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.)!!!

MASSIVE 2012 VOTER FRAUD: 35,750 with same name & DOB voted in 2 states

More evidence that Obama and the Dems stole the 2012 elections.

More evidence that the United State of America has devolved into a Third World and third rate country.

DeadPeopleVoteBryan Preston reports for PJ Media, April 2, 2014:

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.

  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

The second point is key, as double voting is election fraud under state and federal statutes. Punishment for double voting in federal elections can include jail time.

In October 2012, Project Veritas produced video showing a Barack Obama campaign worker helping a voter register to vote in both Texas and Florida.

The Interstate Crosscheck examines 101 million voter records in more than two dozen participating states.

The findings, while large, leave open the question of just how widespread double voting might be since 22 states did not participate in the Interstate Crosscheck.

In addition to the above, the crosscheck found that more than 13,000 deceased voters remain on North Carolina’s rolls, and that 81 of them showed voter activity in their records after death.

North Carolina officials are now calling for tighter election security.

acorn_vote_fraud

That’s the call to action from NC officials? Pathetic.

What this calls for is a class-action lawsuit to overturn and nullify the 2012 Election’s supposed results — a lawsuit that should be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, only the sound of crickets from the MSM on the massive 2012 voter fraud . . . .

Obama 2012 campaign conspired to register 11,000 in NC against state law

fraud

Only those who have eyes but refuse to see, and ears but refuse to hear, ignore the massive vote fraud that was perpetrated across America in the pivotal 2012 election.

As examples, there were:

  • 59 voting divisions in the city of Philadelphia where Mitt Romney did not receive a single vote.
  • Reports of voting machines repeatedly switching votes from Romney to Obama.
  • Counties with voter registration rates of more than 100%.
  • Reports of people unable to vote because records allegedly (and erroneously) showed they had already voted.
  • Reports of Obama voters being bussed in from outside the state.
  • An Obama campaign worker recorded on tape helping someone to register to vote in more than one state.
  • Tens of thousands of military overseas ballots being lost or delivered late.

For more, see “22 signs of Democrat Voter Fraud in 2012 Election,”

Despite all these reports and signs of vote fraud, neither the Romney campaign nor the Republican National Committee (RNC) did anything to expose the fraud or challenge the alleged election results.

If you’re wondering why and don’t know about a strange legal agreement signed by the RNC 30 years ago, the 1982 Consent Decree, in which the RNC agreed not to prevent or challenge vote fraud, see my post of Nov. 15, 2012, “Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud”.

And so it’s up to the American people and citizens groups to do the job of the useless Republican Party.

One such group is the Civitas Institute, a conservative organization in North Carolina dedicated to “The vision … of a North Carolina whose citizens enjoy liberty and prosperity derived from limited government, personal responsibility and civic engagement.”

James Simpson reports for Examiner.com, Feb. 20, 2013, that North Carolina does not allow online voting. But the Civitas Institute discovered that the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Obama 2012 Campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the Internet in violation of state law. SBE staff authorized an Obama campaign website, Gottaregister.com, to use a web-based registration program.

Civitas has confirmed this through records requests filed with all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The counting is not yet complete.

Currently California, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Nevada, Maryland, and New York allow some form of online voter registration. North Carolina and many other states do not. For obvious reasons, this method is fraught with vulnerabilities to fraud.

Another, still on-going, study by Civitas Institute finds that 832 people over 112 voted by absentee ballot in 2012, but there are only 330 people over 110 in all of the U.S. according to the 2010 census. 68.5% of those amazing over-112-years-old Americans were Democrats (SURPRISE!), 27.5% Republicans, and 4% unaffiliated. A glitch causes ballots to default to January 1, 1900 when voters do not enter their birth date, which accounts for most of this. This is just one of many problems with NC voter rolls, which are in a shambles and vulnerable to fraudulent votes.

Simpson concludes:

“the Obama administration…have shown themselves over and over to be completely contemptuous of the law – from vote fraud to Fast-n-Furious; from Benghazi-gate to recess appointments and unconstitutional executive orders, the list is endless. As I described in a WorldNetDaily article last November, the Obama administration was willing to use whatever means at its disposal to win this election, legal and illegal. Up until now, my assumption has been that, while they plainly engaged in vote fraud in some circumstances, it wasn’t enough to throw the election. Depending upon whether or not they used tricks like this nationwide – and they probably did – they may have in fact stolen this election.”

“…the North Carolina State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Obama 2012 Campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the Internet in violation of state law.”

GASP!!! That’s a conspiracy!!!

Just tell that to the next pretentious media personality snootily dismissing by deriding those looney “conspiracy theorists.”

H/t Obama Release Your Records
