Media blackout of black Chicago protesters marching against Obama

They can’t be fooled forever!  Many blacks are waking up and realizing the President of ‘Hope’ has abandoned them.  From Breitbart:  “Not all blacks tow the racial line and  vote for Obama just because he’s black. Meet the Broke Party, who could be members of the Tea Party. They, like most US citizens want the American Dream, not poverty. They don’t want to be used by liberals like Obama who want to keep them on the welfare plantation as vote slaves. The jerks at ABC? They just hide out.”

ACORN Whistleblower and Ex-Liberal Anita Moncrief Discusses Voter Fraud and Racism at CPAC

By Kasey Jachim

I know everyone is busy and inundated with political videos and articles, I know I am.  However, I recently took time to watch the following two videos of Anita Moncrief, a former ACORN employee and whistleblower, at CPAC last September.  She discusses her journey of idealism and staunch liberalism to cynicism and disillusion of the liberal left – her journey from liberalism to conservatism.  She claims she was ignored by every liberal, and supposedly unbiased, news media she attempted to contact regarding ACORN’s voter fraud efforts and Obama’s small donor list.  ACORN was supposed to contact these small donors who legally maxed out on their donations to Obama and convince them to donate to ACORN.  ACORN would then use the funds to elect Obama.  The only one who paid attention to her was FOX News – no surprise there!

She also discusses racism and that, as an insider, she realized that racism was coming from the left and not the right.  Although she voted for Obama and wanted him to succeed, she realized that he had surrounded himself with Socialists like Hilda Solis (Card Check), Kathleen Sebelius (Universal Health Care), and Leon Panetta (ACORN and Socialist ties).  “I started to think ‘if everyone around you is corrupt, how can you be a good guy?’  I realized that Obama wasn’t being basically railroaded by these Socialists – he was a Socialist.”

Please take the time to watch the following two videos (Part I and Part II) of her speech – she lays it all out there.  Each video is around ten minutes and well worth your time!

Part II

“The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection” – Chilling Videos and Transcripts

This will be the most important election of my lifetime and we need to get it right this time!  I truly believe that, as a nation, we failed to vet Barack Obama the first time around. Our friend, Andrew Breitbart, unsuccessfully tried to vet the man and was astonished that we failed to perceive the threat Obama posed to our country.

 A national conference sponsored by America’s Survival, Inc. was held on July 19, 2012 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  The conference, titled ‘The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection’,  introduced several experts who presented very thorough and compelling discussions on Obama and his Marxist-Communist-Islamist connections. Topics included: Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis; Obama’s Saudi connection; Muslim communism; the Marxist-Islamist nexus; communist exploitation of blacks; Soros funding of Marxist groups; the dangers of foreign propaganda channels like Al-Jazeera and Russia Today; and the War on Cops.

The following excerpts and videos are from the proceedings of that conference.  Each one is a lesson in itself and I hope you take the time to watch each and every one of them.  They are ominous and at times chilling – which makes you wonder how we, as a nation, failed to connect the dots.

There is a brief excerpt of the speaker’s speech following the video with a link to the full pdf file.  You can view the conference and donate to America’s Survival at www.LeninandSharia.com.

Conference organizer Cliff Kincaid, a veteran journalist, author, and media critic, serves as President of America’s Survival, Inc. and director of the Accuracy in Media Center for Investigative Journalism. He released the 600-page FBI file on Barack Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, in 2008, and has called on Congress to re-establish committees examining internal security problems in the U.S. Cliff introduces the conference and concludes it.

Cliff Kinkcaid:

It is time for the shocking truth about America’s internal security crisis, which starts at the top, to be presented to the American people. Our conference today fulfills the late Andrew Breitbart’s promise to finally “vet” the president. Our featured speaker, Paul Kengor, has written a book, The Communist. Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, which is a major contribution to understanding our president and his policies. Four years after we helped break this story, it is time to tell it.

CARL is how the FBI used to conduct background tests. CARL stands for character, associates, reputation, and loyalty — except the FBI was not required to investigate Obama’s background. We will. A conservative attorney who has been probing into the backgrounds of Obama and his associates tells the story of attending a speech by Republican Rudolph Giuliani in 2011 and asking the former New York City mayor if he had ever considered the possibility that Obama was a mole. “What? A mole? God, I hope not,” was the response.

 Such a suggestion may strike some as preposterous. But Frank Chapman, a communist activist who attended meetings of the Soviet front World Peace Council, used the term “mole” to describe Obama. He said Obama’s political success in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries was “a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle.” He went on, “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.” The Communist Party USA backs Obama to the hilt.     Read more here.

Joel Gilbert is the president of Highway 61 Entertainment in Los Angeles. He is a contributing editor for the national security and foreign policy website familysecuritymatters.org, and has appeared frequently as a foreign policy analyst on national radio shows. He speaks about his film, “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception.”

Joel Gilbert:

Why does it matter who Barak Obama’s father really is?

It matters because Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, so he would bring people together, so the story went. As a result, the public perceived Barack Obama as a nice man with an inspiring family story.

However, as shown in Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama in fact has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally hid, in order to obscure a Marxist political foundation. While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide a Marxist agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. Based on Obama’s own accounts, there can be no doubt that Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA Propagandist, and former Soviet Agent, indoctrinated Obama with a Marxist world view during his formative years. This is a known phenomenon amongst the radical left, referred to as “Red Diaper Babies” or “hand-me-down Marxism.”  Much of the leadership of the SDS and Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Katherine Boudin, Jeff Jones, and many more. David Axelrod is also a “Red Diaper Baby”, his mother was a Red journalist.

The Journalist’s Creed

Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon. It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii, and has been quietly infiltrating the US economy, universities, and media for decades.

CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE DREAMS FROM MY REAL FATHER WEBSITE

As I speak today, here at the National Press Club in Washington DC, what strikes me as most disturbing is that any one of the hundreds of American journalists in this building could win the Pulitzer Prize, just by writing about the evidence presented in Dreams from My Real Father.

So today, here at the National Press Club, a great American Institution, I would like to recall the Journalist’s Creed. The Journalist’s Creed is a code of ethics for the profession of Journalism. It is posted on the wall in the lobby of this building in bronze. It was written by Walter Williams in 1906, when he founded the Missouri School of Journalism. The Journalist’s Creed stipulates:

1)  That journalists must be public trustees with the full measure of responsibility to the public

2)  That accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism

3)  That a single standard of truth must prevail for all

4)  That suppression of the news is indefensible

5)  And that journalism must be independent, unbiased by personal opinion, and always unafraid.     To read more click here.

Trevor Loudon broke the story about Obama’s childhood mentor being Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis. He was also the first to disclose the facts concerning Obama White House official Van Jones’s communist background. He presents his report, The Pro-Soviet Agent of Influence Who Gave Barack Obama His First Job in Politics.

Trevor Loudon:

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” This is what President Barack Obama privately told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea, on March 26, 2012. Medvedev replied, “I understand you. I transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin], and I stand with you.”

Vladimir Putin was not the only person Obama’s “private message” was transmitted to. Their conversation was recorded and broadcast live via an open microphone and camera.

Consider Obama’s policies – the New START Treaty, the acceptance of Russian surveillance flights over the U.S., Russian troops training in Colorado, and “flexibility” over missile defense. Over the last four years President Obama seems to be doing everything he can to make Moscow happy. Could all this be mere naïveté, or a genuine, if misguided, willingness to build bridges to America’s long-time adversary? Or could President Obama’s political outlook actually coincidence (sic) more with Russian interests than America’s?    

After Obama’s “hot mike” incident with Medvedev, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney rightly re-affirmed that Russia is the United States’ “number one geo-political foe.” Despite all this, the mainstream media treat President Obama’s apparent Russophilia as of no consequence.

President Obama has associated all his life with supporters of the international communist movement. One was his boyhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, an advocate of “Red Russia” and long-time member of the Communist Party USA. Likewise Obama’s political mentor and personal physician in Chicago, Quentin Young, was also involved with the Communist Party, and even tried to enter North Vietnam during the Vietnam War to give moral support to communist forces then killing his own countrymen.

Obama’s Chicago friends and colleagues, former Weather underground terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, have long supported international communism though their connections to the Marxist regimes in Cuba and Venezuela. As Larry Grathwohl reports and the evidence shows, the Soviet KGB and the Cuban DGI were also involved with the Weather Underground in a significant way. But the individual in Obama’s life most closely tied to the Soviet/Russian component of international communism was undoubtedly former Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer.

Though it eventually turned sour, the Palmer/Obama relationship was crucial to the aspiring politician’s career. It would be fair to say that Alice Palmer gave Barack Obama his first job in politics – she provided the first rung in the ladder to Obama’s eventual rise to the Oval Office. Barack Obama and Alice Palmer were both involved, circa 1993, in Progressive Chicago, an affiliate of the New Party, which in turn was formed by members of ACORN, SEIU, Democratic Socialists of America, and the Soviet and Cuban-affiliated Institute for Policy Studies, as a vehicle to move the Democratic Party to the left.

In 1995, South Side Chicago politics was upset by scandal. Local Congressman Mel Reynolds was facing charges of sexual assault of a sixteen-year-old campaign volunteer, eventually resigning his seat. The vacancy interested several politicians, including State Senator Alice Palmer, who prepared to enter the Congressional race. Shortly after this she employed Barack Obama as her chief of Staff. An organization, Friends of Alice Palmer, was formed to run her campaign and included in its leadership (since jailed) property developer Tony Rezko and Barack Obama. It also included three activists who were later proved to be members of the Democratic Socialists of America – Timuel Black, future Congressman Danny Davis and Betty Willhoite. Black and Davis are close personal friends of Barack Obama to this day, while Willhoite endorsed Progressives for Obama in 2008.

In exchange for his help on her congressional campaign, Alice Palmer promised Obama support in winning her Illinois State Senate seat. In 1995, State Senator Palmer introduced Obama at a gathering in the Hyde Park home of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. ”I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers’ house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and running for Congress,” said Obama’s friend and physician Dr. Quentin Young, of the informal gathering at the home of Ayers and Dohrn. “Palmer identified [Obama] as her successor.”

However when Palmer was badly beaten in the Democratic primaries, she decided to stick with her State Senate seat. Obama refused to step down, to make way for Palmer’s return. Despite mediation attempts by Timuel Black and others, Obama dug his heels in, causing a relationship rift that has not healed to this day. Obama went on to win the seat unopposed, after he knocked Palmer and his other rivals off the ballot, by successfully challenging the legitimacy of their nominating signatures.

Obama’s political ascendancy had begun.  In 2008, Alice Palmer supported Hillary Clinton in her bid to win the Democratic presidential nomination.  Alice Palmer’s Background – Who is the woman who gave the President his start in politics?   To read more click here.

He wrote the 1976 book, Bringing Down America, and now works with America’s Survival, Inc. to re-establish Congressional committees to investigate internal security problems. He presents his report, White Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Weather Underground, Barack Obama, and the Fundamental Transformation of the United States.

Larry Grathwohl:

I am in a unique position to know Barack Obama’s associates. I worked with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn in the Weather Underground as an informant for the FBI. I never heard of Obama during my time in the movement, although I understand Joel Gilbert has developed information that Obama was active with a Weather Underground support group, the May 19th Communist Organization, in New York. That does not surprise me. Obama has associated with communists all of his life, from Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii to Alice Palmer, Bill Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn in Chicago. This is a pattern of associations that should have disqualified him from the presidency.

After I left the Weather Underground and testified against Ayers and Dohrn for their involvement in a murder plot that killed Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell, they surfaced in Chicago helping Obama launch his political career. Like true communists, who have been manipulating black Americans since shortly after the Russian revolution, Ayers and Dohrn would have seen revolutionary potential in Obama. He was, in the words of communist operative Frank Chapman, a “revolutionary mole.” Perhaps that term was meant to be more than a figure of speech.

You see, Obama was a different kind of Democrat – one that would work with the communists. He and Danny K. Davis, his old friend and current Congressman from Chicago, were “New Party” Democrats, working to take over the Democratic Party from within. That is how Frank Marshall Davis worked in Hawaii to take over the NAACP and the Democratic Party.  These are the tactics of infiltration now being practiced in a different way by the Muslim Brotherhood and its front organizations.   To read more click here.

Konstantin Preobrazhensky is a former KGB officer and intelligence expert who fled to the U.S. in 2003 and received political asylum in March 2006. His activities have made him an enemy of the KGB and Russian President Vladimir Putin. His books, KGB Amidst Russian Emigration, and KGB/FSB’s New Trojan Horse, published in the U.S. in 2007 and 2008, have opened the eyes of Russian émigré on current KGB activities among them. He presents his paper, Communists and Muslims: The Hidden Hand of the KGB.

Konstantin Preobrazhensky:

The communists have considered Islam their ally from the very beginning, because in the early 20th century, Islam was the religion of the “oppressed people.” Support of Islam was considered a part of Russian-based anticolonialism. It is very significant that Vladimir Lenin in December 1917 addressed his second message, delivered just after coming to power, to the “Toiling Muslims of Russia and East.” So they considered Muslims a reservoir of people for the world communist revolution.

According to Ben Fowkes and Bulent Gokay,”Lenin was very concerned with Asia, and as hopes of revolution in the West faded after the war with Poland in October 1920 he turned his attention to the colonies of the Western powers. In them he saw a way of using bourgeois nationalist revolutions to deprive imperialist powers of the raw materials and markets that he believed to be necessary for their survival.” 

Interestingly, Stalin, who was then the People’s Commissar for Nationalities, also signed this public message delivered by Lenin to Russian Muslims. It said: All of you whose mosques and prayer houses used to be destroyed, and whose beliefs and customs were trodden underfoot by the Tsars and oppressors of Russia! From today, your beliefs, customs, your national and cultural institutions are free and inviolate. Organize your national life freely and without hindrance. You are entitled to this. Know that your rights, like the rights of all peoples of Russia, are protected by the whole might of the Revolution and itsagencies, the Soviets workers, soldiers’, and peasants’ deputies.

Support, then, this Revolution and its sovereign Government. Comrades! Brothers! Let us march towards an honest and democratic peace. On our banners is inscribed the freedom of all oppressed peoples.”  Muslims have heard Lenin’s call. Many of them in the Russian Empire took an active part in the Communist Revolution. In some cities they formed Muslim Military-Revolutionary Committees. These Committees were engaged in overthrowing so-called Muslim- exploiting classes, the bourgeoisie and landlords associated with the old imperial regime. For example, in 1918 the Bashkir’s Muslim Military Revolutionary Committee arrested the local bourgeoisie Bashkir government.   To read more click here.

Obama Campaign Gears Up For Massive Voter Fraud

By  Via The Western Center for Journalism

Charlie Rangel, flanked by high-level Democrats, recently strutted up to the microphone declaring himself the winner against Hispanic opponent Adrian Espaillat in the race for New York’s 15th Congressional District. At least until his opponent discovered that polling places were illegally asking voters for ID, were turning away pro-Espaillat voters, and even were reporting zero votes to suppress the counts.

 

What a shocker: Charlie Rangel was involved in massive voter fraud and intimidation.

No one is surprised, really. Far-Left “Progressive” (i.e., socialist) Democrats have been involved in these tactics for years. Like Obama, Rangel was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America in 1996. Like Obama, Rangel has deep ties to the unions and Alinsky (ACORN-style) groups that are the shock troops of voter fraud.

Imagine if the tactics used in the Rangel/Espaillat race were used on a national scale. Where the entire Democratic National Committee (DNC), all the major unions, and all the “Progressive” groups were engaged in a massive voter fraud and voter intimidation campaign.

Well, we don’t have to imagine it as this is what occurred in 2008 with Obama supporters during the Democratic Primary, as countless poll workers, Hillary Clinton supporters, and simple bystanders extensively reported.

And the mainstream media did what they do best and ignored it.

Now imagine all the previous groups banded together with the power of the Obama presidency, the power of the DOJ, the power of all aligned city governments, etc., involved in a repeat of what we witnessed in 2008.

We will have an attack on our election process that makes the ballot stuffing and intimidation of 2008 look like child’s play.

Do we think Eric Holder is running around the country blathering about the evil of voter ID laws because he cares about minority voters? Holder is nowhere to be found when Espaillat, a Hispanic, is calling foul.

The Obama campaign and Eric Holder’s DOJ are gearing up for a tidal wave of voter fraud and intimidation that will drown this country with a corrupt election beyond resuscitation.

Both Obama and Eric Holder need to be impeached before this can occur.

WHAT is SCYTL & WHY Should You Be VERY, VERY Concerned? Goodbye ACORN hello SCYTL!

By Marion Algier via Tea Party Nation

Finally, there seems to be growing concern about vote fraud. Over the last couple of months I have attended meetings about vote fraud and have become more alarmed that it may extend beyond our borders.  See:  Nov 2012 vote tabulation raising concerns  like: True the Vote (http://www.truethevote.org/) and The King Street Patriots among others, have been reaching out to teach us what they have learned. Based on some of that information, and a suggestion in an email from The King Street Patriots, I decided to help some of my friends and family participate easily because many people are good at forwarding emails, but do not follow through… (See sample letter below).

Here’s another of those quiet, subtle, but very dangerous little stories that has somehow slipped past all the mainstream media outlets.

The United States of America has a brand new private VOTE COUNTING company that the Obama administration has personally handpicked.

The company is called Scytl and it is based in Michelle Obama’s most favorite vacation spot, Barcelona, Spain.

Forget the fact that Barack is once again providing jobs for people in another country; there are much bigger fish to fry in this story.

According to the “About Us” section of the Scytl website:

Scytl is a worldwide leader in the development of secure solutions for electoral modernization.

Scytl was formed as a spin-off from a leading research group at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. This group, funded by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Science and Technology, has pioneered the research on e-voting security in Europe since 1994 and has produced significant scientific results, including 25 scientific papers published in international journals and the first two European Ph.D. theses on electronic voting security, by Prof. Joan Borrell and Scytl’s founder Dr. Andreu Riera (in 1996 and 1999, respectively). This research group also participated in the first Internet binding election in Europe (i.e., the 1997 election to the Presidency of the IEEE IT Spanish chapter).

Scytl has customers both in the private and public sectors. Some of these customers represent leading references in the electoral modernization market (e.g., governments in Spain, the USA, France, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Philippines, Argentina, Mexico, Finland and Australia) and are pioneering new electronic voting applications. Scytl’s solutions have been successfully used in multiple projects worldwide, some of which represent breakthrough projects for the electoral modernization industry.

So what does this mean for all us non-European voters here in America?

According to Michael Savage, “[T]his critical component to a free election, the transparent tabulation of votes, will not be handled by individual precincts but by a company over which we will have little control…The problem is that once the votes are merged, it will be impossible to go back and check their integrity at the local level. It is very likely that this is the final step in Barack Obama’s corruption of the voting process. It has the promise of enabling him and his cohorts to control the outcomes of federal elections with no accountability. On top of that it’s one more step toward a global government.”

There are no Americans on the Board of Directors of Scytl—but CEO Pere Valles once lived and worked in Barack’s old stomping grounds, Chicago. From the Scytl website:

Mr. Valles joined Scytl in March 2004 after spending most of his professional career in the United States. Prior to joining Scytl, Mr. Valles was Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of GlobalNet, a NASDAQ publicly-traded telecommunications company headquartered in Chicago. Mr. Valles assisted GlobalNet in becoming one of the leading providers of Voice-over-IP in the world and was instrumental in the successful sale of the company to the Titan Corporation, a NYSE defense company. At GlobalNet, Mr. Valles was responsible for designing and executing the strategic plan that led to an increase in revenues from US$ 25 million to over US$ 100 million and brought the company to profitability. Previously, Mr. Valles had worked as Senior Manager for KPMG‘s Mergers & Acquisitions group in Los Angeles and Miami providing financial and strategic consulting services to private equity groups and corporations involved in acquisitions in the United States, Latin America and Europe. During his career at KPMG, Mr. Valles actively participated in more than 20 transactions in the telecommunications and technology areas. Mr. Valles has a bachelor degree in Economics and a bachelor degree in Law from the University of Barcelona and a MBA (summa cum laude) from Indiana University.

In 2008 the Florida Department of State looked into using Scytl’s remote voting system but turned it down. Their reasons:

Our findings identified vulnerabilities that, in the worst case, could result in (i) voters being unable to cast votes, (ii) an election result that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters, or (iii) disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by a voter. The extent to which these vulnerabilities could actually be exploited in the ODBP is beyond the scope of this report given our lack of system context. Secure handling and audit of the Voter Choice Records may defend against some or all of these vulnerabilities, but these procedures were not available for review.

We identify three findings of particular significance:

  • The use of supervised polling stations provides significantly better protection against voter coercion or vote- selling than is present in some other absentee voting systems, such as voting by mail.
  • Two copies of each vote are stored: one electronically, and another on paper as a Voter Choice Record. This pro- vides redundancy that is not present in existing vote-by-mail systems. If the electronic votes are well-protected, then they can enable audit of the paper records in ways that are not currently possible.
  • After casting their ballot, each voter is given a receipt that is intended to give voters confidence that their votes were “Counted as Cast”. These receipts do not achieve their stated goal of allowing voters to “independently verify that their ballots have been correctly accounted for.” These receipts might indicate that a vote was received and decrypted by the county (a property not typically provided by current postal voting systems), but they do not provide assurance that the voter’s vote was correctly recorded.

Also interesting to note, one of the organizations on “Scytl Partners” tab is Oracle, a major supporter to all-things-Democrat. And another Scytl Partner is a spooky “global governance” organization called Gov2u.org. Check them out. Yikes.

There are many, many reasons for all of us to be concerned about Obama’s choice in vote-counting this November—yet no one seems to be up-in-arms about this other than Michael Savage and a handful of Internet bloggers.

Goodbye ACORN, hello Scytl…

*This is all part of Team Obama’s plan, Progressive plan… to fight voter ID laws wherever they can to allow dead people and non-citizens to vote as well as allowing them and others to vote multiple times, to use rigged voting machines,to  intimidate people at the polls, to control the Secretaries of State, who certify the votes and now to use remote vote counting companies and systems that are tied to the Democrats and global governance supporters.  Even the use of online voting and overuse of absentee ballots, when not needed, should be of concern! Ww need to wake-up and stand-up America.  A small group of bloggers and conservative pundits have been warning about this for years. Now that Election 2012 is less than 7-months away people are finally waking-up.  Time to get involved and stand up (immediately and fervently) before it is too late!!  M~ – h/t to MJ & AJ

How Does Team Obama Olan to Steal Election 2012 And What Will You D…

Voter Fraud – Hacking Democracy

Here is a simple sample letter (by GILTN1stborn)

Sample email:

Dear YOUR Sec. of State name here,

Over the last several months I have been following the stories about SCYTL, a foreign vote tabulation company in Spain. There is a long list of reasons why this is alarming and unacceptable. I know the State of Florida declined to use these systems in 2008: http://election.dos.state.fl.us/voting-systems/pdf/FinalReportSept1…

I would like to know if YOUR state here has used or intends to use SCTYL or any affiliates in vote tabulation.

I would also like to request that you change your choice for vote tabulation before Election 2012 and for any other future elections if the answer is yes.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME

God Bless America

Stealing Election 2012 through voter fraud and vote counting fraud are two of the main things the various tea party groups and concerned patriots should be focusing on and negating practices like utilizing companies like SCYTL should be at the forfront of all our concerns!!

The coming tsunami of voter fraud!!!

By Judson Phillips via Tea Party Nation

 

When the Democrats, aided and abetted by the RINO establishment, pushed the  Motor Voter law through, they had one thing in mind.  They wanted to get as many unlawful voters registered so they could steal elections.

With Florida probably being THE swing state this year, we should all be alarmed by this news.

From Reuters:

Florida election authorities are examining about 180,000 people who they say may not be U.S. citizens but are registered to vote in the state, an official said on Friday.

State officials are updating Florida’s voter rolls ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November. Florida is home to a large Latino population and is expected to be a critical swing state in the contest between Democratic President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Florida’s Division of Elections said it is checking the citizenship of voters by comparing its databases with those of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, which keeps track of whether a licensed driver is also a U.S. citizen.

Similar efforts have been carried out by state authorities in Colorado and New Mexico, which also have large Latino communities.

“We’re going to vet a list of 180,000 people to try to come up with a real number,” said Chris Cate, a spokesman for Florida’s Division of Elections. “We don’t want to jump to conclusions without a thorough investigation.”

Officials in Florida have so far identified more than 2,600 potential voters who may not be U.S. citizens and sent their information to local election authorities, Cate said.

Drivers in Florida are required to show proof of their legal status when they get a driver’s license or renew an old one.

Cate said cross-referencing voter rolls with the highway department information could help better determine whether voters are U.S. citizens, but he added the information was sometimes incomplete.

“Their last contact with the highway department may have been four or five years ago and they could have had the chance to become a citizen since then,” he said.

Potential non-citizen voters are notified by mail and given 30 days to respond.

You can bet your last dollar the Obama campaign and the Party of Treason are going to pull every trick out to try and steal this election this fall.    This is why we need voter ID laws.

Americans must have confidence our elections are fair.   If the Obama Regime tries to or even manages to steal this election this fall, all bets are off.

It is up to we the people to make sure they do not steal this election and make sure we get voter ID laws in all 50 states to make sure the Democrats never steal another election.

Anita Moncrief Takes on Eric Holder on Race, ACORN and Voter Fraud

By  J. Christian Adams via PJ Media

(Legal Editor Note: Not long ago, the Left had a monopoly on rallies and protests. Republicans and conservatives, more enamored with scholars instead of brawlers, shunned displays of political muscle in the streets. That’s all changed. A few months ago, Attorney General Eric Holder went to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas, to announce an aggressive attack on state election integrity measures like Voter ID. This election-year strategy is designed to stoke the leftist base but risks alienating everyone else. To greet Holder that day were hundreds of citizens at a rally sponsored by True the Vote.

I will never forget the disoriented look on Holder’s face as he emerged from the black SUV to the large crowd of people who came out to confront him. “Signs? Bullhorns? Multitudes? And they aren’t here to support me?” — that was the look.

ACORN whistleblower Anita Moncrief delivered a powerful speech that day, and PJ Media has finally been able to obtain it and publish it.)

Thank you. It’s an honor to be here today and I’m glad to see that there’s so many of you with your video cameras, because after the mainstream media gets hold of this, it will be “an all-white crowd showed up to protest Eric Holder.”  So I’m glad we’ll have a little bit of somebody to combat that.

I speak from the heart and I speak plain, so if I offend some of you I’m sorry. But it’s an honor to be here today, especially to be at the LBJ Library, the father of the Great Society, the father of the social programs and the welfare state, and then the dissolution of the black family and our communities.

When LBJ signed in the Voting Rights Act in 1965, he said: “We’ll have those niggers voting Democrat for the next 40 years.” And that needs to be said. People need to understand that. That’s the legacy that Holder brings here with him tonight by holding his speech here. It’s not just about coming here to talk about voting rights. It’s to talk about how they’ve taken race and turned it in to something that is unrecognizable.

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the heart of the civil rights movement. I could have walked to the 16th Street Baptist Church that was bombed during the civil rights era. And I have to tell you, the racism that I experienced, the evilness that came at me, it wasn’t from Birmingham, Alabama. It was from when I moved to the liberal north, and I got to see how things really were, and part of that was working with ACORN.

And that’s why I’m here today, to let you know what you guys are up against. This is not just something that has come out recently. This is something that started in the ’90s when Bill Clinton was in office. Not many people realize this, but ACORN helped get Bill Clinton elected, and the National Voter Registration Act was Clinton’s gift to ACORN.

And so for 10 years, ACORN and its sister organization Project Vote were going around the country and forcing Section 7 of the NVRA, which is the part about registering voters in public assistance agencies.  They coordinated openly with the Clinton Justice Department during the ’90s, and during that time they had voter registrations coming out of these public assistance offices in the millions. This was their demographic.

Imagine a government, a federal mandate targeting a certain demographic. What if we were to say that by federal law you have to register people in churches and gun stores across the country? You don’t think liberals would lose their mind?

They are targeting their demographic, the people that are getting them elected, and this Obama gravy train has gotten out of control. We have more people on public assistance and welfare and unemployment than ever before, and they are coordinating to get Obama elected.

I have proof that Obama and Project Vote and ACORN were coordinating illegally in 2008 to get Obama elected. Do you not think that they would do the same thing in 2012 to get this man put back in office?

If there is proof that the Department of Justice ignored an ACORN investigation because they knew it would lead right to the White House, do you not think they would try to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests that show collusion between Project Vote, who has been pushing this project for years, and now the DOJ has all of a sudden started back filing lawsuits across the country under Section 7 violations.

This is a coordinated effort by ACORN and its people to push the same agenda that they’ve been doing for 20 years. We have the proof, we can connect the dots. They’ve been contacting the Department of Justice up until 2004 to force them to file lawsuits; even when Bush was in office and Antonio Gonzales was the Attorney General, they were still trying to get them to collude with them and to work.

So now, now, when they publicly acknowledge working with the Department of Justice in those previous administrations, why are they denying it and hiding it now? Could it be because it’s illegal collusion? Could it be because they’re trying to work to get Obama elected?

These are the questions we need to ask. We have — and I say “we” because there are people I’m working with — over 55,000 documents that could indict some of these people from ACORN and Project Vote, the same people that are out there right now meddling around in New York with Occupy Wall Street and across the country.

Why won’t Darrell Issa and his people call for a congressional investigation of ACORN when there are enough documents to bury these people? Why won’t we get them to take the stand?

We need you guys to step up and do this. I am today calling for two things: one, a Congressional investigation into the activities of ACORN and Project Vote, the Obama administration, and its relation to the Department of Justice in these Section 7 lawsuits across the country; and two, I am calling on you guys to help me with this, to not only call for Holder’s resignation but his impeachment.

I am so tired of race being a dividing factor in our communities. I grew up poor in Birmingham, Alabama, and I will tell you, in the black community they don’t have a lot of opportunities, there’s not a lot of banks, so where are you going to get your check cashed at? The liquor store, or you go to a check cashing place.

You can’t do anything without an ID in the black community. Sometimes they won’t even let you use your debit card unless they can verify you are who you are, because they lose money on fraudulent purchases every year. These are the realities of being poor and being black in America. Why is Sharpton ignoring this? He knows exactly what I’m talking about, but he’s a professional race-baiter. He smells that 8mm camera film and he comes running out there and he pulls out that platinum race card.

I’m tired of the platinum race card, and that’s why I’m here today — to let you know it’s a lie, it’s something they have used to divide this country, and we have got to get together and stop it. And the only way we can do that is to unite our voices and call for these investigations, and to let people know that we are tired of this race card and we’re not going to put up with that in 2012.

Counterfeit Voting – Voter Identification Laws Protect Your Civil Liberty

By Michael Loeb via Tea Party Nation

If there is anything I have learned over the years, it is that when the Federal Government says, does, or creates something, the opposite is usually true.

Here are some prime examples:

You can chart the rise and expansion of the Department of Education against the fall of test scores, and the rise of number of high school drop outs as indicators of the quality and effectiveness of education found in public schools.

You can chart the rise and expansion of the Department of Energy against the fall of our energy production and expansion of our dependence on foreign oil, regardless of what our current President might say.

The Patriot Act is a direct attack on the Bill of Rights.

The Food Safety Act puts more power into the hands of agricultural giants that have been exploring and utilizing genetically altered food where the long term consequences are yet unknown while driving small family owned farms (locally grown and fresh food) out of business.

Then there is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act  (Obamacare) billed to save money now reported to be twice as costly as we were told, over a $Trillion dollar difference.

The list goes on and on.

As of late state after state has been promoting the idea of requiring voters to prove who they are at the polls by passing voter identification laws.  The idea is simple, it cuts down on voter fraud, which is a much bigger issue than the government would like you to believe.

Not surprisingly the Obama administration led by Eric Holder claims that requiring proof of identity somehow violates a person’s civil rights.  The memo has been distributed and that is the main talking point of the Democratic (Socialist) Party.  When asked to defend their position they cannot, so they play the race card.  As if African or Hispanic Americans have no form of identification solely because they are African American or Hispanic American.  It makes no sense to rational thinking people and it shouldn’t.  Mostly what does this say about Eric Holder and fellow Democrats who feel that African and Hispanic Americans are so inept that these individuals cannot figure out how to obtain proper identification?  If I were a member of these groups I’d be personally outraged at such a slight.

States requiring ID’s have gone out of their way to provide verifiable ID to all that ask.  You need ID to buy beer, cigarettes, drive a car, get on a plane.  Recently I received a postcard from the Florida Blood Bank, requesting that I give blood.  It told me of the time and location of where the “big red bus” was going to be, and told me to bring picture ID.  So to save a life, to give a pint of blood, I’m required to identify myself.  Where is the outcry that we’re not accepting enough African American and Hispanic American blood?  Where is the outcry that beer and cigarette sales are discriminatory against minorities?

As usual if you flip it and turn it around you WILL see the truth and the agenda contained within.

Voting by those who cannot or will not identify themselves is a civil rights violation against those who can.

Your vote should be considered as sacrosanct as your 1st Amendment Right.  It is your 1st Amendment Right.  It is the primary way to speak directly to the government, to choose who represents you, to choose who you feel will best protect your rights, which is the sole purpose of government.  At least that is the way our founders envisioned a proper government of the people to be.

A vote by someone who cannot identify himself or herself should be considered a counterfeit vote, and anything counterfeited always diminishes the value of the real article.

I for one do not want my vote diminished.  I hope you agree with me.  I’m not surprised that Eric Holder who is unelected to his position and serves at the pleasure of the President wants my vote diminished.  Not surprised because the President wants my vote diminished.  The only way he can win re-election, by stuffing the ballot boxes with counterfeit votes.  ACORN is still alive and well, and wants to remain that way.  A re-election of Barack Obama means $Millions more for ACORN, in its 100’s of forms in all its glory, and for community organizers to build the socialist dream country.  An Obama victory will very likely mean the loss of free and true elections for generations to come if not forever.  The next president will likely appoint 2 or 3 Supreme Court justices.  Giving that power to Obama means that we will lose our Constitution, our Freedom, our Country.

More importantly, this is not an issue for the Federal Government.  It is a State issue as they are state elections.  Even the election for the POTUS is a State issue because you are electing electors, not the President.

Those that oppose voter identification laws point to the Voting Rights Act as well as the 15th Amendment.  Let it be known that the VRA and the 15th Amendment only apply to citizens of the United States.  If you cannot prove who you are by some form of reliable identification how can you prove you are a citizen in the first place?

So call your representatives and demand that your state adopt voter identification laws requiring everyone that votes show proper identification.

Holder plays race card to block Texas voter ID law

Texas Voter Identification Law Blocked by Justice Department as Biased

By Seth Stern via Bloomberg

The Obama administration blocked Texas (BEESTX)’s new law requiring voters to show government-issued photo identification at the polls, escalating a partisan dispute over voting restrictions.

The U.S. Justice Department used its power under the Voting Rights Act to halt the Texas law, saying in a letter to the state today that the measure may disproportionately harm Hispanics. The department in December blocked a similar law in South Carolina (NFSESC).

Democrats have objected to the voter ID laws as impediments to minority voting while Republicans have said they protect the integrity of elections. Republican officials in Texas, one of eight states that passed voter identification laws last year, said the administration has no valid reason to challenge the measure.

“Their denial is yet another example of the Obama administration’s continuing and pervasive federal overreach,”Texas Governor Rick Perry said in a statement.

The Justice Department’s decision isn’t final. Texas and South Carolina have filed suit in federal court in Washington seeking permission to enforce their photo ID requirements.

Before blocking South Carolina’s law, the last time the Justice Department challenged a state voter identification measure under the Voting Rights Act was in 1994.

History Binds States

Texas and South Carolina are among 16 states or portions of states that must obtain permission from the Justice Department or a federal court in Washington before redrawing their district lines or changing election procedures because of a history of voting rights violations.

Hispanic registered voters in Texas are 47 percent to 120 percent more likely to lack the required identification than non-Hispanic voters, the Justice Department said in its letter. Texas has 12.9 million registered voters of whom 2.81 million are Hispanic.

“Even using the data most favorable to the state, Hispanics disproportionately lack either a driver’s license or a personal identification card,” Thomas Perez, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, wrote in the letter to Keith Ingram, the director of elections for the Texas Secretary of State.

The Voting Rights Act puts the burden on Texas to prove its law wouldn’t interfere with minorities’ ability to vote.

‘Federal Overreach’

Representative Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that the Justice Department’s action is an example of the administration’s “abuse of executive authority.”

The American Civil Liberties Union supports the administration’s efforts to block the laws.

“It’s a good sign that the Department of Justice is stepping into the jurisdictions where it can to stop these laws in their tracks,” said Nancy Abudu, a senior staff attorney with the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project in Atlanta,

Under the Texas law signed last year by Perry, voters who arrive at the polls without one of seven acceptable forms of photo IDs issued by the state or federal government, including concealed carry handgun permits, would be given a provisional ballot, according to the Texas Secretary of State’s website.

Those ballots would count only if voters bring an approved ID to the registrar’s office within six days of the election.

‘Minor Inconveniences’

The law exempts mail-in ballots and voters with significant disabilities or religious objections to being photographed.

The law’s requirements “entail minor inconveniences on exercising the right to vote,” Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said in his court filing on Jan. 24.

The photo ID law would disproportionately affect poor and minority voters, who are least likely to have any of the required forms of identification or the documentation needed to obtain one, said Luis Figueroa, a San Antonio, Texas-based legislative staff attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. It also would hurt students because college or university IDs would not be accepted, Figueroa said.

The photo ID requirement could suppress minority turnout by three percent to five percent in Harris County, where Houston is located, and give Republicans an edge in local elections, said Carroll Robinson, a professor at Texas Southern University in Houston and a former city council member.

Election Integrity

“We’re going to disenfranchise significant numbers of minority voters as they become more and more the majority in Texas,” Robinson said.

Patricia Harless, a Republican state representative, said concerns among constituents about “the integrity of elections”rather than possible partisan advantage explains why she sponsored the voter ID measure last year. The law reduces the possibility of fraud, she said.

Lawmakers excluded student IDs because “we wanted a form of identification that was easily recognized by the poll workers at the election site,” Harless said.

Voters 65 and older automatically qualify to cast ballots by mail, which requires no ID, and the state will provide free voter identification cards.

“We worked really hard to make sure we met the constitutional requirements,” Harless said.

Lacking State ID

The Obama administration blocked South Carolina’s law in December after concluding minorities in the state are almost 20 percent more likely to lack state-issued identification than white registered voters.

The Justice Department asked for similar statistics from Texas, which said it doesn’t collect the kind of racial data needed to accurately determine how many of the state’s registered voters don’t have a driver’s license or state ID card are black or Hispanic. Texas provided data based on Hispanic surnames and no data on the impact on black voters, according to the Justice Department.

Jasmine Price, a sophomore at Prairie View A&M University, a historically black college 30 miles from Houston, said the law would make it harder for her to vote in person in Texas, as she’d prefer, rather than by absentee ballot in her home state, Arkansas.

Price, 19, said if the law takes effect, she’ll try to find the time in between a full course load and three shifts a week as a manager at a Houston sporting goods store to drive seven miles from campus to the nearest state Department of Public Safety office that issues IDs.

Literacy Tests

“My forefathers had it even harder to vote — they had to pass literacy tests — but they made sure they did what they had to do so that their vote could count,” said Price, who is black. “So if they say I have to go to the DPS office, as much as an inconvenience as it is to go there, that’s what I’m going to do.”

Alabama, where the voter ID law is not scheduled to go into effect until 2014, and Mississippi, where lawmakers haven’t adopted legislation to implement a citizen initiative approving a similar requirement, would also have to obtain Justice Department or federal court approval.

In Wisconsin, which doesn’t need to obtain the same kind of advance approval under federal law as Texas does, two state judges have temporarily blocked a voter ID requirement.

The latest ruling today in a challenge by the League of Women Voters came six days after a second judge ruled in a separate suit by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People against Governor Scott Walker.
