Obama’s Secret Plan to Steal the 2012 Election

If you really needed any more reasons to read WorldNet Daily on a regular basis, its latest issue of Whistleblower magazine might be it. The news site, which has cornered the market on right-wing political paranoia, has come out with a special issue of its print magazine focused on “Team Obama’s strategy for maintaining permanent power.” Among the many underhanded ways Obama intends to steal the election, according to WND, is passing secret legislation to impose universal voter registration, which would naturally result in the registration of some illegal immigrants who “would be afforded the opportunity to vote in multiple locations.”

Then there’s the union-backed scheme for immigration amnesty, plus the court challenges designed to let felons vote. As WND warns ominously, “polls show felons overwhelmingly prefer Democrats.” And it wouldn’t be a grand conspiracy without the involvement of financier George Soros, who is backing a group called the Secretary of State Project that is, according to WND, “gearing up to steal the 2012 election for Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation, from which posts they can help tilt the electoral playing field.”

As the magazine editor writes, all of this points to a nefarious plot by lefties to run the country by any means necessary.

“The people currently running the show in Washington,” said Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, “come from the radical leftist world of Saul Alinsky in which everything they do — no matter how unethical, corrupt and flat-out illegal — is morally justified if it advances their agenda. Winning votes and elections by any means possible is their stock in trade.”

 Really, you just couldn’t make this stuff up.


The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
