Mississippi NAACP Leader Sent to Prison for 10 Counts of Voter Fraud...Today's Black KKK

Newswire - While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.

In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.

Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times, the only media outlet to cover the sentencing.

“This crime cuts against the fabric of our free society,” Judge Webster said.

Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.

In the trial, forensic scientist Bo Scales testified that Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes containing absentee ballots.

This wasn’t Sowers’s first run-in with the law. Sowers previously had her probation revoked for disturbing the peace at a junior high school library, the Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported in 1990. During a hearing at that time, Sowers played the race card. She claimed to be the victim of “an attempt by powerful whites to silence” her, the newspaper reported. It didn’t work. She was ordered back to prison to complete the remaining two years of a three-year sentence she received for check forgery.

The NAACP has had other problems with voter fraud. The NAACP National Voter Fund registered a dead man to vote in Lake County, Ohio, in 2004. That same year, out of 325 voter registration cards filed by the NAACP in Cleveland, 48 were flagged as fraudulent.

But the NAACP’s voter fraud record doesn’t approach that of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. At least 54 individuals employed by or associated with ACORN have been convicted of voter fraud.

Voter fraud, sometimes called electoral fraud, is a blanket term used by lawyers that encompasses a host of election-related improprieties including fraudulent voting, voter registration fraud, perjury, forgery, counterfeiting, impersonation, intimidation, and identity fraud.

And ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy last November, was itself convicted of voter fraud in Nevada in April. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 10 in Las Vegas. ACORN was also banished from Ohio in 2010 when it settled a state racketeering filed against it by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, a project of the Buckeye Institute. Under the settlement ACORN, which is now reorganizing its state chapters under different names, agreed never to return to the state.

Election experts say voter fraud is fairly common, but progressive activists typically insist that the crime is virtually nonexistent. Republicans, they say, routinely exaggerate claims of voter fraud in order to whip their political base into a frenzy and push for voter ID laws. Liberals say such laws are unfair, and claim that they discourage minorities and the poor from voting.

The NAACP’s Jealous said Monday at the group’s 102nd annual convention in Los Angeles that photo ID laws are part of an attempt to disenfranchise minorities through some “of the last existing legal pillars of Jim Crow.” Such laws stem from “the worst and most racist elements” in conservative Tea Party groups, he said.

Stephen Colbert, the liberal comedian who portrays an overbearing conservative Republican on his cable TV show “The Colbert Report,” broadcast a segment this week ridiculing Republicans for treating voter fraud as a serious problem.

Some Democrats, however, aren’t laughing. The office of District Attorney Brenda F. Mitchell, a registered Democrat who serves Mississippi’s 11th Circuit Court District, successfully prosecuted Sowers. Mitchell was appointed to the post by Republican Gov. Haley Barbour in January 2010 after the previous DA resigned. She’s now seeking the Democratic nomination for the office in a primary election scheduled for Aug. 2.

Mitchell doesn’t appear to be a conservative. She served as a legal consultant to the far-left, New York-based public interest law firm the Center for Constitutional Rights. That firm represented ACORN in an ultimately unsuccessful lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a federal law defunding the activist group. Mitchell didn’t return calls seeking comment for this article.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, is also no conservative. But she won a conviction against Joshua Reed for voter registration fraud in 2004 when she was the Hennepin County, Minn. Prosecutor.

“It was very important for the public integrity of our electoral system that somebody, if they do something like this, gets charged, gets convicted and gets consequences,” Klobuchar said at the time.

Democrats, including Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, Pittsburgh District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr., and Miami, Fla., State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, have all vigorously prosecuted voter fraud cases.

Obama Signs Defense Bill, Kiss your Habeus Corpus Goodbye

Washington, DC - President Barack Obama on Saturday reluctantly signed a defense authorization bill, saying he was concerned about some in Congress who want to restrict options used by counterterrorism officials.
"I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists," he said of the $662 billion legislation.

The White House had lifted a veto threat against the bill after legislators made changes in language involving detainees.

In particular, the legislators added language to make clear that nothing in the bill requiring military custody of al Qaeda suspects would interfere with the ability of civilian law enforcement to carry out terrorism investigations and interrogations in the United States.

The House approved the bill on December 14, and a 86-13 vote in the Senate the next day completed the necessary congressional action.

At issue was the president's authority in deciding whether people detained in terrorism investigations would be held in military or civilian custody.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the legislation includes a "national security waiver" that allows the president to transfer a suspect from military to civilian custody if he chooses.

"I want to clarify that my administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens," Obama said in a statement Saturday. "Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation."

Obama said a section of the bill provides the "executive branch" with broad authority on military custody for non-citizen detainees.

The legislators also agreed on tough sanctions language for the Iranian Central Bank, aimed at punishing Iran for its nuclear program.

The measure "will put real additional pressure on the Iranians so they are going to pay a bigger and bigger price, if they continue to move towards nuclear weapons," said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

In addition, legislators agreed to tough new restrictions on Pakistan to ensure that country is not participating in the manufacture and transport of improvised explosive devices, or IEDs -- the hidden bombs that have caused havoc for coalition forces in Afghanistan.

"Ultimately, I decided to sign this bill not only because of the critically important services it provides for our forces and their families and the national security programs it authorizes, but also because the Congress revised provisions that otherwise would have jeopardized the safety, security, and liberty of the American people," the president said Saturday.

Best Obama Billboards of 2011

Los Angeles, CA -  In a year that the criminal Zionist controlled White House, along with the entire Federal Government's participation, released yet another fraudulent and forged Obama birth certificate and then 4 days later stages the Osama Bin laden death hoax, we celebrate the best in Obama Billboards we have captured or come across during 2011.

As we continue to let 545 treasonous individuals allow the usurpation of the office of President of the United States in the form of Kenya Born, international criminal felon fraud, Barry Soetoro, I salute those you you know know, like I do that Barry Soetoro will be in a prison cell for life, if not executed for treason once the revolution takes place in America.

As we head into a 2012 election year that has the promise and glimpse of the reclamation of our liberties, while restoring the constitution through Republican candidate Ron Paul, we all know whose side you should be on, but how long until the fleabagging sheeple of the Obama Cult stop drinking the stupid-aid.

May the Revolution lead us not into temptation.

Ron Paul Supporters Growing By Leaps and Bounds

NEWTON, Iowa – It has been said Ron Paul supporters would walk through broken glass, barefoot to help the Texas congressman win Iowa and beyond but Jeremy Spice and Sarah Howe went a few steps further.

They got tattooed.

In huge letters across his left forearm reads "REVOLUTION," a logo often used by Paul's supporters ; Howe's smaller, matching tattoo is on the back of her neck.

The two had driven to Iowa from Fort Wayne, Ind., at the last minute to attend a rally for veterans Tuesday evening Paul was hosting.

"We both have this week off after Christmas — it was last minute but we were like, we're going to go," Spice said. "So we left yesterday around noon, got in last night around midnight."

Paul's growing popularity in Iowa is no surprise to those who love him best. In some cases, these supporters have spent years vocally supporting him through straw polls, social media and contributing to his massive money bombs that raise millions within hours.

His support reaches beyond the droves of college students who have come to Iowa to volunteer and who are the most closely associated with Paul's campaign.

Among the Paul fans gathered at a recent event at theIowa Speedway were a 28-year-old factory worker, a 60-year-old military veteran and a 48-year-old registered Democrat.

With a nose piercing, a Ron Paul stocking hat, a shirt declaring his support of Paul in the 2011 Ames Straw poll and a leather jacket with a "Led Zeppelin" patch on the sleeve, David Richardson, a 28-year-old factory worker from Newton, looked the part of a stereotypical Ron Paul supporter.

Like many Paul fans, the Texan's brand of constitutional conservatism first caught his interest. From then on, the more he read, the more he liked.

"His opposition to the Federal Reserve really caught my attention; it was something I hadn't thought a lot about before," Richardson said.

Deanna Seiler, a Democrat from Elberon, Iowa, said Paul's adherence to the powers outlined in the Constitution attracted her as well as his opposition to trying to turn backward foreign countries into modern societies, which Paul calls nation building.

"What is the purpose of us being everywhere and not here?" she said.

Bob Colby, a 22-year veteran of the military, was the first person to raise his hand following Paul's speech.

"I just have a comment," he said when called upon. "I'm retired military and of all the candidates that are running right now, you are the only one that I would trust to be my commander in chief."

Paul has called for troops to be withdrawn from Afghanistan as well as from other countries, such as Japan, where the United States still maintains military bases.

Not window shopping

Unlike Iowans who have visited rallies for other candidates and say they're still undecided, those who attend Paul events aren't window shopping. They come to see the man they're committed to support in the Jan. 3 caucuses.

"Our supporters have always been very loyal," Paul said. "My attitude to build momentum is to reach as many people as I can, and that means going to these meetings and rallies and the rallies are getting bigger and so I keep doing the same thing."

Paul supporters are not only vocal but are protective of the man they often refer to as "Dr. Paul." If they think a media organization has either ignored Paul, made a mistake about his record and smeared him, they bombard the offender with e-mails, phone calls and online comments.

In some cases, the slights only energize them, according to supporters who initially e-mailed USA TODAY to express their disapproval of a story about a series of newsletters Paul distributed that contained racist and anti-Semitic language.

"We as supporters get even more adamant in our support when the mainstream media marginalized and ignored Ron Paul," Paul Niehaus IV of St. Louis wrote in an e-mail. "That just fuels our intensity."

Paul supporters pride themselves on their research abilities and their comprehensive knowledge of Paul's policies. Instead of relying on websites or listservs, they scour the Web for stories about Paul and make their views about those reports known.

"The reason you hear so much more from Dr. Paul supporters should be clear - we actually have educated ourselves on all the candidates in the field," wrote Jeff Smith of Houston. "When we pick our guy then we feel strong convictions about it. So, if we see someone representing him in an unfair light then we call them out on it."

Such reactions from Paul supporters has made public figures think twice about criticizing him publicly, said Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., who has endorsed Paul.

"I would think they don't want to alienate his supporters or him," he said.

Straw polls

The intensity of Paul's backers is also apparent in their ability to mobilize to help Paul win several straw polls at various political events.

Their willingness to show up en masse to vote has irked some Republican and conservative activists, who have claimed Paul's people have hijacked the polls.

After Paul won the Values Voters Summit October straw poll, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins hinted that the ballot box may have been stuffed.

"There were 600 people, over 600, that registered today just for the day, there were a number of people that left after Ron Paul spoke," he told reporters after the event. "You do the math."

Paul has topped the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll for two years straight.

When the results of the 2011 straw poll was announced, David Keene, then-outgoing chairman of the American Conservative Union, downplayed the results.

"It is what it is. It's a straw poll," Keene said. The audience, filled with Paul supporters, booed.

In Iowa, Republicans have worried that a Paul victory on Tuesday could hurt the state's credibility.

Terry Branstad, Iowa's five-term Republican governor, went as far this month to say a Paul win should be ignored and that whoever finished second should be considered the winner.

That's a reflection of the commitment of Paul's supporters and the impact they can have in a caucus with a low voter turnout.

"Enthusiasm times organization equals turnout," said Drake University professor Dennis Goldford in a recent interview. "In a small pond, a modest-sized rock makes a big splash."

Criminal and Treasonous Virginia Attorney General Changes Law because GOP Puppets Candidates Cannot Follow Rules

Newswire - The treasonous Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is intervening in the Virginia presidential primary dispute and plans to file emergency legislation to address the inability of most Republican presidential candidates to get their name on the ballot, Fox News has learned. 

Only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul qualified for the Virginia primary, a contest with 49 delegates up for grabs. 

The failure of other candidates to qualify -- notably Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry -- led to complaints that the 10,000-signature requirement is too stringent. 

Cuccinelli, who is a Republican, shared the concerns.

"Recent events have underscored that our system is deficient," he said in a statement. "Virginia owes her citizens a better process. We can do it in time for the March primary if we resolve to do so quickly."

Cuccinelli's proposal is expected to state that if the Virginia Board of Elections certifies that a candidate is receiving federal matching funds, or has qualified to receive them, that candidate will upon request be automatically added to the ballot.

Two former Democratic attorneys general are also backing the move, along with a former Democratic state party chairman and a former Republican state party chairman.

Former state Attorney General Tony Troy called the Virginia process a "legal and constitutional embarrassment." Fellow former top Virginia prosecutor Steve Rosenthal said: "This is not a Democratic or Republican issue. If it takes emergency legislation, then we need to do it."

Sources told Fox News that Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is expected to support the emergency legislation as well.

Perry has meanwhile filed a lawsuit, while a local activist has filed another lawsuit on Gingrich's behalf -- though the individual is not with the campaign.

Perry's campaign applauded Cuccinelli in a statement Saturday afternoon, while continuing to urge other candidates to join its lawsuit.

"Virginia's onerous and restrictive ballot access rules do create serious constitutional problems and undermine the rights of citizens and candidates," the campaign said.

Because the Zionist puppets Gingrich and Perry are too stupid and too pathetic to gather enough signatures, the criminal and treasonous Virginia GOP officials are changing the laws to help these criminal felons CHEAT the election process. 

All of these criminals belong in orange jumpsuits.

Kelly Clarkson Sales Spike after Ron Paul Endorsement

New York - A word of advice to prospective American Idolcontestants: vote libertarian.

One day after she announced her support for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Twitter, sales of pop singer Kelly Clarkson's most recent album were surging Friday on
One day after she announced her support for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on Twitter, sales of pop singer Kelly Clarkson's most recent album were surging Friday on of Clarkson's album Stronger shot up 442% between Thursday and Friday afternoon on Amazon (AMZN, Fortune 500), moving the album from #38 to #7 on Amazon's sales list.

While there's no way to tell whether her support for Paul was the only reason for this jump, the endorsement clearly made a difference for some fans.

"I must admit I have not really followed you but your recent stance on Ron Paul made me check you out," one fan wrote Friday in a review of the album on Amazon. "If you are smart enough to support Ron Paul then you are probably talented too."

"JUST DISCOVERED YOU...BECAUSE OF RON PAUL!" another wrote. "The energy of these songs would be great as Ron Paul event background music."

On Thursday, Clarkson wrote on Twitter that if the libertarian candidate "wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote."

"I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance," she wrote in an extended tweet.

Although she identified herself as a Republican, the former American Idolchamp said she "voted Democrat last election." And this go-round, "Out of all of the Republican nominees, he's my favorite," she said.

The Paul campaign thanked Clarkson for her "kind words" in a tweet on Thursday.

News of Clarkson's Amazon sales was picked up Friday by the Hollywood Reporter. Her album sat at #39 on the Billboard album charts as of Friday afternoon, though it was up to #13 on Apple's iTunes charts.

K-Mart Layaway 'Angels' Phenom Spreading

San Mateo, CA - A 10-year-old boy walked into a Kmart store in San Mateo on Wednesday afternoon, placed $20 on the counter and said he wanted to pay down a stranger's layaway account.  

Sameera Chatfield, the supervisor who helped the young "layaway angel," an anonymous shopper who pays off layaways for strangers -- arecent trend occurring at Kmart stores nationwide-- said the boy walked in with his mom and specifically requested an account that included toys for boys.

"It was perfect," she said. "I wish he had stayed around for a few minutes, because the people whose account he paid for came in."

She said the family smiled when she told them that the "angel" who paid down their account was a 10-year-old boy.
The boy is one of several such do-gooders Chatfield has helped since Friday, when people started coming in and offering to pay down layaways.

"It has been absolutely fabulous," Chatfield said. "It makes me want to go out and do something for someone else."

The contagious good will, which has spread to Kmart stores around the country, appears to have its roots at a store in Michigan, where an anonymous woman reportedly paid about $500 toward the layaway accounts of strangers earlier this month.

The "angels" vary in age and ethnicity, but most request to remain anonymous and that their money go toward paying off accounts that include toys or children's clothes. On Friday morning, a man in his 30s walked into a Kmart in Hayward with $10,000 in cash.

"He came in and said, 'I heard what's going on in other states.' I'd like to do it," said John Pawlik, 52, a manager at the Hayward Kmart. He said the man paid $9,800 toward layaway accounts and donated the remaining $200 to the Salvation Army.

Pawlik said in another instance, a couple came in and said they wanted to pay off an account because they don't have children of their own.

"I think it's great," Pawlik said. "It puts your faith back in how you feel about people."

Michelle Caldwell, 30, said that in the 10 years she has worked at the Kmart in San Leandro, she has not seen anything like this. Since Sunday, Caldwell said she has helped about five people who offered to pay down layaways.

"It's just really touching," she said. "If I had the money, I would be doing it myself too."

John Garcia, a 44-year-old assistant manager at the Kmart in Redwood City, said that when sales associates inform the lucky customers that an anonymous person has paid down their accounts, most of the time their reaction is tearful.

"It's almost like they're in shock," he said. "Like they've won the lottery. And in those instances, they have."

Garcia said the trend is improving morale among sales associates and benefiting Bay Area families who are in need at this time of year.

"I've seen lots of demonstrations of goodwill towards people, but never one that gained such momentum," he said. "It's something that's very special that's happening."

Romney Son Jokes about Obama's Birth Certificate, More Zionist Propaganda

DES MOINES, Iowa - One of Mitt Romney's sons has an answer for those who say his father should release his tax returns. He jokes that President Barack Obama should go first and release his birth certificate and other records.

Matt Romney's wisecrack came before an audience in New Hampshire on Friday. In response on Twitter, the Obama campaign tweeted, in part, "Guess he doesn't have one of our mugs?"

The Obama campaign sells mugs with a picture of Obama's birth certificate.

Matt Romney was appearing with three of his brothers when he said in regard to the tax return question: "I heard that someone suggested that as soon as President Obama releases his grades, and birth certificate, and a sort of a long list of things, then maybe he will."

Brother Tagg Romney jumped in and said, "That was not my dad who said that."

Matt Romney later tweeted regret that he'd repeated what he called "a dumb joke."

Mitt Romney has refused to release his tax returns but says he'd reconsider if he were the GOP nominee for president. Obama released his tax returns during the 2008 Democratic primary and in each year of his presidency.

The Romney campaign took a different kind of swipe at Obama, calling via a new website for $18 donations as a response to Obama playing golf while on vacation in Hawaii — a dollar a hole.
