  • Yes, Florida Elections Have Had Their Moments, Like 200,000 Non-Citizens Possibly Voting In 2012

    Townhall ^ | Posted: Nov 12 | Matt Vespa
    The ballot counting in Florida elections is a shambles. The gubernatorial race is a shambles. The agricultural commissioner’s race is a shambles. And the Senate race is a shambles. We’re all heading for recounts in these races—and the two counties that keep chipping away at GOP vote totals, Broward and Palm Beach, are the most liberal in the state. They’ve violated state law by not posting regular updates on ballots left outstanding. A judge recently ruled that the counties violated public records laws—and the whole ballot counting process has been done in secret. So, yes, it’s right that Gov. Rick...
  • Professor sues university for being ‘punished’ after calling female transgender student ‘sir’

    A professor at a small public university in Ohio is suing officials at the school after he received a written rebuke for not addressing a transgender student using the preferred gender pronouns. Nicholas Meriwether, a philosophy professor at Shawnee State University, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court this month against university officials. The lawsuit asserts that university officials violated his constitutional rights by compelling him to speak in a way that contradicts his religious beliefs, according to NBC News. Meriwether is an evangelical Christian, and as such, felt that speaking to a transgender student in their preferred pronoun would...

    RUSH: All right. It’s Politico which is saying that Kyrsten Sinema has beaten Martha McSally in Arizona, and the vote margin is 31,000, interestingly, which is the same margin that DeSantis is up over Gillum here, 31,000. That’s after, you know, some late arriving ballots and so forth. You know the governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, won his race by 300,000 votes. They’re both Republican. So how do you explain Ducey getting 300,000 more votes or 270 thousand more votes than McSally or somewhere in there? Maybe 310,000, whatever it is. How do you explain this? And the vote totals...
  • How the Navy’s D-Day amphibious attack on Utah beach achieved 'tactical surprise'

    Warrior Maven via Fox News ^ | 11/12/2018 | Kris Osborn
    Battling rough seas with five-foot waves, thrashing wind gusts and heavy enemy fire, U.S. Navy amphibious landing craft attacking Utah Beach on D-Day actually managed to achieve total tactical surprise. Although amphibious forces eventually took heavy German artillery fire as they got closer, the amphibious landing force was well protected by Allied air superiority and cloudy weather. “As our forces approached the French coast without a murmur from the enemy or from their own radio, the realization that once again almost complete tactical surprise had been achieved slowly dawned,” said Sir Bertram Home Ramsay, Naval Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Naval...

    An Israeli air strike destroyed Hamas's Al-Aqsa TV building in the Gaza Strip on Monday after a series of warning shots, AFP journalists reported, drawing threats of a harsh response from Palestinian militants. The strike came as violence again flared between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza. Hamas confirmed that the building in Gaza City was destroyed, while Islamic Jihad vowed to respond to Israel's action.
  • Reward Fund to pay for vote fraud information (vanity)

    I am throwing this out for comments. The basic idea is to open an escrow account funded by donations for the sole purpose of paying out sizable amounts for valid information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons committing vote fraud. Somebody has to do something. I have zero faith in any elected official with the exception of Trump and he can't do it all. So, what's your thoughts?

    The mayor of Livermore California explains Trump's popularity and success. This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump's popularity Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.. He ran on the democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come. He wrote the following from an article, originally written by Evan Sayet and his opinion he expressed as a columnists for Townhall.com were his own and did not represent the views of Townhall.com, were mistakenly attributed to Marshall Kamena by me. Trump's...

    RUSH: Eighty-five subpoenas. House Democrats say they have 85 subpoenas ready to be launched from a “subpoena cannon.” The Democrats are gonna be subpoenaing Trump’s tax records. They’re going to be requesting all information on Russia that Bob Mueller does not have. I actually saw this little Pencil Neck Schiff guy say they want to make sure that Mueller has everything he needs, as though Mueller may have been frozen out learning some Russian stuff and the Democrats are gonna make sure that he finds it and gets it. Eighty-five different subpoenas. Now, we’ll see. I’m asking myself, did all...

    It takes a lot to render Dana Loesch speechless, something I’m sure Michael Bloomberg  could agree to.However, even the National Rifle Association’s most visible spokeswoman was at a loss for words when she found out that the alleged Parkland shooter had been registered to vote while behind bars in Broward County.Nikolas Cruz, the 20-year-old man who is accused of killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School back in February, is currently awaiting trial in the Broward County Jail.Yet, back in July, he was registered to vote. Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was one of Cruz’s alleged victims, was...

Scott, have you known how fires…? You probably know. It’s probably the kind of thing that you’ve known since you were five, right? I have never known how fires were named. Like, we’ve got the Woolsey Fire here, and we’ve got the Camp fire up in Northern California. I’ve never bothered to look into how they’re named. It’s really rather simple, and there’s nothing mysterious about it. They name...

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 12, 2018 03:00 PM | Eddie Scarry
    Some in the news media are dismissing President Trump's claim of fraud in Florida's election, even after two judges have found impropriety with the process in specific parts of the state. CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza on Monday called claims of corruption and “fraud” by Trump and Republicans “baseless” and said that they “tell us about how [Trump] will approach his own re-election race in 2020.” His colleague John Avlon on Monday morning called on Florida to “count the votes. Don’t demonize the process.” Trump returned Sunday from a weekend trip to Europe, but his mind was at least in...

    Sickening. No wonder the Democrats are yelping for the “caravan” invasion. It would insure their despotic future. Now is the time to get to the bottom of the decades-long escalation of Democrat vote fraud. This is the opportunity to drill down on the Democrats’ war on free and fair elections. Trump cannot do this alone. And it’s not just about Florida, Arizona and Missouri. The Democrats have been doing this for years. They wail about voter suppression, but their voter fraud crimes are the ultimate suppression of the American voter. https://gellerreport.com/2018/11/200k-fla- voters-noncitizens.html/

    Broward Circuit Judge Jack Tuter said Monday that he would not issue an injunction in response to a request from Gov. Rick Scott (R) that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and county sheriffs impound ballots and voting machines in the county when they’re not in use, according to CBS Miami. The announcement comes a day after Scott filed a pair of emergency motions in Palm Beach and Broward County courts, as legal action intensifies over the too-close-to-call Senate race between the governor and Sen. Bill Nelson (D). The race is now undergoing a machine recount that must be completed...

    First, let me say that I will continue to vote for our constitution as long as I am alive. I will never give up on America. However, Trump is the last ember, rather make that the last spark of constitutional hope that we are ever going to witness in power. Once Trump leaves office the United States as ruled by the constitution will have ended. There will never, I repeat never be another constitutional President as we understand the constitution. The war to remove Trump hasn't even begun, but it is coming with an overwhelming attack through "legal" means though...

    People need to cut back on burgers because they're contributing to climate change, the United Nations said this week. The United Nations Environment Program said research shows that Americans eat about three burgers a week, and if one of those was swapped for "a plant-based alternative burger for one year, it would be like taking the greenhouse gases from 12 million cars off the road for a year." The World Economic Forum blames the beef and dairy industries for churning out more greenhouse gas emissions than oil companies or some countries like Germany. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association argued that...

    A barrage of about 200 rockets were launched from Gaza towards Israel on Monday, the Israeli army said, hours after a botched Israeli operation in Gaza left a Hamas commander and an Israeli soldier dead. Eleven people in Israel were injured by the rocket fire, prompting retaliatory ground and airstrikes by the Israeli military that left at least three Palestinians in Gaza dead, the Palestinian health ministry said. The Israeli army said that about 60 rockets were intercepted by the Israel Defense Force's (IDF) Iron Dome aerial defense system, with many other rockets falling on open ground. Sirens continued to...

    There are too many polar bears in parts of Nunavut and climate change hasn't yet affected any of them, says a draft management plan from the territorial government that contradicts much of conventional scientific thinking. The proposed plan -- which is to go to public hearings in Iqaluit on Tuesday -- says that growing bear numbers are increasingly jeopardizing public safety and it's time Inuit knowledge drove management policy. "Inuit believe there are now so many bears that public safety has become a major concern," says the document, the result of four years of study and public consultation. "Public safety...

    Outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has some advice for Democrats now that they’ve gained back control of the House: divide and conquer. “The Democrats should triangulate," the Chicago mayor said during a panel discussion on ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos." "They should find everything that Mitch McConnell and the president don’t agree on and go right at it, because that will force a division in the Republican Party and bring in whatever moderate wings of the Republicans that are left and bring them over to the Democratic.” Emanuel, speaking of the Senate GOP leader, said: “Wherever Mitch McConnell...
