  • One-Party Domination (for a While, Not Forever) Is Good for Democracy

    The Daily Beast ^ | September 26, 2023 | Matt Lewis
    Talk about being too close for comfort. The 2024 presidential race is all tied up, according to the latest NBC News poll. This survey (unlike some polls), is no outlier. The race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump has been effectively tied for months. Looks like we’re in for another nail-biter. On one hand, this stalemate makes perfect sense. As Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter reminds us, Trump won the 2016 Electoral College by about 79,000 votes in three states, Biden won in 2020 by less than 45,000 in three states, and Republicans won the House by a very narrow...

    Hours after Joe Biden announced his re-election campaign on Tuesday, his vice-president and 2024 running mate, Kamala Harris, delivered a fiery call to action for voters alarmed by the loss of constitutional protections for abortion. “This is a moment for us to stand and fight,” she said to a packed auditorium at Howard University.....
  • Hemingway: America Can’t Survive A Two-Tiered Justice System

    “A country does not survive two standards of justice, particularly two standards that are so far apart,” said Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway during a speech at the National Conservatism Conference in Miami. “It can’t abide allowing corporate-funded insurrectionists, who control the entire propaganda press, to go to war against the American people, destroying and attacking federal courthouses, the White House, monuments, while then handing down draconian punishments to even those on the far-exteriors of the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Rule of law has to mean one rule of law, not the variables we see weaponized right now by the...

  • HR 4 ‘Gives Federal Bureaucrats Control’ Over State Election Laws, Expert Says

    The House Rules Committee voted Monday on rules governing debate on election legislation known as HR 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The controversial bill now goes to the House for a vote. After Democrats failed to pass HR 1, a partisan piece of election legislation, they crafted HR 4, which Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow Hans von Spakovsky says is a danger to states’ election rights. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) HR 4 “gives federal bureaucrats control over all these state [election] rules all over the country,” says von Spakovsky, a...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – San Francisco’s Department of Public Works wants to replace 3,000 existing green trash cans with bigger and better-looking ones. The prototype being considered will cost taxpayers about $20,000 per can. “It’s insane. Insane,” said Fred, a San Francisco resident.

    Conservative Brief ^ | 4/22 | Martin Walsh
    Democrats have been pushing for years to have the District of Columbia officially recognized as the 51st state in America. And on Thursday, they made that happen in a highly partisan vote. The Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted 216-208 on Thursday to pass a bill that would grant statehood to Washington, D.C. H.R. 51, otherwise known as the Washington, D.C. Admission Act, would give the district two senators and a voting representative in the House.

    MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said on his Monday show “The Last Word” that Democrats were abusing the reconciliation process to pass President Joe Biden’s infrastructure package. The Senate parliamentarian ruled Monday Democrats can use the reconciliation process for infrastructure, meaning it can pass with a simple-majority vote.

    A federal judge this week said that the Democrat Party is close to controlling the press as he detailed what he described as shocking bias against Republicans.D.C. Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman outlined his opposition to the Supreme Court’s key decision in 1964 in New York Times v. Sullivan, which has since protected many media outlets from lawsuits.Silberman, a Reagan appointee, wrote that the ruling is “a threat to American Democracy” and must be overturned.“The increased power of the press is so dangerous today because we are very close to one-party control of these institutions. Our court was once concerned...

    Despite likely seeing California Sen. Kamala Harris inaugurated as vice president alongside a Democratic president for whom an overwhelming majority of Californians voted so dutifully, California is looking to be the biggest loser of the 2020 contest. Our stateÂ’s most pressing problems, which were unaddressed in the run-up to the election, are getting worse. If California-style government continues to creep across America, as it will if Harris and running mate Joe Biden win, we can expect similar problems to creep nationwide.COVID sucked the air out of the room in the presidential debates, and in the media in general. However,...

    VACAVILLE, Calif. — How many things can go wrong at once? On Wednesday millions of California residents were smothered by smoke-filled skies as dozens of wildfires raged out of control. They braced for triple-digit temperatures, the sixth day of a punishing heat wave that included a recent reading of 130 degrees in Death Valley. They braced for possible power outages because the state’s grid is overloaded, the latest sign of an energy crisis. And they continued to fight a virus that is killing 130 Californians a day. Even for a state accustomed to disaster, August has been a terrible month....
  • Vanity: 'Oregon has been a mail-in voting state for 20 years with no problems.' Assuming ending up with a one-party democrat-ruled state is not a problem.

    Just heard one of the socialist women of color Biden VP hopefuls state that Oregon has been a mail-in voting state for 20 years with no problems. Guess it's not a problem that Oregon is now a solid one-party democrat-run state, even though in the past Oregon went for Republicans Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan. California is now also a solid one-party democrat-run state even though we used to vote in a lot of Republicans. Our democrat-run state has perfected ballot harvesting where democrat operatives go to nursing homes, hospitals and to homes where records show absentee ballots were mailed and...

    How one-party rule came to Washington state King County Republicans use to dominate the suburbs. That era is over. by Chris Vance / May 8, 2020 Illustration of suburbs With Republicans failing to win elections in the King County suburbs, politics in Washington state is increasingly a fight between mainstream and progressive Democrats, writes Chris Vance. The forces changing American politics – from Trumpism, to democratic socialism, to a global pandemic — are truly tectonic. I recently argued that 2020 will be a realigning election that will usher in a new party system, the seventh in our nation’s history. Essentially,...
  • George Washington mural 'traumatizes' San Fran students; high school may remove art

    Washington Times ^ | May 2, 2019 | By Douglas Ernst
    A San Francisco school district may remove an 83-year-old mural of President George Washington from, ironically, George Washington High School because it “traumatizes students and community members.” The work of artist Victor Arnautoff, a communist, may no longer be progressive enough for “Fog City.” His 13 panels for the high school, created in 1936, have been deemed problematic by the San Francisco Unified School District. Officials say some the artist’s historical depictions are offensive to Native Americans and blacks. Laura Dudnick, a spokeswoman for the district, told educational watchdog the College Fix via email Thursday that Mr. Arnautoff’s work was...
  • What is the California 'jungle primary' and how did it change state elections?

    San Diego Union Tribune ^ | May 31, 2018 | Luis Gomez
    If the California primary election seems a little crowded on June 5, it’s not by accident. California is one of three states that employ an election process known as the “jungle primary” that leaves the top two vote getters, regardless of political party, facing off in runoff elections in November. That means in theory a Democrat could compete against another Democrat, or a Republican could compete against another Republican instead of having the top vote getter in each party’s primary advancing.
  • Maine Passes Ranked-Choice Voting

    Associated Press Maine Public ^ | 11-9-16 | Associated Press
    Maine residents have approved a ballot question that will allow voters to rank their choice of candidates. Under the election overhaul, ballots are counted at the state level in multiple rounds. Last-place candidates are eliminated until a candidate wins by a majority. The voting style will apply to races for U.S. Senate, U.S. House, governor, state Senate and state House. Proponents of ranked-choice voting say it will prevent a governor from being elected with less than 50 percent of the votes. That was the scenario when Gov. Paul LePage was elected in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. Ranked choice voting...

    As everyone's been hearing and talking about, James O'Keefe and Veritas have torn away the facade to expose the mass fraud, corruption and assaults on democracy being carried out by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign against Trump and Republicans (not to mention Bernie Sanders before that), with devastating videos that are already dominating social media this week. Already Scott Foval, Bob Creamer and other crooked Dem operatives have been fired, and the fallout is only beginning. As usual and unsurprisingly, the "mainstream" media has been almost totally silent on these smoking-gun revelations-- DNC operatives openly talking about how they've...

    As Donald Trump holds off endorsing House Speaker Paul D. Ryan in Wisconsin's Republican primary, his running mate enthusiastically endorsed Ryan on Wednesday, calling him a “longtime friend” and “strong conservative leader.” “I strongly support Paul Ryan, strongly endorse his reelection,” Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said during an interview on Fox News on Wednesday afternoon. “I believe we need Paul Ryan in leadership in the Congress of the United States to rebuild our military, to strengthen our economy and to ensure that we have the kind of leadership in this country that will make America great again.” Trump has angered...
