How Republicans Steal Elections
by Integrity In Voting
Saturday Oct 20th, 2018 1:12 PM
Republicans repreeent less than 1/4 of the voter registrations in the US. Democrats have the most, followed by Independents. The plutocracy Republican party has a variety of ways it cheats. Greg Palast has filed
federal lawsuits in October against the 3 Secretaries of State (Kemp in Georgia, Husted in Ohio, Kobach in Kansas) who are both umpires and players, supervising their own
elections.
How Republicans Steal Elections


No other alleged democracy allows unelected justices to serve for life on the equivalent of Supreme or federal courts.

Does any other government allow a political party
to own the voting machines? In some countries every citizen
is automatically registered. In some places, one can register
on the same day one votes. Corporate media war promoters profiteer from political ads. Republicans are less than 1/4 of registered voters in the US, behind Democrats and Independents.

ABSENTEE BALLOT FRAUD
a. In general Who guards them as they pile up before the counting?
b. Military control of nonofficer soldier absentee ballots has been a quick way to control millions of ballots
c. Absentee ballot forgeries.
d. Republican operatives in Ohio paid USPS workers in Cuyahoga, Summit
and other counties not to postmark absentee ballots thereby disqualifying
them.
ALGORITMS Criminal manipulation of algorithms by Google which in 2004 caused 14 anti Kerry sites (several generated by 1 group)
to pop up for every 1 positive site.)
COUNtiNG BALLOTS. nonRepublicans barred as in Warren Ohio in 2004
DRACONIAN voter registration rules, including birth certificate requirement
ELECTORAL COLLEGE
The electoral college has installed 5 conservative presidents, 4 of them Republican, though their opponents got more votes. These were John Quincy Adams, Rutherford Hayes, Grover Cleveland, George W Bush, and Donald Trump. the electoral college has survived because of the party of the rich.
ESS voting machine remote controls ESS controls 18 state voting systems ESS bought easily hackable Diebold machines
EXACT MATCH law of Brian Kemp in Georgia puts registrations on hold for missing a period on Rd, a hyphen, a middle initial
FOREIGN firms given vote counting contracts e.g. an Israeli firm given contract for Iowa caucus votes which a simple adding machine could have handled. Russian, Israeli and MidEast firms helped Trump with his fraudulent win. Dominion Voting of Canada also bought part of Diebold A Canadian company's voting machines were used in Wisconsin.
GERRYMANDERING .. worst states TX, OH, NC, MS, GA, SC, AL, FL
GOVERNMENT INTIMIDATION
a. Jeff Sessions in Alabama arrested black voter registration workers.
b. Brian Kemp, racist Georgia Secretary of State and voter purger, sent armed agents to arrest blacks registering people to vote.
HACKED
a.campaign sites
b Hacked machines at voting precincts
c Hacked machines in organizational and home computers
HANDICAPPED denied help Brian Kemp in Georgia sued a woman for helping her blind mother vote
LIES & scandal creation
LITERACY tests
MEDIA
a Media charging for air time (in many countries, air time is free and each candidate has the same amount of time)
b Media GOP owned censoring news of early voting, of voter registration deadlines.
c Media: Talk radio 95% Republican ABC launched Rush Limbaugh, IHart Radio (Clear Channel) bought by Mitt Romney, Australian unionbuster Rupert Murdoch controlling more airwaves than allowed by FCC etc.
MONEY DEFINED AS SPEECH by unelected GOP dominated Supreme Court. Five Republicans on the US Supreme Court voted to classify money as speech. Money apparently does talk. This opened the way
for the Koch Brothers and others to spend hundreds of billions buying the Senate and the House, the elections of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. This action further solidified the function of the government as a plutocracy, not a democracy.
MURDER Mysterious plane crashes in fall senate election campaigns ended the lives of Democrats Jerry Litton in Missouri in 1976, Gov Mel Carnahan of Missouri in 2002, Paul Wellstone of Minnesota in 2002 right after he publicly opposed US wars and in Iowa of Libertarian physician Dr Doug Boutzier, whose 5% of the vote would otherwise have defeated Koch Brothers funded Joni Ernst.
After the perhaps murder of Paul Wellstone, former vice president Democrat Walter Mondale also a peace Democrat, was double digits ahead in the polls on the eve of the election, but because of monumental fraud Republican Norm Coleman mysteriously won the senate election.
John F kennedy Jr died in a plane crash. His pilot had been told the day before not to show up. Senator Edward M Kennedy was subjected to attempted murder in a plane crash (after the murder of his 2 brothers). He broke his back but survived though 2 men in his campaign staff died. Another who survived a murder attempt was George Wallace, candidate of the American Independent Party in 1968, whose shooting prevented his third party run and helped Republican Nixon beat Democrat Hubert Humphrey. In 1968 the Nixon-Kissinger-Rockefeller-Hoover conspiracy was involved in the murder of Robert F Kennedy Jr, Martin Luther King (who would have promoted Kennedy's election) and the attempted murder of George Wallace. John Perkins who was once an economic hitman for the government courageously documented the number of leaders of other countries killed in the CIA's arranged plane crashes.*
Ron Brown, US Secretary of Commerce, Democrat, had a bullet in his head when his body was discovered in the crashed plane.
NATIVE AMERICANS on reservations required to have street addresses by Republicans in ND and on Supreme Court (Kavanaugh, Gorsuch nominated by fraudulently elected Trump, Roberts and Alito nominated by the unelected G W Bush, Clarence Thomas nominated by G H W Bush who was elected by crimes he and his campaign manager Lee Atwater committed.)
NO DIRECT ELECTION OF SUPREME COURT AND FEDERAL JUDGES
In the early 20th Century, after 125 years, the citizens' right to elect senators directly was finally recognized. It is time to elect Supreme Court justices and end their lifetime tenures. Five males over and over have quashed the will of 300 million Americans. They are on a mountain peak with the equivalent of automatic rifles shooting down democratic movements over and over again. Every Republican on the Supreme Court was nominated by a fraudulently elected president. Terms could be 9 or 18 years, with 1 justice elected every 1 or 2 years.
NO PAPER TRAIL in at least 4 states including GA, NJ
PHONE LINE JAMMING, e.g. GOP in NH jammed Dem lines offering transportation to handicapped voters
PHYSICAL REMOVAL OF VOTERS
Dozens of senior blacks removed from a bus on their way to vote in Brian Kemp's Georgia
https://www.vox.com/identities/2018/10/17/17990110/georgia-senior-citizens-bus-removal-black-voters-matter-suppression
POLICE INTIMIDATION
a Jeb Bush sent police to block roads to polling places
c In the 1968 California primary in which RFK was murdered,
Republicans had sent operatives in to threaten black voters in Watts
POLLING CORRUPTION
GOP public relations firms and advocacy groups with copious number manipulation such as Rasmussen and Fox have been termed pollsters
POLL TAXES
PUBLISHINg FALSE VOTER INSTRUCtIONS in Democrat areas In Jacksonville the Florida Times Union published a special edition for black areas instructing that every page of ballot be voted, invalidating 20,000 ballots in 2000 (Gore v Bush)
PURGIN GENERALS Secretaries of State removing legitimate names from rolls ... worst offenders Brian Kemp GA removed 1.4 million voters, Jon Husted OH, Kris Kobach KS, Jeb Bush FL, Senator Richard Burr's operatives sued in NC by NAACP, Heller campaign removing 90,000 in Nevada, Indiana etc.
RACISM
a Racism in rejection of registrations
b Racism in advertising Through racist fearmongering ads, G W Bush in 1988 stole the election from Michael Dukakis. Bush's campaign manager Lee Atwater asked forgiveness before his death from a brain tumor.
c. Racist US attorney general: Jeff Sessions was denied a
federal judgeship by the US Senate because of his racist history. Now he has been nominated by the racist Trump as attorney general. Trump 3 times by warned by the Dept of Justice in past years to stop barring blacks from his apartments.
REPRESSION OF THE VOTE Republicans have over and over in many states
a opposed same day registration,
b opposed automatic registration when getting a driver's license,
c opposed expanded voting hours,
d automatic registration at drivers' license bureaus
e universal voter registration
f more voting by mail etc.
g the GOP has truncated voting hours in Democratic areas
SEARCH ENGINE HIDING OF SITES. Google does the most censorship
SENIORS denied help In Brian Kemp's racist Georgian government, Barstow Georgia prevented volunteers from bringing elderly blacks to polls
SEX BLACK OPS G H W Bush arranged a woman to rush over and sit on Gary Hart's lap while a National Enquirer person snapped photo Monica Lewinsky sent in to entrap Clinton because he would not invade Iraq
SITTING ON VOTER REGISTRATIONS Kemp of GA sitting on 53,100
STATEHOOD FOR DC AND PUERTO RICO
The Republican Party has fought the District of Columbia's statehood though it has more population than Wyoming. Puerto Rico too has had statehood denied. DC and Puerto Rico have predominantly Democratic Party registrants.
SUPREME COURT FRAUD dominated by unelected GOP persons nominated by fraudulently elected presidents
THIRD PARTY EXCLUSION
War profiteer network media have often excluded Libertarians, Socialists, Greens etc from debates.
In Ohio for a number of years before a successful lawsuit, third party candidates had to achieve 400,000 signatures to be
on the ballot. Other states as well have draconian rules for third party candidates.
THROWING AWAY NONGOP REGISTRATIONS Nathan Sproull worked for Trump, Romney, McCain campaigns in 8 or more states, in phony voter registration drives, throwing away nonGOP registrations. Virginia, Minnesota, Colorad, Nevada, Arizona were some of the state Republican parties involved.
THROWING AWAY BALLOTS
VIOLENCE
a e.g. Senator Thune's thugs threatened Native Americans in South Dakota, and wrote down their license plate #s
b In the 1968 California primary in which RFK was murdered,
Republicans had sent operatives in to threaten black voters in
Watts
VOTE COUNT CHANGED by Diebold and by ESS which has given many Republicans access through remote controls to vote count ESS bought Diebold
VOTING MACHINES NOT ACCESSIBLE
VOTING MACHINE COMPANIES OWNED BY REPUBLICANS
a Diebold's O'Dell said at a Fairlawn Ohio Hilton in 2004 Diebold would do whatever it could to ensure GOP victory. O'Dell finally resigned but not before his company achieved a Bush victory through manipulation of votes in several states. Hackable Diebold machines are still in several Ohio counties.
and other places. Bev Harris of Black Box Voting showed Al Gore how Diebold machines could be hacked in 3 minutes' time
b Mitt Romney son bought Cincinnati voting machine co.
c. ESS owned by Republicans dominates 18 state elections.
VOTING PRECINCTS: FREQUENT CHANGES.. Late or no notification of changes by Republicans in Summit County Ohio, e.g.
VOTING PRECINCtS SHUT DOWN
Kris Kobach's Kansas just moved the only polling place in predominantly Latino Dodge City Kansas with 13,000 voters there is no place to vote. The average precinct serves 1200 people. aclu.org
In executioner Greg Abbott's Texas Latinos and blacks have had to drive 2 hours or take a bus to vote. In Georgia, Kemp shut down over 200 polling places.
VOTING PRECINCTS NOT OPENING
VOTING PRECINCTS OPENING LATE as in North Hill in Akron OH in 2004
VOTING RIGHTS ACT
John Roberts Chief "Justice" since the
Reagan administration worked to end the Voting Rights Act
and finally succeeded. That was one reason Kavanaugh suggested him as a justice to G W Bush. There is more fraud now than ever.
https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/08/john-roberts-voting-righ...
UMPIRES ARE PLAYERS
Secretaries of State Brian Kemp GA, Jon Husted OH and Kris Kobach KS
are all running for governor or lt. governor while supervising their own elections
WAITING TIME.. long ones ..
a. African Americans 6 times as likely to wait an hour or more to vote
b. Kenyon College students waited all night
long to vote in 2004 election for Kerry

THE ANTIDEMOCRATIC SUPREME COURT

Who is guilty of contempt for the US Supreme Court? The entire world.
No other alleged democracy has justices serve for life.
Nor are these justices elected by the people. It was not til 1917 that the people's right to elect senators was
acknowledged. It is time to elect Supreme Court justices.
These unelected 5 of the Republican pentocracy on the Supreme Court
have been nominated by unelected or fraudulently elected presidents.
Kavanaugh, promoter of executioners, and dovehunter executioner Gorsuch were nominated by the fraudulently elected Trump.
Roberts and Alito were nominated by the unelected G W Bush whose theft of the 2000 election was created by Antonin Scalia and Co. on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas was nominated by G H W Bush who was promoted by Senator Danforth who replaced Jerry Litton who died in a mysterious plane crash in Missouri. Thomas, Monsanto attorney, was elected by crimes he and his campaign manager Lee Atwater committed from 1976 to 1988

THE ANTIDEMOCRATIC SENATE

The Senate gives 600,000 residents of Wyoming the same power in the Senate as 40,000,005 citizens of
California. Wyoming has 1.5% of the population of California. California should have 66 times the voting power of Wyoming in a legitimate 1 person 1 vote democracy. Low population cattle ranch states have many times the power they should have in the Senate.

Husted manipulated the legalization of marijuana vote with the help of old Diebold voting
