ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINE TAMPERING, FRAUD: MIDTERM 'X FACTOR'
• Every ATM machine in America gives customers a printed receipt -- so why can't electronic voting machines?
• Lack of voter-verified paper trail just an oversight -- or a calculated part of a plan?
GET POLITICAL w/ VIC LIVINGSTON
As mainstream media repeats the prevailing wisdom -- that Dems are about to suffer huge midterm losses -- no entity appears to be addressing the likelihood of vote count irregularities stemming from electronic voting...
... and, in most districts, the continued absence of a requirement that electronic machines create a voter-verifiable "paper trail" to facilitate recounts and instill confidence in the electoral process.
The issue was starkly drawn in a Hollywood movie a few years back, "Man of the Year" starring Robin Williams. In that flick, a corrupt voting machine executive who's a heavy contributor to a political party rigs an election, as covert operatives who drive big black SUVs and talk into their sleeves wreak havoc upon those who try to expose the fraud.
In the end, justice prevails -- but remember, this is Hollywood. Ironically, mainstream political pundit Chris Matthews, who hardly ever discusses the dangers of electronic voting on his show, makes a cameo appearance.
But it's not just the machines that raise concerns. Out in fly-over country, hard-right, Sarah-loving tea-bagger pitchfork people appear to be heavily represented among poll watchers and public safety officers with access to voting machine storage areas. With scant oversight of the vote count or the servicing of these machines, which use proprietary software, there's ample opportunity for chicanery.
Ever hear of "Tempest" technology? It's how government intelligence officials or their operatives, private contractors, can wirelessly, externally invade computer systems -- to extract, insert, or, possibly, maliciously tamper with stored or inputted data.
I know this happens; it has been done to me, an apparently (and extrajudicially) "targeted individual," many times. I've written many articles about how such technologies are being used to spy on, censor -- and possibly frame -- American citizens:
With mainstream media AWOL on the subject, those who would subvert democracy by tampering with voting technology or process probably stand a good chance of getting away with it.
WAKE UP, DISILLUSIONED DEMS -- OBAMA IS RESISTING A PENTAGON-HOMELAND SILENT COUP
What else could Obama have meant when POTUS remarked to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, "We have done things that people don't even know about" -- ?
Listen up, Democrats: General McChrystal was doing sedition. SecDef Gates wanted to keep him on, nonetheless. Obama courageously said, "NO." McChrystal "resigns" and Gates resignation is now pending.
Dems, do the math -- and turn out en masse on Tuesday. Also, read this and stop a silent genocide in America:

PS -- When will congressional hearings expose the apparent fact that a significant percentage of anti-Obama political comments to web sites emanate from taxpayer-funded "information systems" defense contractors working for U.S. mil-intel?
