Skip to comments.Why Dissolving the Election Fraud Commission Is a True Loss for the Nation
Posted on 01/08/2018 11:46:32 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
This week, the White House announced the sudden, disappointing news that the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was being dissolved.
Liberal advocacy groups, which for months have worked to obstruct the groups efforts to examine the integrity and security of the ballot box, ecstatically declared victory. But their win is a loss for the nation, which remains blind to the true breadth and scope of fraud in American elections.
As if to emphasize that point, The Heritage Foundation has once again added a slew of new cases to its election fraud database.
Accounting for the new entries, the database now lists 1,107 verified instances of fraud, including 961 criminal convictions of proven fraudsters, 48 cases that ended in civil penalties, 76 cases that resulted in defendants entering diversion programs, and 22 that ended with either a judicial or official finding of fraud.
Thats quite a tally for a problem that supposedly doesnt exist. But as alarming as that figure is, its only the tip of the iceberg.
Heritages database is not comprehensive, so for every case we identify and track through to conclusion, many more likely go undetected or hidden in court records that are not easily accessible.
That sad reality is a result of the lack of adequate safeguards in many statespolicies such as voter identification and proof of citizenship requirementsthat make it possible to detect fraud. Even when fraud is detected, many prosecutors opt not to pursue cases for the simple fact that their priorities lie elsewhere.
As long as these two facts are true, theres little to deter fraudsters from undermining the core of American democracy. Simply put, they know our elections are vulnerable, and they are not above exploiting those weaknesses to advance their careers and causes.

Step two is pushing voter IDs, which Im fine with.
It was definitely a win for the swamp.
Such commissions tend to become infiltrated by the opposition, who then (like the FBI with Hillary) find nothing.
(Sigh) Yet another blogger with reading comprehension problems posted in News...
Even Politico grasped what was done here:
“President Donald Trump is dumping a controversial commission that was charged with investigating his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud during the 2016 election, the White House said Wednesday.
Trump asked the Department of Homeland Security to look into the issue instead.”
Re-read the last sentence if there’s still a problem. Now who would have the greatest ability to get something done about this - a made-up commission or the DHS which has massive infrastructure and power?
They didn’t like Trump’s suggestion of doing this “the nice way”, so now they’ll get the alternative. Unlike Bush and all the rest, Trump doesn’t just quit, he finds a way to get the job done. It would seem that people should have learned this by now.
+1. Odd that people think Trump gave up when it was just the opening negotiation.
If Im not mistaken, I believe President Trump has directed the DHS to take over the vote fraud investigations. After all, it is a matter of national security. MAGA!
Trump asked the Department of Homeland Security to look into the issue instead.
Gonna be a lot of state rat hacks getting nervous. Watch for state voter database/file/server crashes/losses soon.
BOOM! MAGA! GO PRESIDENT TRUMP!

Machavelli lives on..
It’s not over ,, the current state of our elections is threatening our country . Trump will go to Stage II and try again when Sessions retires this year .
I thought it was being rolled into DHS, because the current voter fraud commission was being played by democrat operatives.
START WITH A VERY PUBLIC NEW LAW TO HAVE MANDATORY MINIMUM 10 YEARS JAIL
With a very public pronouncement that you will be vigorously prosecuting.
That would take care of about half of it.
FYI, in the near future, Voting fraud will be a thing of the past.
See this Chief Architect job posting for a UNiversal international biometric ID for All citizens:
“The ID2020 Alliance is a global initiative to accelerate progress towards universal identity.
You will be called upon to research emerging biometric technologies one moment, then speaking at a conference about trust frameworks the next. As the marshal for a multi-stakeholder conversation on digital identity principles and standards, you will be instrumental to our success and critical to ensuring that the digital identity ecosystem is driven by goals of individual empowerment, privacy protection, and user-centricity for citizens around the world.”
A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT
Article 6 of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights stipulates that “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.” The Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030) include target 16.9 which aims to “provide legal identity to all, including birth registration, by 2030.” Critically, this must include the >20M refugees worldwide.
NECESSARY TO ACCESS BASIC SERVICES
Individuals are required to show identification to access healthcare and education, vote, and access other social assistance programs.
CRITICAL FOR ACCOUNTABILITY AND GOVERNANCE
Governments without an accurate system of identification struggle to provide well-coordinated social services, simply because the number of beneficiaries is unknown and precise targeting is impossible. And without clear registries, the risk of leakages and corruption are high - in Nigeria, enrollment of civil servants saved approximately $74M by eliminating “ghost workers” on payroll.
Carrying positive physical ID is sensible.
Universal biometric ID is without question what is prohibited by the word of Yehova, in eternal terms.
Question? What was their rate of success is stopping voter fraud?
“True The Vote,” a Conservative anti-voter-fraud organization, has a database that goes back to 2000.
Unfortunately, the last two times I checked, their database is barely functional.
In any event, several years ago, the four presidential elections from 2000 to 2012 averaged about 1000 voter fraud prosecutions per election.
Most of those prosecutions were against voter registration groups or involved local candidates in local elections.
The number of presidential voter fraud prosecutions numbered only in the hundreds.
Why was this not announced and explained by Trump?
Trump made repeated accusations of massive voter fraud before he created the Commission.
Should we conclude there was no significant fraud?
Or, have Republicans decided to cling to their perpetual excuse for losing elections - VOTER FRAUD!
re: Trump asked the Department of Homeland Security to look into the issue instead.
To really get heads exploding, simply get DHS to deputize the committee members and re-convene the whole group.
