Bev Harris:, Joseph Stalin "Those Who Cast the Votes Decide Nothing- Those who Count the Votes decide everything"


IAHF List:

Please see this ad which ran in New Hampshire's Manchester Union Leader newspaper 2 days before the Primary:  It was an attempt to get poll watchers to watch the polls.

If you watched the New Hampshire primary results come in as I did, you would have noticed that the distribution of votes remained constant, with no change or fluctuation over the whole state, all night. In the real world- that doesn't happen. In the real world we could have expected sudden surges as one candidate pulled ahead as votes from some towns were tallied, but that didn't happen- the percentages stayed constant- a sure sign that the fix was in from the beginning.Jim Condit clearly spells out the problem we’re facing at Especially see these key articles in his archives

In the town of Sutton, at least 3 people voted for Ron Paul, but their votes were not tallied  yet check this out:

"My mom, aunt, and dad all voted for RP today in my hometown, My mom and aunt both work passing out ballots, and checking them off. I just looked at the politico map and it says their town has ZERO votes for Ron. Now i know that there isn't corruption on voting in that little town, so where they reported it must be. What do I do, anyone know???

So this is wrong. This is a town that had 20 people counting the ballots and I have no reason to believe that they cheated. Small town and I was born and raised there. The real numbers will come in by morning. The electronic machines in the big towns are the ones we have to worry about."

A YouTube video from Black Box Voting that you won't soon forget:


John Silvestro and his small private business, LHS Associates, has
exclusive programming contracts for ALL New Hampshire voting machines,
which combined will count about 81 percent of the vote in the primary. And
as to Super Tuesday and beyond: Silvestro also has the programming
contracts for the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont.

Silvestro IS the New Hampshire chain of custody in New England -- Or at
least, a very large component in it.

Last fall, with the help of citizens like you, Black Box Voting began
working on "Chain of Custody" projects, in which we identified some of
the areas of concern that might affect many jurisdictions at once. First
on the list for the Northeast U.S. is LHS Associates, a vendor with
inside access to every memory card, as well as to the chips containing
the "brain" of the Diebold optical scan machines.


In an unusual confluence of available video, we obtained footage of
Silvestro grappling with Harri Hursti, the master hacker who had his way
with the Diebold optical scans in Leon County, Florida in the famous
exploit that was showcased in the film Hacking Democracy.

The exact same make, model and version hacked in the Black Box Voting
project in Leon County is used throughout New Hampshire, where about 45
percent of elections administrators hand count paper ballots at the
polling place, with the remaining locations all using the Diebold version
1.94w optical scan machine. Because the voting machine locations tend
to be urban, this represents about 81 percent of the New Hampshire

The video shows Harri Hursti testifying on Sept. 19 before the New
Hampshire legislature, attempting to explain significant vulnerabilities
requiring urgent mitigations; throughout his testimony, Silvestro
inserted his own comments, opinions, misstatements and speculations.


One area of disagreement between Hursti and Silvestro was the amount of
expertise needed to exploit the Diebold 1.94w optical scan system.
Silvestro claimed (in a strange contortion of reasoning) that he doesn't
hire very skilled programmers, implying that this makes New Hampshire
elections more secure.

Hursti pointed out that hiring programmers with a lack of knowledge is
generally not considered a security feature, and also that an average
high schooler can learn to exploit the system in two days to two weeks.


Black Box Voting purchased a Diebold optical scan with 1.94w firmware,
and chose a computer repair shop out of the phone book, took it in,
grabbed the first available technician. It took him less than 10 minutes
to zero in on the memory card as a point of critical vulnerability --
and oh my, did he point out some other intersting things!


Silvestro tries to claim that the security problems have been fixed in
newer editions. Whether or not they have been, it's a moot point in New
Hampshire where the upgrade is not made unless the Ballot Law
Commission meets, and they have not met for ages.

Silvestro then points to extraordinary measures taken by other states
to enact special procedural safeguards, but of course none of those were
implemented in New Hampshire either, because the Ballot Law Commission
has not bothered to meet since March 2006.


Not only that, they have turned all the programming over to a sole
source private company, taking vote counting for 81 percent of New
Hampshire citizens out of the public domain.

LHS is not subject to public records requirements, as the government
is, at least, not in New Hampshire. The control over memory card contents
is absolute; when cards malfunction or get lost, LHS brings the


Since LHS maintains the machines, repairs the machines, and replaces
the machines -- often on Election Day -- when they malfunction, they have
intimate access to the chips, sockets, ports, communications devices
and other electronic components.

Silvestro stated that the chip has "read only memory" and cannot be
reprogrammed without frying it under ultraviolet light overnight.

Hursti never had a chance to examine the hardware, nor have most of the
recent university studies had access. But our friendly neighborhood
computer repair guy differed with Silvestro on the point of plug & play
reprogramming of the guts of the machine.

After I push the button to send this message out to the media and the
citizenry, I'll work on getting a short YouTube video of the Accuvote
checkup by our local computer repairman. And before you say, "But wait!
He's not a world class expert!" -- That's just the point.

Our local computer repairman may hit or miss on some of his analyses.
You'll all be able to try your hand at second guessing him as soon as
the next video is up. But if he hits even one of his ideas for how to
exploit the machine to steal votes, that's all it takes. From someone who
is not, certainly, a world class hacker or even a hacker at all.

I'll post the link to that in a follow up here: ,
and invite you techs to weigh in.

The We the People Foundation has filed this lawsuit in all 50 states to push for verifiable paper ballots in all elections
http://www.wethepeoplefoundati.....-11-06.htm They deserve everyone’s support. We must immediately challenge this rigged Primary and demand a recount. If Ron Paul’s campaign staff doesn’t do it, as far as I’m concerned that would be indicative of plants on the staff.

How could that be? Melinda Pillsbury has exposed the Cato Institute, a Libertarian Think Tank in Washington DC as being controlled by the Neocons- see her excellent article "The Enemy Within- Cato's Covert Agenda" at

Jim Condit of had poll watchers in at least some of the precincts. I talked with him yesterday, and will be in touch with him about anything they might have found out. If there were any discrepancies in those precincts that used paper ballots, he would have found them out. Also, if the result from the precincts counted via paper ballots differed noticably from those where the vote was counted by LHS associates using hackable Diebold Machines, that would also raise a red flag. Stay tuned folks, and while this gets sorted lets keep pushing full tilt for Dr. Paul. We have no choice at this point, he either gets elected, or we get the iron boot of tyranny stomping in our faces forever.

WHAT TO DO: Call Ron Paul's campaign office at 703-248-9115  and demand that they officially demand a RECOUNT!! The Supreme Court has ruled that a constitutional election entails two things 1) That we have the right to cast a vote, and 2) We have the right to have that vote COUNTED accurately

It is very evident from the information cited in this message that LHS Associates just rigged the New Hampshire primary. Every American who has contributed to the Ron Paul campaign has just been ROBBED along with the registered voters of New Hampshire including those in Sutton whose votes were not counted! Email this whole alert to Ron Paul via this contact form on their website
