11 yr old hacks replica election office website in 10 minutes

The website r00tz.org put on a challenge this weekend to hack a replica of the election office website.  An 11-yr old girl was able to hack it in 10 minutes.  r00tz.org is “A place where kids learn white-hat hacking to better the world”.  Gives you a nice warm fuzzy feeling inside that it can be hacked that easily, right?

The election security budget for 2018 was $380 million dollars.  It should give one pause when a little girl can hack an election website that could be in a swing state in 10 minutes.

The takeaway message is clear.  Ensuring a high level of election security is very hard.  Electronic voting, while no doubt easier to tally votes, is also several levels of magnitude harder to defend against cyber threats, both from without and within.  As if a Soros voting machine gave one a warm fuzzy feeling to begin with.

No.  Go back to paper ballots and require voter ID.  The Democrats are caught.  You can’t whinge on about MUH RUSSIA on the one hand and cry that voter ID is racist because reasons on the other and expect us to allow these contradicting views to continue.  Use it against them.  If Russia truly is as dangerous in election meddling as you’ve been crying about for over two years now, then buckle down and eliminate that chance with paper ballots and voter ID.  That’s it.

The mid-term elections are right around the corner and there will inevitably be some foul play afoot.  Consider even now the special election in Ohio last week.  This article from Breitbart goes into detail how Soros has tried to obstruct attempts of improving election security.  Sorry, but I have a hard time believing there are 170 registered voters in just ONE Ohio district over 116 YEARS OLD.  Are there even 170 116 year olds in all of America?  Something tells me those 116 year olds weren’t voting Republican.

Nunes suggests paper ballots

Rep. Devin Nunes recently suggested banning electronic voting systems due to security concerns.  Via The Washington Times:

“The one thing we’ve been warning about for many, many years on the intelligence committee is about the electronic voting systems. Those are really dangerous in my opinion, and should not be used,” Mr. Nunes, California Republican, said in an interview aired Thursday on Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

“I think anybody that does that, and that’s communicating over the web, it’s going to be a challenge. So you have to make sure that you limit that as much as possible, and we need a paper trail so that you can go back in case you have to do a manual recount,” Mr. Nunes added.

The congressman suggested banning electronic voting systems in response to a question raised concerning the state of election security, and particularly whether the November 2018 midterms will be able to withstand any potential interference on par with efforts waged during the 2016 U.S. presidential race.

It’s safe to assume Rep. Nunes has more information than we have to deal with regarding election security.  He knows the hacking attempts and the voter fraud that’s occurred in the past election.  And I’m sure it’s much worse and much more rampant than the traitorous MSM has let on.  But not from Russia.  Lax voter ID laws I’m sure have led to massive amounts of illegals voting and being completely covered up.  It’s a great idea and I think ultimately is a major backfire against the Democrats.  All the hysteria they’ve drummed up about Russia meddling with our election yet their constant screaming that voter ID would be racist somehow to certain groups of people puts them in a real bind.  You can’t tighten up voter security without hurting a constituent that would be voting heavily in favor of the left.  Paper ballots greatly reduce a lot of security risks and also I’m sure makes it much harder to commit election fraud on a broad scale.

Supreme Court rules in favor of Ohio to purge voter rolls

Common sense here, and it needs to happen everywhere.  Via AP:

States can target people who haven’t cast ballots in a while in efforts to purge their voting rolls, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a case that has drawn wide attention amid stark partisan divisions and the approach of the 2018 elections.

By a 5-4 vote that split the conservative and liberal justices, the court rejected arguments in a case from Ohio that the practice violates a federal law intended to increase the ranks of registered voters. A handful of other states also use voters’ inactivity to trigger processes that could lead to their removal from the voting rolls.

But, the libs are up in arms anyways.

The four liberal justices dissented, and civil rights groups and some Democrats warned that more Republican-led states could enact voter purges similar to Ohio’s.

Ohio is of particular interest nationally because it is one of the larger swing states in the country with the potential to determine the outcome of presidential elections. But partisan fights over ballot access are playing out across the country. Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to suppress votes from minorities and poorer people who tend to vote for Democrats. Republicans have argued that they are trying to promote ballot integrity and prevent voter fraud.

Think about who the real racists are here.  So what you’re saying is minorities aren’t capable of fulfilling even the barest of minimum requirements?  This is essentially their argument for why we shouldn’t have voter ID either.

Given the number of cases of alleged voter fraud, or dead people voting, this is common sense reform.  There is zero downside to doing this if the goal is free and fair elections.  If you want to vote, you should care enough to fill out the damn card they send in the mail.  If you throw it out, as was one of the arguments in the article, maybe you shouldn’t be voting in the first place?  It’s not asking the world of someone to do a little research and put a little effort in to vote for our elected officials.
