US Election rigging and leftist crimes against the American people Post #33

As per, we will populate this post to up to around 10 items, and then start a new one. So if this post is under 10 items please check back now and again, and thank you to all who are sending in materials that go to the point. That the US election was cheated.

1. On Trump’s executive order of 2018 concerning foreign interference of US elections and how it relates to the 2020 election

2. Bucher says ‘toldya so’ after software maker takes blame in Wellington vote count mess

The supplier of Palm Beach County’s voting and tabulating equipment says a software “shortcoming” led to votes being assigned to the wrong candidates and the elections office declaring the wrong winners in two recent Wellington council races.

County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher, who insisted a computer glitch rather than human error was to blame for the fiasco, claimed vindication after Dominion Voting Systems released its statement.

Wellington and 15 other municipalities held elections on March 13. In Wellington, the ballot was set up with the mayor’s race first, the Seat 1 council race second and the Seat 4 council race third.

Unbeknownst to elections officials, the vote totals for the mayor’s race ended up being reported and later certified as the results of the Seat 1 race. The Seat 1 vote totals were certified as the Seat 4 results and the Seat 4 vote totals were certified as the mayoral results.

The problem wasn’t discovered until six days after the election, during a routine audit. The audit found no similar problems in the 15 other cities that held elections.

The fact that the audit is conducted after winners are certified is a requirement of state law. Bucher said her office “will be working with the state to ask for the necessary law changes.”

3. LAWSUIT: Georgia Sec of State Signed Illegal Deal With Democrats Changing How Ballots Are Processed

Georgia’s Secretary of State illegally entered into an agreement with Democrats in that state to fundamentally alter the rules before the election

As Georgia gets ready to execute one of the most critical elections in recent American history, questions about how election officials are processing at least one segment of the ballots has erupted onto the scene and a potent lawsuit has been filed.

On March 6, 2020, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, took it upon himself to quietly sign off on a legal agreement with officials from the Democrat Party of Georgia, the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, that would fundamentally alter the way absentee ballots were processed across the State of Georgia.

The attorney handling the legal representation for the Democrat organizations was none other than Marc Elias from Perkins Coie. If the name rings a bell it’s because he is Hillary Clinton’s consigliere. Elias and Perkins Coie have been handling legal wrangling for Democrat election operations across the country.

4. This one requires parsing and we have not done it. It is presented in case anyone wishes to have a look.

5. Georgia Awards $107M Voting Machine Contract to Dominion

(TNS) — Georgia officials awarded a contract for 30,000 new voting machines to Dominion Voting on Monday, scrapping the state’s 17-year-old electronic voting equipment and replacing it with touchscreens that print out paper ballots.

The $107 million contract will switch Georgia from its longtime elections company, Election Systems & Software, following complaints about malfunctioning machines and unverifiable results during the November midterm election.

The announcement is a defining moment for Georgia’s elections, reintroducing paper ballots to Election Day voting for the first time since the state converted to electronic ballots in 2002 following the controversial presidential election between Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Al Gore.

(There have been some occasions where communists bested American or Western methods. Three I can think of as examples might be when I think it was Kennedy offered to give ANY Cuban who could get to the US asylum and Castro opened his prisons and asylums and sent the worst and the sickest people to Florida. During the cold war, when Americans were building radios with transistors which could be jammed by the Soviets, but the soviets used tube radios which, apparently and for reasons I don’t know and don’t make any sense to me actually, could not, apparently be jammed by the West…

but there is one instance where the Soviets really did one thing right.

During the space race to the Moon, the US spent, if memory serves, something like USD $1M developing a pen that could write in space, which they did. But that was a lot of money. The Soviets just went with a pencil.

If the US were to get rid of these voting machines and sharpies and just give everyone a ball point pen and a piece of paper, this election would have been settled by November 4. Especially if they made sure everyone voting was legally allowed to do so.)

  1. What about Canada
    We have the Dominion system all over
    Soros met with Trudeau recently
    Was it about his next win through the Dominion system
    Too bad the conservatives are too fucking thick to do anything
    To protect our democracy
    All these machines should be removed from Elections CAnada

    • No question Trudeau cheated in a myriad of ways. Its impossible to think that Canadians would vote for him after his record, just like its impossible to think they would vote for Biden beyond the few who hate Trump enough to bother.

      • “If the US were to get rid of these voting machines and sharpies and just give everyone a ballpoint pen and a piece of paper, this election would have been settled by November 4. Especially if they made sure everyone voting was legally allowed to do so.)”

        Yes, yes, yes, yes!!! Unless you’re literally unable to walk and can legitimately apply for a mail-in ballot, then either get your ass down to the polling place or shut the “blank” up because you’re too lazy to vote and you don’t deserve the privilege. What happened to the word “no”? If you can’t be bothered to spend a couple of hours for your democracy then you simply couldn’t be bothered to vote and that’s not my fault, it’s yours…

        I blame McDonald’s managers who bring free french fries and burgers to troublemakers and never, ever say “no” to their beloved customers then fire any employee who tries to stop a robbery-in-progress. I also blame school administrators who take one frivolous stupid little complaint from one maladjusted grousing woman and act as if it’s an edict from almighty God. And I blame politicians who let rioters and criminals go because it might cost them votes if they enforce the law equally…

        Time to get back to basics. No more computers or anything more electronic than a light bulb or a coffee maker. Pretend it’s 1945 and just do it! And if anybody tries to bar official observers from seeing what’s going on should be put in jail for serious crimes against democracy.

      • Scheer was the problem. He projected weakness so much so he made Justin Trudeau seem determined and strong. Scheer: A dimple-faced leader with no backbone.

        O’Toole has a problem: baldness. Optics are very important in politics.

        The common voter is unaware of a political party’s policies. They vote with their eyes.

        • Ain’t that the truth…? So damn depressing… I haven’t met a fellow Canadian who knew anything at all about current events in years, from climate change to gluten intolerance to systemic racism to LGBGT complaints. Everybody is so lost in these ridiculous fake-issues – also known as “hoaxes” – that they have lost touch with reality completely. Like, I’ve never heard Donald Trump say a racist word in his life, and yet they are convinced he is a flaming racist because they’ve been told what to think. What a bunch of morons. “Critical thinking” has been replaced by “critical theory…”

          Oh, but I’ve yet to meet anybody who doesn’t hate Trudeau…

          The left has convinced themselves that their position is so important that all methods are on the table. They liken the situation to shooting Adolf Hitler before he could take over the Chancelry. To question climate change is to murder the entire planet even though there is no clear indication whatsoever that CO2 has any effect on the Earth’s weather, only the words of money-grubbing UN liars waiting to cash in on the trillion-dollar “Green Fund”…

    • Maybe North Americans will studiously and wholeheartedly reject Cultural Revolution Communism only. after we experience it.
      I am channeling B Franklin.

    • Elections Canada debunked the story. They use hand-counted paper ballots only.

      On the other hand, on certain provincial and municipal levels, Dominion is present, most notably in Alberta.

      The Conservative Party of Canada uses Dominion for their candidate nomination. That would explain Maxime Bernier losing by 1% and all votes quickly destroyed.

  2. 5 – The jammable and non jammable radios, the EMP pulse from a nuclear explosion fries the transistors and integrated circuits while the old fashion tubes recover from the pulse. The soviets used tubes a lot longer then we did but that was because they had trouble manufacturing the transistors. When they get a factory that could make reliable transistors they switched because of the lower weight and lower power requirement.

    • A high-level electronics technician friend of mine assured me that things like the “Dew-line” and stealth fighters and such are full of heavy-duty tubes for that very reason. He knows that because he’s one of the guys they send up to work on the stuff… An F-16 isn’t going to fall out of the sky over an EMP attack but your car likely won’t work anymore…

      • Surround the chips and transistors with a good Faraday cage and they will survive, there are even ways to ensure the power grid will survive but you car and home electronics are toast.

        • Good thing I have a couple of “Faraday cages” in the trunk…:). Did you just make that up? I have never heard of a “Faraday cage but I’m going to put in an order for a couple of dozen”…lol…

    • Legacy to this fact is a bit of trivia. I recently had to change the vacuum tubes in my son’s guitar amplifier. I was told the ones in it that quit were no good Chinese made. We replaced them with “better” Russian tubes. They pretty much own the after market world-wide.

  3. ¸NOVEMBER 2014 – Scytl has all the tools it needs for election fraud

    Free Press readers may be familiar with Scytl, the promoter of online and mobile voting, and their apparent connections to the intelligence community. Renewed research into Scytl has revealed new connections to the intelligence community, new market positioning, and new opportunities for both personalized surveillance and electronic election fraud.

    Scytl’s 2012 entry into the American election market occurred through the purchase of SOE software, a Tampa based manufacturer of election management and reporting software known as the Clarity suite. Scytl initially maintained essentially a front address in Virginia while digesting SOE during the the 2012 election cycle. Since then there has been a pattern of SOE rebranding and reorganizing itself along with a merger and new set of strategic partnerships.

    Through looking at Scytl’s ownership and investors, we can see a more frightening pattern of investment and market synergy. In 2012 the Free Press broke the news of the connection between one Scytl’s parent companies, Nauta Capital, and Carrier IQ, a maker of mobile phone applications with obvious spyware uses. Nauta’s expansion into this market sector along with an expansion into mobile devices, voice bio-metrics, social network monitoring, online gaming, and cloud computing should raise an eyebrow.

    SOE is no longer SOE. SOE is now calling itself “SOE, A Scytl Company.” There are no other Scytl companies in the US that have been identified at the time of this writing. It would appear from this rebranding that there is the intention of there being more “Scytl Companies” in the future. This rebranding may be PR deflection of Scytl’s overseas origin and ownership, or it may have a dual purpose.

    Representatives of the Ohio Green Party traveled to Tampa in order to meet with SOE and purchase custom software for tracking voter registrations and other election management tasks. SOE’s name is not on the office building’s marquee or directory and garnering face time with company officials proved difficult. During the eventual interview the SOE spokesperson said that the company only does “custom work for governments” and referred the party to “Scytl” for “specialized election work.”

    SOE saw a period of management chaos after being purchased by Scytl. Reviews online of working there tell vague tales of revolving doors in some of the top offices combines with rapidly shifting project priorities. This chaotic pattern seems to have changed and there is now a clear management team in place. This management team has a number of principals that stand out.

    Starting the list is Pere Valles, who came directly from Scytl. He is now CEO. He is Scytl’s man running SOE. He is also on the board of Scytl by virtue of representing the interest of a key investor in Scytl, Balderton Capital. Balderton is a British not entirely spun-off spin-off of Benchmark Capital that has a history of investment in tech companies of interest to the intelligence community. For instance, Benchmark has invested in Nextdoor.com, which Vulcan Capital (Paul Allen’s venture capital firm) also invested in. Vulcan Capital is also invested in Scytl. The Free Press has done previous reporting on Nextdoor as a nexus of investment for intelligence community related venture capital firms.

    Valles was previously with three other companies. Prior to Balderton, he was Vice President and CFO of Globalnet, a telecom provider. He appears to have been brought in to effect the sale of that company to Titan L-3, a major defense and intelligence contractor. The sale of Globalnet, two years in the making, was finalized just as the Abu-Gharrib scandal broke in 2004. One of Titan’s employees was a translator at the prison and was exposed in subsequent reports to have raped at least one juvenile prisoner. He was not fired.

    Prior to Globalnet, Valles worked for the accounting firm KPMG and prior to that he was a principal at Diamond Cluster consulting, along with all of the founders of Nauta Capital.

    Scytl’s Vice President of Communications is Michelle Shafer, who is the quintessential voting machine industry shill. She has previously served in a similar capacity with Sequoia Voting Systems, Hart Intercivic and Calibre Systems. The last of the list is a defense industry firm that made a brief attempt to enter the election industry through the delivery of absentee ballots to armed forces personnel abroad.

    Another SOE Vice President is Brian O’Connor. O’Connor came to SOE recently from Crossmatch Technologies. Crossmatch is a provider of biometric technologies to the defense department and department of homeland security. Four current executives at Crossmatch came from another biometric technology company, L-1 Identity Solutions. L-1 was founded by Robert LaPenta. LaPenta is also one of the founders of and still a major stockholder in L-3 Communications, the parent company of Titan L-3 communications.

    Prior to working at Crossmatch, O’Connor worked for Sequoia Voting Systems and Global Elections Systems just prior to the latter’s acquisition by Diebold. Diebold later spun Global Election Systems off as Premier Elections Systems. The later was then purchased by Election Systems and Software (ES & S). Federal anti-trust regulations forced ES & S to spin Premier off again. It was then purchased by Canada-based Dominion Voting Systems. A month later Dominion also purchased Sequoia.

    SOE has expanded its market share through at least one merger. In 2013 SOE acquired Oklahoma based Maxim Consulting. Maxim has offices in Oklahoma City and Dallas and was an IT firm specializing in Oracle database management and integration. Their entry into the elections industry was voter registration management software. Their largest contract was with the Cherokee Nation. They executed this contract in partnership with Texas-based voting machine manufacturer Hart InterCivic.

    The merger gives SOE a complete set of products from Registration, through ballot production and election management, to vote counting and tabulation and election night reporting. Although the relationship between Hart and SOE is not clear post merger, Michelle Shafer’s former tenure there as well as her continued residence in Austin where Hart is based bodes well for the continuation of their relationship.

    Scytl also has a strategic partnership with ES & S. Thus through only two executives and a strategic partnership, Scytl’s management team has a relationship or an inner working knowledge of every major voting systems manufacturer active in the American market.

    The Free Press’s research into Scytl began with noting the ownership of Scytl by Nauta and Nauta’s ownership of Carrier IQ, a cell phone spyware manufacturer. Carrier IQ is not the only mobile phone applications company that Nauta has invested in.

    One of Nauta’s a principals, Dominic Endicott, previously worked for Booz Allen Hamilton. Booz Allen is a major defense and intelligence contractor. They employed Edward Snowden and subcontracted him out to the NSA, for instance. Endicott’s tenure at Booz Allen was in their mobile and wireless practice, interfacing with almost every major cellular manufacturer and service provider.

    In addition to being Nauta’s man on Carrier IQ board, Endicott is also Nauta’s man on the board of Mobile Aware, another maker of cell phone applications. Mobile Aware’s practice centers around customer care applications. These applications help a customer diagnose problems, contact technical support, pay their bills online, even give other subscribers minutes. The surveillance potential as well as the intrusion and spyware potential of such a set of applications is unparalleled in commercial products.

    Nauta is also invested in GreatCall, which operates as Jitterbug. Jitterbug is a cell phone manufacturer specializing in making cell phones for Senior Citizens. The products feature louder speakers and larger buttons as well as improved customer diagnostics.

    Scytl’s technology is designed to allow a user to vote using a phone. Scytl’s sister companies record the keystrokes made on the phone, provide customer care including billing and provide better access for seniors. These technologies together allow a persons’ cellular usage habits as well their metadata to be kept, and thus build a predictive user profile.

    People talk on the phone. A person’s voice is unique. A person’s voice can be recorded. One of Nauta’s investments also can use a person’s unique voice as identification. Nauta is invested in a voice recognition software company called AGNITiO. AGNITiO, like Scytl was founded by a former professor in Spain. Nauta has two of its principals on AGNITiO’s board, Carles Ferrer and Al Sisto. Carles Ferrer is also on the board of Scytl. His previous places of employment include TRW, now owned by defense contractor Northrup Grumman. Al Sistos was formerly chief operating officer of RSA Data Security, a major encryption software manufacturer. Another Nauta’s guy on AGNITiO’s board is Francis C. Harvey. Harvey served as secretary of the Army from 2004 to 2007 at the height of the Iraq War and during the Abu-Gharrib scandal. According to his biography Harvey also served on the board of three companies owned by the Bush family friendly Carlyle Group and held a vice-chairmen position at two of them. The Carlyle group had an ownership interest in Booz Allen Hamilton, where Nauta principal Dominic Endicott formerly worked.

    In addition to voice and mobile data, Nauta is invested in social media gaming. They are an investor in Social Point Gaming, the third largest maker of games for facebook. These games and interaction give a gaming administrator deep insight into the habits and personalities of the players through monitoring their interactions and the associated chats. An earlier key investor in Social Point, Greylock Capital Partners, has strong ties to the intelligence community. Greylock’s chairman, Howard Cox, also sits on the board of In-Q-Tel. In-Q-Tel is a non-profit venture capital firm run by the CIA. Greylock also invested in Nextdoor.com along with Benchmark Capital, the American sister firm of Scytl investor Balderton. Scytl investor Vulcan Capital is also invested in Nextdoor, which is a neighborhood based social networking platform.

    Although Greylock is not invested in Scytl they do seem to have some interest in elections. During the most recent general election, a Greylock partner, Reid Hoffman, invested $500,000 in a State Assembly candidate David Chiu in San Francisco. This figure represents nearly $3 per voter in the district. The previous office holder in that district, Tom Ammiano, spent a little more than half as much in his entire previous campaign. Ammiano is not eligible to run again because of term limits.

    Given all the data that Social Point, Carrier IQ, Nextdoor, Mobile Aware, AGNITO and Jitterbug could generate, a surveillance regime would need analysis tools. Fortuitously, Nauta is invested in BrandWatch. BrandWatch allows companies to follow their brand through multiple social media platforms to see what the public thinks about their products, what advertising and concepts resonate with the public, and who the opinion leaders are. The British television network SkyAtlantic uses Brandwatch to fine tune its marketing of Game of Thrones. Balderton Capital joined Nauta investing in Brandwatch and has a seat on its board.

    Nauta is also invested in iJento, another marketing data analysis company that specializes in web analytics. Their web claims they provide “Multi-Channel Customer Intelligence.” Nauta is represented on their board by both Carles Ferrer and Al Sistos.

    Scytl and Brandwatch are not the only places that Balderton and Nauta cross paths. In order to store and process the data generated by the sundry tools products and services offered by Scytl’s many sister companies, an organization would be almost forced to seek a solution through cloud computing. Nauta and Balderton together have made a strategic investment that would handle such a contingency. That investment is in the Spanish cloud computing company Abiquo, where Nauta is again represented by both Carles Ferrer and Al Sistos.

    The complete package of Social Point, Carrier IQ, Nextdoor, Mobile Aware, AGNITO and Jitterbug, iJento, Brandwatch, and Abiquo would give a malicious actor all they need to rig an election that used Scytl and SOE’s software packages. CarrierIQ and Mobile Aware provide backdoors through Scytl’s security. The rest can be used to build a set of predictive profile voters which can be used in deciding which votes to change.

    Ballot tampering is a part of election rigging. Voter suppression is another critical component. SOE has an app for that.

    SOE’s flagship product before its acquisition by Scytl was the Clarity ePollbook. The Clarity Pollbook is an electronic pollbook built on the Android tablet platform. Its nearest competitor, one built by ES & S, is also running on an Android tablet. The security vulnerabilities in the ES & S product were documented by the Free Press in a previous article. For brevity, these tablets can be attacked via SD card, USB thumb drive, bluetooth, cellular network, backup subversion, internet and the cloud they perform additional backups too.

    Both companies would likely defend their product by claiming that the secure socket layer (SSL) encryption would protect them from eavesdropping and thus a man in the middle attack. It is not known what version of Android ES & S is using, but many of SOE’s Clarity devices are using Android 4.1.

    Android 4.1 is vulnerable to a well publicized weakness in its SSL suite called HeartBleed. Although the Heartbleed attack was fixed on the server side, potentially millions of clients are still vulnerable without vigilant updates. Some 61% of all Android devices made run Android 4.1. A Forbes columnist said of the weakness “Some might argue that [Heartbleed] is the worst vulnerability found (at least in terms of its potential impact) since commercial traffic began to flow on the Internet.” The USA Today reported that the NSA was aware of this weakness some two years before it was discovered by civilian researchers. It is not known how many Clarity devices remain unpatched and in circulation at various county boards of election around the nation.

    Subverting the pollbooks would allow a malicious attacker to tamper with a voter registration to deny a vote. An attacker could also mark a voter as having turned in an absentee ballot and thus already voted, thus denying them a chance to actually vote at the polls.

    Combining this voter suppression potential with the overlapping predictive capabilities of Nauta’s other investments and you have the potential for a complete package of surveillance, suppression and fraud.

    • I saw non-military speaker verification trials in use for commercial building access in Houston, TX in 1983, which is almost 40 years ago. I met with a university researcher who independently duplicated the process and was marketing it to credit card companies in 1986. This is my limited experience, tangential to the article, but permitting me to say that the article’s description of tech achievements sounds fancy, but is probably commonplace now. The article confounds two terms: speech recognition and speaker verification. A speech system needs speech samples so it can train to verify who is speaking.

  4. Trump Says 2020 Election Was Unconstitutional
    By Zachary Stieber
    November 16, 2020 Updated: November 16, 2020
    Print

    President Donald Trump asserted in a series of new tweets that the 2020 election violated the U.S. Constitution.

    Trump, a Republican vying for a second term, started on Sunday, when he wrote: “Many of the court cases being filed all over the Country are not ours, but rather those of people that have seen horrible abuses. Our big cases showing the unconstitutionality of the 2020 Election, & the outrage of things that were done to change the outcome, will soon be filed!”

    The president on Monday took aim at two battleground states and the way officials there ran the elections.

    Trump repeated claims that Republican poll watchers were blocked from observing ballot counting in Pennsylvania, whose 20 electoral votes he won in 2016. Trump is trailing challenger Joe Biden in the Keystone State by about 69,000 votes, or 1 percent.

    Trump then continued with criticism of Georgia’s recount.

  5. “If the US were to get rid of these voting machines and sharpies and just give everyone a ball point pen and a piece of paper, this election would have been settled by November 4.”

    Indeed. As an example, “high-tech” Israel has a very low-tech voting system: paper slips. There’s a tray of slips, one for each party. A slip is grabbed and put in an envelope. The envelope then goes into a box. I understand that France does something similar.

    It’s very hard to fiddle and anyone can understand it. Because they use a 1-3 letter code for each party, even an illiterate person can memorize what theirs looks like and vote based on that.

    The few that are allowed absentee votes do so based on a double envelope system.

    It’s crude, it’s simple, and it works reasonably well.

    New Brunswick (Canada) also has something that works fairly well: optical scan sheets. The machine counts it, but in the case of questions, the original sheet is kept for verification – that kind of electronic “assist” makes sense, because it leads to faster results, while still allowing for verification.

    That such simple systems aren’t favoured says a lot about the motivations of those who push for the alternatives, I’d say.

  6. Trump Campaign Lawyer Says She Was Harassed, Threatened by Attorney at Opposing Firm

    A spokesman for President Donald Trump’s campaign and legal team said a lawyer working on their behalf in Pennsylvania has received threats and harassment.

    According to Tim Murtagh on Monday, the lawyer received “abusive emails” and calls, as well as “physical [and] economic threats.”

    “One voicemail was from a lawyer at the firm representing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, running far afoul of standards of professional conduct,” he said, including the filing. “It has been turned over to the court.”

    • People usualy react when someone says something close to the truth; otherwise why say “back off”? “Martians illegally voted” would not get a reaction.

  7. Voting Works

    VotingWorks is a left-of-center non-profit provider of voting machines and open-source election verification software. In November 2019, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced it would partner with VotingWorks to pilot the use of its vote verification software in six battleground states during the November 2020 election.

    In April 2020, responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, VotingWorks announced it would be providing technological assistance to states and local jurisdictions seeking to scale-up voting by mail opportunities.

    Voting works was created within and incubated by the left-leaning Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT). CDT’s major donors include large left-of-center foundations, including George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society, the Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. [5] [6]

    Background

    VotingWorks was created within and incubated by the left-leaning Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) in December 2018 and later and spun off as a separate non-profit. [7] [8] CDT’s major donors are large technology firms, such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft; and large left-of-center foundations, including George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society, the Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. [9] [10]

    VotingWorks builds voting machines and audit software tools to intended to verify that votes cast on a paper-based voting system are correctly tabulated. [11] It publishes some of the code it writes on GitHub, a Microsoft subsidiary that hosts and promotes open-source software. [12]

    One of these tools is Arlo, an open-source software designed to perform a risk-limiting audit after an election is completed. A risk limiting audit spot checks a sample of verified paper ballots against the results tabulated by electronic voting machines to verify the sample was counted accurately. In November 2019 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced it would partner with VotingWorks to pilot the use of Arlo in six battleground states during the November 2020 election. [13] [14]

    In 2019, VotingWorks ran polling machines in Choctaw County, Mississippi. Mississippi is one of the few states that uses voting machines that have not been certified by federally authorities, and has no method for state certification. A report from ProPublica portrayed the lack of federal certification as an advantage for VotingWorks:[15]

    For VotingWorks and the election officials in Mississippi, the fact that the machines had not been federally certified was a plus, not a risk. Set up nearly two decades ago to try and improve the reliability of voting systems, the federal certification process is today seen by many as an impediment to the kind of technological progress urgently needed in the field.

    The process — overseen by the federal Election Assistance Commission — is both lengthy and costly. And the long track record over the years of election scandals and controversies makes clear it hasn’t been all that effective. [16]

    2020 Vote By Mail Work

    In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, VotingWorks announced it would be helping states scale-up voting by mail. An April 2020 news release announced VotingWorks was building VxMail, a set of tools to help implement and deploy vote-by mail with services such as ballot printing, envelope stuffing, mailing, ballot receipt, signature verification, and ballot tabulation.VxMail is designed to assist jurisdictions that previously had only a few hundred ballots to deal with manually, but now may have thousands or tens of thousands.

    COVID-19: VotingWorks will help states scale vote-by-mail.

    April 9th, 2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest challenge humanity has faced in at least a generation. We are in awe of the healthcare workers on the front lines of this emergency. We are deeply thankful for all the grocery store workers stocking our shelves, the teachers teaching our kids remotely, the neighbors shopping for their elderly community members, and all the other helpers. Given our work in voting, we’re particularly thankful for the election officials and poll workers now faced with one of the most daunting election challenges we’ve ever seen. We at VotingWorks are eager to do our part, however small it may be in comparison to the real heroes.

    So let’s talk about the US General Election of 2020. The consensus we’re hearing from election officials and voting policy experts alike—David Becker in the Washington Post, Nate Persily and Charles Stewart in Lawfare, and most recently Charles Stewart again in MarketWatch—is that, while we should leave lasting policy changes to a later date, we’ll need more vote-by-mail on an emergency basis this year. We think these are wise recommendations.

    For some states that already have a significant proportion of vote-by-mail, the needed adjustment will be the relatively manageable task of scaling up existing processes by 20–30%. For other states that historically have low rates of vote-by-mail, either because of policy or norms, the job ahead requires scaling by a factor of 10 or more, which is quite a bit more difficult. We’re particularly concerned about the small and medium-sized election jurisdictions in those states, many of which currently have a manual process for handling a small number of mail ballots, a process that may not be able to scale up as needed.

    To help those jurisdictions, we are building VxMail, a comprehensive set of tools to help implement & deploy vote-by-mail, including ballot printing, envelope stuffing, mailing, ballot receipt, signature verification, and ballot tabulation. This isn’t meant to run a large vote-by-mail operation, for which the tools already exist. Rather, VxMail is meant to help election officials automate their process for 2,000 to 50,000 ballots where, to date, they only had a few hundred to deal with manually. We’re making all of our progress on VxMail public.

    Ultimately, we believe in our hearts that the folks best positioned to run this election well are America’s election officials. They’ve always been the unsung heroes of Democracy. We’re not here to tell them what to do. We’re not here to change policy. We’re good at building tools, and that’s what we’ll do: offer election officials some new tools, and take our lead from them on how best to make these tools helpful. We’ve started a few conversations with interested officials already, and we are always interested in more. If you’re an election official and are interested in discussing, please email us.

  8. the gateway pundit – Trump Lawyer Tweets Article Alleging Philly Mob Boss May Reveal How They Stole The Election In Exchange For Full Expungement Of His Criminal Record

    From the Buffalo Chronicle – An associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden. The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work. They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

    Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers. They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

    The ballots were purchased in cash.

    It’s thought that Democratic Party operatives working inside Philadelphia’s election office provided Merlino with crates of raw ballots just hours before polls closed on election night, which he transported to two private households in South Philadelphia. By 10 p.m. that night Merlino’s operation was already generating more than 3,000 ballots per hour, which quickly scaled to more than 6,000 ballots per hour before midnight.

    But now, Merlino might just be willing to flip on Biden — in primetime Congressional testimony — if President Donald J. Trump is willing to issue the longtime mobster a full expungement of his decades-long criminal record. And, of course, Merlino wants to be pardoned for the election fraud itself and any crimes to which he may incriminate himself during his testimony.

    Jordan Sekulow appeared on Newsmax this morning where he discussed the latest update on what’s happening related to illegal votes in Pennsylvania. If there’s nothing to this article in the Buffalo Chronicle, why would Trump’s lawyer tweet it?

    =====================================================
    Buffalo chronicle – EXCLUSIVE: How a Philly mob boss stole the election — and why he may flip on Joe Biden

    The innermost circles of the American mafia are abuzz. The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.

    The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.

    But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden. The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work. They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

    Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers. They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

    The ballots were purchased in cash.

    It’s thought that Democratic Party operatives working inside Philadelphia’s election office provided Merlino with crates of raw ballots just hours before polls closed on election night, which he transported to two private households in South Philadelphia. By 10 p.m. that night Merlino’s operation was already generating more than 3,000 ballots per hour, which quickly scaled to more than 6,000 ballots per hour before midnight.

    But now, Merlino might just be willing to flip on Biden — in primetime Congressional testimony — if President Donald J. Trump is willing to issue the longtime mobster a full expungement of his decades-long criminal record. And, of course, Merlino wants to be pardoned for the election fraud itself and any crimes to which he may incriminate himself during his testimony.

    “He wants a clean record. He wants to fish and hunt on federal lands. He’d really like a job with the National Parks Service. You need a clean record to get those things,” explains one confidant. “But most of all he wants the thanks of a grateful nation for coming forward.”

    “He wouldn’t mind a little fame — or a lot of fame,” he jokes. “If he comes forward he’ll probably get a book deal and a movie franchise.”

    Political observers believe that Merlino could sell the rights of his story to a major Hollywood production studio for more than $20 million, and a book deal could yield as much as $10 million.

    “You have to understand the thing about Skinny Joey is that he is very charismatic and knows how to tell an enthralling story,” the associate explains. “He’d be an incredible movie narrator, and he’d perform excellently in congressional testimony. He could hit that testimony so far out of the ballpark that he becomes a superstar instantaneously — a real celebrity presence.”

    The damning congressional testimony — being tentatively dubbed ‘The Biggest Heist in Political History’ — could make it politically impossible for the Republican-controlled legislature in Pennsylvania to certify the State’s 20 electoral votes.

  9. The Left’s Wanton Violence Against the MAGA Marchers

    A preview of what’s to come if Biden-Harris take over.
    Mon Nov 16, 2020 Joseph Klein

    We are already getting an early taste of what Biden-Harris’s America will look like. Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa thugs harassed, threatened and assaulted pro-Trump demonstrators, who had peaceably assembled on Saturday in the nation’s capital for what was billed as the Million MAGA March. The radical leftists are preparing to own the streets, forcing law abiding Americans to either kowtow to their demands or get out of the way.

    What a difference four years make. When Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, ‘Not my president’ marches took place across the country. The marches were loud, angry and unruly. Conservatives who witnessed the marches undoubtedly did not like what they were hearing and seeing, but they did not try to bully the protesters. They respected the First Amendment rights of those upset by the election’s outcome so long as the protesters expressed their views peacefully, which they not always did.

    Fast forward to 2020 when conservatives backing President Trump have cause to be upset about what many believe to have been a stolen election. Trump supporters organized protests, culminating on Saturday when thousands gathered in Washington D.C. for the Million MAGA March. President Trump drove past and waved at the demonstrators at one point.

  10. Report From John Durham Coming ‘Real Soon,’ Says Rep. Jim Jordan

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, expects U.S. Attorney John Durham to release a report “real soon.”

    Speaking to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, Jordan said that Durham is “doing his work,” without elaborating, and Republicans can “expect some kind of report” in the near future. He didn’t provide a timetable as to when.

    Durham was tapped by Attorney General William Barr in 2019 to investigate alleged misconduct on behalf of intelligence officials, law enforcement, and other actors in relation to the FBI’s investigation into links between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Trump has long asserted that the FBI and Obama administration-era officials spied on his campaign and later attempted to spread disinformation tying him to the Kremlin.

    Democrats, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), have been critical of Durham’s investigation, accusing Barr and the Trump administration of facilitating a politically-motivated investigation into political rivals.

    Police in Washington on Sunday said they’d arrested a man caught on camera assaulting another man after a massive rally held by President Donald Trump supporters.

    Kenneth Wayne Deberry, 39, was arrested on charges including aggravated assault and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

    Deberry struck the victim, rendering him unconscious, according to video footage of the incident and a police incident summary.

    Video of the assault showed a group of anti-Trump demonstrators following and harassing Trump supporters who had attended a rally in D.C.

    One of the supporters then shoved a man who was shouting through a megaphone. The supporter was quickly surrounded and began exchanging blows with various people.

  13. UFC Fighter May Attend Conservative Rallies With Other Fighters After Seeing Left-Wing Attacks

    UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal, a conservative, said on Saturday that he may start attending conservative marches like the one held yesterday in Washington, D.C., with other fighters after he saw left-wing extremists attack people.

    Masvidal made the remark in a quote retweet of a video that showed some of the attacks yesterday.

    “I bet I can get a couple of teammates and start attending these things #supernecessary,” Masvidal wrote. “And I say this not to promote violence. To keep the peace. We are all in this together #theressurection.”

  14. CTV – CANADA – MPs agree to invite Biden, Harris to visit Canada when it’s ‘safe’

    OTTAWA — Members of Parliament from all sides have unanimously agreed to invite Democratic president-elect Joe Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris to visit Canada as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic has gotten under control in both countries.

    The unanimous approval came Monday, to an NDP motion, advanced by New Democrat House Leader Peter Julian.

    MPs have agreed that, “in recognition of the extraordinary relationship between Canada and the United States,” the pair is welcome to visit “at the earliest safe opportunity to do so.”

    The motion includes an invitation for Biden to address Parliament. The last U.S. president to address Canadian parliamentarians was Barack Obama, in June 2016.

    On Friday, Julian told CTVNews.ca his caucus decided to advance the motion in an effort to reset relations after four years of now-outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump.

    “Coming through what was a chaotic four years… it’s important to turn the page, extend that that hand and greeting to president-elect Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris and to say to them: ‘We would love to hear from you, we want to build a stronger relationship between our two countries,’” Julian said.

    Under current federal travel restrictions, the pair would have to be granted a special exemption to cross into Canada, and given the ongoing 14-day quarantine requirement for most Canadians returning from abroad, it’s unlikely Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be looking to head stateside any time soon.

    Both Canada and the United States are seeing a consistent and troubling rise in new COVID-19 cases, but Julian said he is hopeful that by next spring with the potential deployment of a vaccine or vaccines, that the pandemic could be under control enough to allow for a state visit and parliamentary address.
