Let’s fix our problems!

Something for us to think about as we head into next week’s election.

It’s our future, lets fix our problem!

 

Looking for an honest election? Look again. Ballot stuffing in AZ

Think we will have an honest election? Third world countries do better than we do. Most require identification. For us, not so much yet. So we have here  a video of a fellow stuffing the ballot box. Of course, it is someone from the Progressive side of the aisle. But this harkens back to an April post. Microsoft’s Allen , Foreign Scytl election software, and Obama -what could go wrong? April 9, 2014

“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.

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. Read More

Now for the latest insult to our process:

An Arizona county party official said he saw a man stuffing “hundreds” of ballots into the ballot box and later told a local news outlet the entire incident was caught on surveillance video.“A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona 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,” said A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party.

“America used to be a nation of laws where one person had one vote,” LaFaro said, the Daily Independent reported. ”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 Senate Russell Pearce.” The group is ”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.”

GOP leads in eight races for Democrat-held Senate seats

Hot Air has a great post covering the Senate races and worthy of a full read for those needing a bit of good news. Anyone ever hear of Jim Oberweis? Looks like he is closing the gap on Dick Durbin. Now that would be a coup. Even to cause Dick a sweat is worthy of a report. Video at end of post on the unbelieving media. Other reports out there indicate additional House seats should be picked off. Here we go.

Hot Air was leaked an advance copy of last week’s much-anticipated Politico/GWU Battleground poll, which was packed with more than a few hopeful morsels for conservatives. This weekend’s polling volley applies those national trends to roughly a dozen contests across the 2014 Senate landscape — the contours of which are outlined here.  An overview of the fresh data:

Republicans remain poised to net three additional open seats with relative ease, holding commanding leads in Montana (16 points), South Dakota (14 points) and West Virginia(24 points) — where Shelley Moore Capito is on the brink of becoming the state’s first Republican Senator since the 1950′s, and its first-ever female Senator of any party.  The two most closely-watched Senate races for GOP-controlled seats appear to be inching toward the “safe” category for Republicans.  David Perdue leads Michelle Nunn by six points in Georgia, while Mitch McConnell is ahead of Alison Lundergan Grimes (47/42) in Kentucky.  NBC’s new poll shows McConnell opening up an eight-point lead in the race; CNN’s recent poll gave the Senate Republican Leader a four-point edge. Big picture, Republicans appear favored — for now — to retain all of the seats they currently control; they’re also leading, at least nominally, in eight contests for Democrat-held seats.  Plus, they’re very competitive in at least three others.  The GOP needs to net six seats to regain control of Congress’ upper chamber in November.  If the current polling snapshot were to hold up (a big if, of course), Harry Reid would be facing a demotion.

Here we go with a clip of the Durbin – Oberweis race

Natasha Korecki is joined by Mary Mitchell, Madeleine Doubek and Dave McKinney to discuss Jim Oberweis closing the gap on Dick Durbin and the contrast of Bruce Rauner’s $140,000 wine club and Pat Quinn living on $79 for a week.

 

Candidate remarks that are most remarkable!

Here is something on the lighter side for a Saturday. A couple of candidate’s remarks and ads that, well, are interesting to say the least. Here we go.

The Montana Senate race has been perhaps the most interesting contest thus far in the 2014 Senate election cycle. Original nominee, and sitting interim Senator, John Walsh was busted for plagiarism on a 14 page (!) Master’s thesis*. Sensing that this might be a liability on the campaign trail, he was replaced with single term Montana State Representative Amanda Curtis. She’s already come under fire for some rather unfortunate statements from her days as a Blogger.

There are a lot of things Ms. Curtis doesn’t seem to know, such as her positions on major issues.  From a CNN profile:  “When asked her position on the situation in Iraq, Curtis told CNN, ‘Give me a little more time.’ On the border crisis, ‘I’ll need more time, you know only 11 days ago I was painting my storm windows.’”  What she does know is that she’s against “the one percent” and hates Paul Ryan’s budget.

…she’s the kind of Leftist who has no problem with Revolutionary Socialism, even if it means roughing a few people up and destroying some property along the way, and at one point, her Facebook profile photo was of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, the head of the Communist Party USA and recipient of a state funeral from the Soviet Union.

In case you haven’t caught this one from Amanda, I will throw it in as well. We might just catch this Senate seat!

I have added A Day at the Races to my blog located at the upper right hand corner called Looking Ahead 2014. They carry posts on some of the little covered races as well as some of the major ones. I caught this one from them. Wander over for the full read.

Out of Africa, Into Arkansas

About Ebola: it’s not just Republicans playing that card.

In Arkansas’ increasingly contentious Senate race, Democratic incumbent Pryor’s campaign is out with a new tv spot tying his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, to the West African scourge.

Pryor’s not accusing Cotton of carrying the disease, per se. Actually, it’s more like being an enabler — for being one of 29 House members in January 2013 to vote against HR 307, aka “The Pandemic And All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act” (actually Cotton voted in favor of final passage of the bill).

The Cotton campaign’s response: “Senator Pryor’s desperation is comical. In Senator Pryor’s world, he doesn’t have to take responsibility for rubber-stamping the Obama agenda over 90% of the time, but wants Arkansans to believe Tom Cotton is responsible for everything from Ebola to crabgrass and male-pattern baldness.”

Makes you wonder when and where we’ll hit bottom in this election cycle.

Here’s Pryor’s ad (no surgical mask required to watch it):

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.

Via WFB

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.)
