WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah declared today that Donald Trump’s bogus claim that millions of people voted illegally in the presidential election is actually true, while admitting that he has no evidence to back up the president-elect’s assertion.
Farah wrote that around 2 million undocumented immigrants voted—a number that he seems to have picked out of thin air—and they all voted for Hillary Clinton. He urged Trump to lead an effort to enact voting restrictions in all 50 states to stop the nonexistent problem of mass voter fraud.
If states don’t enact new laws to ensure that only U.S. citizens vote, Farah wrote, the electoral votes from those states “should not count because they are unconstitutional.”
There has been a concerted effort to ensure illegal votes are cast. That is the only reason for the movement to strike down photo ID laws or identification that would demonstrate the citizenship status of those who go to the polls.
He “lost” the popular vote, we’re told, by 2 million votes.
Does anyone doubt that in 19 states requiring no proper identification to vote Nov. 8 that at least 2 million votes were illegal?
That’s right. Only 31 states have passed laws requiring voters to show some form of identification at the polls.
Personally, I would be shocked to learn that there weren’t at least 2 million votes cast for Hillary Clinton that were invalid.
And that’s something Trump should deal with as president.
What about states that refuse to confine voting in federal elections to citizens? I would say you could make a constitutional case that those electoral votes should not count because they are unconstitutional.
Am I wrong?
It might once have seemed to be an impossible battle to win, but the election of Donald Trump – by popular vote or by constitutional Electoral College vote – may just make this a political war we can win. It won’t be easy, but Trump is certainly on the right track through his criticism of voter fraud.
Even if there is any doubt about the extent of such illegal voting, it must be stopped cold to preserve constitutional integrity.
