  • Elissa Slotkin Votes to Ban Gas-Powered Vehicles During UAW Strike

    Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), who is running for U.S. Senate, voted against legislation that would bar states from capping the sale of gas-fueled cars; one of the main drivers of the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike is President Joe Biden’s move to push electric vehicles over gas-powered engines. The House voted on bipartisan lines to pass the Preserving Choice in Vehicles Purchases Act, which would amend federal law to block state moves to eliminate the sale of gas-powered engines and it would bar the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) from issuing waivers that would ban such of these vehicles.
  • The Swamp Is Trying to Cancel Nearly 4.3 Million Votes in Deep Red Texas

    PJ Media ^ | 09/08/2023 | DARRELL FROST
    During Donald Trump’s norm-shattering 2016 campaign, he famously promised to “drain the swamp,” referring to the concentration of power and the penchant for corruption among Washington’s political elite and bureaucratic class. The highlight of this effort was probably when Trump sacked FBI Director James Comey a few months after he became president, ostensibly for botching the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server and leaked emails, though it was really an attempt by Trump—as he admitted—to quash the agency’s investigation into frivolous claims of Russian election interference. That decision was the tipping point in the events that led to the appointment...
  • REVEALED: Election Officials Lobbied for Colorado’s BAN on Hand-Counting Votes.

    National Pulse ^ | JULY 7, 2023 | JACK MONTGOMERY
    Colorado legislation supposedly aimed at increasing election security effectively outlawed hand-counting ballots in most of the state, and election officials are the ones who requested the ban. The Colorado Election Security Act (SB22-153) was drafted in response to Mesa County clerk Tina Peters allowing election skeptics to replicate hard drives to check for evidence of fraud. SB22-153 contains a number of provisions, with the state government mostly focusing on those outlawing replication, and banning people convicted of insurrection or sedition from becoming election officials. At a meeting of the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED), Colorado’s elections director Judd...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 28, 2023
    Most voters are worried that next year’s presidential election could be affected by cheating, and nearly half agree with a popular song challenging the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s election in 2020. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters are concerned that the outcome of the 2024 presidential election will be affected by cheating, including 40% who are Very Concerned. Thirty-two percent (32%) aren’t concerned about cheating in next year’s election, including 15% who are Not At All Concerned.

    An “assault weapons” ban lacks the votes to pass in the Senate, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) admitted during an appearance Sunday on CBS News’ Face the Nation. Murphy said, “I want to ban ‘assault weapons.’ I think it’s just absolutely unconscionable that we allow these ‘weapons of war’ to be in commercial circulation. But there’s not the votes to do that.” He continued, “But what are there the votes to do?

    Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake refuses to concede to now-appointed Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs because she keeps finding evidence that the election was a hot mess and likely skewed the outcome. Her latest discovery, thanks to a freedom of information request: Some 200,000 votes in Maricopa County, which skews red, were not properly tabulated and actually failed. “Officials sabotaged Election Day. On November 8th (when 75% of votes were for @KariLake) nearly 1/4 of a MILLION voting attempts FAILED, according to the system log files that were obtained via FOIA. This is huge, folks. Huge,” she tweeted on Monday.

    Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Thursday voted for former President Donald Trump as Speaker of the House. The vote came during the seventh round of voting in the contentious speakership battle, which is currently in its third day: My vote for Speaker of the House today? Donald John Trump. — Rep. Matt Gaetz (@RepMattGaetz) January 5, 2023 Gaetz stands as one of the several Republican holdouts refusing to unite behind Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Speaker of the House, initially forcing a second vote earlier this week — an occurrence the country has not seen in 100 years....

    More than half of the members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted remotely Friday for the $1.7 trillion government spending bill, claiming in proxy voting letters they could not be present to vote because of the “ongoing public health emergency.” More than 220 members — from both sides of the political aisle — used the proxy voting option to vote for the 4,000-plus page omnibus bill, the final vote of the 117th Congress barring unforeseen circumstances.

    The Hill ^ | 11/29/2022 | Jared Gans
    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said 20 members of the House Republican Conference are “pretty hard no” votes against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) becoming Speaker next session. Biggs said in an interview on the podcast Conservative Review with Daniel Horowitz that those who plan to not vote for McCarthy are not all from the House Freedom Caucus, the most conservative group in the body. Biggs, a former chair of the Freedom Caucus, ran against McCarthy to be the GOP’s nominee for the speakership earlier this month. McCarthy won the vote, 188 to 31, with five representatives voting for neither....

    Gun control advocate Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday that Democrats in the Senate “probably” do not have the votes to pass a ban on “assault weapons.” The Hill noted that CNN’s Dana Bash asked Murphy on State of the Union if Democrats have the votes to secure an “assault weapons” ban. Murphy responded, “Probably not. “But let’s see if we can try to get that number as close to 60 as possible,” he added. “If we don’t have the votes, then we’ll talk to Senator Schumer and maybe come back next year with maybe an additional senator and see...

    This week, The New York Times published a column by a left-wing academic (forgive the redundancy), John Della Volpe, director of polling at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics. In his first sentence, Mr. Della Volpe reveals his politics. He described young Americans as "stressed and sickened by thoughts of their rights and democracy slipping away." That is what Harvard and just about every other university tells America's young people: "Because of the Right, you should be stressed and sickened -- the Right is taking away your rights and destroying your democracy." The terrible irony is that there is...

    The U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a nationwide injunction pending appeal against President Joe Biden’s student loan debt forgiveness program Monday, adding to previous legal action blocking the plan. The program seeks to forgive $10,000 in federal student loan debt for individuals with incomes under $125,000 and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients, with the Biden administration claiming it had the authority to institute the program under the HEROES Act of 2003 and an emergency situation sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas and South Carolina had filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration...

    President Joe Biden on Monday acknowledged that his promise to legalize abortion nationwide would not come to fruition in the next Congress. “I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify,” Biden said at a press conference in Bali, Indonesia after a reporter asked him about the future of his promises on abortion. The president made the issue of legalizing abortion nationwide a critical part of his midterm campaign message.

    If CTH had a small part in helping people to reset their reference points around modern electioneering, well, that’s a good thing.The difference between “ballots” and “votes” is previously explained {SEE HERE} and absolutely critical to understand before moving forward.Thankfully a large percentage of conservatives, intellectually honest independents and even some establishment republican donors have read our research and are now starting to have the ‘votes‘ vs ‘ballots‘ conversation. That understanding is critical, because any conversation that does not accurately identify and accept the problem is futile.Having said that, please do not think we are smarter than the RNC. We...

Cortez-Masto is trailing Laxalt by just 0.1 percent with only about 7 percent of the vote left to be counted.

    As the political discussion centers on the 2022 wins and losses from the midterm election, one thing that stands out in similarity to the 2020 general election is the difference between ballots and votes. It appears in some states this is the ‘new normal.’Where votes were the focus, the Biden administration suffered losses. Where ballots were the focus, the Biden administration won.While initially the ballot form of election control was tested in Deep Blue states, through the process of mail-in returns under the guise and justification of “expanding democracy,” a useful tool for those who are vested in the distinction,...

    A flood of political content has been found that is being sent to voters in swing states through more than 2,500 computers owned by a politically-diverse group of registered voters showing concerning election interference. Independent media is reporting on the story while the corporate media is ignoring the emerging information. “We are aggregating and analyzing search results on the Google and Bing search engines, messages displayed on Google’s home page, autoplay videos suggested on YouTube, tweets sent to users by the Twitter company (as opposed to tweets sent by other users), email suppression on Gmail, and more,” The Daily Caller...

    One of the unions representing rail workers said Wednesday that its members rejected a proposed deal with rail carriers and voted to move forward with a strike that could have severe consequences for the U.S. economy. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers issued a statement saying that roughly 4,900 of its members turned down the tentative agreement with the National Carriers' Conference Committee (NCCC) representing railroads, but noted that they would hold off on striking for at least a few weeks while other unions continue their talks.

    Prize-winning author Toni Morrison famously joked that President Clinton’s style and ability to deliver for Black people made him the first Black president. By Morrison’s logic, Joe Biden is the third Black president — with President Obama as the second. President Biden’s vice president is a Black woman and he put the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. And as the midterms approach, Biden’s work to reduce student debt and lower drug prices are big wins for Black Americans, especially given the racial wealth gap. But Biden’s most potentially enduring political victory for Black people is taking shape in...
