‘Second Chance Voters’ Campaign in Florida To Help Felons Vote and Get Jobs

Published

on

Today a new campaign is officially launching in Florida for encouraging Felons to vote, increasing their opportunity through jobs, and lessening the stigma around the issue of felons voting. The ‘Second Chance Voter Campaign’ is lead by experienced Councilman Steve Nadine. With an official launch on their website here at www.SecondChanceVoters.org , you can see the intent of the organization and goals set forth.

Karyn Turk of Red America Radio and Populist Wire is also a leading effort in the campaign, she says

“Although many of us were not for, Amendment Four, before it passed. As Republicans it is of extreme importance that we motivate these voters. This new population is a great opportunity for the GOP. We must work with these voters to educate them on republican candidates and important initiatives”

The Press Release States:

Second Chance Voters is led by Steve Nadine. Steve previously served as a County Commissioner and City Councilman and has also served on Alabama’s Sentencing Commission. These experiences have given him a unique and highly qualified credible resume especially in light of his status as an ex-felon and who served his time and probation.

Second Chance Voters will also be a proactive in leading the efforts to work with local and state leaders to effectively and efficiently implement the important components of The First Step Act:

Second Chance Voters will focus their efforts on the following:

Registering ex-felons and their families to vote.

Creating workforce development programs to provide employment opportunities.

Working with Local and State Leaders on tax incentives and tie-ins with economic development organizations to educate and train those incarcerated in local, state and federal prisons, a step critical to reducing recidivism.

Proving guidance on prison, probation and prosecution reform after the First Step Act is implement.

Creating outreach programs for at risk ex-felons and those who are scheduled to be released.

Conducting research on how The First Step Act reforms will effect local, state and federal prosecution and how it will impact the currently under-funded prison systems.

Launching a “Reforming from Within” initiative which will focus on how vitality important it is to educate the ex-felon and those set to be released that this is their Second Chance to proactively participate in their communities and that they can exercise those rights through voting.

Educating the public about the stigma and discrimination faced ex-felon including efforts to ban “checking the box.” These include the many jobs and professions from which they are restricted.

Lobbying in all states that currently restrict ex-felon voting rights.

A lot of what this Campaign is doing is holding politicians like newly elected Governor Rob Desantis to not hold up this right for Felons who have completed their sentence, fine, and probation. It’ll make sure the rights of Felons are restored as soon as possible, as close to the original intent of Amendment Four. This is going to empower any individual who takes it upon themselves to get their rights that had been previously been disenfranchised.

Founder of the Campaign, Steve Nadine is no newcomer when it comes to politics and especially this issue. Steve has an extensive record as the he was at the forefront of the battle to give rights to ex-offenders. He was most important in creating the ‘Jump Start’ program which offered jobs and opportunities to juvenile offenders who were completed a military-style boot camp.

This will be a great way to not only help felons get on their feet but help realize their larger role in a Democratic society that has left them out of the process.

Progressive Delaware Website Uses Picture of African-American Candidate as Clickbait for Transgender Candidate.

Published

on

Wilmington, DEBlue Delaware — a far-left website that seeks to cover politics in Delaware from a liberal and progressive perspective, and hold Democratic office holders accountable to their ideology — used a Republican Candidates’ picture, Steven Washington, as a link to an article supporting his opponent, Tim McBride. Tim now goes by the name of Sarah, and is a transgender activist-turned-Delaware State Senate candidate. Both candidates are running for Senate in Delaware’s 1st Senate District. 

https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://i0.wp.com/bluedelaware.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/14257573_1309511252405875_2121716808778731178_o.jpg?fit%3D1079%252C880%26ssl%3D1%26resize%3D350%252C200&imgrefurl=https://bluedelaware.com/2019/07/09/sarah-mcbride-to-run-for-the-1st-senate-district/&tbnid=erRoKRZxPXM4nM&vet=1&docid=0Cr1dQEiYD1FQM&w=350&h=200&q=steve+washington+for+sd1&source=sh/x/im

When reached for comment regarding his thoughts, Steven Washington said: “I’m not sure that it was purposeful, but it doesn’t send a good message, and displays implicit racial bias.” 

When Mr. Washington first announced his candidacy, McBride’s Campaign Manager, Phoebe Lucas, released a statement claiming that the Republican party recruited heavily to find someone to run against McBride, because it 

“sees Sarah as a threat…picked a candidate who is already testing messages to attack Sarah on ‘family values.’ And we all know what that means.” 

Populist Wire isn’t exactly sure which candidate ranks higher on the Intersectionality score at this time. According to sources familiar with the GOP of Delaware, the party isn’t actively recruiting candidates to target specific threats, but rather to field a candidate for every contestable office.  

Sarah McBride, whose birth name is Tim, is a man suffering from gender confusion. According to researchers such as Dr. Paul McHugh from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, people suffering from such confusion have higher than usual rates of suicide, which is not reduced after “gender transition” therapy or “sex reassignment” surgery:

“Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men. All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify,’ In that lies their problematic future,” 

Chris Hyde, from Birmingham University’s Aggressive Research Intelligence facility, when discussing gender reassignment surgeries states: 

“there’s still a large number of people who have the surgery but remain traumatized – often to the point of suicide.”

A brief overview of ‘Sarah’ McBride’s financial reports indicate that the majority of their donors are from out-of-state donors who enjoy enabling such confusion and suffering. 

Delaware’s 1st Senate District is predominantly African-American. Transgenderism is a tough sell in that community, but usually Republicans are too. This should be interesting. Steven Washington’s website is:

Neo-Con & Israeli Puppet Dan Crenshaw Lies About America First Patriots, Just Like He Did About Trump

Published

on

Dan Crenshaw continued an onslaught of attacks against Nick Fuentes, Michelle Malkin, and America First patriots by labeling them “vehement racists, antisemites, & ethnic nationalists”. This is a far cry from the truth. He also went on again to call America First patriots as ‘antisemitic’ in a response to Michelle Malkin blocking him. Dan Crenshaw also supported Red Flag laws, something that also got him a lot of flack. He also criticized Donald Trump in 2016 on top of coming out in favor of same-sex marriage, all of which that has been questioned and exposed of Mr. McCain, oops, we mean Crenshaw.

It is very apparent Mr. Crenshaw has nothing but an ‘Israel First’ policy, constantly making linear conclusions between conservatism and support for Israel. Making his own opinion that if you don’t support Israel, you don’t support America. A very sick and warped view of America Politics in general, some would say traitorous. Dan Crenshaw represents the worse the establishment can offer so far, he must be unseated, exposed, and further more shammed from the conservative movement, along with all the other conservative grifters and Conservative Inc. types.

Since the ‘Groyper War’ Phase 1 was a decisive victory following the November 14th ‘Change my Mind’ rip-off Charlie Kirk attempted to pull off, this late weekend we’ve seen a new onslaught of attacks from many mainstream Republican pundits, attacking Nick Fuentes and Michelle Malkin for their American First allegiance. Conservative Inc. is scared of the true conservatives exposing them and their big donor’s motives & hypocrisy. Even YAF (Young Americans Foundation) who even recently hosted Michelle Malkin, disavowed “holocaust deniers, white nationalists, street brawlers, or racists”. A slew of other clips and comments were made by Guy Benson, Michael Knowles, Stephen Miller, Bradon Tatum,Jordan Schachtel, & Matt Walsh.
