The corrupt banana republic-with-nukes that America has become has seen voter fraud before. One need only think back to the 1960 presidential election between Vice President Nixon and Massachusetts Senator John Kennedy, where voting fraud in Democratic Mayor of Chicago Richard Daley's Cook County helped win him the election. Nixon, not wanting to promote a constitutional crisis, decided not to challenge the results.
Then in the 1980's we were treated to a new form, an updated computerized form of voting fraud popularized in the book Votescam by brothers Keven and Ken Collier, who wondered how in the name of sense the major news agencies then could "call" elections for one or another candidate before the polls even closed and the votes were actually counted. Their investigations took them through a maze of destroyed paper ballots, and computerized voting machines that could easily be, and according to them, were, hacked.Their investigations took them, of course, to the then New Hampshire Governor, John Sununu (later a member of G.,H.W. Bush's administration), and to the now notorious Diebold company.
We can, and thanks to the internet, easily do entertain notions of wicked computer voting companies in league with television networks pushing buttons and adding, or subtracting, votes to this or that candidate. Could such things happen? Sure. Do they? Probably.
But it may not even have to be so convoluted or involved. Consider this one, as you watch the Dummycrook in the White House and the Republithugs on the campaign stump, slinging mud at each other in the political play-acting that presidential selections have become:
Voter Fraud Is a Piece of Cake
That's right, the time -tested Lyndon Johnson-esque tactic of having dead people vote is alive and well...in New Hampshire... funny isn't it, how that same state entered into the election prospects of George H.W. Bush, via some dubious circumstances related by the Colliers in their book. Now, it's yet another Republithug establishment insider who may have been the beneficiary of some dubious votes.

A little off topic but related are Mae Brussels radio programs in the 70s and 80s. She was a modern day muckraker, The names in her broadcasts are the same ones you hear today. She connects the drug trade with the Nazis via Klause Barbie and others. She relies on hearsay a lot but takes much of her investigation out of the news. The Catholic Church is not immune either. Her delivery is in machine gun fashion.

We try it out on our own truff first then export around the world. The foundation of the USA has been corruption. There is no such thing as Capitalism it is just good old slavery,serfdom at best rebranded. If they willing to corrupt other nations elections when not backing a coup. You can bet anything they done it before in house. You forgot hanging chads in Florida in 2000 and using criminal charges and convitions to bar people from voting now voter ID or birth certificates. I have a photo of my full birth certificates because my father used a old Speed Graphic to take the photo of it I possibility among the few people to have one that was in 1949 when I was born.
Don’t forget the Inslaw case. That was amped up technology to introduce a desired result. Going from that to vote fraud machines doesn’t seem like much of a stretch.
It is hard to find main stream sources on vote fraud. Please do note the difference between vote fraud and voter fraud- TPTB would have you believe that voters are the source of fraud. It does occasionally happen but studies have shown that it’s not widespread at all and not in the numbers the Main Stream Media would have you believe. It’s an oft-repeated cover so people won’t think about the main threat, Vote Fraud.
Mr. Farrell, I understand you are somewhat fixated on the Kennedy help in Chicago. And LBJ certainly knew how to help himself in the old days of ballot box shenanigans. But to concentrate on that is to sound a bit biased against the democrats- when actually, vote fraud is neither Republican nor Democrat but depends on the person who will be perceived as doing the most good for TPTB. (“Most good,”, does not need to oppose them) It just happens to have been Republicans in the last couple decades with the help of certain Democrats who capitulated along the way.
I think perhaps Kennedy became a “mistake” and it cost him his life. Or perhaps TPTB were really supporting LBJ all along, just that he probably could not win the election against Nixon.
Really though, I get frustrated with authors who extol people to vote the problems out of office. We didn’t vote them in- and you don’t have to have all of “them” in office- just enough to get us to where we are today. And don’t think of vote fraud at just the national level- after all, how do you get your preferred candidates up through the levels to the top?
As for Obama, whether he’s a disappointment or not, I’m not sure we’ll never know how much he really won by, as backlash against the Bush years.
And yes, we really can have honest voting in this country. But you need to go back to paper ballots, hand counted at the precinct, strict chain of custody, and audits, audits, audits.
When you get into the laws of voting, you find the machine venders wielding influence and money not only at federal officials, but state as well. Because in this country, they knew who and where to target- the state officials who would make the laws and buy the equipment.
Do people even know that we don’t audit most elections in this country? Do people know that recounts get triggered by miniscule margins, so if you cheat, cheat big? Or at least get above that quarter or half a percent difference?
As with any attempt to understand what happened, some sources are more reputable than others, some do good work while negating that work in other ways. Some sources may seem liberal to you and your readers. But please do note what one Republican technical expert had to say about Ohio in 2004:
Mr. Farrell is probably quite aware of Ahmanson and Rushdonny. Why would they be linked to the beginnings of electronic voting? Why would government contractors seem to be involved also?
More fodder to get you started:
English is not the native language of the person writing most of this:
Or just go here to read the papers:
In the early days, Ahmanson was linked to voting machine companies- and his main influence seems to have been Rushdonny:
Some of this information is outdated or so old now as to seem irrelevant- except to understand what happened to elections, it’s important to know what transpired in the past:
Just keep reading for more election comprehension near the bottom of the article:
Even the MMM managed to write a fair report asking some questions:
While this may seem like tedious reading, it is a must primer on elections and the fallacy of electronic voting:
Very interesting about Rushdoony…I did not know of this connection! Thank you!
Americans require the illusion of self-goverance, so we have faux elections.
As Stalin said in effect/
It doesn’t matter Who votes,
It’s WHO counts the votes.
ever since 11 22 1963…the day HuxLEY and the brave new world died.
R u being fecetious? I only ask because Huxley was trying to tell all of us what was about to go down…or did you read something else in between those lines? 🙂
‘we’ also rig them for other countries.
How ‘sweet’ is that (?)
