Florida sparks vote storm

BBC report sparks Florida vote storm

By Martin Sieff
UPI Senior News Analyst

Washington, DC, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- A British Broadcasting Corporation report has unleashed a political storm over suggestions that the Bush campaign in Florida may be planning to disrupt voting in the state's black neighborhoods.

Democrats have expressed outrage over the BBC report, while Republicans are heatedly challenging its accuracy.

BBC's prestigious "Newsnight" regular news program reported Tuesday that two e-mail messages prepared for the executive director of the Bush campaign in Florida contained a so-called caging list with the names and addresses of 1,886 voters in predominantly black and traditionally Democrat areas of Jacksonville.

The report then noted that Florida law allows political party operatives inside polling stations to stop voters from obtaining a ballot. Then, they can only vote "provisionally" after signing an affidavit attesting to their legal voting status. Yet U.S. federal law, the BBC's Greg Palast noted, prohibits targeting any challenges to voters -- even if there is a basis for the challenge -- if race is a factor in targeting the voters.

Republican state campaign spokeswoman Mindy Tucker Fletcher confirmed to the BBC that GOP poll workers in Florida would be instructed to challenge voters "where it's stated in the law." But at the time she refused to deny the possibility that the "caging list" would be used to create a challenge list for black voters from overwhelmingly Democratic districts. Later, she offered another explanation for it.

An elections supervisor in Tallahassee shown the "caging list" by a BBC reporter responded, "The only possible reason why they would keep such a thing is to challenge voters on Election Day."

The existence of the list came to light when it was sent to the executive director of the Bush campaign in Florida and to the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign's national research director in Washington.

In a later response e-mailed to the BBC, Tucker Fletcher offered a new explanation that she had not given the BBC when first questioned about it. She said the list had been created to try and reach out to new registrants for the election.

"The Duval County list was created to collect the returned mail information from the Republican National Committee mailing and was intended and has been used for no purpose other that," Tucker Fletcher wrote to BBC Newsnight editor Peter Barron Tuesday.

"Palast's insinuation that it was created for and will be used for the purposes of an Election Day challenge is erroneous and frankly illustrates his willingness to twist information to suit his and others' political agendas," she continued. "Reporting of these types of baseless allegations by the news media comes directly from the Democrats election playbook."

However, the controversy around the Jacksonville list is far from the only allegation of attempts by GOP campaign officials to suppress or discourage African-American voter turnout.

In Ohio, where around 400,000 new voters in generally Democratic areas have been added to the polls this year, Republicans have deployed a high proportion of their 3,600 polling monitors in predominantly black areas such as inner-city Cleveland.

And BBC Newsnight also reported that it filmed a private detective who was filming early voters in a predominantly black neighborhood.

Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown told the BBC she believed that surveillance operation was part of a widespread pattern of intimidation to scare off African-Americans who are expected to overwhelmingly vote for Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry by a margin of at least 80 percent to 20 percent for President George W. Bush.

The "caging list" row is not the only looming voting controversy roiling the waters in Florida. Some 58,000 ballots for absentee voters in Broward County have so far not been delivered to the voters who had applied for them.

Gisela Salas, Broward County's deputy supervisor of elections, told News 10 television in Florida, "Some of those ballots are actually starting to arrive at their destinations." But then she added, "It really is an extraordinary delay in the mail service. ... What really happened to them is still in question."

Diane Glasser, vice chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party, had no hesitation in putting her own interpretation on the snafu. "It looks like they're trying to steal the vote again," she said.

Identity card plan sparks 'Orwell' fears

MINISTERS were warned yesterday that they were ushering in an authoritarian "world of George Orwell" after saying they would push ahead with plans for a compulsory identity card for everybody in the country. David Blunkett, the Home Secretary, explained how the cards would work, who would pay for them and what they would contain. However, he revealed that the cards would go much further than many of his critics feared, giving the security services a complete record of the card’s use, allowing them to see information, for instance, on when the card is checked to verify the holder’s identity. This could even happen on some occasions at visits to the doctor or the bank, if the cardholder is applying for a loan and needs to be identified formally. The cards are being introduced to combat benefit fraud and illegal immigration but critics fear they will infringe on the civil liberties of every law-abiding person in the country.

The Home Office will create a database of personal biometric data for all 59 million people in the UK. Each time a card is checked against this database - for instance, when accessing government-provided services such as healthcare - a record will be created. That record will be accessible to security services.

"We've entered the world of George Orwell's 1984 20 years late"

Secret services to be given access to ID card database

The intelligence services will be given unprecedented access to the government database underpinning the controversial identity card scheme, the Home Office said yesterday, prompting accusations of Big Brother-style surveillance of people's everyday lives. The plan emerged as David Blunkett, the Home Secretary, announced "refinements" to his ID card proposals, saying that the central register containing the cards' information would provide a "full audit trail" of when and where they were used. This could include every time holders use public services - including hospitals, benefits offices or colleges - buy an expensive item or make large withdrawals from banks. The Home Office insisted that only the security services, such as MI5 and MI6, and not police or government officials, would be allowed to access the data. But a spokesman for Liberty, the civil liberties organisation, said: "It's very easy to say today that only intelligence services could access this information. But they can't say that would be the case in five years' time. Once the information is in the system, it's open to misuse." The Liberal Democrat MP, Bob Russell, of the Home Affairs Select Committee , said: "We've entered the world of George Orwell's 1984 20 years late."

The Home Office also announced yesterday that the Government had scrapped the idea of combining the ID card with passports and driving licences. Having assessed the "cost, implementation and risk considerations", it said it had decided to introduce a separate, free-standing card.

Big Brother meets the silicon chip

A technological breakthrough can be used for sinister purposes.

In Amsterdam and Barcelona, patrons of exclusive bars can opt to have a microchip implanted under their skin. The chip allows them to enter the clubs unimpeded while also allowing management to keep a running record of their tab. The technology is the same as that used to track endangered animals in the wild or domestic pets in cities. Now the US Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of VeriChip technology for medical purposes. An electronic capsule the size of a grain of rice transmits a code to a scanner, allowing doctors to obtain a patient's medical history from an accompanying database. The technology could be used to track Alzheimer's patients who "wander" or allow doctors to know the blood type and medical allergies of patients who enter emergency rooms unconscious and need immediate surgery. The FDA's approval has alarmed human rights advocates, who speculate that the implants could have more sinister applications. They envisage an Orwellian future in which the implants could be used for surveillance and identification. "Once the technology is out there and is available it raises the very real possibility that people in a position to require or demand it will begin to do that," said Katherine Albrecht, who has campaigned against the devices. "In the post-9/11 world we are already racing down the path to total surveillance.

The only thing missing to clinch the deal has been the technology. This may fill that gap." (It is possible, however, that a microchip on a removable wristband - of the type recommended by blood transfusion specialists in Melbourne last week - might confer the benefits of the technology, while lessening the risks.)

Bush ten years ago vs. today

Bush ten years ago vs. today - definitely worth a look...

This is the most remarkable video I've ever watched. It shows juxtaposition video clips of George Bush campaigning in Texas 10 years ago and current stump and debate video clips. The evidence of cognitive decline is unmistakable.

Joseph M. Price, M.D. has published an article in the Atlantic Monthly (October 2004) and diagnosed George Bush's cognitive problem as Presenile Dementia. I've not read Dr. Fine's article as yet, but the videoclip evidence shows a profound decline in Bush's ability to track and speak coherently.

Texans who watched him debate 10 years ago have to know this. Those in his inner circle, including Laura Bush clearly know this. Investigative reporters such as Bob Woodward, have to know this. Where are they? We've had one president who showed signs of dementia (Alzheimers) while in office and he was elected to a second term. The country can not afford to allow this to happen again. SSD

BUSH GHOSTWRITER REVEALS TRUTH ABOUT IRAQ INVASION
PLANS, NAT’L GUARD SERVICE

Taped Interview Shows Bush Was AWOL For Air Guard Service, Bush Sr. Disagreed with Iraq Invasion

WASHINGTON, DC – A ghostwriter for President George W. Bush has gone public with taped interviews revealing that the President privately expressed a desire to invade Iraq as long ago as 1999, and that he indeed had not attended training drills for the Alabama National Guard, contrary to public statements. Mickey Herskowitz – a ghostwriter for both George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush – has revealed startling information about both men that he learned from extensive candid conversations with the 41st and the 43rd presidents. Herskowitz revealed the information in a series of interviews with investigative reporter Russ Baker, which Baker tape recorded:
http://russbaker.com/Guerrilla%20News%20Network%20-%20Bush.htm

Baker's article reveals that "in 2003, Bush’s father indicated to [Herskowitz] that he disagreed with his son’s invasion of Iraq."

George W. Bush was reluctant to talk to Herskowitz about his National Guard service. But Bush did tell him "that after transferring from his Texas Guard unit two-thirds through his six-year military obligation to work on an Alabama political campaign, he did not attend any Alabama National Guard drills at all, because he was 'excused'." Bush's comments to Herskowitz "directly contradict his public statements that he participated in obligatory training with the Alabama National Guard."

According to Herskowitz, "two years before the September 11 attacks, presidential candidate George W. Bush was already talking privately about attacking Iraq." In 1999, Bush said to Herstkowitz, "My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it. If I have a chance to invade….if I had that much capital, I’m not going to waste it. I’m going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I’m going to have a successful presidency."

Kerry v Bush - The Choice

I assume that, like me, you see a stark contrast between George W. Bush and John Kerry. Unilateral war and isolation vs. a return to alliance-building and global leadership. Tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate favoritism vs. an economy that works for working people. Healthcare giveaways to HMOs and drug companies vs. affordable healthcare for all Americans. More of the same vs. a fresh start.

Although both candidates have tried to position themselves to the center and both have sought to reassure Americans that they will be tough on terrorism, the substantive differences are still dramatic. But with a campaign that has featured more personal attacks than earnest policy debate, many voters are still muddled about what is at stake.

In these last days before the election, I want to enlist you to take one final action to address this problem. Please take a moment right now to see our side-by-side line up of the two candidates on the issues, and use it to highlight for your friends -- particularly those in the swing states that will decide this election -- the stakes that will be decided on November 2nd:

http://action.ourfuture.org/ctt.asp?u=1742757&l=65532

Millions of dollars will be poured into ads over the next few days, but personal contact is far more persuasive than advertisements and written editorials. Taking time to contact your friends and relatives is one of the most powerful steps you can take to impact this election. And for anyone who's heard from you before and remains unconvinced, let them hear from you again.

http://action.ourfuture.org/ctt.asp?u=1742757&l=65532

The comparison we've created lays out the stark differences in direction represented by these two candidates. Please use it to inform any appeals you make over the next few days.

*Email it to friends directly from the Straight Talk website.
*Make phone calls and use it as talking points.
*Print out copies to share with people who are interested.

Whatever you do over the next few days, please make some time to reach out to friends, colleagues, relatives, former classmates, even former flames who may still be unclear about the choice they'll make on November 2nd.

WIE GEHT ES WEITER MIT DEM MOBILFUNK IM PFAFFENWINKEL?

Peiting (sz) – Aus aktuellem Anlass und aufgrund der gestiegenen Nachfrage werden innerhalb der Umweltinitiative Pfaffenwinkel e. V. zwei Arbeitskreise wiederbelebt. Am Montag, den 8. November treffen sich dazu alle interessierten Bürgerinnen und Bürger aus Peiting und Umgebung beim Gasthof Dragoner. Es ist geplant, die beiden Arbeitskreise AK Elektrosmog und AK Gesundheit zu vereinigen und sich intensiv um die Problematik der gesundheitlichen Auswirkungen der Mobilfunkstrahlung zu kümmern.

Beim ersten Zusammentreffen soll es zunächst einmal um die aktuelle Situation in Peiting gehen, zumal die Marktgemeinde für den 30. November eine Informationsveranstaltung zum Thema Mobilfunk angekündigt hat. In Zukunft will man sich dann vierteljährlich, jeweils in einem anderen Ort des Pfaffenwinkels treffen, und so allen Landkreisbewohnern die Möglichkeit zur Information, zum Gedanken- und Erfahrungsaustausch zu bieten.

Folgende Fragen stehen beim Gründungstreffen auf dem Programm: Wie geht es weiter mit dem Mobilfunk im Pfaffenwinkel? – Warum boykottieren die Betreiber den sogenannten „Runden Tisch“ der Marktgemeinde? – Welche Gesundheitsgefahren werden durch aktuelle Studien belegt? – Gibt es einen akzeptablen Standort für die Marktgemeinde? - Was können Ärzte und Heilpraktiker tun? – Wie können wir die Initiativen im Pfaffenwinkel besser vernetzen?

Im Anschluss des Arbeitskreistreffens findet ab 21 Uhr eine öffentliche Vorstandsitzung der Umweltinitiative statt. Auch hier sind Gäste jederzeit willkommen.

Osafia residents will file a suit against the cellular companies

Several months ago I informed you that 188 people got cancer in areas near cellular antennas in Osafia village. 83 of them have already died, and new cases are found all the time. I bring the main details translated from today's article in the local newspaper:

Osafia residents will file a suit against the cellular companies

Hadid Rasho
Yediot Haifa 29.10.2004

Dozens of Osafia's residents got organized this week in order to file a suit against the cellular companies, to the district court. The sum is 5 million shekels. The lawer is Salah Maron, who tells: "The suit will include also the power company because of the huge transformers in the village, that cause also, according to experts, dangerous radiation. We had professional consultation with experts in the field, and we found that scienfically, it is possible to connect between the cellullar antennas radiation and cancer disease, of which many residents in the village have died."

Five years ago, furious residents burned the antennas farm that was located near the village. Hundreds of policemen did not succeed in stopping the people who protested, and the rage that was accumulated in the village after dozens of Osafia residents had got cancer and part of them died. The residents believed then, as now, that the radiation caused the multitude of cancer cases and deaths in suffering of many of those people.

These days, there is no reception in the village, because of absense of communication antennas. The coalition for public health (which includes 20 environmental groups) asked the Health Ministry to map the cancer disease in the arabic population. The reason for their request is lack of publication of the cancer situation among the arabic population, although there is a dramatic increase in cancer morbidity among the arabic population, and although such a survey was done for the jewish population. The Health Minitry refused with the explanation that they don't have enough budget. The coalition asked the health minister to interfere, and give enough resources for this work, like it was done for the jewish population.

Dr. Zamir Shalita says, that it is possible that the transformers and the power lines contribute to the illness. He was there on the 20th, and there was low radiation then. It is not exactly like the newspaper says that there are no antennas there, there are, but when formal people (ex Environment ministry person, currently works in an air-pollution industry funded body, Cities Association) came there, there was lower radiation than usual, according to Dr. Shalita.

Why was there lower radiation? Dr. Shalita: "probably because Ehud Neaman [from cities association] put the large meter with a mace the size of King Ahashverosh on the tender, and only the blind residents of Osafia couldn't see it. Of course, this tender parked near the local council before we went to the area, and the companies were organized to reduce the power".

The people who burnt the antennas in the past showed him how the equipment looked before they burnt it. They told him that they prefer the fine they were charged, to cancer.

The WMD lite scandal

by Pepe Escobar

Asia Times

10/29/04

Whether it was poetic justice or yet one more instance of hubris, in the end there was indeed an 'October surprise.' Call it the WMD-lite scandal: the disappearance of 380 tons of dual-use explosives in Iraq.

Certainly Republican Machiavelli-in-charge Karl Rove didn't see this surprise coming -- hitting the Bush administration like a jet converted into a missile. Now the neo-cons and Pentagon civilians are scrambling like mad trying to cover US President George W Bush's back and defuse yet another spectacular blunder...

I don't care who wins as long as it's Kerry

by Jim Moore

Ether Zone

10/29/04

My choice is Kerry. Not because he is that much different than Bush in his philosophy, stance, and choices for America. Both men come from wealth and influence. Both are Yale men. Both are Skull and Bones men. Both men see America, the only superpower, as a beacon of freedom in a troubled world. Both men have similar views of problems in the Middle East and other hot spots in the world. Their similarity of views about America's foreign policy cannot be overstated. But two things John Kerry has got that George Bush has not...

Stop and think

by Thomas Sowell

Washington Times

10/26/04

While many people are urging us to vote -- regardless of for whom, for what, or for what reason -- there are very few urging us to do what is far more important: Stop and think. Voting is not a matter of personal expression but a serious responsibility for choosing what course this country will take in the years -- and decades -- ahead. Seldom have two presidential candidates presented more starkly contrasting visions of what course to take, both internationally and domestically. But this election is not about Sen. John Kerry or President Bush or even about the next four years. It is about a country at a crossroads and closely divided as to which road to take -- roads from which there may be no turning back for many years.

We are talking about our future and the future of our children and grandchildren...

Ugly, tasteless, terrifying and wild

Ugly, tasteless, terrifying and wild ... count me in

by Hunter S. Thompson

Independent [UK]

10/28/04

Presidential politics is a vicious business, even for rich white men, and anybody who gets into it should be prepared to grapple with the meanest of the mean. The White House has never been seized by timid warriors. There are no rules, and the roadside is littered with wreckage. That is why they call it the passing lane. Just ask any candidate who ever ran against George Bush -- Al Gore, Ann Richards, John McCain -- all of them ambushed and vanquished by lies and dirty tricks. And all of them still whining about it. That is why George W Bush is President of the United States, and Al Gore is not. Bush simply wanted it more, and he was willing to demolish anything that got in his way, including the US Supreme Court...

US invasion killed 100,000 Iraqi civilians

Study: US invasion killed 100,000 Iraqi civilians

Arizona Central

10/29/04

Researchers who conducted a house-to-house survey of Iraqi families estimated Thursday that at least 100,000 civilians died as a result of the U.S.-led invasion, far more than any previous estimates. The projection, which could intensify debate over the war as the presidential election draws near, compares with previous estimates of 10,000 to 30,000 Iraqi civilian deaths and drew sharp criticism from one defense analyst. ... Designed by Johns Hopkins public health scientists and carried out by teams of Iraqi doctors, the study attributed most of the deaths to military actions by coalition forces. The findings appeared Thursday on the Web site of The Lancet, a leading British medical journal...

Bush suppresses CIA report until after US election

The Bush administration is preventing the CIA from publishing a report which concludes that their policies since 9/11 have put the American people in more danger than ever before. The US government wants the people to vote without knowing the truth or the facts. You are allowed to vote, but only based on the information that the government wants you to have. So much for "freedom" and "democracy" in America. What right do we have to force democracy on Iraq and Afghanistan when our own version is such a blatant fraud?

The agency is withholding a damning report that points at senior
officials.

It is shocking: The Bush administration is suppressing a CIA report on 9/11 until after the election, and this one names names. Although the report by the inspector general's office of the CIA was completed in June, it has not been made available to the congressional intelligence committees that mandated the study almost two years ago.

3,600 People to Challenge Voting Rights in Ohio

According to a representative from nonpartisan Election Protection coalition, "The Secretary of State [of Ohio] should protect the rights of legitimate voters, not curtail them. He should make decisions that bring more voters to the polls, not keep them away. He should clear the path to the ballot box, not put up barriers. There should be nothing to fear, and everything to gain, from a massive voter turnout in Ohio." Veterans for Common Sense believes election officials should remain nonpartisan, because it avoids partisan conflicts of interest.
