700,000 Non Citizens Vote in U.S. Elections?

“If they mean 6.4 percent of 11 million illegal immigrants… we’re talking about roughly 700,000 votes being cast by non-citizens in 2008. Stunning. If true, it refutes my earlier contention that proven cases of voter fraud would only swing elections in races that come down to a few hundred votes.”<<<Read More>>>

Black Activists Blast Congressional Attack on Ballot Protections

New Bill Provides Fraudsters with Opportunity to Steal, Nullify Votes of Law-Abiding Americans

Washington, DC – Legal experts with the Project 21 black leadership network are highly critical of new legislation introduced in Congress meant to overturn and pervert reforms to the Voting Rights Act that were instituted by the U.S. Supreme Court just a few months ago.

“This proposal is fundamentally flawed. Instead of explicitly acknowledging the rights of states to engage in lawful voter integrity measures, it only does so begrudgingly. And it fails to reset the clock before allowing the federal officials to micro-manage the voter laws of sovereign states,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former professor of constitutional law and former congressional leadership staff member. “This so-called reform permanently lowers the standard of review for allowing the federal government to intervene in the election law decisions of states in a way that conflicts with the federalist system that our nation’s founders created.”

This past June, a majority of justices on the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Voting Rights Act of 1965 effectively discriminated against certain states and localities by holding them to different enforcement standards than the rest of America and was predicated on behavior from nearly 50 years ago. In its decision, the justices threw out the outdated formula used to determine which jurisdictions were forced to obtain “preclearance” on any voting and election-related change — no matter how small — with the federal government.

Now the “Voting Rights Amendments Act of 2014,” introduced late last week, would create a new formula and with it new criteria that could force even more states and localities to have to report to federal overseers on all matters related to the electoral process. This proposed bill absolutely endangers polling place protections such as photo and government-issued ID requirements recently instituted in many states through democratic means and with strong popular support.

“Specific states were targeted under the old formula, but the proposed legislation makes it clear that any state or municipality could be subject to stiffer scrutiny if it is found to have a recent history of voting problems,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Cherylyn Harley LeBon, a former senior counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee. “This ‘subjective’ criteria is the most troubling and will result in a highly-politicized Department of Justice essentially declaring war on voter ID and other voter integrity measures passed in the various states. This simply does not give me confidence that we can and will be able to reduce voter fraud.”

Project 21 members submitted a legal brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Shelby County v. Holder, the case that brought about the Voting Rights Act of 1965 reform last year. That brief pointed out that evolving attitudes and decreased racial animosity created “new circumstances now place even covered jurisdictions well ahead of where non-covered jurisdictions were in 1965, and provide an ongoing political check against backsliding… The urgent necessity for extreme measures such as preclearance is this well past, and such legislation is no longer appropriate.”

Previously, Project 21 joined with the Pacific Legal Foundation and other organizations on a similar brief urging the Court to take up the Shelby County case.

Activists affiliated with the Project 21 black leadership network are longtime and strong supporters of the various safeguards against identity theft in the electoral process found at the state level. In additional to the legal briefs in the Shelby County case and support of those state-level protections, a delegation of Project 21 members also met with United Nations officials at the world body’s New York City headquarters in 2012 to provide a commonsense rebuttal to efforts at that time on the part of the NAACP to turn the issue of polling place security into an international human rights concern. The U.N. never intervened.

In 2012 and 2013, Project 21 members earned approximately 800 known interviews and media citations with regard to the issue of ballot security. It was the only conservative organization to actively speak out for the concerns of the plaintiffs in the Shelby County case at the Supreme Court plaza on the day the justices heard oral arguments in the case.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over two decades, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative, free-market, non-profit think-tank established in 1982. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated .

Maine Trappers Association Set to Vote September 21

It has been brought to my attention that the Maine Trappers Association will be holding elections for officers at their meeting on September 21, 2013, at the Windsor Fairgrounds. This election may be the most important election in the history of Maine trapping as anti rights groups attempt to ban bear baiting, hounding and trapping. Anyone who knows and understands the history of these anti rights, totalitarian organizations, realizes this is just one step in the complete banning of hunting, trapping and fishing.

With a promised citizens’ initiative for November 2014, it is imperative the Maine Trappers Association has the right leadership in order to aggressively stand up to these groups and organize against them.

If you are not a member of the Maine Trappers Association, now would be a good time to join. If you are a member, make sure to vote. Results will hinge on your participation.

Florida Republican Primary Voting Today

Today is primary voting day for registered republicans in Florida to choose who will represent their party in the November election against incumbent President Barack Obama.

I voted. I just returned. I hopped on my bicycle at 10:05 and peddled about one mile to the precinct, cast my vote and peddled home knowing and resting in comfort that for the next year anyone who doesn’t like my berating of the politicians and ask me if I voted, I can say yes! A vote cast is a permit to bitch.

Get your bitching permit today! (And God make my telephone stop ringing!!!)

A “Feeding” Tube is a Media Device

It’s political regurgitation season once again and once again the people are fully displaying their inability to think, evoke history or differentiate truth. But it’s not solely their fault.

For those of us fortunate enough to be living in Florida, we have all become subjected to the intrusion of filthy and disgusting mass robotic telephone messages that seldom allow anyone to have a moment of peace. It’s worse than living with several 2 and 3-year-old children who have yet to grasp mentally those benign traits necessary for coexistence.

Because our dishonest and lying lawmakers exempted themselves from “do not call” lists, the primary season has them out in full battle gear intruding into every aspect of our lives. It’s worse than SPAM.

What is the reason for this? It’s because the average voter fits a certain profile; a portrait of a non thinker that requires a feeding tube in order to know what is required of them and what decisions to make. The creation of this caricature began in our infancy, molding us into what we have become. As such, those so-called masters of the campaign strategies, believe they know what each candidate should say and do to get you to vote for them, regardless of truth.

Most voters require a feeding tube in order to get their political nutrition. I laughed this morning as I was preparing information to write this article. I decided to Google “feeding tube”. Wikipedia’s first sentences reads: “A feeding tube is a medical device used to provide nutrition to patients who cannot obtain nutrition by swallowing.” Bingo! I changed a couple of words and came up with this: “A feeding tube is a media device used to provide political nutrition to voters who cannot obtain nutrition by thinking.”

As of this writing, there are four GOP candidates remaining in the race. Mitt Romney will be 65 in March. Newt Gingrich will be 69 in June. Ron Paul will be 77 in August and Rick Santorum will be 54 in May. Anyone who has mental capacity to think and recall, knows all about Mitt Romney. He was governor of Massachusetts. The same can be said of Gingrich, who spent years in the United State Congress and was Speaker of the House. Ron Paul has been around in Congress longer than the dust in some of the cracks and Rick Santorum was a senator from Pennsylvania. All of this and people require a televised debate, where biased and misleading questions are asked to candidates, the most who have been instructed how to answer them in order to please the most number of voters. And if having all this valuable information available, there are voters who are undecided. Really?

Because we have been programmed to know where our political nutrition must come from, voters sit down and plug in their feeding tubes to all sources of media. But like with eating food or even taking it by feeding tube, our stomachs must retain the ability to digest and process this food to get the nutrients from it. Being tube fed by the media, still requires the act of digestion. In other words, it is required of the voter, even if you can no longer swallow, to digest the information discarding the waste and using the nutrients.

Media is very powerful. It decides many things in this country and around the world. We are programmed to believe that what comes from media is truth. It is not. There are facts mixed with propaganda – nutrition mixed with waste. You can digest it or regurgitate it.

It is time for voters to once again learn to chew and swallow, get rid of the media feeding tube and engage a thinking-for-yourself kind of brain. Or, you can let the feeding tube tell you how to vote, what to think and how to act.
