Yes, US elections can be hacked: A long-suppressed expert report settles the argument

Yes, US elections can be hacked: A long-suppressed expert report settles the argument. By Kerry Wakefield.

After years of lawfare, a smoking gun report on US election machinery has come to light — and it shreds the supposed security of electronic voting machines in the 2020 election.

The report says the system’s flaws would allow vote switching and the alteration of election results ‘without detection’.

The report’s author says wryly it’s not even hard to do: ‘No grand conspiracies would be necessary to commit large-scale fraud, but rather only moderate technical skills….’

And while the report focuses on Georgia, it notes that the same unsafe equipment was used in 15 other states in the 2020 election, including swing states such as Arizona, Nevada and Pennsylvania. …



The report’s main finding is that the 2020 system of ballot scanners and ballot marking devices used across Georgia ‘suffers from critical vulnerabilities that can be exploited to subvert all of its security mechanisms: user authentication, data integrity protection, access control, privilege separation, audit logs, protective counters, hash validation, and external firmware validation’. More-over, any old Joe could insert malware within minutes that would affect entire systems.

The long-awaited report was written by highly awarded expert, Professor J. Alex Halderman, who is at the top of his field. The University of Michigan computer scientist and electrical engineer wrote Security Analysis of Georgia’s ImageCast X Ballot Marking Devices, after a 12-week investigation into Dominion Voting Systems equipment. It was submitted to an Atlanta, Georgia District Court in July 2021 as evidence in a long-running lawsuit challenging the integrity of Georgia’s Dominion voting system, but was sealed from public view until a few days ago.

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) confirmed Halderman’s findings and later issued a security advisory urging election officials to mitigate the identified risks. …

Did Fox settle with Dominion too soon?

It’s also worth wondering what might have happened had Delaware trial judge Eric Davis had access to the Halderman report. Ruling in March this year on the falsity of the Fox election fraud claims, he said it was ‘CRYSTAL CLEAR that none of the Statements relating to Dominion about the 2020 election are true’.

However, a number of the judge’s cited evidentiary bases had crumbled by the time his ruling came out. For example CISA famously claimed in November 2020 the election ‘was the most secure in American history’ only to issue security fixes in June 2022 after Halderman’s report; the Maricopa County election was demolished by a subsequent forensic audit; and now Georgia’s machines turn out to be wide open to fraud. Fifteen other states are also affected. Rupert is entitled to look on all this with some bitterness. …

They know:

In an outburst of truthiness, Barack Obama told a 2008 meeting in Ohio: ‘I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we got Democrats in charge of the machines…. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past, sometimes Democrats have too. Whenever people are in power they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction.’ …

Ron Klain, until recently Joe Biden’s chief of staff, is quotable here. In reply to a Vox post on July 14, 2014 showing ‘68 per cent of Americans think elections are rigged,’ Klain tweeted: ‘That’s because they are.’

The Biden Regime’s guilty behavior after the 2020 election — suppressing debate and demonizing critics, instead of a fair and open inquiry to demonstrate it was all legitimate — proves they knew.
