Grim News: The Fix May Already Be In For GOOPs To Steal The 2016 Election

No, not by using the voter I.D. ploy, now popular in many Southern states, but by the same ES&S voting machines used to snatch the 2004 election from John Kerry in Ohio, as presented in the superb documentary 'As Ohio Goes, So Goes The Nation'.   At the time I recall being enraged that John Kerry and running mate John Edwards didn't fight to pursue an investigation when mounds of evidence were available (including tens of thousands of uncounted "provisional" ballots) that showed the OH electoral votes were stolen. But then, given Kerry didn't fight back after being slimed by the 'Swift Boat Veterans for Truth', it made a kind of perverse sense he wouldn't raise a hue and a cry after being brought down by electronic voting machines in Ohio.

According to Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman, in their latest piece on smirkingchimp.com:

"There are two things we all need to know about the upcoming 2016 election:
  1. Millions of likely Democratic voters have already been stripped from the voter rolls in critical states like Ohio. The key reporting on this has been done by the great Greg Palast, who has shown that a computer program coordinated by the Republican secretary of state of Kansas is being used in some two dozen states to steal from a substantial percentage of the citizenry their right to vote. The raw numbers are high enough that they could have a significant impact on the presidential, US Senate, House and many other elections this fall. The ACLU has now sued Jon Husted, Ohio’s secretary of state, over the stripping of two million citizens from Ohio's voter rolls.
  1. There is no way to verify the official tally on the electronic machines on which the majority of Americans will vote this fall. Nearly all the machines are a decade old, most are controlled by a single company (ES&S, owned by Warren Buffett) and the courts have ruled that the software is proprietary, making the vote counts beyond public scrutiny. In fact, they are beyond all independent monitoring altogether. In many key swing states (including Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Arizona) GOP governors and secretaries of state will have a free hand to flip the vote count to whatever they want it to be without detection or accountability. This could turn control of our government over to the GOP come November, as it did in 2000 and 2004.
These two critical markers of the upcoming national election are at center stage in our compendium The Flip & Strip Selection of 2016: Five Jim Crows and Electronic Election Theft (www.freepress.org / www.solartopia.org), which we’ll be publishing at the end of April.
For some reason many on the left have had a hard time accepting these realities. But they’re in fact far more critical than the question of who will make the better Democratic candidate.
In the interim, the usually solid Josh Holland has published a piece at The Nation with which we must take issue. It challenges writings that have put forward the idea that Hillary Clinton might be stealing the primaries from Bernie Sanders."

Why isn't there a mammoth, outsized outcry? As opposed to the smug MSM take that this election is "in the bag" for Hillary (as the most likely Dem nominee- especially if she wins New York by a sizeable margin)? The most likely reason is that this news simply isn't being reported - for whatever reason - in the corporate media. Perhaps that media doesn't believe the existing evidence validates it but if people aren't aware - they can't act in time (though the ACLU is trying to by filing suit in Ohio against Jon Busted.)
