Forum Post: Election Stealing 101 Is the 2016 Election Already Being Stripped and Flipped?

Disturbing signs of the time-tested “Strip and Flip” strategy for stealing elections have already surfaced in 2016. Will they ultimately decide the outcome, as they have in too many recent elections?

The core approach is to STRIP citizens of their voting rights, then FLIP the electronic vote count if that’s not enough to guarantee a win for the corporate 1%. (Listen to a one-hour discussion with us, Brent Blackwelder, and Randy Hayes.)

Historically, “stripping” has been based on race. It’s rooted in the divide-and-conquer strategies of slavery and Jim Crow segregation. Today it centers on racist demands for photo ID and other scams designed to prevent blacks, Hispanics, the young, and the poor from voting.

“Flipping” is related to electronic voting machines, on which the vast majority of Americans will vote this fall. Nearly all these machines were bought with money from the 2002 Help America Vote Act, which came after the theft of the 2000 presidential election. Virtually all these machines are 10 years old or more, and can easily be hacked. Swing states Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Arizona, among others, have GOP governors and, except for Florida, secretaries of state who can easily flip the vote counts, once they are cast, without accountability or detection. Also, private partisan voting machine companies have unlimited access to the electronic poll books, voting machines, and central tabulators.

.....A recent study by Harvard and the University of Sydney, Australia, found that the United States had the “worst elections of any long-established democracy.” The U.S. ranked 47th out of the 47 long-term democratic nations.

Something serious must be done. Without radical action, these carefully engineered precinct eliminations, ballot and machine shortages, mass disenfranchisements, and too much more will not only determine who wins the presidency this fall, but also who controls the Congress, numerous governorships, and state legislatures and the whole gamut of elective offices around the country.

In the long run, only universal automatic voter registration, a four-day national holiday for voting, universal hand-counted paper ballots and other reforms will guarantee us a fair and reliable vote count. Posted at www.freepress.org, we call it the “Ohio Plan.”

But none of that will be in place this fall. In our coming articles, and in two weeks with our PowerPoint compendium, The Strip and Flip Selection of 2016, we will discuss what we can do in the interim.

What can be done about this problem?

''Every election victory Hillary Clinton has received has been shrouded in falsehoods, mass disenfranchisement, election crimes, and/or fraud. Surrounding all of this, and backed up by videos taken by voters and undercover observers is an apparent scheme to steal an election that she may have lost in most or all states in which she has claimed victory.

''In most games when a player is caught cheating, he forfeits. When the bottom 99% commit crimes, they are usually arrested and often go to jail or prison. However, in state after state, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been caught cheating, committing fraud and /or openly breaking the law with no consequence, no arrest, no loss of her votes and no remedies available to the voters. Why are the Clintons allowed to play outside rules not the rest of society has to follow?''

Hillary Trolls on the forum?! These days; none!! The DNC/Likud faction were seen off a while ago & now none are explicit or ardent Hitlary Rotten Clinton or Billy Bend-End fans!!! Now in the scheme of things - all here are radicals for The 99% in their own way. Bernie would be PotUS in November IF only he could overcome The Corporate DNC/Billary Machine. Now, thanx to them Herr tRUMP has more than a shot ..

On that note - there are movements appearing - here is just one:

Much of the calls and separate movements for change were inspired by the national Occupy Wall Street movement.

It take an awake public. Right now we are too comfortable, with almost every headache we encounter having a government solution. No need for us to get together to try to figure things out.

When was the last time your community held a big event to discuss the state of the local hospital and the costs its incurring? Most likely never.

All the power has been centralized. Its robbing us of our community, our creativity and our humanity.

I personally dont see this trend reversing on its own, nor do I think the people even want it to (there would be some pain to go through, and we love to kick that can as much as possible).

I can I see what you are saying about human nature, wanting to kick the can, not being interested naturally in minute details of the running a of complex human systems, including fixing systems, but allowing the experts to run things until they are smAked with a problem that affects them and they see as fundamentally bad to their own well being, find it easy to look the other way, deal with it later, or let someone else deal with it.

Recently here, the community did come together to slow/stop a huge methanol plant from being constructed on The Bay. Some people are starting to connect dots and we the larger picture, and how it impacts them after all.

That is good to hear for sure.

In 2013 the Supreme Court effectively gutted many of the protections inherent in the 1965 Voting Rights Act. https://act.moveon.org/go/2612?t=2&akid=163793.23748677.GodWSO
