news: Military Absentee Ballots Would Have Swung Election For Romney
IT IS UNFAIR
SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL BEING DESTROYED
BUT WE CAN’T CONTINUE LIKE THIS. WE HAVE BEEN SUFFERING A SLOW DEATH FOR 50 YEARS AND OBAMA IS JUST GOING TO SPEED THINGS UP.
SO NOW WE EITHER FIGHT OR BITCH UP. WE EITHER COMPROMISE OR DON’T COMPROMISE. WE EITHER GIVE IN OR DON’T GIVE UP.
CHEERS! HERE IS TO THE 36TH DUMBEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!

HELLO! HELLO! HELLO?
MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD HERE! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF VOTES NOT COUNTED.
SCOTT WALKER WAS A REAL CONSERVATIVE AND HE WON TWO ELECTIONS IN WISCONSIN. MITT ROMNEY WAS A LIBERAL MODERATE CONSERVATIVE AND HE LOST WISCONSIN.
MUSIC TO READ BY:
LIBERAL MODERATE CONSERVATIVES DON’T ATTACK OBAMA WHERE HE SHOULD BE ATTACKED: ON SOCIAL AND INTERNATIONAL ISSUES FIRST AND ECONOMIC ISSUES LAST. BUT, SCOTT WALKER WON ON FISCAL ISSUES.
EVERY TIME ROMNEY SHOWED STRENGTH HE PULLED AHEAD IN THE POLLS. EVERY TIME ROMNEY SHOWED WEAKNESS HE FELL BEHIND IN THE POLLS. DEBATES WERE ONE EXAMPLE BUT HIS ATTACK ADDS WERE ALSO VERY EFFECTIVE.
CONSERVATIVES SHOULD NOT COMPROMISE WITH DEMOCRATS.
AS LONG AS REPUBLICANS HIDE THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND OVER MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD, DEMONCRATS WILL KEEP STEALING CLOSE ELECTIONS.
8 hours ago – Voter Fraud Watch: Key Voter Fraud Cases That Could Plague 2012 Election. In the lead-up to Election Day, Fox News Channel has brought …
WASHINGTON, DC – Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.
Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.
“I told Gunny we got a bunch of ballots instead of ammo,” Davis told investigators earlier today. “He told me to file a report of improper delivery and that the chain of command would take care of it. We didn’t hear anything for three weeks. While we were waiting we came under fire so we dumped a bunch of them in the Hescoes. We didn’t dig those ones back out.”
After military officials realized the initial error, the ballots were then sent back to the U.S. but suffered a series of setbacks.
Twelve boxes of ballots were dropped overboard during delivery to the USS Kearsarge (LHD-3) in the Persian Gulf, then while the ship sailed to Bahrain, postal clerks allegedly pocketed whatever ballots they wanted.
The remaining absentee ballots were loaded onto a C-130, but the flight was delayed until November 1st so the crew could get tax free pay for the month. Once the ballots arrived stateside they were promptly mailed to each state’s counting facility, reaching their final destination on November 7th.
“It’s a shame,” Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment. “I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. It’s really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.”
Upon hearing the news, angry Republicans have begun a demand for a recount, but most military absentee voters have shrugged off the news, with many wondering whether the care packages their families sent six months ago were ever going to show up.

A security camera installed by Victor Chernovsky, a resident of French Hill in Jerusalem, shows three Arab Muslims setting fire to his cars. The same thing happened to him last year.
INN Chernovsky described daily harrassment by Arab Muslim neighbors. “They constantly throw rocks at us. All the time. Children aged 8 or 9 pelt us with rocks and above them, the Border Police stand there and they curse and laugh at them. They put a new loudspeaker on the mosque and we hear it as if it is inside our home. They set off fireworks at 11 pm or 12 midnight. It’s impossible to live here. They threw a rock at my wife’s car when she was inside with two grandmothers. Then on March 8, international women’s day, they gave her a ‘gift’ and burned her car.”
French Hill is a mostly Jewish neighborhood in the northeast part of Jerusalem, and is home to many students from the nearby Hebrew University campus, who rent apartments in the neighborhood. In recent years, several Arab Muslim families have bought homes in the neighborhood, often to the chagrin of residents, who fear that that even if the homeowners are law-abiding, Arab terrorists from nearby villages could use the French Hill Arab residents’ as a “cover” to get into the neighborhood and carry out terror attacks.

A group of Jews who ascended the Temple Mount were shocked to see that ancient beams of wood from the period of the Holy Temple were being used as firewood by Arab Muslims on the Mount, and off it.
INN (H/T Liz) Archaeologists have dated the wood as far back as the First Temple period, and appear to be among the celebrated ‘Cedars of Lebanon mentioned in the Tanach. The wood, consisting of giant beams, first appeared at the end of the 1930s, when the Al-Aqsa mosque which now occupies the Temple Mount was refurbished. The beams had been used in the roof structure of the mosque, and already at that time they were said to be thousands of years old by archaeologists – preserved because they had been used in the building. Some of the beams were dated to the first Temple period, others to Roman times, and more than one beam was found to have Byzantine-era designs etched on it.
After the beams were removed from the mosque, they were stored in a museum on the Mount. However, in recent years the beams were moved to a corner of the Mount, open to the elements – and archaeologists fear that exposure to winter rain and summer sun will be their undoing. Some of the beams were taken out several years ago, and more have been spotted in recent months. Reports said that the Arab Muslims, who have been trying for years to ger rid of the beams, have begun burning them.
Now, many of the beams have been placed at what appears to be a dumping ground next to the Golden Gate of the Old City, apparently for the use of local Arab Muslims as firewood. Jewish groups that visited the Mount saw the beams being moved, but reported that the Arab Muslims forbade them to take photos of the activity. Officials of the Archaeology Authority, who are responsible for the safety of these ancient beams, are nowhere to be seen.
Organizations that are involved in attempting to secure Jewish rights on the Mount expressed shock at the story. “It appears that this is part of the systematic attempts by Arabs to destroy all connections between the Jewish people and the Temple Mount,” said a spokesperson for one of the groups.
Manhigut Yehudit leader Moshe Feiglin expressed shock at the destruction of the important artifacts under the noses of Israeli authorities, and expressed hope that Likud voters would choose the Manhigut Yehudit faction to help defend the holy places of the Jewish people.

townhall.com ^ | 6 November, 2012 | Katie PavlichThose of us who thought U.N election observers would be completely worthless or unhelpful today, were wrong.

Can’t make this stuff up. People in the New York and New Jersey area devastated by Hurricane Sandy are without homes, or have homes but no electricity while sleet and snow is pounding the area.

However, despite a 78 to 21 percent split in favor of Mitt Romney among white evangelicals, the coalition’s leader implied that Barack Obama’s win was catapulted by votes from youths and minorities. “Evangelicals turned out in record numbers and voted as heavily for Mitt Romney yesterday as they did for George W.

The Washington Times ^ | 11/8/12 | Brett M. DeckerThe day after a presidential election is a time for soul-searching for the losing party. Republicans need to look in the mirror and seriously analyze the troublesome reality that they have forgotten how to win important elections. With unemployment stuck around 8 percent, economic growth basically nonexistent and the nation suffocating from record debt, the White House should have been the GOP’s for the taking in 2012. The elephants need a new dynamic leader. It’s vital they don’t pick a RINO. The biggest bull in the herd is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The moderate party establishment naturally gravitates toward…

He lost because the rest of us thought that when he mouthed the words “Read my lips, go to Texas,” he meant “Read my lips, no new taxes.” There was Bob Dole,…
Reading the last two days discussion of what happened Tuesday, IMO there is one line of argument that needs to be abandoned because it’s both incorrect and counterproductive: “They stole it”. The problem with the “vote fraud” theory is that that convincing evidence that it’s not correct; for example the actual results were very close to the aggregate polling predictions in the last weeks before the election, see for example: http://election.princeton.edu/2012/11/07/after-the-storm/ For that to happen you would not only have to rig not only the election but also both the national and state level polling in such a way that…

Many conservatives noticed how the mainstream media has played the role of Nixon’s henchmen rather than Woodward and Bernstein in the Benghazi coverup and reporting on the Hurricane Sandy federal response debacle. Now a new survey completed by Breitbart News and Judicial Watch on election night confirms that most voters have no confidence in the media. As the press…

Townhall.com ^ | November 8, 2012 | Victor Davis HansonBarack Obama won a moderately close victory over Mitt Romney on Tuesday. But oddly, nothing much has changed. The country is still split nearly 50/50. There is still a Democratic president, and an almost identically Democratic Senate at war with an identically Republican House, in a Groundhog Day America. Obama’s win did not really reflect affirmation of his first term, given that the president made only halfhearted efforts to defend Obamacare, the stimulus, huge Keynesian deficits and his attempts to implement cap-and-trade. So if there is a second-term agenda, even Obama supporters don’t quite know what it will be. Unlike…

WASHINGTON – The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell last week, a sign the labor market’s slow recovery was gaining traction although a severe storm distorted the data. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 355,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday. That was below the median forecast in a Reuters poll of 370,000. An analyst from the department said Sandy, a mammoth storm that slammed into the East Coast on October 29, boosted claims in some states by leaving people out of work, but also reduced claims in at least…

Before you give in to the hysteria, here are a few things to keep in mind. First, Barack Obama’s re-election showing was actually pretty unimpressive for a guy whose philosophies voters have supposedly adopted. As of this writing on Wednesday, Obama’s vote total stood at an unimpressive 60,119,958. That’s about what John Kerry got in 2004 (59,028,444). President…

The Hamas terrorist organization, in violation of the Oslo Accords, does not recognize the State of Israel, and uses violence against it.
The new threat, radical global Islam, has been sanitized by the Obama Administration, which wants the American people to believe that we should actually offer financial aid and assistance to Islamist regimes in the Middle East.
by NORMAN SIMMS
Everyone on the media these days answers questions, pro and con, as “Absolutely,” meaning yes without question or hesitation and no without any holding back.
An Islamist activist honored by the White House last December as a “Champion of Change” called Zionism “racism” this week and said “nothing is creepier” than the belief in a Jewish homeland.
The lights have gone out in America now. They may come back. They may not. It’s up to us. No one is going to come help us do it. Other countries have America. We have ourselves.
Some of our conservative friends will argue that Mr. Obama’s victory thus represents a decline in national virtue and a tipping point in favor of the “takers” over the makers. They will say the middle class chose Mr. Obama’s government blandishments over Mr. Romney’s opportunity society. We don’t think such a narrow victory of an incumbent President who continues to be personally admired justifies such a conclusion.
Fears that President Obama’s re-election could send the US over the “fiscal cliff” helped trigger a major stock selloff and sent investors into the safety of Treasurys
“When was President Obama made aware of these two attacks on the Benghazi compound?”
Team Obama has been telling us that they’ve been playing it low-key because they feared the crisis might spread beyond Syrian borders if we took a bigger role.
Our troops put their lives on the line to protect our right to vote, but untold thousands of them were unable to cast their own ballots on Tuesday. For shame.
If Obama has to have any kind of military, he prefers the kind where young men with college degrees sit in a room, push buttons and kill people thousands of miles away from remotely controlled aircraft.
by PETER FARMER
Years of unrelenting pressure by the cultural left have utterly transformed the United States armed forces, changing them into something that Reagan would not recognize.
Obama and other people speaking for the administration claimed that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration sparked by anger from an anti-Islamic video made in the U.S. But that was just the beginning.
