More Voter Fraud

Posted by Jack

Barth interviewed Republican Assembly Candidate for District 15, Stan Vaughan, who had actual proof of the massive voter fraud in his Clark County district. A total number of 17,086 votes were cast in the District for both Republican and Democrat candidates. However, when confirmation letters were sent to the voters in the District, the US postal service returned mail from 9,200 of these voters.

Vaughn found that many of the people who are listed as deceased are still on the active voter rolls. Many of the returned mail came back with 5 people living in a vacant lot with no mail receptacle. Edward Snowden, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and dozens of movie stars were registered to vote in District 15 according to Mr. Vaughan.

Link to the above story.

Actual proof of massive voter has yet to surface. I’ve heard the allegation that as many as 3M illegal aliens may have cast a ballot, but no authoritative source has come forward to prove it. No doubt there were many dead people, illegals, and aliens that did vote, but it appears so small as to not affect the election one way or the other.

Maggots in Wound ~ Veterans Still Receiving Poor Care

Posted by Tina

Veterans are still receiving poor care in the VA system even after several scandals have brought attention to failures. The incident this time involves a veteran who was found to have maggots in his wound in an Oklahoma VA hospital:

Executive Director Myles Deering said the maggots were discovered while the patient was alive but were not the cause of his death. He said the man came into the center with an infection.

“He did not succumb as a result of the parasites,” Deering said Tuesday. “He succumbed as a result of the sepsis.”

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection.

A physician’s assistant and three nurses, including the director of nursing, resigned in the wake of the investigation, said Shane Faulkner, a spokesman for the agency.

Owen Reese Peterson, aged 73, was a Viet Nam veteran. His son complained about the care his father had received: “During the 21 days I was there, … I pled with the medical staff, the senior medical staff, to increase his meds so his bandages could be changed…I was met with a stonewall for much of that time.”

Peterson died of sepsis, a condition “caused by an overwhelming immune response to infection.”

Poor care in VA facilities will continue to be an issue into the future. Most VA hospitals are in worse shape than our failing infrastructure and some report difficulty in staffing.

Trump and the Republican Congress must finally take steps to significantly address this shameful situation. One idea that’s been put forward will have an immediate and positive effect, allowing vets to seek help from alternative sources when care is being delayed. But decisions must also be made about staffing problems and repairing and updating facilities…or abandoning them altogether.

Should we choose to keep the VA system in some form, renovating or building new hospitals could be an excellent, long-term charitable project for the many billionaires that really do want to make a difference.

It’s Clear Illegals Voted – What Can Be Done?

Posted by Tina

Paul Mirengoff at Powerline quotes Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund at WSJ on the issue of illegal immigration votes:

[A] 2012 study from the Pew Center on the States estimat[ed] that one out of every eight voter registrations is inaccurate, out-of-date or duplicate. About 2.8 million people are registered in more than one state, according to the study, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead. In most places it’s easy to vote under the names of such people with little risk of detection. . . .

In 2015 one Kansas county began offering voter registration at naturalization ceremonies. Election officials soon discovered about a dozen new Americans who were already registered—and who had voted as noncitizens in multiple elections. . . .

One district-court administrator estimated in 2005 that up to 3% of the 30,000 people called for jury duty from voter-registration rolls over a two-year period were not U.S. citizens. A September report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation found more than 1,000 noncitizens who had been removed from the voter rolls in eight Virginia counties. Many of them had cast ballots in previous elections, but none was referred for possible prosecution.

A 2014 study by three professors at Old Dominion University and George Mason University used extensive survey data to estimate that 6.4% of the nation’s noncitizens voted in 2008 and that 2.2% voted in 2010. . . .

A postelection survey conducted by Americas Majority Foundation found that 2.1% of noncitizens voted in the Nov. 8 election. In the battleground states of Michigan and Ohio, 2.5% and 2.1%, respectively, of noncitizens reported voting. In 2013, pollster McLaughlin & Associates conducted an extensive survey of Hispanics on immigration issues. Its voter-profile tabulation shows that 13% of noncitizens said they were registered to vote. That matches closely the Old Dominion/George Mason study, in which 15.6% of noncitizens said they were registered.

Others have looked at the issue.

Investor’s Editorial:

…in fact, it’s almost certain that illegals did vote — and in significant numbers. Whether it was three million or not is another question.

While states control the voter registration process, some states are so notoriously slipshod in their controls (California, Virginia and New York — all of which have political movements to legalize voting by noncitizens — come to mind) that it would be shocking if many illegals didn’t vote. Remember, a low-ball estimate says there are at least 11 million to 12 million illegals in the U.S., but that’s based on faulty Census data. More likely estimates put the number at 20 million to 30 million.

What’s disappointing is that instead of at least seriously considering Trump’s charge, many media reports merely parrot leftist talking points and anti-Trump rhetoric by pushing the idea that Republicans and others not of the progressive left who seek to limit voting to citizens only are racist, xenophobic nuts.

But there is evidence to back Trump’s claims. A 2014 study in the online Electoral Studies Journal shows that in the 2008 and 2010 elections, illegal immigrant votes were in fact quite high.

“We find that some noncitizens participate in U.S. elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and congressional elections,” wrote Jesse T. Richman, Gulshan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.

More specifically, they write, “Noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”

Specifically, the authors say that illegals may have cast as many as 2.8 million votes in 2008 and 2010. That’s a lot of votes. And when you consider the population of illegal inhabitants has only grown since then, it’s not unreasonable to suppose that their vote has, too.

See more from Breitbart’s Neil W. McCabe.

Back to Von Spakovsky and Fund for how to fix the problem:

The Trump administration should direct the Department of Homeland Security to cooperate with states that want to verify the citizenship of registered voters. Since this will only flag illegal immigrants who have been detained at some point and legal noncitizens, states should pass laws, similar to the one in Kansas, that require proof of citizenship when registering to vote. The Justice Department, instead of ignoring the issue, should again start prosecuting these cases.

I’m all for prosecuting these federal crimes. Getting California, New York or Virginia to cooperate would be a challenge and I submit it is in these states, with their sanctuary city mentality, that the problem is likely over the top.

Paintings by Jack Lee

The following were completed in Oct – Dec of 2016.  They are acrylic on canvas.  Your comments, criticisms, etc. are all welcome.

The first painting was a challenge because I have never painted an animal before.  I had to learn as painted.  This is called, Riley the Dog, because it is Riley the dog.  Getting him to pose was my greatest challenge.   Several dog lovers have seen this in person and they called it a…. “master piece!!!”  (chuckle) I like a compliment as well as anyone, but honestly, I think I was getting kudos for the subject material and not the painting style…besides, c’mon, it’s my first dog painting, hopefully I’ll improve!

The painting in the middle was done for a local art exhibit celebrating Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, where Hispanic families remember their ancestors in a lively and fun way.   It was well received, although this is not my style.  I did it because I was asked.  My critics said they thought they’ve seen this somewhere before…nope, came right from my head!  As odd as it is, a few of my regular reviewers (friends and family members) thought the technique of blending colors, especially on the sombrero, was possibly my best ever.  The more I looked at it the more I liked it.  I think this one has to grow on you.  Would NOT be my first purchase in a gallery, that’s for sure!

Ocean scene at dawn #3:  I like colors, what can I say? lol

If you look close at the surf you can see the transparent effect as it rolls onto the beach.  This painting has since been modified and the fog line in the background was made more dramatic.  Also more gulls were added on the beach, rocks and in the air.  Didn’t really improve it, but it did give the viewer more detail to discover.

Amherst – Burning Old Glory on Veteran’s Day

by Jack

The Dean of Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., decided its better to give students their way than defend the flag or tell them no.

But, thank God the Vets didn’t see it that way.  Around 1,000 veterans gathered at a western Massachusetts college Sunday to protest the school’s decision to stop flying all flags, including U.S. flags, after students allegedly burned a flag in protest of Donald Trump’s election victory.

Hampshire College in Amherst outraged many with its decision to remove all flags from campus. Protesters expressed their displeasure and hoped to reach out to students during their demonstration.

“They took down my flag, they have a right to that, I’m here to defend their right to do that but I want them to understand how bad that hurts me,” veteran Jerry Maguire told WWLP-TV.

The station reported that hundreds all over the New England region joined the protest, including Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. He stood with the veterans as well.

The students are wrong.  It may not be illegal to burn the US flag, but it is wrong.  Personally, I would like to see anyone who burns the flag on US soil do a little jail time. If they burn the flag flying at a public place, like a college, it comes under vandalism,  destruction of public property and possibly arson.  These are illegal acts and the law can sentence the offender to jail.

Why the college dean chose to remove the flags and appease the no-nothing children/students and upset adult Americans, is beyond me.  It was a typically liberal thing to do, I get that part, but I will never understand the deeper… why?

These quasi-adults (children really) need direction, direction involves being told no, it involves being accountable and they need to toughen up and show some patriotism and respect.  If they don’t, they ought to get their collective asses kicked hard.  That was not the message this weak kneed Dean sent.  He missed a wonderful learning opportunity.

Are Many Retail Stores Coming to an End?

by Jack

When you stop and think about it, Malls and giant stores reaching the end of their value to society.  They cost millions to build, they take up huge amounts of living space, they pose a liability on a number of levels, then there’s the associated crime from shoplifting, theft from vehicles  to armed robbery.

Compare the madhouse at the mall to shopping online from the convenience, comfort and security of your own home.  Actually, there is no comparison!   Far more products are available for you to peruse and price compare online.  If its out of stock at one site, you will find it in stock at another site.  What could be easier?  And the savings, wow….again no comparison, because online merchants don’t have the costly overhead.  Online products can be sold for a lot less.  Often times you will avoid paying a sales tax and shipping is either free or its a wash compared to you driving all over town shopping.

The rare exceptions would be if you want the product immediately, but better planning would take care of 99% of that.  The other is fitting clothes, but again, these are the rare exceptions.

Whenever possible, I will always shop online because my money goes further.  Gas mileage improves, wear and tear on the car and me improves too.   I lose nothing in quality and product guarantees are the same.  Returns, never had a problem.  And a save tons of time finding exactly what I want and the best possible price.
