Illinois lawmakers are raising questions about the integrity of state elections after the secretary of state admitted hundreds of non-citizens were registered as voters, and could have cast ballots illegally in the 2018 election. In a letter, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office said a “programming error” in a signature pad at driver services facilities led to hundreds of non-U.S. citizens accidentally being registered as voters. The Secretary of State’s Office said the problem has been fixed Tuesday, but state lawmakers and election authorities are just beginning to raise concerns. “We view it as a significant problem," said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board Of Elections.

Illinois? Not a glitch--a bureaucratic strategy, Non-citizens comprise a major--and growing voter block of the overall democrat structure. Citizens who pay attention to American politics have understood this scheme for years.

A technical glitch, yeah, that's it. That explains over a hundred years of democrat corruption in Illinois.

First, it should be the responsible thing to ensure anyone who is here illegally, but obtaining a drivers license, but later votes is advised they can no longer apply for legal status, or become a United States citizen. Second, if they find out they voted, but didn't, that person needs to report this promptly. And, to all those Democrats who are advising otherwise, they should be called out by the immigration advocates as harming their constituency. Lastly, install fingerprint technology on all of our voting machines which will be cross-referenced to all government data bases and across state lines. Mail-in ballots will need a place to apply fingerprint, and will be counted differently, more strictly to ensure integrity of the vote.

This is very easy to fix. For good. Jesse White/Illinois REQUIRES everyone who wants to fly on a commercial airline from October 1, 2020 onward to submit multiple documents (passport, residency, signature, etc.) in order to receive a "REAL ID". Simply make it required to show your REAL ID in order to be able to vote from now on. Problem solved. If not, why not, Mr. Secretary of State?

My 18th birthday was on a Sunday in 1981, in Illinois. The next day, I walked (small town) down to the post office and registered for the draft. Then I went another block to city hall and registered to vote. A few days later I got a couple letters in the mail, one with a voter registration card and one with a selective service card. To vote, I had to present one card at the polls. To go to college, I had to present the other card to receive student loans. Since then, I’ve lived in three other states. They all registered me to vote when I converted my driving license from the previous state—they wanted proof of address, but didn’t (until recently, with Real ID) want proof of citizenship. I didn’t need to present anything at the polls to vote. I like the old way better—if you can’t be bothered to make a five-minute stop at the city clerk's office after you move, you probably shouldn’t be voting.

A civil rights group is calling on Roman Catholic church leaders to reject a sermon in which a Minnesota priest described Islam as a threat to the U.S. and Christianity. The Rev. Nick VanDenBroeke is pastor of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in the small town of Lonsdale. He said during a Jan. 5 sermon that large numbers of Muslims should not be allowed to seek asylum or immigration to the U.S. The homily that was posted for the public on the church's website has since been deleted.

The shooting took place around 6 p.m. at a barbershop called Gotcha Faded located in the 200 block of North Pulaski Road in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. Chicago police said two men entered the barbershop, looked around, exited the shop and then began firing into the doorway. Police said an 11-year-old, a 12-year-old and a 16-year-old were shot along with a 30-year-old male and a 40-year-old male. One of the men was an employee at the barbershop.

Bill Barr is plugged into, and gets his marching ­orders from, a network of reactionary Catholics, whose tentacles reach into the highest echelons of power. At the center is a sinister, secretive organization with a Latin name: Opus Dei, “the Work of God.” That’s the impression you might take away from a new profile of the attorney general in The New Yorker. All that’s missing are the hair shirts, cilices and murderous albino monks — the kind of thing too many secular elites believe about the lives of devout ­Catholics generally and members of Opus Dei especially.

A complaint says 37-year-old Jason Brown gave $500 on three separate occasions to someone he believed would forward it to an IS fighter. But the middleman was cooperating with authorities and the supposed militant was an undercover law enforcement officer.

You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats -- they can hold their caucus together for the flimsiest of causes. The GOP, though, has all these RINOs who have to establish their independence; they’re willing to break party unity when it serves their own ambitions. Three senators – Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah – are rumored to be willing for witnesses to be called in the impeachment trial now underway in the Senate. Obviously, such a slowdown benefits the Democrats, who want the impeachment to headline news reports as long as possible.
