Yesterday, President Trump signed an Executive Order to establish the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The Commission will study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections. It will be solely advisory and will submit a report to the President. Vice President Pence will chair the Commission.

President Trump also signed an Executive Order to strengthen the cybersecurity of Federal networks and critical infrastructure. This action maintains that it is the policy of the United States to manage cybersecurity risk as an executive branch enterprise.

Governor Bill Haslam has signed a bill to ban late-term abortions in Tennessee. It will prohibit abortions after 24 weeks, and require abortion clinics to assess whether an unborn child is viable starting at 20 weeks. If the unborn baby is determined to be viable at that point, that abortion also would be illegal. Doctors could face felony charges for violating the law.

Au Revoir, Belle France

Following in a centuries-old tradition the French people meekly surrendered without the enemy within firing a shot. Emmanuel Macron captured 65% of the vote to defeat Marine Le Pen, the populist candidate who rejected the EU hierarchy in favor of self-rule and wanted to stop the flood of Muslim maggots that have so infested the country they will be the dominant force in short order. Macron tallied 20 million votes to LePen’s 11 million, with 12 million abstaining from voting at all. If your children are studying French in school, they’d be better served learning Arabic.

Paris Main Mosque Says Macron Election Gives Hope To French Muslims
Paris’ main Mosque said on Sunday that the election of centrist Emmanuel Macron as France’s next president over far-right leader Marine Le Pen was a sign of reconciliation between French religions.
“It is a clear sign of hope to French Muslims that they can live in harmony and respect of French values”, La Grande Mosquée de Paris said in a statement.

Macron wins French presidency, to European allies’ relief
Emmanuel Macron was elected French president on Sunday with a business-friendly vision of European integration, defeating Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who threatened to take France out of the European Union.
The centrist’s emphatic victory, which also smashed the dominance of France’s mainstream parties, will bring huge relief to European allies who had feared another populist upheaval to follow Britain’s vote to quit the EU and Donald Trump’s election as U.S. president.

With Le Pen defeat, Europe’s far-right surge stalls
The anti-E.U. French leader Marine Le Pen’s larger-than-expected defeat Sunday in her nation’s presidential election was a crushing reality check for the far-right forces who seek to overthrow Europe: Despite the victories for Brexit and Donald Trump, they are likely to be shut out of power for years.

DID YOU NOTICE THE COMMON DENOMINATOR THERE? EVERY NEWS OUTLET LABELED LEPEN AS “FAR-RIGHT” WHILE MACRON WAS THE CENTRIST.
The truth is Macron is nothing more than a puppet with Europe’s worst enemy, Angela Merkel, leading them happily down the path to their own destruction at the hands of 7th century savages who must be amazed how easy it’s been to infiltrate and normalize their murdering, raping habits.

After 6 Deadly Islamic Attacks and 130 Deaths in 3 Years – Paris Votes 90% for Macron
PARIS SEALS THEIR FATE WHILE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY CRINGES. LIKE 90% OF CHICAGO GOING DEMOCRAT AND EVERY OTHER COUNTY IN THE STATE VOTING REPUBLICAN… THIS IS A REALITY I LIVE WITH.

On Sunday Paris voters chose the moderate status-quo candidate Emmanuel Macron over the fierce defender of France Marine Le Pen.
Macron won 90% of the vote in Paris.

KATIE HOPKINS: Macron may have won by a landslide but in the resigned Paris I visited last night it didn’t feel like many people were celebrating a triumph for the globalists

MACRON, 39, MARRIED HIS DRAMA TEACHER, BRIGETTE, 64.
SHEEP LED TO SLAUGHTER HAVING NO IDEA WHAT THEY’VE DONE
I have never known such superficiality. This politics is skin deep. Scratch the surface and this lot would bleed if they thought it would get them attention.
I reflected on the mass protests in Venezuela, the ferocity of the Arab Spring, the defiance of the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong. And wished these people shared such passion.
The division between Paris and the rest of France is as searing as London and the rest of the UK. And the West coast liberals versus real America.
The rest of France voted very differently to Paris. They live with the daily reality of the decisions made by wealthy politicians.
Macron’s biggest rivals are a right-wing woman with a solid core of 11 million ardent supporters and over 16 million people who believe in democracy but would rather not vote at all than give Macron a mandate to lead.
The perfect puppet on stage, has Merkel as his master. And the brand of EM – Emmanuel Macron / En Marche is an illusion, just like the crowd conjured up to dance for the watching world.

Still Crazy After All These Years

Everything you always wanted to know (or didn’t) about the current activities the the democrats’ favorite loser.

Gingrich: Hillary’s New Claims Are ‘Like Watching a Car Wreck in Slow Motion’
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said watching Hillary Clinton explain her election loss to President Trump was “like watching a car wreck in slow motion.”
Clinton spoke with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour today and initially said she took “full responsibility” for the loss.
But, later in the discussion, Clinton said FBI Director Jim Comey’s October letter and “Russian WikiLeaks” were aggravating factors in her loss.

Andrea Mitchell Hits Clinton for Election Excuses: What About ‘Failing to Have a Better Message?’

CNN: Clinton Hasn’t Taken Responsibility for Her 2016 Loss

Clinton: It ‘Would Have Been a Really Big Deal’ If I’d Won

Hillary Begs Trump: Please Tweet About Me!…
Clinton also said that she’d prefer that Trump tweet about her instead of foreign affairs.
“I’m happy to be the diversion,” she said. “We’ve got lots of other things to worry about. He should worry less about the election — and my winning the popular vote — than doing some other things that would be important for the country.”
THREE WORDS: GET OVER IT

Hillary: I Am Now ‘Part Of The Resistance’
“I can’t be anything other than who I am,” the former secretary of state said leading up to her “resistance” revelation.

Hillary Falsely Claims Debate Moderators Didn’t Ask Her About Creating More Jobs

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserted that none of the debate moderators asked her how she was going to create more jobs when in reality that was the very first question asked to her during the first presidential debate.
Clinton made the statement Tuesday afternoon during her first one-on-one interview with a national news outlet since her failed 2016 presidential bid, speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in New York.

Hillary Clinton Invokes Dystopian Future Where Women Have No Rights In Planned Parenthood Speech
“In ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ women’s rights are gradually, slowly, stripped away,” Clinton continued, during a 17-minute speech that led to two standing ovations. “As one character says, ‘We didn’t look up from our phones until it was too late.’ It’s not too late for us. We have to encourage the millions of women and men to keep fighting.”
Clinton, who has made a series of public appearances in recent weeks, once again brought up winning the popular vote — with roughly 66 million ballots — in the election. She spoke about the causes that still mattered to her, as well as her travels abroad, where she witnessed botched illegal abortions.

FLYNN: Hillary Clinton’s Election Postmortem Shows Why They Don’t Let Corpses Perform Their Own Autopsies
On Tuesday Hillary Clinton attempted to explain why she lost on an earlier Tuesday. Instead, she just showed why she is a loser.
You see, that mix of Nurse Ratched’s personality, Mr. Burnes’ vigor, and Baron Munchausen’s honesty really makes for a winning combination. If only J. Edgar Hoover’s successor refrained from scaring people about emails she deleted and foreigners didn’t reveal how she cheated in primary presidential debates, then she’d be flying on Donald Trump’s plane now.

Clinton Whines: Putin Interfered In Election To Hurt Me…
Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, accused Donald Trump’s campaign of coordinating “with the goals of” Russian President Vladimir Putin during the presidential election.
In an onstage interview Tuesday with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Clinton said of Putin: “Well, he certainly interfered in our election and it was clear he interfered to hurt me and helped my opponent.”

A True Gentleman

Hillary is still bitching about losing.  The richest bit is where she blames “unfair treatment by the media.”

Yeah, right.

Media Research Center analysts evaluated biased statements made about the two candidates by network reporters and found:

Clinton: 184 opinionated statements = 39% positive vs. 79% negative.
Trump:  623 opinionated statements =  9% positive vs. 90% negative.

2017_05 02 Hillary still whining
It’s truly amazing to compare Hillary’s post-election behavior with the previous presidential loser, Mitt Romney.

Although he was savaged by the press, he never blamed anyone for his loss.  He just told the country to unite and went back to his life.

The Georgia Ballot

The run-off will be between Democrat Ossoff (48.1%) and Republican Handel (19.8%).

I was puzzled by this, since the district is said to be traditionally Republican.  I looked up the ballot and found there were 18 people running for that seat in Georgia yesterday.  More than half (11) were Republicans.  Five were Democrats and two were Independents.

This is the top of the ballot results.  The rest of the contenders got 0.3% or less.

2017_04 18 Georgia ballot

  • The Republican votes add up to 51%.
  • The Democrat and Independent votes add up to 49%.

Democrats are hopeful about the run-off, but it’s hardly the shoo-in one might think from the Ossoff vs. Handel numbers above.

Given Hillary’s recently whinging about misogyny, it’ll be fun to see what the Dems say if the male Democrat loses to the female Republican.

Close, But No Cigar

Well, they won another special election… almost. 30-year-old carpetbagging puppet Jon Ossoff garnered 48% of the vote in the Ga.-6th election yesterday. Since he did not overcome the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff election the liberals pissed away almost $9 million. Well, it’s only money. He will now face another contest on June 20, not against 11 republicans, but one — Karen Handel, former secretary of state who ran for senator and governor previously. It is likely the heavily republican district will coalesce around her, making her the heir to HHS Secretary Tom Price.

Jon Ossoff Finishes Below 50%, Georgia’s 6th District Heading to Runoff
In the end, Ossoff ended up pulling in less than 50%, with totals showing him at 48.6% after a huge dump of votes came in from Fulton County around midnight, leading to numerous outlets to project this as heading to a runoff. Republican Karen Handel was second at 19.5% and will be his opponent in a June runoff.
This has been a race that Democrats have been targeting since it opened up, as President Donald Trump won it by less than two points in November. Millions of dollars have been pumped into the Democratic campaign. Meanwhile, Trump has taken to Twitter to weigh in on the race in an effort to energize Republicans.

“Five Takeaways From the Georgia Special Election”

[CtH: This is from MSN, which was anti-Trump/pro-Hillary.  IOW, this is the best spin they could come up with.  ::snork::  My fave line: “A female Republican politician probably wasn’t his preferred choice for the runoff.”  No, really?]

1. This isn’t a win, and it isn’t a loss. It is a “to be continued.”
2. Ossoff will have a reasonable chance of winning in June.
3. This is not a great result for Republicans. Moral victories are a myth, but they can tell us things about other, similarly situated contests.
4. Ossoff did have unique advantages
5. It’s early. Perhaps most importantly, it is early. Despite protestations to the contrary, we don’t know where President Trump’s job approval will be in the fall of 2018.

MSNBC: Democrats grumbling about how Jon Ossoff blew millions of campaign dollars on TV ads

Democrats begin to wonder: When do we win?
For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren’t promising.

For all the anger, energy, and money swirling at the grass-roots level, Democrats didn’t manage to pick off the first two Republican-held congressional seats they contended for in the Trump era, and the prospects aren’t markedly better in the next few House races coming up: the Montana race at the end of May, and the South Carolina contest on June 20.

After that, it’ll be a further five months before the New Jersey and Virginia elections for governor, leaving some strategists and lawmakers wondering how to keep the furious rank-and-file voters engaged in fueling and funding the party’s comeback — especially given the sky-high expectations that surrounded Ossoff’s ultimately unsuccessful run at the 50-percent threshold that was necessary to win the seat outright.

The Devil Went Down to Georgia

Another Tuesday….another special election…..another pathetic display by a political party so desperate for any kind of positive news they’ll pour $10 million into a House race for a seat the republicans have held for 40 years. Tom Price was appointed HHS director by President Trump and this was his seat. After the democrats congratulated themselves by “only” losing a special election last week in Kansas by 8 points they really, really hope to win this one. It’s an open election where if no one candidate wins 51% of the vote the top two have a runoff. 80-90% of the cash poured in to this election is from outside sources. Around the webs:

Trump raises the stakes in GA special election today
Welcome to another Tuesday, another special election, and another opportunity for speculation about whether Donald Trump and Republicans are really in trouble this time. Voters in Georgia’s 6th District go to the polls today for the all-in primary that pits 18 candidates against each other to replace Tom Price, now Health and Human Services Secretary for the Trump administration. Democrats have poured over eight million dollars into the race, and have to hope that Jon Ossoff will get to 50% today to avoid the runoff:
It’s a foregone conclusion that Ossoff will win a plurality today. The Republican vote will get split among eleven candidates. Democrats hoped to get a massive turnout from their side in today’s race to get to the 50% mark, which is why so much cash has flowed into a House special election. Unfortunately for them, Ossoff hasn’t polled outside of the low 40s in the R+8 district, so that strategy required Republicans to sit at home — or to have Democrats turn out in massive numbers. In a special election, that could happen, and might catch Republicans napping.

Democrats throw millions, Hollywood punch into Georgia House race

Democrats are pumping millions into the Georgia congressional election set for Tuesday, hoping a 30-year-old political upstart who’s attracting star power can deliver a rebuke to President Trump and help the party reclaim lost momentum.

Hollywood has even come out for the off-cycle vote, with actor Samuel L. Jackson cutting a radio ad urging voters to flip the seat once held by Republican Tom Price, who is now Trump’s health secretary.

Hopeful ABC: Special Election Win Could Mean ‘Real Chance’ Dems Take Congress
The journalists on Monday’s Good Morning America excitedly predicted that a special election in April of 2017, 18 months before the midterm elections, could mean a “real chance Democrats take back Congress in 2018.” Discussing Democrat John Osoff’s chances in Tuesday’s Georgia House race, Matt Dowd enthused: “Can he win it without a runoff? If a Democrat wins that district in Georgia, there’s real chance Democrats could take back Congress in 2018.”

Heavy Funding for Dem Jon Ossoff Catches Republicans Flat-Footed in Georgia Special Election

A highly energized effort by the Democrats that has raised more than $8.9 million from around the country for thirty-year-old Jon Ossoff has caught the Republican leadership napping .
This puts the young Democrat within striking distance of the 50 percent plus one he needs to win the crowded Sixth Congressional District special election “jungle primary” in Georgia to replace Republican Tom Price, now Secretary of Health and Human Services, outright on Tuesday.

CBS Hypes Young Democrat in Georgia Primary, ‘Hopes’ Are ‘Invested’ in Him

It’s not the first time CBS had thrown its weight behind a candidate just before a close election. In the run up to the 2016 presidential election, CBS touted Clinton’s ‘Get Out the Vote’ efforts in early voted Iowa. “Early access to the polls in Iowa was not lost on the Clinton campaign today,” Pelley touted back in September. Just a few days before the 2016 election, Pelley was greatly concerned that African-Americans wouldn’t turnout in the numbers needed for Clinton to beat Trump.

Trump Enters the Fray of Georgia Special Election, Attacks ‘Super Liberal Democrat’ Ossoff

Ossoff is a former congressional staffer for Rep. Hank Johnson (D, Ga.) (YOU KNOW,THE DUMBASS WHO SAID GUAM WOULD TIP OVER IF EVERYBODY WENT TO ONE SIDE OF THE ISLAND), who once compared Jewish settlers in the West Bank to “termites.” Ossoff has touted his national security credentials on the campaign trail, initially claiming he spent five years as a national security staffer with Johnson with access to classified information. The candidate later admitted he had misrepresented his record, only working as a full-time aide for about half that time while holding a security clearance for his final five months of the job.

Putting the pedal to the metal

Voter booths

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.
