How is this possible? Progressives assure us that voter fraud is a myth. And yet…
James O’Keefe Strikes Again
Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”
James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship.

By sheer coincidence, this was published by The New York Post today…
850 voters in NYC are officially 164 years old
A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led Board of Elections officials to review their files — where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abe Lincoln was president.
The stunning discovery came after The Post reported last week that the birth date of Luz Pabellon, a spry 73-year-old who has been living and voting in The Bronx since the 1970s, was recorded as Jan. 1, 1850.
This week, a search of the records in all five boroughs found 849 more voters with the same wacky birth date.
Board officials chalked up the implausible age snafu to previous practices that allowed residents not to provide their exact birthdays when registering to vote.
Some of the new voters — mostly women — simply wrote that they were “21+” — above the legal voting age.
Too bad voter IDs are racist. Otherwise, our elections might retain some semblance of integrity.
These three movie trailers were shown on TV when I was a kid and scared the hell out of me.

Today’s terror attack in Canada has piqued my memory.
Remember back in 2009, when the Department of Homeland Security warned us that there was going to be a surge of homegrown terrorism by right wing extremists?
Federal agency warns of radicals on right
The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America’s first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
“It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.
Guess how many of those attacks have happened. None. Zero. Bupkis.
You see, that report wasn’t based on reality. It was based on the way progressives view the world and progressives don’t fear attacks from right wing extremists, they want attacks from so-called right wing extremists.
Unfortunately, reality has a will of its own and in reality, so far, all of the homegrown attacks have been carried out by Muslim extremists. That makes the left sad because Islam falls into the cherished category of diversity.
And now Canada has experienced an attack from a homegrown terrorist who recently converted to Islam…
Ottawa shooting: A day of chaos leaves soldier, gunman dead
Parliament Hill came under attack today after a man with a rifle shot and fatally wounded a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill’s Centre Block nearby.
The slain soldier is Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, a reservist from Hamilton.
Moments later, MPs and other witnesses reported 30 to 50 shots fired inside the main Parliament building.
It was confirmed later the gunman was shot dead inside the building, felled by the House of Commons sergeant-at-arms and RCMP, according to MPs’ accounts.
That 2009 warning from the DHS was insulting.
To our intelligence.
A Democratic Party flier circulating in the state of Georgia is stoking fear of racism and violence but that should come as no surprise. What else have Democrats got?
Note that this comes from the Georgia Democratic Party itself, not some no-name outside outfit that’s looking to boost its profile by tossing racial grenades.
One of the fun subplots of this campaign is watching Democrats, starting with The One himself, feign anger at Republicans for using fear to gain an advantage while they scaremonger in increasingly cartoonish ways themselves. Mark Udall went so nuts with his “Cory Gardner hates women” message in Colorado that the Denver Post finally threw up its hands in disgust and endorsed Gardner. Now, with two weeks to go and red-state Democrats desperate to survive, it’s kitchen-sink time.
What a hopeful, uplifting message. Here’s the flier…
It’s just another reason why Democrats deserve to lose this fall.
They don’t want to end racism. They’d never be in business without it.
This is currently the headline story at the Drudge Report and for good reason.
According to a new poll, Republicans now lead among women.
AP-GfK Poll: Most expect GOP victory in November
Women have moved in the GOP’s direction since September. In last month’s AP-GfK poll, 47 percent of female likely voters said they favored a Democratic-controlled Congress while 40 percent wanted the Republicans to capture control. In the new poll, the two parties are about even among women, 44 percent prefer the Republicans, 42 percent the Democrats.
In all, the poll finds that 55 percent of likely voters now expect Republicans to win control of the Senate, up from 47 percent last month. Democrats have grown slightly more pessimistic on this count since September, with 25 percent expecting the GOP to take control now compared with 18 percent earlier.
Election day can’t come soon enough.
Democrats deserve to lose and hopefully, they will.
“That’s not something that I would even consider doing.”
Yeah. We know that, Eric…
Back in August, Obama gave very specific instructions to Ebola.
Daniel Halper made a note of it on September 30th…
Obama, Two Weeks Ago: ‘Chances of an Ebola Outbreak Here … Extremely Low’
President Obama, addressing the ebola outbreak September 16, 2014 at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta:
First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States.
See? Obama said words about Ebola and that should have been the end of it but racist, obstructionist Ebola has an agenda of its own and just didn’t listen…
120 people now being monitored for Ebola in Texas
About 120 people are now being monitored for possible infection with Ebola because they may have had contact with one of the three people in Dallas who had the disease, Texas health officials said Monday.
Officials said 43 of 48 people on an original watch list have passed the 21-day maximum incubation period for the viral disease and are now in the clear.
But others who cared for a Liberian man who died Oct. 8 at a Dallas hospital remain at risk, along with two nurses he infected and their close contacts. That brings the total to 120 people now being monitored, with their wait period ending Nov. 7, said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. He said the number may fluctuate.
If only Ebola could be more moderate.
This would be the same Tina Brown who drove Newsweek Magazine into an early grave by publishing too many Obama worship pieces.
She’s singing a different tune about Obama now.
Does this make her a racist woman hater? I only ask because we all know that’s exactly what progressives would say if these words had been uttered by the likes of Sarah Palin or any other conservative woman.

Noah Rothman of Hot Air has some bad news for Democrats…
Among the findings in Politico’s latest poll of battleground voters which indicated that Republicans are set to have a good night on November 4 was the counterintuitive finding that the GOP is losing a number of key voting blocs; Republicans are behind with African-Americans, Hispanics, all voters under the 65 or older demo, and women. However, the GOP is only losing among battleground women by 5 points. Without a double-digit disadvantage among all women, and not merely the unmarried variety, Republican candidates will usually be competitive at the polls.
This poll confirmed what others have observed: Democratic-leaning women are simply not interested in voting this cycle.
We all knew Democrats would keep using the “war on women” until it didn’t work anymore.
It looks like that time has come.
