Can you rig a Presidential election?

Can you rig a presidential election?  Yes.  It's been done in the past.  The most prominent being the 1960 JFK-Nixon election: All historians accept that vote fraud happened in Texas, Illinois, and West Virginia.  The only argument was just how massive it really was. Ike urged Nixon to dispute the election.

Did JFK Steal the 1960 Election?   A look at the vote fraud in Illinois and Texas which resulted in tipping the electoral vote from Nixon to Kennedy. 

Even Andrea Mitchell said, “Richard Nixon not challenging... that Kennedy had stolen the election in 1960, which obviously had been stolen in 1960.” 

Three prominent instances of voter fraud in US history. 

It helps when the dead can vote early and often. “We Now Have 4 Million Ineligible and Dead Voters on American Voter Rolls” says elections expert J. Christian Adams.

Pew Center - Our democratic process requires an effective system for maintaining accurate voter registration information.

But the big story of the week is the revelation of how seriously our electoral process is being corrupted this year.

The Project Veritas Action was founded by James O'Keefe who specializes in using sting and hidden camera tactics to investigate and expose "corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud and other misconduct".    This week it released 2 explosive videos revealing how DNC officials, the Clinton campaign and other coordinated organizations plan and carry out vote fraud.  In just four days, millions have watched the 2 videos.  I finally watched and found them truly shocking.

Video 1  Birddogging 

The goal of “bird-dogging”: to create a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value.

Scott Foval, National Field Director at Americans United for Change describes the coordinated communications chain between the DNC, the Clinton Campaign and Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC to instigate violence at Trump rallies said, "The campaign (Hillary Clinton) pays DNC (Democratic National Committee), DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, the Forval Group goes and executes the shit on the ground."

Foval says, "We have mentally ill people that we pay to do shit, make no mistake."  "Our union guys, they'll do whatever you want."    He details how he and other operatives recruit and train people to protest Trump events and to try to draw Trump supporters into physical confrontations. "There's a script," he says. "Sometimes the 'crazies' bite ... sometimes they don't bite."
Foval says  “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker.”

Scott Foval was fired the day after this video was aired

Video II Mass Voter Fraud

Scott Foval, Deputy Political Director at People for the American Way, a George Soros-funded organization, again, “It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, “Well, they’re bussing people in.” Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you fucking assholes for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now, we’re just going to find a different way to do it."  "If there's enough money, you have people drive their POVs (personally owned vehicles) or you have them drive rentals."

Fraudulent out-of-state voters are hired on at fake "shell companies" just so they can register to vote and are then paid for their votes through "paychecks" from those same entities.  “When I do this I think as an investigator first – I used to do the investigations. I think backwards from how they would prosecute, if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that.”

Foval also tells Project Veritas’s undercover journalist that Republicans are less adept at such tactics because they obey rules: “They have fewer guys willing to step out on the line for what they believe in. … There is a level of adherence to rules on the other side that only when you’re at the very highest level, do you get over.”

This video also features Bob Creamer, a fraudster who served time for a $2.3mm bank fraud in relation to his operation of "community organizing" groups in the 90s.  Creamer is also the founder of Democracy Partners and husband of Democrat congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. The undercover journalist details a plan to register Hispanic voters illegally having them work as contractors, to which Creamer replies that “there are a couple of organizations that that’s their big trick,” and that “turnout is huge, huge, huge.”

“Wherever Trump and Pence are going to be, we have events and we have a whole team across the country that does that both consultants and people from the Democratic Party,” Creamer told an investigator. “And the Democratic Party apparatus and the people from the campaign, the Clinton campaign and my role with the campaign, is to manage all that.”

Scott Foval says, "Bob Creamer is diabolical and I love hime for it.  I have learned so much from that man over the last twenty years, I can't even tell you.  And he calls me to be his firefighter a lot of the time because there are people who in our movement will not do what it takes to get shit done."

But no one can be Scott Foval for revealing quotes, "We have to do a better job of making our people do what they're supposed to do. Not asking them.  Making them.  Not expecting them and taking them for granted but beating the shit out of them and then making them do it." 

Robert Creamer, I have indicated to the Democratic National Committee that I am stepping back from my responsibilities working with the Campaign.

Dem Operative Who Oversaw Trump Rally Agitators Visited White House 342 Times beginning in 2009.

Robert Creamer, who acted as a middle man between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and “protesters” who tried — and succeeded — to provoke violence at Trump rallies met with President Obama 47 times, according to White House records. Creamer’s last visit was in June 2016.

Miscellany #48

The Jesuit who invented hypertext
If you surf the internet, it's thanks to Father Roberto Busa, a professor of Thomist philosophy who mastered Latin, Greek, German, French, English and Spanish in addition to his native Italian.  He spent 50 years and completed an index and concordance of the writings of St Thomas Aquinas, a work in 56 volumes of almost a thousand pages each.  Then

...he met with the founder of IBM, Thomas Watson, in order to produce a digital version of the Index in which a researcher could effectively search for related concepts in Aquinas’ work. Watson told Busa that the computers they had back then could not relate the contents included in the Index in any way. But Busa, of course, insisted.This conversation gave birth to the hypertext project: a structure for sharing and linking information between different sources, through links.

A Macro Timelapse Highlights the Micro Movements of Spectacularly Colored Coral   Mesmerizingly beautiful reminder that corals are living things of fantastic strangeness.


Interested in documenting one of the oldest animals on Earth, Barcelona-based production company myLapse set to capture the minimal movements of brightly colored coral, recording actions rarely seen by the human eye. The short film took nearly 25,000 individual images of the marine invertebrates to compose, and photography of species, such as the Acanthophyllia, Trachyphyllia, Heteropsammia cochlea, Physogyra, took over a year.
