Soros-Linked Voting Machines Cause Concern Over Rigged Election

A U.K. based company that has provided voting machines for 16 states, including important battleground states like Florida and Arizona, has direct ties with billionaire leftist and Clinton crusader George Soros.

With recent WikiLeaks emails showing that Hillary Clinton received foreign policy directives and coordinated on domestic policy with Soros, along with receiving tens of millions of dollars in presidential campaign support from the billionaire, concerns are growing that these shadowy players may pull the strings behind the curtains of the upcoming presidential election.

As Lifezette reports, the fact that the man in control of voting machines in 16 states is tied directly to the man who has given millions of dollars to the Clinton campaign and various progressive and globalist causes will surely leave a bad taste in the mouth of many a voter.

The balloting equipment tied to Soros is coming from the U.K. based Smartmatic company, whose chairman Mark Malloch-Brown is a former UN official and sits on the board of Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

According to Lifezette, Malloch-Brown was part of the Soros Advisory Committee on Bosnia and also is a member of the executive committee of the International Crisis Group, an organization he co-founded in the 1990s and built with funds from George Soros’ personal fortune.

 

In 2007 Soros appointed Malloch-Brown vice-president of his Quantum Funds, vice-chairman of Soros Fund Management, and vice-chairman of the Open Society Institute (former name of OSF).

Browns ties also intertwine with the Clintons as he was a partner with Sawyer-Miller, the consulting firm where close Clinton associate Mandy Grunwald worked. Brown also was also a senior advisor to FTI Consulting, a firm at which Jackson Dunn, who spent 15 years working as an aide to the Clintons, is a senior managing director.

t When taking that into account, along with the poor track record Smartmatic has of providing free and fair elections, this all becomes quite terrifying.

An astonishing 2006 classified U.S. diplomatic cable obtained and released by WikiLeaks reveals the extent to which Smartmatic may have played a hand in rigging the 2004 Venezuelan recall election under a section titled “A Shadow of Fraud.” The memo stated that “Smartmatic Corporation is a riddle both in ownership and operation, complicated by the fact that its machines have overseen several landslide (and contested) victories by President Hugo Chavez and his supporters.”

 

“The Smartmatic machines used in Venezuela are widely suspected of, though never proven conclusively to be, susceptible to fraud,” the memo continued. “The Venezuelan opposition is convinced that the Smartmatic machines robbed them of victory in the August 2004 referendum. Since then, there have been at least eight statistical analyses performed on the referendum results.”

 

“One study obtained the data log from the CANTV network and supposedly proved that the Smartmatic machines were bi-directional and in fact showed irregularities in how they reported their results to the CNE central server during the referendum,” it read.

With such suspicion and a study which claims to prove that the U.K. firm’s equipment tampered with the 2004 Venezuelan recall election, should be enough for states to reject these machines if they desire a fair election.

Smartmatic is providing machines to Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington DC, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, which means these Soros and Clinton linked machines are going to take the votes of thousands of Americans.

While GOP nominee Donald Trump has been voicing his opinion that the elections are indeed rigged due to media bias, and the proof that mainstream polls are heavily weighted to favor Clinton, it is needless to say that if the results show Hillary as a winner in November, there is going to a mess to shuffle through to find signs of honesty.

Tammany Hall: "there is no history of vote rigging in this country"

Ghost of PartysOver's picture

Way to late to do a damn thing about.

MillionDollarBonus_'s picture

MSNBC are reporting that Hillary is absolutely surging and now leading by double digits!  America is going absolutely wild for Hillary!! This is very exciting – I can sense victory, and I see that bitter right-wingers can sense defeat as they pre-emptively blame their loss on vote rigging. There is no such thing as election rigging, unless we’re talking about Al Gore losing to Bush – there was clear evidence of rigging during this election. But Republicans are known for rigging elections. Democrats have never, and will never rig an election.

Two words:  PAPER BALLOTS!!!  How anyone with 3 brain cells or more can't see that paper ballots are the way to go when voting is beyond me.  There is a paper trail, and they cannot be hacked.  They can be recounted.  Machines are easily manipulated and there is NO PAPER trail to recount.  Use paper ballots and tell Gerge Soros to go fuck himself.

About as rigged as a four-master sailing ship.

The Soros voting machine issue is one of the largest problems with this election. Trump has mentioned him by name twice during the debates and has also talked openly about a 'rigged' election. I hope he will address this directly.

We're already seeing the polls skew in Clinton's direction in unusual states like Arizona so even that is on the cards to be stolen.

C'mon, let's all get behind that petition. It only "Needs 74,146 signatures by November 20, 2016 to get a response from the White House".

I'm sure they'll get right on it.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

PS. You might have noticed that my attempt to expose you for what you are is always the same. That’s because your Spam is always the same (Using fake links to your BS site which has no connection to your comments; which are deliberately dramatic to mislead people into responding or clicking on the fake link) so it seems only fair that my exposure of your crap should also always be the same. An eye for an eye.

Will they use the rigged voting machines as an excuse to delay the election? 

"Oh, sorry, we couldn't get paper ballots printed in time, couldn't co-ordinate vote counters (with the right allegiance, of course), so we'll just have to delay the election by a few months..."

Early voting is only done by paper ballot.  I agree regular election-day voting should be done by paper ballots as well.

Yes you are Damn right. Paper ballots were used in the Brexit vote and surprise surprise the people won

 I can wait a day or two for results, I do not need instant results

Paper ballots would be kept under lock and quarded by representives of both parties

then when the time has come they would be counted and verified by both party reps

FUCK any form of voting machine, be it electronic or be it mechanical

Have you not been paying attention to Theresa May and parliament the last couple weeks? They have called into question the legality of the (non binding) referendum... meaning... there might not even be a Brexit. If they do pass it, UK will still be onboard for the TTiP and the Euro Army. Rearranging Deckchairs. Check out Ukcolumn.org and their daily show. They break it down better than I (a Yankee) can. Ya'll are fucked.

But they must be HAND COUNTED paper ballots. Machine counted paper ballots are realy no safer than touch-screen.

And it WON'T REALLY MATTER anyway without two-party coercing spoiler effect disrupting strategic hedge simple score voting.

Kernighan's picture

These jurisdictions would tell us that they cannot convert BACK to the older, paper format, in sufficient time to allow them to tabulate the vote for November 8th.  This is far more of an emergency than most people think.  To change anything like this in government takes many months, not days. 

I am a Man I am Forty's picture

Is he linked to them or does he own them?  My understanding is that he has strong ties to the guy that is Chairman.  If that is indeed the case the white house is going to respond with he doesn't own the machines try again and this is a complete waste of time.

LOL,not even your big hero Barry would claim that. To wit: Obama said back in 2008:"I want to be honest, it’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past. Sometimes, Democrats have, too."

And this time, it seems to be more than some monkeying on part of  Hitlery and Barry. Rather "we rigged some votes and screwed some folks." Go figure.

Speaking at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, Million Dollar Bonus said: “To say you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy.

“The peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes America America.

 And look, some people are sore losers, and we just got to keep going" It was actually Hillary Clinton who said that, same difference lol,

Thats just a tad bit ironinc too that if Trump wins, she will blame Putin for rigging..gimme an effing break!
