Hard to Deny Voter Fraud After This Incident!

Given mounting evidence across the country, including MA, the noise about pushing for Voter ID laws to eliminate voter fraud should be getting louder and louder—so loud that the cacophonous  truth can no longer be ignored by the doubters or the main-stream media.

Sub-link to the actual video showing how easy it was to get Holder’s ballot to vote: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/04/09/Okeefe-Holder

Quoted From Breitbart News:

“O’Keefe Voter Fraud Investigation: Young Man Offered Holder’s Ballot”

by Breitbart News 7 hours ago 682post a comment

“U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has declared that there is no proof that in-person voter fraud is a problem. He’s about to see proof that even he can’t deny.

In a new video (below) provided to Breitbart.com, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates why Holder should stop attacking voter ID laws–by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s primary ballot. Literally.

The video shows a young man entering a Washington, DC polling place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW, on primary day of this year–April 3, 2012–and giving Holder’s name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder’s ballot to vote.

The young man then suggests that he should show his ID; the poll worker, in compliance with DC law, states: ‘You don’t need it. It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.’

The young man replies: ‘I would feel more comfortable if I just had my ID. Is it alright if I go get it?’ The poll worker agrees.

‘I’ll be back Faster than you can say Furious,’ the young man jokes on his way out, in a reference to the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal that has plagued Holder’s Department of Justice.

Holder has maintained that voter fraud is not a major problem in the United States, and that voter ID would not curb voter fraud in any case.

As Project Veritas has proven, voter fraud is easy and simple–and may be increasingly common in the absence of voter ID laws.

Project Veritas has already shown how dead people can vote in New Hampshire, prompting the state senate to pass a voter ID law; they’ve also shown people can use celebrity names like Tim Tebow and Tom Brady to vote in Minnesota, prompting the state legislature to put voter ID on the ballot as a constitutional amendment.”

Bold Education Overhaul in Louisana:

Even most of the “best” public school systems in our state and country are overflowing with liberal agenda, and the “tenure system” of retaining teachers in the public sector, some of whose creative spark and drive to excel burned out long ago, is damaging to kids’ opportunity for a truly superior education.  Sorely needed and long overdue, is education reform that ensures really effective teachers are educating all American children.  Replacing tenure with merit pay incentives encourage high-quality teaching and weed out those not up to the challenge, but making this change is a tough, up-hill battle all the way.  Louisiana has begun the climb.  This is an excerpt from a FreedomWorks article:

“On April 4th, after months of hard work, FreedomWorks activists celebrated as the Louisiana State Senate finally passed HB976 and HB974, two bills that mark a historic overhaul of the state’s education system.  The HB976 legislation creates a market-based school choice system, creating vouchers for children to escape failing schools and allowing an easier pathway to creation of charter schools with a ‘parent trigger’ program.  The HB974 legislation completely overhauls the teacher tenure system in Louisiana, rewarding only effective educators and provides financial incentives for those performing above expectation.  HB974 also eliminates ‘automatic’ teacher tenure for new teachers entering the school service.”

Supreme Court Slammed by President:

Here are excerpts from an article in The Foundry, an arm of the Heritage Foundation, that seem to indicate that the reckless disregard for the Constitution and the American people, exercised by the 111th Congress and the administration when putting Obamacare in place, may finally be coming back to confront them:

Obama Slams Supreme Court over Obamacare”  –  “The highest elected official in the United States dished out an extra helping of irony yesterday when, in speaking at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Barack Obama slammed the Supreme Court as an ‘unelected group of people’ who will have turned to ‘judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint’ if they strike down Obamacare.   The President’s remarks imply that the Court, were it to rule the individual mandate unconstitutional, would be acting recklessly in undertaking judicial review of Congress’ unprecedented use of the Commerce Clause to force Americans to buy health care or pay a penalty. The irony in all this is that this President has presided over an Administration that is the epitome of recklessly abusing power, at times in flagrant violation of the Constitution, and has empowered unelected bureaucrats to write scads of new regulations impacting nearly every corner of American life.”  Read the entire article at:  http://blog.heritage.org/2012/04/03/morning-bell-obama-slams-supreme-court-over-obamacare/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Morning%2BBell

The Fifth Circuit of Appeals asked for a written response from Attorney General Holder explaining the President’s comments.  The AG did his “homework” as Yahoo reported and you can read about the request & response at these websites:     http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/04/03/judges-order-justice-department-to-clarify-following-obama-remarks-on-health/     and    http://news.yahoo.com/eric-holder-submits-homework-5th-circuit-court-183517164.html    and    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/04/04/justice-department-under-deadline-to-answer-court-over-obamas-health-law/

Some Quotes from a Heritage article entitled, “The Highest Taxes in the World”:

The Highest Taxes in the World” – “There aren’t many American-owned companies more iconic than Anheuser-Busch, the famous producer of Budweiser beer based in St. Louis, Missouri. That was true up until 2008, when the Brazilian-Belgian company InBev executed a hostile takeover of the historic brewer, leading to layoffs of more than 1,800 workers. Unfortunately, conditions in the United States are growing ripe for even more takeovers like these to occur, especially now that the nation’s corporate tax rate is officially the highest in the world.  As of yesterday, the U.S. corporate tax rate of 39.2 percent claimed the world’s top spot, edging out Japan which recently lowered its rate from 39.5 percent to 36.8 percent. (The U.S. rate includes the 35 percent federal rate plus the average rate the states add on.) That’s well above the 25 percent average of other developed nations. Heritage’s Curtis Dubay explains the impact on companies based in the United States[.]”   The article goes on to say that “Unfortunately, in the face of this tax rate, the Obama Administration is proposing measures that will make matters even worse for U.S. companies. Last week, Vice President Joe Biden proposed a “global minimum tax” in a wrongheaded effort to encourage companies to invest in the United States instead of overseas.”

Rebuilding America’s “Infrastructure” CREATES JOBS for AMERICANS…RIGHT?…WRONG!

Some may be shocked by what’s happening here—not everyone of course—although it’s hard to believe that the main-stream media is actually reporting it.  Bridge projects right here in our own country are going to Chinese contractors instead of American ones while unemployment numbers are still at an all-time high.  Hopefully enough American workers will be outraged enough to let their ballots do their talking in November!

Senator Scott Brown on Secure Communities:

I Support Secure Communities

LOWELL SUN
Scott Brown
April 5, 2012
http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_20331116/i-support-secure-communities?IADID=Search-www.lowellsun.com-www.lowellsun.com

I always have supported legal immigration. I believe the arrival of new people to our shores has strengthened us as a country. But we are also a nation of laws and even as we say yes to legal immi­gration, we must take steps to end illegal immigration.

Illegal immigration erodes respect for the law and it compro­mises our ability to maintain secure borders. One of the ways we can address the problem of ille­gal immigration is through pro­grams like Secure Communities.

Over the last year, our state has experi­enced a series of violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants who had no business being in the country in the first place. Last summer, three tragic deaths in Brockton and Milford highlighted the clear need to iden­tify and deport people who come here ille­gally and then commit new crimes. In Brock­ton, a woman and her child were murdered.

In Milford, a man was killed by a drunken driver. In both cases, the perpetrators were in the country illegally and had previous run-ins with the law. If these individuals had been deported following their previous arrests, it’s possible the lives of three people could have been saved.

As a state, we need to make every effort to prevent tragedies like this from happen­ing again. That is why I support Secure Communities, and believe that Massachu­setts needs to be fully participating in this very important program.

Secure Communities would allow for bet­ter information sharing of arrest records and immigration status between local and fed­eral authorities. It would give local law enforcement the ability to immediately ver­ify the immigration status of individuals who have been arrested and hold them until federal authorities intervene to begin deportation proceedings.

This week, I spent time with Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis and Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson, visiting their prison facilities, hearing their concerns and learning what tools they need from the federal government to do their jobs and keep the public safe. They both told me that Secure Communities would instantaneously improve public safety, and better enable them to keep violent criminal offenders behind bars.

As a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, I have worked closely on immigration issues at the federal level. On multiple occasions, I have asked President Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, for her opinion on the program and she said, “We really need Secure Communities.” My likely opponent in November, Elizabeth Warren, has a different view. She opposes Secure Communities. She also opposes a border fence, and supports in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

This is not fair to the millions of legal immigrants who are waiting patiently to come into the country, and it is not fair to Massachusetts taxpayers. In my view, the way to end illegal immigration is by securing the border, shutting off the magnets like in­state tuition and drivers licenses and imple­menting programs like Secure Communities. Illegal immigration undermines legal immigration, and we must work to reform the system, but in the meantime, we need to keep these dangerous criminals off the street and prevent tragedies like we experi­enced in Brockton and Milford from ever happening again. Secure Communities is an important tool for sheriffs and law-enforce­ment officials across Massachusetts.
