    This is in the category of know what the enemy is doing. It comes with a very high BARF ALERT! Thousands of petitions - some of them: Electoral College: Make Hillary Clinton President. Prosecute Trump for illegal offenses before the Dec. 19 Electoral College Vote. Impeach Donald J. Trump
  • Calls For Electoral College To Ignore Will Of People (and elect Hillary Clinton)

    Freedom Outpost ^ | November 11, 2016 | Mac Slavo
    UPDATE: As of 6:30PM Central Time the Associated Press is reporting that Trump has won Arizona. This would make it impossible for Hillary Clinton to qualify for the Presidency with pledged Electoral College votes, as Donald Trump has exceeded the 270 votes needed to win. Note: The Arizona results have not yet been certified. As AP analyst Michael McDonald notes, “just because the media calls something does not mean that that’s actually the outcome of the election.” Note: Elements of the Democrat Party have not given up. There is a concerted effort, as reported below, to convince Republican-pledged Electoral College...
  • Silly British MPs Set to Debate Trumped Up, Make-Believe Donald Trump Petition

    Meanwhile, is it only British MPs who would carry on with a debate over a full-blown Tempest in a Teapot? Things are so jolly for the masses in England that their MPs are taking time to debate a government-sponsored petition calling for American presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be excluded from the UK. MPs will discuss the call for the Tempest-in-Teapot Trump ban in the usually more august Westminster Hall come January 18. British politicians whose sensibilities have been highly offended all because Trump noted ‘Britain’s Muslim problems’, are somewhat akin to the sheriffs in old Western movies, who ordered...

    Warning - A petition worker came by yesterday to ask for our signatures and knew everyone's name in the household. We declined to sign. Later, Mr. b overheard one of the workers asking the other what happens if no one signs the petition. The guy told him that they write in the signatures themselves. Mr. b reported it to the elections office and to someone else in the courthouse. We'll wait until the petition is turned and to see if our names are on it and then report it to the county attorney. Please be aware of this practice in...
  • The People's Veto of OBrewercare / Obamacare / Medicaid Expansion in Arizona

    07/19/2013 11:31:16 AM PDT · by fifedom · 1 replies
    AZ Gov Jan Obrewer jammed through this unfunded expansion of Medicaid by a parliamentary trick with the help of the Rats and some turncoat Republicans. This is an important issue that will cost the taxpayers $billions. Arizona state law allows citizens to petition to put a law on the ballot for an up or down vote. You can download the petition from the website.
  • White House Responds to All of Those Secession Petitions: There’s No Right to Secede

    The Blaze ^ | 1-12-13 | Madeleine Morgenstern
    The Obama administration on Friday responded to the wave of secession petitions that spread online following the November election, preaching unity over division and saying there’s no right to secede. “In a nation of 300 million people — each with their own set of deeply-held beliefs — democracy can be noisy and controversial. And that’s a good thing. Free and open debate is what makes this country work, and many people around the world risk their lives every day for the liberties we often take for granted,” wrote Jon Carson, director of the Office of Public Engagement. “But as much...

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 14, 2012 | David Martosko
    Now that disaffected Americans in all 50 states have petitioned the Obama administration for the right to secede from the United States, the door is open for far more important petitions — like a request to have a catered pizza party once Missouri strikes out on its own. (RELATED: White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation) Is it funnier that real people actually submitted these ten proposals to the White House, or that the administration has only removed two of them fr0m public view? You tell us. And if you actually sign any of these, you have no...

    The Washington Times ^ | June 7, 2012 | David Hill
    ANNAPOLIS — Organizers of a petition against Maryland’s same-sex marriage law have collected enough valid voter signatures to send the law to a November referendum, state election officials said Thursday. The state Board of Elections announced that local elections boards have verified 70,039 signatures on the petition to force a statewide vote on the law — exceeding the 55,736 signatures that were required to be turned in by June 30. The Maryland Marriage Alliance has led the petition effort against the law, which was passed in February by the General Assembly. The group says it submitted more than 122,000 signatures...

    Petitions circulating in Houston seek fall ballot propositions to mandate that police check the immigration status of detainees and that city contractors check the immigration status of all employees. The group called Stop the Magnet has been circulating the petitions for about six weeks, said communications director Maria Martinez. The group needs the signatures of about 20,000 registered voters on each petition to qualify them for the November ballot.
  • GAB TV: Webcam will be public’s only eye into recall review

    Wisconsin Reporter ^ | 1-20-12 | M. D. Kittle
    MADISON — A little advice for those who want to pop in and observe the recall petition review: Stay home and watch it on television. Only staff members and temporary employees of the Government Accountability Board, or GAB, which oversees state elections and campaigns, will be permitted in an at-present undisclosed location. And speaking of temp jobs, the board has had a hard time filling the petition review positions, mainly because too many prospective employment candidates have signed recall petitions targeting Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. GAB employees Thursday continued scanning some 1.9 million signatures, after having...

    The premise sounds captivating. Coming to you live from a secret government facility in Madison! The reality was less riveting as the state verification of recall documents, captured in real time on a webcam, began in earnest Wednesday. People across the country can watch the scanning of 309,661 pages of signatures for a recall of Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republican elected officials on laptops or iPhones atgab.wi.gov. It is the only viewing option. For now, the location of the processing site is not being disclosed to the public nor the media, and no one from the public or...

    Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel ^ | 1-12-12 | Patrick Marley
    Madison - State elections officials plan to enter the names of all those who sign recall petitions into a new database - a policy that will add to taxpayer costs and delay until summer when any recall elections would be held. The decision, announced Thursday, comes after a ruling last week by Waukesha County Circuit Judge J. Mac Davis that said the state Government Accountability Board must take steps to search for duplicate names and fictitious names as it reviews petitions to recall Gov. Scott Walker that are expected to be filed next week. "It is a time-consuming and very...

    New York Times ^ | December 31, 2011 | MICHAEL D. SHEAR
    DES MOINES — Virginia’s attorney general said on Saturday that he will propose emergency legislation to change the state’s ballot access laws in ways that would make it easier for candidates to qualify. The legislation would allow any presidential candidate to appear on the ballot for the state’s March 6 primary if they meet the requirements to qualify for federal matching funds. That would likely allow Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry to participate in the primary after both failed to gather the required signatures under Virginia’s current standards. “Recent events have underscored that our system is deficient. Virginia owes her...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 10-12-11 | AP
    Former Gov. Joe Kernan says a signature on a petition to place Barack Obama's name on Indiana's 2008 primary ballot isn't his, putting him among dozens of dubious signatures found in a newspaper's investigation. Kernan, a Democrat who campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primary, told the South Bend Tribune that he didn't sign the Obama document. "No, not at all," the former South Bend mayor said when asked whether the signature next to his name on the Obama petition looked like his own. "Nor does the printing look like mine." The Tribune reported Wednesday that it has talked...

    t's official. WSBT first told you that a long-time St. Joseph County Democratic Chair Butch Morgan had resigned. But there was some confusion over whether that in fact did happen, until shortly before 10 p.m. when his attorney confirmed it. Earlier Monday night, Morgan’s attorney told WSBT he was considering a leave of absence, not a resignation. That was after Indiana State Democratic Chairman Dan Parker sent WSBT an email stating Morgan resigned effective at 6 p.m. This comes as the St. Joseph County Prosecutor investigates the local Democratic Party for possible voter registration fraud. A South Bend Tribune and...

  • Obama’s "We The People" initiative bashed as unethical campaigning with taxpayer resources

    The Daily Caller ^ | 09/01/2011 | Matthew Boyle
    President Obama’s new “We The People” initiative smells exactly like a political campaign move and is unethical, says one large grassroots conservative group spokesman. FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon said it appears the White House is using taxpayer-funded government resources to play political games. Brandon told The Daily Caller that FreedomWorks is looking into the legality of the new program. “The White House [should be] about policy, not politics,” Brandon said in a telephone interview. “This is a political move.” The new Web campaign is a “direct reaction to the success of the tea party, the left and the Obama administration...
