Why Californians Should Vote

 Do We Have a Right to Know If Our Food Has Been Genetically Modified?Painting by Anthony Freda: www.AnthonyFreda.com.

Even If You Are Boycotting the Presidential Election, Vote Yes on Proposition 37

Some smart people say that we shouldn’t vote tomorrow. See this, this, this and this.

We believe that voting for a third party presidential candidate is a valuable act. Even though California has more than 10% of the American population, California will obviously go to Obama, and so there is no reason for Californians to worry about swaying the election. So we believe that Californians should definitely vote for the third party candidate of their choice.

But even if our California readers aren’t planning on voting in the presidential race, there is a very important reason to go to the polls and vote tomorrow.

We have a right to know if our food has been genetically modified, especially since genetically engineered foods have been linked to obesity, cancer, liver failure, infertility and all sorts of other diseases. Watch brief videos of scientists talking about this issue here and here.

Vote YES on proposition 37, to force the big agrichemical companies like Monsanto and DuPont to label genetically modified foods … so that we as consumers have the CHOICE about what we buy.

Even though past polls have shown Californians overhwhelmingly favor proposition 37, support has been plummeting since Monsanto and the other gmo giants have poured millions into defeating proposition 37 with deceptive advertisements. Indeed, the initiative is now in a dead heat

Why have they been putting so much money into one state ballot? Because a labeling requirement in California would lead to labeling nationwide.

If you live in California, your vote for president won’t really be counted (other than towards matching funds for a third party) … but your vote for proposition 37 will count on a crucial issue for everyone’s health.

    Wanted to add the following which ABC still needs to verify:

    Romney Leaks: Drugs, Blood Diamonds and a Cuban Mistress (Updated)

    FBI, CIA and Foreign Intelligence Agencies “Leak” Romney Files

    (See Addendum for updated critical material)

    by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

    “It was something else, putting together one link in the diamonds, terrorism, money, narcotics trade which, working with Bain, the Bush family, Mormon groups in the CIA and the Mossad, meant to take over all of Africa.”

    snip

    Notes in the “Romney File” indicate the
    following: Based on the number of trips to Cuba and reports from our
    intelligence sources there, Romney was considered a top intelligence
    asset for Cuban and Soviet/Russian intelligence.

    His psychopathic and narcissistic personality disorders tied
    to gambling addiction and obsession with physical security (physical
    cowardice) made him, not only easy to manage but highly motivated to use
    his strong ties in Washington to access whatever intelligence his
    handlers desired. Romney’s “world view” is that he sees himself as a
    molder of world history, above “ordinary people” and obsessed with power
    and personal safety.

    Nothing here is new to anyone but the public. The media had been approached to run this story.

    ABC has it and is sitting on it,
    the US government has all the documents, only the public has been kept
    in the dark, kept from one of the larger coverups in the past couple of
    years.

    We have so many, one can’t use the term “major” without risk of overstatement.

    The story begins at Harvard and ends in South
    Africa, drug money, blood diamonds, spying for Cuba and Russia, a story
    offered to ABC News, a story documented to Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers and Harold Simmons,
    warning them, a warning they chose to ignore. They were told they were
    supporting an organized crime figure, told by unimpeachable sources.

    snip

    BAIN and AFRICAN TERROR

    Blood Diamonds

    There is an African end of this story. A CIA agent named “Tony,” working South Africa, part of a team of agents there, all Mormons, contacted a professional associates of mine. (an intelligence agency director)

    South Africa is my “turf” also.

    “Tony” as he called himself was working with a US law firm and was tasked with investing $120 billion in drug profits, maybe from Afghanistan, in South Africa. He told our representatives he was looking for mining properties worth more than $200 million each.

    “Tony” met, not just with us, but with dozens of other groups in South Africa. Tony is, what we call in the spy business, “burned.” Tony’s group works with UNITA, a terrorist organization, sometimes supported by North Korea, Israel, the US and China. The former Angolan revolutionary organization is now “for hire,” and “terrorism on demand” with a reach that covers a dozen nations.

    Their task, as South African intelligence indicates, is to buy up South Africa and take over the rest of Southern Africa through running terrorist groups out of the DRC or Democratic Republic of the Congo. On their list is Kenya and other nations.

    Their method of operation is to finance themselves with blood diamonds, sent through agents to Tel Aviv, money to be handled by Bain Capital/Romney, then to China where arms are purchased and shipped to terrorists in Africa, “Al Qaeda, Boko Harum and UNITA.

    The details of the deal were set up a month ago. Currently, UNITA is having difficulty coming up with their end, the $1.2 billion a year in diamonds they promised.

    On the Israeli end, Romney, while traveling there with Las Vegas casino boss, Sheldon Adelson, met with diamond traders at what was supposed to be a/an (illegal) fundraiser.

    It was something else, putting together one link in the diamonds, terrorism, money, narcotics trade which, working with Bain, the Bush family, Mormon groups in the CIA and the Mossad, meant to take over all of Africa.

      ……..

      The runway has been cleared for Obama to keep his promises. We need to keep up with the pressure to make sure he does.

      Meanwhile, the voters won.

      I thank everyone here and the election integrity people and Veterans

      Romney, Landslide Loser Refuses Timely Concession

      GOP Retains Control in the House, Dems Sweep Senate

      …by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

      _

      America does some really dumb things but running an organized crime
      boss for president, and a bumbling wimp of one at that, this had gone
      too far.

      What we can tell you is that the senior active and retired
      intelligence and top law enforcement and DOJ professionals, the drug
      enforcement officers, they are the ones that beat Romney, not the Obama
      campaign.

      They wouldn’t allow Romney to turn America into something even worse than the seemingly hopeless mess we have now and moved.

      Probably the worst scam in the entire election was the accusations
      made by a few stooges, some former military, sold out to organized
      crime, that accused the president of murdering an ambassador in order to
      try to lose the election.

      Add to that a phony corporate media who never attempted to dig out
      who paid for ex-CIA Rev. Terry Jones’ all day Muslim rant webcast that
      cost millions of dollars.

      This was a smoking gun that the whole thing was the expected October
      surprise, and took us only a day to find out who all was involved. Data
      mining is a wonderful thing.

      These stories need to be kept and whenever one of these phony
      military fatass types tries to cash in, they need to be shut down.
      Veterans Today’s archives are backed up on proxy servers off shore and
      can never be ‘disappeared’, hacked or firebombed.

      Then we have Hannity, Dick Morris, George Will, Newt, and, don’t
      forget poor Sheldon “Kiss of Death” Adelson who thought he bought five
      states for Romney and got none.

      Then we can see how well the Israel lobby did, New York is solidly
      Obama and, as of this writing, Florida is in play, a state that was
      supposed to be solid Romney territory with his Cuban connections.

      Oops, we forget. Romney got burned for his Castro meetings.

      The other upside is that the Israel lobby is now where it belongs,
      toothless, its massive influx of illegal cash into race after race and
      voters in almost ever case went the other way.

      Cuba, the recent revelations, burned Romney more than we suspected.
      We ran the story, pushed to do so at the last minute but didn’t think it
      would get solid distribution.

      We were wrong. We simply published, others put it in the hands of key
      political figures and squashed Romney’s backing in several key
      political and ethnic groups.

      Our intel friends were busy in more areas also.

      They leaked Romney’s ties to blood diamonds, money laundering, his ties to Castro and the cartels in Mexico and Columbia.

      They even leaked his mistress, a Russian/Cuban spy name Maria Perez Andropov.

      A few days before the election, what may actually be the best we
      have, a flawed lot I admit, but including key members of our military,
      moved on Romney and Netanyahu and, and, and…

      snip

      We can no longer accept the government under these circumstances, the
      money in politics, the rule by special interest, the war for profit and
      the imposed third world slavery that the American people are expecting
      their grandchildren to face.

      Obama doesn’t get off the hook. He is now free to do all those thing he promised.

      snip

      The fun followup will be the wild conspiracy mongering that has
      already begun on Fox News, claiming ACORN and the Black Panthers rigged
      the election.

      It is a reasonable estimate, not without some backing, that 5 million
      votes were flipped to Romney through software hacking, ballot box
      stuffing and simply destroying ballots.

      He still lost big.

      snip

      …here…despite the fact we are the largest active veterans group and,
      by miles the most politically effective, we continue to be minimized.

      Veterans don’t need cigarettes, booze and bingo. Americans don’t need
      a police state. If government doesn’t want to hear the unpleasant
      truth, it can change or we will find a way of removing it. We didn’t
      take down the criminal cabal around Romney and his Bush associates by
      ourselves but we were a third of that effort, done without one cent of
      fund raising.

      We had Americans with us. Again, my thanks to all that stood with us
      at VT, numbers I would never have imagined. I am humbled. Please post
      all election conspiracy theories in the comment section.

      ……………

      And, and another update:

      http://markcrispinmiller.com/2012/11/score-one-at-last-for-the-election-integrity-movement/

      Score one (at last) for the Election Integrity movement!

      Late last night, after Obama took Ohio, Karl Rove was on Fox News,
      doggedly refusing to concede. He insisted that Ohio was still in play,
      as Romney was going to win in Hamilton County—where the votes were
      “counted” on machines made and maintained by Hart InterCivic, a company
      effectively controlled by Romney’s family. (The same machines were also
      used in Williams County.)

      So it’s not surprising that the GOP’s Lord Voldemort foresaw an
      “upset victory” in that county. It is surprising that he said it on Fox
      News, and when the game was obviously lost, so that a sudden Romney
      “victory” in Ohio would have seemed especially suspicious—even in the
      eyes of Rove’s old allies on Fox News (or those not in the loop).

      To those of us with vivid memories of Election Nights 2000 and 2004,
      it was a creepy moment—and things got even creepier when Brad Friedman
      reported that the website of the Ohio SoS had suddenly gone down, which
      had also happened at that very hour eight years before; and when it had
      come back on, Kerry, who had been ahead, was now behind.
      And—horribly—the rest was history.

      But that didn’t happen this time, as Rove had obviously lost
      control—of himself (his recklessness in mouthing off like that was
      staggering), and, infinitely more important, of his well-oiled,
      fabulously subsidized election-theft machine. For all his plans, and all
      the preparations made by Ohio SoS Jon Husted (among others), Rove was
      clearly overruled on this Election Day, as cooler heads prevailed.

      The fact is that, this time, yet another late-night “upset victory”
      would have been too risky—for the US press had finally done its job,
      enough to make a lot of people conscious of what’s happened to our
      voting system, and, therefore,of what could happen to let Romney “win.”

      The honor roll includes, among many others, Harper’s (for publishing
      Victoria Collier’s brilliant overview), the Atlantic, Esquire, the
      Christian Science Monitor, Forbes (which came out with a killer piece
      about Ohio’s voting system early on Election Day), Huffington Post, and
      even DailyKos (which had been fervently denialist since 2004).

      This time, such organs, and others, played up news that most of them
      would once have buried or ignored—especially the news of what was
      happening in Ohio, broken by Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis in the
      Columbus Free Press, and carried even by such unlikely outlets as Fox 19
      in Cincinnati.

      In short, our work online was finally resonating through the
      mainstream press—not the New York Times or CNN, of course, but others
      numerous and respectable enough to give some traction to the questions
      we’ve been raising for so many years. Thus the old smear of “conspiracy
      theory” finally sounded not like common sense but like the mere ad
      hominem evasion that it’s really always been; and so those few who used
      that smear this time were shot to pieces for it.

      When NBC’s Chuck Todd compared concerns about e-voting to “birther
      garbage,” Brad Friedman cleaned his clock, with a devastating catalogue
      of proven instances of fraud that didn’t just expose the ignorance of
      NBC’s so-called “elections expert,” but which can now be used by anyone
      who wants to fight for fair elections.

      And, as usual, that tired old slur came not just from the corporate
      media but, even louder, from the left—ThinkProgress and Alternet both
      coming out with marvelously stupid pieces whose effect, potentially, is
      so destructive that Karl Rove himself might just as well have written
      them. (In its error-riddled item calling the Hart InterCivic story
      “FALSE,” Snopes.com used Alternet as a source.) And yet the dozens of
      smart, angry comments posted in response to those outrageous screeds
      make clear that leftist pundits can no longer get away with laughing off
      this all-important fight for real elections in America.

      It’s time to put an end to such complacent jeering; because people
      need to know—and want to know—what’s happened here, and what they can do
      about it. That growing public interest is the reason why our work has
      finally broken through, with Brad, Victoria, Bob, Gerry and Harvey
      Wasserman, Jonathan Simon, Sally Castleman, Richard Charnin, Michael
      Collins, Greg Palast, Bev Harris, John Ennis, Sheila Parks, Paul Lehto,
      Marta Steele and so many others (and please do forgive me if I didn’t
      name you here—I’m really tired!) finally seeing, if not their names in
      lights, their vital findings resonating through the public sphere. In my
      own case, that broad public interest recently came home to me when my
      half-hour interview with Heather Wokusch on MNN (NYC’s public access
      channel) instantly went viral up on YouTube, getting over 80,000 hits in
      just four days.

      And it’s because our work has reached so many people that it’s not
      just we ourselves who spread the word, but countless others who aren’t
      activists. As Rove and his confederates mulled their options yesterday,
      who knows how much they fretted over that explosive bit of video posted
      by “centralpavoter,” showing that an ES&S iVotronic e-voting machine
      had repeatedly flipped his Obama vote to Romney? (The Raleigh Telegram
      reported that the same thing was happening on machines in North
      Carolina.) The fact that it went viral—vividly disproving the GOP’s
      propaganda claimsthat Democrats were somehow flipping Romney votes—had
      to help decide them not to rip off this election after all.

      So while this day after is a thrilling time for Democrats, it is a
      moment of rare triumph for those fighting for legitimate elections in
      America. We’re feeling this elation not because Barack Obama won, but
      because we’ve helped prevent the right from pulling off another “win”
      despite the will of the electorate. And—despite that Democratic sweep—we
      will keep up this fight to realize American democracy itself, which
      must be saved not only from Karl Rove, the Kochs and Sheldon Adelson,
      but from the long joint grip of both the parties, and the money flooding
      through them.

      From Victoria Collier:

      THANK YOU TO THE ELECTION INTEGRITY MOVEMENT!

      The awareness of potential GOP vote rigging was unprecedented leading
      up to the 2012 November election, and it made a difference. Many within
      the election integrity movement – Progressives, Libertarians and even
      Republicans – did not believe that Mitt Romney could win in honest
      elections.

      Election Day 2012 did see break-downs of electronic voting machines
      all across the country, enormous lines in African-American districts,
      and we will probably end up tallying millions of likely-Democratic votes
      lost in voter roll purges, discarded ballots, and other votes lost to
      GOP robo-calling and other dirty tricks.

      Which means that, as in 2008, it’s likely that Democratic wins are much larger than officially recorded.

      But the alarms had been sounded presidential vote-rigging was unprecedented and MILLIONS of eyes were on Ohio and Florida.

      Though we still have a task in front of us – instituting election
      reform; clean elections, the end of corporate campaign financing, and
      transparent vote counting – we must count this election in many ways as a
      victory for our movement.

      What REALLY happened in Ohio on Election Night

      snip

      From Cliff:

      Some hackers/spooks hacked Romney’s computers, which crippled his election day get out the vote activity. However I fail to see how this relates to Rove’s meltdown on Fox News that night.

      A successful hack of the Romney campaign computers would have affected all of the operation, would have been illegal, and would have been known to Rove early on election day. So, it does not explain Rove’s dramatic disconnect over Fox’s calling Ohio for Obama at the 11 PM (EST) news hour.

      The hack we discovered was limited to Ohio. Its use was coming from Bob Urosevich the same guy who personally delivered a malicious patch in Georgia 2002 which flipped the votes and outcome in their governor and US Senate races. Our exposure of the problem in court through one of the top cyber security experts in the world (so certified by NSA) occurred at about 3:15 PM on election day.

      Urosevich would have been informed that the fix had been exposed and that an Ohio judge with jurisdiction had expressed willingness to adopt the corrective action recommended by our expert. He and the one operative who would have been positioned pull the trigger, instead nixed the operation. Neither of them would have been so foolish as to contact Rove to inform him that the Ohio fix was off. Rove’s communications were surely being monitored by law enforcement authorities.

      Thus, Rove’s mistaken rant over Ohio being prematurely called for Obama.
