trying to kill all of us. Somehow being “afraid” of hurtful words doesn’t seem on the same level as being afraid of hearing “Allahu Akbar” and then gunshots or a massive explosion.

If only CAIR would work as hard at eliminating radical Islamic terrorism as they do fighting Republicans. If they put that kind of effort into it, we wouldn’t need to even talk about them anymore.

LESSER OF TWO EVILS? Statement on Christian Voting

two cherriesStatement on Christian Voting from the Christian Emergency League

The decision to vote for a candidate is a weighty duty. Exodus 18:20, though not directly speaking about voting for candidates, specifies that those invested with political authority should be men who fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness. The Apostle Paul in Romans 13 describes those who serve in government as ministers of God. Those who serve must know that they will one day give account to Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. All those who vote also must recognize that they are equally responsible to King Jesus. Voters must not compromise principles they hold outside of the voting booth on Election Day.

Often conservative voters are conflicted when a race leaves only the lesser of two evils. The Christian Emergency League encourages a different mindset than just voting for the lesser of two or three or more evils. Rather than just asking which candidate is the lesser of two evils, should you not rather ask, does a candidate truly deserve your vote?

Sometimes Christians are accused of being single-issue voters. What fools we are if we think the pro-life position is a line that cannot be crossed. But what fools we are if we think supporting candidates who will not speak for the voiceless, will be your voice in Springfield or Washington. Can we expect God to bless a vote for someone who will not seek to protect innocent life?

It must be freely admitted voting based on principles may lead to additional years of incompetent and corrupt rule under someone like Gov. Quinn in the state of Illinois.

The Christian Emergency League is well aware that social conservative Christians may be singled out for blame. This we submit is a small burden in defense of principle and truth. We further submit that the damage to truly conservative and Christian principles caused by a compromised politician like Mr. Rauner is greater than what Gov. Quinn can bring. Let us hope and pray that Rauner becomes a byword in Illinois politics save his repentance.

It is abundantly clear from Jesus teaching that He desires for His followers to be “Salt and Light” in this corrupt world. “Salt is a preservative that slows the putrefaction process. “Light” exposes the truth hiding in the darkness, because as Jesus taught in John 3:19-21, that men love darkness instead of light because they know that their deeds are evil.

One of the greatest ways a Christian can be “Salt and Light” is to vote. Staying home, doing nothing, plays into the hands of the Prince of Darkness’ rule. One reason our country is in such a mess is that 40%, or more, of Evangelical Christians stay home on voting day. That is abundant sin. That stands diametrically opposed to God because He created this country to be a source of spreading the Gospel worldwide. He gave us this nation, founded by His appointed men, to create a nation of freedoms that is based on His Word, God’s administration in Heaven, and His purpose for our religious freedom opposing any and all forms of oppression.

As a Christian, I am often ashamed the Church in America. While our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering unspeakable suffering in persecution around the world, we have become so apathetic and listless. I hear supposed Christians say that they don’t want to make people turned off from the Gospel by expressing a political opinion, or standing for righteousness and holiness. That is a lie right out of the pit of hell. The human fallen spirit hates the light because it exposes everything they hold to be dear. They know their wrong. They know their sinners. With Adam’s fall, came the knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong, as Paul said to the Romans in chapter one, all men are without excuse before God because all men are born with that knowledge. That is the reason that the persecution of the Church worldwide, is growing in intensity here in America. We will see more persecution than ever before in history. Jesus said that they will kill us thinking they are doing God a service. However, a vast majority of American Christians have no idea that the persecution they are trying to avoid, will eventually trigger the falling away of believers Jesus foretold would happen, just before the end of days, and His return.

Hopefully you can feel my heart as I write this. I am torn up inside knowing what is about to happen. The question remains, what are YOU going to do?

Christians May Be Unwittingly Hastening America’s Transformation


Obamacare

Susan Calloway KnowlesOctober 11, 2014

Read more at http://joeforamerica.com/2014/10/christians-may-unwittingly-hastening-americas-transformation/

It’s a bold statement to make that Christians may be unwittingly hastening America’s transformation but it needs to be said.

Most Christians would be shocked to think that they had anything to do with negatively impacting the country that they love so much and have, in many cases, even fought to protect.

However, it needs to be discussed because America as we know it is being changed beyond recognition on a daily basis.

As state primaries occur and as the 2016 elections draw near, it is high time that Christians recognize their invaluable potential in changing the course of our country.

For far too long now, many Christians have chosen to stay home instead of getting out to vote in national, state, and local elections. The reasons vary for their apathy, but commonly there are two factors which keep Christians home.

Either Christians believe that there is no one worth electing because the candidate does not hold their same Biblical beliefs or Christians wonder if they, pursuant to Biblical principles, should even vote at all.

While I am not a Biblical scholar, I know one thing for certain and that is the Bible is not filled with a lot of indifference or the absence of actions taken by Christians.salt and light

David didn’t slay Goliath by staying home. Joshua didn’t bring down the walls of Jericho by refusing to obey God’s direction to join in the battle.

Certainly, Christ didn’t raise Lazarus from the dead by choosing not to travel to Bethany. Christ was anything but apathetic. He stood for truth and continued to speak out until the day He was crucified. He was and is a model for Christians to follow.

Christians have many modern day battles that call for them to respond. Every day in the news there are stories about Planned Parenthood and their continuing efforts to abort unborn children. Christians can effectuate positive change in this area by opposing congressional, presidential, or even state and local candidates who are in favor of abortion.

By not voting, Christians are tacitly showing their approval or at least not voicing their opposition to this highly controversial issue.

Additionally, problems involving the education of Christian children are at the core of Biblical principles and need the support of Christians everywhere. Issues regarding how children are raised and the principles they are taught are at the forefront of importance to most parents or guardians. Only parents or guardians should determine what is ultimately appropriate for their children to learn or eat in school, not the government. Parents or guardians need to attend local school board meetings, extracurricular school activities, and other important school meetings concerning their children to ensure that moral principles are being taught. Christians standing up and speaking out in local school districts is a reminder to government that parents, not government, are ultimately in charge of their children’s education.

Parents may also have to consider changing school districts, enrolling their child into charter schools, searching for faith-based programs, or looking at the benefits of homeschooling in order to remain in control. Recently, it was discovered, that while spending less toward each child’s education, charter schools, produce far better educational results than do traditional public schools. Charter schools, typically do not get extensive funding that traditional public schools receive from the federal government. What charter schools do receive, however, appears to be used more efficiently. In addition, because charter schools are not heavily funded by the government, they appear far more receptive to parent decision-making in their programs.

You may recall earlier this year, that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, moved to prevent three charter schools from using public space. His actions caused some charter schools to close. His unilateral decision, took the issue out of the hands of parents and placed it solely in the hands of government. De Blasio only began to backtrack on his decision when those who had helped him get elected, began to voice their displeasure because their children attended the very charter schools he closed. Had proponents not raised concerns, de Blasio’s plan to rid New York City of charter schools may have succeeded, leaving parents with one less excellent choice.

To paraphrase, Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, according to Matthew 5:13-14. Remaining complacent, when it comes to the important issues in this country that impact our children and our constitutional rights, surely is not what God envisioned for Christians when He said those words.salt and light

Freedom of choice allows all of us to continue to shape this country and this world. This does not mean taking away the rights of others in the process. What it does mean, however, and what history has shown us is that we are obligated to be preservers of the truth and freedom until the very end.

Christians may hold the key to stopping or at least slowing the transformation of this country into an unrecognizable nation. Taking no action guarantees that we will continue to see our constitutional rights eroded and our right to speak out as Christians eventually suppressed.

Choose this election season to make a difference for yourself, your children, and others! Get out and vote

Written by Allen West on April 18, 2014

Slide1

10. I’ll vote Democrat because I can’t wait for college football season to be delayed or cancelled because the student athletes are union employees.

9. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe oil company’s profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

8. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

7. I’ll vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

6. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

5. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

4. I’ll vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the Social Security from those who paid into it.

3. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should NOT be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

2. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

And the Number One reason I’ll vote Democrat is:

1. I’ll vote Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, fish or frog.


Get Your Head Out of The Sand: Why You Need to Care About Politics

Get Your Head Out of the Sand

“I don’t care to keep up with politics.” Ever heard that before? I’ll bet you have. This statement should strike the heart of every American, yet what’s even more appalling is someone who doesn’t care, and votes in the major elections. Politics are the driving force of your country that has the power to change every aspect of your life, and you’re telling me you don’t care?! I bet I can guess who you voted for in the presidential election…

When people don’t care about politics, they don’t care about who is representing them and their community to the nation.

Being involved in politics is the best, and cheapest, way to really make an impact on the world. It’s free for your wallet since no body expects monthly payments, and there is no contract. You get out what you are willing to put in to it.

When you are up to date on all the politicians’ values and their voting record, come Election time, it’s less likely that you will be swayed by a catchy campaign phrase that’s paired with cool graphics and smooth words. You will know the real candidate and the truth behind their improbable promises, and free phones.

You should care about politics as much as you care about your finances. As often as you check your budget, you should check what your government is budgeting. Whenever you make a payment towards credit card interest, take a look at what your government is paying towards their interest. Why? Because that’s your money too, and right now your great grandkids are going to be getting the bill.

“It’s a lot of work, though.” Yeah, yeah it is. Anything that’s worth anything is gonna be hard to get. If the truth were easy to find, do you think half the politicians in office today would be there? If you’re ready to begin your search, subscribing to newsletters of people or patriotic sites is a great place to start. Personally, I am subscribed to Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Herman Cain, Girls Just Wanna Have Guns, Clash Daily, and the Morning Briefing by The Red State. It’s also helpful to subscribe to a couple members of the other Party to see what they are sending to their readers.

It’s also important to browse the Internet for multiple sources and references on a variety of topics. If you are getting all your information on the happenings of the Political Realm from only one source, there’s no way to gauge how accurate the story may be.

The moral of this story is to stop complaining, and start cramming! You are equally responsible for the state of the Nation as much as the politicians representing your district are. Can you name your governor? Your state’s House Representatives? How about your Members of Congress?

And that ladies and gentlemen, is why we all need to be involved in politics.

WE MUST NEVER FORGET

Freedom at Stake: Would You Vote If Your Liberty Depended On It?


http://clashdaily.com/2014/02/vote-liberty-depended/#Yksys08IGiBLX24T.99

Liberty_Bell_2

There is no such thing as an American disinterested in liberty.  America is all about liberty. No other word is more closely associated with the idea of America as the word “liberty”.

The Liberty Bell is engraved with a passage taken from Leviticus 25:10:  “ . . . proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.”

Every U.S. coin bears the word liberty, along with the words “In God We Trust,” and “E. Pluribus Unum.

The word liberty is found in The Pledge: “ . . . with liberty and justice, for all.”

It is foremost in our founding documents.

The Declaration of Independence boldly states:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The Preamble to the Constitution:  “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

The Declaration states liberty is unalienable, a God-given right.  Flowing out of the Declaration, the Constitution was established to “secure the Blessings of Liberty.”  That same Constitution prescribes terms for representative government, voting rights, citizenship duties, the rule of law, and the consent of the governed.

The U.S. government is “of, by and for the people,” according to Abraham Lincoln, echoing original principles.  If the people do not control the government, the government will control the people.

Citizenship duty in America is a privilege and an honor and a duty, because preserving liberty is our aim.   Reading up on the issues and candidates of the day is a duty.

Voting every election is a duty, a sacred duty.

As believers we have a duty to be salt and light in all aspects of our lives.  We have a duty to speak the truth in love.  We have a duty to contend for righteousness in the public square, and we have a duty to protect and defend the sacred rights of others, especially the weak and the dispossessed.  We have a duty to protect and defend the liberty of everyone, even those who oppose us, even those who may even seek our political destruction.    Unless citizens hold politicians accountable by voting, liberty is lost.  Politicians given free reign tend to ignore the consent of the governed, trending toward tyranny.

A true American citizen is interested in preserving liberty, and understands that citizen participation is absolutely essential to its preservation.   For many decades in the community of faith, voter turnout has declined.  There are 58 million evangelicals in our country eligible to vote.  In the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections, only 33 million actually voted.  In 2012 it was worse.  Only 30 million voted:  28 million stayed at home.

We have the power of the vote, and we have the right to use that power to preserve liberty “for ourselves and for our posterity.”   Asking people to vote does not seem like much to ask, especially when you consider that more than 2 million people made the ultimate sacrifice to give us that right.

Register and vote to honor their sacrifice.  Register and vote to protect liberty.  Register and vote to secure the blessings of liberty for our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren.   Register and vote because it’s your sacred duty.

When Benjamin Franklin appeared in public at the end of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, it is said a woman asked him, “What have you given us, a republic or a monarchy?”

Mr. Franklin replied, “A republic, madam – if you can keep it.”

THANKS A LOT SANDY


The aftermath of Sandy defies description.

  • Three feet of Snow in West Virginia;
  • Several inches of sand covering everything several miles inland in New Jersey;
  • The front of a building in New York City completely blown off;
  • A wind-blown fire wiping out 80 homes;
  • Millions of people without power, safe drinking water and uncertain sewers;
  • Transportation interrupted, especially flights.

I have prayed, and I hope you have been too, for the victims of this historic storm. Such devastation boggles the mind and the cost of recovery will be staggering, especially because we’re broke as a nation.

However, Americans have always rallied behind our fellow citizens who are suffering and in need. We will respond again. Already all the forces of good and caring are at work meeting needs and bring comfort. No, I am not including the government.

I have no doubt that needs will be met, rebuilding will happen and “normal” will one day be reestablished. However, I am extremely concerned about a disaster no one is talking about, and “normal” may never be realized again has a result of that disaster. I am referring to the Presidential Election coming up next Tuesday. The storm has opened wider that opportunity for Leftist voting shenanigans.

With all the arguments over Voter Registration, Voter I.D. and Voter Fraud, this natural disaster has provided and added opportunity to make the corrupt more powerful. Consider the national debate;

  • The Left opposes Voter I.D. because they curry the favor of people who are here illegally. I.D.s exposes the fraud.
  • In Florida, over 50,000 people that are on the voting registration rolls are deceased. How many do you think will rise from the dead and vote?
  • The introduction of early voting has given the Left more time to encourage fraud by multiple votes from some people.
  • The Left has already manipulated the Military Vote into nonexistence because they know the Military votes predominately Republican.
  • California has already announced they will not be counting the mailed in ballots, as they did in 2008, because they claim it won’t make a difference in the outcome.
  • The U.N. has been invited again to “observe” our voting because the U.N. has been told that Republicans repress the vote in certain areas prohibiting poor and elderly people from voting.
  • With the power off, some areas will have to go to paper ballots opening the doors for screams of voting irregularity should the Left loose. Yes, it has been reported that the lawsuits have already been drawn up and ready for filing should Mitt Romney win. You’ve also heard how the Left has already arranged riots in strategic areas should Mitt Romney win. That will open the door for Marshall Law to be established, and the election deemed null and void.
  • Like in California, the Registrar of Voters has admitted that many citizens are registered in multiple cities and can’t do anything about that person from voting in each location.
  • There is no way to determine the number of illegal votes in the States that have not passed Voter I.D. laws.
  • Like I said, opened doors more even more voting shenanigans, especially should the election be extended because of Sandy’s destruction.

For conservatives in California elections are becoming a farce. For over 50 years the Left files lawsuits if measures don’t go their way. The courts are so corrupt and Left, that most of the time the Left wins. More and more I hear people say, “Why vote when the Democrats go to court and get the election overturned.” And here the Left is the one always screaming about voter repression. California leads the nation in voter repression because the Left always wins in court when we do not vote their way.

For my house and me, we will vote. We refuse to give up. The drums of revolutionary war are getting louder every day. Will we see a revolution in our day? I’m not sure anymore. I am not armed, and that worries me.

Hopefully God is hearing our prayers asking Him to forgive our sins and heal our land. However, our nation has reached levels of inequity that dwarfs Biblical Israel. They were rightly judged for their turn from God. America deserves the same. Is there a remnant of believers big enough for God to withhold His hand? I don’t know. I am praying He heals instead of punishes. What are you praying for?
