The GOP Trolls are at it again, trying to use subterfuge to gain the upper
hand in an election. Diebold and other electronic voting machines have been
decertified in California and Florida after they were easily hacked. Yet
the Iowa GOP straw poll refuses to allow a verifying 5821.html
hand vote.
"Today's fully electronic voting machines do not provide any way to audit
the election," said Aviel Rubin, professor of computer science at Johns
Hopkins University. "In particular, if there is any controversy about the
outcome, a recount is impossible. We would just have to live with the
result." Rubin co-authored a seminal report on the security flaws in current
electronic voting machines.
Sancho began investigating the problem after watching the votes come in
during the infamous 2000 presidential election. In Volusia County precinct
216, a memory card added more than 200 votes to George W. Bush's total and
subtracted 16,000 votes from Al Gore. The mistake was later corrected during
a hand count.
"Diebold, the controversial electronic voting machine manufacturer, is
coming off a tumultuous week. Its chief executive, Walden O'Dell, resigned.
It was hit with a pair of class-action lawsuits charging insider trading and
misrepresentation, and a county in Florida concluded that Diebold's voting
machines could be hacked. The company...reached a multimillion-dollar
settlement with the California attorney general last year of a lawsuit
alleging that it made false claims about the security of its machines."

Iowa GOP Extorting Ron Paul Campaign

Editor on 07 August, 2007 14:39:00

Director of communications for the Ron Paul Campaign, Jesse Benton, stated
today that the Iowa GOP would charge the Paul camp $184,000 if they wanted
to verify a paper count of the coming Iowa straw poll. Today, on the Dale
Williams radio show, Mr. Benton said there will be a manual electronic count
of the Iowa poll results. What Mr. Benton did not explain, as exposed in a
previous National Expositor <>
Article, "it is commonly known that this manual count" with Diebold machines
"would only consist of spot checks of the voting machines for device
calibration purposes. This does not constitute a verifiable check of the
accuracy from either an engineering or statistical perspective."

<> Interview
In what amounts to extortion, the Iowa GOP is telling the Ron Paul
campaign they must pay an excessive amount of money to manually verify the
results in this weeks' poll. Both Florida and California have recently
decertified the same electronic Diebold voting machines that will be used in
Iowa. The validity of the upcoming Iowa straw poll should not rest on one
campaign but is the responsibility of the Iowa GOP.
You must let the Iowa GOP know that you disapprove of the use of decertified
Diebold electronic voting machines and nothing short of a verifiable manual
paper ballot would be acceptable for the Iowa straw poll this week.
This is a call to action, anyone who wants a verifiable election must call
the Iowa GOP and demand a back up paper count. Iowa Republican Party -

Final Piece Of Iowa GOP
Treachery In Straw Poll 2007
Network America e-wire

Sit down. Katie bar the door. Hold on to your hat.

Intrepid activist and radio talk show host Ernest Hancock of Arizona has
flushed out the FINAL PIECE OF TREACHERY planned by the Iowa GOP - IF they
continue on their present anti-American course with regard to "counting" the
ballots in the 2007 Iowa Straw Poll.

We have already explained that they are counting the votes on the
discredited Diebold computers - that one page article can be found here:

We have already explained in the above article that they plan to have voters
feed their ballots into the Diebold compartments - most of which ballots
will never be seen again!

Then - at the end of voting at 6 PM on this Saturday, August 7, at the Ames,
Iowa Straw Poll, -- the GOP designated officials make each of the sixty
Diebold machines produce a paper receipt - which has the name of each
candidate - and the alleged totals from that machine. (All ballots stay
TIGHTLY locked in the black box inside the Diebold computers.)

And then an Iowa GOP spokesman would announce the "results" on stage at the
Hilton Coliseum at the Iowa State University - with all the ballots still
locked away from news media, candidates, the public. And then the national
newsmedia, as they like to call themselves -- is supposed to announce these
computer-generated "results" to the nation. (In the America I once knew - we
used to count the ballots BEFORE we announced the results!)

In their first round of literature about the "count", the GOP of Iowa said
they would have an "audit" of some kind AFTER they announced the result. So,
we and others wondered, -- does that mean they will count 1% of the ballots
by hand? 2%? , , , all the ballots?

Iowa GOP spokesmen wouldn't say - and their story kept morphing about what
would happen. AND NOW . . .


Here's the incredible information flushed out by Ernest Hancock. Let's let
him tell it - with the link to the entire article at the Freedom's Phoenix
website listed below:

>From Ernest Hancock on Freedom's Phoenix:

"I did my best to determine the method of validating the election results
and could get no "official" response until today. Mary Tiffany is the Iowa
State GOP Communications Director. After finally getting her on the phone
and introducing myself as a visiting radio talk show host from Phoenix she
was kind enough to take my questions seriously and promised to get back to
me today. I had planned to arrive at their downtown office in Des Moines
should she not call me by 4:30 pm Iowa time. I was on my way to the Iowa
State GOP HQ when I received Mary's call at 4:35 pm. She was clear and
straight to the point.

"Each campaign was welcome to have representatives witness the feeding of
the paper ballots into the counting computers but that there would not be a
manual count of any kind. I then asked what would happen to the original
paper ballots. She asked me to hold for a moment while she checked. In our
earlier phone conversation she said that I needed to talk to "Eric" the Iowa
State GOP's Political Director so I can only imagine she was likely getting
directions from him. She came back on the line to say that the paper ballots
would remain with the machines and would not elaborate further. I asked if
the paper would be destroyed and she would not/could not answer.

"So there you have it. The same machines that California just decertified 3
days ago and Florida is in the spot light about as well, are going to be
used to determine the future . . . ."

(End of quote from Ernest Hancock and his conversation with the Iowa GOP.)

The whole article is found here:


Soooooooooooooooo! The candidates are allowed to watch the ballots be fed by
the voter into the black box Diebold computers. --- But THERE WILL BE NO
HAND COUNT OF EVEN ONE BALLOT. The ballots will never be seen again. They
might even be destroyed shortly after the event so that no one can ever
again check the announced computer result !!

Dear Friends, -- this is the way ALL elections are conducted nationwide at
election time - except of the state of New Hampshire.

If this policy is followed on Saturday in the Iowa Straw Poll - this is
proof positive of the Iowa GOP leadership's utter bad will and intent to
defraud Ron Paul if necessary.

Having witnessed Ron Paul crushing landslide of all the other GOP candidates
on the ABC website after Sunday's nationally televised debate - the powers
that be are plenty worried. Ron Paul got rougly 30,000 of the 50,000 votes -
55% -- and the closest was Romney - who got only 3,600, or 6% of the online
poll vote!!

Is the patriotic, constitutional avalanche going to engulf them, the New
World Order toadies, and their Masters in NYC and DC? Well, not if they can
hide the ballots from us as if we were children - and tell us what their
pre-programmed computers say the "result is !!!!

Can you imagine? They think we're so stupid that we don't realize that the
computers can be programmed in advance to ignore what's on the ballots, and
to tabulate the number of ballots fed into the "black box" in the Diebold
machine - and then divide the candidates' votes by pre-programmed

Count the ballots in the open! WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE? Why do you people
holding offices of influence always since 1988 INSIST that the ballots
disappear forever - without being counted ???

One astute observer made this observation. Originally, the GOP was telling
callers and people, including this astute observer I'm referring to, -- that
there would be 25,000 voters this Saturday.

Then Romney, perhaps fearing the Paul avalanche, stated that he would not be
trying as hard, and would pay for less buses, etc. (Even so, NBC's Gloria
Borger said on the weekend Christ Matthews Show that Romney is spending so
much money that it will be a real blow to his campaign if he doesn't come in

After Romney's quizzical announcement - the Iowa GOP then had a press
conference and said they NOW expect 50,000 voters !!! Really? With Romney
making LESS of an effort? Tell us about this.

Our astute observer suggested to me: now that they know the Vote in Sunshine
Poll is going on to check the Diebold machines - they may be planning not to
suppress Paul's vote - but to boost Romney's. Are there going to be ballots
planted in the black box in each Diebold computer before the voting starts?
Will the Iowa GOP let us inspect the inside of each Diebold machine before
the voting starts? Is there a hidden compartment? Or are the computers just
programmed to make a fraudulent result ?????? --- and that's why the GOP is
announcing that there will NOT BE ANY hand count!

Let' pause here to remember the quote attributed to Communist Tyrant Joseph
Stalin: "Those who CAST the votes decide nothing. Those who COUNT the votes
decide everything."

Is that why you are taking and keeping all the ballots away from the people,
the candidates, the press, leaders of the Iowa GOP?????? Inquiring minds
want to know!

This is why people from all over the United States are coming to Iowa. We
need 200 volunteers to wear yellow "Vote in Sunshine" t-shirts and take the
"citizens' exit poll" verification ballots from those who have already voted
in the official Diebold election - AND WHO ALSO WANT TO MAKE SURE THEIR VOTE

We need YOU! Our organizational meeting for already committed volunteers -
and those who are going to be joining the effort that night - will be at 5
PM on Friday afternoon, August 10th, 2007 - at the Holiday Inn, Conference
Center, Charolais Room, 2609 Elwood Drive, Ames, IA 50010. (This Holiday Inn
is about one mile south of the Straw Poll location on Iowa State

Join the Meetup group at

ALSO, we still need about $1500 to $2000 to meet all the MINIMAL basic
expenses to make the alternative "citizens exit poll" happen. $2991 has been
collected as of this writing - and we have found some expenses that push the
need up to $5000 for just the basics - that means about $2000 is still
needed. You can help by going to - hitting send money - and
sending money to - which is the paypal address to the "Operation
Ames Honest Election 2007" effort.

So now, if you've grasped all of the above, you see the crass, criminal,
vile attitudes and instincts of the national GOP leaders (Dems, too, even
worse, if that be possible) - and the leaders of the Iowa GOP are going
along? For what? Is career more important than country and family and Faith?

The people of Iowa are great - the Iowa GOP leaders are disgracing them.

Last night, I sent to the Iowa GOP chairman, Mr. Ray Hoffman, a letter from
Citizens for a Fair Vote Count - a letter with potential legal implications,
holding up before the Iowa State GOP leadership two choices, two paths:

1. Scrap the discredited Diebold Computers, use the same paper ballots they
were going to use, put the ballots in easily obtainable clear plastic boxes
in public view all day, and have designated HUMAN BEINGS count them at a
cafeteria table at each of the voting stations at the end of the voting
period - with representatives from all campaigns, and citizens, watching and
hearing as the votes are scrutinized and called out. This path leads to the
Iowa GOP leadership being heroes to the whole nation and the whole world -
finally SOMEONE in a leadership position would have stood up to the
Rothschild/Rockefeller New World Order and its Computer Vote fraud
Syndicate, thus leading the way to take back our destiny as a nation.

2. The second path: use the discredited and disgraced Diebold computers to
"count" the Straw Poll vote. This path leads to winning the scorn of every
thinking person at the Iowa Straw Poll, in the state of Iowa - and in the
nation - as word spreads like wildfire across the nation. This path will
continue to build a righteous anger in normal Americans. And it might lead
to a "nasty" lawsuit with Mr. Ray Hoffman and all the other Iowa GOP leaders
- and the owners of Diebold in video-taped deposition.

If this becomes necessary, Mr. Hoffman, the Iowa State GOP central committee
members, and the Diebold officials such as Mr. Urosevich - will be filmed in
deposition, will go up on the internet and onto DVD for public viewing. --
In other words, via the deposition - they will be coming to your living room
TV or your home computer - and, at that point, boy will they want to be
anywhere else!

WHAT happens at the Ames, Iowa Straw Poll - is a microcosm of what happens
to 49 states at every primary and general election - since 1988! Do you see
how earth-shattering this is? This can be a turning point back to honest,
verifiable voting in the USA!

If we are going to elect a GOOD and INDEPENDENT man as President - and good
and honest people as Congressmen - then we have to draw the line somewhere!

Let us draw it at Ames this Saturday - a the Iowa Straw Poll 2007.

Everyone into the battle.
