It’s official. The New York City Council passed the bill allowing an estimated 800,000 noncitizens to vote in municipal elections. The vote was 33 to 14, with two abstentions. Unless Mayor Bill de Blasio vetoes the bill, it will become law.

Mayor de Blasio has previously stated he had no plans to veto the bill. Republicans have threatened to challenge the bill, saying it is unconstitutional. Even a potential legal challenge, de Blasio has already warned is unlikely to survive.

National Review reports:

The measure would allow non-citizens to vote for mayor, City Council members, and other municipal officeholders but would not allow them to vote in federal elections, such as for president or members of Congress, or in state elections that elect the governor, judges, and legislators.

The move will allow noncitizens who have been lawful permanent residents of the city for at least 30 days, as well as those authorized to work in the U.S. and DACA recipients, to vote in municipal elections.

If the measure becomes law, the Board of Elections would be tasked with outlining an implementation plan by January. That plan would be required to include voter-registration rules and provisions to create separate ballots for municipal races to safeguard federal and state elections.

New York City would join a dozen communities across the U.S. that allow noncitizens to vote in local elections, including eleven towns in Maryland and two in Vermont, the Associated Press reported.

    Why bother to have a country or citizenship at all, if this is what these idiots are going to do?

    As a matter of fact, why don’t they just let people in Russia vote!?? At least then they would be correct when they accused the Russians of interfering in our elections!!!

      This subject is infuriating the only difference will be, now when they vote it’ll be legal. They’ve always voted and they DO vote in presidential elections too! That’s the only reason why California is a blue state.
      Without them and dead voters AND double voters Democrats would NEVER get elected.
      LMAO NOT‼️

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
