Follow up to the Illinois Military NON-Voting Act…

October 26, 2010

Foxnews has just published a story about the settlement reached between Illinois (you know, the place the One is from) and the Department of Justice (you know the Department that the One is in charge of).

You will be happy, NOT, to know that:

“The Justice Department hammered out the court agreement Friday addressing the failure of 35 Illinois counties to send military and overseas absentee ballots 45 days before the election — a requirement of the MOVE Act. The agreement gave voters from six of those counties a few extra days to send back their ballots but did not specifically address the other 29 counties.”

Apparently, military votes are unimportant to the powers that be. Another quote from the article:

“”It’s just the wrong message to send,” Eversole said.”

The message I get from the actions of the NON-Justice Department is this.  It is OK if you BREAK the LAWS, so long as you break them the way WE want them broken.  The LAWS are only for our opponents to abide.  Justice is NOT blind!!

If this is OK for you, just move along, nothing more to see here.  If this is NOT ok, contact YOUR representatives, NOW.  Do it, if you do not, you have no more reasons to complain about the situation.

Foreign Contributions???

October 22, 2010

Illegal Aliens Canvass for Votes in Washington State”.  The following is the lead sentence in the article.

“When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters’ doors, she’s not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally.”

Just one Question.  Does this count as one of those Foreign Contributions that The One, “The Sheriff” Biden and others on the left were talking about??

Hey Holder.  DO YOUR JOB!!

Military ballots in Illinois…

October 14, 2010

A continuation from the post yesterday.

Apparently Illinois (the home state of The One), may not count overseas military ballots either.  Read the article by WLS in Chicago.  If you do not want to read the article I have broken out some key points, as follows:

     1.  Illinois was required (by law) to have all of its absentee ballots mailed by September 18,

     2.  It is OCTOBER 14 (that is almost 1 full month from September 18) and the Department of Justice, read Eric Holder, is still “investigating” whether or NOT Illinois has mailed the ballots.

Are you telling me that it takes a MONTH to know if someone has mailed something??  Seriously??  Someone needs to be fired from their JOB!!!  Probably more than one someone.  At a minimum.  We need to have an Independent Investigator look into these situations, because to me it is looking more and more CRIMINAL.  These people are making our election system FAIL.  At best, these people are incompetent and deserve to be fired.  If you tell me they are competent, then the only other explanation is that they are breaking laws at will.  If that is the case I hear that there is an empty prison in Illinois that needs some residents.

Oh, and did you know Illinois is ANOTHER Democrat controlled corrupt state!!  Where Obama got his start.

UPDATE:  It appears that the problem in Illinois is the result of actions by an “active democrat” that has a HISTORY of trying to supress votes.  More from Big Government.

Military Ballots in New York…

October 13, 2010

The Department of Justice, read Eric Holder, has FINALLY brought suit against New York State concerning the BOARD of Elections complete and utter FAILURE to mail ballots to overseas Military personnel and their families.  A little background first:

     1.  The 2009 MOVE act requires that ballots be sent so that 45 days remain from the date sent to the election.

     2.  New York asked for an extension, because their primaries were held 4 days prior to the 45 day deadline.  I understand the difficulty in determining who is on the ballot, printing and mailing ballots in 4 days, so I am not complaining about the extension.

     3.  New York was given until October 1 to mail the ballots.

     4.  The Department of Justice, read Eric Holder, brought suit on OCTOBER 12.

What happened in the ELEVEN days between October 1st and October 12th??? 

Someone needs to serve a FOIA request for all communications inside the White House, the DOJ, and between these entities and anyone else concerning this topic.  Did the DOJ DELAY the lawsuit, so as to make it appear that they are attempting to do their jobs, but making it so that the ballots (or a portion of) will not be able to be counted??  Why was a suit not initiated on October 2nd?? 

Not only does the New York Board of Elections appear incompetent, at best, or malicious/criminal, at worst, but it appears that the DOJ is colluding in the farce.  Are you telling me that the DOJ needed 11 days to get the paperwork in order??  This is part of the same administration that needed LESS than 3 days to read and comprehend a 2,000+ page fiasco called ObamaCare.

Please tell me that someone in the Legislative Branch will be conducting an investigation into whether this is another attempt to STEAL an election!!!

For more information about the situation see Foxnews or the New York Times.

UPDATE: It appears that New York is only one of a FEW states that are having problems with letting our Military personnel overseas to vote.  Foxnews has another article concerning (mainly) New Mexico.  Funny, these states are run by Democrats.

Foreign Contributions???

October 11, 2010

Here is an article from Foxnews and here is a similar article from the Wall Street Journal, that detail the One’s accusations about Foreign Donors influencing american politics.  This is what is making Americans SICK of the political parties in Washington DC.  Seriously, did The Anointed One just accuse the opposing party of using Foreign Money for the political process in the United States of America?  I just want to make sure I am hearing Him correctly.

The following is a quote from the Foxnews article referenced above:

The Chamber of Commerce accusation apparently stemmed from a report last week by the Center for American Progress-affiliated Think Progress. The report claimed the Chamber was generating hundreds of thousands of dollars in foreign money every year and questioned whether those funds were going toward its multimillion-dollar political operations.  But the Chamber adamantly denies this, saying foreign money is separated from its U.S. political activity. The Chamber said in a statement Sunday that the DNC ad is “ridiculous and false.” Rove also said the White House cannot back up its accusation. Asked about the charge, Axelrod put the onus on groups like the Chamber of Commerce to prove foreign money is not influencing the election. “No one knows where the money’s coming from,” he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “Why not simply disclose where this money is from and then all these questions will be answered?”  (my emphasis)

I am simply amazed that the President (through Axelrod) can honestly accuse anyone else of raising foreign donations, when it has been documented that this is what HE did during HIS presidential campaign.  If anyone is wondering here is an article from the Washington Post in 2008, detailing some of HIS fundraising.  To use Axelrods words, “I put the onus on The President to PROVE that foreign money did NOT influence his campaign, why not simply disclose where his donations came from!”

Then I read the article from the Wall Street Journal, the following is a quote:

That didn’t stop President Obama from raising the issue in a Maryland speech last week, saying that “groups that receive foreign money are spending huge sums to influence American elections.” Within hours of the ThinkProgress report, the bully boys at MoveOn.org asked the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation of the Chamber. In a letter to the Federal Election Commission, Minnesota Senator Al Franken expressed his profound concern that “foreign corporations are indirectly spending significant sums to influence American elections through third-party groups.”

Which got me thinking.  I think this is a great conversation.  I think that we need to be sure that NO foreign funds are being used by ANYONE in the political arena.  I think that we need more transparency concerning political donations and their origins.  I hope that we can all agree, that foreign donations to our political process may NOT have America’s best interests in mind. 

To that end I would ask that MoveOn.org use their influence and join me, and ask the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation of the AFL-CIO union, its political fundraising (most come from dues paying members), and its influence in past elections.  As we all KNOW, there are some members of the AFL-CIO that are not in the USA legally.  By definition, this means that THEY are foreign.  Since the are paying UNION DUES, and these dues are commingled with all dues, it is from these dues that the AFL-CIO is making political donations to current and past races.  We can now see that the AFL-CIO IS using FOREIGN money to INFLUENCE american politics.  I feel that the AFL-CIO, and all other unions, need to document their members status and disclose the information, and what political causes are supported by their foreign money.
