We used to have less corrupt media, but today the media is full far-left and very dishonest.

Sadly, the article itself is very misleading. The LA Sec of State has to issue bids for state contracts in accordance with LA state law. Ardoin is just following the law. The RFP is 126 pages. Among the requirements are auditing capabilities, printed voter verification at time of voting in a private format, disclosures of ownership and foreign ownership. All places the company has voting machines both domestic and foreign. And a nice big section on security, cybersecurity and mandatory notifications (starts page 52). Oh and on the very first page titled 'Background' it sates that all 64 parishes in LA currently use Dominion machines. Ardoin and the rest of the state wide elected officials are REbublicans except for the Dem Goobernor Lockdown. And the state elected REbublicans are not Cassidy RINOs. One can suspect that Dominion has a lot to prove before it receives the sates contract.

Gotta' have those Dominion machines if you want to be assured of winning an election. Apparently these machines will do what the dims need and can't easily be proved after they pull the thumb drive after the polls close. Democrats..........kings of voter fraud with new methods that are like kids with new toys !!

I don't believe Dominion will get it, they lack creditability and probably could not meet the security requirements. These systems must and should be stand alone with NO internet capabilities. It's a contract bid that went out to everyone. Dominion has the right to bid on it and it does not mean that Dominion will get it. Word of wisdom. Gateway Pundit is one of my favorite sites but their titles are at times somewhat misleading.

I began discussions with my SOS in Louisiana back in 2016 regarding the use of Dominion machines. At the time, all I knew was that they were a Canadian based company that had donated $2,250,000 worth of machines to the Clinton Foundation (the Delian project). I tried to reach the current SOS right after this election. They would not respond to my phone call or email, so I went and sat in their office until an employee of his came out to talk to me. Their main mantra is "our machines are not online". (This could actually be true because our machines are ancient, and perhaps need to be upgraded to be capable of responding to modern vote theft methods.) The fact that Dominion would not be excluded after all the information that has been uncovered on that company is unfathomable. From what I have read, the existing RFP was written SPECIFICALLY for Dominion’s Smartmatic. They are the only ones that can fulfill the RFP exactly as written. That is a tried and true method to direct who will get a lucrative government contract. Well we all know how much difference it made in Georgia to have a republican Secretary of State! These companies don't care who they have to "work with" to get a $100 million contract. How many years would we have to pay workers for a hand count of paper ballots to come up to that amount? I am quite sure it would not take weeks for an answer, as was the case with some states that were using Dominion machines. The committee meeting to discuss this at the state capitol was supposed to be Friday, but was postponed due to cold weather. They will not be doing this without citizens watching. The question remaining is, will the press be observing and reporting to those who are ignorant of the plan? The next question is, how many Louisiana citizens will see no purpose in ever voting again, if our state government is so corrupt that they purchase these machines.

All LA has to do is order a large quantity of blue indelible ink, distribute it to all polling places, make sure only US citizens are voting, and observe each person has dipped an index finger into the ink well after voting, then press his still-wet index finger against his ballot to authenticate it. Then have the military take custody of the ballots and send to a for-real vote-counting center where humans under armed-guard are tabulating the votes. Make sure the vote-tabulating equipment is not connected to the internet and is on US soil.

Here in the United States of Dominion, you will be able to talk about the election corruption for a few more months. After that, if you speak about election fraud, you'll start to lose bank accounts, jobs, etc. Watch Yuri Bezmenov's four stages of ideological subversion. China has accomplished it along with the elected Marxists and MOST Republicans here in the USD. And BTW, the interview was recorded in 1984. The old United States of America no longer exists, period.

The voter fraud will only get worse if the 2020 results are allowed to stand. The left will be emboldened knowing they are untouchable, and the wretched media will run cover. To win a presidential election, all the left will need to do is commandeer the big cities in the swing states (Detroit, Phila, Atlanta, etc.) where the mayors and police chiefs are corrupt, and simply keep counting until they have what they need. The courts, state legislatures, and Marxist FBI have done nothing about the crimes committed on Nov 3, 2020. If something isn't done, it's only going to get worse. We need a miracle.

Firm That Owns Dominion Voting Systems, Staples Street Capital, Received $400 Million From Swiss Bank Account Funded by Communist Chinese Gov & Companies Less Than A Month Before Election. Dominion Voting Systems operates voting machines in 28 states. “UBS Securities is a Swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” states the report. Other connections between Dominion Voting Systems and the Chinese government have also emerged in recent weeks, including the company’s Core Infrastructure Manager of Information Technology, Andy Huang, who previously worked for China Telecom, which is “wholly run by the Chinese government,” reported the National Pulse. Andy Huang, who serves as Core Infrastructure Manager of Information Technology at Dominion Voting Systems, previously worked at China Telecom. China Telecom is wholly run by the Chinese government, and has been identified by the U.S. Department of Defense as having collaborated with the country’s military for over two decades. Similarly, the Department of Justice flagged the firm for “concerns that China Telecom is vulnerable to exploitation, influence, and control by the Chinese government” and how “the nature of China Telecom’s U.S. operations” provide “opportunities for Chinese state-actors to engage in malicious cyber activity enabling economic espionage and disruption and misrouting of U.S. communications.” Read more at The National Pulse.

Paper ballots (blacken the oval type) are reliable and are not pron to manipulation. Computers, on the other hand, can be programed to produce whatever results you want. If you connect them to a network, anybody that can "hack" into them can produce whatever results they want. On top of that, they are expensive. Paper ballot are the way to go, with verification of the person casting them.

Pollak: Secret Republican Vote to

Posted by ragu 3/18/2021 1:08:23 AM Post Reply
The House Republican Conference vote on Wednesday to restore earmarks was a betrayal of the voters, and undermined one of the remaining legacies of the Tea Party. The vote was close, 102-84, but that is no consolation, especially as it was by secret ballot, preventing voters from holding their representatives accountable.f Republicans do not hold a revote, they can expect conservatives to stay home in 2022. They will have blown their chance to retake the House — and will deserve to lose.

The $3.5 billion is tucked away onto page 613 of the American Rescue Plan. While a paltry sum to a megabillionaire such as Gates, and paling in comparison to the bill’s other provisions, many of the billionaire critics would object to Gates being gifted with billions of dollars that he will nominally use for international projects.

Significant legislative attempts are underway in multiple U.S. states, including key battleground states, to roll back major changes in voting rules and regulations to various pre-2020 status quo antes. The efforts come after an historically chaotic election process that has left millions of Americans doubtful of election fairness, security, transparency and accountability. Changes to election rules — some of them enacted prior to 2020 and others put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic last year — have included expansive mail-in voting, expanded early voting, relaxation of verification rules, and extensions to ballot receipt deadlines. Those rules likely contributed to a
