Voter Fraud

Illegal voting and what to do about it [UPDATED]

Featured image Donald Trump says that illegal voting may have put Hillary Clinton ahead of him in the popular vote. Clinton leads Trump by around 2.5 million votes, so the president-elect’s claim seems far-fetched. However, as Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund explain in the Wall Street Journal, we simply don’t know the extent of illegal voting in American elections. Moreover, the Obama administration has done everything it can to keep it »

Analyze this

Featured image Democrats have abandoned the rule of law insofar as it deters their political advancement. In the video below, President Obama assures an aspiring illegal voter that she need not fear negative repercussions. “The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential,” he tells her. Sanctity, however, has its limits. Your vote is not so sacred that Obama would not like it to be cancelled by illegal misconduct. On the contrary, he »

Could Minnesota Voter Fraud Swing the Election to Hillary?

Featured image After I wrote a post on voter fraud in Minnesota earlier today, a frequent email correspondent wrote: Nate Silver (I think it was) just published an electoral college scenario in which Minnesota becomes the Florida of 2016, reprising 2000. Trump wins Ohio, Iowa, Nevada and Florida while retaining the Romney states…EXCEPT Utah, which votes improbably for Evan McMullen. He also wins one elector in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. That results »

Voter Fraud In Minnesota [Updated]

Featured image That’s a big topic, as Minnesota’s same-day registration scheme is notoriously subject to–in fact, invites–abuse. But a group called Minnesota Voters Alliance has brought to light another problem: substantial numbers of felons, among others, are illegally being allowed to vote, because Minnesota’s Secretary of State refuses to follow the law. Yesterday, lawsuits were commenced by three election judges: Minnesota Secretary of State and county election managers are being sued by »

Trump’s refusal to commit to “accepting” defeat — some historical perspective

Featured image Ignorance and anti-Trump bias continue to prevail in the denunciations of Donald Trump’s statement that he doesn’t know yet whether he will “accept” the result of the presidential election. For example, Michael Gerson asserts that Trump’s lack of belief in the fairness of our electoral system “is disqualifying” in a presidential candidate. Gerson notes that the fairness of our electoral system has been “hard-won through a long history of strife »

Obama Voter Fraud In Colorado

Featured image I have been working my way through the John Podesta emails that were released by Wikileaks. They provide an interesting look behind the scenes of the Hillary Clinton campaign, but generally don’t seem to contain a lot of blockbusters. This one was spotted by Breitbart. Podesta reports on a meeting with two friends of the Clintons from Colorado, at least one of whom is a lawyer. In his email, Podesta »

Rampant Voter Fraud Alleged In Minnesota

Featured image Same day registration and other liberal “reforms” have made it easy for ineligible voters to cast ballots in many states. When law-abiding citizens point out that liberal policies enable voter fraud, the left’s response is always that 1) voter fraud hardly ever happens, so 2) you must be a racist. Typically subtle liberal argumentation. Here in Minnesota, a case is pending in our Supreme Court that challenges same day registration »

A bad day for the DOJ in court; a good one for electoral integrity

Featured image Last evening, District of Columbia federal district court Judge Richard Leon issued an order denying the request by the various left-wing organizations to issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) barring the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from instructing residents of Alabama, Georgia, and Kansas that they must comply with state laws requiring proof-of-citizenship when they register to vote. Judge Leon issued this ruling even though the Justice Department, representing the »

Judge unimpressed by Obama DOJ’s dive on non-citizen voting

Featured image Earlier today, I wrote about the scheduled hearing in a case brought by several left-wing organizations to block three states from taking measures to make sure non-citizens can’t vote in the upcoming elections. The states received permission from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to proceed. The leftist outfits seek to enjoin the EAC’s order. The Justice Department is, in effect, the lawyer for the EAC. However, it has chosen »

The Obama administration takes a dive to make sure non-citizens can vote

Featured image Several left-wing organizations are fighting against efforts by states to make sure non-citizens can’t vote in the upcoming presidential elections. The leftists came up short when the federal election agency charged with resolving such matters ruled against them. But the leftist groups challenged this ruling in federal court, and the Obama-Loretta Lynch Justice Department has decided to take a dive. It is not opposing the lawsuit to enjoin the election »

Featured image The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), of which our friend Christian Adams is president, has put 141 counties on notice that they have more registered voters than people alive. These counties encompass 21 states. Michigan leads the way with 24 counties, followed by Kentucky (18) and Illinois (17). Here is the list of such counties.

Hillary relies on Republicans to be a party of cowards

Featured image Hillary Clinton has made “voting rights” the centerpiece of her presidential campaign. Christian Adams reports: In Houston, Hillary made election process rules a focus of her campaign. By process, I mean who votes, when they vote, and how they vote. While Republicans tend to focus on issues, Democrats realize that if they dominate the process of the election, the power to control the issues will follow. Process brings power. Hillary’s »

How Many Elections Will Democrats Steal Next Week?

Featured image How extensive is voter-fraud, especially among non-citizens? Just bring up the question, or suggest we need to have voter-ID at the polls like every other advanced democracy, and the answer will be instantly supplied: You’re a racist. But as Dan McLaughlin points out over at The Federalist, Democrats seem to win a suspiciously high number of close elections, well beyond what a random statistical trial would suggest. There’s a bombshell »
