Back in 2016, when broadcaster Lars Larson attempted to find out whether one Arcan Cetin was a citizen of the US, ICE, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told him, essentially, “Sorry, our obligation is to protect this migrant’s privacy.”

“Who,” you ask, “is Mr. Cetin”? Cetin is a contributor to the phenomenon I term “murder-by-Muslim-immigrant.” He murdered five innocents, north of Seattle.

Arcan Cetin voted, reports Mr. Larson. But nobody at ICE was willing to tell a good citizen like our broadcaster if Cetin voted legally or not.

As it turned out, a sigh of relief was in order. The stellar Mr. Cetin, who, like most Muslim immigrants, voted Democrat, violated the Sixth Commandment five times, but, thank God, did not appear to have violated the commandment against voter fraud. Rumor has it that the murderer had been awarded citizenship, although it’s impossible to ascertain.

The point made here is that you can rest assured voter fraud is rampant in the US as in any banana republic—and not only because Americans are barred from checking whether a Muslim murderer is a fellow-citizen. But, rather, because the progressive, globalist left has fought down-and-dirty to bar any proof of citizenship at the time of voting.

Yes, the law requires, in my state, as in most of these United States, that you be a citizen, as well as a resident of the state in which you’re voting. But you don’t have to provide proof of citizenship, when voting.

To vote in Washington State, as in most states, all that’s needed is a driver’s license or a current State ID card. Essentially, the American voting system, thanks to the triumph of left-liberalism, is based on an honor system.

Journalist John Fund’s research has shown that when they vote; “80 percent of non-citizens vote Democratic.” And that “6.4 percent of non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 election.” Funds’ sources confirm that a significant number of “non-citizens register as voters” and have voted in sufficient numbers to sway elections. And when these efforts fail, the government might step-in and commit indirect voter fraud.

For instance, in 2016, or thereabouts, the Feds wrongly granted citizenship to hundreds facing deportation, an “error” the culprits where unwilling to correct.

The point is that the progressive left, Obama’s DOJ, in particular, has pursued every legal remedy in the book against states seeking to require proof of citizenship from voters.

The point is that we’re a sprawling country of competing interests, in which raw, ripe democracy has long-since usurped the old constitutional republic, where limits were placed on the power of thumping majorities.

In a rank, raw democracy, where might makes right, and almost every vote is a lien against someone’s private property; voter-fraud by default is a big deal.

Donald Trump’s supporters might be the losers in something of a rigged electoral system; but they’re certainly not stupid.

That’s another oft-repeated insult. Trump’s base of supporters is referred to as whites without college degrees. Again-and-again we’ve heard that Mr. Trump over-performed with white men without college degrees. The reference is intended not only as a demographic marker, but as a Mark of Cain.

Implicit in tethering a lack of education to Trump support is that the more educated a voter, the smarter. And the smarter the voter, the more likely he or she is to support the Democrats.

Correlation, of course, is not causation. My hypothesis, however, points to a confounding variable or factor—in other words, another variable related to both education and voting-patterns that could account for the good sense displayed by degreeless Trump supporters.

Voters without college or university degrees have not been institutionalized during life’s formative years.

Voters without college or university degrees have not spent years in the tertiary school asylums, where, as in Edgar Allan Poe’s “The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether,” inmates in an asylum overpower their wardens, tar and feather them, throw them into underground cells, and proceed to have “a jolly season of it.” (Poe’s story’s point, mind you, was that the inmates are at least as “sane” as the wardens.)

In other words, many of Trump’s supporters are less likely to have been brainwashed and propagandized by the asphyxiating, postmodern, racial and gender agitprop that makes college-educated kids insufferable, and subject to group-think and to the atavistic acting-out, commensurate with “education” emphasizing a wanton abandoning of inhibitions.

Spending protracted time in college or university is almost guaranteed to turn-out individuals whose uniformity of opinion is as scary as its uninformed nature.

Support for Trump is associated with a less propagandized population.

In my thoroughly propagandized County, 70% approved a Charter Amendment to transfer property (we all pay for) to be used for low-income housing (read the homeless, to whom the City of Seattle has already been ceded.) Don’t complain, neighbors, when IT hits the fan.

Also, 57% percent of subjects in my county, King County, decided to relinquish their sovereignty and let a Council of Jenny Durkans choose their sheriff for them—make the sheriff a patronage position.

Most of my neighbors voted to allow the political class to invest public money in causes driven by their politics.

Majorities opted to assign more taxpayer-funded lawyers to assorted claims-makers and add more protected-species categories to already oppressively expansive, extant law.

Washingtonians said “hell yes” to more twerking, transgendered genitalia in the faces of their toddlers.

The neighbors seconded Charter Amendment No. 3, which trashes the word “citizen,” and replaces it with “member of the public” or “resident,” all the better to facilitate wealth transfer. The People of The World passing through our county may get goodies not theirs or vote to get them if denied.


Neighbors voted to double down on our demoralized and defunded police force with more sensitivity training. Oh, and should you call in a burglary, why, a “mental-health professional” may arrive on your doorstep. It’s called “resourcing alternatives.” Yes, English is also on the wane in the Evergreen State.

Gov. Jay Inslee won 58% of the vote. If you’re among the business owners who voted for this chap—suck it up! Having voted for Inslee’s internment terrorism, you can’t expect sympathy, now, can you?

Love thy neighbor as thyself? Forgive me, vengeful God of the Hebrews, but it’s getting harder and harder …

    Another good column my Mercer.

    This – “In a rank, raw democracy, where might makes right, and almost every vote is a lien against someone’s private property; voter-fraud by default is a big deal.”, says it all.

    There it is. That’s the problem. If the libtards only ever fucked themselves into the dirt, I would pay good tax money to see it.

    But they don’t. They want everyone else to pay for their retardation before and after it blows up in their faces. Can we repeal the 13th Amendment just for white libs? I really want to see some social sciences professor picking fruits and tobacco with no other lot in life than arduous, unpleasant manual labor, getting roasted into an early grave by cleansing sunlight. I want to see all the libtard fucks worked into a pit doing shit jobs they think they’re too good to do.

    Amen brother.The problem is it’s not just tards on the left.
    They’ve taken over the asylum,everywhere , if you look hard enough.
    Almost all institutions are being overwhelmed. Intentionally,I assert.
    37% recently surveyed said their job was not necessary.Over 1 in 3…
    Blame the wealthy pimps, not the poor peasants,unless you are one.

    As a South African I find your bleating about voter fraud sickening, you and your ilk drove the country of your birth into “democracy”, which is nothing more here, than a racial headcount. The blood of murdered farmers cries out against you, so suck it up witch.

  6. The college educated category should be defined better.

    College educated includes STEM graduates along with those with humanities or social sciences bullshit degrees.

    That the non STEM people vote for a Trump alternative is understandable since they believe in nonsense and are therefore more receptive to the left’s message.

    • Agree: Realist
  7. You really need to move to a safer part of America, like Wyoming or Idaho, you King County critters.
    Once the effects of these insane policies kick in, property prices will plummet. So hit the road while you can, if you can.

    Voter fraud in this country amounts to Americans thinking their vote means something.

  10. No mention of voter-approved, Referendum 90.

    WA voters gave a go-ahead to the legislature’s plan for the state’s public schools (prisons) to provide “comprehensive” (you can guess what that means) sex ed to students (inmates).

    Starting in Sept/2021, such instruction will begin in 6th grade.

    In 2022, kindergarteners (and above) will be subjected to the, er, instruction.

  11. @Truth Hurts the Liars

    You colossal fool:

    “….you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:18, Hebrew Testament)

    In Hebrew, but you can’t read it:

    יח לֹֽא־תִקֹּ֤ם וְלֹֽא־תִטֹּר֙ אֶת־בְּנֵ֣י עַמֶּ֔ךָ וְאָֽהַבְתָּ֥ לְרֵֽעֲךָ֖ כָּמ֑וֹךָ

    You might live to see this; if the US gets past its Minsky Moment and actually installs a Harris-Biden administration, its Pol Pot moment won’t be far behind. You can be sure that “free” university will morph into very rationed university spots and a massive reduction in education budgets as other social welfare programmes will need to be boosted to keep in check the chaos inherent in the new system. Along in the camps with 75 million Trump supporters will be a number of otherwise useless eaters working the fields, working in exchange for their UBI, to feed our urban elite. Heck, you might even get a whole lot more law and order in the new system, à la Lavrentiy Beria (is Hillary too old for the job?).

    Do you think they were kidding when they said we’ll own nothing and that they are making lists?

  13. that’s right, Mercer-Issacsohn:

    Trump supporters aren’t stupid. They are

    complete idiots. 4 years of (((Kushner engineered))) betrayal on every white/populist issue Trump ran on,

    and most of them went out and voted for him again. 4 more years of Trump,

    and ‘Murkan whites are dead meat. A Biden-Harris, i.e. (((Emhoff)))) regime

    might wake a few of them up. I say “might” and “few” because today’s Whites,

    in ‘Murka and Europe,

    are not the Whites who built the great cathedrals and wrote the great symphonies.

    they are a pitiful remnant,

    happy so long as their daily warm shower of Jewbucks continues.

    @ILANA Mercer

    Yes, the Old Testament says to love your neighbor as yourself; the New Testament says to love everyone on Earth as your neighbor. The commandments of Yahweh only apply within the chosen tribe, as evidenced by the way they kill, rape, and steal their way back into the promised land in the Bible. Jesus Christ subverts Jewish tribal identity by giving them a new commandment to love everyone. He also redefines the chosen people to be only those who believe in him.

  15. @ILANA Mercer

    The Jewess is the colossal fool…

    Was Moses loving neighbors as himself, when he commanded that his entire Wife’s Tribe be destroyed?

    Was the King named David loving Uriah as himself when he stole his Wife, then ordered Uriah to certain death in battle?

    Were the Jews so inclined to love others as themselves… EVER?

    You snotty bitch. Go to Hell. Join your Tribe there.

  16. If you spent more time learning and less time congratulating yourself on your own cleverness, you might have known: There is no such thing as hell for the Jews, a purely christian invention…

  17. Career politicians wish to turn the USA into a slave owning Bwanana republic

    There are few swing states because the elections can be rigged by the incumbent who use the Dominion electronic voting machines

    These rigged machines can be used to bring in the antichrist agenda as they leave no verifiable paper trail

    If the supreme court does not uphold election integrity THEN ALL IS LOST

    Only President Donald Trump can bring back Gods blessing to US America

  18. Anon[360] • Disclaimer says:
    @Truth Hurts the Liars

    What distinguishes Christianity is the «Love one another as God loves you [all]»: it’s the fact that there’s a God that has charity (love, in more popular terms) for His creatures.

    Of course, the stress on the «love one another» part is much more marked, and consistent, in Christianity than in the previous Abrahamitic faith, but the 2 share the teaching somehow.

    I am not sure your comment is in the spirit of Jesus, though.

  19. @Truth Hurts the Liars

    The Joke is the one that only has that (((LOL))) as a reply.
