Germany’s Deutsche Weil has released an interesting article about election meddling as opposed to election manipulation. In the meddling category, they discuss the ongoing investigation in the US regarding Russian trolls on Facebook making misleading and inflammatory statements and the hacking of the DNC which led to the release of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
By contrast, manipulation is discussed relevant to the insecure voting computers Accuvote TS and TSX which are still used in numerous states. The machines are notoriously subject to hacking, malfunctioning, battery failure, shutting down and improper tabulation.
But the focus remains – on supposed, still unproven, ‘meddling’, while manipulation is rampant.
I suppose to some degree, nearly everyone meddles in the election, whether it be a rant, a Tweet, a dinner party, a media shell game, false advertising, PACs, advertising at all, or even signage. In that vein, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, Canada, etc… are all guilty of meddling in the US election. Money is transferred, media blitz campaigns favor a particular candidate, and the mud flinging ramps up.
In that light, why do we even care if Russia meddled or not?
MI6 meddled on behalf of Hillary when they created the Trump Dossier. Why are some meddlers better than others, as in immune? Because that’s what we are told by the media – who are directed by the Cabal, and in true cult fashion, the people believe.
Shouldn’t the focus be on ‘manipulation’? Actual Fraud? Once upon a time, perhaps machines were considered more reliable – that would be pre-hacking. But today, hackers hack everything, nothing is truly secure, so the war becomes whose hacker hacks first and whose hacker hacks last – because last finishes first. Right?
It is so ridiculous that even the website of the cyber secure voting electronics company – is hacked.
Of course human manipulation is just as verbose and largess as cameras have shown workers stuffing fake ballots into the boxes, and trashing legitimate ones. We had the infamous 75 non-existent people all registered at a non-existent residence, the turnout of 140% in Florida, the district that voted 100% Obama (which is mathematically impossible), busloads of illegals taken to polling stations, busloads of the elderly taken to two or more polling stations to vote twice!
The election process is a veritable MESS! And Russia has nothing to do with it. They were a ‘meddler’, like an old woman.
How do we overhaul the system? One recent concept was to create an audit trail allowing every polling station the ability to audit the machines using scanners and proprietary software, tossing votes and identifying questionable votes. Clear Ballot Group is one such company that recently has offered its services. But this method seems arbitrarily aligned with such ideas as AI and Facebook and Google censorship.
And personally, I don’t think censorship has anyone’s best interest at heart except those doing the censoring.
Not to mention that censorship is also election meddling.
It bears mentioning that a forum meeting in which Clear Ballot was a participant and donor included funding from Facebook, Startup Policy Lab, OSET Institute (which supports the John Brennan Center… as in Clinton), Alliance of Democracies based out of Denmark which works in conjunction with OSET to make sure the US election is… WHAT? And its partner organization who membership includes Joe Biden, and Nick Clegg of the UK who is Socially Liberal!! Brigade, decidedly democrat… T4A.org – whose management team boast an Obama frenzy. Ad Nauseam –
Sounds like more than meddling now. Sounds like manipulation.
When the auditor of the US election voting machines is financed and aligned by such notables as Brennan, Biden, Clegg, Clinton, Zuckerberg… Houston we’ve got a Major Problemo!
When the voting machines are audited by Liberal and Socialist companies – Houston we have a CONFLICT OF INTEREST!
And it ain’t Russia. It’s the US, the UK, and the hub capital of the Cabal – The Netherlands.
