EVERY VOTE COUNTS, BUT WILL EVERY VOTE BE COUNTED? ELECTION INTEGRITY IN DOUBT AS MIDTERMS NEAR

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY SEPT. 21, 2022) — Every voted counts, but is every vote counted? Fall’s first day is as good a time as any to confront an ever-growing problem in election integrity.

Can the electorate believe in election results? Radical elements of this country’s two major political parties have and will continue to jump on this question not for numerical but political purposes. This helps no one and hurts everyone, since it blurs the hard reality that election fixes have become easier than ever and are occurring.

With the November midterms seven weeks away, THE PLANET and all thinking citizens have reasons for concern.

An AP story this week detailed a number of security breeches:

  • Illegal and unauthorized “inspection” of balloting machines by unauthorized people.
  • Copies of confidential voting software posted online, available for downloading.
  • Copies of computer hacks and electoral software for sale on the Dark Web.
  • Voting-system passwords posted online.

THE PLANET‘s own investigation reveals how easy it is to compromise local voting. While there may be few election workers averse to a couple of additional Franklins in their purses, there are enough, a cheap price for access to voter checklists. The scam goes like this:

  • Pay off election officials who have access to real-time voter participation lists.
  • Send information on non-voters to campaign workers of the favored party.
  • Campaign managers then pay people to use the nonvoting names to cast ballots. In localities with no ID is requirement, this is  simple.

———- ooo ———-

From AP:

“The list of suspected security breaches at local election offices since the 2020 election keeps growing, with investigation underway in three states — Colorado, Georgia, and Michigan. … In some of the security breaches [nationwide], authorities are investigating whether local officials provided unauthorized access to people who copied software and hard drive data and … shared it publicly.”

Election tampering has been happening since the Dawn of Man, when Zog stole voting pebbles out of a rival ‘s bowl. Democracy can survive a fraction of corruption, but what of when it becomes widespread? Even minimal tampering in a tight race can flip the outcome. See “Kennedy v. Nixon, 1960.”

We can also assume that foreign governments will be messing with election results.

Not good.

———- ooo ———-

In 2022, the problems are exacerbated by three trends:

  1. Computerized balloting.
  2. New methods of voting to increase voter participation.
  3. In tech terms, 2016 (Trump v. Clinton) is to 2022 what Fred Flintstone is to George Jetson.

As for (1): When we got away from mechanical voting, we lost crucial chain-of-evidence. Prior to an election, the old voting machines would be opened in front of representatives of political parties, election officials, and neutral oversight. Mechanical counters would be set to ZERO, the machine closed, locked, and sealed. The machines would produce a paper ballot as proof of the vote cast. After polls closed, machines would then be opened. An election official would break the seal, open the machine with the same witnesses as as ZEROing, and register the votes. The chain-of-evidence that was pretty much tamper-free and secure.

Today’s machines are sabotages online via computers. THE PLANET doesn’t know all the procedural technologies involved, but our techies do. All they would need to do, they tell us, is to be supplied with enough cash to purchase passwords, software, and hard drives, and they could mess with the numbers. There is NO CHAIN OF EVIDENCE THAT VOTES!

Scary.

———- ooo ———-

As for (2), statewide mail-in ballots, early voting, and drop-off points for ballots — “reforms” created for 2020 as a consequence of the pandemic — are Swiss cheese when it comes to security. They have reduced the once-sacred ballot into a commodity with less importance than a discarded lottery ticket, whichhas a chance to contain an undetected fortune. Or do you trust ballot boxes left at places such as gas stations, post offices, and convenience stores, left to be picked up by who knows and delivered after what not?

As for (3): The technology of 2022 has grown more sophisticated and complex. Ironically, more bells and whistles = greater online vulnerability.

A hacker’s dream.

Election officials have been outpaced by techies who have designed systems only they — and hackers — understand.

Yeah, your votes count, but don’t be so sure it will be counted.

Welcome to demokracy in Amerika.

I’m voting no confidence, in fair and free elections occurring Nov 2022.

Go back to paper ballots, no computer BS. No mail-in except old time absentee. Proof of citizenship/residence to register. No motor-voter BS if States are giving criminal aliens drivers licenses (FTFB!!!).

Count the votes night of election. Polls close so does voting and no more new ballots.
They counted paper ballots overnight/next day 60 years ago.

The Nov 2020 election violated many State Constitutions, which govern elections within their respective states.

Unconstitutional changes were made to ways of voting, by whim of officials (e.g. Liberals), without any laws being passed.

Other evidence of fraud was: the expulsion of impartial electors at polling and vote counting locations, video tapes of election workers feeding the same stacks of ballots into machines to be counted over and over again without any observers present, video tapes of late night drops of thousands/truckloads of ballots by “unknown” parties early morning Nov 4th 2020, video tapes of the same person(s) dumping hundreds of ballots into mail/voting boxes, dubious security against tampering/fraud of Dominion computerized voting machines, ……………

Fizze still believes it was a fair and impartial election. Do You?

The man who was Selected Nov 2020 is running America into ruin, full speed backwards down The Highway to Hell.

Think about that and: your grocery fuel and heating bills the last 20 months, the unchecked/unregulated flow of criminal aliens into our nation along with drugs and diseases , and the recent slur/characterization of 1/2 of American citizens as “semi-Nazi and Facists” by the installed puppet.

This speech/spectacle was televised with a red Satanic backdrop and fist pumping reminiscent of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.

I’ll vote Nov 2022, without confidence, that the failures and miscarriages of voting that took place Nov 2020, have been addressed.

This is why Trish Farley wants the illegal immigrants to get drivers licenses, so they can give them voting rights also. Trisha is having a panic attack over voters being allowed to decide if the illegals can having driving licenses. That’s not how this is supposed to work. The whole point of bringing so many illegals into the country is to get them to the polls. It’s not compassion by the far left, it’s about power.

My thoughts about Chrome Dome Adam Hinds resigning his State Senate position effective on Sunday, September 25th, 2022, to be the CEO of the Ted Kennedy U.S. Senate Institute in Boston effective Monday, September 26th, 2022, are that he is one of a long line of phony Pittsfield politicians that used their state government legislative offices for their own political profit and professional advancement instead of giving a damn about the fictional Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski family who lives, works and pays state and local taxes in my native hometown of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, only for the fictional Kapanskis to always be screwed over by Pittsfield politics and beyond. Chrome Dome left Pittsfield shortly after he married a high society wealthy woman who is a Professor at Amherst College. They (she) purchased a $690,000 home in Amherst, Massachusetts, which is outside of Chrome Dome’s state legislative district that is represented by State Senator Jo Comerford. Chrome Dome tried to run for Lieutenant Governor, but he didn’t even make it on the Democratic Party ballot because he didn’t buy the big wheels in Boston’s votes for the useless position. Chrome Dome is a typical corrupt career politician who is all about the Almighty Dollar and Power instead of representing the people and taxpayers of Pittsfield and beyond in Western Massachusetts, which he did nothing for since 2017, and now they will have no political representation in the Massachusetts State Senate for a little over three months until at least January 1st, 2023. The limousine latte liberals all love Chrome Dome, and the elitists all give him glowing praises, but I give Chrome Dome a big thumbs down! I predict Paul Marxism will be an even bigger flop than Chrome Dome.

US charges dozens with $250m pandemic relief fraudBy James FitzGerald
BBC News

  • Published
  • 9 hours ago

The alleged fraudsters face charges including wire fraud, money laundering and bribery.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland said the DoJ would continue to crack down on those who had “exploited the pandemic for personal gain”.
In March, the DoJ said it had brought over 1,000 criminal cases involving losses of $1.1bn – and was involved in civil litigation alleging fraud in more than $6bn of loans.

To put this into perspective:

  • 86,852 IRS agents is more than the population of Biden’s hometown of Wilmington, Delaware which has a population of 70,644.

Perfect timing for this question, are elections on the up and up. Yesterday I received the booklet pertaining to the questions being asked voters, lo and behold question 4 is missing. You ask what is question 4? It is voting on driver licenses for illegal immigrants. Now you may say not a big issue but how are you supposed to vote? If you show up at the voting booth what does a yes vote mean? You are for a repeal? or are you for the law? Just some more Masshole Democratic chicanery being played!!

This bogus law, passed by the D-RATS, seems to allow (automatic?) voter registration by just proving lawful proof of presence, not by proving American citizenship.

VOTE NO ON #4!!!

https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/ele22/information-for-voters-22/quest_4.htm

“This law allows Massachusetts residents who cannot provide proof of lawful presence in the United States to obtain a standard driver’s license or learner’s permit if they meet all the other qualifications for a standard license or learner’s permit, including a road test and insurance, and provide proof of their identity, date of birth, and residency. The law provides that, when processing an application for such a license or learner’s permit or motor vehicle registration, the registrar of motor vehicles may not ask about or create a record of the citizenship or immigration status of the applicant, except as otherwise required by law. This law does not allow people who cannot provide proof of lawful presence in the United States to obtain a REAL ID.
To prove identity and date of birth, the law requires an applicant to present at least two documents, one from each of the following categories: (1) a valid unexpired foreign passport or a valid unexpired Consular Identification document; and (2) a valid unexpired driver’s license from any United States state or territory, an original or certified copy of a birth certificate, a valid unexpired foreign national identification card, a valid unexpired foreign driver’s license, or a marriage certificate or divorce decree issued by any state or territory of the United States. One of the documents presented by an applicant must include a photograph and one must include a date of birth. Any documents not in English must be accompanied by a certified translation. The registrar may review any documents issued by another country to determine whether they may be used as proof of identity or date of birth.
The law requires that applicants for a driver’s license or learner’s permit shall attest, under the pains and penalties of perjury, that their license has not been suspended or revoked in any other state, country, or jurisdiction.
The law specifies that information provided by or relating to any applicant or license-holder will not be a public record and shall not be disclosed, except as required by federal law or as authorized by Attorney General regulations, and except for purposes of motor vehicle insurance.
The law directs the registrar of motor vehicles to make regulations regarding the documents required of United States citizens and others who provide proof of lawful presence with their license application.
The law also requires the registrar and the Secretary of the Commonwealth to establish procedures and regulations to ensure that an applicant for a standard driver’s license or learner’s permit who does not provide proof of lawful presence will not be automatically registered to vote.
The law takes effect on July 1, 2023.
WHAT YOUR VOTE WILL DOA YES VOTE would keep in place the law, which would allow Massachusetts residents who cannot provide proof of lawful presence in the United States to obtain a driver’s license or permit if they meet the other requirements for doing so.
 
A NO VOTE would repeal this law.”

How much do you want to bet that after these illegal aliens get MA DL’s, many will have “job options” waiting for them in southern (red) states?

Instead of being flown under the cover of darkness by Xiden, now these criminals will be armed with a valid state DL. Most states only require a DL from another state to be able to get a DL in that state. They can now get a DL in FL, TX, or AZ.

There is definitely a bigger plan than just giving criminal aliens DL’s in MA.

Republican Representative Liz Cheney introduced a bill Monday that would change how Congress counts presidential electors to reduce the chances of another effort to overturn election results like that mounted by former President Donald Trump last year. That does nothing to solve the problem of election fraud, but it seems that congress is more concerned about preventing Trump from running than resolving that problem.

Dr. Shiva’s lawsuit exposed the nightmare that our voting system has become. In his race for the senate primary seat in 2020 he identified a pattern in every town that used Dominion voting machines. When he asked to see the ballot images he was told they didn’t store them (a clear violation of law). Our attorney general (now gubernatorial candidate) allowed that to happen. When Dr. Shiva mentioned that on Twitter his account was taken down. Since the 2020 presidential election he asked volunteers around the country to ask for voter lists in their district and compare the number of registered voters to the total votes cast. In many cases there were more votes than voters. The Arizona audit showed a complete mess that should never have been certified.

The Dems know you won’t vote for them with this financial punishment which is why these illegal immigrants are becoming more and more important to their agenda. They need the illegals to eventually become voters because the financial punishment will be brutal from these far leftists now and in the years to come.

In Massachusetts you are automatically registered to vote if you have a drivers license, but our Secretary of State, William Galvin, promises that won’t happen if illegal immigrants receive drivers licenses legally in November if the law passes. Galvin said he will make sure that illegal immigrants will not be automatically registered to vote if they get drivers licenses in order to insure election integrity. So we have to trust them to do the right thing. Is this why Trish Farley is pushing for the drivers licenses so hard here in Mass. and is so upset that it is going to a vote? Galvin said this back in May when they had no idea this question would be on the ballot and they thought they could just push through the drivers licenses for illegals.

Frightening meeting in Washington D.C. today where far left politicians were trying to shame CEO’s of banks into accepting their ESG score system and Green New Deal agenda. The leftist politicians are bolder than ever after the passage of Biden’s Green New Deal (called the anti-inflation bill which we know is a load of garbage). One far left politician telling a bank CEO who wanted more time to speak against the far left policies, that he couldn’t do it on his time, and he was real nasty about it.

Putin is being run out of Russia and is looking for someone to put him up for a while. Trump says he can stay at Mara Largo for as long as he likes and he can go through some classified documents while on the toilet each morning. Two peas in a pod and the two most hated people on earth right now.

The city wants to use $6.5 million dollars in ARPA funds to build a brand new facility to house the homeless on West Housatonic St,
What is wrong with our city leaders?? This is nuts! What happened to the St. Joseph’s building, isn’t that being utilized?
Don’t build a new building – fix up an empty building and staff it!
What a WASTE of taxpayer money!

Who if anyone is in charge In Pittsfield, Ma? Pittsfield is becoming the worlds biggest circus with more clowns than it can handle. Is Marchetti still “representing” the people who elected him or is he still riding the “I am afraid to speak up” train driven by the mayor who seems to intimidate the hell out of the poor soul.

Can we please somehow get it into the city charter that a candidate must have some basic moral qualifications?

Why is the city building homeless shelters? That will just encourage the bums to stay. Who do you think will benefit from this? What contractor?

Not a good intersection for homeless to be wandering about. But that $6.5 million isn’t really about the homeless at all is it? Any chance this goes out to bid? Have the consultants gotten their 2 million yet? How about the architects?

How many homeless is this suppose to house? Does it account for the 1000 more that will be here by the time it is built? Cuz you know they be coming. How many of them will be begging right on that intersection? What kind of traffic chaos will that creat while this is being built? State road. Heavy traffic. Who the hells idea was this location? Are they taking land by eminent domain or does this land belong to a connected individual who will reap a shiny penny or three?

Is anyone else scared that Putin threatened to use his nuclear weapons in Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and that he is not bluffing? Putin previously said his first target in a nuclear war would be London, U.K. We are in a State of Emergency! Is Putin a madman? Billions of people would die in a nuclear war. Joe Biden voted for the U.S. Government’s authorization to invade oil-rich Iraq 20 years ago during George W. Bush’s presidential administration. Putin ordered Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Xi is planning China’s would be future invasion of Taiwan. The U.S.A., China and Russia all invaded or plan to invade sovereign countries, and they cannot fight each other in WW3 without a would-be nuclear weapons war. We need to understand that in order to not end up with a radiation-poisoned Earth.

I am very concerned, but Joe is a warmonger compared to the peacemaker President Trump. Joe will not hesitate to get us into a war especially if he thinks his agenda is in danger. He could use nuclear war to start the new world order with the globalists in charge.

If you truly knew what is going on with these globalists, you would know that they will stop at nothing to bring on the new world order. Everything from forcing people onto public transportation, getting rid of air conditioning, destroying our farms, you really need to educate yourself on what they are planning.

If the catalytic converters thieves were young females, I’m sure the cops would have woken up long enough to fuck the thieves, get their telephone numbers, and then gone back to sleeping while on duty.
