Re: Election Meddling

Hmmm.  The US has done this so many times, to so many people, that complaining about it happening to you is a sick joke.  There has been a huge amount of fuss on the Dem side about possible Russian influence in favour of the Republican party.  So what?  The Russians no doubt lobby just as other countries do.  It is doubtful that the Republicans received as much help from the Russians as the Dems do from the Jewish/Israel lobby.  One rule for us; another for the goyum.  Of course, the Israeli lobby hate the Russian government and people, for the heinous crime of refusing to allow neoliberal globalists to asset strip their country.  The Russians wanted Russia for the Russians and booted the oligarchs out in the early 2000s.  And for that they are hated.  And given the power of the Zionist lobby in US politics, the Americans have to turn Russia into an enemy to please their masters.  Never mind that this has nothing to do with the interests of any but a tiny proportion of the US public.

It looks increasingly likely that the Russians played no part in the 2016 election.  But never let the truth spoil a politically convenient lie.

Re: Election Meddling

Eh, the Russians should have just got Russian-Americans to do it, if they wanted to meddle. Register as the Russian-American Political Action Committee, lobby for pro-Russian candidates, and they would be untouchable.

Re: Election Meddling

Attorney General William Barr gave a speech calling for tech companies to give the government a 'backdoor' into all encrypted communications. Attorney General William Barr is very worried that he won't be able to access your private communications — so much so that he wants technology companies to give his Justice Department a backdoor for law enforcement. Attorney General William Barr wants to know how the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe got started. And he’s calling for back-up: from the US Attorney in Connecticut. Also on today’s episode: a security flaw on WhatsApp could have given hackers your private info, and some pride for your favorite animated aardvark’s teacher. This has William Barr’s fingerprints all over it – but if so, he may have just blown it. It very much appears that William Barr used his position as Attorney General to force the Southern Dostrict of New York to bring an end to its Trump-Cohen probe, because the SDNY was taking this case seriously, and no one but Barr was in a position to forcibly tell the SDNY otherwise.

Re: Election Meddling

SpaceNut,

The backdoor software started before former President Bush took office.  Anyone who thinks it's not being used is absurdly naive.  That said, unlike Democrats who only care about power and using the power of the state against their fellow Americans, most Republicans only care about people following our laws.

Not even the US AG can prevent Police and states from investigating people suspected of crimes.

This reeks of more disinformation spread by the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.

Re: Election Meddling

Some back doors on devices are still not there for the government law enforcement to make use of for criminal activity such as the Apple products. So long as its that use  I have no issue for law enformcement but when hackers make use of it thats another story....

In less than a decade I know that all of my protected accounts for personal data for credit have been hacked into from the use of back doors. I am sure all that is offered is credit protection for limit time periods....its a joke.

Re: Election Meddling

The Senate intelligence committee has released its report on foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Robert Mueller warned that Russian interference is still happening “as we sit here.”

State election officials are anxious and underfunded, some running systems with outdated software and scrounging for replacement parts off e-Bay.

Trouble in our right to vote seems around the corner as illinois-automatic-voter-registration-delays-worry-experts

Nearly 20 states have approved some form. But the delays in Illinois, and elsewhere, have elections experts and advocates worried, saying it’s meant missed opportunities for voters and less time to work out potential problems ahead of 2020. The challenges could offer a glimpse of what’s in store for other states trying out the increasingly popular voter reform.

Not just one but nearly half of the state count with issues still

Re: Election Meddling

Voter purging. Voter registration lists, also called voter rolls, are the gateway to voting because a citizen typically cannot cast a vote that will count unless his or her name appears on the voter registration rolls. State and local officials regularly remove—or purge—citizens from voter rolls. After a detailed study of the purge practices of 12 states, Voter Purges reveals that election officials across the country are routinely striking millions of voters from the rolls through a process that is shrouded in secrecy, prone to error, and vulnerable to manipulation. If the purge of the rolls is done hastily or by using ineffective practices, up to 1.5 million registered voters could be removed. The National Voter Registration Act requires states to conduct general voter list maintenance and remove ineligible voters from the rolls.
A number of states are purging the voter registries which were hack the last time but just how many is the question.
The Texas Secretary of State’s Office is in the midst of purging voter registration records, ostensibly to clear the files from records of people who might have died, moved or ineligible to vote.
California to Purge 1.5 Million Inactive Voter Registrations L.A. County has a registration rate of 112 percent of its citizen population.
Ohio Voter registration deadline for the Nov. 5, 2019 election is Oct. 7, 2019. Over 235,000 voter could be purged from the state voter rolls.
