“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
You’ve got to hand it to the Democrats—they know how to get their hands on power, even when the American people don’t want them anywhere near it.
When they lose an election—and they lose plenty—they don’t just take their lumps, learn their lesson, and adjust their platform to win next time.
Instead, they use the Supreme Court to pass laws the American people don’t want, or they use impeachment to overturn elections they don’t win.[Sponsored] The Best Fruit for Fat-Burning
And sometimes, they get creative—they change the rules about who gets to vote in those elections in the first place.
The media’s busy celebrating the Democrats’ big win in Virginia in Tuesday’s election—but only The Horn will tell you that the liberals won because they changed the electorate years ago.
Now they’re planning on taking the same tactics nationwide.
This time, they want to let 16-year-olds vote in 2020.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist buddies in The Squad are not only on board—as Bernie Sanders would say, they wrote the damn bill.

Socialist Congressman Ayanna Pressley, D-M.A., even decided that this should be her top priority in Congress.
As her very first amendment, Pressley introduced the “For the People” Act, which would give 16-year-old children the right to vote for president.
She had the support of AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar—but also House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she has “always been for lowering the voting age to 16,” so she would “welcome” the bill.
Even in the Democrat-controlled House, it went down in flames back in March by a vote of 305-126 (with one Republican vote).
But the Left doesn’t let a little thing like losing interfere with its plans. Now, it’s trying to get teenagers to vote again.
This week Newsweek ran a column admitting it wants radical left-wingers to indoctrinate kids, then have them outvote their parents and grandparents.

The writer, Nancy Deutsch, said her idea of perfect voters are “teens like Greta Thunberg, or the students from Parkland, Florida,” who “consistently demonstrate independent thought, deep understanding, clear convictions, and tremendous maturity”… because they repeat what adult leftists tell them!
“These exceptional young people are far more informed than the average adult when it comes to key issues of our time”—which means they’re more liberal.
It’s no secret why the liberals want to change the ground rules—and it’s not because of “civic engagement. It’s because teenagers are way more likely to vote for a democratic socialist than Baby Boomers or older Americans.
A Pew poll shows that 70 percent of Millennials want a bigger government that raises taxes, spends more of your paycheck and spreads the wealth from earners to welfare recipients more than it already does.
Only 30 percent approve of the job President Donald Trump has been doing.
“This is not about equal rights, as many on the Left like to say… This is a political ploy,” Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform said on Wednesday’s “Fox and Friends.”
He said Democrats only want teens to vote, because “the Left sees an opportunity to add a million, two million voters to their party, and they’re trying to capitalize on it.”
It’s a little more than that: There were 8 million people born in the U.S. between 2002 and 2003, making them 16 and 17 years old now.
If 70 percent of them vote for Democrats, that adds 5.6 million Democrat voters just in time for the 2020 presidential election.
“Democrats think they’ll gain more votes,” said Rep. Rodney Davis, R-I.L. “It will institutionalize a Democrat majority here in this House of Representatives.”
But don’t take Phillips’s or Davis’s word for it—the Democrats admit it.
Deutsch wrote that she wanted teens to vote, because “the adolescent brain is actively making new neural connections, meaning that habits formed during these years can be long-lasting”…so if they start voting for Democrats now, it will carry over when they’re adults.

Pelosi let the cat out of the bag in a press conference back in March. “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school,” she said.
Another Democrat in the House, Lacy Clay, D-M.O., said she wanted the Democratic Party to get its hooked into kids “when they are in high school,” because teenagers have “such a heightened interest” “climate and gun safety and you name it. And that would be a time for them to be registered to vote.”
“Climate” means global socialism in the name of saving the environment, and “gun safety” means ripping up the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms.
This is unpopular—only 17 percent of Americans support giving 16-year-olds the right to cast a ballot in national elections…even two-thirds of teenagers are against it!
But then, the Democrats never cared about what you wanted, if it stands in their way.
