The Obama/Democrat prism
Remember Bush v Gore? Imagine an election result (2012) that the Democrats, especially Obamas’ turning up negatively through a shift rightward rejecting their failed policies. Imagine an Obama war chest of close to a billion dollars and an army of election law attorney’s fanning across the country after a defeat to “contest” the results ala Bus v Gore.
Conspiracy theory? Preposterous?
If individual States cannot certify results then what is the result -- Obama remaining in the White House? Can you say “Occupy White House”!
Do you think this is such a radical idea for a man and his party that cut their teeth utilizing radical tactics? ACORN, Bill Ayers, OWS, Rev. Jeremiah Wright are just a few examples of Obama friends and advisors seeking radical, violent if necessary, change.
On December 5, 2011 Ed Pilkington (thegardian in NY) ran an article titled “NAACP warns black and Hispanic Americans could lose right to vote”. In this article it was reported that “the NAACP has petitioned the UN high commissioner on human rights of what it contends is a conscious attempt to “block the vote” on the part of state legislatures across the US.”
It must be reminded that the US has, in the recent past (Bush Administration), withdrawn/boycotted this Council until the decision by Obama to rejoin in 2009.
We know, for example, Jesse Jackson, Jr., stated his belief that Obama “suspend the Constitution” and pass the Jobs bill. We also know that Democrat Governor Bev Purdue (NC) called for suspending Congressional elections until the economy recovers only to recant with “I was joking”.
We also know that the people Obama is affiliated with look to Saul Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals” as a roadmap to bring the American system down from within. The Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm the system by making the government live up to its promises/laws was the catalyst for the New York bankruptcy.
It was people like Bill Ayers and the Rathke brothers who began their activism in “Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)” and the “Weather Underground” offshoot to go on to found ACORN and SEIU.
Obama and his “Motor voter” efforts with ACORN saw the rise of rampant voter fraud charges and convictions after the 2008 elections. It was many of these abuses and electioneering that caused many States to adopt more stringent voter registration laws to combat them.
The NAACP’s petition of the UN HRC, goes to the heart of this effort and have gone to the international body for what, relief? According to the December 5 article the NAACP contend that - “voting rights are being whittled down at every stage of the electoral process. First of all, the registration of new voters is being impeded in several states by moves to block voter registration drives that have historically proved to be an important way of bringing black and Hispanic people to the poll.”
The article goes on to say - “more than 5 million Americans are denied the right to vote on grounds that they were convicted of a felony, 4 million of whom have fully completed their sentence and almost half of whom are black or Hispanic.”
Again, the article goes on to say – “Other measures have reduced the ease of early voting, a convenience that is disproportionately heavily used by African-Americans. Even more importantly, 34 states have introduced a requirement that voters carry photo ID cards on the day of the election itself.”
Finally, the NAACP points to Texas where the law passed disallowing college ID as a form of ID but a concealed carry permit (handgun) is. This argument is frivolous as stringent background checks are required to get a handgun permit whereas the college campus admission policies are not so stringent, wouldn’t you think?
The suppression of voter turnout is a red herring issue as the very States that the NAACP cite as conspiratorially racist in its aims were themselves victims of ACORN and their tactics. For instance, they cite Florida, but in 2008 election officials in Brevard County prosecutors were investigating more than 23 suspected registrations from ACORN while the states Division of Elections were also investigating complaints in Orange county.
In 2009 11 ACORN workers were accused of forging applications in Miami-Dade county. Law enforcement found 197 of 260 ACORN applications did not match living people.
In North Carolina in 2008 many applications had similar or identical names, but with different addresses or dates of birth.
In New Mexico in 2008 Prosecutors investigated more than 1,100 registrations deemed fraudulent. Many were also duplicated names and slightly altered personal information.
In Missouri in 2008 registrations were rejected due to duplicated and false information.
In Michigan in 2008, a large amount of fraudulent applications were turned over the US Attorney for investigation.
In Indiana in 2008 Election officials threw out registrations after they were found identical (handwriting) and from dead voters not to mention a “fast food restaurant” as a name.
In Ohio in 2008 ACORN gave residents cigarettes and cash for registration. Many voters admitted to registering more than a dozen times with one individual admitting to registering 72 times.
In Pennsylvania in 2008 Election officials threw out over 57,000 registrations for fraudulent signatures with vacant lots listed as their address. That same year an ACORN worker was sentenced to 23 months in prison identity theft and tampering records while a second ACORN workers posted a $10,000 bond to await trial.
In Pennsylvania in 2009 7 ACORN workers were indicted for falsifying voter registration with 6 of the 7 also indicted for registering under a “quota” system.
In Texas in 2008 over 10,000 registrations were thrown out as invalid including fraudulent address and personal information.
In Washington in 2007 3 ACORN workers pleaded guilty (and 4 more charged) for the worst case of voter fraud in the States history.
In Wisconsin in 2008, ACORN used “felons” to register voters in violation of State rules and 2 have been charged with voter fraud felonies.
The incredible divisiveness of Obama and the Democrats only make this scenario more plausible than not. Obama needs not to win the election, he only needs to occupy the White House after all “possession is 9/10ths of the law”!
With the election looming and Obama’s incredible credibility gap with the voting public due to failed promises, distortions and outright falsehoods it is easy to see the path he is embarking upon. He desperately wants to distance himself from his record and deeds and has literally blamed everything and everyone else for his and his party’s failures.
Shortly on the heels of the NAACP petition to the UN HRC we now learn through Eric Holder the reality of the supposition above. Holder, in a speech given at the LBJ Library, solidified the aims of Democrats and Obama to change the Voters Rights Act, specifically Section 5 to bring the US “into the 21st century.
No longer is Holder content with arming violent Mexican cartels, he aims to give them the right to vote through automation. The issue is certainly going to divide the American public who see this attempt for what it is – giving an edge to Democrats and Obama just in time for the election, if successful.
We do not have to look any further as this is blatant, illegal and unconstitutional from every angle. If we chose to examine motivations then we must also examine credibility too. As the “top cop” for the nation Holder has proven to be the liberal lap dog who doesn’t look to the law for guidance especially along “voter suppression or voter intimidation” lines. He has proven to be anything other than applying the law equitably as the “Black Panther” dismissal has shown.
The arrogance of Holder as he tries to appear the champion by channeling LBJ in his speech is, well, speechless. For instance, in the text of his speech he states –“Today, as Attorney General, I have the privilege – and solemn duty – of enforcing this law, and the other civil rights reforms that President Johnson championed. This work is among the Justice Department’s most important priorities. And our efforts honor the generations of Americans who have taken extraordinary risks, and willingly confronted hatred, bias, and ignorance – as well as billy clubs and fire hoses, bullets and bombs – to ensure their children, and all American citizens, would have the chance to participate in the work of their government. The right to vote is not only the cornerstone of our system of government – it is the lifeblood of our democracy. An no force has proved more powerful – or more integral to the success of the great American experiment – than efforts to expand the franchise.”
Again, referencing the Black Panther 2008 voter intimidation case that Holder dismissed (after it was won) shows the arrogance of the hypocrisy. Though his speech referenced the dangers that African-Americans faced in the turbulent times prior to the passage of the Voters Rights Act – his reference to “confronting billy clubs” is especially poignant as the Black Panthers blocked a Philadelphia Polling Station while armed with billy clubs. I assume that Holder meant that “to ensure their children, and all American Citizens” does not apply to African Americans who blatantly violate the very laws designed to ensure their childrens rights.
Is Holder lying or is his “frame of mind” just so that he actually believes what he is saying?
