Lazy Journalism

At least before the Malaysian Airlines mystery became prominent, MSNBC had been focusing on Governor Chris Christie and New Jersey government misdeeds with laser beam focus, and all that is very well, because crime by high officials needs to be reported on.  However, this cable station that sometimes does special profiles on long ago government conspiracies and crimes, such as the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq, might want to save some of that New Jersey-style investigative zeal to look at the year 2004 in particular and the various election mysteries and probable election crimes that all seemed to coalesce that year.  Maybe, even take a look at controversial election results in general, including years subsequent to '04.  Crooks deciding who should wield the reins of government instead of "We the People."  Guess that's too boring of a subject for the lazy, sycophantic press to be bothered with.

The previous post, "Rep. Adam Smith's Political Trickery," has been revised.
The Stolen Election
Now, that the filing period for Congress is only weeks away, we must continue to bring up the matter of the Stolen Ninth District G.O.P. Primary Election of 2004, in which it is very probable that criminal, anti-democracy outsiders (possibly rogue elements from within the government's intelligence apparatus, but we have continually stressed that Adam Smith was not involved) changed the results through remote control and handed the election to Paul Lord, a political novice.  Commoner suspects that Mark Greene's criticism of the sitting president at that time, George W. Bush, was the motive behind the theft.  Another motive may have been to conduct a test run for manipulating the 2004 presidential election.  Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" by contacting real journalists (in other words, don't bother with the Seattle Times)…

Rep. Adam Smith's Political Trickery

Of course, the corrupt corporate news media, that didn't tell readers or listeners a word about the 2011 King County Director of Elections race, isn't going to say anything about Rep. Adam Smith's hypocrisy in sponsoring a bill against indefinite detention of American citizens even though he was one of the majority in Congress that voted, in 2011, FOR the proviso in the National Defense Authorization Act that authorizes indefinite detention of Americans and others without lawyers, trials or anything else.  Despite the Constitution that says this is forbidden, they effectively wrote into the legal code that persons can just be disappeared, now, similar to Argentina disappearing people a few decades ago, especially political opponents and dissidents.  Even so-called Banana Republics are better at subtlety.

Now, Smith, a few years after his vote against the Bill of Rights, is suddenly for the Magna Carta, Habeas Corpus, and the United States Constitution.  Smith knows very w…

Fewer Posts on Blogs Until Filing Period Passes

The Commons Party is busily trying to get Mark Greene on the ballot for Congress in the 9th Congressional District, with signatures, between now and mid-May, the filing period for candidates for just about all offices in Washington state.  Not only that, but still trying to push one of the handful of GMO labeling initiatives or propositions in the country, through Initiative 1338.  Therefore, there is not a lot of time to write on these blogs, so the posts on Commoner and our other blogs will be sporadic, at best, until mid-May. 

We don't even have time to worry about what Rep. Adam Smith is doing between now and then, though we are doing are best to keep abreast of how he's mishandling the affairs of our nation, such as making sure that the N.S.A. has an even stronger boot on the necks of law-abiding citizens going about their lawful activities, or trying to undercut the pensions of U.S. Armed Forces veterans.  If Smith wants to balance the budget, he should try to stop tax…

Blog News LXXIII

The post "Freedom Reigns," about crises in Ukraine, has been moved to our Common Ground blog, and given a different title: "Freedom Amongst Crises."

Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2013 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Please, ask these journalists to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. For more information: see 2/26/13 post entitled "Major Election Irregularities (Graph & Essay). Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected. 

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Com…
