Massive fraud revealed but Dems happy voter panel died


Frank Holmes

The Democrats started out the new year by destroying one of Donald Trump’s most important efforts: They killed the national panel investigating voter fraud.

After he beat the Clintons’ dirty elections machine, Trump promised to restore integrity to the vote from Maine to California.

But Democrats know if the feds crack down on voter fraud, they can’t win another election…because they’ll all be in jail.

Instead, 14 states stonewalled the bipartisan panel chaired by Vice President Mike Pence – the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity – and refused to turn over the voter records it needed to root out fraud and abuse.

The Democrats told Trump: If you don’t like it, sue us!

Unfortunately, Trump – or Pence – threw in the towel. “Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today I signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission,” the president announced Jan 3.

Trump was boiling mad at the decision, tweeting:


“Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D.

As Americans, you need identification, sometimes in a very strong and accurate form, for almost everything you do.....except when it comes to the most important thing, VOTING for the people that run your country. Push hard for Voter Identification!”

The liberals breathed a sigh of relief and gloated over their victory. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the panel “a front to suppress the vote,” and claimed it just spread “dangerous and baseless claims” of voter fraud.

The mainstream media insisted that the panel closed because it couldn’t find any evidence of wrongdoing. As usual, the liberal media lied through their teeth.

The president’s panel investigated “voter impersonation, vote buying, noncitizen voting, dead voters, felon voting, fraudulent addresses, registration fraud, elections officials fraud, and duplicate voting,” according to the Government Accountability Institute, which testified at one of the group’s meetings.

Here are some of national vote fraud panel’s most explosive findings:

The voting dead:  Investigators looked at voters’ birthdates and found that 45,880 votes in the 2016 election were cast by people who would have been at least 115 years old on election day.

Some 45 people voted, even though they were born before the year 1700!

Either there’s widespread voter fraud, or the zombie apocalypse began in the ballot box!

Underage voters: The age problem worked both ways: 292 minors voted even though they were under the age of 18.

More registered voters than adults: 7 states and Washington, D.C. have more registered voters than the number of adults legally eligible to vote. (Alaska, California, Colorado, D.C., Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, and Michigan.)

Voting multiple times: The Government Accountability Institute found 8,471 cases of duplicate voting in just 21 states. A nationwide sweep would have uncovered at least 45,000 cases of people voting in more than one city or state.

Thousands of phony addresses and names: More than 15,000 other people registered to vote using illegal addresses, like P.O. boxes, stores, and public buildings. 9,539 of those people voted in the general election.

The Rhode Island secretary of state’s office told investigators outright that it would approve a voter registration form submitted by John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt – even if it listed “a residential address that was a commercial office building, no driver’s license, (and) no Social Security number.”

These are just some of the biggest outrages exposed by the panel. They don’t include the other known instances of voter fraud.

The highly respected Pew Research found that 24 million voter registrations – one-in-8 of all U.S. registered voters – are inaccurate. There are 1.8 million dead people registered to vote. And 2.75 million people are registered to vote in more than one state.

Nor does this list include instances of abuse and lawbreaking that news outlets reported by news outlets like The Horn News. People who aren’t even U.S. citizens voted 7,474 times in the swing state of Virginia alone.

After 8 years of a president who did everything he could to support voter fraud, it’s refreshing to see President Trump go after lawlessness, fraud, and vote-rigging.

Trump is right that we need strong voter ID laws that require a photo ID, proof of residence, systems to prevent people from registering in two places at once, and guarantees that no one who votes is older than the Titanic.

Unfortunately, shutting down this voter fraud panel will be used as a weapon against any real reforms. The Democrats are already saying that the president had to shut down his own panel for lack of evidence.

The good news is that Trump has promised the DHS will look at all this evidence and decide where, when, or if it will begin prosecuting.

If he wants to save America, he needs to start convicting corrupt election officials for vote fraud immediately, nationwide, and with no leniency. After a few dozen convictions, the Democrats won’t be able to pretend that there isn’t really a problem.

Lock them up!
