Judicial Watch is at it again. Be careful in your districts. An organized 45 "voter fraud" patrol

Thank god our election officials in Montgomery County MD are smart enough to handle them:

BOE Banner Head
On June 19, 2017, the Montgomery County Board of Elections voted to endorse the following statement from Board President James Shalleck. The statement is in response to issues raised by Judicial Watch to the Maryland State Board of Elections regarding maintenance of the Montgomery County voter registration records.
Statement by the Montgomery County Board of Elections in Response to Judicial Watch Letter:

Jim Shalleck, President of the Board

The Maryland Office of the Attorney General has responded to an inquiry by Judicial Watch that incorrectly suggested that Montgomery County has more registered voters than citizens of voting age. Montgomery County has at all times followed federal and state law in maintaining an accurate voter registration list, while carefully protecting the rights of those eligible to vote.

Judicial Watch’s analysis is flawed in several respects:

It does not take into account the thousands of 16- and 17-year-olds pre-registered to vote under Maryland law and not included by definition in the census data for Montgomery County’s population age 18 and above. Montgomery County has a robust Future Vote program to involve students in the community, resulting in thousands of students registering to vote, but who are not eligible to vote yet.

It does not take into account thousands of people serving in the military, governmental agencies, or non-governmental organizations who are living overseas (and therefore may not be counted as Montgomery County residents by the Census), but are legally registered to vote in Montgomery County and retain their voting status here under federal and state law.
Judicial Watch may have underestimated Montgomery County’s current voting age population by comparing the 2016 voter registration numbers with the five-year Census estimate for the 2011-2015 American Community Survey, rather than using the one-year Census estimate for 2015 (the most recent available year). Census data shows that Montgomery County’s population has increased every year since 2010, and the voting-age proportion of the population during that time period also has increased. Thus, a voting-age population estimate based on a five-year period ending in 2015 could significantly undercount the population.
It incorrectly asserts that Montgomery County’s number of registered voters suggests that we are not conducting reasonable voter registration maintenance as mandated under the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA). On the contrary, the Board of Elections’ staff performs year-round voter list maintenance following the NVRA and Maryland guidelines, regulations and laws. Board staff works through returned mail from previous elections, collaborates with other States with voter data exchanged through the non-profit organization Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and obtains information from governmental agencies, such as the Jury Commission, to update the Boards of Elections’ voter files. The Board has legally cancelled thousands of voters from the rolls who are no longer eligible to vote in Montgomery County. Between June 2015 and April 2017, 75,980 individuals had their voter registration canceled or removed in Montgomery County because they were no longer eligible to vote in this county. That process began and was no different during the previous four years.

As federal courts have acknowledged, the NVRA strictly limits removals of voters from the voter rolls unless the voter confirms the change or a waiting period has elapsed, which can result in a higher number of registered voters until they qualify for removal. For example, between June 2015 and April 2017 Montgomery County moved 59,120 voters from an active to inactive status - - a necessary step under federal law in many instances before a voter’s registration can be canceled only if he/she confirms the change or does not vote in two successive federal elections.

The Montgomery County Board of Elections takes very seriously its obligation to maintain an accurate and up-to-date voter registration list under the law. We will continue to aggressively perform list maintenance in conformance with federal and state law, while carefully protecting the rights of those eligible to vote.

J Johnson up testifying as GOP attempts to blame, again, Obama for Russian hacking.

It's worth a watch. Learn what we are up against and keep in mind the Russian bots that were used.

Be WARNED again! It seems we are forgetting. The war is alive and well, just listen to the GOP on

cable now. And they are going full steam ahead. They know our focus is short and the divide is real.

They know and they don't care because it helps them!

It's the job of our spokespeople to stop the media from their downer mantras today.

The cable news has already begun to beat down the Democratic achievements in the special elections. Our spokespeople need to get out there and strike a healthy hopeful note and take the offensive stance that we are coming after those GOP seats in 2018 and that we will win most of them. At least sound like we are on the offense. We allow the media to frame our message and our spirits. STOP IT! Perez needs to contact the Dem spokespeople with clear marching orders to take the positive offense.

All the Democrats have to do is stick together and vote.

Get rid of the notion of purist progressive bashing of the party loyalists and stop calling them and painting them as "elitist"
and think about winning. We out number them. What they have over us is that they stick together. They did that in 2016 and we battled to destroy ourselves from within. We must stick together. We must be true Democrats. We have the numbers and we do have the message is only we sing from the same page and take it to the media that they must give us the time and fair play that they did not give us in 2016. We do not need outsiders, our tent is and was already big. It was detrimentally split in 2016, not by Hillary, but by her detractors.

Remember, lots of GOP voter did not like Trump BUT THEY VOTED FOR HIM. They put their mistrust and dislike aside and WON when they should not have. I blame the divide. It will always be that way if we don't stop sacrificing the good going for the perfect. That is what the GOP has over us. That is what they always had over us. WE NEED TO WAKE THE FUCK UP!! We are our own worse enemies. Months after the election that they won, they are still badgering Hillary and Nancy and that is what they use as glue to hold it together against us. They do not let up. They hold their noses and vote the party!

Just even think about how many Dems treated Obama because he wanted to get something done with healthcare. I remember how he was cursed for not going all the way with universal health care and getting nothing. When will we learn? We are the party with compassion and soul and patriotism. We are the party for inclusion and have worked hard for policies to benefit working men and women for decades. We spend too much time eating our own instead of building up those who are working for our good and not tearing us down. I am proud of Nancy. I am proud of Hillary. I am proud of the so-called "establishment" who carried the message of civil rights, voter rights, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Comp., Workplace safety, Family Leave, Consumer protection and all the other socially responsible programs. But what do we do...join the opposition and shamelessly call for Hillary to shut up and sit down. Bemoan Nancy as too old and out of touch when she has accomplished so much for us in Congress.

Tonight my family in GA made me do angry I could spit. They have begun to sound like the opposition. Sure we can always improve on our party but not by asking loyal Democrats to get lost. WTF is wrong with people?

Shake-up in Saudi Arabia: Wait for the war...


This is the key to keeping the masses quiet: "In celebration of the news, King Salman ordered the reinstatement of all benefits and allowances for government employees that had been curbed by austerity measures, and granted additional days off for the upcoming Eid holiday that marks the end of Ramadan."

Looks like they are fighting the Civil War again and this time they are winning.

Removed the sheets and put on suits and went to the state houses and local councils.

Just spoke to a couple of my cousins in GA. Nothing surpasses the vote like a cop murdering an innocent black man and getting off totally free. Take it to the bank.

"What's use in voting?" "They won't count our votes anyway," "As long as Trump is President, it will only get worse."

That's what I heard tonight. I am sickened.

Just what did Trump do to get prisoner home from NK?

I am hearing his praises from the parents of dead teen and the media. I am still at a loss to understand what he did that Obama didn't do. And why are they saying the Obama administration did nothing to get US prisoners home?

Trump administration must have been told to tamp down on the latest Russian spat over Syria.

Otherwise, this story should be all over the news. If Obama were President it would be.

Someone who knows please give me the skinny on Bitcoin. To buy or not to buy. Limited funds.
