  • Patients at this mental hospital may have doomed a city’s sales tax measure

    Fresno Bee ^ | Nov 15, 2017 | Rory Appleton
    A tightly contested ballot measure seeking to impose a 1-cent sales tax on Coalinga residents apparently failed by just 33 votes, and patients at Coalinga State Hospital are taking credit for helping to defeat it. A current patient, a former patient who now represents the patients as part of an informal political lobbying group, and Coalinga Mayor Nathan Vosburg have confirmed that patients shared their intentions to oppose the sales tax, which was needed to save 23 city jobs, unless the city could convince them otherwise. When that didn’t happen, the patients apparently doomed the measure, which failed 578 votes...
  • Diving into the Numbers with Essex County, NJ Clerk Chris Durkin

    Insider NJ ^ | November 7, 2017 | Edward Edwards
    Essex County Clerk Chris Durkin looked across the city of Newark on election Day and told InsiderNJ that he sees “brisk turnout” in the county with the largest raw rolls of Democratic voters among all counties. Durkin said he believes this gubernatorial election will likely reflect the largest numbers in recent gubernatorial election history. Reports out of Maplewood and Montclair reflect solid numbers. ” I see it bigger than all those elections,” Durkin said. “I think we could see the highest turnout for governor in the last 40 years in Essex, but it won’t show by percentage.” That’s because in...

  • Illegal Alien Voting=insight on Democrats’ imported electorate

    State Department investigation provides insight on Democrats’ imported electorate. President Donald Trump estimated that three to five million illegals had caused him to lose the popular vote, which Hillary Clinton carried by 2.8 million votes. Trump duly launched a commission on voter fraud headed by vice president Mike Pence and Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach. That probe had Democrats bellowing through their bullhorns. “There’s simply no evidence of widespread voter fraud in this country. Period.” That was California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 84, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who is seeking another term next year. As it happens,...
  • Still bruised from Clinton loss, left takes aim at Electoral College in court

    A liberal-led push to overhaul the Electoral College could be moving from the op-ed pages to the courtroom, as a Harvard professor who flirted with a dark-horse Democratic presidential bid last year vows litigation to change the system. Criticism of the Electoral College was resurgent in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss. Clinton recently said she wants the system "eliminated." The latest effort isn’t aimed at dismantling the structure entirely – but rather, the winner-take-all system used by 48 states in awarding electors, which ends up focusing presidential races on a handful of battlegrounds. “With a winner-take-all, most of...

    Hillary Clinton’s former campaign lawyer is meddling in Nevada politics. Worse, he’s saying that voting in a special election would be an “undue burden” on minorities. Imagine the outrage if a Republican argued that voting is a “burden” on minorities. The lawsuit shows just how desperate Democrats are to stop recall efforts against Sens. Joyce Woodhouse, D-Henderson, Nicole Cannizzaro, D-Las Vegas, and Patricia Farley, I-Las Vegas. Marc Elias, general counsel for Hillary for America, filed the complaint Monday in federal court.

    It is a privilege to live in a country where someone like myself, raised by parents with 10th grade educations, can live the American dream. I am a small businessman, a coach, a father, a husband -- not a career politician. I ran for office because I believe in the American dream -- the faith that education, initiative, and hard work can earn anyone a better life in this country -- is a dream worth defending. I was raised to believe that in America, the greatest country on Earth, each of us has a voice in our government. This is...

    A Democrat Texas judge blocked the Secretary of State (TxSOS) from turning over data to President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity from the public voter rolls. The TxSOS is required by state law to turn over the public information to anyone who requests it properly as long as it is not for commercial use. Judge Tim Sulak, a Democrat who serves on the 353rd District Court located in Travis County, filed a temporary restraining order that prevents TxSOS Rolando Pablos from turning over voter information to the commission established by President Donald Trump in June, according to...

    Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, is registered to vote in New York State as a woman, state records show. The New Jersey native first registered to vote in the Empire State in November 2009 as a female, records first discovered by the liberal-leaning American Bridge group. It wasn’t immediately clear what happened that Kushner was registered as a woman, and was an active voter as of this November. The 36-year-old real estate developer has been tasked with reforming the government and moderating a peace plan in the Middle East. “Kushner can't even fill out the most basic...

    Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started a national conversation by kneeling during the national anthem to highlight racial injustices in America, was widely criticized after he revealed he didn’t vote on Election Day. But as it turns out the 29-year-old, credited by some as the face of the Black Lives Matter movement, has never been registered to vote in any election, according to a report by The Sacramento Bee. Mr. Kaepernick, who turned 18 in 2005, never registered to vote in his home state of California or Nevada, where he attended the University of Nevada, Reno, from...

    With left wing terrorist group AntFA funded by Nazi George Soros, the beatings of people has gone unreported and excused by the corrupt media. On November 4th of this year, the terrorist group AntiFA is planning a “civil war” and an “overturn” of government. AntiFA terrorists will team up with the The Revolutionary Communist Party and other far left terrorist organizations to instigate what they call civil war in November. The Revolutionary Communist Party, Antifa, and god knows who else are planning massive rallies to “end the Fascist regime”. According to one website at revcom.us, people are living in terror....

    If you have no idea what happened at the second meeting of President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in New Hampshire on Sept. 12, I’m not surprised. Though a horde of reporters attended the meeting, almost all of the media stories that emerged from it simply repeated the progressive left’s mantra that the commission is a “sham.” Almost no one covered the substantive and very concerning testimony of 10 expert witnesses on the problems that exist in our voter registration and election system. The witnesses included academics, election lawyers, state election officials, data analysts, software experts, and computer...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | September 18, 2017 | Rajeev Syal and agencies
    Banning social media trolls from voting could help reduce the amount of abuse faced by politicians, the election watchdog has said. The Electoral Commission says legislation around elections should be reviewed and new offences could be introduced. In the commission’s submission to a committee on standards in public life inquiry into the intimidation of political candidates, officials say many offences under electoral law date back to the 1800s or earlier. They say some electoral offences can result in an offender being disqualified from voting or from registering to vote. Such deterrents could be considered to stop abusive people, the submission...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 16, 2017 | Larry Provost
    On Friday night, the City of College Park, Maryland reversed its city council decision that allowed non-citizens of the U.S., including illegal aliens, the right to vote. This was due to council conveniently forgetting that such massive changes to the College Park City Charter require the vote of a supermajority on council as opposed to a simple majority. Ironically, the law that mandated a supermajority to pass changes to the city charter was enacted just this summer while the proposal to allow illegals and other non-citizens to vote, and was passed 4-3, was voted on only a few months later...

College Park, which approved the policy Tuesday, became the 11th municipality in Maryland...

    Republicans worry about vote fraud. Democrats claim that Republicans are just imagining things. But in testimony Tuesday before the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, I will suggest a simple solution that could make both parties happy: Apply the background check system for gun purchases to voting. Democrats have long lauded background checks on gun purchases as simple, accurate and in complete harmony with the Second Amendment right to own guns. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has bragged that the checks “make our communities and neighborhoods safer without in any way abridging rights or threatening a legitimate part of...

    From our earliest colonial times, society expected freeholders, those self-sufficient men, to participate in government. At a minimum that meant voting for local, colonial/state, and federal officials. Only those with a will of their own, those independent men who did not rely on anyone else for their sustenance, were thought capable of self-government. The Framers were concerned with a voting franchise that in time would extend to the shiftless and angry masses. Those who work and pay taxes resent voting by those who don’t work, and don’t pay taxes. In recent decades is the added insult of the untaxed voting...

    Exclusive – Kobach: It Appears That Out-of-State Voters Changed the Outcome of the New Hampshire U.S. Senate Race(Full Title) For years, the mainstream media has ignored the problem of voter fraud and belittled those of us who are trying to do something about it. And when secretaries of state like me identify cases of fraud, we are told that the number of incidents of voter fraud is too insignificant to matter. Now, however, facts have come to light that indicate that a pivotal, close election was likely changed through voter fraud on November 8, 2016: New Hampshire’s U.S. Senate Seat,...

    President Trump refuses to back down from claims about illegal aliens voting in U.S. elections — and rightfully so. In a rare admission, Brenda Snipes, a key election official in the state of Florida, admitted both “noncitizens” and felons have voted in Broward County. Daily Signal reports: Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is defending her office against a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Rights Union, a conservative legal group that contends there are more voters registered on Broward’s rolls than there are eligible voters in the county. Those rolls are said to be inflated with not only noncitizens...
