NSA Mobilizes ‘Election Security Group’ to ‘Protect’ Midterms from ‘Foreign Threats’
Questioning an election where there were obviously problems is dividing the country? Since when can we not ask questions about our elections?After 2016 I distinctly remember people just like you asking a lot of questions about the 2016 election results. And nobody tried to shut you up.Nobody tried to tell Hillary Clinton to shut up. Nobody tried to tell Kamala Harris when she was questioning the legitimacy of these electronic voting machines to stop.We have freedom of speech in this country. You, of all people, should appreciate that. You're supposedly a journalist. You should appreciate that. So I don't see how asking questions about an election where there were many problems is dividing the country.What I do see dividing a country is shutting people down, censoring people, canceling people, trying to destroy people's lives when they do ask questions.
Well before Trump supporters ever claimed that a U.S. election was rigged, the current White House press secretary had been at it for literal years...Yow! Those are some straight-up extremist, election-denying, democracy-threatening conspiracy theories right there. It's disgraceful, really.
2000Mules Texas Style: Newly Discovered Police Body Cam Footage Implicates Top Tarrant Co. Texas Democrat Officials in Ballot HarvestingNewly discovered police body cam footage in Forth Worth, TX obtained by The Gateway Pundit shows that the claims made in True the Vote and Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000Mules were not exclusive to the “swing states”. Or the 2020 election. This footage implicates two top Democrat leaders in the county’s party: former Tarrant Co. Democratic Party (TCDP) chairwoman and now candidate for Tarrant Co Judge Deborah Peoples and the director at The Peoples Group, Stuart Clegg. Clegg was also the executive director for the TCDP and Peoples was a member of the Tarrant County election board and commission responsible for overseeing the integrity of county elections.
Pro-Trump Arizona SecState nominee rips deal to delay cleaning voter rolls until after election"This is a usurpation of the authority of the legislative branch of government," said Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem.
Members of an organized voter fraud ring have been arrested and indicted on charges they targeted and, in one case stole, the votes of elderly voters on Fort Worth’s north side. Four people were arrested — Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra — after being indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud, according to a statement from the Texas Attorney General’s Office. These people allegedly were paid to target older voters on the north side “in a scheme to generate a large number of mail ballots and then harvest those ballots for specific candidates in 2016,” the statement read.Vote harvesting typically happens in two stages. There’s seeding and then harvesting. The AG’s office explains that applications for mail-in ballots are first sent to “targeted precincts.” Then, “harvesters attempt either to intercept the ballots outright or to ‘assist’ elderly voters in voting their ballots while ensuring that the votes are cast for the candidates of the harvesters’ choice.” In many cases, AG officials say, “the voters do not even know their votes have been stolen.”
Today, I just registered as a Democrat in my Deep Blue town, in a Deep Blue Stateposted 5 hours ago by ceremony_ +774 / -1Why?I now have a much better chance at:Becoming a poll watcherSeeing up close what happens on November 8thParticipating in School Board meetings for DemocratsSeeing what the local and state leadership are bringing aboutTo actually run and win for the School BoardThe idea here is that I'm counting on the Republican Party to "hold the line" for Patriots.In the meanwhile, I'd like to really know what the hell the Left has planned for us, and to make a difference as I can (while playing along).I'd also bring back intel from what I've learned here - as very likely other towns, counties, and states will be given the same "orders from the top".I'm going "Deep Undercover" folks, including donations, and sleazy dinners at the State Capital (10 minutes from where I live).Pray for my Soul, as what I see and hear may leave a permanent scar on me.EDIT: I cannot do "SJW" under any circumstance.However, I can do grizzled blue-dog old-school Union Democrat that's moderate (or even conservative) on social issues. Many of them will vote for Trump anyway. I get it, they need the corrupt local contracts and infrastructure projects.I will hold my nose and lend my support to that goal.
The only way to make elections resilient to fraud is decentralization and transparency. Luckily, we have thousands of years of experience showing us how to do this.Count Votes in the PrecinctFor most of US history, votes were counted at the precinct, results provided to a central agency, and ballots preserved for canvassing, recounts, and audits.This system worked because a representative of each party watched and confirmed the counts—parties who were willing (maybe eager) to turn each other in.What’s more, most of the Western World still counts votes this way.Corey Doctorow is a left-wing Canadian author who specializes in high-tech. Following the 2020 election debacle, Doctorow solved our election problems in one sentence:Elections are actually easy: paper ballots, hand-marked and hand counted in sight of scrutineers from opposing parties.Exactly what I am saying. Exactly how it’s done everywhere except the USA and banana republics where the CIA wants to control the outcome.Doctorow goes on to explain how the US election system got so screwed up:But thanks to a highly consolidated vote-tech sector with plenty of money to spend, Americans have been convinced that this can't work for America.The vote-tech lobbyists have convinced US politicians that we have too many people to hand-count ballots.BS, as Doctorow points out:Canada and the UK don't consolidate all their ballots to a single counting-house where, like, eight people tally the nation's votes.The votes are counted at the polling place. America has more polling places than Canada, but there's no reason it can't have the same ratio of polling places – and ballot-counters– to-voters as Canada does. To a first approximation, that's already true. ...With precinct voting, results would be known within two hours of poll closing. And fraud, which will still be attempted, would be limited to a few, identifiable precincts and persons.Counting in the Precinct Puts Dominion Out of BusinessVote-tech companies spend billions in lobbying (bribing) politicians. These firms have made our elections expensive, slow, opaque, and fraud-ridden. Vote-tech deserves to be destroyed.For the Missouri General Assembly’s next session, let’s pressure our lawmakers to take the next step in cleaning up elections by demand precinct-level counting and certification. While we’re at it, let’s step up pressure on Missouri’s Secretary of State (and likely gubernatorial candidate), Jay Ashcroft, to push the precinct counting initiative.Make elections fast, cheap, and transparent with a reasonable audit trail, and many other problems disappear.
Mike Lindell is skeptical about the results of the 2020 U.S. election where Biden won the presidency — he is extremely outspoken about it.He believes the government is trying to intimidate him because they don’t want him to rid the country of electronic voting machines.
Google Rigged The 2020 ElectionSenior Google engineer, Zach Vorhies, leaked 950 pages of internal documents that prove Google used censorship, blacklist, and machine learning algorithms to rig the 2020 election.
Pennsylvania County Sues Dominion Voting Systems for 'Unauthorized Python Script' & 'Foreign IP Address'Fulton County, Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems this morning for a “breach of contract”.The report alleges that Fulton County’s log files show “an external IP address” located in Quebec, Canada, and that an unauthorized “python script” had been installed after the certification date.Moreover, the system’s security patch had not been updated since April 10, 2019, and default usernames and passwords had not been changed since the time of installation.The report says, "This python script can exploit and create any number of vulnerabilities including, external access to the system, data export of the tabulations, or introduction of other metrics not part of or allowed by the certification process."What’s more, this “external IP address” was found on the very same adjudication workstation that contained the “post certification python script”.Read the lawsuit and report.
Momentum Is Building for Counting Ballots by HandCentralized vote counting is designed for fraud ...When we asked about the historic levels of distrust in our election system, Senator Eigel said, “As it turns out, we already had the answer for election integrity long before November 2020. We had been following it for more than two centuries by hand counting ballots. Today, hand counting is still used all over the world to reflect accurate elections and, frankly, was used here in America for more than two centuries.”“It wasn’t until some very powerful special interests that make lots of money selling these machines that suddenly we had pressure to change our process,” Eigel said. “The chaos of the 2020 election is the clearest legacy of that change.”Hennessy’s View pointed out in a previous post that science fiction author (and progressive) Corey Doctorow believes the US needs to ditch its centralized vote-tech and return to hand counting ballots in the precinct. Eigel agrees.“The novelty of technology, in this case, didn’t make our government process better or more transparent. In fact, faith in our electoral process is lower than it has been than perhaps at any point in American history.”
Despite what Democrats say, early voting does not live up to its promise. It does not save money, and we cannot determine with certainty that it boosts turnout. It does, however, increase the potential for fraud.
There are two kinds of voter fraud. One is obvious voter fraud. That's the kind we know about and hear about every day:Voting machines programmed to "flip" votes from one candidate to the other.Pre-printed bogus ballots stuffed into voting machines to inflate the count.Voter participation that exceeds 100% of the number of registered voters in that precinct.Observers/poll watchers of one party being ushered out of the tabulation area so that the other side is free to manipulate the totals."Mules" being hired to stuff ballot pickup boxes with additional fraudulent ballots.Mysterious boxes of additional ballots — all for one candidate — suddenly materializing in the wee hours of the morning being added to the vote count.Legitimate absentee ballots not being counted because they'd likely be for the "wrong" candidate.State voting laws and procedures being illegally changed to favor one party over the other.Mail-in voting procedures — such as signature matching and verification — being intentionally disregarded as long as the vote is for the "correct" candidate.These are the most widely known forms of voter fraud. But there is a more insidious form of voter fraud. Evil, deceptive, subtle, and cunning. This kind of fraud is practiced — or even attempted — only at the very highest levels, by real political pros, people who have immersed themselves in a lifetime's dedication to undetectable, completely inconspicuous election-fixing. This is done where one side would never even consider that the other side warrants a fair shot at election victory. The thinking goes, "We've always won, we'll always win, it's our birthright." ...Here's the latest example. In March 2022, The Democrat-dominated Massachusetts State Legislature passed a new law that gives drivers' licenses to illegal aliens and automatically registers them to vote at the time they get their license. This law, in addition to all the other bad things it cements into place, creates an entirely new pool of bogus Democrat voters. These people will be on the official voters' rolls — so they can vote in elections — but they're not U.S. citizens, and so they are technically not qualified to vote.
