Holder’s Race-Baiting Ruse Is About Obama’s Reelection, Not Voting Rights

======================

From CNS News:

January 1, 2011

By Ken Blackwell

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has launched an all-out war on voter-ID laws and other measures to safeguard the electoral process. Although Holder’s actions are purportedly to prevent African-Americans from being disenfranchised, the reality is that they serve the crass political purpose of ensuring that Holder’s boss gets reelected next year.

In the past several years, states have increasingly focused on measures to protect the vote. After years of the federal government loosening voting regulations, such as through the Motor Voter Act and HAVA (Help America Vote Act), the pendulum started swinging back at the state level.

The clearest example of this trend is through voter-ID laws. In 2008, the Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s landmark law requiring citizens to show that they are the person they claim to be by showing government-issued ID before casting a ballot. But, to ensure that those without driver’s licenses or passports are not disenfranchised, Indiana provides free ID’s to everyone who applies for one. The Court upheld this law, with the primary opinion written by no one less than liberal lion Justice John Paul Stevens.

Such laws combat voter fraud that we see on Election Day, especially in certain parts of the nation. In Washington State, King County suddenly “discovered” enough previously “unnoticed” votes for Democrat Christine Gregoire to edge out Republican Dino Rossi for Washington’s governorship in 2004. There are also examples from Wisconsin, Missouri, and other states.

Yet Holder has blocked South Carolina’s voter-ID law. DOJ argues that this law is different from Indiana’s because South Carolina is subject to additional federal oversight under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. (This is especially important because there are several federal cases challenging the constitutionality of Section 5.)

But the reality is that DOJ’s actions are not focused on protecting voting rights. They are instead intended to make sure that Barack Obama wins reelection.

It’s not cynical to say this. The twelve or so battleground states that will decide the 2012 presidential election suggest Obama’s reelection strategy. These states include Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri. All these states have large African-American populations.

The African-American community has a staggeringly-high unemployment rate under President Obama. So Black Americans will not vote for this president because of any prosperity he’s brought to that community. Instead, he has to gin up their votes by painting a picture of racial conflict in which he—and the governmental agency dealing with such things (DOJ)—is their champion.

This is also seen in Holder’s incessant playing of the race card. First, he says we’re a nation of cowards about race. Now that he’s on the ropes for DOJ’s scandalous Operation Fast and Furious gun-running scandal into Mexico, he has the audacity to say that he and President Obama are being attacked in part because they’re both African-Americans.

Voting is a fundamental right. It is the means by which “We the People” consent to be governed for a fixed period of time by certain individuals, by electing them as stewards of governmental power. They wield this power to secure our rights as set forth in the U.S. Constitution and (for state officials) the constitutions of the fifty states.

But there is another voting right. It is the right not to have your legal vote diluted by fraudulent votes. As we explain in our Yale Law & Policy Review article “The Other Voting Right,” every invalid vote cancels out one valid vote. Each such cancellation undermines our democratic republic and reduces the legitimacy of election results.

Cloward-Piven Strategy

Excerpted:

In 1982, partisans of the Cloward-Piven strategy founded a new “voting rights movement,” which purported to take up the unfinished work of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Like ACORN, the organization that spear-headed this campaign, the new “voting rights” movement was led by veterans of George Wiley’s welfare rights crusade. Its flagship organizations were Project Vote and Human SERVE, both founded in 1982. Project Vote is an ACORN front group, launched by former NWRO organizer and ACORN co-founder Zach Polett. Human SERVE was founded by Richard A. Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, along with a former NWRO organizer named Hulbert James.

All three of these organizations – ACORN, Project Vote and Human SERVE – set to work lobbying energetically for the so-called Motor-Voter law, which Bill Clinton ultimately signed in 1993. ******The Motor-Voter bill is widely blamed today for swamping the voter rolls with “dead wood” – invalid registrations signed in the name of deceased, ineligible or non-existent people – thus opening the door to the unprecedented levels of voter fraud and “voter disenfranchisement” claims that followed in subsequent elections.*****

The new “voting rights” coalition combines mass voter registration drives – typically featuring high levels of fraud – with systematic intimidation of election officials in the form of frivolous lawsuits, bogus charges of “racism” and “disenfranchisement” and “direct action” (street protests, violent or otherwise). Just as they swamped America’s welfare offices in the 1960s, the Cloward-Piven team now seeks to overwhelm the nation’s understaffed and poorly policed electoral system. Their antics set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries. For more information on the Voting Rights Movement, see the entry for “Project Vote.”

Both the Living Wage and Voting Rights movements depend heavily on financial support from George Soros’s Open Society Institute. It is largely thanks to money from Soros that the Cloward-Piven strategy continues even now to eat away at America’s political and economic infrastructure.

Repeal the Motor Voter Act

Excerpt:

From John Fund’s book  Stealing Elections:(via PolitickerMD.com)

“Perhaps no piece of legislation in the last generation better captures the ‘incentivizing’ of fraud… than the 1993 National Voter Registration Act…Examiners were under orders not to ask anyone for identification or proof of citizenship. States also had to permit mail-in voter registrations, which allowed anyone to register without any personal contact with a registrar or election official. Finally, states were limited in pruning ‘dead wood’ – people who had died, moved or been convicted of crimes – from their rolls. … Since its implementation, Motor Voter has worked in one sense: it has fueled an explosion of phantom voters.”

Obama, ACORN, and Vote Fraud

Selectively adding millions of Democratic names to the voter rolls remains one of ACORN’s most lucrative activities, for which this organization has been given millions of dollars by organized labor, non-profit foundations, and Democratic-controlled government agencies.

Because Obama had worked closely with one of its leaders, Madeline Talbott, ACORN, in 1995, specifically sought out this radical young lawyer to help craft its lawsuit to impose President Bill Clinton’s 1993 National Voter Registration Act, nicknamed “Motor Voter,” according to Chicago ACORN leader Toni Foulkes.

Obama’s ACORN lawsuit won, thereby slapping aside state officials who resisted Motor Voter because of what it soon proved to be: a 12-lane superhighway to massive vote fraud.

Motor Voter was the Clinton administration’s attempt permanently to tilt voter rolls in favor of the Democratic Party. And Obama, working for ACORN, played a key role in imposing this law.

James Simpson connects some dots highlighting the Cloward-Piven Strategy.  He explains how ACORN’s tactics follow this strategy and its influence on the passage of the Motor Voter Act:

On voting rights, ACORN and its voter mobilization subsidiary, Project Vote, have been involved nationwide in efforts to grant felons the vote and lobbied heavily for the Motor Voter Act of 1993, a law allowing people to register at motor vehicle departments, schools, libraries and other public places. That law had been sought by Cloward and Piven since the early 1980s and they were present, standing behind President Clinton at the signing ceremony.
ACORN’s voter rights tactics follow the Cloward-Piven Strategy:
  • 1. Register as many Democrat voters as possible, legal or otherwise and help them vote, multiple times if possible.
  • 2. Overwhelm the system with fraudulent registrations using multiple entries of the same name, names of deceased, random names from the phone book, even contrived names.
  • 3. Make the system difficult to police by lobbying for minimal identification standards.
In this effort, ACORN sets up registration sites all over the country and has been frequently cited for turning in fraudulent registrations, as well as destroying republican applications. In the 2004-2006 election cycles alone, ACORN was accused of widespread voter fraud in 12 states. It may have swung the election for one state governor.

A Satirical View of Obama’s State of the Union Address: A Grain of Truth In the Message?

No need to watch the State of the Union address tonight, January 27, 2010.  There will be endless reviews, sound bites and talk about this on networks for days.

***Trevor Loudon, from Newzealblogspot.com posted this satirical take on Obama’s State of the Union address.  If you watch compare these notes to what is said.***

Obama’s State of the Union Address

Like all good satire, there’s more than a grain of truth in this one

Obama’s State of the Union Address

My fellow comrades, I come to you this evening to list my accomplishments of the past year and summarize my plans for the coming year.

First, the Nobel awards committee in Oslo, in their infinite wisdom, decided to bestow upon me the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought it was an appropriate honor and I am working hard to achieve the Marxist goal that defines Peace as the worldwide absence of opposition to communism.

I want to emphasize I have done my best to destroy capitalism and the free market system. I have increased government spending to record levels in the hopes of creating more government dependence and increasing inflation. I have increased government rules and regulations to further stifle small business, which we all know is the backbone of capitalism. I shall continue to increase taxation and regulation to the point where big businesses and large corporations will go bankrupt and be ripe for government takeover. I will coordinate this with the unions behind closed doors. I have tirelessly worked with the unions to increase their power and give them special benefits. I nationalized General Motors and I will continue to promote nationalization of core business sectors. I am actively pursing card check and hope card check legislation will pass in my second year of office. I am promoting Cap and Trade legislation that will further hamstring American business. I am also promoting union control of the TSA. I am currently trying to regulate the Banking System to the point where government control is inevitable. I want to emphasize these efforts take time to implement, so don’t expect results overnight.

I will continue to pursue all Global Warming and environmental impact policies and shall attend all conferences that promote such ideas. During this past year, I instructed the EPA to declare Carbon Dioxide a deadly gas. The Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen was a success in a lot of ways, but it did not produce the results I was hoping for. As we all know, Green is the new Red, so we must pursue all policies Green, Green jobs, Green energy and Green-Global Warming education in our schools. I am working with the Department of Education and the NEA in this regard. Indoctrination of our youth is at the core of our success. Again, be patient, the erosive effect on capitalism and our culture takes time.

I have worked hard to get Socialized Medicine implemented and passed by the time of this State of the Union address. As Lenin said, ‘Medicine is the touchstone of Socialism,’ so if our worldwide socialist agenda is going to move forward as we have envisioned, then this must pass, and soon. I am working hard with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid to achieve this objective.

After Socialized Medicine is passed this year, I shall initially devote my efforts to granting Amnesty to all illegal aliens and provide easy access for all of their relatives to come to America. This will guarantee a further deterioration of our social welfare and medical care system that will ease the transfer to socialism for all. I will continue to adhere to the policies outlined by Cloward and Piven in these areas and will work with the Progressive and Black Caucuses to ensure their implementation. Amnesty, along with continued efforts at voter fraud, will ensure a Democratic stranglehold on America for generations to come. This will further ease our transfer of the post-American nation into the One World Socialist Republic.

I intend to pursue Gun Control on various levels this year. More staged atrocities will occur that will get the public aroused to the further need to register and then confiscate all guns. I am working with the Main Stream Media to insure our coverage of this vital area and expect key members in the House and Senate to further prepare the necessary legislation to get this passed.

I have done my best to gut our National Defense. I cancelled the F-22 program, cancelled the US Missile Defense program for Eastern Europe, cut our Missile defense, cancelled any current military Research and Development and will continue to fight pay raises for our military members. I am researching further ways to decrease their benefits. I am hoping to get out of Iraq this year, and after the token buildup in Afghanistan, hope to be out of there by next year. I am abandoning Israel and actively promoting Hamas and the Palestinians and hope a separate Palestinian State will be formed this year. I am ignoring Iran and hoping they get a nuclear weapon this year. That will further destabilize the region and produce more crises in that area which we can use to produce further change here at home. I am also hoping to pursue a Nuclear Free military by the time I leave office. This may invite an attack and hasten the struggle we long for. Again, be patient as these changes take time and always keep in mind we never let a crisis go to waste.

I shall continue to ignore our traditional allies and work feverously with our comrades in Russia and China to produce worldwide communist influence and eventual control.

I shall continue to embrace my Muslim Brothers, and will pursue open immigration from Muslim countries with guaranteed welfare benefits upon arrival. I shall institute an executive order subsidizing the building of Mosques at taxpayer expense. Any man caused disasters will continue to result in the perpetrators being immediately Mirandized and tried in civilian courts with taxpayer-funded attorneys.

I will, of course, continue to promote the health, welfare and government subsistence of my fellow Black Americans. It’s only if we continue to promote class warfare and racism will the socialist revolution come to fruition. I hope to increase affirmative action efforts and legislation and am proposing a bill to bypass job requirements for Blacks in Federal jobs.

As promoted by Alinsky, I will continue to promote the words Hope and Change on the American people until they see the light of Socialism. I shall continue to consult with member of the Communist Party USA, the Czars and my Marxist mentors as I make further plans to change America to a more Progressive Post-American country.

I am hopeful about the 2010 elections. People are already working on the ground to shore up support, infiltrate various organizations, researching and implementing voter fraud, and energizing ACORN. I intend to have Amnesty passed by then so it should be a slam-dunk. Also, keep in mind; much of the Jobs Stimulus billions was laundered to be used for ads and support for Democratic candidates this fall.

Comrades, I have accomplished a lot in one year. I shall do my best to promote our values and, as promised in my campaign, produce a fundamental change in America.

Thank you and Good Night.

Thanks to Art in Idaho.

10 States Seek Waiver to Comply With Military Voting Law’s Absentee Ballot Rules

=============

August 25, 2010

Armed insurgents provide more than enough for our fighting men and women overseas to worry about, but this fall’s jam-packed election calendar is also ambushing them.

Ten states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands are all seeking waivers exempting them from complying with the new law — the Move Act — that requires all states to mail absentee ballots to overseas military voters 45 days before Election Day.

“The waiver process is kind of recognition, probably, that 2010 was going to be a transition year, that some states would have to do things like move their electoral calendar, which is not easy,” said Chip Levengood of the Overseas Vote Foundation.

In Delaware, for example, primary day, Sept. 14, 47 days before Election Day, leaving not enough time for officials in Washington to certify a winner, print ballots and ship them to Mazar-I-Sharif fast enough to comply with the new law.

“It’s been very clear that some of these states were not going to be in compliance with the Move Act a long time ago,” said Eric Eversole, executive director of the Military Voter Protection Project. “And the Department of Justice, each step of the way, has simply not taken the actions to ensure that the Move Act would be implemented in each of the 50 states.”

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who co-authored the Move Act, wrote Attorney General Eric Holder last month to complain that a top Justice Department official had called the law “fairly general” with some provisions “an open question.”

“If a state is not in compliance with the statute,” Cornyn wrote Holder, “there is little room for ‘dialogue’ or negotiation, and (the department’s) Voting (Rights) Section should take immediate steps to enforce the law.”

An assistant attorney general fired back four days later, writing to Cornyn, “The department (is) forming a team of attorneys to monitor state compliance with the act’s requirements.”

NOT ENOUGH TIME TO ACT YOU SAY?

LETS Review here……..

EXCLUSIVE: DOJ Accused of Stalling on MOVE Act for Voters in Military

July 28, 2010

The Department of Justice is ignoring a new law aimed at protecting the right of American soldiers to vote, according to two former DOJ attorneys who say states are being encouraged to use waivers to bypass the new federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act.

The MOVE Act, enacted last October (2009), ensures that servicemen and women serving overseas have ample time to get in their absentee ballots. The result of the DOJ’s alleged inaction in enforcing the act, say Eric Eversole and J. Christian Adams — both former litigation attorneys for the DOJ’s Voting Section — could be that thousands of soldiers’ ballots will arrive too late to be counted.

“It is an absolute shame that the section appears to be spending more time finding ways to avoid the MOVE Act, rather than finding ways to ensure that military voters will have their votes counted,” said Eversole, director of the Military Voter Protection Project, a new organization devoted to ensuring military voting rights. “The Voting Section seems to have forgotten that it has an obligation to enforce federal law, not to find and raise arguments for states to avoid these laws.”

**ADD ANOTHER ISSUE with MILITARY VOTING:**

EXCLUSIVE: Military Absentee Voting Pilot Program Downed By Expensive Payout

August 26, 2010

Military voters from at least six states will be unable to participate fully in a Defense Department pilot program — substantially reducing their opportunity to vote in November — because a private election software company is dragging its feet and demanding exorbitant fees to supply states with their own voting data, some state officials participating in the program tell FoxNews.com.

On Monday, one state — Nebraska — backed out of the program entirely.

But the company, Nebraska-based ES&S, says it is a business and deserves compensation for its services. And it says time constraints — not the company — have caused the program to stall.

The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), the Defense Department agency charged with helping military and overseas civilians vote, last year announced the Electronic Voting Support Wizard pilot program, which aims to improve and expedite the delivery of absentee ballots to military servicemen and women who have historically had problems with snail mail delivery or with getting a hold of their ballots due to frequent relocation.

In March, the Defense Department asked vendors that specialize in electronic voting systems to propose a plan for developing and delivering online ballots down to the precinct level — meaning that a military member could log on in Afghanistan and be directed to his or her exact local, county, state and federal election ballots to expedite voting.

Facing Potential Justice Dept. Lawsuit, Arpaio Refuses to Back Down

==================================

=================================

August 4, 2010

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who rose to national fame with his highly publicized crackdowns on illegal immigrants, is standing his ground against the Justice Department, which is threatening to sue his office, arguing that he has refused to cooperate with a civil rights investigation and that he is not in compliance with federal law.

The Justice Department has been investigating Arpaio’s office in Phoenix since March 2009 for alleged discrimination and for unconstitutional searches and seizures. Arpaio says the inquiry is focused on his immigration efforts.

Robert Driscoll, a Washington lawyer representing Arpaio, told FoxNews.com that Arpaio has cooperated and accused the Justice Department of trying to make an example out of Arpaio as the Obama administration seeks to discourage states and local authorities from enforcing their own brand of immigration policy.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt,” Driscoll said when asked whether he believed the investigation is politically motivated. “It’s a media game.”

Driscoll added that if Arpaio was guilty of racial profiling, there would be evidence.

Could there be a police operation that is more transparent than Sheriff Arpaio’s office?” he said. “There are camera crews, reality shows following him as his deputies round up folks in sweeps. He announces them on TV three days before doing it.”

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department declined to comment beyond the letter to Arpaio.

In the letter, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said the sheriff’s office is not turning over material that Perez’s lawyers are requesting. More than a year ago, Arpaio’s lawyers asked that the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility investigate alleged attorney misconduct regarding the investigation. In his letter to Arpaio’s lawyers, Perez said such “unfounded allegations” are not a basis for refusing to cooperate with the Justice Department probe.

In June, the office concluded that no civil rights division attorney at the Justice Department committed professional misconduct or exercised poor judgment in the probe of Arpaio’s office.

Perez gave the sheriff’s office until Aug. 17 to turn over documents first requested last year in what the department calls an inquiry into claims of discrimination based on national origin.

Arpaio and his legal counsel said a year ago that the sheriff’s office would not cooperate with the inquiry.

You probably know him as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” a name given to him years ago by the media. It’s a name he certainly has earned as head of the nation’s third largest Sheriff’s Office which employs over 3000 people. But even before he became Sheriff in 1993, Joe Arpaio was one tough lawman. After serving in the U.S. Army from 1950 to 1953, and as a Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas, NV, police officer for almost five years, Arpaio went on to build a federal law enforcement career and a reputation for fighting crime and drug trafficking around the world.

He began his career as a federal narcotics agent, establishing a stellar record in infiltrating drug organizations from Turkey to the Middle East to Mexico, Central, and South America to cities around the U.S. His expertise and success led him to top management positions around the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). He concluded his remarkable 32-year federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona.

In 1992 Arpaio successfully campaigned to become the Sheriff of Maricopa County. Since then he has been reelected to an unprecedented five 4-year terms. During his tenure as Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arpaio has consistently earned extraordinarily high public approval ratings.

Obama Sides with Terrorists Against Families of Murdered Marines

 

 

First Obama tells America not to “jump to conclusions” about the “terrible tragedy” at Ft. Hood.  U.S Army personnel  13 murdered, 30+ wounded at the hands of an Islamic terrorist are viewed by Obama  as a “terrible tragedy.”

Then, AG Eric Holder announces that the murderers of the 9-11 victims (over 2,000) will be brought to the United States for trial, just blocks from the “pit” where the World Trade Towers once stood, and is giving these murderers the rights of a US Citizen on trial.

 

Now this:

 
 

Obama Justice Department seeks to block enforcement of judgment against Iran for murder of 241 United States Marines

by Bill Levinson

 

November 22, 2009

In 1983, 241 United States Marines were murdered by a suicide bombing in which a Bush-era Federal court ruled that Iran was complicit. The court ordered Iran to pay the families of the murdered service members $2.65 billion. The Boston Globe reports that the Obama Justice Department has, in an effort to appease Iran, intervened to quash the judgment; in other words, Barack Obama has sided openly with terrorists who murder U.S. Marines.

We reported previously that the Obama State Department (Hillary Clinton) has cut off funding for Freedom House and other organizations that report on human rights violations in Iran and other countries. Now the President of the United States and his Justice Department (Eric Holder) have made themselves, at least morally if not legally, willful accessories after the fact to terroristic violence against the Armed Forces of the United States.

As reported by the Boston Globe

    After a federal judge ruled in 2007 that Iran was liable for $2.65 billion in damages to be shared by 150 families seeking restitution, they believed they were on the cusp of victory.But now, the Obama administration is going to court to try to block payments from Iranian assets that the families’ lawyers want seized, contending that it would jeopardize sensitive negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program and establish a potentially damaging precedent.In a little-noticed filing in federal court, the Justice Department is arguing that giving the money to the victims “can have significant, detrimental impact on our foreign relations, as well as the reciprocal treatment of the United States and its extensive overseas property holdings.’’…the US District Court in Washington found that Iran’s Ministry of Information and Security helped plan and facilitate the Oct. 23, 1983, attack.

     

What about rule of law, Eric Holder? Didn’t you swear to uphold the law when you took office? That is what you tell us all the time when you say your duty requires you to prosecute CIA personnel for alleged mistreatment of terrorists, although your duty apparently does not require you to investigate Barack Obama for illegal Internet gambling. The truth, Eric Holder, is that your “duty” seems to consist of selective enforcement of laws to meet the needs of Barack Obama. Eric Holder is the same individual who was involved in the pardon of alleged tax evader and Clinton donor Marc Rich.

The law, as interpreted by a Federal court, says that Iran is liable for its role in the murder of 241 United States Marines. Eric Holder and Barack Obama, however, wish to deny justice to the Marines’ families so they can appease the butchers of Tehran.
