TheoCon Doms Reveal Their Hand!

The Dominionists are showing their hand quite directly. This article will make your hair stand on end if you've been following the Madsen investigations. Just like Hitler in Mein Kampf, just like the PNACers, these people put right out their the NeoFascist agenda they have in mind.

NYT's article:
Movement in the Pews Tries to Jolt Ohio


Published: March 27, 2005

Greg Sailor for The New York Times
The Ohio secretary of state, J. Kenneth Blackwell, has the support of the state's conservative church leaders.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Christian [JamBoi note: Not!] conservative leaders from scores of Ohio's fastest growing churches are mounting a campaign to win control of local government posts and Republican organizations, starting with the 2006 governor's race.

In a manifesto that is being circulated among church leaders and on the Internet, the group, which is called the Ohio Restoration Project
, is planning to mobilize 2,000 evangelical, Baptist, Pentecostal and Roman Catholic leaders in a network of so-called Patriot Pastors to register half a million new voters, enlist activists, train candidates and endorse conservative causes in the next year.

The initial goal is to elect Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, a conservative Republican, governor in 2006. The group hopes to build grass-roots organizations in Ohio's 88 counties and take control of local Republican organizations.

"The establishment of the Ohio Republican Party is out of touch with its base," said Russell Johnson, the pastor of the Fairfield Christian Church and the principal organizer of the project. "It acts as if it lives in Boston, Mass."

I must say these people have brazeness if nothing else. Here's one insinuating somehow he's more Republican than the Republicans and inviting the Republicans who aren't Domionist enough to join the Dems:

"We're very confused that you have a Republican Party platform, and yet people running for higher office pay no attention to it," said Phil Burress, the leader of the Issue 1 campaign, who is also helping organize the Restoration Project. "Why don't they just become Democrats?" he asked.

I encourage everyone to read the whole article at the NYT's site

Wrap up of "Stop U.S. Vote Rigging Now!": San Jose, Sat. Mar 26th

It went well IMO.  I was the MC. It was all videotaped by Penny Little (producer of the upcoming movie Electile Dysfunction) and we are going to try to get it up on the web soon.

Peter Drekmeir did a fabulous job of laying out the whole picture of Fraud '04.  See his website electionfraud2004.org

Emily Levy www.juiceforjustice.com spoke about the tell-tale statistics that assure us there was massive fraud on and after Nov. 2nd and how to connect to groups that are making a difference.

Singer-songwriter Laramie Crocker of LaramieCrocker.com rocked the house with songs of taking back our country from the black box voting machines.

Alan Dechert, Pres/Founder of OVC (OpenVoting.org) was the keynote speaker and the main topic of the day was "Open Voting Systems".  Between Alan and Jim March (of BlackBoxVoting.org) they defined "Open Voting" as transparent, verifiable, electronic voting with open source software, fully logged chain-of-custody of all votes (meaning recorded names of every single person who has takes any administrative action on the voting machines, tabulators or ballots).

In OVC's software proposal the print out sheet of the vote IS the actual ballot.   It has a UPC code that represents the votes on the various races, which can be verified by the voter before the voter puts their ballot in the ballot box.  This verification process can take place no matter whether the voter is english literate or not or even if the voter is blind.  The voting machine in the OVC proposal is basically just a printer that also records a backup tally of the votes that can be used to audit and double-check the counting of the actual ballots.  I was impressed.

Alan said the first certifiable OVC software would probably be tabulation software sometime next year.

About 50 people.  Some lively discussion. There was a little controversy in the form of a couple of folks who were paper-only voting advocates trying to start a debate which was inappropriate at that point and place.  I said the paper-only position has vitues and that the rest of the democratic world operates on that basis.    I offered to set up a followup meeting that would be a real full-on debate between paper-only and open voting advocates.  Unfortunately none of the paper-only folks came up to me to help me get such a get-together so I don't know if I'll be able to get it going.  Too bad.  I didn't get their names, but if they contact me I'll still follow through.

Rep. Gibbons (R-NV): Liberals Should Be Human Shields in Iraq

I agree with this dK poster: Gibbons has demonstrated unfitness for leadership in our great democracy and needs to resign immediately.


Rep. Gibbons (R-NV): Liberals Should Be Human Shields in Iraq by

Wed Mar 2nd, 2005 at 14:12:10 PST
Jim Gibbons, an extremist Republican Congressman from Nevada, offers the latest version of the GOP "dissent is treason" talking points, coupled with the threat of violence against political opponents:
"I say we tell those liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else," Gibbons said to another burst of applause.
He said that they are the same people who wanted to go to Iraq and become human shields for the enemy.
"I say it's just too damn bad we didn't buy them a ticket," Gibbons said.

Laughter rippled through the room, mingled with more applause. (Emphasis added.)

This kind of hate speech has no place in civil society. By engaging in such base commentary, Rep. Gibbons has declared himself unfit to hold office and must resign.

BlogSwarm NeoFascisti Rep. Gibbons (R-NV): Ed Schultz challenges blogosphere

I LOVE "Big Eddie" Ed Schultz, so this Recommended Diary on dk got my attention immediately.


Ed Schultz challenges blogosphereby Anglico
Wed Mar 2nd, 2005 at 13:40:40 PST

Big Eddie was on an awesome rant today about the fascist comments of Rep. Jim Gibbons to a foaming-at-the-mouth red-state crowd. Apparently, Rep. Gibbons suggested in his comments that liberals should be used as human shields for our illustrious troops in Iraq.

'Where's the blogosphere on this?' Schultz said. 'All you bloggers who want to take on the media, how come you're not all over this?' This is not an exact quote, just what I heard in my car.

It seems to me that Schultz is calling for a blogswarm to take Gibbons to task. Any chance we could start up a killer bee frenzy and take the Nazi out?

This is the only reference I could find so far.

Also from a poster this story.

I don't know about you, but I can't stand letting the fascista get away with this kind of crap. Yet, far too often, they do. Even in a blood red state that features the sin capital of the western hemisphere, they surely have some scruples. Do we really want to stand by and allow an elected representative of We the People call for 49% of the country to be used as human shields in a combat zone?

The sad part is, Gibbons is such a braggart about his own military career in the Air Farce. Too bad someone on his staff didn't remind him that there are plenty of liberals in the US armed services over in Iraq doing his party's immoral dirty work.

Being Silent on the Things that Matter

This is a great diary from myDD's "Political Junkie". Here's a sample...

Being Silent on the Things that Matter
by Political Junkie

From the diaries--Chris

This past weekend, I attended Tavis Smiley's "State of the Black Union" Conference in Atlanta, GA. As I sat in the santuary of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, a quote of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s replayed in my head like a refrain from a song. The quote is "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." While it did my heart and spirit a world of good to hear heavyweights in the Civil Rights movement like Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, or the Rev. Joseph Lowery, Michael Eric Dyson or Minister Louis Farrakhan, exhorting those of us in the audience and watching on C-Span, my mind kept repeating Dr. King's quote.

Can we continue to be silent on the matter of no longer having a free press, freedom of expression or the freedom to participate in political dissent, because dissent is essential to having true democracy?

Can we continue to be silent on the matter of a government whose sole mission is to continue to reward the wealthy at the expense of the poor?

Can we continue to be silent on the matter of not having a guaranteed, fundamental, inalienable right to a quality education, affordable, liveable, sustainable housing, not to mention a sustainable and replenishing environment, quality healthcare and jobs that pay liveable, sustainable, family-supportable wages?

Great Bush Quote. Little Does He Know!

Little does Mini Me realize that the Fiercehearted Faction is doing exactly this and he will fall because of it!

"Governments must choose to fight corruption, abandon old habits of control,
protect the rights of conscience and the rights of minorities. Governments must
invest in the health and education of their people, and take responsibility for
solving problems instead of simply blaming others. Citizens must choose to hold
their governments accountable. The path isn't always easy, as any free people
can testify -- yet there's reason for confidence. Ultimately, men and women who
seek the success of their nation will reject an ideology of oppression, anger,
and fear. Ultimately, men and women will embrace participation and progress."

-- G.W. Bush

Irish-American Heritage Month: March

Newsflash: President Bush actually did something right! Last year he proclaimed March Irish-American Heritage Month

Most don't know it, but March truly is Irish-American Heritage Month.

Its time to prepare for St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Please lets make it a little deeper than green beer and "a top 'O the morn' to ya". Here's some of the things we have to be proud of a Irish-Americans besides numerous U.S. presidents (not to mention John Kerry U.S. President-in-Exile for the next 4 years).

Irish or not, please enjoy with us the "luck of the Irish"! :-)

News Flash! UN: Sports Contests to Replace Wars!

This just in from the planet Peacenia, a parrallel universe/alternative reality to Earth: Koffee Annanda of the United Nations is proposing that from here on in, instead of physical wars with people getting killed, all international conflicts will be resolved by sports contests. Nations could select from a variety of options, but all would be strictly controlled games in which cheating would not be tolerated (no dismemberment or death allowed either). The actual leaders would be locked in the room to duke it out and no innocents would be needlessly injured. No "collateral damage".

One of the more popular options in the proposal is an Arena Football League game: High scoring, violent, definitley has the strategy factor and yes, people do get injured to appeal to the Amerikan Empire. Amerikan football is getting popular world-wide in Urope and Napan as well, so it is thought this may be the option generally selected.

Wisdomistan has suggested chess be the standard, however the Amerikan Emperor Shrub immediately objected and it was thought that he was concerned that his lack of intelligence would cost dearly if it was up to him to represent the Amerikan Empire.

Another popular suggestion has been paintball. Leaves a welt so it might deter imperialist types from getting too excited about land aquisition via paintball. More details to follow...
