Have We Waited Too Long?

Did Barack Hussein Obama win the 2012 election fairly, or was there fraud involved?

(Nov. 8, 2012) — Needless to say, this is not the column that I planned to publish this week.  The events of last Tuesday have caused me to change course a bit.  The column I had prepared for this date was titled, Mitt Romney – 43rd President of the United States.

In that column, I attempted to show that, although Ronald Reagan is generally thought to have been our 40th president, technically speaking he was actually our 39th President.  George H.W. Bush was our 40th, Bill Clinton was our 41st, and George W. Bush was our 42nd.

The reason for the discrepancy is that, in all of American history, we have had two individuals… Republican Chester A. Arthur, in 1880, and Democrat Barack Obama, in 2008… who were elected without meeting the “natural born Citizen” standard required by Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.  Therefore, inasmuch as they were (are) usurpers, their terms in office cannot be counted as legitimate presidencies.  And since the American people appear to have repeated the great mistake of 2008, that column had to be relegated to the “round file.”

Over the past six months I have published several columns in which I have predicted that Mitt Romney would win the 2012 presidential election with somewhere between 295 and 325 electoral votes and that he would win the national popular vote by 69.40 million to Obama’s 59.98 million votes.  And when the nation’s two most astute observers of the political scene, Dick Morris and Michael Barone, agreed, I felt quite comfortable with my prediction.

In arriving at my estimated Obama vote, I assumed that 90% of the 2.4 million veterans who switched from the Bush column in 2004 to the Obama column in 2008 would, because of Obama’s anti-military stances, return to vote for Mitt Romney in 2012.  That reduced Obama’s total popular vote estimate, using his 2008 vote total as a base, to 63.98 million votes.

Then, looking at the independent vote, with the CNN/Opinion Research poll showing a 15 point swing away from Obama in 2008 to Romney, Obama’s popular vote total would be reduced by another 2.71 million votes, bringing his 2012 total to 61.26 million.

Finally, with the black pastors across the country urging their congregations not to vote for Obama because of his embrace of partial birth abortion and same-sex marriage, I assumed that he would lose, conservatively, approximately 5% of the black vote, or 1.28 million votes.  That would bring his popular vote total to 59.98 million votes.  Reports from across the country tell us that he received 59.90 million votes on Tuesday.  So my estimate of the Obama popular vote was off by 0.13%, or just over one-tenth of one percent.

However, on the Republican side of the ledger, I estimated that Mitt Romney would pick up 90% of the 3.7 million Republicans who voted for Obama in 2008, plus 90% of the 2.4 million veterans who had finally concluded that Obama was anti-military.  Using John McCain’s 2008 total as a baseline, that would bring Romney’s popular vote total to 65.42 million votes.  Add to that the 4.22 million independent votes that were expected to move from Obama to Romney, and assuming that the 1.28 million black voters who would abandon Obama would just stay home and not vote for Romney, that brought Romney’s estimated total to 69.64 million votes.

All of these estimates and assumptions are, I think, quite reasonable and conservative.  However, when we look at the total popular vote for last Tuesday, we are told that Romney achieved a popular vote of only 57.20 million votes… 12.44 million votes less than my estimate and 2.73 million votes less than John McCain received in 2008.

The Romney figures fly in the face of reason, to put it mildly.  How could any astute observer of the political scene underestimate the Republican turnout by nearly 18% unless someone has seriously “cooked the books?”  How could the most lackluster candidate the party could possibly have chosen in 2008, running against a self-proclaimed messianic rock-star, outpoll a man in 2012 who came very close to being the ideal candidate.  Where are the 3.33 million Republicans who voted for Obama in 2008?  Where are the 2.4 million veterans?  Where are the 4.22 million independents?  And where are all the millions of Roman Catholics who have been told by their bishops that they would be endangering their immortal souls by voting for Obama?

Was it evangelicals… the numbskulls who support Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s concept of “legitimate rape,” who agree with Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s view that a pregnancy resulting from a forcible rape is “God’s will,” and who consider Mormonism to be a cult religion… who stayed home rather than vote for Romney?  Given the long lines at polling places across the country, and given that conservatives and Republicans were far more energized in this election year than they have been in any presidential election in the past century, that is highly unlikely.  The numbers just don’t add up and I do not believe them.

What is so sad about all this is that this election was without doubt the most important election in American history because the country had arrived at a tipping point from which it had only a very slim chance of recovery.  Now we are “in the soup” and the Republican leaders of the House and Senate are going to have to develop spines of steel because the very future of the republic rests on their shoulders.

What we must try to make some sense of is how the people could reelect a man who had zero qualifications for the presidency when he arrived on the scene, who had less knowledge of economic principles than any 12-year-old running a sidewalk lemonade stand, and who had proven himself to be far more incompetent than even Jimmy Carter.

Obama has shown that he does have certain abilities.  He has a talent for stirring class envy among those who see themselves as have-nots.  He has a talent for tapping into racial sensitivities, making blacks and Hispanics feel as though they are put-upon or oppressed by white males.  And he has a talent for making the blue collar worker feel as though he’s not getting his fair share of the national economic pie.  In other words, the “millionaires and the billionaires,” the lobbyists and the “special interests,” and those who “fly around in corporate jets,” are enjoying their extravagant lifestyles because of the sacrifices of the working class.

It all points to one major weakness that has been growing in our country for generations.  What the Obama political success tells us is that there is not a single problem we have that cannot be traced back to the poor quality of public education.  The American people are just too ignorant of basic economics to understand how our free market economy works.  Yet now we are being told that, if Republicans are to recover from this debacle, they must learn how to “reach out” to blacks, women, the young, and Hispanics.  What they are saying is that Republicans must learn how to buy the allegiance of those groups by offering them more “goodies” than the Democrats offer.  That is simply not going to happen.

What is far more likely to happen is that Obama and congressional Democrats will drive our economy so far over the cliff that most Americans, of all social and economic classes, begin to feel some real pain.  If congressional Republicans can finally learn to play the PR game, and if they can get smart enough and tough enough to play their cards well while Obama occupies the Oval Office, they can literally destroy the Democratic Party.  All of the elements are there.

But it’s not just congressional Republicans who will have to show some steel.  The business community, big and small, must do their part to tame the mainstream media.  Is it possible to have a free country without a free press?  No.  Do we have a free press?  No.  The media rely on advertising dollars for their very existence.  It’s time that business advertisers let the major media outlets… TV, radio, and print media… know which side their bread is buttered on.  It’s time that the business community tied advertising dollars to media fairness.

For example, Barack Obama showed up in New Jersey for a few hours to look at storm damage, for which great praise was heaped upon him by mainstream media reporters.  But what if the reporters had asked, “Mr. President, you have said that the minute you learned that our people in Benghazi were under attack, you gave the order to ‘secure our people.’  If you gave that order, Mr. President, why did Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey disobey that order?  And if they did disobey a direct order from you, why are they still in their jobs?”

It is clear that someone… either Barack Obama or Leon Panetta… is not telling the truth.  Had that question been asked four or five days before the election there is a very good chance that Mitt Romney would be getting fitted for a new swallowtail coat and a top hat today.

Yes, it is the economic ignorance of our people that has destroyed us… the feeling among nearly half the U.S. population that there is such a thing as a “free lunch” that no one has to pay for because it comes from the federal or state government.  If we were to start today to teach our children basic free market economic theory; if we started today to teach our children the basics of American history and government; and if we started today to require that the black history courses in our schools actually teach black history, instead of politically correct black fables, it would take at least three generations to correct the damage that has already been done.

My fear is that we have waited too long.  We have run past the tipping point.

    Yes, yes, and another “Yes” for good measure, a VERY good measure.
    Suffice to say, I agree.
    And then I agree again, just in case I left anyone in doubt.

    As a result of the “Debacle Election” I am trying to refrain from further comments, but I cannot sit here and allow this opportunity to VENT pass unchallenged, please bear with me as I repeat myself, again!
    “Have we waited too long??”~
    Flash-back to the year 2007AD, “WE have but five more days before WE Fundamentally Transform America!!”, my first comment was: “This Dude is Dangerous!!” FF to Jan.20, 2008AD and the administration of “The Constitutional Oath” by Justice Roberts, my second comment was: This Dude is NOT the legal holder of “The Office of the President of the United States of America!”
    FF, again to the SECOND Issuance of “The Congressional Oath”, again by Roberts, in a CLOSED-ROOM Ceremony~WITHOUT the Citizens ability to “HEAR” the dialog!!~Question: “Was it the Holy Bible OR the Koran??
    Then, just for fun and the sake of argument-(which there is certainly plenty of)-consider the “Petition of Presentation to become the “Presidential Candidate”, issued by Nancy PIGlosi and the DNC~ONE for the state of HI., containing the “Qualified under the “Constitution of the United States of America” AND the 49 other documents that did NOT BEAR the “Qualification Statement” as REQUIRED under our Constitution!!
    VEERRY Interesting! Question: Why are these people NOT serving time for FRAUD??
    In addition, consider Atty. Orly Taitz and many other Attorney’s attempts in 400 Lawsuits to bring before the Corrupt, Useless, Bought ‘n Paid-For Judiciary proof of Forgery, Fraud, Identity Theft, Draft-Dogging, and, and, and, NONE of which ever went beyond the “NO STANDING” rulings of these Criminal Judges!!
    Then, add the GUTLESS, USELESS 535 TRAITOR “People’s Representatives??”, the Military “Chain “O” Command”, Law Enforcement community and our “Elected Officials” that have continue to have Acute DEMENTIA in regards to that which they Swore and Attested to in their Swearing to “The Constitutional Oath”-(there unfortunately is NO Constitution)-it has been Destroyed by the CZARDOMSHIPS, the circumventing of the “Legislative”, the Destruction of “The Balance of Power” edicts contained in the NOW Defunct Constitution with “O’s” ruling by “Executive Orders, Fiats, e.t.c. which have ALL been contrary to “The Rule of Law” as set forth in the Constitution and Founding Documents.
    I could continue, but my fingers are bleeding on my keyboard, again~let it suffice to say that “The Horse has left the barn, and is now in the next county!!
    The Question therefore, is REDUNDANT!!
    VELCOMEN, Comrade to “‘DA United SOCIALIST STATES ov OBAMA!”
    ‘YE had but to ask, NOW ‘YE HAVE Received!!

    One should not forget the criminal UNIONS.

    What we need is a “War on Unions”. Forget about “Buy American”. I say buy from Japan and put the unions in Detroit out of business. Do not purchase products from any company that is unionized. Yes it will hurt the company, but we need to starve the unions out of business.

    There was a time when unions were needed, but that is long gone. They are a major socialistic force that has helped destroy our country.

    Dear Thomas,

    My favorite saying is:

    “Everything done within the de facto is still de facto.” Steven Pattison

    This will only change if the People learn how to act as the collective sovereigns that they are by declaring that they are ‘One of the People’ inhabiting within one of the lawful Union States. If we just had ten in each Union State we could restore each of those State back to being a Lawful Union State.

    They are now controlled by a government de facto acting under an ‘Act of Sedition’.

    There is more than enough evidence that the 14th amendment was never constitutional passed. Knowing this fact then it would be reasonable to believe every amendment passed in the de facto is null and void as well!

    The evidence leads me to believe that the de facto took over one state at a time by creating Corporate Cities using ‘Roman Civil Law’.

    Do you agree?

    Dear Mr. Hollrah,

    I guess you did not figure in the fraud of the de facto counting votes. Haven’t you watched HBO video titled ‘Hacking the Democracy’ video?

    Their Official Website is http://www.hackingdemocracy.com/

    The People will never win if they believe their votes are being counted!

    Actually, your numbers seem entirely reasonable, even now, after the “election”, I believe your numbers are on target, spot on, and reflect more Truth than the reported numbers from each and every precinct throughout our nation.
    If each and every military vote were counted, every absentee vote, and all votes counted honestly, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised that the end result would be different.
    Let’s see, ACORN, amongst other so called Community Service Organizations, which are really Communist Front organizations, such as NOW, was, once again, a major controlling factor in (yes, I know they were “disbanded“, but only to form yet again under different names), not only who voted, but how the votes were counted, were found guilty of vote rigging, who’s to say they didn’t do the same thing all over again? Meaning, of course, that, not only was Osama’s (oops! I mean “Obama’s) “election” a fraud in 2008, it is also a fraud in 2012.
    As my Vice President always says “Velcome Komrade”, and now, I too, echo his “Velcome”.
