The simple answer is YES! Of course, you won’t get many people to admit it, in fact, liberals are going out of their way to deny or cover it up whenever it is found. It isn’t being discovered in large numbers, but that could just be because there is no real way to know how bad it really is.
Fraud Discovered Through Crime
One of the ways that voter fraud is discovered is when people commit crimes, recently it was thought that the Cascade Mall shooter in Washington might have illegally voted. We know he voted in one local election, one federal election and the recent presidential primary. But people were unsure if he had registered legally.
It turns out that even though he was born in Turkey, he was a permanent resident and could after a certain amount of time, apply for U.S. citizenship. He did do this, so he did legally vote.
But in looking at his case, it became disturbingly clear that there are zero safeguards in the voter registration process. Potential voters must attest to their citizenship when registering online or registering to vote at the Department of Licensing Office, but Washington state does not require any proof of citizenship.
So the entire election process operates on an honor system. We are hoping that one of the most cherished actions you can take as an American citizen is not being stolen by people who may have already broken the law just to be here!
Secretary of State Kim Wyman said, “We don’t have a provision in state law that allows either county elections officials or the Secretary of State’s office to verify someone’s citizenship. So, we are in this place where we want to make sure we are maintaining people’s confidence in the elections and the integrity of the process, but also that we’re giving this individual, like we would any voter, his due process. We are moving forward, and that investigation is really coming out of the investigation from the shootings.”
Wyman says while it’s impossible to determine an exact number, but she does not believe this case points to a larger issue. So we have that assurance, our rights are only being stolen by a small portion of illegal aliens…maybe, we aren’t really sure.
The penalty for voting as a non U.S. citizen can result in up to five years of prison time or a $10,000 fine, according to Secretary of State’s Office.
“The penalties are very serious. That’s why we want to make sure we are very measured, and this is why we want to make sure we are very calm and purposeful in how we move forward,” Wyman said. “The stakes are very high on both sides. You want to keep the confidence level high, but you also want to protect the voting rights of everyone.”
“Our hands are kind of tied, but make no mistake, we want to make sure that everybody has confidence that people casting ballots are eligible. This is certainly going to be a topic at next legislation.”
They want to be sure that people casting ballots are eligible (U.S. citizens), but yet they require zero proof that they are? Once again, these officials expect criminals to be honest, they just don’t get it.
Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead
Voting is apparently high on that list. A CBS4 investigation found multiple cases of dead men and women voting in Colorado for months and in some cases years after their deaths. This finding calls into question the safeguards designed to prevent such occurrences from happening.
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said, “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” after reviewing the investigations findings. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.”
“It’s not a perfect system. There are some gaps,” acknowledged Williams.
One of the most glaring cases was that of Sara Sosa in Colorado Springs. She died on Oct. 14, 2009. However, the investigation uncovered voting records that showed ballots cast for Sosa in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Her husband, Miguel, died on Sept. 26, 2008. But records were found showing that a vote was cast in his name the next year, 2009.
El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman said, “That’s illegal,” and called the investigations findings “very serious.”
“I was shocked and surprised at this,” said Broerman. “This cannot happen. We cannot have this here or anyplace in our country. Our democracy depends on it. People have spilled their blood for the values and underpinnings and beliefs of this country.”
Broerman said after their deaths, the Sosa’s remained on active voter rolls and mail ballots were still sent to their home because they did not meet the criteria to have their names deleted from eligible voter rolls.
“Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast,” concluded Broerman.
John Grosso of Denver was a father, grandfather and World War II veteran who died Dec. 13, 2004. Records show though that Grosso then voted in a 2006 primary election, two years after his death.
“I think that’s a disgrace,” said his son, John. “The man is dead. He can’t vote. Somebody is cheating.”
Administrators with the Secretary of State’s Office believe Grosso’s vote may have been an error by an election judge. But the bigger question is why Grosso and dozens of others were still listed as active voter’s months and sometimes years after their deaths?
State voting officials say they can only delete names from voting rolls if a number of precise criteria from death databases are met: names must be spelled precisely right, dates of birth must be correct and addresses must match. They say in many cases minor errors on the voter rolls or death databases leave election officials no choice but to leave dead people registered, leading to potential fraud and mistaken votes.
Out of the approximately 2 million votes cast in Colorado’s last election, 8,000 ballots were not counted when signatures did not match. The importance of finding and weeding out fraudulent votes is underlined by the 2002 election in Colorado’s 7th Congressional district. That race was decided by 121 votes out of more than 175,000 that were cast.
In Ohio in 2010, a tax measure passed by just two votes. Only 2 votes, but yet we are told that no voter fraud exists in at all or in numbers large enough to matter.
Following the investigation, the Colorado Secretary of State’s office reviewed the findings of the TV stations investigation and confirmed at least 78 dead voters showed as eligible to vote. Lynn Bartels, a spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office, said that county clerks were notified and told to immediately remove those 78 names from the voter rolls. Bartels said “It’s not clear why” those dead citizens were still being listed as eligible voters.
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said, “It’s not a perfect system. It is impossible to vote from the grave legally.”
The Dead Rise in Virginia
The FBI and local police are investigating how at least 19 dead Virginians were recently re-registered to vote in this critical swing state.
Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney Marsha Garst said that one case came to their attention after the relatives of a deceased man received a note congratulating him for registering.
“His family members were very distraught,” said Garst, who confirmed the existence of the FBI and police investigation but said that she could not provide details because of the ongoing case.
A county clerk recognized the name of Richard Allen Claybrook Sr., who had died in 2014 at age 87, because his son is a well-known local judge. She happened to recall that the judge’s father had died.
Retired Harrisonburg General District Court Judge Richard Allen Claybrook Jr. said, “He was a retired Fairfax County elementary school principal and had fought in World War II. So our family is very disgusted that they would pick his name, because he was such a law-abiding citizen devoted to public service.”
Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University, was working for a group called HarrisonburgVOTES that was trying to increase the number of registered voters in Harrisonburg to 25,000, Harrisonburg currently has about 17,000 registered voters and an expected 18,000 that are eligible to vote. Apparently Spieles has confessed to re-registering 19 deceased Virginians to vote in the 2016 election cycle.
Spieles just happens to be Democrat who, accorded to a recently deleted Facebook post, apparently recently ran for Caucus Chair of the Virginia Young Democrats. Expect him to run for congress in a few years.
HarrisonburgVOTES is a “non-partisan” voter registration organization in Harrisonburg, VA and the surrounding areas and was founded by Joseph Fitzgerald who is currently the Chairman of the Sixth Congressional District Democratic Committee in Virginia and the former Mayor of Harrisonburg.
Fitzgerald denied any knowledge of Spieles actions and said he has been fired. No word on any legal or criminal action being taken and doubtful the Justice Department will care since everyone involved is a Democrat.
Republicans in the state House of Delegates, who in recent years have supported tighter voter ID laws, held a conference call with reporters to call attention to the investigation.
House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said, “Oftentimes we hear our Democratic colleagues suggest that voter fraud doesn’t exist in Virginia, or it’s a myth. This is proof that voter fraud not only exists but is ongoing and is a threat to the integrity of our elections.”
House Minority Leader David J. Toscano (D-Charlottesville) said the case was not proof of voter fraud because no one had actually managed to cast a vote in the names of the dead.
“First of all, there was no voter fraud, they caught him,” Toscano said. “Nobody cast a vote. There’s still no evidence of that going on in the state. But there is evidence every time you turn around that the Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for citizens to vote in elections.”
Remember, this was all uncovered only because a county clerk recognized one single name in a fairly small town, there are no checks and balances in place to stop this from happening. But the Democrats like Toscano will scream voter disenfranchisement if you even suggest that we make sure voters are real live human beings and eligible to vote.
Tens of Thousands of Votes
The Christian Times has reported that election officials in Franklin County, Ohio are quite concerned over what a maintenance worker found in an old downtown Columbus warehouse earlier this week.
According to their sources, a Columbus-area electrical worker was doing a routine check of his companies wiring and electrical systems when he found approximately one dozen black, sealed ballot boxes filled with tens of thousands of Franklin County ballots.
Early voting does not begin in Ohio until October 12, so no votes could have been officially cast in the state. Which makes what is inside these boxes, even more disturbing, tens of thousands of votes for Hillary Clinton and every democrat running in the election.
This Ohio story has yet to be verified, it has however been repeated almost word for word in several online publications, so take this one with a grain of salt, but this could explain why Hillary is not campaigning or spending big money on ads in Ohio. They already had the election in the boxes, if this information is true.
What we can be sure of however, is that no matter how often the NY Times and others say there is no voter fraud, it is happening. On what scale is the unknown, but without proper checks in place, we can never know. And I think that is by design.
The countries to our North and South both require ID to vote, as do most developed countries, even India, a country with 1.2 billion people has managed to provide everyone with a voter ID, but for some reason, Democrats fight this idea every chance they get. Sure makes you think that voter fraud is more widespread than we are being told.
It is certainly nothing new to have politicians lie about things, just about everything actually, but Democrats have added a new tool to their arsenal, making the truth look absurd.
A Change in Tone
It used to be, if a campaign was caught doing something illegal, immoral or just plain shady, they would lie about their involvement, deny any knowledge of the issue or just ignore it until the news cycle forgot about it.
That is no longer the plan for the Democrats, instead they have taken to broadcasting it loud and clear while at the same time branding it as a conspiracy theory. This way, there is no danger of too many people supporting the idea, because who wants to be lumped in with the tin foil hat wearing lunatics, it is actually a brilliant strategy.
Rather than fight the allegations being held against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention, they simply say it is nothing more than fantasy from those crazy crackpots that think the moon landing was faked. This of course, along with the media collusion that was proven in the DNCLeaks, instantly kills the traction of any story that makes Hillary look bad.
While many expected this election to be extra dirty, this new tactic is actually keeping it looking clean, even if the tactics used are actually twice as dirty. Not that Hillary isn’t still spending millions on negative attack ads against Donald Trump, because she is, but by not defending as many of the hits against her and simply saying that it is the crazy people, her campaign is getting away with not having to debate these facts in the media.
How Long Can They Keep It Up?
While it has been working well so far, especially with Hillary Clinton’s health issues where her camp may have even been the ones to release the “body double” photos so they could instantly kill that story by once again saying it was the “deplorables”, those nutjobs that follow Trump, making up more crazy stories, the tactics time may be running out.
Hillary can only go to that well so many times during the debates, if her every response is “you people are crazy”, she will be the one that looks to be unstable, not Trump or his supporters. If she ever actually has a press conference that allows real journalists to ask her pointed questions rather than pre-approved ones, that tactic will fail there as well.
Hillary and the DNC have convinced more people that the Russians are trying to corrupt the American political process by hacking the DNC’s emails, than are actually looking at the corruption those emails uncovered. The FBI is now investigating Russian hackers and not the DNC even though the hacked emails proved the corruption and collusion exists.
“The DNC is the victim of a crime, an illegal cyber-attack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election,” Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile said in a statement.
“There’s one person who stands to benefit from these criminal acts, and that’s Donald Trump,” she added. “Not only has Trump embraced Putin, he publicly encouraged further Russian espionage to help his campaign.”
This was put out by the DNC to attempt to discredit the information exposed by Guccifer 2.0, even suggesting that some of the documents may have been forged. Guccifer 2.0 has publicly stated that he/she has no connection to the Russians.
It isn’t surprising that the DNC would try and create fear surrounding cyber security and hurl blame at Donald Trump and the Russian government, but is that enough to distract from the content of these emails. There is a letter that directly addressed how to handle donors who submitted “pay-to-play letters” to ensure their donations were put into the “operating amount.”
Also in the latest leak was a list of over 100,000 donations dating all the way back to 2008, including some high-profile donors who received international ambassadorships from President Barack Obama in return for their pledges to both the DNC and Obama’s Organizing for Action nonprofit.
Matthew Barzun donated more than $3.5 million to Obama and the DNC. In return, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Sweden from 2009 to 2011, worked as President Obama’s National Finance Chair during his 2012 reelection campaign, and is currently U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Julius Genachowski, was appointed the chair of the FCC for his generous donation of just under $3.5 million. Tony West paid a little over a million dollars to be appointed the Associate Attorney General on March 9, 2012, the very same day his money is recorded in DNC’s ledger. William Eacho received the Ambassadorship to Austria for raising a mere $950k for Obama, that’s a steal.
Basically, President Obama and the DNC sold government positions off to the highest bidder while Hillary watched as Secretary of State. Based on what we know of The Clinton Foundation, there is no reason to expect any difference in operating procedure should Hillary be elected.
Of course, CNN reported that “There appear to be no damaging emails in this batch.” At least when you buy CNN, they stay bought!
Just One Tactic Out of Many
Reframing the truth as the absurd is just one tactic out of the many employed by the liberal left, the others are still used daily as well. Another of the widely used tactics is to deflect their wrong doings with true or false wrong doings of the Bush or Regan Administrations. Being able to say, see, they did it too seems to be vindication for their crimes, even if it is all based on lies.
Just a few days ago, Nina Burleigh from Newsweek penned an article titled “THE GEORGE W. BUSH WHITE HOUSE ‘LOST’ 22 MILLION EMAILS”; you have to go through most of this damning article that makes the number of “lost” Clinton emails seem insignificant, before you find out that the emails were found and had simply been mislabeled.
A bit different than deleting emails, wiping the hard drive with Bleach Bit and then taking a hammer to all your Blackberry’s so that not even the FBI could retrieve info from them. But the truth is buried so far down in the article, that most will never see it, or will be so pissed off at everyone except Hillary that it won’t matter.
Ignoring facts is another popular tactic with the Hillary campaign, she continued to claim she never sent and classified emails even after the FBI had confirmed that she did. She simply ignores what the FBI publicly stated and still claims she never sent them.
Another great tactic all politicians use is good old fashioned lying, but Hillary has taken it to a new level by telling different lies to different groups and she manages to not have anyone call her out on it. She told the American public that she did not send classified emails while at the same time telling the FBI that she didn’t know that “C” meant classified.
She told us that her previous concussion is not a matter to discuss as it does not and has not impacted her work, but told the FBI that she could only work at the State Department for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received as an excuse for not properly handling classified information.
Her campaign told us that her “fainting” at the 9/11 ceremony was from pneumonia, but she hugged and kissed people at the location and went to her daughter’s apartment to rest and spend time with her granddaughter. Who would expose all those people and their granddaughter to pneumonia?
The lies upon lies pile up so high that even the truth is now absurd!
