Dennis Montgomery, the man peddling the story about a super computer–i.e. HAMMER–that allegedly was used by dozens of foreign countries to steal the election from Donald Trump is a man with a checkered past and his claim filled with major inconsistencies. Those who have embraced the Dennis Montgomery fable may take umbrage that I dare challenge this narrative. But if you closely examine the documented claims you will see that there are significant discrepancies in this narrative:
- Montgomery and his supporters give three different dates for the “creation” of HAMMER—2003, 2004 or 2009.
- Montgomery is on tape admitting he did not create HAMMER but later is credited as the actual creator of the super-computer.
- The control of HAMMER is attributed to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Department of Justice (DOJ) and foreign governments.
- The purpose of HAMMER is described at various times as spying, blackmail or election interference.
These contradictions are significant and consequential. The way the story of HAMMER changes over time appears to be linked to issues that are prominent in the news cycle at the particular time.
I believe the HAMMER and SCORECARD claims have been introduced as a meme to discredit anyone who embraces them as true in order to challenge the fraudulent activity in the 2020 presidential election. The goal is to get people fixated on a mythical CIA computer controlled by foreigners and ignore the paper ballets.
This election was stolen via good old-fashioned ballot-stuffing. Machines, such as the infamous Dominion vote counters, may have been used to monitor how many votes were needed in key counties in order to push Joe Biden over the top, but the actual fraud and “flipping” of votes was done via paper ballots. The old Tammany Hall crowd of past centuries would be proud of this new crew… They got the job done!
