Barack Obama is attending a little meeting this morning at the White House that will likely be all but ignored by both media and pundits. It’s with a group his White House, under the direction of Valerie Jarrett, initiated last year involving the election process. Now tell me reader, how comfortable are you with the idea of THIS White House, working extra hard to influence the upcoming election process? Yeah, me neither…
What Barack Obama did for 2012, he hopes to do again for the 2014 Midterms.
Check out this portion of the president’s White House schedule for today:
10:45 am || Meets with the President’s Commission on Election Administration on voter access
Just what is the “President’s Commission on Election Administration on voter access”?
Here’s an official blurb on the newly formed group, from May of 2013:
Presidential Commission on Election Administration Launched
WASHINGTON, May 21, 2013 — The Presidential Commission on Election Administration was officially launched today, following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union pledge to identify non-partisan ways to shorten lines at polling places, promote the efficient conduct of elections, and provide better access to the polls for all voters.

Now check out this public statement given TODAY by this same organization:
Presidential Commission on Election Administration Presents Recommendations to President Obama
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2014 – The Presidential Commission on Election Administration today presented President Obama with a series of recommendations designed to help local and state elections officials improve all voters’ experience in casting their ballots. The Report is based on a six-month study conducted by the 10-Member Commission of the problems that have plagued voting in the past and the issues that will confront the American voter in the future.
The Commission concluded unanimously that the “problems that hinder the efficient administration of elections are both identifiable and solvable.” The Report offers certain key recommendations and numerous administrative best practices to improve the problem areas identified in the President’s Executive Order charging the Commission. In formulating these recommendations, the Commission heard testimony from around the country and received and evaluated the results of a survey of thousands of state and local administrators. LINK
Ah yes, the use of Executive Order. It is no accident that Barack Obama so recently came out declaring himself ready to expand his use of Executive Power even further in 2014 – just as it is no accident Executive Power is a foundational component of this newly formed Election Commission.
The Obama White House has attempted to claim this commission is “bi-partisan”. Let’s delve into the truth behind this lie:
It is chaired by Robert F. Bauer, Barack Obama’s personal attorney and adviser going back several years. Served as White House counsel until 2011 and is still actively involved with the DNC.
Another member is Trey Grayson, an Obama-approved Republican. Grayson was once a registered Democrat who supported Bill Clinton, who, upon wanting to run for office in Kentucky, changed his affiliation to Republican. He ran against Rand Paul for Kentucky Senator, and upon losing by a wide margin, accepted his current position at director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School. Oh, and he also slammed Sarah Palin for being “unfit for office”.
Larry Lomax is Nevada’s Clark County Registrar. The same Clark County that has delivered Election Day victories to Barack Obama and Harry Reid. Remember that odd voting machine black out when Harry Reid was scrambling to win re-election in 2010? That was Clark County folks, and THAT is why the Obama White House wants Clark County to bring its particular brand of “expertise” to elections all across the nation in 2014.
This is no non-partisan commission. The Republicans are Big Government statists, the Democrats are far left-socialists, and the entire process is being overseen by an Obama White House working diligently to deliver victory for itself in 2014.
Rest assured though, there is push back. 2014 will not go the way of the statists, and Barack Obama WILL be sent to the trash-heap of history…
(Thank you to R.I. for pointing me in the direction of today’s meeting.)

AND HE’S DETERMINED NOT TO BE COUNTED AMONG THEM.
