Obama Fighting Latest States Passing Voter ID laws – UPDATED!

Thanks to ACORN type of registration fraud and the dead voting in larger numbers in some areas, including some precincts that cast more votes than said precincts have voters, over 34 states have now introduced and/or passed laws saying that you must have ID when you vote.

The Democrats  oppose such laws because they say that they are racist, but the courts have not been sympathetic to such arguments. The Supreme Court has held up Indiana’s voter ID law and Obama’s Justice Department knows very well that eventually their court challenges will lose, but the goal is to enable as much vote fraud as they can until after the election.

Yahoo/AP News:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department’s civil rights division on Monday objected to a new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification.

Texas follows South Carolina as the second state in recent months to become embroiled in a court battle with the Justice Department over new photo ID requirements for voters.

Photo ID laws have become a point of contention in the 2012 elections. Liberal groups have said the requirements are the product of Republican-controlled state governments and are aimed at disenfranchising people who tend to vote Democratic — African-Americans, Hispanics, people of low-income and college students.

Proponents of such legislation say the measures are aimed at combating voter fraud. But advocacy groups for minorities and the poor dispute that and argue there is no evidence of significant voter fraud.

In regard to Texas, “I cannot conclude that the state has sustained its burden” of showing that the newly enacted law has neither a discriminatory purpose nor effect, Thomas E. Perez, the head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, said in a letter to the Texas secretary of state.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot has said the Obama administration is hostile to laws like the one passed last year in Texas.

The National Conference of State Legislatures called the voter ID issue “the hottest topic of legislation in the field of elections in 2011,” with legislation introduced in 34 states.

UPDATE – O’Keefe video exposes voter fraud friendly Vermont – LINK

On Vermont Primary Day, Project Veritas sent a team of investigators into polling places throughout the state with a list of both deceased and still-living voters to see if they would be permitted to vote without presenting a photo ID.

Our team tested multiple polling places, simply walking up and stating the name of the registered voter and in all cases — they were offered ballots.

While our investigators cast no votes and returned the ballots, there was nothing stopping our team, or anyone else, from illegally influencing the outcome of a presidential primary.

In fact, as shown in the video, Project Veritas investigators insisted on presenting identification in order to vote, but were told repeatedly, “you don’t need it.”

One investigator was eerily told, “We believe you.” In contrast, Project Veritas’ team also tested the integrity of other establishments in Vermont: Bars and Hotels.  Our investigators were repeatedly turned away for their failure to present a photo ID.

Watch the video for yourself here.

UPDATE II – Pew Research Center – Voter rolls are a shambles:

• At least 51 million eligible citizens remain unregistered—more than 24 percent of the eligible population.

• Nearly 2 million deceased individuals are listed as voters.

• Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.

• About 12 million records have incorrect addresses, meaning either the voters moved, or errors in the information make it unlikely any mailings can reach them.

Hamas Rocket Ranges Map

 

Via The Republican Security Council:

RON PAUL STANDS ALONE: That is the tagline of his most popular TV ad and it is absolutely correct.

He is the only Republican Member of Congress who believes Hamas should be allowed unlimited shipments of new weapons. He is the only one who condemns Israel, wants to lift sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran, and believes they should be allowed to develop nuclear weapons.

Iran does not want peace. Their president has said he wants Israel wiped off the map, but Ron Paul stood alone in opposing the resolution condemning Ahmadinejad.

Iran continues to train, fund and equip Hamas. Even children are trained to be terrorists. Israel gave them Gaza in 2005, and since that time they have given Israel over 12,000 rocket attacks.

There have been over 200 attacks in the past few days. IDF Chief Benny Gantz has just announced classes have been canceled in all southern communities located within a 24 mile radius of the Gaza Strip.

Ron Paul has said if he was president during World War II, he would not have done anything about the Holocaust. If he is president next year, he has said he would not do anything if Israel is attacked.

Newt Gingrich leads in Alabama and Mississippi polls.

Weekly Standard:
PPP reports on its latest poll of Republican voters in Mississippi:

In Mississippi Newt Gingrich is holding on to a slight lead with 33% to 31% for Mitt Romney, 27% for Rick Santorum, and 7% for Ron Paul…

In Mississippi Gingrich’s net favorability is +33 (62/29) to +32 for Santorum (60/28) and +10 for Romney (51/41)…

In Mississippi 44% of voters describe themselves as ‘very conservative’ and Romney’s getting only 26% with them. But he’s still in the mix because Gingrich leads Santorum only 35-32 with them…

In Mississippi folks who’ve decided in the last few days go for Gingrich over Santorum 37-29 with Romney at only 15%.

The Mississippi presidential primary will be held tomorrow, Tuesday March 13.

Newt Gingrich: End the war in Afghanistan

I have mixed views about the idea of pulling out of Afghanistan’ but I believe that the facts are in Newt’s favor. I do not like the idea of leaving the Afghans, especially the women, to the hands of a never ending stream of Taliban coming from Pakistan. I like the idea that many tens of thousands of jihadists go to Afghanistan to get themselves killed fighting our military. However there is almost no chance that the larger strategic goals in the area will ever be achieved. The culture is too backwards and tribal.

I think that our best bet is to evacuate all of the women and children who want out as well as those who threw their hat in the ring with us and leave. We should leave with a firm warning that if Afghans ever attack us again we will respond with Bremen like force.

Dan de Gracia at the Washington Times:

March 11, 2012—Republican presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told Face The Nation this morning it was time for the U.S. to leave Afghanistan. “I think that we have to reassess the entire region,” Gingrich said, adding further, “I don’t think that we have the willpower or capacity to fundamentally change the region.”

Gingrich’s recommendation is perhaps the best thing I’ve ever heard him say throughout his entire campaign. The financial cost of the war in Afghanistan is an immense burden to the American taxpayer – estimated to be $113 billion this year alone – even as the debt continues to skyrocket and our military sees deeper and more dangerous cuts to cover the costs of the ongoing Global War On Terrorism.
