To Ward breaking up high, medium, and low security traffic / data is "skulduggery."  In reality, it is good practice and very common.

Regarding delusional Trump supporters . . . .

Sidney Powell moves to dismiss Dominion lawsuit
https://www.axios.com/sidney-powell-dismiss-dominion-lawsuit-cf25a9bd-5aed-4908-959e-c5f9ea9aa425.html

Excerpt:

Powell argues in her motion that "no reasonable person" would conclude that her accusations of Dominion's election-rigging scheme "were truly statements of fact."

I’m reminded again of one of Goebbels’ scenes in the movie Downfall.

60 Minutes: Inside the prosecution of the Capitol rioters

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/capitol-riot-investigation-prosecution-60-minutes-2021-03-21/

Scott Pelley speaks with Michael Sherwin, the federal prosecutor who was leading the criminal investigation, the largest in U.S. history, into the assault on the Capitol.

Excerpt:

Scott Pelley: Has the role of former President Trump been part of your investigation?

Michael Sherwin:   It's unequivocal that Trump was the magnet that brought the people to D.C. on the 6th. Now the question is, is he criminally culpable for everything that happened during the siege, during the breach?

What I could tell you is this, based upon, again, what we see in the public record. And what we see in public statements in court. We have plenty of people-- we have soccer moms from Ohio that were arrested saying, "Well, I did this because my president said I had to take back our house." That moves the needle towards that direction. Maybe the president is culpable for those actions. But also, you see in the public record too militia members saying, "You know what? We did this because Trump just talks a big game. He's just all talk. We did what he wouldn't do."

Scott Pelley: In short, you have investigators looking into the president's role?

Michael Sherwin: We have people looking at everything, correct. Everything's being looked at.

Yup, Schmidt the controller in chief set Google well on its path away from "Don't be evil".

And again your stupidity is duly noted. Not only did I predict exactly this, I predicted it multiple times. How many leftist reporters have been fired since Xiden got elected? Hundreds? Leftists not doing so well in media now that everyone has moved on. Meanwhile how's that radio station setup to compete against right wing radio doing? Oh yeah, failed miserably, just like you every time you try to go toe to toe with me in an argument. Conservatives vastly outnumber leftists in this country, which is why there's such a strong audience for conservative platforms. Morons need not apply so needless to say, no Eejits. 

Schmidt is good at capitalism (and they only did a "rebrand" to "organizer of the world's information") and world wide advertising networks, which is fundamentally Google's business model (and Facebook, and Twitter, and ....)  Like most people who saw the ARPANET transform into the Internet, he realized that people don't need visas to cross over digital borders. It is more global AND more local, and as Trump missed, this type of global connectivity requires more deep and multifaceted type of engagement. This connectivity will only increase because of more technological changes. 

If you ask Americans whether they are conservative or liberal on social or economic perspectives, the answer is much more split.

The problem for the Republicans - they are not a very "big tent" party and have demographic headwinds against them. Trump's brand was like a dose of morphine. It was like a dose of hopium for a certain brand of populism, but it ignores reality of other economic trends, and shifted the overton window quickly versus what the values of the "mainstream" Republicans were historically. Most populist movements are only as "trendy" as they are able to capture attention.

Note that after the 2012 election, the Republicans noted this down, in what I thought was a very rational document: https://www.politico.com/news/2020/12/17/gop-ditches-election-postmortem-447091

Even in Texas, a traditionally "deep red state" things have shifted over the years: http://texaspolitics.utexas.edu/latest-poll

I remember when the Texas Democrats were so rare in the state legislature that they had to go to oklahoma to filibuster a "uniparty" quorum.

Trump to launch his own social media platform in three or four months. 

TBH, I think it will be filled with spam, bots, and automatically generated propaganda courtesy of the Saudi Royal family and various Russian troll farms who hope to sow discord. I doubt the Trump platform will get enough technical support to fix this stuff because complying with various laws and the sheer amount of automated traffic is practically impossible with naive techniques (see for example: https://blog.cloudflare.com/bot-attack-trends-for-jan-jul-2020/.  In practice you have to use federated learning techniques, but keep in mind you often need to compare notes with other services. This was how, for example, Facebook/Twitter/Youtube (and numerous other companies, practically the entire "free" internet) could for example, target state sponsored disinformation campaigns (that have been fingerprinted many times before) by sharing notes.

Wisconsin mandates an analog (paper) copy, thus said Wisconsin's elections commision information officer.

This is a old trick, called "double accounting": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-entry_bookkeeping

Tally up something once one way, and then tally it something up a second way. Then take a random representative sample and have them check the second (analog) copy, which admittedly is still laborious. I think a fully digital (online) system is probably possible with the maturation of strongly homomorphic encryption systems - I'd like to see this piloted somewhere like Estonia, which has tinkered with homomorphic social choice systems (which are also used as a basis for cryptocurrencies), where there is bound to be interference from their lovely neighbors the Russians.

How safe is your ballot?

“The beauty of Wisconsin’s system is that every vote is backed up with a paper record. There is not purely electronic voting in Wisconsin,” says Reid Magney, public information officer for the Wisconsin Elections Commission. “That allows us to audit the voting equipment after the election to verify its accuracy. No matter what happens, we have a paper record and we have ways to detect problems.”

On election night, as the polls close all over Wisconsin, local elections officials flip their voting machines into “reporting” mode, print out a long paper tape of the local vote tally and read it  aloud. Voters can witness this process, and then go onto their county’s website to verify the numbers.

After every election, state elections officials randomly select 5% of the polling places across the state to conduct hand-count audits. At about 200 polling places, clerks receive a message directing them to recount all the ballots by hand, twice. “And the numbers they come up with have to match the electronic results exactly,” Magney explains. “Our commission won’t certify any results on Dec. 1 until all those audits are completed.”

 

As for hacking of the state’s voter registration database — the type of hacking conducted by the Russians in 2016 — Wisconsin election officials work closely with cybersecurity experts and the Department of Homeland Security, Magney says.

Every local election clerk who logs into the statewide system is required to use multi-factor authentication. 

“So even if someone were able to steal a user’s credentials — their user name and password — they still wouldn’t have that physical key that you would need to put into your computer to access the system,” says Magney. 

Furthermore, because of the way the system is designed, a break-in in one locality would only give a hacker access to voting records for that locality. 

“So, for example, if someone managed to break into a small city clerk’s office somewhere and got into the system, they couldn’t affect Milwaukee. They couldn’t affect Madison. They could only affect voters that clerk has control over,” Magney explains. 

The Elections Commission aggressively tracks and audits all movement within the system, he adds: “If we start seeing people being deleted or changed we can flag that and we can roll back all those changes.”

Last year, the Elections Commission instituted a requirement that everyone who uses the system must have a computer that meets certain cybersecurity requirements, an up-to-date operating system, and anti-virus software.

Because of the combination of high-tech and old-school protections, “I feel confident that our equipment is safe from hacking,” says Magney. 

“It would literally take the team from Oceans 11 — it would take people with both burglary and advanced hacking skills to get in get out and make changes and not have anything go wrong that would indicate there was a problem,” Magney adds.

“There are people out there who say we are not doing enough; there are other steps we could take,” he concedes. “But when you look at the system in its totality there are too many different layers of security that go around our voting systems to leave it vulnerable.”

Information warfare

Hacking isn’t limited to computer systems: Disinformation from foreign actors is commonly referred to as “social hacking” for its manipulation of social behavior.

“How do you (fight) against messages that say, because of COVID, this voting center has been shut down?” Gullixson said. “Those levels of mis- or disinformation could be one of the stronger negative drivers in people voting this year.”

Gullilxson’s background is in election administration and shortly after the 2016 election, she said that mis- or disinformation led many voters to call the elections office confused, asking questions that were fueled by disinformation circulating on social media.

The FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has already issued an alert urging Americans to be on the lookout for new websites or changes to existing websites made by foreign or malicious actors with the intention of spreading such misinformation.

“Information warfare has been around as long as warfare has been around,” Gullixson said. 

In fact, in 1985, the Russians started a disinformation campaign dubbed Operation INFEKTION that aimed to make the world believe the United States had created AIDS, a conspiracy theory that is still active today.

So far in 2020, Russian, Chinese and Iranian hackers have been caught by Microsoft in attempts to target both the campaigns of President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

China has also been caught by Facebook using fake accounts to speak on election matters. And just this month, Facebook and Twitter removed dozens of Russian accounts aimed at dissuading left-leaning voters from voting for Biden.

So how does one combat this type of warfare?

It starts with voters.

“There are growing efforts to try to tackle that but it starts with the voter realizing they could be manipulated in that way,” Gullixson said. 

The FBI has shared similar advice, saying that voters should make sure to get their election information from their state and county officials instead of Facebook pages, as they could very well be hacked or fake pages. 

Despite what may seem like a lot of doom and gloom, Gullixson and her colleagues are hopeful that the attention these issues have been getting will help shape policy around voting for the next 15 years for the better.

We just have to make sure we can get through it unscathed, she said.

I've personally met the founder of the most secure voting system ever devised. Received tens of millions in funding back in 1999-2000. Built the system, demonstrated it was bullet proof. No one wanted to buy it. Political hacks like fraudulent systems

This was long before bitcoin, but in point of fact he'd essentially designed Blockchain. Glad I didn't invest.

Ahh yes is it not ironic that the common man will take down this socialist utopian dream. It is coming big E..It is their country, their dreams, their money. 

I find it quite enjoyable to interact with such people quite refreshing when their fears and anger are put to rest. Hope and dreams are hard to harness and control...and wonderous to be part of when UNCHAINED.

You didn't say CEO.

Yes, a hotel employee wrote internet as internet was being provided. No proof the election machines were connected there.

Whatever, the election is over, you lost. 

"Release the Kraken!"  Oh wait! That was line was runny BS for idiots to drink up with a straw.

Keep being a pedantic twit, it suits you. I'm not going to write novels here because you're too ignorant to understand facts. Everyone (not named you, or your multitude of sock puppets) knows a corporation doesn't "speak" but has "spokespeople" especially the CEO. You lose, again. I have better things to do than set your sorry ass straight all the time. Maybe best to put you back on ignore where your idiocy belongs.

Odd commentary given my forecast towards Biden's survival as president, let us take that a step further. Biden is figure head only, not capable of handling himself let alone the enormity of the US issues. As foretold he would not survive the immigration crisis, today it was announced Harris will take the lead, Biden was not even given a chance it intervene/make sense of what has been created.

Harris will only exhaburate this issue, not only is this issue controversial.. she herself was a controversy arrogant with no directional foundation. Let it all play out, while the progressive left has manufactured a presidential victory the cost will be their final chapter...

Is it not funny or perhaps actually cosmic, Donald J Trump speaker of the house...a personal not i would not like to be in his sights when that happens...Can you imagine him wielding that power...or perhaps better said not taking advantage/leverage of that power?

He is the POTUS.  Childish media will mock him for stumbling on steps just as they did with trumps inability to drink water or walk down a ramp. Feel good media for the losers.

 

Trump will not be speaker of the house, get that fantasy out of your head. For one, trump would never want a lower role - his ego would prevent that. Secondly, he will probably be in jail.

This current administration and and the democratic leadership will make every attempt possible to implicate Trump in some kind of illegal money transaction's in regards to his taxes make no mistake. The upside would be the prosecutors do not have a clue as to what to look for...Only a highly skilled financial officer would be able to dig deep enough to connect the dots. To that point it is not beyond this party in any fashion to go around the court and open Trump's taxes to outside investigation...lol the last 4 yrs should demonstrate just how desperate they can be along with how far they are willing to go.

I do like watching Adam Schiff being kicked to the curb however...the darling supreme leader of the demo cult...now longer has a home anywhere. Even California doesnt want to protect him or be associated with the guy..
