The Guerilla Filmmaker Has Exposed How Voter Fraud Is Both Easy And Condoned In Colorado

 

 

 

 

” Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”

  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. “

” Shots rang through the air Wednesday morning in Ottawa as multiple gunmen opened fire on Parliament Hill.

  At least two people were shot, including a solider who was standing guard at the cenotaph at the War Memorial in the city’s downtown.

  Incidents spread across three locations: the War Memorial, Centre Block and the Rideau Centre mall, located kitty corner from the Chateau Laurier. Buildings in downtown Ottawa were locked down.

Video: Shootout At Canadian Parliament

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A Canadian soldier was shot at a war memorial in Ottawa this morning. Parliament Hill then went into lockdown, two other shootings in the area have been reported, one alleged shooter has been killed, and there are reports of other gunmen at large. Beyond that, the facts are pretty cloudy. For a sense of the chaos, here’s some footage of police firing their weapons during a sweep of a Parliament building. The video was shot by The Globe and Mail‘s Josh Wingrove. “

Aimpoint Launches Affordable New ‘Carbine Optic’ Red Dot

 

 

 

” Aimpoint is getting into the entry-level market — entry level for Aimpoint, anyway — with its new ACO red dot sight. The ACO, or Aimpoint Carbine Optic, is tailored for the “black rifle” crowd, AR-15s in particular.

  The design draws on some of Aimpoints existing products, chiefly the Aimpoint PRO, the company’s previous entry-level optic, and delivers on the ruggedness and reliability the market has come to respect from Aimpoint, just at a more approachable price.

  With an MSRP of $393, the ACO is sure to be a hit with rifle owners of all stripes looking for a non-magnified optic. Realistically the sight will have a significantly lower retail price when it hits shelves later this October.

“ By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package,” Brian Lisankie, Aimpoint’s president, said in a press release. “

Trial Lawyer Industry Tries To Buy A Democratic Majority

 

 

Lawyers Political Contributions

 

 

 

” If you follow the money in the 2014 election — if you look past the audacious nine figures of liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, and past the well-heeled tentacles of the Kochtopus, and past Karl Rove and Harry Reid — you will find a little-noted major player in the battle to control the U.S. Senate: trial lawyers.

  Lawyers and law firms have given more money to House and Senate candidates and party committees than any other industry, with an overwhelming majority going to Democrats.

  Lawyers are top donors in all of the most competitive Senate races. The top lawyer lobby in Washington is a leading bundler and PAC donor for the Democrats’ official and unofficial campaign committees.

  Ironically, despite all these tens of millions in lawyer dollars trying to keep the Senate in friendly hands, it could be the industry’s unpopularity that hands the U.S. Senate to Republicans.

  Trial lawyers love Democrats because Democrats advance policies that help trial lawyers make money. More regulation and more legislation often means more litigation. Democrats oppose tort reform, while Republicans — encouraged by the business lobby — support tort reform. Democrats push laws such as the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act that create all sorts of legal ambiguities and liabilities, which yields profits for lawyers. “

Shots Fired Inside Canada Parliament

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Several shots have been fired outside and inside the nation’s parliament in Ottawa.

  Witnesses reported seeing a gunman firing at the Ottawa War Memorial and then running toward the government buildings, where more shots were heard.

  A soldier has been wounded in the attack, Canadian media report.

  The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level from low to medium. A soldier was killed in a hit-and-run earlier in the week.

” Shots fired at War Memorial at 9:52am today; one person injured,” Ottawa Police tweeted on Wednesday as a witness reported seeing authorities search from room to room for the suspect.

  The gunman fired on soldiers guarding Canada’s main war memorial and then ran into the parliament.”

 

BBC News

 

Here is a more detailed accounting of the attack from the Ottawa Citizen

 

 

” John McKay, another Liberal MP, says a librarian in Parliament told him she saw shooter walking through halls with rifle

  Witnesses to the War Memorial shooting described a man pull up in a car in front monument just before 10 a.m., get out with a rifle and started firing shots at the soldiers standing guard.  About five or six shots were fired.

  The soldier fell on the steps at the foot of the Cenotaph, where bystanders and paramedics provided emergency medical care. The soldier, believed to be a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from gunshots to his abdomen. His condition is unknown.

  Witnesses said the man got back into the car, raced up Elgin Street and parked on Wellington Street in front of a gateway to the Hill.  The man wore what one witness described as an “Arabic scarf”  and was carrying what was described as a long rifle.

  Police warned bystanders downtown that the shooter was still on the loose. The suspect is described as 5-9 to 5-10, overweight and wearing a dark jacket. “

82-Yr Old Grandmother Tired Of Democrat Games; Voting Republican

 

 

 

” This 82-year old grandmother called into C-Span Washington Journal and let the Democratic Party have it with frustrations and haymakers.

  I have noticed in years what the Democratic party has done to my people. Unemployment is higher in the black community….than anywhere else.

  I cannot say, there’s no way I can continue to say that I was a Christian and stay in the democrat party. They advocates the killing of babies, they advocate taking from the doers and giving to the ones sitting doing nothing……. “

Government Waste Includes Swedish Massages For Rabbits, Monkey Gambling Lessons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” More than a dozen lucky rabbits were given Swedish massages four times a day, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers, as part of a study to figure out whether massage can help recovery times after strenuous exercise — a practice Sen. Tom Coburn says makes a mockery of federal spending.

  The rabbit massages are one of the hundred wasteful products Mr. Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, identified in his latest edition of the Wastebook, an annual compendium of the ridiculous and outrageous items in government spending, which he is releasing on Wednesday.”

 

 

If you think Swedish massage for rabbits is absurd get a load of these expenditures …

 

 

” Other highlights included the National Science Foundation paying academics to teach monkeys to gamble, government sponsorship of a children’s play about brain-eating zombies and a first-person combat shooting video game the Army developed — but which intelligence officials fear terrorists could use to train their own recruits. Indeed, Hezbollah has adapted the game’s design to train suicide martyrs.

  Mr. Coburn’s investigators also found scientists putting mountain lions, monkeys, rats and cows on treadmills. That’s reminiscent of a previous famous item Mr. Coburn spotted that involved sticking shrimp on a treadmill to try to see if tired shrimp were less healthy. “

Second Immigration Wave Lifts Diversity To Record High

” From a distance, the small group of Haitian immigrants at the public library looks like a prayer meeting or political gathering. Dressed colorfully but comfortably, the women speak in heavily accented English and sit every day for hours around a small wooden table studying to be nurses.

  The library sits at the heart of one of the most diverse counties in the USA. More than 50 languages are spoken in the public schools, and this is what more and more communities across America will look like soon — very soon.

  Racial and ethnic diversity is spreading far beyond the coasts and into surprising places across the USA, rapidly changing how Americans live, learn, work and worship together — and even who our neighbors are.

  Cities and towns far removed from traditional urban gateways such as New York, Miami, Chicago and San Francisco are rapidly becoming some of the most diverse places in America, an analysis of demographic data by USA TODAY shows.

  Small metro areas such as Lumberton, N.C., and Yakima, Wash., and even remote towns and counties — such as Finney County, Kan., or Buena Vista County, Iowa — have seen a stunning surge in immigrants, making those places far more diverse. 

The result: For the first time, the next person you meet in this country — at work, in the library, at a coffee shop or a movie ticket line — will probably be of a different race or ethnic group than you.”

” Although the Obama administration has yet to release the federal healthcare premiums for 2015, some private insurers have.

  One of them in Minnesota has indicated that they will be showing increases of up to 60% for their ACA-compliant policies. Preferred One, the largest and lowest-cost provider of health insurance in the state, pulled out of the state’s MNsure exchange last month due to its being “unsustainable.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Furthermore, a study was also just released that surveyed 2,600 businesses around the state, finding that 74% said prices of healthcare insurance increased after the law went into effect and that most of these increases were over 10%.”

But the GOP holds a significant lead among those most likely to cast ballots: 47 percent of these voters favor a Republican controlled-Congress, 39 percent a Democratic one. That’s a shift in the GOP’s favor since an AP-GfK poll in late September, when the two parties ran about evenly among likely voters.

  Women have moved in the GOP’s direction since September. In last month’s AP-GfK poll, 47 percent of female likely voters said they favored a Democratic-controlled Congress while 40 percent wanted the Republicans to capture control. In the new poll, the two parties are about even among women, 44 percent prefer the Republicans, 42 percent the Democrats.”

  What appears to be a homicide on the streets of Philadelphia has innocent bystanders concerned. The victim lying on the ground quickly changes the emotions of these people by popping up viciously from the crime scene as a severely wounded Zombie. Much to their surprise, they are naturally horrified by the situation causing them to tremble, scream, and even flee the scene. At times, detectives lure in the passerby’s with questioning to make the situation more believable. An off duty security guard stood close by to ensure the safety of the public during the prank.

‘WRAP’ Torture Device Used On Incarcerated Arkansas Youth Ignites Outrage

 

 

” A bizarre was photo taken at the Yell County Juvenile Detention Center in Arkansas, and it has been obtained from a FOIA request and released on the internet, currently going viral.

  The picture displays a teen in a restraint system similar to a straightjacket, except it appears to cover a person’s face completely.  Perhaps the most bizarre aspect of this photographic evidence of torture, is the appearance of the thing covering the teen’s face.

  What is that thing covering the kid’s face? Why does it look like duct-tape with disturbing cross-eyed cartoon eyes drawn on it with sharpie? That might just be indicative of a whole process of humiliation that accompanies this abuse.”

” “The world hasn’t seen this kind of atrocity in generations,” he told CNN. He’s mostly correct. Although genocides have happened repeatedly throughout history, including famous genocides in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, as well as Cambodia, the genocide perpetrated against Christians and other minorities is extreme, partly because it is being gleefully publicized. “
