INTRODUCTION - THE THREAT
I shall never forget the morning of December 15, 2000. The Cutting Edge webmaster called me because he had just heard a commentator on the radio say that the only method we could implement to prevent another "hanging chad" election through which we had just agonized through in Florida was to force a widespread implementation of E-Voting (Electronic) Machines. Jim told me, on the basis of his many years in the computer industry, electronic voting machines make it really easy for the Illuminati to steal votes and the election.
No longer would 300,000 dead people vote in Mayor Daly's Chicago district, nor would 450,000 people have to vote from the cemeteries throughout Lyndon Johnson's Texas, as occurred during the 1960 Presidential election between Richard Nixon and John Kennedy. Now, electronic voting machines, by their inherent nature, will allow operators of the system to quickly, effortlessly, and invisibly change the vote totals at any level at any state. Once the results are sent from the precinct, they go into cyberspace and are totally untraceable. Unless the electronic voting machine is equipped with a printer, no recount is possible, as there is no paper trail and, therefore, no recount and no audit.
Since the continuation of our Representative Republic is absolutely and completely dependent upon accurate vote counting, this new technology threatens the life of our Republic. These machines are a true menace to our government, and could turn us into a Banana Republic where the top political party controls the voting machinery so as to guarantee that the current officeholder would always win the election.
The threat is real, for technology has made it so. Let us examine the issues.
Can We Prove Intent To Deceive?
As any prosecutor can tell you, winning a decision in court is heavily dependent upon being able to prove that the accused wanted to commit the crime, that he possessed the "intent" to commit the crime. We must first address this issue in this article, for too many people naively believe that their officials have their best interests at heart and would never, ever act maliciously and with aforethought to do them harm. For this reason, many people will refuse to believe our teaching about our officials guiding our nation into the Satanic New World Order, even though such teaching is consistent with Biblical prophecy about the heart condition of the final rulers at the End of the Age.
Therefore, the question of this hour is simple: can we prove intent on the part of any official involved in the electronic voting industry to steal votes so as to swing the election toward any particular party or any individual candidate? You be the judge after reading this news story.
Over one year ago, the top executive of the Diebold voting machines told Ohio Republicans that he and his company were dedicated to deliver the state to President Bush in 2004!
NEWS BRIEF: "Voting Machine Controversy", by Julie Carr Smyth, Cleveland Plain Dealer, August 28, 2003, reprinted in Common Dreams News Center. http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0828-08.htm (also see AlterNet, http://www.alternet.org/election04oh/19624/)
"COLUMBUS - The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is 'committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year'. The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc. - who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election."
Can you imagine the audacity of the Chief Executive of a voting machine company boldly coming out to support President Bush in 2004, even going so far as to say that he and his Diebold Company are dedicated to delivering Ohio votes for Bush in 2004! A company who is manufacturing electronic voting machines should go to great lengths to protect their integrity of impartiality. After all, a voting machine is to be the unbiased instrument by which voters express their will, not the biased means by which one candidate, and his party, achieve a goal which is pre-determined!
This story just gets worse.
"O'Dell attended a strategy pow-wow with wealthy Bush benefactors - known as Rangers and Pioneers - at the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch earlier this month. The next week, he penned invitations to a $1,000-a-plate fund-raiser to benefit the Ohio Republican Party's federal campaign fund - partially benefiting Bush - at his mansion in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington." (Ibid.)
Thus, the Diebold company was tightly in the back pocket of President Bush, starting at least as far back as 2003. However, toward the end of this article, we learn that most of the lobbyists for electronic voting machines are also highly connected politically.
"Blackwell said Diebold is not the only company with political connections - noting that lobbyists for voting-machine makers read like a who's who of Columbus' powerful and politically connected. 'Let me put it to you this way: If there was one person uniquely involved in the political process, that might be troubling', he said. "But there's no one that hasn't used every legitimate avenue and bit of leverage that they could legally use to get their product looked at. Believe me, if there is a political lever to be pulled, all of them have pulled it." (Ibid.)
CBS News even got into the fray over rigged elections.
NEWS BRIEF: "E-Voting: Is The Fix In?", CBS News, August 8, 2004, http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/07/28/sunday/main632436.shtml
"CBS: To avoid a fiasco in this fall's election, Congress offered the states $3.9 billion to buy modern voting equipment ... The bad news is, they may have much worse problems all their own. California's experience was nothing like Maryland's ... So many of the machines malfunctioned or ran unapproved software that Shelley took the extraordinary step of decertifying them.
"Then there's the software worry."
At this point, the CBS article begins speaking about the investigations of Avi Ruben, a computer-science professor at Johns Hopkins University. Therefore, let us go right to that article, written in depth by the Jewish Times.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ballot Boxing", by Joel N. Shurkin, JewishTimes.com, October 29, 2004
"One-third of voters in the November election will be using electronic voting machines ... Dr. Rubin and many computer scientists see nothing less than a threat to American democracy in these machines. They are easy to tamper with ... that makes it possible to rig elections ... In many cases, they are set up to prevent recounts in case of disputes ..."
While this sounds potentially very serious, the worst revelation is yet to come. Dr. Rubin accidentally got his hands on the Diebold software program -- Diebold's source code -- which runs the e-voting machines. Let us pick up the story from this point.
"(Dr. Rubin's) students pored over 49,609 lines of 'code', computer language commands that look like hieroglyphics to anyone not trained as a programmer. One line blew them away. It means nothing to laymen, but it was enough to make Dr. Rubin's hair stand on end.
#define DESKEY ((des_Key* "F2654hd4".
"All commercial programs have provisions to be encrypted, protected by secret code so that no one could read or change the contents without the encryption key ... The line that staggered the Hopkins team told them, first, that the method used to encrypt the Diebold machines was a method called Digital Encryption Standard (DES), a code that was broken in 1997 and is no longer used by anyone to secure programs. F2654hd4 was the key to the encryption .. Moreover, because the key was in the source code, all Diebold machines responded to the same key. Unlock one, you can unlock them all." (Ibid.; Emphasis added)
Thus, a person working in cooperation with one of the candidates who is the "Gatekeeper" of the vote totals, could send one signal to all Diebold e-voting machines in his/her district, unlock them all simultaneously, and get inside the system to change the vote totals. While Diebold insists that it fixed its machines, Dr. Rubin says that the machines are not fixable; only a major effort to start all over can fix the problems with e-voting machines.
But, the news gets even worse, as a good hacker does not even need to have this source code to change vote totals! The State of Maryland hired a computer security company -- RABA Technologies -- to investigate the Diebold e-machines. What they found was just as disturbing as Dr. Rubin's discovery.
"RABA supported the Hopkins study in most of its accusations, and found even more problems. RABA's Michael A. Wertheimer and a team of company hackers broke into the Board of Elections computer, changed the results of a mock election and then backed out without leaving a trace. 'We did it in under five minutes', he told 'The Daily Show'." (Ibid.)
We are planning a major article on this subject, because there is so much information pouring out now that vote totals in key e-voting machine precincts that this issue demands a thorough review.
However, one more thought on this subject is appropriate. All this information is clearly available on the Internet and through professional sources, and the circle of knowledge and revelation is increasing daily. Therefore, Kerry would have had ample reason to hold off his concession phone call and speech until more information had come to the forefront. Therefore, why did he concede just hours after his own Vice-Presidential candidate, John Edwards, vowed to not concede until "every vote was counted"?
The answer is simple: John Kerry is a Bonesman of Skull & Bones. Fraternal oaths more powerful than any oath of allegiance, forbid a Bonesman from hurting another Bonesman in any way, shape or form. Now, do you see a very large reason why it was important to know that both Bush and Kerry were life-long Adepts in Skull & Bones? These facts do influence and shape events and are shaping our lives.
SPECIFIC NEWS STORIES
Carefully study this chart as it compares Exit Poll results versus the actual vote tabulation. You can see that, in states with paper ballots, the Exit Polls and the actual vote tabulation are fairly close. However, in those states with electronic voting machines, there is a wide difference between the two, and usually in Bush's favor. This result is not surprising, given the inherent dangers in electronic voting machines. Given the ease by which votes can be changed, and given the bold, strong intent to steal Ohio for Bush, as our first quote proves, one can only expect that all elections from now on are going to go exactly as the Illuminati wants them to go. One Cutting Edge subscriber called to report that, in his voting district, electronic voting was installed prior to the 2000 election; since then, there has not been one upset in any race, in a state where upsets have always been commonplace.
Now, let us review some of the stories from this 2004 election.
In each of the stories from the November 2 Presidential Election which we are going to share with you, please keep in mind that these individual stories undoubtedly represent only the proverbial "tip of the iceberg". You will also see the misleading statement that these problems do not contain enough votes to change the result of the election. The reality is that, if these few stories are just the tip of that iceberg, the entire election could have been swung into the direction desired. Further, in a closely divided election, deliberately controlled vote totals in the few precincts using electronic voting could be manipulated in order to achieve a close victory in the state for the preferred candidate.
Most people instinctively trust computers now, forgetting the recent past when it was common for the system to crash regularly, and forgetting that just a mistaken keystroke can either instantly wipe out or change massive amounts of information.
NEWS BRIEF: "Machine Error Gives Bush Extra Ohio Votes", Yahoo News, November 5, 2004
"COLUMBUS, Ohio - An error with an electronic voting system gave President Bush 3,893 extra votes in suburban Columbus, elections officials said. Franklin County's unofficial results had Bush receiving 4,258 votes to Democrat John Kerry 260 votes in a precinct in Gahanna. Records show only 638 voters cast ballots in that precinct."
Did you catch this result? Only 638 voters cast ballots in this precinct, but Bush was awarded 4,258 votes! Do you see one of the problems with electronic voting machines? Bush's total in this one Ohio precinct just shrunk by nearly 4,000 votes!
NEWS BRIEF: "Blatant Exit Poll - Final Count Disparities", Rense.com, 11/5/2004
"So, what do we actually see when comparing exit polls with actual results? There is skew - but ONLY in states which the Republicans had previously stated to be target states in play. The skew is in the same direction every time; that is to say in favor of Bush. The exit poll results are not scattered about the mean as the alternative theory predicts. They are all on the Kerry side of the vote counts as issued by the states except for a hand full of states which hit amazingly close to the exit poll figures."
"Here are the figures." (NOTE: You can view the many details given in this article: http://www.rense.com/general59/blatantexitpollfinal.htm)
Now, listen to the conclusion of this study:
"Taking the figures and measuring the size and direction of the poll to supposed vote count discrepancy, we find the variance between the exit poll and the final result:
Wisconsin: Bush plus 4%
Pennsylvania: Bush plus 5%
Ohio: Bush plus 4%
Florida: Bush plus 7%
Minnesota: Bush plus 7%
New Hampshire: Bush plus 15%
North Carolina: Bush plus 9%. " (Ibid.)
NEWS BRIEF: "Palm Beach County Logs 88,000 More Votes Than Voters", The Washington Dispatch, November 5, 2004
According to the official election results posted on the Palm Beach County election website, 542,835 ballots were cast for a presidential candidate while only 454,427 voters turned out for the election (including absentee). This leaves a discrepancy of 88,408 votes cast for the presidential candidates ... Palm Beach County has updated their numbers and added 91,802 absentee ballots and 1,041 provisional ballots ... While Palm Beach County appears to have accounted for the discrepancy, this underscores the flaws in the system and data compilation."
No kidding. Reports like this truly do "underscores the flaws in the system".
Now, let us examine another instance in which electronic voting machines delivered a most suspect result.
NEWS BRIEF: "Electronic Voting: The stolen election of 2004", Online Journal, November 5, 200
"... to those who are 'shocked' as they watched the election night numbers mysteriously slip away amidst controversy; those who are struggling to understand “what happened” let this cold realization serve as bracing edification ... It is foolish .... to expend one’s energies in 'clean' election activities, and expect good results. To quote one of George W. Bush many recent Freudian non-slips, 'we make elections'. The 2004 presidential election was just one more 'manufacture' ... Then came the “black box voting” machines."
" “The technology had a trial run in the 2002 mid-term elections. In Georgia, serviced by new Diebold systems, a popular Democratic governor and senator were both unseated in what the media called 'amazing’ upsets, with results showing vote swings of up to 16 percent from the last pre-ballot polls. In computerized Minnesota, former Vice President Walter Mondale ... was also defeated in a large last-second vote swing. Convenient ‘glitches’ in Florida saw an untold number of votes intended for the Democratic candidate registering instead for Governor Jeb 'L'il Brother' Bush. A Florida Democrat who lost a similarly ‘glitched’ local election went to court to have the computers examined—but the case was thrown out by a judge who ruled that the innards of America's voting machines are the ‘trade secrets’ of the private companies who make them.”
"In 2003, black box voting also helped oust Governor Gray Davis and installed Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Democratic stronghold of California."
"... The probability of a fix was obvious throughout the 2004 presidential campaign. Corporate media polls continued to predominantly favor Bush, never dipping his rating below 48 percent, despite his trouncing in three straight debates with Kerry, and despite mushrooming war scandals. This was in stark contrast to independent surveys that showed Kerry with commanding leads. Kerry momentum, and massive Kerry/anti-Bush voter turnout, was evident on election day, and confirmed by exit polls with dominant Kerry numbers ... "
"“The American vote count is controlled by three major corporate players, Diebold, ESS, Sequoia, and a fourth, SAIC, Science Applications International. All four are hard-wired into the Bush power structure ... They have been given millions of dollars by the Bush regime to complete a sweeping computerization of voting machines that were just used in the 2004 election. The technology involved had a trial run during the 2002 mid-term elections. Georgia had Diebold machines in every precinct. As a result, a popular Democratic governor and senator were both unseated in what the media called an 'amazing' 16 percent swing."
This revelation that these four corporations making the electronic voting machines are deeply intertwined with the Bush Administration brings us back to the quote from the Chief Executive of Diebold, at the top of this article:
"The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is 'committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year'. The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc. - who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election." (Op. Cit, Cleveland Plain Dealer)
But, the matter just gets worse.
"The mad rush to install these unverifiable computers is driven by the Help America Vote Act, signed by Bush! The chief lobbying group pushing for the act ... was a consortium of arms dealers including Northrup Grumman and Lockheed Martin. When you hear people saying, ‘take a deep breath, we will pull through this,’ ‘we need to work harder,’ ‘we need to organize’—no. We will not. It’s over. Unless electronic vote tabulation is history, and these companies are driven out of business, it’s their country. Not ours. Nobody knows, and no one will ever know, what the actual vote count was. There are no checks and balances left ... There will never again be a legitimate election in this county. Until we get rid of the machines."
We could not have stated the problem more succinctly. As my webmaster warned in December, 2000, electronic voting machines will make it very easy for the Illuminati to steal elections. No longer will any incumbent have to answer to any group of citizens for his behavior. He or she can do anything they want, knowing that they can just manipulate the voting during the next election. America is truly at the position where it truly does not matter if or for whom you vote. The whole election process is as manipulative as it was during the bad old days of Russia's Communism when government officials were regularly elected and re-elected by over 90% of the vote.
The key to success of this whole scenario is to not allow the people to realize they and their elections are now tightly controlled. Just as in the movie, "The Truman Show", the victims must not realize they are controlled. We are at the point psychologist Vance Packard predicted in his monumental book, "The People Shapers".
"We can choose to use our growing knowledge to enslave people in ways never dreamed of before, depersonalizing them, controlling them by means so carefully selected that they will perhaps never be aware of their loss of personhood." (Introduction)
Now, with electronic voting machines, the Illuminati gets exactly whom they want at every office in the land, if they so desire. If they want a Democrat to get elected, a Democrat will get elected; if they want a Republican in office, a Republican will win. In the name of promoting "democracy" and "democratic values", these electronic voting machines are destroying our freedoms, and very few citizens know or care.
As our country prepares to conduct an "election" in Iraq, you will know that, even though the voting will not be electronically, the American-sponsored candidates will win the majority. In October, the US-backed candidate for President in Afghanistan won a disputed election, amidst cries of fraud. This is the "democracy" for which our brave soldiers are fighting and dying.
Truly, the unparalleled deception against which the Bible warns is upon us.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
