Editors Note: This article is based on The Machine, a documentary on that aired on TheBlaze TV Nov. 1 as the first of an occasional news magazine series called For The Record. An encore broadcast is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 8 at 8pm ET.
President Barack Obamas campaign team could have more control over the outcome of the 2012 election than you think, according to a report by TheBlaze documentary team that reveals the potential for highly targeted voter fraud in key cities that could determine who gets the electoral votes from many swing states.
The potential fraud would be focused on major, decisive cities that are believed to help keep states blue, and therefore earning them the electoral colleges votes. Theyre called spigot cities.
Voters cast their ballots at St. Martins de Porres high school,Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008, in Cleveland.
J. Christian Adams, an author and former attorney for the Department of Justices Civil Rights Division, spoke about the spigot cities on the BlazeTV documentary The Machine which delves into various forms of voter fraud and how its being perpetuated. Many believe it is ultimately resulting in a loss of freedom through a corrupt voting system.
Adams believes spigot cities are managed by the Obama campaigned with some involvement by the Voting Section of the Justice Department.
Without the spigot being opened in Philly, without the spigot being opened in Saint Louis, without the spigot being opened in Detroit and Fort Lauderdale and and and places around the country like that, Milwaukee Cleveland, Cincinnati, those states would not go blue, Adams said on The Machine. It requires massive turnout in large unopposed numbers in those urban centers for those states to remain in in the blue column. What you have, unfortunately, is pervasive systemic voter fraud in many of those places. Ive seen it with my own eyes.

Calling upon the 2008 election, Adams pointed out that Republican Sen. John McCains campaign had a policy to not call the Justice Departments voting section. The campaign for then-Senator Barack Obama, on the other hand, is believed to have made frequent calls to the department requesting these cities have an adequate number of voting machines in case a precinct received a large amount of voters at one time.
So you had one side using the DOJ as a potential lever to help them gain power, and you had the other side fleeing from the battlefield, Adams said.
Flooding the polls would be a necessary factor to create a spigot city. In the documentary, Adams discussed how voter manipulation would be employed for these record poll turnouts, which he says are generally reported in a positive light by the media.
You have election officials telling voters for whom to vote, Adams claims. You have forced assistants. You have bus loads of people who are losing their right to vote as theyre marched into the polling place and have somebody else mark their ballot for them.
John Fund, author and writer for National Review, said in the documentary that people will do it for the 20 bucks that are handed at a homeless shelter, and theyre told to get on a bus and go from polling place to polling place, casting votes.

TheBlaze recently reported about a DNC staffer who was fired for allegedly helping a person cast their vote twice. Some have expressed worry that electronic voting machines with calibration issues could be robbing citizens of their votes too.
A general aversion to voter identification requirements and support for same-day voting registration is believed to contribute to this practice of flooding polls as well.
Same day voting is an engraved invitation to voter fraud, said Fund, who wrote the book Whos Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk. Because lets say its Minnesota, anybody can show up at the polls, register to vote, and then immediately vote. They dont have to show ID. Somebody has to vouch for them. So anybody can come in whos a Minnesota resident and say, Well, I vouch for this person. I know Joe.
With same day voter registration, as Adams pointed out, checking voter eligibility is virtually non-existent.
The requirement of a voter ID has been making the rounds in the news during this entire election cycle. Those against imposing a requirement, calling it unconstitutional, argue that it would disenfranchise minority voters who have a hard time obtaining identification. At the same time though, TheBlaze reported a Washington Post poll that found near 75 percent of Americans believe the requirement of a voter ID is reasonable.
Although some might deny the existence of voter fraud, fail to see issues with same-day voter registration and at the same time balk at the idea of an ID requirement, there are real consequences of corruption if it occurs.
One example included recently on TheBlaze has Fund discussing how he believes Sen. Al Franken was elected in Minnesota under fraudulent conditions and, if thats the case, points out that Franken was the deciding vote that passed Obamacare. Some of the controversy surrounding the election between Franken and incumbent Norm Coleman for Minnesota in 2008 which was won by Franken by only 312 votes after months of litigation following an initial 725-vote lead by Coleman is that a conservative group Minnesota Majority found evidence of voter fraud, which included voting conducted by ineligible convicted felons.
Watch Fund talk voter fraud with Mallory Factor earlier this month:
So what can be expected of spigot cities and alleged voter fraud with the 2012 Presidential Election?
Well, the problem is voter fraud is cyclical, Fund said. If the election isnt close, then people care about less voter fraud. If its perceived as very close, theres an enormous temptation to put your thumb on the scale of democracy. I think this election is gonna be very close.
You can watch an encore broadcast of the documentary Sunday, Nov. 4 at 8pm ET on TheBlaze TV or on Dish channel 212.
How is the “white guilt” vote working for Barry this year. Larger or smaller than 2008? I haven’t seen any polls on that yet.
Just let them steal this election:
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
This is exactly why the Founders did not establish the USA as a democracy but as a republic. We are now at the point where the government dependents out number the taxpayers. That cannot continue.
Thanks for the reminder. That’s a great post.
I revived your thread.
North St. Louis city routinely turns in more ballots than registered voters.
This is disgusting. Those people vote on race and for so-called “freebies.”
However, I think Romney will win in spite of the fraud - but MANY places don't have enough GOP volunteers to assist in stopping fraud.
Every year for many years I was an 'observer' at the election center in Los Angeles - where the ballots are counted. I caught quite a few fraudulent actions taking place, and stopped them.
You too can easily do the same job in your state, city - call the local GOP and volunteer... they will show you the ropes. It only takes a little bit of your time.
This program shows you what you always suspected might be happening and it's even worse.
It's probably the kind of stuff we used to liberate countries from, only this time "our" cavalry is ignoring us, our lazing the targets and calling for help.
We're going to have to rescue ourselves.
Even if we win, we need to get on this problem now and not wait until just before elections. I think it was Ohio that some lib judge ruled that some rules can’t go into effect until after the election? If we don’t win, what can we do against the lib judges, the DOD, and the UN?
Other than the term spigot cities,” this is not news.
God smite those who try to steal this election.
No I think Rove and Kasich understand the fraud problem quite well, even if they won’t speak up on it.
There are limits on how much fraud can be used to steal an election.
Filthadelfia is probably the worst one of them all.
It routinely holds PA back. But two years ago it wasn’t enough to stop the state from electing a GOP governor and US Senator.
If it is razor thin then you can just count on them stealing it.
In this case I truly think Ohio and Wisconsin would be slam dunks absent the fraud. With the fraud I think we win Ohio by 3 and Wisconsin by two.
At the end of the day something has to be done about it though.
Will anyone ever have the balls to take it on?
When America goes to bed Monday after all the “pundits” and polls call it for Romney, when America hears how Romney is winning in the exit polls... what will they do in the wee hours of Wednesday when they realize the Fraud and 4 years of putting massive voter fraud in place has resulted in stealing the election ???
NOT A DAMN THING.
Thursday Night Football will be all most of America will be thinking about.
Watch for this crap in NC. Mooshelle is in town and Obama vs Romney ads are about 50-50. The “un-calibrated” crap is beyond nuts. Obama has NOT given up on North Carolina.
That was TN and the library cards. Phhhtt
mmNot sure what Phhhsst means but thanks for the the info
Directed at the Judge not you Rusty.... LOL
So far, we’ve seen quite a number of legal, SoS challenges, etc here. They ain’t getting away with anything.
This and outright fraud is why I think Obama has this thing locked. And the DOJ along with the State Media arm will do nothing about it. Not a thing. How I wish I was wrong.
Claims increase of machines switching votes in Ohio, other battlegrounds
By Eric Shawn
Published November 02, 2012
Imagine going to vote for your presidential candidate and pushing the button on a touch-screen voting machine — but the “X” marks his opponent instead.
That is what some voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio have reported.
Fox News has received several complaints from voters who say they voted on touch-screen voting machines — only when they tried to select Mitt Romney, the machine indicated they had chosen President Obama. The voters in question realized the error and were able to cast ballots for their actual choice.
