UPDATE 12/16 10:56 AM

The biggest problem with settling what happened with voting machines is that there are so many ways computers can be programmed or hacked, and it’s such a complicated, technical subject, that competing “experts” end up pointing in more directions than economists do.

Here is a head-spinning update on just the last two days’ worth of stories related to Dominion Voting Systems:

First, a data analyst named Russel Ramsland of Allied Security Operations Group released a forensic report claiming that the machines used in Antrim County, Michigan, had a 68% error rate, about 85,000 times more than allowed by federal law, which put ballots into adjudication, where they could be altered without oversight. He claimed it had to be deliberately designed for vote fraud.

Then the fact-checking site LeadStories.com published an article questioning Ramsland’s qualifications and claiming that his report was incorrect and did not prove vote fraud. Also, that the adjudication procedures in Antrim County were not as he described them so the votes couldn't have been altered.

Then on Tuesday, Dominion CEO John Poulos finally appeared before Republicans in a Michigan Senate hearing, where he also rejected Ramsland’s accusations and denied that Dominion flipped votes or had any ties to foreign governments. He called it a “disinformation campaign” and said paper ballots provide a backup to show the votes are accurate, and the problem in Antrim County was that the tabulators hadn’t been updated. The Senators were criticized for seeming unprepared and confused by all the technobabble (join the club!)

So, the machines are trustworthy! That settles it. But wait: another data expert who’s challenging the vote in Georgia called it “blatantly false” for Poulos to say it’s technologically impossible to program the machines to flip ballots in real time and that it hasn’t happened on Dominion machines, because it did in Michigan and Georgia. He said, “Mr. Poulos may be able to fool members of a legislature or the media but he cannot fool Election Integrity advocates who are IT professionals.” (linking to a lengthy excerpt because the original is behind a paywall.)

So will we all have to become data analysts to trust future votes? And how will we ever know the truth about this election and prove it to everyone’s satisfaction with so many people making contradictory claims? I just keep saying this: if the people who claim there’s nothing to this story will stop erasing records and turn the machines over to an impartial forensics team to verify the results, then it will settle it either way, once and for all. Any efforts to prevent that and simply deny that anything was hinky about the election will feed suspicions that will linger for years.

As for future elections, here’s a wild and crazy idea: how about handing people paper ballots after they show their IDs to verify that they’re legally allowed to vote, then having them be counted by human beings with no political affiliations while observers from both parties stand close at hand and aren't ordered out of the building?

I can already hear the objection: “That would take too long to find out who won!” Would it take longer than 44 days? Because that’s how long it’s been since Election Day.

ORIGINAL STORY:

According to the forensics report by Russell Ramsland of Allied Security Operations Group, released Monday in compliance with a court order, crucial security and adjudication logs are missing from the machines. These logs go back years, but –- wait for it –- it’s only the ones from 2020 that are gone. “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed,” the report says.

"The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes,” the report explains. “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.”

What makes this even more suspicious is that the tabulation error rate for this election was a staggering 68.05 percent. Ballots that won’t run through the machine and be counted have to be manually adjudicated, a process where election workers decide how they should be counted. There were so many of these that they couldn’t all have been examined this way. This would explain, or at least partially explain, the very low rejection rates.

The allowable error rate established by Federal Election Commission guidelines is 1 in 250,000 ballots.

As we said, the report states, “This high error rates proves the Dominion Voting System is flawed and does not meet state or federal election laws. Because the intentional high error rate generates large numbers of ballots to be adjudicated by election personnel, we must deduce that bulk adjudication occurred."

But it goes on: "However, because the files and adjudication logs are MISSING [emphasis mine], we have not yet determined where the builk adjudication occurred or who was responsible for it.”

Investigators found that all security logs for the day before Election Day, Election Day itself, and the day after 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.

Other server logs are present, so there is no reasonable explanation, he said, for these to be missing. These logs would have given us all of the following: domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections, internet connections, times and data transfers. Right now, all this information is, shall we say, unavailable.

This is something it might be nice to be able to ask the good people of Dominion Voting Systems and their contractors about in a, you know, hearing. Preferably under oath. They’ve said repeatedly that their machines are “fully auditable,” and that might be true IF THE LOGS HAVEN’T BEEN REMOVED. But Dominion has not responded to requests from THE EPOCH TIMES for comment.

    I watched a poll worker fill out a ballot using this adjudication process right on a news report! They did it to prove it can be done and was done thousands and thousands of times. What is happening is bizarre! Proof is brought forward, the left says, that’s wrong, and everybody says okay and walks away! Are you kidding me? Biden DID NOT come close to winning this election! Why did he only “excel” in the swing states? This is absolute fraud and the Federal Legislature along with the Supreme Court, can not allow this to go forward.

    It is so obvious that election fraud was committed-it makes me sick. I didn't realize so many republicans were in bed with the democrats. President Trump worked for American patriots and
    believed in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I can only hope that people wake up to this evil agenda of the democratic socialists before we lose our country - there will be a judgment day for all the greed, power hungry, murdering people who are selling us out. Hell is real folks !!! A big thank you to President Trump for standing up to these true deplorables !!!

    I have to ask, why is this so hard to finish? When the margin for error is so much higher than the law allows, why then are you allowing it? Why would you allow our country to be put in such a dangerous situation? We The People demand that someone take a look at the evidence that Rudy Juliani, Sheldon Powell and others have presented to the Supreme Court just to be dismissed without even checking it out for Authenticity. We are tired of being dismissed as though we didn’t even exist. We are tired of being patronized like we were children. Well, this so called child is damn tired of being dismissed. It is high time that the Supreme Court took this serious, and take We The People serious. We demand results to this election. We know that the evidence proves that Biden fraudulently stole this election. I saw myself where the numbers on polling board had President Trump with thousands more votes than Biden and suddenly, Biden had the exact same numbers that President Trump did and the President had Biden’s numbers. That simply doesn’t happens. Trumps numbers went down and Biden’s numbers went up. The numbers never go down, that’s simply doesn’t happen. That would mean someone took their votes back. And that can’t happen. So stop stalling, show some respect to our President and do the right thing for America! We The People demand you do something, NOW!!

    I do not know if there was enough frau d to change the election and do not care, what is important to me is that every legal vote cast is counted and NO illegal votes be counted. Everyone knows there was fraud in this election, just as there has been in every election in our history, the question is how much fraud did we have and are we going to try and eliminate it in the future.

    Something needs to be done ASAP Trump won Biden cheated big-time and look at the rigged machines as well

    I pay taxes. I expect my vote to count as well as others. Have the machines checked for fraud

    Please send all this to Guilianne and others. I trust Huckabee, the President needs help. Then take the info to The Jan 5 meeting of electors. Proven evidence!

    DON'T STOP! Stay after them till the truth comes out!!!!! The American people deserve to know the truth. If there is nothing wrong with the way the voting process was done then they have nothing to hide and nothing to fear. Biden wins. On the other hand if they refuse to cooperate that would lead you to think something is being covered up. We the American people only want to trust the integrity of the election. God Bless America!

    This is so wrong when will people wake up If Biden claimed there was fraud they would be jumping up and down to prove it.God gave us a chance and I pray he does not remove his hand from us. I pray everyday for his mercy and our nation

    Total fraud and nothing but that. This whole election was nothing more than a fraud to help the democrats and nothing more than that. Just find it hard to believe that everyone including the democrats can not see this.

    I believe there's enough forensic evidence to challenge the electoral votes on January 6th.

    I am totally upset as everyone is not taking this Dominion voting correctly, there is fraud when towards the end of the day one person is way in the lead and then within hours its been changed, those voting systems are fraudulent!

  • Dan Rushing

    we can not allow fraud in our presidential election.

    We the people demand a new election with only in person voting by people with valid ID’s and hand counted by bipartisan people with servers from both parties watching the counting. Only then will it be a fair election. Absentee ballots only to those who request it where their ID’s are verified.

    The election of 2020 has been an incredible failure. Too many have indicated wrong doing but have been stopped in their tracks when attempting to show the wrong. This has and will effect voting for years to come. No citizen can trust the Republican or Democratic party any longer. The failure if the Supreme court to not listen to the arguments in regards to the election have tarnished it's standard of protecting the Constitution. Washington DC has lowered itself into the depths of hell the disposal of all Dominion machines and a new election must be done. Other changes should be demanded by all citizens so that Washington never has the ability to decieve the country again. The Supreme court must also be modified so that it can never fail the country.

    IC "Indefinite Confinement" ballots of bedridden voters Do NOT require ID or signature>
    Normal “Indefinite Confinement” status is a few hundred voters, NOT hundreds of 1000s
    They are among the 171,900 Wisconsinites who in the past year suddenly claimed indefinite confinement–a status that allows them to vote absentee by mail without having to show photo identification.

    Make sure you get those logs, this totally not acceptable, this is fraudulent in full play, how stupid do these people think we the Americans are, they lie in our faces, no shame at all, and we the people demand truth, and you cannot become president by stealing what don’t belong to you. The sad part about it how many of those in authority are not part of this play, offer money, power, control, this makes me sick, I pray and believe they shall be exposed.

    I appreciate your daily newsletters and I want to say you're always on target. Ever since the election President Trump has been seen very seldom (and I can understand how disappointed he is about the clear fraud perpetrated). The media, along with the Democrats machine have successfully hidden the Biden story, but now it's coming out. I wonder why, then, why the president hasn't appointed a special counsel (SC) to investigate the clear pandering the Biden have done toward China and the illegitimately gotten millions from foreign entities. He should do so and appoint a reliable and trustful SC that could continue the investigation even after Biden takes over (because if President Trump doesn't), the investigation will go no where. On a similar subject, why hasn't SC Durham completed his investigation? It was due in August 2019! What's the delay? There is nothing in the news. I, along with millions of Americans, have lost faith in the DOJ. Hunter Biden has been under investigation since 2018 and no one talks, but during the Trump's presidency there were more leaks than a colander. Why has AG Barr and the FBI been silent when on mere allegations (unproved) many of the president's collaborators have been harassed and many had their lives destroyed? Are there any people with integrity and loyalty to the Constitution left in government? Even many in the GOP (after they got reelected thanks to the president) have abandoned this president or kept silent in spite of wide spread evidence of a stolen election. And I'm talking of an irrelevant SCOTUS unwilling to do its job and protect our sacred Constitution. I wonder if some in the Intelligence or Deep State have "dirt" on the judges, especially Roberts ... It seems we're left with a one-party/branch running the country ... and in the wrong direction. Sorry for the long comment, but I had to let it out. Continue to keep the faith in our Republic even though I feel that God has abandoned this country because we abandoned Him a long time ago.
