A post seen today, August 7, 2019 on Facebook. It is to good not to share

From Milo Townsend:

I think when people finally reach the point of not just saying, but acting on the declaration that “I will not acknowledge this political system if this system isn’t going to adhere to the rule of law,” instead of “I won’t vote for so-and-so if so-and-so does or doesn’t do X” — then we will have finally reached a turning point in this discussion. But if you call yourself a constitutionalist or a patriot, and yet you continue to participate in, invest yourself in, give legitimacy and support to a system that you know, or should know by now, systemically and invariably tramples your (and everyone else’s) rights, thumbs its nose at due process, and scorns the rule of law and any semblance of genuine justice, then as Cliff said, you’re getting what you deserve no matter who you vote for, or who gets elected. I’m going to say this very bluntly: if I just described you, then you are still part of the problem, not the solution. Hate me if you want to, get pissed off at me, unfriend me, block me, whatever. Sometimes people need to hear it straight, and by God, that’s as straight as the truth gets.

There is not, and never will be any president that either can, or would if he could, fix these problems that plague this nationalized American political system. Not Trump, not Obama, not Ron Paul; not even if we could all agree on an ideal leader and make him or her Emperor for a week, or a year, would that person have the capability of righting the wrongs of this system. The power to CHOOSE to recognize only lawful government, and to eschew all imitations and pretenders thereto, can only ever be up to each of us and within our own exclusive discretion. If you want to fix what ails America, there is one possible avenue, and one alone: for YOU – each of you, as individual, autonomous human beings – to STOP CHOOSING TO OBEY unconstitutional and unlawful acts of illegitimate government as if they were law. They are not law, and they do not have a rightful claim to your obedience. Assert your rights, peaceably as long as you can, but assert them nonetheless, and refuse to be subdued by the usurpers. Be smarter than your adversary, use the mind God gave you, and the aid of those around you, which Providence has sent you as allies in your struggle, and know that the truth of history is actually on your side, should you choose to stop giving your life to the machinations of evil men.

As for standing together: certainly, stand together! But if you want a totem to rally around, don’t choose something as uncertain and changing as the personality of another human being! Whatever his promises, whatever your hopes for his actions, he will disappoint you all, eventually, and as he does so, this very strife and angst and division is precisely the result you will experience. Rally instead around a reliable and steadfast totem, a nexus of concepts which express the objectives and values that you genuinely do share, and which define the very commonality of the struggle in which you are all engaged! Let Truth and Integrity and Law be your common totem. Tether your common bond around the ethical imperatives of honorable men, the indubitable truths of our history, and the eternal ideals of justice and liberty and the rule of law, for those are, after all, the ends for which we allegedly institute governments among men, are they not!? And though every man will surely fail to live up to the ideal, those imperatives and truths and concepts are fixed and unchanging, inherent in the fabric of our universe and beyond the reach of paltry humans to corrupt. They persist eternally, even though we can never perfectly realize them in this world, and they inspire us as much today as they did 250 years ago to strive for a better world, a better life, a better society, and ultimately to better ourselves. Rally around THOSE ideals, and they won’t – can’t disappoint you, and you can stand together on that common ground despite whatever vagaries of fate befall you, or however shallow and fickle and corruptible particular men may prove to be.

But don’t put your faith in one, or even a number of other human beings as if they will be your saviors, your “last chance,” or “best hope.” And especially not anyone in a position of power in this de facto system! Because every one of them – without exception, whoever they are – in order to have gotten where they are, they had first and foremost to acquiesce in the treason and play their part among the usurpers of lawful government. If they have power, they are members of that den of thieves, not its adversary. And Trump is no exception. His allegiance is to the treason against the founders’ Constitution; he is a dyed-in-the-wool nationalist and wears that traitorous status with a fool’s zealous pride. And as long as we accept a spurious nationalized legal status, so, too, is that where the law determines that our allegiance rests.

But that choice is within our power to alter, and the law, in fact, demands that we do alter it. It seems upside-down, I realize, but the truth is, you have to forget almost everything you think you know, because what has been taught to you as legitimate all your life, is a fraud, and what has been taught to you as treason, is actually genuine patriotism. If you can find the courage to un-learn the lies and let the truth take their place, that truth really will set you free. Stop being a pawn in the game of traitors, and when the traitors don’t have a constituency anymore, then they no longer have any power.

Whether this made you mad, or curious, ask questions. Look deeper. Or don’t. The keys to freedom are literally in your hands. What you do with them is no one’s choice but your own, and God gave you free will to make poor decisions as well as wise ones. Again, we will get the government we deserve, no matter what that happens to be.

“America, we have a problem.

There is someone who needs to be impeached, fired, and removed from office.

There is a very particular leader in our country that is refusing to do the job that she was elected by the American people to do.

Not only is she refusing to do her job, her policies are dangerous for LEO’s and treasonous to America. We can no longer sit idly by and be abused by this woman and her selfish ideas of how she thinks America should be.”

This is severely disturbing.  Faulkner County, Arkansas, Sheriff Tim Ryals is now facing massive backlash thanks to a camera phone and social media.

A Faulkner sheriff deputy named Keenan Wallace was caught on camera shooting a small dog while investigating a neighborhood call reporting an aggressive dog.  Initially the County Sheriff was slow to respond to the outcry; then the video went viral on social media. [Warning, this is disturbing]:

I am SICK & TIRED of this Nonsense — It is time to round up these ‘Sanctuary City’ & Illegal Immigration enablers, and ENFORCE the law!

Officer Singh died as a direct result of the unlawful actions of many elected officials, such as:
Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, California Governor Jerry Brown, Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Sheila Jackson-Lee, NC’s David Price & GK Butterfield, Durham’s Mayor Schewell & Council members Jillian Johnson & Charlie Reece, and Wake & Durham County’s newly elected sheriffs. This is only a small list, but it’s a START.

The above listed individuals have ALL violated;
Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv), and,
Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v)

 

The Story

 

“By Laura Anthony and The Associated Press

Thursday, December 27, 2018 10:02PM

NEWMAN, Calif. — Ronil Singh came to the U.S. from his native Fiji to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming an officer, joining a small-town police force in California and working to improve his English. The day after Christmas, he stopped another immigrant, this one in the country illegally, who shot and killed the corporal, authorities said Thursday. “

 

The Law

Encouraging / Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

 

Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

 

Penalties — The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years.

 

The law is already written. It is already on the books. It is way PAST TIME to enforce it.

Tyranny — by Definition

tyrannytj

 

 

Definition of tyranny (Merriam Webster Dictionary)

    1 :  oppressive power <every form of tyranny over the mind of man — Thomas Jefferson>; especially :  oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police state>

 

Please help if you can. Share this info. A financial contribution will help too. $5 – $10 – whatever you can afford. It is amazing how a bunch of folks, with small contributions, can help restore the rule of law.

Does the U.S. Constitution define certain ‘RIGHTS’ held by all citizens of these United States?

              

Does our N.C. State Constitution confirm some these rights?

                      

                                   

The “REAL” answer to the above two questions is actually NO!

                 

                                   

At least that is how it is applied in the Durham County Court system here in North Carolina.

                          

                       

Former assistant district attorney, recently elected local district judge, completely discards her oath to uphold the Constitutions and places the boot of ‘TYRANNY’ on a local veteran.

 

What was his crime? He asked some questions! OMG, The HORROR!

This text is copied from CNN’s website. At the time of this posting, this particular Executive Order is NOT published on the White House’s Official Page. I do not know why it isn’t posted.

PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES

 

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and to protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans. And while the visa-issuance process was reviewed and amended after the September 11 attacks to better detect would-be terrorists from receiving visas, these measures did not stop attacks by foreign nationals who were admitted to the United States.

Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001, including foreign nationals who entered the United States after receiving visitor, student, or employment visas, or who entered through the United States refugee resettlement program. Deteriorating conditions in certain countries due to war, strife, disaster, and civil unrest increase the likelihood that terrorists will use any means possible to enter the United States. The United States must be vigilant during the visa-issuance process to ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism.

In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.

Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from foreign nationals who intend to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; and to prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes.

Sec. 3. Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits to Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall immediately conduct a review to determine the information needed from any country to adjudicate any visa, admission, or other benefit under the INA (adjudications) in order to determine that the individual seeking the benefit is who the individual claims to be and is not a security or public-safety threat.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall submit to the President a report on the results of the review described in subsection (a) of this section, including the Secretary of Homeland Security’s determination of the information needed for adjudications and a list of countries that do not provide adequate information, within 30 days of the date of this order. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall provide a copy of the report to the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence.
(c) To temporarily reduce investigative burdens on relevant agencies during the review period described in subsection (a) of this section, to ensure the proper review and maximum utilization of available resources for the screening of foreign nationals, and to ensure that adequate standards are established to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists or criminals, pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order (excluding those foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas).

(d) Immediately upon receipt of the report described in subsection (b) of this section regarding the information needed for adjudications, the Secretary of State shall request all foreign governments that do not supply such information to start providing such information regarding their nationals within 60 days of notification.

(e) After the 60-day period described in subsection (d) of this section expires, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, shall submit to the President a list of countries recommended for inclusion on a Presidential proclamation that would prohibit the entry of foreign nationals (excluding those foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas) from countries that do not provide the information requested pursuant to subsection (d) of this section until compliance occurs.

(f) At any point after submitting the list described in subsection (e) of this section, the Secretary of State or the Secretary of Homeland Security may submit to the President the names of any additional countries recommended for similar treatment.

(g) Notwithstanding a suspension pursuant to subsection (c) of this section or pursuant to a Presidential proclamation described in subsection (e) of this section, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may, on a case-by-case basis, and when in the national interest, issue visas or other immigration benefits to nationals of countries for which visas and benefits are otherwise blocked.

(h) The Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall submit to the President a joint report on the progress in implementing this order within 30 days of the date of this order, a second report within 60 days of the date of this order, a third report within 90 days of the date of this order, and a fourth report within 120 days of the date of this order.

Sec. 4. Implementing Uniform Screening Standards for All Immigration Programs. (a) The Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation shall implement a program, as part of the adjudication process for immigration benefits, to identify individuals seeking to enter the United States on a fraudulent basis with the intent to cause harm, or who are at risk of causing harm subsequent to their admission. This program will include the development of a uniform screening standard and procedure, such as in-person interviews; a database of identity documents proffered by applicants to ensure that duplicate documents are not used by multiple applicants; amended application forms that include questions aimed at identifying fraudulent answers and malicious intent; a mechanism to ensure that the applicant is who the applicant claims to be; a process to evaluate the applicant’s likelihood of becoming a positively contributing member of society and the applicant’s ability to make contributions to the national interest; and a mechanism to assess whether or not the applicant has the intent to commit criminal or terrorist acts after entering the United States.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the Secretary of State, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, shall submit to the President an initial report on the progress of this directive within 60 days of the date of this order, a second report within 100 days of the date of this order, and a third report within 200 days of the date of this order.

Sec. 5. Realignment of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for Fiscal Year 2017. (a) The Secretary of State shall suspend the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days. During the 120-day period, the Secretary of State, in conjunction with the Secretary of Homeland Security and in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, shall review the USRAP application and adjudication process to determine what additional procedures should be taken to ensure that those approved for refugee admission do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States, and shall implement such additional procedures. Refugee applicants who are already in the USRAP process may be admitted upon the initiation and completion of these revised procedures. Upon the date that is 120 days after the date of this order, the Secretary of State shall resume USRAP admissions only for nationals of countries for which the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Director of National Intelligence have jointly determined that such additional procedures are adequate to ensure the security and welfare of the United States.

(b) Upon the resumption of USRAP admissions, the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, is further directed to make changes, to the extent permitted by law, to prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality. Where necessary and appropriate, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall recommend legislation to the President that would assist with such prioritization.

(c) Pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the USRAP to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest.

(d) Pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest.

(e) Notwithstanding the temporary suspension imposed pursuant to subsection (a) of this section, the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may jointly determine to admit individuals to the United States as refugees on a case-by-case basis, in their discretion, but only so long as they determine that the admission of such individuals as refugees is in the national interest — including when the person is a religious minority in his country of nationality facing religious persecution, when admitting the person would enable the United States to conform its conduct to a preexisting international agreement, or when the person is already in transit and denying admission would cause undue hardship — and it would not pose a risk to the security or welfare of the United States.

(f) The Secretary of State shall submit to the President an initial report on the progress of the directive in subsection (b) of this section regarding prioritization of claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution within 100 days of the date of this order and shall submit a second report within 200 days of the date of this order.

(g) It is the policy of the executive branch that, to the extent permitted by law and as practicable, State and local jurisdictions be granted a role in the process of determining the placement or settlement in their jurisdictions of aliens eligible to be admitted to the United States as refugees. To that end, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall examine existing law to determine the extent to which, consistent with applicable law, State and local jurisdictions may have greater involvement in the process of determining the placement or resettlement of refugees in their jurisdictions, and shall devise a proposal to lawfully promote such involvement.

Sec. 6. Rescission of Exercise of Authority Relating to the Terrorism Grounds of Inadmissibility. The Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall, in consultation with the Attorney General, consider rescinding the exercises of authority in section 212 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182, relating to the terrorism grounds of inadmissibility, as well as any related implementing memoranda.

Sec. 7. Expedited Completion of the Biometric Entry-Exit Tracking System. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall expedite the completion and implementation of a biometric entry-exit tracking system for all travelers to the United States, as recommended by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit to the President periodic reports on the progress of the directive contained in subsection (a) of this section. The initial report shall be submitted within 100 days of the date of this order, a second report shall be submitted within 200 days of the date of this order, and a third report shall be submitted within 365 days of the date of this order. Further, the Secretary shall submit a report every 180 days thereafter until the system is fully deployed and operational.

Sec. 8. Visa Interview Security. (a) The Secretary of State shall immediately suspend the Visa Interview Waiver Program and ensure compliance with section 222 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1222, which requires that all individuals seeking a nonimmigrant visa undergo an in-person interview, subject to specific statutory exceptions.

(b) To the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, the Secretary of State shall immediately expand the Consular Fellows Program, including by substantially increasing the number of Fellows, lengthening or making permanent the period of service, and making language training at the Foreign Service Institute available to Fellows for assignment to posts outside of their area of core linguistic ability, to ensure that non-immigrant visa-interview wait times are not unduly affected.

Sec. 9. Visa Validity Reciprocity. The Secretary of State shall review all nonimmigrant visa reciprocity agreements to ensure that they are, with respect to each visa classification, truly reciprocal insofar as practicable with respect to validity period and fees, as required by sections 221(c) and 281 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(c) and 1351, and other treatment. If a country does not treat United States nationals seeking nonimmigrant visas in a reciprocal manner, the Secretary of State shall adjust the visa validity period, fee schedule, or other treatment to match the treatment of United States nationals by the foreign country, to the extent practicable.

Sec. 10. Transparency and Data Collection. (a) To be more transparent with the American people, and to more effectively implement policies and practices that serve the national interest, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, shall, consistent with applicable law and national security, collect and make publicly available within 180 days, and every 180 days thereafter:

(i) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been charged with terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; convicted of terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; or removed from the United States based on terrorism-related activity, affiliation, or material support to a terrorism-related organization, or any other national security reasons since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later;

(ii) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been radicalized after entry into the United States and engaged in terrorism-related acts, or who have provided material support to terrorism-related organizations in countries that pose a threat to the United States, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iii) information regarding the number and types of acts of gender-based violence against women, including honor killings, in the United States by foreign nationals, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iv) any other information relevant to public safety and security as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Attorney General, including information on the immigration status of foreign nationals charged with major offenses.

(b) The Secretary of State shall, within one year of the date of this order, provide a report on the estimated long-term costs of the USRAP at the Federal, State, and local levels.

Sec. 11. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
DONALD J. TRUMP

THE WHITE HOUSE, January 27, 2017

Respectfully submitted by SilenceDogood2010 this Thirtieth Day of January in the Year of our Lord, Two Thousand and Seventeen.

Godspeed President Trump


voting_machine__scary

Open letter to elections boards throughout N.C.

     

Members of the NC State Board of Elections & County Election Boards

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I feel urged to remind you – before you hold your meeting / hearing today – that each of you has taken an SWORN OATH to support & defend the NC Constitution. Your duty today, is to uphold that oath.

To uphold that said oath, you MUST do the following;

1) Instruct each county board to go back through ALL of their ballots and remove each one that was cast using Same Day Register & Vote (1st time registrants), and/or those received on or about October 15th, and any other ballots that were cast by individuals who have not passed the COMPLETE VERIFICATION PROCESS as defined by NCGS 163-82.7.

2) These newly registered voters must also be thoroughly vetted concerning the ONE YEAR RESIDENCY requirement set forth via Art.VI, Sec. 2. of our Constitution (see cited clause below)

I realize this will be a difficult task, but it MUST BE DONE FORTHWITH. This task must especially be done in ALL COUNTIES that contain a University due to the high number of transient, ‘Out of State Students’. If a student only resides in NC during the normal school year, they must not be allowed to cast a ballot for our Council of State races, nor any local bond issues, nor other local candidates. They are however, allowed to cast ballots for ONLY President & Vice President as per Article VI, Section 2, Clause 2 cited below.

Now, some of the legal scholars, and elections employees will argue that this portion of our constitution concerning the ‘Durational Residency Laws’ was struck down by the supreme Court in 1972. Dunn vs. Blumstein, Tennessee. I’ll urge you to do your homework on this one. That argument is invalid because;

1) Our current constitution was completely re-written after the passage of the 1965 VRA, and;

2) Tennessee, nor any other state, had these newly conceived ‘Same Day Register & Vote’ laws on their books, and;

3) The 1972 SCOTUS opinion (Dunn vs Blumstein) does not take into consideration ‘Out of State’, transient individuals such as our university students, nor does it address issues that came with the U.S. Constitution’s 27th Amendment (Voting age reduced to 18) which was ratified in 1971. This case was heard less than 5 months after ratification of the 27th .

THE OPINION

Dunn vs. Blumstein (SCOTUS, 1972)
III

Concluding that Tennessee has not offered an adequate justification for its durational residence laws, we affirm the judgment of the court below.

    Affirmed.

                                        

North Carolina Constitution 

ARTICLE VI – SUFFRAGE AND ELIGIBILITY TO OFFICE

Sec. 2.  Qualifications of voter.

(1)        Residence period for State elections.  Any person who has resided in the State of North Carolina for one year and in the precinct, ward, or other election district for 30 days next preceding an election, and possesses the other qualifications set out in this Article, shall be entitled to vote at any election held in this State.  Removal from one precinct, ward, or other election district to another in this State shall not operate to deprive any person of the right to vote in the precinct, ward, or other election district from which that person has removed until 30 days after the removal.

(2)        Residence period for presidential elections.  The General Assembly may reduce the time of residence for persons voting in presidential elections.  A person made eligible by reason of a reduction in time of residence shall possess the other qualifications set out in this Article, shall only be entitled to vote for President and Vice President of the United States or for electors for President and Vice President, and shall not thereby become eligible to hold office in this State.
