Last Thursday, President Trump whipped up another firestorm by suggesting that November’s general election should be delayed, citing potential voter fraud due to extensive mail-in balloting as his rationale. With this latest controversy, we should expect to see not only pushback on Trump’s idea, but a revitalization of the promotion of new -- and the criticism of existing -- various voter ID laws around the country. According to our friends on the Left, such laws are unfair, unconstitutional, and even racist. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asserted that voter ID laws are “silencing the voices of American voters.”

Comments:

Not only should a FEDERAL voter's ID card be required, voters should have their thumbs dipped in ink afterwards. Penalties for vote fraud should include permanent loss of ALL voting rights along with time in federal prison. Make the penalty so onerous that NOBODY will take the chance of cheating!!

I certainly concur with the last sentence of OP's comment. If this country doesn't get a handle on illegal voting, there will be no more legitimate elections.

What needs to be done is a system of voter ID that once that ID is used, it can't be used again. Such a system could have been set up years ago.

NO and Hades NO! If an ID is required to do a host of day to day things to Identify the person, it is very consistent to require the same to VOTE. The Democraps have invented this BS about how that is somehow bad...a typical BS Democrap move!

Voter ID laws disenfranchise those illegally voting, which is why the Democrats are against it.

Refuse to get a picture ID equals no voting for you. Throw the computers out they are to easily programmable to give the results the programmer wants, then erase all evidence of fraud in the computer memory. I was a programmer years ago and we had a program that allowed you to go into any memory address and change the byte/bytes their without ever leaving any evidence behind that it had been changed. Nothing on the disc in read only memory or in random memory, or the computer operating system memory. When America was founded everyone showed up at the voting place in person using paper ballots or they didn't vote. Voting was a hard won fight of enormous odds against people who wanted freedom. Any voter who wants to be certain votes are counted correctly should be allowed to help in the counting in groups of four voters, two from each party to check and verify accuracy. Votes should be placed in bundles of 1,000 and numbered on the back of each vote the bundle number assigned using permanent markers. Today's Marxist communist tyrants are using reverse psychology on people trying to convince everyone that every person regardless if they show up in person or not to prove who they are can vote. This is what allows vote fraud. Their can be no fraud when every voter must show up in person if they want to participate in our hard fought for right to vote.

Voter ID laws have been challenged many times and well written laws are upheld. Studies show NO disenfranchisement. So the answer is, of course, of none of the dem claims are true. The dems haven't made a legitimate claim about any poor treatment of anyone in decades. It's all a fraud to rabble rouse. It's the only thing they actually accomplish.

I as a white person am a bit insulted that the powers that be in the Democrat party think that my relatives that are black and half black are so incompetent that they don't have an ID or know how to get one. Believe me they know how to do that and a whole bunch of other stuff! Including defending our country!

Ms./Mr. Whalen. Trump asked a question whether the election should be moved back. He did not make a suggestion. And while St. Thomas Moore was murdered by those who heard the King's question, 'Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?', I do not think anyone would take a question from Trump as a command let alone a 'suggestion'.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be denied a speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention this month, according to a report. Although the 30-year-old Democratic socialist is one of the most recognizable new leaders in the party, centrists are opposed to giving her time to speak. “I think [Vermont Sen.] Bernie [Sanders] and [Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth] Warren will speak, and they’ll represent the progressive wing of the party very ably,” former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell told Politico. Rendell, a longtime friend of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, said it would be unfair to highlight Ocasio-Cortez, who took office last year after a shocking primary win.

A Chinese national illegally crossed into the United States from Canada earlier this week — while carrying a number of gold bars worth more than $28,500 and about $10,000 cash, authorities said Thursday. The 36-year-old woman was arrested by Border Patrol agents near the town of Amity in Maine on Tuesday, the agency said in a statement. Investigators from the agency determined the spot where the woman crossed the border by matching footprints with her shoes, according to the statement. The woman told them she had been legally allowed in Canada as a student, then illegally crossed the border in the hope of visiting her friend in California.

Former President Barack Obama’s administration secured Bergdahl’s release on May 31, 2014 as part of a prisoner swap for five members of the Taliban.Rice defended Bergdahl’s record in a June 1, 2014 ABC News interview, after she was asked if Bergdahl should be punished for deserting. “He is going to be safely reunited with his family.

On Tuesday night, President Trump announced that U.S. Attorney John Durham had uncovered “breathtaking” evidence about the “corrupt” Russia hoax. That might just have been Trump puffing, except for the fact that the Trump campaign also released a new video hinting that the Democrats, from Obama on down, are going to be in trouble. (snip) Keep in mind that Donald Trump ran a hugely successful reality show. He understands the importance of a narrative arc for any successful broadcast. If Durham’s report had broken six months ago, it would have been old news by the summer. Worse, the media would have explained away almost everything and deep-sixed what it couldn’t explain.

The subscriptions and revenues for ESPN are plummeting at an increasingly fast rate, as the network has replaced its sports coverage with leftist propaganda. Analyst Rich Greenfield recently looked at Disney and ESPN’s reports and found very troubling numbers for the sport network and its parent company. ESPN’s loss in subscribers is also shocking for its size. The loss of subscribers continues and is down another six percent year-over-year. So far, this year’s subscriber loss has accelerated over past years. The sports network was down 4.5 percent in the first quarter, off 5.5 percent in the second quarter, and down a whopping 6 percent in the third quarter.

The transformation is almost certainly the result of the same precautions the bikers in Sturgis are ignoring.
