Foreign Influence in the 2020 General Election

Was there foreign influence in the 2020 General Election? As the election fraud investigation and litigation continues, speculation surrounding these three companies, Dominion, Scytl, and Smartmatic has led to many theories. It is increasingly difficult to find the correct information for several reasons. Firstly, these companies historically have been very secretive and cryptic with insight into their ownership. To make things more complicated, these companies have partnered with, sold, and acquired other companies who, at times, have changed their names.

To make matters worse, as Americans started scouring the internet for more information, these companies began “scrubbing” details that were once listed online. However, as good internet sleuths do, most of this information was preserved on archiving websites. The more important observation here is that these companies raced to delete any connection with each other, the problem is there was already too much evidence of their connections.

As noted in previous articles by New Right Network, Dominion is a Canadian based company with US headquarters located in Denver, Colorado. However, it is important to note the history of these other companies as well. These companies are interconnected through name changes, acquisitions, shell companies, and holding companies. It is troubling that transparency into their ownership and financial backing is not clear. What is even more troubling is that they all appear to have foreign ties.

Syctl Located in Barcelona, Spain

Syctl is a Barcelona based company that provides many election products all over the world, including the United States. Syctl says it is a “leader in digital voting and electoral modernization.” Syctl was formed in 2001 and recently filed bankruptcy in 2020, but was acquired by a company called “Service Point Solutions” which is part of the “Paragon Group.” It is not initially clear who the “Paragon Group” is, where they are located, or who owns them. A search for this leads to multiple different companies, none of them with a clear tie to either Scytl or Service Point Solutions.

In 2012 Syctl acquired a company called SOE Software.  SOE is run out of Tampa, Florida. SOE Software Corp was founded in 2002 by Mark Schneider. Initially, claims of Syctl being connected to Dominion were refuted. However, New Right Network was able to find a “request for information” prepared exclusively for “the state of Colorado” which was presented by Michael Greenman. According to his Linked in Profile, Michael Greenman was a Regional Manager for Dominion Voting Systems until 2018. Not a smoking gun on its own, but it does add to the web of secrecy and confusion surrounding these companies.

Smartmatic Corp located in the UK

Smartmatic has been specifically mentioned by President Trump’s personal attorney and former mayor of New York, Rudy Guliani. Smartmatic was formed by three engineers while working in Caracas, Venezuela- Antonio Mugica, Alfredo José Anzola, and Roger Piñate. The company officially incorporated in Delaware in April of 2011 with its headquarters located in Boca Raton, FL.

In 2004, Smartmatic acquired Sequoia Voting Systems from De La Rue, a British printing company that prints banknotes and tax stamps, among other things. However, Sequoia was sold in 2010 to Dominion Voting Systems. Sequoia Voting Systems has had its own share of controversies including an investigation by Dan Rather for “deliberately supplying poor-quality punch-card ballots to Palm County Beach, Florida for the 2000 election” that resulted in a hanging chad.

In 2014, the CEO of Smartmatic Antonio Mugica and Lord Mark Malloch-Brown announced a partnership and the formation of SGO Corporation Limited. SGO claims to be “an investor group that finds and funds innovative companies that demonstrate long-term promise in areas that enhance lives.” They list four main categories on their website that they focus on- democracy and citizen participation, governance, identity and privacy, and climate and clean air. Lord Mallach-Brown also has ties to George Soros. Mallach-Brown is the Vice-chairman of George Soros’s Investment Funds, as well as his Open Society Institute, and a Vice‐President at the World Bank.

In addition, Smartmatic has denied any ties to Dominion Voting Systems, but in a 2015 interview about Smartmatic’s role in the Philippines elections, Malloch-Brown admits to a licensing agreement with Dominion.

Foreign Influence in America’s Elections

Although the 2020 election is hotly contested, this is not the first time the concern of foreign influence in our elections has been in question. Most recently, the Democrats claimed that Russia was involved in the 2016 election and tried for three years to connect President Trump to Russian collusion. Questions regarding the safety of our electronic voting machines, ties to Venezuela, and more have been in question long before this election. The more important question here is- why was nothing done about these concerns? After millions of taxpayer dollars were spent on investigations and 24/7 coverage by the mainstream media on the Russian collusion allegations, one would assume that the security and integrity of our elections would be a high priority, no matter who was on the ballot.

As we established above, all of these voting systems in question have ties to foreign countries. Syctl is a Spain owned company, Smartmatic has ties to Venezuela and the UK, and Dominion is a Canadian based company. Moreover, there are recent concerns that our election tabulation is being completed on and stored in a server overseas. While these claims are not yet verified, it is cause for investigation and concern.

As we reported recently, Scorecard is a CIA developed software that changes the tabulation of voting in the data transfer stage of electronic tabulation reporting. The “glitches” that were seen during vote tabulation updates on live television Election Night could have been this software, or other software manipulation, in real-time.

Sidney Powell, attorney to General Flynn and part of President Trump’s legal team, said recently on Lou Dobb’s that they have a sworn affidavit from a “high ranking military official” that has first-hand knowledge of Smartmatic. He says he was present when Smartmatic was designed “in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected.” He also alleges that “Smartmatic agreed to create such a system and produced the software and hardware that accomplished the result for President Chavez.”

CEO Mugica of Smartmatic is on record confirming manipulation by Venezuela using their machines in 2017. Mugica goes on to say that there must be “people auditing the system and watching for that evidence.” He states that during this election with confirmed manipulation there “were no auditors from the opposition party… it is important to point out that this would not have occurred if the auditors of all political parties had been present.”

This sounds much like what we are hearing today in the 2020 US Elections. Observers from the Republican party were forced out and ballots were tabulated in secret. It should be of concern to everyone that not only are we using the same software and hardware but we are also witnessing the same troubling behavior right here in this country.

Election Integrity and National Security

Given all that we know with these voting systems and software, it is more important now than ever to take a hard look at our election integrity. Technology has made it more possible to breach security than ever before. Software with “backdoors” designed to allow voter tabulation manipulation is just the tip of the iceberg. Our national security is also at risk.

In 2014, the CIA made a sweetheart deal with Amazon to use commercial cloud computing for its operations. Ironically, the deal was first outlined by former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper. Clapper was also named by whistleblower Dennis Montgomery in the whistleblower tapes that outlined 47 hard drives of information on the commandeering of the Hammer software. Hammer and Scorecard are used together to manipulate votes.

The CIA using commercial cloud computing through Amazon Web Services is a “radical departure” from its normal mode of operation. What is even more troubling is that the AWS pod networking uses parts built in other countries, namely China. In 2016 Bloomberg Business reported that Amazon “quietly began [an] evaluation a start-up company called Elemental Technologies… that fit nicely with Amazon’s government businesses, such as the highly secure cloud that Amazon Web Services (AWS) was building for the CIA.”

However, it was discovered that there was a tiny microchip, no bigger than a grain of rice nestled on the motherboard of the new technology. Bloomberg reported that “Elemental’s servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA’s drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships.” It was also reported that “investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered machines.” These hardware hacks were inserted in factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.

These hardware attacks are about access. As reported, “The implant was placed on the board in a way that allowed it to effectively edit this information queue, injecting its own code or altering the order of the instructions the CPU was meant to follow.” What could this mean for our National Security? With technology now at the forefront of our most secret operations, is it worth asking the questions about being compromised?

More importantly, our intelligence agencies have been aware of all of these facts. They have been made aware of the security concerns regarding our elections. Why has it been allowed to progress to the point that confidence in our technology is no longer warranted? Moreover, why are journalists not asking these questions?

  1. Just recently stumbled upon NRN and can’t say enough about how impressed I am with your articles Rose. Rock solid and always hitting on the questions I tend to have, but more often than not are woefully lacking among the large majority of writings I read.
    Thanks for the great work Rose. I’m fast becoming, a big fan.

  2. Please read this:
    Electing federal or national congressmen or congresswomen, the Senate and House of Representatives, is different and distinctive from electing the President and Vice President.
    Everything was normal and customary up until the 2020. In 1992 Oregon sent it’s first mail-in-ballots out to the public. A total of 6% of the ballots cast were by mail-in-votes. Mail-in-voting should have been declared ‘unconstitutional’ way back then since the Oregonians were voting for President and VP. Each State didn’t have absolute authority over for voting the President and VP. But, no problem. Going forward’s over 68% voting in 2020 by some sort of mail-in-ballots. Basically, it’s because of COVID-19.
    The U.S. Constitution was essentially set up for States to control and dominate. They did a pretty good job in elections up until 2020 but everyone and everything has hiccups.
    The Constitution proclaims, Article I, Section 4: Election, it states the following: The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the place of chusing Senators.
    Next, there was so much confusion and strife from 1792 – 1845 in the election of a President and Vice-President that the Congress passed a law as prescribed in Article I, Section 4. It states as follows:

    OF THE
    Passed at the second session, which was begun and held at the city of Washington, in the district of Columbia, on Monday, the 2d day of December, 1844, and ended the 3d day of March, 1845.
    JOHN TYLER, President of the United States. Willie P. Magnum, President of the Senate, pro tempore. John W. Jones, Speaker of the House.

    Chap. 1. – An act to establish a uniform time for holding elections for electors of President and Vice President in all the States of the Union. (a)
    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assemble, That the electors of President and Vice President shall be appointed in each State on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in the month of November of the year in which they are appointed: Provided, That each State may by law provide for the filling of any vacancy or vacancies which may occur in it’s college of electors when such college meets to give its electoral vote: And provided, also, when any State shall have held an election for the purpose of choosing electors, and shall fail to make a choice on the day aforesaid, then the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such manner as the State shall by law provide.
    APPROVED, January 23, 1845.

    In my logic, every vote cast by the end of Election Day (when polls close for your particular neighborhood voting location) is it ..period ..end of sentence. Any votes after are null and void in electing the President and VP. The Congress fixed, preset, preordained and programmed Election Day for the President and VP in 1845! What the States failed to realize there is an altered process in electing the two different factions ..Senate and House of Representatives versus President and Vice-President. The States have been dominant for 175 years up until this point. The States can do anything they want as far as their own legislative codicils on elections. When it comes to electing the President and Vice- President on Election Day is fixed and unchanging in all 50 States under this federal act ..the first Tuesday of November every four years.
    If Congress was aware of this Act/Law they would of done something about it before the Presidential Election. But ‘NO’, they were still trying to ‘hang’ the President of the United States.
    No law has passed since 1845 by Congress to nullify, invalidate, modify or reverse this ruling to my knowledge. An act, by meaning, is a ‘specific’ purpose which makes reference to the statutes created by the Congressional legislator, that concentrates on a particular subject or issue ..the election of the President and VP. If Congress was so concerned about the COVID issue they would have passed a temporary law stating that the elections of the electors be modified for the President and VP. Regulate the law to be a nationwide act to affect all the States, not a State by State issue as far as election of the President and VP.
    The Act instructs and makes it mandatory the President and VP be determined the first Tuesday of November by declaring in Article I , Section 4, ‘the electors of President and Vice President shall be appointed in each State ‘
    This act stipulates nothing about natural acts of God (hurricanes, tornadoes and such). The law states nothing about pandemics. The decree stipulates if the electors are not elected on the first Tuesday of November, the State may possibly or conceivably choose another day as long as it abides by the constitution and/or state law. It has nothing to do with morals or meanings. It has nothing to do with a State or Federal Election Committee since they didn’t have them way back in 1845. It has nothing to do with the State Supreme Court, the State Attorney General or the Secretary of State. For the reason that the Act describes in the last sentence ‘a subsequent day in such manner as the State shall by law provide’. This last sentence implies and is contingent upon the State legislative body acting upon the issue. Period.
    This law is not racist, xenophobic, chauvinistic, prejudiced, bigoted and/or biased. The act all revolves around and is circumscribed by government, politics, legislation and the body of law.
    The majority of states now permit voters to cast ballots before Election Day, either in person at designated early voting sites, or via a ballot that has been mailed to the voter’s residence. In all states, to varying degrees, voting now takes place not just on one day during a certain time period, but over a series of days and weeks before the election, as well. This assertion isn’t in the U.S. Constitution. If States wanted this comfortable and convenient fashion it would be in the U.S. Constitution or an Act or Law to supplement the statute as stipulated in Article I, Section 4.
    A ballot that has been sent to a voter and is voted outside of a polling place or election official’s office has traditionally been referred to as an “absentee ballot” and the person who votes that ballot has been called an “absentee voter.” This terminology is common in state law and comes from the concept and perception that voters would use this option only when they were “absent” from their community polling place on Election Day. As time has gone on and more and more voters request a ballot in advance as their absence voting method, and as states have begun offering more prospects for voters to do so, the terminology has evolved. But voting for State issues has overlapped into voting for Presidential elections. That is erroneous and unconstitutional. It’s has developed through some falsehood to become a permissible and convenient way to vote for President an VP. We’re voting for the President of the United States! Personally, I would take a little part of my day, no matter how inopportune it was, and go and vote for the person which follows my ideology. Some states refer to it as “advance ballots,” “mailed ballots,” “by-mail ballots,” “mail ballots” or “vote-by-mail ballots.” Mail-in-ballots is not in the U.S. Constitution and is a counterfeit method utilized for pretense plus deception. The idiom, mail-in-ballots, is not in the U.S. Constitution for electing the President and VP, and therefore, is unconstitutional.
    Benjamin Franklin was the first Postmaster General of the Post Office Department in 1775. He had that position in federal government for 15 years! In essence, that is the way we communicated, conversed by letter and pen and/or conveyed messages by the U.S. Mail. In drafting this Act one would assume the framers would want to include mail-in-voting since it had a benefit, an advantage and more prospects in procuring more registered voters to comply with voting. If the framers had so much confidence, assuredness and trust in the U.S. Mail, why wouldn’t they include mail-in-voting in the Constitution or incorporate mail-in-voting in U.S. Congressional body of laws? But ‘NO’, the framers had foresight and realized the safest, most secure and affirmative method of voting was travelling to community voting location.
    States have taken the section on ‘electing’ a federal official and misconstrued it into anything the states would want. The States surmised they had full reign on electing officials since it is, once again, what the Constitution is based on – the States. But there’s certain duties and functions which are set out ‘for and by’ the Congressional representatives and the people to observe. One of them being the election of the President and it has strict rules to comply with. ‘Every vote counts’ in an election is commendable. But it’s unto an order arranged by the U.S. Constitution. Election of a President is up to every American citizen and it’s stated, accordingly, in the Constitution. Election of House of Representative or Senate seat is up to each States to determine.

    Dear Sirs

    Your news service is a welcome break from the Biden Whitewash of the official media not least here in UK where both public opinion and media are not noting the growing backlash against the stolen election and what an enormous threat Biden’s presidency poses to the whole world. The Left Establishment will force the illegitimate Biden upon an unbelieving and sceptical America. The Republicans and all Americans who voted Trump should ostracise and ignore a false, fake president in name only and stay away from his illegitimate “inauguration” and this should be extended across the board without exception. Trump should at best not attend the ceremony as should all true Republicans and if forced to attend, should ignore and ostracise Biden, even more so his odious sidekick Harris, at all times.
    Do to Biden over the whole 4 years what the thugs on the Left did to Trump during his term and then, once mote evidence of vote fraud piles up, impeach and remove him from an office he has no right to. Give the Left a dose of their own vicious medicine and see Biden/Harris choke on it. The same delegitimisation should be extended to every member of his so-called “cabinet” of Tech and Left yes men. Pelosi is the third person on the Republican blacklist and every policy proposed by a false government should be blocked, scuppered or delayed with all possible force and vituperation.
    Biden is not “legitimate “ but President in Name Only ( PINO)!!!
