Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sees herself as a political powerhouse. This, despite having won her congressional seat by only approximately four thousand votes, in a contest where only 11% of eligible Democrats bothered to vote. So it must come as a shock to her that backing Tiffany Caban, a Democrat Socialist, did little in the primary race for Queens District Attorney, as Melinda Katz, after a vote recount, has now been declared the winner. Caban’s platform would have been a disaster for the NYC borough of Queens; She called for the closing of Rikers Island, with no plan for other space to house prisoners. And, as reported in the NY Post, she wanted to end cash bail entirely, seek shorter sentences for...

These are the same people who melt down over the idea of a simple voter ID here at home because, they claim, it would restrict voting. When it comes to the military, however, their actual goal is to make it more difficult for our troops to vote. They have no shame, and they’re so desperate now they’re not even trying to hide their agenda. Via Washington Times. After years of accusing states of voter suppression, the Center for American Progress, citing election security, wants to make voting tougher for Americans serving overseas in the military. The left-wing public policy group issued a report Monday, “Election Security in All 50 States,” that called for stricter standards to prevent cybermeddling in elections...

Because it will “ease their transition back to society.” Or, as we call it: A craven attempt to flood the election with votes of felons and illegal aliens so that Dems gain permanent control over the country. Via Daily Mail. Convicted felons serving jail sentences in California county jails will now get to participate in an activity besides three meals a day and recreation time: votingin elections.

Did McAuliffe just compare the Civil War-era slaves to felons? Via CNS News: “Nobody should be surprised” that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe issued an executive order restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 convicted felons who have served their time, McAuliffe told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “This is something I campaigned on and I’ve been working for the restoration rights for the last two years as governor,” he said. “I have already restored the rights of 18,000 individuals, more than my past seven governors combined.”…. “And that’s why I stood in front of our capital and erased 115 years. We have had some very horrible disenfranchisement of voters in Virginia. And I stood right in front of that...

Outrageous. Whoever did this needs to be in jail. And you don’t need to be a Trump supporter to love this guy’s spirit!

This woman and her husband moved to Europe for twenty years in protest of Ronald Reagan’s election. Here’s hoping they have to pack their bags again in November 2016. Via Washington Post: ….Marione Ingram says we’re backtracking as a country. “They’re disenfranchising the poor, the elderly, blacks, Latinos, students,” she says of voter identification laws and the Supreme Court’s continued refusal to hear challenges to such restrictions. “This is, of course, how Hitler came to power, by disenfranchising voters.” Decades have passed, and “we are back to where we were,” she says of voting rights restrictions. And it’s not just access to the polls that is being taken away, she says — “We have become a country that totally dismisses...

Why in the world would the Obama Regime want to replace anyone? Didn’t Susan (“Youtube”) Rice, Jen (“Russians targeting me because of my outfits”) Psaki, Marie (“Um, can I get back to you on that?”) Harf, and the rest of ‘em, all do *fab* work? And, as the IBD notes, how about changing failed policies instead of staff?
