Florida just can’t seem to count votes properly. After the embarrassing “hanging chad” debacle of the 2000 presidential election, similar games are now being played in the contest between Republican Rep. Allen West and Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy over the 18th Congressional District seat. Mr. Murphy claims 160,328 votes to Mr. West’s 157,872, but the GOP is questioning the integrity of the vote count, particularly in St. Lucie County. On election night, Mr. West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2,000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots,
Comments: This will enrage you. And just think. This is one city in one state. You know the criminality was rampant all over this country during this election. It sickens me to my core.
I agree with you OP. There is no way on this EARTH I will ever believe this Election was not corrupted by the Chicago-thuggery of obama and his minions. obama got 10,000,000 LESS votes than in 2008 and yet, Mitt Romney got 3,000,000 LESS votes than John McCain? That is absolute nonsense. Bless Allen West for having the intestinal fortitude to at least stand up to the garbage coming out of Florida, as usual. It IS sickening.
FTA: ''On election night, Mr. West had maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2,000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections inexplicably “recounted” thousands of early ballots, resulting in an awfully convenient 4,400-vote shift in favor of the challenger.''
In a ''fair'' Universe, since this is a Federal election, the FBI should immediately step in and take control of the ballots and their count. Oh, a little too much partying with paid female ''guests'' that night to 0bama celebrations by the Secret Service.
This is actually the epitome of the last 40+ years of trying to get racial equality. A conservative black candidate is shunned by his people in Amerika, while a pathetic liberal Illinois Congressman [Jackson], who's been hiding in rehab at the Mayo Clinic for more than five months, easily gets reelected. The Berlin Wall may have come down in my lifetime, but racial bigotry, by their own people, won't. [Being visibly ''Hispanic,'' I see it in the Spanish culture & my own family, as well].
It would be feasible - even easy- to look at county-by-county vote changes from 2008-2010-2012 and, say, the voting machine type used in those counties.
The thing is that an analysis so simple, if the elites thought that it were to find something amiss, would never be allowed to happen.

I agree with #1. I watched the Florida and Virginia votes come in from the very begining. Both states were very close, but Romney was ahead most of the night. What got my attention was that when most of the counties had 100 percent of the vote counted. The democrat districts had only counted 30 to 40% of the ballots. Seems to me, the dems waited to see how many votes they needed to win, and "presto".... 0bama´s vote expanded....and expanded....until they had enough of a margin to win going away.
Well said 1 - we all figured Obama would get maybe 9 -10 million less votes than 08, and that Mitt would get 5-10 million more than McCain got. That´s what everything was telling us. Our eyes, the common sense, everything. West´ discoveries could be the start of something big, very big.
All of the appearance of voter fraud seems to have occurred in swing states.....not the blue states nor the red states that no well in hades would have voted for the "won". Hmmmm.......strange. Check out the numbers of voters against total voting age of Colorado voters. How often does a county get 140%, 110% and etc. voting when the state average is about 41%. Only 10 counties checked so far. Can you say "VOTER FRAUD"???? Machine malfunctions------swing states! Were the machines hacked?
It feels like we´re living in Venezuela under Hugo Chavez. How did we allow a handful of thugs to get so cocky about their ability to commit voter fraud and get away with it, that they personally go on TV every week and chuckle and mug for the cameras as they lie to us?
Axelrod and Rove topping the list. If what I now think is true, they should both hang at opposite ends of the same rope from the same limb.
Yes voter fraud happened. You knew it would. It likely cost the election. Will anything be done about it? no. Will the MSM report it. No. We needed to come out in such numbers to crush the fraud. We did not. We have lost America. She is gone for good. You should feel as sick as you do.
9 million republican votes dissapear. The media say that their painfully obvious rigged polls were right. Dems say that Ron Paul supporters stayed home. Mathmatical improbabilities abound. I predict that holder´s DOJ will very soon step in to shut down any effort to investigate.
They don´t even care if you know anymore. Even if you have evidence of fraud, who could you apply to for redress? Issa? Issa is still working on the last term´s scandals.
Republicans never took voter fraud seriously - since JFK´s Dad bought the Presidency for him. It´s only gotten worse. Democrats nearly succeeded again in 2000. It´s hopeless because Republicans refuse to face this. We have who knows how many Democrats in this country who now hold office, and have for years, all due to voter fraud.
Yes #14, the republicans do nothing, they don´t even acknowledge that the fraud exists. There is nothing I can do and I´m going to do my best to try not to be miserable and to survive. My health depends on it, I cannot live like this anymore. Fighting every day with no vehicle by which to succeed. The deck is stacked. I fold. I´m "going dark".
Apparently we have to "hit the wall" before people wake up. I will pray to God every day for his protection from this madness and try to stay off the radar, low profile for me.
Allen West is an almost singlular ray of hope in the vast cesspool that we find ourselves in.
I´ve been saying all along, something is not right. Rasmussen and Gallup have consistently been right on in their polling during last few races, now they are very wrong...Give me a break. That is why people are walking around shell shocked because it just does not add up! Dems cheated, somehow Soros and Axelrod cheated. Remember in PA, Repub pollster judges were not let into voting places until judge ordered it? What were the Dems doing for those three to four hours?
I don´t get the low turnout for Romney either. His crowds were huge; people were going to crawl over broken glass to vote for him (that is, against Obama). The NRA was fired up. Fewer votes than for McCain? When we all said we were going to hold our noses to vote for McCain? When our vice presidential candidate (whom I loved and still love!) was villified as an idiot? When we knew something about how bad Obama was but not as much as we did four years later? I suppose I should just accept the numbers as fact, but I can´t help feeling something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
When Republicans do all they can to ensure that minority populations cannot vote easily, they should not be surprised that fraud occurs. Voting should be easy, quick and honest. There were dirty tricks played by both Democrats and Republicans. When you have mob scenes at the polls you are not going to get honest totals. Both sides have a vested interest in having honest elections, I see no possibility of change happening.

The people vote,then the unelected nobodies come out of their commie closets and count the votes.Always a car trunk of democrat ballots show up just in time,every time.I think I see a pattern here and it is bad.
After three years on a vegan diet, former President Bill Clinton says he doesn’t crave steak. But cutting back on bread has been tough. "Heavily processed carbs, you really have to control that," Clinton told AARP in a recent interview about his eating habits. The former president, now 66, went on a strict diet after a health scare in 2010, and he says he´s kept it up. "I just decided that I was the high-risk person [for heart problems], and I didn´t want to fool with this anymore. And I wanted to live to be a grandfather," Clinton said.
The House Judiciary Committee provided Republican members of Congress Wednesday with an immigration packet to help prep lawmakers heading back to their districts over August recess. “This recess packet has been put together to help you communicate to your constituents the importance of immigration reform and the House Republican plan to produce solutions that actually fix the problems that plague our immigration systems,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte wrote in the packet introduction. The “Immigration Resource Kit,” obtained by The Daily Caller, features four sections, the first three laying out the committee’s goals, starting with strengthening border security and immigration enforcement.
In an interview with the Spanish-language television station Univision, Anthony Weiner opened up (a bit) about why he chose the name “Carlos Danger” for his online exchanges with Sydney Leathers. “It was a joke in my personal life between me and one person,” the New York City mayoral candidate said. “I’m not going to comment on anything about the information that that person has chosen to release. They can do whatever they want, try to harm me in any way that they want. I’m moving forward.” Since releasing transcripts of her chats with “Danger” to a gossip site,
In a July 28 letter addressed to “fellow Americans,” the union of former Border Patrol agents called for Congress to deny amnesty to illegal aliens and cited “transnational criminal businesses” that have “representatives” in 2,000 American cities. “Transnational criminal enterprises have annually invested millions of dollars to create and staff international drug and human smuggling networks inside the United States; thus it is no surprise that they
We’ve obsessed over political wives for years—searching for meaning and drama in the ambition of Hillary Clinton, the privilege of Cindy McCain, and the travails of Elizabeth Edwards—but the press conference that Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin gave on the state of their union felt like the moment when our obsession officially went overboard. “I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him,” Abedin said in heartfelt, halting tones, following her husband’s confession that he’d continued to sext with strangers after resigning from Congress two years ago in disgrace.
Michele Catalano was looking for information online about pressure cookers. Her husband, in the same time frame, was Googling backpacks. Wednesday morning, six men from a joint terrorism task force showed up at their house to see if they were terrorists. Which prompts the question: How´d the government know what they were Googling? Catalano (who is a professional writer) describes the tension of that visit. [T]hey were peppering my husband with questions. Where is he from? Where are his parents from? They asked about me, where was I, where do I work,
Four years after United Nations auditors declared that the U.N.’s billion-dollar program for moving people and equipment on peacekeeping charter flights was a mess, the world organization still spends too much to rent airplanes and helicopters, still favors a few suppliers of equipment over those who might want to bid for the work, and still doesn’t have the tools to keep track of its sprawling and overpriced system. Moreover, an examination by Fox News of U.N. procurement records shows that the results of the deeply flawed air charter system are hugely unfavorable to
I should be in a good mood. Really, I should… After all, I have a baby girl on the way, just purchased my first home, bought my first mailbox (oddly, I find this to be a very big deal), and it’s the middle of summer…my favorite season of the year (come to Jersey in February for the Super Bowl and you’ll see why winter doesn’t make the top three). Yet, there’s this tone that’s been set in the media lately that make me feel like we’re completely screwed morally as a country. And this isn’t an ideological column,
Unfortunately, the fall of Rome is a pattern repeated by empires throughout history ... including ours? A group of libertarians gathered in Las Vegas recently for an event called “FreedomFest.” We debated whether America will soon fall, as Rome did. Historian Carl Richard said that today’s America resembles Rome. The Roman Republic had a constitution, but Roman leaders often ignored it. “Marius was elected consul six years in a row, even though under the constitution (he) was term-limited to one year.” Sounds like New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg. “We have presidents of both parties legislating by executive order,
A House committee is set to examine hiring practices at a Department of Energy agency in Oregon that allegedly discriminated against veterans and retaliated against whistle-blowers. The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is holding a Thursday morning hearing regarding allegations of illegal personnel practices at the Bonneville Power Administration, a component of the federal agency that generates roughly one-third of all power used in the Northwest. Bonneville officials, according to a July 16 management alert report by the Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General, engaged in “prohibited personnel practices”
Newly-installed Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Thursday that the threat of a cyber attack shutting down the U.S. electric grid is the biggest worry of the Obama administration, not an electromagnetic pulse like the one the Earth barely avoided two weeks ago. "What I have to say is that the whole set of issues that could disrupt the grid are ones that we do look at. But our biggest focus, not surprisingly, is on cyber security in terms of disruption of the grid," Moniz told Secrets during a media breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
If Congress passes a continuing resolution (CR) that defunds President Obama´s signature health care law, and the president refuses to sign it, any resulting government shutdown will be Obama’s fault, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Tuesday on the Senate floor. "If we pass a budget that pays for everything except for Obamacare, and the President says he´ll veto that, it is he who wants to shut down the government. It is he who is basically saying, ´I will shut down the government unless it pays for Obamacare.´ And that is an unreasonable position.
Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government. The author of two New York Times bestsellers on the threats to the Constitution, Levin hopes his latest, "The Liberty Amendments," out mid-August, will spark the state lawmakers to tap a rarely used Constitutional provision to institute measures that would brake President Obama´s use of executive orders, bar thousand-page laws and
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
