Jesse Jackson: Long Voter
Lines a ‘Form of Suppression’

Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Burke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/12/2012 12:52:49 PM

Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, said that long lines at Pennsylvania polling places on Election Day were a form of voter suppression. He added that he has not seen lines like the ones at early polling places in Ohio since the election of Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Speaking on Election Day at a press conference in Ohio, Jackson said, “But they don’t have the early voting. They only vote today in Pennsylvania, so those will be very long lines. And very long lines, while they

Comments:
We will never rid ourselves of this racist moron. Holder and the rest of the radicals in the DOJ must be thrilled with their battle over voter ID laws and alleged suppression. They got just the results they wanted.

It´s not voter suppression when the long lines are formed by people bused from the slums and backwaters of the Chicago swamp into another out-of-state precinct

Whining about long lines being equivalent to voter suppression probably means you are a lazy, entitlement culture person of color who relies on idiots like Jesse Jackson to solve your problems, when the solving of the problems would mean the end of people like Jesse Jackson.

Whew! I´m glad I got that off my chest!

Voting is a form of suppression. You have mark a paper or touch a screen or something. If Jesse had the power he would end all that nonsense.

JSM - Jackson State Media - would just announce an election had been held and he won again.

Obama and the Democrats will do the same. Expect DSM or OSM to be the only media by November 2014.

I think our Democrat friends use as their means of "voter suppression" as scads of illegimately cast votes, phony registrations, and outright vote-buying and bundling (this happens a lot in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, where a group of Democrat activists are paid handsomely to actually "deliver" a given number of votes for the candidate hiring the activist, usually in the RAT primary).

For example, I saw the chart from that one county in Allan West´s Florida district, each of which returned in excess of 100% of all registered voters in the voting precinct.

Okay, maybe I can buy one or two precincts in a county returning in excess of 100% of registered voters due to move-ins, late registrations or legitimate provisional ballots (bureaucracies, as we´ll find out with Obamacare, screw up). But I have a hard time believing that ALL of them are in excess of 100% of registration ... don´t tell me that many people all just happened to move there.

Nor can you convince me that 59 Philadelpha precints had NO votes for Gov. Romney, all for Dear Leader(US), may his name be praised.

THAT is voter supression ... using manufactured votes to suppress the value of my legitimately cast ballot.


Welcome to The Resistance. I´m still working on the secret handshake.

How long does a line need to be if you vote straight democrat? Maybe people are stopping to READ and they are getting messed up because they have retention issues.

You know, because I want to be really clear here about who exactly is more likely to be suppressed, and by whom.

Last Thursday, Mozilla, the company that´s home to the web browser Firefox, forced the resignation of CEO Brendan Eich. What, precisely, had Eich done wrong? Back in 2008, Eich had donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 effort backing traditional marriage in California. Dating website OKCupid posted a ban on Firefox traffic, issuing a message to Firefox users instead: "Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure." That ban reportedly prompted the action at Mozilla. Of course, it was the people pushing for Eich´s ouster who were enforcing

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today that Americans need to stand up to "a deliberate plan by the president of the United States" to collapse the nation´s law enforcement system regarding illegal immigration. In a Senate speech, Sessions said: "Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse, and it´s a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it´s wrong.

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

A woman was taken into federal custody Thursday after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton as the former Secretary of State began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech. The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort. Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped. Many in the audience of more than 1,000 people in a large ballroom laughed and applauded as Clinton resumed her

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
