Voters opt to “change the course…”

 

A Microvote Infinity voting machineVoters, some angry, others frustrated, all determined to cast their vote, were sitting on hard metal folding chairs, or leaning against walls, waiting hours after the polls actually closed to punch the keys on the computerized ballot that would make their voices heard.

At 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night, several precincts were still in operation, still with long lines, and there would be no word on any local results until that voting was all but over. Coffee, hot chocolate and pizzas were delivered at several locations for hungry and sometimes chilled voters to consume. «Read the rest of this article»

Disney/ABC Trying to Distort History with Partisan Docudrama, The Path to 9/11

 

DisneyJosef GoebbelsTaking a tactic from Goebbels, Disney is distorting history with their version of Goebbels big lie. For those who are not well versed on history, Josef Goebbels was Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister. Goebbels technique argumentum ad nauseam, was a policy of repeating a point until it becomes generally accepted as a truth.

Path to 9/11, a largely fictional account which is being portrayed as a dramatized documentary(docudrama), is nothing more than an lame attempt by one of the largest corporations in the United States to sway public opinion and voters, in favor of a one political party, to the detriment of another, all to influence the outcome of an election. It’s a more ambitious attempt, to do what the so called “Swift boat Veterans for Truth”, and Sinclair Broadcasting, did to John Kerry in 2004.

What’s this all about? «Read the rest of this article»

NSA’s Warrantless Domestic Surveillance UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

 

Constitution

Judge orders program to be halted!

It’s just coming out, MSNBC and the AP are reporting that U.S. District Court Judge Anna Diggs Taylor has ruled that the President’s warrantless domestic spying program is unconstitutional, and that she has ordered an immediate halt to it.

This is a serious rebuke to the Bush Administrations, and their attempt to use the State secret privilege to block an independent judicial review of the legality of this program. This is something that other judges need to take note of as well. «Read the rest of this article»
