The biggest news since November 3, 2020 has just happened. DOJ has indicted SmartMatic ~ the software provider that all US election tabulation machines are built on ~ for accepting bribes in violation of U.S. money laundering statutes, The intended purpose of the bribes? The money was to influence the awarding of contracts for SmartMatic equipped devices that have been proven to alter election results, and specifically for rigging elections in the Philippines.
This happened because of a conservative prosecutor in Miami who did what real prosecutors and law enforcement professionals do, he followed the evidence (I know, a novel concept). The charging documents reveal, at least four Smartmatic executives used “slush funds” and “fake contracts” to facilitate alleged bribes, masking the money transfer actions using fake email accounts.
The code word for the money they used? “Salsa,” so the documents have alleged.
One can only imagine that the DS Washington DC DOJ has blown their proverbial top. Watching what is going on with the propaganda machine is hysterical. America’s very own election fraud denier, Pravda America ~ also known as CNN ~ wrote, “Trump allies repeatedly peddled the lie that the company manipulated the results in 2020, despite the fact that its machines were only used in one California county that year.” (CNN, Marshall Cohen, 9/22/23) Talk about spin, perhaps the propaganda network should examine their souls for just a moment.
For its part in the saga, Smartmatic has filed defamation suits against anyone and everyone they can, engaging in what is called “lawfare.” Their strategy is to break the financial back of truth seekers. Named in the various lawsuits are Fox News, Newsmax, OAN, individual Fox journalists, Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, Mike Lindell.
It is shameful that the “news” media has shirked their First Amendment responsibility to seek truth and report on it. Instead, it is up to citizens to exercise their First Amendment right to speak truth to power, and that is what we have here.
Bautista, the recipient of the bribery money, was responsible for awarding $199 million in contracts to Smartmatic for about 94,000 voting machines and to handle the results of the Philippines’ presidential election in 2016. The machines are still in use, calling into question every election since.
To be clear, the criminal complaint against Bautista, that also names four un-indicted co-conspirators, doesn’t accuse Smartmatic of tampering with election results. But, the suit does open the door to discovery of election software, which is the subject of a common sense debate over hiding the so-called “proprietary code” from public inspection. A State Department report concluded that the 2016 elections in the Philippines “were generally free and fair.” However, unless 100% of paper ballots are compared with the machine count, and not a sample mind you, we will never know what damage has been done to the election process. You would think that CNN would applaud the idea of dispositive comparison.
The DOJ now appears to agree with election skeptics that SmartMatic equipped Machines rig elections through cyber methods, Just as cyber-warfare experts have been saying since about November 7, 2020.
Of course the likely comeback from the election Fraud denier crowd will be, “well SmartMatic only ran one county’s election in America in 2020, the Los Angeles county election!” That’s a silly dodge. When one buys a laptop from Acer, Dell, or Lenovo, they are buying a box from a company assembling components. The operating system of the computer, is Microsoft Windows. So whichever one of the three brands of computers, one buys, the inside is still the same operating system.
The same is true for election “management” equipment. The operating system inside is a SmartMatic software. Whether you buy Dominion, Hart, or ES&S, the operating system inside is the Smartmatic election management system. Also known as the “general election management system.” In 2018, Dominion, came up with their own name for it. Regardless of the re-branding and the name change, the package is the same; this is a Smartmatic operating system.
Editor’s afterword ~ The first I saw of this story (thanks to John) was a half hour long video by Patrick Byrne. You may or may not care to watch it, because he basically says the same things, but with a bit more detail and decidedly greater emphasis and enthusiasm. Said emphasis comes in the form of repetition, and in some cases, unflattering expletives about certain guilty parties in our government who not only allow this criminality, but they help to bring it to fruition.
It might help to watch it, though, in knowing that this particular happening is what might just trigger the avalanche of public awareness that our elections, and elections the world over, have been rigged by foreign interests…namely the cabal. The bad guys figured out how to infiltrate Human processes to their own advantage, and the sooner the general population understands that, the sooner we can kick these tyrants to the curb.
Patrick posted a caveat after his video went live ~
“The difference between being charged and indicted depends on who finds probable cause that you committed a crime. When you are charged, that means the district attorney found probable cause to prosecute you. When you are indicted, that means a grand jury found probable cause to prosecute you.
Both an indictment and a charge lead to a similar result, in that criminal charges are filed against you and a criminal case begins. Charges are more common than indictments, which are usually reserved for high-profile state felonies and federal cases (where the prosecutors are called United States attorneys instead of district attorneys).”
