Bush's 'Guidelines' For
Postponing November Elections
By Michel Chossudovsky
GlobalResearch.ca
7-13-4

 

"... Credible reporting indicates that Al Qaeda is moving forward with its plans to carry out a large-scale attack in the United States in an effort to disrupt our democratic process...
 
"This is sobering information about those who wish to do us harm... But every day we strengthen the security of our nation." (DHS Secretary Tom Ridge, 8 July 2004)
 
 
Does this last announcement by Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge entail a code red emergency scenario of "closing down the country" (prior to the November elections) as conveyed by Secretary Ridge in a previous statement:
 
"If we go to [code] Red ... it basically shuts down the country," (22 December 2003, emphasis added)
 
Homeland Security and the White House no doubt have several "scenarios" in mind to "win" the presidential elections in November.
 
(See Steven Moore, http://globalresearch.ca/articles/MOO407A.html ).
 
Recent developments suggest that Homeland Security is indeed contemplating a code red alert.
 
(See http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO402A.html ).
 
At the same time, the Bush Administration is also maneuvering cautiously behind the scenes, with a view to embedding formal "guidelines" into federal election procedures, which would allow for the cancellation or postponement of an election in the event of a terror attack.
To reach their objective, the Bush Administration is using the jurisdiction of one of its bogus federal agencies, the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) , established in 2003 under the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) .
 
Concurrent with Homeland Security's statement regarding the possibility of a large scale "9/11 type attack", EAC director DeForest B. Soaries , a Bush appointee, has hinted to the need for:
 
"establishing guidelines for canceling or rescheduling elections if terrorists strike the United States again".
 
"Look at the possibilities. If the federal government were to cancel an election or suspend an election, it has tremendous political implications. If the federal government chose not to suspend an election it has political implications... Who makes the call, under what circumstances is the call made, what are the constitutional implications?... I think we have to err on the side of transparency to protect the voting rights of the country... I'm hopeful that there are some proposals already being floated. If there are,! we're not aware of them. If there are not, we will probably try to put one on the table ... The states control elections, but on the national scale where every state has its own election laws and its own election chief, who's in charge?". (quoted in AP, 8 July 2004, emphasis added)
 
What is important in this new initiative, is that if these so-called guidelines were to be adopted, the Administration would technically be able to postpone or cancel an election, "with the stroke of a pen", and without resorting to far-reaching emergency procedures and/or martial law.
 
A temporary postponement might be considered by Republican strategists as a (desperate) propaganda ploy, for swinging votes away from the Kerry-Edwards ticket. Whether these guidelines will be accepted prior to November by the Democrats is, at this stage doubtful.
 
The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is described as a "clearinghouse of voting information and procedures". The statements and news coverage seem to suggest that if guidelines on the postponement or cancellation of elections are to be formulated, they should emanate from the EAC, which has a (bipartisan) mandate under the US Congress to oversee federal voting systems, rather than the DHS.
 
But the EAC is an "informal arm" of the Department of Homeland Security. Both the DHS and the White House are indelibly behind the proposed "guidelines" initiative, calling the shots from behind the scenes.
 
EAC Director Reverand DeForest "Buster" Soaries, a former Baptist minister, is a handpicked appointee. He was New Jersey Secretary of State under Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, who is a political crony of Sec. Tom Ridge, going back to their days as GOP governors of the neighboring states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Todd Whitman was appointed by the Bush Admistration to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and has since then worked very closely with Tom Ridge in the domestic war on terror.
The press reports suggest that DeForest "Buster" Soaries took the initiative on his own accord, acting on behalf of a federal governmental body. He has even complained: "that he was rebuffed when he wrote to Ridge seeking to discuss election security, including how to handle rescheduling the election if it were to be disrupted by an attack." (Associated Press, 9 July 2004).
 
Secretary Tom Ridge has said that he is "against the guidelines." What he does not say is that various procedures have already been carefully worked out by Homeland Security analysts, who have simulated precise red code alert scenarios including situations, implying the cancellation or postponement of elections. (See http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO402A.html ).
 
Ridge says that "he doesn't agree with all of the conclusions in Soaries' letter, but the department is working on constitutional and security questions, and Soaries will be involved in the process." (AP, 9 July 2004 )
 
Homeland Security is intent on establishing entrenched procedures under the EAC. The "guidelines" to postpone or suspend the elections could then be presented as a means to "protecting democracy" in the case of a terror attack.
 
The setting of so-called "guidelines" at the level of an official body, the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), would establish a "trigger mechanism" under the jurisdiction of a federal commission.
 
A code red alert would contribute to activating the guidelines, although the latter could indeed be activated without resort to "the highest" terror alert level.
 
E-Democracy or Electoral Fraud?
 
The same Bush sponsored body, the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), which has hinted to the need for "guidelines" in the case of a terror attack, has also been pushing for the establishment in several states of the Diebold electronic voting system .
 
Diebold is a black box system which very conveniently does not leave a paper trail. In other words, it does not leave a paper record of the vote. In fact: "all three black box computer manufacturers are Republican-led corporations actively involved in Bush,s re-election campaign."
 
(Steve Moore, July 2004, http://globalresearch.ca/articles/MOO407A.html ).
 
In June 2004, Diebold Inc, which is backing the Bush campaign, congratulated EAC Chairman DeForest Soaries for assisting Diebold in marketing is E-election system:
 
We welcome the opportunity to provide input on these important issues and pledge our strong support to the EAC," said Mark G. Radke, director of marketing for Diebold Election Systems, Inc. 'This initiative by Chairman Soaries and the EAC will further increase voter confidence in the election process as election practices and procedures transition to more efficient, accurate technology," said Walden W. O'Dell, chairman and CEO of Diebold, Incorporated, the parent company of Diebold Election Systems."
 
(Diebold News Release, http://www.diebold.com/news/newsdisp.asp?id=3083 ).
 
Diebold's CEO Walden O'Dell confirmed in a subsequent interview that:
 
"he has been a top fund-raiser for the Republican president, but said he intends to lower his political profile and "try to be more sensitive" in light of the national criticism he has faced. ... Because the fund-raising revelations fell closely on the heels of security questions raised about Diebold's machines in a later-questioned Johns Hopkins University study, O'Dell's critics began to suggest that Diebold should not be allowed to be involved in elections. (The Plain Dealer, 16 September 2003),

The choir is singing....
 
In my essay SEVEN months ago, Jan 2004 I wrote
"Don't You Know What Freedom Is ?"
(http://www.rense.com/general48/sdr.htm)
 
I wrote the following. However, based on what I've learned since then, its more likely the attacks will NOT
come until the CHILDREN ARE BACK IN SCHOOL so they can seperate the children from the parents
using FEMA school lockdown rules, already now in effect:
 
"NO ELECTION IN NOVEMBER IS LIKELY AND WHY Several things are almost a certainty, unless people get really mad about all this and stop it: Here is what logic dictates will happen, based on the publicly admitted motivations of people in office now. There WILL be another attack this year, before November. More than likely in spring or summer because of military logistics."
 
And last month, I wrote in
"Facts Why Bush Will Remain President"
(http://www.rense.com/general54/facts.htm)
 
BUSH BACKUP PLAN
 
There is plenty of time, between now and November to perform another orchestrated attack on America. Just one more big event will cause the head shrub to declare martial law. When that happens, even if he's not president-elect he still doesn't need to step down and Congress can just go home or back to the golf course, because military law will rule the USA.

Hi,All,another article exposing the Bush&co.s Agenda re:"elections," or rather NO elections.This article is by Mike Ruppert,and I urge all to go to his website.The many truly honest investigative researchers,and journalists are hardly known to the majority,its sad considering so many have access to the internet,and the only outlet for real news,and independent publishing co.s,and newsletters,are the only way they can get the truth to the rest of us.With what we face,the main-stream media are just as culpable as the archtitechs of these atrocities,and may they who knowingly go along with this evil be damned.
To the main-steam media,and those whose responsibilty it is to protect us (and the rest of the world) from tyranny,You Are a Disgrace to this country,and your chosen,(or selected) proffesions,and I don't know how you can look at you're children or yourselves,knowing what most of you know!
I have no doubt these types read posts on boards like this,so that is why I'm speaking directly to them,as well as posting crucial information here.Please read this article,and visit Mike Rupperts website.I am going to start "harvesting"urls to post here that tell us the TRUTH!For me its been good-riddance to "main-stream"media,and their speading of NWO Agendas.

p.s.(I bet the only reason the "media"started to report anything on this and other crucial issues,is cause of the truly honest people who risk all to get the truth out!)

What had been merely a rumor has now become fact.
The Bush administration has asked for legislation enabling it to postpone the November election as a result of a terror attack. While worded very carefully to suggest that an attack must take place for such a move; I do not see either of the below stories unequivocally state that, if granted, these powers might not also permit elections to be “postponed” on merely a well-publicized threat. Don’t believe the press stories. Read the legislation when it is introduced to see what it says there. If that discretion is included then we are at the edge of an abyss more dangerous than anything we have ever faced.
These powers, if enacted, will go to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS would also be the entity to decide when, or if, postponed elections would be held.
Allowing suspension of the elections on just the threat of a terror attack would create a hole in the legislation big enough to drive an oil tanker, or an open dictatorship, through. Since the legislation has not been seen yet we do not know what it will say. Once introduced, the bill would then go into Senate and House Committees (Republican controlled) where the language could easily be modified to give discretionary power to the Administration. At that moment the Constitution would overtly cease to have any operational meaning at all. The separation of powers would vanish.
Judging from the news stories tonight we will probably see the legislation introduced fairly quickly. From the instant it appears, this legislation must be tracked daily, even hourly, at http://thomas.loc.gov.
Does any one of us doubt that if threatened or desperate, the administration would use those powers without hesitation?
I ask those who read this to stop for a moment and consider what it would mean for all of us on this side of the fence if the Bush administration both acquired and used the power to suspend the election -- with or without an attack. What restraints would be left to prevent some of our worst-case scenarios from coming true? Why even maintain the illusion of democracy? All vestiges of accountability will have been removed.
We should each evaluate our own situations accordingly. Hopefully most of us will see that we have no choice but to bond together more than ever before. To quote Ben Franklin: “We must all hang together or else we shall surely all hang separately.”
This is the moment at which it all becomes very, very real. Although there is strong Democratic Party opposition appearing with derisive statements from Rep. Jane Harman and Sen. Diane Feinstein, my initial assessment, after watching CNN, FOX and MS-NBC, is that the press is already “selling” us this legislation. Fortunately, early stories also report that the act would also require a constitutional amendment.
However, with this Supreme Court we can be assured of nothing. Yet, knowing this, we can be sure that there will be many chances to fight and beat this travesty. There will be many places at which our skills and resources can function to create and implement a coordinated response.
All the efforts put into 9/11 and into the anti-war movement will need to pale by comparison with the effort that must be put forth to prevent this legislation from passing. Every lesson learned about organizing; mobilizing; reporting; strategy; education; and influencing congress (if that’s possible), needs to be remembered and applied now. There will be many tests to come.
May whatever form of divinity each of us holds dear give us guidance, wisdom and strength as we consider this.
For almost three years FTW, along with many other brave souls, has been saying that 9/11 was just the beginning. Tonight it seems that the next stage – whatever that will turn out be – is knocking tonight at everyone’s door. Do not give up. Do not be afraid. If all this is true and comes to pass, then everything is as bad as we have been saying all this time. So we had that much of a head start, didn’t we?
We are not defenseless. The cause is not lost. There is always a sense of relief when a dreaded event finally arrives because – only in that moment – can anything be done about it.
I don’t usually quote Dianne Feinstein but she was right when she said that America holds elections in the middle of wars, earthquakes and disasters. No matter what, we must demand an election this November. Even the debates about which candidate is or isn’t better, or whether one will or won’t make a difference, are now moot.
Stop. Catch your breaths. Steel your hearts and minds in preparation. Soon we’re all going to find out what we’re made of. If we do not have an election this November then the world we have been fighting to change until tonight will become only a “pleasant” memory compared to the world that will follow.
Mike Ruppert
