The presidential race is over,
cue the conspiracy theories

Daily Caller, by Theo Caldwell

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/31/2012 5:35:14 AM

This race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly. To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national tracking polls, finding a level at or above 50 percent in many, and closing the necessary gaps in swing states and among demographic groups. Greater evidence can be found, however, in Obama’s sour demeanor and the conduct of his campaign. What a mess.

Here's a little prediction of one of the conspiracy sources: the total number of votes cast for president will be less, much less, than the number of people who voted. Many black voters will turn out to vote for their congressman and other down-ticket offices, but will not vote for president. Unable to bring themselves to vote for Mitt and be first-time Republican voters, they will nonetheless refuse to vote a second time for Obama, the charlatan who fleeced them and abandoned them. It's a simple explanation that the left will refuse to accept.

2, I'd like to think that you are right about the black voters feeling abandoned. Obviously those with their free cell phones don't feel that way, but let us hope that that ignorant cadre is in the minority.

I dunno, I voted early yesterday here in Ohio. Nearly half of the voters waiting in line were black. I didn't see any particular lack of enthusiasm on their part.

Of course, this is a major metro area, very much in the Democrats' pockets. The Republicans didn't even run candidates in many of the down ticket offices.

Given there is a win and a potentially crime ridden lame duck suicide run by obozo
it would be the perfect time for The Donald
to offer the same 5 million dollars again to more whistleblowers in smaller payments!
He'll pay to make public the insane things
obozo will be doing in the last few months of his royal reign, and he'll be the kindly judge of what each horrifying act is worth.
O's own insider staff jumping ship, will gladly go public on obozo dirt. Go Donald !

I'm with #4. I love the conspiracy theories. The drama queens on Facebook will be wild.

Remember the recount in Florida and Bush v. Gore? I love deflating liberal fantasies by reminding my friends that if Gore had carried his own state of Tennessee he would have won the election today be the Former President AlGore.

Rather risky to assume a Romney win at this point. Anything that lets people assume they don't have to crawl over broken glass to get to the voting booths on Tuesday will only help Obama. I sincerely doubt the MFM will be sitting on its corrupt hands between now and voting day, passively awaiting their own defeat. Any "unforeseen event" in the next 7 days must be viewed as a potential trap or trick by the MFM/Obama campaign. Anything.

Sure, there will be some of the usual who try to excuse Obie or blame the nasty cheating uncaring republicans, but I suspect many in the dem hierarchy realize what a disgrace the prez has been.

They've compromised themselves already and aren't likely to go one step further for this loser. He's demonstrated he cares not about them, only himself

That and a landslide should quiet the libs for a good while....those few that remain.

Uh, the storm distorted the election! Uh, it was Sandy who stole victory away from me. Uh, gee, didn't that storm hit the east coast? Isn't that where Romney is from? He caused that storm! Uh, he's so rich he could make that happen. Uh, all those states that were hit by Sandy? Uh, they should be allowed to revote.

(Uh, tell me what else to say, Mr. Soros, sir. Now that I've got everyone's attention. What? Oh, right. Good one, sir.)

Uh, great workers of Solyndra, unite! Uh, before I leave office in a few weeks, uh, I'm gonna sent you one trillion dollars from the US taxpayers for more of those sun power panel things, or whatever it is you didn't make. Uh, you didn't make that!

This is the delicious part..
FTA
"We often see leftist orthodoxy morph into popular convention. This is because, while there are some smart people on the left, it requires almost no thinking to be a liberal. Simply absorb the political sentiments you hear in almost any Hollywood film, or on most any television program or newscast and, presto, you’re in. Repeat these nostrums at school or work and you will be rewarded. Augmented by the emotional satisfaction of the left’s perpetual righteous indignation, this dynamic becomes self-fulfilling and very cozy."

I just hope the outcome is what they say.. I will sleep a little better next Wednesday.

Do not take anything for granted. Vote and work as if we are trailing in the polls. The left would love nothing more than to repress voter turnout. I will not rest easy until the votes are counted and Romney is declared the winner. I am optimistic but also a realist who doesn't trust anything the left says. My plan is to pray, vote and hope that reason and sanity prevail.

I see many Sharpton and Jackson joint news conferences. I see a dangerous lame duck Senate working with a lamer (and more dangerous) duck Obama. Whether there is civil unrest depends on Obama.

At this late date I still don't know. I feel that Romney is going to win the election, but I can't shake the feeling that the Dims will pull something that could change the outcome of that which the majority will have voted. You know. Cheat. That's what they do. Especially in states that are close. As we all here know, these people will go to any lengths to win. And that includes any and all illegal tactics.

I know that some of the despair I feel at times is brought on by the junk that Dims are put out for the express reason to suppress the Republican vote. But, at least for me, it won't work. I've already voted!

I won't believe this election is over and Romney has won until Obama publicly concedes. And right now I feel like I did before the SCOTUS decision on health care. Remember how there was no way it could be held constitutional in a rational world? Well, in a rational world there is no way Obama could win, but clearly that's not where we are.

So do we continue to fight the partisan press for President Romney? Who else can whip them into line but the people? Time for the people to stand and deliver still IMO.

Even with reporters like the dude at Buzzfeed lay in wait for a President Romney to make a gaffe or something they can spin into a gaffe, next president, Romney, is not media shy like GWB and he seems to not mind talking over them to the people. But don't expect him to demonize democrats like the abysmal partisan president we now endure.

Never underestimate the commies ability to "fix" things the way they need them. I will be apprehensive until the results come in November 6th/7th. Nothing is settled until then.

And even then, if the results are good, the task of ridding the WH of the anointed one will be like pulling teeth (no anesthetic, of course). A herculean chore followed by nearly a million other chores to rectify the damage done to our beloved country.

No, I'm not in a merry mood. . .yet!

Wondered if that was to cause the effect that the West coast experiences every election with final results from half the nation posted hours before our polls close. Doesn't change my mind though.

Romney will win. It is God's will. This Nation is at a frightening crossroads. This election is in the hands of God, and he expects US to work through Him. Hold firm in your Faith; vote, and encourage others to vote for Mitt. I am not mistaken that those open to such things can see, and sense, that Mitt Romney is radiating a light of Protection.

I watched MSNBC yesterday and Tingles was practically sobbing into his morning Starbucks toddy. He stated something to the effect that Obama can win now "ONLY if HE (BHO)believes and HOPES (his emphases) he can win." Tingles has the inside dope, no doubt.

The Poetry Police just called and asked me to mention that the Uncle Joe Stalin quote was a tad more like:

"It's not who votes that counts.....
....but rather who counts the votes."

This is not rap music, my friends.
Meter and syllable count do matter.

My uncle is still serving a 7 year sentence for having published a dangling participle....so, do be careful.

As others have said, take nothing for granted. The Dems will stop at nothing. Voting machines in Ohio are now showing Obama when someone votes for Romney.

Why are some polling organizations sticking with predictions of a Democrat turnout of +9% and even higher today? This isn't over yet. Someone might be anticipating massive cheating somewhere.

Many of the above posters have it right....we must watch for any "foolishness" at the polls. Document anything that looks out of line. Take pictures of all those involved. If they object to having their pictures taken, tell 'em you're doing a documentary on fair elections. We've come too far to let these ruffians steal the election from us. We must pay attention and be prepared.

Crawl, run, walk on water or whatever it takes to get to the poles and vote for Romney because we need a BIG majority so Obama can't say that the votes are not counted right. Please people, lets throw him out hard, very hard.

We don't have to worry, as #54, about "the Republican Party" counting the votes. Turns out - we _are_ the party and we _can_ be involved.

I just signed up to be a poll watcher. I am looking forward to the adventure and will report back anything I see here in the blue state of MA. They are sending me not to a poll in my nice suburban town with all its Scott Brown signs, but to nearby Lowell which is one of the blue spots.

No. 30 unfortunately has it right, if Obama loses there will be riots in the streets and not just in the northern and west coast cities either. Everyone has been buying gold as a hedge against a larger depression which will surely come in O's second term. I am not buying gold but ammunition because if he wins again that ammunition will be just as valuable as gold. Not to mention the fact you will need it for personal protection. We are in a no win situation no matter how this election goes.

Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/26/2014 5:12:21 AM     Post Reply
Much to the delight and self-satisfaction of the reality-based community, “Big Data” has been en vogue of late, and to such an extent that it has promised to make hipsters of the terminally uncool. In the space of just a few weeks, both Nate Silver and Ezra Klein have launched brand new websites, which, although imperceptibly different in their core objectives, both promised to overlook the “fundamentally useless” “pundits” that sully the nation’s media and to replace them with the calm explication and modest objectivity that one can only get from the sort of detached, numbers-driven pragmatists who made their names

California’s drought is so severe this year that there is not enough water for salmon to make their annual trip up the Sacramento River to spawn, forcing the state to truck them instead, officials said. The extraordinary effort, however, will have the side effect that the freshly spawned fish will not know where to go when they are ready to make the trip up the river as adults in three years, experts said.

Last week, MRCTV´s Dan Joseph went to American University to give the student body a little general knowledge quiz. When asked if they could name a SINGLE U.S. senator, the students blanked. Also, very few knew that each state has two senators. The guesses were all over the map, with some crediting each state with twelve, thirteen, and five senators. So, when it comes to politics, the students at American University are a little rusty - but, they passed with flying colors when it comes to pop culture.

Harry Reid will refund
campaign for gifts

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will refund his campaign for the purchase of more than $16,000 in holiday gifts that came from his granddaughter’s jewelry company. “I thought it would be nice to give supporters and staff thank-you gifts that had a personal connection and a Searchlight connection, but I have decided to reimburse the campaign for the amount of the expenditure,” Reid said in a Tuesday statement. The refund comes after the Federal Election Commission sent a letter last week to Reid’s campaign, asking for additional information about two payments totaling $16,786.93 to “Ryan Elisabeth” on Reid’s 2013 year-end campaign

The death toll from Saturday´s devastating landslide in Washington is expected to rise to 24 after increasingly desperate rescuers slogging through debris recovered two bodies and believed they had located eight more, the local fire chief said on Tuesday. The official death toll rose to 16 with the discovery of the additional victims as crews searched under drizzly skies for survivors amid fading hopes that anyone could still be plucked alive from the massive pile of mud-soaked rumble. ´Unfortunately we did not find any signs of life today, we didn´t locate anybody alive, so that´s the disappointing part,´ local fire

Open the floodgates? Indiana becomes

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana has become the first of 45 states to opt out of the national education standard known as Common Core, and critics of the controversial K-12 program say the move could "open the floodgates" for others to follow. Growing criticism over costs imposed by the program, as well as fears that by setting a national education standard, the program has already begun dictating curriculum, has made Common Core an increasingly polarizing issue. Although the program has both Republican and Democrat supporters, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence predicted his state will be the first of many to rethink participation. "I

From dust to dust, people and cars come and go, but sometimes the old is reborn … and out of the dust emerges something immaculate. A 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 428 Cobra Jet is a mouthful to say but it will drop any car enthusiasts jaw. This particular garage-find was owned and perfectly preserved by a now-deceased automotive connoisseur. Larry never washed the car for fear of scratching the paintjob or cause even the slightest bit of rust. Yahoo News estimates that the only time the car was ever washed was before delivery.

Since the 1950s, geological reports on the hill that buckled during the weekend in Snohomish County have included pessimistic analyses and the occasional dire prediction. But no language seems more prescient than what appears in a 1999 report filed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, warning of “the potential for a large catastrophic failure.” That report was written by Daniel J. Miller and his wife, Lynne Rodgers Miller. When she saw the news of the mudslide Saturday, she knew right away where the land had given way. Her husband knew, too. “We’ve known it would happen at some point,”

How Republicans Can Win Black Votes
Creators Syndicate, by Thomas Sowell    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/25/2014 12:11:13 PM     Post Reply
Recently former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice added her voice to those who have long been urging the Republican party to reach out to black voters. Not only is that long overdue, what is also long overdue is putting some time — and, above all, some serious thought — into how to go about doing it. Too many Republicans seem to think that the way to “reach out” is to offer blacks and other minorities what the Democrats are offering them. Some have even suggested that the channels to use are organizations like the NAACP and black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson

The State Department purchased two Mitsubishi pick-ups for $50,000 to be used by the border police in Albania. The U.S. government has already bought six L200 Double Cab Mitsubishis for the Albanian Border Police (ABP), and said the two additional vehicles will “fulfill the ABP’s needs.” “The vehicles will be provided to the Albanian Border Police (ABP) under a U.S. Government funded nonproliferation assistance program,” the contract said. “The ABP will deploy the vehicles to the Regional Border Police Directorates in Albania for patrolling, monitoring and controlling its land borders, and to interdict illicit trafficking across those borders.” The two new Mitsubishis will

The mountain of broken down televisions and computer screens caught fire at around 11 o’clock in the morning, sending a thick plume of grey smoke over the tiny Utah town of Parowan. Soon, about ten fire trucks from neighboring towns Paragonah and Brian joined local firefighters on the scene, and authorities shut down an entire mile of Interstate 15. The firefighters extinguished the blaze within a few hours, but the larger danger remains. The March 2 fire was just one symptom of enormous problem that’s spreading across the country.

In the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, several public figures, most notably former Vice President Dick Cheney and Senator Ted Cruz, have called to resurrect a plan to build missile defense sites in Poland and the Czech Republic that President Obama canceled in 2009. They’re on to something. The proposed missile defense sites would have protected the U.S. and Europe from Iranian missiles. They were comprised of 10 large interceptors (think bullets) that were to be placed in Poland – too close, too big and too few to affect the Russian arsenal. Accompanying radar in the Czech Republic would

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree
