    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 6 Oct 2012 | John Semmens
    Reports that a majority of the nation’s overseas soldiers and sailors won’t be able to cast votes in this election because the Department of Defense hasn’t made the effort to implement an effective absentee ballot process were brushed off by DOD brass. Secretary Leon Panetta said he “regrets that some of our valiant warriors will be disenfranchised,” but attributed the problem to “the need to set priorities.” “Among the lengthy enumeration of ‘things to do’ that are on my plate, ensuring that the troops get to vote is pretty far down the list,” Panetta said. “I have to meet with...

    Washington, D.C. (API) - In the event that President Barack Obama is not reelected on November 6th, one million slackers will march on Washington, D.C., according to Slackers for Obama founder Brian Ross (not to be confused with the ABC newsman of the same name).Slackers for Obama is a nationwide group of un- and underemployed men and women committed to the policies of the President. Among other things, their manifesto calls for free entertainment, the abolition of private property rights and the retroactive abortion of political opponents in an effort to create a more fair and just society.

Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now...

    On a visit to pick up California votes and cash, President Obama said in San Francisco on Monday night that "I very much intend to win this election" and implored supporters to redouble their efforts because "we're only going to do it if everybody is almost obsessive for the next 29 days." .....Obama turned to his fiercest supporters on the day when the first major national poll since his presidential debate with GOP nominee Mitt Romney appeared. A national survey of likely voters by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center found Romney leading Obama 49 to 45 percent....It was the first...

There could NOT be any more stark difference in choices this election. Many have voice their choice in the polls…47% to 47% (+/- 2). So that leads me to a very interesting question. Who are these 4-6 percent called “The Undecided”? Better yet, what make up of mindset does one have to actually have to NOT be able to form a choice? How many Liberal, Pro-Life, Big Government, Huge Military, Pro-Business, Keynesian Economic Republicans can...

    PJ Tatler ^ | October 8, 2012 | Bryan Preston
    The Government Accountability Institute released a blockbuster study today on the issue of foreign donations in American politics, and in particular, the Obama campaign. The study determined three key findings: The absence of the industry-standard CVV and unknown use of AVS anti-fraud security for online credit card donations. The presence of a branded, major third-party owned website (Obama.com) redirects its 68% foreign traffic to a campaign donation page. Active foreign solicition using indiscriminate email solicitations and exposure to social media. The branded site, Obama.com, was created in Shanghai, China, by an Obama bundler, but its present registration information is hidden....

    Suburbanites of Ohio, listen up. As swing voters in the ultimate swing state, you will have an outsized impact on this election. President Obama has pledged to govern in the interests of middle-class voters like you. With so much resting on your shoulders, that is a promise you should scrutinize with care.

President Obama aims to help Ohio’s Democrats bail out your state’s struggling cities by forcibly transferring suburban tax money to urban treasuries. It’s a bold plan to redistribute the wealth of Ohio’s suburbs. It...

    Washington Times ^ | 08 Oct 2012 | McGlaughlin and Crabtree
    President Obama’s re-election campaign on Monday launched a pre-emptive strike ahead of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s planned foreign policy address, arguing that Mr. Romney has failed the the commander-in-chief test on the global stage — in part by staking out positions to the right of former President George W. Bush. The Obama camp released a new television advertisement and issued a memo on Monday criticizing Mr. Romney’s bumpy overseas trip this summer as well as his response to the assaults on the U.S. diplomatic post in Libya — highlighting how a national security adviser to GOP Sen. John McCain’s...

    Our Lady also warned that if Russia was not consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart as She requested, Russia would spread its errors throughout the world. Unfortunately, we are still awaiting the proper consecration of Russia, and we are witnessing the dissemination of Russia’s manifold errors, which Our Lady warned would cause "wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated." Of these prophecies, all have come to pass, at least in part, and they continue to afflict us, except the annihilation of nations, which may...

    Hey Something really cool happened last week, and I had to share with you. You probably know that one of our top priorities this year is registering as many new voters as possible. This past Thursday, supporters down in Florida really stepped up, registering over 10,000 voters. In a single day. I'm not sure if that's a record, but it's definitely amazing. Florida is just one example -- and it wouldn't have been possible without folks from neighboring states pitching in to help. Every day, supporters are getting involved in this campaign -- whether it's registering voters, making calls, knocking...

    With American elections only weeks away, relations between Israel and the United States have become a key issue in the campaign. President Obama cannot hide how strained the relations really are between him and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama’s dislike of Netanyahu is as clear as his love for the Muslim call to prayer, as he noted in his 2009 Cairo speech, when he called it the "sweetest sound on earth." At a time when the Middle East is entering a storm of violence and turmoil, President Obama rejected the request to meet with the leader of the only...
