Democrats playing dirty in Idaho

leave a comment »

Idaho is a very red state.  So, in keeping with the Democratic mantra of “destroy the Republicans”, but be nice to terrorists, that state’s Democrat Party sent out a campaign mail piece that included the Social Security numbers for both Republican Congressman Bill Sali and his wife, potentially exposing them to fraud and identity theft.


What classy people!

Campaign donor fraud in one easy lesson

leave a comment »

Investor’s Daily Business succinctly lays out how Obama’s credit card fraud works:


Don’t think it’s accidental –  you have to do a fair bit of work to disable all the standard credit card fraud checks on a merchant website, because the default setting for all of them is ON.

Welcome, comrades

From the Toledo Blade, we learn in the last paragraph that Obama surrogate and US Rep. Marcy Kaptur  called for “a Second Bill of Rights guaranteeing all Americans a job, health care, homes, an education, and a fair playing field for business and farmers.”


If that sounds vaguely familiar, check out:


It’s Chapter 6 of the Constitution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which gives citizens their “rights.”

UPDATE: I see Mark Steyn’s readers at The Corner are flying on the same path, plus some very funny additional rights.

Some advice from National Review:

“Stray Winning Thoughts [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

What if everyone who reads NRO today has a conversation with a potential Obama voter today about Andy McCarthy’s piece on the Los Angeles Times sitting on an alarming Obama video?

What if everyone who reads NRO today has a conversation with a second person who is considering voting for Obama today about the redistribution tape (which Bill Whittle writes about here)?

What if everyone who reads NRO today e-mailed Mark Levin’s Saturday-night Corner post to one person who is considering voting for Obama today?

Would people start to wake up?

How about we give it a try? I’m game if you are.”

These 3 pieces are sufficient to give any thinking person great pause.

Stealing the caucuses…

leave a comment »

Kenneth Timmerman lays out how Obama overcame the polls favoring Hillary in caucus states:


Academic Lynette Long, a Hillary supporter from Bethesda, MD, compiled many eyewitness reports of fraud from the 14 caucus states in a 98-page, single-spaced report and in an interactive Web site: www.caucusanalysis.org which you ought to read.

Jim Meyers shows us why the Justice Dept. has no apparent interest in investigating all the fraud:


and JB Williams has an interesting take on polling bias and DNC strategies  for voter fraud:


JB also reminds us that Obama is a product of the eternally corrupt Chicago political machine:

Stealing an election

with one comment

There’s no time now, but after the election, even if McCain wins, get John Fund’s new book, Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy,  published by Encounter Books.  Note that the far-left Media Matters organization froths at the mouth at the mere mention of the title, a sure sign a honest observer has it right.

If you think voting systems prevent fraud, read this:


13 Obama staffers, including the 2 Obama Ohio spokesmen, either voted or intended to vote in Ohio, in obvious violation of the state’s campaign laws.

Voter fraud is like an iceberg — what you see is merely a fraction of the whole.  Assume the ratio is only 10 to 1 – that means there are still 127 frauds.  Add to that the 13 students registered at a single address and it doubles.  Add the dirty work of ACORN and the refusal of the Ohio Secretary of State to precheck the 200,000 no-match forms she has admitted having, and it’s certainly enough to swing a state — and an election.

And which party is it that always blocks requiring photo id at the polls?  That would be the party which stands to profit from voter fraud — Democrats.

UPDATE:  Forget DoJ action on voter fraud.  Obama donors at Justice have decided to drop prosecutors from the teams they’ve sent to voting places for years:


Yeah, yeah, I know it’s not illegal for DoJ employees to make political contributions, and a few made them to McCain, but shouldn’t it be department policy NOT to?

Killing the questionner

leave a comment »

Florida’s WFTV-Channel 9 did a satellite interview with Sen. Joe Biden and asked some tough questions:


In retaliation, the campaign has cut off the station’s access to the candidates and their wives.  If Obama wins, Channel 9 can expect its next FCC licensing renewal to go badly.  You think I exaggerate?  Not at all — the same “community organizing” tactics which worked so well to make housing affordable by having government coerce lenders to make bad loans, will also work by demanding that stations have more “local” content and more balance, even though consumers don’t want it.  And the slick thing is that they won’t even need to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine to achieve their goals.

An illegal president?

leave a comment »

U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick has rejected the suit by attorney Philip J. Berg, who alleged that Obama was not a U.S. citizen and is therefore ineligible for the presidency.


Surrick’s reasoning was that Berg, who is a Democrat and rather  eccentric, lacked standing to bring the case, saying any harm from an allegedly ineligible candidate was “too vague and its effects too attenuated to confer standing on any and all voters.”

What to make of a judge who finds that violating the Constitution has no effect on any voter?  Surrick was part of the deal Republicans struck with Democrats for a vote on FEC nominee Bradley Smith in 2000, meaning he is a Clinton appointee. Does that make you wonder?  It should.  After all, the lawsuit claiming McCain wasn’t a natural-born U.S. citizen because he was born in the Panana Canal Zone was dismissed on actual facts and history, not merely a judge’s belief.

This decision makes this column from Canada all the more important:
