1. Janet Reno's Votescam
Janet Reno is not accepting the Florida vote count that gave the
primary election to attorney Bill McBride.
Reno is now arguing that vote fraud and other irregularities
opponent win, and she says that just four of 81 disputed
precincts turned up
1,818 uncounted votes.
If she can shave just a few thousand votes off McBride's lead,
she would be
eligible for an immediate state-wide recount.
If she goes ahead, bet on fresh votes for Reno turning up.
Reno is no stranger to vote fraud. A former state's attorney for
Reno is an old pro on how South Florida elections work.
For example, investigative reporters James Collier and Ken
in their 1992 book Votescam how they uncovered pre-printed voter
a warehouse rented by a Miami political candidate.
Following the advice of their editor, the reporters seized the
took the illegal ballots to the State's Attorney, Janet Reno.
Incredibly, Reno had the journalists arrested, rather than
investigate how a
candidate had pre-printed ballots in his possession!
When we saw this past primary that McBride was leading Reno by
statewide, with 60 percent of precincts reporting, and
and Palm Beach not reporting even hours after the close of

We knew this was taking place in these three counties on election
2000, when the three Florida counties took so long to report -
conveniently closed the gap between Bush and Gore.
It is unbelieveable that both Broward and Dade would claim they
still had a
significant number of precincts not report 24 hours after the
If Reno gets a recount, bet on the gap between her and McBride to
2. An Iraqi War to Cause 'Massive Recession'?
Xinhua, the Chinese news agency reports that the Economist
Unit, which operates under the Economist magazine, predicted that
would suffer a massive recession if Iraq were attacked and Middle
producers protested by pushing up the oil price.
Robin Bew, the chief economist of the EIU, told Xinhua in a
commentary, "Our forecasts assume that the United States does
and that the Middle East oil producers oppose the US action and
team up to
cut oil production, and thereby, pushing the oil price to, say,
dollars a barrel or more, that would deliver a massive
supply-side shock to
the global economy and probably trigger a massive recession,
similar to the
oil shocks in the 1970s."
Turning to the US economy, Christopher Nailer, the
economist of the EIU, also told "the imbalance in the US economy
and we rate the possibility of a major recession - worse than the
2001 one -
within the next two years as a 30 percent probability."
But some Washington insiders tell NewsMax that oil prices will

For one thing, the administration has been quietly and steadily
the U.S.'s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
Talk is that once the war starts, the feds plan to sell off large
oil to drive oil prices down.
Also, the U.S. has already lined up the Kuwaitis, as well as
Mid-East allies, to increase production as soon as the war
starts - to keep
The administration expects a brief war followed by victory, which
disarm angry nations and stop any movement for an oil production
