Nevada voter fraud, Voting machines suspect, Clark County, Harry Reid son Rory

From Gateway Pundit.

“The suspect voting machines in Clark County Nevada are serviced by the SEIU.

The SEIU is the same corrupt union that is behind thousands of bogus voter registrations across the nation. The group is spending millions this year to help democrats win back their majorities in Congress.
The Washington Examiner reported:

Clark County is where three quarters of Nevada’s residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son Rory is a county commissioner. Rory is also a Democratic candidate for governor.

Since early voting started, there have been credible reports that voting machines in Clark County, Nevada are automatically checking Harry Reid’s name on the ballot:

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

“Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.””

“UPDATE: Harry Reid is offering free food and gift cards to get people out to vote.”

Harry Reid buys votes with Medicare money, Reid bribed Nelson and Landrieu, Medicare dollars used for pay to play politics, Nebraska and Louisiana benefit

To all Americans.

Especially to all senior citizens, who survived the Great Depression and fought hard to save this country and keep it free.

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama are ramming an unwanted Health Care Bill down our throats, a bill that cuts billions from Medicare. To do this they have bought the votes of Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson with hundreds of billions of dollars that belong to Medicare and the American taxpayers.

That is about as low as it gets. But just when you think they cannot sink any lower.

From Right March.

Harry Reid has Scheduled the ObamaCare Vote for 1:00 AM MONDAY
Click Below to Tell the Senate to VOTE NO
https://secure.conservativedonations.com/rm_obamacare3/?a=3437

ALERT: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled the vote on the ObamaCare bill, the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” – at 1:00 AM MONDAY MORNING!.
You read that right: the liberal Democrats are preparing to sneak through their socialist health care bill… IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!
That means that TODAY, it’s up to YOU AND ME to STOP the government takeover of health care in America!
TELL THE SENATE TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE
BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”:
SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!
 
All week long, weve been leading the efforts of our members to contact every single Senator, to DEMAND that they reject Harry Reids socialistic ObamaCare bill — and as a result, over one hundred and fifty-eight THOUSAND faxes have FLOODED those Senate offices ALL WEEK LONG!
Weve been able to keep the pressure on both Democrats and Republicans, letting them know that WE ARE WATCHING THEM and that we DEMAND they put a STOP to this radical monstrosity of a bill. And the good news is… we ARE having an effect on them!
WE CAN STILL DEFEAT THIS BILL. The bill pushed by Obama, and passed by leftist Democrats in the House, is NOT getting the full support of every Democrat in the U.S. Senate; and without all 60 of those votes, they will NOT be able to pass the NEXT cloture vote coming up soon…
Which means that we can STILL defeat it there — IF we can overwhelm every Senator with our demands to STOP it!
Harry Reid has now introduced what is called his managers amendment — the secret deal that will serve as a substitute for the decoy that was the 2,074-page bill the Senate has been debating for the past three weeks. So is this bill any better?
NO IT STINKS:
The bill slashes hundreds of billions from Medicare to fund a new government program – cuts to hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices that care for our seniors cuts that a pair of Senate Democrats voted repeatedly to reject.
The bill includes massive tax increases on American families and businesses at a time of double digit unemployment.
The bill breaks the Presidents pledge that no American earning under $250,000 would see their taxes increase under this plan.a pledge that five Democrats voted to uphold just last Tuesday.
The bill allows for the funding of abortions, violating the longstanding policy of the Hyde amendment. The language is significantly weaker than Nelson-Stupak amendment which seven Senate Democrats and 64 House Democrats supported.
The bill includes a massive new entitlement -the CLASS Act – which the Democrat chairman of the Budget Committee described as a Ponzi scheme. A bipartisan majority (including 11 Democrats) voted to strike the CLASS Act — and they should withhold their support.
The bill will impose massive burdens to many states at a time when states are already struggling. At the same time, it gives special treatment to a select few states, so that taxpayers in Virginia, Arkansas, and Ohio, will pay higher taxes to subsidize the Medicaid programs of favored few (Nebraska Massachusetts, and Vermont).
We MUST NOT lose this fight. Harry Reid STILL does not have all 60 votes he needs to enact cloture and force a vote on his bill — but you can BET hes doing everything he can to GET those final one or two! If we can STOP him from getting them — that means THE BILL WOULD DIE!
We CAN still win, by keeping the Democrats from getting the 60 votes they need on the next cloture vote, scheduled for MONDAY MORNING AT 1:00 AM… but we can’t do it without YOUR help!
TELL THE SENATE TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE
BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”:
SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!
TAKE ACTION:Here is the Countdown To Americas Doom that we MUST STOP:

— MONDAY, DEC 21st — 1 am — Cloture vote on manager’s amendment (this is Reids secret deal that will serve as a substitute for the decoy that was the 2,074-page bill the Senate has been debating for the past three weeks)

–TUESDAY, DEC 22nd –7 am — Cloture vote on full substitute bill

–WEDNESDAY, DEC 23rd — 1 pm — Cloture vote on overall bill

–THURSDAY, CHRISTMAS EVE — 7 pm — Final passage vote on health care reform — THEY ONLY NEED 51 VOTES TO PASS IT THEN!

DONT GET DISCOURAGED — there are still at least four Democrats that we know of, who have NOT announced that they will vote for cloture. At the same time, there are a few liberal GOP RINOs who are dangerously close to voting Yes.

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE SENATORS NEED TO KEEP HEARING FROM US TO BE CONVINCED!

We CANNOT let the radical liberals in Congress — and the White House — force this plan for socialized health care on the American people! That’s why we’ve set up our website to enable you to send a strong message to every single member of the U.S. Senate, OPPOSING this outrageous plan.
For about what it would cost you in time and telephone charges, you can send Blast Faxes to Democrats, Republicans, Independents — EVERYONE in the U.S. Senate, DEMANDING that they REJECT this socialized health care plan NOW!
TELL THE SENATE TO REJECT SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE
BETTER KNOWN AS “OBAMACARE”:
SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!
This fight CAN BE WON! Please, take action right away to STOP this bill in the U.S. Senate!

Sincerely,

William Greene, President

Senator Ben Nelson bribed with taxpayer dollars, Nelson caves to Harry Reid bribes, Senate Health Care Bill, Taxes now insurance later, Democrat lies, Socialists, Harry Reid criminal act, Obama thugs threats

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the
Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Congressional oath of office

Ben Nelson, you and all of the Senators and representatives took this oath. It is a damn shame that many of you do not take this oath seriously.

This is not Health Care reform.

This is more government control, more taxes, a higher deficit, less jobs and most important, the ruination of our existing health care system.

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the socialist, communist, corrupt Obama Administration will stop at nothing to ram this highly unpopular, illegal, health care ruinous and country ruinous Health Care Bill down our throats.
Harry Reid just quoted a man who was not sure if he should pray to stay alive or to die. How does ruining existing health care, raising taxes, losing jobs, raising the deficit and deferring implementation of a new health care plan for 3 to 4 years help this man or anyone else?

What do we have in this Obscene Health Care Bill?

An unconstitutional Health Care Bill.

Crafted using unconstitutional techniques.

The American people are against it 2 to 1.

Taxpayer money is being used to bribe Senators such as  Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson.

Taxes will be increased immediately, at the worst possible time. The new plan will not be implemented for 3 to 4 years.

The federal government will have more control over our lives.

The new plan will raise the deficit.

The new plan will ruin our high quality health care system.

Here are some of the immediate reactions on this blog:

“Well, CWers, it’s becoming abundantly clear that incumbent politicians are more interested in taking bribes than keeping their jobs.

They think we’re bluffing. They’ll see we’re not come next November.

Time to take the trash out…”
SueK

“This email about Mary Landrieu was forwarded to me. I wonder how many pieces of Silver Ben Nelson got? Well at least we got to keep the military base.

Patriots:
At our Town Hall Event – the “Voice of the Citizens” – we promised Mary Landrieu’s District Coordinator that we were going to run a commercial comparing her to Judas for accepting Harry Reid’s 300 million dollar bribe.

We asked for donations that night and you guys chipped in $1025.00!!!!

Here is the commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2vwqymXEcU

It is also now on the Homepage of our website. http://teapartyoflouisiana.net/Home/tabid/38/Default.aspx

PLEASE, send it to EVERYONE you know and encourage them to donate. We want this commercial to be HUGE.

Ben Nelson and other senators and representatives who have been bribed, coerced or otherwise driven by party politics, you are in our sights. You will be removed from office.

Senate Health Care Bill, Cloture, Debate, Senate schedule, Senate proceedings, Harry Reed, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell

I was asked to post the following email.

 
“Healthcare Tea Party on the Las Vegas Strip today
 
SENATE VOTES TO BEGIN FORMAL DEBATE ON HEALTH CARE BILL
 
The Senate has voted to begin debate on the Senate healthcare bill, by a party line vote.

As we wrote earlier today, even though we have been considering every vote to be “first and goal” there are still a number of plays left in the game, and will need your efforts now more than ever to win it.
 
Here’s what Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell just said:
 
“This bill may have been drafted behind closed doors but now it’s the American people’s turn to have their voices heard. ..”
 
IN THIS ALERT:
1. Senate schedule
2. Senate proceedings
3. Democrats already panning their own bill
4. The “Big Picture” from here: “Forget the Trees, Look at the Forest” by Jane Orient, MD
5. What is Cloture?  from David Lowther, M.D.
 
 
 
Senate schedule & next steps
The Senate will begin formal debate on the healthcare bill after the Thanksgiving recess. At that time amendments may be introduced as well, which will likely number into the hundreds. Debate will probably take up to 3-4 weeks, so that brings us up to Christmas recess. Even if it passes the Senate then, it would have to be reconciled with the House bill, which is significantly different.
 
ACTION STEP:
Please circulate the “Healthcare Turkey” one-pager to family, friends and colleagues during the next 10 days while the Senate is in recess.
 
DOWNLOAD “HEALTHCARE TURKEY”
 
Senate proceedings
First, let’s be clear – the vote tonight was only to proceed with formal debate. The bill can be filibustered, and some have indicated that they will do so. That means that the Senate would again have to invoke cloture to end that debate. The votes required for that are 60.
Those votes would come before we even get to a final vote on the bill. So when you hear that the Senate voted to pass the health care bill – THAT IS NOT CORRECT!
 
Democrats already panning their own bill
 
SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-LA): “My Vote Today To Move Forward On This Important Debate Should In No Way Be Construed By The Supporters Of This Current Framework As An Indication Of How I Might Vote As This Debate Comes To An End.” (Sen. Landrieu, Floor Remarks, 11/21/09)
 
SEN. BLANCHE LINCOLN (D-AR): “I Am Opposed To A New Government-Administered Health Care Plan As A Part Of Comprehensive Health Insurance Reform, And I Will Not Vote In Favor Of The Proposal That Has Been Introduced By Leader Reid As It Is Written.” (Sen. Lincoln, Floor Remarks, 11/21/09)

SEN. EVAN BAYH (D-IN): “At The End Of The Process, I’ll Avoid The Washington Two-Step Of Voting To Go Forward But Then Voting Against The Final Bill … But This Is Just A Starting Point, So At This Point I Do Think There’s A Difference.” (“Bayh To Support First Procedural Vote On Healthcare,” The Hill, 11/18/09)
 
The Big Picture
 
Forget the Trees; Look at the Forest on Healthcare
By Jane Orient, M.D
AAPS Executive Director
 
Various groups, on both sides of the issues, are squabbling over details: abortion, a “public option,” treatment of illegal aliens, size of penalties, distribution of subsidies, calculation of doctors’ pay, etc. Items are moved in or out of the bill as needed to capture just the right number of votes with the least electoral damage. None of it really matters. The rules will be written later — after they “get it done” and “something” passes and the next election is over.

Americans need to take the view from 35,000 feet. That’s the view of the controllers, the global budgeters, and the folks who drop bombs without having to see the faces of the victims….

What is Cloture?
Dr. David Lowther of Atlanta sent us this great email and we thought we’d share it:
 
 What is cloture?  if you’re like me, you’re learning new things about government every day with this administration…
 
According to this Reference:
“By 1915 (under President Woodrow Wilson), the Senate had become a breeding ground for filibusters.  In the final weeks of the Congress that ended on March 4, one administration measure related to the war in Europe tied the Senate up for 33 days and blocked passage of 3 major appropriations bills.  Two years later, as pressure increased for American entry into that war, a 23-day, end-of-session filibuster against the president’s proposal to arm merchant ships also failed, taking with it much other essential legislation.  For the previous 40 years, efforts in the Senate to pass a debate-limiting rule had come to nothing.  Now, in the wartime crisis environment, President Wilson lost his patience.  Calling the situation unparalleled, he stormed that the “Senate of the United States is the only legislative body in the world which cannot act when its majority is ready for action.  A little group of willful men, representing no opinion but their own (that would be the minority), have rendered the great government of the United States helpless and contemptible.”  The Senate, he demanded, must adopt a cloture rule. 
On March 8, 1917, in a specially called session of the 65th Congress, the Senate agreed to a rule that essentially preserved its tradition of unlimited debate.  The rule required a 2/3rds majority to end debate and permitted each member to speak for an additional hour after that before voting on final passage.  Over the next 46 years, the Senate managed to invoke cloture on only 5 occasions.  In 1975*****, the Senate reduced the number of votes required for cloture from two-thirds (67) to three-fifths (60) of the current 100 senators.”
 
 
*****interesting little side notes i noted trolling the web:
 
#1: Guess how many Democratic Senators there were in 1975? 60 (the same number needed for cloture as mentioned above). 
 
#2: During the 35 years from 1945 through 1981, the Democrats were the majority in Senate save for 8 years (1st 2 years of Eisenhower’s first term and the 1st 6 years of Reagan).  During late Eisenhower years through JFK and LBJ, the Democratic Senate majority numbers were as follows: 65, 64, 66, 68, and 64 (ie – total dominance).  When Nixon was elected, their majority slipped to 57, 54, and 56.  Once Ford was in place, they regained numbers to 60.  So after ceding their 2/3rds control of the Senate during Nixon, they changed the rules while still in the majority and suddenly 60 was the magic number for cloture.
 
#3: From the moment Cloture was first instituted during Wilson until the Cloture rules were changed from 67 votes necessary to 60 (1975), Cloture was invoked only 21 times.  In 1975 alone, it was used 17 times by the Democrat-controlled Senate.
 
#4: During Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton and Bush II it was invoked an average of 12 times a session (6 times a year) and ranged from 3 (Carter) to 34 (Bush II).
 
#5: Since Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, it has been used 90 times.  90.
 
QUESTION:
So, how do you feel about Harry Reid using a rule that was originally designed as a means of funding WWI by expediting war appropriations bills NOW being used to force Universal Health Care upon the public?  Keep in mind the following:
 
1. Obama’s approval rating is only 47%, his lowest since taking office when he was at 65%.  While his approval rating has dropped 18%, his disapproval rating has climbed from 30% to 52% in only 10 months.
2. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s approval rating in her own state of California is only 34%.
3. Senator Harry Reid is behind in his re-election campaign in NV by 10% (“Sue Lowden beating Reid by 10%, 50% to 40%. Lowden is chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and the preferred candidate of the Republican party establishment.  GOP hopeful Danny Tarkanian beats Reid by seven points, 50% to 43%”).
4. In the race for California’s next governor in 2010, Republican Meg Whitman and Democrat Jerry Brown are tied at 41% each.
5. After Pelosi’s bill passed the House, the public was against the bill 54% v. 42%.  Even CA comes in at 51%, down 4% since last week.
 
To pull a cloture vote on one of the largest entitlement programs in US history, federalize 17% of the economy, and to do it on a Saturday, off the regular news cycle, is an atrocity.”
