Top 10 'Conspiracy Theories' about George W. Bush, Part 2
by Maureen Farrell

4. G.W. Bush Conspired with Others to Steal the 2000 and 2004 Elections.



"There was one exact moment, in fact, when I knew for sure that Al Gore would Never be President of the United States, no matter what the experts were saying -- and that was when the whole Bush family suddenly appeared on TV and openly scoffed at the idea of Gore winning Florida. It was Nonsense, said the Candidate, Utter nonsense. . .Anybody who believed Bush had lost Florida was a Fool. The Media, all of them, were Liars & Dunces or treacherous whores trying to sabotage his victory . . Here was the whole bloody Family laughing & hooting & sneering at the dumbness of the whole world on National TV. The old man was the real tip-off. The leer on his face was almost frightening. It was like looking into the eyes of a tall hyena with a living sheep in its mouth. The sheep's fate was sealed, and so was Al Gore's."
-- Hunter S. Thompson, ESPN, Nov. 27, 2000

" sense of how to win elections comes out of a CIA manual, not out of the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution."
-- Former GOP strategist Kevin Phillips, BuzzFlash, Jan. 7. 2004

While some believe a coup began on Sept. 11, others will tell you it began with the 2000 election. Even though George Bush's first cousin declared him the winner and his brother Jeb assured him he'd won Florida, many Americans remained unconvinced.

First there was the surreal sight of the Bush family on national TV, as staged and phony as Susan Smith's tearful plea to return her "kidnapped" children. Then came the well-groomed thugs, sent on Enron and Halliburton planes to stop the Florida recount. But it wasn't just James Baker's ploys or the Supreme Court's ruling that signaled something was amiss -- it was the attitude of ordinary citizens who were more concerned about their "team" winning than about democracy itself.

Unless you rely solely on FOX news (the modern equivalent to "living under a rock"), the shenanigans that occurred in pre-election Florida are now old news, and have been dissected at length in documentaries, magazines and to some degree, in the mainstream press. A St . Petersburg Times op-ed later deemed the election "stolen," the Associated Press reported that Florida had "quietly" admitted "election fraud," and Vanity Fair devoted a sizable portion of its Oct. 2004 issue to exactly how Team Bush pulled it off. By the time CNN sued the state of Florida for its ineligible voters list in 2004, the underbelly of the beast was plainly visible.

But in Nov. 2001, when Greg Palast uncovered then Secretary of State Katherine Harris' role in the shameful voter roll purge in Florida, the news was explosive. The New York Times -- the paper that would later print front page disinformation to sell the war in Iraq -- took a pass, however, until three years later, when it was too late to do anything about it.


AND MUCH MUCH MORE...

1. Her Part II is alot to digest in one reading..but it's incredibly damning
and as in Part I she has "LINKS" which back up what she says.

It's a good download for later read for the Weekend for DU'ers who have little time for long reads with links that need to be hit and read...but for many of the rest of us..who already have her links embedded in our brains, it's a great REFRESHER COURSE about the LIES OF THE BUSHIES!

Kick and Recommend!

2. At the first reading in this forum I would start simply with No. 4
Which I have now extracted to here...

G.W. Bush's 2000 & 2004 Election Conspiracy
http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0602/S00087.htm

With regards to the entire piece - Parts 1 and 2 - .. it is a masterpiece.... albeit one you really need to allocate a bit of time to look through.

3. You don't stage a coup without having an agenda.

4. Excellent compilation with lots of links to source media. Favorite quote:
"If electronic voting machines programmed by private Republican firms remain in our future, dissent will become pointless unless it boils over into revolution," former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts wrote. "Power-mad Republicans need to consider the result when democracy loses its legitimacy and only the rich have anything to lose."

7. I often wonder if it is so far gone that revolution is the only option.
The next few years will tell. We are winning a lot of victories, but those in power are very entrenched.
