Racketeering by Karl Rove and Chamber of Commerce? ProtectOurElections.org cites Allegations filed by Ohio Election Attorneys

Election Attorneys File Racketeering Complaint Against Karl Rove and Tom Donohue's Elections Operations - Complaint Charges Fraud, False Statement And Illegal Coordination

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by ProtectOurElections.org:

Yesterday, Ohio election attorney Cliff Arnebeck filed a two-count complaint with the Ohio Election Commission against The Partnership for Ohio's Future, an affiliate of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, alleging two overarching charges under state racketeering laws. First, that the Partnership is "...not truly independent, but rather has been coordinated with the Republican candidates, their agents, committees, parties and their de facto coordinated national campaign being directed by Karl Rove." Second, that the Partnership is making false statements by saying that its ads are "not authorized by a candidate or a candidate's committee," when in fact they are. Affidavit_of_Complaint.PDF

False Sense of Security From Masters of Econ Disasters And The Markets Empty Threats

It is becoming pretty darn clear that the fools that created the economic disaster think they can push us through it on their wishful thinking. Idiots like Geithner are painting rosy pictures of what they are doing - with Obama noddingly approving of it - and hoping you, the average American and the ones that are still being crushed economically, won't notice. Yves there:

Geithner Yet Again Misrepresents TARP “Performance”

Meanwhile and according to Paul Krugman,

Against The Super-Asinine, The Gods Themselves Contend in Vain


Brad DeLong wonders how the proponents of tight budgets and tight money are prevailing in the midst of mass unemployment, low interest rates, and incipient deflation.

It’s actually not all that surprising. Horrifying, but not surprising.

The case for expansionary policies in the face of a slump is intellectually difficult; Keynes described the writing of the General Theory as a painful process of discovery, and so it is. The natural instinct of almost everyone is to think that tough times require tough measures, and that if the economy is suffering, the government should tighten its own belt. It would take a clear consensus from economists to overcome that natural bias.

And that consensus has, of course, been lacking — largely because a significant proportion of the economics profession has spent the last three decades systematically destroying the hard-won knowledge of macroeconomics. It’s truly a new Dark Age, in which famous professors are reinventing errors refuted 70 years ago, and calling them insights.

While we bear in mind that there may be real solutions that will stop this disaster from happening again, and the need to really address the results of it honestly, there are the underlying rules of a market whose obscene motto for years was:
