Federal Judge Cites Voting Rights Act to Rig Election in New York State

(KurtNimmo) – Remember when Rand Paul said he opposed aspects of the Voting Rights Act? Paul was taken to the woodshed by the corporate media and made out to be a racist for his opposition. Gremlins came out of the woodwork and lambasted him, including well-paid gremlins over at the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post.

“This is the worst possible way Paul could have introduced himself to the nation at this particular moment,” Greg Sargent wrote after MSNBC’s Maddow sideswiped Paul. “It comes, of course, at a time when the Tea Partiers are adamantly insisting their movement hasn’t been hijacked by intolerants and extremists. It comes as the GOP is trying to shake its image as a regional, culturally-backward party.”

In the enlightened state of New York the Voting Rights Act is now being used to accomplish what some liberals might consider culturally-forward to their “progressive” way of looking at things — allowing certain residents to vote more than once in order to fix the result of an election.

Video: Corporate Media Follows Government Orders, Runs Defense For Etheridge Assault

(PaulWatson) – Petrified that a couple of college kids with a flip camera can change the course of a state election, the corporate media and the neo-lib establishment has gone into overdrive in an attempt to spin the Bob Etheridge assault controversy, with some even trying to turn reality on its head in claiming Etheridge was the one being assaulted.

Despite the fact that Etheridge’s shameful reaction to merely being asked, “Do you fully support the Obama agenda?” by a couple of unknown college kids has enraged Internet viewers across the board, the corporate clowns at MSNBC and the rest of the libtard apologists immediately went to work in a lame effort to absolve Etheridge of blame, after being ordered to do so by talking points issued by a Democratic Party official.

Top Recipient of Political Cash from BP, Goldman Sachs, Defense Contractors AND Healthcare Giants: Barack Obama

(WashingtonsBlog) – Politico reports:

BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Obama also had the most political contributions from Goldman Sachs in 2008 of all senators. And Goldman gave more to Obama than any other presidential candidate, and was Obama’s second-largest contributor.

In addition, Obama was the top congressional recipient of defense industry contributions for the 2008 election cycle. See this, this and this.

Obama was also the top recipient of money from the healthcare giants in the presidential election.

Britain’s Election: Welcome to No Choice Democracy – Finian Cunningham

(GlobalResearch) – British voters go to the polls on Thursday in a general election that promises to be historic – for all the wrong reasons.

Firstly, voter turnout threatens to hit a post-Second World War record low. Over the past six decades, the percentage of eligible Britons casting their vote has steadily fallen from 80-70 per cent to around 60 per cent. With public apathy and antipathy towards the three main political parties – the incumbent Labour government, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats – running at all-time highs, there is a real prospect that the British general election of 2010 will see as many citizens forfeiting their democratic right as those turning out to vote.

The ‘ugly’ truth – a general election or the election of a general and what democracy truly is!

(TPUC) – The general election – why are you electing a new general – a general over what you might ask? It is very simple. Maybe you are electing a new general over the legion(s). The truth is you are not electing anyone and it has all been sorted out in advance, because it would never be allowed to be down to just CHANCE!! The election is nothing more than a stage show to make you think you live in a democracy and you think by voting you are taking part. Sorry complete rubbish! Continue reading

Don’t Look Now, But We’re Winning

(JimmyOnTheSpot) – It’s happening. We weren’t sure how, when, or where it would happen, but it is. What exactly is “it”? Allow me a few moments to explain.

With the 2010 elections on the horizon, I’m seeing a lot more people involved in the process this time around. I post comments in a number of different sites and the conclusion is becoming overwhelmingly similar. People no longer trusting either the Republicans or Democrats and are seeking alternatives.

Carpe Diem, Dr. Paul!

(LewRockwell) – Ron Paul’s stunning landslide victory in the CPAC straw poll is an event that cannot be allowed to go to waste. Political moments this ripe are about as rare as the California condor, and Ron Paul would do us all an incalculable service if he would seize the day, and declare his intention to run in the 2012 presidential election. He needs to do this right now. Not next month, not next year, but now. Continue reading

Analysis Finds Little Evidence Iranian Public Sees Government as Illegitimate

Indications of fraud in the June 12 Iranian presidential election, together with large-scale street demonstrations, have led to claims that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad did not actually win the election, and that the majority of Iranians perceive their government as illegitimate and favor regime change.

An analysis of multiple polls of the Iranian public from three different sources finds little evidence to support such conclusions. Read More Here

Corporations are not people and money is not speech

(AlethoNews) – In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned century-old restrictions on corporate spending in elections under the guise of protecting First Amendment free speech rights. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority, said, “If the First Amendment has any force, it prohibits Congress from fining or jailing citizens, or associations of citizens, for simply engaging in political speech.” This argument of the majority decision rests on the notions that corporations are covered by the same free speech protections as individual citizens and that campaign donations or financing are the same as speech.

Democracy in America Is a Useful Fiction

Corporate forces, long before the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, carried out a coup d’état in slow motion. The coup is over. We lost. The ruling is one more judicial effort to streamline mechanisms for corporate control. It exposes the myth of a functioning democracy and the triumph of corporate power. But it does not significantly alter the political landscape. The corporate state is firmly cemented in place. Continue reading

The Supremes Bow to King Corporation – Ralph Nader

Yesterday’s 5-4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission shreds the fabric of our already weakened democracy by allowing corporations to more completely dominate our corrupted electoral process. It is outrageous that corporations already attempt to influence or bribe our political candidates through their political action committees (PACs), which solicit employees and shareholders for donations.

Video: Scott Brown Election Win A Massive Rebellion Against Big Government

(PaulWatson) – Scott Brown’s stunning underdog victory over Democrat Martha Coakley to become Massachusetts’ next U.S. Senator is a crushing blow for the Obama administration’s big government agenda – not because Brown has an R next to his name, and not because of Judas goats like Glenn Beck who will attempt to hijack genuine populism once again – but because his victory was thanks to the 51% of Independents who are now the majority in the state.
