  • The Real Reason for the Left’s All-Out Assault on Jeff Sessions

    Daily Signal ^ | January 11, 2017 | J. Christian Adams
    Observers of this week’s confirmation hearings for the post of U.S. attorney general might think it odd to see Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., rewind the clock to a single voter fraud case from the 1980s. Under persistent questioning, Sessions has had to defend his decision to prosecute a case of brazen voter fraud—something that was his job to do. The repeated references to this case by some senators represent just how far the civil rights industry has swerved from its honorable roots to derail a confirmation. Character assassination, false testimony, performance protests aimed at securing retweets instead of reconciliation, and...

    Formal protests are now being filed in 11 additional counties to challenge potentially fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats, according to Governor Pat McCrory's campaign.A formal protest was filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred absentee ballots, alleged to be fraudulent on Tuesday. The initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a "massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC," a political-action committee funded by the N.C. Democrat Party and other prominent statewide Democrats.  In addition to...

    This piece was originally posted on November 20, 2013 on the Freedom Outpost website. If this expose of voter fraud was presented as a stage play, it would be characterized as a Greek Tragedy; "a drama or literary work in which the main character is brought to ruin as a consequence of a tragic flaw, moral weakness, or inability to cope with unfavorable circumstances." Such is where we find ourselves. The main character(s) would be all those who fought and died to provide for us a form of government whose very foundation is the right to free and unencumbered elections....

    American Thinker ^ | May 26, 2016 | Sierra Rayne
    As the days go by, the results of the Austrian presidential election get more suspicious. According to the official results, the far-left candidate Alexander Van der Bellen defeated Norbert Hofer from the Freedom Party of Austria by just 31,000 votes, 50.35% to 49.65%. The lights were already blinking red on the day the results were being released. Writing for Breitbart soon thereafter, James Delingpole didn't mince words and called the election a sham: We were continually assured by the left-liberal media how awful it would be if the (supposed) "far-right" candidate Norbert Hofer won. But actually the victory of Green...

    With vote counting in Missouri completed for Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump lead their respective party primaries there by less than half a percentage point. Since the margin of victory in each case is less than 1 percentage point, CNN will not project a winner in either contest. Stephanie Fleming, a spokeswoman for the Missouri secretary of state's office, told CNN that 100% of precincts have reported, but some absentee and provisional ballots remain uncounted. These ballots will be counted in the coming days. Overseas absentee ballots will be accepted until Friday at noon. The secretary of state's...

    The first phantom absentee ballot request hit the Miami-Dade elections website at 9:11 p.m. Saturday, July 7. The next one came at 9:14. Then 9:17. 9:22. 9:24. 9:25. Within 2½ weeks, 2,552 online requests arrived from voters who had not applied for absentee ballots. They streamed in much too quickly for real people to be filling them out. They originated from only a handful of Internet Protocol addresses. And they were not random. It had all the appearances of a political dirty trick, a high-tech effort by an unknown hacker to sway three key Aug. 14 primary elections, a Miami...

    During the spring of 2011, the Justice Department was reviewing the Brooks County case and hadn't forwarded a response in regard to whether the federal government wanted to go forward. If President Obama is re-elected and Eric Holder remains as the Attorney General, there is a stronger likelihood that a sturdier response along with more questions will be forwarded to J. David Miller, Jo Ann Collins (the former elections supervisor/Probatre judge) assistant DA Brad Shealy about their own involvement.

    California's Uncounted Mail-In Ballots Reach Thousands November 13, 2012 SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- There are plenty of vote-by-mail ballots in California that won't count in the final November tally, largely because of postmarks and signatures. There's a group out to change some of those ballot rules, hoping to boost voter turnout. Thousands of vote-by-mail ballots throughout California are sitting in county registrar offices right now and will never be counted. Some signatures on ballot envelopes don't match the one on the voter registration card. Other ballots are from previous elections. But the most common reason a ballot doesn't get counted: it...

    Thousands of Ohio voters are voting by absentee ballot this year so they don't have to stand in line at the polls on Election Day. Ohio Boards of Elections expect at least 25 percent of all votes to come in this way. But the U.S. Postal Service says many absentee voters are not putting enough postage on the envelope, putting their vote at risk. Requires More Postage This Year Because of the size of the 2012 mailer,the Hamilton County Board of Elections in Ohio say you should put 65 cents worth of postage on most absentee ballots, about 20 cents...
  • OH Absentee Update: Stunning numbers

    Ok, I finally got around to comparing the total shortfall by both Ds and Rs from 2008 to 2012 in those counties reporting 2008 data. (Most which haven't are not big pop, key counties, so their inclusion probably wouldn't change the ratios much). First, total absentee requests in OH fell from 2008. Second, two counties, Montgomery (mine) and Cuyahoga, actually GAINED R absentees over 08. Third, the data is as of close of business yesterday. Total D dropoff from 2008: 224,550 Total R dropoff: 49,270 Total NET D dropoff: 175,280 Obama won OH by 250,000 votes.

    From a memo by RNC political director Rick Wiley: In at least four key swing states in 2008, Obama won handily among early voters, allowing him to win those state without winning the actual Election Day vote. He will not have the same early vote lead this year because our Absentee Balloting operation is producing promising results. In Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, and Nevada Republicans have requested more absentee ballots than Democrats. While we run programs in every battleground state, not all states track ballots by voter identification, so we can only measure our progress in certain ones.As of...
