    Chelsea Clinton promoted an article claiming Tufts University and Harvard University researchers can show how voter ID laws are discriminatory using a simple algorithm.  Can the same math be used to claim photo ID laws for other things such as boarding an airplane, purchasing alcohol or opening a bank account are also discriminatory?

    The Democrats know that if strict voter ID laws are passed they will most likely never win an election ever again.

    OK then.  The next election in the USA, I am driving down (south) to Watertown,(one hour from my home…116.3 km, that is about 65 miles) and vote often, then drive to Syracuse and vote repeatedly or go to Albany or Rochester and do the same.  NO IDENTIFICATION REQUIRED.  lol.

    I am aiming for voting 200 times,

    as I have a fast car.

    And it is perfectly legal, according to Democrats.

    Guardian Writer Thinks Satan ‘Got Cool’ Because Of Chelsea Clinton.

    A Guardian writer (Joshua Gill) said that the Church of Satan “got cool” thanks to Chelsea Clinton and others’ media attention, proposing the religion as the “spiritual antidote to the Trump era.”
    Stuart Jeffries claimed that progressive politics and social media promotion like Clinton’s New Year tweet has made Satanism a popular movement for young, anti-Trump liberals, especially artists. Jeffries lamented Clinton’s denial of practicing satanism, and said he hoped that her denial wasn’t real.

    In a 2 January 2018 Twitter thread, Chelsea Clinton wished the Church of Satan a Happy New Year.

    I read Anton LaVey’s  “The Satanic Bible” in 1970 and found it intriguing and original and without the horror one would expect, and I never forgot it.

    Oh, she’s a believer.

    Ivanka Trump wrote a very nice pro-Oprah tweet! 2020 is just around the corner…

    The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate of the 2016 presidential election, shows Trump at a pretty healthy 45 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove. Better still, the president has been in the mid-forties going back to December 22.

    I don’t trust Rasmussen Reports. Back in 2008, it took until October for Rasmussen to come up with a poll report showing Barack Obama ahead in bellwether Ohio. This was after nearly every other poll already had him ahead—and for some time before that. Ohio, which has carried for every presidential winner with an unbroken streak dating back to 1964, did flip Democratic for Barack Obama. His margin was +4.58 percentage points. Rasmussen, before October, had goofy polls on the state that even once reported John McCain +10. (In 2004, George W. Bush won a Republican hold of that state by +2.11 while his popular-vote win was +2.46.)

    The polls from Election 2016 were embarrassing. No argument there.

    Depending on who you look at, whether there is or isn’t trust, a lot of people just look at the polls aggregation from RealPolitics.com. (The latest is Trump at 39 percent.)

    What I have noticed is that Donald Trump’s job approval has been a constant in the 30s. (For any in the 40s, he is still under by at least –10 points.) Gallup, in particular, had a poll report on December 4, 2017 which I think says much of what is likely to manifest with the midterm elections of 2018.

    Snapshot: Trump Approval Ties Weekly Low, at 35%

    By Frank Newport (12.04.2017)
    http://news.gallup.com/poll/223253/snapshot-trump-approval-tied-lowest-weekly-average.aspx

    Republicans’ approval of Trump has been at 78% in each of the three weeks he averaged 35% approval. These three 78% weekly readings are the lowest of Trump’s term among his party, significantly below the average 83% weekly job approval among Republicans since Trump took office.

    Democrats’ approval rating for Trump remains in the single digits, at 7% last week, while independents’ approval is at 32%.

    This indicates Trump’s Republican Party doesn’t have enough back support to win seat gains in 2018. The Democrats’ numbers are similar to presidential elections. But, the Republican support is a severe underperformance. The independents, at just 32 percent approval, indicates that—in a two-party vote—they would prefer the Democrats.

    What this is saying is that a midterm wave election looks to be taking shape. This puts the Democrats in position to flip the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, and a majority number of governorships. (It also says something that the majority of congressional retirements are from the Republican Party.)

    Midterm and presidential elections are not the same. There is somewhere around a 30-percent dropoff in participation. (That is, comparing votes cast nationally for U.S. House in presidential-vs.-midterm elections.) So, this is just 2018.

    Issa becomes second California Republican to retire this week as Democrats look to reclaim U.S. House

    By Sarah D. Wire and Christine Mai-Duc (01.10.2018)
    http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-issa-retire-20180110-story.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+latimes%2Fafrica+%28L.A.+Times+-+Africa%29

    Vista Republican Darrell Issa will not run for a 10th term in Congress, he announced Wednesday morning.

    Issa became the second California Republican to retire this week. On Monday [01.08.2018], fellow Southern California Republican Rep. Ed Royce announced he would not seek reelection.

    Beyond shaking up the California political landscape, the two retirements are a signal that the GOP fears a Democratic wave election that could sweep them from power this fall.

    Royce and Issa represented districts that are changing demographically to include more Latino and Asian voters, and Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in each district in the 2016 presidential election.

    Ok so Donald dumpsterfire called them shitholes but yet fails to realize that is exactly what he is and what his entire Presidency is. Honestly, I hope his supporters realize he is a racist POS sooner than later.

    Canadians Hit With Huge Tax Hike, As Trudeau Breaks Another Campaign Vow

    Canadian PM Justin Trudeau (progressive liberal) performed the oldest magic trick in the book – pay attention to this hand while I do something else with the other – when he quietly increased the amount of tax Canadians will pay by an average of $2,200 per year, while publicly claiming to be working to reduce taxes.

    What has already been implemented will result in over 92% of all families with children in Canada paying higher taxes and they’ll be paying on average $2,200 more per year.”  A true progressive liberal sh*thole.  This is what Hillary would have done, had she won.  And now Americans get a tax break…so unfair.

    And you are not allowed to question a liberal. Why? Because their brains are programmed to follow a specific algorithm, and any deviation from the predetermined logic they were given causes their neurons to freeze up and explode.

    Hypocrite Hillary stated:

    “The anniversary of the devastating earthquake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America’s commitment to helping our neighbors.”

    LOL

    “Clinton was responsible for doing things a lot of the Haitian people are not happy with,” Trump stated. “Taxpayer dollars intended for Haiti and the earthquake victims went to a lot of the Clinton cronies.”
    During a Town Hall in Miami, Trump also heard criticisms from former Senate President of Haiti, Bernard Sansaricq, who called for an audit of the Clinton Foundation.
    “In 2010, the earthquake of Haiti, not only American taxpayers, but the whole world has given billions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation for the Haitians. Not even two percent of that money went back to Haiti,” Sansaricq told Trump in a face-to-face meeting.

    So where is the 98%?   Not too hard to figure out, is it?

    Congratulations US Liberal Mainstream Media!… You Are Now Considered More Biased than Pravda

    It took a lot of time, hard work and treasure but they did it!
    Today the US mainstream liberal media is considered more biased than any other country — including the historic Pravda news agency!

    They beat out Russia’s Pravda, China News and Aljazeera — And it wasn’t even close!
    The US liberal mainstream media is today considered more biased than any others!
    FAKE NEWS IS KING IN AMERICA!
    It took a year of looking for the elusive Trump-Russia collusion that really solidified it in the minds of Americans.
    But they did it!
    According to the latest Pew Research poll the US media is less trusted than media in any other country including Russia, China and other sh*tholes.

    It is just like infant mortality rates, education, health care, infrastructure and many others, the where USA is sucking hind tit.  It is a sad state of affairs…epistemophobia runs deep,

    Epistemophobia is defined as the morbid and irrational fear of knowledge or the fear of wisdom. People with this phobia could fear knowledge or wisdom in general, or only certain types. For example, some people may be afraid of learning anything knew, while others may just fear only one subject.

    This fear is also very prevalent in those with other psychological disorders.  Examples of epistemophobes:   SJWs, snowflakes, progressives, most Democrats, communists, anarchists and a slew of others with their heads deep in their sh*tholes.
