US 2020: Will people with disabilities be disenfranchised? | The Stream

As the US readies for an election already fraught with controversy over mail-in voting, many are now calling attention to the lack of accessibility for Americans with disabilities.

With the coronavirus pandemic still rampant, voters with disabilities say they are contending with a difficult decision – risk their health at the polls or give up their right to vote.

There are 38 million eligible voters with disabilities in the US, according to a Rutgers University study. Yet three decades after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activists say the difficulties they still face expose an electoral system in which people with disabilities cannot fully participate.

Voters with disabilities and disability advocates are taking action to fight for accessible voting. Successful lawsuits in Virginia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina have resulted in improved measures to ensure accessibility. Lawsuits are ongoing in other states.

In this episode of The Stream, we’ll explore the challenges for voters with disabilities and ask how they are campaigning to have them addressed.

    It really doesn’t matter whether we vote or not.
    It doesn’t matter whether we elect a Republican or a Democrat.
    Under both of these administrations alike, there is, and has consistently been, the lost of the rights guaranteed to the American people in the Constitution.
    The police, the military, the congressmen,the president, all of them follow the commands of the elites.
    We have an Oligarchy.
    The USA , has , in fact, been dropped from the World’s top twenty democracies.
    Democracies do not have legal systems which allow their Intelligence Agencies to LEGALLY, indefinitely lock up their citizens without either charging them or bringing them to court. (Research Susan Lindauer. )
    We have that in America.
    I do not even address the illegal, pervasive and invasive surveillance of our citizenry. (Research Edward Snowden. ))
    Nor do true democracies have Security Agencies which engage in the sex trafficking of women and children (even toddlers), Security Agencies which are trafficking guns, drugs, and organs, as does our CIA/DoD.
    Nor do the democracies have torture programs for dissidents, and other “undesirables,“ as we do in America.
    I shall support this last assertion using a recent example.

    Do you recall the threat which the former National Security Adviser under President B. H. Obama made to Snoop

    ‘…Snoop, back the ** off. You come for @Gale King, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty. ‘

    Ms. Rice was in the world’s face, speaking literally and not figuratively. 
    (The following statements are almost impossible to believe, but I shall refer you to a GOVERNMENT site proving the existence of EM weaponry. )
    The USA has well
    over 800 (eight hundred) military bases.
    FIVE HUNDRED of these bases are located OUTSIDE of the USA.
    Everywhere these military bases are located, reports arise of 5G electromagnetic torture. 
    From Japan to Thailand, from England to the USA, the precise same reports of 5G EM torture .

    In case you are unaware that 5G electromagnetic weaponry exists, search under ADS (Active Denial System). You will find an ancient government video which shows a tank which shoots 5G electromagnetic radiation.
    This video denies that handheld versions of this electromagnetic technology exists. 
    Absolutely False!
    Handheld 5G EM weaponry has existed for, at least, three decades. 
    There is even a miniature version small enough to fit into a man’s front trouser pocket and still leave room for his hand inside the same pocket. 
    The power and range of this miniature gun can cause  heart arrhythmia in the Target, and , consequently,  death is a possibility. 
    This method is used to publicly execute a Target and have the death appear to be from medical causes rather than a CIA/DoD hit.

    (Another rather ingenious assassination technique which has been developed by the CIA/DoD is food suffocation.
    The food or drink of the Target is contaminated using a biological or chemical agent.
    Upon consuming the slightest little bit of this contaminating agent, the Target’s throat immediately tightly swells up. The food is trapped in the throat’s passageway not allowing the victim to breathe and leading to suffocation.
    The offending biological agent disappears from the victim’s system within minutes.
    Once again, a gendre of assassination which gives the false impression that the victim was not murdered, but rather died due to an unhappy set of circumstances.
    As an aside, the CIA scientists perfected (by the 1960’s)an extremely virulent cancer which is many times(but not solely used to produce throat cancer. All biological and chemical assassination methods are perfected using real, live none volunteer subjects. )
    For information on CIA latest weaponry read Project Soul Catcher by CIA Scientist and whistleblower Robert Duncan (who also wrote How to Tame a Demon on Targeting and experimentation on innocent people).

    To go forward, I must now go back a bit. 
    Some of you may recall the disinformation apology of President Bill Clinton for the CIA/DoD developed Project MK-Ultra. (This apology is on YouTube. )

    In his apology, President Clinton greatly diminished the level of the human rights abuses,  as well as the intensity and horror, of the torture. Nor did he mention that routine killing of the victims, once they were deemed to be unnecessary, was “normal. “

    Additionally, Clinton failed to mention that these CIA/DoD developed projects were heavily reliant upon SRA (satanic ritual abuse) to achieve their trauma based mind control objective.
    (See the YouTube channel of Fiona Barnett, an SRA survivor, who was sexually farmed out to President Nixon and the Rev. Billy Graham as a child. She now receives a pitance in compensation from the Australian government.
    (NATO aligned Intelligence Services co- operate in these CIA/DoD projects. ))

    Clinton also neglected to mention that the sexual exploitation and trafficking of women and children is another integral part of these trauma based mind control projects. 
    (See the book,” The Trance Formation of America,” by Cathy O’Brian. 
    Ms. O’Brian is an MK-Ultra survivor (as is her child who was also sexually trafficked). )

    President Clinton solemnly promised that Project MK-Ultra would be terminated.
    He was less than candid.
    IProject MK Ultra was, in fact, RENAMED and EXPANDED. 
    One offshoot of this renaming and expansion is the Targeted Individuals Program. 
    (For more information on Project MK-Ultra, research “The Black Vault. “ )

    Ms. S. Rice was, therefore, in front of the world, in plain sight, threatening ‪Snoop Dogg‬ with being placed in this Targeted Individuals Program.

    A few of the elements of the Targeted Individuals Program are:
     1.  Being gunned, 24/7, with the handheld version of 5G EM torture guns.
    2.  Being used as a human laboratory test animals for biological and chemical weaponry (Like the two assassination methods mentioned above. )
    3. Being bombarded with high frequencies which destroys the hearing and damages the brain (check the back of the left eat, near the jaw bone, beneath the ear lobe for something which feels like a lump of dry skin , that may be a chip)
    4. Having  none stop subliminal messages pumped into one’s living quarters.
    5. Being none stop subjected to extreme psychological and emotional trauma (in addition to receiving long distance shocks and EM gunning)
    6. Having your pets (and sometimes loved ones killed)
    7. Being asset stripped ( not just your money and jewelry, but everything, job, reputation, clothing, photographs, personal telephone books, e- mail accounts, e-mail contacts, identification,University documentation ..EVERY-THING)
    8. During the constant home invasions, your food and water is contaminated to facilitate the shocks, and EM torture which they administer. (The contaminant is probably lithium which is odorless and tasteless, and is an excellent conductor of electricity. The USA’s two decades long war in Afghanistan is not because of terrorism , but rather to obtain their lithium and other minerals.)
    9. Having your body contaminated with worms which were meant to feed on dead bodies, but which have been genetically modified by the Intelligence scientists to feed on those still alive. (See photos on Youtube of two Chinese doctors who helped to expose the Covid 19 virus and, as a result, were punished with being infested with these worms by Chinese Intelligence. The telltale sign of this infestation is the blackened facial skin. These two Chinese doctors now appear to be be two Black men. )
    10. Being chipped like an animal. (If a Targeted Individual, or whistleblower, reads this comment and is aware of why miniature drones,which were the size of bees in 2008, are sometimes used to hover over Targeted Individuals, notwithstanding the chipping please contact me.)
    11. Being subjected to V2K … 24/7.
    12. Being gangstalked
    If you wish to research gangstalking  and Targeted Individuals on YouTube,  please note that the CIA/DoD have taken the precaution of scrubbing most pertinent videos and   placing VICE and other disinformation videos in amongst those of the few remaining real videos produced by Targeted Individuals.
    13. Having your living quarters sprayed with contaminated dust and mold

    For the daily life of a victim,  there is the video of Myron May. 
    May was painted by the CIA/DoD, and, consequently, the media as insane. Nonetheless , his video shows us something quite different.
    Watch his video. 
    HE is SANE. (To see his video go to YouTube search. Type in Targeted Individual Myron May. Go down to post by memory hole blog, James Lico, Dabbin Good and others. … many are working to keep the memory and sacrifice of Myron May alive!)
    (It must, also be noted that the CIA/DoD habitually and deliberately insert elements into the Targeted Individuals Program which actually mimic a psychosis. 
    Adding these elements  guarantees that the Target will NOT be believed. )

    I have enumerated only a FEW components which form the  Targeted Individuals Program.

    Is it any wonder that when Snoop got wind of what was in store for him, he donned  that  red, white, and blue flag scarf on his head, and most humbly apologized.
    See part two.

    Part Two.
    In any event, it gets worse.
    Many of you may be acquainted with the book, “A Brief History of Time,’ by the brilliant, English physicist, Mr. S. Hawking. 

    Due to a tracheotomy, Hawking became unable to speak. ALS, then, rendered him unable to move under his own volition. 
    Unwilling to loose this unparalleled mind, British Intelligence outfitted Hawking with a  CIA/DoD  developed micro chip.

    According to Dr. Katherine Horton, (stop 007. com) when one thinks, unbeknownst to the thinker, the vocal cords vibrate.
    When an AI chip is placed in the area of the vocal cords, this chip is able to pick up any vibration from these vocal cords and decode the messages from the brain’s language center.
    Hawking also received a computer which could speak for him after the decoding had been accomplished.

    (It is highly doubtful that British Intelligence would have outfitted Hawking with this top secret equipment had  he not worked for them! There are also photos of Hawking on J. Epstein’s infamous pedo island.
    Epstein worked with British,Israeli and U. S. Intelligence Agencies.
    (Look up Travis Bonifield and Stephen Moore to hear the Intelligence cover stories. ))

    In one of his video conferences, Edward Snowden made reference to  the above mentioned AI chip; the difference being that Snowden referred to computer printouts  of the AI translation rather than a voice translation.

    Unfortunately, the CIA/DoD also developed another version of this technology. 
    In the second version,  not only does the chip tap into the Subject’s vocal cords and, brain language center, it also inserts thoughts.
    Target’s have all been implanted with this nano technology

     Have you ever wondered why the Swiss have almost as many guns per citizen as the USA, but lack the mass killers?

    When Rice said Snoop would lose, and it wouldn’t be pretty, you can see she was not exaggerating. 

    Once  one is in the program, it is for life!

    My name is Gloria Hunt. 
    I am a whistleblower and a Targeted Individual. 
    I live in C. S. , N. C.
    I am also NOT ACCIDENT PRONE. 

    Please check and verify everything which I have written in this comment. 
    Then PLEASE HELP TARGETED INDIVIDUALS by spreading the word. 
    Only a public outcry will stop the torture, the experimentation, and the killing.
    Thank you.

    In California, every person registered to vote is receiving a vote by mail ballot. This will be extremely helpful to many, but not, of course, to all.

    I am not disabled or elderly, but I elected to receive mail-in ballots when I moved to this location, and I have done so without any problem for 13 years.

    All-access for all eligible voters, flat out! I have worked the polls for six years and have seen the challenges that people with disabilities and special needs have when they vote in person at supposedly ADA compliant places such as schools and city halls.
