    In traditional IT environments, infrastructure security auditing can be a periodic and manual process. In contrast, the AWS cloud provides governance capabilities that enable continuous monitoring of configuration changes to your IT resources. Security at AWS is the highest priority, which means that you benefit from data centers and network architecture that are built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. You can formalize and embed your security policy within the design of your infrastructure. With the ability to spin up temporary environments, security testing can now become part of your continuous delivery pipeline. Finally, you can leverage...
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Illegal Aliens Residing in My District Are ‘My Constituents’

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-CA) said during a Thursday House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing that illegal aliens residing in her district were her “constituents.” Ocasio-Cortez, who led with a quote from Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about his plan to add a “citizenship question” to the 2020 U.S. Census when she made the remarks about illegal aliens being her constituents. “Mr. Kobach later emailed to you on July 14 writing that the lack of the citizenship question ‘leads to the problem that aliens who do not actually reside in the United States...

    The left really wants to give kids the right to vote. This idea is so popular on the left that a majority of House Democrats voted in favor of lowering the voting age to 16. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., endorsed the idea as well.

    On Thursday I posted a clip of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) endorsing an effort from her colleague, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), to lower the voting age to 16. “I myself personally — I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voter — the voting age to 16,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government to be able to vote. … But my view is that I would welcome that....

    For years security professionals and election integrity activists have been pushing voting machine vendors to build more secure and verifiable election systems, so voters and candidates can be assured election outcomes haven’t been manipulated. Now they might finally get this thanks to a new $10 million contract the Defense Department’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched to design and build a secure voting system that it hopes will be impervious to hacking. The first-of-its-kind system will be designed by an Oregon-based firm called Galois, a longtime government contractor with experience in designing secure and verifiable systems. The system...

Last year EVERY district in conservative Orange County turned blue. Need ANYONE wonder how, now..? No word on exactly when O'Keefe will release the video but look for it soon.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voiced her support on Thursday for lowering the federal voting age to 16, telling reporters during a press conference that doing so would be a boon to voter engagement in the U.S. Pelosi said Thursday that lowering the voting age would drive interest in politics among younger Americans who are learning about the subject in high school. The Speaker said that changing the voting age to 16 would help drive a higher level of voter awareness and turnout. "I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16," Pelosi said.

    On this past Friday, the Democrats finally found a way to demonstrate their all out contempt for the sacred process of American elections. In doing so they closed a circle on a public strategy. In doing so they telegraphed their future intent. In doing so Americans face a crossroads. It was a simple amendment that Republicans wished to add to the Democrats first major attempt at legislation. H.R. 1 attempts to bring about voting reforms that Democrats feel are important. Claiming prejudice, mistreatment, and a need to “open up” elections to a broader swath of voters, Democrats passed a measure...

    The United States Constitution needs to be amended so that state legislatures that have members who can be elected by illegal aliens, or are themselves illegal aliens, are prohibited from taking part in the constitutional amendment process and the Electoral College process.
  • All but 6 Democrats oppose resolution against illegal aliens voting

    In the Democrats’ rush to pass HR1, a serious snag emerged for Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her party’s leadership. Republicans were able to force a vote on adding language to the supposed voting rights bill condemning the idea of illegal aliens voting in any elections. It simply read, “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”Sounds fairly basic, right? It’s already against the law for illegal aliens to vote in federal elections, though a few liberal municipalities have moved to allow them to cast ballots on the...

    House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice. The vote marks a stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry illegal immigrant voting. “We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure. The 228-197 vote came as part of a broader...

    Critics are slamming U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley’s push to lower the voting age from 18 years old to 16, calling it a “terrible idea.” “It’s simply wrong,” MassGOP chairman Jim Lyons told the Herald. “Almost all 16-year-olds I know I don’t believe should have the privilege or the authority to vote. They simply haven’t matured to the level that they can make those types of decisions.” Lyons added that Democrats have prioritized raising various age requirements “in just about everything,” including for smoking, using tanning beds and the age for juvenile crimes.
  • Chicago Dilutes Right to Vote by Designating Illegal Alien ID Card as a Registration Document

    Chicago's new identification card, created with illegal aliens in mind, is being deemed acceptable by the State of Illinois for voter registration purposes. First, let me say without a shadow of a doubt that there is no instant "trigger" when an alien registers to vote, and the implication that an alien will therefore instantly be deported is risible. Even more risible is the assertion that checking a box attesting to citizenship will meaningfully deter illegal voting by aliens. That defies human nature. Since when has any fraudster been held back by the notion that he or she must lie on...
  • California DMV to be audited after lawmakers become suspicious of voter fraud

    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- California's DMV has been rife with scandal. On Wednesday morning, lawmakers agreed to yet another audit, this time focusing on the program that registers drivers to vote. "The problems with motor voter have risen to such a degree that there is a bipartisan effort in this," said Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno). The department has admitted mishandling voter registration information for 23,000 drivers and double-registering as many as 77,000 others. Assemblyman Patterson claims over 500 Californians may not have been able to vote last November because the DMV did not send their information to the Secretary of...

    Wake County Superior Court Judge G. Bryan Collins invalidated a state constitutional amendment requiring voters to show photo IDs at the polls. He also tossed an amendment placing a cap on the state’s income tax. Though the amendments were both passed handily by voters, Collins ruled that because the legislature is so gerrymandered it had no authority to place them on the ballot. Reactions to the ruling were split. North Carolina GOP Chairman Robin Hayes called the ruling “an absurd usurpation of the voters’ right to govern themselves.” Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman of the NAACP hailed the ruling as...

    SANTA FE — Two proposals moving through the House are aimed at making it easier for New Mexicans to register to vote. Both proposals, sponsored by Democratic lawmakers, passed the House Judiciary Committee on Monday and are heading next to the House floor. One measure, House Bill 84, would automatically register people to vote when they get their driver’s license or ID at the Motor Vehicle Division, unless they opt out or are ineligible. The other proposal, House Bill 86, would allow people to register to vote on Election Day or at early voting sites. Under the current system, the...

    A recent audit discovered that nearly 100,000 non-citizens are registered to vote in the State of Texas. In an attempt to forestall the State from purging the voter rolls of these ineligible voters, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) has filed suit. “The voters to be purged may not be citizens of the United States, but they are citizens somewhere in the world and residents of Texas,” LULAC attorney Luis Vera observed. “They have a human right to participate in selecting those who govern them. Disenfranchising them, as the Texas authorities intend to do, diminishes them as human...

    Democrats do not want any serious border restrictions because they know that their super liberal agenda is not at all acceptable to 2/3 of this country's citizens, so they need to import millions of ignorant people to become a larger base of ignorant voters to retain their power.

    Good thing Pennsylvania isn't a crucial state in national elections. A top Pennsylvania lawmaker called on the state Wednesday to immediately expunge the names of 11,198 noncitizens whom the state confirmed are registered to vote, despite not being eligible. State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, a Republican and former chairman of a House government oversight panel, said the administration of Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, belatedly acknowledged the large number of noncitizens in communications over the past two months. “I believe that we need to take action and have those people removed immediately from the rolls,” Mr. Metcalfe told The Washington Times....

    Ranking Member Doug Collins: I’m confident every lawmaker in this room agrees that our democracy depends on protecting voting rights and election integrity. Congress has the authority to prohibit discriminatory treatment in voting based on race or ethnicity as part of its duty to ensure the sanctity of every vote. Unfortunately, this bill actively undermines these goals. The bill before us today federalizes elections in ways that have nothing to do with outlawing discrimination. Instead, it federalizes elections in ways that actually disenfranchise state voters. H.R. 1 would deprive state voters of their own right to determine their state’s voting...
