Court Brief: 11.6K Dead People on Virginia’s Voter Rolls

About 11,600 dead people remain on the state of Virginia’s voter rolls, according to a court brief filed in United States District Court. A court brief filed by the Public Legal Interest Foundation (PILF) alleges grave issues with Virginia’s voter rolls just as a lawsuit in the state seeks to strip witness requirements on mail-in ballots in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis. According to PILF, there are about 11,600 dead people on Virginia’s voter rolls — all of whom would receive mail-in ballots if an election were held by mail. These nearly 12,000 dead voters have corresponding published obituaries. Another 1,772 registered voters have commercial addresses listed as their primary residence and nearly 600 voters have been flagged as having duplicated registrations. On Wednesday, the court accepted PILF’s brief. As Breitbart News wrote this month, PILF research shows that 28.4 million mail-in ballots have gone missing in the last four election cycles dating back to 2012. In the 2016 and 2018 elections, a total of about 16.4 million mail-in ballots went missing. Currently, elected Democrats are lobbying for nationwide mail-in voting for the November presidential election — a move that would potentially deliver ballots to an estimated 24 million ineligible voters. The plan is being bankrolled by organizations funded by billionaire George Soros. The brief is related to an ongoing lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia. The case number is 6:20-cv-00024.

And the Dems continue to assert that there is never voter fraud, and want mass mail-in ballots for everyone…which, of course, is crazy.  It’s one thing to have mail-in ballots for primary elections or small local dog-catcher type issues.  But, a GENERAL national election where a President is decided, and control of the U.S. Senate is in the balance?  um…no.  Too many opportunity for voter fraud.  That is why we’re ALL for voter ID laws to protect against voter fraud.  Hopefully Virginia gets this fixed before the November election..

Ammo Sales Surge as Virginians Anticipate Democrat Gun Control

Ammunition sales are surging as many Virginian seek to stock up ahead of a slew of Democrat-mandated gun controls for the state. WSET reports online ammunition seller AmmunitionToGo.com notes a 137 percent increase in ammo sales to Virginians now versus this same time last year. AmmunitionToGo’s Brandon Black said, “We’re now seeing a massive number of Virginia shooters stocking up on ammunition in anticipation of new laws that they believe will make it harder to purchase rounds legally.” Black noted firearm and ammunition sales are impacted by political change in a way unseen with other retail items. He said, “I doubt that any other businesses are affected as much by politics as firearm and ammunition manufacturers and retailers.” WSET reports Virginians have purchased enough ammo to take the state from simply being in AmmunitionToGo’s “top 20 markets” to being in the top five. On January 21, 2020–the day after thousands rallied for Second Amendment rights in Virginia–WJLA quoted a Democrat State Senator making clear his conviction a mandate for gun control remains. Sen. Scott Surovell (D-Fairfax) said, “We are in charge now” and “We feel like we have a mandate to do something and we are going to continue to move forward.” On the very next day the Virginia Senate took up various gun controls. Breitbart News reported those controls included a permanent ban on exercising Second Amendment rights on Virginia Capitol grounds. Stricter requirements for concealed carry permit issuance, gun storage laws, and penalties for gun owners who fail to report stolen firearms within 24 hours of the theft, are also being pushed. House Bill 961 would put in place a licensing requirement for all AR-15 owners and Democrats have made clear that the licensing process would be used to create a database of said owners.

The Democrat anti-gun, fascist Nazis are in charge in Virginia now…and they’re putting a target on the backs of law-abiding gun owners in that state.  Keep this in mind come November when we all go to the polls.  This is what happens when Democrats are in power.  They come for your guns and raise your taxes.  Unreal…

Gun control standoff heats up in Virginia as ‘sanctuaries’ grow, big votes loom

A battle over gun control in Virginia with national implications is heating up as the legislature prepares to vote on sweeping new restrictions and localities band together to defy them in growing numbers. Virginians turned out to debate the measures and other issues at public budget hearings on Thursday, less than a week before the General Assembly’s first legislative session of 2020. Both the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) and Gun Owners of America specifically warned about Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s related budget proposal, which directs $250,000 for the Department of Corrections to incarcerate people as a result of new restrictions. Another measure included over $4 million and 18 “authorized positions” — part of an apparent team that Second Amendment groups warn could be used to enforce an assault weapons ban. The new General Assembly is expected to vote on two bills in particular – SB 18 and SB 16 – which would ban assault weapons, raise the minimum age of purchase to 21 and require background checks for any firearms transfer. In the run-up to the session and following state elections in November, a defiant protest movement has taken shape that could influence similar movements in other states. More than 100 cities, towns and counties have passed “sanctuary” resolutions meant to flout an assault weapons ban and other proposals. According to local outlets, activists on both sides of the debate raised concerns during a hearing in Suffolk. “This is not about gun safety, public safety, or whatever you want to call it,” one speaker said, according to WTKR. “It’s about control of people based solely on a radical, political, extremist agenda.” The meeting in Suffolk was “packed,” according to WAVY, and included at least 100 speakers — although it’s unclear how many spoke about gun control.

For those of you in Virginia, be afraid.  Thank God I don’t live there…  This is a cautionary tale for the rest of us, and the importance of elections.  When Dems are in control, the raise your taxes, and come for your guns.  Keep this in mind as we head into an election cycle.  For more, click on the text above.

VA Gov Northam on Abortion Bill: Infant Could Be Delivered and Then ‘Physicians and the Mother’ Could Decide If It Lives

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D.) commented Wednesday about a controversial 40-week abortion bill and in so doing said the law allows an abortion to take place after the infant’s birth. “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said, alluding to the physician and mother discussing whether the born infant should live or die. A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy. The video of Delegate Kathy Tran presenting her bill led to an exchange where she admitted that her bill would allow for a mother to abort her child minutes before giving birth. “How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated that it would impair the mental health of the woman?” Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R.) asked. “Or physical health,” Tran said. “Okay,” Gilbert replied. “I’m talking about the mental health.” “I mean, through the third trimester,” Tran said. “The third trimester goes up to 40 weeks.” “Okay, but to the end of the third trimester?” Gilbert asked. “Yup, I don’t think we have a limit in the bill,” Tran said. “Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified?” Gilbert asked. “She’s dilating.” Tran responded that is a decision between the woman and her doctor would have to make. Gilbert asked if her bill would allow an abortion right before the infant was born. “My bill would allow that, yes,” Tran said. NBC4 reporter Julie Carey asked Northam about the measure. “Do you support her measure and explain her answer?” Carey asked. “I wasn’t there, Julie. And I certainly can’t speak for delegate Tran. But I would tell you one, the first think I would say, this is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved,” Northam said. “When we talk about third trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician by the way. And it is done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that is non-viable.” Northam continued by saying government shouldn’t be involved in these types of decisions and that legislators, especially male legislators, shouldn’t be telling women what to do. “I think this was really blown out of proportion. But again we want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions. We want the decision to be made by the mothers and their providers. And this is why Julie, that legislators, most of whom are men by the way, shouldn’t be telling a woman what she should or shouldn’t be doing with her body,” Northam said. Carey asked if the law should still require women to have multiple physicians approve an abortion. “Well, I think it is always good to get a second opinion and for at least two providers to be involved in that decision,” Northam said. “These decisions shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Wow..  Just pause and re-read what Gov. Northam (D-VA) is saying here..  He’s advocating that it’s perfectly reasonable to abort mere minutes before birth for a whole range of reasons having NOTHING to do with the life or health and welfare of the mother.  He’s even suggesting it can be done POST birth/POST delivery!  And, if your a male (who isn’t a liberal Democrat, of course, like him), then you shouldn’t weigh in on the issue.  What a hypocrite!  Now, here at The Daily Buzz we really try to avoid the abortion issue altogether as it’s such a divisive issue.  And, it’s really not what this blog focuses on.  But, c’mon..  This is what the late DEMOCRAT Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) referred to as “infanticide.”  This isn’t about whether abortion should be legal or not.  Its about abortion on demand regardless of science, and even POST delivery.  By ANY definition, that’s murder…and that’s what these lunatics are advocating.  Unreal..  If you’re in Virigina, ya just might want to contact your state rep and state senator, and let them know how ya feel about this insanity.

MS-13 member in Virginia pleads guilty to murder for hacking man to death with machete

A Virginia MS-13 member charged with hacking to death a man who was killed for speaking ill of the notorious gang last year has pleaded guilty, according to reports. Jose Luis Escobar-Umana, 23, pleaded guilty Thursday in Albemarle County Circuit Court to four crimes in the July 3, 2017, killing of Marvin Joel Rivera Guevera — first degree murder, abduction, lynching and being a member of a criminal street gang, the Charlottesville Daily Progress reported. Three other MS-13 gang members have pleaded guilty in the slaying, the paper reported. Walter Antonio Argueta Amaya, 21, reportedly an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, pleaded guilty to the same four counts as Escobar-Umana. Juan Carolos Argueta, 19, and Juan Carolos Zelaya, 19, have pleaded guilty to gang participation and lynching, according to the paper. Guevera was attacked with a machete near a creek in Albemarle County, suffering more than 140 laceration wounds to his head, neck, body and limbs, the paper reported. The blows left him unrecognizable. He was identified through DNA. Prosecutors say they believe Guevera was killed for speaking ill of the MS-13 gang, the Daily Progress reported. Escobar-Umana and the other three are the only defendants in the case. The victim worked at a pizza shop where Argueta also worked. Prosecutors said the sentencings have been scheduled for dates in November and December.

Red Hen teaches Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Virginia is for PC bullies (not for lovers)

Virginia is for lovers of political correctness, as we learned this weekend when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was thrown out of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, on Friday night. The restaurant’s owner sanctimoniously declared the establishment has to uphold “certain standards.” Evidently she means the standard of resisting President Trump, by refusing to serve steak or french fries, or a hen that’s red – or whatever it is that they serve – to an employee of the man they loathe because they’re “tolerant,” or something like that. This political correctness is quickly approaching dangerous and irrational levels the likes of which we’ve never witnessed before. In the age of social media anyone can seize an opportunity to publicly take a stand against President Trump, and know that it could easily become national news and give them their 15 minutes of fame in the process. The staff at The Red Hen knew if they asked Sanders to leave they’d get national news coverage. Shortly afterward employees were lighting up Twitter with tales of how their boss gave Sarah the boot, on moral grounds of course. This quest for media attention is becoming all too common, and as it does, we continue to see people cross the line in potentially dangerous ways. Just last week Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed while eating dinner at a Mexican restaurant near the White House by the Democratic Socialists of America. They were upset over the administration’s immigration policy – a policy that was also the law on the books during the Obama years, but his Cabinet secretaries didn’t get chased out of restaurants following screams and chants and f-bombs. Perhaps we have celebrities like Robert De Niro, Samantha Bee, Michelle Wolf, and Peter Fonda to thank for leading the leftist mob down this road to what is approaching near anarchy. Make no mistake, this isn’t just about President Trump. Even if Vice President Mike Pence was president, this would still happen. The PC liberals in this country increasingly seem to believe that they can bully their way to public policy goals. Celebrities instigate the behavior, the far left mimics the behavior, and the media enables it all. The result is the public now thinks this is the new normal. It is not normal. It is dangerous. Peter Fonda sent out a series of tweets this week, calling for Barron Trump to be ripped from his mother and put in a cage with pedophiles, then he went after Sarah Sanders and Kirstjen Nielsen tweeting that Sanders’ kids should be taken from her and Nielsen should be put in a cage, stripped naked, and whipped publicly with it filmed for posterity. Paging #MeToo. Just curious, if Peter Fonda walked into The Red Hen would he be asked to leave because his tweets don’t meet the “certain standards” they have to uphold as a restaurant? Asking for a friend. By the owner’s flawed logic and approach to business management, anyone who isn’t a socialist shouldn’t serve Bernie Sanders because socialism has ruined many countries and cost countless lives. Yet, if I owned a restaurant I’d gladly serve Senator Sanders and a table full of his socialist friends because I’m running a business, as countless other businesses who don’t subscribe to socialism have done. That’s right, I’d serve a bunch of socialists because I’m a capitalist. Both The Red Hen’s owner and many others are pointing to the recent Supreme Court decision that ruled Masterpiece Cakeshop did not have to make an off-the-menu cake for a gay wedding to justify kicking Sanders out of the restaurant. However, there is no comparison. For that logic to work Sanders would’ve had to order food that wasn’t on the menu and then use the government to try and force them to make what she wanted. Once upon a time, it used to be if any high ranking official — from any administration, Democrat or Republican — came into your restaurant not only would you serve them, but you’d publicize it to promote your business. Gone are those days. Today, many are just looking to put politically correct points on the board, and prefer to seek out publicity for their business through divisive political statements. And our media – most of whom make no secret of the fact they are ultra-liberal – is giving them a platform to do so, not through the lens of journalism and facts, but rather by minimizing those who don’t think the way they do. Accustomed to always being the adult in the room, Sanders left The Red Hen without a scene, and later tweeted “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.” You won’t see Sanders kicking anyone out of the briefing room to uphold certain standards, though many would call her justified if she did. And you won’t find her on Twitter calling anyone four letter words, or calling for the public beating of another human. Those who claim to represent “certain standards”- including tolerance and inclusiveness – should stand up and take notice. This is what it looks like.

Exactly!!  And well said, Lauren.  Lauren DeBellis Appell is the author of that spot-on analysis of how political correctness and tribalism is really tearing us apart as a country.  Then you have tools like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraging mobs to openly harass anyone in the Trump Administration wherever they are; restaurants, gas stations, etc.  Unreal..
