Battle for Wisconsin Update

HUGE voter turnout.

According to the Waukesha Patch….

“At 6:30 we already had our first lady in line,” said Jane Neill, chief inspector at the Waukesha West High School polling location. “And we had a line before we opened at 7.”

Within the first hour of the polls opening at West, 306 voters had already cast ballots, which is 10 percent turnout for that location.

Neill said the line to vote stretched to the street very early in the morning, which signaled a massive turnout. She said the line wasn’t even as long that early for the 2008 presidential election.

What does it mean? Considering that half of teachers, when given the chance to opt out of automatic Union dues withholding, chose to do so. That, combined with the improving economic conditions in Wisconsin, are very encouraging signs.

It’s Official: I Was Disenfranchised in the 2008 Presidential Election

If one person votes illegally it cancels out my vote.  It’s as if I didn’t participate in the electoral process at all.  If two people vote fraudulently then it’s as if both you and I didn’t participate.

Virginia just passed a Voter ID bill this year in an attempt to ensure the sanctity of the process, against stiff opposition from Democrats, who howled that having to prove one’s identity in order to vote disenfranchises the undocumented.

The new law is designed so that the undocumented voter casts a provisional ballot which is only counted if the voter validates their identity after the fact.

Here’s what the Washington Post had to say about the new legislation…

Studies have shown that voters who lack identification tend to be disproportionately elderly, young, poor and black. That means the legislation was blatantly anti-democratic as well as anti-Democratic.

I just love the construct, “Studies have shown….”  Studies performed by whom, exactly?  By the NAACP?  Think Progress?  People for the American Way?  Organizing for America?

One can’t buy Sudafed, fill a prescription, cash a check, buy liquour or smokes, travel by air, or perform as a functioning adult without identification. 

Another Democrat argument in Virginia has been that there is no evidence of voter fraud in Virginia.

Not so fast. There IS evidence and prosecutions are taking place.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch’s lead story today is about arrests being made for voter fraud committed in the 2008 election.

As Virginia legislators hotly debated a voter ID bill that narrowly passed the General Assembly, many were unaware of a state police investigation that, so far, has resulted in charges against 38 people statewide for voter fraud. Warrants have been obtained for a 39th person who can’t be located.

A majority of those cases already have resulted in convictions, and 26 additional cases are still being actively investigated nearly 3½ years after the state Board of Elections forwarded more than 400 voter and election fraud allegations from 62 cities and counties to Virginia State Police for individual investigation.

 

 

So Democrats can claim disenfranchisement, but we now have evidence that you and I were ACTUALLY disenfranchised as a direct result of Democrat incalcitrance, calculation and connivance.

The RTD story focuses on convicted felons voting without having had their voting rights restored, as required by law.

This part of the Voter Registration form was quite clear.

But aside from the felons, the old law allowed those without ID to cast regular votes after signing an affidavit affirming their identity and signing such affidavit fraudulently was a felony. Felonies are committed every hour of every day in Virginia with premeditation, when criminals weigh the probabilty and consequence of discovery and prosecution versus the gain to be made by the illegal activity.

Honestly, although I appreciate the efforts of the GA on the new Voter ID law, I feel it doesn’t go nearly far enough and here’s why and what I’d have preferred to see. You see, with the sworn affidavit it is impossible to find coordinated vote stealing operations as people are using death notices from the paper to vote unchallenged, multiple times across multiple voting precincts and their chances of getting caught are minimal. Especially in large urban areas.

I’d prefer to retain the sworn affidavit, but add to that the requirement that a photo be taken of the voter. That’s the only way to actually find the perpetrators of coordinated voter fraud and bring them to justice. I like the new law as it does put mechanisms in place to prevent fraud, but I like my idea better, where the opportunity to conduct criminal ‘business as usual’ is met with dire consequences to the perps and tied to the political party that engineered the operation.

But for now, detering their activity is sufficient.

I was disenfranchised in the 2008 election. I want it stopped.

I suspect that the Obama administration will go after Virginia’s efforts to legitimize the vote and Voter ID bills are being attacked across the nation as Democrats realize that they cannot win legitimately.

Next time you run into one of your Democrat legislators ask them why they stand for policies that disenfranchise you.

 

Misogyny in Wisconsin

Most Americans are familiar with the Union driven recall against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, but did you know that there are 4 other recall votes in that State? The Unions have successfully collected signatures to get recall elections against 3 Republican Senators, including the Majority Leader, and the Lt. Governor.

Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, just finishing up the 1st year of her term, has been the subject of vicious and demeaning attacks from the Union goons as well as from a local radio personality in Madison. John ‘Sly’ Sylvester has accused Kleefisch of performing a sexual act on all of the talk show hosts in Milwaukee, for instance. I’m sure Media Matters is preparing their attack on Sylvester as I write this.

Here’s a little sample from today’s show to give you a sense of this hateful little man.

This, after he and his callers were plotting the interruption of a Mitt Romney event scheduled for Madison tomorrow, incidentally.

Governor Walker has raised a fairly sizable war chest, but Kleefisch could really use our help. As a Tea Party favorite who defeated an establishment Republican for the nomination she doesn’t get much help from the Republican Party.

Michelle Malkin has done a great job of chronicling what is going on in the Badger state and Sarah Palin has entered the fray.

Outside of Wisconsin, most conservative activists are not even aware that she may be booted from office for simply doing her job. Kleefisch told me that on a recent fundraising swing in D.C., national GOP leaders were shocked to learn of her plight.

Kleefisch has done a great job and the Big Labor long knives are out for her. We can’t let Wisconsin be seized in this recall coup d’etat. Here’s her website if you wish to help out.

Update: Breitbart has the actual radio broadcast of the sexist attacks by Sylvester here.

 

Bill Whittle Throws Down the Gauntlet

This is his finest Afterburner yet and that’s saying something.

In ‘Merchants of Despair’ he catalogs all of the major misdeeds and malevolence of the Obama administration and at the end he speaks to you conservatives that sit on the couch on election day.

How do we find these bellyaching nonpartisipants, register them to vote and get them to the polls this November? That is the challenge and the only solution to our national despair.

And of course, as I always do when I post a new Whittle video, I urge you to go to PJTV and become a subscriber.

 

Craziness in the Nation’s Capitol

It was an historic, crazy and entertaining day at the Supreme Court.  I was clicking pics on my iPhone and emailing them to Bryan Preston over at PJ Media throughout the Americans for Prosperity rally and those can be seen here.

I’m going to tease you a bit with more pics from the AFP rally, but I’ve got lots of video to sort through from being amongst the Obamaggots at the Supreme Court itself, which was a few blocks away from the AFP rally. 

It will take some time to mash up all the video I took and I hope to provide something tonight, or at least get it mostly done tonight and it’ll show up tomorrow.  (I’m one guy here.  Gimme a break.)

Let’s just say that early today, when we were at the Supreme Court most of the participants appeared to be college age kids looking for a party and when pressed they weren’t very informed.  But they certainly dance and chant as instructed by their ‘minders’.  Lots of energy, too.

But there numbers were smallish, even though they were provided signage and breakfast by NOW, SEIU, Planned Parenthood and others.  McMartin may have a great scoop about payments being made to participants, but he had to go to his daughter’s birthday party tonight, so stay tuned for that.

We outnumbered the ObamACORNs decisively today.  At least 5 to 1.

Enjoy these pics whilst I have some dinner and then get to work. 

Let’s just say there’s a very, very special UTERUS waiting for you people once I get done.

And Breitbart was there….

Stay tuned for more.

 

Occupy Unmasked

This spring, Citizens United will be releasing a new movie called ‘Occupy Unmasked’, which will blow the lid off of Barack Obama’s Goon Squad, which he unleashed against CPAC over the last two days.  Working with Andrew Breitbart, Steve Bannon, and two reformed leftists, Brandon Darby and Lee Stranahan, the very heart of the Occupy/ACORN movement and it’s direct ties to this thug president will be exposed to the nation.

They are describing the feel of this project as a War Movie and after witnessing what happened at CPAC I think they’re spot on.

Watch the trailer and discussion.

Part One

Part Two

These are very dangerous and evil people.  They disrupted CPAC several times like good little totalitarians, unsuccessfully trying to stifle our 1st amendment rights.

The campaign to re-elect this president will be one of the most violent, if not the most violent, in American history.  Know your enemy.

P.S.  I will sift through the rest of my videos to find and put up how the ACORN/Occupy movement is organized into teams as described by Brandon Darby.  The anarchist left has been organizing for decades, which sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s true.  We conservatives are woefully unprepared and somewhat ignorant about what is headed our way.  Obama and his anarchist, leftist buddies are a threat to the Republic.

 

 

What am I to believe? The Chatter about an Improving Economy or my Lyin’ Eyes?

It is being spoken and respoken.  The Economy is in recovery.

For many years I commuted in and out of Richmond, VA’s far West End, but for economic reasons my Florida company decided that it would be best to close down our little office and have us work from home.  And I thank my lucky stars that I still have a job and a company that is reasonably solvent due to severe layoffs and belt tightening, even if it is in a dying industry.

But because my Internet provider had a malfunction, I temporarily lost Internet access today and had to find somewhere in town to log on to do my job. 

But that’s not the story.  Well, the layoffs and belt tightening, the austerity are PART of the story, but let’s move on.

When I left for home today at my old commute timeI was shocked at the light volume of traffic. 

When Circuit City corporate was here, this commute was extremely heavy and it took 5 or more traffic light cycles to make a left from Cox Rd. northbound onto Nuckols Rd., but then Circuit City died in Feb. 2009 and the traffic lessened considerably. 

Our office closed about 2 years ago, but still, it was a 3 traffic light cycle to get through that intersection.

Today, on a Monday in non-vacation season, it took only 1 light cycle and the turn lane wasn’t even half way filled.

There just weren’t that many commuters anymore. 

OK.  Maybe I was just lucky.  It was peculiar.  I was prepared for the usual vehicular combat from the days of old and I found myself with no competition to speak of.

Are other companies becoming more enlightened and allowing more and more of us to work from home thereby lessening the traffic flow? 

I’m thinking not. 

These are the everyday things that both distress me AND give me comfort that in spite of the spin from the White House and Clint Eastwood and the Obamasseuses from NBC et al.  You can’t escape the fact that the economy simply sucks and everyday people can’t help but notice the closing stores, the defunct retail chains, and the lessening job opportunities.  Properties, both residential and commercial are becoming increasingly vacant.  Prices for energy, food, and essentials are sky rocketing.

Couple all of this empirical evidence with all the people you know personally that have been devastated and it’s a pretty damning picture that’s hard to ignore and all the spin in the world can’t convince a recent victim of a business failure that the president and the Democrats have done them anything but harm.

This is Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.

You know what to do come November.
