UN monitors already observing Ohio elections to combat ‘voter suppression’
Twitchy ^ | 10/25/12

Posted on 10/25/2012 7:33:48 PM PDT by markomalley

Since when does the UN’s job include supervising American elections? Since progressive groups decided that conservatives have made it their mission to cruelly prevent people from voting. As Twitchy reported last week, a UN-affiliated group is deploying “observers” from Europe to keep their eyes out for voter suppression. Some of those observers are already on the ground in Ohio:

Election monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), an organization organized under the United Nations Charter, have already begun observing Ohio’s election proceedings. OSCE plans to deploy a total of 44 European observers across America in response to claims from progressive groups that conservative groups seek to disenfranchise minority voters.

True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht rightly blasted the UN’s involvement:

“It’s puzzling that these activist groups that have spent literally millions of dollars fighting reasonable policies like voter ID – that most Americans support – would call on a United Nations affiliated organization to monitor American elections! The U.N. itself is hardly a model of governmental integrity,” Engelbrecht said.

“What’s even more baffling is that these activist groups asked international monitors to help stop the purported suppression caused by photo voter ID laws - yet all the monitors are from countries with comprehensive photo voter ID laws,” Engelbrecht added.

It’s more than puzzling, more than baffling; it’s infuriating. And wrong. Ohio residents are livid:

@OhioAG Please follow suit with @GregAbbott_TX and tell the @UN to keep their grimy fingers out of our elections here in #Ohio. #tcot #GOP

@JohnKasich Governor, are you REALLY going to allow UN observers in here to observe our election? ohio.mediatrackers.org/2012/10/25/un-…

@imsure I am from Ohio and cannot believe they want the UN here to watch us vote!—

In another groin kick to our collective national pride, the UN has election monitors here. Why? ohio.mediatrackers.org/?p=6791 Thank a liberal.—

It’s disgusting. We suggest that the UN stick to what it does best: nothing. Leave us alone.

@izzysroses Ohio, kick out UN monitors—

This is an indication of where our country is heading when we let a pack of friggin foreigners come here to tell us how to run an election.

Get the UN out of America, and America out of the UN.

Let’s know our facts to make intelligent arguments:

In 1975 Gerald Ford, Leonid Brezhnev and 33 other heads of state gathered to sign the final agreement creating the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe [OCSE], thus agreeing to, among other things, election monitoring by other member states.

So the monitors are legally here, but we need to strongly argue that the US needs to get out of the OCSE.

I would love for that monkey to show up at my voting place on Nov 6. One of us would be sorry that he got up that morning.

Why would the UN monitor the U.S. Election so? Because they want to make sure THEIR guy is elected as the leader of the one world government that’s been secretly set in place...

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

As I ahve said many times here.

Fill the bunkers of the USS New Jersey, now docked in Camden, with fuel oil and light the boilers.
Load up several salvoes worth of 16 inch rounds.
Sail down the Delaware, up the Jersey Shore, and into New York Harbor.
Continue north up the East River.
After passing under the Manhattan Bridge, turn A, B, and X turrets to port.
At 42nd Street, the target will be at point blank range.
FIRE!
FIRE!
FIRE!

Oh, c'mon. The possibilities for amusement here are endless. I mean, just get James O'Keefe and Veritas to bait the "monitors" with hookers and suitcases full of cash and get it all on video and posted to YouTube.

They need to take their lard a$$es to Downtown Detroit to do some observing. Lets see how good they are at staying alive, in addition to observing voting.

The vote monitoring wasn’t added until The Charter of Paris for a New Europe on November 21, 1990 .

Let me guess:

Cleveland

Cincinnati

Columbus

Toledo

Dayton

?????

i.e., all the inner-city tribal parasite mecca's where Fraud, multi-voting, dead voting, and 95% Messiah Voting occurs, which are the ONLY places the Illegal Vote Monitors (i.e., Foreigners who don't belong in polling places in the USA) will be stationed.

F Gerald Ford, he’s dead and F that commie rat Brezhnev, he’s dead too. Any loyal American knows or should know UN treaties and agreements don’t mean squat to most Americans. No FReeper should EVER respect anything coming from the UN. If any of these Marxist/Socialist goons so up anywhere near my voting place I’ll raise such a stink it’ll make the news.

Yeah, but trouble is Fred, you’ll end up causing a lot of damage to a good part of Manhattan, like Grand Central Station which is just up the block. I agree with you, believe me. A better course would be to sail her up the Hudson to say a mile or two above the GW Bridge and train the guns to port and then hit the UN. The shells would be heading south, over Manhattan itself and you would have the benefit of plunging fire. Heck, you’d probably end up causing the whole rotten thing to fall into the East River after about three or four salvos.

Can we start an email / phone blitz to Gov. Kasich. He’s a good guy, maybe he can set the State Troopers to monitor the monitors. If not at least they can put out a call for extra Ohio residents to work as volunteers for poll watchers, and workers.
