Deceptive Progressive Hype

March 30, 2015

Once again, we find progressives and the liberal media intentionally misleading the public. The current hype and furor over Indiana’s “Religious Freedom Law” is the latest in a long history of deliberate deception used to sway public opinion.

Indiana’s law simply says that no one can be forced to do something that is against their religion unless the state has a “compelling interest” to do so – and if one is compelled, the issue can be taken to the courts for a decision. This is not discriminatory or anti-gay. It just reaffirms one’s freedom of religion and it is very similar to laws already in place in 30 other states.

This law, like many other laws, could be misinterpreted and wrongly used in a discriminatory manner by nefarious individuals, but it is not discriminatory by itself and allows legal action to be taken if it used in that manner. Progressives know this but are deliberately misinterpreting the law to advance their agenda.

Unfortunately, this is a proven progressive tactic. It conditioned much of the public into believing decriminalization of marijuana is the same as legalization. It caused many to believe there really is a “war on women” and the police are all racists. It made immigration reform synonymous with amnesty and it convinced many that “access” to health insurance never existed for those unwilling to pay for it.

It is now trying to convince us that: Hillary did nothing wrong by erasing emails; Iran can be trusted with a nuclear program; Israel is the problem in the Middle East; Obama’s foreign policies have been successful; Obamacare is working well; Voter ID is voter suppression; and the economy is in great shape.

It is all liberal hype and it only works because both the White House and the mainstream media push it, repeating the hype over and over again until it becomes “fact”. It is nothing short of systematic brainwashing – the same brainwashing we saw in repressive countries and thought could never happen here.

If people continue voting to make history, hype will be all there is.

Holder To Monitor Polls

November 4, 2014

A recent video filmed in North Carolina from James O’Keefe, president of the Project Veritas Action Group, showed that states requiring no ID for voting provide an easy opportunity for fraudulent voting on a massive scale.

Colorado’s new election system allows voting by mail, same-day registration, ballots sent to every registered voter (who may not have voted in years), and “ballot harvesting” where one individual can collect the ballots of up to 10 people and drop them off. There is no way of monitoring that 10-ballot drop-off or the many other flaws in the system.

Voting machines in Illinois and Maryland have been found with what has been called a “calibration issue” that electronically switched votes for Republicans over to Democrats. Florida is on the look-out to prevent absentee ballot fraud which has plagued the state in recent years. A man in New Mexico tried to vote and found that an imposter had already voted in his place.

These are just some of the known voting issues defying the left’s claim that voter fraud is non-existent, yet, they scream that voter ID is voter suppression with no proof at all. One can guess what they would scream if those voting machines in Illinois and Maryland were switching Democrat votes to Republicans.

Not to worry, though, because U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending poll monitors to 18 states to be on the look-out for…race-based discrimination. He didn’t find it in Philadelphia when members of the Black Panthers carrying nightsticks were intimidating voters at the polls in 2008, but he’ll keep looking until he does find it – because he “believes” it’s there.

Holder is stuck on race and has turned the entire Justice Department into a race-based organization. He believes that voter ID laws are racist even though ID is required for almost everything, including attendance at an NAACP rally. He doesn’t recognize how demeaning it is to treat the black community incapable of obtaining an ID. He should have been gone long ago.

You Can’t Make This Up

In North Carolina, NAACP protesters against voter ID laws were highly advised to bring photo IDs to the protest.

Yes, Voter Fraud Exists

March 12, 2013

A shrill, indignant cry from the left has been that voter ID is unnecessary and it is only being advocated by conservatives in order to disenfranchise voters of the Democrat Party, particularly minority voters. “Where is all this ‘supposed’ voter fraud?” so many liberals ask.

Enter Obama supporter Melowese Richardson, a Cincinnati poll worker no less, who admitted casting her vote twice for Obama and is now being indicted for allegedly voting at least six times. She says she had no intent to commit voter fraud and further asserted: “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States”. There’s another assumed “right” conceived by ignorance and self-righteousness.

Lest one believe that this is just an isolated case, there are two others in that same district being indicted for voter fraud. Further recent evidence of voter fraud can also be found in Jacksonville, Cedar Rapids, and a South Florida internet absentee ballot attempt – among many others. Also, it occurs on both sides of the aisle, evidenced by two employees of a GOP-tied firm in Florida being found guilty of voter fraud.

Requiring voter ID is certainly not the solution to all voter fraud, but it is a common sense measure that is long overdue. Everyone knows voter fraud occurs. How can it not when anyone can show up at the voting booth claiming to be someone else? Those pretending it does not happen do so only to protect the practice. The screaming denial from the left shows how important  fraud at the voting booth is to their agenda. They need it as much as they need denial. The country has had enough of both.
