All Americans will resent this. Good for local news. Dems insulting our entire election system.

Also good because it hurts Obama and Rat reporters likely too dumb to figure that out.

Regarding Muslims killing Muslims:
1. Subsidize such Muslim on Muslim crime if it reduces the population of Muslims.
2. Muslim on Muslim non-lethal crime is “de minimus” unless said Muslim is “on a child or livestock. In such cases, terminate.
3. As Islam is, by the repeated statements of MadMo, in a perpetual state of war with all of the “unclean non-Muslims”, and as “Jihad is the Muslim way”, accept that Islam is antithetical to, and irreconcilable with, America.

Carry out the wisdom of St. Ann - “Invade them, convert them, or kill them.”

Anne Uhlig, the other election "observer" in Indiana/Michigan, is on the left. This picture is from an election "observation" in Tunisia in 2011:

Partial biography:

Anne Uhlig earned a Ph.D. degree in Cultural Anthropology in 2010 after several years of field work in Deaf communities. The resulting thesis “Ethnography of the Deaf. Culture – Communication – Community” was published in 2011. Anne has worked at the State Ethnographic Collections of Saxony in the department of the Americas and taught various courses at the Institute for Ethnology at the University of Leipzig, focusing on the politics of indigenous minorities in the Americas, Native American literature, and auto-ethnography. Her current research interests are focused on the concept of the Deaf nation, sign language literature, and on questions of translation between spoken and signed language.

This is what I've found so far regarding Soren Sunderstrup, Denmark, who will be an observer in Denver, Colorado:

He advertises for work on ACE network, formerly UNDESA, a UN group for social affairs

found at: http://aceproject.org/electoral-advice/author/sonderstrup

Gender

Male
Homepage
www.c4c.dk
Affiliation
Other
I am interested in receiving offers for assignments or jobs Soren Sonderstrup

On that ACE site he says his homepage is "www.c4c.dk" and I assume the "soso" in the email "soso@c4c.dk" is SOrenSOnderstrup

Contact

Tlf: 617 00 613

Mail: soso@c4c.dk

C4C is a not-for-profit company that provides advise on matters of media, communication and culture in the support of democracy, human rights and conflict resolution.

C4C assists organisations and international donors in media development, media monitoring and creative projects.

found at: http://www.c4c.dk/C4C/About.html

On his site, following links, there is a link to a Soren Sonderstrup article about using media with disadvantaged people, entitled "Media democratization, new formats, stories, and audiences", a quote following:

Through analysis and field observations of a documentary film project in Tanzania in 2010 involving an eclectic mix of approaches (theatre for development, film for change, applied visual anthropology and creative observational documentary), the ubiquity of all pervasive mediatization became apparent. And it turned my attention towards shifts in the uses and perceptions of media that are taking place as a consequence of the web 2.0 -from community media to many-to-many or citizens’ media formats. The article suggest that these forms of democratized communication are especially relevant in marginalised environments, because they bear the promise of shifts in power relations and social changes through inclusion of hitherto cut off life experiences and their mediation into global networks of communication. This is the case whether they be interpreted positively as empowering disadvantaged people, or negatively as subordinating them to the well known features of globalising capitalist media — commodification, standardization, privatization, co-option, surveillance etc. (See for instance Mansell & Nordenstreng, 2007). found at: http://www.c4c.dk/C4C/media_democratization.html

As you can see, Soren Sonderstrup is anti-capitalist

He is ALSO another media person, doing articles and media productions. I would assume he'll be filming in Denver, Colorado.

Sorry, paste problems on my last post.

Who may be a watcher?
People appointed by political parties or independent candidates and members of the media

When can a watcher enter a polling place?
As early as 5:30AM on Election Day

What is a watcher barred from doing at a polling place?
Interfering with voters or officials, handling election materials, and observing how a particular voter votes

So, to be a watcher in Indiana, one must have been appointed by a candidate or member of the media. Who appointed Bolat Bersebayev and Anne Uhlig to be poll watchers in Indiana?

“the ubiquity of all pervasive mediatization became apparent”

Some encounter truth on the road to Damascus, some while fighting through the umbilicus lint on their way to “inner insight”.

And some just need a plexiglas naval to make possible sufficient visual clarity to observe sufficiently for their “election monitoring duties”.

Oh well, let them try Austin. I just heard from a friend in Austin that Travis County is way down in vote count from last election and that the numbers show that the University students are not voting in numbers as they did in 2008. This is good news. The University students are not energized as they were in 2008.

Hartwig Hans Kaboth of Germany is the other UNer for Santa Fe and Phoenix...not much on him except he is a long-time UN observer and was at the Belarus elections in 2010. Interesting article about Arizona’s AG saying they will not be allowed in the polling place.

Also from the same article “The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) (a partner of the UN) will be sending 44 observers to locations throughout the US on Election Day to keep an eye out for ”voter suppression activities by conservative groups“. “ <-—the UN is targeting Conservatives...

I’d be down for requiring a thumb print on every ballot and the last 4 digits of a verified social security number on each ballot. This is AFTER requiring a photo i.d. to even get a ballot in the first place.

Make the security stringent and it makes the vote valuable. Easily gotten benefits (I know there’s a better word that can be substituted but my brain’s malfunctioning today) aren’t treated as dearly as those that are earned through legitimate effort.

I e-mailed Jim DeMint here in SC, along with the list. (I’m calling his office first thing Monday)

the list.

I re-posted the list on Facebook and other social sites.

If there is any other actions I could take, I’m open to suggestions.

Good work, Laz.

I look at this from a slightly different point of view. I see this as political payoff to a variety of socialist and politically connected individuals from each of the countries that are sending observers. By doing so, the U.N. is thus giving these chosen ones a free vacation trip, all expenses paid, to the U.S., a country they undoubtedly would not otherwise easily be able to afford to visit. In other words, an excuse to reward politically connected stoolies from other countries, partially at our own expense, I might add, as the U.N. is funded disproportionately by the U.S. Nice gigs if you can score one. All you have to be is a liberal commie/socialist/pinko hack and you get a reward, poll observer and free trip to the U.S.

Frankfort, Kentucky? I don't want these folks here in the first place, but why did they pick Frankfort? Sure it's the state capital, but it is tiny in comparison to Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, and Covington.

The only thing I can think of is the fact that the Buffalo Trace bourbon distillery is just outside Frankfort and the Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey distilleries are located just down the road.

We’ve got similar regulations on “poll watchers” in Florida. I just fired off emails to my county supervisor of elections and to Governor Scott to find out how they plan to handle these “UN Observers” if they show up at a Florida polling place. This is an outrageous affront to our sovereignty that must be stopped. I’ll follow up with phone calls next week if I don’t get prompt replies.

1) Those people are not UN, but OSCE observers.
OSCE is Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
Though 56 countries including US and Canada are members of this organisation.
2) OSCE sends observers to all elections within participating states, excluding Monaco and Vatican. This is not the first nor the last time OSCE observes elections in US.
3) It is an obligation of participating states to invite observers for their elections. Rules are equal for all participants. Thus observers apart of coming to Balkan and post CIA countries come to Germany, Austria, UK and Denmnark, Sweden and Canada. Norway and Finland.
4) US citizens are part of every OSCE mission, and are enlisted as observers to all missions (except US, to protect impartiality). For example, there were a lot of US citizens as observes within OSCE mission in Georgia (country in South Caucasus) and in Russia.
5) Regarding “Are they going to do something about...”. No. They are not to react on violations, they are to observe and not to interfere. Thus the only thing they can potentially do, is to raise it with the authorities, and writing about it in the report. Then it is up to the US to do or not to do something about it.

1) I worked with them on a number of missions in a number of countries. I have nothing to do with US Mission, nor had anything to do with any of US missions in the past. Currently i am not employed with them, but i might apply for some mission after Christmas. Thus my posts do not reflect opinion of the mission, ODIHR or OSCE. Though as a person who worked and perhaps will work with ODIHR in the future i have good practical understanding, how do they work, and what is their scope of operations in US. Considered these posts as a background information provided by a person, who claims to be related to some EOMs, but not US in particular.

2) I’ve worked with a number of Long Term Observers (LTOs)as well as the core team, that are part of this US mission, although not with all of them.
LTO list (similar to the one presented here) could be found here. http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/94918
Main difference is that no regions are assigned in the public document
Core Team list (experts based in Washington DC) could be found here.
http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/94920

3) As for liberalh8ter’s 2008 videos. It was different mission back then. All reports were officially released back in 2008-9. (All reports are here http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/usa/general_2008)
Now it’s different mission with different mandate and different composition. Your videos might be interesting to them from the perspective of these elections, but facts related to these elections are their scope of observation. Thus i suggest, if you want to reach them to focus on the problems that happen during these elections and this campaign.

4) The preliminary statement is usually released next day after elections. Final report is released in 6-8 weeks after elections, however the observers depart several days after elections (i’m not aware of detailed deployment plan, but usually Core Team stays up to 10-14 days after Eday, LTOs stay up to 4-6 days after Eday). If you have something that is worth their attention, i urge you to contact them ASAP.

5) In their work observers always differ allegations and evidence. Thus in their reports they can rely either on first hand observation, or on credible and verified information from a second hand source. Thus video footage could be taken into consideration, if it is clear, what is going on (and not something, one needs explanations on).

6) Observers don’t follow hotspots in their observation, especially on the election day, but do random observations polling station by polling station. What you see in the deployment plan are their bases. From their bases they travel usually outside of the cities. The purpose is to get statistically relevant picture throughout the country, as following all polling stations in US is impossible. if they follow only hotspots - results will get distorted

7) Observers do not estimate, whether elections were free, fair, democratic, etc. The observe against OSCE commitments, signed by all participating states. (this is an outdated document but it gives you an idea http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/13957)

8) As for my registration. I am not american, and i don’t live in US (i’m sure it is visible from my English). I’ve signed up to speak about things i know - meaning Election Observation Mission, as i see, that topic has become quite speculative. Thus my political preferences in my own country is of no importance here. I just want to help understanding, what are those observers about.

Here is the email reply I received today after following up with Lori Scott, Brevard County Florida Supervisor of Elections:

“Thank you for contacting me with your inquiry regarding international observers at polling locations.

International observers will not be allowed inside Brevard County polling locations.

Florida law (s. 102.031(3)(a), Fla. Stat.) prohibits anyone other than poll workers, poll watchers and voters from actually being in the polling room on Election Day or during early voting.
