More than 100,000 non-U.S. citizens are registered voters in Pennsylvania, according to testimony contained in a lawsuit demanding that the state admit its problems when it comes to non-citizen voting.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation argued that non-citizens have been voting in Pennsylvania for decades, and that problem has been evident in other states the organization has worked with—including New Jersey and Virginia.
But the state has not granted PILF’s open records requests to access the data at the root of the problem, the organization said in the lawsuit filed in federal court in Harrisburg.
“For months, Pennsylvania bureaucrats have concealed facts about non-citizens registering and voting — that ends today,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said.
Adams said the state already admitted that it allowed non-citizens renewing their driver’s licenses to have the opportunity to register to vote.
Pennsylvania officials, however, declined to comment on the lawsuit or the more than 100,000 non-citizen voters.
“We’re not going to comment on anything related to litigation,” said Wanda Murren, director of communications and press at the Pennsylvania Department of State.
Of the more than 100,000 non-citizen voters in Pennsylvania, one city commissioner found in September that at least 90 of those non-citizens registered to vote cast ballots in Philadelphia. Hundreds more non-citizens who did not vote were also on the voter rolls.
The PILF also went after a county in Texas for failing to release non-citizen voting records back in December.
Former President Barack Obama denied that his administration had any scandals that embarrassed him or his team.
It is unclear why Obama clarified that there were no scandals “that embarrassed us.”
“There were mistakes,” he admitted. “We’d screw up, but there wasn’t anything venal during eight years. I know that seems like a low bar, but you look at the presidency; that’s no small thing.”
Conservatives remember the Obama years differently, citing the Fast and Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, wiretapping journalists, the terror attacks in Benghazi, delivering pallets of cash to Iran, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server for government emails.
Obama’s speech at MIT was strictly off the record, but Reason acquired the audio.
The former president also insisted there was not much drama either, thanks to his leadership and organization skills.
“Typically speaking, you didn’t hear about a whole lot of drama inside our White House, and that was also rare,” he said.
But Obama failed to mention reports of his press secretary Robert Gibbs’s cursing at Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama. Gibbs left the administration soon after.
Obama admitted there were arguments among his “team of rivals” in the White House but said it was more about people trying to solve tough issues.
“I did have a strong bias towards people who just wanted to get things right, get things done, as opposed to people who were obsessed with ‘I want to be right. I want to prominent. I want to have my name in the headlines,’” he said. “And if you can create that culture, then you are more likely to be successful.”
On Monday, Georgia lawmakers killed a tax deal designed to benefit Delta Air Lines after the airline caved to pressure from radical left-wing gun control activists and ended their relationship with the NRA.
The move by Georgia’s State Senate came after Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle said on Monday that he would kill any tax benefit that Delta receives if they did not reverse their decision.
It came after Delta desperately sought to find neutral ground in a gun debate that has very little, trying to soothe concerns among conservative lawmakers infuriated by the company’s decision to end discounted rates for NRA members in the wake of the mass shooting at a Florida high school.
That move forced Gov. Nathan Deal and other supporters of the $50 million jet fuel sales tax exemption to shift to the defensive, and prompted a growing number of Republicans to try to strip the provision out of a broader tax-cut bill that has already passed the state House.
“We Played for Them! It’s All for Them!” Marjory Stoneman Douglas Hockey Team Wins State 2 Weeks After Mass Shooting (VIDEO)
February 26, 2018 by Jim Hoft
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High’s hockey team won the state championship this weekend in Florida after starting out the tournament as the bottom seed.
The team almost decided to skip the tournament after the horrific shooting two weeks ago but
Stoneman Douglas senior Joey Zenobi told reporters, “”No one was lacking energy in the locker room. We all came to play. We were all ready. This wasn’t for us. This was for the 17 victims. We played for them. So passionate, so emotional. It’s all for them.”
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise knows firsthand what can happen when a firearm ends up in evil hands. After a crazed gunman decided to take out his leftist-rage on unsuspecting congressman in June last year, Scalise nearly lost his life.
Reportedly angry with President Donald Trump and Republicans in general, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson exacted his revenge on innocent Republican congressman, opening fire while the group practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game in Alexandria, Virginia, Chicago Tribune reported.
After Congressman Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet “broke bones, tore up internal organs and cause(d) major internal bleeding,” and left him in critical condition, The New York Times reported. After months of recovery and several surgeries, Scalise returned to his position on Capitol Hill in September.
So has Scalise wavered on Americans’ Second Amendment right since his traumatic ordeal? Hardly.
In the wake of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, Scalise revealed his unfaltering position on the issue during an interview with Fox News.

Rather than wrongly target the NRA and law-abiding American gun owners as so many other politicians have done, Scalise called on his fellow lawmakers to focus on problems in mental health care and pointed out the failures in local, state and federal law enforcement that must be rectified.
“(W)e’ve seen so many breakdowns in different levels of government — federal, of course, with the FBI completely dropping the ball months ago when they had this kid handed to them on a silver platter,” Scalise told Fox News Channel’s Brian Kilmeade.
“At the local level, we’re finding out more and more disturbing information about the local sheriff’s deputies, at least one, maybe more that were on site, armed to protect those kids who stayed outside instead of going in and confronting the shooter.”
Scalise also knows better than most how guns in the hands of capable, trained men and women can be life-saving.
Do you agree with Steve Scalise?
Capitol Hill police who were at the baseball field on that day fateful day in Virginia willingly risked their lives to confront Hodgkinson, saving Scalise and many others.
“The fact that you had two armed police officers there who confronted the shooter immediately, saved not only my life but all the other members of Congress at that ball field,” Scalise recalled.
“Let’s focus more on addressing these problems in mental health that we’ve started to deal with in Congress,” Scalise concluded. “Let’s close loopholes, let’s figure out what went wrong with government before people start talking about taking away the rights of law-abiding citizens.”
We need more leaders like Scalise who won’t allow the left to gloss over the clear-as-day failures in government that could have prevented atrocities like the Parkland shooting, and others.
Only three months ago, members of a Texas church were massacred after a clerical error by the government allowed the shooter to buy guns even though he should have been barred from purchasing them. And who stopped that murderer? Stephen Willeford — an NRA member with an AR-15.
What we’re seeing here — in the attack on the NRA and law-abiding gun owners — is right out of the left’s playbook — to “never let a crisis go to waste.” Like Scalise, we must counter that narrative with the facts — that trained, qualified gun owners are the best protection we have from the threats of those who would do evil.

Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor slammed Delta Airlines Monday for joining the campaign against the National Rifle Association, and said he would back an effort to cut the state’s tax cuts to the company.
Here’s what he said
Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle tweeted about Delta on his official social media account Monday.
I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.
“I will kill any tax legislation that benefits [Delta] unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with [the NRA,]” he tweeted.
“Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back,” he added.
Delta ended its partnership with the NRA that gave its members a discount on airfare after the shooting in Parkland, Florida. A campaign for stricter gun control centered on countering the NRA, and some on the left even blamed the gun rights organization for the massacre.
Delta released a statement defending its decision, but framed it as a repositioning to the center, not a rejection of the NRA.
“Delta’s decision reflects the airline’s neutral status in the current national debate over gun control amid recent school shootings,” the statement read. “Out of respect for our customers and employees on both sides, Delta has taken this action to refrain from entering this debate and focus on its business.”
“Delta continues to support the 2nd Amendment,” they added.
A fight for values
“I’m tired of conservatives being kicked around on our values,” said Cagle to reporters on Monday. “It’s time we stand up and fight and show corporations that conservative values are important, not just to Georgia but to the entire nation.”
“We can fight for jobs,” he added, “but we can also fight for values.”
Conservative commentator Erick Erickson explained, “if anything, Delta’s actions against the @NRA have struck a blow against crony capitalism in Georgia.”
The first major corporation to stand up the disgusting liberal exploitation of the Parkland high school slaughter has gone on record and it’s a big one.
In a stunning rebuke to the arrogant little opportunistic punk David Hogg and his fascistic social media bullying bund, FedEx has refused to join the lynching party for members of the National Rifle Association.
The media has managed to take all of the pain and suffering of the families and victims of mentally ill school shooter Nikolas Cruz and package them into the nasty and slick persona of the ambitious young Hogg who in another time would have fit in very nicely with the Hitler-Jugend.
But it isn’t going to work and not only because Hogg is a slimy little punk who is callously capitalizing on the murders of his classmates but because none other than Erick Erickson finally called this chickenshit little bully’s bluff.
This humble author has rarely defended Erickson but this guy had the stones to step up to the plate when most other spineless “conservatives” cowered.
Boss Hogg is about to learn that life comes at you quickly and others should follow Erickson’s advice and take him to the woodshed for a good paddling and then sit him in the corner in a dunce cap to suck on this thumb.
FedEx Corp said on Monday it would allow the National Rifle Association (NRA) to continue using a discount program but said it opposed sales of assault rifles.
The package delivery company’s statement comes as major corporations are under pressures to sever marketing and other ties with the NRA in the aftermath of the Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school.
FedEx said its positions on the issues of gun policy and safety differ from those of the NRA. The shipper supports restricting assault rifles to the military and opposes allowing civilians to use them.
“While we strongly support the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own firearms subject to appropriate background checks, FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused,” FedEx said.
As for discounts, it added that “FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues.”
Looks like the high school bully’s influence has been vastly overestimated by the left who have once again bet big on the wrong horse.
Woods tweeted, “It will be a real catastrophe if evidence emerges that the four Broward deputies were told not to engage the killer. There was either a training problem, a communication problem or a command problem. It’s too easy to call men “cowards.” Something is rotten in this whole deal.”
It will be a real catastrophe if evidence emerges that the four #Broward deputies were told not to engage the killer. There was either a training problem, a communication problem, or a command problem. It’s too easy to call men “cowards.” Something is rotten in this whole deal.
On Monday, FedEx announced that they will not be bullied into cutting ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the face of pro-gun control astroturf campaigns urging businesses to disassociate from the massive gun rights organization.
“FedEx is a common carrier under Federal law and therefore does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or their political views,” said the statement. “FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues.”
The company did, however, endorse specific gun-control measures that are not backed by the NRA.
“FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused. We therefore support restricting them to the military,” the statement read.
Student activist and South Florida high school shooting survivor David Hogg was one of the leading voices in the campaign to bully FedEx into turning their backs on some 5 million-plus NRA members.
So how else should we pressure @FedEx to end their relationship with the NRA? Same question for Amazon also I’ve been trying to cancel my prime membership along with everyone else that doesn’t want to support @NRATV how should we go about that? @amazon
Hogg has been intensely focused on the NRA, their spokeswoman Dana Loesch, and Republicans, while seemingly giving a pass to the FBI and local authorities, like Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who reportedly dropped the ball, showcasing negligence, incompetence, and even cowardice.

Michael Savage announced his consideration of a U.S. Senate run in California to challenge incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) during his Friday radio show.
“I’ve been asked by a number of very powerful and important people to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the state of California,” said Savage. He added:
Some very important people have come to me and said, ‘Savage, will you like to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the state of California against the esteemed Dianne Feinstein?’
Some very important people have come to me… and they said, ‘Savage, the state you live in in California is a one-party state, it’s corrupt, it’s run by criminals. Nobody is standing up to the criminals running this state. They’re all on the same side, the corrupt side. Why don’t you run as an independent? We’ll back you.’ I’m asking you. Should I run or not run?
“If I ran as a U.S. Senate candidate in the state of California, it’d be very simple: borders, language, culture,” said Savage. “Same as I’ve been talking about right here on the show. Nationally, statewide, same thing.”
Border security and illegal immigration would be a joint focus of any senatorial campaign of his, said Savage: “I’m not the kind of guy who’s going to go out and hug illegal aliens and wash their feet like Nancy Pelosi. … I’m going say, ‘Build a wall that’s so thick a hurricane couldn’t blow it down.’ I’m not talking about a wall, I’m talking about a citadel. California needs to be sealed off.”
“We’re going to secure the border with Mexico,” said Savage. “Not only will we support Donald Trump’s border wall, we will add to the border wall in the state of California. We’ll make it like a citadel, a fortress on the border. We’ll make it eight feet thick.”
Voting ballots should only be available in English, said Savage:
Language. You want to vote in my state? Who said you have the right to vote in my state if you can’t read or write English? Tell me where that is written. … If you want to vote in the state of California, you have to vote in English, because we’re eliminating ballots in any other language. That would be a thing I’d run on.
How can you vote on anything if you can’t read or write the language of the land? What sane nation on Earth permits a ballot to be printed in six different languages?
English [should be] the only language permitted if you’re going to vote in the state.
The Golden State is “extremely conservative,” said Savage:
If you think everyone in California is a liberal, you know nothing about California. If you think everybody thinks the way they do in San Francisco or in L.A. — and I mean only regions of L.A. — you’re mistaken. Most of California is extremely conservative. They’re gun owners, they’re workers, they’re farmers, they’re business people, they’re housewives. They love America, and they hate Feinstein and they hate Pelosi.
If you think the whole state of California is like what Nancy Pelosi represents, you’re mistaken. I’ve lived in this state since 1974, and of course there are large volumes of drug-addicted hippies in high places. Of course there are large volumes of drug-addicted hippies running the newspapers an the television programs. I know what they would try to say about me, but I can guarantee you they’d have a lot of trouble proving what they say about me because it’s all false.
Savage drew on an aphorism of Rabbi Hillel’s in explaining his motivations to run for office: “Why do I need it? Well, there’s a thing called public service. if not me, who? In other words, who’s going to run that has a chance to even articulate the positions that most Californians, in fact most Americans, believe to be valid?”
“I love the state of California,” said Savage. “I’ve done well here. I worked very hard here.”
