Foreign company now fully owns U.S. elections reporting software

This might not be a big deal in the end, but it sure has an odd vibe that a foreign company now owns the software used to report precinct level election results in the United States. BlackBoxVoting.org reports:

In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world’s dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA’s dominant election results reporting company. 

When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com. 

What could possibly go wrong? Well, consider the following.

the bad news is that this centralizes one middleman access point for over 525 jurisdictions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. And growing.

It doesn’t just centralize the database, it centralizes it under the authority of a foreign company regulated by a foreign government. Like I said, maybe this isn’t news worthy, but there is just something about it all that feels uncomfortable.

Am I alone?

    This is right in line with Revelation 13, why is it so hard to believe? I have heard for ages believers say, “We know who wins, we have read the back of the book” and I agree. However, there are many more chapters before we get to the end and this is just one more piece of the puzzle. The 2012 election will be a crazy one, however I predict Obama will be re-elected either by a uninfrom public or by fraud, either way we face another 4 years…then only God knows according to his plan. Be prepared.

    Couple this with noise that one of the major voting machine manufacturers is a muslim that donated to Obama and has connections with SEIU and you know how Harry Reid won in NV in 2010 and what is a growing takeover of the entire election process by the left.

    It’s high time conservative states begin the investigations that Congress refuses to do if they hope to protect the integrity of their elections.

      Of course I say this before Cass Sunstein gets his way and has “conspiracy theorizing” deemed illegal lol.

        Is it true that the company who is going to count the votes are owned by George Zoros, the big supporter of President Obama . Will some say if this is true or not?

    Nothing yet to worry about? Are you serious? You need to worry about anything and everything these people do. They know they are headed for a big defeat. We need to do whatever we can and be thankful this has come out now and not in August.

    Your kidding right? I guess this just goes along with Obama releasing our missle technology to Russia and China…what a bunch of brain-dead idiots…

    No Iam NOT talking about Obama…I am talking about you and me, we American citizens…to allow such traitors and fools to run our government in our name.

    I guess we could always ask Eric Holder to do something…no wait, the less he does, the better!

    What about the secretary/director of homeland security…no, same problem, remember Fast and Furious…

      We did NOT “allow” traitors to run the country. We had our hands tied, what could we do about it

    What this means since Italy is returning to fascism, is that Hussain will win the 2012 election no matter who we vote for! Can’t someone take this to court and stop the sale?

      That may all be true but a lot of good people are going to suffer because of the bible thumpers.

    The States should all go back to the paper ballot!! This would be our only hope for an honest election! I, along with the rest of you am aware that God is always in control and that God’s will is above all!! I like many others including my retired military brothers who took an oath to defend our country will not accept another 4 years from the socialists of this administration destroying our country!! This would be an act of war on our Christian Faith!!

    The election is a fraud in many ways.
    Romeny is not a repulican. Actually neither is Paul. Paul is a libertarian but wouldn’t garner votes on that ticket. He won’t run on a 3d ticket. He tried and it won’t work.
    Romney is a pure democrat, changed his coat and lies about the many issues that are dear to conservatives. If he had changed on one or two issues , it might be believable, not all of the them.
    His health care bill is what Obama used to draft his and Romneys advisors went to DC to help draft the one everybody is upset about. If Romney gets elected and he probably will with democrat votes (more democrats voted in NH than reps!
    No one has asked him what kind of health care bill he will give us after he repeals the Obama one. I’d like to hear him stammer over that question!
    Obama has been barred by at least 10 states because he can’t show birth proof. So without those states the dems need someone to take his place. That person is Romney. Please make everyone aware of this!!!!

      Democrats often vote in Republican primaries as a means of choosing their opponent so I would not assume it will result in Romney being elected.

      Also, Obama has not been barred in any states. Each of those state claim they are looking into the the issue but none have made ineligibility official and I wouldn’t hold my breath they will (remember, politics is a deadly sport, literally.) Each state official involved will discover a extremely important personal reason to declare him eligible ;-)

    Having been a poll-watcher for elections in 1964, when the ballot was the size of an unfolded newspaper sheet and votes were marked with a little stamp that printed “X,” and having since been polling place “inspector” (head of the board–didn’t inspect anything) in 5 consecutive elections with Ink-A-Vote ballots, I have strong feelings about how votes are counted. At my first training for the polling place, I mentioned hand-counting, and the instructor sneered and made some disparaging comment about “rigged voting.” Clearly he has never seen the documentary “Hacking Democracy” that demonstrates how easily one person can change the votes in machine counting.

    There are close to 5,000 precincts in LA County, however, requiring over 19,000 temporary employees. The inspector is rarely acquainted with the workers he/she has on election day and sometimes doesn’t even know the workers until they show up at the poll. So the idea that a conspiracy to “fix” results in that precinct is irrational.

    But million$ have been spent to purchase the software and all the fancy, hackable machines, and the counties aren’t going to scrap them. So I propose the following: The poll workers open the ballot boxes at close of voting and count the votes as they did in 1964 and phone in the results. They could hand them to the media also. Then they pack up the ballots and transfer to the central counting center as they do now for a machine count. If the results differ by, say, 2%, then do a publicly observed recount for that precinct. This would provide a double check on both forms of counting. Yes, it takes a bit longer, but aren’t accurate results more important than fast ones? The corrupt politicians will move for speed, but I think conscientious Americans would prefer accuracy.

    CAN THIS BE STOPPED, CONGRESS OR TAKE IT TO COURT? WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON, WHAT COUNTRY ARE WE TURNING INTO, I FOR ONE DON’T LIKE THE SMELL OF THIS, THIS MUST BE STOPPED NOW?

    The battle, is not to the strong alone [Eccl. 9:11]; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, that we may not have an election. it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains, the mountians and the sea shores! If the war is inevitable then let it come! I repeat, let it come..It is in vain, to extenuate the matter. some may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace [Jer. 6:14]. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our enemy’s are already in the field! Why stand we here idle [Matt. 20:6]? What is it that you wish? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

    I have changed a few lines of Mr. Henry’s as he was addressing a group of the founding fathers, but i think it is fitting in light of currant times to present his address to everyone on a more personal basis. I hope these changes does not offend anyone; but if it does; I really don’t give a damn, it is the way i feel. S.C.
