Obama is Using the Russians
As an Excuse to Expand
Federal Power Over Elections

National Review, by John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 1/9/2017 6:09:10 AM

The Obama Administration is leaving office much like the way it came in — by exploiting perceived crises. “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s just-named chief of staff, told a Wall Street Journal conference of top CEOs in November 2008 while his boss was still president-elect. Since then a slew of constitutionally dubious executive orders, presidential emergencies, and rushed legislation have characterized the Obama presidency. Now he is leaving office by issuing a blizzard of “midnight regulations” and edicts. One of the most troublesome came last Friday and gave the federal government the

Two things should be standardized:

But, once the power is there, could President Trump then decree that all states must completely confirm that all names on the voter registrations are for living citizens at valid addresses, with no duplicated listings, and no current felons?

Then, once the cleanup is completed, rescind the power so the next DemonRAT pResident can´t wield the same power for mischief.

If we have centralized control of voting, you can go to bed assured that the Progressives will win 99.9% of the vote.

Today displaying a US driver´s license while registering to vote or when voting in person is absolutely not reliable to establish that the bearer of a driver´s license is actually a US citizen qualified to vote in a federal election.

Today there are over 41 million foreigners in the USA both illegally and legally, none of them are qualified to vote in federal elections. Back during the Bill Clinton era the liberal Democrat designed so-called Motor-Voter laws were passed by Congress. Those laws provide that anyone with a US driver´s license can register to vote without having to prove that they are US citizens and prohibit voter registration officials from requiring people with driver´s licenses registering to vote to provide evidence that they are actually US citizens.

Today almost any foreigner legally in the USA can obtain a US driver´s license and a number of states issue driver´s licenses to illegal aliens based upon unauthenticated foreign identification documents. California alone has issued over a million driver´s licenses to known illegal aliens.

All that is an invitation to foreigners to fraudulently vote in US elections as today nobody is looking, and especially since Obama appeared on Spanish language TV before the recent election and instructed his audience that if they are concerned about a possible Trump Administration effectively enforcing the immigration laws, that if by living in the USA, they consider themselves to be "citizens" that it is OK for them to vote and that after Hillary won that she would not allow federal law enforcement to seek them out, to arrest them and to deport them. It´s time for Congress to seriously thighen up the voter registration laws, no doubt about that!

One thousand nine hundred eighty-four years ago, the sky went dark, the earth quaked and a man died on a cross. Martin Luther said that at that moment Jesus was the greatest sinner to ever live. All the sins of the believers in the past, present and future were piled on him to such an extent the sun refused to shine on him. This Easter weekend celebrates the weekend that most historians say is the most momentous weekend in human history. Even those who do not believe Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God acknowledge that his death and resurrection

I’ve spoken to a small group of reliable, formerly high-placed intelligence officials who have dropped a few interesting tidbits on me of late. Here’s my understanding, based on the discussions: It’s not true that wiretaps and/or electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens can “only” be done with a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court order. Besides the FISA court, “wiretapping” or electronic surveillance can also be done under Title III authority. The government used this authority, for example, in the Justice Department’s secret Fast and Furious “gunwalking” case. Additionally, U.S. Presidents have the power to issue secret presidential directives that can authorize otherwise illegal

The Democrats and old-guard news media who spy a KGB agent behind every filing cabinet in President Trump´s White House are aggressively apathetic about Hillary and Bill Clinton´s decisions that gave aid and comfort to Russia. During a visit to Moscow on March 24, 2010, Hillary explained the purpose of America´s "Reset" with the Kremlin: "Our goal is to help strengthen Russia." The Clinton´s shadiest Russian deal is called Uranium One. This outrage should mushroom into Hillary and Bill´s glow-in-the-dark Whitewater. Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining mogul and major Clinton Foundation donor, led a group of investors in an enterprise called Uranium One.

Last week, we spent six or seven days gawping at Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, for their supposedly bizarre or retro marriage rules. Pence, as even villagers in Bora Bora doubtless know by now, does not attend one-on-one dinners with women other than Karen, and he does not drink alcohol in social settings when Karen is not with him. Progressives were by turns confused and disgusted. They assumed that this conveyed a primitive view of relations between men and women. Does he imagine that all women are sirens, some wondered, prone to turn an innocent dinner into an

The most dangerous moments in foreign affairs often come after a major power seeks to reassert its lost deterrence. The United States may be entering just such a perilous transitional period. Rightly or wrongly, China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and Middle East-based terrorists concluded after 2009 that the U.S. saw itself in decline and preferred a recession from world affairs. In that void, rival states were emboldened, assuming that America thought it could not -- or should not -- any longer exercise the sort of political and military leadership it had demonstrated in the past. Enemies thought the U.S. was

Do conservatives — or non-leftists, for that matter — appreciate just how terrific Donald Trump has been as president? And how lucky we are that he won the presidency? I don´t know the answer. What I do know is that they ought to be deeply appreciative of him, and deeply grateful for luck or providence, and certainly for Trump himself, that he was elected president. First, it is unlikely that any other Republican would have defeated Hillary Clinton. Second, he has not only surpassed many of our expectations but also thus far governed in a manner more consistent with conservative

HOUSTON — A witness says the driver of a pickup truck that collided with a church minibus in rural Texas, killing 13 people, acknowledged he had been texting while driving — highlighting the dangers of sending messages on smartphones while behind the wheel. Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Conrad Hein wouldn´t comment Friday on whether texting might have played a role in the Wednesday collision on a two-lane road about 75 miles west (120 km) of San Antonio, near the town of Concan.

Let me be clear: Do I think it’s possible Russia tried to influence the outcome of our elections? Absolutely. In fact, I consider it quite likely. Not because of the unsubstantiated conclusions made in the press, but because intelligence officials I trust tell me that Russia and other nations have attempted to influence our elections for decades, the same way we’ve often dabbled in influencing foreign elections. However, the disproportionate media and political attention paid to Russia’s alleged efforts in 2016—and to the Russia threat generally—smacks of politics and propaganda. For example, top former Obama intel sources tell me they consider

The Army is booting out a 13-year public affairs sergeant for including in an unclassified government email the same information about a special operations unit and Osama bin Laden found on Army.mil web pages. The irony in the narrative of Staff Sgt. Ricardo Branch is that his motive was to keep classified material away from public view. His disclosure in a private Army email is also the same information as told by his commander in chief, Barack Obama, in May 2011 when the president visited Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to personally thank the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), or “Night Stalkers,” for

NOGALES, Mexico—In the 35 years Gilda and Juan Francisco Loureiro have been running a shelter in northern Mexico for undocumented immigrants, they’ve never seen a week like this one. The shelter, called Albergue San Juan Bosco, is perched on a steep hillside looking over the busy border town of Nogales, Mexico. Its walls are painted bright turquoise and tangerine, and its wide-open double doors look west over low hills and Highway 15. Since they opened it, upward of 1 million people have slept there on their way to the U.S. But on the day I visited, it was almost empty. It didn’t

Engineers on California’s high-speed rail project have worried for nine years about the sort of train wreck that occurred in New York last October. (Snip) One safety concern playing out at the moment stems from the fact that the bullet trains will run in some places at 220 mph, alongside lines carrying everything from toxic chemicals to military tanks. Everyone agrees barriers are needed to keep debris from derailed freight trains from smashing into the fast-moving passenger cars. But for years freight train operators and the California High-Speed Rail Authority could not agree on their exact design.
