President Bill Clinton Supports Ending Background Checks to Buy Guns
Today, using the 50th Anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech as his backdrop, former President Bill Clinton called for the elimination of background checks to purchase guns. Ever since the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, which Bill Clinton himself signed into law, purchases of firearms in every state must go through a firearms background check that includes | Read More »
The ruling class war against voter ID
It’s funny how majority support is supposed to be decisive for some issues, but completely irrelevant for others. Voter ID laws are enormously popular with the general public, routinely scoring 70 to 80 percent approval. That stacks up pretty well against the most popular gun-control measures you could name. But the political class and its media allies will never portray voter ID as an urgent | Read More »

NC NAACP President Compares Republicans to George Wallace (A Democrat)
On yesterday’s edition of “All In with Chris Hayes” we were greeted with narrative creation at its finest as host Chris Hayes attempted to define the arguments in favor of Voter Identification laws in North Carolina as merely the spoils of victory as opposed to any type of actual reasoned position. HAYES: If a skeptical person looks at what’s going on in north carolina and | Read More »

Rep. Keith Ellison Out of Control
Democrat Representative Keith Ellison currently serves Minnesota’s 5th congressional district as the first Muslim ever to be elected to Congress. Previously there have been questions concerning his potential ties to radical Islam, but as voters take to the polls Tuesday they may want to consider his behavior of late. During a recent radio interview with his Republican challenger, Chris Fields, Ellison twice called his opponent | Read More »
Texas Attorney General warns OSCE on Election Observations
Left-wing groups have gone to international organizations in the run up to this election, seeking to apply global governance to the United States. The results of this is that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE, not the UN as is often reported) has announced it will send election observers, with the implication that Voter ID laws are a problem.
Now, the reason they’re only investigating Republican-run areas is that Republicans would never run to the OSCE or anyone else to interfere with American elections. But that said, we must not let the OSCE observers think they are above the law. The OSCE is a voluntary organization and it has no binding authority over anyone, which is why Texas Attorney General Grag Abbott has warned the OSCE that Texas laws will apply, including bars on unlawful entry of polling places.

DOJ Not Even Pretending to be Nonpartisan Anymore
I’d read something about this several days ago, but for some reason, I decided not to post on it. Now, it’s surfaced again. The Obama Justice Department isn’t even trying to appear to be non-partisan anymore (did they ever try in the first place, though?). Eric Holder is doing his best to scare black pastors into encouraging their congregations to vote for Obama using the | Read More »
Gov. Bob McDonnell (R, VA) signs Voter ID bill.
Because statewide elections matter. Executive summary: the new legislation now requires people filling out provisional ballots from lack of acceptable ID at the polling station “to subsequently submit identification to the electoral board if they want their vote to be counted.” The list of acceptable forms of ID was also expanded to include things like current utility bills and valid student IDs, which will no | Read More »
Judge David Flanagan linked to Scott Walker recall. Twice.
Quick background, as to why you should care: Judge Flanagan has placed a temporary (although you can count on the Democrats wanting to put that adjective in scare quotes, and right quickly) restraining order on last year’s Wisconsin voter reform law mandating that voters show picture ID. There are a few “this just happens” involved, here: This just happens to prevent Voter ID from being | Read More »
Makes No Difference Who You Are…

Project Veritas stings New Hampshire Voter ID-less laws.
Contrary to Matt Lewis, this is not unbelievable. This is why we insist on Voter ID laws. To summarize the video, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas sent a couple of people to New Hampshire primary polling places claiming that they were individuals that had actually died in the last couple months. They were, of course, secretly filming the proceedings… and came away with footage of multiple | Read More »
Artur Davis (D, apostate) admits he got Voter ID wrong.
Which begs the question: what else did former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis* (D) get wrong? I’ve changed my mind on voter ID laws — I think Alabama did the right thing in passing one — and I wish I had gotten it right when I was in political office. [snip] Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too-mentally-impaired to function, cancels | Read More »
Rhode Island and Voter ID
Today, the New York Times has an editorial attacking so-called voter ID bills. According to Democratic and New York Times (but I repeat myself) mythmaking, voter ID is a racist Republican scheme to stop minorities and Democrats from voting: Of course the Republicans passing these laws never acknowledge their real purpose, which is to turn away from the polls people who are more likely to | Read More »
DSCC inadvertently reveals its 2012 battleground?
Not that, if they did, they intended to do that, mind you: they were probably just intending to scare their donors into giving them money (link via @MattCover) by screaming about how us awful, awful Republicans are so insistent that you should show have to show a picture ID when you vote. Well, they’re Democrats. Screaming about Republicans is what they do – besides, these | Read More »
