Obama Likely Won Re-Election
Through Election Fraud

Townhall, by Rachel Alexander

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/12/2012 10:26:13 AM

There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800´s. The left wing media predictably did everything it could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama´s race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans on welfare were predisposed to vote for the food stamp president over

Comments:
Likely?? I would say it´s pretty much a given the criminals in the regime stole the election. Gary Johnson helped them along.

There´s little question in my mind that this was fraud. With the electronic voting sans paper, its easier and less traceable than ever before.

Ms. Wood writes a comforting article (we didn´t lose, they stole it), but really only discusses Ohio. Democrats have been stealing Ohio since at least the Nixon/Kennedy election. Even if we accept that Florida, also, was won through vote fraud, those two states switching sides would not have given Romney the victory. Certainly vote fraud is an enormous problem and something must be done (no, I don´t know what), but there are many more factors that carried Obama again. We cannot get past the almost unanimous black vote for him. We also can´t ignore the failure of our own to turn out in the numbers Mitt Romney had been assured he could expect. We told pollsters we were definitely enthusiastic and we were definitely going to vote for Romney and then we stayed home.

It seems to me that a Republican Governor Kasich should have been prepared for the fraud in his Ohio. Why wasn´t he? And what does he intend to do about it in the future?

Ron Paul witholding votes by not throwing support to Mitt shares the blame with the lame Gary Johnson IMO.

The commie left wing of the dems do not go second party and they are winning. What part of Communism don´t the Libertarians like? Looking for or fostering liberty in all the wrong places, guys. First ys gotta win but being hybrids, Libertarians win a half glass not matter who overcomes at the polls. Can´t exactly call it a win with stacked decks.

Michael Savage said it immediately: "There are millions of [illegals]. Not only the millions that Obama openly granted amnesty to with the so-called Dream Act, but the millions who are here illegally who have no right to vote.

But because the illegal, illicit Democratic Party fought the states that wanted a strict voter ID requirement in order to vote – we´re the only Western nation that doesn´t require it – that is how they got the election again."

Philadelphia Rs put over 500 new R Table Officials by Court Order [Minority Inspectors and Clerks] in Divisions where none had worked before. [This in addition to the 1000+ election Divisions where R Table workers regularly sit, and numerous Poll Watchers]

Many new Rs officials were not allowed to sit or even be inside Polling Places till the afternoon. The ´GOP Lawyers´ were overwhelmed and often did not respond for 4+ hours to distress calls. [also they reputedly were not prepared to adequately defend the Table Workers]

*A lot of voting fraud can take place in 15 minutes, let alone 4 hours.

*In Philadelphia, people are regularly taken from place to place to vote under phoney [not them] names on the street list. D Table Judges of Election regularly give ´illegal assistance´ inside voting machines. Also D Table workers also sign for absent ´voters´ on the books, and go in and vote for these ´non-present voters´

PS many divisions ran out of the allotted 40 ´Provisional ballots´ intended for voters at a poll, not on the street list.

NOTE
The D Chief Election Commissioner was on NPR and TV speaking out against voter ID, prior to the Judicial ruling against it for this all-important election.

Voter ID will not help id D collusion on the Election Board Table does not enforce it.

Felons in Pa can be Election Judges, and NO D Table officials have [in recent memory] been charged with Election fraud, let alone convicted.

If you go to the DMV in California to get a drivers licence, they electronically register your thumbprint when you check in at the first counter. Every test area you visit after that in the process they again check your print against the original. That stops someone else from taking your eye test, written test or driving test. They wouldn´t have instituted this procedure if there hadn´t been countless problems of cheating the system.

Most medical institutions I go to have a palm print machine which is entered into their computer system. Whenever you check in to one of their facilities, this imprint identifies you and they have your records at hand. It is efficient and doesn´t violate anyone´s so called rights. That is of course unless you think cheating is covered under the criminal bill of rights.

Why then isn´t a system like this instituted for voting. That thumb or palm print should be required when you register to vote. If you register twice or vote more than once you would automatically be disqualified from the current vote count and from ever voting again. Cheating in today´s elections is rampant and it has to stop. Someone should take this to the Supreme Court while there is still a majority of sane people on the court (I´m counting Roberts).

After all, didn´t the Supreme Court affirm a one man one vote rule under a liberal Warren court. Enforce it or go under.

Blah blah blah blah. Unless you can provide hard evidence of it on a scale that affected the outcome, all you are doing is providing self-pitying excuses that get in the way of a cold-blooded analysis of the loss. Might as well suggest that space aliens intervened. It´s about that useful.

We need to start making states accountable for their voter fraud.

Perhaps we need to start talking about disqualifying a state´s electoral votes in a Presidential election if they are found to be doing little to curb voter fraud.

It´s not hard to put a lid on this crap. Voter ID, registration at least 30 days ahead of time, reliable voting methods such as punch cards and writing in ballots, laws that protect election overseers from both parties.

Seriously, when are we going to say enough and really start putting the screws to this?

Phila Rs have overturned a State Senate Election, based on phoney Absentee Ballots, ..... but it´s almost impossible to get a conviction against D Table officials, if the R ´watchdog´ Court Ordered Table Officials are barred from the polls.

Ds in Phila think Voter Fraud is ´no big deal´ and doesn´t really count ...... it´s gone on so long and with the tacit approval of previous DAs etc, that it´s the regular way of doing business.

´Money talks ..... b---t walks´ and unfortunately too many people are ´for sale´.

$10 per polling place for those in the van in 2010 was the rate.

Voter fraud and Gary Johnson? Puh-leeze.

Okay, so there is voter fraud. We know that. The problem is not that Romney lost the popular vote by a little over 2-1/2%. The problem is that Romney lost all but one swing state, resulting in an electoral victory for -0-bama of 332 to 206 – which is not even close. Voter fraud in Ohio and a million votes for Johnson don’t begin to explain 11 million voters who stayed home, or the losses in all of the other swing states.

Simple explanations like “voter fraud” and blaming conservatives prevent the GOP from doing any actual self-assessment. Blaming others for your defeat is petty, whiny and juvenile. We ran the moderate (again) and lost (again) – a loss which included a huge swath of moderates and potential cross-over voters who opted to stay home rather than cast a vote for the “electable” candidate.

I think Ron Paul should take some of that blame !!!

Most of his people stated that they would NOT vote for Mitt, and would just stay home !!

Ron Paul could have come out and stated to his people, " Mitt Romney is not the best candidate that we could ask for, but He is better than having Obama back in. Please vote for Mitt".

BUT, he did not !!! So they stayed home !!

#29 is spot on. The bigger issue is that Romney was a weak candidate fighting an uphill battle. Me too liberalism can´t win over genuine liberalism.

There are a lot of conservative policies that are enormously popular. The GOP needs to find a candidate who can articulate those policies (here´s a hint: someone who doesn´t refer to himself as "severely conservative").

Every time I think back - and heck, even AT the time - to the past few weeks on Fox News´s The Five, Bob Beckel just seemed way overly confident that Obama would win. His attitude, and how he looked at the others, and things he said had me seriously wondering before the election if he knew something.

I recall last summer he was gone for a week or so, and when he came back he was sharper and more caustic in his comments and I mentioned to DH - jokingly! - that it seemed as if Bob had been away at Re-Education Camp. And now I´m thinking HE WAS, and HE DID know.

No proof, of course - this is a lame, factless hunch I have, but I´m convinced of it.

We had illegals being registered to vote out here in Las Vegas by the local Culinary Union (and SEIU), and even the ones who knew they couldn´t vote here were PRESSURED to do so anyway, under threat of losing their jobs in the hotels, casinos and restaurants here.

The Las Vegas tourism industry underbelly.

Consider the vote count and electoral totals. Those broad spans of numbers can mean only one thing: That the libs overdid it to the point it´s painfully obvious. One in fifty vehicles out here had Obama stickers on them, ZERO yard signs, while I saw many for Romney-Ryan.

These are NOT coinkydinks.

But who´ll do anything about it..........?

I was listening to the radio last night (I don´t know the host´s name) but he said that in many of the Republican leaning precincts--where people stood in line for upwards of 3 hours--the final count reflected only 80% to 85% participation.

He also said that 0bama won with over 10 million fewer votes than he got in 2008.

And "well liked" Romney received 3 million fewer votes than "not liked" McCain.

He was implying there is something wrong with those vote totals.

Later, he was discussing the electronic voting machines and said if any part of one´s finger was more than 1/4 inch outside the icon for Romney, the vote recorded for 0bama, that the whole screen--not just the 0bama icon--would register a vote for 0bama.

I don´t know how accurate that radio host´s information is, but coupled with the previous articles about voters complaints that the "screen kept going to 0bama when I tried to vote for Romney" I have to wonder. At least Oklahoma still has paper ballots to mark.

Democrats do not want anything but our death. Anything they do to achieve that is, for them, morally okay. People who would not normally cheat are cheating because they have been convinced we need very badly to be dead or the world will die. It is their religion.

Do not argue reason--it won´t work.
Do not change your behavior--it won´t matter.
Do not appease them--it will only get worse.

Thanks, 31, a lot of people felt that way in 2008. A lot of Jews felt that way as socialist policies were advocated in Germany in the 1930s. Liberals don´t just get mad at their scapegoats; they "get even." The worse things get, the less the ´rats will be held accountable. I guarantee it.

The disparity between the vote tallies and the enthusiasm evidenced in the Chick-fil-A episode, the rally turnouts, and the neck and neck polling in ludicrously over sampled D cohorts, all point to massive fraud.

The electronic machines need to be certified by bonded service companies and the national ID must become law. The sorry excuse that ID will suppress the bozo vote is past its expiry date.

Maybe it is time that some Republicans became democrats. The party machinery at the local level is pretty easy to become involved with. Also my experience with leftist is that they can´t conceive of conservatives being so sneaky. So getting a Republican moles in the democratic establishment might be fairly easy to do.

All it takes is a few people in positions to see the corruption and to record the meetings to blow it open in an off year election or local election when they are not expecting it.

Another possible ploy is in states like California which has the new rule that says there cannot be an unopposed election so that there are now sometimes 2 democrats on the ballot. If a republican were to run as a democrat and say all the leftist things they might could get elected. Once elected they have a forum to drag the demonrats back towards sanity if they couch their arguments right. They could also run as extreme leftist and make a few high profile votes for leftist issues if elected. However, if they lost the person who won the election would be more moderate and not beholding to the far left which is a good thing

Just a thought

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal column. He revealed that the White

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb. Stokes, a legend in the civil-rights history of Ohio´s populous

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of the chickens that had to lay all those thousands and thousands of eggs.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military and American intelligence agencies have quietly pushed the White House in recent weeks to deny a new Russian surveillance plane the right to fly over U.S. territory. This week, the White House finally began consideration of the decision whether to certify the new Russian aircraft under the so-called “Open Skies Treaty.” And now the question becomes: Will the spies and generals get their way? As the United States and Russia face off publicly over Ukraine, behind the scenes, President Obama’s national security cabinet is having its own quiet feud over a

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

Conservative leader and Catholic L. Brent Bozell III today blasted Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for mimicking the pope´s Holy Week foot-washing tradition while touting her immigration reform legislation: "I am a Catholic and I am offended at Minority Leader Pelosi´s continued abuses of the Catholic Church´s teachings and traditions. As a Catholic who has watched Ms. Pelosi champion one anti-Catholic cause after another, I believe this to be sacrilegious. "Christ taught the washing of the feet as an act of utter humility, while she turned a sacred religious tradition into a grandstanding political publicity stunt.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
