Allen West Concedes

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

After two weeks of battling against a machine stacked against him, Congressman Allen West(R-FL) conceded the race for District 18 in Florida on Tuesday. They had to find a way to get the count to within the 0.5% required by Florida statute to trigger an automatic full recount, and after analysis, they no longer believed that would be possible.  As West noted, there were substantial irregularities. There was a good deal of evidence that there were shenanigans with the vote itself, as well as with the count, but the early vote recount that completed Sunday morning, but was not uploaded to the state before the noon deadline would not have made enough of a difference to trigger the full recount.

You can read the statement of concession here.

He appeared briefly on Fox to share his decision, H/T BarracudaBrigade:

West fought a hard race, and the volunteers who worked tirelessly to see to it that there was a fair process in place should be lauded. The fact is that after the redistricting, it was going to be an uphill battle, and as many have noted, that really sewed the seeds of this defeat.  In the redistricting shuffle, Col. West drew the short straw.  That should be as disconcerting as anything about this race.

Vote Fraud Rampant in FL18 Contest – The State of the Union is Broken

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Robbed!

If one were to extrapolate the unbelievable fraud that pervades the election in Florida’s 18th District, contested by Allen West(R-FL) and Patrick Murphy(D-FL,) and superimpose that fraud across certain “battleground states,” one could rightly suspect that the election of 2012 was an act of thievery, and of treason of the highest order.  This election has been characterized by all sorts of odd statistics, but in FL18, there’s one that simply blows the mind: In Precinct 93, there are just seven registered voters, but that precinct reported 900 votes cast.  Would anybody from Florida’s Governor Scott to Attorney General Pam Bondi care to explain how this result is even possible?

The sole object of the Murphy campaign over the last several days has been to run out the clock, and at noon today in St. Lucie County, that’s precisely what happened.  In order to get a full recount of every ballot cast, the count needed to be within one-half of one percent(0.5%) and that count needed to be uploaded by noon, today.  There were malfunctions at the last minute with the memory cards from the tabulating machines, meaning the deadline elapsed without the recount of the St. Lucie County early votes being uploaded.  Murphy is claiming victory, having successfully run out the clock, but ladies and gentlemen, it’s no longer about Allen West: You are being screwed. This isn’t just about disguising the FL18 vote count for Congress. They’re also concealing the count there for President.

If this is how our elections now work, and this is the nature of the corruption, it is no wonder that Barack Obama can win re-election in the worst economy in my lifetime.  To say that there are plenty of dead-heads who would vote for Obama is nothing revolutionary, but it has caused me no shortage of consternation since election night that he could win by a slim margin in a nation so wracked by trouble.  It simply didn’t make sense to me the night of November 6th, and it still doesn’t make sense to me nearly two weeks later.  The irregularities in Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Virginia, and Pennsylvania have been troubling me because they were so overwhelmingly in favor of Obama that the counts in these states may have swung this entire election.

Considering what we’ve seen in Florida, with phantom voters, faulty memory cards, and what I believe was intentional sabotage by some election officials, I have begun to wonder how widespread this fraud really may have been.  Could this entire election have been stolen, with the results of FL18 serving as a microcosm of the nation at large? I submit that such a thing may indeed be the case, no matter how horrifying it seems, but if it is, it means our country is being stolen from us, one precinct at a time.

Thinking about what FL18’s Precinct 93 could mean when multiplied by the whole of the country, in all of these precincts where we witnessed turn-out greater than 100% of the registered electorate, what are we to conclude?  If it’s this bad in one little precinct in one Florida county, how bad might it be across the entire nation?  Ladies and gentlemen, this is your country, and it’s being stolen. The Union is broken.

 

 

Help Allen West – The Saboteurs Are At It Again

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

In St. Lucie County, Florida, the recount of ballots in Congressman West’s election race has been scheduled for 7am Sunday, precisely when the local Veterans’ Day Parade will be getting under way.  They need people to work observing the recount to prevent any ballot or count tampering.  You know the deal.  In a county that reportedly had 141% turn-out(!!!), it’s critical to be sure that LTC West gets a fair shake.  If you’re in the vicinity, and you want to help, the address is:

4132 Okeechobee Rd  Fort Pierce, Florida 34947

The full bulletin on Facebook in the Allen West Republic group reads as follows, posted by Tanya Grimsley:

YOUR HELP NEEDED URGENTLY!!! The St Lucie SOE has decided that an EARLIER vote recount would be best. She has decided that SUNDAY, VETERANS DAY while all the West constituents are a part of Veterans Day activities. 7:00am PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD WE NEED THE MASSES TO SHOW UP AND HELP!!!

You can read the information here as well: St. Lucie Issues Decision to Recount Votes Earlier

I would not be the least bit surprised that the time for the recount had been selected precisely because so many patriots in the vicinity would be expected to be participating in the parade.   That way, too few observers and bad things can happen. It’s time to put an end to the nonsense, so if you’re a patriotic American who wants to help, local to this recount, they are asking for your help.  Spread the word.  Thank you!
