IT WILL TAKE A MUSHROON CLOUD OVER AN AMERICAN CITY BEFORE THE OBAMUNISTAS WAKE UP.
Tuesday, December 01, 2009
RAN..DOM thoughts on the passing scene:
"No one likes to admit having been played for a fool. So it will probably take a mushroom cloud over some American city before some Obama supporters wake up. Even so, the true believers among the survivors will probably say that this was all George Bush’s fault."
Sometimes we seem like people on a pleasure boat drifting down the Niagara river, unaware that there are waterfalls up ahead. I don’t know what people think is going to happen when a nation that already sponsors international terrorism has nuclear bombs to give to terrorists around the world.
Since this is an era when many people are concerned about “fairness” and “social justice,” what is your “fair share” of what someone else has worked for?
Here is a math problem for you: Assume that the legislation establishing government control of medical care is passed and that it “brings down the cost of medical care.” You pay $500 a year less for your medical care, but the new costs put on employers is passed on to consumers, so that you pay $300 a year more for groceries and $200 a year more for gasoline, while the new mandates put on insurance companies raise your premiums by $300 a year, how much money have you saved?
I seldom read fiction— and I tend to regard autobiographies as fiction.
In response to news of President Obama receiving the Nobel Prize for peace, an e-mail from a reader recalled a black classmate’s comments upon graduating from high school many years ago. When asked to list the advantages and disadvantages of being black, the black student facetiously listed as an advantage “being praised for infinitesimal accomplishments.”
Many colleges claim that they develop “leaders.” All too often, that means turning out graduates who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do. There are already too many people like that, and they are a menace to everyone else’s freedom.
Some people are so busy being clever that they don’t have time enough to be wise.
No one likes to admit having been played for a fool. So it will probably take a mushroom cloud over some American city before some Obama supporters wake up. Even so, the true believers among the survivors will probably say that this was all George Bush’s fault.
Stepping beyond your competence can be like stepping off a cliff. Too many people with brilliance and talent within some field do not realize how ignorant— or, worse yet, misinformed— they are when talking like philosopher-kings about other things.
There has probably never before been as drastic a decline in the quality of vice presidents as there has been when Cheney was replaced by Joe Biden. Yet the New York Times is lionizing Biden as a wise counselor to President Obama.
When you support the liberal agenda, that makes you brilliant ex-officio in the media, whether or not you are vice president— and whether or not you have even common sense.
Government pressures on mortgage lenders to accept less than the full amount they are owed may win votes for politicians, since there are far more borrowers than lenders. But how much future lending can be expected when the lenders know that politicians are ready to intervene at any time to prevent them from getting their money back?
Some people think that the Obama administration is going to get rid of Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, making him the scapegoat for its economics failures. This would be consistent with the President’s acting as if the people under him are not carrying out his policies. But if they get rid of Geithner too early, that will not help if things still do not get better after he is gone and before the 2010 elections.
People who are urging us to do things to win the approval of other countries seem to put an excessive value on other country’s approval, as distinguished from their respect that we can lose by such bowing to “world opinion.” Do the world champion New York Yankees try to curry favor with teams that are also-rans?

MOTHER OF ALL SCANDALS - Bachmann: ACORN could regulate the financial sector.
BELIEVE OR NOT!!!
ACORN UNO DE LOS PRINCIPALES RESPONSABLES DE LA DEBACLE FINANCIERA!!!!
The Hill ^ | 12/09/09 | Jordan Fabian
OBAMA ES ACORN - ACORN ES OBAMA - ACORN ES UNA EMPRESA CRIMINAL DE FRENTE COMUNISTA. OBAMA PROMETIO A ACORN QUE ELLOS DECIDIRIAN SU AGENDA DE GOBIERNO!!!!
The embattled community group ACORN could help regulate the financial services industry under new financial regulatory reforms, said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Wednesday.
Bachmann, a consistent opponent of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), said that an amendment given in the House Financial Services Committee could allow the group to sit on an advisory panel that monitors the regulations.
“ACORN may have a seat at the table being on the oversight committee regulating the financial services industry of the United States,” Bachmann said at a press conference. “And that would be a cruel joke.”
Bachmann’s remarks come as House Financial Services Committee chairman Barney Frank’s (D-Mass.) regulatory reform bill is set to be brought to a floor vote this week.
The amendment offered by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) created Consumer Financial Protection Oversight Board that would need to include five members from the “fields of consumer protection, fair lending and civil rights, representatives of depository institutions that primarily serve under-served communities or representatives of communities that have been significantly impacted by higher-priced mortgage loans.”
The panel does not have the power to create policy but can recommend policies to the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
Bachmann argued that this provision could allow ACORN to participate on the board. ACORN was temporarily stripped of its federal funding by Congress in September after two conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute filmed ACORN employees offering them financial advice.
The Minnesota congresswoman said she would offer an amendment negating the Waters language. She requested a provision be added to the omnibus appropriations bill that would extend the funding ban to Sept. 30, 2010.
Bachmann previously offered an amendment to the Financial Services Committee version that would bar ACORN-like groups from sitting on a separate advisory panel. Her amendment was approved by the panel. Waters’ amendment was also included in the final bill.

It should be pretty obvious that President Obama and his Dem-run congress want no part of what most of America is screaming for: A free republic with a smaller government footprint not the enormous one currently stomping anyone in its path.
According to Rasmussen Polls, 71% of voters say they are angry at the government and 46% describe themselves as very angry.
Reversals from the Obama 2008 juggernaut were huge in Virginia and leftist New Jersey , yet the Dems in charge don’t care. The leaders will knowingly sacrifice their own Dem Reps and Senators in upcoming races as long as it doesn’t personally affect them and they’re confident they can still eke out a majority.
Dems are about to pass legislation their constituents are overwhelmingly against. Rasmussen Polls
show 53% of voters are against Obamacare while 62% object to single payer government HC
takeover, placed either by hook or trigger in the Senate and House plans.
Then there’s the Cap and Trade blackmail game being played by the EPA set to dictate carbon
dioxide as congress and Obamaites pull the strings, based on the global warming scam.
Better legislate or the EPA will kill the economy! The Heritage foundation predicts the loss of
800,000 jobs and $7 Trillion in lost GNP by 2029 if the EPA is allowed to wreck the economy.
Two days ago, the Gallup poll revealed a 47% voter approval for President Obama, the week after
he received an upward tic for belatedly committing 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan . Just 30% of
voters think the country is going in the right direction. Twenty percent of voters are in favor of
impeaching Barrack Obama!
The rating showed Obama to be the most unpopular president since WW2 at this time in his first
A Public Policy Poll reveals 44% of voters
would rather have Bush than Obama
Obama is leaking voters from almost everywhere, independents, RINOS and moderate Dems.
While his secular and black base remain intact, even that most loyal of groups is fraying, threatening
to unravel. The Afghanistan surge caused crucial support stress amongst the progressives as codified
by Michael Moore’s letter in opposition to the war and threat of abandonment to Obama.
Black leaders from Jesse Jackson, Representative John Conyers, the President and Founder of the
Black Chamber of Commerce Harry C. Alford and the Congressional Black Caucus are sounding off
Referring to the continued bank bailouts by the Obama Administration Jackson opined: “On
the black and brown side is where the water came in the boat…A rising tide will not lift
those boats stuck at the bottom…”
Conyers, 80, and the second longest serving Representative in the House, said the President
called and asked him to “…stop demeaning him…” mainly on his objections to Obama’s
escalation of the Afghanistan war and his neglect in killing the Patriot Act.
Alford wants to know why the president is ignoring small businesses owned by blacks who
employ other blacks. He notes that black unemployment is 90% higher than the rest of the
The Congressional Black Caucus recently complained to Obama about his neglect for the
black community. Representative Barbara Lee pointed out that 24% of blacks live in
poverty and are 55% more likely to be unemployed than whites.
Apparently Obama’s love affair with unions in general and Andy Stern and his SEIU thugs are much
higher on the political food chain than poor blacks. So much for the savior who was to pay off black
mortgages, put poor blacks into green cars and find them jobs.
You see, Obama is aligned with SEIU because he likes the fact that they find jobs for illegals from all
over the world (not just Mexico) right here in the good ole’ USA. This meets the universal ambitions
of Barack. Gee, wonder which segment of the population those jobs compete with, Representative
While this is happening, the local chapter of the NAACP hasn’t uttered a syllable about what’s
happening to blacks, at least none that I’ve seen. They are more concerned about attacking me for
justly pointing out that fanatics in Islam have hijacked that religion. Maybe they’re confused about
what their name stands for.
Time to send the Barackocrats to the unemployment lines. 2010 elections are a mere 10 months
away. 2012 is getting closer and closer.
Americans you’ll have your chance to topple this Socialist/Marxist aristocracy currently trying to
usurp your country.
Don’t ever be fooled again.

ACORN’s New Shell - The Democrats’ money-and-muscle operation is rebranding, not disbanding.
ACORN is not dissolving. But some of its local affiliates, in an effort to suggest they’re cutting ties with the organization, are giving themselves new names. The reason is money: ACORN cites a string of “vicious right-wing attacks” — and here I doff the purple pimp hat to James O’Keefe — that have made it hard for them to shake down their usual banker benefactors and nonprofit patrons.
This is nothing new. The national organization itself was considering a name change back in November, according to this internal memo, in which ACORN’s leaders cite one single overriding concern: money. “Raising money is much harder now, if we do it under the name ACORN,” the memo says. “Some foundations are still will [sic] to fund us, more are not.”
ACORN isn’t the first gang of riff-raff to discover that there’s lots of money to be made at the intersection of politics and poverty — that was part of the original mafia’s business model, too — but you really have to dig into the organization’s workings, its hundreds of bank accounts, its shell organizations and affiliates, its millions of dollars in cash and real estate, its bank stock, and its consulting company, to appreciate exactly how central money-making is to ACORN.
And these folks are good at making money. Jamie Dimon, the JPMorgan Chase CEO identified by the New York Times as “Obama’s favorite banker,” saw his bank’s charitable foundation give ACORN $1 million in 2007 alone, not counting additional grants to something called the “ACORN Institute.”
ACORN’s housing operations have helped themselves to a generous slice of the profits generated by all that subprime slime, marketing loans to low-income borrowers. Bank of America, Citigroup — many names from the rogue’s gallery of TARP-bailout recipients — have contributed to the ACORN gravy train.
Congressional investigators were surprised to learn that much of ACORN is not even legally a nonprofit: It pays corporate income taxes, though investigators say that it seems to have tried to dodge state taxes by claiming to be a tax-exempt organization. And the churn between ACORN’s nonprofit, for-profit, and political-advocacy arms is substantial. There’s a lot of cash flying around in ACORN’s world: Louisiana’s Democratic attorney general, David Caldwell, estimates that the organization has at least $20 million in cash and $10 million worth of real estate.
The Louisiana prosecutors investigating ACORN also suggest that there are really three national ACORN factions — New York City, Washington, and New Orleans — with national CEO Bertha Lewis, a product of the New York faction, having “forcefully taken control over all ACORN accounts and . . . trying to consolidate whatever assets exist.” If New York ACORN is getting territorial about the checkbook — even as its tainted brand imperils the fundraising efforts of local chapters — you can bet that has played a role in locals’ decisions to assert their independence.
There’s some precedent for these ACORN name games. The Service Employees International Union, which is in effect a branch of ACORN, started to get itchy after the O’Keefe investigations came out. Two SEIU locals were directly run by ACORN: Local 100 and Local 880. Local 100, feeling the PR heat, decided to disaffiliate from SEIU and join the United Labor Unions instead.
But Rep. Darrell Issa’s congressional report casts some doubt on how meaningful an action that was: “Local 100’s website still displays the SEIU logo . . . and [Local 100] is still listed on the SEIU website as an affiliate, even though it has not registered as a corporation with the State of Louisiana. In fact, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State, the United Labor Unions, the union that Local 100 supposedly returned to, had its charter revoked in 1998. . . . Based on tax records, it appears that Local 100 is still a member of SEIU and ACORN.” That’s a congressional report, not some kid in a pimp suit with a hidden camera.
If you want to see whether ACORN is really changing its ways, check to see whether the signatories to those local ACORN bank accounts are changing. When it comes to ACORN, the money is the organization, and the name is just the name.
ACORN in Brooklyn was renamed New York Communities for Change. This move came after the O’Keefe videos inspired an investigation by Brooklyn district attorney Charles Hynes. The group also is tied to an absentee-ballot-fraud case and an investigation into violations of New York campaign-finance laws. A good time for a change, then. But the change is purely cosmetic: Even the board members are the same, according to the New York Post. You can bet the bank balances have been maintained every bit as carefully as the makeup of the management.
Of all the frauds that ACORN has been implicated in, none has been so transparent as the fraudulent reinvention now under way.

Subprime Mortgage Crisis Hits Whorehouses
It looks like Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes is on track to win another endorsement from ACORN!
This week, Hynes announced that "no criminality has been found" after his investigation of the videotapes made by investigative journalists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, which show ACORN employees counseling the pair on getting a mortgage for a house of prostitution.
(They got a choice of government loans: Phat Fannie Mae, Prince Freddie Mac or Barney Fresh Daddy Frank ... aka "Sir Fix-A-Lot."
I'm just glad to know that Hynes conducted a thorough "investigation" first. Who did he have screen the videotapes, Gov. Paterson?
If his investigators had actually watched the videotapes, they would have found ACORN employees apparently advising a pimp and prostitute on how to defraud mortgage lenders, deposit prostitution money in a bank, hide money from the government and avoid detection while running a whorehouse with teenage girls from El Salvador.
I'm not a lawyer -- oh, wait, yes, I am -- but I count approximately a half-dozen state law crimes being discussed on those tapes, from money laundering to advancing prostitution.
In a "Eureka" moment, ACORN Employee-of-the-Month Volda Albert identifies for O'Keefe and Giles the problem they had been having getting a mortgage:
Albert: Um, is it legalized? Is prostitution legalized in New York state?
O'Keefe: It's not. It's not, unfortunately.
Albert: Well see, that's your problem
As ACORN employee Milagros Rivera said, "You can't say what you do for a living because of the law." But displaying ACORN's can-do attitude, she explained: "Honest is not going to get you a house."
ACORN employees helped concoct a scheme to hide from the lender the source of O'Keefe and Giles' down payment money. Albert suggested that O'Keefe "pay a down payment -- or (Giles) can transfer to somebody else, who is not in that business ... a close friend, then (Giles) can transfer that, and then he can give you, like, a gift to purchase."
Under New York law, hiding the true source of down payment money from a lender constitutes mortgage fraud. Also, using the proceeds of criminal conduct in any banking transaction is money laundering.
Does anybody need a flow chart at this point, or should I continue?
To help Giles hide her income from turning tricks, ACORN employee Albert advised Giles to open two banking accounts, depositing no more than $500 per week in each one. (This would not only enable her to conceal her illegal earnings, it would also qualify her for free checking.)
But Albert's most inspired idea was that Giles get a "house with a backyard. You get a tin can ... and bury (your money) down in there, and you put the money right in, and you put grass over it, and you don't tell a single soul but yourself where it is."
Back when I was in Louisiana, we advised people to put their illegal money in the freezer, but that didn't work out so well. And I guess putting your money in a mattress isn't advisable if you live in a whorehouse.
Anyway, Albert was particularly detailed on the tin-can-in-the-backyard investment plan: "Keep thinking: 'I have a yard. I have a house.' You gotta start coming out with, like, plants and you start doing -- so it won't be suspicious. You start buying plants for the backyard in pots and what have you, and you mark a spot."
She later told Giles: "You are not paying Social Security, so you'll have society, all right? You are not getting a pension, so you need to save that money for in later years." ACORN: Helping Plan Your Financial Future.
If only shady lawyers advised clients to bury money in cans in their backyards, instead of putting it in tax shelters, we wouldn't have all those attorneys clogging up prison cells!
The ACORN employees also stressed that Giles should do nothing to attract attention to her prostitution money. Albert said: "You can buy a decent car for yourself, no big fancy thing to attract people, all right?"
In Albert's defense, this could have been common etiquette advice. No one likes a showy hooker.
Even after Giles explained her plan to house a "slew" of 13-, 14- and 15-year-old girls from El Salvador for her prostitution business, Rivera simply responded: "So you guys ready to schedule that (mortgage application) for the summer?"
Rivera clearly missed her calling -- she should be pushing vacation time shares in Boca Raton beach condos.
Under New York law, a person is guilty of advancing prostitution if he: "knowingly ... aids a person to commit or engage in prostitution (or) ... engages in any other conduct designed to institute, aid or facilitate an act or enterprise of prostitution."
It is a class D felony (up to seven years in prison) if the prostitute is under 19 years old -- as the ACORN employees knew Giles was -- and a class C felony (up to 15 years in prison) if the prostitute is under 16 years old -- as Giles stated the El Salvadoran girls were. (And if she's under 15 years old, Eliot Spitzer may be involved.)
If none of the advice given by ACORN on those videotapes constitutes conspiracy or aiding or abetting a crime, see this column next week for my opus: "10 Detailed Plans to Kill George Soros and Why This Might Be Right for You."

President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 46 percent in the latest Gallup poll
President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 46 percent in the latest Gallup poll.
Obama's numbers are even lower in the Rasmussen Reports, which shows his rating at 44 percent.
The bad news comes as the president attempts to rally wary congressional Democrats around health care reform in a yearlong debate that by all accounts has entered its final stage.
Many Democrats are reluctant about the president's plan to push health care across the goal line with the help of reconciliation, an unusual budgetary maneuver that avoids a GOP filibuster, allowing Congress to pass and adjust the Senate's bill with a simple majority in the Senate.
Some Democrats fear voters will punish them at the polls in November's midterm elections if they pass a partisan bill that Republicans have steadfastly opposed.
The new job approval ratings for the president could further worry Democrats up for re-election who see no upside in having an increasingly unpopular president stump for them.
On the other hand, if the president's signature initiative fails, his entire legislative agenda is in jeopardy -- including climate change, education reform and immigration overhaul -- as a loss would be expected to embolden the Republican opposition and harden political gridlock.

48 Percent for Obama, 46 Percent For... George W. Bush?!?
EN SEIS MESES MAS EL 80% DEL PUEBLO VA A AÑORAR POR EL REGRESO DE BUSH!!!
Fascinating numbers from Public Policy Polling: “Americans are now pretty evenly divided about whether they would rather have Barack Obama or George W. Bush in the White House. 48% prefer Obama while 46% say they would rather have the old President back. Bush had atrocious approval ratings for his final few years in office, particularly because he lost a lot of support from Republicans and conservative leaning independents... These numbers suggest some peril for Democrats in making Bush a focus of their messaging this fall. A lot of folks who contributed to the former President’s low level of popularity now like Obama even less.”

Here we go again. Desperation plus the by-any-means-necessary credo plus a nationwide force of Alinsky avengers equals another recipe for voter fraud.
In Colorado, it’s Common Cause of Colorado, Mi Familia Vota Education Fund and the Service Employees International Uni... caught in an apparent scheme to foist some 6,000 shady voter registrations on the state:
A federal judge declined to force the secretary of state to reactivate approximately 6,000 new voters whose registrations were canceled under Colorado’s 20-day rule.
In a decision issued Monday, Senior U.S. District Judge John L. Kane denied a motion for a preliminary injunction that was requested by several labor and voting-rights groups.
When a new voter registers in Colorado, the secretary of state mails a nonforwardable notice of disposition that the voter’s registration has been received. If the notice comes back undeliverable in the mail, then clerks deem the voter’s registration inactive within 20 days.
Melody Mirbaba, an assistant attorney general, argued that the 20-day rule is designed to stop voter fraud and duplicate registrations.
In Arizona, it’s illegal alien amnesty-supporting, SEIU-tied Mi Familia Vota again and One Vote Arizona submitting massive, last-minute voter registrations. The race between rocket scientist Ruth McClung and open-borders radical Raul Grijalva is down to the wire. Maria Carvajal at Publius Pundit reports:
The Yuma Sun is reporting that two organizations — Mi Familia Vota and One Vote Arizona — submitted more than 3000 voter registrations in Yuma County, and more than 20,000 voters statewide. Even more, they have signed up 43,000 people statewide for the permanent early voter list.
What they didn’t tell you is that voter fraud on a massive scale could be taking place, ostensibly to help Raul Grijalva keep the congressional seat he holds by stealing the election.
Here’s what the article doesn’t tell you, by a source in the Yuma County Recorder’s Office:
* These 3000 voter registration forms were all dropped off at once by the one group on the deadline to turn in voter registration forms.
* Almost all of the registrations were for the Democratic Party, a statistical improbability at best.
* Today, these same 3000 newly registered voters — as a group — had papers dropped off at the Yuma Recorder’s office requesting to be signed up for the permanent early voters list… which means the ballots will be mailed early, with no accountability.
* The Yuma Recorder’s office is checking the voter registration forms and have found that already more than 65% of them are invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc.
Now, the question is: is voter fraud taking place in Yuma County… and is it taking place on an even bigger scale in Pima County?
So far, the partisan Democrat in charge of the Pima County Recorder’s Office, F. Ann Rodriguez, has been completely silent about any such activity, though certainly even just a few thousand votes could change the outcome of the race between rocket scientist Ruth McClung and boycotter Raul Grijalva.
In Washington state, it’s illegal alien amnesty-supporting OneAmerica Votes sending illegal alien canvassers out to drum up votes:
When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters’ doors, she’s not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally.
She knows it’s a risk to advertise this fact to strangers — but it’s one worth taking in what she sees as a crucial election.
The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers — many of them illegal immigrants — canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-and-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi.
Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can’t vote.
“Immigrants really do matter,” Jayapal said. “If we can’t vote ourselves, we’re gonna knock on doors or get family members to vote.”
In Florida, it’s suspected absentee ballot fraud — from within a city commissioner’s office:
When police raided Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry’s office this week and seized his computer, they say they discovered evidence of what election experts say has become a rampant, largely ignored and troubling issue in Florida — the widespread abuse of absentee ballots.
Police say Henry’s computer was used to obtain dozens of absentee ballots prior to the city’s Aug. 24 elections, in which he was re-elected.
The Daytona Beach probe started when an elections supervisor noticed that as many as 90 absentee ballots had been requested from two e-mail addresses, and that they came from a single computer. (It is illegal in Florida for anyone other than a family member to help in requesting an absentee ballot.)
Volusia County Election Supervisor Ann McFall said she grew suspicious “because 40 requests arrived in one batch on the night of Aug. 6, and another 15 the next day.
“The absentee ballots had no phone numbers on them, and my first concern was to get them in compliance. I emailed the sender and when I got no response checked with the Daytona Beach clerk, because all the requests were from Zone 5 and he didn’t recognize the address. Then I handed it over to the sheriff’s office,” she said.
Police tracked the computer to the office of Henry, the city commissioner from Zone 5, who was running for re-election — and who easily defeated his two opponents with 65 per cent of the vote.
In New York, FNC’s Eric Shawn reports on another absentee ballot scheme implicating the ACORN-tied Working Family Party and a ring of Democrat offici...:
There are various allegations of possible voter fraud across the country, against both parties, but nowhere does there seem to be a more unusual case than in Troy, New York.
A special prosecutor investigating allegations of voter fraud, Trey Smith, is collecting DNA from the majority of the city council…all Democrats. Five city councilmen, including the council president, as well as four other city and county public officials and political operatives, have been ordered to or have had their saliva swabbed for DNA samples to compare to absentee ballots and absentee ballot applications that were allegedly forged.
The investigation centers on what has been called “a massive voter fraud scheme,” that involved absentee ballots for the Working Families Party, in September 2009. It has been alleged that Democrats tried to steal the primary election for city council and county legislature, by forging absentee ballots and ballot applications to ensure that their candidates also won the Working Families Party primary line.
‘No comment,” is what Democratic Council member Gary Galuski told us, as well as several other public officials who are under investigation.
In Texas, citizen watchdogs have joined True the Vote to monitor and strike back against election fraud in Harris County:
Talk about denial! A group of liberal activists is making the media rounds, assuring reporters and editors that election fraud is a fairy tale. Nothing serious, they assert, nothing to see here. Too bad for them that citizens in Houston, energized by the Tea Party movement, have formed a group called True the Vote. Their hard work has demonstrated that, in some parts of the country at least, our election system is still infested with problems.
True the Vote is composed entirely of volunteers — hundreds of them. They have pored over election records in Harris County, Texas, looking for signs of fraud. And they have found plenty. Indeed, their initial research into only a very small portion of the voter registration records has led them to ask the U.S. Justice Department’s Voting Section to conduct a federal investigation.
In a letter asking for an official inquiry, True the Vote discusses potential widespread forgery in voter application forms. For instance, it seems from the applications that someone suspiciously signs the letter “J” with a quirky “3” inside the loop. The “3” shows up in multiple signatures for different voters with the names Jenard, Jamark, Jamarcus, and Jones.
True the Vote reports that at least four noncitizens have been registered to vote in Harris County. The group provided Justice with the actual voter registration forms where applicants marked “NO” to the question: “Are you a U.S. Citizen?” The group also provided the voter registration numbers of these confessed noncitizens. Yes, astonishingly, Harris County registered them to vote anyway. They are now on the rolls and able to participate in the upcoming midterm elections.
The Help America Vote Act of 2002 was supposed to stop this from happening. But this federal legislation is only as good as the Justice Department’s willingness to enforce it. If Harris County is registering noncitizens, then it is violating numerous provisions of federal law, including those that prohibit the registration of foreigners to vote in federal elections.
True the Vote uncovered other types of fraud as well. The group forwarded to DOJ seven voter registration forms with applicant names different from the signature name. For example: Ta’mackayn Harrison’s application was signed by “Bra Kelly.” Jason King’s was signed by “Jemma Noel.” Yet Harris County inexplicably approved all of these applications. Jason King, aka Jemma Noel, is now on the voter rolls in Houston.
The citizens group also found multiple registrations for individual voters. For example, True the Vote provided the Justice Department government documents showing that at least four persons, including Jose Gomez and Victor Nickerson, had registered to vote multiple times successfully.
These problems were found by True the Vote in just a small sampling of the county’s voter registration list.
In Kentucky, there’s not much detail, but state and FBI officials are investigating voter fraud in Breathhitt County.
In Illinois, disgraceful officials have reportedly been caught lying about the status of military ballots while DOJ twiddles its thumbs.
In Ohio, it’s Cincinnati schools under fire for busing students to vote and handing them Democrat-only sample ballots:
Three van loads of Hughes High students were taken last week – during school hours – to vote and given sample ballots only for Democratic candidates and then taken for ice cream, a Monday lawsuit alleges.
The complaint was made by Thomas Brinkman Jr., a Republican candidate for Hamilton County auditor, and the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending & Taxes against Cincinnati Public Schools.
“They plan to bring four more high schools (to vote) this week,” Christopher Finney, COAST attorney, said Monday after filing the suit.
It seeks a temporary restraining order to prevent school officials from participating or helping students participate in partisan politics during school hours or with school property or employees involved.
These cases underscore the need for voters to put secretaries of state into office who will protect election integrity from radical left-wing groups. I’ve said before we need candidates like Kris Kobach, running for secretary of state in Kansas on an anti-fraud, anti-corruption, anti-ACORN platform, in every state in the nation.

Today is a day for conservatives to thank Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid for destroying the Democratic majority in Congress, stopping the progressive juggernaut and putting Republicans in a perfect possition to take control of the Senate in 2012 and eject the Radical-in-Chief from his Oval perch.
Watching the MSNBC leftists Olbermann, Matthews and Maddow try to explain away the rejection of their policies by the American people and attribute it to “outside money,” inept messaging, insufficiently radical policies and poor instructions to their camp followers was a particularly satisfying experience. Keep on thinking that way comrades, encourage Obama and Reid to open the throttle on the socialist express and – as Karl Rove put it with a joyful exuberance in his FoxNews commentary — “drive that train off the cliff.”
This was an election night which saw the state houses in North Carolina and Alabama go Republican for the first time since 1872 and 1874, which cast out — often by landslide margins — “old bull” Democrats Skelton, Boucher, Oberstar and Edwards, who had been in the House for more than twenty years and had stuffed their districts with enough pork to keep their voters satisfied and the seats they held their personal property for as long as they drew breath.
Here was a night that saw the election of a Republican governor in the unionized Michigan by a twenty-point landslide, and the installation of Republican governors through the arc of the Midwest from Wisconsin through Illinois and Ohio for the first time in half a century, along with the state house and legislature of keystone Pennsylvania.
Here was a sixty-seat flip in the U.S. House of Representatives a feat that hasn’t been achieved since 1948. Despite this conservative tsunami by a party outspent and out-manned, the progressive faithful still grasped hope from the fact that in two union-plagued states in the west Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer managed to cling to their by now near-hereditary seats, and because an empty-headed Republican lost a race she should never have run in Delaware, Republicans fell short of a Senate majority.
This election night failure to take the Senate is in fact a conservative blessing in disguise (as is the loss of the governorship in California, a state that no Republican executive could rescue from its socialist legislature and union mafia and the bankrupt future to which they have condemned the state).
If Republicans had won the Senate, Obama would run in 2012 by attacking a “Do-Nothing” Congress that had thwarted his plans to fundamentally change America into a cornucopia of social justice and economic health. An almost-majority in the Senate is good enough to thwart his radical spending schemes and anti-business assaults without handing him an opportunity to deceive voters public by blaming his mess on someone else.
The “good news” which desperate progressives have managed to retrieve from California and Nevada has another upside for 2012 when 24 “liberal” Senate seats and the Oval Office are up for grabs. This optimism will stiffen progressive necks and cause them to pressure their leaders to drive the train along that radical track, encouraging them to defend their rejected policies and resist a change of direction. And that’s just what conservatives should want them to do.
An oblivious president Obam- a hasn’t learned from the Republican tidal wave
EDITORIAL THE WASHINGTON TIMES
November 3, 2010
President Obama still doesn’t get it. He continues to think the American electorate is merely impatient with the economy rather than scared by his policies, that the economy must be managed by government rather than freed from bureaucratic shackles. He’s wrong on all counts.
Tuesday’s elections constituted the most stunning rebuke to an incumbent president in 72 years. Republicans campaigning against the Obama agenda gained at least 60 House seats, at least six Senate seats, nine governorships and a large number of state legislative chambers. Exit polls showed a desire for smaller government and repealing Obamacare. At yesterday’s press conference, however, the president evaded questions about this tsunami being a strong rebuke to the substance of his leadership.
“We would be misreading the election,” Mr. Obama claimed, “if we thought the American people wanted us to spend the next two years relitigating the decisions we made in the past two years.” As Democratic pollster Patrick Caddell summed it up for Fox News, “He seemed absolutely tone-deaf.” Clearly, the public hates Obama policies.
Across the country, Americans rejected bank bailouts, car-company bailouts, insurance mandates and almost everything else about Obamacare, oil-drilling moratoria and slowdowns and intrusive regulations in every facet of the economy. Americans rejected stimulus packages that - combined - exceed a trillion dollars, as well as trillion-dollar annual deficits.
Americans rejected administrative fiat that gives special-interest tax breaks to trial lawyers and allows unions to organize without traditional secret ballots. Americans rejected politicized and race-based “justice” along with the president’s radical judicial appointees and leftist social agenda, which - among other things - attempts to seed all levels of education with values antithetical to the American tradition.
Americans have come to resent Mr. Obama’s denial of American exceptionalism, his kowtowing to this nation’s enemies, his diminution of missile defense, his bizarre promotion of Islam throughout American government and his mollycoddling of suspected terrorist detainees. Even after this week’s shellacking, the president refuses to listen.
Mr. Obama is right about one thing: The American people are furious about the shape of the economy. And in his press conference, he almost began to sound like he understood the public’s message. “The only way America succeeds is if businesses succeed,” he said. “We need a free market that is dynamic and entrepreneurial. ...” Then, in the next breath, he ruined it. “That free market has to be nurtured and cultivated,” he said. “We must make sure to the business community as well as to the country that we boost and encourage our business sector and make sure they start hiring. We’ve got plans. ...”
That statement encapsulates exactly what’s wrong with Mr. Obama’s left-wing approach. The market shouldn’t be “nurtured and cultivated” by government; it just needs consistent rules that are clear and unintrusive. Government shouldn’t “boost and encourage our business sector” but instead just get out of the way. Government needs to stop foisting “plans” on the economy and leave entrepreneurs free to put their own plans into action.
Americans want their freedom back. Unless President Obama recognizes that central message, he will continue to flail around, rejected by the American people.

It Sure Seems Like We're Done (Reagan's Morning in America has become Obama's Closing Time)
American Thinker ^ | 01/01/2011 | Jack Curtis
For those legislating and regulating industry out of the country and reducing our living standard back to maybe 1800 to call themselves Progressives requires a sense of humor, but in a way, they're right. Closing Post-Classical civilization to move into a new era can be called progress, at least by some.
Most in the newborn Western Christian era during its early Dark Ages might not have seen it as progress but we at the intended end of its flowering of wealth and technology certainly think of it that way.
History leaves no doubt that civilizations rise and fall; the fall always beginning when rising ends. The Classical era passed in under a millennium and a half; ours has already gone longer but Reagan's Morning in America has become Obama's Closing Time. Deindustrializing America is an endgame and if the Obamacrats are saving the planet, it's not for underemployed Americans.
Judeo-Christianity provided the values and beliefs to structure our Post-Classical era, culminating for government in the U.S. Declaration of Independence that rooted unalienable rights in man, authored by his Creator. Those rights in turn, rooted the legitimacy of the state in the consent of the governed and explicitly advertised the related rights of those governed to alter or replace that state at will. None of that is acceptable to Progressives who know what is good for you and expect government to force it onto you whether or not you want it; their new era is to replace Judeo-Christian rule with a government whose constitution is itself and to which the Declaration of Independence doesn't apply.
The deliberate dismantling of the industrial economy and with it, the American Dream isn't the sole indicator; the only proven system of mass wealth creation, Christian capitalism, is equally under government's wrecking ball.
Capitalism is entirely a product of the self-interest of free individuals; Christian capitalism limits the selfishness with Judeo-Christian morality but still rests on self-interest and individual freedom. Today's crony capitalism is so intertwined with the state that it's more an semi-formal fascism; that's why it's unable to compete from the U.S. Capitalists no longer make their own decisions; the state does too much of it for them, ending the system that enriched America.
Even more than capitalism, private property underlies both justice and economic success; in America now, governments routinely confiscate private real estate via eminent domain to hand it to crony developers for their profit while police confiscate private guns and cash on mere suspicion without due process of law, often arresting those trying to record their actions via cell phone. Beyond that, not only Judeo-Christian property rights but the right to life is at risk: a November 8th, 2010 news release from the Center for Constitutional Government reported a case it brought in Federal Court jointly with the ACLU under the headline:
Obama Administration Claims Unchecked Authority To Kill Americans Outside Combat Zones.
OBAMA INSISTS THAT PEOPLE IN D.C. TREAT HIM LIKE A DOG... Fred Thompson replied : "Maybe it's because he keeps treating this country like a fire hydrant"
“TREATED LIKE A DOG”
As long as he keeps peeing on our constitution, what does Obama expect, doggie treats?
The government argued that it should have unreviewable authority to kill Americans the executive branch has unilaterally determined to pose a threat per the release; the case arose out of targeted drone killings aimed at American citizens allegedly helping the Taliban in Pakistan but the authority being claimed could be used anywhere.
The American citizen famously bowed to no man and stood on his own, worked hard, feared God, enshrined his family, despised dependency and was generous as well as ambitious. Today's citizen is regulated by government and conditioned by public education toward despite and rejection of those values while his elected President bows to despots. While still alive in parts of the body politic, the Judeo-Christian ethos no longer defines American leaders or voters.
These shifts in attitudes and economic practices have accumulated over years; they have not arrived overnight nor have they produced the paradigm shift that underlies revolution. Most still assume we are living in the product of the Founders' planning, brought up to date with computers. Two things are threatening that complacence: the ongoing economic failure and the public relations disaster created by the Democrats' handling of ObamaCare on top of the Stimulus. Both President and Congress made fools of the voters while making incompetents of themselves in the voters' eyes as the price of what seem increasingly Pyrrhic legislative victories. Economic difficulty makes a particularly bad time to tempt voters to question their governors and a worse time to question their institutions.
Behind the recovery propaganda is the unpalatable fact that all but a few U.S. cities and states -- and many counties, too -- are insolvent, with debts and obligations far past any repayment by taxpayers struggling with their own declining living standards. Local governments' pay and pensions are unsustainable; all but about three states are no better and can't meet their bills for schools and social services.
The Feds are spending over a trillion dollars beyond their income every year. Taxpayers are obligated beyond $200,000 per family by all that, without considering any family debt. That tottering tower of runaway unreality will follow the old tower at Babel unless the governors cut drastically, shutting off much of the so-called safety net and repudiating decades of political promises. So far, neither Democrats nor Republicans are facing up to that.
Kicking the can down the road is the current Washington phrase for ignoring this reality by papering it over with Fed fun money and borrowing; it guarantees a more sudden and calamitous collapse when the can reaches the road's end. Google: Weimar Republic inflation for a quick view of one way it could go. The other possibilities aren't a lot better. In Weimar's case, it led to Adolf Hitler. In all history, it has led to great instability and uncertainty and has brought everything into question.
So, we have two conditions that greased the skids under Greco-Roman civilization: too few holding to the legitimizing ethos plus a government that destroys the economy. The tipping point, a widespread, destabilizing event, is hanging over us via the impending economic Gotterdammerung; thus do old paradigms die.
But one ingredient remains missing; old paradigms don't fully die until a new one is available. The Progressives busily burying Judeo-Christianity have none to offer; they are about regression, making do with less under an all-controlling and so wealth-destroying government. They are ultimately nihilists with only Mao's belief: that power derives from the barrel of a gun.
It therefore seems likely that, no matter how bad it gets, we will straggle on down the same decline we've been following, at least until a likely alternative shows itself. And maybe there will be a Judeo-Christian revival; it wouldn't be the first. We seem to be reaching an end but a new beginning isn't visible.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
