Have Voting Machines Already Made their Choice for Prez?
And to add - Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections - With Electronic Voting Machines, Why Bother to Vote?
UNCOUNTED shares well documented stories about the spine-chilling disregard for the right to vote in America. In Florida, computer programmer Clint Curtis is directed by his boss to create software that will “flip” votes from one candidate to another. In Utah, County Clerk Bruce Funk is locked out of his office for raising questions about security flaws in electronic voting machines. Californian Steve Heller gets convicted of a felony after he leaks secret documents detailing illegal activities committed by a major voting machine company. And Tennessee entrepreneur, Athan Gibbs, finds verifiable voting a hard sell in America and dies before his dream of honest elections can be realized. - http://undergrounddocumentaries.com/uncounted-the-new-math-of-american-elections-full-version/
And to add - Democracy denied: Millions of Americans blocked from voting
Voter suppression efforts today echo 19th century efforts to block urban immigrant working class from casting vote.
And to add - How Wall Street Won the Election Long Before The First Vote Was Cast
Before the campaign contributors lavished billions of dollars on their favorite candidate; and long after they toast their winner or drink to forget their loser, Wall Street was already primed to continue its reign over the economy.
For, after three debates (well, four), when it comes to banking, finance, and the ongoing subsidization of Wall Street, both presidential candidates and their parties’ attitudes toward the banking sector is similar – i.e. it must be preserved – as is – at all costs, rhetoric to the contrary, aside.
Obama hasn’t brought ‘sweeping reform’ upon the Establishment Banks, nor does Romney need to exude deregulatory babble, because nothing structurally substantive has been done to harness the biggest banks of the financial sector, enabled, as they are, by entities from the SEC to the Fed to the Treasury Department to the White House.
What if one continues to vote, and continues to vote, and continues to vote, yet nothing changes for the positive in the lives of these American citizens, and very likely becomes worse economically for them?
That is the dilemma in which an increasing number of Americans find themselves this election.

Drone-murders of Americans ‘Totally right, totally Constitutional’: Homeland Security
... Homeland Security Chairperson
… and if you question it, you are “a horrible moron,” concludes Peter T. King, Chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security.
This 2-minute video from We Are Change Luke Rudkowski powerfully captures what US “leadership” has become. The good news is their arrogance and evasion is only tragic-comic sideshows to the “emperor has no clothes” obvious facts of their massive crimes centering in war and money.
Ben Swann and the Media's NDAA Problem
Memo to Homeland Security Chair King: sir, as a woman of both faith and logic, I question this rationale very intensely, as does every other thinking American.
My only question here, sir, is how soon do you and your colleagues intend to use extrajudicial assassinations against American citizens here at home?
What is the time frame you all envision for such actions against American citizens, and what will the "trigger" be?!? Some kind of massive riots (for which obviously the Federal Government has been vigorously preparing, with huge purchases of bullets, including man-killer hollow points)?!?
Sir, the only things these extrajudicial assassinations abroad have done are:
1. Kill and maim hundreds, if not thousands, of non-combatants; children, women, and the medically fragile elderly.
2. Inspire those who wish our military harm to join the unrest against US military assets overseas.
3. Telegraphs to the world that the US is not a country of laws, but a country of men (and some women) who bend the law to their liking, giving them the rationale to kill with impunity in order to prop up the petrodollar; neutralize Israel's enemies; and expropriate resources in other countries to which the US government has no moral right.
The United States is no longer a country of the people, by the people, and for the people; it has become a government by the money junky corporations (who purchase your and your colleagues' votes on legislation); for the money money junky corporations, and of the money junky corporations.

THE MONEY FIX examines economic patterning in both the human and the natural worlds, and through this lens we learn how we can empower ourselves by redesigning the lifeblood of the economy at the community level. The film documents three types of alternative money systems, all of which help solve economic problems for the communities in which they operate.

"In the book Columbus and other Cannibals, indigenous author Jack D. Forbes lucidly explores a psychological disease that has been informing human self-destructive behavior that Native American people have known about for years. After reading his book, it was clear to me that he was describing the same psycho-spiritual disease of the soul that I wrote about in my book, The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of our Collective Psychosis. I introduce the idea that from the dawn of human history our species has fallen prey to a collective psychosis which I call malignant egophrenia. Speaking about this very same psychic epidemic, Forbes writes, "For several thousands of years human beings have suffered from a plague, a disease worse than leprosy, a sickness worse than malaria, a malady much more terrible than smallpox."[i] Indigenous people have been tracking the same "psychic"[ii] virus that I call malignant egophrenia for many centuries and calling it "wetiko," a Cree term which refers to a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes others. Professor Forbes, who was one of the founders of the Native American movement during the early sixties, says, "Tragically, the history of the world for the past 2,000 years is, in great part, the story of the epidemiology of the wetiko disease."[iii] Wetiko/malignant egophrenia is a "psychosis" in the true sense of the word as being a "sickness of the soul or spirit." Though calling it by different names, Forbes and I are both pointing at the same illness of the psyche, soul and spirit that has been at the root of humanity's inhumanity to itself."
Luke Rudkowski hits the streets of NYC to find out where Obama supporters really stand on his policies. Now he did this in an underhanded way where the policies where presented to be Romney's, but this was only done to get an honest opinion. The reactions when the truth was uncovered varied but they were very telling to say the least.
Here are some of the sources that were mentioned throughout the interviews
Labor Department Says No Decision Yet on Whether to Delay Jobs Report
The Labor Department said Monday that it has yet to make a decision on whether to delay Friday’s closely-watched October employment report due to the effects from Hurricane Sandy.
Federal government offices in Washington are closed Monday and may be shut again Tuesday due to the storm. It isn’t clear if the closure would cause a delay in processing the data.
“We will assess the situation when the weather emergency is over and notify the press and public of any changes at that time,” said Gary Steinberg, spokesman for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the data arm of the department.
