Buying Immigrant Votes for Democrats

Obama Admin Using Taxpayer Dollars to Buy Immigrant Votes for Democrats

The Obama administration continues to devote taxpayer dollars to register new immigrant voters (i.e., Democratic voters) in time for the November election. After spending $19 million early this year on the registration efforts, the administration has dedicated another $10 million this month. Read more of this post

Obama praises Ho Chi Minh

Vietnamese Dictator Responsible for Torture of American POWs

On 25 July, Barack Obama met with the current dictator running Vietnam. During a statement, though, Barack Obama issued praise for Ho Chi Minh, who lead the North Vietnamese against the United States and was responsible for the torturing of American POWs, including the late George Day and Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

Voter-ID Myth Crashes

Enough non-citizens vote to decide close elections, a new study shows. Guess which party they favor? Democrats want everyone to vote: old, young, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, citizen, non-citizen. Wait, what was that last one again? We’ll get to that.
Voter-ID laws, passed by thirty states so far, are efforts by legislatures to ensure the integrity of votes. Being asked to show a photo ID can diminish several kinds of fraud, including impersonation, duplicate registrations in different jurisdictions, and voting by ineligible people including felons and non-citizens.
The Democrats have made a number of arguments against voter-ID laws. They argue a) that the problem of voter impersonation or in-person voter fraud is nonexistent; b) that black and poor voters are more likely than others to lack a valid ID; and c) that Republicans are attempting to “suppress” the votes of Democratic constituencies in a bid to revive Jim Crow.
To believe a), you must assume that Americans, who engage in widespread tax evasion (an estimated $2 trillion in income goes unreported), insurance fraud (an estimated $80 billion dollar’s worth in 2006), identity theft (15 million victims annually), and thousands of other deceptions and crimes large and small are perfect angels when they step into the voting booth. Vote fraud simply “doesn’t exist,” pronounced Attorney General Eric Holder.
It’s extremely difficult to track vote fraud. Most states put only half-hearted efforts into purging their voter-registration rolls of the dead or those who’ve moved out of state. Prosecutions for vote fraud are rare. But prosecutions for perjury are rare, too — and not because it “doesn’t exist.” Earlier this year, the Virginia Voters Alliance found that more than 44,000 people were simultaneously registered to vote in Maryland and Virginia. Catherine Englebrecht’s True the Vote found some 6.9 million overlapping voter registrations in the 28 states they examined. For those unburdened by conscience who live close to the border, it’s more than possible to vote early and often.
Being registered in more than one jurisdiction doesn’t prove that you committed fraud, only that you’ve arranged things to permit it or that you’ve overlooked, perhaps by absent-mindedness, this detail of good citizenship. But persuasive evidence that vote fraud is both real and consequential has appeared. A new academic paper published in the journal Electoral Studies provides evidence of voting by non-citizens that directly contradicts the Democrats’ “nothing to see here” mantra. Under the neutral headline “Do Non-Citizens Vote in U.S. Elections?” three professors from Virginia universities answer in the affirmative. Using an enormous database of voters nationwide (32,800 from 2008, and 55,400 in 2012), the authors find that about one-quarter of the non-citizens who participated in the survey were registered to vote.
Studying survey responses, the authors judge that non-citizen voters tend to favor Democratic candidates by large margins.
In many states, their participation wouldn’t be large enough to make a difference, but in North Carolina in 2008, the authors calculate, non-citizens may well have tipped the state into Obama’s column. “So what?” you may say. Even if John McCain had won that state, it wouldn’t have changed the outcome of the national election. True, but remember the presidential race in 2000? Remember “hanging chad” Florida?
Several House seats, and one very significant Senate seat, were probably won by Democrats on the strength of illegal votes. In 2008, the authors note, Senator Al Franken won by just 312 votes in Minnesota. That seat was the sixtieth vote to give Democrats a filibuster-proof supermajority to pass major legislation such as Obamacare. “[Voting] participation by just 0.65 percent of non-citizens in Minnesota is sufficient to account for the entirety of Franken’s margin,” the authors write. “Our best guess is that nearly ten times as many voted.”
Voter-ID laws will not prevent non-citizens from voting. Green-card holders and even illegal aliens get driver’s licenses. But that’s not an argument against voter ID. It’s an argument for issuing driver’s licenses that specify non-citizenship.
As for blacks being “targeted” by voter-ID laws, a study by Reuters found almost no difference (2 versus 3 percent) in the number of white and black voters who lacked ID.
Voting is a semi-sacred act of civic religion. Trust that only those eligible are determining our future as a nation is the foundation of civic peace. Voter-ID laws should be just one part of ensuring voter integrity. When Democrats resist those measures, it only feeds suspicion that they’re trying to steal elections.

Obamas not lawyers anymore

What is there about Democrat politicians and their seeming aversion to the practice of law? Bill Clinton was disbarred for committing perjury, Al Gore flunked out of Vanderbilt Law School, Teddy Kennedy was expelled from Harvard for cheating, and now, it appears that Barack and Michelle Obama have lost their Illinois law licenses.

The Case of Obamas Missing Pants

There isn’t much enthusiasm for Obama’s plan for Syria. A lot of the Senate would like Obama to go bigger. A lot of the House would like Obama to just go.
Even the experts have trouble explaining how and why the attacks will do any good. The debate has congealed down to credibility.
The only real argument in favor of hitting Syria is Read more of this post

Why Western intervention in Syria will leave chaos

Syria’s civil war is not America’s problem. Syria is surrounded by Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and other Arab nations with large standing armies and advanced military equipment. Their cowardice in acting to stop a war on their doorstep should give us pause for thought. Why will they not act, but we must?
Why is American gullibility for war so strong that countries such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Israel can dispense of their moral duties to the American taxpayer? Read more of this post

Obama Family Supports Terrorists

The Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF) was established in 2008 by Abon’go Malik Obama, the half-brother of U.S. President Barack Obama. Abon’go, a Kenyan-born Muslim with twelve wives, created the foundation in memory of his (and President Obama’s) biological father, Barack H. Obama (1936-82) of Nyan’goma Kogelo village in Kenya. For details about Abon’go Malik Obama’s ties to radical Islamists, terrorists, and the late Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi see footnote #1 below.[1] Read more of this post

Obama orders: Scrap doctor–patient privacy, blame guns?

President Barack Obama signed 23 executive orders and launched a campaign to force Congress to renew the ban on so-called “assault weapons” and standard capacity ammunition magazines, igniting what will certainly be a showdown with the firearms community. Read more of this post

ORF in heißer Gesellschaft

Seit Alexander Wrabetz die Zügel des ORF in die Hände gelegt erhielt, bemüht sich der ORF (Oesterreichischer Rundfunk Fernsehen), die politische Agenda seiner Auftraggeber zu erfüllen. Die da lautet: so weit links wie möglich, so penetrant wie möglich. Ein Hinausschießen über die zumutbare Grenze ist nicht unüblich, weil der blinde Erfüllungswahn Grenzen nicht mehr wahrnimmt.
