Liberals would have us believe that pervasive voter fraud in the U.S. died out in the 1960’s when southern Democrats, who had successfully prevented blacks from exercising their right to vote for decades, were finally defeated with federal civil rights legislation. With the exception of the occasional dead person voting in Chicago and illegal alien showing up to the polls in North Carolina, Democrats describe voter fraud as something that went the way of the dodo bird, a myth as believable today as unicorns or fairy dust.
But of course Democratic voter fraud is alive and well in the new millennium. In 2000 Al Gore was nearly successful in stealing the presidency when thousands of Bush votes were fraudulently discounted because of “double-punching” in Florida, a condition that somehow only affected heavily Democratic districts in Palm Beach County. According to statistician Robert Cook, the national error rate for double-punched ballots was less than 1/2 of one percent. At that rate at most 1,800 double-punched ballots in all of Palm Beach County should have been discovered. However, the final tally of double-punched votes in Palm Beach County ended up being an astronomical 19,120, so far outside expected range that Cook suspected that only foul play could be responsible for the statistically impossible results.
Cook’s analysis of the vote totals in Florida include:
ONLY Palm Beach County Florida voters seem incapable of understanding and using this style of ballot.
Palm Beach County has an error rate TEN TIMES larger than reported in ANY other county in the nation using paper punch ballots!
ONLY in Palm Beach (and in ONLY the most heavily Democratic precincts) were 19,120 ballots rejected in 2000 for double punching….(This is a 4.4% error rate overall; in the rest of Florida there is less than 1/2 of ONE percent “double punch” error rate! (Unofficially, this error rate was 15% in predominately Afro-American precincts, and 10% in precincts with large numbers of Jewish retirees.) In strongly Republican precincts, the error rate was the “usual” 1/2 of one percent.)
ONLY in Palm Beach has the news media complained about “massive” ballot confusion. In the 43 counties in Missouri, also mostly Democratic voters, which use the same kind of ballot, there are NO complaints about “confused voters” at all. (St Louis Post Dispatch, Nov 8, 2000) Therefore, ONLY in Palm Beach FL do the Democrats have to “explain” a massive number of incorrect votes.
There is only one rational explanation for what Cook had uncovered: Democrat operatives (most likely ACORN) had been working overtime behind closed doors double punching thousands of ballots that had been cast for Bush.
Like their predecessors today’s Democrats have no problem committing massive voter fraud to win elections, though they’ve become a bit more sophisticated in their methods. No longer do liberals rely on overt measures like Klansman burning crosses in front of voting locations or threats of retaliation by Southern politicians against blacks. The modern way is done behind closed doors by average citizens where no one has to witness the unseemly process of stealing an election. Besides, it’s not like main stream media is going to be asking too many questions as long as the Democrat candidate wins.
The 2008 Democratic primary
From the beginning of the 2008 election season the entire world assumed that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic nominee for President. In terms of name recognition, fundraising superiority and political connections, Hillary was the vastly superior candidate. She had been in the White House for 8 years, served New York as Senator since 2001 and was a hero to the liberal community including many African Americans. Obama may have had some name recognition in some Democratic circles and garnered attention as the first legitimate black presidential candidate, but for the most part he was still a relative nobody.
Colossal ego withstanding, I highly doubt Obama entered the race with the realistic expectation that he would win. Like most first time presidential candidates he probably figured at the very least he’d make a national name for himself that would put him in a much better position to claim the nomination in 2012 or 2016.
As a freshman senator there really wasn’t much for Obama to do in Washington. The Senate is the ultimate seniority rules club. It can easily take 2 to 3 terms to attain any real power in the antiquated committee system. Besides, campaigning is about the only thing Obama is good at. So why not hit the road and promote what he loves most, himself?
While the entire world predicted the race would be over before it even started, Obama had two overwhelming advantages that no one, not Hillary, not the American people and most likely not even Obama himself saw coming.
1. Obama’s long-term relationship with ACORN. While Hillary had to build her own national network of grassroots supporters from scratch, Obama already had a readymade army of progressive radicals ready to bend every rule, break every law and crack every skull it took to get him elected. Who do you think it was running around poking wires through hundreds of Bush ballots in predominantly black communities in Florida in 2000? ACORN had been helping Democrats steal elections for years and when it comes to rigging the vote, they have no rivals.
2. The Democratic National Committee leadership was in the bag for Obama. Hillary may have had the support of the average Democratic voter, but the real powers behind the throne including Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and most importantly Howard Dean, Chairman of the DNC, wanted Obama to win. The liberal elite weren’t looking for a competing voice in their party, they wanted an empty suit. Someone that could serve as the face of the progressive movement, give good teleprompter and then hit the golf course for 18 holes while the adults in the room did the real work. In those respects the know nothing Obama was the ideal candidate.
In what would turn out to be the one of the most unexpected election victories in American history, Obama defeated the Clinton machine and in front of a crowd of 75,000 screaming fans at Ivesco field in Denver, accepted the Democratic nomination for President. It seemed a picture book victory, but what the adoring masses didn’t know, what few people outside of the Obama election team knew, was that he had earned his victory the old fashioned Democratic way: he stole it.
At about the same time of the Denver love fest movie producer Gigi Gaston, a lifelong Democrat and great granddaughter of William Gaston, former Democratic mayor of Boston and governor of Massachusetts, started hearing rumors that massive voter fraud in Texas had helped Obama clinch the Democratic primary win. Believing the rumors were some sort of right-wing hit job designed to embarrass Obama, Gaston did what she knew best. She grabbed a camera crew and headed to the Lone Star state to prove those dastardly conservatives wrong.
What Gaston discovered was far worse than anything that she could have possibly imagined. A proverbial mountain of evidence that the Obama campaign had “encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote.”
Gaston interviewed dozens of witnesses to produce the documentary We Will Not Be Silenced, a must view for every freedom loving American. As stated on the film’s website, “teachers, professors, civil rights activists, lawyers, janitors, physicists, ophthalmologists, accountants, mathematicians, retirees… discuss how their party has disenfranchised them, and how, when they saw and reported multiple instances of fraud, everyone turned a blind eye.”
Contrary to expectations, Obama was by no means the consensus choice in the black community. A large number of elderly black women had been waiting their entire lives to vote for a woman President, and Hillary was their choice. But Obama took advantage of the lack of oversight by federal election monitors, who only police general elections and not primaries which are run by the individual parties themselves, to station an ACORN army outside voting locations in black communities across the country to make sure that anyone who showed up to vote, only voted for him.
As exposed by Helene Latimer, a Civil Rights Activist who had marched with Martin Luther King, in We Will Not Be Silenced: “There was this lady, probably about 80 years old, who was slowly walking up the street. As she was approaching the entranceway to go into the building, one of the young men called to her ‘If you’re not voting for Obama, go home, because you’re not voting here today.’ She turned and walked away.”
The above situation replayed itself in minority communities throughout the nation where ACORN used young black men to intimidate elderly black women from voting for Hillary. The almost universal support for Obama was stunning to the Hillary campaign:
Obama has swamped Clinton among black voters in each of the 20 contests that had exit polls and large enough samples of African Americans to be meaningful. Just to put that kind of shutout in perspective, black voters represent the only demographic group that the New York senator has not carried at least once during the Democratic primary campaign. Obama now has such a lock on the loyalties of African Americans — 84 percent of the black vote in Alabama, 87 percent in Georgia, 84 percent in Maryland, and on and on — that the black vote is no longer contestable.
Obama and ACORN’s voter intimidation tactics were particularly reprehensible considering the victims of their crimes. These were black women who had lived through the worst of segregation and fought for their civil rights decades before only to see their right to vote taken away by fellow African Americans simply because there was a black candidate on the ballot.
High school students in Gary, Indiana were given the day off of school and bused to the polls to vote for Obama, elderly women in Iowa were denied admittance to the caucuses if they were wearing Hillary stickers and caucus delegates in California were pressured to illegally change their votes from Hillary to Obama.
There were thousands of complaints filed by Hillary supporters in Texas alone where an El Paso caucus official personally witnessed “stolen precincts where Obama organizers fabricated counts, made false entries on sign-in sheets, suppressed delegate counts, and suppressed caucus voters… Although I have only volunteered in one state, virtually every Clinton staffer I have talked to has similar stories from other caucus states.”
During the campaign Hillary repeatedly tried to alert the Democratic Party leadership to the voter fraud being committed by Obama. She sent multiple letters to the DNC and press that detailed the “lock-out of Clinton caucus goers by the Obama campaign”, “numerous reports that the Obama campaign is violating Texas Democratic Party rules by circulating precinct convention sheets in advance and having them fill them in now” and “prematurely taking precinct convention packets by Obama campaign”.
According to Hillary, “The campaign legal hotline has been flooded with calls containing specific accusations of irregularities and voter intimidation against the Obama campaign. This activity is undemocratic, probably illegal, and reflects a wanton disregard for the caucus process… Numerous calls have been received that the Obama campaign has taken over caucus sites and locked the doors, excluding Clinton campaign supporters from participating in the caucus. The Clinton supporters have been unable to enter the premises to caucus. In at least one instance, law enforcement was called and forcibly opened the caucus site.”
Appearing in We Will Not Be Silenced, Dr. Linda Hayes investigated how Obama was able to win caucuses in neighborhoods where he had lost the popular vote:
Hillary attained 51% of the votes in Texas and by popular vote Obama only attained 47.4%. As a scientist and mathematician I was curious as the results came in from the precincts and that the precinct caucuses did not reflect those numbers, so I could see something was wrong… We laboriously went through each of the (caucus) sign in sheets to see if they were properly filled out… and many, many, many Obama people either came to the wrong precinct, they did not sign in properly, they did not show ID, or they had not voted that day… How they determine the delegates is on these sign in sheets. So when so many people were registered illegally for Obama, they attained the lion’s portion of the delegates.
So how did all these extra people magically appear at caucuses they had no business attending? In a word, ACORN. According to Bettina Sofia Viviano, producer of We Will Not Be Silenced, “a lot of time small towns would see busloads of black kids showing up that didn’t live there.” ACORN had illegally flooded caucus locations throughout the country with Obama supporters. Even though Hillary won the popular vote by 1.4%, caucuses accounted for 15% of the total delegates which gave Obama the edge he needed to claim the nomination.
According to the El Paso caucus official, “Although the Hillary campaign has not gone public with evidence of fraud, the national legal team has approximately 200 such affidavits and 2000 voter complaints.” Hillary has all the evidence in her possession to prove Obama stole the primary, but rather than go public with the documentation and expose Obama for the crook that he is, she played Judas to millions of her supporters and accepted the Secretary of State job.
The voter fraud committed by Obama was of historic proportions. There were literally thousands of participants and the evidence was easily visible to anyone who would bother to look. And what did the DNC do to address fraud of such immense proportions that we literally have an illegitimate President sitting in the White House? Not one damn thing.
As DNC Chairman in 2008 it was Howard Dean’s job to make sure the Democratic primary election and caucuses were conducted lawfully. Rather than live up to his responsibilities and protect the voter rights of millions of his fellow Democrats, Dean turned a blind eye to the illegal behavior openly practiced by Obama supporters. He never responded to Hillary’s letters, ignored hundreds of reports of voter fraud, and didn’t lift a finger to protect thousands of elderly black women from having their votes stolen.
Dean has since leveled numerous accusations of racism against Republicans who are opposed to Obama’s big government agenda. In 2010 he accused the Tea Party as having a “racist fringe”, labeled Fox News as “absolutely racist”, and called Glen Beck a “racist hate-monger”. But it is Dean who acted like a modern day plantation owner when he decided blacks couldn’t be trusted to make their own decision about who they wanted to nominate for President.
