Did Harry Reid steal Nevada? The evidence, and how you can help…

with 64 comments

First, there is the fact that Sharron Angle was ahead – and gaining steam – in all major polls before the election, and that comparable polling data accurately predicted race outcomes in analogous races (see Free Republic).

Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet further explains, at Dark Politricks‘ blog:

“Four separate Rasmussen polls prior to the election had Angle ahead. Two weeks before Super Tuesday, she held a 50% to 47% lead over Reid. One week prior to voting, on October 26, her lead was extended to four points, with Angle at 49% and Reid at 45%.”

“To have a nine point swing, from Angle enjoying a four point lead just a week before the election, to Reid winning the seat by a clear five points, is highly suspicious…Nine points is not within the margin of error for polls, especially those conducted by Rasmussen, which is considered to be one of if not the most credible polling agency.”

Then there were reports of voting machines that were automatically checking Harry Reid’s name, the same voting machines that were serviced by pro-Harry Reid, pro-Democrat Service Employees International Union members.  These voting machines have received undeserved (or deserved, depending on one’s perspective) support from Harry Reid, even though they are the same “100 percent unverifiable, error-prone, hackable, illegally-certified, electronic voting systems the state forces all voters to use at the polling place.” The voting machine issues were observed in Clark County, “where three quarters of Nevada’s residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son Rory is a county commissioner.”

Then, as reported in The Washington Examiner, there were casinos, like Harrah’s and MGM (remember this, my friends, next time you are in Nevada), who engaged in extraordinary measures to get their employees to vote, as instructed by a Harry Reid staffer: who “told Harrah’s it needed to ‘put a headlock’ on its supervisors ‘to get them to follow through.’” Further, “This plea was distributed to senior executives throughout the company by a Harrah’s vice president, Marybel Batjer. Batjer demanded that those executives ‘do whatever we need to do to get the supervisors to know that there is NOTHING more important than to get employees out to vote. Waking up to a defeat of Harry Reid Nov 3rd will be devastating for our industry’s future.’”

“Harrah’s did just that, getting headcounts and insisting that supervisors explain why their employees had not yet voted. They also coordinated with employee unions to get buses and shuttles to take the employees to the polls.

“This was not a situation where a corporation was simply encouraging its employees to go to the polls and vote for their candidate of choice — Harrah’s was telling its employees how important it was to elect Reid, setting up a whole system to coerce its employees to vote, even making records of who had not voted.

“Both Harrah’s and the unions spend money, in terms of supervisor and employee resources on company time, and the cost of shuttles, etc., not merely in a nonpartisan way to get out the vote, but to facilitate votes for Reid.”

It was reported that the casino voting effort was done in conjunction with Culinary Local 226, a heavy Reid supporter that represents about 60,000 casino workers. Sharron Angle lost by 40,669 votes.

Finally, there is the illegal immigrant issue. From an alert issued by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC:

“The reports and indications also suggest the presence of non citizen voters comprised of legal and illegal immigrants voting in elections. It is a felony for any non citizen to vote in a US election and while the scale of involvement is unknown it could be very substantial in some areas including North Carolina, Nevada, Colorado, and Washington state. In many of these areas, Democratic candidates campaigned and appealed to illegal aliens, and deployed illegals to bring out similar voters.

The Democratic ‘Get Out The Vote’ (GOTV) mechanisms have no interest or ability to discern voters who are American citizens versus non citizens.”

One wonders if Harrah’s and MGM expended the effort to insure that all of their Nevada employees are legal immigrants.

An investigation into the Nevada Senate election is underway, headed by http://www.peoplev.us, and is focused on uncovering polling errors and election anomalies (their organization/website is dedicated to repealing Obamacare, but they are also investigating the Nevada Senate race).  The purpose of the investigation is to determine whether or not the People of Nevada received a fair and impartial election.  If it can be proven that the People of Nevada did not, appropriate actions will be taken to attempt to rectify the situation.  Anyone wishing to donate to assist them in their investigation is encouraged to do so by visiting http://peoplev.us/election.aspx and clicking on the donation tab. $500,000 is needed for the investigative portion, and more will be needed for the legal and marketing portion, should anomalies be uncovered.

Now Sharron Angle has a pastor problem? (Harry Reid’s a Mormon, but so is Glenn Beck…)

with 3 comments

As reported in Politics Daily (‘Mormons Are a Cult,’ He Says. Now Sharron Angle Has a Pastor Problem):

“…But now explosive statements about Mormons by Angle’s longtime pastor* are causing the Republican candidate and Tea Party champion more headaches as her campaign enters the home stretch.

“Pastor John Reed of Sonrise Church in Reno, a non-denominational, evangelical-style church where Angle was an active member for many years, calls Mormonism a ‘cult’ and Reid, the majority leader and a Mormon, ‘a powerful person in a cult’ whose position should ‘alarm’ people.”

Now Sharron Angle has a pastor problem?? How is it equivalent to compare a pastor who blames America for 9/11 by exclaiming, “America’s chickens are coming home to roost!”, and “God damn America!” with a pastor who explains that Mormonism is a cult?  Most of mainstream Christianity and America believe that Mormonism is a cult.

Nevertheless, if Mike Huckabee (a Christian not-so-fiscally-conservative “conservative“: “His critics say that when Huckabee was governor of Arkansas, he was a big spender and a big taxer“) were running against Glenn Beck (a Mormon, and a real fiscal conservative), I would vote for Glenn Beck. Does the Mormon issue stop David Barton, a devout Christian, from joining forces with Glenn Beck (a Mormon) and even appearing as a regular guest on his show? It does not.  Is it relevant for this election whether or not Harry Reid is a Mormon? It is not.

What IS relevant is this: Which candidate most closely espouses God’s most fundamental value: liberty? God so loved liberty (and us) that He allowed the fall of the entire human race because of it. As our Founders said in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator  (yes, BY THEIR CREATOR, President Obama) with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  Thomas Jefferson said, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.” As my pastor, John Kirkwood (http://www.gracebeliever.com), said, in explaining that God, although He could, does not force us to love or serve Him: “Without free will [liberty], God isn’t God. What do you call forced love? Answer: rape. What do you call forced servitude? Answer: slavery”.

Without liberty, the rest doesn’t matter. And by his actions, Harry Reid has indicated that liberty is NOT one of his fundamental values.

 

*As an aside, Sarah Palin reported in Going Rogue how the press would hound her friends and acquaintances in any attempt to dig up dirt on her. Her friends would attempt to defend her and afterward be dismayed at how their comments, meant to defend her, were twisted to make her look bad. Therefore, a word or two of advice to Sharron’s friends/pastors: don’t do press interviews on behalf of/in defense of Sharron Angle.

Sharron Angle: This town is not my home…

leave a comment »

I was in Washington DC a few weeks ago and was invited by Sharron Angle to observe her interview with Fox News’ Brett Baier in the studio.  She did a great job articulating conservative principles in the interview, especially defending returning to LOCAL control the functions of the EPA, Department of Education, Department of Energy, etc.  Because, according to the tenth Amendment, only the enumerated powers listed in the Constitution are reserved for the Federal Government.  The rest are reserved for the states or other local authority. She is right on.

But I was particularly struck by something she said in passing off-camera. Someone on the Fox team remarked to her that she would possibly be moving to Washington DC. She said, “No, I’m not moving here; I’m just a visitor here.  My responsibility is to the people of Nevada.” She also remarked to me that to guard against becoming out-of-touch with Nevada, it was very important to her that she NOT live in DC.

Sharron once wrote on a related topic, incumbency, in a book draft she was considering publishing (quoted with permission):

“One of the reasons our nation is in such great trouble is that the legislative branches of state and national governments have been populated by professional, career politicians. This was never intended by our founders, and the problem is very simple. The interests of career politicians are never aligned with the interests of the folks back home. To have a career and job security, the politician must first bow to the demands of those powerful forces that can get him or her re-elected.

“The first priority of the career politician is protecting the incumbency. The ideal to serve for a few years to share the burden of representation on behalf of their communities as the Founders intended has long been abandoned. It has been replaced be those wanting full-time employment in government and having a desire to change our culture and governance along the leftist lines prevalent in most educational institutions. Since the sixties, schools have been teaching that government is too complex for amateurs and should be entrusted only to professionals who have absorbed the faddish teachings of this era.

“Protecting incumbency requires extensive fund raising, political alliances, competent image makers and campaign managers. None of these things are consistent with representing the genuine interests of the folks back home. On the other hand, the paybacks to that coalition often require selling out the interests of the folks back home in favor of such lobbyists and power brokers. Also disgracefully, politicians have subsequently rigged a self-serving system of enormous rewards and benefits, travel both foreign and domestic, gold-plated health care coverage, generous salaries and allowances, pensions representing full salaries for life after short periods of service, and power and prestige which rivals that of royalty – all motivations to hold on to their ‘careers’ at any cost.”

Sharron Angle is not interested in becoming one of the Washington elite. She is interested in serving “We the People“. God-speed, Sharron Angle.

Sharron Angle entrapped by fake Tea Party candidate

leave a comment »

From the Las Vegas Sun:

“Angle: ‘I’m not sure I can win’ if Ashjian’s in, nat’l GOPers ‘have lost their principles,’ need to ‘leave me alone”

“That’s just some of what GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle said during a meeting Wednesday evening with Tea Party of Nevada candidate Scott Ashjian and Tea Party of Nevada Chairman Sid James at the home of Richard Ziser, who lost to Harry Reid in 1994 and now is an adviser to the Angle campaign and also participated in the conversation.

“A tape of the 38-minute meeting that I have obtained provides a rare window into the kinds of discussions that take place during campaigns behind closed doors, redolent of the authenticity that disappears in public or in TV ads.”

Ah, yes, that would be a tape you (Jon Ralston, no friend of Sharron Angle), obtained from Scott Ashjian himself, who taped the whole conversation with Sharron Angle without her knowledge.  In the interest of full disclosure, you might have revealed that in the article, Jon Ralston.

Continuing from the Las Vegas Sun:

“Angle expresses disdain for the national GOP, which she says she now has ‘in a box’ because she won the primary, which caused the DC types after her June 8 victory to still be ‘moaning and groaning and weeping and gnashing teeth over Sue Lowden.’ Later, she tries to persuade Ashjian to endorse her because she will have ‘juice’ he can tap into to get access to Sens. Jim DeMint, Tom Coburn and Mitch McConnell.

“I can just hear it now: The woman who calls the majority leader ‘Let’s Make a Deal Harry Reid’ becomes ‘Let’s Make a Deal Sharron Angle’”.

Excuse me? Access to meetings with political figures is not the same as the thuggery and bribery that Harry Reid employed to ram Obamacare through the Senate against the will of the American people, and you know it, Jon Ralston.  She is promising Ashjian nothing.

And, she DID win IN SPITE OF the Republican establishment, the same Republican establishment who initially refused to endorse Christine O’Donnell.  Umm, is this a shock to anyone?

Interestingly, the Tea Party Express had a message for Scott Ashjian back in March:

“We at the Tea Party Express have a message for Scott Ashjian, who has been trying to pretend that he’s part of the Tea Party movement – get lost!” says Mark Williams, chairman of the Tea Party Express, in the video. “None of us have ever heard of you or seen you at a Tea Party rally. Nothing. We think you are a fraud who’s trying to split the vote and help re-elect Harry Reid.”

Gateway Pundit sums it up nicely:

“This fraud [Ashjian] sure seems to be helping out the Reid Campaign for some odd reason.

“Fake Nevada Tea Party candidate Scott Ashjian was sued by the Independent American Party in March. The suit challenged Ashjian’s membership in the Tea Party of Nevada. He was also charged with felony theft for passing a bad check in Las Vegas this spring.

“…This afternoon Ashjian lashed out at the “racist” Tea Party Express and the Republican Party saying he would not endorse Angle or Reid in the election.

“Unfortunately, this fake tea party candidate is trying to pull votes from Sharron Angle.

…How convenient for Harry Reid.”

Harry Reid: Of “Pets” and “Hottest Members”

leave a comment »

A special edition by Jarrod Agen, Communications Director, Sharron Angle campaign: 

Not a good start to the work week for the Senator Reid.  News broke yesterday that Harry is creating special earmarks for his high dollar donors.  As the LVRJ reports, thousands of dollars from the owner of Arcata Associates to Harry’s campaign resulted in Reid earmarking millions back to company.  

The most shocking part:  

“The most recent earmark came after the Army said it was no long seeking money for the defense project.”  (Las Vegas Review Journal, Steve Tetreault “Reid criticized for earmark for LV firm” 9/20/10) 

Back at home, on top of 14th straight month of record unemployment, news was equally bad for the housing market. 

“Home sales and median prices showed no signs of improvement in August, Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research reported Monday.  There were 401 new-home sales during the month, compared with 426 in the same month a year ago. Resale transactions fell to 3,313 from 3,833 a year ago.” (Las Vegas Review Journal, Hubble Smith “Housing market not showing signs of improving” 9/20/10) 

Surely, things would be better for Harry while he was hanging out on the Upper East Side of Manhattan yesterday.  Let’s take a look at how that went: 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had an unusual form of praise for New York’s junior senator, Kirsten  Gillibrand, this morning at the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse – referring to her as “the hottest member” as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources. 

The comment prompted Gillibrand to turn red, according to the sources, and created a bit of stir among the small crowd there. 

“It was pretty shocking when he said it,” said one source familiar with the remark and the reaction.  (Politico, Maggie Haberman “Reid calls Gillibrand the ‘hottest’ member at fundraiser” 9/20/10 ) 

Okay!  Well, I guess that didn’t go so well either.  But Senator Gillibrand, at least Harry didn’t call you his “pet”.

You might be a domestic enemy (of the United States) if…

leave a comment »

From The Washington Post:

“Sharron Angle is the national GOP’s candidate in what is arguably the most high-profile Senate race in the country. On the day she announced her candidacy in 2009, Angle clearly and unequivocally agreed with a conservative radio host who claimed that there are “domestic enemies” and homegrown enemies” within the Senate and the Congress.

She has now been given three chances to disavow this claim or to state clearly that she doesn’t agree with it. In all three cases, she’s refused.

Angle’s latest refusal came this morning, in response to aggressive questioning from ABC News’ Jonathan Karl:

ABC NEWS: Do we have enemies of the country inside the walls of Congress?

ANGLE: Certainly people who pass these kinds of policies — Obamacare, cap and trade, stimulus, bailout — they’re certainly not friends to the free market system.

ABC NEWS: So, what are they?

ANGLE: They’re not friends.”

Sharron Angle is right.  Let’s explore the idea that there might be “domestic enemies” within Congress.

You might be a domestic enemy if:

  • you declare “this war is lost” while American troops fighting that war are still in harm’s way
  • you vote to confirm Supreme Court Justices who do not believe the Constitution establishes the right to keep and bear arms
  • you promise transparency to the American people, then continue with as many back door deals as you like, on the largest legislation issues of our time
  • you craft and ram through Congress, through threats, blackmail, and bribery, a bill that requires, as a condition of citizenship, the purchase of health care insurance
  • you actually believe that race should dictate what party you belong to (e.g., “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage can be a Republican”)
  • your policies have resulted in the worst unemployment rate since the Great Depression, yet you continue down the same path
  • you ally yourself with a president who:

-believes the Constitution is a “flawed” document that “focuses on what government can’t do to you…”

-allows the prosecution our Navy Seals but lets the USS Cole and Lockerbie bombers go free, one to a hero’s welcome

-is uncomfortable with the word “victory” except in reference to his own campaign (Yes, you are correct, Sarah Palin! And he continues to prove it!)

-treats our enemies like friends and snubs (or worse) our allies (e.g., Poland, England, France, and most alarmingly, Israel – our most important and staunchest in the Middle East)

-brings up one of our own member states before the UN as an example of having committed “human rights violations”

-refuses to secure our borders

Gee whiz, I can’t imagine why Sharron Angle has suggested that there might be domestic enemies in Congress…

Who is Sharron Angle’s God?

leave a comment »

“How do you explain all this? You’re now a national story, are you kind of overwhelmed by it all?” asked Ralph Reed of The Christian Coalition.

“I believe that God has been in this from the beginning and because of that when He has a plan and a purpose for your life and you fit into that, what He calls you to He always equipped you for,” Sharron Angle replied.

Now her critics accuse her of claiming God told her to run for office, claiming God is on her side, etc. etc.

But the real question is not whether God told Sharron Angle to run, but Who is Sharron Angle’s God?

Is He:

-Harry Reid’s racist god, who despises those who speak with a negro dialect (whose scriptures state that god cursed evildoers with black skin) and Hispanics who are intelligent enough to think for themselves, and perhaps – gasp – not be Democrats?

-Obama’s god, who demands collective salvation, that for one to be saved, all must be saved (which leads to tyranny)?

-Jeremiah Wright’s racist god of black liberation theology, hatred of Israel, of god damn America, and chickens coming home to roost?

-the one who commands death to infidels and glorifies jihad in his holy book – the same one to whom his followers proposed building a Monument, celebrating jihad, at Ground Zero?

-Nancy’s Pelosi’s god, “the word”, the one you can fill in with whatever you want – who was the inspiration for a bill that promotes the slaughter of His most defenseless creatures?

Or, is He:

-the same God Sarah Palin reveres, who directs her steps, and whose church building those who hate her set ablaze?

-the same God one of our Founders spoke of in saying, “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants” (William Penn)?

Why is it acceptable for Obama, Reid, and Pelosi to speak of their god, unchallenged, but Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin’s God makes people hold their ears and scream?

The God you serve will determine for whom you will vote in November, people of Nevada and people of The United States of America.
