NEW MADISION AVENUE LOOK COMING TO THIS BLOG?

May 24, 2016

*TOLD MUST PAY NOT TO HAVE ADVERTISEMENTS ON MY BLOG

In the midst of huge political developments, I would just like to take a moment to ask why I am apparently now being expected to pay in order NOT to have ads placed on my blog?

Sorry, dear readers, but I am not going to fork out about 100 bucks a year not to have ads. Whatever next? So prepare for a change, for a new look with flashing, glittering, animated Madison Avenue ads decorating this humble, plain blog. If I find a really funny ad, I might even feature it.

And if ads supporting  Alexis Tsipras or hedge funds run by George Soros in sparkling lights start to feature prominently, well, you will have a clue as to the unseen hand at work in all this…

Below is a screenshot of the demand to cough up to avoid advertisements. Any reader who strongly desires not to see ads on this blog is welcome to send me the 100 dollars or to pay for the “Premium” option themselves.

TRANSCRIPT PROVES DILMA ROUSSEFF IMPEACHED TO STOP CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION

May 24, 2016

From The Intercept:

The transcripts were published by the country’s largest newspaper, Folha de São Paulo, and reveal secret conversations that took place in March, just weeks before the impeachment vote in the lower house was held. They show explicit plotting between the new planning minister (then-senator), Romero Jucá, and former oil executive Sergio Machado — both of whom are formal targets of the “Car Wash” corruption investigation — as they agree that removing Dilma is the only means for ending the corruption investigation. The conversations also include discussions of the important role played in Dilma’s removal by the most powerful national institutions, including — most importantly — Brazil’s military leaders.

The transcripts are filled with profoundly incriminating statements about the real goals of impeachment and who was behind it. The crux of this plot is what Jucá calls “a national pact” — involving all of Brazil’s most powerful institutions — to leave Michel Temer in place as president (notwithstanding his multiple corruption scandals) and to kill the corruption investigation once Dilma is removed. In the words of Folha, Jucá made clear that impeachment will “end the pressure from the media and other sectors to continue the Car Wash investigation.” Jucá is the leader of Temer’s PMDB party and one of the “interim president’s” three closest confidants.

….

The second blockbuster revelation — perhaps even more significant — is Jucá’s statement that he spoke with and secured the involvement of numerous justices on Brazil’s Supreme Court, the institution that impeachment defenders have repeatedly pointed to as vesting the process with legitimacy in order to deny that Dilma’s removal is a coup. Jucá claimed that “there are only a small number” of Court justices to whom he had not obtained access (the only justice he said he ultimately could not get to is Teori Zavascki, who was appointed by Dilma and who — notably — Jucá viewed as incorruptible in obtaining his help to kill the investigation (a central irony of impeachment is that Dilma has protected the Car Wash investigation from interference by those who want to impeach her)). The transcripts also show him saying that “the press wants to take her [Dilma] out,” so “this shit will never stop” — meaning the corruption investigations — until she’s gone.

JUDGES BEING BULLIED, SAYS GREECE’S TOP JUDGE

May 24, 2016

Supreme Court President Vasiliki Thanou said on Monday that judges were being bullied and intimidated as part of “methodical efforts” by third parties on behalf of those implicated in corruption cases.

Speaking at an event marking the 21st anniversary of the National School of Judges, Thanou said judges would resist attempts to influence them.

“Recently, at a time when Greek judges and prosecutors have intensified their efforts to investigate and penalize corruption, we have seen efforts [by third parties] on behalf of those implicated to methodically slander and intimidate prosecutors and even the highest-ranking judges,” said Thanou, who also served briefly as the country’s first female prime minister, leading Greece’s interim government up until last September’s elections.

http://www.ekathimerini.com/208915/article/ekathimerini/news/judges-being-bullied-supreme-court-chief-claims

Thanou has recently been targeted by  Greek bankster, Andreas Vgenopoulos, implicated in the engineered financial crisis in Cyprus.

He took legal action against Thanou alleging bribery of judicial officials and attempted blackmail after Thanou desperately attempted to put an investigation into Vgenopoulos back on track (something she is obliged to do as President of the Supreme Court) in a pattern of misusing the empty forms of law to persecute opponents and pervert the course of justice.

http://www.ekathimerini.com/206514/article/ekathimerini/news/top-judge-to-investigate-vgenopoulos-decision

In her position, I would file a counter suit since the intention of Vgengopolis and his associates to avoid prosecution into the engineered collapse of the Laiki Bank and the Cyprus financial meltdown by obstructing a proper investigation is clear. His biased and wilful interpretation of Thanou’s actions to try to get the investigation back on track quickly, as she is obliged to do as part of her function, is a cynical misuse of criminal justice proceedings.

The fact that the bullying of judges and corruption in Greece is escalating in spite of a commitment by the government of Alexis Tsipras to improve the justice system as part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in August 2015 in return for bailout funds should be a matter of real concern for all creditor countries.

Corruption costs Greece 33 billion euros a year, the country’s top anti corruption official calculated in 2015.

http://greece.greekreporter.com/2015/10/08/greek-general-inspector-corruption-costs-the-country-33-bln-euros-each-year/

I have myself heard of credible anecdotes involving officials in the Syriza governments who  ask for bribes of 20,000 euros or more just to  do the paperwork for new business projects, and who categorically refuse to do their job until the bribe is paid even though the projects potentially bring large numbers of jobs.

 

 


AL GORE CONTESTED STOLEN ELECTION IN 2000 BUT FREEDOM PARTY ACCEPTS FRAUD WITH SHRUG

May 24, 2016

In 2000, pictures of former Vice President Al Gore battling to have a recount in the Florida vote that decided the presidentaial election dominated the media.

http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/oesterreich-wahl-fpoe-mann-norbert-hofer-verzichtet-auf-anfechtung-a-1093854.html

Gore eventually took the dispute all the way to the Supreme Court, where a recount was eventually blocked. George Bush won the battle to be President the tiniest of margins in Florida after thousands of votes were rejected and after partisan handling of absentee ballots.

In retrospect, we have to say hats off to Globalist Al Gore. Though a Globalist, he gave a good theatrical performance of trying to ensure democratic elections.

The same cannot be said of the fake opposition Freedom Party leadership which has just lost in another “Florida” style election stitch up, but cannot even be bothered mustering the appearance of anger, let alone action.

This afternoon, just one day after staggering evidence of election fraud has emerged mainly on the social media, candidate Norbert Hofer has announced he will not contest the election result which gave victory to establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen by a mere 31,000 votes.

His anaemic performance makes not just Al Gore but also Alexis Tsipras look like a first class actor.

Hofer said today that no evidence of manipulation had emerged even as the social media fills up with hard evidence of thousands of “phantom votes” for Alexander van der Bellen, which have been identified in two locations alone, Linz and Waidhausen an der Ybbs.

The head of the election authorities in the Ministry of Austria is, moreover, active as a politician for the Social Democrats in a Vienna district in a clear conflict of interest.

By deciding today without any serious investigation not to contest the election result, Hofer has betrayed voters across Austria, who deserve a fair and democratic election.  He has allowed himself to become complicit in voter fraud. His non election is no loss for Austria. The fiasco surrounding these elections is a warning to Austria’s to focus on a reform of the entire electoral system and political parties.

Freedom Party leader Heinz Christian Strache today made the faint promise to look at the countless complaints of election fraud pouring in from voters before making a decision about whether (not) to contest the vote.

Instead of wasting their time sending evidence of voter fraud to Strache, voters would do better to organize their own initiative for an investigation and a new election with another candidate.

Just minutes after calling on Austrians to vote for Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer, the facebook site of Anonymous was taken offline.

http://info.kopp-verlag.de/hintergruende/deutschland/markus-maehler/skandal-wegen-oesterreich-wahl-facebook-nimmt-hackergruppe-anonymous-vom-netz.html

Anonymous has two million and is one of the most influential social media platforms in the German speaking world, and it may have influenced the result.

However, as we now know nothing would have changed under fake opposition of Hofer, Strache and Kickl.

 


FOCUS ON DRAMATIC INCREASE IN DISCARDED VOTES IN AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

May 24, 2016

The number of votes declared invalid increased by 78% in the second round of voting for the Austrian presidential election compared to the first round, prompting speculation of voter fraud.

Establishment candidate and Green Party leader Alexander van der Bellen won the vote by a razor thin majority of only 31,000 votes through postal votes after rival Freedom Party candidate lead by 144,000 votes.

https://www.contra-magazin.com/2016/05/praesidentenwahl-in-oesterreich-soll-die-osze-auch-im-westen-wahlen-kontrollieren/

http://staatsstreich.at/oesterreich-wahl-woher-kamen-67-000-zusaetzliche-ungueltigwaehler.html

Staatstreich blog says there is no explanation for the dramatic increase in invalid votes.

The voting cards had become simpler in the second round with only two candidates left to chose from as President.

Staatstreich argues that the number of invalid votes should only have been 98,400 if it had risen in proportion to the 6.2% more votes cast in the second round.

However, the number of votes declared invalid rose to 165,212, more than 67,000 more was to be expected on the basis of the first round of voting.


600% MORE VOTES CAST IN LINZ SPECIAL CATEGORY FOR ELDERLY BEDRIDDEN PEOPLE THAN REGISTERED VOTERS

May 24, 2016

*ESTABLISHMENT GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE PROVES SURPRISING HIT AMONG ELDERLY, BEDRIDDEN VOTERS IN LINZ 

* APPARENTLY THOUSANDS MORE VOTED FOR VAN DER BELLEN THAN EXIST

*EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN ONE OLD PERSON’S HOME IN VIENNA APPLIED FOR A POSTAL VOTE

*PETITION ASKING FOR VAN DER BELLEN’S RESIGNATION GAINS 20,OOO SIGNATURES IN ONE DAY, EVIDENCE OF ELECTION FRAUD DRIVING MOTIVE

*STRACHE AND FREEDOM PARTY LEADERSHIP SHOULD RESIGN OVER FAILURE TO ENSURE FAIR VOTE AND TO CONTEST THE RESULT, ELECTION FRAUD MAKES MOCKERY OF DEMOCRACY

*EVEN THE GREEN PARTY COMPLAINED IN 2010 THAT SOCIAL DEMOCRATS HAD BRIBED MIGRANTS AND ISSUED VOTING CARDS TO PATIENTS WITH DEMENTIA TO WIN VIENNA CITY ELECTIONS

The city of Linz in Lower recorded nearly 600% percent more votes for the Presidential elections on Sunday than there were registered voters in a  special category into which mainly elderly, bedridden people and postal votes fall.

Linz

http://www.heute.at/news/politik/Linz-Mehr-Stimmen-als-Waehler-im-Sondersprengel;art23660,1292087

Linz results show that 21,060 votes were cast for a total of only 3,518 registered voters in the category of “Special zone” or “area”.

The overwhelming majority of these votes were cast for establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen at 14,533 votes.

People who are unable to go to vote themselves because they are too old (housebound or bedridden in old people’s homes) in hospitals or other centres and who ask  others to vote for them or cast postal votes for them are placed into this special category.

https://www.help.gv.at/Portal.Node/hlpd/public/content/32/Seite.320530.html

A subdivision of this special category is a “flying election commission”, which allegedly visits bedridden, presumably mainly elderly housebound people or in old people’s homes or the sick in hospitals, on the day of the election, collects their vote and casts it for them.

It is not clear what if any controls there are to ensure that the elderly people really are allowed to vote (registered?) , are fully informed, really do give their full consent and that their vote really is cast in accordance with their will by this so called “flying commission.”

Unzensuriert blog also reports that one “flying commission” representative who was ready to go to a home to collect votes was informed by email by the administration that every old person in the home was going to vote by post instead.

https://www.unzensuriert.at/content/0020590-Gesamtes-Wiener-Pflegeheim-waehlt-heute-mit-Wahlkarte

It is not clear what controls there are to ensure that the administration does not fill out the postal votes themselves.

The massive inflation in the number of postal votes and votes allegedly cast elderly bed ridden people compared to the number of actual registered voters is fuelling speculation of voter fraud in Austria.

Nearly 20,000 people signed an open petition asking van der Bellen to be removed in less than 24 hour. Signers of the petition cite evidence of election fraud as the reason why they think van der Bellen should not be recognized as President.

https://www.openpetition.eu/at/petition/online/ich-erkenne-van-der-bellen-als-meinen-praesidenten-nicht-an

There is no sign that the Freedom Party leadership is planning to have these irregularities investigated. Those who vote for the Freedom Party vote for a blank check for voter fraud as well, it seems, making a mockery of the democratic process.

In 2010, the Green Party complained that the Social Democrats had paid migrants for their vote and issued voting cards to people suffering from dementia to win the Vienna city elections.

http://diepresse.com/home/politik/wienwahl/600052/Stimmzettel-fur-Demenzkranke_SPOWahlbetrug

It is time for the Freedom Party leadership of Heinz Christian Strache and Herberg Kickl to resign. So many people have issued warnings of voter fraud and yet they did nothing to put in place a system of observers or checks to prevent it.  And they clearly have no intention of taking meaningful action to contest and rectify the fraud even as evidence of that election fraud emerges on the social media.

 

 

 


PROOF OF ELECTION FRAUD IN AUSTRIAN ELECTIONS EMERGES

May 24, 2016

*ELECTION FRAUD IN ONE RURAL TOWN INVOLVED ADDING 50% TO THE ELECTORAL ROLL

*AT LEAST 4,200 OUT OF 13,000 VOTES FAKE

*ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE ALEXANDER VAN DER BELLEN WON THE TOWN

*FRAUD SPOTTED ON INTERNET BY ORDINARY READER SCRUTINIZING LOCAL RESULTS

*INTERIOR MINISTRY FORCED TO ADMIT COULD BE MANY SIMILAR “MISTAKES”

*CORRECT RESULT ALTERED BY LOWER AUSTRIAN ELECTION AUTHORITIES IN ELECTRONIC VOTING SYSTEM

*INTERIOR MINISTRY OFFICIAL IN CHARGE OF ELECTION RESULTS AN ACTIVE SOCIAL DEMOCRAT POLITICIAN, RAISING ISSUE OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

*SUDDEN REMOVAL OF INTERIOR MINISTER JOHANN MIKL LEITNER CLEARED WAY FOR FRAUD?

*NO SIGN OF ANY CHALLENGE TO “STOLEN” VOTE BY FREEDOM PARTY LEADERSHIP

An Interior Ministry election result for a town in Lower Austria showing establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen as the winner included more than 4,000 none existent votes, apparently verifying accounts of voter fraud in Austria’s Presidential elections.

Ybbs

http://kurier.at/politik/inland/bundespraesidentenwahl-die-146-9-wahlbeteiligung-in-waidhofen-ybbs/200.560.568

The official results for the town of Waidhausen and Ybbs record 13,262 votes as being cast or 4,200 more votes than the actual number of 9,026 people on the electoral roll. Establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen won the town with 6,621 votes, bucking a nationwide trend of low support for the Green Party candidate in rural areas.

The fraud was spotted by an ordinary citizen scrutinizing the election results on the internet.

http://orf.at/stories/2340649/

It is not clear how many of the 4,200 fake votes in Waidhausen and Ybbs were allocated to van der Bellen, but it cannot be ruled out that all of them were given to him.

The official margin by which Alexander van der Bellen won the vote is a razor thin margin of 36,000 votes.

The Interior Ministry said the election result was correctly communication by the town of Waidhausen and Ybbs to the Lower Austrian election authoritie. The results were altered by the Lower Austria authorities before being sent electronically to the Interior Ministry, which aggregates all the results.

http://www.ots.at/presseaussendung/OTS_20160524_OTS0001/sichwahl-stellungnahme-des-bmi-zu-fehlerhaft-uebermittelten-daten-aus-noe

The Interior Ministry official in charge of elections, Robert Stein, admitted in the Kurier newspaper that said other similar mistakes could not be ruled out, raising the spectre of a fraudulent election result.

The Interior Ministry official in charge of elections is Robert Stein, a politician holding an office for the Social Democrat party, or SPO, in a district of Vienna, raising the issue of potential conflicts of interest.

http://www.waehring.spoe.at/mag-robert-stein

http://www.nachrichten.at/nachrichten/meinung/menschen/Robert-Stein-Waechter-ueber-die-Wahlen;art111731,223983

Furthermore, it has to be asked whether Interior Minister Johanna Mikl Leitner was removed from her position just before the elections precisely to enable election fraud to take place.

Although ostensibly promoted to the next candidate for the Governorship of Lower Austria, the suddenness and timing of the removal of Mikl Leitner by Lower Austria Governor Erwin Proell attracted speculation.

Particularly astonishing is the large showing for Alexander van der Bellen in Vienna. It defies belief that Van der Bellen received so many votes, especially from the pensioners, who in some districts exceed the number of young people, academics and professionals, who traditionally vote conservative or right wing .

https://www.wien.gv.at/statistik/bevoelkerung/tabellen/bevoelkerung-alter-geschl-bez.html

It remains to be seen whether the Freedom Party leadership will contest the results. It is not plausible that the establishment would dare to engage in such large scale and obvious voter fraud unless they could count on the complicity of the Freedom Party leadership.

The fact that a random internet user spotted the election fraud strongly suggests the notion that the Freedom Party leadership, while theatrically issuing constant warnings about postal vote fraud, made few or no concrete arrangements to organize voters to scrutinize the regular vote to ensure it was conducted fairly.

Strache announced the defeat of Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer before the official result, making Al Gore look like a better actor when he contested the “stolen election” in Florida.
