Illegal immigrants—along with other noncitizens without the right to vote—may pick the 2016 presidential winner. Thanks to the unique math undergirding the Electoral College, the mere presence of 11-12 million illegal immigrants and other noncitizens here legally may enable them to swing the election from Republicans to Democrats.

The right to vote is intended to be a singular privilege of citizenship. But the 1787 Constitutional Convention rejected allowing the people to directly elect their President. The delegates chose instead our Electoral College system, under which 538 electoral votes distributed amongst the states determine the presidential victor. The Electoral College awards one elector for each U.S. Senator, thus 100 of the total, and D.C. gets three electors pursuant to the 23rd Amendment. Those electoral numbers are unaffected by the size of the noncitizen population. The same cannot be said for the remaining 435, more than 80 percent of the total, which represent the members elected to the House.
The distribution of these 435 seats is not static: they are reapportioned every ten years to reflect the population changes found in the census. That reallocation math is based on the relative “whole number of persons in each state,” as the formulation in the 14th Amendment has it. When this language was inserted into the U.S. Constitution, the concept of an “illegal immigrant,” as the term is defined today, had no meaning. Thus the census counts illegal immigrants and other noncitizens equally with citizens. Since the census is used to determine the number of House seats apportioned to each state, those states with large populations of illegal immigrants and other noncitizens gain extra seats in the House at the expense of states with fewer such “whole number of persons.”

This math gives strongly Democratic states an unfair edge in the Electoral College. Using citizen-only population statistics, American University scholar Leonard Steinhorn projects California would lose five House seats and therefore five electoral votes. New York and Washington would lose one seat, and thus one electoral vote apiece. These three states, which have voted overwhelming for Democrats over the latest six presidential elections, would lose seven electoral votes altogether. The GOP’s path to victory, by contrast, depends on states that would lose a mere three electoral votes in total. Republican stronghold Texas would lose two House seats and therefore two electoral votes. Florida, which Republicans must win to reclaim the presidency, loses one seat and thus one electoral vote.

But that leaves the electoral math only half done. The 10 House seats taken away from these states would then need to be reallocated to states with relatively small numbers of noncitizens. The following ten states, the bulk of which lean Republican, would likely gain one House seat and thus one additional electoral vote: Iowa, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
Iowa has gone Democratic six out of the last seven times. Michigan and Pennsylvania have both gone comfortably Democratic in every election since 1992. But five states—Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma—all went by double-digit margins to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in 2012. And Romney carried North Carolina by two percent while losing nationally by nearly four percent, a large difference. Likewise, despite solidly beating 2008 GOP nominee John McCain by seven percent nationally, President Obama eked out a bare 0.3 percent win in the Tar Heel State. The current Ohio polls also look promising for the right GOP nominee, and no Republican has ever won the Presidency without carrying the Buckeye State. There is no plausible statistical path for the Republican Party’s nominee to win an electoral majority without these states.

Accordingly, for analytic purposes, three of the states that would gain electoral votes are Democratic. The remaining seven are fairly put in the GOP column. Combining the two halves of the citizen-only population reapportionment, states likely in the Democratic column suffer a net loss of four electoral votes. Conversely the must-win Republican leaning states total a net gain of four electoral votes. These are the four electoral votes statistically cast by noncitizens.
U.S. elections have been decided by far narrower margins. One electoral vote decided the 1876 presidential election. A swing of three electoral votes in 2000 would have elected Al Gore. A glitch in the Electoral College system enabled Aaron Burr to come within one vote of winning the presidency over Thomas Jefferson in 1800. Though they can’t cast an actual ballot, we effectively allow noncitizens to have an indirect, and possibly decisive, say in choosing the President.


Three years ago, President Obama became the first Democrat in 76 years to win a second term with a repeat majority vote. Yet Romney still won two-dozen states with a total of 206 electoral votes. Based on current polling and historical trends, a credible GOP ticket right now must be considered likely to carry all the 24 Romney states and their 206 electoral votes. The key to Republican hopes to win 270 electoral votes next year therefore revolves around the three biggest swing states: Florida, Ohio and Virginia.

Yet a credible future GOP nominee has reason to be hopeful. Obama carried Florida last time by only 0.9 percent. Hillary Clinton suffers from an upside down image among Sunshine State voters, 37 percent having a favorable opinion but 57 percent holding a negative one in a recent poll. She is in a statistical tie with highly unpopular GOP hopeful Donald Trump and loses by 11 percent to former Governor Jeb Bush. Florida statistically should be the easiest of these key swing states for the GOP to win.

During the primary season of 2012, Senator

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 50%

was expecting millions in establishment cash to propel Texas’ Lt. Governor David Dewhurst to the United States Senate. Dewhurst, in McConnell’s mind, would be another political asset for him, in his decades-long dream to become Senate Majority Leader. Dewhurst looked and acted the part. McConnell envisioned Dewhurst would become part of the establishment in the U.S. Senate and most importantly, someone who would never stand up to McConnell or confront the failed status quo.

But on July 31, 2012, conservative grassroots voters in Texas had a different idea. Those Texans were truly ahead of the curve; they already knew what millions now know so well – that Washington is broken and that Americans are being lied to by career politicians like Mitch McConnell. Those courageous voters listened to

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 96%

Cruz’s message of speaking truth to power and sent him to the United States Senate. This was certainly a historic election for anti-establishment forces. However, no one could have foreseen just how critically important it would turn out to be.

Fast-forward to the summer of 2015. Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz has made good on his core promise to be the voice that would hold the Washington cartel accountable. Cruz has become the one elected official in Washington who will reliably call out the establishment every time it breaks a promise or kicks our nation’s biggest problems down the road for another day. And Mitch McConnell is tired of it. In fact, McConnell is so tired of Cruz’s courage and honesty, he appears determined to use every parliamentary tactic available to deny Ted Cruz time on the Senate floor to debate the important issues facing our country.

McConnell’s personal vendetta against Cruz has taken center stage once again this week, and it’s clear that McConnell has abandoned standing up for conservative Republican values or fighting Obama’s leftwing agenda in order to destroy Ted Cruz.  The Republican Leader in the Senate should make President Obama defend those atrocious Planned Parenthood videos and force him to veto the defunding of Planned Parenthood. But Mitch McConnell thinks it’s a better idea to attack Ted Cruz. The Republican Congress should not pass any legislation that busts the budget caps. But Mitch McConnell will come up with a reason to bust the caps and attack Ted Cruz for standing on principle. The Republican Congress should make President Obama veto the repeal of Obamacare, border security, and countless other conservative policies the American people expect this Congress to deal with. Instead, Mitch McConnell and his leadership team appear poised to enact every letter of President Obama’s agenda just to spite Ted Cruz. Mitch McConnell is melting down.

McConnell has grown completely out of touch with the American people during his three decades in Washington. Even in the face of conservative grassroots activists driving House Speaker

Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) 35%

from power for losing touch with voters, McConnell’s cynical instincts tell him to dig in and reject the very ideals that made him majority leader.

Ted Cruz is running for President with a very clear message. He wants to be the President who will finally take on the Washington cartel that Mitch McConnell presides over. Cruz is well-positioned to go the distance in his bid for the Republican nomination. But, if Senator Cruz doesn’t find himself at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he will be returning to the Senate as the most powerful conservative in America. Either way, Mitch McConnell is on notice – the days of honoring himself and his power will soon come to an end.


Video exposes “clock kid” story as a deceptive stunt


A man debunked the official story behind the “Clock Kid” by building a near-exact copy of Ahmed Mohamed’s clock in about 20 seconds using the guts of a store-bought clock and a briefcase.

As the story goes, Ahmed, a 14-year-old Muslim high school student in Irving, Texas, took his “homemade” clock to school to impress his engineering teacher and was arrested after another teacher thought the clock was a bomb.

“This video challenges that the clock was homemade by showing a nearly identical package being prepared in about 20 seconds,” the video’s description reads.
The clock in the video is a near-perfect clone of the clock Ahmed took to class, including the 9V battery hook-up, the wall cord and the snooze button.

In other words, Ahmed didn’t build a clock but rather ripped the guts out of a store-bought clock and shoved them into a suitcase he took to school.

Ahmed’s clock was likely a Micronta 63-765A sold by Radio Shack in the 1970s, according to Anthony DiPasquale, an electronics expert art Artvoice.com.

“The shape and design is a dead give away… The large screen… The buttons on the front laid out horizontally would have been on a separate board – a large snooze button, four control buttons, and two switches to turn the alarm on and off, and choose two brightness levels,” he wrote. “The clock features a 9v battery back-up, and a switch on the rear allows the owner to choose between 12 and 24 hour time (features like a battery back-up, and a 24 hour time selection seems awful superfluous for a hobby project, don’t you think?)”

“Oh, and that ‘M’ logo on the circuit board mentioned above? Micronta.”

It’s unlikely a hobbyist would silkscreen company logos and part numbers on the circuit boards in a homemade clock, DiPasquale added.

“It’s pretty safe to say already we’re looking at ’70s tech, mass produced in a factory,” he concluded.

What’s really telling is how the mainstream media is running to Ahmed’s defense despite the overwhelming evidence debunking his story.

“Whether Ahmed ‘invented’ a clock or merely reassembled the various components of what was already a clock is really beside the point,” Robby Soave at Reason.com claimed. “Frankly, it just doesn’t matter; of course a 14-year-old is going to use the word ‘invention’ a little more loosely than the U.S. Patent Office.”


Of course it matters because Amhed’s father, Mohamed El-Hassan Mohamed, is a well-known Muslim apologist who has previously been involved in other stunts to call people out for being “Islamiphobic” and the evidence suggests the Mohameds reassembled the clock to look like a suitcase bomb so they could claim Ahmed was “racially profiled.”

“If the parents were involved in the hoax, now you now have a fraud going on because money has been collected on false pretenses,” former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano said, referring to the gifts and scholarships Ahmed has since received.

USA Deports Illegal Alien Wanted For Raping Teen to Death, Killing Her Father



The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol says it’s turned over a previously-deported illegal alien, wanted for raping and killing a 14-year-old and murdering her father in June, to Guatemalan authorities.

Juan Figueroa-Martinez, 27, so brutalized his victim she “subsequently died as a direct result of this crime,” according to the news release. When the victim’s father confronted her alleged murderer, Martinez shot him with a rifle, killing him.

Martinez then fled to the U.S., where he roamed about until Border Patrol agents arrested him near Falfurrias, Texas in August. A violent rapist who broke into the country was at large for a month — and no media outlet has bothered to write up this case except for a sole local news outlet. Martinez had previously been deported after authorities arrested him in New Jersey in March 2013.

It’s unclear why Martinez chose to flee to the U.S. after his alleged rape-murder spree, rather than a neighboring country, like Mexico. One clue might be Mexico’s tough immigration laws:

Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.


Illegal Sentenced to 10 Years Probation After Killing Texas Man

Was illegal alien given preferential treatment after mowing down innocent man?


A Texas family whose loved one was lost in a tragic hit and run accident is disappointed with what they feel is an inadequate punishment meted out to their family member’s killer – an illegal alien from Mexico.

On the morning of March 15, Dallas resident David Benton, 55, was crossing the street in his neighborhood when a car struck him dead.

The man behind the wheel, 22-year-old Mexican national Angel Lopez-Gil, continued driving with Benton on the hood of the vehicle, only stopping at an apartment complex to dump the man’s body.

From there, Lopez-Gil fled on foot and was eventually caught.

Speaking exlusively to Infowars, Benton’s sister, Deborah, says Lopez-Gil had removed his bloodied shirt prior to being caught and that he confessed to officers he had been drinking that night.

“Lopez-Gil hit my brother traveling 65-70 mph” in a 45 mph zone, Deborah said. “David’s legs were severed on impact, his body went through the windshield.”

“[Lopez-Gil] was arrested at gunpoint while trying to climb over a fence,” she described. “The Dallas Police Department did not perform a blood test, even though the officer placing Angel in the paddy wagon stated, under oath, Angel reeked of alcohol.”

“While being interrogated, Angel admitted to drinking tequila and beer all night long,” she added.

Lopez-Gil was subsequently charged with Accident Involving Death, a second degree felony, not fleeing the scene of an accident or driving under the influence.

Last Thursday, a jury ruled him guilty on the one charge, sentencing him to 10 years probation with possible immediate deportation, according to Deborah. If he finds his way back to the US and is caught, he could face 10 years in prison.

Benton’s family is upset David’s killer is essentially being allowed to get away scot-free.

“All I know is my son’s dead and he goes free, and that hurts,” David’s father Don told WFAA.

The family’s plight hits at the core of a key discussion being had on the federal level regarding illegal immigration.

On one hand, the Obama administration is exacerbating the influx by bending over backwards to accommodate illegals with free handouts and promises to reunite them with families already in the US.

On the other, Americans are struggling to cope with criminal immigrants, who – like Lopez-Gil – tend to receive lesser sentencing or deportation, effectively allowing them to get away with various misdeeds or come back to commit more.

Soros-Backed, Bush-Led Immigration Group Plans Attack Ad for CNN Debate

Soros (Associated Press)


The National Immigration Forum Action Fund (NITAF) is preparing to air ads that will attack GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Texas 

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 96%

 for championing immigration positions that serve the interests of Americans.

The ad, titled “Better,” is set to run during Wednesday’s CNN debate. It shows clips of former president Ronald Reagan’s 1989 farewell speech, sans context, with the three GOP contenders prescribing policy solutions to end unchecked, unpopular mass immigration. It minces Reagan’s words to make him appear soft and non-threatening, a kindly grandpa rather than one of the most successful presidents in U.S. history who faced down the Soviet Union.

“I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life… God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace,” Reagan says as gentle piano music plays in the background.

“TODAY,” a blue placard warns, and the video cuts to remarks made by Trump, Walker and Cruz.

“They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists,” Trump can be heard saying. “If I’m elected, they’re going to be out of there, day one.”

“Yeah, absolutely,” Walker cheerfully responses to a reporter asking him if birthright citizenship for anchor babies should be ended.

“We should end birthright citizenship,” Cruz says.

“I will build a great, great wall,” Trump declares.

“RONALD REAGAN HAD A DIFFERENT VISION FOR AMERICA,” another blue placard reads. “In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans,” Reagan says.

“And if there had to be city walls — ” the video cuts to a still featuring immigrants (including two Muslims wrapped up in scarves), “the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.”

The video concludes with the message: “WITH FREEDOM, NOT FEAR… #AMERICAISBETTER.”

Ironically, the ad features clips of the very sort of blue collar workers whose wages are beaten down year after year by waves of immigrants welcomed by Big Business.

And that’s about all I have to say tonight, except for one thing. The past few days when I’ve been at that window upstairs, I’ve thought a bit of the ‘shining city upon a hill.’ The phrase comes from John Winthrop, who wrote it to describe the America he imagined.

What he imagined was important because he was an early Pilgrim, an early freedom man. He journeyed here on what today we’d call a little wooden boat; and like the other Pilgrims, he was looking for a home that would be free.

I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.

Trump echoed Reagan’s words during the first GOP primary, saying, “We need to build a wall, and it has to be done quickly. And I don’t mind building a big, beautiful door in that wall, so people can come to this country legally. 

Reagan also cited America’s founding stock: English settlers and their descendants who built this country, not Mexicans who broke through the border a week ago.

The New York Times reports that the National Immigration Forum Action Fund, whichleftist billionaire George Soros has funded during previous immigration battles, spent about $750,000 on the 60-second ad. NITAF falls under the umbrella of National Immigration Forum (NIF), on whose board of directors sits Jeb Bush, Jr.

The Times also notes that NIF runs a “conservative coalition” called Bibles, Badges, and Business. During the battle to pass the Gang of Eight bill in the summer of 2013, Soros used Bibles, Badges, and Business as a front to create the impression that Christians, cops, and business owners supported mass amnesty and hugely increased levels of immigration. That drew harsh criticism from the Center of Immigration Studies, which called them the “false prophets of Baal.”

Bibles, Badges, and Business and sister group the Evangelical Immigration Table — whichadmitted to Breitbart News it didn’t legally exist — are front groups for the institutional Left that seeks to drown the traditional American nation. NIF accepted millions from Soros in order to push for legislation that benefits Democrats and businesses with no stake in the country beyond the next quarter’s profits.

Americans have suffered severe economic harm from politically-engineering mass immigration: 689,000 Americans lost jobs in August as foreign job gains outpaced natives’ by 2.6 to one.
