|WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)|
Superman's product of the century (so far):
In my last post, I asserted that somewhere just over 15% of the 'new' votes (let's call it ninety-something) that Gregoire received (of a total of 593) in the King County recount were the result of human intention - this based on statistical analysis of the data for the state as compared to King County.
There are some who suggest that I'm proposing a conspiracy theory.
As you have probably gleaned from previous postings, I do not believe in conspiracies when it comes to the liberal left - because they do what they do in the light of day.
So, how does this situation happen like what has happened in the recount in King County?
Because they are counting ballots like this:
- for Christine Gregoire.
According to the video titled: "Robert Mak reports on ballot enhancements" on this page, King5 asserts that this ballot was promoted to the Canvassing Board and awarded to Gregoire. Guess which party controls the Canvassing Board in King County?
Based on what can be seen in the video and in this snapshot, there appears to be a mark of some kind on the left edge of this ballot. From what can be seen on the video and this snapshot, there are no other marks anywhere else on this ballot - certainly not in any visible ovals.
This is the sort of mark that you might expect would be the result of someone taking a blank ballot and covertly marking it by carrying it by the edge of the ballot with a marking pen in the left carrying hand - just walking around with such an arrangement will mark the ballot in the way that we can see in this picture.
An appropriate response by the Canvassing Board would be to determine whether the mark appeared to be the same ink that is in the marking pens that all of the election workers are apparently using to 'enhance' ballots such as these - or if the ink matched other marking instruments in the counting area.
In any event, crediting this ballot to Gregoire, is an act of 'voting' on the part of the Canvassing Board, because, even by the rules posted on the ballot, whoever made that mark is not qualified to be a voter - it could be reasonably postulated that this was the doodling of a child or an incompetent person. According to law and decency, the members of the Canvassing Board cannot cast more than one vote - like the rest of us. Given this evidence, they have broken this trust - most likely repeatedly.
So, you wonder how ninety-something strange new votes (of the 593) attributed to Gregoire happened and thus demonstrably skewed the King County recount? This is but one example - and it happened in the light of day.
This is also why there should be no more counting.
If what happened with this ballot happened - anything can happen.

If that went for Gregoire, that's grounds for an accusation of voter fraud, pure and simple.
EMCEE: You got it. How can we get more attention on this?

This coming from a Democrat... That is obvious fraud! Just keep counting until she wins, right?
EMCEE: That's what's happening Christian. Real soon now, though, they'll say to stop counting because she'll be ahead.
