Texas Woman Arrested for Voter Fraud Twice in Two Weeks
Modesta Vela of Roma was arrested October 4 on four voter fraud charges relating to mail-in ballots. Vela is accused of approaching an elderly voter, taking the voter’s mail-in ballot for the November 2018 election, then filling it out herself and mailing it

Vela was arrested again Friday on four new voter fraud charges of tampering with a government record, namely voter registration applications

Vela, a former Starr County Precinct 2 employee who was fired earlier this year, assisted over 200 mail ballot voters in Starr County’s March 2018 Democratic primary. She was also arrested in 2010 on a voter fraud charge involving improper mail ballot assistance during that year’s Democratic primary.

mail ballot fraud is “by far the biggest problem we see across the state” and “the wild West of voter fraud.”

REPORT: Trump Preparing to Ditch Nuke Treaty That Russia Has Violated Repeatedly
There's usually more to the story than one sees on twitter.

Yesterday I saw a tweet from a neo-con Reaganite making snark about how Trump backing out of the INF was really dumb and a violation of everything Reagan stood for or whatever.

I chose to react only with curiosity.

Today I read a brief article about it, and I support the move.

So, my instinct to reject most of what ExpertTom says (he was the guy on twitter) because it's emotionalism based on an old understanding of the way things used to be was borne out by fact.

There may have been a time that ExpertTom was wise and worth paying attention to. That time has passed.

Backing out of the INF is about unshackling ourselves so that we can deal with the world as it IS, not as we wish it to be.

Migrant Caravan Re-Forms, Swells to 5,000, Continues March Toward US
Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico.

Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile (1.5 kilometers).

This is horrifying, and I'm not sure how they can be stopped now.

The US has to cut off funds to Mexico and Guatemala. We can't just throw up our hands and say "oh well" or this becomes a regular thing and our borders mean nothing.

The only solution I see is for mass militarization of our border against this invasion - does not matter that they are not armed, they are invaders - and CBP processes people at the regular border checkpoints at the same rate they always have, it's just that the lines in Mexico are way longer, and they have some massive camp on their side.

Do we give up our sovreignty to the cartels or do we try to maintain law and order?

More than 75,000 expected for sold-out President Donald Trump rally with GOP Sen Ted Cruz in Houston
Attendees are likely to begin lining up overnight for the rally, Acevedo said. Large crowds are expected around the Toyota Center on Monday and people who work downtown should plan for delays, he added.

The event starts around 5 p.m. and doors will open about two to three hours prior.

So, I'm one of the 75K who got a ticket, for a place that only holds 18K. Dammit, there's no way I'll get in, because there's no way I'm camping out.

But I'm going to find some way to participate in some part of it, AFTER I VOTE.

Can't even begin to imagine where I'll have to park.

Who was this Khashoggi guy, really
Saudi national who recently moved to the United States
(if the name sounds a bit familiar, yes, his uncle Adnan was a famous arms dealer)

Not a journalist:
Journalists have a beat. Journalists are accredited and cover news stories, from the local police blotter to the White House. Khashoggi was a newly minted U.S.-based commentator, an opinion piece writer, after having spent much of his life as a subject about which journalists write (he was a friend of the Osama bin Laden family and an activist for a decidedly dark cause). To call him a journalist would be just a wrong as calling me a journalist on account of the opinion pieces I write.

Not a champion of free speech and democracy
This is a man who was a fully paid up member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological mothership that gave us Hamas, al-Qaeda, and, eventually, the Islamic State.

Mexican government said it would begin granting humanitarian visas to those who qualify for asylum.

And now you begin to see how it will work - these caravan folks WILL get into America.

Under the plan, immigration authorities will grant up to 100 visas per day in an effort to break the caravan into smaller groups. Migrants who are granted asylum visas will be free to go anywhere in Mexico they choose, including the U.S.-Mexico border.

Unique from Day One.
Pro-Life is Pro-Science

GREAT themes for the March for Life!

Jeanne Mancini, president of March for Life, said that “our DNA is present in the moment of fertilization and no fingerprint ever -- past, present, future --is like yours. And that’s what it means to be unique from day one. … Pro-life is pro-science.”

EXCLUSIVE: 'Gosnell' Being Dropped From Movie Theaters Despite Solid Performance
Capitalism gives way to ideology.

"Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" surpassed box office expectations upon its release last week by entering into the Top 10 grossing films with a revenue of $1,235,000 on just 668 screens.

Despite the solid performance for an independent film of this sort, nearly 200 theaters have inexplicably dropped the film, including those in major cities where it was performing the strongest. Coming into its second week, "Gosnell" has dropped from 668 theaters to 480 theaters – a full 188 theater drop, 15 of which were top-performing multiplexes.

Actually it's more like straightforward capitalism is giving way to political pressure. There are back room threats happening to cause this.

‘Game of Thrones’ Author: It’s All About Global Warming
It seems that "Game of Thrones" fans have been getting their beloved fantasy story all wrong. According to its author, George RR Martin, the miserable perils of Westeros are all just a message about global warming.

Ever since I gave up this ridiculous show, my decision has been confirmed as the right one in so very many ways.

I make a lot of mistakes, I get a lot of things wrong.

My disdain for Game of Thrones is not one of those mistakes.

Vote Republican. Straight ticket. Just do it.

Think of it as a tiny but important part of your self defense strategy.
