  • Republican Opportunity With Young Blacks

    11/14/2018 2:45:40 PM PST · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | November 14, 2018 | Star Parker
    Buried in the mounds of data fleshing out what happened in the midterm elections is an interesting take on blacks. Nationwide data on black voting in this election cycle does not point to much change. Various polls over recent months seemed to indicate that blacks were starting to warm up to Republicans and President Donald Trump. But blacks went 90 percent for Democrats and 8 percent for Republicans. Pretty much business as usual. However, digging down, we find something interesting. Blacks ages 18 to 29 voted 82 percent for Democrats and 14 percent for Republicans. That seems to point to...

    Sickening. No wonder the Democrats are yelping for the “caravan” invasion. It would insure their despotic future. Now is the time to get to the bottom of the decades-long escalation of Democrat vote fraud. This is the opportunity to drill down on the Democrats’ war on free and fair elections. Trump cannot do this alone. And it’s not just about Florida, Arizona and Missouri. The Democrats have been doing this for years. They wail about voter suppression, but their voter fraud crimes are the ultimate suppression of the American voter. voters-noncitizens.html/

    On election day a poll monitor in a Los Angeles precinct blocked army veteran John Reader from voting because of “the symbol of hatred” on his shirt. The symbol: a US flag. “I thought displaying the flag was a general expression of patriotism, you know for our country,” Reader said. “How’s that a hate symbol?” The poll monitor who would only give his first name (Bill) asserted that “someone so ignorant as to not know that the American flag is a symbol imperialism, oppression, and hatred shouldn’t be voting in our elections. Generous person that I am, though, I offered...

I wanted to document as many as I was able. I felt it was essential to expose voter fraud and election manipulation as close to real-time as possible. ...

    The state of Florida, and therefore the nation, is forced to wait for the verdict of three statewide races thanks to the negligence of Palm Beach and Broward County election officials Susan Bucher and Brenda Snipes. Each county submitted their unofficial election results on Saturday after days of confusion, misplaced ballots, and questionable counting methods but the statewide process will continue due to the close margin of error in Florida's Governor, Senate, and Florida Agriculture Commissioner races.Now, Florida's Secretary of State has officially ordered a statewide recount. BREAKING: Florida secretary of state orders recounts in U.S. Senate, governor races.— The...

    The Florida Senate election has become a shambles. Once again we have issues counting the votes—and two of the most liberal counties in the state. What’s taking them so long? The counties ravaged by Hurricane Michael are all done. These two counties are not keeping regular updates on the outstanding ballots. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor for Broward, the largest Democratic county in the state, is like a deer in the headlights concerning how many are actually left to go. With both election boards not being transparent and no way to verify f their vote count dumps, which are in the...

    With voter fraud and integrity issues in Florida, Arizona and across the nation – the entire US election system requires review and repairs. Yesterday we found out that voter ballots in Florida’s Democrat led Broward County were being transferred between vehicles and loaded on a rental van during the election. Every day new votes are added to Democrat candidates in close races nation wide. Florida, Arizona and Montana all had tight senate races with Republicans holding the lead on election night and then just like that, days later, Democrats miraculously pull out victories. Dan Bongino commented that in Florida there...
  • Democrats Aren't Losing Faith in Our Constitutional System. They Just Don't Like It

    In liberals' imaginations, there are only four ways to lose elections -- and none has to do with their leftist turn, their hysterics or their one-dimensional identity politics. Democrats say they lose because of gerrymandering, voter suppression (sometimes known as asking for ID), Russian mind-control rays deployed by social media, and our antiquated and unfair Constitution. That last excuse is becoming increasingly popular among pundits who continue to invent new crises to freak out about. Take Vox's Ezra Klein, a longtime champion of direct democracy: "I don't think people are ready for the crisis that will follow if Democrats win...

    Project Veritas dropped an undercover video earlier Tuesday showing election officials admitting “tons” of non-citizens are voting in Texas. O’Keefe’s undercover video caught the attention of Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. “This will be investigated,” Abbott said of the non-citizens being encouraged to vote by election officials. In the video, a Project Veritas undercover journalist asked a Texas election official if her “DREAMer” boyfriend can vote as long as he is registered to vote and has a driver’s license. “Yeah okay” the election official responded. “If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” the election official said...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he would be "dumbfounded" if Democrats failed to retake the majority in the House, and expressed certainty that President Trump would question the legitimacy of the results if Republicans falter in Tuesday's midterm elections. "I guarantee he’ll challenge the legitimacy of the vote," Biden said with a laugh when asked about the possibility after casting his ballot in Delaware. "You know, he’s still looking for that million crowd that was there for his inauguration, for God’s sake," Biden continued. "He’s an interesting guy." Biden spoke with reporters after he voted on Tuesday.

    A staggering 36 million voters cast their ballots ahead of Election Day this year, setting the stage for much-higher-than-usual turnout for a midterm — and, potentially, big surprises on Tuesday night. Republican enthusiasm for President Donald Trump and Democrats’ itch to repudiate him at the ballot box have driven people to the polls far faster than in 2014, when 27.2 million people voted early, according to Michael McDonald, a University of Florida professor who tracks voter turnout.

    Voters headed to the polls Tuesday to determine the balance of power in Washington and across the country in a midterm election that has been set up by both parties as a referendum on President Trump’s first two years in office. As voters braved long lines and bad weather to cast their ballots, state and local candidates, party representatives and activists canvassed battleground states, looking to woo any remaining undecided voters. Historical trends and recent polls suggest the Republicans could lose the House, creating an obstacle to Mr. Trump’s agenda two years into his administration. Democrats need to flip 23...

    I’m not one to insist people vote, part of being in a free society is the freedom to not participate and I’ve been a non-participator in many of society’s rituals. I only attended a pep rally in high school (because I was performing in it) and no sporting events because school spirit always annoyed me; I didn’t attend my college graduation because I looked at it as a waste of time, but I’ve always voted because I wanted to know I registered my opinions the one time every two years they really matter. A lot of times I was motivated...

    Voters heading to the polls tomorrow must ask themselves this: Do you want your husbands, brothers or sons being wrongfully accused of sexual harassment, or worse, subjected to criminal assault charges based on bogus allegations? If so, vote Democrat. Liberal lawmakers like U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her political kin demonstrated loud and clear during the Kangaroo Kavanaugh hearings they don’t give a hoot about due process, the presumption of innocence or even vetting sexual assault allegations. According to the radical left — waging a bona fide war on men — our brothers, sons and husbands are automatically guilty for...

    To my Democrat friends. No argument from me will follow: Considering the growth in the economy, the tax breaks, job growth, low unemployment numbers immigration reform etc., why would you vote for a Democrat on the ticket? Why vote Democrat when you know they'll block everything the President is doing to help the country economically? Why would you vote for a Democrat when you see their record of economic failure and inner city blight/crime around the country, particularly in cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Oakland etc? It doesn't make sense to vote for a Democrat so I'd like to know why...

    The late Milton Berle used to say as a part of his comedy routine: "Since perestroika and glasnost, the Russians have changed their electoral system. A man went in to vote and was handed a sealed ballot. He started to tear it open. An election official said, 'What are you doing, Igor?" 'I'm opening the ballot. I want to see who I voted for,' said the man. The election official replied, 'Don't be foolish, you're not supposed to know. We vote secret ballot in this country.'" Berle's humor reminds us of a privilege which we often take for granted –...
