Breaking: Vote fraud in Oregon sinks GMO labeling measure

Breaking: vote fraud in Oregon sinks GMO labeling

by Jon Rappoport

December 12, 2014

As my readers know, I’m not a fan of GMO labeling. The real route to victory has always been banning GMOs.

Ban, not label.

But I’m also not a fan of vote fraud. Which is what just happened in Oregon, where a recount of a very close election turned into a criminal act.

In November, Prop 92, which would have mandated labeling GMO food products in the state, went down to defeat by 800 votes.

That razor-thin margin triggered an automatic recount, by law.

During the recount, 4600 ballots were thrown out, because the signatures on those ballots didn’t match the signatures on the voters’ registration cards.

Oregon does elections by mail, so matching signatures is the way to prevent cheating.

When the 4600 ballots were rejected, lawyers for Prop 92 went to court to protest. They stated that some of these rejected voters never received notification that they had to provide new signatures. Other voters might have been out of town and never knew what was going on. And in general, voters were never informed that their signatures had to match.

Judge Kantor denied the assertions and allowed the recount to continue, minus the 4600 ballots.

The Prop 92 people just conceded the election.

The key, and the basis of the fraud is: Oregon voters, all of them, have never been warned, in uncompromising terms, that the signature on their ballot must match the signature on their voter-registration cards. The fact is, many people don’t always execute their signatures in the same way. If they knew, in this case, they had to, they would.

There is more than fraud at work here, however. Lawyers for Prop 92 can still challenge the election, in which case there is a significant opportunity to set that election aside and hold a new one, from scratch.

So why did the lawyers back down and fold up their tents? Why didn’t they keep up the fight?

Why won’t they file new motions and blow this up into a national and international story for the next year, as the case gains new legs?

Isn’t whole objective of these labeling measures the launching of a PR campaign about GMOs? Here’s the perfect chance.

But once again, “nice” wins the day, and, therefore, so does Monsanto. Yes, let’s be polite. Let’s not shock anyone. Let’s not make waves. Let’s not scare off the moms shopping at Whole Foods, for whom a no-holds-barred public battle is “unseemly.” Those moms do want GMO labeling; they just want it to happen in an orderly fashion.

Rainbows and marshmallows all the way.

Into doom.

power outside the matrix

There was once a day when a few lawyers, like Gerry Spence and Bill Kunstler, larger than life, could stride like lions into town and into a case, open their mouths to roar, and see a phalanx of reporters eager to quote their thunderous proclamations. They could also argue a case from sixteen different angles in court.

Now it appears, the lawyers are technicians.

They don’t see or care about the joined-at-the-hip connection between the law and publicity. They don’t see how media exposure and controversy and public outrage and raising hell can influence a case, when it’s done right.

They’re afraid to offend judges.

The Oregon case should just be getting started. What’s happened so far was phase one. Fraud won. Monsanto won. Criminals won. So be it.

Now, a new phase should begin. And in the process, there would be ample opportunity to highlight the chemical-warfare poison called Roundup and the insane unpredictable GMO technology that threatens the human race.

You have to know how to turn losses into victories. You can’t be a goody-good who thinks a decision by the authorities is the end of the battle. It’s fuel for the fire. You make hay out of it. You use it to arouse the public. The people who own the people who make laws don’t care about justice or fairness. So why should you, when you’re up against them? Many good causes have sunk below the waves because the ‘warriors’ were living in a fantasy world.

    By using their corrupt “judicial” system we legitimize an illegitimate system. As long as we continue to support, acknowledge or legitimize any of their corrupt institutions we will remain powerless to affect real change. The truly powerful people I work with state this, “Get out of the system while there is still time. “

    • ozziethinker says:

      Good comment,

      However, the system is corrupt because people (at all levels) HALF buy into the system. The bits they like, they keep, the bits they don’t, they reject; until pressured. I would like to see everyone PRESSURED by the system and then we might see the cooker explode.

      Until that time, it’s business as usual……

      • Mac Sperry says:

        Ozzie – You said: “the system is corrupt because…HALF buy into the system”

        That is an “illusion” Ozzie. People believe the vote is “real”, then “jump” to the conclusion that it is the “big money” that psychologically “tricked” the people, into voting against their own best interests.

        The vote is so easily rigged that there is simply no way to be certain that anyone’s vote has actually been properly counted, if counted at all.

        The ability to “verify” the vote was lost with the “issertion” of the “secret ballot” circa 1875-1880. Secrecy ended the ability to verify the vote.

        To say “the vote isn’t real” is just as logical as saying “it is real”! There is no “proof” either way!

        There is a short treatise on the matter here:

        • Apple Pie says:

          MacSperry, that is absolutely ridiculous. Having worked the polls, I can assure you that we definitely counted your vote, just before switching it to the pre-determined outcome.

          The vote is certainly real. Real people run for office, – after being selected and approved by the higher powers. Real people vote for these candidates, and then we alter the vote count to favor the chosen candidate. Your particular vote may not have been affected at all. The whole process is very real. The people get to vote and feel like they have had some input, which is proven by the fact that one of the candidates always wins!

          • Mac Sperry says:

            Apple Pie wrote: “Real people vote for these candidates, and then we alter the vote count to favor the chosen candidate.”

            Your drollery is welcomed here. Your type of humor serves to highlite the absurdity, of the persistent vote fraud being endured by this country.

            WHEN WILL IT END???”

        • ozziethinker says:


          This is not correct. I have experience of people from all walks of life, countries, cultures. Deep down all of them do not believe in or trust government. That is why in the “third world” peoples votes are bought with large bags of cash. In the west handouts are distributed more subtly.

          People, at best, latch onto government in the belief that by being “one of the many” they will not be disaffected on judgement day. The bourgeoisie (your local corner shop) play the system and are as corrupt as they can limit their exposure.

          Big money is just the version of parasitic man in focus. The reason that blame is so prominent is by jealousy of the “have nots” (even the mainstream attempts to appeal to these). There are legends about the “salt of the earth” yet I only meet the briny and brackish. Great or small – same deal.

          Very occasional commenters and writers for the ‘alternative’ medias offer the promise of goodness. Only deed will tell.

    • Mac Sperry says:

      Mr. Santo, you wrote: “By using their corrupt ‘judicial’ system we legitimize an illegitimate system.” I don’t believe this is completely accurate.

      All of the corruption we see before us stems from only one, single event that occurred about 140 years ago. It was the “insertion” of “secrecy” into the one & only system of citizen control called: “the vote”.

      The vote is nothing but a “transaction” between citizen & government. In principle, it is no differnet from asking for & receiving change for a $20 bill from a cashier.

      In that transaction the cashier counts out the change and thus “certifies” there is $20. You then pick up the money and also count out the change, thus “certifying” the amount.

      The change is thus “certified” by the two “principles”, the cashier & the customer. This amounts to “dual certification”. – “dual certification” = “verification”.

      If this dual-certification could be accomplished with the vote, the “control” the citizens of this & other countries had previously enjoyed would return. We could thus take this country back without a shot being fired, without a life being lost.

      Now! The good news! There is something completely new on the horizon! It is called the “Retro-Vva”.

      The R-Vva is a post-election audit system that is: simple, easily conducted, IRREFUTABLE, ad-hoc and I am sure terrifies the LIVING HELL out of every pusilanimous vermin presently stealing the citizen’s vote.

    This is sickening and of course unjust but then where did justice go? Am sick of the way the majority is treated we are just as good as any so called (elite) and probably better, so be it.

  3. procomptor says:

    Absolutely right on and thanks Jon! I live in Oregon and have paid my way through much of my college by working on local farms. Over the last dozen years or so I have watched nearly every local family run farm be bought out by ” Big Businesses “. There was a farmer in eastern Oregon that discovered GMO products in his field after noticing weeds and other natural occurrences not taking place after the ground had been re-worked! After samples were taken to OSU it was verified that they contained traces of GMO were present.

    A lot of people either just don’t get it or are simply to busy with being bothered to care about the grass seed industry here in Oregon. Gee let me put it plainly here; 1 livestock eat grass and produce milk, beef as well as pet food. 2 this grass seed goes around the world and gets planted in golf courses, lawns for homes colleges and much much more. Think about the fact most people especially kids that chew on grass including many athletes!

    Thanks Jon for bringing forward the corruption that exists from the most basic level to the top level of everything in life these days! No matter how good the reporter, lawyer or public official it seems that there is someone (judges) in place ready to circumvent any progress of good trying to get a foothold these days. What a truly sad state this country is in when people cave in to Lucifer and its many dark seductive ways!

    Great Love through the divine light that shines in the sky’s these nights….have you bothered to notice all the bright multi-colored orbs? Now try projecting pure love from your hearts and watch them grow in numbers and intensity! I live in western Oregon and have blown people away by standing with them in the wee hours and through collective love filled the sky with thousands of beautiful twinkling orbs! A couple of months back when we did this and the skies filled with beautiful lavender orbs there were thousands of small earthquakes going off in Northern California! Still don’t believe? Look up the earthquakes around the time Mt. Shasta’s glacier was melting and took out several fire roads.

    All sounds supernatural right? Well plug that word into Google and watch the hits from every religious group and many other sites! Things are happening that go beyond the bible and planet X and this was proved by the great awakening of December 10th through 30th in the year 2012. So please explain to me how several million people all received the dream, the vision and all of a sudden knew the next day about the Illuminati, Jesuits, Bilderberg group and many other sever corruptions happening in the world. Still don’t believe? Type agenda 21 into your browser and see for yourself how one world order plans on taking over our planet to meat their own agenda!

    Time is running short for friends of the Earth, Lord and light to STAND up and STAND together to defeat the rich elite’s home made Lucifer as seen on TV through half time shows, many high profile murders and corruption within all big governments. It is the final test folks to see what path mankind will take and it’s up to everyone to STAND………..mike

    what else can one expect when controlled opposition is allowed to lead the fight. there can be no other outcome. every group leading dissent was a UN NGO. some of the pro-labeling large organic farms are, not unwittingly, members of un ngos like slowfoodnation, some individuals, like mercola, are un tools. it is very easy to find this out. millions are giving power and acceptance to the un through these ngos. and money. controlled opposition IS the un and it is ubiquitous. all institutions and all aspects of life on this planet are already under the control of the un. the un is the vehicle, through agenda 21, for global dictatorship and population reduction. there is no such thing as a good un ngo.

    don’t trust any group. check out who they are, who they claim as their fellow activists, are they multi-national, who funds them. there are many un buzzwords – get to know them, it makes recognition a lot easier.

    we have been trained in no uncertain terms to ‘normalize the unthinkable’. we have to be aware of doing that. the un is manned by the most blood-lusted psychopaths on the face of the earth including bill gates and monsanto, and we accept that. unthinkable. mass poisoning of life forms on the earth is unthinkable. surveillance, militarized police force, perpetual war, genocide, common core values in our schools, pedophilia, geoengineering, chemtrails – all unthinkable and all becoming normal. we must know and understand to the core of our beings that it is not normal. it is unthinkable. we must never let it approach normal.

    many are familiar with michael ellner’s quote, below, and some agree that it is true. but how many ask why? why is it true – what makes it true?

    “Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.”

    recognizing the truth of it is the answer.

    thanks jon.

    Reblogged this on Scratch Living and commented:
    We need to clean up our election process. It’s really buggy. Jon is right, we should ban GMO rather than want our food labeled. Genetically modified foods are modified to kill the bugs that eat them and take huge amounts of poison herbicides without being killed. Our body is made up of all sorts of little beings, cells, bugs that are poisoned and genetically modified when we eat GMO foods.

  6. Zoe Swartz says:

    I have always loved your writing and agreed with your points but I am so offended by your portrayal of mothers in this piece. Moms are the feircest, most formidable opponents in this battle to ban GMOs. We are not, as you described, off in marshmallow rainbow lala land at whole foods not wanting to cause a stir. We ARE the stir. Moms instigated the very first testing of breastmilk for the presence of glyphosate. Moms stormed the EPA and demanded a meeting and we told them, “Meet our demands! We are not going away!”. Moms are working across the country to ban GMOs in their cities and towns. Moms are packing up children onto busses and taking them to D.C, some riding through the night, to protest the dark act. Moms are dragging multiple children into city council meetings and bouncing them on their knees and holding them in their arms when they get up to speak out at the microphone. We are a force of nature; we ARE this movement. With all due respect, how dare you paint us as unwilling to rock the boat. We ARE rocking it.

      And actually practically the only ones rocking the boat. Good response Zoe.

    • Dodie says:

      Right there with you Zoe! While helping here in California it was with two women that I was putting up signs and talking to people about GMO’s and they dangers they caused our bodies and environment! It is actually male based politicians who are blocking all progress we are making.

  8. M J Sperry says:

    There is a simple, elegant solution to the vote fraud in Oregon.

    It is a solution that operates “external” to government.

    It is soley conducted by “the people” themselves and does not require permission or license of government.

    It is the “Retro-Vva”. A retroactive, post election “audit”.

    The R-Vva is cosidered 100% irrefutable! See:

  9. ozziethinker says:

    Jon, there is another battle that has become so toxic it has even dropped off your radar.

    Regularly checking Jeff Rense’s bulletin board “LATEST Ebola updates”, I have not seen one article that does not falsely proclaim a) the virus exists, b) it is not an exotic plague and c) there is not a pandemic “round the corner” for a number of weeks. Indeed you were the “balance”.

    Ebola may be fantasy and GMO reality, but the former is the bigger problem short term so would desire equal limelight, surely?


  10. Jon Olsen says:

    Excellent points, well taken. Jon in Maine

  11. Jessica Denning says:

    Way to go, Jon.
    You are sabotaging us folks who are working our hearts out for GMO labeling, but not throwing yourself behind other paths, such as the bans against open field planting either, or the glyphosate testing.
    Not one of us said for anyone not to do bans or glyphosate testing.
    This is such a small, cowardly thing for you to do. Where is your leadership? Your courage?
    When Oregon lost by a mere 800 votes, you could have tipped the balance with your following by asking folks to participate, by educating about GMOs and the lack of labeling for 20 years… it sad day for your legacy.
    I am so disappointed in you.
    Prop 92 could have won, but you devoted your platform to telling folks that labeling GMOs is not the path.
    Labeling has been the path in 64 other countries.
    It was not just Monsanto and fraud that won. Criminals won. You won too, because you were right in there, as you are still in there, by judging the warriors as living in a fantasy world. You won. Labeling did not succeed in Oregon and you could have made the difference.
    Why are you not using the ‘first person’ in these pieces, and throwing your support toward Moms Across America or Connecticut Families against Toxic Trespass?
    I guess it is safer and easier for you to sit back on Monday morning after it is over and to sling mud at those actually doing something. I guess I expected more from you. You know better. It takes leadership, and it takes a team, and supporting the leader.
    And putting all of our hearts into local, fresh, sustainable, organic food.
    Go ahead and turn this loss into a victory, Jon. What will you contribute?
    Hopefully, it will not be to invalidate and put down the leaders and volunteers across the US, who are giving our lives to bringing integrity into the foods we feed our families.
    Maybe you will support some of these courageous lawyers who will stand by us in our mission. These lawyers don’t come from nowhere. They are invited, and nurtured and supported by those like you. If you have resources, commit them to victory.

  12. Michael Burns says:

    @ Jessica Denning…
    You have come to a knife fight carry what…a little sign saying “please label”.
    Take your anger for Jon, put it in a bucket of gasoline, and throw it on Monsatan. They will control your opposition until you become frustrated and give up. Understand that labeling GMO’S is classic divide and conquer.

  13. SpaceCommand009 says:

    If ignorance was bliss only the fool would want to be wise. In this case GMO bliss is ignorance. The will fix every election and manipulate judges so the wise will look like fools. That is hardly the case on any fair and objective scientific examination.

  14. Michael Burns says:

    It would be of interest to find out how those 4600 votes tallied…I would guess they are in favor of labeling…otherwise they would have publicized a that a greater number of those votes were against labeling. Plus there is the bitterness and heartbreak of slim margin of 800 votes.
    War by attrition is a bitter defeat.

    Courage and strength to those who fight against the corruption of our food.
