AG Holder vows to protect voting rights

Dec 13, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Daily Record

Attorney General Eric Holder vowed Tuesday to fully enforce civil rights protections in next year's elections amid a flurry of activity by states to redraw political boundaries and impose requirements that could reduce voting by minorities who enthusiastically supported Barack Obama in the 2008 election.

Holder has finally decided to protect voter's rights? How convenient. I guess that means he will be throwing away his Black Panther T-Shirts.

In other words, he means to subvert the US Constitution in order to give minorities additional advantages we white folk don't get.

Good.

The Constitution of the United States makes NO demand for a "photo ID" or any other obstruction nonsense created by the right-wing.

As the "tea party" claims to be such strict Constitutionalists, I can assume their full support of the Attorney General?

'The BUSH Administration DOJ spent millions of dollars and 6 years investigating voter fraud in all 50 states from 2002-2007 and brought 83 indictments for voter fraud out of over 330 MILLION votes cast in that time frame---0.000003% of the vote. And these 14 states aren't only going down the path of requiring ID restrictions that are statistically proven to be more likely to exclude minorities,students and seniors--ALL groups that are statistically more likely to vote Democrat than Republican,they are also going after early voting measures that have led to higher voting participation.

The real truth of this matter is the GOP knows that the more people that vote the worse they do. That's because they more and more represent the interests of less of this nation's population. So they invent a problem in search of a solution.

Here in my state of Maryland we just had the top campaign official of former Governor Bob Ehrlich's (R) effort to re-capture the Governorship in 2010 convicted on 4 charges,including 1 of attempting to perpetrate a FRAUD on the voters of the state of Maryland, for his involvement in the planning and use of a robocall that went out to roughly 112,000 black voters in Prince Georges County and Baltimore City with the polls still several hours from closing. The call essentially told the voters to stay home,that there was no need to vote,that the Democratic candidate,Martin O'Malley,had it in the bag.

THAT is how the GOP rolls. Tries to bilk 112,00 voters into not voting and then bitches and moans about the need to impose new,tighter restrictions on perfectly honest,legitimate voters in order to head of an "epidemic" of rampant voter fraud that led to a whopping 83 indictments out of 330 million votes cast from 2002-2007. What a bunch of laughably transparent racists the lot of you are.

As a white man who fought in defense of this country in the first Gulf War all I can say is that you people sicken me to my very core.

It's YOU huntington that is living in a fantasy land existence. Now go back to some of your more purposeful pursuits,like slipping you Sarah Palin blow-up doll the high,(semi)hard one.'

Idiot.

How do you know who is voting if they don't have a photo ID? South Africa, India, and most European Nations demand to see a photo ID when citizens vote. I makes perfect legal sense. Not showing a photo ID is stupid. You're stupid. Stupid.

The voting dead .... Obama and Holder's real "corpsemen" ....

Lawlessness at the DOJ: Voting Section Told Not To Enforce Purging the Dead or Ineligible from Voting
http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/lawlessness-at-t...

In November 2009, the entire Voting Section was invited to a meeting with Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes, a political employee serving at the pleasure of the attorney general. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Motor Voter enforcement decisions.

The room was packed with dozens of Voting Section employees when she made her announcement regarding the provisions related to voter list integrity:

We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.

Jaws dropped around the room.
...
The blame-Bush instincts of this administration will no doubt lead to talk about all the cases the Bush DOJ didn’t bring to open up public welfare agencies to voter registration. Good luck. I’d suggest citizens go online and see the Section 7 NVRA, or “Motor Voter,” cases that were commenced under the Bush administration. Bush brought voter registration cases under Motor Voter against Arizona and Illinois.

This Justice Department, in contrast, has “cherry picked” which parts of Motor Voter law they will enforce. You wouldn’t think it has anything to do with politics or the upcoming elections, would you?

Democrats refuse to purge dead voters (they need all they can dig up)-- Washington Times Editorial:
http://prairiepundit.blogspot.com/2010/09/dem...

The dead voters may be forced back into their graves. The biggest scandal emerging from the infamous New Black Panther voter-intimidation case didn't even involve the Black Panthers.

Instead, it came when whistleblowing attorney J. Christian Adams told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that top Justice Department official Julie Fernandes had openly refused to enforce laws that require states to remove ineligible names - dead people, felons, people who have moved - from voter rolls.

"We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law," Ms. Fernandes reportedly told a roomful of employees of the department's Voting Section in November. "It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it."

Soros Plots Plunder of 2012 Election:
Obama’s boss has gotten too much of his agenda forced through to be willing to retire in 2012
http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/arti...

"The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do." -- Joseph Stalin

As the rest of us count the days until the November election, Obama’s boss, unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros, is brewing a scheme to pirate the 2012 presidential election. Still smarting from the trauma of losing to George W. Bush in 2004, Soros is concocting ever more perfidious schemes for ensuring the outcome of our next presidential election.

****** Secretary of State Project ******

The phony philanthropist who thinks he’s God is funding the SOS project, conniving to install regime-friendly operatives in Secretaries of State offices nationwide. Matthew Vadum unveils the plot:
.
.
The vehicle for this planned hijacking of democracy is a below-the-radar non-federal ‘527’[Thank you, John McCain] group called the Secretary of State Project. The entity can accept unlimited financial contributions and doesn’t have to disclose them publicly until well after the election.

The founders of the Secretary of State Project, which claims to advance ‘election protection’ but only backs Democrats, religiously believe that right-leaning secretaries of state helped the GOP steal the presidential elections in Florida in 2000 (Katherine Harris) and in Ohio in 2004 (Ken Blackwell).

SoS was co-founded by James Rucker, former director for Moveon.org Civic Action. Moveon.org is of course, funded by Soros. Soros is one of the more notable contributors to the SoS project .

SoS was instrumental in abetting freak show refugee, Al Franken’s senate seat depredation by way of Soros factotum, Minnesota Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie:
.
.
The SoS Web site lauds Ritchie as ‘arguably the most progressive secretary of state in America,’ and states:‘Thanks to SoS Project donors, Minnesota’s Mark Ritchie – a true champion for Democracy – was able to defeat a two-term incumbent Republican by less than 5 points. We helped close the gap and make the difference with cable television ads targeting women and seniors.’(Newsmax)

The fund raising section of the SoS web site features a photo of former Florida Secretary of State, Katherine Harris—these people can’t let anything go—and their mission statement:
.....
The right wing is always taking extreme measures to bring down President Obama’s agenda, even carrying guns to town hall meetings. It’s gone too far.

It’s like these people did summer internships at the Kremlin learning how to execute a disinformation campaign. The most formidable weapon in the Kremlin’s arsenal is charges of ‘extremism’(Edward Lucas, The New Cold War).

Ritchie was endorsed by ACORN, as was California’s Secretary of State, Debra Bowen who is also honored by SoS as “one of the most progressive Secretaries of State in the nation.” Translation: don’t let this woman near a ballot box.

Obama’s boss has gotten too much of his agenda forced through to be willing to retire in 2012.

Those who were committing voter "registration" fraud were prosecuted with the help of ACORN. It was actually ACORN they were attempting to defraud.(they were probably Republicans) None of those fraudulent registrations actually attempted to vote. Requiring people to purchase ID’s to vote is a defacto poll tax, which is illegal.

Now that ACORN has gone undercover, looks like Holder is taking up the slack. What a guy. I trust him like I trust Obama. If they really wanted to protect voters right, they would approve of voters producing ID before voting, and make approved IDs more available to those CITIZENS who can't afford them. But that's an argument they refuse to acknowledge.

An ID is required to drive, open a bank account, obtain Government services, buy a house, etc. etc. If your argument is merely the cost in obtaining a valid ID for a person who doesn't drive, has no bank account, is not on Government services and does not own a house, how about the Government setting up some sort of system to which THOSE individuals can ALSO obtain a valid ID for purposes of voting without charge, hence no "poll tax"?

Do you honestly believe that legal citizens, who able to get out to vote,(not to mention grocery shopping, banking, paying utility bills etc) do not have the ability to obtain a valid ID? Seriously? The only real argument here is the cost, to which the fee could be waived under certain circumstances so that a person who votes can identify themselves as the individual registered to vote.

The only fraud that is being attempted is the fraud the Republicans are perpetrating on the Country by disenfranchising voters. Voting should be mandatory for all citizens. But if that was the case the Republicans would become extinct after one election.

Which political party has been using their "vote early, vote often" slogan for decades?

That would be the Democrat party.

Which political party continues to fight against voter I.D. verification regulations?

That would be the Democrat party.

The fact is that criminals have always been against any and all forms of I.D. verification due to their propensity for living outside of the law. This is why the vast majority of criminals routinely engage in using invalid and/or stolen identities, military I.D.s, S.S. numbers, driver's licenses, and credit cards.

That being said, which political party would these criminals most likely vote for?

That would, of course, be the Democrat party.

The real question here is why should we take the "word" of these criminals when it comes to voting?

The answer is that we shouldn't.

This is why nearly every civilized country on the planet enforces voter I.D. verification.

No amount of liberal pro-criminal statements and/or propaganda from the likes of Holder can change these facts.

The same goes for those of you who attempt to defend your lawless political ideologies with invalid race cards.
