Stratfor Emails Show Democrats Stuffed Ballot Boxes in Ohio and Pennsylvania in 2008

According to stolen Stratfor emails published on Wikileaks, John McCain’s campaign in 2008 had evidence that the Obama Campaign was stuffing ballot boxes in Ohio and Pennsylvania and also had proof that the Obama team had “sleazy” Russian money in their cofffers.

Business Insider reported:

John McCain’s 2008 campaign staff allegedly had evidence that Democrats stuffed ballot boxes in Pennsylvania and Ohio on election night, but McCain chose not to pursue voter fraud, according to internal Stratfor emails published by WikiLeaks.

In an email sent on November 7, 2008, and titled ” Insight – The Dems & Dirty Tricks ** Internal Use Only – Pls Do Not Forward **,” Stratfor vice president of intelligence Fred Burton wrote:

1) The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio as reported the night of the election and Sen. McCain chose not to fight. The matter is not dead inside the party. It now becomes a matter of sequence now as to how and when to “out”.

In an email sent two days earlier and titled “Insight – McCain #5 ** internal use only – Pls do not forward **,” Burton wrote:

After discussions with his inner circle, which explains the delay in his speech, McCain decided not to pursue the voter fraud in PA and Ohio, despite his staff’s desire to make it an issue. He said no. Staff felt they could get a federal injunction to stop the process. McCain felt the crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.

    and that what, won’t happen again?? /s/


  • Liberls SUCK

    John McCain was such a poor choice for the GOP to run last term. My question is, WHY did McCain even bother running??? He didn’t seem excited or energized – even fat old Newt G. shows more energy than McCain did.

    It almost seems like he picked Sara Palin and then deflated his own presence in the 2008 campaign. AND, if he had information about ballot box cheating and dirty money – WHY DIDN’T HE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT??? Could it be that McCain was either paid off, or there is something really really dirty in his past that the Dems offered to expose on him???

  • Jack

    And that is why the republican party is referred to as the “Stupid Party”. You can be sure that had it been the other way around we would still be hearing about it and people would rightly be in jail.

    McCain is an enabler. It will definitely happen again.

    re: “McCain felt the crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.”

    I don’t doubt he said this, just like I don’t doubt that a long term politician hungers after power more than anything else – which means this is a totally bogus excuse.

  • GotFreedom

    Someone needs to go to jail for this–if you or I did anything like this (or anything similar to half the garbage politicos pull now adays) we’d be sitting in a cell!

    Recently here in OH–the ORP was overhauled with more conservative minded folks as well as a new ORP Chairman–keeping our fingers crossed that things will change soon and for the better.

    If you are in OH or PA; consider contacting your Sec. of State to express your concerns that this doesn’t happen this fall!

  • Annoyed In Illinois

    Fear of domestic violence, eh? When Odumbo gets his massive ears kicked in 6 months will certain pro-White, pro-conservative activities have to be cancelled for fear of Negroes rioting?

    Most White people have been backing away for 50 years. Someday we;’re going to run out of room, folks.

    Let the Africans riot. Let them discover how many White people are armed to the teeth. During the Negro riots that followed King’s death, my old neighborhood in Joliet, Illinois had house after house with good people sitting on the front porch late at night cradling handguns, shotguns and all sorts of sharp-bladed items. The blacks never attempted anything where we lived.

  • philipjames

    If Sarah Palin was in charge back then, Obama would have gone down because she would not have been a wuss like McCain…. she would have gone after Obama full bore and would have forced a lot of the Obama slime out into the open, even if the national media was not wanting to go anywhere near it.

    Similar thing happened in the mid 60s in Milwaulkee with the rioters. They got tired of burning down their own neighborhoods and attempted to expand into the majority white German neighborhoods. They were met with clubs and baseball bats and chased home dissappointed. This was before the mass media and social enginearring attempts at ‘white guilt’. A lot of people, not just whites, are tired of bending over backwards for these malcontents.

    The Russian money to pump up Comrade Barry Hussein’s resources is what scares me. Now with the open mic video of Hussein’s assurances to Medvedev of greater “flexibility” after the election (which he is certain to try to steal again), I have a sickening feeling that the traitorous Tyrant-‘n’-Thief might actually be working for the Russians.

    Note: Australian criminal, Julian Assange – he of WikiLeaks, which dumped thousands of US and allied secret documents, but never any Russian documents, now has a program on on RT (Russia Today).

    McCain was such a pussy in 2008.

  • tommy mc donnell

    this is another example of how much a RNC candidate wants to be president, think george bush the elder in 1992. in 2008 i always felt the biggest supporter obama had was john mc cain. obama had so many negatives:

    his communist affiilations, the ayers’s, wayne radtke, andy stern, alinsky, family members
    his racism rev wright and his church
    his lack of experience
    his lack of any significant achievements both in public and private life
    his lack of creating any significant legislation and his voting record or lack of

    but john mc cain would not allow any criticism of obama and his only statements about obama were positive. my feeling about mc cain’s strategy was if there is nothing to criticize about the guy then he’s the one i should be voting for.

  • Babsy

    But they HAVE to do it because of all the racist laws that demand one produce a photo ID to vote. Surely anyone can understand that….

    roll eyes……:-)

  • bigL

    I have been thinking that Mitt will choose M’cain as his running mate. He is a ‘conservative’ .He is from
    Arizona, he is a war hero, he has the experience of running for office. Mitt know he won’t really do anything. and finally M’Cain will really stick it to the Conservative bas. which is ALL IMPORTANT!
    Because god forbid that the USA should ever have another conservative President, a choice, a plan,
    to save the country from going into the Abyss

    Interesting. So the guy was willing to sacrifice the integrity of one of the country’s most important election processes because he was afraid of a mob?

    Another black mark on his increasingly pathetic record…

  • Lee

    John McCain was utterly worthless as a candidate, and is utterly worthless as a senator. I have come to suspect that he is steeped so heavily in white guilt that his backbone dissolved long ago. Or maybe the years of imprisonment in Viet Nam had some kind of psychologically damaging effect on him. Or both.

    He was destined to lose, and he made sure of it with his behavior. I don’t think he wanted to win. He just wanted to have the title “Presidential Candidate” in front of his name.

    I’m not even sure he likes America that much. Wasn’t he the one that told us we had nothing to fear from Obama? As far as I can tell, he still believes it.

  • CatoRenasci

    Democratic fraud is a tradition — and so is Republican refusal to make it an issue. Nixon in both Illinois and Texas in 1960, had Illinois switched, Nixon would have won instead of JFK.

    Voter fraud during all elections and Obama’s elected was riveted with Fraud. Once again one of the most blatant sites were the Black Panthers and Holder like it. Did nothing but worse of all names of dead people. This is America, I want justice and not the Holder kind.

    By not revealing the evidence McCain was concealing the evidence and was obstructing justice , he was an accessory to the crimes.

    And who are the ballot stuffers? Mostly black parasites, trying to insure their steady supply of handouts, quotas, set-asides and special exemptions.

    I wish someone could explain to me why white liberals feel the obligation to kiss black ass at every turn.

  • The Elector of Saxony

    “Most White people have been backing away for 50 years. Someday we;’re going to run out of room, folks.”

    We’re out of room. Section 8 has brought the ghetto to every neighborhood, is ruining every public school in the nation by a slow process of in-migration, and violence levels are rising to levels unheard of even ten years ago. My middle-class suburban neighborhood was a paradise when we moved in 10 years ago. Clean, quiet streets inhabited by white and grey collar types. Middle of the pack. Cop and a nurse raising an only child. Restaurant manager and an IT guy. People who went to work every morning and kept the lawn nice. We were involved, civic minded, and our schools were orderly and actually educated our kids. There was almost no crime, even though we are one of the largest suburbs in America. Today, a fast-rising influx of section 8 residents has turned gold into garbage yet again. Demographics is destiny.

    In my neighborhood, there are lots of very nice European cars and Chryslers with 22 inch wheels that never leave to go to work. The hip hop music runs all day and all night cuz everyone has the right to get they crunk on. Violent thugs kick in doors and rape, beat, and rob anyone they can find. We didn’t even have to lock our doors when we moved here. Now, our teachers have to spend hours each day disciplining the black “students” instead of teaching our kids. Oh well, there go 100s of millions in tax dollars paid by Whites to build schools that blacks will now destroy. Just like everywhere else.

    Soon, everyone who isn’t willfully blind will realize that almost all the problems of America aren’t political, they aren’t social, they are racial. All I had to do was open my eyes and look around. Detroit isn’t broken and crumbling because of Democrat policies. It’s returning to a state of nature and decaying because of a black population and IQ differential. Up next? Your neighborhood.

  • Patty

    Who is watching the ballots boxes. I see older people and those who just want to sit and chat with other cohorts. Seriously, who is really minding the polls.

    This is American and we can’t even do this right. Going on now for years. Do you think for one moment we will get a real shake and can trust this administration and the limbs of this government to get it right? NO

  • McCain always wanted to be known as a “good” loser rather than a winner.

    That’s why he held to his committment for the restrictions of public fianancing when Obama went back on his promise and opted out. That’s why he muzzled Sarah Palin who was drawing larger crowds than he was. That’s why he rarely responded to the vicious attacks from the biased media.

    I also heard that in IND, obama didn’t even make the primary, because his petition was filled with fake names. So if you take away IND, OHIO and PENN, did he really win? In MINN, Al Franken won by cheating, so it is safe to assume that the same went on for obama. I believe that in any close election, there is a lot of cheating going on. We heard that the Democrats were loading vans with homeless and driving them around to each voting place.

    You can’t have voter ID, but today I took some aluminum cans to the county recycler and had to show photo ID to prove residence in the county.

  • Bitter Clinger

    I was personally contacted by the Obama campaign on the Sunday prior to early voting in OH. They told me that I was needed to “help with the vote” in OH. A bus would be leaving the St Louis area and taking Obama supporters to OH. They told me I should be prepared to be gone for two nights. I explained that I was a registered republican and asked how they got my name. Answer: You’re on a list that I have and was told to contact everyone on it. we need you to help with the vote in OH. Question: Where did you get the list? Answer: ACORN. But, that’s illegal, I said! She laughed at me. I contacted the McCain campaign, the RNC, the local print, radio and TV media. No one would return my calls or respond to my concern. In early 2011, after the new Sec of State was in office in OH, I contacted that office and made him aware that bus loads of Obama supporters may be flooding the state again in 2012 based on my personal experience. They have been warned. I hope they are paying attention.

  • Well…the problem with career politicians to oh so evident in the very first paragraph of this email. There is no inkling of understanding that the victim of this vote fraud is the individual voter in those states (NOT THE POLITICIAN RUNNING IN THE ELECTION).

    We hear all this rhetoric about disenfranchising voters. And, yet, when it is finally proven that such a travesty is occurring…the decision to pursue true justice is left up to the candidate without even informing the voters that it occurred.

    #24 Finally, someone speaks the whole truth! Now what can we do to fix it?

    Form a third party that tells the truth. The republicans are only interested in the very rich country clubbers. Look at “our” nominee. Almost no one wants this guy. A weak-kneed Mormon with no will for the fight and billions in the bank. Rockefeller “go-along-get-along” guy. These people have nothing to fight for. They have homes all over the world just like Buffet and the Kennedy’s and Gates and Corzine. They are all the same. Obama and Romney want the same thing. Phony equality for us little people, (an equality of nothing) and huge wealth for the very few “elites” who will control all of us. Yet, all the Republican fools will obligingly vote for Romney, who will govern almost exactly like Obama governs. And nothing will change. In fact, things will continue apace…more Section 8, more money on the EBT cards, different people running the Romney-bamacare system. Same difference. We need a third party with real leaders who will tell the truth and actually demand change. Then we’ll get our rights back. Then we’ll have widely diffused prosperity again. Once the Republicans are actually destroyed and marginalized, we can have a party that is truly difference from the Dems. As it stands today, the Republican leadership is invested in the status quo. We give, they give a little, the leadership gets richer and richer by lying to us. Until we are brave enough to hand everything over to the Democrats by staying home a few cycles, we’ll be in the same situation. Dole-McCain-Rockefeller-Romney=A Dead Party

  • Sparky

    Republicans are so pathetically WEAK and McCain is but one in the collection.

    The most disconcerting part of this email is how much control Karl Rove/Bush/Cheney have on the Republican Party and the nomination process.

    So, Karl Rove decided they needed someone in 2012 that would be more controllable. Yes, Milquetoast Romney will fit the bill nicely. No wonder Rove declared Romney the nominee even before the primaries began. It was all decided long ago by the Old Boys in the backroom.

    Guess the will of the people really does mean nothing to these disgusting people. The entire American political system and most of the politicians are corrupt and must be voted out in 2012.

  • feduptoo

    The reason McCain did nothing about the fraud, is because he is afraid of race riots!

    Just as WND reported last year, retired Generals said O needs impeached, but Republicans were too afraid of causing race riots, the likes of which we have never seen before.

    So we have a Prez that is destroying us, and because he is of a certain color, our reps refuse to touch the subject, allowing him to continue the destruction!

    Which tells me, O not only destroyed his own Party, but he knows that no white person will stand in his way because he is half black! Meaning, it seems he has also ruined any chance of another black, may not ever get elected to this high position again!

    Beware….the upcoming election will be so full of fraud, it will make our heads spin….keep your eyes open when you go to the polls…..the radicals will stop at nothing!

    Danette Clark: The Reparation Agenda: Obama’s Religion
    of Reparations, False Prophets in the White House

    [The first article in this series on President Obama’s Reparation Agenda revealed Sharon Watkins and the Anti-Racist/Pro-Reconciliation Church. Watkins is just one of many pro-reparation religious leaders working with President Obama.


    Driving an ideology that is deceptively subtle, but nonetheless, mirrors that of Father Michael Pfleger, James Cone, and Jeremiah Wright, the false prophets of the White House preach that America is a society of white skin privilege that continues to victimize minorities and that must be made to pay a penalty for the sin of racism.


    As we speak, an organization called the Reparations Coordinating Committee is planning to sue the government and major corporations they believe have profited from slavery. It will be interesting to see how many named defendants have already publicly apologized.]

    House Apology for Slavery Runs Up Against
    Senate Disclaimer for Reparations Redux

    [Some folks are just waking up — hopefully not too late — to understand what social justice, redistribution of wealth, and “reparations” are all about — money and power.

    The second article in Danette Clark’s The Reparation Agenda series, Obama’s Religion of Reparations, False Prophets in the White House, posted earlier today, immediately brought to mind articles I wrote three and four years ago.]

    we are intimidated by Marxist Politicians & racially radical Reverends the

    by their religiously radical Islamist Imams.. but guess what, under Obama
    they have not only formed an unholy alliance, fact is they are gaining on
    US via taking more & more control of media sources (internationally)..

    yes, things look bad for Obama, but that’s just on the surface,
    what’s really going on is hidden much much deeper.. truth and
    journalism are not synonymous, most are just as corrupt as the
    people they supposedly investigate.. if nothing else, every WH
    spokesman that has worked for Obama should be proof enough..
