Americans largely despise national political media and today’s headlines give an idea why. Above the cyber-fold at establishment brands are stories about a top GOP contender’s four traffic citations and the presumed Democrat nominee’s latest propaganda effort.
Hillary Clinton has injected a timeworn motif into her 2016 campaign, a motif so old for Democrats it’s practically fossilized. Now Mrs. Clinton is pushing for what left of center Washington Post called a “sweeping expansion of voter access.”
The New York Times obliged the eternally ambitious Mrs. Clinton by picking up her voter suppression meme and by explaining that mystery man George Soros is the “bankroller” for Democrats’ “voting rights cases.”
Meanwhile legacy media like left of center NYT lusting for a Clinton nomination blared a ridiculous headline about Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and his wife’s traffic tickets. Rubio received four citations in 18 years. His wife drew more, but for the header, NYT lumped them together. Nice little ‘psych-ops’ the paper pulled with that touch.
Such foolishness indicates the NYT and certain other legacy outlets believe Rubio is the one Dems must beat, probably in addition to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker whose state is getting sued right now courtesy of millions Soros anted up. Obviously a Dem in the Oval Office is a benefit to Soros and his fellow billionaires.
Dem loyalists claim there is no such thing as voter fraud, one reason they get highly agitated at the “burden” of having to present a photo ID to vote but rarely say a word when photo ID is demanded for attendees at the leftist party’s conventions.
There is potential for voter fraud and no small amount has been found within certain prog quarters. Democrats claim there is no voter fraud, but they are addressing fraud at the federal level. There’s plenty of it at the local and state levels.
You know it’s bad when a viable Democrat candidate, Wendy Rosen, for US Congress gets booted from the race by her own progs for vote fraud:
“In a letter to Maryland’s attorney general and the state prosecutor, the chair of the Maryland Democratic Party wrote that Rosen has been registered to vote in both Florida and Maryland since at least 2006. Party chairwoman also said in the letter that Rosen voted in the 2006 general election and the 2008 presidential primaries in both Florida and Maryland.”
In 2011 I documented cases of vote fraud in an article for Examiner.
In 2011 as the NAACP railed about vote suppression, the organization wasn’t too keen to talk about vote fraud committed within its own organization by one of its officials. If you never heard of it, chalk up one more reason to despise a politicized media who aren’t honest with you about their content providers’ biases.
In 2012 James O’Keefe, one of the only real investigative journalists alive today, showed exactly how easy it is to register to vote. O’Keefe pulled a sting for his endeavor Project Veritas, showing how easy it was for a total stranger to get a voter ballot with the same name as former scandal-plagued attorney general Eric Holder.
In 2010 Houston experienced a scandal that, had Republicans been at the center of it, would have rocked the nation’s newspapers for weeks. The Harris County Election Technology Center experienced a massive fire that destroyed just about every voting machine. How many records were destroyed? This happened weeks before the 2010 elections that would return the US House to Republicans. A government watchdog group had raised questions about a big voter drive organized by a former union member:
“Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Sean Caddle, who also worked for the Service Employees International Union before coming to Houston. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.”
By 2014 after repeated warnings from the FBI about identity fraud, the agency uncovered a driver’s license scam in California. There had already been one in Virginia. Foreign nationals in the country illegally were assisted in getting illegal driver’s licenses. A license is a valid ID for those who come to vote.
Is Hillary Clinton’s latest motif a top concern for the welfare of our republic? Of course not. Hillary is attempting to fill the shoes of a charismatic biracial president whose speechmaking abilities should rank him top of the heap in both theater and rhetoric. Hillary is white, so there will not be a racial draw atop the ticket. It is likely her campaign has already done a lot of minority shopping to get just the right candidate to rile up the uninformed masses.
Hillary can’t draw those masses by herself. Should former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush be the Republican nominee, that would help spur some Dems to vote. Media know that too.
However, considering Democrats’ uber-failures in governance, the party is obligated to do whatever it can to bring warm bodies to the precincts.
There is no voter suppression, at least from Republicans. If someone procrastinates through two weeks of early voting opportunities and the opp to mail in a ballot, he or she is responsible. Any Democrat, even those as filthy rich as Soros, knows that.
The biggest culprit when it comes to voter suppression is the Democrat-controlled Internal Revenue Service. How many voters were disenfranchised when IRS targeted opposition political groups ahead of 2012? One thing is for sure. That agency shredded the First Amendment and no one was fired.
Thing is when that Maryland candidate voted twice, she canceled votes in some states. Was it your vote the Democrat nixed? Maybe Mrs. Clinton could weigh in on that if she decides to actually take questions from her adoring media.
Thomas Sowell put propaganda in perspective with a column he wrote:
“Perhaps the biggest voter fraud of all is the fraud against black voters, by telling them bogey man stories, in order to try to get them to come out on election day to vote for Democrats.”
