Virginia Democrats Panic

Featured image Paul has been covering the tight race between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe for Governor of Virginia. Youngkin has pulled even or ahead in some polls, and the formerly confident Democrats are beginning to panic. Now they want to change the election rules in the middle of the game: [T]he Democrat-dominated Fairfax Board of Supervisors has asked Gov. Ralph Northam to waive the witness signature requirement that Virginia »

That Fella From Down Under

Featured image “That fella from down under” is what Joe Biden called Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. But on Saturday night (Sunday in Australia), I was the fella from down under as a guest on Sky News Australia’s excellent “Outsiders” program. We covered three or four topics from American news of the day. I think it was a fun and informative segment; I hope you enjoy it: Sunday’s entire Outsiders program can »

The 2020 Election: What Really Happened?

Featured image Controversy has swirled around the 2020 election for almost a year now. What really happened? Did the Democrats steal the presidential election? And if so, how? Mollie Hemingway has been investigating issues surrounding the election since the beginning of 2021. She is one of the best and most fearless analysts and writers now working. (For just one example, see the acceptance speech that she delivered earlier this week upon being »

A new form of voter fraud in California?

Featured image Mail-in voting is fraught with the danger of fraud. The obvious danger is that ineligible voters will cast ballots or have ballots cast in their name. But now comes word from California that eligible voters are in danger of not being able to vote in person on the pretext that they have already voted. And guess what. It appears, anecdotally, that the voters who showed up to vote in the »

William Barr and the DOJ’s investigation of voter fraud in the presidential race

Featured image Politico has a report today about how then-attorney general William Barr upset career Justice Department employees by ordering the Justice Department to investigate claims of voter fraud and how the investigation he ordered “debunked” one such claim relating to Georgia. Ed Morrissey speculates about Barr’s motives in this affair. Here is my understanding of the Justice Department’s probe of election fraud claims in the period after the November 2020 election: »

Election Integrity: An Experiment

Featured image Election integrity is a critically important issue. In Minnesota, we have an administration and particularly a Secretary of State whose object seems to be maximizing opportunities for fraud. We have same-day registration, but no provisional balloting. This means people vote first, and we try to find out whether they are actually qualified after it is too late. Counties send post cards to same-day registrants who can’t verify their names and »

The trouble with Kinko’s

Featured image At Legal Insurrection Ms. Fuzzy Slippers asks “Why Is Kamala The Last Democrat Still Arguing Against Voter I.D.?” The answer to Ms. Slippers’ question has something to do with Kinko’s. According to Harris, rural voters can’t find a Kinko’s at which to copy their id’s. This is true, but that is because FedEx deep-sixed the Kinko’s name in 2008 with an accompanying $891 million charge-off (“non-cash impairment”). That was 13 »

An all-star game worth boycotting [With Comment by John]

Featured image Major League Baseball is heading into the all-star break. Next week, it will hold its home run derby on Monday and the all-star game on Tuesday. Both events, and various others, will be held in Denver, Colorado, not Atlanta, Georgia as originally scheduled. MLB pulled the game from Atlanta because the Georgia legislature passed election integrity reforms that Democrats don’t like and contend are racist. MLB thus inserted itself into »

Supreme Court delivers major blow to Dems’ campaign against state election laws

Featured image On the last day before its summer recess, the Supreme Court upheld two Arizona voting provisions that Democrats and civil rights groups challenged as disproportionately burdening minority voters. The vote was 6-3, with only the three hardcore liberals dissenting. Justice Alito wrote the opinion. That’s always a great sign. Amy Howe at Scotusblog observes that the decision “will make it more difficult to contest election regulations under the Voting Rights »

DOJ sues Georgia over its voting law

Featured image The Biden Justice Department announced yesterday that it is suing Georgia over the voting procedures the state recently adopted. The suit alleges civil rights violations under Section 2 of he Voting Rights Act. It will be prosecuted by Kristen Clarke, the racist head of the Civil Rights Division, with the help, presumably, of her brainy principal deputy, Pam Karlan. On the merits, the lawsuit is a joke. As Andy McCarthy »

Are Democrats Against Voter Fraud? It All Depends

Featured image Several weeks ago, a friend who lives in Minneapolis and is participating in the Democratic caucuses there emailed to point out that when it comes to their own election, the DFL suddenly cares about ballot integrity: Dear ____: You registered as a caucus attendee. ✅ You also confirmed your address. ✅ Now the next step of the caucus is to elect delegates from your precinct. ✅ You are joining a »

The Dems’ lies of Texas

Featured image Rich Lowry notes this inconsistency in the Democrats’ position on filibusters: In Washington, D.C., where Democrats control the White House and both chambers of Congress, the Senate filibuster is portrayed as a Jim Crow relic that is profoundly undemocratic. In Austin, Texas, where Republicans control the governor’s mansion and both chambers of the legislature, House Democrats’ walking out to prevent the passage of a bill with majority support is portrayed »

Coke to Republicans: Why can’t we all just get along?

Featured image When woke corporations started attacking Georgia over its new voting law, Coca-Cola led the charge. Its chief executive James Quincey went on television to declare the law “unacceptable.” But now, following outrage by Republicans over corporate America’s attempt to do the Democrats’ bidding on state election law issues, Coke isn’t so sure that alienating a large portion of the electorate is a good idea. Thus, as Karen Townsend observes, Coke’s »

Voters Say: Election Fraud Is a Problem

Featured image America’s CEOs may believe that election integrity is unimportant, but voters across the political spectrum disagree. Rasmussen finds that 51% of voters believe that voter fraud impacted the 2020 presidential election: A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.

Trump Wins In Michigan

Featured image I have said several times that I don’t know whether the Democrats stole the 2020 election, but I do know that they tried hard to steal it. Their efforts included relaxation of voting standards, especially relating to mail-in voting, wherever they had Democratic Secretaries of State. Typically these changes to voting procedures, not enacted by state legislatures–likely in violation of the Constitution–involved waiving a statutory requirement of witness signatures to »

Election Integrity Or Voter Suppression?

Featured image The battle over election integrity came to Minnesota today. The state’s Republican-controlled Senate passed a modest reform bill that includes provisional ballots. This is how the Senate GOP described the bill: Improvements to election security will significantly increase integrity and transparency in Minnesota elections. Minnesota is one of only three states in the nation that do not provide provisional ballots on Election Day. These ballots are for individuals who have »

Biden tries to distance himself from woke MLB decision

Featured image The White House is trying to insulate Joe Biden from Major League Baseball’s decision to take the all-star game away from Atlanta (it will be played in Denver, Colorado where, arguably, it’s a little easier to vote, legitimately and fraudulently). It’s understandable that Team Biden wants to distance the president from the decision, given the blowback it has produced, plus the poll showing that more Americans support Georgia’s election law »
