Hey Brad, I really appreciate the hair on fire. This country is soooooooooooo asleep! My daughter and I think we'll be going to the National Conferance on Media Reform, too bad your not speaking. Your the expert on voting integrity that could lead to many good reforms. On your subject...move on and pfaw...except for Palast, not too much in their department. Still, I want my daughter to see people organizing reform. Amy, Moyers, and Naomi Klein should be informative and inspiring. Seriously other than voting integrity, this is the flag to rally around, media reform! There will even be members of the FCC there, who didn't vote for easing consolidation rules!!!
Ya know there are separate workshops spaces available, maybe you and Bev. You two are tops! Please consider, for the disenfranchised wll of THE PEOPLE.
Because this ain't no dress rehearsal. They can't win fair and square, so please show people how they cheat! (with the supreemies help now)
Oh yeah, screw you silver platter word game scalia the torturer, YOU SHOULD BE IMPEACHED!!!
That's not the sterling record I'm looking for. Your 60 minutes says it all!

The Perfect Gift for the Careful, Discriminating Hacker...
Now that says it all and says it well, about the commercialization of electiondom.
It is soooo Ferengi isn't it:
They and their culture are characterized by a mercantile obsession with profit and trade and their constant efforts to swindle people into bad deals.
Stalin Diebold was the first Ferengi evoting machine company ...
Ferengi DRE the next generation ... and Brad, ferengi Tony Krvaric, GOP mover and shaker for the corrupt electiondom gang down in San Diego county, is just what you portrayed that gang as:
Online research reveals that Krvaric is the co-founder of Fairlight, a band of software crackers which later evolved into an international video and software piracy group that law enforcement authorities say is among the world’s largest such crime rings. After co-founding Fairlight in Sweden, Krvaric established U.S. operations for the organization, including an arm headquartered in Southern California—a major center for the computer and video game industry.
(Raw Story, emphasis added). Can you believe it, a guru of all things hacking heading up the San Diego GOP election crime gang.
San Diego home of the BIG BROTHER evoting machine hacker network.

Also, don't forget that Floridiot and I have made the link, via circumstantial evidence, between the lone evoting machine inspector S.S. (a.k.a. Shawn Southworth), godbrotheruncle to the Maytag repairman ... and
soul sole inspector of ehackus epluribus eunum evoting machines made in Bullshitistan (the eastern province of Amurka)!

Here we go again:
NC robo-calls target black households with bogus voting registration information:
Stop messing with my primary! Something stinks to high heaven and the state attorney general should look into this. Calls are going out to black households that are incredibly similar to calls received in Ohio and Virginia passing along misinformation from a "a stentorian voice reminiscent of James Earl Jones" calling himself "Lamont Williams." Chris Kromm of the Institute for Southern Studies' blog Facing South has the scoop.

RE: post #3, 4
So, here is the history, for those who give a shit:
In the late 70's a young hippie astronomer was cut off from his government grant. He worked for a networked astronomical group in California that shared large telescopes at major observatories, and charged astronomers for their time.
They offered him a shit job of finding out what was wrong with the accounting software that billed the astronomers. Cliff Stohl took the job cause he and his babe were going to starve otherwise.
He found a cracker was coming in and fucking the billing program up, and so he followed that hacker and ended up in a drama that drug him thru the NSA, Pentagon, Air Force, CIA, and other government "secure" computer networks and systems. (He is now a millionaire security dood.)
Anyway, that shocked the "impenetrable computer system experts" and they then began to hire crackers (now known as hackers, a perversion, hackers were originally good guys) to work for the government.
Problem is this: when the government becomes corrupt it has the crackers do bad things to the good guys ... America.
That is how the San Diego US Attorney got axed and how a cracker got to be head of the GOP there.
He was put there, and there are others in other places, to make sure that the elections are won by those who will not force the military oil complex to do a military coup. Like any mafia, they do not like blood all over the place because it is not good for biz.
As long as they can rule by deception and crime, they will not do a nazi military takeover and kill, maim, and destroy hundreds of thousands out in the open.
As I have posted here for years, read "The Cuckoo's Egg" by Clifford Stohl.

I still think they're going into the County/State servers and voting for the registered (indy or R) non-voters, raking off just enough as not to be noticed. That seems to be why they are so eager to register you when you go to get your license. (in Florida anyway). It gives them the numbers they need as to not look fishy.
Who gets to go back and check after the election and
live to investigate this?
Use your imagination as to how they are getting into them to make the changes.
My theory is right up the power cord.
The motive is clear and their actions deplorable enough that they should have had their asses kicked out a long time ago.
The American voter is not that ignorant as to let this go on IMO.
If I'm wrong, oh well...sue me

Monday night, I was standing outside an eatery in bum-fuck Florida waiting to get a table and I overheard the name Jeremiah Wright...WTF?
I turn around and two late 50-ish (white) women were giggling, so I moved in closer just in time to hear "they're using him to bring down his numbers"
So you tell me who is paranoid.

More questions I have is, How big of an insider is Mr. Wright anyway?
How close was he to the top back in the day?
Was that guy was put up there by the Hillaryites (innies) to give it to Obama?
Watch the press club interview again, that guy couldn't have did more damage if he had tried.
It looks like a hit job to me now.

Speaking of paranoia Krvaric (see my post #3) would not have to buy a machine on eBay, because he could go directly to Haas and get them, do the sleep over thingy, provide inside access about them to his cracker criminal gang, and later hack anywhere in the country where those machines are used.
And how many other election officials are crackers (now known as hackers)?
Can't you hear the dKos panty waists saying "Whoa ... that is soooo paranoid dooood ..."?

Hey Dredd and Floridiot, you guys interested in doing a Brad Blog workshop? June 5th seems to be the voting information day. If they are serious about reform they should be aware of what you guys know! It would be really great to see Brad Bloggers there!

Kos are innies Dredd, so you can bet on us being chided about 'Theories'.
And yep, that's why I said a few days back that our election system is like a sieve, soo many possibilities...all we can hope for is that two of them "crackers" (boy isn't name fitting) accidentally hit the same place and make a big enough boo-boo that can't be explained away as a "glitch"
I'd sure like to be inside the voting records system a little before and on election day to watch for activity.
Whoever has the 'best' technology wins!!!, screw the voters.

SO glad you mentioned the 2008 NCMR conference in JUNE as I have been trying to get BRAD (and some of our luminary others) THEIR OWN PLANERY session, there.
I called YOLANDA HIPPENSTEELE at FREEPRESS and her assistant JORDAN and they SEEMED open to the suggestion; even fans of BRAD/ however, I have not received any updates on the status of this suggestion, despite many phone calls. BRADBLOGGERS: can you give her a call to follow up? Could use some help:
Would be GREAT if we could get BRAD/ STEVE FREEMAN/ BEV HARRIS/ PAUL LEHTO/ JONATHAN SIMON/ BOB FITRAKIS/ HARVEY WASSERMAN/ MARK ADAMS/ ANDI NOVICK/ et al in front of 10,000 people WHO CARE before the upcoming November BOONDOGGLE.

Voting machines are a diversionary tactic. America is controlled by an extremely wealthy elite and powerful lobby groups. It is they who select the horses, promote them (via the controlled media, choose the election issues in what we call an election process. Only the voters can perceive the subtle differences between the candidates. Any one of them will foster the agenda of the elite which includes, dismantling the constitution, destruction of the currency, continued military action in Iraq, acceleration of the North American Union which includes a new immigration bill and amnesty for illegal Mexicans. Globalization really means one world gov't which is the direction we are moving. Their agenda includes a drastically reduced standard of living for Americans which will be accompanied by mass job relocations and massive unemployment. America is defacto bankrupt and through it's economic demise it will become easy to manipulate the public into giving up soveriegnty.
Once they culled the herd of candidates to put Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich out of the game via media manipulation, hacked voting machines become irrelevant. The elite would be delighted with any of the three remaining candidates. American's will suffer under whoever wins.
The more they can divide and distract Americans with unimportant issues the easier it is to push through the real agenda. Flawed voting machines are just one more distraction to draw your attention away from what is really important. Stay asleep America it is already too late. You know what they say "You sleep - you lose" Hasta la vista America.

The San Diego GOP chair (acquaintance of the election official Haas there) went to one of those in late 1987 or 1988 ... today it would be called a 'hacker convention' ... they called them 'copy parties' two decades ago. They would get together and hack computers of various sorts.

And our EI ancestor, and the soooo yesterday government was saying this in 1988 while the GOP chairman was hacking major commerical butt:
4.13 Summary Of Problem Types
4.13.1 Insufficient Pre-election Testing
4.13.2 Failure to Implement an Adequate Audit Trail
4.13.3 Failure to Provide for a Partial Manual Recount
4.13.4 Inadequate Ballots or Ballot-Reader Operation
4.13.5 Inadequate Security and Management Control
4.13.6 Inadequate Contingency Planning
4.13.7 Inadequate System Acceptance Procedures
Concern had been heightened by a series of articles published in the summer of 1985 in the New York Times. The articles cited statements by two computer experts reporting that a computer program widely used for vote-tallying was vulnerable to tampering. Several elections were identified in which losing candidates claimed that it would be possible to fraudulently alter the computer programs that were used in their contests.
Don't it make your brown nose blue modern day election official stars? You guys are saving democracy cause it can't save itself.
Just like these doods, Darb and Veb's Incredible Journey.

You know what that would mean?
That if the vote totaling system from the counties and the registration system connect all together, you could alter anything from any DMV terminal IN THE STATE.
And if that connects to Fatherland Security, well, there you go.

Holy shit Dredd *****JACKPOT*****
Yep, Raw Story broke it. I found the guy's website and took it a bit further. And it goes to deep darkness the 6 of 7 must fathom.
But we have more work to do. We must follow his hacker gang and see where they have been working ... (In Florida as Floridiot surmises, Homeland insecurity, etc?) ... remember that as early as the late 70's one of these guys, from Europe, ransacked the NSA, CIA, Pentagon, Military Bases, etc. and went in and out of them at will. (book: The Cookoo's Egg, by Clifford Stohl).
If they put backdoors in place, then that gang can do anything with the '08 election. I suspect, since they want Hillary in, they we in NH and Pennsylvania.
It is bigger than Floridiot's and my expose of the military oil complex's participation in the way the evoting machines are inspected and constructed.
Bigger than the Clint Curtis story. It is the mother of all hacker infiltration stories. And it is not theory, it is fact.
We have a lot of work to do. Yeah, it would be good to get Floridiot there and I would chip in too ... but is it paranoid to fear getting all of us in one place at the same time?

Lemme say this again Dredd, if it's for the good of our Democracy, it's worth our life.
Many of people before us have fought and fell for it (some literally 'fell for it' recently), a couple more won't matter.
But if it accomplishes the desired result it's for the good of man.
In other words, I aint scared of them fuckers dood, they're most likely a bunch of cowards that hide behind the flag and the dollar bill anyway.

Ok, lets roll.
The GOP chair Strider, is a founder of the infamous Fairlight group:
Fairlight (FLT) is a warez and demo group initially involved in the Commodore demoscene, and in cracking to illegally release games for free, since 1987. In addition to the C64, Fairlight has also migrated towards the Amiga and later the PC. Fairlight was founded during the Easter holiday in 1987 by Strider and Black Shadow, both ex-members of West Coast Crackers (WCC). This "West Coast" was the west coast of Sweden, so Fairlight was initially a Swedish group, which later became internationalized. The name was taken from the Fairlight CMI synthesizer which Strider saw Jean Michel Jarre use on some of his records. Strider is nowadays a naturalized USA citizen [and GOP chair and treasurer in the California GOP]
... [now to the infamous part] ...
Several high ranking members of the group were caught on April 21, 2004, 8 months after the group returned from their temporary "retirement" that began on June 9, 2003 and ended on August 30, in an FBI operation called Operation Fastlink.
Police forces from eleven countries were involved, arresting about 120 people and seizing more than 200 computers (including 30 servers). One server from the U.S. raid contained 65,000 pirated titles which were alleged to be in the archive repository of the group.
The operation was coordinated by the FBI, the British National Hi-Tech Crime Unit, the German Bundeskriminalamt (BKA) and the Business Software Alliance, and took place in 27 U.S. states.
(Wiki, emphasis added). Crack between the lines.
