The new owners of Ohio’s voting machines under the brand name HART Intercivic is none other than Tagg Romney the son of one of the candidates Mitt Romney… This brand was one of two targeted after 2004 as being highly corruptible. The infamous Diebold was the other.
The first question is WHY?
The obvious answer is to throw the election.
The second question is HOW?
This is an old clip made 6 years ago after the truth that in 2004, Ohio Republicans flipped a Kerry Victory over into one for Bush. Their method was so send Ohio’s precincts vote totals to Republican headquarters to be tallied. The server was SmartTec based in Chattanooga Tennessee, the same which handled all GOP traffic. Ken Blackwell was never prosecuted because the prime witness was killed in a inexplicable plane crash en-route to the trial.
This is America’s Achilles Heal.
Oddly only two counties in Ohio use Tagg’s companies machines. (Green on the map above).. Hamilton and Williams Counties. Williams County appears to be primarily Republican, just this last primary voting Rick Santorium over Romney by a ration of 46 to 26%. Its primary ballot was sparse in Democratic contests, full in Republican, a good sign of which way that county votes.
In the Tea Party Election, 2010, here is how each county voted in the Kasich-Strickland contest. Hamilton… Kascich won by 143,000 to 132,000 and in Williams, Kasich won over Strickland by 6600 to 4900…..
We all know that Ohio can be close. Nothing demonstrates that more than analyzing two districts in Hamilton County, where Tagg’s voting machines will be used for his fathers election….
Those two districts are called Cincinnati 2 and Cincinnati 3. What you are about to see, is my taking the raw data off of the voter returns after the Obama wipeout in 2008 and comparing it to the Tea Party coup in 2010. I think that after examining the data, the motive behind taking his over control of this private company will be clear….
Here is the comparison.
Cincinnati results 2008
Cincinnati 2 A-X 2555 Republican
Cincinnati 3 A-K 366 Republican
Now 2010 Kasich/Strickland
Cincinnati 2 1809 Republican
Turnout … 41%
cincinnati 3 314
Margin of victory 2008 8043
Margin of victory 2010 3919
Potential gain……….. 4124
Kasich won Ohio by as little as 77,000 votes. In these two districts alone, compared to 2008, was 4124 or 5% of the difference. Imagine the same results in a much tighter race?
The obvious Republican strategy is to keep voter turnout low in districts voting 98 to 99 percent in favor of Obama. The easiest method is to control the apparatus upon which votes are placed and counted. If one glances above one sees the difference between 40% and 70% turnout. This is already happening in Williams County. The county board has failed to comply to the Ohio Secretary of State’s requirements for achieving the necessary minimum number of voting units. The reason is because Hart Intercivic has voter machines to sell, but not to rent. The impoverished rural county could certainly afford a lease of more, but not the direct purchase of the new expensive machines. As a result, confusion will prevail, as precincts are combined to double up on Tagg’s company’s voting machines.
If the voting machines are capable of rearranging the votes in these two districts, Ohio could go red if the election is under a 10,000 voter margin. As the video above shows, it is impossible to trace. Gee, the same number of republicans voted, “but wow, look at how few Democrats voted this time. What a drop in turnout. Blacks sure didn’t show the outpouring they did for Obama 2008. Ha, ha, guess that means even they don’t think Obama is up for the job.”
That’s odd most of inner city Cincinnati’s poll workers will tell us;“we thought turnout was rather high! I guess they just didn’t vote for a president, probably just left it blank, that’s all….”
“Should the debt ceiling not be lifted in time by May 16, in order to prevent the Treasury from running out of funds, I am hereby using the emergency powers given to the Chief Executive by the Constitution, to temporarily suspend the Bush Tax Cuts until: 1) either we can legally borrow the funds to continue paying on our commitments, or 2) we bring our debt down to the 2008 level by having much more tax revenue pour in.
This is in effect, immediately, and I have instructed the IRS to recalculate all 2010 tax forms over the level of $2 million dollars, and asses those individuals and companies, for the differences.
We must take this action because Republicans want to pay politics with your lives. As Chief Executive, I am responsible to you, not them. I won’t let that happen.
With these tax cuts out of the way, and with our austerity programs already in effect, that windfall of profit the Treasury will receive, will be entirely funneled towards the paying off our debt.
This policy will continue until Republicans can act reasonably and in a productive fashion.
Every Geek and computer buff in America needs to be watching the Delaware Election website between 8:00 and 9:00 today on Election Night… with his finger on the screen shot button…
Delaware is only a state of 878,000 people… The highest turnout ever was the election 2008 when 390,962 went to the polls… If Christine wins, the Republican’s nationally take control of the Senate. That is what is at stake. Currently, publicly her website is stating that she has 1.7 million in the bank, though the last time I checked she was boasting that they’d crossed 4 million…
There is a lot of money riding on whether she wins… Oil money, Insurance money, pharmaceutical money, mining money, wall street bankers, investment brokers, all who stand to again make windfall profits should she be elected… And she might be… The race is tight..
But with so much on the line and so much at stake, who could blame someone for trying to buy the election… By buy, I mean spending some money to change the voter talleys so they match what is wanted, … not what we ..the voters of Delaware wanted…
This happened in Ohio, when Ken Stackwell was the Commissioner of Elections, and right in the middle of a very closely contested Presidential Election hinging on Ohio’s votes… The webserver for Ohio’s Department of Elections, was mysteriously swapped to Smarttech, a web hosting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee which hosts many Republican State websites…
That website currently hosts this state’s GOP now that we have a nationally contested election… Hmmm. This is a rather new development.
The Delaware website will experience excessive traffic… (and will probably crash) Every election website in America will be featuring that link on their page, as well as every political junkie in America, irregardless of political affiliation; all will be impatiently awaiting the results…
What we should be looking for is in the address bar, is this… http://elections.delaware.gov/results/html/unofresl.shtml
But if we see anything like this……NS1.CHA SMARTECHCORP.NET anywhere around the address bar… then our data was transferred to that Chattanooga site, where it could possibly be manipulated and then returned to us in it’s new form…
Delaware has a fail safe. On the back of every machine, a total is made of each voter’s transaction. The actual data units are packed up and sent to Dover where they remain sealed until inspected later during canvas. The area of opportunity exists, … where the official elections results are modified during the interim, when someone slipped inside the Department of Elections, can open the units and change the actual tallies to reflect the new data downloaded by SMARTECHCORP. NET.. from Chattanooga Tennessee.. After all, $4 million dollars IS a lot of money.
But, Delawareans are smarter than Ohioians. (That is why Ohio people in our honor, named one of their counties after us… It gives them hope they may aspire to one day become as great as we are…)
if this is slated to get done, then there is nothing we can do to stop it.. The question is … whether it gets done and we catch it? Or it gets done and we don’t.
That is the question. So, all geeks, open your tabs and be ready. After all, it’s only an hour. Be extremely vigilant if the system crashes…
Government only works when it is aligned with the will of its people… When it goes out of alignment, all those wheels turning government, .. fall off…
But if enough people are watching,… it can’t happen. One of you, could be the individual who saves this nation.
Duffy is God’s answer to a prayer.. I miss the old days of blogging when we were debating principals instead of people… Duffy has stuck to the old line of debating principals with facts, and that is what makes him special in the eyes of bloggers everywhere…
Since the passing of Steve Newton, he has been the only one to challenge me in any argument, and usually some pretty good stuff comes out of both sides during the exchange… I have respected that.. Cause once again, opinions mean dick. Facts are what we steer by.. It is my hope that in responding to his challenge that an answer may make itself apparent.. Who knows? It may not come from me… But if I’m the catalyst for bringing it out in the open, then… none of this was in vain..
Why I like to debate Duffy is simple.. Neither side, he or I, is concretely set in their opinions… We accept it when the other side makes sense… I usually go into such debates having no idea where they’ll end up… I hope the rest of you enjoy the ride as welI….
Duffy leads: Wall Street’s problems were caused by Fannie and Freddie loaning money to people they knew couldn’t pay and moreover, forcing banks to lend money to people who couldn’t pay. That was not deregulation but misregulation
kavips rebutt’s:Uh… Mr. President. That’s not entirely accurate.
First off, the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was developed for, and locked in on, urban developmental areas and had no part of the subprime boom, which primarily occurred out in western desert regions where owning 4 to 5 investment homes was normal… Those homes were overwhelmingly funded by loan originators NOT SUBJECT to the act… We all know the crises was not because people couldn’t afford a payment on their house. It came about, because with no occupants, people could not afford the payments of 4 to 5 houses….. Instead of one loan per borrower turning up in default; four to five were.
Second off, The housing bubble reached its point of maximum inflation in 2005.

Third off, During those exact same years, Fannie and Freddie were sidelined by Congressional pressure, and saw a sharp drop in their share of loans secured by the Feds… Follow the dotted line on the very bottom of the graph…
Courtesy of NYT
Fourth off; During those exact same years, private secures, like Delaware’s own AIG, grabbed the lions share of the market.
Courtesy of NYT
Remember these graphs for later on when I discuss the results of deregulation, versus regulation… But like it or not, these graphs conclusively show that private insurers, who thanks to Marie Evans, we now know were deregulated by Phil Gramm in the 2000 Omnibus Bill, were the primary cause of the worlds financial collapse.. Probably put best by these words of AIG’s spokesperson, who when asked why they didn’t have sufficient funds to cover losses, said point blank, “We were deregulated. We were no laws requiring us to keep any funds, ..so we spent it…”
Duffy leads: The loosely regulated hedge funds escaped this mess largely unscathed. Why? They can’t count on a bailout like the big banks. The Too Big To Fail banks were counting on a bailout (not unlike the S&L bailouts which started on the Republican’s watch) and they got them.
kavips rebutt’s:Uh… Mr. President. That’s not entirely accurate. I agree that the hedge funds did survive better than the banks. Not because of bailouts, but because they sold short during the crises and made billions while firms closed and people got thrown out of work. There is nothing wrong with that; I did the same. In fact close readers may remember my warnings that the crises was impending almost a year earlier. Very close readers may remember my telling them exactly when to sell, and at what point the stock market would rebound… I must say: I called it rather well.
“Hedge funds were not in my understanding, at fault in the credit crisis,” said David Ruder, former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. “At the most what they did was to sell securities when some of their investments were declining and they needed to have liquid funds. They were not the architects of these problems.”
De regulated hedge funds are not the issue… De-regulated, excessively leveraged, mortgage securities, are a different story however… They, not the banks that held them, are the cause of the crises…Years from now, when academics search for causes of the stock market crash of 2008, they will focus on the pivotal role of mortgage-backed securities. These exotic financial instruments allowed a downturn in U.S. home prices to morph into a contagion that brought down Bear Stearns a year ago this month – and more recently have brought the global banking system to its knees.
Where you err is when you state that banks too big to fail, assumed they would be bailed out… By implication, you say imply they failed from squandering money, and wanted the bailouts.. But your tax dollars didn’t flow directly to the bottom line.
The roughly $200 billion the Treasury Department has handed out to battered banks was swapped for a special class of stock that pays a 5 percent dividend (rising to 9 percent after five years.) As of April 15, the Treasury had collected about $2.5 billion in dividend payments on its investment.
So in that sense, the bailout money represents an expense for banks. That’s one reason a number of banks have said they want to give the money back as soon as possible.
You say big banks were counting on a bailout, and they got them? That didn’t happen to these banks. New Mexico, Georgia, and Florida each lost a bank just last Friday. That brings to 8, the number of banks failed in June. Unfortunately if a bank is failing, it can’t bet on itself to fail, as can a hedge fund.
Duffy leads: Banks have successfully lobbied to get their losses absorbed by taxpayers and gains are kept private. How nice for them. They felt comfortable making insane gambles because they knew they’d be bailed out. Most of them were right. Also remember that it was Bill Clinton who tore down the wall between retail and investment banking. The idea was to give banks more stability as they typically perform as exact opposites in bull and bear markets. (FWIW, I think that was a good idea and I can tell you first hand that two of the Fortune 100 banks I worked for were carried by retail banking in bear years. They may not have had bonuses those years but they didn’t have layoffs either)
kavips rebutt’s:Uh… Mr. President. That’s not entirely accurate. The idea is that the banks made bad decisions knowing taxpayers would bail them out is the issue that is inaccurate. For the record, I have no qualms that it was the Clinton legacy who tore down the wall between banks and investment banking. Like you, I feel it was a good idea to do so… Again the problem was not primarily with banks making loans to people who could not pay.. Although, it was as late as October 2009, when I was made aware of one private Bank in Denver still exaggerating income to make loans look good enough on paper to get approval of securitization. What caused the collapse was the leveraging of those loans as securities, so that as the housing market became overextended, and the ARM jumped past the low cost opening years, the damage was 100 times worse because of leveraging. What made the collapse criminal, was that the insurance most financial institutions had bought from AIG, to cover such an improbable event, had already spent by that companies executives, out on bonuses to themselves. What made it doubly criminal, was that when they received government dollars through a taxpayer bailout, those same executives assumed it was to first go towards paying their bonuses again. However, very recent events may give some cover to the argument that some collusion was implicit in the bailing out of Goldman Sacs and AIG… Basically, once bailed out, AIG paid Goldman Sacs for shares twice as much as they were worth. The documents also indicate that regulators ignored recommendations from their own advisers to force the banks to accept losses on their A.I.G. deals and instead paid the banks in full for the contracts.

There was shock and awe when Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire. Jaded as I am, anytime I hear of votes being different from the polls before and after the voting, I have to remember the election of 2004. And again of 2006. So of course when I heard that Hillary’s win came out of nowhere, I said “Hmmm. We haven’t heard from Karl Rove lately.”
Now I know most of you would never expect someone capable of manipulating votes in an election. Unfortunately I have seen it done in small down-to-earth local elections, and in other countries where winning takes precedence over playing fair.
Once again it was the bloggers who intercepted this story. I listened on mass media for it all day, and instead heard media pundits trying to explain options that could have occurred that just might make sense of something that was an unexplainable anomaly.
Bottom line, in areas where the ballots were hand counted, Obama’s and Clinton’s results match the data from all the polls. It is only in those precincts where Diebold machines were used, does Hillary have votes that seem to come from nowhere, when compared to the polling data.
Odd. Where have we seen this before. Strange fluctuations where Diebold counts the ballots. Predictable results where people count the ballots.
Can it be possible that someone could throw a world-watched primary, electrically?
It can if you are Silvestro, president of LHS Associates. (Note to law enforcement officials, please check out the malicious code emanating from that sight. Careful, it’s powerful. For the rest of you, I dismantled that link.)
You will certainly believe so if you watch this part of the documentary Hacking Democracy. Earlier this fall, a court case to abolish the Diebolds before the New Hampshire primary, failed in that endeavor. Being a small state, all of the voting machines in New Hampshire, are in the hand of one man.
Again all the polling was dead on for every candidate but two. Hillary Clinton and Obama. They changed not statewide, but ONLY in those precincts where Diebolds were used.
The Ron Paul campaign is crying fowl as well. With New Hampshire being small enough, one can backtrack and determine whether the votes listed are accurate or not. In one precent, 0 Ron Paul ballots were logged and the author of this statement knows how he voted. He also knows others who voted the same way.
So we have an actual account of a machine not counting votes correctly. Furthermore we have video proof that the machine does not total votes using principals of mathematics, ie adding. Additionally we have the website of the company that services the Diebolds, giving out malicious code if one clicks on. Finally we have the owner of the same corporation, showing his contempt for the court, and presumably for the law which it is attempting to uphold…….
So putting all those together, with a win that really shouldn’t have happened based on all data accumulated beforehand, similar to the 2004 Presidential Election, you have a good reason never to trust the totals of a Diebold reader, again.
Which proves what I said last summer. All those corporate interests that supported Bush, long ago cast their lot with Ms Clinton. It’s a shame that New Hampshire does not border Illinois, otherwise an additional 120,000 votes could have helped Obama.
So there I was as a young man, traipsing over the grassy knolls of a compound called Dachau……..and the single image of which I could not shake from my mind, was a view back home from the top of the former Twin Towers.………taken while walking around the observatory in a slow 360 degree circle and realizing that the entire mass of humanity in that circle of twenty miles, was less than the amount of those eradicated by the Nazis, without a whimper from the German people.
And as my eyes watered a bit, ((no I did not cry), I was still too young), while gazing upon the fake showers, and peering into the cyanide vats on the other side, a tiny child’s voice between my ears, kept repeating a phrase I had stumbled across before the tour on the floor inside the museum. ” You saw us being beaten, you saw us wearing stars, you saw us humiliated, you saw us being transported, and YET YOU DID NOTHING……… I remember at the time being quite angry at the timidity and the complicity of the German people. For a brief moment I hated them…….and in a typical fashion common of that gender in possession of high and excessive levels of testosterone, in those emotional moments I vowed that I, (superior being that I was) would never fear or cave in to brutal intimidation………..
Today, my friend’s friend, lies buried in Arlington……And when I clicked on a forgotten link……(do I still need this?…) and saw the face of a very brave New Castle citizen…….looking back from her high school picture…..those jaded eyes of mine wet over again as I slowly realized that I too had failed to live up to that promise I once made on a bright July afternoon, while standing beside a giant trench planted over with flowers……….
So where was I when it happened? What was I doing that was so important as events played around me? Nothing earth shattering really, and if you probe and scrape all the residue away, I was simply way too busy going through motions in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, to really worry making those tough sacrifices that are personally required to implement the necessary changes (piece of crap, I am)……. Then,……… something about that girl’s picture…………..pissed me off. I think it was how much like my own daughter she was……
So what can I do? Not much, I am no Kissinger nor Howard Baker. I cannot bring these people together and make a settlement. But I can make a choice……and that choice is this.
I can choose to STOP DOING NOTHING. I can go on record and suffer the surprise trip to Guantanamo that may come in the middle of the night (risk diminished), or the bullet to the back of the head in some forgotten landfill (not likely), if it comes to that. And most particularly, I can look at those who enabled and supported this administration when it chose to invade a nation that had not attacked us, a nation that had no intention of attacking us, a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11…….but only a nation that had the poor unfortunate distinction, of being the chosen victim that this bully of an administration had decided to make an example of………..long before the 2000 elections were ever held!
If any of you have ever felt that you too have done too little, that you too were lulled and fooled into believing this war made you safer, then come, join me outside Delaware congressman Mike Castle’s office on Friday July 6th. And should you be too busy, I will understand. Most likely you do not have that haunting childlike voice as do I between my ears, that implores ……..AND YET YOU DO NOTHING…….…But if, by some ancient gene, you do…… possess the capacity to know right from wrong, and if…… by the grace of God, you have been given time to come and be counted, and if…… you do not want to pass on, having never made a difference in anything………… then take the half hour, and come and join us; be counted on this upcoming Friday at 11:00am. (Tell Boss-women you have a doctors appointment if you have to……or call on someone you know who feels like you do, and unlike you, has nothing going on at moment in time.)
If ten people show, the war goes on, but us ten can rest at ease that we did our part. If twenty show, our numbers just grew 100% !!…….If hundreds show, one or two lines will appear in the News Journal and it will not have been in vain. If a thousand people show, the Congressman and staff will take notice. And just maybe……just maybe……..find within themselves the moral courage to add their voice to echo ours……..WE CAN MAKE A CHOICE……WE CAN DO SOMETHING.
In democracy, the real leaders are always “We, the people“: it is us who tell the government what We want them to do…… Please……..come with us……….and make our stand?
Liberal Geek turns us on to some news. This news has gotchu written all over it. Perhaps too much so……
Could it be a hoax? One should certainly hope so, for if not, then the implications are severe enough to warrant the beginning of the impeachment process that conservatives are at least privately acknowledging may be necessary to retain the good name of Conservatism past the next two months.
What is to be believed, is that the 04 Ohio election, where only 60,000 votes gave Bush the majority, was settled not in the election booth, but by the computer company that handled all the Republican computer needs and those of the extreme Christian right.
Why is this coming to light now? Because tracing the emails around the attorney general blowup, led us to interesting results in the Ohio Department of elections.
Now if you believe the party is guilty, the evidence is damning. If you forever believe and trust the motives of your party, sort of the same way some in the 41st support Adkins, then you no doubt will dismiss the evidence as far fetched.
Here is the scoop. During the attorney general information dump, an email account surfaced : SJennings@gwb43.com.
gwb43.com? What kind of email address is that? Nah, it is too obvious. But then, we are talking Republicans here, not the most computer literate of the world’s citizens, as George W. Bush himself admitted here:
“I tend not to e-mail – not only tend not to e-mail, I don’t e-mail, uh, because of, uh, the different record requests that could happen to a president. I don’t want to receive e-mails, ’cause, you know, there’s no telling what somebody would e-mail me and it would show up as, uh, you know, part of some kind of a story that – and I wouldn’t be able to say, ‘Well, I didn’t read the e-mail’ – ‘But I sent it your address; how can you say you didn’t?’ So, in other words, I’m very cautious about e-mailing.”
Who is gwb43? Well, a simple WHOIS gwb43 yields this:

Okay, RNC too smooth. Couldn’t a fake name be used if this was for real? But Smartechcorp ? Where have we heard of that name before. Oh, yes, they hosted the internet needs of the Republican National Convention back in 2004. They received from the Republican National Committee 2.3 mil in 2004. In 2006 they received from Republicans 3.3 mil according to campaign records.
So why does Ohio’s election’s IP address flip over to Smartechcorp on election night? Smartechcorp was the carrier for the GOP domains of all the states that just happened to be too tight to call. Notice they carried PA, Ohio, and Florida GOP sites, but none of the GOP sights in either heavily Republican or heavily Democratic states.
Perhaps the Ohio election sent their data to Smartechcorp because they did not feel up to the challenge. Or perhaps Blackwell did it for other nefarious reasons. One wonders why they never got their results back. The link leads nowhere.
So if Ohio Department of Elections did indeed transfer its IP address to this company, than anyone with administrator priveleges anywhere, GWB43, or any other Republican operative, could, and it is traceable, have:
” linked between the tabulator and the election results host for the updating. That would have been configured either by the tabulator company (Diebold) or the RNC. If badly configured, this could have allowed open access to the tabulator results from anyone with admin access to the RNC owned SMARTECH host. This would have given Blackwell plausible deniability. “Just let our techies configure that uplink there…).
If the SMARTECH host server was used in this way, it’s illegal because political parties aren’t allowed to access raw election data.
If this is not a hoax and insuppressible evidence over the entire internet determines this to be true, then for the past three years we have had an imposter president setting policy for our nation’s future. No wonder he feels accountable to no one, be it Congress, voters, or our own military leaders.
And that, in most people’s opinion, would be a good enough reason for impeachment. Just one request, can we get Cheney out the way first?
