#1  What a shocker (sarc) that Hillary and crew were at the bottom of this sedition. We'll see if anything comes of this. It's easy to be a bit jaundiced about justice happening after the Clintons, Obamas, Holder, Lynch, Comey, Brennan.

Thomas Sowell: Voter Fraud and Voter I.D.
h/t Instapundit
[Creators.com] One of the biggest voter frauds may be the idea promoted by Attorney General Eric Holder and others that there is no voter fraud, that laws requiring voters to have a photo identification are just attempts to suppress black voting.
Q: Is USA the only industrialized country that doesn't requires voter ID?

Yeah, and the 1995 movie "The Usual Suspects" has a line in it too: "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist."

It behooves the Dems to downplay voter fraud and voter I.D. as it has been a tool that has benefitted them in the past.

#3  Even long dead people can vote their Mail-In Ballots in Washington state. The next frontier will be reached when they go to totally e-mail ballots and imaginary people can vote by the thousands millions Billions at the press of a button.

This isn't the 21st Century I was hoping for...

#4  They should do away with mail in ballots. Voting should be done in person, on one day. For Military and embassy people, set up a way to print their ballots, verify ident and then send them in.

And anyone showing up after polls close with a box or two or ballots will simply be shot and the ballots burned.

Home Front: Culture Wars
Fox News Veers Left
[American Thinker] The continued listing to port of Fox News, which rose to prominence precisely because it cut through the politically correct swamp fog that passed as media news just as Donald Trump sliced through the swamp itself on his way to the White House, was on full display on Fox News Sunday when host Chris Wallace joined Democrats whose latest charge of Trump racism occurred when Trump reminded Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings that conditions in his rat-infested congressional district were worse than conditions in ICE detention centers on our porous southern border with Mexico.

Chris Wallace took the occasion of his interview with White House Chief of Staff Mitch Mulvaney to attack President Trump and his tweets pointing out the Cummings’ and Democrat double standard, As Red State reported:

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, in a series of predawn tweets, Trump wrote:

Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous.

His district is considered the Worst in the USA. As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cummings’ District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.

Finally, he wrote: "Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!

This was all Wallace needed to unload on Mulvaney, who was going to have none of this latest recitation by Wallace of Democrat talking points which ignore the bitter truth of what Trump tweeted:

#7  Chris Wallace is worse than CNN. I saw the above segment. Mulvaney was stunned at how idiotic Wallace was Fox News sounding.

[AccordingToHoyt] Yesterday I took a shashay down to Otherwhere Gazette, where someone in the comments of the posts was asking what the difference was between us and the SJWs, except they had a college degree and we didn’t.
