The latest Harper's magazine contains a disturbing cover story titled "How to Rig an Election: The GOP Aims to Paint the Country Red." It alleges that certain Republican insiders around America electronically manipulate touch-screen voting machines and ballot-counting computers to falsify election returns.
The long article begins by recounting historic U.S. election frauds, many of them committed by Democrats. But it says a "red shift" has occurred, with modern ballot thievery mostly attributed to Republicans. The prestigious magazine explains:
"Two major events have paved the way for this lethal form of election manipulation: the mass adoption of computerized voting technology, and the outsourcing of our elections to a handful of corporations that operate in the shadows, with little oversight or accountability."
Leaders of America's election computer firms include some far-right political zealots and some outright crooks, the report says, adding:
"Many of the staffers behind our major voting-machine companies have been accused or convicted of a dizzying array of white-collar crimes, including conspiracy, bribery, bid-rigging, computer fraud, tax fraud, stock fraud, mail fraud, extortion and drug trafficking."
Harper's lists scandals linked to Diebold, Sequoia, Election Systems & Software, Dominion and other firms. It also lists 2008 and 2010 state-level elections where polls had predicted easy Democratic victories, but tallies from electronic machines mysteriously gave "upsets" to Republicans.
And it lists states and foreign nations that have banned various electronic systems as untrustworthy. For example, it says Ireland spent $70 million for paperless machines -- but sold them as scrap in June for $92,000.

The trail of corruption is none other than the same path that the conservative, racist, hood-wearing knuckle-dragging Dixiecrat faction of the southern Democrat Party of yesteryear has followed to hijack that which survives as the Republican Party of today. Anti-intellectual, anti-scientific, xenophobic and angry, they are easily manipulated by corporate propaganda to be its pawns to do its bidding even though its interests are diametrically opposed to their own. They think concretely in black and white terms and believe every issue has only two sides — their own and the wrong side. They believe that the end always justifies the means, so that any strategy that works is considered acceptable. Stealing elections does not matter — all that matters is winning elections.

This pattern is self-perpetuating. These pawns are manipulated to engage in behavior that works against their own interests, which insures they remain angry. Their masters fuel that anger by urging them to rebel against anything and everything that stands in the way of the masters’ success, using any means that will work.

Currently, the pawns have been convinced that Romney has “momentum” that will insure his victory and that when that happens everything they hate will be done away with on “day one.” Of course, wealth will soon fall from above, the realm of their wealthy corporate masters.

Some will be stationed at polling places as “monitors,” and their presence will be intended to intimidate and disrupt the election process by challenging eligibility of voters who “look like” they may be ineligible. It could be skin color, or perhaps that Obama/Biden bumper sticker on their car parked outside.

When they discover that something went awry with the momentum myth, they will be capable of concluding only that President Obama somehow fixed the election. And, yes, they’ll be very angry.

“See how you are?”

LOL! Nobody whines and cries like Limbaugh! It was nothing but crying and whining from 92 thru 2000 while the economy was good, then flag waving and chest thumping while we invaded Iraq, then whining and crying about birth certificates and college records. Republicans are poor losers, but even worse winners.

Romney Campaign, Media Collude in Unprecedented Politicization of Benghazi Attack
Five of the seven deadliest terrorist attacks on Americans overseas, claiming from five to 283 lives between 1983 and 2004, occurred in the lead-up to or during presidential campaigns. A sixth, the bombing of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, happened in the middle of a tense 1998 congressional campaign, and as the House girded itself for the coming impeachment battle.
Yet the handling of these attacks by Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush never became the kind of partisan fodder that the loss of four American lives at Benghazi has become, pushed by the Romney/Ryan ticket and unprecedented critical coverage, both of which are politicizing every nuance of the Obama administration’s response.
In contrast with Mitt Romney’s relentless Libya critique, Clinton in 1992, Clinton opponent Bob Dole in 1996, Bush II and Newt Gingrich in 1998, Bush II again in 2000 and Bush II opponent John Kerry in 2004 did not exploit these incidents, while Walter Mondale’s attempt to do so in 1984 got little media support. As forcefully as Romney is attempting to depict the attack as a consequence of Obama’s perceived Middle East “weakness,” over 90 percent of the 538 Americans who died in these seven earlier incidents did so while a Republican was in the White House, and Obama’s tally of four fatalities in overseas incidents is the lowest death toll of any modern American president. Nonetheless, Romney’s drumbeat about the Libya attack, focused on the timetable of administration disclosures about the nature of the assault, has had a greater impact on this presidential campaign than the abject bungling of far more catastrophic events that preceded it.

In all the cases you cited, none of those Involved the Murder of a Government Official while the President sat there and watched it happen and ALLOWED the terrorists to kill them.

You damn right we're "exploiting" this...we're gonna make damn sure the Murdring bastard does NOT get away scott free on this one, and it matters not if our Government takes action or WE do, either way the bastard is gonna pay the price for it! People can attempt to spin it any way they like, but the fact remains we do NOT conspire with terrorists and those that do get the same thing the Muj filth does that actually carried out. Conspiracy to commit is no different than if the bastard poured the diesel fuel himself and set it on fire. It the very SAME THING!

FATHER PADDY LED FRED THROUGH THE DARKENED AND FLOODING STREETS AS THE RAIN ROARED DOWN. THE ONLY GOOD NEWS WAS THAT THE TORRENT OF WATER WAS WASHING THEM BOTH OFF AND FLAKES OF CAKED-ON DIRT AND EXCREMENT WERE DISSOLVED SO AS THEY RAN NORTHWARD THEY WERE GRADUALLY BECOMING WHITER AND CLEANER.

ABOUT MIDNIGHT THEY ARRIVED AT THE PUBLIC LIBRARY, WHICH WAS BEING PRIVATIZED, SO THEY HAD TO CLIMB OVER A CHAIN-LINK FENCE TO REACH THE COVERED PORTICO GUARDED BY TWO HUGE BRONZE LIONS IN REPOSE.

THE TWO MEN HUDDLED AS FAR BACK FROM THE DRIVING RAIN AS POSSIBLE BUT THERE WAS NO REAL SHELTER AND FINALLY THEY WERE REDUCED TO JUST CLINGING TO EACH OTHER AND, IN THE CASE OF FATHER PADDY IN ANY EVENT, PRAYING.

"DEAR LORD, PLEASE FORGIVE THIS TIRED OLD SINNER HIS TRESPASSES AND HELP ME FIND THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE THIS NIGHT. AND HELP MY FRIEND HANNIBAL TOO, PLEASE, HE'S AN INNOCENT CREATURE AND HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH."

FRED WAS LISTENING TO ALL THIS AS HE TRIED TO SHIELD HIS TABLET FROM THE DRIVING RAIN AND FOR SOME REASON WHEN HE HEARD THE PRIEST USE THE WORD,'FRIEND,' HIS HEART SWELLED AND HE FELT... ALIVE IN SOME WAY HE HADN'T EXPERIENCED IN A LONG, LONG TIME. FRED CLUNG TO THE OLD MAN MORE TIGHTLY AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS A MASSIVE CLAP OF THUNDER AND THE RAIN INSTANTLY CEASED.

FAR AWAY A CLOCK STRUCK 12 AND THE SUDDEN QUIET SEEMED OMINOUS. THEY SAT WRAPPED IN EACH OTHERS' ARMS AND STARED OUT INTO THE FOGGY MIDDLE DARKNESS AND VERY GRADUALLY THEY BECAME AWARE THAT THEY WERE... NOT ALONE... SOMETHING WAS OUT THERE... WATCHING THEM, WAITING FOR THEM...

"silly"
One more time you are correct. The good old government just has to step in and help those to lazy or to stoopid to take care of themselves. Instead of spending their monies on insurance they choose to take a chance, in this case they lost but all will be okay. The taxpayers, those who do not expect the government to be their savior will pick up the tab.

General Keane Debunks Ridiculous Benghazi Conspiracy

http://mediamatters.org/video/2012/11/02/reti...

Bolling doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about. Two of the four Americans, Doherty and Woods, were killed by mortar fire at the CIA Annex after the rest of the consulate staff had been evacuated by the CIA team.

Second, and once again, Bolling is under the false impression that American soldiers can just beam in Star Trek style to any situation. They can’t.

Between Keane and Geraldo, it’s almost as if Fox News guest bookers are deliberately trying to embarrass Bolling. Good job.
