Evidence of Electronic Vote Fraud Pours In from Both Liberal and Conservative Sources

Rampant Evidence of Electronic Vote Tampering

Ron Paul supporters, progressives and the mainstream media have all discussed the potential for vote fraud.

A global internet voting company headquartered in Spain recently purchased America’s dominant election results reporting company.

The Wall Street Journal wrote in a 2008 article entitled “Will This Election Be Stolen?“:

And then there are the e-voting machines. Since early voting started recently, worried voters have reported seeing their votes flipped from Barack Obama to Mr. McCain in West Virginia and Texas.

We reported in 2006:

The non-partisan and highly-respected government agency, the Government Accountability Office, verified that the electronic voting machines used in 2004 were wide open to fraud, and that fraud likely occured in Ohio, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, and other states.

The security flaws in electronic voting machines are so complete that anyone can instantaneously install software which will change the vote counts. See this New York Times’ Magazine analysis, and also E-Voting Machine an Easy Hack from Wired Magazine.

Exit polling data shows that there was vote fraud.

And Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and leading reporter Greg Palast have shown that the emperor’s cronies intentionally spoiled, rejected, purged and otherwise refused to count enough ballots to take the election away from Kerry (not that I like Kerry). See also this article.

And spend 10 minutes at this website and you’ll realize that electronic vote fraud is not some raving conspiracy theory, but is real.

Indeed, the following headlines from the last two weeks hint at the magnitude of the fraud:

In this 2012 election, reports of electronic vote fraud are now pouring in from both liberal and conservative sources:

(Source; Update)

“Experimental” software patches on Ohio voting machines may sway the vote.

And Steve Watson notes:

Multiple reports of electronic voting machine irregularities have begun to pour in from all over the country as Americans take to the polls today.

Voters in Hamilton County Indianapolis were forced to wait for 30 minutes to begin voting because the machines were not working when the polling station opened.

The AP reports that “cards used to clear tallies from machines before voting begins were improperly programmed,” meaning that around 500 machines had to be “reset”.

The Toledo Blade reports that some 100 voters were unable to cast ballots this morning in Bedford, Ohio, because a voting machine was not working. Officials said that a memory card had to be replaced. Long lines led to people walking away.

In Dubuque, Iowa, more voters were delayed when machines failed to operate for around 45 minutes after the polling station opened.

Reports from across North Carolina, one of the key swing states, are pouring in suggesting that voting machines are flipping votes from one candidate to the other.

In Greensboro, “a voter complained that they tried to vote for Mitt Romney three times but that the ballot cast was instead for Barack Obama. Other voters in Guilford County and in some other parts of the state said they experienced similar issues.”

In Charlotte, another voter reported the same problem.

In Rehoboth, Massachusetts problems with voting machines were also noted. The machines officials are using are 14 years old, according to the report. Problems were also reported in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

In Milford Township, Pennsylvania, three voting machines stopped working after just one hour of voting. After a technician got them working again, one of them broke down a second time, causing waiting voters to begin discussing their distrust of the machines and the potential for voter fraud.

In Crawford County, problems with machines were also reported. They had not been set to the correct time, so were unable to be used for a short period of time.

In Missouri, the Secretary of State’s office has been forced to respond after numerous voters claimed that machines were flipping votes for Romney to votes for Obama.

In Pittsburgh, voters have reported multiple problems with voting machines.

In Sandy Springs, Georgia, hundreds of people were delayed when voting machines went down at around 11 a.m.

In Nashville, Tennessee, technical issues with the machines were reported by many voters, while in Chattanooga, machines malfunctioned, meaning some voters had to put their ballots in the machine without them being scanned.

In Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, hundreds of voters were turned away as all of the electronic voting machines at one polling station failed to operate. Polling workers only had 50 paper ballots available. Worse still, some voters who used the machines were told that their votes would not count if they had placed them before 8am.

In Spartanburg County, South Carolina, voting machines have failed to work all day and election officials have twice run out of paper ballots.

In Faulkner County, Arkansas, machines were reported inoperable.

Some areas in Virginia reported voting machine problems.

Voters in California have complained that voting machines switched their votes for Obama to Romney.

***

Last week this same problem was reported in six other states.

In Ohio, a lawsuit has been filed following the installation of software into voting machines by the state that experts say could allow “back door” vote manipulation by non-election board officials.

Green Party candidate Robert J. Fitrakis filed papers yesterday in federal court in Columbus, seeking an order blocking the use of the machines and the software in vote counting. Named as defendants in the case are Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted and Omaha, Nebraska- based Election Systems & Software Inc.

As we have routinely reported during elections, electronic voting machines have caused significant problems. Many security experts are adamant that the machines can easily be hacked, and past cases have shown that vote fraud has been facilitated by the use of electronic voting machines.

    One of the manifestations of the militarization of America is voter fraud, in the sense that whomever cheats the best, and the most, will “win” the election. The basic principles of militarism, or the Art of War, are that success is based on deceits, and so, spies are the most important soldiers. The runaway fascist plutocracy juggernaut steamrollering over the USA is an expression of those basic methods of organized crime, whereby the “winner” of the elections is decided by whomever does the most voter fraud. These days, I wonder whether there were any episodes where hacking the voting machines actually became some sort of live duel between different hackers? However, of course, that kind of fancy voter fraud is probably only a small component of the overall frauds. THE BASIC PROBLEM IS THAT MILITARIZATION OF THE USA HAS MILITARIZED THE ELECTIONS, IN THE SENSE THAT “VICTORY” GOES TO THE BEST DECEITS, DONE BY THE BEST DECEIVERS.

    Elections were supposed to be civilized ways to engage in conflicts, however, after those civilizing rules have been gradually broken down, through past victories of corruption going into positive feedback loops to cause more and more corruption, the final outcomes are that the conflicts can no longer be contained within civilizing sets of social rules. Each American election appeared to me to be more corrupt than the last one! Therefore, those who won that way did not attempt to fix any of those problems! Those who lost had no power to prevent the frauds from snowballing into an avalanche of more and more frauds. I believe we have reached the point where most of the other elections taking place in most of the rest of world are not as corrupt as the American elections now routinely are. Overall, this runaway “militarization” of American society, including “militarization” of the election processes, means that the civil society is being destroyed, and therefore, we head towards INSANE CIVIL WARS. Unfortunately, I suspect that those who were behind driving that long-term deterioration of the USA, to destroy it as a democratic republic, actually WANT and PLANNED for that. Therefore, we had a series of worse and worse puppet politicians, working for puppet masters, that have deliberately arranged for there to be a runaway militarization of the USA, especially including the electoral processes!

    And a big part of voter fraud is creating obstacles to voting….like Hurricane Sandy. Obama obviously knew something was up with an emanate domestic (inside) weather mod attack, so on Oct. 6, 1012, he signed a new executive order …. “Establishing the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council.” So, while you were concerned about your fellow Americans, or perhaps preparing for the storm yourself, the powers-that-be were busy, too.

    The order creates a special council within the hierarchy of the Department of Homeland Security that is to oversee “strategic partnerships” for the purpose of addressing “evolving threats to the United States.” This includes government organizations establishing relationships with the private sector, business, and non-government organizations of all types, any which may further their cause of fighting this vicious War on Terror.

    We know that government agencies are creating “strategic partnerships” by contracting with private companies (Rayteon) for the purpose of weather modification. It would be a good idea to know which foreign or domestic interests are creating drought and hurricanes in the USA. But don’t think you are going to get by with blaming geoengineered Sandy on “terrorists” unless you include Romney, Bill Gates, and the Bildebergers on that list.

    “While the debate rages regarding whether or not the U.S. government uses weather manipulation technology to steer storms like Hurricane Sandy, further evidence shows the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been engaged in research to do just that for years.

    In 2008, an article in New Scientist discussed a new DHS project that funded research into guiding and directing the intensity of hurricanes.

    Citing Hurricane Katrina as the basis for the project, the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP) worked with Project Stormfury veteran Joe Golden and a panel of other experts “to test the effects of aerosols on the structure and intensity of hurricanes.” HAMP was funded under contract HSHQDC-09-C-00064 at a taxpayer price tag of $64.1 million.” (Melissa Melton, Infowars.com)

    It appears we have several stakeholders sharing the benefits of geoengineering internationally. The Defense Dept., Raytheon, Homeland Security, Bill Gates, Utility Cos, Farmers, Insurance Companies, whomever can afford it, and now, political parties like the Republicans who’s candidate still receives income from owning the weather channel. Bet he loves this … Weather Channel leads cable news ratings with Sandy coverage…. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-10-30/business/sns-rt-us-storm-sandy-ratingsbre89t1lv-20121030_1_nielsen-data-weather-channel-viewers

    And this….: Bad Weather on Election Day? Many Won’t Vote http://www.weather.com/news/bad-weather-election-turnout-20120924

    So in my psychic and literal opinion….. Mr. Obama got himself in a whole lot of hurt by combining defense and private interest under the geoengineering umbrella, and too late setting up DHS as the police. And because Obama has been keeping geoengineering activity under wraps, how ya gonna explain it to the people ….. you can’t. Obama got his _ _ _ kicked by the boys that brought you 9-11…

    There’s a significant difference between voter fraud and election fraud or tampering.

    Voter fraud means just that; the voters are cheating by some means such as voting more than once or stuffing ballot boxes. This is obviously not the issue.

    Election fraud, tampering with and rigging the election process at the behest of one or both major political parties or the money masters who own them, is what has controlled american elections completely since 2000 and probably to an increasing extent since long before then.

    Just my opinion.

    • Bev

      Agree.

    • terry1956

      I think both are issues and there is a tendency for to many looking at one to deny the other, while the establishment tends to deny either occurs.

    Vote counting company tied to Romney

    by Gerry Bello & Bob Fitrakis

    September 27, 2012
    Several Tanker trucks full of political ink have been spilled on Mitt
    Romney’s tenure as a vulture capitalist at Bain Capital. A more
    important story, however, is the fact that Bain alumni, now raising big
    money as Romney bundlers are also in the electronic voting machine
    business. This appears to be a repeat of the the infamous former CEO of
    Diebold Wally O’Dell, who raised money for Bush while his company
    supplied voting machines and election management software in the 2004
    election.

    In all 234 counties of Texas, the entire states of Hawaii and
    Oklahoma, half of Washington and Colorado, and certain counties in swing
    state Ohio, votes will be cast on eSlate and ePollbook machines made by
    Hart Intercivic. Hart Intercivic machines have famously failed in
    Tarrant County (Ft. Worth), adding 10,000 non-existent votes. The
    EVEREST study, commissioned by the Ohio secretary of state in 2007,
    found serious security flaws with Hart Intercivic products.

    Looking beyond the well-documented Google choking laundry list
    of apparent fraud, failure and seeming corruption that is associated
    with Hart Intercivic, an ongoing Free Press investigation turned its
    attention to the key question of who owns the voting machine companies.
    The majority of the directors of Hart come from the private equity firm
    H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. has been heavily invested in Hart Intercivic
    since July 2011, just in time for the current presidential election
    cycle. But who is H.I.G Capital?

    Out of 49 partners and directors, 48 are men, and 47 are white.
    Eleven of these men, including H.I.G. Founder Tony Tamer, were formerly
    employed at Bain and Company, and two of those men, John P. Bolduc and
    Douglas Berman are Romney bundlers along with former Bain and H.I.G.
    manager Brian Shortsleeve.

    Additionally, four of these men were formerly employed at Booz
    Allen Hamilton. Bush family friendly Carlyle group is an owner of Booz
    Allen which also made voting machines for the United States military.
    Booz Allen was also the key subcontractor for the controversial
    PioneerGroundbreaker program, an NSA data mining operation that gathered
    information on American citizens until it was shut down and replaced
    with even more invasive successor programs like MATRIX and Total
    Information Awareness.

    H.I.G. Capital employees have given $338,000 to Mitt Romney’s
    campaign. That amounts to over $1500 per employee. Bain Capital, Mitt’s
    former company, by comparison, only gave him $268,000. H.I.G. is the
    11th largest donor to the Romney Campaign. Clearly they are working
    really hard for their man. It appears that they will work even harder on
    election night. Although not boisterously promising to deliver states
    where their machines are to Romney as Wally O’Dell of Diebold did for
    Bush in 2004, they can alter hundreds of thousands of votes and swing
    the vote in the crucial swing state of Ohio.

    Will Mitt’s cronies steal our democracy the way they stole our
    jobs? Time will tell, but they have certainly positioned themselves to
    do so if they choose.

    In our first investigative article Who owns Scytl? George Soros isn’t in the voting machines, but the intelligence community is,

    the Free Press revealed that Scytl, a Spanish-based company now
    contracted to count 25% of the U.S. presidential vote, has ties to Booz
    Allen. Scytl’s start up funding comes from three European Venture
    Capital Firms, Balderton Capital, Nauta Capital, and Spinnaker SCR. The
    director of Nauta’s American operations is Dominic Endicott, who went
    from Cluster Consulting to Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) where he
    oversaw wireless practice. He then rejoined his former colleagues from
    Cluster Consulting at Nauta. In his capacity as a Nauta partner Endicott
    also sits on the board of CarrierIQ.

    Romney-linked e-voting firm WILL run its machines in this election—and election officials in Ohio lie about it!

    Hart Intercivic holds maintenance contracts on their own machines—and OH election officials lie about it

    by Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis

    October 24, 2012

    Election officials lie to cover the facts

    Since the Columbus Free Press broke the story of Tagg, Mitt, HIG
    Capital and your e-vote, there has been a bi-partisan effort on the
    internet to restore faith in the system. There are Democrats who wish
    the Free Press would remain silent, fearing that exposure of these facts
    will demoralize their base and lead to low voter turnout. Pundits like
    Chuck Todd have used the phrase “conspiracy theory” and even gone so far
    as to say “The voting machine conspiracies belong in same category as
    the Trump birther garbage.” An industry shill, Michelle Shafer, who
    currently works as media director for Scytl, a Spanish-based
    vote-counting company, and has worked for all but one of the major
    voting machine manufacturers, has replied via comment to our articles
    with additional falsehoods and misrepresentations.

    As stated in a previous Free Press article, through a closely held
    equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother
    are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G.
    in turn holds a majority share and has three out of the five board
    members on Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty
    electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state
    Ohio on November 6. Hart is majority owned by a private equity firm run
    by fundraisers for the Romney campaign.

    The biggest current lie is that Hart Intercivic has little or nothing
    to do with the maintenance of its voting machines in the current
    election. That lie was recently told to the Washington Post by an
    official in Hamilton County, “Hamilton County director of elections Amy
    Searcy said Tuesday that officials purchased the system five years ago
    and that Hart is not involved with its operations or maintenance.”

    What may happen in Ohio (again) and what to do about it

    Why Vote Fraud Is Possible and What To Do About It Posted: 11/05/2012 4:02 pm

    Cynthia Boaz

    Associate Professor of Political Science, Consultant on Nonviolent Action and Strategy

    The consensus is that this presidential election may all come down to
    Ohio and a few other “swing” states, as it did in 2000 and 2004. If
    there are any voting irregularities to be found this time around, Ohio
    will be the place to look first. “The feeling from those of us who went
    through [the vote fraud of] 2004 is that we are about to repeat that
    election,” says Cliff Arnebeck, attorney, former Republican operative,
    and self-appointed election watchdog.

    The massive, secretly-financed advertising campaign on behalf of
    Romney’s candidacy and targeted at Ohio and other swing states, on top
    of the Romney campaign’s own avalanche of advertising, has so saturated
    Ohio airwaves in recent weeks that it has managed to create the
    (arguably erroneous) perception that Romney can win the state, despite
    consistent poll leads for Obama. Unless observers are alert to possible
    fraud, this would help camouflage tampering with vote counts.

    And that is exactly what Arnebeck and other election-fraud watchdogs
    are concerned about. If Ohio is stolen, something they believe to be
    well within the experience and capacity of Karl Rove’s organization, it
    will be done on the margins. Jill Simpson, a former Rove operative, has
    posted a map outlining Rove’s alleged plan for manipulating the 2012
    election on Election Protection Action, Inc. This possibility may not
    have escaped the US. Department of Justice, which issued a press release
    on Friday stating that its “Civil Rights Division plans to deploy more
    than 780 federal observers and department personnel to 51 jurisdictions
    in 23 states for the Nov. 6, 2012, general election… to defend federal
    voting rights laws.” Four of the counties listed in the press release
    are in Ohio, including Hamilton County, one of the locations on which
    the entire election could very well turn, and which also happens to be a
    client of Hart InterCivic, an electronic voting machine company
    partially owned by HIG Capital, which is in turn has been heavily
    invested in by Solamere, a private equity firm owned by Tagg Romney.

      Romney, Landslide Loser Refuses Timely Concession

      GOP Retains Control in the House, Dems Sweep Senate

      …by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

      _

      America does some really dumb things but running an organized crime
      boss for president, and a bumbling wimp of one at that, this had gone
      too far.

      What we can tell you is that the senior active and retired
      intelligence and top law enforcement and DOJ professionals, the drug
      enforcement officers, they are the ones that beat Romney, not the Obama
      campaign.

      They wouldn’t allow Romney to turn America into something even worse than the seemingly hopeless mess we have now and moved.

      Probably the worst scam in the entire election was the accusations
      made by a few stooges, some former military, sold out to organized
      crime, that accused the president of murdering an ambassador in order to
      try to lose the election.

      Add to that a phony corporate media who never attempted to dig out
      who paid for ex-CIA Rev. Terry Jones’ all day Muslim rant webcast that
      cost millions of dollars.

      This was a smoking gun that the whole thing was the expected October
      surprise, and took us only a day to find out who all was involved. Data
      mining is a wonderful thing.

      These stories need to be kept and whenever one of these phony
      military fatass types tries to cash in, they need to be shut down.
      Veterans Today’s archives are backed up on proxy servers off shore and
      can never be ‘disappeared’, hacked or firebombed.

      Then we have Hannity, Dick Morris, George Will, Newt, and, don’t
      forget poor Sheldon “Kiss of Death” Adelson who thought he bought five
      states for Romney and got none.

      Then we can see how well the Israel lobby did, New York is solidly
      Obama and, as of this writing, Florida is in play, a state that was
      supposed to be solid Romney territory with his Cuban connections.

      Oops, we forget. Romney got burned for his Castro meetings.

      The other upside is that the Israel lobby is now where it belongs,
      toothless, its massive influx of illegal cash into race after race and
      voters in almost ever case went the other way.

      Cuba, the recent revelations, burned Romney more than we suspected.
      We ran the story, pushed to do so at the last minute but didn’t think it
      would get solid distribution.

      We were wrong. We simply published, others put it in the hands of key
      political figures and squashed Romney’s backing in several key
      political and ethnic groups.

      Our intel friends were busy in more areas also.

      They leaked Romney’s ties to blood diamonds, money laundering, his ties to Castro and the cartels in Mexico and Columbia.

      They even leaked his mistress, a Russian/Cuban spy name Maria Perez Andropov.

      A few days before the election, what may actually be the best we
      have, a flawed lot I admit, but including key members of our military,
      moved on Romney and Netanyahu and, and, and…

      snip

      We can no longer accept the government under these circumstances, the
      money in politics, the rule by special interest, the war for profit and
      the imposed third world slavery that the American people are expecting
      their grandchildren to face.

      Obama doesn’t get off the hook. He is now free to do all those thing he promised.

      snip

      The fun followup will be the wild conspiracy mongering that has
      already begun on Fox News, claiming ACORN and the Black Panthers rigged
      the election.

      It is a reasonable estimate, not without some backing, that 5 million
      votes were flipped to Romney through software hacking, ballot box
      stuffing and simply destroying ballots.

      He still lost big.

      snip

      …here…despite the fact we are the largest active veterans group and,
      by miles the most politically effective, we continue to be minimized.

      Veterans don’t need cigarettes, booze and bingo. Americans don’t need
      a police state. If government doesn’t want to hear the unpleasant
      truth, it can change or we will find a way of removing it. We didn’t
      take down the criminal cabal around Romney and his Bush associates by
      ourselves but we were a third of that effort, done without one cent of
      fund raising.

      We had Americans with us. Again, my thanks to all that stood with us
      at VT, numbers I would never have imagined. I am humbled. Please post
      all election conspiracy theories in the comment section.

      ……………

      And, and another update:

      http://markcrispinmiller.com/2012/11/score-one-at-last-for-the-election-integrity-movement/

      Score one (at last) for the Election Integrity movement!

      Late last night, after Obama took Ohio, Karl Rove was on Fox News,
      doggedly refusing to concede. He insisted that Ohio was still in play,
      as Romney was going to win in Hamilton County—where the votes were
      “counted” on machines made and maintained by Hart InterCivic, a company
      effectively controlled by Romney’s family. (The same machines were also
      used in Williams County.)

      So it’s not surprising that the GOP’s Lord Voldemort foresaw an
      “upset victory” in that county. It is surprising that he said it on Fox
      News, and when the game was obviously lost, so that a sudden Romney
      “victory” in Ohio would have seemed especially suspicious—even in the
      eyes of Rove’s old allies on Fox News (or those not in the loop).

      To those of us with vivid memories of Election Nights 2000 and 2004,
      it was a creepy moment—and things got even creepier when Brad Friedman
      reported that the website of the Ohio SoS had suddenly gone down, which
      had also happened at that very hour eight years before; and when it had
      come back on, Kerry, who had been ahead, was now behind.
      And—horribly—the rest was history.

      But that didn’t happen this time, as Rove had obviously lost
      control—of himself (his recklessness in mouthing off like that was
      staggering), and, infinitely more important, of his well-oiled,
      fabulously subsidized election-theft machine. For all his plans, and all
      the preparations made by Ohio SoS Jon Husted (among others), Rove was
      clearly overruled on this Election Day, as cooler heads prevailed.

      The fact is that, this time, yet another late-night “upset victory”
      would have been too risky—for the US press had finally done its job,
      enough to make a lot of people conscious of what’s happened to our
      voting system, and, therefore,of what could happen to let Romney “win.”

      The honor roll includes, among many others, Harper’s (for publishing
      Victoria Collier’s brilliant overview), the Atlantic, Esquire, the
      Christian Science Monitor, Forbes (which came out with a killer piece
      about Ohio’s voting system early on Election Day), Huffington Post, and
      even DailyKos (which had been fervently denialist since 2004).

      This time, such organs, and others, played up news that most of them
      would once have buried or ignored—especially the news of what was
      happening in Ohio, broken by Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis in the
      Columbus Free Press, and carried even by such unlikely outlets as Fox 19
      in Cincinnati.

      In short, our work online was finally resonating through the
      mainstream press—not the New York Times or CNN, of course, but others
      numerous and respectable enough to give some traction to the questions
      we’ve been raising for so many years. Thus the old smear of “conspiracy
      theory” finally sounded not like common sense but like the mere ad
      hominem evasion that it’s really always been; and so those few who used
      that smear this time were shot to pieces for it.

      When NBC’s Chuck Todd compared concerns about e-voting to “birther
      garbage,” Brad Friedman cleaned his clock, with a devastating catalogue
      of proven instances of fraud that didn’t just expose the ignorance of
      NBC’s so-called “elections expert,” but which can now be used by anyone
      who wants to fight for fair elections.

      And, as usual, that tired old slur came not just from the corporate
      media but, even louder, from the left—ThinkProgress and Alternet both
      coming out with marvelously stupid pieces whose effect, potentially, is
      so destructive that Karl Rove himself might just as well have written
      them. (In its error-riddled item calling the Hart InterCivic story
      “FALSE,” Snopes.com used Alternet as a source.) And yet the dozens of
      smart, angry comments posted in response to those outrageous screeds
      make clear that leftist pundits can no longer get away with laughing off
      this all-important fight for real elections in America.

      It’s time to put an end to such complacent jeering; because people
      need to know—and want to know—what’s happened here, and what they can do
      about it. That growing public interest is the reason why our work has
      finally broken through, with Brad, Victoria, Bob, Gerry and Harvey
      Wasserman, Jonathan Simon, Sally Castleman, Richard Charnin, Michael
      Collins, Greg Palast, Bev Harris, John Ennis, Sheila Parks, Paul Lehto,
      Marta Steele and so many others (and please do forgive me if I didn’t
      name you here—I’m really tired!) finally seeing, if not their names in
      lights, their vital findings resonating through the public sphere. In my
      own case, that broad public interest recently came home to me when my
      half-hour interview with Heather Wokusch on MNN (NYC’s public access
      channel) instantly went viral up on YouTube, getting over 80,000 hits in
      just four days.

      And it’s because our work has reached so many people that it’s not
      just we ourselves who spread the word, but countless others who aren’t
      activists. As Rove and his confederates mulled their options yesterday,
      who knows how much they fretted over that explosive bit of video posted
      by “centralpavoter,” showing that an ES&S iVotronic e-voting machine
      had repeatedly flipped his Obama vote to Romney? (The Raleigh Telegram
      reported that the same thing was happening on machines in North
      Carolina.) The fact that it went viral—vividly disproving the GOP’s
      propaganda claimsthat Democrats were somehow flipping Romney votes—had
      to help decide them not to rip off this election after all.

      So while this day after is a thrilling time for Democrats, it is a
      moment of rare triumph for those fighting for legitimate elections in
      America. We’re feeling this elation not because Barack Obama won, but
      because we’ve helped prevent the right from pulling off another “win”
      despite the will of the electorate. And—despite that Democratic sweep—we
      will keep up this fight to realize American democracy itself, which
      must be saved not only from Karl Rove, the Kochs and Sheldon Adelson,
      but from the long joint grip of both the parties, and the money flooding
      through them.

      From Victoria Collier:

      THANK YOU TO THE ELECTION INTEGRITY MOVEMENT!

      The awareness of potential GOP vote rigging was unprecedented leading
      up to the 2012 November election, and it made a difference. Many within
      the election integrity movement – Progressives, Libertarians and even
      Republicans – did not believe that Mitt Romney could win in honest
      elections.

      Election Day 2012 did see break-downs of electronic voting machines
      all across the country, enormous lines in African-American districts,
      and we will probably end up tallying millions of likely-Democratic votes
      lost in voter roll purges, discarded ballots, and other votes lost to
      GOP robo-calling and other dirty tricks.

      Which means that, as in 2008, it’s likely that Democratic wins are much larger than officially recorded.

      But the alarms had been sounded presidential vote-rigging was unprecedented and MILLIONS of eyes were on Ohio and Florida.

      Though we still have a task in front of us – instituting election
      reform; clean elections, the end of corporate campaign financing, and
      transparent vote counting – we must count this election in many ways as a
      victory for our movement.

    It
    blows my mind that the worst president in history was RE-ELECTED. It
    just goes to show that there are a lot of gullible people out there who
    will believe anything they get fed into their brains. I guess most
    people like being in debt and on foodstamps living off the government.
    WELCOME TO THE RUINATION OF YOUR COUNTRY!!! I don’t claim an ignorant
    country. And before you get upset, look up the definition of “ignorant”
    that would be more research than you did on obama, otherwise you would
    have never voted him back in. Geez, I want to move to Canada.

      You’re really oversimplifying. The ruination of this country took place in 1913 with the passage of the federal reserve act.

      Do you actually think romney would have done anything to help the american people? Do you really think obama is in charge?

      This ostensible election was decided long ago. The voters had nothing to do with it.

      I would rather have seen Jill Stein and the Green Party take over but such scenarios are mere fantasy in neofascist america.

      What we’re getting is another four years of “stealthy” neofascism, as opposed to the republican, “in your face” variety, which is what a Romney administration would have most likely meant.

      What we had with this election was just a slightly muted replay of 08. The money masters put the worst possible candidates they could come up with on the republican ticket so they wouldn’t really need to tamper with the voting too much.

      They probably figured another obvious fix like they did, twice, with the chimp would cause too much “civil unrest” and they’re really not ready to use their new concentration camps just yet. First they want to finish turning the country into a “western” banana republic.

      “It’s easy to imagine a future in which growing numbers of cities have their frail and long-neglected infrastructures knocked out by disasters and then are left to rot, their core services never repaired or rehabilitated. The well-off, meanwhile, will withdraw into gated communities, their needs met by privatized providers.”Naomi Klein, The Shock Doctrine

      Once america is reduced to the status of a third world country, with most of the population turned into homeless climate refugees, they can start herding them into the labour camps, exterminating those who protest or are too old or infirm to be useful and keeping the rest penned up like a bunch of palestinians in the gaza strip.

      I share your desire to get out of Dodge, but canada is being besieged by the same capitalist profit machine that has destroyed america and much of Earth. It’s only a matter of time before it succumbs. At this point, there’s really no safe haven to flee to.

      Just my opinion.

      Consummatum est.

        Yes while the federal reserve act should have never passed the fact is in the US like in all modern day developed nations it is the central government that is the ruling class.
        The ruling class in the US is made up of 546 members in DC, congress, the president, the VP and the US Supreme Court.
        There is only two classes in the US the 546 member ruling class and the rest of us.
        Even NPR admits its usually members of congress shaking down lobbyist, although lobbyist bribing members of congress occurs often.
        Some members of congress are honest but most of the honest ones are useful idiots to the dishonest ones.
        A super majority of both parties are dishonest and they know they have the ruling power to shut down the federal reserve and throw corporate CEO’s in prison on real charges, maufactured charges or no charge.

      Well part of the reason the worst president in US history was reelected was the Obama team did a better job at vote rigging than the Romney team( although I doubt Romney knew any thing about it but the con is second nature to Obama, he was brought up to be a con artist.)
      Of course if the GOP had not nominated Romney, the big flip flopper and inventor of Obamacare enough people would have came to the polls to cast an honest vote for the GOP nominee and thus making the vote count rigging for Obama much harder to result in sucess.
      Of Course if only honest votes had been counted in the GOP primary, Cacucus, state conventions its doubtful Romney would have got the nomination anyway.

      • it me

        conservative propaganda like “the worst president in US history”

        trust me, it’s far too many letters for someone with a brain your size to come up with on their own

    • it me

      it’d blow your mind less if you didn’t let people tell you that obama is the worst president in history, which is objectively false.

      it’s easy for you to identify believing anything that gets fed into your brain, isn’t it

      i can’t get over butthurt conservatives who think canada is less liberal than america

  • JosephConrad

    The SAME COMPANYS that make VOTING MACHINES MAKE ‘ATMS’! The former always give a CONSISTENTLY ACCURATRE receipt, customer current balance data, network easily and are almost IMPOSSIBLE TO ‘HACK’ OR ‘ROB’! SO…WHY DO VOTING MACHINES FAIL TO PERFORM SO CONSISTENTLY affecting so many lives and futures and costing levels of government 100’S OF BILLIONS EACH YEAR – BFORE AND AFTER ELECTIONS?! Please think about this OBVIOUS FACT!!

    • http://chimaeraimaginarium.wordpress.com/ Richard_William_Posner

      That’s a very good question. What’s your explanation and your point? Are you saying that because ATM machines are not used to mishandle depositors money, that proves that voting machines can’t be used to rig elections? If so, that’s quite a stretch. The banking cartel wants people to continue putting their “money” under its control. Nearly everyone has been convinced that “money” is a valuable commodity with intrinsic value. As long as this lie is believed, the money masters can use the false wealth of money to obtain ownership of real wealth; as in vital resources required for human survival. Once they “own” something, like potable water, food, arable land or sources of energy, they can simply charge everyone else whatever they like for it or withhold it completely. Control of the election process provides this same banking cartel with the ability to assure they always have the marionette of their choice in the white house who can be used to maintain the charade of “democracy” while actually further eroding the last vestiges of freedom and civil rights. The same false wealth is also used to “buy” very nearly the entire political system.
