  • Poll: Black Women Most Fearful Of Wrong Candidate Winning Presidency

    News One for Black America ^ | July 24, 2016 | Nigel Roberts
    Most Americans believe there’s a lot at stake in the 2016 presidential election—but none more than Black women. According to a new poll reported in the Washington Post, nearly three-quarters of African-American women are “strongly” afraid of the consequences of their candidate losing the election. The Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Black women, who are by far Hillary Clinton supporters, fear a Donald Trump presidency. White women (at 56 percent) and Black men (at 55 percent) are a distant second and third, among those who strongly fear their candidate losing. What explains the high level of anxiety for...

    When will we wake up to realize that it is America who is the Lady in Distress much more so than the wife of any politician? The America-wrecking ‘progressives’ are heading to their all glitz and glamor Democratic National Convention tomorrow, laughing hilariously every step of the way. The last time the DNC hit the global limelight they introduced a narcissist with zero to qualify him from faux Greek columns at Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver. It was back then when a jumped-up street fighting community organizer was passed off as The Messiah—and none of the groans...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Saturday he’s already begun restoring the voting rights of convicted felons one-by-one, after the state Supreme Court rescinded his executive action granting voting rights en masse to more than 200,000 people convicted of serious crimes. “Last night I instructed my staff to comply with the court’s order and individually restore the rights of the more than 13,000 Virginians who had successfully registered to vote following my April 22nd executive order,” Mr. McAuliffe said in an email to supporters. “Soon they will have their rights back and will be able to have a voice in their...

    The Supreme Court of Virginia on Friday struck down Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s executive order restoring voting rights to 206,000 felons, dealing a severe blow to what the governor has touted as one of his proudest achievements in office. In a 4-3 ruling, the court declared McAuliffe’s order unconstitutional, saying it amounts to a unilateral rewrite and suspension of the state’s policy of lifetime disenfranchisement for felons. The court ordered the Virginia Department of Elections to “cancel the registration of all felons who have been invalidly registered” under McAuliffe’s April 22 executive order and subsequent orders. As of this week, 11,662...

    The Supreme Court of Virginia has ruled against Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s order restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences, a decision that dealt a major blow to the Democratic governor and has implications for the November presidential race in the crucial swing state. In a 4-3 ruling issued Friday, the court ruled that McAuliffe overstepped his clemency powers under the state constitution by issuing a sweeping order in April restoring rights to all ex-offenders who are no longer incacerated or on probation or parole. The court agreed with state Republicans who challenge McAuliffe’s order, arguing...

    WASHINGTON — The Virginia Supreme Court has struck down executive orders issued by Gov. Terry McAuliffe that would have allowed more than 200,000 felons to register to vote and participate in the November presidential election. The decision, issued late Friday, requires registrars to strike the names of any felons who registered to vote under the umbrella of three executive orders McAuliffe signed this year. The order gives county and state officials a month to strike those names. Chief Justice Donald Lemons wrote the decision. Three justices issued dissenting opinions. In April, McAuliffe restored the civil rights of felons who had...

    Prepare to be mindblown. A black dude is going to tell you why the GOP’s winning strategy is to focus like a laser on the white vote. One key result of the increased polarization happening in America under President Obama is that Republicans have a chance to decisively capture the white vote in a historic fashion. In fact, the key to a Trump victory will be the white vote, not the Hispanic vote, the black vote, or any other vote. Why? For one, the Democratic Party has already lost the white vote, and lost it big. Mitt Romney won the...

    A federal judge ruled Thursday that a Michigan law banning straight-ticket voting would place a disproportionate burden on African Americans' right to vote, and granted a request for a preliminary injunction to block enforcement of the law. Mark Brewer, a lawyer in the case and former head of the Michigan Democratic Party, argued that the elimination of straight-party voting would likely have a larger impact on African-American voters, noting "extremely high" correlations between the size of the African-American voting population within a district, and the use of straight-party voting in that district. New straight-ticket voting law in Michigan prompts lawsuit...

    Texas’s voter ID law violates federal laws prohibiting electoral discrimination, an appeals court ruled Wednesday. The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the 2011 state law, widely viewed as the one of the nation’s strictest such requirements, ruling that it violates section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. "The record shows that drafters and proponents of SB 14 were aware of the likely disproportionate effect of the law on minorities, and that they nonetheless passed the bill without adopting a number of proposed ameliorative measures that might have lessened this impact," Judge Catharina Haynes wrote in the ruling.

    AUSTIN, Texas – A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that Texas' strict voter ID law violates the Voting Rights Act and ordered changes before the November election. ADVERTISEMENT The ruling from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals instructs a lower court to make changes that fix the "discriminatory effect" of the 2011 law, but to do so in a way that disrupts this year's election season as little as possible. President Barack Obama's administration took the unusual step of deploying the weight of the U.S. Justice Department into the case when it challenged the law, which requires Texas residents...

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman issued a preliminary injunction order on Tuesday in a case challenging the state's law requiring voters to have photo identification, granting a request from the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU's request called for an affidavit option for voters who face a "reasonable impediment" to obtain a valid photo ID.

    Sixteen years. That’s how much longer the average British voter aged 65 and older will live, according to one analysis, which means that’s how long they’ll have to live with the outcome of last week’s Brexit referendum. Since older voters are estimated to have turned out in huge numbers — and voted overwhelmingly to leave the European Union — Britain’s graying generation is partly responsible for the biggest drop in the pound in decades, for the uncertainty in lives of millions of EU citizens in Britain and British citizens in the EU, and for bringing to power a group of...

    There is evidence of large-scale fraud involved in last Thursday's democrat primary in California. The present voting system in America involves a voter walking into a room, pulling a lever on a machine, and thereafter having nothing resembling control over how the record of his vote is maintained nor any sort of confidence that his vote is being counted as he might wish. That is clearly untenable, hugely subject to abuse and fraud, and it is remarkable that the American people have ever tolerated it. If we do not have some sort of a rational and decent voting system in...

According to an investigative report by CBS2, Los Angeles's CBS affiliate, some dead people continue to vote years after meeting their maker. The investigation revealed that 265 dead voters across five counties in southern California voted in recent elections, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Some of the deceased cast ballots in multiple elections. Thirty-two of those deceased voters were found to have voted eight times since kicking the bucket. One woman who died...

And that’s a problem. For those determined to avoid evils, they’re missing something huge.

The message was about as subtle as a punch in the face. The students were listening to Press Secretary Josh Earnest drone on and on when the president suddenly burst onto the stage.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that the unprecedented move will also allow felons living in Virginia to sit on a jury, serve in elected office, or become a notary. The order will effectively restore the civil rights of both nonviolent and violent felons who have served their time in prison and completed parole.

    Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s (D) unexpected decision to give a blanket, automatic restoration of voting rights to ex-felons – the order covers those convicted of all crimes, non-violent to the most heinous – has upended the 2017 contests for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. The state’s pundits have been calling McAuliffe’s surprise decision — he never hinted at this while campaigning — a politically motivated effort to help longtime friend Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president. This is based on their belief that African Americans will benefit the most, and skin color determines voting choices today. This belittles...

    A year after President Obama launched his Task Force on New Americans the administration is injecting it with a $19 million infusion so it can achieve its key initiative of registering new voters that will likely support Democrats in the upcoming election. Officially, this is being described as enhancing pathways to naturalization by offering immigrants free citizenship instruction, English, U.S. history and civics courses. The cash is being distributed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration, and the obvious goal is to register more immigrant voters because they tend to be Democrat....

    Sexism is driving women away from the GOP front-runner Donald Trump and the Republican Party, potentially providing a windfall to Hillary Clinton in a general election. But to ride women's discontent into the Oval Office, of course, Clinton has to win the Democratic nomination. And while she has maintained a strong advantage with women voters overall, she's not doing well with all women. White millennial women favor Bernie Sanders. Perhaps that's because the best rationale for Clinton's candidacy hasn't been effectively communicated to millennial women. There is a powerful case to be made for electing a woman president, and it...

    The head of a conservative group whose videos prompted the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office to open a probe of possible voting law violations during the first-in-the-nation primary campaign has scheduled a news conference in Concord on Thursday. Project Veritas, headed by activist James O’Keefe, said that it has not received a response from the Attorney General’s Office to its offer to cooperate in the investigation. O’Keefe will meet with reporters at the Legislative Office Building. Stephen Gordon, a Project Veritas spokesman, confirmed that among the topics O’Keefe will discuss is the Attorney General’s request for unedited, raw versions of...

    With certain exceptions, people who pay no taxes, and people who receive cash or equivalents from the government, should not be allowed to vote Most people recognize the expression “skin in the game” and accept that it means those persons who have something of value at risk have purchased a specific privilege or right deemed worthy of the gamble. Those without “skin in the game”, non-players in effect, are not entitled to the same privilege or right. If you have ever played poker with your buddies you know you are not entitled to be dealt a hand and perhaps rake...

    It's not impossible that Donald Trump finishes in third place in Ohio. The latest Ohio polls show a barn-burner between John Kasich and Trump, but they also show a distinctive Ted Cruz surge in the past 10 days. Snapshot Six pollsters have surveyed Ohio Republicans in March. RealClearPolitics averages the last four, and derives an average that shows Kasich up 35.3 percent, two points ahead of Trump. Ted Cruz's average over those four polls is 20 percent. Rubio is in single digits in all four polls and will finish fourth in Ohio. One of four polls (PPP) shows Trump leading....

    Tomorrow is an important day in the United States. Millions of people across the nation will be voting in our primary elections to choose a nominee for the post of President of the United States. This next presidential election is especially crucial for our nation. Our country has become highly divided along many different lines. The way in which the next president leads and the values he or she possesses will play a big part in determining the future success or failure of this country. With the weight of this heavy responsibility in mind, the questions must be asked: Should...

    Madison -- A state Supreme Court justice on Tuesday urged Gov. Scott Walker to allow people to use veterans ID cards to vote after her uncle who fought at Iwo Jima was unable to cast a ballot in last week's primary election. "It makes no sense to me that this proud patriot with a veterans card displaying his photo would be turned away from the polls and denied the right to vote," Justice Ann Walsh Bradley wrote to the Republican governor. In her letter, Bradley said her uncle had fought at Iwo Jima, the bloody World War II battle that...
  • Why this election makes me hate the word ‘evangelical’

    It wasn’t even intentional on my part. I just noticed a few weeks ago that I had stopped describing myself to people as an “evangelical.” I had begun, subconsciously, to say that I am a “gospel Christian.” When I caught myself doing this, I wondered why and the answer wasn’t long in coming. The word “evangelical” has become almost meaningless this year, and in many ways the word itself is at the moment subverting the gospel of Jesus Christ. Part of the problem is that more secular people have for a long time misunderstood the meaning of “evangelical,” seeing us...

    Clinton Eugene Curtis, a computer programmer from Florida, testified before a congressional panel that there are computer programs that can be used to secretly fix elections. He explains how he created a prototype for Florida Congressman Tom Feeny that would flip the vote 51%-49% in favor of a specified candidate. This happened all the way back in 2001 but you might not have heard anything about this claim unless you searched for it. I've seen a Wired News report on this topic and a few local Florida newspaper stories but otherwise, no real media coverage has been provided. You'd think...

    "The Obama Administration's lackeys at Attorney General Loretta Lynch's Justice Department are doing everything in their power to allow their new illegal alien power base to vote." That was Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning's reaction to the Department of Justice's decision not to defend the Election Assistance Commission in the case League of Women Voters v. Newby. The Commission had provided that the federal voter registration form would include Alabama, Georgia and Kansas requirements to enforce their respective state proof-of-citizenship voter registration laws. The Justice Department, which is supposed to defend the Commission, actually consented to the filed...

    Went and early voted today. Had to wait in line to vote, first time. Had to wait for a voting both, first time, usually most are empty. Heard the poll watchers say that over 700 people voted today at my location, which is unheard of in our little municipality in one day. While I was there, out of about 30 people, 28 asked for Republican Ballots and 2 asked for Democrat Ballots. Could have been some cross-over voters, but I really don't think so.
