Maybe Trump Really Did Win the Popular Vote

Let’s say, just for fun, that you were a flight attendant. One of your jobs is to check the number of passengers vs. what’s on the flight manifest. Too few and you would chalk it up to someone missing their flight. Oh well. But what if there were too many passengers? You would figure there’s a problem.

The same might go for a cruise ship, like the Love Boat. Maybe Gopher, the ship’s purser, found a discrepancy. He discovered there was a stowaway – or maybe several more on board than the ship’s manifest indicated. Naturally you would think he would alert the authorities. Stowing away is illegal.

You know what else is illegal? Falsely registering to vote. But this, according to the left, simply isn’t happening. It was just another hyperbolic claim from our unhinged President.

However IBD, reporting on Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project, found that, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens.” You don’t say. read more

A Well-Deserved Light Finally Being Shown on Democrat Voter Fraud

I’ll give Donald Trump props for at least one thing. He has and still is causing the needle to move on some very important issues which would otherwise get little press.

Early on it was illegal immigration and building the wall. To his credit he brought that topic to the forefront. Then it was the Muslim/refugee issue. Again, he spearheaded the attention brought to the subject.

And now, thanks to The Donald’s recent debate declaration about shady electioneering, everyone is talking about voter fraud. And just like every other political topic, battle lines have been drawn.

The ones who are having the fraud perpetrated on them, the Republicans, are raising alarms all over the nation and the ones perpetrating the fraud, the Democrats, are saying its all much ado about nothing.

But then you go back, watch and listen to the two senior democrat operatives (and others) highlighted in James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video, and anyone with a brain must conclude that these two will do and have already done anything to get Hillary elected. read more

Elections Will Be Stolen

from: IBD

Theft: As “calibration errors” switch votes in Illinois and Maryland, an election watchdog group sues the latter over massive voting by noncitizens in one county after discovering voters registered in multiple states.

The fact that many people will do anything to get out of jury duty has exposed massive fraudulent voting in Frederick County, Md., that may have been going on for years. Illegal aliens who stated they were noncitizens on jury duty forms were found to have cast votes in elections. read more

If We Can Save Just One Vote

by: the Common Constitutionalist:

With the midterms less than a week away, we are being bombarded with campaign ads. The radio, TV, Internet – they’re everywhere.

We are also being deluged with stories of campaign fraud. Yesterday I wrote of Colorado’s new all mail balloting and the potential for massive fraud in that state.

But in fact the fraud doesn’t need to be widespread or massive for Democrat hacks to claim victory. The Wall Street Journal reported that, “In 2014, 16 local races in Ohio were decided by one vote or through breaking a tie. In 2013, 35 local races in Ohio were that close,” and the Obama rubberstamp, Al Franken, won his Senate seat by 312 votes.

Many local, state and even national races are often decided by 500 votes were less. Various types of Democrat fraud could more than tip the scales.

The Journal also reported that, “A Mississippi grand jury indicted seven individuals for voter fraud in the 2013 Hattiesburg mayoral contest, which featured voting by ineligible felons and impersonation fraud. A woman in Polk County Tennessee was indicted on a charge of vote buying – a practice that the local district attorney said had too long ‘been accepted as part of life’ there.” read more

Colorado Vying for Election Fraud Champion

by: the Common Constitutionalist:

Evidently Colorado has been working hard to obtain the crown of biggest election cheaters in the nation. They have some stiff competition, but with Governor John Hickenlooper’s 2013 signing of a new election law, I’m sure they feel confident.

The 2013 law has effectively nullified Election Day in Colorado. All ballots are now mailed to voters far in advance. Of course one can’t just mail back the ballot. According to the Jefferson County election website, “You must seal your ballot in the official return envelope”, and then one can mail it in.

But is there another option if you choose not to mail in your ballot? Why yes… yes there is. You may drop off your ballot at any one of many 24-hour, undoubtedly unmanned drop-off sites.

Colorado Common Cause thinks this is a great idea, saying that, “Under the new law, every registered voter will receive a mail ballot and it will be their decision on how to cast their vote. Voters can mail back their ballot, drop it off, or vote at a voting service center during early voting or on Election Day.”

“The goal was to assure maximum access to the ballot and integrity in elections,” said Carol Tone of the Colorado League of (liberal) Women Voters. read more

Election Observers

Texas Attorney General warns OSCE on Election Observations

by: Neil Stevens

Left-wing groups have gone to international organizations in the run up to this election, seeking to apply global governance to the United States.  The results of this is that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE, not the UN as is often reported) has announced it will send election observers, with the implication that Voter ID laws are a problem.

Now, the reason they’re only investigating Republican-run areas is that Republicans would never run to the OSCE or anyone else to interfere with American elections.  But that said, we must not let the OSCE observers think they are above the law.   The OSCE is a voluntary organization and it has no binding authority over anyone, which is why Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has warned the OSCE that Texas laws will apply, including bars on unlawful entry of polling places.

Abbott wasn’t shy as he closed his letter:

Elections and election observation are regulated by state law. The Texas Election Code governs anyone who participates in Texas elections—including representatives of the OSCE. The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.

It seems clear to me that if you’re threatening to prosecute foreign observers, then you’d have to arrest them to do so, because otherwise they’d just flee the country.  Arresting OSCE observers would be a strong act to preserve the rule of law, which of course means he’s going to get strong opposition from the left on this.

But I’m sure glad America has Texas to take the lead on liberty and federal government, time and again. If not Texas, who?

Saved by Sandy?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The following article in no way makes light of the tragic situation people find themselves in due to hurricane Sandy. The loss of life and property is horrible. For the loved ones I have in the effected areas, I wish you all the best.

Our beloved president may have been spared the humiliation of being thrown overboard by the liberal progressive commie establishment.

Hurricane Sandy, created of course, by the republican’s secret weather machine, may have inadvertently saved Barack Hussein Obama.

See, liberal ideas or policies can never be to blame for any election loss. I’m certain the liberal powers-that-be were all set to toss King Barack off his throne and under the proverbial bus. It was his fault, not liberal ideas. He just didn’t or couldn’t get the great collective message out. Heck, he only had four years.

No man (or god) will be allowed to shake the foundation of liberalism, not even the “Anointed One”.

But now hurricane Sandy has possibly bailed out Barack.

Alex Guillen of Politico floated the trial balloon this past Monday, of the possibility of postponing the election, despite it never being done before.

Not for any previous natural disaster. Not even for any war including the Civil War, in which, in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln acknowledged that the scheduled elections, “added not a little to the strain” of the ongoing struggle, but postponement was not an option. “We cannot have free government without elections; and if the rebellion could force us to forego or postpone a national election, it might fairly claim to have already conquered and ruined us.” Lincoln further noted that keeping to schedule “demonstrated that a people’s government can sustain a national election, in the midst of a great civil war. Until now it has not been known to the world that this was a possibility.”

That same day (Oct. 29), the White House cheer squad (press corps) asked Obama spokes boy, Jay Carney, “Jay, some of the utilities are saying that the power is going to be out in some areas for up to ten days. That would obviously include Election Day. Is there any contingency planning to alter the Election Day schedule because of this?”

The mainstream will, of course, do whatever it can to secure victory for their man.

On it’s face, this strategy makes no sense. It is completely illogical, but when it comes to the thinking of the left, logic has no place.

What possible gain could be had by postponing an election where only a few states, 2 in particular, were drastically effected? Those two states being New Jersey and New York, which Obama will win anyway.

But this is not the strategy at all. The democrat operatives in Washington no full well that the election will not postponed or changed in any way.

I’m betting, through internal polling and other sources, the liberal elites know Obama will most likely lose this election and may lose big.

Rather than accept the failure of policy, they must somehow create a situation on which to blame the loss.

Much as the liberals did 2000, they must also form a narrative of the election being stolen.

I’m quite sure they don’t favor throwing Obama under the bus, but if it must be done to save liberal ideology, so be it.

It will be much easier to now blame, at least partially, the election loss on the storm.

But the storm only severely effected a few states. How can that be to blame?

Several national polls have just been released showing Obama now winning key battleground states, such as Ohio. Never mind the polls are crap, but they still show Obama ahead.

Obama has suspended his campaign for a few days to actually play president. First time for everything, I know. He’s not really doing anything, but it has that appearance, none the less.

Those on the left, including all the mainstream press, will cry foul, that he, the president had to attend to the business of running the country, while that scum, Mitt Romney doesn’t have to concern himself with such things and can just campaign to his heart’s content, giving Romney the decided advantage. This, among other things, caused Obama to lose.

There will also be the predictable cry of cheating republicans, voters disenfranchised and discrimination due to new voter I.D. laws. The international observers will raise objection to something and lawsuits will follow.

One way or another, Romney will be said to be illegitimate; selected not elected. Sound familiar?

The only way to prevent most of this from occurring is a Romney landslide victory. We will never eradicate all the malfeasance of the left, but a clear and concise victory will quell most of the whining.

And as uncharitable as it may sound (and it is), it would please me greatly to see Obama get tossed in the trash heap of history by those same sycophants who have been fawning over him for years.

Election Watchdog

by:  of The Blaze

A nonpartisan election integrity group has sent legal notices to 160 counties across the U.S. that it says have more voters on its registration rolls than actual live, eligible voters — and thus represent potential hotbeds for election fraud, the organization told TheBlaze exclusively.True the Vote 160 counties more than 100 percent voter registration

The Houston-based True the Vote said the counties may be in violation of Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, which mandates that election officials maintain clean voter rolls by removing people who have died, moved away or are no longer eligible to vote. True the Vote is demanding each of the counties show proof of compliance or they’ll bring civil suit.

The counties in question are spread across 19 states that together account for 203 electoral college votes, including six current battleground states. Among the counties are LaSalle, Ill., which True the Vote identified as having 520 percent voter registration; Jefferson, Miss. with more than 230 percent; and Hanson, S.D. with 165 percent.

“It’s simply unacceptable for any county to have more voters on its rolls than people who are alive and eligible to vote,” True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said in a statement. “Failing to maintain accurate voter registration records is a flagrant violation of Section 8 in the NVRA.”
