  • Kobach: Republicans ‘Irrationally Fearful’ of Stating Mainstream Opinions

    Breitbart ^ | 8/18/2017
    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Vice Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity and a candidate for governor, joined host Alex Marlow on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily to discuss the political fallout from Charlottesville. “For years now, the liberal media, and the left in politics in America, have used racism as their Number One scarlet letter, the scarlet ‘R’,” Kobach observed. “If they can put that on somebody, then they have something. You know the old joke: What’s the definition of a racist? It’s a conservative who is winning an argument.” “This has given them an opportunity,...

    Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe was the first governor to defy requests for information from Donald Trump's voter commission, announcing that he refuses to turn over voter registration information from the state. An attorney for McAuliffe previously filed voter identification lawsuits in a number of states that were bankrolled by millions of dollars from liberal billionaire George Soros, who wants to expand the electorate by 10 million voters, documents leaked last year show. The governor's attorney also works with a number of major progressive groups on voter efforts. McAuliffe, who has vetoed a number of voter identification related bills in...

    An architect of anti-immigration efforts who says he is advising President-elect Donald Trump said the new administration could push ahead rapidly on construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall without seeking immediate congressional approval. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who helped write tough immigration laws in Arizona and elsewhere, said in an interview that Trump's policy advisers had also discussed drafting a proposal for his consideration to reinstate a registry for immigrants from Muslim countries. Kobach, who media reports say is a key member of Trump's transition team, said he had participated in regular conference calls with about a dozen...

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the architect of the Trump immigration enforcement structures.  Working diligently behind the scenes Kobach is constructing the actual mechanisms and actionable policies that will make President Trump’s policy proposals actually come into fruition. Fortuitously, President Obama’s executive actions -as carried out by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)- have created convenient lists of many illegal aliens. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), otherwise known as President Obama’s “Dreamers”, and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), which targets the parents of the dreamers, has conveniently assembled a registration of names and...

    Roll Call ^ | 6/29/2015 | Simone Pathé
    Monday’s big election law news came from the Supreme Court’s penultimate decision of the term upholding Arizona’s congressional districts. But before handing down its last three decisions, the court made voting-rights advocates happy by deciding not to review a different election case. “Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday. The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship...

    Former Texas Governor Rick Perry joined the 600 other candidates for the Republican presidential nomination this week. The gravest danger of a Perry presidency would be that Hillary will use some trite quip that Perry will then adopt as a serious policy proposal. In 2006, Perry’s gubernatorial opponent, Chris Bell, explained his opposition to a border fence, saying, “building a 20-foot wall would create a giant market for 21-foot ladders, and that’s about it.” It’s an old joke — but at least Bell is an actual Democrat. Suddenly, that was all Perry could say on the subject of a border...

    During a House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday, Secretaries of State Kris Kobach from Kansas and Jon Husted of Ohio warned that a loophole in President Obama's executive action on illegal immigration could lead to millions of non-citizens obtaining the ability to vote in U.S. elections. "I want to bring to your attention my concern that the President’s recent Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will make it more difficult for elections officials to determine if all voters meet the primary standard for voting – U.S. citizenship. I am not here to debate immigration policy or the President’s executive actions. However, I am...

    Kansas Democratic Senate candidate Chad Taylor’s effort to get his name taken off this fall’s ballot will be heard in the state’s supreme court, according to reports, the latest twist in a suddenly fast-changing race thought to be a shoo-in for Republicans. Last week, Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach ruled that Taylor will have to remain on the ballot since he did not demonstrate that he was incapable of serving if elected, a requirement under state statutes. Taylor went on to file a lawsuit against Kobach, claiming an election official helped him prepare the necessary documents to withdraw from...

    The Hill ^ | 9/4/14 | Alexandra Jaffe
    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) has denied Democrat Chad Taylor’s request to be removed from the Kansas Senate ballot. His Thursday decision means Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will face three candidates on the ballot this fall — Taylor, independent Greg Orman and libertarian Randall Batson — boosting the vulnerable senator’s reelection prospects. Now, Taylor could siphon off enough anti-Roberts votes from Orman, who’s been surging in the race and is now seen by Democrats as their best shot to take Roberts down, to deliver the senator an opening for a win. Kobach told reporters that, after evaluating state

    In 2011, Kansas passed the SAFE Act — Safe and Fair Elections — which requires voter ID, proof of citizenship and signature verification. In other words, it’s designed to make sure that all votes cast in Kansas are cast legally by the person identified as the voter. The law was to go into effect January 1, 2013. But the Obama administration stood in the way. At issue are the forms states use to register voters for federal elections. Kansas and Arizona require proof of citizenship, while the federal government’s form — incredibly — does not. The federal government attempted to...

    by John Urban | Top Right NewsIn a victory for fair elections, a Federal judge ruled Wednesday that Arizona and Kansas may require residents to prove they are U.S. citizens in order to register to vote -- a clear rebuke to the Obama Administration, which had strongly fought the move.The ruling by U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren, which applies to the federal voter registration form, imposes the same requirements as Arizona's and Kansas' state registration forms. Arizona voters passed such a requirement as part of the landmark Proposition 200, way back in 2004. But liberal justices had blocked the rule...

    Imagine, if you will, that you are a public official in the state you live in. As an elected official, you are responsible for carrying out the duties of your office, as best you see fit. If your constituents, ie. the people who elected you, have a problem with the way you conduct their business, they have recourse. They can recall you in another election, or they can simply vote someone else in to fill your position. In other words, they can fire you. They also have the right to protest your actions in a number of various and very...

Following remarks by Alex Nowrasteh, a policy analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in which he denounced E-Verify and claimed - to boos from the audience - that "free market conservatives" should allow employers to hire illegal aliens (see synopsis here), it was Kobach's turn to restore sanity. First Mr. Kobach laid out the concept of "attrition through enforcement" with a simple analogy. He then laid out how Arizona and...

    State lawmakers want Obama’s birth recordsBy Howard Fischer Capitol Media Services Sat, 01/29/2011 - 00:34 PHOENIX — More than three dozen Republican legislators want a plan to require Barack Obama to produce an original birth certificate for Arizona officials if he intends to seek re-election. HB 2544 would forbid the secretary of state from putting a presidential candidate’s name on the ballot unless certain documents are first provided. These include a sworn statements outlining where the candidate has lived for the last 14 years, that the candidate does not hold dual citizenship and that the person’s allegiance “is solely to...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 28, 2011 | Monte Kuligowski
    In his recent AT piece, Paul Kengor looks at Obama's aggregate poll numbers and concludes that the president may cruise to reelection in 2012. And Kengor didn't even factor in the additional votes Obama may secure with our tax dollars via entitlements, subsidies, and his ever-increasing army of government workers. Neither did he factor in the effects of widespread voter registration fraud complements of ACORN-type front groups. On the other hand, it does appear that much of Middle America has awakened to the consequences of electing Obama in 2008. The Tea Party movement is not going away; in fact, it...
