November Democrat Wins Evidence of Conspiracy

Don't be so sure that victories by Democrats in the national Congressional elections will mean that the direct recording electronic voting machines (whose security and reliability have been questioned) accurately recorded and counted electronic (paperless) ballots.

If we can be made to believe a solely Republican conspiracy to hack electronic voting machines nationwide produced mostly Republican wins in 2004, including the presidency of the United States, we can believe a twist on the conspiracy to fraud any one of our American elections.

That twist would in 2006 yield just enough Democrat wins in November 2006 to satisfy Democrats hungry for a takeover of Congress. Such a win would maintain the ordered chaos rampant in American politics since long before year 2000 presidential election.

Democrats will win big, but not the entire House of Representatives, and not the Senate.

Close, close, close, close... (See Hardball Nov. 2: “Hardball” host Chris Matthews asks Charlie Cook, Stu Rothenberg, Howard Fineman and Larry Sabato about their predictions for the midterm elections)

Who's to say the polling as well isn't a conspiracy to get the nation focused on the the possibility of a big takeover, too close to call, for months, weeks, days, then whammo, not a big enough win, maybe just two seats shy of a Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.

Who would do such a thing? Who has the power to control electronic paperless voting machines, media, mainstream newspapers, polling firms?

Why is the CFR publishing...

Would there be significant policy shifts if Democrats regained control?

U.S. Public Rejects Using Military Force to Promote Democracy Rejects Democratization as Rationale for Iraq War September 29, 2005

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans reject the idea of using military force to promote democracy. Only 35% favored using military force to overthrow dictators. Less than one in five favored the US threatening to use military force if countries do not institute democratic reforms.

...The poll, a joint project of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations and the Program on International Policy Attitudes, was conducted by Knowledge Networks September 15-21 with a nationwide sample of 808 respondents (margin of error +/-3.5-4%).

Question everything. Who is (was) John Diebold, and why are Diebold Voting Machines at the heart of the mistrust of electronic paperless voting?

Don't think an election-frauding-stealing conspiracy can be grand enough to include Republicans and Democrats, notably members of the same grand-scheme organizations?

Then, you're just what they want. Mired in two-partypartisan politics, starry-eyed over George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John F. Kerry, Hillary Clinton, on and on and on...

Who is the user? (Technical and Organizational Concerns for Error Handling)
By Edward G Nilges

Of course, Diebold turned out to be just a higher class whore, for the election systems of his company are completely without transparency or controls and are still under investigation in both Florida and Ohio, for they may have "fixed" the Presidential elections of 2001 and 2004.

Diebold Election Systems
, a subsidiary of Diebold that accounts for 2.4% of its gross revenue, has entered the business of creating electronic voting terminals and solutions for government entities. Diebold entered this industry in 2001 by purchasing the assets of Global Election Systems which had been selling election equipment since 1991. This subsidiary has been the subject of controversy amid allegations surrounding the security and reliability of some of its products.

No Doctored DRE
Democrats use computer hysteria to get out the vote.

Tuesday, July 27, 2004 12:01 a.m. EDT

BOSTON--You don't have to go far here to find a Democrat who says the 2000 election was stolen. John Kerry is one of them. He claims a million African-Americans nationwide had their votes stolen and he won't let it happen again.

On Sunday, he followed that up by saying that his legal SWAT team is looking at "each and every district" with possible voting problems: "We may or may not be bringing challenges publicly in the course of the next few weeks," he said in Ohio. He mentioned that in Florida some voters are being removed from the rolls if they didn't respond to a letter from election officials. Since many states routinely send such mailings to those who haven't voted in years, we are in for an avalanche of litigation if that's the level of scrutiny Mr. Kerry is applying. He might even have to ask former trial lawyer John Edwards to lend a hand.

Many delegates here buy into a more bizarre conspiracy theory: that unscrupulous "Manchurian Programmers" could manipulate the new electronic voting machines that 35 million Americans will use in November. They note that Walden O'Dell, the CEO of Diebold Election Systems, sent a personal fund-raising letter last year to Republicans stating his goal was "helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president." This month, held rallies in 19 states to demand that new electronic machines print paper receipts to ensure an accurate count, something only Nevada will be able to implement by November. Democratic State Rep. Chris Smith of Florida says he is using concerns that votes will be lost or manipulated as a get-out-the-vote tool for John Kerry: "I tell them to bring an extra person to the polls."

It's true some states have moved too quickly using new federal money to buy Direct Recording Electronic voting machines (DREs), which work like an ATM. Several states have reported software failures, and California officials have accused Diebold of using uncertified software and misleading them. But exaggerating the problems with DREs will only fuel a litigation mindset that could make Florida 2000 look like a moot court.

Democrats lead in US election-Reuters poll By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Voters strongly favor Democratic candidates over Republicans in the Nov. 7 congressional election and harbor growing doubts about the Iraq war and the country's future, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released Thursday.

Two weeks before voters decide which party controls the U.S. Congress, Republicans trail Democrats among independents and are still struggling to shore up their base conservative supporters, the poll found.

Democrats have an 11-point edge, 44 percent to 33 percent, when voters are asked which party's candidate they will support, up slightly from a 9-point lead in the last Reuters/Zogby poll a month ago.

The increase is within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Independents favor Democrats by 12 points, and just 56 percent of self-identified conservatives and 68 percent of Republicans say they will vote for the Republican candidate. About 81 percent of Democrats plan to support the Democratic candidate, the poll found.

US House control in Democrats' reach -Reuters poll
7:02 ET, Wed 4 Oct 2006
By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats lead in races for 11 of 15 crucial Republican-held U.S. House seats a month before Nov. 7 elections, putting them within reach of seizing control of the chamber, according to Reuters/Zogby polls released Wednesday.

Republican incumbents are at particularly high risk, the polls found, with seven of nine trailing their Democratic challengers in the high-stakes battle for control of the U.S. Congress.

Democrats must pick up 15 seats to reclaim control of the House, and the polls found Republicans were also behind in four of six open seat races in districts they won in 2004.
Voters Shift Toward House Democrats

By Jill Lawrence, USA TODAY 10/10/2006

WASHINGTON — A Capitol Hill sex scandal has reinforced public doubts about Republican leadership and pushed Democrats to a huge lead in the race for control of Congress four weeks before Election Day, the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows.
Democrats had a 23-point lead over Republicans in every group of people questioned — likely voters, registered voters and adults — on which party's House candidate would get their vote. That's double the lead Republicans had a month before they seized control of Congress in 1994 and the Democrats' largest advantage among registered voters since 1978.

Nearly three in 10 registered voters said their representative doesn't deserve re-election — the highest level since 1994. President Bush's approval rating was 37% in the new poll, down from 44% in a Sept. 15-17 poll. And for the first time since the question was asked in 2002, Democrats did better than Republicans on who would best handle terrorism, 46%-41%.

"It's hard to see how the climate is going to shift dramatically between now and Election Day," said John Pitney, a former GOP aide on Capitol Hill who now teaches at Claremont-McKenna College in California. He said Iraq remains the biggest problem for Republicans: "People just don't like inconclusive wars."

The plummeting GOP ratings in the poll of 1,007 adults, taken Friday through Sunday, come amid a series of events that have given Democrats ammunition to argue that the country needs a new direction.

Conspiracy Theories Abound After Election
Thursday, November 18, 2004

By Liza Porteus

NEW YORK — John Kerry (search) may have decided against contesting the vote count that gave President Bush (search) a second term, but that hasn't stopped some observers from charging that the American voting system is seriously flawed.

In what some have dubbed "Votergate 2004 (search)," reports are floating around that optical-scan voting machines in Florida were hacked while others counted backward; in Ohio, more ballots were cast than voters were registered and some people were denied ballots. And behind it all, according to some theorists, was an effort to undermine Kerry's presidential bid.

A flurry of rumors bandied about by Web bloggers and others have created a conspiracy-theory atmosphere that many say is creating a whole lot of something out of nothing.

"There are lots of problems out there that really need to be addressed in the wake of the 2004 election," said Jim Adler, president of e-voting company VoteHere, which specialized in election audit technology. "I'm concerned that these conspiracy theories are diverting focus from real problems to the imaginary problems.",2933,138753,00.html

BREAKING NEWS: Senate Ethics Director Resigns; Senator Hagel Admits Owning Voting Machine Company By Bev Harris


“Hagel’s ethics filings pose disclosure issue” -- “The Hill” 1/29/2003

On October, 10, 2002 Bev Harris, author of the upcoming “Black Box Voting: Ballot-Tampering” in the 21st Century, revealed that Republican Senator Chuck Hagel has ties to the largest voting machine company, Election Systems & Software (ES&S). She reported that he was an owner, Chairman and CEO of Election Systems & Software (called American Information Systems until name change filed in 1997). ES&S was the ONLY company whose machines counted Hagel’s votes when he ran for election in 1996 and 2002. The Hill, a Washington D.C. newspaper that covers the U.S. national political scene, confirmed her findings today and uncovered more details.

Hagel’s campaign finance director, Michael McCarthy, now admits that Senator Hagel still owns a beneficial interest in the ES&S parent company, the McCarthy Group. ES&S counts approximately 60 percent of all votes cast in the United States. According to the Omaha World-Herald which is also a beneficial owner of ES&S, Hagel was CEO of American Information Systems, now called ES&S, from November 1993 through June 2, 1994. He was Chairman from July 1992 until March 15 1995. He was required to disclose these positions on his FEC Personal Disclosure statements, but he did not.
