    The State of California is on track to issue a total of one million driver’s licenses to illegal aliens by the end of 2017. In 2013, California lawmakers passed legislation that allowed illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses if they can prove to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) their identity and state residency. The plan was one of the largest victories to date by the open borders lobby. Years later, an estimated 905,000 illegal aliens have driver’s licenses in California, according to the Sacramento Bee, despite issuances beginning in 2015. The number of illegal aliens in California with driver’s...

    Requiring photo ID is “racist,” except when it’s done by Obama, the NAACP, unions, or any other liberals Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee recently announced that he wants to be the Democrats’ 2016 presidential candidate. In July 2011, Governor Chafee signed a bill that requires voters to show photo ID. In March 2012, Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID requirement, claiming that it was “racist.” However, the very same Justice Department requires photo ID for everyone who enters. So let’s say that someone is denied their right to vote because they don’t have voter ID, and they want to...

    President Trump plans to name Kris W. Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state who has pressed for aggressive measures to crack down on undocumented immigrants, to a long-promised commission to investigate voting fraud in the United States, a White House official said on Thursday. The commission is the official follow-through on Mr. Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that several million “illegals” voted for his Democratic rival and robbed him of a victory in the national popular vote. Mr. Kobach, who has championed the strictest voter identification laws in the country, will be the vice chairman of the commission, which is to be...

    RICHMOND — Gov. Terry McAuliffe has vetoed a bill that would require voters to submit photo ID when requesting a physical absentee ballot, calling it an “unnecessary and impractical barrier” to absentee voting. House Bill 1428, sponsored by Del. Hyland F. “Buddy” Fowler Jr., R-Hanover, would require any voter submitting an application for an absentee ballot by mail or by fax to submit with the application a copy of one of the forms of ID acceptable under current law. The bill would exempt from the requirement military and overseas voters and people with disabilities. “The requirement would not in any...

    Texas election officials have acknowledged that hundreds of people were allowed to bypass the state's toughest-in-the-nation voter ID law and improperly cast ballots in the November presidential election by signing a sworn statement instead of showing a photo ID. The chief election officers in two of the state's largest counties are now considering whether to refer cases to local prosecutors for potential perjury charges or violations of election law. Officials in many other areas say they will simply let the mistakes go, citing widespread confusion among poll workers and voters..."We don't consider it something that we want to go out...

    The League of Women Voters called for the election of Donald Trump to be voided on the grounds that the election was rigged. Chris Carson, president of the League of Women Voters maintains that "state laws requiring voters to show IDs before they are allowed to cast a ballot unduly restrict the franchise." "The whole point of democracy is to allow the people to govern themselves," Carson said. "Limiting the franchise to only those who can prove who they are narrows the base and excludes those who can't or won't agree to identify themselves. This conflicts with the principle of...

    Donald Trump’s recent statement that the upcoming election might be “rigged” set off a firestorm, with many on the left decrying his claim while many of his supporters saying that he was highlighting a serious problem. I am in neither of those camps, but believe that the nation does face a grave election integrity problem. It goes way back in time and has been worsening in recent years as techniques for manufacturing votes have been sharpened. Ballot fraud is illegal in all states, but some of them have taken steps intended to prevent it because a) it’s almost impossible to...

    WILMINGTON, N.C. (WNCN/WBTV) – Gov. Pat McCrory said he will ask the Supreme Court to weigh in on the voter ID law Wednesday. McCrory made the announcement during Donald Trump’s rally in Wilmington Tuesday afternoon. “There are thirty other states in the United States…over thirty other states…that know common sense shows you show an ID when you vote,” McCrory told the crowd. “Right? One person, one vote. That should be our rules.” The request comes after an appeals court decided it won’t delay enforcement of its ruling striking down the state’s photo identification requirement and other election restrictions, including reducing...

    Three federal courts have thrown out voter-ID laws in North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin in recent days. Left-wing judges accepted spurious evidence that such laws were racially discriminatory, and they also insisted there is little voter fraud to worry about. Last April, United States District Judge Lynn Adelman of Wisconsin claimed that “virtually no voter impersonation occurs” in Wisconsin and that “no evidence suggests that voter-impersonation fraud will become a problem at any time in the foreseeable future.” Despite such sweeping statements, polls show that the general public is worried about fraud and bureaucratic incompetence in voting. According to a...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit struck down voter ID requirements currently being challenged in Texas in a ruling Wednesday. In a 9-6 decision, the court ruled that the law had a discriminatory effect on minorities, a decision that will likely put this issue before the Supreme Court in the 2017 term. This makes the third straight court to rule against the Texas law; a Supreme Court decision in this case could have a national impact when it comes to requiring voters to show ID. According to the law’s detractors, the Texas requirements would have stopped...
  • Federal judge: Voters without ID may vote in November by signing affidavit

    People without photo identification will be able to vote in November's general election by signing an affidavit stating they could not obtain identification, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman issued a preliminary injunction order on Tuesday in a case challenging the state's law requiring voters to have photo identification, granting a request from the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU's request called for an affidavit option for voters who face a "reasonable impediment" to obtain a valid photo ID.

    A House committee rejected a measure Wednesday to require Coloradans to show a picture identification card if they are registering to vote immediately before an election. Rep. Don Coram, R-Montrose, who introduced HB1111, said it makes sense to require photo IDs to guard against anyone from fraudulently casting a ballot, especially that close to an election. ... The bill, which the House State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee killed on a party-line 5-4 vote, would have sent the idea to voters in November. Supporters said the state should do everything it can to ensure election integrity, even if there is...

    Speaking at the White House Thursday, on the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, President Barack Obama said that people do not take advantage of the lack of voter ID laws to cast fraudulent votes in other peoples’ names. The president based his conclusion on government data on the number of people the government prosecutes for this crime. “Sadly, too many states are making it harder for folks to vote—instituting photo ID laws that on the surface sound good,” said Obama. “But I am certain, because we’ve actually looked at the data on this, that almost nobody wakes up...

    The Justice Department has been, to say no more, unhelpful regarding attempts to fully investigate and properly punish the politicization and corruption of the Internal Revenue Service. Given the department’s seeming complicity in the coverup, would it not be appropriate to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS practice of suppressing the political activity of conservative groups? Civil forfeiture — the seizure of property suspected of being produced by, or involved with, crime — has become a lucrative business for lawless law enforcement. Civil forfeiture treats citizens worse than criminals, seizing the property of people neither convicted of nor...

    Gov. Paul LePage’s administration is facing a potential loss of federal funding to administer its food stamp program over concerns about state’s decision to put photos on cards used to access the benefits. Federal officials said in a letter to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday that recipients are being given information that makes it seem like they’re required to have their photos placed electronic benefit transfer cards, even though the program is voluntary. The Republican governor’s administration must make it clear to recipients that their decision to not have their photo placed on the card...

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States...
