  • Karl Rove: McCain Couldn't Compete With Obama's [Crooked] Money

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | DECEMBER 3, 2008, 11:28 P.M. ET | Karl Rove
    If money talks, we'll likely soon hear the real reason why Barack Obama beat John McCain. Both men and the national parties will report to the Federal Election Commission today how much money they raised in October and November. And what the numbers will probably show is that Mr. Obama outspent Mr. McCain by the biggest margin in history, perhaps a quarter of a billion dollars. It's been reported that the Obama campaign accepted donations from untraceable, pre-paid debit cards used by Daffy Duck, Bart Simpson, Family Guy, King Kong and other questionable characters. If the FEC follows up with...
  • NBC covers the BC case but with a smokescreen

    They keep mis-stating that Hawaii claimed Obama was born there--they did not, only that his birth cert is on file. Background: Hawaii Revised Statute 338-178 allows registration of birth in Hawaii for a child that was born outside of Hawaii to parents who, for a year preceding the child’s birth, claimed Hawaii as their place of residence. Since Hawaii issues “Certificates of Live Birth” to children not born in Hawaii and “Birth Certificates” to children who are born in Hawaii, the only way to know where Senator Obama was actually born is to view Senator Obama’s original birth certificate from...

    Utah's chief federal judge will not be disciplined for donating money to Barack Obama's campaign. Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Robert Henry cleared U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell in a decision posted last week. He did say the donation was unethical but noted that Campbell had promised no similar donations in the future.

    "Another court, another cover-up," says Andy Martin. "What is wrong with our country when someone can be 'elected' without providing access to the original copy of their birth certificate? Something is drastically wrong with our democracy, and every American will pay the price. We will be issuing a fund raising appeal to continue this battle on appeal. The claim that a president's birth certificate is secret is complete nonsense." Andy Martin plans appeal of Honolulu court decision on Obama birth certificate, has not yet received a copy of the ruling
  • Minnesota "Recount": More Ballots Being "Recounted" than Cast on Election Day - All For Franken!

    11/20/2008 2:06:47 PM PST · by Chet 99 · 31 replies · 2,537+ views
    COLEMAN CAMPAIGN NOT HAPPY WITH FRANKEN'S GAIN IN RAMSEY Mike Roman, Coleman's lead representative in Ramsey County, says he remains unsatisfied with the apparent emergence of 12 new ballots in a St. Paul precinct, but that the campaign's only recourse might be to take the issue to court — a step that would be made by campaign officials superior to him. The issue could be important because, as of Thursday afternoon, Franken had picked up at least 13 more votes than he did Election Day. The concern arose late yesterday when the total number of ballots sorted in Ward 3,...

Use this Minnesota state statute as your guide.This Beltrami County voter cast their ballot for Al Franken, but also put "Lizard People" as a write-in candidate, not only in the U.S. Senate race, but for several others.

    The good news? Ken Timmerman’s still on the case. The bad news? This one’s mostly a rehash of his earlier report. If you read that at the time and have been following the story since then at HA — especially the details about Team Barry accepting donations via gift card, which figures prominently in Timmerman’s new piece — you’re pretty much caught up. The juiciest bit of new info: With more than half of the Obama campaign’s contributions coming from small donors who don’t need to be identified fully, it’s entirely likely that the Edwan brothers were not alone among...
  • Democrats Attempt Full Precinct Disenfranchisement

    11/18/2008 3:10:12 PM PST · by Mount Athos · 6 replies · 994+ views
    When an entire precinct of voters are about to have their votes thrown out by state legislators, you would think that some of those bold first amendment types would step up and sue and embarrass everyone in the process, top to bottom, to be sure that the votes were counted. Thus far in Kentucky, the disenfranchisement has been accompanied only by awkward silence. Why? How could they? Could it have something to do with whose votes are being thrown out? Whose seat is up for grabs? I suspect it does. In the election for the 26th District house seat State...

    I came across this watching Hannity and Colmes, and had to let you enjoy it too. A video survey of Obama voters displayed on HowObamaGotElected.com confirms the results of a recent Zogby poll: Obama won on the basis of shocking ignorance of the electorate, fed by shocking media bias. Everyone knew which candidate had had an "issue" with clothes, and which candidate had had a daughter get pregnant (Sarah Palin, for those of you whose sub-rock habitat gets bad reception), but the question of which party was in control of Congress was a much more difficult matter for them. Again...
  • Experts confounded: Turnout higher in Ohio in 2004

    The Columbus Dispatch ^ | Nov. 7, 2007 | Mark Niquette
    Despite a record number of registered voters this year, intense interest in the presidential election and the historic outcome, Ohio's voter turnout was lower Tuesday than in 2004, unofficial statistics show. Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is reporting 67 percent turnout, compared with 72 percent in 2004. She had been predicting 80 percent turnout this time. The percentage could increase as provisional ballots, overseas ballots and other outstanding votes are included during the official canvass in the coming weeks. But overall turnout still is expected to be lower than in 2004, leaving experts at a loss to explain it --...

    Fox News Live | 11/1/08
    According to Fox, 264,000 more Dems than Repubs have early voted in Colorado and 447,000 more Dems than Repubs have early voted in Florida. This was followed by a report that Dem judges were extending the voting hours to 6AM to 9PM in key states so that "everyone would have achance to do early voting." Without being decried a "racist," every_single_peron shown in early voting was African-American. The icing on the cake was a panel of "jorunalists" agreeing that, if the early/eastern states show a big Obama lead on 4 Nov, then it would be "negligent" not to announce that...

    Something is seriously off with the polling. Beyond the typical oversampling that most polls are doing, here is what puzzles me. WHY IS OBAMA EVEN GETTING HIGH 40s SUPPORT? 1. The youth vote has been the same as 2004. NO bump there 2. I can’t imagine seniors voting for Senor Obama, especially after he floods the doctors with 45 million new health insured 3. The Jewish American vote for Obama HAS to be less than what Kerry got. No matter how radical a Democrat you are, you owe a religious duty to the land God gave to you. These are...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — If the outcome of next week’s presidential election is close, this precariously balanced state could be the place where the two parties begin filing the inevitable lawsuits over voting irregularities, experts say. The battles could be over the rules for a recount, or how to deal with voters who were not added to the rolls even though they registered properly and on time. Lawyers could fight over how to count the paper ballots used when the electronic machines break down, or whether a judge was correct in deciding to keep certain polls open late. But the most...

    Acorn, the liberal "community organizing" group that claims it will deploy 15,000 get-out-the-vote workers on Election Day, can't stay out of the news.The FBI is investigating its voter registration efforts in several states, amid allegations that almost a third of the 1.3 million cards it turned in are invalid. And yesterday, a former employee of Acorn testified in a Pennsylvania state court that the group's quality-control efforts were "minimal or nonexistent" and largely window dressing. Anita MonCrief also says that Acorn was given lists of potential donors by several Democratic presidential campaigns, including that of Barack Obama, to troll for...

    Possible voter-fraud cases keep cropping up Wednesday, October 29, 2008 10:13 PM By Jill Riepenhoff THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH Examples of possible voter fraud in Ohio stretch from the farmlands to the West Coast. In Highland County, 95-year-old Mildred Meddock registered and voted for the first time in her life despite her advanced Alzheimer's disease. Her granddaughters learned of her newfound patriotism when they visited the nursing home where Meddock lives and saw an "I voted today" sticker on her clothing. Records show that Meddock registered Sept. 26 when two Highland County Board of Elections employees visited the home, Heartland of...

    Several Decatur County voters are concerned about problems with the voting machines at the Election Commission Office. Voters claim they tried to vote for McCain for President but the machine checked Obama instead. At least three voters encountered the problem when casting their early ballot on Saturday morning. Franklin Boroughs says he intended to vote for Republican but rather the computer had checked the Democratic candidate instead. Wanda and Barney Blasingim similarly said they tried to vote for McCain but the machine switched the vote. "I noticed the problem immediately," Wanda said Monday. She says she touched the "button" for...

    A former staffer for an affiliate of ACORN testified today that they were provided a "donor list" from the Barack Obama campaign. Anita Moncrief, a former Washington, D.C. staffer for Project Vote, which she described as a sister organization of ACORN, said her supervisor told her the list of campaign contributors came from the Obama campaign. Moncrief said she has a copy of a "development plan" that outlines how Obama contributors who had "maxed out" under federal contribution limits would be targeted to give to Project Vote, and that it was her job to identify such contributors.

    JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Mississippi's voter situation is hard to believe. Places like Madison County have over 123% more registered voters than people over the age of 18. Sue Sautermeister, First District Election Commissioner in Madison County, tried to purge the rolls, but ran into trouble when it was discovered it takes a vote of three of the five election commissioners and the purge cannot take place within 90 days of a federal election. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is the first to admit the situation with voter registration in this state is terrible. "It is terrible," he says. "Combined...
