    The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that Republican lawmakers in North Carolina can intervene to defend the state’s voter ID law against legal challenges. Supreme Court expands gun rights in major Second Amendment ruling DOJ: Maine violating ADA, over-institutionalizing children with disabilities The 8-1 decision did not deal directly with the lawfulness of the voter law, but rather which government bodies can defend the law in court. The law that gave rise to the procedural dispute, S.B. 824, with only limited exceptions requires in-person and absentee voters to present one of 10 recognized forms of photo identification. The measure drew...
  • Tales From the Swamp: How a Republican Senator’s Son Partnered With a Liberal Dark Money Group To Sink Voter ID Expansion. ( Roy Blunt )

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | May 18, 2022 | Collin Anderson •
    A George Soros-linked dark money behemoth has a peculiar partner in its bid to sink voter ID expansion in Michigan—a group of Republican operatives led by a sitting Republican senator's son. Over the past year, liberal dark money group Sixteen Thirty Fund has spent $2.5 million opposing a Republican-led petition drive to expand Michigan's voter ID requirements. Nearly $400,000 of that money has gone to Groundgame Political Solutions, a shadowy consulting firm that a trio of Republican operatives—including Sen. Roy Blunt's (R., Mo.) son, Andy Blunt—privately launched in May 2021, corporate filings show. The firm, which Blunt first registered in...

    Top Democratic attorney Marc Elias has been using a dark money network to fund lawsuits geared toward advancing progressive causes, from fighting voter ID laws to enshrining universal mail-in voting, according to the watchdog group Americans for Public Trust. Elias, who previously helped push the “Russia collusion” hoax after serving as Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer, recently parted ways from the Perkins Coie law firm to start the Elias Law Group – a firm dedicated to advancing the Democratic Party’s agenda in the name of “voting rights.” “Elias Law Group is a new law firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., with...

    Former President Trump is doubling down on claims the 2020 election was rigged in favor of President Joe Biden, telling a crowd in South Carolina he won the 2020 election. Mr. Trump made the assertion after telling a crowd of supporters in Florence, S.C., about a new state investigation in Wisconsin that found improprieties in the way the 2020 election was carried out in nursing homes and other residential facilities. The same report, produced by the Wisconsin Office of the Special Counsel, also accused a group funded by Mark Zuckerberg of committing election bribery when it targeted $8.8 million in...
  • ‘Election integrity’ turns white-hot, and all minorities favor voter ID laws

    Election integrity has skyrocketed to one of the top concerns in the congressional midterm elections, with huge majorities of Democrats, independents, and Republicans citing it as a driving issue. While Democrats and Republicans have different views of what “election integrity” means, together, 83% of likely voters believe it will be a factor in the elections for House and Senate — and the 2024 presidential election. For Republicans, Rasmussen Reports found that 89% said the issue is “important,” with 62% calling it “very important.” Among Democrats, 78% called it "important," including 52% who said “very important.” And 84% of independent voters...

    (Reuters) - Thousands of Texas voters' mail-in ballots for midterm primary elections have been rejected for failing to comply with new Republican-backed identification requirements passed in the wake of former President Donald Trump's false claims of widespread fraud, county officials said. Election officials in six of the state's largest counties, which are collectively home to about a third of Texas' population, are reporting unprecedented rates of invalid ballots, almost entirely because voters are neglecting to include an ID number on the envelope as the new law demands. In Harris County, home to Houston and 4.7 million people, 3,475 ballots representing...

    The U.S. declared last year that the actions against Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China as genocide. But according to ESPN’s J. A. Adande, committing genocide against Uyghurs is no worse than red states requiring voter ID. This moron actually said this on Friday’s Around the Horn. Adande said Americans should not question what these modern-day Nazis are doing to Uyghurs. This creep is comparing voter ID to genocide, slave labor, concentration camps, forced abortions and forced sterilizations. ESPN should fire this guy not for his incendiary comments, but for being this dumb on national television. Keep in...

    "Biden's decision to use the MLK holiday as a backdrop to push his voting bill exposed another rift: There isn't even agreement in the late civil rights leader's own family about the need for the legislation. With drama and fury, President Joe Biden declared to the nation on Martin Luther King Jr. Day that state laws requiring voter ID or banning mass mailing of absentee ballots amounted to an "assault on our freedom to vote," especially for minority Americans. Four days earlier, a poll in Michigan told a different story: Three-quarters of the battleground state voters supported ballot ID requirements,...
  • Joe Biden's Deplorable Lies May Not Even Be in His Partisan Interest

    How do you explain why an ultra-experienced politician makes a major speech on the behalf of a legislative goal that is both doomed to fail and unpopular with voters? Especially when his speech is boycotted by the bill's chief backers and consists of one big lie after another? resident Joe Biden's speech in Atlanta on Tuesday raised these questions, although most of the media are unlikely to ask them. The speech purported to rally support for the Democrats' legislation to impose federal standards on voting in all 50 states -- legislation that has no chance of passing. It doesn't even...

    resident Joe Biden finally delivered his "voting rights" speech in Atlanta, telling a crowd: "The next few days, when these bills come to a vote, will mark a turning point in this nation's history. Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadows, justice over injustice? I know where I stand. I will not yield. I will not flinch. I will defend your right to vote, our democracy against all enemies foreign and domestic. And the question is: Where will the institution of the United States Senate stand?" These were little more than the mendacious ravings of a demagogue. Biden's...
  • Securing Elections is #1 Priority

    As state legislatures open their 2022 sessions, their top priority should be election integrity. Topics such as freedom from Covid tyranny, redistricting, and rejecting critical race studies are also important, but without secure elections then all other issues are put at risk. A new poll shows that the number of Americans who don’t believe that Joe Biden was elected fairly has grown among Republican voters. According to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released last week, a whopping 75% of Trump voters recognize that the last election was “rigged and stolen” to hand it to the unfit Biden. Today only 9 percent...

    A young man who looks like a teenager walks into a liquor store and pulls a bottle of cheap whiskey off a shelf. He puts it down at the checkout counter and pulls out his wallet. The clerk at the counter looks at him skeptically. "Can I see your ID?" he asks. "Yes," says the young man, who instantly takes his driver's license out of his wallet and hands it to the clerk. The driver's license indicates to the clerk that the customer in front of him had turned 21 two months ago. He sells him the cheap whiskey. Then...

    As Democratic lawmakers push America towards vaccine passports to participate in society - they're also pushing to weaken safeguards on voting, under the guise of 'voting rights,' a new Senate bill would force states to pair voter ID requirements with vaccine passports.The legislation is the idea of Republican Sen. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota who says if a state forces people to prove their vaccination status, they should also have to prove who they are when they go to vote.Sen. Cramer says he wants to point out the hypocrisy in Democrats who support vaccine passports but oppose voter ID -Fox5"It...

    A left-wing activist with ties to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) nominated by President Joe Biden to be a federal judge has argued photo ID and proof of citizenship constitute “voter suppression.” Nancy Gbana Abudu, the deputy legal director at SPLC, was picked by Biden in December to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. The 11th Circuit covers parts of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The vacancy came about upon the retirement of Judge Beverly B. Martin — a President Barack Obama appointee. Abudu worked for the ACLU...

    By now, you’ve become familiar with automatic mail ballots. You also probably are familiar with election officials suspending the statutory rules governing elections in 2020 as they did in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and elsewhere. If you really get around, then you’ve come across Zuckbucks, the nearly half-billion dollars that came from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and went into government election offices in urban cores to create turnout machines for Joe Biden. But you might not have met ERIC. ERIC isn’t a person. ERIC stands for the Electronic Registration and Information Center. ERIC is an entity that has more to do with...

    After the Atlanta Braves had the 2021 MLB All-Star Game moved out of their park due to a slate of restrictive voting laws in Georgia, it turns out that baseball's biggest event, the World Series, might end up in their backyard instead. The Braves defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-4, on Tuesday to advance to the National League Championship Series (NLCS), where they'll face either the San Fransisco Giants or Los Angeles Dodgers. The winner of the NLCS will then advance to the World Series to play the champion of the American League, either the Boston Red Sox or Houston Astros....

Last week San Francisco’s wildly popular Fisherman’s Wharf In-N-Out location was found in violation of the city’s vaccination mandate for indoor dining by not preventing the entry of customers who were not carrying proper vaccination documentation, (not just Vax ID mind you, but Vax ID PLUS photo ID), the San Francisco Department of Public Health shut them down. They’ve since reopened for takeout but remain closed for indoor dining. In...
