Supreme Court decision halts Georgia voting rights lawsuit

WASHINGTON 

A federal lawsuit challenging Georgia’s system of removing inactive voters from the registration rolls was formally withdrawn on Tuesday after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Ohio’s similar voter “purge” policy did not violate federal law.

In a 5-4 decision, the high court held that Ohio is not violating the National Voter Registration Act by sending address-confirmation notices to registered voters when they fail to vote in a federal election — and then eliminating their names from the rolls if they don’t respond and fail to vote in the next two federal elections over a four-year period.

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Although my personal political philosophy is libertarian, like most people, over the years I have surrendered to the binary choice our two-party system gives us when casting my vote in presidential elections. I almost always find myself settling for a “lesser of two evils,” but the “evil” is not so great as to prevent me from rationalizing what amounts to, by my vote, an endorsement or affirmation of the candidate.  Because at least rhetorically, the Republican party candidate promises a greater commitment to limited, constitutional government, entitlement reform, tackling the national debt, and a belief in the benefits of free trade, I have voted for the Republican candidate for president ever since Ronald Reagan. The Republicans repeatedly disappoint on matters of foreign policy, seeing the US as world policeman. But the Democrats fare little better on foreign policy—sometimes even worse. So foreign policy as a vote-determining factor between the two major parties tended to be a wash for me. I often profoundly disagree with the Republicans on many of the “culture war” and so-called social issues, but I have had confidence that our Constitution and judiciary will defend against any overreach by Republicans in that area.  read

Chaos in House after GOP votes down LGBT measure

Chaos in House after GOP votes down LGBT measure

he House floor devolved into chaos and shouting on Thursday as a measure to ensure protections for members of the LGBT community narrowly failed to pass, after Republican leaders urged their members to change their votes.   Initially, it appeared Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s (D-N.Y.) amendment had passed, as 217 “yes” votes piled up over 206 “no” votes when the clock ran out. The measure needed 213 votes to pass.  But it eventually failed, 212-213, after a number of Republican lawmakers changed their votes from “yes” to “no” after the clock had expired.  read

The Day After – What Happened and Where Do We Go From Here?

Trump fans are jumping for joy and Cruz supporters are angry and in a state of shock. After reviewing the pulse of conservatives on Facebook and Twitter last night and this morning, it is reminiscent of the day after the last presidential election. Some were giddy, while others felt the affects of a devastating defeat. How did we get here and where will it go from here?

The ‘how’ is easier because we can look back over the past eight or nine months and find the answers. Donald Trump is an outsider who focused on the one issue that resonated with the people, ‘Take America Back’! He zeroed in on immigration, building a wall and closing the borders, bringing jobs back from overseas, he made it clear he hates Political Correctness and the status quo in DC and he plans to restore our economy. In addition, his approach was relentless, he didn’t take crap from anyone (they hit him with a stick, he came back with a sledge hammer). Basically, he fought as a ‘junk yard dog’ and that’s exactly what the people wanted. He gained a very unlikely allie in the media who gave him much more coverage than any other candidate. No, at times he hasn’t been very articulate, has grossly misspoken and occasionally been silly and trite with his responses, but he stayed with his message and as a result, his followers continued to grow in numbers.

Ted Cruz is a man of great integrity and principle and he garnered a large following and support as he took his message across the land. Although a sitting U.S. Senator, he is certainly not regarded as an establishment good ol boy by his peers. He is a Christian with deep moral convictions and made that obvious throughout his campaign. He is a learned Constitutional scholar who understands the current Constitutional crisis facing the nation and his positions made it clear he would fight to restore the legal process and stifle the ongoing assault. His position on tax reform, Common Core, returning to Constitutional law, reforming Congress and the economy were his headliners. He conducted his campaign with integrity and mostly stayed above the negative, often nasty, name calling and belittling that more recently became a significant hallmark of the campaign season. Unfortunately, the press took the position of the Washington insiders and shoved him (like numerous other candidates) to the side, minimizing his opportunity for exposure and to get his message out.

Note: The attacks on both their families were brutal and totally uncalled for.

After all was said and done, it is obvious we had two very strong thoroughbreds in the race, but there could only be one winner and the people decided on Trump. Right or wrong for this country, no one can say, but the will of the people was proclaimed clearly and loudly. Will he go on to win the presidency, who knows.

Now it’s time to lick our wounds, tighten our boot straps and get behind the GOP candidate destined to do battle with Hillary/Bernie. The skirmish ended in Indiana last night and now the final battle begins and the stakes are incalculable! If a Democrat wins, we will surely see four to eight years of an even more liberal agenda, an agenda this country can ill afford or wants! What to do? Lick our wounds, buck up and support the GOP nominee or pick up our marbles and go home and not vote in November? It’s really that simple!

(Disclaimer: I tried to provide an unbiased assessment based on my observations.)

Agree/Disagree – tell me in the comments.

Hillary: A Lifelong attitude of corruption and no honor!

Democrats and Liberals all across the country are lamenting and licking their wounds as more and more negative information surfaces (in this case, re-surfaces) regarding Hillary’s ‘I can do whatever I want attitude’ takes chunks out of her backside as her announcement to run for president draws nearer. But as with Obama, that will probably be ignored or rationalized away!

Did Obama Rig the Voting Machines?

he mainstream media tried to downplay the massive amount of voting machines problems, but there were reported problems from coast to coast.

As reported in the Wikileaks Stratfor email dump earlier this year, the Obama campaign was engaged in massive ballot stuffing in Philadelphia and Ohio, more than likely by sabotaging voting machines and then having “emergency” ballots ready to switch with backup paper ballots.

BREAKING: St. Lucie County, Florida Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County

Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the county.

When faced with the astronomical figures, Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for St. Lucie County, said she had no idea why turnout was so incredibly high. She was flabbergasted, saying, “We’ve never seen that here.”

Coincidentally (or not), St. Lucie County is also in Allen West’s district, where 6,000 votes mysteriously “shifted” from Mr. West to his challenger.

141.1%

Out of the 247,713 cards cast, somehow election machines counted 123,591 total votes.

Over 40,000 People Are Registered to Vote in Both Virginia AND Maryland

Over 40,000 People Are Registered to Vote in Both Virginia AND Maryland

V2A

As midterm elections quickly approach, many are starting to think about voting and potential fraud at the polls. And once again, we find that there is cause to be worried about voter fraud here in the U.S. It appears in a new report that 44,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.

A vote-integrity group crosschecked the voter rolls in the two states and found far too many people registered in both states. The group, known as The Virginia Voters Alliance, is going to expand their research into surrounding states like Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Georgia.

Soros Donates $1 Mil to NAACP to Promote Voter Fraud

Soros Donates $1 Mil to NAACP to Promote Voter Fraud

by Daniel Greenfield

The NAACP has been a hollow organization for a while. Its membership may or may not exist, but it’s so small that it represents a tiny fraction of African-Americans. And the membership skews old.

There’s a reason why Obama took a pass at appearing before the NAACP. It’s a dying organization being kept alive as a front for various lefty causes that have nothing to do with black people or that black people oppose, like illegal immigration and gay rights, and because its legacy is useful to provide cover on voter fraud issues.

Now the Democratic Party’s favorite anti-Semitic Nazi collaborator is helping the tottering organization continue its mission of issuing press releases.

George Soros, the billionaire financier and philanthropist, has pledged $1 million to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the country’s leading civil rights legal advocacy group, officials there said Tuesday.

The gift, which Mr. Soros is making through his Open Society Foundations, is the largest grant the group has ever received from a named donor.

It comes as the fund and other legal advocacy groups are locked in battles around the country over states’ efforts to impose tighter restrictions on voting.

SEIU Organizers Caught Committing Voter Fraud

SEIU Organizers Caught Committing Voter Fraud

by Daniel Greenfield

An investigation by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has led to a subpoena of SEIU’s Washington, D.C. headquarters and has implicated the prominent labor union in a voter fraud case that threatens to lead to criminal prosecution.

Then-SEIU Senior Organizer-in-Training Clarence S. Haynes, who is no longer affiliated with the union and whose whereabouts are currently unknown, voted in the hotly contested April 2011 election for a Wisconsin Supreme Court seat despite not being a resident of Wisconsin and leaving the state shortly after voting, according to an October 19, 2012 affidavit prepared by Bruce J. Landgraf, the assistant district attorney for Milwaukee County.

Haynes, who maintained an official permanent residence in Clearwater, Florida, allegedly voted along with two other SEIU organizers in Glendale, Wisconsin on April 5, 2011 — using a Residence Inn as their official address.

And there goes this racist country, disenfranchising unfortunate motel voters who don’t live in the state, only because they’re committing voter fraud.

FORENSIC PROFILER: OBAMA CONFESSING ELECTION FRAUD

By BOB UNRUH

A forensic profiler whose previous cases have included the Natalie Holloway disappearance and the O.J. Simpson double murder says Barack Obama is confessing to stealing the 2012 president election.

“Obama appears to unconsciously confess on multiple occasions that in his secret fury he stole the 2012 presidential election – continuing his attacks on our nation,” Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., told WND in an assessment of Obama.

“But really that is no different whatsoever than in 2008 becoming an illegal president who violated the Constitution. This knowledge comes from one undeniable fact: we have discovered a new unconscious mind that continually quick-reads situations and communicates about it – as Obama reveals.”

GOP legally barred from fighting vote fraud

GOP legally barred from fighting vote fraud

By BOB UNRUH

Voting machines suspiciously defaulting to Barack Obama? Buses loaded with strangers appearing at polling stations? Even ballots turning out 100 percent for one candidate in precinct reports?

In short, suspicions of vote fraud?

That’s too bad, because a race-based consent decree negotiated by Democrats against the Republican National Committee a generation ago still has tied the RNC’s hands, and GOP officials could be cited for contempt – or worse – if they try to make sure American elections are clean.

Impossible?

No. Fact.

MCCAIN SMASHES OBAMA BACK: YOU’RE INCOMPETENT OR CORRUPT

by WILLIAM BIGELOW

Sen. John McCain launched a fierce counterattack on Barack Obama yesterday after Obama arrogantly called McCain’s criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice “outrageous” and said critics of Rice should “go after me.”

McCain, speaking on the Senate floor, went straight for the jugular:

“This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people. I speak as a friend of Christopher Stevens, I speak as a person who knows something about warfare, I speak as something of an authority — that this attack could have been prevented if the information on the ground had been taken into consideration.”

McCain wants a congressional Select Committee to investigate what happened in Benghazi and how the Obama Administration reacted. Paraphrasing Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee during the Watergate investigation, he said bluntly:

There clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap among the American people because of the [contradictory statements about the attacks] beginning with the President of the United States. What did the president know? When did he know about it? And what did he do about it?

St. Lucie elections supervisor admits errors

By Laurie K. Blandford

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Elections Supervisor Gertrude Walker Tuesday admitted mistakes were made election night when uploading results from the last three days of early voting, blaming human and machine errors.

“I’m not perfect, neither is my staff,” Walker said during a Tuesday evening press conference.

Out of 94 precincts, the first 40 — most of them in Fort Pierce — weren’t counted at all and the last 54 — mostly in Port St. Lucie and the county — were counted twice, which explains why city votes increased and county votes decreased after the Nov. 11 retabulation of the votes from Nov. 1-3.

There were 3,635 counted twice and 1,953 not scanned at all.

The Nov. 11 retabulation corrected the error, Walker said.

“I’m confident that every vote has been counted accurately,” Walker said.

POLL WATCHER SEES ROMNEY BALLOTS CHANGED

POLL WATCHER SEES ROMNEY BALLOTS CHANGED

By BOB UNRUH

Up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station in Pennsylvania reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected, according to a poll watcher who was a witness to the proceedings.

The incident took place in the state where officials claimed Obama got a total of 19,605 votes in 59 voting divisions to zero for Mitt Romney and not far from the 100 precincts in Ohio where Obama got 99 percent of the vote, a feat not even achieved by Third-World dictators, according to Market Daily News.

Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud

Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud

Videographer James O’Keefe, known for his undercover videos exposing left wing fraud, caught a Virginia Democratic Congressman’s son on video in October explaining how to commit voter fraud. Patrick Moran, the son of Rep. Jim Moran, told O’Keefe’s videographer that in order to make a vote for someone else, you’d need two pieces of identification, such as a utility bill, explaining, “they can fake a utility bill with ease, you know?” He went on to advise the videographer that he should also call the voter and pretend to be a polling company in order to make sure the voter isn’t intending to vote. He said that Democrat attorneys would be located in the polling places to assist him if challenged casting one of these illegal votes.

TRR: Florida Vote Twist: More Ballots Than Voters

The Washington Times – November 10, 2012, 03:02PM

Republican Congressman Allen West’s campaign is ready to “go to war” to get a recount in the Florida 18th Congressional District race. The latest twist to emerge from the ongoing vote count – in some precincts there are more ballots than voters.
