FL TV Station Exposes Voter Fraud While DOJ Sues State to Stop Purging Rolls + Obama Looking to “Reduce” Deportations (Video)

It’s an election year, so Democrats are scurrying around looking for ways to encourage voter fraud, which they like to tell the weak minded – doesn’t happen.

Judicial Watch reports that while he Obama Justice Department is mounting a legal challenge against Florida for purging ineligible voters from its rolls, a local television news station has aired an eye-opening segment that proves that illegal immigrants regularly vote in the Sunshine state – a third degree felony with which few if any are ever charged.

Can someone give me one good reason why the Regime would oppose clean voter roles other than the fact that they would help prevent voter fraud?

The following investigative piece was recently aired by an NBC affiliate in southwest Florida that actually tracked down and interviewed non U.S. citizens who are registered to vote and have cast ballots in numerous elections. This is something any local news team in America could do if they were actually motivated to do something about voter fraud instead of covering up for it:

The segment focused on Lee County, which has a population of about 620,000 and Collier County with a population of around 322,000. The reporter spent about two months digging around the voter rolls in the two counties and the discoveries are dumbfounding.

In that short time, more than 100 people registered to vote in those two areas were proven to be ineligible by the reporter. A Cape Coral woman, eligible to vote in elections, was tracked down through jury excusal forms that verify she’s not a U.S. citizen. A Naples woman, who is not a U.S. citizen either, voted six times in 11 years without being detected by authorities. A Jamaican man is also registered to vote though he’s not eligible. The reporter obtained his 2007 voter registration form, which shows the Jamaican man claims to be a U.S. citizen. Problem is, no one bothers checking to see if applicants are being truthful.

In an effort to remedy the situation, Florida Governor Rick Scott launched a program a few years ago to purge ineligible voters from registration rolls. The Department of Justice (DOJ) was quick to sue the state to stop the purging because the agency claims it discriminates against minorities. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has colluded with the DOJ in Florida and the head of the group’s local chapter says purging voter rolls disproportionately affects the state’s most vulnerable groups, namely minorities.

Meanwhile, if you can believe this,  Obama is looking to further reduce the already  small percentage of illegal immigrants who are sent home each year.

Obama “has charged his Secretary of Homeland Security… to reduce where they can the levels of deportation,” Janet Murguia, president of the major Latino ethnic lobby group, the National Council of la Raza.

“Our hope and expectation is with that [policy change] would come some reduction in the level of deportations,” she told reporters gathered outside the White House Friday evening.

Those proposals would make it much harder for border or interior immigration agents to block or deport millions of previously deported illegals, if they try to return.

If her recommendations are accepted by Obama, annual deportations would drop by up to 50 percent, she suggested.

The Los Angeles Times reported that officials were considering a halt to deportations, unless an illegal immigrant commits a felony. Officials are also considering whether to end a program which helps federal immigration officials to pick up illegals arrested by state and local police forces.

Politico reported that the review of legal options began months ago, while Obama was urging House Speaker John Boehner to push an immigration-increase through the House.

Obama’s move to help illegal immigrants — many of whom are also living in households with legal immigrants — comes as he’s trying to boost November turnout among Latinos.

In 2012, Obama boosted turnout among naturalized immigrants by awarding work-permits to at least 500,000 younger illegal immigrants, even though Congress had repeatedly voted down similar proposals.

Obama may be using a similar turnout strategy in 2014, by simultaneously boosting hopes among Latinos for an amnesty, and resentment towards GOP legislators who oppose the unpopular amnesty.

As you know, the Regime has claimed for years that Obama deports more illegal immigrants than any other president. As usual they’re lying.

The truth is – ICE  has not been deporting illegal immigrants at a record pace. As Chris Crane, ICE Officer and President of the National ICE Council explained  at a press conference on Capitol Hill, last April; “at an alarming rate, deportation numbers have plummeted since 2008 – clear evidence that interior enforcement has in large part been shut down during the last four years. In an attempt to conceal ICE’s plummeting arrest and deportation statistics, massive numbers of border patrol apprehensions are being transferred to ICE to boost ICE’s statistical data.”

The truth is – virtually no one is being deported as it is. The Regime is merely getting ready to codify into law what they’ve already been doing for the past five years.

Because that’s how this Regime rolls.

Bart Stupak’s Pig In a Poke

stupak-as-chamberlain

I’ve held off on commenting on Bart Stupak because everything that needed to be said about him was said four years ago, and really, who wants to revisit that unpleasant, painful memory? I really don’t. It’s Lent, and I should be in a forgiving, charitable mood.

But then I remember how he was our only hope of defeating the ObamaCare monstrosity as he held out for statutory prohibitions on abortion funding. And he settled instead for a transparently fake fig-leaf of an  executive order that was unconstitutional and obviously fraudulent.

As a result his  political career came crashing to an end and now he’s telling us  he’s unhappy and feeling “double-crossed.” Was there ever a more aptly named congressman?

Today, as a private citizen, I’m proud to stand with the Green and Hahn families and their corporations, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, in seeking to uphold our most cherished beliefs that we, as American citizens, should not be required to relinquish our conscience and moral convictions in order to implement the Affordable Care Act. …

[W]e received an ironclad commitment that our conscience would remain free and our principles would be honored. With our negotiations completed and our legislative intent established by the colloquy, we agreed to an executive order directing federal agencies to respect America’s longstanding prohibitions on government funding of abortion and most relevant here, to respect longstanding protections for individuals and organizations conscientiously opposed to participating in or facilitating abortions.

I was deeply concerned and objected to the HHS mandate that required all health plans to cover all FDA-approved contraceptives, including four drugs and devices that could terminate human life at its earliest stages by preventing an embryo’s implantation in the womb. The FDA’s own labeling statements, as well as other studies, indicate that drugs such as the 5-day-after pill (Ella), as well as intrauterine devices (IUDs), may operate this way. The Greens and the Hahns cannot, in good conscience, risk subsidizing actions that may take human life.

He was also promised that no federal funding would go to pay for abortion under the health reform plans, yet that of course is happening. All of this was as predictable as the sun rising in the East.

Here’s what I said on March 21, 2010 – the Day Stup caved.

I can tell you right now; this won’t be worth the piece of paper it’s printed on. There is no one in politics today who is more viciously pro-abortion than Barack Obama, and every statement he makes comes with an expiration date.  If Obama was willing to lie to the Pope to his face about abortion, he certainly has no compunction about lying to Bart Stupak and his pro life stalwarts.

Tom Price called it “a pig in a poke” because he naively thought you couldn’t override legislation with an executive order. Way back in 2010 – that was considered beyond the pale.

A clearly disgusted Doug Ross, cut loose:

This bill fundamentally changes the relationship between the federal government and the people; and it does so in a despicably evil way. Health care will, there is no doubt, be wielded as a political weapon to reward and punish.

Congratulations, Bart Stupak and your so-called “Pro-Life” Democrat Caucus, you’ve sentenced the unborn generations of this country to misery, poverty and economic ruin. Way to stay true to your beliefs.

You aren’t pro-life, you’re low-lives.

Andrew McCarthy addressed the constitutionality  of the EO deal:

The Susan B. Anthony List observation that EOs can be rescinded at the president’s whim is of course true. This particuar EO is also a nullity — presidents cannot enact laws, the Supreme Court has said they cannot impoundfunds that Congress allocates, and (as a friend points out) the line-item veto has been held unconstitutional, so they can’t use executive orders to strike provisions in a bill. So this anti-abortion EO is blatant chicanery: if the pro-lifers purport to be satisfied by it, they are participating in a transparent fraud and selling out the pro-life cause.

Charles Krauthammer called the EO “worthless” and called Stupak’s cave “disappointing”…He said, “this is nationalizing health care. As of tonight, health insurance companies become agents of the government. Obama will be remembered as the father of nationalized health care.”

Michelle Malkin introduced us to next Congressman in Michigan’s 1st congressional district.

Meet Dan Benishek, Stupak’s GOP challenger in Michigan’s 1st congressional district. His campaign slogan: “You deserve better.”

The Daily Caller: Obama’s executive order that satisfied Stupak does absolutely nothing.

Of course, we were just a bunch of conservative crybabies bawling about being outmaneuvered by the clever and crafty ObaMessiah. After all ObamaCare was going to cover 30 million more people for less money and everybody would be able to keep their plans and keep their doctors and pay an average of $2,500 per family less a year in premiums.

The always behind the curve Bart Stupak continues to believe “the Affordable Care Act is critical to reforming our health care markets and providing a critical safety net for millions…”

Whatever, dude.

9/11-Style Terror Plot by Islamic jihadists Emerges in Connection with Disappearance of Malaysian airliner

Badat1-300x187

A few days ago a pilot told Neil Cavuto that he thought the missing Malaysian airliner  “Could Be a 9/11 Style Hijacking 12 Years Later.”

Now evidence of a plot by Malaysian al Qaeda-linked Islamists to hijack a passenger jet in a 9/11-style attack has come to light and is being investigated in connection with the disappearance of Flight MH370.

An al-Qaeda supergrass (informer) told a court last week that four to five Malaysian men had been planning to take control of a plane, using a bomb hidden in a shoe to blow open the cockpit door.

Security experts said the evidence from a convicted British terrorist was “credible”. The supergrass said that he had met the Malaysian jihadists – one of whom was a pilot – in Afghanistan and given them a shoe bomb to use to take control of an aircraft.

A British security source said: “These spectaculars take a long time in the planning.”

***

In evidence in a court case last Tuesday, Saajid Badat, a British-born Muslim from Gloucester, said that he had been instructed at a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan to give a shoe bomb to the Malaysians.

Giving evidence at the trial in New York of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, Badat said: “I gave one of my shoes to the Malaysians. I think it was to access the cockpit.”

Badat, who spoke via video link and is in hiding in the UK, said the Malaysian plot was being masterminded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the principal architect of 9/11.

According to Badat, Mohammed kept a list of the world’s tallest buildings and crossed out New York’s Twin Towers after the September 11, 2001 attacks with hijacked airliners as “a joke to make us laugh”.

Badat told the court last week that he believed the Malaysians, including the pilot, were “ready to perform an act.”

During the meeting, the possibility was raised that the cockpit door might be locked. Badat told the court: “So I said, ‘How about I give you one of my bombs to open a cockpit door?’ ”

The disclosure that Malaysians were plotting a 9/11-style attack raises the prospect that both pilots were overpowered and the plane intended for use as a fuel-filled bomb. One possible target, if the scenario is correct, will have been the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, a symbol of Malaysia’s modernity and the world’s tallest buildings from 1998 until 2004.

Flight MH370 had been heading away from Kuala Lumpur over the South China Sea when it disappeared off civilian radar screens.

Satellites have tracked it returning towards land.

Badat, who was jailed for 13 years in 2005 for his part in a conspiracy with the “shoe bomber” Richard Reid to blow up a transatlantic jet, had given similar evidence in 2012.

In other words, his claims were first made long before the disappearance of Flight MH370.

Robert Spencer notes that just weeks ago, DHS issued a new warning about shoe bombs on airplanes.

All this despite being told by Obama that the War on Terror is over.

Video: Teen Surprises News Anchor Who Helped Get Him Adopted

A news anchor had been doing a  ‘Wednesday’s Child’ weekly segment  for many years, and upon her retirement was remembering one little boy who had been difficult to place, but had finally found a home with a wonderful, loving family.

During her 25-year run of the feature, she shared the stories of some 350 children and 75 percent of them found adoptive families, according to the outlet.

Via Fox 4 News:

According to the Huffington Post, the segment, which was taken over by anchor Gloria Campos in 1989, featured children who had been in foster care and were looking to be placed in permanent homes.

Back in 2007 she featured the story of Ke’onte Cook who was eight-years-old at the time. The first home she was able to get him placed in didn’t work out, so two years later she gave him another opportunity to be a part of the segment.

The now 14-year-old Cook was adopted and has been living happily with those parents, Carol and Scott Cook, ever since. He surprised the anchor by walking on the set to give her an on-air special thank you.

Get out your Kleenex….

Your Sunday Hymn: Have mercy upon me, O God

Have Mercy Upon Me O God was written by William Byrd a 16th century composer of  Renaissance music. He wrote various types of sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard, and consort music. He produced sacred music for use in Anglican services, although later, he became a Roman Catholic and wrote Catholic sacred music as well.

You will be transported by this lovely hymn performed sublimely by The Rose Consort of Viols, Tessa Bonner, Timothy Roberts & Red Byrd.

This is as good as it gets.
