Dick Morris: Dems Attempting to ‘Fix Presidential Elections’

Newsmax

Democrats are bypassing the Constitution as they try to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote as the means by which Americans elect presidents, says Dick Morris.

Supporters of the initiative says it levels the playing field by giving all voters the same amount of power, as opposed to grossly empowering voters in swing states, who enjoy the most attention of presidential candidates during the height of election season.

Morris says it’s a bold-faced attempt to neuter the GOP.

“If this thing passes, Republicans will never again win a presidential race and that’s why all the Democrats are lining up behind it,” Morris told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

The legislatures of 10 states and the District of Colombia have passed laws to pledge all of their electoral college representatives to select the winner of the national popular vote, and the measure has already passed one house in 10 other states. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to control the presidential selection. If the 10 states that have adopted the initiative in one house pass it into law, 242 electoral votes would be delegated to the winner of the national popular vote.

Morris, who penned a column on the topic for Newsmax earlier this week, said that Democrats are subverting the Constitutional amendment process with their state-to-state tactics. Constitutional amendments must be ratified in 38 states.

Morris said that if presidents are decided by popular vote, urban areas in traditionally Democratic states would gain new power while the doors to voter fraud would be kicked open.

“First of all, it would [spur] the urban Democratic machines in places like Chicago and D.C. and New York that don’t work too hard at getting out the vote because the states are blue anyway, but now if the popular vote matters, they’ll work like demons in getting out the vote including committing voter fraud,” he said.

“Secondly, right now, if things come down to one state like Florida in the Electoral College, you could look at voter fraud in Florida and probably stop it from ruining the election, but if the fraud could be committed in any precinct in the 50 states and it counts in the popular vote, it’s too large a problem ever to be able to either track or to solve.”

Morris was adamant that this empowerment of urban areas through the popular vote would unfairly benefit Democrats.

“So there’s a reason that of the 20 states that have either adopted this or one House has adopted it, 18 of them are blue states… it’s because this is a conspiracy by the Democratic party to fix presidential elections for the indefinite future,” he said.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!

In his own words: Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam

American Thinker

A website called Now The End Begins has compiled 40 comments by Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam. Collectively, they create quite an interesting picture.  I admit that there may be instances of the president speaking as favorably of Christianity as he does of Islam, but I am not aware of them. I do remember in the 2008 campaign that he said he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, and that was in response to public awareness of his attendance at Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church, Trinity United. What the president left unsaid is the nature of Jesus as understood in Black Liberation Theology. But that is a discussion for another time.

The list has been reprinted here and here. (hat tip: iOwnTheWorld.com). See what you think:

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Great Depression workers benefit takers L

Family Security Matters

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work – in the private sector – and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.

Obama’s thug administration

 

CFP

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory.

 

The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed.

Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American people were afraid of having an honest discussion about race.

MARTIAL LAW ALERT: Obama CONFISCATES ALL APACHE ATTACK HELICOPTERS From The Governors of ALL 50 STATES

681031059432351892-599x275

The Daily Sheeple

As if the Obama administration’s purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spyingprogram was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run “the most transparent administration in history” has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard.

In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and give them to the active duty Army.

In exchange for the heavily armed and highly maneuverable choppers, Guard units will receive 111 UH-60 Blackhawk transport helicopters from the Army, Defense One reports.

What was that again about Al-Qaeda on the run?

American Thinker

From the US Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia comes an Emergency Message for US citizens which transmits a world wide caution on continuing threats from terrorist groups.  The entire document gives the lie to Obama’s declaration from a few years ago that Al-Qaida is in full retreat.  Some excerpts:

Kidnappings and hostage events involving U.S. citizens have become increasingly prevalent (emphasis added) as al Qa`ida and its affiliates have increased attempts to finance their operations through kidnapping for ransom operations. Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are particularly effective with kidnapping for ransom and are using ransom money to fund the range of their activities.

It also seems that since the Obama declaration of victory, al-Qaida has not suffered one iota and is capable of attacks worldwide using its standard terror tactics:

Information also suggests that al-Qa’ida and its affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics including suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings.

Read the whole thing since it gives an excellent summation of terrorist operations around the globe.  What is particularly damning is the situation in the Philippines.  Under Bush ’43, US Special Forces and their Philippine counterparts rendered Abu Sayyaf virtually impotent by a series of operations which eliminated the group’s leaders and several of their successors.  Under Obama, Abu Sayyaf and other Islamic groups have had a resurgence in Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago:

In September 2013, elements of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) occupied portions of the city of Zamboanga and engaged in a lengthy battle with security forces which reduced large parts of the city to rubble.  [snip]  On November 15, 2013, gunmen, linked to the Abu Sayyaf Group, raided a resort on Pom Pom Island off the eastern coast of Sabah, killing a tourist from Taiwan and taking his wife hostage.

I await the national security correspondents of the MSM for their analysis of this warning, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Down the Slippery Slope: A Timeline of Social Revolution (in the US)

fiscal-cliff

Free Republic

It is certainly not breaking news to assert that America is in cultural decline. Many aspects of this decline have been widely documented: the breakdown of the family, threats to life, and ever increasing secularization.

My intent in this article is to draw together the consistent progression of this cultural decline so that we can step back and examine the path of the social revolution that has been underway in America for some time. As we see, the undermining of family and life is not something new.

I have broken the following timeline into several stages. That is not to say that the only developments of this time concerned a single matter. Rather, the name marks the major turning point of that stage. I have also included a few international events, when they seem indicative of broader social change.
