Why the GOP won’t challenge vote fraud

vote fraudEditor’s Note: This is a reprint of an article from back in November that appeared on Fellowship of the Minds. My dear friend Dr. Eowyn has allowed me to share it with our readers. A lot of people are unaware of the nasty political reasons that our elected leaders sometimes fail to do their jobs and, since we have never covered this issue on The Clothesline, I wanted our readers to see this. Thanks Doc and God Bless You my friend! -Dean Garrison, Editor

Friends and Patriots,

It’s major duct tape time ’cause you’ll need it to keep your head from exploding.

Are you ready for this?

Here we go….

There is now compelling and undeniable evidence that MAJOR vote fraud had been perpetrated in the November 2012 Election. See FOTM’s posts chronicling the extensive pervasive fraud by going to our “2012 Election” page below our FOTM masthead, and click on those post links colored dark green.

But our screaming and hollering are to no avail. No one is listening to us. Not even the Republican Party.

Here’s why….

The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.

Yes. You read it correctly.

In fact, legally the GOP cannot ensure voting integrity, nor can it prevent vote fraud.

Here’s the astounding reason, which is kept from the American people.

PolitiJim writes for Gulag Bound, November 13, 2012, that during the weekly True the Vote webcast, Catherine Engelbrecht (see her photo below) related a meeting she had with Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), asking what the GOP would do about voter integrity.  The answer?

Nothing.  They aren’t legally able to.

True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht (read more about her, here)

This all goes back to a lawsuit 31 years ago, in 1981. The following is compiled from an account on The Judicial View, a legal website specializing in court decision research and alerts, and from “Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee,” Case No. 09-4615.

In 1981, during the gubernatorial election in New Jersey (NJ), a lawsuit was brought against the RNC, the NJ Republican State Committee (RSC), and three individuals (John A. Kelly, Ronald Kaufman, and Alex Hurtado), accusing them of violating the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA), 42 U.S.C. §§ 1971, 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.

The lawsuit was brought by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the NJ Democratic State Committee (DSC), and two individuals (Virginia L. Peggins and Lynette Monroe).

The lawsuit alleged that:

  • The RNC and RSC targeted minority voters in New Jersey in an effort to intimidate them.
  • The RNC created a voter challenge list by mailing sample ballots to individuals in precincts with a high percentage of racial or ethnic minority registered voters. Then the RNC put the names of individuals whose postcards were returned as undeliverable on a list of voters to challenge at the polls.
  • The RNC enlisted the help of off-duty sheriffs and police officers with “National Ballot Security Task Force” armbands, to intimidate voters by standing at polling places in minority precincts during voting. Some of the officers allegedly wore firearms in a visible manner.

To settle the lawsuit, in 1982 — while Ronald Reagan was President (1981-1989) — the RNC and RSC entered into an agreement or Consent Decree, which is national in scope, limiting the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance. The following is what the RNC and RSC, in the Consent Decree, agreed they would do:

[I]n the future, in all states and territories of the United States:

(a) comply with all applicable state and federal laws protecting the rights of duly qualified citizens to vote for the candidate(s) of their choice;

(b) in the event that they produce or place any signs which are part of ballot security activities, cause said signs to disclose that they are authorized or sponsored by the party committees and any other committees participating with the party committees;

(c) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their agents or employees to remove or deface any lawfully printed and placed campaign materials or signs;

(d) refrain from giving any directions to or permitting their employees to campaign within restricted polling areas or to interrogate prospective voters as to their qualifications to vote prior to their entry to a polling place;

(e) refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed towarddistricts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose;

(f) refrain from having private personnel deputized as law enforcement personnel in connection with ballot security activities.

The RNC also agreed that the RNC, its agents, servants, and employees would be bound by the Decree, “whether acting directly or indirectly through other party committees.”

As modified in 1987, the Consent Decree defined “ballot security activities”to mean “ballot integrity, ballot security or other efforts to prevent or remedy vote fraud.”

Since 1982, that Consent Decree has been renewed every year by the original judge, Carter appointee District Judge Dickinson R. Debevoise, now 88 years old. Long retired, Debevoise comes back yearly for the sole purpose of renewing his 1982 order for another year.

In 2010, the RNC unsuccessfully appealed “to vacate or modify” the Consent Decree in “Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee,” Case No. 09-4615 (C.A. 3, Mar. 8, 2012). (I paid The Judicial Review $10 for the PDF of Case No. 09-4615 and uploaded the 59-page document to FOTM’s media library. To read Case No. 09-4615, click here!)

This is a summary of the appeals judge’s ruling, filed on March 8, 2012:

In 1982, the Republican National Committee (“RNC”) and the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”) entered into a consent decree (the “Decree” or “Consent Decree”), which is national in scope, limiting the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance. The RNC appeals from a judgment of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey denying, in part, the RNC’s Motion to Vacate or Modify the Consent Decree. Although the District Court declined to vacate the Decree, it did make modifications to the Decree. The RNC argues that the District Court abused its discretion by modifying the Decree as it did and by declining to vacate the Decree. For the following reasons, we will affirm the District Court’s judgment.

Surprise! The judge who denied the RNC’s appeal to “vacate” the 1982 Consent Decree is an Obama appointee, Judge Joseph Greenaway, Jr., of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Judge Joseph Greenaway, Jr., U.S. Court of Appeals, 3rd Circuit

Guy Benson of Townhall.com points out that in last Tuesday’s election, Obama only won by 406,348 votes in 4 states:

  • Florida: 73,858
  • Ohio: 103,481
  • Virginia: 115,910
  • Colorado: 113,099

Those four states, with a collective margin of 406,348 votes for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275 electoral votes.

All four states showed Romney ahead in the days leading up to the election. But on November 6, Romney lost all four states by a substantial margin, all of which have precincts that inexplicably went 99% for Obama, had voter registrations that exceeded their population, and had experienced  problems with voting machines.

This election was stolen by the Democrats via vote fraud. Despite all the evidence of fraud, the Republican Party has been strangely silent about it.

Now you know why.

I’ll leave you with one last, even more disturbing thought:

The RNC and DNC made their Consent Decree 30 years ago, in 1982. The agreement in effect gives a carte blanche to the Democrat Party to commit vote fraud in every voting district across America that has, in the language of the Consent Decree, “a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations.” The term “substantial proportion” is not defined.

The Democrat Party knew this 30 years ago, more than enough time to put a plan in place to identify and groom their “perfect candidate” — in the words of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) in 2008, a “light-skinned” black Democrat who has “no Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one.”

  • Being a black Democrat, this perfect candidate would get the support of almost all black Americans (96% in 2008!) and other racial minorities (two-thirds of Hispanics in 2008).
  • Being a “light-skinned” black with “no Negro dialect”, this perfect candidate would get the support of white Americans perpetually guilt-ridden about America’s original sin of slavery.

It doesn’t matter if this “perfect candidate” has dubious Constitutional eligibility to be president. They would see to it that his original birth certificate (if there is one) would never see the light of day. The same with his other documents — his passports, school and college records, draft registration, and medical records (so we’ll never know why Obama has that very long scar running from one side of his head, over the crown, to the other side).

Now, we understand the significance of the account Tom Fife wrote during the 2008 presidential campaign. Fife, a U.S. government contractor, claims that in 1992 while he was visiting Moscow, a woman with undying allegiance to Soviet Communism (the Soviet Union had recently collapsed, on December 31, 1991) told him that a black man named Barack, born of a white American woman and an African male, was being groomed by communists to be, and would be elected, President of the United States.

Now, we finally understand the cryptic remark made in May 2010, by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan: “Obama was selected before he was elected.”

In 2008, this “perfect candidate” won the presidential election. And despite his many failures in his first term, he would be reelected in 2012 for a second term via massive vote fraud. But nothing would be done about the vote fraud, because of that Consent Decree signed by the RNC 30 years ago.

The Republican Party is dead — and with it, the U.S. two-party system as well — and the sooner we voters recognize that the better.

The question that remains is whether the American Republic is also dead.

UPDATE (NOV. 16, 2012):

Since I published this post yesterday, we’ve been asking each other: “What can I/we do about this?” Here are my suggestions:

1. If you are a registered Republican, QUIT! Switch your voter registration ID to non-partisan Independent.

2. Stop donating money, not even one penny, to the GOP. Tell them why.

3. Spread the word. Please send the URL of this post (http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/why-the-gop-will-not-do-anything-about-vote-fraud/) to:

  • EVERYONE on your email list.
  • Media people for whom you have email addresses.
  • Tea Party groups you know.
  • Post the link on your Facebook page.
  • Post the link as your comment on websites and blogs you visit.

4. Write your state’s attorney general and ask him/her to investigate vote fraud in your state. Click here!

UPDATE (Nov. 21, 2012):

5 days after I’d published this and 7 days after PolitiJim of GulagBound published his acount, someone in the conservative establishment media is writing about this — WND’s Bob Unruh. Click here for his article, “GOP Legally Barred From Fighting Vote Fraud”. But it’s still the sound of crickets from conservative talk radio, even though I’ve sent my post to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, and a reader had also sent it to Mark Levin.

Just so you know: It makes no monetary difference to us how many people read this post. Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) is an ad-free blog. We don’t make even a penny in revenue because we deliberately don’t have ads. In fact, I paid WordPress a $99 annual fee so WordPress can’t insert ads on FOTM either.

    Fraudulent article. Sorry guys.


    It’s a myth. Don’t even bother reading stuff from this website; the rest of the stories are all fake too:/

  4. JerryT203 says:

    Omg y’all are batshit crazy. Are you really still on about that racist birther bs??? What does the president have to do, fax a copy to every single one of you? Give me a break. This is about a bunch of paranoid lunatics whose only crutch in life is getting to hate on black people because they’re too few to fight back. Perfect scapegoat for a gang of white cowardly weaklings. The Republican party is destroying this nation; the sooner y’all get out the better. Then we can break up the Dems into a multiparty system and finally get a REAL socialist elected and maybe start catching up to the rest of the developed world in quality of life, education, decent medical care (until this year ours was the MOST EXPENSIVE and LEAST EFFECTIVE in the developed world, so go stuff your ACA paranoia up your bums) and humane treatment of the poor (Japan is the only developed country that spends LESS on welfare than us)! Ah yes. Y’all were idiot racists back in the 80s and now it’s coming back to bite you. Well kiss my ass y’all deserve it and I couldn’t be happier. This article is 99% paranoid lunacy but if it was true it would be truly great for America and her citizens. Happy Holidays;)

    • Marc says:

      Like Lou Dobbs asked, “I believe that the President was born in the U.S. and is a U.S. citizen. But if that is the case then why will he not release his birth certificate?” The President hired three law firms to keep his birth certificate sealed and waited three years to release it; why?

      I do not know if what was released was authentic or not, nor do I care. But what really matters if that all you have to offer is your phony “racist” argument, when the ONLY people who said they would NOT vote for the President because of his race were some elderly white southern…DEMOCRATS.

      But now the Democrats are very concerned that Sen. Ted Cruz, a Cuban American, may not be eligible to run for President because his American parents were living in Canada when he was born. I guess Democrats like you really do not like Cubans; their skin may be far too light colored for your taste.

      I met a Puerto Rican lady who fled Puerto Rico to live in Florida, in order to escape her abusive husband. She started a business there and was doing well. But then she had to move because she had a son who attend public school and many of the students did not like his light brown skin color. The school was majority African American and many of them do not like Puerto Ricans; too light skinned and they talk funny.

      There are plenty of examples of African American racism all over the U.S., directed against Latinos, Asians, Jews, Caucasians, and others. The last people to talk about racism in American today are African Americans, because they are the ones practicing the majority of it.

    • Luom Nguyen says:

      Who’s the one that is bat Chit crazy?You must be a liberal bc they don’t argue the points. You and them just demoralize and shout out your thoughts. You don’t know how to have a discussion but only shouting and name calling!! Instead of addressing the talking points you go on wild tangent rant and useless diatribe.

      • Kenneth Easterling says:

        Did you know that SNOPES consists of 2 guys answering whether things are true or false? What makes you think they aren’t libtards??

    • Ancoman says:

      You, sir are a moron and seem to be quite proud of it as pointed out in every syllable of your rant.

  5. Bill Dilworth says:

    The voter fraud is not up to rnc or dnc to police it’s up to law enforcement ! If voter fraud is evident it must be addressed by police and the courts ! Why wasn’t this done ?

  6. Take over the Republican party and rename it the “new Republican party”. Then we tell the dems and progressives to stuff their court order.

    Now anyone know how we can accomplish this before next November?

  7. Angie Ivey says:

    I have to say it’s been quite a while since I’ve seen such a “Victim” statement (we can’t do anything about it) and attitude from someone with so much supposed power. So, if they’re not willing to find a solution, they are part of the problem.

  8. Boagrius says:

    Last time I looked, the Tea Party had not made any deals with the Democommunists. Fuck you you filthy liberal traitors. We’re coming for you!

  9. Helen Pou Turner says:

    I wondered why there were not me suits filed over the blatant election fraud in the last elections. That was an unreasonable document signed by the 88 year old judge and should be made null and void unless it applies to ALL parties. Otherwse, why bother to vote? It is very disturbing.

  10. kevin Hagen says:

    Why is it, the genetic make up of all of the “WACKO” clan always flock together.

    • Marc says:

      If that is the best intellectual argument that you can make, then you should go back to school and learn to make rational, logical, and supported arguments for your positions.

  11. msbetz says:

    Neither the R or D will do anything about it because it’s a license to steal, and thats what they’re there for. $

  12. Best reason I’ve seen to leave the Republican party behind. they are not willing to fight for their people, so there not worth fighting for. Leave them with their worn out good ole boy politics as normal. Start a new party and start with voter fraud.

  13. Mary says:

    rebublics do not work!
    The founders said it themselves… “This Constitution can only work for a moral and religious people”
    As long as there are imoral and corrupt people a constitutional republic will always fail because it allows everyone a voice and a vote. That icludes the imoral, criminals and anyone who would rather sit on their ass and do drugs all day instead of work.
    as soon as we get this brainwashing out of heads about how great democracy is the better.
    People need to have a leader that 1st cannot be bought and second cannot be voted out buy whichever group tells the best lies and make the best phony promises through a media that has be bought by that same group. The leader should be able to focus soley on what is best for the country and that includes what is best for the (good) people not be worried that the criminals and the imoral people are going to not like him.
    If you study enough real history (NOT what you learn from text books and idiot professors that have been brainwashed) you will come to the same conclusion as I have. I won’t say it here because most people are still to brainwashed to even consider the fact that democratic republics don’t work. I wouldn’t want anyones head to explode :-)

    • Christine Zarek says:

      I totally agree. The only reason my head might explode is the frustration I feel that no one is doing anything. Well no one within the 2 parties. Their are several organizations that are starting to do great work. One is, I think it’s website is blackbox.org. The whole government needs a clean sweep, and start over

    • John says:

      As said previous, if you do not have a solution, then you are part of the problem. So since our nation is leading the world in freedom and development after a mere 237 years, perhaps you can suggest an alternative process that improves our freedom and success?
      We are all waiting…….

  14. Bryan says:

    Even if the RNC is prohibited from engaging in such activities, noone else is, and noone else needs to enter into a consent decree (what an idiotic thing to do).

    The Democrat Party is the party of voter fraud. We need to stop it if noone else will.

  16. Rick L. says:

    Obviously people just don’t get that voting is a joke and only puts a different face in office with pretty much the same agenda as the one he or she just replaced. We volunteered once as pole worker’s and I have to say with all honesty is was as organized as a dog fight. With all due respect, say we go ahead and vote and take in consideration the voter fraud and the attention of the ones counting the votes. And say we get the results on whatever source you can that next day. I’m taking a guess here but I’m gonna say the count is going to be about 75% accurate. We’re still going to get a Politician that is a Politician and he may or may not be the the one that actually got the most votes. It’s always more taxes, more wasteful spending, fraud, lies and better benefits for the Politicians. Maybe at one time to vote actually was real, but not any more.
    You can have all the Political Party’s you want but the rules have to change. First thing, There has to a be an independent oversite commitee run by the people for the people keeping tabs on the government. Second thing, Their time in office depends on their comitment to uphold the Constitution. Any wavering will be immediate dismissal of them. Third thing, they will get a base pay and will earn more depending on their productivity (this should deter rich people with big egos from applying). Fourth thing, his or her main objective is for the betterment of this country. Of course this day and age this kind of stuff only happens with your imagination and besides the entire Political system would have to be re-written. Lets face it man, money is the root of all Evil and it’s what drives this government and their helpers to be so dishonest. Does anyone know of an un-explored Continent anywhere? Cause that’s what we’re gonna need.

    • trish87109 says:

      You are guilty of using one of the most often used misquotes of the Bible. I Timothy 6:10 says, “For the LOVE of money is the root of all evil,…”. Money in and of itself is not the root of evil. It has no power on it’s own. It is what people do with money and to obtain money that is evil.

  17. Robert Jones says:

    Vote independent and tell the republicans to go to hell.

  18. The answer seems simple enough. Rename the party. The people are ready for a new party anyway. Combine the independent, Libertarian, constitutional parties into a new party. The tea party conservatives would support it. Conservative Republicans are free to join. If the RINOs are left behind, it is their choice. TAke the power away from them.
    Any lawyer worth his tarnished shingle would work around the consent decree. If not threaten the new party with loss of vote support and watch them scramble to clean up the vote counting process. No poll intimidation is needed or suggested.

    • I agree! The republican party has compromised so much they no longer exist. People are ready for a party that represents the conservative people. We are tired of a socialist-republican party!

  19. Rick L. says:

    No matter what, I’ve always thought voting is a joke. I mean just how many lies over the years can the people be so gullable to believe from each running official every election? Taxes continue go up , Schools never get any better, debt gets higher, wasteful spending gets worse, fraud still continues, the value of the dollar gets lower and this list goes on and on. And now we have the worst Administration ever because of it. Great civilizations only last about two hundred years and surprizingly we are just past that. So we might expect some changes real soon.

  20. Mac says:

    That 30 year old illegal decree from an activist judge is MEANINGLESS.

    There is no way that the obvious VOTER FRAUD perpetrated by the left can be protected by ANYTHING.

    We will see just how compromised our voting system has been overtaken by these Marxist thugs who will do ANYTHING to steal the election.

    The fate of our nation is now in the balance and I will never yield to tyranny.

    Obama – and that 88 yr. old faux-judge – can both go screw themselves.

    • JerryT203 says:

      Slow down crazy. Haven’t you ever heard of Snopes? There was no more fraud than any other election; the only thing fake around here is this article. Check it out:


      So you can calm down with the “off with their heads!” attitude. It’s the conservatives you should be pissed off at, who fabricate stories like this.

        You are a liar; even the Daily Kos acknowledges the existence of this consent decree.

        • Joe says:

          That Jerry guy is either a useful idiot, or he’s knowingly spreading disinformation. The Liberal Progressive movement is driven by dedicated Marxists who will lie about anyone or anything, and have murdered people they deemed a threat to their agenda. Do a search for “David Horowitz”. He’s got a lot of inside info.
