    It is extremely clear to all of us who have followed the politics of the the Democrats, the GOP and the Clintons since John F. Kennedy that Washington D.C. has become the biggest center of corruption of all time in the history of our country. Obama was proven to be the worst President in history in the fact that he has purposefully chosen to do everything he can to transform America into a 3rd World country because of his hatred for America. We are currently faced with electing Hillary Clinton, who has as her qualifications of 30 years of lying,...

Previous reports said that all 19 false registration applications were in the names of the deceased.

    Early voting has begun in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, perhaps some other states. Several people have reported long lines in north Georgia, West Georgia, South Georgia in certain places in Tennessee. Today I heard from a friend about long lines in eastern North Carolina, where early voting began, I believe, yesterday. Generally speaking, I take long lines as a good sign, particularly when they occur in small-towns and rural areas. Let me know what you are seeing.

    Despite news percolating throughout the country about non-citizens registering to vote under loose Motor-Voter practices, the courts are refusing to allow states to verify citizenship as a condition for registering to vote. Yesterday, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court’s injunction against a Kansas law requiring those registering with federal Motor-Voter forms to show proof of citizenship. The original injunction forced the state to register 20,000 individuals who failed to show proof of citizenship. Now, that number could rise to 50,000.

Then we see this email the next day. John Podesta: I think Teddy’s idea scratches the itch, is pretty safe and uncomplicated. On the picture ID, the one thing I have thought of in that space is that if you show up on Election Day with a drivers license with a picture, attest that you are a citizen, you have a right to vote in Federal elections.~SNIP~

    MADISON, Wis. – Independents and so-called “anti-establishment” voters have had much to say about the presidential race so far. But could illegal immigrants and other non-citizens ultimately decide the contest? One elections expert said that is a distinct possibility. “My biggest fear in the upcoming election is people who are not U.S. citizens registering and voting and potentially making a difference … if we have a close election,” said Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies. The former Federal Election Commission member pointed to cases across the country,...

That’s 40 to 50 million men and women who probably say they love America but still failed to exercise the simplest and most basic form of citizenship. Pundits and pollsters are predicting similar electoral apathy on Nov. 8 – perhaps in even greater numbers. Personally, I’ve never seen such apathy among Christians for the two major party presidential candidates. Christians who stay on the sidelines usually...
