If you think the Conservatards are out of the ballot box stuffing business, think again!

August 27, 2006

It seems that our “liberal” U.S. media totally missed a little bit of ballot box stuffing and blatant disregard of the rights of all citizens of the United States of America. Dennis Hastert decided to swear in a Conservatard “elected” official before all the ballots were officially verified.

It took the reporting from an independent newspaper in New Zeeland called the Scoop of all places to bring the latest Conservatard vote rigging to stand up in the light.ballot_waste.jpg

The article was written by Michael Collins on Friday, 25 August 2006, 10:45 pm and is titled “Congressional Election Nullified – Nobody Noticed”

The 20,000 foot view of what is going on I think is better summed up by the author:

“On June 6, 2006 Republican Brian Bilbray allegedly slightly outpolled Democrat Francine Busby in the special election for California’s 50th Congressional District, despite Busby’s lead in the polls going into the election. There were immediate cries of foul following the election due to major irregularities, including electronic voting machines sent out to the homes and cars of volunteers for up to 12 days prior to the election, and irregular election results like huge mega-precincts of absentee ballots where turnout was thousands of percent more than registered voters..”

“On June 13, 2006, Bilbray flew to Washington, DC and was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives by House Speaker Dennis Hastert.”

“On August 22, 2006 the defendants moved to dismiss, arguing that the swearing in of Bilbray deprives everyone else of jurisdiction including specifically the San Diego Superior Court because Art. I, sec. 5 of the US Constitution have been held to mean that the House and Senate are the judges of the Qualifications of their Members, one of those qualifications is supposed to be “election.””

“There is some thing very wrong with this sequence. Elections are not complete, anywhere, until they are officially certified by local authorities. How can a citizen get sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives before his or her election is certified? Only Speaker Dennis Hastert, his team, and Bilbray have the answer. “

Mr. Collins summary of the entire sorted incident is:

“We’re clearly at the point where members of the ruling party are making up rules post hoc to justify whatever actions they wish to take. We are also at a point where there is little if any opposition to this. The House is silent. With the exception of local and national voting rights activists and Chairman Dean, the opposing party is silent. The Defendants literally argue that the Courts are powerless to stop them (without jurisdiction). Friday will reveal whether the courts are powerless to stop this abuse of power and premature termination of elections.”

Mr. Conservatards summary is that the very right of the American voters is in danger due to Conservatards stuffing the ballot boxes and snatching power. The Conservatards have been pressing that all US voting districts to use these electronic voting machines that do not leave a voting trail. Heck I don’t blame them. If I was part of a failed political strategy and most voters hated me, I would start looking for alternatives to free elections as well.

It has been proven time and time again that these proprietary voting machines are not tamper proof. In fact it only take rudimentary programming skills to change the software, especially if you have direct unsupervised access to the machines for up to 12 days like in the California 50th congressional voting district.

When will the American media start covering things like this? I know that most Americans really only care about who is winning on Survivor, what the Hollywood Stars are doing, and if their sports team is doing well.

It comes to the point that your basic freedoms are being taken away from you by a very small group of elite Conservatards. A group of Conservatards that do not represent the best interests of the American public. It is time to wake up and start paying attention to the misdeeds of those currently in power. These are the same politicians that are abusing the powers that “We the People” give to them.

    why would they be out of the business when its been working so well for them?! ultimately, no matter how the “conservatards” cheat, the people, be it canadian, american, british or whomever, are the ones handing them the power one way or another. the illusion of democracy is the only thing keeping the neo-cons in power. it is only a question of whether this illusion is realized before “America” becomes synomous with “terror”. it is only when the people have said “it can’t happen to us” that the germanys of the 1930s and 40s become possible.
