Democrats Want 2016 Presidential Election By Fraud
By Kevin Roeten
Illegal immigrants are likely the way Democrats want to secure a 2016 presidential vote. With the media giving 24/7 coverage to the federal shutdown and debt-ceiling standoff, other important news slipped under the radar.
Over the past few months activists have been arrested demonstrating outside the Capitol, demanding action on legalizing illegal immigrants. The administration deports about 400,000 illegals/yr. In Phoenix, illegals clamed all deportations should unilaterally halt, until all illegals are ‘legalized’. That includes the 12 million already in the U.S. .
Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) said only 10.8 percent of the ‘detainers’ Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued in the first six months of this year were for those having serious threats to public safety. Then, TRAC claimed 38 percent of those whom ICE put in deportation proceedings had a criminal record, including traffic violations.
A certain way to achieve near-perfect election results with all the illegals now in the country, is to ensure only American citizens vote in an American election. The best way to accomplish fraud-free elections is to have voters supply voter IDs when voting. But Democrats are vigorously waging a holy-war on voter-ID laws. Attorney General Eric Holder, wanting elimination of voter-ID, contends such laws are designed solely to “suppress” minority votes.
The Left has begun to claim voter-ID law massively discriminates. It seems the ‘Left’ refuses to believe Martin Luther King Jr. always emphasized fairness, so he likely would have supported voter-ID laws, since everyone is treated equally, and these laws protect everyone’s vote.
Federal Election Reform
President Carter and James Baker co-chaired Federal Election Reform (2005) [Building Confidence in U.S. Elections] which strongly recommended voter-ID laws to ensure election integrity. But many Democrats who had supported voter-ID laws, suddenly lost interest.
Recently the commission (headed by James Baker) stated: “We are recommending a photo-ID system for voters designed to increase the registration with a more affirmative and aggressive role for states in finding new voters and providing free IDs for those without driver’s licenses.” The commission also urged states to clean up their registrations, which is required under the National Voter Registration Act, better known as “Motor Voter.”
In June 2012, Obama’s Justice Department, spearheaded by Thomas Perez (Civil Rights Division) sued Florida for purging its noncitizens. Secretary of State (Fl) Ken Detzner sued the Department of Homeland Security requiring citizenship verification of registered voters. The Department relented. A year later, Florida Gov. Scott (R) announced voter rolls would be cleaned up—which greatly upset liberals.
From the Carter/Baker Report: “Voter identification can enhance ballot integrity without raising barriers to voting. Voters in nearly 100 democracies use a photo-identification card without fear of or infringement on their rights. The electoral system cannot inspire public confidence if no safeguards exist to deter or detect fraud or to confirm the identity of voters. Photo IDs currently are needed to board a plane, enter federal buildings, and cash a check. Voting is equally important.”
It’s not hateful, or racist, to require an ID for voting, as is done for dozens of varying everyday transactions.
On Sept. 30, the Justice Department sued North Carolina over its new voter-ID law, and is threatening to sue other states. An unbiased onlooker would get the impression the Obama administration is totally hostile to clean elections.
A major reason Democrats changed their mind recently about voter-ID, was because they understood the boon from illegal fraudulent voting was a sure way to elect a Democrat—especially for the presidency.
Voter ID Desperately Needed
Mike Baker’s two columns discussing the same point: [Why voter ID is needed: dogs and dead people recruited to vote ... ], and [Study: 1 in 8 US voter registrations have errors | Politics | KATU.com ... . This latest report (James Simpson) reveals the Left’s vote-fraud strategy during 2012 elections [The Left's National Vote Fraud Strategy Exposed - Accuracy in Media …].
It looks as if elimination of the ‘Consent Decree’ [GOP legally barred from fighting vote fraud – WorldNetDaily] may be our last, best hope, to obtain a fraud-free election.
