Skip to comments.(Exempt) Obama at (snitch) Sharpton Event: Voter ID Supporters Are 'the Real Frauds'
Posted on 04/12/2014 4:12:24 PM PDT by Libloather
Speaking at Al Sharpton's National Action Network convention on Friday in New York City, President Barack Obama revealed that he believes voter fraud does not exist, everyone who wants to should be able to vote, even if they cannot provide identifying documentation, and Republicans are plotting to take the franchise away from minorities.
Obama, who hails from a city known for the Daley Machine and its "vote early and vote often" slogan, ripped Republicans for trying to preserve the integrity of the ballot by reducing voter fraud and requiring voter IDs.
He made the accusation that there is a "well-organized effort" to undo gains the Civil Rights Movement has made in the last 50 years, and he said voting rights are "under particular assault."

She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship.
President Obama nevertheless insists on looking the other way when voter fraud lies all about him. Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser in Houston last week, Mr. Obama criticized active efforts to deter people from voting.
Who cares what that stool pigeon has to say.
Hey Kenyan boy! This is America not Kenya. KMA!!! We allow only one vote per person here sonny.
My answer from now on is - anyone against voter ID wants the right to cheat.
It could hardly be more obvious what Obama is.

The man is a fool.
The GOP doesn't have the stones to disenfranchise the parasite class.
Obama is losing it politically, the optics of him standing on stage with a loud mouth race hustling drug dealer does nothing for him or his party.
It does however seriously damage the Democrat brand amongst its White base, and compounds the damage already inflicted by Obamacare.
In fact , he is inciting racial conflict.
Now why would he want to do that?
clintonh8r to Slobama: You don’t want to go there....BUDDY.
And if a liar says it you *KNOW* it must be true!
[Voting problem analyses and solutions]
This is the admission.
I just don’t know what the problem is. We already get Voter ID cards, why not just have them add a picture to them and be done. This is so stupid. The solution is so simple.
For libs like Obama, requiring an ID is bad because then their illegal alien buddies can’t vote Dem, repeatedly..that is why the left is so against voter ID, it takes away their ability to commit fraud which is how they win elections
The problem is not America's poor, who seem to be able to provide an ID for everything else except voting. The problem is the foreigner who wants to vote.
There was a story in the news during the Reagan years that said that an international poll showed that people in other countries felt that the American President was too important a position to be left to Americans alone to vote.
That's what this is all about. Letting foreigners vote in American elections.
I just don’t understand why the Republicans in Congress aren’t shouting from the rooftops this is about preserving the sanctity and integrity of the vote. They should be beating this bastard back at every chance. Instead, they are silent and spineless, as usual.
Unfortunately, much of the problem is people crossing state lines to vote next door. Purging voter rolls doesn’t fix that problem. The only solution is indelible purple ink on the finger — but that would require us going back to EVERYBODY voting on election day, the way it was for several centuries in the Colonies and then the US. I also believe election fraud has zoomed since we started letting people use early voting, mail-in ballots, motor-voter registration, registration with your Obamacare registration, etc. Everything done to make it “easier” to vote enables more fraud. All of this is aimed at the LIVs who all vote Demo to keep their free gravy train running.
I’d be ashamed to admit I didn’t have a photo ID in this day and age.
we’ve gone from George Washington to hip hop gang banger real deal pot smoker Barack Hussein. This is just a nightmare. We have a pimp for a President. What shape we’re in.
They must really do a lot of fraud, since efforts to clean up the vote terrify them so.
In the end days, good will be considered evil, and evil will be considered good.

Largest radical group in America, with more than 400,000 dues-paying member families and more than 1,200 chapters in 110 U.S. cities, was implicated in numerous reports of fraudulent voter registration, vote-rigging, voter intimidation, and vote-for-pay scams during recent election cycles.
Pressured banks to lend money to under qualified minority borrowers.
Maintains close ties to organized labor
Calls for more government control over citizens and the economy.
Favors a government monopoly in healthcare
Advocates an open-door immigration policy.
As this profile will demonstrate, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was a leading player in the push, throughout the 1990s, to force banks to increase by any means necessary the number of mortgage loans that they made to undercapitalized racial minorities. As such, ACORN played a major role in sowing the seeds for the housing bust and the current economic crisis. But in its literature, ACORN does not draw this connection. Instead it depicts itself as a champion of the poor, while directing all blame to so-called predatory lenders. Says ACORN:
Predatory lending has ignited a wildfire of foreclosures across the United States. Foreclosures dont just hurt individuals and families, they hurt entire neighborhoods and communities, leaving homes abandoned and vulnerable to vagrancy and crime. No other organization has fought harder to increase access to credit for low-income and minority families than ACORN, but predatory lending is threatening to reverse the progress we have made.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a grassroots political organization that grew out of George Wileys National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), whose members in the late 1960s and early 1970s invaded welfare offices across the U.S. often violently bullying social workers and loudly demanding every penny to which the law entitled them. In the late Sixties, ACORN co-founder Wade Rathke was an NWRO organizer and a protegé of Wiley. Rathke also organized a draft-resistance campaign for the militant group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) during the same period.
In 1970 Rathke along with the aforementioned Wiley (who was best known for his effective use of the so-called Cloward-Piven strategy) and Gary Delgado (a lead organizer for Wileys NWRO) formed a new entity called Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).
The groups name was later changed to Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, but the acronym ACORN remained. Instead of focusing only on welfare recipients, ACORNs mandate now included all issues touching low-income and working-class people. Foundation Watch editor Matthew Vadum explains specifically what ACORN
has done ever since its inception:
ACORN ... organizes crude protests against businesspeople and public officials. Opposed to the profit motive and capitalism in general, it pushes for more government control over citizens and the economy. ACORN supports gun control, a government monopoly in healthcare and an open door immigration policy. It supports a big raise in the federal minimum wage and so-called living-wage laws enacted by states and cities. ACORN wants more funding for urban public schools, and wants federal and state laws enacted guaranteeing paid sick leave for all full-time workers. The group claims to fight for affordable housing and it rails against foreclosures and so-called predatory lending, even though it demands that banks make loans [to underqualified borrowers] destined to default.
Manhattan Institute scholar Sol Stern writes that ACORN, professing its dedication to the poor and powerless, in fact promotes a 1960s-bred agenda of anti-capitalism, central planning, victimology, and government handouts to the poor. ACORN, Stern elaborates, organizes people to push for ever more government control of the economy and to pursue the ultra-Lefts familiar anti-capitalist redistributionism. This agenda is made plain in ACORNs own Peoples Platform, which says: We are the majority, forged from all the minorities. We will continue our fight until we have shared the wealth
In the early Seventies, Wade Rathke and his ACORN co-founders enlisted civil-rights workers and trained them in a program (at Syracuse University) patterned after Saul Alinskys activist tactics. Often those tactics were subtle, featuring the quiet infiltration of political, educational, and financial infrastructures by ACORN members. In other cases, the methods were brazenly confrontational. As Carl Horowitz of the National Legal and Policy Center notes:
In July 1997 roughly 200 ACORN protestors stormed a session of the Chicago City Council (which was discussing living wage issues at that time), pushing over the metal detector and table used to screen visitors, backing police against doors, and blocking entrance to the room by late-arriving alderman and staff; six persons were arrested in the fracas.
On another occasion, ACORN dispatched four busloads of protesters to the site of Baltimore mayor Martin OMalleys home, where they screamed profanities at the mayor and his family. Additional ACORN members, meanwhile, piled mounds of garbage in front of Baltimores City Hall to protest the alleged paucity of services in the areas poor neighborhoods. Were up in their face, an ACORN representative said proudly.
In 1995 ACORN protested what it characterized as the Republican-led Congress proposed spending cuts on welfare programs. (In actuality, no cuts were being proposed; the Republicans were calling for an increase in welfare spending, but it was a smaller increase than ACORN wanted.) The New York Post describes the scene of this ACORN demonstration:
House Speaker Newt Gingrich was scheduled to address a meeting of county commissioners at the Washington Hilton. But, first, some 500 protesters from [ACORN] poured into the ballroom from both the kitchen and the main entrance. Hotel staffers who tried to block them were quickly overwhelmed by demonstrators chanting, Nuke Newt! and We want Newt! Jamming the aisles, carrying bullhorns and taunting the assembled county commissioners, demonstrators swiftly took over the head table and commandeered the microphone, sending two members of Congress scurrying. The demonstrators target, Gingrich, hadnt yet arrived and his speech was cancelled. When the cancellation was announced, ACORNs foot soldiers cheered.
THE REST OFN THE HISTORY
So, according to Obama, obtaining a photo ID is extremely difficult but signing up for Obamacare is a snap?
We have a person in the presidency who won’t identify himself saying we shouldn’t ID voters. At least he’s consistent.
It’s a commie and a con-man together. Hard to tell who is who.
I don’t know why it is, but I am way past the drinking age, and I still get asked for ID when I buy a six-pack of beer.
This is all Alinsky tactics to demonize the conservatives who are uncovering Democrat voter fraud.
Well said. What would have been the outcome of the last several elections if there no voter/election fraud & all the service member’s votes were properly counted? I wonder if anyone has ever computed this?
