America’s Election Circus
A Billion-Dollar Game!
‘The Strip & Flip Selection of 2016’

Could the 2016 Election
Be Stolen With Help from
Electronic Voting Machines?

(M. Javed Naseem)

The might is right! People are being fooled in the name of democracy, human rights, freedom of speech, liberty, freedom of choice, etc. They say: Your vote counts! Does it? If it did, it has never been counted in my favor, to my benefit or to make a change I wanted.

Election is a stunt, a drama, a circus, a fake exercise of pre-selection, a billion-dollar game. And only the vested-interest groups benefit from it. They are the people who control the whole affair from the beginning to the end. They decide, as per their needs and requirements, who should be the president to serve them as a ‘rubber stamp’. In the whole sham process of elections they use modern technology and media to support and facilitate their mission. They make it look as real as possible.

America, the staunch champion of democracy, people’s rights and freedom of speech, has a dual-core election system. There is a parallel system of election (or selection) running under the disguise of “popular vote”. They claim that people’s vote (popular vote) counts but it’s a drama. Popular vote don’t count. They are fooling people. Here’s how it works:

Generally people participate in the drama of voting; they go to the polling booths in millions and cast their votes. Each state (out of 50 states) has an allotted number of ‘delegates’. In theory, if a candidate wins a popular vote in a state, he wins the state and the state delegates vote for him. But these delegates are not legally bound to vote for the winning candidate. They can vote against him. And that’s exactly what happened in 2000 when George Bush lost the popular vote in Florida but the delegates still voted for him and eventually he won the presidential election. Poor Al Gore, who won the popular vote in Florida (as a matter of fact in the entire country) was declared the ‘loser’ because the delegates did not vote for him. In principle, they should have. That’s how the mafia robbed him of presidency!

The million-dollar question is: If people elect their candidate (president) why do they need the delegates? They sell you out. Let the people decide who they want as President on the basis of popular vote. No need of delegates! The delegates form a parallel election system to give the ‘controllers’ (the vested-interests mafia) the power to pull the lever whenever they don’t want a particular candidate to win.

Corruption in American election system is deep-rooted. Many people are concerned about official efforts to corrupt the election process or erect barriers to participation. For example, election officials could manipulate registration databases to remove the names of people likely to vote in a certain way so that these people are unable to cast regular ballots when they arrive at polling places. Corruption of this kind was widely alleged to have taken place in Florida and other states during the 2000 election.

“The only good thing we can say about
George W. Bush is the American people
never actually elected him president (in
2000). And we’re looking now at 2016, at
an election that will be very easily flipped,
in those six key swing states and elsewhere.”
-- Harvey Wasserman


Deliberate disfranchisement of voters may also occur because of other kinds of official misconduct: turning away voters already in line when polls close; intimidating or misinforming voters when they arrive at the polls; producing misleading or poorly designed ballots; failing to provide bilingual voting materials, as required by law; failing to upgrade or repair voting systems in specific election districts; and by other means.

Overall, the disfranchisement of voters through antiquated voting systems, errors, mismanagement of registration bases, and intimidation or harassment is a far bigger problem today than traditional forms of election fraud. The problems in Florida in 2000, which determined the outcome of a presidential election, are dramatic evidence of this point.

The outcome of the 2000 U.S. Presidential election was not known for more than a month after balloting, because of the extended process of counting and then recounting of Florida ballots. The drama in Florida uniquely dragged out for several weeks before eventually settling the election for the entire nation.
The election was held in early November but in late October, one poll found that Al Gore was leading George Bush 46-42 (margin: 4) among likely voters, but the poll had a margin of error of four percentage points. Florida had been considered fertile territory for Republicans. It was governed by Jeb Bush, George W. Bush's brother.
After an intense recount process and the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, George Bush was officially declared the winner by a margin of only 537 votes out of almost 6 million cast. The process was extremely divisive, and led to calls for electoral reforms. As a result, the electronic voting machines were introduced for future elections.
“You cannot verify an electronic voting
machine. They are privately owned by
private corporations, and the proprietary
software prevents the public from getting
access to the actual vote count.”
-- Harvey Wasserman


Ironically, it has been proved today that these electronic machines make the voter fraud much easier, safer, simpler but harder to detect (leave no traces to be verified). An IT-expert from the supplier/contractor of these machines can manipulate and pre-program the results.

A Documentary Record of Theft
And Fraud in The 2004 Election:

Harvey Wasserman of Columbus, Ohio, has been a vocal critic of electronic voting machines. He co-wrote the book, "What Happened in Ohio: A Documentary Record of Theft and Fraud in the 2004 Election." His upcoming book is titled "The Strip & Flip Selection of 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft."
Here are excerpts from his interview:

Host Amy Goodman: Your concern over the years that electronic voting could be used to steal elections. Are you still concerned about this?
Harvey Wasserman: Well, electronic voting was used to steal the presidential election right here in Ohio in 2004. John Kerry was the rightful winner in 2004 over George W. Bush. The secretary of state at the time, J. Kenneth Blackwell, and the governor, Robert Taft, used their power of electronic vote count to flip the vote to George W. Bush from John Kerry.
AMY: How do you know this?
HARVEY: We watched it—I grew up here, Amy. We watched it, totally, right up close and personal. We did the accounting. I work with a political scientist named Bob Fitrakis. We’re about to come out with another book, The Strip & Flip of the 2016 Selection. They are stripping the voter rolls—and Greg Palast, the great investigative reporter, is doing great on this—removing African Americans, Hispanics, people who might incline to vote progressive, and they—so that—in 2004, they stripped 300,000 people from the voter rolls here in the urban areas. Bush only won by less than 120 [thousand].
And this year, about 80 percent of the vote nationally will be cast on electronic voting machines. There is no verifiability. In six key swing states—Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Arizona—you have Republican governors and Republican secretaries of state, and no method of verifying the electronic vote count. At midnight or whenever it is on election night, those two guys can go in there with an IT person and flip the outcome of an electronically counted vote within about 60 seconds. So all this millions and millions of dollars, people out campaigning and so on, can be negated by an electronic vote flip late at night on election night, and there is no way to verify what’s happened.

AMY: They didn’t do this with President Obama in 2008.
HARVEY: They did. He had too many votes; he was too far out. They couldn’t—it would have taken them too many, to flip too many states. [inaudible] believe Obama won by well over 10 million votes. The last—the final vote count was in—official, was in 7 or 8 million.
AMY: But what gives you this idea?
HARVEY: Because we’ve seen it happen. When you compare exit polls, which are generally accurate to within 1 percent, with the electronic outcome, there are huge variations. And we have documented many dozens of different things that they have done over the years to flip electronic votes.
AMY: How does e-voting, electronic voting, work? And who controls the controls on it?
HARVEY: Well, that’s the key. The electronic voting machines are owned by private corporations, which are Republican in orientation, generally. And the courts have ruled that the source code on these electronic voting machines is proprietary. So, even the governments that buy or lease these machines have no access to a final verification process. Even Ronald Reagan said, "Trust, but verify." And we know that the vote count was flipped in 2004. We know it was flipped in Volusia County in 2000.
AMY: Where is Volusia County?
HARVEY: In Florida, when Al Gore basically was the rightful winner, and George W. Bush won the election. I mean, the only great—
AMY: And they were electronic voting machines?
HARVEY: In Volusia County, they were, yes. In the southern part of Florida, they used butterfly ballots, as you’ll recall. The only good thing we can say about George W. Bush is the American people never actually elected him president. And we’re looking now at 2016, at an election that will be very easily flipped, in those six key swing states and elsewhere.
AMY: What do you think is the answer?
HARVEY: We have to have universal, hand-counted paper ballots. And Bernie Sanders has endorsed that. We have to have automatic voter registration, where people can monitor the registration rolls, because people are being stripped from the registration rolls, mostly, of course, African-American and Hispanic. And so we’re going through this huge charade here of a national campaign, primaries and then a general election, where hundreds of millions of dollars will be spent, and on election night, in 60 seconds, the actual outcome can be flipped electronically in key swing states with no verification whatsoever.

AMY: How do you think they can be protected, people can be sure that their vote is counted, that they cast, even using electronic voting machines?
HARVEY: They can’t be. You cannot verify an electronic voting machine. They are privately owned by private corporations, and the proprietary software prevents the public from getting access to the actual vote count.
AMY: Why do you think just Republicans would do it?
HARVEY: Oh, no, Democrats definitely do it. I have—we have strong questions about Rahm Emanuel being re-elected in Chicago, for example. We have no doubt that Scott Walker stole his re-election in Wisconsin.
AMY: Based on what?
HARVEY: Based on the miraculous discovery of several thousand votes in a so-called ‘glitched’ computer voting machine that gave him a victory where it was clearly a defeat. You know, this is stuff that’s been going on a long time. These methods were perfected more or less overseas by the CIA and other covert and overt operations. They came back. It started in 1988 with George H.W. Bush using electronic voting machines in New Hampshire to beat Bob Dole in the 1988 primary. And we have seen since then the use of electronic voting machines all across the country to flip elections after they have stripped the voter rolls. And, you know—

AMY: When you say "stripping the voter rolls," you mean?
HARVEY: Yes, well, Greg Palast has reported on this. In Florida 2000, 90,000 mostly black and Hispanic voters were stripped out of the voter rolls before the election, in a vote count that was won by 600 votes. And in Ohio 2004, 300,000 voters in primarily urban areas were stripped off the voter rolls. People showed up to vote in the same precinct—as did I, by the way—they were—I was denied my absentee ballot, and we had a federal lawsuit on this, which we won and went nowhere after that.

It’s a nightmare. And it’s not democracy. I mean, Bernie Sanders has shown that the election—that the campaign finance is rigged, that the economy is rigged. Why wouldn’t they take the very small next step to rig the electronic voting machines?

Electronic voting machines actually make it easier to manipulate results. It’s shocking!
This is the hack that proved America's elections can be stolen using a few lines of computer code. The DVD is available at
