As you likely know, there has been a lot of talk recently about voter fraud and the possible manipulation of votes from electronic voting equipment.
Among the accusations is that Dominion Voting Systems, a manufacturer of voting systems and equipment used in some 28 states for the 2020 elections, intentionally changed votes remotely in Biden’s favor.
Naturally, most Democrats and even some Republicans have insisted that this is nothing more than a ploy pushed by President Trump to legitimize his claims that Biden or at least his party cheated.
For Trump’s legal team, made up of former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, the famed attorney Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, among others, they are insistent that the fraud actually happened.
The group claims that Dominion, like most other voting machine manufacturers, are privately owned foreign companies. And as such, we have no control over their processes, how they report the votes, or even who is doing the counting.
Dominion, for instance, is actually based in Canada, with offices found in Denver. Now you might think, ‘well, Canada isn’t so bad. They are our allies, right?’ And that’s true to some extent.
But the same cannot be said for Venezuela, who owns the company Dominion gets their voting software from, you know, the same Venezuela where Chavez and Maduro live and operate.
According to Giuliani, “Dominion has a software that it gets from a company called SmartMatic. SmartMatic is a Delaware company, but it’s owned by Venezuelans, Venezuelans who are close to Chavez and Maduro. They actually count the vote. They count the vote in Barcelona, Spain. So the votes goes from here to Barcelona, Spain. They count it and then they give it back to us.”
In addition, Giuliani noted that a former CEO of SmartMatic was a known associate of George Soros, the godfather of the political left. And by recent, I mean like as in his name was taken off the payroll just “a couple of days ago,” according to Giuliani.
And to make matters worse, Ellis explains that the software “has a feature, not just a bug, but as a feature, the ability to cancel votes, manipulate votes, look at the vote tallies.”
Interesting info, right?
But what is even more interesting is that Giuliani and pals are not the only ones to have pointed out the potential problems of voting machines like Dominion’s. In fact, last year, in 2019, four Democratic members of Congress issued letters to several voting machine companies expressing concern for the “integrity of our elections.”
Those four include former and failed presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Sen. Ron Wyden from Oregon, and House Representative Mark Pocan of Wisconsin.
The four had heard that machines owned by Dominion, Hart InterCivic Inc., and Election Systems & Software in several areas had switched votes, rejected paper ballots, or broken down.
And so they wrote to the company owners demanding an explanation.
They wrote, “In 2018 alone, ‘voters in South Carolina (were) reporting machines that switched their votes after they’d inputted them, scanners (were) rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines (were) causing long lines in Indiana.’ In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in ‘nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states.’ And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received an improbably 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican Chairwoman said, ‘nothing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That’s a problem.’
A problem indeed.
The Democratic group noted that with problems like this, the ‘integrity of our elections’ is in great danger. Combine this with the fact that there are so few election technology companies on the market and that they all privately or foreign-owned, and our elections are even more in jeopardy.
And it seems that Giuliani can only agree.
During a recent interview with pundit Dan Bongino, Giuliani and Ellis were asked about the electronic voting process, particularly that of Dominion. Bongino asked, “How do we know reliably that their vote counts are, in fact, genuine and authentic?”
And in short, the answer is “We don’t,” as Giuliani pointed out. There is no way to know if the Venezuelans or Spanish, or whoever else is counting our votes, are doing so honestly and without bias.
