In November 2008, voters will go to the polls and choose the next president of the United States and their representatives to Congress – or will they? Bush and his handlers are in the process of ensuring a Republican president in 2008. Already underway, is a massive and diabolic plan to steal the election by every means possible. In charge is Karl Rove.
While the U.S. media is fascinated by the drunken revels of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, a British journalist, Greg Palast, a New York Times bestselling author and a journalist for the British Broadcasting Corporation as well as the British newspaper The Observer, is the LONE voice investigating and exposing the Republican plot to steal the election.
Why is Bush so concerned about the Gonzales’ firing of Federal prosecuters? “It’s not,” says Palast, “about loyalty to Bush, which is what The New York Times wrote. The administration team couldn’t tolerate appointees who wouldn’t go along with the crime of disenfranchising voters. Palast presents evidence that in the last presidential election, Karl Rove directed a guy named Tim Griffin to target suppressing the votes of African American students, homeless men, and soldiers. Nice guy. They actually challenged the votes and successfully removed tens of thousands of legal voters from the voter rolls, same as they did in 2000. But instead of calling them felons, they said that they had suspect addresses. And in 2006 and 2004, they challenged tens of thousands of black soldiers. They stopped their votes from being counted when they were mailed in from Baghdad. Go to Baghdad and lose your vote – mission accomplished.: By sending letters to the homes of soldiers, marked “do not forward.” When they came back undelivered, they said: Aha! Illegal voter registered from a false address. And when their ballot came in from Fallujah, it was challenged. The soldier didn’t know it. Their vote was lost. Over half a million votes were challenged and lost by the Republicans – absentee ballots. Three million voters who went to the polls found themselves challenged by the Republicans. This was not a small operation. It was a multi-million dollar, wholesale theft operation.” “In Florida,” says Palast, “Katherine Harris and Jeb Bush targeted 97,000 registered voters, as it turned out, to remove from the voter rolls on the grounds that they were criminals. They were “guilty of voting black.” By the way, of out of the 97,000 people, do you know how many they charged with actually voting illegally? Of the 97,000 names that they had? Zero. They looked at six cases and brought no charges. There were only six suspected cases, out of 97,000. That’s how sick that was. And the U.S. press – Fox TV – said not one voter was wrongly disenfranchised.”
Palast continues,” Russell Pearce, a Republican legislator from Arizona, who said five million illegal aliens crossed the border to vote for Democrats – five million. I asked this fruitcake to give me five names. I said, “If they voted, that means that you have their names. You have their registrations. So why aren’t you arresting them?” And that’s when I began to smell the Rove plan. He said, “Oh, the U.S. attorneys are going to arrest them.” But there was not one case brought in New Mexico by the honest attorney. Not one case where there’s an honest U.S. attorney. And by the way, they did find about a half dozen illegal aliens who had registered to vote in Arizona. They were registered by the Republican Party.”
It’s a sad commentary on the state of American journalism, when a BRITISH investigative reporter has to expose plans to steal the next U.S.election. Not only sad, but frightening.
