Highlights of Tuesday’s CCTPP Meeting

At the meeting held last Tuesday, November 25th, the discussion was lively concerning the options that had been identified by Carteret County staff to implement the recommendations of the Springsted Corporation in their Compensation Study (earlier post HERE.)  Most of the attendees felt that the cost of even the least costly option was still too high considering the state of the economy in general, and the dismal prospects for County revenues in particular.  Since no consensus emerged from the discussions, members were left to their own devices for making their views known to the Commissioners.

After the discussions had concluded, a digital projector was set up and the 45-minute “Rocky Mountain Heist” video (below) was shown.  The video is narrated by Michelle Malkin, who previously lived in California before moving with her husband and kids to Colorado several years ago.  The video highlights the process by which four super-wealthy Colorado Democrats were able, by the end of the 2012 election cycle, to elect a Democratic Governor and a Democratic legislature (yes, both houses) in a state that just a few years ago was firmly red.

For those who were unable to attend the meeting, here’s the video:

Can’t We PLEASE Put These Folks In Prison?

Most readers will be at least somewhat familiar with the efforts of North Carolina’s Jay DeLancy and his Voter Integrity Project, but do you know that James O’Keefe, the video prankster who makes a specialty of exposing the fraudulent practices of the liberals behind such organizations as ACORN, also has a focus on voter fraud?

Yep. And, standing on the shoulders of DeLancy’s VIP, his Project Veritas Action group just finished an expose on voter fraud in western North Carolina. The seven-minute video is below, and it’s a dilly.

The 4th Circuit Turns the NC Voter ID Law on its Head

UPDATE

As expected, SCOTUS over-ruled the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday (October 8th) and ordered that all provisions of the NC Voter ID Law would remain in effect for the November elections.  The unsigned ruling was based on a 7-2 vote, with Justices Ginsberg and Sotomayor dissenting.  The full story from WRAL is HERE.

ORIGINAL POST

According to an announcement by the NC Board Of Elections from earlier today:

The Fourth Circuit today reinstated same-day registration and out-of-precinct voting ahead of the General Election in November.  A divided panel ordered the lower court to enjoin enforcement of new election procedures that eliminated same-day registration and required that a voter cast her ballot in her properly assigned precinct.

NC Attorney General Roy Cooper is expected to appeal the decision to the US Supreme Court as soon as possible, probably this week, with the objective of getting SCOTUS to stay the 4th Circuit’s wacky decision.  There is good reason to believe that the Supreme Court would grant such a stay, and the details are HERE.

The 4th Circuit acted on a petition from multiple parties who oppose the NC Voter ID Law, lead by the NC League of Women Voters.

Jay DeLancy thinks the Georgia Peach has an ACORN core.

Earlier today, Courtney Coren of NewsMax posted an article about voter fraud in Georgia, and the article featured comments by Jay DeLancy of North Carolina’s Voter Integrity Project.

The suspect is a Democratic organization called “The New Georgia Project”, which is trying to reach a self-imposed goal of registering at least 100,000 new voters before the registration deadline for the November election.  According to DeLancy, a massive voter registration drive just before a major election was “standard ACORN protocol in the past”.

More from Jay DeLancy:

“Now ACORN, that criminal enterprise known as ACORN, no longer exists, but they just changed their name and moved on,” he explained.  “We smell ACORN down there.”

“What’s going on is they are registering a lot of people that are turning out to be fraudulent, so the secretary of state in Georgia is investigating this, and of course the usual suspects are calling it voter suppression, racism,” he said.

“But the bottom line is that they’re finding a whole lot of fictitious registrations already here as they move toward a goal of 100,000 registered voters in the last month before the voter roll is locked down,” he added.

Also according to DeLancy, the New Georgia Project is run by Georgia’s House Minority Leader, Representative Stacey Abrams, who is “closely associated” with Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn.

More Volunteers Needed for the Carteret County VIP Effort

As some readers know, after the appearance at a recent CCTPP meeting by Jan Delancy, Director of the North Carolina Voter Integrity Project, I volunteered to head up an effort to do a preliminary analysis aimed at determining whether there was a significant voter fraud problem in Carteret County.  The first, automated, cut of the analysis is now done, and I need more volunteers to help apply human intelligence in order to complete the next step.

If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering, send an e-mail to me at VMT@Salacia.com with the following information (“Me” is Verne Thompson, CCTPP Webmaster):

1]  Do you have a computer (desktop or laptop) that you can use for this effort?

2]  What is the computer’s Operating System (Windows-XP, Windows Vista, Windows-7, Windows-8)?  This is sometimes abbreviated to the term “OS Name”.

3]  Do you have an installed copy of Microsoft Excel?

4]  How much memory (RAM, or Random Access Memory) does your computer have?  This is also known by the term “Total Physical Memory”.

If you need help in answering questions #2 and #4, here is a convenient way to do so if you already have Microsoft Excel installed:

Begin by bringing up your Excel application.  Next, in the menu bar, click on “Help”.  Move down the selections shown in the drop-down box and click on “About Microsoft Office Excel”.  A dialogue box entitled “About Microsoft Excel” will come on-screen.  Then, in the lower right of the dialogue box, click the “System Info …” button, after which another dialogue box will appear, with “System Summary” as the default selection.

Within the “System Summary” panel, the information I will need is on your “OS Name” and “Total Physical Memory” lines.

NC-BOE Finds 35,000 Incidences of 2012 Double-Voting

Seems that Jay Delancy is definitely on to something.  Here is the complete text of Andrew Johnson’s article at the online National Review:

North Carolina’s Board of Elections found that tens of thousands of registered voters from the state have personal information matching that of registered voters in other states, and appear to have voted in states other than North Carolina in 2012.  In some cases, votes were cast under names of individuals who had passed away before Election Day.

The review searched databases in 27 other states and 101 million voter records for information such as matching names, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers.

The review found that 35,570 North Carolina voters from 2012 shared the same first names, last names, and dates of birth with individuals who voted in other states.  Another 765 Tar Heel State residents who voted in 2012 had the the same names, birthdays, and final four digits of a Social Security number as voters elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the election board’s executive director, Kim Westbrook, told lawmakers that 81 deceased North Carolinians apparently voted in 2012 as well.  While some appear to have submitted absentee ballots prior to their death, she said “there are between 40 and 50 who had died at a time that that’s not possible.”

Westbrook offered a series of proposals for the state to consider to better secure its voting practices and reduce fraud, including on-site digital face-recognition or electronic-signature technology.
