Illinois anti voter fraud campaign, Tea Party, Republicans, Chalice

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984″

From Mother Jones October 18, 2010.

“The Tea Party Will Be Watching You”

“Republican groups and tea party activists unite to block Democrats…err, voter fraud, at the polls.”

“When the Illinois Republican Party launched its anti-voter-fraud crusade this year, party leaders knew who they could count on to whip up a fervor about rigged elections. Together with a conservative political action committee, the state GOP has teamed up with a infamous anti-Obama birther who’s helped to recruit tea party activists to oversee the vote as official poll workers and independent poll watchers—part of a campaign against election fraud (real or imagined) that’s being whipped up by Republican leaders and activists across the country.

Every election season, the right revives its battle against voter fraud, depicting it as a rampant threat to honest electoral outcomes. (See the previous assault on ACORN, the beleaguered community organizing oufit.) This year, the Republicans have a tea party army on hand to fight this supposed peril. And they’ve taken their campaign a step further. Political parties and outside groups typically dispatch independent poll watchers to keep tabs on any suspicious activity. However, recruiting activists to serve as election judges and poll workers—the people who actually administer the vote at polling stations and are responsible for ensuring that election laws are enforced—is not a routine practice. But that’s what’s happening this year in Illinois, Texas, and elsewhere, with the GOP looking to tea party and conservative grassroots activists to fill key slots.”

“In Minnesota, the North Star Tea Party Patriots have teamed up with two other conservative groups to spearhead a far-reaching anti-fraud operation to recruit and train spotters at the polls, offering $500 for tips leading to voter fraud convinctions. In Illinois, meanwhile, the state GOP has joined with a political action committee called Illinois Republican Renaissance to form an “election fraud prevention task force” that aims to turn right-wing grassroots activists into official election workers and privately paid watchdogs. “As you know, ballot integrity will be a key ingredient to our success, and we need your help,” GOP state chair Pat Brady says on the party’s website. This effort has placed Brady in league with one of the tea party movement’s more unusual characters. The project’s coordinator, Sharon Meroni, is an infamous anti-Obama birther who filed objections against 32 Illinois candidates for failing to provide adequate documentation of their citizenship.

Meroni, who blogs under the pseudonym “Chalice Jackson,” also helped launch a petition demanding Obama’s resignation for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” “Who truly would have believed…that there was ANY chance America could be in the hands of a usurper government?” she wrote in another court filing to contest Obama’s citizenship, which the McHenry County Grand Jury dismissed. Meroni is now helping to select the election judges—as official poll workers are called in Illinois—and poll watchers that the joint project will dispatch on Election Day. (Campaigns have jumped on board the Illinois Republican Party’s effort as well: In a secretly recorded private conference call, GOP Senate candidate Mark Kirk said he was pushing to deploy “lawyers and other people” to two predominantly black Chicago neighborhoods to oversee the voting process.)”

“Conservatives do point to a handful of isolated incidents to gin up fears about voting shenanigans. In Texas, an 81-year-old San Antonio woman has been charged with using her dead sister’s identity to vote in 2008. In the Houston area, a tea party-linked non-profit called True the Vote claims to have discovered “most likely tens of thousands, of incomplete, inaccurate, or false voter registration” in one of the city’s poorest black neighborhoods. (The progressive group facilitating the effort has acknowledged that a small number of the registrations were faulty.) In Missouri, a group of Somali immigrant voters was accused of receiving improper assistance during the primary election this year. But while election experts acknowledge that voter fraud certainly exists, some point out that only a tiny handful of fraud cases have ever been proven. And they say conservative activists risk suppressing or intimidating eligible voters by hyping the potential fraud.”

“But there are already warning signs that tea party-related anti-fraud efforts could slip into dirty tricks territory. In Wisconsin, the state Republican Party had been accused of plotting with local tea party groups to disenfranchise voters whose ballots were returned because of a wrong address—an illegal technique known as “vote-caging.” Given the polarized political climate, overzealous activists working the polls could end up overstepping the bounds, intentionally or not. Referring to the GOP and tea party efforts to recruit poll watchers and workers, Wendy Weiser of the Brennan Center for Justice says, “We haven’t sent this degree of heightened activity for years. It’s just a higher risk situation for voters.””

“We haven’t sent this degree of heightened activity for years. It’s just a higher risk situation for voters.”

Wendy Weiser, et al, allow me to jog your memory.

I will not waste time on the obvious Orwellian (and probably Alinsky) style comments in this article designed to divert attention away from the intent of poll watchers, to make them appear as having more sinister motives. I will respond to the following statement made about Chalice:

“The project’s coordinator, Sharon Meroni, is an infamous anti-Obama birther who filed objections against 32 Illinois candidates for failing to provide adequate documentation of their citizenship.”

I have known Chalice for several years, spoken to her on a number of occasions and been a guest on her radio show. She consistently comes across as a concerned American, who believes in the US Constitution and rule of law, like most of you. She deeply cares about this country and has fought bravely and persistently to save it. The far left continues to smear good people like Chalice and elevate and defend the likes of Obama, a usurper and Chicago Pay to Play corrution crony.

By the way, have you seen any Tea Party members carrying a night stick lately?

** Note update, correction from Chalice below **

Here is an update from Chalice regarding the Grand jury indictments and the recent trip made to Washington, DC:

“Patriot’s Heart Network releases the following:
 
Following Patriot’s Heart Network’s trip to Washington DC along with American Grand Jury representatives, Dr. Penny Kelso, Mack Ellis and Carl Swensson, Chalice reports the following:
 
Patriot’s Heart Network contacted Chief Magistrate Judge Royce Lamberth’s office this morning.  The following information was provided:

3)    Citizens can file petitions with the court once a number is provided.  Further information will be forthcoming.
4)    A Lawyer is needed who can instruct on the process of petition filing in the US District Court.
 
This is it, everyone…. THE GRAND JURY INDICTMENTS WILL BE HEARD!
 
Please support Patriot’s Heart Network and The American Grand Jury as we continue following up on the July 13 and 14 trip to Washington DC where the court was served.  Follow up posts can be seen at http://americangrandjury.org, http://riseupforamerica.com, http://patriotsheartnetwork.com and http://patriotsheartnetwork.net (news is posted on the .net site).
 
The American Grand Jury and Patriot’s Heart Network is returning to Washington DC on July 20, 21, and 22 and need your help and support.  As 5 teams, each consisting of  2 members, one a Grand Jury representative and one a Citizen Journalist from Patriot’s Heart Network, arrive in Washington on July 20th the next step in the process will follow.  These 5 teams will serve and record the service of the American Grand Jury presentments to every member of Congress. 
 
We need people on the ground before we go, while we are there and for follow up.  This is serious.  The time is NOW for this issue to be heard and seen.  Please help.  Contact Patriotsheartnetwork.net to find out how you can help.  Also look at instructions on the websites listed above.
 
Funds are urgently needed to finance the 10 individuals who will be in DC for those three days.  Please go to Patriot’s Heart Network to make a donation to the teams.  You will enjoy the fruit of your tithe as you watch the teams progress through the Congressional buildings!  Patriot’s Heart Network will stream the feeds to America!

** Update, correction from Chalice July 7, 2009 **

Mr. Wells.
Please correct 2 typos in the original article I sent to you in email yesterday!
A case number will be assigned to the American Grand Jury presentments served to the District Court on Monday July 13th, 2009. 
The date should read June 29th
 The American Grand Jury as we continue following up on the July 13 and 14 trip to Washington DC where the court was served. 
 Should read June 29-30th 2009
 Also, please offer your readers three links posted on Patriotsheartnetwork.net.  These links provide information about who Royce Lamberth is.  It is important to know who he is!  Are we excited?  Yep!  This is the court where  Statute 3501 has jurisdiction. What His Honor Lamberth does, is pure speculation.
Chief Magistrate Judge of the U.S. District Court, Royce Lamberth
Please read Chief Magistrate Royce Lamberth’s official bio HERE
Please Read about His Honor Royce Lamberth on Wiki HERE
Lamberth’s judicial honor is discussed HERE
Lastly, Patriot’s Heart Network and The American Grand Jury is returning to Washington DC on July 20th with 5 teams to serve every member of Congress.  Each team will consist of an American Grand Jury Rep and a Citizen Journalist from PHN recording the event. This will be broadcast over the Internet with Twitter teams  following us.  PHN and AGJ is seeking on the ground help from citizens calling their congressmen and women, alerting them their office will be served with the Grand Jury  Presentments, asking them to receive the documents, explaining what the Grand Jury is to the staffers and why the eligibility issue is key to our nation’s future!  It was our observation during the June 29-30th trip to DC, that most don’t have a clue about Citizen Grand Juries.  Patriot’s Heart Network is raising $10,000 to fund this trip.  American Grand Jury is not soliciting funds.  PHN is doing that on behalf of both, specifically for this trip.  For more information and latest updates please watch “You and Those Stars” with Stan Solomon and Chalice tonight 7-9pm EST.   
What is the goal of this trip?  The 1st amendment assures Citizens the right to redress.  These Grand Jury indictments have been made and it is time the elected representatives are alerted.  What steps will follow July 20-22, 2009, will be determined at that time.
Thank you, Mr. Wells, for providing this follow-up!
