Since this is the last weekend of the school vacation weeks (New Hampshire this past week and Massachusetts the week before) things will calm down a bit and we’ll see most of the ski folk only over the next few weeks. (Our local ski resort closes the first weekend of April to start prepping for the summer season.)
Thoughts of the upcoming boating season have been intruding and I have been making plans for the Official Weekend Pundit Lake Winnipesaukee Runabout to be taken out of storage, serviced, and prepped for being returned to the water in a little over two months.
It seems that one state, Georgia, is taking the 2020 election irregularities seriously and changing its election laws to address them. Not surprisingly, the Georgia Secretary of State isn’t behind the changes and thinks they go too far. What are these ‘radical’ changes the SoS is against?
One such bill that has passed in the state senate would require all voters to present either a driver’s license number, a state identification card number, or a photocopy of some other approved form of identification in order to be allowed to cast an absentee ballot. Another bill, which has been approved by a state senate subcommittee, would force voters to provide a legitimate reason for voting by absentee ballot rather than in-person. The swath of new bills is in response to widespread allegations, backed by credible evidence, of voter fraud in the state in last November’s elections.I wish New Hampshire’s legislature would take action to close the non-resident voting loopholes that presently allow out-of-state college students, campaign workers, and other ‘temporary’ occupants to vote in our elections. There are actual requirements that need to be met in order to be eligible to register to vote, but the same-day voter registration part of our election laws have created one heck of a loophole that allows these otherwise ineligible non-New Hampshire voters to cast ballots in our elections. I think we are the only state in the country that allows ineligible voters to vote in our elections, an abuse that must be stopped.
Another state looking deeper into election irregularities is Arizona, particularly after a Superior Court judge ruled that Maricopa County must turn over 2.1 million ballots to the Arizona State Senate as part of their investigation into ballot count irregularities during the November 2020 election.
The county fought the state senate subpoenas for the ballots, but the judge ruled “There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections.”
What are the county election officials so nervous about? If everything is on the up and up there shouldn’t be any problems, right?
This says it all.
Leftists Cook Up Crazed Fever Dream to See Nazi Symbolism at CPAC.
Leftists are convinced that the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is a nefarious conclave of secret Nazis plotting an insurrection. Many activists on Twitter have seized on the shape of the CPAC stage at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Fla., claiming it is shaped like a secret rune to cater to Neo-Nazis. Partially for this reason, activists have demanded that Hyatt Hotels stop hosting this “hateful” confab. Hyatt rightly stood up to this absurd cancel push.It seems the just about anything can be called a “Nazi symbol” and used by the Left to cast conservatives as Nazis. Yet it is the Left who have the thugs who resemble the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany. It is the Left who shelter blatantly antisemitic members of Congress from their party. It is the Left that uses eliminationist rhetoric against the Right. It is the Left that censors speech.
Matt Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union (ACU), which organizes CPAC, definitively debunked this absurd conspiracy theory.
“Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous,” Schlapp tweeted. “We have a long standing commitment to the Jewish community. Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks. CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage.”
It comes down to this simple rule they follow: “Accuse your opponents of acts you are committing.”
From The People’s Cube:
Could Comrade Biden be our first Neuro-Proxy “President”?
I’d say the chances are even.
From the “Just When I Thought They Couldn’t Get Any Stupider” Department comes this little gem.
Two California Assembly members have proposed legislation that will fine stores for having separate boy’s and girl’s clothing sections.
What’s next? Legislating what goods or brands will be allowed to be sold in various stores? Legislating that all foods being sold will have to be organic and farmed in a sustainable fashion (‘sustainable’ being defined by the legislature and not reality) or they can’t be sold? Making it illegal for deliveries to stores to be made by anything other than electric trucks?
I wouldn’t put it past them as they’ve done stupid things like this before.
And that’s the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where the weather is trending warmer, the skiing is still great, and where Town Meeting season starts soon.
