The mystery behind the Anonymous opinion editorial in the New York Times in 2018 is a mystery no more: it was former Department of Homeland Security bureaucrat Miles Taylor.

I know, you are wondering who the heck is that? Even if he put his name on it most people would’ve had no idea who he was outside of Washington D.C. In fact, the same goes for most people inside Washington D.C.

Like many bureaucrats with self-delusional importance Taylor wasted no time trying to make a big splash about his pontifications of President Donald Trump’s administration and how he believed it would be better run by someone with his impeccable President George W. Bush day credentials.

He’s a pompous ass. Literally, he’s an attention seeking bureaucrat that didn’t have the guts to put his name on the opinion editorial or leave his position at Department of Homeland Security when he claims Trump’s decisions were a national security issue.

Just watch the clip from CNN below. This is the one where he lies about being Anonymous before he admits being anonymous.

He was also the anonymous author of “A Warning,” a really terrible book he wrote the following year.

He admitted he was Anonymous in a three-page statement he posted online.

He described the President as “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective” roiled Washington and set off a hunt for his identity. And the New York Times statement when they ran this bureaucrats anonymous opinion piece attempted to try to explain the very ludicrous decision with

The Times is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure.

Well, there you have it an unsatisfied bureaucrat who was angry at his boss finally came out into the open and guess what, I didn’t really know who he was before and I don’t really care to know about him now.

There is ‘repeated evidence’ of non-citizens voting

There is “repeated evidence” of non-citizens voting, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily, discussing the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act.

“Let me just say this about the overall state of the election issue,” Roy began, explaining that “we’ve got repeated evidence of those who are here illegally — or, or whether they’re here legally — but non-citizens voting.”

“We’ve got studies demonstrating that. We’ve got evidence that it may have tipped the election for Al Franken and his election back in Minnesota. Objective studies have showed…Virginia tossing out 1,500 registered voters just last year. I can go through a laundry list. We’ve got local jurisdictions — Oakland, San Francisco, our nation’s capital in Washington, DC, and New York City — who are registering voters specifically for their state and local elections, but we know that they don’t work hard to make sure they’re not voting in federal elections,” he said, noting that “federal law prohibits [and] limits the ability of states to be able to check and ensure citizenship, so much so that the state of Arizona has to run two systems — one for their state local elections and one for their federal elections.”

“They’re literally bifurcated because they want to ensure citizenship for their state and local elections, but they’re not allowed to for federal elections. Therefore, we need to fix the problem,” he said.

Breitbart News adds:

Further, Roy said, because of the Motor Voter Act — the National Voter Registration Act — passed in the 1990s, the courts have interpreted federal laws to limit the state’s ability to “determine and collect the information necessary for determining and checking citizenship.”

Essentially, Roy said the U.S. has set up a system that requires federal agencies to push out the forms, encouraging individuals to register to vote. And while they ask one to identify if they are a citizen, and while federal law requires one to be a citizen to vote in federal elections, the congressman said there is nothing there to actually check citizenship.

The SAVE Act would help address these issues and correct what Roy described as the “glitch,” making it so every state would require anyone applying to register to vote to prove their citizenship.

“By doing that, though, it is correcting the glitch. It also goes through and it addresses some of the issues that have been complicated. There are states, for example, like North Dakota, which does not have voter registration at all, okay? So they can just show up to vote and don’t have registration…They have their own rules there about what you have to present in order just to vote. And that’s obviously a less populated state than, say, California or Texas or New York or Florida. But, so, we adapt and try to adjust to help with those kinds of situations. But, overall, the purpose of the bill is exactly as you just described, pretty simple,” Roy said. This is a bipartisan issue with massive support.
