voteballotbox“While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan. “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.”
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. It is unknown if the machine in question (#008958) has been removed from service or is still in operation.

I like what Ohio's Governor Kasich had to say about Obamacare: "it's here to stay."
Yep, he expanded Medicaid, but he lost the base in doing so.
The Republican base consists of religious conservatives. I think it was a mistake for Reagan to begin the process of flooding the party with them. Good for elections. Bad for governing. They put religion before party, before country--before everything.
Huh? The Reagan base consists largely of Constitutionalists, who are interested in keeping government living within its means. That the country was founded by moral men of faith is tangential.
The secular Left ignores the Constitution and uses extra-legal mechanisms -- from vote fraud to court-stuffing -- to achieve that which they could never do so via popular vote or Amendment process.
The New Deal to Obamacare (and everything in between) being cases in point.
Jerry Falwell and Reagan worked together, I believe, to ensure greater participation of religious conservatives in the republican party. Maybe you're too young to remember that.
Of course I remember the Moral Majority. Reagan's governing principles were rooted in Constitutionalism and limited government ("Government is not the solution; government is the problem."). Maybe you're too young to remember that.
I agree that those were his "governing principles." His election strategy is what I'm talking about. Too many religious conservatives in the party. Mixing government and religion is dangerous. As a Constitutional conservative, I'm sure you're aware that the Founders were acutely aware of that. Doesn't mean they weren't deists. Doesn't mean they weren't moral men. Just means religion and government are a bad mix.
>>> Just means religion and government are a bad mix.
Which is why Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, right?

This is my October 2014 Time Warner "Triple Play" bill. When I signed up, less than two years ago, it was advertised at $89.99 and today, less than two years later, the actual price is 110% more -- now $190.77.
Fact is -- you can never, ever get the advertised price because it doesn't include many of the fixed costs, like the set top box, not to mention it is littered with pass-throughs of the company's taxes and fees, including the cable franchise fees. To add insult to injury, there are a bunch of garbage, made up charges, and let us not forget the increases on all services -- the 'Internet modem' fee went up 140 percent.
Not to mention I was overcharged as the Universal Service Fund calculation is wrong by $.07 -- not in my favor.
I know most of you reading this "feel my pain."
This bill is like going to a restaurant and ordering the $20.00 dinner 'special' only to get a bill of $38.68, not counting the allowable taxes. When you ask the wait-person about the extras, they respond -- Well, there is a "silverware rental" fee -- you could have brought your own utensils, right? A "garbage disposal fee"-- someone had to clean off your plates and take out the trash. And, of course, a "no smoking" fee, because if people could smoke in here, we'd make more money.

GREAT NEWS: Obama Quietly Prepares 34 Million Green Cards and Work Permits for His Illegal Alien "Amnesty"
Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”
Hey, don't the American people overwhelmingly favor importing tens of millions of largely illiterate refugees from Third World countries -- with unknown health conditions and criminal backgrounds -- who will be dependent on the imploding welfare state?
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services plans to seek a vendor to produce as many as 34 million blank work permits and 'green cards' – the paperwork that authorizes illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States – as the White House prepares to issue an executive order after the Nov. 4 midterm elections.
...Former State Department foreign service officer Jessica Vaughan, now an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart that the RFP 'seems to indicate that the president is contemplating an enormous executive action that is even more expansive than the plan that Congress rejected in the 'Gang of Eight' bill.'
These Ebola Democrats* have to be nuked from orbit in November. It's the only way to be sure.
* Which is the term they prefer, I hear.

How Ebola Democrats respond to reports that streams of people left a Maryland rally when Obama began to speak
Steady stream of people leaving Maryland rally continues as Obama speaks. It's noticeable and noisy. They would have waited hours to get in.— Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) October 19, 2014
Lots of people, at least up front near where journalists are sitting, appear to be leaving this rally now that Obama has started speaking.— Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) October 19, 2014
And how, pray tell, did the Ebola Democrats respond? They employed their two favorite tactics.
MY, THAT'S ORIGINAL: ‘Scott Walker is Hitler’ Messaging From the Ebola Democrats, Chapter XXIVIXMSCIL
MADISON, Wis. — Here we go again — another roadside sign comparing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to Adolf Hitler.
The sign is across the highway from Westbrook Church, an Evangelical Christian worship center at 1100 Wisconsin 83.
A church employee confirms seeing the sign posted at the residence. She said the property has long posted one derogatory sign or another about Walker in recent years.
Wisconsin’s campaign silly season has kicked into hyperdrive, although the Hitler rhetoric is nothing new from the left, which holds a searing hatred for Walker.
In 2011, the governor successfully led a public sector collective bargaining reform bill, known as Act 10, that, according to unions and other critics, deprived Wisconsin’s government employees of their rights. Supporters, however, see Act 10 as returning rights to taxpayers.
During debate over Act 10, tens of thousands of protesters – the brunt of them connected with big labor – demonstrated at the state Capitol, while Democrat senators fled the state to stall a vote on the bill.
Hyperbolic signs lined the Capitol Square during those tumultuous times, signs comparing Walker to every despot from Hitler to Osama bin Laden.
The latest sign’s “divide & conquer” reference is an old liberal political chestnut, drawn loosely from comments Walker made to a campaign donors during what was believed to be an off-camera conversation. To the left, the governor’s turn of phrase, “use divide and conquer,” signaled a concerted campaign to take out organization, not simply fix a $3.6 billion budget shortfall that Walker and Republican lawmakers inherited after sweeping into power in 2010.

QOTD: "... the casualties of Obama’s reign in Benghazi are dwarfed by the hundreds of thousands of deaths his policies have led to in Syria and Iraq, and the millions of Iraqis, Syrians and Lybians that those same policies have caused to flee their homes and become homeless in Turkey, Tunisia and other places of refuge. Obama’s legacy is defined by his ideological aversion to American power, his rule as the most anti-military president in our history, and his deeds as an “anti-war” activist, opposed to the “war on terror” because he believes that America’s (and Israel’s) policies are the cause of terrorism and the hatred that Islamic fanatics direct against our country.
Because of his ideological opposition to American power, Obama deliberately and openly surrendered America’s gains in Iraq, which had been won through the sacrifice of thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of American casualties. By deliberately handing over America’s massive military base in Iraq – a country that borders Syria, Afghanistan and Iran – Obama turned that country over to the terrorists and Iran, as his generals and intelligence chief and secretary of defense warned it would. Obama disregarded the warnings from his national security advisers – as no other American president would have – because he regarded America rather than the terrorists as the threat. In abandoning Iraq and deliberately losing the peace, he betrayed every American and every Iraqi who gave their lives to keep Iraq out of the hands of the terrorists and the Islamic Republic of Iran." --David Horowitz

NICOLE LURIE: Obama's First Ebola Czar Was Embroiled in a Massive Scandal in 2011 and Still Holds Her Job
Perhaps some of the geniuses in the GOP can dredge up this article when they're accused -- falsely -- of slashing someone's budget. First off, no one's budget's been slashed. Second, MRC has documented the copious, criminal waste of money by the National Institute of Health and the Center for Disease Control.
But back to the original Ebola Czar, Dr. Lurie. Let Willman tell the tale:
Cost, need questioned in $433-million smallpox drug deal
A company controlled by a longtime political donor gets a no-bid contract to supply an experimental remedy for a threat that may not exist.
November 13, 2011|By David Willman, Los Angeles Times
Reporting from Washington — Over the last year, the Obama administration has aggressively pushed a $433-million plan to buy an experimental smallpox drug, despite uncertainty over whether it is needed or will work.
Senior officials have taken unusual steps to secure the contract for New York-based Siga Technologies Inc., whose controlling shareholder is billionaire Ronald O. Perelman, one of the world's richest men and a longtime Democratic Party donor...
Costs "well above what" specialists said was reasonable
When Siga complained that contracting specialists at the Department of Health and Human Services were resisting the company's financial demands, senior officials replaced the government's lead negotiator for the deal, interviews and documents show.
When Siga was in danger of losing its grip on the contract a year ago, the officials blocked other firms from competing.
20. If fees consume more than 1% of your assets annually, you should probably shop for another adviser.
18. The distinction between investment and speculation in common stocks has always been a useful one and its disappearance is cause for concern.
17. Wall Street has a few prudent principles; the trouble is that they are always forgotten when they are most needed.
16. Never mingle your speculative and investment operations in the same account nor in any part of your thinking.
15. Thousands of people have tried, and the evidence is clear: The more you trade, the less you keep.
14. No matter how careful you are, the one risk no investor can ever eliminate is the risk of being wrong. Only by insisting on what Graham called the “margin of safety” – never overpaying, no matter how exciting an investment seems to be – can you minimize your odds of error.
ANALYSIS: Ebola Czar Ron Klain was Appointed to Cover Up New Cases of Deadly Virus, Not Protect Americans
Nicole Lurie, a Scandal-Plagued Bureaucrat
Lurie has been mysteriously absent from discussions of the Ebola outbreak. The media seems rather incurious about her even though she's served in her very high-ranking position for five years. She is one of only eight direct reports to the HHS Secretary.
was implicated in a major scandal three years ago, reportedly directing a $433 million grant to a major Obama donor "and away from a company that was developing a treatment now being used on Ebola patients."
So Lurie has been carefully written out of the media's stories on the government's response to Ebola. She's an embarrassment; one of thousands of incompetent, political hacks who have burrowed into the federal bureaucracy, seemingly more intent on thievery than on their actual jobs.
That explains why Lurie has been "unavailable for comment".
So who is the new "Ebola Czar", Ron Klain?
He's a far left Democrat political operative, who has served as a chief of staff for both the dumbest Vice President ever (Joe Biden, who previously served as the dumbest senator in American history) and the infamous global warming grifter and Al Jazeera supporter, Al Gore.
As Mark Levin pointed out on Friday, Klain has a "shady past" and was involved with Gore's lawless efforts to steal the 2000 presidential election.
And, like so many Clinton cronies, Klain is said to have profited from protecting Fannie Mae from proper oversight, one of the primary factors behind the 2008 housing meltdown.
What does Klain know about Ebola, or any infectious disease, for that matter?
What qualifies him to lead this critical effort?
It turns out: absolutely nothing.
My contention is that Klain is there to to cover up new cases of Ebola, to threaten hospitals and other medical facilities with financial retribution, and to otherwise attempt to salvage Democrats' midterm hopes by excising the word Ebola from the nation's headlines.
There is no other rational reason for Klain to serve in this capacity.
As Dan McLaughlin notes, putting Klain in charge of the government's Ebola response is somewhat akin to George W. Bush naming Karl Rove the head of Katrina recovery in 2006.
As with every decision this administration makes, politics trumps protecting the American people.

QOTD: "Any day, any minute, illegal immigrants sick with Ebola could be walking across our border.
Worse, how easy is it for our radical Muslim enemies to send Ebola-infected terrorists across the border? How simple is it to infect and send hundreds of Ebola suicide terrorists into our hospitals and children’s schools?
All our radical Jihadist enemies have to do is inject tainted Ebola blood into volunteer suicide bombers or, worse, innocent children and send them across the border. Undetectable, they walk across our southern border showing no symptoms and surrender to U.S. border agents. Obama disperses them across the country where they sneeze or cough on their lawyers, caretakers and classmates. It’s that easy; it’s that simple to start a deadly Ebola pandemic across America.
Equally disturbing, what if Ebola spreads to Mexico, Central or South America? Suddenly panic ensues and hundreds of thousands of their citizens (or even millions) run for the U.S. border looking for America’s medical system to save them, spreading Ebola like wildfire… into your home and mine.
Our border is wide open to bring death and disaster, ending America as we know it. Yet President Obama is unwilling to do a thing to secure it. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
The question is why?" --Wayne Allan Root
