    Afghanistan’s two presidential candidates Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah have finally agreed a power-sharing deal, drawing a line under a contested election that has dragged out for almost six months. The agreement, which bestows substantial power on the losing candidate, was finalised on Saturday and made public in a ceremony on Sunday. Parties met late into the night over the past few days to seal the deal before Sunday, when an announcement of the final result of the UN-run election audit is expected. Negotiations, begun in July and finalised earlier this week, were drawn out because Mr Abdullah, the losing...
  • Alien Invasion: Thousands of Foreigners Registered to Vote (and Voting) in Virginia

    Some inside the Beltway are in a froth about foreign influence in our elections. Yet I’ll wager they won’t say a word about real foreign influence in elections -- even when actual evidence exists. A new report released today documents that in Virginia alone, 5,556 voter registrations were cancelled because of citizenship defects. Many of those cancelled had gotten on the voter rolls despite saying on their voter registration form that they were an alien and not eligible to vote . Voter history records also show that many thousands of ballots were cast by registrants removed for citizenship defects...

    Documents recently emerged showing that the Democratic National Committee opposed Bernie Sanders and actively worked against his campaign. Jared Beck joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for supporting Hillary Clinton’s campaign instead of remaining neutral. Jared Beck is a practicing lawyer with Beck & Lee Trial Lawyers and also founded the progressive grassroots Super PAC JamPAC. Beck is one of the attorneys involved in a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's popularity is mounting. His approval rating hit an all-time high in a poll released Wednesday, and he has, for the first time, raised more money than his best-funded Republican challenger in his bid to seek re-election.
  • The Spoils of War - Learning Lessons from a French Election

    The May 7 Presidential election in France gained the notice of American media far more than any other French election in fifty years. The American press is notorious for its poor coverage of world affairs, so the rare times that the MSM does choose to shine their light on a foreign country, it merits comment. In this case, the reason is easy to see: the press didn’t pay attention to France because of its geopolitical importance, or our shared history with the country, but because they had a chance to design a narrative that matched their politics: they imagined a...

    California may hold its presidential primary elections three months earlier after lawmakers passed bills Thursday to increase the influence of the nation’s most populous and diverse state. Supporters of the bills say the state’s June primary doesn’t give California voters enough say in who becomes president because it occurs so late on the calendar. The state’s 2016 primary occurred after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had already become the presumptive nominees for Republican and Democratic parties. An earlier primary would give Californians greater influence in the nomination decisions, said Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, who authored the Assembly bill. “California has largely...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday tore into President Trump's claims of rampant voter fraud, saying the allegations have laid a foundation for voter suppression and more restrictive voter identification laws. "The vote fraud mantra is said so often — it’s almost said robotically — that some people have unthinkingly begun to believe that the issue is real," Holder said at a National Action Network conference in New York City. "And with recent claims by Mr. Trump of ‘rigged elections’ based on fraud, again without any proof, save the bluster of the candidate, this mistaken belief in voter fraud...

    North Carolina elections officials found that about 500 ineligible voters cast ballots in the 2016 general election — but not enough to change the outcome of any race, according to an audit released Friday. The State Board of Elections report said the 508 cases — the vast majority active felons — represented a small fraction of the 4.8 million ballots cast. The report didn’t include any evidence of coordinated fraud, and many of the voters claimed to be confused about their eligibility. The audit’s findings contradict Republican claims that voter fraud runs rampant in North Carolina. […] The audit comes...
  • Could half a million French people be tempted to vote twice?

    A computer bug in France’s electoral roll has meant some half a million voters could in theory cast two ballots. And some are tempted. With the first round of the presidential election just over a week away (April 23rd) French voters around the country have been receiving their ballot cards through the post as usual. But many have received two — in fact, some half a million voters could cast two ballots thanks to the bug, according to authorities. The duplicate voting cards were sent out mainly in the cases where people have moved homes since the last time they...

    . . . In case you don’t remember, or are too young to remember, Zip disks and drives were developed by Iomega in 1994. They were a similar size to floppy disks – thicker – but held considerably more data; they started at 100 MB and eventually went up to 750 MB. (Which, in those days, was a lot.) Another interesting distinction about them is that they could be used for either PCs or Apple computers. Several of the major voting machines used back in the day, such as the ESS Model 650 Central Scanner, used Zip disks. And a...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | February 28, 2017 | Joe Schoffstall
    More than 1,000 people in eight Virginia counties illegally registered to vote, report finds Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would require investigations of jurisdictions in the state whose voter rolls contain more registered voters than citizens who are eligible to vote. The bill, first introduced by Republican state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain, was prompted by a report that shed light on eight Virginia counties that had more registered voters on their voter rolls than eligible voters. Obenshain's bill would require "the local electoral boards to direct the general registrars to investigate the list of persons voting...

    Whether or not you believe that voting fraud is a problem in the U.S., one thing is certain: Tidying up outdated voter rolls is sometimes easier said than done. Just ask election officials in the nation’s largest city. After an independent review found that New York City’s voting lists contained people who were dead or in prison, elections officials began an aggressive purge in 2014 and 2015 that eliminated more than 200,000 supposedly invalid registrations. The result? A record number of complaints during the 2016 presidential primary from legal voters who turned up to cast a ballot, but found that...

    You won’t hear much about Rosa Maria Ortega after this week. Ortega is the Mexican alien who was caught illegally voting five times in American elections. Ortega is Bigfoot for those in the media, professors, and Democrats who tell us that "voter fraud is as rare as Bigfoot." The caustic radical Andrew Cohen is one of the purveyors of that lie (@JustADCohen). Unfortunately, when it comes to voter fraud, when you catch one crook, it usually means there are hundreds more hiding in the darkness. When it comes to aliens voting, it’s more like thousands and thousands. And yes,...

    < snip > After enjoying the inauguration and our nation's peaceful transfer of power, we attempted to make our way to a parade viewing party on Pennsylvania Avenue. What should have been a painless trip across town quickly became a prime example of how unhinged the far left has become. Along the way we witnessed smashed cars, broken windows, a fire, and were called names and threatened simply because of how we were dressed; so much for tolerance and acceptance. After arriving at the parade, we had the pleasure of running into former Massachusetts Republican Governor William Weld. Governor Weld,...

    Trump to Dems: 'Pocahontas is now the face of your party' By Phil Mattingly and Ted Barrett, CNN Updated 10:01 PM ET, Fri February 10, 2017 Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump taunted Democrats by telling them "Pocahontas is now the face of your party" -- his insult of choice for Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- during a meeting with senators earlier this week, sources told CNN. The President also used the Thursday meeting at the White House to again surface unfounded claims of voter fraud during the 2016 presidential election. The sources said the Warren moment came up in the context of...

    As President Donald Trump hurls unfounded allegations of colossal fraud in last fall’s election, lawmakers in at least 20 mostly Republican-led states are pushing to make it harder to register or to vote. Efforts are underway in places such as Arkansas, Iowa, Maine, Nebraska and Indiana to adopt or tighten requirements that voters show photo ID at the polls. There is a move in Iowa and New Hampshire to eliminate Election Day registration. New Hampshire may also make it difficult for college students to vote. And Texas could shorten the early voting period by several days. Supporters say the measures...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Hillary Clinton’s former running mate, says Democrats “are so excited that the American public is energized to speak out against the abuses of this administration,” and he believes it will work to their advantage. He pointed to recent rallies in support of health care, in support of women, and against President Trump’s executive orders on immigration, saying Democrats must “take advantage” of the “tremendous public outcry.” “What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box; and now there’s the momentum to...

    As my regular readers know, we have been having some problems with our local Registrar’s Office and their willingness to abide by the Code of Virginia. (If you haven’t been keeping up, you can find my previous emails below.) In a nutshell, we started last August trying to get a list of election officials in Lynchburg. We were refused because they said it was a personnel issue. After a couple of months, one of our Republican committee members found the relevant section of Virginia law that said not only did they have to provide it, but it has to be...

    A warm, sunny Saturday a decade ago, there was a Hispanic festival in our small town, a bedroom community for illegal aliens seeking day labor jobs in the nearby wealthy suburbs. It was a sanctuary city at the time. No problem with the festival itself.  The music was lively and the food tasty.  And don't the Irish have St. Patrick's Day, and the Italians Columbus Day? While wandering around the festivities, I noticed a table with three nice ladies in front of a "Register To Vote" sign.  Curious about its presence at a festival where the bulk of the crowd...
