ASOG Dominion Report, Review Part 2

Here, in Part 2, I’m picking up where I left off in the first posting:

https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2020/12/17/asog-dominion-report-a-review/

This is where the Tech Talk gets thicker as it is “process” stuff. It starts off with the “chain of custody” head end. Where you went, what you got.

C. PROCESS

We visited Antrim County twice: November 27, 2020 and December 6, 2020. On November 27, 2020, we visited Central Lake Township, Star Township, and Mancelona Township. We examined the Dominion Voting Systems tabulators and tabulator roles.

On December 6, 2020, we visited the Antrim County Clerk’s office. We inspected and performed forensic duplication of the following:

1. Antrim County Election Management Server running Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002;
2. Compact Flash cards used by the local precincts in their Dominion ImageCast Precinct;
3. USB memory sticks used by the Dominion VAT (Voter Assist Terminals); and
4. USB memory sticks used for the Poll Book.

The phrase “forensic duplication” has specific term of art meaning. You use software and hardware to do the copy that prevents writing to the media in question. You do NOT boot up the device (as various malware can scrub it). You document everything and every step. In serious cases you have two parties involved, one doing the work and a second, usually management level, observing and documenting and doing QA / policing. Chain of custody is documented and assured. Often the copy is put under seal and / or in a locked container when not actively being forensically inspected. Think NCIS Crime Lab…

So went to the right Government offices and picked up an EMS Election Management Server (with specific software), a Compact Flash with the “Dominion ImageCast Precinct” software on it. Plural, so a couple of versions. Then USB memory sticks (the ubiquitous “thumb drive”) for the actual voter terminal (VAT) and poll station “Poll Book”.

Again we have critical bits on easily palmed / swapped plug in devices. THE best way to hijack machines, inject malware, swap OS, etc.

Dominion voting system is a Canadian owned company with global subsidiaries. It is owned by Staple Street Capital which is in turn owned by UBS Securities LLC, of which 3 out of their 7 board members are Chinese nationals. The Dominion software is licensed from Smartmatic which is a Venezuelan owned and controlled company. Dominion Server locations have been determined to be in Serbia, Canada, the US, Spain and Germany.

Defining where all the company in question does things. What legal domains to you necessarily cross, what’s the likely network traffic flow, what “reputationally bad” places might be involved.

First issue is we’re using a FOREIGN ACTOR (company) to tally our votes? OK, pull in “foreign influence” EO. Then we start getting Shell Companies. Staple Street Capital with 3 CCP (ANY Chinese national who gets great posts outside China must be a Chinese Communist Party member…) board members. (Who, we know, mysteriously resigned right after folks started asking questions about Dominion).

Again we have “Foreign Influence” issues. AND a major antagonist country. The software comes from unsavory sources too, Venezuela. Not our friend and not trustworthy At All. Locations in Serbia? WT? And our votes go off to Spain and / or Germany too? Not like the EU isn’t in love with Trump, now is it.

Remember that pretty much every nation, and certainly the E.U., has their own Secret Services / TLAs that have legal authority to screw with your stuff… Once again, Foreign Influence comes into play.

D. CENTRAL LAKE TOWNSHIP

1. On November 27, 2020, part of our forensics team visited the Central Lake Township in Michigan to inspect the Dominion ImageCast Precint for possible hardware issues on behalf of a local lawsuit filed by Michigan attorney Matthew DePerno on behalf of William Bailey. In our conversations with the clerk of Central Lake Township Ms. Judith L. Kosloski, she presented to us “two separate paper totals tape” from Tabulator ID 2.
• One dated “Poll Opened Nov. 03/2020 06:38:48” (Roll 1);
• Another dated “Poll Opened Nov. 06/2020 09:21:58” (Roll 2).

2. We were then told by Ms. Kosloski that on November 5, 2020, Ms. Kosloski was notified by Connie Wing of the County Clerk’s Office and asked to bring the tabulator and ballots to the County Clerk’s office for re-tabulation. They ran the ballots and printed “Roll 2”. She noticed a difference in the votes and brought it up to the clerk, but canvasing still occurred, and her objections were not addressed.

3. Our team analyzed both rolls and compared the results. Roll 1 had 1,494 total votes and Roll 2 had 1,491 votes (Roll 2 had 3 less ballots because 3 ballots were damaged in the process.)

4. “Statement of Votes Cast from Antrim” shows that only 1,491 votes were counted, and the 3 ballots that were damaged were not entered into final results.

In Central Lake Township, they inspected a “Precinct” machine (though they misspelled it, unless that’s a brand name ‘cutsy’ thing). They got 2 distinct poll tapes, both different. The difference is traced to damaged ballot handling.

5. Ms. Kosloski stated that she and her assistant manually refilled out the three ballots, curing them, and ran them through the ballot counting system – but the final numbers do not reflect the inclusion of those 3 damaged ballots.

6. This is the most preliminary report of serious election fraud indicators. In comparing the numbers on both rolls, we estimate 1,474 votes changed across the two rolls, between the first and the second time the exact same ballots were run through the County Clerk’s vote counting machine – which is almost the same number of voters that voted in total.

• 742 votes were added to School Board Member for Central Lake Schools (3)
• 657 votes were removed from School Board Member for Ellsworth Schools (2)

The clerk says they replaced the damaged ballots, so both tapes ought to match, but they don’t. That’s an indication of something being “not right” right there.

Then, in the School Board votes, some major WT? changes happened, flipping the votes to very different numbers. Something seriously wrong with that. Another “Never the same way twice” thing (or perhaps a pre-made bogus tape swapped in, that missed the “cured” ballots?)

• 7 votes were added to the total for State Proposal 20-1 (1) and out of those there were 611 votes moved between the Yes and No Categories.

7. There were incremental changes throughout the rolls with some significant adjustments between the 2 rolls that were reviewed. This demonstrates conclusively that votes can be and were changed during the second machine count after the software update. That should be impossible especially at such a high percentage to total votes cast.

Then an OMG on State Proposal 20-1 with LOTS of votes flipped between NO and YES. It would be interesting to know what the measure was, if this changed the winner, and who was advocating for or against it.

The the percent changes are so large clearly indicates either the software was grievously broken, or tuned for fraud.

For the images, you will have to hit the link to the original as cut /past on PDF images doesn’t seem to be working for me (or at all?):

https://www.depernolaw.com/uploads/2/7/0/2/27029178/antrim_michigan_forensics_report_%5B121320%5D_v2_%5Bredacted%5D.pdf

8. For the School Board Member for Central Lake Schools (3) [Image 1] there were 742 votes added to this vote total. Since multiple people were elected, this did not change the result of both candidates being elected, but one does see a change in who had most votes. If it were a single-person election this would have changed the outcome and demonstrates conclusively that votes can be and were changed during the second machine counting. That should be impossible.

So perhaps the “diddle” was hitting wider than the intended target? Or one guy just paid a bit more to come in first?

9. For the School Board Member for Ellsworth Schools (2) [Image 2]

• Shows 657 votes being removed from this election.
• In this case, only 3 people who were eligible to vote actually voted.

Since there were 2 votes allowed for each voter to cast.

• The recount correctly shows 6 votes.
But on election night, there was a major calculation issue:

Image 2 shows 663 votes counted on Election Night when the recount (and real) total is just 6. Something seriously amiss there.

10. In State Proposal 20-1 (1), [Image 3] there is a major change in votes in this category.
• There were 774 votes for YES during the election, to 1,083 votes for YES on the recount a change of 309 votes.
• 7 votes were added to the total for State Proposal 20-1 (1) out of those there were 611 votes moved between the Yes and No Categories.

That’s a whole lot of Vote Diddle right there. I wonder if this was a Majority Wins Proposal or a “needs 2/3” Proposal? I.e. did this change the result?

11. State Proposal 20-1 (1) is a fairly technical and complicated proposed amendment to the Michigan Constitution to change the disposition and allowable uses of future revenue generated from oil and gas bonuses, rentals and royalties from state-owned land. Information about the proposal:
https://crcmich.org/publications/statewide-ballot-proposal-20-1-michigan-naturalresources-trust-fund

12. A Proposed Initiated Ordinance to Authorize One (1) Marihuana (sic) Retailer Establishment Within the Village of Central Lake (1). [Image 4]
• On election night, it was a tie vote.
• Then, on the rerun of ballots 3 ballots were destroyed, but only one vote changed on the totals to allow the proposal to pass.

When 3 ballots were not counted and programming change on the tabulator was installed the proposal passed with 1 vote being removed from the No vote.

OK, issues, but no “smoking gun” (so to speak ;-)

13. On Sunday December 6, 2020, our forensics team visited the Antrim County Clerk. There were two USB memory sticks used, one contained the software package used to tabulate election results on November 3, 2020, and the other was programmed on November 6, 2020 with a different software package which yielded significantly different voting outcomes. The election data package is used by the Dominion Democracy Suite software & election management system software to upload programming information onto the Compact Flash Cards for the Dominion ImageCast Precinct to enable it to calculate ballot totals.

14. This software programming should be standard across all voting machines systems for the duration of the entire election if accurate tabulation is the expected outcome as required by US Election Law. This intentional difference in software programming is a design feature to alter election outcomes.

You have critical software floating around on USB thumb drives. It gets loaded onto the Compact Flash to be put into the machines. Quasi makes sense in that most folks do not have a CF drive or adapter. (I do, but that’s just me ;-)

But number 14 is the big one. In a secure machine, software would be Very Hard To Change, require special authorities and leave a huge audit trail / chain of custody. You do it the way Dominion did if you want to be able to palm a USB thumb drive and change elections on the fly, then cover the act by swapping back after the election. As was done. And, oh yeah, this is a violation of US Election Law on the face of it.

IMHO, this alone makes the Dominion machines unfit for purpose of an accurate election.

15. The election day outcomes were calculated using the original software programming on November 3, 2020. On November 5, 2020 the township clerk was asked to re-run the Central Lake Township ballots and was given no explanation for this unusual request. On November 6, 2020 the Antrim County Clerk, Sheryl Guy issued the second version of software to re-run the same Central Lake Township ballots and oversaw the process. This resulted in greater than a 60% change in voting results, inexplicably impacting every single election contest in a township with less than 1500 voters. These errors far exceed the ballot error rate standard of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%) as required by federal election law.

• The original election programming files are last dated 09/25/2020 1:24pm
• The updated election data package files are last dated 10/22/2020 10:27 am.

They ran the count twice. Once with the original Diddle Software, then an updated version from just after the election was used. They gave dramatically different results. (Later a 3rd run with other software gives the correct result matching the hand count per the NYT, so suspicion would be that both runs were DiddleWare, but trying to shape the results differently, or more likely, run 2, where Trump won, was so wrong on total counts that a “fix” to the “cover up ware” was needed.) It is also possible that the difference was a fix to the XML “bug” tossing ballots to the Diddle Box (adjudication) process.

16. As the tabulator tape totals prove, there were large numbers of votes switched from the November 3, 2020 tape to the November 6, 2020 tape. This was solely based on using different software versions of the operating program to calculate votes, not tabulate votes. This is evidenced by using same the Dominion System with two different software program versions contained on the two different USB Memory Devices.

The tabulator paper tape for the two runs proves the software was a bit daft. Used the same machine, so not the hardware.

Next we cite the laws this violates:

17. The Help America Vote Act, Safe Harbor provides a 90-day period prior to elections where no changes can be made to election systems. To make changes would require recertification of the entire system for use in the election. The Dominion User Guide prescribes the proper procedure to test machines with test ballots to compare the results to validate machine functionality to determine if the Dominion ImageCast Precinct was programmed correctly. If this occurred a ballot misconfiguration would have been identified. Once the software was updated to the 10/22/2020 software the test ballots should have been re-run to validate the vote totals to confirm the machine was configured correctly.

So they violated the 90 days prescribed by law for software changes. Then they skipped the required “recertification” process (can’t certify a diddle after all… so looks a lot like deliberate). NO testing / QA done that would demonstrate the failure.

So “process crimes” in that the staff were either, again, Idiots or Criminals, your choice.

18. The November 6, 2020 note from The Office of the Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson states: “The correct results always were and continue to be reflected on the tabulator totals tape and on the ballots themselves. Even if the error in the reported unofficial results had not been quickly noticed, it would have been identified during the county canvass. Boards of County Canvassers, which are composed of 2 Democrats and 2 Republicans, review the printed totals tape from each tabulator during the canvass to verify the reported vote totals are correct.”

• Source: https://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,4670,7-127-1640_9150-544676–,00.html

So SoS Jocelyn is again ducking, dodging, and weaving, and spouting falsehoods. First off, notice it is always “tape” singular. I ask “WHICH Tape of the tapeS?” So all the Board of Canvassers could do is look at the hand chosen tape and say, uh, yeah, matches the numbers you reported from the same run of the machine. Pretty lame.

19. The Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s statement is false. Our findings show that the tabulator tape totals were significantly altered by utilization of two different program versions, and not just the Dominion Election Management System. This is the opposite of the claim that the Office of the Secretary of State made on its website. The fact that these significant errors were not caught in ballot testing and not caught by the local county clerk shows that there are major inherent built-in vulnerabilities and process flaws in the Dominion Election Management System, and that other townships/precincts and the entire election have been affected.

And they noticed it too. Nice. But at least now we know why Soros ran an SoS Secretary of State grooming and funding program. To have “the right people” in place to assure no action was taken to find fraud and election machine corruption of the election.

Then a reference to the “process” issues that are broken (likely broken by design. So find out who was in charge of that process and either fire or arrest them.)

They also point out this means anywhere these machines are in use with that software is a huge issue affecting the entire election.

20. On Sunday December 6, 2020, our forensics team visited the Antrim County Clerk office to perform forensic duplication of the Antrim County Election Management Server running Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002.

21. Forensic copies of the Compact Flash cards used by the local precincts in their Dominion ImageCast Precinct were inspected, USB memory sticks used by the Dominion VAT (Voter Assist Terminals) and the USB memory sticks used for the Poll Book were forensically duplicated.

They got good, clean, forensic class copies of the software on the machines on Dec. 6, 2020 and the USB thumb drives. Note that there are “levels” of Dominion. VAT at the polling place. ImageCast for the polling Precinct. Then the Management Server at the County Clerk office. Any or all could be involved, and potentially in different ways in different places.

22. We have been told that the ballot design and configuration for the Dominion ImageCast Precinct and VAT were provided by ElectionSource.com which is which is owned by MC&E, Inc of Grand Rapids, MI.

These folks designed the actual ballot used. Does that matter? Maybe, maybe not. Does your felt pen bleed through to somewhere important, spoiling your ballot?

E. MANCELONA TOWNSHIP

1. In Mancelona township, problems with software versions were also known to have been present. Mancelona elections officials understood that ballot processing issued were not accurate and used the second version of software to process votes on 4 November, again an election de-certifying event, as no changes to the election system are authorized by law in the 90 days preceding elections without re-certification.

2. Once the 10/22/2020 software update was performed on the Dominion ImageCast Precinct the test ballot process should have been performed to validate the programming. There is no indication that this procedure was performed.

So another township had issues with wrong numbers, but noticed, and tried other software. This decertifies the results, violates election law, and they did no testing either.

F. ANTRIM COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE
1. Pursuant to a court ordered inspection, we participated in an onsite collection effort at the Antrim County Clerk’s office on December 6, 2020. [Image 5]:

Among other items forensically collected, the Antrim County Election Management Server (EMS) with Democracy Suite was forensically collected.
[Images 6 and 7].

The EMS (Election Management Server) was a:

Dell Precision Tower 3420.
Service Tag: 6NB0KH2

The EMS contained 2 hard drives in a RAID-1 configuration. That is the 2 drives redundantly stored the same information and the server could continue to operate if either of the 2 hard drives failed. The EMS was booted via the Linux Boot USB memory sticks and both hard drives were forensically imaged. At the onset of the collection process we observed that the initial program thumb drive was not secured in the vault with the CF cards and other thumbdrives. We watched as the County employees, including Clerk Sheryl Guy searched throughout the office for the missing thumb drive. Eventually they found the missing thumb drive in an unsecured and unlocked desk drawer along with multiple other random thumb drives. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.

The election server is a garden variety DELL computer. RAID is a way to use 2 drives (or more) storing the data with enough duplication you can recover it if a drive dies. Nice, but somewhat irrelevant.

They were able to take over the box using Linux on an external USB thumb drive (memory stick). This shows anyone with a pocket can take over the box in the dead of night and do whatever they want. I’ve done this regularly as Systems Administrator to recover crashed machines. It is not hard at all.

Again, “forensically imaged” means with ro (Read Only) disk mount, no write possible, not booting the operating system on the box, and with complete audit trail and chain of custody of the copy process on the disks. Both disks were copied, so “compare and contrast” can be done.

So the relevant software was just kicking around in someone’s desk drawer where ANYONE could find it, duplicate it, replace it. It could get lost. No chain of custody. Just OMG stupid. And world class insecure.

Next a few listings of tools used.

G. FORENSIC COLLECTION

We used a built for purpose Linux Boot USB memory stick to boot the EMS in a forensically sound mode. We then used Ewfacquire to make a forensic image of the 2 independent internal hard drives. Ewfacquire created an E01 file format forensic image with built-in integrity verification via MD5 hash. We used Ewfverify to verify the forensic image acquired was a true and accurate copy of the original disk. That was done for both forensic images

So used a USB stick to boot the box, then a forensic class copy software that does an “MD5 Hash”. That’s a sum across all digits using a fancy method that means if ANY bits change, the “hash” will no longer be the same. It assures your copy is EXACTLY right.

H. ANALYSIS TOOLS

X-Ways Forensics: We used X-Ways Forensics, a commercial Computer Forensic tool, to verify the image was useable and full disk encryption was not in use. In particular we confirmed that Bit locker was not in use on the EMS. Other tools used: PassMark – OSForensics, Truxton – Forensics, Cellebrite – Physical Analyzer, Blackbag-Blacklight Forensic Software, Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, Virtual Box, and miscellaneous other tools and scripts.

OK, the thing you care about here is they are using high class validated tools (software mostly) to look at things, and prove the disk had no disk level encryption to break (or be blocked trying…)

Good kit, and lucky for them (and for any systems cracker…) no disk encryption.

So what did they do with this stuff?

I. SERVER OVERVIEW AND SUMMARY

1. Our initial audit on the computer running the Democracy Suite Software showed that standard computer security best practices were not applied. These minimum-security standards are outlined the 2002 HAVA, and FEC Voting System Standards – it did not even meet the minimum standards required of a government desktop computer.

In other words, this highly important very critical infrastructure server did not meet the standards required for the building Janitor email reading desktop.

2. The election data software package USB drives (November 2020 election, and November 2020 election updated) are secured with bitlocker encryption software, but they were not stored securely on-site. At the time of our forensic examination, the election data package files were already moved to an unsecure desktop computer and were residing on an unencrypted hard drive. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity. Key Findings on Desktop and Server Configuration: – There were multiple Microsoft security updates as well as Microsoft SQL Server updates which should have been deployed, however there is no evidence that these security patches were ever installed. As described below, many of the software packages were out of date and vulnerable to various methods of attack.

So the USB drives have “bitlocker” encryption security (I presume “data software” means actual vote tallies?) BUT they copied that data onto entirely insecure desktops. So the Janitor could get into it if desired. (No knock on Janitors. I ran the Janitorial service at one company…)

Then comes the litany of AwShits:

a) Computer initial configuration on 10/03/2018 13:08:11:911
b) Computer final configuration of server software on 4/10/2019
c) Hard Drive not Encrypted at Rest
d) Microsoft SQL Server Database not protected with password.
e) Democracy Suite Admin Passwords are reused and share passwords.
f) Antivirus is 4.5 years outdated
g) Windows updates are 3.86 years out of date.
h) When computer was last configured on 04/10/2019 the windows updates were 2.11 years out of date.
i) User of computer uses a Super User Account.

a) Initially configured a few years ago.
b) Last configuration was about 1 year 6 months ago.
c) Hard drive anyone can read, write, or clone. No encryption.
d) NO PASSWORD on the database, anyone can read or change it.
e) Antivirus software functionally useless against present threats.
g) OMG are they back level on Windows patches.
h) And have been for a long while.
i) When in use, a fumble fingered user can destroy anything, change anything.

This is just a horribly insecure and drain bammaged machine.

Then there’s a bunch of detail on each of those. I’ll only comment if it’s different than the list I’ve already given.

3. The hard drive was not encrypted at rest – which means that if hard drives are removed or initially booted off an external USB drive the files are susceptible to manipulation directly. An attacker is able to mount the hard drive because it is unencrypted, allowing for the manipulation and replacement of any file on the system.

4. The Microsoft SQL Server database files were not properly secured to allow modifications of the database files.

5. The Democracy Suite Software user account logins and passwords are stored in the unsecured database tables and the multiple Election System Administrator accounts share the same password, which means that there are no audit trails for vote changes, deletions, blank ballot voting, or batch vote alterations or adjudication.

Anyone with a tiny bit of clue can get the passwords from a wide open database. Everyone shares a password so no way to say who logged on and did the Diddle (or just screwed up).

6. Antivirus definition is 1666 days old on 12/11/2020. Antrim County updates its system with USB drives. USB drives are the most common vectors for injecting malware into computer systems. The failure to properly update the antivirus definition drastically increases the harm cause by malware from other machines being transmitted to the voting system.

7. Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Offline Update is used to enable updates the computer – which is a package of files normally downloaded from the internet but compiled into a program to put on a USB drive to manually update server systems.

8. Failure to properly update the voting system demonstrates a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.

9. There are 15 additional updates that should have been installed on the server to adhere to Microsoft Standards to fix known vulnerabilities. For the 4/10/2019 install, the most updated version of the update files would have been 03/13/2019 which is 11.6.1 which is 15 updates newer than 10.9.1

This means the updates installed were 2 years, 1 month, 13 days behind the most current update at the time. This includes security updates and fixes. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.

10. S

Anyone who can download the current set of hacker tools (i.e. any “script kiddy”) can break into these boxes and do whatever they want. Even leave behind persistent threat appliances.

Note that in the news is the latest Big Hack Scandal and Dominion used their product, so any internet connected machines were subject to “walk right in” for about 3 to 6 months. It is also widely used at various levels of governments.

https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2020/12/14/huge-solarwinds-systems-hack-of-government/

10. Super User Administrator account is the primary account used to operate the Dominion Election Management System which is a major security risk. The user logged in has the ability to make major changes to the system and install software which means that there is no oversight to ensure appropriate management controls – i.e. anyone who has access to the shared administrator user names and passwords can make significant changes to the entire voting system. The shared usernames and passwords mean that these changes can be made in an anonymous fashion with no tracking or attribution.

This is just sooo wrong. ANYONE who can get on the box can change ANYTHING.

From here on down, they go into the data differences, and a lot of redactions. We’re in the home stretch.

J. ERROR RATES

1. We reviewed the Tabulation logs in their entirety for 11/6/2020. The election logs for Antrim County consist of 15,676 total lines or events.

• Of the 15,676 there were a total of 10,667 critical errors/warnings or a 68.05% error rate.

• Most of the errors were related to configuration errors that could result in overall tabulation errors or adjudication. These 11/6/2020 tabulation totals were used as the official results.

Error rate was 68%, more than correct votes. These were used as official results. Then a bunch of details of what was bogus. We also get some specs on what the system is expected to do.

2. For examples, there were 1,222 ballots reversed out of 1,491 total ballots cast, thus resulting in an 81.96% rejection rate. Some of which were reversed due to “Ballot’s size exceeds maximum expected ballot size”.

• According to the NCSL, Michigan requires testing by a federally accredited laboratory for voting systems. In section 4.1.1 of the Voluntary Voting Systems Guidelines (VVSG) Accuracy Requirements a. All systems shall achieve a report total error rate of no more than one in 125,000.

https://www.eac.gov/sites/default/files/eac_assets/1/28/VVSG.1.1.VOL.1.FINAL1.pdf

• In section 4.1.3.2 Memory Stability of the VVSG it states that Memory devices used to retain election management data shall have demonstrated error free data retention for a period of 22 months.

• In section 4.1.6.1 Paper-based System Processing Requirements subsection a. of the VVSG it states “The ability of the system to produce and receive electronic signals from the scanning of the ballot, perform logical and numerical operations upon these data, and reproduce the contents of memory when required shall be sufficiently free of error to enable satisfaction of the system-level accuracy requirement indicated in Subsection 4.1.1.”

These are not human errors; this is definitively related to the software and software configurations resulting in error rates far beyond the thresholds listed in the guidelines.

Ballot size can bugger an election tally? OK, so who decides how big it is? Maybe that ballot design company does need a closer look.

3. A high “error rate” in the election software (in this case 68.05%) reflects an algorithm used that will weight one candidate greater than another (for instance, weight a specific candidate at a 2/3 to approximately 1/3 ratio). In the logs we identified that the RCV or Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm was enabled (see image below from the Dominion manual). This allows the user to apply a weighted numerical value to candidates and change the overall result. The declaration of winners can be done on a basis of points, not votes. [Image 8]:

So the machine was set up to make votes for one candidate count for more, and another candidate less. A “feature” of the software. IMHO that alone makes them unsuited for purpose.

4. The Dominion software configuration logs in the Divert Options, shows that all write-in ballots were flagged to be diverted automatically for adjudication. This means that all write-in ballots were sent for “adjudication” by a poll worker or election official to process the ballot based on voter “intent”. Adjudication files allow a computer operator to decide to whom to award those votes (or to trash them).

5. In the logs all but two of the Override Options were enabled on these machines, thus allowing any operator to change those votes. [Image 9]:

Ok, probably not a lot of write in ballots, but they were set so anyone can change them.

6. In the logs all but two of the Override Options were enabled on these machines,thus allowing any operator to change those votes. This gives the system operators carte blanche to adjudicate ballots, in this case 81.96% of the total cast ballots with no audit trail or oversight. [Image 10]:

BUT the same override ability was available for the other ballots as well. So basically poll workers get to decide who wins. Who chooses poll workers?

7. On 12/8/2020 Microsoft issued 58 security patches across 10+ products, some of which were used for the election software machine, server and programs. Of the 58 security fixes 22, were patches to remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities. [Image 11]:

“RCE” is just what it sounds like. It lets someone far far away run software on your machine. Basically, it’s a hackers delight that lets them take over your machine.

Then there’s a very nice picture of how all the different levels connect, so hit the link, with the different classes of Dominion machines illustrated.

8. We reviewed the Election Management System logs (EmsLogger) in their entirety from 9/19/2020 through 11/21/2020 for the Project: Antrim November 2020. There were configuration errors throughout the set-up, election and tabulation of results. The last error for Central Lake Township, Precinct 1 occurred on 11/21/2020 at 14:35:11 System.Xml.XmlException System.Xml.XmlException: The ‘ ‘ character, hexadecimal value 0x20, cannot be included in a name. Bottom line is that this is a calibration that rejects the vote (see picture below). [Image 12]:

Interesting. So possibly an Xml hex character is all you need to bugger votes? Easy peasy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. The World Wide Web Consortium’s XML 1.0 Specification of 1998 and several other related specifications—all of them free open standards—define XML.

So in the “document description”. I wonder if this means that just putting the right character into the ballot description can turn on a “bugger the vote” feature? “Hex” just means a base 16 number describing a character in this case.

Update: A bit on what that Hex value is. It is “white space”:

https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/ff3d9806-b6fa-4ee6-a903-67f919b98d83/hexadecimal-value-0x20-cannot-be-included-

This is the hexadecimal code for the white space you have in “Account Number”. Just use “AccountNumber” instead .
[…]
XML Naming Rules

XML elements must follow these naming rules:
•Names can contain letters, numbers, and other characters
•Names cannot start with a number or punctuation character
•Names cannot start with the letters xml (or XML, or Xml, etc)
•Names cannot contain spaces

Any name can be used, no words are reserved.

So essentially, have your fields in the xml ballot description contain a blank in the middle, the ballot is toasted and the votes go to the Diddle box, it seems…

After some more redactions:

Notably 42 minutes earlier on Nov 21 2020 at 13:53:09 a user attempted to zero out election results. Id:3168 EmsLogger – There is no permission to {0}- Project: User: Thread: 189. This is direct proof of an attempt to tamper with evidence.

So someone remote was trying to remove evidence. Interesting. Suggests not just a local screw-up, but a systems hack by a skilled actor OR the vendor.

Next we again are informed of the law being broken by the software update, and that it happened. But now they include a pointer to where they found the information, in a log file.

9. The Election Event Designer Log shows that Dominion ImageCast Precinct Cards were programmed with updated new programming on 10/23/2020 and again after the election on 11/05/2020. As previously mentioned, this violates the HAVA safe harbor period. Source: C:\Program Files\Dominion Voting Systems\Election Event Designer\Log\Info.txt

• Dominion Imagecast Precinct Cards Programmed with 9/25/2020 programming on 09/29/2020, 09/30/2020, and 10/12/2020.

• Dominion Imagecast Precinct Cards Programmed with New Ballot Programming dated 10/22/2020 on 10/23/2020 and after the election on 11/05/2020

Excerpt from 2020-11-05 showing “ProgramMemoryCard” commands.

Whole lot of programming being changed for a “locked down” system, eh?

Then a line by line on all the information they collected. Mostly just housekeeping and leaving an audit trail on themselves.

10. Analysis is ongoing and updated findings will be submitted as soon as possible. A summary of the information collected is provided below.

  1. Foyle says:

    So many indicators of fraud, both large and small, local and remote. Why are courts and politicians from both sides of the isle so reluctant to allow proper auditing of ballots in contested areas? Seems they are allergic to sunlight.

  2. David A says:

    Wow, this election is impossible to certify anywhere these built fir fraud machines are used. A hand recount and audit of those ballots would certainly give the election to President Trump.

    I see very little hope in anything other then President Trump’s executive order being enacted and enforced with force. The courts are corrupted. The unimaginable consequences of an Obama puppet, China puppet presidency, necessitates President Trump using ALL his Presidential powers as necessary. I hope he knows he will have 80 plus million backers.

  3. A C Osborn says:

    The CEO of Dominion testified that none of this is possible on his machines, they are perfect, unhackable, cannot be connected to the internet, cannot flip votes, are totally sealed and cannot possibly be used for fraud.
    And we all believe him don’t we?
    Well all the Democrats, AGs, FBI, DOJ & CIA and Judges of every level do it seems.

  4. A C Osborn says:

    I forgot they are all also perfectly Certified to the highest possible level.
    The only errors possible are User errors.

  5. cdquarles says:

    That, my friends, is smoking gun expert testimony. It should hold up in court; yet we see ‘judges’ not willing to look. That’s the biggest tell of all, to me. Also, this is one state only and just a couple of locations within that state. Every, and I do mean *EVERY* place this system was used has the rebuttable presumption of fraud having taken place. It is on *them* to show otherwise. Go Rogue Mr. VP Pence and be like Thomas Jefferson. There are rumblings that one R representative from my state intends to contest the EC vote tally. He needs a senator to join him and Shelby punted, so it is on another and Tuberville has made some noise that he just may join Mo Brooks in the contest.

    I note reports that R state representatives in the legislatures in some, if not all of the contested states, have met and nominated republican elector slates; so the contest is *not* over, despite the state run, er, left-wing ‘corporate’ media saying anything otherwise.

  6. A C Osborn says:

    This is interesting, it reports that a recount at Grosse Pointe, Michigan has found that Trump when after it was certified as a Biden win.
    Let’s hope it is true.

  7. Nancy & John Hultquist says:

    Curmudgeon and skeptic here.
    Despite this:
    It seems to me there is good reason to question lots and lots about this election.

    . . . a systems hack by a skilled actor OR the vendor

    This says to me more than a few people would have been participating and a not insignificant amount of money would have to change some bank accounts.
    This can and should be investigated. Will take lots of time.

    Consider the consequences of DJT using, or trying to use, “all Presidential powers” to prevent the Biden/Harris administration from happening.
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.”
    ― Robert Frost

    The first line of Frost’s poem says …
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

    I know what he meant, but today “yellow” means caution.
    I’m for caution, not chaos.
    Focus on the election(s) in 2 years, and the 2024 election.

    Frost again:
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

  8. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    I did some “morning coffee digging” and found what the 0x20 character is, and why it caused ballots to be rejected. It is the space character. I’ve added an update above with details and a link to the explanation.

    Basically you can’t put a space in the NAME of a field in the XML description of the ballot. So whoever enters that description of the ballot layout can cause voted ballots to go to The Diddle Box just by inserting a blank in a field name. Nice hack.

    Search on “XML” in the text to find the update bit.

  9. Jon K says:

    @Nancy & John
    I respect your position as it is one I held for a long time. However, who will be doing the investigations under this upcoming illegal administration? The FBI and others have proved to be complicit with the deep state. There is no equal justice under the law anymore. The examples to this are obvious to everyone reading here and are too numerous to list. Waiting will only further erode our response capabilities and ability to communicate. Rooting out this rot will be painful, but it has to be done now.

  10. Gail Combs says:

    Nancy & John,

    If you wait we will ALREADY be a vassal state of China. Do you really think we will have free and fair elections after this?

    We either fix it NOW or we lose the country forever. It is really that simple.

    We already have censorship we already have unlawful lock-downs and removal of our right to assemble and freedom of movement Biden Inc is planning on packing the Supreme Court. At that point you can say good by to our Second Amendment.

    “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” — Mao Zedong

    >>>>>>>>
    E.M. You have a lot of fans with the ladies I am hanging out with. The very much appreciate this analysis you have done.

  11. President Elect H.R. says:

    Hey! Merry Christmas to you and the hubby, Gail.

    I figured you’ve been reading but nice to see you check in.

  12. David A says:

    If Biden gets the Presidency all resistance to the deep state will be viciously attacked. Socialist , Communist, in league with China, Obama. Seriously, common sense says now or never. From my perspective President Trump using his full authority may be necessary to prevent far worse than riots, which the Fed has the power to stop.

  13. Gail Combs says:

    David A,

    You are correct. CHINA WANTS OUR LAND! They want our farms and our minerals and they want the Constitution and Americans GONE.

    Remember Bill Ayer and his buddies were talking of Re-education camps and wiping-out 25 million (10%) of the US population.
    *https://thenewamerican.com/obamas-friend-ayers-kill-25-million-americans/

    Were did Ayer and his Weathermen friends end up? TEACHING IN COLLEGES. So we now have talk of camps again. We have Castro’s Baby Boy (Trudeau) up north inviting the Chinese Communist Party Army in for war games.
    *https://www.rebelnews.com/people_are_dramatically_underestimating_how_much_of_a_menace_chinese_communists_are

    There was also something I saw in passing about five Chinese military camps (empty) in Mexico. We know the Drug Cartels and the Chinese are working together. We know the Chinese are in Latin America.

    We know Zi HATES Americans
    *https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2014/04/china_picks_at_the_scab_to_keep_the_wound_fresh.html

    We also know that China knows they would not win a conventional war with the USA so they are instead opting for Fourth Generation Warfare AND WINING.
    *https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/aug/3/preventing-fourth-generation-warfare-americas-stre/

    The Election of two Communist Chinese puppets and Chinese controlled Senators and Congressman is all part of that warfare.

  14. cdquarles says:

    Howdy Sis,
    It has been too long since you last commented here; though I am happy to see that you and yours are still doing fine.

  15. Ed Forbes says:

    https://therightscoop.com/breaking-maricopa-county-officials-refuse-to-comply-with-subpoena-of-dominion-machines/

    Maricopa county officials refuse to comply with subpoena of Dominion machines. It is getting interesting.

  16. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    @Ed Forbes:

    Good! Now the Senators can go to court and ask for “discovery” ;-)

    Since the County has now opened a court case, it is all fair game.

  17. The True Nolan says:

    The case for widespread electoral fraud is overwhelming. I honestly do not see how any impartial observer can conclude otherwise. I know I am preaching mostly to the choir, but yes, either this election gets counted honestly, or we never have another chance to fix things. The Democratic Party leaders are hopelessly compromised, a large segment (30%? 60%?) of the Republican Party leaders are equally compromised, our MSM is compromised, a large (very large!) part of the Justice system is compromised, including a huge part of our courts going all the way up to the Supreme Court, and no one even knows where the military stands. Millions of people who support the Constitution and the rule of law have been trying for decades to fix things and every year is worse than the year before. Is there ANY RATIONAL EXPECTATION that the chance of correcting things will be better in the elections of 2022 or 2024? Persuasion has failed. The courts have failed. And now, voting has failed. Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. I hate the idea of military arrests and tribunals. I hate even more the idea of widespread blood in the streets as citizens fight to regain any sort of liberty. But worst of all, I hate the idea of the end of freedom in the US — and we are right at the doorstep of seeing it happen. If this is not fixed in the next month, we are unlikely to see it fixed in our life time.

  18. philjourdan says:

    @EM – I do not know all ascii character numbers, but I do know 0x20 (hex 32). You see it a lot in URLs.

    While the analysis from one section of one state is not proof of fraud in every state, the fact that the evidence clearly shows fraud in the ONLY machines forensically audited means that NO machines can be trusted until all are audited. But sadly, the courts refuse to order it (I worry about the life expectancy of the one who did).

    But while it is evidence in a court of law, it is not proof that all are like that, so no way to know for sure. But it is STRONG evidence. Which any honest court would then demand the impounding of all machines and the same analysis be done.

    That is not happening. Because they know the results, and are afraid it would tear the country apart. Thinking the Trump supporters are not the thugs of Antifa and BLM.

    And in some respects they are correct. But the war has just begun. And it is a war. A war of freedom versus tyranny. TO do nothing means we succumb to tyranny. And over half the population is not ready to do that.

  19. Gail Combs says:

    cdquarles,

    I have been busy sharing the information I picked up here and at Tony Heller’s with a different set of folks. Most of what I can bring to the conversation is new to them so I figure that is where I should be spending my time online. In general they are not of a scientific bent. We have a professional singer, teachers, artists, writers, several grandmas… They are also not all that good at digging out information. However they are on Twatter and Farce book so the information spreads.

    BTW, the group was very sad to hear of Larry’s passing last spring.

  20. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    @The True Nolan:

    I see a fairly simple, and getting simpler, “path tree”. Few paths left.

    1) Courts ACTUALLY get off their cowardly butts and listen to the cases, see the Big Steal, and “fix it”.

    2) Failing that (and presently it is failing badly). Legislatures (and I’m not sure exactly which ones or in what combination) actually get off their cowardly butts and cancel the present electors, put forward the alternate Trump electors, and “fix it”. Given the “leader” of the US Senate is saying ~”Forget Trump, move along” and the House is 100% on the side of Beijing Biden, I don’t see this happening at the Federal Level.

    3) “Somehow” with all the suits in courts, this ends up a “Contingent Election”. Highly unlikely, IMHO, as the screeching about the “Electors have voted” will be very strong. But possible. I just don’t know enough about the “rules” for “contingent” to call it. Perhaps the Real Kraken evidence or the “always hopeful” cases in the news tip the scales and cause this path to wake up.

    4) Trump must “Do The Deed” and announce the fraudulent election, display enough blatant evidence to be convincing enough, and “call out the troops”. Basically the Foreign Interference EO path. Announce a “do-over” all paper only, with ID, hand count, under cameras and broadcast, each counting spot to have one counter, one Dem and one Repub auditor. (Or, alternatively, a nation wide “Forensic Audit” of the election IF that can be figured out in a way that will catch the fake ballots stuffed into piles and the illegal voters.) “Troops” to be any necessary combination of “US Military – all branches”, Nationalized National Guard, Civilian Militia (under orders of ‘regular military’ officers).

    I don’t see any other alternatives. Though each of those will have further sub-branches / choices.

    I’m not really looking forward to packing up the car with my Cammo Hunting Suit, Carbine, and box of ammo, then driving into East Coast Winter; but if POTUS calls, I’ll likely go. (Though first I’d suggest my highest and best use would be in telecom, osint, sigint, computing, and forensics… “will hack for pizza and beer” ;-)

    It might “clarify the minds” of the swamp creatures in the Senate, House, SCOTUS, and various agencies to see a few Million Man Armies standing up and surrounding the White House, facing out.

    We have about 4 weeks before these all become untenable, IMHO.

    Anyone who sees any other workable path, please point it out, as I really don’t like this set, and having Red China with Puppet Usurper Joe in charge and Socialism-R-Us Kamala on deck is never going to work out well.

    philjourdan says:
    “…..And it is a war. A war of freedom versus tyranny. TO do nothing means we succumb to tyranny. And over half the population is not ready to do that.”

    The group I am following have Grannys openly talking about what they can contribute to that war. This is a very Christian group of mainly older women so you know it is getting bad.

    Unfortunately a fight between the Liberals and Conservatives is JUST what Soros wants. aka The Purple Revolution. It then allows the Canadians and their pals the Chinese and the UN to occupy the USA to ‘keep the peace’ and you KNOW Biden would be very happy to invite them in.

    Canada, U.S. Agree To Use Each Other’s Troops In Civil Emergencies
    David Pugliese,
    Canwest News Service,
    February 22, 2008.
    Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other’s borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.

    Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.

    The U.S. military’s Northern Command, however, publicized the agreement with a statement outlining how its top officer, Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency….”

  22. Gail Combs says:

    E.M.
    Be aware the US armed forces can not conduct the election.
    18 U.S. Code § 592.Troops at polls

    Whoever, being an officer of the Army or Navy, or other person in the civil, military, or naval service of the United States, orders, brings, keeps, or has under his authority or control any troops or armed men at any place where a general or special election is held, unless such force be necessary to repel armed enemies of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both; and be disqualified from holding any office of honor, profit, or trust under the United States….

    E.M. If you do have to come east Galloping Camel and I are in the Raleigh NC area so can get together for the ride up to DC.🤣

  23. philjourdan says:

    @Gail – Chinese? Perhaps. Canadians? Sorry not that many Wheel of Fortunes! But an outside attempt to control us would peel off the 30% of the idiots who follow the left (leaving the Hillary 10%) and that foreign power would find they are outnumbered, even 1+billion of them.

    The strength of the left is in making their idiots believe they are in control. China invades, and that myth goes away for all but the true idiots.

    I hope they try it. Pearl harbor will look like a toy boat game.

  24. President Elect H.R. says:

    @philjourdan re Chinese or U.N. troops: That’s the difference between a civil war and an invasion of foreign troops.

    It’s hard to figure out who to shoot in a civil war. What; do you shoot your neighbor because of the sign that was in their front yard in the Fall?

    With foreign troops on our soil, it becomes a lot easier to figure out where to point and shoot.

    I could be wrong, but I would think that the GEBs have figured that out…. unless they are counting on disarming the U.S. first.

  25. Gail Combs says:

    Oh I am sure the Biden Team has confiscating guns on the top of the list. Remember they want to pack the Supreme Court too.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) suggests a gun confiscation law is the solution for mass shootings in the U.S.
    They have recently been pushing “Red-flag” laws were an anti-gun liberal neighbor, an angry ex-spouse, can make a “complaint” and get your guns confiscated WITHOUT a trial or just cause. For example, a 61-year-old man was shot dead by an officer trying to enforce Maryland’s new ‘red flag’ law. I think it was his sister that made the complaint. In that county there were 160 red flag orders in the first year.

  26. President Elect H.R. says:

    @Gail – People with legacy firearms need to start their planning now.

    Sure, the gub’mint isn’t supposed to keep a list of the people who got a background check when buying a gun, but anyone who believes some TLA or other didn’t just make and keep a list anyhow, despite the law, is in for a surprise.

    Those people will be the first to get a visit and while the brown shirts are there, I’m sure they will also conduct a thorough search for legacy firearms. Plan accordingly.

  27. The True Nolan says:

    Hey VP Elect Smith! You do a good job of laying out the paths — but I think that 1, 2 and 3 are becoming increasingly unlikely with each passing day. And path 4? I have no way of assigning probability to that one. IF (big “if”) Trump were the darling golden boy of the Republican Party, I would be much happier, but it looks like a LOT of the Repubs want him out.

    I do not see any peaceful resolution available, and unfortunately only one or two possibilities which might include a continuance of the basic human natural freedoms and rights. I could say “but who knows? Maybe Biden would make a GREAT President!” and be all cheery — but the clear facts are that we are looking at a criminal gang pretending to be politicians, judges, and governmental servants. They are very, VERY close to controlling the most powerful weapon ever created.

  28. The True Nolan says:

    Hey Gail! “Be aware the US armed forces can not conduct the election.”

    I really hope that I can say this without sounding snarky, because I have huge respect for you, for the depth of your research, and for your thoughts, but… “where on earth have you been for the last 60 years?!”

    We are currently well past the time when the rule of law had any pragmatic meaning. Yes, I know, there is a sort of kabuki performance where people take claims before the courts and the judges pretend to interpret and command obedience to the law, but it is almost universally theater instead of justice. For a small example, exactly which of the tens of thousands of firearm “laws” currently being enforced are in accordance with the Constitution of the US?

    There is an old joke about the inveterate gambler who tells his friend about his recent big loss at the local gambling establishment. The friend responds, “you KNOW that place is crooked! Every game they have is RIGGED! Why do you go there?!” The reply, of course, is “Well, it’s the only game in town!”

    Put simply, the game is rigged. Not just a little here and there, but massively rigged. Rigged from the bottom all the way to the top. If you play a game where the dealer gets to make and change the rules at whim, but where YOU have to follow the rules 100%, I guarantee you will lose. It is very possible that even Trump is part of the rigging. I can’t say. We may well find out very soon, but if it turns out that he is NOT part of the scam, I will not be upset if he breaks the rigged rules, just as long as he gets rid of the known criminals currently in charge.

    Dangerous, yes, I agree. VERY dangerous. The question is, what alternative gives us a better chance for liberty?

  29. The True Nolan says:

    Info regarding redacted portion of the Dominion report:

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/redacted-information-in-dominion-audit-report-shows-races-were-flipped-analyst_3625228.html?utm_source=newsnoe&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2020-12-19-1

    “The analyst who led the forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems in Michigan said on Friday the information state officials pushed to redact shows that the outcomes of races were changed.”

    “The original report had log evidence that we published in the report to show exactly what we did and exactly the findings. Now, those did ultimately get redacted. And so now, the complaint is ‘well, but there’s no real proof and Dominion says ‘no, these things can’t be done,’” Russell Ramsland Jr. said during a virtual appearance on Newsmax’s “Greg Kelly Reports.”

    “But at that point, Dominion’s argument is no longer with us. Dominion’s argument is with their own user’s manual and their own logs, because the logs—had they been able to be published—show very clearly that the RCV [ranked-choice voting] algorithm was enacted. It shows very clearly that the error messages were massive. It was very clearly [sic] that races were flipped,” he added.”

  30. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    FWIW, I would not expect, not propose, that the Military run the elections. I would see them as “assuring peace, orderliness, and doing QA”, with others running the election being from the Executive Branch somewhere. Perhaps the County Sheriffs… for some odd reason I tend to trust them. Plus, they know how to manage criminals…

  31. The True Nolan says:

    @ VP Elect Smith: “I would not expect, not propose, that the Military run the elections. I would see them as “assuring peace, orderliness, and doing QA”, with others running the election being from the Executive Branch somewhere. Perhaps the County Sheriffs… ”

    Much more acceptable to me as well. Of course, no matter how such an event was handled there would almost certainly be legalities broken, disputed, or argued over. Our current legal system is (in my opinion) DESIGNED to be unclear, uncertain, ambiguous, and capable of being (mis)interpreted by the professions. The same way the tax code is done… and for the same reason.

    @Gail and President Elect H.R. – Yes, gun confiscation is first. But that will not work. Once that starts, the war does begin. Democrats have never made a secret of their contempt for a free citizenry which is what the 2nd amendment is all about.

    I would propose, in a show of unity, every democrat turn in any gun they own (and there are a lot that own them) and also fire all security forces they have hired, including secret service. After a year of that, then talk to us about taking our guns. The good part will be, there will be a lot less of them to talk to. (especially in Chicago).

    @The True Nolan:
    That link per the redactions has triggered a bit of an Ah Ha! moment.

    It explains why there were MORE votes in the middle run.

    3 Nov: BOTH the Ballot Bump to Diddle Box AND the Fractional Voting Bump were running, BUT since the votes went to “Adjudication” they did not get the fractional bump. Hand sorted to Biden by poll worker.

    6 Nov: Ballot Bump “configuration” changed, no votes to Diddle Box, so Trump gets all his votes. BUT, the Fractional Voting Bump was still on. Sent votes to Biden AND made total votes higher. (Too high to match hand count).

    21 Nov: Forensic Audit Run. Ballot Bump to Diddle Box OFF, Biden Fractional increase turned off too: Now total count matches real ballots, Trump win is the same votes, but Biden votes are lower by the Fractional Diddle setting.

    Now it’s starting to make a whole lot more sense. From this we ought to be able to figure the fraction they used.

    Date   Total  Biden Trump 3rd Party Total POTUS votes
    Nov 3  16,047 7,769 4,509 145       12,423
    Nov 5  18,059 7,289 9,783 255       17,327
    Nov 21 16,044 5,960 9,748 241       15,949
    

    Potus vote increased from 15,949 to 17,327 or 1378. Biden got 1329 more. VERY close numbers. 7289/5960= 1.22 That implies the fractional “lift” programmed in for Biden votes was about 20% to 25% added. A “comfortable margin” that wasn’t enough.

    So my “scenario” would be that 3 Nov they had the poll book count of votes and were busy hand sorting all the machine Diddle Box votes, so had to toss some Trump Votes to keep the total right (giving Trump only 4,509, but Biden about right for the expected Diddle and making the total votes right).

    Then 6 Nov. they have to fix the XML config issue as 68% Diddle Box caused folks to start shouting holy hell. The then rerun the ballots. Oh oh… Forgot to set the ‘decrease Trump’ knob and now total votes are Way Off and suspicious.

    Finally, the 21 Nov forensic audit run, everything has to be set “right”, and they get total votes about the same as poll book (some damage in handling I’d guess. Those 3 they mentioned in the audit) And while total Trump vote doesn’t change, Biden vote takes a huge hit as the 1.22 x factor is not operating.

    Suddenly the numbers all make sense.

    SO, what I’d look for, is that 1.22 x “uplift” setting for Biden in other precincts / States / etc. AND any variation in software run in “tight races” and “swing States” vs not. IF they were “smart” about it, and only did the Diddle of Software where it would help, you will find two very different sets of settings of that fractional voting knob.

    Perhaps more cogent then the military running elections would be the military confiscating all Dominion machines and ballots, and doing an audit of each.

    The question is with clear foreign interference, can President Trump’s executive order allow this?

  35. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    @David A:

    I think it does as it says anyone involved can have their assets seized and IIRC the Dominion machines are not owned by the governments but remain property of Dominion (so as a fee for service).

    The Oath of Office also requires POTUS to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and IMHO, a corrupt election stealing the POTUS job is exactly that. The constitution says WE get to chose, not the vote diddlers. So yeah.

  36. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    Or, perhaps more succinctly, Dominion is a foreign company. Dominion hardware and software are shown to be corrupting and interfering with the election therefore it can be confiscated as foreign interference.

  37. Steven Fraser says:

    @EM: I appreciate your thorough meta-analysis of the forensic audit results. Both confirm what I suspected, which is the system had everything wrong that can be wrong, completely noncompliant with law, regulation and common sense sys admin operational practices.

    That a system can be diddled by insertion of a space in a XML element name is incomprehensible to me. IMO, any system using XML has to enforce its encoding rules, especially the ‘reserved character’, hex 20, ascii 32 “space” preclusion. Such software should simply not come up into operation if the structure is unparsable.

    Anyway, on a related topic of ‘invalid election materials”, have you seen the recent articles about the statewide invalidity of ballots in California, as mentioned in https://uncoverdc.com/2020/12/17/california-clearly-violated-election-law-votes-are-invalid/
    ? I am interested in your perspective as a Californian.

    Keep up the good work. It is very much appreciated!

  38. David A says:

    Thanks E.M. I hope you are correct.

    If these numbers are accurate, then the massive fraud is incontrovertible.

    @Steven Fraser says:
    One of those things I have learned in my 74 years is that , People in government are either woefully ignorant about the law or deliberately ignore it. When I was the head of a city agency, State and Federal lawyers explained to me what I/We could or could not do according to the laws involved. Then they told us that we could actually do in practice. As long as we did not accept Bribes for our decisions, we could do anything we wanted with NO PERSONAL LIABILITY. and the local judicial system could be counted on to enforce those decisions Against the citizens legal rights. Most citizens will give up and surrender their rights because you can’t fight City Hall and win. Even if a citizen wins after lengthy and expensive fight they have lost, and the Bureaucrat goes home to his job and retirement with no personal consequence.

    By legal definition Government employees are Mentally Incompetent, Neither they or their Agency can be held liable for their actions.

    In the early days of the republic, this was not the case. Politicians and bureaucrats were treated like citizens and by Constitutional Law that must be the case, But over the years through judicial action and legislation they have carved out protection for themselves. They are now a protected class…pg

    @Steven Fraser:

    As a Californian my perspective is:

    “Yeah? So? And?…”

    We’ve already established that the “Lawyers In Black Robes” ( I find it hard to call them Judges, Justices, or “Your Honor” anymore, just LIB-Robs…) have zero interest in doing ANYTHING that might cause some of the public to make their life uncomfortable. Besides, they all know “Orange Man Bad”, so why look at any case that might help him?

    We’ve already established that whatever the degree of fraud, the Courts have zero desire to hold an election in suspension while they figure out how to fix or re-run it.

    We’ve already established that the “Rule Of Law” no longer applies and the “Rule Of What Feels Good” is all that matters. We’ve further established that while we still do not have the “Rule Of A Man” (dictator, emperor, king, whatever) do do have “Rule Of The Mob” – be that mob Antifa or BLM in the streets, or the DNC running amok in the vote counting rooms, of the LIB-ROBs destroying the legal system.

    We’ve also established that the only punishments handed out will be to the Deplorables and Lower Caste of our Caste System. No-one of Rank need ever worry, as long as they kiss the PC Ring.

    I long ago stopped thinking MY vote in California would have any impact at all on either the State government or the Federal By Proxy POTUS vote. (Sometimes it may have a tiny impact on State Propositions and a few local elections). Given that, why ought I care AT ALL that the ballot was bogus? Toss it, my vote did not diminish from zero importance to negative. It is just as “valuable” as ever… Keep it, my vote still is worthless and has no impact on the POTUS choice.

    Why should I care, one way or the other? I don’t.

    Now, as a Trump Supporter, I’d love to see California tossed for being incompetent a-holes. Frankly, I’d like to see that even if Biden still (somehow) got the win. Just to hear the screams of the GEBs in the State Capitol.

    I’m ready to have it out in a nice big fat fight. Goring their Ox is a nice start on making that feeling abate.

  41. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    @David A:

    What is missing from his math is “What is the total of the poll books?” I.e. how many people actually voted? There were a huge number of “out of balance” precincts and that was just ignored. Add up the votes counted as polled, and compare that to the total votes for POTUS.

    For the analysis in the link, all a Dim has to do is say “more than 66% voted, it was 86%, people hated Trump that much.” (Or whatever number balances). That’s the claim that must be refuted and the Gatway Pundit just assumed it away.

    But I like their thinking. It is a big example of how to find where to look, even if it isn’t hard proof of anything much.

  42. The True Nolan says:

    @ V.P. Elect Smith Very interesting ideas on why the vote totals changed the way they did. Very plausible, and exactly the sort of thing that might happen in the real world. Thanks for the scenario!

  43. David A says:

    On the Gateway article they may have conflated “Registered voters” with “eligible via age” voters, so the percentage, if off of all citizens over 18, would be a much higher base.

    Personally I find “The Gateway Pundit”, to often be over the top on their headlines with the articles depth often lacking and not quite supporting the headline. Yet a good source to scan for “dig deeper” stories.

  44. Frank says:

    David A: These days, turnout is usually calculated using in “Voting Eligible Population” calculated by subtracting a non-resident immigrants, prisoners, felons and others who can’t vote from the “Voting Age Population” determined by the Census.

    The concept of a Number of Registered Votes is problematic these days: Some states permit registration on Election Day, the number of registered voters is constantly changing, and there is no uniform system used by all states for reporting the number of registered votes. States can legally purge their voter rolls of anyone who hasn’t voted in the last two Presidential Elections, but don’t follow a standard practice when doing so. (Stacey Abrams made herself famous by claiming Kemp stole the Georgia governor’s election when the Republican SoS legally purged the voter rolls). When you move to a new state or a difference district in the same state or die, your name SHOULD be removed from the list of registered voters in your old district, but the information doesn’t arrive, or isn’t acted upon, especially when two people have the same name and similar addresses. These problems allow a few people fraudulent vote for dead people or people who have moved away using absentee ballots, but this small problem had no impact on the 2020 elections.

    For example, the pandemic induced Nevada to become the eight state voting exclusively by mail. Trump screamed that this was done solely to increase the opportunity for fraud that would steal the election from him. In reality, Nevadans cast 24.9% more votes in 2020 than 2016 and lost by the same 2.4%. In demographically similar Arizona, the number of votes cast increased by 32%, but Trump’s share of the vote declined by 3.9%. If increased absentee voting produced more fraud, the biggest opportunity for more fraud was in Nevada and it helped Trump.

    There was also a massive increase and shift in Georgia (22% increase, 5.4% shift) where they recently purged their roles of voters and use election verification of signatures on absentee ballots to minimize fraud. Texas showed a similar increase in voting and shift away from Trump (26% increase in votes, 3.5% shift), but it wasn’t big enough to cost him the state. On the other hand, WI and PA had relatively small increases in voting (13% and 11%) and shifts in voting (1.9% and 1.4%) big enough to flip these states to Biden and guaranteeing that Trump would lose in the Electoral College no matter what happened in GA or AZ.

    Trump lost popular vote by 2% in 2016, but won in the Electoral College by winning four states by less than 1.2% (FL, PA, MI and WI, worth 95 Electoral Votes). In 2020, Trump lost the popular vote by 4.5%, more than Romney, Kerry, Gore, Ford, Nixon 1960, and HRC), but his supporters think the reason must have been fraud. Demographic, however, show Trump lost the election in suburbs of key states, not the Democrat-controlled big cities where Trump tended to do better than in 2016.
