  • Automatic Voter Registration (AVR): The newest form of election cheating

    American Thinker ^ | 10/02/2023 | Joe Fried
    To many state administrators, it is not good enough to permit citizens to register to vote when they get a driver's license. They must be registered automatically when they interact with any state agency — not just the DMV. Oregon became the first state to implement AVR (Automatic Voter Registration) in 2016. Since then, the concept has spread like wildfire, mostly among Democrat-controlled states. As of February 2023, there were 23 states trolling for extra voters with AVR systems. However, the systems are not all the same. There are "front end" AVR states, where the individual can opt out of...
  • Never Forget the Jan. 6 Defendants: Of all the evil that Biden has perpetrated, none is so vile as the imprisonment of Americans known as the J6 defendants

    Of all the evil that Biden has perpetrated, none is so vile as the imprisonment of Americans known as the J6 defendants. Daily, they suffer cruel and unusual punishment; they are incarcerated in solitary confinement, their medical needs are ignored, and they do not have proper legal defense. The term "American Gulag" aptly describes their ongoing plight. The Epoch Times video titled "The Real Story of January 6 "reveals the truth that has been hidden from the American people. While a narrative has been set that what took place that day was an insurrection, key events and witnesses have been...
  • Here’s What Democrats Reportedly Want In Exchange For Helping Kevin McCarthy Keep His Job

    Tampa Free Press ^ | October 2, 2023
    Democrats are planning on requesting several concessions of Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in return for their help if a motion to oust him is brought this week, Politico reported Monday. ... In order to receive their help to keep his speakership, Democrats will likely demand McCarthy adhere to the spending levels he previously agreed upon with President Joe Biden, as well as ending the impeachment inquiry brought against the president, giving party members more seats on committees — including equal representation on the Rules Committee — and additional aid to Ukraine, according to Politico. “The only way Kevin McCarthy...

    Hunter Biden repeatedly sought assistance from his father, President Joe Biden, to help him during a period of financial difficulties, newly released text messages show. Hunter Biden asked his father in November and December 2018 to send him money for his alimony payments and additional “financial issues,” according to text messages between Hunter and Joe Biden released Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee.

  • The West Point conundrum: How do you fight for a country you’re taught to hate?

    West Point has a storied place in American history. During the Revolution, Benedict Arnold tried to give the fort to the British. After the Revolution, it became America’s first military academy, graduating such luminaries as Ulysses S. Grant, Dwight Eisenhower, Generals Omar Bradley, Douglas MacArthur, and George S. Patton, and many other men who have shaped our nation. All the alumni were driven by patriotism even if, as with Robert E. Lee, that patriotism was misplaced. Now, though, West Point has a “minor” that is the essence of anti-patriotism. Welcome to West Point’s Diversity and Inclusion Studies Minor.West Point describes...
  • If you think Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is a good guy, think again

    American Thinker ^ | 10/02/2023 | Andrea Widburg
    Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a lifelong, true, loyal leftist, suddenly became popular among conservatives because he was one of the few leftists to speak out against COVID vaccines. This wasn’t any particular wisdom on his part; he’s always opposed all vaccines. However, because of this stance, when RFK Jr threw his hat in the Democrat primary ring against Biden, some conservatives got excited. This man, they thought, would siphon votes away from Biden, handing Republicans a win. But that’s not what will happen—and RFK knows it. In other words, he’s another weapon against Republicans. I’ve never trusted RFK, despite his...

    WASHINGTON — Russia’s strategy to win the war in Ukraine is to outlast the West.But how does Putin plan to do that?U.S. officials said they are convinced that Putin intends to try to end U.S. and European support for Ukraine by using his spy agencies to push propaganda supporting pro-Russian political parties and by stoking conspiracy theories with new technologies.The Russia disinformation aims to increase support for candidates opposing Ukraine aid with the ultimate goal of stopping international military assistance to Ukraine.Russia has been frustrated that the United States and Europe have largely remained united on continued military and economic...

    Burger King remains open as usual in Russia despite the brand's owner pledging to leave more than a year ago. Restaurant Brands International (RBI) which owns 15% of the fast-food's franchise business in Russia, told the BBC it had "no new updates to share at this time" on its exit. The firm said in March 2022 that it had started the process to leave Russia...

    Far from an idealistic crusade for democracy, America’s interest in Taiwan involves economic security, alliances, great power politics, and military deterrence.This month, Chinese military flights near Taiwan reached an all-time high. In a single day in September, aircraft from the People’s Liberation Army crossed into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone more than 100 times. As China’s campaign of military intimidation toward the self-governing island reaches new heights, it’s important to remember why U.S. support for the island nation is more vital than ever.Deterring China from launching an invasion of Taiwan and dominating the world’s largest market zone is a vital...

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Scruggs will have his day in court, but no single case will restore the equilibrium razed by J6 prosecutors.By way of introduction, my name is Adam Johnson — but most people know me as “the Lectern Guy.” On Jan. 6, 2021, I kind of broke the internet after I was photographed smiling and waving as I was carrying then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s podium through the Capitol rotunda. Suffice it to say, the authorities did not look kindly on what I did, and I was later arrested.Eventually, I was transferred to a courtroom after four...

    Last week Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that Trump and his two sons (and several other entities and people) were liable for overstating the value of his holdings. Essentially this was the civil case equivalent of finding him guilty of fraud.AdvertisementIn his 35-page ruling, Judge Arthur Engoron said Trump continually lied on his financial statements and was able to get favorable loan terms and lower insurance premiums as a result. Trump’s legal arguments defending the statements are based in “a fantasy world, not the real world,” Engoron wrote.The judge went on to say that the case was essentially a “documents case,”...
  • Putin orders first ever nationwide nuclear drill, prepares nuclear bomb test at Arctic Circle

    Russia will hold its first nationwide drill simulating widespread nuclear strikes on the country, daily Magyar Hírlap writes. The one-day nuclear attack exercise is based on the assumption that NATO will launch a nuclear strike on Russia, destroying 70 percent of Russian housing and life-support facilities. In the scenario, martial law is imposed in the country and a full-scale mobilization is ordered. The test will also model the secondary threat posed by damage to nuclear power plants and other key facilities. State and regional authorities will have to organize emergency rescue teams to provide food, medical supplies and protection against...

    For all the talk of a potential Michelle Obama 2024 presidential run, almost no one mentions Michelle's greatest political vulnerability: the terrible way she has treated the black community in Chicago. For Michelle, it began with her running away from all-black schools as a child, and it continued with her abuse of the black community in her professional career. Not surprisingly, Michelle Obama does not mention any of her outrageous behavior toward the Chicago black community in her two recent autobiographies, Becoming and The Light We Carry. But Donald Trump most definitely should. If Michelle Obama becomes the 2024 Democrat...
