LIES – LET’S RECOUNT
“We can live with winning and losing. We cannot live with fraud and stealing”
Jesse Jackson Nov. 28, 2004 at the Mount Hermon Baptist Church
The unelected Bush Regime now controls the government, the military, the judiciary — and the machinery of democracy itself. Absent some unlikely great awakening by the co-opted dullards of the corporate media, next November the last shreds of a genuine American republic will disappear — at the push of a button.
“Those who cast the votes decide nothing.
Those who count the votes decide everything.”
— Josef Stalin
“Back in 2000 a Republican friend warned me that if I voted for Al Gore and he won, the stock market would tank, we’d lose millions of jobs, and our military would be totally overstretched. You know what? I did vote for Gore, he did win, and I’ll be damned if all those things didn’t come true!”
Monday, January 13, 2003 NEW YORK — Six major news organizations announced Monday the breakup of Voter News Service, the consortium they had built to count votes and conduct surveys on Election Day. The decision follows two major election-night failures in a row by VNS. [I am not going to post the whole piece of propaganda, I mean article, but this company has closed down several times before only to reopen with a new name -ed.]
[Diebold makes ATM machines that give you paper receipts. It is not difficult for them to build paper receipts into the voting machines. These paper receipts should be given to all voters then on the way out of the polls the receipts could then be handed to a private group to be scanned into handheld computers to ‘recount’ the election results, then returned to the voters. This would ensure that votes are being counted correctly. Otherwise, if the system is left as it is, we are likely to have Jeb Bush next. -ed.]
Diebold-Global: Corporate chief, Wally O’Dell, a top Bush fundraiser, has publicly committed himself to “delivering” his home state’s votes to Bush next year. The election division is run by Bob Urosevich. Bob was the co-founder of American Information Systems which became ES&S. Bob’s brother, Todd, is a top executive at “rival” ES&S. The brothers were originally staked in the vote-count business by Howard Ahmanson, a member of the Council for National Policy, a right-wing “steering group” stacked with Bushist faithful.
Diebold-Global’s top managers, Howard Van Pelt and Larry Ensminger, recently moved to Advanced Voting Solutions-Shoup.

Triad Governmental Systems: The votes in Ohio are officially “re-counted” and tallied 10 days after Election Day, Tod A. Rapp, the man who wrote the software that tabulates the votes in nearly half the counties in Ohio, told American Free Press. The outstanding provisional ballots are only counted after that, Rapp said. Rapp, the founder of Triad Governmental Systems, Inc. of Xenia, Ohio, wrote the computer program that tallies the punch-card ballots in the centralized counting systems used in 41 counties in Ohio. Rapp, whose sons now manage the family run company, is a generous supporter of the Republican Party and the presidential campaign of George W. Bush.

Vice president of Election Software & Services (ES&S)
Election Systems and Software (ES&S): ES&S claims to have counted 56% of the vote in the last four presidential elections. Was formed as a result of the merger of AIS and Business Records Corporation. Bob and Todd Urosevich founded its predecessor AIS in the 1980’s. Bob is now president of Diebold-Global, while brother Todd is a vice president at ES&S. Business Records Corp. which was merged with AIS to become ES&S, was partially owned by Cronus, a company that seems to have a lot of connections to the infamous Hunt brothers from Texas, as well as other individuals and entities, including Rothschild, Inc.. Right wing Republicans Howard Ahmanson (who financed AIS) and Nelson Bunker Hunt have both heavily contributed to The Chalcedon Institute, an organization that mandates Christian “dominion” over the world. Ahmanson is also one of the bagmen behind the extremist “Christian Reconstructionist” movement, which openly advocates a theocratic takeover of American democracy, placing the entire society under the “dominion” of “Christ the King.” This “dominion” includes the death penalty for homosexuals, exclusion of citizenship for non-Christians, stoning of sinners and — we kid you not — slavery, “one of the most beneficent of Biblical laws.”
Ahmanson also has major holdings in ES&S, whose former CEO is Republican Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska. When Hagel ran for office, his own company counted the votes; needless to say, his initial victory was reported as “an amazing upset.” Hagel still has a million-dollar stake in the parent company of ES&S. In Florida, Jeb Bush’s first choice for a running mate in his 1998 gubernatorial race was ES&S lobbyist Sandra Mortham, who made a mint installing the machines that counted Jeb’s votes.
According to U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel’s (R-NE) press office, in 1995 Hagel resigned as CEO of American Information Systems (AIS), the voting machine company that counted the votes in his first Senatorial election in 1996. In January 1996 Hagel resigned as president of McCarthy & Company, part of the McCarthy Group that are one of the current owners of Election Systems and Software (ES&S), which itself resulted from the merger of AIS and Business Records Corporation. According to Bev Harris, Hagel is still an investor in the McCarthy Group. ES&S is now the largest voting machine company in America and one of its largest owners is the ultra-conservative Omaha World-Herald Company.
According to Nebraska’s Elections Office, ES&S is the only voting machine company certified to count votes in the state. Twenty percent of the vote in Nebraska is hand-counted.

Footprints of Electoral Fraud: The November 2 Exit Poll Scam by Michael Keefer
Sequoia Voting Systems: appears to be the second largest voting machine company, accounting for about 1/3 of the voting machine market. As of May 2002, Sequoia was purchased by Great Britain’s De La Rue from Ireland’s Jefferson Smurfit Group, who retain a 15% share. Smurfit was just bought by Madison Dearborn Partners, a private equity investment firm. De La Rue owns 20% of the Great Britain’s national lottery. Sequoia also has a colorful history, most recently in Louisiana, where it was the center of a massive corruption case that sent top state officials to jail for bribery, most of it funneled through Mob-connected front firms. In 1995 the Security and Exchange Commission filed charges against four employees of Sequoia, alleging that they inflated revenue and pre-tax profits. In 1999 the Justice Department filed federal charges against employees of Sequoia alleging that during a 10-year period $8 million in bribes were paid out. Louisiana’s Commissioner of Elections Jerry Fowler had run up some big gambling debts in Atlantic City, according to reporter Daniel Hopsicker. In all, 22 people were indicted, 9 plead guilty. Fowler went to jail, but Pasquale “Rocco” Ricci of New Jersey got one year of home detention. Sequoia executives were also indicted, but escaped trial after giving immunized testimony against state officials. The British-owned company’s corporate parent is private equity firm Madison Dearborn — a partner of the Carlyle Group, where George Bush I makes millions trolling the world for war pork, privatizations and sweetheart deals with government insiders.

Election Company Has Long Criminal History
Science Applications International Corporation Fourth largest counter of votes behind the other three above. This shadowy defense contractor SAIC has jumped into the vote-counting game, both directly and through spinoffs by its top brass, including Admiral Bill Owens, former military aide to Dick Cheney and Carlyle honcho Frank Carlucci, and ex-CIA chief Robert Gates. SAIC’s history of fraud charges and security lapses in its electronic systems hasn’t prevented it from becoming one of the largest Pentagon and CIA contractors — and will doubtless pose little obstacle to its entrance into election engineering.
All of these companies are hardwired into the Bushist Party power grid — have been given billions of dollars by the Bush Regime to complete a sweeping computerization of voting machines nationwide by the 2004 election.
Choice Point The mad rush to install unverifiable computer voting is driven by the Help America Vote Act, signed by Bush last year. The chief lobbying group pushing for the act was a consortium of arms dealers — those disinterested corporate citizens — including Northop-Grumman and Lockheed-Martin. The bill also mandates that all states adopt the computerized “ineligible voter purge” system that Jeb used to eliminate 91,000 eligible black voters from the Florida rolls in 2000. The Republican-run private company that accomplished this electoral miracle, ChoicePoint, is bagging the lion’s share of the new Bush-ordered purge contracts.
Advanced Voting Solutions is the new name of another voting company, Shoup Voting Solutions. Their current top management, Howard Van Pelt and Larry Ensminger, were executives for Diebold-Global until last year. Officers of Shoup Voting Machine Co. were indicted for allegedly bribing politicians in Tampa, Florida in 1971, according to the San Francisco Business Times. Ransom Shoup was convicted in 1979 of conspiracy and obstruction of justice related to an FBI inquiry into a lever machine-counted election in Philadelphia. Shoup got a three-year suspended sentence. Meanwhile, Philadelphia has bought new voting machines from Danaher-Guardian, which appears to only sell voting machines formerly known as the “Shouptronic.”
Danaher-Guardian is owned by billionaire brothers Steven M. and Mitchell P. Rales, who were described by columnist Jack Anderson in 1988 as “a pair of corporate raiders out of Washington DC.” Again, Danaher-Guardian appears to only sell formerly Shouptronic voting machines.
Global Eye — Vanishing Act By Chris Floyd – The technology had a trial run in the 2002 midterm elections. In Georgia, serviced by new Diebold systems, a popular Democratic governor and senator were both unseated in what the media called “amazing” upsets, with results showing vote swings of up to 16 percent from the last pre-ballot polls. In computerized Minnesota, former Vice President Walter Mondale — a replacement for popular incumbent Paul Wellstone, who died days before the vote — was also defeated in a large last-second vote swing. Convenient “glitches” in Florida saw an untold number of votes intended for the Democratic candidate registering instead for Governor Jeb “L’il Brother” Bush. A Florida Democrat who lost a similarly “glitched” local election went to court to have the computers examined — but the case was thrown out by a judge who ruled that the innards of America’s voting machines are the “trade secrets” of the private companies who make them.

Vote Fraud: Only Chumps and Compulsive Gamblers Keep On Playing in a Rigged Game Posted by : DavidSwanson on Sunday, December 19, 2004 – As the Bush Machine rolls on — through Orwellian “Patriot” Acts, Intelligence “Reforms” and “Clear Skies” Initiatives, adding treason to treason, felony to felony, unconstitutional domestic acts to violations of international law, “crimes against all humankind” to crimes against the biosphere; as it authorizes torture, domestic surveillance, and terms the Geneva Convention “quaint” — progressive pundits waffle on with exhortations to hopefulness, ideological mea culpas, adjurations to linguistic reframing, advocating emulations of the right, and statistical analyses based on flawed polling and fraudulent vote counts, I find myself wondering: How long are these people going to keep on playing in a rigged game?

Schwarzenegger is Chosen
to be the next governor of California. No, not by the voters of California but by Karl Rove and the Illuminati. No wonder Arnuld isn’t debating. He has no need to. The people that are controlling the elections in America today have made their choice. There are already 2 bills before Congress to amend the constitution to allow foreign born citizens to become president. Meanwhile, Cruz Bustamante is feeling the Zionist heat. This whole recall election is just another example of democracy being stolen. Call a special election to get the voters to the polls where Diebold and ES&S will count their votes. The election results are in the Diebold bag. Arnuld is due to join the criminal cabal that has obtained office through election fraud such as:
Wayne Allard Sen.(R-CO), Saxby Chambliss Sen.(R-GA), Norm Coleman Sen.(R-MN), Chuck Hagel Sen.(R-NE), Katherine Harris – Rep.(R-FL), Sonny Perdue Gov.(R-GA), John E. Sununu -Sen.(R-NH), Jeb Bush Gov.(R-FL) not to mention Dick and Dubya and their henchmen.
Download mail-in ballots for the California election from MoveOn.org’s website. This is one way to defeat the Diebold voting machines.

CONCERNED COMPUTER EXPERTS UNITE!
Letter from concerned citizen: The evidence is becoming clear that Republicans politicians, administrators, and partisans are systematically working together to block efforts to make printed paper ballots part of the DRE systems for the November elections. The only logical explanation to me is that they want for it to be possible for Bush partisans (which include DRE manufacturers) to steal the election. That should not sound far-fetched if one is aware of all that went on in Florida in 2000.
I am in contact with computer experts in Texas who might be in a position to detect and thwart any attempt to use Trojan Horse code in DRE software that can be used to steal votes. If you know somebody in Texas or any other state who is a computer expert and who is concerned about this issue, please feel free to pass on this email to them with my invitation to get in touch with me. Putting our knowledge together and working together, we might be able to uncover and thwart what appears to be a conspiracy to steal the November election. We need to make the effort.

Two Voting Companies & Two Brothers Will Count 80% Of The U.S. Election -Using BOTH Scanners & Touchscreens By Lynn Landes – Once again we are witness to an ‘eyes closed, hands off’ approach to protecting America.

But when she checked the county’s Web site for an update half an hour later, she found a startling development: Gore’s count had dropped by 16,000 votes, while an obscure Socialist candidate had picked up 10,000–all because of a single precinct with only 600 voters.”

Typical was Cincinnati, Ohio where votes were bundled up immediately after the polls closed and sent to a mysterious central computer room to be counted by secret computer codes. To add insult to injury, the votes were counted away from the watchful eye of the entire electorate and the press.

WHO OWNS DIEBOLD? And who owns Election Systems & Software? – Bob Urosevich is the CEO of Diebold Election Systems. Urosevich created the original software architecture for Diebold Election Systems, and his original company, called I-Mark Systems, can be found in the source code signatures. Prior to programming for and taking over Diebold Election Systems, Urosevich programmed for and was CEO of Election Systems & Software (ES&S), which counts 56 percent of the votes in the United States. When Urosevich left ES&S, Chuck Hagel took his position. (Hagel then ran for the U.S. Senate, with ES&S machines counting his own votes, but failed to disclose that he had been both CEO and Chairman of ES&S on his disclosure documents). Bob Urosevich, together with his brother Todd, founded ES&S. Bob then went to run Diebold, while Todd still is a Vice President at ES&S. Diebold and ES&S, together, count about 80 percent of the votes in the United States.

Offshore Company Captures Online Military Vote by Lynn Landes 7/16/03 – Accenture is the leading offshore beneficiary of government contracts whose main business is the privatization of government services, according to Lee Drutman of Citizen Works, a non-profit founded by Ralph Nader.

[You trust Dick Cheney to count the military votes properly don’t you? -ed.]
Who Counts the Votes? – This is why hundreds of computer experts, including many of the top experts in the world on electronic voting and computer security have signed our “Resolution on Electronic Voting,” which calls for a “Voter Verifiable Audit Trail” that can be recounted by hand to check that the machines have recorded the votes properly.
Computerized voting machines were used to steal the 2002 Senate election – Jeb Bush was sued, and was supposed to have returned these voters to the rolls, and did not, which explains his last re-election. The Republicans have something far worse in mind for the next presidential election and Democrats need to be prepared. The recent elections of Nebraska Republican Chuck Hagel, the loss in Georgia of Max Cleland, wildly popular Vietnam vet, and the victory of Alabama Governor Bob Riley, along with a handful of other Republican victories, (all predicted to have been losers by straw polls which our nation has refined to a high-art) points to an ominous source: corporate-programmed, computer-controlled, modem-capable voting machine, recording and tabulating ballots.
Voting machines scrutinized Hopkins study reports Maryland’s flawed, could be manipulated From Staff Reports – “As a result, many of the conclusions drawn by the researchers are inaccurate or incomplete with respect to the security of this particular element of Diebold’s voting system,” the company said.

How the Back-door was discovered in the voting machines! – Such a system would enable you to intervene in precisely the minimum number of races necessary to ensure that you won a majority on election night. On the basis of polling you could pick your marginal seats and thus keep your tweaking to a bare minimum.
Such a system would enable you to minimise the risks of discovery of your activities.
Such a system would enable you to target and remove individual political opponents who were too successful, too popular or too inquisitive.
And most importantly of all, such a system would enable you to accomplish all the above without the public being in the least aware of what you were doing. When confronted with the awfulness of your programme they would be forced to concede that at least it is the result of a democratic process.

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER / JEB BUSH 2008
Oct. 1, 2007 Governor Schwarzenegger today made an announcement that he would be making a run for the White House along with Jeb Bush as his running mate. As you know, a foreign born citizen can now become president since the Republican led Congress passed Amendment 27 in 2004.
He was quoted as saying …

[Ed. Note: Some of the information in this article may not seem relevant since the media has started to (under)report anti-war protests and the Voter News Service has closed down (temporarily) The point is, what people are doing IS making the government change its tactics. ‘They’ are very interested in how much you know. Knowledge + Action = power. The power is truly with the people to effect change. As soon as the sheeple wake up and realize what is happening, and start doing something about it, they will be transformed into lions]
It appears that the democratic process in the United States is in serious trouble.
We have a blackout by the media on anti-war rallies. And of anything anti-Bush for that matter. If you don’t believe this go attend a rally next time one is held. Then try reading the newspapers the next day, or watching the news that night. See if it is even mentioned.
When 200,000 people surrounded the White House in November, 2002 most newspapers didn’t’t even mention it. Those that did reported a poor showing of less than 10,000 people. And when 500,000 people came out in protest in Florence, Italy on November 9, 2002, was it even mentioned in the US press?
We have election coverage bias, when a media focuses on issues that favor one party over another and which affect the outcome of an election.
We have the CIA manipulating the Free press since the 1950’s [search operation Mockingbird on Google]
We have the people that count the votes, the Voter News Service, (VNS) being a top-secret private consortium owned by ABC News, The Associated Press, CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and NBC News.
We have voting machines which are made by Republican controlled companies. One such company, ES&S, had a corporate president that decided to run for congress the following year and won. Although never having served in public office prior to that. [Link: Did God Tell Them To Steal The Votes?]
We have electronic voting machines that are neither independently audited nor is the counting process reviewed by anyone outside the privately held company.
We have voting machines where people are allowed to dial into them by modem and do… who knows what with the results.
It looks to me that maybe Voxfux is right, that we are being lied to by polls that fraudulently show a lot of Bush support. [Link: Polls Showing Support for Bush are Fraudulent] And I would venture to guess that most of the polls that showed close election races were bogus also. Since the Republican party was started 140 years ago, no mid term election has ever had the incumbent party pick up seats in the senate when they controlled the White House. Just coincidence? And every time we have had a recession the party that is in power has been voted out of office. Are we in a recession now? Yes. Did the American people vote the Republicans out of office? I say Yes. Did the votes gets tallied correctly? Therein lies the problem.
I think it is safe to assume that as the election process gets “cleaned up” and goes to more and more automated systems like the ones mentioned above, that we will hear less and less about election irregularities. That is, as the Voter News Service does away with any paper trail that can get in their way. This is in stark contrast to many countries such as Canada and Japan who count, easy to read, paper ballots by hand. It is reported that Canada hand counted all of their ballots in 4 hours in a recent national election. I also feel that a lot of the election irregularities are designed to be a smoke screen to shift attention away from the core problem of the electronic tallies being manipulated.
I would venture to say that in the United States, both the elections of 2000 and 2002 have not yielded accurate results. With all the manipulation that has occurred, I’ll go way out on a limb and predict that GW will be re-elected for another 4 years come 2004. I would also make a fairly safe prediction that the Republican party will remain in control of Congress after that election also. ( I correctly predicted Republicans gaining control of the senate and keeping the house in 2002 mid term elections. It didn’t take much to predict that believe me. Nor this one)
What is it called when a powerful group of men who control the media manipulate the election process to put their own candidate in office? I know what it is called in other countries, it is called America’s foreign policy. But when it takes place in the United States does that make Bush a dictator or what? I am not sure what to call his regime. I just think of it as a darkness that has descended over the land. Editor Nov. 16, 2002
Note: Bush knew weeks before the outcome of the 2002 elections that the republicans had the Senate elections in the bag. See this article for more. What will happen in 2008. It will be Jeb Bush for president of course. He is a shoe in for the presidency because by then all the voting machines in the whole country will be electronic. We won’t be able to vote either of the terrorists out of office, unless we have a Boston Tea Party with the voting machines.

ANATOMY OF A STOLEN ELECTION
First, selection of winner is chosen by Rothschilds or other illuminati group. This is typically done well advance of any primaries.
Next, all appearances of a ‘fair election’ take place. However in the background the Zionist controlled media is secretly favoring certain candidates while blackballing others. Various opinion polls emerge, mostly phoney. When there is an obvious landslide election to take place as was Bush’s 2004 election and Howards 2007 election, the opinion polls show a last minute swing leading to a close race as election time nears.
Various CIA types are busy programming the machines that count the votes.
Then you have actual voting. There may be physical obstacles that emerge at the polling places like insufficient number of voting machines in predominantly democratic precincts, ballot stuffing, lost bundles of ballots, fictitious mail-in ballots.
Next the party in power counts the votes. Results can be punched in while using optical scanners to count ballots. After the ‘close election’ with the unexplained ‘last minute swing’ to the Rothschild selected candidate, that candidate is declared the winner.
The sheeple declare that next election they will win.
