You know how the overall voter turnout for this week's presidential election was disappointingly down so much over 2008? It's been all over online sites since Tuesday. Well, wait one. The friendly folks over at Public Opinion Strategies have crunched the numbers and come up with an interesting different view. It shows that while this year's total may be down, it's down nowhere near what all the democracy fretters are wringing their hands over. And they may actually end up very close.
Some of those on the Internet who watch voter fraud, and believe me, it's the leftists too, if you read their sites, will cite cases of machines not just changing a vote from (R) to (D), but of "shedding" voters. If 10,000 vote on one machine, the machine might decide not to take some of the ballots with no indication why. Something is seriously wrong in America, and it starts at the local level. It's time for the majority Republican Governors to band together and force a common and rigid voting system and strategy before the 2014 tsunami.
Something is very wrong. If I were going to steal an election, I'd concentrate my efforts where they would be most effective. So look for discrepancies in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Florida. They wouldn't waste much time in Texas, for example, but all their moaning about the EC could well have been a diversion from their attempt to subvert it.
My job has me moving throughout my city, in poor neighborhoods, rich neighborhoods and in between. Voter turnout was high in Republican districts with enthusiasm for making Obama a one term loser. In Poor neighborhoods, many people seemed unaware it was Election Day. Voter Turnout was large, but unenthusiastic and sluggish.
I firmly believe we were robbed.
You heard about the 'flipping' thing with the electronic polls? In PA, there was one Mainstream Media story about it, out of Harrisburg, where a report of an Obama vote flipped to Romney, before the machine was 'Re-calibrated'. I know for a fact there were dozens of reports of Romney/Republican votes flipping the other way - but no mention of those.
This Administration is bogus, fraudulent and traitorous, murderous... I think it's time to consider other options.
Yes, there is something seriously wrong when obama never crossed the 50% threshold in the polls. I believe that there has been massive fraud committed, and our country was stolen on election night. Not in my wildest dreams could I imagine our electorate choosing to be ruled by this kind of evil.
I believe the Rats have finally perfected their fraud in this election. This time it was aimed at the presidency, thier next goal is is Congress. And you know what? They are going to get away with it. We'll be RULED by communists using the title of democrats. America is over. Welcome to Amerika.
Any chance we could go back to using paper ballots? At least there were chads to inspect in 2000. Now, all we have is lines of computer code that can be instructed to go "poof" once election night is over.
I did a take on the percentages of the battleground states and the amount of flips needed to turn the tide. It would take less than three in 100 votes. Introducing a looping algorithm that would flip say, the eleventh, sixteenth and twenty-first then around again would be very difficult to verify, but would shift the tally.
I'm not sure how these machines work entirely, but I believe almost all are supplied by demn leaning companies. Also, I understand that some are controlled by a central server, but not sure this is true.
Many voters would not bother to check their paper if printed out and the chances of catching these flips would be miniscule and considered a fluke as in "flooke" not "fluhk."
It appears there were hundreds, if not thousands of flips caught. Every machine and it's software needs to be seized and scrutinized in depth. Votes won't be confirmed until December 18th. There's time, but is there the will?

Are we supposed to forget all of the huge crowds for Romney Ryan, even in PA? Virginia? Obama had to downsize how many venues because he xouldn't fill them?
We have how many GOP guvs do we have now? Can we cancel early voting? And appoint someone other than entrenched democrats to election boards?
At least in our state where I've worked at the polls, there is a paper tape that is produced by the voting machine and is used in counting the votes. It's not something that just goes ''poof'' with no trace of proof.
if military votes are never mailed or posted; if absentee ballots are never posted; if millions of electronic romney votes do not register...then voter turnout is down...that is the DNC lie and they are sticking to it...and the RNC knew this would happen and DID NOTHING!!!!!!!!!
It is scary to think that the "d" community organizers have truly "voterized" our urban areas which seem to want to be the "in-crowd" who shows up to be "popular". They don't seem to think or care about the country because they all voted for Obama to be "prom-king" again.
I am still in denial that Obama won, at least that he won fair and square. The crowds were for Romney not with Obama. The black voters were not energized this time so that vote should have been way down from 2008. Even for Republicans who weren't crazy about Mitt, they wanted Obama and his Obamacare gone. It is hard for me to accept the outcome unless there was massive fraud, more massive than the usual Demorat fraud, simply due to Obama's unpopularity.
I'm remembering 68% of the population wanted Obamacare gone. What happened?! Also, how many times did you hear Rush (or any other talker) say that NO president had ever been re-elected if their approval rating was below 50. How long since Zippy had even been at 50 - before the debates? This election stinks to high heaven. I'm impatiently awaiting the Republicans to go back to closed primaries, voting on election day and working to shut down motor voter and early voting. It will be a fight because you know all these are used by those liars and cheaters on the other side. Enough already!
I don't think in any poll he got more than 49+ percent nearing the election. Suddenly he gets 52 and 53 percent down the line of battleground states. States that Romney was ahead consistently toward election day like Virginia; 51%, Wisconsin; 53% went for hussein.
It looks like we won´t have much to write for the next three years. The media, which knows all and tells some, has proclaimed Hillary Clinton the 2016 Democrat nominee. Who can argue? Joe the Delaware Gaffer? Nah? Clinton had breakfast with Biden this week to break the news. And lunch with Obama to get their stories straight about the lethal Benghazi screw-up. She assured him she won´t critically distance herself from him for another two years. Some of his campaigners signed on to the Clinton campaign-that´s-pretending-not-to-be--yet. And some senators profess adoration.
Montana´s Attorney General Tim Fox has taken a stand against revealing the identities of concealed weapon permit holders. All 50 states now have laws permitting qualified individuals to own and carry concealed firearms. But emotions have flared over identifying all those as a class. A firestorm of controversy erupted last winter when a suburban New York newspaper, citing the public´s right to know, published the names and addresses of all licensed handgun owners in two counties.
Letterman: So, Anthony Weiner has apologized for this new scandal. He also apologized for the next one. And the next one after that. Fallon: British Royal Birth: Kate Middleton´s baby weighs about eight pounds. Americans asked, ´How much is that in dollars?´ Conan: At their press conference, Anthony Weiner’s wife said she will stand by her husband. Especially when he goes on the computer. Leno: In a GQ interview, VP Joe Biden says he can die a happy man never having been president. You know what? So can we!
Tonight, millions of middle class Americans will go to sleep worried - worried about a job, worried about health care, worried about whether they can ever get ahead. While the bills stack up, many middle class families wonder whether there’s ever going to be enough money left over at the end of the month to save for retirement or college tuition. All the while, an out-of-touch government in Washington continues to abuse its power and put special interests first while hard working Americans are left to pay the bill.
Hi everybody. On Wednesday, I spoke about what we need to do as a country to build a better bargain for the middle class — to make sure everyone who works hard has a chance to get ahead in the 21st century economy. You see, over the past four and a half years, America has fought its way back from the worst recession of our lifetimes. We saved the auto industry, took on a broken health care system and invested in new American technologies to reverse our addiction to foreign oil.
What a difference 18,262 days makes. President Obama interrupted his campaign for somebody to do something about the nation´s economy to meet in the Oval Office with Truong Tan Sang Thursday. He´s the president of Vietnam, the country whose name is seared into the American psyche from the lost war. You may recall the U.S. and Communists argued over what shape their peace-talk table would be in 1968. The two presidents solved that problem yesterday; they didn´t have one. Obama was an infant an that time. So, he´s losing his own guerrilla war now much the same way in Afghanistan.
See anyone you know in that photo above? Maybe the old guy in the blue shirt front row? Notice anything else about this gang? Yup, no hair on any of them. Heads shaved shiny bald. Almost all these guys are Secret Service agents. They´re on the full-time protection detail for former President George H.W. Bush. One of these agents, first name Jon last name withheld, has a two-year-old son named Patrick. He’s in a tough struggle right now with leukemia.
One way to look at President Obama´s speech tour today: President Obama takes his firm commitment to grow the American economy on the road to urge creation of thousands of new jobs to expand the middle-class. [Snip] Another way to look at Obama´s tour: Lord spare us, the nation´s most addicted campaigner begins -- what? -- the 84th call on somebody to do something about the stubbornly stagnant economy to finally create hundreds of thousands of new jobs he promised four years ago. Obama has pivoted to the jobs meme so often he needs new soles on his shoes.
Conan: A sports medicine college has released its annual list of the fittest cities in America. For the fourth year in a row, there aren’t any. Leno: President Obama tells school children his favorite food is broccoli. Hey, it’s one thing to lie to voters. But now kids? C’mon, Mr. President! Letterman: Edward Snowden still living in the Moscow Airport. Workers there are treating him well. Every night they leave a mint on his neck pillow.
Just as the plentiful polemics about the emotional Zimmerman-Martin case began to wane, President Obama re-inserted himself. His 2,156 words were both admirable and puzzling, promising and empty. In terms of his over-promising in 2007-08, Obama´s remarks were wan. almost gratuitous. To the minor extent that Obama’s been a leader, he´s a reluctant one. He´s an exhorter, full of "you-should´s" and infrequent "I will´s." Lots of "I´s" in Obama talk. Not many "We´s." For the first time in our memory Obama´s words seemed heartfelt. We say "seemed" because like many Americans we´ve grown suspicious.
Hi, everybody. Three years ago this weekend, we put in place tough new rules of the road for the financial sector so that irresponsible behavior on the part of the few could never again cause a crisis that harms millions of middle-class families. As part of that reform, we set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the first-ever independent consumer watchdog with one job: to protect families from that sort of behavior. Two years ago, I nominated a man named Rich Cordray, a former attorney general from Ohio, to run this consumer protection bureau. But Republicans in the Senate refused to give
Get out your cellphone. Set the alarm for 58 minutes from now. When it sounds, you´ll know how long it takes Detroit police to answer an emergency 911-call. That once bustling place has the highest violent crime rate of major American cities. Detroit has about 700,000 people, more than 80% black. In the 1950´s it had nearly two million as the nation´s fourth-largest city. Thursday, their city became the largest US municipality to declare bankruptcy. Others will likely follow. And in a disturbing way those festering financial problems locally are likely precursors of a similar simmering national debt dilemma.
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
America is in great shape energy-wise. We have more gas and oil reserves than ever before. Indeed, the United States could shortly become the world’s largest exporter of coal. Our cheaper power rates may bring energy-intensive industry back from Europe and Asia. If America’s small colleges are nearly broke and our public schools failing, nonetheless our blue-chip universities’ math, science, and engineering departments, and professional schools, remain the best in the world. (Snip)In our age, Nobel laureate, exempt Al Gore proved a fraud: the feminist who was accused of groping a woman in crazed sex-poodle fashion;
It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase. It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. The 400 indigenous Inuit inhabitants of Kivalina, who live
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Many low-income families receive government assistance to help them purchase food and housing. Diapers are another story, a new study suggests. In what they are calling the first peer-reviewed study to quantify diaper need, Yale University researchers have found nearly a third of mothers cannot afford to purchase their infants diapers, raising health risks for not only babies but for moms who become stressed over the finances. "Notably absent from the antipoverty efforts targeting families is an essential staple for the health of children, diapers," wrote the researchers, led by Dr. Megan Smith,
Mideast: The sequester has "cost jobs," says President Obama, and "gutted investments in education and science and medical research." But somehow he´s earmarked $500 million for Hamas terrorists. Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization. According to Obama, "it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of" Congress´ legislative restrictions "in
The mother of Trayvon Martin said Monday that she believed Florida’s Stand Your Ground law played a role in her son’s shooting death, but she wasn’t ready to support a boycott of the state for not changing the self-defense law. “The thing about this law is I just think it assisted the person who killed my son to get away with murder,” Sybrina Fulton, the mother of the 17-year-old from Miami Gardens, said at a National Bar Association event in Miami Beach. “I think we have to change these laws so people don’t get
