Dave Glomp, a member of the Republican Party of Dane County Executive Board who had reservations about the City of Madison curbside voting process decided that he would check it out Friday and try it. Afterward he sent us this about his experience and is encouraging other Madison residents try curbside voting.
“Curbside at City County Building voting was quick and easy, and they did have a decent process. We did need to produce a photo ID with our legal address to get a ballot, from the clerk. We had to sign for the ballot and initially we talked by cell phone to someone in the clerk’s office to verify our address and our names and voting district.
The personnel helping out curbside, even offered to witnessed and signed as witness our voting. We then inserted the ballot into an envelope, which included a label printed out by the Clerk. They provided a moisture pen to seal the envelope so no one could see how we voted. They said that the Sealed ballot would be stored in the Clerks vault until April 7th when they would be opened and certified as being cast absentee in our voting district which also appeared along with our names on the outside of the sealed ballot envelope. The vote for President was all on one sheet or on a single ballot and you simply have to vote for either one of the Democrats or for Trump or a write in. Obviously, you can’t vote for both. Once you vote and fold up the ballot, it is sealed in the envelope so no one can tell if you voted Republican or Democrat. We signed a statement on the outside of the envelope that we produced a valid photo ID and that we provided our legal address for voting, before receiving the ballot.
It seems like they covered all contingencies! I felt they did their due diligence as did I as a voter. It is one more way for Republicans to make sure they are able to vote and get our people elected! That is part of the reason I voted this way! I needed to see if it was a legitimate process.”

A few details, curbside voting is at the City County Building. Turn onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. There is a roped off area and the phone number to call is on each parking meter. Call it, give them your name and address. They will come out with the ballot or ballots if there’s more than one person in the car. Voting is confidential. They do not know who you voted for. David said the Madison Clerk’s staff wear gloves and masks and the whole process took only a few minutes. You do not get out of your vehicle. Voting is only during normal city office hours 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on weekdays. This is a much better and safer way to vote than at the polls on April 7. With the lock-down, traffic downtown is light, but if you don't like to drive to the Isthmus area of Madison call Uber! VOTE FOR JUSTICE KELLY!

Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) handily dismantled the Democrats’ entire case for impeachment Wednesday, getting U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland to admit that “no one on this planet” told him that financial assistance to Ukraine was tied to corruption investigations.
“After you testified, Chairman [Adam] Schiff ran out and gave a press conference and said he gets to impeach the president of the United States because of your testimony and if you pull up CNN today, right now, their banner says ‘Sondland ties Trump to withholding aid,’” Turner said during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing. “Is that your testimony today, Ambassador Sondland? That you have evidence that Donald Trump tied the investigations to the aid? Because I don’t think you’re saying that.”
After Sondland’s “bombshell” opening testimony, the chyron on CNN stated: “SONDLAND: ‘YES’ THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO IN UKRAINE SCANDAL.” READ it HERE

We have an elite that does not accept the American idea of government—government by, for, and of the people.
by Robert Curry - November 10th, 2019 American Greatness
Democrats in Congress, Democratic operatives in the deep state, and co-conspirators in the corporate leftist propaganda conglomerate are attempting to drive Trump from office. This hyperpartisan process rightly has been called an attempted coup. It is also a brazen fraud. In the immortal words of Woody Allen’s Fielding Melish, “it is a travesty . . . a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.”
But in a deeper sense, isn’t it clear that the coup has already happened? By trying to overthrow the results of a presidential election, the political elite is merely showing its hand; America has an elite that believes it now rules in America. We have an elite that does not accept the American idea of government—government by, for, and of the people.
According to our self-selected rulers, the election of Hillary Clinton was the whole point of 2016. They had designated Hillary to succeed Obama. She was to continue the project of fundamentally transforming America that was the focus of the Obama Administration. The voters were supposed to ratify the elite’s selection of Clinton. READ it HERE
The Democrats are being led by a coalition of constitutional renegades, political tricksters, and would-be Maduros.
They are speeding over a political cliff. The force of gravity will assert itself.
by Conrad Black - October 22nd, 2019 American Greatness
Two elements of the turbulent current American political scene became clearer over the past week. One is the determination, attested to by almost all Washington insiders whatever side they are on, of the Democratic leadership to force an impeachment trial of the president. Also developing, as a further bleat from the vanishing NeverTrumpers, is the theory that large chunks of Republican loyalty in Congress are starting to peel off and desert the president.
Since all polls show Republican opinion in the country is rock solid behind the president and by any normal criteria—the economy, declining illegal immigration, and his delivery on election promises—he will be reelected easily. This, as the egregious U.S. Representative Al Green (D-Texas) says, is the problem: if Trump isn’t impeached, he will be reelected. But impeachment will be a complete failure, and he will be reelected anyway.
The game has escalated. Donald Trump said he would drain the swamp and he has made a greater effort than any president since Andrew Jackson in 1829 to sweep out the governing elites. It was not on a whim that he had that president’s painting hung behind his desk in the Oval Office and visited Jackson’s home, The Hermitage, in Nashville.

In 1619, we had a great event in world history and a great event in American history
In 1619 in Germany, Johannes Kepler published his fabled third law of planetary motion. This law asserts that the square of the time of revolution of a planet is proportional to the cube of the distance the planet is from the sun. The proportion is the same for all the planets! Isaac Newton later utilized Kepler's three laws of motion in combination with Galileo's law of falling bodies to prove the laws of universal gravitation.
Also in 1619, the English colony of Virginia set up the first democratically elected legislative assembly in North America. They called it the Virginia General Assembly. The idea of democracy and representation in government later spread to all 13 English colonies and then to the United States Constitution.
But alas, the New York Times 1619 Project is not about these events. The NYT 1619 Project is about 20 indentured servants from a Dutch ship brought to the English colony of Virginia in 1619.
Indentured servants were already in Virginia in 1619, they had been brought there shortly after the colony was founded in 1607. But the earlier indentured servants were white Europeans, while the 1619 indentured servants were black Africans. From 1619 until the 1660s, white and black indentured servants worked side-by-side. The servants typically worked for seven to 14 years, then gained freedom and a plot of their own land. A great source for this time period in Virginia is American Slavery, American Freedom by Edmund Morgan.

Just over three years ago, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, speaking at a fundraiser in New York City, characterized half of Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” And for more than three years, Trump, along with everyone who supports him, has been subjected to passionate hatred from nearly everyone who would rather have seen Clinton elected.
It might be tempting to return the favor and hate back. That not only would be a tactical mistake—since you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar—but also inaccurate targeting. There are a surprising number of liberals, progressives, and even socialists, who are not only anti-Clinton, but are begrudgingly, and increasingly, capable of seeing the positive side of the Trump presidency.
A very early indication of this came in October 2016, when John Pilger published in the London Progressive Journal an influential article titled, “Why Hillary Clinton Is More Dangerous Than Donald Trump.” Pilger, notwithstanding his socialist leanings, is a world-renowned journalist and filmmaker of undeniable courage and integrity.
In an eloquent tirade notable for its many, many examples of how Hillary Clinton is a murderous establishment puppet, this observation by Pilger summed it up: “She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.”
Sound familiar? And wow, how that system has tried, and continues to try to take down Trump. READ it HERE

President Trump set out a nationalist worldview on Tuesday, attacking globalism and delivering a comprehensive account of how his vision informs policies on everything from trade to abortion.
“The future does not belong to globalists,” he told the United Nations General Assembly, a body founded on a globalist consensus. “The future belongs to patriots."
“The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country unique," he said.
This time around, there were no pithy epithets like the "Rocket Man" jibe he directed at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during his first appearance at the U.N. Nor did the audience — always a tough one for Trump — break into disbelieving laughter as they did last year at the claim his administration had accomplished more “than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
Instead, Teleprompter Trump steered away from cheap shots and expansive claims to deliver a speech that, three years after coming to power, emphasized how his "America First" slogan was being put into practice.
It suggested a systematic approach to foreign policy, according to James Carafano of the Herit READ it HERE
The emotional, physical, and intellectual damage wrought by the climate change movement now is coming into clear view. It’s an outcome that should enrage every parent.

On Friday, schoolchildren around the world will be prompted to walk out of class as part of the “Global Climate Strike.” These young “climate strikers” will protest alleged inaction on climate change and promote an end to fossil fuel use.
“Our house is on fire—let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone,” the event’s website warns.
It is the latest stunt orchestrated by the international climate cabal and yet another example of how the Left shamelessly exploits and manipulates children to propagandize any cause. (Think of the high school students in Parkland, Florida.) But this time, the climate cabal is using a special-needs teenager from Sweden to indoctrinate more children and adults with climate change dogma.
Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old from Stockholm—which is ironic because the teen exhibits many traits associated with a hostage attempting to please her captors.
In a way, Thunberg is not the face of a climate crisis but an alarming example of how the climate cabal has needlessly terrified two generations of young people. The emotional, physical, and intellectual damage wrought by the climate change movement now is coming into clear view and it’s an outcome that should enrage every parent. READ it HERE
