    You’re wrong on this one and you miss the bigger points.

    There is no reason whatsoever for a lineman to show up at someone’s house and give the homeowner’s hell over working on their breaker panel or their in-home electrical system. I know several homeowners that pack heat and would gladly put the fear of God into such an a-hole lineman. He’s lucky to be alive. It was intrusive and none of his business period.

    It wouldn’t matter if he was dog catcher in the Aleuts, he is destined to be America’s leader and nothing can change that.

    Yes, the cause started with democrats but was continued or ignored by GOP establishment types. The subprime debacle would never have happened if there wasn’t an agreement put in place for the massive profits to be made by all parties.

    All this was made in a collusion of corrupt democrats and republicans. So it makes no sense to point at a party to blame. The reason I point to republicans is because that is the party that conservatives have a chance of gaining control over.

    The 2006 Comprehensive Immigration Reform aka Massive Amnesty spearheaded by G.W. Bush was the beginning of the end of the GOP. The result was a loss of Congress.

    Loss of Congress and wrongheaded GOP policies of banking and regulation led to the financial meltdown that gave the country over to Obama.

    And what of democrat policies? We can always count on them to be traitors to the Constitution. But we can’t have the GOP join them. Had the GOP opposed amnesty and the policies that led to the Wall St. corruption and crash, they would control Congress and the White House today.

    Instead we got John McCain in 2008 who is in effect a democrat. In 2012 we got the bottom of the whole rotton barrel in Romney.

    2012 should have been a cakewalk for a GOP nominee but it gave 4 more years of Obama.

    And 2014 should be a cakewalk for the GOP control of the US Senate. But the GOP establishment will squander that too and won’t mind the lost opportunity as they are bought and paid for by entities that do not care for American Conservatives.

    And now we are here with clarity in the corruption of Mississippi and the wrongful death of innocent Tea Party conservatives in Mark Mayfield.

    This conservative is not forgetting what the GOP has become.

    Nice thoughts...but they’re only thoughts, nice ones.

    It will never go anywhere because as the last part says, the Senate would have to approve and the President would have to sign. DOA!

    But there is one suggestion that has merit that came from one our Freepers, and that is a governor of a state should file for a federal court injunction against Obama’s overreach, real or potential, and allow the court docket to eat up the clock until after the next Congress is sworn in.

    A federal court injunction or federal restraining order would render all federal law enforcement illegal and off limits to carrying out Obama’s overreaching executive orders. No federal law enforcement officer will violate federal court orders that restrain Obama. Thus, Obama is neutered.

    A Freeper had an excellent suggestion that I think Senator Cruz needs to hear.

    The suggestion was for a state governor to file for a federal injunction against any legalizations or movements of illegal aliens across national borders or state borders until the court could sort out the law which could take a year or more. That would give time for republicans to take control of the Senate and put an end to the border insurgency.

    We do have incredibly patriotic men and women in our military who would do anything to defend our traditions and values.

    We have an internal war going on and not just with the democrats. This started with George H.W. Bush ‘Bush the Elder’ and his ‘Moderate’ Rockefeller-Republican approach to governing. His mistakes led to Clinton and Clinton led to ‘Bush the Younger’ who succumbed to the RINO Moderate wing of the party. That led to Obama who was opposed by two Moderate RINOs, McCain and Romney. So now we have got to ‘purge’ these losers from our party so that we will have our party back for winners.

    Our enemies are the democrats and the GOP establishment. If we don’t take out BOTH, we are lost for the 2016 cycle.

  • 5 Obvious Principles of Human Nature That Baffle Liberals

    07/29/2014 4:51:51 AM PDT · 15 of 27
    Hostage to Moltke

    Good observations. The English language is a treasure when used competently and precisely.

    I would replace his “the ugly truth about human nature” with “the current tempered realities of human capacities”. Likely there is a more poetic way of getting the point across.

    But his broad outline is good and serves as a template for developing his observational summaries further.

    What grates my daily thinking about liberals is their simpleminded notion that they alone see the ideal destination for humankind. For example, they see environmental degradation and in response organize politics to punish the abusers and and push upon all myriad fantasy solutions which sound good but are not tested and not practical. And the part that is so infuriating is felt when there exist true innovators who work to take the painstaking practical steps towards real solutions and this progress is usurped by liberals who claim that such progress would have never existed if it were not for their organizing the politics surrounding it.

    In short, liberals see something that is universally wrong and they jump up and down like children pointing to that something which is wrong as if they are the only ones that see it. Then when a more adult group notices that thing which is wrong and takes steps to right that wrong, liberals take credit in saying that without their pointing out the wrong there would never have been a solution. Therefore, it was they that solved the problem.

    > “Obama will have illegals voting by November”

    The Title here is to be taken in all seriousness. It is absolutely true that millions of illegals will be voting by November.

    How? You might ask.

    The Left has a hardened corps of organizers who act as ‘coaches’ and navigators for the undocumented. Already federal and state benefits are meted out without questioning the undocumented person’s legal status and in fact are not allowed by law or policy to inquire of an undocumented person’s legal status.

    It carries over to voter registrations. Questions are asked of a person’s citizenship status and other information such as social security numbers. The regulations are guided by policy that many voter applicants do not speak or understand English so a registration is flagged as provisional until other required documents are provided. In others words there is a lot of slop in the system; the system is sloppy.

    The Leftist intelligentsia have complete maps of voter demographics in every county and precinct. They know exactly where the battlegrounds are to overcome legitimate voters with fraudulent voters. They are capable of turning blue a red state like Texas. They will move the 26 year old ‘children’ to strategic locations where their presence can find its away onto voter rolls and be used to fight the takeover of the US Senate by the republicans.

    And then they will be used in the 2016 presidential election in the same way.

    Remember what Biden said at the border about the so=called ‘kids’ and all the other illegals. He said “I feel as though they are already American citizens”.

    The lawlessness is blatant.

    There are in fact some ‘kids’ who are not as the pictures of the tatooed gangbangers above, but they are transported to their illegal relatives who claim themselves as parents. Then Obama’s policy refuses to endorse these ‘parents’ and so the millions and millions of illegals that are here are ‘shielded’ by children that Obama has caused to be brought to America. And these millions and millions will be ‘coached’ on how to become registered to vote.

    I disagree with your high assessment of Medved’s knowledge of history. Anyone can google up a little background on anything and pick what fits their preconceived schtick.

    Years ago Medved ranted on and on about the impossibility of deporting millions and millions of illegal aliens. His so-called impeccable history left out the important piece with how Ike Eisenhower dealt with illegals in sending millions of them back to Mexico and beyond.

    Medved is shrill and bloviating, impolite and obnoxious. He talks down to people that don’t agree with him and he barely allows a word in edgewise from an opposing POV. And I don’t think he’s that smart or good at debating.

    Conservatives can do better, much better with someone other than Medved, say like Mark Levin.

    How does this make McConnell look conservative? He is just bowing to the Pro-Israel Lobby which he should. He still backs amnesty at the behest of the COC.

    This action is not even a pinprick to Obama’s lawlessness.

    If McConnell were a true conservative leader, he would back Cruz on modifying or repealing DACA, he would fund the deportation of all children, teenagers and young adults back to their home countries, sanction Mexico and other Central American countries that arranged and assisted in violating the USA’s borders, support impeachment preparations in in the House should Obama legalize millions of illegals by executive fiat and much more.

    But he won’t because he is not a conservative. McConnell is a hack and he is a dangerous one. It was he that directed a lot of the funds that were used in race-baiting ads in Mississippi to defeat the popular anti-amnesty conservative.

    > “Roberts and any of the other nine who have any integrity at all are morally obligated to rule in accordance with the law and with the Constitution.”

    Roberts is compromised.

    Some speculate the adoption of his children were at risk when he wrote his 2012 opinion. Whatever the reason, Obama has shown he is willing to cross whatever line of lawlessness is necessary to effect his ends. Roberts is no hero, and like most people will bend down to the those that hold the most power over others.

    It is also informative to know that Obama’s lawyers used exactly the playbook of FDR in regards to Social Security. At first Social Security was not a tax but a voluntary old age pensioner’s contribution plan. It wasn’t until later when FDR’s New Deal programs were being shot down in court that he had his lawyers argue that Social Security was a tax and therefore authorized under the 16th Amendment.

    One should also know that government run healthcare was also in the works under FDR but was ‘shelved’ until later. So it was in planning for more than 70 years.

    If Roberts had written against Obamacare, he could have necessarily set off a challenge to Social Security. He may have been smart enough to write his opinion so that Social Security was not approachable for repeal but he didn’t. And many think he and his staff were smart enough and capable to write such an opinion.

    Whether Roberts is still compromised is a question. I suspect Obama is so lawless now that nothing will stop him from preserving his ‘signature’ legislation. I believe even now Obama’s operatives are focused on Roberts and other SCOTUS members and staff to see where the leverage is.

    The size in numbers of the IDF is much smaller than the size of US military forces. The 32 dead would be similar to the USA losing between 500 and 700.

    So it’s a big deal.

    The IDF strives to minimize caualties and deaths and in this conflict they are needing to operate on terms of the enemy by entering buildings where the enemy has the element of surprise.

    We can suppose they could consider doing things differently. They could clear a town within a certain radius before entering buildings so that the enemy could not see them entering buildings. And they could use robots to enter buildings.

    Hostage to Kennard

    In the context of vote fraud, a registered voter who stays home or votes absentee can be ‘voted’ at a precinct station without their knowledge.

    In such case a conspiracy to stuff the ballot box ensues and the tally sheets need to reflect the appearance of the voter at the voting station. So marks need to be made on the poll sheets.

    One of the findings of the McDaniel election canvassing effort was that in many many counties there were many more ballots cast than there were registered votes. This indicates stuffing the ballot box. So this presents the opportunity for the criminal fraudsters to go and alter the tally sheets.

    The other argument that the criminal fraudsters will use in this context is that not everyone who shows at the voting station appears in the poll book of registered voters. In these cases the voter is given an affidavit form to fill out and is given a provisional ballot. These provisional ballots are to be held back until the status of the voter is sorted out. But those that stuff ballot boxes will dump fraudulent provisional ballots into the mix thereby losing traceability and diluting the votes of true voters.

    But in any case the affidavits associated with provisional ballots should be subject to review and that along with questions centered around absentee ballots are at issue.

    See #19 for a link to the 2nd refiled lawsuit in the Southern District wherein the petition was amended and modified from the 1st. Many affidavits were submitted that witnessed fraud during and after the election.

    I believe the Judge in addressing fraud was attempting to narrow the scope from a decision regarding fraud to one of access.

    But I am afraid that access and fraud are intertwined in this case. Access to redacted copies of records would assure the fraud committed would go on undetected because the usage of white-out does not show up on copies. So there is no way to know if copies reflect the faithful image of the original.

    We will see how astute the judge in this case is.

    dob is a side issue.

    Perhaps the more important issue is access to the originals, not copies.

    Affidavits have been filed with the TTV federal lawsuit that swear witness to the alteration of poll books using sharpee markers and white-out on information not related to the voter’s private information; in other words post-election fraud.

    Usage of white-out would not be discernible on ‘copies’.

    The case hinges on access to a precinct’s ‘poll books’ that show a list of voters registered in the precinct. The ‘poll books’ are used by registered precinct volunteers to check the eligibility of each voter that comes from the line at the voting station. For each voter in line at the voting station, a precinct volunteer will place a mark by the voter’s name on the ‘poll book’ to show the voter appeared and voted. Therefore, the ‘poll books’ become the election’s ‘tally sheets’.

    Note importantly that MS state election law says that all ‘Ballot Box’ materials are to be made available to the McDaniel campaign for a review.

    But how are the materials defined in the ‘Ballot Box’? What are they? Well, certainly tally sheets are defined as Ballot Box materials. But the term ‘Poll Book’ does not appear in the definition. But precinct workers know for sure that the tally sheet is simply the marked up poll book.

    There are 82 counties in MS. 60 of those counties provided access to the ‘poll books’ or tally sheets for the McDaniel campaign to review and they posted a deputy to monitor the reviewers so that nothing can be said to taint the review process. 60 out of 82 counties knew that the McDaniel campaign was completely with their rights to request an inspection of their poll books!

    Furthermore, McDaniel’s lawyers had to file petitions for Writs of Mandamus on 19 counties controlled by the Cochran-Barbour gang in order to get access to their poll books which comprised the tally sheets. And 4 of the hearings on the Writs were won by the McDaniel lawyers. So they decided to cut it short and go to the MS Supreme Cronies of Cochran Court and get all the other 15 counties to provide access with one fell swoop. But the MS Supreme Court decided to play games with words and definitions.

    To give an example that illustrates the absurdity of the MS Supreme Court decision, consider the following:

    A man has a fiancee who happens to be Native American and he wants to marry her. So he applies to the state courthouse for a marriage license. The name of his fiancee happens to be ‘Horse’. The state clerk asks the man who are you going to be marrying? And the man replies ‘Horse’. The clerk then denies the license writing the reason is that a person is not allowed to marry a horse. The man says “look she’s not a Horse (poll book), she’s human (tally sheet)” and the court again says the matter is concluded and that the state asserts that people are not allowed to marry their horses.

    So now the case opened today in federal court under True The Vote (TTV) and a whole lot of Mississippi voters as plaintiffs. Hopefully the federal judge will grant access to the ‘poll books’ so that the election review can be completed and a stop can be put to the nonsense coming from the Cochran-Barbour gang.

    The MS Supreme Court just a few hours ago denied the Motion for Reconsideration. For anyone following the case closely, the MS Supreme Court is clearly in error here but chooses to follow the Cochran-Barbour gang of which they owe their positions and future livelihood.

    Unfettered access to ballot materials by the McDaniel campaign now hinges on the TTV lawsuit in federal court which started its hearing today and hopefully will conclude with a decision soon.

    McDaniel’s Motion for Reconsideration before the MS Supreme Court has just been denied which is not surprising.

    Now access to the poll books/tally sheets rests on the decision in federal court that should be forthcoming soon.

    MCdaniel’s lawyers filed petitions for Writs of Mandamus in 19 counties. They won in 4 counties and then took Harrison county to the MS Supreme Court so they could apply the clear argument to all the rest of the counties without appearing in each county for a hearing. However, the MS Supreme Court ruled the poll books are not defined as part of the ballot box materials. This was an error.

    A Motion of Reconsideration has been filed in MS Supreme Court arguing that poll books are not simply printouts of voter registrations broken down by precinct level. The poll books are kept at a table by registered volunteers to check voter eligibility when they come from the line at precinct voting stations. Then a mark is made in the poll book next to the voter’s names to indicate the voter appeared and voted. The poll books become tally sheets for the election and tally sheets are defined as part of the materials of the ballot box. Tally sheets are in fact part of the ballot box materials and therefore McDaniel has all rights to review the poll book/tally sheets.

    Where the MS Supreme Court erred is in not understanding that poll books are used to keep a tally of voters and therefore are the election’s tally sheets. When the definition of ballot box materials (which lists tally sheets as part) failed to list the term ‘poll books’ as part, the MS Supreme Court ruled that poll books were not part of the ballot box materials as defined in MS State law and were therefore subject to the MS Public Records Disclosure Act.

    What you say is untrue and you know it.

    He is not allowed access to the poll books which were present at each precinct and were in fact used as tally sheets to record whether a voter voted or not. Tally sheets are considered part of the ballot box materials. A motion for reconsideration is now before the MS Supreme Court to emphasize that in fact the poll books were used as tally sheets.

    The poll books are kept during the election by volunteers who come from each party. McDaniel and his officially designated supporters are able to view all and any of the precinct poll books during the election but now that the election is concluded, the MS Secretary of State who is a Barbour stooge has prevented the McDaniel campaign from reviewing the very poll books for which they had all rights to monitor during the election. 60 counties in MS have granted McDaniel access to the poll books/tally sheets without any restriction and that fact of itself points to a deception on the part of Hosemann.

    McDaniel is not allowed access because the poll book/tally sheets are being withheld in 19 counties that are controlled by the Cochran camp. They are charging McDaniel a dollar per page for ‘access’. At an average 14,000 pages per precinct multiplied by 19 counties, the Cochran camp is requiring a payment of at least $266,000 for ‘access’ to ‘copies’. That’s not access, that’s a barrier to access.

    Put all the above together with the affidavits from TTV of alteration of original poll books using sharpee pens and white out on information that is not associated with voter privacy, which would not show up on ‘copies’, and it is obvious the vote fraud is assured if McDaniel accedes to the contrivances of the Cochran people.

    Good and polite description for Maher’s sperm receptacle. More congenial than the Irish beast that roars inside this conservative.

    Madame Coulter jumped the shark a long time back. She and her paying customers have failed to address the disgusting race baiting that Haley Barbour and his gang including a not-small number of GOP US Senators and Monsieur Bloomberg poured large sums of voter’s money into, without these voters knowledge and with the understanding from these voters that their money would be used for other purposes.
