This report summarizes the results of our review of the GEMS election management system, which counts approximately 25 percent of all votes in the United States. The results of this study demonstrate that a fractional vote feature is embedded in each GEMS application which can be used to invisibly, yet radically, alter election outcomes by pre-setting desired vote percentages to redistribute votes. This tampering is not visible to election observers, even if they are standing in the room and watching the computer. Use of the decimalized vote feature is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures, and can be applied across large jurisdictions in less than 60 seconds.
One of the reasons America’s “wars” last so long is the absence of bodies.
The military does not make available photographs of bullet-ridden, blown-to-shit or otherwise combat mangled soldiers to journalists. In a treasonous conspiracy, the vast majority of daily newspapers tacitly allow the US Government to get away with this, failing to publish any photos of dead military personnel.
The reason for this should be patently obvious: it decreases civilian morale. Which is another way of saying normal human beings are disgusted, repulsed and downright scared of the actual cost of sending their children to corporate America’s everlasting wars; out of sight, out of mind.
Daily images of exploded humans, point-blank executions, endless child endangerment, perpetual rape, burning monks and other atrocities went a long way to changing US public opinion about Viet Nam and shortened the conflict significantly.
Likewise were the coroner’s photos of the bodies of the Sandy Hook massacre, as well as any of the other mass murders in recent memory, released to the public, we believe the public would force Congress to quit sucking the fuckin’ NRA’s dick and actually establish sensible gun regulations.
To that end WNBTv hereby call on Anonymous to find and publicly post as many photos of the fatalities of America’s mass murders as possible, with the aim of mobilizing public opinion against the fuckin’ NRA and their lackeys in Congress such that, at a bare minimum, Congress outlaws all automatic and semi-automatic weapons in this country, to include the massive ammunition clips that go with them.
We can not think of any more pro-American activity for Anonymous to engage at this point in time.

You may have heard that last night Bernie conceded the Democratic primary without either a.) conceding, or b.) endorsing Hillary?
You would be correct; you can find his complete speech here.
The Onion nails the ReThug’s attitudes toward guns and gun massacres.
Omar Mateen was in the employ of security firm G4S.
G4S claims expertise in vetting and screening employees: “A robust employee screening programme helps organisations minimise the risk of making inappropriate recruitment decisions,” G4S tells potential customers. “We have a wealth of experience in developing and implementing background checks and security clearance for companies in the private and public sector.”
But time and again racist, misogynist and otherwise dangerous people have slipped through the company’s own screening process and been given power over vulnerable people. Repeatedly the company’s readiness to act in response to warnings has been found wanting.
Shades of Blackwater…er, we mean Academi.
Taibbi on how the Dems will take all the wrong lessons from Bernie’s run:
…This was no ordinary primary race, not a contest between warring factions within the party establishment, á la Obama-Clinton in ’08 or even Gore-Bradley in ’00. This was a barely quelled revolt that ought to have sent shock waves up and down the party, especially since the Vote of No Confidence overwhelmingly came from the next generation of voters. Yet editorialists mostly drew the opposite conclusion….
Politicians are so used to viewing the electorate as a giant thing to be manipulated that no matter what happens at the ballot, they usually can only focus on the Washington-based characters they perceive to be pulling the strings. Through this lens, the uprising among Democratic voters this year wasn’t an organic expression of mass disgust, but wholly the fault of Bernie Sanders, who within the Beltway is viewed as an oddball amateur and radical who jumped the line. Nobody saw his campaign as an honest effort to restore power to voters, because nobody in the capital even knows what that is. In the rules of palace intrigue, Sanders only made sense as a kind of self-centered huckster who made a failed play for power. And the narrative will be that with him out of the picture, the crisis is over. No person, no problem.”
Part of the reason I’ve never been a Hillary supporter is she’s just more of the same: a backer of American hegemony that’s been proven to not only be despised by the rest of the world, but a policy that actively creates the “terrorists” that plague our country.
It’s not that she just “doesn’t get it”, it’s that she’s an integral part of the corporate hegemony driving US policies.
