Shakespeare, Warlocks and Barack Obama…(UPDATE 1X)

~~A Guest Post by American Lassie

Over the weekend in The Past Week roundup,  InsightAnalytical-GRL asked, “Who else out there is ready to find a hole to hide in?

IA, if you find an extra hole somewhere that I can crawl into I’m about ready for it.

The disgrace in Ohio (and other states) of ACORN getting by with their fraud is mind boggling.

Jennifer Brunner, Secretary of State of Ohio, is telling us that she doesn’t intend to obey an order of the court to verify these many registrations turned in by ACORN. And to make it worse, she is being upheld by the appeals court. In other words, she and many like her, are so determined to see the “one” installed that they will do anything they please to help it happen.*

And now we learn that Barky has already told ACORN that they will play a big part in his plans for America?

We are fast running out of time.

As for Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Jimmy Carter being the instigators of this financial mess we are in, how about:

Double, Double, toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble

Sound familiar? There are male witches (warlocks) as well as female. Although Shakespeare’s witches were female, we have a bunch of males that could fit that bill.

Just as these witches stirred the cauldron of ills to incite Macbeth, so perhaps these three warlocks stirred the pot to cause a calamity that would help Obama get elected. I do not feel that any of the blame for this is going to stick to Obama. Or to Frank or Dodd for that matter. McCain is taking the heat for it.

“Fair is foul and foul is fair
Hover through the fog and filthy air”

Back in 1742 Horace Walpole created a parody whereby three everyday working women manipulated political events in England. He paraphrased Shakespeare using the theme :

“Double, Double, toil and trouble
PARTIES BURN AND NONSENSE BUBBLE

I’d say it aptly applies to the present day situation.

Sorry I got carried away, by my mind is in turmoil these days.

THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

UPDATE

*The court decision referred to in the post has been overturned….see Court casts doubt on Ohio voter rolls

Late in the day – in a victory for Republicans – the full Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a decision made last week by three of its members. The result: Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner must create computer programs to cross check all new voter registrations so that county boards of elections can doublecheck new registrants.

The Secretary of State will now have to verify new registrations by comparing information on them with data from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or the Social Security Administration.

“As far as we can tell, the problem with the current system (of cross-checking) is not that it is insufficiently user-friendly, but that it is effectively useless,” wrote Judge Jeffrey Sutton, writing for the majority.

The court split 9-6 along mostly partisan lines. The only appeal would be to the U.S. Supreme Court, and it wasn’t clear Tuesday night if that would happen.

  1. Rather than finding a hole to hide in, may I suggest taking strong action? Pagan Power has an excellent article up about some people in Ohio who did just that:

  2. Hi everyone .. I am hearing that this has been reversed .. no link yet .. but have read it two places & both are waiting for the rulings so they can download to their sites ..

    6th Circuit reverses on TRO (devastation, humiliation for Jennifer Brunner)

    Jennifer Brunner will have to do her job.

    will try to get the link for you .

  3. UPDATE: In looking at the decision, it appears the full court voted 9-6 to hear the case en banc (which means all of them). I’d say the 9-6 vote is a good sign, but doesn’t necessarily mean the case will end that way. Tonight’s decision has been described as the opportunity to “live and fight another day.” But in the world of temporary restraining orders, if you have it, that’s all that matters for the time being. And the time being is what is crucial right now.

    Second point – the initial district court decision got some press because the judge found that Brunner was actually violating the law. That dialogue was snuffed out by the subsequent reversal. But now it’s back. When you run into Jennifer Brunner on the street, you can ask her why she’s violating federal election laws.

    go figure …

  4. Here is a link and the story of what was decided today.

  5. Excellent news…will update post…have been out ALL DAY!

    Thanks for the news…IA

  6. Jennifer Brunner has now appealed to the U.S.Supreme Court. Why is she so determined to see the fraudulant Acorn registrations stand? She should not only be booted out of her office, she should be arrested.

  7. UPDATE..the U.S. Supreme Court sides with Brunner!!
    A fiasco…

  8. lee M.

    Funny you should say that. When I heard what happened earlier today I told the co-worker that mentioned it that some smart Republican Prosecutor should go and arrest her for breaking Ohio law.

    I’d sell tickets to that!
