Obama’s Secret Plan to Steal the 2012 Election

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.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
