subcontracted with SMARTech. This might have shaken up Rove and company. In mid-October, Rove had an article in the Wall Street Journal headlined “Obama Hasn’t Closed the Sale.” The latest Gallup tracking poll showed nearly twice as many undecided voters than in the 2004 election, Rove said, so Obama’s 7.3% lead didn’t necessarily mean that much. McCain, entering the final weekend of the race, predicted a come-from-behind victory, based on how things were looking in battleground states like Ohio. But then suddenly, on Monday night, after Connell gave his deposition, it all changed. The new Rove electoral map predicted a 338-to-200 electoral vote margin in favor of Obama. Rove had basically done a 180-degree turn.37 Spoonamore told us: “I have had conversations with knowledgeable people who say that there were significant discussions as to whether or not, if they manipulated the election, they’d get caught this time. Their biggest fear, and frankly it was rightfully so, was that there were a number of us who were working to hack into the systems to watch for their hacking.”38 Personally, I don’t think they dared fix the election, because the people knew overwhelmingly that Obama was going to win. If it would all of a sudden have come back McCain, I think there would have been an outcry in the streets that would have gotten the Bilderberg types upset—if you know what I mean. So then, on December 19, 2008, Michael Connell, 45 years old, father of four, went down in the fiery crash of his Piper Saratoga II single-engine plane. He was flying back alone from a meeting in Maryland and only two and a half miles from the Akron airport. The airplane’s right wing clipped a flagpole in the front yard of an empty house before it broke up and set fire to the garage. Connell was thrown out of the burning plane and died instantly. He was an accomplished pilot, flying in decent weather.39 A friend told a reporter that twice over the past two months, Connell had canceled flights due to suspicious problems with his plane.40 “A number of people with expertise are of the opinion that this was a hit,” Ohio attorney Arnebeck told us. “There is a method called electromagnetic pulse technology, where you can disrupt the electronics in an airplane and it’s very hard to detect, particularly after the fact. The motive would be that Connell was an extraordinary individual in terms of his knowledge and expertise in a fairly vast racketeering kind of conspiracy, in that it involved Karl Rove, business groups, multiple elections, and a fairly broad geography.”41
