We all know that the 2020 presidential elections were the most transparent, honest and above-board popular suffrage exercise in recorded history. Anyone who says otherwise is a bigoted, racist redneck yahoo, who wants Donald Trump to be the dictator for life of this proud republic. There have been several revelations that suggest that the election of 2020 was not the civics lesson we were led to believe it was (under threat of deplatforming and vilification). This week, the 2021 Halderman Report was released belatedly. It shows that Dominion Voting Systems’ voting machines may not be as unimpeachable as they were portrayed to be.
It is strange to say the least, because just a few short weeks ago, Fox News paid Dominion an eye-watering $787.50 million, and then fired Tucker Carlson as its host for suggesting the elections may not have met the standards of other bastions of democracy, such as Cuba or Zimbabwe. The National Pulse published a report on Sunday that said the Halderman Report revealed “a litany’ of critical vulnerabilities” in Dominion Voting Systems machines. These machines are currently used in several states and at all voting locations within the U.S. State of Georgia.
According to National Pulse, the report was “compiled by Professor Alex Halderman, and Prof. Drew Springall, as part of the Curling v. Raffensperger lawsuit.” It explains that “ballot scanning devices and ballot marking machines (ICX)… can be exploited in order to subvert its security mechanisms” and “ICX could also be used to alter the votes of Georgia voters.”
It’s obvious what could have been done to stop Old Joe Biden in 2020, but no matter what happens, it will be impossible to get rid of him and his henchmen before November 2024. The question is now whether or not these vulnerabilities will be fixed before the next presidential elections, or if the Dominion voting machine will again provide a golden chance for those who wish to “enhance our next presidential contest” as they did in the previous one.
Halderman’s report also reveals that “attackers” can manipulate the QR codes of printed ballots and “install malware with just a brief physical access.” Halderman continues, “An attack with a brief access to a Poll Worker Card or PIN could obtain the countywide [cryptographic] key.” Halderman noted that this can all be done without any traces: “ICX software can still change individual ballots and most election results without detection.”
Halderman warns, “[a] dishonest employee… could violate ballot confidentiality and determine how each voter voted.” Such vulnerability would not even require a large-scale plot. It would only take a few wokesters to get local election officials on board, and we could be looking at another Red Trickle or, worse, a Blue Wave, not because of the racial tensions and men’s dominance in women’s sports, but due to the voting machines.
The machines have a lot of problems, and fixing them may not be enough. This report warns “that merely patching up these specific flaws is unlikely to make ICX significantly more secure… it is very likely that other, equally important flaws… are yet to be found.” Halderman concludes, therefore, that “technical results leave Georgia voters with a greatly diminished basis to feel confident that their votes cast on the ICX BMD will be secured.” Again, this is not just a problem for Georgia. The Pulse reports that by November 2020, “24 states will have used the Dominion Democracy Suite as a voting system. The ICX is mentioned in 16 of those states. Georgia has mandated the use of this system.”
As we approach the elections of 2024, the integrity and fairness of the process are seriously in jeopardy. Who is trying to fix this?
