After California´s ballot
harvest: What is to be done?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/5/2018 11:16:54 AM

The ballot-harvesting issue, which gave Democrats an absolute monopoly of power in even Orange County, signals a sort of the bottom dropping out in California. Now that Democrats have discovered they can flip any race based on selective collections of mail-in ballots by Democratic door-knockers from voters who didn´t ask for them, their one-party state of the past 20 years in California has gotten even more entrenched in power. One gets the sense that the landscape has changed and what the voters want no longer matters. Voting is no longer about you,

A long slog, for sure.

Everybody in California, Republicans included, must register as a Democrat.

Then, their ballot will be picked up and delivered by the adversary. We just need to make sure that it gets counted.

This whole setup smacks of state sanctioned cheating. I know states are allowed to run their own elections according to their own laws, but when it effects offices on a national level it potentially effects us all.

The feds need to investigate this whole leftist ballot harvesting scam pronto.

Article correctly states that Dem heavy state legislators will give no support for corrective measures - hell, they´re the ones who put the chicanery in place! But to the extent elections cover Federal territory, perhaps congress can force their hand?

Shannon Brean talked just a little about this last night, but her take was that while it stinks to high heaven, it isn´t illegal. My thought, says who? How is this any different from what she thinks us illegal going on in NC? These are ballots showing up which weren´t requested just like NC and being filled out by someone other than the oerson whose name is on the envelop. Tell me, Shannon, how thus is different? Neither has any idea whose names are being checked.

In Utah it´s done differently.
The church is in charge, even tho its Mormons are not a majority of the population.
On Prop 2 (the legalization of pot) the Mormon voting orders did not hold sway at the ballot box, so step 2, the state legislators (also majority Mormon) simply over-ruled the voters and Prop 2 is gutted.

Ballot harvesting by trained Democratic Party operatives was authorized by AB 1921 signed into law in 2016. It clearly violates California Constitution Article 2 Section 7 which requires secret voting. The first step is to challenge it on those grounds.

In 2016, CA voters had a choice between 2 democrats for senator. This because voters (democrats) passed a proposition giving the two highest primary winners ballot access. All others need not apply. If this isn´t voter disenfranchisement then nothing is. If you vote republican, why go to the polls at all when there are only Dems on the ballot? Two years later, republicans need 100% of the vote to avoid losing to ballot harvesting.

#11, need to read #1, and Republicans need to get out an hire ballot harvesters too.

Imagine, if some of the churches had a ballot harvesting day or two at the church.

Here, sign this, and we´ll fill it out for you later, but make sure you make a photo copy of the ballot you´re submitting since they may want to push their vote in first, but it may also prove their possible fraud.

Also, need to have people who are canvassing the neighborhoods like the Democrats do.

The Republicans should start doing the same thing. If the Democrats complain or take their complaint to court, so be it. If the courts decide against the Republicans then the law has been established and no one can practice voter harvesting. Actions speak louder than words so the Republicans should get off their rear ends and start voter harvesting and force the democrats to do something about it. Make them plead that they are victims of the very same thing that they have been doing to overturn elections days after polls have closed and cast ballots have been counted. MAKE THEM FORCE THE JUDGES TO STOP IT BY MAKING THE PRACTICE ILLEGAL. End of story.

President Trump took a lot of flak from the left for warning that the migrant caravan, heading up to the U.S. from Honduras, had a lot of "stone cold criminals" in its ranks. Here´s a Nov. 26 report from USA Today to show just how insistent the left was with that "narrative": President Donald Trump continued his attacks against a caravan of Central American immigrants [sic] Monday, describing some of them as "stone cold criminals," but his administration provided scant details to back up the president´s assertion.

Out of the blue, socialist congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 29, has started something with outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly, calling on him to apologize for the "he-said, she-said" scrap he had a while back with Florida Democratic congresswoman Frederica Wilson over the sensitivity of an official phone call to a slain serviceman´s grieving family. Talk about a baseless argument. And talk about a useless fight she has nothing to gain from. She´s not going to get the apology she wants from Kelly, who is unlikely to have been lying, as Wilson claims,

Another day, another dead dissident over in the socialist hellhole of Venezuela. The death of Nelson Martinez in police custody made the news, because no one had ever seen such a high-level official killed off, possibly by bad medical care, which wouldn´t be surprising in a Venezuelan dungeon, or maybe a rubout from the mafia state that´s currently in power. Maybe it was both. It´s likely someone wanted him dead. Martinez had been Venezuela´s oil chief, the man at the top of state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A., which brought in 95% of the country´s

In the annals of the idiocy of France´s ruling elites, how is this for a doozy? Via ABC News: Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Monday the government could delay some payroll taxes, but expressed resistance to restoring the wealth tax or lowering taxes for retirees, among protesters´ demands. He stressed that the measures should focus on helping the working classes. "We are ready to make any gesture" that works, he said on RTL radio.

Is abortion ´the safest procedure?´ The Planned Parenthood propaganda has dined out for years on its claim that legal abortions are the preferable alternative to ´back-alley´ and ´coat-hanger´ abortions. There´s not a Democratic Party convention since 1973 where this hasn´t been shouted to the rafters. Apparently it´s not even true. Planned Parenthood is fighting with every tooth and nail it has to keep abortion reporting requirements ´safe´ from the public eye, and it´s prompting questions about just what they have to hide.

The New York Police Department is planning to introduce a new drone program in New York City and we should all be enthusiastic about this development. The NYPD has assured the city council that the drones will not be used for surveillance and police work, but I think that is exactly what they should be used for. In a city that sees hundreds of murders a year, it makes sense that all of the technology at the police department’s disposal is put to good use. After all, if the drug dealers and gang bangers

If you believe, as I do, that the U.N.´s climate agenda is really about empowering unaccountable bureaucrats to divide up the wealth of rich countries, then this information, via Andrew Bolt, is revealing: It´s a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There´s the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich: An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time.

MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers.

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former Trump

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives.
