Kerry promised that every vote would count, and every vote would be counted. But long before he fulfilled his promise, he conceded. The absentee ballots weren’t counted; the “provisional ballots” weren’t counted; there were discrepancies with the computerized voting machines and more problems with hanging chads, double punched chads and assorted “spoiled ballots.” The uncounted and disputed ballots could have added up to a Kerry win. The election was not over: there were votes to count and problems to fix.

So why did Kerry quit?

Well, both Bush and Kerry front for the same corporate interests. The election was just a popularity contest to identify which candidate the most people would follow most blindly. Key word: blindly.

Multinational corporations already own the country; just a bit more legislation is needed to finalize the deal. A Bush win means a quick close. A Kerry win would slow things down: an acceptable situation, if absolutely necessary. But it wasn't necessary.

The exit polls showed Kerry in the lead BUT most polls also said Bush followers were hotly fanatical, while Kerry supporters were only “warm.” Not good enough to let Kerry take the reins. Today’s Dem voters are too cautious, objective and rational. They’d choke in the stretch.

So the puppetmasters called Kerry and pulled the plug. He conceded because he was told to concede. He also was directed to get his people in line and defuse any disputes.

The puppetmasters put their money on Bush and his followers. They’re counting on Bush believers to hard-sell the party line, silence dissent, and keep the rest of the country under control while they finish their takeover. The takeover is a) economic, and b) legal/legislative.

The economic takeover of the USA is practically complete. The US deficit is in the trillions. Americans are in hock for generations. The feudal system has been restored in the USA and every American is now a servant, indentured to the corporate nobility.

The final legislative takeover depends on totally neutralizing the American Constitution. This little task will be done when Bush declares a state of National Emergency. The National Emergency will be justified by a) a “bio-terrorist attack,” b) acknowledging an already existent epidemic, c) claiming that said epidemic results from bio-terrorism, or by d) H5N1 bird flu going epidemic in the USA, which it will.

Once Bush declares a National Emergency then everyone between the ages of 18 and 34 will be up for conscription into the Select Service. No one will argue or resist because it is a real emergency. Everyone will be panicked; no one will seek alternative solutions.

Select Service personnel will be drafted into the military through the legislation’s back door. Military personnel will round up diseased Americans who are actively infected or non-symptomatic “carriers.”

Select diseased Americans will be interred in “quarantine” camps, which are conveniently available and empty. Bush critics and known dissenters will be diagnosed as diseased, and will be confined. Camp inmates will be denied Internet access and will need to pass a “competency test” in order to vote. Most won’t pass.

The nation will be secured.

Additional Background Information:

Several incurable infectious diseases went epidemic in the USA on Bush’s watch. High blood pressure is a common secondary symptom. Scientists were monitoring these diseases’ evolution for decades. The ‘mechanics’ of transmission and progression are understood well enough that prevention was possible.

Most of these diseases are transmitted in drinking water and food. Old-style decontamination methods destroy bacteria but leave many infectious microbes alive – these methods also kill bacteriophages and other natural microbial predators. Without natural predators to keep them in check, the surviving microbes flourish in water storage tanks, household taps, food manufacturing facilities and more.

Exposure to chemical sterilization procedures and other ‘incidental’ contaminants just makes these microbes evolve into “super-bugs” that can’t be killed, even with the most powerful antibiotics and anti-virals. …If the natural predators were left alive, they would evolve right along with the infectious microbes, and keep them in check. But microbial predators can’t evolve because old-style sterilization kills them. Once again, ignorant intervention upset nature’s natural balance. It’s the same problem Rachel Carson found with DDT, but on a microbial level.

Most new diseases cause “protein conformation” problems that in turn cause stem cell and genetic mutations. These diseases usually take decades to become symptomatic, but if an infected person is exposed to chemical contaminants then progression speeds up. This effect was flagged recently with COX-2 inhibitors like Vioxx, which treat secondary symptoms by shutting down a immune response and make the underlying disease worse. Just to keep things interesting, super-imposed exposures also help create new disease mutations inside the body’s cells.

New infectious disease mutations are linked to all the latest epidemics: heart disease, high blood pressure, metabolic syndromes that cause obesity and diabetes, “genetic” diseases, digestive and breathing disorders, cancer, you name it. These and several other epidemics are only superficially distinct and arguably, all stem from the same underlying cause.

By 2001, the nation was facing a rapidly escalating health crisis. The population was “aging” well before its time; welfare rolls were growing out of control; retirement homes were filling up with Alzheimer and dementia patients, many with “early” disabilities. Insurance carriers refused to cover early diagnosis and prevention, but raised their rates anyway. Multinational corporations were bailing fast and outsourcing everything.

By 2004, nearly half the nation could not afford health insurance and about 20% went without entirely. Early disability and personal bankruptcies were at an all time high. Most good professional opportunities were gone, along with all the benefits and perks. Half the nation was scrambling to hold down 2 or 3 part-time low-pay service sector jobs.

If the goal was to restore Americans’ physical health and so, revive the nation’s economic vigor, the solutions were clear:

1) Curb disease spread and transmission by a) Using new filtering technologies for both waste and drinking water, b) Regulating effective decontamination and sterilization procedures for food, water and other consumer products, and c) Enforcing the regulations;

2) Curb the evolution of new disease mutations by a) Cleaning up chemical contaminants already present in the environment, and b) Preventing the release of new contaminants;

3) Prioritize research to develop “cost effective” methods for early diagnosis and treatment: stem cell therapy being the best bet because the diseases all cause stem cell mutations and stem cell therapy was pioneered in exclusive private clinics 65 years ago.

Bush could have taken these actions. New filtering and decontamination technologies were developed on his watch and were available for the first time. Patent applications for stem cell treatments started hitting the US Patent Office in early 2001, many originally developed in the 1950’s – they’re collecting dust because the issue is not efficacy, it’s getting insurance companies to cover the treatments. Bush could have ensured that every American was vaccinated against H5N1 bird flu – the vaccine was developed in spring of 2003.

But Bush did nothing – except mandate denial of “infectious cause,” silence US scientists and push “Personal Responsibility in Health” legislation.

Why didn’t Bush take action? Why didn’t he work to prevent disease spread and transmission, stop new mutations from developing, and help people get diagnosed, treated and back on their feet? Because the goal is NOT to “restore Americans’ physical health and revive the nation’s economic vigor.”

The objective is to solve the overpopulation problem and dismantle democracy, all in one move. Checkmate. Game over.

1997
"Only recently recognized as human pathogens, ...Cryptosporidium and Cyclospora have been shown to be transmitted through fecally contaminated food and water. The mode of transmission for microsporidia is still unclear. The laboratory diagnosis of these protozoa is difficult. The routine ova and parasites screen does not include screening for them."
Clin Lab Sci. 1997 Sep-Oct;10(5):273-8. Emerging intestinal protozoa: a diagnostic dilemma. Collins PA, Wright MS. University of Kentucky, Lexington 40536-0080, USA. PMID: 10177205

Brasseur P. Waterborne cryptosporidiosis: a major environmental risk. J Eukaryot Microbiol. 1997 Nov-Dec;44(6):67S-68S. PMID: 9508449

1998
"...disease associated with exposure to low levels of waterborne protozoa are of increasing concern. Current methodologies may not be sensitive enough to define these low levels of disease. ...Single microbial exposures (non-threshold) are capable of causing symptomatic illness unlike traditional chemical exposures, which require a threshold to be reached. Due to the lack of efficient recovery and detection methods for protozoa, we may be underestimating the occurrence, concentration and distribution of these pathogenic micro-organisms."
Parasitology. 1998;117 Suppl:S205-12. Risk assessment of waterborne protozoa: current status and future trends. Gibson CJ 3rd, Haas CN, Rose JB. Department of Marine Science, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg 33701, USA. PMID: 10660941

"The initial cases were not diagnosed as cryptosporidiosis by the health-care system despite patients seeking care, underscoring the need for increased awareness of cryptosporidiosis and routine laboratory diagnostic practices among health-care providers."
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 1998 Oct 16;47(40):856-60. Outbreak of cryptosporidiosis associated with a water sprinkler fountain--Minnesota, 1997. PMID: 9790661

"The signs are that the growing strength of molecular epidemiology on the one side, and of a global epidemiology based on information systems on the other, will come to dominate epidemiology and segregate it into separate disciplines. At the same time, the links with public health interests grow weaker. A multilevel ecoepidemiology has the potential to bind these strands together."

1999
"Recognized as waterborne parasites, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and Cyclospora have now been associated with several foodborne outbreaks. The oocysts and cysts of these organisms can persist and survive for long periods of time both in water and on foods. As a result, these parasites have emerged as public health risks and have become a concern to the food industry. Control and prevention of protozoan foodborne disease depends upon our ability to prevent, remove, or kill protozoan contaminants. This review will address the biology, foodborne and waterborne transmission, survival, and methods for detection and control ...."

2000
"The environmental route of transmission is important for many protozoan and helminth parasites, with water, soil and food being particularly significant. Both the potential for producing large numbers of transmissive stages and their environmental robustness, being able to survive in moist microclimates for prolonged periods of time, pose a persistent threat to public and veterinary health. Global sourcing of food, coupled with changing consumer vogues, including the consumption of raw vegetables and undercooking to retain the natural taste and preserve heat-labile nutrients, can increase the risk of foodborne transmission. Robust, efficient detection, viability and typing methods are required to assess risks and to further epidemiological understanding."

"Various disinfection processes ...produce certain types and amounts of disinfection by-products (DBPs), including trihalomethanes (THM), haloacetic acids, haloacetonitriles, and bromate, among others. Human health risks from the ubiquitous exposure to complex mixtures of DBPs are of concern because existing epidemiologic and toxicologic studies suggest the existence of systemic or carcinogenic effects."

Teuschler LK, Gennings C, Stiteler WM, Hertzberg RC, Colman JT, Thiyagarajah A, Lipscomb JC, Hartley WR, Simmons JE. NCEA, U.S. EPA, Cincinnati, OH, USA. PMID: 10711404

"The measures needed to prevent food-borne protozoa causing disease require clear assessments of the risks of contamination and the effectiveness of processes to inactivate them. The globalisation of food production can allow new routes of transmission, and advances in diagnostic detection methods and surveillance systems have extended the range of protozoa that may be linked to food."

"...waterborne infections from agents such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Escherichia coli: O157:H7 might be transmitted from contaminated water to humans through drinking water; from interpersonal contact; or from infected individuals to the environment, and back to other susceptible individuals. These multiple pathways and the dependency of exposure on the prevalence of infection in a population suggest that epidemiological models are required to complement standard risk assessments in order to quantify the risk of infection.

Bonadonna L, Briancesco R, Cataldo C, Divizia M, Donia D, Pana A. Istituto Superiore di Sanita, Laboratorio di Igiene Ambientale, Roma, Italy. PMID: 12437220

"The transmission of Cryptosporidium and Giardia through treated water supplies that meet water quality standards demonstrates that water treatment technologies have become inadequate, and that a negative coliform no longer guarantees that water is free from all pathogens, especially from protozoan agents. Substantial concern persists that low levels of pathogen occurrence may be responsible for the endemic transmission of enteric disease. In addition to Giardia and Cryptosporidium, some species of genera Cyclospora, Isospora, and of family Microsporidia are emerging as opportunistic pathogens and may have waterborne routes of transmission. More than 15 different groups of viruses, encompassing more than 140 distinct types can be found in the human gut. Some cause illness unrelated with the gut epithelium, such as Hepatitis A virus (HAV) and Hepatitis E virus (HEV). The most striking concern is that enteric viruses such as caliciviruses and some protozoan agents, such as Cryptosporidium, are the best candidates to reach the highest levels of endemic transmission, because they are ubiquitous in water intended for drinking, being highly resistant to relevant environmental factors, including chemical disinfecting procedures."

Giardia intestinalis, Cryptosporidium parvum, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Toxoplasma gondii, Isospora/Sarcocystis sp. Encephalitozoom intestinals and Enterocytozoon bieneuisi. These parasites exist in the environment as oocyst, cysts or spores, which are the transmissive stages in many environmental conditions, e.g. water, soil, food as well as being infective stages to subsequent generation of hosts.

OF SPECIAL NOTE:

“Animal prion infections, such as scrapie (sheep) and "mad cow disease" (cattle), have shown a pattern of horizontal transmission in farm conditions and several ectoparasites have been shown to harbor prion rods in laboratory experiments. Fly larvae and mites were exposed to brain-infected material and were readily able to transmit scrapie to hamsters. New lines of evidence have confirmed that adult flies are also able to express prion proteins. … Several cell types found on the human skin, including keratinocytes, fibroblasts and lymphocytes, are susceptible to the abnormal infective isoform of the prion protein, which transforms the skin to produce a potential target for prion infection.”

BIIIIGGGGGG Post! I will read it in pieces, I promise!

Here is a theory:

1) The battle is over on Inaugeration Day

2) States still have a verification due diligence to perform, tabulation wise

3) Irregularities, both paper & electronic, are popping up like Kudzu all over

4) The public, particularly Red Staters, were looking for some "Al Gore-ism " response

5) Kerry has run a "Don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes" strategy

Let's tabulate:

Kerry would be a fool to fight it out on Rove's turf. We bore witness to the extreme mallabilty of simple minds with all of the anti-Kerry spin swallowed whole - a protracted legal charge too soo would give them all the shuffle room Rovian need. Verified malfesance would be the necessary ammo. So, I can hazzard a guess that if anything will be challenged, it will be challenged in December and it would be with both barrels blazing. Remember, everyone's perception of Kerry post concession speech is the real one that was there all along for people without Bush blinders (smart, honest, patriotic, up to any task) - there is no slander room for Rove now.

Your take sounds good. ...But you don't acknowledge his handlers. Do you think they're not there, or just that the situation is still negotiable?


...Also, Did you catch my analysis of Bush's strategy for 'domestic policy' ? Comment? ...FYI - Most of the post is "references" (scientific research).

Sorry you lost when you got to Bush declaring a national emergency because of corporate America setting a) a “bio-terrorist attack,” b) acknowledging an already existent epidemic, c) claiming that said epidemic results from bio-terrorism, or by d) H5N1 bird flu going epidemic in the USA, which it will.


I think that's a stretch to make. I think Kerry pulled the plug because he knew what the truth is. He lost. No matter what happens, whether there voter fraud or not, It will not change the outcome of this election. All of this talk about another stolen election is causing more harm to america than good. We have already seen three teenagers (Kerry supporters) take a baseball bat to a Bush supporter over the election results.

When we have troops in harms way is not the time to divide the county because of political partsianship. I think Kerry realized that and that's why it supported the President when he quit. Jesse Jackson Jr. also has stated that the election is over and we need to get behind the President in a time of war.

Well frankly, it ain't about who won really. It is about the sanctity of our elections, which at this point, with all of the irregularities that have sprung up, are in serious question. Over at letsroll911.org... a thread is going that shows how in some counties with only like 12,000 registered voters, of which 72% were democratic, bush ended up pulling like 18,000 votes. Now come ON! This is rediculous. Back to the paper trail votes only if you ask me.

I think that's a stretch to make.



...I said, Bush WILL declare a national emergency BY CLAIMING a) a “bio-terrorist attack,” b) acknowledging an already existent epidemic, c) claiming that said epidemic results from bio-terrorism, or by d) H5N1 bird flu going epidemic in the USA, which it will.


...an entirely different meaning, I'm sure you will agree.

FYI - there is a new "Unconcede John Kerry" campaign:

Everyone! Please forward to all who have specifics on vote fraud. The send-to address below is John Kerry's brother at his law firm. Kerry will unconcede if there is solid evidence of fraud. We need first hand sufferers o please get this info to them!!

FORWARD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW
EMAIL FROM DC LAWYER CYNTHIA BUTLER

I am angry and getting emails and recrimination from people wondering why KERRY just caved and is not fighting this before the final count in Ohio, before any of the fraud was challenged, before New Mexico and Iowa even came in.

There is widespread feeling that he did not lose the election and that it was taken from him.

There is enough here to warrant investigation and enough to challenge the results. It's coming from all corners.

I understand that he has until the official count certification in Ohio to Un Concede which is several days from now.

Anyone who thinks that he should unconcede should give reasons why - whatever they noticed, particularly in Red Republican Governed States using electronic machines- and send them directly to Cameron KERRY, John Kerry's brother at his law firm at the address CKerry@Mintz.com

They should inform us if they were not allowed to vote provisionally (for whatever reason- they lost forms, ran out of forms, etc.) I personally witnessed a number of things as I reported in Texas with the DCCC. (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee)

If you know anyone in particular in Ohio who tried to vote and was turned away at the polls please get their information and notify the campaign.

They should be notified if they experienced lines longer than four hours -particularly elderly or infirm people (we call that torture when they do it to political prisoners) . They should be notified if people were told as has been reported that due to too many people showing up in African American precincts, particularly in Ohio where there were too few booths (some only had two or three for the entire precinct) and told because of heavy turn out they could vote on Wednesday. If the n umbers of these sorts of incidents creates a percentage margin that exceeds the margin of victory- Un Concession has to be made to challenge the count.

If people wanted to and tried to vote and were prevented or actively discouraged from doing so, that is a Civil Rights matter and must be dealt with in terms of the ultimate count.

This is the last email that I am writing on this subject in this venue. I am taking it up in other venues.

Please pass along this to your listservs so that we may make Democracy Work in America. We are not a country where he who cheats best wins.

Yes,

I'll keep this short as well..I tend to read posts that are less than 5 times taller than my monitor..But I did give this one a once over..

Votes:
Bush more
Kerry less

Bush wins..
Kerry, Like more of a man that I gave him credit for.....conceded...

Try again, next election!!

Oh, and one other thing...
Make sure, when research is done on voter fraud, you look at ALL states, and at ALL parties...
Would you be prepared to accept that the democrats were the cheaters?
And they just weren't good enough this time around?

I have no proof of this, I was just wondering, what would happen if it turned out that way..?

It looks like all the attention this issue is getting may have prompted the Kerry camp to at least make it look like they are checking into it:



CLEVELAND - Lawyers from John Kerry’s presidential campaign are scrutinizing the results of voting in Ohio, but the campaign said the effort is not aimed at changing the outcome of the election.

"While the outcome of the election is not in doubt, no one cares more about voting irregularities than John Kerry and John Edwards,” Kerry campaign spokesman David Wade said in describing what he called a “fact-finding mission” in Ohio. “They remain committed to their pledge that every vote be counted, that's why they built an unprecedented 17,000 lawyer voter protection team to ensure that every American's rights are protected."


www.msnbc.msn.com...

Obviously, since the outcome is "not in doubt", this is just an attempt to put out the internet fires about this obvious scam of an election. Kerry took a dive, period. They have no desire to contest this IMO. They've all agreed, Bush was "elected" as President of USA Inc. Maybe the deal is, in 2008, the board will have the American people "elect" Hillary Clinton in exchange for Bush being "elected" this year.

Looks like a good call to me - and one of the more relevant responses here IMHO.

Kerry conseded BECAUSE he was in no way REALLY SUPPOSED to win. The Demo's cant run Hillary against an incumbant Democrat, so the Bush HAD to win for them to run Hillary in 2008.
Thats WHY they picked Kerry....becuase the more we learned about him the more it would SEAM maybe Bush was the less of the 2 evils......but I voted for Kerry anyway, in order to vote AGAINST Bush...(lotta good THAT did)

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I stated this idea CLEARLY in the above thread PRIOR to the election.....and it SEAMS as IF I must have been right.
Look at the outcome.

Kerry conceded, becuase it would be real awkward for Bush to have outright received more votes than Kerry, and yet Kerry still continued to campaign as the victor...now that would just be plain silly huh?


As far as Hillary running in 08, I just have to say to the fellow dems, I feel sorry for the thrashing should would get from anyone who would run against her. She stands NO chance and would be ridiculed into oblivion for even attempting the feat. But, as an libertarian, it would make for great fun to watch her try!

From another forum where voters are questioning results. I googled mintz they appear to be a national law firm and Cameron Kerry works in the Boston office.

Okay - I did not write this very well. ...What I tried to do was segue into the evidence that we are *already*in the final stages of a "Depopulation Program."

...The handlers are imposing 'benign neglect' policies that mandate letting a number of infectious diseases get totally out of control. The next part of the plan calls for confining a large number of Americans in "quarantine camps." ...This will not be hard to justify because these diseases are already epidemic, and still are being transmitted through food and water.

...Any recommendations or comments?

On what do you make the assumption she would get a thrashing? Anyways, I think you missed the point of our posts, being that it doesn't matter who the people elect. It's a scam IMO. Kinda like giving your child a fake steering wheel in his carseat, the child thinks he/she is steering. We the people are in the carseat.

There is a very good chance you are correct, let's not forget the sudden severe shortage of flu vaccine. And the fact that the FDA-Food AND Drug Administration, does not profit off healthy people, what better opportunity to profit off drugs you control, by manipulating peoples' health using the food you control. Not to mention this administrations abandonment of stem cell research and religious/moral dilemmas about scientific advances. No money to be made unless people are constantly sick and need meds to survive, even though cures for many diseases have probably been discovered.

So sorry 27jd - I lost this thread in the maze!

...I think you're dead on - the vaccine supply was purposefully manipulated. there is a strategy to make people sick and keep them sick, to up profits - but also, there is a second objective in play here.

...the world is serious trouble - the fresh water supply is drying up, which leads to food shortages and mass starvation (coming soon to the USA); climate change is turning everything upside down, and also threatening the world's food supply.

..."Popular" analysis says that overpopulation tips the scales and makes these problems overwhelming - solid science says that corporate industrial activity creates the greatest unsustainable burden.

...The coming flu epidemic and other epidemic diseases are the perfect opportunity for our corporate rulers - if they do nothing, then half the population will be wiped out, the USA and the world will be stunned and easy to control, and democracy will be neutralized.

Hail the Bush Reich and the NWO. ...by any name, it sucks.

Maybe Kerry and the Democratic Party realized they would look like first-class @&#$&% if they contributed to destabilizing the country for months and months with a legal battle over the presidency when the country is in the midst of a war & continuing terrorist threat. This isn't 2000, when "nothing was going on" & the US could coast for a while as the true winner of the election was being debated.

I'm not shooting down other theories, I 'm just saying the above theory is just as plausible & needs to be taken into account.
