UN Backed OSCE Sending Observers To Monitor U.S. Election

UN Observers Coming To US Elections

In a move that has Michael Moore celebrating and Conservatives outraged, the United Nations backed Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe announced it will be sending observers to monitor the 2012 election for President of the United States. The OSCE is a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects.

The presence of foreign observers at American polling places was discussed at an April meeting between the OSCE and the NAACP, the League of Women Voters, the ACLU and other organizations. The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights released a letter about the meeting. The letter reads in part:

“On behalf of the undersigned organizations committed to supporting and expanding the civil and human rights of all Americans, including the right to vote, we write regarding the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe’s plans to monitor the upcoming presidential election, and to follow up on a meeting you conducted in April with representatives from the NAACP, League of Women Voters, and others, where concerns were raised about recent efforts to suppress the vote of many Americans in the upcoming election in November 2012. Election observation is an important function of our democratic process and serves as an additional means of protecting the rights of those who are most likely to be disenfranchised and least able to advocate for their right to vote. To that end, we believe it is particularly important that safeguards, including election monitoring, are in place in key areas around the country, and believe your presence would be particularly critical in districts in Colorado, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.”

Republicans have pointed out the states specifically mentioned in the letter are states where the Democrats lost important elections, states where complaints were filed concerning voter fraud by illegal aliens, or states that are key battlegrounds in the upcoming election. They were particularly incensed over the mention of Wisconsin, which they feel is in retaliation for Governor Scott Walker successfully winning the recall election despite the massive influx of Democratic funding and out of state Democratic campaign workers.

The request for observers is reputed to be the brainchild of Democratic and Liberal organizations who have objected to any and all attempts to require voters to present identification in order to vote. The argument between those who support ID as a requirement to vote and those who want people to be able to vote without ID often defies all logic and common sense.

Opponents of voter ID have shouted to the heavens that voter ID is a Republican plot to prevent the poor, the aged, and minorities from voting.

Those who support voter ID have repeatedly pointed out that ID is required to function normally as we go though our daily activities. We must present identification to fly, to pick up a package at the post office, to use a credit card in most stores or when cashing any and all government checks. They point out that ID was even required to enter the Democratic Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, and loudly wonder why Democrats would object so strongly to removing the dead from the voting roles or requiring legitimate voters to simply show the same ID they use constantly in all facets of their lives.

In a recent article in The Hill, the founder of True The Vote voiced her outrage over the participation of a foreign organization in the monitoring of an election in our sovereign nation:

“The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud.”

“”These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.”‘

“We are not in the business of picking winners or losers, but instead, to ensure that the process is iron-clad. Properly trained, capable poll watchers or workers should offer no indication of their partisan or ideological leanings to voters at the polls.”

Despite the fuss raised by Conservative groups, the OSCE claims they have been permitted to observe American elections in the past. For the upcoming election, the observers will come from such countries as Germany, France, Serbia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

“They [will] observe the overall election process, not just the ballot casting,” said Giovanna Maiola, spokeswoman for OSCE. “They are focusing on a number of areas on the state level, including the legal system, election administration, the campaign, the campaign financing [and] new voting technologies used in the different states. The OSCE has regularly been invited to observe elections in the United States, in line with OSCE commitments.”

Some states have explicit laws that do not allow the presence of foreign observers at their polling places. These states include Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota and New Mexico. This has not stopped the OSCE from trying to convince local jurisdictions to allow them in anyway.

“State law does not generally provide for international observers,” Maiola said. “However, through our contacts at state and county level in certain states, we managed to secure invitations at local level and we have taken up the offer to observe. Where this is not possible, we will respect the state regulation on this matter and will not observe in precincts on Election Day.”

This is a thorny issue at best and is sure to infuriate those Americans who are not fond of the United Nations. Some Americans object strenuously to our tax dollars going to the UN, especially in times of economic hardship. They also resent the hostility many member states have directed towards our nation. There is a measurable percentage of our citizens who would be quite happy to see the UN take its entire organization and head somewhere else; perhaps Dubai or Tehran or one of the numerous other dictatorships that dominates the policies of the United Nations and work so strongly against the best interests of the American people.

Of course, the internationalists and environmentalists who are a strong part of the Democratic Party are strong supporters of the United Nations. They are highly offended by those who dislike or criticize the UN and would like to see the UN have a stronger role in American life. Mr. Obama has been a vocal supporter of The Law Of the Sea Treaty, The Small Arms Treaty and other United Nations treaties that the Senate has refused to ratify for decades.

It is important to point out that this entire argument illustrates how critical the 2012 election is to America’s future. One side says it wants less government, less foreign intervention and more respect for American sovereignty. The other side supports Cap and Trade, UN Treaties, Agenda 21 and favors increased American involvement in the global community. It will be up to each and every voter to decide which future they wish to see for our great nation.

UPDATE 3:30 pm CST:

As reported by The Hill, the U.N. will be specifically looking for “voter suppression activities by conservative groups.”

“The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers from its human rights office around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places. It’s part of a broader observation mission that will send out an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries.’

“Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.’

‘The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”

GOP USA responded to the controversy with a very pointed comment:

“This is absolutely crazy. These so-called civil rights groups sure had no problem when Black Panthers were intimidating voters at polling locations. Yet, they are now concerned about voter suppression?”

“And of all groups to be involved… the U.N.? These are the guys who put terrorist nations on the Human Rights Committee. The U.N. also has absolutely NO jurisdiction over American elections, so why don’t they find something better to do.”

“In a day and age, where the integrity of the ballot box is being called into question more and more, it seems odd that these groups are suddenly speaking up. Americans support voter ID laws, yet the left and civil-rights groups oppose those measures at every turn. Real election fraud and voter intimidation cases go unprosecuted under the Obama administration. And now they want U.N. help?”

One thing is clear. There is a deep divide in our nation and both sides are equally passionate in defense of their opinions. Who will prevail and which point of view the majority of Americans support may be decided in part on election day, but the arguments and the issues will continue to simmer long after the election is over.

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do, Max14.comCHECK IT OUT.

    United Nations Human Rights Council lately has included nations like these: China, Nigeria, Madagascar, Algeria, Egypt, Malaysia, Libya, Kenya, Qatar, Jordan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.

    Countries have sought membership of the Commission not to strengthen human rights but to protect themselves against criticism or to criticize others.

    Jul 6, 2012 – Syria is Running for Seat on UN Human Rights Council and May Win.

    The United States does not need to become more like the socialist nations and dictatorships in the United Nations, we know their history on Human Rights and individual freedoms.

    Odd that the nations in the council have the worst records on human rights and very little personal freedom isn't it?

  3. Corey White

    The UN should not be involved in US elections, period. Time to defund this organization and send them to another country to hold their meetings.

  4. Rhonda Martin Baker

    Why on earth are they afraid any votes will be suppressed These people are all guilty evidently…it's normally those that are worried about others that are the guilty party. I say if they are stupid enough to vote for 4 more years of obama do it. The UN has no business in our elections…NONE. IF observing and they find an argument or fraud what will they do? Are they carrying weapons or something?

  5. Brenda Martin Bredehoeft

    Shaking my head!! Ok, fine…bring 'em on…and let's see who they find actually cheating…remember 2008 anmd ACORN?

  6. Kay Gracy

    The thought that any international interference or observance in our sovereign national elections should be greeted with an outcry from the American People! We need to get the UN out of the USA!

  7. Ruth A Lopez

    Yes – I do remember the GOP pretending that ACORN did something wrong – I also remember that NOTHING was ever proven against ACORN. What WAS proven was that the witchunt against ACOTN was nothing but another GOP tactic to stop minorities from voting.

    I just love all the Obamahaters who act like there has NEVER been any history by the GOP of voter fraud and suppression.

    Republicans are still in prison from the fraud they committed last election – not that I expect any of the 'experts' here to know that.

    Bring on the UN monitors – let the world see what we already know: Republicans are doing everything they can to steal this election.

    Because it's the only way they can win; lying, cheating and stealing

  8. Ruth A Lopez

    Yeah, damn shame that the GOP has gotten so corrupt that the UN is preferable to allowing the GOP to keep preverting this country's government.

  9. Ruth A Lopez

    Yes, we do need watchdogs. The problem isn't that we don't know how to vote. the problem is that the GOP is spending millions on cheating in this election by suppressing the vote and stopping the poor, the elderly and minorities from having the same access to voting as rich white people.

    I was working in the polls in Florida in 2000. I SAW people denied their vote by Republicans in that state. I presonally witnessed it.

    I hopw the UN does monitor our elections. And I hope the GOP is stopped from denying Americans their vote.

  10. Frank Singleton

    You know shit is fucked up if the UN has to send in observers to make sure the election is not rigged. Send most of them to Ohio and Florida, that where all the drama is going to be. The world, not just the US has a stake in this election, and they want to make sure there no cheating, voter fraud, voter suppression and the stealing that went on in 2000 & 2004…..

  11. Kim Kranz

    Why are we standing for this? If we need our voting to be supervised, let it be by AMERICANS! We don't need a foreign entity doing this. This is absolutely incredible to be happening in the country that INVENTED the whole idea of voting. Somebody is afraid of losing, that's what this boils down to.

  12. Ruth A Lopez

    Bless you too – and may God bless us all through this process. This is pretty important. Too important to be left to cheaters.

  13. Ed Krupp

    Where is the outrage to show ID to board a plane or drive a car? There are tons of illegals voting in Florida and every other state.All states provide free ID for anyone who is legally here and eligible to vote.Does not matter if your poor(it's free)Minority non English speaking(forms are in 26 languages)Elderly (free assistance at senior centers and libraries) Certain groups just want to keep those illegals voting and will do anything to keep from having them being exposed. NBC proved in February that illegals are and have been voting in Florida elections!

Many of these registrations carried social security numbers that exist for other people, listed non-existent or commercial addresses, or were for convicted felons in violation of state and federal election law.

    In a letter to ACORN, the State Board of Elections reported that 56% of the voter registration applications ACORN turned in were ineligible. Further, a full 35% were not submitted in a timely manner, as required by law. The State Board of Elections also commented on what appeared to be evidence of intentional voter fraud. "Additionally,” they wrote, “information appears to have been altered on some applications where information given by the applicant in one color ink has been scratched through and re-entered in another color ink. Any alteration of a voter registration application is a Class 5 Felony in accordance with § 24.2-1009 of the Code of Virginia."

    ACORN has since been ordered disbanded, but that still does NOT STOP OBAMA and the Liberals from funding them in their new incarnation. Now, don't get me started on the SEIU and all the fraudulent bullshit they have pulled for Obama and friends.

  22. Wayne Stilton

    ruth, when the black panthers were trying ti intimidate voters, i bet you cheered them on…. the UN stands for usless nations, maybe you should get the facts on them before you support foriegn entities " monitoring " US elections…. socialist moron you are.

  23. Dave Reid

    The U.N. has no place at United States voting polls. The Democrat's are whining because they want Barry Soetoro to win a second term. They think this will intimidate the voters at the polls. It won't intimidate me. I will kick the sh.it out of anyone that tries to intimidate me.

  24. Tyler Gillespy

    "How dare they attempt to make sure that the American election cycle is not corrupted by voter fraud or voter suppression!"
    You do realize how ..plainly put ..stupid that comment you made is, right?

  25. Tyler Gillespy

    We invented voting? Uhm, do you remember going over ancient Greece and Rome in your history class? Yeah, our Founding Fathers took the best of both of those societies. We did NOT "invent elections" by any means.

  26. Kim Kranz

    Similar, but not the same. The point is that we're letting someone outside of our country oversee our voting…it's absurd.

  27. Angie Adams

    They need to go home. I am tired of their liberal leanings and their anti America and Anti Israel behavior! We are the United States of America and don't need the UN for anything they offer.

  28. Ray Ogg

    The UN Observers would BE the cause of Voter Fraud and Voter Suppression. Now fix your collar and take your headgear off when you're indoors. If you're going to aspire to defend this nation when you get out of school, then you should at least look the part.

  29. Pam Osborne Cooper

    What a CROCK! I can't believe the so-called League of Women Voters would be involved in inviting a group that has so many members that do not allow women to vote, or in reality, do not even allow women human status, to oversee OUR elections. Other nations have no right to be involved in our elections. The primary voter problems in recent decades have been the Panthers and ACORN, we have changed since the Civil Rights movement. The United States of America may not be perfect, but may I recommend to Michael Moore, the ACLU, and others, to start looking for that perfect utopia where everyone is in total agreement, and when you find it, I will help you pack.

    The first one that gets in my face, gets in my way or questions who I am voting for, gets punched in the face, if they draw a weapon , i will defend myself.

  31. Angie Adams

    Texas governor says he will have them arrested if they interfere in the voter id checks or in any way interfere in Texas election procedures! Good for him!

    The problem is that Democrats do not want a fair election, they want illegal aliens to be able to vote and other liberals to be able to vote multiple times. North Carolina found it had over 2000 registered voters over age 110, and one who was 160. I am sure were we to find that these are conservative voters, Ruth would likely be demanding voter ID in that state. Of course people like Ruth have no idea of the UN lunacy that Obama supports such as Cap and Trade, Agenda 21 and other schemes to bring global socialism and welfare to third world countries. In short. Obama and his Euro Socialist pals want developed nations to send their wealth off to third world countries. That will mean the poor in the Americas will be considered the new middle class. That means no entitlements, no welfare. and no affirmative action for America's disadvantaged. You would think this would get liberals's shorts in a knot, but they don't see the big picture.

    If Obama and his UN buddies have their way, the only poor will be in countries like India and Africa, and only they will qualify for financial assistance of any sort. They will also be shipped to the US in droves and given preferences when seeking jobs. These liberals think they are voting on the side of handouts for our poor and minorities. What they are really voting for is to have the third world underwritten by the United States and other developed nations. And yes, this is truly what these leftist socialists want, because according to the UN, the poorest people in the USA and even Mexico live better than the average person in India or Africa. While we would all like to end world hunger and suffering, we do not want to do so by spreading that suffering to other nations including our own. Contrary to common belief, there is not endless money among developed nations. There is only so much to go around, and we have already strained our budgets to the breaking point. We can not move the entire third world to the US, nor can we afford to give them all jobs, food, cars, and a place to live on our tax dollars. Wake up people, and read, in their own words, what it is these people really wish to eventually do.

  33. John Fitch

    If they are not american, they cannot be there. The aclu, naacp, osce, UN, obama, clinton, Nambla, and all the rest of you whining, crying, slobbering communists that would try to violate our sovereignty in that manner can count on those people being escorted or carried out, it will be their choice. I won't tolerate it. This is my country!

    The time for dead pigs is rapidly approaching. THEY are the bastards who will enable these maggots to interfere in the electoral process.

  35. Darrell Elmore

    Considering the status of the nations providing the observers, and past links to liberal actions to commit voter fraud its a good case of smoke and mirrors. You look there while we play games some place else.

  36. Ruth A Lopez

    Louwanna Pfab "Ruth is obviously content with her version of revisionist history." Nope, and fuck you – I've done what I garuntee you haven't done – worked in the polls for over 20 yrs – the GOP CHEATS AND LIES. I've witnessed it and I'm sick of racists lying and cheating to get their way.

    Bring on the monitors – the only people complaining are the same ones cheating all over the country right now – Republicans – as usual

  37. Ruth A Lopez

    You go work in the polls and watch the GOP cheat election after election and then come and shoot your mouth off. I've been there and I've witnessed it.

    I agree Corey, for the UN to stick it's nose into our elections is rediculous! Tyler Gillespy, you are illinformed, the UN is contemplating placing Hugo Chavez the Venezuelan dictator at the head of the human rights commision. They have done nothing but to use every thing they can to discredit Israel but never once reprimand the Arab nations and Hamas for firing over 7000 rockets into Israel, they do nothing about human rights of Christians who are martryed everyday in and around the world. They themselves have among the most corrupt because they enjoy their status that makes them above the law in any country , their ambassadors can not be prosecuted by anyone or any nation and they have some of the highest rates of crimes aginst women in the organization because they can not be prosecuted. Wake up Tyler Gillespy it is people like you who elected people like Barrack Obama who watched our embassador and the men tasked to protect him die while denying them any help as the White house told all the people who could have helped to stand down.

  39. Voigt Kim

    Tyler Gillespy The UN is one of the most corrupt organization in the world, their ambassadors and department heads are above the law and can not be prosecuted by any entity or nation. They have some of the highest rates for womenizing and crimes against women in their organzation because of it. I agree with Corey completely they have no right to monitor anything in America and need to go and clean up their own organization rather than trying to take power away from soverign nations and over step their welcome. Hugo Chavez dictator of Venezeula is going to head up their human rights and the arabs they have placed in positions of authority constantly accuse Israel of crimes while saying absolutely nothing about the continued attacks by the muslim nations and olrganizations who are against Israel. 7000 rockets fired into Israel, an entire Israeli family killed because they were Jewish (Including a 3 month old baby) killed by hamas simply for being Jewish, not to mention the millions of Christians martryed everyday around the world. Not one mention of those attrosities , no only if it fits their agenda, like usurping power from sovereign nations. No they do not belong here monitoring our elections because I would not doubt for one moment if they found something that was not in Obama's favor they would look the other way.

  40. Tyler Gillespy

    I don't know much about the U.N., and assumed that they have minimal corruption. If what you say is, in fact, true (which I now remember laughable nations being appointed to certain committees, like the one to watch over Human Rights), then I stand corrected. My apologies, then, to all.

  41. Mark A.Stoughton

    I had to provide ID to vote by absentee ballot, There is absolutley no problem requiring ID to vote. It is very obvious that the Dems don't want voter ID as it will effect their ability to skew results with fraudulent votes. The dems have been known to do this for years. ACORN is one example of fraud manipulations by the Dems. No One is really fooled by this, MSM ignores it as much as possible and the dems use the well known trick of accusing their adversaries of the exact thing they themselves are doing. NO UN INVOLVEMENT IN THIS COUNTRY.
