Hope For the Best – And Prepare For the Worst

Hope For the Best – And Prepare For the Worst

My wife and I watched the HBO documentary last night on DieBold electronic voting machines with clenched teeth and tears in our eyes. These machines are as crooked as a dog’s hind leg – and no one appears to care.

The documentary ended on a particularly poignant note. After gaining the cooperation of a Florida polling official to test his machines, a simple memory card which is used to hold tabulated votes, (infected with malicious software) corrupted and skewed the results of a test election, leaving no telltale signs of tampering. And with no paper trail, the crime was complete.

The cooperating poll worker, (a man who appeared to be in his late 50s) who had insisted that this sort of ‘hack’ was “impossible,” was reduced to tears, as the implications of what he had just witnessed, and what this meant for our democracy, sunk into his mind. Seeing this man crying for our democracy was an especially poignant moment that most Americans appear to fail to grasp.

What does this have to do with 9/11?

We all know the stakes. Our nation has spent billions to insert heavily, and apparently intentionally, compromised voting machines into our system. Could they get away with stealing another election?

The real "state of denial": 9/11 red herrings as bipartisan election-year volleyball

With US mid-term elections one month away, it is not surprising to find
Washington’s elite criminal factions (neocon and neoliberal) engaged in
a new game of political chicken over 9/11 red herrings. The appearance of
bickering hides the fact that operatives of both factions are lying. Both
sides are cynically continuing the massive bipartisan cover-up of 9/11 and
the “war on terrorism."

Undeniable fact: all of Washington “knew” about 9/11

It is an amply documented fact -- no news whatsoever -- that the Bush
administration had absolute foreknowledge of 9/11, and deliberately
ignored warnings received within the US and from officials and
intelligence agencies outside the US.

As written by Michel Chossudovsky, “the foreknowledge issue itself is a
red herring, a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order
to divert attention from the original issue . . . Of course the Bush
