    [snip] Vision America works with pastors to encourage Christians around the country to vote and participate in elections. Their nonpartisan voter guide for Texas shows where both candidates stand on issues like the Supreme Court, right to life, and protecting religious liberty. Over the weekend, however, an unknown person made fraudulent copies of the guides changing the text of the issues and mixed them into piles passed out at multiple churches in Texas. "They snuck into churches to deceive church members," said Graves. "I've been around this for over 25 years and I've never seen or heard anything like that."...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expressed confidence on Monday that Democrats would easily win back the House if the midterm elections were held today. “If the election were held today, the Democrats would handily win the House,” Pelosi said during a CNN political forum. “I can only speak in the present tense, because you never know in another couple of weeks. … I’m telling you what would happen today.” “But we fully intend to own the ground, not yield one grain of sand, and get out the vote,” she added. “And that makes all the difference.” With just two...

    Failed Ex-POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama appearing at the UNLV, Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday was able to muster a paltry 2000 people (Buzz Feed News) with the aide of using the well known group of "Salt & Pepper" as the magnet to attract rally attendees. Ex-Vice President, Joe Biden. last Saturday was not as fortunate as Obama, as he was only able to draw a further paltry 193-500 folks (POTUS, Trump says 193 people attended) in a sad union hall political rally in Las Vegas, Nevada. Current POTUS, Donald J.Trump drew some 35,000 plus supporters last evening at a "MASSIVE" "ENERGY...

    In an exclusive poll by KVLY, KFYR and Strategic Research Associates of 650 likely voters in North Dakota conducted between October 12 -19, 2018, challenger Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., leads incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., 56 percent to 40 percent, increasing his lead since Gray Television’s September poll, in which Cramer held a 10-point advantage. Heitkamp is viewed favorably by 37 percent of North Dakota voters and unfavorably by 52 percent
  • Missoula, Montana City Council Institutes ‘Emergency’ Gun Ban in Advance of Elections

    10/22/2018 11:02:57 AM PDT · by Simon Green · 27 replies
    From KGVO and AP, we learn that the infamous city council of Missoula, Montana, voted eight to three in favor of two bans on legally owned guns in public places. Both of the bans outlaw the possession of firearms at all polling places, parks, schools, museums, libraries and city council chambers. The first is an ’emergency’ ordinance, effective immediately, and additionally includes a clause banning guns in “any other locations of public assembly where persons gather together to conduct and/or administer any public election while election-related activities are taking place.” This first ordinance will last 90 days. The second, follow-up...

    RUSH: Folks, I’m gonna just tell you right now. I don’t believe, and I haven’t believed for a long time, that there has been this slam-dunk blue wave. What we’re being told right now is that six months ago, nine months ago, all the way back to December when the first generic ballots polls were taken, that the Democrats had a 12- to 13-point advantage, that the American people realized their mistake electing Trump and Republicans and couldn’t wait to put Democrats back in power. Now, that argued against real life. Real life since 2010 is the Democrats have been...

    Don't talk about the Red-Wave, be part of it to save America, to save your freedom, to save your families, to save your future THIS will ask the undeniable question: Are you aware of just how close we are to losing our Constitutional Republic? President Trump recently said that many people have told him that they will not be voting in the midterms because he was not on the ballot. So why vote? What part about THIS do these people not understand? Hopefully, you are not one of them, because nothing could be further from the truth. PDJT and his...

    It is either gall, or desperation*, perhaps, to post this, but I think Rush is wrong, in a sense, about not exhorting his listeners to be strongly involved in elections. He says they need no encouragement to vote, which may be true. But, the problem is, we need them to do more than vote. We need them to drag along friends or relatives, man the phones, volunteer to help out, etc., all in the GOTV effort. This may apply to some of us (FReepers) too. Many already help a lot, but some of us, myself included, need to do more....

    “They say it doesn’t do anything,” said Lugo, 56, a promoter for a footwear chain. “And it doesn’t matter who votes because (politicians) do whatever they want anyway.”Trump rode to his improbable victory in 2016 by winning a troika of Rust Belt states where there are relatively few Latinos. This was supposed to be the election Latinos struck back.Many Democrats presumed that Latinos, who are largely clustered in a handful of states, would be better-positioned to flex their muscles and punish the president for his actions and rhetoric targeting Latino immigrants — most recently when he pledged to send troops...

    American Spectator ^ | Oct 20, 2018 | Robert Stacey McCain
    As a mob of thousands of migrants made their way north from Honduras toward the U.S. border last week, events in a closely-watched congressional race took an important turn. Politico reported that Democrats had pulled resources out of their campaign against Republican Rep. Will Hurd in the 23rd District of Texas. If their national leadership has ceded TX23 — one of the most competitive districts in the country — Democrats’ chance of a Nov. 6 “blue wave” is now in serious doubt. The connection between the American midterm election and the northbound caravan of Honduran migrants is probably not a...

    Over the next several weeks, Americans will be going to the polls in the most eagerly anticipated and consequential mid-term election in our nation’s history. Voters will decide whether to continue the President’s agenda which includes cutting regulations and taxes, boosting our military, renegotiating our trade deals, and focusing on border security. This agenda has produced incredible economic results in less than two years. This week, the World Economic Forum rated the United States as the most competitive economy among the 140 countries ranked. This is the first time since 2008 that the United States has topped this important list....

    No American should be confused or undecided this November. If America falls, the world will fall with it With all that is going on today in our social and political culture, especially the audacious unmasking of what liberals and the Democrat Party are now demanding, it would not be difficult to imagine an America ruled by the Left, the modern liberal, the modern Democrat Party. I say modern liberal because it is a far cry from the classic liberal of the forgotten past. The classic liberal would advocate Constitutional Republicanism, a limited government with basic inalienable rights entrusted upon its...

    A woman arrested on voter fraud charges just two weeks ago was arrested again Friday afternoon on new charges. Modesta Vela, 60, was arrested Friday afternoon at the nonprofit food pantry in Roma, confirmed Brenda Lee, spokesperson for the Starr County Special Crimes Unit. SCU investigators served Vela with four arrest warrants related to voter fraud, Lee said, which 229th District Attorney Omar Escobar clarified were for charges of tampering with a government record. Escobar said those records, in this case, referred to voter registration applications. A bond of $15,000 was set for each count. The arrest was a result...
