NY Judicial Ruling On Non-Citizen Voting Comes Just In Time for Big Governor’s Race

New York’s facing the first Governor’s race since Cuomo reminded the world that you can go from ‘hero’ to ‘zero’ in a New York minute. And a recent court ruling will make it a lot more interesting.

It’s the first vote since the pandemic lockdowns and a chance to find out if the New Yorkers who are still around after the lockdowns still have confidence in the woman who took his place.

Around 300,000 of New York City’s wealthiest residents who fled during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic two years ago collectively earned $21 billion in total income in 2019, according to new data released by the Internal Revenue Service.

The sum, which was gleaned from IRS tax filings that were received in 2020 and 2021 represents the largest flight of capital from the Big Apple ever recorded. — NYPost

Almost immediately after Kathy Hochul took her seat behind Cuomo’s old desk she was outdoing her predecessor’s bad Covid takes:

Since then she has had plenty of other opportunities to disappoint New Yorkers, and now she has to face the voters at the ballot box.

Her opponent has been decided. Congressman Lee Zeldin has now won the Republican primary. He will be facing her in November.

But her performance during the lockdowns isn’t the only handicap she’s facing this fall. A ruling in the State Supreme Court just undercut their voter base of non-citizens.

State Republican leaders applauded a state Supreme Court justice’s decision Monday that could block non-citizens from voting in New York City elections beginning next year under a local law that the judge said violates the state’s constitution.

The case flowed from a challenge in Staten Island of the New York City Council’s decision in December to give voting rights to people who are documented immigrants but have not attained legal citizenship. Republican critics of the law have suggested Democrats sought the measure to help bolster their election chances; the law was expected to add about 800,000 potential new voters. –TimesUnion

We can’t be the only ones who think 800,000 is an awful lot of votes. Non-citizens could become a very influential voting block.

It brings back what was said in that leaked memo by Jennifer Palmieri, a former Hillary campaign staffer, back in 2018…

The Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund memo, which circulated Monday, called on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

The memo from the left-leaning think tank also said that protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” but also a “critical component” in winning elections.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read. — FoxNews

The citizens will get their chance to speak.

With crime rampant, and so much else going wrong in the city, this election will be an interesting one to watch. It might even be bad enough that they decide to stop voting Democrat … at least for a while.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
