  • 1. If you live in Northeast OHIO… Voter Fraud will affect your vote wherever you live Voter Fraud and Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) Election Year 2012 Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D.Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D. - CVR © February 23, 2012
  • 2. Where do you live in Cuyahoga? Well it doesn’t really matter… Voter Fraud is coming to your neighborhood soon!Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D. - CVR © February 23, 2012 http://boe.cuyahogacounty.us/en-US/Maps.aspx
  • 3. If you live in Northeast OHIO… Voter Fraud will affect your vote wherever you live: The Obama for America campaign is actively moving in and housing out-of-state volunteers in Ohio—targeting NE OH Greater Cleveland Congregations, a “subsidiary” of the Alinsky-based Industrial Areas Foundation, and their stealth agenda, has infiltrated more than 40 religious institutions in Cuyahoga County OH; congregants are reporting political activities within some facilities Deceased and other ineligible former residents’ names remain on voter rolls requiring a massive volunteer effort to purge them so they cannot be accessed for illegal voting Ohio Revised Code 3503: Voters – Qualifications - Registration states that persons registering must declare that they have not moved here “for temporary purposes” and have become “permanent” residents. The current state-wide approved voter registration form does not include the language “for temporary purposes” or “permanent;” therefore it does not comply with the state statute, encouraging persons to register fraudulently. The Romney campaign is embarking on an historic door knocking campaign to identify “unaffiliated” voters throughout OH leaning GOP. At some point there will be a voter registration effort. We need the UPDATED VOTER REGISTRATION form in the county offices now. Reports on the internet describe easy remote control hacking into vote counts in Diebold and other voting machinesBeverly A.

  • 5. Securing Diebold et al… • “Anyone with about $10, physical access to a Diebold voting machine and rudimentary knowledge of electronics can remotely hack into the device, according to experts at the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. A hacker could potentially change a person’s votes without them ever knowing about it.” • ‘“We believe these man-in-the- middle attacks are potentially possible on a wide variety of electronic voting machines,’ said Roger Johnston, leader of the assessment team. ‘We think we can do similar things on pretty much every electronic voting machine.’”Beverly A.

  • 6. The Ohio Revised Code stipulates twice the Residency Requirements 3503.02 [First of Two Versions] Residence determination rules 3503.02 [Second of Two Versions] Residence determination rules (C) A person shall not be considered to have gained a residence in any county of this state into which the person comes for temporary purposes only, without the intention of making such county the permanent place of abode.Beverly A.

  • 8. Connecting Barack Obama to founding Socialist Community Organizer Saul Alinsky and to other significant MarxistsBeverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D. - CVR © February 23, 2012
  • 9. Who was Saul Alinsky? • “Born to Russian-Jewish parents in Chicago in 1909, Saul Alinsky was a Communist/Marxist fellow-traveler who helped establish the tactics of infiltration -- coupled with a measure of confrontation -- that have been central to revolutionary political movements in the United States in recent decades. He never joined the Communist Party but instead, as David Horowitz puts it, became an avatar of the post-modern left.” • “Identified ‘unemployment,’ ‘decay,’ ‘disease,’ ‘crime,’ ‘distrust,’ ‘bigotry,’ ‘disorganization,’ and ‘demoralization’ as inevitable by-products of life in capitalist America.” • “Identified a set of very specific rules that ordinary citizens could follow, and tactics that ordinary citizens could employ [no-holds barred methods], as a means of gaining public power” [Read: Rules for Radicals] • “Created a blueprint for revolution under the banner of ‘social change;’” the American power structure was evil to its core and justified any means • [Influenced greatly] two notable disciples: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D. - CVR © February 23, 2012 http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2314

  • 12. Give Me That Old Time Religion… • “IAF strives most aggressively to bring religious institutions into its fold, on the theory that church affiliations will help inject the network not only with access to large amounts of cash, but also with perceived moral credibility. As the IAF handbook states: • “‘… [O]ne of the largest reservoirs of untapped power is the institution of the parish and congregation. Religious institutions form the center of the organization. They have the people, the values, and the money.’" http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Thinkmap%20SDK%202.5%20StandardBeverly A.

  • 14.

  • 28. What is Communist Infiltration “Communist’s method of infiltration is to ‘bore from within,’ disguising themselves as loyalists to an organization they seek to undermine. Once gaining entry, they gradually and subtly change the values and principles of the targeted organization over generations, exhibiting unlimited patience and supreme confidence in the ultimate attainment of their goals.” In America, Communists have achieved substantial inroads into organized labor, academia, the legal profession, race relations, cultural/religious institutions, and government.
