  • Non-Citizen Voting Push Is Part Of Agenda To Rid America Of Citizenship: Election Expert

    The recent New York City law to allow at least 800,000 noncitizens to vote in municipal elections is unconstitutional and likely to be overturned in court, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Heritage Foundation’s election law reform initiative and former member of the Federal Election Commission. “It’s actually pretty clear that it violates the New York State Constitution—it has a provision that specifically says that you have to be a citizen to vote in all elections in the state of New York, and that includes local elections,” Spakovsky told The Epoch Times on Jan. 19. “I also think it...
  • CNN’s Cooper: Reported Trump Draft Order to Seize Voting Machines Is ‘*******’

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper said Friday on his show “Anderson Cooper 360” that a reported executive order draft, never signed by former President Donald Trump, that called for the Pentagon to seize voting machines following the 2020 election was “*******.”

    Joe Biden has been called a pathological liar, Pinocchio on steroids, delusional and totally detached from reality. That’s unfair. Instead, let’s just say the president has a flair for fiction. Think of him as a master storyteller to put Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm to shame. Here are a few of my favorite Biden bedtime stories:The Democrats Freedom to Vote Act will secure the right to vote for millions of Americans the GOP is trying to disenfranchise – Biden said Republicans working for election reform (secure ballots) are on the side of George Wallace not Martin Luther...
  • The Senate filibuster vote dooms much of Democrats’ agenda

    A failed vote on filibuster reform guarantees little progress on voting rights — and many other policies. The Senate on Wednesday voted 48-52 against changing the chamber’s filibuster rules, dooming much of Democrats’ agenda for the near term. Democrats were ultimately split on the rules vote, with two opposing the change, and 48 in favor of it. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) were the only Democrats who voted against the rules change, which would have made an exception to the 60-vote threshold many bills need to advance. No Republicans voted to support the reform. Had it passed,...

    “Anybody who believes in American democracy has got to vote to enable us to go forward with 50 votes to suspend the filibuster, at least on this vote,” he [Sanders] said. “I hope we have 50 votes. If we don’t, they’re going to have to go home and explain to their constituents.” During negotiations over the Build Back Better Act, Sanders repeatedly voiced frustration with Manchin’s opposition to expanding Medicare benefits and Sinema’s reluctance to give Medicare wide-ranging power to negotiate lower prescription drug prices. Sinema eventually signed off on a scaled-down proposal to make prescription medications more affordable.

    Senate Democrats will force a vote this week to try to change the rules and enact a talking filibuster to pass voting rights legislation, getting rid of the 60-vote hurdle. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced on Tuesday that Democrats will force a rules change vote once Republicans block a voting rights bill as soon as Wednesday.

    If resident Joe Biden's disorderly and lethal Afghanistan withdrawal was the moment that fractured voters' regard for him, then his vicious Atlanta speech last week may be the moment that defines his presidency. Speaking Tuesday at Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University, Biden uttered venomous, brutal accusations lacking factual basis. His shouting-in-the-wind delivery was inexplicable, and his decision to lash out at members of his own party -- Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema -- appears to have only strengthened their resolve not to give in to his demands. Biden called those who disagree with his political views on legislation...

    Vice President Kamala Harris, in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech that appeared targeted at a pair of fellow Democrats, called on senators to pass stalled voting rights bills or be “complicit” in disenfranchising people. Harris’ stern pitch for the seemingly fated bills on Monday follows President Biden’s controversial speech last week that likened Republican senators to racists for blocking the legislation.

    Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Judge Michael Gableman has been investigating the 2020 presidential election results in Wisconsin since he was appointed last year. Gableman was given the task of looking into the 2020 election in Wisconsin. In October he announced he was focusing on five locations where irregularities were noted related to interference from foreign players like Facebook. Special Counsel Michael Gableman has subpoenaed Wisconsin election officials as part of his investigation into the 2020 Election irregularities. In October Gableman served subpoenas to the administrator of the Wisconsin Election Commission, the executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission, and four...

    How will Democrats react to the thumping that most observers believe they will get in the 2022 midterm elections? Or to the possibility that in three years a Republican could be sworn in as the 47th president? They relish the Jan. 6 opportunity to endlessly relive the supposed danger that a disgraceful but still pathetically ineffectual riot posed to the republic, which they have spent the last 12 months misrepresenting as an “insurrection” or failed coup d’etat by Republicans. The media treated the date as a sort of new national holiday to reinforce the awfulness of former President Trump and...

    US Congresswoman Rep. Kat Cammack sounds the alarm. The Democrats are breaking all the rules to end elections in America forevermore. Rep. Cammack did not vote for the Democrats’ scam move to steal elections. No Republican did. Officially, this bill was created by the Democrats to concur with Senate amendments and further amend the bill to merge the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act into previously passed legislation extending NASA’s authority to lease its facilities. Rep. Cammack tells it all on the Democrats’ efforts in this BS voting rights bill.

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) said on Sunday that the Biden administration has not reached out to him to discuss voting rights legislation, as the White House works to pass two key Democrat-backed bills. NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd questioned Romney on attempts to unify the country, noting that there appears to be only a few Republicans willing to work with the Biden administration, with Romney among them.

    WASHINGTON – Hunger strikers for voting rights legislation began to feel the health consequences on the second day of their strike outside the U.S. Capitol, but remained committed. "I'm feeling very tired, cold and hungry, obviously, but committed to being here," Un-PAC co-founder Shana Gallagher told Fox News Digital. Gallagher said she's also "having trouble sleeping" and experiencing "really bad" headaches. West Virginia graduate student Dominic DiChiacchio said "the hunger is starting, but it's still so early, so the morale is still really high."

In the speech, Biden suggested opponents were akin to former Democrat Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a self-declared segregationist at the height of his popularity.

    As we begin this new year, it’s not an understatement to say that the Democrats are flailing. In fact, I’m being rather generous with that word choice. Oval Office occupier Joe Biden’s poll numbers have been in freefall for as long as anyone can remember now. We in conservative media could write nothing but fact-based news stories about his latest failures and never run out of material. Democrats love blaming their myriad and monumental failures on everyone but themselves. Well, they make an exception for Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, of course. But beyond those two, they’ve got a closetful...

    Stacey Abrams: a smut novelist, failed gubernatorial candidate, activist huckster and sometimes a smart politician who can at least read the electoral tea leaves when they’re glaringly transparent. Abrams has made a career out of selling the non-issue that voters in Georgia and across America are being disenfranchised by voting laws that are racist and biased against Democratic voters. Despite her limited success in transforming any voting laws, she has shown a remarkable ability to enrich her personal fortune by owning two homes worth $1.4 million. That’s not bad for someone who claims to represent the disenfranchised. You can argue...
