The 2000 election was rigged before the first vote was cast.
These videos and other information posted on this page exposes how the 2000 election was rigged and proves that George W Bush was an illegitimate President who was not elected by the people of the United States.
Jeb Bush was the Republican Governor of the State of Florida and brother of the Republican Presidential candidate George W. Bush.
Republican Secretary of State, Katherine Harris was also co-chair of Bush’s Florida campaign, clearly a conflict of interest in conducting a fair and impartial election.
Jeb Bush promised to “Deliver Florida” to his brother as reported in numerous newspaper articles.
Secretary of State, Katherine Harris and Governor Jeb Bush had the motive and the means to make sure Florida’s decisive electoral votes were “delivered” to George W. Bush.
They accomplished this by illegally purging thousands of black voters off of the Florida voter rolls, ensuring an unfair advantage to George W. Bush, as shown in the above video.
Antonin Scalia and his conservative majority of 5 “justices” subverted democracy & engaged in partisan politics by stopping the 2000 election vote count. The above video explains the shocking details.
This caused George W. Bush to be installed as President. At the time the votes were stopped by the Supreme Court, there were only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush.
According to Wikipedia, “Harris’s purge of voters in Florida removed both ineligible and eligible voters. Harris, along with state division of elections director Clay Roberts, and Governor Jeb Bush used an inaccurate ineligible-voter list that eliminated a disproportionate number of eligible African Americans from Florida voter rolls”.
According to Rolling Stone, “12,000 eligible voters – a number twenty-two times larger than George W. Bush’s 537 vote triumph over Al Gore – were wrongly identified as convicted felons and purged from the voting rolls in Florida, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. African Americans, who favored Gore over Bush by 86 points, accounted for 11 percent of the state’s electorate but 41 percent of those purged.” [Rolling Stone, 5/30/12]
The illegal voter purge violated thousands of voters civil rights, altered the results of an entire election, violated the will of the American people and resulted in George W. Bush wrongfully being awarded Florida’s 25 electoral votes and the presidency by a mere 537 votes.
If all of the illegally disqualified voters had been allowed to vote and all votes counted, the total votes would have decisively shown Al Gore to be the winner of the State of Florida and therefore the Presidency.
If Gore had been president, we would have had a Liberal Supreme Court because Bush appointed 2 justices.
It was Jeb Bush’s illegal voter purge and Antonin Scalia who subverted Democracy by not allowing the votes to be counted that caused the installation of George W. Bush and the US to have a conservative majority in the Supreme Court.
Let’s not forget that Al Gore received 600,000 more votes than George W. Bush. Al Gore was the majority of American’s choice for president so Democracy was violated.
The rigged election of George W. Bush caused the following events;
Installation of George W. Bush, a illegitimate president who was not elected to office by the American people
False claims about Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify the War against Iraq
Unprovoked, Unjustified War and Invasion of Iraq
Deaths of 4,475 US Troops
32,331 US Troops wounded
Deaths of over 112,000 Iraqi Civilians
Debt of 10 Trillion dollars due to tax cuts and unpaid for wars
Firing of US Attorneys for political reasons
Appointment of Conservative Supreme Court Judges who destroyed the voting rights act of 1965
The creation of ISIS due to the invasion of Iraq, be-headings and people being burned alive
And much more…
None of these things would have happened were it not for the Jeb Bush Administration actions which helped brother George W. Bush to be installed as president.
According to the Brennan Center for Justice “Florida registrants were purged from the rolls if 80 percent of the letters of their last names were the same as those of persons with criminal convictions. Those wrongly purged included Reverend Willie D. Whiting Jr., who, under the matching criteria, was considered the same person as Willie J. Whiting. Without specific guidelines for or limitations on the authority of election officials conducting purges, eligible voters are regularly made unnecessarily vulnerable”.
As shown in the “2000 Election Rigged for Bush” video, ChoicePoint / DBT was given a $4 million no-bid contract under the Jeb Bush administration which wrongly and illegally purged thousands of African Americans from the Florida voter rolls.
Jame Lee, Vice President of Choicepoint / DBT testified to a panel called by US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney that the State of Florida Division of Elections stated it only wanted 80% accuracy on the list. In other words, to be identified as a convicted felon, one only need to have a similar name to that as someone listed on a Texas convicted felon’s list.
You can view the testimony in a documentary called American Blackout (around 12 minutes into the film). As it turned out, almost everyone on the Florida purged voters list had the right to vote.
According to Lance deHaven-Smith, in his book entitled The Battle for Florida…
“Top Republicans used the powers of their offices to inject partisanship and instill fear down through the ranks of the state bureaucracy. In 1998 political operatives working for the Speaker of the house secretly examined voter registration records to learn the party affiliations of specific state employees and to identify agencies with high concentrations of Democrats.
After it was determined that the most Democratic agency in the state government was the Florida Department of education, the department was restructured and the positions of many of its employees were eliminated. Florida law forbids any consideration of partisan orientations in state hiring, firing, and contracting, but it fails to contemplate the more sinister possibility that highly partisan elected officials might purge the state bureaucracy indirectly by reorganization and privatization.”
According to hermes-press.com, “No sooner had he taken the oath of office than Jeb Bush began ferreting out and replacing Democrats throughout Florida state government, his first purge of Democratic voters.
Jeb and his cohorts let special interests know that they expected political donations of $2 for every $1 donated to Democrats or defaulters would lose access to the governor and the legislative leadership.
On Election Day 2000, rich white Republican voters stood in short lines and used up-to-date equipment, including electronic machines that let them correct their ballots.
African-American Voters Blocked from Reaching Polling Places by Police Roadblocks
Things were different in black districts. Some voters were flagged down at roadblocks, where highway patrol officers checked their drivers’ licenses. (Click here for more details)
Others waited in long lines for an inadequate number of booths and ancient recording equipment. All too often, innocent citizens whose names appeared on the ex-felons list were informed for the first time that they could not vote when they showed up at the polling place.
Some votes were simply trashed by ballot handlers. In Duval County, 27,000 ballots were discarded, over half of them from black precincts in Jacksonville. No official challenges were filed within the 72-hour time limit, so thousands of mostly Democratic votes were lost. Sixteen-thousand votes for Gore disappeared overnight from the ongoing Volusia County tally and were reinstated only when an election supervisor questioned the subtraction of already registered votes. No voting machine company representative or election official was able to explain what happened.
Greg Palast, an award-winning American reporter based in England, broke the story of the scrub list and documented its sleazy origins in The Observer, London, November 26, 2000. Updates, as well as each edition of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy have added irrefutable, hard evidence of fraud. (Palast’s most recent estimate of all qualified Florida voters barred from casting a ballot in Election 2000 stands at 90,000.)
The story was big in Europe, but the American press ignored it completely. Massive civil rights violations that subverted an election just didn’t resonate with the mainstream press. On January 10, 2001, lawyers acting for the NAACP sued and won their case against ChoicePoint’s DBT, Secretary of State Katherine Harris (who coincidentally was enthusiastically co-chairing the Bush campaign), and Bush loyalist Clay Roberts, Director of the Division of Elections. In July 2002, to atone for its staggering error rate of 95%, DBT agreed to remove innocent voters from the now infamous list of purported ex-felons. (In 2002, the purge list hadn’t been corrected. In 2004, another suspicious list appeared. (end quote from hermes-press.com)
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights 2000 Election Investigation Recommended that the U.S. Department of Justice should “immediately initiate the litigation process against the governor” (Jeb Bush)
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted an extensive public investigation of allegations of voting irregularities during the 2000 presidential election in Florida. To follow is some of the text from the report at http://www.usccr.gov/pubs/vote2000/report/ch9.htm
“Voting Irregularities in Florida During the 2000 Presidential Election”
“The investigation, utilizing the Commission’s subpoena power, included three days of hearings, more than 30 hours of testimony, 100 witnesses, and a systematic review of more than 118,000 pages of pertinent documents
Responsibility Without Accountability
Florida’s governor is the state’s chief executive officer who “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Florida’s secretary of state is the chief election officer and oversees the Division of Elections. Each county has an elected supervisor of elections, except one. Together, the secretary of state and the county supervisors of elections preside over Florida’s elections.
Governor John Ellis Bush
When asked about his responsibilities to ensure the election laws of Florida were faithfully executed during the November 2000 election, Governor Bush testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that he had no real legal authority over election matters except for certifying the election and serving as a member of the state canvassing board. He indicated that he recused himself from participating on the state canvassing board because his brother was one of the presidential candidates. Governor Bush testified that “governors have the moral authority . . . to make sure that the laws, not only the state laws, but . . . also federal laws are upheld. . . .” When asked what authority and responsibility he had regarding preparation for the 2000 presidential election, Governor Bush testified that he had none and that “the secretary of state and the 67 supervisors of elections were responsible for that, and they carried out their duties.”
Under the Florida Constitution, the governor is charged with ensuring that “the laws be faithfully executed,” a responsibility Governor Bush apparently delegated to others with respect to elections. Under Florida election law, the governor is also specifically empowered to “appoint special officers to investigate alleged violations of the election laws . . .” Governor Bush testified that he had not appointed any officers to do any investigation of alleged irregularities surrounding the November 2000 election but would “if there was a reason to do so.” As of the date of this report there is no indication that the governor has exercised this authority by appointing special officers to investigate the widespread allegations of violations of the Florida election law”.
Despite the closeness of the election, it was widespread voter disenfranchisement, not the dead-heat contest, that was the extraordinary feature in the Florida election.
Disenfranchisement of Florida voters fell most harshly on the shoulders of African Americans. Statewide, based on county-level statistical estimates, African American voters were nearly 10 times more likely than white voters to have their ballots rejected in the November 2000 election.
The U.S. Department of Justice should immediately initiate the litigation process against the governor, secretary of state, director of the Division of Elections, specific supervisors of elections, and other state and local officials responsible for the execution of election laws, practices, and procedures, regarding their contributions, if any, to the extraordinary racial disparity in the rate that votes were rejected, through their actions or failure to act before and during the 2000 presidential election, in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended. Appropriate enforcement action should be initiated to ensure full compliance with the election laws.
The Civil Rights Division in the Office of the Florida Attorney General should initiate the litigation process against state election officials who violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended, and/or Title IX of the Florida statutes through their actions or failure to act before, during, and after the November 2000 election. Based on the results of the investigation, appropriate enforcement action should be initiated to ensure full compliance with the election laws.
The U.S. Department of Justice and the Civil Rights Division in the Office of the Florida Attorney General should initiate the litigation process against all state election officials who through their actions or failure to act violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended, by not obtaining preclearance either from the federal district court of Washington, D.C., or the U.S. attorney general. Based on the results of the investigation, appropriate enforcement action should be initiated to ensure full compliance with the election laws”.

Florida Governor’s Office in Tallahassee Made 95 Telephone calls to the George W. Bush Presidential Campaign
According to an article published in the latimes.com; “the Florida governor’s office in Tallahassee made 95 telephone calls to the George W. Bush presidential campaign, its advisers, lawyers and staffers during the 36-day recount period, records show. At least 10 calls came from an office number used primarily by Jeb Bush, including one call to a private line in George W. Bush’s gubernatorial office in Austin.
Another call from Jeb Bush’s number went to Karl Rove, his brother’s campaign strategist. One went to the Texas governor’s chief of staff, Clay Johnson. Another went to Michigan Gov. John Engler, who soon flew to Florida to monitor the ballot recount in Broward County. Additional calls were logged to cell phones assigned to Bush campaign staffers.”
At least 10 calls came from an office number used primarily by Jeb Bush, including one call to a private line in George W. Bush’s gubernatorial office in Austin.
In an e-mail to The Times, Jeb Bush said he could not recall the purpose of the calls. “I have no clue what these calls were about,” he wrote. They could have been for many reasons. I don’t remember.”

“Bush used a personal email address as governor, and there are messages missing. As the Washington Post reporters, “Bush used his personal email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, to conduct official, political, and personal business…” but Bush’s email disclosure website (which was already public and available at the Florida state archives) lacks many key messages, including any messages between Jeb Bush and his brother, then-President George W. Bush.
Media accounts establish that Bush, not the State of Florida, decided which private emails to disclose – apparently nothing would have stopped the Bush team from selectively leaving out politically problematic emails. As the Tampa Bay Times reported, “The Bush files, though enormous, are not complete” because they lacked “emails the governor deemed not relevant to the public record.” In other words, Bush selected what was “relevant” or not for the public record, not civil servants.
The numbers do not add up. In 2007 Bush claimed he received 2.5 million emails on his public accounts, and 550,000 emails on his private accounts (Source, Naples Daily News, 7/12/07). Bush’s “disclosure” only contains a total of 250,000 emails. (Source, New York Times, 2/9/15)
There are media reports that Bush only recently “completed” handing over emails, despite leaving office eight years ago, potentially violating the law. A Bloomberg politics reporter Michael Bender tweeted today that “FL law requires govs to turn over emails after leaving office. Jeb didn’t finish turning over emails until last year.” He further tweeted that “Bush may not have complied with FL law until considering a presidential campaign. 119.021(4)(a).” That statute requires that “Whoever has custody of any public records shall deliver [them], at the expiration of his or her term of office…”.
Bush’s email archive, which includes more than 250,000 messages, has produced no piercing insights or major news stories about his gubernatorial stint. There are an immense number of emails from constituents weighing in on the issues of the day. But when it comes to the major issues of his governorship, there are—curiously—very few, if any, emails between Bush and his aides.
This email archive is not easy to search. It is comprised of 248 separate files and is hardly user-friendly. This search yielded little correspondence revealing Bush’s actions and decisions regarding pivotal events. It turns out that what’s most notable about Bush’s email trove is what’s not in it“.

It is rather amazing how the News Media and Republicans are hounding Hillary Clinton about housing her emails on a personally owned email server, but you never hear Democrats or the News Media say anything about Jeb Bush doing the same thing. And the mainstream News Media hasn’t said anything about Jeb Bush’s missing emails.
One can’t help but wonder if incriminating evidence may have been destroyed in the thousands of Jeb Bush’s emails which are missing and unaccounted for.
The News Media should be asking questions about this.

The Illegal Installation of George W. Bush as President caused the following events…
Crimes, Misdeeds and Deaths
Per article at (http://dyn.politico.com/members/forums/thread.cfm?catid=1&subcatid=4&threadid=2895278&start=271&CurrentPage=10) and copies found elsewhere on the internet, here’s just a few of the crimes and misdeeds of George W. Bush
Lying to the American People about Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify War Against Iraq
Declaring and Engaging in a Illegal and unprovoked War against Iraq
War Crimes: In the case of Hamdan vs Rumsfeld, it was proven that numerous war crimes have been committed by the Bush Administration in the war against Iraq, including the preemptive invasion itself. This does not include the unaccounted-for millions of dollars lost in Iraq or the unlawful management by the US State Department regarding the US Contractors operating in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan. Holding and torturing prisoners being held without due process at Guantanamo Bay and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal are also serious war crimes.
Deaths and Injuries: Causing the deaths of 4,475 Americans, 32,331 wounded Americans and the deaths of over 112,000 Iraqi Civilians
Outing of a CIA Agent: The outing of Valerie Plame-Wilson by the Bush Administration, admitted by the CIA as being a covert agent, has led directly to Dick Cheney and possibly directly to the President.
Spying on Americans: President Bush has admitted to his program of warrentless spying against millions of Americans in violation of the Forth Amendment and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
Missing e-mails: Two federal statutes require presidential communications, including White House e-mails, to be preserved for the nation’s historical records. From 2001 to October 2003, the White House records system over-wrote all their e-mail files, and up to 2005, some e-mails still were not fully preserved. CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) and the National Security Archives allege that millions of e-mails are missing from White House servers. (It is interesting that the timing of these lost e-mails is when most of the major illegal Bush activities were occurring.)
Misuse of e-mail systems: Both the Republican National Committee e-mail system and the White House system were used within the White House to perform partisan political activities. As the White House is public property, it is against the law to do partisan political business while on public White House property.
Unlawful FBI Activities: The ACLU has released documents showing that the Bush Administration directed the FBI to expand the definition of “domestic terrorism” to include citizens engaged in nonviolent protest and civil disobedience. This is totally unconstitutional.
Firing of US Attorneys: This was a successful attempt by the President to use his US Attorney General and the US Justice Department for partisan political gains. VIDEO
Response to Hurricane Katrina: This was a demonstration of gross negligence by the Bush Administration. A major, obvious betrayal of public trust.
Scooter Libby: The President betrayed the public trust when he commuted the prison sentence of “Scooter” Libby.
Koch Industries was indicted by the DoJ in 2000 for knowingly dumping “at least 91 metric tons of uncontrolled benzene in its liquid waste streams” at its Corpus Christi refinery, and for conspiring to cover it up in an attempt to deceive regulators.After George W. Bush took office in 2001, however, “his Attorney General John Ashcroft dropped 88 counts against Koch for the benzene spill and cover-up” in exchange for a guilty plea to falsifying documents and a $20 million fine (a settlement from $350 million in potential fines.)The Kochs made out pretty well in exchange for their $32,200 contribution to the 2000 Bush campaign. [Source: http://www.bradblog.com/?p=8778]
The George W. Bush administration ran up a debt of almost 10 trillion dollars.
George W. Bush is also responsible for the predominantly conservative Supreme Court by appointing conservative Justices Samuel Alito & John Roberts.
The predominantly conservative Supreme Court has been making partisan decisions including;
Destroying the Voting Rights Act – After the Supreme Court ruling, 22 states have passed Voter ID laws that make it more difficult to vote. Texas also rammed through their new gerrymandered districts that, prior to this decision, would have required a pre-clearance from the Department of Justice.
Citizens United allowing billionaires to buy elections
Hobby Lobby Decision which allows non coverage of birth control pills for companies owned by religious objectors.
If George W. Bush had not been president, these rulings would never happened.
These conservative justices do not reflect the will of the people and violate democracy because the majority of Americans voted for a Democrat President, Al Gore. Al Gore had more popular votes than George W. Bush. If all illegally purged voters & votes were counted, Al Gore would have clearly won Florida & the election.
It was the unnecessary Bush/Cheney Iraq War that created the conditions that led directly to the rise of ISIS the “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL).
The barbaric be-headings and people being burned alive by ISIS would not have happened were it not for the 2000 election being rigged.
The damage caused by George W. Bush will likely be felt for generations. This is why the 2000 election is so important.
George W. Bush has been convicted of War Crimes by a tribunal in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You can read the details here

Jed Bush running for President in 2016
As you can see in the video and articles posted on this page, there is evidence which supports the fact that the Jed Bush administration was involved in helping his brother get elected illegally in 2000.
Jed Bush and his administration had a duty to make sure every vote was counted and that NO ONE was wrongfully removed from the voter rolls. Evidence shows that the Jed Bush administration failed miserably in protecting citizens right to vote.
Instructing Choicepoint / DBT to match voters as convected felons using a criteria of 80% accuracy all but guaranteed that thousands of voters would be disenfranchised.
Based on all of the evidence, it is reasonable to concluded that the Jed Bush administration took deliberate action to make sure as many voters as possible who might vote for Al Gore were removed from the voter rolls.
It is a documented FACT that the Jeb Bush administration illegally purged thousands of black voters from the voters rolls in 2000 and in doing so, the presidency was handed to George W. Bush on a silver platter.
Jeb Bush and his administration is therefore responsible for the Iraq War, thousands of deaths, ISIS and all of the other disasters Bush / Cheney caused by rigging the 2000 election.
It is amazing that you never hear anyone talk about this.
NEWS MEDIA ENGAGING IN BLACKOUT REGARDING THE RIGGED 2000 ELECTION
The mainstream news media has refused to investigate and expose any of the issues raised here and in other reports found on the internet. They are not even discussing the matter. This information can be found on the Internet with just a few searches.
You never hear a news reporter ask Jed Bush about rigging the 2000 election for brother George W. Bush and you never hear news organizations discuss the issues and irregularities. It’s as though a news blackout exists in the United States regarding the 2000 election.
As shown in the image above, the majority of the mainstream news media is own by 6 corporations so it is entirely possible that a news blackout does exist regarding the 2000 election and the “powers that be” does not want the matter discussed. Keep in mind that most corporations are owned and managed by Republican businessmen.
Even left leaning MSNBC has it’s limits to what is said and discussed. Young Turks, Cenk Uygur who left MSNBC a few years ago explains that executives told him that people working at MSNBC are expected to be “part of the Washington club” and he needed to “tone it down” on reporting certain things which offended the “powers that be” in Washington. Cenk Uygur stated in videos posted on youtube that he choose to leave MSNBC rather than tone it down. Click here to view the videos; video 1 | video 2
This may explain why Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton and Chris Hayes are not discussing the irregularities of the 2000 election and Jeb Bush’s involvement in helping his brother to get elected president.
The 2000 election was huge news in Europe but the story was suppressed in the United States so most Americans have no idea that George W. Bush was a illegitimate president who was not elected to office by a majority vote of the American people.
Rigging an election is a treasonous offense. The rigged 2000 election may be one of the greatest crimes in American history, yet no one to date has been held accountable or prosecuted.
“The truth is useless. You have to understand this right now. You can’t deposit the truth in a bank. You can’t buy groceries with the truth. You can’t pay rent with the truth. The truth is a useless commodity that will hang around your neck like an albatross all the way to the homeless shelter. And if you think that the million or so people in this country that are really interested in the truth about their government can support people who would tell them the truth, you got another think coming. Because the million or so people in this country that are truly interested in the truth don’t have any money.” (cited by Uri Dowbenko in Bushwhacked, Sept. 2002, Jeb Bush, speaking to retired Naval Intelligence Officer Al Martin)
It’s time every American learn the truth!
Here’s how you can help get involved in this grassroots efforts to make sure every American is made aware of this betrayal of Democracy…
1. Sign these petitions demanding that the 2000 Election & Jeb Bush administration be the investigated by the United States Department of Justice:
3. Write and call the news media (radio, TV, newspapers) and send them links to this page. Ask them why they aren’t reporting Jeb Bush for his administration purging thousands of black voters from the voters rolls, thereby rigging the election for Jeb Bush’s brother, George W. Bush.
Anytime you see a news articles about Jeb Bush on TV or in a print news article, send a tweet and/or email to the show or author of the article about this page.
4. Contact Democrat politicians, send them links to this page and ask them to speak out and expose Jeb Bush for his administration rigging the 2000 election by illegally purging thousands of black voters from the voters rolls, thereby violating citizens rights and democracy.
5. Contact the NAACP & the Democratic National Committee and ask them why they aren’t calling out Jeb Bush. Remind them that by being silent, they are part of the COVER-UP.
NAACP Washington: (202) 667-1700
6. Post tweets regarding info on this page every place possible. Post tweets at #msnbc , #PoliticsNation, @chrislhayes, @maddow, @hardball and ask them why they are protecting Jeb Bush and why are they refusing to expose how the 2000 election was rigged.
