    Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Brian Hagedorn, a conservative, explained his ruling against a contest-of-election lawsuit brought in the state by President Donald Trump’s campaign.In an interview with The New York Times on Friday, Hagedorn said he found nothing in the law or the evidence presented in the case that would have allowed Trump to win the lawsuit.A narrowly divided Wisconsin Supreme Court on Dec. 14 rejected Trump’s lawsuit challenging the election results in the battleground state about an hour before the Electoral College cast Wisconsin’s 10 votes for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. In the 4-3 ruling, the court’s three...

    If the state senator was in the field working, she certainly was not ‘indefinitely confined’ under the meaning and intent of state statute. So, did she break the law? How many others did?MADISON, Wis. — Outgoing Wisconsin state Sen. Patty Schachtner, a full-time county medical examiner, earlier this year claimed to be “indefinitely confined,” receiving the special status accorded under state election law. The Democrat and her husband signed a statement claiming they were confined to their home “because of age, physical illness or infirmity” in seeking an absentee ballot to be automatically sent to their Somerset home. It begs...
  • The Supreme Court Was Right: Texas Didn’t Have Standing

    Those disappointed in the outcome of this election and of the Texas suit should not lose sight of the constitutional values that will last far beyond any one lawsuit and any one election.On Friday, the Supreme Court denied Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint challenging the presidential election results in four states. The court’s order explained that leave to file was denied “for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution” because Texas had not “demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”This was the right result for...

    Okay, I understand that there is a good case to be made before the U.S. Supreme Court that the states of Pennsylvania and Georgia changed their election laws or rules without authorization from their state legislatures. However, what of the other states in question? Have other states changed their election laws or rules without authorization from their state legislatures?

    As of right now I count THREE states that have violated the election laws as passed by the State Legislatures: Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Wisconsin. Pennsylvania is the one we are most familiar with in that the State Supreme court extend the period when the mail ballots could be received. In Georgia, the Secretary of State in March of this year entered into an agreement with the Democrats to change the way the absentee ballots are handled. Finally, in Wisconsin, the election supervisors made changes to the ways the elections are handled without permission of the state legislature. In each case,...

    Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos, has temporarily banned President Trump’s account for “hateful conduct” stemming from footage of the president’s speeches. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson told Fox News. A rebroadcast of Trump’s 2015 campaign launch -- when he famously criticized people crossing the Mexican border to illegally enter the United States -- and comments Trump made at his recent Tulsa rally...

    The “Dry Alabama” Facebook page, illustrated with stark images of car wrecks and videos of families ruined by drink, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. Along with a companion Twitter feed, the Facebook page appeared to be the work of Baptist teetotalers who supported the Republican, Roy S. Moore, in the 2017 Alabama Senate race. “Pray for Roy Moore,” one tweet exhorted. In fact, the Dry Alabama campaign, not previously reported, was the stealth creation of progressive Democrats who were out to defeat Mr. Moore — the second such secret...

    Election Law Violation Was Hillary’s Idea Orders to use Donald Duck to foment violence at Trump rallies came straight from the top. Democrat Hillary Clinton personally authorized illegal dirty tricks operations against Republican Donald Trump’s campaign, according to top Democrats appearing in undercover video. In the third Hillary-related video released by ACORN slayer James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas Action Fund this past Sunday (Oct. 23), Clinton is directly implicated in a scheme to use Donald Duck to mock Trump and troll his supporters at Trump campaign rallies. Among Disney cartoon characters Donald Duck was a natural choice. After all,...

    LITTLETON (CBS) – Donald Trump’s Massachusetts headquarters was vandalized with vulgar graffiti. The front entrance at the Trump state campaign headquarters in Littleton were spray painted with a phallic drawing, a curse word, and “Nazi” written in large letters. Trump’s Massachusetts headquarters is located on King Street. The controversial presidential candidate is currently leading polls in the Republican party. “These types of acts are surprising and certainly not representative of the kind of town that Littleton is and the kind of people who live in this community. People have a right to express their views and disagreements, but the line...

    Madison — The state must revise its laws governing political spending — especially that done by independent groups — in light of recent free speech decisions by federal courts, the head of Wisconsin's elections agency told lawmakers Tuesday. Spurred by federal judges, outside groups and their own preference for less regulation, GOP lawmakers are considering changes to the state's complex campaign laws that would likely make it easier for independent groups to spend money to influence Wisconsin politics. Kevin Kennedy, executive director of the state Government Accountability Board, told a joint elections committee of legislators that decisions in federal appellate...

    The Federal Election Commission deadlocked in a crucial Internet campaign speech vote announced late last week, leaving online political blogging and videos free of many of the reporting requirements attached to broadcast ads — for now. All three Republican-backed members voted against restrictions, but they were opposed by the three Democrat-backed panel members, including Vice Chairwoman Ann M. Ravel, who said she will lead a push next year to come up with rules for government political speech on the Internet. It would mark a major reversal for the commission, which for nearly a decade has protected the

    The Kansas Supreme Court sided Thursday with Democrats attempting to remove their candidate from the ballot in Kansas’s razor-tight Senate race, a blow to incumbent Republican Sen. Pat Roberts’ reelection prospects. The withdrawal of the Democratic nominee in the race, Chad Taylor, clears a path for independent Greg Orman to challenge Roberts one-on-one. Polls show Orman leading in the contest in a head-to-head matchup. Although Taylor announced earlier this month that he was ending his campaign, Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach had ruled that Taylor’s name must remain on the ballot because his withdrawal failed to meet the precise...

    Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters. (The New York Times was scandalized at the time, though I strangely can´t find their editorial calling for Kathleen

    Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. 'Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who's Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community." USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of "institutionalizing policies" favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law....

    .S. District Judge Reggie Walton ruled that Obama political appointees, through a series of e-mails, did confer with Justice Department lawyers about the status and resolution of the case prior to the DOJ's dismissal of the charges. Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, says the ruling contradicts the testimony of Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez that political leadership was not involved in the decision. "Surely the public has an interest in the documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials' representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision making," Fitton states. "So, it's clear here the court found...

    CHICAGO—The Obama re-election campaign has quietly opened a counteroffensive against Republican-backed changes to election laws that Democrats say will suppress votes for their candidates and limit their get-out-the-vote drives. The effort, led by former White House counsel Robert Bauer, prompted the suspension of an Ohio law limiting early voting. Campaign officials produced educational materials to counter a Wisconsin law that requires voters to produce photo I.D.s—but disallows those used by Wisconsin colleges. By this spring, the Obama re-election campaign will mount what Mr. Bauer called an unprecedented "voter protection" effort, fielding thousands of volunteers in battleground states to help navigate...

    A group of lifelong Democrats recently produced a compelling documentary allleging rampant voter fraud by the Obama campaign during the 2008 election. Doug Ross reported: Referring to the controversial 2008 Democrat presidential primary, Carolyn Tackett asks, “Was Barack Obama selected rather than elected?.” Fox & Friends had an explosive interview with Gigi Gaston, a writer/director who has made a documentary outlining the rampant voter fraud perpetrated by the Obama campaign during the 2008 primaries against Hillary Clinton. Gaston is a lifelong Democrat whose grandfather was a Democratic governor of Massachusetts… Gaston is not some partisan hack but someone who cares...

Just fast track a Bill like this through state legislatures. Bill makes many changes to election law including the following: 1)The bill allows municipalities to set up satellite absentee ballot stations for early voting. These stations apparently could be done in college dorms, outside of bars, or other inappropriate locals. 2) The current open government practice of allowing any citizen to challenge individual ballots would end as monitoring of elections of...
