Squaring the Culture




"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

They're Stealing the Election

I read two articles on Wednesday and was rendered listless and depressed for two days. I’m still recovering.

The first was this account from Nashville of vanloads of Spanish-speaking individuals brought to an early voting station by an activist. There were sound reasons to assess that these individuals were not qualified to vote, and that to permit them to vote would violate the law. The County Election Board, Democrats included, decided that they would not be permitted to vote. The state election coordinator — a Democrat — intervened and permitted them to vote anyway, making excuses for ignoring the law. The mechanism for objecting at this point only works after the fact, and cannot back out their votes even if it’s decided that the state erred.

This is one of many such incidents about which we’re hearing these days. Progressives have developed a strategy for manufacturing votes illegally, and they appear to have found the weaknesses in the system that allow them to get away with it, even though they know perfectly well that it’s illegal.

By the way, this is why the ACORN strategy is so devastating, and why the counter-claim “It’s just registration fraud, not voter fraud” is so lame (as though any sort of fraud were acceptable.) The ACORN strategy is clearly to overwhelm the ability of the system to filter out illegal votes. They’re doing it systematically. There would be no motive to do this unless they were working in conjunction with others who are systematically attempting to insert illegal votes into the system.

The second was Quin Hillyer’s column in the DC Examiner describing the situation in Ohio, where because of a legal technicality the Ohio Secretary of State, a Progressive Democrat, is getting away with clearly illegal manipulation of the system to disable the ability to filter out illegal votes. This part of the same, widespread effort by Progressives. They’re demolishing democracy before our eyes, and we’re helpless.

Hillyer’s article provided an interesting counterpoint to this deliberate take-down of the American republic. Remember a few weeks ago, when I reported on a conference run by the US Attorneys of the Justice Department in which they gave instructions for prosecuting anybody who attempted to “suppress votes?” Hillyer reports that they’re actually carrying this out.

Consider the California case in which the division’s lawyers have actually indicted former Republican congressional candidate Tan Nguyen for making “misleading statements to investigators.”

About what? Nguyen was tangentially involved with sending a letter that urged Latino citizens to vote but warned that illegal immigrants could be prosecuted if they tried to vote.

Every word in the letter was true. But DOJ investigators were more interested in cracking down on the people who wrote the letter – a legitimate expression of free-speech rights – than on the illegal immigrants who may be voting.

The kicker: The DOJ attorney on the case, former Ted Kennedy-affiliated lawyer James Walsh, is as contributor to the Obama campaign, as is his boss, former ACLU attorney Mark Kappelhoff.

So here’s the situation:

A large, organized group of partisans have decided to win the election by fraud. They believe they’re justified because of the imaginary fraud in the 2000 and 2004 elections (exhibiting infantile dementia by asserting that the wrongs of others justify wrongs of their own). They’re operating in a nationwide conspiracy to dismantle the ability of the nation’s voting system to identify and exclude illegal voters, then flooding the polls with illegal voters. Law enforcement officials tasked with enforcing the law and preventing such actions have made it clear that they will not enforce the law. The national agency responsible for prosecuting such actions is part of the conspiracy. And the press, which would ordinarily act as a foil against such widespread conspiracies, has decided that they approve, and refuses to blow the whistle.

Honest people are powerless. The election is being stolen, and we can do nothing.

When the government refuses to enforce the laws that protect us, it becomes the task of honest citizens to protect ourselves. Even if McCain wins this election — and that’s still very possible, given the apparent cooking of poll results by an obviously biased press — private citizens must begin to take measures to provide new guards for our future security. “An unjust law is no law at all,” said St. Augustine, and widespread, deliberate failure to enforce the law constitutes tyranny. We must not consent to live within a system when that system has been deliberately disabled from the top down by enemies of liberty. It is time for ordinary citizens to begin organizing our defense.

I’m interested in hearing from any individual who wants to work toward any one of the following:

  • prosecution or class action lawsuit against Progressives involved in a nationwide criminal conspiracy;
  • mass exodus to some state or group of states with the purpose of seceding from the union;
  • arming and organizing ourselves for deliberate overthrow of the government, if that becomes necessary for our security.

Those are desperate measures, but these are desperate times. At the very least, we must begin organizing for our defense.


UPDATE: Here’s a hello to all of you from Sadly, No! who are visiting on the suggestion of a clown calling himself “Tripp Palin.” I’d say that Tripp is off the mark on just about every item except this: I really am breathtakingly rude to some of my visitors, notably those who sneer and hurl invective. Like this comment I’m writing right this minute. Breathtakingly rude. Have a great day, and thanks for visiting.

Oh, and if you decide to leave a comment, even on an old article like this one, I’ll notice, and respond if I think it’s appropriate. Feel free.

Sure does feel good to be this rude…
