Adamo: Eric Holder’s End Game - Stealing The November Elections

By Christopher G. Adamo

James O’Keefe has struck again. And once more, he deserves a medal for his heroic operation. In 2009, he and an accomplice, Hannah Giles, laid bare the rampant criminal activities being perpetrated nationwide by ACORN, the subversive network of leftist activists whose seditious political work had previously remained largely under the radar. As a result of that exposure, ACORN was forced to officially disband and reorganize, though its activity is ongoing.

This time, O’Keefe spotlighted the epidemic of deliberate vote fraud that liberals have promoted throughout the country in recent years, and which portends the destruction of its foundations if not soon confronted and corrected. And though O’Keefe did not take his sting operation directly to the Department of Justice, by making his case so profoundly, he essentially put the nation’s highest law enforcement office on notice that it will be held accountable for its action, and perhaps more so for its inaction when presented with such incontrovertible evidence of rampant criminal malfeasance at the voting booth.

By now the account of O’Keefe’s stunning maneuver has been widely retold. In short, he went to the very polling place where Eric Holder (Barack Obama’s Attorney General) would vote, and proved that current voter identification and verification practices are so inadequate as to permit O’Keefe to accept a ballot and vote in Holder’s name, had he a mind to do so. This is particularly incriminating since it is Holder who has done more than any other high official to purposefully undermine the voting process in this country.

Beginning with his contemptible decision to ignore the flagrant acts of voter intimidation perpetrated by members of the “New Black Panther” organization in Philadelphia in 2009, Holder has an unbroken track record of choosing to overlook criminal behavior based not on the real substance of the law or the nature of any breaches, but on whether or not the liberal agenda will be served or harmed by a strenuous legal response.

J. Christian Adams, formerly an attorney at the Voting Rights Section of the Department of Justice, eventually left his position and wrote an expose on the racial motivations which completely poisoned the department on Holder’s watch. In his book, he grimly warned America that the end result of this violation of trust, if not appropriately addressed, would be “lawlessness.”

In like manner, O’Keefe rendered proof positive that organized hordes of illegal “voters” can significantly skew the results of elections throughout the nation, just by claiming the identities of registered voters in those particular districts. And to nobody’s real surprise, Eric Holder is the most vigorous champion of maintaining the present system just as it is, while seeking to disparage and discredit O’Keefe.

Amazingly, Holder can apparently remain totally oblivious to flagrant crime if it serves his interests, while summoning an uncanny ability to concoct misdeeds where none have occurred. For just as resolutely as he refused to concede perpetration of crimes by the New Black Panthers, he fiercely pursues the ostensible possibility of “voter intimidation” elsewhere in the nation, absent any credible accusations from disenfranchised voters, but instead based on the premise that merely requiring legitimate identification might result in such.

So while the “Justice” Department cannot bring itself to protect white voters, who were criminally prevented from voting in Philadelphia, it is in hot pursuit of those “lawbreakers” in the state governments of Texas and South Carolina who want proper identification from would-be voters in their jurisdictions. In truth Holder is not bothered by the illegal activities of “New Black Panthers” since they do not threaten the advance of liberalism, but efforts to keep the polling places honest and upright clearly endanger the aspirations of the political left.

What could possibly be the motivation of the Justice Department in such circumstances, other than to insidiously seize control of the ballot box, and thereby predetermine the outcome of the nation’s elections? Or perhaps more accurately, can any other reasonable explanation be offered in defense of this flagrantly biased and ideologically driven course of action?

Meanwhile, it is necessary to recall Holder’s other malignant attack on state sovereignty, and the very ability of states to maintain their integrity. In April of 2010, Arizona passed a law requiring the verification of identification of individuals caught in crimes who might possibly be illegal aliens. Of course, this resulted in an incredible outcry from every subversive group seeking the eradication of America’s borders. Before the law could take effect, Holder led the charge to have it overturned. Most incredibly, his premise was that Arizona’s effort to reduce the flood of illegals infringed on the jurisdiction of the federal government which, of course, would do nothing to improve the situation.

Since that time, Holder has taken similar action against Alabama, where a comparable measure was signed into law in 2011. Again, the DOJ premise is that states cannot interfere in a matter that it claims to be under federal authority. And in keeping with the betrayal of Arizona, Holder’s Department is unwilling to lift a finger to alleviate the influx of illegals into Alabama.

After Barack Obama exposed the nation to the ugly realities of liberalism in 2009 and 2010, Democrat political fortunes tanked, culminating in the rout of the Democrat controlled Congress in 2010. Since then, Barack Obama’s approval ratings have plummeted, and prospects for a rally are looking increasingly bleak. With the jobs market continuing to languish, energy costs skyrocketing, and America’s standing in the world dropping to historically low levels, it seems increasingly unlikely that an open and honest election will benefit the liberals. So of course they are looking for ways to affect the ballot box through stealthy and dishonest tactics. And as abhorrent as this prospect may be, it is far worse that an election victory gained in such a manner would mark the end of any possibility that real America could ever again triumph through legal and peaceable means.

    If a man or a party would steal your hard earned labor with a government tax gun at your head, just what makes the American people think for one moment that they, when given unlimited power over you, would not try to steal your election? “ITS ABOUT THE DISHONESTLY STUPID” ,,,which when a party running the government becomes the perpetrator of the dishonestly, by ignoring and disabling the Constitution which is the very thing created to put chains upon this type of dishonesty, becomes a recipe for national disaster. What is it about modern American citizens who have embraced a subliminal desire to self-flagellate themselves in this way? Is this the fruits of Liberal sown cumulative American guilt for becoming the greatest and wealthiest nation ever, that we should seek to balance the scales psychologically with self imposed and self-elected people and parties of defeat?

    Let me assure you my fellow Americans, you ARE worthy as individuals and as a nation, to enjoy the fruits of your success and the fruits of your labor and need not answer to ANYONE who would manipulate you through guilt by association with success,,,,,,which is what Obama’s entire campaign will consist of, starting with attacking our very successful general who is about to gather an army of the light to defeat this self-defeating mindset promulgated by Obama, the Democrats and their guilt ridden, guilt inducing army of darkness.

    It is time to not only re-assume the paradigm of success in this nation, but celebrate it in its fullness, and cast off these debilitating democrat demagogues of depression and guilt.

      I couldn’t have put it better myself. I grew up when being Americas meant I CAN. We have been a nation of wimps since the late 60′s maybe early ’70′s. We have fallen into being ruled by the 20% who believe that we should assimilate to all other cultures, should speak PC, because we MIGHT hurt someone’s feelings. In other words, our Republic has disintegrated into a Democracy-like group who are afraid to be themselves, afraid to speak their minds, well, just a bunch of jelly-kneed folks who wander aimlessly and care only about the 2 feet of space around them. We are AMERICANS, damnit, we do not have leaders who bow to others, need approval from the UN, NATO or any other international group. However, I watched a congressional hearing where All the (PHONY) President’s men said that we should not act on ANYTHING without international approval. To a man, ALL the Obamatrons who are running this circus, running OUR country into the ground believe that our country is part of a world filled with mediocracy, run by socialists (actually Obama was raised a Stalinist) and giving up our exceptionality, our pride, and our freedom’s and right’s as payment for playing with the UN. Get the US OUT of the UN, send the UN to Brussels and impeach Obama and all his leftist czars, and lead them out the FRONT DOOR of the White House in the shackles they deserve to a maximum security prison for the 3 1/2 years of felonies they have committed.

      Great post iluminatuo! My husband and my father both put on uniforms to fight for the country they loved. My Father was in the 101st Airborne in WWII and my husband served during the Viet Nam era. The very least those of us who didn’t wear a uniform can do is support our country with words to those who will listen. I am too old to wear a uniform, but it has been said that the pen is mightier than the sword. I will do everything I can to inform people of how the “not-your-father’s” Dumbocrats are destroying their country. Thank you.

For those who wish to have “our” wealth shared without lifting a finger, what is to happen after the election when the workers give up working as it doesn’t benefit them and the government can’t impose taxes to support you? Then where do your handouts come from? We are all headed in the direction of disaster if some form of reality doesn’t set in and soon!

      To: Jeff and Angry Grandma,

      Jeff, first of all…you NAILED IT! I couldn’t have put it better. Grandma, now to answer your question…you want to know “what will it take” to CHANGE things from their current course, and I don’t mean the CHANGE that has been brought to Washington right now either…where The Black Panthers are allowed to actually put a Dead or Alive Bounty on Zimmerman’s head, while Holder, as well as other gov’t officials just act as if that’s a NORMAL policy??? Things will never get better unless those of us who feel the same, actually UNITE in an Organitzation and put EXTREME pressure on the elected Officials, and pool our money to become powerful enought to FORCE them to do away with Voter Fraud(AND the Black Panters and the limbs of ACORN that are still alive and well. Voter fraud will help Obama go back into office if something isn’t done quickly. Get prepared to MARCH IN THE STREETS to protect OUR rights. That’s what it’s going to take. The Obama Administration is taking away our jobs, yet taxing us for all those ENTITLED PEOPLE too lazy to work in a pie Factory and also having us pick up the tab for mowing the lawns, painting and maintenance of all these bank-foreclosed properties too. And there’s no such thing as even a Cost of Living Raise anymore,,,,so what’s a few days off from work to MARCH IN THE STREETS and demand our Rights? Also, did you know it’s rumored that Obama and his crew are still trying to slide a back-door legislation thru to eventaully take the guns from Americans? People better wake up! And yeah, I believe there’s some EXTREME racial profiling going on! Now we all know if whites hung around the voting polls intimidating voters to pressure and be sure they voted a certain way AND if whites actually put out a BOUNTY on a back’s head.”wanted dead or alive,” what do you think would happen? That’s my point. This mess has gone too far. Whites are TOO CIVILIZED! Ever notice how the “squeeky wheel ALWAYS get the oil?” Where’s the Justice Department now? For THAT matter, where’s any local officials who have spoken out and said what’s been threatened is WRONG? “FED UP”

    Did anyone expect anything else from this administration? I know I didn’t, as I’ve been saying all along that they intend to win.

    Erik Holder is nothing more than a rabble rouser in a suit and tie and has done nothing to contribute to justice since he’s been in office. He’s in a position now where he turns a blind eye to everything that goes against his opinions, especially in regards to race. Holder refused to bring charges against the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia who openly practiced voter intimidation and demanded that the lawyers working on the case dismiss the entire incident.

    The whistleblower, that Mr. Adama speaks about, J. Christian Adams, claimed that Holder decides cases according to race where Blacks and Whites are involved which was evident in the case of the Panthers. The end result was that Adams was smeared from here to kingdom come while Holder is still in office going “fast and furious.” He and Obama intend to still be in power come November — one way or the other!

    Let’s face it! We are being governed by corrupt, career criminals who come in all colors but the lawlessness that has increased in this administration is by far the most obvious and less easily contained.

    The Republicans should demand on a daily basis that Obama remove Eric Holder from the DOJ immediately. He is a criminal and has obviously shown that he is incapable of dealing justice. He is a racist who is using his authority to allow blacks to get a free pass.

    Arizona controls its borders from the states around it asking people coming in not to bring in fresh fruit. How is it that it can’t control the border to the South? The Federal government has chosen to do nothing. It has chosen to not enforce its own laws. That ought to be grounds in itself for a law suit….or civil disobedience by the State of Arizona.

      The USA voting tabulation being turned over to a Spanish company worries me a LOT, because it can not only jigger the votes for President, but also the House and the Senate, where Pubbies might get majorities, and COULD impeach and convict! This puts the entire election all down the ticket at terrible risk.

    They have the equipment all set up to control the ballot boxes in November. In my County the SEIU, one of the Liberal ACORN type organizations, has control of the Electronic Voting machines….they do the setup and ‘calibration’ or whatever other processes are needed for the operation of the voting machine. Since it is essentially a computer memory I’m sure it can be set up to make as many inputs as is desired, regardless of the actual input, to be a vote for Obama or whoever.
    My guess is that they have such control of almost all the electronic machines nationwide. Of Course, they will not need them in New York, Illinois, California, as other such Liberal states.
    His second term will NOT BE LIKE THE LAST. He will probably, using the latest defense powers given him (or taken by him) to take control of almost everything in the country because of a ‘supposed’ terrorist or other problem, he can declare an emergency, Martial Law, and declare himself dictator, disband the Legislative and maybe even the Judicial Branches. There are rumors of many underground cells of islamic Brotherhood groups and all the Hamas he imported with taxpayer monies the can become his ‘civilian police force’ that he previously said he wanted.

    MEANWHILE, LEGISLATIVE AND JUDICIAL BRANCHES KOWTOW AND DO NOTHING.

      You don’t remember the NBP goons outside the voting location with their nightsticks during the 2008 elections?
      Charges were brought and Holder/DOJ decided to make sure that the prosecution of these goons was HALTED.
      They had a case but Holder personally seems to have intervened to block a proper process against these guys.
      Just like Zimmerman now, these NBP guys should have been arrested and have their day in court!

    I’d like to make a couple of comments about the voting registration laws in Texas and South Carolina. First off, these states have nobody to blame but themselves for the scrutiny they receive from the justice department. States that have a history of discriminatory voting laws have to get their laws approved by the justice department. Those states include Texas, North Carolina and 14 other states. And you can bet the boys in charge of making those reviews are going to make damn sure that no changes will be made that even have a hint of discrimination. In Texas, poor people and minority groups are less likely to have picture IDs. Therefore the law can arguably be considered a barrier to being able to vote.

    I learned from this blog earlier that the cards are free, but is there an aggressive PR plan in the media explaining the new laws? And how easy is it for people who rely on the busses for transportation, and also are likely to have inflexible work schedules to make application? I don’t know.

    I think the IDs are a good idea and I also think that with some changes, Texas will get their law. Obama doesn’t own all the judges in the justice department. There are some Republicans, too.

      Jeffpat, if I get it correctly, but the Texans on here can correct me, they can even come to the voting location and on the spot get a special ballot and fill in forms to get a voter ID, and I believe that Texas also intends to provide them for FREE. They can complete the entire process by mail, so I think the point of costs and the point of work schedules and buses is MOOT.
      But like I said, it’s possible that this was one of the other Vote ID states.

      “In Texas, poor people and minority groups are less likely to have picture IDs. . .people who rely on the busses for transportation, and also are likely to have inflexible work schedules to make application?”

      Jeffpat, you are repeating all the excuses the Democrats use for criticizing photo ID’s. Do you know anyone who is too poor to catch a bus and go get free a Photo ID? If so, ask them how they cash a check, use an EBT card, board a plane, rent a movie, or the other hundreds of things they do that require a photo ID. The ONLY reason for requiring Photo ID’s when voting is to curb the fraud in elections such as illegal aliens voting, non-citizens voting, people using falsified voter registrations, etc.

      For quite some time, every election has produced a very low turnout. There are a lot of people who are eligible to vote that don’t even bother to vote. Usually only about 20%-25% of the eligible voters exercise their privilege. I would suggest that if you went door-to-door to those who
      are “poor”, “less fortunate”, or “minority” and delivered a photo ID to them, they still wouldn’t vote. They wouldn’t take the bus to the polling place. Why do you think the Democrats organize groups to go out and bring voters to the polls and use activist groups to produce fradulent registrations?

    South Carolina’s proposed laws are far more suspect than Texas’ are.

    In addition to the ID requirement, they have reduced the days for early voting and reduced the time frame for getting registered. Minorities are more likely to vote early, and minorities are more likely to get registered through registration drives. Just by the nature of the process, voter registration drives need more time to get their paperwork in. This means that in addition to more minorities being unable to schedule the time to vote, fewer will make the registration deadline. Since restrictions are being placed on two services most used by minorities, Can it be argued that the purpose is to reduce minority voting?

      I do not for one second believe that the intention of South Carolina or any other state that is trying to require Voter ID is to reduce minority voting, but only to reduce the risk of voter fraud.
      After being informed about the risk that minorities might not be able to satisfy all requirements in time, most states have bent over backwards to try to make accommodations to remedy any reasonable criticism.

      Spurious arguments, Jeffpat. When I was younger, there was NO “early voting”, and absentee voting was restricted to its proper purpose, for those out of town, the sick and the elderly. We all found our way to the polls ON voting day. It was a big deal.

      I am sick and tired of all the whining about voters being “disenfranchised”… Bee-Ess. Every effort is being made to accommodate people who don’t have ID (and who doesn’t these days, except illegals?), don’t have cars, etc. BUT THEY have to make the effort, instead of sitting around whining, expecting everything to be done for them by someone else.

      Look, voting is a privilege AND a responsibility in a republic like ours. We are so blessed to live in a nation where there is universal suffrage, open elections, people who drive others to the polls, even early voting. Yes, it takes EFFORT… But think about all those people who walked ALL DAY to vote in Iraq’s first open elections after Saddam. THERE are people who cherish the right to vote, and understand what a blessing it is, even though it creates some hardship on them. They should be an example to the lazy, entitled whiners here!

      These whiners should be ashamed of themselves, make whatever effort is required to vote, and GROW UP. And Holder and his execrable ilk should just BUTT OUT.

      Many of these comments would lead one to believe that an individual is required to register to vote every year or before every election. Once a voter is registered, if he votes regularly he remains on the voter rolls. He must keep his address current so the election board will know which precinct he should use. But this debate about the strict voter laws and how restrictive they are has only become an issue because the Democrats are using it as a distraction from the real issue–voter fraud.

      @jeffpat, I’m having trouble believing minorities “are unable to schedule the time to vote”, can’t get to a polling place between 6AM and 8PM and don’t have a picture ID. You don’t schedule a vote, you get off your butt and do it, they have 12 hours to get there and you can’t cash a check (welfare or otherwise) without a photo ID. How do our seniors, who are the largest voting block in the US, manage to vote? Stop making excuses for lazy behavior!

      The Marxocrat’s don’t have the number’s like they use to, so they must maintain a large enough potential voter pool that they can draw upon when needed; i.e. early voting, voting by mail etc. Their ‘vote by proxy’ scam has been very successful up to now. Voter ID is a direct threat to this scheme. The electronic voting is VERY scary indeed. American’s need to raise holy hell with Congress to get this out of Soros’s mitts because he’ll just pass on the code to Anonymous to rewrite. I would add one more requirement in addition to a photo ID when registering and voting…….a thumbprint.

    “In April of 2010, Arizona passed a law requiring the verification of identification of individuals caught in crimes who might possibly be illegal aliens.”

    Adamo has this wrong. The law didn’t say ‘caught’ in crimes. It said ‘suspected’ in crimes. That can mean anyone on the street. That law was totally unconstitutional or unenforceable on many levels. For one thing, how can you think someone might be an illegal alien without profiling? For another thing, what if you are a US citizen and can’t provide an ID when asked? You could be arrested. The law would mean that US citizens who look like foreigners would be forced to carry identification or risk arrest. What, are we turning into a police state where its citizens must carry papers? Or worse yet, a state where only the brown citizens must carry papers?

    This is not what America is supposed to be.

      Okay, i guess it was suspected in crimes. That still doesn’t mean that police can just stop just anybody on the streets. The Arizona Law had plenty of supporting text in it to guarantee that only reasonable suspicion (I will leave it up to the legal experts to further explain that)would allow a police officer to check for identity. Simple profiling on race was absolutely not enough indication (reasonable suspicion) to allow a policeman to check for an ID.
      I think you’re assumptions are way too simplistic and not reflective both of the intention and the actual text of the Arizona Law.

      But let me ask you a simple question, what do you think we should do about illegal immigrants?

    I agree with you. The problem is that the result is what matters; not the intention. I’ll also agree that fraud is a problem, but the solution can’t risk alienating certain voting blocks. Otherwise we’re setting ourselves up for controversies like we’re getting now.

    That’s not true. I know this is anecdotal, but I bartended my way through college which meant I was on the streets in the early hours of the morning most mornings. I was often stopped by the police for ‘suspicious behavior.’ And I’m a white guy.

      Yes, but you’re a very suspicious looking white guy early in the morning after drinking hours, right?

      And if they stopped you, that doesn’t mean they arrested you, maybe they just talked to you to make sure you were okay? :)

    “what do you think we should do about illegal immigrants?”

    You can approach a problem considering the way people will act or the way we want people to act. We invest way too many resources on the latter, which will always get resistance. As a country we spend much more on law enforcement and incarceration than any other developed country. We have 760 people in prison for every 100,000 of our population. England is number two with only 152. Our hard fisted approach to illegal immigration, like some other legal conundrums, is going to bleed us dry. I think we should approach illegal immigration in a way that works with the way that people do act. We should eliminate the benefits if illegal immigration through more effective legal immigration policy. If a Mexican wants to work here, then fine, give him a work visa. If we let the people in who want to be in for honest reasons, then we can concentrate our resources on the real criminals. What do you think?

    I want people to act in a legal way! If we as a nation have created laws to protect ourself against a wave of immigrants that just come here to take (our) jobs, don’t you think we ought to make sure we uphold those laws? Unless we no longer think those laws are reasonable. In that case, the laws are still valid, until the point in time where they are replaced/removed.
    I do agree with you, that we have ridiculously high numbers of people in prisons. However, that’s a separate issue from illegal immigration alltogether.
    First, we need to STOP any further illegal immigration.
    Once we know how to do that, we need to address those millions already in this country.
    They should not instantly be given amnesty or more rights than those immigrants who came here legally.
    However, given the huge numbers, at this point the only realistic approach would be to find a process to legalize the presence of those that are deserving (contribute to society, not having committed other crimes than entering illegally, and probably having been here a certain amount of time already) I’m sure we could come up with some sort of compromise list of requirements for some of those people to get a legal status. Maybe they need to pay a fine as well.
    POssibly we can create a statue of limitations term especially for illegal immigration, but they would still need to apply for legal status, and go through the process!
    And since this all is going to cost loads of money to accomplish, we have to talk about who is going to pay for all this, don’t you agree?

    Coming back to our current law: NO, we cannot just give a work permit and green card to anyone that wants to come work here. There are already enough legal residents and citizens that don’t have a job and want to work here! Those that are here legally come FIRST, not LAST

    It is looking more and more like Liberals can only be defeated by “Bible thumping, gun toting” American Patriots. And they should leave the Bibles at home when they go out to face these slimy liberals.
