You say that Micahel Moore is treasonous Kariliea..i dont think that the poeple at the Cannes film festival that gave his new film a twenty minute standing ovation thought he was treasonous either....here is just a few things that he has outlined about the present sitting president and his government too.....
This is from Micahel's book mentioned earlier..
'' In the summer of 1999 Katherine Harris, was George Bush's presidential campain cochairwoman AND Floirda secretary of state in charge of elections, paid $4 million dollars to Database Technologies to go through Florida's voter rolls and remove anyone ''suspected'' of being a former felon.She did so with the blessing of the govenor of Florida, george W'S brother Jeb Bush-who's own wife was caught by immigration officials trying to sneak $19,000 worth of jewelry into the country without declaring and paying tax on it..a felony in its own right.But hey this is America.We dont prosecute felons if they are rich or married to a governing Bush.
The law states that ex-felons cannot vote in Florida.That means the 31% of ALL black men in Florida are prohibited from voting because they have a felony on their record.Harris and Bush knew that removing the names of ex-felons from the voter rolls would keep thousands of Black citizens out of the voting booth.
Black Floridians, overwhelmingly, are Demorcrats-and sure enough, Al Gore recieved the votes of more than 90% of them on November 7, 2000.That is 90% of those who were ALLOWED to vote.
In what appears to be mass fraud commited by the state of Florida, Bush,Harris and company not only removed thousands of Black felons from the rolls, they also removed thousands of Black citizens WHO HAD NEVER COMMITED A CRIME IN THEIR LIVES-along with thousands of other voters who had commited only misdemeanours.
How did this happen? Harris's office told Database- a firm with strong Republican ties-to cast as wide a net as possible to get rid of these voters.Her minions instructed the companty to include even people with ''similar'' names to those of actual felons.They insisted that Database check peoeple with the same brithdates as known felons, or similar Social Security numbers; and 80% match of relevant information, the election office instructed, was sufficient for Database to add a voter to the ineligible list.
These orders were shocking, even to Bush-friendly Database. They would mean thousands of legitimate voters might be barred from voting on Election Day just beacuse they had a name that sounded like someone else's, or shared a birthday with some unknown bank robber.Marlene Thorogood, the Data base project manager, sent an email to Emmet''Bucky'' Mitchell, a lawyer for Katherine Harris's election division, warning him that '' Unfortunately, programming in this fashion may supply you with false positives'', or misidendications.
Never mind that, said ol'Bucky.His responce ''Obviously, we want to capture more names that possibly aren't matches and let[county election] supervisors make a final determination rather than exclude certain matches''.
Database did as they were told.And before long 173,000 registered voters in Florida were permanently wiped off the voter rolls.In Miami-Dade, Florida's largest county, 66% of the voters who were removed were Black.In Tampa's county, 54 % of those who would be denied the right to vote on movember 7, 200 were Black.
But culling names from Florida's records alone was not enough for Harris and her department.Eight thousand additional Floridians were thrown off the voting rolls beacuse Database used a false list supplied bty another state, a state which claimed that all the names on the list were former convicted felons who had since moved to Florida.
It turns out that the felons on the list had served their time and had all their voting privaleges were reinstated.And there were others on the list who had commited only misdemeanours-such as parking violations or littering.What state offered Jeb and George a helping hand by sending the bogus list to Florida? TEXAS.
This entire incident stunk to high heavens, but the American media ignored it. It took the British Broadcasting Corporation to dig deep into this story, running fifteen- minute segments on it's prime time news program revealing all the sordid details and laying responsiblity at the doorstep of Jeb Bush.It's a sad day when we have to look to a country 5,000 miles away to find out the truth about our own elections.(Eventually the LOS ANGELES TIMES and the WASHINGTON POST picked up the story, but it recieved little attention.)
Linda Howell recieved a letter informing her that she was a felon- and therefore advising her not to bother showing up on Election Day, beacuse she would be barred from voting.The only problem was Linda Howell wasn't a felon- in fact she was the Elections Supervisor of Madison County Florida. She tried to rectify this problem, but hers and others pleas fell on deaf ears.
On November 7, 2000 as Black Floridians flocked to the polls many were met at the ballot box with a blunt rebuke:''You cannot vote''. Polling locations were heavily fortified with police to block anyone on Katherine and Jeb's ''felons list'' from voting.Hundreds of law abiding ciitzens looking to exercise their constitutional right to vote, mostly in Black and Hispanic communities were sent away-and threatened with arrest if they protested.
George W Bush would officially be credited with recieving 537 more votes than Al Gore in Florida. Is it safe to assume that the thousands of registered Black and Hispanic voters barred from the polls might have made the difference if they had been allowed to vote- and cost Bush the Election? Without a doubt.
On election night, after the polls closed, there was much confusion over what was happening with the counting of the votes in Florida.Finally a decision was made by the man in charge of the Election night desk for the Fox News Channel. He decided that Fox should go on the air and declare that Bush had won Florida and thus the election.Fox formally declared Bush the winner.But down in Tallahasse, the counting of the votes had not yet been completed : in fact, the Associated Press insisted it was still too close to call, and refused to follow Fox's lead, but the other news teams followed Fox like lemmings and declared bush the winner''
This is why Bush should not be sitting where he is today and Al Gore should be in the Oval office right now...
But that is democracy for you....even when Gore won he still lost....but i expect the same thing as this to be happening at any time in the Uk....but i dont think the news teams would allow this and smell a rat before it happened... ..this is just known facts about the last US Election...lets hope it will not happen in the coming elections..but you know what?...Jeb Bush has already began to eliminate voters from the list..he surely couldnt get away with it again could he?...
Peace and love..may everyone at PIP have a great weekend...
