ELECTORAL FRAUD: Hundreds of Non-Citizens Were Registered to Vote in Illinois During 2018 Elections


Published on By

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White has has blamed a “programming error” following the revelation that over 500 non-U.S. citizens were registered to vote in the 2018 election and may have participated in elections throughout the state.

“While this represents only 1/10 of one percent, it is still not acceptable and we apologize for the error,”White said in a statement obtained by The Hill. “On the same day the programming error was confirmed, it was fixed and won’t happen again.

“We quickly notified the Illinois State Board of Elections along with the 574 people impacted – all of whom are in the country legally,” he added.

White claimed that the errors have been fixed and the problem is no more in his letter, but election authorities and state officials are still worried about the integrity of the elections. State Republicans are calling for an immediate investigation into the problem to make sure that such a mistake does not happen again.

“Republican state lawmakers join U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis to address integrity of Illinois elections given recent news that more than 500 non-citizens registered to vote under auto-voter registration system,” a tweet from the Illinois state GOP reads.

The “Automatic Voter Registration” bill was signed into law by former Illinois governor Bruce Rauner in 2017, which automatically registers Illinois residents to vote when they receive or renew their driver’s license or ID. While this law may have been well-intentioned, it has seemingly opened the door for non-citizens to participate in elections.

“For whatever reason that technological programming error did not properly remove the individuals,”White said in his letter. “The individuals who are applying for driver’s license were inadvertently pooled into the automatic voter registration.”

The Secretary of State’s office is largely downplaying the error and claiming that further investigations are not necessary.

“We discovered an error, and we fixed it. And then we notified the State Board of Elections and the local election authorities and the individuals that were impacted,” the office said in the statement.

“Even though, in the grand scheme of our election registration numbers and the voting numbers, the figures that we’re looking at are very small,” said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board of Elections. “This issue is significant in terms of we want to make sure there is complete integrity with our automatic voter registration system.”

State Republicans are not willing to let the issue die, fearing that electoral fraud issues may impact races during this year’s important general elections in November.

“I don’t have a lot of confidence in the Secretary of State’s Office right now,” said Illinois State Representative Tim Butler from Springfield.

“He may or may not have known about this, I have no idea. But he needs to be held responsible for it; it’s his operation that allowed this to happen,” he said – demanding for a full investigation into White and his possible complicity in the fraud.

“It simply is inexcusable that non-citizens voted in Illinois and potentially affected the outcome of elections across the state. Those in the Secretary of State’s Office who allowed this to happen should be terminated from their employment with the State,” the state GOP chairman said in a statement.

This may just be the beginning of unprecedented electoral chicanery from Democrats as they grow more desperate to win in the age of President Donald Trump.

Voter Fraud in Iowa Caucus, More than 18,000 EXTRA Names on Voter Rolls

Voter fraud has been devastatingly prominent in states that are either considered swing states or that are largely Democrat. More than likely that’s why they’re swing states or Democratic states, because they cheat the system. There have been a number of states (especially California) that have thousands of extra names on voter rolls. Quite literally, there are more registered voters than there are actually eligible voters. You explain how that works. Now another state was discovered to have a surplus of registered voters, that state is Iowa.

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch uncovered eight counties in Iowa that have more registrations than they should totaling up to approximately 18,600 names. Along with that, there is one county in Iowa that has an unusually high percentage of registered voters compared to the total of eligible voters at 95.9%.

This is a serious problem that really needs to be addressed before November when the general election takes place because in my opinion, this is the only reason and the only way that Democrats win elections anymore. They have to cheat to win.

Judicial Watch announced that eight Iowa counties have more voter registrations than their eligible voting-age population. According to Judicial Watch’s analysis of data released by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in 2019 and the most recent U.S. Census Bureau’s five-year American Community Survey, eight Iowa counties are on the list of 378 counties nationwide that have more voter registrations than citizens living there who are old enough to vote, i.e., counties where registration rates exceed 100%. These 378 counties combined had about 2.5 million registrations over the 100%-registered mark. In Iowa, there are at least 18,658 “extra names” on the voting rolls in the eight counties at issue.

The chart below details the eight Iowa counties’ registration rate percentages:

Reg Rate Total Population
Dallas County 114.8 80,864
Johnson County 107.9 114,425
Lyon County 102.5 11,475
Madison County 102.5 15,720
Poweshiek County 102.1 18,428
Dickinson County 100.9 17,000
Scott County 100.8 171,493
Warren County 100.5 48,630

Voter Fraud Alert: Non-Citizens to Stay on North Carolina Voter Rolls Before 2020 Election


Posted by |

URL of the original posting site: https://steadfastandloyal.com/politics/voter-fraud-alert-non-citizens-to-stay-on-north-carolina-voter-rolls-before-2020-election/

According to the Democrats voter fraud does not exist and yet they try to advance voter fraud every chance they get. North Carolina is a classic example of this. Democratic Governor Roy Cooper vetoed a bill that would have purged the voting roll of self admitted non citizens. Illegal aliens if you will. He says he vetoed it because it would allowed harassment of legitimate voters. How stupid would you have to be to believe that statement from Cooper. Let me put it this way, if you believe him make sure you spit out your gum before walking.

From Breitbart News

J. Christian Adams of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) told Breitbart News that the vetoing of the legislation by Cooper ahead of the 2020 presidential election is setting “a dangerous precedent for North Carolina and any other state with higher numbers of legal immigrants passing through their government systems.”
“Non-citizens most often become registered to vote by mistake when they fill out an application for a service, like a driver’s license,” Adams continued. “Instead of adopting a simple procedure to catch those errors, Gov. Cooper bowed to the radical left’s desire to keep non-citizen voter participation an unspeakable matter. Legitimate votes in North Carolina will continue to be canceled and otherwise good people will risk deportation because of his veto. This is truly a backward decision from the governor.”
In June, PILF filed a lawsuit against the North Carolina State Board of Elections for failing to make public the number of non-citizens who are on state voter rolls. Last year, a PILF study revealed that non-citizens on voter rolls in sanctuary cities like San Diego County, California were vastly more likely to register as Democrats rather than Republicans.

Election Judge Sees Fraud 7 Ft Away. Reports It. Dems Demand She Be Removed: Report


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 12, 2018 at 3:38am

While “all eyes” are on Florida amidst accusations of potential election fraud, there may have been something fishy going on in St. Clair County, Illinois. According to The Gateway Pundit, this would not be the first time something like this has happened, either.

Peggy A. Hubbard posted a multi-tweet thread explaining what happened in the 2018 midterm elections, noting that she was an election judge. She began describing some of what she witnessed as she watched the polling station.

But that wasn’t all she saw.

Not only is it shocking that anyone would allow this, but it’s also shocking that someone would get in such a state before then going to vote.

Hubbard noted that she also caught a city council member just feet away doing no good. But it was Hubbard taking flack.

She also elaborated further on how she put a stop to what she witnessed. It appears that these actions may have led to the complaints filed against her and her removal as an election judge being sought.

Hubbard has also posted about other problems with the election in her state. These are from 2016.

Hubbard is no stranger to standing up for what she believes in or in being attacked for it. In 2015, she “compared the black community’s reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson,” according to The Gateway Pundit.

Her video rant went viral. And the typical name-calling ensued, including her being referred to as an “Uncle Tom.”

Service isn’t new to Hubbard, either. She is a veteran who served aboard the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS AD-37.

Hubbard’s Twitter feed is filled with hard-hitting posts about the left and Democrat shenanigans. She has no problem speaking out against the Democrat Plantation” and “Black Lives Matter,” contrary to what blacks in America are expected to do.

Rigged for Democrats? Voters Purged from Rolls Will Get Ballots Counted Anyway


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 1, 2018 at 2:21pm

One of the wonderful things about the United States is the right to vote. Because people move and die, voter rolls need to be purged from time to time to help keep things honest and accurate. In some places, to help with this, voters who haven’t been to the polls in a number of years will be purged from the voter rolls. But a federal court ruling just made that more difficult.

According to The Associated Press, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court on Wednesday ordered election officials in the crucial swing state of Ohio to accept provisional ballots from those purged from the voting rolls between 2011 and 2015 if they show up to cast a ballot for this year’s midterms — either as part of early voting or on Election Day itself.

The voters were purged only after failing to vote for six years, and failing to respond to a notice informing them they would be taken off the rolls for inactivity if they didn’t answer.

However, the AP reported, the appeals court agreed with advocacy groups challenging the purge on the grounds that the letters informing voters about it “were too vague on letting recipients know the consequences of not responding.”

According to the Washington Examiner, “the ruling will allow provisional ballots submitted by voters purged from the rolls between 2011 and 2015 to be taken into account in the state’s early voting — as long as they still live in the same county of their last registration and have not been disqualified from voting due to felony conviction, mental incapacity, or death.”

It’s nice to know death is still a disqualifier from voting. Still, the ruling means that, despite the fact they had made no effort to respond to the letter or vote in six years, voters who were purged from the rolls now can vote anyway. Rules don’t matter. It might not come as a surprise to know that, according to the Washington Examiner, the groups challenging the purge included liberal outfits like the Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and the progressive “public policy organization” Demos.

With that kind of context, it’s not hard to guess which party is likely to benefit the most from low-information, low-engagement voters suddenly deciding to take an interest in the political life of their country. The ruling is a win for Democrats.

In essence, the liberals’ appeal was pushing the narrative that voters who were purged lacked the intelligence to understand the letters that were sent out or to inquire about them. This is the same kind of argument liberals have pushed about voter ID laws: That some groups are too low-I.Q. to know how to do what everyone else does, which is to get identification to function in modern American society.

So what is the big deal if purged voters can now vote? Tom Fitton, president of legal watchdog group Judicial Watch weighed in on the other aspect of the Ohio process that the 6th Circuit’s ruling did approve of — the basic principle that voter rolls need to be purged for accuracy.

His statement answers that question.

“Great news: another federal court turned aside a leftist attempt to dirty up the voting rolls and undermine clean elections,” Fitton stated. “Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.

“We will keep pushing in the courts to make sure other states take reasonable steps to make sure the names of dead people and people who have moved away are removed from election rolls. After comparing national census data to voter roll information, Judicial Watch estimates that there are 3.5 million more names on state voter rolls than there are citizens of voting age.”

Even though the court ruled that the purge itself was not the problem, you’d never know that based on a statement from the Demos, which claimed Ohio voters who were purged from the rolls had been “unlawfully disenfranchised.”

So if voting in prior elections, a rule that has been upheld as constitutional, suddenly doesn’t matter, and if failing to respond to a notice that states you may be removed from the voting rolls if you don’t vote or respond also doesn’t matter, what exactly is the criterion for voters in the mind of Democrats? Breathing? Apparently, following the rules everyone else can follow isn’t a requirement.

The elephant in the room, of course, is that the left fighting this hard to get around the rules may indicate a belief on their part that the voters who were purged would vote Democrat. By getting those ballots accepted regardless of the rules, this ruling opens the door for the kind of dirty election the voter purge rules were meant to prevent.

Democrat Party Bosses And ‘Sweet Immigrants’ BUSTED For Organized TX Voter Fraud


Reported By Jim Kouri | 

ClashDaily Guest Contributor

“The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 28.2 percent of Hispanic voters in the 2008 election were immigrants,” according to Steven Camarota of Center for Immigration Studies.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Friday officially reported that four suspects were indicted on numerous felony counts of voter fraud. The suspects were arrested during the ongoing investigation by the Election Fraud Unit of Paxton’s office. However, Democrats are not celebrating such arrests calling the case an example of overzealous police work.

Paxton has been charging a record number of people with committing voter fraud, an effort his critics condemn as a law enforcement campaign to discourage minority voters from casting ballots. “The truth is that the attorney general’s office is only trying to discourage non-citizens from voting,” said former prosecuting attorney Charles Simpson.

These four latest defendants – all members of an organized voter fraud ring – were paid to target elderly voters in certain Fort Worth precincts in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots, and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates during the 2016 elections.

“Ballots by mail are intended to make it easier for Texas seniors to vote. The unfortunate downside is their extreme vulnerability to fraud,” Attorney General Paxton said in a statement. “My office is committed to ensuring that paid vote harvesters who fraudulently generate mail ballots, stealing votes from seniors, are held accountable for their despicable actions and for the damage they inflict on the electoral process,” said Paxton, a long-time Republican.

The state’s newly filed notice of intent to introduce evidence in the criminal case alleged that Stuart Clegg, then Tarrant County Democratic Party executive director, funded the alleged voter fraud ring’s criminal activities.

The Star-Telegram added that “after learning about a state investigation, Leticia Sanchez — one of four women arrested and indicted on voter fraud charges — allegedly directed her daughter to send a text message to others in the scheme, urging them not to cooperate with investigators, state officials say.”

According to the Texas Attorney General’s communications officials, Leticia Sanchez was indicted on one count of illegal voting, a second-degree felony punishable by a prison term of two to 20 years, if convicted. All defendants in the case face state jail felony charges of providing false information on an application for a mail ballot – Sanchez (16 counts), Leticia Sanchez Tepichin (10 counts), Maria Solis (two counts) and Laura Parra (one count).

During a press briefing, the Attorney General described how the suspects operated: 

Vote harvesting is accomplished generally in two phases: seeding and harvesting.  In the seeding phase, applications for mail ballot are proliferated in order to blanket targeted precincts with mail ballots.  Then, when ballots are mailed out by the election offices, harvesters attempt either to intercept the ballots outright, or to “assist” elderly voters in voting their ballots while ensuring that the votes are cast for the candidates of the harvesters’ choice. In most cases, the voters do not even know their votes have been stolen.

The investigation into the Fort Worth voter fraud ring by the attorney general’s prosecutors and detectives revealed that falsified applications were generated using forged signatures and by altering historical applications and resubmitting them without the knowledge of the genuine voters.

The ‘harvesters’ also used deceptive tactics in order to obtain signatures from unsuspecting voters. Many of the victimized voters were forced to cancel their mail-in ballots in order to be eligible to vote in person. Some of the unsuspecting victims were forced into receiving primary ballots for the political party supported by the harvesters, though it was not the Democratic Party candidates the voters wished to vote for.

From 2005-2017, the attorney general’s office prosecuted 97 defendants for numerous voter fraud violations. This year alone, Attorney General Paxton’s Election Fraud Unit – with assistance from a criminal justice grant from the governor’s office – has prosecuted 33 defendants for a total of 97 election fraud violations, according to a news release.

In February 2018, the attorney general revealed his plan for a significant voter fraud initiative and he addressed key problems and policy areas related to election law.

Voter Fraud: Massive Illegal Voting Ahead


Posted by Phil Bailey |

URL of the original posting site: https://www.electionforum.org/events-2/voter-fraud-massive-illegal-voting-ahead/

Four women were recently indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud and arrested after an investigation by the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. The defendants were members of an organized voter fraud ring and were paid in a scheme to generate large numbers of mail ballots in the 2016 election by targeting elderly voters in certain Fort Worth districts.

How did they do it? They falsified the voters’ signatures on mail-in ballot applications … then either intercepted the ballots when they were mailed out … or “assisted” the elderly voters in filling out their ballots.

Another Texas suspect was arrested and convicted of similar “ballot harvesting” in West Dallas for a 2017 city election…

Mail-in ballot theft is just one example of the many different types of widespread voter fraud taking place … in local as well as in national elections. And it’s only going to get worse – much worse – until a national photo ID program is implemented.

Here’s how voter fraud is going to skyrocket…Los Angeles County is planning to implement the little-known California Voter’s Choice Act – Senate Bill 450 – for the 2020 election.

This bill includes the following scary provisions for California’s 58 counties:

  • An official ballot will be mailed to every registered voter (remember: you don’t have to be a U.S. citizen to register to vote in California).

  • Local polling places will be replaced with “vote centers.”

  • The paper sign-in rosters will be replaced with electronic poll books connected to the statewide voter database.

  • Election Day will be replaced by 11 days of voting.

That last provision will result in massive voter impersonation…

Over the 11-day voting period, anyone can go to a vote center anywhere in the county … give the poll worker the name and address of any registered voter … sign the electronic poll book with that person’s name … and vote. There’s no intention of checking the signatures in the poll books at the vote centers against the signatures on file in the voter registration records. The only way the illegal voting will be detected is if the real person whose vote was stolen shows up at a vote center later and is told, “Sorry, you’ve already voted.”

The fake voter’s ballot is already in the electronic ballot box and is indistinguishable from every other ballot. It won’t be retrievable…The real voter will be given a provisional ballot. But these aren’t examined until weeks later.

What’s especially scary about this scheme is that counties sell their voter files and voter history data for election-related or research purposes…A simple database program can create a list of registered voters who seldom vote … or who haven’t voted since their death… Thus, a small group of activists could vote for 11 days in 800 vote centers around the state and never be detected.

The only way to prevent this – and all other forms of voter fraud – is with a federal voter ID law.

Judge: ‘Unlawful’ Destruction of Ballots in Race Wasserman Schultz Won

Remember Debbie Wasserman Schultz? Yes, I know, you’d like to forget her as she fades into obscurity — particularly when evidence emerges that she may have tried to rig an election.

Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, may be beloved by family members, but that’s pretty much it. Rank-and-file Democrats detest her for her god-awful handling of the Democratic National Committee’s top role — a position she was forced to resign from after email hacks and numerous scandals. The party’s left fringe believes Wasserman Schultz and her retinue have engaged in pretty sketchy behavior to keep them down. 

Now, I know that supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders do indulge in some tinfoil haberdashery from time to time. However, this conspiracy claim appears to have some legitimacy.

See, Florida has some fairly strict “sunshine” laws when it comes to public transparency, and this spills over to elections. So, when Wasserman Schultz faced a difficult primary challenge in 2016 and won with 58 percent of the vote, it was well within the rights of challenger Tim Canova to request a recount of the ballots.

The only problem is that after much stalling, it turns out the ballots had been destroyed. As in, very illegally. 

The saga has wound its way through the court system, but a judge ruled Friday that the “elections supervisor in Florida’s second-most populous county broke state and federal law by unlawfully destroying ballots cast in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s 2016 Democratic primary … in a case brought by the congresswoman’s challenger who wanted to check for voting irregularities,” according to Politico.like i said

Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes has already been under extreme scrutiny since the incident happened, and what happened during 2016 looks like it’s going to make her job a whole lot harder.

“During the upcoming election, the Department of State will send a Florida elections expert from the Division of Elections to Supervisor Snipes’ office to ensure that all laws are followed so the citizens of Broward County can have the efficient, properly run election they deserve,” a written statement from the office of Florida Gov. Rick Scott said.

Snipes and her lawyer haven’t commented on the ruling. Keep in mind, too, that Snipes got her job 15 years ago when her predecessor screwed up the 2002 Democrat gubernatorial primary. 

There are two takeaways from this. First, Snipes has been on the job a decade and a half and, in spite of Florida’s famous sunshine laws, she still doesn’t realize that she can’t destroy ballots. And second, it’s so hard to find good governmental help these days.

In all fairness, Snipes claimed that she accidentally signed a certification that no cases were pending involving the ballots (this is a blatant lie; Canova had repeatedly requested the ballots). She called it a “mistake” and insisted that “nothing on my part that was intentional.” Which is why she still has her job, of course.REALLY

I’m not Florida’s governor and I don’t have anyone to mollify. However, I think this is pretty much a fireable offense. And, furthermore, I don’t think Snipes did this without permission — not from the very top, anyway.

Wasserman Schultz won easily with 57 percent to Canova’s 43, although this didn’t seem to jibe with polls that showed the race significantly closer. That doesn’t necessarily prove anything, except for the fact that Floridians are getting awfully tired of Wasserman Schultz’s presence.

And if you don’t believe me, just ask them about her IT guy.

Voter Fraud Investigation Launched Into Alabama Senate Special Election

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has launched an investigation into voter fraud accusations from last week’s Senate special election in which Democrat Doug Jones was declared the winner over his Republican opponent, embattled Judge Roy Moore. Moore has yet to officially concede.

The investigation was triggered by a viral video of a Jones supporter telling Fox10 reporter Kati Weis that he and others had traveled “from different parts of the country” to “vote” for their candidate, Jones.

“We came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship, and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together, and we got our boy elected!” said the unidentified man.

Speaking to Fox10, Merrill said the clip was “very disconcerting,” adding that his team is working to identify the man in the video.

“Well, it’s very disconcerting when someone who’s not from Alabama says that they participated in our election, so now it’s incumbent upon us to try to identify this young man, to see what kind of role he played ― if it was to simply play a canvassing roll, or if he was part of a process that went out and tried to register voters, or if he himself actually became a registered voter,” he said.

The secretary of state said he’s received “hundreds” of emails inquiring about the video.

“I’ve gotta do everything I possibly can to try and find this kid and figure out: Was he just exuberant in his expression? Was he overly enthusiastic about what was going on?” Merrill said. “Those things make perfect sense to me. He’s a kid, probably never been on TV before. If he had, he probably hadn’t been on more than a couple of times, probably never been on TV in a situation that was that intense with that much going on.”

Since Alabama has a voter ID law, Merrill noted that it’s unlikely there was fraud.

“Moore still has not officially conceded the election and in a fundraising email on Saturday said his campaign was investigating reports of voter fraud,” reports The Huffington Post.

Alabama Senate special election results must be certified by the third of next month.

WATCH:

Proof that Mass Voter Fraud Swung New Hampshire Election?


Reported By Onan Coca | September 8, 2017

Republicans have been warning about the dangers of voter fraud for years, and for most of that time Democrats have been pretending that the problem just doesn’t exist.

Democrats argue that the GOP fixation on voter fraud is all  about denying some citizens the right to vote, meanwhile Republicans argue that the Democrats near-monolithic defense of voter fraud is all about winning extra votes. Both arguments have merit, but the Democrats are lying when they pretend that the problem simply doesn’t exist.

Every election there are countless examples of voter fraud (sometimes even mass voter fraud) that come to light, and this election has been no different. However, the latest shoe to drop on the voter fraud front could be a game changer… if the national media will pay any attention to the story.

In New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton won the vote by the slimmest of margins. Less than 3K votes separated the two candidates. The race for Senator was even closer, and some local elections were decided by just a handful of votes. These facts make what the state government just discovered all the more troubling. 

State law requires that anyone moving to the state must acquire a new driver’s license within 60 days of establishing residency, but more than 5K 2016 voters have still not done that, leading authorities to believe that these were fraudulent voters who came to the state to influence the outcome of the election.

On Nov. 8, 2016, 6,540 voters used an out-of-state driver’s license as identification to vote but as of Aug. 30, 2017, only 1,014 of those individuals – 15.5 percent – had been issued a New Hampshire driver’s license, according to the data. 

Of the remaining 5,526 individuals, only 3.3 percent – about 213 people – had a registered motor vehicle.

That would leave 5,313 people who used an out-of-state license to vote but never obtained a new New Hampshire license despite being required to by state law after implying that they were establishing residency or domicile in the state to vote in November. 

Of the 5,313 individuals who registered to vote same-day on Election Day, 81 percent – 4,314 people – neither held a New Hampshire driver’s license nor had a registered vehicle in the state ever. 

With the exception of the gubernatorial race – where Republican Chris Sununu easily bested Democrat Colin Van Ostern by more than 16,000 votes – Democrats won all the other statewide and Congressional races.

But three races were determined by less than 5,000 votes: Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, beat incumbent U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte by 1,017 votes although many have suspected that last minute, illegal campaign mailers pushing votes to independent Aaron Day cost Ayotte the race. Hillary Clinton bested Donald Trump by 2,736, earning the state’s 4 Electoral College votes even though she ultimately lost the presidency. U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter was sent back to Congress after she bested incumbent U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta by a few more than 4,900 votes.

In the grand scheme of things 5K fraudulent votes in a nation of 315 million people may not seem like much, but in a state where 3 of the most important races were decided by less than 5K votes, it’s monumental. Consider the failed Obamacare repeal vote; could Senator Kelly Ayotte have helped the GOP ram repeal through? Or how much help could Rep. Frank Guinta be giving the House GOP if he’d actually defeated his liberal opponent?

The state government must continue its investigation and these fraudulent voters must be brought to justice. Voter fraud is a felony and it should be investigated and prosecuted as such.

While the Left Ignores Voter Fraud, More Evidence Mounts to Prove Them Wrong

The 2016 elections have passed, but courts still have plenty of work to do sorting out cases of voter fraud throughout the country. Convictions have continued to roll in this spring, and The Heritage Foundation’s voter fraud database is growing longer by the day.

This week, we are adding 19 convictions, including cases from Texas, Colorado, and Illinois. These are just the latest convictions. Yet despite the overwhelming evidence, the left prefers to bury its head in the sand and refuses to acknowledge the reality of Voter fraud.

Take one example from Kansas. When Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach claimed his first conviction in a voter fraud case against a non-U.S. citizen, opponents of the conviction had no interest in dealing with the facts.

Instead, some groups on the left—like the liberal news site Think Progress—accused Kobach of “voter suppression.” Another Salon article completely dismissed Kobach without addressing the evidence he found, saying, “Someday he’ll have evidence of a problem that doesn’t exist.”

In many states, voter registration requires proof of citizenship. The left calls such policies anti-American. But is that really such a radical idea, that voters in a U.S. election would have to be U.S. citizens?

If liberals want evidence, then Heritage has it. To date, we have documented 773 confirmed criminal convictions in 492 voter fraud cases spanning 44 states.

Here are a few of the newest entries to the database:

  • Toni Lee Newbill, of Colorado, pleaded guilty to voting twice for her deceased father, once in the 2013 general election and again in the Republican Primary of 2016. Newbill was sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation, 30 hours of community service, and was ordered to pay a $500 fine and additional court fees.
  • Noe Olvera, of Texas, pleaded guilty to a federal bribery charge. Olvera, a postman, admitted to taking a $1,000 bribe from a paid campaign worker in exchange for a list of the names and addresses of mail-in ballot recipients on his postal route.

After a two-year investigation into local voting fraud, hidden camera footage surfaced revealing a uniformed and on-the-job Olvera “negotiating an exchange of money for mail-in voter lists.” Olvera is scheduled to be sentenced on May 25.

  • Steveland Kidd, of Illinois, pleaded guilty to two counts of absentee ballot abuse during a municipal election in April 2013. Kidd took possession of, and delivered, an absentee ballot to election authorities despite being legally barred from doing so.

The crime is a Class 3 felony. Kidd was sentenced to 12 days in the St. Clair County Jail and is now barred from engaging in campaign-related activities or electioneering.

  • Brian McDouglar, a resident of Cahokia, Illinois, was sentenced to two years in prison on charges of falsifying or tampering with an absentee ballot—a class 3 felony. McDouglar illegally took an absentee ballot from a voter he was not related to, and then placed it in the mail.

Clearly, absentee voting remains particularly vulnerable to fraud.

Simply put, in most states there are few measures in place to sufficiently verify the identity of those casting absentee ballots. Signatures can be forged—a problem that can be addressed by requiring the voter to include a photocopied valid ID along with the absentee ballot.

But more robust identification requirements would only solve part of the problem. They cannot defend against the pernicious targeting of absentee voters by pressuring, coercing, or “assisting” them in filling out their ballots in order to assure that particular candidates or causes prevail.

So long as states continue to allow the names of deceased voters and residents who have moved away to remain on their voter rolls, they are leaving the door wide open to fraudsters who are willing to take advantage of the system by voting in their names.

The Heritage Foundation published “Does Your Vote Count?,” a guide to help voters and policymakers understand the issue of election fraud. That report provides policy recommendations that states should adopt to help thwart illegal activity and ensure that the election process remains free and fair for all.

Procedures that can be implemented include requiring a photographic, government-issued ID and proof of citizenship to register to vote. In addition, participating in an interstate voter registration crosscheck program will help guarantee that people are not voting twice.

Secretaries of state should verify voter registration data with other state and federal agencies, such as the state Department of Motor Vehicles and the Social Security Administration. Such measures will offer a barrier of protection not only to eligible voters, but also to the electoral process in general.

A single fraudulent vote does more than just cancel out the vote of another American. It puts a stain on the results of the entire election. If voters are discouraged to participate in what they perceive as a tainted process, it only empowers those who would seek to steal elections.

Instead of vilifying those who fulfill their duties to protect the electoral process, the left should embrace the facts. Voter fraud is real, and we must take seriously the task of securing the integrity of our elections.

A Nigerian citizen was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday for allegedly illegally reentering the U.S. after being deported and subsequently committing both tax and voter fraud.

The federal indictment says that Kevin Kunlay Williams voted in both the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections. Williams was deported from the U.S. in 1995, and illegally returned in 1999. The Nigerian illegal immigrant allegedly became registered to vote in 2012 in local, state and federal elections by claiming he was a U.S. citizen.

He allegedly stole public school employees’ identification information and used it to file more than 2000 false tax returns, seeking $12 million in refunds. The Nigerian illegal immigrant also allegedly stole Electronic Filing Identification Numbers (EFINs), which allowed him to print refund checks to send to the IRS.

Williams, a St. Louis resident, also allegedly owned an illegal weapon. He faces charges of mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, voter fraud, illegal reentry, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. His indictment comes more than a month after President Trump alleged massive voter fraud in the presidential election.

Trump DOJ Likely to Find Many Offenses in Voter Fraud Probe, Experts Say

President Donald Trump’s Justice Department will likely find numerous offenses to warrant launching a broad investigation into voter fraud, legal experts and watchdog groups say. Trump has said that more than 3 million to 5 million illegal votes were cast during the 2016 election, causing him to receive a lower popular vote total than his vanquished opponent, Hillary Clinton, whom he defeated in the Electoral College.

One legal organization took action on preventing voter fraud this week. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, a voter integrity group, reached a consent decree with Noxubee County, Mississippi, which has had voter registration that exceeds the number of county residents since 2011, according to the group. A consent decree is a legal agreement between two parties without an acknowledgment of guilt. 

The decree includes requiring the county to identify dead voters on the rolls, clear voter rolls of former county residents, and mail all registered voters who have been inactive since January 2011.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation this week is also seeking to pry the release of information about noncitizens registered to vote in Manassas, Virginia.

Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said it is good that the Justice Department won’t just leave it to the nonprofit groups to weed out fraud.

“We need to know how many noncitizens are voting and know the unknowns,” Churchwell told The Daily Signal. “Trump could just enforce the law. The giant research project he tweeted about, or had a series of tweets about, is worthwhile and only something the federal government could do.”

It’s likely that 800,000 noncitizens illegally voted in the last presidential election, according to Jesse Richman, an associate professor of political science at Old Dominion University, who extrapolated on a 2014 study that examined illegal voting in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

Before the 2016 election, there were several documented cases of voter fraud. These included an FBI probe that found 19 dead people were registered to vote in Harrisonburg, Virginia; a woman arrested in Des Moines, Iowa, for voting twice for Trump; and a CBS News investigation that found multiple cases of dead voters and double voting in Colorado.

8 Instances of Voter Fraud in 2016, and It’s Not Even Election Day Yet

 

Churchwell asserted Trump’s 3 million or more projection couldn’t be proven or disproven, but regardless of whether this is an overstatement, President Barack Obama’s Justice Department ignored Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, better known as the “motor voter” law. This provision requires local governments to maintain and keep voter rolls current.

The Obama administration has not enforced this provision of the motor voter law, and in Florida, Wisconsin, and Ohio, even took action to prevent maintaining the voter registration rolls.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Still others, such as Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice, a liberal legal group at the New York University School of Law, insisted voter fraud is a myth and opposed an investigation.

“An expensive investigation of imaginary voter fraud is not needed. It could easily devolve into a witch hunt,” Waldman said in a public statement. “Worse, it could be used to justify sweeping voting restrictions. There is no need for another investigation that is not independent, rigorous, and fact-based.”

Waldman continued:

“There is a great deal of evidence that our voting system locks out far too many eligible citizens from voting. The voter registration system needs an upgrade, and that is something that should unite all Americans. Errors on the voter rolls are emphatically not signs of fraud—they are signs that we need to improve the system.”words-of-a-leftist-propagandist

An investigation into voter fraud would not be complicated, said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group.

“You can see the numbers we are talking about by looking at public voter registration lists and cross-checking that against a list of noncitizens,” Fitton told The Daily Signal. “The federal government could coordinate with state and local governments and determine who registered to vote illegally. It’s a simple process. That’s why the left is so upset. They know the jig is up.”

Enforcing the law is long overdue, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative at The Heritage Foundation.

“We don’t need [to create] a commission. The Justice Department can enforce the law and work with the Department of Homeland Security, and its records for citizenship and change of status to get an idea of who is illegally registered to vote,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal.

Regardless of the investigation’s outcome, von Spakovsky expects critics will dismiss anything that falls short of Trump’s 3 to 5 million illegal voter estimate.

“They may try to dismiss this, but the American people don’t believe what the media say about voter fraud not being real,” von Spakovsky said. “Polling solidifies that.”

RIGGED: Source Says THIS About Three MILLION Votes… Taking Legal Action

Would it change anything if we told you that Trump WON the popular vote? Because, according to this source, it just might be true. The guy who gave us VoteStand.com (they make a voter fraud reporting app) has weighed in on the numbers for this election. And he has found a problem.

Trump was already dropping jaws with final election numbers. But if the analysis done by Gregg Phillips and his watchdog group is right, there are a LOT of people voting that shouldn’t be.

It’s bad enough that we have video evidence of Democrats tampering with the votes.

Gregg Phillips has found something BIGGER than that. Here’s what he’s saying.

gregg01

Do you think THIS is an important story?

gregg02

The whole point of free and fair elections is that each person with a Valid right to vote gets to vote one time. If non-qualified people vote, or some people vote extra times by pretending to be someone else, they have DISENFRANCHISED those people.

What is the point of Black people or Women celebrating that they have a vote if somebody with their own agenda can stuff ballot boxes having their vote(s) count more than a university student’s single vote? Or a plumber’s? Or a grocery clerk’s?

This is a big deal for a couple of reasons.

This doesn’t even account for the millions of unopened mail-in ballots. In races that aren’t close, they are often left uncounted. Since these have historically leaned heavily in favor of Republicans, that could mean Republican turn out (even without Mr. Phillip’s findings) exceeded Democrat turnout.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Either way, if Trump actually had the popular vote as well as the Electoral college, the cry-bullies rioting their way through major cities can pour themselves a steaming cup of STFU and go cry themselves to sleep somewhere. The people have spoken.

This could prove that the REAL motivation of the lax voter ID laws. Not that we didn’t know before. We’ve got an election official on hidden camera straight up admitting it happens, and explaining who is to blame.

We’ve had a Democrat Governor fast-tack pardons to flood the voting base of Virginia with an extra 60,000 voters just before voting deadline. (He had to use a mechanical pen in order to process all the ‘carefully reviewed’ pardons

We’ve had people accused of improperly handling the mail-in ballots.

We’ve had people calling for non-citizens to be allowed to vote — even Obama didn’t seem to object to that idea.

Should it really surprise us that millions of non-citizens should vote?

So voter fraud just keeps getting worse. According to elections expert J. Christian Adams, there are 4 million dead people on US voter rolls. Adams has since filed six suits in the past year against Philadelphia and Broward County, Florida.

Best one yet, he had one case in Texas where the person died in 1944.

If the Democrats have nothing to hide, than why do they constantly fight to keep the voting rolls the way they are?

Here Are 3 New Cases of Voter Fraud. Governments Must Ensure Vote Integrity as Election Day Looms.

As Election Day looms large, Americans are as divided as ever on the future direction of the country and many of our most pressing issues. One issue that ought to unite the country, however, is the need for election integrity. After all, it is through the ballot box that voters will select our local, state, and federal leaders. It is imperative that the vote accurately reflects the will of our citizens.

Many on the left, however, are unconcerned with the protection of each individual’s vote. They quickly dismiss voter fraud as a myth meant to justify voter suppression. Perhaps progressives are so quick to kill the debate because they know that the facts are not on their side.

Indeed, voter fraud is a very real and ongoing threat to the integrity of the political process, and The Heritage Foundation’s “Does Your Vote Count” project tracks this “nonexistent” problem. Today, we are adding 16 new confirmed convictions for voter fraud to our voter fraud database. That brings the count to over 430 criminal convictions for election fraud.

The Heritage database is by no means reflective of the true scale of voter fraud in the country. Obtaining convictions for election fraud is no easy task because many states lack the procedural tools needed to detect fraud, either before or after it has occurred. Often these cases are given a low priority by overburdened prosecutors, especially after an election is over. In short, voter fraud often goes undiscovered.

Below is a sampling of the new entries:

Missouri

In North St. Louis, incumbent Penny Hubbard won the 2016 Democratic primary for Missouri’s 78th House District by 90 votes. Her challenger, Bruce Franks Jr., contested the results, citing a lopsided absentee vote tally that heavily favored Hubbard. Franks had carried the in-person vote.

District Judge Rex Burlison determined that a sufficient number of improper absentee ballots had been cast to change the results of the election, and ordered a second election. Franks won the redo by a margin of 1,533 votes.

North Carolina

Pasco Parker, a 63-year-old Tennessee resident, admitted to voting in three states during the 2012 federal election. He mailed in an absentee ballot to both Florida and North Carolina, and he voted in person in Tennessee.

Parker pleaded guilty to felony voting fraud and felony voter registration. He received a prison sentence of six to 17 months, and was ordered to complete 48 hours of community service. His prison time was later suspended in favor of 24 months of supervised probation.

Parker’s case speaks to the need for states to adopt policies meant to make it easier to identify duplicate voting and ensure those who do so are brought to justice. Most current state policies are inadequate; indeed, Parker’s fraud may well have gone undetected were it not for the investigatory efforts of a North Carolina volunteer voting watchdog group, the Voter Integrity Project.

Kentucky

Magoffin County Magistrate Gary Risner, Deputy County Clerk Larry Shepherd, and Tami Jo Risner (Gary Risner’s ex-wife) were convicted of felony voter fraud for a vote buying scheme to boost a host of candidates in the 2014 election. An accomplice, Scotty L. McCarty, was also charged, but pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and ultimately testified against the others.

McCarty revealed that the group had participated in vote buying conspiracies in several elections dating back to 2010. He testified that Shepherd contributed $10,000 and Tami Jo Risner contributed $2,000 to the vote buying operation, paying individuals $50 apiece to vote for their slate of candidates. Shepherd also revealed that in a 2010 election, while acting as a precinct officer, he added 60 votes to the total for a candidate and Tami Jo Risner signed the names of those who hadn’t voted to cover the discrepancy.

The Magoffin fraudsters will be sentenced in December. They each face a potential five-year prison sentence.

The right to vote is essential to the American system of government. Consequently, election integrity must be preserved to ensure that every legitimate vote counts, and that our elections accurately reflect the will of the citizenry. But before government at all levels can remedy the problem of voter fraud, politicians must first acknowledge that it exists.

Heritage’s report, “Does Your Vote Count,” discusses the history of, reasons for, and myths about voter fraud. It also suggests practical, commonsense changes that will both protect American elections while encouraging all eligible voters to register and cast their ballots.

As shown in the Missouri 78th House District case, and many other cases in our database, voter fraud can drastically influence the outcome of elections and usurp the will of the people. It’s a serious problem that deserves a serious solution.Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Seeing how VERY easily the DNC private email was compromised, (not to mention seeing how VERY willing Hillary & her henchmen were to cheat) it might concern people to learn JUST how easily the voting machines can be tampered with.

Roughly 70 percent of states in the U.S. use some form of electronic voting. Hackers told CBS News that problems with electronic voting machines have been around for years. The machines and the software are old and antiquated. But now with millions heading to the polls in three months, security experts are sounding the alarm, reports CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have got to be honest,” Trump said to Ohio voters last week.

But for the hackers at Symantec Security Response, Election Day results could be manipulated by an affordable device you can find online.

“I can insert it, and then it resets the card, and now I’m able to vote again,” said Brian Varner, a principle researcher at Symantec, demonstrating the device.

Symantec Security Response director Kevin Haley said elections can also be hacked by breaking into the machines after the votes are collected.

“The results go from that machine into a piece of electronics that takes it to the central counting place,” Haley said. “That data is not encrypted and that’s vulnerable for manipulation.” CBSNews

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.”

So who ended up using the Post’s helpful graphic? The country’s foremost pro-amnesty Hispanic immigrant organization.

The Chicago chapter of Asian Americans Advancing Justice tweeted Blake’s article with the message, “Reminder — #Illinois does NOT require #voterID to cast a ballot,” along with the pro-Democrat hashtag #TurnOutForWhat. The tweet was helpfully retweeted by the National Council of La Raza.

The Democratic Campaign Platform: Lie to Win


By Cindy Simpson ~ October 23, 2014

Read more: http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/10/the_democratic_campaign_platform_lie_to_win.html#ixzz3H08mUe13

President Obama “giftwrapped” the truth Monday, when he told Al Sharpton that Democratic candidates are lying when they distance themselves from him.  The Washington Post summed it up:

Obama’s comments not only “suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him…but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him — something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case.  Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public.”

In other words, straight from the mouth of one liar to another: “Do what you need to do to win.”Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Habitual lying — a proclivity of Obama extensively documented by American Thinker contributor Jack Cashill in his new book, “You Lie!” — is a disorder that has infected the entire Obama administration, as scandal after scandal festers in the “culture of deception” that pervades the White House.

It’s the culture created, as Andrew McCarthy observed in his column on the Obama administration’s handling of the Ebola outbreak, when “incompetence meets mendacity.”  The vastness of this deceptive culture reaches beyond the Obama administration into the entire Democratic Party, on full display in midterm campaigning across the country.

Take the example of candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, Senator Mitch McConnell’s opponent on the Kentucky ballot.  After listing multiple examples of Grimes’s lies, Breitbart’s Michael Leahy described her campaign operation as a “culture of deception.”comment 01

Grimes has certainly produced plenty of slick commercials in which she promises she is “not Barack Obama.”  Running as another “Great Democrat Rural Hope,” she tells voters she disagrees with Obama on “guns, coal, and the EPA” — but intrepid undercover reporter James O’Keefe’s hidden camera documented how perfectly her campaign follows Obama’s deceptive playbook.Cloward Pevin with explanation

Caught on tape, several staffers admitted that Grimes is lying about her support of coal, calling it all a “lying game.”  As one prominent campaign donor put it to another of O’Keefe’s cameras, “She’s gonna f*** [the coal industry] as soon as she’s elected. She can’t say it straight up. She’s going to do what she has to do to get elected and then she’s gonna f*** ‘em.”

Sound familiar?

Yes, Americans, you can keep your health insurance and your doctor. 

Yes, Kentuckians, you can keep your coal and your guns.

And yes — Democrats think that the voters who cling to those lies are stupid.comment 01

culture of decietDemocratic candidates also count on the fact that their supporters who do recognize the lies and deceptive strategies are as unprincipled as the candidates themselves.  As McCarthy further observed, it’s as if “the fibs told to escape the latest jam are more admired for craftiness than condemned as breaches of trust.”

It’s even sadder to realize that even after millions of dollars worth of McConnell campaign ads that point out Grimes’s lying, somewhere in the neighborhood of 44% of Kentucky voters still plan to vote for her. Thousands of voters who apparently really are as stupid or as unprincipled as the Democrat campaign thinks they are.

Although some prominent Democrats have blasted the Grimes campaign as being “disorganized,” as a Kentuckian constantly bombarded with commercials, ads, and robo-calls, I can tell you how very Alinsky-ized it appears. Her campaign may appear disorganized, but listening to her speeches, like this one at a “rally,” reveals the community organizer in her. She may not need teleprompters on both sides of her at the podium, but it is obvious how “rehearsed and scripted and pandering” she really is.

In fact, local reporters have complained that Grimes limits “reporters to just a question or two here and there, during which she doesn’t stray from what often sound like scripted answers.”

Grimes won’t even admit that she voted for Obama. As reporter Keith Koffler noted:  Sure, it’s a sad commentary on Obama. But it is also, quite simply, one of the most craven performances I have ever seen on the campaign trail.”

“Craven” is the word. And it also describes several other Democratic Senate candidates with the same MO.

After Grimes non-answer, Charles Krauthammer concluded that Kentucky voters should be wondering if they can “trust her to speak straight on anything else.” Chuck Todd observed: “if you can’t find a way to stand behind your party’s president, you can disagree with him but can’t answer that basic question and come across looking ridiculous. I think [Grimes] disqualified herself.”

While Todd’s conclusion appears reasonable, in essence it captures the Democrat dilemma — candidates can’t answer that basic question without exposing either themselves or the President as liars.

After the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced it had pulled its support for Grimes in Kentucky, Keith Koffler speculated on the reasons:

It’s not clear to me if this is because they don’t think she can win – she’s down only by a few points to McConnell – or if it is actually in retaliation for her disloyalty to the president, who has raised large sums for the DSCC.  I hope it’s in retaliation because, certainly, she deserves as a matter of principle to be denied access to money he has raised.

Of course, Koffler assumes that the party still holds some principles — positive ones, that is.

But really, we should wonder — will the party that tells lies together, stay together? While the nation gradually loses its trust in Obama, Democrat candidates should (or at least, might) begin losing trust in their leader and the party.

Columnist Walter Hudson, writing about “the number one reason why the left always wins,” noted:  “They don’t care about the means. They don’t care about the process. They only care about the results.”

Apparently, Democrats don’t care about character either.

“Grimes,” observed Koffler, “must assume that having character is not a qualification Kentucky voters are interested in.”

Alison Grimes is simply a prettier version of the politician Barack Obama. A vote for Grimes is a vote for Obama. It’s a vote for every single one of his failed policies.  It’s a vote for Obama’s lies.  It’s a vote for more lying, this time delivered with a southern accent.

Grimes and fellow Democrats can run on their platform of lies, but they can’t hide from the truth.

Voting Machine in Chicago Hardwired to Vote Democrat


MId Term drawing

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Michael Minkoff

Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

A Republican candidate in Chicago, Jim Moynihan, tried to vote for himself in early elections and was surprised to find that the voting machine registered a vote for his opponent, a Democrat:

While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race.

B.S. MeterThis is probably an isolated error, right? There’s just no way that this was an intentional rigging of the election. Right. As the midterm elections heat up, with Republicans slated to win a vast majority of seats in Congress, it seems that Democrats are doing whatever it takes to win. Honestly, this is just par for the course. Voting machine tampering has become more of an issue over the years, and there is good reason to believe voting machines aren’t accurately tallying votes.

Of course, this issue has been widely reported on when it comes to Democrat votes being switched to Republican. The documentary Hacking Democracy showed how easily Diebold voting machines could be hacked. Of course, the film-makers pointed to a vast right-wing conspiracy to change votes and steal elections. But it has been less widely publicized when a voting machine turns left. When a voting machine votes Democrat, it’s a computer glitch or a hardware error. If it turns Republican, it’s the center of some Republican conspiracy.

How about this, though? It’s likely that machines go both ways. It’s very likely that both parties has people within them that are willing to do whatever it takes, even cheating the system, to get their own people elected. And if it is the case that a voting machine could easily be tampered with, perhaps we should just return to paper ballots and a bipartisan counting committee which has to agree on numbers before they are released. Otherwise, we’ll never really know.Leftist party

A Republican party official in the largest county in Arizona says surveillance tape shows a progressive Hispanic activist blatantly and openly engaging in vote fraud.

The surveillance video below was recorded on Aug. 25 during this year’s primary election cycle at a central Maricopa County elections processing facility on the edge of downtown Phoenix.

A. J. LaFaro, Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee obtained the video. He was watching the polls that day during the early-voting period voting for the Aug. 26 primary.

“The team processing the early ballots through the optical scanning equipment had gotten way ahead of the ‘upstream’ citizen boards preparing the early ballot batches for processing,” the Republican party official said, according to the Arizona Daily Independent.

While the information systems coordinator was on a long lunch break, he explained, he was “seated at one of the cubicles looking toward the reception area that is now behind bullet proof glass because of the violence and protesting that occurred by militant groups during the November 2012 general election.”

Between 12:54 and 1:04, LaFaro said, he observed a man wearing a “Citizens for a Better Arizona” T-shirt loudly drop a box containing hundreds of early-voting ballots on a table.

Citizens for a Better Arizona is a progressive group.

The man then began “stuffing the ballot box,” LaFaro said. “I watched in amazement.”

There’s no sound in the video, but the county Republican Committee chairman gave a play-by-play of the conversation that occurred between him and the unidentified man.

“What’s your problem?” the man asked, according to LaFaro.

“I don’t have a problem,” LaFaro said.

“Stop watching me,” the man reportedly demanded. “You’re annoying me.”

LaFaro kept watching him. At one point, he advised the man: “One of your ballots isn’t sealed.”

“It’s none of your business,” the man then reportedly said. “What’s your name?”

LaFaro told him his name and that he is the county Republican Committee chairman. He asked the man’s name.

“Go fuck yourself!” the man allegedly replied. “I don’t have to tell you who I am.”

There was some drama over that unsealed ballot.

At a later point, LaFaro claims, the man said, “Go fuck yourself, gringo.”

In an interview with The Daily Caller, LaFaro described the man as “extremely militant” and “threatening.”

He described the video as the final result of a process he called a “ballot harvest” by a progressive operative.

“What is captured on the tape demonstrates the end result of what we believe to be vote fraud,” he told TheDC.

“This is a smoking gun that ballot harvesting actually does happen.”

LaFaro stressed that the man’s actions likely don’t run afoul of Arizona electoral law. However, he argued, that’s only because Arizona law allows rampant vote fraud.

The state’s election laws have been a source of considerable controversy in the last several two years.

Whistleblower: Obama blocking voter roll cleanup


Obamacare

Posted By Greg Corombos On 10/12/2014

URL to article: http://www.wnd.com/2014/10/whistleblower-obama-blocking-voter-roll-cleanup/

VoteWith critical midterm elections less than four weeks away, the failure to scrutinize voter registrations and clean up voter rolls leaves our system vulnerable to voter fraud, and a Justice Department whistleblower says the Obama administration is actively trying to stop states from bringing records up to date and ensure only eligible voters are casting ballots.

J. Christian Adams further asserts that voter fraud does occur and is indirectly responsible for the passage of Obamacare.

Adams is author of “Crimes Against the Republic: How the Democratic Party’s Voter Fraud is Fundamentally Transforming America.” He left the Justice Department early in the Obama administration and has regularly spoken out about what he considers to be partisan actions by Attorney General Eric Holder on voting and other civil rights issues.

culture of decietTwo flash points he frequently mentions are the DOJ’s decision not to prosecute the New Black Panther Party on voter intimidation charges in 2008 and the battle between Holder and several states over requiring photo identification to be presented before being allowed to vote.

However, Adams said there’s a much bigger problem than either of those matters.

“We have millions of people on the voter rolls who are not eligible to vote, millions of people who are not actually valid registrations,” Adams said. “Absolutely nothing is being done about that from the government’s perspective. Only private organizations have done anything about it. Eric Holder, of course, is the attorney general who could do something about it but does not.”

According to Adams, there are all sorts of people influencing our elections who have no business casting a ballot.

“There are dead people. There are foreigners. There are non-citizens. There are people who are duplicate registrations. They registered in more than one state. Sometimes they even vote in more than one state,” said Adams, noting the case of Wendy Rosen, who ran for Congress in Maryland and voted in her own primary there and in Florida.B.S. Meter

So why aren’t the rolls cleaned up? Adams said in many jurisdictions, there’s literally no scrutiny of voter registration forms.

“They just get put on the rolls,” he said. “They aren’t verified. When states like Florida tried to do the citizenship verification, or states like Georgia, all these groups, including Eric Holder sprung up to sue them to try to stop them from checking to see if they were really citizens. So the states that do try to check for verification frequently find themselves on the bad end of a lawsuit.”

Adams added, “This is something the Justice Department seems perfectly comfortable with. The status quo is something the department is totally comfortable with. Why that is is not something I have an answer to.”Eric Holder

While Adams said Democrats are especially resistant to cleaning up the voting rolls, Republicans bear their share of guilt as well.

“Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller actually defended this,” he said. “He was sued by Judicial Watch and True the Vote for having dirty voter rolls. The state was sued and he put up a vigorous defense and fought back. So in many places, Republicans are part of the problem.”17

Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with J. Christian Adams:

 voter fraud

What cannot be quantified, however, is just how widespread the problem is and how many fraudulent votes are cast.

“We don’t know how prevalent it is, but we know it does happen. That’s the big point,” Adams said. “Do people cast ballots, who are not entitled to cast ballots? The answer to that question is unequivocally yes. The answer to that problem is to get the voting rolls cleaned up.”

But Adams stresses that a small number of fraudulent votes can make a big difference in key elections and is indirectly responsible for President Obama’s biggest legislative achievement.

“Al Franken (D-Minn.) is in the United States Senate because of voter fraud,” he explained. “He won that contest by 312 votes, but there were 1,099 illegal votes cast by felons. Every single felon who was contacted by the Minnesota media said that he voted for Al Franken.”

He noted, “So we have a senator in the U.S. Senate because of voter fraud, and guess what? That senator was the 60th vote for Obamacare. So we actually have Obamacare because of voter fraud,” he said.Complete Message

Adams would also like to scrap Election Day registration. He believes it provides a massive opportunity for fraud and was a critical factor in Franken’s capturing of a Senate seat.

“That’s how Al Franken won the election, because all of these felons showed up to vote,” he said. “They registered to vote but they weren’t eligible to. So Election Day registration makes it hard to police the validity of who’s casting ballots.”

Democrats may be leading the charge against update voting rolls, but Adams had a surprising answer when asked about the how much this effort is coordinated among Democrats.

“Not at all. It doesn’t need to be coordinated,” he said. “This is not some sort of centralized, coordinated effort. This is just simply laziness, atrophy and refusal to do your job.”most important

Adams said many things need to happen to bolster the integrity of U.S. elections, but competent state election officials are a critical first step.

“Awareness is the first step, knowing where the problems are, having elected officials like Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler (and) Brian Kemp in Georgia and Tom Schedler in Louisiana,” he said. “Having secretaries of state who know what the problem is and being willing to fix it are Step 1.”

Dem rep in CT arrested for crime that ‘doesn’t exist’


By Thomas Lifson / September 29, 2014

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/09/dem_rep_in_ct_arrested_for_crime_that_doesnt_exist.html

DemoratesDemocrats and the dominant media assure us that vote fraud doesn’t exist, so we certainly don’t need voter ID, and in fact it would be racist to demand as much proof of identity as is necessary to board an airplane or buy a drink.  Nevertheless, a Democrat state representative in Connecticut was arrested for allegedly voting 19 times. The New Haven Register (hat tip: Weasel Zippers) reports:

State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, D-Bridgeport, was arrested Friday on 19 voting fraud charges.

Ayala, 31, is accused of voting in local and state elections in districts she did not live, the Chief State’s Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

The arrest warrant affidavit also alleges Ayala provided fabricated evidence to state Election Enforcement Commission investigators that showed she lived at an address in a district where she voted while actually living outside the district, according to the release. (snip)

17Ayala allegedly voted in various Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee elections, a municipal primary election and a state primary election between 2009 and 2012 in districts inconsistent with the location of her residence, according to the release. She is also accused of voting in the Bridgeport state general election in 2012 in a district where she didn’t live.

According to the Connecticut Post, Ayala’s mother, Santa, was also investigated by the Elections Enforcement Commission. The commission also recommended criminal charges be filed against Santa Ayala, the Democratic registrar of voters in Bridgeport, but none have been filed as of Friday.Leftist party

The registrar of voters has been recommended for arrest, but vote fraud doesn’t exist, eh?

ATTENTION VOTER ID OPPONENTS: 44,000 Additional Bogus Voters Discovered in Virginia


 http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2014/04/attention-voter-id-opponents-44000.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

 

Guest post by Kenric Ward

RICHMOND, Va. – A crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland turned up 44,000 people registered in both states, a vote-integrity group reported Wednesday.

And that’s just the beginning. 

“The Virginia Voters Alliance is investigating how to identify voters who are registered and vote in Virginia but live in the states that surround us,” Alliance President Reagan George told the State Board of Elections.

George acknowledged that the number of voters who actually cast multiple ballots is relatively small. In the case of Maryland and Virginia, he revealed that 164 people voted in both states during the 2012 election.

But George said his group will expand their search for duplicate voters in the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Georgia.

“We are also determining the best way to identify non-citizens who have registered to vote and may have voted in past elections,” George said.

Working with the Privileges and Elections committees of the state House and Senate, VVA identified 31,000 dead voters via the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File. Subsequent processing by SBE found 40,000 to 60,000 dead voter registrations.

“Dead voter registrations are prime targets for voter fraud which generate few complaints,” George noted.

Appearing with Clara Belle Wheeler of the Albemarle County,Va., Election Board and Jay DeLancy of the North Carolina Voter Integrity Project, George challenged the SBE to:

  • Tighten Virginia’s voter ID law that allows absentee voters to use mailed ballots without affirming their identity.
  • Check the 50,000-plus patient beds in Virginia nursing homes and rehab centers amid reports of voting irregularities there.
  • Require proof of citizenship to register to vote. Kansas and Arizona require this.
  • Annually audit felons who are not allowed to vote.

“Certain nonviolent felons, especially those who commit voter fraud, should never be given back their right to vote,” George said.

More broadly, George said, “Virginia must control the registration process, as well as the form used to register voters. The current system is the perfect vehicle for identity theft and ‘lost’ registrations.”

“There needs to be a clearinghouse for all voter fraud referrals statewide,” he said. “The SBE would be the perfect place to assume that role and provide transparency for the public.”

DeLancy and Wheeler urged the board to open its voter-crosscheck data to the public and to publicize cases of voter fraud.

DeLancy said groups that downplay or dismiss the incidence of ongoing voting irregularities use “pretzel logic.”

“If prosecutors don’t prosecute, there’s no ‘crime,’” he noted.

The three-member state board — controlled by Republicans until the end of the year — took VVA’s recommendations under advisement.

President Obama’s Bogus Voting Rights Claims


http://blog.heritage.org/2014/04/16/president-obamas-bogus-voting-rights-claims/

Photo: Pete Souza

Last Friday, in a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference, President Obama proudly announced that the Justice Department had taken on more than 100 voting rights cases since 2009. The problem with that claim is that, since 2009, the Justice Department has taken on only 39 voting rights cases—and as former Voting Section lawyer Christian Adams points out, only 13 were related to protecting minority voting rights. And, with respect to some of the cases in which the department has been involved, it lost spectacularly—such as its false claim that South Carolina’s voter ID law was discriminatory.

Perhaps President Obama misspoke when he overstated the number of voting rights cases by more than 60—or perhaps he was misinformed by his Attorney General, Eric Holder. In fact, the ever-criticized Bush administration had a much better enforcement record with much higher case numbers than the Obama administration, as was outlined in a report released by the Justice Department’s Inspector General in March 2013. President Obama also made no mention of his administration’s unjustified dismissal of the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party—that would, after all, not fit the narrative he is trying to propagate. Regardless, President Obama’s exaggerated claims come as no surprise, especially given the setting of this particular speech.

Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference in New York City, where Bertha Lewis, the former CEO of ACORN, an organization convicted of numerous voter registration frauds, participated in a panel discussion earlier in the week, was the perfect arena for the President’s inaccurate claims. In her remarks, Lewis declared that there is a “great fear” of what she called the “darker…new majority” that she says wields power in America. She went on to say that supporters of voter ID laws are attempting to implement a “South African apartheid-type thing where the masters of the universe still rule.” She is apparently unaware that Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s former president, supported voter ID laws or that South Africa today has much stricter ID requirements than any state in America.

Consider also that Al Sharpton keynoted a voting rights rally in Ohio this March where convicted voting fraudster and former Ohio poll worker Melowese Richardson was brought onto the stage and given a hero’s welcome. Sharpton embraced Richardson, despite her 2013 sentencing in state court for six counts of voter fraud (as well as her previous convictions for intimidating and threatening a witness in a case against her brother, DUI, theft, and participating in a bar fight). During the investigation into Ms. Richardson’s fraud, she showed no remorse for abusing her role as a guardian of the polls. As Judge Robert P. Ruehlman of Ohio put it, Richardson’s actions diluted her fellow citizens’ votes and infringed on the sacred doctrine of “one person, one vote.”

In light of President Obama’s claim that voting rights “justice” is being administered by the Department of Justice, it is worth noting that Melowese Richardson was never charged by the Justice Department—even though she admitted, on camera, to having voted for President Obama multiple times in 2012, which is a felony under federal law. This type of behavior may explain another claim by President Obama at last week’s conference: that there were “only 10 cases of alleged in-person voter impersonation in 12 years.”

If the DOJ is going to ignore cases in which voter fraud is being openly admitted, their prosecution statistics will continue to lose any semblance of credibility. Not surprisingly, the President ignored the hundreds of people that North Carolina just discovered to have voted twice in the 2012 election and the numerous other cases of voter fraud that have been successfully prosecuted over the past decade by state and local authorities. That wouldn’t fit his narrative either.

The President denounces voter fraud as myth, while ignoring documented cases of blatant voter fraud. In his Friday speech, President Obama said that all Americans must have an equal right to vote and that he is in favor of common sense reform to secure the ballot. Voter fraud prevents Americans from holding an equal right to vote because, as Judge Ruehlman said, the votes of honest Americans are diminished when fraud is committed. And what could be a more common sense reform than requiring the same kind of ID that the government requires visitors to show when they enter a government building—such as the White House or the Department of Justice?

Hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud uncovered in North Carolina


http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/03/hundreds-cases-potential-voter-fraud-uncovered-in-north-carolina/

votingbooth_100212.jpg

State elections officials in North Carolina are investigating hundreds of cases of potential voter fraud after identifying thousands of registered voters with personal information matching those of voters who voted in other states in 2012.

Elections Director Kim Strach told state lawmakers at an oversight hearing Wednesday that her staff has identified 765 registered North Carolina voters who appear to have cast ballots in two states during the 2012 presidential election.

Strach said the first names, last names, birthdates and last four digits of their Social Security numbers appear to match information for voters in another state. Each case will now be investigated to determine whether voter fraud occurred.

“Could it be voter fraud? Sure, it could be voter fraud,” Strach said. “Could it be an error on the part of a precinct person choosing the wrong person’s name in the first place? It could be. We’re looking at each of these individual cases.”

WRAL.com reported that 81 residents who died before election day were recorded as casting a ballot. While about 30 of those voters appear to have legally cast ballots before election day, Strach said “there are between 40 and 50 [voters] who had died at a time that that’s not possible.”

“We have the ‘Walking Dead,’ and now we’ve got the ‘Voting Dead,'” said state Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg. “I guess the reason there’s no proof of voter fraud is because we weren’t looking for it.”

Strach cautioned, however, that in several past cases, instances of so-called zombie voters turned out to be the result of clerical errors.

“We’re in the process of looking at each of these to see,” Strach said. “That means either a poll or precinct worker made a mistake and marked the wrong person, or someone voted for them. That’s something we can’t determine until we look into each case.”

A law passed last year by the Republican-dominated state legislature required elections staff to check information for North Carolina’s more than 6.5 million voters against a database containing information for 101 million voters in 28 states.

The cross-check found listings for 35,570 North Carolina voters whose first names, last names and dates of birth match those of voters who voted in other states. However, in those cases middle names and Social Security numbers were not matched.

The analysis also found 155,692 registered North Carolina voters whose information matched voters registered in other states but who most recently registered or voted elsewhere. Strach said those were most likely voters who moved out of state without notifying their local boards of elections.

Republicans leaders immediately touted the preliminary report as evidence they were justified in approving sweeping elections changes last year that include requiring voters to present photo ID at the polls, cutting days from the period for early voting and ending a popular civics program that encouraged high school students to pre-register to vote in advance of their 18th birthdays.

“That is outrageous. That is criminal. That is wrong, and it shouldn’t be allowed to go any further without substantial investigations from our local district attorneys who are the ones charged with enforcing these laws,” state Sen. Thom Goolsby, R-Wilmington, told the Charlotte Observer.

State House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, and Senate Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, issued a joint statement Wednesday on what they termed as the “alarming evidence.”

“While we are alarmed to hear evidence of widespread voter error and fraud, we are encouraged to see the common-sense law passed to ensure voters are who they say they are is working,” said the statement. “These findings should put to rest ill-informed claims that problems don’t exist and help restore the integrity of our elections process.”

However, other states using the cross-check system have yielded relatively few criminal prosecutions for voter fraud once the cases were thoroughly investigated.

Only 11 people were prosecuted on allegations of double-voting as a result of the 15 states that performed similar database checks following the 2010 elections, according to data compiled by elections officials in Kansas, where the cross-check program originated.

Bob Hall, director of the non-profit group Democracy North Carolina, cautioned officials not to jump to conclusions based on the preliminary database check.

“I know there is more than one Bob Hall with my birth date who lives among the 28 states researched,” Hall said. “There may be cases of fraud, but the true scale and conspiracy involved need to be examined more closely before those with political agendas claim they’ve proven guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Voting rights advocate Bob Phillips of Common Cause NC told WRAL.com that while he is concerned about the report, it still doesn’t justify requiring voters to present photo ID at the polls.

“I think a lot of [lawmakers] are saying, ‘Aha, this proves what we did,'” Phillips said. “But if I have an ID, how is that going to stop me from voting in North Carolina if I’ve already voted in Florida?”

Obamacare exchange sends couple voter registration form pre-marked as Democrat


http://libertyunyielding.com/2014/03/30/couple-receives-voter-registration-form-pre-marked-democratic-obamacare-exchange/#tusSJmJcHkdxurQi.99

By Howard Portnoy on March 30, 2014 at 10:04 am

Last October, LU staff reported that Obamacare exchanges offered visitors an option to register to vote. Brian Cook, a spokesman for Medicare and Medicaid Services, was quoted as saying the exchanges were required to include that option under the 1993 National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

But does that law also empower the exchanges to automatically register enrollees and, if so, as Democrats? That’s what happened to a La Mesa, Calif., couple. ABC News 10 reports that the couple, who asked not to be identified, received an envelope from Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange. Inside was a registration card pre-marked with an “x” in the box next to Democratic Party.

The husband told reporters:

I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife.

SEE NEWS REPORT BELOW:

Voter

Covered California began mailing out voter registration cards to all enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, Young Invincibles, other pro-Obamacare voting rights groups, and the ACLU. Their argument, presented in a 6-page letter mailed to Debra Bowen, the California Secretary of State, noted an “obligation on the part of public assistance agencies to provide voter registration services.” Their petition, which cited Section 7 of the NVRA, was based rather loosely on that provision, which reads:

Section 7 of the Act requires states to offer voter registration opportunities at all offices that provide public assistance and all offices that provide state-funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities. Each applicant for any of these services, renewal of services, or address changes must be provided with a voter registration form of a declination form as well as assistance in completing the form and forwarding the completed application to the appropriate state or local election official. [Emphasis added]

Whether a website can reasonably be called an “office” is open to debate. What is not debatable is the illegality of selecting a party affiliation for private citizens.

There are other problems, noted by the couple:

[T]here’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice.

Anne Gonzales, a spokeswoman for Covered California, told reporters that the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State’s office, with no fields pre-marked, adding that the couple should contact the Secretary of State, which “takes these violations of election law extremely seriously.” The couple claims they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and were unable to get hold of anyone. They then tried contacting the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which told them to contact Covered California.

Is anybody having fun yet?

Almost 4 in 5 Believe Proof of Citizenship Should be Required to Vote

Voter ID

In a blow to the Democrat Party and the Obama regime, who are against presenting any form of identification prior to voting, and in fact call the practice somehow racist, a new Rasmussen Reports national poll finds that 78% of likely U.S. voters believe that proof of citizenship should be required to be presented prior to voting.

In the survey, only 19% oppose the requirement to present proof of citizenship. Rasmussen points out that the number in favor of the requirement is on the rise. Last year, 71% were in favor of the requirement.

Just last month, Obama Vice President, Democrat Joe Biden, equated laws requiring voter identification to “hatred.”

More Proof That The Inmates Are Controlling the Asylum


If you live in California, does any of this bill make sense.

Current State law requires that in order to vote you have to be a citizen, and to be a citizen you must be able to read and write English to pass the citizenship test.

So now, the Democrat controlled California legislature wants to allow non-citizens to work at the election polls to help people with their ballots.

Well, if you have to know how to read and write English, why exactly would you need help from a non-citizen who does not speak English?

This is apparently an attempt by those who would like to continue blurring the lines between legal and illegal voters, because it is more understandable for poll workers to be alerted when someone comes to vote and cannot speak or read English enough to vote.  Additionally, this would open the door to allowing people who are not even citizens of the State of California to become poll ‘watchers’ in Local, State and Federal elections!!

Are these people nuts!?  No, they aren’t, because this action has far more sinister purposes.  Next, election … can we expect to find a group of Philadelphia ‘thugs’ (brown shirts!?) greeting us at our polling places!?

THANKS A LOT SANDY


The aftermath of Sandy defies description.

  • Three feet of Snow in West Virginia;
  • Several inches of sand covering everything several miles inland in New Jersey;
  • The front of a building in New York City completely blown off;
  • A wind-blown fire wiping out 80 homes;
  • Millions of people without power, safe drinking water and uncertain sewers;
  • Transportation interrupted, especially flights.

I have prayed, and I hope you have been too, for the victims of this historic storm. Such devastation boggles the mind and the cost of recovery will be staggering, especially because we’re broke as a nation.

However, Americans have always rallied behind our fellow citizens who are suffering and in need. We will respond again. Already all the forces of good and caring are at work meeting needs and bring comfort. No, I am not including the government.

I have no doubt that needs will be met, rebuilding will happen and “normal” will one day be reestablished. However, I am extremely concerned about a disaster no one is talking about, and “normal” may never be realized again has a result of that disaster. I am referring to the Presidential Election coming up next Tuesday. The storm has opened wider that opportunity for Leftist voting shenanigans.

With all the arguments over Voter Registration, Voter I.D. and Voter Fraud, this natural disaster has provided and added opportunity to make the corrupt more powerful. Consider the national debate;

  • The Left opposes Voter I.D. because they curry the favor of people who are here illegally. I.D.s exposes the fraud.
  • In Florida, over 50,000 people that are on the voting registration rolls are deceased. How many do you think will rise from the dead and vote?
  • The introduction of early voting has given the Left more time to encourage fraud by multiple votes from some people.
  • The Left has already manipulated the Military Vote into nonexistence because they know the Military votes predominately Republican.
  • California has already announced they will not be counting the mailed in ballots, as they did in 2008, because they claim it won’t make a difference in the outcome.
  • The U.N. has been invited again to “observe” our voting because the U.N. has been told that Republicans repress the vote in certain areas prohibiting poor and elderly people from voting.
  • With the power off, some areas will have to go to paper ballots opening the doors for screams of voting irregularity should the Left loose. Yes, it has been reported that the lawsuits have already been drawn up and ready for filing should Mitt Romney win. You’ve also heard how the Left has already arranged riots in strategic areas should Mitt Romney win. That will open the door for Marshall Law to be established, and the election deemed null and void.
  • Like in California, the Registrar of Voters has admitted that many citizens are registered in multiple cities and can’t do anything about that person from voting in each location.
  • There is no way to determine the number of illegal votes in the States that have not passed Voter I.D. laws.
  • Like I said, opened doors more even more voting shenanigans, especially should the election be extended because of Sandy’s destruction.

For conservatives in California elections are becoming a farce. For over 50 years the Left files lawsuits if measures don’t go their way. The courts are so corrupt and Left, that most of the time the Left wins. More and more I hear people say, “Why vote when the Democrats go to court and get the election overturned.” And here the Left is the one always screaming about voter repression. California leads the nation in voter repression because the Left always wins in court when we do not vote their way.

For my house and me, we will vote. We refuse to give up. The drums of revolutionary war are getting louder every day. Will we see a revolution in our day? I’m not sure anymore. I am not armed, and that worries me.

Hopefully God is hearing our prayers asking Him to forgive our sins and heal our land. However, our nation has reached levels of inequity that dwarfs Biblical Israel. They were rightly judged for their turn from God. America deserves the same. Is there a remnant of believers big enough for God to withhold His hand? I don’t know. I am praying He heals instead of punishes. What are you praying for?
