Illinois tries to disenfranchise its voters

Knuckledraggin has the latest hissy fit from the left

The left continues its descent into oblivion

I thought Democrats were really concerned about “voter suppression?”

I guess you can’t suppress people’s votes if you don’t give them the choice in the first place. Illinois is trying that out by passing a new law that forbids Trump from being on the 2020 ballot unless he releases five years of tax returns.

And here is the money quote from another clueless Democrat who apparently has never heard of our constitution

“If you want to run for vice president or president of the United States, hey, what’s wrong with providing your tax returns for the past five years?” state Sen. Tony Munoz (D) reportedly said while legislators debated the bill.

“If you’ve got nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry about anything,” he added.

Nuclear-Grade Stupidity! 

Democrats and election fraud

Democrats can say the darndest things. In response to voter ID laws, or any other common sense effort to prevent voter fraud, they ran that there is no such thing as voter fraud. Then, if a Democrat loses a tight race, the same leftists scream about stolen elections. And, in CaliMarxifornia they play fast and loose with vote integrity, as Animal points out

California is at it again.  That is, their voting laws are at it again.  Excerpt:

In California’s 39th Congressional District, Republican candidate Young Kim was widely anticipated to snag an electoral victory and fill outgoing Rep. Ed Royce’s shoes, becoming the first Korean-American woman to serve in Congress. On election night and the next day, she held a wide lead ahead of Democrat Gil Cisneros. While waiting for the official ballot tally, Kim flew to Washington D.C. to attend orientation events for freshmen members of Congress, including the class photo op, but as ballots continued to pour in up to a week after the election, the results flipped and she ultimately lost.

Watching every single contested congressional race flip from Republican to Democrat days after the election is, as Ryan put it, weird. While Here are six reasons California’s electoral system is deeply flawed.

Here’s the biggest source of possible shenanigans:

2. ‘Ballot Harvesting’ allows political operatives to drop off other people’s ballots.

new state law allows third parties to pick up ballots and drop them off at polling locations on behalf of that person, a practice known as “ballot harvesting.”

Yeah, sure nothing could possibly go wrong here right? The Federalist has several more examples of laws that could easily aid anyone wanting to steal an election

Would Democrats collude to steal elections?

Do birds fly?

Sarah Hoyt states the obvious:

“Have you noticed there has never been a late-found vote-hoard that gives victory to Republicans? What do you think the chances are? Look out the window, either pigs are flying or it’s fraud.”

Pigs are not flying:

On élection night, it appeared that the GOP had picked up three Senate seats. Now, two of them may be in doubt.
In Florida, there didn’t seem to be any question on November 6. Senator Bill Nelson conceded that he had lost to Governor Rick Scott, while Andrew Gillum likewise conceded to Ron DeSantis. But then the national Democratic Party swung into action. Election officials in Broward County and Palm Beach County began ignoring Florida election laws and, in the case of Palm Beach, a court order. And Nelson and Gillum have withdrawn their concessions.

Nobody can out-cheat Florida Democrats, but Georgia’s trying:

The Democratic Party of Georgia tweeted Saturday evening that a “handful” of Georgia counties reported thousands of “new” absentee, early, and Election Day votes not accounted for by Republican candidate Brian Kemp. . . .
Kemp had 1,975,806 votes to Abrams’ 1,916,931 — a margin of 58,875 votes — leading 50.28 percent to [Democrat Stacey] Abrams’ 48.78 percent. . . .
Kemp’s campaign argued that it was “mathematically impossible” for Abrams to pull ahead or get close enough to trigger a recount, even with the remaining uncounted provisional and military ballots.
But, Abram’s campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo shot back, saying Kemp “lied” about the numbers.

The latest from Georgia:

The unsettled race for Georgia governor tightened over the weekend as Democrat Stacey Abrams prepared litigation to force the counting of more provisional ballots, while Republican Brian Kemp’s campaign said her refusal to concede was “a disgrace to democracy.”
The clash heightened as a cache of 5,500 provisional and mail-in ballots were reported that showed Kemp’s lead over Abrams shrinking slightly to about 59,000 votes. Some came from counties that days earlier reported all votes had been tallied.
The newly-reported votes overwhelmingly tilted to Abrams and triggered a wave of celebration for Abrams’ supporters. But she still needs to net about 22,000 votes to force a Dec. 4 runoff, and there aren’t many votes that have yet to be reported.  . . .
About 40 counties had yet to report their final provisional ballots by Saturday afternoon, including many larger left-leaning counties where Abrams stands to gain votes.
One of the largest is Fulton County, which on Friday reported rejecting 1,556 of the total 3,722 provisional ballots cast. Nearly 1,000 of the ballots were disqualified because they were out of county, and another 581 were not registered to vote. Three were rejected because they weren’t U.S. citizens.

There is no known limit to how many previously undiscovered votes Democrats can “find” at this stage. Whatever number is necessary to steal an election. they’ll find them somewhere, given enough time. Democrats have no shame about their transparent criminality. Everyone sees what they’re doing, but if you say anything about it, you’re racist:

Go ahead read it all, and get angry!

Lindsey Graham nails Florida election shenanigans

By any Means necessary is the motto of the left

Once again, I ask that you VOTE November 6

Is this election important? Yes! Mike McDaniel explains

It is tempting to believe there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Congressional Republicans and Democrats.  There is truth in the assertion.  But with Donald Trump in the White House, a great many of the self-imagined elite–particularly Republicans–are being forced to at least pretend conservative sensibilities.  They’ve even voted for things they wouldn’t have touched without his influence.  In fact, based primarily on Mr. Trump’s undeniably conservative results, helped along by the Dems grotesque behavior in attacking Judge Kavanaugh, and Mr. Trump’s steadfast support of the judge, even Never-Trumpers are grudgingly, very grudgingly, admitting they might—just might—vote for him.

Even Democrats are admitting the Party has gone too far to the Left, as Doug Schoen, a generally Democrat operative—he has been very helpful to Hillary Clinton, among other notorious Dems. in the past—notesat Fox News:

The Democrats have a problem, a serious problem, but one that they have yet to acknowledge fully – or frankly, at all.

What’s the problem?

Here it is: Democrats have moved so far to the left that Republican attacks on them for being extremist and too far in the clutches of their tired, out-of-touch leadership have been working. And working well, according to the recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

The Republican campaign now is simple: just focus on how far left the Democrats are, and how beholden its candidates – particularly Congressional candidates – are to the unpopular Democratic leadership in both the House and the Senate.

Quite so. Schoen essentially admits it, but it’s worth repeating: the Democrat Party is essentially indistinguishable from socialists and communists.  That’s not a good look for an American political party.  It puts the Party and its candidates and supporters in direct opposition to the Constitution and normal Americans.

But right now, as we head into the final two weeks of the election campaign, it appears that both the Senate and potentially the House races are tightening. And it appears that Donald Trump’s attacks on the Democratic Party for being out of touch with the electorate and too confrontational – as well as led by two failed leaders of the past – are working.

Go read the rest and then, VOTE!

Just remember that the left cares deeply about the “integrity” of elections

Sure they do, almost as much as they care about power

On one hand, Democrats say they are Very Concerned about the integrity of our voting system. On the reality hand, they want people who aren’t legally allowed to vote to vote for them

Democratic congressmen call for inquiry over DOJ, ICE voting subpoenas

A pair of North Carolina congressmen called Thursday on the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to abandon subpoenas seeking millions of voting records in the state and said they will call for investigations into the “legality and motivations” of the DOJ’s demand.

Democratic 4th District Congressman David Price and 1st District Congressman G.K. Butterfield said the subpoenas sent out late last week by U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon’s office, seem “clearly designed to disenfranchise and intimidate voters and to disrupt the administration of an impending election with major state and national implications.”

They said they’ll ask the inspectors general for the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security, which houses ICE, to probe the issue. They’ll also seek committee hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives, they said.
