to Nearly 1M Foreign Nationals

The New York State Republican Party, naturalized American citizens, and a Democrat city councilman have filed a lawsuit against New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) over a new policy that gives voting rights to nearly a million foreign nationals. As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days. Adams approved the plan this week

Eric Adams....the black DeBlasio. Add to this a Soros DA who hides behind the shield of racism and New York is now in even deeper trouble, which no one thought possible.

Huge numbers of foreign tourists would have temporary U.S. visas and many would be visiting in New York City for over 30 days. Would those facts qualify those foreign tourists to vote in New York City elections and then board a commercial aircraft and fly back to their home country?

Would be funny if the "foreign nationals" voted against the Democrats. Guaranteed, if that happened, the Democrats would sue to get the election over-turned because "foreign nationals" shouldn't have voted.

We should get out the work and have a million or so conservatives drive to NY on vote day and all vote repub. Then we can vote out all the dems and the people of NY would have a chance to get out of the mess dems have created.

Every legal citizen of NYC should file their own lawsuit over this. Every non-citizen that votes dilutes the votes of legal citizens. No "class action" lawsuit. A few million individual lawsuits, with every one of them demanding their day in court!!!

I just cannot understand why democrats want to destroy their own country. That is so foreign to everything I know and believe that I cannot wrap my brain around because it makes no logical sense.

What Adams and MYC's city council did was un-American, illegal, and just plain wrong. Besides, there is a sufficient number of ignorant dim voters in NYC to assure non-stop dime victories going forward. He doesn't need non-citizens to vote in order to run up the score.

What was the point of giving voting rights to foreign nationals in NYC? The Democrats already had a lock on the governor's mansion, and the two US Senate seats. Seriously, how many Republicans hold office in NYC? The only answer I can think of is getting more totalitarian types elected in NYC. More AOCs. Was this another ploy to fast-track naturalization for a bunch of foreigners? This really needs to be shot down.

FTA: "...the plan has the potential to massively influence local elections while diluting the votes of American citizens in the city." True, except people aren't "citizens" of states, counties, or cities. They are residents. You can always change your residency to another state, county, or city by meeting the state's criteria. It's more complex changing citizenship. (In fact, upon becoming a US citizen, one retains their other citizenships. No requirement to renounce. Or, some countries recognize citizenship by parental/grandparental decent, like Switzerland and others recognizing a "right to return".) Elections are not Federal matters. They are not addressed by the U.S. Constitution, and do not require U.S. citizenship to vote. Your state could open all elections to non-citizen voters...think about that. What does your state's constitution say on the matter?

The New York City Council is the City's legislature. It has written a law that the Executive, the new Mayor, Eric Adams wasted no time in signing. This is not a rule, a policy or a regulation; it is the law of the City of New York. Period. Look for the radical NYS Legislature and the seriously dumb new governor, Hochul to enact a statewide legislation doing the same thing. The level of stupidity and insanity that is now NYC and NYS governance is downright dangerous. There is no going back. NY is finished.

Three things people not from NYC don't know because the press has sat on it: 1) This idea went through the 51 member City Council (there were only 2 Republicans at the time who voted "no" ... as of January 1st there and now 5) but it passed overwhelmingly anyway! Mayor Adams (Dinkens redux) actually didn't sign it into law because the majority that passed it vastly exceeded his potential veto ... so he sat back and let it become law if no action is taken by the Mayor within 10 working days. This way, later he can claim he "didn't sign it". He also didn't want the veto to be overridden --- bad headlines and all. 2) NYC is crawling with so-called "immigrants" who supposedly have "green cards" (glorified visas) allowing them to stay but the ugly reality is that hundreds of thousands of these people are honest-to-goodness, bona fide illegals. Yes, people who sneaked into the country and found a friend or relative to live with in an outer borough or Manhattan itself. Don't believe that the Board of Elections will actually be checking credentials to make sure they have lived in NYC for a month and have "legal" permission! This is the weather balloon to see if anyone who shows up gets to vote. The 800,000 is a myth --- more like 1.1 million. 3) Even Demo-rats who have lived in NYC for years are not stupid. They know they are getting sheared and their pockets are getting picked. Even they won't support some of the crazy ideas about to come forward ... so they must be outnumbered somehow and this will do it. Basically these "elites" made a deal with the huge alligator that he would eat them last ... and now there is no one left and he's still hungry. Between health care now being dispensed by skin color and not need, special extra taxes on the wealthy, etc. I don't get why these educated & fairly wealthy dummies stay. No sympathy!

Local elections are NOT the true target. Once they start voting locally, they'll also start voting in Federal elections. There is no distinction between the two when it comes to being registered to vote and getting a ballot. There is no "local" registration and "Federal" registration. A registered voter is a registered voter period.

Inflation plowed ahead at its fastest 12-month pace in nearly 40 years during December, according to a closely watched gauge the Labor Department released Wednesday. The consumer price index, a gauge that measures costs across dozens of items, increased 7%, according to the department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. On a monthly basis, CPI increased 0.5%. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been expecting the measure to increase 7% on an annual basis and 0.4% from November. The annual move was the fastest increase since June 1982.

According to the report: …At least seven other Democrats who are running in the most competitive GOP-held House districts—from New York to Iowa to Maryland—have said nothing or vanishingly little about Build Back Better.

While the battle over education has settled back into the trenches over the last few months following Glenn Youngkin’s big win in Virginia, we are beginning to learn more about how parents became so demonized. As RedState reported at the time, the NSBA sent a letter to the DOJ that urged action against parents speaking out at school board meetings under the guise of the Patriot Act. The DOJ then used that letter as justification to use its counter-terrorism division to add “threat tags” to parents. But as bad as that was, today’s news makes it all the worse.

Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett fired two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to help lift the Bulldogs to their first national championship since 1980, beating Alabama 33-18. After a questionable fumble call that led to an Alabama score earlier in the period, Bennett would regroup and toss a 40-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Adonai Mitchell to put the Bulldogs back up. Bennett would strike again later in the fourth with a 15-yard touchdown to Brock Bowers. With 3:33 left, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Bryce Young would get the ball back to try to force overtime. Young would throw a Pick Six to Kelee Ringo, which would seal the deal.

The impression of desperate flailing had already been made on many Americans prior to this, but now media outlets like Axios have sat up and taken notice: While much of the unvaccinated population is unlikely to be persuaded by any messenger, large swaths of the public are still receptive to expert guidance, but federal health agencies, particularly the CDC, may be squandering their credibility with this population.

Meanwhile, as Biden’s handlers do everything they can to be conciliatory toward Iran, the Islamic regime in Tehran is more belligerent than ever.

Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. In their imaginations, it goes something like this: With passions inflamed by a moral renaissance in the North regarding the institution of slavery in the South, the two sides decided to go to war over the issue. In the end, the evil South was righteously razed by the armies of the North, and thus, slavery was ended, and the former slaves made American citizens, as Abraham Lincoln intended.
