Vote was astronomical for
Obama in some Philadelphia wards

Philadelphia Inquirer, by Miriam Hill, Jonathan Lai*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/8/2012 5:46:53 PM

Some Philadelphia neighborhoods outdid themselves in Tuesday's presidential election. In a city where President Obama received more than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or more. Those wards, many with large African American populations, also swung heavily for Obama over John McCain in 2008. But the difficult economy seemed destined to dampen that enthusiasm four years later. Not to worry. Ward leaders and voters said they were just as motivated this time.

I have trouble believing ANYONE can get 99% of a precinct's vote, even if they are all family members.

Has anyone checked those machines?

It could have been 200% or 300% and it would make no difference. Nothing will be done about it. I'm not convinced that Romney really lost this race. But I do know that America did.

The angry, bitter response says it all:

FTA - If they believe there was a corruption of the process, then go to court and challenge it. Show the people of Pennsylvania, Hughes said. Beyond that, shut up.

From the description of the wards, I can see Obama getting 100% of the vote. That would never happen in an all white ward, though. I wonder why not?

Stolen elections are the Chicago way. Look up the presidential election of 1960. JFK plus a bunch of Chicago thugs stole it from Richard Nixon.

Rush is right, it's all about free stuff. The Obama Phone Lady with her screechy voice stated it perfectly. "Keep Obama in president..."

I'm convinced that in Pittsburgh and Philly, (and in many other places around the country) almost every registered voter, whether dead or alive and whether they made it to the polls or not, had a ballot counted for Obama. If they were too dead, too lazy or otherwise unable to get to the polling place, I'm sure someone took care of casting an Obama ballot for them. Proving it, or even getting anyone interested in investigating it, is another matter. On somewhat related topic, has anyone seen the email with the comparison pictures of Hiroshima and Detroit now, 67 years after the A-bomb. The worst long term city destruction occurs in welfare supported and badly managed urban areas - none of which exists in Japan. Hiroshima is a beautiful, vibrant city now. Detroit today looks far too much like the Hiroshima of 67 years ago. As Dems take over urban areas, we can expect every city to look like Detroit eventually. We seem to be trying hard to make the entire USA look like cold war East Berlin. It won't be long before all the makers escape from the USA - just like those who tried to escape from East Germany.

Philadelphia is where Republican poll watchers were 'ejected' from polling places for a couple of hours till a judge told everyone they could go back. Voter fraud in Philly happens every election and the rest of the state shrugs it's shoulders and the RNC gives up long before any election. No guts, no imagination, but what is the point when the democrats are so brazen they ship busloads of voters into Ohio to swing critical counties? If you wonder how a small band of Brownshirts took over Germany, read the comments.

#16, politics recognizes no laws. Just as the winners in a war write the history books. The so-called 'genteel' conservatives better educate themselves on what the Republic's founders had to say about tyrannical governments and democracies (essentially the same thing) and develop some intestinal fortitude right quick. They need to learn to play for keeps.

#21, so we are going to add to the burden every black person endures when they understand history and cults and break away from democrats? Not only do they get incredible scorn from everyone around them, we are going to confirm the racists by calling all black people vile names? How do you beat a racist by being a racist? As far as I'm concerned I'd be happy to let the democrat party try and explain it's long, murderous history of black racism, I don't need to confirm the liars on the the left who project their sins onto the right. Done with this stupid argument.

This might be an interesting question that some daring reporter might put to the might O.
"Given the long-held belief that there was a significant amount of voter fraud - like 99% turnout that not even Communist dictators get - what do you propose to ensure there is no voter fraud in the future?

Philadelphia is a funny place. It's not all orchestrated inside the city. Suburb folks come in and protect them.

The response we get when we call them on it is prove it -- show us any evidence of abuse.

The fact is, we don't have it, and even if we did, there is no one that will listen.

Allen West has petitioned a judge to seize voting machines and ballots. If this proves the counts are faulty or fraudulent, then there should be a mass seizure of every machine in the country.

There has been only one notable case of a machine flipping a vote away from obama, but hundreds, maybe thousands away from Romney.

To alter an algorithm is simple. Machines in some battleground states often were not validated before the election. Hmmmmm!!! They should all be impounded.

It would be simple to write a script that would flip every eleventh or whatever vote making it very difficult to duplicate and identify. Don't think for a minute this could not and probably did happen... Often!

Also, three million fewer angry white voters? Again Hmmmmm!!!

I've driven through cities in the DRC, Africa where 13 yr olds are carrying AK47s; in Nairobi Kenya where the site of a white man can spark an out of control riot. It was alway frightening. Once I got off the wrong exit of the PA turnpike and ended up in one of those Philly wards and it looked like an armed camp of East Berlin after the fall. Everyone had bars on windows & doors, gang graffitti every where, drungs openly sold on corners and hostile stares. Sadly this is the America that the Democrats allowed to emerge, even after Johnson's "Great Society" and this is the America that is in power now! God have mercy on our nation.

I remember in 2000 when Donna Brazile was Al Gore's campaign manager. She was asked if PA just might go Republican and her answer was. "No problem. If it looks close, we can always get the votes in Philly". (I've tried to source the quote, but confess I can't. But I do remember it clearly.)

President Barack Obama hits Chicago on Wednesday for two jumbo priced fundraisers to benefit the Democratic National Committee. Obama hosts a roundtable—I am told keyed towards business executives—at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse downtown where about 25 folks are expected; the tab is up to $32,400. The Obama roundtable is hosted by Mesirow Financial Chairman and CEO Richard Price. Later, Obama is the headliner at a dinner for about 55—donating up to $10,000--at the Lincoln Park home of Craig Freedman and Grace Tsao-Wu, who is an Obama major donor and fund-raiser.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tops a national poll of female candidates that Americans want to run for president. The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls last week which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president. Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote. In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If she does

Here is a seeming paradox of American life. One the one hand, there is a broad social-science correlation between religious faith and various social goods — health and happiness, upward mobility, social trust, charitable work and civic participation. Yet at the same time, some of the most religious areas of the country — the Bible Belt, the deepest South — struggle mightily with poverty, poor health, political corruption and social disarray. Part of this paradox can be resolved by looking at nonreligious variables like race. But part of it reflects an important fact about religion in America: The social goods

Boston firefighters gathered Thursday at Logan Airport to meet the family of a fallen comrade in an emotional show of respect and gratitude. Massachusetts Port Authority Fire Department members waited silently outside the gate of a flight escorting Lt. Edward Walsh’s mother. He was one of two firefighters who died earlier in the week while trying to tame a blaze in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood. The picture was taken by Max Widmer as he waited to board his plane and the firemen waited for the JetBlue flight that carried her to Beantown free of charge, according to WCVB.

LOS ANGELES- Inspired by a former president, Shirley Jones can´t wait to jump into her birthday plans. The Oscar-winning actress and singer says she´ll take her very first skydive on Monday - her 80th birthday. "That´s something I wanted to do all my life," Jones said Friday. The inspiration to try comes from former President George H.W. Bush´s jumps on several birthdays, including when he turned 85 in 2009. "When I saw him do it I thought, `Wow, if he can do this, I can,´" Jones said. Jones, who starred in TV´s "The Partridge Family" in the 1970s, gained fame with

Television star Tina Fey was hit with a $79,000 judgment by the New York State Workers Compensation Board in court documents posted this week in Manhattan court, but the “Bossypants” author insisted Friday that she is up to date with her payments to the state. Court papers show that the state sent Fey a bill in February indicating that she owed the $79,000 for a period covering Nov. 20, 2012 through Feb. 2, 2014. The bill was sent to 125 W. 55 St. An aide said that is the address of Fey’s accountant, who moved out of those offices six years

This weekend is the dedication of the newest memorial on the State Capitol grounds--the Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The bronze statues were finished just a few weeks ago at a foundry in Bastrop. We were there for the final pours along with some others who have a vested interest. Man has been working with bronze for thousands of years and most of those at the Heart of Texas Foundry hope this bronze will last thousands of years. It´s to remember the 3,417 Texas vets who did not come back from the Vietnam conflict. This final pouring culminates an 11 year

(Tweet, Photographs) If the unidentified aircraft photographed over Amarillo turns out to be a new U.S. spy plane, it wouldn´t be the first time. Aviation Week & Space Technology journalist Bill Sweetman has posted photos taken March 10 by two veteran sky watchers, Steve Douglass and Dean Muskett. In his blog post of March 28, Sweetman writes that he and two Aviation Week editors agree that the photos depict "something real." In other words, these pictures aren´t easily explained away by reports of known military flights or the work of someone who got carried away with Photoshop. So what can aviation

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

´Noah´ Review: Brilliantly Sinister

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
