Now it’s Wisconsin: Blacks leave rally before Obama finishes speaking

It happened again.

People are walking out while President Ebola is still speaking.

On Oct. 19, 2014, at a Democratic campaign rally in Upper Marlboro in eastern Maryland for Anthony G. Brown, the state’s Obama-lookalike lieutenant governor who’s running for governor, in the midst of Obama’s 25-minute speech, members of his mainly black audience left in droves. (See “Mainly black crowd walks out on Obama at Democratic campaign rally”)

9 days later on Oct. 28, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they did it again. — at a rally in North Division High School for Democrat Mary Burke, who’s running for governor.

Daniel Halper reports for The Weekly Standard that as Obama was still speaking, telling the mainly black crowd they can vote even without a photo ID (wink, wink), the crowd began to file out.

Mike Lowe, a political reporter, tweeted: “Some people –not a lot, but some — are leaving as the President is speaking.”

Here’s a video that captures the rally-attendees leaving, even as Obama’s voice can be heard in the background:

From what I saw in the video, most, if not all, of the people leaving are black.

And yet, brown-noser Politico tweeted this:

Need any more evidence that Politico is left-leaning and should be shunned as a news source?

Karma is a bitch: MSM now say Obama is a danger to press freedom

The liberal main stream media (MSM) connived to elevate Obama to the presidency in 2008 and to reelect him in 2012. Remember Journolist? (See “Media Conspired to Protect Obama“)

The MSM refused to investigate Obama’s shadowy background and history of associating with known communists, including his childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who was a card-carrying member of the American Communist Party.

Having abdicated their responsibility to investigate this man who has more names and Social Security numbers than a dog has fleas, the MSM then deploy the derisive and dismissive label of “birthers” on Americans who question Obama’s constitutional birth eligibility to be president and why he continues to conceal his school, medical and other records.

Here’s just one glaring example of media bias that you’ve probably forgotten:

In 2013, the media made a BIG thing of Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Florida) taking a sip of water during his delivery of the official GOP response to Obama’s State of the Union address. As Reuters put it: “Across the Web, from Deadspin.com to The New Yorker, and on every cable news channel, the Florida senator’s sip from a small bottle of water as he delivered the official Republican response to U.S. President Barack Obama’s on Tuesday was the moment of the evening.”

And yet the media never even so much as whispered that Obama, the President of the most powerful country in the world, was so uncouth as to PICK HIS NOSE in public on live TV.

media-bias2

Now, 6 years into his presidency, more and more of the MSM are complaining about Obama’s press restrictions and lack of transparency. But not one complainer has expressed remorse for colluding to get this toxic man elected twice as president.

Here are some of those in the MSM who are bitching:

1. On May 14, 2013, New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan wrote, “it’s turning out to be the administration of unprecedented secrecy and unprecedented attacks on a free press.”

2. In June of 2013, as news came of the Obama Justice Department’s surveillance of reporters, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson said she was “concerned that the process of news gathering is being criminalized.” In January 2014, in an interview with Al Jazeera America, Abramson called the Obama administration “the most secretive” she has ever had to contend with.

3. In October 2013, David E. Sanger, veteran chief Washington correspondent of The New York Times, said, “This is the most closed, control freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

4. Writing in October 2013, Leonard Downie Jr. said that Michael Oreskes, a senior managing editor of The Associated Press, had told him some months ago that “The Obama administration has been extremely controlling and extremely resistant to journalistic intervention. There’s a mind-set and approach that holds journalists at a greater distance.”

5. Frank Sesno, a former CNN Washington bureau chief who is now director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, said the Obama administration imposes limitations on “everyday access necessary for the administration to explain itself and be held accountable.”

6. Financial Times correspondent Richard McGregor said “covering this White House is pretty miserable in terms of getting anything of substance to report on in what should be a much more open system.”

7. CBS veteran television news anchor and chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer said “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.

8. In November 2013, a large group of news organizations sent a letter to the White House protesting limited access for their photographers at newsworthy events involving the president: “The restrictions imposed by the White House on photographers covering these events, followed by the routine release by the White House of photographs made by government employees of these same events, is an arbitrary restraint and unwarranted interference on legitimate newsgathering activities. You are, in effect, replacing independent photojournalism with visual press releases.”

9. On March 10, 2014, after 21 years with the CBS network as its Washington bureau correspondent and occasional Evening News substitute anchor, Sharyl Attkisson resigned from CBS News, reportedly due to frustration over the network’s liberal bias and lack of dedication to investigative reporting.

10 . On March 21, 2014, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times’ foreign policy reporter James Risen called the Obama administration “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation,” and warned that the White House seeks to control the flow of information and those who refuse to play along “will be punished.” Risen also said “I think Obama hates the press.”

11. On Oct. 3, 2014, at a recent joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers, the Associated Press’ Washington Bureau chief Sally Buzbee detailed 8 ways the Obama administration is restricting access to information.

12. On Oct. 25, 2014, speaking at a White House Correspondents’ Association seminar, USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page called the Obama White House not only “more restrictive” but also “more dangerous” to the press than any other in history.

Popular Muslim media personality says Jesus will convert the world to Islam

Christ with angels

Jesus is a Muslim! Who knew? LOL

Adnan Oktar is the host of a popular TV show in Turkey; a prolific author; and a Sunni Muslim.

Leo Hohmann reports for WND, Oct. 27, 2014, that in a new documentary, “End Times Eyewitness,” Oktar says the Muslim world is eagerly anticipating the end days when their messiah, the Mahdi, as well as Jesus will come.

Jesus, whom Muslims call “Isa,” is not the messiah. Instead, Jesus is a Muslim. Not only is Jesus a Muslim, Jesus was never crucified nor resurrected from the dead.

Adnan Oktar

Adnan Oktar

And to top it off, Oktar says Jesus will soon return to Earth to convert the whole world to Islam! And this Muslim Jesus will be very persuasive.

The documentary is produced by WND Films and directed by a bible teacher and author of The Islamic Antichrist and Mideast Beast.

Oktar also says:

  • A group of supernatural beings made of fire called the djinn, from which we get the English word for “genie,” will assist Jesus and the Mahdi to convert the world to Islam.
  • However, there are bad djinn and good djinn. The latter are Muslim djinn, whose leader is the Mahdi. Only the good Muslim djinn will assist in converting the whole world to Islam.
  • According to Hijri calendar, the Mahdi (and the Muslim Jesus) will appear sometime between the years 1400 and 1500. Since the current Islamic year is 1435, the Mahdi and Muslim Jesus are likely already walking the earth! — in Istanbul! Oktar says, “Yes. We believe that Hazrat Mahdi has come and is busy carrying on his activities. We believe that he appeared in Istanbul, as that is how it is related in the Judaic accounts. This is how it is related in the Islamic accounts as well.”
  • The Mahdi will rule for seven years.
  • Oktar believes that he has the ability to communicate with the djinn (hopefully only the good Muslim djinn), and that they respect him and give him information.

Richardson points out that Oktar’s TV show is watched not just in Turkey, but throughout Central Asia, the Arab world and parts of Russia and Eastern Europe, Oktar has a close relationship with Turkey’s president and former prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who listens to and follows Oktar’s advice.

This is the same Erdoğan who saidThere is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.”

Turkey, which is a NATO ally, has already proved to be a growing thorn in the side of U.S. policy in the Middle East, refusing the use of its airbases for bombing raids against ISIS terrorists and providing safe haven for the militants. It has also been purchasing oil from ISIS-controlled oil wells, flooding the terrorist army with fresh cash.

In the documentary, Richardson says a coalition of Middle Eastern nations will invade Israel, and that Turkey is emerging as the dominant power in the Middle East and is positioning for a showdown with other powers, most notably Iran and Egypt. “The whole goal of the Turkish neo-Ottoman government is to rule the Middle East and the Islamic caliphate,” Richardson said.

Richardson believes Washington is still working with a foreign policy that is “based on a 10-year-old model” in which Turkey is seen as the moderate Muslim state that U.S. leaders would like to see replicated across the Middle East. “You still hear Joe Biden talk about how Erdoğan is his buddy and how they go way back together and he’s such a great friend,” Richardson said.

Richardson also says the Obama administration is “probably just putting on a little bit of a show,” with its limited bombing of ISIS targets in Iraq, and that “ISIS really is Turkey’s proxy in the Middle East,” supported financially and supplied by the Turkish Islamic government” in “a wider war against the Kurds, against Bashar Assad in Syria and against Iran. Richardson points out Turkey “refused the U.S. to use their soil for bombing raids against ISIS in Kobani, they allowed a lot of the refugees to flee into Turkey, but they would not allow them to go back and fight ISIS.”

Richardson believes Iran will eventually be drawn into Iraq to stop ISIS, especially if ISIS threatens the shrines or mosques in Iraq that are considered holy to Iran’s Shiite Muslim population. “If ISIS takes sacred cities in Iraq whether it’s Baghdad or Samara or Najaf, the Iranians are not going to let that happen and destroy those shrines and mosques…. I would expect even a year from now we could be in a very different situation. Iran already controls southern Iraq but within a year I would say their presence in Iraq could be far more overt.”

How America’s schools handled firearms in 1956

1956 firearms in the classroom

That was 58 years ago.

Now, if a kid even holds his hand like shooting a gun, or bites a cookie into the shape of a gun, or talks about guns, or wears an NRA t-shirt, or brings a souvenir shell-casing to school, or twirls a pencil, or plays with a toy gun in his home, he is sent to the principal’s office and could be expelled from school.

Powerful video of Black activists against Democrats

black activists2

The video below is a powerful heart-rending crie de coeur by four black activists — Mark Carter, Paul McKinley, Harold “Noonie” Ward, and Joseph Watkins. Speaking to fellow blacks, the four men tell the truth, that –

  • Democrats, not Republicans, have hurt blacks.
  • Blacks should stop voting Democrat — including for Obama — because Democrats have done nothing for blacks. Voting Democrat has meant blacks getting poorer and poorer.
  • Blacks commit crimes against fellow blacks, not just in the streets, but in city halls (like Detroit) and state capitols.
  • So-called Black “leaders” abuse, oppress, exploit and mis-govern fellow blacks.
  • Democrats’ talk about raising the minimum wage is ludicrous because blacks’ problem is not about minimum wage. Blacks don’t have jobs.
  • Liberals “force” blacks into a life of welfare. Blacks don’t want welfare. What blacks want are opportunities to go to work and to own businesses.
  • “They only come around when it’s time for elections.”
  • The hundreds of billions of federal dollars to “improve” black communities actually go to line the pockets of Democratic political groups, many of them headed by blacks.

To the above list, should be added this:

  • Obama’s open-border illegal immigration policy hurts black Americans.

2014 Election fraud: campaign worker stuffs 100s of absentee ballots into Arizona ballot box

The video above is surveillance camera footage of a man stuffing hundreds of absentee ballots into the ballot machine at an Arizona (early) voting station.

At the 0:30 mark, he begins inserting the envelopes containing the absentee ballots. More than 7 minutes later, he finally finishes and leaves — that’s how long it took for him to feed those absentee ballots into the machine.

AZ ballot box stuffer

Jon Street reports for The Blaze that on August 25, 2014, during Arizona’s primary election, an Arizona county party official said he saw the man stuffing “hundreds” of ballots into the ballot box.

A. J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party, said, “A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona (CBA) T-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement.”

LaFaro provided the Arizona Daily Independent with the following account of what happened:

CBA worker: “What’s your problem?”

LaFaro: “I don’t have a problem.”

CBA worker: “Stop watching me. You’re annoying me.”

LaFaro: “One of your ballots isn’t sealed.”

CBA worker: “It’s none of your business. What’s your name?”

LaFaro: “I’m the chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party. What’s yours?”

CBA worker:“Go f*** yourself. I don’t have to tell you who I am.”

LaFaro said he later submitted a public information request and obtained the above surveillance video from 12:30-1:30 pm on Aug. 25.

LaFaro said it all happened as he was working with the elections staff during early ballots processing. The team in charge of processing the ballots got “way ahead” so the information systems coordinator convened an extended lunch period from 11:30- 1:00 p.m.

It was between 12:54 and 1:04 that LaFaro said he was seated at one of the cubicles, heard a loud thud and turned around to see the man you see in the video stuffing “hundreds” of ballots. LaFaro described the man as a “vulgar, disrespectful, violent thug” with “no respect for our laws.” LaFaro would have followed the man to his car to get his tag number but did not because he “feared for [his] life.” LaFaro lamented that “America used to be a nation of laws where one person had one vote. I’m sad to say not anymore.”

On its website, Citizens for a Better Arizona says it is an “outgrowth of the grassroots movement that led to the historic recall of former [Republican] President of the [Arizona State] Senate Russell Pearce.” In 2012, CBA led the failed recall attempt on AZ governor Jan Brewer.

CBA describes itself as a non-profit “501 C 4 Social Welfare Organization,” “a predominantly volunteer driven organization of Republicans, Democrats and Independents committed to improving the quality of life of all Arizonans – better schools, better health care, better jobs, better government and a better, more civil tone of respect and decency when it comes to solving Arizona’s problems.”

According to the Center for Responsive Secrets’ website, OpenSecrets.org, CBA had overspent in 2004 and 2006 by tens of thousands of dollars. That leads me to wonder why the organization is still functioning. There is no information on OpenSecrets.org on CBA’s membership or donors.

When asked about the CBA workers ballot-stuffing, Yvonne Reed, spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Elections Department, said the event occurred at an “operations center,”  and “there’s no investigation. There’s nothing wrong with that. People can bring in someone else’s ballot if those people are willing to trust that individual. There’s no law against bringing in ballots and placing them in the receptacle for early ballots.

But a reader of The Blaze, Walter P, observed that “Here in SC, if someone other than the voter delivers the absentee ballot he ballot envelope must be filled out by the voter naming the person turning in the envelope & that person must show ID to be allowed to turn in the envelope.”

Another reader, PJNevada, commented that in his state, “an absentee ballot has to be returned by the voter directly to the registrar of voters, either in person or by mail; not just stuffed en masse into a ballot box at a random polling place.”

In the case of this ballot-stuffing incident in Arizona, even if the Maricopa County Elections Department insists that “there’s no law” against it, a CBA worker stuffing HUNDREDS of absentee ballots has the appearance, if not the actuality, of impropriety, made even more suspicious by the man’s rude “Go fuck yourself” retort to Mr. LaFaro.

Update (Oct. 29, 2014):

My sister-in-law, who lives in California, sent me this email:

I’ve been a clerk at polling stations for many years.  Absentee ballots or Vote By Mail ballots are returned in a signed and sealed envelopes by the voters themselves. If another person dropped it off, we have to check the envelope to make sure that it has been signed by the voter and the designated person who dropped it off. Then we put it into the ballot box in their presence.  The burden is on those people who verify these envelopes as legal before the ballots are counted.

Non-citizen voters gave Obama the edge in 2008 and 2012 — and will in 2014 if we don’t do something about it

I read this article 2 days ago, but found it so depressing that I can bring myself to post it only today.

Ask yourself this question:

When you registered to vote, did anyone ask you to produce proof of your U.S. citizenship?

No? Instead, at best you were asked to produce a photo I.D., like a driver’s license to prove who you say you are. However, a driver’s license doesn’t and can’t prove you are a U.S. citizen.

It turns out ILLEGAL aliens in the United States have been voting in our elections, even though they are not eligible and are not supposed to vote. And they are getting away with this travesty precisely because voter registration doesn’t require proof of U.S. citizenship. That is why Democrats are so intent on allowing illegal aliens obtain a driver’s license.

In an article for The Washington Post on October 24, 2014, “Could Non-Citizens Decide the November Election?,” political scientists Jesse Richman and David Earnest report on their stunning research finding that non-U.S. citizens had voted in both the 2008 and 2010 elections, and they did so in sufficient numbers that they likely changed the outcome, that is, the election and reelection of Barack Obama to the presidency, as well as the election of a Democratic majority to the U.S. Senate.

Jesse Richman is Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Old Dominion University, and Director of the ODU Social Science Research Center. David Earnest is Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Old Dominion University, and Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Studies in the College of Arts and Letters.

Their research findings will be published in a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies.

This was Richman and Earnest’s research methodology. Using data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), the two political scientists:

  • Assembled a sample of 32,800 for the 2008 election, 339 of whom were non-citizens.
  • Assembled a sample of 55,400 for the 2010 election, 489 of whom were non-citizens.
  • Matched respondents to voter files so as to verify whether they’d actually voted.

Here are the political scientists’ research findings:

  • Although most non-U.S. citizens do not register to vote, let alone vote, however –
  • More than 14% of non-U.S. citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they had registered to vote.
  • 6.4% of non-citizens voted in 2008.
  • 2.2% of non-citizens voted in 2010.
  • Richman and Earnest concluded that enough non-citizens had voted in 2008 and 2012 so that their votes changed the outcome of those elections.
Estimated Voter Turnout by Non-Citizens
2008 2010
Self reported and/or verified 38 (11.3%) 13 (3.5%)
Self reported and verified 5 (1.5%) N.A.
Adjusted estimate 21 (6.4%) 8 (2.2%)

In the words of Richman and Earnest:

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

Richman and Earnest also found that photo I.D., a policy advocated by conservatives to prevent voter fraud, “appears strikingly ineffective.” As many as three quarters of the non-citizens who indicated they were asked to provide photo identification at the polls claimed to have subsequently voted.

The political scientists propose that public information may be a better method to reduce voting by non-citizens because the more educated non-citizens were less likely to violate the law by voting. As an example, in 2008, no non-citizens with a college degree or higher voted, whereas non-citizens with less than a college degree were significantly more likely to have voted. This suggests that non-citizen voting may be due to a lack of awareness about the illegality of their voting.

Based on the 2008 and 2012 precedents, Richman and Earnest justly ask if control of the Senate in 2014 will be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens.

If early voting in North Carolina is any indication, the answer is “Yes.”

Kenric Ward reports for Watchdog that early voting began last Thursday, Oct. 24, in North Carolina, and already the state’s election board had found 154 ineligible non-citizen voters on its poll lists.

Those 154 illegal immigrants are on NC’s voter rolls, courtesy of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA designees can be up to 31 years old. When  illegal immigrants are certified under DACA, deportation proceedings are frozen. That opens a window for those illegals to obtain driver’s licenses in North Carolina, said James Johnson, president of North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement.

And with driver’s license in hand, unscrupulous and dishonest illegal aliens can and do register to vote.

NC’s State Board of Elections are examining more than 9,000 additional voters’ names for their questionable legal status. But they do not expect to finish checking before early voting had begun. Special counsel Brian LiVecchi told Watchdog.org that “We don’t know what we don’t know.”

“We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place,” said Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina. “There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.”

NC State Rep. Christopher Mills (R-Hampstead) wrote a letter to the Board of Elections citing “an extremely large number of non-citizens” on North Carolina’s voter rolls. Mills asked that election officials explain the “likely procedure in which these non-citizens were allowed to register to vote … and the board’s actions for immediate removal.”

So what do we do about this outrageous travesty?

I suggest the following:

  1. Contact your Congress critters and DEMAND that they look into this. Click here.
  2. Contact your state’s attorney general, who is supposed to oversee elections, and DEMAND that they inspect the voters’ registrations to spot and eliminate non-U.S. citizens. Click here to find out the name, address, and phone no. of your attorney general.
  3. Publicize by disseminating this post to your family, friends, and contacts via e-mail and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)!!!
