- There is a bumper sticker I saw months ago that sums
up the current state of affairs in our country regarding what is the biggest
news story you'll never see on the General Media reported. It said "IF
YOUR NOT OUTRAGED, YOUR NOT PAYING ATTENTION".
- On Friday I received a phone call from a good friend
who works at CBS--I've known her for years and she is a Producer for some
of the news programs, one well known one in particular. She tipped me off
that the news media is in a "lock-down" and that there is to
be no TV coverage of the real problems with voting on Nov. 2nd. She said
similar "lock-down orders" had come down last year after the
invasion of Iraq, but this is far worse--far scarier. She said the majority
of their journalists at CBS and elsewhere in NYC are pretty horrified--every
one is worried about their jobs and retribution Dan Rather style or worse.
My source said they've also been forbidden to talk about it even on their
own time but she was pissed and her journalistic and moral integrity as
what she considers to be a gov't watchdog requires her to speak out, while
be it covert and she therefore asked me to "spread" the word...
She said that journalism and the truth is at stake. She said another friend
of hers, a producer at MSNBC, said that an anchor by the name of Keith
Olbermann had brought it up on his show on Friday eve and the axe came
down. He's at least fighting back and talking about it on his "Blog",
but she said that people there are worried that he's going to be fired
by higher ups. She said at this point the only way that the "real
news" was going to be if the people started talking about it and made
a big enough stink about it to our elected officials, the FEC, and "noise"
to the international media, that our own media won't have any choice but
to cover it. (Yes, this is really happening in the good ole' supposed "democratic"
free press of the US of A). The only place you'll see this talked about
right now is on the internet and on AirAmericaRadio.
- Everyone--this is serious....I can't emphasize it any
more than saying if there was ever a time to speak up and take action it
is NOW. If you are feeling sick to your stomach (like me) about the possibility
of 4 more years under Bush and the future of our country, and yet you feel
helpless, here's your opportunity to take action. Imagine if you saw a
loved one drowning--what do you do? Well, our country's democracy is drowning
and she needs us. In an email I sent you last night, I used the F-word--FRAUD
and mentioned to you that I felt strongly that there is a lot of mounting
evidence that this election was not clean. I say that not only out of a
result of my observations while out in the field as a poll watcher in the
key battleground state of Ohio, I say it with the knowledge and information
of reports that have been circulating around the country in various voting
precincts involving irregularities and problems with the voting machines
and numbers not matching up with the exit polls or actual numbers of registered
voters in various precincts. I've been busy researching this issue and
compiling for you below some details of these reports and where you can
get more info:
- To believe that Bush won the election, you must also
- 1- That the exit polls were WRONG...(remember--they have
been used for over a decade and considered reliable)
- 2- That Zogby's 5pm election day calls for Kerry winning
OH, FL were WRONG. He was within a less than 1/2 % point margin of error
in his 2000 final poll and previous polls for other elections.
- 3- That Harris Poll last minute polling for Kerry was
WRONG. They were also within a 1/2% point margin of error in their 2000
- 4- The Incumbent Rule
- I (that undecideds primarily break at the end for the
- 5- The 50% Rule was WRONG (that an incumbent doesn't
do better than his final polling)
- 6- The Approval Rating Rule was WRONG (that an incumbent
with less than 50% approval will most likely lose the election)
- 7- That Journalist Greg Palast was WRONG when he said
that even before the election, 1 million votes were stolen from Kerry.
He was the ONLY reporter to break the fact that 90,000 Florida blacks were
disnfranchised in 2000.
- 8- That it was just a COINCIDENCE that the exit polls
were CORRECT where there WAS a PAPER TRAIL and INCORRECT (+5% for Bush)
where there was NO PAPER TRAIL.
- 9- That the surge in new young voters had NO positive
effect for Kerry, even though it was the largest number of youth voters
18-29 ever and a huge jump from 2000 and they were over 55% in favor of
Kerry. >> 10- That Bush BEAT 99 to 1 mathematical odds in winning
- 11- That Kerry did WORSE than Gore against an opponent
who LOST the support of SCORES of Republican newspapers who were for Bush
- 12- That Bush did better than an 18 national poll average
which showed him tied with Kerry at 47. In other words, Bush got 80% of
the undecided vote to end up with a 51-48 majority--when ALL professional
pollsters agree that the undecided vote ALWAYS goes to the challenger.
- 13- That Voting machines made by Republicans with no
paper trail and with no software publication, which have been proven by
thousands of computer scientists to be vulnerable in scores of ways, were
NOT tampered with in this election.
- Some Examples: (There are many more, but I won't list
them all here--this is to give you an idea)
- - The City of Gahanna in Ohio discovered a discrepancy
that gave 4,000 votes to George Bush. After media scrutiny, city officials
have admitted to an electronic "glitch" that caused the problem.
- - In Broward County, FL, errors in software code caused
a referendum on gambling to be completely overturned. The error caused
totals to count backwards after reaching a ceiling of 32,500 votes. The
problem existed in the 2002 election as well however the issue was never
resolved by the manufacturer of the electronic voting machine.
- - In North Carolina, a Craven County district logged
11,283 more votes than voters and actually overturned the results of a
