Vote Fraud? Video Shows Man Stuffing Hundreds of Ballots Into Ballot Box

Defenders of lax election laws say it rarely happens — but apparently it’s happening again. In what critics describe as a shocking example of likely vote fraud, a surveillance video (see below) from a Maricopa County, Arizona, polling place shows a man stuffing hundreds of ballots into a ballot box.

The act was observed by A.J. LaFaro, chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, on August 25 while he was stationed at the MCTEC facility at 510 S. Third Avenue in Phoenix during the primary election cycle. Writes the Arizona Daily Independent:

LaFaro recounts that between 12:54 p.m. and 1:04 p.m., he heard a loud thud and turned to see what was going on. “A person wearing a Citizens for a Better Arizona (CBA) t-shirt dropped a large box of hundreds of early ballots on the table and started stuffing the ballot box as I watched in amazement.”

Vote Fraud? Video Shows Man Stuffing Hundreds of Ballots Into Ballot Box

 

While sound is not available on the recording

LaFaro provides the following account:

Person from CBA: “What’s your problem?”

LaFaro: “I don’t have a problem.”

Person from CBA: “Stop watching me. You’re annoying me.”

… LaFaro: “One of your ballots isn’t sealed.”

Person from CBA: “It’s none of your business. What’s your name?”

LaFaro: “I’m the chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Party. What’s yours?”

Person from CBA: “Go [f***] yourself. I don’t have to tell you who I am.”

After the man was mostly done with his ballot stuffing, he began taking pictures, which were images of ballots “that he staged in the slot of the ballot box. He then hid behind the ballot box and table as he slipped the unsealed ballot [mentioned earlier] into his brief and left,” the paper reports LaFaro as saying. The man is then seen on the video leaving the building and subsequently returning to drop the ballot into the box. As he left for good he said to LaFaro, “Go f*** yourself, gringo.”

Not surprisingly, LaFaro describes the CBA operative as “a vulgar, disrespectful, violent thug that has no respect for our laws.” “I would have followed him to the parking lot to take down his tag number, but I feared for my life,” said LaFaro.

The next day he visited four other polling locations, where he observed poll workers doing nothing and heard about “ballot parties,” events at which activists collect large numbers of ballots from people so they can “vote them illegally,” as LaFaro put it.

And what’s the nature of CBA? American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson weighs in, writing, “Citizens for a Better Arizona appears to be a left wing organization, hiding behind the usual bland rhetoric.” Its website tells us that it is “a predominantly volunteer driven organization of Republicans, Democrats and Independents committed to improving the quality of life of all Arizonans — better schools, better health care, better jobs, better government and a better, more civil tone of respect and decency when it comes to solving Arizona’s problems.” But, reports Lifson, “[H]ere are some of the stories highlighted on its [CBA’s] “news” page”:

The Islamic Madness Persists

by on October 23rd, 2014

 

By Alan Caruba
The lull in the coverage of all things Islamic was broken by two terrorist attacks in Canada, a reminder that so long as the world does not unite to destroy the Islamic State, we shall all remain vulnerable. A “lone wolf” terrorist can kill you just as dead as one in a terrorist organization, particularly one encouraging these attacks.
While the media’s herd mentality continues to report about Ebola in West Africa and gears up for massive coverage of the forthcoming November 4 midterm elections, the Middle East remains in a low state of boil, never failing to produce bombings, skirmishes, and the usual inhumanities we associate with Islam.
Americans pay attention to the Middle East only when blood is flowing and at the present time the only element generating that is the Islamic State (ISIS) which continues to attack Kobani in northern Syria and assault the Yazidis and other targets in Iraq. The U.S., Britain and France are bombing ISIS forces, largely to protect and assist the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, the only fighting force of any consequence.
Virtually unreported are the 18 million Muslim refugees throughout out the Middle East. The U.N. reports that these and internally displaced persons reflect the turmoil in Afghanistan, Iraq. Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. To grasp this, think about what either the U.S. or Europe would be like with a comparable number of refugees.
As David P. Goldman, a Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research and Wax Family Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum, noted October 20 on the Forum website, “That is cause for desperation: unprecedented numbers of people have been torn from traditional society and driven from their homes, many with little but the clothes on their backs.”
“There are millions of young men in the Muslim world sitting in refugee camps with nothing to do, nowhere to go back to, and nothing to look forward to…never has an extremist movement had so many frustrated and footloose young men in its prospective recruitment pool.”
So what does John Kerry, our Secretary of State, think is the greatest problem in the Middle East? While discussing the ISIS coalition with Middle East leaders, Kerry expressed the opinion a week ago that the Israeli-Palestine situation was the real problem. Apparently he is unaware that there is no Palestinian state and never has been. The one on the West Bank exists thanks to Israeli support and the one in Gaza, controlled by Hamas, provoked Israeli defense measures by rocketing it for months.
Prof. Efraim Inbar, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and a Shillman/Ginsberg fellow at the Middle East Forum, has a quite different point of view. “In reality, however, the novelty of the Islamic State, as well as the magnitude of the threat it poses, are greatly exaggerated.”
Noting that many of the Arab states have “failed to modernize and deliver basic services” Prof. Inbar has little anticipation that ISIS could do that either.

Watch White House make an embarrassing attempt to explain away why them ordering paper for 9 million green cards tell us nothing about Obama’s forthcoming executive action on immigration

A couple of days ago, news reports came out saying that the Obama administration is buying enough special paper to make 34 million green cards.  Here is an amazing video of Ed Henry and Major Garrett nailing WH Press Secretary Earnest on his unwillingness to answer a simple question.  This should be on every evening news broadcast.

Feds Scramble for Risky Vaccine

by on October 22nd, 2014

By failing to impose a travel ban, the Obama administration allowed a carrier of Ebola from Liberia into the United States, where he infected two nurses, one of whom was allowed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to travel on a plane. But don’t worry. The publication Politico says the system “is working.”

The “experts” say they still don’t know how or why two nurses treating the Ebola carrier contracted the disease. So-called “revised guidelines” for handling Ebola have now been issued by the CDC. The pressure is on for an Ebola vaccine.

This is an old story that deserves investigation and comment. Was the “system” working back in the 1970s when hundreds of people got neurological disorders and some died from a swine flu vaccine before it was withdrawn?

The Politico author, Harold Pollack, is a self-described “liberal health-policy wonk” who believes that Obamacare “will save many thousands of lives every year.” Perhaps that colors his thinking on how the Obama administration has put our lives at risk.

Mary Schiavo, a CNN aviation analyst and former inspector general for the Department of Transportation, is not a policy wonk, but she knows a lot about flying in and out of countries and the risks that go with air travel. She notes that just one Ebola case in the U.S. resulted in almost a thousand people being monitored for possible exposure to the virus.

Speaking common sense, she added, “If we leave our borders [open] and don’t have any restrictions on non-essential travel from Ebola countries to the United States, obviously, we will be a country of choice for that, and if one person causes us to hunt for a thousand, just think of those numbers, as they multiply.”

But Harold Pollack, writing in Politico, tells us that the system is working now and was even working during the swine flu scandal of the 1970s.

Here’s how he puts it: “Almost 40 years ago, the CDC suffered public humiliation when it was perceived as having bungled a massive vaccination campaign for a Swine Flu epidemic that didn’t materialize.”

So this was just a “perception,” not something having to do with reality. It was just bungling.

I decided to go back in time and investigate this “perception” about bungling.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the CDC’s swine flu vaccination campaign resulted in more than 500 people developing Guillain-Barre syndrome after receiving the vaccine, while 25 people died.

The CDC says Guillain-Barre syndrome is a rare disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages their nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.

The New York Times reported the number of dead at 30.

The Washington Post said the federal government ultimately paid more than $90 million to hundreds of victims.

But there is just a “perception” that the CDC blew it, according to Pollack.

Pollack, in the same piece, praises Fox News anchor Shepard Smith for using his show to denounce “irresponsible” coverage of Ebola.

Pollack’s piece is worse than irresponsible; he insists that the Ebola threat is overblown yet ignores the fact that in the swine flu controversy of 1976 the public health establishment manufactured an “epidemic” for the purpose of scaring people into getting vaccinated. Many people listened to their government and got sick or died.

The War on Police, Revisited

by on October 22nd, 2014

The justified police killing of black thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, was used by the media to accuse the police of being “militarized” when they brought out the heavy equipment to cope with rioters. At the same time, Brown was portrayed as an innocent black man shot with his hands up. All of this was false, and it has now been proven to be false.

Anti-police protesters, joined by outside agitators, some of them communists, were said by CNN and other media to be opposed to racist “police violence” against black people. That was the story we were told.

Now, The New York Times has disclosed the evidence presented to a grand jury in the case. Police Officer Darren Wilson was attacked by Brown—after Brown robbed a convenience store—and the officer fired in self-defense.

This conclusion, reported by the Times in an October 17 story, should not come as a surprise. We’ve known that the shooting followed Brown’s robbery of a local convenience store, where he pushed the store manager around. In addition, the police said from the beginning that Wilson fired at Brown inside the police car, showing the officer was attacked there.

The idea of Brown throwing up his hands in a surrender pose has been shown to be utterly false.

The Times reported, “The officials briefed on the case said the forensic evidence gathered in the car lent credence to Officer Wilson’s version of events. According to his account, he was trying to leave his vehicle when Mr. Brown pushed him back in. Once inside the S.U.V., the two began to fight, Officer Wilson told investigators, and he removed his gun from the holster on his right hip.”

In a follow-up, The Washington Post confirmed the account, saying, “Officials who spoke to The Washington Post on Saturday said the forensic evidence supports Wilson’s account that a scuffle occurred at the police vehicle, that Wilson feared for his life and that Brown went for, or lunged for, his gun.”

The Post added:

From the earliest days police have said that Brown scuffled with Wilson and that a shot was fired in the vehicle.

In those first police accounts, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said that Brown ‘allegedly pushed’ Wilson back into the car after Wilson tried to open the door. Brown, police said, then ‘physically assaulted’ Wilson and went for the gun. Wilson fired inside the vehicle, they said. Wilson then got out and killed Brown, Belmar said. Police said Wilson feared for his life because Brown charged him on the sidewalk.

In other words, the police have been telling the truth all along. And this is now admitted by officials familiar with Attorney General Eric Holder’s effort to bring trumped-up charges against Wilson for murder. The forensic evidence makes Holder’s efforts impossible.

The Post said that some “protest organizers” were “unmoved by the forensic details…”

These “protest organizers” are racial agitators and communists. Why doesn’t the Congress investigate them?

Instead, as we have reported, Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Rand Paul (R-KY) held a hearing to complain about the “militarization” of the police, with Paul received sympathetic media attention for his “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” display, one similar to the protesters egged on by the racial agitators.

The Hunter Biden Chronicles

by on October 22nd, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 11.38.47 PMThe Hunter Biden Chronicles
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

Everything you need to know about Beltway nepotism, corporate cronyism and corruption can be found in the biography of Robert Hunter Biden. Where are the Occupy Wall Street rabble-rousers and enemies of elitist privilege when you need them? Straining their neck muscles to look the other way.

The youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden made news last week after The Wall Street Journal revealed he had been booted from the Navy Reserve for cocaine use. His drug abuse was certainly no surprise to the Navy, which issued him a waiver for a previous drug offense before commissioning him as a public affairs officer at the age of 43. The Navy also bent over backward a second time with an age waiver so he could secure the cushy part-time job.

Papa Biden loves to tout his middle-class, “Average Joe” credentials. But rest assured, if his son had been “Hunter Smith” or “Hunter Jones” or “Hunter Brown,” the Navy’s extraordinary dispensations would be all but unattainable. Oh, and if he had been “Hunter Palin,” The New York Times would be on its 50th front-page investigative report by now.

Despite the disgraceful ejection from our military, Hunter’s Connecticut law license won’t be subject to automatic review. Because, well, Biden.

Biden’s bennies are not just one-offs. Skating by, flouting rules and extracting favors are the story of Hunter’s life.

Hunter’s first job, acquired after Joe Biden won his 1996 Senate re-election bid in Delaware, was with MBNA. That’s the credit card conglomerate and top campaign finance donor that forked over nearly $63,000 in bundled primary and general contributions from its employees to then Sen. Biden. As I’ve reported previously, Daddy Biden secured his custom-built, multimillion-dollar house in Delaware’s ritziest Chateau Country neighborhood with the help of a leading MBNA corporate executive. Average Joe went on to carry legislative water for MBNA in the Senate for years.

Hunter zoomed up to senior vice president by early 1998 and then scored a plum position in the Clinton administration’s Commerce Department, specializing in “electronic commerce” before returning to MBNA three years later as a high-priced “consultant.” While he collected those “consulting” (translation: nepotistic access-trading) fees, Hunter became a “founding partner” in the lobbying firm of Oldaker, Biden and Belair in 2002.

William Oldaker was Papa Biden’s former fundraiser, campaign treasurer and general counsel — a Beltway barnacle whose Democratic machine days dated back to Teddy Kennedy’s 1980 presidential bid. Under Oldaker’s tutelage, Hunter lobbied for drug companies, universities and other deep-pocketed clients to the tune of nearly $4 million billed to the company by 2007.

Coincidentally, then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama personally requested and secured cozy taxpayer-subsidized earmarks for several of Hunter’s clients.

Hunter got himself appointed to multiple corporate board positions, including a directorship with Eudora Global. It’s an investment firm founded by one Jeffrey Cooper, head of one of the biggest asbestos-litigation firms in the country. SimmonsCooper, based in Madison County, Ill., donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden the Elder’s various political campaigns over the past decade — all while the firm poured $6.5 million into lobbying against a key tort-reform bill, which former Sen. Biden worked hard to defeat.

My newest piece at Fox News: "The truth about young black men and police shootings"

by on October 22nd, 2014

My newest piece at Fox News starts this way:

Tensions are still high in Ferguson, Mo., after the Aug. 8 police shooting of Michael Brown. On Friday, it was reported forensics showed Brown’s blood was on both the inside of police officer Darren Wilson’s car as well as Wilson’s gun. The gun had also been fired twice within the car. This evidence hardly squares with early witness accounts that Brown was shot with his hands in the air while he was surrendering.

With forensic evidence finally coming in, Officer Wilson’s shooting Brown is looking as if it were justifiable self-defense.  But that hasn’t stopped people from making it a racial issue.

Over the weekend, the New York Times noted some black leaders, such as Congressman Elijah E. Cummings, D-Maryland, “often invoke voting rights and the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black man shot by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., as a way to mobilize black voters.”

About a week ago journalists at ProPublica and Slate further fueled the anger many blacks felt about the shooting. Slate’s headline read: “Black Teens Vastly More Likely to Be Killed by Police Than Whites Even After Adjusting for Crime Rates.”

The incendiary finding got massive uncritical news coverage . . . .

Dad shoots, kills armed intruder who broke into Sarasota home at 5:40 AM

by on October 22nd, 2014

From My Fox Tampa Bay:

. . . Deputies said the homeowner, Chris Bane, heard glass breaking at about 5:40 a.m. He grabbed his gun and went into the hallway, where he came face to face with Calvin Yoder.

“The burglar fired a shot and the homeowner returned fire, striking and killing the intruder,” said Wendy Rose, a spokesperson for the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. “Apparently the homeowner has been the victim of burglary recently so he was on alert, he was on edge, and as soon as he heard glass breaking he armed himself to protect himself and his 11-year-old child who was in the home.”

Rose said Bane’s home had been broken into as recently as Sunday, but deputies aren’t sure if Yoder was involved.

Yoder, 22, has had several run-ins with the law; he’d been arrested at least five times and spent several months in prison. . . .

“[Bane and his son] were both uninjured,” Rose said. “Clearly they’re shaken up and speaking to investigators.” . . .

Serious voting problems in this election, fraud, illegal aliens registered, and errors favoring Democrats

by on October 22nd, 2014

Regarding Colorado:

James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group. . . .

From Illinois:

Early voting in Illinois got off to a rocky start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.
Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.
“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan 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.”
The conservative website Illinois Review reported that “While using a touch screen voting machine in Schaumburg, Moynihan voted for several races on the ballot, only to find that whenever he voted for a Republican candidate, the machine registered the vote for a Democrat in the same race. He notified the election judge at his polling place and demonstrated that it continued to cast a vote for the opposing candidate’s party. Moynihan was eventually allowed to vote for Republican candidates, including his own race . . . . .

Illegals registered to vote in North Carolina:

The voter rolls kept by the State Board of Elections contain 145 names that belong to a certain category of ineligible voter – immigrants in the U.S. under a federal program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, according to elections officials.
Josh Lawson, an SBOE spokesman, said that election officials found out about the number Tuesday night, after the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a specific search for drivers with DACA licenses.
Letters from the SBOE will be sent to the 145 people asking for documentation that they are U.S. citizens, Lawson said.
More people who are ineligible because they are not U.S. citizens may be on the voter rolls.  Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as “legally present,” according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. . . .

One of the Canadian shooters, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, recent convert to Islam, long criminal record

by on October 22nd, 2014

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s name was apparently previously known as Michael Joseph Hall prior to converting to Islam.  He had been designated a high-risk traveler and that his passport had recently been confiscated.  Zehaf-Bibeau had a long criminal history with arrests for robbery, making threats, and various drug offenses.  He served time in prison on at least a couple of occasions, but he was still able to obtain a gun.

This attack comes on the heels of another recent muslim convert who used his car to run over two soldiers in Canada, killing one of them.

Terrorist ideology inspired a recent convert to Islam to drive his car into two Canadian soldiers, killing one, before he was shot dead by police, authorities said on Tuesday.
Quebec police spokesman Guy Lapointe said the act was deliberate and that one of the two soldiers was in uniform. There were no other suspects.

Public safety minister Steven Blaney called it a “terrible act of violence against our country, against our military and against our values” that was “clearly linked to terrorist ideology”.

Police identified the dead military member as Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, 53.
The suspect, Martin Couture Rouleau, 25, was known to authorities and recently had his passport seized, police commissioner Bob Paulson said. . . .

Sadly, but not surprisingly given these two attacks on soldiers, the Canadian government is urging members of the military not to wear their uniforms when they are off duty.  In the attack today, the ceremonial guard who was in uniform was definitely targeted.

In Jerusalem, an Arab terrorist rammed his car into a crowd, killing an infant and wounded several others.

A three-month-old girl, identified by her grandfather as Chaya Zissel, was killed and several US citizens and Israelis were wounded Wednesday evening when a convicted Palestinian terrorist from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people in the capital. . . .
