Open Letter to Republican Lawmakers (in NC)

May 25, 2017.

Dear Sir or Ma’am,

By now, I presume y’all have already made up your minds on voter ID and will be rolling out a new version any day now. I’ve been busy and couldn’t get down there as much as I’d like. But, just in case, here are my two cents–based on observed voter behavior–for what should be included in such legislation:

  1. DMV Matters. First, we’d still prefer the DMV being the only outlet for valid ID  cards, but given the (IMO) deliberate sabotage last time, by employees who knew exactly what they were doing, I’d still urge y’all to keep it there, but cut the DMV manning and replace them with trained BOE registrars to oversee DMV’s voter registration duties. While some employees lost voter registrations others simply refused to issue free voter ID cards. The key moving forward… is accountability. So just training DMV workers to be more consistent next time is not a good long-term remedy. We’ve already seen where this leads us. California’s DMV used their power and secrecy to issue non-citz driver licenses and then Gov Brown pushed AB-1461 to automatically register all licensed drivers. (See Ch 4.5 of this Calif code.) Our ground-zero counterparts in California, Election Integrity Project, fought the bill, but with a veto-proof majority, California Democrats get whatever they want, and right now, they want non-citizens voting in elections. No surprise here: NPR ignored the danger of this law, but Fox News did not. We need to design in some accountability at North Carolina’s DMV before they can corrupt the voter rolls here, as they have in California.
  2. Voter ID. I assume the reports I’ve gotten are true and y’all will be pushing through a voter ID law before you go home. This is good, but I just ask that you please not create a fake-ID law as was passed in Virginia.Instead, do a clean South Carolina-type law (with mandatory retention and authentication of any RID documentation). Please leave side issues off of this legislation. The most helpful way y’all could pass those ancillary bills is to do them as stand-alone bills that would clearly smoke out Progressive darlings who fight hard (and dirty) against honest elections. While big media says otherwise, election integrity is still a popular issue outside the beltline. If you  guys can give us a clean picture of fraud-friendly lawmakers, it would help us brand them before one of them becomes another AG or Governor.
  3. Ancillary Election Integrity Laws. We’ve offered several laws over the past five years and always hit the same brick wall: “We don’t want to pass any laws that might make us lose the voter ID lawsuit.” I would be honored to brief you (or your leadership) on which ones would be most helpful to add into legislation at this late date, but a few topics we’ve covered extensively in the past include last session’s H1088, H115 and this session’s H696, H697, H698, and H29 (which passed the House and awaits death in the Senate Rules Committee). If anybody is interested, I can explain why we need each and every one of them… based on facts.
  4. Same-Day Registration. I don’t work for Civitas, but they do great work and Susan Myrick shows pure genius on the issue of election law reform. She posted a very realistic reform proposal for SDR, but I have no idea whether or not anybody took her up on the idea. It would enable lots of legit voters to use SDR while it would slow down the efforts of organized groups exploiting SDR’s inherent vulnerabilities. Here is the link to Susan’s suggested reform. I have no need to add anything to her ideas. They’re brilliant.
  5. Constitutional Amendment for Voter ID. I hope I’m not the first person to point out that even if you do get the Feds to allow NC to have honest elections, the State Supreme Court will copy the Pennsylvania state courts and find an excuse to block it under the state constitution. If you really want to see NC voter ID in time for the 2020 election, you might preempt judicial nullification with a constitutional amendment.

Bottom Line: In 2008, ACORN was busted all over the country for committing voter registration fraud. It aroused public fears over Chicago-style vote fraud going nationwide. Starting in 2010 and out of concern for election integrity, several members of your caucus first won their jobs. When Gov Purdue vetoed NC’s first voter ID law, the public responded by giving Republicans a veto-proof majority. Thanks to a paralyzing strategy of Progressives (and a lot of money from Soros), you guys are seven years into a 10-year cycle and have only passed a tiny amount of integrity reforms. If we don’t see something pretty soon, a lot of your party’s most faithful supporters are going to question your intent. The Left already assigns an unfair motive to election integrity reforms. Now, I only hope that your caucus’ future actions can help prevent the Right from assigning a more cynical motive.

Respectfully,

Jay DeLancy

Medal Of Honor Recipient Warns: “It’s Going To Come Here… Trump Must Release The Gates Of Hell” On Islamic State

trump-war3

With British Prime Minister Theresa May warning that another attack may be imminent, Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer says that it’s time to strike Islamic State strongholds without mercy, because sooner or later we could well witness suicide bombers detonating themselves in the middle of large crowds right here at home.

Arguing that President Obama, who awarded Meyer his Medal of Honor, was weak on ISIS and terrorism in general, he says President Trump should take a completely different strategy.

In short… it’s time to unleash the gates of hell…

I’ve been saying this is going to happen for a long time.

When is it coming here?

I think the only way you get this point across is that we release the gates of hell on them and we start making war so ugly that…their recruitment videos… it won’t be cool to join ISIS anymore.

And at some point we’re going to have to do that… this labeling of ‘it’s a lone wolf’ attack… or saying it’s not connected or this or that…

You can’t just ignore this problem because it’s going to come here…

The only thing I am optimistic about with this situation is that we have a President… think whatever you want about his politics…

At least we have a president that’s in place that’s not going to allow us to be the victims… you can guarantee he’s going to do whatever it’s going to take… no matter if it’s popular in the court of public opinion… he’s going to do what’s right to protect America…

Our guess?

President Trump was just warming up when he dropped this mother of all bombs on an ISIS complex in Afghanistan earlier this year:

It’s Coming…We Must Steel Ourselves in Heart, Mind, and Body

The Defensive Training Group

What, you may ask?  Simply the 10th* (yes, there actually were 9 of them in the Middle Ages) Crusade.  Each day that goes by, the Invader presses our culture and society with probes to see how much he can get away with.  Europe is under siege and is being taken because, simply, they have no Hope, no unifying belief to defend.

Here, many are under the false impression that Christians must sit and watch their culture, cities, towns, villages, families, women and children be pillaged, raped, and murdered while ‘turning the other cheek.’

Clearly understood Christian faith demands that we defend Christendom.  Get off the fence and off your ass.  Train.  Equip.  Prepare.  Yes, there still is time.  All you need do, Christian, is look to your priorities:  Faith, Strength, and Resolve.

The need for this will be here before long:

And no, it won’t be the romanticized Crusade of…

COPS HID EVIDENCE, HALTED SETH RICH PROBE

Image result for Seth RichBy Liz Crokin

The head of a private investigative team operating out of Washington, D.C., to solve the murder of Seth Rich insists that officials with the Metropolitan Police Department – in collusion with the mayor – are withholding key evidence from the public and obstructing the investigation for political purposes.

Jack Burkman, the head of the Profiling Project investigative team, said police are no longer cooperating with anyone, and he believes they’ve completely stopped the investigation into Rich’s murder.

“The police have shut down all full operations,” Burkman told WND. “The police are not cooperating with us or anyone, which is sad. This has become a very systematic and deliberate effort by the D.C. police and the mayor to end the Seth Rich investigation.”

But in a statement to WND, the Metropolitan Police Department disputed Burkman’s allegations.

“MPD does not entertain conspiracy theories, and does not engage with conspiracy theorists,” the statement from MPD’s Karimah Bilal said. “If you are in possession of information that you believe to be relevant to this or any case, please let us know the details of such information such that it can help, rather than hinder, our investigation.”

As WND reported, a manager at Lou’s City Bar, the last known location Rich was seen before his murder, claims police never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested evidence from the establishment.

Burkman – who is also a GOP lobbyist and has offered a $105,000 reward of his personal money for information leading to the arrest of Rich’s killers – said police initially cooperated with his team. But now he claims they’re not cooperating with any parties involved.

The Price of Delegitimization

The Virginia Freeman's Society

What’s in a name? that which we call a roseBy any other name would smell as sweet…  – William Shakespeare


The internet has been rife with controversy and frantic keyboard banging, the most cogent and memorable being Zman’s post about the nature of the Neojacobins inside the beltway and on the coasts. Having been around more than my fair share of that class of people, I have a working knowledge of the very different Americas that exist within the same borders. The perception the media cultivates is one of competence and informed gravitas. Well dressed men posses secret knowledge and are 21st century Sophists, deciphering hidden meanings and teasing the future out of press releases, appointments, firings and now ice cream. The truth is, most are horrifically isolated. Much of America, including the liberty movement is the same way, but few have the bully pulpit of CNN, MSNBC…
