The goal is to keep that supply of terrorists growing. The younger they start the better. If they think they can beat us by numbers they are wrong. Unless of course they do it by voting.

By not mentioning Islam or muslim in an article about child marriages it instead just SCREAMS it out. Islam really has destroyed civilization in the Middle East, hasn't it? Iran-formerly Persia-predates the USA by hundreds of years but somehow they still lag behind us. Must be all the inbreeding. Yes, they inbreed, they marry their close cousins. Islam forbids young women from being alone with men who aren't from their family, so the only women the young men ever get to hang around with are their sisters and cousins. The Arab race is actually de-volving because of it. Bleechh.

Article has been removed. The Nazi’s have struck again. You knew it was going to happen. Used search box to find article using “child marriage” and no results. None. Let that sink in.

Voter fraud is too nominal to make a difference in any given election, goes one popular line of argument. But tell that to voters in parts of Florida, Missouri, New York, and North Carolina in recent years. Districts in these four states saw election outcomes overturned after absentee voter fraud came to light. Now, with millions of Americans homebound because of COVID-19, progressives are amping up their push for national mail-in voting as Michelle Obama throws her support behind related legislation purporting to be a response to the pandemic.

Conservative syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg slammed Kayleigh McEnany for her role as White House press secretary, calling her “grotesque” on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” After playing a clip of McEnany sparring with reporters, host Chris Wallace said, “Unmasking is pretty routine. It’s an effort by people in an administration to find out who a masked person is. It happens in the Trump White House. It happened I think 16,000 times the year before last. What’s a crime is leaking it, but unmasking isn’t. In addition to which, I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well.”
