Best estimate from in-depth research: Clinton received at least 834,000 fraudulent votes in the recent election

Liberals have been saying for years that there is no evidence of fraud in US election voting.

Conservative activists say the liberal media are ignoring the evidence — that noncitizen voting is illegal and, thus, fraud. They say the Justice Department in the Obama administration was more concerned with preventing states from cleansing rosters of dead and inactive voters than in mounting any investigation into fraud.

“Most voters are never asked for voter ID, so it is dishonest to suggest that with the tens of millions of illegal and legal aliens here, there is no voter fraud,” said Tom Fitton, who heads the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. “In 2016, 1.41 million aliens may have voted illegally, with 1.13 million voting for Democrats.”

“A federal voter fraud investigation is long overdue,” Mr. Fitton said. “It would be a simple matter of analyzing voter registration databases against federal databases of aliens and deceased individuals. Why is the left afraid to even ask the questions?”

There does not appear to be any concerted postelection effort by states to take on the daunting task of checking voter rolls and ballots to verify citizenship. In some states, no ID is required to register and vote.

The U.S. Census Bureau reported in 2012 that there are 22 million noncitizens in the country. This group comprises illegal immigrants and people in the U.S. legally on a visa or permanent resident green card.  Conservatives have long suspected that Democrats continue to encourage illegal immigrants to vote. Liberal leaders have even created “sanctuary cities” across the nation that refuse to work with federal immigration enforcement authorities.

Obama was asked during the campaign last year if illegal immigrants had anything to fear from federal authorities if they voted in the presidential race.  “Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens — and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country — are fearful of voting.  Will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”

“Not true…when you vote, you are a citizen yourself,” Mr. Obama said.

[From an article published by The Washington Times]

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  One of the reasons people know that Democrats encourage illegal aliens to vote is precisely because of what appears in the above comment by Obama himself.  “I call them citizens,” he said, “because they contribute to this country.”  “When you vote, you are a citizen.”  Democrats have long been opposed to proof of citizenship in order to vote, for the simple reason that leniency toward illegal aliens by Democrats encourages them to come here in the first place, and once here, to vote for the Democrats who let them stay here.

White House now threatening Mexico’s largest cash source

Mexico’s largest source of cash comes from Mexicans living in the United States. That is now under the microscope after Trump issued an executive order Wednesday to start building a wall on the border.

 During his campaign, Trump said multiple times that Mexico will pay for the wall. He even threatened to halt or tax cash transfers — known as remittances — from the U.S. to Mexico if the country refused to pay for it.  “They will reimburse us for the cost of the wall. That will happen, whether it’s a tax or a payment — probably less likely that it’s a payment, but it will happen,” Trump said on January 11.

But Mexico’s president won’t stand for it.

“We must assure the free flow of remittances,” President Enrique Pena Nieto said Monday. Remittances are “an invaluable contribution to national development and indispensable for millions of Mexican families.”

Remittances were likely a top issue on the table when Mexico’s top ministers met with Trump’s advisers in Washington Wednesday. Trump and Pena Nieto are scheduled to meet on January 31.

Between January and November of 2016, $24.6 billion flowed back to the pockets of Mexicans from friends and relatives living overseas, according to Mexico’s central bank.

That’s even higher than what Mexico earns from its oil exports — $23.2 billion in 2015. And almost all of that cash comes from the U.S.

The average remittance from Mexico is about $300. Essentially, Mexico’s most lucrative natural resource are the people who leave home.

Remittances help drive Mexico’s economy, from paying for new home construction to schools, especially in low-income areas. The cash transfers from the U.S. have also been growing faster than wages and inflation. And it’s a critical time for Mexico’s economy, which is showing signs of weakness.

With Mexico’s currency, the peso, near an all-time low, its economy only grew 2.2% last year, Mexico’s finance minister says. Trump’s threats are only going to make it worse — the IMF estimates Mexico will only grow 1.7% this year.

On top of slower growth, the government hiked gas prices by as much as 20% at the start of the year as part of an energy deregulation policy. That has sparked widespread protests as well as looting.

All to say: Dollars mean a lot to many Mexicans and they’re becoming more and more valuable. Taxing or halting that flow of cash could negatively impact millions of Mexicans.

But experts caution that even if Trump halts or taxes remittances, Mexicans will still find ways to get cash over the border without paying a tax.

Alberto Ramos, head of Latin America research at Goldman Sachs, says that when wire services charged high fees a decade ago, Mexicans still got their money across the border either in person, through the mail or via traveling relatives.  According to Ramos, “If you tax that money it won’t necessarily stay in the U.S.  It can still go to Mexico through informal channels.”

All the recent “spontaneous” women’s marches were not spontaneous at all, but planned, paid for, and organized by Radical Rich Guy George Soros

The internet – conservative media in particular – is blowing up over the New York Times article showing the spontaneously organized grassroots “Women’s March,” which took place this past weekend around the globe, was anything but spontaneous or grassroots.

Somehow, in what would otherwise be an impossible task logistically, Women’s Marches sprung out of seemingly thin air to take place all over the globe. Many cities and towns in the U.S. took part – Washington D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and many others. There were marches in Paris, Buenos Aires, Sydney, New Delhi, Mexico City, and even Antarctica. Who knew there were so many dopey females who enjoyed wearing crocheted women’s parts on their heads?

However, we did not see reports of women marching in Iran, Saudi Arabia, or other Muslim-dominated countries. Just an observation. (Women failed to march in countries where they have virtually NO RIGHTS at all. Guess the Silly Sorosites must have overlooked those countries somehow in all their planning.)

Asra Q. Nomani wrote in the Times article  of just how “spontaneous” the groundswell of support for the march was. “The Guardian has touted the ‘Women’s March on Washington’ as a ‘spontaneous’ action for women’s rights. Another liberal media outlet, Vox, talks about the ‘huge, spontaneous groundswell’ behind the march. On its website, organizers of the march are promoting their work as ‘a grassroots effort’ with ‘independent’ organizers.

Nomani writes that after researching the genesis of this “grassroots effort,” the “independent” organizers weren’t so “independent” after all. The entire event was brought to us by 56 separate organizations – all controlled by the devil himself, George Soros.

Although a few groups innocently got caught up in the hype, the driving force behind the march were all the typical radical leftist organizations that always seemed to be present, sponsor and organize these hate-filled liberal events. And all owe allegiance (and funding) to one man (two if you count his son Alex, who is worse than his father) and one organization – Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Groups like Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org, The National Action Network, the ACLU, American Atheists, National Resource Defense Council, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the Southern Poverty Law Center and The Council on Islamic-American Conquest Relations, all had a hand in the march.

Why would CAIR, the radical Islamist organization which is merely a front for the Muslim Brotherhood, whose ultimate goal is to install Sharia law in America, be involved in a Women’s March? There is no greater enemy to women than Sharia. Yet they are one the so-called “partners.” Ditto for the National Resource Defense Council, which is a leftist environmental group.

A spokeswomen for the Soros blanket organization, Open Society, said that, “We support a wide range of organizations — including those that support women and minorities who have historically been denied equal rights. Many of whom are concerned about what policy changes may lie ahead.”

Question: If they are indeed protesting for “Women’s Rights,” why don’t they wait until president Trump actually does something, rather than expending all this effort on “policy changes [that] may lie ahead?”

Answer: This march like other marches we will see in the future have nothing to do with what they claim. For the ignorant women, like the Hollywood elites who stood up and spewed their vitriol, this was all about their blind hatred of president Trump, and sour grapes over Hillary’s crushing defeat.

However, for Soros and his radical Open Society Foundation, it is as it has always been – to disrupt nation states, do away with traditional values, global corruption, conflict creation, regime change, crashing economies for personal gain, and of course, wipe Christianity from the face of the earth.

Now you know the truth.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  If George Soros really thinks he can have any negative effect on Christianity, he is a lot dumber than we have always thought him to be.

A little self-reflection for America as a new president takes the oath of office

The Obama years brought us the Arab Spring, Benghazi, ISIS, civil war in Syria, civil war in Ukraine and the secret Iran nuclear deal.  On the home front we got Obamacare, “Fast and Furious” gun-running, IRS targeting of conservative groups, the Solyndra scandal, the VA scandal, NSA spying on US citizens, a Justice department that tried to enforce lawlessness, a State department that was the most ineffective we ever sent abroad to show the world what the USA really stood for, an Oval Office occupant who tried again and again to prove to US citizens that he was not a leader, not a truth-teller, but was a Muslim sympathizer. Oh, and we also got the worst “economic recovery” since the end of World War II along with a level of racial tension not seen in this country for fifty years.  And right at the end of his term, Barack Obama committed the greatest betrayal of Israel in U.S. history and brought us dangerously close to war with Russia.

During his time in the White House, Barack Obama used the full diplomatic power of the government to promote “abortion rights”, “gay rights” and other empty “liberal values” to the farthest corners of the globe.  Here at home, the appointment of two new Supreme Court justices under Obama paved the way for a Supreme Court decision that forced all 50 states to recognize gay marriage.  During his final press conference on Wednesday, Barack Obama told the media that he was particularly proud of this

Obama said he’s particularly proud of the “transformation” on gay rights during his presidency, which saw monumental Supreme Court decisions on gays in the military and same-sex marriage. Obama said his role was mostly to deliver “a good block downfield to help the movement advance.”

He said gay and lesbian activists deserve most of the credit, and singled out talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, to whom he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year.

And the final press conference of his presidency also afforded Obama the opportunity to talk about UN Security Council Resolution 2334.  Sadly, Obama still does not have any regrets for betraying Israel so dramatically.

Obama took an oath of office which legally obligated him to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” and then did all he possibly could to destroy it.  Obama as an elected president was and is guilty of treason.

If we can be proud of anything today as Donald Trump assumes his duties, we can absolutely be proud that we as a people and a country survived the Obama experiment and watched it go up in smoke.

The spiritual battle in the USA and around the world rages on: Two specific comments

FIRST COMMENT:

 

In America, increasing numbers of people in our colleges and in the media are worried about various “micro-aggressions” and “insensitivities.” So those who find themselves so offended by the words of others can now retire to a designated “safe space,” where they can work out their distress with hugs and perhaps coloring books. (They’ve probably never heard that little rhyme about sticks and stones.)

Meanwhile, these delicate flowers are somehow missing out on the biggest story of injustice in the entire world. According to multiple agencies, adherents of Christianity—supposedly the religion of the powerful—face far more persecution than followers of any other religion.

Let me give you a few data points about what this means for our brothers and sisters worldwide before telling you what it all means for us. For the second straight year, according to a study from the Italy-based Center for Studies on New Religions, up to 600 million followers of Jesus worldwide are being prevented from practicing their faith, with untold numbers paying the price of martyrdom. While much of the persecution comes from the Islamic State and similar radical Muslim groups, Christians face discrimination from many sources. The Pew Research Center counts 145 countries where Christians face harassment or worse. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-FIVE!

In Iraq, with the breakdown in order since the Gulf War, the number of Christians has evaporated from about 1.5 million in 2003 to somewhere around 275,000 today. Many were killed; many more have been driven out as refugees. In Pakistan, India, and Myanmar, nationalist religious movements—whether Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist—have falsely tagged Christians as agents of Western powers and seek to restrict their freedoms.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom notes that China has increased its level of persecution against Christians. Many church buildings have been bulldozed. Pastor Bao Guohua and his wife were sentenced to 14 and 12 years in prison for opposing a government campaign to remove crosses from churches.

It’s no wonder that Robert Nicholson of the Philos Project says, “There are many places on earth where being a Christian is the most dangerous thing you can be.”

We know that the default setting for the daily lives of many fellow believers around the world is not power, but persecution. But what does this mean for those of us here in the still relatively protected West? Well, of course first and foremost we should pray for our persecuted brethren. And yes, we should speak up for them, with our government, in the media, with our neighbors, and we should support organizations that aid the persecuted. We know that when one member of the Body suffers, we all suffer.

But let me also suggest that a focus on persecuted Christians helps us develop a biblical worldview and a solid Christian discipleship. The Bible says that we battle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Eph 6:12), and that our adversary, the devil, goes about like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Pet 5:8). Persecution reminds us we are in a spiritual battle—all of us—and that we all must face the possibility that standing for Jesus could prove costly indeed.

Persecution, as the struggles of our fellow believers attest, is a normal part of the Christian life. 1 Timothy 3:12 reminds us that all who want to live a godly life for Jesus will face it. There are no “safe spaces” for Christ-followers in this world. Martyrdom can be expected. The church historian Eusebius said that the early martyrs “wove a crown to offer to the Father; … and having triumphed gloriously should win the mighty crown of immortality.”

A Christian worldview reminds us we are in a spiritual battle, one that requires courage, not safe spaces. We must be always ready to don the full armor of God!

SECOND COMMENT:

 

President Donald Trump in his inaugural address today said the U.S. will seek new allies to “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism” and eradicate it “from the face of the earth.”

“We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.  At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other,” said Trump.

He also promised to seek goodwill with nations around the world while understanding that they have the right to put their own interests first.

“We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example.

Former Army Ranger who survived Benghazi has a few words for liberal celebrities

The word “courageous” gets tossed around a lot in very wrong contexts. Case in point: Hollywood celebrities like Meryl Streep or Rosie O’Donnell who make an ostentatious show of “standing up” to conservatives. (This is doubly true when said conservative is Donald J. Trump.)

However, one individual who actually merits the title of “courageous” — Benghazi survivor Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger — is sick of the false comparisons. In an interview with the Independent Journal Review, Paranto had a challenge for “actors pretending to be someone else” — to try actually putting on a uniform.

Paronto, whose role in Benghazi was chronicled in the movie “13 Hours,” began by criticizing Obama and his continual striving to join the cult of celebrity.

“Obama turned the position of commander in chief into a pop culture thing and pulled away from what the office of the president is all about, which is leadership,” Paronto said.

“He wasn’t supposed to be a celebrity, he was supposed to be a dignified leader. But Hollywood was all over celebrity Obama.”

Paronto then criticized the celebrities who are being lionized by liberals for dropping out of Trump’s inauguration festivities. “You’re a monkey and somebody is turning the crank,” he said.

“The only time I have a real issue with this at all is when these people are looked at as role models. When they back out, and publications like The New York Times or CNN put them on a pedestal for dropping out, it does a major disservice to Americans,” Paronto said.

“They’re not role models. There’s nothing courageous about sitting in your $5 million dollar mansion and looking down upon us. It’s arrogant, it’s pompous, and it’s not bravery.”

The Benghazi survivor then threw down the gauntlet at liberal activists in Hollywood.

“They’re all actors pretending to be someone else. Just because you played a police officer or military veteran, doesn’t mean you understand what it’s like to be in our shoes,” Paronto said.

“So you know what, Meryl Streep, stop putting others down and go do something else. Be like Pat Tillman, drop everything you’re doing and put your life on the line. Robert De Niro, you played a cop in the movies, go be a cop on the streets.  The same principle applies to these other celebrities. You wore a uniform as a costume. Try putting one on to serve your country.”

Paronto made it clear who he thought should really be getting called courageous.

“The real role model is the guy who goes and puts his life on the line for his country, the police officer who jumps in front of a bullet, and the EMT who treats the wounded on the scene, people who put others before themselves,” he concluded. “Those are the true celebrities, the true heroes.”

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Jesus said it best when He commented to His disciples, “This is My commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”  (John 15:12-13)

What it really takes to serve as a police officer in today’s American cities

What it takes to serve as a police officer...

(NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  This article was written by the St. Paul police chief you see above.  It’s well worth your time to read it.)

 

The call came in just after 6 p.m. A newborn baby boy had been abandoned at 239 Selby Ave. on a dark, frigid St. Paul evening.

It’s calls such as this that test officers’ mettle.

 Thankfully, the child was alive, a small beacon of hope in what would otherwise be a difficult night of calls for the cops who patrol and protect the Capital City.

As our officers frequently do, those who responded to the Cathedral went further than necessary to show care and compassion. They visited the baby in the hospital, bearing gifts and wishes for a bright future. Our officers know all too well how difficult life can be; it’s their reality, assisting people in the throes of life’s worst moments.

After leaving the baby in the caring hands of nurses and doctors, the officers went back to work. Night had fallen and other people needed their help.

There were several domestics, including the one where an 11-year-old girl was punched in the face by her father. There was the drunken driver who careened his way through the city’s streets with a 0.252 blood-alcohol concentration. There was the aggravated assault that left a man with a knife protruding from his head.

Sadly, other than the abandoned baby, it was a night like most others experienced by officers responsible for the safety and security of urban environments across the country.

Transitioning from the miracle of life to a near-death experience isn’t easy. It requires a caring nature, confidence, the ability to compartmentalize and a guardian mentality. But the ability to switch gears between caring for the most vulnerable among us and tracking down someone willing to attack another with sheer brutality is something our officers do on a daily basis. I feel like it’s easy for the public to forget that officers are human, that they care about people and that they want the best for those they serve.

Police officers go where others won’t. It isn’t easy, especially these days when much is asked of our cops and every action seems to come under the microscope of public scrutiny. Our cops don’t do it for the glory or the money, and they certainly don’t seek out the bright lights of fame. They do it because they care about St. Paul. They want newborn babies, 11-year-olds, people driving home from work and everyday people to have a safe place to live, work and play.

I admire our cops, because they put so much into making St. Paul a safer place — and they’re succeeding.

The St. Paul Police Department recently released its preliminary year-end crime statistics from 2016. I’m happy to share with you that violent crime was down in the city last year:

  • The overall Crime Index, which measures Part I crimes, is down 2.4 percent
  • Aggravated assaults are down 8.4 percent
  • Thefts are down 7.4 percent
  • Robberies are down 2.2 percent
  • Homicides are down 4.5 percent
  • Rapes are down 13.6 percent.

It is important to note that these percentages are preliminary (based on initial incident data that do not include a final analysis of victims or unfounded reports of crimes). And while the data won’t be finalized until the end of February, it is encouraging — and a testament to the work of our officers.

I know that many variables play a role in whether crime goes up or down, but the exceptional work being done by our officers is an unquestionable factor that should not be overlooked.

As a society, we expect our cops to prevent crime, help hold criminals accountable, give voices to victims and mediate disputes. But that’s not all society asks of them. We’ve slowly changed the role of officers to include social work, mental health, education and more.

In today’s world, society asks cops to help solve its myriad challenges — and in St. Paul our cops are rising to the occasion with professionalism and grace. I am incredibly proud of their willingness and ability to step up and do what is necessary for the people they serve. I am also cognizant of the mental, physical and emotional toll it can take on them.

That’s why we celebrate victories, from newborns being saved to lower violent-crime rates.

The story about the baby abandoned at the Cathedral made headlines, and I’m thankful our officers were recognized for the care and compassion they displayed on that cold January night. But please remember that St. Paul’s cops are out there around the clock, putting themselves in harm’s way during incredibly tense, dangerous and sometimes surreal situations.

Yes, they signed up for the job, but we can’t lose sight of all that our officers see. Some of it is tragic, but thankfully there are those magical moments that remind officers why they do the job.

They do it because it’s their calling and their duty. They do it to keep us all safe, and everyone needs a beacon of hope in the darkness of night.
