Fair and Balanced Questions: What is truly going on in America, "voter fraud" by individual Democratic voters ...or systematic rigging of elections by hacking election computers? And supposing that the election computers ARE being hacked. Who is doing that, George Soros or Karl Rove?

As a start toward getting the truth, let's watch Jon Stewart's recent summation of Glenn Beck's amusingly illustrated case against Soros:

In the clip you just watched you repeatedly hear "voter fraud" mentioned on Fox News -- enough times to make anyone suspect that myriad Democratic voters commiting "voter fraud" are the reason why the Republicans didn't sweep both houses of congress last November 2nd.  Karl Rove's role in hacking election computers goes totally unmentioned.

Is this because Rove innocent? Well, watch this Keith Olbermann clip from a couple years ago:

O.K., so that was a couple years ago. Maybe the case against Rove has long since dried up?

Um, well, this account is pretty damned current:

CBS, CNN capture video of Ohio attorney subpoena served on Karl Rove
October 27th, 2010 3:43 pm ET

COLUMBUS, Ohio (CGE) - A federal subpoena, issued by Ohio attorney Cliff Arnebeck and sanctioned by the Office of Ohio Secretary of State, was served last Sunday in Washington to Karl Rove on his way to an appearance on the CBS news program Face the Nation.

CNN, CBS capture video of subpoena servicing to Karl Rove

The process service for the subpoena reported that CBS and CNN camera men "captured video" of the event.

In an article written by Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman and published at, the federal subpoena orders Rove to testify in deposition about his role in the alleged theft of the 2004 election, and to discuss his orchestration of tens of millions of corporate/billionaire dollars in this year's General Elections on November 2.
For the rest of the article above, go here:

It's not surprising that Glenn Beck missed this detail, because it certainly doesn't fit very well into his story.

But why didn't Olbermann pick up on it?

Oops, how obvious! Olbermann has recently been shown that he can be fired for the most trivial of "missteps" ...and any mention on the air of electronic election rigging in the USA by REPUBLICANS would surely be a "capital offense."

The "mainstream media" that most Americans watch is mostly owned by Rupert Murdoch, not George Soros.

Perhaps many of my readers have difficulty in believing that wholesale election rigging can be taking place in "the land of the free and the home of the brave." That would be thoroughly un-American. Surely something that would have been detected and decried by the House Un-American Activities Committee...

Seriously though, U.S. voting machines and central tabulators are decidedly vulnerable to hacking by insiders.

But how do we know that and why should we believe such an un-American activity is being carried out in America? Well, even Jon Stewart has figured this out:

But neither Jon Stewart nor Glenn Beck are computer experts. So let's hear from some true experts:

Perhaps you Fox News watchers are a bit suspicious that all those experts may have been "poor loser" Democrats. If so, then hear it from REPUBLICAN information-technology expert Stephen Spoonamore:

So, now maybe you are convinced that the means for wholesale election theft are soundly established, but is there any strong evidence of wholesale rigging of U.S. elections has actually taken place?

Yes, indeed there is!   For example, I highly recommend that you read "Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen?" by Steven F. Freeman & Joel Bleifuss. But if that is too much bother and/or you want to know about more recent elections than 2004, go here:

That leaves only the question of what George Soros has been up to recently.

Just what is Soros' role in U.S. politics? Is he really plotting the overthrow of the entire country like Glenn Beck says? Well, an article in today's Los Angeles Times spells out Soros' stated opinion on Obama's first two years in office.

The last three paragraphs of this LA Times article read like this:
Soros, who did not participate in the 2010 election ... [says] Obama needs to push back more against the right, particularly around the issue of tax cuts.

"I admire the president for his attempt to rise above partisan party politics," he said in a statement he sent to the Tribune Washington Bureau. "His policies have made the recession he inherited shorter and shallower than it would otherwise have been. But after two years of complete noncooperation and vicious distortion, the time for compromise has ended."

"Extending the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% will not create jobs, but it will preclude further job-creating fiscal measures, including support to states," he said. (blogger emphasis added)
Um, that doesn't sound much like a plot to take over the country to me.

Rather, it sounds a lot more like a plot for We The People to rein in the looting of our country by the richest 2% -- and implies that Soros is actually "calling in artillery on his own position" to SAVE the country!
