by Paul R. Hollrah –
In a February 7, 1894 speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Senator George F. Hoar (R-MA) said the following:
“Wherever there is a crevice in our protection of the freedom of the ballot, there you will find the Democratic Party trying to break through. Wherever we have left open an opportunity to get possession of an office, contrary to the true and constitutional will of the majority, there you will find that party pressing; there you will find that party exercising an ingenuity before which even the great inventive genius of the American People, exerted in other directions, fails and is insignificant in the comparison.”
Nothing much has changed in the nearly 120 years since Senator Hoar publicly “pinned the tail on the Democrat donkey.” In fact, we predicted in an April 2009 column that things would get much worse if Barack Obama were allowed to have his way with the 2010 census. For the past 155 years, since the founding of the Republican Party, Democrats have used every conceivable kind of fraud, violence, and intimidation to win elections; the one crime they had not attempted, until now, was the corruption of the U.S. Census Bureau.
Early in 2009, Obama announced that he was relieving the U.S. Commerce Department of its responsibility for conducting the 2010 census and moving that responsibility into the White House under the control of his then-Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, one of the most corrupt politicians the Chicago Democratic machine has ever produced. However, that decision proved so unpopular that Obama was forced to reconsider.
Instead, he nominated University of Michigan professor Robert Groves as director of the census. Groves is a fervent advocate of “statistical sampling,” a technique that uses “educated guesses” to determine population instead of actually counting heads. It is a technique that is easily manipulated and which (surprise, surprise) often results in the over-counting of Democratic constituencies.
However, undeterred by predictions of political manipulation, the Obama Administration pushed ahead with plans to open the 2010 census to massive corruption, announcing plans to “partner” with ACORN, the Democratic party’s principal vote fraud auxiliary.
In Chicago, a Better Government Association investigator checked into a skid-row flophouse under the fictitious name of “James Joyce,” spent five minutes in his room, and then checked out. Two weeks later, Chicago’s voter rolls contained the name “James Joyce,” along with 408 other Democratic “voters” supposedly residing in the same flophouse. In Chicago’s 27th Ward, registration lists showed scores of Democrats living in burned-out buildings, vacant lots, and homes where they clearly did not live. Seven persons were registered to vote at an address which turned out to be a pile of rubble.
The Washington Post has reported that, in St. Louis, the number of registered voters threatens to outnumber the total voting age population. A total of 247,135 St. Louis residents, dead and alive, were registered to vote compared with the city’s voting-age population of 258,532.
In Philadelphia, between March 23 and October 1, 2008, various Democratic groups, including ACORN, submitted over 252,595 registrations to the Philadelphia County Election Board. Of those, 57,435 were rejected due to fake social security numbers, incorrect dates of birth, forged signatures, addresses that did not exist, and duplicate registrations. In one case, a man was found to have registered more than 15 times between the Primary and the General Election.
The New York Post has reported that, in 2008, a Cleveland, Ohio man, Freddie Johnson, was given cash and cigarettes by ACORN voter registration workers in exchange for registering 72 times over an 18-month period. Johnson is quoted as saying, “Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they’ll give me a dollar to sign up.” He continued, “The ACORN people are everywhere, looking to sign people up. I tell them I’m already registered. The girl said, ‘You are?’ I say, ‘Yup,’ and then they say, ‘Can you just sign up again?’ ”
Yes, this is the 350,000-member Democratic Party auxiliary that the Obama Administration “partnered” with to count the U.S. population in the 2010 national census. And lest anyone assume that the relationship is either new or coincidental, it should be noted that, during the 2008 campaign, Obama paid ACORN $832,598 to register new voters. These were payments made to a group called Citizen Services, Inc. for what the campaign referred to as “advance work” in reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. The board of directors of ACORN and the board of directors of Citizen Services are one and the same.
Speaking on behalf of the Obama Administration, Census Bureau spokesman Scott Levenson has said, “The Census (Bureau) is a non-political agency and we’re dedicated to an accurate account (sic)… We have a lot of quality controls in place to keep any kind of systemic error or fraudulent behavior to affect (sic) the counts (wink, wink).”
In preparation for writing my April 2009 column, I spent the better part of a day in a U.S. Census Bureau training class in which enumerators and supervisors were trained for the 2010 census. I left in disgust in mid-afternoon when it became clear that Census Bureau officials were totally unaware (or didn’t want to know) that they had to be on the lookout for ACORN infiltrators who could be expected to fabricate large apartment buildings on vacant lots, inhabited by totally fictitious families… people who could be expected to vote Democratic in all future elections. Clearly, the level of official corruption created by a Democratic administration in control of the executive branch was inconceivable even to those who should be most aware of it.
But now, in November 2013, the American people are learning first hand of the residual corruption that has been created within the U.S. Census Bureau by Barack Obama and his agents. In a newly-published report prepared by John Crudele of the New York Post, a Census Bureau whistleblower is quoted as saying that, in October 2012, he was instructed by Census Bureau officials to falsify employment survey data.
Each month the Census Bureau, under contract to the U.S. Department of Labor, conducts interviews with some 60,000 households in six regions across the country to determine the previous month’s jobless statistics. However, in October 2012, just one month before Barack Obama stood for reelection, the Census Bureau was unable to reach the number of households necessary to qualify their survey as a “scientific” poll.
The whistleblower, Julius Buckmon, admitted in an interview with the Post that he was told by his Census Bureau superiors to, “Go ahead and fabricate it…” By not actually speaking with interviewees, Buckmon was able to “conduct” three times as many “interviews” as his co-workers. As a result of the falsified data, the Department of Labor was able to report a reduction in the unemployment rate from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September… just in time to reelect Obama to a second term. And when knowledgeable business leaders such as Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, raised questions about the validity of the September 2012 unemployment statistics, they were mercilessly ridiculed by Obama and his supporters.
Given ACORN’s record of corruption in support of the Democratic Party and its candidates, one wonders how many vacant lots, piles of rubbish, and burned-out buildings will appear on Census Bureau data bases as occupied residences, and how many fictitious people living in those fictitious residences have reported that they have found good-paying fictitious jobs.
In an April 7, 2009 report published by the Department of Homeland Security, the Obama Administration has branded those of us who believe in the sanctity of human life, who believe that marriage should be preserved as the union of one man and one woman, who have served their country in the armed forces, who support the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, who oppose opening our borders to illegal immigration, and who oppose government policies that would bury our children and grandchildren under a mountain of debt… as “racists and potential domestic terrorists.”
What we should all be asking ourselves is this: “Would such an administration also take overt steps to bring political benefits to itself and to the Democratic Party by corrupting the Census Bureau and the monthly employment figures published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics?” The answer is yes. We cannot assume that any action… legal or illegal, ethical or unethical, moral or immoral, violent or non-violent… is beyond the will and the capacity of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.
The evidence is irrefutable. Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Tim Scott (R-SC), and Representatives Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI), Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Steve King (R-IA), Trey Radel (R-FL), and Ted Yoho (R-FL), have all spoken publicly of the impeachment of Barack Obama. Every Republican member of Congress should be on that list.
Barack Obama is unfit for public office and it’s time that members of the House Judiciary Committee begin the process of removing him. | November 22, 2013
