Non-citizen Voting Uncovered in Maryland 

As I have personally experienced this morning, Democrat denials of their election fraud never cease.  But evidence of their fraud keeps piling up.  And the evidence is alarming indeed.

The latest comes from Maryland from the Virginia Voters Alliance:

The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes.

Please note that these thousands who either voted illegally or lied on the jury duty forms are from just one county in Maryland.  Yes, people do lie to avoid jury duty; that surely accounts for a portion of the number. Still it is safe to say that illegal non-citizen voting in Maryland is more than enough to swing a close election.

And I think I best leave it at that for now.  The implications of such massive election fraud are disturbing, to say the least.

I am a Moron and Proud of it! 

Over the weekend, my novel Pilot Point got a very nice mention at my favorite blog, Ace of Spades, in their weekly book thread.  You’ll find it at the link under "Books by Morons".

Before I proceed further, I should mention that “morons” are those who frequent and comment at that blog.  It is a good epithet in this context.  Just trust me on that.

With that disclaimer, Oregon Muse posted the following on his aforesaid book thread.


Moron commenter WannabeAnglican has self-published his first novel, Pilot Point. I'll let him tell you about it:

Pilot Point is a very Texan novel set along I-20 in West Texas and around the town of Pilot Point in North Texas. With drought, dust, cowboys, and cattle, it could be called a Western except it is set in the late 20th Century and not many get shot up.

At the same time, Pilot Point has a strong Anglican flavor, weaving The Book of Common Prayer and traditional Christian themes through the story. (And that without being heavy-handed about it. I sought to write a weighty work of literature, not a Christian tract.) Not many novels have both cowboys and Anglicanism.

So this is probably going to be the best d**n Anglican cowboy novel you'll read all year.

But wait, there's more:

I will hold the release event for Pilot Point at a GUN SHOW – at the Shiners Gun Show in Corpus Christi on November 8th. I thought that more interesting than having it at a local bookstore and a way to get the novel more directly to fellow Texans who would appreciate it. Besides, it’s a GUN SHOW!

So it looks like at least some of you Texas morons down near Corpus Christi might be able to take in a gun show and meet the author, too. That's almost a perfect day.


Got that right!

Thanks again to Oregon Muse for the mention.

And your support is appreciated at well.  Don’t forget to “like” Pilot Point on Facebook.

And don’t forget you can get Pilot Point for as little as $2.99, or even free if you are enrolled in certain Amazon programs. 

You know what to do.

Downfall XXV: WSJ/NBC Poll Has GOP Up 11 Points 

A report that a WSJ/NBC poll had Republicans up 11 points “among likely voters on the question of which party should control Congress” seemed such an outlier I had to check it out for myself.  You see it is good for Republicans to be even or barely ahead on such “generic” congressional ballot questions.  They are hardly ever way ahead.  And WSJ/NBC polls are so skewed toward Democrats, they have become a bad joke to me.

But it is true.  Further, a clear majority of likely voters, 52%, want Republicans to control Congress according to this WSJ/NBC poll.

To get to the point, this points to a Republican “wave” election as big or bigger than 2010.  Seeing this and a number of individual Senate polls, I think the only way the Democrats even come close to holding the Senate is massive luck or massive fraud or both.  And that is possible but . . .  unless something awful happens for Republicans, Obama will become either a very lame duck or a dictator with little support in Congress in ten days.

But do NOT get complacent.   This election is too important for that.

Democrat Election Fraud Already Underway, UPDATED 

One reason Election Day has become Election Month in some states is to give Democrats more opportunity to commit election fraud.  And given that almost three-quarters of statewide races with margins of under 1% have been won by Democrats since 1998, it appears election fraud is one thing Democrats can do very well.

And, sure enough, election fraud is already underway in Illinois, where the sitting Democrat Guv happens to be in trouble.  A Republican candidate for state representative, Jim Moynihan, while early voting found that the machine kept casting his Republican votes for Democrats. 

Everyone was very gracious all around and supposedly fixed the problem.  But how many GOP votes were cast for Democrats before the problem was discovered?

But Cook County is right on it.  Yes, sir:

Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told Illinois Watchdog, the machine was taken out of service and tested.

“This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said. “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”

Ah.  Well I’m sure it was an *honest* “calibration error.”

Democrat election fraud is also surely way under in North Carolina to re-elect Demorat Kay Hagan.  Illegal aliens have already helped out by registering to vote there.

But a state that may outdo them all on election fraud this year is Colorado.  Both Democrat Senator Mark Uterus Udall and the gun-grabbing Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper are in trouble.  And the Guv and his Demorat Legistature have changed the election laws so that they practically invite election fraud.  Mailing out ballots to everyone and same-day registration stand out.  It is safe to say that efforts to steal the election are well underway there.

One Coloradan, Sarah Hoyt, has just written with eloquent anger on what Democrats are doing to Colorado.  And she says what others, even yours truly, is hesitant to say:

Will we tolerate this?  For how long?  Why doesn’t anyone else realize that under the cover of seeming openness they’re making our votes mean nothing?

And why don’t the clever fools in the Democratic Party realize that when you block the ballot box, people will come at you another way?

True, the country has long reacted with remarkable peace after stolen elections, even after the stolen 2008 Senate race in Minnesota that “elected” Al Franken and ended up giving Obamacare the needed 60th vote.  (By the way, Minnesota, are you really going to re-elect that fraudulent turd?)

But it is presumption for Democrats to think they can keep stealing elections with little price to pay, especially when their fraud furthers tyranny.  And that’s probably all I should say . . . for now.

Hoyt has a simple but to the point remedy for the present:

I’m not calling for revolution.  I’m hoping very much we can avoid it.  I’m exhorting those of you in CO and similarly blinkered states to vote and to vote Republican . . . while we can still turn these election rules around.  And do it before they become cemented in place. Even if we have to hold the squishy Republicans’ feet to the fire.

Now I am not thrilled with the Republican Party.  And I have voted third-party on occasion and will do so again.  But Hoyt is right.  For all their faults, most Republican officials seek to further the integrity of elections through Voter ID and other measures, and they oppose fraud enabling such as same-day registration.

And we must have legitimate elections.  The current toxic mixture of tyranny and stolen elections cannot be allowed to continue if we wish to continue as a nation with a semblance of freedom and the rule of law.

“An Extraordinary Synod, Indeed” 

You may have seen my take on the recently concluded Extraordinary Synod, which is that Pope Francis is acting too much like a Pope Rowan and is not to be trusted.  Harsh, yes.  And, as I stated then, I am among those who hope my take proves to be mistaken.

But for a much lighter, probably more perceptive, and downright funny take on the Extraordinary Synod, I point you to George Weigel for a short and excellent read.

It is too short to excerpt much, but this was my favorite part:

2. The 2014 Synod demonstrated the extraordinary self-confidence of bishops from dying local churches who nonetheless feel quite comfortable giving pastoral advice to local churches that are either thriving or holding their own. Many northern European bishops and theologians (and bishop-theologians) acted as if the blissful years when they set the agenda for the world Church at Vatican II had returned. That these same bishops and theologians and bishop-theologians have presided over the collapse of western European Catholicism in the intervening five decades seemed not to matter to them in the slightest. Happy days were here again.

Yes, the similarities with liberal bishops in the Anglican Communion are hard to miss - even through the laughter.

Book Review: Seeking the Secret Place - The Spiritual Formation of C. S. Lewis 

I’ve been reading a lot from and about C. S. Lewis this year.  I think Alister McGrath’s recent excellent biography C. S. Lewis - A Life and coming across two small out-of-print books by Lewis in Oxford may have prompted this direction.  In any case, when I heard of this book, Seeking the Secret Place, about his spiritual formation, about the influences on his growth as a Christian, I knew I had to read it as well.  (So, yes, the book has been out for ten years, but it is new to me.)

Not only was I not disappointed, Seeking the Secret Place: The Spiritual Formation of C. S. Lewis exceeded my expectations. Lyle Dorsett backs his book with extensive research.  As Director of the Wade Center at Wheaton College, he had unusual opportunity to travel, interview, and dig into a treasure trove of primary sources.  He particularly made use of Lewis’ correspondence.

The result is a very readable book that covers some lesser known aspects of C. S. Lewis' personal life and spiritual growth.  Lewis’ relationship with Father Walter Frederick Adams of the Cowley Fathers is an important focus as is Lewis’ faithfulness in his sacrificial commitment to respond thoughtfully to letters, even to fan mail and to those asking a bit much of his time and effort.

I must emphasize the book is not only of historic interest, although it certainly is that.  It can be very helpful to those seeking to grow as Christians themselves. I personally find both the guidance given to Lewis and the guidance he gave to others very instructive and edifying.  Further, I am already using excerpts from Seeking the Secret Place in teaching others.

So Seeking the Secret Place is a book to read both by those interested in the life and spiritual growth of C. S. Lewis and those concerned about their own spiritual formation.  If one finds oneself in both categories, it is then a must-read indeed.

Idaho Ministers Threatened With Jail For Not Performing Gay Weddings 

As Maetenloch over at Ace of Spaces puts it:

Don't worry - allowing gay marriage will never mean that pastors must perform gay marriages or face prison. Oh wait never mind.

Two Idaho ministers have been told by the City of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho that they must perform gay “weddings” in their marriage chapel or face jail and/or ruinous fines, up to $1000 per day.

Strange, we were told that warnings about attacks on religious freedom were scare tactics.  Now that the warnings are coming true, we are told our warnings are whining.  And we were told the movement toward gay rights and same-sex “marriage” was all about “tolerance.”

We were told lies.
