UN-Linked “Elections Monitors” to Oversee U.S. Election

Written by 

A swarm of hundreds of United Nations-linked “international election monitors,” many of them hailing from nations ruled by repressive dictatorships, will descend on the United States this year to supervise and "monitor" America's elections. The horde of international bureaucrats for the November elections will be 10 times larger — and probably even more controversial — than the smaller “monitoring” mission that sparked a national uproar in 2012. Last time around, Texas even threatened to arrest them, and for good reason. The mission by the international outfit, founded in large part by Yugoslavian and Soviet communists, is supposedly to combat alleged "voter suppression" by conservatives.

Of course, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has been suggesting for months that “Crooked Hillary,” as he refers to Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, would try to rig the 2016 election. It is hardly a far-fetched prospect. Indeed, hacked e-mails from the Democrat Party leadership revealed a plot to rig the primaries in Clinton's favor, forcing Democrat Party leaders to resign in disgrace. To deal with the potential for fraud by Clinton and the establishment behind her in the upcoming presidential elections, Trump is recruiting a nationwide network of poll watchers.

Ironically, though, a coalition of radical anti-American organizations and Clinton supporters claims that the UN-linked monitors are needed in case of Republican efforts to rig the vote — especially after the courts struck down as unconstitutional various federal schemes related to the misnamed "Voting Rights Act." The news about the massive international observer mission comes amid growing fears about the Obama administration, which has been lawlessly supporting Clinton with federal resources while openly threatening to illegally nationalize America's election systems under the guise of declaring them “critical infrastructure.”  

The revelations about the international “full-scale” mission of “elections monitors” is likely to add fuel to the fire of concerns among Republicans and Trump supporters. It is especially controversial considering the fact that many of the “elections monitors” are actually agents of brutal Communist dictatorships, including the ones enslaving Belarus, Azerbaijan, and other oppressed nations. Combined with the fact that the Communist Party USA has gone all in for Hillary Clinton — and is even getting its operatives embedded throughout the Democrat Party, which the CPUSA boasted of “utilizing” — the reason for concerns is obvious. Similar "international observer missions" have long been used to try to legitimize flagrantly fraudulent "elections" supposedly "won" by well-connected communists. 

In 2012, the UN-linked, dictatorship-friendly “Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe,” dubbed OSCE for short, deployed a few dozen election observers to the United States as part of a “limited” mission. That sparked an immediate and massive uproar among Americans — and not just because the mission was made up of people coming from brutal and corrupt dictatorships and regimes such as those ruling Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Albania, Armenia, Bosnia, Georgia, Macedonia, and Ukraine.

Indeed, the backlash was so fierce that Texas leaders threatened to arrest and prosecute the outfit's agents for violations of state law. From then-Governor Rick Perry and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz to then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, the consensus in Texas was clear: Stay out! “UN-related vote monitors warn Texas: Don't mess with us. My response: BRING IT,” tweeted Abbott who now serves as the governor of Texas. He also quoted Sam Houston saying: "Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may."

Following the tweets, Abbot also sent an official letter to then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laying down the law. “It appears that OSCE is under the misimpression that the State Department can somehow help its representatives circumvent the Texas Election Code,” he wrote. “Texas law prohibits unauthorized persons from entering a polling place — or loitering within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance — on Election Day. OSCE monitors are expected to follow that law like everyone else.”

“The fact that representatives of the United States joined the U.S.S.R., Yugoslavia, Romania, and other OSCE member-nations in signing a document at a 1989 conference in Copenhagen has absolutely no bearing on the administration of elections or laws governing elections in the State of Texas,” Abbott also warned. In a bit of humor, Abbott also offered to educate OSCE agents from brutal communist dictatorships on how real, legitimate elections are run.

Still, he expressed concern, especially as the OSCE revealed either its ignorance of — or hostility to — the American federalist system as it relates to elections. OSCE, for example, promised to obey only “national” laws and regulations. In America, though, despite efforts by Obama and others to change that, elections laws and regulations are the responsibility of state and local governments under the U.S. Constitution.

Abbott also expressed concerns over possible political agendas of OSCE's bureaucrats, who were caught meeting with far-left extremist groups in the tank for Democrats, including many affiliated with the disgraced ACORN scheme which used U.S. tax money to advance an extreme statist political agenda and disenfranchise voters. The OSCE also blasted common-sense anti-fraud measures such as photo ID requirements — even though the head of the mission came from a nation with exactly such a requirement.   

“In addition to my desire to defend and enforce Texas election laws, I am also concerned that an unnecessary political agenda may have infected OSCE’s election monitoring activities,” the state’s top law enforcement officer at the time explained, citing the international outfit’s objections to efforts aimed at preventing registration fraud as well as state laws requiring voter ID. “The OSCE may object to photo identification laws and prohibitions on felons voting — but our nation’s Supreme Court has upheld both laws as entirely consistent with the U.S. Constitution.”

Finally, Abbott noted that Texas elections are overseen by elected state officials. And if the unelected self-styled “monitors” violated state law or attempted to interfere in elections, he warned that the OSCE's agents would be subject to legal consequences. The Obama administration responded by lawlessly purporting to give the “monitors” so-called “diplomatic immunity,” an outdated concept that has been abused by numerous dictatorships who send spies, terrorists, and agents to the United States.  

Since that scandal, the UN-linked OSCE, which includes many of the world's most brutal dictatorships as decision-making members, decided that even more “monitors” were needed. So, instead of the 44 deployed during its “limited” missions to the pro-Democrat fraud-plagued 2012 elections, this year the OSCE is planning to send some 500 “monitors” as part of a “full-scale” mission. A full-scale mission takes place when the dictator-friendly OSCE claims there is “limited confidence among election stakeholders in the election administration, the long-term process and election-day proceedings.”

The ironically titled OSCE “Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights” (ODIHR) announced a plan to deploy 100 “long-term” agents and 400 “short-term observers” to supervise U.S. elections on November 8. Incredibly, the outfit claims the United States “has an obligation” to submit to having its elections “observed” by the controversial globalist entity. The OSCE has also claimed it would monitor “compliance” with unspecified “international obligations” supposedly applicable to the United States.  

Radical pro-Big Government, anti-Constitution, pro-Clinton organizations responded that they wanted even more international oversight of America's elections. “We profess to bring democracy to various parts of the world where we monitor elections, but then our own country is embarrassed by its failure to ensure adequate elections here at home,” complained Wade Henderson, who leads the “Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights,” apparently unaware that the United States was set up as a Republic.

Despite his allegations of “racial discrimination” in the elections, the only actual racial discrimination documented in recent years has come from racist “black power” groups such as the New Black Panthers. Among other documented crimes, NBPP thugs were filmed intimidating white voters with weapons outside of polling places. Despite the video evidence, the thugs were not prosecuted by the Obama administration and its politicized and increasingly discredited Justice Department.  

The radical umbrella group seeking international intervention, known as “Leadership Conference” for short, brings together left-wing extremists, anti-constitutional radicals, overtly racist groups such as “La Raza” (The Race), statist-controlled Big Labor groups, known communist front groups officially condemned by authorities as “subversive,” and more. The group sent the OSCE a letter asking for even more monitors, especially for states such as Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Texas, Wisconsin, and others not totally under the control of pro-Clinton left-wing extremists. Kremlin propaganda organs celebrated the letter and the OSCE mission.  

The United States should withdraw from any and all international organizations that include brutal dictatorships as members — and especially those that would seek to interfere in American's internal affairs, such as the OSCE and the UN. There is no reason why agents of communist dictatorships should be in America “monitoring” anything, much less an election. As Americans push for an “Amexit” from the UN, it would be wise to add the OSCE and other similar outfits to the list for Amexit as well.
