The following examines a few that have already been taken.
Obama blocked us from vote-fraud data
J. Christian Adams, who worked in the Justice Department’s Voting Rights Section under President George W. Bush and now heads the non-profit Public Interest Law Foundation, emphasized to WND that “data-driven conclusions are the most valid.”...
While he and his colleagues have run into resistance, requiring federal court intervention in some instances, they have obtained voter-registration records from eight of Virginia’s 133 cities and counties, discovering 1,046 illegal aliens were illegally registered to vote. He’s also forced several counties to clean up their voter rolls in states such as Mississippi and Texas...
Earlier this week, civil rights leaders who met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked him to urge President Trump to call off plans for the blue-ribbon panel to probe vote fraud.
Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, said Tuesday, according to Politico, the commission would be “seen to intimidate our communities.”
“We don’t need an investigation into something that doesn’t exist,” she said.
Steve Baldwin, a member of the California State Assembly from 1994-2000, told WND he saw evidence of illegal-alien voting in his San Diego-area district, which borders Mexico...
He pointed out that along with refusing to cooperate with states that tried to verify voter registration records against federal databases of illegal aliens, the Obama administration spent at least $100 million dollars on programs that, in part, encouraged illegal aliens to vote.
He cited a Judicial Watch report of government documents showing the Obama administration spent $19 million alone in 2016 to register “immigrant voters.”
In addition, he noted that the number of states, since then, allowing non-citizens to obtain driver’s licenses has exploded.
Furthermore, Obama’s Justice Department sued states that attempted to pass voter ID laws.
“No other modern country in the world has such an absence of any kind of identification to vote, not even Mexico,” Baldwin commented. entire post
IRS Targetting Conservative Groups:
Obama IRS Scandal Update
We have no intention to allow the extra-legal activities of President Obama’s administration to fade into the sunset now that he is out of office. Particularly egregious was his using the might of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to target groups that disagreed with his political views.
This week Judicial Watch reported that the agency informed the U.S. District Court that it located “an additional 6,924 documents of potentially responsive records” relating to our 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal
The lawsuit at issue sought records about the IRS selection of individuals and organizations for audits based upon applications requesting non-profit tax status filed by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations (Judicial Watch v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:15-cv-00220)).
These newly identified records are presumably not the records contained in the so-called “Congressional Database,” which the IRS created in 2013 to house records responsive to congressional inquiries into the IRS scandal. Continue
The Leftist War On the American Workers And Taxpayers:
Now it's new Democratic Party vs. American worker
The Democratic Party once produced presidents such as Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy. Major party leaders were fierce opponents of mass immigration because they recognized the negative impact it had on wages.
And America’s center-left party presented itself as a friend to American workers, fighting for their interests against corporate bosses.
But the Democratic Party of the past is not the Democratic Party of today. Indeed, one author and researcher suggests the current Democratic Party is more concerned with defending “international socialism” than American workers.
Trevor Loudon, who has researched communism and leftist movements for decades, exposes the change within the Democrats in his documentary “The Enemies Within.” He argues the current Democrat leadership team of chairman Tom Perez and vice-chairman Keith Ellison represents a fundamental departure for the party from its patriotic past.
“It is a socialist party,” he told WND. “Today’s Democratic Party has completely abandoned the ‘middle ground.’ It is now a full-on ‘progressive party’ with an agenda and platform almost indistinguishable from that of the Communist Party, or Democratic Socialists of America – which incidentally openly backed Ellison in his race against Perez.
“The Democrats of today would be marching in the streets against traditional Democrats such as Harry Truman or JFK.” continue
Groups Helping Illegal Immigrants Took $291 MILLION From Taxpayers
Illegal immigration is a big business. Lots of people are making millions, and tens of millions, and hundreds of millions, from it. This is a swamp that desperately needs to be drained.

The Sedition Never Stops:
Hillary And Obama Are ROBO Calling To Resist Trump
And at some point, you would think the left would be embarrassed by such desperation. Why would the leaders of the Democrat party be robo-calling citizens to “resist” Trump? Seriously?
Dennis Michael Lynch uncovers the ridiculousness:
Numerous American Twitter users have reported receiving robocalls from former president Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton inciting them to “resist Trump.”
… Twitter users also report receiving automated calls from Obama encouraging them to disrupt town hall meetings in congressional districts and to urge elected officials to reject Trump’s cabinet nominees. To see a few tweets, go here
Funding Divisive Projects Via Taxpayers
Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Received Over $500K in Taxpayer-Funded Gov’t Grants
The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation was awarded more than $500,000 in taxpayer-funded government grants since 2010, records show. Seven of its leaders additionally paid themselves six-figure salaries, according to the group's most recent tax filings.
The CBC Foundation, a nonprofit that is separate from the Congressional Black Caucus, carries a mission of advancing "the global black community by developing leaders, informing policy, and educating the public."
Despite its separation from the Congressional Black Caucus, a number of members sit on its board of directors. These representatives include Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas), who chairs the group, Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), Hank Johnson (D., Ga.), Emanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.), Alcee Hastings (D., Fla.), Gwen Moore (D., Wis.), Terri Sewell (D., Ala.), and Brenda Lawrence (D., Mich.)...
Individuals from major corporations also have a spot on the group's board. Lonnie Johnson, who serves as counsel at Exxon Mobil, Earle Jones, the senior director of governmental affairs at Comcast, and Emmett Vaughn, the director of the diverse business empowerment office at Exelon, one of the nation's largest electric companies, all have a place on the board...
The last available Form 990 from the foundation shows that $1,014,142 of the foundation's expenditures went towards salaries with seven employees pulling in more than six figures...to see the rest, go here
The Case of the Pakistani IT Brothers Working for the Dems Gets Even Stranger
Days before U.S. Capitol Police told House members that three Pakistani brothers who ran their computer networks may have stolen congressional data, their stepmother called police in Fairfax County, Virginia, to say the Democratic staffers were keeping her from her husband’s deathbed.
Fairfax County is just outside Washington. A relative described the woman’s life as being completely controlled by the brothers for months while they schemed to take their father’s life insurance.
Authorities said the brothers–who as IT professionals for Congress could read House members’ emails– used wiretapping devices on their own stepmother and threatened to abduct loved ones in Pakistan if she didn’t give them access to money stowed away in that country. Investigation: continue here
Axing Wasteful EPA Program that Gave Leftist Groups Millions “Racist”
The Trump administration is being accused of racism for cutting a wasteful program that’s given leftist groups tens of millions of dollars to help poor, minority and indigenous communities attain “environmental justice.” The initiative was launched under Barack Obama’s first Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief, Lisa Jackson, to help low-income populations obtain the same degree of protection from health and environmental hazards as wealthy communities. Over the years, heaps of taxpayer dollars have filled the coffers of leftwing groups—including some dedicated to helping illegal immigrants—that teach black, Latino and indigenous folks how to recycle, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization” and participate in “green jobs.”
The cash flowed freely through the EPA’s special environmental justice office, which the Trump administration plans to get rid of as part of a broader budget cut for the famously bloated agency. More
An American Awakening?
Democrats Flip Zero Seats in Four Blue State Special Elections
Democrats have failed since Election Day in November to take any Republican-controlled seats in four special elections in blue states, despite hefty investment from the Democratic Party.
Since President Trump's election, there have been several state-level special elections across the country. The Republican State Leadership Committee, or RSLC, published a memo this week showing Republicans have won every district they previously held across multiple states that Democrats have won in the last three or more presidential elections.
Republicans kept their seats despite "hefty financial investments and high profile Democrats lending star power to state-level candidates," RSLC noted.
There were four elections that Democrats hoped to win to show their resistance to Trump could be translated into electoral victories. The elections were in Virginia, Minnesota, and, most recently, Connecticut–all states Hillary Clinton won in the 2016 presidential election.
