Crisis in the San Francisco Green Party
The SF delegation and Medea Benjamin—who was not elected by the chapter but received a delegate's credential—joined this national group of apparatchiks. They cast their votes for Cobb in open defiance of the 75% of Green voters in California who chose Camejo, who ran in the primaries (and received 33,000 votes) standing as a proxy for Nader

The Green Left
After the Milwaukee Convention of the Green Party, most leaders of the Green Party have lined up to oppose and denounce the Demogreens, who rigged the Convention with fake delegations and stuffed the ballot boxes with the votes of unknown small bureaucrats.

David Cobb was successful in defeating the endorsement of Ralph Nader-Peter Camejo, but he does not seem to be acquiring much capital out of it. In fact, it's possible that his candidacy will deprive the Green Party of its ballot status in several states, as he is not likely to overcome the death kiss of the one percentile candidates.

Cobb vs. Nader at the Milwaukee Convention, as seen by a Massachusetts Delegate
by Aram Falsafi, Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts

Ever since the Milwaukee convention, many on the left (both within and outside
the GP) have claimed that Cobb's nomination was a takeover of the party by the
Anybody But Bush (ABB) crowd, and a sign of the Green Party turning itself into
an appendage of the Democrats.

The mystery of the 2004 elections
There is a mystery to the 2004 presidential election; a silence has fallen on America regarding a glaring contradiction. As we enter the second half of 2004, there is massive popular opposition to the war in Iraq and to the USA PATRIOT Act -- possibly a majority of Americans. Yet these same people are about to vote in overwhelming numbers for John Kerry for President.

Barbara Ehrenreich argues that women should own up to our abortions in her New York Times column. We can begin doing so by wearing a beautiful "I Had an Abortion" T-shirt made available by Planned Parenthood -- the T-shirt denounced by anti-abortion right-wing groups. The designer of the T-shirt, Jennifer Baumgardner, is also "making a documentary called I Had an Abortion that features women who don't regret having abortions."

How can we expect him to pay a $784,800 mortgage and put 2 kids thru college?

Pathetic! Obviously, this man needs OUR help! So please, I beg you! Open your hearts and your wallets and give generously to this shell of a once proud man and his family.

The DNC is now complete and not a single report of an attack against the media has surfaced. Had such an attack occurred, it is doubtless that the media would have hyped it. No such attack occurred. Here is an article instigated by the FBI concerning the alleged plot by protesters to terrorize the media: Nets warned of threat.

In The Wake of Kerry's Speech, the Conservative Mainstream Press Hit Men Go To Work
It's interesting to watch the way that CNN, Fox, NBC, and the rest of the mainstream media these days...

"He gave a very impressive speech, but it's important to remember how carefully staged these speeches are..."

"He did a great job of trying to outplay the right to the right..."

"Kerry... A whole bunch of gibberish..."

"It sounded like a temp agency saying 'Help is on the way.'"

MIDDLE-EASTERN INVADERS CAUGHT CROSSING FROM MEXICO IN COCHISE COUNTY IN PAST SIX WEEKS
Information officer Andy Adame, from the Border Patrol Tucson sector says, "I guarantee it's not true."
However, seasoned Border Patrol field agents have shared some disturbing information with the Tumbleweed as well as other civilian sources with the hope the information will make it to the general public. The Tumbleweed has verified information that a flood of middle-eastern males have been caught entering the country illegally east of Douglas, Arizona. The increased patrols in the Huachuca Mountains area of Cochise County, seems to have diverted the flow of OTM's, "other than Mexicans" east to the Chiricahua Mountains.
