Media Silent on Allegations that
Cochran Campaign Engaged
in Cash-For-Votes Scheme

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/2/2014 1:58:20 PM

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran´s campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff. But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story. The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine. On July 1, the magazine explained what the penalties might be if Fielder´s allegations prove true. "If true," Forbes wrote, "such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1;

Comments:
The media along with the Republican Establishment can wish this travesty away, but it is not going to go away, nor is it going away unanswered.

The Republican Establishment holds the answer to party unity, but their idea is to just demanding it from the people they have smeared the reputations of. This is no where near the right answer.

Got Revolution?

Remember Mississippi!

True To Vote emailed one of their followers that 4,000 Irregular/Illegal crossover votes have been found and they have hit the Delta Area or looked at the absentee ballots.

Absentee ballots were in greater number for the runoff than for the primary.......wonder what those results will show when examined.

This is so disgusting and is obviously aginst the law. The hubris of establishment Republicans is breathtaking. Vote buying? Really? The media is totally ignoring this but I am not surprised. There is a war in this country against conservative thought and Democrats, Republicans and the media are fully engaged. This debacle in Mississippi, however, is the worst example of political chicanery I have ever witnessed. It doesn´t get worse than vote buying and those horrific racist ads.

#2. It is the worst because it is the only one being covered by anyone. It has been going on in all 50 states for a long time. The only difference is now we have the internet. People all over can follow along and communicate with each other. Lies get called out, facts trump lies.

I am not worrying about the media and I am not worrying about Cochran (he´s going to lose)....but what I AM going to do is make it clear to my Republican Party that IF they do not limit primary voting to Registered Republicans, then I am joining a third party.

Anyone else feel that this is essential ? It IS !!! Absolutely ridiclous to let Democrats swing the primary voting. Stupid. I don´t need any more stupid people to represent me.

There is absolutely NO sensible reason for crossover voting in a primary race. Why should you allow voters from the opposing party to help pick your candidate? Utterly stupid. And I never heard of Republican voters voting in a Dem. primary in any significant numbers to make any difference. This practice must be stopped!

The bamboozle curtain shielding we the citizens from the truth is beginning to slide open: Most of us have lived under the illusion, the republicans are spineless, cowardly wimps, cowering in the shadows from the onslaughts coming from democrats, and their media minions. Now, that doesn´t seem to be the case.

It appears more likely the republicans (from a point dating further back than Senator Trent Lott´s sharing of his leadership role with the democrats), are participating members of a secret cabal, which includes themselves, democrats, and the MSM, to form an onerous ruling class over a once free American citizenry.

#7, many states have no party registration. Texas doesn´t. But, when I vote in a Texas GOP primary, my registration card is stamped. I cannot then vote in a Dem runoff. I don´t see anything wrong with that process.

Maybe because " Reverend " Fielder
turns out to be a known scam artist ?
Not employed at the church where he claimed to be an Associate Pastor...because he´s not a real pastor.
Just someone who calls himself a pastor.
And the Cochran campaign explained how they pay their GOTV volunteers.
This was a GOTV activity , not voting .
Fielder only got $300 for driving volunteers ,
after that he quit.
Oh and he was arrested and charged with fraud in 2006 for some home remodeling scam.
The guy is just not credible .
The whole thing just doesn´t pass the smell test.

agree with #11 and state once more that
limiting a voters right to choose a party or how to cast a legal ballot is a violation of voting laws.
Anyone caught voting illegally should be fined.
If the votes exceed the eligible voting population the party with the excess votes should automatically be nullified and declared losers.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

In a recent New York Times column, Paul Krugman made the assertion that “self-proclaimed libertarians deal with the problem of market failure both by pretending that it doesn’t happen and by imagining government as much worse than it really is.” But suppose we flip that around — substituting “muddle-headed progressives” for “self-proclaimed libertarians” and “government failure” for “market failure.” Compliments to Per Bylund, a research professor at the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, for making the necessary adjustments in a blog post at Mises. org.

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

A shattering new study by two political science professors has found that ordinary Americans have virtually no impact whatsoever on the making of national policy in our country. The analysts found that rich individuals and business-controlled interest groups largely shape policy outcomes in the United States.

Roger Clegg and Hans A. von Spakovsky deserve high praise for debunking the latest GOP brainchild that does nothing to help the party nationally — a Senate resolution encouraging all private-sector employers to adopt the National Football League’s “Rooney Rule” — and illustrating that “conservative” Republicans, too, can be limousine liberals. Five GOP senators — including presidential hopefuls Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Rob Portman — think both commercial and nonprofit enterprises should, per the NFL and Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L.

If the House makes any changes whatsoever to the immigration bill that blew up and died before Speaker John Boehner tried to bring it back to life—and then votes on those changes on Thursday evening or on Friday—it would be a violation of Boehner’s own 72-hour rule. “I proposed a 72-hour minimum time for members to read bills,” Boehner said as House minority leader on May 14, 2009. “I think it’s important that members do have a chance.” "Americans not only expect lawmakers to know what they’re voting on, they deserve to know what’s in these bills as well,” Boehner added on

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

Harry Enten, an analyst with FiveThirtyEight, a political website owned by ESPN, claims he can prove with charts and graphs that Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist are the most unpopular pair to face each other in a governor’s race for at least the last decade. Without even consulting the charts and graphs, few Floridians outside of Scott’s or Crist’s camp would argue with Enten. Both candidates’ favorable/unfavorable ratings are below water. Scott’s ratings have been in the unfavorable range for almost the entire three-years-plus he has been governor. He has mostly done what he ran

There has been a lot said in recent years by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservatives about crony capitalism – or if you prefer, crony socialism, crony government, corporatism – or just plain cronyism. Whatever you call it, this conversation is increasingly vital as government grows and continues to pervert markets by picking winners and losers as a way to obtain wealth for powerful lawmakers and their fund-raisers and friends. This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with
