European Council President Calls Trump Threat To Europe

European Council President Donald Tusk called US President Donald Trump an ‘existential threat’ to Europe Tuesday.

Tusk wrote an open letter to the leaders of 27 Council member states, in which he listed the US President as a “threat” to the European Union alongside China, Russia, radical Islam, war, and terrorism.

Tusk cited “worrying declarations by the new American administration” as the basis for his including President Trump with other threats to the EU. He said that the threats “make our future highly unpredictable.”

I can well understand how the EU which has been ignoring it’s members could feel threatened by the idea that governments should work for their people.


Experts Find California Voter Registration System “Highly Susceptible” to Fraud

California’s voter registration system is “highly susceptible to being compromised,” because of immigration policies protecting the Golden State’s 2.4 million illegal immigrants, authorities have told Fox News.

The integrity of elections may be compromised by a lack of oversight of non-citizens registering and voting, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative and senior legal fellow for the Institute for Constitutional Government at The Heritage Foundation.

“If you are talking about California, the state is apparently relying on the illegal alien to tell the state they shouldn’t be registered. There is still an honor system,” said von Spakovsky, co-author of the book “Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.”

—Fox News

Well I am shocked. Shocked I tell you. That a state that grants drivers licenses to illegal aliens without any confirmation of citizenship and has no method checking the citizenship of voters would have a problem with voter fraud.

The whole country has been wondering about that.
