Rigged Elections, an illusion of Democracy

We as a nation dare to criticize foreign governments and their elections, but what of our own?

In recent history, most countries have been guilty of Voter Fraud the list is as endless as there are governments and countries. From Kosovo, Malaysia, El Salvador, Namibia, Afghanistan, India, Germany, Kenya, Pakistan, Russia, Egypt, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Azerbaijan, Haiti, Georgia and yes even the United States.

The latest media and neo-con hyperbole about Iran and a fraudulent election continue the ongoing rant about every foreign government and their elections except one, The United States whose history is as tainted as any country!

The most notable Election tampering in the United States began with Franklin Delano Roosevelt, not to imply that elections were not rigged prior to FDR, but this is the first well identified case. The election of Roosevelt was rigged by two distinct groups, the Italian Mafia and the Jewish Mafia. To insure Roosevelt’s longevity in office his serious rival Huey P. Long was assassinated. In payment to the Mob for their efforts Roosevelt aggressively promoted through congress the National Labor Relations Act, known as the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) which gave the Mob complete control over the Unions by requiring all litigation between the labor force and their Union to be heard by the Board. In addition it set up a short Statute of Limitations (6 months) that ran before the Union Member even knew he had a claim.

Other Presidents that have gained the presidency through Mob support and rigged elections were Richard Nixon and John Fitzgerald Kennedy. When Nixon lost the first election to Kennedy in 1960, he challenged that election, then being offered the future office by the Chicago Mob he withdrew his challenge and waited his turn. These elections were won through a method called Ballet Box Stuffing, deceased voters in Illinois and Texas managed to cast numerous ballets.

George W Bush won the elections in 2000, and 2004 through rigged elections in at least Florida, where his brother was then governor, and Ohio, by tampering with computers.

Free elections, especially in the US are a myth, a grand illusion, the Power elite, who intermarried for wealth and control, run the country through their banking interest, Wall Street. The wealth of these well known American elitists was made through the illegal Drug trade with China. To understand how their wealth was achieved you must first understand the history of the Skull and Bones, the Yale University branch of the German Cult the Thule Society.

The background of Skull and Bones (whose members include the entire Bush Family and John Kerry) is a story of Opium and Empire, and a bitter struggle for political control over the new U.S. Republic.

This cult is essentially an assembly of the wealthy, elite. But there are in fact congruent organizations at other Ivy League colleges, which reflect, as does Skull and Bones, the over-arching power of several heavily intermarried financier families.

Skull and Bones--the Russell Trust Association--was first established among the class graduating from Yale in 1833. Its founder was William Huntington Russell of Middletown, Connecticut. The Russell family was the master of incalculable wealth derived from the largest U.S. criminal drug syndicate and organization of the nineteenth century: Russell and Company, the great opium syndicate.

The Russells’ were protected as part of the multiple-intermarried grouping of families then ruling Connecticut: the blood-proud members of the Russell, Pierpont, Edwards, Burr, Griswold, Day, Alsop and Hubbard families were prominent in the pro-British Party within the state. Many of their sons over the years would be among the members chosen for the Skull and Bones, and thus political office.

Samuel Russell, second cousin to Skull and Bones founder William H., established Russell and Company in 1823; its business was to acquire opium from Turkey and smuggle it into China, where it was strictly prohibited, this was accomplished under the armed protection of the British Empire.

The prior, predominant American family in this field had been the syndicate created by Thomas Handasyd Perkins of Newburyport, Massachusetts, an aggregation of the self-styled blue-bloods, or Brahmins of Boston's North Shore. Forced out of the lucrative African slave trade by U.S. law and Caribbean slave revolts, leaders of the Cabot, Lowell, Higginson, Forbes, Cushing and Sturgis families had married Perkins’ siblings and children. The Perkins opium syndicate made the fortune and established the power of these families. By the 1830s, the Russells had bought out the Perkins syndicate and made Connecticut the primary center of the U.S. opium business. Massachusetts families Coolidge, Sturgis, Forbes and Delano later joined the Connecticut, Alsop and New York, Low smuggler-millionaires under the Russell banner.

Certain of the prominent Boston opium families, such as Cabot and Weld, did not affiliate directly with Russell, Connecticut and Yale, but were identified instead with Harvard.

These intermarried Massachusetts and Connecticut families associated themselves with the British East India Company in the opium traffic into China. These families made increased profits, as partners and surrogates for the British, during the bloody 1839-42 Opium War; the race war of British forces against Chinese defenders.

A review of Russell's organization shows the following men among Russells' partners:
* Augustine Heard (1785-1868): ship captain and pioneer U.S. opium smuggler.
* John Cleve Green (1800-75): married to Sarah Griswold; gave a fortune in opium profits to Princeton University, financing three Princeton buildings and four professorships; trustee of the Princeton Theological Seminary for 25 years.
* Abiel Abbott Low (1811-93): his opium fortune financed the construction of the Columbia University New York City campus; father of Columbia's president Seth Low.
* John Murray Forbes (1813-98): his opium millions financed the career of author Ralph Waldo Emerson, who married Forbes's daughter, and bankrolled the establishment of the Bell Telephone Company, whose first president was Forbes's son.
* Joseph Coolidge: his Augustine Heard agency got $10 Million Dollars yearly as surrogates for the Scottish dope-runners
* Jardine Matheson during the fighting in China; his son organized the United Fruit Company; his grandson, Archibald Cary Coolidge, was the founding executive officer of the Anglo-Americans' Council on Foreign Relations.
* Warren Delano, Jr.: chief of Russell and Co. in Canton; grandfather of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
* Russell Sturgis: his grandson by the same name was chairman of the Baring Bank in England, financiers of the Far East opium trade.

Such persons as John C. Green and A. A. Low, whose names are on various buildings at Princeton and Columbia Universities, made no attempt to hide the origin of their money. Neither did the Cabots, the Higginsons or the Welds for Harvard. Secret groups (or sects) at other colleges are analogous with and related to Yale's Skull and Bones.

At Princeton it’s the Eating Clubs, Ivy Club and Cottage Club, whose tradition runs from Jonathan Edwards and Aaron Burr to the Dulles brothers; at Harvard is the Porcelain (known as the Porc or Pig club); Theodore Roosevelt was a member; Franklin Roosevelt was in the “Fly Club”.

The Skull and Bones was not the original secret sect at Yale University, previously there was the Society of Brothers in Unity.' Joseph Heatly Dulles was an Alumni of this secret society. Dulles's grandson was the father of Allen Dulles and John Foster Dulles. Allen Dulles became one of the CIA Directors.

Today it’s no longer the Mob that rigs our elections. Now it is the financial wealth of these families and those they choose, rigging elections are much simpler today, the computer touch screen has been shown to be programmable, to switch votes or to lose them completely. Between corrupted State and Federal elections, and a justice department continually under the control of the corrupting force, we as a nation have lost our right to elect our own representatives, indeed even to choose our own national destiny.

Perhaps France had the answer to cure corruption?
