“We are not to expect to be translated from despotism to liberty in a featherbed.”

~ Thomas Jefferson, Letter to the Marquis de Lafayette, April 2, 1790

The report of the Dominion voting machines forensic examination in Antrim County will be released this morning. The code will be redacted. This is the case where thousands of votes were switched from Trump to Biden.

The radical Michigan Secretary of State said it was a ‘human error,’ but forensic computer scientists say the machines are responsible.

THE SOFTWARE THEY USE IS CURRENTLY UNDER ATTACK

Dominion uses an Internet technology firm that was hacked and crashed Google, YouTube, et al. Dominion uses SolarWinds software, according to their webpage as first reported by The Epoch Times.

The SolarWinds hack allowed foreign actors to gain access to the US Commerce Department and, reportedly, the Treasury Department.

Malicious actors are currently exploiting SolarWinds as of 9:22 ET.

According to FireEye, a cybersecurity firm, the hackers inserted malicious code into legitimate software updates for SolarWinds Orion software. The code allowed the attacker to gain remote access to the victims’ systems.

People, we cannot believe anyone until we see without own eyes! They all lie and it is up to US to DEMAND this country shape up according to the Constitution and the rule of law, not these idiots that think they are so above the founding of this country. If WE, the People do not demand all this stop, it won’t! Even then, we will have to show them that we mean business or they will keep up this farce and take us into communism/socialism and to heck with freedoms and all that matters that is real and true!…ALL the rest is rubbish and they thrive on all the rubbish they can cause!…IT IS OUTRAGEOUS AND WE HAVE TO STOP THEM…WE..US…THE PEOPLE!!! WAKE UP PATRIOTS AND ALL AMERICANS!! LET’S GET BACK TO THE GREAT NATION WE ONCE WERE AND PUT THE LOW LIFE LEFTERS IN THEIR PLACE…AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SWAMP AND GET ON WITH REAL BUSINESS, NOT THEIR RUBBISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All these Vulnerabilities are primarily due to one thing, Scripting languages. Scripts are nothing more than “executable code”. Originally it was the use of VBScript and that was found to have many vulnerabilities. Later Java came out and had the advantage of cross-platform capability and the development of JavaScript for websites soon emerged. All the scripting languages have the capability to insert code and thus corrupt systems. One has to wonder why there hasn’t been any effort in engineering a more secure method of transferring data and preventing intrusions. At the time of writing this there are consistent APT backdoor attacks in the US, currently from Ukraine. There are also APT attacks from the US to China and Taiwan.

Why would the greatest people (in their own minds) to ever walk the face of the earth use such wide open (made in China?) software applications? Hmm…so…hmm.

FireEye is a great resource to visually track real-time hacking attempts across the globe.
