  • Federal Appeals Court will Hear Novel Argument, Invoking 19th Amendment, Against Felon Voting Restrictions (Florida)

    Florida Phoenix ^ | July 20th 2021 | Michael Moline
    A federal appeals court rendered a decisive victory for Gov. Ron DeSantis and legislative Republicans last year in upholding Florida’s law requiring felons to pay all fines, fees, and restitution before they can win back the right to vote under 2018’s Amendment 4. But that ruling didn’t quite kill every challenge to the law, known as SB 7066. Novel claims asserting violation of the Nineteenth Amendment, which extended to women the right to vote, are still alive and headed for oral arguments on Thursday in Atlanta. "Neither the Supreme Court nor this court has ever addressed the appropriate legal standard...
  • Lone GOP State Senator Stops Arizona Bill to Limit Automatic Mailing of Absentee Ballots in ‘Temper Tantrum’

    Breitbart ^ | 23 Apr 2021 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY
    The Republican-controlled Arizona State Senate failed to pass an election integrity bill that tightens the rules for maintaining lists of voters who automatically are mailed absentee ballots Thursday when State Sen. Kelly Townsend (R-16) surprised her colleagues by joining with all 14 Democrats who voted no when the bill came to the floor. The bill’s sponsor, Republican state Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita, said on the floor it was “disappointing to be on the receiving end of someone’s temper tantrum.” Townsend said she wouldn’t vote on any of the other proposed election changes until after the audit was completed, and complained that...
  • REVEALED: White de Blasio staffer sparked bitter race row after telling black colleague it was 'negging' and 'confrontational' to bring up race before mayor marked 100 years since women got the vote

    A race row broke out among New York City Hall staffers last month, 11 minutes before Mayor Bill de Blasio was set to give his daily coronavirus briefing and include a nod to the 100th anniversary of woman's suffrage. City Hall emails obtained by the New York Post show that the argument exploded over the wording of talking points prepared for the mayor after they were sent to staffers ahead of his briefing on August 26. The talking points included a commemoration of the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, while also noting that 'not all women could...

    Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton talked about how she is working to "erode" white privilege out of her children during a conversation with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) about voting rights in America. The conversation was part of a "Women for Biden" online event. "You know, congresswoman, certainly my children are young, but we believe they're young but still citizens so we talked about the ratification of the 19th Amendment and women's equality day but how fundamentally incomplete that victory was," Clinton said. According to the former first daughter, the 19th Amendment was a "flawed victory" because "indigenous and black women...

    President Trump’s posthumous pardon of Susan B. Anthony did not receive the warmest welcome from Democrats and members of the media. On Tuesday, the president marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave the women the right to vote, by granting a pardon of the famed suffragette, who was arrested in 1872 for violating laws that had permitted only men to vote in the presidential election and was later convicted for voting illegally and sentenced to pay a fine of $100 and court costs. However, an excerpt in The New York Times report on the pardon raised eyebrows....

    It was a huge step forward for American women when, exactly 100 years ago, they finally gained the guaranteed right to vote with ratification of the 19th Amendment. But to Alice Paul, the step wasn’t nearly large enough. Paul, a suffragist who’d waged hunger strikes and endured forced feedings in jail so women could get the vote, equipped herself with a law degree and got to work writing another constitutional amendment — one that would guarantee women equal rights under the law. She introduced that amendment — now known as the Equal Rights Amendment — in Congress in 1923. Of...

    When the 19th Amendment went into effect 95 years ago today (8/26), The Nation was already looking ahead to the deeper implications of women’s suffrage. “What Will They Do With The Vote?” asked a piece by Stella Crossley Daljord. The answer has implications for the state of American politics today, almost a century after the extension of suffrage to women.

    Virtue: A habitual and firm disposition to do the good. Cardinal virtues are prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Traditional male virtues are strength, courage, independence, heroism in combat, and sexual initiative. For many years, Jesus has been portrayed as a Galilean flower child, walking around the countryside being nice, preaching love and peace, and having a thing for Mary Magdalene. Somehow, this easygoing hippie runs afoul of the corrupt power structure, and ends up dying with career criminals, under horrible circumstances. Of course, even a casual reading of the Gospels reveals something far different. If anything, Jesus is a confrontational,...

    RedState ^ | November 7, 2013 | John Hayward
    The Virginia governor’s race was yet another example of the massive voting gap in a huge demographic: single people, particularly single women. According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli won handily on the “hard” issues facing Virginia voters, and won most other demographic slices, but Democrat Terry McAuliffe won big with single people, crushing Cuccinelli by nearly fifty points among single women. A similar dynamic could be observed in the 2012 presidential race, where the Obama campaign made a very concerted effort to win over single women – so concerted that it sometimes appeared ludicrously clumsy to critics. Rush Limbaugh...

    Boston Magazine ^ | August 6, 2013 | Steve Annear
    There’s a 50/50 chance that the Boston Common could become the stomping grounds for a group of topless women later this month. August 25 marks national “Go Topless” day, where women from dozens of cities across the country will bare it all in public—some risking arrest—to advance a woman’s right to walk around half-nude. The annual “Go Topless” day always falls around the time of Women’s Equality Day, which marked the passage of the 19th Amendment, in 1920, allowing women to vote. Now, the movement is trying to reduce the gender gap when it comes to accepting that females have...

    I wish to undertake a critical analysis of the incomplete works of attorneys Orly Taitz, Phil Berg, and Mario Apuzzo, concerning the meaning and definition of "natural born Citizen" within the political context and intent of Article II. It is my contention that none of the attorneys working on exposing the illegal usurper known as Barack Obama have described any valid theory of law that properly explains why Obama cannot possibly qualify to be President under Article II. I will show what I believe are their mistakes and limitations and expose their incomplete efforts as failed hypotheses rather than valid...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Earl Taylor has spent 31 years teaching that "the Founding Fathers have answers to nearly every problem we have in America today." Only in recent months has he found so many eager students. On a recent Saturday, he held the rapt attention of 70 of them. The eight-hour seminar held at a roadside inn here was one of half a dozen "Making of America" sessions nationwide that day, all sponsored by a little-known organization based in Idaho. Two years ago, Taylor, president of the National Center for Constitutional Studies, made about 35 trips to speak to small...

    From the day the founding Fathers risked their liberty and life by signing the Declaration of Independence, there has been those who have wanted to sink this great ship called the United States of America. Well 143 years later the good ship America took a torpedo hit that at the time seemed like just another glancing blow. What many still consider the greatest step forward in equality for the sexes, was more then just a glancing blow however. It was in fact a deadly strike that entered the very heart of the ship and has been smoldering since. The...

    Though the Glenn Beck clips are classic examples of the nonsense this nitwit pushes out all day on his radio and TV shows, the interview with Samantha Bee from the CPAC future is the funniest thing I ever did see. Gunfloss... All independent voters should be rounded up, hog tied, have their eyelids stapled open like Alex and forced to watch this 3 minute video. One viewing would be enough for these 40% of the voters to end of all this crazy right-wing crap once and for all.

    Newsweek ^ | February 22, 2010 | Jonathan Alter
    Glenn Beck has now supplanted Rush Limbaugh as the most influential broadcaster in America. He's the one the tea-party movement looks to. Beck wowed the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) crowd Feb 20 with his attack on progressivism, which he said must be "eradicated." "Progressivism is the cancer in America and it's eating our Constitution," Beck told the crowd. Now that Beck has given his marching orders, expect to hear all the Fox Puppets echoing him. The goal is to discredit "progressivism" as they did "liberalism." Beck fancies himself a historian; his patter is full of historical references that seem...

    At around the turn of the century, before or just after World War I, the progressive amendments were passed. Not since the post Civil War era was there ever such a speedy passage of amendments to the Constitution or since. In a period of about 10 years or so, we saw four radical amendments passed and ratified into the Constitution. They are amendments 16, 17, 18, and 19. The era in which they were passed was one of optimism among the American Left and many of the influential leaders. New areas of science were opening up as well as new...
