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.
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.
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.
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.
Where is the Governor on this issue? Is he asleep? Where is the state AG to throw the imcompetent boob out or put her behind bars that is overseeing the election outcome. This state is a total joke.....just like Pennsylvania.
If it´s true one precinct had 9 registered voters and over 900 votes why are the poll workers who were there not brought up on charges for fraud? Also where is the County Clerk who must certify the results?And where are the People?
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?
Florida is beyond corrupt. The dems can´t even do a recount.. they pulled a Franken on West....and the wimpy repubs caved... 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.
Tell me this- 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?
Those who think they are going to take from this country will rue the day they eliminated the goose that laid the golden egg...they have no idea what is coming down the pike...a substantially lower standard of living for starters, imho...
This looks like just one more election stolen by the Democrats. This Patrick Murphy is truly disgusting. He is more interested in winning than an honest count of the ballots. One more Obama rubberstamp is just one more nail in America´s coffin.
Either President Obama needs a new speechwriter, or he needs a new set of economic policies. Actually, he needs both. Can anyone think of a more boring, banal, irrelevant, or stale speech than the one he gave this Thursday in Washington DC? The speech was allegedly on the economy, but more likely it was to divert attention from the Obamacare catastrophe. Whatever the motive, his idea that the defining challenge of our time is to reduce income inequality is completely wrong. In truth, the defining challenge is to restore more rapid economic growth, create substantially more jobs, and significantly reduce
President Obama on Thursday said that Republicans should be “embarrassed” that they have not done more on Capitol Hill, blaming them for Washington gridlock. “They´ve got to be embarrassed,” the president said in an interview on MSNBC’s "Hardball with Chris Matthews." “Because the truth of the matter is that they´ve now been in charge of the House of Representatives, one branch of, or one chamber in one branch of government, for a couple of years now and they just don´t have a lot to show for it.” Obama said that congressional Republicans were too fearful of offending their conservative base to
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
On Thursday, in the aftermath of South African iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s death at age 95, President Obama’s White House account tweeted a tribute to Mandela – a picture of Obama in Mandela’s Robben Island prison cell, along with a quote from Obama about Mandela: (Photo/Tweet) Even in paying tribute to a historic figure, President Obama couldn’t help but make it about him.
As President Obama wrapped up his conversation with Chris Matthews at American University, he took a swipe at the partisan media for dividing the country and making compromise more difficult. Obama said being the Commander-in-Chief for so long “makes you humbler, as opposed to cockier,” and compared himself to Sisyphus, rolling the boulder up the hill for eternity with little success. He spoke of how enthusiastic young people encourage him and give him confidence, only for the media to take that enthusiasm and use it to divide people. “The American people are good and they are decent, and yes, sometimes
Chris Matthews got his long-desired wish on Thursday, an exclusive interview with Barack Obama. The Hardball anchor didn´t exactly live up to the title of his show, wondering about Republican efforts to "make it difficult for minorities to vote" and questioning who was better, Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden? Talking to the President at American University, Matthews read a question from Twitter: "What can we do to stop the GOP, the Republicans, from rigging the states, rigging the votes, state by state, to disenfranchise voters and destroy our democracy?" The host added, "Thirty six states right now led by Republican
Wednesday night, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews announced that his interview with the president, which is scheduled for today, gave him "the Christmas Eve excitement." Outside the left-wing fever swamp of MSNBC, Matthews is perhaps most famous to the American people for his 2008 comment about how an Obama speech put a "thrill up his leg." In his latest campaign effort to rehabilitate his sinking presidency and health care law, President Obama will sit down with Matthews this afternoon in front of a group of college students. The audience is no accident. Obama desperately needs healthy Millennials to be stupid
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
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
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. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
