Obama’s Secret Plan to Steal the 2012 Election

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


If you really needed any more reasons to read WorldNet Daily on a regular basis, its latest issue of Whistleblower magazine might be it. The news site, which has cornered the market on right-wing political paranoia, has come out with a special issue of its print magazine focused on “Team Obama’s strategy for maintaining permanent power.” Among the many underhanded ways Obama intends to steal the election, according to WND, is passing secret legislation to impose universal voter registration, which would naturally result in the registration of some illegal immigrants who “would be afforded the opportunity to vote in multiple locations.”

Then there’s the union-backed scheme for immigration amnesty, plus the court challenges designed to let felons vote. As WND warns ominously, “polls show felons overwhelmingly prefer Democrats.” And it wouldn’t be a grand conspiracy without the involvement of financier George Soros, who is backing a group called the Secretary of State Project that is, according to WND, “gearing up to steal the 2012 election for Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation, from which posts they can help tilt the electoral playing field.”

As the magazine editor writes, all of this points to a nefarious plot by lefties to run the country by any means necessary.

“The people currently running the show in Washington,” said Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, “come from the radical leftist world of Saul Alinsky in which everything they do — no matter how unethical, corrupt and flat-out illegal — is morally justified if it advances their agenda. Winning votes and elections by any means possible is their stock in trade.”

 Really, you just couldn’t make this stuff up.

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
