Before we begin, let’s establish reality. The Democrat Party is not only the most dishonest organization on the planet; Democrats’ ability to lie with impunity is matched only by the height of their hypocrisy, which knows no bounds. This reality is most manifested in their warnings about the GOP “stealing” elections.
A recent glaring example came from none other than long-irrelevant Hillary Clinton, who desperately clings to the silly notion that she is still relevant and that Democrats hang on her every (lying) word.
As we reported last Tuesday, Hillary delusionally said:
Right wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election.
Uh-huh. And Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from you, right Hillary? [winking emoji]
HILLARY CLINTON: “Right wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election.”

Just one problem. As we reported in October 2021, it was Hillary who did the colluding in 2016, hiring a former British spy named Christopher Steele to compile a mostly-debunked dossier full of salacious allegations against Trump — with the help of members of Russia’s government.
Plenty more examples abound, but let’s move on.
While the “right” to vote has long been a privilege of American citizens, left-wing activists continue their demand to let non-citizens vote. In one example, as reported by Daily Caller, the Washington, D.C. City Council advanced a bill to let virtually anyone vote in local elections — regardless of citizenship or immigration status — as long as they’ve lived in the city for just 30 days.
The bill is so extreme that even the “left-leaning” Washington Post editorial board called it “radical.”
Voting is a foundational right of citizenship. That’s why we oppose a bill, poised to pass the D.C. Council this week, that would allow an estimated 50,000 noncitizen residents to cast ballots in local elections.
This newspaper has opposed efforts over the past decade to rewrite D.C.’s election code so green-card holders could vote.
What’s now before the council is more radical. Some progressives hope that reshaping the electorate will allow them to reshape local politics, prodding the city further to the left on issues such as rent control and spending on social programs.
As WaPo further pointed out, there’s nothing in the bill “to prevent employees at embassies of governments that are openly hostile to the United States from casting ballots. Or foreign students who are studying abroad in Washington for a semester.”
Look, If D.C. Democrats think this radical nonsense is going to further their chances of gaining statehood, they’re more delusional than we already thought they were. But here’s the thing. Unlike other U.S. cities, Washington is a federal district answerable directly to Congress. Under the Constitution and the D.C. Home Rule Act, Congress can block bills passed and cleared by the D.C. City Council and mayor.
As noted by Daily Caller, conservative lawmakers have denounced the radical measure, while Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has already pledged a resolution to overturn it.
Allowing illegal immigrants to vote is an insult to every voter in America. Every single Democrat should be on the record about whether they support this insane policy.
Let’s pause for another reality moment.
When Democrats can’t win under existing rules, their first go-to is cheating. When cheating doesn’t get the job done, they either violate or attempt to change the relevant rules of the game. The existence of the Electoral College and the number of associate justices on the U.S. Supreme are two perfect examples.
So are voting laws, including voter ID laws. The bottom line: Democrats don’t want to make it easier to vote; they want to make it easier to cheat. Allowing non-citizens — including illegal aliens — to vote is a combination of cheating by the Democrat Party and changing the rules.
Even worse, if Democrats thought for a nanosecond that illegals and other non-citizens would vote Republican, would they demand the same changes? Would they support an open-border policy and millions of illegals streaming into the country?
The questions, of course, are rhetorical.
