Deadline passes in Allen
West-Patrick Murphy recount;
Murphy presumed winner

Election officials missed a deadline Sunday to report results of a two-day recount in GOP Rep. Allen West´s race to remain in Congress, apparently sealing unofficial results giving the win to Democrat Patrick Murphy. St. Lucie County did not meet a noon cutoff to finish processing 37,379 ballots cast early in the District 18 congressional election. Under Florida law, previously submitted results favoring Murphy will be certified unless an emergency exemption is granted by the state. "They did this recount because they weren´t confident in the outcome," said West campaign manager Tim Edson. "Now, because they missed the deadline,

Will we ever get the results of the full recount (assuming they even bothered to finish)? Missing the deadline affects the recount more than anything. I cannot imagine that if West was eventually found to be the winner - even after the deadline- that he would not retain his seat.

I understand from the injunction failure Murphy filed, West is free to bring it into the court system now.

The DNC is laughing at you. I´m sure even they can´t believe how easy it has been since they were caught red handed trying to stuff more paper ballots into machines to double Gore´s vote resulting in the recriminating ´hanging´ chads. Gee, must be those racist Republicans. How about we just go completely nuts in the districts we want to win? Just enough to get us what we want. What will anyone do about it? The answer is NOTHING for 12 years of voter crime.

West is in court trying to get the deadline extended. One precinct had 7 registered voters and recorded 900 votes. Something may be wrong here.

Something, LOTS of things are wrong here. God bless West for standing tall, facing it and fighting. Republicans should be throwing every resource possible behind him. Of course, we know that won´t be forthcoming from our House leadership. Please pray for wise judges to make the right decisions here.

If West had lost the recount does anyone think the deadline would have been allowed to pass? Seems to me someone should be watching the local taxis and precinct captains as they root around in their trunks and basements looking for boxes of newly found absentee ballots

I believe there was voter machine fraud in every state. It is no coincendence that Democrats won everywhere, especially in Ohio and VA, by larger numbers than they had voters in some districts. The machines or Software were definitely compromised. Nobody will ever convince me differently! Not only that, Main definitely has massive voter fraud. Nobody seems interested in pursuing it, so I´m wiping my hands of the whole darn political process. No more money to anyone...ever!

The MSM should not be writing off Col. West at this point and pushing Murphy. This is one reason why:
(This was discovered in a portion of the recount)
Just as background, one precinct has 7 voters registered and yet recorded about 900 votes. That’s a 13,000 percent turnout.

I feel the same way #9. I have given my last dollar to the Republican Party. This year, I sat and watched as my hard earned money was wasted, while I foolishly hoped that it would be used to expose the Liar-In-Chief´s murderous role in Benghazi and his malfeasance for four years. Instead, it was used to tell everyone that he was a "good guy." Bull!! He is a criminal.

And then the Democrats pull off a brazen in-your-face voter fraud that puts the worst president ever back in office, and the Republicans don´t have the courage to even speak about it.

I hope my Georgia Senators are replaced with when their terms are up. The longer a person is in office the less they serve us and the more they serve themselves.

It has taken me a long time, but I have finally realized that ALL of my donations have been wasted.

People are forgetting that there is a Florida Supreme Court ruling already for ignoring this certification deadline. Bush V. Gore.

The Supremes overturned the legislature´s rules to help Gore.

Now it is established law.

1. The Founders were right, very right, in establishing a limited voting privilege of relevant qualifications. There´s never been and is not now a "right to vote."
2. Our electoral process has been hijacked and perverted into an exercise in vast-scale fraud and corruption. [Note how the Dems went after the states´ Secretary of State offices.] The Republicans either shrink from competing or shrink from opposing it.
3. The "Oh, look! A squirrel!" Republican/"conservative" wrong-headed reaction of "we need Hispanics!" reveals a palette of errors. I won´t elaborate here, but see next point, please.
4. Republicans should be going [only slightly-mock] berserk over the criminal election fraud. [So should veterans´ organizations, frankly. Remember, our military swears allegiance to the Constitution.] Scores, if not hundreds, should be on the path to serious jail-time already. This is where the battle is. Not for elections. Not for this or that ethnicity [an offensive idea in itself, period!]. The scale of the battle to retrieve America and the Constitution is what this is about -- and more.

Well? Well?

We need some kind of well-funded national organization to counter Democrap voter fraud.
I would be willing to help fund such an organization. It must be made up of reputable people. We cannot let this massive voter fraud stand. People need to go to jail and face heavy fines. Are we supposed to just go away and mutter, oh well? Who out there actually enforces election fraud laws around the country?

I bet they would have stayed up all night counting if they thought the dems were ahead... how convenient they were afraid of the outcome soooo they quit counting. I´ve heard it all . What kind of voters laws does Florida have? I suggest West move to another state...like Texas.

A group supporting West was communicating last night. They said that at 20 a.m. the Sheriff had them close up the machines and leave. They did not want to, but "they" said that the alarms would come on and they had to stop for the night. (Stupid) The counters were mad and wanted to finish, but they were forced to leave.
This morning they got started on the remaining 300 or so "found" ballots, and at a little after eleven a.m. they were through and checked and ready to upload. They then uploaded the machines/memory cards/whatever to the State. All was fine until the LAST machine would not upload. They could not get it to upload, and the time passed.

Apparently West´s lawyers tried to get some kind of extension, but the state doofuses said that they had to accept the last previous count which was clearly wrong.

If this story is wrong, it is what people were thinking at the time. I don´t know how it has all sorted out, but people need to call the Florida officials and DO SOMETHING. The governor can. CALL HIM.

We have over 300 million people in this country. Only roughly 120 million voted.
Discounting for those under 18 WHERE THE HECK WERE THE REST OF THE VOTERS IN THIS CRITICAL ELECTION? How in the heck could they just not vote?

I´ll tell you what: they are going to get the government they deserve. Unfortunately 60 million of us Romney voters will not. And my America the Beloved no longer exists.

And one last thing: show me a country in the history of the world that created a better Constitution, Bill of Rights and Founding principles as this one. You can´t. So, we should deviate from the Founding Fathers and our Constitution, because why?

Book: White House scrambled

Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
