Update: Tanks in the streets as
Venezuelan electoral council
declares Hugo Chavez victory

Daily Caller, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/8/2012 12:56:58 AM

Update 10:50 p.m.: According to the Associated Press, Venezuela’s electoral council has declared that Hugo Chavez beat Henriques Capriles in Sunday’s presidential election with about 54 percent of the vote, despite exit polls showing otherwise. Venezuela Twitter users have claimed Chavez’s victory was wrought with election fraud, and that the socialist incumbent president sent tanks into the streets of his country as those exit poll reports showed him losing. A picture of the tanks surfaced on Twitter Sunday evening. (Snip) A Spanish news outlet reported earlier on Sunday that exit polls showed Capriles defeated the socialist president by a narrow

Comments:
Uh, so who would have expected Massive Fraud? Pretty much anybody with a brain. Pre-election polls and estimates didn't show that Chavez could win by anywhere near 10 points. Just like the Marxists say: One man, One vote, One time. All other elections are phony.

Ooh, #1, it's frightening to think so. I believe as long as our leaders refuse to stop, prosecute or execute any sort of justice upon Democrats then it isn't crazy to think it could happen someday.

The last news I had read before going to sleep last night was that the polls had remained open because of a long line. I'll bet like before the very late votes ALL were for Chavez, and that the late surge represented 30% of the total vote.

#1, #3 and others--gun shops just might see a surge in sales this week. A shortage in ammunition wouldn't surprise me at all. Too many people are aware of the tricks that can be pulled and the high likelihood of something unexpected happening.

#17--your comment reminds me: local ordinances here prevent political signs being put out until 30 days before the election. We drove around yesterday and were tickled to see many Romney/Ryan and Tim Scott signs adorning front yards in our neighborhood and the one next door. They suddenly sprang up overnight, like mushrooms! Not a one for Obama, although I suspect there will be one or two later.

This is dire in Venezuela, but it's not here, yet. I don't want to get all squirrelly because Chavez cheated his way into another ''term''.

Our military may well keep its collective oath to the Constitution and to defend US, and not to the person. But there are more and more Affirmative Action enlistees, actual embedded Black Panthers wouldn't surprise me, and upper ranks are being populated with perfumed princes who 'yessir' their way up. These young men and women have been brought up to believe that the government does everything for them. And when 'one of theirs' tells them We the People are causing trouble and need to be quelled, they will unthinkingly obey. What that number or percentage is, I don't know.

Regardless of how many obey their consciences instead and refuse to march on us, they will still have all the big toys.

The biggest hope we have is the difference between Venezuela and America....WE are AMERICANS.

Chavez may have 'won' but there was nothing free or fair about it. 80% turnout? I find that hard to believe, given the discontent in that country. It just goes to show how hard it is to dislodge a dictator. The only country that managed to do it was Chile, which had a Pinochet. If Chile didn't have a Pinochet, they'd still be fighting this sort of Marxism by the ballot box. How's Chile doing these days since Pinochet? And who will be the Venezuelan Pinochet?

This is what worries me about our close polls. Since they are surely being manipulated I fear it is to avoid any "disturbance" after the election when there is fraud. Zero wins --as possible by the close polls-- so we accept it?

The only goal for Alinsky-ites is power and revolution. They don't quite know what to do then so it becomes totalitarianism everywhere they have tried this. If we have voter fraud, there will be no prosecution by AG Holder. We had better plan for a landslide. This man said it was his last election. Could he mean it is the last election for this nation now that he has "fundamentally changed it"? His wife said "Barack won't let you go back to the way you were" What did they openly say and no one listened?

Clever of Chavez to hold an "election", instead of crudely just declaring himself "President for Life." For a Commie dictator, he has some finesse, or a sardonic sense of humor, or something. The tanks are a nice touch.

The Democratic Party here test-markets their electoral frauds overseas in other elections.

Think I'm crazy?

Two years before the hanging chad fraud in Florida, South Africa amazingly had the same problem, with the same complaints, lawsuits and media-managed push to invalidate election results based on what was perceived to be incomplete paper punches.

Exact.

Then it showed up here.

Also, I hear that Obama is going to start a war with Iran if he thinks he is going to loose this election. He would kill every American in this country with radiation, I guess, just to get his way. Of course, he and his buddies will find a way to be protected. People in Venezuela are helpless just like we will be if Obama wants this bad enough and I think he does, just like Chavez.

The announcement that a Marxist/Communist/Stalinist/Community Organizing thug cheated during an' election is akin do announcing that bears poop in the woods. And, as Bill Ayers stated, 25 to 30 million will not go along with the 'revolution' and will have to be eliminated.

Let me get this straight: if exit polls were 55:45 for the opposition guy, then interpolating/extrapolation the fear of commie/fascist chavez would all 10 more points to the score - meaning 65:35 for Capriles.
But what do you expect from the dictator? Fairness, honesty, conscience?...
He is the man of steel, like hitler, stalin, castro and kim il sung!
Btw, stalin was winning with the score 99.9999% and no opposition! chavez is generous!

NO, I'm buying into the idea that Obozo would try something like this here in America. One very good reason. We have something that virtually no other country on earth has, including Venezuela. We have a 2nd amendment. And remember, there are a lot more guns in the hands of private citizens in this country that what the military has. And most of these private citizens are not going to allow their freedoms be taken away from them. As far as the military is concerned, I'm not worried about them. Far too many of them are patriots and understand that part of not having to obey an illegal order. Voter fraud, however, is another matter entirely. All of us need to keep our vigilance at a high level during the election.

Chavez may have won - recall that our founding fathers were always wary of democracy's tendency to turn into rule by the urban mobs.

That's what we would have to worry about if it were not for things like the electoral college. Of course, open-borders could bring it about as we are seeing destructive political decisions made in previously 'sane' places like CA.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects. (Snip) Obama will also win three of Maine's four electoral votes, Fox News projects. It is unclear where the state's fourth electoral vote will fall.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

There´s no two ways about it: the Dodge Dart isn´t selling. Just a year after its debut -- a debut heralded loudly throughout the automotive world -- the Dart´s sales were pretty dismal. Many of you vented about the compact model, complaining about things as varied as its so-so looks to its iffy ancestor. (Snip) Trucks and SUVs were a different story. On that front, sales were up 30 percent for the year, and March rang in a whopping 34 percent above March 2013, thanks in part to strong performances by the Ram pickup, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the
