    Sorry but I think we have just witnessed a whole new level of voter fraud. Yes, the dems undoubtedly manufactured votes but did they also destroy valid ballots ? Feel free to pick my ideas apart, I hope you do so I can get this crap off my mind. Just please do it using the numbers not just your impressions. I don't know who else noticed this but when the early/absentee votes for OH showed up and the 1% precints was still showing Dick Morris tweeted not to worry as this was the early vote. However, I was very worried...
  • Fraud in PA: Obama got over 99% of vote at polls where GOP inspectors were removed

    Across Philadelphia, GOP poll inspectors were forcibly (and illegally) removed from polling locations. Coincidentally (or not), Mr. Obama received "astronomical" numbers in those very same regions, including locations where he received "over 99%" of the vote.

    Outraged over a teacher's alleged negative comments in class about President Obama has parents at Delcambre Elementary fighting back. The day after election day, Lindsey Shello's son told her his fourth grade teacher wore all black to school. He said the teacher told class she was attending America's funeral, because Barrack Obama was re-elected president. "She made the comment that since Michelle Obama is first lady and with the meal plan she has, the kids are gonna look like toothpicks in a few months," said Shello. Shello says the teacher also told the class, the US would become the new...

  • Why Hispanics Don’t Vote for Republicans [because they tend to favor big government]

    NRO ^ | Nov 7 2012 | Heather Mac Donald
    The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama’s victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican waiting to emerge in the Hispanic population. If Republicans want to change their stance on immigration, they should do so on the merits, not out of a belief that only immigration policy...
  • Approximately 4 Million MORE votes for Romney than McCain (Vanity)

    November 8, 2012 | Strategerist
    Based on CNN vote totals and estimated percentage of votes in by state (a number of states still have less than 90% votes counted), through spreadsheet analysis Romney will end up with approximately 64 million votes; McCain received approximately 60 million votes. Of course, we can't know how the uncounted votes will turn out; my assumption is that it matches the relative percentages of the votes already counted in each state. I'd be pretty surprised if it ended up less than 3 million more votes for Romney than McCain. Even adjusting McCain's total upward to reflect growth in the voting...

    The battle for the U.S. Senate between Tim Kaine and George Allen in Virginia may have been settled in the litter box instead of the ballot box if the tightly contested election had come down to about 6,000 votes given to a cat. It’s entirely possible that third-place finisher in Virginia is Hank the Cat, a Maine Coon who ran on a pro-feline, job-creation platform. In the current online results, Kaine is ahead of Allen by about 184,000 votes as of Thursday morning. The race was expected to be very close, and it was part of a record spending spree...

    We (all of us except the godless social democrats) hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Godless social democrats don't believe in the Creator, nor do they believe in unalienable rights, nor do they believe in Equality for all men, nor do they believe in Liberty, nor do they believe in Life. And they have no concept of what "pursuit of Happiness" even means. They believe government holds unlimited power over us and...
  • New York Times: GOP Dwindling Collection of 'Angry,' 'Grumpy Old White Men'

    11/08/2012 8:20:22 PM PST · by chessplayer · 38 replies
    The New York Times issued a triumphant editorial Thursday, "Republicans, Unplugged – A diverse America hear the right-wing appeal to fear and resentment and didn't buy it." We’ll leave the Republicans to their discussions in quiet rooms in the hope that at least a few are suggesting throwing out their old and failing playbook, seemingly written by and for a dwindling society of angry white men. ....But the Republicans don’t have a Hispanic problem. They have an America problem, a country that is growing more diverse and, on a wide range of issues, shows a sensible moderation and social tolerance...

    According to the Washington Post, the Ford Foundation has given the newspaper some $500,000 to hire four new staff – a lucrative $125,000 per job deal. The goal: to try “new approaches to preserve and advance high-quality journalism.” The four new positions will “work on special projects related to money, politics and government … The one-year-grant – with an agreement in principal for two additional years – is part of the Foundation’s Freedom of Expression program, an initiative aimed at promoting journalism in the public interest.” The Ford Foundation recently handed $1 million to the Los Angeles Times to cover...

    American spectator ^ | 11/17/11 | By Christopher Orlet
    Ever since I moved to the inner city one thing has puzzled me more than any other, and that is how my low-income neighbors get by. Assuming they aren't doing anything illegal, how do they afford their homes, their meals, their gadgets, their cars? Few seem to work, even part time, for they are home in the morning when I leave for work, home if I stop by for lunch, and home when I return in the evening. They can't work the graveyard shift, for they keep me up half the night with their raucous music. I am left to...

    It has been confirmed that Iranian jets opened fire on an unmanned U.S.drone last week raising fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression. A Predator drone operating off the coast of Kuwait, in international waters, was fired upon by two Su-25 Iranian fighter planes said George Little, the Pentagon press secretary. The incident occurred on November 1st at 4.15 a.m. eastern time and wasn't revealed publicly because the drone was on a classified mission.

    Mark Levin responds to calls from conservative commentators, like Charles Krauthammer, to grant amnesty to illegal immigration in order to entice Hispanics to vote Republican. Levin explains why this won't work and what a slippery slope amnesty would be. (Mark Levin Show, November 8, 2012) MARK LEVIN: You know, I've always known this, but I'm coming to the conclusion yet again that Republican leaders are really stupid people. And I'm coming to the conclusion that are an awful lot of stupid people posing as commentators on cable TV. I mean, where do these people come from? Now, this immigration issue....
  • Joy-Ann Reid Dismisses Black, Hispanic Republicans As Mere 'Window-Dressing'

    As if she half-expected conformity, the Grio's managing editor Joy-Ann Reid expressed doubt on MSNBC's Now with Alex Wagner that conservatives will ever be enlightened enough to move enough towards the center to win an election. Diversifying the messengers beyond white men and women simply isn't good enough to Reid, who condescendingly described Black and Hispanic Republicans as "window dressing" and "decoration": [video below, MP3 audio here ]

    Christie — a potential 2016 White House contender — said he worked harder than just about every other Republican to elect Romney, and that his recent praise of Obama had nothing to with Romney’s loss. “My activity with President Obama was just another chapter in the leadership I’ve tried to show in this state, which is people care more about getting things done than they care about partisanship,” he said Wednesday. “And I’m going to continue to conduct myself that way.”

    Deadly Ebola & Lassa Viruses May Be More Common Than Thought Wynne Parry, LiveScience Contributor Date: 08 November 2012 Time: 02:01 PM ETEbola and Lassa are hemorrhagic fevers, made memorable by the horrific symptoms that can accompany them. First identified about four decades ago, these killer viruses can cause their victims to bleed both internally and from the mucosal membranes of the eyes, nose and elsewhere. A severe infection can also produce neurological problems, including tremors and brain swelling. But mounting evidence indicates these terrifying diseases, which occur in Africa, may not be the terrifying new arrivals — called emerging...

    commentary magazine ^ | 11-8-12 | Jon Podhoretz
    As the national vote total began to solidify last night, one question on the minds of Republicans was: Where are the missing voters? Last night it looked like Mitt Romney had received something like 10 to 15 percent fewer votes than John McCain had in 2008, even though his percentage of the overall vote was at least two points higher. What did this mean? Where did the voters go? They didn’t go to Barack Obama, because exit polls suggested he had basically turned out the same demographic support he had four years ago. So where are they? Did this suggest...
