Obama Likely Won Re-Election
Through Election Fraud

Townhall, by Rachel Alexander

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/12/2012 10:26:13 AM

There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800´s. The left wing media predictably did everything it could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama´s race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans on welfare were predisposed to vote for the food stamp president over

Comments:
Likely?? I would say it´s pretty much a given the criminals in the regime stole the election. Gary Johnson helped them along.

There´s little question in my mind that this was fraud. With the electronic voting sans paper, its easier and less traceable than ever before.

Ms. Wood writes a comforting article (we didn´t lose, they stole it), but really only discusses Ohio. Democrats have been stealing Ohio since at least the Nixon/Kennedy election. Even if we accept that Florida, also, was won through vote fraud, those two states switching sides would not have given Romney the victory. Certainly vote fraud is an enormous problem and something must be done (no, I don´t know what), but there are many more factors that carried Obama again. We cannot get past the almost unanimous black vote for him. We also can´t ignore the failure of our own to turn out in the numbers Mitt Romney had been assured he could expect. We told pollsters we were definitely enthusiastic and we were definitely going to vote for Romney and then we stayed home.

It seems to me that a Republican Governor Kasich should have been prepared for the fraud in his Ohio. Why wasn´t he? And what does he intend to do about it in the future?

Ron Paul witholding votes by not throwing support to Mitt shares the blame with the lame Gary Johnson IMO.

The commie left wing of the dems do not go second party and they are winning. What part of Communism don´t the Libertarians like? Looking for or fostering liberty in all the wrong places, guys. First ys gotta win but being hybrids, Libertarians win a half glass not matter who overcomes at the polls. Can´t exactly call it a win with stacked decks.

The fact that fraud happens, and happens easily, is a given. Knowing it, and stopping it, and correcting the results are very different things.

Michael Savage said it immediately: "There are millions of [illegals]. Not only the millions that Obama openly granted amnesty to with the so-called Dream Act, but the millions who are here illegally who have no right to vote.

But because the illegal, illicit Democratic Party fought the states that wanted a strict voter ID requirement in order to vote – we´re the only Western nation that doesn´t require it – that is how they got the election again."

Yes he did win through voter fraud but like the JFK assasination 50 years later we are still wondering if the bullets came from the grassy knoll or the repository.

No, it´s all BO´s now no matter what is proven. You will need pliers to remove him. And in 2016, it may take a revolution cause he ain´t going away anytime soon.

Philadelphia Rs put over 500 new R Table Officials by Court Order [Minority Inspectors and Clerks] in Divisions where none had worked before. [This in addition to the 1000+ election Divisions where R Table workers regularly sit, and numerous Poll Watchers]

Many new Rs officials were not allowed to sit or even be inside Polling Places till the afternoon. The ´GOP Lawyers´ were overwhelmed and often did not respond for 4+ hours to distress calls. [also they reputedly were not prepared to adequately defend the Table Workers]

*A lot of voting fraud can take place in 15 minutes, let alone 4 hours.

*In Philadelphia, people are regularly taken from place to place to vote under phoney [not them] names on the street list. D Table Judges of Election regularly give ´illegal assistance´ inside voting machines. Also D Table workers also sign for absent ´voters´ on the books, and go in and vote for these ´non-present voters´

PS many divisions ran out of the allotted 40 ´Provisional ballots´ intended for voters at a poll, not on the street list.

NOTE
The D Chief Election Commissioner was on NPR and TV speaking out against voter ID, prior to the Judicial ruling against it for this all-important election.

Voter ID will not help id D collusion on the Election Board Table does not enforce it.

Felons in Pa can be Election Judges, and NO D Table officials have [in recent memory] been charged with Election fraud, let alone convicted.

If you go to the DMV in California to get a drivers licence, they electronically register your thumbprint when you check in at the first counter. Every test area you visit after that in the process they again check your print against the original. That stops someone else from taking your eye test, written test or driving test. They wouldn´t have instituted this procedure if there hadn´t been countless problems of cheating the system.

Most medical institutions I go to have a palm print machine which is entered into their computer system. Whenever you check in to one of their facilities, this imprint identifies you and they have your records at hand. It is efficient and doesn´t violate anyone´s so called rights. That is of course unless you think cheating is covered under the criminal bill of rights.

Why then isn´t a system like this instituted for voting. That thumb or palm print should be required when you register to vote. If you register twice or vote more than once you would automatically be disqualified from the current vote count and from ever voting again. Cheating in today´s elections is rampant and it has to stop. Someone should take this to the Supreme Court while there is still a majority of sane people on the court (I´m counting Roberts).

After all, didn´t the Supreme Court affirm a one man one vote rule under a liberal Warren court. Enforce it or go under.

Blah blah blah blah. Unless you can provide hard evidence of it on a scale that affected the outcome, all you are doing is providing self-pitying excuses that get in the way of a cold-blooded analysis of the loss. Might as well suggest that space aliens intervened. It´s about that useful.

We need to start making states accountable for their voter fraud.

Perhaps we need to start talking about disqualifying a state´s electoral votes in a Presidential election if they are found to be doing little to curb voter fraud.

It´s not hard to put a lid on this crap. Voter ID, registration at least 30 days ahead of time, reliable voting methods such as punch cards and writing in ballots, laws that protect election overseers from both parties.

Seriously, when are we going to say enough and really start putting the screws to this?

Phila Rs have overturned a State Senate Election, based on phoney Absentee Ballots, ..... but it´s almost impossible to get a conviction against D Table officials, if the R ´watchdog´ Court Ordered Table Officials are barred from the polls.

Ds in Phila think Voter Fraud is ´no big deal´ and doesn´t really count ...... it´s gone on so long and with the tacit approval of previous DAs etc, that it´s the regular way of doing business.

´Money talks ..... b---t walks´ and unfortunately too many people are ´for sale´.

$10 per polling place for those in the van in 2010 was the rate.

Voter fraud and Gary Johnson? Puh-leeze.

Okay, so there is voter fraud. We know that. The problem is not that Romney lost the popular vote by a little over 2-1/2%. The problem is that Romney lost all but one swing state, resulting in an electoral victory for -0-bama of 332 to 206 – which is not even close. Voter fraud in Ohio and a million votes for Johnson don’t begin to explain 11 million voters who stayed home, or the losses in all of the other swing states.

Simple explanations like “voter fraud” and blaming conservatives prevent the GOP from doing any actual self-assessment. Blaming others for your defeat is petty, whiny and juvenile. We ran the moderate (again) and lost (again) – a loss which included a huge swath of moderates and potential cross-over voters who opted to stay home rather than cast a vote for the “electable” candidate.

I think Ron Paul should take some of that blame !!!

Most of his people stated that they would NOT vote for Mitt, and would just stay home !!

Ron Paul could have come out and stated to his people, " Mitt Romney is not the best candidate that we could ask for, but He is better than having Obama back in. Please vote for Mitt".

BUT, he did not !!! So they stayed home !!

#29 is spot on. The bigger issue is that Romney was a weak candidate fighting an uphill battle. Me too liberalism can´t win over genuine liberalism.

There are a lot of conservative policies that are enormously popular. The GOP needs to find a candidate who can articulate those policies (here´s a hint: someone who doesn´t refer to himself as "severely conservative").

Every time I think back - and heck, even AT the time - to the past few weeks on Fox News´s The Five, Bob Beckel just seemed way overly confident that Obama would win. His attitude, and how he looked at the others, and things he said had me seriously wondering before the election if he knew something.

I recall last summer he was gone for a week or so, and when he came back he was sharper and more caustic in his comments and I mentioned to DH - jokingly! - that it seemed as if Bob had been away at Re-Education Camp. And now I´m thinking HE WAS, and HE DID know.

No proof, of course - this is a lame, factless hunch I have, but I´m convinced of it.

We had illegals being registered to vote out here in Las Vegas by the local Culinary Union (and SEIU), and even the ones who knew they couldn´t vote here were PRESSURED to do so anyway, under threat of losing their jobs in the hotels, casinos and restaurants here.

The Las Vegas tourism industry underbelly.

Consider the vote count and electoral totals. Those broad spans of numbers can mean only one thing: That the libs overdid it to the point it´s painfully obvious. One in fifty vehicles out here had Obama stickers on them, ZERO yard signs, while I saw many for Romney-Ryan.

These are NOT coinkydinks.

But who´ll do anything about it..........?

I was listening to the radio last night (I don´t know the host´s name) but he said that in many of the Republican leaning precincts--where people stood in line for upwards of 3 hours--the final count reflected only 80% to 85% participation.

He also said that 0bama won with over 10 million fewer votes than he got in 2008.

And "well liked" Romney received 3 million fewer votes than "not liked" McCain.

He was implying there is something wrong with those vote totals.

Later, he was discussing the electronic voting machines and said if any part of one´s finger was more than 1/4 inch outside the icon for Romney, the vote recorded for 0bama, that the whole screen--not just the 0bama icon--would register a vote for 0bama.

I don´t know how accurate that radio host´s information is, but coupled with the previous articles about voters complaints that the "screen kept going to 0bama when I tried to vote for Romney" I have to wonder. At least Oklahoma still has paper ballots to mark.

Democrats do not want anything but our death. Anything they do to achieve that is, for them, morally okay. People who would not normally cheat are cheating because they have been convinced we need very badly to be dead or the world will die. It is their religion.

Do not argue reason--it won´t work.
Do not change your behavior--it won´t matter.
Do not appease them--it will only get worse.

Thanks, 31, a lot of people felt that way in 2008. A lot of Jews felt that way as socialist policies were advocated in Germany in the 1930s. Liberals don´t just get mad at their scapegoats; they "get even." The worse things get, the less the ´rats will be held accountable. I guarantee it.

The disparity between the vote tallies and the enthusiasm evidenced in the Chick-fil-A episode, the rally turnouts, and the neck and neck polling in ludicrously over sampled D cohorts, all point to massive fraud.

The electronic machines need to be certified by bonded service companies and the national ID must become law. The sorry excuse that ID will suppress the bozo vote is past its expiry date.

Maybe it is time that some Republicans became democrats. The party machinery at the local level is pretty easy to become involved with. Also my experience with leftist is that they can´t conceive of conservatives being so sneaky. So getting a Republican moles in the democratic establishment might be fairly easy to do.

All it takes is a few people in positions to see the corruption and to record the meetings to blow it open in an off year election or local election when they are not expecting it.

Another possible ploy is in states like California which has the new rule that says there cannot be an unopposed election so that there are now sometimes 2 democrats on the ballot. If a republican were to run as a democrat and say all the leftist things they might could get elected. Once elected they have a forum to drag the demonrats back towards sanity if they couch their arguments right. They could also run as extreme leftist and make a few high profile votes for leftist issues if elected. However, if they lost the person who won the election would be more moderate and not beholding to the far left which is a good thing

Police Unit That Spied
on Muslims Is Disbanded
New York Times, by Matt Apuzzo & Joseph Goldstein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/15/2014 7:23:08 PM     Post Reply
The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said. The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor.

Fox News Channel’s The Five co-host Dana Perino was strongly critical of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who she said was actively inflaming the tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government over his use of public lands. However, she agreed with her co-hosts who said that taking Bundy’s side in this fight was not the right battle to wage. She added that “wishful thinking” is among conservatives’ “worst enemies.” “You’ve got to find candidates who can win and then you don’t have to worry about Harry Reid,” said co-host Greg Gutfeld after lamenting the GOP’s

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit). Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities: Minneapolis-St. Paul. San Francisco. Chicago. Even Madison, Wisconsin. If you are politically liberal and value relatively high levels of income equality, you might live in one of these quintessentially liberal U.S. cities. Yet all four lurk in the bottom half of the 2014 National Urban League’s State of Black America report on income inequality between blacks and whites. Among the many places where black-white income is less skewed are Phoenix, Arizona,

The government says it has stopped one of its illegal activities, according to the Washington Post. The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far

A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Obama administration´s standards for curbing mercury and toxic air pollution from power plants. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected a challenge to the rule, which was completed by the Environmental Protection Agency in 2011 and set the first national limits on air pollution emitted by coal and oil-fired power plants, specifically mercury, arsenic and acid gases. {mosads]Stallion Energy and other industry groups challenged the rule on the grounds that the EPA did not provide proper notice or time to comment on a study conducted by the agency.

On Tax Day, the Republican National Committee announced it is suing the IRS for stonewalling Freedom of Information Act request for documents about the tax agency´s politicized scrutiny of conservative and Tea Party groups. The RNC filed the request on May 21, 2013, in an attempt to expose the documents and emails surrounding agency’s process in handling applications of non-profit organizations such as conservative and Tea Party groups. “We’re filing this suit because the Obama administration has a responsibility to be transparent and accountable to the American people.

Here are a few things missing from President Obama´s statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon: • The word "terrorism." • The word "bombing." • The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs. No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable. Here´s the statement, in full: A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016. According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain. The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary. McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling. Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years: “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
