Florida officials order partial
recount in tight House race between
Rep. West and Democratic challenger Murphy

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/11/2012 5:41:42 AM

Election officials in St. Lucie County will recount early votes cast in the hotly contested race for Florida´s 18th district´s House seat between Tea Party favorite Rep. Allen West and his challenger, Democrat Patrick Murphy. The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board announced late Saturday it had set an “emergency meeting” to start at 7 a.m. Sunday at its headquarters, to “recount all ballots cast during early voting.” The number of early ballots is estimated by officials to be roughly 37,000. West, who has refused to concede the race, is currently trailing Murphy by 2,442 votes,

fta: "Late on Election Night, Congressman West led by 1,700 votes," West for Congress said in a statement. "Following the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections’ decision to recount thousands of early ballots after a technical glitch, the margin shifted by 4,000."

Reminds me of the Al Franken "win" last time. Makes one wonder how many of the close losses followed the same pattern.

Download this PDF (below) of St. Lucie County’s vote data to see with your own eyes the massive fraud in EVERY one of that county’s voting districts.

For example, at the Harbor Ridge Clubhouse polling place:
850 registered voters
1,550 cards cast
182.35% turnout

Read ’em all!

Hat tip to the LDotter yesterday whose Michael Savage Facebook page reference led to that St. Lucie County data trove.

I believe Mitt Romney did NOT lose votes in St. Lucie County, Florida . . . I believe Obama CREATED votes there and nationwide.

I´m on a "smart phone" so I´ll have to look at PDF file later . Voting rights include safeguards to guarantee the integrity of elections. Without voter ID laws, the end of inane motor voter laws and contols on early voting, it is over. The USA is reeling into banana republic ststus .

Of course Obama did not ´participate´ in the first debate.

Of course Obama played hoops on election day instead of campaigning.

Of course Obama doesn´t have to answer questions.

When every thing is FIXED for him, Obama does not have to do any of the above!!

Re #5

I just looked at the PDF file. This is WORSE than the Al Franken election. If election fraud is this blatant, what are we to do?

The democrats have figured out that they wont be seriously challenged and the Fed wont do a thing. And..... the Government is NOT AFRAID of the electorate.

Per a buddy of mine that lives there. He is a staunch tea party member. The ballot was two pages long and each page was recorded as a separate vote. Made sense to him.

Do we need to send money or other help to Alan West? it is high time someone did contest elections from the right side of the campaign.

In Ohio the state legislature has interview a programmer who made a program that could switch votes on the electronic voter machines. Is there a paper paaath in these precincts in Florida/

Some voters in Florida and Ohio said they voted for Romney and the machine printed obama. Might have been used error but should be investigated in lieu of the Ohio legislature findings.

The GOP have long taken the dems chee\ating rather than disillusion the public as in the JFK Daley Chicagoway provided votes that Nixon would not fight.

We the GOP public can take more fight and we can say, everybody does it.

Allen West was a speaker at yesterday´s Muster at the Seal Museum here in Fort Pierce.As he passed the stands people stood up , applauded and cheered.It should have been his day to celebrate his re-election. He was forceful and upbeat but you could feel the tension in crowd.
There is something very wrong here.

Mia Love in Utah would not have been voter fraud unless in some metro areas. Utah haas voter ID laws.

it could have been closet racism as people defined in the first obama win exit polls. people saying one thing in racism.

If it was voter fraud in Utah it was in some top election official throwing it or reporting it falsely. Too bad Mia didn´t demand recount. Matheson is anati-gun and the rurals hate him.

he campaign ad lies against Mia were that she would raise taxes. And he knows to dog whistle to the conservative "independents". the least politically engaged demographic in the nation on the right side of the aisle IMO--Politics are contentious and contention is of the devil so me not being partisan but independent makes me above it all" Yikes! Can´t fix dumb-on-purpose/

Anyway to the "independents´ Matheson, son of a popular governor, dog whistles that he is "conservative, independent, and working for Utah" (as he continually votes democrat liberal most of the time and they being used to supporting leaders never check his votes-that might be too contentious?

When Khrushchev said Americans were gullible,in his "We will bury you" talk, he knew our open heartedness. And if he had politically analyzed the Utahns? LOL.

Utah is not immune to fraud and cheating at some higher levels and democrats are in Salt Lake City where metro power lies. Who knows and who will ever know unless some lower level person finds out and blows the whistle as in the Olympics scandal. Someone righteously indignant person as in truth will out? Truth will out if someone isn´t bought even in most conservative state in the union, where neither national candidate bothers to waste ad money.

#16, then a) why aren´t the numbers almost 2:1 instead of 1.4:1 in St. Lucie County and b) why are lots of FL counties around .5:1 or .6:1????? The numbers don´t support such a meme.

Without a hand count, there is no way that I know to verify if the machines are not shedding or flipping votes. Remember, it´s who counts the vote.

This a simple script that could be put into the counting machines to do whatever the programmer desires or is instructed to do.

Rep. West needs to demand a hand count.

Yesterday, I came up with an idea how the millions who think Obama´s winning is fraudulent can show their displeasure:

On Inauguration day (Jan.20th), fly your American flag but drape black material around it. Or put your empty chair in the yard or on the front porch with a small American flag plus drape black material around it. Get pictures to news outlets. We really need to reinforce that America died with Obama´s re-election. If the Republicans/Conservatives win any battles in Congress, we can have a massive victory celebration. We must show how Americans feel - that we are not behind Obama. This might wear him and the dRats down a bit so that we can build momentum going into 2014 like we did before 2010.

How sad that today is Veteran´s Day. Where is Barry? Will he honor the Vets? If Barry does speak to an assembled group of veterans, I hope they turn their backs on him ala John Kerry in 2004.

Here in Minnesota, there have been two elections that have been decided by recounts. Frankens was one and the other was the current govenor Dayton. In both, the republican candidate had the lead on the initial count by slight margins. After the recount the democrat won. Funny how that works. And Minnesota´s voters turned down a voter ID referendum during the most recent election.

It was no surprise to me to learn that 3 million people vote twice. Once in their northeast liberal homes and once again when they arrive at their winter homes in Florida.
I have spoken to some of these people and they think it´s funny. Haha,they are putting something over on someone.
There is NO database to discover these people and punish them and until we get serious, this will continue.
I wish someone like Mr. West would tackle this problem.

Am I the only one who finds it not believable that the news media - who constantly touted the huge turnouts for early voting and absentee votes and even after all that, voters had to stand in line for three and four hours to cast their votes, and yet the vote was less than 2008? That is not possible...

Considered the huge crowds Romney was drawing and how well he did in the debates, my guess is that Romney votes were destroyed by the thousands. That´s my theory and I´m sticking to it. (Remember the one poll location where people were not allowed to put their own votes through the scanner? That one poll worker at the time had at least 70 finished ballots piled up beside her?)

I think the ´RATS have perpetrated a massive voter fraud on the entire nation to re-elect Øbama. We should look at Rep. West´s recount demand in Florida as a test case. We all know tha ´RATS cheat to win elections. They thought West would just "go away" after the election fraud but he is standing firm. I bet he will win in an honest recount.

Every conservative group in the land needs to deploy to St. Lucie to prevent Col. West from being "Al Frankened" by the Soros Party. It´s far from over and another election could be called for should fraud be uncovered. Now, I ask you, what are the chances of election fraud being involved when Dems are in a tight race??

#33, you are definitely NOT the only one. I said from the beginning, before we even had a nominee, that Zero would get considerably less votes than in 2008 and our nominee, if we united behind him, would get considerably more than McCain. There is no way I believe Romney received LESS votes than McCain! Impossible.

St. Lucie county, the county next to ours, is a Democrat stronghold, especially since the mass immigration from the Greater New York area into Port St. Lucie by machine Democrats from from places like New Jersey, Long Island, Westchester, etc. It has apparently become as incompetently corrupt as that other Democrat stronghold, Palm Beach County, home of the Hanging Chad, and the bungled ballot box stuffing which led to Al Gore´s unexpected defeat instead of his pre-planned victory.

We have an electorate that is too stupid to understand that anyone who objects to voter ID is advocating fraud.

We have an electorate that is too stupid to understand that early voting and ´motor voter´ accommodations are put in place solely to support fraud.

If voting is so unimportant to you that you cannot make arrangements to show up at the polls on the appointed day with proper ID (or properly apply for a verifiable, absentee ballot), you probably shouldn´t vote.

Disheartened sums it up. The conservatives who were working overtime for the Romney campaign have to be just sick. We give all this effort and time and Romney lays down and lets the rats steal the election. At the time we needed leadership from Romney he tosses in the towel. Rep West is a perfect example of the type of politician we need if conservatives want to win any elections in the future.
Amazing, the only demographic Obama couldn´t control their vote or change their ballots was the military overseas. So he defunded their voting programs and didn´t have to worry about them.

Why do we bother with the hassle of having elections?

Why don’t we just give our country’s biased, bought & paid for media a pass? Why don’t we just ignore the rampant voter fraud that exists during virtually every one of our political seasons? Why don’t we allow certain prominent, influential people, who have a great deal of firsthand experience with controlled substances although having no formal training in Pharmacology, to make our decisions for us?

Life could be so much simpler.

The computer programmer testimony in the link is common knowledge among tech people. I would have assumed that both parties have tech people to scrutinize the source code for the computers and safeguards to make sure that this code is the code running during the election. I would suggest that the computer report the checksum of its code every time it runs and the original checksum of the scrutinized and compiled code be widely published in newspapers and on every machine. People with smartphones could snap a photo of this evidence. I would think measures such as these should be a minimum if there is no paper trail where the voter can check his paper vote on the spot when he votes!

Candy Crowley still smothers the CNN chair in spite of her blatant cheating for the 0bamessiah. Chris Matthews still slimes the MSNBC chair after saying that a devastating storm Sandy was a good thing since it helped the 0bamessiah.

I´m still hearing sanctimonious Ron Paul supporters saying how they showed that they were needed and they brushed off the Republican party because they CHEATED RON PAUL! They are pleased with themselves.

If it is true that 141% of the eligible voters in St. Lucie county voted then vote over after comparing the voter rolls to the residents. Jail those that were not residents along with Patrick Murphy on conspiracy to commit fraud. Where are the state police? We know the FBI are up skirt.

First have to prove that West won the election, and the next hurdle is something actually being done about it. Good luck to West.

Can they check the presidential vote in that congressional district for descrepancies?

Republican turnout was lower than 2008 and 2004? I never read anywhere that the Republican party has lost membership. Has it? Has all the blame Bush garbage caused Republican voters to switch parties? I know of former Republican voters that left the Republican party because of the Bush era.

Romney would need 64 additional electoral votes to win the election. You would need to prove voter fraud in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, and Colorado to the tune of 500000 to 600000 votes total. Its possible, but has to be proven. Not sure there is enough voter fraud to flip the entire lection. Would need voter recounts in all four states looking for fraud. Early voting could be fraudulent. Are the states using computerized voting? Look for flipping of Romney votes or Romney votes being dropped. Hope there is a paper trail to compare against the electronic vote.

Regardless, the lib media controled the narrative, and should be held responsible. They hid stories, ambushed Romney during debates, and flat out lied.

Message to Rep. West: should you not get the majority after the recount, I would like to request you move your family to Arkansas to establish residency so in two years you can run for Senator against Mark Pryor. He must be "blanched" in the next election. Please come. We would treat you right.

The Increasing Desperation of Democrats
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/21/2014 5:19:02 AM     Post Reply
Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies
to give workers’ numbers, addresses
to unions before labor elections

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Discovery Channel Cancels Its Terrible Idea
Everest Jump Now That 13 Sherpas Are Dead
Atlantic Wire, by Sara Morrison    Original Article

Following the deadly avalanche that killed at least 13 people, the Discovery Channel has realized that a live jump off the summit of Mount Everest is just a bad, bad plan and has cancelled the special. "In light of the overwhelming tragedy at Mount Everest and out of respect for the families of the fallen, Discovery Channel will not be going forward with Everest Jump Live," the network wrote on its website. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community." Joby Ogwyn was to jump off Everest in a wing suit on May 11. On Friday, while the climbers

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

Obama shuts down debate

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

Oklahoma will charge homeowners

A disturbing story out of the Sooner State this week, noted by Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. Under the terms of a recently passed bill, expected to be signed by Governor Mary Fallin, homeowners who install their own private solar or wind turbine energy resources and sell some of the juice back to energy companies will be paying a fee for the privilege. Utility customers who want to install rooftop solar panels or small wind turbines could face extra charges on their bills after legislation passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday. Senate Bill 1456 passed 83-5 after no debate

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff
and Attitudes Toward the State

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But
