In the US shooting them is a very real possibility and becoming very close to a reality. No matter which way the election turns out there are going to be a whole bunch of pissed off people. The governor of Florida is already trying to enhance that state's stand your ground laws to shooting looters and running over people who block roadways.

Ammo in popular calibers is hard to find and all prices have sky-rocketed. Ammo for my old .375 H&H has gone from $40.00-$50.00 for a box of 20 to $75.00-$85.00 per box. That despite ammo mfg working three shift days and (thanks to Trump) no wars being waged now. People are truly fed up with the antics of auntifa and BLM. It's not hard to imagine somebody dumping a few mags into a crowd of rioters. That could escalate into a tit-for-tat exchange that could rapidly lead to some serious bloodshed. Here's hoping that cooler heads prevail. As you say, we shall see.

US cyber-security expert exposes flaws
in Pennsylvania e-Voting systems


Monday 16th Nov 2020 | by James Tweedie

Systems analyst and penetration tester Ron Watkins said voting machines were just Windows 10 PCs which users could easily access and change voting data, which was transferred to county officials on simple USB flash drives. And he said the apparent theft of encryption keys in Philadelphia could invalidate the election result there.

A US cyber-security expert has exposed gaping security flaws in Pennsylvania's electronic voting system.
In a boost to President Donald Trump's ongoing challenge to election results in several states, Large Systems Technical Analyst Ron Watkins revealed that electronically-tallied votes and possibly security keys are carried on simple USB flash drives - several of which were stolen over a month before the November 3 election.

He told One America News' Chanel Rion he had pored through the Dominion Voting Systems technical manual and public request documents from Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar "with the mindset of a penetration tester, of which I am," and was "trying to figure out which parts of the system could be abused by end users."

He identified the physical security of the device and administrative access as key vulnerabilities of the system. Another was that voting totals are transferred from tabulation machines to senior election officials on USB flash drives - which he believed were easy to tamper with.
"You have the issue of the person who is inside the tabulation machine, which is just a normal Windows 10 computer, are they manipulating the votes before they go to the flash drive?"
Then you have the next issue, which is now the votes are on the flash drive, how does that flash drive get to the county commissioner or whoever is assigned to accept the flash drive? Is the same flash drive being sent over?"
Watkins also pointed out that county-level officials could tamper with the results before reporting them to the state level.

A reported 'glitch' in Dominion voting machines in Michigan's rural Antrim county transferred 6,000 votes cast for Trump to Democratic candidate Joe Biden before it was spotted. Trump eventually won by some 2,500 votes in that county. Dominion has denied its machines were the cause of the issue, claiming it was a "user error" - effectively admitting an official could alter the result.

Another issue raised by Watkins was the digital cryptographic keys to access data on the voting machines, which could be contactless RFID fobs or USB devices.
"If you lose this physical key, you lose absolute security of the entire precinct. For example, if Philadelphia was storing these keys in a warehouse, and they were robbed, and the only thing stolen were these keys and a laptop, then you should consider their entire election illegitimate because they have lost the physical security of the system, which is the most important part of information security."
Watkins was referring to an actual incident confirmed by the Philadelphia City Commissioner’s office on September 30, where a staff laptop and encrypted flash drives were taken from an election machine warehouse in the East Falls district. Police were investigating.

The commissioner's office said the laptop's user account was disabled after the theft was discovered and that officials were “rechecking all of the seals on the already tested machines,” adding: “We are confident that this incident will not in any way compromise the integrity of the election.”

Election Systems & Software, the manufacturer of the machines stored at the warehouse, insisted that the flash drives “contain multiple levels of security” and that the laptop was “not used to program the election or interact with USBs used in elections.”

But Philadelphia was the city where more than 600,000 postal ballots, which Republican Party election observers said they were prevented from scrutinising, turned an overwhelming lead for Trump in Pennsylvania to a narrow win for Biden.

U.S. Election - Night of Broken Glass?

Trump lawyer contesting election result said 'litigation will not work'
Image
Pennsylvania state capitol building in Harrisburg on 7 November.

Martin Pengelly in New York wrotes in "the Guardian":

A lawyer fighting for Donald Trump in the US president’s attempt to overturn defeat by Joe Biden said shortly after election day that “no bombshells” would derail the Democrat’s victory, and “the litigation will not work”.


Trump has not conceded to Mr Biden, despite losing the electoral college 306-232 and trailing by 5.5m ballots in the popular vote. While the president seeks redress in the courts in multiple states, the lack of a concession is delaying transition work, with detrimental effects for national security and the fight against Covid-19.

Marc Scaringi, 51 and from Harrisburg, was retained by the Trump campaign on Monday, to replace attorneys who dropped out of the attempt to overturn the result in Pennsylvania, where Biden won by about 70,000 votes.

Scaringi has previously run for a Republican Senate nomination and volunteered for the Trump campaign. On election day, he posted to Twitter a picture of people watching results in Washington DC, with the comment: “Biden’s people ready for a coup if he loses.”

He also has his own conservative talkshow on iHeartRadio. Broadcasting on 7 November, four days after election day and shortly after Pennsylvania put Biden over the top, he said: “In my opinion, there really are no bombshells that are about to drop that will derail a Biden presidency, including these lawsuits.

“I’ve been saying since Wednesday morning that Biden would win.”

He also said that though some Trump legal challenges “had merit … at the end of the day, in my view, the litigation will not work. It will not reverse this election.”

On Saturday 14 November, Scaringi said it was “up to the Trump lawyers to get some good results in these lawsuits to try to flip the vote count”.

On Monday, he was retained in that effort. Jenna Ellis, a legal adviser to Trump, said the move to retain local counsel was “consistent with routine managing of complex litigation”.

The judge in the Pennsylvania case, however, denied Scaringi’s request for a delay to a hearing set for Tuesday afternoon, at which the state will attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed.

What happens now; Projected Timeline
Many people outside the US are not sure of the timeline of events as far as the election goes; the following is what should happen if there is no legal upheaval. (Mr Trumps Pipe Dream :) )
MIT Technology: by Patrick Howell O'Neill archive page
November 17, 2020

The sitting president is carrying on an unprecedented attack on the results. Mr Trump’s legal challenges and recount requests could theoretically alter the certification timeline, but courts have been throwing out the campaign’s efforts so far because of a lack of evidence.

Here’s what happens next in the states that have played a key role in the presidential election:
  • Georgia’s certification deadline is November 20.
  • Pennsylvania counties must submit certification by November 23.
  • Michigan’s certification deadline is November 23.
  • Nevada’s certification deadline is November 24.
  • Arizona’s certification deadline is November 30.
  • Wisconsin’s certification deadline is December 1.
On December 14, the Electoral College casts its votes and then the states are done. The election then finally moves into federal hands: two months after Election Day, Congress formally elects the next president on January 6 when it counts electoral votes in a joint session.

The new President is inaugurated on Wednesday, 20 January, which should be the Inauguration of Joe Biden 2021; from this point he should be called "Mr. President". ;)

Hunt, you have your head up your ass so far that you need a sight glass in your belly-button just to see where you're going.

I am just reporting the news as it comes up. If I am correct, (I usually am.. ask Nessie :mrgreen: ) I would like an Anchorage Distillery's Glacier Melt Vodka. If in the odd circumstance I am wrong your choice of Ambrosia can be negotiated. ;)

Claiming that there was no fraud involved in the US election is about the same as Nessie claiming that the magic Jew barbeque was functional.

That has to be proved with evidence; at the moment the grounds of this claim appear to be baseless. Can't wait for my prezzie. I do not think 2.2% of the population can be blamed for this outcome.

Fraud has been proven. Whether the politicized courts accept such proof remains to be seen. Barret is unproven in SCOTUS cases but there seems to be little doubt that it will take a SCOTUS ruling to settle the contentions.

You do realize that the venal and senile pedophile Joe Biden is just a place holder until he's declared incompetent and Kamel-toe the ho is sworn in as president of the US? As much as anyone hates Trump, that can't be considered a desirable outcome for the US or the world for that matter.

Enjoy.

BTW, do you really think that it's just a cohencidence that Dominion essentially shares office space with Soros?
