Voter Fraud
For people that are so obsessed with "election integrity," the Left sure seems oppose to a simple investigation into that exact question...

Trump expresses his confidence in the voter fraud commission and states that they will continue to find the “full truth.”

President Trump met with the voter fraud commission this Wednesday and emphasized on the importance of the commission to fight the dangers of voter fraud.

“Every time voter fraud occurs, it cancels out the vote of a lawful citizen and undermines democracy,” Trump stated in his meeting. “Can’t let that happen. Any form of illegal or fraudulent voting, whether by noncitizens or the deceased, and any form of voter suppression or intimidation must be stopped,” he added.

The country is left with “no choice” but to investigate the election process in order to “make America great again.” He called out on stated that were refusing to hand over information of voters and argued that “If any state does not want to share this information, one has to wonder, what they are worried about?” And added, “there’s something, there always is.”

Last month Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and vice chairman of the commission sent out a letter to all states requesting them to provide data such as Social Security numbers, party affiliations and voting records dating to ten years back, for each voter registered in each state. “It is crucial for the commission to consider your input as it collects data and identifies areas of opportunity to increase the integrity of our election systems,” Kobach wrote. However, the request was not well received by some of the states, as the state of Arizona and many other states refused to comply. Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan wrote back, “I share the concerns of many Arizona citizens that the Commission’s request implicates serious privacy concerns.”

“Since there is nothing in Executive Order 13799 (nor federal law) that gives the Commission authority to unilaterally acquire and disseminate such sensitive information, the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office is not in a position to fulfill your request,” she added.

Trump argued that the subject of voter fraud is something that is an “American issue” and that “We have to protect the integrity of the vote and our voters. This is not a Democrat or a Republican issue. It’s an American issue. It’s about the concern of so many Americans that improper voting has taken place and [is] cancelling out the votes of lawful American citizens,” Trump stated.

While, President Trump and his “election integrity” commission is looking into ways to better protect the ballot boxes and to protect the country from encountering voter fraud in the future, the Democrats argue back stating that Trump is only looking for proof to his claims that millions of votes very illegally casted in the 2016 presidential elections. They argued that although Trump won, but he did however lose popular vote his Democrat contestant Hillary Clinton.

Pence, who was also present in the meeting highlighted the bipatisian nature of the commission and stated, “This bipartisan group will perform a truly nonpartisan service to the American people.” he said.

“This commission has no preconceived notion or preordained results. We are fact finders,” he added.

Trump Tower
How much longer will Trump tower over all this Russia controversy?

The controversial meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya remained in the news over the weekend. The story, it seems, will retain the spotlight as lawmakers from both parties continue to argue about the meeting’s implications and new details keep emerging from various news sources.

One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers appeared on all five major news channels to present his defense, claiming that the president had absolutely no idea about the meeting, he also rejected the notion that the meeting violated laws.

However, the Senate Intelligence Committee’s vice chairman, Mark Warner, believes that the recent revelations regarding the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya will force the committee to take the Russian investigation to a whole new level.

The meeting, which took place back in June 2016, included Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya, Trump Jr., the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and then campaign manager Paul Manafort.

After The New York Times first reported about the meeting just last weekend, several new details have emerged. Donald Trump Jr. went as far as to publish his email correspondence with Rob Goldstone, a music publicist and the intermediary between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya.

While the White House maintains its stance that the Trump campaign did not coordinate with Moscow during the elections in any way, several lawmakers and investigation authorities have begun questioning the June 2016 meeting.

“Nothing in that meeting that would have taken place even if it was about the topic of an opposition research paper from the Russian lawyer is illegal or a violation of the law,” Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said on “Fox News Sunday.”

However, Senator Mark Warner (D – Va.), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, had some serious questions about Trump Jr.’s meeting, saying he wanted to hear everyone’s side of the story.

He claimed he found it very difficult to believe that Trump wasn’t told about the meeting during the elections.

“It’s a little unbelievable that neither the son nor the son-in-law ever shared that information with their dad, the candidate,” Warner said.

Trump’s attorney has also emphasized on the fact that the president had no knowledge of the meeting until recently.

“The level of credibility from the senior levels of this administration really is suspect, and I think suspect regardless of what political party you belong to,” Warner added.

“This is the first time that the public has seen in black and white on the email thread clear evidence that the Russians — and particularly there was a Russian government effort to try to undermine [Hillary] Clinton, help Trump,” Warner said on “Face The Nation,” on CBS.

“And what was remarkable was you saw not only willingness but actually glee from the president’s son as well as involvement of the campaign manager and the president’s son-in-law to say in effect, ‘Yes, bring it on.'”

According to Warner, Trump Jr. hasn’t been very honest about the meeting, saying that he’s changed his story numerous times in a week since the story broke out. The president’s eldest son took to twitter on Tuesday, to release a series of emails between him and the intermediary, before the meeting.

Warner further said he wanted to talk to more people who were involved in the meeting. “I think we may find out there may have been other meetings as well,” he said. “We don’t know that yet. But what we’ve seen is a constant effort to hide contacts with Russians.”

Trump’s lawyer, talking to CBS’ Face The Nation, denied claims that Trump knew anything about the meeting.

“He said he has had no meetings, was aware of no meetings with Russians, was not aware of this one until really right before it all broke,” he said.

But Warner says this meeting aligns perfectly with the allegations that the campaign has attempted to cover up its contacts with the Russians.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Cali) while speaking on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, said that he thinks people can’t rely on Trump Jr. word.

“We can’t accept anything Don Jr. says, and of course, and we can’t accept much the president says about this either, because he has a similar record of not being forthcoming when it comes to Russia,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

Several investigations are looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race.

Grave Vote
You know those brainless, shuffling hordes, that destroy everything they touch... Zombies? No, I was talking about liberals!

Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and an employee of Harrisonburg Votes is sent off to prison for registering deceased voters in favor of the Democrats, in the 2016 presidential race.

It was in May that President Donald Trump signed an executive order to set up a commission to identify voter fraud.

“Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers,” the spokesperson continued. “The registrar’s office learned that the individuals named in these forms had not, in fact, submitted the new voter registrations.”

A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney reported to local news, “In July 2016, Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and report to Democratic campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg.”

“In August 2016, Spieles was directed to combine his registration numbers with those of another individual because their respective territories overlapped. After filling out a registration form for a voter,” the spokesperson continued, “Spieles entered the information into a computer system used by the Virginia Democratic Party to track information such as name, age, address, and political affiliation. Every Thursday an employee [or] volunteer hand-delivered the paper copies of the registration forms to the registrar’s office in Harrisonburg, “he added.

That discovery led the registrar’s office to unearth “multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations,” the U.S. attorney’s office spokesperson explained.

Spieles has plead guilty and has confessed to have stolen information from the Virginia Democratic Party’s “walk sheets,” to carry out his malicious actions.

"I sure hope this Nigerian prince makes it to the US ok, I'm looking forward to enjoying my millions..."

On Monday, Rush Limbaugh shared a theory that former President Barack Obama may have chosen not to do anything about Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections for a very peculiar reason: he simply didn’t want Hillary Clinton to become the president.

“People had that theory bandied about before the election,” Rush said, while talking on his radio show.

Limbaugh explained his theory step by step, talking about how the former president’s decision to not take any action may have impacted the elections.

“Bottom line, Obama hears about all of these efforts and the brave struggle to contain it begins, and Obama meets with experts and advisers. They advise him what to do. Obama gives his own counsel,” Limbaugh explained. “At the end of it all Obama decided to do nothing other than call Putin and say ‘cut it out,’ an act of bravery and courage unlike most other in American history. And after telling Putin to cut it out, he then confronted Putin again in China and said, ‘Stop it or else.’ Putin and the Russians quaking away, cowering in laughter at the bravery and courage of Barack Hussein O.”

According to Limbaugh, the Obama administration had a very good idea of what was going on with the alleged Russian interference, from August to November of last year. However, he did absolutely nothing to stop it.

Limbaugh furthered his talk, “Obama didn’t choke. He thought Hillary was gonna win! Trump’s exactly right about this. He thought Hillary was gonna win.”

He later added, “Folks, let’s play this out: what if there is another possibility here explaining why Obama didn’t do anything?”

“What if, as the story says, Putin was trying to elect Trump — again, I, on the record think this is bogus, but that’s what the story said — what if Obama knew Putin was trying to elect Trump and didn’t do anything to stop the Russians because he really didn’t want Hillary to win?”

He then said, “This story says Obama was scared to death it could be done, worried very seriously it was being done and decided to do nothing about it. So people are livid at Obama on the left, and that’s gonna be a larger theme going forward as this massive story gets digested by more and more people. But as it gets digested and as more and more people read it and absorb it, it’s going to also be seen for what it is: a giant, big batch of nothing where Trump is concerned. Big batch of nothing.”

Rheems, Pa, United States - October 6, 2016: US House Speaker Paul Ryan speaks at a campaign stop for Lloyd Smucker, Republican candidate for US Representative.

The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan just made a move against Trump that proves why Republicans are so tired of the Republican Party.

Paul Ryan has no backbone.

After the 11-year-old video surfaced last week where Trump said some pretty awful things, Paul Ryan decided to try and distance himself from Trump.

Paul Ryan said that he would no longer defend Trump, because of his comments.

The comments were bad, but why abandon ship? Why try and rip the party apart as the election winds down these final weeks?

Believe it or not, Mike Huckabee has a pretty good theory.

Huckabee on Fox News said that Ryan “isn’t afraid that Trump will lose, he is afraid Trump will win.”

If Trump wins, he will change the dynamics in Washington. The establishment Republicans that fought with everything they had to stop the Donald will be the ones that will have to face him as president. Their power will be limited.

Trump will support the people that have supported him from the beginning.

Paul Ryan is trying to take the moral high road, but now he has painted himself into a corner.

If Hillary wins, the Democrats will do everything they can to limit Republican power and if they win the House too, then Ryan almost become irrelevant and will lose his speakership.

Ryan has a lot on the line with this election and the establishment Republicans are starting to panic now that they think Trump might actually win, but did he make the right move?

Golden sunset at a desert. Dry and thirsty soil.

This election is taking our country down a dangerous road and things are going to get worse before they get better, no matter who wins.

Over the weekend we learned what Donald Trump’s “locker room talk” sounds like.

We learned that Hillary admitted to having a “public stance and a private stance” in one of her leaked speeches where she was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to talk to massive global companies.

We saw Donald Trump parade Bill Clinton’s group of self-professed victims before and during the debate.

America learned too that Hillary’s campaign manager admits she lies often and that her health records are something that he doesn’t want released.

We learned that Hillary wants to go after guns with executive order.

It doesn’t matter if you are voting for Hillary, Trump, Johnson, Stein or staying home, it is hard to argue that this election is vicious and embarrassing.

There will be no winner on November 8th. There will only be losers.

If Trump loses he will say the he was cheated, and he might actually be right, but it will not end well.

If Hillary wins, we all lose because it is clear she would be the least transparent president in history and with her known corruption and her careless behavior toward classified material we will all be put in danger.

If Trump wins, what will happen if Kim Jung Un makes fun of his little hands? Will he blow his top and fire a nuke?

The hate towards each side in this election is tearing families apart and causing chaos on Facebook and Twitter.

People are de-friending people they have known their whole lives because they disagree on politics.

Our country is more divided now than anytime in recent history, and over a variety of issues.

At this point, it is only going to get worse as we move towards Election Day. More things will come out and it will only make this election more embarrassing; if that is even possible.
