Ah, the memory hole… I wonder why the press and Glenn Greenwald didn’t get behind this whistleblower?

Russia’s December 4 elections filled 450 State Duma seats, Russia’s Federal Assembly lower house.
Claims of electoral fraud followed. All elections have irregularities. At issue is whether results are comprised. Election monitor Golos accusations were spurious. America’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED) funds it. It supports regime change in non-US client states.
It backs opposition groups, conducts propaganda campaigns, and does openly what CIA operatives do covertly to destabilize sitting governments.

Rand Paul , Jim DeMint , and Rob Portman have “won” their respective races and will be joining each other in the US Senate in a couple of months. Rand got there by legacy (his daddy earned him the seat) and Jim by election fraud in the Democratic primary (proven by Vic Rawls in the SC Democratic Party hearing, while Alvin Greene didn’t even bother showing up) and DLC complicity. But no matter how they each got there, these neoliberal business class servants will be pushing the corporate agenda in DC come January.
Rand Paul raised tons of money back in the day when Alex Jones kept hawking him as some kind of dedicated “outsider”. Fact was, the man is a die-hard neoliberal/Libertarian; business first, free-markets, privatize everything, destroy the department of education (so they can hand that chunk of money over to BIG BUSINESS as well), open borders, deregulation of all business… ect. ect. ect.
That’s the Washington consensus folks… it’s Hillary Clinton’s agenda just as much as it is George W. Bush’s. You can’t get more “status quo” in DC than that. I guess that’s why Rand met with the neocons and AIPAC in the same week just before the election to assure them he was nothing like the character he played when talking to AJ.
Alvin Greene raised less than $5,000 for his senate “campaign” so he didn’t even have to disclose where the money came from.
There was no campaign from Alvin Greene, none… all he did was use someone else’s money to sign up for the primary then he sat back and let the electronic voting machines cheat Vic Rawls out of the senate . In the end, Greene didn’t even put up a fight against Jim DeMint and just let him keep his seat in the Senate. Because that was the plan all along.

Though they knew the election results were flawed and probably hacked, and even though Alvin Greene has been “disrespecting” democrats since this all began, and though they know he will lose to Jim DeMint… the South Carolina Democratic Party Executive Committee voted to reject the valid protest and thus ensured that once again, without showing up, Alvin Greene wins again. The most dispicable thing of all is afterward they announced a move to honor Vic Rawl for a lifetime of service to the Democratic Party of South Carolina… and gave him a standing ovation. This is the state of politics in the Corporatist Neoliberal Democratic Party; fuck over the voters and a life-long democrat in service to a corrupt republican. And do it right to his face.
Even though I predicted this outcome, during the hearing, which I watched all of it, I came to believe that NO ONE… NO ONE could possibly have the audacity to vote against the motion to have a new primary election with all the evidence presented showing the election results were flawed. The order of the hearing was that they had to vote BASED ON THE PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED… ALVIN’S SIDE PRESENTED NO EVIDENCE.
Go to the Vic Rawl for Senate website at 3 pm EDT today to watch the Executive Board of the South Carolina Democratic Party undermine Vic Rawl’s legitimate protest in favor of the Neoliberal Party of America.
the South Carolina Democratic Party Executive Committee prefers to conduct their whitewash in the dark opting that ONLY corporate MSM be allowed to view the goddamn hearing!
here is the live feed… Vic Rawl TV LIVE BLOG – Things I learned
1 A candidate can stay on the ticket, on the ballot, even if he NEVER files with the Federal Election Committee…. he is just subject to “fines” – wow
2 Vic Rawl protest will be the SECOND hearing on the docket. Mayes (?)vs Hodges is first… (this may take a while :( )
3 Mayes’ daughter testifying for him says… OMG… that poll workers were offering to buy… oh no, don’t say it… Kentucky Fried Chicken for voters if they voted a certain way…. I know… I didn’t say it…they were bribing voters with fried chicken …
4 THEY HAVE SHUT DOWN THE LIVE FEED 3:30
5 ITS BACK UP – 4:23 (looks like they blacked out the first protest hearing)
6. the chairman is going to make a statement prior to the Rawl protest hearing…
ALVIN GREENE IS NOT THERE AT THIS POINT!!!!! 4:41 edt (he told them he didn’t want to show up… no LAWYER AT THIS TIME FOR HIM EITHER)
see the live blog after the break

While Alvin Greene is busy playing his mockumentary version of “Lenny” from Of Mice and Men, the Democratic Party establishment is doing everything they can to keep anyone from doubting the legitimacy of the South Carolina primary while it seems at least some republican media outlets are allowing time for those calling these DRE systems into question?
This is a recent CNN interview with Alvin “can I pet the rabbits George” Greene which devolves into some kind of bizarro world “Rain Man” skit from Saturday Night Live. Notice how the Democratic Nominee for the Senate in South Carolina cleverly utilizes the classic “I know you are… but what am I?” tactic when confronted with the names of some S.C. dems who think he might be a little “disabled”. It’s so clever, in fact, Alvin gives himself a little chuckle afterward…
The most important thing for the establishment Neoliberal Party is to make sure that no one questions this years pro-business candidate hacks already written into the code of our upcoming elections. So the veal pen is busy Tru-Casting comments into any blog that just might question what happened in South Carolina and their spin-doctors are feeding talking points to their establishment scribes as fast as they can.

Alvin Greene is pretending to be an idiot. He is doing it because someone doesn’t want a strong populist democrat like Vic Rawls running against Jim DeMint in South Carolina for his seat in the United States Senate. Jim DeMint is a strong neoliberal senator who can’t wait to vote to hand over social security to the Wall Street bankers. During an interview with Manuel Roig-Franzia of the Washington Post, Greene put on this little show…
Greene “shining a negative light on our state” is the lead story. The news report says he has not entered a plea or been indicted in connection with the obscenity charge. Greene asks: “I have not been indicted? Indicted? What does that mean?” His brother explains that a charge and an indictment are different things. He nods.
“I’m on the not-guilty side of things,” Greene says. “I have to be. I mean, I mean, I mean. I have no comment, I mean.”
… “Folks should be given a chance to correct themselves. Somebody could just be trying to get somebody in trouble. You see, somebody, you know — you just can’t work around somebody. It’s hard. I’m just trying to talk about something, frankly. I’m just trying to talk from my perspective. People should be friendly. I mean, leave it alone.” MSNBC
Alvin Greene’s moron performance is wearing a little thin.
Alvin Greene received a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina in Political Science in 2000 and he rose to the position of Intelligence Specialist during his military career.
The University of South Carolina confirms that Greene graduated in 2000 with a degree in political science. The Pentagon confirms that he served in the Army, and in the Army and Air Force national guards. Although Greene has not boasted of winning awards, the Pentagon says he was granted the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and Korean Defense Service Medal. MSNBC
A man holding a degree in political science doesn’t know what an indictment is? You think?
