Yes Virginia there is an answer to the DOJ


I just saw this over at Pajamas Media. It has been written by J Christian Adams, the whistleblower from the Department of Justice voter division (ok so I do not have it quite right but it is close enough!!).

Basically, what is under discussion is that Georgia and now Texas have been leading the way when it comes to challenging the authority of the Department of Justice on much needed electoral reforms. However, it seems that Virginia has backed off, rather than taking a lead from Georgia.

Rather than allowing the DOJ to have control over their programs, Georgia has sued and the DOJ has backed off. It seems that there is a way to defeat the rather useless and disgraceful Eric Holder. His department seems to back off when they are sued in relation to what is really a state matter.

There is a lot that can be done to reform the voter system and to control the fraud, but it is hard to make suggestions when our systems are so different.  One of the big differences is the way in which people are registered to vote. It is done by one body which has offices in each state.  We actually get the form from the post office and send it to a postal address. 

When we had the election last year, a group that is very similar to the Soros funded MoveOn.org and its manifestations sued to allow for people to sign on at the last minute as voters. The way it played out there were a few thousand in critical electorates and if these votes had been fully accepted they would have affected the results in some cases. However, their votes became provisional only, they were not counted until the people verified their information. I kept an eye on some electorates where there were provisional votes and one thing I noted was that most were rejected. I only remember that in one electorate that the votes were accepted. I guess you could say that the people making the provisional votes were not willing to send their corroborating information. I am assuming that it was an effort to cheat and sway the election result.  However, overall, if this was the case it failed!!

I think that there needs to be a better form of voter identification. Yes, even over here it is needed. How else can you distinguish between two people who have the same name? How else can you try and stop the voter fraud?

  1. Good Morning.
    I agree that registering to vote should be done by affirmative action indicating a real desire to participate (go to an office) and produce identification of residency and citizenship.

    A post just went up at FavStock (? don’t know much about them) that presents an opportunity to support Palin and Trump. http://www.favstocks.com/sarah-palin-strikes-again/1043486/

    Here is my post there:

    Sarah Palin is a fine, intelligent person. Trump has been right to bring up eligibility/natural born citizen issue.

    The issue with Obama not only involves the place of his birth but also conflicted allegiances vis-a-vis the citizenship of his father.

    Unfortunately, there is no Supreme Court decision that I know of where the Court addresses the specific question (in a case where it is factually necessary to the facts and issue presented) of who can and can’t be a Natural Born Citizen, other than in the penumbra of discussions/historical presentations in cases involving ordinary or naturalized citizenship.

    However, the relevant writings/common understandings that were available to the Founders and the ones that have been suggested that the Founders relied, suggest (as stated by Prof. Solum) that to be a natural born citizen requires being born in country to 2 parents who were citizens at the time of the person’s birth.

    The significance of the Constitutional provision containing both the terms Citizen and Natural Born Citizen indicates there is a difference in meaning. This has been recognized in several cases and writings. The reason for inclusion of the Presidential eligibility is also recognized as being the need for and/or fear of a person becoming President who did not have complete/sole allegiance to the new nation.


    Did you see that Trump had a meeting with a group that included a Rep. from Arizona and gave out some homework? Mr. Trump asked for information regarding the term “natural born citizen”. Trump also has his mother’s natualized citizenship as a possible springbroad should he decide to file a suit for a Declaratory Judgment indicating he (Trump) is eligible.

  2. I agree. In our country–the land of the free that made voting a right so long ago–we have taken that to the nth degree and allowed an anything goes policy for voting. Can’t discriminate you know. I can vote with no id required except matching my signature in a book from last year and they barely look at it. Yet there is no cry of discrimination when it comes to showing very strict forms of id to get a driver’s license. If you cannot prove where you live and who you are then you shouldn’t be allowed to vote. If you are not a taxpayer you shouldn’t be allowed to vote imo. It’s ridiculous how the voting is done here. It will never be without fraud of some sort (someone always finds a way) but it can be minimized if people just insist on laws to do just that. The Feds need to stay out of the states’ rights to their own election laws too.
