Allen West Update: Volunteers Needed to Combat Recount Fraud

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

After getting the canvassing board to vote to recount all the early ballots, St. Lucie County Florida’s Supervisor of Elections seems to be up to the same old tricks.  Another batch of ballots were “discovered,” and it’s anybody’s guess as to what they will record.  Patrick Murphy’s attorneys went to the District Court in an attempt to stop the recount, but their request for an injunction was denied.  The task of counting the ballots again began on Saturday morning. By late Saturday evening, the recounting was suspended until 8am on Sunday.  It was said that the process would be left on automatic.  This conflicts with the fact that they stayed until 2am on election night, and with recently discovered ballots(over 300,) it seems somebody is up to no good.

From my point of view, it seems clear that St. Lucie County’s SoE is trying to somehow game the system as she had all of the observers escorted out of the building as they close for the night.  One thing is certain, as volunteers begin to pull shifts to watch the building overnight, in order to videotape and record any ongoing fraud:  This race isn’t over, and while West isn’t conceding anything, it’s clear that the SoE in St. Lucie County seems determined to seal his defeat.

It shouldn’t be possible at this late date that an election can be stolen in such a manner, but the fact is that like in so many Democrat strongholds, or where Democrats simply run the local governments, it is not only possible but likely that they will do anything to win.  One possibility is that the recently-discovered ballots will turn out to provide the winning margin for Murphy, or perhaps they will be the difference that puts West over the top.  At this point, it’s difficult to understand why the State of Florida doesn’t get involved in guaranteeing a free and fair election and a proper recount of the votes.  The situation on the ground is still tense, and a bunch of Teamsters showed up on Saturday to provide a little intimidation on behalf of Murphy.  Wherever Democrats are permitted to count the votes, supervise polling places, or otherwise run the show, strangely, as if by overcoming seemingly impossible odds, these are the sorts of things that happen.  We’ve seen this before, with Al Franken in Minnesota, and we’ll see it here too, but you can help if you live nearby.

This update from Gary Galiano via Tanya Grimsley on the Allen West Republic Facebook group:

Just got off the phone with Gary – UPDATE ALLEN WEST – SOMETHING ODD AND FISHY PER GARY – they are shutting the mall down at 11 (an abandoned mall) for the alarm is set automatically at that time. They counted 37k votes in 12 hours but can’t count 304 votes in 2 hours. They kept yapping about the deadline and now this. SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN DENMARK FOLKS BE PREPARED. They want to come back at 8am and their deadline is tomorrow by NOON.

The oddities in this situation continue to multiply.

Ladies and gentlemen, I would ask that if you live in the vicinity, that you please check in with the folks at the above-linked Facebook group to see how you might assist.  The authorities in St. Lucie County are up to no good, and I fear they intend to make this stick no matter what the truth may have been. They are desperate to kick Allen West out of the House.   This sort of vote fraud and voter disenfranchisement ought to be stopped.

Shell-shocked: Allen West’s Seat Stolen

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

Can we afford to lose him?

I can’t even begin to characterize how thoroughly disgusting this fiasco has been.  Retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West lost his bid for re-election after what can only be termed an incompetent and dishonest count by officials of St. Lucie County.  They did not recount everything, but only three days of early voting.  Military ballots were never counted.  I want to say this one more time. According to sources on the ground, all of the military ballots languished in a warehouse, uncounted, and they never will be counted.  This is a shocking development, and West’s legal team is pressing their case, but at this point, he’s been screwed.  There were problems with bad memory in at least one voting machine, and any number of other clear irregularities.  The GOP establishment got their wish and rid themselves of Allen West.  To be honest, while I had been hopeful, I have been expecting this sort of result.  West tangled with the machine, and they redistricted his butt to the curb in answer.  The most dynamic, forthright, and clear-minded speaker for conservatism in the House of Representatives was sent home, not only to punish him, but I believe to dispirit and punish us.

Some will choose to focus on the irregularities, the vote fraud, and all of the things that have occurred in that district, and we should certainly fight against those transgressions, but ladies and gentlemen, that ought not to have been Allen West’s district at all.  The Florida legislature, particularly those in tight with the GOP establishment, redrew West’s district knowing he would face these issues with corrupt St. Lucie County.  They knew it.  That’s why they made this area part of his district.  It was sabotage, and after all we have been through together here on this blog, if you don’t recognize it, you’re wearing blinders.  In January, I brought readers this story.

Just minutes ago, directly from Facebook, in the Allen West Republic group, Gary Galiano, boots on the ground, had this to say:

“It’s all in the attorneys hands now I feel they have so much evidence to fight this it’s not even funny. It’s a sad day when you have to count on a memory card from Office Depot to determine the final results of an election.”

And then:

“I’m signing off now going home. Sorry I couldn’t give you all better news. Take care.”

And from Tanya Grimsley:

“UPDATE from Florida. This will effect all of you soon. The SOE, Supervisor of Elections, in Saint Lucie County just kicked out all onlookers and was escorted away by the St Lucie Sheriff’s deputies (not in handcuffs). The public by the Florida State Constitution has the right to be present at any voting recount. You will think I am crazy, until you open your eyes, this is the start of the Dictatorship will will live under. The “Republic” has fallen.”

Indeed. This entire process is despicable.  While the attorneys will continue to fight as they should, you and I must carry this fight in another direction.  You see, this ought never to have happened.  The GOP establishment wanted this outcome, and it was the result they wanted when they created this new district and told West he could run here, after breaking up his district. On this Veterans’ Day, when we ought to be honoring men like Allen West, and when we ought to be remembering all of those who gave the “last full measure of devotion,” we must instead mourn a defeat that ought never to have happened.  Instead, we must contemplate the meaning of losing a district in which the military ballots were never counted.  We must think about the fact that this is the system for which veterans have fought and died.  Did the honored dead and wounded fight to preserve this?  Is this what my own service had been aimed at defending?

I want to say this to my readers one more time:  There may have been rampant vote fraud that ensured this result, but the real theft of this election occurred during the redistricting.  Yes, you should be angry with the lying, cheating, thieving, and fraudulent Democrat machine, but you should be even more enraged with the same old GOP establishment that afforded the ‘rats this chance.  Allen West is now without a seat…just like the establishment wanted.

Now the question remains: What shall conservatives do about it?  The reason we admire Colonel West is that he has been willing to say the truth on issues that were of critical importance to this nation.  Will we speak the truth on his behalf?  I floated an idea on Saturday, and I’m still rolling it over in my head.  I’m not sure how to get it done.  I only know that the Speaker of the House of representatives is a role that does not require elected membership in the House.  A person is chosen for that job by the whole House.  Somebody must invariably place the names in nomination, and then they vote.  If the House of Representatives is truly the “Peoples’ House,” it seems to me it ought to be possible. I would love to see him taking the gavel from Boehner.  It would finally give John something worth crying about.

If that doesn’t work, I have a secondary solution.  I would be happy to have Colonel West move back to Texas, and contest the seat in my district, where John Carter is now the Representative.  Carter is getting on in years, and he follows along with the Boehner boys nearly every time.  I wouldn’t mind seeing him replaced.  He helped sell us down the river on the Debt Ceiling Debacle.  A good deal of what comes next will naturally be determined by Colonel West.  Most of all, we conservatives must continue to support him in his endeavors because he really does constitute a glimpse at the kind of leaders we will need if we are ever going to save or rebuild this republic.  I want to thank all of those who carried on this fight. It’s terrible to go into battle with one’s hands tied, knowing the deck is stacked against you.  On this Veterans’ Day, let us remember those who gave everything and recommit ourselves to retaking this country in their names.
