California DMV says non-citizens “may have been” added to voter rolls

California DMV license/voter registration going as planned.

From East Bay Times: An internal audit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles released Monday shows about 1,500 customers may have been improperly registered to vote.

“Approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the DMV wrote in a letter Monday to the Secretary of State’s Office. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.” Non-citizens are among the affected customers, according to Jessica Gonzalez, a DMV spokeswoman.

In early September, the DMV revealed it sent 23,000 erroneous voter registrations. These additional 1,500 errors occurred when DMV technicians processed customer requests at field offices to change voter eligibility responses on driver license applications.

The DMV said none of the processing errors occurred through the fault of the customer. None of the affected customers are undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.

“We have worked quickly with the Department of Technology to correct these errors and have also updated the programming and added additional safeguards to improve this process,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla responded with a harsh letter to the state’s DMV and Department of Technology.

“I remain deeply frustrated and disappointed that persistent errors by the DMV and CDT have undermined public confidence in your basic responsibility to collect and transmit accurate voter registration information, as has been required by federal law for 25 years.”

Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, was even more critical, calling the situation “the unraveling of a cover-up.”

“Nothing surprises me anymore coming out of the DMV,” Patterson said. “This is probably the tip of the iceberg. I think we can expect more of these kind of registration problems.

Of course: California DMV botched 23,000 voter registrations

From SF Chronicle: The state Department of Motor Vehicles incorrectly registered 23,000 people to vote, including putting the wrong political party and vote-by-mail preferences for those Californians, the embattled agency said.

The DMV, which has been criticized for excessive wait times in its offices despite millions in new funding, said Wednesday that the erroneous voter registration data were sent to the California secretary of state between April 23 and Aug. 5.

It said the errors occurred when DMV technicians had more than one customer record open on a computer at the same time, causing those records to merge. Updated software and staff training will prevent the mistake from occurring again, DMV officials said.

The errors also included signing people up to vote who did not register and putting the wrong language preference. The DMV said none of the errors involved undocumented immigrants illegal aliens, who are eligible to sign up for driver’s licenses. (Yeah, trust them not to make other mistakes!)

Affected customers will be sent letters noting the DMV’s error and how to correct them, the agency said.

“We are committed to getting this right and are working closely with the secretary of state’s office to correct the errors that occurred,” DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said in a statement.

The revelation brought immediate criticism from Republican lawmakers who have chided the DMV during Capitol hearings on excessive wait times. A Republican-backed proposal to investigate the DMV was killed by Democrats during a legislative audit committee hearing Aug. 8.

Officials in the department sent a status report to lawmakers Wednesday saying their wait times are down 30 minutes statewide.

The voter registration errors, which the department discovered Aug. 5, were not made public until Wednesday.

“It is one thing to wait in long lines, but quite another and even more troubling, to walk in to the DMV registered in one party to walk out registered in another,” said Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R-Fresno. “We have had similar complaints from Central Valley residents who have contacted my office. I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg. Something is being covered up that must be found, disclosed and fixed. The DMV cannot be trusted to police itself.

Shouldn’t Naturalized Citizens Registering to Vote Be Able to Read English?

By the time an immigrant has gone through the entire process of naturalization to gain citizenship and the right to vote, they should be able to speak and read English, the language of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

Why then, does the  Washington State Secretary of State Voter Registration website provide for so many non-English speakers? 

All that is required to register to vote online is to provide your state-issued Drivers License or Washington ID number and click the boxes to affirm you meet the criteria to register to vote.

Washington State also has long had a policy of providing Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens who only have to pay the fee, take the test and document their residency with a utility bill. 

watch?v=QQuTODU2-9A

Most counties in Washington State are “vote by mail”.  We have no polling places.  The ballots are received in the mail about 10 days before the election. Voters must sign the back of the return envelope and mail them on or before election day.

Why We Lost the 2012 Election

We produce proof of U.S. citizenship when we apply for a U.S. passport. But when we register to vote, no proof of U.S. citizenship is required.

We are asked for our driver’s license to prove our identity (I.D.) when we use a credit card at stores. But when we vote, no I.D. is required.

Why is that?

And if state governments actually try to implement a Voter I.D. law, Democrats cry “RAAACISM!”

Why is that?

The answer is simple:

Because not requiring proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote and not requiring an I.D. to vote benefit Democrats.

Why is that?

The answer, once again, is simple and obvious:

Because there are Democrat voters who are not U.S. citizens, which of course is unlawful, fraudulent, and criminal.

What does that make the Democrat Party?

Answer: A criminal political party that actively aids and abets fraud.

Do we have evidence of non citizens voting?

You betcha.

Here’s a video of illegal aliens — non U.S. citizens — who are registered to vote in Florida. In so doing, each of them not only committed a felony, they stole a vote from an American citizen.

H/t Sage_brush

There are also confirmed reports of sizable numbers of non citizens voting in Georgia and Colorado.

The above video was posted on YouTube on April 4, 2012, with a request to viewers to notify federal and state lawmakers and candidates for public office.

NOTHING was done.

And so Americans went to vote on November 6, 2012, having been told that we must exercise our sacred right as U.S. citizens secured for us by the sacrifice of countless soldiers who had died defending that right. Blah, blah, blah.

All bullshit.

While Americans dutifully trotted to our respective voting places across the fruited plains, countless nonAmericans — whose numbers we will never know — also trotted (or were bussed) to voting places across the corrupted plains to commit acts of felony.

How do we know that?

  1. Because on November 6, 2012, Obama did not win a single state that requires photo IDs to vote. In other words, Mitt Romney won every state that requires voter I.D. (Read more about this in Terry’s post, “One More Glass of Whine.“)

  2. Because on November 6, 2012, Obama won 75% of Latino voters nationwide. (“President Barack Obama won reelection on Tuesday thanks in part to near-record levels of support from Latino voters, who came out in huge numbers to support him over GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.” –HuffPo)

Even more striking is this: those states that Romney won not only require voter I.D., they also do not traditionally vote Republican. Which means Romney was able to overcome those states’ Democrat-leaning disposition by convincing them of the failure of Obama’s presidency.

Our present electoral system is virtually defenseless to fraud, but the ruling Democrat Party refuses to do anything about it. Nor has the Republican Party done anything about it. In fact, without the collusion of the GOP, we wouldn’t have non U.S. citizens voting. Without the collusion of the Republican Party through the years, we wouldn’t have millions and millions of illegal aliens crossing the border into America and allowed to stay in America to have children who now demand that they be given U.S. citizenship via the Dream Act. Becoming U.S. citizens, those children in turn can sponsor their parents to be U.S. citizens. All of which means the Dream Act is really just Orwellian newspeak for Amnesty for Illegals.

All of which means our present political system is utterly corrupt.

So now we know why we lost the 2012 election.

Mitt Romney and the 58,163,978 Americans who’d voted for him didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell.

  • We lost because of the Democrats’ massive cheating.
  • We lost because 3 million Americans who had voted for John McCain in 2008 chose to stay home on November 6. Among them are the peevish sulking Ron Paul cultists who, by refusing to “hold their noses” to vote for what they call “the lesser of two evils,” helped elect not just the GREATER of two evils but the Devil himself.

Now the Demonrats have the White House for at least four more years and an even bigger majority in the U.S. Senate who will ensure the smooth passage of at least two leftwingers to the Supreme Court.

In the meantime, the usual betrayers in the GOP — including Sean Hannity, you piece of shit — are already clamoring for the Republican Party to “change” to make itself “more appealing” to Hispanic, women, and young voters.

Yes indeed! Let’s “accommodate” Hispanics with amnesty for illegals! Let’s “accommodate” women with free birth control! Let’s just get rid of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act altogether! Let’s just “forgive” have taxpayers (the 50.5% of Americans suckers who still pay federal income taxes) pick up the $117 billion student loans — a bubble just poised to burst, which promises to be even bigger and more disastrous than the 2008 housing bubble.

Even more diabolical are those in the GOP who are now using the fact that despite good Catholics (those who attend Church weekly) and evangelical Christians turning out in greater numbers for Romney than in 2008, Romney still “lost,” as a cudgel AGAINST Christians! They argue that Romney’s “loss” means Republicans must now de-emphasize moral issues of abortion and gay marriage — the very issues that concern evangelicals and faithful Catholics — so as to “appeal” to those women and youths who had voted for Obama.

In other words, let’s just remake the GOP into Demonrats!

Such talk is the height of irresponsibility and deception because its proponents ignore all the REAL reasons why Romney lost. These Republicans should be at once shunned and countered with this simple question:

You are proposing radical changes based on your claim to know why Romney lost. But how do you know that?

How do you know that Romney lost because of who he is and what he did or did not do, instead of because of Democrat voter fraud, Ron Paulists’ abstention, and suppression of the military vote? Why are you blaming faithful Christians for Romney’s loss when Romney’s campaign focused on the economy and wasn’t even about social issues (abortion, gay marriage, etc.)?

If the solution is to remake the GOP to become more like Demonrats, why do we even bother to have a two-party system?

One small thing Christians can do to defeat Obama

Last night, FOTM received an e-mail from Jonathan Wakefield, the author of Saving America: A Christian Perspective of the Tea Party Movement (Crossover, 2012). He’s asking all Christians to do our little part to ensure Obama will not get another four years, by helping to register more voters. Here is his email, followed by a brief description of his book, which I highly recommend!

~Eowyn

Friends,

I come to you today with a request—one that I hope will affect the 2012 elections, and every one thereafter, helping to restore America to her founding principles so that we can again live freely under the Heavenly King instead of in slavery under the earthly king of Big Government.

I’m not asking you to join an organization, make phone calls, knock on doors, work the polls, or drive anyone to them (though those are all great things to do). My request is simple: ask your pastor or priest if you can conduct a voter registration drive in your church one Sunday morning (or multiple Sundays) before your state’s registration deadline for the November 6th elections (the deadline in my home state of Virginia, for example, is October 15th).

All the materials you need—including voter registration forms, flyers or inserts for your bulletins about the importance of Christians’ voting, and short but powerful videos you can show in church—are found here: http://championthevote.com/churchvoterregistrationdrivekit.html. Full instructions are at the link, but basically all you have to do is show up at church on a Sunday morning, hand out and collect registration forms (or have people mail them on their own, if that’s their preference), and deliver those you collect to your local registrar. Some are even bringing laptops to help others register online instead. Simple.

If you at all doubt the enormous impact Christians can have in shaping the future of our nation, watch this short video:

The statistics on committed Christians’ lack of voting are—I’m sorry, but there’s no way to sugarcoat this—shameful, considering so many Christians preached, fought, and died to secure our right to freely choose our own representatives and protect us from an oppressive government. A lot of those non-voting Christians aren’t even registered.

The great news is that we can change this. My understanding is that the likelihood of someone’s voting goes up by 50% if they just register. So let’s register as many Christians as possible so they can join us in honoring God by exercising the immeasurable gift He gave us in choosing our own leaders.

There’s nothing partisan about this, by the way. This isn’t Republican or Democrat. This is simply about encouraging Christians to do their duty and vote, choosing some wise men so God will set them over us (Deut. 1:13, paraphrased).

If you’re not interested in conducting a drive or your church won’t let you, would you at least forward this e-mail and/or my video to anyone else you think might be interested? I want to make an enormous impact this November—and beyond. I believe the future of this nation hangs on how Christians decide to engage—or not engage.

Please let me know if you’re interested or you have any questions. And please do share this message with others as you feel led. I’m here to help however I can. Also, if you happen to go to my church and you want to help me with the registration drive I’m trying to organize, please let me know.

Thanks, everyone!

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Saving America: A Christian Perspective of the Tea Party Movement

America faces some of its biggest crises ever. After reaching the brink of economic collapse in 2008, Americans awoke to the reality of how fragile their nation had become. Many identified the source as the dramatic expansion of governmental power at all levels under both political parties, and they united to form the Tea Party movement to advance the principles of limited government. Numerous books have been written about the Tea Party since its surprising explosion onto the political scene, but few if any have been written from a Christian perspective despite many Christians being active in the movement. In SAVING AMERICA – A Christian Perspective of the Tea Party Movement, author Jonathan Wakefield, a Tea Party leader and an ordinary citizen with virtually no political engagement before 2009, examines this powerful movement with an insider’s perspective from a biblical context. He explains why he felt compelled to finally get active in helping shape his nation’s future, making the case that the Tea Party’s core principles align with Scripture and represent America’s best hope for surviving its current crises and ultimately thriving again. Written for Tea Party supporters and skeptics, as well religious and non-religious individuals, SAVING AMERICA, will challenge all readers to think through their basic assumptions and beliefs and consider their roles as responsible citizens at this critical time in world history.

Black and Young Voters Lose Enthusiasm for Obama


What matters in elections is not just numbers. Enthusiasm counts. The political party with the most energized and determined voters likely will win. That phenomenon is called the enthusiasm index. Each year since 2006, including the mid-term elections last November, the enthusiasm index has pointed to the eventual electoral outcomes.
Why does enthusiasm matter? because enthusiastic people are motivated to actually go to the voting booth on election day.
By that indicator, there’s a ray of hope for our side.
Kevin “Coach” Collins writes for Floyd Reports, Dec. 23, 2011, that a USAToday/Gallup survey of thousands of registered voters in Obama’s 12 must-have states has bad news for The Fraud and the Dems. Two key Democratic groups — younger voters and blacks — who were wild about Obama in 2008 are now decidedly lukewarm and apathetic.
In 2008, 50% of 18-to-34 year-olds voted, with two-thirds of them for Obama. But the survey found that now, just 32% are enthused about voting in 2012.
It’s the same story in the case of “non-whites” (read: blacks) voters. Only 31% of blacks are enthusiastic about the 2012 elections, which is 34 points under its 2008 level and less than half of the 65% enthusiasm level black voters showed in 2008 when 97% voted for Obama.
In contrast, the survey found that Republicans are more engaged in following the issues of next year’s election than Democrats by a stunning 20 points (68% to 48%). Republican seniors, who are the most conservative voting bloc, (and double the size of the liberal voting bloc) are the most enthusiastic voting group.
In addition to the enthusiasm index, there is another reason for hope.
Voter registration in the 12 swing states is favoring the GOP. Since 2008, those identifying as Democrats has shrunk by four points, and those declaring themselves Republicans has risen five points. Even if everything else were equal, this factor alone could spell doom or Obama.
But do we hear or read about this in the MSM? No!
Collins noted that, in reporting the results of the survey, the MSM buried the worst of the news. Initial online versions left out critical portions of the story, and the truth was only available in the newsstand version of the article.
The lack of enthusiasm among the young and black voters presents a difficult obstacle for Obama to overcome. Even if he goes into high gear on the campaign trail, to raise these two groups’ enthusiasm level by 34 points will be difficult in the space of the next 10 months.
All the more reason for our side to keep an eagle eye out for voter fraud in 2012!
H/t beloved fellow Tina.

ACORN Would be Proud

Recount? 1 in 7 Illinois Counties Has More Voters Than Adults

Via NewsMax.com: One in 7 counties in Illinois has more voters on the electoral rolls than the number of adult residents the U.S. Census tallied, a new study has found. The state’s Board of Elections is trying to determine why the figures in 14 counties are so out of whack, according to the Quad-Cities Dispatch-Argus.
The northwestern Illinois paper, which covers two of the counties, reports that there are 125,875 registered voters in Rock Island County, but only 114,359 residents over 18.
Rock Island County Clerk Karen Kinney said there could be several reasons for the discrepancies. “People move out of Rock Island County, and nobody notifies us,” she said. “People die and no one notifies us.”
The report also shows Mercer County has 14,295 registered voters, while Census numbers show the county has only 12,714 residents age 18 or older. “We have to purge our records sometime this summer,” Mercer County Clerk Phyllis Bewley said. Ms. Bewley said the discrepancy doesn’t mean any foul play has taken place.
Riiiiight…..No foul play.  ACORN may not be involved but their track record might suggest otherwise. Coincidence? I’m sure ACORN would be proud.

Arizona Has More Independents Than Democrats


Frustrated by the federal government’s refusal to enforce its own immigration laws, Arizona — a border state on the frontline of the illegal alien invasion — was the first State in the Disunion to pass its own immigration law last April. For that, Arizona was met with threats of boycott from other states such as California, as well as a lawsuit by the Obama administration.
Now Arizona is leading the way in the American people’s increasing repudiation of the two party system. For the first time, the number of Arizonans who register as non-partisan Independents (“other”) exceeds that of registered Democrats. Here’s the breakdown:

Registered Republicans……1,142,602…..35.8% of Arizona’s registered voters

Registered as “other”……….1,010,725…..31.66% of registered voters

Registered Democrats……..1,008,689…..31.59% of registered voters

Ginger Rough of the Arizona Republic reports, Jan. 24, 2011: 

The number of Arizona voters who do not designate an affiliation with any political party – the category that includes independents – has exceeded one million for the first time, according to numbers released Monday by the Secretary of State’s office.
It also marks the first time the number of independent voters is greater than those registered in one of the state’s two major political parties — in this case, the Democrats.
As of Jan. 1, there were 1,010,725 voters registered as “other” in the state, an increase of 28,248 since voter-registration statistics were released last fall. They account for 31.66 percent of Arizona’s registered voters.
The number of registered Democrats, by comparison, stands at 1,008,689. The Democratic Party has added just over 5,700 voters since November’s general election….
Meanwhile, the Republican Party — which won all the statewide races in November and holds a strong majority in the Arizona Legislature — picked up 10,803 voters during the same time period. There are now 1,142,602 registered Republican voters in the state.
But it’s not all rosy in the Grand Old Party. In the past two years, the percentage of voters who designate themselves as Republican has slipped from 37.1 to 35.8. Arizona Republican party spokesman Matt Roberts said the trend is worrisome, but he believes the GOP can lure new voters with strong leadership, both in state and in Washington, D.C….
Libertarians continue to make up a little less than 1 percent of the state’s total voter registration, with 24,880; there are 5,040 voters registered as Green Party members. Total voter registration is now 3,191,939.
