  • Billionaire George Soros fuels Democrats’ push to lower voting age to 17

    washingtontimes ^ | Valerie Richardson
    Stung by recent election defeats, Democrats are leading the charge to lower the voting age to 17, with a little help from liberal billionaire George Soros. In California, Democratic legislators introduced this week a landmark bill, ACA 10, that would give the Golden State the nation’s youngest statewide voting age by lowering the threshold from 18 to 17 in the name of reversing the slide in voter turnout. “Young people are our future,” said Democratic Assembly member Evan Low, the measure’s sponsor. “Lowering the voting age will help give them a voice in the democratic process and instill a lifelong...
  • Assemblyman Evan Low Proposes Constitutional Amendment to Drop State's Voting Age to 17

    NBC Bay Area ^ | Mar 7, 2017 | Michelle Roberts
    Assemblyman Evan Low on Tuesday introduced a constitutional amendment that aims to lower California's voting age to 17. Now, state lawmakers are grappling with questions about the maturity of 17 year olds and how much it would cost to make such a change. Seventeen year olds can drive and preregister to vote in California. But if Low's amendment passes, they will also have a say in who is elected president. In the November election, only 7 percent of Santa Clara County's young people took to the polls. Low believes that if teens are able to start voting at 17, they’ll...

    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.)

    President Trump stirred bipartisan controversy on Wednesday by pledging to launch a “major investigation” into his baseless claim that widespread voter fraud cost him the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election. Trump’s assertion that as many as 3 million illegal ballots were cast has been disputed by news organizations, state attorneys general and academics who study voter fraud claims. Even Trump’s own legal team conceded last year that there was no evidence of widespread fraud in the election, as part of a court challenge against a recount effort in three Midwestern states.  Trump reiterated the charge in a Monday...

The long list includes various meetings with business, union and congressional leaders and the signing of executive orders intended to boost the U.S. economy and job market. But for some White House correspondents, the only thing that mattered on Tuesday was not what Trump has accomplished so far, but his offhand remark at a private reception for lawmakers Monday night, where Trump apparently repeated his belief that between three million and five million votes had been...

    Donald Trump’s claim that illegal voting may have cost him a popular-vote majority has touched off outrage. Widespread voter fraud, the media consensus suggests, isn’t possible. But there is a real chance that significant numbers of noncitizens and others are indeed voting illegally, perhaps enough to make up the margin in some elections. There’s no way of knowing for sure. The voter-registration process in almost all states runs on the honor system. The Obama administration has done everything it can to keep the status quo in place. The Obama Justice Department has refused to file a single lawsuit to enforce...

    LONDON — The British government announced plans on Tuesday to crack down on voter fraud by requiring voters to show official identification at polling stations, tightening rules on absentee ballots and preventing political activists from handling absentee ballots. While some critics argued that fraud was not widespread and that the plans would hit hardest the opposition Labour Party and the poor, the government minister in charge, Chris Skidmore, said that the new measures would “protect anyone who is at risk of being bullied, undermined or tricked out of their vote, and their democratic right.” The government had commissioned a report...

    Politics is a game, in some ways akin to football. A win depends on how many points are on the official scoreboard, not on how many yards have been covered. For a stable society to exist or a game to be successful, certain rules must be followed. They may be simple or complex, few or many, handed down orally or through a complex code, but they underlie a structured order. Adherence to that structure is essential even in politics, which is an ongoing process with no eternal answers. It is natural in politics that conclusions and procedures once generally accepted...

    One out of every 266 voters participating in Michigan's Nov. 8, 2016, general election did not have a photo ID, according to the state elections bureau. Of the 4,874,619 votes cast in the state, 18,339 individuals signed the affidavit of identity required of individuals who want to vote without a picture ID. Nearly one-third of those affidavits — 5,834 — were signed in the city of Detroit. Other cities with a high number of affidavits included Grand Rapids (535) and Southfield (463). In the cities of Rochester and Livonia, all voters showed a photo ID.

    Donald Trump recently tweeted that he would have won the popular vote if not for the millions of people who voted illegally. He went on to discuss the media’s refusal to cover illegal voting problems in California, New Hampshire, and Virginia. Meanwhile, liberals, led by Jill Stein, are demanding costly recounts in Trump-won states without any indication any voter fraud occurred. Unfortunately for the President-elect, the burden of proof lies with the accuser, not the defendant. While Trump’s claim likely has some merit to it, nationwide evidence of his assertion isn’t likely to surface anytime soon. As they did throughout...

Lyons introduced the bill just two days earlier to revise the current system for individuals voting without a photo ID.

Currently, a person who wishes to vote in Michigan without presenting photo identification must sign an affidavit of identity. One out of every 266 Michigan voters signed an affidavit this year.

    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...

    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...

    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. He was...

    Skip to 3:50 below for the key bit. Good lord. He’s about as far off-script from the usual Democratic message as you can get. After all the Democrats' concern about voter suppression, this is an interesting response from Obama to Al Sharpton in a new interview pic.twitter.com/9qrJ3riT6a— Chris Megerian (@ChrisMegerian) November 4, 2016 I assume the left will walk this back after the election by claiming that O deliberately underplayed the impact of voter-ID laws and fewer early-voting hours in order to boost morale among minority voters. If he had complained loudly here about “voter suppression,” it might have backfired...

    Security researchers have found vulnerabilities with the machines some Americans will use to vote. The news comes in a hotly contested election cycle where hacked emails are being deployed furiously in an attempt to sway public opinion. Meanwhile, hackers have already tried to breach election systems in more than 20 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security. According to experts, the people doing the hacking may not have to try hard. "The machines themselves physically have been shown to be very vulnerable," Cris Thomas, a strategist for Tenable Network Security, a Maryland based cybersecurity company, told CNBC's "On the...

    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...

    Today, "a lady I know" who is a social worker, told me about how she was told by several of the older folks she has as clients, were all bused to their voting site, and were assisted by those who did the busing, and all of them were assisted to vote for Hillary, exclusively. Many of those elderly are over the age of 70 and don't follow politics, and frankly, don't care one way or the other, but, their votes went exclusively to Hillary.
