VOTER FRAUD ALERT: Ohio Elections Chief Appeals Court Ruling
(FROM: Associated Press) In 2000, only 537 votes decided the presidential election. Now, more than 200,000 newly-registered voters in Ohio alone have mismatched data. Amidst the voter fraud being reported from coast-to-coast and the same day registration and absentee voting extravaganza in Ohio, the Ohio GOP have asked the Secretary of State there to set up a system by which these problematic registrations can be sorted out. The Secretary of State said no, and is now appealing a decision from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals directing her to do the same. Her reason? Voter disenfranchisement. This is disgusting. What I’d really, really like to know is how many of these instances of voter fraud–now, we’re learning that ACORN is at work in Philadelphia, as if I couldn’t see them on Market Street every day–are in states which require even a modest form of voter identification. I’ve heard the argument that some people just don’t have photo I.D. (yeah, many are called illegal immigrants) and I guess I can understand it — however, I fail to see how requiring something as simple as a pair of utility bills bearing the voters name or address is somehow stifling people’s right to vote.

Secret Service Says ‘Kill Him’ Allegation Unfounded
(FROM: The Times Leader) A Scranton, PA newspaper first reported it, then it was picked up by ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Finally, it was repeated by Barack Obama in last night’s presidential debate. Somebody at a recent McCain-Palin rally, Obama said, shouted “kill him!” from the audience. The only problem? The Secret Service said it didn’t happen. Now, that’s not to say that some fired-up McCain supporters haven’t been shouting some unfortunate things, but there are ignorant and classless people on both sides, such as the Barack Obama supporters who wear “Sarah Palin is a Cunt” t-shirts or write in to Web sites like The Daily Kos saying things like, “Sarah Palin’s Down’s baby should have been aborted.” To me, when Obama made this cringe-worthy argument–nobody wants to hear shouts of “kill him!”–it was a lot like him attacking McCain first by making the assumption that, just maybe, McCain may say that he “doesn’t look like the other presidents” on the bills in our wallets. Evoking emotion–the liberal currency–by touting something that hasn’t happened just rubs me the wrong way.

U.S. Communists Say Their Time has Come
(FROM: Agence France-Presse) It certainly has. We’re slip-sliding away down the slippery slope of socialism. I find it amazing that it took literally an Average Joe [the Plumber] to do what the mainstream press has not done at all in this election cycle — get to the heart of Barack Obama’s ideological perspective. It took Joe the Plumber less than five minutes to get Obama to admit that he’s all about “sharing the wealth,” something most of us have known about but never heard in such a straightforward way from the Illinois senator. Now, I didn’t take notes while watching last night’s presidential debate (at the risk of sounding like a complete right-wing nutjob, I was actually cleaning my guns while it was on), but did John McCain actually use the word “socialism?” He hit Obama pretty hard on the plumber issue — but he could have followed through a little better. So yes, for card-carrying communists here in the United States of America, their time has certainly come — now if only someone would ask them who they’re voting for.

Recharging McCain’s Battery Prize
(FROM: National Review) Generally, when John McCain opens his mouth to talk about energy, I cringe. He doesn’t want to drill ANWR, he embraces the facade for global socialism which is Global Warming, and he “reached across the aisle” to Joe Lieberman for the [thankfully] failed Climate Stewardship Act a few years ago. In the spring and early summer, however, McCain was talking about gas mileage in our vehicles and, rather than resort to the temptation that is a government-mandated standard, he spoke about developing a better battery system through government-sponsored competition. His idea, to offer a $300 million “prize” for the development of a better battery was nothing short of fantastic — it showed that he truly treasures American hard work and innovation, and knows that subsidies and mandates can only get the government so far. This article rightfully questions why he hasn’t talked about it further.


McCain Map Strategy Prompts Head-Scratching
(FROM: Politico) Personally, I don’t lend much credence to the polls. Over the past couple of election cycles, and certainly in the most recent two, they’ve just been off. There’s just too much chance for variation from the facts — whether it be from the agenda of those conducting the polls or the bias of those releasing the numbers or even the idiosyncrasies of those being asked the questions, I just don’t trust them. For instance, I don’t subscribe to the idea put forth by ABC News yesterday that Barack Obama has a double-digit lead, and believe that many are used to suppress voting on one side or another. According to this article, however, John McCain may not even have looked at the red-state/blue-state maps at all. This piece is an interesting look at what they call a somewhat disjointed plan, but I think their criticism is founded on the ideas that the polls are correct, a fundamental flaw. Nevertheless, it makes for an interesting read, and we really won’t know until [hopefully] late on the fourth of November.

Beck Headed to Fox News?
(FROM: Media Bistro) Hmmm. I know that a lot of the readers here at America’s Right really like Glenn Beck. I do, too, though I don’t often have the time or chance to listen to his radio show or watch his TV show. It seems like a natural fit, though. Anyway, while this certainly isn’t “Assigned Reading,” I felt like I should at least point out the item for the Glenn Beck fans here. UPDATE: Politico says that it’s official.

    He serves no purpose to Obama other than his hate for Israel.

    At one point in time you had to be a land owner to vote. I wish they would go back to it. It kept outsiders from being able to **** things up.

    The Soviets said long ago they would destroy the US from the inside out. What better Trojan Horse than one of the Islamics? They’ve funded those animals for ages just to do this!

    Obama was a member of the Socialist Party in Illinios, called the “New Party”. Back when Fox News hadn’t sold out on telling the truth, they did this report:

    Jeff:

    I don’t imagine that you were around during the 60s when the left wing extremism flourished on most American campusues.

    One think I learned then by interacting with the left, reading Marx and Engels, Nietzsche etc(Its always good to understand your opponents) and attending Angela Davis talks (you could always meet some interesting women at these events) was that the extreme left wing has no set up standards when it comes to truth, and right and wrong as constants only what suites them and their needs at the time.

    ncmama,

    It’s an intervening motion, one of three filed by various people who wish to join the case for various reasons. Personally, I think it’s a little bit of a distraction, but it’s their right to do so.

    I happen to think we should be focusing on the case-in-chief.

    Jeff,

    Did you know that the left-wing blogs like the daily kos and others are today “vetting” plumber joe. They have blogged that they have been looking into his past for any indications of DUI, divorce, tax evasion, voter fraud, etc. They have said that they have discovered through “inside sources” that he is not even a registered voter or a licensed plumber. They are tearing this poor man apart and claiming that he was a plan from McCain and that he is clearly a racist because as they say, “he crossed his arms and backed away when Barack put his hand on his shoulder.” What is wrong with these people? They think it’s necessary and appropriate to look into the past of an American citizen who chooses to ask their candidate an honest question, yet they see it as racist and ludicrous to ask that their candidate himself be “vetted” and prove that he himself in a U.S. citizen. Do they honestly believe that McCain somehow planted this man in a random neighborhood that Obama stopped in and somehow forced Obama to make the comment that he wants to “spread the wealth around”. No one put those words in his mouth, he chose them all by himself.

    Interesting find here on the “New Party”, the Socialist party Obama came from.

    http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=7434

    Marxist political coalition
    Was active from 1992-1998
    Endorsed Barack Obama for Illinois state senate seat in 1996

    Co-founded in 1992 by Daniel Cantor (a former staffer for Jesse Jackson’s 1988 presidential campaign) and Joel Rogers (a sociology and law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison), the New Party was a Marxist political coalition whose objective was to endorse and elect leftist public officials — most often Democrats. The New Party’s short-term objective was to move the Democratic Party leftward, thereby setting the stage for the eventual rise of new Marxist third party.

    Most New Party members hailed from the Democratic Socialists of America and the militant organization ACORN. The party’s Chicago chapter also included a large contingent from the Committees of Correspondence, a Marxist coalition of former Maoists, Trotskyists, and Communist Party USA members.

    The New Party’s modus operandi included the political strategy of “electoral fusion,” where it would nominate, for various political offices, candidates from other parties (usually Democrats), thereby enabling each of those candidates to occupy more than one ballot line in the voting booth. By so doing, the New Party often was able to influence candidates’ platforms. (Fusion of this type is permitted in seven states — Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Mississippi, New York, South Carolina, and Vermont — but is common only in New York.)

    Though Illinois was not one of the states that permitted electoral fusion, in 1995 Barack Obama nonetheless sought the New Party’s endorsement for his 1996 state senate run. He was successful in obtaining that endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers.

    In 1996, three of the four candidates endorsed by the New Party won their electoral primaries. The three victors included Barack Obama (in the 13th State Senate District), Danny Davis (in the 7th Congressional District), and Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in the 7th Subcircuit Court. All four candidates attended an April 11, 1996 New Party membership meeting to express their gratitude for the party’s support.

    The New Party’s various chapters similarly helped to elect dozens of other political candidates in a host of American cities.

    One of the more notable New Party members was Carl Davidson, a Chicago-based Marxist who became a political supporter of Barack Obama in the mid-1990s.

    In 1997 the New Party’s influence declined precipitously after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that electoral fusion was not protected by the First Amendment’s freedom of association clause. By 1998 the party was essentially defunct. Daniel Canto and other key party members went on to establish a new organization with similar ideals, the Working Families Party of New York.

    Well, poor Joe the Plumber was just destroyed. Obama’s mob was sent in to destroy Joe’s credibility and his ability to earn a wage. He was not up to date with his apprentice license through his employer and he is now out of a job.
    Thanks Obama! Well, I don’t think we can verbalize any opinions especially if it is against Obama.

    ACORN went into the ALLEGHENY COUNTY JAIL (PITTSBURGH PA.) and signed up anybody and everybody to vote. It is now the job of Allegheny County to find out who can vote and who can not.

    Sorry off topic but very important – nobody is addressing this issue!

    Voluntarily or not, Obama has lost his law license to practice in Illinois since sometime this year, 2008.

    Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission site states:

    Barack Hussein Obama – not authorized to practice law

    Illinois Registration Status: Voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law – Last Registered Year: 2008

    Go to the ARDC site below and put Obama's name, last name – Obama, first name – Barack, into the search blank.

    http://www.iardc.org/lawyersearch.asp

    Maybe because this is related to the Berg law suits? Why did he give up his law license…????

    Usually lawyers give up their law licenses before theirs officially taken away to avoid embarrassment.

    Thanks Jeff! I see where you mentioned it over the past couple of days. I’m just now getting used to how this website works. A very interesting side note…A friend of mine has been spending quite a bit of time blogging on the USA Today blog site. She has put so much time and energy over the past couple of months trying to clearly and non-confrontationally argue our side, hoping that maybe one or two people would possibly see the light. Well, yesterday she brought up this Berg vs Obama citizenship issue and blogged back and forth with a few people. Today she went to continue her “conversations” and every single one of her entries had been removed from their site. They had also removed all entries (everyone’s) surrounding the citizenship issue. Now, I am usually a very level headed person but I’m beginning to feel like I’m in the twilight zone. Why is this happening and how are they getting away with it? What can we do? Have you seen this petition…

    Off topic, but McCain’s speech tonight at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial was absolutely brilliant. He was real and human. It’s too bad the electorate can’t see this side of him more often. Obama was good too, but not as good as McCain. Who ever wrote that speech for him deserves kudos all around.

    Obama and the “Professional Black-Victims Cartel”
    By Tom Deweese Wednesday, October 15, 2008

    Here is something that may provide some insight into Obama supporters’ use of the race card. In 2007, it was learned that the University of Delaware has a mandatory program that requires residence hall students to acknowledge that “all whites are racist.” The program went on to offer misguided whites “treatment” for incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering a school.

    Now, why did the school think all whites are racist? Because this is their definition of racism: “A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture, or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. System, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.” The school’s policy deserves mention …[ENDQUOTE](http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/5585)

    Jeff,

    I looked at the site ARDC Anon (above) was talking about. It says this…

    Malpractice Insurance:(Current as of date of registration;
    consult attorney for further information)

    In annual registration, attorney reported that he/she does not have malpractice coverage. (Some attorneys, such as judges, government lawyers, and in-house corporate lawyers, may not carry coverage due to the nature of their practice setting.)

    Since I can’t imagine giving up a law license after celebrating some years before as being the first African American to be head of the Law Review at Harvard, this just doesn’t make sense to me.

    Is this a generic reason to give? Does this indicate anything? What does this REALLY mean in the world of law?
