Texas vs. California, voter roll maintenance

Posted by |

Is Texas very different from California when it comes to the accuracy of voter rolls?

Routine maintenance of voter rolls is continually being challenged and stalled across the country, this is true in both California and Texas, a fact highlighted by recent forced maintenance in California and thwarted attempts to clean rolls in Texas.

Multiple outlets reported this week that California is beginning a long-delayed task of removing lapsed voters (mostly deceased voters) from its rolls.

Non-citizens votes = real meddling

Posted by |

Headed into 2020, as has been the case since 2016, Americans are going to be confronted with the term meddling. Most likely, claims of meddling will be followed by a boogeyman, maybe a Russian or an anonymous political consultant.

In any case, these receptacles for liberal ire are false targets. Real meddling that could affect the outcome of the 2020 election will come from vote harvesters and illegally registered voters canceling the votes of citizens.

Recently, Jimmy Carter challenged the legitimacy of President Donald Trump’s 2016 election, claiming he would not be in the White House without Russian interference. This, of course, is the same narrative that the left has been trying to make a stick for three years running.

The false narrative, in order to survive, begs observers to believe that a handful of Russians behind computer screens with a meager budget swung an election in which hundreds of millions were spent and in which thousands of Americans took an active role. Only kool-aide drinking leftists are lining up, checking their brains at the door and selling out for this false reality.

Left Aggressively Working to Undermine Convictions

Posted by |

The cause of identifying and stopping voter fraud is gaining steam in Texas and nationwide, a movement growing despite efforts to kill it with bully tactics and fake news.

This push brings with it a growing spotlight on fraud prosecutions and convictions, a growing trend that undermines a key talking point from some on the left, namely, that voter fraud doesn’t exist.

Of course, a more accurate sentiment from fraud deniers and certainly the true spirit animating their denials is, voter fraud should not be prosecuted or in fact possible. This position better encapsulates the desires of those working to erode our democracy, undermining the value of the vote by excusing vote theft tactics along with allowing non-citizens or disqualified participants to vote.

Fake news falters; relying on left further burns media credibility

Posted by |

Recent misreporting by several outlets in Texas and around the country suggested Governor Greg Abbott “spearheaded” an effort to remove non-citizens from voter rolls. This “reporting” cited emails from the Governor’s office sent in August to suggest he kicked off the effort.

This “reporting” was a copy paste job and another example of an already discredited media machine taking and running with a left-wing group’s narrative.

If this were just laziness, it wouldn’t be worth examining. But, it’s not laziness, it’s a conscious decision to advance a false narrative, mislead the public and cause confusion to sew discord.

Back to the story at hand. The “gotcha” writing was that Abbott launched the effort in August, In fact, the effort was launched in the spring of 2018 following a hearing of a Senate select committee meeting.

Further, the emails cited as evidence to back this claim speak to the actual timeline of events but since this does not fit the color by numbers narrative, slavishly adhered to when it comes to reporting on election administration, it’s obfuscated.
