Anything from the left, be it our domestic left, or imported left, is corrupt.

Yup, and guess what China and Russia are a ruse. We are dealing with manchurian presidents selected by Narco org. with revenues the size of the GDP of some nations. Those Narco org. Include “Islamic Revolutionary” organizations, they are also in bed with George Soros’. He had a bank in Colombia known for laundering money. Those are/”were” his private investor in his hedge funds.

Did you ever wonder why heroin use and deaths suddenly went through the roof? And this drug legalization? Just what American kids needed, more accessible dope. Right?

Guess who else is doing their laundry? Wall Street. JP Morgan was doing it openly and overtly in Caracas.

“Guess which machines were used in 2012? VENEZUELA’S!!! “

I have heard this, but can someone please provide confirmation of this?

Further, how could the GOP allow this?

Further still, given that the founders felt it was necessary to have three independent branches of government - to guard against tyranny, doesn’t it make sense that there should be multiple levels of verification of voting - including the involvement of multiple electronic voting companies that can keep an eye on each other?

They allow it because they are cowards, compromised, or corrupt.

Is it any wonder why the good friend of Hugo Chavez won in the US election of November, 2012, when everybody thought it would swing the other way?

Remember the huge crowds for Romney and the dinky small roomfuls of supporters for Dear Leader? Remember the polls which showed a Romney surge? Remember the huge crowds of Romney supporters flocking to the polls all over the country, by all accounts? Remember the constant reports of "mis-tallyed" votes (all in one direction, of course) from various polling places (I certainly remember the ones in my state)? Remember the blowout shock as the astonishing results come in from the Battleground states, where everything broke "unexpectedly" in one direction all night- except the bare squeaker for Romney in NC when they thought he would certainly run away with it there? And remember Karl Rove's flabbergasted face when he got the unbelievable surprises that the GOP districts in Ohio went unexpectedly heavily for Dear Leader?

Remember all that?

Then remember the electronic voting machines ("un-tamperable" they insisted), and then remember just who it was who tallied the votes...?

Remember?

I remember everyone, including Obama supporters, being very quiet and subdued the day after the election. Even O’s fans expected Romney to win.

All these battleground states had R govs and R sec of state.
If this fraud is truly happening, patriots in those states need to be beating the impeachment drums for those officials.

Yes, it was all very strange after election day. Something was very wrong. It is the day America was lost. The reality now is that the media is sold out like a cheap hooker, and the US regime has Billions a months funelled into banks and their labyrith of off shore accounts. With those amounts of money, they can do whatever they want. Except the economy won’t sustain the corruption, at some point China and the market in general will collapse.

We are in the same situation as Venezuela, except the facade of freedom remains. PRAY, Pray, pray, for our country, our youth, and our enemies. That is what saved Venezuela, the Ukraine, and will save us.

Evil will always look to enslave people. Evil hates, divides, and deceives. Spread the truth, love, and embrace those who are under deception.

Maduro in Venezuela will be thrown under the bus, but Venezuela will never be free, becuase they will not risk anything to be exposed.

Pray friends.

Chavez was a known drug dealers. Here Britain mentions how he supplies at least 50% of the cocaine going into their country.

Smartmatic then bought the much larger and more established Sequoia Voting Systems, which now has voting equipment installed in 17 states and the District of Columbia


What states would they be? Swing states?

I can’t believe the New York Times is reporting this. I don’t trust them. Why would they tell on their favorite commie? I don’t doubt the leftist cheated with the help of chavis, but there is a piece missing. Leftist lie, cheat and steal for each other.

Today I was changing channels and I heard cnn asking why rice lied about bengazi. I almost fell over.

In 2006, Bush was president. It seems they started paving the way for Obama already.

The New York Times is certianly a spin machine, but they do print news. This was reported in Miami as well. At the time it wouldn’t have benn so alarming to us.

Chavez was always presented as being “democratically elected” most Venezuelans knew better, and with Maduro there was no doubt. Carter went to certify elections in Venezuela and we got the UN. They were prepared for everything.

Since then Soros alone has “donated” over $52 million to media outlets. It is plain to see which of them perform like cheap hookers.

Thanks! I had hope for a few minutes there that maybe an extreme leftist was doing there job. They were only trying to hurt Bush. I still have the fact that CNN actually asked why Rice lied. I had to leave, so it could have been helping her make excuses.

Haha, I know every once in a while they act like real journalists and my head starts spinning due to the lapse of predictability. They are committing mass gas lighting abuse on a global population.

We know who is really in charge, and we have to keep our eyes on Him. Otherwise we’ll get lost in Orwellandia.
