Voter ID: Apparently not allowing minorities to cheat is a form of racial oppression
We can thank Jill Stein and her hopeless recount effort for bringing about at least some positive change in our election system
writes Benny Huang
In the face of incontrovertible evidence of voter fraud in Michigan’s
most populous county, the Michigan House passed a much needed voter ID
bill. Unfortunately, the Michigan Senate will probably not vote on the bill this session. Pray that they get to it in the New Year.
The bill is long overdue though it won’t fix the particular problem
discovered during the Michigan recount. Here’s what happened: when state
officials reviewed the Michigan vote tally they began to notice an odd
trend at polling places found mostly in Wayne County, the heavily
Democratic area where Detroit is located. At some polling places more ballots were cast
than names checked off the voter rolls. The problem was particularly
pronounced in Detroit where 247 of the city’s 662 voting precincts
counted more ballots than voters. The city was rife with broken seals on
ballot boxes, a strong indicator that ballots were either added,
removed, or swapped out. According to a spokesman for Michigan’s
Secretary of State, election staff attributed irregularities at polling
places in Detroit to human error. Apparently there’s a lot more “human
error” in big corrupt cities than in other places.
“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we
didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t
normal,” said Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board
of Canvassers. I’d venture to say that she’s likely wrong on that point.
This degree of suspicious irregularity is probably very normal—for Detroit.
The excess ballots should be considered the absolute minimum level of
cheating. There may have been other forms of chicanery layered on top
of that—voter impersonation, for example, or non-citizens voting. Those
types of voter fraud are more difficult to detect especially when people
in power have a vested interest in turning a blind eye. Liberals will
deny that any such thing took place but of course they’re also denying
the blatant ballot-stuffing, sheepishly explaining it as “human error.”
The lesson to be learned here is that Democrats always deny and minimize
voter fraud when they’re the ones behind it—which happens to be most of
the time. Their denials are nothing but meaningless noise.
What then can voter ID law do to clean up this mess? Not much. Voter
ID is intended to stop voters from misrepresenting themselves not
crooked poll workers from fiddling with the ballots after they’ve been
cast. Voter ID is not enough. The real solution to the problem of voter
fraud is to break the backs of the corrupt urban Democratic machines
that run most of our big cities.
That won’t be easy of course, and it
will be downright impossible as long as Loretta Lynch and her Department
of “Just-Us” is around to protect them. The current administration
views any effort
to restore integrity to our chaotic elections as a furtive attempt at
disenfranchising minority voters. Apparently not allowing minorities to
cheat is a form of racial oppression.
… Just don’t expect the corrupt Democratic machines to go softly into
the night. They will sue, they will protest, and they will slander good
people with spurious accusations of racism. They will make those of us
who care about electoral integrity wonder if it’s really worth the
fight. I assure you, it is.
We don’t have much time. There are midterm elections in two years and
another presidential election two years after that. If the Democrats
learned anything from their 2016 debacle it’s that they didn’t cheat
nearly enough. Next time they’ll really cheat their asses off—worse than
Bill Belichick, I mean.
Cheating is a long-standing tradition within the Democratic Party dating
back to New York’s Tammany Hall. Some of their world-class cheaters
have included Lyndon Johnson in Texas, Richard Daley in Chicago, and
Honey Fitz in Boston. They’ve elevated cheating to an art form.
In 1965 we passed the Voting Rights Act which enabled federal officials
to crack down on corrupt Democrats in the rural South who engaged in
voter intimidation while conveniently doing nothing about corrupt
Democrats in the urban North who engaged in voter fraud—and sometimes
voter intimidation as well. Though the law wreaked of northern hegemony,
it was sold to the naïve public as a sincere effort to keep election
It was the age old story of our nation—we northerners
using the federal government as the means and racism as the pretext to
force our will upon southerners. Sure, there was a problem in the South;
but there was a similar problem in the North and the federal government
didn’t post outsiders at our polling places to babysit us.
We northerners were permitted to run our own elections which were then,
just as they are now, hopelessly tainted with corruption. Southerners,
on the other hand, were placed under some adult supervision—by which I
mean Yankee supervision.
Voter fraud is very real. Anyone who tells you otherwise either benefits from it or is simply foolish. I’ve noticed that a curious kind of circular logic surrounds the crime
of voter fraud that doesn’t apply to other kinds of crime. The fraud
deniers refuse to consider any incidents of voter fraud because no one
has proven to their satisfaction that it ever happens more than a few
times per election cycle in disparate locations. Mere “anecdotes,” they
say. They then cite a lack of convictions for voter fraud as proof that
it never happens. I wonder if it ever occurs to them that there aren’t
many convictions because no one is on the lookout for it and anyone who
tries to stop it is smeared as a racist?
… Examples of voter fraud abound. In Indiana,
the state police are investigating the Indiana Voter Registration
Project for running what appears to be a massive absentee ballot scam in
56 counties. Stay tuned for some final resolution on that one. A CBS
affiliate in Los Angeles found 265 deceased Californians who had apparently voted from beyond the grave. In Virginia,
the Public Interest Legal Foundation discovered 1,046 non-citizens on
the voter rolls in just the eight counties that responded to their
request. In Wisconsin, A Hillary Clinton surrogate bragged on camera about busing voters around to vote at multiple polling places.
