Ain’t hindsight wonderful. When you look at the enormous effort to discredit the Democrats over Bill Clinton’s lack of self control and predatory sexual behavior, using what’s seen by many as an appalling misuse of Kenneth Starr’s position on the ‘Office of the Independent Counsel’, with the help of Linda Tripp, another Republican lackey, who somehow gets involved with Monica Lewinsky, to immobilize the Clinton Presidency, you wonder, is this what Democracy is about?
But it still took (in my opinion and many others) a corrupt election, with the aid of George W Bush’s brother, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, as well as Florida’s Secretary of State Katherine Harris, FOX TV (Rupert Murdoch) and the Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, to ensure that all the hard work of Karl Rove came to fruition.
All this was done so that Paul Wolfowitz and Co. could mount an attack on Iraq, who was falsely blamed both for 911 and having WMDs, just so they could get troops into Iraq, thereby controlling Iraq’s oil and giving them an added presence in the Middle East, with which it could control the various local area pipelines, and later mount further attacks on Iran and Afghanistan.
However, it was the BBC’s show Spooks that most eloquently put it all together for me. In the episode known as ‘Aftermath’, where Britain and America planned use climate change to their economic advantage, by the use of military force to capture major fuel sources such as coal and oil.
The plot went on to make the point, the various governments were going to only make a pretense of doing something about fighting global climate change, in actual fact they were going to let the world go to hell, and they were going to use their military might to ensure that they were in total control, and that a good percentage of the world’s population would perish… personally I always thought they would accomplish much the same by some sort of engineered Bird flu or what ever, it is after all, too many people that is at the root of all our problems.
So I guess in the next few years we’ll see if those who think like myself are right.

So much for American democracy. A nation that prided it’s self on being ‘The Democracy’… doesn’t make voting an obligation, ironically, because of a constitution that’s now null ‘n void.
The irony is, they are paying big bucks for the voting machines which it seems has put an end to any hope of a true democracy. Is it any wonder that it brings tears to those who thought there was corruption of the voting system… when finally their worst fears were realized.

If you are unsure of whether or not to trust someone, it’s the body language I watch when I’m suspicious, and I’m also taking into consideration, other factors, such as if I know they have lied before or if they have a reason to lie.
In relation to Diebold and the Republicans, I’d say that, giving them the benefit of doubt would be, to say the least, wrong headed and at the worst, the end of democracy in the US, even though the lobbyist pretty much run the show either way, whether you vote Republican or Democrats… so why the urgency in steeling the elections?

How much proof does one need to have a thorough investigation done on these US vote counting machines?
This is tantamount to a take over of the American government, by the wealthy elite minority… democracy is dead in the US it seems, and they have the hide to criticize Zimbabwe’s Mugabe!

The only possible reason for an election to be falsified, is because someone has a vested interest in doing things that the majority of voters, or even non voters, would not want to happen… in a true democracy, it’s what the majority want that counts. Actually I’ll add to that last point, in a true democracy, it’s what the majority of the informed citizens want that counts, but since the majority of the media is controlled by the minority, who have a vested interest in maintaining the citizens ignorance, the majority are at a severe disadvantage.
OK I hear some of you say… Oh no not more conspiracy stuff. Well my answer to you is, what, do you think the minority is going to risk their positions to decisions made by the majority?
Do you think that the WMDs was a genuine mistake?
Do you think that you have heard the truth about 911? No I’m not saying it was an inside job per say, but with most crimes you have to look at who stood to gain from it. Well lets look at that, it’s a fair guess that the military industrialists gained probably a trillion dollars out of the ‘war on terror’.
The oil companies and Halliburton also benefited, I mean they now control Iraq’s oil and the value for their oil’s skyrocketed. The security side of things has also been improved as far as the minority is concerned… Blackwater is doing fine and the US Bill of rights and constitution has been flushed down the toilet by the Patriot Act.
But those who benefited most is the state of Israel and the big Banks, who are largely run by the Zionists. Most of the prompting and planning for the Iraq war was done long before 911, as indeed was the scrapping of the US Bill of rights and constitution… done largely by another Zionist Paul Wolfowitz and co.
Personally I believe the most likely culprits for 911 was Mossad. Saddam was no threat to the US… that’s a joke, what he was going to attack the US with Scud missiles with a range of barely 1,000km. No Saddam was a threat to Israel, just like Iran, not a big threat, but a threat nun the less. And an America as a true democracy is also a big threat to the minority.
Bev Harris and her co-investigators are outstanding Americans and should be supported. If you look carefully at the body language of Senator Kerry and those around him, in the context of what was happening. you can see there is something else afoot… remember also Kerry is like George W Bush a Skull & Bones man.

Man if there ever was an oxymoron, ‘clean coal’ is it… what a load of bullshit.
This is what ‘clean coal’ is about, it’s about greed and phoney capitalism, it’s about a bunch of people who’s capitalism can’t get passed either digging it out of the ground, chopping it down or bribing politicians into selling public assets, because when it comes down to it, like I said they are nothing but phoney capitalists, they couldn’t build or design something new and worthwhile, they have to resort to skulduggery to take more than they’ll ever need, they are for the most part addicted to greed and don’t have the balls to make an honest living.
Today I heard our (Australian Labor) Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (aka Kevin Dud) intimate that ‘Clean Coal’ was the future and that selling of our state electrical power utility was the way to go… words fail me, well maybe not. Lets look at their reasons.
Apparently a government can build a public utility, but apparently it can’t run it efficiently? Basically they are admitting that they are incompetent, and they are trying to tell us that private enterprise would do it better, they could raise the funds and do a better job of it… who would you sooner loan money to, a government or a privet company? what a bunch of morons.
This is what will happen if the power utility is sold. First thing that will happen is there will be layoffs, maintenance will be cut back, the price of electricity will go up and the supply will become unreliable… the same sort of thing that happened in California will happen here. The other thing that will probably happen is the coal companies will probably buy the power utilities and it will be the end of alternative energies and meeting the Kyoto limits.
If they had any balls they would put it to a referendum, but they won’t because they know it would be shot down… so much for ‘democracy’ eh?

Man I’m finding it hard to believe that ‘the world’s biggest Democracy’ would allow the electronic voting machine farce to go on like this. Here we have Mark Radke, the Marketing Director of Diebold Inc. speaking about Diebold. Well I don’t know about you, but I would never trust a Marketing Director, whom I did not personally know to be honest… and I definitely do not trust this guy considering the circumstances.
Diebold Inc. and some of it’s executives were major Republican fund raisers. On 14th August 2003 Walden W O’dell, the CEO of Diebold had written a fund raising letter, effectively telling George W Bush that he was “committed to helping Ohio deliver it’s electoral votes to the President next year.”… this is totally unbelievable, the CEO of Diebold actually was it seems, stupid enough to put this in writing!?
The other Diebold guy you see here is Robert Urosevich, on the 21 April 2004 at the Sacramento Voting Systems & Procedures Panel Public Hearing. Just check out his body language… pure arrogance in my opinion, and he continues with the barefaced lies about their code being stolen (allegedly by Bev Harris I assume), using room temperature IQ homilies… hey he must have been a Ronald Reagan fan.
All I get from these Diebold guys, is that they are reasonably crafted at trotting out the usual bullshit one hears from politicians and Lawyers (spit on the ground). A lot of homilies, generalities, clichés and word play, but no plain truth.
The other thing that this bit of footage makes plain, is that it matters little whether it’s the Republican or Democrats in power, sure the Republicans are further to the right and support the Rich more, but the point is, the US government, as is the Supreme Court, is effectively owned lock stock and barrel by the Banks, and the only way I see this situation being turned around, is for Americans to get off their asses and vote intelligently, not just for their own sakes, but for the rest of the planet, because we just can’t afford to have these criminals in charge of a military, that is so powerful and dangerous… ‘your government’ is sociopathic, and I for one am sick and tired of hearing the total bullshit, that “America is the world’s biggest Democracy”.

John Nash’s premise, that success could only be gotten by suspicion and self interest, received creditability I believe, because of the ‘divide and conquer’ proposition adopted, ironically by the Rand Corporation.
The corporations benefit from this, again ironically by cooperatively ganging up on the majority of citizens… with the help of their politicians, who are for the most part corrupt, incompetent and stupid, and who tell us in the west, ceaselessly how good and important ‘democracy’ really is, and why we must reduce taxes for the corporations; who’s profits grow whilst we lose ever more services, and whilst they go on paying the corporations trillions of dollars to protect our now obviously nonexistent ‘democracies’.

Sooo much of what Kay says sounds not only plausible, but likely… it fits with so much that we know historically and it’s logical when viewed, through the ‘who’s making the money’ perspective.
OK about now the doubting Thomasis are carping on about conspiracy nuts. Well my answer to that is to first define conspiracy – A secret plan to achieve an evil or illegal end.
Now if you don’t think that the 3 Trillion odd dollars spent on the ‘War on Terror’ in Iraq; a country that had absolutely nothing to do with 911, is going to end up in the pockets of a handful of corporations run by an even smaller number of Banks and Finance organizations, and that the people running these organizations aren’t virtually untouchable and are run by fundamentally decent law abiding people, you must be on Prozac or something, really.
If you are paying attention, then you will have observed that the rich are getting much richer, the middle class; who could be wiped out by another ’29 type crash, is shrinking and the lower class is ever expanding, and that the ultimate end point for this ‘system’, must be that the planet will be controlled, literally, by a handful of people and that democracy will be even more irrelevant than it is now. Now do you really propose that that’s not by design, that conspiracy doesn’t describe that process?

But First Robert Fisk speaks at Frontline Club New York Event
John Pilger “The Invisible Government” Part 1/4
There are a number of unforgivable crimes against humanity. Pedophilia, ethnic cleansing, political lies (more the norm than the exception), doctors harming their patients, Lawyers (spit on the ground) selling out or making no effort on behalf of their clients; we have in Australia at least 2 innocent men executed because of their Lawyers (spit on the ground), Police that are corrupt, Military personnel who kill innocent civilians (this seems to be the norm now) and finally last but not the least, Media not investigating and reporting but instead partaking in Propergander.
The latter is of critical importance to citizens in a democracy, because in a true democracy, a citizen is dependent on accurate reporting, to enable citizens to make an informed decision.
