2012 US Senate Election Results As They Come In

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/06

Welcome to Truth Before Dishonor’s version of live-blogging the US Senate election results. The current makeup of the US Senate is 47 Republicans, 51 Democrats, 1 Socialist (Bernie Sanders), 1 independent who caucuses with the Democrats. In case you haven’t noticed, it is my desire at Truth Before Dishonor to associate Democrats with the color of Liberalism and Socialism, and to return the Republicans to their color of blue. It wasn’t always the case that Republicans were red, as I explained in my article Obama Wins 2008, In All Likelihood Loses 2012. Who knows, maybe I can help set a trend in motion to reclaim the rightful colorings for their rightful owners.

As properly educated high school students of Government know, not all US Senators are up for election this year. Only roughly 1/3 of them are. And the US Senate (in combination with the US House of Representatives) is equivalent in importance as is the US Presidency, so saith the US Constitution. And, as the US Presidential election is absolutely critical this year, so too is the US Senate election.

Here is the list of states holding US Senate elections and the Real Clear Politics polling of likely outcomes (note Independents caucus with Democrats:

Vote Fraud Shenanigans Already?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/06

We’ve just begun the longest day of 2012, Election Day, and we’ve already been delivered the first signs of Democrat life: vote fraud allegations.

From Nevada, a Union knowingly registering illegals and then threatening them to force them to illegally vote.

ALIPAC, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, based in Raleigh, N.C., sent the Nevada secretary of state an email outlining its intention.

“We want to stop the felonious thefts of American elections,” says William Gheen, ALIPAC’s president.

Gheen points to a commentary published in Sunday’s Las Vegas Review Journal. In it, editorial writer Glenn Cook accuses the Culinary Union 226 of knowingly registering illegal immigrants and then pressured them to vote.

Cook quotes an unidentified illegal immigrant who is on the Clark County voter rolls. The person claims a union representative told them they were “in so much trouble” for refusing to vote.

From Oregon, apparently an election worker completed a few incomplete ballots, by helping those incomplete ballots vote Republican.

Fox 12 in Oregon reports that Deanna Swenson, who was working part-time in Clackamas County, allegedly voted for Republican candidates on two ballots where voters had left sections blank. County commissioners reportedly claimed they saw her fill in the blanks on Oct. 31.

Oregon is the only state in the nation that does its elections entirely by mail. No possibility for fraud there, right? In fact, that system is a fertile feeding ground for anyone wanting to commit mass vote fraud.

From Pennsylvania, Democrat election officials boot out Republican election officials in Democrat fraud and intimidation heavy Philadelphia. A judge orders the Republicans’ reinstatement.

A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.

One Republican official claimed that “just under 70″ Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, “was shoved out of the polling place.”

“For this many inspectors to be ejected from polling places is rare, even for Philadelphia,” the official told FoxNews.com

More Pennsylvania news that needs to be seen and actively corrected. From the Fox News.com front page (which is, obviously, constantly changing):

Public school indoctrination and vote law violation

Look at a major part of the reason public schools are failing. They’re too busy trying to indoctrinate your children into being mind-numbed radical Leftist automatons. But aside from that, it is illegal to promote a candidate or ballot measure within a specific distance of the polling place itself. And this mural pushing Obama is inside the polling place itself. Note the voting machine set up right beside the Obama face and quote. Update: A judge ordered the Election Law violating mural covered, and the Democrat election officials did a urine-poor job of it.

From Michigan, illegal electioneering, assault of a citizen, assault of a police officer.

REPORT: A woman in a Detroit polling location was aggressively campaigning for Obama. A female voter in line objected. The Obama supporter punched the woman in the face.

Police came to arrest her and she smacked the cop.

Developing…

From New York (via Nice Deb): A New York City poll worker tries to force a voter to fill in every blank on the ballot, straight-line Democrat all the way, and declares the ballot would be rejected if any of the lines were left blank. The Republican US Senate candidate strongly obects. Republican US Senate candidate Wendy Long’s letter:

“This morning when I went to vote, a poll worker who was at the scanner, studied my private ballot and proceeded to tell me that it was rejected because I did not ‘fill in every space.’ She then proceeded to indicate that I should mark the Democratic line all the way down.

The poll worker said, ‘you have to fill in all of THESE, all the way down,” indicating the whole line at the far left of the ballot, saying ‘you can’t leave any blank.'”

I said, “I’m sorry, but that just can’t be the case …. that would force me to vote for people I don’t want to vote for.” She insisted again, that every office had to be filled out or the ballot would be rejected. And I said again “I don’t want to vote for those people!”

I protested again and said that I wanted to feed my ballot into the scanner as I had filled it out. She eventually relented saying ‘well you can TRY it’ — meaning she would allow me to put it in the scanner.

It obviously worked.

I had just remarked to all the poll workers, before I filled in my ballot, that we were all very fortunate to have heat and water and electricity.

It is heartbreaking, especially in these trying times for New York City with thousands of voters displaced from their homes and their polling locations, that poll workers would behave in this way, and through intent or ignorance, work to distort the outcome of an election and violate an individual’s right to vote for whomever he or she chooses.

I urge all voters to know your rights when you vote.

You can ask for help in how to operate the scanner, but your ballot is private and cannot and should not be inspected.

You do not have to vote in every office, or fill in every oval. Vote only for the candidates whom YOU want to vote for.

Finally, question authority – poll workers are there to help you to vote, not to tell you how vote. If one crosses the line, contact the Attorney General’s Office or your local Board of Elections.”

In North Carolina, electioneering by a Democrat election official?

Sharpe said he watched as the worker showed the woman where the Obama button was – along with all the other Democrats on the ticket.

“She was pushing the buttons he told her to push,” Sharpe said. “This is pretty shady.”

When it was his turn to vote, the poll worker did the same thing, he said.

“I went up there to vote and he came over and set up the machine for me,” Sharpe said. “He said, ‘If you want to vote straight Democratic ticket mash this button.’”

In Virginia, vote fraud? Former National Republican Congressional Committee Digital Director tries to vote in person in Alexandria and is informed he’d already voted.

2012 Presidential Election Results As They Come In

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/06

UPDATE 10:18PM TEXAS TIME, FOX NEWS CALLS THE RACE FOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

FIRST PRESIDENT IN 96 YEARS TO WIN A SECOND TERM WHILE SHEDDING ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES

Welcome to Truth Before Dishonor’s version of live-blogging the 2012 Presidential election. As a reminder, here’s how the 2008 elections turned out (via US Election Atlas.org).

Note the Republican states are in blue and the Democrat states are in red. Republicans were not always red and Democrats were not always blue. It wasn’t until someone on MSNBC decided to employ some psychological propaganda that the colors were set in that way. As I noted in my Obama Wins 2008, In All Likelihood Loses 2012 article, it is my plan that Republicans and Democrats revert back to their appropriate colors.

This is set to be a long day of poll-watching from home. Stay tuned for the updates, and may Providence guide the election results.

UPDATE 8:00am Texas time: The longest day of 2012 has barely begun and we already have vote fraud allegations.

UPDATE 8:15am Texas time: It’s already old news, but the first official counts are in, with Barack Obama taking a commanding lead. Dixville Notch, NH and Hart’s Location, NH have opened and closed their precincts.

Pre-Election Inspiration And Reminder

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/11/06

As the polls have begun opening across this great land and our efforts to oust the anti-American, anti-Constitutional, anti-Christian Socialist tyrant see fruition (or not), I thought some inspirational music with a reminder should be in order.
