Florida just can’t seem to count votes properly. After the embarrassing “hanging chad” debacle of the 2000 presidential election, similar games are now being played in the contest between Republican Rep. Allen West and Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy over the 18th Congressional District seat. Mr. Murphy claims 160,328 votes to Mr. West’s 157,872, but the GOP is questioning the integrity of the vote count, particularly in St. Lucie County. On election night, Mr. West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2,000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots,
Comments: This will enrage you. And just think. This is one city in one state. You know the criminality was rampant all over this country during this election. It sickens me to my core.
I agree with you OP. There is no way on this EARTH I will ever believe this Election was not corrupted by the Chicago-thuggery of obama and his minions. obama got 10,000,000 LESS votes than in 2008 and yet, Mitt Romney got 3,000,000 LESS votes than John McCain? That is absolute nonsense. Bless Allen West for having the intestinal fortitude to at least stand up to the garbage coming out of Florida, as usual. It IS sickening.
FTA: ''On election night, Mr. West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2,000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots, resulting in an awfully convenient 4,400-vote shift in favor of the challenger.''
In a ''fair'' Universe, since this is a Federal election, the FBI should immediately step in and take control of the ballots and their count. Oh, a little too much partying with paid female ''guests'' that night to 0bama celebrations by the Secret Service.
This is actually the epitome of the last 40+ years of trying to get racial equality. A conservative black candidate is shunned by his people in Amerika, while a pathetic liberal Illinois Congressman [Jackson], who's been hiding in rehab at the Mayo Clinic for more than five months, easily gets reelected. The Berlin Wall may have come down in my lifetime, but racial bigotry, by their own people, won't. [Being visibly ''Hispanic,'' I see it in the Spanish culture & my own family, as well].

I agree with #1. I watched the Florida and Virginia votes come in from the very begining. Both states were very close, but Romney was ahead most of the night. What got my attention was that when most of the counties had 100 percent of the vote counted. The democrat districts had only counted 30 to 40% of the ballots. Seems to me, the dems waited to see how many votes they needed to win, and "presto".... 0bama´s vote expanded....and expanded....until they had enough of a margin to win going away.
Well said 1 - we all figured Obama would get maybe 9 -10 million less votes than 08, and that Mitt would get 5-10 million more than McCain got. That´s what everything was telling us. Our eyes, the common sense, everything. West´ discoveries could be the start of something big, very big.
All of the appearance of voter fraud seems to have occurred in swing states.....not the blue states nor the red states that no well in hades would have voted for the "won". Hmmmm.......strange. Check out the numbers of voters against total voting age of Colorado voters. How often does a county get 140%, 110% and etc. voting when the state average is about 41%. Only 10 counties checked so far. Can you say "VOTER FRAUD"???? Machine malfunctions------swing states! Were the machines hacked?
It feels like we´re living in Venezuela under Hugo Chavez. How did we allow a handful of thugs to get so cocky about their ability to commit voter fraud and get away with it, that they personally go on TV every week and chuckle and mug for the cameras as they lie to us?
Axelrod and Rove topping the list. If what I now think is true, they should both hang at opposite ends of the same rope from the same limb.
Yes voter fraud happened. You knew it would. It likely cost the election. Will anything be done about it? no. Will the MSM report it. No. We needed to come out in such numbers to crush the fraud. We did not. We have lost America. She is gone for good. You should feel as sick as you do.
9 million republican votes dissapear. The media say that their painfully obvious rigged polls were right. Dems say that Ron Paul supporters stayed home. Mathmatical improbabilities abound. I predict that holder´s DOJ will very soon step in to shut down any effort to investigate.
They don´t even care if you know anymore. Even if you have evidence of fraud, who could you apply to for redress? Issa? Issa is still working on the last term´s scandals.
Republicans never took voter fraud seriously - since JFK´s Dad bought the Presidency for him. It´s only gotten worse. Democrats nearly succeeded again in 2000. It´s hopeless because Republicans refuse to face this. We have who knows how many Democrats in this country who now hold office, and have for years, all due to voter fraud.
Yes #14, the republicans do nothing, they don´t even acknowledge that the fraud exists. There is nothing I can do and I´m going to do my best to try not to be miserable and to survive. My health depends on it, I cannot live like this anymore. Fighting every day with no vehicle by which to succeed. The deck is stacked. I fold. I´m "going dark".
Apparently we have to "hit the wall" before people wake up. I will pray to God every day for his protection from this madness and try to stay off the radar, low profile for me.
Allen West is an almost singlular ray of hope in the vast cesspool that we find ourselves in.
I´ve been saying all along, something is not right. Rasmussen and Gallup have consistently been right on in their polling during last few races, now they are very wrong...Give me a break. That is why people are walking around shell shocked because it just does not add up! Dems cheated, somehow Soros and Axelrod cheated. Remember in PA, Repub pollster judges were not let into voting places until judge ordered it? What were the Dems doing for those three to four hours?
I don´t get the low turnout for Romney either. His crowds were huge; people were going to crawl over broken glass to vote for him (that is, against Obama). The NRA was fired up. Fewer votes than for McCain? When we all said we were going to hold our noses to vote for McCain? When our vice presidential candidate (whom I loved and still love!) was villified as an idiot? When we knew something about how bad Obama was but not as much as we did four years later? I suppose I should just accept the numbers as fact, but I can´t help feeling something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
When Republicans do all they can to ensure that minority populations cannot vote easily, they should not be surprised that fraud occurs. Voting should be easy, quick and honest. There were dirty tricks played by both Democrats and Republicans. When you have mob scenes at the polls you are not going to get honest totals. Both sides have a vested interest in having honest elections, I see no possibility of change happening.

The people vote,then the unelected nobodies come out of their commie closets and count the votes.Always a car trunk of democrat ballots show up just in time,every time.I think I see a pattern here and it is bad.
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
On Sunday, a media reporter for the Washington Post said he believed that MSNBC had fired host Martin Bashir because conservatives were relentless and did not quit in hammering Bashir and MSNBC for Bashir´s suggestion that someone should urinate and defecate in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Bashir resigned from MSNBC last week, nearly a month after he made his scripted remarks on his MSNBC program. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, the Post´s Paul Farhi said "the outrage was from the right, the idea that Sarah Palin and, by the way, a woman, obviously was
Firebrand Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman on Monday mounted a surprise primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), setting the stage for the latest potentially explosive battle between a tea party darling and an incumbent firmly backed by the GOP establishment. Stockman, a far-right conservative who has called for the president’s impeachment, filed for the seat minutes before the 6 p.m. local deadline, confirmed Spencer Yeldell, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas. Cornyn — with cash-on-hand clocking in at nearly $7 million — is still the heavy favorite, but Stockman’s entry into the race could force
On Monday, the National Journal reported that "documents filed by other groups show that two labor organizations, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers´ International Union of North America, directed a combined $400,000 to the Republican group [the Defending Main Street super PAC] in September and October." The Defending Main Street super PAC was organized at the end of 2012 by former Congressman Steve LaTourette (R-OH), and has very publicly declared war on the Tea Party. It is affiliated with and has offices at the same location as the Republican Main Street Project, which LaTourette currently
New York Republican Rep. Peter King, who has been vocal about his interest in running for president in 2016, won´t shy away from a fight with another tough-talking Northeastern politician. “You should ask Chris Christie if me being in the race disqualifies him," King told City & State when asked whether the New Jersey governor´s likely candidacy will preclude his own. King announced his interest in the race earlier this year but hasn´t yet made an official decision to enter, and many observers believe Christie´s candidacy would overshadow King´s, as they´re both tough-taking moderate Republicans from neighboring states. King has so far
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
