In an email last week, I sought to connect the dots between the politicized Department of Justice, the theft of American elections and the railroading of a former Democrat Governor of Alabama who was too tough for the Republicans so they stole his election and locked him away.
~Please go back and watch this YouTube video of Siegelman describing the stolen election if you haven't already- it's chilling: Siegelman describes the theft of 2002 election.
That email was entitled, First They Came, for obvious reasons just made perhaps more poignant. One can't say for sure, but certainly something to think about as this unfolds. It's hard, given what passes for journalism, to think that there may be more going on than what is being reported. But, hey, why do any investigative journalism when the public interest has lost all meaning to the media and besides, you have prostitution for your headlines. (see Salacious Sex Raises TV Ratings: Are We Being HOOKERed?)
You can frame a guy like Don Siegelman when you control the reigns of power-- just about all the power. Were they really made so suspicious by Eliot Spitzer's moving a few thousand dollars around (how much money could we be talking about that would have set off alarms?). Or is Spitzer seen as a threat to those in control of our lawless post-911 KGBesque investigatory apparatus? Go back and pay attention to Siegleman and watch how the US Attorneys scandal unfolds- which was always about controlling our elections.
Scott Horton has been connecting the dots, covering Siegelman and now Spitzer and the US Attorneys scandal. Eliminating your political opposition is bad enough. But seizing ultimate lock down control by taking over the process by which we are supposed to elect that opposition raises the stakes to a new level.
This is not about whether you liked our NY Governor or think he deserved what he got: It's not really about him. It's about us. Indeed one might surmise that he was doing something right if he turns out to be a target for political reasons.
The piece "First they came..." shows that the inactivity of those who didn't speak out as the Nazis purged their chosen targets, group after group, resulted in there being no one left to protect them, when the Nazis came for them. It's time to resist. Take initiative and speak out now- time's running out.
Stolen elections are part of a larger plan and computerized elections are part of that plan. Media consolidation is another essential piece of the plan. This is what corporatism, otherwise known as fascism, looks like. This is the time to speak out!
Here are some excerpts from but a few important articles:
Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who gained national prominence relentlessly pursuing Wall Street wrongdoing, has been caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a high-priced prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, according to a law enforcement official and a person briefed on the investigation.- Advertisement -On the other hand, ABC News this evening offers a starkly different account of how the investigation got launched. According to ABC, the whole investigation of the prostitution ring itself was triggered by an investigation of Spitzer.
The wiretap captured a man identified as Client 9 on a telephone call confirming plans to have a woman travel from New York to Washington, where he had reserved a hotel room, according to an affidavit filed in federal court in Manhattan. The person briefed on the case and the law enforcement official identified Mr. Spitzer as Client 9.
Mr. Spitzer, a first term Democrat, today made a brief public appearance during which he apologized for his behavior, and described it as a "private matter." He did not address his political future. "I have acted in a way that violates my obligation to my family and violates my or any sense of right or wrong," said Mr. Spitzer, who appeared with his wife Silda at his Manhattan office. "I apologize first and most importantly to my family. I apologize to the public to whom I promised better."
The federal investigation of a New York prostitution ring was triggered by Gov. Eliot Spitzer's suspicious money transfers, initially leading agents to believe Spitzer was hiding bribes, according to federal officials. It was only months later that the IRS and the FBI determined that Spitzer wasn't hiding bribes but payments to a company called QAT, what prosecutors say is a prostitution operation operating under the name of the Emperors Club.
