On Friday, October 28th just eleven days before the presidential election, the oligarchs threw a “hail Mary” pass, not to Donald Trump but to Paul Ryan, the oligarch’s speaker of the house. The oligarch controlled congress has been teed up to decide the election should neither candidate garner the 270 electoral votes required to become president. Republican James Comey, Director of the FBI and oligarch’s handmaiden delivered a blow to the frontrunner in the presidential race, Hillary Clinton when he sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee stating the FBI was “reopening an investigation” into the e-mails of Hillary Clinton. From Newsweek:
The disclosure by the Federal Bureau of Investigation late on Friday, October 28 that it had discovered potential new evidence in its inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s handling of her personal email when she was Secretary of State has virtually nothing to do with any actions taken by the Democratic nominee, according to government records and an official with knowledge of the investigation, who spoke to Newsweek on condition of anonymity.
The revelation that the FBI has discovered additional emails convulsed the political world, and led to widespread (and erroneous) claims and speculation… The truth is much less explosive. There is no indication the emails in question were withheld by Clinton during the investigation, the law enforcement official told Newsweek, nor does the discovery suggest she did anything illegal.
Also, none of the emails were to or from Clinton, the official said. Moreover, despite the widespread claims in the media that this development had prompted the FBI to “reopen” of the case, IT DID NOT; such investigations are never actually closed, and it is common for law enforcement to discover new information that needs to be examined.
My, my why would Republican James Comey drop this bombshell now? We keep hearing that Comey is an honorable man, above reproach but is he? From The Common Sense Show:
Comey Oversaw Drug Cartel Money Laundering Operations As a Top Executive At HSBC Bank
Before becoming the director of the FBI, Director Comey, worked at the criminal bank of HSBC which laundered drug cartel and terrorist drug money in the worst banking scandal in US history.
My best insider source states that FBI Director James Comey has absolutely no law enforcement background, and is not qualified to run the FBI. To add insult to injury, the FBI Director held an executive position at HSBC Bank, while extreme money laundering operations where (sic) being carried out by the Mexican Drug Cartel and their terrorist allies with the direct assistance of HSBC banking officials. I asked my source if Comey would have known, and he replied “he would have to have been drunk 24/7 to not know what was going on”.
Comey did not just work at HSBC bank as his resume indicates (see below). He was on the Executive Board at the very time the HSBC scandal was breaking. There is no way he did not know as he looked the other way. And when he was vetted for his job as FBI Director, they knew then, he was in a key position of an organization that was caught laundering Mexican drug cartel money for the Sinoloas, the Los Zetas and their terrorist allies. Yet, despite this information which is publicly available, he was made the FBI Director with no law enforcement background!
Oh, dear and this is the man that dropped the bombshell that Hillary Clinton is being investigated for e-mails sent from Anthony Weiner’s personal computer. E-mails that according to Newsweek had, “virtually nothing to do with any actions taken by the Democratic nominee.” Whose interests are being served by Republican James Comey? Maybe this article by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts can shed some light on Comey’s conflict of interest.
The Failure of Democracy -- How The Oligarchs Plan To Steal The Election
I am now convinced that the Oligarchy that rules America intends to steal the presidential election. In the past, the oligarchs have not cared which candidate won as the oligarchs owned both. But they do not own Trump…
Who are the oligarchs?
--Wall Street and the mega-banks too big to fail and their agent the Federal Reserve, a federal agency that put five banks ahead of millions of troubled American homeowners who the Federal Reserve allowed to be flushed down the toilet. In order to save the mega-banks' balance sheets from their irresponsible behavior, the Fed has denied retirees any interest income on their savings for eight years, forcing the elderly to draw down their savings, leaving their heirs, who have been displaced from employment by corporate jobs offshoring, penniless.
--The military/security complex which has spent trillions of our taxpayer dollars on 15 years of gratuitous wars based entirely on lies in order to enrich themselves and their power.
--The neoconservatives whose crazed ideology of US world hegemony thrusts the American people into military conflict with Russia and China…
Hmmm, Wall Street mega-banks, the military/security complex and crazed neoconservatives hell bent on World War III stand to gain if Comey’s FBI can destroy the two front runners in the presidential election. Gee, no conflict of interest there. Paul Ryan and the GOP controlled congress are lapping up Comey’s latest witch hunt Pablum. But if anyone believes this revelation by Comey is designed to benefit Donald Trump they are “dead wrong.”
What convinces me that the Oligarchy intends to steal the election is the vast difference between the presstitutes' reporting and the facts on the ground. According to the presstitutes, Hillary is so far ahead that there is no point in Trump supporters bothering to vote… I am yet to see one Hillary yard sign, but Trump signs are everywhere. Reports I receive are that Hillary's public appearances are unattended but Trump's are so heavily attended that people have to be turned away. This is a report from a woman in Florida:
"Trump has pulled huge numbers all over FL while campaigning here this week. I only see Trump signs and stickers in my wide travels. I dined at a Mexican restaurant last night. Two women my age sitting behind me were talking about how they had tried to see Trump when he came to Tallahassee. They left work early, arriving at the venue at 4:00 for a 6:00 rally. The place was already over capacity so they were turned away. It turned out that there were so many people there by 2:00 that the doors had to be opened to them. The women said that the crowds present were a mix of races and ages."
Interesting, in order for the oligarchs to succeed with a coup d'état this election is to create their own reality. In other words they must convince the people that the two front runners are so unpopular that they cannot amass the 270 electoral votes to become president. It’s the old “who are you going to believe me or your own lyin’ eyes.” A free and honest press is vital to Democracy and we do not have a free or honest press. Now AT&T is planning on merging with Time Warner to form the largest media monopoly in history, but Donald Trump has stated unequivocally his administration will block this unholy marriage. From Bloomberg:
Trump Would Block AT&T-Time Warner Deal in Media Crackdown
Donald Trump said he would block the AT&T Inc.-Time Warner Inc. tie-up if he becomes president, arguing that such media combinations leave too much power concentrated among too few companies, including ones he says are hostile to his presidential bid and rigging the election for Hillary Clinton.
The Republican commented during a speech on Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, billed as an unveiling of Trump’s “contract with the voter” and prospective actions for his first 100 days… Trump also suggested he would favor a breakup of NBC and Comcast Corp., a merger completed in 2013.
Such deals, he said, are “poison” to democracy and result in companies “telling the voters what to think and what to do.” Trump, who has called the U.S. election rigged multiple times this month, didn’t discuss mergers among non-media companies.
Well, well is Trump right? Are such deals as the NBC/Comcast and AT&T/Time Warner poison to democracy? From Silicon Beat:
AT&T built system for spying on own customers, selling info to law enforcement for millions: report
News that Yahoo reportedly gave in to a court order without a fight and spied on users on behalf of the FBI generated massive public outrage. Now it appears that AT&T has been spying on its customers on behalf of various law enforcement agencies, and that it’s been raking in millions of dollars in exchange for information about users, including their locations.
The telecommunications giant, whose planned $85 billion purchase of Time-Warner faces heavy scrutiny by regulators, created the “Hemisphere” program and used it to make millions of dollars a year peddling users’ personal information to police and other agencies, according to The Daily Beast…
AT&T developed Hemisphere in 2007, and it’s now used in 28 Drug Enforcement Agency intelligence centers, according to the article. Employees of the telecom reportedly analyze AT&T’s data on users to give information to the DEA.
Gee, that seems in violation of the constitution of America. Sounds like a case for the US Supreme Court, our highest authority on the constitution. An august body above reproach for their “non-partisan” interpretation of the constitution. Not. From Slate:
No More Bush v. Gore
For many years after the Supreme Court ruled 5–4, along partisan lines, to resolve the 2000 election in a way that ensured George W. Bush would win the presidency, Justice Antonin Scalia would unerringly answer questions about Bush v. Gore and a potentially stolen election with a tart admonition to “get over it.”
The late justice’s words drove liberals nuts—it was about as dismissive as he could be without resorting to his middle finger. But as we fret about the toxic—and possibly even violent—outcome of a presidential election seen by a great swath of the electorate as illegitimate, and as we worry about the impossibility of post-election repair, Justice Scalia’s seemingly snotty answer reveals just what has been lost between 2000 and 2016.
Despite the rank injustice of how the 2000 election was decided, and the staggering silliness of the majority opinion in Bush v. Gore, Americans tolerated the judicial decree that the election was over… Senate Republicans have now clearly signaled that any nominee seated by a Democratic president will not be “their” justice and a court dominated by Democratic appointees is no longer a real court.
So the oligarch controlled GOP has drawn a line in the sand, if the GOP loses the election they will not confirm any Supreme Court Justice nominated by a Democrat, effectively initiating a judicial coup. Only a SCOTUS approved by the oligarchs is “legitimate.” So will the 2016 election be stolen by the oligarchs? In order to do so there must be massive, behind-the-scenes fraud. From Insider Fox News:
Officials in 2 States Say Early Voters Want to Change Their Ballots
Voters in Minnesota and Wisconsin have the option of changing their vote if they cast their ballots early or as absentees. Rich Edson reported on "America's Election HQ" today that officials in the two states have confirmed that some voters are indeed changing their minds and their ballots. Edson reported that the Minnesota Secretary of State's Office says that voters can ask to cancel their ballot until the close of business one week before Election Day. "Wisconsin officials say voters can cancel their absentee ballots up to three times," Edson noted.
Ha, ha. Who do you think those “some voters” are? And what about those previous two votes cast, will they be counted as legitimate votes? Are some voters allowed to cast three votes in Wisconsin? You betcha. Do you think elections in “Koch Brothers’ Korrupt Wisconsin are legitimate?
He said that these rules are particularly significant in this election, with all the late-breaking sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump and WikiLeaks dumps of Hillary Clinton campaign emails.
"Now, thousands of voters in those states can resubmit their ballots if revelations about the candidates change their mind."
Yes, while some voters in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin can cast three ballots, students at UW-GB will have a difficult time even casting one vote, thanks to the GOP. From The Nation:
A City Clerk Opposed an Early-Voting Site at UW–Green Bay Because ‘Students Lean More Toward the Democrats’
Carly Stumpner, a junior biology major at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, had an hour between classes to vote during Wisconsin’s April 5 presidential primary. But when she arrived at her polling place on campus, the line stretched for two hours across the student union... When polls closed at 8 pm, there were still 150 students waiting to vote. “Some people described it as chaos,” reported Ellery McCardle of the local ABC affiliate. “People were standing shoulder to shoulder, there was absolutely no room to move around in here.”
After the primary, leaders of eight different student groups—including the Republican, Democratic, and Libertarian parties and the Black Student Union—asked the city to put an early-voting location on campus to alleviate long lines. But city officials ignored the request and opened only one early-voting site on September 26 for the entire city—the third-largest in Wisconsin—at the clerk’s office, a 15-minute drive from campus, which is open only during business hours. City Clerk Kris Teske, an appointee of Republican Mayor Jim Schmitt, a close ally of Governor Scott Walker, said the city didn’t have the money, time, or security to open an early-voting location on campus or anywhere else…
But privately Teske gave a different reason for opposing an early-voting site at UW–Green Bay… “I have heard it said that students lean more toward the democrats… In 2014, Wisconsin’s Republican legislature eliminated early-voting hours on nights and weekends and restricted early-voting sites to one location per city.
GOP State Senator Glenn Grothman, who’s now a member of Congress, cited extended early-voting hours in heavily Democratic cities like Madison and Milwaukee and said, “I want to nip this in the bud before too many other cities get on board.”
Even Barack Obama and John McCain are now admitting the election is rigged. From Veterans Today:
Did McCain and Obama BOTH admit 2016 election is rigged?
In a stunning bipartisan admission, President Barrack Obama and Sen. John McCain reportedly have revealed that the outcome of the upcoming presidential election has been essentially decided in advance, and that the pre-ordained winner – barring an act of God – will be Hillary Clinton. McCain’s reported remarks echoed Obama’s statement in August that Trump will be declared the loser, and will not even be allowed to raise questions, unless he is at least 10 or 15 points ahead:
“If Mr. Trump is up 10 or 15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, then maybe he can raise some questions,” President Obama stated on August 4th according to Reuters… The official admission that Trump will not be allowed to even “raise questions,” much less claim victory, unless he is “up 10 or 15 points” speaks volumes about American elections…
The official admission that Trump will not be allowed to even “raise questions,” much less claim victory, unless he is “up 10 or 15 points” speaks volumes about American elections. If you win by less than 10 or 15 percent, they will steal the election from you – as Bush/Cheney did when Kerry won by roughly 54% – 46% in 2004, but had the result nullified by rigged voting machines. The cyber expert who rigged the machines, Mike Connell, was killed in an engineered plane crash shortly before he was scheduled to testify in court against Karl Rove.
That’s right, unless Donald Trump wins with a “fraud-proof margin” he cannot even question the preordained results. So just eleven days before the presidential election, the oligarchs have thrown a “hail Mary” pass to Paul Ryan and the oligarch controlled congress. It doesn’t matter that there’s no there, there. The media will run with the “bombshell” October Surprise provided by the oligarch’s handmaiden James Comey.
After the election Comey will receive another cushy job for his service to the oligarchs, maybe at the World Bank this time. The results are in, the election is rigged, and Americans have a choice in front of them, they can either rise up and fight against the oligarchs or take Antonin Scalia’s advice and “get over it.” I for one will fight.
