GOP Triumphs Despite Voter Fraud
In a stunning, historic election wave, the GOP seized control of the Senate, consolidated its control over the House, and expanded the number of Republican governors.
A Washington Times headline captures the spirit of the event: “Landslide: Republicans capture Senate and prized governorships.” The Blaze trumpeted: “Republicans Seize the U.S. Senate.”
The Huffington Post’s one-word headline – “OUCH” – speaks volumes. (The “O” is Obama’s trademark symbol.)
Conservatives and liberals naturally disagree over the causes and portents of the wave.
A Rush Limbaugh headline described one news outlet’s aversion to the election results: “CNN Covers Potential GOP Victory Like an Invasion from Mars.”
Forbes blamed the President. One headline, “Republican Victory Is A Rejection Of President Obama.” Another, “Victory For The GOP: It’s The President, Stupid.”
The Washington Post blamed Democratic campaign strategies and messaging – not policies and real-world realities – for GOP victories: “Inside the Republican win: How Democratic infighting, missteps helped the GOP.”
Slate acknowledged Democratic defeat, explaining “Why the Democrats Got Massacred.”
While many conclude that the GOP was given a mandate to counter very unpopular Obama policies, the New Republic contests that viewpoint: “Election Day’s Biggest Lie: GOP Victory Will Be a Mandate.”
Given these substantial GOP victories, New Republic is wrong. Despite the “mainstream” media being largely in lockstep with Democratic Party positions and candidates (and refusal to cover major Obama administration scandals), the Justice Department’s obsessive opposition to voter ID laws (and refusal to investigate major Obama administration crimes), many voting irregularities, some voting machine malfunctions, and outright voter fraud, this election remains a repudiation of Obama’s ultra-liberal policies, foreign and domestic.
It’s surprising how often the Chicago politics-style phrase “Vote early, and vote often” appeared on the lips of Democrats, even the President, who said, “Because early voting runs through this Friday, you don’t have to wait until election day. You can vote all week! … I mean you can only vote once. This isn’t Chicago now.”
Results from a Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) show that a large number of non-U.S. citizens voted in 2008 and 2010: “based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.” That is a huge figure!
Lax voting protocols in states like New Hampshire almost ensure voter fraud will occur. There, anyone can same-day register and vote with an affidavit in lieu of documentation proving “your identity, your citizenship and your domicile.”
In Chicago, yesterday, some voters received incomplete ballots which “did not contain five statewide referendums up for a vote in Illinois — two of which are constitutional amendments and will become law if they pass and take effect immediately.”
Several states had voting machines which changed votes from Republican to Democrat (but not vice versa).
One voting machine in Texas left off the name of the Republican gubernatorial candidate.
Yet, despite these manifest violations of the integrity of our voting system, Republicans still succeeded at the ballot box, suggesting that many Americans are saying, “Dude, Obama was like six years ago. Time to move on now.”
