Corrupt Media Sweeps Election Fraud Under the Rug

Image
Mark Greene The corporate news media, and their blogosphere sycophants, which didn't say a peep about the 2004 Washington 9th District Republican congressional primary incongruities (i.e., theft), and little if anything about the strange electronic occurences in that primary, generally, are trying to sweep under the rug all indications of election fraud in the United States by keeping silent, and saying and writing virtually nothing about it.  It will be up to campaigns like that of Mark Greene's (for King Co. Director of Elections) to remind the people that fraud, incompetence and shady machinery are wrecking the last vestiges of democracy in the United States and making their "votes" nothing more than a charade to keep the status quo in power.  The news media, rather than being the gatekeepers of democracy like they are suppose to be, are instead silent partners of the sleazy architects of corruption and fraud in not only the voting systems of America, but in the ov…

Blog News XLIV

As the largely unreported story of the news of the incongruous 9th District Republican Primary for U.S. Representative in 2004 is beginning to get out, the Seattle PI, now a mere website rather than a newspaper, has taken to censoring comments as "Commons" trys to get this story out in as many venues as possible.  So what does the PI know about this long ago primary that news about it today seemingly embarrasses them?  For a review of the moribund election scandal in "Commoner," please, see the following articles:

The Seattle Times' Conundrum

Referring to a long ago 2004 Republican primary for U.S. Representative in the 9th Congressional District of Washington, among others, election activist Bev Harris was busily alarming people, in the late summer or autumn of 2004, that there was something wrong: the audit logs for the election in King County were missing for a certain period of time, the wee hours of the night, after the polls closed that September 14th.  Mark Greene and Paul Lord were practically tied in the vote count, with Mark leading in the population-heavy portion of the 9th District, King County, and in Thurston County (Lord was leading in Pierce County).  Audit logs may be able to detect vote tampering, which is why anyone who was tampering with the vote count would not want certain logs around, and certain logs weren't around by time sunrise came around on September 15, 2004. 

After some examination, Bev Harris was pointing this out to anyone who was interested, but her operation is small and, to be hones…

Ha Ha Ha, Break the Law, Who Cares?

We're not talking about jaywalking, we're talking about the systematic subverting of the United States Constitution by the main U.S. intelligence agencies and proxies, who even after being slapped on the wrist by the courts, continue to engage in warrantless spying activities against American citizens, particularly critics of the government, such as our party. Also, even after the C.I.A. was effectively implicated in torture (including through photographs/videos that they themselves destroyed) against people around the world, some not guilty of anything except being in the "wrong" place at the "wrong" time, as if that should matter, the nation's chief law enforcement official, Attorney General Eric Holder, is looking the other way from torturers and assorted war criminals, generally, and instead threatening whistleblowers who have uncovered a lot of the crimes, if not all of them.  Holder is a clown, put in his position to be a clown, but he's no or…

Dirty Tricks, Immorality and Hypocritic Bluster

The release of information in government documents through various sources, including the New York Times, continues to show that the Obama admin. is not any more moral than his predecessors in the last half century.  In other words, this administration's talk about "change" was snake oil for the masses, intended primarily to get the "constitutional scholar" elected, and the change that has been enacted so far appears to be an effort to make Bush II look, believe it or not, less authoritarian than the present administration.  Reportedly, the Secretary of State in the present administration, Hillary Clinton, is going around telling people to collect (actually, steal) DNA and private documents of U.N. officials, which would appear to be an effort to compromise or pressure them through frame-ups, blackmail, extortion, bribery or other immoral deeds.  Of course, there are the usual falsifications and distortions of facts to make other countries look bad, protection…

Under the Radar

While campaigning for King Co. Director of Elections, Mark Greene gets a few condescending smirks and smiles, and of course the corporate mainstream news media doesn't even notice, but Mark is quietly working the rounds of East King County, speaking about election administration reform and integrity, and the current mismanagement at King Co. Elections, as well as meeting thousands of people, and building support for his campaign.  Mark practically likes being ignored by the corporatist-run media; better for his campaign to concentrate on the grassroots effort than trying to impress the establishment that is going to endorse the Logan-Huff regime next year, anyway.  Next year, Mark will expand his campaign to the north, west and south, and of course to the City of Seattle where the crescendo building to an upset victory in 2011 will pave the way for an election department where reform, integrity and professionalism are first and foremost.

Please, contribute to Mark's simultaneou…

Blog News XL

Earlier this week we found out that the September 14, 2004 primary ballots in King and Thurston counties were destroyed some years ago, which probably means the Pierce County ballots met the same fate.  Therefore, the hard facts of this scandal will be practically impossible to uncover.  We have noted however, with documentation, that some of the recent viewings of our blog, since we started writing on September 20, 2010 about the "other curious election of '04," have come from the county government of Los Angeles (3 different viewings from there in the last 32 days or so); it's no coincidence that Dean Logan works for that particular county government.

The write-in campaign for Mark Greene for State Representative in District 41, Position 2, is going strong; ballots must be postmarked by November 2nd.

Mark Hopeful That F.B.I. Will Pursue Election Criminals

True to his word, regarding the '04 primary election scandal, Mark Greene has made the first contacts to the Justice Department, and Mark is hopeful that the Seattle U.S. Attorney's Office and the F.B.I. will think that this is a good enough case to pursue the criminals who electronically manipulated the 14th of September, 2004 primary election in the State of Washington.  Mark may hear something from these offices as early as Thursday, Oct. 14. The first order of business in this possible investigation may and probably should be the securing and counting of the '04 ballots if, in fact, the ballots still survive (presently, we are not sure if they have survived or how long old ballots have to be kept by Washington elections officials).  If the ballots have not survived, this case will have very weak legs.  Once an investigation has started, the elections officials in King, Pierce and Thurston counties, as well as the Secretary of State's office in Olympia, if they are …

Stolen Election Paperwork Underway

Party of Commons chairman, Mark Greene, who apparently had the '04 G.O.P. 9th Congressional District primary stolen from him, is initiating Freedom of Information requests, today (to examine old ballots).  Contacts with the U.S. Justice Department, making a request for an investigation, are expected to be made very soon as well.  Mark will make the stolen '04 primary one of the important issues of his campaign for King Co. Director of Elections next year, thus showing the incompetence and dysfunction in the county elections department, and that Dean Logan's minions, despite that Logan himself has left and is presently ensconced in another state, are still causing havoc in elections.  Please, also read the two previous posts that are related to this one, among others: "The Tottering Logan-Huff Regime" and "Election Night: September 14, 2004."  Thanks!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO CHECK THE BALLOTS FROM 9/14/04 PRIMARY ONCE THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST IS AP…

The Tottering Logan-Huff Regime

If only Mark Greene, candidate for the U.S. House in 2004, had suspected that the 9th Congressional District primary of September 14, 2004 was fraudulent, he definitely would not have let it pass without a strong protest and court challenges, but he didn't suspect or know anything about the electronic programming manipulations.  Only Dean Logan & his minions, and the corporate media establishment knew on one side, and a few dedicated election specialists, like Bev Harris, on the other side, but Harris and her acolytes received practically no media attention that September, if any at all, and her warnings about the election went completely unnoticed by Mark.  Six years later, the 41st Legislative District petition controversy has brought the 2004 primary to light, and soon there will be Freedom of Information requests for examination of ballots, and requests to the U.S. Justice Department/F.B.I. for an investigation.  If the Logan-Huff regime falls, through the 2011 election fo…

Election Night: September 14, 2004

In a scheme to make sure that an anti-interventionist candidate, similar to Rep. Ron Paul in foreign policy, did not make the November general election ballot, it is apparent that the U.S. Congressional primary election of six years ago was stolen from Mark Greene, candidate for the G.O.P. nomination that year in the 9th Congressional District, competing against Paul Lord, thereby criminal fraud taking place in that election (Mark is presently with the Party of Commons, a practical independent).  A 3-hour gap in the vote tabulation audit logs appeared at a critical time, not long after the closing of the polls.  This gap is evidenced by a report from elections specialist, Bev Harris.  Dean Logan, the former King County elections director, denied that there were any significant problems with the election despite ample evidence to the contrary.  Logan has since been known to be a corrupt, dishonest partisan, and not qualified to be dogcatcher let alone in charge of any elections depart…

Mark Will Request an Investigation into '04 Primary

For all these years, until the 41st District petition controversy of this year brought forth a closer look into the overall operations of the Logan-Huff regime at the King County Department of Elections, Mark Greene never suspected vote fraud in the September 14th, 2004 primary relating to the election for U.S. Congress in the 9th Congressional District.  Then we saw an old report by election reform activist, Bev Harris, recently, and suddenly the petition controversy wasn't the only significant matter involving Mark and King Co. Elections.  It's beginning to look more and more like Mark Greene actually won the 9th Congressional District G.O.P. primary in 2004, and that Dean Logan and his minions could not be bothered to look into egregious incongruities and possible fraud regarding the vote count in the 9th District.  We now think that Mark did win, which means that Mark Greene was the victim of fraud, and that he won 3 straight major party primaries for U.S. Congress early i…

The Other Curious Election of '04

The alledged election fraud involving the vote count in Ohio during the Kerry and Bush presidential contest, and the shenanigans inside the King County (Washington) Elections Department during the Rossi and Gregoire gubernatorial contest, both in the year 2004, are well known, but virtually nothing is known about the congressional primary election in the 9th District of Washington that year.  Mark Greene had a lead over Paul Lord in two of the three counties on election night, including the overwhelmingly largest population county for the district (King), in the G.O.P. primary, and the margin of difference between the two candidates was a percentage point or less, but Mark curiously ended up losing by a few percentage points after some strange electronic programming occurences in King County for that primary.  It seems like Dean Logan's office, which includes his holdovers that are still working for King Co. Elections (Logan, himself, is now doing his "work" in the City …

Clarification

Regarding recent posts in "Commoner" which says that there are one million spies in the federal government, this does not mean that all the people with top secret security clearances, referred to in the recent Washington Post report by Dana Priest and William Arkin, are federal employees. Most of these people work for companies that contract with the federal government or are independently contractors themselves, also working for the government.  Given the present political climate in America, some astute observers of our police state expect this number to increase dramatically as time goes by; very sad.

It's In the Washington Post, For Crying Out Loud

Every so often there are hints from people who think that the writing in "Commoner" is a little over the top, like the recent referral to "1 million spies" in the federal government.  Do people pay attention to the news anymore?  The Washington Post is a reputable newspaper that broke the Watergate scandal story in the early 1970's.  They are the ones that recently reported through reporters, Dana Priest and William Arkin, about the big spy network in the federal government (just search "Washington Post," "Dana Priest," and "spies" on Google).  Ok, so "Commoner" rounded up the number of more than three quarters of a million people with top secret security clearances, to one million people, but not even the Post, in all likelihood, knows the exact number.  It's a lot of spies.  Of course, anytime that somebody says that Uncle Sam is doing something outrageous, some people simply do not want to believe that the governme…

Democracy at Bay

Demagogues are afoot: in the government, with their one million spies; on television and radio, with media clowns spewing propaganda relentlessly, especially on FOX follies; and in certain quarters of the antidemocracy crowd, where the long tradition of religious liberty that America was practically founded on would be forsaken if they gained political power.

The federal demagogues, through their unconstitutional powers, namely the so-called Patriot Act, with their one million spies, based on fear and tyranny, are spying on virtually all dissenters and political activists, which pretty much throws out the window the notion of the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave."

Political demagogues, eager to polarize the general public in order to win elections, would throw out one of the finest sections of the U.S. Constitution, the 14th Amendment, which theoretically guarantees equality of law and citizenship rights.

More than ever, fascist ideologues and demagogues are tryin…

Mark to Run for King Co. Director of Elections

Mark Greene has decided to run for King Co. Director of Elections, taking on the task of trying to bring independent, competent, efficient and friendly management to an unruly county department.  If elected, King Co. residents can rest assured that Mark will not jump through the King Co. Executive's or the King Co. Council's hoops, but will abide by the constitutions of the U.S. and the State of Washington, realizing that the former supersedes the latter if a conflict arises, and both supersede the actions of corrupt county politics should such prove to be unconstitutional or otherwise unlawful.

Corporate Machine Pronounces Election Over

The Seattle Times recently endorsed the incumbent politician, of course, for state representative in the 41st District Primary to take place next month and practically declared the election over.  They mentioned the candidates on the ballot, but failed to mention Mark Greene's (Party of Commons chairman's) write-in campaign, which is the usual chicanery by the corporate mainstream news media.  Mark was not placed on the ballot due to dubious King County Elections' practices regarding Mark's petition for representative, and thereby Mark was forced to conduct a write-in campaign (see last month's updated essay in "Coliseum" about the elections department  http://commonseum.blogspot.com/).  Naturally, this mixture of corporatism and county corruption will be combined again next year when the Times makes their pro forma endorsement of Sherril Huff for re-election as Director of Elections.

Blog News XXXV

The write-in phase for the Mark Greene for Representative campaign (District 41, Washington) started last week and will be in full swing beginning on Tuesday, July 6.  The write-in campaign is for the August 17th primary.  By their recent actions and statements, in which they have continually stopped and criticized unemployment compensation insurance programs, Republican politicians have declared unemployed Americans as persona non grata.  This is also a signal from the Republicans that those employed had better not lose their jobs, because they won't get any support from them should that occur.

That type of antipathy towards workers is one of the reasons why voters need to bring in third party candidates into the government.  Among the Party of Commons ideas for new jobs in Washington are a big public works project, with funding derived from ending tax shelters and breaks for big business, and a renewable and sustainable energy project that would start new programs and jobs to h…

Candidate Fees & Petition Requirements

High filing fees or petition requirements for candidates running for office are something that people who really believe in democracy should be concerned about, because excessive filing fees and signature requirements put certain offices out of reach for many citizens, and leaves the government the exclusive property of corporatists and their lobbyists, and the rich in general. In a democracy, or a republic if you will, every citizen should have a plausible opportunity to run for office, and the opportunity to run for office should not be put out of reach by the rich and elitists in government, or the establishment if you will, that are making rules that have the effect of forbidding low-income, unemployed and poor people to run for office. This is why Mark is sponsoring Initiative to the People 1075 this year and sponsored Initiative to the Legislature 432 last year. Moreover, there should be public financing of county, state and federal campaigns, and local jurisdictions with fairly…

The Names of "Commons"

Today, The Party of Commons (Party of Commons TM), whose motto is progress, tradition and ecology, added a new trademarked name for our party, "Good Orthodox Party of Commons" or "G.O.P.C." or "G.O.P.C.-Commons."  We also go by the names of "Commons" or "Commons Party," the latter is also trademarked.  Part of this was to get around the awkward listing of the party name on the ballot with the word "party" listed twice.  This is imposed by election officials that insist that "Party" follows whatever party a candidate represents (prefers) on his papers.  Therefore, whether we list "Party of Commons" or one of our other names will depend on whether the election officials change the rules about listing a party name, or perhaps depend on whatever name we happen to be using at the time.

Hello to faithful readers and supporters of the Party of Commons.  As Mark's campaign for state representative is turning into a crucial phase, as he must get the word out about the campaign in the district, get contributions to ensure a healthy campaign, and get on the ballot, the Party of Commons is allocating more of our time to these efforts than to blogging, but keep checking since we may be back to our usual blogging pace in a matter of time.  In the meantime, we are using Twitter more than we used to, and we will try to post something daily on Twitter as well as keep our supporters up-to-date with our blogs through that source.

More people everyday in the 41st District are learning about the Party of Commons and becoming quite interested in our little party since frustration with the two corporate major parties is at an all-time high.  If ever there was a year for a third party to be successful in elections, this is it.  Fortu…

Mark Awaiting Labor Board Endorsement Decision

On April 14th, state representative candidate for the 41st District, Mark Greene, gave a strong presentation to the Washington State Labor Council, as he told them he would work hard for labor interests if elected.  Mark was interviewed for about 30 minutes as he answered the various questions concerning labor. Mark vigorously supported the unemployment insurance system and the workers' rights to these benefits when needed, among his answers to other questions from the interviewing group. He also said that among the fixes needed for the economy was getting rid of the trade globalization pacts (such as WTO and NAFTA).  The council will be making their decision sometime next month.

An Unconstitutional Bill

Odious politicians, John McCain of Arizona and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, have introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate called the Enemy Belligerent, Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, which would basically give military commanders and the president authority to arrest American citizens or others for vague reasons, which inevitably would include exercising First Amendment rights of dissenting against government policy, without constitutionally-based warrants or trials (in other words, an unconstitutional bill). The militarization of America, locally, nationally and in international locales has been ongoing for decades, including the end of a 100-plus year old law called "Posse Comitatus" during the Bush II years, which prior to its dismantlement had basically forbade the military from engaging in domestic law enforcement.

Similar to the calls in the New Testament to help the poor, the ACORN organization that has been the object of reckless criticism, propaganda outbursts, and defunding by Congress, has done exactly that, assisting the poor and the downtrodden with voter registration, housing, legal services, etc.  No wonder that the corporate mainstream news media, especially the FOX network propagandists, made up a scandal out of bare cloth and was instrumental in turning it into a national brouhaha.  Of course, the "Republican" network does not want the poor voting in great numbers, because they tend not to vote for Republicans, which is why FOX will take advantage of any flimsy evidence or outright fabrication to make an organization that helps the poor look bad.  "FOX News" is not really a news organization, it is essentially a network of right-wing political operatives.  Our only question is why did the Democratic-controlled Congress go along with this defunding of ACORN when i…

West Virginia Mining Tragedy

The nation was sad today and yesterday to learn about the coal mining tragedy that killed scores in West Virginia, and hopes for the best in the effort to rescue any survivors.  Despite improvements over the last half century in improving mining safety, more has to be done to ensure that mine operators abide by the current regulations, and more regulations are probably needed since the former Bush regime de-regulated just about everything during their eight years of misrule.

Post-script (written on April 8, 2010):  The Party of Commons offers our condolences to the families of the deceased miners.

A Menace to Public Health

Genetically engineered (GE) food, which is the destabilization of the natural molecular structure of seeds and plants, and not merely the hybridization of different plants and crops, is a menace to public health.  However, the corrupt political legislative bodies and administrators in America are under orders from their corporate bosses not to allow the public the choice of whether to consume these experimental degenerate foods by refusing to mandate labeling of GE products.  Labeling is far from a ban that exists in more enlightened areas, from a public health standpoint, like the European Union, but at least the consumer would know which foods contain GE and which does not.  A ban could be instituted later, after labeling would show the folly of trying to make this ill-considered experiment on Mother Nature and the American public acceptable.

No Roll Back, No Change

Why isn't Barack Obama trying to roll back George W. Bush's eight-year authoritarian attack on citizens' civil liberties and the Constitution that Bush pushed through with executive orders, laws and policies? Frankly because Obama and his Democratic Party cohorts voted for some of the same laws, such as the wiretapping law, that Bush advocated for, and they certainly did not protest Bush's dubious executive orders much. Obama was not our first choice for president despite his professed concern about civil liberties, as if his voting record was not a clear indication of the disconnect between his words and his actions. Now, as president, Obama has proved that our initial reluctance about his candidacy was prophetic. Still, he's better than any of the odious candidates from the Republican Party, with the exception of Ron Paul (from a foreign policy and civil liberties standpoint). Albeit, the "Commons" Party does believe in pragmatism when it's necessa…

A Friend of Labor

As the Democratic majority Legislature in Washington has eagerly fallen into the grip of the corporate behemoth, workers have been forgotten and left to fend off the great behemoth on their own. Recently, a significant workers' rights bill, supported by the major labor unions, was forsaken by both Democrats and Republicans. The corporate overseers were glad to see the Democratic and Republican legislators following their orders, especially the Democrats since they were in control and the ones most likely to become a little feisty since the workers were counting on them to represent their interests and therein the interests of the people at large. Unfortunately, that was misplaced hope, because while Democrats give soothing words to the masses, they are subordinate to the ones that fill their campaign coffers. So, now, workers continue to be under the iron thumb of the great behemoth that with the help of the United States Supreme Court is increasingly gaining more political power …

Mark Greene's state representative campaign is off to a strong start despite the de facto opposition of the corporate mainstream news media and the financial prowess of the opposing corporatist mainline parties (Democratic & Republican). Mark will cooperate with the corporate media to the extent that it is necessary, but Mark and the Party of Commons will not spend a lot of time making overtures to them. When Mark took his campaign on the road recently, one person scoffed at the idea of him thinking that he could beat either of the mainline parties in an election. That is the thinking of people who are satisfied with the status quo and would do absolutely nothing to change it even if they weren't. To make a contribution to Mark's campaign, send a check or money order to the Mark Greene for State Representative Committee, P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.

"Republican" Newspaper May Factor in Election

The Sound Publishing/Recorder company in Western Washington, which specializes in small community newspapers, is getting ready to bring out more election bias. For instance, despite the official entry of Mark Greene in the various 41st legislative district elections, they have chosen only to write about the campaign of a Republican challenger, Steve Litzow, in this early phase. The paper, which was practically an arm of Councilman Reagan Dunn's campaign in 2009, is a de facto Republican newspaper, and can be counted on to be extremely biased in their coverage of elections and editorial content in favor of their corporatist friends, which of course can also mean certain Democrats. The Party of Commons will do our best to let the community know about specific journalistic bias in elections so that the considerable influence of papers like "Recorder" and televison companies like "Fox" can be lessened to some degree.

The Party of Commons opposes the "Max Baucus" health care bill which may be voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives this week. We support a "single payer" system or at least a public option, but this bill contains neither and would delay significant health care reform for at least a century. If the corrupt private health care insurers are actually opposing the bill, it is with a fox's smile, because they win with or without the bill, and their CEO's will get their multi-million dollar bonuses either way.

Initiative 1075

The Party of Commons is anxiously awaiting the language for the ballot title & summary from the Attorney General's Office for Initiative 1075, which is about election candidacy petitions. We are serious about getting this on the ballot in November, so please write to sign and circulate this petition once the ballot title comes out. This will be a grassroots effort to try to get a quarter of a million signatures in 3 months, and it won't be easy. This initiative will make it easier for common people to run for office and will probably put an end to all of the unopposed election contests in Washington. The initiative can be read in its entirety from the Washington Secretary of State's website (go to elections section and then initiative subsection, or click on the title link, above). We will greatly appreciate any help you can give us, including a contribution to Democracy In Election Process, P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.

Electoral Campaign

The Party of Commons is readying for the long electoral campaign in the 41st district of Washington. We hope to have candidates for both of the house of representative offices as we write our campaign slogans and platforms, get our petitions drawn up, line up our volunteers, and ask the people for their votes. With all the general dissatisfaction with incumbents across the board, this should be a good year for third parties. If you would like to volunteer, please, send us an e-mail at the address below.

Government Stops Unemployment Benefits

The mostly multi-millionaire run, if not entirely, corrupt United States Senate stopped some unemployment benefits, affecting hundreds of thousands of citizens in the midst of the worst economic depression since the Great Depression. If the Republicans take control of Congress, again, they would stop unemployment compensation altogether and throw millions of Americans out onto the street.

The Republicans' former leader, the repulsive Newt Gingrich, who appears to be running for president, once implied years ago that he would like to get rid of the unemployment compensation system altogether. The Republicans would like to dismantle the entire "New Deal" and "Great Society" infrastructure altogether, including social security and medicare. Presently, the weakling Democratic Party has the greatest numerical control of Congress in decades, yet they cannot bring themselves to stop Republican obstructionism of bills, and appointments by the president through strong a…

Initiative to the People: Election Candidacy Petition

The chairman of the Party of Commons has once again filed an initiative in Washington state for reform of the election candidacy petition system, which at this time makes poor candidates get more signatures when elected officeholders get pay raises. This system is fundamentally unfair and antidemocratic, and causes some candidates the loss of a fair chance to run for elected office. As a result, many incumbents run unopposed and the voters are left with no choice. Free and fair elections in Washington, and other states with the same type of system, have gone by the wayside. Conversely (as opposed to this new Initiative to the People), the U.S. Supreme Court recently allowed corporatists who care nothing for poor candidates or poor people to have much more influence over elections. This year, the initiative is to the People of Washington. Please, help us circulate petitions by writing the Party of Commons at the e-mail address below.

Dirty Tricks in Hoosier Land

Evan Bayh, a Clinton-type Democrat from Indiana, decided he wasn't going to run for re-election as a national senator this year. His timing for making the unexpected announcement has been rather controversial as he made it right before the candidate filing time limit, thereby catching the political class in Indiana off guard. Apparently, in Indiana, some candidates, if not all, have to get petition signatures to make the ballot, so those who were not expecting a so-called open seat to develop in the senate race a day or so before the time limit were caught off guard. This was obviously planned by Bayh so that progressives in the state could not have enough time to run a candidate or two for the senate, thereby allowing the right wing Democrats, in charge of the Democratic Party apparatus in Indiana, the opportunity to name his replacement on the ballot. Republicans are also upset and want a court to extend the filing time limit.

The court should not approve a filing extension e…

Big Business and Tax Shelters

While the Washington state government practically goes broke, big business in this state is keeping a lot of well needed taxable funds hidden through tax shelters, such as forming business entities in other states as a way to avoid taxes here. Legislators in Washington willingly allow this to happen, although they could block some of these practices, because they are in the hip pocket of big business. The State of Washington could also get its fair share of individual multi-million dollar capital gains that are derived from doing business here. Capital gains have been taxed less on a percentage basis than taxes on average workers in America. Instead legislators would rather add more and higher fees for state services and drive up college tuition for state colleges. State expenditures, after all, are for the commons (everyone who lives in Washington): roads, transit, security, colleges, environmental and forestry programs, health and welfare services, and the general functioning of st…

Organizing the Youth Vote

In the 41st District state representative election, the youth vote will be critical for the success of Mark Greene and the Party of Commons (the one party that is advocating the vote for those ages 16 and 17). Mark will be visiting the community college campuses in the 41st district and the University of Washington in trying to organize and pick up this vote as he will speak to youth issues concerning the budget crisis in Washingon state, out-of-control college tuition costs, trade issues that have a big effect on the economy (the Party of Commons is calling for more and larger tariffs to protect American jobs), and the shrinking of the middle class as income gaps between economic classes get bigger.

Mark's Running for State Representative

It's official. Mark Greene is running for state representative in the 41st District, position #2, in the Washington Legislature. His likely competitor is Judy Clibborn, the incumbent. We will be going over her record with a fine tooth comb and publishing it on one of our blogs. Mark had a choice of running for the other representative position that has a freshman legislator, but decided to run against someone with a long voting history that is probably part and parcel of the reason why Washington has lost faith in its politicians. Mark will be running simultaneously for the state house of representatives (election in 2010) and secretary of state (election in 2012).

Profile In Courage

Sad sacks, Al Gore and John Kerry, in 2000 and 2004, respectively, let George Bush, Jr. steal presidential elections from them, and in Kerry's case, without even the least little fight. As for Gore, he looked ridiculous as he first conceded the election, thereby yielding the high ground to Bush, and then decided to let his lawyers contest the election. After the Supreme Court stupefyingly stopped a Floridian vote count, Gore didn't try to stop Bush's coronation through the House of Representatives. Neither of the sad sacks have the gumption or courage of Ukraine's Yulia Tymoshenko, a dynamic politician who was one of the leaders of the Orange Revolution that overthrew a rigged presidential vote several years ago, and this year, as a candidate for president, is still determined to make sure there is an honest vote count in the wake of last weekend's Ukrainian election. If the "Democrats" in America had even half the courage of Tymoshenko, they might cou…

Will Authorities Arrest Nemesis of "Commons"?

Now that Mark Greene has all but decided to run for the state house of representatives in Washington's 41st district in 2010, and is simultaneously a candidate for secretary of state in 2012, the remote control nemesis disrupting the chairman's computer is now actively interfering in an active election campaign, but do the authorities care? Not hardly. In authoritarian America, Uncle Sam's agents (or their proxies) have free rein to do whatever they damn well please, disrupt elections, steal mail, make warrantless wire taps, and particularly harass vulnerable law-abiding political groups who don't get support from either of the two-party colossuses. There will be no arrests and no penalties for disrupting and interfering in these elections in America, willfully causing our side to be at a distinct disadvantage. Par for the course in 2010. Now, time for the authoritarian hypocrites to preach to the rest of the world about freedom and democracy.

Repeal Law called "Gramm, Leach, Bliley"

The so-called Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999, i.e., "Gramm, Leach, Bliley," effectively repealed the Depression-era Glass-Steagall Act which separated commercial banking from investment business. "Gramm, Leach, Bliley" has directly led to the economic crisis that our nation faces today. Senators Maria Cantwell - WA and John McCain - AZ (believe it or not) are among those senators and congresspersons that are rightfully trying to restore "Glass-Steagall" as the very critical financial downturn of the last several months has shown that the banks need re-regulating. The Obama administration, however, is resistant to this progressive change; of course, their economic divisions are run by the same "Wall Streeters" that got our nation into this crisis. Whoever would have thought that John McCain would turn out to be more progressive than Obama on a very important economic issue. Interesting, indeed.

Chairman Rushes Contribution to Relief Organization

In the wake of the gigantic earthquake tragedy on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, particularly in Haiti, Chairman Mark Greene has rushed a personal contribution of $15 to a relief organization that is helping the people of Haiti with emergency aid. Although, $15 is small, if one hundred thousand people sent $15 apiece, that would be one million five hundred thousand dollars in urgently needed funds for the country of Haiti where reportedly tens of thousands have died as a result of the earthquake. If possible, please contribute what you can to any relief organization that is helping, though try to make sure that whom you contribute to is an accredited charitable organization, such as checking with the Better Business Bureau.

Congress and Health Care

The corrupt Congress instead of reforming health care is actually about to hand a bonanza to the equally corrupt private health care insurers by mandating, probably unconstitutionally, that all citizens buy health insurance from private insurers without a public option. Of course, many of these congresspersons get campaign donations from the same private insurers, so while they are trying to pull the wool over the public's eyes by calling this sham health care reform, they and the private insurers that they are in cahoots with will be laughing all the way to the bank. After this sham is codified into law, the poor and the downtrodden will be penalized if they cannot afford to buy insurance from the corrupt insurers. It's ridiculous and immoral, and all but a handful of this 111th Congress that are up for election this year should be voted out of power.

Mark and the Campaign

If Mark runs for state senate this year, we can assure you that his campaign will be top-flight, professional, hard fought and persevering. Mark will not run his campaign out of some fancy office suite surrounded by corporate overseers and hired hands such as the sure to come plutocratic-serving candidates probably would, including whoever the appointed person from the council will be. Mark will be the one working in the field, shaking the hands, making the speeches, getting out the brochures, and Mark's volunteers will take significant roles in strategy sessions and overall campaign decisions. Mark has pledged that if he runs this year, he will work harder than he has ever worked in an election before. If Mark runs, you can be sure that commoners will have a friend on the ballot that has a very good chance to win.

Jarrett's Resignation May Open Up Opportunity for Mark

The "Democrat-Republican" in the Washington State Senate for the 41st District, Fred Jarrett, will be resigning from the Senate if he hasn't already. Jarrett is taking the position of Deputy Executive for King County which was offered to him by Dow Constantine. This means there will be a special election this year for that state senate position which just happens to be the district that Mark lives in. This may open up an opportunity for our chairman, Mark Greene, if he decides to avail himself of it. This would mean that Mark would run simultaneously for that position and for Secretary of State (the elections for each would be in different election cycles). The Party of Commons may yet get our first position in government if Mark wins his first general election.

"Commons" Is Against a Cashless Society

With the debate over the new transit fee-paying system in the Seattle area going on, many commoners are rightfully protesting the so-called ORCA card (issued by the transit authority) that invades the privacy of passengers and also happens to be a sleazy way of getting more money from riders rather than just honestly saying that the new system will be a monumental increase in fares. The card, if it is registered by name, and it pretty much is if it is an employer issued card, would let bureaucrats and employers know where you are going on transit and how you use the card, generally. You can still use cash on the new system, but there is a penalty if you do so.

This is all part of a plan by many politicians in America to bring about a cashless society, where every single transaction that the public makes is by name and put on some card where bureaucrats and police can track practically every thing we do, including everything we buy. It would be a giant leap to the late author George Orw…
