Fully Exposed–The Dominion Plot to Defraud the American Voters and President Trump

Voter Fraud

I will put this simply–Donald Trump is the duly elected President of the United States. Not Joe Biden. Thanks to a brave judge in Michigan, we now have indisputable, concrete evidence that the votes tabulated in any county or jurisdiction in the United States using electronic voting machines supplied by Dominion Voting Systems Corporation were tainted and the audit trail required to prove the integrity of those machines has been erased.

You can (and you should) read the damning results of the forensic investigation of the Dominion Voting System machines used in Antrim County, Michigan. Here are the key facts from this investigation:

  • The machine tabulated results reported on November 3, 2020 show there were 12,423 votes for President–with Joe Biden receiving 7,769 and Donald Trump garnering 4,509. The machine count for 3 November shows that only 56% of the registered voters cast a ballot for President. But a subsequent tabulation three weeks later (21 November) put Trump on top with 9,748 votes to Biden’s 5,960. The total votes for President increased by 3,526 and the turnout approached 73%.
  • A staggering number of the ballots cast in Antrim required ADJUDICATION. The Dominion system classifies ballots into two categories, 1) normal ballots and 2) adjudicated ballots. Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch.
  • In Central Lake Township, for example, 81.96% of the 1,491 total ballots cast were adjudicated, which means that the decision about who received the vote was made by election personnel.
  • All the ADJUDICATION logs for the November 2020 election cycle are missing while the files for previous years still exist. The lack of current records prevents any form of audit accountability.
  • All server security logs prior to 11:03 pm on November 4, 2020 are missing. This means that all security logs for the day after the election, on election day, and prior to election day are gone. These logs contain domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections to file servers between file accesses, internet connections, times, and data transfers.
  • An unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results on November 21, 2020.

  • The Election Event Designer Log shows that Dominion Image Cast Precinct Cards were programmed with new ballot programming on 10/23/2020 and then again after the election on 11/05/2020. Specifically, the Central Lake Township tabulator tape totals were significantly altered by utilizing two different program versions (10/23/2020 and 11/05/2020), both of which were software changes during an election–a clear violation of election law.
  • Antrim County used two software packages with the Dominion machines–one counted actual votes (i.e. tabulated) and the other CALCULATED ballot totals.
  • The tabulator tape totals prove there were large numbers of votes switched from the November 3, 2020 tape to the November 6, 2020 tape. This was solely based on using different software versions of the operating program to calculate votes.
  • A high “error rate” in the election software (in this case 68.05%) means an algorithm was used that weighted one candidate greater than another (for instance, weight a specific candidate at a 2/3 to approximately 1/3 ratio). The Antrim logs show that the RCV or Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm was enabled (see image below from the Dominion manual), which allows the user to apply a weighted numerical value to candidates and change the overall result.
  • The Dominion voting machines used in Antrim County are used in 48 other Michigan counties, which calls into question the entire results of the Presidential election.

This is not a conspiracy theory. The report presents and explains verifiable facts. The Dominion voting systems were used to manipulate the results reported for the Presidential election and other issues on the ballot in 2020 in Antrim County, Michigan. The hardware and software used in Antrim are not unique to that location. The Dominion system used in Michigan is used across the United States.

The nature of the fraud is illustrated in the results reported in the Ellsworth School Board election in Antrim County. On November 3, 2020, the Dominion machines reported 663 votes (this was the calculated result). Two days later the actual votes were tabulated–only 3 people voted for two different candidates for a total of six votes. The disappearance of 657 votes is not “human error.” That is machine manipulation. It happened to the school board and it happened to Donald Trump.

It is now imperative that Republican legislators and voters in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada demand a full forensic audit of the Dominion systems. This is widespread fraud and it is up to the people to demand that there be an accounting.

    Larry,
    Trying to get my head around how, exactly, this worked. I get the part about weighting votes. That’s easy.
    But the adjudicated votes – Is it that the machine labels a significant portion of votes as “send to be adjudicated” and then some election decides whether were for and that person then decides they are for Biden (even if they really not)? If so that requires some election administrator has to be in on the crime. Should be easy enough to identify that person, charge him/her with a serious felony and get them to roll on the other conspirators. Why have the adducted vote method operational when you’ve got the weighting operational well. Seems you wouldn’t want a potential witness.
    I’d like to see independent corroboration of the findings. I’m hearing that the individual who performed the analysis is a little bit on the sketchy side, but of course they would say that. A second opinion would be helpful because this is so damn serious.

  3. Horace says:

    “…widespread fraud … demand[s] that there be an accounting.”
    This isn’t mere pedestrian vote fraud for which our laws are designed: political machines scheming for the spoils of public coffers. If claims that foreign actors were involved can be verified then it is an act of war against the American people.
    It doesn’t matter if the foreigners were representatives of sovereign states. Neither was Al Qaeda. It matters that they attacked us. Those with American citizenship papers who collaborated with them must be punished in such a way to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. I am in favor of stripping citizenship, confiscating property, and expulsion.
    Cicero noted 2000 years ago that during times of war, the law is silent. These enemies have been waging war against us while not merely ignoring our laws, but flouting them and rubbing it in our faces. Their threat must be removed.
    Wall Street corporate raiders and hedge fund vermin and Hollywood rapists, marxists, and pedophiles do not get to define what it means to be American. Traditionally, we are bound together by Christianity and Constitutionalism. Those who have hostility to either need to go somewhere else.

    Fred,
    re this Jack Posobiec. Had to google the name to get beyond twitteritis. His full name is John Michael Posobiec III.
    Here’s what English language wikipedia says about him, not exactly friendly but probably factually rather accurate:
    John Michael Posobiec III (/pəˈsoʊbɪk/ pə-SOH-bik; born December 14, 1985)[1] is an American alt-right[2][3][4] political activist and conspiracy theorist[5] who is considered an Internet troll.[6][7][8][9] Posobiec is best known for his pro-Donald Trump comments on Twitter, as well as using white-supremacist and anti-semitic symbols and talking points, including the white genocide conspiracy theory.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Posobiec
    In brief – I wouldn’t even buy rusty metal trash from that guy.
    That’s about the sort of type (though with less hair) I have once met who (seriously) told me he likes Adolf Hitler’s splendid blonde hair and blue eyes. Indeed! Not to mention the splendid blonde full beard. I didn’t say that loud because I wanted to keep my nose unbroken.
    Ah, where love impacts hard no more grass grows.

  6. Deap says:

    What happened to the claim Smartronic/Dominion computers were linked in Germany to “Indivisible” (aka ACORN), as well as other foreign actors?
    Does the definition of “widespread election fraud” cover the widespread elements of fraud found in this one single county. Or do the PTB require “widespread election fraud” to be established nationwide in every jurisdiction or else it is not worth their time to investigate. Lots of wiggle room to define the outcomes.
    The coordinated media overkill which demanded proof of ‘widespread” election fraud was always disturbing. I propose this one county meets the burden of “widespread” election fraud” – when every single vote in the entire county now appears fatally tainted.
    Our local county election officer claimed the signature verification software was less than 50% accurate in our 100% mail in election, so that software flaw also created the need also for many segregated and later “adjudicated” ballots.
    Never thought to ask: who independently oversaw that process. Does this signature verification process happen outside of the required local election observers who monitor only the vote count? Looks like our local grand jury needs to do an audit of our election procedures to ensure we are not also participating in “widespread election fraud”.
    Software management of mail-in balloting, on the massive 2020 scale, has been a very slippery slope. And it appears we ended up with something very slimy.

  7. Larry C Johnson says:

    Eric,
    Exactly. Once the ballots are “adjudicated” that means someone else decides who gets the vote.

  8. Larry C Johnson says:

    Confused,
    Your comment re Jack Posobiec is downright ignorant. The Wiki description is, at best, defamatory. Labeling someone “alt-right” and racist and anti-semitic is bullshit. Show me an actual piece of writing or video commentary to support such scurrilous claims. You won’t find it. Shame on you.

  9. Fred says:

    The Detroit Free Press article that the OAN reporter linked too wasn’t written by him. That’s the original source of the news. Perhaps you should have read that before slandering the OAN guy via Wikipedia for reminding us that Jocelyn Benson’s husband is corrupt.

  10. Deap says:

    WIKI also described Sidney Powell with exactly the same terms used to describe Posobiec. Someone was busy gas-lighting WIKI too while we were looking elsewhere. …alt right, conspiracy theorist, internet troll, pro-Trump …etc
    Cut and paste slurs for anything or anybody supporting Trump. Scary, so no WIKI, I did not send you the requested $3.00 to keep your cesspool site going. Hope someone runs a few Trump supporter names through the WIKI gas-lighting machine and runs a full article on this “people’s encyclopedia” reckless defamation abuse.

  11. Bobo says:

    After reading through the full report on the Antrim County results by the ASOG group I see an immediate need that it be substantiated by an independent group jointly selected by the Legislature of Michigan as the results highlighted in this report are earth shattering to the American People as we have been duped. In addition selected independent groups should be put in place by every State in the USA to determine if there election counts have similar results.
    Until the above independent groups report no election should take place if the results will be determined by an electronic means. Only hand counts with proper oversight should be authorized.
    For the sake of this country and its people hand counts of all legal votes in the 2020 Presidential election should commence within a reasonable period.
    As of this writing our State election officials, government officials, courts and the Supreme Court have hesitated in getting involved to the detriment of our citizens. A manual recount is the only answer to the 2020 election that will calm the citizenry, no matter the result. Honesty is integral to our foundation.

  12. Exiled off mainstreet says:

    Anything the least bit controversial on wikipedia is hopelessly biassed in an establishment direction. As far as the fraud goes, the county is proof positive that there was significant fraud. A number of states casting suspiciously increased votes compared to 2016, such as Minnesota and Colorado which already had a lot of votes cast in 2016 for the state populations, is indicative of the modern form of ballot stuffing, “vote harvesting”. I am sure Biden got 99.44% of the senility vote, since his operatives forged the signatures and filled out the ballots of those they knew were incompetents living in rest homes. There has been plenty of evidence for this.
    Meanwhile, the election night simultaneous halts in counting followed by Stalin-like votes for Biden in all of the contested states was itself strongly probative. It was a case of the chickens of CIA methods of rumbling the results of foreign elections coming home to roost.
    The Antrim County case spotlights another method, “adjudicating” ballots, and the results were changed only because the fraud was so glaring and the fascist Whitmer regime figured they had enough votes elsewhere to sustain the fraud.
    Also probative is the fact that courts resorted to procedural scams to avoid even looking at the evidence, citing “lack of standing” because the plaintiffs could not show they were “damaged” by the fraud. The most absurd argument made was “laches” delay, because the legal changes could have been challenged before the election. Of course, then the court would say the issue is moot because nobody was damaged by the legal change.
    For anybody saying sure there is evidence of fraud, but the democrats still had enough votes to win anyway, there is the legal concept of “unclean hands”. Once any fraud is proven, the fraudster is considered to have “unclean hands”, that is, his actions are considered tainted, and the fraudster can’t be allowed to profit from his own wrong, that is, gain any advantage of any sort once proof exists that the fraudster engaged in fraud.

    Buzzing around the internet: Solar Winds just raided by Texas Rangers in Austin TX – which powers Dominion voting systems. Dominion took the Solar Wind link down from their website. 404 not found.
    What’s up with that?
    Maybe so many Calif high tech groups recently moved to Austin it is now causing a local power outage? Solar Wind principals recently sold large shares of stock.

  14. akaPatience says:

    I’ve written before that I thought destroying evidence likely connoted consciousness of guilt. We know SO FAR that MI, GA and PA (and perhaps others — I’m not 100% up to speed) have destroyed evidence — envelopes, ballots, logs, drives, etc.
    I still suspect that Obama was a likely ringleader of what is turning out to seem like a widespread, concerted effort to commit election fraud. Bumbling Biden was kept out of view because the fix was in anyway. Who has to campaign if election machines and workers are pre-set to commit fraud? Obama and his fawning acolytes in the MSM and Big Tech are thick as thieves. Adding to them the greediest among a bi-partisan group of pols, businesses and investors who were chomping at the bit to revert to the practice of profiting from less constrained dealings with China created a well-funded and unscrupulous alliance. Why would an over-extended striver care if China were more free to destroy our working class, steal our ideas, spy on us and brainwash our citizens into acquiescence of communism via schools and mass media? What does it matter to a grasping, venal person if personal freedoms erode because of the growing influence of Chinese authoritarianism?

  15. Deap says:

    EU now prohibits “electronic voting” in their federal elections. What did they know and when did they know it? And why didn’t we know it too.
    Or rather, when did Democrats learn this would make for their perfect steal if they stayed one step ahead and waved shiny object elsewhere for distraction.
    The entire conversion from proposal to contracting for Dominion election system in every state now using them needs a “special counsel”.
    This is far worse than Jim Crow laws in the few Dixiecrat Southern state holdouts that required the special and long standing Voting Rights Act legislation and federal oversight to avoid future election abuses.

  16. Deap says:

    Every illegal vote illegally cancels out a legal vote; or illegally amplifies a legal vote. Neither outcome belongs in our election system.

  17. Deap says:

    Right on cue, patience. There was a very Bumbling Biden today – being taken out of Shady Acres Senior Rest Home by his wife Dr Jill for his Electoral College victory lap.
    While asking everyone to “come together” and hate on Trump:

    Advice to Mr Biden: Don’t let Kamala Harris be your food taster.

  18. Bill H says:

    All of this sounds very authoritative and certainly very damning. It is entirely useless unless presented in a court of law, which will never happen. All claims regarding falsification of elections are rejected out of hand by courts as “not having standing” to file. According to courts at all levels, no one can establish having been harmed by election fraud.

    This sounds like voter fraud in favour of Trump.
    Where is John Michael Posobiec III mentioned?

  20. English Outsider says:

    Larry – Deap’s link also looked pretty damning –
    https://redstate.com/stu-in-sd/2020/12/14/antrim-county-mi-reality-dominion-systems-n294508?utm_source=piano&utm_medium=onsite&utm_campaign=719
    This is a very strange business. It reminds me of the time in 2014 when I was grubbing around the internet solo (didn’t know of SST then) and found that what was being reported in the media on the Ukraine bore little relation to what was happening on the ground.
    And I found myself living in two worlds. All around me were following the accepted narrative. But the reality was different. If you mentioned that the accepted narrative was false there was simply polite disbelief – “he’s lost it and is going in for conspiracy theories” sort of thing.
    I still remember mentioning to a German friend that I wasn’t happy about how the Ukraine was being reported, particularly with reference to the activities of the Right Sector. More polite disbelief, but the friend went off and looked around on the internet for himself. A few days later he came back and said that to his surprise he’d found out the situation there was as I had said.
    So it is here. Two worlds. The accepted narrative is that Trump’s a bad loser and is simply muddying the water to leave as much confusion behind him as he can. Of course there were errors, always are, but Biden won fair and square and only conspiracy theorists – sad souls but you always get them – claim otherwise.
    And here I sit looking at stuff that really does need to go before a Court and get thrashed out thoroughly. No question. But by the looks of it it’s going to remain “fake news” and that’s that.
    Would I have felt the same had Trump won but also in such dubious circumstances? Yes, I think I would. For the trouble is when things are being swept under the carpet that you never know exactly what’s being swept. And that creates doubt on the one thing where doubt is dangerous. Because when it comes down to it the vote is all the average citizen has if he is not to be entirely powerless. Take confidence away in that and confidence in all is removed.

  21. Horace says:

    “… stuff that really does need to go before a Court and get thrashed out thoroughly.”
    If there were nothing there, globohobo would be delighted to get it all before a court so they could demolish it and ridicule its proponents. You mock an opponent when he is either crazy or mistaken, but you censor him when he is right and you fear normie noticing.

I’ve a strong feeling the full exposure of this dirty business is scheduled for our consumption in the near future. Wouldn’t it be interesting if that seized German server was the one where the votes to be “adjudicated” went. Sounds to me like “adjudicated vote” is a great candidate for Walrus’ GAGA dictionary too.

    WSJ this morning is chilling. Not a single mention of the Michigan forensic findings about the corrupted Dominion voting systems. Officially in the WSJ world, this Antrim County probe never happened. Nor is one still ongoing in Arizona.
    Just the opposite -on multiple occasions in both “news” and opinion pieces today the WSJ dug in completely that there was no election fraud, Barr confirmed there was no election fraud, and Trump was highly destructive to our Nation in principle for even presenting his post-election legal challenges.
    When you watch the WSJ become as luridly biased by default, as the NYT is by active commission, one does become a believer there is some other deeper agenda going on that even exceeds our partisan government agenda and my own personal deep state misgivings. WSJ is the global “business” paper after all. “What’s good for General Motors, is good for America.”
    At this point all I can do is sit back and plead sotto voce – just don’t mess with my retirement investments, and have at it. The next few years are now out of my meaningless little hands. And yes, it will still be the “economy”, stupid.

  25. Deap says:

    Could not have been reported better. Re – Biden’s “victory speech” yesterday.
    ……….”If this is his opening statement to the American public, all it shows is that we are in for some tough times, a president who knows we don’t believe a thing he says, and therefore to rely on the word of others for his legitimacy as proof he belongs in the White House.
    We’re also in for a bath of lies with buzzwords that mean nothing to Democrats such as democracy and will of the people. He’ll use it when he tries to shut down fracking, rams through the green new deal, hands cronies money and pardons Hunter Biden.
    This doesn’t sound like confidence, this sounds like con-man, a guy who knows we know he cheated and wants to gaslight us into thinking something different.”

    The chilling effect against our “free speech” is now on the brink. Can Trump pull off an alternative free speech media resource once he is free from the constraints of elected office, or will the deep state continue to pursue him like the hounds from hell.

  31. Deap says:

    Dominion makes the following statement: ….””Dominion is an American company, now headquartered in Denver. Dominion is not and has never been a front for communists,” he writes. “It has no ties to Hugo Chavez, the late dictator of Venezuela. It has never been involved in Venezuelan elections. None of Dominion’s systems use the Smartmatic software that has come under attack, as any state certification lab could verify.”……..
    Have at it, but it sounds like a lot of very carefully parsed denials. Denver is also the home base of the K-Street, DNC lobbying firm Brownstein, Faber, Hyatt and Shreck – good bedfellows to have right now.
    …”now headquartered” – where were you “headquartered when you sold all those election systems?
    —“communism” fell in the 1990’s – so not being a front for communists means exactly what?
    …..original operation was under another name when working for Chavez
    …..what as the connection between all of these variously named election systems – including the one that folded recently – they all morphed into the same entity according to Sydney Powell – hide the pea
    ….why did Dominion just scrub the name of the company recently raided by US Marshalls, FBI and the Texas Rangers in Austin Texas from their own website
    —do you employ the services of Brownstein, Faber, Hyatt and Shreck?
    Dominion denials get an A+ for creative writing. Hope Sidney gets to take them to court where this can all be sorted out under oath. Go ahead, sue her for defamation Dominion, or keep your pie hole shut.

  34. Deap and George Chamberlain,
    You’re both reading far too much into Dominion’s use of SolarWinds Orion network management software. Yes, SolarWinds was the victim of a sophisticated supply chain hack of its Orion upgrade platform. This potentially exposed over 600,000 SolarWinds customers worldwide to compromise. Included in those penetrated by this hack is the Department of Commerce, the Pentagon, the State Department, all five military services, NSA, DHS, DOJ and White House Communications. The list of victims includes many more. Initial analysis of C2 traffic points to the SVR’s APT29 hackers. These are the hackers who aggressively hacked into the Pentagon, State Department and White House networks back in 2014 and 2015. They were also the first group to hack into the DNC network in 2015.
    This hack was far more sophisticated than the 2014 and 2015 hack that relied on simple phishing attacks. The Orion platform was breached back in Spring 2020. This lead to the near undetectable breach of so many SolarWinds customers when they upgraded their IT management software. There were so many breaches that the SVR hackers ended up turning off their malware in systems they deemed unimportant. Their mistake was attempting to exploit the breach of FireEye’s network. FireEye caught the hack as the APT29 hackers exfiltrated some of FireEye’s tools. In other words, the SVR got greedy. FireEye quickly went public with the breach of their network and discovered the extent of this hack. The damage assessment and mitigation efforts will take a long time and the damage to US networks will undoubtedly be severe. Fortunately, in my opinion, this was an espionage operation and not a network attack.
    Dominion’s part in this major hack was as one of hundreds or thousands of victims. I’m sure DHS/CISA and others are keen to discover if the SVR breached and, more importantly, exploited a breach of the Dominion corporate network. Maybe the Russians did mess with our election, but I seriously doubt it. The chance that Dominion election machines are connected in any way to the Dominion corporate network is small.

    Why did McConnell congratulate Biden before it was all sorted out with the election frauds?

    What about Iran? They have been looking for ways to hit back Stuxnet,Soleimani,Fakhrizadeh at al and now have s significant cyber capability.

    Once attention turns from the machines to the actual paper ballots, the full scope of the alleged fraud will become clear.
    The FBI presumably has excellent forensic capabilities. Arizona presents the lowest hanging fruit.
    Manual recounts and a machine recounts, when compared in the five states, present a straightforward quantification of what the tabulating machines’s alterations came to.
    I guess the two Georgia manual recounts need to be set aside for the moment, but, still….

    Dr. Puck,
    When you make thousands of invalid paper ballots and mi them with all the valid ones then your recount simply recounts the fraudulent ones along with ones that might be valid. That’s why the corrupt actors did not segregate them to begin with. It can not be unmixed now so the constitutional remedy is return the matter to the legislature to select electors or turn it over to the House of Representatives and vote by state.

    President Donald Trump is now learning, in the words of his Rolling Stones campaign anthem, that he can’t always get what he wants. Sen. Mitch McConnell, on the other hand, usually does.
    The Republican Senate majority leader chose Tuesday, the day after the Electoral College affirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, as the moment to pull the floor out from under the defeated President. He belatedly congratulated his old Senate colleague 38 days after his election victory that Trump still denies.
    Putting his authority on the line, McConnell also asked his Senate colleagues not to stage any stunts when Congress meets for a joint session to ratify the election on January 6, effectively crushing the President’s hopes of an 11th hour reprieve, CNN reported.

    Deap: I’ve noticed the subtle change in WSJ reporting. It’s funny because when I was a lefty I thought their news reporting was great and read the paper in spite of the fact that I thought their editorial positions were bat guano crazy. After my conversion to the right I found the editorials on the mark and the news OK. Now the news reporting has moved to the place you described and the editorial section is a 50/50 proposition, depending on the day.

    I don’t think it would be wise to put much faith in the FBI until the obvious traitors, such as Comey, have been convicted.
    However, I suspect that some elements of the military intelligence community have the authority to look into this and that they have excellent investigative capabilities.
    If any clear smoking gun indicating foreign tampering with American elections can be found, then POTUS could declassify that smoking gun. Whereupon ordinary citizens would be marching in the streets, demanding that Biden and his team be tried for treason and other high crimes. If declassification proceeds quickly, Pompeo would not need to break a sweat as he delivers a smooth transition from the first Trump administration to the second Trump administration.

    Lieth, did you miss the follow-up article after you claim McConnell “blocked” election security legislation on 7/25/19. McConnell even added more funding and passed this on 9/20/19.
    Following article explains McConnell’s reasoning for fhis forward progress as well as President Trump’s dedication to enhanced election security – there was no “blocking” by anyone on this very troubling issue as you prematurely claimed:
    https://www.npr.org/2019/09/20/762499808/senate-breaks-logjam-on-election-security-cash-but-activists-say-more-is-needed
    After the 2020 debacle, there will never be the leaky sieve of election fraud in this country ever again – too many people got “woke”. Citizen oversight will be relentless in all following elections.

    Larry,
    OAN is reporting that Ratcliffe wants the Dec. 18 report to state there is evidence of CCP interference in the election yet some analysts are objecting. Which begs the question: Where is Gina Haspel?

  47. JJackson,
    Yes, I would think Iran is fully capable and well motivated to pull off this kind of hack. However planning for an operation would have begun in 2019 at the latest since execution began in March 2020 if not earlier. Iran would be looking to pull off some kind of destructive attack, cyber or otherwise, rather than pure espionage like this SolarWinds hack. China could also pull this off. They pulled off the OPM hack which was the most devastating piece of espionage perpetrated against us in my opinion. And that was pure espionage. It wasn’t until this year that China was officially recognized as the culprit for that hack. Before that it was just strongly suspected.
    Larry, I fail to understand your reluctance to acknowledge Russia’s capability and willingness to commit cyber espionage against the US. I’ve been among them when they did just that. They are not a bunch of happy-go-lucky elves riding glitter farting unicorns across the steppes. They hack the shit out of us just as we hack the shit out of them.

  48. This, if it’s a true and complete description, doesn’t inspire much confidence: China, Russia, Iran is BS, report in Jan is too late.
    The foreign interference comes from the voting machines and their connections many of which are outside USA.
    So it looks as if we can forget that route.

    “Death by a Thousand Cuts” – graphics help illustrate the now debunked “no evidence” election fraud claim: https://www.wnd.com/2020/12/4878293/
    Salami cutting I believe was the earlier term for small, but massive electronic fraud – take a dollar from a million bank accounts online is a lot easier than robbing 10 banks in broad daylight.
    Good to get the record public in hard copy, before it gets erased forever.

    Thanks for the reply. I was not thinking about Iran and the US election as I am unconvinced by the argument that it was stolen. More that if they had found an exploit they would be using it to see what they could as its user base may have things of interest given that it is only worth buying for large networks. I looked at it once as a potential solution for a customer but it was overkill for their needs. The theft of a network security test toolbox may well have been tempting enough.
