Odd it is that Democrats only talk about voter fraud, they usually use the term “voter suppression”. They do this LOVE them some because such words raise the specter of days when Jim Crow laws was in use. Democrats love them some race baiting. They also only speak of voter suppression, or stolen elections when they know they are going to lose an election, can you say Stacy Abrams boys and girls? Otherwise they vehemently oppose voter ID laws, because RAAAAACISM! They also oppose gerrymandering, but only when Republicans do it. But, really is voter suppression a thing or not?Specifically, is there a danger in mail in ballots on a mass scale.
According to the left any Republican that even raises a modicum of concern over dishonest people, lets call them leftists, using these ballots to “correct the election results”. But, is there a real danger? The Lid answers that definitively
What happens if you get a ballot in the mail, and it doesn’t have any candidates from your party on it? Does THIS count as voter suppression?
Remember when objecting to large-scale mail-in ballots was proof that you wanted to suppress the vote? Well, it didn’t take long for their concerns to be vindicated—suppressing GOP votes.
We live in crazy times, where it’s getting harder to tell the difference between basic incompetence, like an honest printer error, or a dirty trick played by someone willing to win ‘by any means necessary.’
“The slate of candidates was all Democrat from Joe Biden down to dogcatcher, but on the upper right it clearly stated it was a Republican ballot and it had my name and correct information on the return envelope,” Karen Gardner, the chairwoman of the Bernardsville Republican Municipal Committee, said.
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. MORE
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.
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
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.
A 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
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.
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 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:
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.
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.
A gun used by Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez when she was Dallas County sheriff has not been returned, Sheriff’s Department records show.
Valdez was supplied with the Beretta 9mm pistol in 2011 when a gun of the same model she owned “sustained a malfunction,” according to a sheriff’s department report obtained by The Dallas Morning News.
“It is likely that this weapon could have been stolen or misplaced during Sheriff Valdez’s moving transition,” the report stated.
A police report had to be generated because the weapon could be in the hands of a criminal or used to commit a crime.
Raul Reyna, spokesman for the sheriff’s department, told The News Monday in an email: “Former Sheriff Valdez has been approached about the missing weapon and is working with the Sheriff’s Department to locate the missing firearm.”
Thankfully, Texas Governor Greg Abbott will easily win re-election
Tucker Carlson went after the city of San Francisco where illegal immigrants are allowed to vote for school board representatives, as well as similar voting laws like Boston and New York City could potentially offer, Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“We have watched our leaders hyperventilate about the threat other countries pose to our democracy. Foreign nationals seek to influence our election, they have told us again and again ominously, and by the way they’re right. Some countries do do that. It’s a fair point. But with that in mind, it was a little bit surreal to watch today as Democratic politicians in California encouraged foreign nationals to actually vote in our elections,” Tucker said.
He continued, “It wasn’t treason, they explained. How could it be? Progressives are doing it. It’s a form of civil rights. In San Francisco, citizens of other countries, including illegal aliens, are now allowed to vote for school board. Other offices will not be far behind, you can be sure of that. San Francisco is the biggest city to try this, but the trend is spreading nationwide. In a number of cities in the state of Maryland, for example, foreign citizens can vote in all local elections.”
“There is a push underway in New York City and in Boston to allow the same thing,” Carlson continued. “None of this is treasonous. It’s not a hacking of our democracy, it’s nothing Putin or Donald Trump would do,” he said, adding that a New York City councilman described the new voting laws as “a restoration of rights” and that “non-citizens have been voting in this country longer than they haven’t.
Carlson stated, “Now we’re not going to pretend to understand exactly what that means. We have no idea what it means. We do know the left no longer even pretends to believe in borders or in citizenship. They’ve rejected the notion that America is even a country.”
Carlson added, “It’s an idea, they tell us again and again, though really, you get the sense they think it’s a division of Amazon, staffed by faceless replaceable drones, meaning you, for now, and then your foreign replacement if you don’t work eagerly enough or if you complain. Keep in mind, none of this is a threat to our democracy. It’s the essence of democracy, somehow.”
Go ahead stand up, applaud, and spread this around!
NBC DFW – An attorney for a voting rights group says President Donald Trump’s administration has told her that the federal government no longer plans to challenge Texas’ strict voter ID law.
Danielle Lang, of the Washington-based Campaign Legal Center, said Monday that plaintiffs in the case were told by the U.S. Justice Department that it will be filing documents to formally drop its opposition to the Texas law. She called the decision an “extraordinary disappointment.”
The move marks a stark reversal under new Attorney General Jeff Sessions from the Obama White House, which joined a lawsuit against Texas in 2013. The Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
You know the Left will scream “voter disenfranchisement” over this, making utter fools of themselves
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will participate in their first joint event as presidential candidates Wednesday night.
NBC News and MSNBC – along with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America – will host the the Commander-in-Chief Forum in New York City. It will be a one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of 300 or so members of the military.
Matt Lauer – who is listed as a “notable past member” on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website – is moderating the forum. During an interview on MSNBC Wednesday, Lauer said he will not ask Trump and Clinton the same questions.
“I’m not going to be repeating the same questions, though some will overlap,” Lauer said. “The veterans will get a chance to ask these candidates their own questions.”
Lauer said that when he takes questions from the audience, he expects most of them to revolve around the system-wide failure of the Veterans Affairs program.
“Lack of treatment – that’s where I think they will focus their questions.”
Clinton will be asked questions first for approximately 30 minutes, then Trump will go on stage next.
