“The People Who Cast The Votes Don’t Decide An Election, The People Who COUNT The Votes Do.”

Stealing Elections Is Easier Than You Can Imagine

Princeton University scientists showed how easy it is to steal elections by tampering with voting machines:

Here’s a summary:

So did University of California at Santa Barbara computer scientists:

So did a documentary filmmaker, to the shock of an election official and poll worker:

Indeed, a computer programmer admitted under oath to creating such a vote-switching program:

Argonne National Laboratories showed that voting machines can be hacked without any programming knowledge whatsoever … using around $20 worth of hardware:

Many videos have also been shot showing votes being switched in real-time:

Note how this machine switches votes even after being “recalibrated”:

Vote fraud doesn’t occur just through electronic shenanigans…

Last week local Iowa poll officials were caught on video changing vote tallies:

A quick explanation of what you’re watching (voter fraud):

The important problem is that the Bernie counters recounted everyone, while the Hillary counter was literally recorded telling someone else that she only added newcomers to the count she had before, and then when asked if she recounted everyone, she lied to the organizer and said “Yes”. This means that if anyone left the caucus site who was supporting Bernie, then they were removed by Bernie’s recounters, but any Hillary supporter who left the caucus site was treated as though they were still there for the purposes of the recount. Thus, artificial inflation of her numbers occurred unless everyone who left was a Bernie delegate, on top of the Hillary campaign surrogate lying to an election official to cover up her (negligent at best, malicious at worst) mistake.

And they left the recount up to a Yea Nay vote, which is just ridiculous.

The Des Moines Register noted “something smells” in the primaries.

Something similar happened in 2012:

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

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:

And President Carter said that the 2000 election was stolen.

It’s not just skulduggery by one particular party …

Sonoma State University professor and Project Censored Director Peter Phillips noted in 2005:

There is little doubt key Democrats know that votes in 2004 and earlier elections were stolen. The fact that few in Congress are complaining about fraud is an indication of the totality to which both parties accept the status quo of a money based elections system. Neither party wants to further undermine public confidence in the American “democratic” process (over 80 millions eligible voters refused to vote in 2004)…. Future elections in the US will continue as an equal opportunity for both parties to maintain a national democratic charade in which money counts more than truth.

Some voting machine companies are partisan Republicans, and other partisan Democrats.

But some aren’t even American.  For example, a global internet voting company headquartered in Spain purchased America’s dominant election results reporting company in 2012.

“It’s All Over But the Counting.  And We’ll Take Care of the Counting”

Stalin said:

The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.”

Before the 2004 election, U.S. Congressman Peter King said, “The election is over. We won.”

When a reporter asked, “How do you know that?”, King replied:

It’s all over, but the counting. And we’ll take care of the counting.

Indeed, both the Democrats and Republicans rig votes at their own conventions.

As Mark Twain said:

If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.

    Powerful documentation, GW; thank you.

    Very good! What is necessary is for Bernie Sanders to get on this issue, if he really wants a political revolution. The chaos in the Middle East is directly tied to election fraud that brought Bush and his slimy crew into power. Al Gore was too much of a political weasel to stand up and take the heat when he could have contested Florida and beat the Bush machine. The evil bastards who run the US political apparatus do not like this developing awareness of computer fraud one little bit. At every voting site, whether local or state or national voters must demand an accounting. If the vote count locally cannot be verified, there is no valid election. And guess what? The vote count cannot be verified at any polling site using computer voting machines!

      jadan, what will be most necessary is for Bernie’s *supporters* to be on top of this, observing and recording everything at every polling place, conducting the all-important exit polls, and stepping forward to challenge everything. First step: forward this article with a challenge to every Bernie supporter you know. Far too many are complacent – or rather innocent – living in their social media world, believing that winning the battle of public opinion will be enough. Revolutions aren’t spectator sports.

    Bernie’s “political revolution”, our “political revolution”, as jadan rightly says, will have to be fought at every polling place and in every state capital.

    Where computer voting machines with no paper trail are used, the results must be challenged based on exit polls – in the courts, the media, the legislatures – and in the streets! Demands may include re-running primaries using paper ballots. Failing that, activists in some states may hold “alternative primaries” and showing up in Philadelphia demanding they be seated, like what the Mississippi Freedom Party did in 1964.

    The fight to get our votes counted will be where the Political Revolution meets Occupy.

    Bernie’s biggest test will be whether he holds steady and lead its, or gives in to tremendous pressure and tries to hold us back. But he will, willy nilly, be seen and portrayed as holding us back, as he tries to use our power strategically, and the ultras and provocateurs among us will be quick to cry betrayal. We have to trust and defend him, and trust and believe in each other.

    President Eisenhower was issuing warnings about our own military-industrial complex; regardless of the protestations of high-ranking military officers, no cost-overrun, no matter how egregious, went unpaid. The Cold War was a profitable business that served many, that is why it lasted so long. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the “Soviet threat” was replaced with the “Muslim threat,” “War on Terror” took over from the Cold War. The charge, “conspiracy theory,” is used to prevent investigation. False flag attacks are used by governments in order to pursue secret agendas that they cannot publicly acknowledge.


  • Who’s Afraid of an Open Debate? The Truth About the Commission on Presidential Debates

    The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private corporation headed by the former chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties. The ‘CPD’ is a duopoly which allows the major party candidates to draft secret agreements about debate arrangements including moderators, debate format and even participants. The result is a travesty riddled with sterile, non-contentious arguments which consistently exclude alternative voices that Americans want to hear.


  • If you’re serious about democracy and the voting process, you have people fill out a voting form that’s printed on paper and that they have to fill in with a pencil. That is: filling out a ballot with an actual pencil. Then you drop the folded ballot into a box. You determined that the box was empty before the election. You make sure the way the document is printed leaves no room for ambiguity so that there’s endless kabuki theatre about hanging chads or other, similar nonsense.

    When all the votes are votes are registered and the last piece of paper is put into the box and all the voters have left the building, you start counting the votes by hand. Physically. With people from all parties involved looking and counting the ballots.

    When all the votes are counted and everybody has agreed on the fact that all the numbers add up, you have them sign off on the fact that all the votes were properly counted. Then you publicly list what the vote count was locally and you transmit the result to the higher authority that is collecting all the results. The higher authority confirms the result received such that there is no doubt that what they report as having received is the actual result they got.

    The ballot process does not require any technology that needs electricity. There is no man-in-the-middle attack possible. The box is not left ‘somewhere’ overnight to be collected ‘at some point’ by ‘somebody’ involved in the voting process. All the processing of the vote is done the same day. It is easy. It only requires that a counter is incremented by one for every valid ballot cast. No amount of smart code hacking is going to interfere with that process, there’s no code involved in the voting process at all.

    It takes longer to process, it’s true. It takes more oversight, it’s true, it takes more effort, it can’t be denied. It is also very much more difficult to interfere with the process because there are witnesses observing the entire process.

    And why do you do all that laborious work? Because the video clearly demonstrates that when something is run by computer code you essentially have no control over the outcome and you can’t be sure you’re correct. QED: a piece of paper and a pencil is better technology to conduct the voting process than a computer that is super easy to surreptitiously corrupt is.

    • jadan

      Very true. I cling to the wish that honest voting by computer should be possible. Why can’t each voter have an inviolable ID and the ability to check on the vote to verify that it was recorded as cast? Even though the apparatus we have now just doesn’t work, seems we should be able to develop a process that does. I believe direct democracy will only be possible as a practical matter if we can develop an unhackable mechanism that permits frequent and accurate voting of the electorate.

        the nsa has backdoors in operating systems, motherboard firmware, hard drive firmware. it is not possible to deliver an ‘unhackable’ solution. this is also why bitcoin is fatally flawed.

        Are Apple iOS, OS X flaws really backdoors for spies?

        The tech industry is raising this issue more often in the light of the Edward Snowden revelations of the past year that indicated the U.S. government, through the NSA, does pursue placing backdoors in products when it can, however it can.
