There are 15 states with photo ID requirements for voting. Mr. Obama lost in all of them. In places with the weakest controls, specifically counties in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, he generally drew turnouts in the 90% or greater range and won by better than 95% of the vote. Losers tend to look for external explanations, and a lot of conservatives looking at numbers like those from Florida´s St. Lucie County (where Mr. Obama got 247,713 votes from only 175,554 registered voters) are starting to question the legitimacy of the electoral results as reported.
Of course the democrats cheated. They have a long history of cheating, in order to win elections and they have perfected their con.
One of our ex-residents, living in an assisted living complex was taken to the polls by the democrat organizers in their "free bus", along with everyone else capable of traveling and the entire trip to the polls they were told the republicans would be taking away their medicare and kicking them out into the street, so they had to vote straight democrat to save their assisted living arraignments. The driver scared her so she voted straight democrat, instead of voting for Romney.
I read every word of that article and at the end came up with a single question: Who is going to read this article, understand it and then do anything about it?
...the system works only if we trust it -- and having a majority in the GOP write off a minority who think the results were rigged serves nobody. Not even Democrats.
It may have been fun for Mr. Murphy to put this all together but I have another point. He assumes that "a majority in the GOP wrote off a minority who think the results were rigged". How does Mr. Murphy know for certain that a "minority" of GOP voters think Obama won this election fraudulently? From every one I spoke with, all believe this election was riggefd from the day O was elected in ´08.
Maybe someone should actually check the voter roles and check every vote for people who have addresses and who have registered to vote, which Mr. Murphy does mention. But who is going to do that?
The lack of outrage on the GOP side about voter fraud we KNOW about is staggering to me. We all know this election was stolen.
I live in MA. I don´t think he cheated here, I think our voters are just that stupid. And everytime they complain about things costing more, their taxes, them getting less, our economy doing poorly, I´m going to tell them they voted for that. Consequences for their actions, common sense and logic are not in their understanding.
The republicans PR machine is a disaster and they have no activist groups like the left had thousands.Why isn´t Issa calling these suspicious vote result districts before congress> Because they´re scared of the media.
Instead of addressing the vote fraud,they´ll reach out to hispanics young people tax increasers and the like.
If you haven´t taken a course in Statistics in college, the article might not make sense; however, as others here have pointed out, there are nuggets of truth in the article that make sense without the statistics.
It bothers me that the GOP is not fighting for recounts and some investigation into counties where there was more voting than there were voters.
Before the 2014 and 2016 elections, there must be voter ID laws in place in as many states as possible. The GOP must make that their mission. No more Mr. Nice guys, or reaching across across the aisle. I, for one, don´t want them making any deals with the Demrats because it will ultimately hurt me and mine.
Answer to the question in the headline: Hell yes! He has done that all his life.
Voter ID is key. There were scores of folks signing people up to vote at the grocery stores, just sign the document, no need to show any ID at all, they filled out the form for you. In several weeks time the voter card was mailed. Never showed any form of ID whatsoever. At that time the migrants were still here, wonder how many of them signed up and then voted absentee?? In years past we were asked for ID at the polls, not this year.
#9, don´t depend on Issa. He´s is just a distraction, a part of the Washington Grand Kabuki that keeps the peasants entertained. Issa has had "investigations" going for years. Nothing ever happens. What are his results? Well, let´s see: no charges brought against anyone, no one referred to any court and no resignations. In short, no results. Zero.
On second thought, there is one result and it happens to be the one intended. Issa gets to look like he´s busy doing something for the sheep - unless the sheep look to closely. DC is totally dysfunctional at every level and there is no way it can ever be fixed.
Certainly not! Obama didn´t cheat in the election, nor did he get anything less than A+ in his very hard college classes. His election victory reflects the widespread confidence of Americans for their historic President, reaching 100% in the most enlightened (not to mention cool) districts.
No small credit belongs to Joe Biden´s beartrap-like grasp of foreign conditions and ability to express them when it counts, and to the serenity of a glamorous and elegant first lady who was beloved by all on first sight.
-What Juan Williams might say... if he wasn´t prewired for immediately offended mode.
Where´s that army of GOP lawyers we heard about, the ones poised to charge in where necessary should the election turn flaky?
I´d love a Hollywood ending to this, these same lawyers are lining up there ducks, ready to blow the lid off this before the election is certified. It would tear the country apart, big time. Just what the doctor ordered.
Voter ID won`t solve the problem. Early voting is the problem. To ensure a real count of votes, have to be only one day of voting with electronic monitoring of electors. With today`s technology is not hard to have all precincts connected to a main computer. Once a person is presenting an ID at one precinct, automatically is cleared at all of them.
This is a good place for someone like Trump to put his money where his big mouth is. I have a feeling people in power and those close to them, on both sides, don´t want know. The way SCOTUS would not touch the birth certificate issue with a ten foot pole.
There are voter ID laws in Michigan and Obama won handily. A volunteer where I voted in Michigan actually apologized for having to ask for ID. Of course I assured her it was no problem and I was more than happy to oblige. She then informed me that the law was unfair and even sighted an example of the "unfairness" to me. Needless to say, I was unswayed and voted a straight Republican ticket. I am still annoyed!!
Aside from the vote fraud, he´s unqualified to lead this country and he has proven it thoroughly. Even his puppet masters realize by now that they have a wooden dummy at the ends of those strings, they just don´t care because they "won."
WHAT IS THE RNC DOING ABOUT THIS? Answer: NOTHING!!!! The RNC and their RINO´s have decided that sacrificing Romney´s Presidential WIN is worth it if they can destroy the Conservative control on the Republican Party.
Please quit talking about abolishing early voting. You may as well try to abolish the drive-thru window at restaurants. For people who have full schedules, for people who are physically unable to wait on line for long periods, and for people without easy transportation to the polls, early voting is a godsend. Once people experience it, it becomes almost impossible to make them give it up.
Conservatives are smart. Surely they can figure out a way to preserve early voting while at the same time preventing vote fraud. (And what is keeping Republicans from taking nursing home residents to the polls to do early voting???)
Purple thumbs. Banks & other businesses use fingerprints. Even absentee ballots can have a post it covered spot to add a fingerprint.
When questioned about the St Lucie huge discrepancy in registered voters & votes counted, a FL house member told the news that they´d register the fish under a bridge if they could. This will not stop.
# 29 I always early vote. That doesn´t make it right. Some states start in early October. The debates haven´t even started. I think early voting should be abolished. Absentee ballots should only go to true shut-ins, military and ex-pats. No exit polling should be allowed to be broadcast and no results until every state has finished voting and is counted completely. Media does their best to sway the vote by giving results immediately. Needless to say, voter ID is a must.
Forget about the polling. A statistical sample of actual ballots should be taken and those votes verified with the voter, and voter registration lists. If a large number are fraudulent (95% were wrong in the St Lucie County sample), then the election results should be overturned.
#32, Palin and the Tea Party were told in no uncertain terms that they were not wanted, except to show up and vote as instructed. We will survive Obama, what we may not survive is the cowardice of the American People.
Matter of fact the only guy fighting the fraud, and by the way the sanctity of your vote, is a Tea Party candidate, Allen West.
Anyone still supporting the Republican Establishment is as guilty as they are for not defending your vote. So quit your whining. You demand to be led by people who will not defend your rights. You are the cause of the problem.
#39 makes a very good point. Until we Americans grow whatever it takes to stand up to the voting organizations, we shall continually be nothing but dirt under the feet of the controlling politicians who push the elections any way they wish. And, until that happens, we might as well just lay back and enjoy the dirt we are being dealt. Voter IDs are the only way to go along with the purple thumb and a red "X" on your nose!!
Only in Florida could a dem receive 72,159 more votes than possible. Hey dense repubs this means 100% voted plus 72,159 extra....impossible....and the sad part is the so called repub party did not stand with West. Time for a third party....
BRYAN, Texas- Holiday cheer in Texas has become even sweeter thanks to a giant gingerbread house that has broken a world record for confectionary construction. Coming in at 35.8 million calories and covering an area of 2520 square feet, or nearly the size of a tennis court, the 21-foot high gingerbread house in Bryan, Texas, 90 miles northwest of Houston, has been declared the biggest ever by Guinness World Records. The house, with an edible exterior mounted over a wooden frame, was built by the Traditions Club near Texas A&M University to help raise money for a trauma center at the regional
The White House is scoffing at a new study which shows there’s no public record that President Barack Obama ever met with the top official responsible for developing the Obamacare network. But White House spokesman Jay Carney declined today to cite one example where Obama met with Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the Health and Human Services department. Instead, Carney claimed that “she’s here a lot and meets with the president with regular — with regularity.” “It’s safe to say that Kathleen Sebelius has been one of the more frequent visitors to and attendance of meetings with the president,” Carney said,
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
During a segment of The View Thursday morning, host Barbara Walters expressed her concerns over politicians swearing on a Bible upon taking office, noting the importance of “the separation of church and state” as an American value. The comments came up as the View crew discussed Sen. Mark Pryor‘s (D-AR) new political ad apologizing for his Obamacare support as well as insisting that the Bible should be a guiding presence in politics. After playing the ad, actress Jane Seymour told her hosts that “I think it’s really unfortunate when you have to bring religion into politics. I think religion is
Democrats have justifiably rejoiced in the divisions within the Republican Party which hamper its ability to speak with one voice and act with unity of purpose. The tea party faction within the GOP, once an unalloyed good that propelled the party to electoral victory in 2010, has been more of a headache than a boon ever since. The conservative faction of the Grand Old Party is often credited with robbing the party of electoral victories, torpedoing bipartisan legislative deals, and elevating gaffe-prone voices that force the GOP’s moderates to adopt a perpetual defensive crouch. The temptation for Democrats to partake
NEW YORK- The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in when he famously went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold Friday for nearly $1 million - the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000, including the auction house´s fees, for the sunburst-finish guitar, Christie´s said. Dylan´s legendary performance at the festival in Rhode Island 48 years ago marked his rupture with the folk movement´s old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin´ in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone."
In late October, Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to Israel, not a surprising trip for a potential presidential candidate whose pro-Zionist views are well known. However, less widely known is his role in a breakthrough of sorts in academia and U.S.-Israeli relations. The Jerusalem Post reported: Texas A&M University will open a branch in Nazareth by October 2015 . . . The new institution, to be called the Peace Campus, will promote coexistence for the sake of education with a student population combining Arab, Jewish and foreign students. The faculty will be drawn from Arab, Jewish and international scholars. .
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
