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.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors
New York Times, by Andrew Pollack    Original Article

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,
then laments gridlock

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain
Among First to Abandon Ship

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Those ‘rogue’ agents

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Even Hillary Clinton Isn’t Sure What

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 4:23:43 AM     Post Reply
Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

What would a Mitch

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
