  • Dems, Left Wing Media Claim Russian Hacking an ‘Act of War’

    Breitbart ^ | July 18, 2018 | by Joshua Caplan
    President Donald Trump’s refusal to rehash allegations of Kremlin-backed interference in the 2016 presidential election during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday incensed Democrat lawmakers and left wing media pundits. Standing alongside Putin, President Trump steered clear of confrontation with the Russian, while questioning U.S. intelligence and last week’s federal indictments of 12 Russians for hacking into Democratic email accounts to purportedly hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” President Trump said following a...

    The San Francisco Bee ^ | 18 July 2018 | Don Sweeney
    San Francisco began registering non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants, to register to vote Monday in the November election for the city school board, reported The San Francisco Chronicle. The move follows passage of a 2016 ballot measure by San Francisco voters opening school elections to non-citizens who are over the age of 18, city residents and have children under age 19, reported the publication. “This is no-brainer legislation,” Hillary Ronen, a San Francisco supervisor, told the Chronicle. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?”

    FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to announce its endorsement of state Sen. Leah Vukmir in the 2018 Republican U.S. Senate Primary in Wisconsin. “Vukmir’s record demonstrates her strong support for our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “We can count on Leah Vukmir to strongly support our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in the U.S. Senate.” Vukmir, a lifelong Wisconsinite, has earned an “A+” rating from NRA-PVF. That grade is reserved for legislators who have an excellent voting record on issues critical to NRA members...

    Speaking of treason, is it true that President Obama ordered his Intel and law enforcement agencies to stand down while Russia was actually in the act of meddling into our elections? And seeing that Hillary brought it up during the campaign, then she knew about it too. What did the president know and when did he know it? Why did they take no action at the time?

    American Thinker ^ | 07/17/2018 | Tom Trinko
    Donald Trump did not say the Russians didn't meddle in the U.S. election.  Remember that when you read heated statements from leftist shills or people like Jeff Flake and John McCain.  The left is in full lie mode, and leftists will say anything while assuming that their audience will never actually hear the truth. Here's what really happened.  First Trump said: During today's meeting, I addressed directly with President Putin the issue of Russian interference in our elections. I felt this was a message best delivered in person.  I spent a great deal of time talking about it and President Putin may very...

    16 July 2018
    I just turned off the local news in northern California where they just spend 20 minutes ripping on Trump and the summit. Trump is treasonous, weakening our defense, selling out our allies, siding with the enemy, etc.. The story that followed was about registering illegals aliens to vote. Seems in CA (Crazy America) illegals are allowed to register and vote for certain offices in local elections (The one they were specifically talking about was the local school board.). They were hopeful that someday illegals would be free to vote in wider elections. How can anyone lament foreign influence in an...

    Donald Trump has successfully appointed more federal appeals court judges so far in his presidency than Barack Obama and George W. Bush combined had appointed at the same point in theirs, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Federal Judicial Center. And with his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Trump soon could install his second justice on the nation’s highest court, too. But while Trump has already left a considerable imprint on the nation’s higher federal courts, he trails Obama, Bush and other recent presidents in the number of lower-court judges he has...

    The result of the US election will affect the lives of millions around the world but those of us outside the 50 states have had no say in it - until now.

    Top Maryland officials have asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help ensure that the state’s election system is secure after learning that a Russian-backed firm is linked to the Maryland state Board of Elections. Gov. Larry Hogan (R), Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) and House Speaker Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel) sent a joint letter on Friday to Homeland Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen asking for technical assistance to evaluate the network utilized by the state board. Miller and Busch said late Friday during a hastily called news conference in Annapolis that the FBI briefed them...

    (PHILADELPHIA) — The U.S. homeland security secretary said on Saturday there are no signs that Russia is targeting this year’s midterm elections with the same “scale or scope” it targeted the 2016 presidential election. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke at a convention of state secretaries of state, an event that’s usually a low-key affair highlighting voter registration, balloting devices and election security issues that don’t get much public attention. But coming amid fresh allegations into Russia’s attempts to sway the 2016 election, the sessions on election security have a higher level of urgency and interest.

Or are they?If you spend a lot of your time following people like the writers here at Hot Air on social media, you’d certainly think so.

    BOSTON -- The Massachusetts Senate passed automatic voter registration on Thursday, moving the bill one step closer to Gov. Charlie Baker's desk. The bill already passed the House, but differences between the bills will still have to be reconciled before a final version reaches the governor. It passed the Senate unanimously, 38-0. "It should be the state's burden to register voters - not yours," said Senate President Harriette Chandler, D-Worcester, in a statement. Chandler said long work hours and confusion about the voter registration process are barriers for many citizens.Under the bill, H.4671, any adult Massachusetts citizen who completes a...

    The Illinois state election board said Friday that it is likely the state referred to in special counsel Robert Mueller’s latest indictment as having been hacked into by Russian intelligence officers, the Chicago Tribune reported. Illinois officials said Friday that they had requested confirmation from the Justice Department that it was the state mentioned in the indictment. The hack has been public knowledge for nearly two years, with the FBI issuing an alert about the cyber attack in August 2016, one month after it took place. “We are grateful that DOJ has identified who the perpetrators are,” state election board...

    A fiercely contested bill to make residency a condition of voting in New Hampshire was determined by the state Supreme Court to be constitutional Thursday, in a major ruling that clears its approval by Gov. Chris Sununu. In a 3-2 ruling, the court found that the bill, House Bill 1264, is not a burden on the right to vote, but rather a means to better organize state laws “in order to place voters and residents on equal footing as New Hampshire citizens.” The court’s decision, which came without warning, now sets up a high-stakes choice for Sununu. On Thursday afternoon,...

In the last 72 hours, the cacophony from the left and the media has been so outrageous in part because I think the Kavanaugh decision, along...
