Amid National Turmoil, DHS Secretary Ensures Mundane Midterm

Kirstjen Nielsen has a powerful message for Americans as they prepare to hit the polls.

2018 election

Americans the nation over are living on the edge of their seats, so to speak, as the national mood turns ever more tense by the hour.

Of course, we can thank the mainstream media for a great deal of this inner turmoil and our feelings of impending doom.  You can’t take a peek at a 24-hour news station without seeing a multitude of chyrons, graphics, and assorted distorted faces, all counting down the hours until Americans cast their ballot and begin to stare down the possibilities of the next 2 years.

For the democrats, a big win could signal the end of the Trump Era with impeachment looming on the horizon of the half-drained swamp.  For the republicans, their focus is on maintaining in the face of a political storm the likes of which Washington has never seen.

No fear, says the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, however.  Things will be just fine.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Friday she believes the midterm elections will be the “most secure election in the modern era” but told Fox News in an exclusive interview that “everything is on the table” if others try to meddle with the vote.

In New York City for a cyber security event at the Council on Foreign Relations, Nielsen said the government is in a “tremendously different place” than in 2016, when the Russians attempted to interfere in the presidential election.

“I do think it’s safe to stay this will be the most secure election in the modern era,” Nielsen said. “We are in a tremendously different place than we were in 2016 in terms of partnerships with state and locals and everything they have done to secure their infrastructure.”

Pressed on whether a cyber response is being readied by the United States if attacked, Nielsen said, “Everything is on the table. I think the president has made it very clear if we are attacked we will defend ourselves so every element of power that we have available to us will be considered in terms of our response.”

Concerns over election hacking have been heightened in recent years due to democratic fear mongering on the subject of Russia.

Ironically, those concerns do not seem to translate into the broader issues of voter fraud, to which the democratic response has often been indifference.

George Conway Goads Justin Amash with Pre-Praise for Potential POTUS Run

The ‘resistance’ is growing bolder by the minute.

Justin Amash

President Trump is facing adversity like no other President before him, and there’s good reason for this. No, it’s not his alleged shortcomings that are to blame; it’s the fact that he is still very much an outsider in the world of national politics.  Of course, this was a purposeful choice by the American people who have long been under the thumb of career politicians, many of them millionaires, who have taken their role as “public servants” and transformed it into an indoctrination into the ruling class. Which is precisely why we rebelled against the British so many years ago…but that’s a diatribe for another time. Trump has gotten under the skin of the Washington establishment in ways that few others have, and certainly more than any other President in recent memory. Even the husband of one the President’s closest advisers is counting himself among the “resistance”. Attorney George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, declared Tuesday that a primary challenge by Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) against President Donald Trump in 2020 would be a “supreme act of patriotism.” “This would be a supreme act of patriotism by Rep. Amash,” Conway, a frequent Trump critic, tweeted in response to an article shared by Reason editor Robby Soave about Libertarians and Never Trump Republicans urging Amash to run for the White House. Amash is the only republican to have called for the impeachment of President Trump, and the idea of both a primary challenge to Trump and a run as the Libertarian candidate in 2020 have been floated as possibilities. Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld has also declared his interest in running a primary campaign against the President.

Nevada Goes for The Jugular with ‘Popular Vote’ Bill

There are serious concerns about the move – concerns that conservatives in New York State and California have been warning us about for decades.

Nevada

We all remember that one kid in school who would change the rules to whatever game you were playing whenever they were losing. It seemed to always be the most prevalent in the game of Monopoly, where the “house rules” were more malleable than Play-Doh in August in St. Augustine.  When and where hotels could be built was always a contentious battle for the disadvantaged, regardless of whether or not this disadvantage was self afflicted.  Then there were the unseemly declarations regarding free money, jail time, etc. In other words, some people just can’t stand to lose, and they lash out in unhealthy ways when that fate befalls them. Such seems to be the case these days with the democrats as well, who are still reeling from their electoral evisceration at the hands of Donald Trump back in 2016. Now, after being bested through the electoral college, a great many anti-Trump organizations are pushing to change the rules of the game. Nevada is just the latest to pontificate on just such an adjustment. Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, will consider signing a new bill that would require the state’s six Electoral College votes to be awarded to the winner of the national popular vote, rather than the winner of the state’s vote. The legislation would only take effect once states representing a majority of the nation’s 538 electoral votes agree to join. Thus far, the participating states or jurisdictions include: California (55), Colorado (9), Connecticut (7), Delaware (3), the District of Columbia (3),  Hawaii (4), Illinois (20), Maryland (10), Massachusetts (11), New Jersey (14), New Mexico (5), New York (29), Rhode Island (4), Vermont (3), Washington (12). These represent a total of 189 electoral votes. Most are solid “blue” states, but Colorado and New Mexico are considered swing states, albeit leaning Democratic.…
