1)this MasterFull essay does a lexis-nexis search on - election fraud- and finds 1000 on Ukraine and 177 on Ohio, of which all but 10 were DISmissive.

January 3, 2005 -- The Cleveland Federation of Labor is sending busloads of demonstrators to a rally in Columbus, Ohio, today to take part in a protest of election fraud in the 2004 presidential election. As detailed below, there is strong evidence of vote theft in Ohio. But to anyone who gets their news from a television or from most print media, these protesters are kidding themselves or kidding the rest of us, but certainly they are not onto anything worthy of investigation. Last week I received this Email from the Columbus Dispatch:

"Dear Mr. Swanson:

"You say the rally is to protest the fraud that took place in the election. Where did this fraud occur? Who did it? How did they do it?

"Thanx,

"glenn sheller, editorial page editor"

Two months after the election, an editor at ground zero was (seriously or sarcastically) asking a stranger and an amateur to tell him from Washington where the fraud had occurred. I immediately sent him a reply.1 And I didn't hear anything further.

(Dave's reply)

1 Glenn Sheller,

If you're serious, I'm very glad you asked.

To get started, I would recommend reading the Ohio section of this report

http://www.pfaw.org/pfaw/dfiles/file_477.pdf

and the following letters from Congressman John Conyers of Michigan to

Triad, to Sec. of State Blackwell, and to prosecutors:

Letter to Blackwell, his response, and follow-up letter:

Triad letter:

http://www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/triadltr122204.pdf

followup letter:

http://www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/triadfollowupltr122304.pdf

related video:

http://www.truthout.org/docs_04/122404X.shtml

letter to federal prosecutors:

http://ilcaonline.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1246

and this article by the director of the National Voting Rights Institute:

http://ilcaonline.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1316

Would you like me to ask PFAW and NVRI and Conyers' office to send you press

releases in the future? Can I get you any additional information or put you

in touch with any of the organizations involved?

If the above does NOT look to you like reasonable cause to follow the GAO's

advice and investigate, please let me know what level of breakdown and

corruption would interest you.

You know, there are a lot of wacky theories out there, but there are always

dead-ends in a trial and error investigation, especially one done by

grassroots activists without assistance from professional journalists. And

there is so much distrust, that the insane can begin to look plausible. But

the serious evidence of wrongdoing here has mounted so high, that a

continued refusal to acknowledge it will only increase public skepticism and

distrust. Next time around will be worse. Protecting democracy requires

eternal vigilance, and part of eternity is this moment right here. Don't

worry about who you think won or who conceded. That's two people. Worry

about the thousands who tried to vote and had their votes not counted.

Think from their point of view and you'll be on track, in my opinion.

Best,

David Swanson

(snippet)

What about actual coverage of what the "theories" are about and what in them is solidly proven, what's speculative, what's disproved? Any of that? Wouldn't a conspiracy theory go away more quickly if you refuted it than if you avoided it and called it names? Hasn't over half the country stopped believing in the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq after only minimal discussion of the evidence and acknowledgement by the media that there weren't any weapons there?

2)How to use these Talking Points

This document is available in HTML, PDF, or MS Word format at http://jan6points.org.

This document is intended to assist you in arguing that it is a moral imperative for all Members of Congress to take a stand and object to the presidential electors from Ohio, Florida, and other states. It is prepared for citizen-lobbyist who will have face-to-face meetings (most likely with staff members) to convey their concerns and those of millions of others.

We have found that there is no sufficient substitute for in-person dialog, which allows you to directly contradict the many rationalizations and excuses given for inaction, particularly regarding this matter.

We recommend that you internalize the content in these talking points as best you can, as it is difficult to control a conversation or anticipate which specific topics will be most useful in your case.

We have found that the most effective tactic is to engage the meeting participant in a back and forth exchange -- starting with eliciting their concerns. Ask them directly why their boss has not already joined with those like Rev. Jackson and Rep. Conyers. Should they not be forthcoming, you can interject some of the rationalizations below by saying "others have claimed that..."

The points are categorized as Informational, Argumentative, or Political/Strategic but this arrangement connotes no hierarchy of importance or effectiveness. Every situation is unique and you may have the opportunity to use many or few of these points in your effort.

For questions, comments, or more help just contact us at thedeanpeople (at) comcast.net

Informational Points -- to satisfy queries and combat honest ignorance

· An election is not a contest -- it is a survey -- an effort to measure an objective reality. (See Note2 below)

· Elections are intended to measure the will of the people, not the will of the candidates; therefore, it does not matter if a candidate has conceded.

· It is the affirmative DUTY of each and every Member of Congress to personally judge the validity of presidential electors based on any information they have at hand. Yes, they apparently need to be told this. (See Note1 below)

· Each Senator/Rep is Constitutionally charged with the burden of being the backstop or safety valve for an election procedure that has rendered an invalid result

· States have no "right" to have electoral votes counted and many slates of electors have been disallowed in the past -- particularly after the Civil War

· The Voting Rights Act makes it unlawful for minorities to receive disparate treatment by any election process -- no willful or negligent act need be found to have occurred -- a disparate circumstance or result is sufficient for violation.

In 2001 the US Commission on Civil Rights made a legal finding of just such a violation in regard to the Florida election - undisputed evidence of poll-tax-lines and registration process violations makes clear that there has not been a correction of this finding

· If a state's election laws includes a contest provision, that state's election is not lawfully completed unless and until such contests have been disposed of judicially

Argumentative Points -- to counter unfounded rationalizations, excuses, and fears

· What is being asked of the official is a simple question:

"Are hours-long poll-tax-lines for poor minority voters and none for affluent white voters a tolerable condition for you personally?"

Yes, strong stuff. But necessary stuff if we're going to secure our right to have confidence in free and fair elections.

· No unlawful election process can lawfully certify electors

· Objecting is the best action they can take to advance the general cause of "Election Reform"

Objecting to electors, successfully or not, creates a "consequence" for the failures of the system.

A traffic light rarely gets built until someone is killed or injured. Only after 9/11 did Congress seriously address anti-terrorism.

The same is true here and an objection makes it clear to citizens in every state that they must enact reforms and make the investments necessary their state may be denied the privilege of participating in the Electoral College.

· We The People, through our representatives, have set out our election laws to ensure that election results reflect OUR will

Our law is intended to serve our will, not thwart it. We can never again allow "technical" or "legal" arguments and rationalizations to trump reality as we did in 2000.

· When the results of an election are in doubt, the moral burden is on the states to prove the results to be sound.

The People have an inalienable right to full confidence in the results.

Must! Do NOW !-1 Focus 1 Mission 1 Goal 1 RESULT=NewVote by J20

author: CultureJamCleveland

HOW DARE THEE? Democracy IS Deliberately Criminally, Hastily being frog-marched to the GallOWs. Adding insult to injury it's Horribly OutRageous that, Insidiously it is AN OFFICIAL State-Secret! The powers that be have coldly calculated that America and Americans will lie to themselves, tell themselves lies and Live with a Lie. For the most part they may be right, many are physically & emotionally energy-sapped, distracted, conTrolled, apathetic, demoralized and even Zombified. Many millions though, are ascending to that MounTain Top where the view is so grand, omnicient and the scent wafting from the grounds of our election system, smells FOUL with falseness, fraud and an unholy alliance of corporations, judges and elected? officials AND money twisting, unsportsmanlike a process requiring fairness, transparency, integrity into an abomination- a crime syndicate having undue control of the Public and Human right to Vote. The basic Way to petition Our Servant, elected governments, for a redress of grievances. This Liberty Lover has written a Paul Revere-esque chain letter, a powerful invocation to Clot the Bleeding Wound inflicted by a felonius assault on Democracy. We will NOT or canNot Live with a comfortable, despicable LIE....

...a

Just Future & Constitutional Self-GOvernance

---TIME for All Concerned Citizens to report for Historic Duty and

STAND Up with courageous resolve & vigilance -For We are on-the-cusp of

redemption, my friends! Ballots? SchMallots! We NEED to Vote NOW,

with our voices, eyes,ears and feet in this New Year.

Get Ready for 1/3/05 to 1/6/05. Join

in this dynamic FLASH! SmartMob MoveMent in spirited Defense of

genuine Representative Democracy. The Law, the Future, common sense

and decency are ON Our Side. The PeopleUnited in exciting solidarity are ready to BRING IT ON!, to those who corrupt, mock and trivialize our Right to free, fair and VALID

Elections. Either-the B/C or K/E ticket OR the media is not authorized to accept

dirty elections on the people's behalf if it does not follow clean worldwide

standards. A studied, honest legal assessment shows the 2004Debacle to be

suspect, questionable, frustratingly problematic in its planning,

conduct and now-audit.

Since the CorpMedia has almost zilch credibility as an objective news

source it is the EveryDay People's duty to become and originate a

New Medium which breathes life, rarified air into the communications sphere.

DeCONtaminating the poisoned, polluted atmosphere of responsible

public discourse.Honoring the Public's right-to-know, efforts Conscientiously aimed at motivating, maturing and

moving Consensus Reality Forward-closing the Wisdom Gap.

Can't you see Boris, slyly

grinnin',(the raw exit poll data withheld inside his overcoat) smacking

his fist in his palm, threatening, "What part of, it's over, don't

you understand?" With Abu Gharib, Gitmo ethos prevalent & lurking, the shameful

media is acting much like an agressive interrogater, enforcer- foisting a fraudulent, sham election onto the MassPsyche, and to caring, FreeThinkers & justified Vote Defenders, akin to Psychological torture. First they tell us that it is the most important election

in our lifetime, then Andrew Card nervously, unilaterally calls the

election, in lieu of earned merit, for his boss. The media

doesn't study it, analyize it, or do their job and in a concerted campaign,

echo in unison-GET OVER IT. (remember Hussein capture? newspapers,

websites, networks, punditz-LIKE A RAT,Like a Rat, like a rat) Who gives the orders for these negative thought-spores?

THIS indocrination, chicanery, ridicule is obvious and THE ULTIMATE fear

and hopeless-based trauma

CONDITIONING TO MANUFACTURE ALIENATION and TIMID ACCEPTANCE FOR THE

END OF DEMOCRACY.

News org's spreading thought-viruses violate the BirthRight

freedom- Cognitive Liberty and the sovereignity of individuals

freedom to think independently,

fairly, honestly as sentient agents SEEKING the promotion of The

Good. Personally, I could give a hoot if the media doesn't care

about their own credibility or respect Words=Conduits of Spirit. I know where to find solid

information-but they are disturbing and stunting, brainwashing those who don't

have time or strength to discover different solutions that shine

light on hidden, nefarious motives, in effect selling short the Human Race, preventing

wisdom, growth and Delaying the Rennaissance!

Nevertheless, Intuition, word-of-mouth and heart-based gnosis IS very powerful

and contagioUS and shall overcome, their advantage of mass-produced reality bytes courtesy of Monopolies aggressively overwhelming dominance and destruction of

sacred Nature- in all it's forms. Adversely favoring profit OVER people,

machine OVER man, subterfuge OVER SunShine transparency- TRULY archaic modus-operandi for a successful species.

This post shares recent tough essays, VoterGate2004 artifacts, documents and

correspondence to emBOLDen and build your networks, flyers for

historic rallies and Hands-to-Work-Hearts-to-God HOMEmade,

protest=protect SIGNS* ENOUGH! No heavy-handed, top-down reality

control can stop this beautiful calling-WE know what happened and

we have to arREST this corruption-Democracy yearns to STAY UP past

it's bedTIME!
