    In college I researched voter turnout. My conclusion was that nations that had suffered the recent-historical threat of invasion, led by Switzerland, had the highest voter turnout. The US, which hasn't been invaded since 1812, has some of the lowest turnout. Noteworthy among the dirty snowflakes is their lack of participation. Millennials frequently complain that politics is irrelevant, so why bother voting. In the case of 'undocumented' voters, it should be easy to document how leftist-progressives entice them to vote illegally; meanwhile, the incoming triple-majority should do the most it can to legislate that only American Citizens ever vote, with...
  • Man gunned down outside bar after he joked about voting for Trump

    A first date went terribly wrong when a man was gunned down outside a bar after he jokingly said he voted for President-elect Donald Trump. Shaunita Walker told WSB-TV that she and Mitchell Mormon Jr. were outside Church Bar on Edgewood Avenue in Atlanta at about 3 a.m. Saturday when her new date got into an argument with another man who pulled a gun. Walker, 25, said the alleged shooter uttered something disrespectful to her as she went back into the bar, angering Mormon, 32, who confronted the man and began arguing with him. Walker said Mormon jokingly told the...

    Colin Kaepernick is standing behind his decision not to vote in the presidential election or even register to take part in the democratic process, saying he can effect change in other ways besides through a ballot. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has knelt through the national anthem all season to protest police brutality and the treatment of minorities, drawing criticism and acclaim alike. He took more heat for not voting last week. “I thought a lot of different things about the process and what I could and couldn’t do,” he said Tuesday. “Once again, the system of oppression is what...

    Donald Trump managed to flip some traditionally blue counties in other states but lost in Orange County, a historically conservative stronghold that’s turning bluer. Hillary Clinton snagged 401,577 votes countywide (49 percent), compared to Trump’s 361,121 (44 percent), according to results posted Friday morning. Third-party candidates Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and Gloria Estela combined got 43,293 votes (4 percent).

    Donald Trump has beaten Hillary Clinton in the race to be president of the United States. Much of the narrative ahead of the election had been that Mr Trump was supported by angry, white men. To get an insight into which groups actually voted for him, you can look at the exit poll conducted across the country by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of ABC News, The Associated Press, CBS News, CNN, Fox News and NBC News.

The pro-abortion women, part of the group that promotes abortion on a worldwide scale, wrote anti-trump messages on their bodies. The protest took place in the gym of the elementary school. But the joke was on them – Trump hadn’t even arrived to the polling venue yet to see their message when they were detained by police officials. Here’s more: The women, in their mid-20s, arrived to the P.S. 59 polling site just after 8:15 a.m., ripped off their...

    America’s limited experiment with voter-ID laws may come to an end after this election. Democrats keep claiming that voter fraud is a myth. But voter fraud has mattered in plenty of American elections. Take Lyndon Johnson’s election to the U.S. Senate in 1948, when LBJ won by manufacturing enough fake votes to turn a 20,000-vote deficit into an 87-vote win. Others point to voter fraud in Illinois and Texas during the 1960 presidential election; indeed, we may never know whether Kennedy actually “won.” Chicago was infamous for counting the votes of dead people. In 1982, U.S. Attorney Daniel Webb found...

I thought the number of people voting might be sparse, so I asked Esther, an election worker for 13 years, how the turnout was. She said: "This is amazing.

    Republican Donald Trump has a good shot at defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton in today’s election but late polls still give Clinton an advantage. Whatever happens in the presidential race, Republicans seemed poised to retain control of both houses of Congress – albeit with reduced majorities. Whether Republican lawmakers would suddenly develop a spine and resist a President Hillary Clinton after President Obama steamrolled them for years is a separate question.

    The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is boasting that its voter registration campaign “One Million Voters” across mosques and schools has doubled the number of registered Muslim voters to over a million. The media is cheering this development even though USCMO has a history that makes the KKK look downright sunny. USCMO was in the news last year for its statement denying the Muslim genocide of Armenians and arguing that any recognition of the massacre must also recognize “Muslim suffering.” USCMO's Secretary General Oussama Jammal had engaged in 9/11 Trutherism at a rally backing a Hamas supporter.

Meanwhile, hackers have already tried to breach election systems in more than 20 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

    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.

These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance...

Worse still, there may be reason to suspect he was fed the question in advance and gave a premeditated, Machiavellian answer. While talking to actress and rapper Gina Rodriguez on the Latin-oriented YouTube channel MiTu, Obama was asked, “Many of the millennials, dreamers, undocumented, um, citizens — and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country — are fearful of voting.

    A federal appeals court in Cincinnati overturned a court order Sunday that would have prevented Republican Donald Trump’s supporters from monitoring election activities outside polling places. The decision by the three-judge 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel overturned Friday’s decision by U.S. District Judge James Gwin, whose order would have applied to both Democrats and Republicans equally. But unlike Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton has not exhorted her supporters to stand outside polling places to monitor voting. The decision was in response to a suit filed by Democrats last Sunday, arguing the presence of Trump supporters outside polling places could...

Namely, if you view this presidential election as voting for the lesser of two evils, don’t commit the third evil by not voting.

The unsigned order from the nation’s highest court overturns an appeals court decision from a day earlier that blocked the new law and drew celebration from Democrats. Groups immediately launched renewed efforts to help voters deliver their ballots to the polls, then stopped after the high-court ruling.

    State police on Thursday widened their investigation of possible voter registration fraud in Pennsylvania, raiding the Philadelphia office of a grassroots organization that works with Democrats, while election officials in the suburbs questioned the validity of thousands of last-minute applications submitted by the company. The state probe involves voter registrations gathered by Washington, D.C.-based FieldWorks LLC, a 15-year-old company that has worked with a wide range of Democratic and progressive groups around the country. State police arrived at FieldWorks’ Philadelphia office with a search warrant Thursday night, less than a week after raiding the company’s location in suburban Delaware County,...

    Our ancestors made America great, and so shall we, again In the Soviet Union, a.k.a. the Evil Empire, over 90 percent of eligible citizens voted in national elections, of which over 90 percent voted for the members of their ruling clique. All the candidates were government-approved, and national propaganda (all Soviet main-stream media) were 100 percent in favor of those whom the ruling clique wanted to get elected. Although formally a democracy (“People’s Democracy” was sometimes used to describe it), the above insidious arrangement was the main instrument in the hands of the Soviet ruling clique with which to decide...

    Early voting numbers are coming in from the last few weeks, and from the first weekend of early in person voting. And the numbers could prove to be problematic for Democrats, who found success with early voting in the last presidential election. Statehouse correspondent Karen Kasler reports.

    African-Americans are failing to vote at the robust levels they did four years ago in several states that could help decide the presidential election, creating a vexing problem for Hillary Clinton as she clings to a deteriorating lead over Donald J. Trump with Election Day just a week away. As tens of millions of Americans cast ballots in what will be the largest-ever mobilization of early voters in a presidential election, the numbers have started to point toward a slump that many Democrats feared might materialize without the nation’s first black president on the ticket. The reasons for the decline...

    Nationally, “African-American enthusiasm has dipped compared with that in 2012,” according to the New York Times. That’s “a surprising and disquieting development for Democrats who believed Trump’s racial appeals and flirtations with the birther movement would generate more urgency,” the Times reported. For example, in the two Virginia districts with the largest percentage of African American adults, early voting has dropped by more than 50 percent, the Times said. In Ohio, the decline of early voting in heavily Democratic African-American districts is causing worry for Democrats — and a shift of resources into the low-turnout areas. Hillary Clinton, according to...

    What do you say when someone running for office asks for your vote? Let's say someone knocks at your door and they smile and tell you that they are running for State Delegate or State Representative or State Senate, or maybe for some County office like County Council or Sheriff. Maybe they are running for Congress or US Senate. Let's say you know little about them except that they are polite and make a nice appearance. They ask for your support and maybe for some money to help their campaign. Do you just say yes to be nice? Or do...
