GOP to Sabotage Ron Paul Even Further in New Hampshire! Activist Bev Harris Speaks Out
90% Of Tonight’s Votes To Be Counted By Diebold Electronic Voting Machines
Paul supporters worry New Hampshire chicanery could cost him second place finish

90 per cent of tonight’s votes in the GOP New Hampshire primary will be counted by notoriously suspect Diebold electronic voting machines, which during the Democratic primary back in 2008 produced a result that completely defied both pre-primary and exit polls.
Despite widespread accusations of vote fraud four years ago, New Hampshire has failed to revert to good old fashioned hand-counted paper ballots for all but 10 per cent of the votes that will be cast.
Although 40% of New Hampshire towns use publicly hand-counted paper ballots to arrive at their vote tallies, these only account for 10% of the total votes cast in the state.
“The rest will be cast on hand-marked paper ballots, but tallied by the Diebold optical-scan computers,” reports The Brad Blog. “The same ones shown many times to be easily manipulated and and which sometimes just drop votes in such a way that there is no way to know whether they have been manipulated or failed unless one bothers to actually hand-count the paper ballots. The state does not hand-count those ballots in NH, unless a recount is called for. By then, as we saw in 2008, the chain of custody has been broken and it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to know if the ballots being “recounted” are the ones that were actually cast on Election Night.”
It was thanks to Diebold electronic voting machines, programmed and serviced by a company with a criminal background, that Hillary Clinton was able to pull off the biggest election shock in history by reversing a 13 point deficit to beat Barack Obama by 3 per cent.
At one stage hours before the vote, betting websites were offering odds of 250/1 on a Clinton victory, while Obama was at 1/100. Exit polls of voters on the day of the election confirmed that Obama was cruising to a landslide. And yet Clinton defied all the polls to claim a hugely suspect first place.
“It was noted that Obama was the winner of the hand-counted towns in NH, while Clinton won in the Diebold towns by an almost mirror-opposite percentage,” writes Brad Friedman.
Ron Paul supporters also noted how establishment candidate Rudy Giuliani significantly outperformed Paul on Diebold machines compared to paper ballots, a swing that cost Paul a crucial place in the pecking order of candidates in the GOP race.
Paul also found himself on the wrong end of suspected vote fraud when election officials in districts such as Sutton reported that Paul had received zero votes, despite numerous individuals immediately going public and asserting they had voted for Paul. Officials later had to admit that 31 votes for Paul in Sutton alone had not been counted due to “human error”.
Although a recount would have cost a mere $2,000, Obama wasn’t interested and Dennis Kucinich ran out of money when the cost suddenly jumped to $60,000, forcing him to abandon his push for a recount despite his partial effort revealing huge discrepancies across the state.
“New Hampshire is currently the Decepticon of transparent elections. For each transparent election procedure, they’ve built a trap door,” warns electronic vote fraud expert Bev Harris.
Indeed, the man who lied to the media when he claimed Kucinich was “satisfied” with the 2008 recount, Sec. of State William Gardener, still holds sway in New Hampshire having been in power since 1976.
“Though only Third-World dictators and small town Sheriff’s tend to serve for that long in any one office, the media doesn’t question Secretary Gardner, as he continues to be the state’s point man zealously protecting its billion-dollar industry known as the “First-in-the-Nation” primary,” notes Friedman.
Although Mitt Romney is widely expected to win by a considerable margin, should Ron Paul, who is currently polling in second place, be pushed down to third by establishment candidate and former Obama administration official Jon Huntsman, expect Paul supporters to demand a statistical break-down of Paul’s performance on Diebold machines compared to hand-counted votes.
The results will almost certainly make for interesting reading.
“New Hampshire still uses the same institutionally vulnerable Diebold electronic voting machines as in 2008,” writes Dave Trotter . “So the odds of GOP establishment chicanery are even higher than in Iowa. After all, the establishment that Ron Paul threatens remains firmly in control of the levers and dials of the pollsters and the voting machines.”
Following the Iowa caucus, Alex Jones talks with Bev Harris, an activist, author and the founder of Black Box Voting Inc., a national nonpartisan, nonprofit elections watchdog group. Her work to expose security weaknesses in electronic voting systems was featured in an HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy. Harris’ investigative journalism has appeared in both corporate and alternative media publications.
Vote Fraud at the Iowa Caucus – Eye Witness Call to Alex Jones
Does it seem strange to you that a room with 300 people in it goes pitch black for over a minute at the exact time that voters are passing their ballots to people collecting the votes in the aisles? Scott County Precinct D63 at the Radisson Hotel in Davenport, Iowa had this occur. Ron Paul got far less votes than I would have expected in a room of this size.
The Secretary of the Caucus for the Republican Party and the Precinct Captian for the Ron Paul Campaign says that the lights were off for over a minute, it was pitch black, with no light entering the room through windows or doors, and you could not see a thing. The timing of the blackout was exactly when the ballots were being collected from the seated voters by people in the aisles. The chain of custody for the ballots were compromised and NO ONE was able to observe all the ballots and NO ONE can be sure that the ballots were not tampered with or switched.
This video was made by an observer for the Ron Paul Campaign. I can’t say that the ballots were tampered with. I can say that I was there to observe that there was no vote fraud and I unable to say that there was not.
What do you think happened when the lights went out at the Caucus?
Leave a comment please.

Where Are the Missing Iowa Votes? – Fox News Insider
1:57 am ET January 4, 2012
John Roberts reports that according to an official at the Iowa GOP, they don’t know where the votes for the two remaining Iowa precincts are or when they’ll be coming in. When Roberts asked the GOP official if he could just call the people who have the results, the official said they couldn’t get in…

IT MATTERS W-H-O COUNTS THE VOTES !!!

Iowa GOP moving vote-count to ‘undisclosed location’
Comments (102) By JONATHAN MARTIN | 12/27/11 7:15 PM EST
Threats to disrupt the Iowa Republican caucuses next week have prompted state GOP officials to move the vote tabulation to an “undisclosed location,” POLITICO has learned.
The state party has not yet told the campaigns exactly where the returns will be added up, only that it will be off-site from the Iowa GOP’s Des Moines headquarters. The 2008 caucus results were tabulated at the state party offices, which sit just a few blocks from the state capitol.
Activist groups including the Occupy movement have indicated that they’ll attempt to interrupt rallies in the closing days before next Tuesday’s caucuses.
The AP reported today that Occupy is making plans to even attend some caucuses and vote “no preference,” but not disturb the voting process.
But Iowa Republicans are also bracing for other threats, sources say, including hacking.
Iowa GOP Chair Matt Strawn wouldn’t comment on the plan to move the vote-counting except to say they’re increasing security measures.
“The Iowa GOP is taking additional safeguards to ensure the Caucus results are tabulated and reported to the public in an accurate and timely manner,” Strawn said. “We are not commenting on specific security procedures.”
http://www.facebook.com/groups/watchthevote2012/ http://www.watchthevote2012.com (CRITICAL READ DESCRIPTION!!!) Hear Ron Paul on this short video ask us to help Watch the Vote — and then volunteer to help Watch the Iowa Caucus vote at our facebook page.
There we can help YOU help us watch the vote as Ron Paul asked us all to do — Watch the Vote in the Iowa Caucus 2012 for Ron Paul and Everybody Else!
Folks, please focus on doing 1 (or 2) of these 3 actions: 1) Spread the word to watch this video and read the description below the video – anyway you can; 2) volunteer to be a “Watch the Vote” County Leader on our Facebook Page (see above in this description); OR – 3) volunteer to be a Vote Monitor in Iowa on Caucus night if you are an Iowan – or can drive into Iowa for the Caucus. – See Job description for both tasks at top of watchthevote2012.com – or in document section at top of our facebook page.
The R3volution needs you now! We need at least 1 activist for each precinct (1784 total) at every caucus site on January 3, 2012, to document and eye-witness the results. These can be Iowans who are voting at a local caucus, OR out-of-staters who can drive into Iowa that night and witness the results as a Reporter for WatchTheVote2012.com (you have the same rights as a New York Times Reporter to observe a public caucus).
Ideally you need is a camera, cell phone camera, or video camera and to hang out at your precinct for approximately 30 min to one hour after the caucus is over. — As the final count is announced take a clear high resolution photo of the results, IF YOU CAN. — (If no camera, eye-witness the results, write them down, and send the results as explained below.)
Then send the results you witness to these places:
1. post it on our “WatchTheVote2012” Facebook page
2. Contact Your assigned “Watch The Vote 2012” county leader (find that on WatchTheVote2012.com under the videos) — hopefully you will have made contact with your assigned County Leader BEFORE the night of the Caucus, — AND
3. send the results and a picture of the tally sheet if you have one — to email@example.com as a back up.
Here’s the form in which the results must be posted:
with your exact caucus location which includes:
precinct name AND physical address where your caucus is meeting — which can be found here:
(example for how to identify your precinct:)
South Central Calhoun Middle School
Precinct Name: Butler Williams
Precinct Code: BUWM (not absolutely necessary)
1000 W. Tonawanda Avenue
Rockwell City, IA 50579
Then, again, post a picture of the tally sheet (if you have one) on our Facebook page in the photo section with the complete description
http://www.facebook.com/groups/watchthevote2012/ — and post a comment with the results you witnessed at your precinct, as well as what caucus you were at (example above) in the comments at our Facebook Page.
— Again, if you don’t have a camera, — at least upload the results in written form that you eye-witnessed, and identify at least by email who you are. WE MAY NEED AFFIDAVITS AT SOME POINT, if they try to cheat. The reason for the duplication to firstname.lastname@example.org – That way, if anyone messes with our faceback page — we have “backed-up” your efforts by also recording it at email@example.com / which will post on WatchTheVote2012.com — and also you are “backing up” your efforts by also contacting your “WatchTheVote2012” County Leader, as listed at the link on WatchtheVote2012.com below the videos.
We have all worked too hard to get this far and be in clear striking distance to get Ron Paul elected and watch all our efforts go up in smoke if WE THE PEOPLE do not keep them honest.
Do not let ANYONE and I do not care who it is tell you you cannot do this. And ABSOLUTELY DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE TAKE THE BALLOTS INTO A BACK ROOM TO DO THE COUNT.
No Voting Machines.

“…as equally unquestionable that the right to
have one’s vote counted is as open to protection

“Almost a century ago, in Yick Wo v. Hopkins,
