There’s more than one way to rig an election. This here is a BIG one.
Stuffing ballot boxes is not the only game in town for election rigging. Even though at least one Elections officer in New York knows it’s going on.
It even goes beyond rigging the voting machines.
All you need to do is dump in a large pool of voters who are friendly to your cause.
Which is exactly what will happen with 60,000 people being pardoned ‘JUST’ in time for the election. They have ALL been ‘carefully vetted’ you can be sure.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them, even as his office was saying the total was 13,000.
Now, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned that McAuliffe — who managed Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign — churned out five times as many letters before the registration deadline than publicly claimed. — Daily Caller
State courts say that each felon’s circumstances must be weighed. And somehow, he has had time to ‘weigh’ 60,000 felons circumstances? JUST in time for the election?
Not that this should surprise us… it’s exactly the sort of stunt that Obama’s own administration does. Dump felons into general circulation.
So, maybe the felons have a high recidivism rate. That’s ok. Their crimes aren’t happening near Martha’s Vineyard, or any of the Golf courses Obama spends his time at. So who cares? Sixty Thousand votes? There’s a swing state on the line! Obama’s ‘legacy’ to preserve.
You gotta ‘break a few eggs’ right? Who cares about the safety of private citizens in flyover country, anyway. The bigger our peek behind the political curtain becomes, the more urgent this ‘drain the swamp’ idea.
They are SO committed to white-knuckling their grip on the reigns of power they are willing to ignore their obligation to care for the common American, for his safety, for the rule of law.
Without equality under the law, we do not have a Republic. We have something else. Something lawless.
And we forfeit the ‘pressure release valve’ that free and fair elections GIVES a nation. Other nations with no such ‘valve’ tend to lay their hands on torches and pitchforks.
McAuliffe is a close friend of Hillary and former President Bill Clinton, even personally guaranteeing a loan for the purchase of their Chappaqua, New York, mansion in 1999. He also served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee where he was a prodigious fund raiser.
The Virginia chief executive claimed to have “no idea” how felons would vote and said he had never thought about it, even though their Democratic leanings are well-known. Clinton’s staff emailed him after the 200,000-voters move to call it a “great announcement” and set up a call about it.
It is foolish, dangerous, and shortsighted to put such a BLATANT political power-grab in play JUST so you can flood the election with newly-minted voters who … not surprisingly … aren’t much bothered by the fact that Hillary is being investigated by the FBI.
The crimes of which these felons were lawfully convicted demonstrate that they (not unlike McAuliffe, Obama, and Hillary) have no respect for the rule of law, and the Constitution.
As such, felons in that State have forfeited the right to have any say in shaping it.
If it becomes clear that any laws have been violated in offering this mass-pardoning, we would expect Governor Terry McAulliffe to be prosecuted. If, that is, some in the system have not been corrupted.
