“Why am I always being asked to prove these systems aren’t secure? The burden of proof ought to be on the vendor. You ask about the hardware. ‘Secret.’ The software? ‘Secret.’ What’s the cryptography? ‘Can’t tell you because that’ll compromise the secrecy of the machines.’… Federal testing procedures? ‘Secret’! Results of the tests? ‘Secret’! Basically we are required to have blind faith.” —Dr. David L. Dill, Professor, Computer Science, Stanford University, as cited by Ronnie Dugger in his article, “How They Could Steal the Election This Time”, which appeared in the August 16, 2004 edition of The Nation magazine.
Election Night Gatekeepers
ELECTION NIGHT GATEKEEPERS – THE EVIDENCE
Elections have been taken out of the hands of the American people by an alliance of 12 tricky and seditious Election Night Gatekeepers, agents of the coalition of money interests behind them. The purpose of this article is to explain how this happened, how we can maybe stop them from falsifying the election results to install Hillary Clinton as President in 2016, and how we can reverse the situation and restore transparent, honest elections.
The fact is that only 3 mega-election vendors have the power to install Trump or Hillary Clinton into the Presidency in the 2016 Presidential election. And the 5 Big TV Networks enable these three privately owned corporations (ES &S, Hart, Dominion) to have this power by hiding their very existence from the American people, as well as their KEY and DOMINATING role on Election Night. Have you ever heard of ES &S, Hart, or Dominion? Probably not.
These three mega-corporations could make the election computers say that Trump “won” 99% to 1%, or they could make the election computers say that Hillary Clinton “won” 99% to 1% – or anything in between. But what they and the other Election Night Gatekeepers announce MUST be believable, so that the American people accept the results, whether true — or whether grotesquely falsified by the Election Night Gatekeepers.
“Making the computer-generated election night results believable” is the purpose of the endless, mysteriously-done “black box” public opinion polls treated so reverently by the 5 Big TV Networks in the months and weeks leading up to election day. And it is also the purpose of the mysteriously-done exit polls taken on election day by another one of the Election Night Gatekeepers (National Election Pool, owned by the 5 big TV networks and AP wire).
For starters, since at least as far back as 1988, a handful of private corporations have totally controlled the “count” of 96% of the ballots in the USA for the November elections. Election officials in 98%+ of our counties have effectively stepped aside and turned over our elections to one of these few mega-election vendors.
Furthermore, local election officials in each county which use election computers sign contracts that they are forbidden to look at the source codes of the privately owned computer software which tell the county computers what to do on election night. (!!!) (See YouTube video with Ohio Secretary of State John Husted confirming this during a Tea Party meeting at “The Farm” on September 17, 2012.)
By now, in 2016, only three computerized Election Vendor companies have total control over the published election night “results” as explained above. These private companies, again, are ES &S, Hart Intercivic, and Dominion (which bought Diebold and Sequoia circa 2013). These companies “count” the votes on secret software programs — programs easily rigged by these same companies, which, of course, own the software.
The 5 Big TV Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX) and related big media protect these three mega-Election Vendors (ES & S, Hart, Dominion) by never (or almost never) mentioning them. 99% of the American people have never even heard of ES &S, Hart Civic, or Dominion. The American people certainly don’t know the key and absolutely dominating role that these 3 mega-Election Vendors play on election night. And the Big TV Networks NEVER do investigations into these three mega-companies, never ask how it is possible that 98%+ of our 3141 counties in the USA have hired them, never ask the county election officials or Secretaries of State why these election officials have signed a contract forbidding them to look at the software of the 3 big Election Vendors, never question in any way this unholy concentration of power in the hands of so few on election night, and never invite the American people to think about these disturbing election night realities.
What Happens On Election Night in the USA?
This is what happens on the night of the November election across the USA since at least as far back as 1988:
Four Three Mysterious Mega-Companies “count” about 95% of the US vote on secret software which they own – and our local election officials in each county incredibly sign a contract not to look at the software which tells the election computers what to do on election night. (!!!)
For the last three decades, 4 (now 3, since 2013) mega-companies have “counted” around 96% of the USA vote on November election nights. In 2004 these companies were ES & S (Election Systems & Software), Hart Civic, Diebold, and Sequoia. Veteran reporter Ronnie Dugger covered this reality in his 2004 article in The Nation magazine entitled, “How They could Steal the Election This Time”.Understanding this aspect of election night is so important that I am going to quote from the first part of the Dugger article:
On November 2[nd 2004] millions of Americans will cast their votes for President in computerized voting systems that can be rigged by corporate . . . insiders. . . . The potential for fraud and error is daunting. About 61 million of the votes in November, more than half the total, will be counted in the computers of one company, the privately held Election Systems and Software (ES&S) of Omaha, Nebraska.
Altogether, nearly 100 million votes will be counted in computers provided and programmed by ES&S and three other private corporations: British-owned Sequoia Voting Systems of Oakland, California, whose touch-screen voting equipment was rejected as insecure against fraud by New York City in the 1990s; . . . Diebold Election Systems of McKinney, Texas, whose machines malfunctioned this year in a California election; and Hart InterCivic of Austin . . .
The four major election corporations count votes with voting-system source codes. These are kept strictly secret by contract with the local jurisdictions and states using the machines. . . . David Stutsman, an Indiana [election] lawyer . . . puts it well: “The secrecy of the ballot has been turned into the secrecy of the vote count.”
End Quote from the 2004 Nation magazine article by Ronnie Dugger (the entire article is worth reading)
Diebold’s Name Gets Too Stinky
In 2004, one of the officers of Diebold said in public that Diebold was going to make sure that W. Bush got re-elected. Ever since then, Diebold had become the symbol of election rigging. So — DAMAGE CONTROL!
Circa 2013, a company called Dominion bought Diebold and Sequoia. So that’s why we have the number “13” crossed out in the earlier part of this article, as now there are only 12 Election Night gatekeepers. We also have the number “4” crossed out, as now only 3 mega-corporations count about 96% of the US vote.
A word about the musical chairs played by these super powerful mega-corporations, which never change their stripes, their secrecy, or their mode of operation. They only change their names and locations. As an example, CES (Computer Election Services) was based in California in the 70s and early 80s. Then CES morphed into BRC (Business Records Corporation) based in Texas for the 80s and part of the 90s. BRC then became ES & S around the turn of the century. Another example of musical chairs involves how another of the Election Night Gatekeepers, Voter News Service (owned by the 5 Big TV Networks and AP wire) morphed into National Election Pool after 2004, which will be further explained below.
So, the first three major gatekeepers on Election Night in November are the three mega-corporations which “count” the votes for 99% of 3200+ counties in the USA:
– 1. ES & S (Election Systems & Software) – see pdf below about the recent merger
Election Systems & Software/Premier Election Solutions Merger
– 2. Hart Civic
– 3. Dominion (recently bought Diebold and Sequoia)
PLEASE NOTE, as stated above: These 3 mega-corporations do NOT break into the system. One of these companies, or one of their more recently appearing smaller front companies, are hired by each county. There are 3200+ counties in the USA. Starting circa 1973 and culminating by 1988, 99% of these counties made the decision to hire one of these companies. For instance, Hamilton County (Cincinnati), Ohio uses Hart Civic. Butler County, Ohio (the largest county in former Speaker of the House John Boehner’s former district) hires ES & S. And all of South Carolina hires ES & S.
(Please note: In South Carolina the ES &S systems are touch screen only — with no paper ballots at all! In a recent Fox News spot carried during “On the Record”, designed to convince the viewers that it would be difficult to hack the Presidential election (false!), Brit Hume did ask the experts one valuable question about regions such as South Carolina which have no paper ballots. Hume asked (paraphrase): “So there’s no way to do a recount?” The experts said, “Right.” (!!!!!!!!)
Why do almost all of our nation’s 3141 counties hire so few companies to process “our” elections? That question brings us to the next two Election night gatekeepers:
– 4. The RNC (Republican National Committee)
– 5. The DNC (Democratic National Committee)
The RNC and the DNC are obviously controlled by the same background financial forces (the Goldman-Sachs/Federal Reserve Board crowd, for shorthand) which own the billion dollar Election Vendor companies, ES &S, Hart Civic, and Dominion. The RNC and the DNC both recommend to all of their 50 Secretaries of State in all 50 states to approve these three mega-companies for vote processing. Each county in each state is then strongly encouraged to hire one these three companies, to contract with them to process the county elections. The late Collier Brothers (authors of “Votescam: The Stealing of America”, 1993) felt that massive bribes have changed hands, especially in the 1970s and 1980s, to induce counties which were resisting the Big Computerized Election Vendors – to hire them.
The county Boards of Elections are told that any one of these three companies will process the elections professionally and virtually trouble free. The local Board of Election officials in each county then step aside and hand everything essential over to one of these three companies. After the November election night, election officials sign “results” when they have no idea if the results are true or false.
Incredibly, as stated above, all the counties sign a contract that the Election officials are NOT allowed to look at the source code of the privately-owned election software that tells the computers what to do on election night.
So who are the final Seven Election night gatekeepers?
— 6. ABC
— 7. CBS
— 8. NBC
— 9. CNN
— 10. FOX
— 11. AP wire
— 12. NEP (National Election Pool) formerly VNS (Voter News Service) from 1964 to 2004 – same people, same company, same function.
NEP (National Election Pool), believe or not, is owned jointly by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX and AP wire. (!!!!!!) Are Americans aware of this? Of course not! The five Big TV networks hide it from us!
On election night, all announcements of election “results” are relayed to the public by the 5 Big TV Networks and AP after they get the word from NEP, their jointly owned private company.
NEP collects the results in one way or another from the computerized machines in each county, including direct access to the mainframe election computers in some counties, and then passes it on to their owners. All big media websites on the national and gubernatorial election announcements are controlled by NEP. When NEP changes something, it changes on all Big Media websites simultaneously.
ELECTION NIGHT COMPETITION TO CALL “WINNERS” AND “LOSERS” IS A HOAX, AND THE BIG TV NETWORKS HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN IT IS A HOAX
IMPORTANT: ANY COMPETITION between the 5 Big TV networks on projecting winners and losers is a total fake, and the network election divisions know it’s a fake – a deliberate deception on the part of the 5 Big TV Networks. The Five Big TV Networks and AP get the exact same information, at the exact same time, from the exact same source, i.e., the company they jointly own, i.e., NEP (National Election Pool). The announced Exit Polls are conducted under the supervision of NEP, and then the results are passed on to the 5 Big TV Networks simultaneously. And yet the Big TV Networks have maintained this “we’re projecting the winner first” deception since the dawn of the computerized election age circa 1973. They take turns being “first” to call the “winner” and “losers” in various states.
The purpose of the highly questionable VNS/NEP/ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/FOX exit polls (debunked completely, in my opinion, in two chapters in “Votescam: The Stealing of America” by the late Collier Brothers) is to prepare the TV viewer for the unverifiable, easily-rigged computer “count” which is announced a few hours later, or even a few minutes later on election night.
We caught up with two exit polls over the years — as they are very, very hard to find. Why? Because there are very few of them. How does very, very few exit polls in a nation of 200,000 or so precincts provide any kind of a scientific basis to project winners and losers in close Congressional, Senatorial, and Presidential races? By the way, you have to find these exit polls hit and miss, because the networks will not publish in advance where they are going to be conducted. Like everything else they do, our would-be Rulers like to operate in secrecy, — total secrecy if possible.
One exit poll we caught up with was being conducted during the 1996 New Hampshire Presidential Primary on February 20, 1996 at a school in Manchester. The lady hired by VNS (Voter News Service, predecessor of today’s NEP) told us that they arrive about 9 AM, missing the morning rush from 7 AM to 9 AM. Then, only about one out of 15 people will talk to them. Why? Some people don’t want to talk about their vote. And many people are in a hurry. They have to be somewhere, pick up their mother for a doctor’s appointment, have to get to work, etc. etc. etc. AND, the VNS exit pollers call in their results to VNS in New York City at about 5 PM — meaning that they miss the evening rush hour from 5 PM to 7 PM. We filmed the VNS lady calling in her results on a pay phone in the school lobby while HUNDREDS of people were walking past her on their way to vote in the school gym. Missing the morning rush? Missing the evening rush? Only 1 out of 15 people willing to talk to them? Where is the scientific basis of these exit polls???
By the way, here is a picture of the Voter News Service box in which the NH exit poll lady put her filled-out exit polling forms, in case there is any doubt about who owned Voter News Service then. Click here for the picture of that box.— And the owners of the successor to VNS (Voter News Service), NEP (News Election Pool), are revealed on Wikipedia, among other places. Click here for the owners of National Election Pool.
More on the Unscientific Nature of Exit Polls
In the 1992 New Hampshire Primary, the exit polls showed Buchanan in a dead heat with President Bush the elder. The evening started with a 49% to 49% tie between Bush-Buchanan. Then Buchanan “dropped” every three hours by 3% while Bush stayed at 49% (virtually a statistical impossibility) throughout the night. By morning, the published “results” were 49% for Bush the Elder and 37% for Buchanan. This was clear manipulation by the crooks running the New Hampshire election system both in the computerized half of NH and in the hand-counted half (at that time, now it’s 80% computerized, 20% hand-counted) to save face for then President Bush the elder. When Warren Mitofsky of (then) Voter News Service was asked how come his exit polls were so far off, – he replied in Time magazine (paraphrase), “Because the Buchanan supporters were so much more willing to talk to us.” WELL THEN, Mr. Mitofsky — where is the scientific basis for your exit polls? (The same answer was given to Bernie Sanders supporters by a spokesman for NEP in 2016, to try to explain why the exit polls showed Sanders doing much better than Hillary, but then Hillary “winning” the Arizona Primary.)
The second exit poll we caught up with was in Boone County, Kentucky in 1996 on the day of the November Presidential election. Someone called my office about 3 PM in the afternoon and I rushed over to the location as fast as I could after finishing up what I had to do. With rush hour traffic, I got their about 5:20 PM with a 7:30 PM poll closing. True to what the VNS exit poll lady in New Hampshire had told us, the exit pollers had already left. Again, there were HUNDREDS of people in line waiting to vote. How does missing the rush hour periods of the election day — with only 1 out of 15 voters willing to talk to the exit pollers in the intervening hours of 9 AM to 5 PM — provide any kind of a scientific basis to project winners and losers, especially in close races?
Which brings us to one of the most absurd “projections” in the computerized election era: the 5 TV networks “projecting” Al Gore to “win” Florida at about 9:45 PM EST on November election night in year 2000, during the infamous Bush-Gore contest. It turned out that there were only 39 exit polls being conducted by the Voter News Service for their owners, the 5 Big TV Networks, throughout all of Florida that election night. 39 exit polls in a state of 7000 voting precincts! Now keep in mind that the election was allegedly so close it wasn’t decided (?) until 35 days after election day. And yet, on the basis of these 39 magic exit polls, all the 5 Big TV Networks projected Gore as the winner in Florida about 10 PM EST, which would have given the election to Gore. A little later, W. Bush came on TV in one of the Bush homes in Texas to state that (paraphrase), “My brother said that wasn’t right.” Now what W’s brother, Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, had to do with the election count, is still unclear. And at about 2 AM EST, all the Networks reversed themselves and said it was too close to call. Again, how could 39 exit polls out of 7000 voting precincts project a winner or loser in such a hairline close election? Some mind games were being played on the American people, but that’s another story for another article.
And the story of Senator Bob Smith’s re-election in New Hampshire in 1996, in a way, says it all. Senator Bob Smith talking about how all the TV networks called him the loser in 1996 in the New Hampshire Senate race — only to be proven wrong when the hand counted ballots came in. “They forgot that in New Hampshire we count the votes before we declare the winner,” Smith later told a C-Span interviewer with a smile.
That’s right. In 1996 there were 33 races for US Senate in 33 states. At that time, FOX news was only months old, so they were not yet involved as an owner of VNS (Voter News Service). But based on VNS exit polls, the other four networks, — ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN — “projected” the correct winner in 32 of the 33 states, i.e., in the states that were “counted” on the secret, easily-rigged computerized elections. In the 33rd state, in New Hampshire, in the one state where 1/2 of the votes (at that time in 1996) were counted by hand immediately as the polls closed, ALL FOUR NETWORKS GOT IT WRONG. All four networks projected the Democrat, Richard Swett, as the “winner.” But as the votes trickled in from the hand-counted sections of the state, the Pro-Constitution Senator Bob Smith pulled ahead and WON the race. Smith said is was like going to Hell and then told you were really going to Heaven.
What obvious lessons should one draw from this Senator Bob Smith-New Hampshire 1996 episode?
— a) It strongly indicates what is the reality: that all of the Big TV Networks were getting their numbers from one source (VNS), and always projected the “winner” in lockstep.
— b) That when the state was “counted” 100% by the secret, easily-rigged computer programs, then the computerized election process could always make the projections “come true.” BUT when one of the states was counted largely by immediate hand-counts at the neighborhood precincts, all the Big TV Networks could NOT project the winner, because the computers could not make the projection come true. My take: the computers used in Manchester and other large cities in New Hampshire in 1996 were programmed against the patriotic, constitution-minded Senator Smith. But the Votescam syndicate miscalculated, and did not steal enough votes from Senator Smith in the large cities using the election computers. And the hand-counted votes from the outlying areas of New Hampshire overtook the computerized warping of the vote in the large cities.
So let’s take a look at how these Election Night Gatekeepers worked on Super Tuesday in 2008 for John McCain and in 2012 for Mitt Romney in the Republican primary states:
a) ES &S, Diebold, Hart and Sequoia had long ago been hired by the brain-dead and/or traitorous county Boards of Election in all those states.(The primary states which were participants in Super Tuesday 2012 were: Georgia, Ohio, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.) These Boards of Elections had signed contracts which stated that they were not allowed to inspect in anyway the source code of the software which told the computers what to do on election night.
b) In those states, citizens, candidates, and local press people were illegally prevented from getting at the ballots in any effective way to conduct a count of anytime. In some states, like Ohio, the citizens are prevented from even seeing any of the ballots after they put their own into the ATM-like machine at their polling place. In other states, like South Dakota, the citizens are allowed to watch the votes fed into scanner machines from a few feet away, which is as good as being 4 planets away, because no one can see what’s going on inside the computers in the scanners.
c) So, after a few hours, ES &S Diebold, Hart and Sequoia, through the counties which have hired these mega-Election Vendors, tell NEP (National Election Pool, the company owned jointly by the 5 Big TV Networks and AP wire) the “results.”
d) Then NEP passes on the “results” to the 5 Big TV Networks and AP wire.
e) Then the 5 Big TV networks and AP wire announce these results to the public, and the big Radio stations and Big Newspaper Dailies parrot these results to the public.
f) The public in the United States of American take these published results on Blind Faith. This was the conclusion that computer expert Robert Strunk wrote in his expert testimony to the court of Judge Richard Niehaus in the 1985 case of Schutzman vs. the Hamilton County Board of Elections. And it is the conclusion of one of the leading experts on computerized elections in the United States, Dr. David Dill of Stanford University:
g) Backing up to before Super Tuesday 2008 and 2012, the five TV Networks created the narrative that McCain in 2008 and Romney in 2012 were going to “win” on Super Tuesday. In 2008 McCain had no visible support except for that the Big Media claimed existed. He could not get crowds. When he came to Cincinnati, Ohio the Republican Party had to empty out the Court House to manufacture a crowd. On Meet the Press, one of the “court jester” commentators, a lady, stated that McCain was at war with the party’s base (an absurd statement on its face, as the base supposedly does the voting). What the Meet the Press panel member lady, whose name escapes me at the moment, unintentionally hinted at was that the base does the VOTING, but the Establishment Old Guard behind both parties does the COUNTING in the secret, easily rigged computers. As Communist Dictator Joseph Stalin said, “Those who CAST the votes decide nothing. Those who COUNT the votes decide everything.”
In 2012, reporters repeatedly said that it was hard to find anyone whose first choice was Romney. But yet he won handily in the computer “counted” primary states. When crunch time comes in an election season, the 5 Big TV Networks publish phony polls to push the public in the desired direction. The phony polls are confirmed by the phony exit polls, both of which are made to “come true” by the secret, easily-rigged election computers.
h) Citizens in any state outside of the5 small counties in NH which count the votes in the open at closing time — will find that they are ARRESTED if they push too hard to count the ballots on election night in the computerized states, or in the computerized part of NH. All of these 3200 counties, and in 49 and 1/2 states, the Secretaries of State and the County Boards of Elections are operating illegally and constitutionally. They are totally abdicating their responsibility for the one thing they are commissioned to do: run honest, transparent elections where the published results reflect how the people voted, not how all the Old Guard Shadow government running the election computers wanted them to vote. They are violating their own state laws, the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and three still-standing, US Supreme Court decisions, namely, US v Mosley (1915), Reynolds v Sims (1964), and Westbury v. Sanders, 1964. (Seethe “Supreme Court Cases“)
i) You don’t have to be a computer expert, or understand computers at all, to grasp what is happening here. When someone — anyone — wants to count your votes in secret, you’ve got a problem. An the combination of the RNC, the DNC, ES &S, Hart, Dominion, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, AP wire, and NEP (National Election Pool) have succeeded in setting up a system where they DO “count” our votes in secret. And to add insult to injury: the 5 Big TV Networks and AP wire hide what is happening in US elections from the public.
j) Victoria Collier, daughter of the late “Votescam” author Jim Collier, has said, “You can’t vote the bums out, because you didn’t vote the bums in.” That’s the point. Since 1973, the Votescam Syndicate have quietly imposed a sinister election fraud system on the American people. Right now the people have no effective say in any national election if the Big TV Networks and their cohorts which to rig the election under a scenario which is “BELIEVABLE” to the vast majority of the American people.
THE CHILD’S CAR SEAT ANALOGY
The American people are like a little three year old in a car seat with a steering wheel. At election time they are laughing and turning the little plastic steering wheel as the parent drives the car. The parent looks over and says, “Good boy, Johnny. You’re such a big boy driving this car.” The American people are told by the 5 Big TV networks: “You’re the freest people ever.” In fact, the parent is the only one driving the car. In this analogy, the Parent are the wirepullers behind international banks like the FED (Federal Reserve Board), Goldman-Sachs, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the Bank of Settlements, (Follow the Money), through their 5 Big TV networks and their 3 Mega-Election Vendor Corporations. The child in the car seat is you and me, the American public.
This “Parent” has the motive to keep moving more and more money to the top 1%, and to grasp more power inching closer and closer to a world police-state government. This is not free enterprise. It is Vulture Capitalism, which ends up in the same place as Socialism and Communism, with all the unnecessary centralized planning and needless regimentation of mankind those two systems entail.
THE MOTIVE BEHIND THE ELECTION NIGHT GATEKEEPERS: MONEY, YES, BUT ULTIMATELY POWER
While it’s a brain twister at first, the top Socialists and Communists have always been the Billionaire Banksters. They want Communism for you and me, but Billionaire Ruler status for themselves. Communism and Socialism are the masks these Banksters wear, among other masks, when they are in the process of subduing a society. Commune-ism. The Banksters want 99% of the people on a large commune, living like animals, owning nothing, and being in needless debt from birth till death, while these Banksters run the world. That’s what Commune-ism means. This is the MOTIVE for computerized votefraud, and it is virtually impossible for most people to believe that there are sociopathic millionaires and billionaires who want to subdue mankind and rule the world. For a responsible introduction to this subject, see “The Secret of Oz” and the “Money Masters” on YouTube and on CD by Bill Still. And see “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin, and “The Secrets of the Federal Reserve” by Eustace Mullins.
Can’t Citizens Double Check the Published Computerized “Results” ??
Well, one might ask, can’t the citizens look at the ballots on election day and double check the computer count? Answer: NO! Any citizen or candidate or local press person who tries to get at the ballots in computerized counties will be illegally arrested by the local police, who have been tricked into protecting the Election Night Gatekeepers instead of the people and the integrity of the election. Can’t the citizens set up a process in advance with the local Board of Elections to count the actual ballots on election day in the computerized areas? Answer: NO! Unless you live in the 5 counties in New Hampshire which still count the votes constitutionally (by hand-count, BEFORE the ballots leave the public sight), then you cannot. Call your local county Board of Elections, or your Secretary of State, and try it.
Remember, once the ballots leave the public sight and public control to be processed through any kind of computer system, the CHAIN OF CUSTODY, the CHAIN OF EVIDENCE is broken. The Votescam Syndicate has the United States in a position where no one can prove who should be in the elective offices of Congressman, US Senator, or President. We can make a good guess because most elections aren’t that close for Congress and Senate, but we can’t know because the ballots were counted on secret, easily-rigged computer programs, with no checks and balances on November election day, or on the day of any primaries earlier in the year. (The caucuses can be checked for accuracy on the spot, if the citizens know how to demand an effective count on the spot. Even at the Caucuses the current Republican and Democratic power brokers try to pull sleights of hand on the usually unsuspecting citizens.)
Secret counts are the problem. Conducting secret counts are a criminal activity by the 3131 or so counties of the 3141 counties in the United States, and by ALL 50 Secretaries of States.
The only reason the county Boards of Elections exist is to hold transparent, honest elections so that what the people vote in the neighborhood polling places is what the Boards of Elections publish at the end of election night. By allowing 3 mega-Election-Vendors to conduct elections on secret computer programs, the local election officials and the Secretaries of State are sinning by stepping aside and TOTALLY abdicating their constitutionally mandated responsibilities. They are signing results when they don’t know if the results are true or false. Subversive. Treasonous. Aiding and abetting a foreign enemy, namely, the international bank corporations around the FED and Goldman-Sachs, which constitute an enemy without boundaries – an enemy of the United States of America, and almost all other nations.
Look at the quote from Dr. David Dill of Stanford University again. What is the proprietary nature these absurdly “top secret” computer programs – owned by ES &S, Hart, and Dominion – which process our elections? As Votescam author Jim Collier said, “What’s the proprietary information? In elections, it’s one for you, one or me, one for you, one for me. Where’s the need for secret software?” Answer: the PROPRIETARY PART is so that the Election Vendors hired by the Counties can fix the elections. Votefraud Investigator & IT experts John Brakey of Arizona and Richard Charnin of Florida have proven as far as can be done by math and algorithms, that such rigging took place in several regional “Secret software” elections.
THE SOLUTION FOR AN HONEST ELECTION COUNT
All computer and machines MUST GO. This admonition was given by the developer of the first PC (personal computer), Adam Osborne in “Running Wild” published in 1979. He said computers are great, but never for elections because no one can be sure what is happening in them. Can computers theoretically run accurate elections if everyone involved is honest? Of course. But when the future of the city, the county, the state, the nation, and the world is at stake — the motive to warp the election is too great.
Can paper ballots be counted by hand accurately if they are taken out of the public sight first if everyone involved is honest?
Of course. But when the future of the city, the county, the state, the nation, and the world is at stake — the motive to warp the election is too great.
Ballots must be counted right at closing time, by neighborhood citizens, BEFORE the ballots leave the sight of the polling place judges and the local neighborhood people.
This is the only way to ensure a fair count as far as humanly possible, and the Five Big TV Networks, and the Old Guard Establishment behind the RNC (Republican National Committee) and the DNC (Democratic National Committee) will fight this with all they’ve got. Once the vote is restored to the people, instead of those controlling the secret election computer programs, it’s the end of puppet Congressmen, Puppet Senators, and Puppet Presidents. And it’s the beginning of the end for the International Banksters’ long running attempt to destroy free enterprise as the Founding Fathers envisioned it. And it’s the beginning of an honest National Monetary Office that will issue money scientifically, at no interest to the nation, in order to serve the people (the only purpose for which money-issuing entities exist). As one perspicacious High School teacher told her high school class in Texas a generation ago: “The duty of the Treasury is to issue currency and credit in sufficient supply to meet the needs of commerce and industry.”
So, what if someone demands a recount when the published results seem questionable? Now they have to wait a long time, like 21 days, as well as specify what precincts they wish to recount. I’m sorry, but my cabal is in the process of stealing the city, the county, the state, the nation and the world — 21 days is plenty of time to switch the ballots to make the election night published computer results “come true.”
Also, there are high tech printing machines that can manufacture hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of ballots per hour, so that the original ballots can be replaced before the pre-selected precincts are brought out to the public for the hand recount.
The documentary “Hacking Democracy” featuring Bev Harris spotlights this “were-the-ballots-switched?” problem near the end of documentary in the segment dealing with the recount in Cleveland, Ohio after the 2004 Bush/Kerry Presidential election.
The answer is simple. Ban all computers and machines from the voting process. Have pre-selected neighborhood citizens, selected by an open and fair process, count the paper ballots at each neighborhood polling place in public, right after the polls close, BEFORE the ballots leave the sight of the election judges or the public. Everyone is allowed to watch the count at close range as long as they don’t interfere with the count. The results are posted on the wall of the polling place for three days after the election for all to come and check. And each candidate should double check the county Board of Elections to make sure that they added up the numbers from all the local precincts correctly. (See the “More Information” menu tab at ElectionNightGatekeepers.com for exact legislation to restore transparent, honest elections.
While the Old Guard Establishment will scream that restoring transparent, honest elections by hand count is impossible, it certainly is easily possible. It would take about 12 citizens on average at each polling place nationwide to do the counting. These counters used to be called scrutineers. And each of these scrutineers should be paid $100 each for about four hours work on election night. That would cost about $480 million per year for the primary, and $480 million per year for the general election. We spent $4 billion dollars per month in the first twelve months we were in Iraq in 2003-2004. That’s $48 billion dollars. That same $48 billion dollars would allow us to hand-count all elections for the primary and general election in November — for about 60 years. The Constitution requires elected officials to defend the United States against enemies, both foreign and domestic.
The longer we have computerized elections — the more domestic enemies we have occupying offices.
TO REPEAT: While computers are great for many things (I’m using one now!), they are horrible and unacceptable for elections, because no one can see what’s happening inside a computer. The man who (I’m told) invented some version of the first home computer, Adam Osborne, wrote a book circa 1979 entitled, “Running Wild”. In that book, Osborne stated computers should never be used to count elections.
So, whatever it takes, whatever the costs, we must restore transparent, honest hand-counted elections to every polling place in the United States of America. The hand-count must be conducted in each neighborhood polling place right as the polling place closes and BEFORE the ballots leave the public sight.
Millions of Americans have fought and bled, and so many have died, to try and ensure our right to determine our nation’s destiny at the ballot box. We dare not continue to let a group of power-hungry sociopaths spit on their sacrifice.
