Massive Voter Fraud: 44,000 Just In Virginia. by The Elephant's Child

There is a pattern of duplicate registrations found nationwide that demonstrates that voter fraud is both massive and systemic. The Obama administration claims that there is no problem and demands for photo ID cards are racist.

The following is condensed from an article from Investors:”Voting Dead: 44,000 Registered in Both Virginia:

Al Sharpton was the keynote speaker at a rally last month to kick off a campaign for a state constitutional amendment — an Ohio Voters’ Bill of Rights amendment opposing the use of voter ID in this bellwether state. At the rally, Sharpton gave one Melowese Richardson a hug, while the audience cheered. She was the Hamilton County Ohio poll worker who was convicted of casting five (5) votes for President Obama.

The media? This was just a local aberration, nothing to see here, not evidence of widespread voter fraud and certainly not a justification for voting-integrity measures such as the racist requirement for a photo ID when registering and voting. There really isn’t any voter fraud. Exaggeration.

The most recent evidence  comes from the Virginia Voter Alliance,which cross-checked voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland, and last week announced that they had turned up 44,000 people registered to vote in both states at the same time. It is not known how many Virginia voters are also registered in states other than Maryland.

The Virginia Voter Alliance worked with the Privileges and Elections committees of the Virginia state House and Senate and identified 31,000 dead voters via the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File. Subsequent processing by the State Board of Elections found 40,000 to 60,000 dead-voter registrations.

Dead-voter registrations are prime targets for voter fraud. They generate few complaints, because it is not easily tracked down. People move from state to state, voters die, but voting records are not often updated in a timely fashion to reflect those facts. This leaves an abundance of seemingly valid voter registrations that can be used to skew the results of close elections. It is only recently that rolls have been cross-checked between states.

According to Fox News, a law passed last year by the legislature in North Carolina required election staff to check information for more than 6.5 million voter against a database containing information for 101 million voters in 28 other states. That cross-checking 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.

Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice have sued North Carolina over a series of laws to ensure fair and honest elections, including one requiring photo ID. “We will show that they were discriminatory in both intent and in impact,” Holder said in announcing the North Carolina suit, arguing that “concern of voter fraud is something that is made up” to justify the laws. Photo ID is required to enter the Justice Department building in Washington D.C., which is clearly racist in intent.

There is no factual evidence that requiring photo ID suppresses minority turnout. The only thing it suppresses is vote fraud. Here in Washington State we have plenty of experience with vote fraud. Democrats wanted Christine Gregoire elected, and just kept counting the votes until they found the necessary extra votes. Now we vote by mail, which may be convenient, but offers the best opportunity for vote fraud. If you do not yet vote by mail, expect it to be proposed soon as a more convenient way to vote. No standing in line at the polls. I don’t know if Democrats could win an honest election.



Does Obama Intend to Default So He Can Blame It On Republicans? by The Elephant's Child

Obama has taken a no-negotiations stance on the debt ceiling debate, sending the true signal to the market that he is willing to default on debt if Republicans do not fund the government in accordance with his wishes,” according to John Podesta, founder of the Center for American Progress. Obama lost last time on the sequester, and he has been fuming ever since. He is deeply offended by any limitation on his ability to spend.

Any time you hear the media going on about how the Republicans shut down the government, reread that paragraph. Barack Obama wanted a shutdown. Republicans wouldn’t surrender to Obama’s desire to keep right on spending to excess, and Obama shut the government down and his every speech proclaimed that the Republicans were trying to destroy the Republic with their intransigence, a theme immediately echoed by a compliant media. Obama is undoubtedly the most purely partisan president we have ever had.

The Republican strategy of defunding ObamaCare was doomed from the start. Neither the senate nor the president would sign off on such a thing. Republicans are inclined to think economically. They look at ObamaCare as not just a train wreck, but as wreckage so damaging that it will harm millions of people and do real and serious damage to the economy and the country. Democrats see a shining goal, a system that will care for the poor, and that people will like so much that they can gradually tinker a little to turn it into single-payer insurance that is the permanent political domination of their dreams.

The catastrophe of its first days will soon be fixed, they are sure. Democrats do not think in terms of incentives and inevitable consequences. Ezekiel Emanuel, medical ethicist, brother of Rahm, and health care adviser to Obama had a column in the Wall Street Journal a few days ago claiming that all the talk about a “part-time economy” was nonsense. Statistics showed that a majority of part-time workers wanted part-time work. Certainly many part-time workers are young people attending school, but the numbers of restaurant chains, retailers like Home Depot and grocery chains who are moving their part-time workers to 27 or 28 hours belies his notions. The leading job growth has come from temporary agencies.

Republicans made offers to the Democrats that—were they actually concerned about the welfare of the people and improvement in the economy—they should have jumped at. They offered a delay in the individual mandate that matched the delay in the employer mandate that Obama had already illegally granted. Nobody knows how bad the ObamaCare website disaster will be, but knowledgeable IT experts reportedly believe it is   problems with the basic code and design. It will take a long time and be very, very embarrassing.

Republicans also offered to repeal the medical device tax. This is an extremely destructive tax. It has already sent over 40,000 jobs overseas, cost many jobs here, and worst of all — stifle innovation. Medical devices include everything from stents to wheelchair and prostheses to hospital beds and giant diagnostic machinery. If you are trying to drive down the cost of medicine, you don’t put a tax on medical devices. Even many Democrats recognize the negatives involved.

Republicans wouldn’t get any benefits from either of these changes.  They would have been of great benefit to the economy and to Obama, but Obama is intent, as always, on pure politics. He wants to make the Republicans look bad, and he wants to win. He may be willing to default to achieve that — if he can blame it on Republicans.



The Virtual Inaugural 2013 by The Elephant's Child

Bill Whittle has a marvelous way of getting right to the heart of things. His Virtual Inaugural is meant to be dissent. He doesn’t agree with the direction of this administration, and he presents an alternative Inaugural address to explain the difference. I’m with Bill Whittle. If all Republicans could speak as clearly as he does, we’d be a lot better off.

Here is a transcript of the speech to download. it’s worth reading over several times and thinking about. It’s easy to dissent, to disapprove of policies and actions of this government, but not so easy to spell out what we would do instead. This is truly food for thought, to be pondered, not just scanned and passed over. Enjoy.
