One of my sources died in a plane crash last night...


By Larisa Alexandrovna

I don't usually reveal sources, but I think this is incredibly important. Michael Connell died in a plane crash last night. He was a key witness in the Ohio election fraud case that I have been reporting on. More importantly, however, he had information that he was ready to share.

You see, Mike Connell set-up the alternate email and communications system for the White House. He was responsible for creating the system that hosted the infamous GWB43.com accounts that Karl Rove and others used. When asked by Congress to provide these emails, the White House said that they were destroyed. But in reality, what Connell is alleged to have done is move these files to other servers after having allegedly scrubbed the files from all "known" Karl Rove accounts.

In addition, I have reason to believe that the alternate accounts were used to communicate with US Attorneys involved in political prosecutions, like that of Don Siegelman. This is what I have been working on to prove for over a year. In fact, it was through following the Siegelman-Rove trail that I found evidence leading to Connell. That is how I became aware of him. Mike was getting ready to talk. He was frightened.

He has flown his private plane for years without incident. I know he was going to DC last night, but I don't know why. He apparently ran out of gas, something I find hard to believe. I am not saying that this was a hit nor am I resigned to this being simply an accident either. I am no expert on aviation and cannot provide an opinion on the matter. What I am saying, however, is that given the context, this event needs to be examined carefully. If you want to understand the context more broadly, I suggest you read this article I did a while back about the break-ins and arson cases that Siegelman and others have experienced.

Just to be very clear and state again, I am not claiming conspiracy theory or direct relation to Karl Rove or the White House in any of these events. What I am saying, however, is that these possible relationships cannot and should not be overlooked by investigators. There are far too many serious and reasonable questions that must be answered for the public.

I have been to Mr. Connell's home. Mr. Connell has confided that he was being threatened, something that his attorneys also told the judge in the Ohio election fraud case. When I met with Heather, his wife, I did so carefully because of the threats he was getting.

I left a note for her in her mailbox and asked her to meet me in a local park near their home. Heather came and through our conversation I got the sense that these were not bad people or corrupt people. The Connell's really believed that what they were involved in served God's plan. Regardless of of what any of us think about their religious views or allegations relating to Connell's involvement in various things, I do think these were good people who got caught up in something bigger than themselves. My heart goes out to Heather and the children.

UPDATE ONE

Okay children - because that is what I am going to call adults who willfully mis-read information. I will say this AGAIN (as I have twice in the above entry and also used bold case so that no one would miss the caveat), I am NOT - I repeat NOT - saying this was a). a murder, b). that it was in any way connected to the White House or to Karl Rove, and c). that I am convinced of any of the above three.

On the contrary, I have said - AND AM NOTING AGAIN - that I don't know what happened. I am NOT an aviation expert. What I am saying - AGAIN - is that the context is important and must be considered. Investigators must conduct their work transparently on this case as to address the many serious and reasonable (not remotely CT-based questions) relating to this crash and the person who died. The public has a right to know and investigators must address these questions by conducting a very open investigation of the crash.

The facts are not all in yet and so I have no answers for you - AS I HAVE ALREADY NOTED. But I felt it important to share the context, obligated even to share it. Now if you folks (you know who you are) want to read this as me rolling myself in tin-foil, then that is your choice. Obviously that is not my hope, but I cannot help the lunacy that people want to engage in.

FROM VELVET REVOLUTION:

Bush Insider Who Planned To Tell All Killed In Plane Crash:
Non-Profit Demands Full Federal Investigation

Michael Connell, the Bush IT expert who has been directly implicated in the rigging of George Bush's 2000 and 2004 elections, was killed last night when his single engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron airport. Velvet Revolution ("VR"), a non-profit that has been investigating Mr. Connell's activities for the past two years, can now reveal that a person close to Mr. Connell has recently been discussing with a VR investigator how he could tell all about his work for George Bush. Mr. Connell told a close associate that he was afraid that George Bush and Dick Cheney would "throw [him] under the bus."

A tipster close to the McCain campaign disclosed to VR in July that Mr. Connell's life was in jeopardy and that Karl Rove had threatened him and his wife, Heather. VR's attorney, Cliff Arnebeck, notified the United States Attorney General , Ohio law enforcement and the federal court about these threats and insisted that Mr. Connell be placed in protective custody. VR also told a close associate of Mr. Connell's not to fly his plane because of another tip that the plane might be sabotaged. Mr. Connell, a very experienced pilot, has had to abandon at least two flights in the past two months because of suspicious problems with his plane. On December 18, 2008, Mr. Connell flew to a small airport outside of Washington DC to meet some people. It was on his return flight the next day that he crashed.

On October 31, Mr. Connell appeared before a federal judge in Ohio after being subpoenaed in a federal lawsuit investigating the rigging of the 2004 election under the direction of Karl Rove. The judge ordered Mr. Connell to testify under oath at a deposition on November 3rd, the day before the presidential election. Velvet Revolution received confidential information that the White House was extremely concerned about Mr. Connell talking about his illegal work for the White House and two Bush/Cheney 04 attorneys were dispatched to represent him.

An associate of Mr. Connell's told VR that Mr. Connell was involved with the destruction of the White House emails and the setting up of the off-grid White House email system.

Mr. Connell handled all of John McCain's computer work in the recent presidential campaign. VR has received direct evidence that the McCain campaign kept abreast of the legal developments against Mr. Connell by reading the VR dedicated website, www.rovecybergate.com .

VR demands that the Ohio Attorney General and the United States Justice Department conduct a complete investigation into the activities of Mr. Connell and determine whether there was any foul play in his death. VR demands that federal law enforcement officials place the following people under protective custody pending this investigation. Heather Connell who is the owner of GovTech Solutions, Randy Cole, the former President of GovTech Solutions, and Jeff Averbeck, the CEO of SmartTech in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Both GovTech and SmartTech have been implicated in the rigging of the 2000 and 2004 elections and the White House email scandal. Our prior request to have Mr. Connell protected went unheeded and now he is dead.

We owe it to his memory he not die in vain. Do all you can, and let all of us help. Millions of us would be happy to do all we can to assist you. The Obama administration is setting up a committee to look at the crimes of the bush administration in a methodical and careful manner. As Americans, we are sickened by the evils wrought by this rotten, amoral administration. We need to get this story out. Mainstream media is worthless, but we still have the Internet. The good news is the fact less people go to MSM for news, more go to the Web every day.

I urge all who read this to pass it on to others.
Thanks for your good work,

Marilyn Gjerdrum

I always spread the word (concerning the good work done here at ADS) and this assuredly needs to be broadcast far and wide. This crossed the line years ago, but that doesn't make this any less horrible in it's implications. I'm not prejudging, but I won't be surprised either- at all.

I do hope that he understood "who" he was dealing with and did something precautionary with the documentation.

Plane crashes, car accidents, heart attacks, and suicides all have some things in common ....

then I would have virtually no doubt that it was a hit job.

There has been almost no coverage since 11/04/08, (except for little on the accident?) and I am not clear on whether or not he truly was going to tell all. His most recent testimony that I am aware of was for the most part refusing to answer the most important questions.

Was he going to spill the beans? I don't know. If anyone can clarify this for me I would appreciate it.

If he was going to do so, I would imagine there should be some documents. I hope they turn up, but the possibility of foul play leaves me little room for hope.

This is an extremely critical issue - hopefully one that progressives will pay attention to.

Whenever you hear about certain political officials who meet an untimely demise through unusual or bizarre means, you've just witnessed an example of "termination with extreme prejudice", and that's what happened in the mysterious plane crash which claimed the life of Michael Connell.

He was "terminated with extreme prejudice" due to the fact that if he were to testify in open court concerning election fraud, a gigantic can of worms would be opened up, due to possible links between the Ohio election fraud and other criminal doings committed by Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and George "Shrub" Bush, including the "outing" of CIA operative Valerie Plame-Wilson, and the compromising of the CIA "front" company which Mrs. Plame-Wilson and several others worked for.

So, in order to make sure that the (literal) blood trail didn't lead to the doorsteps of Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and "Shrub" Bush, along with the subsequent arrests, trials and possible life imprisonments for all involved, Connell was "terminated" through a plane crash, and with his death, "Shrub" and his cronies can all breathe a little easier, knowing that they, quite literally, got away with murder..

Possible evidence Karl Rove threatened now deceased IT Guru just before he is called to testify against him?

BREAKING: MIKE CONNELL, GOP 'IT GURU', KILLED IN SOLO PLANE CRASH
Said Recently Threatened by Karl Rove, Had Beeen Key Witness in OH '04 Election Fraud Case
Built Alternate WH Email System, Websites for Bush, McCain, Swiftboaters, '04 OH Election, More...
Guest blogged by Emily Levy of Velvet Revolution
[Additional material added on 12/20/08 by Brad Friedman]
The Akron Beacon Journal is reporting that the private plane of the GOP's highly-placed "IT guru" Mike Connell's went down in Lake Township, Ohio on Friday evening. Connell was killed in the crash and is reported to have been the only person on board. There are no reports of anyone on the ground being hurt, though his plane crashed in a residential neighborhood.
Connell is a familiar name to readers of The BRAD BLOG as a key witness in the King-Lincoln v. Blackwell lawsuit regarding fraud in the 2004 Presidential Election in Ohio. That recently revived, long-standing lawsuit led to Connell's recent deposition on November 3, 2008, the day before this year's general election. According to plaintiff's lead attorney Cliff Arnebeck in July, a tipster had warned that Connell had been threatened by Karl Rove, as The BRAD BLOG reported at the time, in an attempt to intimidate him into "taking the fall" for Ohio election fraud not long after a motion was filed to lift the stay in that case.
Connell had been memorably described as a "high IQ Forrest Gump", by the attorneys for the plaintiffs in the Ohio fraud case, for his apparent penchant at the scene of "every single crime" from Florida 2000 to Ohio 2004 to the network firewall on a number of key Congressional committees to the case of the missing White House emails. (Video and text transcript of the interview with the attorneys here.)
In late September, the federal judge in the Ohio case agreed to lift the stay, and in late October he compelled Connell to give a deposition to plaintiff attorneys on the Monday before the Tuesday general election.
Connell had been served with a subpoena to appear in the federal courtroom in Ohio at the same College Park, MD airport where his single engine plane reportedly took off from last night, on his final solo flight...

we do not get too sidetracked by the Rick Warren shit - Connellgate is much too important to be overshadowed. Warren is not worth our time right now.

I have a problem accepting the idea that a witness so important to world history would be just quietly taking threats while doing something as risky as flying one's own plane around.

We will see if he was smart enough to leave proof around or if he was so dumb as to have allowed himself to be killed and evidence along with him.

His wife either has the smoking gun information, and will reveal it, or I don't believe this.

according to www.zetatalk.com , go to the GLP section for Sunday's update, every Sunday Nancy Leider channels information from a higher source, a person asked about Mr. Connell's death, the channeled information stated that he was indeed killed by the Illuminati familes because he was going to expose the truth about the election fraud. go read it for yourself.

no name - don't want to be killed too.
