Republican answers 'call of duty' with Biden election job

  Republican answers 'call of duty' with Biden election job OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state's Secretary of State Kim Wyman is the last statewide-elected Republican on the West Coast and as she readies for a new election security job in the Biden administration she says she'll approach it with her core philosophy: "Party politics aren’t as important as our country’s elections.” Wyman, who battled misinformation from some within her own party during the 2020 election, will serve as the election security lead for the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the agency responsible for safeguarding U.S. elections.

Approximately 808,000 "non-citizens" may vote in future New York City elections, if the City Council welcomes them to do so, as early as December. These potential new members of the electorate would include green card holders and those with certain work permits.

This is a rotten idea. However, love or hate it, everyone at least should debate this concept with maximum precision.

These 808,000 potential new voters are not non-citizens. The computer on which I write these words is a non-citizen. So is the medium via which you are reading them right now.


More than a year after Donald Trump's loss, Wisconsin Republicans are waging a relentless attack on the state's election commission

  More than a year after Donald Trump's loss, Wisconsin Republicans are waging a relentless attack on the state's election commission Threats of felony charges and talk of a Republican takeover of the election system point to political warfare in Wisconsin, a key political battleground.Republicans in Wisconsin are engaging in a multi-pronged attack on the state's bipartisan election commission -- in one of the latest efforts to relitigate the 2020 election in a key presidential battleground state.

Rather than non-citizens, these people are foreign citizens. While they are not American citizens, they remain citizens of the foreign nations from whence they came – Mexico, Haiti, Russia, Singapore, New Zealand, and dozens more.

Every human is a citizen of some country. A human non-citizen is not a thing.

So, pro or con, all discussions of this brainstorm should reflect what’s at stake:

The New York City Council aims to dilute the local votes of American citizens by extending the franchise to 808,000 foreign citizens. This would include letting approximately 117,500 citizens of communist China select the mayors, City Council members, district attorneys, and other officials of America’s most-populous municipality.

The Squad Gets Love From the Left—and Anger From Voters

  The Squad Gets Love From the Left—and Anger From Voters The passage of President Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion social welfare spending bill in the House was a much-needed win for Democrats. But for six progressive lawmakers who were willing to block the other half of Biden’s agenda in order to secure the rest of it, the victory was especially sweet. After the Build Back Better Act passed Friday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said the vote to approve the historic package of investments fighting climate change and expanding the social safety net was “why we even run and serve in Congress, to pass legislation like this that impacts people’s everyday lives, to transform our material reality.

There really is no bottom to the depravity and evil of the Democrat Party, most of whose local members cheer this proposal. But astonishingly, and to his rare credit, Gotham’s far-Left Mayor Bill de Blasio, is not among them.

"I do have reservations," de Blasio said on Tuesday. "So, I understand if folks say, 'Hey, I'm somewhere on the path toward citizenship.' But I also have feelings about citizenship and the value of citizenship and wanting to encourage people to become citizens, fully." De Blasio also argues that this matter should be decided by the state legislature, not the City Council. A left-wing idea must be truly wretched not to enjoy de Blasio’s support.

Conversely, New York’s mayor-elect, Eric Adams, backs giving foreign citizens the vote. This position T-bones at 100 mph into the widespread view that Adams is a moderate-to-conservative Democrat. Does this exception prove the rule or is it an ominous preview of horrors to come? As a certain former president loves to say: We’ll see what happens.

Venezuela opposition says it must rebuild after heavy election loss

  Venezuela opposition says it must rebuild after heavy election loss Venezuela opposition says it must rebuild after heavy election lossCARACAS (Reuters) -Venezuela's opposition needs to rebuild and reflect on its strategy after suffering a heavy defeat in regional elections at the weekend, its leader Juan Guaido said on Monday, calling for unity among the fragmented movement's leadership.

This wacky idea extends beyond Gotham. Left-wing politicians already empowered foreign citizens to vote for San Francisco school board and in local races in two Vermont cities and 11 Maryland communities.

And if foreigners may vote for school board and sheriff, why not state senator and governor?


What the left wants is more. Why not let green card holders vote in state elections? If this sounds too crazy to contemplate, remember how they all laughed at the Green New Deal, when Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled it in 2019? NOT GONNA HAPPEN, the smart set chuckled.

Well, President Joe Biden just signed huge chunks of the Green New Deal into law last week via his $1.2 trillion so-called infrastructure bill. Today’s madcap left-wing fantasy is tomorrow’s statute.

Similarly, if green card holders can vote in city – and perhaps state – elections, then who will tell illegal aliens that they cannot pick the leaders who make the rules for them, their families, friends and neighbors? Why not simply hand ballots to all adults (or maybe minors over age 16) who can reach their local precincts – or complete absentee ballots at home? Illegal aliens now get free health care, free education and free plane tickets to their destinations of choice. Why not give them ballots, too? Insane? Give it a few years.

And, of course, a President Pete Buttigieg would give illegal aliens free Uber rides to the polls.

For now, the distinction between "non-citizens" and "foreign citizens" voting in U.S. elections is bigger than it sounds. Using the latter expression describes this dreadful idea accurately and exposes its immorality and outrageousness – before things decay even further.


GOP targets Wisconsin elections system, nonpartisan director .
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans are working to discredit the bipartisan system they created to run elections in the state after President Joe Biden narrowly won last year's presidential race, making the political battleground the latest front in the national push by the GOP to exert more control over elections. Wednesday will bring a flurry of election-related developments in the state, with both the Wisconsin Elections Commission and a partisan legislative panel dissecting the 2020 presidential election.
