Dominion Machines in Michigan County Wide Open for Manipulation, Crucial Logs Missing, Forensic Audit Finds

By Al Perrotta Published on December 14, 2020

Now we know why Michigan’s Democratic Attorney General fought to seal a forensic audit of Dominion voting machines. 

The preliminary report, ordered released this morning by a Michigan judge, indicates the 16 Dominion machines examined in Antrim County were hopelessly compromised. And that crucial security and adjudication logs were removed. Antrim County is where thousands of votes were found to have mysteriously flipped from President Trump to Joe Biden. 

Said Russel Ramsland, Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group: 

Based on the preliminary results, we conclude that the errors are so significant that they call into question the integrity and legitimacy of the results in the Antrim County 2020 election to the point that the results are not certifiable. Because the same machines and software are used in 48 other counties in Michigan, this casts doubt on the integrity of the entire election in the state of Michigan. 

Ramsland’s team found that the Dominion system “is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systematic fraud and influence election results.”

But the question is, was their systematic fraud that influenced election results? You be the judge.

Force Errors That Force Adjudication, Which Allows for Manipulation

One of the “errors” in the Dominion system is to generate ballot errors. Those allow system users (whether here or abroad) to fix the election to their heart’s content. As the audit reported:

The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%). We observed an error rate of 68.05%. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.

This incredibly suspicious error rate is far out of line with the error rate in previous elections. It means nearly 70% of the ballots that went through the Dominion machines could be manipulated. 

Once a ballot was deemed to have an “error,” Dominion sent the ballot to “adjudication,” where it could easily be manipulated and turned into a vote for, well, whomever the person on the other end wants. As the report put it:

The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail.

Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch.

Put more simply:

“Adjudication files allow a computer operator to decide to whom to award those votes (or to trash them.”)” And do it anonymously. 

Override options were also enabled “thus allowing any operator to change those votes.”

The analysts also found evidence a “Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm” was enabled. This “allows the user to apply a weighted numerical value to candidates and change the overall result.” In other words, a vote for Biden can be given more value than a vote for Trump. Dominion’s own manual shows how.

In fact, here’s a video demonstration done in Georgia showing just how easy it is to create votes. This nice election supervisor does it in just about the time it takes to pull up a cute cat video.

What? The Adjudication Logs are Missing?!?!

So you can set the system to create errors, force the “error” ballots into adjudication, then have users fraudulently change the ballots to their liking. Certainly we can look at the adjudication logs and get a better idea of what happened in Michigan. Right? Wrong! “All adjudication logs entries for the 2020 election cycle are missing.”

You read that right. Even though the “computer system shows voted adjudication logs for prior years,” the ones for this disputed election are gone. Vanished. Erased. How convenient.

“Removal of these files violates state law and prevents a meaningful audit, even if the Secretary (of State) wanted to conduct an audit. We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed.” (Emphasis mine.)

Are you angry yet? Wait, there’s more.

And the Security Logs Too?

Somebody is cleaning up the scene of their crime. Security logs have also vanished.

Likewise, all server security logs prior to 11:03 pm on November 4, 2020 are missing. (Emphasis mine.) This means that all security logs for the day after the election, on election day, and prior to election day are gone. Security logs are very important to an audit trail, forensics, and for detecting advanced persistent threats and outside attacks, especially on systems with outdated system files. These logs would contain domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections to file servers between file accesses, internet connections, times, and data transfers. Other server logs before November 4, 2020 are present; therefore, there is no reasonable explanation for the security logs to be missing.

That’s not all.

“On November 21, 2020, an unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results. This demonstrates additional tampering with data.”

Will Anybody Do Anything About It?

So you have a system built for fraud, set to generate a massive number of errors that allowing corrupt parties easy access to fix nearly 70% of the votes going through. And you have security and adjudication logs that would provide a clearer understanding of what happened in the election removed, wiped away.

And you had Michigan’s Attorney General and Secretary of State fighting like mad to keep this forensic report from you. 

But you’re the crazy one for thinking the election stinks to high heaven. 

There’s much more to the report. You can read the full report here, in all its technically detailed glory. In fact, why not send it to your friends who insist the election of Joe Biden was on the level?

Then imagine the scale of election credibility. This was a forensic audit of Dominion machines in one Michigan county. Dominion machines were used in 48 Michigan counties, making the results in that state dubious. But Dominion was also used in 28 states in the U.S. Presidential Election, including swing states Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia. States where Biden was credited with very narrow wins. 

In Arizona, 200,000 votes were electronically adjudicated, without the GOP being able to look at a single one, according to Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward. Biden “won” by less than 11,000 votes. In Fulton County, Georgia alone, 106,000 out of 113,130 mail-in ballots were adjudicated, according to Georgia’s Elections Director Richard Barron. Biden “won” the state by less than 12,000 votes.

Will the stunning results of the forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems in Antrim County, Michigan open any eyes? Will any of other jurisdictions who used the made-for-manipulation machines now take a second look?

Will any law enforcement agency even bother to investigate who deleted the adjudication and security logs in Antrim County? Isn’t that a huge deal? Russia does a few Facebook posts in 2016 and we had a three year federal investigation. Where’s the FBI today? How about the cyber-security people over at DHS? We know where the media is.

Today, electors in the 28 states that used Dominion systems are meeting to select a president. If they do so without seriously considering what was found in Michigan, they do so with blinders on. God help a nation that stumbles forward in darkness.
