Election officials in St. Lucie County will recount early votes cast in the hotly contested race for Florida´s 18th district´s House seat between Tea Party favorite Rep. Allen West and his challenger, Democrat Patrick Murphy. The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board announced late Saturday it had set an “emergency meeting” to start at 7 a.m. Sunday at its headquarters, to “recount all ballots cast during early voting.” The number of early ballots is estimated by officials to be roughly 37,000. West, who has refused to concede the race, is currently trailing Murphy by 2,442 votes,

fta: "Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes," West for Congress said in a statement. "Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000."

Reminds me of the Al Franken "win" last time. Makes one wonder how many of the close losses followed the same pattern.

Our True The Vote was handcuffed by Holder´s suit, after a successful start, the election clerks were told to halt. All we can do it turn in the anomalies, and it was the clerk´s responsibility to pursue

Download this PDF (below) of St. Lucie County’s vote data to see with your own eyes the massive fraud in EVERY one of that county’s voting districts.

For example, at the Harbor Ridge Clubhouse polling place:
850 registered voters
1,550 cards cast
182.35% turnout

Read ’em all!

Hat tip to the LDotter yesterday whose Michael Savage Facebook page reference led to that St. Lucie County data trove.

I believe Mitt Romney did NOT lose votes in St. Lucie County, Florida . . . I believe Obama CREATED votes there and nationwide.

I´m on a "smart phone" so I´ll have to look at PDF file later . Voting rights include safeguards to guarantee the integrity of elections. Without voter ID laws, the end of inane motor voter laws and contols on early voting, it is over. The USA is reeling into banana republic ststus .

Of course Obama did not ´participate´ in the first debate.

Of course Obama played hoops on election day instead of campaigning.

Of course Obama doesn´t have to answer questions.

When every thing is FIXED for him, Obama does not have to do any of the above!!

Re #5

I just looked at the PDF file. This is WORSE than the Al Franken election. If election fraud is this blatant, what are we to do?

The democrats have figured out that they wont be seriously challenged and the Fed wont do a thing. And..... the Government is NOT AFRAID of the electorate.

Per a buddy of mine that lives there. He is a staunch tea party member. The ballot was two pages long and each page was recorded as a separate vote. Made sense to him.

Mystery solved?

Do we need to send money or other help to Alan West? it is high time someone did contest elections from the right side of the campaign.

In Ohio the state legislature has interview a programmer who made a program that could switch votes on the electronic voter machines. Is there a paper paaath in these precincts in Florida/

Some voters in Florida and Ohio said they voted for Romney and the machine printed obama. Might have been used error but should be investigated in lieu of the Ohio legislature findings.

The GOP have long taken the dems chee\ating rather than disillusion the public as in the JFK Daley Chicagoway provided votes that Nixon would not fight.

We the GOP public can take more fight and we can say, everybody does it.

Allen West was a speaker at yesterday´s Muster at the Seal Museum here in Fort Pierce.As he passed the stands people stood up , applauded and cheered.It should have been his day to celebrate his re-election. He was forceful and upbeat but you could feel the tension in crowd.
There is something very wrong here.

Mia Love in Utah would not have been voter fraud unless in some metro areas. Utah haas voter ID laws.

it could have been closet racism as people defined in the first obama win exit polls. people saying one thing in racism.

If it was voter fraud in Utah it was in some top election official throwing it or reporting it falsely. Too bad Mia didn´t demand recount. Matheson is anati-gun and the rurals hate him.

he campaign ad lies against Mia were that she would raise taxes. And he knows to dog whistle to the conservative "independents". the least politically engaged demographic in the nation on the right side of the aisle IMO--Politics are contentious and contention is of the devil so me not being partisan but independent makes me above it all" Yikes! Can´t fix dumb-on-purpose/

Anyway to the "independents´ Matheson, son of a popular governor, dog whistles that he is "conservative, independent, and working for Utah" (as he continually votes democrat liberal most of the time and they being used to supporting leaders never check his votes-that might be too contentious?

When Khrushchev said Americans were gullible,in his "We will bury you" talk, he knew our open heartedness. And if he had politically analyzed the Utahns? LOL.

Utah is not immune to fraud and cheating at some higher levels and democrats are in Salt Lake City where metro power lies. Who knows and who will ever know unless some lower level person finds out and blows the whistle as in the Olympics scandal. Someone righteously indignant person as in truth will out? Truth will out if someone isn´t bought even in most conservative state in the union, where neither national candidate bothers to waste ad money.

#16, then a) why aren´t the numbers almost 2:1 instead of 1.4:1 in St. Lucie County and b) why are lots of FL counties around .5:1 or .6:1????? The numbers don´t support such a meme.

Without a hand count, there is no way that I know to verify if the machines are not shedding or flipping votes. Remember, it´s who counts the vote.

This a simple script that could be put into the counting machines to do whatever the programmer desires or is instructed to do.

Rep. West needs to demand a hand count.

Yesterday, I came up with an idea how the millions who think Obama´s winning is fraudulent can show their displeasure:

On Inauguration day (Jan.20th), fly your American flag but drape black material around it. Or put your empty chair in the yard or on the front porch with a small American flag plus drape black material around it. Get pictures to news outlets. We really need to reinforce that America died with Obama´s re-election. If the Republicans/Conservatives win any battles in Congress, we can have a massive victory celebration. We must show how Americans feel - that we are not behind Obama. This might wear him and the dRats down a bit so that we can build momentum going into 2014 like we did before 2010.

How sad that today is Veteran´s Day. Where is Barry? Will he honor the Vets? If Barry does speak to an assembled group of veterans, I hope they turn their backs on him ala John Kerry in 2004.

Here in Minnesota, there have been two elections that have been decided by recounts. Frankens was one and the other was the current govenor Dayton. In both, the republican candidate had the lead on the initial count by slight margins. After the recount the democrat won. Funny how that works. And Minnesota´s voters turned down a voter ID referendum during the most recent election.

It was no surprise to me to learn that 3 million people vote twice. Once in their northeast liberal homes and once again when they arrive at their winter homes in Florida.
I have spoken to some of these people and they think it´s funny. Haha,they are putting something over on someone.
There is NO database to discover these people and punish them and until we get serious, this will continue.
I wish someone like Mr. West would tackle this problem.

Am I the only one who finds it not believable that the news media - who constantly touted the huge turnouts for early voting and absentee votes and even after all that, voters had to stand in line for three and four hours to cast their votes, and yet the vote was less than 2008? That is not possible...

Considered the huge crowds Romney was drawing and how well he did in the debates, my guess is that Romney votes were destroyed by the thousands. That´s my theory and I´m sticking to it. (Remember the one poll location where people were not allowed to put their own votes through the scanner? That one poll worker at the time had at least 70 finished ballots piled up beside her?)

I think the ´RATS have perpetrated a massive voter fraud on the entire nation to re-elect Øbama. We should look at Rep. West´s recount demand in Florida as a test case. We all know tha ´RATS cheat to win elections. They thought West would just "go away" after the election fraud but he is standing firm. I bet he will win in an honest recount.

Every conservative group in the land needs to deploy to St. Lucie to prevent Col. West from being "Al Frankened" by the Soros Party. It´s far from over and another election could be called for should fraud be uncovered. Now, I ask you, what are the chances of election fraud being involved when Dems are in a tight race??

#33, you are definitely NOT the only one. I said from the beginning, before we even had a nominee, that Zero would get considerably less votes than in 2008 and our nominee, if we united behind him, would get considerably more than McCain. There is no way I believe Romney received LESS votes than McCain! Impossible.

St. Lucie county, the county next to ours, is a Democrat stronghold, especially since the mass immigration from the Greater New York area into Port St. Lucie by machine Democrats from from places like New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, etc. It has apparently become as incompetently corrupt as that other Democrat stronghold, Palm Beach County, home of the Hanging Chad, and the bungled ballot box stuffing which led to Al Gore´s unexpected defeat instead of his pre-planned victory.

Fight on, fight hard, Colonel West!

We have an electorate that is too stupid to understand that anyone who objects to voter ID is advocating fraud.

We have an electorate that is too stupid to understand that early voting and ´motor voter´ accommodations are put in place solely to support fraud.

If voting is so unimportant to you that you cannot make arrangements to show up at the polls on the appointed day with proper ID (or properly apply for a verifiable, absentee ballot), you probably shouldn´t vote.

Disheartened sums it up. The conservatives who were working overtime for the Romney campaign have to be just sick. We give all this effort and time and Romney lays down and lets the rats steal the election. At the time we needed leadership from Romney he tosses in the towel. Rep West is a perfect example of the type of politician we need if conservatives want to win any elections in the future.
Amazing, the only demographic Obama couldn´t control their vote or change their ballots was the military overseas. So he defunded their voting programs and didn´t have to worry about them.

Why do we bother with the hassle of having elections?

Why don’t we just give our country’s biased, bought & paid for media a pass? Why don’t we just ignore the rampant voter fraud that exists during virtually every one of our political seasons? Why don’t we allow certain prominent, influential people, who have a great deal of firsthand experience with controlled substances although having no formal training in Pharmacology, to make our decisions for us?

Life could be so much simpler.

The computer programmer testimony in the link is common knowledge among tech people. I would have assumed that both parties have tech people to scrutinize the source code for the computers and safeguards to make sure that this code is the code running during the election. I would suggest that the computer report the checksum of its code every time it runs and the original checksum of the scrutinized and compiled code be widely published in newspapers and on every machine. People with smartphones could snap a photo of this evidence. I would think measures such as these should be a minimum if there is no paper trail where the voter can check his paper vote on the spot when he votes!

Candy Crowley still smothers the CNN chair in spite of her blatant cheating for the 0bamessiah. Chris Matthews still slimes the MSNBC chair after saying that a devastating storm Sandy was a good thing since it helped the 0bamessiah.

I´m still hearing sanctimonious Ron Paul supporters saying how they showed that they were needed and they brushed off the Republican party because they CHEATED RON PAUL! They are pleased with themselves.

If it is true that 141% of the eligible voters in St. Lucie county voted then vote over after comparing the voter rolls to the residents. Jail those that were not residents along with Patrick Murphy on conspiracy to commit fraud. Where are the state police? We know the FBI are up skirt.

First have to prove that West won the election, and the next hurdle is something actually being done about it. Good luck to West.

Can they check the presidential vote in that congressional district for descrepancies?

Republican turnout was lower than 2008 and 2004? I never read anywhere that the Republican party has lost membership. Has it? Has all the blame Bush garbage caused Republican voters to switch parties? I know of former Republican voters that left the Republican party because of the Bush era.

Romney would need 64 additional electoral votes to win the election. You would need to prove voter fraud in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, and Colorado to the tune of 500000 to 600000 votes total. Its possible, but has to be proven. Not sure there is enough voter fraud to flip the entire lection. Would need voter recounts in all four states looking for fraud. Early voting could be fraudulent. Are the states using computerized voting? Look for flipping of Romney votes or Romney votes being dropped. Hope there is a paper trail to compare against the electronic vote.

Regardless, the lib media controled the narrative, and should be held responsible. They hid stories, ambushed Romney during debates, and flat out lied.

Message to Rep. West: should you not get the majority after the recount, I would like to request you move your family to Arkansas to establish residency so in two years you can run for Senator against Mark Pryor. He must be "blanched" in the next election. Please come. We would treat you right.

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

A Pitiful Pulitzer Pick

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Texan, 23, Headed To State Prison
For Urinating On The Alamo

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
