    Ballot harvesting: “We’re offering this service, but only for people who are supporting the Democratic Party” The activity in the video below is called “ballot harvesting,” and it’s 100% legal in California, where this was filmed.The state sends ballots to every registered voter. When people engage in “ballot harvesting,” they go to voters’ houses, offer to “help” them fill in their ballot, and then offer to mail their ballot for them.At 0:43 in this video, the woman who is doing the “ballot harvesting” says:“We’re offering this service, but only for people who are supporting the Democratic Party”I don’t know if that...
  • Latest House results confirm 2018 wasn't a blue wave. It was a blue tsunami.

    The final votes are being counted from the 2018 election. They confirm that the Democrats crushed Republicans. Let's start in the seat count. Republican Rep. David Valadao of California's 21st District conceded on Thursday to Democrat T.J. Cox. Cox's victory combined with other election results means that Democrats have picked up a net gain of 40 seats. As has oft been repeated, this is the largest Democratic House gain since 1974. It's a larger gain than Democrats had in the wave elections of both 1982 and 2006. We can go back even further and see how unusual it is that...

    California looks like a lost cause for Republicans, given how Democrats clinched the midterm with a series of new laws.  Maybe no big deal, given that California has been a solid blue state for something like 20 years.  But are Americans aware of the potential for California vote-rigging to come to their states, making them so blue that no conservative will ever be able to win an election? A California political operative, Edward Ring, writing in American Greatness, lays out the coming spectacle: Three laws in particular combined to stack the deck against Republicans.  First came the Motor Voter law.  This meant that as soon...

    The North Carolina State Board of Elections has refused to certify a Republican's slim victory, given credible allegations of cheating. M aybe ballot security isn’t such a bad thing after all. Democrats, who the day before yesterday were insisting that voter fraud didn’t exist, now believe that it was used to steal a North Carolina congressional seat from them — and they may well be right. Republican Mark Harris has a 905-vote lead over Democrat Dan McCready in the state’s 9th Congressional District, a slender victory that the State Board of Elections has refused to certify given credible allegations of...

    Vote Fraud: Immediately following the midterm elections last month, several Republican candidates held comfortable leads in reliably red districts in the otherwise deep blue state of California. But within a few weeks, all of them had lost to their Democratic challenger. “Despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates in California saw their advantage shrink, and then disappear, as late-arriving Democratic votes were counted in the weeks following the election,” Fox News reported.

    GOP senator-elect holding onto governor post until Ron DeSantis takes over Florida Sen.-elect Rick Scott has opted to remain governor of the Sunshine State until Republican Ron DeSantis takes over, delaying his swearing-in for the Senate to Jan. 8. His fellow senators-elect will join the chamber on Jan. 3 at the start of the 116th Congress. “Gov. Scott will remain governor until January 8th, 2019,” John Tupps, a spokesman for Scott, told the Tampa Bay Times. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has agreed to hold the ceremony for Governor Scott's swearing-in as U.S. senator from Florida that afternoon.” Tupps...

    BEAVER FALLS, Pa. -- Mike Mikus speculates there are a fairly decent number of voters around here who have voted over the past 20 years in turn for Ron Klink, Melissa Hart, Jason Altmire, Mark Critz, Keith Rothfus and Conor Lamb. That is, they've swung their congressional vote from Democratic to Republican to Democratic, and then Democratic to Republican and now back to Democrat. "While it is not like an overwhelming majority, but I bet you about 15-20 percent of the voters that at one point have voted for each one of those winners of that seat," said Mikus,...
  • California’s Existential Threat: Ballot Harvesting Compounded By Illegals And Sanctuaries

    12/04/2018 7:32:13 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 22 replies
    Almost a year ago, I wrote an article under the headline, “California: A Growing Threat to the American Republic” which some people thought to be a bit of hyperbole, a bit over the top. It was neither hyperbole nor over the top. As is becoming all too clear on a regular basis, the warning is being borne out. The latest step in this growing stampede to undermine America came with the revelation that a “barely noticed” California law allows what is euphemistically called “ballot harvesting” — but in practice throws the door wide open for what is better known as...

    Broward County incident reports and photo evidence prove conclusively that Broward County election workers broke the law in numerous instances during the 2018 election. As Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes fights to hold onto her pension, the conduct of poll workers is coming under scrutiny, including a poll worker at Lauderhill mall, where Snipes’ office is based. The incident reports describe poll workers telling voters how to vote, touching their ballots, handing out Democratic flyers to voters, allowing people to bring Democrat advertisements inside and to use their phones, and encouraging people to fill out blank spaces on ballots at...

    Townhall.com ^ | December 3, 2018 | Scott Morefield
    In 2016, California took yet another significant step in its decades-long quest to become the world’s largest banana republic when then-Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1921, a then-barely-noticed revision to the state’s vote-by-mail procedures. The change was a small but significant one. California, in its infinite wisdom, decided to make the practice of “ballot harvesting” legal. Thus, instead of only relatives or those living in the same household being allowed to legally collect and turn in absentee ballots for voters - as was previously the law - any “third party” can do it, including activist groups, Democratic operatives, or street-corner panhandlers.As a...

    Very few people took notice when far left Governor Jerry Brown signed the changes in AB1921 into law two years ago. As a result, California lost 7 of its 14 Republican House seats this election cycle.

    The Washington examiner ^ | December 2,2018
    But does the coast-heavy Democratic leadership know anything about the districts outside of their super ZIP codes of the Beltway, California, New York, and Chicago? American voters, in particular independent voters who actually deliver these swings back and forth between parties, keep sending Washington a message with their votes. And Washington keeps misreading that message. It tells us in part that these rapid and large swings show a disconnected middle that feels a distrust with both parties and an allegiance to none. But the magnitude and frequency of these swings tell us something more important: Nothing seems to be working....

    Trump fought like "Hell" to keep the Senate and gain Senate seats, which he did. Knowing that Trump is a raging street fighter on all issues the "he" loves & pursues with super vigor, he put little pressure on Paul Ryan, who just stood by and let the House slip from GOP hands. Now...I am thinking, "Did Trump want to give the House to the "Nutcase" Democrats and let them weave their own patterns of self-destruction leading into the 2020 POTUS, campaign. I think so. We shall see as time rolls by. The Democrats have no leaders, they have no...

The memo, obtained by the Washington Post , lists a number of factors as contributing to McSally's loss, including ad spending, a brutal primary, name recognition and President Trump's popularity in Arizona.

    Let's revisit this post from election week, in which I highlighted a number of notable Republican victors in the media's much-discussed "year of the woman."  Since that piece went live, a number of the tentative outcomes have changed: Young Kim narrowly lost in California, Martha McSally narrowly lost in Arizona (though could end up in the Senate anyway), and despite winning comfortably, Cathy McMorris Rodgers stepped aside from leadership, with Liz Cheney taking her place as the top-ranking Republican woman in the House.  A number of female incumbents from competitive districts also lost by a hair, such Mimi Walters and...

    Voters in Mississippi on Tuesday will decide a U.S. Senate special election runoff marked by racial controversy and capped by a last-minute visit by President Donald Trump to shore up the beleaguered Republican incumbent. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, a white former state lawmaker who was appointed to the seat in April, is still favored over black Democrat Mike Espy in the reliably Republican state, which has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982. But she has been engulfed in a political storm since a video surfaced showing her praising a supporter at a Nov. 2 public event by...

    Don't be fooled, Mississippi. Democrat Mike Espy is no southern Democrat — he’s a radical liberal with a track record of supporting tax hikes and stifling economic growth with job-killing policies.Espy, who is running in the runoff election for the U.S. Senate against Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, has been able to keep a low profile during the chaos of the 2018 midterms, and now has an outside chance of becoming the next senator from Mississippi. That would be a disaster for the entire country, just as it was the last time we sent him to Congress.Espy was a registered lobbyist for...

    The signs were made public late last night, leaving no doubt this was a racist stunt by Mississippi Democrats to help drive voter turnout. MSM cable outlets have covered the ‘discovery of nooses’ in breathless fashion, but have conveniently failed to mention the signs left alongside. (Photos of the signs at link)
