Voting software under scrutiny, as GOP officials call for investigations into allegations

Many researchers and GOP officials are questioning the reliability of voting machines used by state and local officials in the 2020 presidential election, and concerns have mounted as information surfaces that some of the machines glitched in favor of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Although no states have called the election, the main stream media, to include Fox News, has named Biden the presumptive winner of the U.S. Presidential elections. The move to do so has caused significant concerns among the 70 plus million Americans that voted for President Donald Trump in the election.

The use of the machines operated by Dominion Voting Systems, as well as Election Systems, register “votes in bar codes that the human eye cannot decipher,” according to a story written by the  Associated Press in February. The rush to use these machines, as well was, mail-in-ballots (universal ballots) was based on the COVID-19 scare and the rush is criticized by many as it did not afford the states or local officials the time to test and ensure the sanctity of the voting process, analysts and GOP officials contend.

In fact, Dominion Voting System was a huge concern in Texas. After a review of the system Texas rejected it saying the states inspectors encountered “multiple hardware issues.” They also noted that it could not certify it was “safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation.”

Dominion Voting Systems could not be immediately reached for comment but the company disagreed with the decision by the state of Texas and stated that their system was safe to use by voters.

On Nov. 6., Rep. Paul Gosar, R- Arizona, called to urgently “investigate the accuracy and reliability of the Dominion ballot software.” He made his statement after reports of glitches in the software in other states, including Michigan.

In Michigan roughly 6,000 votes in one district that were meant for President Donald Trump, were given to former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, whose been named the presumptive President-Elect by main stream media outlets, including Fox News.

“I am calling on @dougducey to call a special session of the AZ Legislature under Article IV of our state constitution to investigate the accuracy and reliability of the Dominion ballot software and its impact on our general election,” Gosar said.

“I am calling on @dougducey to call a special session of the AZ Legislature under Article IV of our state constitution to investigate the accuracy and reliability of the Dominion ballot software and its impact on our general election,” Gosar said.

Georgia implemented the Dominion Voting System this year and the Atlanta Journal Constitution warned in October that the system was open to cyber attacks and hacking.

“Georgia’s new electronic voting system is vulnerable to cyberattacks that could undermine public confidence, create chaos at the polls or even manipulate the results on Election Day,” stated the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in October.

In October, despite promises that the system was secure the AJC noted:

Instead, an investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shows, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office weakened the system’s defenses, disabling password protections on a key component that controls who is allowed to vote.

The report added that computer scientists, voting-rights activists, U.S. intelligence agencies and a federal judge have continuously warned of security deficiencies in Georgia’s system, but state officials have dismissed their concerns.

Moreover, despite Dominion’s disagreement with the findings the report from AJC noted that the manipulation of the votes could not be detectable until after the election took place, if at all.

Officials tell voters to verify their selections on a paper ballot before feeding it into an optical scanner. But the scanner doesn’t record the text that voters see; rather, it reads an unencrypted quick response, or QR, barcode that is indecipherable to the human eye. Either by tampering with individual voting machines or by infiltrating the state’s central elections server, hackers could systematically alter the barcodes to change votes.

Such a manipulation could not be detected without an audit after the election.

The new voting system “presents serious security vulnerability and operational issues” caused by “fundamental deficits and exposure,” U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg wrote in a recent order, in which she criticized state officials for not taking the problems more seriously.

“These risks,” Totenberg wrote, “are neither hypothetical nor remote under the current circumstances.”

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
