    The Obama administration is accusing Russia of hacking US political organizations...the final days of the campaign are dominated by talk of whether the race is "rigged." ...cyber experts say it's virtually impossible for Moscow ...to influence the election outcome.... ...The key concern...is public perception... ...The American election system is decentralized by design...Even though many precincts use voting machines, none are connected to the Internet, nor are they connected to each other. ....in Illinois, where hackers successfully stole roughly 90,000 voters' information...no data was changed in the system itself... ....voters who don't show up as registered properly can cast a provisional...

    Democrats are delaying for one week an initial committee vote on Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the committee, said Democrats had requested that the committee's vote on Gorsuch be punted to next week. "I understand that the minority would like to hold [him] over," Grassley said during the Judiciary Committee's meeting on Monday. Under committee rules any one member can request that a nomination be held the first time it appears on the agenda. Democrats were widely expected to delay the committee's vote until next week. The delay means...

    If you were opposed to the Obamacare replacement bill, the American Healthcare Act (AHCA), it was probably because it was hardly the Obamacare replacement we were promised. Congressional Republicans had no problem holding countless votes to repeal all of or parts of Obamacare when Barack Obama was president, yet all of a sudden there’s a hold up, despite the promise there would be an Obamacare repeal bill on Trump’s desk his first week in office. Unfortunately, the AHCA turned out to be nothing more than Obamacare-lite. Daniel Horowitz summed up the problem in Conservative Review, that “the sum of the...

    Our politicians are set to vote today on the American Health Care Act, to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Pray that they will do the right thing for the American people. Obamacare is going to fail regardless, so a change has to be made. Many of our politicians are weak morally and spiritually, corrupted by greed and power. Join me in praying for them today as they take this crucial vote. America needs healing that can come from God alone—our hearts need to be healed.

  • McAuliffe Vetoes Bill to Share Data About Voters Registered in Multiple States

    Virginia governor has vetoed several bills intended to fight voter fraud Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) vetoed a bill that would require the state Department of Elections to turn over information to local registrars about individuals who are registered to vote in multiple states simultaneously. McAuliffe has vetoed a handful of bills in recent weeks intended to prevent voter fraud. The bill, HB 2343, was introduced by Republican delegate Robert B. Bell and would have required the Department of Elections "to provide to the general registrars a list of registered voters who have been found through list comparisons and data-matching...

    Trump’s falsehoods are eroding public trust, at home and abroad. If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him? Would the rest of the world? We’re not sure, which speaks to the damage that Mr. Trump is doing to his Presidency with his seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods. The latest example is Mr. Trump’s refusal to back off his Saturday morning tweet of three weeks ago that he had “found out that [Barack] Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A new state report says scores of 17-year-olds voted illegally in nearly 30 Wisconsin counties during last spring's presidential primary. The Wisconsin Elections Commission report examined referrals municipal clerks made to prosecutors following the 2016 spring primary and general elections. The referrals included at least 60 cases of 17-year-olds voting in the April primary in 29 counties. The report doesn't track whether charges were filed. The report notes messages were spreading on social media during the primary season that 17-year-olds were eligible to vote if they turned 18 by the November election. That's not the case...

    To win the election in Germany, the SPD & Greens want to move to change the law regarding voting rights. Essentially, they want to give the refugees a right to vote. They need not be an EU citizen nor do they need to pay taxes. The mere right to vote is you happen to be there at the time. Meanwhile, the SPD has now taken the lead in polls from Merkel. Martin Schulz, the German Social Democrats’ candidate for federal elections in September, is the very person who in the EU wants to federalize Europe and this scheme is intended...

President Trump did not disclose any immediate evidence, but assured the people that the issue should not be taken lightly. “We can be babies, but you take a look...

The committee scheduled a vote on Sessions’s nomination for Wednesday morning. A vote by the full Senate is expected later in the week. (My emphasis.)

    A bill has been introduced into the New Hampshire legislature. It is designed to suppress the exercise of the Second Amendment and voting. The bill to discourage Second Amendment practitioners from voting is HB350. It is unlikely to pass in Second Amendment friendly New Hampshire. It shows the Democrat mindset to suppress the votes of people they disagree with. The bill requires that people who are going to vote divest themselves of their Second Amendment rights while they are voting.  In New Hampshire, no license is required to carry a firearm openly; it is fairly simple to obtain a...
