At the final press conference of his presidency Wednesday, Barack Obama reminded Americans why we voted to end his policies. From conflating “who we are as a country” with his ideology, to using his morally challenged views to redefine what is “the right thing to do,” Obama displayed how out-of-touch he remains to this day.
Then, referring to voter ID requirements he said, “The reason we are the only country among advanced democracies that makes it harder to vote is that it traces directly back to Jim Crow and the legacy of slavery.”
As usual when Mr. Obama speaks, the exact opposite is true. The United States is actually one of the very few developed countries left in the world that does not require proof of identity to vote. Even Mexico requires voter ID. And requiring ID is not a barrier to voting- more minorities voted in the past two elections at districts requiring ID than did before ID rules were put in place.
Obama’s claim to the contrary is racist, as he implies minorities are incapable of securing government-issued ID, identification that is required to get a job, buy cigarrettes, cash a check, purchase alcohol, enter government buildings, board an airplane and apply for federal benefits. How dare Barack Obama imply that minorities are somehow inferior to everyone else in the country!
But the liar in chief wasn’t finished. “This whole notion of voting fraud—this is something that constantly has been disproved. This is fake news. The notion that there are a whole bunch of people out there who are going out there and not eligible to vote and want to vote. We have the opposite problem. We have a whole bunch of people who are eligible to vote who don’t vote. And so the idea we put in place the idea of a whole bunch of barriers to people voting doesn’t make sense.”
Remember Melowese Richardson, the “Obama Lady”? The veteran Cincinnati poll worker proudly boasted on national TV that she had “voted twice in last November’s (2012) presidential election. She was charged with repeatedly voting illegally over three elections using the names of others, including her sister who has been in a coma for a decade.”
She was found guilty of multiple counts of voter fraud and sentenced to 5 years, but thanks to the Obama system of Injustice, Ms Richardson was released after just one year, in time to be invited onstage for another Democrat fundraiser!
According to the Pew Charitable Trust, one in eight voting records in the country is inaccurate, due to bad information, addresses, etc. The 2012 study also found that nearly 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.
There are dead folks voting in multiple elections after their demise in Colorado, such as “Sara Sosa who died in 2009 (and) cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.”
Illegal aliens are registered to vote, an additional crime as they are not citizens. Kelly Riddell at the Washington Times reported this daunting finding:
A study by the watchdog Public Interest Legal Foundation found in just eight Virginia counties, 1,046 alien non-citizens successfully registered to vote. These aliens were only accidentally caught because when they renewed their driver’s license they self-reported, telling authorities they were a non-citizen. This study doesn’t even include the metropolises of Fairfax County and Arlington.
In Miami two women were arrested last year for election fraud, one of whom was opening mailed-in ballots and changing the votes, the other submitting fraudulent registrations.
In Virginia, “Harrisonburg officials and the FBI are investigating allegations of voter registration fraud after officials say almost 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people.”
Democrats were filmed coaching people how to disenfranchise citizens by casting fraudulent votes just a few months back. They even admitted on film to voter fraud going back fifty years.
While Barack Obama falsely claims ID laws are racist and have nothing to do with protecting the integrity of the vote, it is Obama who is being racist and voter fraud happens on a regular basis. Yet again, we have proved his words are lies.
