Original Article

New York State Senate Democrats have advanced a plan that will automatically register to vote all residents who apply for a driver’s licenses — which now includes non-citizens and illegal aliens — unless they “opt-out.”On Thursday, Senate Senate Democrats passed legislation that will automatically register all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs). As of this year, illegal aliens are able to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the “opt-out” box before applying for a license.New York Democrats pitched the legislation as an effort

This is really really serious. Where are the Never-Trump Republicans in New York? Where are any Republicans in New York? Is there any reason why someone can't do something about this. Otherwise, coast to coast. California and New York disintegrating before our eyes.

If New York and California want to register earthworms to vote, it won't matter because they have only so many electoral votes and they all go to the dem anyway. The reason to resist this is the "camel's nose under the tent problem. The principle is illegal and we don't want it to spread. This was exactly what we expected. First, give illegals driver's licenses and then give everyone with a driver's license a vote. A perfect example of slimey "Progressive" tactics.

This has been their strategy all along for "fundamentally transforming America." Also explains why they desperately want to keep the borders open. They're flooding the country with undocumented Democrats.

Democrats should not EVER be in charge of government, city, county, state, and national! They have zero regard for constitutionally established laws, making their own arbitrary rulings, according to their own political whims. They shamelessly defy all conventions that are emplaced to assure the continued well-being of this country’s legal citizens of all ages, gender (two), and race. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is in danger of disappearing forever unless we actually are forced to take up arms to defend our way of life and our future generations!

How can we continue to have article after article written regarding this assault on our elections and no one does anything about securing the votes for legal citizens? It is appalling! Why doesn’t someone file a lawsuit and take this illegal action to Court? Does no one have any standing to take such action? I am infuriated that the democrats can take anything to court and get a ruling but we sit on our backsides and let this go on? We cannot allow these illegals to vote themselves more benefits from the government by way of voting for democrats. No one should vote unless they are a legally registered citizen. Please wake up the leadership of the Republican Party and start a campaign to end this travesty. We could at least make noise about this and the adverse ramifications of allowing illegals to vote in our elections. This is madness. What other nation allows such foolishness. This must end.

I hope nobody's bubble was burst to find out the democrats aren't actually against election fraud. All the BS about Russia ha. They only stand for power, everything else is subservient. And they lecture the rest of us on morality from the only high ground they can gain, a pile of dead babies. Wouldn't every one of us have standing in a suit based on the incremental loss of voting rights represented by every illegal vote?

Obviously, these states think it's the only way they can beat Trump. But, I think Trump should come out, a week before the Election and have huge signs posted everywhere, including at the voting booths, IF you vote and you and not a citizen of this country, you will go to jail and then be deported. Might give them some food for thought! Write it in Spanish!

Michigan requires that Social Security verifies your identity, that you renew in person every other time, and that you present a SS card or 1099, and a marriage license (if your name changed due to, say, marriage), and that you have other ID, like a passport or state issued card. Last time my wife renewed, she had to take in her birth certificate, marriage license and passport. I've worked elections. They have a good system IF the people running the polling station are not all in cahoots. Then it is still possible to stuff the ballot box.

New York already votes Democrat for President. New York already votes Democrat for its two Senators. This move is design to flip all Congressional districts to Democrat, and all New York State Senate and Congressional districts to Democrat. Trump will fight it. Don't know if he will win. Maybe the Supreme Court can block this. New York courts won't. What will New York Republican officials do? NOTHING. What will New York Republican voters do? MOVE.

Most illegals don't want to register for fear they will get caught and have to pay more taxes. At least that's the way it is in New Mexico. Even those who are on a payroll don't care to get their name out there. They prefer to be anonymity. The Trump campaign should tout to not trust anything the Democrats tell you. How about a photo of them up and say...Can you trust these people?

Illegal does NOT mean "sick bird." It means that what you are doing is against the law you lowlife dimwits. You can elect your own room-temperature IQ criminals however it pleases you but when it starts to affect other states there WILL be resistance, and I don't mean dancing and howling in the streets.

Social Security can be used to cross verify citizenship status if they didn't give that to illegals too. Our favorite Community Organizer in Chief had three SS numbers and I'm sure he used them to great advantage. He went from being a nobody to a nobody who occupied the Oval Office for eight years, now collects a $450K salary for life and owns an estate on Martha's Vineyard. Judging from his lack of talent and intelligence he didn't earn any of it except through lies, fraud and deception.

What New York does in certifying voters is a national, thus Federal issue, that affects us all and therefore we should all be offended. It's hands down cheating, even though the dumb democrats are just doubling down on already being a very consistent blue state. The Feds should retaliate by withdrawing Federal funds on something that the state desperately needs and depends on.

The long-term leftist and liberal Democrat political agenda on immigration, both illegal and legal, for a longtime, has been to flood the USA with as many poor, uneducated, unskilled, and socialist oriented foreign born people as possible. The ultimate Democrat objective is to turn those foreigners into Democrat socialist voters in huge numbers, thus permanently changing the voter demographics of the USA to their favor, by overwhelming what the Democrats refer to as being the Deplorable Republican vote in enough areas of the USA to make it numerically impossible for the Republicans to win future Presidential elections or to control the Congress. That’s one of the ways the Democrat socialists plan to transform the USA into a socialist utopia. That is clear to see from the manner that the Democrats have been acting in opposing all of President’s Trump’s efforts to secure America’s borders and to effectively enforce the immigration laws.

Voter fraud is the reason taking back the House will be very difficult. Illegals count in the census for redistribution. The RNC has lots of our donations and should litigate this. And the DoJ and FBI should expel a few illegal families to encourage the others.

We're not just talking about "local" elections, it impacts ALL of us because the people elected will go to Washington where they impact critical national security (among other) issues. All we have to do is think of the many noisome congressmen who are now roiling our government. The Federal requirement for the "Real ID" may force illegals to go back off the grid. Who knows. I wouldn't put it past the --I'll just say it-- un-American policymakers to demand exceptions for their newly enfranchised populations of non-Citizens. The next thing in their traitorous sights is to lower the voting age to children whom we know are already being inculcated with anti-America dogmas. Khrushchev said the commies would usurp the USA without firing a shot... there have been in place long-term plans to be termites in the Body Politic and lay waste. The Left is doggedly chiliastic, patient, determined, ruthless and driven by hatred.

As the article states this is what they do in CA. Unfortunately last yr they started unregistering some people. DMV is saying it was an error, right. So far have not heard of this happening to any Dems. It happened to my husband and he received a postcard in the mail notifying him. The postcard would allow him to re-register but he could only choose NPP or Democrat. He wrote Republican all over the card and sent it back. Didn't work he had to go to county elections office and re-register. This is voter fraud.

Every reader understands this isn't really about NY anymore, right? The blatant, outrageous, corruption and totalitarian behavior of the left has been in our collective faces since JFK stole the W.H. with Chicago voter fraud in 1960. Now it is everyday and everywhere. There is only one solution left and you know what it is. I don't see real reform, the kind that has an honest, investigative media, lawmakers at every level who uphold their oath of office, an effective and objective educational system and a truly workable and fair justice system, till every corrupt Rat,RINO, Republican and fringe party liar is running in fear. When citizens have lost it all and are either being hunted down themselves or are roaming empty government buildings, then things will have changed. Until then expect more of the same. The ONLY reason I haven't lost all hope yet is the flashes of common sense I've seen from the kangaroo kourt impeachment hearings, that have leaked through the media filter. If the few who speak up are enough to change the zombie mindset of parasite voters who fuel the Rat criminality are enough to change the culture in a legal constitutional way, remains to be seen. Human history say no. History says these outrages end in a lot of pain, suffering and death. Of course as always the greatest evil of all of this is a media that supports it. They do a great job of programing dull, emotional minds.

Bill Barr should obtain funding--if he can get it--to have one assistant US Attorney in each federal district to do something--anything--to monitor voting in each district. They can surely find a handful of illegal aliens voting, dead people voting, people voting twice, etc. Then prosecute the offenders, even with light sentences, and publish their names and offenses for all to see.

CNN has agreed to shell out $76 million in a back pay case that involved union employees, making it the largest monetary settlement in the history of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Variety reported that the labor dispute began in 2003 when the media company fired a group of unionized subcontractors working as technicians and in other support roles for Team Video Services before hiring non-union employees to replace those workers. The action sparked a litigation war between the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians and Communications Workers of America that has lasted more than a decade.More than 300 people will take part in the settlement.

Specifically, Iranian officials says the aircraft 'took the flying posture and altitude of an enemy target' as it neared the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps base and attending personal didn't recognize it as a passenger plane. 'Under these circumstances, because of human error, [the plane] came under fire,' the statement read, according to the New York Times. Following the grave mistake, Iran's government

Late last year Chick-fil-A ruffled feathers across the fruited plain when they announced they would no longer provide charitable donations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Salvation Army. Both organizations had faced years of withering attacks from sex and gender revolutionaries who were angered because the two renowned Christian ministries affirmed the biblical definition of marriage. So when Chick-fil-A made their decision public, many Christians accused the company of backing down to a bunch of militant LGBTQ bullies. And in response many of Chick-fil-A's staunchest supporters flew the coop.

In January 2014, the then-president of France, François Hollande, arrived in England for talks with Prime Minister David Cameron on military and nuclear cooperation. No one in the British press really cared about the official reason for the visit, though. At the time, Hollande was living at the Élysée Palace with his girlfriend, but he had just been revealed to have been having an affair with a French actress—he had been darting to her apartment on the back of a scooter, protected by his official security team and his face hidden from view by a motorbike helmet. He had flown into England as the storm still swirled back home.

The House is expected to vote today on legislation that could restrain Trump's ability to launch military action against Iran. Meanwhile, Pelosi is also holding onto the articles
