President Obama is extremely unpopular right now. The Democrat-dominated congress has the lowest approval rating in decades. And millions of bitter-clingers are attending Tea Party rallies to eagerly support candidates that will oppose the Progressive agenda.
In short, the question is not will the Democrats be solidly defeated in this week’s upcoming election, but how bad will it be?
Well, thanks to the typical efforts of Leftists to manipulate the vote, it won’t be as bad as it should be. With advance voting taking off this year, voter fraud has already become evident.
Selwyn Duke at American Thinker highlights a case in North Carolina, where voters attempting to select a straight Republican ticket are having their votes show up for all Democrats. Van Helsing at Red State and Moonbattery also brings that one up. Duke goes on, discussing SEIU shenanigans in Neveda, as well as the Democratic penchant for voter fraud in general:
It has now been learned that the technicians who work on the Nevada voting machines that have been checking off Harry Reid’s name are members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a leftist organization that has given tens of millions of dollars to Democrats. (By the way, do you remember all the complaints about “antiquated” paper ballots after the 2000 election? I knew that all the talk about “hanging chads” and the need for modern technology would lead to vote fraud. After all, now elections can be swayed by a well-placed, skilled hacker and there’s no paper trail.)Add to this the fact that the left is more brazen than ever. For one thing, laymen liberals, like their judges, are very influenced by precedent. And the liberal delusion that George W. Bush stole the 2000 election – thus drawing first blood – gives leftists a handy rationalization for actually stealing elections. Second, Barack Obama’s DOJ’s refusal to prosecute the Philadelphia Black Panthers – despite videotape evidence of their voter intimidation – sends the message that the left has almost carte blanche to sway elections by any means necessary.
But buried in the news is this curious story.
An Illinois county election official is telling the ABC 7 I-Team that thousands — potentially hundreds of thousands — of voters who are expecting a ballot sent to them by mail may be disenfranchised.
Chicagoan Rosia Carter is one of 404,000 registered Illinois voters who recently received vote-by-mail requests that were sent by the Illinois Democratic Coordinated Campaign.
“By the time I filled it out and sent it in, my vote would not get counted,” Carter said.
She and others called the I-Team when they noticed the return address is not their local election official but instead a PO box for the organization.
This sounds very innocent, but we know precisely how this will work out. The Democrats, who screwed it up to begin with, will run to a Democrat on the federal bench and beg to have these ballots cast.
“We can’t disenfranchise anyone (except the military),” the Democrats will cry. So the judge will ignore the law and ignore that it was the Democrats’ own fault. And the judge will allow the 400,000 additional votes to come in.
And of course, there’s the standard Democrat efforts to disenfranchise the military:
Earlier this month when it was discovered that many counties in the Land of Lincoln had not bothered to send out the ballots on time to soldiers overseas, the Illinois GOP field a suit to try and give the soldier’s more time to get their ballots back. Perez scolded that this effort to assure that our soldier’s votes counted was an evil “quite literally unprecedented in our nation’s history.”
So, according to Perez, Democrats not sending out ballots to the military is nothing to get all excited about, but the GOPs effort to give the military a few days more to get their votes mailed back in is a crime beyond the pale?
Worse, the partisan Perez tried to claim that the GOP was trying to steal the election.
Even out here in nearby Kansas City, the dead are returning this Halloween – to vote.
And Michelle Malkin follows up with a voter-fraud roundup:
Dingy Harry turns to election bribery. Guess who’s operating Las Vegas voting booths? Rhymes with S-E-I-U. Chicagoans are plagued by a botched vote-by-mail system. In Minnesota, charges are still rolling in from 2008 voter fraud cases. And, as I reported last night, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just undermined Arizona’s citizenship proof rules for voting — sabotaging efforts to ensure that only legal U.S. citizens vote in U.S. elections.
Malkin goes on:
In North Carolina and Nevada, early voters have encountered ballot machine glitches that favor Democrats in hotly contested races.
In Troy, N.Y., and Daytona Beach, Fla., police investigations into suspected absentee ballot fraud by elected government officials are underway.
In Harris County, Texas, the voter registrar admitted that 20 percent of voter registration forms submitted by liberal activist Houston Votes had problems. Election whistleblowers from True the Vote are now being investigated by the Obama Justice Department and have been slapped with an ethics complaint by the Texas Democratic Party and a left-wing billionaire George Soros-funded group called Texans for Public Justice.
For the past two years, Democratic leaders have had nothing to say about the militant New Black Panther Party goons who took it upon themselves to police a Philadelphia voting booth in 2008 wielding billy clubs and shouting anti-white slurs to suppress votes. Now, they’re treating citizen election monitors as if they are the jack-booted thugs. When I lauded efforts like the Minnesota Majority, which is training volunteers to watch polls and report on voter fraud, liberal critics accused me this week of “fascism.”
Silence dissent. Criminalize watchdogs. Whitewash fraud. Discourage grassroots engagement. Deny, deny, deny. These are the signature tactics of the left in the age of Obama.
The Left-wing Progressive message has failed. Rather than face that fact, the elites who want to tell you what you can or can’t do will take it upon themselves to further insist that you don’t know what’s best, and if you insist on voting “against your best interests,” they’ll just have to fix the problem. Through fraud.
A friend of mine told me his grandfather once said, “If you’re not cheating, you don’t want to win bad enough.” The Democrats really want to win.
