2008 Election Fraud News

2008 PRIMARY ELECTION FRAUD 

Updates on 1/17: Do the Candidates Even Matter? 

Clear Evidence of Widespread Voting Fraud in New Hampshire (Prison Planet 1/9/08)

Best round-up of the stories I’ve heard so far, with the town of Sutton coming in first, where all 31 of Ron Paul’s votes were eliminated (among unknown other ‘human errors’) 

BradBlog’s coverage of the NH primary results vs polls (1/8/08)   

Hand Recounts Show Paul Averaged 15% (RonPaulWarRoom 1/9/08)

A word of caution: these are partial recounts, in some, not all counties.  It’s obvious there’s foul play here (which we knew before the votes were cast); however this does not necessarily mean that Paul would have received 15% overall and/or placed 3rd.  New Hampshire looks like a good place to spend some of his supporters’ donations – Live Free or Die!

Moonshine America: The Collapse of the ‘Trust Me’ Model (BlackBox Voting)

EXCERPT: “In 2007, Black Box Voting embarked on a year-long investigative series examining elections in what we call the Moonshine territories – reputedly the most corrupt local governments in America. What we found has staggering implications for the design of American election systems as a whole. Our current system only works if we trust every human link in the chain. In this report we will knock the concept of trust-based elections out the window.What follows begins with our examination of the “Trust Me” election model as it is implemented in locations like Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. What we found in these locations quickly unravels into an indictment of faith-based elections in all 50 states. The very core of the voting machine controversy is not paper trails or spot check procedures. The essence of whether an election system can be trusted is whether it allows the owners of the government, The People, to view the counting and the chain of custody. Votes counted in secret, and secret chain of custody can never work unless we change human nature itself.”

Romney’s grandparents were illegal immigrants from Mexico (Think Progress 12/24/07)

Romney’s Pursuit of Tyrannical Power – Literally (Common Dreams 12/23/07)

The Boston Globe presented a 12 question survey on executive power to the candidates

EXCERPT: “All of the leading Democrats — Edwards, Dodd, Biden, Clinton, Richardson and Obama — submitted responses, as did Mitt Romney, John McCain and Ron Paul. Refusing to respond to the questions were — revealingly — Giuliani, Thompson and Huckabee. Significantly, if not surprisingly, all of the candidates who did respond, with the exception of Romney, repudiated most of the key doctrines of the Bush/Cheney/Addington/Yoo theories of executive omnipotence… But by far the most extraordinary answers come from Mitt Romney. Romney’s responses — not to some of the questions but to every single one of them — are beyond disturbing. The powers he claims the President possesses are definitively — literally — tyrannical, unrecognizable in the pre-2001 American system of government and, in some meaningful ways, even beyond what the Bush/Cheney cadre of authoritarian legal theorists have claimed.”

McCain: OK to Stay in Iraq a Hundred or a Million Years (Mother Jones 1/3/08)

The United States military could stay in Iraq for “maybe a hundred years” and that “would be fine with me,” John McCain told two hundred or so people at a town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire, on Thursday evening. Toward the end of this session, which was being held shortly before the Iowa caucuses were to start, McCain was confronted by Dave Tiffany, who calls himself a “full-time antiwar activist.” In a heated exchange, Tiffany told McCain that he had looked at McCain’s campaign website and had found no indication of how long McCain was willing to keep U.S. troops in Iraq. Arguing that George W. Bush’s escalation of troops has led to a decline in U.S. casualties, McCain noted that the United States still maintains troops in South Korea and Japan. He said he had no objection to U.S. soldiers staying in Iraq for decades, “as long as Americans are not being injured, harmed or killed.”

After the event ended, I asked McCain about his “hundred years” comment, and he reaffirmed the remark, excitedly declaring that U.S. troops could be in Iraq for “a thousand years” or “a million years,” as far as he was concerned. The key matter, he explained, was whether they were being killed or not: “It’s not American presence; it’s American casualties.” U.S. troops, he continued, are stationed in South Korea, Japan, Europe, Bosnia, and elsewhere as part of a “generally accepted policy of America’s multilateralism.” There’s nothing wrong with Iraq being part of that policy, providing the government in Baghdad does not object.

Newsflash McCain, the Iraqi citizens and their parliament tell us every day that they don’t ‘like’ being occupied.

The Lawless Surveillance State (Salon)

EXCERPT: “There are several vital points raised by the new revelations in The New York Times that “the N.S.A.’s reliance on telecommunications companies is broader and deeper than ever before” and includes both pre-9/11 efforts to tap without warrants into the nation’s domestic communications network as well as the collection of vast telephone records of American citizens in the name of the War on Drugs. The Executive Branch and the largest telecommunications companies work in virtually complete secrecy — with no oversight and no notion of legal limits — to spy on Americans, on our own soil, at will.” 

Nearly 1,300 words into Sunday’s New York Times article revealing new details of the National Security Agency’s domestic eavesdropping program, the lawyer for an AT&T engineer alleges that “within two weeks of taking office, the Bush administration was planning a comprehensive effort of spying on Americans’ phone usage.” (Raw Story)

Domestic Spying, Inc (CorpWatch)

EXCERPT: “A new intelligence institution to be inaugurated soon by the Bush administration will allow government spying agencies to conduct broad surveillance and reconnaissance inside the United States for the first time. Under a proposal being reviewed by Congress, a National Applications Office (NAO) will be established to coordinate how the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and domestic law enforcement and rescue agencies use imagery and communications intelligence picked up by U.S. spy satellites. If the plan goes forward, the NAO will create the legal mechanism for an unprecedented degree of domestic intelligence gathering that would make the U.S. one of the world’s most closely monitored nations. Until now, domestic use of electronic intelligence from spy satellites was limited to scientific agencies with no responsibility for national security or law enforcement.  
 
The intelligence-sharing system to be managed by the NAO will rely heavily on private contractors including Boeing, BAE Systems, L-3 Communications and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). These companies already provide technology and personnel to U.S. agencies involved in foreign intelligence, and the NAO greatly expands their markets. Indeed, at an intelligence conference in San Antonio, Texas, last month, the titans of the industry were actively lobbying intelligence officials to buy products specifically designed for domestic surveillance.”

EXCERPT: “Former JAG officers say the regulation would end the uniformed lawyers’ role as a check on presidential power because politically appointed lawyers could block the promotion of JAGs who they believe would speak up if they think a White House policy is illegal…Through the past several years, the administration has repeatedly proposed changes that would impose greater control over the JAGs. Each previous proposal has died in the Pentagon or Congress. The new proposal goes further than anything the administration has pushed before because it would affect all military lawyers, not just the top JAG for each service.”

EXCERPT: “Choosing the best presidential candidate among the 2008 contenders is a tough job. Picking the worst is easy. Rudy Giuliani is the guy you’d get if you put George Bush and Dick Cheney into a wine press and squeezed out their pure combined essence: unbounded arrogance and self-righteousness, a chip on his shoulder the size of a redwood, a studied contempt for anybody’s opinion but his own, a vindictive streak a mile wide, and a devotion to secrecy and executive power unmatched in presidential history.

EXCERPT: “When he said that as a boy he “saw” his father march with the civil rights leader Martin Luther King — a claim debunked yesterday — Mr Romney now says that he used the word “saw” as a figure of speech. Mr Romney said: “If you look at the literature, if you look at the dictionary, the term ‘saw’ includes ‘being aware of’ in the sense I’ve described. I did not see it with my own eyes, but I saw him in the sense of being aware of his participation in that great [civil rights] effort.”… He added that the statement that he “saw” his father march was akin to him stating, “I saw my dad become president of American Motors”. He told reporters: “I wasn’t there when he became president [of GM].”
