The findings are part of a preliminary forensic report (pdf) written by Russell Ramsland, a former Reagan White House official who has worked for NASA and MIT…. Ramsland co-founded and manages the Allied Security Operations Group (ASOG), which includes former officials from the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and Central Intelligence Agency. The group focuses on cybersecurity and open-source network penetration testing. …
Kevin Elsenheimer, the chief judge of Michigan’s 13th Circuit Court, approved the report to be released to the public on Monday.
According to the report, both the ballot-adjudication logs and the security logs for the Nov. 3 general election appear to have been removed due to the fact that logs for prior elections are still present on the machines.
“The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software,” Ramsland wrote. “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed.”
The absence of the adjudication logs is particularly alarming because the forensic exam found that the voting machines rejected an extraordinary number of ballots for adjudication, a manual process in which election workers determine the ultimate outcome for each ballot.
According to Ramsland, the Federal Election Commission allows for an error rate of .0008 percent. The machines his team examined in Antrim county had an error rate of 68.05 percent, the report states.
“Because the intentional high error rate generates large numbers of ballots to be adjudicated by election personnel, we must deduce that bulk adjudication occurred. However, because files and adjudication logs are missing, we have not yet determined where the bulk adjudication occurred or who was responsible for it,” Ramsland said. …
In addition to missing adjudication logs, the examination found that the systems are missing security logs prior to 11 p.m. on Nov. 4.
“This means that all security logs for the day after the election, on Election Day, and prior to Election Day are gone. Security logs are very important to an audit trail, forensics, and for detecting advanced persistent threats and outside attacks, especially on systems with outdated system files,” Ramsland said.
“These logs would contain domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections to file servers between file accesses, internet connections, times, and data transfers,” he added. “Other server logs before November 4, 2020 are present; therefore, there is no reasonable explanation for the security logs to be missing.”
A company that carried out a forensic audit of 22 Dominion Voting Systems in a small Michigan County this month, in a report on Monday, suggested that President Donald Trump take steps to ensure U.S. national security via a 2018 executive order [EO 13848] on foreign interference after asserting that the Dominion machines are “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors.”
“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” read a report (pdf) from Allied Security Operations Group released on a website belonging to Matthew DePerno, a local lawyer representing a plaintiff involved in the case. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.” …
Elsewhere in the report, Allied Security asserted that the “results of the Antrim County 2020 election are not certifiable,” adding that it’s the result of “machine and/or software error, not human error.” …
Last month, Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy, in reference to the reported 6,000-vote switch, said initially that what happened appeared to be a human error in combination with a software glitch. This was cited by the Michigan Secretary of State’s office, who said the vote-switch was not due to problems with the Dominion machines themselves.
Thanks to a brave judge in Michigan, we now have indisputable, concrete evidence that the votes tabulated in any county or jurisdiction in the United States using electronic voting machines supplied by Dominion Voting Systems Corporation were tainted and the audit trail required to prove the integrity of those machines has been erased. …
The Dominion system classifies ballots into two categories, 1) normal ballots and 2) adjudicated ballots. Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch.
In Central Lake Township, for example, 81.96% of the 1,491 total ballots cast were adjudicated, which means that the decision about who received the vote was made by election personnel.
All the ADJUDICATION logs for the November 2020 election cycle are missing while the files for previous years still exist. …
This is not a conspiracy theory. The report presents and explains verifiable facts. The Dominion voting systems were used to manipulate the results reported for the Presidential election and other issues on the ballot in 2020 in Antrim County, Michigan. The hardware and software used in Antrim are not unique to that location.
So the 6,000 vote switch from Trump to Biden in Antrim Country was not “human error” and a computer “glitch”, as previously claimed by the election officials last month.
The plausibly deniability of the fraudsters is breaking down, bit by bit. But will it hold until the inauguration?
