  • Trust, don’t verify: How to commit voter fraud in Nevada

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | 2/21/2017 | Victor Joecks
    Since January 2017, low levels of radioactive Iodine-131 contamination have been detected over various European countries. Highest levels have been detected in Poland. The radioactive particles were first detected in Finland. Source is anyone's guess, but the initial area of detection and area of highest concentration point to Russia. I disagree with the blog's conclusion that this is likely to be a nuclear test since I-131 has a short half-life of 8 days. More likely, there's an ongoing issue with a Russian nuclear reactor. (Doesn't have to be a power station - could be a sub or other naval reactor.)

    Automatic voter registration bill dies in Illinois House after veto, but similar legislation could follow SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of a bill that would automatically register voters across Illinois has held up in the General Assembly, leaving unclear whether such a bill can secure enough votes to become law amid the current political environment. The Illinois State Senate easily topped the total needed to override the veto with a 38-18 vote in favor. The parties, however, were more divided in the Illinois House of Representatives. The bill received 67 yes votes. However, 71 votes were required to override...

    WND Exclusive Only 4 states can stop vote fraud 'No systematic oversight of the system' exists The raging debate about voter fraud has been hijacked by the left, says a leading expert on the issue, and the left is driving the narrative in a false direction using slick deception. The question is: What will President-elect Donald Trump do about it? When people think about “voter fraud,” they tend to think about the dead voting, people voting in multiple precincts or party machines paying homeless people to cast ballots. While those are all legitimate concerns, the mass fraud happens long before...

    While certain Republican presidential candidates have drawn the ire of reporters and evoked comparisons to the Holocaust for daring to discuss a national registry for Muslims, approximately one out of four Democrats support forcing Jews and Christians to register with the government. A recent YouGov poll asked 1,000 individuals if they would support a national registry requiring members of various groups to provide the government with their home addresses. The poll found 27 percent of self-identified Democrats either “strongly support” (18 percent) or “somewhat support“ (9 percent) a national registry for Jews. Democratic support for a national registry for Jews...

    Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported. The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats. These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance...

Governor Rick Scott had refused to allow more time. Thousands of Floridians fled areas threatened by the storm, and at least a half a dozen deaths in the state have been...

Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes. Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood.

    In 2012, President Obama won re-election by almost 5 million votes, but about 47 million eligible white voters without a college degree — including 24 million men — didn’t bother to vote. In 2016, these nonvoters are part of the demographic that is most strongly in favor of Donald Trump. If Trump rouses even a fraction of these notoriously disaffected Americans — like this grease-smudged, 61-year-old first-time voter in western Pennsylvania — he could surge to victory. There’s just one catch: If we’re on the cusp of a blue-collar Great Awakening, it’s not yet showing up in the registration data....

    A federal lawsuit alleging widespread confusion over California's presidential primary rules asks that voter registration be extended past Monday's deadline until the day of the state's primary election on June 7. "Mistakes are being made," said William Simpich, an Oakland civil rights attorney who filed the lawsuit. At issue is whether voters understand the rules for the presidential primary, which differ from those governing other elections in California. Unlike statewide primaries -- where voters now choose any candidate, no matter the political party -- the presidential contests are controlled by the parties themselves. Democrats have opened up their primary to...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday comforted an independent voter who can't cast a ballot in New York's Democratic primary. “Right now I’m doing everything I can to get my vote casted for him,” the man told ABC News upon encountering Sanders in New York City’s Times Square. I can sign a court order, an affidavit, whatever I need to do, and I’m going to do that. But it shouldn’t be this hard to vote.” Sanders then patted his supporter’s shoulder before agreeing that the Empire State’s primary rules are shutting out voters. “Today, three million people in the state...

    The most important state in this year’s presidential election is illegally removing thousands of voters from the rolls, a new voting rights lawsuit alleges. Ohio currently cancels the registration of people who don’t vote in three successive federal elections, or any of the intervening local elections — a procedure known as the Supplemental Process. Last year, around 40,000 people were removed from the rolls of Ohio’s largest county, Cuyahoga, a Democratic stronghold. Stuart Naifeh, a lawyer with Demos, said that suggests “tens or hundreds of thousands” of people were removed statewide last year alone. “We have spoken to purged voters...

Moreover, the authors suggested such licensing and registration would not violate the Second Amendment. According to the NYT op-ed, background checks are not sufficient, there are too many ways to go around them. “A more effective system would require everyone who owns or acquires a gun to register it.” And a second component to this “effective system” would be a licensing requirement for all persons who wish to...

Shockingly, the court ruled that nearly all of the most drastic gun control law in the history of the United States did not violate the Second Amendment and is therefore constitutional. That’s right, a law passed in the wake of Sandy Hook that included and paved the way for confiscation of millions of legally purchased firearms has been ruled “constitutional”...

SB 175  was signed on 1 June.  It makes gun laws uniform across the state of Nevada with a strong preemption statute.   The statute eliminates a maze of local government ordinances and regulations.  One of the chief of these is the long standing requirement for handgun registrations in Clark County.   The registration system was put into place as Las Vegas came under...

Fitzpatrick registered to vote in Illinois using the federal “Motor Voter” registration form.

The so-called Motor Voter legislation will use state Department of Motor Vehicles data to automatically register eligible voters whose information is contained in the DMV system, with a 21-day opt-out period for those who wish to be taken off the registry. Supporters say the legislation's goal is to keep young voters, students and working families who move often from losing their right to vote. Republican lawmakers, who unanimously...

Senator Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery) said his proposal would essentially change Pennsylvania’s voter registration system from an “opt-in” system to an “opt-out” system. Pennsylvanians currently may fill out voter registration forms when they apply for public benefits, services or licenses through the Department of Transportation and other state agencies. Under his proposed legislation, Hughes said the state agencies would automatically collect voting-related information with the application and electronically send it to...

    Minnesota is one of the few states in the nation with same-day voter registration. If you are a first-time voter or have not voted in the last four years, you’ll need to bring a photo ID as well as a current utility bill, bank statement or credit card statement. If you are already registered to vote and have voted at least once within the last four years, you don’t need to bring anything with you. A new state law goes into effect Tuesday as well. All transit, including buses and trains, are free.

    Guns Hidden from the Government and Confiscated in Wales The exemplar for restrictive firearms regulation in the United States has been England and Wales.   Some have argued that it was NAZI Germany, but though the 1968 Gun Control Act borrowed heavily from NAZI law, the country and laws that most have referred to has been England.  Wales shares the same laws and Supreme Court as England.   Interestingly, before the British passed their own restrictive firearms laws, the most restrictive law in the Anglosphere was the one passed in New York City, the infamous Sullivan law of 1911.   The first...

    For all those -like myself- who figured Obama was only flooding us with illegals so as to later register them as lifelong Democrats, SURPRISE: it's here now, as illegal immigrants present on nation's soil for dubious reasons have been already automatically added to voter registration lists in North Carolina through Obama's 'Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals' program. You know, same North Carolina where skeevy Team Obama conspired to sign-up 11,000+ illegally-registered voters last time round... and not coincidentally, where no voter ID law exists. Republicans voting in hyper-corrupt Illinois have seen machines switch their vote to the Democrat- it even happened...

    Changes are coming to Wisconsin's Do Not Call Registry effective Aug. 1, the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection said Friday. Users will no longer be required to register their phone numbers every two years, and their numbers will be placed on the national list aimed at preventing unwanted telemarketing calls and text messages. Consumers can sign up once and not have to worry about whether their registrations lapse. Also, new registrations will be handled by the Federal Trade Commission's national Do Not Call list, and those registrations will become effective the following day rather than weeks later,...
  • Wisconsin Elections Board urges voters to not use older registration forms

    Wisconsin Election Watch ^ | By Kyle Maichle
    MADISON – The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) is urging voters to not use old voter registration forms in a press statement issued by the state’s elections authority on Tuesday. The reason for the advisory is because Governor Scott Walker signed into law new legislation that would require the proof of residency of a voter to be disclosed on the official form used for voter registration. Kevin Kennedy, the Director of the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, said: “State law changed on April 4, and most voters who register must now provide proof of residence. The G.A.B. has revised the form...

    Gun registration was never popular in North Carolina.  The only county that required that guns be registered was Durham County, but that law was passed in 1935, and had been grandfathered in when state preemption of gun laws was codified in 1995.   Just because the law only applied to Durham County did not mean that it did not affect other people in the state or around the nation.  The law required guns to be registered.   If you were passing through Durham County, and possessed guns that were not registered in the County, you could have been charged with a...

    A crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland turned up 44,000 people registered in both states, a vote-integrity group reported Wednesday. And that’s just the beginning. “The Virginia Voters Alliance is investigating how to identify voters who are registered and vote in Virginia but live in the states that surround us,” Alliance President Reagan George told the State Board of Elections.

    The couple who brought a pre-filled out Obamacare voter registration card to the attention of the media, has not stepped forward because they fear government retribution. The unnamed La Mesa, California couple made national headlines over the weekend when they received a voter registration card from Cover California that had an “x” pre-marked in the box next to the Democratic Party. The wife told The Daily Caller Tuesday in a phone interview that she knows of at least two other people who have received similar letters — one in San Yisidro the other in Chula Vista Urbana — but she...
