Constitutional Emergency

Power Line

Penned by John Hinderaker

A few years ago, as part of its strategy of facilitating voter fraud as a means of winning close elections, the Democratic Party undertook a campaign to secure as many Secretary of State offices in swing states as possible. From those perches, the Democrats would be in a position to oversee elections and enforce (or decline to enforce) election laws. That strategy has been quite successful, but the Democrats suffered a setback in Iowa in 2010 when conservative Republican Matt Schultz won an upset victory in the Secretary of State race. Since then, Iowa Democrats have targeted Schultz.

That targeting has taken a sinister turn–a criminal one, in fact–as the Des Moines Register reports:

A Des Moines man has been arrested after police say he used, or tried to use, the identity of Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz in a scheme to falsely implicate Schultz in perceived unethical behavior in office.

Zachary Edwards was arrested Friday and charged with identity theft.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety issued a news release saying Schultz’s office discovered the scheme on June 24, 2011 and notified authorities.

Iowa blogger Shane Vander Hart has more, including this mug shot of Zachary Edwards, a Democratic operative:

Edwards is a former Obama staffer who directed “new media operations” for Obama in five states during the 2008 primaries. Thereafter, he was Obama’s Director of New Media for the State of Iowa. In the Democratic Party’s lexicon, “new media” apparently includes identity theft.

Edwards now works for LINK Strategies, a Democratic consulting firm with extraordinarily close ties to Iowa Democrat Tom Harkin. Its principal, Jeff Link, has served as Harkin’s campaign manager and chief of staff. Link, too, is a former Obama staffer. The LINK Strategies web site says that Jeff Link “served as a media consultant to the Obama for President Campaign, coordinating branding, all paid media and polling in 25 states, including seven battleground states (VA, NC, FL, CO, NM, NV, MT)….”

That Edwards allegedly tried to steal the Secretary of State’s identity in order to frame Schultz for “unethical behavior in office” is no coincidence. Iowa Democrats, as Kevin Hall of the Iowa Republican points out, have mounted a campaign of false accusations against Schultz:

Since his surprise victory over incumbent Michael Mauro in November 2010, Secretary of State Schultz has been a target of the Iowa Democratic Party. Interestingly, on June 24, the same day as Zach Edwards alleged crime, Under the Golden Dome, a blog connected to Iowa Democrats, launched a three-part series of articles critical of Matt Schultz. They were based on documents obtained through an open records request from “a tipster.” The blog alleged that a batch of emails from Schultz’s office “raise some serious questions about his ability to remain independent and ensure election integrity”.

Just 15 days earlier, on June 9, the Iowa Democratic Party filed an ethics complaint against Schultz, claiming the Secretary of State of used public resources to campaign against presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman. The Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board dismissed the complaint on July 19.

So on its face, Edwards’s identity theft appears to be part of a coordinated effort by the Iowa Democratic Party to bring down the Republican Secretary of State so he can be replaced with a Democrat. We hope that Edwards will get the long jail term that he deserves, but the more important question is, from whom was he taking instructions? Circumstantially, one would guess from his boss, Jeff Link. But if so, who was instructing (and paying?) Link’s firm? The White House? Tom Harkin? Iowa’s Democratic Party?

Much like Watergate, which began with a seemingly simple (if puzzling) burglary and ultimately unraveled the Nixon administration, it is impossible to say how far the trail of criminality will go if the Edwards case is pursued aggressively. Will that happen? I don’t know; stay tuned.

Christine, it may be that some are given messages to help their anxiety, while OTHERS, are NOT given messages BECAUSE Our Lord wants them to labor in this field! (Not that they aren't meant to labor, but to ease their anxiety for physical reasons.)  Some are sent to labor in the field of evangelism, others are sent to work to protect them, and still others are sent to labor in the employment of the king, (earthly government)  while most of us on this site have labored in more than one field. We're here because this is a site for the protection within that earthly kingdom of the Freedoms Our Lord so graciously bestowed on mankind over 200 years ago. It's because of those freedoms that most of the missionaries have been sent out worldwide in the last 100 yrs, and right now that's why satan's working SO HARD to destroy that freedom. If he takes down America, he'll have little to stop him from taking down the rest of the world,  SINCE GOD HAS USED AMERICA AND HER MILITARY MIGHT AND PROWESS, TO PROTECT THOSE WORLDWIDE FROM THE TIME OF HER INCEPTION! (If you doubt that check into the reason OUR NAVY WAS STARTED TO PROTECT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FROM THE BARBARY  PIRATES, SOON AFTER AMERICA BECAME A NATION! (Modern day islamists!!)

Well said Beverly!! I think all or at least most of here are Christians, but we're Patriots too. We love our Country, our Republic, BUR we don't even like what some are doing to it!! Even God has Soldiers!!

Bill, I don,t know about all that,but one thing i do know is that God according to the bible wants us to stand up be strong and have faith in him,and he will answer our prayers.But he does not want us to just sit back and wait for him to do all the work,we have to do our part.History is about to repeat itself  and we can,t sit on the side lines and watch. We have to participate by,talking to our neighbors,blogs,emails,phone calls well i think you get the message.If i am able i will be at that hearing if the coward attends. Joe in Colorado)

Spell check would help??.

Joe, I'm enrolled in IADT to update my artistic skills (At my age I'm flabbergasted God gave me the chance!) and my Faculty Adviser recommended I get the Firefox web browser since it was more compatible with their virtual campus. IT HAS SPELL CHECK INCLUDED AND IS DRIVING ME NUTS BECAUSE I EVEN HAD TO ADD THE COLLEGE NAME TO THE DICTIONARY BUT IT'S WORKING ON THIS SITE. It's a free download but seems to work a lot too much with Google for my liking. It's an open ended browser, so doesn't really belong to Google.

I believe you as my Heavenly Father has talked to me on several occassions.

You got that right.

Or totus (teleprompter of the US) whoever truly IS the one behind the curtain. (Although most of us think we know!)

Whenever a Socialist/Marxist Democrat bashes a Conservative Republican for doing or saying something derogatory or dishonest that is precisely what the Socialist/Marxist Democrat is doing!  Obama's SOTU campaign speech was nothing more than a rerun of his 2010 SOTU campaign speech with one exception of his Republican talking points about jobs and opening energy resources.

Obama continues to double down on taxing the rich to feed the never ending entitlement programs of Welfare and Food Stamps!

The making of elections free and free of fruad goes to each state. Each state has slightly different elections laws. Therefore they have the responsibility to run the elections. They should check every machine and every paper ballot to make sure they are right. This is what the need to do. The Feds should check the candidates and make sure they are elegible to run for office. This includes being a natural born citizen, being of good standing, no criminal record, checking ID to be sure they are who they say they are..  The states have every right to demand a picture ID of all candidates on the ballot and should do so. The state is responsibile for this. It is understood that Eric Holder is opposed to ID verification but nonetheless, the states have a right to demand it and they should. Holder also thinks the dead should vote. That is crazy and we as a people want a just and fair election no dead voters, no felons in the Penn voting, no illegal aliens voting, only registered voters voting. No one else. Chek ID's and make sure the election is fair and honest. Keep the polling place clean and the Black Panthers or the communist away from the polling place. Allow no actions that are instigating or that violate the voters rights. This is the way to do it. Let the winner be chosen legally.


Awsome bit of information that needs the scrutiny of law enforcement (not DOJ) if all the alegations are true not only will he serve a lenghtly prison sentence,it would behoove Iowa to not only implicate obama but tie him in directly(checks,emails,phone calls,text) or whatever to get a conviction of this impostor in our White House.I can only imagine how high and wide the corruption really goes,but I,m willing to donate to whom ever needs help getting a conviction on obama- that means back to living in the streets if i have to.......Joe

This is a real NIXON ReRun...... Watergate was so simple, that if NIXON would have just kept his mouth shut,recorder off,and not accepted any calls! Ford and carter would never hae happened! Now this Edwards thingy is like the 3 Stooges X a bunch, You don= know who is gonna bump into the next or where the other one is gonna blame.....thank God there aren't any Obvious women involved yet.......or they would be pregnant or smoking CIGARS......!
