Vote-by-mail is the second highest risk method of voting. It conceals three of the four crucial processes. (Internet voting, illegal in most states, is the highest risk form of voting because it conceals all four essential election processes from the public.)

1) Who can vote (the voter list)
2) Who did vote (the pollbook, or participating voter list)
3) Whether votes counted were the votes cast (chain of custody)
4) Whether counting was accurate (public can see and authenticate counting)

Vote by mail conceals #2, #3, and usually #4 from the public. I'm going to show you the details on that below, along with documented examples of insiders exploiting absentee voting processes to alter election results, and I'll point out some of the things we can do to resolve these problems.

Absentee voting is even more opaque and high-risk than most US voting methods.

Absentee voting is even more opaque and high-risk than most US voting methods. Locations with no-fault absentee voting like Marin County, California now have nearly two-thirds of all votes cast as absentee votes.

A recent ballot measure of great concern to environmentally-conscious citizens was Marin County's Novato Sanitary District "Measure F", which won by just 179 votes in June 2010. Measure F was thumped at the polls, but absentee votes flipped this to a win.

..."Measure F" concerns a controversial French company trying to to land a water contract in Novato California. The locals were up in arms about it, citing a dubious corporate reputation and a heavy-handed company financial investment in the election: http://newsblaze.com/story/20100603073032zzzz.nb/topstory.html

Places to watch for Nov. 2 election? Kentucky. Colorado, yikes! Florida.

Places to watch for Nov. 2 election? Kentucky. Colorado, yikes! Florida. Washington State, and I've particularly got my eye on Snohomish County this time. California. DuPage and Cook Counties (Illinois). Nevada. Arizona. New Jersey and Memphis Tennessee, about which I can only say "sheesh!"

But now about Kentucky: I'm here for this election, parked just outside of Louisville, in Bullitt County, watching a situation I've seen brewing since 2006. I think the Republican Party may be in for a rude awakening here in Kentucky.

The Coming Civil War: Producers Vs. Parasites

“The task of defining ideas and goals is not the province of politicians and is not accomplished at election time: elections are merely consequences. The task belongs to the intellectuals. The need is more urgent than ever.”

- Ayn Rand, “The Wreckage of the Consensus,” 1967 -

When Ayn Rand wrote the above words 43 years ago, the country was still stocked with a large majority of producers. Yes, the so-called “welfare” state and interventionist economics were on the rise, and had been for decades, but many more people than not supported themselves and their families by their own efforts.

The loss of a radical left in American politics has been catastrophic. The left once harbored militant anarchist and communist labor unions, an independent, alternative press, social movements and politicians not tethered to corporate benefactors. But its disappearance, the result of long witch hunts for communists, post-industrialization and the silencing of those who did not sign on for the utopian vision of globalization, means that there is no counterforce to halt our slide into corporate neofeudalism. This harsh reality, however, is not palatable. So the corporations that control mass communications conjure up the phantom of a left. They blame the phantom for our debacle. And they get us to speak in absurdities.

The Fed, in effect, is telling the markets not to worry about our fiscal deficits, it will be the buyer of first and perhaps last resort. There is no need – as with Charles Ponzi – to find an increasing amount of future gullibles, they will just write the check themselves.

I ask you: Has there ever been a Ponzi scheme so brazen? There has not. This one is so unique that it requires a new name. I call it a Sammy scheme, in honor of Uncle Sam and the politicians (as well as citizens) who have brought us to this critical moment..

VIDEO: Funny Money, Fraudclosure And The Fed

Ellen Brown with Max Keiser

The bankers have engaged in what amounts to a massive fraud. It is the way our system is set up: The banks are not really creating credit and advancing it to us, counting on our future productivity to pay it off, the way they once did under the deceptive but functional facade of fractional reserve lending. Instead, they are vacuuming up our money and lending it back to us at higher rates. In the shadow banking system, they are sucking up our real estate and lending it back to our pension funds and mutual funds at compound interest. The result is a mathematically impossible pyramid scheme, which is inherently prone to systemic failure.

U.S. “Quantitative Easing” is Fracturing the Global Economy

What is reversing trends that seemed irreversible for the past 65 years is the manner in which the United States has dealt with its bad-debt crisis. The Federal Reserve and Treasury are seeking to inflate the economy out of debt with an explosion of bank liquidity and credit – which means yet more debt. This is occurring largely at other countries’ expense, in a way that is flooding the global economy with electronic “keyboard” bank credit while the U.S. balance-of-payments deficit widens and U.S. official debt soars beyond any foreseeable means to pay. The dollar’s exchange rate is plunging, and U.S.

Did Obama Order British Authorities To Find Non-Existent Ink Bomb?

After having examined the suspicious ink toner device for six hours and found it to be a dud, bomb experts at East Midlands Airport only reversed their decision after being ordered to re-inspect the package by US authorities following President Obama’s Friday afternoon speech in which he claimed that the devices did in fact contain explosives.

This telling contradiction in the timeline of the cargo bomb plot fiasco proves that the story was being hyped and manipulated from the very early stages.

Government accusations: no evidence needed

"The reality, as today's version of the NYT makes clear, is that the U.S. has no idea who is responsible for sending these bombs. So in the dark are they that Homeland Security actually blamed two Yemeni schools that don't even seem to exist, with the only one remotely similar to it being one sponsored by the State Department. But no matter: within a very short time of the attempted attack's becoming public, U.S. government officials fanned out to anonymously pin the blame on Anwar Awlaki as the Mastermind, and newspapers then dutifully printed what they were told, even though nobody had any idea whether that was actually true.

Bank of America aggressively pushed complex derivatives products on customers in the midst of the financial meltdown without warning them of the substantial risks associated with them -- and even told investors the products were "extremely conservative" -- a former employee claims in a letter delivered to Securities and Exchange Commission chief Mary Schapiro.

Sales of so-called structured notes were so critical to the profitability of BofA's brokerage unit during the crisis that BofA threatened to fire workers if they didn't meet quotas or if they warned investors against the products, the anonymous whistleblower said in the letter, a copy of which has been obtained by The Post.

Our New York Times Op-Ed: How the Banks Put the Economy Underwater

In Congressional hearings last week, Obama administration officials acknowledged that uncertainty over foreclosures could delay the recovery of the housing market. The implications for the economy are serious. For instance, the International Monetary Fund found that the persistently high unemployment in the United States is largely the result of foreclosures and underwater mortgages, rather than widely cited causes like mismatches between job requirements and worker skills.

In my post yesterday, FALSE FLAGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT, I did not directly implicate Israel as one of the possible culprits of the bogus ‘terrorist attack’, but they seem to have done it themselves today by admitting they knew of it a day before anyone else did…

Strange coincidence, no?

Or …. is this their way of continuing the spread of Islamophobia throughout the Western world?

AND … if they knew about it, did they alert the Americans to it?
