◼ Early voting is underway across Maryland, and issues with the voting machines are being reported from throughout the state. - Daily Caller
One voting official referred to the machines automatically switching votes as a “calibration issue.” Curiously, there hasn’t been a single report of votes being switched from Democrat to Republican in the heavily blue state, so “calibration issues” seem to only go in one direction.
◼ Expert Confirms Voting Machines in Illinois and Maryland Rigged for Democrats - TPNN
Just last week, TPNN reported that voting machines in historically politically corrupt Cook County, Illinois, were automatically switching votes cast for Republicans into votes for Democrat candidates.◼ Voter Posts Video Showing Machine Switching from GOP to Democrats, As Fraud Reports Mount Nationwide - Top Right News
Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told the Illinois Watchdog that, “It was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine.”
Now, Watchdog.org is reporting similar evidence of electronic voter fraud in the State of Maryland, where Diebold voting machines are switching Republican votes to Democrat vote...
Even though election officials in both highly Democrat Party controlled states have claimed the “calibration error” excuse, a software developer and expert on touch screens used by U.S. intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the explanation was bogus.
“It’s a software issue, and it’s incredibly suspicious that a bug like that could slip through accidentally. It defies belief,” said Tony Heller to Newsmax.
Last week GOP Illinois State Rep. Jim Moynihan said he tried to vote for himself and other Republicans and the electronic voting machine switched his votes to Democrats. Officials blamed a “very rare calibration error,” and some Democrats actually accused him or lying or exaggerating his claims.
With those doubts in mind, another voter in Moline, Illinois early-voted yesterday in the Moline Public Library, and remarkably found the same, “very rare” error when he too tried to vote for Republicans. But this time, he had his camera phone rolling, and sent us his video.
Also breaking today comes news of similar, oh-so-“rare” “errors” in machines in Maryland. By remarkable coincidence once again, this “error” once again seems to be only changing Republican votes to Democrats...
Reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s new book, “Stonewalled: My Fight For Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington,” goes into detail about the insertion of viral monitoring software into her computer. It’s a problem she has only spoken vaguely about in the past. It turns out more than just her computer was compromised, as described in a lengthy summary by Erik Wemple at the Washington Post:
“[B]y November 2012,” she writes, “there are so many disruptions on my home phone line, I often can’t use it. I call home from my mobile phone and it rings on my end, but not at the house.” More devices on the fritz at Attkisson Central: “My television is misbehaving. It spontaneously jitters, mutes, and freeze-frames,” she writes, noting that the computers, TVs and phone all use Verizon’s FiOS service. At one point, “Jeff” inspects the back of Attkisson’s house and finds a “stray cable” attached to her FiOS box. That cable, he explains, could be used to download data.Here’s a bombshell story in which a veteran reporter accuses the Administration of hacking her computers, destroying her data, and setting her up to take the fall for a crime if she got too far out of hand. Her story merits due diligence, of course, but she isn’t coming to the table without evidence. She also speaks of increasing hostility from her superiors at CBS as she dug deeper into stories damaging to the Administration, which is pretty much the template for the Heroic Crusading Reporter narrative journalists have embraced for generations. Shouldn’t this be a huge story – at least big enough to require the usual ritual excuse from Obama that he knew nothing about Sharyl Attkission’s travails until he read about them in the newspaper?
Next big moment: Attkisson gets her computer checked out by someone identified as “Number One,” who’s described as a “confidential source inside the government.” A climactic meeting takes place at a McDonald’s outlet at which Attkisson and “Number One” “look around” for possibly suspicious things. Finding nothing, they talk. “First just let me say again I’m shocked. Flabbergasted. All of us are. This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America.” That’s all coming from “Number One.”

◼ Stop panicking over ebola. Start panicking over Global Warming
- Daniel Greenfield/Front Page
...Instead of fighting Ebola, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were focusing on Global Warming with a “Climate-Ready-States” program. None of this insane gibberish about tropical cyclones and rising seas accompanied by a picture of lightning striking the ocean had anything to do with infectious diseases.
It was government mandated hysteria.
The National Institutes of Health was also neglecting Ebola while focusing on the health effects of Global Warming. Meanwhile an Ebola vaccine was sitting on the shelf because it wasn’t nearly as exciting as preparing for an imaginary apocalypse....
You can’t expect a leftist government run by former campaign staffers with the attention span of fruit flies to care about a problem that only appeared in a Dustin Hoffman movie in 1995 back when they were in diapers. Not when there are so many new imaginary problems to lose their minds over.
Ideologues make good screamers and bad leaders. The media-government complex is dominated by ideologues whose only skill is telling crazy lies to paper over the gap between reality and ideology.
Leftists have already chosen Global Warming as their crisis because it serves their larger agenda of controlling every aspect of human behavior. Aside from claiming that Ebola and Islamic terrorism are caused by the Global Warming Monster, they refuse to address them in any meaningful way.
Ebola and Islamic terrorism are isolationist crises that can be defended against by closing our borders. And that’s exactly what the left does not want. Their preferred crises are transnational crises that require Americans to accept some part in a global infrastructure for an unworkable holistic solution.... KEEP READING
◼ Obama White House bothered, bewildered and on the ropes - Wesley Pruden/Washington Times
The Republicans demonstrated remarkable discipline in this campaign, committing few mistakes and this time saying a minimum of silly and destructive things, standing aside while Barack Obama and his befuddled legion make their incompetence a centerpiece of the campaign. The Republicans have finally taken to heart the ancient wisdom that when your opponent is shooting himself, be kind, considerate and helpful. Stay out of his way.
◼ A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control. - Washington Examiner

In California, county health officials will have the ability to screen passengers arriving from Ebola-stricken regions in West Africa, or who have worked with infected patients, to determine if they’re at risk for the disease and if they should be quarantined for the virus' three-week incubation period.◼ OBAMA ON EBOLA FIGHT: USA CAN'T SEAL ITSELF OFF - AP

◼ Poll: 80 percent want Ebola quarantines - Washington Post
The poll, from CBS News, shows a whopping 80 percent of people want American citizens and legal residents returning from West Africa to be quarantined until it is determined that they are Ebola-free. Another 17 percent think they should be allowed to enter the country if they are symptom-free at the time.
The poll, notably, did not specify just how long such people would need to be quarantined -- about 21 days -- or where they would be quarantined.

In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic party. And vice versa.
Even today, after decades of feminism, most Americans agree that it is better for women (and for men) — and better for society — when women (and men) marry. Yet, when women marry, it is bad for the Democratic party; and when women do not marry, even after — or shall we say, especially after — having children, it is quite wonderful for the Democratic party.
Married women vote Republican. Unmarried women lopsidedly vote Democrat. KEEP READING

Below are the official CFRW Ballot Recommendations. Once again, it should be noted that our recommendations are just that- recommendations. It is the hope of the CFRW Voting Body that our Republican Women heed our recommendations but ultimately research these propositions on their own as well so that they can better educate other California voters. Every election is just as important as the last!

Two questions excerpted, from Roberta Rampton, who is with Reuters:
“Let’s take the case of the Pentagon. You talked about how the administration has been aware and has acted on an Ebola outbreak since March. And then shouldn’t these — shouldn’t a policy have been in place when you decided to send troops to West Africa? Shouldn’t — how you are going to treat those returning troops in a matter of a protocol then, rather than to what appears to be being made up on the fly?”… KEEP READING
This represents more mainstreaming of the idea that these guys just don’t have what it takes to actually respond to crises. Most of us have found that obvious for quite some time, but it’s important when the press corps and “Saturday Night Live” start talking about it, as SNL did this weekend with a pretty sweeping indictment of a string of Obama administration failures, which Jazz blogged but is worth a watch if you missed it.
