Voting

Part 4 of 6 in the series Big Lie

The Big Lie (German: Große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” — Wikipedia

David Graeber asks in Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology:

Q: How many voters does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. Because voters can’t change anything.1

“Ever since the presidential election of 2000 put the words ‘hanging chad’ into the lexicon, states are going high-tech,” according to a WishTV.com news site article available in 2005.2

The switch to computerized systems is to eliminate the problems with older voting methods such as punch card ballots which can “be rigged, by selectively die-cutting so that some chads dislodge more easily than others,” points out Bev Harris in “Embezzler Programmed Voting System” for the Scoop Independent News website.3

“Computer programmers say software bugs, hackers or electrical failures could cause more than 50,000 touch-screen machines used in precincts nationwide to delete or alter votes,” according to an Associated Press (AP) release “Con Job at Diebold Subsidiary” at the Wired.com website.4

Bob Fitrakis writes in his 2004 article “Black Box Voting” at the OnlineJournal.com news website:

The electronic voting industry is dominated by only a few corporations – Diebold, Election Systems & Software (ES&S) and Sequoia. Diebold and ES&S combined count for an estimated 80 percent of U.S. black box electronic votes.…

Johns Hopkins researchers at the Information Security Institute issued a report declaring that Diebold’s electronic voting software contained “stunning flaws.” The researchers concluded that vote totals could be altered at the voting machines and by remote access. Diebold vigorously refuted the Johns Hopkins report, claiming the researchers came to “a multitude of false conclusions.” 5

CBS News quotes Avi Rubin, a computer science professor at Johns Hopkins University in its “E-Voting: Is The Fix In?” report:

“We found all kinds of problems in the code,” he said. “A computer scientist can look at program and immediately tell you if it was written by professional programmers who know how to do software engineering or if it was just put together by a bunch of hacks. And, upon looking at the source code for Diebold, it was pretty clear that this was a real amateur job.” 6

“Omaha-based ES&S, and its Republican roots may be even stronger than Diebold’s,” writes Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman in their 2004 article “Diebold’s Political Machine” article for the Mother Jones website which details egregious “Black Box” miscounted votes including U.S. “Vice President Al Gore getting minus 19,000” in one county. “Wherever Diebold and ES&S go, irregularities and historic Republican upsets follow,” according to Fitrakis in “Black Box Voting.” 7

“At least five convicted felons secured management positions” at a Diebold subsidiary reports the “Con Job” article. “‘Mob ties, bribery, felony convictions, and threats of coercion are visible in the public record of the [Sequoia] election services company,’ according to investigative journalist and filmmaker Daniel Hopsicker, and reported in Spotlight.com,” writes Lynn Landes in a 2002 article for the CommonDreams.org News Center, “Elections In America – Assume Crooks Are In Control.” 8

An interview featured in a short documentary regarding the secretive Bilderberg Group comprised of globalist and industrialist leaders describes the difference between the Republicans and the Democrats:

Here’s the way you get it: it’s organized crime. All you do is call the Republicans the Genoveses and you call the Democrats the Gambinos. The people at the top, they treat it like a crap game, like it’s their crap game, like they’re making lots of money. Occasionally somebody at the table shoots each other, but the moment anything threatens their crap game they all unite to protect it. They’re both controlled by the same financial, economic, and corporate interests.9

“Post-election, conservative talk shows have taken a hit as their viewership realized they had been completely misinformed about where the election was going,” notes Justin Acuff for the Addicting Info website. “Although they assured their viewers that the election was very close, the statistics indicated otherwise and were confirmed the morning of November 7.” 10

With 1% of the votes in during the South Carolina primaries, a small sample of exit polling clearly shows Mitt Romney in the lead, but CBS News (and other stations using the same data), call the election in favor of Newt Gingrich.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?


    webmaster Skews Me replies: computer/hacker smarts; long, complicated passwords; nothing to hide; daily backups; family history; connections; luck; wary of software, fake login screens; 99% use from home; and in many cases Reputation.
