“Separate is Inherently UNEQUAL.”

Official Campaign Statement

On Election Security

 

 

A policy centered review of the

 

 

SSCI Report

On Russian Active Measures Campaigns

 

and Interference

In the 2016 US Election

 

Volume 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on Russian Active Measures Campaigns and Interference in the 2016 U.S. Election”

 

I_page_3I_page_36BBB_I_page_38

 

According to the report, the Russian Government exploited the seams between federal authorities and protections for the states. BY DESIGN, the individual states were left to decide what action should be taken to stop interference, and how serious the threats being relayed from DHS and the FBI really were.

If we do not STAND UP and PROTECT the states, the United States Government is derelict in its DUTY.

 

 

 

 

 

The Threat We Face

 

 

 

T_page_8

 

THIS is the threat we face. This is just ONE ACTOR, and this is just the information that has been VOLUNTEERED… the full scope of what has happened, and what is ONGOING, has not yet been fully understood because reporting is NOT mandatory.

 

E_page_11

 

“IF some states evaluated their logs incompletely or inaccurately, then DHS might have NO INDICATION…” Financially speaking, smaller states might have a harder time dedicating the necessary FUNDING to secure elections. CRIMINALLY speaking, that’s 50 different chances for success.

 

T_page_10

They were “casing the joint”. Watching, waiting until the OWNERS were out of town… or NOT PAYING ATTENTION due to some sort of DISTRACTION… like an “emergency”.

 

T_page_12T_page_23

 

In at least ONE INSTANCE they were on the BRINK of what they were looking for:

 

T_page_24

 

IF the Russians can’t change vote totals, why should we be so concerned?

Chaos on election day. The ability to RAISE DOUBT in our MINDS about our system… to make EVERY AMERICAN question their national self-worth.

 

T_page_34

 

Consider the following scenario:

 

t_page_23-2.png

 

“… hitting the SBE IP addresses 5 TIMES PER SECOND, 24 HOURS A DAY…” for a month.

The “… IT staff took the website and database offline.” It was being probed and ATTACKED for THREE WEEKS before detection. A sophisticated operation run by a FOREIGN NATION is what we are seeing. WHAT IF this were to play out in the days before an election? Strategically, HOW should we answer that?

 

… with THIS?

 

T_page_57

 

The RUSSIAN GRU, against Jill down at CITY HALL?! I wish her luck, BUT… she’s going to need some ASSISTANCE!

 

AAA_Threat_we_face_2

 

“Russia’s going to DO IT AGAIN because they think this was successful.”

 

The vulnerabilities found in your PC are also found in our election systems. The level of technical knowledge required to carry out these operations is HIGH, but once understood they can be applied universally… all you need to do is LEARN THE CODE.

 

T_page_42

 

… and they ARE learning. Everything they can get their hands on.

 

T_page_26

 

When you consider their goals and what has happened since the 2016 election…

They achieved their mission objectives.

 

aaa_threat_we_face.png

 

… and this is only ONE BATTLE. We have elections every TWO YEARS.

They WILL be back.

 

 

 

 

 

“When someone says, ‘we’re from the government and we’re here to help,’ it’s generally not a good thing.”

 

 

 

Why IS that? Oh… right. Because when government is executed POORLY:

Because LIVES ARE AT RISK. On this I don’t mean to sound partisan, because I can sit here and cuss out BUSH, and YOU could sit there and cuss CLINTON… and then back round we’ll go again, with the NEXT president chasing the SAME SCANDLES… chasing our OWN TAILS. BOTH, extreme examples of their party. BOTH elected by a MINORITY, and at the end of the day, BOTH presidents were correct. BOTH seen in the eyes of THE LAW, as legally JUST in their actions. Our legal framework, stretched and bent in the hands of two VERY DIFFERENT individuals… BOTH backed by the SAME CORRUTION.

 

Now imagine if we were to elect someone without ALL THAT BAGGAGE. Someone who represents the MAJORITY of the nation and finds the actions of BOTH PARTIES to be… lacking.

 

 

Government is NOT THE PROBLEM.

The problem, is the CORRUPTION of both MAN and INSTITUTION.

 

Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

Because the CHOICE is QUITE CLEAR… we must CELEBRATE OUR RULE OF LAW.

In an attempt to secure voting machines, FMR DHS Sec. Johnson designated them as critical infrastructure, opening up more assistance to states who needed it.

The move was seen by some as an attempted hostile takeover.

The Committee clearly expresses the benefits of DECENTRALIZED ELECTION SYSTEMS:

 

E_page_5

 

… and I AGREE. The unique character of EVERY STATE must be respected and it is IGNORANT for the federal government to presume to know what’s best for everyone. But this problem is bigger than any ONE STATE:

 

E_page_49

E_page_28

 

The negligence, limited ability, or EGO of officials in ONE STATE could disenfranchise HALF the nation. To do away with the benefits we currently have would be FOOLISH… so we must seek to add a NATIONAL LAYER OF SECURITY. An UMBRELLA OF PROTECTION that encompasses everyone, equally. A uniform, verifiable level of SECURITY that centers on the NEEDS of EACH STATE so they can incorporate their systems seamlessly, and communication can start to FLOW.

 

E_page_60

 

E_page_55E_page_55 (2)

 

We will not sacrifice LIBERTY for SECURITY. We will RE-AFFIRM our commitment to LIBERTY by ensuring it STAYS SECURE.

We must HANG TOGETHER:

 

E_page_20 (2)E_page_4 (2)

 

This is a YEAR-ROUND operation:

 

E_page_5(2)

Our response should be 24-7-365.

 

Consider what’s at stake… the every EXISTANCE of our Constitution. We are engaged in an intellectual war of WORDS. The societal upheaval and political turmoil are side-effects. Fear and division, being stoked by corruption and greed… causing real-life casualties via our inability to unite and solve problems.

 

 

 

 

To Establish a Clearly Defined Protocol

“For want of the price of tea and a slice, the old man died.” –Pink Floyd, Us and Them.

 

I support ALL conclusions reached within the SSCI report. My campaign has advocated for many of the proposed safeguards from its inception and I believe we must act NOW rather than later. In order to CLARIFY… to ensure the WILL of the people, we must know elections are secure. LET THERE BE NO DOUBT! When the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE is heard loud and clear, the SOLUTIONS to our problems will be REALIZED.

 

E_page_54 (2)E_page_58 (2)

 

ANY Election Security plan we choose to implement should include an ACTIVE DEFENSE STRATEGY to compliment our PASSIVE DEFENSES. Digital threats evolve constantly, hence the constant UPDATE NOTIFICATIONS on all of our electronic devices. ACTIVELY seeking out new threats and staying ahead of the curve, being prepared for “… the attack after the NEXT”, will ensure our systems stay on the cutting edge and maintain invulnerability. Maintaining Security is less costly than the alternative.

While working in concert with the private sector is always a good thing, it should be under the direct supervision and leadership of the United States Government. Independent verification of compliance, assembly of products, planning and strategy development, seasonal work force employment, among many others… but bulk of the load should be carried by the Federal Government.

 

P_page_58

 

If we’re not careful, that “vulture” could turn out to be a “Russian Bear” in disguise.

 

P_page_57

 

Placing a burden of such magnitude on state governments will make an already detrimental fiscal situation even worse. If it’s voluntary, then officials will elect to put it off due to other priorities that may or may not be in the interest of other states.

Securing our elections is in the interest of EVERY STATE.

Every proposed solution can be implemented, and MUST be implemented. MONEY will decide IF and WHEN they will be.

 

E_page_59E_page_59 (2)E_page_61

 

$400 MILLION DOLLARS upfront and $20 MILLION PER YEAR every year after… that sounds like a SMALL PRICE TO PAY for OPEN and SECURE election systems.

 

 

 

 

 

In Conclusion

 

C_page_39

 

“One state official said, ‘We need to walk a fine line between being forthcoming to the public and protecting voter confidence.'”

We can now see when decisions of such importance are left in the hands of a FEW individuals, it endangers ALL OF US. If we had full capabilities to monitor and detect the developing situation with Russian interference, we could have informed the people and they could have decided the best course of action at the BALLOT BOX.

VOTER EMPOWERMENT.

Instead, they were kept in the dark and forced to make an UNINFORMED DECISION.

 

The United States must establish its dominance in the world of cybersecurity and maintain operational supremacy so it can act decisively to INFORM THE PEOPLE in a timely manner. THE PEOPLE will always make the best decision when they are FULLY INFORMED.

 

When in doubt, FULL DISCLOSURE-

LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE.

Official Campaign Statement on the SSCI Report on Russian Active Measures in the 2016 Election: “United We STAND…”

 

..American socketWhat’s the FIRST THING that comes to mind when you see one of these?

 

“SWEET… hey! Can I plug my phone in?”

“OUCH! Don’t put your finger in there!”

Or maybe, just simply “… does it WORK?”

 

There are MANY questions that can come to mind. An endless stream of possibilities of all shapes and sizes. Thankfully, there’s one question no one has think about:

 

“If I plug this in, will it be destroyed?”

 

A consistent flow of POWER. From my living room here in KCK, to the halls of Harvard or Yale. Wherever you see one of these, whatever device you plug into it will get a pre-determined, regulated flow of power. No matter what State you’re in, in every city, in every building, as required by law.

This assurance makes creating ways of utilizing that POWER much easier and more effective. Producing products tailor-made to work specifically in EACH STATE would be costly, and consumers would have to remember WHAT can be used and in WHICH State. Every time we move to a different State, we’d have to ADAPT to a different regulation of POWER. Some States would have MORE power flowing to the PEOPLE, and others… LESS.

Some States believe government isn’t the answer to ANY of our problems, so there might be some States where the guarantee of an even distribution of POWER doesn’t exist. Some cities in that State might receive TOO MUCH power at one particular time, while at the SAME TIME other cities have NO POWER. Of course elected officials would want to make sure ALL citizens had access to SOME power. After all… the interests of the people who DOLE that power out have to be considered, too…

The establishment of a nationwide infrastructure to provide consistent POWER for ALL PEOPLE paved the way for advances in technology that were unimaginable before it was accomplished. People lived their entire lives not knowing that power was available to them. Once it was established that EVERYONE should have access, people began to see the POTENTIAL that power held, and they IMAGINED new ways for that power to be harnessed, directed toward making the lives of EVERYONE better.

 

Our Government ensures the flow of POWER for THE PEOPLE.

 

Un-regulated flow of POWER is dangerous. If not given PROPER OVERSIGHT it can spark flames that can consume entire cities. That’s why great care and attention should be paid to EVERY STEP of the process; from the point of creation, to its distribution, to the utilization of that POWER by the products we’ve created from it… as well as what will BE created from it.

The good realized from an un-regulated flow of power is miniscule compared to what CAN be achieved when that SAME POWER is harnessed and guided under a watchful eye. Today, we CELEBRATE because it’s equally available for ALL, and we’re appalled when we find it’s been withheld from others.

 

Before the last World War, the impetus for what would eventually become the infrastructure for the electrification of the entire country, came from OUR government. The advancements in the lives of every citizen since have been astonishing, and it begs the question: “Is your life better off NOW than it was 75 YEARS AGO?”

If we spend just a little bit of time NOW, and focus ALL of our passions toward achieving the unthinkable… imagine what could be 75 years FROM now.

 

Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

End The Electoral College.

A Scout is Reverent

REJOICE! Today is a good day. Today, Our Constitution STILL STANDS, our Rule of Law still reigns SUPREME! The balance conceived over 200 years ago still weathers the storms. Liberty still stands to fight another day!

Even as our enemy celebrates victory with a PUPPET in power! Truly, could you have imagined this, 20 years ago… 30 years ago? To pose such a theory would have turned the faces of generals white.

BUT THEY HAVE NOT WON! The fight STILL rages. Our Bill of Rights still ensures it! Yes, the enemy has positioned the battlefield within our operational space, within our system of governance itself. BUT… they failed to see the GENIUS of the system. The absolute universal balance. The careful consideration the Framers of the Constitution weighed their conception of governance upon.

The Framers were not simple people! They were wealthy, world travelers, and studied text from nations across the world. The study of systems of governance that failed thousands of years before, produced ANSWERS as to why and how. Finding answers to the questions raised by those failures, would need a Revolutionary approach. A system of self-rule, but acknowledging the nature of Man itself.

How to create a secular system of governance with a “religious/biblical” execution of Justice? It is a system with NO State religion. NO test or requirement of religious faith. But, BOY! If you look REAL CLOSE… maybe squint just a little…

This is no coincidence! Unfortunately, many religious zealots use this as evidence to support the idea that the Framers REALLY wanted this to be a Christian nation. Many of those same people fail to realize Jesus would have studied the religious texts of his time, and the text that came before those… some of which we might not even know existed! There are ancient religious texts that predate The Bible by thousands of years. ALL of them have wise teachings. ALL of them helped shape what would one day become the ACTIONS and teachings written about hundreds of years later. Both the good lessons, captured and saved, and the bad lessons, not recounted but remembered and used as guideposts in the future.

To learn, and create a BETTER WAY.

The Framers of OUR Constitution took this into consideration as they worked to create a new form of government. To ensure a UNIVERSAL sense of Justice. NOT simply a system of right and wrong, but a set of Laws in accordance with the Laws of Nature. A system in balance eternally.

And today, CELEBRATE IT!🎉 Because it IS official… “IT’S ALIVE!”🇺🇸

It is HERE, in our nation’s darkest hours, we can see the brilliance radiating out. STILL STANDING as a beacon to ALL who yearn to live FREE! Because we live within it, we have forgotten how BEAUTIFUL the light can be. Because we still stand, we know it is NOT our darkest day. Here, standing upon the precipice… if we dare stick out our neck, just a little… we can see how far down this hole we COULD fall.

Imagine an election, similar to 2016, but the roles REVERSED. If Hillary Clinton had won the election by Electoral College and Donald Trump had won the popular vote by MILLIONS.

… do you think Donald Trump would concede and go back to Land Developement?

Look at the publicly reported propaganda campaign launched on the American Electorate. If Donald Trump LOST the Electoral College vote but won the popular vote, he would have taken the whole thing to court. Some of the “irregularities” we  know of now have been reported AFTER Inaguration Day.

ALL of the Presidential Election Laws that have NEVER been tried in a Court of Law stand NAKED to attack via a candidate who challenges the results of an election. The length of time to properly adjudicate these cases, as demonstrated in the 2000 election, could surpass the certification date. Worse yet, evidence could lead to a challenge in the middle of a sitting President’s term.

The Courts would decide.

The evidence presented might not compel ONE court to side with the candidate, but imagine on appeal… in a 5-4 Supreme Court decision. A SITTING PRESIDENT, removed from office. Replaced by a candidate INSTALLED by the Courts… The danger of untried, undefined Constitutional Law.

Hillary Clinton has every right to challenge the results of the 2016 election. Just looking at the de-classified account of events, imagine what is yet unknown… would she? Of course not. She is a PATRIOT, who SERVES this country with HONOR and would not want to see such a horrifying outcome.

Would Donald Trump? He LOSES the Electoral vote, disappears into his golden penthouse for SIX MONTHS, then emerges with a full beard, wearing a flannel shirt, preaching that we need to STOP GLOBAL WARMING… right.

The path has been walked. The trail has been made. It is not a question of IF… the path will be followed again. If it’s not already in the works, it will be someday. We ignore this FATAL FLAW at our own peril! It is the crack in the finish, the rust below the surface. The Classic piece of machinery DOOMED by a lack of desire to see it fixed, or a lack of knowledge, unaware there is still more work to be done. “If only we had known…”

We celebrate Our Constitution, not simply because it is ours. We celebrate Our Constitution because it is a document WORTHY of our CELEBRATION! We must upgrade the outdated firewall, the flawed security system called The Electoral College. History shows us the FLAWS… there is a BETTER WAY.

Cookie-Cutter Tin-Pot Dictatorship

Imagine the possible outcome of that… Isolated pockets of ideologically pure groups, spread over a VAST distance and unable to organize. Barriers erected, both physical and mental, stopping the free flow of ideas and the communion of countrymen, matriarchs and mothers.

Laws passed to suppress one group of people are seen as frivolous and not impactful in ONE city, and in another… families are terrorized and live in fear, constantly keeping watch, to avoid being destroyed by a family member being deported to a country THEY’VE NEVER KNOWN.

But, that city that does not fear the unfair deportation of “OTHERS”, faces other laws that can destroy THEIR way of life. To artificially shift the judgement, shift the blame… to speak out against oppression is difficult to justify when “money is TIGHT”, and “good jobs are hard to find”…

“Keep your head down, don’t draw attention, and this, TOO, shall pass.”

When MOUTHS need fed and BILLS need paid, that fear of losing it ALL focuses the mind… just as intended.

The only hope for anyone trying to make ends meet, especially with dependents, is the STRENGTH found in a team. Two people, COMMITTED to making a family successful, working to make things better for themselves and also, the future…

“Let’s make sure HALF of the population can only make $0.75 on the dollar compared to the OTHER HALF.” — Lawmakers.

And as we see more families with TWO PARENTS working full-time jobs just to make ends meet, in the middle of it all stands the FUTURE of Our Nation, watching the insanity and only wanting ONE THING- To live in PEACE with their parents in safety.

But the answers they are given don’t seem to fit in with the realities they face. The anxiety at home due to the stress of the family, the anxiety at school due to the constant fear of the unknown assailant.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to provide the safety these children need at school?

A: Wealthy, geriatric men in the District of Columbia who DEPEND on money from gun lobbies to get re-elected.

 

Q: Who knows BEST how to break the cycle of BOOM and BUST our financial institutions are ENABLING? When they SPECULATE on barrels of FUEL, or WHEAT for our BREAD, or CORN for our CATTLE… Who should be TRUSTED to legislate a SOUND framework, to protect BOTH the people AND the financial institutions from Criminal Behavior?

A: The ELECTED OFFICALS who rely on DONATIONS FROM the SAME financial institutions, and oil companies, and Agra-business. DONATIONS from organizations composed of a… Complex. Of producers and manufactures who supply the Military and Law Enforcement communities… FOR THEIR RE-ELECTION.

 

“But… this is an OUTRAGE! We should PROTEST!”

And, as we saw during the Occupy movement, Laws have been created to keep THAT to a minimum. Any susstained effort make REAL and LASTING fiscal policy change happen in the interest of THE PEOPLE is SILENCED by any means necessary.

 

“We’ll camp RIGHT HERE on this PUBLIC LAND until…”

“… that’s no longer public land, move along.”

 

So it seems pointless to SCREAM and SPEAK OUT, as a single mother loses her home to the bank through foreclosure, and as a grandmother is tossed from her home, with so little to fall back on… After a while, the story is repeated. A new face, another community. Houses boarded up, cul-de-sacs empty. “Things were just starting to turn around from the LAST TIME this happened.”

… and the time before that.

In times past… yes, back in my day… the knowledge of the past was a privileged resource, available only to those with the means to attain it. So, children with parents who had education and upward mobility would naturally be exposed to knowledge and receive guidance, but also take them TO THE KNOWLEDGE… at the library.

The ability to provide the opportunity to learn was dependent on the knowledge of the parents. Children of single-parent homes, or parents with minimal education, work MORE HOURS and have LESS TIME to devote to important support for their kids… and the CYCLE CONTINUED.

Today, the KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAST is fully available in the POCKET of EVERY CHILD. Where, as a child, I would ask questions of my parents and if they didn’t know, the out-of-date encyclopedia from 1971 MIGHT have the answer… The knowledge known only to a few in times past, is now TRIVIAL PURSUIT to the youth today. The political hypocrisy of the past is simply OUTDATED RHETORIC in the eyes of a kid with an iPhone-

 

“Voter fraud is a threat to democracy!”

“… I have FIVE SOURCES that say THAT is a lie.”

 

“Abstinence is the best way to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancy.”

“… statistics show that EDUCATION starting at an early age AND safe sex practices work more effectively… FALSE.”

 

“A ‘Good Guy’ with a gun is the answer to a ‘Bad Guy’ with a gun.”

“Hold on. Let me ask David Hogg about that one… he just said “that’s bullshit”.

 

The advancement of technology has SKEWED the playing field. The “adults” now have the knowledge and skills of a child, and the child now has the knowledge and TOOLS of a Statesman or a Diplomat.

The ability to deceive and successfully manipulate messages to fit different audiences has become an Historical Artifact, a relic of a time gone by. To “play to the base” inorder to secure a primary nomination, then swing your political views back to a moderate stance for the general election, is FANTASY in the era of live stream, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.

GOOD RIDDANCE! to the liar and manipulator! Two-faced and deceptive, they play their games and keep score with the LIVES lost. They pick up the pieces that were lost by families who’s lives have been shaken and destroyed, put them back together, then sell them to the highest bidder… for personal gain.

And MOST of us can only GRIN and BEAR IT. Unable to do ANYTHING because we are the provider for a family, we swallow our pride… hoping to provide a strong foundation for OUR CHILDREN to one day RISE UP and DEMAND the change…

 

demand the change.
