After California´s ballot
harvest: What is to be done?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/5/2018 11:16:54 AM

The ballot-harvesting issue, which gave Democrats an absolute monopoly of power in even Orange County, signals a sort of the bottom dropping out in California. Now that Democrats have discovered they can flip any race based on selective collections of mail-in ballots by Democratic door-knockers from voters who didn´t ask for them, their one-party state of the past 20 years in California has gotten even more entrenched in power. One gets the sense that the landscape has changed and what the voters want no longer matters. Voting is no longer about you,

Comments:
A long slog, for sure.

Everybody in California, Republicans included, must register as a Democrat.

Then, their ballot will be picked up and delivered by the adversary. We just need to make sure that it gets counted.

This whole setup smacks of state sanctioned cheating. I know states are allowed to run their own elections according to their own laws, but when it effects offices on a national level it potentially effects us all.

The feds need to investigate this whole leftist ballot harvesting scam pronto.

Article correctly states that Dem heavy state legislators will give no support for corrective measures - hell, they´re the ones who put the chicanery in place! But to the extent elections cover Federal territory, perhaps congress can force their hand?

Shannon Brean talked just a little about this last night, but her take was that while it stinks to high heaven, it isn´t illegal. My thought, says who? How is this any different from what she thinks us illegal going on in NC? These are ballots showing up which weren´t requested just like NC and being filled out by someone other than the oerson whose name is on the envelop. Tell me, Shannon, how thus is different? Neither has any idea whose names are being checked.

In Utah it´s done differently.
The church is in charge, even tho its Mormons are not a majority of the population.
On Prop 2 (the legalization of pot) the Mormon voting orders did not hold sway at the ballot box, so step 2, the state legislators (also majority Mormon) simply over-ruled the voters and Prop 2 is gutted.

Ballot harvesting by trained Democratic Party operatives was authorized by AB 1921 signed into law in 2016. It clearly violates California Constitution Article 2 Section 7 which requires secret voting. The first step is to challenge it on those grounds.

In 2016, CA voters had a choice between 2 democrats for senator. This because voters (democrats) passed a proposition giving the two highest primary winners ballot access. All others need not apply. If this isn´t voter disenfranchisement then nothing is. If you vote republican, why go to the polls at all when there are only Dems on the ballot? Two years later, republicans need 100% of the vote to avoid losing to ballot harvesting.

#11, need to read #1, and Republicans need to get out an hire ballot harvesters too.

Imagine, if some of the churches had a ballot harvesting day or two at the church.

Here, sign this, and we´ll fill it out for you later, but make sure you make a photo copy of the ballot you´re submitting since they may want to push their vote in first, but it may also prove their possible fraud.

Also, need to have people who are canvassing the neighborhoods like the Democrats do.

The Republicans should start doing the same thing. If the Democrats complain or take their complaint to court, so be it. If the courts decide against the Republicans then the law has been established and no one can practice voter harvesting. Actions speak louder than words so the Republicans should get off their rear ends and start voter harvesting and force the democrats to do something about it. Make them plead that they are victims of the very same thing that they have been doing to overturn elections days after polls have closed and cast ballots have been counted. MAKE THEM FORCE THE JUDGES TO STOP IT BY MAKING THE PRACTICE ILLEGAL. End of story.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lived up to her "cut your head off and you won´t even know you´re bleeding" characterization from her own daughter in the upcoming border deal, and not just for Republicans. It´s not just that the badly needed funds for a border wall were slashed to a mere $1 billion. (As a means of comparison, the earlier California bullet train got $77 billion allotted for its construction, with an easy $3 billion of that from the feds). Actually, the DACA kids got nothing.

The unfitness of Rep. Ilhan Omar for the House Foreign Affairs Committee has already been brought up based on her persistent anti-Semitism, her strange habit of repeating Russian propaganda, and her apparent abuse of U.S. immigration law. Now a new and very big reason has come up: Her cringe-inducing ignorance of actual foreign affairs. In a hearing on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Omar got her big moment to show her foreign policy chops, and started in by misstating the actual name of the State Department´s grizzled old special envoy for Venezuela, the well-known Elliott Abrams,

There´s nothing quite like handing Democrats What They Want. So to accommodate them, wily old Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote on freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her sidekick Sen. Ed Markey´s much-vaunted "Green New Deal," just to help them out. But wait. The Senate lefties are not happy about it.

President Ronald Reagan once said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn´t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children´s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." Perhaps now, more than at any other time recently, these words must be heeded. The foundation of American values and freedom is under assault.

Democrats have always spoken with forked tongues on assorted #MeToo cases, calling for swift judgment on accused (and innocent) conservatives such as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while dragging their feet on allegations involving their own. John Conyers, Keith Ellison, Al Franken, Bob Menendez - they all have had their #MeToo issues, as does the Virginia clown show crew, yet somehow Democrats aren´t quite treated the way Republicans are. And it´s really obvious in the case of California Rep. Tony Cardenas, who´s been credibly accused of drugging and molesting a teenage girl in his care

In 1920 British writer H.G. Wells visited Russia and interviewed Vladimir Lenin in the Kremlin, where they discussed the future of socialist Russia. In the aftermath of his visit, Wells wrote an insightful book, Russia in the Shadows, in which he called Lenin “The Kremlin Dreamer.” One hundred years later a major American political party of Kremlin dreamers is recycling the familiar Marxist arguments against capitalism and pointedly spinning Lenin’s fairy tales here in the United States.

President Trump visited the Texas border city of El Paso to make a case for his border wall, and press pooh-poohing to the contrary, it was big. Real big. The press fell over itself to downplay claims about the actual crowd size, but 16,000 people, if the numbers were as low as that, is still an amazing number, respect-inducing numbers, particularly in a blue city like El Paso. If this trip was Trump´s kickoff to his 2020 presidential re-election run, the Democratic clown car of candidates getting all the press these days has something to worry about,

CARACAS, Venezuela — Since the eruption of protests against President Nicolás Maduro last month, Flor Blanco, a 57-year-old seamstress, has repeatedly clashed with her husband over a question at the core of the crisis here: Did socialism kill Venezuela? Blessed with the world’s largest oil reserves, this South American nation was once the region’s richest per capita. Twenty years after the launch of the late Hugo Chávez’s Bolivarian Revolution, it is now one of the poorest. Blanco’s husband, a loyalist of Maduro — Chavez’s anointed successor — still calls socialism society’s great equalizer

For years, Democrats have fallen over themselves to defend Latin American communist dictatorships. Who can forget Rep. Maxine Waters´s apology to the Castro regime for the U.S. on her pilgrimage to Cuba or Rep. Jim McGovern´s secret collaborations with Colombia´s Marxist FARC terrorists or New York mayor Bill de Blasio´s "help" to the Nicaraguan Sandinistas or Sen. Bernie Sanders´s open praise for Hugo Chávez´s Venezuela? And don´t forget Joe Kennedy´s Dial Joe-4-Oil, which was a gusher of propaganda praise for Venezuela´s oppressive socialist regime. They´ve always gotten away with it. Until now.

MIAMI — For 60 years, the lifeblood of Miami’s idiosyncratic politics has been Cuba, the communist government’s countless sins denounced in street protests, dissected on the spirited Spanish-language airwaves and condemned at campaign rallies under the unifying cry of “Viva Cuba Libre!” But the focus of this city’s freedom-loving fervor has recently moved further south. Venezuela, not Cuba, now dominates Miami’s political conversation. A television anchor not long ago ended a somber segment with a promise to keep praying for the troubled South American country.

Gallup put out a poll last week, finding that five million Latin Americans plan to cross into the U.S. this year alone. And the total number who plan to enter the U.S., either this year, or later, is 42 million. The U.S. admits a million legal immigrants each year from all countries. This new survey shows that at least four million of that five million are planning to enter illegally, most likely by crossing the border. That´s a human tide.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. 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.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. 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.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. 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.
