EQNEEDF’s 2020 Elections Comments

 

What protections do the American People have against a President influenced by foreign entities or powers and or foreign entities manipulating or involvement in providing voting counting machines technologies and services to counties, cities and states in the polling areas? November 24, 2020; By Bruce Wayne Henion

 

“Because of Article II of the Constitution, both the emoluments clause and congressional impeachment powers laid out in Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution, the founders believed they had a two-pronged attack against foreign influence.

 

Article II of the Constitution gives such power to the president to run the executive branch that a president under the influence of a foreign nation would be far more dangerous than any other single individual,” says Stephen Saltzburg, professor at The George Washington University Law School. “That kind of conflict, between loyalty to the United States and loyalty to a foreign nation, would be intolerable.”

 

Two Key Provisions Protect Against

.

To guard against such conflicts and provide a remedy for a worst-case scenario of presidential corruption, the founders built two key provisions into the Constitution: the so-called “emoluments clause” and the power to impeach a president.

 

The emoluments clause is laid out in Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution: “And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.”

 

No gifts, no titles of nobility—the Constitution bars American presidents, ambassadors and elected representatives from even the appearance of quid pro quo. But several members of the Constitutional Convention argued this clause alone wasn’t enough to hedge against corruption of the highest office in the nation. Congress needed a remedy, a way to punish a president who crossed the line.

 

By including both the emoluments clause and congressional impeachment powers in the Constitution, the founders believed they had a two-pronged attack against foreign influence. As Edmund Jennings Randolph said at the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788, “It is impossible to guard better against corruption” (Ref. The Founding Fathers Feared Foreign Influence—And Devised Protections Against It - Dave Roos - Dec 5, 201).

https://www.history.com/news/foreign-influence-constitution-founding-fathers

 

Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution worried about a President influenced by foreign powers, an allegation made against presumably President elect Biden, and his brother and son, profiting from influence pedaling while Biden was Vice President and intimate financial ties to Ukraine, Russia and China.

 

Yet while the founders believed they had a two-pronged attack against foreign influence in the highest office of government, Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution, the Bill did not address influence by foreign powers in our elections.

 

To address influence by foreign powers in our elections by the House and Senate Congressional Representatives, Title 18, United States Code, to prohibit interfering in elections with agents of a foreign government and amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to clarify the obligation to report acts of foreign election influence and require implementation of compliance and reporting systems by Federal campaigns to detect and report such acts were in acted.

 

As the internet grew in the 90”s to 2019, it became evident that due to technology, acts of foreign influence in U. S. elections had become a grave concern during the 2016 Elections, so Congressional Representatives re-enforced existing laws by creating:

 

S. 1469 and H.R.4617 Bills at present replaced Title 18, United States Code, to prohibit interfering in elections with agents of a foreign government and amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971

 

S. 1469 Bill amends title 18, United States Code, to prohibit interfering in elections with agents of a foreign government. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE. This Act may be cited as the ``Prevention of Foreign Interference with Elections Act of 2019''.

 

The Committee on House Administration, to whom was referred the bill (H.R. 4617) to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to clarify the obligation to report acts of foreign election influence and require implementation of compliance and reporting systems by Federal campaigns to detect and report such acts, and for other purposes, having considered the same, report favorably thereon with an amendment and recommend that the bill as amended do pass.

 

S. 1469 and H.R.4617 Bills that address foreign involvement follow the end of this article.

 

Sidney Powell told us they have a witness, a high ranking military officer who observed first hand Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems capabilities used in foreign countries, specifically Venezuela President elect Chaves elections to keep him in office.

 

Why wouldn’t the FBI or CIA know about this?

 

“Since the election, Ms. Powell has advanced claims of voluminous voter fraud and a rigged election. She falsely claimed that a supercomputer called Hammer hacked votes, that Mr. Trump won the election by “millions of votes” and that voting software company Dominion Voting Systems altered the tallies. Previous claims that Smartmatic’s voting machines were rigged in Venezuela have been disputed and are “unsubstantiated,” according to The Associated Press. The official also claimed to Ms. Powell that voting machines display and print out a paper ballot showing the results the voter intended, while the software itself “changes the information electronically.” But Dominion claims their system does not work like that” (Ref. New York Times Article; How Sidney Powell inaccurately cited Venezuela’s elections as evidence of U.S. fraud. Nov. 19, 2020, 10:00 a.m. ET, Nov. 19, 2020, By Linda Qiu).

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/19/technology/sidney-powell-venezuela.html%20-%20after-bottom

 

Audit finds no fraud in Chávez win

 

“An audit by international observers supported official election results that gave President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela victory in a referendum to recall him, the secretary general of the Organisation of American States said.

 

Although observers such as the former US president Jimmy Carter and the OAS secretary general, César Gaviria, endorsed the election council's results for the August 15 vote, they proposed the audit to assuage the opposition's concerns of vote fraud.

 

However, the opposition refused to participate in the audit, saying they did not believe the methodology was capable of detecting fraud.

 

Mr Gaviria said: "In our opinion, the type of check used in this audit of the electronic system doesn't leave us much doubt regarding the result.

 

"It's evident that the opposition has huge doubts regarding the results. We cannot say categorically there was not fraud; we are saying we didn't find it."

 

Mr Chávez trounced his enemies by capturing 59% of the vote.

 

Venezuelan election authorities and international observers from the OAS and Atlanta-based Carter Centre, began inspecting ballots from 150 voting stations last Thursday” (Ref. World news - Audit finds no fraud in Chávez win, AP in Caracas, Mon 23 Aug 2004 23.59 BST).

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/aug/23/venezuela

 

It’s worth noting that “Smartmatic accused the Venezuelan govern of election fraud in 2017, pointing out that its machines were used when the opposition party won a majority in the country’s National Assembly in 2015” (Ref. New York Times Article; How Sidney Powell inaccurately cited Venezuela’s elections as evidence of U.S. fraud. Nov. 19, 2020, 10:00 a.m. ET, Nov. 19, 2020, By Linda Qiu).

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/19/technology/sidney-powell-venezuela.html%20-%20after-bottom

 

Smartmatic pointing out that its machines have capabilities that can change the results of a Presidential Election. We don’t know the content of the unsubstantiated evidences that Smartmatic’s voting machines were not rigged in Venezuela.

 

I’ve left the article intact to illustrate along with statements from Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems to illuminate the huge hurdle in front of Sidney Powell who says a epic law suit is coming.

 

President Reelect’s Legal Team and Sidney Powell were together when she made allegations about Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems. Trump tweeted she was on the team but than Rudy Juliana who also early made a statement leading us to believe she was on the team, said she wasn’t, than Powell made a statement clearing up the matter saying she’s just going after fraud no matter where she finds it..

 

“The official she cited also said that Dominion’s system was “a descendant” of Smartmatic’s system, that they “did business together” and that Mr. Biden had overtaken Mr. Trump only when “vote counting was stopped”” (Ref. World news - Audit finds no fraud in Chávez win, AP in Caracas, Mon 23 Aug 2004 23.59 BST). https://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/aug/23/venezuela

 

A large portion of U. S. Registered Voters are waiting to see what happens with the law suits in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada.

 

At least half Americans feel the 2020 elections for President was manipulated in many different ways, due to law suits filed by President Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team and allegations by the President and his team.

 

Now, because of Sidney Powell, the capabilities of Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems have come to the attention of everyone, i.e., remote access, usb memory ports where memory chips with applications that can change votes; bringing into question, Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems creditability and whether or not influence of a foreign entity in our elections in a coordinated effort took place.

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems products and services and denials of interference of U. S. Election Statements are included in my report.

 

Could Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems machines without their involvement be tampered with using their highly advanced voting counting systems purchased by U. S. States?

 

These systems have auditable capabilities yet do they verify name and signatures with scan copies archived.

 

Smartmatic’s web site shows a screenshot with multiply photo identifications reordered.

 

Dominion Voting Systems is a foreign entity and like Smartmatic, no doubt have intellectual ownership of the hardware replacement parts, software, programs and applications of their voting ballot counting systems.

 

Smartmatic has remote control access to their voting counting systems using the internet and or any other entity could as well,

 

Dominion Voting Systems are not presented as having remote access, yet their products involve interaction with a computer, monitor, mouse and key board, usb memory port for memory chips with application that allows votes to be changed by the hundred’s of thousands was not advertise as a feature of Dominion Voting Systems, yet every computer has usb memory ports.

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems have been reported as being used in the 2016 elections as well.

 

The proof of such allegations is on Sidney Powell and or President Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team to provide to federal court, although President Trump has no active law suits in the states that use Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems.

 

Pursuing a law suit against unknown democrats, socialist, co-conspirators, state and county officials, poll supervisors, ballot counters, Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems who all, in a coordinated effort allegedly stole the U. S. Presidential Election from President Trump, doesn’t seem to me to be a win, win scenario, especially if your only witness is a whistle blower about something that happened a long time ago in another country, so as to suggest it could have happened in the 2020 Elections with out further evidence, will be seen as a false narrative.

 

Remember, our entire election process is under fire, the integrity of the voting ballot counting process is being debated, alleged by a standing President and his Reelect for President Campaign Legal Team, that their was a coordinated attempt to steal the election as a result of fraud in various means. Rudy Juliana said you’d have to be a fool not to see it.

 

Ok, when I heard that my level of trust in our election system went from, wow, to no way, it’s not possible. With Sidney Powell’s I’m not with President Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team and Rudy Julian’s statement, I’m lead to believe Rudy believes in Sidney Powell’s allegations.

 

I’m pretty busy these days, creating content for Energy Quest Search, continually up dating my navy web sites and others, creating books and publishing them, in addition to therapy and exercise due to being a Quadriplegic and staying informed, while taking Partner With Anthony training course offered by Anthony Morrison. https://mcrmgo.com/go/gopwa/56704

 

So I don’t have the time Sidney Powell has or the resources to investigate these allegations she’s making past this report, yet I will follow up on breaking news regarding said same and post on my web site follow up.

 

Ok, let’s see who and what Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems provide to the ballot counting process for our elections and what the say about these allegations.

 

Smartmatic

 

“Smartmatic is the global leader in secure, accessible, transparen election technology & support services. We believe in equality and justice for all.

Smartmatic's response to misinformation - 11/14/2020

 

In the aftermath of the 2020 general election, there has been a great deal of misinformation being circulated about Smartmatic and other companies that provide election technology to voting jurisdictions in the US. We would like to dispel these incorrect statements with facts.

 

Smartmatic has never owned any shares or had any financial stake in Dominion Voting Systems. Smartmatic has never provided Dominion Voting Systems with any software, hardware or other technology. The two companies are competitors in the marketplace.

 

Smartmatic does not have any ties to any governments or political parties in any country. It has never been owned, funded or backed by any government.

A comprehensive list of facts about Smartmatic is available to the public on our website at www.smartmatic.com/us/smartmatic-fact-checked.

Smartmatic's online voting expert on CNBC – 09/24/2020

 

United States - September 25, 2020 - Smartmatic's Head of Online Voting Michael Summers was interviewed on CNBC for the video Why the US doesn't vote online.

 

In the video, published on September 23, Summers explains the many benefits this form of remote voting presents, the challenges it faces and the reasons why the US is yet to adopt it nationwide. https://www.smartmatic.com/media/article/smartmatic-s-online-voting-expert-on-cnbc

 

NOTE WORTHLY – Smartmatic' Full Range of Services and Capabilities

 

Manual Elections

Poll Worker Support

Election Deployment & Support Services

 

Three places in the U. S. reported but their may be more. Worth investigating for the purpose of knowing, for those of us that feel hand counting of ballots while being allowed to observe signature on secret ballots before opening envelopes, obtaining each name by scanning would be necessary to cross reference ballots being mailed out to registered voters.

 

Smartmatic feels they have been falsely accused and it will take a whistle blower, their statement disclosed, before anyone will know what it’s all about, yet you can’t deny Smartmatic’s impressive technology and services.

 

Again, her I feel Manual Elections; Voter Management; Election Management Platform; Poll Worker Support and Election Deployment & Support Services could over whelming be supported with out any of the remote voting applications.

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems offer similar services, while Dominion Voting Systems states that Claims about software updates being done the night before Election Day are 100% false.  Our voting systems are designed and certified by the U.S. government to be closed and do not rely on network connectivity.”

It also includes states that Trump won, such as Louisiana, Iowa, Missouri and Ohio. At the time of publication Trump had filed lawsuits in five states: Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. The Trump campaign said it would seek a recount in Wisconsin but has not yet filed a lawsuit there.

Remember, were after the truth, yet the truth is some times hidden and until we know the entire truth were left with investigative reporting and opinions. Yet the truth allows us to render our own decisions about things that affect our nation’s political future, i.e., a Republic guided by rules of democracy that up holds free speech, right to bear arms, innocent until proven guilty, right to be bailed out of jail, liberties and freedoms eroding from our very eyes while we endure censorship of the truth, making it impossible for folks to choose a candidate for President based on facts not reported to us by the media regarding Hunter Biden’s FBI Corruption Case and the U. S. Senate Hearing, while Hunter’s laptop is the center of focus in regards to evidences that could link his father to receiving monetary compensation as a result of Hunter’s involvement with a 1. Billion dollar management fund from China he managed, and owns 10% of the funds equity.

 

These are not allegations, there historical facts now. U. S. Citizens often vote due to party affiliation or emotions, as well as candidate like ability, so it’s essential for twitter, faceook and google not to censor information as the media does by not reporting information or investigations by the FBI into the Biden Family’s alleged corruption.

 

As I continue to deliver the truth in regards to 2020 election Fraud and coordinated effort to change votes alleged by President Trump and his re-election Campaign Legal Team, as a result of such allegations, two seemingly regulated entities have come under fire as being either the originator or coconspirator to interfere in 2020 U. S. Elections Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) presence in U. S. Elections, a foreign entity, expects to increase their present involvement at present of 40%.

 

Texas Rejected Use of Dominion Voting System Software Due to Efficiency Issues

 

“Evaluations show Texas officials had concerns about Dominion Voting Systems product's efficiency and reliability when they rejected their use in January of this year.

 

Texas has three times rejected use of ballot counting software from the company Dominion Voting Systems (DVS), according to a report from the Secretary of State’s (SOS) office dated January of this year.

 

The report of review for the latest software, “Democracy Suite 5.5-A,” by Deputy Secretary of State Jose Esparza states, “Specifically, the examiner reports raise concerns about whether the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system is suitable for its intended purpose; operates efficiently and accurately; and is safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation.”

 

DVS is a company that deals in elections software and hardware. It’s come under fire, most notably by President Donald Trump, for irregularities in its vote reporting” (Ref. Texas Rejected Use of Dominion Voting System Software Due to Efficiency Issues, Brad Johnson - November 19, 2020).

https://thetexan.news/texas-rejected-use-of-dominion-voting-system-software-due-to-efficiency-issues

 

FDominion software was not used only in states where Trump is filing lawsuits 

 

“The Dominion Voting website shows that the company has customers in 28 states ( www.dominionvoting.com/about/ ). This includes the six states highlighted in the social media posts.  

 

Reuters recently debunked other false claims that Dominion Voting Systems software “glitched” the election in favour of Biden” (Ref. Fact check: Dominion software was not used only in states where Trump is filing lawsuits, By Reuters Staff, Reuters). https://www.reuters.com/fact-check/about

 

Our Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.

https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-dominion-software-trump-law-idUSKBN27S2Z9

 

It’s not my intention to post every media out lets take on who our President Elect is or if the election was conducted with out Fraud, or if there was a coordinated effort among state officials, ballot counter supervisors, directors or folks counting votes.

 

I’m merely reporting the truth so you can decide whether Dominion Voting Systems, a foreign entity operating out of Colorado and Toronto, Canada violates S. 1469 and H.R.4617 Bills, recognizing the two Bills as replacing Title 18, United States Code, to prohibit interfering in elections with agents of a foreign government and amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to clarify the obligation to report acts of foreign election influence and require implementation of compliance and reporting systems by Federal campaigns to detect and report such acts were in acted. Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution, is the Bill that did not address influence by foreign powers in our elections.

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems business reputations are on the line and the loss of future business could happen if the public looses trust in their voting systems.

 

So far we have reviewed Smartmatic products and services and statements and they seem to be operating in the U. S. as a U. S. Business out of Florida.

I’m a fan of no foreign election influence or involvement in our elections in any way shape or form, be it machines with systems that count ballots, that need services and management follow up to remote inter net interaction. Machines with systems with such capabilities should not be in polling areas.

As I did with Smartmatic, I’ll begin with Dominion Voting Systems History and than products and statements denouncing allegations that President Trump and Trump reelect Campaign Legal Team made against Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems in regards to voter interference in the 2020 elections.

Full auditing capabilities are offered by Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems, yet would the audit include signature and name cross reference to voter registration and ballots mailed out?

 

Were the signatures on the secret envelopes scanned? They could be using any copy machine. Maybe that’s what we need. 150 million copies of different Id’s and signatures on the secret envelope.

 

Were observers allowed to witness voter’s signature and record name to cross reference name against ballots mailed out?

 

Do you think States violated federal laws, past and present for allowing a foreign entity into the most sacred place in U. S. Politics, where your ballot is counted? And the foreign entity presence was in our 2016 elections as well. Why no out rage than, simply has to do with high level officials allegations of voter fraud as a result of involvement in changing votes and the capability of their products and supportive services and applications.

 

And what products of Dominion Voting Systems are being used in which States?

 

Dominion Voting Systems categorically denies false assertions about vote switching and software issues with their voting systems stateo ment n their web site follows:

 

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT: FACTS & RUMORS

 

Dominion Voting Systems categorically denies false assertions about vote switching and software issues with our voting systems.

 

According to a Joint Statement by the federal government agency that oversees U.S. election security, the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA): "There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."  The government & private sector councils that support this mission called the 2020 election "the most secure in American history."

 

1) Dominion is not shuttering its offices.  Employees have been encouraged to work remotely and protect their social media profiles due to persistent harassment and threats against personal safety.

 

Dominion employees are being forced to retreat from their lives due to personal safety concerns, not only for our employees themselves, but also for their extended families.

 

· ABC News has reported on these security concerns, saying that after "two weeks of false fraud claims," this is the latest sign that "freewheeling online rhetoric has real-world consequences."

 

Dominion team members are working around the clock to address issues with law enforcement and take every measure we can to ensure the safety of our employees.

 

2) Vote deletion/switching assertions are completely false.

 

An unsubstantiated claim about the deletion of 2.7 million pro-Trump votes that was posted on the Internet and spread on social media has been taken down and debunked by independent fact-checkers.

 

· Edison Research (ER) has refuted any claims that company data suggests any voting irregularities, including vote switching.  Edison Research President Larry Rosin told The Dispatch Fact Check, "Edison Research created no such report and we are not aware of any voter fraud."

· Claims that 941,000 votes for President Trump in Pennsylvania were deleted are impossible.  The fourteen counties using Dominion systems collectively produced 1.3 million votes, representing a voter turnout of 76%.  Fifty-two percent of those votes went to President Trump, amounting to 676,000 votes processed for the President in Pennsylvania using company systems.

· Dominion does not have the ability review votes in real time as they are submitted.

· The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's cybersecurity division has confirmed that it is not possible for a bad actor to change election results without detection.

 

Dominion doesn't even operate in some of the contested districts, including Philadelphia, Milwaukee, and Dane County, WI.

 

3) Assertions of "supercomputer" election fraud conspiracies are 100% false.

 

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has debunked claims about the existence of a secret CIA program for vote fraud called Hammer and Scorecard.

 

· All U.S. voting systems must provide assurance that they work accurately and reliably as intended under federal U.S. EAC and state certifications and testing requirements.  Election safeguards - from testing and certification of voting systems, to canvassing and auditing - prevent malicious actors from tampering with vote counts and ensure final vote tallies are accurate.  Read more from CISA.

 

There have been no "raids" of Dominion servers by the U.S. military or otherwise, and Dominion does not have servers in Germany.  CISA has refuted this claim on Twitter, and the U.S. Army has also confirmed to the Associated Press that it's false.

 

4) There were no Dominion software glitches and ballots were accurately tabulated.  The results are 100% auditable.

 

No credible reports or evidence of any software issues exist.  Vote counts are conducted by county and state election officials, not by Dominion.  Our systems support tabulation by those officials alone.  Human errors related to reporting tabulated results have arisen in a few counties, including some using Dominion equipment, but appropriate procedural actions have been taken by the county to address these errors were made prior to the canvass process.

 

· The Michigan Secretary of State's office offers a Fact Check Page which debunks false or erroneous claims about voting in Detroit, as well as a user-error incident in Antrim County.

· The Georgia Secretary of State has also repeatedly stated throughout the count that "[a]s the work goes on, I want to assure Georgia voters that every legal vote was cast and accurately counted."

· Dominion's systems are not responsible for 2,631 uncounted ballots discovered in Floyd County, Georgia during the statewide recount.  The Secretary of State's office has cited clerical error and lack of following proper procedures as the cause.

 

Votes are not processed outside the United States.  Votes are counted and reported by county and state election officials - not by Dominion, or any other election technology company.  Assertions that votes are counted in Germany are completely false, as has been fact-checked by the Associated Press.

 

5) Dominion employees do not have access to the ballot adjudication system, nor do they operate it.

 

The canvass process exists to allow election officials to validate and count ballots that were unable to be counted on Election Day because they needed additional adjudication.  Dominion employees do not have access to this adjudication system, nor do they operate it.

 

· Access to any adjudication system resides with the election authority using it.  The system is controlled through secure and verifiable user accounts, and all the voter intent adjustments are securely logged in the system and then recorded in the digital image of the ballot.

 

All states require bipartisan/multi-person teams in order to adjudicate ballots in accordance with the law.

 

6) Dominion is a nonpartisan U.S. company based in Denver, CO.

 

Dominion has no company ownership relationships with the Pelosi family, Feinstein family, Clinton Global Initiative, Smartmatic, Scytl, or any ties to Venezuela or Cuba.  Dominion works with all U.S. political parties; our customer base and our government outreach practices reflect this nonpartisan approach.

 

· The Associated Press has verified that Dominion has no ties to Venezuela.

 

As reported by the Associated Press, "Dominion made a one-time philanthropic commitment at a Clinton Global Initiative meeting in 2014, but the Clinton Foundation has no stake or involvement in Dominion's operations, the nonprofit confirmed."  The meeting included bipartisan attendees focused on international democracy-building.

 

7) Dominion is not, and has never been, owned by Smartmatic.

 

Dominion is an entirely separate company and a fierce competitor to Smartmatic.

· Dominion and Smartmatic do not collaborate in any way and have no affiliate relationships or financial ties.

· Dominion does not use Smartmatic software.

 

The only associations the companies have ever had were: - In 2009, Smartmatic licensed Dominion machines for use in the Philippines.  The contract ended in a lawsuit. - In 2010, Dominion purchased certain assets from Sequoia, a private U.S. Company.  Smartmatic, a previous owner of Sequoia, pursued legal actions against Dominion.

 

8) No unauthorized or last-minute software updates occurred.

 

Claims about software updates being done the night before Election Day are 100% false.  Our voting systems are designed and certified by the U.S. government to be closed and do not rely on network connectivity.

 

· Both Spalding County and the Georgia Secretary of State have verified that a) this type of unauthorized update is impossible, and b) the actual logs from equipment under the custody of the County determined an update did NOT happen the night before the election.

 

Georgia Voting System Implementation Manager Gabe Sterling has affirmed in his daily press briefing on November 9 that "nothing was done to the [PollPad] system after [October 31]," when voter files were updated as part of normal procedure.

 

9) Misinformation is an attack on our Dominion customers: local election officials and Secretaries of State.

 

Erroneous claims that precincts in Michigan had more votes recorded than actual voters point to an affidavit that has several glaring errors.  The counties cited are in Minnesota, not Michigan, and the affidavit's claims regarding over-votes are not verified with any data from previous Minnesota elections or the Secretary of State.  This claim has no basis in truth.

 

These dedicated public servants - not Dominion - run our elections and many have reaffirmed the integrity of the elections.  Recent statements from election officials include:

 

MICHIGAN

 

· The Michigan Secretary of State's office debunked false claims about the election in the state, stating absentee ballot counting was transparent and accurate and that an isolated user error in Antrim County did not affect election results.

· A spokesperson for the Michigan Secretary of State stated, "We have not seen any evidence of fraud or foul play in the actual administration of the election.  What we have seen is that it was smooth, transparent, secure and accurate."

 

GEORGIA

 

· The Georgia Secretary of State stated upon completion of a statewide review of ballots on November 19, "Georgia's historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state's new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results."

 

ARIZONA

 

The Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors released a letter on November 17 noting, "The evidence overwhelmingly shows the system used in Maricopa County is accurate and provided voters with a reliable election... The Dominion tabulation equipment met mandatory requirements during logic and accuracy testing before the Presidential Preference Election, the Primary Election and the General Election.  And after each of these 2020 elections, the hand count audit showed the machines generated an accurate count."

 

10) There are no issues with the use of Sharpie pens.

 

Election officials provide writing instruments that are approved for marking ballots to all in-person voters using hand-marked paper ballots.  Dominion Voting Systems machines can read all of these instruments, including Sharpies.

 

· The DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, "if a ballot has issues that impacts its ability to be scanned, it can be hand counted." The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors assured voters that "sharpies do not invalidate ballots." Dominion has stated that "Sharpie pens are safe and reliable to use on ballots, and recommended due to their quick-drying ink. https://www.dominionvoting.com

·  

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems tone of denial and offered statements makes it necessary to have very convincing evidences proving quite frankly, that the systems have real time capabilities of being easily manipulated and or hacked to change votes for one candidate to another.

 

The allegations themselves have caused a ripple in the confidence of our elections free from Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems, foreign entity but not foreign power  and should have been addressed long before. You might say based on the allegations of voter fraud and use of Dominion Voting Systems in 28 U. S. States during 2020 Presidential election, Senate and House races that a foreign entity using their voting counting machines or support there of from said same may have interfered in our 2016 elections as well.

 

Had the allegations been brought fourth in the 2016 elections, we would have had a four year head start to eliminate a foreign entity in County, City and State secured polling areas, if that be the response in favor of hand counting and managing ballots from voters.

 

Hand counting ballots and personally managing ballots from voters is the only sure way to restore public confidence in U. S. Elections, yet the U. S. based Smartmatic could as it is now, do the job.

 

It’s now a choice in how to restore confidence in U. S. Elections. I wasn’t aware that a foreign entity was involved in the counting of 40% of U. S. Voters Ballots, were you?

 

I’ve never studied U.S. Elections until now. Often we over look the most important things to us until they become important.

 

I really believe the elections results could have been tampered with based on the capabilities of Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems, yet both entities have safe guarding technologies and managing services, and are regulated by U. S. government Agencies and polling involvement activates by non profit observers in the process of reporting total votes. Media out lets like to certify votes for presidential elects before official tallies declare the winner as well.

As a result of s voting counting systems of Smartmatic’s, due to remote capabilities, it seems their systems could be more easily manipulated due to remote technologies off site.

 

That’s just my observation after reviewing voting counting systems of both companies, but again, there must be evidences provided to substantiate claims brought on by President Trump and Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team.

 

For me, the old fashion way of counting, managing and verifying ballots from names and signatures against ballots mailed out to registered voters. Often though, signatures don’t always match what the letters of a person’s name looks like.

 

My take is that because President Trump himself cast doubts on the integrity of U. S. Elections of the Presidency, his followers that have supported him and his agenda, like me, have no other course to take but follow his lead in hopes he can either accept what many say is inevitable or provide over whelming evidences that will cause such an up roar that will make the elections of President invalid.

 

Pubic rallies contesting the Elections of the Presidency has occurred in the past, but what makes rallies different today, as compared to past elections for the Presidency, is the total lack of confidence in the integrity of the election process and the public sentiment of distrust in counting votes and most scary is that Biden ad Harris are seen as crusaders for socialism.

 

The 2020 election in all races, the Senate staying in republican control and picking up extra seats in the House, illustrates that U. S. Voters didn’t fall as far as Nancy Pelosi and her band of progressive thinking followers in areas of socialism governance predicted. These races in many cases most likely saw Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems used to count ballots, manage them and record votes, all with auditable capabilities.

 

So who’s for overturning the entire election?

 

Have there been other irregular assertions of voter fraud, voter suppression or changing votes reported affecting other races?

 

Is this alleged attack against the Office of the President its self?

 

Is President Trump being voted out because folks thank he’s a bad President or bad man?

Where does the hate for President Trump come from?

 

Are there more U. S. Voters that want socialism or just a different President?

 

I just want to know our elections have integrity and we can trust votes to be counted correctly.

 

After all, it’s the only time a U. S. Voter can cast their vote for a candidate that shares their values and agenda.

 

The 2020 Presidential election has me questioning the integrity of state officials and those running the ballot counting apparatus, while the process of counting votes using machines with systems having advanced remote off site access or other features, using computers with internet access, and a foreign entity involvement in our elections is alarming.

 

Both Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems appear to offer safe guards that ensure systems and management free from manipulation that also apply to vote changing and state officials and polling supervisors tampering with ballots in an effort to favor a particular person running for public office.

 

To exclaim that the democrats’ effort to take down President Trump, past legal votes of U. S. registered voters, was a coordinated effort between state, polling supervisors or ballot counters in heavily contested counties where democrats are predominant, has not been proven.

 

To suggest or claim Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems changed votes, implicating the owners and employees, requires an enormous amount of evidences and years of litigations.

 

Most the law suits have to do with violating state laws, by not allowing oservers to observe the counting of the ballots, name and signature verification are legitimate issues that the Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team is suing over. Other issues involved mail out ballots with no names, cut off times to vote advanced by approval of a states official whose decision was supported by the states Supreme Court rather than the state legislature.

 

Shepard Smith fact checks President Trump’s remarks concerning alleged voting fraud, counting legal votes and not counting illegal votes and says Trump basically is a liar, while Rudy Giuliani says fraud in ten states, 1,000’s of cases. So were there 1,000’s of cases before they ended to be 30?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=012BzDoFqiY

 

Over thirty law suits were filed so far and soon we will no if there were any illegal votes counted.

 

Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team has shown dead people voted and that other discrepancies are being reported to the courts to include not allowing observers’ access to observe ballots signatures and names. So Shepard Smith’s statement that there’s no zillionth chance of voter fraud is not correct.

 

But than Rudy Giuliani statement there were 1,000’s of cases of fraud that needed investigated itself a bit over the top, so its oblivious Rudy was excited and was overwhelmed with hearing of so much reported possible fraud cases, but in the case of Smith, there’s no defense to claiming something that has not been settled in court has no legitimacy.

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems is in the middle of what will turn out to be, damaging lack of confidence in their systems by U. S. Citizens, if Sidney Powell drops a bomb in what she’s calling an epic law suit.

 

If Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team falls short of proving the allegations their presenting to the courts and courts of appeals, may the Supreme Court, than Trump must accept the inevitable, until than, he pursues every alleged case of either fraud or inconsistency in carrying out state ad federal voting laws, alleged manipulation or interference of ballot voting, counting legal votes and disregarding illegal votes, at the minimum dead peoples votes, through audits and recounts, is his duty as President, not only to those that voted for him, but to all Americans and if there isn’t enough votes to keep him in office to carry out the agenda of the majority of U. S. registered voters, than it’s Biden and Harris’s time.

 

I also believe the Federal Courts will have to weigh in on the foreign entity involvement that relates to States using Dominion Voting Systems and the chaos that President Trump and others of high ranking office, to include elected representatives’ initiated between democrats and republicans, by stating there is election fraud, hugely benefiting Biden.

 

Casting Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems in the public view as being involved in voter suppression activities in years past in Venezuelan’s Pestilential Elections of Chaves while may be alleged, yet to be substantiated by the whistle blower in federal court, I will repeat what was said by The Associated Press, that I reported in the beginning of this report.

 

The Associated Press reported that Smartmatic accused the Venezuelan government of election fraud in 2017, pointing out that its machines were used when the opposition party won a majority in the country’s National Assembly in 2015.

 

We don’t know the content of the unsubstantiated evidences that Smartmatic’s voting machines were not rigged in Venezuela, but the systems have the capability of manipulating election results by changing votes as stated by Smartmatic to The Associated Press.

 

In preparation for Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team falling short of proving the allegations of wide spread democrat coordinated voter fraud among state officials’, polling supervisors and or ballot counters, or Sidney Powell’s assertions suggesting Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems changed votes, where do we go from here?:

 

If the election was in a sold way, overwhelming rejected by both democrats and republicans, than constitutional law governing a contested Presidential Election, then sending the election of the President to State Houses, for legislatures to elect one representative to cast one vote for the President would be a decision by the Supreme Court.

 

President Trump’s supporters/voters would like to see Trump continue his agenda, which those of us that support him, feel has America on track to not only recover from the pandemic swiftly, beginning as early as December for those front line workers faced with high risk of becoming infected while treating those that are infected, but see a robust economy come back like it was before the pandemic. The Stock Market indicators, now closing at 30,000, while the third quarter GDP of 33%, illuminates what the first quarter of 2021 will be in my view.

 

The back lash for not making every attempt to count legal votes casting out illegal votes would be so great, the Republican Party could divide.

 

Besides, in the end were going to, all us, know the over all integrity of our election process and that’s news we can unite on or at least accept in order to give Biden and Harris there opportunity to lead our country.

 

Lou Doubs guest, Sidney Powell, doubled down, saying an epic lawsuit in Georgia will be filed citing wide spread fraud in Georgia and Dominion Voting Systems is involved, Powell saying new video shows how to manipulate votes.

 

Emergency petition filed after 150k possibly fraudulent ballots ID'd; Subpoena in Georgia election https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkCFUPq3-4Q

 

As it is, American’s are a divided People politically and while Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team pursues every possible allegation of voter fraud, it’s necessary to convince republicans and others that voted for Trump and his administrations agenda under his leadership, that every alleged act of voter fraud or state law violations will be investigated regardless if a state certifies the election before declaring Biden the winner.

 

Over 10,000 republican’s votes were not counted and 100,000 plus were illegal.

 

Sidney Powell’s allegations are very serious and have consequences for our election process and if allegations turn out to be flamboyant, relying on the testimony of a whistle blower who could turnout to be either creditable or not, consequences for Sidney Powell could arise if Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems decide they were slandered, possibly resulting in the loss of partnerships and revenue, if for example the voting counting systems are pulled from ballot polling stations in favor of hand counted ballots and human handling of ballot storage and signature and name verification against ballots mailed to registered U. S. Voters.

 

Yet there is a video that shows Dominion Voting Systems Director changing a vote. No one was given access to this capability is being reported by the company on their web site.

 

In the case of Dominion Voting Systems, the company being a foreign entity involved in U. S. elections in any capacity, must be decided by the federal courts as to whether States violated constitutional Laws, Bills or Acts, when at least 28 States, engaged in partnerships with Dominion Voting Systems, placing the companies voting counting systems in polling stations. It would be different if the systems were not supported by their manufacture or the company had no role in systems management capabilities, but that’s not the case, as direct involvement in all provided services to include systems software, applications and programs of these systems falls in the jurisdiction of Dominion Voting Systems.

 

As a Trump supporter, I feel he has set in motion prosperity through success, by lowering individual and business taxes, trade agreements that bring forth more revenue than before, leveling the playing field allowing U. S. businesses to prosper, rather than suffer the loss of revenue as a result of China’s products sold cheaper in the U. S., do to not having tariffs to off set higher wages and business cost for businesses in the U. S.

 

Autos built in Mexico now have import tariffs as well, creating more revenue for the U. S. Treasure used to build the wall between Mexico and the U. S. How long will 27,000 Mexican Soldiers stay along the U. S. Boarder if Biden’s polices restore detain and release of illegal aliens when they make it to America illegally, with the promise of welfare, free health and medical services, covid-19 stimulus checks and free college?

 

An eventual amnesty offering for ten million plus illegal aliens in America will no doubt be a Biden and Harris humanitarian offering, rather than creating a path to citizenship through a Guest Workers Program, that could bridge the difference between republicans and democrats in regards to the disposition of the future of illegal aliens living in the U. S.

 

Others that want to legally work in the U. S. to include the children that were brought to America by there parents when they illegally entered the U.S., now mostly of age, a reported 750,000 unfortunate folk’s stuck in limbo would be allowed to enroll keeping their employer.

 

I could easily build a Guest Workers Program that both the Republicans and Democrats would support, provided I had the personnel and authority by the congress to do the job.

 

Immigration and illegal aliens living in the U. S. must be addressed and I reckon a Biden and Harris Administration will attempt to do so.

 

Will a Biden and Harris Administration maintain the level of energy independence the Trump and Pence Administration accomplished by allowing and encouraging fracking of oil and natural gas, horizontal drilling for oil and natural gas, leaving off shore oil and natural gas drilling left up to the states, as it should be in regards to off shore wind mill farms?

 

So many things for Biden to change and over turn federally in the courts and legislature in regards to taxes, increasing taxes for those earning over 400 hundred thousand dollars to collect 4 trillion in taxes, trade agreements with China, possibly Mexico and Canada as well, south east Asia, etc., areas where Trump made significant changes benefiting America Businesses and Farmers, environmental impact of greenhouse gases decreasing 2.8% during 2019 and lessoning leases on federal lands presently allowing oil and natural gas exploitation part of a Biden and Harris plan. Penalizing polluters by taxing the oil and coal industries heavily, are things ahead and such polices alarm republicans as does being the only country to pay the highest cost for creating 15% of the worlds green house gases, makes lots of folks feel there doomed and Socialism will take hold of the countries congressional leadership. Court packing the Supreme Court and admitting two more states in order to keep power are further concerns.

 

So this election is to important to so many, that record voters turned out to weigh in and the census is the election was high jacked by cheating democrats and Dominion Voting Systems, a foreign entity, while implicating Smartmatic in past vote manipulation that gave President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela victory.

Dominion Voting Systems reputation and business creditability is at stake, while the integrity of the election process is being questioned.

 

Restoring faith and confidence in our U. S. Elections is now necessary.

 

President Trump at his protest rallies repeatedly said “Can you imagine me loosing to sleepy Joe.” I couldn’t imagine how than nor how now he managed to get the national populous vote or electoral votes, but it appears the news media is reporting he did, even though every state has not certified states elections and unless heavily protested by at least half of U. S. Voters, the case presented by Trumps Reelect Campaign Legal Team, the federal courts may not be compelled to overturn the U. S. 2020 Presidential Election in favor of State legislatures deciding who the President should be if evidences are not compelling enough.

 

Could Sidney Powell’s law suit in Georgia make a difference? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1z1rWqULZw

 

Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems being removed from polling areas being used to count votes and other services is most likely.

 

I can’t believe states even placed systems with such capabilities in our poling areas as the instruments to count and manage ballots.

The Founding Fathers Feared Foreign Influence—And Devised Protections Against It - Dave Roos - Dec 5, 2019

 

When the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia during the 1787 Constitutional Convention, they represented a loosely held confederacy of Atlantic states recently freed from British rule. If the American experiment was going to work, the founding fathers knew that they had to insulate their new republic from deep-pocketed interests and old alliances from Europe. 

 

Through a course of heated conversations and compromises, safeguards against foreign influence as a corrupting force were built into the Constitution.

“The founders had just broken free from one empire, and the idea that some other empire was going to swallow them up was a constant source of fear for them,” says Mary Sarah Bilder, law professor and constitutional historian at Boston College Law School, and author of Madison’s Hand: Revising the Constitutional Convention.

 

American statesmen like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were no strangers to the backroom deals and soap-opera plot lines of 18th-century European politics. Gift-giving was common practice among foreign dignitaries, as was bestowing of titles of nobility on foreign political friends. Intermarriage of royal families was another classic way to bind the interests of two nations together.

 

If the United States was going to be different, the framers needed a founding document that fully recognized and defended against the corrupting influence of foreign money and power, particularly on the president.

 

Article II of the Constitution gives such power to the president to run the executive branch that a president under the influence of a foreign nation would be far more dangerous than any other single individual,” says Stephen Saltzburg, professor at The George Washington University Law School. “That kind of conflict, between loyalty to the United States and loyalty to a foreign nation, would be intolerable.”

https://www.history.com/news/foreign-influence-constitution-founding-fathers

 

Two Key Provisions Protect Against

.

To guard against such conflicts and provide a remedy for a worst-case scenario of presidential corruption, the founders built two key provisions into the Constitution: the so-called “emoluments clause” and the power to impeach a president.

 

The emoluments clause is laid out in Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution: “And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.”

 

No gifts, no titles of nobility—the Constitution bars American presidents, ambassadors and elected representatives from even the appearance of quid pro quo. But several members of the Constitutional Convention argued this clause alone wasn’t enough to hedge against corruption of the highest office in the nation. Congress needed a remedy, a way to punish a president who crossed the line.

 

The Necessity of the Impeachment Clause

 

In James Madison’s notes from the Constitutional Convention, he says that Gouverneur Morris, author of the Preamble to the Constitution, didn’t originally see the necessity of impeachment until he considered the specter of foreign corruption.

 

“[The Executive] may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust; and no one would say that we ought to expose ourselves to the danger of seeing the first Magistrate in foreign pay without being able to guard against by displacing him,” said Morris. “One would think the King of England well secured against bribery. Yet Charles II was bribed by Louis XIV.”

 

In the 17 century, Charles II secretly accepted money from the power-hungry French King Louis XIV in exchange for selling off parts of England to France and publicly converting to Catholicism.

 

Charles II receiving the Duchess of Orleans at Dover, 1670. King Charles II of England and his sister, Henrietta Anne Stuart, negotiated the Secret Treaty of Dover, an alliance between England and France against the United Provinces of the Netherlands, in 1670. Henrietta was very close to Louis XIV of France, who was her brother-in-law. 

 

By including both the emoluments clause and congressional impeachment powers in the Constitution, the founders believed they had a two-pronged attack against foreign influence. As Edmund Jennings Randolph said at the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788, “It is impossible to guard better against corruption.”

 

In George Washington’s 1796 farewell address as the first president of the United States, he issued a stern warning against the poisonous influence of foreign governments on the affairs of the young nation.

 

"Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence... the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government."

 

While Washington resisted foreign influence as president, the framers of the Constitution recognized that the possibility of a corruptible American president was real.

 

“In the words of the constitutional scholar Cecilia Kenyon, many of the founders were ‘men of little faith,’” says Bilder. “They fundamentally believed that people’s private ambitions and thirst for more power or money were powerful motivators. You couldn't rely on the goodness of human nature. In fact, you had to create these redundant structures to guard against it.”  By Dave Roos https://www.history.com/news/foreign-influence-constitution-founding-fathers
