Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a "Birther," and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of "Birtherism." In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.
Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama's ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.
It is for that reason that we launched "The Vetting," an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)--not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.
It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below--one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.
It is evidence--not of the President's foreign origin, but that Barack Obama's public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.
Note from Rantburg management: we also are not Birthers. Unless and until convincing, verifiable, conclusive evidence is offered, we believe that Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.
We also believe that he's been a terrible president, and that that is sufficient justification to remove him this November.
Our editorial policy is unchanged: anything at all that supports the 'birther' nonsense will be removed immediately.
They key talking point here is: Fundamental dishonesty, and willingness to lie and use deciet about something as basic as where he was born. He claimed Kenya then, claims Hawaii now. One way or another he is lying about a fundamental part of who he is - and that uncovers even more about who he really is: a manipulative man who will do and say anything to get what he wants, be it money or power. Any Obama supporter MUST be confronted with this established fact: Obama lied about something as fundamental as his birth. Why do you trust him after seeing this, and his horrible performance in office?
Apparently one Daniel Salinas, Mayor-elect of a small New Mexico town has been arrested on charges of extortion and voter fraud in conjunction with his election to that office. What is interesting is that today's AP article appearing in Fox News and an earlier (april 9) AP article some 600 words long fail to note his political affiliation. It is hard to do a search for Democratic corruption when the only time a party is mentioned is when it is a Republican. That's precisely the idea...
In this case, its less party and a far more 'good old boy'-clan-blood thingy. It has the flavor and markings of the PRI tradition from across the border rather than something you'd link with an Illinois, New Jersey, or Massachusetts machine. Think Juarez with Spanglish.
Yeah, far less registrations of Bobby O'Neil, Jan Walkowski, and Jamal Sufi on the rolls. Seems the vast number of the names have a very distinct linguistic heritage. Not quite multicultural as you'd find much further north which usually includes some sort of dealing between 'interest groups' for their piece of the action. The competition for graft and looting resources is far less. Of course, being New Mexico there are less resources to pillage go around so they have a tendency to keep it in the 'family' and among friends of the 'family'. See patron-peon abstract at cite. For a lot in the local population, they're not interested in the ritual of democratic voting as much as affirmation of the existing social arrangement. It's all personal rather than something dealing with efficient and honest government.
I'm hoping the Pubs take off the gloves in the Presidential election. If Romney is unwilling, then I hope the PACS go after the first gay-lebian, black, Hispanic, Jewish, Muslim, Cherokee victims-everywhere President for all the $hit he has wrought upon us.
Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson (R) appears to be doing a bang up job since taking office and has eliminated some 30,000 deceased voters from Michigan's voter rolls.
An audit of voting records over the period from 2008 to 2011 showed that more than 1300 deceased voters had cast ballots over the audit period though an official quoted in the source article said "in every instance where it appears a deceased person or incarcerated person voted and local records were available, a clerical error was established as the reason for the situation." whatever that means.
In any case, it is good to see Michigan joining several other states in getting their voter rolls cleaned up in preparation for the 2012 vote. It promises to be a much cleaner election in many states this year.
Well, Cook County's in Illinois, so even for a dead voter, that's some trick!

I've received correspondence from Dems regarding issues I did not contact them about and just received a phone call soliciting Dem campaign donations--I took the opportunity to express how I really felt! ;D
The thing to be wary of is the "Secretary of State Project" that is designed to elect "progressives" into the office of Secretary of State in the various states of the union. In practically every case of which I am aware, the states where massive cleanup of voter rolls happens are states where a Republican Secretary of State has replaced a Democrat. The election of Al Frankin in Minnesota was an example of how much damage a partisan Secretary of State can do when it was shown that ballots cast by dead people were greater than the margin of victory yet the votes by the dead were allowed to stand.
Democrats appear to be using voter fraud as a fundamental election tactic and need to secure the office of "Secretary of State" in order to enable that strategy.
I will NEVER vote for a Democrat for office of Secretary of State.
I saw a vid clip of Obama on The View (can't stand the chattering magpies except for Elizabeth Hasselbeck). Barbara Walters asked if Obama was worried about winning or some such question as that. Obama flashed briefly what seemed like anger and said with too much certainty: "I am going to win." 20,000 voters here, 30,000, 10% there and you have large-scale voter fraud that might swing an election.
