Dead People Voted in South Carolina

The corruption in the primary process of the republican primaries continues unchallenged. Just as it happened in Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina was another example of why the establishment maintains control of elections. When fraud is not enabled through rigged voting machines, it is done by allowing dead people to vote.

In Iowa, after Mitt Romney was declared the winner, the republican party representatives recounted the votes and changed their winner. Rick Santorum was called the winner, even though there were votes lost in two precincts in that state. In this state, the counting of the votes wasn’t even properly certified. The republicans simply announced a winner; whoever they decided to declare as the winner.

In New Hampshire, again dead people voted and the accounting of the votes was even less clear. According to Bev Harris, from BlackboxVoting.org, an organization that monitors the fair accounting of votes, especially those counted with Diebold machines, warned about voting fraud in this northern state as well as in South Carolina. In our article Fair Elections? Not if Corporations Control the Vote Count, we exposed how elections are remotely controlled at  ClarityElections.com. The SOE software that is used to “count” the votes allows for the easy alteration of the totals. Mrs. Harris warned that after SCYTL and SOE systems merged, people would have to trust one single source for counting the votes, “an Internet voting system controlled by SCYTL, with a results reporting system also controlled by SCYTL.”

Today, WTOC 11 reports that according to the state of South Carolina’s Attorney General some 953 ballots cast by voters actually belonged to dead folks. “Already, there has been some question into folks who cast their ballots on Saturday. South Carolina’s Attorney General, Alan Wilson has notified the U.S. Justice Department of potential voter fraud. Wilson says an analysis found 953 ballots cast by voters were people who are listed as dead. He has asked the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate.”

The level of fraud is such in these primary elections that many in the mainstream believe such fraud is a wide open attempt to steal the election from the real winning candidate. In his article Iowa Vote Fraud Official, Jeffrey Phelps explains how the establishment is working to avoid a more influential role for republican candidate Ron Paul. This all happens, says Phelps “as Iowa GOP ‘officials’ purposely disrupt and permanently invalidate the 2012 Iowa Caucus.” According to him, the official caucus website in Iowa publicly states that the caucus results can never be officially certified, because 8 different precincts showed signs of fraud that included missing votes and stories that changed every time someone challenged them.

But instead of dedicating time and resources to investigating this fraud, republican party officials have simply decided to ignore them and move on. In fact, says Phelps “for the first time in history, the Iowa GOP decided to change the final vote count to a “Secret location” for what was claimed to be security concerns.” This action did not prevent the fraud, however. Several voters in the caucus publicly complained that the number of votes in several precincts, as reported by party officials, did not correspond to the number of Iowans they had counted at the voting place.

How can americans trust their election systems if voting cannot be certified as legitimate and party officials refuse to investigate clear examples of fraud and vote manipulation? It simply cannot be trusted.

Meanwhile, the voting fraud continued  in New Hampshire, where the attorney general also probed voter fraud as activists got ballots as dead people because they weren’t  ID’ed. According to Mark Hayward from UnionLeader.com, Associate Attorney General Richard Head confirmed his office had learnt about the possible fraud on election day and immediately began investigating. “That investigation is ongoing,” he said. “Based on the information received on Election Day and the information on the video, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of voting procedures with the Secretary of State,” reports UnionLeader.com.

These cases of fraud as just the tip of the iceberg. Dozens of cases have been reported by local media, but they have been widely ignored by their main stream colleagues, who have limited themselves to report what the Republican Party establishment says. In most cases, proven cases of irregularities have been deemed as insignificant by news networks.

Back in South Carolina, the fraud extends beyond the limits of anything seen in Iowa and New Hampshire. According to Brandon Turbeville, from Activist Post,  people who witnessed the certification of the vote are now questioning if the results are the consequence of voter fraud. “Although no one is pointing fingers at the Gingrich campaign, or any other campaign at this point, the anomalies that are arising from the accounts of eyewitnesses call into question the certainty and the credibility of the final count in South Carolina,” reports Tuberville.

Some of the most contested precincts include Pickens County. It is here where voter Chris Lawton suspects the counting procedure did not follow established guidelines and therefore the results are questionable. Mr. Lawton was kept away from the room where the counting was actually done. He was asked to remain vigilant outside of the room. But when he questioned where were the votes coming from, he was simply told some 746 votes had been brought in early in the morning, when no one was watching. Mr. Lawton was then asked to leave the secured counting room.

I guess George Carlin was right, wasn’t he? Warning: Adult Language.

 

Until when will Americans be like those described by George Carling?

Ron Paul ad reveals Santorum’s ” Record of Betrayal”

Ron Paul has come out whacking after his successful result in Iowa. This time, Paul’s campaign hit Rick Santorum. The ad that criticizes Santorum record of betrayal and hypocrisy in Washington is set to be aired in South Carolina, where Santorum is trying to ride the wave of his questionable meteoric second place in Iowa.

The video uses similar words to those used in previous ads where the Paul campaign accused Newt Gingrich of hypocrisy and lies. “One serial hypocrite exposed,” says the narrator, while reminds voters of Newt Gingrich‘s shady record. “Now another has emerged: Rick Santorum, a corporate lobbyist and Washington politician. A record of betrayal.”

See the video below:

 

Rick Santorum began attacking Ron Paul a week before the Iowa caucus and the Paul campaign is now playing fire with fire as it exposes Santorum’s past as a fake conservative, who helped run up the deficit by supporting an increase in the debt ceiling.

Right now, Ron Paul is strongly holding second in New Hampshire, only behind long time favorite Mitt Romney. These two campaigns have not exchanged attacks so far in the race, but it is expected that as both Romney and Paul continue to go head to head on the following primaries, both the mainstream media as well as GOP Establishment organizations will increase their attacks on Paul.

Previous attacks by CNN and FoxNews included questions about Ron Paul’s “racism” that they said originated from 20-year-old newsletters that Paul did not write or agreed with. Attacks from fellow candidates such as Michelle Bachmann told of Paul’s “dangerous” beliefs. According to Bachmann and Santorum, the fact Paul does not want to bomb every country on this planet is insane and should be considered as a threat to the United States’  national security.

Previous to Ron Paul getting an equal amount of delegates in Iowa as Romney and Santorum got, attacks by the mainstream media and talking heads included unfounded beliefs such as that Ron Paul could not win, could not be elected, could not beat Obama, was not supported by the troops, and so on. Today, as Americans and the world have learned, Paul has been elected as a representative numerous times, became a top tier candidate, tied with Romney for first place -in the number of delegates- in Iowa, gets more cash and support from the troops than all other candidates combined, is second in New Hampshire and fourth place in South Carolina.

The Paul campaign will invest $250,000 on the ad buy which will begin playing in South Carolina on Monday.

Ron Paul Taking Second Place in New Hampshire

Newt Gingrich’s surge has slowed and Ron Paul has gained momentum, but Mitt Romney remains the clear front-runner in New Hampshire with a little more than two weeks until the nation’s first primary, according to a new Boston Globe poll.

Romney has the support of 39 percent of the state’s likely Republican voters, a drop of 3 percentage points since last month but a strong indication he is weathering Gingrich’s national comeback in a state vital to his campaign.

In the closely watched contest for second place, Gingrich and Paul are tied with 17 percent each, just ahead of Jon Huntsman, who has the support of 11 percent of likely Republican voters.

But as the race hurtles toward the Jan. 10 primary, Paul has been gaining the most in New Hampshire. His support has risen by 5 percentage points since November, while Huntsman has picked up 3 percentage points in the last month and Gingrich has gained 2.

The momentum for Paul raises the prospect that he, not Gingrich, could emerge as the strongest early challenger to Romney if the Texas congressman can hold on to his lead in Iowa and capture second place in New Hampshire.

The remainder of the Republican field remains largely sidelined in New Hampshire. Rick Santorum is in fourth place, with support from 3 percent of the state’s likely Republican voters, followed by Michele Bachmann at 2 percent and Rick Perry at 1 percent.

Buddy Roemer, a former Louisiana governor, and Gary Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, who have campaigned in New Hampshire but been ignored nationally, each drew less than 1 percent in the poll.

The live telephone survey of 543 likely Republican voters was conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center between Dec. 12 and Dec. 19, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

The survey indicated that, even as Gingrich has rebounded nationally from his campaign’s implosion last summer, the contours of the race have remained largely unchanged over the last two years in New Hampshire, where polls have consistently shown Romney with a sizable lead.

Andrew E. Smith, director of the Survey Center, attributed Romney’s enduring strength in New Hampshire to an electorate that is largely composed of moderate Republicans and independents, not party activists, evangelicals, and core conservatives who wield more influence in Iowa, South Carolina, and Florida.

Romney, who owns a home in New Hampshire and has the backing of most of the party establishment, has campaigned frequently in the state, presenting himself as a sort of friendly neighbor from Massachusetts.

Ron Paul Most Likely to Beat Obama in General Election

Paul leads Obama 42 percent to 35 percent among independent voters.

With less than a month before the Iowa caucus, GOP presidential candidate and  former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has surged into the lead, but  Texas Rep. Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who could best President  Obama, a new Iowa poll says.

According to the latest NBC/Marist poll, Gingrich is the first choice among  26 percent of Republican caucus-goers, followed by former Massachusetts Gov.  Mitt Romney with 18 percent and Paul with 17 percent.

The poll represents a dramatic shift in the race. In October, Romney led the  field in Iowa with 26 percent, while Gingrich only received a paltry 5 percent  of the vote.

With Herman Cain’s announcement on Saturday that he would suspend his  campaign, the NBC/Marist poll predicted that Gingrich’s support will increase to  to 28 percent, while Romney and Paul tie at 19 percent.

“As the roller coaster picks up speed in the month leading up to the Iowa  caucus, Newt Gingrich has moved into the lead car,” said Dr. Lee M.  Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, in  a statement. “Hold on tight for any further twists and turns.”

However, the poll also says Paul is the candidate best suited to face Obama  in an election.

Against Paul, 42 percent of registered voters in Iowa support Obama and the same number — 43 percent — support Paul. Paul’s popularity among independents could be a  crucial advantage. Paul leads Obama 42 percent to 35 percent among independent  voters, according to the poll, and he also attracts 15% of Iowa’s Democrats. Not  to mention that 16 percent of voters were undecided.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul has  surged to second place in a new Iowa poll of likely Republican caucus goers,  just one percent behind former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the current  front-runner.

Paul has consistently placed in the top tier of Republican presidential  candidates in recent Iowa polls. With Iowans heading to vote in only three  weeks, Gingrich holds a razor-thin 22–21 lead.

The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, found weakening support for  Gingrich among self-identified tea partiers, and a dramatic rise in Paul’s  favorability rating.

“There are a lot of parallels between Paul’s strength in Iowa and Barack  Obama’s in 2008 — he’s doing well with new voters, young voters, and  non-Republican voters,” said PPP in an explanation of its poll’s findings.

Paul has taken aim at Gingrich with an ad alleging “serial hypocrisy” for  changing his positions on a variety of issues, including health care and global  warming. The  ad also targeted him for accepting millions from Freddie Mac, and  for calling a budget proposal from Wisconsin GOP Rep. Paul Ryan “right-wing social  engineering.”

Gingrich’s favorability rating has declined 19 points among Iowans since  last week.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney placed third in the poll, at 16  percent. He was followed by Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann at 11 percent, Texas  Gov. Rick Perry at 9 percent, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum at 8  percent and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman at 5 percent.
