  • US Election Shocker: Is This How The Vote Will Be Rigged?

    SGT Report ^ | August 2, 2016 | Jon Rappoport
    Votes are being counted as fractions instead of as whole numbers. As we know, there are a number of ways to rig an election. Bev Harris, at, is exploring a specific “cheat sheet” that has vast implications for the Trump vs. Hillary contest. It’s a vote-counting system called GEMS. I urge you to dive into her multi-part series, Fraction Magic (Part-1 here). Here are key Harris quotes. They’re all shockers: “Our testing [of GEMS] shows that one vote can be counted 25 times, another only one one-thousandth of a time, effectively converting some votes to zero.” “This report summarizes...

    Just a thought experiment.... For the last several days we have been treated to a discussion on all the "News" channels, about a "brokered convention". What it is, how it works, and what the rules would be. Now, bear in mind that these discussions have been pointed at the Republican Convention as a method to keep Trump from getting the nomination. But folks, put your thinking caps on. If Trump garners enough delegates through the primary process, he will be the nominee. Period, end of story. At this date, he looks poised to do just that, and barring some calamity,...

    He's never won a major live poker tournament. He's second to last in chips to start the final table. He's too quiet to become the leading poker ambassador. No player from Sweden has ever won this tournament. Those were all rumblings heard throughout the poker world about Martin Jacobson in the months leading up to the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event final table. When it was all said and done, though, the man from Sweden proved to be the last player standing, topping poker's greatest event to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and the massive $10 million...

    Okay, the Russians have invaded Ukraine, Obama is probably playing golf, another few hundred "uninvited guests" have arrived at our Southern border, and Germany and Argentina are gearing up for The World Cup Final. My big concern, however, is finding the BEST recipe for my new 1.5 quart ice cream maker.

It's also the most sense out of The Ninth Circuit that I've ever seen. By California Lawyer | Friday, January 24, 2014 at 4:23 pm What First Amendment protections are afforded a blogger sued for defamation? This was the question presented recently in a case just decided in the most liberal appellate court jurisdiction in the USA, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The issue was one of...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) May 20 - U.S. authorities brought criminal charges against three New York University researchers on Monday, alleging they conspired to take bribes from Chinese medical and research outfits for details about NYU research into magnetic resonance imaging technology. A criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan charged Yudong Zhu, 44, Xing Yang, 31, and Ye Li, 31, with commercial bribery in connection with NYU research financed by the U.S. government. Federal prosecutors and the FBI said the three conspired to receive payments from a Chinese medical imaging company, United Imaging Healthcare, and a research...

    For years I have used a plain Jane set of earmuffs when target shooting, but it's time to step up to the newfangled electronic type. 60 year old ears deserve some pampering. That said, I was hoping that you good folks had some advice, recommendations, or warnings. You guys are the best at this sort of thing.

    So I'm thinking about buying a Barrett .50 cal. rifle. I was hoping that several of my Freeper friends could advise me as to the pros and cons of the various models. This is for light target shooting only. I'm not a hunter or sniper. Just a fellow that likes to hang out with the guys and do some plinking. I have a fairly wide verity of rifles and handguns and I think it would be a kick to pull this out.I've never had the chance to pull the trigger on one of these, so if you have any experience...

    October 06, 2004 DETERRENCE (part 1) Watching the Presidential debates of October 1st, and the subsequent reactions to them, has left me once again with the sad realization that there are many millions of people who prefer a man who says the wrong things well over one who says the right things badly – and in the case of the first debates we are talking about saying very, very stupid things well and intelligent things very, very badly. Now I don’t mean stupid in a bad way. I fully credit John Kerry with the intelligence needed to analyze, dissect, and...

    NEW MATH Here’s a math quiz for you: During the 30-odd years he was in power, Saddam Hussein murdered at least 300,000 of his own people. These are the ones we are finding in mass graves in Iraq. Another 300,000 – at least – were killed in his war with Iran and his two conflicts with the US. Those are bare-bones, undeniable, non-speculative, minimums. That darling arithmetic works out to no less than 20,000 people a year killed by that lunatic, or about 1,700 people a month. So how many innocent people have not died as a result of the...

    First, I've been registered here for 4 or 5 years. I've made one post, but I reply a fair amount. This is my first vanity. Probably my last.Several years ago there was a bestselling book titled, "The Bible Code". It was the story of an Israeli math genius that uncovered a "code" imbedded in the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah. Using this code, one could find references to contemporaneous events with remarkable accuracy. I read the book when it came out and was impressed, but never saw anything about it in the media. I'm...

I recently read a troubling report issued this past April by the Virginia Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights entitled Unequal Justice: African-Americans in the Virginia Criminal Justice System. The report summarizes two days of "fact-finding" and community comment sessions held in Hampton and Newport News in March, 1997. The Virginia Advisory Committee, composed of prominent civil rights activists, reported allegations, attributed to individual presenters, that African-Americans do not receive equal treatment in the Virginia criminal justice system and ...

    July 6, 2000 By Jerry Seper THE WASHINGTON TIMES A top Justice Department official described as a Democratic Party loyalist twice recommended in 1998 that an independent counsel be named to investigate whether Vice President Al Gore lied about his campaign-finance activities. Robert S. Litt, who serves as the department's principal associate deputy attorney general, said in September and November 1998 memos that he was "not persuaded" that Mr. Gore had not lied to FBI agents in denying that he illegally solicited "hard money" donations for the Democratic National Committee. "One could infer that Gore knew what he claimed he ...
