Washington, Madison, Jefferson are Rolling in Their Graves

What would these three say of the state of Virginia today? One writer suggest the Commonwealth just bequeath Arlington and Alexandria to Washington D.C.

from the American Spectator:

Well, we learned one thing on Election Day: Virginia is for louts. This should not stand. It cannot stand. We have a reform proposal. Don’t know why we didn’t think of it earlier.

In 1985, when we moved from our Indiana home to our nation’s capital area, Virginia was our logical destination: a low tax, right to work land of freedom abutting Democrat statism and big government to the north and east. But that was then. Three plus decades later, the swamps of DC have spilled over all of our habitat in northern Virginia. In these conditions, government has mushroomed and poisoned the commonwealth, and the corresponding demographic boom of like-minded actors and their servitors has altered the indigenous character of what was once a swell Southern state. The end result we saw on Tuesday: a state whose voting habits are now more akin to California’s than to the Virginia of our forefathers. Demography is destiny? That’s what they’d like you to think. read more

Orrin Hatch May be Next to Quit – Romney to Take his Seat

from Breitbart:

Staff for Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) are not outright denying a new report from The Atlantic magazine that Hatch, another ally of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, plans to retire at the end of his current term—another death blow for the failing Senate Majority Leader.

The headline of the latest piece in The Atlantic from McKay Coppins is: “Orrin Hatch Tells Friends He Plans to Retire.”

In the opening sentences, Coppins writes that “has privately told allies in Utah that he is planning to retire at the end of his term next year.”

Hatch’s spokesman did not outright deny the report, he just said that the McConnell ally is not willing to make his plans public yet. read more

Two RINOs Down – Don’t Let the Door Hit You

Conservatives should be encouraged by events of the last month or so. So far two RINO Republican Senators have announced that they will not seek reelection in 2018.

Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who sports a solid ‘F’ Liberty Score, announced on September 26 that he is packing it in.

For those unfamiliar, the Conservative Review “Liberty Score” is a letter grade, ranging from A to F, signifying a legislators’ conservative voting record. A is a Constitutionalist, ala Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and F is a RINO, ala too many Republicans to name.

Despite what Corker said when he first won his Senate seat – that he couldn’t imagine serving more than two terms – I believe he wouldn’t have considered retirement should Hillary have won.

As we witnessed over the last several years, it’s much easier to fake being a real Republican when a democrat is in the White House. How many ObamaCare repeal bills were passed through both Houses? It’s virtually effortless to look conservative when you know Obama will just veto every measure. read more

Trump Admits Mistake over Strange Endorsement

from iPatriot:

Alabama is in the midst of a nasty, dragging senate race that has been the recipient of an intense amount of Washington attention.

The reason for this is simple:  Alabama’s two major candidates are from polar opposite ends of the political spectrum, and the election has been seen as a referendum on how the atmosphere in the nation’s capital will shape up in the coming years.

On one side you have Luther Strange; an establishment republican with big-money ties, special interest backers, and a firm grip on what it takes to be a political elitist. read more

Let’s Eliminate the Electoral College

What a shocker. Hillary wants to dump the Electoral College because she won the popular vote. Frankly, with the recent revelations about all the election fraud, I’m not convinced she did that.

Maybe Trump Really Did Win the Popular Vote

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s say, just for fun, that you were a flight attendant. One of your jobs is to check the number of passengers vs. what’s on the flight manifest. Too few and you would chalk it up to someone missing their flight. Oh well. But what if there were too many passengers? You would figure there’s a problem.

The same might go for a cruise ship, like the Love Boat. Maybe Gopher, the ship’s purser, found a discrepancy. He discovered there was a stowaway – or maybe several more on board than the ship’s manifest indicated. Naturally you would think he would alert the authorities. Stowing away is illegal.

You know what else is illegal? Falsely registering to vote. But this, according to the left, simply isn’t happening. It was just another hyperbolic claim from our unhinged President.

However IBD, reporting on Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project, found that, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens.” You don’t say. read more

WND Exclusive – Mr. President, here’s what’s wrong with Strange

There are a lot of things to discuss this week, but the elephant in the room is North Korea and President Trump’s supposed reckless handling of the situation.

Since everyone and their cousin are giving their learned opinion on the matter, I have instead decided to concentrate on a topic I think Trump is in fact handling rather cavalierly. Some might even say ignorantly. This is his recent endorsement of RINO Republican candidate and current Alabama junior Sen. Luther Strange in the upcoming special election primary on Aug. 15.

Strange was appointed to keep the seat warm when Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general. Outsider and self-professed swamp-drainer Trump, who was elected as the “insurgent” candidate, had his choice of two other great constitutional conservative and anti-swamp candidates in Rep. Mo Brooks and Judge Roy Moore, both of whom are now running against Strange. Moore has been leading in recent polls. Both these choices are also considered to be insurgents, but Trump pulled the lever for the establishment Strange. read more

Of Course There is Voter Fraud in California

I’m not a big Trump defender, but I will when I think he’s right, or is at least on to something. Well, to this day, he ridiculed whenever he brings up massive voter cost him the popular vote. I’m beginning to think he may have been right.

from The Blaze:

Nearly a dozen Calif. counties had more registered voters than eligible voters in 2016 election

Nearly one dozen California counties had more registered voters on their voter rolls than people eligible to vote living in their county, a new Judicial Watch letter has revealed.

The conservative watchdog group sent a letter to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla on August 1 on behalf of the Election Integrity Project of California. The letter threatened to sue the Golden State if they refuse to comply with the National Voter Registration Act, which mandates voting precincts maintain the integrity of their voter rolls by taking steps to maintain their accuracy.

According to a Judicial Watch press release:

In the letter, Judicial Watch noted that public records obtained on the Election Assistance Commission’s 2016 Election Administration Voting Survey and through verbal accounts from various county agencies show 11 California counties have more registered voters than voting-age citizens: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).

Judicial Watch went on to report that officials from Los Angeles County since told the watchdog group in June that the “total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age” for that county.

“California’s voting rolls are an absolute mess that undermines the very idea of clean elections. It is urgent that California take reasonable steps to clean up its rolls,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement.
