  • A Texas woman voted while on probation. A judge just sentenced her to 5 years in prison.

    If she knew it was going to land her back in prison, Crystal Mason said she would have never cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election. The 43-year-old former tax preparer hadn't even planned on voting until her mother encouraged her to do it. She had only recently been released from federal prison for a 2012 tax fraud conviction, in which she pleaded guilty to inflating returns for her clients, her attorney, J. Warren St. John, told The Washington Post. She was still on community supervision at the time of the election - but no one, including her probation...

    The only Republican President since World War II not to get elected to a second term, George Herbert Walker Bush, has broken President Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment to speak ill of another Republican, President Donald Trump, in his new book, The Last Republicans. Perhaps the book in which Bush whacked Trump should have been called, “The Last RINOs” for in addition to calling Trump a “blowhard” Bush 41 saying he voted for Hillary Clinton: The new book, by author Mark K. Undegrove, consists mostly of interviews looking back at the Republican Party over the past few decades and explores the...

    Mail-in ballots are being received in Colorado today. The wife and I voted and dropped the ballot off at the city drop box. Due to US Postal Service employees having been caught throwing in the trash any suspected Republican ballot, I highly recommend voters drop their mail-in ballots in county or city ballot drop boxes. We voted for Trump! If Hillary wins, kiss your standard of living goodbye even more so than has happened in the past 8 years. Heck, you might even have to kiss your own butt goodbye since there will no doubt be even more assaults on...
  • Investigators may probe Cascade Mall suspect's citizenship status, voting record

    The Cascade Mall shooting suspect, Arcan Cetin, may face an additional investigation related to his voting record and citizenship status. Federal sources confirm to KING 5 that Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary. Cetin, who immigrated to the United States from Turkey as a child, is considered a permanent resident or green card holder. While a permanent resident can apply for U.S. citizenship after a certain period of time, sources tell KING his status...

    Ted Cruz on Tuesday floated the possibility of restarting his presidential campaign if he wins Nebraska’s GOP primary Tuesday. Cruz, who ended his White House run last week, said he does not expect that to happen, but he’s leaving the door open. "We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory," he said Tuesday on Glenn Beck's radio program. "If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly."

    I live in Missouri, the state Trump won by less than 2,000 (the last I heard). I had been saying all along that I’d be voting for Ted Cruz, mainly because he says he’s a Christian. But on the day of our election this week, I could not do it, I voted for Trump... knowing full well his foibles. Here’s the short story of my transformation: I am a Christian man in my sixties, have not always been the best I could be, either as a man or a Christian, but I do try, sometimes. Months and even years back...

    Incremental change simply will not do. The world is changing too quickly and dangerously for a hesitant successor or one that fails to recognize that the entirety of Obama’s foreign policy must be rejected from the outset.-snipCruz ..... isn’t in politics to make a deal. He is in politics to make a difference.Cruz opted out of a lucrative career in the private sector because he believed that it was more important for him to serve his country. Over his four years in the Senate, Cruz has worked tirelessly to block Obama’s domestic and foreign policy agenda. He has been Israel’s...

    Many like to claim that voter fraud is a myth. However, after watching this video, you’ll understand why people might be a little concerned about it happening. The Black Conservatives Fund released a video today showing a leading Louisiana Democrat encouraging people at a private Democrat party event to vote twice. According to the BCF press release, Opelousas Mayor Don Cravins Sr. spoke at a rally at the Charcoal Lounge in Opelousas on November 3, 2014 – the day before Louisiana’s primary election. His son, Don Cravins Jr., is the chief of staff for Louisiana’s embattled Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu....

    I did not have an NRA hat, so I used the Gun Guy hat that I was given at the Shot Show.   No one blinked or so much as suggested that it was inappropriate.   Of course, this was Arizona. If I-594 wins in Washington, we will see an assualt on our rights here by billionaires working hard to buy an election by misinforming low information voters. I have seen it happen before.   If people do not know much about an issue, they can easily be swayed by slick ads. The old media has been a powerful force in moving...

    On Tuesday, five Colorado counties voted to approve the 51st State Initiative, directing county officials to explore secession from the state, the Denver Post reported. Voters in Kit Carson, Washington, Phillips, Cheyenne, and Yuma counties approved the measure, while voters in Weld, Moffat, Elbert, Lincoln, Sedgwick and Logan counties said no. "Weld County voters said this is an option we shouldn't pursue and we won't pursue it," said Weld county Commissioner Sean Conway. "But we will continue to look at the problems of the urban and rural divide in this state." Fort Lupton Mayor Tommy Holton acknowledged Tuesday that secession...

    Critics of voter ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. For instance, Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year: “A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.” Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters...

That's not just bluster: although some Republicans grew skittish watching Obama outspend Romney by as much as 50% on the airwaves to this point, RNC/Romney/Rove PAC money has mostly been saved for an all-out advertising assault in the closing weeks of the campaign ($200M+). While also many GOPers fret that Romney should have established a lead over such a lame candidate/record...

    WASHINGTON – The White House says President Barack Obama regrets his vote as a senator in 2006 against raising the debt limit. A fight over raising the debt limit is looming, and the White House is trying to explain away the apparent contradiction between Obama's previous opposition, and his position now that it must be increased. Press Secretary Jay Carney said Monday that Obama believes his vote was a mistake. He said Obama now realizes that the debt ceiling is too important to be trifled with. Republicans are threatening to withhold their votes to raise the ceiling unless Obama agrees...

    The 19 Senators Who Voted To Censor The Internetfrom the free-speech-isn't-free dept This is hardly a surprise but, this morning (as previously announced), the lame duck Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to move forward with censoring the internet via the COICA bill -- despite a bunch of law professors explaining to them how this law is a clear violation of the First Amendment. What's really amazing is that many of the same Senators have been speaking out against internet censorship in other countries, yet they happily vote to approve it here because it's seen as a way to make many...

    Before I was a public servant I was a small-business owner, keeping the books in the Web-development firm my husband and I started. I crunched numbers, evaluated costs and always looked for solutions that combined good budgeting with good management. Every time we made a major business decision, we evaluated that decision on its own merit. That was the approach I brought to Congress a year and a half ago: weigh costs with results, and make decisions based on the facts, not politics. I know this has angered people on the left as well as the right. Frankly, I take...

    Last Saturday night – at about 11:15 pm Eastern Standard Time – hyperliberal House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal) rammed her healthcare reform bill through with the smallest of margins. Pelosi needed 218 to get the bill passed, and she got all of 220, opponents registering 215.  In short, three votes pushed the Pelosicare through to the point where the Senate can now consider it or some other version of it. Where did those 220 votes come from?  Too many came from the so-called “Blue Dog Coalition” in Congress, a group of 52 Democratic representatives that claim to hold in high...

    Theresa Marie Barslou said she voted for the first time in the November 2008 elections. Nearly a year later, her vote has come back to haunt her. Barslou, 29, of St. Paul, illegally voted as a felon on probation, states a Ramsey County criminal complaint charging her with felony voter fraud. Barslou was arrested Monday after she failed to appear last month at a court hearing. She was released the next day on $3,000 bail. Barslou is one of the 23 felons charged with voter fraud in Ramsey County since the 2008 elections, County Attorney Susan Gaertner said. During a...

    This website invites those who voted for Obama and now regret it to post their comments. There are about 1000 posts at the time of this writing and their goal is two million. Those who did not vote for Obama are invited to post comments made by friends or family who now regret voting for Obama. I encourage anyone interested to go to the site and post - but I hope that those of us who are infuriated by Obama will not use it to bash prior Obama voters. This opportunity for them to post Obama voter regrets can play...

    Scores of convicted felons voted illegally in the state's 2004 general election, and officials never noticed because of serious flaws in the system for tracking them, The Seattle Times has found. The Times, reviewing felony convictions as far back as 1997, identified 129 felons in King and Pierce counties who were recorded as having voted in the Nov. 2 election. Another 23 likely voted. Several methods were used to confirm the findings. Either the counties failed to flag or purge felons on the voter rolls as required by state law, or they allowed them to register without checking their status....
