EVIDENCE OF DEMOCRATIC VOTER FRAUD MOUNTING UP

Meet Andrew Spieles, a loyal Democrat who is going to spend the next 100 days in prison for being a loyal Democrat. Spieles is a 21-year-old student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

The loyal Democrat was an employee for the Registrar’s Office but was a loyal worker for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election season. During a registration drive for the Democratic Party, Spieles began submitting fake voter registration forms for dead people.

According to a report:

“‘On August 15, 2016, an employee of the Registrar’s Office contacted law enforcement after another employee in the office recognized a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County Judge,’ according to the Department of Justice. ‘The Registrar’s Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations. Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers’.”

“Spieles was working for the Democratic campaign during the voter registration drive, and ‘admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individuals from ‘walk sheets’ provided to him by the Virginia Democratic Party, fabricating a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet, and fabricating the social security numbers,’ the Justice Department wrote in a news release.”

Democrats continue to claim that there is no evidence of voter fraud. How many instances of voter fraud by Democrats will it take to convince anyone that not only has voter fraud nee rampant but that the vast majority of it has been done at the hands of Democrats?

Here are just a few accounts of Democratic voter fraud:

1) On August 6, 2011, it was reported that Attorney General Eric Holder, head of the Department of Justice, has been setting militant members of the New Black Panthers, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson free. Shabazz is the national head of the New Black Panthers and Jackson is a member of the Philadelphia Black Panthers and a Democratic Party official.

J. Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice attorney had worked in the Civil Rights Division where he had brought charges of violation of civil rights against two members of the New Black Panther group for voter intimidation. He had a strong case against the two men, but Attorney General Eric Holder refused to press the charges any further and both men were released and the case dropped.

It turns out that in 2006, then Sen. Barack Obama had marched alongside Shabazz and Jackson. Coincidence? Don’t think so.

2) On August 7, 2012, it was reported that election officials in Virginia decided not to further investigate a group that had sent partially completed voter registration cards to dead people, children, and pets. The Romney campaign had called for an investigation,

3) On September 7, 2012, it was reported that Project Veritas sent an undercover person into President Obama’s grassroots campaign group known as Organizing for America, headquarters in Houston, Texas. The agent explained that she was registered to vote in Florida and in Texas and wanted to vote twice to help Obama’s chance of winning re-election.

The staffer she spoke with, Stephanie Caballero, the Regional Field Director for OFA in Houston, is a salaried employee of the Democratic National Committee. In the course of two visits from the Veritas agent, Caballero helped her and encouraged her to vote in both states, clearly violations of federal election laws.

4) On November 7, 2012, it was reported that a couple from Forest Park showed up yesterday at the polls to vote just like they have ever since they turned 18. When it was their turn, they were both told that they had already voted via absentee ballot. The couple said that they have never voted absentee and wanted to know how this could happen.

Precinct officials told them that they could fill out a provisional ballot, which they did.

Before long, a number of other voters in the same precinct were told the same thing, that they had already voted via absentee ballots and that they also needed to fill out a provisional ballot. Eventually, voting officials said that the mistake was due to ‘human error’ and that anyone else in the same situation would likewise have to cast a provisional ballot. In Ohio, provisional ballots are not counted until 10 days after the election.

5) On November 19, 2012, it was reported during the early voting in Ohio, voters in one voting precinct found that when they selected Mitt Romney the voting machine gave the vote to Barack Obama. This happened on more than one occasion.

In Cleveland, 149 precincts out of a total of 1077 precincts in all of Cuyahoga County reported fewer than 10 votes for Mitt Romney. Statistically this is extremely rare and many experts suggest that this represents some sort of voter fraud.

In Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, the final vote was Barack Obama 420,953 to Mitt Romney’s 184,475 votes. Considering Obama won Ohio with less than a margin of 104,000 votes, it makes one question the accuracy and legitimacy of the county’s election system.

6) On October 25, 2012, it was reported about people voting in more than one state because their names were not removed from the state they previously lived in. Worse yet, states like Minnesota have a voucher voting where someone can vote purely on the testimony of someone who is on the voter registration roll.

7) On October 26, 2012, it was reported Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) was sworn in as a member of the U.S House of Representatives in January 1991. The former Mayor of Arlington, Virginia is nearing the end of his 11th term in Congress and seemed like a safe bet for re-election. That is until his son was caught on tape discussing how to commit voter fraud.

Pat Moran, Field Director for his father’s election campaign is a full-time paid employee of that campaign. He was approached by an undercover reporter for Veritas and asked how to could a couple of people get away with voting for 100 other people who supposedly were not going to vote. Pat Moran suggests they forge utility bills with names and addresses for the people as that should pass for identification on Election Day. At one point, he even seems to offer the aid of attorneys working for the Obama campaign.

8) On February 11, 2013, it was reported a Democratic poll worked in Cincinnati, Ohio who admits to voting twice for Obama. Not only did she vote twice, but so did her granddaughter. Melowese Richardson, a poll worker for 25 years, told the local news that she voted using an absentee ballot and then voted again on Election Day. Her excuse was that she wasn’t sure her absentee vote would get counted, so she voted a second time to make sure her vote for Obama counted. She also admits to sending in an absentee ballot for her granddaughter and voting for several other people. However, she is not alone, as the Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 reports of voter fraud in the Cincinnati area. They say they have nine witnesses so far in their investigation. Richardson claims she’s done nothing wrong although every poll worker knows that voting twice is a crime.

9) On April 29, 2013, it was reported State Rep. Dan Pabon (D-Denver) said that he is sponsoring a large piece of legislation to revamp Colorado’s election system at the request of the Colorado County Clerks Association. Part of that legislation would allow voters to register up to and including the day of election.

If Pabon gets his legislation passed allowing anyone to register the day of election, just think about what could happen. As we saw in the video that you don’t need ID to register, anyone wanting to commit voter fraud could go from precinct to precinct to precinct all day long, registering and voting under false names. One hundred people, could theoretically cast between 1,000 to 1,500 votes for the candidate(s) of their choice. In many elections, this is enough to secure the outcome of an election for anyone with enough connections or money to make it happen. Expand that further to 1,000 corrupt people who could cast between 10,000 and 15,000 votes for someone like their Democratic governor or presidential candidate.

10) On January 22, 2014, it was reported that Project Veritas has uncovered another case of widespread voter fraud and illegal campaigning by Democrats in Texas. The group known as Battleground Texas has ties to the old ACORN, the group caught in illegal activities and who employed Barack Obama as an attorney. Field Organizer Jennifer Longoria of Battleground Texas was caught on video describing how they go out to get people to register to vote. Then they take that information and enter the person’s name, address and phone number in their own database which is then used to call them to urge them to vote for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. When James O’Keefe of Project Veritas checked with the Texas Secretary of State, he was told that it is illegal to take personal information including telephone numbers off of voter registration forms.

11) On March 27, 2014, it was reported Judicial Watch is reporting that there are at least two states, Iowa and Colorado along with the District of Columbia that have more registered voters than adults 18 and over living in the states. And if the states don’t clean up their voter registration rolls, Judicial Watch will take legal action to get them to do so. According to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, states and municipalities are required to keep legitimate voter rolls.

Judicial Watch compared US Census data for 2010 and 2012 and compared population figures to the data from the US Election Assistance Commission. They discovered that the number of counties in Iowa with more registered voters than eligible residents had increased from 10 counties in 2010 to 24 counties in 2012. There is a total of 99 counties in Iowa which meant that going into the 2012 elections, that nearly 1 of every 4 counties had more registered voters than eligible adults. I don’t know which counties they are, but I would not be surprised if those 24 counties were among the 37 counties Obama won.

In Colorado, Judicial Watch discovered that the number of counties with more registered voters than eligible adults rose from 10 in 2010 to 22 counties in 2012. Colorado only has 64 counties, which means a little over 1 of every 3 counties had more voters than adults. Like in Iowa, I wonder how many of the 27 counties that Obama won were among the 22 that had more registered voters than eligible adults.

12) On November 4, 2014, it was reported there is an investigation being launched in North Carolina concerning Democratic campaign workers willing to help illegal aliens cast their ballots. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught one such Democratic campaign worker on video agreeing to help a supposed illegal vote.

When the video was made public, the North Carolina State Board of Elections launched an investigation into the allegations made by the video. Josh Lawson, a spokesman for the State Board of Elections said that they have asked Project Veritas for a full unedited video of the occurrence.

Lawson also stated that an internal state audit that compared voter registration records with databases from Homeland Security and the Department of Motor Vehicle revealed that over 1,400 non-citizens are registered to vote in North Carolina. At least 20 of those non-citizens have already cast early or absentee ballots and at least 226 of them have voted in precious elections.

13) On December 14, 2016, it was reported that two days into the Michigan recount, a federal judge stopped it, claiming that Stein had no grounds to ask for a recount since she received only 1% of the popular vote. The interesting aspect of the Michigan recount was that in those short two days, there was evidence discovered of Democratic voter fraud and votes counted up to 6 times, mostly in favor of Hillary Clinton.

These are just a few of the many documented incidence of voter fraud involving Democrats. To these add the fact that prior to the 2012 elections, the US Attorney General Eric Holder used the Justice Department to challenge and block every state’s attempts to clean up voter registration records. All states wanted to do was to remove documented dead people and non-citizens, but Holder blocked every effort to do so.

Prior to the 2016 elections, California and Oregon (both run by liberal Democrats) passed laws that allowed illegal aliens and other non-citizens to register to vote. with the new laws, all anyone had to do was obtain or renew a valid state driver’s license and they would be automatically registered to vote. It is estimated that California has more than 3 million illegal aliens living in the state and many of them have driver’s licenses.

There have been people convicted of first degree murder on less evidence than this and yet Democrats continue to claim that voter fraud does not exist and they continue to fight all of President Donald Trump’s efforts to look into the possibility of voter fraud.

If it were feasible to verify every single vote cast in the 2016 presidential election, it would not surprise me to see that Donald Trump not only won the Electoral vote but that he also substantially won the popular vote as well, solidifying his claim to the White House.

 

Colorado Voters De-Registering Before Rolls Turned Over to Election Integrity Commission – Dirty Democrat Fraud

 

TRUMP WAS RIGHT! NEW STUDY REVEALS UP TO 5.7 MILLION ILLEGALS VOTED IN ELECTION

A new study reveals that up to 5.7 million illegal immigrants were likely to have voted in the 2008 election, meaning Donald Trump was almost certainly right when he said this was the reason for him losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race.

After Trump made the claim that votes by millions of illegal immigrants cost him the popular vote, he was lambasted by the press, who blamed an Infowars story published on November 14 in which we reported that around 3 million illegals voted.

From Info Wars

Ever since then, Trump’s assertion that millions of illegals voted has been called a “fake news” conspiracy theory.

Back in January, the New York Times again called Trump’s claim a “lie,” however a new study shows that if anything we underestimated the number of illegals who voted.

“A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates,” reports the Washington Times.

Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team of researchers looked at data from a Harvard/YouGov study which includes a sample size of tens of thousands of voters, including non-citizens who admit they are not eligible to vote.

Agresti concluded that as many as 5.7 million illegals voted in 2008,a far higher figure than previously thought. In 2012, the figure was as high as 3.6 million.

“The details are technical, but the figure I calculated is based on a more conservative margin of sampling error and a methodology that I consider to be more accurate,” Mr. Agresti told The Washington Times.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million. If we take the 2008 figure and subtract that from her total, Trump would have easily won the popular vote.

Vice President Mike Pence is currently leading an investigation into voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election. If his findings replicate Agresti’s, the media is going to have egg on its face once again.

Ohio Secretary Of State Makes STUNNING Announcement Regarding Illegal Aliens In Their State

Liberals will tell you that voter fraud doesn’t exist despite a mountain of evidence to contradict that.

If you find a liberal that admits it exists, they will downplay the impact and claim it doesn’t matter if a few people vote who shouldn’t.

From Young Conservatives

Well, it does matter. Every vote should matter.

It looks like at least one state in the country is taking voter integrity seriously.

From The Daily Wire:

“Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced an investigation has uncovered that hundreds of non-US citizens are registered to vote in the state, and dozens of them voted illegally,” NBC News-Columbus reported Monday. “According to a release from Husted, 385 people who are not citizens of the United States are registered to vote in Ohio. Out of those, 82 voted in at least one election in the last year.”

Gee, that’s weird. I thought voter fraud was made up by racist Republicans…

Obviously, this is a relatively low number but why isn’t every vote taken seriously?

One person being cheated out of their right to vote or one vote cast by someone who shouldn’t vote is something to be concerned about.

Voter fraud, no matter the scale, is a problem.

A simple Google search will show you that this is an issue that is far more widespread than Democrats are letting on.

Props to Ohio for doing the right thing.

GOP Drops Hammer On Garcia’s Alleged “Well Intentioned” Voter Fraud

voter-fraud-2
By JAVIER MANJARRES

The Republican National Congressional Committee has its sights fixed on embattled Democratic Congressman Joe Garcia, who is currently caught up in an alleged voter fraud scandal, where fraudulent absentee ballot requests were linked back to his former Chief of Staff.

Congressman Joe Garcia must be officially having the worst week ever. Not only is Garcia facing an alleged voter fraud scandal, but his trusted friend and chief of staff resigned, and two of his staffers had their homes raided last Friday by investigators.-NRCC

No. I take that back. The NRCC is going for the jugular vein here, in an attempt to win back the Republican-leaning seat when former Congressman David Rivera, who got caught up in his own scandal, lost to Garcia in 2012.
The NRCC has laid out a pretty detailed up-to-date overview of the scandal, including a very well crafted video of Joe Garcia calling out scandals in a 2012 campaign commercial, and defending the alleged fraud as being “well intentioned attempt to maximize voter turn-out.”

The more information that becomes available from Congressman Joe Garcia about his relationship with the key players in this voter fraud scheme, the more shady and disturbing it all becomes. Florida families need to know what Congressman Garcia is trying to cover up and what his role in this fraudulent scandal really was.-NRCC

Dem congressman’s chief staffers busted in voter fraud scheme

by Michael DorstewitzJoe-Garcia

Top staffers of U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia of Miami Beach have been implicated in an elaborate and massive voter fraud scheme that reportedly occurred during the 2012 primary election. Garcia is a Democrat.

Rep. Joe Garcia — clueless. Photo credit: www.voxxi.com
Jeffery Garcia, the congressman’s chief of staff allegedly participated in a “sophisticated scheme to manipulate last year’s primary elections by submitting hundreds of fraudulent absentee-ballot requests,” the Miami Herald reported.

The chief of staff, who is not related to the congressman, also worked on the campaign of Rep. Patrick Murphy, another Democrat who narrowly defeated incumbent Allen West last year in a controversial election.

“I’m shocked and disappointed about this,” said Garcia, who added he was unaware of the scheme. “This is something that hit me from left field. Until today, I had no earthly idea this was going on.”

Also implicated were Giancarlo Sopo, the congressman’s communications director; and John Estes, his 2012 campaign manager.

The fraud, as it turns out, was never completed as election computers caught the scheme and threw up a red flag. Florida is a state requiring photo ID to cast a ballot in an election.

Garcia asked his “staff to fully cooperate with any investigation.”

He added, “I believe that while this was an ill-conceived effort, it was meant to expand voter access.”

That’s the scary part — it was meant to expand voter access. My question is, to whom was it meant to expand access? Dead people? felons? Out-of-state residents? Undocumented immigrants?

And that is a fundamental difference between Democrats and the GOP. Democrats would have anyone — with or without a heartbeat — cast a ballot. Republicans jealously cherish that right, so much so that they don’t want their vote diluted by those who have neither business nor right to cast a ballot.

No Voter Fraud? Former Democrat Officials on Trial For 2008 Fraud Enabling Obama Presidency

obama-dr-evil2By Eric Shawn

The trial is underway for a former Democratic official and a Board of Elections worker who are accused of being part of a plot that has raised questions over whether President Obama’s campaign — when he was a candidate in 2008 — submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the presidential primary ballot.

The two face charges of orchestrating an illegal scheme to fake the petitions that enabled then-candidates Obama, and Hillary Clinton, to qualify for the race in Indiana.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. faces multiple felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe is charged with nine felony forgery counts and one felony count of falsely making a petition of nomination. The proceedings began Monday in South Bend.

Morgan is accused of being the mastermind behind the plot, by allegedly ordering Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, has been accused of carrying out those orders by forging signatures on Obama’s petitions.

Two former Board of Elections officials have already pleaded guilty to charges related to the scheme and could testify against Morgan and Blythe.

Former board worker Beverly Shelton, who allegedly was assigned the task of forging the petitions for Hillary Clinton, pleaded guilty in March to charges of forgery and falsely making a petition. The board’s former Democratic head of voter registration, Pam Brunette, pleaded guilty in April to felony forgery, official misconduct, and falsifying a petition.

The alleged scheme was hatched in January of 2008, according to affidavits from investigators who cite former Board of Registration worker Lucas Burkett, who told them he was in on the plan at first, but then became uneasy and quit. He waited three years before telling authorities about it, but if revelations about any forgeries were raised during the election, the petitions could have been challenged during the contest. Any candidate who did not qualify with enough legitimate signatures at the time could have been bounced from the ballot.

The Indiana trial has raised questions about whether in 2008, candidate Obama actually submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified.

Under state law, presidential candidates need to qualify for the primary ballots with 500 signatures from each of the state’s nine congressional districts. Indiana election officials say that in St. Joseph County, which is the 2nd Congressional District, the Obama campaign qualified with 534 signatures; Clinton’s camp had 704.

Prosecutors say that in Obama’s case, nine of the petition pages were apparently forged. Each petition contains up to 10 names, making a possible total of 90 names, which, if faked, could have brought the Obama total below the legal limit required to qualify. Prosecutors say 13 Clinton petitions were apparently forged, meaning up to 130 possibly fake signatures. Even if 130 signatures had been challenged, it would have still left Clinton with enough signatures to meet the 500-person threshold.

An Indiana State Police investigator said in court papers that the agency examined the suspect Obama petitions and “selected names at random from each of the petition pages and contacted those people directly. We found at least one person (and often multiple people) from each page who confirmed that they had not signed” petitions “or given consent for their name and/or signature to appear.” The case was charged citing 20 forgeries — not the total number of possible fake entries — because that was considered a sufficient amount to prosecute.

Numerous voters told Fox News that they never signed the petitions.

“That’s not my signature,” Charity Rorie, a mother of four, told Fox News when showed the Obama petition with her name and signature. She said it “absolutely” was a fake.

Charity told Fox News that her husband’s entry was also a forgery, and that they have not been contacted by investigators or any authorities looking into the scandal.

“It’s scary, it’s shocking. It definitely is illegal. A lot of people have already lost faith in politics and the whole realm of politics, so that just solidifies our worries and concerns.”

Robert Hunter, Jr. said his name was faked, too.

“I did not sign for Barack Obama,” he told us. As he examined the Obama petition in his hands, Hunter pointed out that “I always put ‘Junior’ after my name, every time … there’s no ‘Junior’ there.”

Even a former Democratic Governor of Indiana, Joe Kernan, told Fox News that his name was forged.

The allegations were first uncovered by Indiana native and Yale University senior Ryan Nees, who wrote about the revelations for the political newsletter, Howey Politics Indiana.

“What’s worrisome about this scheme is that it wasn’t a single bad actor going rogue. Rather, four people were charged as co-conspirators, and two of the four have already pleaded guilty,” Nees told Fox News.

Nees believes that had the petitions been challenged during the presidential election, “it’s unlikely either candidate would have qualified for the ballot.”

He said the fraud was clearly evident, “because page after page of signatures are all in the same handwriting.” He noted that no one raised any red flags “because election workers in charge of verifying their validity were the same people faking the signatures.”

Both Morgan and Blythe have pleaded not guilty, and when approached by Fox News in 2011, Blythe refused to talk about the case.

Morgan’s attorney declined our request for an interview, and Blythe’s attorney has not responded to our efforts for comment.

The petition process is vital to candidates’ campaigns.

In the 2012 presidential race, Republican candidate Newt Gingrich was tripped up by that process in Virginia. He failed to qualify for the GOP primary ballot in that state, because authorities said hundreds of signatures on his campaign’s petitions were faked. A Gingrich campaign worker has pleaded guilty, and another still faces charges.

Petition fraud also cost Michigan Republican Rep. Thaddeus McCotter his public office. McCotter, who also ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, has accused former campaign workers of intentionally faking his congressional primary race petition signatures. The result was that McCotter did not submit the legal number of signatures needed to qualify for the ballot, and that failure forced him to resign his congressional seat last July. While McCotter was not implicated in any wrongdoing, two former campaign aides pleaded no contest to criminal charges, and one pleaded guilty.

Nothing But Down-side to Top-Two Primaries

There was a strong push in the last Arizona election cycle to disenfranchise political parties by turning the Arizona Primary election into a “round one general election” in which there would be a single ballot with all candidates listed on it without regard to party affiliation, but only the top two vote-getters from the Primary would be on the General Election ballot.  Some very good political thinkers were involved at least in conceptualizing this ballot proposition.  The proposition failed by a two to one margin

military voting

The main thing the proposition was designed to do was to give independents (voters not affiliated with any party) a greater say in the primary.  There are certain good things about today’s party system; it allows people with common political views to identify their positions on issues (platform) and to select candidates who will run for office in the general election.  The founding fathers were not fond of political parties; but parties in their times were specific special interest factions such as merchants, or lawyers, or veterans, or bankers, or planters.  The political parties spoken of by Washington and his contemporaries were what we would now call lobbyists or political action committees (PACs).

Today’s parties are made up of voters with diverse professions, economic stations, races, educational levels, and lifestyle, and serve primarily as a vetting process for candidate selection. party) more say in Primary elections.  To me that alone doesn’t make any sense because primary elections are elections in which political parties nominate their candidates.  Independents are independents because they don’t support party politics.  Arizona already does something that I think is very bad in that they allow independents to vote in one primary of any party they wish. To me nobody except party members should have a say in who the party nominates..  I’m glad it did because I think it was a very bad idea.

Even minor parties have played a significant role in shaping our politics.  By presenting their views to the public they have caused the two major parties to adjust to attract those voters.  Two examples are the Socialist Party who originated the idea of vast social programs and redistribution of wealth, and the Libertarian Party who has pushed for a more stringent compliance with the constitution and lest government involvement in the lives of citizens.  Both of these minor parties have never reached the number of supporters needed to enact their policies, but the Democrats have adapted many of the aims of the Socialist Party, and the Republicans have adjusted to the right in response to the ideas of the Libertarian Party.

One problem with a top two primary is that it does not give the voter more choices but limits them to only two in the general election.  A second problem is that in a district in which one party dominates, no other party has a chance to make it on the ballot, both general candidates could be from the same party.  It would virtually illuminate all minor party candidates from ever getting on a general ballot.

Many independents say there is no difference between the two parties; however, even the most cursory review of their stand on issues reveals that as false. The main causes of independent discontent with the two major parties can be categorized as: 1) They are all professional politicians who are mostly concerned with feathering their own nest and being reelected, and 2) They can’t work together to get anything done.

I think Item one is partly true; I do believe that many people in congress have a genuine desire to do what’s right, but their view may differ from that of many of their voters.  They have elevated themselves to a special class that is paid much more than the average voter, has amazing perks and benefits, and gives them special exceptions to things the rest of us live with every day.  When congress was first given an annual salary in 1855 it was $3000; comparing the consumer price index of 1855 to 2012, that equates to under $12,000 per year in today’s dollar.  Then, being in Congress was a part time job, they spent a couple of months a year mostly approving a budget.

This brings us to item two.  As the founders intended, the federal government dealt with relatively few departments and programs, they didn’t enact many new laws every year, they took care of business and got back their farm, store, law officer, parsonage, etc.  For the last 80 years congress has gotten along too well, they have passed way to many laws, creating way too much government, and spending way too much public revenue.  Any congress that refuses to raise expenditures or increase taxes is a good congress.  Democrats want to keep using the public revenue to buy votes, and Republics want to reverse that process.  In a nutshell that is the difference between the two parties.  I will vote for the senator or representative who refuses to go along with government programs, trillion dollar deficits, and forever increasing taxes.  A “do-nothing” congress is better than a “do-something” congress unless the something being done is cutting spending, cutting government, and cutting taxes.

So since the main accusation is that Democrats and Republicans are the same, you better look again.  And if you want to save the country you better hope the “do-nothings” outnumber the “do-everythings”.

HERE IS WHY THE RNC HAS BEEN SO SILENT ABOUT RAMPANT VOTER FRAUD

BY SONYA SASSER
voter-fraud-obama-democrats-change-election-acorn-political-poster-1260763761
Since before November’s election, many of us have been kicking and hollering about the widespread voter fraud reported, but to no avail.

First, we had complaints from voters in at least six states that their intended votes for Mitt Romney on electronic touchscreen voting machines came up as votes for President Barack Obama

Next we had reports of noncitizens being pressured by unions to register and vote in Nevada.
Then we had a number of voters across the country in a bit of a shock when they were told by poll workers on Election Day they had already voted, even though they hadn’t. At the same time, others bragged about voting multiple times on Twitter.
Next, we had reports of Obama oddly getting over 99% of the vote in certain precincts on Election Day. In fact, there were a substantial number of precincts where Mitt Romney got exactly zero votes. This doesn’t make any sense.
In addition to all these reports, True the Vote also documented:

More than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet remain on the rolls nation-wide.
There are over 1.8 million dead voters still eligible on the rolls across the country.
More than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state.
Maryland affiliates of True the Vote uncovered cases of people registering and voting after their respective deaths.
12 Indiana counties have more registered voters than residents.
The Ohio Secretary of State admitted that multiple Ohio counties have more registered voters than residents.
Federal records showed 160 counties in 19 states have over 100 percent voter registration.
The Florida New Majority Education Fund, Democratic Party of Florida and the National Council of La Raza are currently under investigation for alleged voter registration fraud.
Yet despite all these reports, crickets still seem to be chirping at the Republican National Committee (RNC).

HERE’S WHY…

In the 1982 consent decree, the Republican Party made an agreement effectively barring the RNC from “engag[ing] and assist(ing) in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.” They basically made an agreement with the Democratic Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.

The reason for the 1982 consent decree was because during the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election,According to The Judicial View:

“The RNC allegedly created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters and, then, including individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls. The RNC also allegedly enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting with National Ballot Security Task Force armbands. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.”

To settle the lawsuit, the RNC and RSC entered into the 1982 consent decree. According to True the Vote, the decree roughly states today:

▪ The RNC may only be sued by the DNC for enforcement issues;

▪ Any activity to fight voter fraud must be submitted to the courts for a 10-day preclearance process (think Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act);

▪ Voter fraud prevention or “Ballot Security” is defined as “any program aimed at combating voter fraud by preventing potential voters from registering to vote or casting a ballot;”

▪ Poll watching is defined as “stationing individuals at polling stations to observe the voting process and report irregularities unrelated to voter fraud to duly-appointed state officials” (Emphasis ours);

▪ The Decree expires December 1, 2017 – with detailed caveats.

True the Vote continues:

“After the initial agreement, the RNC tried multiple attempts to get out of the deal, amid new evidence of fraudulent voting activities and new law. Each time, however, the federal courts denied the request and ceded little room for adjusting the agreement. Though this agreement only applies to the national parties, it effectively squashes any attempt at a coordinated effort for election integrity.”

True the Vote also explains the two glaring issues with this consent decree:

First, the decree effectively robs poll watchers (and the ballot stakeholders that put them there) of their most important function: spotting and neutralizing attempted voter fraud. Indeed, poll watchers will mostly make note of procedural errors that could have negative impacts on voters. However, poll watchers also improve overall faith in the system when electors know that ALL of the rules are being enforced.
Second, the definition of “Ballot Security” sets an unreasonably high, yet undefined bar for what are acceptable anti-voter fraud operations. If the RNC wanted to execute a plan that prevented non-citizens from registering and voting, the courts would basically tell them to not press their luck. The RNC is effectively jammed: choosing between developing a system that the federal court and the DNC agree would be flawless or spending time and energy on developing issue ideas or get out the vote efforts. Time and money being finite, the RNC picks GOTV over “Ballot Security.”
Quite frankly, the whole thing is a mess! The Democrats can basically commit voter fraud and get away with it — without the RNC ever stepping in to do anything about it.

However, in a phone interview with Catherine Engelbrecht from True the Vote, she said, “There are some important points that need to be made though — the main one being that the 1982 consent decree only effects actions of the national party, not state or local which is where elections and ballot security should be focused anyway.”-

In other words, the solution to this problem is YOU. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 in particular, empowers all of us to fight for clean registrations and fair elections in our own communities:
