What is ´Ballot Harvesting,´ and How Did
California Dems Use It to Nuke the GOP?

Daily Caller, by Scott Morefield

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/2/2018 5:15:25 AM

As the polls closed on election day last month, six California Republican House candidates, including Representatives Dana Rohrabacher, Steve Knight, and Mimi Walters, were ahead in their respective races. However, as the absentee and provisional ballots rolled in over the intervening weeks, all six lost to their Democratic opponents. The case of Korean-American GOP candidate Young Kim was one of the most prominent examples. On election night, Kim held an 8,000 vote lead over her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros, and even attended freshman orientation in Washington, D.C. before watching her lead, and her victory, slowly evaporate over the subsequent weeks.

Every vote in California should be thrown out. In fact they should be thrown out of the USA

Ballot harvesting = ballot box stuffing.

When the polls close, they are CLOSED! Only ballots in the box should be counted, and that’s FINAL!

Why have any LAWS at all?

The demonrat socialists allowance of ballots AFTER THE FACT means that from now on, elections are invalidated if you are not a demonrat.

Nullifying elections after the votes have been counted is ILLEGAL and means that those who voted have lost their right to participate and the the the whole process is just a joke.

So much about a just government being limited by the vote of "those governed".

Ballot "harvesting" indeed.

FTA "Before its passage, a group opposed to the bill wrote: “AB 1921 would allow anybody to walk into an elections office and hand over truckloads of vote by mail envelopes with ballots inside, no questions asked, no verified records kept. It amounts to an open invitation to large-scale vote buying, voter coercion, “granny farming”, and automated forgery. AB 1921 solves no problem that a simple stamp can’t solve.”"

The solution is simple require all mail in or absentee ballots must be counted and certified before the date of the election except for military ballots. Right now election night results are meaningless. Ballot harvesting gives Democrats weeks even months to continue counting ballots knowing the number needed until they win and then the counting stops. Pathetic Republicans just helplessly watch. Wonder how many illegals used their California drivers license to vote? Although the Cali licenses have language on them indicating that the card is for driving purposes only and may not be used for identification. My guess that is ignored. Democrats have perfected voting fraud to be used in the swing states in 2020 to guarantee a win in the Presidential election! What will Republicans do? Nothing their hatred of President Trump precludes any real push back on voter fraud. Pray to God I´m wrong.

California is controlled by Communist democrats.

Their reward will be paid in full when the communist democrats get total control of 2/3rds of all states governments along with the federal government. That is when they will initiate the removal of about 55% of all Americans who oppose living under a Communist tyranny of America and the world. The One World Government of Communism will take control of the world and about 55% of the opposition in the remainder of the worlds population will be removed.

Paul Ryan’s comments about him being completely ignorant about so-called “ballot harvesting” just shows how stupid the Republican leadership really is. If the California Republican Party had any smarts at all, after the Democrats passed their “ballot harvesting” legislation, the California Republicans should have found some street smart people to analyze that new law and tell them what adverse impacts that they would suffer from such a law. Common sense will tell you that the California Democrats never would have passed such a law that in reality allows outright fraud, if they ever thought that it would benefit the Republicans.

State Department email records show that environmental activists who have denied operating as foreign agents in response to congressional inquiries partnered with Obama administration officials to advance climate change policies that were beneficial to China and detrimental to the United States, according to energy policy analysts and attorneys who have reviewed the electronic correspondence. The World Resources Institute, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit devoted to curtailing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainable development, was one of several environmental advocacy groups that received letters from the House Natural Resources Committee in 2018 inquiring about their relationship with China´s government and the impact

A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff.

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
