1. Democrats May Steal Election as Voter Registration Grows

Despite Kerry's lagging polls, the Democrats still plan to win this November.


Perhaps by the old-fashioned way: stealing the election.

That's the word from a top Republican strategist in Washington who tells NewsMax the Democrats have put an unusual amount of resources into "voter turnout" efforts.

NewsMax's Insider Report reported weeks ago that the 527 groups supporting Kerry, and backed by the likes of billionaire George Soros, were earmarking most of the $160 million they have raised toward voter registration and "get out the vote" efforts.

Approximately two-thirds of the 527 money – or $100 million – will go toward these efforts.

Republicans believe many of these voter registration efforts open the door for qualified and multiple-voting schemes on Election Day.

Worse, the 527s are now claiming they will spend three times what has been previously reported to "get out the vote."

One pro-Kerry group, America Votes, told the New York Times that its backers – "labor unions, trial lawyers, environmental groups, community organizations – will spend $300 million on registration and turnout in swing states, a sum that dwarfs the $150 million in public financing the two candidates together will receive for the entire fall campaign."

NewsMax also has reported that only a handful of states were being targeted for this avalanche of cash, notably Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

However, Republicans believe this will lay the groundwork not for a Democratic electoral victory but for election theft on November 2.

NewsMax reports were confirmed this Sunday in the New York Times, which headlined its story "A Big Increase of New Voters in Swing States."

The paper said, "A sweeping voter registration campaign in heavily Democratic areas has added tens of thousands of new voters to the rolls in the swing states of Ohio and Florida, a surge that has far exceeded the efforts of Republicans in both states, a review of registration data shows."

As it turned out in 2000, Bush won Florida by fewer than 1,000 votes, and Ohio by about 30,000 votes.

Republicans have been shy about raising concerns about voter registration and fraud because of the race issue; Democrats have been quick to say the Republicans are "racist" for challenging voter registration efforts in minority and inner city areas.

But the Times notes that's exactly where the Democrats have been focusing their resources.

The paper reported: "The analysis by The New York Times of county-by-county data shows that in Democratic areas of Ohio – primarily low-income and minority neighborhoods – new registrations since January have risen 250 percent over the same period in 2000. In comparison, new registrations have increased just 25 percent in Republican areas.

"A similar pattern is apparent in Florida: in the strongest Democratic areas, the pace of new registration is 60 percent higher than in 2000, while it has risen just 12 percent in the heaviest Republican areas."

Of course, the Kerry campaign says it has nothing to do with the 527 efforts, but Kerry staffers appear to be happy with the results.

"We know it's going on, and it's a very encouraging sign," Steve Elmendorf, deputy campaign manager for Senator John Kerry, told the Times. He added that these efforts "could very much be the difference" for Kerry.

Steve Rosenthal, the head of another 527 group – Americans Coming Together, or ACT – told the Times, "I think what's happening on the streets, below the radar, is what's going to make the big difference on Election Day." Rosenthal claimed that by Election Day the 527 groups will have registered 2.5 million new voters.

The fourth installment of the Terminator franchise will start production in 2005, possibly without Arnold Schwarzenegger.

According to Variety, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" ("T3") writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris have completed a draft of a script, developed under the supervision of director Jonathan Mostow.

Mostow, who helmed "T3," may return to direct the fourth movie as well, though no formal negotiations have taken place.

As for Schwarzenegger, due to his commitments as governor of California, it is likely that if he returns it would be in a limited cameo role.

Variety adds that the expectation is that "T4" will break in a new terminator model.

3. Study: EU Doesn't Even Compare to Arkansas

If the European Union were a member of the U.S. it would be one of the poorest states in America, according to a think tank called Timbro in socialist Sweden.

Forbes reports that the study's figures equate European prosperity to "that of economically backward states like Arkansas."

Luxembourg is the only country whose per capita GDP ranks higher than that of the U.S.

"That France, Italy and Germany have less per capita GDP than all but five of the states of the U.S.A. is probably something that Messrs. Chirac, Shroeder and Berlusconi don't wish to know," said the study's authors, Fredrik Bergstrom and Robert Gidehag.

4. Doctor Voting for Bush: Democrats Are Killing Us

Conventional pundit wisdom says the outcome of the presidential race will turn on whether voters consider the war on terror to be the most important issue.

But not every American voter is that predictable, as BusinessWeek reports.

At least one Democrat, among many voters in the medical profession, is basing his vote on what may be the most ignored issue in the campaign.

"I've never pulled the lever for a Republican candidate in my life," said Steve Klein, a neurosurgeon and a member of a coalition called Doctors for Medical Liability Reform. "But this time, I'm voting for who will vote for reform."

According to the American Association of Neurosurgeons Web site, Klein's entire 10-neurosurgeon group lost its liability insurance coverage.

"People are dying because of politics. Not because we don't have the technology, not because we don't have the doctors, but because astronomical medical liability insurance rates are taking doctors away from our patients at an alarming rate," Klein said.

Because of lawsuit abuse by trial lawyers like John Edwards, who built a fortune suing OBGYNs while the number of Cesarean section procedures skyrocketed, the cost of malpractice insurance also has skyrocketed. And states are losing doctors who no longer can afford to pay the premiums.

"The Democratic Party is the party of trial lawyers," said Ken Mehlman, campaign manager for Bush-Cheney '04. "People ... have less access to [health care] because a few people are getting very rich."

Recently, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce donated $500,000 to a group called The November Fund, which warns voters against "putting the trial bar's favorite son in the White House." A group of plaintiff lawyers is funding a counterstrike by some of Edwards' former staff members.

5. John McCain Defines Courage

John McCain says he failed to act with courage in the 2000 campaign when he said the people of South Carolina should decide whether the Confederate flag that flew over the state capitol should have been taken down – and his apology afterward didn't mean anything.

"I rationalized, in a moment of cowardice, that that decision should be left to the people of South Carolina. ... Maybe I would have lost by more if I had spoken out – so what? At least my conscience wouldn't have bothered me long after the disappointment of a lost election had worn off."

McCain preaches about courage for three pages in Fast Company magazine, offering his take on how courage, love and fear intertwine.

"You can live with pain. You can live with embarrassment. Remorse is an awful companion."

Citing examples of corporate America and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, McCain defines courage as the failure to take responsibility for making mistakes, and choosing to suffer what we fear.

"We don't have as much to fear as we did in the past – despite the events of September 11, and despite the ongoing war in Iraq. Approximately 200,000 Americans went to Iraq to destroy the regime of Saddam Hussein. From a country of 270 million people, that's less than 1 percent of the population. Very few of us are called upon to test our courage in the crucible of fear and hard moral choices."

6. Media Ignore Security Moms for Bush

The media have come up with another new voting bloc, but though they want to talk about Security Moms, they apparently don't want to talk to them.

Nancy Kennon, founder of Security Moms for Bush, told NewsMax the group already has volunteers in almost 40 states – after launching just three months ago. But they might as well be sending their press releases to the Flat Earth Society.

"Is it media bias?" Kennon asked. "Even though all the media hype ... has been about 'National Security' and the 'so-called Security Moms' we cannot get any press!

"Our volunteers have emailed and called just about every major TV, radio and newspaper as well as their local media. No one seems to want to interview us! We are SECURITY MOMS. They love to 'reference us' like we are some unknown force out there. ...

7. Moore: Flat Tax Is Coming

Are President Bush's tax cuts the precursors to a national flat tax? Club for Growth president and conservative Reaganite Stephen Moore says yes.

"That's the hidden story of what is going on under Bush," said Moore to The New Yorker. "I helped Dick Armey put together his flat-tax proposal. Nobody could get it done politically. What Bush has done in a hidden way, is move us in baby steps toward the flat tax."

Of the 2003 tax law that dramatically cut dividend and capital gains taxes – capping them at 15 percent – Heritage Foundation economist William Beach declared it "one of the greatest supply-side changes to tax law in U.S. history.

Other proposals, like Retirement Savings Accounts, have gone nowhere with Congress. While the setbacks have frustrated many conservative voters, conservative leaders are encouraged all the same.

Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist asked: "Do you think it was an accident that the first three tax cuts moved toward expensing business expenditures, toward universal IRAs, toward getting rid of the capital gains tax, toward getting rid of the double taxation of dividend income, toward getting rid of the death tax? No. It is consistent with a vision."
