The Myth of the Missing
Three Million Republicans

American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/12/2012 7:26:04 AM

A score of people this past week have asked me about the three million Republicans allegedly "missing" at the polls this year. For starters, if the Washington Post is to be believed, Mitt Romney received 1.3 million fewer votes than John McCain did in 2008, not 3 million. For the record, Obama received 7.5 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008. More than 1.1 million of the Republican votes were "lost" in California. It is not that California Republicans turned against Romney. His percentage of the vote was higher than McCain´s in 2008.

What will the Republican leadership do to combat this fraud? Nothing. What did they do about the patently biased debate moderators? Nothing; if they had, fat-mouth Fats Crawley would not have been there.

Hate to say it but maybe Romney´s religion was a big reason he lost.The left used a lot of underhanded ways to attack it without Obama´s fingerprints on it.

Anyone who was too prissy to vote for Mitt because of his religion is a traitor, pure and simple.

I do not give a rat´s patoot about a candidate´s religion, provided they can prove they support and will defend my country.

Did Jack´s article get truncated? There is no conclusion to his article - he´s way too good a writer to just leave us hanging.

If the short article is it, I do think he has a point about states where Republicans are so outnumbered. However, New York state has some Republican Representatives as does California. Just remember Darrell Issa is from California and Peter King is from New York. I can´t imagine they would have been returned to Congress but people in their Districts voted for Obama - that doesn´t make sense.

What makes the most sense is that the voting machines were programmed to flip just so many votes so as to not set off any alarm bells. Sorry, you are not going to convince me that the criminals - Valerie Jarrett, Axelrod, Plouff, Messina, and Cutter, didn´t have a maniacal master plan. First they had to show the polls as being very close and could go either way. When it went to Obama, no one would think too much about it - just that Romney fought the good fight but couldn´t convince enough voters to toss out Obama.

I think a lot of registered republicans went independent in recent years after getting fed up with the party. Also, they could lose more after this election no small part to the robo calls that hit my phone 8-10 times a day.

I live in a totally Democrat enclave. I often feel my trip to the polls is completely wasted, because I am outnumbered 20 to 1.

When I voted early this year, I noticed that nearly half of all the voters in line were black -- no shortage of enthusiasm here.

The dozens of political phone calls I received each day were enough to make me want to unplug my land-line (as several of my friends have). There is something about receiving a plethora of such calls that tends to dull any interest in voting.

While I was eventually convinced to vote for Mr. Romney (after repeatedly swearing I would not), there may well have been many potential Republican voters who simply were unable to pull the lever for a New England moderate.

Lotsa reasons -- none of them good...

Until the Repubs decide to fix the voter fraud and the States go through the voter list and toss out the fake ones.. nothing will change. The States are the ones who have to fix the dang system and we need to get this early voting under control. Laziness should not be rewarded.. We get a big push about 90 days before the next election to make them look like they are doing something, but it is always too little too late with the Repubs. Now they want to drag out the sack clothes and ashes...Fools..

The government plantation´s foundation was laid by Woodrow Wilson. The frame was erected by FDR. Clinton shingled the roof and Obama is providing the furnishings. To be fair, Bush I and II hung some drywall.

It is not up to anyone else to fix the fraud. Why are we waiting on government and particularly political parties to fix this? It is our election process. Get your voter list, look up your property and tax rolls. Cross reference them, submit challenges to the ones who registered to vacant land, pay taxes but do not reside in the district, have died, are registered multiple times. Someone with the skills/talent could design and implement a process for cross referencing across districts and states to prevent the casting of multiple votes by one person. Read your states election law, volunteer to work the polls, be a poll watcher, run for secretary of state, board of elections, etc. Identify and work to change those areas of your state election law to remove the opportunity for fraud, i.e. early voting. Get your friends and neighbors registered. Educate them. Pick something, anything and move on it. Quit waiting for someone else to do it.

There are maps that break down the red and green by smaller areas. It is just that a large city can outnumber a whole rural region and turn a whole state reliably democrat. There is something about people who flock into cities because they are less self reliant and inclined to depend on others. Population density co-relates with political attitudes.

I don´t think Romney´s loss in Ohio and Pennsylvania was due to his Mormonism at all. I am a Christian who is very clear about the doctrines of my faith, but my husband and I had voting day circled and went to the polls together to vote for the straight Republican ticket here in PA. And, the results of voter turnout in our rural county, where we had poll watchers, was the one of the highest on record for Republican voters. I don´t believe we were an anomaly in PA.

I think this author was describing why we can write off CA and even NY, but that the results in OH and PA are suspect. And yes, it seems as though the article was truncated. Better check to be sure he is OK.

I did not get even one robo call here in Kentucky. I saw no TV commercials. If Romney had one to one interviews anywhere on TV, I must have missed it. Did anybody come to my community? If they did, I missed it. If I hadn´t been making the effort to follow the election on FOX, I wouldn´t have known it was happening. This includes the primary. Combine this with people getting TOO many robocalls, add in the vote fraud and the leftwing litany in the popular media and you´ve got your 3 million.

Romney wasn´t my first choice and I DID vote even though I´m outnumbered 6 to 1 in my precinct. But I´m pretty motivated. I must confess I sat out the primary, though. What was the point?

I don´t buy the anti-Mormom idea either. Romney did better than McCain in almost every state (I think NJ and NY were the only states where ´O´ did better. In some counties in Oklahoma, not exactly a Mormom stronghold, Romney got 90% of the vote.

There are articles all over the internet about how easy it is to change electronic votes and then have self-destruction of the code that did the changing. The Democrats didn´t have to do it in every district - just in certain key areas of the swing states.

All the tweaking of message and improvement of get-out-the-vote systems isn´t going to fix the problem if they can just switch our votes as soon as they are cast. And the evidence is, just from the fact that Obama can´t fill a venue anymore, they can manufacture exactly as many votes as they need to win any election they choose.

Voter Fraud

The election was stolen

Stop buying into the msm mantra that we need to reach out hispanics, asians, etc etc etc.

R votes were discarded or went unscanned in republican districts in Florida, Coloraado, and in Ohio the scam was that absentee ballos were sent to every single registered voter.

Think about the chaos that ensued and you will see where the election was lost.

Kasich was asleep at the wheel in Ohio.

The Democrat coalition of blacks, Hispanics, Asians, gays, illegals, and single women will be tough to beat even if we succeed in ferreting out all the voter fraud (including the abuse of early voting and vote by mail). Women in particular seem to be locked in on the primacy of lady parts issues above everything else. Big government has become their baby daddy. And when it comes to government, for them, size matters.

I absolutely agree with those posters that say electronic voting can be changed without anyone knowing it. Just program every 1,000th vote let´s say, to change to Obama in those key swing states. And we saw evidence of that with people voting early saying they voted for Romney but it changed to Obama.

As long as the MSM couldn´t care less about voter fraud because it happens to Republicans, and as long as our Republican so-called "leadership" is unwilling to confront this issue head on for fear of being labeled crazies, then we will have more coups as we have seen in this election. I believe more than ever this election was stolen. Every pollster was wrong? Seasoned, experienced pollsters ALL used the wrong premises about voter turnout? All pollsters whose reputations and livelihoods are at stake, made these same mistakes? I don´t think so. This election was stolen, pure and simple.

I have bad news for all the ladies voting with their lady parts. Because of the Grizwold v Connecticut decision the right to Abortion is locked in and Romney could not have changed that even if he wanted to - and he never showed any inclination to do so. You elected a closet Muslim who caters to CAIR a muslim group which has the declared purpose of replacing the constitution with Sharia Law. Do you think that will never happen? Obama is shredding the constitution every day and having the CAIR gang over for Ramadan parties all the time. I would rate this far more likely than any restriction on "reproductive freedom" If you keep this up your lady parts may well be subjected to FGM...which is not a pleasant experience. You can read all about it in the book "Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. I have no sympathy for an Obama supporter when this happens but I do have sympathy for many others who will suffer the same consequences despite their heroic efforts to prevent this tragedy.

As Newt points out in one of his excellent You Tube pieces:" You can send $5,000.00 from L.A. to Bangkok without fear of it being stolen with just a few keystrokes and a security code".

The Vote could be equally secure but the left won´t let it happen and the right is too limp wristed to fight about it.

I just checked. MSNBC called the election for Obama at 8:15 - because of the Ohio vote. So 8:15 p.m. in Ohio is 7:15 in the CST states, 6:15 further west and in California, it was 5:15, yet it was called for Obama. Am I alone in trying to figure this out!

We live in Cincinnati OH. Most of the southwest corner of OH went to Romney except for Cincy itself and the neighborhoods closest to it. We had friends who worked at the polls. No picture ID is required. If you have a photo, fine, if not, an electric bill will do. A tall, well dressed black man came in with no photo ID. No license? No ID? But his electric bill with the name Veronica was produced as ID and he had to be allowed to vote. No one can convince me that the early voting, the busloads of Somali residents, from Columbus, all citizens? - not speaking English, who were bussed in to vote did not constitute voter fraud.

The nominee demonstrated in the primaries an inability to connect with voters in big ten states.

Here´s a hint: in 2008, the person independent voters in those states connected with wasn´t McCain.

And yet, where the Tea party was strongest, in Midwest battle ground states, the RNC chose to act as if 2010 never happened.

Money and organization win primaries; sincere conservative convictions well articulated and presented win independents.

I totally agree about those electronic touch screens. How can anyone audit them after the fact, there´s nothing but digital code. 111010010 101010100 101010101 is not an audit trail! Electronic scanned ballot images are much more accurate and can be audited. That is what my district used in upstate NY. Simple, clean, and there is a trail.

Far to easy to fool electronic voting. #37 is right. With no audit trail except to tally the number of people who signed the registry against the number of whole ballots cast, I could easily enter a program to ignore votes for Romney without the need to bump up Obeyme´s votes. It would just look like I didn´t vote for President. Who could tell?

One thing we may need to guard against is the use of the "stab in the back" mythology, which the Germans adopted to explain their defeat in WWI. We can, if not careful, be beguiled into thinking this because the theft theory provides a degree of comfort. I believe the bitter truth is that we are living in a tattooed, unthinking and illiterate culture, which values ignorance under the guise of sophistication, and indifference as the hip cynicism for these folks.

If they could control the results with undetectable massive voter fraud in every swing state -- then why can´t they do it in 2014 and 2016. If they can control the results from now on -- why is no one saying they have overthrown-the-country? Shh. They have overthrown the country. Shh.

Glad to see Allen West fighting the fraud. Just take Ohio as an example. The lines were around the block in small communities like Defiance and Van Wert. The exit polls were huge for Romney. Then the results came back and surprise but the President had precincts that exits were dominate the other way. Something is really evil.

Lucianne´s caption under the MUST READ is exactly right. In NC where I live, I personally know of people whose votes via machine registered as votes for Obama when they voted for Romney. One friend said she tried 3x on the same machine with a poll-attendant watching as her vote flipped to Obama. She said the poll attendant said to "use another machine while we check this one out". Right.

Multiply that all over the country, prepared in advance thanks to ACORN workers and other since O´s last election and you have a simple answer to why Romney lost. Too many voters simply assumed the machine cast their vote for Romney when it did no such thing.

OPEN LETTER TO GOP: Why don´t you ask people who had similar experiences to contact you? Or contact the ACLJ or some other heavy-duty advocacy group? Do we just allow this election to get stolen?

Something is starting to smell really, really bad. It´s just too outlandish that we lost in those States when the stats were going our way.

And then, ponder this: From the moment O was elected in ´08, preparations to steal the ´12 election began. That´s a LOT of time to fix machines, ballots, etc.

We´ve been had. Big-time.

Voter fraud has been around since voting. Our last free election was, I believe, 2004. Spongebob voting in 08´ was just a preview to this election. When I heard that Romney votes were being flipped for Obama in early voting, I knew we were in deep trouble.

What I don´t understand is why Romney and the GOP did NOT implement a strategy beforehand to put some daylight in those voting areas where fraud did the most damage. They could have done something, they had the resources and the power to stop this. Brietbart was everywhere...why didn´t they use him? Where were the hidden cameras, the attorneys? the police?
The republic did their duty...everyone turned out and WITH enthusiasm. There is no explanation other than fraud.

That the ignorant and greedy wanted more of Obama, there is no doubt they voted. But I do not for one second believe they outnumbered those who´s lives and livelihoods were at stake.

Maybe for the first time she was actually telling us the truth.

The evidence of fraud should be presented to the members of the Electoral College. If the Romney pledged members withhold their vote, that would show the invalidity of this fraudulent election. I doubt that leftist members give a damn, however, not all are pledged to vote for 0.

The Congress still has to validate the election. For starters, Allen West should stand in Congress and object to Congress validating the Electoral College vote and present the Congress with evidence of the fraud in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and other states.

The very determined Allen West has noticed irregularities in the Florida vote, especially in one of his counties. I hope he stays on this like a junkyard dog. I put absolutely nothing beyond the Dems and Obama Inc to do to win an election. Obama´s electoral history shows his preference to eliminate opponents before his elections, but if his work needs to be done during the election, so be it, IMO. Ironically, in Russia of all places, on that hot mike, he spoke so confidently to Medvedev of his coming victory. He knew he had it in the bag.

#49 (cont.)
We must return to... Election Day!
- Paper ballots
- No machines
- Minimal, absolutely necessary absentee voting
- No Early Voting. Early voting allows the Dems to work it like Card Check, working their lists, turning disinterested and uniformed voters into actual voters.

I am never troubled by low voter turn out which often happens in local elections. I figure those with the knowledge and the interest are voting.

This doesn´t make sense. The Republican Party/Conservatives were highly, highly motivated. Look at the difference in the crowds between huge Romney rallies in Ohio and Penn. vs small 0bama rallies, even with the likes of Stevie Wonder, in the waning days of the campaign. The college age kids were bummed out and showed no motivation to go vote much less vote for 0bama.

Now we are told that the Republican turn out was less than in 2008? No f´ing way. This is screwy.

Then I read that something like 100+ precincts in Ohio were >99% for 0bama and I heard there were similar results in Philadelphia. No fraud here. /s

I believe the country should have a unified method of voting. Whichever system is least prone to fraud should be refined and adopted nation wide. Many seem to think the paper ballot with its paper trail is the right way to go.
I also beleive the precious gift of the vote is wasted on a large percentage of woefully ignorant people. Why not mandate a simple intelligence test of political awareness?
It is essential that a voter speaks and understands English.
Voter ID is imperative.
No same day voter registration or provisional voting allowed. Registration cut off date a minimum of six weeks before election day.
No early voting anywhere except from our servicemen and women posted abroad.
Lastly I believe the Republican party is no longer worthy of being the alternative to the Socialists.They need to get out of the way and let the reformers take the reins.

fta:
results in several states do raise eyebrows, most notably Ohio and Pennsylvania. Romney received nearly 100,000 fewer votes than McCain in the former and 35,000 fewer votes in the latter. In all the other battleground states, Romney improved...

That is enough to launch a Federal investigation into these two states & Florida. Somebody needs to step up with a class-action law suit. Who will do it? Will our House of Representatives do it for us? Somebody -- who? How? Lets git ´er done!

I´ve been pointing to the fraud since Black Wednesday. Here´s a quick way to jumpstart the investigation: Donald Trump can offer a hefty reward for evidence of voter fraud. The Donald gets himself back in the headlines and we get the confirmation we need. Win/win.

Here in Chicago -- many complaints were heard about the machine changing the vote from President Romney to obama. I had to double check mine....

Soooooooooo -- it will follow that obama won by fraud. Surprise -- surprise....

It doesn´t make sense. In 2008 I walked in and voted. This election I waited 3 1/2 hours to vote.

You voted for one reason: you either hated Zippy or loved him. It had nothing to do with religion. No one in my area said anything about Mitt being a Mormon.

The real question is why is the Rep Party not up in arms about possible voter fraud ?

They do not count the absentee ballots unless the margin is less than the number absentee ballots in the opinion of they.

To amplify the sentiments of poster #46, and similar posts, I´m forced to paraphrase a classic observation attributed to Sir Edmund Burke: all that is needed for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.

The machines we use don´t even show who you voted for. It is also a waste of paper, the old voting machines were tamper resistant and easy to use. This is fraud institutionalized...

When they ´lost´ thousands of military ballots the GOPutzes did nothing.

When proof of voter registration fraud was surfacing all over the country the GOPutzes did nothing.

When Repub poll watchers were intimidated, threatened, kicked out the GOPutzes did nothing.

When voting machines flipped Romney votes to 0bama the GOPutzes did nothing.

Finally when the inevitable happened last Tuesday, the GOPutzes conceded and began pandering, compromising and caving to 0bama´s total agenda.

We´re doomed.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio. The Cadillac tax that goes into effect in a few years, he

Now that she has left CBS News, Sharyl Attkisson is revealing all sorts of interesting facts about the way news is shaped by ideologues. Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources (transcript) Attkisson: “Media Matters, as my understanding, is a far left blog group that I think holds itself out to be sort of an independent watchdog group. And yes, they clearly targeted me at some point. They used to work with me on stories and tried to help me produce my stories, and at some point” (emphasis added) Well, well, well. So the Soros-funded group works with mainstream media journalists on

USAID documents cite Hillary

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

designed to un-do mandatory

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
