‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

New York Moves to Allow 800,000 Noncitizens to Vote in Local Elections;…

REMEMBER WHEN;…CITIZENSHIP WAS AN HONOR, TO STRIVE FOR,….VOTING WAS AN EMBRACED RIGHT-OF-PARTICIPATION IN A GOVERNMENT OF, FOR, & BY THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA,…..NOT SOMETHING TO BE HANDED-OUT AS PART OF A “WELCOME PACKAGE” FOR PEOPLE ABANDONING THEIR OWN COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS!!
 
…AS A NATIVE BORN NEW YORKER , AND FORMER (S.I.) COMMUNITY BOARD MEMBER OF THIS CITY, I AM DISGUSTED AND ASHAMED AT THIS CASUAL PERFORMANCE OF GRANTING “VOTING RIGHTS” TO FOREIGNERS, MERELY BECAUSE THEY ARE HERE IN AMERICA…..**OPINION;…THIS PLOY CLEARLY IS A FORM OF “HARVESTING VOTES” FOR THE MODERN-DAY “VOTE-GROWING FARMERS” DOMINATING THE NYC COUNCIL.
 
***WHY ARE THE MANY COMMUNITY BOARDS THROUGHOUT THESE 5 BOROUGHS REMAINING SILENT?? I KNOW THAT IF YOU POLLED THE PEOPLE THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT, YOU WOULD FIND AN OVERWHELMING DISSATISFACTION AND REJECTION FOR SUCH AN IRRESPONSIBLE MOVE!!… THESE NEW YORK’S CITIZENS, WHO’S ANCESTORS CAME HERE AND EARNED THE RIGHT TO BECOME CITIZENS AND WITH GREAT EMOTION AND HONOR APPRECIATED THAT RIGHT-TO-VOTE……WHY ARE YOU NOT BRINGING THEIR VOICE TO THE TABLE???
 
…NOW THIS CITY WANTS TO HAND-OUT “VOTING-RIGHTS” AS IF THEY WERE PIECES-OF-CANDY” AT A HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT EVENT….THIS IS TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE, AND SELF-SERVING FOR THESE DEMO-CULTS, AND WILL CAUSE IRREPARABLE HARM TO THE STABILITY OF NEW YORK STATES CONSTITUTION.ARTICLE II SUFFRAGE [Qualifications of voters] Section 1. Every citizen shall be entitled to vote at every election for all officers elected by the people and upon all questions submitted to the vote of the people provided that such citizen is eighteen years of age or over and shall have been a resident of this state, and of the county, city, or village for thirty days next preceding an election;
**THE CHOSEN WORDS ARE EVERY CITIZEN,….THEREFORE, YOU CANNOT VOTE IF YOU ARE NOT A CITIZEN. ***TO CREATE AN ORDINANCE THAT IS ADVERSE, CONTRADICTORY, AND IN VIOLATION OF THE STATES CONSTITUTION (IN BOTH SPIRIT & INTENT),IS NOT A LEGISLATIVE PRACTICE, BUT A POTENTIAL ACT OF MALFEASANCE / MISFEASANCE IN CONCERT WITH ANARCHY.
…..FOR ONCE RISE-UP,….COMMUNITY BOARDS AND REPRESENT THE PEOPLE,……NOT THE POLITICIAN!!….BECOME THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE, AS (YOU HAVE ALL FORGOTTEN),THIS CITY COUNCIL OPERATES ON THE PEOPLE’S AUTHORITY,..NOT SOME DELUSIONALOLIGARCHY OF THEIR OWN CREATION!!
 
NYC- CLEARLY AN ANTI-AMERICAN CITY;…IS NOW ALSO THE CATALYST FOR THE REST OF THE NATION TO AGRESSIVELY REMOVE SOCIALISM, FROM OUR SHORES…
…REMEMBER WHEN;…CITIZENSHIP WAS AN HONOR, NOT A HAND-OUT!!FROM THOMAS PASTORE / VIETNAM VETERAN / USMC, COMPELLED TO REMAIN ON DUTY, AS OUR ENEMIES ARE KNOWN TO US ALL!!

New York City will become the largest municipality in the country to allow legal residents to vote if the legislation is approved as expected in December.
 
Nov. 23, 2021, 5:00 a.m. ET
New York City lawmakers are poised to allow more than 800,000 New Yorkers who are green card holders or have the legal right to work in the United States to vote in municipal elections and for local ballot initiatives.
The bill, known as “Our City, Our Vote,” would make New York City the largest municipality in the country to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections.
 
The legislation, expected to be approved by the City Council on Dec. 9 by a veto-proof margin, comes as the country is dealing with a swath of new laws to impose voter restrictions, as well as the economic and demographic effects of a decline in immigration.
 
“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” said Ydanis Rodriguez, a councilman who sponsored the bill and represents Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan.
 
The legislation, first introduced almost two years ago, is the culmination of more than a decade of work to gain local voting rights for some legal permanent residents. It also extends the right to those with work authorization, such as the so-called dreamers, recipients of a program known as DACA that shields young immigrants brought into the country illegally from deportation and allows them to live and work here.
 
It was once more common for noncitizens to have voting rights in the United States, but the provisions were repealed around the turn of the 20th century as more immigrants arrived and popular sentiment changed.
Until school boards were disbanded nearly two decades ago, New York City was among the places that allowed noncitizens to vote in school board elections, a right that exists in San Francisco. Several towns in Maryland and Vermont also grant noncitizens some municipal voting rights.
 
Of the estimated 808,000 adult New Yorkers who are lawful permanent residents, or green card holders, or have work authorization, about 130,000 are from the Dominican Republic; those from China represent another 117,500 people, according to the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs. Those eligible must be residents of New York City for 30 days and otherwise eligible to vote under state law.
In spite of having a veto-proof majority of 34 out of 51 City Council members and the public advocate co-sponsoring the bill, the legislation has not moved forward until now partly because of concerns about its legality. Mayor Bill de Blasio has contended that the change “has to be decided at state level, according to state law,” during a recent appearance on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer show.
The mayor also said he has “mixed feelings” about the bill because he feared that allowing noncitizens to vote might remove the incentive for people to become full citizens.
But the Council’s legal staff, as well as voting rights experts, say that the bill is legal, and that no federal or state law bars New York City from expanding the right to vote in local elections.
“Any restrictions that are currently on the books really only apply to federal and state elections,” said Anu Joshi, the vice president of policy at the New York Immigration Coalition, an umbrella organization that represents hundreds of community-based immigrant and refugee groups.
Joshua A. Douglas, a professor at the University of Kentucky J. David Rosenberg College of Law who studies voting rights and election law, concurred, saying that nothing in the New York State Constitution expressly prevents noncitizens from voting. The state explicitly confers voting rights to citizens but does not deny those rights to noncitizens.
Eric Adams, the mayor-elect, has said he supports the legislation and believes that green card holders should have the right to participate in local elections.
If the legislation passes as expected, the New York City Board of Elections would issue a separate voter registration form for green card holders and other noncitizens who have the right to work. At the polls, those voters would fill out a ballot that only has New York City offices on it. The legislation calls for training poll workers and community education campaigns to ensure every voter receives the correct ballot.
VOTERS IN ALABAMA, COLORADO AND FLORIDA PASSED BALLOT MEASURES LAST YEAR SPECIFYING THAT ONLY U.S. CITIZENS COULD VOTE. THE STATES JOINED ARIZONA AND NORTH DAKOTA IN SPECIFYING THAT NONCITIZENS COULD NOT VOTE IN STATE AND LOCAL ELECTIONS.
Take action and share this!
