    WASHINGTON― Planned Parenthood announced Friday that it will start registering voters at its clinics, on college campuses, online and at other locations, “regardless of their background, beliefs, or political ideology,” in an effort to get disenfranchised populations more involved in the political process. The non-partisan campaign, called “My Vote, My Voice,” has the potential to reach a lot of people who don’t normally vote in presidential campaigns. Volunteers across 45 states will set up “action” tables outside of Planned Parenthood health centers and other locations in the community to sign people up to vote, educate them about voter ID laws...

    WASHINGTON ― A bill introduced this week in Congress could automatically make as many as 50 million people eligible to join the electorate. Democratic lawmakers proposed what they call the Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2016 to streamline the registration process. Voter turnout in the U.S. typically falls behind other developed countries.

    A federal lawsuit alleging widespread confusion over California's presidential primary rules asks that voter registration be extended past Monday's deadline until the day of the state's primary election on June 7. "Mistakes are being made," said William Simpich, an Oakland civil rights attorney who filed the lawsuit. At issue is whether voters understand the rules for the presidential primary, which differ from those governing other elections in California. Unlike statewide primaries -- where voters now choose any candidate, no matter the political party -- the presidential contests are controlled by the parties themselves. Democrats have opened up their primary to...

    Supporters of mandatory gun registration had argued that the police had been calling for this simple measure to increase firearm safety. In Switzerland we register cars. It is odd not to do it for guns whose primary aim is to kill. It would allow us to save lives and avoid family shootings, said Green Party senator Luc Recordon.

    Jews in Eastern Ukraine are being blamed for supporting the revolution that forced pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych to flee the country. Armed men handed out a leaflet on Passover eve telling Jews to register or face confiscation of their property.The Mad Jewess reported: From a commenter at The Mad Jewess: I am able to read that document. What it says is that Jews supported the Junta in Kiev (the Bandera fascists) and are hostile to the Orthodox Republic of Donetsk and its citizens, and therefore must register or be expelled from the Republic and have their property confiscated.

    Gun owners know that registration always leads to confiscation. Joseph Stalins firearms confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people after he took their guns. (Zinnfigur)

    Congress passed a historically low number of laws in 2013, but the executive branch bureaucrats who write the nation's federal regulations remained as busy as ever, as Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, demonstrated with a single picture. "Behold my display of the 2013 Federal Register," Lee wrote in a caption for a photo posted to his Facebook page on Friday. "It contains over 80,000 pages of new rules, regulations, and notices all written and passed by unelected bureaucrats. The small stack of papers on top of the display are the laws passed by elected members of Congress and signed into law...

    FULL TITLE: Child rapists taken off Sex Offenders' Register in secret... and police say it's to protect their human rights Police have secretly removed dozens of convicted sex offenders, including paedophiles and rapists, from the Sex Offenders Register, the Mail can reveal. Following a human rights ruling, the law was changed last year to allow sex attackers to claim they no longer posed a threat and apply to be taken off the register. Since then, 43 applications have been approved behind closed doors, at the rate of one every five days. About half of those who apply have been successful...

    Iowa's biggest newspaper is under fire after publishing a map that showed which public school districts have police or security -- and which ones don't. Critics said the Des Moines Register, which quickly pulled the interactive map off of its website, was making it easy for a deranged killer to know where to launch a Sandy Hook-style attack. "What they did yesterday was provide a shopping list for every nut job in Iowa," WHO radio host Simon Conway, who said his phone lines "blew up" as soon as he began discussing the map with his audience, told Fox News Channel....

    The Resistance Begins: New York Gun Owners Refuse to Register; Largest Act of Civil Disobedience in State History Mac Slavo January 25th, 2013 With emotions running high in the aftermath of the Newtown Sandy Hook shooting, politicians on the State and Federal level have begun introducing legislative actions to curtail access to firearms protected by the Second Amendment. In Missouri, parents may soon be forced to register firearms with their childs school under threat of criminal penalties. In Massachusetts, another proposal would require storage of semi-automatic rifles at government approved storage depots. And, in the State of New York, congressional...

    National German gun registry on target for launch The German interior minister has said a countrywide database of all legal gun owners is set for launch on January 1. Hans-Peter Friedrich predicted a "considerable increase in security" as a result. The German government plans to launch its complete registry of legal gun owners at the beginning of next year, two years ahead of a deadline set by the EU. As with many German authorities, those responsible for weapons licensing and tracking operated on a local basis - with a total of 551 authorities around the country. Under new EU laws,...

    Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter dismissed the Des Moines Register endorsement of Mitt Romney, saying it was not based at all in reality. They endorsed Mitt Romney in the primary, so this was not much of a surprise, said Cutter on ABCs This Week, referring to the influential swing-state papers backing of the GOP candidate. It was a little surprising to read that editorial, because it didn't seem to be based at all in reality, not just in the president's record, but in Mitt Romney's record, Cutter added. It says that he'd reach across the aisle, which he'd do...

    There are obviously verifiable vote fraud problems in North Carolina. In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article: Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina--not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes...

    The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is proud to announce the launch of a breakthrough database that provides a dramatically improved measure of the federal regulatory burden. RegData is the first database to count the actual number of restrictions in the Code of Federal Regulations, as opposed to the former method of simply counting total pages. The interactive tool enables a far more focused view of the regulatory burden by measuring the growth of regulation by industry. While previous methods provided an idea of the growth of overall regulation, they told nothing about how those regulations affected specific sectors...

    Beijing city authorities on Friday issued new rules requiring microbloggers to register their real names before posting online, as the Chinese government tightens its grip on the Internet. The city government now requires users of weibos -- the Chinese version of Twitter -- to give their real names to website administrators, its official news portal said. The new rules will apply to weibo operators based in Beijing, which include Sina -- owner of China's most popular microblogging service which has more than 200 million users. "Websites with weibo operations must establish and improve a system of content censorship," according to...

    "All eligible citizens can and should be automatically registered to vote," and it's the government's "responsibility" to see that it happens, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday. In a call to modernize voter registration, Holder noted that many elections officials still are manually processing new applications, many of them handwritten -- a situation that produces errors and confusion at the polls, he said.
