Kansas is working to bring back its voter ID law.
On March 19, 2019, Kansas’s solicitor general Toby Crouse requested that a federal appeals court reinstate the state’s law mandating that people provide information demonstrating that they are American citizens before registering to vote.
The original law was introduced in an effort to combat the rise in non-citizens voting in elections. This voter ID law was on the books between 2013 and 2016 but was ultimately overturned by a lower court due to pressure from state attorneys and plaintiffs.
This law met its demise in a hearing before a three-judge panel in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Salt Lake City. Judge Jerome Holmes cited claims that the law prevented more than 30,000 people from registering to vote despite all of them being citizens. As a result, Kansas’s voter ID law was blocked for the time being.
Kansas state officials claimed that problems with the enforcement of Kansas’s voter ID law in the three years it was in effect were fixable. In 2018, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach defended Kansas’s voter ID law in court. Despite his efforts to resurrect voter ID in Kansas, Kobach was derailed by Judge Julie Robinson in a ruling that halted the enforcement of the state’s voter ID law.
Kansas’s voter registration law required that prospective voters provide documents like a driver’s license, birth certificate, U.S. passport or naturalization papers before registering to vote. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Kansas’s law took further steps than the 35 other states with voter ID. In sum, this current case has tremendous national implications as far as ID laws are concerned.
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach made it a point during his time in office to champion voter ID. For his efforts in combatting voter fraud, President Trump appointed Kobach as the head of the Voter Fraud Commission which was disbanded in 2018.
Voter ID laws are some of the more sensible measures that states can take to combat the negative effects of mass migration. Staving off mass migration requires a multi-pronged approach at both the state and federal level.
Even though Trump has faced many roadblocks at the federal level, activists cannot afford to throw in the towel. The states are still valid options for combatting mass migration. The stakes are too high at this point to not fight back against mass migration, lest we want European-style migrant ghettoes popping up throughout America and an accelerated collapse of America’s already bloated welfare state.
Let’s hope the courts come to their senses and recognize the validity of voter ID laws.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
