Voting rights activist Bev Harris fears the mid-term elections may have been
thrown in order to quell suspicions about vote fraud in anticipation of a
major 2008 coup. Liberal blog sites are already naively telling
whistleblowers and "conspiracy theorists" to keep quiet now that the left
arm of the establishment, the Democrats, have re-emerged.

"I think it's gonna be interesting to see which election reform groups
decide that it's not such a bad problem after all now that they have
Democrats in there because I think that some of them are actually closet
partisans," Harris told the Alex Jones Show.

"The issue here is not change in the last 24 hours - voting machines can't
be authenticated, they're not necessarily accurate, they're tamper
friendly - nothing has changed about that in 24 hours."

"We shouldn't really try to say well some Democrats are in there so now it's
OK - it's not."

However, that's exactly what a lot of left-leaning establishment types are
parroting, claiming a Democrat victory proves "American democracy still
works," and that questions about electronic voting machines should be tossed

Glenn Greenwald, an attorney and highly regarded liberal blogger, today went
on the attack against those who many in the establishment left had
previously allied with in order to take on the Neo-Cons.

"Chronic defeatists and conspiracy theorists - well-intentioned though they
may be - need to re-evaluate their defeatism and conspiracy theories in
light of this rather compelling evidence which undermines them," states
Greenwald, "Republicans don't possess the power to dictate the outcome of
elections with secret Diebold software. They can't magically produce Osama
bin Laden the day before the election."

Greenwald's naivety is rivaled only by his arrogance and we are already
beginning to have flashbacks to the Bill Clinton era, when liberals
associated their authority with the Democrats and defended their every
action without recourse.

Greenwald seems to have had a memory bypass that prevents him recalling
anything from over two years ago. The fact is that the Republicans did
produce Osama bin Laden before the 2004 election and Republicans have been
caught engaging on vote fraud across the board, including via Diebold
systems. Diebold's own Chief Executive, Walden O'Dell, committed himself to
"helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president," before the 2004

Ludicrously, Greenwald claims that six years of repeated Bush administration
assaults on the Constitution, imperial jaunts that have killed and maimed
hundreds of thousands of innocents, the degradation of how America is viewed
abroad, and the very integrity of the country, has all been reversed by the
empowerment of a party rhetorically led by Nancy Pelosi, a pro-torture,
pro-war, mobbed-up establishment sycophant who has already agreed to protect
Bush and his cronies from criminal investigations.

"All of the hurdles and problems that are unquestionably present and
serious - a dysfunctional and corrupt national media, apathy on the part of
Americans, the potent use of propaganda by the Bush administration, voter
suppression and election fraud tactics, gerrymandering and fundraising
games - can all be overcome. They just were," smarts Greenwald.

Harris encouraged people to take a look at which Democrats got voted in and
what their stance was on the issues that were supposedly the root of voter
discontent in the first place.

"I keep seeing reports on how these are the people who everyone can get
along with, so what does that mean?"

Harris is absolutely right in identifying the fact that yesterday's charade
was nothing more than re-arranging deck chairs, and this is proven again by
the fact that likely speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has already vowed to
protect Bush from criminal impeachment and the two have agreed to work
together on advancing common cause agendas, such as the mass amnesty of
illegal aliens that Bush couldn't get through under a Republican controlled
House, an issue even Rush Limbaugh is now screaming bloody murder about.

Harris called for the temporary bias of favoritism for either the
Republicans or the Democrats to be set aside in favor of the pursuit of
trustworthy voting systems and the integrity of the electoral process in the
long-term. Indicating that she had received more substantive complaints
about vote fraud than in any other election, Harris said the possibility
remained strong that this election had been thrown in order to re-invest
artificial trust in electronic voting machines and stop the momentum of
voting rights activists.

"Supposing I was really wanting to make sure that I could control elections
through voting machines," said Harris, "I would probably throw a fight now
and then because right now we have so much momentum going to get real change
and then if you make it look like 'well there's nothing to look at here,
move along,' then we won't get it fixed by 2008."

Will liberals continue to frolic around totally oblivious to the fact that
the battle has just begun, or will they finally wake up and realize that it
takes more than the re-election of Team B to stop the juggernaut of tyranny
driven by both parties that has steamrollered America since the
assassination of JFK in November 1963?

In his article, 'A Letter from Canada: The New Religious Right,' award-winning American journalist Chris Hedges exposes what few of his Canadian colleagues will, the profound changes current prime minister, Stephen Harper is importing from south of the border, and their effective undermining of Canadian society. Quoting Hedges, he says: "Stephen Harper, inspired by the neocons to the south, appears determined to visit the worst excesses of George Bush's presidency on his own country." Chris Hedges and Harper's fundamental reordering of Canada in the first half.

And; Even as America's military ideology sinks into the fetid mire of moral disgust, its outrages recently and finally recognized by that country's electorate, the Canadian establishment remains firm on the need for Canada to "stay the course," refusing to "cut and run" in Afghanistan. So enamoured with the American way is Mr. Harper, he would have Canada enjoin with it permanently, putting an end to the nation much as he killed the country's founding political party.

Connie Fogal is the leader of the Canadian Action Party, and constitutional law lawyer, who says “under agreements entered under the Liberal regime post 9/11 including the Smart Border Plan and the Security and Prosperity Partnership Agreement, Canada is now but a step away from surrendering national sovereignty and being subsumed into a so-called North American Union. Connie Fogal and the end of the entity now known as Canada in the first half.

And Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria this week. But first, Chris Hedges and Stephen Harper's pal God, ascending in Ottawa.

US: Immigrants May Be Held Indefinitely

US: Immigrants May Be Held Indefinitely
Nov 13, 9:53 PM (ET)



Immigrants arrested in the United States may be heldindefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge theirimprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday,opening a new legal front in the fight over the rights of detainees.In court documents filed with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals inRichmond, Va., the Justice Department said a new anti-terrorism law beingused to hold detainees in Guantanamo Bay also applies to foreigners capturedand held in the United States.

Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar, was arrested in 2001 whilestudying in the United States. He has been labeled an "enemy combatant," adesignation that, under a law signed last month, strips foreigners of theright to challenge their detention in federal courts.

That law is being used to argue the Guantanamo Bay cases, but Al-Marrirepresents the first detainee inside the United States to come under the newlaw. Aliens normally have the right to contest their imprisonment, such aswhen they are arrested on immigration violations or for other crimes.

"It's pretty stunning that any alien living in the United States can bedenied this right," said Jonathan Hafetz, an attorney for Al-Marri.

"It means any non-citizen, and there are millions of them, can be whisked off atnight and be put in detention."

The new law says that enemy combatants will be tried before militarycommissions, not a civilian judge or jury, and establishes different rulesof evidence in the cases. It also prohibits detainees from challenging theirdetention in civilian court.In a separate court filing in Washington on Monday, the Justice Departmentdefended that law as constitutional and necessary.

Government attorneys said foreign fighters arrested as part of an overseasmilitary action have no constitutional rights and are being afforded morelegal rights than ever.

In its short filing in the Al-Marri case, however, the Justice Departmentdoesn't mention that Al-Marri is being held at a military prison in SouthCarolina - a fact that his attorneys say affords him the same rights asanyone else being held in the United States.

The Justice Department noted only that the new law applies to all enemycombatants "regardless of the location of the detention."The Bush administration maintains that al-Marri is an al-Qaida sleeperagent. The Defense Department ordered a review of Al-Marri's status as anenemy combatant be conducted if, as requested, the case is thrown out ofcourt.
