I'm sure going to vote for him! I wouldn't vote for either of these Mel Sembler trained perverts and the female depocrap don't stand the chance pat stood in hell.

The problem will be as always since 2004 Jeb Boosh and his bush whackers have got all the optical scanners in specific locations fixed with the Clint Curtis vote fixing software.

And you can vote for whomever you choose but the machine is going to give it to their chosen one which I suspect will be the Bush family Dallas, Tx oil and hospital lawyer (Rick Scott) that Jeb Bush handed over the remnants of the International Medical Centers assests to when Jeb's partner Miguel Recarey got caught(by honest Federal agents) for the first largest Medicare Scheme in the USA.

You don't think that Rick Scott was smart enought to invent that Columbia/ HCA Medicare Fraud all by himself do you? Heck no! It was Jeb making those calls to HHS in Wooshington DC All along!

Bush Insider Who Planned To Tell All Killed In Plane
Crash: Non-Profit Demands Full Federal Investigation
Published: December 20, 2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/--

Michael Connell, the Bush IT expert who has been directly implicated in the rigging of George Bush's 2000 and 2004 elections, was killed last night when his single engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron airport. Velvet Revolution ("VR"), a non-profit that has been investigating Mr. Connell's activities for the past two years, can now reveal that a person close to Mr. Connell has recently been discussing with a VR investigator how he can tell all about
His work for George Bush. Mr. Connell told a close associate that he was afraid that
George Bush and Dick Cheney would "throw him under the bus."

A tipster close to the McCain campaign disclosed to VR in July that Mr. Connell's life
was in jeopardy and that Karl Rove had threatened him and his wife, Heather. VR's
attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, notified the United States Attorney General , Ohio law
enforcement and the federal court about these threats and insisted that Mr. Connell be
placed in protective custody. VR also told a close associate of Mr. Connell's not to fly his
plane because of another tip that the plane could be sabotaged. Mr. Connell, a very
experienced pilot, has had to abandon at least two flights in the past two months
because of suspicious problems with his plane. On December 18, 2008, Mr. Connell flew
to a small airport outside of Washington DC to meet some people. It was on his return
flight the next day that he crashed.

On October 31, Mr. Connell appeared before a federal judge in Ohio after being
subpoenaed in a federal lawsuit investigating the rigging of the 2004 election under the
direction of Karl Rove. The judge ordered Mr. Connell to testify under oath at a
deposition on November 3rd, the day before the presidential election. Velvet Revolution
received confidential information that the White House was extremely concerned about
Mr. Connell talking about his illegal work for the White House and two Bush/Cheney
04 attorneys were dispatched to represent him.

An associate of Mr. Connell's told VR that Mr. Connell was involved with the
destruction of the White House emails and the setting up of the off-grid White House
email system.

Mr. Connell handled all of John McCain's computer work in the recent presidential
campaign. VR has received direct evidence that the McCain campaign kept abreast of
the legal developments against Mr. Connell by reading the VR dedicated website,
www.rovecybergate.com .

VR demands that the Ohio Attorney General and the United States Justice Department
conduct a complete investigation into the activities of Mr. Connell and determine
whether there was any foul play in his death. VR demands that federal law enforcement
officials place the following people under protective custody pending this investigation.

Heather Connell who is the owner of GovTech Solutions, Randy Cole, the former President of GovTech Solutions, and Jeff Averbeck, the CEO of SmartTech in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Both
GovTech and SmartTech have been implicated in the rigging of the 2000 and 2004 elections and the White House email scandal. Our prior request to have Mr. Connell
protected went unheeded and now he is dead.

Clint Curtis testified before Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee investigating allegations of voter fraud in the 2004 presidential election involving touch-screen voting in Ohio.

Now we have learned it is easier for them to manipulate the optical scanner tabulations as long as they can continue to prevent hand counting of the paper ballots scanned!

Jeb Bush passsed an administrative order forbidding hand recounting. If ballots must be recounted per Bush's order they must be recounted on the same optical scanner that counted them the first time!

Tom Feeney implicated in vote fraud {Feeney was Jeb Bush's LT GOV running mate when he lost his first bid for governor to Lawton Childs.]

Congressman sought to alter totals, testimony in Ohio case says
By Alex Babcock | December 16, 2004

Republican Congressman Tom Feeney of Oviedo asked a computer programmer in September 2000, prior to that year's contested presidential vote in Florida, to write software that could alter vote totals on touch-screen voting machines, the programmer said.

Former computer programmer Clint Curtis made the claim Monday in sworn testimony to Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee investigating allegations of voter fraud in the 2004 presidential election involving touch-screen voting in Ohio.

In his testimony, Curtis said that Feeney, then a member of the Florida House of Representative, met with Curtis and other employees of Yang Enterprises, an Oviedo software company, and asked if the company could create a program that would allow a user to alter the vote totals while using the touch-screen machine. The program had to be written so that even the human-readable computer code would not show its illicit capabilities, Curtis recalled.

Curtis said he wrote a prototype program for Feeney, and that he believed the program might not only be usable on touch-screen voting machines, which some counties - predominantly in South Florida - now use, but also on optical-scan machines, which most of the state's counties used in the 2004 elections.

Feeney could not be reached for comment.

Michael O'Quinn, an attorney for Yang Enterprises, said Curtis' claims are outrageous and that Feeney never discussed such a program with the company. He said Feeney's only relationship with the company was as its legal counsel. Feeney worked at the law firm with O'Quinn until 2002, when he resigned after being elected to Congress.
"I immediately assumed that he was trying to keep you guys from cheating," Curtis told Democrats at the hearing Monday. Curtis further said that Li Woan Yang, a co-owner of the company, told him that, "We need to hide the fraud in the source code, not reveal the fraud, because it's needed to control the vote in South Florida."

Curtis, who formerly lived in Oviedo, quit the software company in December 2000, after the November 2000 election that preceded Feeney rise to become speaker of the Florida House.

"I left because all of the meetings with Feeney let me know I wasn't in a situation I wanted to be in," he said in an interview with the Chronicle. "He's in there selling contracts, telling us how to bid them, special little formulas being employed, how you get right point structure. They were going to limit how many vendors could apply to government contracts so only connected vendors could get on the approved list."

O'Quinn confirmed that Curtis resigned, but said he told the company he got a job in another state. Curtis ended up working for the Florida Department of Transportation. O'Quinn also disputed the allegation that Feeney helped work on government bids, saying Feeney was careful to avoid such work because of ethics rules. Feeney "played no role whatsoever" in helping Yang secure government contracts, O'Quinn said. The company currently does work for NASA, the state Department of Transportation and other companies.

Yang Enterprises, in a statement released to the public, said Curtis' allegations are "categorically untrue."
Democrats and independent groups are challenging presidential election results in Ohio, and have claimed that irregularities in some precinct results might have been caused by tampering with electronic voting machines.

Curtis said he has been trying to get attention drawn to his claims since shortly after leaving Yang Enterprises, but has had difficulty until this year. After watching a news report about voting machines in Florida being installed at precincts without having their software inspected, he said he redoubled his effort to get public attention.

Florida Voting Machines Can Be Hacked
By Marc Caputo The Miami Herald
Tuesday 31 July 2007

Tallahassee - Reversing an unofficial policy of denial, the Florida Secretary of State's office has conducted an elections study that confirmed Tuesday what a maverick voting chief discovered nearly two years ago: Insider computer hackers can change votes without a trace on Diebold optical-scan machines. The study by Florida State University found that, despite recent software fixes,” an adversary could use a pre-programmed computer card to swap one candidate's votes for another or create a "ballot-stuffing attack" that multiplies votes for a candidate or issue.”

A Diebold spokesman, Mark Radke, said the company is confident it will upgrade the "minor" software glitch by an Aug. 17 deadline the state has set. If it doesn't, Secretary of State Kurt Browning said his office would eventually ban the use of optiscan Diebold machines in Florida, where 25 counties, including Monroe, use its fill-in-the-blank systems.

All other voting vendors are being examined for the same security issues, including Elections Systems & Software machines, which Miami-Dade and Broward use as well. A new state law requires that, by next year, all counties must use paper-trail style machines.
The Clint Curtis / Tom Feeney / Yang Enterprises, Inc. Vote-Rigging Scandal

BRAD BLOG SPECIAL COVERAGE Brad Friedman Last Updated: 08/29/2006 02:43 PM - On December 6th, 2004, in an explosive exclusive, The BRAD BLOG published a sworn affidavit by Florida software programmer Clint Curtis. In his affidavit and videotaped sworn testimony presented before members of the U.S. House Judiciary committee, Curtis claims to have been asked by U.S. Congressman Tom Feeney (R-FL) to design a "vote-rigging software prototype". This request took place in October 2000 during a meeting at Yang Enterprises, Inc.(YEI), a computer consulting firm in Oviedo, Florida.
Curtis, a life-long Republican up until then, had been a programmer at YEI, which had several top-secret clearance contracts with the state, NASA and other government agencies. Curtis' understanding at the time was that the prototype he was being asked to create (built to the very precise specifications of Feeney) was to address Feeney’s concerns that the Democrats might attempt to electronically rig the election and Feeney wanted to know what to look out for in that event. After informing YEI CEO Mrs. Li-Woan Yang that he would not be able to hide the vote-flipping routines in the software source-code as Feeney had requested, Curtis testified that Mrs. Yang informed him that the program was needed to "rig the vote in South Florida ". Curtis testified before congress that he invented the chip and handed it off to Tom Feeney.

At the time of the alleged meeting, Feeney was the incoming Speaker of the Florida House, and also a registered lobbyist and the general corporate counsel for YEI. Previously, he had been the running mate of Jeb Bush during his 1994 unsuccessful first bid for Florida Governor. In November 2000, Feeney gained national notoriety after declaring open defiance of the Florida Supreme Court by vowing to choose Presidential electors for George W. Bush regardless of whether a court-ordered recount showed that Gore won Florida. He eventually ascended to the U.S. Congress and the House Judiciary Committee. Although he was outspent two to one by his Democratic opponent in 2002, Feeney beat him handily at the polls and then ran unopposed for the same seat in 2004. Now Tom Feeney is President of Associated Industries of Florida.

Also interested parties should Google Clint Curtis/ Ray Lemme to obtain the documented evidence regarding the FDOT IG's investigations and statement of Clint Curtis regarding his involvement with Ray Lemme's investigations [he was found dead (suicided) in a Vadosta, Ga motel room.]
Also Google Coggins Farms and John Couey for more interesting Valdosta escapades!

Diebold Election Systems changed it’s name to Premier Election Solutions, already a subsidiary of Diebold, and their smallest business segment, accounting for 2.4% of their gross revenue. It entered the business of creating electronic voting terminals and solutions for government entities in 2001 by purchasing the assets of Global Election Systems which had been selling election equipment since 1991. This subsidiary was the subject of controversy amid allegations surrounding the security and reliability of some of its products as well.

Head learning of the skull is a wonderful thing. I don't believe God Almighty intended for his humans and other animal species to be ignorant.

I don't believe he intended for his people to cow down to those who abuse the human race at any costs either.

If he did how come cats and dogs and other animals are born with the intelligence to have their babies and take care of them (with few exceptions)

How come cows lay down on the ground before humans have sense enough to realize bad weather is coming? Do they have a special weather app? If so they have had it for over sixty years that I know of.

A Benevolent Dictatorship is the Best Form of Government. Everything in Secret and above the law needs to be imperative.-- George H W Bush

Former U.S. President George H. W. Bush in 1988 said: New World Order is the consolidation of more power and money into tighter, fewer, righted, eliter, whiter, hands. NAZI Adolph Hitler first coined the phrase: New World Order.

Bush further stated in June 1992 to Sarah McClendon the Grandam of the Washington White House Press Corps when she asked Bush what will the people do if they ever find out the truth about Iraq-gate and Iran-Contra? George H W Bush Replied: Sarah, If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched.[ well George the people with brains know!]

Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.--George W. Bush August 5, 2004

There's a government inside the government and I don't control it.-- President Bill Clinton

Governments are only there for Us to Rob, Loot and Pillage.--President George H. W. Bush

The American People, The BUD People, The Broke Useless and Depressed. We are the MPBs, Money, Power and Brains. As long as we keep food on the BUDSTERS tables, a roof over their heads, a car in their driveway and gas in their gas tanks to go to and from work. We can keep the BUDSTERS at bay.--President George H. W. Bush.

The mob put Rick Scott in their in the first place! for some reason Jeb Bush didn't want Bill McCollum in the governor's office. That's why Jim Greer wouldn't allow a 2010 primary. Charles Bronson wanted to run for governor and Jim Greer had an Orlando meeting and said the RPOF could not afford a primary that year.

Then along comes the outsider! The donut man from St Louis with $70 million of of his own money. Said he'd work for $1 a year! Come to find out his $70 million come from Medicare fraud from Columbia/ HCA. the second largest Medicare Fraud case in US history right behind International Medical Centers run by Miguel Recary. A friend and partner of Jeb Bush who fled the US in 1987.

----------

"HMO, health maintenance organizations, czar charmed VIP's. Tycoons high-level allies helped him to prosper" Miami Herald, 12-20-87 Dave Von Drehle

Cast of characters and who got rich on IMC, International Medical Centers, merged under the control of Mike Recarey Jr.

Miguel (Mike) Recarey Jr., came to USA in 1961 from Cuba. Father in food export business in Batista's Cuba. Uncle a wealthy doctor from Cuba, all settled in Florida.

Recarey Managed, Through His "Friends And Lobbyists" to get $30,000,000 each month.$1,000,000 daily, for his enterprises, projects. When expenses too high, profits down, Recarey fled USA, left millions in bills.

JEB BUSH, SON OF VICE-PRESIDENT BUSH, FORMER CIA DIRECTOR GEORGE BUSH, made 3 important calls to D.C.

1. Jeb Bush call to C. McClain Haddow, former head of Health and Human Services. Bush assured Haddow of Recarey's "solid background".
Failed to mention Mike Recarey's original funds to build a hospital came after "APPROACH TO MAFIA BOSS SANTO TRAFFICANTE AND ROBERT VESCO".
The connections of Trafficante, Barbie, Merex, Colonia Dignidad, G. Bush's CIA and Iran weapons, Nazi deals. CIA SANTOS TRAFFICANTE DIED 3-19-87, just when his links to this huge story was coming out. WEDTECH MIAMI STYLE!
NOTE: In the New York Wedtech trial, the Government's chief witnesses are four former Wedtech executives -''scoundrels'' according to Mr. Nessen. The defendants are Mr. Biaggi, Mr. Simon and five others who are accused of using bribery to gain political favors and Government contracts.

2. Margaret Heckler, who replaced Haddow, found "BUSH PERSUASIVE" in favor or changing conditions whereby RECAREY could get his $30,000,000 a month.[30 MILLION A MONTH]
3. Jeb Bush called KEVIN MOLEY, a top official in Health and Human Services.
Haddow, who signed a waiver for Recarey, got $30,000 fee. Recarey has been charged with bribery, wiretapping, has left USA.

During his medical services days, was the LARGEST RECIPIENT OF MEDICARE BENEFITS IN THE USA.(In spite of fact where seed funds came from)

Involved in 1970 hospital scandal,$200,000. He kept books, not charged.

IRS sent him to jail in 1973, caught up with unpaid taxes. "Local GROUP NEEDED A NEW HOSPITAL, needed money, offered Recarey the deal if he would approach MAFIA BOSS SANTO TRAFFICANTE AND FINANCIER ROBERT VESCO". Started HMO, Health Maintenance Organizations, it merged with International Medical Centers. Handled Cuban refugees, 10,000, automatically enrolled families.

Fugitives: U.S. Efforts to Find Miguel Recarey (Letter Report, 12/21/94,
GAO/OSI-95-7).

In October 1985, Miguel G. Recarey, Jr., former President and Chairman
of the Board of International Medical Centers, Inc., failed to appear
for a hearing in U.S. District Court in Florida on charges of bribing an
officer of an employee welfare fund, bribing a potential federal grand
jury witness, and illegal wiretapping. Mr. Recarey fled the United
States in October 1987, beginning an international fugitive
investigative effort covering at least three continents and 11
countries. This report discusses whether (1) the Departments of Justice
and State made a good-faith effort to locate and gain custody of Mr.
Recarey,(2) Justice Department officials contacted the Venezuelan
government on this matter,(3) the Venezuelan government told the U.S.
government that it had tried to find Mr. Recarey, and (4) the U.S.
government followed standard operating procedures to locate and gain
custody of Mr. Recarey.

Then beginning in 1987 Rick Scott former Dallas Texas lawyer with the firm of Johnson & Swanson specializing in oil, gas and hospitals - partnered with the likes of Tom Hicks and George W. Bush in the Texas Rangers and other little schemes, with the help of Jeb Bush - Rick Scott and Richard Rainwater picked up the leftovers of International Medical Centers when Recarey fled the USA. Hospitals and a Medicare Fraud plan already in place with the help of Jeb Bush's Washington DC Connections! This little well planned scheme worked until 1997 when Rick Scott left with a $300 million payout. In 1995 Rick Scott took the fifth amendment 75 times to avoid criminal prosecution and then lated lied about that as well. Google this deposition! It is on you-tube!

FLASHBACK: Rick Scott's Columbia/HCA Was Fined $1.7 Billion for Defrauding Medicare - June 24, 2009 1:55 pm ET — Melinda Warner On June 23, 2009, the New York Times reported:

At $100 Million, the newest Medicare fraud case still doesn't come close to what Rick Scott's company paid for defrauding Medicare.
"Officials in Miami reported breaking a Medicare fraud ring that they say spanned five states, used 29 fake storefronts and tried to steal $100 million from Medicare and Medicare Advantage. Eight defendants were charged in the elaborate scam that the authorities say billed Medicare for bogus H.I.V. and cancer infusion drugs using storefronts in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and South Carolina, the authorities said. Two of the defendants and about $30 million are still missing."
Interesting, disgusting, and, unfortunately, not the first time millions of dollars in Medicare fraud has been uncovered.

Anyone familiar with Rick Scott, Conservatives for Patients Rights (CPR), and/or the Columbia/HCA hospital system knows that $100 million is just a drop in the bucket compared to the fine Scott's Columbia/HCA paid for defrauding Medicare.

Rick Scott's company, Columbia/HCA, paid a $1.7 billion settlement after pleading guilty to several charges. The fraud was so rampant under Scott's leadership that some documents were brazenly "stamped with warnings that they should not be disclosed to Medicare auditors," "some hospitals were knowingly inflating the numbers reported to the Government in the cost report to improperly raise total compensation," and they "improperly included expenses for employee picnics, Christmas gifts and food for nonemployees at social functions as expenditures related to patient care in the cost report for its headquarters."

Columbia/HCA pled guilty to "overcharging the government," "exaggerating the seriousness of the illnesses" of patients, and giving doctors kickbacks in order to receive higher Medicare payments. Well done. It takes a special kind of person to steal money from a program that helps hardworking Americans.

It's funny (in a twisted way) that with all the arguments against health care reform based on the government's record of "waste, fraud, and abuse," that these private entities are taking such liberties with Medicare funding.

Note: When Rick Scott is asked about the fraud his company committed, he always answers that he was never charged with any crimes. Correct. But to try to convince Americans that he was unaware of his company's activity is a stretch. That's like a coach trying to claim ignorance about which plays his team runs on the field.

The Bush Proffiteers - From the list of 100 Donors to the campaign of George W. Bush who enjoy Hand Off - Hand Out government.

The Florida Connections!

3. Tom & R. Steven Hicks (Dallas):$146,000
Tom Hicks is a corporate raider at Hicks Muse Tate & Furst (other name partners gave GWB $58,000). He made GWB’s fortune when he bought the Texas Rangers for $250 million in 1999. After GWB’s election, UT Regents set up the University of Texas Investment Management Co. and made Hicks chair; lucrative UT investment contracts then flowed to firms tied to Hicks and his brother, who headed Capstar Broadcasting.

10. Richard E. Rainwater (Ft. Worth):$100,000
Rainwater was a key investor in the Texas Rangers and Columbia/HCA Healthcare, which the government is investigating on Medicare fraud charges (see Richard Scott, No. 65). GWB received $37,500 from executives of Rainwater’s Crescent Real Estate (see Gerald Haddock, No. 33), which bought two buildings from the state in 1996 at bargain-basement prices. GWB’s personal blind trust invested in Crescent during his first term.

27. A. Glenn Braswell (Miami, FL):$25,000
This VITA Industries donor appears to be the man who Quackwatch says, probably set a record as the person against whom the Postal Service filed the largest number of health-related false representation claims. A. Glenn Braswell pled guilty to faking before-and-after photos for baldness and bust-enhancement remedies.

63. José Fanjul (Palm Beach, FL):$10,000
The First Family of Corporate Welfare, the Fanjuls control a third of Florida sugar production, collecting $60 million a year in federal subsidies. Their Everglades land was drained at public expense, an environmental nightmare that costs taxpayers $63 million a year to maintain. The Fanjuls invest heavily in politicians; President Clinton even took a call from José’s brother Alfonso while being serviced by Monica Lewinsky.

65. Richard L. Scott (Ft. Worth):$10,000 aka Rick Scott – now Governor of Florida
With start up capital from Richard Rainwater (No. 10), Scott started Columbia/HCA Healthcare chain. The HMO’s 10-year, hospital-buying binge ended in 1997 with federal investigators raiding Columbia facilities for evidence of Medicare fraud.

NOTE: After graduating, Scott practiced law at Johnson & Swanson in Dallas, Texas, where he was eventually made partner. One of Scott’s major clients was Tom Hicks [#3 above] of HM Capital and many other corporate entities. It was Tom Hick’s that brought Rick Scott together with George W. Bush in the Texas Ranger’s purchase.

In 1988, Scott and multimillionaire Richard Rainwater founded their own company, Columbia Hospital Corporation, through which they bought old hospitals,“including many in South Florida.” The venture was so successful that Business Week named it one of the best performing companies in the nation. A 1997 fraud investigation forced Scott out as CEO and Chairman. From then on until his venture into politics, Scott dabbled in several profitable investment schemes, and was even co-owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team with President George W. Bush.

80. George/Richard Wackenhut (FL):$6,000 [name changed to THE GEO GROUP] The largest U.S. prison company, Wackenhut Corrections has tens of millions of dollars in contracts with Texas. The state had to take over a Wackenhut-run facility in Austin in 1999 following criminal charges that Wackenhut understaffed the jail, falsified its records and employed guards that beat and had sex with inmates.

97. Jackson Stephens (Little Rock, AR):$3,000
Investment banker Stephens was a big GHWB fundraiser. He helped GWB’s Harken Oil raise money by selling its stock to buyers tied to the criminal Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI). These BCCI associates were: Saudi Abdullah Bakhsh and Swiss Union Bank, which helped BCCI evade money-laundering laws in Panama.

January 2014- Florida Governor Rick Scott appoints long time Bush family “cronie”“Spain born” CARLOS LOPEZ CANTERA as Lt. Governor of Florida.

In 2004 at the ripe age of THIRTY CARLOS LOPEZ CANTERA was supported by the Bush machine for “STATE HOUSE SEAT 113”

Lopez Cantera is listed here along with Marco Rubio from the 2004 re-elect George W. Bush for President website along with a side note from JEB endorsing their “winning Republican Ticket.”
