Voting Machines Easily Hacked: Can We Say Rigged Elections?



Paper Ballots Anyone? Information from the following posts (three of many on this subject) demonstrates that both election rigging and ballot box stuffing were the norm in many places in the old days. For those of us who did not know, we now see that the Sequoia AVC Advantage, one of the oldest and most vulnerable electronic voting machines in the United States, is as secure as a home with no locks on its doors and the window left wide open. 


Just one case:  Electronic Voting Fraud Favoring Democrats Found In Illinois and Maryland.:
Kenric Ward reporting for Watchdog.org has found software problems in voting machines Illinois and in Maryland that just happen to switch the votes to Democrat from Republican. Voters are finding that after they mark their selection for a Republican on the electronic machine, it puts the “x” on the Democrat candidate above automatically and it happens as much as five times. If the voter isn’t paying attention, they would never know. 
This same exact problem is occurring in two states, Maryland and Illinois.

Illinois Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to the Schaumburg Public Library last Monday to vote for himself. “Instead, it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan told Watchdog.org.

“You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat,” Moynihan said.

He notified the election judge at his polling place.

Joe Torre, election director in Anne Arundel, called it a “calibration issue” involving a single machine. However, more than one machine was involved and it appears to be more of a software issue.

A software developer for US intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the calibration excuse defies credulity.

“It’s a software issue, and it’s incredibly suspicious that a bug like that could slip through accidentally. It defies belief,” said Tony Heller.
Donald Trump has voiced concerns that the election will be rigged. Well rigging seems to be a way of life in American elections. 

For a most famous example, there is documented proof of the classic Chicago way regarding how elections are stolen in Chicago.:
On December 14, 1984, Chief Judge Frank McGarr of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois publicly released the federal grand jury’s report on the 1982 election-only the third time in the history of the court that a grand jury report had been made public. The evidence revealed substantial vote fraud in Chicago during the November 2, 1982, election and found “that similar fraudulent activities have occurred prior to 1982.”

What particularly struck FBI agent Ernest Locker was how routine vote fraud was for the precinct captains, election judges, poll watchers, and political party workers he interviewed. They had been taught how to steal votes (and elections) by their predecessors, who had in turn been taught by their predecessors. Based on his investigation, Locker came to believe the claims, hotly debated among historians, that Mayor Daley threw the 1960 presidential election for John Kennedy with massive ballot stuffing in Chicago. This type of voter fraud, stated Locker, “was an accepted way of life in Chicago.”

Soon after the investigation started, it became evident that this was not a case of isolated wrongdoing, but rather a case of extensive, substantial, and widespread fraud in precincts and wards throughout Chicago.

This should jolt the reader:

When Princeton professor Andrew Appel decided to hack into a voting machine, he didn’t try to mimic the Russian attackers who hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s database last month. He didn’t write malicious code, or linger near a polling place where the machines can go unguarded for days.

Instead, he bought one online.

With a few cursory clicks of a mouse, Appel parted with $82 and became the owner of an ungainly metallic giant called the Sequoia AVC Advantage, one of the oldest and vulnerable, electronic voting machines in the United States (among other places it’s deployed in Louisiana, New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania).

No sooner did a team of bewildered deliverymen roll the 250-pound device into a conference room near Appel’s cramped, third-floor office than the professor set to work. 


He summoned a graduate student named Alex Halderman, who could pick the machine’s lock in seven seconds. Clutching a screwdriver, he deftly wedged out the four ROM chips—they weren’t soldered into the circuit board, as sense might dictate—making it simple to replace them with one of his own: A version of modified firmware that could throw off the machine’s results, subtly altering the tally of votes, never to betray a hint to the voter.


The attack was concluded in minutes. To mark the achievement, his student snapped a photo of Appel—oblong features, messy black locks and a salt-and-pepper beard—grinning for the camera, fists still on the circuit board, as if to look directly into the eyes of the American taxpayer: Don’t look at me—you’re the one who paid for this thing.

Do honest elections stand a chance? How many times have people suspected voter fraud and have been proven to be correct--well after the election? Add to that the rigging of the machines, which has apparently been proven to be a cake walk, and the peoples' voice will matter not. The Powers That Be will ALWAYS win.

Those who wish to weaken/ripen America for the Globalist takeover are in the driver's seat.

The only way the anti-globalist patriots can win is to have a massive turnout that cannot be overcome by various forms of fraud, with laws assuring that one must prove citizenship in order to vote, and a watchful eye on the voting machine .

Antipathy, despair, and ennui are the primary drivers of low turnout and assured defeat. Patriots cannot afford to succumb to the enemy's manipulations and machinations. We have a nation at risk. We must guard it.
