No surprise here. It’s George Soros. Now, why would he and his Open Society Foundations be pushing for voting online? Can you imagine how easy it would be to sway an election, if all the voting was done on the internet? I think that would be a dream come true for Mr. Soros and all those who do his bidding.
This information comes from leaked documents from Soros’s Open Society Foundations. A couple years ago in September, his foundation and partner grantees had a board meeting where they discussed possible executive actions that President Obama could take during the remainder of his time in office in order to bypass Congress on a number of issues. One issue was voting rights. Breitbart News quoted part of the 67-page leaked document:
“USP [the foundation’s U.S. Programs] will continue to fight against efforts to restrict voting rights, while supporting steps to improve voter participation and modernize voting procedures, such as on-line and same-day registration and expanded early voting. The Brennan Center, Demos and other grantees have engaged in litigation to expand access to registration and improve ease of voting.”
The document listed a number of executive action steps that the Obama administration could take to “ensure greater participation by eligible voters,” including online voting:
Direct Health and Human Services to ensure that the federally facilitated health-care exchanges created as part of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) incorporate voter registration opportunities as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA or “Motor Voter Act”), and direct federal agencies to find ways to increase voter participation nationwide.
Issue guidance interpreting the Americans with Disabilities Act with respect to accessibility of polling places, privacy when voting, and competence requirements.
Assist states with voter registration modernization efforts, including statewide database improvements, vote by mail, online registration and voting, and same-day registration.
Direct the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to develop new data collection points that provide greater insight into county-based Election Administration and the ways in which voters interact with electoral systems (i.e., number of votes cast, type of voting machines used, provisional ballot statistics, etc.)
While electronic voting machines have served as a stepping-stone to online voting, recent concerns about Russia’s involvement in our current voting systems may be temporarily forestalling those efforts.
If, say, Soros were the one who would be ordering and financing the hacking of our voting systems to ensure a Hillary presidency, there would be no concern from Homeland Security. But since the fear is that Russia will sway the election in Donald Trump’s favor, all of a sudden our voting systems are “critical infrastructure” that might require Homeland Security’s presence around the country.
If our current voting systems have been compromised, how much more will online voting be compromised? Of course, I think that’s the point. It’s a lot easier to control.
