Skip to comments.Clintons and other left-wing liars [what I KNOW about election 2000]

As a Florida Republican, I listened to the press lie through the 2000 recounts, pause for an obscenely short time after 9-11, and pick up the refrain - the campaign of lies..."Gore won" "Bush is selected."
Remember when the press "discovered" the old mildly-intoxicated-while-driving Bush "scandal" a week before the election? Coincidentally, earlier that same day, Janet Reno told the press that she would be opening an investigation into Al Gore's pulling the plug on a multi-year drug investigation (after the Houston detectives cried foul at the cover-up) because the #1 suspect made a BIG $$$ donation to Al's campaign. A mob of "mainstream" journalists chased the ancient DUI story. The Washington Times reported the Gore story, too.
When I asked a local SW Florida NBC-TV news manager why the Gore story was being covered-up, following three days of "DUI" coverage into the weekend before election day, this news boss said of the Washington Times, "That right-wing rag?! It's owned by the Moonies." I asked him whether he believed that Janet Reno would grant the Washington Times an exclusive? He conceded the point, but no mention of the Gore story appeared on his news channel or in the mainstream media. No daily reports from NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Boston Globe, NPR + the INTER-national press - or press mobs chasing Gore across parking lots demanding that he spill all.
Can we say "left-wing" media? Popular vote?
Florida Republicans fought the attempted election theft by the Florida Dem. election machine and their army of lawyers who descended on our fair state during election 2000. Surprise, we didn't let them steal the election. We bypassed the DNC press and informed ourselves and our neighbors. We now have the internet, can go directly to sources and share information with neighbors and friends.
While the Democrats are still blaming those Votomatic punch card machines (like the one in Palm Beach) for Gore's loss, it was Bush who was hurt in the Votomatic counties...including my Republican Lee County. Impeachment manager Bill McCollum received more votes for Senate than did George W. Bush for President in Lee, Palm Beach, Charlotte counties. Think about that. Voters voted for Bill McCollum and Al Gore?
Oh, and those "hick" counties, the "red" counties in Florida with fewer than 10,000 voters? All but one of those 22 Florida counties voted for BUSH and they are ALL Democrat-majority counties with Dem. election personnel...and ALL recounted (as did EVERY county in Florida (just not 2 or 3 times 'til ballots could be manipulated for Gore))- and the HONEST Democrats in the small Florida counties showed mostly single digit changes in the recounts, mostly insignificant. As a friend said, "my Democratic neighbors are southern Democrats with family values and they don't trust Gore."
Did you hear of a Republican* voting twice? Republican* felons voting in large blocks? Republican* illegal immigrants? Republicans* in nursing homes and hospitals "helping" incompetent patients vote? Republicans* adding non-resident names to the voting rosters at the polling locations? Republicans* poking holes in ballots/ eating chads? Writing books about recounts and how to win elections by manipulating ballots? Did Republicans* have a GOTV center set up in a Palm Beach law office, with "ballot protest" forms and a telecom company (a little bankrupt firm called Telequest that sold to a company from India days later for millions $$), set up in advance, as well as a team of lawyers ready to put the "recount" campaign in place? Did a Republican* lawyer lie about an Illinois "dimple decision" to the national press and in court? Did Republicans* go into the inner cities and tell the voters that George W. Bush would send them back to slavery? Did a Republican* Florida Supreme Court ignore existing state law to allow carefully selected Republican* counties recounts, and then change the laws as it was necessary to help Republicans*? Did a Republican* send a memo to every one of 67 counties - not based on Florida law - telling poll workers how to disqualify military ballots? Did Republicans* prevent over 500 Florida students from Liberty University (Jerry Falwell's school) from receiving their absentee ballots? Did Republicans* misdirect military mail? Make it exceedingly difficult for military overseas to vote? Did the Republican* press cover up the massive Dem. dirty tricks? Did a Republican* Florida elect our Republican House, Republican Governor and GHW Bush over Bill Clinton in 1992? Is the Republican* press still lying?
The false charge of "racism" was the most destructive lie of all...the DNC knew exactly how that lie would play in the inner cities where they frightened young children and incited hatred. Teachers and parents comforted children who were terrified that Pres. Bush would make them slaves.
"Racist" Republican Bush was a topic of discussion at the UN conference on racism, where American "civil rights" "leaders" carried out their post-election 2000 campaign of deceit in front of an international audience and sympathetic left-wing press.
Leaders from over 180 nations listened as speakers railed against the "racist" American leadership during a week of Bush, American and Israel bashing, taking home the message to their respective countries. What enemy of America wouldn't be encouraged by this display of international enmity against US? The UN "racism" conference ended two days before 9-11-01.
Don't bother trying to find this info in America's textbooks, University websites, press accounts. You probably won't find the AP graph showing the before and after recount totals from all 67 Florida counties, and the Palm Beach voting records? Accidentally destroyed.
At the end of the day, election 2002 was the smoking gun that exposed both the lack of gravitas and pattern of deceit by a puffed-up, partisan far-left press, international PR agents of the shady, scheming, mean-spirited socialists, bullies, despots and scoundrels - aka the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy.
What's up with this? What would it show?
The Dems still re-writing the past (just listen to Gray Davis whiney analysis of why he is being recalled); in Clinton voice and word, he covers his butt via a 'right-wing' conspiracy (from east coast to west. . .) Only word missing is 'v a s t'.
But then that belongs to Hillary.
This should be copied and parts thereof. . .saved for the right windshield. . .Starbucks tabletop and left in a Borders/Barnes&Noble Lib mag as things heat up!
Look at the numbers. Rick Santorum running for reelection and arguably much more conservative than Bush, received 200,000 more votes than Bush did in PA. Show me the damn voter that went out and voted for Santorum and Gore!
I have repeatedly told the RNC that they kiss my butt until they adopt a platform that addresses voter fraud. I take my politics seriously and am sick at the thought of what goes on and everyone damn well knows it!
Wish I didn't know they'd sink this low.
FR helped save the day. What a great tool for reaching people, debunking DNC PR, organizing rallies!
I believe you.
We have to remain vigilant, work as election personnel in the BIG cities, win by bigger margins, and do what Jeb did in 2002 - when Terry McAuliffe threatened to use DNC lawyers as poll watchers across Florida on election day - Jeb brought in the DOJ to observe. Heh.
