Various White House figures made numerous recent campaign stops in Minnesota to stump for the ailing campaign of Wellstone's Republican opponent, Norm Coleman. Despite being outspent and outgunned, however, polls show that Wellstone's popularity surged after he voted to oppose the Senate resolution authorizing George Bush to wage war in Iraq. He was pulling ahead of Coleman and moving toward a victory that would both be an embarrassment to the Bush administration and to Democratic Quislings such as Hillary Clinton who voted to support "the president."
Then he died.
Wellstone now joins the ranks of other American politicians who died in small plane crashes. Another recent victim was Missouri's former Democratic governor, Mel Carnahan, who lost his life in 2000, three weeks before Election Day, during his Senatorial race against John Ashcroft. Carnahan went on to become the first dead man to win a Senatorial race, humiliating and defeating the unpopular Ashcroft posthumously. Ashcroft, despite his unpopularity, went on to be appointed Attorney General by George W. Bush. Investigators determined that Carnahan's plane went down due to "poor visibility."In 2002 it would have been easy to simply write Niman's reported speculations off as just that, pure speculation. However since that time, the Minnesota Post, Democracy Now! and others have all reported the exact same thing; that a mountain of evidence has emerged proving that Dick Cheney used his office as a vigilante arm of justice; his personal justice, assassinating whomever he pleased at will...all under the guise of ensuring national security. As well, for the AlterNet, academic scholar and authorative investigator of the under-reported and ill-accounted, Jim Fezter, has published a lengthy piece addressing this very curious situation.
