In her Georgia primary election, Cynthia McKinney has been forced into a run off election against a political unknown, a relative flea/cockroach, Hank Johnson. It has been confirmed that McKinney votes were stolen by Diebold machines that flipped her votes over to Johnson. Johnson�s sole qualification is that he is not McKinney. That�s enough for the powerful forces aligned against her.

It is no surprise that McKinney, an outspoken and vocal critic of the Bush administration, as well as someone despised by the corrupt leadership of the Democratic Party, is again facing the prospect of being removed by dirty tricks and criminal means. She was similarly removed in the midterm primary of 2002, when Bush Republicans, and the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), pulled out all the stops to replace McKinney with pro-war/pro-Israel/Republican-in-hiding candidate Denise Majette. (With Hank Johnson, here we go again.) McKinney is one of the only members of Congress to dare attempt an official inquiry into 9/11. McKinney was recently set up and scandalized in the halls of Congress, ridiculously accused of assaulting the security guard who harassed her. Few, if any, Democrats have stood by her side.

If McKinney does not prevail, it comes at another opportune moment for the Bush administration (and the Israeli lobby), and the Democratic leadership, all hell bent on removing any resistance to a full-scale war in the Middle East and beyond; resistance to the final destruction of US democracy.

For the na�ve and deeply insane who continue to dream about �taking back America in November,� get this through your thick skulls: there will be no vote. There has been no �election� since 2000. There will not be one now, or possibly ever.

The American vote count is controlled by four corporations, Diebold, ESS, Sequoia, and SAIC. All four are hard-wired into the neocon/Bush power structure.

The machines control the vote. BushCo. controls the machines. Repeat this over and over.

Until that changes, there is nothing more to say. You had better do something else.
