    -excerpt- November 8 will be a paid holiday for workers at General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Square, Hearst Publishing, Patagonia, mattress company Casper and digital media company Thrillist. While there is no federal law requiring workers get time off to vote, state laws vary on what’s required. For instance, some offer paid leave for a set amount of time to vote. Others offer unpaid leave and some require workers give adequate notice before taking leave to vote.

  • So the Hillary Indictment Will Have to Come From Us

    It was quite the spectacle, and quite the damning litany of charges against Hillary Clinton. And after sharing them for several minutes, formerly respected FBI Director James Comey told us that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” I am familiar with several reasonable prosecutors who would have been glad to do it if the lifting is a little too heavy for Comey, who started his remarks as a straight-arrow law-and-order figure and a quarter-hour later earned his card in the Hillary Clinton protection racket. To be clear, since the FBI Director seems a little fuzzy: Hillary Clinton knowingly...
  • Hopes rise for Trump rivals as South Carolina votes

    The Hill ^ | February 20, 2016 | Niall Stanage
    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Late-deciding voters may be moving away from Donald Trump and toward rivals Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio as South Carolina Republicans prepare to cast their ballots in Saturday's primary. Two new polls show a sharp drop in the business mogul's once-comfortable lead, while his rivals have endorsements and traditional organizing power on their side. It may not be enough. Almost all observers expect Trump to prevail in the end. But a narrow margin of victory would raise questions about his long-term prospects in the race. And a stronger-than-expected showing from either Cruz or Rubio could give their...
  • Blue State Leftists Destroying Red States?

    Occasionally an analysis so turns your head that you have to do your own investigation to determine whether that analysis makes any sense. When it comes from the New York Times (the daily bible of the Left), one needs to take an extra hard look. Before the mid-term election two Times reporters asserted that blue-state voters are moving to red states and making them purple. Robert Gebeloff and David Leonhardt of the Times took a look at the people flooding out of blue states and moving to red states. They assert that this population flow has been going on for...
  • Two Hidden Factors in the 2014 Campaign

    11/11/2014 9:15:33 AM PST · by Kaslin · 33 replies ^ | November 11, 2014 | Michael Barone
    Looking back on the 2014 election cycle, I see two largely unnoticed turning points that worked against Democrats and in Republicans' favor. The first came in response to the October 2013 government shutdown. This was blamed, as shutdowns usually are, on Republicans, partly because of their skepticism about big government, and partly because media professionals tend to fault the GOP in any partisan fight. The shutdown occurred because about 40 Republican House members refused to support a continuing resolution funding the government without a proviso defunding Obamacare. Texas freshman Sen. Ted Cruz had been barnstorming the country arguing that this...

    It’s Election Day on Tuesday. (Not a Calvinist holiday.

    At a July fundraising event in Chicago, Mrs. Michelle Obama remarked, "So, yeah, there's too much money in politics. There's (sic) special interests that have too much influence." Sen. John McCain has been complaining for years that "there is too much money washing around political campaigns today." According to a 2012 Reuters poll, "Seventy-five percent of Americans feel there is too much money in politics." Let's think about money in politics, but first a few facts. During the 2012 presidential campaign, Barack Obama raised a little over $1 billion, while Mitt Romney raised a little under $1 billion. Congressional candidates...

    In his new book—The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic—nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin, who served as chief of staff in the Reagan Justice Department, argues that the Constitution should be amended to put tax day and election day back to back. “I would move tax day to the day before election day,” Levin said in an interview on’s Online With Terry Jeffrey. “I think this is very important, because if you’ll notice, election day and tax day are about as far apart as they can get, like seven months apart,” said Levin. “So we’re voting on the...

    Wake Up America ^ | May 20, 2013
    The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. Here is what happened: Following World War II in 1946, violence erupted when returning American soldiers discovered their Tennessee county had been taken over by political corruption. Their plan to take it back involved bullets—lots of bullets—and dynamite. Why Athens in McMinn County, Tennessee became a battleground was due to Paul Cantrell,...

For conservative states like Texas and Tennessee, our work is complete in our own states. We won the US Senate race and many state legislative and down-ballot county races.

So what do activists do now? How do we utilize our passion and experience to impact votes in the November General Election? Answer:...

    Watching the election year primaries unfold, it is clear disgust surrounds the individual in the White House and the top two challengers for the office of President of the United States. The man in the White House characterized his last three years with deception, poor stewardship, and immoral decision making. One of his challengers has a past characterized by philandering and broken trust while the other has demonstrated immoral choices involving support of homosexuality, abortion, and stem cell research. This speaks completely to their moral fiber; it does not address their failures of ideology or misdirected spirituality. Presently and historically,...

    Barack Obama is to give an interview to Ryan Seacrest on election day, confirming his irrelevance as president at this stage in his first term. While Obama could have at least tried to help his party’s chances by appearing on a more credible network that reaches a much bigger audience than little old Ryan Seacrest (Don’t confuse him with Kelly Clarkson!), say, like Fox News, he turns tail and chooses to go on a laughable host’s trivial radio show. Despite the fact that the pro-Obama forces in the liberal mainstream media are spinning this ridiculous and cowardly move by the...

Within hours, an amateur video showing Heath, slapping a black nightstick and exchanging words with the videographer, had aired on TV and ricocheted across the nation.

"It's going to be pretty quiet there,'' said David Tom, San Mateo County's elections manager. There are two main reasons: More and more people every year are casting their ballots by mail. And at the same time, an antiquated California law requires counties to staff polling places as if that weren't the case. The state has decreed that each polling precinct should have no more than 1,000 voters. And even if a...

The latest numbers show a six point leap for the conservative candidate, while the Democratic party's Owens has remained the same. ”Hoffman continues to demonstrate momentum, picking up six points since Scozzafava pulled out,” said Siena pollster Steven Greenberg. “It appears, however, that the majority of Scozzafava’s supporters have gone to neither Hoffman nor Owens, but rather into the undecided column, which has doubled since Scozzafava ended her candidacy.”

More recently, in 2004, exit poll data that began circulating early in the afternoon led to short-lived Democratic elation and deep Republican anxiety. By evening, some of President George W. Bush’s key strategists were frantic, emailing reporters at polling organizations to better understand the gap between what they were finding on...
