05.Nov.2004 To All Concerned Americans: Will it be r/evolution or civil war? *First published Memorial Day, 2004 .
I also didn’t believe the electoral fix was hardened in such concrete...
I think the opportunity for r/evolution has passed + ominous historical forces are plunging us toward civil war...
Osama bin Laden’s aim of bankrupting America seems redundant.
His aim, if he’s not still under the regime’s employ, might be to wake us up...

''You can't have a country if you have a safe haven for people who chop people's heads off. These folks are determined. They're killers. They chop people's heads off. They're getting money from around the world. They're getting recruits''.
Rumsfeld was careful to stress that victory in the battle of Fallujah would not end the insurgency.
But he argued that if successful elections are held in 00.Jan.2005 as a result of defeating the insurgents there, a ''tipping point'' in securing Iraq could be reached,
similar to one he said had been reached in Afghanistan, where unexpectedly smooth polls were carried out last month URL: https://www.commondreams.org/headlines04/1109-01.htm
noting that while U.S. forces clearly defeated the ragtag Mehdist militia of Muqtada al-Sadr in Najaf in 00.Aug.2004 it also succeeded in boosting the young cleric's political standing within + even beyond the majority Shiite community to unprecedented heights, according to surveys taken the following month.
That, of course, is not the way the Bush administration sees either Operation Phantom Fury (soon to be renamed ''New Dawn'') or last August's Najaf campaign, which it has depicted as both a military + a political victory because of Sadr's tentative decision to take part in January's vote and the militia's partial disarmament in Baghdad's Sadr City. URL: https://www.commondreams.org/headlines04/1109-01.htm
''The entire Arab public opinion, which had hoped for Bush's (electoral) defeat, has been watching developments carefully'', noted As'ad Abukhalil, an Iraq specialist at the University of California at Berkeley. ''But now they will see the scenes of carnage on live TV contrasted with the celebratory ambiance in Washington, DC.''
The campaign also threatens to split the interim Iraqi government whose president, Ghazi al-Yawer, has opposed a major offensive and last April threatened to resign after hundreds of civilians were reported killed when U.S. Marines last tried to take Fallujah.

11.Nov.2004 Opel-Krise: Rot-Grün fordert Entlassung von Managern
Damit habe er gegen Bestimmungen verstoßen, die ihm nach seiner Freilassung im April auferlegt worden waren. Demnach durfte er weder Interviews geben noch sich mit Ausländern treffen.
Angesichts der strengen Auflagen nach seiner Freilassung hatte Vanunu in mehreren Ländern politisches Asyl beantragt.
Auch die Watchdog-Gruppe People for the American Way (PFAW) beklagt eine "irreparable Beschädigung der Bürgerrechte".
Doch je länger die Wahl zurückliegt, desto schwerer fällt es, all diese Meldungen sinnvoll auseinander zu sortieren.
Selbst das linke Wochenblatt "Nation" beantwortet seine eigene Überschrift "Wurde die Wahl gestohlen?" mit einem zögerlichen "wahrscheinlich nicht".
Greg Palasts These vom Stimmenklau in Ohio, schreibt "Nation"-Politikchef David Corn, sei "höchst unwahrscheinlich" + "vielleicht der Beginn eines Falls, aber kein Fall für sich".
Nur ein paar Lokalzeitungen + TV-Sender blieben dem Thema noch auf den Fersen.
Dabei sei der Skandal doch nicht nur, ob die Unregelmäßigkeiten das Wahlergebnis verändert hätten, sondern
dass es überhaupt zu Unregelmäßigkeiten gekommen sei.
Nach dem bisherigen Ergebnis hat Präsident Bush bei der US-Wahl am 02.Nov.2004 59,7 Millionen Stimmen erhalten - sein Herausforderer John Kerry nur 56,2 Millionen.
Und niemand behauptet bisher, dass bei der Wahl mehr als 3,5 Millionen manipuliert wurden.
Nach absoluten Stimmen hat Bush die Wahl also klar gewonnen.

Den Haag - In Eindhoven wurde ein Klassenzimmer von einer Brandbombe schwer beschädigt. Die Polizei ging allerdings von dem Werk Jugendlicher aus, das nicht unbedingt mit den Entwicklungen der letzten Tage in Verbindung stehen müsse. In der Stadt war Anfang der Woche ein Anschlag auf eine muslimische Schule verübt worden. In Rotterdam wurden zwei Molotowcocktails auf eine Kirche geworfen, es entstand leichter Sachschaden. Die Zahl der Anschläge seit der Ermordung des islamkritischen Regisseurs Van Gogh am 02.Nov.2004 erhöhte sich damit auf 17. URL: https://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,druck-327423,00.html

11.Nov.2004 Several years ago you were trying to lobby a law that would protect people from unendorsed interventions into one man-s psyche.
Where is this bill now?
-Mr. Lopatin from the Security Committee used to work on the bill concerning informational-psychological security back in 2000.
However, he is no longer a delegate; and the law is nonexistent.
Russians remain unprotected from such concealed message that could be"hiding" in the media.
There is no state control over the works in psychotechnologies whatsoever.
In the meantime, USA approaches this subject much better.
More than 140 universities conduct thorough research in this area. URL: https://english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=14567
„I allow for the possibility that perpetrators can and do use such methods to manipulate one-s conscious for the purpose of creating terrorists-kamikazes,“ stated Dr. Smirnov in his interview to MK.
Professor Igor Smirnov was in fact the world-s first man to get into the human mind by means of a computer.
Back then, society was completely unaware of the so-called Shakhids. Now, the most logical comes to mind: what triggers a person to commit such act of violence?
How come the instinct of self-preservation fails to block one-s inner urge to destroy oneself? This was the main topic of my discussion with Dr. Smirnov.
The explosive oblivion
-How is it possible to erase one's memory?
-There exists an entire array of possible methods.
Majority of them are psychochemical.
Electroshock can also have the same effect on a person.
However, nothing works better than the so-called semantic influence, when a person is given certain orders that he then executes without hesitation.
Personally, I wouldn-t want to go into details on such matters.
As a result of such „outside influence“ a person-s „self“ gets totally blocked.
Instead, another"self" is being created. That second identity in turn can have a number of various programmed urges, such as killing oneself.
-Are there many people in our country capable of carrying out such procedures?
-I can-t say for sure. Obviously, the knowledge acquired at school is not enough to carry out such experiments.
I think the amount of such specialists is rather limited.
-Do you think you could restore people-s memory?
-This is a very hard procedure. Thing is, those people will have difficult time recollecting that lost time fragment that had been torn out of their lives.
We did manage to help several our patients to regain their memory partially.
How to"cure" one-s mind
Many still remain rather doubtful about the fact that it is possible to affect one-s behavior while surpassing his conscious.
In reality however, people have been doing this for a hundred years already.
-As far as I know, we are the first in this field of research.
-Interesting as it may seem, but you are right. Similar methods have been born in Russia and American almost simultaneously;
in Russia however, they emerged 9 months earlier. Our department at the institute was in fact the first in the world. American laboratory in Michigan however is our main rival nowadays.
00.000.1993 Americans established a company especially for me; I am currently its board member. Due to my presumptions however, I refused to stay there for good.
Many of my colleagues have immigrated a long time ago and now lead pretty comfortable lives there. Unfortunately, our inventions are not in high demand in Russia-
-Is it possible to defeat terrorism?
-Only informational war is capable of defeating terrorism completely. And we possess this weapon. Peoples- actions can in fact be controlled by unnoticed acoustic influence.
Look-it-s easy. All I have to do is record my voice, apply special coding, which converts my voice to mere noise and afterwards, all we have to do is record some music on top of that.
The words are indistinguishable to your conscious; however, your unconscious can hear them clearly.
If we were to play this music over + over again on the radio for instance, people will soon start developing paranoia.
This is the simplest weapon.
An image can also be coded.
After 12-14 minutes the information begins to get into one-s conscious.
Our department is the only one in the world that possesses such instrument of informational war.
However, no one seems to be interested in it. URL: https://english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=14567
11.Nov.2004 "Es wird einen Anfang für den Frieden geben, wenn die Führung des palästinensischen Volkes hervortritt und sagt: 'Helft uns, eine demokratische Gesellschaft aufzubauen'", sagte Bush.
"Wenn das passiert - + ich glaube, dass das geschehen wird, weil ich glaube, dass alle Menschen in Freiheit leben wollen - werden die USA mehr als bereit sein, beim Aufbau der für eine freie Gesellschaft notwendigen Institutionen zu helfen, damit die Palästinenser ihren eigenen Staat haben können."

10.Nov.2004 Lost votes
In a county in North Carolina, 4.500 votes went missing due to software problems v the computer had run out of memory.
Not very impressive, especially for a country that likes to stick its unwanted nose into the electoral affairs of other nations + then to make snide remarks.
On the basis of this evidence, the USA had better not ever again make any statement whatsoever about fair voting procedures, anywhere.
In conclusion, does this surprise anyone?
Not really, since Bush [BGW968] + his regime have spent four long years telling lies + cooking up tall stories.
The question remains, why did Kerry [KJF966] throw in the towel so soon, since all this was taking place.
Didn't he know? Wasn't he informed? Or did something more sinister happen?
Or, could something else be behind both Messrs.
Bush [BGW968] + Kerry [KJF966], such as the neo-conservative clique orchestrated by Cheney, a form of supra-political party eminence grise
which really pulls the strings in the USA + dictates Washington's foreign + domestic policy? URL: https://english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=14556
Why did Kerry [KJF966] throw in the towel so soon?
02.Nov.2004 -now the increasing evidence pointing toward election fraud in the USA, as the appearance of Osama bin Laden bang on cue was suspicious, to say the least .
Exit polls in sensitive districts just don't add up to the official figures. Did Bush [BGW968] fix it?
In Ohio, for instance, the sensitive state which gave Bush [BGW968] the 20 electoral college votes he needed, CNN exit polls among women awarded Kerry [KJF966] the vote by 53 to 47% + among men by 51 to 49%.
The question was "Who did you vote for“ but the point is were the votes counted?
Let us examine the various complaints against the official result on 02.Nov.2004 + let us see in how many ways the Bush [BGW968] regime could have influenced the vote, through ballot tricks.
Absence of Control
Russian observer Aleksei Ostrovsky declared that he was shocked by what he saw. "It is enough to say 'I am Mr. Smith' + (the person) is allowed to vote.
The same person can exit one polling station + vote again using the same procedure“. Spoilage URL: https://english.pravda.ru/printed.html?news_id=14556
10.Nov.2004 Die US-Regierung will die im August erhöhte Terror-Warnstufe für Finanzinstitutionen in New York, New Jersey und Washington wieder herabsetzen.
Washington - Die Alarmstufe "orange" werde wieder auf "gelb", der mittleren Stufe auf der fünfstufigen Skala der Regierung, zurückgesetzt, berichten US-Medien unter Berufung auf Vertreter des Heimatschutzministeriums. Eine offizielle Erklärung des Ministeriums stehe bevor.
Gelb bedeutet eine erhöhte Gefahr, orange gilt als hohe Bedrohung durch einen Anschlag.
Die Terrorstufe war nach Geheimdienstinformationen erhöht worden, wonach das Terrornetzwerk El Quaida Finanz-Gebäude in den USA für Anschläge ins Visier genommen habe.
Später stellte sich heraus, dass ein Großteil dieser Warnungen bereits mehrere Jahre alt waren. URL: https://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,druck-327327,00.html
10.Nov.2004 -derzeit- Betroffen von der erhöhten Warnstufe sind die Gebäude des IWF Internationalen Währungsfonds + Weltbank + die Zentrale der Citigroup + New York Stock Exchange Börse.
In den USA gilt ansonsten die Warnstufe gelb mit Ausnahme von New York, wo seit dem 11.Sep.2001 vor vielen Gebäuden ein erhöhtes Aufgebot an Sicherheitskräften präsent ist.
Dies werde nach Informationen des Heimatschutzministeriums auch so bleiben.
10.Nov.2004 An end to exit polls. Ed Gillespie has called for an end to exit polls, which will soon be the sole remaining means of double-checking the accuracy of the electronic vote.
(Odd how the right liked exit polls in Venezuela...) This paragraph is rich:
00.Nov.2000 the exit data was wrong on Election Day.
00.000.2002 the exit returns were wrong on Election Day. +
02.Nov.2004 the exit data were wrong on Election Day - all three times, by the way, in a way that skewed against Republicans + had a dispiriting effect on Republican voters across the country."
Why is it that the RNC head can see the pattern which so many of our Democratic brethren refuse to acknowledge?
Of course, that pattern actually indicates a fraudulent final tally, not fraudulent exit polling.
Since the corporate media heads want to stay in the GOP s good graces, expect Ed to get his evil way on this.URL: https://cannonfire.blogspot.com/

10.Nov.2004 VotersUnite! presents the following compilation of problems reported in the media about the 2004 general election .
Starting with early voting, we are seeing a wide array of problems, some of which appear in multiple states.
This page allows you to see how widespread the problems are as they accumulate. URL: https://www.votersunite.org/electionproblems.asp
In other words, there is no way to verify that the data coming out of the machine is the same as what was legitimately put in by voters.
Labor unions have been part of a number of major stories on the presidential campaign, especially stories about Senator Kerry [KJF966]'s selection of John Edwards as a running mate.
up until a few weeks ago There was some reason for that.
The AFL-CIO has not taken a position on the war + most of the international unions have followed suit.
That changed at the conventions last month in California of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the American Federation of State, County + Municipal Employees (AFSCME).
Kerry [KJF966] spoke at both conventions his speeches received significant media coverage.URL: https://www.ilcaonline.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=index&catid=30

19.Jul.2004 the ILCA published an article on the media's failure to cover this turn of events.
The conclusion byKerry [KJF966] that an investigation could not possibly reverse the election may quite possibly have been premature.
But the question that both activists + the media should be asking is not whether there was enough fraud + errors to decide the election, nor even whether there was more than is usual,
but whether there was any fraud or errors, where the problems occurred, how they can be prevented in the future +- in particular -
whether new kinds of fraud were permitted by new technologies + by the privatization of our election process.

Mindestens zwei Abgeordnete anderer Fraktionen - also aus dem demokratischen Lager - haben zweimal für den Kandidaten der NPD gestimmt. Ein Eklat zum Schaden des Landes, denn sie demonstrierten in geheimer Wahl, dass ihnen die nötige Distanz zu den Rechtsextremisten fehlt, das selbstverständliche Wissen, dass man der NPD selbst aus taktischen Gründen nicht die Stimme geben darf.

00.000.2005-00.000.2006 -in-or- "If Bush [BGW968] retains control of the White House, we can expect a neocon fascist dictatorship or martial law emergency regime possibly as the result of synthetic terrorism. The neocons are in a desperate flight forward mentality which seeks to avoid the penal consequences of what they have already done with Valerie Plame + the Niger yellowcake forgeries + the Israeli mole scandal + the Chalabi betrayal of state secrets.--+++--- The neocon preference is for early war with Iran.
War with Russia + China cannot be excluded somewhat further down the road."
Add to that the relentless horror that will be inflicted when the effects of Peak Oil (also see From The Wilderness and Richard Heinberg ) crash home in earnest, the body bags pile higher with new wars + the lives of Americans (including Bush [BGW968] drones) + people all over the world continue to be destroyed.
Some members of the current Bush [BGW968] crime organization may leave or retire + the possibilities include Donald Rumsfeld + John Ashcroft (possibly replaced with Racicot, Marc a long-time friend of Bush [BGW968] [BGW968] + W’s first choice for attorney general in 2000).
Expect their replacements to be less well known criminals who, if anything, may be more toxic.
Robert Lederman wrote of Racicot, Marc :
"Numerous members of the Bush [BGW968] family, including his father + brothers + at least one of GW's prospective cabinet appointees—potential GW Bush [BGW968] Attorney General Racicot, Marc —have a history of alleged involvement in drug running at the highest levels.
We're not talking about buying drugs for personal use here but massive importations of heroin + cocaine with the full involvement of foreign dictators like George Bush [BGW968] pal Manuel Noriega + the Mafia." (See Murder and Drug Running in Montana )
In Robert Payne’s biography The Life and Death of Adolf Hitler , he writes of Hitler (whose Third Reich was, in fact, financed by the Bush family ): "For all the foreseeable future, he will remain to haunt us, more alive than ever although he is dead. He hides in shadowy places and at the pinnacle of power, always urging men to commit the ultimate crime, the perfect atrocity, the most ferocious massacres.
Into the ears of generals and politicians he whispers:
"Be merciless. It is very easy now because I have lived. I have reduced the value of man to a fraction of what it was before.
You will find, if you continue along the path I have opened for you, the value of man will decline still further.
Remember, mankind is always valueless and its only use is to serve our interests.
We alone are transmitters of civilization + the people are nothing but cattle. Napalm is good for them."
Hitler himself wrote:
"The victor will not be asked, later on, whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war, it is not right that matters, but victory. Have no pity."
Hitler had nothing on the Bush [BGW968] [BGW968] administration.
What, if any, silver lining can be found in the wake of this new goose-step in the abyss?
Perhaps only that the same bellicose, predictable and clumsy villains remain right where they have been for the last four years:
right in front of us. Better that than a crafty and likeable neoliberalKerry [KJF966] administration that lulls the world to sleep before poison is administered.
We cannot be fooled.
Larry Chin is a freelance journalist and a Global Research Contributing Editor.
The Bush [BGW968] syndicate owns and runs the machines that make the votes. They control all branches of the federal government.
There is nothing more painful than witnessing the Kerry [KJF966] voters, liberals + progressives as they agonize over "what went wrong,"
second guessing their Herculean efforts, grasping for solutions in outdated ideas + vowing how "next time, we’ll work harder + we’ll really get out the vote!" + that "we’ll nominate even better candidates!"
Still others are asking reasonable questions.
Why aren’t O’Dell, Walden + Bush, Jeb + Blackwell, J. Kenneth under arrest, or in jail?
Exactly how did Associated Press pull it off on election night?
Will any of the Bush [BGW968] administration criminals ever be punished for their war crimes?
Then one must ask, who is going to prosecute?
Who is going to hear the cases?
The Bush [BGW968] Justice Department?
The Bush [BGW968] FBI?
The Supreme Court?
When you play fair in a rigged game, it doesn’t matter how hard you work, or even what you do.
Insanity is repeating the same mistake, expecting a different result.

00.000.2002 -during the- mid-term elections : The technology involved had a trial run. Georgia had Diebold machines in every precinct.
As a result, a popular Democratic governor + senator were both unseated in what the media called an "amazing" 16 % swing.
Diebold’s O’Dell, Walden a top Bush fundraiser, publicly committed himself to delivering his home state Ohio’s votes to Bush.
At Diebold, the election division is run by Urosevich, Bob.
Urosevich, Bob ’s brother, Urosevich, Todd, is a top executive at "rival" ES&S.
Originally Urosevich, Bob +Urosevich, Todd were staked by Ahmanson, Howard a member of the
Council For National Policy , a right-wing steering group stacked with Bush true believers.
Ahmanson, Howard is also one of the bagmen behind the extremist Christian Reconstruction Movement ,
which advocates the theocratic takeover of USA democracy.
Diebold + ESS + Sequoia + SAIC -The four companies are interconnected;
Diebold + ESS + Sequoia + SAIC are not four "competitors".
Ahmanson, Howard has large stakes in ES&S,
ES&S former CEO was Republican Senator Hagel, Chuck of Nebraska.
00.000. -When Hagel, Chuck ES&S CEO ran for office, Hagel, Chuck own ES&S company counted the votes + Hagel, Chuck victory was considered "an amazing upset".
11.Nov.2004 -still- Hagel, Chuck has a million $ stake in ES&S.
Sequoia is the corporate parent of a private equity firm, Madison Dearborn ,which is partner in the Carlyle Group . (Also see here .)
Meanwhile, SAIC is referred to a "shadowy defense contractor".
SAIC have gotten into the vote count game directly +
SAIC have gotten into the vote count game through spinoffs by SAIC top brass,
SAIC top brass including Admiral Owens, Bill former military aide to Cheney, Dick +
SAIC top brass including Carlyle Group honcho Carlucci, Frank +
SAIC top brass including ex-CIA chief Gates, Robert.
SAIC s history of fraud charges + security "lapses" haven’t prevented SAIC from becoming one of the largest Pentagon + CIA contractors +
SAIC will doubtless encounter few obstacles in its entrance into USA vote counting business.
The mad rush to install these unverifiable computers is driven by the Help America Vote Act, signed by Bush!
The chief lobbying group pushing for the act (while we dumb asses sat out here + thought, ‘That sounds like a good idea!’) was a consortium of arms dealers including Northrup Grumman + Lockheed Martin .
When you hear people saying, ‘take a deep breath, we will pull through this’, ‘we need to work harder’, ‘we need to organize’—no. We will not. It’s over.
Unless electronic vote tabulation is history + these companies are driven out of business, it’s their country. Not ours.
The US political + economic system, exemplified by Bush-Cheney, is deeply criminalized.
It is designed to profit by killing things.
It thrives on war and oppression.
It is sustained by collusion, fraud, lies + cover-up + the indoctrination + manipulation of minds.
It does not, + never has, represented its people.
Its operatives heed no laws.
They "make" law.
These facts must be burned into the consciousness of every decent human being.
As Mike Ruppert writes in Crossing The Rubicon :
"That profits of crime and war, which are destructive of human life, of labor, of happy, healthy neighborhoods (whether in the US or in Afghanistan, Africa and Iraq) are in effect a keystone of the global economy and a determinant of the success in a ruthless competition, is a compass needle for human civilization. One cannot expect to follow the recipe for roadkill stew and produce a crème brulee."
Criminals do not obey laws. Criminals do not believe in "democracy".
Criminals do not "permit" elections.
It is foolish, then, to expend one’s energies in "clean" election activities + expect good results. To quote one of Bush [BGW968] many recent Freudian non-slips, "we make elections." The 2004 presidential election was just one more "manufacture".
How Kerry [KJF966] Unwon the Presidency
10.Nov.2004 Hamburg - "Die konkrete Tatausführung wurde nach unseren Erkenntnissen von Chalid Scheich Mohammed und Osama Bin Laden geplant", sagte der Präsident des Bundesamtes für Verfassungsschutz, Heinz Fromm, vor dem Hanseatischen Oberlandesgericht in Hamburg.
Die späteren Piloten der entführten Flugzeuge vom 11.Sep.2001 um Mohammed Atta seien zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch nicht eingeweiht gewesen, sondern waren laut Fromm nur allgemein zur Teilnahme am Dschihad entschlossen. Stattdessen hätten die künftigen Terroristen ursprünglich in Tschetschenien für den Islam kämpfen wollen + seien ohne konkrete Tatpläne zur militärischen Ausbildung in Lagern am Hindukusch gereist.
Dass die Anschläge nicht in Deutschland geplant worden seien, habe mittlerweile aber auch der offizielle Untersuchungsbericht zum 11.Sep.2001 festgestellt, betonte Fromm. URL: https://www.spiegel.de/panorama/0,1518,druck-327141,00.html
Another prediction I have is that Powell over at the FCC will begin to pass newer regulations on ISPs + most importantly hosting companies. The internet, as a result, will become prey to the media consolidation and "standards" that are all the rage at the current FCC. Now, not to sound paranoid, but this, along with the expansion of the Patriot act, doesn't make me all confident about the future of the last true marketplace of ideas available to the american people.
THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN- SO, WHAT DO WE DO?
The corporate media isn't reporting the news, but it's there, for anyone to see. On an hourly basis, voting irrgularities and blatant fraud are being reported, in just about every state. Even Ralph Nader has been investingating attempted fraud in New Hampshire.
Evidence Mounts That The Vote May Have Been Hacked
While the major networks here in this country air reports issued to them by their "imbedded" reporters, extolling the galliant and glorious efforts by the occupation forces, many stories have been ignored.

10.Nov.2004 Fascism on the Rise in USA Commentary by Amanda Osborne
Ironically enough, the death blow was struck by that most democratic of rights, the right to vote.
Many are gearing up to investigate and determine what actually happened to the votes of millions of Americans or possibly the votes of many non-existent Americans.
One organization that is investigating the matter is BlackBoxVoting.org which is run by Bev Harris.
Mrs. Harris has turned over evidence to authorities regarding vote fraud + has come to the conclusion that fraud did occur on 02.Nov.2004 .
However her group is uncertain as to the scope of the possible conspiracy.
Unfortunately, Mrs. Harris has an uphill battle as, in many cases, no paper trail exists to verify the electronic voting data.
Over the past few years, Republicans have fought to prevent any type of paper trail through electronic voting.
Despite printable ATM type receipts being a reasonable fail-safe, Republicans and corporations such as Diebold fought hard + eventually won the battle against a verifiable voting system.
Without question, the evidence presented thus far should raise suspicion among honest individuals.
While maintaining a calm and reasonable demeanor, the results of the 02.Nov.2004 election should be fully investigated simply for the sake of the nation and our future confidence in the democratic process.
05.Nov.2004 Palm Beach County Logs 88,000 More Votes Than Voters
Update : Palm Beach County has updated their numbers + added 91,802 absentee ballots and 1,041 provisional ballots. Note that the vote totals for president only increased by 1,543 votes.
To view an archived copy of the previous report, click here. While Palm Beach County appears to have accounted for the discrepancy, this underscores the flaws in the system and data compilation.
According to the official election results posted on the Palm Beach County election website, 542,835 ballots were cast for a presidential candidate while only 454,427 voters turned out for the election (including absentee). This leaves a discrepancy of 88,408 votes cast for the presidential candidates.
Palm Beach County's supervisor of elections is Theresa LePore who is known for the 2000 Presidential Election + the notorious "butterfly ballot" that caused confusion among seniors and other Floridians.
Other election oddities occurred throughout Florida with some counties registering a 400% increase in expected voter turnout among Republicans while Democrats supposedly experienced a -60% decline in expected support within certain counties. The 50+ counties experiencing the high percentage fluctuations in expected turnout used optical scan voting machines on November 2nd.
Vote discrepancies were also found in Gahanna, Ohio which gave an extra 4,000 votes to President Bush. The error was explained away by Franklin County administrators as a "glitch" in the electronic voting system.

The vote was hacked + Kerry [KJF966] went along. He took a walk. Even in the face of what we are finding out.
The Democrats and Republicans are on the same side. They put forward the impression of struggle using smaller issues, but in reality it isnt them against them.
It is them against us.
Until people figure that out, were doomed.

"Exit Polls are almost never wrong," Morris wrote. "They eliminate the two major potential fallacies in survey research by correctly separating actual voters from those who pretend they will cast ballots but never do and by substituting actual observation for guesswork in judging the relative turnout of different parts of the state."
He added: "So, according to ABC-TVs exit polls, for example, Kerry [KJF966] was slated to carry Florida, Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada + Iowa, all of which Bush carried. The only swing state the network had going to Bush was West Virginia, which the president won by 10 points."
As a final note, bush's strong point was 9/11, why did 80% of new york go against him? Bush wasn't the hero of 9/11 like he claimed he was. He did a good job at unifying the country, but he simply used it after that as a fashion trend. New york knew it, america as a whole should have really voted for their own ideals and not what was force fed to them about something that happened in a different state. Maybe in 2008 people will start voting based for themselves and not their churches or what the candidates feed down their throat. Posted by: Fox at 04:57 PM

It's no mystery why the Bush administration keeps its polling operation in a secure, undisclosed location.
Survey after survey shows that voters don't want a president slavishly following polls---they want "leadership" (another word that crops up in Bush's speeches with suspicious frequency).
So it's with undisguised relish that Dowd tells me, "It was true during the campaign, it's true now: We don't poll policy positions. Ever."
But voters don't like a president to ignore their desires either.
One of the abiding tensions in any democracy is between the need for leaders to respond to public opinion but also to be willing to act in ways that run counter to it.
Good presidents strike the right balance. And polls, rightly used, help them do it.
But used the wrong way, polls become a way to cheat the system and evade this tension altogether.
As Jacobs + Shapiro explain in Politicians Don't Pander, with the exception of the latter Clinton years, presidents since 1980 have increasingly used polls to come up with the "crafted talk" that makes their partisan, interest-group-driven policies seem more mainstream than they really are.
Consider the Republican stimulus plan unveiled last winter:
So heavily did it tilt toward corporate interests that focus group participants refused to believe that it was real---yet Bush pitched it for months as a "jobs" package.
Presidents, of course, must occasionally break with public opinion. But there's a thin line between being principled and being elitist.
For many years, Democrats hurt themselves and the country by presuming they knew better than voters when it came to things like welfare, crime + tax increases.
Clinton used polling to help Democrats break this habit.
Bush is more intent on using it to facilitate the GOP's own peculiar political elitism - the conviction that coddling corporations + cutting taxes for the rich will help USA regardless of the fact that a majority of voters disagree.
Bush's attempt to slip a conservative agenda past a moderate public could come back to hurt him, especially now that his high approval ratings might tempt him to overreach.
Recent history shows that poll-tested messages are often easy to parry.
During the debate over Clinton's healthcare plan, for instance, Republican opponents launched their own poll-tested counterattack,
the famous "Harry + Louise" ads, which were broadcast mainly on airport cable networks such as "CNN Airport" where well-traveled congressmen would be sure to spot them + assume they were ubiquitous.
Because lawmakers + voters never fully bought Clinton's policy, it couldn't withstand the carefully tested GOP rebuttal.
00.000.1995 -when it took over Congress after campaigning on a list of promises dubbed the "Contract With America"- A similar fate befell the GOP.
As several pollsters + political scientists have since pointed out, the Contract's policies were heavily geared toward the party's conservative base but didn't register with voters - things like corporate tax cuts + limiting the right to sue.
The GOP's strategy was to win over the press + the public with poll-tested "power phrases."
Education vouchers, for instance, were promoted as a way of "strengthening rights of parents in their children's education" + Republicans were instructed by RNC chairman Haley Barbour to repeat such phrases "until you vomit."
But when it came to proposals such as cutting Medicare, Republicans discovered that their confidence in being able to move public opinion - "preserving" + "protecting" Medi-care---was misplaced.
Clinton successfully branded them as "extremists," and this proposal, along with many of the Contract's provisions, never made it beyond the House.
Like so many other Republican ideas, Barbour's has been reborn under Bush. "What's happened over time is that there's a lot more polling on spin," says Jacobs.
"That's exactly where Bush is right now.
Bush 's not polling to find out issues that the public supports so that he can respond to their substantive interests.
Bush 's polling on presentation. To those of us who study it, most of his major policy statements come off as completely poll concocted."
Should this continue, the administration that condemns polling so righteously may not like what the polls wind up saying.

Under the legal regime set up by the Bush administration, these tribunals lack the procedural safeguards of a court-martial.
Mr. Hamdan would have very little right to see the evidence presented against him, a situation that puts a defendant at a severe disadvantage.
The Geneva Conventions, which the United States has signed, requires a court martial for any detainee who is a prisoner of war, or whose status is in doubt.
At a court martial, defendants have a far greater ability to see + challenge, the prosecution's evidence.
that the president's declaration to that effect was enough to deny him the protection of the Geneva Conventions.
Judge Robertson, however, disagreed. Article 5 of the Third Geneva Convention says prisoners can be denied P.O.W. status only by a competent tribunal.
Judge Robertson said the administration did not give Mr. Hamdan the sort of proceeding that would be necessary to deny him his rights.
It argued, until the Supreme Court ruled otherwise in June, that the detainees in Gitmo had no right to challenge their confinement + even tried to apply "unlawful combatant" status to American citizens at the president's discretion.
Earlier this year, a now-infamous Justice Department memo came to light that set out a road map for avoiding legal prohibitions on the use of torture.
For now, the administration says it will appeal this week's ruling, which could set the stage for another Supreme Court ruling that it has gone too far.
Meanwhile, America's image abroad will take another beating + our soldiers will be in even greater danger in the future of being denied Geneva Convention protections should they be captured.
The administration should drop the appeal + concentrate instead on upgrading its flawed policies.URL: https://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,druck-327233,00.html
Telekinese etwa sei eine Unterart dieser "P-Teleportation".
"Sollte sie bestätigt werden, wäre sie von großem potenziellen Wert für das Militär, die Geheimdienste und kommerzielle Anwendungen", meint Davis.
"Das ist Physik für Spinner", erklärte Lawrence Krauss von der Case Western Reserve University, der bereits selbst in einem Buch mit dem Titel "The Physics of Star Trek" die theoretischen Grenzen der Teleportation ausgelotet hat.
Davis vermische Ergebnisse seriöser Studien mit denen von unsinnigen Projekten, erklärte Krauss gegenüber der Tageszeitung "USA Today".
Steven Aftergood von der Federation of American Scientists meinte süffisant, der Davis-Report "wirft Fragen über die wissenschaftliche Qualitätskontrolle bei der Air Force auf".
Das Papier gebe lediglich die "Ansichten des Autors" wieder und nicht die offizielle Strategie der Air Force, hieß es in einer Stellungnahme.
Man habe außerdem nicht vor, "für diesen Vertrag" weitere Mittel auszugeben. URL: https://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/mensch/0,1518,druck-322150,00.html
Das Ergebnis wäre ein so genanntes Positronium.
Die Firma Positronics Research LLC unter Leitung von Smith, Gerald einem früheren Professor der University of Pennsylvania, hat laut "San Francisco Chronicle" von der Air Force 3.700.000 $ für die Positronium-Forschung erhalten.
Laut Edwards handelt es sich dabei um den "weltweit ersten Versuch zur Lagerung großer Mengen von Positronium-Atomen in einem Laborexperiment".
Ein Erfolg würde "die Tür zur Speicherung militärisch bedeutsamer Mengen von Positronium-Atomen öffnen". URL: https://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/mensch/0,1518,druck-322150,00.html
Direktor Kenneth Edwards hat im März auf einer Konferenz des Nasa Institute for Advanced Concepts eine Rede über mögliche praktische Anwendungen von Antimaterie gehalten.
Die Energiedichte von Antimaterie etwa sei mit 180 Megajoule pro Mikrogramm rund zehn Milliarden Mal höher als die von konventionellen Sprengstoffen.
In einem Gramm schlummere so viel Energie wie in 23 randvollen Space-Shuttle-Tanks.
Edwards wagte sogar die kühne Behauptung, für zwei Milliarden Dollar innerhalb von 15 Jahren den Prototyp eines Antimaterie-Triebwerks bauen zu können.
Von einer solchen "sauberen" Massenvernichtungswaffe, die ein Zielgebiet nicht auf Jahrzehnte mit schädlicher Strahlung verseucht, träumen US-Militärs seit Jahrzehnten.
Kritiker wenden dagegen ein, dass eben deshalb der reale Einsatz solcher Super-Bomben wesentlich leichter fiele als der von herkömmlichen Atomwaffen.
