Desperate Democrats Cheating from Coast to Coast by American Elephant

From massive registration fraud, to disenfranchising military votes, to backing spoiler candidates and more, Democrats are pulling every dirty trick they can think of to hold on to as many seats as possible. And these are just the stories we know about. Vote fraud is inherently difficult to catch, so if we are hearing about this many cases already, you can bet there is a great deal more fraud going undiscovered.

This is why we all need to volunteer to help get out the Republican vote. It’s very simple: we need to get SO many Republicans out to vote, that there simply aren’t any close elections. It’s the close elections that Democrats try to steal. Just ask George Bush, Dino Rossi or Norm Coleman. We can’t just win, we have to win by more than the margin of fraud.

You can volunteer to help your Republican candidate, or (if your local race isn’t competitive) OTHER vulnerable Republican candidates by going here, or by calling your local GOP.  Volunteering is extremely easy. They give you a script, and tell you everything you need to do. Most campaigns are looking for people to call Republican voters and remind them to get their ballots in, go door to door at houses they have pegged as likely Republican leaners to ask if they plan to vote, and they are looking for people to poll watch on election day to prevent/record/and object to Democrat cheating.

A HUGE hat tip to Michelle Malkin, Gateway Pundit, and Hot Air for finding the vast majority of these stories. I just wanted to put them all together in one place. I will try to update this post as new stories come in. Be sure to send us tips if you see stories that aren’t reported here.

Nevada:

Florida:

Colorado:

  • SEIU and Mi Familia Vota caught in attempt to turn in 6,000 fraudulent voter registrations.

Arizona:

Washington:

  • Illegal aliens canvassing across state  for Patty Murray and Democrats . (ACORN was previously convicted in Washington for committing the worst case of registration fraud in state history. And heavily Democrat King County has been a regular source of corrupt shenanigans from disenfranchising military ballots, to disenfranchising voters in Republican leaning districts, to “finding” hundreds of previously uncounted and in some cases unsecured ballots to steal the gubernatorial race from Dino Rossi after he won the first two counts.)

Update: Pajamas Media has started a Vote Fraud Watch with a primer by an election law expert on what to watch for.



Obamacare Makes Health Care Rates Go UP — Way Up! by The Elephant's Child

In California, state regulators have allowed Anthem Blue Cross to move ahead with rate hikes, which average 14%.  Blue Shield of California is allowed by regulators to move ahead with rate increases — averaging 19% and as high as 29% — for 250,000 individual California policyholders.  Anthem’s original plan was to increase premiums as much as 39%, but they got a lot of criticism from consumers regulators and even President Obama.   A consultant found math errors.

Here in Washington State, we just got notification of a 16% rate hike.  Welcome to ObamaCare.  Eventually government insurance will begin to look cheap — but that was the plan all along. They promised that ObamaCare would save money, their ideas would make health care more efficient, everyone would be insured, preventative care would save money,  computerizing health care would save money.  All lies.  All Lies.  All Lies.

Bush was right/Democrats lied #379: by American Elephant

Democrats unanimously confirm the four-star General they previously accused of lying about the Surge and referred to as General “Betray Us.”

How anyone who votes Democrat can even face themselves in the mirror is utterly beyond me.



Obama “restoring science to it’s rightful place”… by American Elephant

…one space-heater with a feather-duster taped to it at a time:

The federal government has been slapping “energy-efficient” ratings on products that don’t even exist — including a bogus space heater with a duster stuck to it and an alarm clock supposedly powered by gasoline.

These fake products were submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy for approval as part of an undercover investigation by the Government Accountability Office.

The office wanted to see how easily the feds could be duped, since the Energy Star program used to identify products as energy savers serves as a guide to businesses looking for such modern marvels and the basis for millions of dollars in incentivizing tax credits — including $300 million from the stimulus.

The products fooled the federal government three out of four times. Of the 20 products submitted for approval, 15 were given the thumbs up. GAO reported that the federal government generally did not ask for critical evidence to back up its claims about how energy-efficient — or real — its bogus products were. [read more]

It turns out that when Democrats talk about “restoring science to its rightful place,” they mean corrupting it and lying about it in order to grow government. Or, in other words, pretty much the same thing they do with everything else.



217 Democrats Vote to Destroy America by American Elephant

Happy Dependence Day!

Mark Steyn sums up my feelings well, with far fewer expletives. Read his piece. I know many people don’t understand how destructive this bill is. Steyn’s piece is a good starting place. We can either be a nation of free independent people, or we can be a nation of welfare recipients. We cannot be both. It doesn’t work.  Our founders (and others) understood what Obama and the rest of the socialists do not:

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

~ Thomas Jefferson

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

~ Benjamin Franklin

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”

~ Alexander Tytler

Obama and the Democrats have just lurched us towards decline. We were a very abundant, very generous nation. Democrats and Obama are using greed and selfishness to try to skip straight to dependency, Dependency on Democrats. It truly is evil.

I’ll write more when I recover my optimism. The Elephant’s Child chose today to have computer problems. She’ll hopefully be back tomorrow.

Until then, America WILL overturn or repeal this. If not because we still cherish liberty, than at least because the punishment in higher premiums, higher costs, higher taxes, less employment, less opportunity will start long before any supposed benefits.



The Administration is Very Anxious to Control More of the Economy. Be Nice if They Knew What They Were Doing. by The Elephant's Child

Mitt Romney’s new book,  No Apology” The Case for American Greatness apparently makes the claim that “government is calling the shots on every major decision at GM, including which plants to expand and which to close.”

According to long-time Detroit newspaperman and political cartoonist Henry Payne:

White House spokesman Matt Lehrich told the Detroit News: “While the president will continue to monitor the taxpayers’ investment in these companies, he has enough on his plate to have no interest in running them. Decisions and management are handled by the company alone.”

Payne lists the ways in which Washington isn’t running GM.:

  • The Obama administration forced GM into Chapter 11 last March and rejected its first restructuring plan as inadequate.
  • The Obama administration fired GM CEO Rick Wagoner.
  • The Obama administration appointed new GM board chairman, Ed Whitacre.
  • The Obama administration forced GM to reverse a decision to build its new small car in Asia.  To satisfy UAW demands, the car will be built in Orion Township, north of Detroit.
  • Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) strong-armed GM into keeping open a facility slated for closure in his district.
  • Congress has balked at GM’s dealer streamlining plans, passing a law requiring dealer arbitration.
  • And just today, the Obama administration GM announced that it would discontinue the gas-hungry Hummer.

Makes sense to me.  Once again, Obama’s ideology trumps the facts.  He believes firmly that oil and gas are dirty and evil, that “clean green” policies will save the planet, in spite of all evidence to the contrary.  Or perhaps it is just payback for the environmental organizations that supported his campaign.  The Chicago Boys are very big on paying back your supporters.  It’s called “crony capitalism.”  Used to be called “graft.”



Obama: Brown Won Because People are Angry…With Bush by American Elephant

[click image to watch]

Before yesterday’s election, when Obama was trying to scare up votes for Martha Coakley’s floundering campaign, he warned Democrats this election was a referendum on him and his agenda. Now that even liberal Massachusetts has rejected his agenda, Obama says Brown won because people are angry with…I kid you not… President Bush…

The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office; people are angry and they’re frustrated; not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.

The president is a child.
