Banana Republics around the world are being invited to send representatives to the US to monitor polling places on election day. Just think how much about voter fraud we can learn from them!
President Obama has invited the foreigners ostensibly to make sure that all the illegal aliens, non citizens, felons, and dead people who want to vote, will get to cast their ballot.
With the help of President Barack Obama, the Organization of American States (OAS) will send roughly 30 to 40 spectators to polling locations across the country for the first time ever, according to The Washington Post. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has been consigning a small contingent of bystanders to U.S. elections since 2002, but this time it plans to send extra reinforcements.
The OAS is an intercontinental association that includes nations and sovereign states from North, Central and South America. Like the OAS, the OSCE is an international bureaucracy, but with mainly European members, including Russia.
For the record, no nation tops Russia when it comes to voter fraud. And Vladimir Putin won’t allow foreign monitors to observe Russian elections – at least on the scale that President Obama is allowing.
“We are not policeman,” Audrey Glover, an ambassador from Britain who is heading the OSCE mission in America, told The Post. “We would not interfere. We would not intervene. We would observe, and record if we see anything untoward happening.”
This sort of international probing can be interpreted as a shot to American sovereignty, or at least a sign of distrust in the overarching democratic principles and practices the country cherishes and exercises.
Both member states and even Obama seem to want to reestablish confidence they feel may be diminished.
Before the elections in 2012, the state of Texas and Obama’s Department of State (DoS) got into a battle over the same issue. The United Nations-backed OSCE sent observers to monitor the elections in the state, and Victoria Nuland, a representative for DoS, said that these onlookers would be immune from state law, according to the Inquisitr.
The OSCE “is under the misimpression that the State Department can somehow help its representatives circumvent the Texas Election Code. Texas law prohibits unauthorized persons from entering a polling place — or loitering within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance — on Election Day. OSCE monitors are expected to follow that law like everyone else,” Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott warned then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.
Francisco Javier Guerrero, the OAS secretary for the strengthening of democracy told The Post that the latest invitation from the Obama administration is a sign that it is willing to be the inspected and not just the inspector.
“The United States has never done it before,” Guerrero said. “But of course, this is a unique election.”
The only thing “unique” about this election is that we have a president who believes the US is a banana republic and can’t be trusted to conduct a fair election.
Obama has convinced the rest of the world that voter ID laws are designed to limit the participation of minorities and other Democratic voters. I guess the Indiana state police who are investigating fraud by a liberal Democratic voter registration organization in 57 counties are just playing around.
This is a slap in the face to American sovereignty. But when you have a president who doesn’t think there is any such concept, it’s easy to embarrass the American people and allow foreigners to pass judgment on something that is none of their business.
