Obama’s Secret Plan to Steal the 2012 Election

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

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.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

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 want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
