Oh, wowzers, I missed this. It starts with military intelligence dude who knows how to run whois, but then after there's a whole nother exhibit starting at page 20.

Akamai was also in on the election rigging.

China, is not the only nation involved in COTS provided to election machines or the networking but so is Germany via a LAOS founded Chinese linked cloud service company that works with SCYTL named Akamai Technologies that have offices in China and are linked to the server that Dominion Software.

And now somehow the Swisspost online voting system makes an appearance.

The actual use of trapdoor commitments in Bayer-Groth proofs demonstrate the implications for the verifiability factor. This means that no one can SEE what is going on during the process of the “shuffling” therefore even if you deploy an algorithms or manual scripts to fractionalize or distribute pooled votes to achieve the outcome you wish – you cannot prove they are doing it! See STUDY : “The use of trapdoor commitments in Bayer-Groth proofs and the implications for the verifiability of the Scytl-SwissPost Internet voting system”

This then descends into some madness about a zero knowledge proof being proof of zero integrity. And then there's some more algorithmic analysis bananas. And now circling back with a few more Akamai facts.

Wisconsin has EDGE GATEWAY port which is AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES based out of GERMANY. Using AKAMAI Technologies is allowing .gov sites to obfuscate and mask their systems by way of HURRICANE ELECTRIC (he.net) Kicking it to anonymous (AKAMAI Technologies) offshore servers.

Preserving this important testimony from the Michigan election hearing before "they" take it down.


@TepidButterASMR: Poll watcher in Michigan testifying that black lives matter people wore rhinestones. This was a problem for her.

@TepidButterASMR: This man walked up, swore himself in, and he's talking about his internet radio show. https://pic.twitter.com/DHYFAknPic

@TepidButterASMR: In his experience hosting an internet radio show he saw the voting machines connected to a router.

@TepidButterASMR: He is now crying because he needs proof the votes are valid (not that they were fraudulent) or they will not accept the results. Now getting applause.

@TepidButterASMR: This is Dave. Dave is struggling a little but to get his story out. His proof of fraud is that they stopped counting at night and in the morning when they restarted it was too quiet in the room.

@TepidButterASMR: This is Robin she just said "cock blocking" she refused to wear a mask correctly and was harassed. She follows that up by saying "ADA" with no other explanation. https://pic.twitter.com/wNRe95P6sY

@TepidButterASMR: She keeps going over her time and everyone wants her to stop.

@TepidButterASMR: Here's Bill. I'm not sure what he's doing here. He doesn't seem positive either. He says the counting room was hot, he carried a thermometer that said 85 degrees. https://pic.twitter.com/FraV3sfp4k

@TepidButterASMR: Here's Matt, he loves FREEDOM. He was at the stop the steal rally. He wasn't a poll watcher. He is saying Obamas reign of destruction was caused by dominion voting machines. His testimony is about signs he saw at a rally. https://pic.twitter.com/zVlMiNzyzv

@TepidButterASMR: Mr Parker. He said he got tired waiting to get into watch the votes being counted and left. He thinks because of this they should pass a law to redo the entire election. https://pic.twitter.com/ylkdzevKQh

@TepidButterASMR: Polly. She said that so many ballots were only for Biden with nothing down ballots selected. She says the electors should elect Trump because that means it's fraud. https://pic.twitter.com/M8fF4qthR4

@TepidButterASMR: Vickie. An Asian man brought in ballots to be counted. That's it. That was her whole story. https://pic.twitter.com/cN2sLg8rFu

@TepidButterASMR: Vickie. A lot of the ballot envelopes were closed with packaging tape. She saw workers that had pens. https://pic.twitter.com/vLi5I4Z6fB

@TepidButterASMR: Now @SenPeterJLucido is asking questions but his question sounds like it was supposed to be for a different witness because she doesn't know what he's talking about.

@TepidButterASMR: John says ballots arrived to be counted after the "election deadline" which doesn't exist. He's now yelling. https://pic.twitter.com/7Y4A0fp5Ni

@TepidButterASMR: Terri said she saw a video at someones house that poll workers were told to be mean to her, she thinks maybe on YouTube. https://pic.twitter.com/vxRKjEd83d

@TepidButterASMR: Ronna Ross. You'll never guess. She felt harassed. She switched lanyards and lied about her party affiliation which she just admitted. There was not any signage for signing in and out, that was it. https://pic.twitter.com/EP9hoCRhAR

@TepidButterASMR: Eugene Greenstein. Absentee ballots are all fraudulent. He said he hadn't heard anyone else say this. https://pic.twitter.com/k1M6xllw8Z

@TepidButterASMR: Ms Halpert. People were mean. She said someone brandished a letter opener. Workers took to long to count military ballots, possibly on purpose. https://pic.twitter.com/rHrJHR3sPr

Today's legal learning: if you want the court to do something in a hurry, you have to explain why. The magic word "emergency" is not by itself sufficient.

While the caption of the motion includes the word “emergency” and the attached proposed order seeks an “expedited” injunction, neither the motion nor the proposed order indicate whether the plaintiffs are asking the court to act more quickly or why. As indicated, the motion does not request a hearing. It does not propose a briefing schedule.


(There is also a rather cynical theory that the word emergency is there because it looks good on twitter, but not asking for an immediate ruling allows the court case to remain in progress for a longer time frame, but that's too much 4D chess for me to believe.)

There is a school of thought that you don't add another s to a possessive name that already ends in s. As in Jones' vs Jones's.

They are wrong for many reasons, but here's another. If you ever write such a name and it finds its way into a redacted document, the trailing apostrophe gives away the last letter of the name.

Today marks one week out from safe harbor deadline for electoral college. Which honestly isn't significant, or much of a deadline, but it's one stop closer to the end of this circus.

We are receiving reports that the dems are in a blind panic because their fraud is being exposed. Or will be in a panic when they realize what's happening. Or should be in a panic except they're too stupid. Unfortunately, the reports about who, when, and why people should panic are somewhat garbled. Hoping the events of the next few days bring some clarity to who's panicking.

Prediction: not much is going to change, and the apparent election result, as reported by the leftist media, will become the actual election result.

More speculatively, Jenna Ellis will post a dozen more tweets condescendingly reminding the media that Article II exists. But low confidence for that estimate. She could go nuts and post two dozen tweets. Or more.

Of course, that's my own biased view. Apparently I'm low information. So I guess the question the other way is what is CNN going to do when Trump is inaugurated? Will they air a fake moon landing style inauguration with Biden to keep the sheeple complacent?

From a cognitive perspective, I'm curious what people think when they see comments like "Looking forward to the 4D chess spin from the snake handlers how it’s all been part of the plan."
