Are Elections Rigged In The Free World?

The Voting System IS Rigged
Liberal Judges Overturn Voter ID Laws, Electronic vote rigging

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”—Joseph Stalin
With all of the election fraud reported in California on Primary Election Day June 7th, it is particularly interesting that former President Bill Clinton met with California Governor Jerry Brown behind closed doors in California the week before the Primary. “They discussed foreign and domestic politics, and yes, the presidential campaign,” said Brown’s spokesman Evan Westrup, the Los Angeles Times reported.
I’ll just bet they discussed foreign and domestic politics… just the way Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she and Bill Clinton talked only of grandchildren, golf, and their respective travels, in a private jet on a tarmac in Arizona.
The electronic vote rigging in California appears to have been designed to keep Bernie supporters from electing him in the primary. And if they can steal an election in California, they can steal the Presidential Election.
Election fraud was widespread during the California Primary election June 7. Thousands upon thousands of California voters showed up at their designated polling stations only to discover that their party registration had been changed, or they were dropped entirely from the rolls. And it was evident this was done from within the state’s electronic voting system.
Many predict there will be massive election fraud during the general election, all to benefit Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. (This is my SHOCKED face)
Harken back to the 2012 Presidential election.  There were reports of voting machines automatically defaulting to a vote for Barack Obama… Reports of 120% voter turnout in far too many precincts…  Bus loads of strangers showing up at polling stations… And there were precincts showing 100 percent of the vote for one candidate - Obama.
“One group from Princeton needed only seven minutes and simple hacking tools to install a computer program on a voting machine that took votes for one candidate and gave them to another,” The Hill reported in November 2014. “More whimsically, two researchers showed they could install Pac-Man onto a touch-screen voting machine, leaving no detectable traces of their presence.”
Since then it’s only gotten worse. Throughout the country, tens of thousands of people appear on the voter rolls more than once, dead people are registered to vote, and even convicted felons are on voter rolls. And let’s not discount the recent DNC delegate shenanigans - nearly every primary and caucus magically favored Hillary Clinton, despite the millions of winning votes going to Sanders.
There was Hillary Clinton’s unexplainable good luck in the Iowa coin tosses. Then there was the sudden and inexplicable poll worker shortage crisis, right before the Primary with hoards of untrained elections volunteers. Some of the untrained elections volunteers allowed Clinton supporters to participate in caucuses without first being registered.
These stories are nowhere to be found in the mainstream media. But mainstream media pundits have no problem mocking our articles about election fraud. “Fraud of any kind is actually quite rare in elections, although you wouldn’t know it from reading the conspiracy-stoking fringe media,” wrote Robert Price, the Executive Editor for The Californian in Bakersfield, CA, after a reader wrote a letter quoting from our June 18 article, California Election Corruption Is Widespread.
Shout-Out to Gov. Moonbeam For His Help With Fraud
Federal law is unambiguous and says that only legal citizens may vote in an election for federal office. Immigrants, documented or not, do not have the right to vote in federal elections in the United states, until they obtain citizenship.
A YUGE thanks from the Clinton campaign goes to California Gov. Jerry Brown for his New Motor Voter law. At least that’s what they are likely saying behind closed doors. This is because The California New Motor Voter Program automatically registers all “eligible” California voters to vote when they first obtain or renew their driver’s licenses at the Department of Motor Vehicles.  “Eligible” no longer means having the right to do or obtain something; satisfying the appropriate conditions.
“The goal is to ease barriers to voting, but election-integrity advocates warn that the measure could inadvertently add millions of illegal voters to the rolls given that California allows undocumented aliens to obtain driver’s licenses,” The Washington Times reported in an article last year.
Is there any question how this was done?
First Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill into law allowing illegal aliens to obtain official California drivers licenses. He did this despite that the California DMV is unable to differentiate between U.S. citizen and non-citizens when automatically plugging them into voter rolls.
The real goal wasn’t to provide identification to those who are in California illegally; the goal was to automatically register them to vote.  Studies have shown that new immigrant voters start out liberal, largely because they are dependent on government. But over time as they integrate and prosper more, they or their next generation tend to be more conservative.
The California New Motor Voter Program even protects ineligible voters from criminal prosecution with this Get Out of Jail Free Card:  “if a person who is ineligible to vote becomes registered… (and) attempts to vote in an election… the person is presumed to have acted with official authorization and shall not be guilty of fraudulently voting… unless the person willfully votes or attempts to vote knowing that he or she is not entitled to vote.”
California was a crucial state for both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, but the election was called for Clinton minutes after the polls closed, before millions of provisional ballot votes were counted. One week later, more than 2.6 million votes were still uncounted in California.
Adding to the suspicious outcome, based on pre-primary election polling, the media didn’t do any exit polling because the results would have shown that Sanders likely won California. A civil rights attorney had even filed a lawsuit before the primary to force the media to publish their exit polls. But the media instead opted not to even do exit polls, in order to get around the order.
HAVA and California
California only recently implemented its electronic voting system, while many other states have abandoned electronic voting machines.
Following the hanging chads incident in Florida in the 2000 presidential election, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act in 2002, which mandated sweeping reforms, including a statewide voter registration system that would eliminate ineligible voters.
But California failed to comply, and for 12 years was the only state that was still not compliant with the act. In 2014, newly elected Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Democrat, announced upon being elected that he planned to have California compliant within the year.
A 2014 report by the Election Integrity Project titled, The Doors Are Wide Open For California Election Corruption, found California’s election system had serious vulnerabilities, no centralized computerized, no statewide voter registration list, poor National Voter Registration Act list maintenance, non-compliance with statutes protecting lawful voters, and suspected voting fraud.
The report also found key election officials were roadblocks to election integrity. “Whether this stems from negligence or design, or a misguided central focus on ‘voter experience’, the result is the same: Corruption. The injury to lawful voters is patent,” the report said. We believe the problem is with Vote Cal,” Election Integrity Project co-founder Linda Paine said in a June interview.  “It’s the same problems all over the state.
Liberal Judges Overturn Voter ID Laws
Very recently, three federal courts have overturned voter-ID laws, claiming the laws were racially discriminatory. They also claimed there is very little voter fraud.
U.S. District Judge James Peterson said the requirements that Wisconsin voters show either a photo identification or go through a special petition process had unfairly burdened minorities and needed to be reformed or replaced before the November presidential election. Peterson is an Obama appointee.
North Carolina’s voter ID requirements were eliminated by the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. The ruling also erases provisions that prohibited same-day registration and out-of-precinct provisional voting, as well as those that restricted early voting. “The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision” and “impose cures for problems that did not exist,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the panel. “Thus the asserted justifications cannot and do not conceal the State’s true motivation.” Motz is a Clinton appointee.
Texas Voter ID law was struck down by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzalez Ramos. She struck down the entire law, finding that its purpose was “explicitly discriminatory.” Ramos was appointed by President Barack Obama.
On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed previous rulings that the 2011 voter ID law—which stipulates the types of photo identification election officials can and cannot accept at the polls—does not comply with the Voting Rights Act.
Their ruling however, left a good deal of doubt about how much of the Texas law will actually be nullified after a new round of analysis that it ordered a federal trial judge to do, the SCOTUS blog reported. “The ruling by the Fifth Circuit left open the possibility that Ramos could again rule that the law was intended to discriminate, but that part of its ruling made quite clear that that would be a further reach for the judge.  For example, the Fifth Circuit essentially barred her from basing a new discriminatory intent on discrimination that occurred in Texas years ago against racial minorities, in voting and otherwise.  Any such evidence, to be considered, must be more recent, it suggested.”
Some of the dissenting Fifth Circuit judges wrote that “requiring a voter to verify her identity with a photo ID at the polling place is a reasonable requirement widely supported by Texans of all races and members of the public belonging to both political parties,“the Texas Tribune reported. “Seven of the court’s 15 judges backed the decision in full. Two other judges backed most of the decision. Dissenting judges wrote that the ‘en banc court is gravely fractured and without a consensus. There is no majority opinion, but only a plurality opinion that draws six separate dissenting opinions and a special concurrence.’”
It’s not over, but the Hillary campaign and the Democratic National Committee are playing politics in the courts, by using their own appointees to strike down reasonable voter ID laws.

It’s not just the election but the whole system that is RIGGED
It’s not that a rigged election is the main problem, Mr. Trump, it’s that’ NO ONE’S doing diddly squat to find the way to de-rig it and the horrific lifestyle greedy government leaders have planned for us

Is the election, as Donald J. Trump contends, rigged?
You can bet the farm that it is.
Rigged is precisely what the candidate the Democratic National Committee nominated at last week’s circus called a convention is, a many times proven congenital liar who enriched herself through the Clinton Foundation as she prepared herself for the 2016 presidential election after her stint as the worst Secretary of State ever appointed.
Rigged is what the office of the president has become ever since a man who changed his name from Barry Soetoro to Barack Obama arrived to squat on the iconic White House.
Rigged is a president who works from the White House to impose his will on the outcome of the November 8 election.
“Can you recall an incumbent outgoing president being this involved in an election?” Radio talk show giant Rush Limbaugh asked today.
“This is unprecedented.  This is exactly what he is going to do after election.”
“Obama is worried about his agenda and legacy being unraveled if Trump wins.”
Limbaugh lamented: “I’ve never seen anything like this in my lifetime.  He’s completely undermining our system of government.”
Obama’s been undermining our system of government for, lo these past almost eight years, Rush.  All he’s doing now is doing it flagrantly and openly, and getting away with it.
Rigged is where we are right now.
We’re rigged everyday by not only a mainstream media who show no shame for being the running dogs with the progressives called Democrats, but rigged by sanctimonious politically correct social media, one of which even runs Hillary Clinton’s deceitful election campaign.
We’re rigged by sanctimonious mothers like Jeb Bush advisor Sally Bradshaw who step up and say:  “As much as I don’t want another four years of (President Barack) Obama’s policies, I can’t look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump. I can’t tell them to love their neighbor and treat others the way they wanted to be treated, and then vote for Donald Trump. I won’t do it.” …
No one in the mainstream media, the alternate media, or the social media, no one with their own daily radio show with the small exception of Tom Bauerle at WBEN is telling listeners the truth. ((Listen Here)
No one is telling people where the rigging of the American presidential election is taking America and the Free West which depends on it.
To a one world government that allows all leaders to easy and convenient control of the masses; where the only protests are ones like Black Lives Matter and other activist malcontents approved by Big Government; to a society which kills off life in the womb, denies medical care for veterans, the aged and the infirm, and is now well on its way to convincing people self-defense against the tyranny of Islamic terrorism is not acceptable.
It’s not that a rigged election is the main problem, Mr. Trump, it’s that’ NO ONE’S doing diddly squat to find the way to de-rig it and the horrific lifestyle greedy government leaders have planned for us.

Donald Trump claims the U.S. election 'is going to be rigged'
Republican candidate offers no evidence to back up claims about his country's democratic process
The Associated Press 
Last Updated: Aug 02, 2016

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested Monday that he fears the general election "is going to be rigged" — an unprecedented assertion by a modern presidential candidate.
Trump's extraordinary claim — one he did not back up with any immediate evidence — would, if it became more than just an offhand comment, seem to challenge the very essence of a fair democratic process.
"I'm afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest," the Republican nominee told a town hall crowd in Columbus, Ohio. He added that he has been hearing "more and more" that the election may not be contested fairly, though he did not elaborate further.

Trump made the claim after first suggesting that the Democrats had fixed their primary system so Hillary Clinton could defeat Bernie Sanders.

Trump has previously backed up that thought by pointing to hacked emails from the national party that appeared to indicate a preference for Clinton. Still, the former secretary of state received 3.7 million more votes than Sanders nationwide and had established a clear lead in delegates by March 1.
The celebrity businessman — who has been known to dabble in conspiracy theories, including claims that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and, more recently, that Senator Ted Cruz's father was an associate of former president John F. Kennedy's assassin — also claimed that the Republican nomination would have been stolen from him had he not won by significant margins.
He then asserted that November's general election may not be on the up-and-up.
'It's going to be taken away from us'
He repeated the charge Monday night on Fox News Channel's Hannity, saying: "November 8th, we'd better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged. And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it's going to be taken away from us."
Requests to Trump's campaign for additional explanation were not returned.
Trump has not been shy about asserting that the electoral process has been "rigged."
It became a frequent catchphrase of his during a low-water mark of his primary campaign this spring, when forces allied with Republican rival Cruz managed to pack state delegations with supporters of the Texas senator.
Trump also asserted that the Republican Party had changed the delegate allocation in the Florida primary to favour a native candidate, like Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio, at Trump's expense.
In recent weeks, in an effort to woo angry Sanders supporters to his campaign, Trump has made the claim that the Democrats' process was also rigged.
Monday night, Trump said Sanders "made a deal with the devil," and said of Clinton, "She's the devil."
