Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin

Election Theft Underway in Wisconsin

By Thomas Lifson

More evidence the Obama Democrats are playing by Chicago rules, and rapidly altering the nature of our political regime. Nancy Pelosi's strong arm legislative tactics have metastasized to the state level in Wisconsin.

According to a Republican Wisconsin state senator, Democrats there plan to change the election rules in November with inadequate scrutiny. In other words, a stealth attack on the integrity of the electoral process. Like ObamaCare, this is a change-the-game legislative proposal that could not withstand scrutiny.

Wisconsin Senator Glenn Grothman alerts us that Democrats are trying to push a radical 72-page bill less than 16 hours after its hearing. He writes:

Senate Bill 640 [is] a bill which radically changes Wisconsin election law going into this year's election. The 72-page bill was not even introduced until March 23.

Senate Bill 640 makes many changes to Wisconsin election law including the following:
  • 1) The bill allows municipalities to set up satellite absentee ballot stations for early voting. These stations apparently could be done in college dorms, outside of bars, or other inappropriate locals.
  • 2) The current open government practice of allowing any citizen to challenge individual ballots would end as monitoring of elections of statewide or national significance would be restricted to people who live within that polling district.
  • 3) Permanent absentee ballot status would be established in which ballots would be sent to people who historically do not vote in low-turnout elections. Currently, permanent absentee ballot status is restricted to people who are confined because of age, physical illness, infirmity, or disabled infinitely making them unable to get to the polls.
  • 4) University IDs could be offered as proof of residence for registration and voting.
  • 5) The increased cost of processing and mailing out the additional absentee ballots is an unfunded mandate that local municipalities will not be able to absorb.
  • 6) Local municipalities will be forced to hire speakers of a foreign language if at least 5% of the adults in their district are not English proficient.
  • 7) The bill proposes to set up a statewide database of voters that the authors said they would hope to link up to a national database.

"This is a shocking power grab some extremist Democrats are trying to change our laws so that more unqualified voters are able to vote and so that we are not able to determine whether or not voting fraud in fact took place," said Grothman. "That is clearly the motivation behind trying to have a much larger number of permanent absentee voters as well as preventing an individual outside a polling place to object to inappropriate voting."

"Ironically, the voting change that most Wisconsin citizens request, Voter ID, is about the only thing not included in this far-reaching bill that is being fast-tracked through the State Legislature."

The far left has taken over the Democratic Party, and is aggressive changing the rules so as to entrench itself in power, regardless of the will of the people. The same Alinskyite mentality that rammed through ObamaCare. Rules are what you make the other guy live up to. ("We make ‘em upas we go along.")

Now, with the same anti-transparency approach used on ObamaCare, Wisconsin Democrats plan to close down scrutiny while they tailor election practices to benefit themselves.

Chicago rules ruthlessness coupled to a far left structural agenda. Precisely the brew that Saul Alinsky created when he began his work with community organizing on Chicago's South Side and took up residence in Hyde Park.

Our democratic process is being degraded, moving in a distinctly unpleasant direction: a ruling party rigging elections, paying off its allied groups, practicing predatory governance with regard to thebusiness class, which it regards as pariahs. A compliant media supplies propaganda extolling the leader, and framing the news to portray the governing class in the best light. Workers are kept in line with unions.

Are there any honest Democrats out there willing to denounce this hijacking of the electoral process? Those who claim to be thoughtful liberals ought to take a look at the corruption machines being designed in Wisconsin.

Tyranny creeps in one step at a time.

Bin laden and obama are same

See for yourself, and you make up your own mind.

Who is actually paying these people?

Have you driven by this gang on the side of the road? We see this every year during construction season. Maybe this is why these projects cost so much money, and who is paying for this, you me and all the other taxpayers. And if that isn't enough, these people all probably make more than you do, even the guy in the hole doing the only, actual work.

Listen up, we need to hear this

Racial profiling gone bad

When Are Americans Going To Stop Acting Like Sheep?
(Read WP posts from Melissa Clouthier) | (Read MT posts from Melissa Clouthier) | rss

Does anyone like the airport screening process? Does anyone believe it makes a lick of security difference? Does the screening process save us?

No, it gets us this:
That same screener started emptying her wallet. "He was taking out the receipts and looking at them," she said.

"I understand that TSA is tasked with strengthening national security but [it] surely does not need to know what I purchased at Kohl's or Wal-Mart," she wrote in her complaint, which she sent me last week.

She says she asked what he was looking for and he replied, "Razor blades." She wondered, "Wouldn't that have shown up on the metal detector?"

In a side pocket she had tucked a deposit slip and seven checks made out to her and her husband, worth about $8,000.

Her thought: "Oh, my God, this is none of his business."

Two Philadelphia police officers joined at least four TSA officers who had gathered around her. After conferring with the TSA screeners, one of the Philadelphia officers told her he was there because her checks were numbered sequentially, which she says they were not.

"It's an indication you've embezzled these checks," she says the police officer told her. He also told her she appeared nervous. She hadn't before that moment, she says.

She protested when the officer started to walk away with the checks. "That's my money," she remembers saying. The officer's reply? "It's not your money."

At this point she told the officers that she had a good explanation for the checks, but questioned whether she had to tell them.

"The police officer said if you don't tell me, you can tell the D.A."

How about these concepts? Probable cause. Search warrant. Personal property.

Just let passengers care for themselves. Riding a plane is like being a helpless sheep before the wolves of evil and also flight attendants, but I repeat myself. This screening is just an excuse to torment people.

The cost of War vs. Stimulus

Cost of War in Iraq & Afghanistan $1,070,064,542,199 (1.07 trillion)

Total cost of the stimulus package over $1.17 trillion

You do the math.

What do we see as the benefit of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? And then ask what benefit have we gotten from the stimulus?

The war is actually a better deal for the money we have spent. At least we have seen some improvement in the war on terror and the fate of the Iraqi people. But we have seen nothing from Obama's stimulus package, it seems as if the money has just gone down a black hole. They can't even account for it all. Our economy still stinks and umemployment hasn't changed, the real estate market is sluggish, and businesses are hoarding cash. So who's policies are the better bargain?

Where did this new found respect for religion come from? The liberals Dems have done everything they can to put restriction upon straight jacket on the practice of any religion (other than Islam) here in the United States. So Obama is a Christian, saying you are a Christian doesn't make you one, you need to practice the faith. In fact, for any religious faith, isn't it necessary to put your faith into action. Obama's only actions so far have been to throw road blocks up for the Christian faith he professes to uphold, and open arms and acceptance for Islam. Sound a little fishy to me. And since when is it a good thing to claim to be a Christian president? George Bush not only claimed it, but practiced it, and he got ROASTED by the liberal main stream media. I no longer trust our current administration, I no longer trust
the main stream mediocre media.

I am American not Amerikan

“Do you think Washington is broken? And the reason I ask you this, because when you appointed — you did the recess appointment of Donald Berwick. You seemed to send the message of one of two things. Either you didn’t want to debate about health care again on Capitol Hill, which got a little raucous a year ago or — you know what? — the Senate process is broken and we gotta go around it?”
— NBC’s Chuck Todd on the July 16 Today asking President Obama about his bypassing the Senate to install the pro-redistribution/pro-rationing Berwick as the new administrator of Medicare and Medicaid.

Oh my word!!! This is the most dangerous thing I have ever heard. Our founding fathers set up this government so that no one office could have total power, and now the media is asking if the process is broken. What process are they talking about? The libs are setting up the downfall of Congress? So that they can keep the power they have in the presidency. What next? Oh my Lord, that scares me more than anything they have done so far.
The libs hate the constitution, they won't secure the borders, they let the radical Muslims and blacks off the hook, they are indoctrinating our kids, they are growing the government, they are controlling the media, they have control of the courts, and they have around 40% of the population on the government dole. Eric Holder just announced that the Muslim community is helping in the fight against the threats of terrorism, and they are innocent Muslims. How can he keep his lunch down? Does he understand true Islam? And he calls the tea party followers terrorists?
We are being set up for despotism, with the Kenyan-born Illegal Obama being the intractable president, that cannot be voted out. What else will they try to control the population and hold onto their power? I will not stand by and let the libs tell me how to live my life. I am an American, not an Amerikan.

Interesting scenario, why do we do things legally again?

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes
$25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention...

$52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe
Legal now has $31,231.00.

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or
$31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has

his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline,

Jose Illegal has to make his $ 43,200.00. stretch to pay utilities,
gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.."actually
Jose illegal doesn't pay for most utilities in
many states as he gets county assistance to pay the bills and his late

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after
