“Could We Fix An Election –
Sure. They Would Never Know It”

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Thank you to all the readers who sent this to me. Apparently from testimony following the 2004 election, this computer programmer makes clear UNDER OATH, of how easily it would be for an organization, be it Democrat or Republican, to “flip” the election outcome via a rather simple code. – a code this programmer himself easily manufactured. This is further confirmed at the 3:10 of the video where the programmer notes how the entire system can be “hacked” to control the final voting outcome.

I used to be a JavaScript developer (aka programmer) for a large multinational bank. Everything this guy is saying is 100% reasonable.

I do think the election was rigged by the DEMS, they substantially altered the Romney vote count (and possibly many down-ticket candidates). It was the election of the century. No way was there 12 million fewer votes than 4 years ago.

Stunning testimony. Stunning, but not surprising to anyone who programs computers. A paper trail is a minimal defense, along with stringent source code certification and long CRC checks that only certified source code was actually loaded into the machines.

I should clarify. Source code is compiled into machine code. The CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) would verify that the machine code loaded into the machine was compiled from certified source code.

In the "weeds", but at the heart of the matter.

As odd as this might sound, this gives me hope. If the election was stolen, it means that a majority of Americans did not turn their backs on the good and toward darkness.

The source code should be verified by both parties, then published. There is nothing confidential about it.

Having the program report its CRC assumes that the code which reports the CRC actually calculated the CRC, and that it has not been altered to emit the expected answer instead of the correct answer.

That can be done in hardware, #9. If you're at that level, it's no different from fixing a traditional mechanical machine. There is no 'fail safe' - there is only a degree of safety. Just ask those who program our nuclear missiles or those who programmed Iran's centrifuges.

So you load in certified code. Then I load a dynamic patch in place to intercept and change however many out of the total to go to a certain party. Said patch disappearing when machine power is turned off.

I say every red county in this country should show 99% of their eligible voters - just like Philly and elsewhere - going entirely for the conservative ticket the next two elections. Ignore the screaming. Then do what needs to be done in the house, senate and WH to trim government and disenfranchise every libtard in this country. This is a war, for those of you who haven't been paying attention, and there is only one rule in a war - Make sure you win. Time to fish or cut bait.

Many years ago, here in guns and religion PA, a small-county official told me that if you knew which way the electorate was going to vote, i.e. local tax, liquor law, etc., all he had to do was input the reverse of the ballot prior to the election and the loser becomes the winner.

If stories are to be believed, electronic vote fixing has been done in the past. In fact, the guy in this YouTube is testifying about the 2004 election. Nobody blabbed, probably because it would have cost them their life.

It will be hard, but while we refocus on passing laws requiring voter ID, we also need to insist that voting go back to paper ballots. There will still be fraud, but least there will be physical evidence to examine, as opposed to easily-modified and easily-deleted code.

I am a "programmer" type myself.

In addition to what others have already said, are you aware that ne'er do wells often penetrate bank defenses, which are far stronger that what he is talking about here?

Very easy to do. The last generation was a wireless insert placed into the ATM card reader of an ATM machine. Looked just like the real thing.

Just pulled the data from the ATM cards and beamed it to a wireless hotspot nearby (like in a car in the parking lot).

The banks' counter to this was a whole new generation of ATM machines that look like Las Vegas slot machines, all blinking lights and strange noises.

Idea being that the customer is used to the Las Vegas blinking lights and when they aren't on the ATM the customer wants to use, they get suspicious and go to some other ATM.

If you really want to fix the system, as opposed to speculate about how it can be cheated, then outright disenfranchise anyone who cannot prove their american citizenship/identity AND show proof that they pay INCOME tax. At least that way if the fix was in, we would all know it without even asking.

You all remember the last time when there was supposed to be a meeting of Pubs with Zippy to discuss some issue over which there was disagreement? He reminded us all that HE WON. The Child won't let this go anywhere. If the Justice Department won't prosecute a blatant instance of physical voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, investigating this doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell.

#23 and anytime a state tries to pass voter ID laws the just-us department shoots it down. For our democratic process to be legit, in order to vote you shoud have to pass a civics test. When you do you get a voter ID card with your picture on it. And you should have to apply your thumb print to the ballot just like when you cash a check at a bank that is not yours. What does it say about a candidate that has to cheat to win? Honest? No. Integrity? None whatsoever. Intelligent? Just like the kid that steals the answers off someone elses paper. Qualified? Not be a long shot! He may have stolen the election, but he's still a loser.

I've been haunted by a remark Obama's campaign manager made the day before elections. She warned DemocRATS not to be alarmed if the exit polls showed Romney leading. She said, and I'm paraphrasing here, "We have the votes we need."

What a smug comment, unless the election was already "fixed"!

People tend to lie in Exit polls...particularly in Union states.

That said, just 100 lines of source code would be easy to either hack or code in a patch that was separate from the original code.

It matters not how many paper ballots are printed or posted. The secondary level is the machines that count the ballots are just as easy and maybe easier to dump some script into that will shed or flip votes at will.

I was convinced that this is what happened even before reading this piece. I'm equally convinced that nothing can or will be done about it. We can't beat the devil at his own game in his own back yard.

Our only hope is to turn to God in a serious way. That will only happen if the Holy Spirit brings a level of conviction and repentance to the nation the like of which has seldom been seen...and He just might do that. I, for one, am asking.

If the machines could be re-calibrated to fix the problem, why couldn't they have been re-calibrated to create the problem?

Couldn't they binary compare the code in multiple machines in the polling place to detect anomalies since not all machines appear to be altered?

What if, the voting was done on or with paper or paper-like material. That is automatically a "paper trail" and it could be inspected by the voter before submission. Such a medium could be read by simple machines - too simple to run programs. The error rates of the machines would be a tested and known quantity. Should the vote differences be within this known error, the medium could be re-run through the machines to increase the signal-to-noise ratio. Of course, a physical medium might degrade if run too many times - this would also be a tested and known function.

Over 3/5 of our states have Republican governors. The States have the power to fix this problem. The States also have the authority to investigate the elections in the six or seven swing states. Obama may come home from his latest overseas jaunt and find out that he is NOT president.

Voting fraud in this country has been a national disgrace since Chicago thugs stole the 1960 election for JFK. Way past fixing it. Republicans in office are the only card left and they have 2 years to do something about it. Can we depend on a party so inept, so weak, that they haven´t been pushing since 1960, for national voter accountability? Doubtful. All of them combined were too stupid and too gutless to do anything about the usual, deliberate, effort of Democrats to deny US troops the vote. Not a word, no bills, no questions about it in the debates. Of course they didn´t even comment on the fact that the sudden effort to replace all machines with ones controlled by a European company, was partially backed by George Soros. All Republicans seem to be good for is being dim scapegoats for any idea the son of communists, Axlerod, dreams up.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
