Voter Fraud?

The smug, corrupt, progressive, elite mainstream media howled with laughter when President Trump complained of massive voter fraud and ordered an investigation. The Democrats made the rounds on the cable news shows mocking President Trump and suggesting that he was insane - and they made the point that no investigation was necessary.

What a contrast from their support for Communist/Green Party Candidate Jill Stein who demanded recounts after the election of Donald Trump. Stein who didn't carry 1 county in the USA had very little standing, but the Democrats and the corrupt, elite, mainstream media stood solidly behind her. You don't see the same support for a nationwide investigation into voter fraud...and it gives me pause.

This article is making the rounds today and you can give it whatever weight that you'd like to assign it:
(Washington Times) Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from noncitizens on Nov. 8, an approximation far short of President Trump’s estimate of up to 5 million illegal voters but supportive of his charges of fraud. 
Political scientist Jesse Richman of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, has worked with colleagues to produce groundbreaking research on noncitizen voting, and this week he posted a blog in response to Mr. Trump’s assertion. 
Based on national polling by a consortium of universities, a report by Richman said 6.4 percent of the estimated 20 million adult noncitizens in the U.S. voted in November. He extrapolated that that percentage would have added 834,381 net votes for Clinton, who received about 2.8 million more votes than Mr. Trump.
The truth is that nobody knows how much voting fraud took place. There are counties in the USA where 100% of the vote is always cast for the Democrat (Pennsylvania comes to mind). That's statistically unlikely. 

Historically American Mexican groups such as Hermindad, operating in Orange County, California, openly registered every single illegal alien that they could reach to vote in local or national elections. Investigations by the Orange County District Attorney's Office into these corrupt practices twenty years ago led to conclusive proof of widespread voter fraud. Is it happening today? Does a bear crap in the woods?

The dead who vote 'early and often' in Chicago are a cliche but still, they vote. 

There are ways to fix the voter fraud problem and I suspect that President Trump's investigation will show enough fraud to require a fix. The Democrats, who historically benefit from voter fraud, are not interested in a fix or the requirement that people show citizenship documents in order to vote.

In Mexico you need a government issued voting card/ID card in order to cast a vote, and they punch your ID when you vote. Every few years you need a new card. If you don't vote at all in something like seven voting cycles, you lose your national identity card (required for a passport). Obviously the Mexicans take voting integrity a lot more seriously than the Americans do.

  1. Chicago. From experience. when I was a boy in 60, my father came home with $250 and 4 bags of groceries on election night. what a haul. I know as a fact from his own lips he voted over 200 times with dead people's voter ID. It really happened and no one will ever convince me the fraud isn't ten time worse today.

    I just didn't quite understand at the time why he was so proud of it, but he was a die hard Chicago Machine Democrat

    1. He needed a few bucks and some groceries. I get that. He was a dad with a family and Chicago is a machine city.

      The machine ultimately does not serve the public's best interest - and it pushed Barack into the White House.

      However maybe it's time to renew the examination of voter fraud and make it more difficult.

  2. Agree with Joseph. I grew up in the Chicago area (Joliet), and voter fraud was apparent in our city, too.

    1. Do you think that Trump can fix it?

      Maybe?

    1. They always fear revolution in Mexico and voting is nearly sacred there. Not here in the slightest.

    6.4% of 20 million is 1,280,000.
    834,381 is 65.19% of 1.28 million.
    Think Hillary only got 65% of the illegal vote? Me either.

    1. Hillary got 100% of the illegal vote. I doubt that there is a serious lack of consensus there.

  6. And the university retracted what they wrote when interviewed by ABCDeFG.

    I think President Trump should insist that all states must use voter ID. I think for a federal election that should be possible.

    And I think ALL ABSENTEE BALLOTS should be requited to be counted by every state, no matter who is leading. It boggles my mind that dead people can vote, when some living people don't get counted.

    I have no doubt that voter fraud is rampant, though I don't like to believe it.

    1. The investigation initiated by the President will begin to gather enough stats to force Congress to act...and the Dems will rue the day they scoffed at him and threw down on him over this.

    2. I think the Dems are going to rue everything and anything bad or disparaging they ever said against President Trump.

      This is a man that doesn't take BS from anybody, and holds everyone accountable for their job.

      I think the entire political establishment and all the ruling/power elite have just seen their worst nightmare come alive....
