  • Funny business in Philly: GOP officials booted, Black Panthers return -- and Obama at polling site?

    11/06/2012 9:16:20 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 31 replies
    A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.  One Republican official claimed that "just under 70" Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, "was shoved out of the polling place."  Read more:

    THE world has watched the American Presidential election with mounting disbelief as tales of incompetence and skullduggery have emerged. None of these electoral misdeeds have surprised me - but I am puzzled that they have taken this long to be uncovered. I know they occur: I fixed an election myself. In 1976, I was a campaign worker for Jimmy Carter and during the Democratic primaries, I was sent to Pennsylvania for a day to help out in any way I could. The night before the election, I was told I would be a poll-watcher in a district in South Philadelphia....
  • Obama’s Black Panthers Are Back Intimidating Voters

    Racist thugs camped outside polling places is not voter intimidation… when they’re black racist thugs. Obama’s Atty General Eric Holder got these particular racist thugs off hoping for exactly this outcome. The New Black Panther Party would not be intimidating voters if the Justice Department had not aggressively intervened on their behalf. Had their prior voter intimidation acts led to serious consequences, we would not be seeing this now. This is voter intimidation arranged for by the Obama Administration with hardly enough plausible deniability to wrap a microdot in. And the Black Panthers aren’t just outside the polling places. They’re...

    UPDATE: Confirmed report of a fight in a poll at 10th & Chew. Ward 49, Div 7. Democrats were trying to forcibly remove GOP poll inspector. The Philadelphia GOP is reporting that court appointed Minority (read GOP) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards. Reports on the ground indicate the Black Panthers are at polling locations. These Inspectors are election officials – again, court appointed — and are reportedly being thrown out by the Head Judges of Elections (these Judges are elected Democrats) . This has happened at the following locations: Ward 32, Div 13 Ward...
  • On eve of election, judge rules Democrat ineligible to run for Assembly District 9

    On the eve before the election, a Clark County judge ruled an Assembly candidate is ineligible for office because he did not live in the district he is running in, according to media reports. The ruling, with ballots already printed and voting machines programmed, not to mention a large portion of the district already having voted, tosses into turmoil the seat, which has a Democratic voter registration edge. Andrew Martin is a Democrat and former member of the state’s Economic Forum, which projects the state's tax revenue for two years.

    According to FOX and ABC, Barry Obama will watch election returns at the Obama Mansion tonight, before the caravan hauls him some 13 minutes up Lake Shore Drive to Chicago's convention center, the mobbed up McCormick Place on the lake. (Alleged mobster Rudy "the Chin" Fratto of the prestigious Elmwood Park Street Crew recently pled guilty to rigging forklift contracts at McCormick Place. He's the latest example of an Italian American whose enterprise at least does some actual work... don't get me started.) Barry's friend Tony Rezko will presumably view some of the exit polls from the day room at...

    An admitted Russian mobster is the star witness in the feds’ ‘Bar Girl,’ trial, describing how young women bamboozled drunk men in South Beach. * * * The women would target male tourists showing tell-tale signs of wealth, such as expensive watches or shoes. (They referred to cheap customers as “condoms.”) If they had a hot prospect, they would text message bartenders back at their clubs to get the place ready.

    The Benghazi bleed is draining Obama and Democrats, with the consequence yet to be seen. If he loses, it will be one reason why; if he wins, he will run into a headwind of investigations and inquiries that will get his second term off to an ugly beginning. Either way, it has put an end for the time being at least to the Democrats' latest effort to dig themselves out of the foreign policy hole they dug themselves into in the late l960s, and from which they have yet to emerge. They tried with Jimmy Carter, ex-career naval officer (and...

    Wasserman Schultz: Republicans tried to ‘rig’ the electionBy John Rossomando /// November 4, 2012 Republicans tried to “rig” the outcome of the election by limiting early voting opportunities and by limiting who shows up at the polls, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said this morning during an appearance on C-Span. “We have run circles around them because of our very strong and effective ground game,” Wasserman Schultz said regarding early voter turnout. “Just yesterday, we had major records in terms of Democrats going in to vote in counties around the state of Florida. “The same is...

    N.J. fears new storm; Philly could see snowBy Anthony R. Wood, INQUIRER STAFF WRITER November 05, 2012 Unless the computer models are clueless or decide to have a radical change of heart, the Jersey Shore almost certainly is going to get exactly what it doesn't need this week: Another siege of powerful, sand-removing onshore winds, perhaps up to 65 m.p.h. That a potent, winterlike storm - perhaps strong enough to generate snows as far south and east as Philadelphia - will approach the region on Wednesday is looking more and more likely. Although storm surges and wave heights would not...

    Russian attack sub discovered just 200 miles from the East Coast and given safe harbor from Hurricane SandyBy Daily Mail Reporter UPDATED: 00:15 EST, 6 November 2012 U.S. defense officials are downplaying the potential threat of a Russian attack sub detected just 200 miles from the East Coast and given safe harbor in Florida during Hurricane Sandy. The Russian Seirra-2 class submarine was believed to be part of the country's Northern Fleet, outfitted with SS-N-21 anti-submarine warfare missiles, SS-N-16 anti-submarine warfare missiles, and torpedos. **SNIP** Officials said the submarine was likely conducting anti-submarine warfare efforts against U.S. ballistic and cruise...

It definitely needs a bettter script and narrator than me. This video answers many questions on what happened to Ambassador Stevens from the time he was abandoned by his State Department employees at 11:20 PM and the time he was taken out of the Main Building of the American Consulate in Benghazi Libya. It also raises many new and disturbing questions as well. The worldwide news media has overwhelmingly pronounced the retrieval and...

    Unions in Greece began a 48-hour walk-out on Tuesday in protest against the latest raft of anti-austerity measures, due to be put before the country's parliament on Wednesday. Greece’s unions are holding their third general strike in six weeks in the hope of persuading politicians not to back a major new austerity program that will commit the country to further hardship. Flights will stop between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. (0800-1100GMT) Tuesday, at the start of a 48-hour strike that will close schools, halt train and ferry services, and keep hospitals running on emergency staff only. Two days of demonstrations...

    Cruising around Beijing in a silver Jaguar with "007" in the license plate, Neil Heywood seemed to relish the air of intrigue that surrounded him. In meetings, the British consultant hinted about his connections to Bo Xilai—the onetime Communist Party highflier—but often he would refuse to hand over a business card. He spoke Mandarin, smoked heavily and worked part time for a dealer of Aston Martin cars, the British brand driven by James Bond. Some thought him a fantasist, others a fraud.

    Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory - for Victoria's Secret show The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform. Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show. About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit. But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event,...
