Investigative reporter Greg Palast spoke in Portland on Monday evening, June 5, 2006, to packed house at the First Unitarian Church. The event was sponsored by KBOO radio, 90.7 fm and the Portland Alliance newspaper.
His appearance was part of an international tour called, "Armed Madhouse: Dispatches From the Front Lines of the Class War."
Palast was his usual flippant, humorous and sarcastic self. Yet, under this veneer he unleashes serious facts and devastating statistics which, at least to my mind, leave no doubt as to the deliberate fraud perpetrated on the American voter during the 2000 and 2004 general election.
For instance, 2004 exit polls showed John Kerry ahead 51% to George Bush 49 among men and 53% to 47% among women. "Okay class, what is the third sex that put George Bush over the top...... the disappeared, the uncounted." [ read more ]
From my little note pad...
Greg urged all of us to write our County Election Clerks and demand Verified Elections in Oregon.
He told of spoiled votes and how he once flew to New Mexico And there he found 34,000 uncounted ballots in the garbage so to speak Problems with chads, touch screens, and GLITCH's these were the "spoiled votes".
He discusses the other type of "rejected ballots" which also were not counted. These were known as "provisional ballots". Which were all those Military Ballots, that were returned because they couldn't be "forwarded to the soldier's location" Resulting in many Soldiers that didn't get to vote at all. And ALL, by the way, were black soldiers. [ read more ]
