Election Night Projections: Cover For Vote Rigging Since '64? CORP. MEDIA VOTESCAM: '64 -
VOTER NEWS SERVICE warrants an investigation!

WHY THROW OR RIG AN ELECTION BEFOREHAND, WHEN YOU CAN SIMPLY 'PERFORM' THE CORPORATE OUTCOME YOU WANT ON NATIONAL FAKE T.V., VIA 'PROJECTIONS' (WITHOUT ANY CONNECTION TO ANYTHING), AND LATER, YOU CAN COMPLETELY IGNORE OR RETROACTIVELY CHANGE VOTE TALLIES TO FIT WHAT PERFORMED TELEVISION ANCHORS SAID HAPPENED.

The news networks don't just report election news, they create it. But do they also conspire to control election results?

This scenario did not originate in my imagination. The authors of Votescam, The Stealing of America, James and Kenneth Collier (both deceased) chronicled vote rigging from 1970 to 1992, that followed a similar scheme. The Colliers also included government officials, such as employees of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as players in this decades-old scam. Media critics have long complained about an unethical relationship between the CIA and the news networks. --- BILL HEADLINE was VNS's executive director during the notorious 2000 Bush - Gore presidential election. Headline started his career as an Air Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1957... Voter News Service warrants an investigation.

Wired or Mad?
Throughout the debate, John Kerry, for his part, looks and sounds a bit like a haunted tree. But at least he's not a lying, sniggering, drink-driving, selfish, reckless, ignorant, dangerous, backward, drooling, twitching, blinking, mouse-faced little cheat. And besides, in a fight between a tree and a bush, I know who I'd favour.

Could the Associated Press (AP) Rig the Election?
The Associated Press (AP) will be the sole source of raw vote totals for the major news broadcasters on Election Night. However, AP spokesmen Jack Stokes and John Jones refused to explain to this journalist how the AP will receive that information. They refused to confirm or deny that the AP will receive direct feed from voting machines and central vote tabulating computers across the country. But, circumstantial evidence suggests that is exactly what will happen.

And what can be downloaded can also be uploaded.

Michael Burke, 25, a freelance assistant cameraman, was working on "Renovate My Family," which deals with both home and personal improvement, according to Carlsbad police Lt. Don Rawson and a Fox publicist who asked not to be identified.

A newspaper delivery driver found Burke's body about 3 a.m. yesterday in a southbound lane of Carlsbad Boulevard at Breakwater Lane, north of Poinsettia Lane, Lt. Kelly Cain said.

Investigators initially thought Burke was the victim of a hit-and-run, but a close examination of the body revealed wounds that might not have been caused by a vehicle, Cain said.

Israel gets U.S. to spend tax money to classify countries on how Anti-Likud Party they are
If this is so important to Israel, let Israel do it.

What about classifying countries on the degree of white racism against Asians, Blacks? What about rating countries on how anti-Palistinian they are? How anti-homosexual, anti-lesbian, anti-transsexuals, etc.? I'll tell you why because the informal policies of the Likud party and the American corporate state will use the broad brush of 'anti-semetism' to slander those until they are in line with the global US/Likudnik fascism.
Anti-semetisim is hardly a priority issue in this world. Anti-Likudnik is! What they are really interested in finding ways to judge other places in some indirect way if they are anti-Likudnik. Then they can plaster it in the CIA owned corporate media, and then use the 'artificial outrage' to legitimate something they were going to do anyway: have the U.S. sanction or invade them or something, until they support US pro-Likud imperialism.

FCC Proposes $1.2M Indecency Fine for Fox
Federal regulators proposed a record indecency fine of nearly $1.2 million Tuesday against Fox Broadcasting Co. for an episode of its reality series ``Married by America'' that included graphic scenes from bachelor and bachelorette parties.

The Federal Communications Commission said the material, which featured male and female Las Vegas strippers in a variety of sexual situations, was indecent and patently offensive, intended to ``pander to and titillate the audience.''

FCC commissioners voted unanimously to fine each of the 169 Fox TV stations that aired the program $7,000. Fox has 30 days to appeal the fines, which total $1,183,000.

Corporate Newspaper Put Me In Danger By Printing My Name
don't talk to the corporate media Citizens, beware!!!! Your civil right's mean nothing to a small town news-paper with lots of money, lack of crime and the greedy urge to sell juicy paper's to the masses. They feel NO NEED to respect a person's right to remain unidentified or just plain left alone!

How, you ask, do I know? It happened to me. A reporter from my local news paper approached me and started questioning me about a brutal murder that occured earlier that morning. I hadn't even know about it until he told me and proceeded to ask me leading questions, then identified himself as a reprter.

Big Deal, you say! Think again. The very next morning I found the headline that would alter my life in way I never imagined, "****** man found stabbed to death", it read. My heart sank when I turned the page and saw my name in print quoted as saying that, "I have noticed gang activity in the area." Hang on, it gets worse! A convienent map pin-pointing our complex was placed right next to my so-called comments. Not only did I now fear reprocutions from my heavily gang populated complex, I also felt violated and shocked that a reporter would blatantly ignore my specific request that he not use my name in his article!
