Friends…here we go again with this brouhaha! The enemy within of many venues are at it again when it comes to UN monitors at some of this nations polling places…this is completely outrageous! Do any of you recall the same thing happening during the last presidential election? There was a huge uproar about the UN having monitors inserted at some of our polling destinations back then too…and there is again today, as there should be!
I’ve had this report saved since last night to share with you when I had time to do so today…I’m going to post a shorter version of what’s going on regarding this issue on this blog post, you will need to click a link I’ll put here for the whole story for you to read as well…I highly recommend you do, there’s much more in there, including whose fighting back etc.
This is via FN:
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”

Now Dudes and Dudettes, here’s another report I read this morning regarding the UN as well. This is a different topic to a degree…still, it’s another reason to get rid of the UN once and for all! Plus, this report shines the light on what we know these so-called monitors really desire!
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”
The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.
Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights:
“The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad,” Emmerson said.
