Hope for Change or Change Your Hopes? - by Michael Collins

(With the Presidential election on the horizon, I asked Michael Collins, who is a serious student of the Fraudulent elections of the past few years, to pen a short piece for visitors of 911blogger, summarizing the dangers of Election Fraud... not "Voter Fraud"... Election Fraud. -rep.)

Hope for Change or Change Your Hopes?

Elections and Voting in a Dissociated State

by Michael Collins, 10.31.2008

"Some say" that no matter who gets elected we're still going to be in Iraq, the bailout will continue, and there will be no drawdown of the bloated budgets, particularly the military, that feed the defense contractors their daily ration. We're not getting national health, rather an electronic exchange and so forth down "the middle of the road" of national leadership.

Here's some news from the election fraud segment of our precipitous decline thanks to greed and avarice, not to mention stupidity, on the part of the ruling elite. Everyone of the problems mentioned could be solved without much cost in a few months. Everybody in power knows that and only a few officials act to serve citizens. They're rarely rewarded and frequently punished and marginalized for their service.

The Elements of Election Fraud

1) To begin with, it's a fraudulent election when the format of the campaign and the filters at the corporate media dictate that

There shall be no serious issues discussed and

if they are, it won't be seriously.

We've got Rev. Wright, Palin's pregnant daughter, too old, too young, and "The Clinton" (the name for the two combined). I'm sure that these must have some import somewhere, but they just occupy space while the real issues go unmentioned, almost: looming eco catastrophes and what to do about them; how did those 1,000,000 people die in Iraq (soldiers + Iraqi civilians); looting of the treasury by failed financial institutions; inadequate health care. The issues that dare not speak their name don't much and we're stuck with pabulum for enquiring minds.

That's the real fraud.

2) With regard to the sanctity of your vote, forget about it. In principle, electronic voting "disappears" your vote and does with it as it chooses. Machines can give you a paper receipt, in the case of touch screens, or you can use a paper form and run it through an optical scan reader and you get the same result - a vote recorded in electronic memory that only the Republican manufacturers can legally access (for "competitive reasons'). These right wing vendors also run tabulation and technical assistance. We have completely outsourced elections. What can they mean, ultimately?

To compound things, the security problems with the machines continue. It's almost piling on to mention the latest but here are a few articles.

3) Ultimately election fraud is a race crime. Since the end of the Reconstruction era, various groups in the Deep South crafted voting laws that rapidly disenfranchised black citizens. "The Redeemers" and the "Ku Klux Klan" pioneered the "literacy test," the removal of the ability to vote due to a felony conviction, obtuse registration practices, and charges for voting ("poll taxes"). These flourished in the south and have spread across the land. Today 2.5 million ex felons, the ones who have paid their debt, are permanently barred from voting. There are a variety of methods of intimidating poor people. "Caging" identifies voters who have moved and sets up challenges to their voting status. These are targeted voters in poor neighborhoods who can be chased off easier than your average Volvo owner. Registration list "cleansing" also removes poor and minority voters by creating criteria that result in removal.

4) In 2004, the exit polls conformed to the final vote count to show a 51-48 Bush victory. The pundits failed to not that the Bush "victory" occurred in the big cities, 500,000 or greater population. The red rural base that was the basis of this "red versus blue" election dropped like a rock from 23% of the vote in 2000 to 16% in 2004. Bush actually gained 4.0 million new votes in the big cities to compensate for this rural segment loss. We all know how beloved Bush is in U.S. big cities, especially after four years of neglect and derision. The exit polls would have us believe that Bush was the first president to lose his base big, rural voters, while making it up and winning it in hostile territory, the big cities. But ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC, and the Associated Press, proprietors of the exit poll operation know best (even if they fail to report on it).

5) PsyOps. There are two major wholesale psyops operating in this election.

The first is the "voter fraud" fantasy. Voter fraud refers to individual voters or groups voting without being registered or voting multiple times. The Republicans would have us believe it's an epidemic crime. Illegal aliens risk their status here through the conspicuous act of voting illegally, they argue. The poor, so easily intimidated by the accusers when they wrongfully challenge them at the polls, are supposedly coming out in droves. Non existent voters are being registered. These are all contrived pathetic lie. Here is what the Gonzales Department of justice did when they tried to catch every case of voter fraud for a three year period - 38 prosecutions - 24 convictions.

The phenomenon barely exists, yet the federal government spends tens of millions of dollars trying to stop these 8 voters a year, on average, from committing fraud. It's a testimony to the absurdity of our government that they would even do this. The states mimic the federal government and use the fiction of voter fraud to enact highly restrictive registration and voter identification programs.

Here's the truth about voter fraud in 3 or so pages. It's from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University. Mail it to your local media and anyone else you can think of. It will really bother them if they read it. They won't stop the psyops but their chip may malfunction ;) The Truth About Voter Fraud (outstanding resource).

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?

thank you Mr. Collins

for this article and these links. Thanks Rep for getting this- can you add Digg and Reddit links? Election fraud gets good rankings on Digg sometimes


Thank you

It's a pleasure to post here. The 'blogmaster' asked me for an original contribution. I was so flattered that I complied immediately. The questions about 911 and corrective actions required are clearly issues that belong at the front of the presidential campaign. But they're not, which is telling. "A Pretext for War" was all a rational elite and media would need to jump in.

911Blogger.com keeps these questions alive in print as do the 911 activists and the 70% of U.S. citizens who want a new investigation.

Federal Judge Compels GOP IT Guru Mike Connell To Give Depo...


The Republican IT guru, recently described as a "high tech Forrest Gump" for his proclivity to be "at the scene" of so many troubling elections since 2000, and even at the heart of the "lost" White House email scandal, has been ordered by a federal judge to appear for an under-oath deposition next Monday in Ohio...

Democracy Is On Its Way Home...

The Democracy of America Is On It's Way Home!
by Sharon Jenson

98% of reason is unconscious. The Democratic Party has always been honest enough to believe that if you present the facts, the American public will reasonably, logically see the sense in their ideals. The Republican party does not waste time presenting honest fact to the American public. They instead use simplified sound bytes and verbiage that appeal to and can be easily recognized by simple and sometimes vacant minds. Therefore, the American public must work harder to concentrate on logic and ignore their natural tendency to be somewhat lazy. They must remember reason and logic are unconscious. Corporations have researched this theory for years with help from psychological professors who have studied the brain and clever advertising. Corporations have invested in various levels of expertise and adjusted their marketing strategies accordingly. It is also important to note that six major media networks are owned by private corporations now and their reporting may be skewed.

Keep digging, Ms. Jenson, you're not there yet.

You seem to think that the Democratic Party and Sen. Obama are the salvation of America.

The Democratic Party elite are just as corrupt as the Republican elite and many of Sen. Obama's advisers are from the Council on Foreign Relations, his wife sits on the board of the Chicago CFR.

As others have pointed out, the Democrats just have a different marketing campaign which is more appealing to many right now.

What is your take on the events of 9/11/01?

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.


please confine long posts like that to your blog. Thanks.

Will This Election Be Stolen?

by Mark Crispin Miller - Nov.1, 2008

"...While both sides always used such tactics, in this century it is the GOP that's done most to rig the vote (with little outcry from the Democrats). In 2000, thousands of Floridians were purged illegally from the voter rolls before Election Day, according to the sworn testimony of George Bruder, a vice president of Database Technologies, before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. The vote count in Miami-Dade County was shut down by a disturbance variously referred to as a "Brooks Brothers riot" or "bourgeois riot," where several people were pushed and shoved by staffers working for congressional Republicans.

Four years later, in Ohio, ballots were altered or destroyed on a massive scale, making Mr. Bush's win there questionable, says researcher Richard Hayes Phillips. (Officially, Bush won the state by some 118,000 votes.) The damage came to light through a three-year audit led by Mr. Phillips of ballots from selected precincts in 18 Ohio counties (the research is available in his book, "Witness to a Crime").

Recently, Acorn's alleged "unlawful votes" have caused a major stir. Although resonantly charged with "voter fraud," the group has actually been accused of voter-registration fraud -- i.e., the entry of false information on voter-registration forms. In Acorn's case, the crime was perpetrated by volunteers who, probably for mercenary reasons, filled out the forms with bogus names like Mickey Mouse. Acorn itself discovered the suspicious forms and turned them in to the authorities.

Meanwhile, the very party that is demonizing Acorn has now disenfranchised countless voters nationwide, through a dizzying range of tactics. Voters have been stricken from the rolls through purges nationwide, carried out since 2004 at the behest of the Department of Justice. (Courtrooms throughout New York State are crammed with people trying to reclaim their right to vote.) Others have been dropped from the electronic voter rolls, as USA Today began reporting months ago..."
