Judicial Watch has given these 11 states 90 days to clean up their voter rolls, as mandated by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), or face law suits.
- Majority R: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee.
- Split: Florida, Iowa.
- Majority D: Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New York.
The NVRA requires states to make a reasonable effort to remove the names of voters who have died, moved away, or are not U.S. citizens.
Judicial Watch lists the counties in each state that have more registered voters than they have voting-age citizens.
But it’s a WIN for the Democrats!
LIBERALS LIVE IN A FANTASY LAND WHERE EVEN IF YOU LOSE, YOU CLAIM YOU WIN!
Kansas Treasurer Ron Estes won the special election in the 4th district against Democratic civil rights attorney James Thompson. Estes won with 52% of the vote.
Democrats tried to spin the win into a positive because the margin of victory was small. Naturally, many members of the political media joined them.
The New York Times was not much better:
While Mr. Thompson fell short, his unexpected strength represents a warning shot toward Republicans. And it will galvanize Democrats’ candidate-recruitment efforts for next year’s campaign.
But then the House Republican campaign arm released a venomous ad accusing Mr. Thompson of favoring abortion rights for gender selection. Soon after, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas scheduled a rally for Mr. Estes on Monday. And Mr. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence recorded automated get-out-the-vote calls.
Thompson could not even take the high road:
“Mr. Estes did not beat us,” Mr. Thompson told supporters after the race was called. “It took a president of the United States, the vice president, the speaker of the House, a senator coming into our state and a bunch of lies to drum up a vote.”
His campaign and the DNC also tried to make this look like a win for the left:
“I think the momentum we’ve seen here on the ground, and outpouring of support from Democrats across the country into races like this, is a good signs for Democrats nationally regardless of what happens tonight,” Thompson campaign manager Colin Curtis said before the election.
Yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a speech on the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, reaffirming President Donald Trump’s commitment to securing the border and enforcing immigration laws.
“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump Era,” Sessions said. “The lawlessness, the abdication of duty to enforce our laws, and the catch-and-release policies of the past are over.”
The attorney general also announced that 50 more immigration judges would be added this year to help relieve the backlog. Another 75 will arrive in 2018.
On March 9, 2017, Trump’s Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced that the number of people illegally crossing the U.S. southern border has dropped 40 percent since President Trump took office.
Even more remarkable, Kelly noted that border agents usually see a 10 to 20 percent increase in illegal immigrant apprehensions from January to February.
Another good sign is a sudden increase in the fees charged by human smugglers. Before the election, the usual fee was around $3,500. It’s now up to $8,000.
“Stop laughing please …. shhhh!”
Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Hitler never used chemical weapons. Likely, he was thinking that Hitler never used chemical weapons on the battlefield (which Germany did do in WWI) or that he had never used them against innocent German civilians (as Saddam Hussein did in Iraq and Assad did in Syria).
But given that Hitler most assuredly used chemical weapons to gas millions of Jews, Poles, and other “eugenically unfit” members of the European population, Spicer’s comment has sparked a HUGE backlash.
Of less interest to the Left Stream is the fact that the very elderly Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg referred to Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the women of the Senate.
Call me cynical, but I’m inclined to think that if the first error had been made by Obama’s Press Secretary and the second by one of the conservative SCOTUS justices, the MSM and Democrat spittle spewing would be exactly reversed.
President Trump has appointed social conservative Roger Severino to head the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Severino, who served as director of the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at the conservative Heritage Foundation, has written and published extensively against leftist “gender ideology” and the Obama administration’s promotion of transgenderism in the military.
He previously worked as CEO and legal counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, one of the world’s premier legal organizations defending religious freedom.
Leftie heads are exploding.
Last summer, as part of an investigation into possible links between Russia and the Trump campaign, the FBI obtained a secret FISA court order to monitor the communications of Trump adviser, Carter Page.
IOW, Trump was right all along that the Obama administration wiretapped his campaign.
The Obama FBI and the Obama Justice Department got the warrant after convincing an (Obama appointed?) Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) judge that there was probable cause to believe Page, then a foreign policy aide to Trump’s campaign, was acting as an agent of Russia.
Despite the wire tapping that was supposed to uncover hard evidence that a Trump campaign staffer was playing footsie with the Russians, Carter Page has not been accused of any crimes.
It seems to me that, if the wiretap had uncovered said evidence, Obama’s people would‘ve indicted him in a big, public way last fall when it would’ve badly damaged Trump’s campaign and helped put Hillary into office.
The fact that all they’ve done is leak innuendos since Trump got elected leads me to conclude that the wire tap turned up a whole lot of nothing.
