More "Calibration" Errors--What A Surprise!

by Al Benson Jr.

The most recent article I did for this blog spot dealt with a man in Illinois who voted early and wanted to vote Republican but his voting machine would only let him vote Democrat. Although he eventually got his individual problem taken care of, he (and I) wondered if this was going to be a problem with other voting machines.

Of course it's going to be a problem--nationwide. This may well be the way the Democrats regain control of the House and keep the Senate.

An article on www.newsmax.com for October 28, 2014 has stated: "A number of voting machines in Maryland and Illinois  are electronically switching Republican votes to the Democrats, raising suspicions that fraud could be at the root of the alleged malfunction...According to Watchdog.org election officials in both states have characterized the problem as a'calibration issue,' but a software developer and expert on touch screens used by U.S. intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the explanation was bogus. 'It's a software issue, and its incredibly suspicious that a bug like that could slip through accidentally. It defies belief' said Tony Heller. He said that any expert trained in the technology could figure out within minutes whether the problem with the software was accidental and deliberate...It's completely unacceptable that an official waved it off as a calibration error. It's something that can be easily verified and should be."

Multiple early voters in Maryland experienced this problem (first Illinois, then Texas, now Maryland) when they tried to vote for Republican candidates only to have their votes registered for Democrats. Does anyone detect a trend here? A Maryland election official characterized it as, guess what, a "calibration error" involving one voting machine. Yet people in four different locations in Maryland had the same problem. What did they do--move this one faulty voting machine around to four different locations??? Equal opportunity election fraud here, folks, line up and get taken! How much does anyone want to bet that there will be lots of "calibration errors" on voting machines in key states that the Democrats need to hold onto?

After all, if you can't trust your government then who can you trust--right? Right? How come I don't hear any answers from anyone?

I'd advise anyone who has to vote using these infernal machines to make sure your vote result tallies with how you voted before you leave the voting booth and if it doesn't then squawk to high heaven about it--loud enough so anyone in line waiting to vote hears your complaint.

It's Who Counts the Votes Stupid!

by Al Benson Jr.

There is an old saying attributed to Joseph Stalin that goes like this: "It's not those that vote that count. It's the people that count the votes." It sounds just evil enough to have been something Stalin would have said, but, then, the same sentiment could be attributed to some in this country. I have always wondered how Obama managed to get 140% of the vote in some places in the Northeast and I have also wondered why no Republicans ever complained about that. I have my own theory about that and, needless to say, it ain't politically correct.

But, however it happened, through intentional vote fraud, unintentional vote fraud, too many deceased folks voting too many times or through some magical phase of the moon, it looks like we may be getting ready in the upcoming mid-term elections for a repeat performance. I can almost see the headlines the morning after the election: "Democrats pick up enough seats to keep Senate, even pick up several in the House." I hope I am in error, but if such happened it would not surprise me.

This morning (October 21) someone sent me an email about a situation in Schaumburg, Illinois, in Cook County, Illinois. I used to live in Cook County, often called "Crook County" by those who knew what really went on.

Seems a State Representative candidate, Jim Moynihan, who is running in the 56th district decided to take advantage of the early voting program at the Schaumburg Public Library. Mr. Moynihan is a Republican and when he went to vote for himself he found that his voting machine cast his ballot for his Democratic opponent. He said: "You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.." No matter who he tried to vote for, the vote always turned up for some Democrat. Knowing his way around a little bit, Moynihan got hold of the election judge and showed him what his voting machine was doing, and he "was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates." It wasn't reported whether this particular voting machine was removed or not, though I did read another report that said it had been. Supposedly there was a "calibration" error made when the machine was being set up for voting. You might be tempted to wonder, especially in Illinois, how many other voting machines have similar "calibration" errors that will probably not be detected.

I checked this story out on several websites to make sure it was not something that just turned up on one far out site somewhere. Two sites I checked were www.eagnews.com and www.americanthinker.com which is a site that has a pretty good reputation. There were a batch of others but I can't list them all.

Moynihan stated that: "I cannot say whether or not this was intentional, but Cook County voters deserve better and should not have their right to vote suppressed." Good sentiment, and I agree, but Cook County voters have been getting the shaft from the county political machine for so long about so many issues that this would hardly be a surprise. As one commentator reported "They don't call it Crook County for nothing." Sadly he's right.

For years political pundits have railed about crooked politics in Louisiana and Mississippi. I'm here to tell you, folks, these two states have nothing on Illinois when it comes to crooked politics. I recall reading an article awhile back that said: "Illinois, where your governors make your licence plates." That was because so many ex-governors were in prison--from both parties.

No matter where you live, if you have to use a machine to vote instead of a plain old paper ballot, which I think is still the best way, you better check your machine before you leave the voting booth to make sure it recorded who you voted for and not his opponent.

Just to add this on the day following the one I posted this article on, I heard from a friend in Texas who knew someone that voted early in his county and it seems he had the same problem the man in Illinois did--a voting machine that when he voted Republican all it would give him were Democratic results. There must have been lots of "calibration" errors on voting machines across the country this year. Interesting that most of those found thus far seem to favor Democratic candidates. Wonder how that happened? Anyone who still thinks we have honest elections in this country had better buy his tickets for the next Easter Bunny extravaganza from the Tooth Fairy!

A couple good sites

You all might enjoy checking out a couple good blog spots and a few other things.

jerryd14.wordpress.com  which has several thought provoking articles about Lincoln and Southern heritage.

http://troublesomecreekpublications.wordpress.com  which contains insightful commentary on some of what passes for politics in our day.

Also, do a Google search for Deovindice.org which is the website for the Confederate Society of America.

http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com  which contains many articles on Confederate and Southern heritage, public education and its background and several articles on Marxism and political correctness (which is another form of Marxism)

On this site check out the entry for June 3, 2013 which has information about the home school mini-history course for home school youngsters and others as well.

Check out the book Lincoln's Marxists on both Amazon;com and the Internet in general. It deals with much of the history of the War of Northern Aggression that the establishment historians would rather you didn't know too much about.

Obama and Ebola

by Al Benson Jr.

When I first read about the Ebola outbreak in West Africa my first thought was "How long will it be before they manage to bring it to the United States?" Turns out I didn't have too long to wait before I found out and, lo and behold, we had our first Ebola patient from Liberia in a hospital in Dallas, Texas.

At that point, my next thought was--well maybe better if I don't go into my next thought except to say that as this whole situation progressed I got the distinct feeling that Comrade Obama did not have the best interests of the American people at heart. But, then, did he ever?

Columnist Thomas Sowell probably said it much better, and with more gentility, that I ever could have. For those who may not know, Thomas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute and a well-known author who happens to be black. Several years ago he wrote an informative book, which I have read, called Inside American Education. In it he told people all that they should have known about the American education system but didn't really want to, lest they have to do something to remedy it.

Just today, 10/7/14, he had a column on townhall.com  which also appeared in the Washington Times and in several other outlets. In it he noted: "The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is both a danger in itself and a wake-up call for Americans--about President Obama, about the institutions of this country and, most important, about ourselves."

He continued: "There was a time when an outbreak of a deadly disease overseas would bring virtually unanimous agreement that our top priority should be to keep it overseas. Yet Barack Obama has refused to bar entry to the United States by people from countries where the Ebola epidemic rages, as Britain has done. The reason? Refusing to let people with Ebola enter the United States would conflict with the goal of fighting the disease. In other words, the safety of the American people takes second place to the goal of helping people overseas." Unfortunately, no truer words have been spoken in either this or the last century. The safety of Americans matters not at all to this man. As I've said before, he couldn't care less. And to prove that, he has American troops "fighting Ebola overseas" and downplaying the dangers not only to these soldiers but also to other Americans when those troops do finally come home.

Mr. Sowell then asks the question: "What does this say about Obama? At a minimum it suggests that he takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as President of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans' interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally." I wonder, also, if he considers Americans expendable--and if Ebola gets out here and kills a few thousand--so what?

Obama and his Regime look with absolute contempt on the average American. We exist only to pay his vacation and golfing expenses. He has the mindset of the typical Marxist elitist--the world lives to make me comfortable.

One place I do disagree somewhat with Mr. Sowell is his comments about those who spent considerable effort trying to either validate or invalidate Obama's "birth certificate." Although that effort has not produced everything the investigators hoped for, I believe it was a necessary effort and I cannot help but commend those that undertook it. Whether more turns up in that area or not we will just have to wait and see.

Sowell makes an insightful comment, one most folks have probably not thought much about, when he says: "Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama's foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America's interests as a nation." If anything that is a masterful understatement of the real situation. The priorities of Americans are last on Obama's list--the one thing he will never get to and he never intended to. He has had his own priorities as well as the agenda of the elite cabal that made sure he got into office and that's all he has an interest in fulfilling. Mr. Sowell seems to have grasped that fact. Too bad more Americans haven't. You would think after him being in office for six years it would have become rather apparent.

Mr. Sowell concluded his article with: "No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless. The erosion of Constitutional government over the years has become, under the Obama administration, a deluge of arbitrary edicts and defiant lawlessness protected by a grossly politicized Department of Justice."

No sane person, unless he be prone to delusion, can come up with any other conclusion. Those that helped Obama get into office, either by votes or other methods, have enabled him to preside over the destruction of the country--and he couldn't be happier!

Does Anybody Really Think He Cares???

by Al Benson Jr.

Just read a post from a Tea Party group which noted that Comrade Obama feels that our dying economy has recovered, but us stupid clods just don't realize yet all he has done for us and so we are not able to feel the great economic recovery he has provided for us. That probably sums up this Regime's attitude toward ordinary Americans--stupid clods. Anyone with eyes to see has to realize that this is exactly what he and this Regime think of us.

As for what we think of him and this current Marxist/Fascist Regime, does anyone honestly think he really cares? I read all manner of articles about polls--what the public thinks of Obama's domestic policy, or his foreign policy or about the performance (or lack thereof) of Congress.

It almost seems like those who publish these various polls think our negative opinions of this Regime will really make a difference. They won't.  The person that wrote this brief Tea Party article seems almost like they are about to get. Let's hope they follow through and go all the way.

The writer stated in part: "You can't help but wonder what planet Obama is from."Hint--it's a planet where the Red flag is raised above their capitol and their "leader" is "dictator for life."

But the writer continued: "A recent 60 Minutes interview showed just how far out of touch and disconnected the commander in chief is. It's as if all the numbers, every poll, all the outrage, doesn't even phase him." The writer is just beginning to get it. None of the polls, the numbers, any of it, makes a bit of difference to Obama. What the public has got to begin to realize is that no matter how bad the polls are, the President couldn't care less. He's not disconnected from what we think, he just doesn't give a Tinker's Damn what we think. He's not where he is to listen to or help the American people or to protect their interests. He's there to follow the orders given to him by the CFR/Trilateral/Bilderbeger Cabal and that's the only reason he is there. What the public wants or needs DOES NOT EVEN BEGIN TO ENTER INTO IT! If 99% of the public totally disapproved of what he did and he had orders from his puppet masters to do it, he'd do it anyways.

We've got to learn to disabuse ourselves of the illusion that he cares about the American people. He despises the average American. Oh, he loves the dedicated socialists and Communists, the illegal immigrants, the gay, lesbian and transgender crowd and the Muslim militants. To him these are the citizens worth placating. The rest of us who pay the bills can go to the Hot Place as far as he is concerned. And if he can find a way to use Obamacare to help us on our way he'll be more than ecstatic to do it.

This is where it's at, folks, we need to wake up and smell the coffee. He and his handlers have an agenda--to reduce this country to the status of a third world banana republic and this is what they will do no matter what we want. Nothing will get in the way of that except Divine Intervention, and I can picture Obama and his handlers arguing with God because they think they can do a better job than He can.

We need to repent of our sins and pray that the Lord will restrain the efforts of the One World crowd, not because we deserve it, but because of His grace in Christ. And that's not just a cliche, I'm serious about people praying that way. We need to start doing that. More of us need to start doing it than have been doing it. The power of prayer is something that this Marxist/Fascist Regime will not be able to overcome, though they may try.
