Since Donald Trump first mentioned the idea of a “rigged election,” President Barak Obama has not missed an opportunity to dismiss claims of voter fraud as laughable.
He has repeatedly referred to Trump’s claims as a “conspiracy theory” and the media are playing right along. While the media and establishment from both parties feign horror over Trump’s claims of voter fraud, Ohioans know it isn’t a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact.
The Project Veritas videos and investigations in Colorado and Indiana prove that voter fraud is happening as we speak. But those who think dead people voting and forged signatures are the only issue would be shocked to find out just how broad and how deep the fraud is.

I’ve been engaged in grass-roots campaigns, elections and activism for over 16 years. Seven of those years were on the ground in Ohio where I volunteered with several local and three presidential campaigns. I served as the operations manager for the John McCain/Sarah Palin Victory Center in Dayton.
Ohio is a huge target for voter fraud, but even Trump would be shocked to find out just how organized, deliberate and blatant it is.
My first experience was in the 2004 election in Trotwood, Ohio — a middle-class black community just north of Dayton. Our family was assigned to pass out voter guides at the polling station at Mount Olivet Church.
I noticed a woman in a bright yellow rain jacket right by the front door. The back of her jacket read “Voting Rights Team." She told me she was from Maryland and that she had come in on a bus with several other volunteers and staff to make sure African American voters knew how to mark their ballot to ensure their vote counted. On the other side of the doorway were three to five people waving Democrat slate cards and shouting, “Here’s your candidates” as voters walked in to vote.
Ohio state law forbids any kind of campaigning within 100 feet of the entrance to the polling station. They were right outside the door. They told me they were paid by the Democrat Party to be there.
Inside the church a crowd of voters filled the hallway: some checking in on the left and others voting on the right. Everyone was bumping into each other and talking back and forth asking who they were supposed to vote for. That’s when I noticed the a lady in a suit lean in pointing to one of the voter's ballots.
“Those are the ones you want,” she said. “The ones with the ‘D’ beside their name.”
Since then I have been flabbergasted at the absolute blatancy of the fraud.
Ohio's Golden week was also a real gem.
Pushed by the Democrats in 2005 Golden Week allowed individuals to register to vote and vote on the same day. Supporters claimed this law created an ideal opportunity for those who couldn’t afford to take time out of their work schedules. The Ohio legislature ended Golden Week in 2015 but the ACLU worked hard to try and oet it back.
This year Ohioans face a new fraud game.
Nursing homes and assisted living centers have been a target for voter fraud for years. Secretary of State Jon Husted, amidst mounting pressure by Democrats, sent an absentee ballot application to every registered voter in Ohio.
"It is easy for caretakers in nursing homes and assisted living facilities to ‘help’ our relatives to fill out the request form. Then when the absentee ballot application comes back, they ‘help’ these seniors fill out the ballot and mail in their vote - or perhaps even fill out the ballot without their knowledge. Unfortunately too many of these votes are based on the caretakers' political preferences and not the senior citizens,” said Tom Zawitowski, president of We the People Foundation in Ohio.
In spite of all of this and all the other voter fraud tactics used by Democrat operatives, it is still not enough to turn the election.
That is where the media come in. Propaganda and talking points from the Hillary Clinton campaign has been generously picked up and disseminated to the masses.
The powerful secret to destroying voter fraud—Don’t Stay Home!
In the 2012 election 2,353,957 registered voters in Ohio did not vote. Mitt Romney lost by 166,272 votes.
“A mere 7 percent increase in rural counties would amount to 195,980 votes and victory,” said Zawitowski.
Don’t fall prey to the media’s ultimate voter fraud. This election is NOT over. No matter how much voter fraud we face this election; we can win if we vote. The look on the faces of CNN anchors on November 9 will make it all worth it.
