Ohio Confronts Elder-Fraud 

Leave a comment

October 18, 2019 —For immediate release.

Steubenville, Ohio

Team Reporting from www.stopprobatefraud.com

 

Facing the glare of the elder-fraud spotlight, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (left) is sending his top experts to address the problem in a  Steubenville public forum.

Titled “Protecting the Unprotected” the forum will be held from 12:30  pm to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Towers Building, 500 Market Street, in the 2nd floor conference room.

Ohio has battled elder-fraud for years, and the state is again in the hot-seat due to a racketeering case brought by Dr. Mehdi Saghafi from Cleveland. A racket is a crime at both state and federal levels and can be spotted when the those billing to “fix” or “manage” a  problem are the same people that caused the problem in the first place.

Dr. Saghafi’s claim is that his family was the victim of financial exploitation when his 80-year old wife was trapped in the legal maze of a court-ordered guardianship. The family claims that once  “captured” in the court system, attorneys and accountants targeted the family’s assets and  billed the family hundreds of thousands of dollars for the ”care” of his wife.

Just months before that racketeering suit was allowed to proceed,  there was the FBI investigation of Ohio Judge Diane Vettori-Caraballo (shown   left). The judge was indicted and pled guilty to charges stemming from her theft of over $100,000 from an estate for which she was the court-appointed administrator. For more on that story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gD

Ohio is not alone in the fight against fraud. Weeks ago, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel fired four of her state’s probate administrators after complaints that the attorneys had used their court-power to drain the assets of estates they controlled. See this link for  details: https://wp.me/p9585T-fH

Over the summer, Florida’s probate system made national headlines when court-appointed guardian Rebecca Fierle (right) was accused of causing the death of a man who was in her care by issuing a “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) order—without informing or getting the consent of the man who was “not to be resuscitated.” For more on this fraud story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gt

Yost’s Steubenville event features nearly a dozen speakers including four with state-wide experience in elder-fraud investigation and prosecution: Sylvia Pla-Raith; Kevin Barbeau, CFE; Michael Kaizar, CPA CFE; Kelly Igoe, JD. The session offers residents of the region a place to meet and learn about the “red flags of fraud” from Ohio’s experts in elder financial fraud.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) calls fraud “theft by deceit,” and “theft with a smile and is prosecuted every day across the USA. But in cases where the “mark” or victim is an incapacitated and/or elderly person, the issues can expand from simple fraud into a RICO and civil rights cases.

“Many people don’t know that there are thousands of people in guardianships in Ohio,” says Rosanna Miller (shown right  with her father, Clair) who is a member of the advocacy group  “Ohio Coalition to End Probate Corruption” (OCEPC). The Ohio coalition is just one of nearly a dozen grass-roots groups across the United States who  fight guardianship and elder financial abuse including  NASGA,  AAAPG and VGPR.

New federal elder-care legislation (U.S. H.R. 4174) details that there are approximately 1.3 million elderly adults in the United States who have their lives controlled in a guardianship.  These vulnerable adults have amassed roughly 50 billion dollars in assets. These figures will get bigger with the aging of the “boomer” generation and the rise in life-expectancy.

The Steubenville forum is designed to help people learn how to spot and stop fraud from the best and brightest in the area of elder fraud prevention and prosecution. The speakers will detail the warning signs of elder financial exploitation and financial crimes and give attendees tools and strategies to assist victims of financial exploitation.

In addition to the state-level experts, there will be local Jefferson-County speakers as well, including Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla; Jefferson County Attorney Jane Hanlin; Marie Holt, Ericka Kirkpatrick and probate Judge Joseph Corabi.  The forum is designed to give people in the community a local contact when they need expertise in the elder financial fraud area. Q&A sessions are expected, time permitting.

The event is free but the room holds only 125 people. Please use this link to pre-register:

As Industry Pushes Billion-Dollar Fracked Petrochemical Projects, State Regulators Struggle To Keep Up

1 Comment

Source:  desmogblog

“Pollution from petrochemicals is already a major issue, Food and Water Watch noted in a report last year on the coming build-out. “In 1999, when Houston’s ozone levels were the highest in the nation, the state of Texas conducted several studies that found large industrial leaks,” that report found. “The worst originated from cracker plants producing ethylene and propylene.”

By Sharon Kelly

Fueled by fracking in the region, petrochemical and plastics projects in the Ohio River Valley are attracting tens of billions of dollars in investment, but as plans for this build-out hit the drawing boards, signs already are emerging that state regulators are unprepared for this next wave of industrialization. And the implications of their inexperience could mean major threats to the region’s health and environment.

One of the projects currently underway, an underground natural gas liquids (NLG) storage site — designed to support the construction of several huge petrochemical complexes — is undergoing review by state regulators who have little experience with NGL storage facilities of its size.

“We had to juggle a lot of regulatory input in a relatively undefined setting since there are few regulations in Ohio, and that really goes for Pennsylvania and West Virginia as well,” Jonathan Farrell, a project manager with Civil and Environmental Consultants, told attendees at a petrochemical industry conference on June 18.

That lack of well-established state regulations harkens back to the early days of the shale gas rush, when state regulators struggled to keep up with the emergence of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and horizontal drilling technologies. The rush to drill while safeguards were still being designed and implemented led to inadequately treated toxic waste being dumped into drinking water supplies for millions of people and problems with radioactive waste that continue to this day.

Dreams of a New Petrochemical Corridor

Today, the petrochemical industry is dreaming big about prospects for manufacturing plastics, styrofoam, vinyl, chemicals, and fertilizers from cheap ethane and other natural gas liquids from the Marcellus Shale — marketed as currently the cheapest in the world.

The goal? To build a new petrochemical corridor in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and the surrounding region, one second only in size to the Gulf Coast’s — and one that could bring along with it the public health and environmental impacts that have given rise to that region’s reputation as a “cancer alley.”

I think the magnitude of some of these projects that we’re talking about here are hard for a lot of us and a lot of our communities to wrap their head around,” Chad Riley, CEO of The Thrasher Group, an oil and gas field and pipeline services firm, said at the June 18-19 conference. “I really think that this region lacks a bit of an understanding about what the potential could be here.”

Fracking for Plastics

Shale drillers in the Marcellus and Utica have long talked up the potential profits to be made from drilling for “wet gas,” or wells that produce large volumes of natural gas liquids like ethane, propane, and butane. Those liquid fossil fuels offer additional sources of revenue, making the shale drilling industry better able to cope with depressed prices for natural gas, which is mostly methane, that the wells primarily produce.

For the shale industry, the need to create demand for those products is fueling the push to create new petrochemical and plastics plants that can buy up the liquids coming from fracked wells. The Appalachian region currently produces roughly a third of the domestic supply of NGLs, or roughly a million barrels a day.  Read the rest of this article HERE.

18 Little Known Facts About College Meningitis Vaccines

1 Comment

VAXXTER

By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM

Two weeks ago, I posted a blog article about the fraudulent letters being sent to parents in Ohio, and actually across the country, about a new meningitis vaccine said to be a requirement for school. If you missed it, you can read it here.

As middle schools are trying to strong arm parents into vaccinating their pre-teens without giving them information on their right to refuse, colleges are becoming equally aggressive about forcing the meningitis jab – and other vaccines – prior to granting access to higher education.

About N. meningitis and the meningitis vaccines

While meningitis sounds frightening and the infection can be serious, here are 18 important, yet little-known, facts about the infection and about the meningitis vaccines you need to know:

  1. In the 10-year period between 1998-2007, only 2,262 cases of meningitis were reported in the United States. Within a population of more than 300 million, that number is negligible and not worth vaccinating millions for “protection.”
  2. Of the 2,262 cases, 11.3% cases were fatal. Not to minimize the loss of life, but that also means that nearly 89% of people survived and recovered.
  3. Meningitis does not spread rapidly. According to the Meningitis Research Foundation, the bacterium can only live for a few moments outside the human body, so it is not spread by casual contact and is not passed along on clothing, bedding, toys or dishes.
  4. In fact, the Foundation goes on to say the risk of the infection is very low and 97 out of 100 cases occur in isolation, with no other cases.

HIDING Public Records by the court – Our Right to Know

Leave a comment

 Rosanna Miller

Our Right to Know

PLEASE see attachment.. Notice – ALL ADULT Guardianships are removed from the online and in house public access records in the court of Logan County.* These are absolutely Public Records. (ORC 149.43) But when the GA gave total access for the courts to monitor what they deem public records in 2011 they opened up the door for them to HIDE public records. This is SELF-SERVING to let the court monitor itself. This is public records being buried. How is any attorney going to be able to work for their clients in that county given we are living in the computer age?

I fought for our public records** and it resulted in my disabled mentally impaired Dad being abused in filth, hording, cat feces, exploited and then incarcerated in a place he did NOT want to be and drugged to death.*** Now the court is trying to steal my parents TRUST that probate has NO authority in and I can’t get any public attention on this abomination. This is a repulsive system and does not represent the free country many have died for. Why have the conditions of guardianships and robbing estates escalated downward since the series of probate abuse stories the Columbus dispatch reported on in 2014? Why are there more and more stories reported across the country and things get worse? Have we come to the point human life is worthless?

If these adult guardianship cases were public for decades what changed? Personal identifiers were already redacted. And how can you remove what was already out there? Isn’t that a POST FACTO decision? We pay taxes for gov’t employees to keep our records in any media form that exists today. What other counties are CLOSING down record access?

ACTION ALERT: MEDIA NEEDED TO COVER PSYCHIATRIC ABUSE TRIAL IN OHIO

1 Comment

new-logo25Media is encouraged to contact Katherine Hine for further information on the August 9th hearing: katherinehine@wljaradio.net or 614-633-0215

 Activists are seeking the presence of a member of the alternative media at a crucial hearing in the Ross County Courthouse in Chillicothe, Ohio August 9, 9 a.m. – ???. In light of the fact the Murphy bill [“Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis”] was sent to the U.S. Senate a couple of weeks ago, citizens may be interested in how an average young person with a mental illness label fares at the hands of local courts already having the power to keep him locked up for life.  The outcome of the John Rohrer case coming to trial on August 9 in southern Ohio promises to shed light on what taxpayers can expect more of in the future should the Murphy bill pass.

For several years now, the alternative media has been covering the Rohrer matter and the massive amount of litigation it has generated. Rohrer, a 36 year old writer and composer, is well into his 7th  year of psychiatric lockup for an assault he committed in 2009 on a man who had been groping him. Prior to the assault a government psychiatrist had been prescribing him many of the violence associated pharmaceuticals that Moore and Glenmullen identified as such in their 2011 Harvard study. In 2014, following 3 days of trial and a two month wait for a decision, Rohrer’s legal team was finally able to get him free from forced drugging. Today, although the records from the state lockup facility declare him “asymptomatic”, it seems that at some $2400+ per day of Medicaid/Medicare billing, Ohio’s mental illness system does not want to turn him loose. The Murphy bill promises to make forced psychiatry even more federally incentivized than it already is – and harder than ever to escape from. Bob Fitrakis of the Columbus Free Press is one of John’s trial attorneys. Several international organizations have filed amicus curiae briefs in the trial court. Other than the extreme legal effort that has been put into the legal efforts to free John Rohrer his case is typical of the due process rights violations common to “mental health” proceedings- even for those who have never done anything remotely violent. Here are some links to news articles and one recent interview featuring some of the litigation that the Rohrer cases have generated:

The Real Deal interview with James Fetzer

There is also a press release posted a few months ago about the pending perjury accusations against the state’s attorney and two of his witnesses for statements they made during the 2014 proceedings in the Rohrer confinement case:

ANIMAL DISEASE TRACEABILITY final USDA rules for livestock moving interstate.

EYE WITNESS REPORT October 29, Sugar Creek, Ohio ANIMAL DISEASE TRACEABILITY final USDA rules for livestock moving interstate.

Yoder, Apple Creek, Ohio, on the left. Veterinarians, state staff and ranchers were in attendance.

The Ohio State Veterinarian, Tony M. Forshey, officiated an ADT rule — cattle requirements overview meeting with producers on Oct 29. This was one of about a dozen in Ohio and similar to a few cow-smiling-e1270815298540hundred held in most states.

My appreciation of Dr. Forshey was increased as I watched him carefully articulate the maze of complicated and difficult federal rules for state veterinarians and animal producers. The tight rope he had to walk being forced to enforce federal rules and yet having “state rights” to tweak certain parts of the rule making process — his assistant called it “ability to relax” federal ADT rules.

If the Affordable Care Act is confusing, the facial expressions of Ohio farmers attending told the story. One major veal producer, RC Farms, said “I am not going to do it!” No reply was offered by Dr. Forshey as to the enforcements, fines or penalties for future non-compliance. (I sensed he did not want to go there in this crowd.)

New ADT changes and procedures defined include:

~ There are federal rules of ADT that are enforced federally and there are ways a state veterinarian can increase enforcements or “relax” these rules. Although the feds have a solid rule process, states can and may or may not relax or add to these rules. The state veterinarian has that authority. More

 Ohio’s Love Canal: Toxic Pol­lu­tion Dump­ing on a Scale of BP-Gulf Spill

By David Michael

 

Human ill­nesses and ani­mal deaths have occurred recently from neu­ro­tox­ins secreted by a heavy slime of blue and green algae float­ing on Ohio’s largest lake—Grand Lake St. Mary’s (Grand Lake) in Auglaize County. This is a lake that has been dete­ri­o­rat­ing for decades, but espe­cially so in the past 10 years as fac­tory farms have sprung up all over the area, and more are being built.

A high con­cen­tra­tion of fac­tory farms and the appli­ca­tion of com­posted manure from CAFO (con­fined ani­mal feed­ing oper­a­tions) manure and sewage treat­ment sludge (huma­nure, now called biosolids—a mix­ture of con­cen­trated human excre­ment and indus­trial dis­charges) is spread­ing toxic and infec­tious sub­stances on farm­lands close by and in the water­shed.  CAFOs in the water­shed area account for 3 mil­lion chick­ens; while sewage sludge spread­ing is per­mit­ted on 8800 Ohio farmlands—several close to the edge of Grand Lake.

    vaccs_deesA fabulous new acquaintance brought this to my attention – the Void for Vagueness Doctrine.

    Those who take the time to look at their state’s Model State Emergency Health Powers Act laws (MSEHPA), will likely find what I found in Ohio. If your state is on this list: Pandemic Influenza Funding , your state passed the laws required to make them eligible for that federal funding.

    If you can’t locate the primary legislation that was passed to qualify for these funds, look for a lot of new or changed public health statutes with the same Effective Date. Then review legislation that was passed 0-6 months prior to that date. Then you can locate the bill (and statutes) that were passed to qualify your state – very likely these are most Draconian as well.

    Ohio: Issue # 2 creates unlimited, uncontolled power to Livestock Care Standards Board

    Leave a comment

    IMG_0003We agree with and support the premise of issue 2 but not as a constitutional amendment.

    The same objective to thwart PETA and HSUS could have been accomplished by including the key words “agricultural best management practices for such care and well-being” in section 900 of the Ohio Revised Code. This we do support.

    Our problem with this constitutional amendment is the excessive power it places in the hands of a 13-member group of non-elected bureaucrats. This constitutional amendment places in the Board’s hands the power to mandate whatever they choose, and it is the Department of Ag that will implement and enforce those decisions of the Board. (see the text of proposed amendment at  The text of the amendment includes “consider factors that include, but are not limited to,” which gives the Board authority far beyond the scope of its stated purpose. In the text “agricultural best management practices for such care and well-being” is the part that will thwart HSUS and their cronies. “Biosecurity,” “disease prevention,” “animal morbidity and mortality data,” “food safety practices,” and “the protection of local, affordable food supplies” are already covered in Ohio Revised Code.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    T046942A Ohio Issue 2: Cementing Corporate Agribusiness

     Issue 2 on the November ballot is an industry attempt to change the Ohio state constitution, establishing a “Livestock Care Standards Board” that would have unchecked power to establish standards for livestock and poultry. Technically the product of the Ohio General Assembly, the ballot issue is heavily backed by groups representing major agribusiness interests, including the Ohio Farm Bureau and The Ohio Pork Producers Council.

    While masquerading as an attempt to improve food safety and animal welfare, Issue 2 in reality is an attempt by big industry to preempt statewide initiatives like the recent Proposition 2 in California,2 which phased out problematic animal production practices like battery cages for chickens. In effect, the proposed Livestock Care Standards Board would give a dozen political appointees broad and unchecked power to decide rules on animal welfare, potentially reshaping regulations on how animals are raised, tracked or traced.  READ

    The Creation of a “quarantinable” Influenza Pandemic and Ohio’s Contribution

    What is behind the swine flu “pandemic”, which appeared to come out of nowhere last April?

    The Pandemic Pyramid
    aka The Creation of a “quarantinable” Influenza Pandemic and Ohio’s Contribution  

    The definition of a conspiracy: ”any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.”
    The difference between a conspiracy “theory” and a conspiracy is . . . overwhelming documentation.

    After 9-11 the Center for Disease Control (CDC), a huge U.S. government bureaucracy, began promoting health legislation throughout the country called the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act. Many states passed MSEHPA Acts. Ohio did not. However, Ohio legislators passed new laws that implement many of the policies MSEHPA was promoting. The Pandemic Pyramid diagram documents the construction of a huge machine that was designed to coordinate Ohio with the CDC – in compliance with the World Health Organization (WHO). This program has been constructed more or less under the radar of the majority of Ohioans. It includes vaguely defined (and unconstitutional) justifications for quarantine and or isolation during a “pandemic”. As Ohio is not a party to any agreements that former President George Bush signed in 2005,  (the International Partnership on Avian and Pandemic Influenza) it is important that we understand WHO rules do not apply to Ohioans or the Ohio Department of Health.

    Currently the ongoing “pandemic” responses are based on a  lie: the WHO’s Level 6 Pandemic. Therefore, all actions initiated under the “pandemic” umbrella – are acts of deception and or corruption. All parties involved (even the local health districts that are now implementing the School-Located Vaccination programs for the CDC) had an obligation to the public to examine WHO’s Level 6 Pandemic declaration and ask questions – even simple ones like: what specific statistics were used to justify the declaration of a Level 6 worldwide “pandemic”? Fortunately Professor Chossudovsky, Editor of Global Research.CA, did exactly that and reported his findings on August 25, 2009. Manipulating the Data to Justify a Worldwide Public Health Emergency.

    Because public health officials did absolutely no due diligence, we are now facing a complete erosion of trust in our public health agencies that have been given the responsibility for implementing a mass vaccination program AND instituting a “pandemic” influenza quarantine – if “they” determine conditions meet “their” vague criteria.

    Public Trust: “The concept of the public trust relates back to the origins of democratic government and its seminal idea that within the public lies the true power and future of a society; therefore, whatever trust the public places in its officials must be respected. One of the reasons that bribery is regarded as a notorious evil is that it contributes to a culture of corruption in which the public trust is eroded.”

    Ohians need to FAX [I’ve been told legislators and government officials have to keep faxes on file] a letter to their state Senators and Representatives (sample letter) reminding them that “Ohio, a sovereign state, is not a party to any international agreements former President Bush entered into. Therefore any governmental actions that are executed in Ohio (as a response to a fallacious “pandemic”) that harm anyone living in Ohio or deprive any Ohioan of their rights and/or property, which are protected by the Ohio Constitution, will be nothing less than willfull misconduct.”

    Please take action, complete the sample letter and FAX it out . . . ASAP

    NO to unchecked power and new layers of unaccountable bureaucracy over our livestock farmers

    NO to a new board acting as judge, jury and executioner of all animal agriculture policies in Ohio

    NO to expanded state government

    NO to an appointed board of political cronies who could radically shift livestock standards in any direction

    NO to giveaways for factory farms in the Ohio constitution  

    Don’t allow special interests to hijack the state constitution: Vote NO on ISSUE 2

    WTF? OHIO! Vaccination Indoctri-nation Part 1

    Ohioans Against Experimental and School Vaccination

    In the WTF?! catagory has to be this postcard sent out to Ohio residents to promote the deadly vaccination program against the pandemic that isn’t.  All that is required is to first create a crisis, even if there is none: scare the public into compliance: and if they resist start using familiar images to “condition” them into thinking and believing they are doing the right thing by complying.  This is so sick, so insidious even I can’t believe it.  What demented person came up with this image?  Whomever you are, take your shot please,  and mine too…..AICCO (2)

    To see just how sick this really is, go to the website listed and note that the same companies who stand to profit the most from forcing this vaccine on the public are listed as co-sponsors of this campaign.  This is another of those public/private partnerships, (PPP’s) generated out of the UN that side step the law.

    Here’s the back side of this same card:

    Greediest Corporate Agribusiness Move We’ve Ever Seen!

    The Greediest Corporate Agribusiness Move We’ve Ever Seen!
    Help us defeat Issue 2 and the corporate takeover in Ohio
     

    October 1, 2009 
     
    In the most ambitious power grab we’ve ever seen, corporate agribusiness proponents are trying to write themselves into the Ohio constitution.  Technically the product of the Ohio General Assembly, the ballot issue is heavily backed by groups representing major agribusiness interests, including the Ohio Farm Bureau, the Ohio Pork Producers Council, and the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association. While masquerading as an attempt to improve food safety and animal welfare, Issue 2 would give a board of political appointees unchecked power to decide any and all regulations related to animal agriculture. The board could make decisions that would radically shift policy in any direction and would not require any public input process. This could include decisions on issues like the use of antibiotics and growth hormones, genetically engineered animals, cloned animals, animal ID and traceability, and factory farm zoning reguations.
    Thanks for taking action,

    The proponents of Issue 2 literally will be the foxes guarding the henhouse if Issue 2 passes, and they’re running a multi-million dollar campaign to make sure this happens.  Worse yet, their slick campaign tries to trick voters into thinking that Issue 2 will support safe, local food from small farmers.  We need you to help us get the truth out about Issue 2 and stop this greedy power grab in the Ohio Constitution.  Help us spread the word about Issue 2 and Vote NO on November 3rd!

     

     

    We need your help to stop factory farms from being written into the Ohio constitution.

    Ohio could become the first state to have corporate agribusiness acting as judge, jury and executioner for all animal agriculture rules and regulations.  Who do you think their rules will favor?  Safe, local, sustainable agriculture, or the more than 200 factory farms already in the state?  We’re hoping not to find out.  That’s why Food & Water Watch is working on behalf of our 5,000 Ohio supporters to Oppose Issue 2.  Can you help us defeat Issue 2 in Ohio?

     

    Food & Water Watch is a nonprofit consumer organization that works to ensure clean water and safe food. We challenge the corporate control and abuse of our food and water resources by empowering people to take action and by transforming the public consciousness about what we eat and drink.

     

    Supreme Court lays the groundwork for Republican’s

    Leave a comment

    In what was widely reported as a “shocking” ruling by the United States Supreme Court, the Supremes declared a lower court’s ruling as illegal, halting any forced attempts by the Ohio GOP to challenge the handling of voter registrations.  The Republicans were demanding that all voter registrations be compared to Department of Motor Vehicle car registrations and any voter not registered there……well, too bad.  Which is all well and good if you own a car and have a license. 

    The first flag that should have gone up on this issue was just how fast the Ohio Gop got this in front of the Supreme Court.  Any other case would have taken months if not years.

    The second, and most important flag was the ruling against the GOP in Ohio.  This allowed the Secretary of State in Ohio to cease any efforts to compare voter registration with DMV records.  The fact is, she is continuing her efforts to verify new voters, and many old ones. 

    What you need to be asking yourself here, is why would the Supreme Court rule on this case with the speed of lightening when they are known to take millenium to address any other case, and why would they rule against the party they are known to favor?

    It would appear that the Supremes were helping to lay the groundwork for the contesting of the presidential election.  By refusing to uphold the lower court ruling, and in fact reversing it, the court and the GOP assumed the Secretry of State would end all verification activities.  Once the election took place, if Obama won, they had the legal grounds to contest the vote on the basis of possible fraud backed up by the failure of the S.O.S. to verify the registrations under new rules.  Having already gone as far as the Supreme Court, the GOP has engaged the Court in advance for future interference in the election.

    If MCCain wins Ohio…you won’t hear a peep out of them.  Not as though that is likely.  This is one of the same states where the GOP has attempted to disenfranchise voters whose homes have gone into foreclosure.  Why having your home foreclosed upon should preclude you from voting is a response to the public holding Republicans primarily responsible for the financial mess we are in, including the sub-prime mortgage fiasco which netted many of their good friends a fortune.  We can’t have people voting who have been victimized by the corrupt and greedy who were enabled by their Republican cronies over the last eight years.  And in Ohio, a large number of foreclosures have occured and continue to occur.  Not good news for the GOP.

    In what has to be one of the more transparent rulings of the Supreme Court, the striking down of the lower court ruling was done to facilitate the contesting of the election results.  The GOP will fall back on both court rulings, claiming voter fraud and will sue to prevent the election results from being finalized. 

    I find it absolutely mind blowing that the same political party that paid to have voting machines rigged and hacked in every state, who stormed Florida and demanded that the recount be stopped in 2000, the same party that cheated at every turn and at every opportunity; the same party that was responsible for using felon roles from Texas to cage votes in Florida is now crying foul! 

    We are looking at Florida all over again, only this time the GOP had to rely on the Supreme Court as Jeb Bush and Kathryn Harris were not available to rig another state election in favor of Republicans.  In Ohio, former S.O.S. Blackwell is not available to do their dirty work there; not that it matters to him, he was promoted and relocated for his efforts on behalf of the GOP. 

    This ruling by the Supreme Court was nothing more than the groundwork needed to contest the presidential election.
