How many Virginia governors have gone to jail? I wonder if it is more or less than my great state of Illinois. Unlike Illinois, Virginia has a firm Republican legislature and a good chance of turning red again with this years election. Though the Democrat elites have done their best to import as many votes as they could, this election is looking like a tight one.
Democrats are cheaters
More than 1,000 aliens and non-citizens voted in recent Virginia elections, according to a report published by the Virginia Voters Alliance.
That number represents figures from only 8 of 125 localities, so the problem is “exponentially worse.”
In some cases, aliens and permanent residents will register to vote and either admit on the form they are not citizens, or they will mislead, according to Christian Adams, general counsel for the foundation. Local officials can check each voter later by matching data from the Virginia driver’s license bureaus, where the aliens in question are usually likely not to mislead authorities on their status.
It’s how some of the non-citizens were caught. The report lists all of the 1,046 non-citizens by name.
The disclosure is a major problem for Virginia and the nation. One thousand votes or so is enough to swing a close election in the state. In 2013, the Democratic candidate for attorney general won by fewer than 1,000 votes.
It’s also not inconceivable that a presidential race could come down to 1,000 votes or less, as happened in Florida in 2000. Like Florida, Virginia is considered a swing state.
The Virginia Voters Alliance looked into the issue first with Alexandria, Virginia. The alliance noticed that the Northern Virginia city had more people registered to vote than eligible voters who lived there.
The alliance found 70 non-citizens had registered. The non-citizens had been purged from the voter rolls — but in some cases, had voted in the interim.
Adams said the watchdog group moved the investigation wider and soon met resistance. Adams said Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat and an old friend of Hillary Clinton, told a key staffer to advise officials in other Virginia localities to ignore Adams’ requests for information.
The problem of non-citizens is likely worse than what the alliance found in eight Virginia localities.
“The problem is most certainly exponentially worse because we have no data regarding aliens on the registration rolls for the other 125 Virginia localities,” the report reads. “Even in this small sample, when the voting history of this small sample of alien registrants is examined, nearly 200 verified ballots were cast before they were removed from the rolls. Each one of them is likely a felony.”
But remember: there’s no evidence of voter fraud.
Mr. Gillepsie has a shot
The people of Virginia have been beat up. And while Mr. Gillepsie is not the perfect change that I would chose, he’s a good deal better than McAufille and Northam. The current populist pressure is sure to keep him in line. The media of coarse is playing their parts as the Democrat’s number one fan, and as such they make it seem that Gillepsie is the 5th coming of Hitler this year.
Suspicion of Government was never something that was supposed to be rare for the American people. In fact we were founded on the belief that one should inherently be suspicious of government. What we hear everyday from our media however, suspicion sounds suspiciously like schizo-paranoia.
As long as a media like this exists, it’s important that citizens like you and me do everything in our power to counteract all the disinformation designed to manipulate us into irrationality.
It’s hard when the odds are so stacked. When you google to learn but only come across pages and pages of media lies. Truly, it’s amazing that Donald Trump won the election when there are very few places that give him any positive coverage.
So we have to spread the word. I don’t remember a time in my life where each political race was so important. Virginia is in the midst of a Gubernational election. As their current corrupt DINO Governor Terry McAufille is facing possible jail time, two new players are in the game.
In the one corner we have Ralph Northam, a man who conveniently left Justin Fairfax off the his pamphlet to appease rural Virginians’. As you can see Fairfax is black and political pandering goes both ways apparently. Racist when you got to be, and a SJW when you need that extra push.
On the other we have our very own Rocky, Mr. Ed Gillespie whom President Trump has Twitter endorsed. I’m sure that Democratic elites everywhere were hoping that the Charlottesville mess would discourage voters everywhere from touching a Trump nominee with a ten foot poll. How sadly these delusional little shits were mistaken.
Though Trump’s base are sure to be skeptical as he is the former chairman of the Republican National Committee and White House adviser to former President George W. Bush. He also helped Newt Gingrich fashion the party’s “Contract With America” that helped to usher in a Republican House majority in 1994.
Ed Gillespie ran for US Senate in 2014, and nearly defeated Sen. Mark Warner, whom everyone had deemed invincible. Warner was double digits ahead, yet triumphed by less than one percent election night. Today, Gillespie is running only single digits behind Ralph Northam, the current Lieutenant Governor who lists himself as a veteran and pediatrician.
From Town hall:
While he has connections to the grassroots Republican base, he also has major connections to the GOP Establishment. He was the RNC Chairman. He’s also made millions in lobbying firms. Seeming to avoid controversy early on, Gillespie stressed economic issues up to the June primary, but began pivoting to culture war concerns during the general election. Those issues are resonating with the public. Unlike some Republicans, he has learned his lesson, paying attention to the concerns of his conservative base, not just the beltway.
Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail for the first time (publicly) since he left office with a rally to help Democrat Ralph Northam in Virginia’s closely watched race for governor. The focus of the rally was “the need for the next governor to create economic opportunity for all Virginians,” according to Northam’s campaign.
The former president won Virginia both in 2008 and 2012. Northam will need many of Obama’s supporters, particularly blacks voters, to turn out in the off-year election in order to be successful against Republican Ed Gillespie.
McAuliffe’s approval rating is above water and the state has a low unemployment rate of just 3.8 percent. But Democrats expect the race to tighten in battleground Virginia, and they can’t afford to lose one of just 15 governorships they hold — especially in the only Southern state Hillary Clinton carried last year and where Donald Trump remains unpopular.
Mr. Gillepsie sees where the wind is blowing, and it’s not a moderate wind. Republicans have been leaving the party for years, with many changing to independent. The change is the product of a movement of conservatives away from the Republican Party.
With 8.1 million residents, Virginia is the 12thmost populous state in the union. But its part-time lawmakers have one of the shortest meeting schedules in the country — 30 days in odd-numbered years and 60 days in even-numbered years.
Corruption is deep in Virginia, let’s give Gillepsie to fix it.
