As we near the 2016 elections, we continue to hear politicians and bureaucrats across these Fifty States insist that the popular vote is not rigged, and indeed, cannot be rigged. That our vote is sacred and protected. That it is not possible to hack or corrupt. And of course, that “isolated incidents” are not significant.
Yet, at the same time, it is reported that the FedGov Department of Homeland Security is moving to declare the election process “critical infrastructure” and therefore under their jurisdiction to “protect” and – as with so much else – control. So (no surprise, folks!) we have government speaking with forked tongue.
9News in Denver (as reposted by iPatriot) has investigated and found that a serious voting scandal has existed in Colorado for much of the last decade. Among many others, a woman who died in 2009 was able to cast her vote from the grave in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
This adds to my personal burden of work: I need to get absentee ballots so that my father and aunt can vote this year. I am certain I know whom they would vote for on most of the races, and is it not my obligation to continue to support their after-life and estates? (/sarc)
According to “The Christian Times Newspaper” (a webzine), a worker found twelve boxes of ballots already marked for Clinton-Kaine and other Democratic candidates, amounting to tens of thousands of fraudulent votes in a key swing state – and in Columbus, a typically Democratic urban area.
Other publications, including Global Research and Snopes.com claim the story is a fake, and that “The Christian Times” is a Trojan horse site given to wild flights of imagination. Of course, a Snopes article is hardly proof of the truth. The mainstream media (KOMO TV) and government agencies (the Franklin County Board of Elections) have condemned the story as fraudulent.
Again, a grain of salt is indicated. While it now seems fairly certain that this news story WAS a fraud (my own conclusion after just seeing the article on-line, not just others’ view.), it points out the potential. The procedures designed to prevent vote fraud by the Board do not seem to be adequate to prevent a true and relatively simple method of injecting fake ballots into the vote-counting process, and seem to include no provisions for possible hacking of their “direct recording electronic” voting system (with paper trail).
So it does not provide (at least to me) reasonable confidence that some sort of massive and coordinated voting fraud is not possible. Perhaps not on a nationwide basis, or even on a statewide basis. But certainly locally possible: and there are many localities which are critical, key points where a few votes one way or another can swing entire districts and states, and therefore the nation.
And it has happened before.
A professor at the State University of New York (SUNY) has developed a model that “predicted” every federal presidential election from 1912 on – except for one: the 1960 election of Jack Kennedy over Dick Nixon.
The model predicts Trump over Clinton, Johnson, and Stein with 97% probability. Scary, huh? Certainly to many people.
Apparently, the model shows that Illinois should have voted for Nixon, NOT Kennedy. Recall that Illinois was the deciding state in 1960, and for decades it has been claimed that Richard Daley, Mayor of Chicago, had ensured that the state went to Kennedy. Not by campaigning but by fraud. It does make you wonder.
No doubt there are other examples, but this is enough.
And … enough is enough.
Mama’s Note: One of these days… people will realize that the entire premise of electoral politics is a world class fraud that has been perpetrated for hundreds of years. The fraud going on amid the larger fraud is only to be expected. Don’t vote. It only encourages the fraud and the fraudsters.
