More Vote-Flipping in TX by Machines Other Than Those Made by ES&S

Unfortunately, it's not just the error-prone, hackable, wholly unverifiable iVotronics from ES&S which are failing. Error-prone, hackable and wholly unverifiable Direct Recording Electronic (DRE, usually touch-screen) voting systems made by Hart InterCivic, Diebold and Sequoia Voting Systems are also having the same problems across the country. And the Democrats, who have the most to lose, continue to do nothing about it...

On Monday, we posted a video of a WV county clerk demonstrating the vote-flips on the ES&S iVotronic and suggesting that the problem was due to touch-screen calibration issues on the machine. The video then shows the clerk inserting a cartridge into the machine to recalibrate it, after which the machine still mis-records a vote.

There is no "calibration issue" at work here, it's out-and-out software fraud/corruption. Every case, on all types of machines, shows votes flipping from Democrat to Republican- the same as we saw in 2004. Even though the fraud effort this time around will be massive, which will include other strategies to disenfranchise voters, I find it hard to believe that the election could successfully be stolen.

If the vote is stolen, then I expect there to be widespread rioting or protesting. Unless pre-election polling can be rigged (more than it has been) to show a neck and neck race then there should be unrest. Expect some dramatic staged event over the weekend that will favour the Republican campaign.
