Corrupt Democrat Machine Calls Voter ID "Racist"

“Vote early and often for Curley,” was a lyric from one of Democrat Mayor, Congressman, and Governor James Michael Curley's campaign songs I heard often while growing up a Boston-Irish-Catholic-Democrat in the 1950s. Democrat voter fraud was not only winked at, it was celebrated from the early 20th century onward. Sticking it to Yankee Republicans was a way of life when you grew up Irish in Massachusetts. Oppressed in the 19th century, the Irish ruled Boston and the state during the 20th and the spoils system became a way of life. By the time I was growing up, it was who you knew or who you were related to, and there was nothing wrong with that in the Boston-Irish-Democrat code of ethics. It’s the way things were done, and it swept the Kennedy dynasty into power during its heyday.

Kennedys are gone from the scene now. The Democrat coalition today comprises unions, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, feminists, single women, and aging Irish pols like Richard Daley, John Kerry, and Joe Biden. Election fraud committed by people in any of those groups is winked at and publicly denied by Democrats and the mainstream media, which look the other way. They don’t sing songs about it anymore the way Curley’s people did. They celebrate it privately now.
Into a similar, but Texan Democrat political arena waded small business person and political neophyte Catherine Englebrecht. Starting in their garage, she and her husband Bryan had built a small manufacturing business outside of Houston which, after two decades employed thirty people. Then she started volunteering at the polls where, according to national review.com, she became “appalled and dismayed to witness everything from administrative snafus to outright voter fraud.” She started attending local Tea Party meetings, eventually founding “True the Vote,” an organization that aimed to clean up voter fraud. Then she filed for 501.C.3 status with the IRS.
Englebrecht Manufacturing

That put her in the sights of the national Democrat political machine. “I had no real expectation or preparation for the blood sport that American politics is,” she told Nationalreviewonline, but she found out quickly. In twenty years of doing business, she and her husband Bryan never had contact with the federal government, but soon federal agents were crawling all over them like maggots. Testifying before the House Committee on Investigations in February, she said:
“In 2011, my personal and business tax returns were audited by the Internal Revenue Service, each audit going back for a number of years. In 2012, my business was subjected to inspection by OSHA, on a select occasion when neither my husband nor I were present, and though the agency wrote that it found nothing serious or significant, it still issued fines in excess of $20,000. In 2012 and again in 2013 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms conducted comprehensive audits at my place of business. Beginning in 2010, the FBI contacted my nonprofit organization on six separate occasions – wanting to cull through membership manifests in conjunction with domestic terrorism cases.”

Whew. "Not even a smidgeon of corruption"?
There are hundreds of cases like Englebrecht’s, and when the IRS scandal broke last May, President Obama called it “outrageous.” Two months later he called it a “phony scandal” and blamed Republicans for hurting the economy by focusing on it. The Obama Administration continues to stonewall investigation and its mainstream media allies continue to play down the scandal. Republicans in the House have not pressed it nearly hard enough, even though they have subpoena power with which to do so.

Allegedly Reverend Sharpton
Last week, President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder both spoke at the lavish convention put on by the allegedly Reverend Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network” (NAN). Sharpton, the FBI snitch, Anti-Semite, race-hustler, and liar, was paid a quarter million in salary by the NAN, which had no problem getting its non-profit status from the IRS in spite of owing $1.9 million in payroll taxes to the IRS and State of New York for 2006, the last year for which records were available.

In his speech, Obama actually blamed Republicans for trying to "prevent people from voting". If he was talking about dead people he would have been correct, but he wasn’t. Obama is against requiring voters to present identification at the polls, which would prevent not only dead people from voting, but also others from voting “early and often” as early Democrat shyster James Michael Curley encouraged.
Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder actually dismissed charges against the New Black Panthers for wearing paramilitary garb, waving night sticks at white voters, and threatening: “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!” One was a Democrat Party operative and credentialed poll watcher named Jerry Jackson.

That kind of poll watching was okay with Attorney General Holder, but voter identification is “racist,” as he claimed when suing the state of Texas for requiring it. James Michael Curley would be proud.

And rmember, Social Security numbers will NEVER be used for ID. I guess that means the suggestion for "Photo SS cards" is OUT. Gee, why not tattoo those numbers on ones forearms, at birth, for easy ID?

The Republican party is certain that U.S. elections are rife with voter fraud. How are they so sure of that? Apparently because Republican operatives are the source of most of it.

A variety of Republican-controlled state legislatures passed “anti-voter fraud” legislation in 2012, in what was considered by many to be a blatant attempt to disenfranchise traditional Democratic constituencies such as minorities and college students. These measures typically centered around enhanced ID requirements for voters.

The Minnesota Post reported that an analysis of over 2,000 cases of voter fraud revealed an “infinitesimal” rate of fraud, and that “in person” fraud of the type that is targeted by voter ID laws is “virtually non-existent.”
The irony of the big GOP push for voter ID laws seems to be that when it comes to actual voter fraud, Republicans are often the ones who are most responsible.

">>>the IRS’s foolish error, which had already been corrected even before it was reported, has turned out to be the low-level bungling that it looked like all along, not an attempt by the President to punish his political enemies, as right-wingers immediately imagined.

....later, has anything changed regarding the IRS’s non-scandal? The only significant new information that has emerged has undermined even the original notion that the IRS was systematically scrutinizing right-wing groups (though not for political reasons). It turned out that the original Inspector General’s report was issued in response to a request to determine whether the IRS had scrutinized any applications from nonprofit groups on the basis of right-wing labels. The answer was yes. What we learned in late June, however, was that the IRS had also used left-wing labels (and some apolitical labels) in its searches."

Hmmm, the ditto heads haven't been programmed to repeat that little fact...

Then there was no need for Lois Lerner to plead the 5th? Why didn't you tell her?

I've been seeing a lot of comments to the effect of "why should Lois Lerner take the Fifth if she has nothing to hide?" Ironically these comments often come from people who profess to oppose expansive government power, and from people who accept the proposition that Lerner was part of wrongdoing in the first place — in other words, that there was a government conspiracy to target people with the machinery of the IRS for holding unpopular political views. Such people do not seem to grasp how their predicate assumptions answer their own question.

You take the Fifth because the government can't be trusted. You take the Fifth because what the truth is, and what the government thinks the truth is, are two very different things. You take the Fifth because even if you didn't do anything wrong your statements can be used as building blocks in dishonest, or malicious, or politically motivated prosecutions against you. You take the Fifth because if you answer questions truthfully the government may still decide you are lying and prosecute you for lying.

Pardon me: if you accept the proposition that the government targets organizations for IRS scrutiny because of their political views, and you still say things like "why take the Fifth if you have nothing to hide", then you're either an idiot or a dishonest partisan hack.

I don't think Tom is a complete idiot, so I am going with option #2.

Republican officials, who have used hysteria about alleged voter fraud as an excuse to support measures that disproportionately block Democratic voters, are furiously trying to distance themselves from a growing number of GOP voter registration drives that either submitted false applications or threw away authentic ones.

The incidents might have been overlooked if not for the GOP's clamorous campaign to restrict registration drives, purge voter rolls, roll back early voting, and pass voter ID laws that opponents point out have the effect of depressing the vote among minorities, and the poor.

As one Southern California alt-weekly put it, it's turning into a story of "The Wolf Who Cried Wolf."

The latest drama began to unfold on Oct. 17, when the manager of a Tuesday Morning discount store in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley saw a man throwing a garbage bag into the store's private dumpster. Inside the bag was a file folder containing eight completed Virginia voter registration forms.
The manager described the man to Rockingham County sheriff's deputies, who the following day arrested Colin Small, 23, a voter registration drive contractor for the Virginia GOP -- and charged him with eight felonies and five misdemeanors related to the destruction and disclosure of the applications and obstruction of justice.

A few weeks earlier, the GOP had been under fire following reports of suspicious registration applications that had been submitted in 10 Florida counties by a company run by Nathan Sproul, a Republican operative who has long been trailed by allegations of voter fraud. The Republican Party paid Sproul's company, Strategic Allied Consulting, about $3 million this year for registration drives in five swing states: Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Nevada, and Virginia.

In Palm Beach County, Fla., alone, about 100 questionable voter registrations were flagged, more than half of which involved changing a voter’s party affiliation to Republican or independent. Discrepancies were also found in North Carolina.

And a viral video uploaded to YouTube in late September showed a young woman who worked for Strategic Allied Consulting registering voters in Colorado and admitting that she was only looking for Republicans. "Well, I'm actually trying to register people for a particular party. Because we're out here in support of Romney, actually," the woman said.

I was always intrigued by PA House Majority Leader, John Turzai's comment at a Republican State Committee meeting, "Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done." If elections are so rife with fraud and voter ID laws are the necessary fix, why did he cite Romney's win as the only benefit of those laws?

Is this supposed to be a joke? Early voting is now being called voter fraud? I guess in the absence of any actual fraud, you have to change the definition.

Um, no. Voting early AND voting often is being called voter fraud.
So are "domicile" and "residence" irregularities. So is "illegal alien" (overwhelmingly Mexican/Central-South American) with a fraudulent Social Security number. So is "bounties" for otherwise unqualified-to-vote registration drives. So is voting after your dead.
Problem is, when such events actually DO see the light of day, those (R's) are in the headline, and those (D's) are nowhere to be found. It's a game called "Guess the Party".

Have there been ANY documented cases of an individual voting more than once?

My guess is the number is pretty similar to the number of athletes who give "110 percent" (which is impossible).

Taking silly sayings seriously is silly in itself.

Tom McLaughlin said...

Melowese Richardson, Ohio Democrat election official, was on stage hugging the allegedly Reverend Al at his "voting rights" rally three weeks ago. She was convicted of voting at least twice.

In 2010, the North Carolina legislature became Republican for the first time since 1870. They're looking into 36,000 potential cases of double voting and 81 cases of dead people voting while the state was run by that other party.

There are precincts in Philadelphia and other cities in which there were more votes than registered voters. More than 110%. All of them were for our dear leader, President Obama. Sounds like North Korea, no?

Gotta go now. Working on next week's column. You anonymouses won't like that one either, so get ready to be outrageously outraged again.

I can see why you are in such a hurry to run away like a frightened little schoolgirl after dropping off that latest load of BS!! Wouldn't want to stick around and try to defend it, huh?

"After initial hysteria, back-pedaling over NC voter fraud claims"

Read the full story:


But at least that claim had a thread of substance to it, unlike your Philidelphia fairy tale.

FactCheck.Org (on whether this was true or not):

No. A viral email that makes those claims is bogus.

How can you just report any old viral crap that comes your way just because you wish it were true? Have you NO dignity? No honor? Are you really such a sucker, a gullible pawn in the corporate game? I guess that is better than the alternative, which is that you are a dishonest cretin with no integrity.

Oh, and I gaurentee that I will LOVE your next column, like I loved this one! Besides being hilarious, these columns of yours ALWAYS backfire and blow up in your face, exposing the desperate lies and intense hypocricy involved.

Keep it up!!!!

Don't make fun of Tom, he saw it on the internet, so it MUST be true.

Why I just got an email letting me know that Obama has just had an operation implanting a teleprompter into his eyelids! Hard to believe, but I read it! Wow, the things technology can do nowadays!

Gotta go now, I'm off to the bank to wire some money to some guy in Kenya who is later going to make me rich!!!!
