    “Georgia elections chief hints at organized effort behind ballot harvesting, registering noncitizens

    “What I found is we had 1,634 that were never put on the voter rolls, they were in the pending status, because they couldn’t prove their citizenship,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.”

    “eorgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said his office is investigating ballot harvesting and the registration of noncitizens to vote, both of which he suggests may have been orchestrated by third-party organizations.

    His office did a citizenship audit of Georgia’s voter rolls and found more than 1,600 noncitizens who tried registering to vote, Raffensperger told the John Solomon Reports podcast Tuesday.

    “[W]hat I found is we had 1,634 that were never put on the voter rolls, they were in the pending status, because they couldn’t prove their citizenship,” he explained. “That’s a felony in Georgia to even attempt to register if you’re a noncitizen. And that’s a one to 10-year prison term, and up to a $100,000 fine.”

    Raffensperger said his office sent the information they found to the state attorney general and local district attorneys, who will interview those who couldn’t prove their citizenship and ask them: “Did you do this on your own free will? Or were you put up by it by some third-party organization?”

    Through these investigations, Raffensperger said, that they will find out if there is “an organization that’s been really attempting to get noncitizens on the voter rolls in Georgia.”

    He noted that his office is currently defending state law that requires ID and citizenship checks for voters against Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action, Inc. group, which is suing Georgia, claiming that the law violates the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act.

    “[W]hen Stacey Abrams ran for governor four years ago, she talked about the blue wave,” Raffensperger recalled, “and she said, ‘That’s the people who are documented and undocumented,’ i.e., that means the noncitizens … she wanted them to be able to vote in our elections, and absolutely not. I’ve been pushing back on that. I think that’s an incredibly critical issue, not just for us here in Georgia, but for the entire country. Only American citizens should vote.”

    The secretary of state also addressed ballot harvesting, explaining how it can lead to voters being coerced to cast their ballots for certain candidates.

    “I think that we want people to freely express their choice when they vote, but you can end up with that whole process of voter coercion,” Raffensperger said. “Next thing you know, that’s someone that owns a company, he’s actually trying to coerce people and who they should vote for. Or if you’re in a union situation, then the union boss is coercing you and who to vote.”

    And their attempted end run around voters laws like Georgis’a….

    “Biden’s open border: One of the most successful voter drives in Democrats’ history

    Automatic registration would negate elements for criminal prosecution”

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/apr/26/bidens-open-border-one-of-the-most-successful-vote/

    “To fully understand how Democrats plan to turn America into a single-party state, take a look at two of their seemingly disparate actions shortly after President Biden’s inauguration.

    In Washington, Democrats immediately pushed legislation to fundamentally take over state-run elections to greatly loosen voter registration rules. While GOP senators stalled the bill in January, Democrats have vowed to enact the unprecedented federalization, somehow, someday.

    At the southern border, Mr. Biden has illegally opened the gates to just about anyone — be they drug and sex traffickers, or migrant job seekers, or sex offenders or other criminals. The brutal Mexican drug cartels are getting richer. Their Chinese-produced fentanyl is killing record numbers of Americans. Official count of people illegally entering the U.S. is in the millions in 2021-22 and will go even higher the rest of Mr. Biden’s term because he wants it to.

    Take the two separately or together — federalized ballot counting and opened borders — and you’ve got yourself a successful Democratic voter drive.

    “You know, 11 million people live in the shadows,” then-Vice President Biden said in 2014 of the U.S. illegal population. “I believe they’re already American citizens.”

    Candidate Biden urged foreign invaders to “surge” and promised them free stuff. His Department of Homeland Secretary chief has pledged not to deport illegals. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said illegals are free to roam the country. Mr. Biden is about to suspend a public health law that will result in a half-million illegal crossings in a matter of weeks, Republicans say.

    Democrats badly need more foreigners to vote. Polls show Hispanic citizens are drifting away from the Democratic Party’s sharp turn to the left. School kids are now one of liberals’ main targets as unionized teachers try to turn them into good little “wokes.”

    On the legislative end, the Democrats’ repackaged the “Freedom to Vote Act” this year. It would strip away enough safeguards to ensure that a significant number of noncitizens will get to vote, albeit illegally.

    To start with, the companion House-Senate measures would usher in a chaotic untested method for automatically registering voters, perhaps hundreds of thousands or more. Various government agencies and colleges would be mandated to flood state registrars with names from their databases, with orders to register them.

    It would also require national same-day registration and voting, something only 20 states allow now.

    The legislation says auto-registered people must be citizens, but the language is iffy on how that rule is enforced. If a noncitizen does vote and is caught, the person has near-blanket immunity from prosecution. This promise comes under the bill’s innocuous heading: “Protections for Errors in Registration.”

    I asked Hans von Spakovsky, The Heritage Foundation’s manager of its election law reform project, if the Freedom to Vote Act will, in fact, make it easier for noncitizens to vote.

    “The simple answer is ‘yes,’” he said, “because of the automatic voter registration requirement. The fact that a non-citizen got registered and voted can’t be used in a federal or state criminal prosecution, or any immigration proceedings, unless you can show he did so ‘knowingly and willfully,’ a very difficult standard to meet.”

    “All an alien has to do is say it was an ‘error’ on his part and he is home free. … Moreover, if he fails to check the box on the federal registration form where you are supposed to answer whether or not you are a citizen, this provision also gives you immunity from being prosecuted for registering as an alien in violation of the law. This provision will make it virtually impossible to go after aliens who illegally register and then vote.””

    “Report: Illegal Immigration Grew by One Million in Biden’s First Year, Costing Taxpayers $9.4 Billion

    Ending Title 42 will worsen the situation.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/04/report-illegal-immigration-increase-by-one-million-in-bidens-first-year-costing-a-taxpayer-9-4-billion/

    “The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) revealed that America saw illegal immigration increase “by approximately a million” during President Joe Biden’s first year.

    The increase costs taxpayers “an additional $9.4 billion.”

    States with the most illegal immigrants:

    California: 3.3 million
    Texas: 2.2 million
    Florida: 1.2 million
    New York: 1.1 million
    States with the fewest illegal immigrants:

    North Dakota: 6,000
    West Virginia: 6,000
    Fox News Digital received a copy of the report:

    The study estimates that there are approximately 15.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, up from 14.5 million in 2020. Other estimates have typically put that number at around 11 million for years, but immigration hawks have expressed skepticism that the number has stayed flat given the increased activity at the border.

    FAIR’s analysis also conducted a fiscal cost study, finding that illegal immigrants are imposing a net fiscal burden of at least $143.1 billion – an increase of $9.4 billion over 2020.

    The group puts the increase in population down to two factors – the first being the improvement of the U.S. economy as it re-opens after COVID-19.

    “Businesses are once again hiring, and many unscrupulous employers are using this as an opportunity to turn to reliably cheap labor to undercut the market and make up for lost profits resulting from economic shutdowns stemming from the pandemic,” the report says. “These unethical hiring practices occur even though millions of Americans remain unemployed or underemployed.””

    Democrats and RINOs who won’t do their jobs built this.

    “Conservatives Are Not Giving Spineless Leaders Any Second Chances”

    https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2022/04/28/conservatives-are-not-giving-spineless-leaders-any-second-chances-n2606374

    “Okay, you have every right to expect that, by now, anyone purporting to be a conservative thought leader – ugh, what a lame term – will be conservative woke, sometimes known as “based,” by now. There’s no excuse for still living in a Mitt Romney/Candy Crowley gimp cellar of crippling principles and principled failure. If you presume to lead us, you need to understand that we are in a life-or-death struggle to preserve our lives and liberty against a Marxist offensive unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, and that we need to fight back and win or go down in defeat. We’ve lost patience with the softcons, the surrendercons, and the sissycons who demonstrate that they do not. Just ask Kristi Noem, who waffled and lost her shot forever.

    This is all coming to a head again with the DeSantis-Disney war and the fight in conservatism over tactics and strategy. Let’s be clear before we proceed – we absolutely have to have a real debate about the new aggression that the vast majority of us believe is absolutely necessary to win this cultural war and preserve our liberty. What the combative mode people like me propose has potential downsides and there is a risk of abuse. We are conservatives, not libs, and we can have a debate – thanks to Elon Musk, we can have it in public on Twitter. Everyone who says “Let’s think this through” is not necessarily a simpering Jeb!-like wuss begging people who laugh at him for some claps. We have some good faith critics, and we need not fear an argument. But then, there are also a bunch of losers who never met a liberal they didn’t yearn to surrender to. The entire Bulwark staff and the other cruise ship cons are all deep in the libs’ trick bag, shaking their (former) conservative credentials on MSNBCNN and hoping credulous normies will take them home for the night.

    But the good faith critics need to get on the trolley after we pick a path forward. There’s no room for perpetual nags getting in the way of the infantry as we attack. Debates are fine, but debates must end up with a decision, and we expect the guys who lose the debate to fall in and pick up their weapon rather than go AWOL and show up on a panel with noted intern and monogamy aficionado Joe Scarborough explaining how masculine conservatism “is not who we are.”

    Well, fighting back hard is not who they are, that’s for sure. And we’re not having them purport to lead us anymore.

    After decades of incoming fire by an aggressive left that wants to convert us into impoverished, gender-baffled serfs with no ability to participate in our own governance, we have a right to demand that the people wanting to lead the fight actually understand that we are in a fight. And we are now demanding that. You better not waver, you better not waffle, not if you want a future in this GOP.

    Kristi Noem was weighed and found wanting. She sided with the Chamber of Commercecons against a law protecting girls’ sports and then lectured us that we were too dumb to understand how her total surrender was actually a massive victory. That’s when she lost her mojo – the based base was done with her. She’s toast – and if Trump or DeSantis or anyone else thinks about naming her VP (her anticipated presidential campaign is deader than CNN+), he’ll hear about it loud and clear.

    You can’t betray us anymore and survive. W did. Mitt did. McCain did. The cons have one thing in common with Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit – they’ve been cheated on a zillion times, but unlike that lumpy harpy (who recently, and utterly predictably, came out foursquare in favor of censorship, as losers often do) modern conservatives are refusing to tolerate adultery, in our case of an ideological nature.

    The guys at National Review – some of whom have always been pretty squared away – lost a ton of support by being soft on Trump and, more importantly, the populist Republican project that is now the mainstream of the GOP. Insiders say that the donations bottomed out as people got sick of a mostly united front on its masthead lecturing us on our moral obligation to let ourselves be runover by the leftist freight train. But look at how they, and how other formerly mellow cons, are reacting to Ron DeSantis’s glorious counter attack against woke corporations. Yes, there are still some writers on NR advocating surrender – they don’t call it that, but they are calling for us to keep doing what we’ve been doing for the last decade and we know that leads to defeat, so it is reasonable to extrapolate that they are willing to accept defeat before they dirty their dainty hands with the figurative blood of our enemies. But if you look closer, there are several writers who are not advocating rolling over. That’s good, because there’s no room in the new conservatism for perpetual critics who want to pesters us into the gulag.

    We need to debate the issue of how to fight back, but then we need to make a decision. And we all need to get on board once the decision is made. Passive aggression, much less aggressive aggression, of the kind Conservative, Inc., has been practicing ever since we fired them and hired Trump, is a NO-GO at this station.”

    “Inflation Is No Accident”

    https://compactmag.com/article/inflation-is-no-accident

    “President Biden is hanging on to Vladimir Putin for dear life. Earlier this month, he estimated that Vlad the Invader was responsible for 70 percent of the latest wave of inflation to roll over the United States. Back in December, the administration blamed “the greed of meat conglomerates” for Americans’ waning purchasing power. In November, it was the “anti-consumer behavior” of two oil companies. Annual inflation is 8.5 percent now, the highest rate since 1981, when Ronald Reagan replaced Jimmy Carter. Annual wage growth is 5.6 percent. The average American is losing ground.

    Allegations of Russian culpability are unconvincing. Inflation was already 8 percent when Biden announced he would ban the import of Russian oil and gas. Yes, gas prices have risen to an average of $4.17 a gallon, a 15 percent hike since February’s invasion. But they were already at $3.62 when the tanks started rolling—up 47 percent from the $2.46 Americans were paying when Biden assumed the presidency. Certainly, America isn’t the only country affected by the Ukrainian unpleasantness. There has been a flambée of inflation in France and an Anstieg in Germany, the latter dependent on Russia for a third of its oil and half its gas—yet inflation is higher here than there.

    The case that Biden is to blame is close to airtight. Inflation was at 1.7 percent when he came to office. The country was poised for a boom, with unemployment at 6.4 percent and falling rapidly. Biden’s proposal to turbocharge the economy with his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan (ARPA) raised alarms. In recessions and depressions, stimulus is supposed to fill an “output gap.” If struggling Business A can’t pay otherwise healthy Business B, Business B might go bankrupt, leaving Businesses C, D, and E unpaid and creating an avoidable contagion. Usually, policymakers are cautious about using stimulus. Progressive economists, for instance, often say that Barack Obama’s $900 billion stimulus didn’t cover the whole output gap of the 2009 finance crisis. True. But that doesn’t mean they are right when they say the stimulus was “too small.”

    “The Biden stimulus was wildly out of line with anything his predecessors had tried.”
    The Biden stimulus was wildly out of line with anything his predecessors had tried. The macroeconomist Olivier Blanchard, who led the International Monetary Fund during the Obama years, tweeted that Biden’s ARPA stimulus, on top of Trump’s, would add “four times the upper bound on the output gap.” Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers warned that the stimulus would be “on a scale closer to World War II levels than normal recession levels” and that it would “set off inflation pressures of a kind we have not seen in a generation.” Summers hearkened back to what he called the “guns and butter collision,” Lyndon Johnson’s attempt to wage both a military war in Vietnam and a “war on poverty” in America’s ghettos without raising taxes. The excesses involved were on the order of 1-2 percent of GDP, sufficient to stoke inflationary pressures that the Federal Reserve would still be fighting in the 1980s, a decade after LBJ’s death. Blanchard was incredulous: “If this increase in demand could be accommodated, it would lead to a level of output at 14 percent above potential,” he wrote. “This would not be overheating; it would be starting a fire.”

    Something interesting seems to have happened: The macroeconomic hotshots of the Biden administration, with their academic credentials and long executive-branch résumés, have presided over a deterioration of macroeconomic competence relative to the Trump administration’s business meatballs. Obama adviser Steven Rattner asked, “How could an administration loaded with savvy political and economic hands have gotten this critical issue so wrong?”

    They didn’t, really. Inflation is seldom an error—it’s usually a policy, if an unavowed one. This was the conclusion of one of the great social-science collaborations of the 20th century, led in the mid-1970s by the late Warwick economist Fred Hirsch and the Oxford sociologist John Goldthorpe, the findings of which were published in a book titled The Political Economy of Inflation (1978). Goldthorpe marveled at the “large array of emotionally colored terms [and] synonyms for ‘irrational’” that economists use when they are describing inflationary economic policies: inconsistent, woolly-minded, ostrich-like. Fixing inflation looks easy if you are an economist. Just remember that it is “always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon,” as Milton Friedman put it, and cut the money supply.

    “This response,” Goldthorpe wrote, “is intellectually safe, but at the same time intellectually feeble.” To say that inflation is a matter of too much money chasing too few goods is an account of how inflation happens. But what society desperately needed in the 1970s—and needs now—is an account of why inflation happened, of which political forces insisted on flooding the economy with money in the first place.”

    ” “Lightyear” is taking queer representation to infinity and beyond.

    On Wednesday, CinemaCon attendees got a sneak peek at the first 30 minutes of Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story” spinoff (in theaters June 17), which centers on cocky yet caring space ranger Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Chris Evans, taking over for Tim Allen from the first four “Toy Story” movies).

    A title card at the start of the film tells us that in 1995, little boy Andy got a toy Buzz: “It was from his favorite movie. This is that movie.”

    But in the first footage shown to movie theater owners at CinemaCon, it was a new lesbian character named Alisha Hawthorne (Uzo Aduba) that stole the show.”
