    Republican leaders in North Carolina’s GOP-dominated General Assembly vowed late Friday to override Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of a state voter identification bill. Earlier Friday, Cooper said no to the legislation, which more than 55 percent of the state’s voters had approved in a recent referendum. The referendum called for the state’s constitution to add an amendment requiring in-person voter photo ID. “Requiring photo IDs for in-person voting is a solution in search of a problem,” Cooper said in a statement.

    Nearly 80 percent of the equipment for staging the December 23 election in DR Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, was destroyed when a fire ripped through a warehouse, as violence flared just 10 days before the vote. The blaze, which officials blamed on arson, was the latest drama of an increasingly tense election campaign ahead of the December 23 election when the country will choose a successor to President Joseph Kabila. Also Thursday, a teenager was shot dead in the central Kasai region as party faithful gathered ahead of a rally by Felix Tshisekedi of the UDPS, one of the leading opposition...

    Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that a House committee will “take the first steps” toward obtaining President Trump’s tax returns once Democrats take control of the House. Pelosi, who is expected to become the Democrats’ next speaker of the House, said the process could be “challenging” as Trump has vowed to resist their requests. “There is popular demand for the Congress to request the president’s tax returns,” Pelosi told reporters. “I’m sure the White House will resist, so the question is, ‘Where do we go from there?’”
  • Do Democrats Have a Health Care Plan?

    Nancy Pelosi says there are three reasons the Democrats took back the House: “Health care, health care and health care.” She may be right. Half the Democratic TV ads were on health care. By one estimate, Democratic candidates spent a reported $90 million on health care ads alone. If nothing else, they have really promised to do something about health care. So what’s their plan? To find out I went to a site called A Better Deal, which is maintained by Senate Democrats. This site tells you what you would expect to happen if the Democrats had captured the Senate...

    When asked to explain my belief that Obama’s presidency was a construction created from approximately 10 years of pre-thought exquisitely planned detail, many people are puzzled by my reasoning. If you peel back the layers to the Milli Vanilli roadshow – what you will notice is the strategy of putting specific ideologies into the legal affairs offices of all the “non-political” constructs. The Pentagon office of legal counsel, for example, can handcuff the activity of the Pentagon with legal opinion in opposition to the traditional goals of the organization (See Jeh Johnson). Likewise the CIA office of legal counsel, can...

    Take a look at all the California vote harvesting stories of late. But keep in mind, these vote harvesting schemes have affected (and can affect) only ONE body of the Federal government: the House of Representatives. - No matter how much vote harvesting they do, it will not affect the Senate (there are already two democrats from California) -No matter how much vote harvesting they do, it will not affect the Presidency (Califorinia's number of electors is fixed until the next census, and the number of VOTES does not affect electoral allocation) -No matter how much vote harvesting they do,...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 84 judges confirmed, and likely will remain so till the end of this Congress. Thanks to one senator (Jeff Flake) who apparently refuses to read Antonin Scalia's dissent in Morrison, which, incidentally, Elena Kagan says gets better every year. Jeff Flake's legislative and obstructive power ends in 27 days.

    Most everyone watching the live coverage of yesterday’s George H. W. Bush’s memorial service was touched by the comments made about the man. However, interesting enough, I overhead two 50 something (assumed to be liberal) women talking about former Congressman Alan Simpsons comments about the former President and it struck me as to how different we think, men vs. women / conservative vs. liberal. What Alan Simpson said was, “George H. W. Bush hated no one.” He went on to say, “hatred corrodes the container it’s in.” That was an amazing statement about a man that the media had put...

    The Democrats, themselves, are domestic enemies that concerned the founders, that they could some day destroy the Republic from within. The 2018 Midterm results have revealed a deeper crisis in America that threatens the fabric of our nation. The integrity of our electoral process is now in question. There are political candidates and leaders from both major political parties who are willing and able to subvert the vote in any number of ways. However, there is a powerful perception that the leaders of the “Democratic” Party are more often guilty than those of the GOP with regard to the mutilation...

    BEAVER FALLS, Pa. -- Mike Mikus speculates there are a fairly decent number of voters around here who have voted over the past 20 years in turn for Ron Klink, Melissa Hart, Jason Altmire, Mark Critz, Keith Rothfus and Conor Lamb. That is, they've swung their congressional vote from Democratic to Republican to Democratic, and then Democratic to Republican and now back to Democrat. "While it is not like an overwhelming majority, but I bet you about 15-20 percent of the voters that at one point have voted for each one of those winners of that seat," said Mikus,...

    Election night was painful for California Republicans, but it was nothing compared to the slow torture we’ve endured ever since. For three agonizing weeks, Republicans have watched registrars update their tallies with late absentee and provisional ballots. From Orange County to the Bay Area, it’s the same story playing out with different candidates: Democrats flipping seats with late ballots. First, Mimi Walters. Then, Young Kim. Now, David Valadao. It’s not unusual for late absentee and provisional ballots to break against Republicans. What is unusual is the scale of the carnage. As of this writing, Republicans lost election night leads for...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans moved quickly Monday with a rare lame-duck session that would change the 2020 presidential primary date to benefit a conservative Supreme Court justice and weaken the newly elected Democratic governor and attorney general. The changes being sought would shift power to the GOP-controlled Legislature and allow outgoing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to make one last major mark on the state’s political landscape after he lost re-election in November. Republicans forged ahead despite threats of lawsuits, claims by Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and others that they were trying to invalidate results of the November election...
  • Court docs: Congressman Bob Brady under FBI scrutiny in campaign finance probe (Democrat)

    Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, is a target of FBI scrutiny in an investigation into payments his campaign allegedly made to his opponent in 2012 to encourage him to drop out of the race, according to an approved search warrant application filed in U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Two political consultants have already been charged in the campaign finance probe involving Brady's reelection, but the search warrant application dated Nov. 1 appears to be the first time Brady himself is mentioned as suspected of criminal wrongdoing in the probe. Federal prosecutors last month said Kenneth Smukler and...

    The picture emerging from California's election is grotesque. How again did Democrats engineer their strange midterm victory in Orange County and in other traditionally Republican areas? In that election, apparently-winning Republican candidates were all unseated as the ballots just kept arriving, and arriving, and arriving, until the results flipped. Each and every time. And no such flips happened for Republicans, just Democrats, after Democratic operatives had enough information from televised results to know that Republicans were winning. Democrats say it's just 'counting all the votes.' Welcome to ballot-harvesting. The Daily Caller has an ace report with a video showing...

    After twelve years of GOP rule, the political winds were not at his back in 1992. The passing of George H. W. Bush has brought forth a multitude of tributes praising his public leadership and personal virtue — to which I say “Amen.” Bush, in my opinion, was one of the great presidents of the 20th century. He has too long been overshadowed, first by Ronald Reagan, the great leader of the conservative movement who beat him for the 1980 GOP nomination; then by Bill Clinton, the youthful and “cool” governor from Arkansas who defeated him in the 1992 election;...

    Scary: What would happen if a hostile foreign power could harness the technology to be able to produce high-quality audio and video of people saying things they never said or doing things they have never done? What kind of an impact could that have on, say, our democratic and electoral processes? It would be devastating and could perhaps even destroy the tenuous civil society that remains after years of Democrats attempting to sow distrust in our systems by claiming elections were “stolen” either by Russians or sinister Republicans. And yet, thanks to artificial intelligence, the day when an adversary can...
