Sometimes a clueless leftist media is a conservative’s best friend.

The Los Angeles Times published a big mushy kiss of a puff piece on New Year’s Day about how Dreamers got deeply involved in the 2018 midterm elections that turned so many red Congressional seats blue — particularly in the days after the election through ballot harvesting.

Nowhere were the Dreamers more active than in California, where the almost entirely Republican blue Orange County flipped to 100 percent Democrat red and where these DACA beneficiaries were very active.

Here’s the story’s lead:

“Gabriela Cruz, who was brought to the U.S. illegally when she was 1, couldn’t vote, but in the final hours before the Nov. 6 election, she was making one last run to get people to the polls.

The sun was setting in Modesto when she found Ronald Silva, 41, smoking a cigarette on a tattered old couch behind a group home. He politely tried to wave her off until she reminded him he had a right that she as an immigrant without citizenship didn’t have.

“It could really make a change for us,” said Cruz, 29.

Half an hour later, she was helping Silva look up candidates as he filled out his ballot by the light of her phone. “I’m glad you guys came,” he said. “I was going to leave it in my drawer.”” (Emphasis added)

The notion of an ethnic “us” in America has always been poisonous. It requires the opposite and equal reaction of a different ethnic “them.” Divisive poison that the LA Times flatters.

Stand with us!

So a foreigner, a non-citizen of the United States, was openly working to affect the outcome of our elections. In another context, this is a scandal of enormous proportions. In this context, it is a wonderful of example of immigrant civic involvement.

More from the L.A. Times’ story:

“In California, Dreamers like Cruz phoned voters, walked precincts and protested outside Republican lawmakers’ offices, reaching people who had not been called or visited by either party. Their efforts helped boost turnout among Latinos in this year’s midterm election — 29 million nationwide were eligible to vote, according to the Pew Research Center — which is projected to surpass levels higher than in past presidential election years, political analysts said.

An analysis of data from eight states by the Latino Policy and Politics Initiative at UCLA found the Latino vote grew by an estimated 96% from 2014 to 2018, compared with 37% among non-Latinos. The surge, researchers said, helped move 20 House districts held by Republicans to Democratic control in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, Florida, New Jersey and New York.

In another study, the political research firm Latino Decisions found that an increase in Latino voter turnout contributed to flipping six GOP-held congressional seats in California — four in the once conservative bastion of Orange County and two in the Central Valley that have long eluded Democrats.”

In eight states, the Hispanic vote doubled in four years? Does that in any way seem legitimate, in a real sense?

Let’s be clear. The Democratic Party employed the manpower of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of foreigners living in the United States to effect the outcome of an election. And the media applauds. Further, there were no controls on the actions of those involved with ballot harvesting — whether legal or illegal — in how they handle ballots.

Is there really any doubt that the Time’s example, Gabriela Cruz, or other Democrat ballot harvesters, would be highly incentivized to “help” these indifferent and obviously politically ignorant “voters” in how they should vote? Remember her comment about “us.” She was pursuing Hispanics to vote in Democrats to help other Hispanics like her in the country illegally become legalized.

In most states, laws require political activity at polling places to be a certain distance from where voters are actually voting to limit undo political pressure.

But in ballot harvesting, there is no such thing. Quite the opposite, with people hunting down registered voters who had not voted because they want specific votes to be cast. They are not looking to simply turn out voters. They are turning out Democrat votes by people too indifferent to know the issues, the candidates or even vote until someone knocks on their door and essentially does it for them.

And in 2018, in California, a lot of the people doing that were not even American citizens.

      This is appalling, and no, he’s not twisting it at all. There are NO controls on this ballot harvesting nonsense that California has legalized. Who’s to say Ms. Cruz didn’t just toss the votes she didn’t like into a trash can? Where I live, political advocates aren’t even allowed in the parking lots of polling places, lest they unduly influence voters. If an advocate like Ms. Cruz is holding the guy’s hand while he votes, she obviously has enormous sway over his decisions. I wonder how many dementia patients in California suddenly got clear-headed enough to cast a vote in the mid-terms…

      But since California has made this garbage legal, I suppose the Republicans will just have to use the same underhanded tricks next time, if they want to have any chance of winning a seat in California ever again.

        Maria you are sooooooo correct. Question: when did it become legal ( vote cast) Thougt it was loop hole. NOW do we have to wait two years for the next election or can we issue recalls, lawsuits ? Judicial Watch is outstanding in winning the voter roll removal of 1.5 million names but what next ? I thank all outlets for ther coverage of California but anyone who lives here knows the media does not report anything that is not a liberal agenda item ( Pelosi. Harris, Feinstein, Schiiff). The lack of transparency is staggering.
        I could go on and on with so much to cover. We need the WHOLE nation to be outraged over the politics in Cali. We need Trump to hold a rally here to let these politicians know the right is not dead just scared to come forward over violence when we do.

          You know we have knocked on thousands of doors as well as made thousands of calls to remind people to turn in their ballots and where to turn it in at. In CO; the law is clear; you get 10 ballots total in the election cycle to turn in. Our policy is that unless the person is old / ill and cant take it themselves; they are the ones to take it and no we dont help them fill it out unless they ask and then we are frank.

          Most people dont need help. They do their own research.

          Yes we are a US citizen and yes we have run for office several times. We dont approve of non citizens; especially illegals doing this. They can also do 1099 work and get paid to walk and knock on doors; something that also isnt right. This however is CA and due to the super majority in both Houses and the Gov; like we have now in CO; they can do whatever they want. Someone needs to challenge it though.

          NO amnesty. NO work permits. NO nothing but deportation.

            We should also add; they dont allow foreigners to give money to campaigns so how is this any different? This is time and borrowed resources (money to pay walkers / phone calls/ etc)

            Great point, Jim.

    This is Taxation Without Representation.

    S. Peterson I mostly agree with you, however this is not how things should be done. Attacking this problem head on is my preferred solution, instead of jumping on the bandwagon and doing something that is clearly unethical.

    I don’t believe in Democrats or Republicans, however all we have right now is the Republican Senate. Those of us who understand the purpose of the Constitution, and who understand the need for “Economic Nationalism” can’t play these stupid games with the Democrats.

    At this point in time, this is clearly Taxation without Representation.

    Perhaps if enough people stopped paying taxes until these games were put aside, Congress would listen.

    As it stands, this is not a Constitutional Republic, it is a Corporatist Oligarchy.

    We are better than this.
