Our votes will be counted by a central server in Spain!

FOTM’s beloved fellow, Terry, sent me this alarming video of talk radio host Michael Savage.

Savage’s style is over-the-top, but his claims are true.
The counting of our votes this November has been outsourced to a foreign company — a central server, SCYTL, in Spain — instead of being counted at the local precinct level, over which voters can keep an eye.
Blogger NiceDeb alerts us that news of this outsourcing was reported on the Market Watch website back in January, but received scant attention in the MSM:

SCYTL is the global leader in online voting solutions with a presence in over twenty countries

– SOE Software is the leading software company for election management solutions in the United States

– The combination of the two companies creates the industry leader in election software with a strong market presence worldwide

SCYTL, the global leader in secure electronic voting technologies, announced today the acquisition of 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States. The integration of these two software companies creates the industry leader in the election software market with a full range of solutions covering from Internet voting to election night reporting and online pollworker training, and a strong market presence worldwide.

SCYTL is currently the worldwide leader in the Internet voting space and the acquisition of SOE Software, with its Clarity election management software suite, significantly expands SCYTL’s product portfolio beyond electronic voting. Furthermore, SOE Software’s strong US presence with 900 jurisdictions as customers in 26 states, including 14 state-wide customers, complements very effectively SCYTL’s customer base in the United States and internationally with customers in over 20 different countries across 5 continents, including France, Spain, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, India and Australia.

To make matters worse, SCYTL is owned by George Soros!

Ask your senator and representative by what authority the outsourcing of vote-counting has been engineered.

Demand an answer!!!!

    Voting is for cowards and folks, anyway.

    Forgive the typo (or blame the auto-correct) … The word is fools, not folks. Voting is for cowards and fools.

     
  3. This smells of George Soros. Does he own the company in Spain?
    And to Richard Greene: Why do you bother with such a stupid comment?Don’t waste my time unless you have something worthwhile to contribute. If you are a demoncrat please take your own advise and do not vote and please do not procreate either.

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep arguing over what’s for dinner. It appeals to those who prefer abdication over action.
    While the complainers rage over the results of their darling system, they also find those results somehow binding. Free individuals are not bound by the “choices” of others, no matter how short-sighted those choices may be.
    Democracy always leads to tyranny, and the majority is usually misguided to begin with. As conservative as you may pretend to be, you’re still a collectivist and a slave if you serve democracy. The majority is always easier to manage and enslave than a group of free individuals.
    The natives of the North American never instituted this evil form of social organization because they knew, like Jesus Christ and the full 100% of all religious leaders everywhere at all times knew, that majority has nothing whatsoever to do with morality.
    So SAM, which are you: a fool, or a coward?

    • In the blink of an eye, you’ve gone from being Richard Greene, to being prodigalsun (comments deleted by me), to now Nancy. That’s quite a quickie sex change operation.
      I remember you by your “real” name Nancy Oakes, who lives in that leftwing sinkhole called Oakland, CA. You were banned months ago, so you tried to get back on here as “Richard Greene” using a mobile IP address.
      By whatever alias, you’re banned — for being insulting to the hosts and commenters, for preaching your brand of do-nothing Anarchism (which is an even more radical brand of communism than Karl Marx’s), and for being plain obnoxious. You are not welcome on FOTM — a private blog by Conservatives, for Conservatives.

       
  6. Things are looking gloomier and gloomier… I think the whole thing is way much bigger than we can imagine!!!

     
  7. This disturbs me greatly. I have felt for a long time now that Obama would be re-elected. I know of people who still think he’s the greatest thing! Aren’t people even paying attention? But let’s not forget Jesus words, Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled”. Everything will be alright eventually!

    I wonder if they placed the order for all those rounds of ammo the same day they outsourced the vote counting to an overseas company?

     
  9. I am an election inspector in Wisconsin. This post really doesn’t tell the whole truth. There is no National system to count votes. Each State Election Board handles all votes for that particular state. Nothing is done at the national level. This post makes it sound like there is some National database of votes which could not be further from the truth.

     
    • although I conceed a point to you Norm…I’m still wondering about
      Occupy Madison and Recall Scott Walker (scam) and how effective
      rules are against those who don’t play by them….
      throw in the collusion of the fouth estate and a
      representative republic doesn’t stand a chance

       
  10. we pray without ceasing…we hope that this cup will pass from us,
    and we resist evil actively by proclaiming the truth.
    Don’t doubt the power of prayer,Terry…and don’t grow weary
    of fighting what is a spiritual battle…we win 🙂

     
  11. Your Online Vote CAN Be CHANGED…many times!!!
    I’ve been doing some research on the Director of US operations, recently hired by SCYTL in 2011. His name is Paul Stenbjorn who was previously the Executive Director of the DC Board of Elections and Ethics. He conducted an interview online with Etopia news December 29th 2011 in which he admitted that once a voter had cast their vote online that their vote COULD BE CHANGED, MANY TIMES. View the attachment and see for yourself at around the 8:30 mark in the video. Wake up America!!!

    I may be a littke slow of understanding but can someone please tell me where our votes will be counted? I asked in a fb pollitical discussion group i’m in and was accused of spreading wild rumors and trolling. Had to adk someone what trolling was, i never heard the term outside of fishing.

     
    • Rose, I know what you mean. This story upset me no end and I blabbered all over about it; I found some very compelling videos on it. But then I went to Snopes and they said FALSE so I feel like a boob. But I have noticed Snopes tends to lean to the left, so I would like confirmation. They say the company has nothing to do with counting the votes, just reporting results; and that’s where they lose me. I guess I’m stupid because I don’t understand why you need a multimillion dollar company to “report the results” (without counting?). Smart people, help me??!!

       
      • Rose and Moxie:
        I’ll look into this. I’m still trying to recover from my over-a-week-long flu. So it may take a while. But I will get back to you on this!

         
  13. Before you get too uptight about this, check your own state to see where votes are actually counted. Here in Indiana each precinct counts the votes cast in that particular precinct. Those totals are then delivered to the county courthouse. After all of the precincts in the county have reported, the county total is then reported to the state. If you think about it, that’s a lot of people to be fooling in order to get messed up results.
    Also, very few states allow online voting. Voting is usually done at the polling place, or through the mail.
    If you are concerned, contact your secretary of state (they are the ones in charge of elections) and ask how the votes are tabulated and what software is used. Also, check to see if that person is a republican or democrat.

     
  14. Where was the outrage when the president of Diebold promised he was “committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.” Or when they utilized software that appeared to be either so amateurishly and insecurely written that it appeared to have been written for the sole purpose of enabling vote fraud?

     
  15. Nothing like having BO’s mentor George Soros behind counting the vote. Does anyone really believe this will be a FAIR COUNT??? I sure don’t. BO has done nothing but LIE the past four years, is lying now and once this election is over and they LIE and declare BO winner WE ARE SO SCREWED. WAKE UP PEOPLE…
    I have a long list what BO has done to our country but I’ll make it easy and tell you what he has done right
    1. NADA, ZILCH, NOTHING

     
  16. FROM THE BLAZE:Fact Check: Does George Soros Own an Overseas Company That Will Count U.S. Votes?
    Posted on September 13, 2012 at 4:21pm by Becket Adams
    Does a major Obama donor own an overseas company that will control the U.S.’s entire vote-counting system? The simple answer: No. But let’s expand on this because, obviously, it would be highly disturbing (to say the very least) if it were true.
    The claim goes something like this [as noted by Snopes]:
    The Obama administration has sold the processing rights of our votes in the general election to a company from Spain (SCYTL) It will no longer be possible to track and verify our votes. The CEO of the company donated the maximum amount to Obamas’ 2008 campaign.
    And, according to similar emails, Scytl has strong ties to billionaire currency speculator, liberal activist, and Democrat donor George Soros (looks legit, right?):
    �GEORGE SOROS, BARACK OBAMA‘S NUMBER ONE SUPPORTER AND SOURCE OF THE PRESIDENT’S LARGEST CORPORATE DONATIONS, WILL CONTROL YOUR VOTES IN THE UP COMING PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION � Follow the bouncing ball on the criminal corruption ruse of your USA votes.
    1.) The Obama Government has outsourced the counting of votes for the 2012 election. But since WHEN does the nation need to outsource a task as uncomplicated and straightforward as vote-counting?
    2.) Obama outsourced the counting to a Tampa Florida company, named SOE, that had previously been used to administer the vote counting process for over 500 American jurisdictions.
    3.) But recently, SOE software has now been sold to a company named SCYTL, owned by George Soros, headquartered in Spain.
    4.) The votes will go to SCYTL, the question becomes as to WHY Must local votes for each precinct will be downloaded to SCYTL�s main server � leaving no TRACEABLE record of how many, and what votes were scored! Which of course means that said votes will be MERGED; and any discrepancies at lower levels will be IMPOSSIBLE to track.
    5.) But wait, it gets murkier: SCYTL is shadow owned by Pere Valles, a former CEO of Global Net; who just HAPPENS to have been a maximum level contributor to the Obama Campaign in 2008. Not surprisingly, Valles is also has contacts with Media Matters, a communication consortium owned by: George Soros.
    6.) Now the bad news: according to the �Black Box� voting site, this centralizes one �middleman� access point for over 525 voting jurisdictions: (AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. � and growing).�
    Now before you batten down the hatches and start freaking out, let’s dig a little deeper. Snopes and conservative authoress Michelle Malkin make quick work of the rumor and thoroughly debunks this mess. From Snopes:
    The Obama administration could not possibly have “sold the processing rights of our votes in the general election” to Scytl, as the federal government does not run elections: individual states do. It’s up to each state to determine on its own how to conduct its elections and what voting systems to use.
    Moreover, it’s highly unlikely any states will be choosing to use systems like Scytl’s to implement online voting on anything more than a very limited basis in the 2012 general election. Scytl’s current list of customers includes only four U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, all of whom have so far limited their use of Scytl systems to providing a means for overseas (i.e., military and absentee) voters to cast their ballots remotely.
    The Snopes analysis goes on to cite an article from Discovery News which notes that even on the rare occasion when online voting was used, it failed to work in some cases and those systems will not be revisited in 2012. The analysis also adds:
    (SOE software does have a more expansive roster of U.S. customers, but their products are aimed at providing ancillary services to local governments such as helping constituents communicate with government offices or displaying election results, not systems to record and tabulate votes.)
    Malkin notes that, contrary to what the emails claim, Scytl’s acquisition of SOE software does not equal a vote-counting takeover:
    While SOE boasts of a presence “with 900 jurisdictions as customers in 26 states,” there is no single contract that the federal government has entered into, or could, with Scytl to count the 2012 presidential election votes. Much of the work Scytl/SOE analysts do is number-crunching and graphics software work after local and state officials have done the vote-counting.
    Scytl does have a contract with the feds to use its technology to help overseas and military voters participate in elections. In 2009, the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act mandated that U.S. jurisdictions allow uniformed and overseas citizens to receive and track their ballots electronically. Scytl’s online ballot program was used in 14 states during the 2010 midterms.
    Okay, nothing there. What’s the next point? From Snopes:
    The security and auditability of online voting systems remains a subject of debate, which, as noted above, makes it quite improbable there will be any statewide (much less nationwide) use of systems like Scytl’s in tabulating votes for the 2012 presidential election.
    Snopes’ analysis goes on to highlight an article by Steve Wildstrom, writing in Tech.pinions, which clearly outlines the security difficulties in implementing these types of systems. And Wildstrom isn’t alone. A whole host of experts in electronic security industry agree that no type of system will be put in place in the U.S. any time soon.
    But here’s where it get really good. Snopes takes a look at Scytl’s CEO Pere Vallés and his supposed connections to the Democrat Party:
    Despite claims that Pere Vallés “donated heavily to the 2008 Obama campaign,” a search of all donors to the 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama does not turn up a contribution (of any size) from anyone with that name.
    And, of course, there’s the fact that there’s “no evidence supporting the common rumor that financier George Soros holds an ownership stake in Scytl.”
    Indeed, Scytl’s investors are Nauta Capital, Balderton Capital, and Spinnaker SCR.
    “Soros doesn’t ‘own’ any of these international venture capital firms — and as far as my research shows, he has no involvement whatsoever with any of them,” Malkin writes.
    “Moreover, Scytl’s board of directors doesn’t include anyone with Soros financial or management ties. Pressed for evidence, one Internet conspiracy nut cited an ‘invitation only event’ in Moldova that listed both the ‘Soros Foundation Moldova’ and Scytl as attendees,” she adds.
    Okay, let’s recap: We’re supposed to believe that the election is being stolen by a Sores-connected company run by a shady Democrat CEO, right? Well, aside from the fact that the company has no ties to Soros and the CEO has no record of ever contributing money to President Obama (as the emails claim), why not?
    Bottom Line: The Soros-Obama vote-counting rumor is factually inaccurate on every count and there is literally (as Vice President Joe Biden would say) nothing to back up this claim.
    We understand Soros’ influence with the Democrat Party runs extraordinarily deep. We get that. But before we start accusing people of rigging elections, we need to have at least a shred of evidence.
    “Soros has enough explicit ties to President Obama’s administration and campaign without having to embellish them,” Malkin notes.
    So, rest easy, folks.
