Sidney Powell is right about the Venezuela angle in our election; Here are some helpful facts supporting her claims
American Thinker ^ | 11/24/2020 | Andrea Widburg

By the time you read this, Sidney Powell may have released her Kraken on America in the form of a filing about election events in Georgia. Until then, though, there is a healthy debate about whether Powell can make the case that Dominion and Smartmatic, both of which played a role in the disputed states, have Venezuela ties that prove their connection to American fraud. Roger L. Simon has entered the fray, detailing what two informants told him as background about these two companies and their ties to Venezuela.

Writing at the Epoch Times, Simon, who tackles facts like a rigorous reporter of old but with the grace of the screenwriter and novelist that he is, talked to two men with first-hand knowledge:

This [truly epic, international fraud] was corroborated by discussions I held with two men in a position to understand a great deal of this fraud that they say originated in and still emanates to a great degree from Venezuela (with a little help from Cuban, Iranian, and Hezbollah friends, possibly others).

These men wish to remain anonymous because they fear for their safety operating in foreign territory as they frequently do.

One of them is a former CIA officer who served in the Directorate of Operations and as chief of station in several countries. The other is of Venezuelan birth and lives in the United States.

The story is long and complicated, but Simon makes it easy to understand, so I urge you to take the time to read it. However, let me give you a brief overview:

In 2003, Venezuelan citizens signed a petition demanding that Hugo Chavez subject himself to a recall election. Chavez needed a way to count votes that would ensure victory. The answer came in the form of Smartmatic, which three Venezuelan engineers founded in Delaware in April 2000. In 2004, Cuban intelligence got a wealthy Venezuelan to invest $200,000 in Smartmatic. That businessman, allegedly, is under DEA protection now.

With that infusion of cash, and with Smartmatic counting the votes, Chavez won. Since then, Smartmatic has been trailing, ghostlike, around the world, wherever socialism and corrupt elections can be found. We know former deputy UN secretary-general Lord Malloch-Brown, a socialist friend of George Soros, has a role in it. A 2006 Wikileaked email still tied it to Venezuela. The same email said that, through its subsidiary, Sequoia, Smartmatic was moving into U.S. elections.

But what about Dominion? Simon explains the connection:

Well, in 2010, after working more than five years for Smartmatic, the former vice president, development at Sequoia who was also their chief software architect, Eric Coomer, went over to Dominion Voting Systems as vice president of U.S. engineering.

Coomer is an active participant in something called the IEEE common data format for election systems. It’s all enmeshed.

I remind everyone that the US is currently in a State of Emergency under Trump’s EO regarding foreign interference in our elections, which was signed years ago.

Maybe I am missing something, but I didn’t take Powell’s comments to mean that she was blaming Venezuela for interfering in our election.

I took it to mean: 1) this vote stealing software system exists; 2) it has been used in Venezuela to steal elections we have actual proof of that and it is an established fact; and 3) we will offer proof and have evidence that it was used in the 2020 election.

Seems like a great way to build a case to me.

“I remind everyone that the US is currently in a State of Emergency under Trump’s EO regarding foreign interference in our elections, which was signed years ago.”

And I remind everyone that Special Forces was recently moved and is now under POTUS/CiC control.

Sidney Powell says that she has a government official from Venezuela ( now a US resident ) who knows about the Smartmatic/Dominion software and how they are designed to manipulate elections who has given a sworn affidavit and is willing to testify in a court of law about it.

Is this a useless exercise by your lights?

It has also been used in other Socialist countries
to affect elections (according to Powell).

And apparently, it has now been used in the U.S. to implement a Socialist Government.

It’s significant....but not the basis of a strong case. I don’t think it’s meant to be , though

Right-Socialism is SO wonderful it has to be smuggled in the back door where ever it goes.

Please....

It’s not workable anywhere it was shoved down peoples’ throats. It didn’t even work in Russia where they invented it.... they can’t even export it successfully!!!

Wherever it is, you see poverty, lack of mobility, totally limited opportunity, NO social mobility, widespread discord, social instability, an overly dominant ‘government’, a level and kind of de humanizing inequity that NO ONE EARTH talks about....etc. The list is endless.

The Russians I meet personally, are always real clear on the evils of Socialism. Only stupid, spoiled American students, greedy, overindulged minorities and social misfits WANT a Socialist system. ‘Subservience’ is the thing they have been conditioned to ‘need’. The NEA and the MSM did a real job on them.

Does anybody know of an Excel spreadsheet type analysis of the last three presidential elections? It would need to be a complete, yet concise set of data, showing vote totals for each state for the Ds, Rs and the other parties combined.

I think comparisons of vote totals and vote percentages would more than likely validate what Sidney Powell has claimed. It would be interesting to see if MI, WI, PA, GA, AZ really do have substantial, disproportionate vote totals and percentages compared to previous elections and compared to the other blue states in this election.

Interesting... Smartmatic was founded by 3 Venezuelan engineers in Biden’s state of Delaware in April 2000... before the infamous Gore War recount in Florida which would later lead to Smartmatic making lots of money.
