    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | 15 September 2015 | Andrew R. Arthur
    A column in the Wall Street Journal this week underscored how important immigration enforcement is as an issue in the most critical races for the House of Representatives....Uncommitted voters reacted strongly against Democrats' calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE], and strongly in favor of GOP promises to defund "sanctuary" cities and states, which refuse to follow immigration law.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised that "this year's efforts to ensure the proper election outcome will be more successful than our 2016 intervention." "In 2016 our security safeguards didn't prevent all nonconforming content from reaching voters." Zuckerburg admitted. "Some anti-Clinton messages weren't detected and blocked. Likewise, some pro-Trump messages still managed to get through. In the intervening two years we have tightened our measures. I am highly confident that we will have the maximum possible positive influence in determining who wins." As an example of the "tightened measures" Zuckerberg pointed out that "we have banned the #WalkAway movement that seeks...

    When people go to vote in midterm elections this November, they may be thinking about any number of serious issues. In Texas, polling data suggest both immigration and border security are priorities for voters. One group of Houston’s most motivated activists are hoping voters care enough to show up to the polls in support of immigrant issues. Their future in this country could depend on it. Whether it’s knocking on doors, making calls or registering voters on campus, Houston youth are taking action. “Across the country, and here in Houston, we have not seen youth involvement at this level since...
  • More than 23,000 Californians were registered to vote incorrectly by state DMV ( illegal aliens ?)

    Tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference, officials said Wednesday. Officials insist the errors were limited to 23,000 of the 1.4 million voter registration files sent to elections offices between late April, when California’s new automated “motor voter” system went into effect, and early August. Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status. Jean Shiomoto, the state’s DMV director, and Amy Tong, director of the California Department of...

    The Times-Tribune ^ | September 2, 2018 | Kathleen Parker, The Washington Post
    As the late Sen. John McCain’s departing call to national unity reverberated across America last week, Donald Trump’s prediction of violence should Democrats prevail in November’s midterm elections seemed both discordant and, well, weird. The president issued his dire warning on Monday — two days after McCain’s death — to a gathering of evangelical pastors at the White House. Trump warned that if they didn’t rally their parishioners to turn out and vote Republican, Democrats “will overturn everything that we’ve done, and they’ll do it quickly and violently.” What sort of apocalyptic vision guides our commander in chief? What level...

    The always-on Trump campaign tested its new slogan Thursday night at another one of its loopy rallies. The mostly filled Ford Center in Evansville, Ind., seemed pleased. President Trump asked: “You ever hear this before: ‘Make America Great Again’?” They had. “You know our new slogan that we will be switching to because we are ahead of schedule to make America great again? It’s called ‘Keep America Great!’” The fair-skinned figures in candy-colored T-shirts and dark sports coats — the gung-ho crowd unfailingly known as Trump’s “base” — cheered again. Oh, the inanity. “Ahead of schedule?” Sure, bud. No wall...

    My variation on Selena Zito: Right now the value of Trump to the Trump voter is he is all that stands between them and the people who hate them every bit as much as they hate Trump. The Manhattan (NY County) District Attorney’s office is investigating the Trump Organization for possible criminal violations. The current NY Attorney General Barbara Underwood, holding the spot temporarily after her anti-Trump predecessor Eric Schneiderman resigned in disgrace, is going after the Trump Foundation. Democrat candidates for Attorney General are trying to outdo each other with promises that they will be the most aggressive in...

    Republican Troy Balderson clings to a narrow margin in last night’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional district, underscoring the impact voter fraud can have in key elections around the country. The separation of 1700 votes, or less than one percent, highlights the recent attempt by Democratic activists to fight efforts to prevent voter fraud from occurring. For the past four years, George Soros has spent millions of dollars trying to weaken Ohio’s election security by funding efforts to both block its implementation of Voter ID and prevent the state from removing inaccurate registrations. Soros pledged $5 million to fund...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele likened President Donald Trump’s rally last night in Wilkes-Barre, PA to a “circus” that is causing “swing voters” to move away from Republicans. Steele said, “Pennsylvania is a bellwether for a number of important races coming up this fall and the fact that the president is so narrowly playing to a base, that he feels good in that setting, he’s having fun, he’s riffing and cussing and doing all this and those folks are loving it. To Charlie’s point, the rest of the country, the independent voters,...
  • Democrat voter turn out miserable in Georgia Primary Runoff Election.

    Last night's Georgia Primary Runoff results is interesting to note the "turn out" voting patterns of both Republicans & Democrats. Most runoff elections feature low voter turn out, as only the die hard base voters come out to vote. Voter Turn out for Republicans was fairly active, but, Democrat voter turn out was at best rated dismal. Here are the final totals for the Governor (Republican) and two House Districts Democrats: Republican, Governor, Kemp, 406,638 votes, Cagle, 178,877 votes, Total: 585,515 votes. House District, 6, McBath, 14,285 votes, Abel, 12,303 votes. Total: 26,588 votes. House District, 7, Bourbeaux, 7,948 votes,...

    After each outrage, progressives believe supporters will drain away. On the contrary: he is giving them what they want Liberals and progressives are forever predicting Donald Trump’s political demise. After each purported outrage – Charlottesville, separating children from their immigrant parents, now Helsinki – they confidently contend that this latest event will finally force Trump’s supporters to abandon him. Yet not only does this not happen, Trump’s support has actually risen by 6% since late 2017. How do they keep getting it so wrong? To quote Ronald Reagan: “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s...

    CHICAGO — Chicago mayoral candidate Willie Wilson says he wasn't trying to buy anyone's vote when he handed out close to $200,000 to churchgoers. The millionaire businessman said Sunday's appearance at the New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church was nothing more than "one of the biggest property tax relief assistance" events of the year and the kind of thing he's done before. The Illinois State Board of Elections said Wilson didn't break any campaign finance laws because the money came from his non-profit foundation. Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, himself seeking reelection, joined Wilson at New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church at the...

    Just weeks after the UK’s i News published James Comey’s call for more gun control in America, the former FBI director is using Twitter to urge Americans to vote Democrat in November. On July 1, 2018, Breitbart News reported excepts from Comey’s i News interview, in which he claimed the NRA tells “lies” and called for limitations on the types of guns Americans can purchase, as well as limits magazine capacity for those guns. Comey said, “There’s no slippery slope in America when it comes to guns. It’s a concrete staircase, which is our constitution…. We just have to decide...

    Abdel showed up at his local Pennsylvania motor vehicle office to take his driver’s license test — and walked out having registered to vote, even though he is not a citizen. He said his command of English isn’t good and the computer system was unclear, but he somehow managed to sign up even though he knew he shouldn’t. Then there was Angelo, who figured he could vote because he joined the U.S. military, even though he wasn’t a citizen. He, too, signed up at the Pennsylvania motor vehicle bureau and registered as a Democrat. He then voted nearly every year...

    The latest Harvard-Harris poll has nothing but bad news for Democrats. The chances are you didn’t hear about this because you and I were not supposed to know what the results were. In spite non-stop attacks, Donald Trump’s approvals is up to 47% which is +2 in a month. Trump is proving that, whatever doesn’t kill him (and there doesn’t seem to be anything that can) has made him stronger. By 69/ 31 Americans see the economy as strong. By 68/26 Americans are saying their personal financial situation is strong and improving. Trump’s approval on creating jobs is much higher...

    Warnings of mass bloodshed and the most lethal infighting since the Civil War are now ramping up as web chatter points to observations by two important political observers concerning possible dark times ahead! "There will be mass bloodshed in this country-violence… if there is an illegitimate attempt to remove Donald Trump from office,” said political strategist Roger Stone to youtube reporter David Zubick. “The American people will not stand for it…they are fed up!” "I do not advocate violence…this is not a threat, (but) an analysis," Stone continued. But the Republican strategist also does not back down from his warnings...

    About 1.6 million young Turks will be voting for the first time in Sunday’s presidential and parliamentary elections. 18-year-old Ekrem, a recent high school graduate from the large, western city of Bursa, will be proudly casting his ballot along with 57 million other voters. “You feel like you’re doing something for the good of your country,” he said. But Ekrem, who didn’t want to risk giving his last name in a country where people are regularly prosecuted for ‘insulting’ public officials, also worries about the integrity of the vote. “In the last three to four years there have been a...

    Fifty-three percent of voters now see former President Bill Clinton as a “sexual predator,” according to a Rasmussen poll. Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters, “Which comes closer to your views – that former President Clinton was a sexual predator or that he was the victim of his political opponents?” Only 24 percent believe Clinton is a victim, while 24 percent remain undecided. Oddly enough, by a small margin, women are more inclined to give Clinton a break. A full 55 percent of men see the former president as a sexual predator, compared to 50 percent of women. Voters were also...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is allowing Ohio to clean up its voting rolls by targeting people who haven’t cast ballots in a while. The justices rejected, by a 5-4 vote Monday, arguments that the practice violates a federal law intended to increase the ranks of registered voters. A handful of other states also use voters’ inactivity to trigger a process that could lead to their removal from the voting rolls. Justice Samuel Alito said for the court that Ohio is complying with the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. He was joined by his four conservative colleagues. The four...
