Allen West: No More Tolerating the Intolerant

When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide -- Col. Allen West I have shared the aforementioned quote often, mainly when addressing the scourge of Islamic jihadism and terrorism in the West. However, there is a clear and present reason to apply this same quote to present day America and the scourge of progressive socialism.

Allen West: To Support and Defend…

I pray everyone had a truly blessed Resurrection weekend; that is what this past weekend was about. It was about one person, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, laying down His life for us to have eternal life. Last week I was honored to narrate Haydn's string quartet, The Last Seven Words of Christ on the Cross. It was humbling to read and explain the meaning of Christ's final words spoken from the cross.As well, this weekend allowed me to reflect back on some other words, four of which are the title of this missive. They are words that some men and women have vowed over the years in America. They are the words that have committed these Americans to sacrifice and perhaps make the last full measure of devotion—to give their lives--so that others can have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

ACRUs Blackwell: DeSantis is right: A state election crimes agency will make elections more secure

The Left and their liberal media allies love to point to the low number of election crimes prosecuted as proof that there is little to no voter fraud. They claim these low figures prove we have secure elections and that we do not need election integrity reforms.There is one major problem with this argument. Far too often, county election supervisors refer election crimes to county prosecutors, and these referrals gather dust. Prosecuting election crimes requires resources, time, and expertise of election law that most local county prosecutors do not have. Prosecutors also face political pressure to not prosecute election crime cases.

ACRU Amicus Brief Supports Supreme Court Arizona Voting Integrity Policy Win

By reversing the Ninth Circuit’s decision, as The ACRU argued it should, Arizona’s race-neutral, generally applicable election rules limiting out-of-precinct voting and ballot harvesting will stand without any danger of preemption by federal statute.

Army spouse: the practical realities of overseas military voting must be simplified

Military voting is of critical importance to Armed Forces command. But like any bureaucracy, execution can be overly cumbersome and confusing. Army spouse Tracey Miller examines the complexities of military voting (from personal experience) noting that instructions like, “fold this piece of paper and make it into an envelope” are confusing and serve as a barrier to military voting. Our service members shouldn’t have to haul around scissors, tape and extra paper in election years.

Military votes could be key in Georgia’s January 5th Senate runoffs

The United States Senate, and perhaps our very Constitutional liberties, depends on the outcome of the Georgia Senate elections — unique in that the state’s two Senate seats are in play at the same time. The Georgia Secretary of State is currently sending out absentee ballots to Georgia residents posted in the military overseas, or at other US bases. We encourage all Georgian members of the Armed Forces to complete and return their absentee ballots as soon as they are received.
