Sorry for posting OT but I was unable to find a recent active thread that addresses election reform.
The "Yurica Report" has devised a program, which is both simple and inexpensive, to circumvent election fraud. Please consider checking out the link provided , in the event that it might work. If enough of us work toward this goal we may be able to make a real differece in the outcome of future elections, without having to wish, hope, or pray that Congress or the BA to do it for us.
Thank you all so much for the inspiration provided here. And yes, WP, although I missed the Blogathon, I will be making a donation to Brad for his valuable efforts as soon as I return from vacation. I will also be distributing articles from your "Whispering Campaign" from Northern Michigan to deep in the heart of Texas and back.

Brad has apparently been tied up, and gagged so he can't speak.
Now I'm convinced more than ever that he and Dick Cheney are one and the same person.

[a]. MBeau's comment got caught in a trap and I reposted it here under her name. I quoted it verbatim and moved it here from another thread, and that was the cause of the OT alert in the Open Thread. Not MBeau's fault and I apologize again for the trap. Some days we need to fly around with the shields up. Ahem.
[b]. what do you think this might mean?
POWER: Today we were running an exercise for a company - bear in mind now that I'm in the private sector - and we sat everybody down in the city - 1000 people involved in the whole organization - with the crisis team. And the most peculiar thing was it was we based on a scenario of simultaneous attacks on a underground and mainline station. So we had to suddenly switch an exercise from fictional to real. And one of the first things is, get that bureau number, when you have a list of people missing, tell them. And it took a long time -
INTERVIEWER: Just to get this right, you were actually working today on an exercise that envisioned virtually this scenario?
POWER: Almost precisely.
We blogged quite a bit about this and related matters on Saturday and you can read a very interesting thread here: It's Just Too Convenient
[a] that is correct
[b] no they are not!

Winter Patriot #6- These London exercises,occuring at the exact time of the attacks, is the exact same "MODUS OPERANDI" as the attacks of 9/11, where " hijacking drills" were occurring at the exact same time as the "real hijackings". This fact is just TOO coincidental for me. What are the chances of this happening naturally?? A thousand to one?? A million to one?? You are right WP, this smells really fishy!!

How many times can you do things that are a million to one and get by with telling people it's "just coincidence?" Has any other political party in power EVER had that kind of record before?
NOW --- let me put on my Marketing Hat:
Please everybody - remember that Brad is bringing us important news here. He is one of our precious and rare investigative journalists. We need him - this blog - and the radio show --- we need these things desperately. If we don't support Brad financially we might lose this site and the Brad Show. He is just 1 dedicated person who isn't funded in any other way.
PLEASE --- this is a heartfelt plea for us all to take seriously the reason we are being asked to donate. It doesn't have to be much.
If you eat out, give what it would take for a meal and then stay home, listen to an archived BradShow and eat a bowl of soup or a toasted cheese sandwich, a salad or some fruit.
Try to think about it in proper perspective. If we lose this site and the radio show we will certainly be sore losers.
Besides, Brad is probably uncomfortable with that gag in his mouth
Thanks for listening to me. Love all of you! /kira

It appears to me that the article I posted here some time back was accurate.
It had to do with the theory that the Plame investigation was turning into sort of a perjury investigation in conjunction with the CIA agent outing investigation.
Rove has testified to effectively the opposite of what his lawyer has now said in public (he has in fact told a reporter that Wilson's wife was CIA but told congress another story under oath).
BTW Rove's lawyer's last big client got 660 years in prison and paid in gold bullion.

'The London Coincidence????'
As pointed out, that coincidence is like the 911---with a major difference. The diffeence being that the London bombings have an "invetigation" almost immediately. How novel! A crime scene investigation!
And it appears that the investigators are looking at "video" material from the scenes. How novel!
Looking at video material which may be revealing.
Can we borrow Scotland Yard and go back to investigating crime scenes of 911?
A curious question of 'what hit the Pentagon?' could be uncovered and answered by looking at 'videos'.
But if the videos show that flight 7, a Boing 757 did not crash the Pentagon, it would open up another question----like 'what happened to flight 7?'

I second Kira #8! DIG DEEP!!!
We went on a minor spree last night. But don't blame me if we passed on the fractals...
We've got to keep this blog going and ourselves in touch with each other. And the BradShow...now what would the weekends be without it?

Spine-tingling post at Cunningrealist about the Federal Reserve
and the London bombing:
Apparently the fed injects liquidity to support the stock market sometimes, and has done so four times since the TechWreck of 2000:
1. Immediately after 9/11.
2. During the second half of 2002 after widespread
accounting scandals and the meltdown in the corporate bond
3. Just before the 2004 election
4. May and June of 2005.
Now Cunningrealist sees a major injection that occured 48
hours before the London bombing.

Hereís what we did last week on our vacation to our Nationís Capital: started a chain tattoo.
(1) Get a permanent Sharpie Marker
(2) Give yourself (have a friend create) an ďImpeach BushĒ tattoo (be creative; today I had a heart with a flag ín arrow motif)
(3) Give the Sharpie to your friend (label Sharpie ďImpeach Bush chain-tattoo-toolĒ; offer to do the tattoo
(4) Pass it on
(5) N.B. People read stuff written on other peopleís skin

First it was assumed the London bombings were the work of al Qaeda. In fact, there were several claims from al Qaeda to that effect.
Now Scotland Yard says it was the work of four people, all from England. Supposedly there's a photo of four men getting off a train in London at 6:30 a.m. that morning, and these are said to be the guys. They're sure one of the died, but aren't sure about the other three.
Does this sound fishy to anyone else out there? Who took a photo of four men at a train station at 6:30 in the morning? Why do such a thing, unless there was reason to suspect them of planning something? And in that case, shouldn't the person with the camera call the cops? How did this random photo, taken in London, immediately get connected to a terrorist plot based in Northern England?
It smells like a set-up deal to me. Maybe I'm paranoid, but these four guys might just be pigeons.
