MUST SEE VIDEO: Election Hack Identified that Can Instantaneously Swap Votes on a Ballot Before It Is Even Stored

By Jim Hoft
Published August 15, 2022 at 9:00am

There’s an election hack built before the 2020 election that can instantaneously swap the bubbles on your ballot. The “filled in” bubble of your candidate is moved to the hackers’ preferred candidate and swapped out with that empty bubble. The change is made before the “ballot Image” is stored on the election server and before it’s tabulated. By using the voter’s own marking style & penmanship, these changes are undetectable to the human eye.
 
Here’s the scenario. Using a blue pen you fill in the “Trump” bubble on a ballot. Election officials insert this ballot into a tabulator. Those pixels surrounding the Trump bubble are swapped in milliseconds with the empty Biden bubble pixels. After these changes are made, the ballot image is saved to the EMS, and the candidate selections update the election totals. If an election jurisdiction uses their digital “Ballot Images” to conduct an audit, they WILL NOT find these changed ballots.
 
Gateway Pundit created the below animation to provide a visual of how this election attack works (or view here). Any real election attack using this method has no visual component. It operates behind the scenes, completely hidden.
 
To conduct this type of an election attack, bad actors just need a sample ballot. These are published well ahead of all elections. The sample ballot is used to locate the exact bubble positions. The ballot is segmented into a grid or “bounding boxes“. Vertical and horizontal lines sweep the ballot to precisely locate the targeted candidate’s bubbles. Bounding boxes are made around each bubble. Extra white space is added around the bubbles to account for penmanship that strays outside the bubble. This becomes the template for that election. The pixels inside these boxes are what they swap.
 
Prior to the election, the attacker specifies the template, which races they want to affect (Pres, Senate, etc), and by how much. While ballots are being scanned, this malicious software keeps a running tally of the “real” ballot results. Ballot images are changed on the fly to achieve the desired election outcome. To avoid detection, attackers can specify just enough manipulated images to win the race, but not by alarming amounts. The only way to catch this hack is to compare the original paper ballot to the ballot image.
Awhile back two University of Michigan students successfully wrote this malicious software using only 398 lines of code. Their “Automated Ballot Manipulation” video and 18 page whitepaper show the details. Undergrad Jeremy Wink and grad student Kart Kandula developed it while at UofM’s Security Lab. They were under the supervision of election expert J. Alex Halderman. Using the voters’ own handwriting markings to alter ballots is a truly devious approach. Depending on the computer, the entire process takes about 40 milliseconds (.04 seconds). It leaves no image artifacts behind, so the changes are undetectable.
 
The students tested it against EAC-certified scanners. They also tested it against all six different ballot styles used in America. These come from manufacturers Dominion, ES&S, Clear Ballot, Diebold, and two styles from Hart InterCivic. The ballot styles for Dominion machines were the easiest to change. The Hart eScan ballots were the most difficult. The software can move all shapes used on election ballots including bubbles, circles, boxes, rectangles, ovals, etc.
 
This sophisticated software algorithm scores and rates the marked bubbles as Sensed, Ignored, or Marginal. Some voters might make excessive scribbles or stray into the letters of a candidate’s name. If the pixel area can’t be perfectly swapped leaving no artifacts, the algorithm skips that ballot and moves on to the next one. Configuring the software settings very high, so it leaves no trace evidence, they were able to change votes on at least 50% of all ballots.
 
To illustrate an illegal election operation the two men created an attack package called “UnclearBallot”. They disguised the attack by inserting malicious code into the “Windows Driver” that allows the scanners to communicate with the election system. They created a “microdriver” that essentially “wraps” around the original driver. This is what changes the ballots. But their malicious software can run in any environment. It doesn’t have to be a driver. It can be rewritten for a machine’s firmware, installed on an Election Management Server (EMS), and so on.
 
They simulated an attack using 181,541 completed paper ballots from Clackamas County. Oregon. They changed the results of ballot proposition. UnclearBallot was configured to only modify marks with a “high confidence” the alteration would not be noticeable. They were able to alter 62,400 ballot images, which is 34%. Afterwards, they selected 1,000 altered ballots at random for examination. Human auditors could NOT detect any evidence of ballot manipulation. Had they lowered the “confidence” settings, they could have changed 89% of the ballots. Only 11% were rejected, had no chance of changes.
 
What’s most alarming is that Matthew Bernhard was involved, a Research Engineer at the hard left Voting Works. The Center For Democracy and Technology (CDT) created Voting Works, spun it out in 2018. CDT’s major donors are the Soros Open Society, Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Google, Facebook, Amazon. Others involved in this election project were Chinese speakers Henry Meng, Jensen Hwa, and Kevin Chang. In 2019 CISA and DHS partnered with Voting Works to push their bogus Risk Limiting Audits into many States before the 2020 election. It’s now used by 10 States. Voting Works has been an obnoxious proponent of mail-in ballots.
 
Students Jeremy and Kart noted there are technologies available that can detect this type of image manipulation on ballots. However, they were unable to find one election jurisdiction using any of this te

There are always people who don’t want them who never get a voice.  In California, there are many conservatives but they are disenfranchised because of Gerrymandering.

It's known as voter fraud/cheating by any other name.

Slight correction: Technology can be hacked or and misused. 

Paper ballots work. France uses them, Japan uses them, many other countries use them.

“Declare the Rightful Winner or…Have a New Election” – President Trump on the FBI Covering Up Hunter’s Laptop and Altering 2020 Election

By Joe Hoft
Published August 29, 2022 at 1:00pm

President Trump shared that the FBI buried the Hunter Biden laptop story and interfered in the 2020 election.  The only remedy is to declare the rightful winner or have another election. 
 
President Trump shared:
 
So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, “Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election.” This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately
 
President Trump is right.  The FBI interfered in the 2020 Election.  So did the media, Big Tech, corrupt politicians, corrupt government workers, and more.  The only remedy for this is as the President says, either declare the rightful winner or have a redo.
 
Redo’s have occurred before and there is a precedent for doing this.
 
Everybody knows Joe Biden didn’t win 81 million votes.

Louisiana Secretary of State Leads the Nation – Ends ERIC in State and Creates Directive to Keep 2020 Election Materials

By Joe Hoft
Published August 16, 2022 at 2:00pm

Lousiania Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin Is now leading the country in election integrity.  
 
Guest post by Christopher Alexander with the Louisiana Citizen Advocacy Group
 
In LACAG’s last submission on election reform, we linked to the testimony of Alex Halderman before the Louisiana Voting System Commission on December 13, 2021 regarding the acute vulnerabilities of Ballot Marking Devices (BMDs) used by 90% of American citizens to vote. Halderman testified that BMDs can be electronically hacked, and votes can be remotely switched from one candidate or proposition to another, without being detected by election officials. Halderman testified that bad cyber actors have tried, and continue to try, to electronically manipulate our votes. Halderman is joined by other prominent cyber-security experts like Andrew Appel of Princeton, Richard DeMillo of Georgia Tech, and Philip Stark of the University of California, Berkeley, all of whom recommend kicking BMDs to the curb as a universal voting method and replacing it with a system of secure, hand-marked paper ballots as the only fail-safe method of securing our vote. At this point, any Louisiana election official who resists the compelling need to trash BMDs does so at the risk of their political viability. LACAG continues to encourage Louisiana citizens to contact their local clerks of court and registrars of voters and say “no mas” to universal BMDs.
 
Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin appears to be listening to Louisiana citizens. Recently, Ardoin terminated Louisiana’s relationship with the Electronic Registration Information System (ERIC), created by his predecessor.   ERIC is a voluntary nation-wide voter registration system funded in part by leftist Globalist George Soros’ Open Society. Of the 31 member states, Louisiana is the first and only one yet to terminate its relationship with ERIC due to serious security concerns regarding ERIC’s management of voter registration information.
 
Advertised as a method to provide states with an accurate system of voter roll management, ERIC has fought for decades, along with the Democrat Party, against providing its voter list maintenance data to the public. Further, ERIC nowhere requires that voter rolls be periodically purged to ensure accuracy, which is both odd and alarming in light of the very reason for its existence. And ERIC’s own bylaws provide that “Under no circumstances shall the members transmit an individual’s record where the record contains documentation that an individual is a non-citizen of the United States.”  Why would an organization charged with ensuring the accuracy of voter information submitted by its member states prohibit data verifying whether an individual is an American citizen, and therefore eligible to vote in American elections? The answer is that ERIC is a glorified left-wing voter registration drive, controlled and funded by the world’s wealthiest Globalist whose goal is to undermine, not enhance, voter integrity and transparency. Victoria Marshall’s recent piece regarding both the considerable deficiencies of ERIC, as well as its deep Leftist ties, is excellent. LACAG applauds Secretary Ardoin’s consequential decision to terminate Louisiana’s relationship with ERIC and return exclusive access to Louisiana’s voter data to Louisiana election officials.
 
It is also important to note that Secretary Ardoin recently issued a critically important directive to Louisiana election officials that will both further secure the 2022 mid-term elections and, in due course, provide an opportunity to fully review election data from the controversial 2020 election.  Specifically, Secretary Ardoin’s directive requires officials to retain records “for the 2020 election, as well as each federal election going forward until otherwise noted.” (Emphasis added).
 
Every Louisiana citizen has a fundamental, individual constitutional right under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to be secure in his vote, and to know that his vote reliably reflects his choice. The freedom to choose our own leaders in a free republic is what separates this Country from brutal totalitarian regimes throughout the world. To this end, Louisiana law requires that its voting system have the “highest level of election security…”
 
LACAG applauds Secretary Ardoin for showing exceptional leadership and initiative in continuing to take steps to ensure that Louisiana election officials fully comply with Louisiana law, thereby ensuring that Louisiana is a place whose citizens can be assured that their votes are free, reliable, and secure. There is no more important task.

They are still maintaining that anyone who calls it fraud is lying and needs to be sheet down. We should run another poll now to see if anyone still believes that Biden won.
