RT produced this report about a hacking competition for children, where it was revealed that subverting America’s election infrastructure doesn’t take the likes of a Kremlin über-hacker, like “Fancy Bear” – it turns out that 11-year-olds can do it.
The children’s contest was held at the Defcon Hackers’ Conference in Las Vegas over the past weekend, where an 11-year-old boy named Emmett Brewer took less than 10 minutes to hack into a replica of Florida’s election website and change election results. An 11-year-old girl named Audrey shown here succeeded in doing the same in 15 minutes.
The thumbnail I used for this post comes from CrowdStrike, the Eric Schmidt-linked hackers-finally-identified/">company hired by the FBI to investigate the DNC data breach, after their emails were published by WikiLeaks in 2016. CrowdStrike wrote a cute report about how “the nation-state adversary group known as FANCY BEAR,” was responsible for the “hack”. As of yet, no law enforcement has been permitted to directly investigate this crime, so central to the impeachment campaign against the US President.
This video is cute but the matter of election fraud and the vulnerability of US voting systems is deadly serious – and much more so than I had imagined prior to watching this 3-minute piece and reading this article.
Over the past 20 years, electronic voting machines have increasingly become the norm in US voting districts, the same period during which ownership of the various competing manufacturers, Smartmatic, Sequoia, Diebold, ES&S, Dominion and Hart InterCivic has come under the control of the same group of financiers. These platforms are now also networked to the same software engine. You can read all about how Crown agents, Lord Mark Malloch Brown and Sir Geoffrey E. Pattie brag about their ability to “bend” elections, while protected by the Queen here.
With the de-platforming and almost-complete un-personing of Alex Jones and with so many YouTubers using cats in their imagery to stump YouTube’s machine censors, the world has begun to feel like a bizarre dystopian novel with a villain named Fancy Bear.
