WorldNetDaily is today reporting how Jerome Corsi, author of “Obama Nation”, managed to escape from Kenya after being held by Kenyan immigration officials. The most potentially disturbing part of this story reads:
“Corsi was set to show Obama and Odinga have been in direct contact since the senator’s visit to Kenya in 2006. He was to claim Obama advised Odinga on campaign strategy. . . “
“Corsi was to report Odinga’s 2007 presidential campaign strategy called for . . . claiming victory and charging voter fraud even if the campaign knew the election had been legitimately lost. Odinga, Corsi said, also was willing to fan the flames of ethnic tribal tensions and use violence as a last resort by calling for mass action that led to the destruction of properties, injuries, loss of life and the displacement of over 500,000 Kenyans. The purpose was to compel the Electoral Commission of Kenya to declare him the winner or enable him to declare himself the winner by force.”
In the light of this new information by Corsi, let’s look at the polls as they stand today. The Real Clear Politics National Average shows Obama ahead by 5.6%, and in the key battleground states his largest lead is 4.8% in Virginia. Even if Obama’s lead in the polls were to expand to 7%, when both the potential margin of error and a potential Bradley/Wilder effect are factored into the numbers, it could still be essentially a tied contest on Election Day. We could be looking at another 2000 cliff-hanger, but. . .
• The Obama campaign claims victory after NBC declares him “the winner”
• ABC and Fox News are not declaring a winner, but are claiming that it appears John McCain is on the verge of winning enough states to claim victory. McCain neither claims victory nor concedes the election. He asks his supporters for patience and faith in the American system.
• With no clear winner, on Wednesday, November 5, massive protests break out in LA, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Miami and ten other large cities. Several of these grow violent.
• Obama calls for peace, and his protesters respond by conducting mass sit-ins across the nation. He demands that every vote be counted. Obama’s people are now referring to him as “Mr. President”. Keith Olbermann does the same in a CNBC interview.
• After two weeks of rising tension, the controversy centers on two states, Virginia and Ohio. In Norfolk, Virginia election officials are still trying to tabulate provisional and absentee ballots, many of which are the votes of deployed Navy and Marines. Their office is swamped by over 5000 protestors who break in and steal and destroy as many ballots as they can. The office is left in flames, with one election official killed and several others injured.
• Ohio declares McCain its winner. Virginia sends a case to its Supreme Court to determine how to resolve the Norfolk incident. The Virginia Supreme Court decides so that McCain wins Virginia. Riots break out in Richmond.
• The Democrats file suit before the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Virginia Supreme Court decision. At this point, the unofficial popular vote count is showing Obama ahead by 210,000 votes.
• In a purported effort to calm things down, “President Obama” gives a speech to a packed house at Soldier Field where he demands that he be recognized as the winner of the election. Claiming he is the choice of the majority, he calls on all of his supporters to meet in Washington D.C. “to bring the city to a standstill” until “the will of the people” is recognized.
What happens next? At some point in this chain of events, does John McCain, “for the good of the country”, concede the election?
Because of what we know about Barack Obama – connections to 60’s terrorist/radicals, advice purportedly given to use violence to secure an election, widespread reports of voter fraud – we need to consider any number of scenarios as we approach election day. We need to ask if our government as well as our party have a plan, particularly in light of the current economic environment and the hysteria that accompanies it, to ensure that the true constitutional choice of the people is inaugurated in January, 2009.
If no such plans exist, we may likely hear “Bubbas” across America yelling, “Get Ready to RUMBLE!!”
