An open memo to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted re: 12th District special congressional election
Secretary of State Jon Husted: Ohio has a long and unfortunate history of election irregularities. In recent years millions of Ohio citizens have been purged from the voter rolls. Large numbers of electronic voting machines have yielded dubious results that indicate manipulation and hacking. In light of this, a number of serious issues have arisen surrounding this year's special election in the 12th Congressional District.
Are the Supremes About to Give Trump a Second Term?
The nine "Justices" have just heard oral arguments in an Ohio voter registration case. If their decision goes with Secretary of State Jon Husted, it would mean Republicans like him throughout the United States will be able to scrub from the voter rolls millions of citizens merely because they are suspected of wishing to vote Democrat.
It Doesn't Take a Russian to Hack an American Election
Attorney-General Jeff Sessions has confirmed the Russians hacked into as many as 39 state data bases, and did all they could to affect the electronic vote count that put Donald Trump in the White House. But Americans could have done it much easier. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach set in motion a Jim Crow/Crosscheck purge of hundreds of thousands of mostly black, Hispanic and Asian-Amrican citizens prior to the election

Global Hackers & the Russians Have Made Hand-Counted Paper Ballots an Issue of Urgent National Security
We have no evidence at this point that the Russians, or global hackers, hacked our electronic voting machines to put Donald Trump in the White House. But we are 100% certain our electronic voting machines have been hacked by many many others, and could be in the future by virtually anybody with entry-level computing capabilities. As the New York Times and others have reported, cyberattacks have now become an integral part
Trump Is Our Imperial Vulture Come Home to Roost -- We Must Repent
Are we, as modern Americans, now being called to pay for the blood drawn and the pain imposed by our imperial armies? And for all the wealth and comfort and dignity unjustly stolen from innocent peoples around the world? As we squirm and mourn and march and organize, we might keep in mind the image of Donald Trump as imperial payback.

Trump's Big Lie About 3 Million "Alien Voters" Cuts Far Deeper Than You Think
When it comes to undermining democracy in the US, Trump is once again proving that the best defense is a total attack.
by claiming so many non-citizens voted more than once, Trump re-loads America's Jim Crow lynch laws against Black people voting. Based on these assertions, we can expect more and more aggressive attacks by the administration against the rights of non-whites and non-millionaires to a fair and honest ballot.

Did the GOP Strip & Flip the 2016 Selection?
familiar signs that the election was stripped and flipped. These indicators include the realities of pre- and post-election polling; the massive stripping of primarily black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters from computer generated registration rolls

Trump's Racist "Rigged Election" Attack Is as Old as America
If we're to have meaningful elections in the future, they must be conducted on paper ballots that are held at their precincts in transparent containers that do not move. Those ballots must be counted in public, by hand. Voter registration should be open automatically to all citizens, with registration rolls open to the public and easily monitored.
Will GOP Swing State Governors Strip & Flip Donald Trump Into the White House?
As the Democratic Convention opens in Philadelphia, there's just one one clear message that matters from the Republicans: Donald Trump will be within 10 points of Hillary Clinton in the fall election. Thus, unless the Democrats do something about the issue of election protection, it will be within the power of key GOP swing state governors to give Donald Trump the presidency.

Is Hillary Stealing the Nomination? Will Bernie Birth a Long-Term Movement?
If international election standards were applied to the 2016 primaries, eight states -- Georgia, Massachusetts, Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, Ohio, New York, Tennessee -- would be investigated for suspected fraudulent election results, because the actual vote deviates so greatly from the exit polls. Also, the exit polls indicated that Sanders won in Illinois, Massachusetts and Missouri.

Is the 2016 Election Already Being Stripped & Flipped?
"Flipping" is related to electronic voting machines, on which the vast majority of Americans will vote this fall. Nearly all these machines were bought with money from the 2002 Help America Vote Act, which came after the theft of the 2000 presidential election. Virtually all these machines are 10 years old or more, and can easily be hacked.
Official Vote Tally on Ohio's Pot Issue Deemed "Statistically Impossible"
The "stolen election" controversy over this month's officially defeated Ohio pot legalization referendum has gone to a new level. "The results are not only impossible but unfathomable," stated Ron Baiman, Assistant Professor of Graduate Business Administration at Benedictine University, where he teaches economics and statistics.

Scytl has all the tools it needs for election fraud
Internet voting makes election theft much easier for those with the means. A company named Scytl is at the forefront. Ballot tampering is a part of election rigging. Scytl is an expert. Voter suppression is another critical component. Scytl has an app for that.

Was Ohio's Marijuana Vote Stolen? TV Screen Shots Show Massive Number of Votes Flipping
Why is the system here rigged? It starts with the fact that Jon Husted, a right-wing Republican and future gubernatorial hopeful, ran this election while visibly and actively campaigning against Issue 3 and threatening its proponents. This merits a thorough investigation of the Buckeye State's plans for the 2016 presidential election. The state does not need a repeat of the 2004 voting debacle.

Corporate Pot Goes Down in Ohio
Official vote counts in Ohio indicate a major defeat for the nation's first corporate-sponsored marijuana legalization referendum.
But it's complicated.
And the ultimate issue is far from settled, as cannabis supporters are looking to 2016 to finally make pot legal here.

Why the Drug War Has Been a Forty-Year Lynching
The Drug War has been a 40 year lynching"-- "the corporate/GOP response to the peace C& civil rights movements.
It's used the Drug Enforcement Admin & other policing operations as a high-tech Ku Klux Klan, meant to gut America's communities of youth & color.
It has never been about suppressing drugs. Now that it's winding down, the focus on suppressing minority votes will shift even stronger to electronic election theft

U.S. Elections: Worst among established democracies
Over 1400 international election experts gathered data last year and pronounced the United States last in election integrity among long-standing democracies. On a 100-point scale, the U.S. received an integrity rating of 69.3 percent -- one notch ahead of the narco-drug state Colombia at 69.1 percent and just behind the nearly-narco-drug state of Mexico at 69.8 percent, neither country with a long-standing democracy.

Caldeira comes clean on chemtrails
Noted climate scientist Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institute for Science at Stanford has finally popped the question. In an article entitled "One Known Way to Cool the Earth" on the February 16, 2015 USA Today opinion page, Caldeira writes: "There is basically only one way known to cool the Earth rapidly." He explains the method ""is to reflect more of the sun's warming rays back to space." What will it take to do this?

How the GOP bought, rigged, stole and lynched the 2014 election
First in a series Since the Bush-Cheney-Rove theft of the 2000 election in Florida, the right of millions of American citizens to vote and have that vote counted has been under constant assault. In 2014, that systematic disenfranchisement may well have delivered the US Senate to the Republican Party. If nothing significant is done about it by 2016, we can expect the GOP to take the White House and much more.

Twelve Ways Jim Crow is Winning in 2014 and Future Elections
Jim Crow is already the big winner in this year's election. The corporate elite uses him to to gouge the planet and dominate the rest of us. So the voting rights of millions of student, elderly, black, Hispanic and other citizens are being lynched. Which may now decide control of the US Senate, many state legislatures...and the White House in 2016.

George Will confirms Nixon's Vietnam treason

The Elephant In The Room
A 10-page memo from the ODNR outlines their PR strategy to promote fracking in Ohio public land. The memo accuses "environmental-activists" of an "attempt to create public panic" on fracking risks. If reporting the facts from environmental scientists and health officials induces panic on the dangers of radioactivity and fracking -- consider it done!
Ohio's corporate junta takes a hit from the labor left
Swing state Ohio mocks the very idea of democracy. As it so often does, Ohio reflects a national trend: this one the plunge toward corporate one-party state governments very much at odds with what the public thinks and wants.
But even an apparently absolute moneyed take-over of the Buckeye Heartland has its limits when it comes to workers' rights.

Romney may have lost, but the voting system is still broken
The day-to-day political dialogue in America is frighteningly skewed by this combination of voter suppression and electronic fraud. Combining these two post-election ignored realities with a corporately biased media, and polls based on misleading demographic sampling, gives America a very dirty mirror with which to view its own "democratic" image.

Another Husted Dirty Trick in Ohio
Election fraud is anything but "de minimus" in Ohio. Ohio voters didn't choose Bush II & they probably won't choose Romney though the Secretary of State's Election Counsel, Brandi Seske, may find a way to make it appear they did.

Why Romney has already won this electronic election, unless...
Electronically, this election is over. Mitt Romney has won. The big loser is not Barack Obama, or the corporate Democratic Party. It is democracy itself.
Unless YOU act now, and are prepared to fight this out for years to come, whatever remains of American democracy is done. No nation that suffers the theft of three out of four consecutive national elections can harbor the illusion that it is run by the will of its people.
Emergency Forum: "Will the 2012 Election Be Stolen?"
This November, voters in Ohio and other swing states will vote on machines owned by friends and business associates of the Romney family.Former GOP operative and current Alabama corruption fighter Jill Simpson will join election reform/protection activists at an emergency forum to discuss the possibility of continued voter disenfranchisement and fraud in the upcoming Presidential election @a forum in NYC on Monday, October 22.

Employees of Romney family's secret bank tied to fraud, money laundering, drug cartels and the CIA
The Romney family have a secretive private equity firm called Solamere Capital Partners, with well documented ties to Romney's campaign and bundlers, along with its connection to the manufacture and distribution of voting machines. There's also a subsidiary hiring employees of a failed firm tied to a Ponzi scheme that has a long history of money laundering for Latin American drug cartels and to the Iran-Contra scandal.

Does the Romney Family Now Own Your E-Vote?
hrough a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7.
The Ohio GOP has already moved 3 ways to steal America's 2012 election
The latest flare-up in Ohio, and we can expect many more, is over early voting. Initially in Ohio, the Republican-dominated rural counties had extended early voting hours while the mostly Democratic urban counties failed to extend early voting hours beyond normal business hours Monday through Friday.

Defender of Democracy -- In Memoriam: Gore Vidal (1925-2012)
"Ayn Rand's 'philosophy' is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society.... To justify and extol human greed and egotism is to my mind not only immoral, but evil." Gore Vidal
Has America's stolen election process finally hit prime time?
A flood of articles about these realities-including coverage in the NY Times-seems to indicate the theft of our elections has finally taken a leap into the mainstream of the American mind. Whether that leads to concrete reforms before another presidential election is stolen remains to be seen. But after more than a decade of ignorance and contempt, it's about time something gets done to restore a semblance of democracy

New Court Filing Reveals How the 2004 Ohio Presidential Election Was Hacked
Court discovery has revealed a contract between OH Sec of State Ken Blackwell and the late (assassinated) Mike Connell, revealing that Connell was hired to give the White House access to the computer that adds up the county vote totals for the state of Ohio. (The official Ohio SOS computer went down after midnight on election night, and was replaced by Connell's computer, with a White House link-in.)

New court filing reveals how the 2004 Ohio presidential election was hacked

Ohio Republicans pass new Jim Crow law disenfranchising 900,000 voters
Since Ohio is one of the nation's most important swing states, and no Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio, both Senate Bill 5 and House Bill 159 are the obvious opening shots in the Republican presidential campaign.The Repubs are astute students of numbers and demographics. They understand that they can't beat Barack Obama in 2012 unless they cheat by restricting voting rights.

Corporate union busters draw first blood in Ohio
It's widely believed Kasich will next assault Ohio's pubic school system, whose funding mechanisms have been repeatedly ruled unconstitutional by state courts. Kasich is a cheerleader for private charter schools. The GOP is expected to push a voucher program that would use taxpayer money to subsidize private schools for the rich.

Fighting the 5 fascisms in Wisconsin & Ohio
The entire economic crisis now gripping the United States can be directly traced to the military budget, which exceeds the sum of what's being spent by all other nations combined.But the purpose of that deployment is to undermine national security, not to protect it. A frightened, impoverished, insecure nation is one dependent on its fascist elite.

Will Diebold steal Ted Kennedy's seat -" and the Senate?
What will matter in Massachusetts is how thoroughly election-protection advocates are able to scrutinize voter certification, access and ballot security.Billions of dollars---and much more--are riding on the outcome of this election. Those who believe it cannot or would not be stolen are simply in denial.

Diebold and the Electronic Vote: The Rig is Up
ES&S purchase of Diebold's voting machine operation is merely the tip of a toxic iceberg.Voiding the merger will do nothing to solve the REAL problem,which is an electronic-based system of voter registration & ballot counting that is potentially controlled by private corporations &contractors whose agenda is to make large profits & protect the system that guarantees them.
OOPS! We rigged the Iran/Florida-Ohio vote count AGAIN!!
Iran's Ayatollahs have just admitted that in some 50 cities there were as many as 3 million more votes cast than there were voters in the recent presidential election.
But, they say, that's not enough to change the outcome. Sound familiar?

The suspicious, disturbing death of election rigger Michael Connell
Connell's death comes at a moment where election protection attorneys &others appeared to be closing in on critical irregularities& illegalities.In his pre-election deposition,Connell was generally evasive,but did disclose key pieces of information that could prove damaging to Karl Rove&the GOP. Examining attorneys in the civil rights lawsuit,stemming from the 2004 election theft,were confident Connell had far more to tell.

Last US House seat filled on grave of stolen 2004 election
The conference underscored the fact that the legacy of J. Kenneth Blackwell and 2004's stolen vote continues to permeate Ohio's electoral process. But the Kilroy outcome and the conference that accompanied it underscored the change that has come to the Buckeye State, and that is likely to push even further toward secure, reliable elections.
