Stolen elections? Voter fraud is nothing new

Mainstream media bias

The mainstream media went bonkers when during the third presidential candidate debate, Donald Trump alluded to the possibility of voter fraud. Naturally, Hillary Clinton was not asked to respond to the question.

Mainstream media bias is so pervasive this election cycle that it can be said that Clinton's campaign is the mainstream media. The poor souls who get their daily dose of mayhem and puff pieces solely from television and their local paper can't be blamed for their self-inflicted ignorance. A case in point is the AP article Trump, Clinton clash in final presidential debate, Fox 32 News Chicago, October 19, 2016. In the article Dishonest media 101: ‘Your bias is showing’, Daily Inter Lake, October 22, 2016, managing editor Frank Mele exposes the obvious bias in the article. It's worth a read.

Mainstream media bias constitutes overarching election fraud because it filters and censors crucial information that voters require in order to make an informed decision. Former Congressman Tom Tancredo writes:

One of the most insidious and morally repugnant is being used in 2016 by the Democratic party’s propaganda arm, the American mass media: vote suppression. The media are telling millions of Americans over and over, day in and day out, they need not bother to vote because Hillary Clinton has already won the election.

That is what Donald Trump means by a “rigged election.”...

While the mainstream media continuously lambastes Trump, they deliberately ignore the multitude of his magnanimous good deeds. Blatant bias indeed.

Tancredo also points out the existence of more tangible vote tampering and fraud:

...The guarantee of a secret ballot is not found in the original US Constitution; it developed a century later as one answer to the practice of vote-buying.

The Pew Center just last week published a report claiming there are 1.8 million dead people on the voter rolls, and another credible report puts the total of dead people and ineligible voters at more than 4 million. The question that arises from such startling information is a simple one. If our super-smart election officials have allowed such problems to accumulate for decades without fixing them– while all the time opposing a photo ID requirement for voting —  why should citizens have confidence they can weed out all the bogus votes from the honest ones on election day?...

Meanwhile, back in Chicago, some of the old tricks are still in fashion, like voting machines that count ballots a particular way. In 2014, some voters at the Schaumburg Public Library saw touch-screen voting machines that counted votes as Democrat even if you voted for a Republican candidate. The local election official attributed the problem to a “calibration error.” The funny thing is, there were no machines found that miscount votes the other direction.

Across the nation, literally tens of millions of ballots are already in the mail and will be returned by mail, with the only security tool being signature verification. That verification is by an election judge who is given an average of three seconds to compare the signature accompanying the ballot to the one in an electronic record.

In Billings, Montana, police are investigating reports of ballots being stolen from apartment mail boxes. In thousands of apartment buildings and nursing homes, millions of mailed ballots await pick-up by their owners– or by a  ballot harvester who will gladly vote the ballot or offer assistance in filling out the ballot and then delivering it to a polling place.

Gross anomalies concerning Romney ballots in Pennsylvania in the 2012 election have been virtually ignored by the media. A mathematician recently proved the undeniable existence of fraud: "with nearly 20,000 voters, the odds of Romney being completely shut out are beyond any reasonable calculation."


Let me count the ways

Prof. John Banzhaf has concluded that Yes, the Election Can Be Rigged, and here are some of the ways:

  • According to NBC news and other media sources, the CIA is currently preparing to launch an unprecedented cyber war against Russia as retaliation for what has now been clearly identified as attempted Russian interference in the forthcoming U.S. presidential election.
  • Also, Homeland Security Secretary [Jeh] Johnson is considering designating election systems around the country as a “critical infrastructure” in need of federal assistance and protection, and has already established an Election Infrastructure Cybersecurity Working Group, as well as launching a Voting Infrastructure Cybersecurity Action Campaign.
  • Meanwhile, an anonymous Homeland Security Department official reportedly said that the voter systems of more than 20 states – including the key state of Florida – have been targeted by hackers just in recent months.
  • The FBI’s reported that the data bases of election boards in at least two states were successfully hacked, apparently by foreign governments, and in at least one case the hackers were able to insert malicious software into the system.  Moreover, their report showed that both infiltrations were done using common off-the-shelf software programs readily available to anyone who wants them from the Internet. In other words, hacking election machines can be done not only by hostile governments and master computer experts, but also by common garden-variety hackers.
  • Just weeks after the release of a report showing how easy it would be for Russians or even high school nerds to hack a presidential election, two other professors have just proven it.  University of Michigan Professor Alex Halderman was able to infiltrate a voting system from 500 miles away, and, in another demonstration, manipulate voting results with only a screwdriver and some memory chips.  Princeton professor Andrew Appel was able to hack an election machine in only 7 minutes.
  • According to an official from the Department of Homeland Security, 25 states have reached out for federal aid related to election security, and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said he hopes more will seek assistance.
  • CNN reluctantly reports that “we’ve officially entered the era of the hackable [presidential] election.”
  • Mother Jones reports that “the concern that somebody might try to hack voting machines no longer seems outlandish.”
  • Politico says a computer expert remarked that if some of the more susceptible voting machines hadn’t yet been hacked, “it was only because no one tried.”
  • Money magazine says we’ve officially entered the era of the hackable election.
  • Wired claims that the move toward electric voting machines turned out to be a “technological train wreck.”
  • ABC News featured a piece entitled “Yes, It’s Possible to Hack the Election.”
  • Tarrant County, Texas, is now investigating voter fraud through the use of mail-in ballots...

In the article Rigged Elections are as American as Apple Pie, Jeff Crouere reports that:

Trump is not advocating military action or civil unrest, but he wants to insure a fair result. We know that there are many irregularities in our voting system. According to a 2012 report by the Pew Research Center, “Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters.  Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state... Of course, this situation has only gotten worse since 2012 and any efforts to update the voter rolls are always opposed by Democrats.

In the article Rigged Elections Are An American Tradition, Paul Craig Roberts notes that:

... Stolen elections are the American tradition. Elections are stolen at every level—state, local, and federal. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley’s theft of the Chicago and, thereby, Illinois vote for John F. Kennedy is legendary. The Republican US Supreme Court’s theft of the 2000 presidential election from Al Gore by preventing the Florida vote recount is another legendary example. The discrepancies between exit polls and the vote count of the secretly programmed electronic voting machines that have no paper trails are also legendary.

So what’s the big deal about Trump’s suspicion of election rigging? The black civil rights movement has fought vote rigging for decades...

A recent Wilikeaks revelation was reported by John Hinderaker:

In his email, Podesta recounts what these two Coloradans told him about their experience with the Colorado caucuses in 2008:

“They are reliving the 08 caucuses where they believe the Obama forces flooded the caucuses with ineligible voters.”

Voter fraud: when Republicans complain about it, the Democrats’ party line is that it practically never happens. But when they are talking among themselves, they acknowledge that the Obama campaign “flooded the caucuses with ineligible voters.”...


Technological trickery

The evidence continues to mount that elections can be rigged via technological trickery. Jon Rappoport writes in High Alert: the election can still be rigged that votes can be counted as fractions instead of as whole numbers:

Bev Harris, at blackboxvoting.org, is exploring a specific “cheat sheet” that has vast implications for the Trump vs. Hillary contest.

It’s a vote-counting system called GEMS.

I urge you to dive into her multi-part series, Fraction Magic (Part-1 here). Here are key Harris quotes. They’re all shockers:

“Our testing [of GEMS] shows that one vote can be counted 25 times, another only one one-thousandth of a time, effectively converting some votes to zero.”

“This report summarizes the results of our review of the GEMS election management system, which counts approximately 25 percent of all votes in the United States...

It was recently discovered that radical globalist and leftist billionare George Soros has provided Smartmatic voting machines to numerous states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington, D.C., Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Smartmatic machines communicate bidirectionally and are suspected of being succeptible to fraud. They were used in the August 2004 Venezuelan referendum. The Venezuelan opposition to President Hugo Chavez is convinced that the Smartmatic machines robbed them of victory.

The National Association of Secretaries of State has warned that Smartmatic is not on the list of companies that provide federally-certified election systems to states.

Importing Democratic voters

Then there is the more ominous case of demographic voter rigging. No wonder the Democrats want open borders! Steve Sailer writes:

In 1997, Peter Brimelow and Ed Rubenstein published an article in National Review, “Electing a New People,” laying out a numerical model of how the GOP was destroying itself by tolerating high immigration. They were among the first to point out what now seem like obvious truths—such as, that the GOP is in effect the white party, so the smaller the white percentage of the electorate in the 21st century, the worse the GOP does.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton recently referenced a study from the Center for Immigration Studies that revealed that “there could be as many as 43 million non-citizens in the United States right now.” He added, “And it’s not just illegal aliens. We’re talking about aliens who are here legally, who are also voting illegally, potentially”.

J. Christian Adams of the Election Law Center and the Public Interest Legal Foundation and author of the book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department explains that the Biggest Threat to 2016 Election Is Illegal Alien Voting:

... Adams warned that “the Left has created structural edifices to influence the atmosphere of the election.”

“In other words, they just don’t rely on, like, some joker in Philadelphia to cast a phony ballot. They change the rules. The rules of the game are constantly being changed – not in October, but in January, in the December before the election,” he explained.

“For example, take citizen voting. There is something called a citizen checkbox. That’s the only way we have to stop foreigners from getting on the voter rolls. When you register to vote, you simply check a box: ‘Yes, I’m a United States citizen.’ There’s no verification in most states. You just get on the rolls because of the federal law, Motor Voter, passed in 1993.This was part of a long-term structural rigging of the election. It’s not voting machines, and it’s not, you know, busses. It’s something far more dangerous,” Adams said...

“I’ve been litigating cases around the country. I just sued two Virginia counties this week for concealing alien voting records, the list of foreigners who are on the voter rolls. In Virginia alone, Alex, our litigation found a thousand aliens in just eight counties. These are the only eight counties that complied with our document requests. And they were voting! So if you take a thousand aliens who were accidentally caught in eight Virginia counties, and there’s 135 Virginia counties, that tells you that the number of aliens on the voter rolls in just this swing state is in the five figures.”

“The same is true in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Arizona,” he continued. “More so in Texas, Pennsylvania. These are places where alien voting will make a difference. And it made a difference in California. California became the deepest shade of blue, in part, because of problems with the voter rolls, with illegal alien voting.”...
 

Is rigging real?

Hans Von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow and manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative with the Heritage Foundation, has observed that enough voter fraud exists to make a difference in a close election (as is the case with the 2016 election). The Initiative has compiled 430 cases of voter fraud that resulted in a judge ordering a new election, or resulted in a conviction.

In the substantial four part series Are Our National Elections Rigged? Ed Wood writes:

Well of course they are. That's a foregone conclusion; not even a fit subject for intelligent debate any more. Oh, it's a little more sophisticated now than in the days of the old Tennessee custom of a Mason jar of moonshine, or the Chicago precinct captain's distribution of "walking around money." But the practice is alive and well, and more pervasive than ever. The evidence is everywhere if we choose to look.

Why do you think there is such a push to eliminate citizenship ID as a requirement to vote? Why do you think there is such a push to grant voting rights to illegal aliens? Why do you think voting machines that leave a paper trail have been eliminated in favor of electronic tabulation, far away from where the votes are actually cast? Why do you think that in the 2012 Presidential Election there were many reports of voter fraud, or intimidation, but no reports of conviction? Remember the 158.85% voter turnout in St. Lucie County Florida, the highest voter turnout in the Country? Of course it contributed heavily to the defeat of Republican Congressional incumbent, Colonel Alan West. And yes Colonel West did ask for a recount, but it was not granted.

With historical hanging chads, massive mainstream media bias, technological trickery, imported Democratic demographics, and zealous zombie voters, it seems that not only has voting fraud occurred, but we should expect a lot more of it. It should be of utmost concern to every political candidate and to every American.

Smartmatic, used in Latin America, Europe, and Asia, was endorsed by former president Jimmy Carter and current president Barack Obama.  Smartmatic is a privately held multi-national company with offices in Barbados, U.S., Mexico, Venezuela, Spain, Philippines, and Taiwan. The Chairman of Smartmatic is currently Lord Mark Malloch-Brown.

The Virginia voter alleges that “Hillary is tied to the one company that has the power to sway this entire election.” She also stated the fact that the chairman of Smartmatic is a global board member of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations...

It’s Naive To Think Illegal Aliens Aren’t Voting – By The Millions, by Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch, Daily Caller, January 30, 2016:

...There are a total of 43 million noncitizens currently living within US borders. Of these, approximately 12 million are illegal aliens*. Not only are there well-documented reasons to believe that many of them may be violating election integrity, the fact is, many on the left are more than happy to see them do so. A Rasmussen Reports poll last year found that 53 percent of the Democratic Party supports allowing illegal aliens to vote...

As I point out in my book, Clean House, in 2014, a disturbing study by political scientists at Old Dominion found that 6.4 percent of foreign nationals residing in the United States voted in the 2008 presidential election. If the key Old Dominion study results on the 2008 election were applied to 2016 — 1.41 million aliens may have voted illegally, with probably 1.13 million voting for Democrats.

Add to that the 2012 Pew Research Center study noting that “approximately 2.75 million people have active registrations in more than one state.” On top of that, the study revealed, more than “1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as active voters.” Combine those figures with the number of aliens the Old Dominion study cites, and the Trump allegations may not be so far out of line...
