There is rampant election fraud in Connecticut and throughout the nation. It is a serious problem that we must address. We go to bed on election night thinking one candidate won, only to find the results miraculously shifted overnight. Election fraud is not a new problem, it is decades old, and there are many ways it happens. Its not just absentee ballots that are a problem. Voter fraud is not partisan, both sides can and have used these tools to cheat. We know this, we see this, not just once for one office, but many times, for many offices at the local and federal level. Let's get real!
We need to stop election fraud, and we NEED TO DO IT NOW! This will be a series of articles and I invite my readers to join in the research that I present. Many eyes on the problem will helps us to come to real and hard solutions. It was a reader that tipped me off to the different elements of election fraud in Connecticut that she found while auditing the vote. It is very concerning and has many parts to cover. Before we get to her story. Let us start from the beginning and take a look at the voting infrastructure we have now.
Diebold is a private company that profits from making voting machines. Don't you find that odd? Diebold was sued for anti trust and rebranded itself as Premier Elections. Doesn't this make you cringe?! Help America Vote Act aka HAVA enacted in 2002 ushered in the wild west of digital voting machines. How ingenious of the government, collect votes, spend tax dollars, and a private company makes a profit. This alone is worrisome but even more concerning is how the government lowered the typical standards for digital security when it comes to electronic voting machines, making them egregiously easy to hack and manipulate. From memory cards to tabulators, it’s shady and hackable.
The recent lawsuit filed against Fox News by Dominion, who is Diebold, is peculiar. It has been known for many years that Diebold is hackable. Hacking Democracy - The Hack, a documentary about hacking elections. Aired on HBO in 2014 and is linked in this article below. Independent journalist Greg Palast wrote extensively on election fraud in the early 2000s when we could still talk about it publicly, and mainstream media would still report on it to some extent. The current censorship and outright weaponization of our system against anyone who brings this up should be an alarm bell in every American’s head!
“PALAST: You may have already voted in 2004; they just haven’t told you how. Last year, our President signed a law, with little fanfare, called the Help America Vote Act. As soon as the Bush family tells us that they’re gonna help us vote, I say, “Look out.” Sure enough, go into the details of it, and it has that old Florida swamp smell. I’ve been working with Martin Luther King III, and he’s calling this the . of the nation. This law is going to provide $3.9 billion of your tax money to computerize the voting systems of America. We’re going to have computer screens in the voting booths. The administration has put to death any plan that would allow you to have some type of backup paper ballot or receipt. Which is pretty strange when you think about it. You get a Slurpee from a 7-Eleven; you get a receipt. You vote for President of the United States, and you get no record to prove exactly how you voted.”
Did you know?
“One of the world’s largest ATM manufacturers and, formerly, one of the largest manufacturers of electronic voting systems, has been indicted by federal prosecutors for bribery and falsification of documents.
The charges represent only the latest in a long series of criminal and/or unethical misconduct by Diebold, Inc. and their executives over the past decade.”
Makes you feel confident that Dominion, Diebold, Premier, or whatever they may call themselves is legitimate and our elections are secure? Stalin said, “The people who cast the votes don't decide an election, the people who count the votes do.” The super majority in our legislator is ushering in an agenda that is turning our state into a depressing dystopia beyond our wildest imagination! Nothing will stop them until we have secure elections. Connecticut is like a bad soap opera, everywhere I turn there is corruption and fraud that runs like a well oiled machine.
I leave you with these quotes and links.
"In 2002, Diebold Inc., a well established manufacturer of bank vaults, automatic teller machines and other security-related products, bought Global to create Diebold Election Systems Inc. Global and Diebold continued to make the AccuVote ES-2000, although the name changed to the Accurate OS, standing for Optical Scan, to distinguish it from the AccuVote TS, the touch-screen voting system that Global acquired with the purchase of I-Mark Systems.
In 2006, Diebold re-branded their election services department as Premier Election Solution and Premier purchased in 2009 by Election Systems and Software (ES&S) and was subsequently sold to Dominon Voting following a 2010 antitrust settlement."
We found the Premier software to be unstable. Frequent crashes, system lock-ups, and unexplained errors were commonplace in our experiments. Stability problems were acute in the GEMS server, where failures occurred during normal use and under limited loads.
“Our findings are consistent with those of previous studies. When taken as a whole, this and previous studies highlight a central point of concern: there is a demonstrative lack of improvement in the security of elections conducted using the Premier system. Initial reviews of the Premier system were undertaken as early as 2001. After six years of reviews and many new software and hardware upgrades, reviewers not only continue to find the same and similar problems as reported earlier, but continue to uncover new serious issues. Thus, the only reasonable conclusion that one can draw is the engineering approaches undertaken by Premier to eliminate previous problems and avoid new ones are failing.”
