Enrique Salazar Ortiz, 63, an illegal immigrant, has been voting in American elections since 1994.

He has pleaded guilty to “fraud and identity theft charges after admitting he used a citizen’s identity to vote,” reports San Antonio Express-News.

Ortiz did not say how many times he committed voter fraud but confirmed 2016 was one such occasion.

Federal agents raided Ortiz’s suburban San Antonio home in August 2017 after his application to renew a passport with Vargas’ name was flagged for potential fraud. Investigators realized two men who did not look alike were using the same name and date of birth. Ortiz told agents he purchased documents with Vargas’ name for $20 and has used it ever since. He obtained a passport with the information in 2006, which he used to travel, and admitted to voting in the last presidential election, records show.

“When asked if he had ever voted, at first Mr. Salazar Ortiz was hesitant to answer, but when confronted with voting records, he indicated that he voted in the most recent election,” according to his plea deal cited by the News.

Valley Central notes:

Authorities say Salazar had assumed the name of a former San Antonio resident, Jesse H. Vargas Jr.

Vargas Jr., 57, apparently left Bexar County as a teenager.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, says there’s no widespread voter fraud in America.

Unfortunately, numerous case of voter fraud have recently come to light.

From Breitbart:

Thursday on “CBS This Morning,” former Vice President Joe Biden dismissed the notion that voter fraud was a problem in the United States.

Biden told co-host Norah O’Donnell in an interview that efforts to combat voter fraud were nothing more than an attempt to suppress the vote and when asked if he thought there was a “voter suppression” effort underway.

“Absolutely,” he replied. “I don’t know the exact number, but somewhere in the order of 77, in the last couple of years, pieces of legislation have been introduced in state legislatures to restrict the right to vote. We should have automatic registration. We should have it allowing everybody to vote.”

Four women have been busted for a massive voter fraud scheme in Texas. They are facing multiple felony counts.

The women preyed on the elderly.

From Star-Telegram:

Members of an organized voter fraud ring have been arrested and indicted on charges they targeted and, in one case stole, the votes of elderly voters on the city’s north side.

Four people were arrested — Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra — after being indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud, according to a statement from the Texas Attorney General’s Office.

These people allegedly were paid to target older voters on the north side “in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates in 2016,” the statement read.

“Ballots by mail are intended to make it easier for Texas seniors to vote,” Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “My office is committed to ensuring that paid vote harvesters who fraudulently generate mail ballots, stealing votes from seniors, are held accountable for their despicable actions and for the damage they inflict on the electoral process.”

A New Jersey woman was also just busted for voter fraud, per Daily Signal:

Voter fraud is an ongoing problem in America. For those who doubt, look no further than a new case out of New Jersey.

On Thursday, federal officials charged a New Jersey woman with “promoting a voter bribery scheme.” Lizaida Camis allegedly offered Hoboken voters $50 in exchange for applying to receive mail-in ballots, and then casting them in favor of candidates for whom Camis worked.

Camis’ alleged fraud took place in 2013, but the filing of charges offers a timely reminder of the pressing need to ensure the integrity of our elections.

The aforementioned voter fraud examples are merely two of far too many.

Inefficiency and ‘Too Big To Fail’ Government Contracts Sting The Taxpayer

There are many problems with government contracting. The Federal News Network identified one problem when they reported on May 11, 2021, “The longer it takes the Biden administration to get its final fiscal year 2022 appropriation request out, the worse it’ll be for federal contracting. By one account, the final numbers might not get until February.” That is February of 2022, because they will likely not finish work on appropriations until the end of the year while the Fiscal 2022 year starts on October 1, 2021. Inefficiently usually leads to taxpayers paying more for less. There is another problem for the taxpayer, and it is enormous long term federal contracts that are on autopilot. During the 2008 financial crisis, Americans learned the danger of “too big to fail.” Banks that had lent foolishly had to be bailed out at great expense. Well, these days we are relearning the lesson of “too big to fail.” Except now the government has put itself on the hook. The issue this time revolves around federal government contracting, especially at the Pentagon. The problem begins in a different era, the 1990s. Back then, the United States was the unchallenged and unchallengeable power. The Soviet Union had collapsed, and the rest of the world was either allied with us our cowed by us. At that time, the goal was to develop a new generation of weapons that would expand military dominance for decades to come. The federal treasury was overflowing, and money was no object. Leaders decided to back the F-35, a Joint Strike Fighter that would, supposedly, be able to replace jets used by the Air Force, the Navy, and the Marine Corps. A big problem with the plan is that it relied, as so many government projects do, on a single contractor. The entire F-35 contract went…

Army Releases Woke Lesbian Recruitment Video, But Still Finds Woman Can’t Pass Fitness Test

The U.S. Army released a new woke recruitment video to appeal to lesbians.

The U.S. Army released a new woke recruitment video to appeal to lesbians, yet the Pentagon has admitted that female soldiers still can’t pass the fitness test, even after they were downgraded. The Army released its animated advertisement featuring a girl raised by two pride parade-marching, lesbian mothers. Per the Washington Examiner: The advertisement, titled Emma: The Calling, showed a girl’s childhood before she joined the Army as a Patriot Missile operator. The two-minute video followed Emma while she watched her two mothers get married, joined a sorority at the University of California-Davis, and fought for “freedom” at a young age by participating in a gay rights parade. “It begins in California with a little girl raised by two moms. Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equality. I like to think I’ve been defending freedom from an early age,” she said in the advertisement, which was posted to YouTube on May 4. “When I was 6 years old, one of my moms had an accident that left her paralyzed,” she continued. “Doctors said she might never walk again, but she tapped into my family’s pride to get back on her feet, eventually standing at the altar to marry my other mom.” WATCH: https://youtu.be/MIYGFSONKbk Meanwhile, the Pentagon has had to admit that nearly half of the female soldiers have failed the already weakened Army Combat fitness Test during the first half of 2020. https://twitter.com/StevenBeynon/status/1391753154279231494 The ACFT consists of six different events, and the test has been changed since last year. Women are now allowed to skip the leg tucks, which had a 41 percent fail rate. Even though the test has been weakened, 44 percent of women still failed the test in the first half of the year. The Army had already…
