Those legacy media “fact-checkers” have said the 2020 presidential election essentially was without flaw. Leftists agree, charging that anyone who disagrees is a conspiracy theorist.
They argue that millions and millions of Americans who hadn’t voted in previous election saw candidate Joe Biden hunkering down in his home amid COVID-19 restrictions and were enthralled by his vision and ideas.
But the facts are that Mark Zuckerberg of the company formerly known as Facebook, now Meta, handed out some $420 million to mostly leftist elections officials to recruit voters from Democratic districts.
Then there were those state laws various officials illegally changed in order to accommodate mail-in ballots, which favored Democrats.
And legacy and social media deliberately suppressed accurate – and very damaging – reporting about Biden, his son Hunter, and their various business and international agendas.
And now, a report from Just the News reveals that Iranians have been indicted for hacking into a state voter database.
The report from John Solomon pointed out that the Homeland Security cyber-security chief after the election was dismissed by President Donald Trump, but then went on national TV to insist the election was fully secure.
“There was no indication or evidence that there was any sort of hacking or compromise of election systems on, before or after November 3,” Chris Krebs claimed on “60 Minutes.”
Only now an indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors in New York charges that two Iranian hackers broke into a state computer election system and stole voter registration data.
They then, allegedly, used it in a cyber-intimidation campaign that targeted GOP members of Congress, Trump campaign officials and others.
The report notes U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said the defendants “were part of a coordinated conspiracy in which Iranian hackers sought to undermine faith and confidence in the U.S. presidential election.”
The report charged that the “political establishment narrative of an immaculate election keeps eroding with each belated disclosure of hiccups, illegal instructions and forbidden tactics, and now a foreign interference plot that penetrated one state’s voter database.”
Karen Fann, the president of the Arizona Senate which conducted a review of that state’s voting that found 50,000 suspicious ballots, said, “I think one of the biggest takeaways, the bottom line is, is that if you don’t watch over your own elections, people start breaking the rules, they start breaking the laws, they start getting sloppy. … And when that happens, it’s really hard to determine really what the election results are, if we don’t follow our rules.”
The report cites Wisconsin and Michigan, where “schemes have been uncovered that victimized cognitively impaired nursing home residents, whose ballots were stolen and used by others.”
In Wisconsin, too, the state Supreme Court ruled election officials wrongly allowed tens of thousands of voters to skip ID requirements and file absentee ballots.
And there are those 50,000 questionable ballots in Arizona.
There have been others charges about ballot mismanagement in several other states, including Georgia, as well. In that state, the problems rose to the level that state officials have begun the process of taking a county’s election management receivership, removing local control for 2022.
The point is that in that handful of swing states, Biden won by very narrow margins after the suspect actions were implemented.
Two different analysts have concluded that Zuckerberg’s spending essentially “bought” the election for Biden, and the media concealment of those reports about the Bidens withheld information from enough voters that changed the outcome.
Just the News said, “Thursday’s federal indictment charged Seyyed Mohammad Hosein Musa Kazemi, 24, and Sajjad Kashian, 27, with obtaining confidential U.S. voter information from at least one state election website, sending threatening email messages to intimidate and interfere with voters, and disseminating a video containing disinformation about purported election infrastructure vulnerabilities.”
The report said the state was not identified, and while the allegation was not that the Iranian government was involved directly, it appeared at least one of the suspects had worked for Tehran’s government.
“This indictment details how two Iran-based actors waged a targeted, coordinated campaign to erode confidence in the integrity of the U.S. electoral system and to sow discord among Americans,” Assistant Attorney General Matthew G. Olsen said in announcing the indictment. “The allegations illustrate how foreign disinformation campaigns operate and seek to influence the American public. The Department is committed to exposing and disrupting malign foreign influence efforts using all available tools, including criminal charges.”
The allegations include that there were attempts to compromise 11 state voter websites, with data on more than 100,000 voters stolen.
The report said the hackers posed as a “group of Proud Boys volunteers” and sent Facebook messages and emails to Republicans in Congress.
They also, allegedly, emailed Democrats and threatened physical injury if they did not change their party and vote for Trump, the report said.
