Thousands of U.S. military votes uncounted or missing

There is a malicious hoax being circulated on the net. It’s an article on a website called the Duffle Blog, claiming that Mitt Romney would have won last Tuesday’s presidential election if our military’s absentee ballots had arrived on time instead of one day late.

Don’t fall for it!

They’re yanking your chains. Duffle Blog is a satire site, like The Onion. See it for yourself by scrolling to the end of the military absentee ballots article where it says:

This, however, is the REAL deal on the travesty called the 2012 military vote.

On August 2, 2012, our Hardnox reported that Democrats were suppressing the military vote in Ohio . Claiming it wasn’t “fair,” Team Obama sued Ohio to prevent the military from voting early, a long-standing policy that worked around military training and deployments.

This was followed by my post, on Oct. 1, 2012, that an alarmingly small percentage of military voters were requesting absentee ballots, although the majority of members of our military –an estimated two-thirds — would need to vote by absentee ballot.

Next, we learnt that on October 19, 2012, a transport plane carrying 4,700 pounds of mail inbound to our troops serving in Afghanistan, crashed in Shindad Air Base. Included in those now-destroyed 4,700 pounds of mail were countless absentee ballots. As noted by Kris Zane of The Western Center for Journalism, “Oddly, as soon as the story appeared, it disappeared. Did anyone die in the crash? What kind of plane was it? It seemed like a cover story in order to destroy the ballots.”

Election officials recommended resending the ballots, just two and a half weeks before the election. Given the slow military mail delivery service, it’s highly unlikely our troops in Afghanistan got the resent ballots in time and even more unlikely that, after our troops had filled in those absentee ballots, they actually reached the United States in time to be counted.

Now we are told that thousands of our military’s votes are uncounted or missing.

Susan Stallings reports for Examiner.com, Nov. 8, 2012:

According to the Naval Enlisted Reserve Association, scores of military absentee ballots cast in the 2012 Election will not be counted. U.S. Military personnel and their families are outraged: “Where the hell is this country’s moral compass?!” stated the mother of a 25 year old Marine who served in Afghanistan.

The military mail service is notoriously slow, and lawmakers have said that it could be almost two months after the election before ballots even arrive to be processed.

“We write to express concerns over another serious failure by the Department of Defense to safeguard the voting rights of our overseas military service members, which we believe could result in the imminent disenfranchisement of thousands,” stated a letter sent to Defense Department Secretary Leon Panetta by Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., John McCain, R-Ariz., Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla.. [...]

Michelle Malkin reported in an article published at Townhall.com, “Despite a federal law mandating that every base establish a voting assistance office (the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act), the Pentagon reported this summer that it could only contact such offices on half of the military’s bases. In Wisconsin alone this election cycle, at least 30 municipalities failed to send absentee ballots to members of the military before the 45-day election deadline.

Experts, veterans groups, and advocates for soldiers agree that a minimum 45-day mailing standard is necessary to allow sufficient time to get military absentee ballots home. But the federal government has done nothing to enforce the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act. In fact, according to Malkin, “the Obama administration has actively worked against pro-troop voting protection efforts by suing to stop Ohio’s military enfranchisement reforms.”

The bottom line is that our military, those men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom, those most deserving to exercise their right to vote, are being prevented from doing so. This is unconscionable.

Kris Zane reminds us that in 2008 the Obama campaign had engaged in massive voter fraud and  also sought unsuccessfully to suppress the military vote, which historically votes conservative.

Zane writes: “This time, they did both. Considering that the election was extremely close (Obama won by roughly two million votes), the question becomes: if our troops’ votes were counted, would Romney have won? Did Obama steal the election—again?”

I don’t have an iota of doubt that the suppression of the military vote is due to a Military Times poll finding that members of our active and reserve military overwhelmingly favor Romney over Obama 2 to 1.

Our soldiers get PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), maimed, and killed, but they don’t get to have their votes counted or, worse still, don’t even get to vote.

Our soldiers, as well as we civilians, must come forward and demand that the Electoral College must NOT cast their votes until our military’s absentee votes have all been counted!!!

Tell your representatives and senators!!!!!!

  1. If we even survive the next 4 years, what will we even be voting for in four years? Not sure if I will be participating after all this fraud! Nothing is what it seems. Just look at the Petraeus mess!

  2. Disgusting beyond belief. And yet our military will continue to serve and fight. God pray for them.

  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this informative post. Our precious military men and women are expected to suffer and give their lives, but are not entitled to vote! Clearly, more fraud is being discovered. What is a fact is that Obama doesn’t care and he has no intention of being fair. As you have stated before, he is in our faces; he is a man bent on being evil and performing and/or advocating for intrinsically evil practices.

  4. “Team Obama sued Ohio to prevent the military from voting early”
    ~Dr. Eowyn

    Did you even bother to look up that lawsuit? It’s Obama for America V. Husted, not too hard to find,

    I know the good people who post to this site are big fans of the U.S. Constitution, so you need to understand that this lawsuit was filed to counter restrictions on early voting implemented by Ohio’s Republican-led legislature, in violation of the Equal Protection Clause (US Const., Amend. XIV). It was the Republicans who were trying to tweak the vote in their favor by limiting early voting among likely Democratic voters. The lawsuit simply asked the court to fix this by allowing Ohio non-service members the same Monday deadline to vote that overseas civilians and servicemembers have.

    A federal judge sided with the plaintiffs.

    • You’re full of the crusty brown stuff. Did you even bother to click on the embedded link to the Breitbart article?:

      “On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is ‘arbitrary’ with ‘no discernible rational basis.’ Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as ‘arbitrary’ and having ‘no discernible rational basis,’ I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty.”

      Take your crusty brown argument to the Breitbart site: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/02/obama-campaign-sues-to-restrict-military-voting

  5. Our boys should have all the votes done. No one in office until all of them get their votes counted Now. It is not right for them to miss out on this. This is the reason Obama got into office the first time. He has a lot destroyed so he could win. DO NOT LET HIM GET AWAY WITH IT THIS TIME “PLEASE “.
    Sincerely, Marylin Parsley

  6. I have never seen such a coword as a presedent we have today. With that said, i also fill deeply sorry that our nation one that our troops risk their lives everyday to protect are treated in such a way. it is completly sad to see this happion to our nation and makes you wonder is this what our four fathers fought so hard for. So the people who protect us can be treated like this.
    I know im still yong im only 18 but this ant right. I myself would love to join the military. I want to join the air force and be a pararescue. But why treat our troops like this it ant right

  7. If the votes are LISTED on the internet and candidates selectable or even allowing people to list themselves as candidates (there will be 1000s probably but only a few viable ones will be good to vote for, at least though EVRYONE can get a crack at the Presidency, not just the rich or connected), there is no way that a person will lose a vote or have their vote uncounted. Just log in and see your own name there alphabetical Yellow Pages style. Whats so difficult about that? I do belive that salaried bureaucrat, military and police votes should not count though – simply to prevent vested interest (imagine the politicians getting all close with the police and military ensuring an undemocratic bloc that destroys democracy – i.e. if the police or militart vote for who and who we politicians will ensure salary raises at X levels etc.. See what this can turn USA into? A JUNTA, even as Parliamentary Privilegs and unlimited termas opr nepotism causes the same . . . ), not that any missing vote is any more tolerable.

    • “Just log in and see your own name there alphabetical Yellow Pages style.” That’s a little hard to do when you are in the middle of the sandbox either with sporadic internet service or access to none.

      Vested interest? Guess all union employees shouldn’t be able to vote either. Or those who receive a government entitlement. We all have a vested interest and a right to vote.

  8. The fraud was rampant for sure, we live in the middle of 6 branches of military and every branch had plenty of complaints.
    There is a website that lists all the ways fraud was committed, it starts something like 22 ways fraud was committed or something similar.
    Obama had 6 million less vote for him this time. Dems were backing away from him and his own staff was calling back to Chicago for possible employment. The last few weeks he couldn’t even fill an arena, the night before he drew 3000 people vs. Mitt drawing 30,000. Fraud, you bet.
    I heard a numbers guys on TV say Mitt won by 3-6 million. Mitt knew he was going to win and thus the shock of defeat. Fraud was implemented and no one stood up for the people. We all know how loud the left would have yelled if they suspected the GOP doing it.
