Meet the Democrats Senate candidate replacement in Montana!

How many times were we as Tea Party folks tarred and feathered for our “poor choices” in candidates these last elections, especially in 2012? If anyone thought that the dud candidate who might have been a “witch” candidate from Delaware was a bust, try this one. Something for a feel good Friday. This is in Montana of all places.

Montana Democrats are banking on a long-shot liberal Senate candidate to replace the disgraced John Walsh, but their choice might be too radical even for the increasingly extreme party.

Democrats are hoping that Montana state representative Amanda Curtis will be the next Elizabeth Warren: an outspoken and unapologetic liberal who can fire up the base and raise big bucks from like-minded benefactors.

A self-described “punktuator” who has been seen sporting a mohawk and studded denim jacket with the iconic anarchist “A,” Curtis is certainly distinct from most Montana politicians.

Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.), the state’s incumbent senator, is the upper chamber’s only active farmer. Curtis’ Republican opponent, Steve Daines, is a successful businessman. Walsh is a career Army officer.

Curtis, by contrast, is a teacher and an activist. She is an outspoken supporter of organized labor, and has endorsed some of its most radical historical leaders.

In 2008, Curtis penned two articles for the monthly newspaper of the Industrial Workers of the World, a far-left labor group.

One of the pieces, which reported on IWW recruiting activities at a Montana folk music festival, quoted “IWW member Kevin Curtis,” who is Ms. Curtis’ husband (that fact was not disclosed in the article).

Mr. Curtis is the Butte delegate for IWW’s Montana affiliate, the Two Rivers General Membership Branch.

According to that group’s website, it is “working to organize the people of Montana into the One Big Union to end wage slavery and eventually end the capitalist system.”

Is it Daytime or Nighttime in America?

A reminder of where we were once upon a time. Ronald Reagan, always optimistic  and hopeful. Then Mark Levin’s take on the ad with an Obama spin. “It’s nighttime in America”. One has to wonder why Obama even ran for office in 2012 as he appears so disinterested.

It’s Nighttime in America

 

MARK LEVIN: “It’s nighttime in America. Just think where we were four short years ago. Today, we have 15% actual unemployment, foreclosures are at a historic high, gasoline is 70% higher than before and the debt is over $15 trillion. It’s nighttime in America. Today, Americans are divided race, class warfare replaces capitalism and the Constitution is all but ignored. It’s nighttime in America.”

Cochran stiffed Black Reverend of money after delivering Black votes

As if the nasty election in Mississippi couldn’t get more disgusting.  We can only hope this can be traced back to Cochran himself so the old fool can be removed. Well, old fool is not the operative word. It was all that we hate about the GOP establishment that brought us this outcome. Thanks Karl Rove. We as well have McRino McCain to thank too. By the way,McDaniel as of Friday had refused to concede, but Cochran appears to have narrowly prevailed

It would seem that laws were broken here, too. At the direction of the Cochran campaign, Reverend Fielder went “door to door, different places, mostly impoverished neighborhoods, to the housing authorities and stuff like that,” telling fellow blacks that McDaniel was a racist and promising them $15 per vote. “They sold me on the fact that he was a racist and that the right thing to do was to keep him out of office,” Fielder says.Democrat Reverend Stevie Fielder says he delivered hundreds or thousands to the polls last week and was told to pay $15 to each voter.

Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign.

A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi.

Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative that Chris McDaniel was a racist.

It is illegal under several provisions of Mississippi law and federal law for campaign officials to bribe voters with cash and punishable up to five years in jail. (MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c))

Weasel Zippers: McRINO Praises Cochran Campaign’s Really excellent use of Race Baiting…

“Obviously, I claim credit for it, but, actually, the reason why he won was that he had a really excellent get-out-the-vote campaign,” McCain told The Arizona Republic. “There are some people who are complaining that African-American voters voted. I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.” [...]

“The key to it is you’d better pay attention, you’d better work hard, you’d better organize,” McCain said. “And you’d better understand that there is a strong anti-Washington/anti-incumbency sentiment out there, which is justified, and you’ve got your work cut out for you. If I run again, I know what I’m going to be up against and I know that it’s going to be a long, hard slog. But I enjoy campaigning. I love it. And I love traveling around the state.” (Ed: You bet your bibi John. We will be gunning for your seat. You betcha.)

Microsoft’s Allen , Foreign Scytl election software, and Obama -what could go wrong?

In what has to be one of the most troubling pieces of news, we learn that Scytl is on the move in taking control of many world-wide elections as well as increasing in U.S. elections via electronic means. Now Microsoft’s Paul Allen has chipped into the pot. Here is the update from earlier posts you might want to check out. First the back story.

Foreign company owns U.S. election software-UPDATE

“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama.The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature titled “Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm.” The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States. Drudge reports that the  best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.

UPDATE:Save American Foundation:

SCYTL, the global leader in secure electronic voting technologies, announced today the acquisition of 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Why is a software company based in Barcelona Spain(SCYTL)  now in charge of counting our votes in the upcoming General Election on November 6th.  Did the Federal Elections Commission approve of this ?  (FEC) Did the Congress of the United States approve of this ?

The firm already provides balloting for overseas U.S. military and civilian voting in nine states along with elections technologies in several districts

With the purchase of SOE Software, meanwhile, SCYTL has increased its involvement in the U.S. elections process. SOE Software boasts a strong U.S. presence, providing results in over 900 jurisdictions.

In 2009, SCYTL formally registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (AEC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program.

Project Vote noted that in 2008, the Florida Department of State commissioned a review of SCYTL’s remote voting software and concluded, in part, that:

  • The system is vulnerable to attack from insiders.
  • In a worst case scenario, the software could lead to (1) voters being unable to cast votes; (2) an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters; and (3) possible disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by individual voters.
  • The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.

Check out Hacked D.C. election test site researcher testifies easy to do

University of Michigan professor who with his students hacked a prototype D.C. voting website and had it play the school’s fight song said today it will be decades, if ever, before voting can be performed safely over the Internet.

J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor, has been participating in a test of Washington’s new “Digital Vote By Mail” system, which was supposed to allow some 900 D.C. overseas voters submit ballots over the Internet.

During the test, which began last week, not only was Halderman’s group able to get the site to play the fight song, they also changed cast votes to “evil science fiction robots” and gained access to video cameras monitoring a board of elections data center.

Halderman’s hack prompted election officials to take down the system for several days, but it went back up on Tuesday. Halderman said that on Thursday his group changed the password to part of the system to “InternetVotingIsDangerous!” and locked officials out. The test of the system was supposed to end today.

Now back to the latest news:

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, a supporter of President Obama, is investing $40 million in Scytl, the Spain-based firm that in January 2012 acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Allen made the investment via his Vulcan Capital, the investment management firm that oversees his multi-billion dollar portfolio.

Abhishek Agrawal, Vulcan Capital’s managing director, told the Wall Street Journal’s blog he expects countries to eventually become comfortable with digital-only elections.

“This is a very powerful global trend,” Agrawal added. “There is a pathway toward gradual modernization.”

Another of Allen’s charitable groups, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, donated a total of $250,000 to the immigration-reform advocacy group Centro de la Raza.

The same foundation provided $450,000 to the Urban Institute.

The supposedly “nonpartisan” Urban Institute’s employees have a record of donating nearly 100 percent of their political contributions to Democrats. Officially, the Urban Institute advocates for socialized medicine, carbon taxes and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Scytl, meanwhile, is advancing worldwide. WND reported yesterday an entire municipality in Canada will utilize online-only voting in the next election, with all balloting to be run via Scytl.

WND reported in 2012 that Scytl announced the successful implementation of technology that allows ballots to be cast using Google and Apple smartphones and tablet computers

Obamacare and Belarus – no software companies in America can write code?

Considering that America is at the forefront of software development and websites, it was hard to get past the thought that a half a billion dollars had to be given to a Canadian firm to write the Obamacare website. So let us just pass on commenting on that debacle. Now we learn that one of Putin’s satellite states, Belarus, played a hand in writing the software code. Why are there not demonstrations in the streets of America? Are we nothing but sheep? Don’t answer, I already know. The march to the camps continues. This reminds me of an earlier post: Foreign company owns U.S. election software-UPDATE January 19, 2012 — bunkerville. Soros owns a major stake in Scytl. The servers are located in Spain. What could go wrong?

“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama. Drudge reports that the  best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.

In 2009, SCYTL formally registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (AEC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program.

  • The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.

Now back to the story:

U.S. intelligence agencies last week urged the Obama administration to check its new healthcare network for malicious software after learning that developers linked to the Belarus government helped produce the website, raising fresh concerns that private data posted by millions of Americans will be compromised.

The intelligence agencies notified the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency in charge of the Healthcare.gov network, about their concerns last week. Specifically, officials warned that programmers in Belarus, a former Soviet republic closely allied with Russia, were suspected of inserting malicious code that could be used for cyber attacks, according to U.S. officials familiar with the concerns.

The software links the millions of Americans who signed up for Obamacare to the federal government and more than 300 medical institutions and healthcare providers.

“The U.S. Affordable Care Act software was written in part in Belarus by software developers under state control, and that makes the software a potential target for cyber attacks,” one official said.

Supreme Court Proof of Citizenship Voter Registration Law Struck Down

Maggie’s Notebook brings us this: Arizona Proof of Citizenship Voter Registration Law Struck Down at Supreme Court – Thomas, Alito Dissent. Wander over for her thoughts on the matter. (Two posts today).

Arizona’s voter registration law (Proposition 200) was struck down by the Supreme Court today with Justices Thomas and Alito dissenting. The law required showing proof of citizenship at the time of registering:

U.S. Supreme Court

U.S. Supreme Court

In the majority opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia said the state law was preempted by language in the federal statute saying that states must “accept and use” a federal registration form.

The state law ordered officials to reject the form if there was no accompanying proof of citizenship. Source: Reuters

Alabama, Georgia and Kansas have similar laws and joined Arizona’s case.

Look at this from Justice Sotomayor:

At an oral argument in March, Thomas Horne, a lawyer for Arizona, told the justices that the state was within its rights to ask for additional information beyond the simple federal form.

“It’s extremely inadequate,” Horne said. “It’s essentially an honor system. It does not do the job.”

“Well,” answered Justice Sonia Sotomayor, “that’s what the federal system decided was enough.” Source: USNews-NBC

Just wait until we get 30 million more “immigrants” on the non-books. Washington State does not even have polling locations. All is done by mail. What with same day registration, some states voting for over a month, no standards whatsoever, but now we must “accept and use” a federal registration form? Even Banana Republics require I.D.

Democrats’ 2016 Contenders Are Betting on Gun Control

Sometimes when the night seems the darkest, a ray of light may be on the horizon. Obama’s crowd is getting so insulated, so full of themselves, that this gun control issue may be a gift to us. As we await to hear the numerous Executive Orders that are to be bestowed upon us, I came across this article. Indeed, if ever there was an issue that will rally the troops around the flag, this is it. So let them have at it. And let these new Marxist’s to be, run on taking our guns and ammo. 2016 will be a very good year. 2014 as well. Rahm Emanuel warned about it. But our arrogant petty little man thinks he can have his way. With Andrew Cuomo and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley going full tilt on guns, they misjudge the mood across the vast reaches of middle America. You might want to check out my previous post to see what Rand Paul has to say about our “King”.

The New Republic

The gun lobby is just too strong, and the popular resistance to major new firearms restrictions just too ingrained, for reform to happen. At the same time, though, several high-profile Democrats who’ve been mentioned as 2016 presidential contenders are betting on a different read of the situation. As they see it, Newtown has truly changed things, making it not just politically feasible to broach new constraints, but perhaps even politically imperative.

If one needs further proof that the landscape has shifted and become far more complex, consider Rahm Emanuel, who as much as any other leading Democratic warned the party away from the gun control issue after 2000. He proudly recruited pro-gun rights House candidates in 2006, and strongly discouraged Attorney General Eric Holder and others in the Obama administration from pressing gun control in the president’s firm term (“shut the fuck up” on the issue, he reportedly declared).

..There was precious little persuasion of that sort from Emanuel and others in recent years — in fact, the opposite. Now, it’s coming from the likes of Cuomo, O’Malley, and Hickenlooper — none of them political dummies or lost-cause radicals. For once, there actually is a national conversation..
