...the bottom line is, if less than half of our folks vote, these laws aren’t preventing the other half from not voting." --President Barack Obama, admitting the truth on The Al Sharpton Show

SHOCKA: Chicago-area voting machine casts GOP candidate’s vote for... his Democrat opponent

By Illinois Review


SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead.

voteballotbox“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race. It is unknown if the machine in question (#008958) has been removed from service or is still in operation.

Yet Another Email Conversation With a Drone

Email received from a hard-core Leftist drone:

I like what Ohio's Governor Kasich had to say about Obamacare: "it's here to stay."

My response:

Yep, he expanded Medicaid, but he lost the base in doing so.

Drone:

The Republican base consists of religious conservatives. I think it was a mistake for Reagan to begin the process of flooding the party with them. Good for elections. Bad for governing. They put religion before party, before country--before everything.

Me:

Huh? The Reagan base consists largely of Constitutionalists, who are interested in keeping government living within its means. That the country was founded by moral men of faith is tangential.

The secular Left ignores the Constitution and uses extra-legal mechanisms -- from vote fraud to court-stuffing -- to achieve that which they could never do so via popular vote or Amendment process.

The New Deal to Obamacare (and everything in between) being cases in point.

Drone:

Jerry Falwell and Reagan worked together, I believe, to ensure greater participation of religious conservatives in the republican party. Maybe you're too young to remember that.

Me:

Of course I remember the Moral Majority. Reagan's governing principles were rooted in Constitutionalism and limited government ("Government is not the solution; government is the problem."). Maybe you're too young to remember that.

Drone:

I agree that those were his "governing principles." His election strategy is what I'm talking about. Too many religious conservatives in the party. Mixing government and religion is dangerous. As a Constitutional conservative, I'm sure you're aware that the Founders were acutely aware of that. Doesn't mean they weren't deists. Doesn't mean they weren't moral men. Just means religion and government are a bad mix.

Me:

>>> Just means religion and government are a bad mix.

Which is why Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, right?

FireEye introduces Global Cyber Threat Map

Security firm FireEye recently introduced a threat map that, if nothing else, looks cool:

The ThreatMap data is a sample of real data collected from our two-way sharing customers for the past 30 days. The data represented in the map is malware communication to command and control (C2) servers, where the “Attackers” represent the location of the C2 servers and “Targets” represent customers.

To mask customer identity, locations are represented as the center of the country in which they reside. There is nothing in the data that can be used to identify a customer or their origin city. The “attacks today” counter is not a real time. Rather, we take a real, observed attack rate and then calculate attacks for the day based on local time.

Time Warner Cable's Advertised $89.99 Triple Play: Now Just $190.77!

By Bruce Kushnick.

This is my October 2014 Time Warner "Triple Play" bill. When I signed up, less than two years ago, it was advertised at $89.99 and today, less than two years later, the actual price is 110% more -- now $190.77.

Fact is -- you can never, ever get the advertised price because it doesn't include many of the fixed costs, like the set top box, not to mention it is littered with pass-throughs of the company's taxes and fees, including the cable franchise fees. To add insult to injury, there are a bunch of garbage, made up charges, and let us not forget the increases on all services -- the 'Internet modem' fee went up 140 percent.

Not to mention I was overcharged as the Universal Service Fund calculation is wrong by $.07 -- not in my favor.

I know most of you reading this "feel my pain."

This bill is like going to a restaurant and ordering the $20.00 dinner 'special' only to get a bill of $38.68, not counting the allowable taxes. When you ask the wait-person about the extras, they respond -- Well, there is a "silverware rental" fee -- you could have brought your own utensils, right? A "garbage disposal fee"-- someone had to clean off your plates and take out the trash. And, of course, a "no smoking" fee, because if people could smoke in here, we'd make more money.

GREAT NEWS: Obama Quietly Prepares 34 Million Green Cards and Work Permits for His Illegal Alien "Amnesty"

Remember, he's got a pen and a phone! And isn't that all that the Constitution requires?

Obama Quietly Prepares 'Surge' Of Millions Of New Immigrant IDs


Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.

Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

Hey, don't the American people overwhelmingly favor importing tens of millions of largely illiterate refugees from Third World countries -- with unknown health conditions and criminal backgrounds -- who will be dependent on the imploding welfare state?

Up to 34 MILLION blank 'green cards' and work permits


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services plans to seek a vendor to produce as many as 34 million blank work permits and 'green cards' – the paperwork that authorizes illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States – as the White House prepares to issue an executive order after the Nov. 4 midterm elections.

...Former State Department foreign service officer Jessica Vaughan, now an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart that the RFP 'seems to indicate that the president is contemplating an enormous executive action that is even more expansive than the plan that Congress rejected in the 'Gang of Eight' bill.'

These Ebola Democrats* have to be nuked from orbit in November. It's the only way to be sure.


* Which is the term they prefer, I hear.

How Ebola Democrats respond to reports that streams of people left a Maryland rally when Obama began to speak

Yesterday President Obama spoke at a rally for Lt. Governor Anthony Brown (D-MD). Reporters at the event, including Reuters' Jeff Mason, stated that the crowd exited en masse as Obama began to speak.


And how, pray tell, did the Ebola Democrats respond? They employed their two favorite tactics.

MY, THAT'S ORIGINAL: ‘Scott Walker is Hitler’ Messaging From the Ebola Democrats, Chapter XXIVIXMSCIL

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON, Wis. — Here we go again — another roadside sign comparing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to Adolf Hitler.

“WALKERS MOTTO DIVIDE & CONQUER SO WAS HITLERS,” proclaims the grammatically challenged, hand-written sign pinned to posts just off of Mariner Road near Wisconsin Highway 83 in Hartland.

The sign is across the highway from Westbrook Church, an Evangelical Christian worship center at 1100 Wisconsin 83.

A church employee confirms seeing the sign posted at the residence. She said the property has long posted one derogatory sign or another about Walker in recent years.

Wisconsin’s campaign silly season has kicked into hyperdrive, although the Hitler rhetoric is nothing new from the left, which holds a searing hatred for Walker.

In 2011, the governor successfully led a public sector collective bargaining reform bill, known as Act 10, that, according to unions and other critics, deprived Wisconsin’s government employees of their rights. Supporters, however, see Act 10 as returning rights to taxpayers.

During debate over Act 10, tens of thousands of protesters – the brunt of them connected with big labor – demonstrated at the state Capitol, while Democrat senators fled the state to stall a vote on the bill.

Hyperbolic signs lined the Capitol Square during those tumultuous times, signs comparing Walker to every despot from Hitler to Osama bin Laden.

The latest sign’s “divide & conquer” reference is an old liberal political chestnut, drawn loosely from comments Walker made to a campaign donors during what was believed to be an off-camera conversation. To the left, the governor’s turn of phrase, “use divide and conquer,” signaled a concerted campaign to take out organization, not simply fix a $3.6 billion budget shortfall that Walker and Republican lawmakers inherited after sweeping into power in 2010.

QOTD: "... the casualties of Obama’s reign in Benghazi are dwarfed by the hundreds of thousands of deaths his policies have led to in Syria and Iraq, and the millions of Iraqis, Syrians and Lybians that those same policies have caused to flee their homes and become homeless in Turkey, Tunisia and other places of refuge. Obama’s legacy is defined by his ideological aversion to American power, his rule as the most anti-military president in our history, and his deeds as an “anti-war” activist, opposed to the “war on terror” because he believes that America’s (and Israel’s) policies are the cause of terrorism and the hatred that Islamic fanatics direct against our country.

Because of his ideological opposition to American power, Obama deliberately and openly surrendered America’s gains in Iraq, which had been won through the sacrifice of thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of American casualties. By deliberately handing over America’s massive military base in Iraq – a country that borders Syria, Afghanistan and Iran – Obama turned that country over to the terrorists and Iran, as his generals and intelligence chief and secretary of defense warned it would. Obama disregarded the warnings from his national security advisers – as no other American president would have – because he regarded America rather than the terrorists as the threat. In abandoning Iraq and deliberately losing the peace, he betrayed every American and every Iraqi who gave their lives to keep Iraq out of the hands of the terrorists and the Islamic Republic of Iran." --David Horowitz
