McDaniel Has A Legal Path
To Victory, Says Consultant

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:trapper, 6/27/2014 6:51:37 AM

Sen. Thad Cochran’s second-round primary victory may be nullified if Chris McDaniel’s team can show the margin of victory was less than the number of people who wrongly voted in both Democratic and GOP primaries. “It’s tedious, but it is a simple task [to check and] Mississippi state law is very clear on this,” said Bill Pascoe, a political consultant for Independent Women’s Voice, which backed McDaniel. Last July, the mayoral election for the state’s fourth largest city, Hattiesburg, was nullified after the losing candidate showed that the 37-vote margin of victory was smaller than the pool of suspect absentee

Comments:
Too bad President Romney didn´t embark on a systematic effort to root out the illegal votes in the key states he needed, particularly in precincts where there were more votes cast than registered voters.

Hey, voting twice is business as usual.

Based on numbers involved, margin and irregularities spot checked so far, I´d say McDaniel has an excellent chance of overturning this desperate and ugly attempt by the elites to steal this one.

Let´s be precise because the reporter wasn´t. This is not about people who voted twice. This is about people who took a Democrat ballot on the June 3rd primary and then took a Republican ballot on the June 24th runoff. That is illegal and the election judges and the officials as the county boards of election should not have allowed it to happen, either with absentee ballots or at the precincts on the day of the runoff.

Every state that has a run off system has a laws that a voter´s declaration of party affiliation for the original primary is binding on any subsequent run-off.

I don´t believe in open primaries. That loophole should be eliminated. The only eexcuse for them might be that Independents have no place to go but let them join a Party or too bad.

If this is not cleared up then the suspicion will be left. Everyone will think Cochran was elected due to criminal activity. That his enemies decided he was the weakest foe and they would break the law rather than face McDaniel.
Unfortunately it won´t matter because nobody will remember Cochran until he dies or retires, unless you have your hand on his wallet... my wallet.

I don´t believe McDaniel will ever get his proof. Either because there were plenty of blacks who didn´t bother to vote in their Democrat primary and so their vote is legal or the system will be corrupt enough to keep Cochran in. The interesting thing is how does Cochran think he´s going to win in November. Won´t a big chunk of his runoff voters switch back to voting for the Democrat? Didn´t he even think about that? He might have ensured his loss anyway.

But since the vote itself is anonymous and unknown, there is no way to know who the person (who voted in the Dem primary and Repub primary runoff) voted for in the runoff. Yes, his vote was illegal, but how can it automatically be subtracted from Cochran´s total votes? Maybe he voted for McNeill in the runoff.

Your vote is secret, but they keep a record of whether you requested a Democratic or Republican ballot--they have that information available.

I#12, I understand they have a record of anyone who voted in the Dem primary and then in the Repub runoff. The runoff vote of a person who did that is illegal and cannot count in the runoff totals. BUT....there is no way to know who that person voted for in the runoff since actual votes are anonymous. That illegal vote could have been for Cochran OR McNeill. You can´t assume that every single illegal vote was cast for Cochran and subtract all these votes for Cochran´s total. No court would allow that.

The voters are numbered and the identifier is a bar code--forget secret voting......not anymore. They have a Dem primary log book and a Rep log book and in Hines County alone (BTW, Cochran´s sister-in-law is on the election commission) shows about 1,000 votes in the Dem primary and then switched to the Rep. run-off which they say in MS is ILLEGAL.

There are copies of the Dem Log pages on line already.

So, we will see what happens.

Does anyone know why McDaniel hasn´t issued a formal, legal challenge? Lots of rumors and stories and speculation, but nothing seems to be official.

Misspelling on Medill Diploma
Gives Students Last Laugh
Chicago Tribune, by Kim Geiger    Original Article
Posted By: trapper- 6/23/2014 7:41:36 PM     Post Reply
Some graduates of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism were handed a parting reminder of the school’s notorious “Medill F” when they received their diplomas over the weekend. About 30 of the more than 250 diplomas that were given out at Saturday’s two graduation ceremonies had a spelling error, a school official confirmed to the Tribune on Sunday. The error struck some students as ironic, given the school’s tradition, known as the "Medill F," of giving a failing grade to an assignment with a factual error such as a misspelling.

There are serious worries in Texas and beyond over the current flood of illegal immigrants and the diseases they are carrying into the United States. ABC 15 reports from the southern border: U.S. Border Patrol agents are worried that what´s coming over into the U.S. could harm everyone. This time the focus is not on the women and children that are crossing over in droves. Agents are worrying about a viral outbreak. “We are sending people everywhere. The average person doesn´t know what´s going on down here,” said Border Patrol agent and Rio Grande Valley Union representative Chris Cabrera.

The University of Texas slogan is "What starts here changes the world." I have to admit—I kinda like it. "What starts here changes the world."

New Jersey To Ban .22 Rifles?

New Jersey’s legislature has enacted a gun control measure that would ban the most common .22 rifles that have been in use for generations. The Truth About Guns, via InstaPundit, has the story: The gun ban that has gone to New Jersey Governor Christie for signature has been described as a “gun magazine restriction“, but it bans numerous common sport and hunting rifles. The ban has no exemption for rifles with fixed magazines, including most common .22 rimfire rifles that are used for sport and small game hunting…and almost never used in crimes.

They had a dream. For almost a hundred years now, the famed academic-artistic-and-punditry industrial complex has dreamed of a government run by their kind of people (i.e., nature’s noblemen), whose intelligence, wit, and refined sensibilities would bring us a heaven on earth. Their keen intellects would cut through the clutter as mere mortals’ couldn’t. They would lift up the wretched, oppressed by cruel forces. Above all, they would counter the greed of the merchants, the limited views of the business community, and the ignorance of the conformist and dim middle class.

Although nobody is speaking on the record, it appears as though a veteran science writer and editor at the New York Times has lost his job because he published a book about genetics and sub-Saharan Africans. No topic is more sensitive than genetic questions regarding the anomalous statistical phenomena regarding sub-Saharan Africans, at home and in the diaspora. Chris Reed of the Daily Caller: Nicholas Wade, a British-born science reporter and editor for more than 30 years with The New York Times, is no longer with the newspaper — just days after the release of his latest book, in which

Why Westernized Muslims
Become ´Radicalized´
American Thinker, by Raymond Ibrahim    Original Article
Posted By: trapper- 4/17/2014 2:00:22 PM     Post Reply
A new Danish statistical study finds that “Muslims [are] 218 percent more criminal in second generation than first.” While some of these crimes are clearly related to Islam – such as attacks on Muslim apostates to Christianity – others, such as rampant theft against non-Muslims, would appear banal, until one realizes that even robbery and plunder are justified by Islamic doctrine – as one U.K. Muslim cleric once clearly said. The interesting question here is why second-generation Muslims, who are presumably more Westernized than their Muslim parents, are also more “radical.”

In 2011 Barack Obama led an allied military intervention in Libya without consulting the US Congress. Last August, after the sarin attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, he was ready to launch an allied air strike, this time to punish the Syrian government for allegedly crossing the ‘red line’ he had set in 2012 on the use of chemical weapons.? Then with less than two days to go before the planned strike, he announced that he would seek congressional approval for the intervention. The strike was postponed as Congress prepared for hearings, and subsequently cancelled when Obama accepted Assad’s

The Commerce Department announced Friday that it will give the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), an international nonprofit group, control over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to connect to each other.

One of the least reported angles to the Crimea story is the plight of Russia´s Tatars - an ethnic group that was forcibly removed from their original home in the Crimea following World War II for supposedly collaborating with the Nazis. Only in the last few years have the Tatars been allowed to return. So you will forgive them for not quite trusting the Russians to keep their word.

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

Maybe we’ve been conned. There’s a growing recognition that Barack Obama is an incompetent poser, working out of his depth, and his administration is the gang that can’t shoot straight. There’s a lot of evidence to support that belief. Everything he touches becomes a bloody mess, like crushed bones and bits of flesh caught in the tracks of a tank slicing through a rank of soldiers (or civilians). Iraq, Syria, Egypt — all gone, as prospects for countries with a prosperous and democratic future. The “reset” with Russia, meant to ensure that America and the replacement republic of the old

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

Two spirit is an Aboriginal term which means having both feminine and masculine spirits.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

Higher education is no longer just for kids in the top quarter or the top half of the class. College is for everyone," First lady Michelle Obama told a gathering of school counselors in Florida on Tuesday. "Every student in this country needs some higher education, whether that´s two-year degree, a four-year degree, or professional training of some sort." Mrs. Obama went to the annual meeting of the American School Counselor Association in Florida to thank counselors for taking on a demanding job without the resources necessary to meet the challenges. They, in turn, made her an honorary school counselor.
