Smartmatic, the Venezuelan software that rigs elections in up to 28 USA states

How did the USA end up using Venezuelan software to rig elections?

Answer, not by accident, surely…

Read how the US Republic left a hole in their own state security so wide that no one can see the wall. Then ponder that neither the CIA nor the FBI stopped this software being used in 28 states, nor did they stop the election results being stored and counted in foreign countries. The Free Press forgot to investigate, and still don’t think it matters.

The program called Smartmatic counts votes, and changes them too. It was designed for Hugo Chavez to win in Venezuela, and to be undetectable, and it worked. Thanks to a whistleblower, the Trump team has a sworn testimony from a high ranking former Venezuelan military officer who saw it in action. He watched as the Chavez team followed the results on big screens and realized they were too far behind. They realized they needed drastic action so they … stopped the counting… spent two hours “adjusting” results, and then started counting again… and who would have guessed — but the election results swung the other way. Spooky eh?

Speaking of accidents, the Chairman of Smartmatic is already on the Biden Simulation of a Transition team.

Vice Admiral Peter Neffenger (USCG retired) is a member of the Homeland Security transition committee and was the head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) under the Obama Administration.

USA, Venezuela, What’s the Difference? — About twenty years.

The testimonial from the high ranking Venezuelan military officer who worked with Chavez is damning — the software was always intended to subvert the voters wishes.

Hugo Chavez wanted “undetectable” vote manipulation:

Chavez wanted electronic fraud that was undetectable.

From the Affadavit @SidneyPowell1  | (Click to enlarge)

 

Do these software tricks work? Oh boy do they work…

In the 2004 “recall election” in Venezuela millions marched in the streets to get rid of Chavez, but it appears the voting software flipped a 40:60 exit poll result to a 60:40 “winning” result:

 Monica Showalter, American Thinker: The last time we heard about that was in Venezuela’s 2004 fraud-plagued recall referendum on then-President Hugo Chavez. Millions and millions of Venezuelans marched in the streets against him , and then when the recall referendum was held, it failed hugely, something that seemed very strange given the size of the crowds. That was the fiasco that official election observer Jimmy Carter praised so highly as free and fair “despite what went on in the totalization room” according to the Carter Center report. After that, computer scientists from Amherst, Stanford, U.C. Santa Cruz, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard all found evidence of vote flipping statistically speaking. Besides their conclusions that it was a statistical impossibility, a well-known pollster, Penn, Schoen & Berland, taking exit polls at the same referendum found that 60% were in favor of throwing Chavez out, and 40% favored keeping him. Much to his surprise, the scorecard came out in almost the exact reverse, 58-42. Flipped.

In a crisis, stop counting?

According to the former Venezuelan Military whistleblower, Smartmatic allowed a team to watch the results come in live so they knew how many votes they needed to fake. In 2013, when the situation required really big cheating, they decided to “reset” the whole count, go offline for a couple of hours and “make the adjustments”:

After the Smartmatic Electoral Management System was put in place, I closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated using #Smartmatic software. One such election was in December 2006… [another was] On April 14, 2013,” In that election, Nicolás Maduro ran against Capriles Radonsky… Inside that location was a control room in which there were multiple digital display screens – TV screens – for results of voting in each state in Venezuela. The actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the displays over an internet feed, which was connected to a sophisticated computer system created by Smartmatic. People in that room were able to see in “real time” whether the vote that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor or against them.

By two o’clock in the afternoon on that election day Capriles Radonsky was ahead of Nicolás Maduro by two million votes. When Maduro and his supporters realized the size of Radonsky’s lead they were worried that they were in a crisis mode and would lose the election.

So, the decision was made to reset the entire system. Maduro’s and his supporters ordered the network controllers to take the internet itself offline in practically all parts in Venezuela and to change the results. It took the voting system operators approximately two hours to make the adjustments in the vote from Radonsky to Maduro… By the time the system operators finish, they had achieved a convincing, but narrow victory of 200,000 votes for Maduro.

Things must have been going very badly for the Biden team to have to stop the vote counts in so many states in the middle of the night to stop Trump winning there and then.

The founder of Smartmatic admitted electronic tampering can change “a million votes.”

For some reason the Smartmatic crew fell out with the Venezuelan government and in 2017, Antonio Mugica, Former Founder and CEO of Smartmatic, said previous elections were all reliable but the last one was manipulated in the order of one million votes. Furthermore he said it was possible because there were not election observers in the room from both parties.

 

If you haven’t already seen it,  Newsmax TV and Sidney Powell on the whistleblower:

 

The misinformation about misinformation

As word spreads about the travesty that is the US electoral system, the airwaves are filling up with fog. The aim here is to distract people with trivia that can be corrected so that the Biden fans can use the words “debunked” in the same sentence as “Dominion” and “Smartmatic”.

 

Snopes is already onto the link between Smartmatic and the Biden “team, telling us it’s mostly false that:

“A member of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, Peter Neffenger, served as chairman of Dominion Voting’s “subsidiary,” Smartmatic.”

Watch the pea. Smartmatic isn’t a subsidiary of Dominion (though Dominion once bought a subsidiary of Smartmatic), but it still makes software that is designed to rig elections and it counts many of the votes in the 2020 election. Maybe that matters? Snopes is bravely slaying strawmen in a fog. It just wants you to think it’s debunking stuff that matters.

To that end, Smartmatic and Dominion have declared themselves “competitors”. But it’s just semantics.  Smartmatic also says “it has no ties to political parties”. (Apart from the Chairman helping Biden on Homeland Security.)

How different are Dominion and Smartmatic? Like clones:

 Monica Showalter, American Thinker: … in short, Venezuelan-led Smartmatic bought U.S.-based Sequoia, put its technology into Sequoia, and then sold it to Dominion. Dominion denies having anything to do with Smartmatic now, though at one point it allowed Smartmatic to market its same technology abroad in places where Dominion didn’t do business (they got into a lawsuit over Puerto Rico), but the bottom line is that the technology is all the same because it was all the same company.

The Whistleblower agrees.

Smartmatic

Voters have no idea their vote is recorded the opposite way they intended:

Smartmatic

It doesn’t matter what the voter decides, it’s what the software decides that matters:

    Good morning Jo,
    This is sheer brilliance!
    I love love love your latest article.
    Anyone who has the slightest shred of interest in our future (& beyond), should read this article.
    As a general rule, I despise generalizations, mainly because they are generally wrong – to a smaller or larger degree!!
    (Statistically also, the more variables &/or unknowns, the greater the likely-hood & size of the error.)
    Which brings me to my take on the above; The two elephants in the room of the post-war era are as follows:–
    1. The medium & long term dystopian economics of the Global Climate Scam; &
    2. The socialisation of America’s education, media, entertainment & 2 major political parties.
    I would love to expand on both of these, but many/most of Jo’s regulars would be able to relate to nearly all that is involved.
    The only consolation I can offer people is simply this.
    If the Biden/Harris ticket triumph in the coming 3 weeks in the courts & electoral college, then finally the conservatives throughout the US. (& beyond) will finally start trying to defeat all these socialist-regressive-progressive ideas with a little more fervour & sense of urgency.
    Warm regards, Reformed warmist of Logan.

      President Trump has a brilliant Constitutional Challenge that virtually states that all of today’s States are not in compliance to the Constitution where each legal vote must have a chain of command back to the voter. Over the century many legal ammendments are in place. Computers and mass mail voting do not give a chain of command and can be manipulated as we can see. This means that each State has broken their Constitution Obligations.
      Which is a fantastic defence all the way up to the UU Supreme Court.

        Georgia has done a recount.
        Five million + votes tallied by hand. No computers involved.
        And Georgia has voted for Biden by 12,000 votes.
        Georgia’s 11 electoral college votes are gunna be voted for Biden.
        Looks like the end to me.
        Time to move onto issues that need attention.
        Like the BOM
        Like the ABC
        Like the thriving great Barrier Reef
        Like the Covid lockdown here in SA which will end early on Saturday night
        After SAPOL discovered that the virus was not being spread via Pizzas sold from the Woodville Pizza Bar
        The man who told this lie was in fact a casual employee at the Pizza Bar
        And also infected with Covid.
        So SA Locked down for 4 days because of a liar !

          A recount is not an audit! Audits are the only way to dtermine that Legal votes are counted. In some places 200% of people eligible including children got ballots. The court has no integrity unless rolls are auditted and a revote is the only way the USA can trust their election result. If Biden wants unity seeking honest elections would be essential

            ! : Unfortunately the ( written ) US constitution demand that states certify who won the election in their states in a few days.

            2: I have suggested time and time again that a professional, national, competent, impartial, non political, electoral Commission to manage voter enrolments, the electoral roll and the national elections.

            However I’m told by Trump supporters that this os unconstitutional and d past attempts to set up such an electoral commission have been blocked. So I guess Trump’s supporters will just have to live with the consequences of the current ramshackled system(s). Namely a Biden Win.

          You ain’t gunna get very far here Seedy as the far right are convinced the election was fraudulent. There is no real hard evidence to support any of the claims made by Trump and his henchman and henchwoman. As for stopping the vote which seems to be thought a real big cause of fraud, no one has mentioned that Trump wanted the vote stopped in counties where he was ahead and not stopped in counties where he was behind. Why was that?

          This whole furore is just a beat up by a man who cannot stand losing and who has conned so many into accepting his complaints without asking themselves “OK but where is the evidence”. Well. where is it? Why is Trump’s word so blindly accepted when his record shows he is not averse to making his own truths to suit his own ends?

            Ian asks- “Trump wanted the vote stopped in counties where he was ahead and not stopped in counties where he was behind. Why was that?”

            That is where the biggest machine vote fraud occurred. When the vote stopped the result was tuned to reduce Trump majorities in Republican districts. A deliberate act as not so easy to detect and if detected less fuss. But there is no representation from counties, only from the state, so total Trump votes are lowered at state level. No change in any county winner, but the state winner changed.

            The photos and vids of vote numbers changing, suddenly, by big amounts, especially during and after the counting halts, including drops in Trump votes, are evidence.
            Drops- one moment the vote is so much, the next moment the vote is lower.

        So to begin with the USSC is not a court of original jurisdiction, so there’s no case that can start there, it would have to begin in a lower court. Second there is no requirement, constitutional or otherwise that even hints at a vote being “tied” to a chain of verification, in fact it’s exactly the opposite, voting is supposed to be and is purposely “blind” so one cannot ever see who someone has voted for. Lastly states do not have constitutional obligations, the constitution spells out how states have all powers not assigned by it to the federal government and contains rules for certain elections and appointments, and of course rights. Not duties. Rights. A little more education wouldn’t hurt you.

      Dear Simon,

      The Democrats of 2016 were anything but democratic when they mouth-frothed #NotMyPresident;
      The regressive-progressive “Keep It In The Ground” meme has total appeal to the world’s poorest one billion;
      And the Chaz “experiment” was such a huge success, it had to be dis-mantled in under a month!

      “….. if his attempted assault on democracy wasn’t so dangerous.”

      Isn’t that what he is accusing his opponents of ? Why is it that Democrats can spend 4 years trying to prove that Trump was illegally elected in 2016 (Russian influence etc), and yet if Trump queries the election result before the statewide votes are even certified, then he is assaulting democracy ? Why is that ?

      He has every right to query things which seem odd and to make sure that there was no fraud. And Biden should be interested in exactly the same thing !

          Exactly what are the Democrats doing to cover up as only they can? What’s your evidence for that statement? Why have Trump’s submissions to the judiciary been rejected? Are all justices hand in glove with the Democrats to defeat Trump by any means possible. Or is it possible that there is no hard evidence of wide scale fraudulent behaviour?

            Answering your own question is hardly objective. But to answer your question. A topic on a science e based blog put out to an audience is almost certain to get responses with which other responders do not agree unless of course the blog is just an echo chamber which this one isn’t. And laying down evidence does not automatically mean that it should not be challenged. Ate you aware that so far none of the allegations raised by Trump and his colleagues have been found to be true?

          The people who think the US election was fair and free and obtained the right result are getting more desperate by the day.

          Rudi’s hair dye apparently ran down the side of his face, which was not only commical but demonstrates beyond doubt that he was making a dangerous assult on democracy. Then all the allegations of voting machine fraud as presented by Jo is stark raving lunacy.

          In reality it was probably his make up that ran down.

          The Sctyl computer server rescue operation seems to have been done in a way which blind sided the CIA. Other things have been done before and since the election day which are coming into focus.

    There will be denials, and the usual BS.
    There is an elephant in the room.

    The Democrats have spent many years trying to change our electoral system to enable the kinds of fraud we have seen.
    Simple things. In Florida the voter marks the ballot, the machine scans it, the ballot is saved.
    In Most of Georgia, the voter touches the screen, the machine prints a register. It might actually reflect the voters preference.
    All of the other changes, to registration, to mail-in, to absentee, have been flogged over many years and often forced due to to Covid.

    Every change the Democrats wanted enabled the type of fraud charged to be accomplished, and it was.

    Any jurisdiction that can’t reform to an auditable vote system can assume it’s elected officials are fraudulently in office.

        There will always be a few such votes.
        The point is that a system that can reliably find them will discourage them
        sufficiently to make elections generally fair and Accepted, like what we had for
        200 plus years outside of a few big cities and some clear cases of racial bias that, in
        a generally clean environment, stood out like sore thumbs.

        Now, if you see a traditional verified voting system the appropriate comment may be “How Quaint”.

        And the drumbeat goes on for internet voting. That’ll work really well, don’t ya think?

      I do hope you are right but it’s not all over by a long shot. I wish it would be over by the end of the year but it’s looking less and less likely. If the evil ones manage to pull it off and Trump fails to blow the lid off the stolen election in the courts including the Supreme Court, there is only one option left to prevent the US falling down into the abyss of evil cartel of big corporations (not just IT); use his executive emergency powers to remain President until it is all resolved even if it takes many months, and if necessary use the military. Otherwise, watch the US continue to go down the slippery slope big business take over of the whole nation. Mind control will be next using new developments in the merging of IT and biology. As the Klaus Schwab said “What the fourth industrial revolution will lead to is a fusion of our physical, digital and biological identity.” His grand vision of the Great Reset has already started. Trump needs to kill it before it’s too late.

        Yes. Microwave tech has been around since the 1970s when thye foun dit was possible to beam “voices” inside peoples head using microwaves. Microwave psychotroinic wapons appear to have been used for a long time, but the media always said it was tin foil hat stuff.

        Mind you, to cook someone from some distance away requires a lot of power, and it would likely have to be a very focussed beam.

        Microwave is just RF – its a radio frequency.

        Worth noting that mm wave is in the freequency range used by 5G.

    It is frightening how democracy is being eroded by left-wing fraud and corruption. We have always known that socialists (or Marxists, communists etc) will stop at nothing to gain and retain power. They know that they will always eventually fail at the ballot box because everything they do ends up ruining the economy and ruining people’s lives.

      Which is why the lid over all this needs to be blown off completely once and for all before Biden even has the chance to be sworn in as the POTUS. Once he is the POTUS it will be too late. Impeachment of Biden will actually make matters worse as the Vice President then steps in. If Trump manages to stay he has to use all his powers to flush out the criminals and put them behind bars. The gloves have to come off. The trouble is much of the big corporations are in it so it will be impossible for him to defeat all of them, unless he nationalises all of them, which is not a good thing but may be necessary.

        Careful what you wish for.

        ‘According to The New York Times, it took the combined persuasive powers of Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley and acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller to talk Trump out of the idea of bombing Iran’s leading nuclear facility at Natanz last week.’ (NBC)

          Why would Trump do that, the US has a history of not being able to locate Nuclear anything in a desert, even carpet bombing countries they miss the target.
          Now Israel are very experienced at this and have never missed, dropped multiple Bombs on target every time and never suffered a casualty.

    Strangely the trump admin has endorsed the infrastructure used to count the vote

    in real news – Trump is going to ask for a recount in only 2 Wisconsin counties, at a cost of 3 million, as that is all they can afford – most of the money raised for the election has been well spend in very targeted campaigns which worked to hold up the republican vote, but there is no cash left now.

      Hope it is not like what they used in Ecuador.
      “Conservative Guillermo Lasso, whom three exit polls predicted would win after the vote on Sunday, got 48.8%.”
      “On Sunday, when it first emerged he looked likely to lose, Mr Lasso called for people to “peacefully defend their votes”.
      Warning remember to convert from BBC “hundreds” to reality.
      It resulted in hundreds of Mr Lasso’s supporters gathering in front of the electoral commission offices shouting “No to fraud”.

      Rupert You may be interested in “Malcolm Roberts – Pauline Hanson’s One Nation” Facebook post
      Here is a cut and paste of the text.

      Electronic voting & tabulation in Australia
      There has been a lot of discussion about the election software being used in the US elections and whether it has been manipulated and many requests from you to look into the Australia’s use of elections software.
      I have my staff working on a detailed review which I will release soon, but for now here is an introduction.
      ——————
      Spanish Software company Scytl (pron sight-el) supplied election software to the AEC, Victoria, NSW (iVote), ACT and WA election authorities.
      All the States have continued to take the official updates from Scytl, while the AEC have moved development of the software in-house.
      AEC use Scytl for overall vote tally and in the allocation of Senate preferences in conjunction with Fuji-Xerox scanning system. That system has not been audited to ensure accuracy!
      NSW have done the best job of auditing the software and a summary of analysis is below, the AEC will not give anyone a look at what they have done with Scytl (or not done).
      Senate Inquiries were held into the use of electronic voting for the 2013 and 2016 Federal elections. The Australian National Audit Office (ANOA) conducted a review of the software at code level in 2017.
      Any fixing of the software since then has been done in-house (per the AEC testimony). Their software was not reviewed after the 2019 Federal election.
      NSW Scytl review findings:
      1. During the election, we performed an independent security analysis of parts of the live iVote system and uncovered severe vulnerabilities that could be leveraged to manipulate votes, violate ballot privacy, and subvert the verification mechanism;
      2. Deficient control of admin panel access (to the voting figures), no change log, remote access possible despite computers being air-gapped, no alert system for unauthorised access, deficient handling of data storage devices (with the results on them);
      3. ANOA audit: We found there was a serious security hole in Scytl, using the practice version of the server, we showed that it was possible for a malicious party on the internet to use a vulnerability in the system to take over the person’s voting session on their web browser, expose how the person intended to vote, and change the vote before it got sent back in to the Electoral Commission.
      4. No audit was conducted of the 2016 Senate scan to ensure the preference flow agreed with the paper ballots. No audit to ensure all ballots were accounted for.
      Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy, ensuring that our elections are transparent and free of fraud is paramount.
      More to follow …………

        Sorry Jo! I misinterpreted the context of the sentence at the beginning “Read how the US Republic left a hole in their own state security so wide that no one can see the wall.” As USA is a democracy and Venezuela is a republic I took it as a reference to the Venezuelan election fiasco. One doesn’t often hear USA referred to as ‘the US Republic’ but I have since learnt that it may be correctly called a Presidential Republic and a Democratic Republic. My apologies.

        I must admit that as an Australian who has lived for 64 years in a centuries-long Constitutional Monarchy the concept and meaning of ‘republic’ is a bit foreign to me..

    I previously posted this:

    Smartmatic software is used in Dominion voting machines. And who’s Chairman of the Board of the holding company of Smartmatic?

    Former UK Labor politician and UN Deputy Secretary-General Baron Malloch-Brown.

    From Wikipedia:

    Malloch Brown became chairman of the board of directors of SGO Corporation Limited, a holding company whose primary asset is the election technology and voting machine manufacturer Smartmatic, in 2014. Citing Malloch Brown’s former and present relationship with politicians in the Philippines as well as his role in Smartmatic, the IBON Foundation, a non-profit research organization based in the Philippines, criticized him as being “a foreigner who made a career out of influencing elections”.

    Association with George Soros

    Malloch Brown has been closely associated with billionaire speculator George Soros. Working for Refugees International, he was part of the Soros Advisory Committee on Bosnia in 1993–94, formed by Soros. He has since kept cordial relations with Soros, and rented an apartment owned by Soros while working in New York on UN assignments. While serving as United Nations Development Programme Administrator, Malloch Brown spoke beside Soros in 2002 suggesting that United Nations and Soros’s Open Society Institute, as well as other organizations, work together to fund humanitarian functions.

    In May 2007, Soros’s Quantum Fund announced the appointment of Malloch Brown as vice-president. In September 2007, The Observer reported that he had resigned this position on becoming a government minister in the UK. Also in May 2007, Malloch Brown was named vice-chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Institute, two other important Soros organisations.

    He is also a globalist and wrote a book.

    From Penguin website.

    https://www.penguin.com.au/books/the-unfinished-global-revolution-9781846146282

    The former United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Mark Malloch-Brown diagnoses the central global predicament of the 21st century. As we have become more integrated, we have also become less governed. National governments are no longer equipped to address complex global issues. From climate change to poverty, international organizations have not yet been empowered to step into the breach.

    The Unfinished Global Revolution chronicles how over the past few decades, domestic problems – from unemployment to environmental distress – have international roots. Increasingly, ad hoc arrangements between NGOs, civil society and the private sector are filling in the gap created by the failures of individual governments. Malloch-Brown urges us to embrace these evermore powerful international institutions and the values needed to underpin a truly globalist agenda – the rule of law, human rights, and greater opportunity for all. Now is the moment for creative statesmanship to form a new approach to global politics, one that will produce stronger international institutions that revive rather than replace national governments.

    Malloch-Brown has been at the centre of recent world events. Drawing on his experiences at the frontlines of international development – from Cambodia to Darfur, Washington to UN headquarters – Malloch-Brown provides a personal, on-the-ground view of seemingly abstract challenges and forecasts the way forward in global politics. This book should be required reading for all policy makers, politicians and concerned citizens of the world.

    The founder of Smartmatic admitted electronic tampering can change “a million votes.”

    But he doesn’t admit anything about electronic tampering as far as I can see anywhere. The only explanation he offered is as you quote

    he said it was possible because there were not election observers in the room from both parties.

    For some reason the Smartmatic crew fell out with the Venezuelan government and in 2017

    Perhaps this has nothing to do with a falling out and more related to the fact since Maduro only won by a narrow margin in 2013 (after Chavez died) and in this assembly election the opposition protested by not running candidates, this was the first time the government felt the need to try and rig the elections to create a large turnout?

    The supposed independent National Consituent Assembly at the time was run by Tibisay Lucena

    Tibisay Lucena was the president of the National Electoral Council or CNE until 2020, one of the five branches of government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

    Lucena is considered to be pro-PSUV by the opposition, despite that the position she holds must be exercised with neutrality.

    Antonio Mugica explanation seems perfectly reasonable – that the electronic voting system secured against fraud by proving the announced results by the National Electoral Council didn’t tally with the actual electronically counted votes.

    This story gives quite a detailed illustration of a similar tally mismatch in an October 2017. Seems perhaps Maduro was throwing caution to wind that year.

    Danielle Walker

    All of this is complete bullshit, and you know it. If you would actually do real research instead of recalling hearsay, you’d like that Smartmatic put out that statement in 2017 letting everyone know that Venezuelan votes were manipulated BECAUSE they didn’t have auditors present at the polls. And if you would read the official US Government statement from election officials, you would know that the auditors on BOTH SIDES recorded no tampering as reported from the reports expressed by the machines themselves. Smartmatic says that if any votes were changed, the machine will record those changes and those changes would be recorded in a report. So, why isn’t Guiliani showing us reports from the machines instead of hearsay affidavits? BECAUSE THERE IS NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF VOTING MACHINE TAMPERING OR COUNT MANIPULATION.

    [Now how would there be evidence without an investigation? Danielle Walker have you done an investigation? Have you evidence of a third party investigation? Are you simply repeating what you want to hear without anything to support it?]ED

    22

    • #

      Hmm. Smartmatic is built on lies and cheating but we should trust them?

      The software is designed to make undetectable changes. It’s designed to change votes after the voter has left the scene. How can that be detected without a full and complete audit of votes (and possibly not even then if the Dominion machines can print ballots that are different to the choices voters made?).

      How could Rep observers see the machine code at work in those machines — and also with binoculars from 60 feet away through sheets of cardboard?

      Are Rep observers psychic, and do you have any evidence of that?

      He did, and even though there was the biased black out of virtually all Trump’s activities by MSM/social media, I remember him saying he had fears that the Democrats would “steal” the election. This mostly centred around the mail in ballots situation which I think was a smoke screen to hide the more important vote switching software. But he cant do everything on his own – so you have to start pointing fingers at the GOP and the backing of their President. Clearly, also the SWAMP has fought back. Whoever is proclaimed the winner of this election will still have a difficult job. They will still have effectively half the voting public who hate and detest you- irrespective of party.

    I’m beginning to wonder if the reason for some of the conservatives giving up the fight is because they know the election was stolen from Trump but don’t want to press the issue to avoid a civil uprising that might lead to a civil war. Perhaps they take the view we need to focus on the next election. The problem with that of course is it’s a surrender to the crooks who will be allowed to build their evil empire and make it much harder for them to be voted out. That’s why the truth of how fraudulent this election has been must be exposed now regardless of the consequences. Once they get control of the White House, it’s all over even if the Senate remains in the hands of the other side.

      There won’t be a next time. If the socialists take over the US they will do as they have stated and get rid of the electoral college and add additional Leftist justices to the Supreme Court. Plus they will open the borders and enable illegals to vote as Obama did with the “motor voters”. This is the last chance.

      Also, the threat of civil unrest by the Left should be no reason to abandon the pursuit of justice. If you do that, you’re already living in a dictatorship.

      This is a coup by the American Left plus an effective act of war against the US by foreign powers aiding American coup makers via manipulation of voting machine numbers to secure a Harris Presidency. Trump would be within his rights to counter the coup plus foreign interference with the election via military action.

      Failing all that, Americans have their Constitutional right, via the Second Amendment and the Declaration of Independence to remove an illegal government. The Second Amendment is the ultimate “reset” button for the US Constitution. Hopefully it won’t need to be used.

We will only need to come to answer that only if Biden ends up being sworn in as POTUS. Hopefully he won’t be.

Yes, it will be armed conflict, but as they say, you vote your want into socialism but have to shoot your way out of it.

    Isn’t it interesting how conservatives are normally interested in labour saving devices such as automation but when it comes to voting we are mostly against automation in the form of voting machines because we know how the Left will use the machines to easily manipulate votes.

    Leftists are normally opposed to automation because it supposedly eliminates jobs but in this case support it due to the ability it provides to manipulate votes.

    50

      David Maddison

      Plus, another point is that Leftists NEVER care about costs (when they are spending other people’s money), so why do they so badly want to use voting machines which might reduce labour costs?

      There is no other area in which they ever want to reduce costs. The only possible reason they want voting machines is to facilitate fraudulent elections.

Question the AEC on this matter and you will be told that this is correct but they are prevented by law from telling the people that they have this option.

    For the benefit of those unfamiliar with US Constitution, the Office of the Executive, President, his/her election is the ONLY office that has strict, Constitutionally bound, procedures that are immutable and cannot be challenged, except by future Amendment by a Constitutional Convention and subsequent ratification by a super majority of the individual states.

    Mandated by the US Constitution:

    1. Election Held. On the Tuesday following the first Monday in November in an election year.

    2. State Electors Certified by each State, by the State Governor, On or before 8 Dec. If Under Amendment XII, the electors are NOT certified by the State Governor, those votes from that State are eliminated from consideration UNLESS BOTH the Senate and House vote to allow them to be considered.

    3. Slate of Electors from each State are Read Into the Record by the Vice President at a Joint Session of Congress On 14 Dec. If a candidate receives 270 electoral votes, then he/she is presumed to be President Elect. However:

    4. Executive Order 13848, 12 Sep 2018, requires the Director of National Intelligence to provide a report of any foreign influence in any US Election within 45 days of an election and provides penalties and sanctions for violators of that order, including forfeiture and seizure of assets, criminal prosecution for Felony, sedition and treason. That deadline is 18 Dec 2020.

    4. If, under 3 USC 15, “Counting Electoral Votes in Congress”, an objection to the electoral votes from a State have Objections from Both a Senator And a Congressman that remain unresolved, then the electoral votes from that State are rejected.

    5. IF no candidate receives a majority of the allowable electoral votes, then the vote descends to the House of Representatives, where each State has 1 vote. ( there are now 36 Republican and 14 Democrat votes available by the States)

    6. By 6 Jan 2021, a President Elect will be decided, by Law and Constitutional Directive.

    I seriously doubt the Legal Challenges will be resolved in the remaining days. 18 days remain until each Governor is required to Certify his State’s Electoral Votes. 24 Days remain until the electoral votes must be read in the Congress. 27 days remain until DNI must file the election interference report. These dates cannot be changed.

    It is going to be interesting, no doubt. But it will happen on the schedule defined by the Constitution. Like it or not.

      Um, if I might disagree upon a point or two.

      GA did NOT have a vote Audit that the Governor said would happen. They had a sham recount.

      A “vote audit” requires verification of voter eligibility and signature. The recount simply shoved the same old ballots through the same old machines to gain the same result without changes.

      Gov. Kemp was part and parcel of paying 107 Million USD to purchase the Dominion/Smartmatic voting machines in Mar 2020. He ostensibly received promises and payments to do that. Even though he is a Republican.

      Once the DNI report is provided 45 days after the election, ie, 18 Dec 2020 under EO 13848, I hope Gov Kemp can avoid prison. Not.

      In essence, the GA result means nothing, except as grounds for prosecution.

      Ultimately, this will go to the House under the XII Amendment and 3 USC 15, where 36 Republican States will defeat 14 Democrat states and Trump will be President until 2024.

      Lots of Kabuki Theater out there. Constitution Drives the Dates and Legalities. Nobody can change that now. 3 USC 15 constrains how States may act. Watch the play till the end. Lots of people are going to prison, Trump will be President, this crap will never happen again because nobody else wants to “go down”.

    I want evidence. What the computer ballot tabulating system and software was originally designed to do is very intreresting, but not proof of what happened in the U.S.

    Nothing Rudi Giuliani and Sidney Powell said so far, including today, has any chance of reversing the election results by mid-December.

    They did not have to present specific evidence to the public, or to the press. They WILL have to convince a judge(s). That means any time talking with the press is wasted time.

    I’m not impressed, and I believe there WAS an unprecedented amount of election fraud. The simple reason is understood by observing how the Democrats have treated Trump for the past five years — they would lie and cheat o get rid of him — and think they were doing the nation a big favor. They lied about Russian Collusion for five years!

    The huge number of absentee ballots, especially those that were not specifically requested by voters, with no signature checking by handwriting experts, and vote counting machines/software than can be “fixed … it will be nearly impossible to prove election fraud in just six weeks.

    The 2020 voting process was set up to make fraud easy

    The Dems and the fake press are reading from their fake script. It is literally as if they cannot imagine what is going to happen. The idiots assumed the CIA would be able to hide the evidence of their mass election conspiracy. They could not imagine the consequences if the CIA sever that was in Germany, was taken as evidence by the US military.

    If there is evidence of FBI, CIA, Dems and China involvement in mass treason… this will not be Trump vs the Evil plan. The US people would support the US military if they provided evidence of mass treason over the fake press and the Dems.

    The US military have developed a non-political ‘system’ (staffed by military officers), that is AI assisted to replace congress. The original idea was to protect against a mass loss of congressional leaders.

    However logically, if it looked as the entire US political system was failing this new ‘technology’ system which I believe has been tested, would solve the US problems, while the US military was investigating mass treason. So this is sort of win-win for the US. And lose-lose for those on the side of chaos and fighting.

    The Republicans have seen the AI assisted non-political system work and it gets to practical real solutions to US problems that would be absolutely politically Impossible.

    ….. The US ‘state’ response to a coordinate attack on the US …. ….would logically be a temporary replacement of the US Fed by a nonpolitical ‘system’ which will be staffed by military personnel with rotation. The temporary but highly effective replacement for the US Fed will remain in place until the Military investigation is complete and the conspiracy removed.

    The Military investigation will use military ‘justice’ no juries, all lawyers are military.

    Republicans will monitor the new system and help but they will be at arm’s length.

    Trump will remain as head of state, if I remember correctly he is going sever for more than 4 years (as the US China undeclared war is still going on) and the US will never return to old system.

        Peter,

        This is an attack on the US State, not a political game. Are you awake? Is covid real? Why is covid so novel? Why is covid so contagious? Why is the world press suddenly acting as if it is controlled by something?

        The US military is appropriately doing their job. There is a investigation underway. More time for the investigation, better answers.

        The US Military is going to wait until mid-January (as long as possible to give more time for the investigation and time for public beliefs to start to change. There will be specific releases of counter information, to prepare the public… … for a Military spokesperson to release a synopsis of their covid/China investigation which is going to include details about the covid virus and its release and the China sponsored plan which involved the Dems, FBI, and CIA to interfere in the US election.

        This is not an argument or hype. AI technology has advanced year by year.

        It is a fact that there has been a practical advancement in multiple ‘AI’ fields in the last 10 years.

        There was a HBO program a few years ago on AIs that discussed the fact that virus ‘AI’ technical problem had been solved and that this was the first real AI breakthrough. (Same HBO program, noted China has 40 AI projects and interviewed the person who lead the China AI initiative, including the general AI which is what the public think of when they think of AI.)

        The AI HBO documentary program interviewed the scientist who help crack the virus simulation AI problem.

        The first real ‘AI’ breakthrough, was virus simulation and the second part of the AI virus problem, simulation of the human body.

        The AI virus simulation enables perfect simulation and evolution of a software representation of any virus. The second part of this ‘AI’ problem required the perfect simulation of all of the bioactive regions of the body that respond to a virus. That ‘AI’ problem was also solved. As noted in the HBO documentary.

        So with AI Virus/Human body simulation software and a very powerful computer, some country has engineered the covid virus which is a complex mixture of virus code from different animals.

        The covid virus has been engineered to anesthetize the throat, to enable covid to cause a throat infection without pain. Covid starts in the throat and then moves to the other organs. This novel covid feature is the reason why covid spreads so easy. Our bodies produce pain when the virus is attacking the body which if there was pain would get covid sick people to know their are sick and isolate.

        The covid virus feature has designed and tested in software.

        The second covid feature is in 0.05% of the population who have a specific genetic mutation covid cause their body to produce anti bodies that attack their own body. This novel covid feature cause the covid victims to have long term, weird, difficult to find and solve, health problems. This covid feature was added to make us afraid of covid.

        And of course, covid also causes blood clots in organs in a novel way. Covid has been designed to cause our immune system to malfunction which causes the blood clots. Very imaginative.

    I absolutely and truly love this blog when it comes to climate change, but this post lacks rigor and accuracy. This is nowhere near anything that would stand scrutiny in court. Screenshots of text (unsigned) don’t mean much, it is just text and it begs so many questions. Do we have a full copy of the affidavit (showing the name)? Does this show in any way that votes have been switched in the 2020 US election (and in the relevant states)? Was Smartmatic technology used in the key swing states that determined Biden’s victory? It does not appear they were used in any of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, or North Carolina for that matters. The whole post can be distilled to one thing only, that voting machines could have been hacked – which is hardly news. Also, voting machines typically generate a printed ballot of the actual (correct) vote, which is then cast into a ballot box (and counted). Any mismach between the counted vote and the recorded (shifted?) vote would be instantly picked up at counting (which is just one level of safeguard against fraud). It will be interesting to see how this whole theory will play out in court (if it ever gets there).

      Why would Sidney Powell, drowning in a river of affadivits, take an unsigned one to the national media?

      Perhaps it’s not news to you that voting machines can be hacked in an undetectable way, and also that they were designed to be hacked, specifically for tossing election outcomes, but this is news to a nation that was told last week that this was the most secure election in history.

      And if you read carefully, I specifically mentioned and linked — that Dominion machines bought and use the subsidiary company of Smartmatic, meaning they have essentially the same core program, and they were used in all the swing states.

      How would mismatches be detected if there is no manual audited recount?

          In Arizona, one of the complaints is that the Republican representative did NOT sign off on the approval of the voting machines for that state.

          Are you continuing to dismiss over 200 affidavits as not evidence because sworn statements (for which you can be held criminally liable if proven false) are not “physical”? The whole point of an elaborate fraud is to make tracking physical evidence difficult.

        The full affidavit is not available, and Sidney Powell did not make it available. I guess it will be public record once it is in court. Until then, hard to reach any conclusion from those extracts.

        Any machine used in any election could have been hacked. Surely this is hardly surprising, yet a long shot from demonstrating they have been hacked this year, and to what extent. Stating that this was the most secure election in history does not mean that the voting machines are hackproof. And for the record, the manual recount in Georgia has confirmed the result of the machine count.

        If there is any solid truth in Trump’s lawyers challenges, they would have scored some solid wins in court. So far, they have lost 32 out of their 33 cases. And counting. From an attorney’s standpoint, their strategy is crystal clear – file multiple time-wasting court cases (perfectly knowing they are hopeless) with the sole intent to delay certification of the votes in each key state until after the state’s deadline, hoping to then be able to have each state’s legislature (Republican) appoint pro-Trump electors. Now I believe that is the real attempt to subvert the election.

          Rudy Giuliani (See my next post) says they only have three cases running. The other cases were put in by private individuals. They’ve only pulled one case back because they got the outcome they wanted.

          The most massive voter fraud (11,000 reports of election inconsistencies and red flags) and you somehow think that Trumps team should not only have gone through all that but had it resolved already in the courts in two weeks?

          They have not even had the opportunity to present their evidence in court, and lawyers for Trump have had death threats against them and their children, but you think the side that prevent observers and use intimidation should be “trusted”?

    Biden won by 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232 and he won the popular vote by almost 6 million votes. That is a victory so significant that no counting errors or unsubstantiated allegations of fraud can possibly overcome. Trump needs to resign now as leadership is required to handle the coronavirus crisis. Taxpayers shouldn’t be paying for Trump’s golfing holiday.

      They gave their reasons why it’s too dangerous to provide all the evidence to the public. The lives of the whistle blowers and their families are at stake. Some have already been threatened. Also, as they explained the amount of material evidence is huge so it takes time. They need to prepare it properly before presenting it the the courts. Less complex cases than this have taken months to be decided. All will be revealed in due course through the courts where it should be. The public forum is not the place to judge such matters. SO, let’s wait and see. I won’t jump the gun and say Trump will stay although so far it appears he has a good chance he will. Time will tell.

              “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result.

              “When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.

              “Other security measures like pre-election testing, state certification of voting equipment, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) certification of voting equipment help to build additional confidence in the voting systems used in 2020.

              “While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too. When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.”

            Both Palmer and Hartmann changed their votes on certification to “yes” Tuesday after strong criticism and appeals from citizens participating in the board meeting over Zoom.

            But in the affidavits signed late Wednesday, both said they feel they made those votes under pressure and false pretenses and would now like to rescind their votes. Palmer and Hartmann said they were promised a comprehensive and independent audit of Wayne County precincts and counting boards where the number of votes recorded as cast in the poll books did not match the number of ballots counted.

      If you want me to cover the pandemic and US politics and Climate Change you could donate funding equivalent to a leading ABC reporter and I could afford a cleaner, a secretary and a researcher. Until then, with the resources I have, I’ll cover the issues that are the most important to our freedom and lifestyle as I see it. What’s worse than a global pandemic — the loss of the the greatest democracy on Earth. The incredible Soviet-like censorship of the worst political scandals in my lifetime.

      If you’d like a refund of all you’ve donated I’ll happily provide it.

      PS in Late October I gave the reasons that the US and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere would be headed for a dreadful caseload as the cold weather ramped up. I was right again. You can thank me anytime you like.

      PPS: If you want to excuse Pfizer for risking lives and playing petty politics that says a lot about you and how much you “care” about American lives. Decisions about restrictions and strategies to deal with Covid were being made all over the world in late October and early November, with billions of dollars, businesses and lives at stake and you think it’s “OK” for Pfizer to hide the $2b they got from the Trump team, to not stick to their reporting agreement, and to hide from the world a success that when announced changed world markets?
