Senator Paul Wellstone
The Rumsfeld-Bush plan to employ murder and terrorism for political,
financial and ideological gain does have historical roots (besides
al-Qaida, the Stern Gang, the SA, the SS, the KGB, the IRA, the UDF,
Eta, Hamas, Shining Path and countless other upholders of Bushian
morality, decency and freedom). We refer of course to Operations
Northwoods, oft mentioned in these pages: the plan that America's top
military brass presented to President John Kennedy in 1963, calling
for a phony terrorist campaign -- complete with bombings,
hijackings, plane crashes and dead Americans -- to provide
"justification" for an invasion of Cuba, the mafia/corporate fiefdom
that had recently been lost to Castro.
Rumsfeld has resurrected Northwoods, but on a far grander scale, with
resources at his disposal undreamed of by those brass of yore, with
no counterbalancing global rival to restrain him -- and with an
ignorant, corrupt president who has shown himself all too eager to
embrace any means whatsoever that will augment the wealth and power of
his own narrow, undemocratic, elitist clique. Dissent is not
Does the death of Senator Paul Wellstone reflect the opportunity to stifle dissent? The people loved Wellstone and they wanted to keep his voice alive.
The murder of Paul Wellstone backfired because his death caused people
to examine his legacy. A reporter for the St. Paul Pioneer Press said
they had never had so many people covering a death. Not even that of
Hubert H Humphrey. He touched so many people. Even his political
opponents in the Senate openly praised his passion and his character.
He is remembered as being a good man.
The impact he had on people around the country and especially
Minnesota was a guarantee that the people would elect Walter Mondale,
to carry forward Paul Wellstone's worthy legacy. Even the Secretary
General of the U.N. issued a statement, about the loss that the death
of Senator Paul Wellstone entailed. That is not very common.
The only thing that can alleviate the grief that the loss of a beloved
politician produces, is the assurance that his death was not in vain
and that his legacy will not extinguish. That is what caused the
elation over the emergence of Senator Walter Mondale. If Walter
Mondale was granted the opportunity to be Paul Wellstone's voice, the
Senator from Minnesota would receive the political icon status he
deserved, and that is the information that every exit poll in the
country, was supposed to bury.
One might say, paraphrasing Oscar Wilde, that to lose one election,
despite the exit polls is a misfortune, but to lose two the same way,
is positively suspicious. Karl Rove may be all strategy, but this
selection business is beginning to be a bore.
If we know who voted for who and why, we know which votes WERE NOT
Election 2002: Exit Polls
Question: Why did Minnesotans vote in record numbers?
Answer:They wanted to honor the memory of Paul Wellstone.
Question: Why did Coleman win?
Answer: Because the ballots were counted in the middle of the night, by hand
[one for you, two for me] when everybody was either yawning or
By the way, the enthusiasm to elect Mondale in memory of Wellstone
exceeded any 'stupid whiners' backlask by 10-1.
Is CNN trying to manufacture the news?
"The crews on the ground found two large sections of plane. The tail
section was intact. The weather DID NOT have anything to do with the
crash," said the on the scene reporter."
Wolf Blitzer tried to correct her.
He said, "The plane was flying into the storm of freezing rain,
"There is no evidence that weather had anything to do with the crash."
The on-the-scene reporter stuck to her guns.
And after Wellstone was murdered and his murder was covered up by the
false claim that the weather was responsible, Walter Mondale was
slated to foil the original plot, until the politics of election 2000
were hastily exported.
Clearly, Senator Walter Mondale would be representing Minnesota today,
and just one of the many tactics that were deployed in Florida, were
more than adequate to steal the election. Remember the butterfly
ballot? This is what reuters had to say about that:
"Palm Beach County's controversial "butterfly" ballots cost then
vice-president Al Gore about 6,600 votes in the country, more than
enough to have given him the presidential election, a newspaper
reported yesterday. A review of 19,125 discarded ballots on which a
voter punched holes for more than one candidate found that about 6,600
Beach voters invalidated their ballots by punching holes for Mr. Gore
and another candidate." Reuters
Welcome to 1984. Congressman Bob Barr is finally correct, we are
living George Orwell's 1984, and nobody has ever called Bob Barr a
The fact that Wellstone was murdered cannot be covered up. It can
certainly be denied by the politically motivated wackos who post
messages on the Internet, 24/7, in order to discredit the obvious.
They typically post crap like, Wellstone conspiracy theories are "the
work of people with a grade-school knowledge of airplanes and little
understanding of the dynamics of crashes." But we know who the people
who post this crap are.
The Bush administration has mobilized ring-knocking masters of deceit
like Poindexter, and the plans of these serial criminals are clearly
more scandalous than Iran-contra. The crimes of politically motivated
wackos are serial in nature, and the only thing that you can count on
is the fact that they routinely abuse their power. Poindexter
currently heads the "Information Awareness Office" in the otherwise
excellent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which spawned the
Internet and stealth aircraft technology and is now realizing his
20-year dream: getting the "data-mining" power to snoop on every
public and private act of every American. And despite Poindexter's
Ministry of Propaganda, we can safely conclude that the murder of Paul
Wellstone was not "the work of people with a grade-school knowledge of
airplanes and little understanding of the dynamics of crashes." Maybe
Poindexter is in a position to put faces on the people who are
responsible for the murder of Senator Paul Wellstone.
