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

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.

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:
