ELECTION 2020: ATTACKING THE TRUMP LEGAL TEAM, NOT THE POSSIBILITY OF ELECTION FRAUD

Day + 18, and the focus has shifted from potential election fraud to denigrating Trump’s legal team…

vote-day-after-18

For those shouting “show me the evidence of election fraud…”

TRUMPTEAM

(1)  Evidence that is acceptable to the courts comes in five basic forms: physical evidence consisting of objects pertinent to the allegations; documentary evidence pertinent to the allegations and considered to be equivalent to physical evidence; oral testimony under oath pertinent to the allegations; and affidavits pertaining to the allegations which are taken under penalty and considered to be the equivalent of oral testimony. In some cases, the results of expert experiments and demonstrations may also considered evidence.

(2)  All evidence is subject to admissibility rules and subject to challenge by the opposition or the judge.

(3)  Any attorney or legal team does not owe anything to the media, the general public, nor their opposition to disclose details of future or pending cases. Their duty is to represent their clients and present their case in a court of competent jurisdiction at an appropriate time, mindful of any deadlines that would render their efforts moot and unacceptable to the court.

What is being described as the Giuliani press conference was only meant to counter 24/7 negative media narratives and present a glimpse of the evidence; much in the manner of an opening statement, which is used to describe the case and what the attorneys hope to prove using the evidence that will be presented. The sworn affidavits are evidence. It is up to the opposition and a judge to challenge their truthfulness and applicability before deciding what remedy, if any, can be applied to redress the situation.

It is not over until it is over…

Famed attorney and former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz has noted that a challenge of all the rules created by election officials and judges, without corresponding actions by state legislatures, may be subject to successful challenge as being unconstitutional. Article II Section I of the U.S. Constitution gives each state the authority to create election rules and to appoint its electors in whatever manner the state Legislature directs -- and not necessarily based on the popular vote. That is assuming there are no “faithless electors” who will vote their conscience and refuse to take orders from the state legislature.

The key goal of Trump’s team would be to deny Biden 270 electoral votes and for the matter to be thrown into the House of Representatives where Trump has a relatively small chance of prevailing. There is no certainty of any outcome.

Where is the media?

For four long years, the mainstream media has published leaks, rumors, and random information about a non-existent Trump/Russia hoax. Actual evidence was either ignored or mischaracterized. One might think that honest journalists working for credible media outlets would be asking their own questions, interviewing participants, and investigating claims of fraud. Most government and large commercial buildings have camera systems. Why has nobody mentioned looking at records that might show the middle-of-the-night vote delivery?

Bottom line…

No matter who you are or who you represent, there are so many anomalies and strange happenings that there is a certain circumstantial weight to the plausible assumption that something went very wrong and all major errors benefited Biden.

Personal smell test: I have a hard time believing that a candidate who couldn’t get fifteen people to attend a rally would get millions of more votes than Obama and a guy that packs stadiums. All the votes went in the right direction, in the right places, and at the right (same) times – even while losing large percentages of his core minority constituency groups. And that election officials knew that they would get only a slap on the wrist for breaking the rules.

Even if the allegations that the 2020 election were stolen by an evil cabal of progressive socialist democrats and an evil collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software to flip millions of votes from Trump to Biden are wrong, any intensive investigation and forensic examination of software would be beneficial to allaying future suspicions and ensure election integrity

We should pay attention to those Republicans who refuse to stand up for the party at this crucial time and given them basement closets for offices, no committee appointments, and no party funding.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: ELECTION CASES ARE WON IN COURT, NOT PRESS CONFERENCES

Welcome to Day + 17, where counts, recounts, challenges, and court cases dominate our attention…

We have seen issues with count irregularities; lost votes; disparate treatment of different voter classes involving mail versus in-person votes, those allowed to cure ballot defects versus those ballots that were discarded; unmonitored vote and recount efforts; lack of vote chain of custody; adequately explained count suspensions, uniform ballot marks, statistical anomalies, changes in rules without legislative authority, and others. If any of these documented defects rise to compromise an election at the county or state level it will be the responsibility of the state legislatures and the courts to resolve outstanding issues.

vote-day-after-17

An essential truth: The key to understanding the current situation is to understand that allegations of fraud are NOT the equivalent of fraud and that it unlikely that any court or legislature will disenfranchise large numbers of voters or invalidate an entire election based on a small percentage of defective ballots or improper procedures.

Another dog and pony show…

Once again, the Trump team hosts a media event – and, once again, it lacks specificity and is filled with speculation, supposition, and, quite frankly, bullshit!

TRUMPTEAM

According to the principal speakers, the purpose of the presser was to present the equivalent of an “opening statement” and to give a glimpse of some of the “evidence” so that attacks by the “fake media” could be overcome. Some of the most important points being: this group only three lawsuits, sufficient time to proceed, and all of the other suits were brought by unaffiliated individuals and organizations – many of which were dismissed for lack of standing before the Court.

Are these near-fantastic tales of massive electronic election fraud believable or even possible?

One, we have seen the Obama White House, Democrat members of Congress, and our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies engaged in an effort to use Democrat-created disinformation (the Steele Dossier) to spy on Americans and to attempt the removal a sitting president from office. This is a demonstrable FACT.

Two, we have seen efforts by the Department of Homeland Defense to affiliate with those who are creating electronic voting devices and auditing software which could affect our domestic elections. And, its alliance with a radical progressive socialist democrat organization is well-documented.

Just when you believe it can't get worse, a government agency (CISA) doesn't disclose it is partnering with an uber-partisan group that is fundamentally un-American...

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).

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.  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.

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

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.

[OCS: Voting system manufacturer? An audit tool created to sample and verify election results? Government involvement in election systems?]

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.

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.

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. <Source>

It remains to be seen if any of the suspect Smartmatic code is incorporated in the voting or reporting systems. Of course, it is unlikely that malevolent actors would release information on secret code Easter-eggs or backdoors to the public.

Bottom line…

“We the People” have no alternative than to wait and see how this all plays out. In the meantime, we should be fighting to hold the Senate and participating in the two Georgia Senate races that, if lost, can further erode all of the constitutional checks and balances against a tyrannical one-party government.

We are so screwed.

2020 -- GOOGLE CENSORED POST

,vote-day-after-16

It is Day + 16…

The media-touted “Kraken,” the mythical octopus-like sea monster that Attorney Sidney Powell threatened to unleash, appears to be contained in supporting exhibit “C” in a court filing (CIVIL ACTION FILE NO. 1:20-cv-04651-SDG; Document 6-14 filed 11/17/20) requesting “declaratory relief and an emergency injunction from this Court halting the certification of Georgia's results for the November 3, 2020, presidential election.”

The partially-redacted document purports to be a declaration of an unnamed individual whose foreign military service appears to have involved him in observing the creation and operation of an undetectable vote manipulation system to benefit Venezuelan politicians. The software was purported to be created by Smartmatic and used in several foreign elections.

ex-1-p

ex-1

Now comes an uncorroborated leap of faith. The allegation is that the Smartmatic antecedent software is contained within the Dominion voting system and that no changes to its basic functionality have occurred over the years.

Ex-2It looks suspicious…

ex-3

Sworn under penalty of perjury…

Ex-4

If this is the Kraken, it is little more than a reason to forensically examine the Dominion system and any associated functions like vote recording, tabulating, and reporting. That it is a first-person declaration is almost meaningless as it does not appear that any of this information is corroborated in the present physical world with documentation, code snippets, programs, computer chips, and memory devices, or with multiple independent sources attesting to the particulars of the manipulation such as the system operators, observers, or other participants.

However, if this information is true and correct – AND WAS USED IN THE MANNER SUGGESTED TO SUBVERT AN ELECTION – all of the electors in the affected states should be ordered to cast their votes for Donald Trump. Followed by an investigation, prosecution, and if the participants are found guilty, sentenced to a Madoff-like life without the possibility of parole.

Most of the Lin Wood filing consists of affidavits witnessing procedural errors and suspicious behavior during counting and recounting. The statistical analysis included is suggestive but proves nothing. If I wanted to include such an analysis, I would depose Walter Mebane, professor of political science and statistics at the University of Michigan, who is an expert on election forensics, a field devoted to using statistical methods to determine whether the results of an election accurately reflect the intentions of the electors.

There will always be procedural errors, discrepancies, and human screw-ups in every election; however, any remedy that disenfranchises large numbers of voters is likely to unacceptable to the courts and likely to provoke anger in militant voters.

Not everybody, myself included, is happy with the quality of the Trump election legal team…

“I’m still a little concerned about the use of Rudy Giuliani. It strikes me that this is the most important lawsuit in the history of the country, and they’re not using the most well-noted election lawyers,” [Nick] Mulvaney, who served as President Donald Trump’s top aide from January 2019-March 2020, told Fox Business.

There are folks who do this all of the time. This is a specialty. This is not a television program. This is the real thing,” Mulvaney said. “And I was struck by a couple things that Rudy said in court yesterday. So on one hand, I think it needs to go forward. It absolutely does. I wish that it was being prosecuted a little more efficiently.”

Mulvaney’s assessment came after Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, filed a last-minute petition in federal court on Tuesday morning to represent the Trump campaign in its controversial lawsuit seeking to challenge the election results in Pennsylvania.

The former New York mayor proceeded to turn in a dramatic courtroom appearance on Tuesday afternoon, but struggled at times to answer the judge’s questions and mount an effective argument to back up the Trump campaign’s baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. <Source>

Is this becoming a “pay the attorneys” scheme?

Bottom line…

If this is the Kraken, I am less than impressed. As the former Chief Technologist of a computer company and a designer of financial software systems, from what I have observed with the handling of the CF (Compact Flash) memory cards and the temporary loss of thousands of votes, the system appears to be poorly designed and should not be certified until it is examined by independent forensic experts.

The primary issue with these voter inquiries is that those who are demanding evidence forget that the challengers do not have subpoena power to compel a forensic examination of the electronic voting systems and procedures. It is a time-consuming process that may be fought long after the inauguration. It may very well be that Biden will become an illegitimate President with little or no remedy for the American people. The state legislatures should return to their original rules and throw out all non-conforming votes.

It still looks more and more like a last-ditch Hail Mary play to blame electronic voting systems designed and operated by those with malevolent intent focused on Donald Trump.

We are so screwed.

AMERICA: HERE IS A TASTE OF THE UPCOMING BANANNA REPUBLIC COURTESY OF THE PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS

The amount of pressure to keep conservatives from asking questions about the election or commenting on irregularities is ramping up...

Disappeared by Google without warning…

Today, November 19, 2020, at 6:35 a.m., the web traffic linking to yesterday’s blog post “2020 ELECTIONS: IF THIS IS THE KRAKEN, IT IS AS SCARY AS COTTON CANDY” dropped precipitously. Checking the incoming traffic logs, it appeared that any referrals from Google had stopped – with traffic from Microsoft’s Bing and DuckDuckGo continuing as normal.

I had vanished much like other disappeared conservatives -- dropped by Google’s search algorithm into the uncharted ocean of data.

Here are the results of an “exact match” search on Google, Microsoft Bing, and DuckDuckGo…

As you can see, exact match searches returned top-line results in both Bing and DuckDuckGo, with only an incidentals mentions in Google -- not the post itself-- that was part of another blog or my blog page index.

This is becoming a pattern and practice facing conservatives in this increasingly authoritarian world where the mainstream media and the oligarchs of the social media platforms have assumed power over people, politicians, and our uniquely American culture.

Disappeared from MailChimp, the email service provider, without explanation and zero warning…

Atlanta, Georgia-based Mailchimp, the marketing automation platform and email marketing service founded by tech billionaire Ben Chestnut is joining other “woke” progressive organizations in suppressing or censoring your conservative content, especially if you supported Donald Trump.  MAILCHIMP

“Our Co-founder and CEO, Ben Chestnut, announced that Mailchimp is offering price relief for organizations working to end social injustice in the United States in response to the murder of George Floyd and the nationwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism.” <Source>

Fighting back...

Demand legislation that removes the legal, safe harbor for any organization that acts as a content-controlling publisher rather than content-neutral platforms.

Use a more honest search engine.

Screw with the system. See an email with a Mailchimp indicia, report its contents as objectionable or spam regardless of the content. Make random entries on a Mailchimp survey

Find better vendors to support your marketing efforts.  

Bottom line…

Discovery among the growing number of internet offers is a necessity for business survival. Pretty much why search engines stopped being conveniences and morphed into what should be public utilities, regulated to ensure fairness and to prevent deliberate abuses of power by their owners. It is analogous to other corporations that are attempting to enforce their morality by social engineering their customers -- like credit card companies refusing to process payments from conservative organizations or banks refusing to make loans to manufacturers or sellers of firearms.

Be extremely careful when relying on search engine results or outsourcing critical business operations to vendors like Mailchimp who have weaponized their unilateral “take it or leave it” terms of service to push their toxic woke progressive socialist democrat ideology.

If the mainstream media and tech oligarchs were intellectually honest, one would think they would have a problem with Democrats, the party of slavery, segregation, racism, division, and the KKK. But, then there is Ben Chestnut donating $1,000 to Stacy Abrams, the black progressive socialist democrat activist/agitator who thinks she is the Governor of Georgia after losing the election. Where are her “fact checks?”

We are so screwed when we find ourselves at the mercy of media moguls and tech tyrants.

2020 ELECTIONS: NO KRAKEN? NOTHING TO SEE, MOVE ALONG

vote-day-after-15

It is Day + 15, votes are still being counted and recounted in some precincts as the acrimonious rhetoric on both sides continues, and court appearances appear to be ending in unfavorable outcomes.

Most of the court cases were generalized to issues involving mail-in votes that were treated differently than the in-person votes (equal protection), that ballots were opened, processed, and counted without sufficient observation safeguards by poll-watchers (illegal votes), and illegal changes in rules (due process). And, when cases were particularized, the outcome was found to affect only a small number of votes. Some of the attorneys are suggesting that they are not worried about losing in order to trigger an appeal, perhaps rising to the United States Supreme Court.

It appears that Sidney Powell’s threat to release “The Kraken,” a mythical octopus-like sea monster, with a sworn affidavit from an individual with insider knowledge of electronic voting systems, did not materialize. It still looks more and more like a last-ditch Hail Mary play to blame electronic voting systems designed and operated by those with malevolent intent focused on Donald Trump. Powell claims she has "firsthand evidence" that Smartmatic voting software was designed in a way to change the vote of a voter without being detected and that the same software may be incorporated in Dominion’s system.

Georgia attorney, Lin Wood, appears to be leading the charge in Georgia. Wood repeats many of the Sidney Powell allegations. 

Considering that first-person narratives can be motivated by money, media attention, employment opportunities, disinformation campaigns, revenge, etc., they serve little purpose without corroboration in the physical world such as documentation, code snippets, programs, computer chips, and memory devices, or by multiple independent sources, with extra caution of allegations made by foreign operatives or those connected to shadowy individuals and organizations.

What do you expect them to say?

There will always be procedural errors, discrepancies, and human screw-ups in every election; however, any remedy that disenfranchises large numbers of voters is likely to unacceptable to the courts and likely to provoke anger in militant voters.

MICHIGAN

Wayne Co. canvassers certify election results after initial deadlock.

"After hours of angry responses from Wayne County residents,the change in course was approved by the two Republican and two Democratic canvassers with the demand that the Secretary of State's office conduct a "comprehensive audit" of precincts with unexplained out-of-balance tallies."

"The Wayne County Board of Canvassers deadlocked 2-2 Tuesday along party lines on whether the county's Nov. 3 election results should be certified, delaying the conclusion of Michigan's canvassing process as at least four state and federal lawsuits seek to do the same."

"The decision came after absentee ballot poll books at 70% of Detroit's 134 absentee counting boards were found to be out of balance without explanation." <Source>

[OCS: Wayne County includes predominantly black Detroit.]


GEORGIA

"During the hand recount Tuesday, Fayette County uncovered 2,755 votes that were not included in the initial count.

Secretary of State official Gabriel Sterling said those ballots were scanned onto a card, but those votes were never uploaded into the initial count.

He says there were several backups designed to catch this issue and that it falls to workers who didn’t follow procedure.

Of the votes that are now being added to the total, 1,577 were for President Donald Trump, 1,128 for Joe Biden and the rest were for Jo Jorgenson or write-ins.

Fayette is the second county to report an issue with missing votes.

On Monday, Floyd County uncovered 2,600 votes that were missed during the initial count on election night. Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine."<Source>

JOINT STATEMENT FROM ELECTIONS INFRASTRUCTURE GOVERNMENT COORDINATING COUNCIL & THE ELECTION INFRASTRUCTURE SECTOR COORDINATING EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES

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

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

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

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

[OCS: What “they” did not highlight was that the statement  was ridiculously self-serving and contained material errors.]

2020 ELECTIONS: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE -- TODAY'S NARRATIVE

It is Day + 14, votes are still being counted and recounted in some precincts and the acrimonious rhetoric continues.

There does not appear to be any further movement in making a credible case for a massive, pervasive, and coordinated attack on the 2020 elections until today's planned Powell court filing in Georgia. Many of the filed court cases look suspiciously like delay and distract tactics while more information is gathered on a  Hail Mary play involving the examination of electronic voting systems.

We are also seeing a number of government and congressional players attack President Trump as they prepare for what they see is a January 20th inauguration of a new President. 

vote-day-after-14

Let us not forget some basic facts:

(1)  President Trump has spent his entire business career, a significant portion of his life, embroiled in litigation. Not necessarily to win court cases, but to renege or escape responsibility for deals that went South, to avoid criminal and civil penalties, to improve the terms and conditions of a deal, to lower taxes, to obtain favorable zoning, and to bully others into submission and acceptance of his terms and conditions.

While we all may assume that Donald Trump wants to retain the Presidency, we do not know his real motives, which might include saving face for an ego-crushing loss, perfecting his claim of actually winning the Presidency, but stepping aside for the good of the country, setting up control of the Republican Party and act as a shadow President, or simply something as transactional as stopping any current or planned prosecution by partisans regarding the activities of himself or his children.

(2)  As for his front-line attorneys with storied backgrounds and fearsome reputations, they are all creatures of the media, and as with many attorneys, need to burnish or improve their own reputations as straight-shooters fearlessly presenting facts while under attack by a hostile media. They do not necessarily have to win an unwinnable case to walk away as a winner and able to attract other high-profile cases or positions as media commentators.

(3)  As fantastic as a conspiracy narrative might seem, it could be true given the millions of dollars spent on investigations, thousands of hours of sworn testimony, millions of pages of documentation, and the involvement of high-ranking government officials in what is termed the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. A hoax that arose from a not-so-creative narrative and piece of fiction known as the Steele Dossier created and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee -- often one-in-the-same when you consider that Clintonistas ran the DNC.

(4)  That Biden's entire campaign was based on "Orange Man Bad" and not challenged by a corrupt and progressive mainstream media and aided-and-abetted by the social media oligarchs is a story in itself that lends credence to a wide-ranging loosely-coupled conspiracy.

(5)  Our nation is under attack by a fifth column that seeks to destroy America from within. They, primarily the communists, have infiltrated the Democrat Party and most of our institutional infrastructure: in government, in education, in media, in the unions, in the environmental movement, and are leading a political and cultural revolution to destroy the America we know and love. Starting with our cherished Constitution that guarantees our inalienable rights and limits the power of the federal government. They are sowing the seeds of identity politics, which are resulting in fear, disorder, violence, and more class and race hatred.

(6) A corporatized media and a number of "woke" corporations are selling America out, some as virtue-signaling by their executives, others to avoid reputational damage, and others because it seems good business to pander to the most vocal elements of society.

(7)  Many high-ranking individuals are mistaking the crap they see on social media as being reflective of wider views of a majority of Americans when it could be simply the act of a pimply-faced 16-year-old outcast sitting in his proverbial basement eating Cheetos and drinking energy drinks.

Down the rabbit hole: the narrative today:

The argument appears to be, at least in the media, that there may be a widespread conspiracy, coup 3.0, to disrupt the 2020 elections on behalf of unspecified foreign actors or perhaps deep-state members of our intelligence, law enforcement, and those who may face an existential threat from ongoing investigations. Perhaps, one reason that the long-promised Durham Report is being withheld by the Attorney General.

What “they” are saying…

Twenty-eight states used Dominion Voting Systems, among them states with statistically high voter turnout, publicly acknowledged procedural errors, and the denial of credentialed GOP poll-watchers.

It has been confirmed that Dominion Voting Systems' response to the the City of Philadelphia's request for proposals for an election system, contained redacted entries in response to a question regarding foreign ownership or investors, as well as other “suspicious” redactions, including a section regarding the origin of system components and foreign countries using their systems.

Redact-ownership

[OCS: It is not unusual for vendors to redact customer lists, financials, equipment sourcing, operational details, and other proprietary information from public-facing documents, but provide the unredacted information to those evaluating the proposal. It is also normal and customary for a multi-national company to have foreign ownership and investors, some of whom may be Americans and some of whom may be associated with politics.

If you are interested in Dominion voting systems -- check out the progressive Public Broadcasting System's October 26, 2020 piece "Will Georgia’s new voting machines solve election problems — or make them worse?" They even speak about election security and procedural issues. They compare the system's software with the ill-fated Boeing 737MAX software -- not good! This piece justifies the inquiries into the Dominion system and the possibility of serious systemic issues that could have compromised the 2020 election.]

That ballot information, vote totals, logon credentials and operational logs were stored in a foreign database managed by a company experiencing financial difficulty, based in Spain and with servers located in Frankfurt, Germany. Twitter rumors that these servers were confiscated by members of U.S. intelligence or the U.S. Army were cited by  Republican Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas who admitted “I don’t know the truth.”

[OCS: It is not unusual for information to be stored in a third-party-hosted database and the data could have been as easily hosted on publicly-available systems hosted by Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and others. It is also likely that foreign clients would also object to having their election information stored on American servers. To the extent that a Member of Congress repeated an unsubstantiated rumor is simply another politician that cannot resist the cameras and the need to be first – whether the information is right, wrong, or somewhere in-between.]

The procedural safeguards are weak or non-existent as election personnel were instructed to cut-and-paste voter files onto a CF (Compact Flash) card like those found in your camera and transmit that information to the proper authorities.

[OCS: This is an uncontrolled process that should have been automated, menu-driven, and logged. This is sloppy design, perhaps necessitated by the need for multiple transmission modes or simply used as a backup. While the procedure is described, with illustrations, in the operator’s handbook, there is no indication of the reasoning for using such a procedure.]

Who Is Peter Neffenger? Vice Admiral (USCG, ret) Neffenger is an experienced national security official who was added to the Biden/Harris transition team. More importantly, Neffenger was appointed by former-President Barack Obama to be the Administrator of the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and served from 2015 until 2017.

What makes Neffenger a “person of interest" (in the non-legal sense) is that he was the Chairman of another election systems company, Smartmatic, providing election services in the United States and which was also connected with Scytl and used its servers.

It appears that Smartmatic software is embedded in almost all election systems and might be the suspect vote-scraping software that may have altered the 2020 election.

[OCS: Let’s play “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” to see what chain can be created to link assumed innocent individuals to more nefarious players. Considering that most top-level people may know one another or have attended the same schools, conferences, or social events, this is not dispositive of wrongdoing. And, of course, having a high-ranking former official on a company’s board is a necessity of business when it comes to winning government contracts.] 

Bottom line…

Since there are no national or international standards for election systems and the various local and state entities are in charge of their own voting procedures and equipment, this is a topic worthy of investigation and regulation. Were election systems, said to have been used to manipulate votes in foreign countries, used in the United States? Beats me! And I have absolutely no confidence in the Department of Justice or the FBI – so we will never likely know the truth about anything that occurred in the last 12 years (including the Obama era).

Both former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Michael Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, have a mountain to climb before they can produce evidence of vote-tampering in a court of competent jurisdiction.

According to Sidney Powell, she has an affidavit from someone who may have been involved in the subversion of foreign votes and explains how it may have been done in the 2020 election -- and that the vote count stoppage was related to resetting certain counts that changed the election from a Trump win to a Biden win. Nobody expected the Trump landslide, so vote totals had to be recomputed. It may have also been used to give Hillary Clinton a win over Bernie Sanders in 2016 in California.

Powell also says that people close to Trump in the White House are urging her to stop looking at the system. Today, the information is scheduled to be filed in the Georgia case and made available to officials in Pennsylvania. 

It is now my belief and fear that President Trump may concede, announce that the election was stolen, and continue with being Donald Trump, citizen and political superhero or evil villain depending on who is speaking -- before the process plays out.

If this vote manipulation is true. it will be up to the state legislatures to invalidate the popular vote and direct the electors to vote for Trump. Can't wait to read the Powell filing.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: THE CRAZINESS CONTNUES

It is Day + 13, and we are still counting and recounting ballots as the rhetoric continues to heat up. By now, everyone has heard about the first-person sworn allegations of voter fraud and the potential manipulation of electronic voting systems.  However, there does not appear to be any further movement in making a credible case for a massive, pervasive, and coordinated attack on the 2020 elections.

Is it “material?”

There will always be procedural errors, discrepancies, and human screw-ups in every election; however, any remedy that disenfranchises a large number of voters is likely to unacceptable to the court.

So I am becoming increasingly skeptical that some lawsuits, when analyzed by the Court, will only result in a few thousand impacted ballots -- not raising substantial allegations that rise to actionable “material fraud.” In fact, the allegations appear to be muddled between systematic (or programmatic) assertions and particularized assertions supported with sworn affidavits.

I am also noticing a major difference between news releases and the actual court filings, primarily in the use of lawyerly weasel words such as “meaningful,” “complete, access.” and the old favorite, “generally.” Weasel words that are specifically used to create the impression of something specific and meaningful when the actual allegation is vague, ambiguous, and almost irrelevant when it comes to materiality. Look for a defense along the lines of “factually-deficient allegations are egregious examples of generic boilerplate.”

How do you cure massive procedural mistakes?

California is a one-party state with a Democrat super-majority that can alter election procedures at will to benefit the Democrat Party.

A ruling from a judge for California's Sutter County Superior Court says that an executive order from the state's Gov. Gavin Newsom is void.

"Executive Order N-67-20 issued by the Governor on June 3, 2020 is void as an unconstitutional exercise of legislative power and shall be of no further force or effect," the ruling states. "The California Emergency Services Act (CA Government Code §8550 et seq.) does not authorize or empower the Governor of the State of California to amend statutory law or make new statutory law, which is exclusively a legislative function not delegated to the Governor under the CESA."

The executive order from Newsom included a section calling for registered California voters to receive vote-by-mail ballots. Newsom reportedly issued the order prior to the state legislature approving a similar law.

"As provided by Executive Order N-64-20, all Californians who are registered (and otherwise eligible) to vote in the November 3, 2020 General Election shall receive vote-by-mail ballots," part of Newsom's order said. <Source>

As long as the legislature backstopped the Governor, nothing can be done to procedurally invalidate a mass of ballots. Similarly, in many states, there may not be a remedy short of holding another election or disenfranchising a majority of voters.

At this point in time, it appears that the problem we are facing is one of narrative and proportionality. I do not see anything that would switch the election to Trump's favor barring the discovery of a major nationwide conspiracy that combined government agencies, the Democratic National Committee, and major media corporations.

Fighting the media: the rise of platforms, podcasts, and programming…

In joining the progressive socialist democrats in their political battles, many of the major social media platforms have decimated legitimate content creators holding a contrarian perspective with their censorship policies. Many of these name-brand individuals turn to alternatives, podcasts hosted on now-neutral platforms, the Twitter alternative Parler.com, and the YouTube Alternative Rumble.com. People are fighting back by clicking on expensive ads for products they do not intend to purchase. Not only can this deceptive practice cost advertisers a major portion of their advertising budget, but it also pollutes advertising profiles, which result in non-productive targeted advertising.

We have been notified that "The Conservative Treehouse" is being de-platformed with a terse notice, "…given the incompatibility between your site’s content and our terms, you need to find a new hosting provider and must migrate the site by Wednesday, December 2nd." Here is a company with a large investment of time, effort, and content that is being given the boot -- because of their conservative commentary and analysis. This looks suspiciously like an organization that does not serve liability protections as a platform and should be treated like any other publisher of third-party content. CTH should be thankful that their hosting company's software is ubiquitous and can be hosted on other providers with a minimum of effort. Not so for many sites hosted on proprietary platforms. 

Could silence be golden?

Knowing that President Trump has been characterized as “pragmatic” or “transactional,” I can’t help but wonder if President Trump is cutting some form of deal that, in return for an early nationwide concession speech, he and his children would be granted immunity for any local, state, or federal claim of wrongdoing. Perhaps a blanket pardon from the Biden administration and an understanding that no democrat entity would seek to prosecute Trump, his family, or his companies for their past and present activities in any Democrat-controlled local or state venue.

Continued conspiracy craziness…

Just when you thought it couldn't get weirder or more fanciful, we start hearing rumblings from a member of congress and a well respected nationally recognized attorney that this might be coup 3.0, a last-ditch attempt by the intelligence and law enforcement agencies to avoid the ultimate retribution, complete with tales of foreign involvement of people located in Spain and Germany. Crazy? Any crazier than British spies, Russian operatives, and a pee-pee tape involving a notorious germaphobe?

In speaking with Maria Bartiromo, Sidney Powell Outlines Biden Transition Team Member Peter Neffenger is part of the Smartmatic Voting Machine Fraud and that the  CIA is also connected to Dominion Software. Powell also notes the CIA has a relationship with Dominion and Smartmatic software providers who have used their election counting products in foreign countries. <Source>

Bottom line…

What a Biden victory actually means is becoming abundantly clear. New facts do not often sway long-held opinions, especially after the Democrats were being told Trump supporters are evil in all media, 24/7 --  so there is little chance of unity.

There is a clear and present danger to this nation’s election infrastructure, and that greater controls need to be exerted over ballots and procedures, including the necessity for voter identification and prohibitions on ballot harvesting.

The Clinton-era corruption and weaponized intelligence, law enforcement, tax, environmental and other agencies have now been institutionalized as Democrat-controlled entities. Corrupt individuals in the government and those in the private sector who profit from systemic waste, fraud, and abuse are being given a pass that absolves them of wrongdoing.

One might ask, where is the long-awaited Durham Report that we were promised last summer? Where are the Department of Justice and FBI indictments on the most obvious of criminal activities? Where is our Supreme Court, where the Chief Justice appears to have issues with reading, understanding, and upholding the Constitution?

The local and state government officials who asserted wide-spread unconstitutional exercises of legislative powers that circumvent some of our civil liberties to fight the Covid-19 pandemic are unlikely to give up such power voluntarily, especially in Democrat-controlled venues.

2020 ELECTIONS: IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING -- INVESTIGATE OR STFU

It is Day + 12, and we are still counting and recounting ballots as first-person sworn allegations of voter fraud continue to be filed with various state and federal courts.  However, after reading voting equipment manuals and many of the sworn affidavits, I believe that the Trump campaign can make a credible case for a massive, pervasive, and coordinated attack on the 2020 elections.

vote-day-after-12

Again, that is not to say that the amount of any voter fraud discovered will be sufficient to reverse the election or that any Court is willing to provide the relief requested. But I do believe that enough evidence might be provided to delay or deny certification of the election results – enough to throw this matter into the House of Representatives.

I find that President Trump is uncharacteristically quiet, leading me to believe that he may make a national address and reveal more of the fraud details to the American people. In the meanwhile, ask yourself why the mainstream media is not covering these allegations in-depth, doing their own audits and witness interviews,  and the billionaire social media oligarchs are continuing their censorship beyond the actual election?

Even more troubling than the media blackout and social media censorship is the silence from the Department of Justice and the FBI. Is this FBI Director Christopher Wray’s audition to keep the rest of his 10-year job in a Biden Administration? Where is John Durham's promised report?

If the media served as an honest broker of the news, why are many journalists remaining silent or refusing to acknowledge the evidence being gathered – other than to issue blanket denials of election fraud without any evidence? Seeming to ignore that breaking developments regarding election fraud could change the election – especially down-ballot results. The truth is simple: there is the possibility of major systemic ballot irregularities which could cause disputed vote totals and result in leadership changes that would impose tremendous costs on Americans and other nations around the globe.

Rational versus irrational responses to election fraud… What is this Twitterverse crap: mysterious happenings involving foreign companies, foreign countries, intelligence agencies, the U.S. Army?

How is it that Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) comments on a foreign company’s potential interference in the 2020 election, mentions the potential involvement of U.S. intelligence and military participation in server confiscations in Frankfurt, Germany – and then says, “I Don’t Know the Truth?”

A Twitterverse Tweet rebuffed by Scytl, a provider of electronic voting systems and election technology, in a statement on its website. Why would anyone place their credibility on the line for a specious rumor? Some say Gohmert knows more than he is telling, precisely the same position taken by those who believe Representative Adam Schiff’s Shiffload of proof of Trump/Russia collusion.

“In the November 13 video conference, Gohmert said he received information from ‘former intel people’ that there was ‘extremely compelling evidence that could be gleaned from Scytl.’ The congressman went on to say that Scytl would have information on how many votes had been switched from Republican to Democrat during the 2020 election. Gohmert said, “What were the votes going in? And which ones were changed going out?”

“Gohmert said that his former intel contact asked him to send on all of the information that needed to be gathered from Scytl. Gohmert said that he sent the information the following day, November 9. Gohmert then mentioned a tweet written in German that was published on November 8 which alleged that Scytl’s headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, was raided by members of the U.S. Army.”

Is it even true that U.S. election data is being processed or analyzed outside of the United States in near real-time? Given the media’s reporting of eyewitness testimony and sworn statements from the intelligence and law enforcement community concerning the involvement of British Intelligence in the 2016 U.S. election, one does not know who to believe – and crazy-talk from our elected officials and mainstream media does not help discern the truth.

This also illustrates the danger of censorship on technology platforms pose – there is no way to receive information from individuals on the ground. Yes, some of the information might be bat-shit crazy, wrong, or the product of malevolent actors – but you cannot trust the platform operators to divine the truth.

Bottom line…

There is little doubt in my mind that this coordinated attack to weaken our election system started with the 2016 elections and a cadre of progressive socialist democrat attorneys who muscled individual local and state functionaries for rules changes and took to the courts when necessary. It would be interesting to review the number of bogus democrat lawsuits that were deliberately lost or settled by agreement with elected or appointed democrat officials.     

The political climate in American is changing, as it often has throughout our brief history. The evidence suggests voters are playing a minor role, as they are being manipulated by the wealthy, the special interests, and the media.  A narrowly-divided America seems to be their goal as it is a narrowly-divided America that can be the easiest influenced by a relatively small change in the number of votes recorded. Whether, in the present political climate, the results of the 2020 election will be beneficial to the American public remains to be seen.

One would think that the Biden campaign would join with the Trump campaign to resolve issues of alleged ballot tampering, if for no other reason to declare the legitimacy of his administration. That the Biden campaign and the media remain silent is a giant red flag. 

We are so screwed.
