  • U.S. Supreme Court will hear Texas redistricting case

    Texas' disputed U.S. and state House maps will come under an election-year review by the U.S. Supreme Court in a nationally-followed case that alleges racial discrimination by the state Legislature. The justices agreed Friday to review a lower-court ruling that took issue with a pair of U.S. House districts and several state House districts. The Republican-drawn maps – hotly disputed by Democrats – have muddled through the courts for three election cycles amid challenges that several of the districts were drawn in a way that diluted voting power for Latino and African American voters. "They didn't just cheat to get...
  • Supreme Court appears sympathetic to Ohio voter roll purge effort

    The Supreme Court appeared sympathetic Wednesday to states that seek to prune their voting rolls by targeting people who haven't voted in a while. In a case from Ohio, opponents of the practice called it a violation of a federal law that was intended to increase the ranks of registered voters. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said minorities and homeless people appear to be disproportionately kicked off the rolls. But the court's conservatives and possibly also Justice Stephen Breyer indicated that they would uphold the state's effort.

    Democrats at the Left’s premier think tank have finally admitted in a leaked memo that illegal immigration is key to their party’s future electoral success. Republicans may not be angels but they have never wielded compassion as a cudgel the way Democrats do. But this memo ought to end Democrats’ phony compassion shtick for all time. Power is the only thing that matters to them. They don’t care about America or Americans. They care only about winning. Honest observers have known this for years. What did Democrats actually do this time to help solidify their image as the party of...

    President Trump announced late Wednesday that he had disbanded his controversial "election integrity" commission and blamed a refusal by more than a dozen states to provide what he called "basic information." "Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its initial findings and determine next courses of action," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. The commission, led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, had...

    ABC, NBC, and CBS refuse to cover him. Left-leaning sources report on him with no integrity. PR tactics get employed at the hearing. And the DOJ spokesperson lashes out. The testimony of Christopher Coates before the United States Civil Rights Commission exposed a pervasive hostility to equal enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, as well as racialist policies at the Justice Department. He also exposed the intellectual bankruptcy of the defenders of the dismissal of the New Black Panther case. The testimony was covered by CNN and the Los Angeles Times, and was on the front page, above the fold,...
  • In Final-Hour Order, Court Rules That Alabama Can Destroy Digital Voting Records After All

    Alabama is allowed to destroy digital voting records created at the polls during today's U.S. Senate election after all. At 1:36 p.m. Monday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge issued an order directing Alabama election officials to preserve all digital ballot images created at polling places across the state today. But at 4:32 p.m. Monday, attorneys for Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill and Ed Packard, the state administrator of elections, filed an "emergency motion to stay" that order, which the state Supreme Court granted minutes after Merrill and Packard's motion was filed. By granting the stay, the court effectively...
  • When Illegal Immigrants Vote, It Cancels Out the Vote of a Genuine Law-Abiding American Citizen

    12/06/2017 7:39:29 AM PST · by pinochet · 25 replies
    The Republican Party has been falsely accused of disenfranchising blacks by requiring voter ID in order to vote. Voter ID limits the ability of illegal immigrants to vote. When an illegal immigrant votes, the vote of an American citizen who is eligible to vote is cancelled out. We have a problem in which illegal immigrants are voting illegally, which weakens the political power of black Americans. An experienced lawyer told me that people who come to America illegally, are not supposed to get green cards and American citizenship, unless they go back to their home countries. They should then go...

    Legislative contests could determine control of the House of Delegates in a state having a serious problem with illegal votes Disputed races for the Virginia House of Delegates — which could determine control of the chamber — highlight the potential for fraud and even innocuous bureaucratic glitches to impact elections. It has been three weeks since Virginians voted for governor and representatives in the House of Delegates, and the tenuous Republican hold is still not confirmed. Democrats swamped Republicans in the election but — as things currently stand — will hold only 49 seats to the GOP’s 51 when the...

    WASHINGTON – Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, said that all felons should have the right to vote. “I’m for allowing people who are incarcerated to have the right to vote. Why not? They’re citizens. No matter what they’ve done, and I’m not defending any of their conduct, but all of it wasn’t bad – but all I’m saying is expanding the vote and eliminating structural barriers is critical,” Conyers said at this month’s annual Legislative & Policy Conference organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) on Capitol Hill. “It’s not an exaggeration...

    A tightly contested ballot measure seeking to impose a 1-cent sales tax on Coalinga residents apparently failed by just 33 votes, and patients at Coalinga State Hospital are taking credit for helping to defeat it. A current patient, a former patient who now represents the patients as part of an informal political lobbying group, and Coalinga Mayor Nathan Vosburg have confirmed that patients shared their intentions to oppose the sales tax, which was needed to save 23 city jobs, unless the city could convince them otherwise. When that didn’t happen, the patients apparently doomed the measure, which failed 578 votes...

    Essex County Clerk Chris Durkin looked across the city of Newark on election Day and told InsiderNJ that he sees “brisk turnout” in the county with the largest raw rolls of Democratic voters among all counties. Durkin said he believes this gubernatorial election will likely reflect the largest numbers in recent gubernatorial election history. Reports out of Maplewood and Montclair reflect solid numbers. ” I see it bigger than all those elections,” Durkin said. “I think we could see the highest turnout for governor in the last 40 years in Essex, but it won’t show by percentage.” That’s because in...

    State Department investigation provides insight on Democrats’ imported electorate. President Donald Trump estimated that three to five million illegals had caused him to lose the popular vote, which Hillary Clinton carried by 2.8 million votes. Trump duly launched a commission on voter fraud headed by vice president Mike Pence and Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach. That probe had Democrats bellowing through their bullhorns. “There’s simply no evidence of widespread voter fraud in this country. Period.” That was California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 84, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who is seeking another term next year. As it happens,...

    A liberal-led push to overhaul the Electoral College could be moving from the op-ed pages to the courtroom, as a Harvard professor who flirted with a dark-horse Democratic presidential bid last year vows litigation to change the system. Criticism of the Electoral College was resurgent in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss. Clinton recently said she wants the system "eliminated." The latest effort isn’t aimed at dismantling the structure entirely – but rather, the winner-take-all system used by 48 states in awarding electors, which ends up focusing presidential races on a handful of battlegrounds. “With a winner-take-all, most of...

    Hillary Clinton’s former campaign lawyer is meddling in Nevada politics. Worse, he’s saying that voting in a special election would be an “undue burden” on minorities. Imagine the outrage if a Republican argued that voting is a “burden” on minorities. The lawsuit shows just how desperate Democrats are to stop recall efforts against Sens. Joyce Woodhouse, D-Henderson, Nicole Cannizzaro, D-Las Vegas, and Patricia Farley, I-Las Vegas. Marc Elias, general counsel for Hillary for America, filed the complaint Monday in federal court.

    It is a privilege to live in a country where someone like myself, raised by parents with 10th grade educations, can live the American dream. I am a small businessman, a coach, a father, a husband -- not a career politician. I ran for office because I believe in the American dream -- the faith that education, initiative, and hard work can earn anyone a better life in this country -- is a dream worth defending. I was raised to believe that in America, the greatest country on Earth, each of us has a voice in our government. This is...

    A Democrat Texas judge blocked the Secretary of State (TxSOS) from turning over data to President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity from the public voter rolls. The TxSOS is required by state law to turn over the public information to anyone who requests it properly as long as it is not for commercial use. Judge Tim Sulak, a Democrat who serves on the 353rd District Court located in Travis County, filed a temporary restraining order that prevents TxSOS Rolando Pablos from turning over voter information to the commission established by President Donald Trump in June, according to...

    Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, is registered to vote in New York State as a woman, state records show. The New Jersey native first registered to vote in the Empire State in November 2009 as a female, records first discovered by the liberal-leaning American Bridge group. It wasn’t immediately clear what happened that Kushner was registered as a woman, and was an active voter as of this November. The 36-year-old real estate developer has been tasked with reforming the government and moderating a peace plan in the Middle East. “Kushner can't even fill out the most basic...

    Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started a national conversation by kneeling during the national anthem to highlight racial injustices in America, was widely criticized after he revealed he didn’t vote on Election Day. But as it turns out the 29-year-old, credited by some as the face of the Black Lives Matter movement, has never been registered to vote in any election, according to a report by The Sacramento Bee. Mr. Kaepernick, who turned 18 in 2005, never registered to vote in his home state of California or Nevada, where he attended the University of Nevada, Reno, from...
