On November 7,
2006, American citizens will be engaged in an exhausting host of insane
behaviors known as voting, despite the fact that the corporations and criminal
operatives that have pre-scripted and stolen every election since 2000 for the
George W. Bush machine remain untouched. Welcome back
to hell, again.
The march of Bush�s machines

corporations: Diebold, ESS, Sequoia,

of every election is controlled and manipulated, by these corporations, with
help from corrupt politicians and officials, the corporate media and, lest
anyone forget, the US Supreme Court.

that installed Bush, and kept his apparatus in power, have not only remain
untouched, they have become more firmly entrenched, the noise and complaints
about accountability notwithstanding Their voting systems are being sold all
over the world, to rig elections in every country.
The smug George W.
Bush, as he did prior to the 2000, 2002 and 2004 election thefts, has begun
gloating again. He and Karl Rove are confident that their criminal
empire will not be
displaced, barring the total elimination of the apparatus in place, or an
unlikely reversal of course, agreed upon by the New World Order�s highest
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 and expecting a different result.
And Americans still
expect different results, every two years. In a current radio commercial on Air
America Radio, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (co-host of Air America�s �Ring of Fire�
program), correctly blasts away at the four Republican-connected corporations
that stole the 2004 election, and still control every aspect of the American
election count. To prevent the 2008 election from being stolen, Kennedy

that used well-documented, targeted criminal means to disenfranchise it in
every election since 2000. Not even after the genocidal crimes committed in
the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita have been enough to arouse outrage,
even as New Orleans remains dead and unrebuilt, its African-American
neighborhoods reduced to that of a Third World state. New Orleans� Ninth Ward
remains a wasteland of poverty and decay, still ignored by the federal
government, held together only by courageous local activists who have taken it
upon themselves and each other to stay alive.
Stupidity and denial
college educated Americans today lack critical
thinking. The top students of America�s top universities are failing
in basic civics. Think where this leaves the rest of the country.
Beyond this mass
ignorance, there is an ever-greater obstacle: denial. Denial that allows even
those who grasp the truth to still turn away, and still do nothing about the
hijacking and gutting of their country from right under their noses.
course into oblivion, under
forces steal a fourth consecutive US election, and successfully maintain a
Republican stranglehold on Congress, nothing changes. America is dead.
America is still
dead if the equally criminal and equally complicit Democrats, beholden to the
same corporate elites, manage to grab some congressional seats (or find a way
to make the voting machine technology work for their side), for their
neoliberal war machine.
neoliberal US government could be even worse. The fascism will go down the
throats of dumbed-down America that much easier, as smoothly as the speeches of
Barack Obama. Obama, who fully backed Bush�s decision to invade Iraq (to topple
�bad� Saddam Hussein), and is a proponent of attacks on Iran and
Pakistan, as well as an even more aggressive �war on terrorism,� is being
sold around the country as a savior.
Democratic Party line is crystallized in this talking-point memo from Hillary
�America is less
secure because Republicans have lost control of national security -- they have
failed to stop North Korea�s aggressive pursuit of nuclear weapons, and they
stubbornly stay the course in Iraq, a country that has never had nuclear
weapons. New leadership is needed to regain control over national security and
change the course in Iraq so that we can keep America safe from its real threats.�
Whether or not the
Democrats regain seats, count on the likes of Zbigniew Brzezinski and the
neoliberal faction to make inroads during Bush�s lame duck years. Count on such
horrors as multinational UN military operations into such targets as oil-rich Darfur, using similar pretexts as the Clinton era "humanitarian
intervention" into Bosnia and Kosovo. The chances of a more overtly
hostile policy on Korea also increase, if the hawkish policies of William Perry
faction, count on the United States continuing, and even escalating, its �war
on terrorism� and continue its sequential military conquests and resource wars,
as Peak Oil makes itself even more rudely felt (once temporary artificial
controls are removed, post-election). America will go off the cliff with a dull

in its terror and propaganda pipeline. But there is one good reason why no �big
one� on US soil has taken place in years, and no �October surprise� was
necessary to steal away this election: the shock effect of 9/11/01 remains so
effective, a new one has not been necessary.
myth is embedded deeply into minds of Americans across the social strata. At a
major fall 2006 investment conference, the majority of attendees surveyed, all
well-heeled Wall Street professionals, supported the US invasion and conquest
of Iraq -- despite the fact that the intelligence was faulty or falsified --
while questioning the execution of the policy.
most of those surveyed favored the use of torture. Alberto Gonzales and his
murder and torture agenda really does reflect the values of some people in this
country. Fear of �terrorism� in America, and the willing embrace of a police
state, is greater than ever.
Rank and file
Americans may dislike or even despise Bush for a variety of reasons, and have
vague, nagging ill-defined bad gut feelings about Iraq (but not the toppling of
Saddam Hussein). Corruption is so commonplace, that CNN airs a regular program
But when it comes
to the essence of the �war on terrorism,� America has completely surrendered
and abdicated to the Empire�s criminals, who continue to turn to the
�terrorism� card to garner votes. Even Bush�s approval rating still rises every
time his disinformation offices evoke 9/11 and �terrorism.�
masses, ignorant before 9/11, were terminally dumbed by the 9/11 attack, locked
into a perpetual state of fear; eternal prisoners to the most insidious red
herring in history. The 2006 election revolves around �security,� and which
faction does a better job �making America safer�; which side does a better job
cementing fascism into place.

stage for a stolen
Once the US
election is successfully manipulated, the next big election will take place in
December in Venezuela. This election will not only decide the fate of Venezuela
and the hemisphere, but the control of the world�s energy supplies, and the
resource lifeline of the United States.
In a blatant
attempt at manipulation ahead of the December election in Venezuela, as part of
the larger plan to topple and undermine the presidency of Hugo Chavez, the
insidious Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States has now begun "investigating"
Venezuelan connections to Sequoia Voting Systems.
The twists and
turns of this story are tracked in this forum: Who
Actually Owns Sequoia? According to reports, Sequoia was acquired by
Smartmatic, which was chosen by Venezuela to replace its ESS voting
machines in 2004. The Chavez administration has fought to prevent the hacking
of the Venezuelan election by the US (thus, the perceived threat, and the
action by the Committee on Foreign Investments).
It is no surprise
that the US government is seeking to have it both ways. It wants to rig
elections electronically, but only if its own operatives are in charge. If they
are not, they will wail to the heavens about corruption and �security threats.�
Mainstream US news
coverage has attempted to plant the idea that Chavez is "trying to steal
US elections." The fact is Chavez is trying to stop the Venezuelan
election from being stolen.
One has to wonder
why the Chavez administration has agreed to using electronic systems at all. No
electronic voting system is safe. Only paper is, and only if supported by
ethical officials and poll workers (unlikely) and overseen by enlightened and
ethical administrations (extremely unlikely), in places devoid of corruption
and interference (nowhere to be found).
Meanwhile, American vote-theft corporations
continue to peddle electronic systems throughout Latin America and the
developing world. Oh, the wonders of technology.
