    This was one of those great, clarifying moments. The agenda of the left has been laid bare. Forget about “Dreamers,” about “pathways to citizenship,” blah, blah, blah. It’s much — much — more extreme than that. The end game is this: the left wants illegals to be allowed to vote. Period. End of sentence. For proof, look no further than the statements on Tucker Carlson’s show this evening by Cesar Vargas, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who somehow has been allowed to become a member of the New York State Bar. Asked by Carlson whether illegal immigrants should be allowed...

    Subtitle: The Wisdom of the 14th Amendment. After a quick look at Section 1, this squib takes a closer read of Sections 2 & 3 of the 14th Amendment. We’ll find that, as opposed to recent times, Congress expected itself, rather than federal courts, to sort out and deal with difficult issues. In the latter 1860s that meant incorporating former slaves into the civil society. In the hands of the far Left, an amendment designed to deal with post-Civil War realities is the modern Progressive’s favorite means to social justice. From a hopeless mash of conflicting decisions, Scotus determined, for...

    The Anthony trial of 1873 helped answer the important question of whether women as "citizens" under the recently adopted Fourteenth Amendment were entitled, as one of the "privileges and immunities" that came with citizenship, to vote. The answer given by prim and conservative Justice Ward Hunt will surprise few, but the trial also shows Hunt with his hands full, not quite knowing how to shut up his feisty defendant. Read now about what "Aunt Susan" described in her diary as "the greatest outrage in judicial history!"

    Actual due process would involve verifying the right to vote The alleged perpetrator of the Sept. 23 Cascade Mall shooting spree in Burlington, Washington managed to vote three times even though he is not a U.S. citizen. State records reportedly show that Arcan Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the presidential primary in May of this year.

  • Supremes: citizenship not necessary for voter registration

    In a commonsense decision, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of a case that decided that people registering to vote in federal election don't have to prove their citizenship. That means that people registering to vote won't be bullied into proving citizenship, which now seems to be an irrelevant criterion for voting. “I am very pleased, obviously,” said Dolores Furtado, president of the Kansas chapter of the League of Women Voters. “It’s a good feeling because we’re truly trying to help” people get registered to vote. Furtado said the league’s main interest is in increasing participation in the...

    On Tuesday, every one of We the People who is old enough needs to get out and vote. Period. No excuses. The Democrats have nearly destroyed free, capitalist, constitutional America, and if they are not soundly, roundly, and decisively defeated, they will do so. Period. Repeat, PERIOD. Misleadership of the party – McConnell, Boehner, and their lackeys and toadies – have made it painfully clear that they are not conservatives I have no illusions that a Republican victory will take us back to the Reagan years. The misleadership of the party – McConnell, Boehner, and their lackeys and toadies –...

    A week ago I was at McDonald's ordering lunch. It was very busy and there was a large crowd present. I ordered the food and waited around for a few minutes. While I was doing so, a manager and another crewmemeber were getting ready to put the flags up on the pole. The manager showed him how to fold the flags up and they folded up old glory into a nice triangle with loving and patriotic care. While they were folding the McDonald's flag, a funny looking woman in her thirties with two tots in a carriage walked up to...

    An appeals court ruling has trashed the right of Oregon residents to vote on issues in their state by affirming the state's refusal to count referendum signatures even when they were verified in person by the voter. "In America, every citizen's vote should count. The court has tossed aside one of the most important rights we have as Americans," Austin R. Nimocks, a senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, said. "Oregon voters deserve to be heard on this referendum. More than enough Oregonians signed the petitions for it. The people didn't thwart this effort; government bureaucracy did. That...

    BOSTON - Dozens of people on both sides of the gay marriage debate rallied Wednesday outside the Statehouse, where a series of proposed constitutional amendments awaiting lawmakers' consideration included one that would define marriage as the union of a man and woman. Demonstrators held signs, waved banners, sang songs and urged passing motorists to honk in support of their cause. "I think this is an issue for the people to decide," said Jonathan Gal, 39, of Lexington, wearing a sticker that read "Support One Man, One Woman." "I don't like the way this is being imposed on us by a...

    A story by Mike Allen and R. Jeffrey Smith in the Washington Post on 3 August, 2005, reviewed many of the background documents just released concerning Judge John Roberts, nominee for the US Supreme Court. The article’s title got the subject right, “Judges Should Have 'Limited' Role, Roberts Says.” However, once the authors got into the basis of Griswold v. Connecticut and Roe v. Wade, their understanding of the subject evaporated. The article said, “The new documents disclosed by the archive that reflect Roberts' skeptical views regarding a ‘fundamental’ right to privacy include a lengthy article on judicial restraint that...

    ...A measure to protect voters' rights -- passed by Congress to prevent a repeat of the 2000 voting debacles -- gives voters a place to turn if they have complaints about the way polling went yesterday or want to know whether their "provisional" ballots were actually counted . At the same time, some partisan and nonpartisan groups are urging voters to stay involved in the election process in the days ahead. The new procedures don't hinge on whether overall election results are in doubt. Indeed, despite glitches and problems here and there, the overall litany of problems wasn't as long...
