Texas threatens prosecution against international poll watchers

2 Comments

This is from Fox News Politics.

The rest of America needs to stand up to these UN observers.

We are not some Muslim third world sh!@ hole.

We need to get out of anything to do with the United Nations.

It is time to throw the United Nations out of America.

Texas has a message for international election observers planning to watch over the Lone Star vote Nov. 6: “BRING IT.”

Texas officials this week launched a prickly and very public dispute with the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe, which plans to send monitors to polling sites across the U.S. on Election Day. The group has done this since 2002 — but this year, Texas took exception to what officials perceived as a challenge to the latest wave of voter ID laws.

Attorney General Greg Abbott is now threatening to prosecute any observer who breaks state law by getting too close to any polling site.

“The OSCE may be entitled to its opinions about Voter ID laws, but your opinion is legally irrelevant in the United States,” Abbott wrote in a letter this week to the OSCE.

He went on to remind representatives that they are not allowed to enter a polling place, and cautioned against going within 100 feet of the entrance. “Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law,” he wrote.

The letter touched off a flurry of testy tweets and correspondence that brought in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to play ref. Janez Lenarcic, director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, fired off a letter to Clinton to complain — which was followed by a letter from Abbott to Clinton reiterating his concerns.

“The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable,” Lenarcic said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”

The United States is one of dozens of members of the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on Thursday acknowledged Clinton had received letters from both sides and tried to offer assurances.

She said the plan to send observers “isn’t any different” than in past years.

“We had, I think, about 15 states that they were going to go to,” she said. “To my knowledge, (Texas is) the only state that came forward and said please reassure us that you’re going to follow our state electoral law. And they have now been reassured.”

On Twitter, Abbott didn’t sound reassured.

He tweeted: “UN-related vote monitors warn Texas: Don’t mess with us. My response: BRING IT.”

Gov. Rick Perry also chimed in, saying “No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process.”

Perry praised a statement from Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade addressing both sides. She said in a letter to the OSCE that she was concerned the monitoring program could be “politicized in a manner that could diminish or permanently damage” its credibility. She also said it’s important for Texans to understand the group has no jurisdiction over state elections and is only there to learn.

Abbott had expressed concern that OSCE met with groups that have filed suit against voter laws in Texas — including the ACORN-tied Project Vote. A number of left-leaning groups have challenged efforts to enact strict photo ID laws in Texas and other Republican-controlled states, claiming they’re an effort to disenfranchise minority voters. Republican lawmakers say they’re merely aimed at cracking down on voter fraud.

The Texas law is not yet in effect, having been blocked by a federal court. Abbott has taken his case to the Supreme Court.

The OSCE referenced such laws in an Oct. 19 report, saying “recent state-level legislative initiatives to limit early voting and introduce stricter voter identification have become highly polarized. Democrats are concerned that these would disenfranchise eligible voters, while Republicans believe they are necessary to protect the integrity of the vote.”

South Carolina Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire said Friday that the OSCE observers are also expected to come to his state, where officials have pushed a similar voter ID law that is not yet in effect. But Whitmire said South Carolina does not share Texas’ concerns.

“Whoever wants to come observe South Carolina elections, we welcome them,” he told FoxNews.com. “We want our election to be as open as possible.”

Convicted Felons to Vote In November Thanks to Obama Supporters

5 Comments

 

This is from Godfather Politics.

Offenders always blamed Republicans for being in prison.

The offenders complained about Republicans being big on Law and Order.

When I was a Correctional Officer offenders said they knew DemocRats would help them.

They knew a former and present DemocRat Presidents smoked pot and snorted blow.

The offenders assumed the President would lookout for the ones with drug convictions.

And this President restore their right to vote even  while they were still in prison.

As we draw closer to the elections in November, we are learning there are numerous ways to win an election other than by the ballots cast by legal registered voters.

In several state primaries, it was discovered that dead people and non-U.S. citizens had voted.  In some states, there are still thousands of dead people and non-citizens on the voter registration rolls.  Why, we’ve even read where a guy’s dog that had been dead for two years received a voter registration card in the mail.

And through it all, the Democrats have fought tooth and nail to prevent states from cleaning up their voter registration records and removing dead people and non-citizens.  They have also fought long and hard to prevent states from enacting voter ID laws and in some instances the DOJ has declared such laws discriminatory and illegal.

I always have to laugh at the hypocrisy of the Democrats on claiming the voter ID is discriminatory and will prevent poor black people from voting.  Those same poor black people have to have some form of ID in order to receive all of the government aid and handouts they get, so what makes a voter ID any different?  Besides, thousands of Americans have sacrificed their lives and limbs to secure and maintain the right to vote, but not to secure and maintain government entitlements.

In Ohio, there as a push to remove the requirement of needing a permanent mailing address from qualifying to be able to register to vote.  Fortunately, that was defeated.  Not needing an address or an ID would allow many people to register in numerous places under numerous names and thus allow them to vote numerous times.   I strongly suspect that this was the true motivation behind the effort.

Then President Barack Obama used an Executive Order to illegally bypass Congress and grant nearly one million young illegal aliens to avoid deportation and obtain work permits.  In the process they would also become eligible to obtain valid state driver’s licenses, which in most states allows you to register to vote even if you are not a citizen.  Several states have taken measures to block the driver’s license provision, but most have not.

Let’s not forget the voter intimidation by members of the New Black Panther organization.  They were filmed using threats of violence to intimidate voters in 2008, but Eric Holder and the DOJ refused to prosecute them and dropped all charges against them.

Now the Advancement Project has been pressuring Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and Secretary of State Janet Kelly into making the effort to reinstate the right to vote to convicted felons in their state.  They claim to be a ‘multi-racial civil rights organization’ started in 1999.  The leaders of the organization have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to the Democratic National Committee and to Obama’s campaign.  So it is no wonder they are trying to get voting rights for felons so they can vote for Obama.

According to Advancement Project’s website:

“A spokesperson with the Governor’s office says to date he has restored the right to vote for more than 3,500 felons. Jeff Caldwell said they’re on track to surpass the past governors’ record in Virginia.”

“In recent years he says former Gov. Tim Kaine restored rights to 4,402 felons.  Mark Warner restored 3,486 and former Gov. George Allen restored the rights of 460 felons…”

‘“There are 350,000 convicted felons in Virginia that have not yet had their rights restored. This can be a major impact on voting and the elections, from national to state to local,’ said Walker.”

Just a side thought, but if Gov. McDonnell believes these convicted felons have fully paid their debt to society and should be granted the right to vote, what about their right to possess a firearm?  I haven’t seen any of the liberal organizations or Democrats fighting to restore those rights, and no wonder since most of them are anti-gun anyway.  But let’s face it, if you legally declare someone to have paid their debt for their crime and you start restoring the rights they lost be committing a felony, should not those rights include the right to possess a gun?

Chicago, where Obama started his political career has a long history of corrupt elections.  The cities motto for years was if you can win an election legally, steal it any way you can.

In 2008, Obama won Virginia by seven points.  At the moment, the polls show the race between Obama and Romney to be much closer.  That means that Obama is going to need the vote of every dead person, non-citizen, pet and convicted felon, along with the voter intimidation of New Black Panther members if he wants to secure his victory in November.

 

Bring Out Your Dead: 30,000 Corpses Registered to Vote in N.C.

Leave a comment

 

This is from Clash Daily.

It seems the Democrat’s have 30,000 new voters in North Carolina.

Here is 30,000 reasons for voter ID laws.

A Raleigh-based group devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud presented the N.C. Board of Elections on Friday with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote.

The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 and comparing them to the voter rolls.

“Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” said project director Jay DeLancy. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”
DeLancy said his group has found evidence to suggest voter fraud in these numbers, but will not quantify how much until he is able to do more analysis. Most cases of what look like a dead person voting are likely just administrative errors, such as a son named Junior voting in his father’s name instead of his own.

The rolls of registered voters are updated every month when the state Department of Health and Human Services gives a list of all death certificates received that month to the state Board of Elections.
Problems arise when the names on the death certificates do not match the names on the voting records, which often happens after women get married, Board of Elections General Counsel Don Wright said Friday. Addresses are also often listed with slight differences, Wright said. An address on West Millbrook Road and Millbrook Road might be the same house, but computers won’t always catch it. “Unless there is an exact match, we do not remove people from the voter rolls,” Wright said.

DeLancy said his volunteers work to fix the discrepancies, by examining cases of similar names and addresses and confirming other pieces of data, such as whether the voter has the same date of birth.
Wright said the elections board will investigate the names provided by the Voter Integrity Project and take appropriate action. The state board can remove voters from the rolls for inactivity if they haven’t voted in two consecutive elections, which cleans up most problems over time, Wright said.

In 2009, 261 cases of voter fraud were sent to local district attorney’s offices in the state, the majority of which concluded investigations from the 2008 election, according to a report by the state Board of Elections. Of those cases, 229 involved convicted felons voting. The board did not investigate anyone for fraud in the May primaries, Wright said.

DeLancy says his group’s list of dead registered voters would have been larger had it included records from Virginia and South Carolina, which together account for 55 percent of all North Carolinians’ out-of-state deaths, he said. Although most states allow the release of death certificates for voter registration accuracy, Virginia and South Carolina do not, DeLancy said.

 

Federal court rules against Texas voter ID law

This is from Fox News Politics.

The Federal Courts ruling is straight from the Liberal Playbook.

It included the tried old line of affecting the poor and minorities.

The only thing missing was the impact on women,children and old folks.

Voter fraud is the way DemocRats best win elections.

The 1960 Presidential race with John Kennedy and Chicago.

The 1948 Senate Race and Landslide Lyndon Johnson.

A federal court has ruled against a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November.

A three-judge panel in Washington ruled Thursday that the law imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor” and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty.

The decision involves an increasingly contentious political issue: a push, largely by Republican-controlled legislatures and governor’s offices, to impose strict identification requirements on voters.

The ruling comes in the same week that South Carolina’s strict photo ID law is on trial in front of another three-judge panel in the same federal courthouse. A court ruling in the South Carolina case is expected in time for the November election.

Former Congressman Admits Voter Fraud is Extensive

Leave a comment

 

This is from the 1789 Project.
We need to stay alert and prevent voter fraud

All Republics, including ours, are based on the foundation of respect for the rule of law. Anywhere laws are ignored, or violated without penalty, our Constitution is undermined. But law-breaking is even more catastrophic when it undermines our very choice of representatives, by destroying the elections process that is the mechanics of a Republic.
Several states have recently enacted voter-ID requirements in an effort to stop widespread voter fraud, such as that attempted by ACORN. Liberal groups have opposed this effort, under the guise of looking out for ‘underprivileged minorities.’
We were pleasantly surprised to see a liberal former congressman advocating for voter ID in this video.
