The long awaited Halderman Report was release 6/14/23.
Halderman Expert Report FINALLY Released and It’s BAD News For Voting Machine Companies
Original video. Mike Lindell is celebrating while Voting Machine companies will be trying to figure out what they do next (not Voting Machines). We have been waiting since 7/01/21 for this report to be released and validate what Mike Lindell has been saying all along. THE MACHINES MUST GO. As Mike suggests, let’s see which Fake News network will write the most heart felt apology for the garbage they have put out in opposition to these facts. The associated article and next full program on this is below. You can download the report here.

Associated article. Mike Lindell was sued for $8 Billion because a judge would not release this report.
Halderman Report on Voting Machine Vulnerabilities Finally Released and it Validates Mike Lindell’s Warnings
In a recent interview on Brannon Howse Live, Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, and Brannon Howse discussed the long-awaited release of the Expert Report, also known as the Halderman Report, on the vulnerabilities of voting machines. The report, named after Professor Alex Halderman, was released after three years of anticipation. Lindell, who has been advocating for election integrity, expressed his excitement and gratitude for the report’s release, highlighting its significance in validating claims made about the vulnerabilities of voting machines and the need for secure elections.
A Timely Revelation:
Lindell and Howse discovered the release of the Halderman Report minutes after hosting a TV show in which they called again for its release. The next hour they returned to the airwaves with a sense of joy and astonishment at the news of the release.
They emphasized the importance of this revelation, as it aligns perfectly with the upcoming Election Crime Bureau Summit in August being hosted by Mike Lindell. The report’s findings will undoubtedly add weight to discussions on the vulnerabilities of electronic voting machines and reinforce the urgency of eliminating electronic voting machines and returning to paper ballots.
Validating Election Concerns:
The Halderman Report, spanning 96 pages, dives into the weaknesses and threats posed by voting machines, including the ability to be hacked by foreign actors such as Russia and Iran. The report underscores the dangers of compromising individual votes and manipulating election outcomes without detection. The findings validate claims made by Lindell and other critics of electronic voting machines who have faced legal challenges and media scrutiny for their outspokenness.
Implications for Dominion and Media:
The release of the Halderman Report raises questions about the involvement of voting machine companies like Dominion and the role of the media in largely ignoring, mocking or misrepresenting the concerns raised by election integrity advocates. Lindell criticized Fox News for its financial settlement with Dominion and questioned the motives behind the network’s failure to investigate the vulnerabilities of the machines. He suggested that the media owes the American people and election integrity advocates a heartfelt apology for their dismissive attitude towards these concerns.
Turning the Tide:
The Halderman Report’s release marks a turning point for those advocating for free and fair elections and the removal of vulnerable voting machines from the electoral process. Lindell and Howse emphasized that this revelation would provide valuable ammunition in ongoing legal battles and efforts to expose the truth about election vulnerabilities. The report’s content will serve as a powerful tool to counter naysayers and refute claims that the machines are secure.
The release of the Halderman Report on voting machine vulnerabilities is a significant development in the fight for eliminating electronic voting machines and returning to paper ballots. Mike Lindell’s excitement and gratitude during the interview reflect the importance of this report in vindicating concerns raised by election integrity advocates. As the contents of the report become widely known, it is likely to fuel further discussions on securing elections and fortifying our national security against potential threats. The timing of the report’s release aligns perfectly with the upcoming Election Crime Bureau summit, where the findings will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping the agenda and actions necessary to ensure free and fair elections in the future.

EXPLOSIVE: Halderman Report Released in Georgia – Confirms VOTES CAN BE ALTERED Through Defective Dominion Voting Machines – Raffensperger Hid This From Public – Garland Favorito Weighs In
Original article. Judge Totenberg enabled Election Crimes/Fraud to flourish for another two and half years by sealing this report. With this report released, it should now be obvious to everyone that what Mike Lindell has been saying is true: ALL VOTING MACHINES MUST GO!!
In June 2022, The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft reported that an Obama judge had sealed the much anticipated Halderman Report on election voting machines used in Georgia.
Corrupt Obama Judge Amy Totenberg sealed and covered up the results of an investigation of voting machines in Georgia. This report has still not been released. This week CISA released a report showing material discrepancies in these systems while attempting to downplay these material issues.
Corrupt Obama Judge Amy Totenberg is the sister of NPR’s far-left correspondent Nina Totenberg.
We first reported on Obama Judge Totenberg in 2018 when she got involved in that election and tried to steal the Georgia governor’s race for Democrat Stacey Abrams.
Judge Totenberg is the corrupt judge who also allowed Hillary’s attorney, Marc Elias, to use the 14th Amendment to try and prevent Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from running in the 2022 Election:
In 2021, Judge Totenberg committed her gravest offense as a judge. She sealed and covered up the results of the Halderman report in Georgia. Up until this week ,we did not know what is in this report. Halderman’s investigation into the voting machines in Georgia started before the 2020 Election and was completed in July 2021.
Steve Bannon interviewed Kurt Olsen about cybersecurity analyst J. Alex Halderman, who found flaws in Dominion voting machines, and warned about the potential for future attacks. Judge Totenberg sealed the report. According to court documents, Halderman wrote his report after he was given 12 weeks of access to an unused Dominion ICX voting machine. Professor Halderman requested the report to be unsealed to be shared with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a standalone United States federal agency responsible for our infrastructure, including our voting systems.
Here is the interview:
Trump-hating Secretary of State Raffensperger hid this information from the public until now. Why is that?
Here is a copy of the Halderman Report released this week.
Garland Favorito brought the receipts with him on The War Room.
Garland Favorito: Finally, just yesterday I believe this report was released and it has some amazing findings that basically say what we have been saying all along. What Mike (Lindell) has been saying, what you and I have been saying, and so many people, that the system is very insecure. It can be hacked.
So what Dr. Halderman did is he looked at only the ballot marking device part of the system. This (investigation and report) is limited to that. It doesn’t actually even include the scanners which have another incredibly vulnerable. Which we have already found have been compromised in the 2020 election in Fulton County. So that’s the background, Steve, of all of what’s been going on.
Steve Bannon: I just want to make sure. I want you go through the slides. Holleman’s totally independent, right? He’s some guy that’s an expert in the field. He’s a subject matter expert. He has no axe to grind on this, correct?
Garland Favorito: Absolutely. And if anything, he leans far more on the Democrat side than the Republican. But as you said, he’s an independent professor. Certainly has no axe to grind, particularly for Donald Trump or any Republicans…
…It was a titanic fight. People from all over different organizations have requested that this report be released for the security of their own voting systems. The Secretary of State of Louisiana requested that it be released. OAN requested that it would be released for part of their lawsuit. I think Fox News as well, because Dominion is suing them. It’s critical information, but it’s critical to the security of elections in the country because you could do Dr. Halderman could have done the same thing to a different vendor as well.
Slide two if Cameron has that already. But basically this is about what we call the Dominion ICX, which is the ballot marking device. And — Dr. Holleman says that… the ICX suffers from critical vulnerabilities that can be exploited to subvert all of its security mechanisms. He goes on to say that he demonstrates that these vulnerabilities provide multiple routes by which attackers can install malicious software on Georgia ballot marking devices. And he continues on, he says, “I explain how such malware can alter voters’ votes while subverting all of the procedural protections practiced by the state. That’s about as damning as you can get.
You go on to number slide three, and he says that attackers can alter the QR codes on the printed ballots to modify voter selections. The QR code, Steve, as you know, contains the votes. The votes are accumulated out of the QR code. The system does not accumulate what the voter actually can see on text. And he also found that the attackers can forge or manipulate the smart cards that the ballot marking device uses to authenticate technicians, poll works, and voters you can manipulate. He goes on to show how they are forged. He actually forged the cards and did all sorts of things as part of his analysis.
So flipping on to the next slide, he says that the software update that Georgia installed in October 2020 left Georgia’s ballot marking devices in a state where anyone can install malware with only brief physical access to the machines. And he goes on to say, I showed that this problem can potentially be exploited in the polling place even by nontechnical voters. Go on to the next slide. And he goes on to say, I demonstrate that attackers can execute arbitrary code with root supervisory privileges, which means that. You have control of everything on the machine.
And he says by altering the election definition file that county workers copy to every BMD before each election, this has been the key point of our concerns, is that this election definition file comes from the state, and the state propagates this to every county, which propagates it to every voting machine. And Professor Holland again says that attackers could exploit this to spread malware to all ballot marking devices across the county or the entire state. And we believe that has actually been done because in 2017, we found that the Secretary of State’s Election Management Server, the state server, was exposed to the Internet for virtually anyone in the world to place malware on it. So head on to the next slide. The ICX contains numerous unnecessary Android applications.
And he talks about a terminal emulator that has a supervisory command interface that overrides all of the access controls. So he goes on to say that an attacker can alter the ballot marking devices audit logs simply by opening them in the on screen text editor application. So you could literally audit you could audit the audit logs just like you would create or change a Word document. That’s how easy that would be.
Going on to the next slide. He says that I developed a series of proof of concept attacks, which he goes over in his 96-page report. And he says that – vulnerabilities in the ballot marking device could be used to change the personal votes of individual Georgia voters, it is very likely that there are other equally critical flaws that are yet to be discovered…
…He said that attackers only have to find one of the flaws. They don’t have to find them all. He found I don’t know how many, probably a dozen or more.
Next slide. He goes on to say that the ICX BMDs that’s the Dominion ICX ballot marking devices are not sufficiently secured against technical compromise to withstand vote-altering attacks by bad actors who are likely to attack future elections in Georgia… Despite the addition of a paper trail, the malware can still change individual votes and most election outcomes without detection. And then we’ve got just one or two more slides.
The next slide: Using vulnerable ICX BMDs for all in-person voters, as Georgia does, greatly magnifies the security risk compared to jurisdictions that just use handmark paper ballots but provide the ballot marking devices to the voters upon request. So in other words, if you have a voter with an impairment, they need ballot marking device. But when you give this ballot marking device to every single voter, it increases the security risk by an incredible order of magnitude. And Dr. Haldeman goes on to say that the critical vulnerabilities in the ICX indicate that it was developed without sufficient attention to security during design, software engineering and testing. Certainly, I think that is true because why would a vendor come out with a QR-coded voting system after we had 15 years of complaints against the unverifiable voting of the old paperless DREs these systems? And it’s not just Dominion, it’s E&S as well. They have one. They are ill-conceived from the point that they were originally designed.

Dave Clements: Homeland Security Evidence of ‘Inflated Voter Registrations’ & Vulnerable Machines
Original video. Folks, This is CRUTIAL FOR REPUBLICANS TO UNDERSTAND as we prepare for the 2024 election. I am inserting this video before my detailed description of this post below because this video summarizes most of what is contained in this post (which is a lot of further detail). The one notable exception is #6 (The Side Door) in the list hereafter. Please also keep in mind that Democrats have also proclaimed that Voting Machines can not be trusted: Democrats say voting machines can not be trusted.
Bannon’s War Room, 902K followers

No one should STILL doubt this, but just in case… If we do not get rid of Voting Machines, we WILL loose our country. There is proof everywhere, but here is a concentration of evidence. Even with a very small portion of this evidence, it should be obvious to ANYONE!!! This is ONLY some of the latest evidence. There have been mountains of evidence that has come out over the years.
BTW, There is a DISTRACTION going on in Arizona that all voting machines must be manufactured in the U.S. Ask yourself, what difference does that make??? It is the software that is executing the election crimes/fraud across multiple machine manufacturers. Please, do not be distracted by this ploy. To have secure elections, ALL MACHINES MUST BE ELIMINATED FROM OUR ELECTION PROCESS!!!! Machines manufactured in the U.S. can also be used to commit the election crimes/fraud we have seen. Here are a few of the latest examples of these “solutions” (there are probably more):
- Albert Sensors – See two articles in this post (very important).
- VR Systems, BPro Total Vote Software (See TotalVote Solutions menu). Have not found hardware requirements for this software package, so it will most likely run on machines made in the U.S.
- Voter Focus. Same situation as #2.
- Tenex Software Solutions.
- National Association of Secretaries of State – This is their plan to bring more machines into the election process in order to increase their ability to commit crimes/fraud.
- “The Side Door” Geo-Enabled Elections – Don’t forget about this presentation by Jen Orten and Patrick Colbeck at the Moment of Truth Summit (Aug ’22).
Please pay close attention to the two important articles on Albert Sensors.
Think about the video of Demos claiming election fraud (2nd Albert Sensors article). Where ANY of them ever called election deniers? attacked? socially blocked? etc. etc. etc. Fair, secure, elections free of crimes and fraud is a BIPARTISAN ISSUE!!! Here is a more complete list of videos of Democrats declaring Voting Machines CAN NOT BE TRUSTED: Democrats say voting machines can not be trusted.
Please make your choice EMPHATICALLY KNOWN to your Legislators.

Original video (Station 1). Texas preformed a test case (Mock County) election to demonstrate the efficiency of their method of Hand Counting Ballots that they developed. The videos recorded can also serve as a tool in auditing the results. Also see the “Missouri Elections, Webinar” below as a second method. Either of these methods eliminate the corruption of elections that occur with Voting Machines. There are other areas of corruption that must also be addressed such as unnecessary Mail-In Ballots. The documentary 2,000 Mules and other sources prove the existence of that area of fraud. The “Original video” link goes to the main page of the demonstration with multiple videos. Below is the Station 1 video as an example.

Original video. I realize the following video is over three hours, but I have included it for one primary purpose. You will not find more details on why Voting Machines can not be trusted than this testimony by Ret. Air Force Col. Shawn Smith (@ 4:00). Thereby, why ALL VOTING MACHINES MUST GO. For more information, there are many resources on the following page: Cause of America – Missouri TV.
There is another hand counting system that might be even better (efficient, secure & verifiable). I am searching for the video of that system.

EXCLUSIVE: Corrupt Senator Mark Warner’s “Restrict Act” Is the Patriot Act for Elections that Gives the Government Enormous Power – Forcing Counties to Enable “Albert Sensors” or Mandate Other Sinister Election Activities
THE RESTRICT ACT WILL ALLOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO STEAL ELECTIONS AND SHUT AMERICANS UP ABOUT ELECTION INTEGRITY
Contributors – Estancia News, and David and Erin Clements
Last week we published two articles detailing the Orwellian election surveillance tool called “Albert Sensors” which were put in place by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through a private partner called the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The tool provides the capability to observe real-time election data.
CIS is funded in part by a major leftist non-governmental organization, Democracy Fund, and has also started guiding policy on “non-voting” technology. The use of this term is highly ironic, as the nebulous landscape of “non-voting” technology not only interfaces with all voting technology but provides the capability to control an entire election, from inflating voter rolls, AND modifying vote totals, to illegally overwriting local election returns.
Almost immediately, reports came in that these articles and a discussion about them with Joe Hoft on the Conservative Daily podcast were being censored by Twitter.
In this new era of supposed free speech on Twitter, why would publicly available facts about a government surveillance program be censored? Does the DHS still have its hooks in Twitter?
We know now that 9/11 was used as a pretext to justify the Patriot Act’s dismantling of the Fourth Amendment. The Patriot Act was introduced as a measure to spy on foreign terrorists but was shortly twisted into a domestic spying program.
Now enter the improbable story of a 21-year-old national guardsman, Jack Teixeira, leaking top secret documents to justify the RESTRICT Act. Legacy media has discussed the RESTRICT Act as a measure merely to ban TicTok – a Chinese social media app – even though TicTok is not even mentioned in the bill. The RESTRICT Act is actually a sinister attack on the First Amendment.
This Act is introduced by corrupt Democrat Senator Mark Warner of Russia Collusion fame. Warner was in on the scandal from the start and was behind the request for the Mueller Special Counsel. It was all a lie.
Warner’s RESTRICT Act vastly increases the federal government’s ability to spy on Americans’ online activity and punish them severely for sharing information that opposes the official narrative. But what hasn’t been noticed until now – the RESTRICT Act will provide the federal government with enormous control over American elections.
Section 3 of the proposed legislation gives the federal government this extremely broad power: (https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/senate-bill/686/text?s=1&r=15)
“The Secretary… is authorized to and shall take action to identify, deter, disrupt, prevent, prohibit, investigate, or otherwise mitigate, including by negotiating, entering into, or imposing, and enforcing any mitigation measure to address any risk arising from any covered transaction by any person, or with respect to any property, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States that the Secretary determines…
(C) interfering in, or altering the result or reported result of a Federal election, as determined in coordination with the Attorney General, the Director of National Intelligence, the Secretary of Treasury, and the Federal Election Commission, or
(D) coercive or criminal activities by a foreign adversary that are designed to undermine democratic processes and institutions or steer policy and regulatory decisions in favor of the strategic objectives of a foreign adversary to the detriment of the national security of the United States, as determined in coordination with the Attorney General, the Director of National Intelligence, the Secretary of Treasury, and the Federal Election Commission.”
In other words – the federal government can decide that spying on local election networks is necessary to mitigate any supposed threat from any “foreign” entity and local jurisdictions will not be able to prevent them. In fact, opting out of the Albert Sensor surveillance program will become a federal crime.
Just as the Patriot Act was propped up to monitor the activities of “foreign” terrorism threats, but instead is used against American citizens domestically, the RESTRICT Act will be used against all that question the legitimacy of elections, by making such advocacy a crime.
The bill states that activities by a foreign adversary to steer election policy and regulatory decisions will become a crime if they “undermine democratic processes.” But the “foreign” distinction is a fiction because corrupt intelligence officials routinely accuse American citizens of collusion with foreign actors. Look no further than the years-long Russia collusion hoax, impeachment hoax #1, and impeachment hoax #2. All perpetrated by the legacy media and our three-letter agencies in a desperate attempt to derail Donald Trump’s presidency.
Also, Hillary Clinton famously called Tulsi Gabbard, a sitting Representative from Hawaii, a “Russian asset” and claimed Gabbard was being groomed by that foreign adversary for a third-party run against her.
While the country largely laughed off Clinton’s totally baseless accusations against Gabbard, we know that people with less power and visibility than Senator Gabbard are being actively persecuted by our government – ostensibly for simply being conservative and criticizing the government and the radical left-wing agenda and legally protesting what they believed to be a stolen 2020 Election.
The RESTRICT Act provides legal cover to punish those they deem have “undermine[d] democratic processes.” That phrase is eerily like one used by Joe Biden in his September 1, 2022, speech where he stated “MAGA Republicans” are “a clear and present danger to American democracy.”
The weaponized FBI and DOJ are making an absolute mockery of the criminal justice system and the rule of law in their barbaric treatment of the J6 prisoners. The FBI violently arrested a peaceful, pro-life activist in front of his young children, before he was acquitted of all charges by a jury. The FBI has determined that slang words like “red pill” and “based” which are used by millions of Americans are now indications of extremism.
The RESTRICT Act is a Trojan horse for Orwellian Albert Sensors to become a permanent fixture in the surveillance and manipulation of elections – all to the benefit of Marxist democrats and captured RINO Republicans.
In 2017, a group of leftist experts, former Obama officials, and the Atlantic Council used an unsubstantiated claim of “Russian interference” in the 2016 election to purchase old election equipment on E-Bay to document hackers breaking into the equipment for hours at DEF CON – a hacking conference. Following that demonstration, they held a forum in which their panel of experts trashed the machines, made fun of how old and vulnerable they were, and undermined the credibility of the manufacturers themselves. But since they were leftists, none of the people involved in that extensive effort were accused of undermining democracy or were sued for defamation by the election machine manufacturers.
Similarly, the Harvard Kennedy School Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs openly discussed collaboration efforts with communist China on cyber security issues at the same time they were working on developments in election security and combatting so-called “disinformation attacks on our elections” The Belfer Center has received no criticism for mixing their chummy relationship with communist China with guidance of American election policy, or for their role in the suppression of the huge grassroots election integrity movement.
The two-tiered system of justice that has arisen in America will become unstoppably entrenched if the RESTRICT Act passes since even criticism of that two-tiered system of justice will be twisted by our government into a crime undermining “democracy” and “national security.”
The RESTRICT Act and Albert Sensor program must be shut down or the United States will become an unrecognizable place.
Please contact the US Senate and encourage them not to pass the RESTRICT Act.

EXCLUSIVE: Was CIS Using “Albert Censors” to Steal States’ Data to Use in Nefarious Ways in 2020 Election?
THE “ALBERT SENSOR” IS AN ORWELLIAN SURVEILLANCE AND CENSORSHIP ENTERPRISE FOISTED ON UNSUSPECTING COUNTY ELECTION ADMINISTRATORS
Guest post from the Editor of the Estancia News, David Clements, and Erin Clements
Recent bombshell articles reveal that New Mexico’s Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, has illegally centralized New Mexico’s elections, exposed them to the internet, processed them on uncertified software, and lied about it to the New Mexico legislature.
Toulouse-Oliver has also granted the federal government essentially full access to county election systems through surveillance devices called “Albert Sensors” provided by a private, non-profit called Center for Internet Security (CIS). Coincidentally, CIS is a main player in the censorship scheme carried out by our own federal government, Democrat non-profits, big tech, and state election officials to silence Americans’ concerns about the 2020 election.
In 2018, an agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) called the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) partnered with CIS to provide “Cybersecurity Services” for state election entities. DHS began to pressure state and local election officials to install Albert Sensors in their networks so they can be monitored 365 days a year by the federal government through CIS. The CIS is in East Greenbush, New York, has 300 employees, and a $51 million annual budget.
In early 2020, just as the country was going into lockdown, CIS launched a new program called RABET-V for “verifying the security of…non-voting election technology.” Non-voting technology includes electronic poll books, election night reporting, electronic ballot delivery, etc.
CIS described the activities of RABET-V in a white paper as having taken election night reporting and pollbook software from two providers and developed a process for verifying that these products are “secure” despite massive evidence to the contrary. The white paper was written by CIS’s Senior Director of Election Security, Arron Wilson, who happens to be founder and CEO of an electronic ballot delivery company call Enhanced Voting.
Toulouse-Oliver jumped on board with the Orwellian Albert Sensor program almost as soon as it was launched by signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with CIS in April 2018. As part of the agreement, Toulouse-Oliver was required to give CIS a complete network diagram of New Mexico’s election systems, internet access to manage devices, a complete list of IP addresses of county computers, a list of servers, and other information. In return, CIS claimed they would monitor traffic going into and out of New Mexico’s election networks and employ an intrusion detection system to detect security threats. Most, if not all states, have since followed Toulouse-Oliver’s lead and installed Albert Sensors on their election networks.
Two statements in the MOA reveal that CIS can see a lot more than patterns of internet traffic through their Albert Sensors.
The MOA requires the entity accepting its services to provide notice to its employees and contractors that they “have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding communications or data transiting, stored on or traveling to or from [the SOS/County] information systems, and any communications or data transiting, stored on or traveling to or from the [the SOS/County] information system may be monitored disclosed or used for any lawful government purpose.”
We requested communications between the DHS, CIS and the SOS’s office to see if any security alerts or reports have been provided to the SOS over the last five years since the Albert Sensors were deployed in New Mexico. We were told no such communications exist. It appears there is no evidence that CIS has alerted the SOS of any cyber-attacks or even provided any reports on their monitoring activities.
Similar requests sent to individual counties were even less successful – as many of the counties did not know what Albert Sensors are. The fact that counties do not seem to be aware that their networks are being monitored 24/7 by the federal government is a shocking revelation. Yet, Toulouse-Oliver implied in testimony to the US Senate on March 28, 2023, that Albert Sensors are deployed statewide by her office, which “takes the resources and tools we receive from the federal government and our private partners and be able to make sure that those are all available downward to every local election jurisdiction across the state.”
If the individual counties are unaware that they are being monitored, that likely means that the SOS has failed to provide notice to county officials that they have no expectation of privacy for any communications or data passing through their networks.
Prior to the creation of CIS and the installation of Albert Sensors inside election systems, the DHS offered states assistance with cyber-hygiene scans and penetration testing prior to the 2016 election. Not all states took them up on this offer, but that didn’t stop the DHS from testing the limits of state election systems anyway. The DHS drew the ire of then Secretary of State of Georgia, Brian Kemp, for attempting to hack into his election system without permission or warning shortly after the 2016 General Election. Such a hack violated 18 USC 1030, which makes attempting to gain access to protected computer systems illegal.
If the DHS would attempt to illegally hack into a state’s election system, why should anyone trust them to have their hands in election networks all over the country?
Recent occurrences in Washington state suggest Albert Sensors don’t even work as advertised.
Lincoln County and Okanogan County in Washington were both victims of cyber-attacks after the installation of their Albert Sensors, but CIS failed to detect the hacks or alert the counties. Lincoln County canceled its contract with CIS as a result and inspired nearby Ferry County to cancel theirs as well.
What seemed like a reasonable course of action to the county commissioners in Lincoln and Ferry Counties based on the failure of CIS’s service to alert them of a serious intrusion, caused state-sponsored media, and NPR, to conduct a national smear campaign against tiny Ferry County with an article and audio report branding the Ferry County Commissioners as misinformation-spreading election deniers.
NPR’s overt-the-top hit piece on Ferry County featured a DHS spokesperson who stated that Albert Sensors are “the best tool that federal government has to see the entire landscape of what’s happening in cyberspace at these local election offices.” Why does the federal government need to see what’s going on in local election offices over which the federal government has no jurisdiction?
Further, we are constantly told that our elections are secure and not exposed to the internet. Then why are the federal government, some election officials, and state-sponsored media so worried about a tiny county that decided to ditch their Albert Sensors?
NPR’s attack on Ferry County is reminiscent of the national smear campaign by New Mexico’s SOS and Attorney General against the Otero County Commission and Otero County residents who were conducting a door-to-door canvass to determine the accuracy of Otero County’s voter rolls last spring. The Otero County canvass revealed that Otero counties rolls are woefully out-of-date and show signs of voter fraud and digital manipulation.
Smear campaigns, name-calling, and censorship seem to be the universal reaction of the federal government, election officials, social media giants, and legacy media outlets all over the country to any challenge whatsoever over the status quo of our elections – no matter how reasonable the facts.
Remember this graphic displayed during U.S. Representative Anna Paulina Luna’s testimony before the US House Oversight Committee in February that we covered?
The graphic describes the players in a scheme between government, big tech, Democrat organizations, and election officials to outright violate the First Amendment rights of Americans when it comes to our elections, the COVID response, and information on the Hunter Biden laptop. All the entities responsible for bringing us Albert Sensors are on this graphic, and Maggie Toulouse Oliver was president of NASS during the 2020 election.
Until the 2020 election, there has never been widespread questioning of the results of a U.S. election, or widely held concerns over the election systems themselves. The honor of denying elections prior to 2020 was held for a select few Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, and Kamala Harris.
But they were never called names, and there were no national smear campaigns launched to destroy them for their beliefs that an election could be stolen.
So why were certain sectors of the government, the Democrat party, election officials, and biased social media platforms anticipating the need to crush open discussion of the multitude of anomalies and illegal actions that occurred during the 2020 election? Why were those same entities busy setting up Albert Sensors in as many counties as possible between 2016 and 2020 elections to give the DHS the ability to “see the entire landscape of what’s happening in cyberspace at…local election offices”?
It’s almost as if they knew millions of people were going to question the outcome of 2020, and they had to be prepared to shut it down through name-calling, public shaming, and censorship.
Their crown jewel of operations against the American people was the ridiculous term of “violent insurrectionists” applied to the million American citizens who showed up to Washington DC on January 6th to protest what they believed was a stolen election. The recent revelation of the Twitter files and release of the Capital surveillance footage has shown this pejorative to be a ridiculous fiction. Jacob Chansley – the media’s most villainized protestor – was released over a year early after it was revealed that he was escorted around the capital and let into the Senate chambers by none other than Capitol Police officers.
The facts are clear: the DHS, CISA, CIS, NASS, and Maggie Toulouse-Oliver were getting Albert Censors installed in as many counties as they could, while they were simultaneously setting up a far-reaching, powerful censorship network.
Albert Sensors failed to alert counties of real, harmful intrusions all while a big government Faustian bargain was struck. An Orwellian surveillance program was installed in local counties, with most clerks ignorant that it exists. Yet, the SOS signed off on an agreement where local officials have no reasonable expectation of privacy of their data.
The DHS, CISA, NASS, and Maggie Toulouse-Oliver are not acting in good faith. Our elections are exposed to the internet, Albert Sensors can give corrupt pockets of our government real-time data about the outcome of our elections, and time to react if the data doesn’t support the political outcomes they desire. When legitimate investigators and auditors uncover disturbing manipulation of our elections, the censorship regime quickly attempts to silence, smear, and destroy anyone that reveals the truth.
