Obama encourages illegal aliens to vote?

Not quite so fast. He did not understand the premise of the question, or he just was not listening. When Gina Rodriguez asked the question during the interview earlier this week, everyone freaked out about the answer. The video you’re seeing elsewhere cuts off a relevant comment by the president a few moments later in the interview.

But let’s be clear, the president is known for interviews with mixed messages like this.

Rodriguez asked, “Many of the millennials, dreamers, undocumented, ahh… citizens … and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live, will they come for my family, and deport us?”

The president answers, “Not true.” He goes on with platitudes about how important it is to vote and not be afraid. It’s important to note Rodriguez just smiled and did not correct or clarify her question. At 1:12 into this clip, the president noted he thought it was important for Latinos – who are citizens – to vote because others in the community may “not have a voice, who can’t legally vote.”

To me, it’s clear what Rodriguez was asking the president, and she let him keep speaking. At 1:09, Rodriguez even mentions “the entire community.” The president did not get it … or did he?

Follow up

Let’s see if the president actually makes the effort to come out and say if you are an illegal alien, non-resident or non-citizen, you can not vote. It is illegal to do so. He won’t.

Here is a proper edit of the clip. If you’d like to see the entire interview – I’m certain it was edited like any other interview – click here.

Gina Rodriguez thinks it’s fine for illegal aliens to vote?

Another follow up. Rodriguez is an actress born and raised in Chicago to parents from Puerto Rico. A question for Rodriguez … is she now suggesting it’s OK for undocumented workers (non-citizens) to vote? In her opinion, did Obama give that opinion the green light?

Rodriguez is claiming the question referred to illegal aliens who are afraid of the voting process. Supposedly they think if someone in their family who is a citizen votes, they are at more of a risk to be tracked down and deported. If that’s the case, it’s one of the worst interview questions I could ever imagine. It’s actually an absurd question if you think about it.

Then she follows up with the following.

So if I vote, will immigration know where I live, will they come for my family and deport us?

Again, absurd question. If you are a citizen and voting, how is Immigration going to come and deport you? You’re a citizen. 

Bad interview all-around, and just enough “mixed messaging” to let illegals know they can vote with no consequences while the president and Rodriguez can claim “we never said that.”

Words matter.

Touch screen “calibration error” gives GOP votes to Democrats in Illinois

I’m sorry, this crap just does not happen on its own. In Illinois, a Republican state representative candidate tried to vote for himself and other Republicans, only to notice – before he submitted the completed ballot – the votes were being cast for his opponent and other Democrats.

Showdown in Wisconsin. Dems already squealing UPDATE:Walker holding?

If you’re looking for live updates, you can find them over at Powerlineblog

It’s hard to overstate the importance of this recall. Actually the 3rd the Democrats have held since the 2010 election. Never mind we already have a process in place by which voters a can remove an elected official, which depending on the office it’s every two, four, or six years. The unions see their grasp on public funds slipping in all but the bluest of states(no worries Connecticut) and so the fight to get Walker, the Lt Gov found four State Senators.

The young President’s health care plan is so unpopular and economy so bad that were it possible, he would face a recall. But ours is not a parliamentary system, at least it’s not supposed to be.

But have no fear my little mobsters, even if Walker wins the Dems are already screaming foul, setting up a challenge.

With only about four hours into the Election Day voting, members of the Milwaukee Democratic Party claim that calls are going out to voters telling them if they’d signed the recall, they didn’t need to vote today.

Milwaukee County Dem Chair Sachin Chheda said that Walker supporters can’t get through the day without “cheating.”

“This latest lowlife sleaze comes on the heels of countless reports from around the state of various Republican dirty tricks on behalf of Walker,” Chheda said in a statement. “For instance, reports surfaced last weekend that Walker supporters are paying homeowners to post Walker signs on their lawns.”

A state GOP source dismissed the claims, saying it was expected from Dems who have made voter suppression claims part of their playbook.

Meanwhile our good friend John Hayward says there’s plenty of proof the other side is trying to fraud up.

Meanwhile, Fox News spotlights an eyewitness account of organized Democrat vote fraud, delivered on a radio talk show, in which a caller describes “Greyhound-size buses, filled to capacity” with Michigan Democrats, recruited from a labor union and shipped into Wisconsin to illegally vote against Walker. The caller infiltrated one of the buses, and called radio host Chris Plante sotto voce from the road. The spy claimed organizers handed out “a lot of freebies” and fed him lunch, although he didn’t say what he ate, or whether it was prepared by unionized food service technicians.

Make no mistake the public sector unions have a lot at stake here. This stance for fiscal responsibility in state government is spreading nationwide. Expect the public sector unions to keep up the fight

UPDATE:Drudge reporting exit polls show Walker holding seat. But no link yet?

UPDATE 2: Apparently TRS is reporting just no way to verify the call claiming Union cheating. TRS says better to dismiss it for now.

Looking for a beer … ID please. Want to vote, “oh, you don’t need ID”

It’s interesting that I wrote this morning about voter fraud and now I find this video posted this morning from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposing how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Vermont, and how hard it is to get served a beer.

Voter fraud is a huge issue if your vote has been invalidated

In 2007, The New York Times noted the five-year effort by the Bush administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation found little evidence of voter fraud. Even if it is rare, it is an egregious violation of the rights of individuals whose votes are invalidated by voter fraud.

Voter fraud in Florida – Non-citizens registered to vote … and voting

Voter fraud is voter fraud. I don’t care if the fraud is perpetuated by Democrats, Republicans or Martians. As far as I’m concerned, those who illegally vote in the United States invalidate the vote of a citizen. We need to tighten down the voter registration process, validate voter rolls and demand positive ID at polling places.

“Digital DNA” may soon be required to take SAT & ACT tests in New York

Right off the bat, I want to make a point this is not about taking hairs or cheek swabs for use in identifying students taking exams. But I find it interesting boards of education are looking at secure identification processes, when liberals freak if voters are required to show up and present a government issued ID.
