KUHNER: Will Obama steal the 2012 election?
The Washington Times ^ | 12/30/11 | Jeffrey Kuhner

Posted on 12/31/2011 8:47:39 PM PST by markomalley

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning. In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation. He said that a growing number of minorities fear that “the same disparities, divisions and problems” now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act. According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.

Mr. Holder argues that voter ID laws disproportionately discriminate against poor blacks and Hispanics - citizens who cannot afford to acquire a driver’s license, passport or other form of photo identification. The latest victim is South Carolina; its voter ID law has been blocked by the Justice Department. Liberal Democrats - taking their cue from the White House - are portraying the national movement for election reform as an authoritarian assault upon civil liberties. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has even petitioned the United Nations, asking it to declare states’ voter ID laws human rights abuses. For the radical left, America has become Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

This would be comical if the consequences were not so serious. South Carolina’s legislation provides for free ID cards to be given to anyone who needs it. Not one person - white, black or brown - is discriminated against or discouraged from casting a vote at the ballot box. Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue - upholding state voter ID laws.

When the Attorney General of the United States of America has to sink so low as to use the race card against the American people, you know this country is in deep kimchi. Eric the Holder really needs to resign. He’s in over his head.

“The latest victim is South Carolina; its voter ID law has been blocked by the Justice Department.”

Holder’s reasoning appears to be that if he delivers 900 percent of the vote, Obama won’t have to steal the election.

Only in that he is being unforgivably clumsy (at least, to his string-pullers) in carrying our their orders and furthering their agenda.

In being such an incompentent buffoon, he exposes his master's wishes. Unfortunately, they wish to remain unexposed, hence his obvious public anxiety these days.

Just look at the BS that has happened in Wisconsin this past year to see what the unionista thugs and their enablers in the media, the radical left, the black militants, the unwashed masses (aka hippie Occupiers, and their corrupt political cronies (i.e “Fleabaggers”) are capable of and you’ll have a preview of the Obama Playbook for 2012.

They will make Alinsky proud, I have no doubt.

Does a bear use the woods as a rest room? Do policemen like donuts? Do Progressives like to call Conservatives Nazis? Are Democrats adolescent, psychotic punks?
Do moronic Democrats, who think of themselves brilliant, love to wear t-shirts with Che Guevarra’s picture on them? Are airplanes designed to fly through the air? Do fish swim? Do snakes like to slither on the ground? Are Democrats oleoaginous serpents? And last of all, are Democrats really, really scu*bags?

Section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act grants the Department of Justice the power to block any state law concerning the voting process...in fourteen states.

And only those fourteen states.

Never mind that the South Carolina law is word-for-word identical to the Indiana law -- which was approved in full by SCOTUS. Eric Holder has the power to block the law in South Carolina (but he didn't have it in Indiana).

He will lose in court, of course. But, in the meantime, he will delay its implementation as long as he can.

Is Section 5 constitutional, since it applies to only fourteen states? Of course not. And it was this feature that led Barry Goldwater to famously vote against the Voting Rights Act, claiming (rightly) that it should apply to every state. For his trouble, the Democrats labelled him "racist" -- a title that tars all Republicans even today.

Now you now...

to get food stamps you must bare your sole to the Federal, State Government.

the personal identifying information is limitless..totally demanding..had several friends actually cry about it..they were devastated.

Eric Holder is a crook, thug, jerk, and many more titles I would like to bestow upon him...and his side kick Hussein...or maybe I should say Hussein and his side kick..which ever fits.

Unfortunately it's not illegal. In the voting rights act congress gave the DOJ the right to approve any any changes to voting laws in specific southern states that had a history of discrimination. Now SC will have to go to the courts to get the DOJ's decision reversed, Gov. Haley has issued a statement that she intends to.

I would add to okie's good reply that the Fourteenth Amendment provides only one remedy to complaints of voter suppression, and that remedy is applied by the House of Representatives if needed. That is proportionate reduction of the delegation of representatives from a State so accused, to the House.

How and why this use of a "remedy" against a State, as well as the application of violent coercion to a State by factional owners of the federal government, is all part of the debris left behind by Abraham Lincoln and the Northern business interests' war to subjugate the South.

Thanks to you and to Lentulus Grachus (Salve Te!) for the answer. The State of S. Carolina should still ignore the order and let the DOJ take them to court. Civil disobedience (disobeying an unjust law) in its highest form.

‘Can somebody explain to me how the Justice Department on its own can block any State law?’

What’s the problem? All the Justice Department has to do is conjure up a “Civil Right”. When black dudes with billy clubs were scaring white folks away from a polling place in Philadelphia, the victims of this intimidation issued a complaint. It got all the way to Holder, who decided that the right to vote was a “civil right”. Since “Civil Rights” are intended to protect black people, the White victims were out of luck and the case was dropped.

Note that in the posted article, Holder specifically refers to the “Voting Rights Act” of 1965, which outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African Americans. From Wikipedia, the act “established extensive federal oversight of elections administration, providing that states with a history of discriminatory voting practices” and “could not implement any change affecting voting without first obtaining the approval of the Department of Justice.”

You know what if minorites can’t get off their lazy butts and apply for ID - say a birth certificate and then submit that to their local electoral office then they really don’t deserve the opportunity to vote.

In Australia you can’t vote if your not on the elctoral roll and you can’t get on the electoral role unless you provide specific proof of indentity and place of residence and, if an immigrant, your paperwork in regards to your status. If you change adresses you are required to inform the electoral people within three months.

There are other requirements of the electoral act that make it compulsory to vote once you are on the role which would not please many in the USA I am sure and also penalties for not voting.

But I think overall at least we know who it is that is actually voting and that illegal immigrants would not bother trying.

Of course they will try to steal this election.You could see that they are already well underway if you understand how they work. They continue to rot the republic from within like termites and borers and other vermin.

Democrats accuse others of what they are actually already doing themselves....no one seems to get that though!

...”Can somebody explain to me how the Justice Department on its own can block any State law? I expect stupidity from journalists but this is at a level that surprises even me”...

In a nation which has seen it’s Constitution stepped on and set aside to the point that we are no longer free, what can we expect? It seems that our leaders just throw out the most ridiculous thing they can just to see if they can make it stick with the American people, laws be damned! What nation can think that elections are even important if no identification of it’s citizens is possible at the voting booth? Without that, our system disintegrates into a giant criminal enterprise and I think we may be about there, if the last election and ACORN are any evidence. Just remember, evil triumphs when good men/women do nothing.

Another way to cook the data. I check S Carolina's demographics and the whites outnumber the Blacks over 2:1, and the persentages without IDs is White *.6%/Black 10%, which means twice as many Whites would be "disenfranchised" by the disparity which is very small percentage wise.

Yes, but having worked in the past for Subsidized Housing (Section 8) I can tell you that non-caucasians get “rubber stamped” into these programs. The case worker/examiner is far more likely to “overlook” any missing information with a non-caucasian client than with whites. In fact, usually they put whites through 100 flaming hoops just to deny them on a technicality.

These case examiners don’t want any ‘trouble’ from community organizers or negative publicity in the lamestream media. I personally was told, upon finding massive fraud, to “turn my head, look the other way and keep those checks rolling” and “we don’t get administrative fees for cutting people off the program.” Even though there was a waiting list a mile long (mostly miscreants but a few people that actually DID need the help but who you knew WOULD be turned down for being 5 cents over the income limit.

I’ve seen non-caucasians come in wearing work IDs from what were the “big three” (kodak, xerox, bauch & lomb) back in the early nineties who would claim they were unemployed (although union workers making $20 an hour to turn a screw) and the case worker would just “turn her head and look the other way”

Not to go off topic but anectdotally, I have a bi-racial son and a caucasian daughter(all grown now; productive citizens, son going off to serve in the Air Force tomorrow) and for a few months I qualified for “reduced rate” school lunches for them both. Same income; same household. My daughter’s app would IMMEDIATELY be questioned and audited, whereas my son’s NEVER EVER came into question.

I asked the school officials why this was; they had no answer but just stuttered in Obama-like fashion.
