When you have a government--judicial, congressional, executive--that have no accountability the door is open.

That this has hit the world stage is no surprise.

That soldier that allegedly killed those 16 in F ghanistan just handed us the keys to the kingdom.

In 2008, the United States Supreme Court upheld the voter photo ID law enacted in Indiana.

That list boils down to some British Commonwealth and former Commonwealth countries plus three. I’m sure the UN will understand the Democrat’s handwringing. /s

In Mexico, there is a general electoral census. Any citizen of age 18 or greater must go to an electoral office in order be registered into the electoral census. Citizens receive a voting card (credencial de elector con fotografía), issued by the Federal Electoral Institute (IFE) that must be shown to vote in any election. The voting card also serves as a national identity document.

Maybe the UN should pick on Mexico and it’s “Oppressive” voting system which is un-fair to minorities, especially all of the Mexicans who live there.

The UN is INVESTIGATING the USA over voting rights.

How quaint.

Cut them off and give them a 30 day eviction notice.

Then demolish the building and sell the lot to the highest bidder at auction.

We need elections like the kind they have in Venezuela. :)

We might end up with a General Pinochet.

Since FR has an abuse policy I will not comment on what the UN can do with their opinion on our election law.

As far as I’m concerned, they can shove it up their azz.

This really is a tactic that undercuts the growth of your democracy," said Hillary Shelton


democracy = mob rule

That's why we're a Constitutional Republic

It is also why we are a "nation of laws and not men."

Of course the SCOTUS upheld the voter photo ID law but Holder doesn’t give a crap what the SCOTUS has ruled, he will continue to poke them in the eye because that’s what Communist do.

Good post!

It is also why the UN has absolutely NO say in our election laws, or any other laws for that matter. Clue for them, we are a sovereign nation. Butt out! And if any of our Governors or legislators even suggest following their edict after there so called investigation, impeach them/force them out of office!

“What the Rats refuse to realize is that many of the third world countries already have voter ID laws.”

This is about power, not logic. UN may go along with this because it diminishes US power globally, and moves us closer to Global Socialism.

Just putting Libya and Saudi on the Human Rights Commission should be clue enough as to what’s up.

While it is true we don’t have a National ID card here in the UK, and have no obligation to show any ID in order to vote, we have to show our polling card, which is delivered to the house by the postal service three weeks prior to the election. A yellow card for local elections, a white card for national ones.

We can vote in one named polling station - named on the polling card - and that polling station only, and our card gets stamped when we receive our voting form to prevent a return visit.
All requests for an absentee/postal ballot have to be received by the local council 6 weeks before the election, so you do not get your polling card. Miss the deadline and you either show up or lose your vote.
It ain’t exactly photo ID, but in a designated polling station, with people who know you - the polling stations are based on neighborhood - it is a pretty good system for a people that flat out reject the idea of a National ID card.

We used to be, but no more after the Chicago mob took over. The Constitution is shredded by Zero and Holder almost on a daily basis, and between those two and Crappy Nappy they decide which laws they like and ignore the ones they dislike. AND then they turn around and sue the states they have a gripe with.

A quick addendum:

You can get away without showing your polling card if you provide proof of address - normally a recent utility bill or bank statement. You then get crossed off the voter list as you vote, just as if you had presented your polling card.

Hispanics complain that the voter ID laws unfairly target them.

If they have no ID, how do they get to work, get groceries, and travel to and from Mexico to visit relatives in this most 9-11 society where you have to have a passport to go to Mexico and Canada?

“America the beautiful
March 14, 2012 at 11:21 pm

Our collapse has been in play for some time. Clinton ( more Hillary than Bill) and their progressive/socialist minions on the left began the financial destruction with the alliance of Subprime-loans and the CRA, the Community Reinvestment Act, …Which in combination with a host of other tangential fraud undermined the banks …as they were forced to make ill-conceived and ill-advised loans that would crush housing values and the efficacy of the mortgage contract.

The mortgage had managed to be the floor or the stabilising force of America’s banks along with the legal contract. Contracts that are met and enforced by our laws…our banking system, our courts. The ill conceived loans gave birth to the ill advised investment vehicles, CDS etc., These have been repeatedly bundled and have yet to be reengineered, reverse engineered or in some way cut from our economy… leaving in place a metasticizing cancer at the core of our economy, requiring a financial surgeon who will know how to aptly deal with it rather than an autocrat or a theorising professor.

The legal contract and private property are core components of our constitution and our economy.

With the breakdown of our banks and laws, the crippling of our economy has made us vulernable particularly in concert with Obama spending us into oblivion, which Is primary to his destructive plan. With a distracted and downtrodden, and he hopes soon, a desperate citizenry, we are ripe for a takeover by the Global Banking system that was part and parcel of this scheme. (see Soros on collapse of currency)

Environmentalism is the mask by which the globalists manage and control. Through ventures like Obama’s CCX, cap and trade is simply a vehicle to tax and instil fear. Don’t believe Obama ever believed in Solyndra or any green energy. It was strictly another avenue to transfer wealth to his team and break our bank as he spent us into the rabbit hole…these schemes have had forerunners in Europe where the proponents are referred to as “Watermelons”… Green on the outside, red inside. It is communism through energy control, wealth transfer and redistributive taxation. Obama is collapsing our country into the hands of the UN and the IMF.

There are many pieces to his scheme that were obvious to the curious or suspicious.

1.) The Gulf Spill: The spill began with two men atop the rig fighting. One died. The spill then happened… Why has there been no investigation as to what began that spill and consideration of sabotage? Obama’s partner in the CCX, the Chicago Climate Exchange is British Petroleum and Soros.
Obama dragged his heels for months… for an inexplicably long long time…Refusing tanker vacuums… Closing all drilling in the gulf states..killing their economy and sending our rigs to Brazil and Pertobas with billions in loans of US dollars through the IMF, where Soros and others not only were the recipients of their benefactor but more importantly the price of oil is driven upward, upward, upward. Think it’s high now? Wait until after the election should Obama win.

2.) I believe the first TARP had to happen to stop the collapse of many of our banks. Congress, because of their mandate to write subprime loans, held responsibility to the banks. While Goldman and others had pushed the ill advised investments– the bundled mortgages originated from Congress’s mandate and their GSE banking vehicles Fannie and Freddie whom had been most egregious of all with thieving progressives at the helm? With the collapse came the fear of the raiding of America’s enterprise system by many. We could not simply sell off the country for pennies on the dollar. Perhaps we should have…

However the Federal Reserve and Bernanke undermined us. Bernanke kept interest rates ridiculously low as he, printed dollars into infinity for further Quantitative Easing, QE1, QE2, with QE3 in transit. This printing of dollars was direct and absolute theft out of your bank account and your future bank account. Your values have been cut almost in half…And the socialists claim for an embrace of Keynesian economics, that in fact Keynes had disavowed, was but a Trojan Horse as they emptied our banks.

The Fed made loans and they were made not to the engines of the free enterprise system of the USA but to Europe, to their banks..where their mutual destruction is assured by the use and contagion of the Euro….and their unsustainable debt, particularly of the PIGS…Portugal,Ireland, Spain and Greece. Look into Soros and the socialist Lagarge’s involvement in the creation of the EU.

The USA and Germany are are bailing but it is a matter of time…and their collapse will effectively bring about our collapse, through lost trade, investments, etc …That is the scenario which will bring about a global currency via the IMF with the UN claiming world governance.

3.) Pigford, The New Black Panthers, Fast and Furious are examples of Obama using his Justice Department to break down our rule of law, and the utter destruction of our constitution.

Pigford is Obama’s first step toward the logical conclusion to his retributive, redistributive answer to the CRT, Critical Racal Theory.

Fast and Furious was a two fold scheme to put pressure on the Second Amendment in order to gain backing to take away the rights of citizens to own and bear arms And to continue the use of drugs and drug cartels to launder their illegal drug monies which continue to fund the progressive party through those laundered monies?

The Black Panthers will be used again to strike fear and intimidate at the next election…We have not seen the end of Obama and Holders army whom they continue to encourage and inflame.

4.) The Kestone Pipeline is another avenue where Obama has stopped drilling to keep us oil starved and dependent while claiming the need to use less of the worlds oil supply than the USA is entitled to…Meanwhile Obama’s arsonist operatives in the Midfle East setting fires. Trumka, Stern (“workers of the world unite”) ACORN were all in Egypt and the Middle East….why? To create chaos and instability. Instability in the Middle East drives up the price of oil. The high price of oil creates a transference of wealth out of the USA.

Understand the dollars value has been tied to the price of oil since Nixon took us off the Gold Standard. Saudi and the OPEC agreed that the dollar would be the currency with which to sell and buy oil, protecting the value of the dollar and tying directly to the price of oil…And with Obama’s freeze on drilling here, driving the price up through chaos in the Middle East….we are further weakened, impacted and redistributing our countries wealth.

5.) Obama and his minions have gone for social deconstruct through Obamacare. Secular moral lessons of amorality are being forced upon the people, the family and the churches.
When 2013 and implementation arrives you will understand our flag is in the midst of being captured.

The secular society with it’s rules and its costs will be the handcuffs of socialism…but with Obama there will be a retribution factor that becomes more obvious and can best be understood by understanding CRT, Critical Race Theory. Which is why it was so important Obama’s relationship to Rev Wright be ignored and that his relationship to and endorsement of and the teaching of Prof. Derrick Bell’s CRT be hidden from the voting public.

CRT, in short, is to use racism as repeated, unrelenting criticism of our constitution so as to deconstruct your constitutional rights.

The left has long used the judicial branch to create law from the bench rather than follow the law of the land…the constitution.

6.) These forces at work with Obama not only want a tranference of the wealth and treasure of the USA into their hands, and the transference of our free market prizes into their accounting column… They hold in concert their common hatred and their hope for the complete and utter destruction of Israel.

The world is realigning in part because of a weak anti-American President and a weakend America but also because of the rise of the Globalists, the IslamoFascists and the dogs of socialism and communism.

Obama’s reticence with Iran has nothing to do with stopping them from going nuclear..It is because he wants to be seen as such …as he nudges them toward Israel and war.

We stand at the abyss. We have little chance to pull this back …but it can be done.

Do not let the muzzle of PC language silence you. Time is short. Watch Obama and note he is moving much more rapidly. Netanyahu understood. I pray we can stop this evil.”

Someone is Being Breitbart. All of us had better be.

Spread this far and wide, please
