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.

Sure moron, it's all Obama's fault that a super storm smashed into the Middle Atlantic and cut off power. I'm sure that Romney would have stood there and scared the storm away.
You're an idiot!
It's IS Obama's fault that FEMA didn't show up for nearly AN ENTIRE WEEK, that non-union volunteers are being turned away and that there is no food or water and the shortage of gasoline is due to Obama's EPA policies. This is worse than Obama's Katrina, this is Obama's Armageddon! Obama has really dropped the ball this time. Scores of people have already died and the toll keeps rising. He should be charged with criminal negligence due to his incompetence and arrogance during this national disaster. He should be charged with the crime of accessory to murder of the four Diplomats in Libya as well.

Okay dimwit here's a report from the New Jersey Star Ledger;
In the four days since Sandy made landfall, some 2,300 FEMA agents have been involved in the response and recovery effort. The agency has released more than $18 million in rental and other forms of financial assistance, including more than $10.6 million to New Jersey residents, administrator Craig Fugate said.
Friday, FEMA opened disaster recovery centers in Brick and Cape May Courthouse the first of at least 10 offices to be set up and the agency added Somerset and Bergen counties to the federally-designated disaster area, which already included Atlantic, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Union counties.
Gov. Chris Christie attended the opening of the Brick recovery center, located on the grounds of the Drum Point Road Elementary School. An office will open in Little Ferry today, and offices in Middlesex and Monmouth counties will be open by Monday, he said.
"These centers are boots-on-the-ground assistance from the federal government to help answer questions, provide guidance and get you the kind of help you need," Christie said.
Rowan University Professor Robert Fleming, a national expert on emergency preparation and response, gave the agency high marks for its efforts. Weather-related disasters are especially hard to manage, he said.
"If you look at the magnitude of the storm, and the challenges it presented, it was a really coordinated plan," Fleming said. "Clearly they did things in the way of pre-positioning of assets, and even in advance of the storm hitting, getting the appropriate declarations. A whole lot was done to mobilize resources."
By the way stupid, the marathon's been cancelled.
You're an idiot!
Why did it take FEMA nearly an ENTIRE WEEK to show up? Why does the FEMA application process not start until SOMETIME LATER TODAY? Because Obama is busy rubbing elbows with movie stars and so-called "rap singers" in Vegas, that's why. Wonder of he can find the time to play nine holes while he's there?

For the first time in 6 years, computerized election theft is being a covered by a major American print publication. The November issue of Harper's Magazine features a cover story that relates some of the history, tells stories, and describes the extent to which American elections are being systematically shifted to the Right. Modern voting systems are completely un-verified and un-verifiable. Millions of votes can be shifted from a central location by modifying the software that reports the count. This alone is insane. But it is also true that most voting equipment is manufactured by companies that have deep Republican ties, and are controlled by people with criminal pasts. This is not just a potential danger. There are stories and lots of statistics to indicate that every Federal election of this century has been shifted to the right, and that corruption is entrenched and centralized.

On the November 2 edition of Fox & Friends, retired Gen. Jack Keane discussed claims that, in the words of guest co-host Eric Bolling, the Obama administration "did not call on the only response team that may have been able to intervene during the attack." Keane responded:

KEANE: Here's what did happen. The national security apparatus, at the request of General Hamm, who's the commander of AFRICOM -- and he's had responsibility from a security aspect to respond to this crisis -- our national mission response force, our most classified force on the highest state of readiness, was alerted and moved from the United States to Sigonella [Naval Air Station in Italy], and they bring with them their own aircraft, their own helicopters and C-17s. Another classified special operations force was moved out of Central Europe to Sigonella as well. The fact of the matter was the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed.

When Bolling claimed that there were military assets in the region, and "we certainly could have had some sort of response into the consulate earlier, sooner than -- boy, I don't even think they've ever even showed up yet," Keane responded:

KEANE: The fact of the matter is, what took place in terms of response to the consulate and response to the CIA base was pretty significant from inside the country, and the reality is the quick response force that came out of the CIA base moved in 24 minutes -- now we know for a fact based on surveillance tapes, from the time the consulate called for help -- and clearly, what those people did is miraculous and certainly courageous in rescuing everybody was still alive. Also, a reaction force was organized from Tripoli and moved to the CIA base, which was under attack for four hours, and also strengthened that CIA base and then was able to safely evacuate them to the airport and back to Tripoli.

Later in the show, Fox host Geraldo Rivera more actively pushed back against the Fox narrative, stating that while there are legitimate questions about what happened before and after the attack, "I take umbrage with what has been said" about the military response. Rivera said that after discussing the issue with Keane, "I am convinced that the military did whatever it could have done under the circumstances. I am similarly convinced that the State Department and the CIA also did, once the attack happened, everything they could."

Bolling said, "So Washington, the State Department, the CIA does nothing, sends no help," Rivera retorted, "That is an obscene lie.... You are a politician looking to make a political point." When Bolling continued to press his narrative, Rivera said again: "You are misleading the American people because you want to make a political point." Rivera added: "We have never in the history of this republic mounted a raid on the circumstance described here ever. We have never done it. The Israelis, when they rescued their people in Entebbe, it took them seven days to mount that operation. This was seven hours."

Rivera went on to say that Charles Woods, father of one of the Navy SEALs killed in the Benghazi attack, "is being led down the primrose path by misinformation that is making it look as if the president of the United States went gambling in Las Vegas when he could have been saving our people in Benghazi, and that's a lie."

Rivera concluded: "When I hear people with no combat experience suggest that,'Oh, my goodness, we saw it in real time,' it makes it sound like bureaucrats scratching their belly and watching our people die, and that's not what happened.... There was no Snoopy AC-130 gunship waiting on the strip in Italy."
