Election fraud: beware of early network projections next Tuesday

Election fraud: beware of early network projections next Tuesday

by Jon Rappoport

November 2, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

Bev Harris’ revelations about election fraud are exploding across the Web. At blackboxvoting.org, she has exposed GEMS, a vote-tabulating system used in 25% of the US vote. Intentional back doors are installed in GEMS, allowing manipulation on a massive scale.

But keep in mind that major news networks always make their projections of the winners on election night. This is another vector for gross fraud. The projections are estimates. But once they are announced, the game is over in most cases. In other words, declaring the winner is a media event, owned and operated by the networks. (See also here and here)

How are these projections put together?

Here is a compilation, slightly revised, of the most-read articles I’ve ever written. They were about the California vote on Prop 37, which tried and failed to mandate GMO labeling on food. The articles explain a great deal about early projections:

November 8, 2012: “Did Prop 37 Really Lose Or Was It Vote Fraud?”

Hold your horses.

On election night, not long after the polls closed in California, the media announcement came: Prop 37 was losing. A little while later, it was all over. Projection: 37 had gone down to defeat.

But is that the whole story? No.

As of 2:30PM today, Thursday, November 8th, two days after the election, many votes in California remain uncounted.

I tried to find out how many.

It turns out that the Secretary of State of CA, responsible for elections in the state, doesn’t know.

I was told all counties in California have been asked, not ordered, to report in with those figures. It’s voluntary.

So I picked out a few of the biggest counties and called their voter registrar offices. Here are the boggling results:

* Santa Clara County: 180,000 votes remain uncounted.

* Orange County: 241,336 votes remain uncounted.

* San Diego County: 475,000 votes remain uncounted.

* LA County: 782,658 votes remain uncounted.

In just those four counties, 1.6 million votes remain uncounted.

The California Secretary of State’s website indicates that Prop 37 is behind by 559,776 votes.

So in the four counties I looked into, there are roughly three times as many uncounted votes as the margin of Prop 37’s defeat.

And as I say, I checked the numbers in only four counties. There are 54 other counties in the state. Who knows how many votes they still need to process?

So why is anyone saying Prop 37 lost?

People will respond, “Well, it’s all about projections. There are experts. They know what they’re doing. They made a prediction…”

Really? Who are those experts?

For big elections, the television networks often rely on a consortium called the National Election Pool (NEP). NEP does projections and predictions. Did NEP make the premature call on Prop 37?

NEP makes some calls for the television networks, but NEP is composed of CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC, ABC, and AP. It could hardly be called an independent source of information for those networks.

NEP has AP (Associated Press) do the actual vote tabulating, and NEP also contracts work out to Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International to do exit polls and projections based on those polls.

Edison Media Research did the exit polls in the state of Washington for this Election Day. How? They surveyed 1493 people by phone. Based on that, I assume they made all the projections for elections in that state, even though there is no in-person voting in Washington, and voters can submit their ballots by mail, postmarked no later than Election Tuesday. So how could Edison know anything worth knowing or projecting about mail-in ballots on election night?

Both Edison Research and Mitofsky were involved in the 2004 election scandal (Kerry-Bush), in which their exit polls confounded network news anchors, because the poll results were so far off from the incoming vote-counts. Edison/Mitofsky are favorite go-to people at CNN.

So if NEP did the premature Prop 37 projections that handed Prop 37 a resounding loss, there is little reason to accept their word.

We’re faced with a scandal here. An early unwarranted projection against Prop 37 was made, when so many votes were still uncounted.

Those votes are still uncounted.

Why should we believe anything that comes next?

Then, a month later, on December 10, 2012, I wrote this:

Food Democracy Now is weighing in on Prop 37 vote fraud, having discovered that the California Secretary of State, in charge of all elections in CA, has stopped posting updates on the ongoing vote count.

From November 6 all the way to up to December 4, these updates were posted daily on the Secretary of State’s website. Then…blackout. No more updates.

Maybe it has something to do with this: On December 4, YES ON 37 votes climbed over the six-million mark: 6,004,628. Food Democracy Now reported it. Then, suddenly, the YES ON 37 votes reversed!

That’s right. They went back to the previously reported number: 5,986,652.

This is apparently a new wrinkle in vote counting. You can not only add votes, you can go backwards. You can lose 18,000 votes with the flick of a wrist or the blink of a digital operation.

Now you see 18,000 Yes votes, now you don’t.

The latest Food Democracy Now article on vote fraud mentions a team of independent statisticians, who have found “statistical anomalies” in the largest voting precincts of nine CA counties, including LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Alameda, and Orange.

Also worth noting: I previously wrote about the Secretary of State’s “top-to-bottom” review (2007) of all electronic voting systems then in use in CA. This review discovered fatal flaws in all four systems…but then three of those systems were re-approved for use, after being disqualified. I see no clear evidence that the flaws were fixed.

The top-down review mentioned that Alameda County (one of the counties the team of statisticians is now studying for fraud) had purchased voting machines that turned out to be counterfeits. They had been advertised as legitimate, but they weren’t.

I’m told the Yes on 37 campaign is alert to Food Democracy Now’s charges of fraud, and they are considering a petition for a recount. We’ll see.

Of course, no recount will expose electronic fraud unless very talented experts can examine the full range of electronic systems now in use in CA.

—end of December 2012 article—

Finally, late in 2012, I wrote this:

I tracked the early media projection against Prop 37, on election night, to its most probable source, the Associated Press (AP).

AP, the giant wire service, is officially a non-profit owned by 1400 member newspapers, who use its services and also contribute articles. So AP is major media personified. Again, hardly a trusted source.

And as everyone knows, the newspaper business in America is dying. Its bottom line is sitting in a lake of red ink, and the lake is sitting in an ocean of red ink.

That means these newspapers, and the corporations who own them, have been re-financing their very existence with loans, and loans to pay off earlier loans. That means banks.

Now you’re getting into the oligarchy that owns this country, and what that oligarchy wants; what they want to win, and who they want to win…

—end of Prop 37 articles—

power outside the matrix

Back to the present, 2016. You see how this works. Media organizations are relying on other media organizations, to which they’re intimately connected, to make the early projections on election night. It’s all a shell game, created to give the impression that “independent organizations” are “objectively” analyzing the early vote returns and coming up with “scientific projections.”


One media hand is washing the other media hand, and both hands belong to the same body.

Don’t accept projections.

    Thank you very much for your timely and concise article on voting fraud. I really appreciate a clear, neutral voice in the sea of ‘non-biased’ media that so many accept so readily without a second thought!

  2. Joy says:

    My head is spinning at the moment, Jon. I was very active in the Prop 37 movement and living in Alameda County at the time of its “surprising” defeat. All we could ask was, “How could it all have gone so wrong when there were so many people fighting for this one?” That was the beginning of the end for me when it comes to trusting anything about the U.S. and state electoral systems. You have just filled in the blanks for me. I’m still sitting on the fence in Colorado about whether or not to vote at all, receiving postcards from the Secretary of State’s office asking me why I am not registered to vote. I wonder?!!

    • Dont give up we are fighting for the very life of the earth here if the food and water is mass tainted then we have every right to revolt against this evil and nefarious rule. GMO’s are creating the massive obesity epidemic that seems to have no known cause

  3. Kurt says:

    Voter fraud casts an arrow though the very heart of a democratic republic. It’s apparent that US citizens have reached the boiling point regarding corruption in government. Beware, indeed.

    • This is a bigger scam and scandal to rival Clinton Bush Obama’s Crimes the mass dosing of human food for life with fake food aka GMO,s wondered why every one is so fat? well GMO fake food inflames the gut an inflamed gut creates obesity the whole body now inflamed and no body can stop it why not…the power of corporations to control all aspects of life its our own fault it couldn’t happen if we didn’t acquiesce. I am a triple yogi master and quality life extension expert and ex sweet tooth addict sick of being sick………it took ages to realise that nothing I bought prepared outside was healthy it was full of GMO product from the wheat to oil to the sweetener. we need to eat organic fresh fruit and vegetable and meat once a year like they used to in Ancient Aegypt when they worshiped Apis the Sacred Bull who they fattened for a year then sacrificed for a feast that we now try to have tree times a day no wonder everyone you see on the bus or in the street is ugly fat and weak…..

    Where are the lawyers and lawsuits re Prop 37 fraud? Are all state agencies and their employees immune?

  5. Exactly, they are not to be trusted.

    What They’re Not Telling You About the Polls

  7. isabellkgabriel says:

    Thanks again Jon for all the work you do to bring so much to light. I followed this one and I’m pretty sure my vote was “lost” in the bucket of 18,000, or maybe even in the uncounted “voluntary” stash that was so easily and largely ignored just as the Texas Director of Elections Keith Ingram is ignoring and has repeatedly ignored questions and requests for answers on WTF is going on? in his community with our voting system.

    I followed prop 37 and witnessed exactly what you are speaking of/writing of above. I even asked people in my community (Napa County, Sonoma County, Lake County, Marin County, and Solano County) where I traveled and worked at the time; people in regular communities, not the “organic” collectives or “conscious” communities as they like to be called, but the “regular” or “normal” people as they are referred to now, who shop at Safeway and “regular” or “normal” supermarkets (these indications are always humorous to me since it seems so arrogant to refer to anyone like this as the “conscious” communities do who are “aware” and “awake”, but these distinctions nevertheless have veracity to them). So, I asked these people what they thought of “organic” or “nonGMO” or whether it’s important to “know” what’s in their food, whether they read the labels or care about genetic engineering of food. I asked them matter of fact without leading anyone anywhere and the consensus was largely in favour of knowing. People actually care what’s in their food even when they buy chips and soda. In fact, most people cared when it had to do with “snack” type foods which I thought was interesting. The reasoning behind this was that they believed “snack” foods were bad for them and wanted to make sure they were as less bad as possible. When buying so called “healthy” foods, most people didn’t look to see where a vegetable or fruit was grown since they assumed veggies and fruits in their “whole” form were just naturally healthy. It was only when they bought “snacky” foods that they actually wanted to know. Of course most reading this will know it matters where and how foods are grown regardless of whether in “whole” form or combined in a package. The genetic engineering of food didn’t seem to register, but the contents of food made cents/sense, and for some reason people tended to focus on organic as the issue with prop 37 rather than GEF. Either way, most people in all communities wanted to know and still want to know what’s in their food and were and still are largely in favour of prop 37. It’s evident corruption engineered the downfall of prop 37. And Shame on Whole Foods (which I now cal WTF! Foods) for recently overturning the disclosure of their GEF labeling on their own food brands!

    So, when I watched the BS come down on CA with all this above, I began the work of completely removing myself from the system (it was the last straw for me). Knowing the system is controlled and that most decisions on my sovereignty have been largely dominated/enslaved in a system, has only encouraged my leaving the system and no longer supporting it in any way shape or form. I was so angry at the system and its corruption that I could no longer be a part of it’s support. No one tells me what to do with my body and my life. I do not consent. My will is “sovereign” to my own self, no longer hi-jacked! The last word on my fakebook account before I closed it was “NO”. People are learning to say this more now I’ve noticed, or maybe I’m just moving through the dimensions where people say this more Now. Who knows, whatever, it all seems as a game in a box’d and packaged system and I’m out, no longer caring what people think about me, typing/writing whatever I think uncensored (well, my pirate mouth is censored; I still have consideration for those who are sensitive to this sort of sordid lingual -ese). I’m just too far along in my education to remain silent or pc couth. No longer hi-jacked, Couthless, and Vocal. I’m going out with a Voice whether or not People Want to Hear it; they Want Truth. They really do Now. I’ve had very little opposition to my Voice these days. Very different from a decade ago. People really are “waking” up and “wanting” Truth now. May the Voice of the People “Count” as “Whole” votes and “Whole” People from this day forWard as in to “guard” and “protect”.

    Ok, soap box is free now..

    • Dont give up……Its not a soap box brother its the living truth gear up let people know their food and water is poisoned…I think the the tap root of this evil is the way corporations have been allowed to rule the world none says boo any more hardly what is needed is a new age hero like Jack and his beanstalk aka Trump to climb up and defeat the Giant Corpse sic, we have to win this battle or all life will vanish.

    Roger Stone And Trump Are Being Sued By The DNC In Five States

  9. Call me dumb, Jon, and I very briefly scan comments so I may have missed the answer “under my nose”, but, given Trump has so much to lose, why hasn’t he tendered a vote of no confidence in the voting process?


  10. Christopher Pearson says:

    Inverse invective speak is a portrait of HRC “Talking Points” showing how most of Hillary’s constituency talks. It’s mind boggling! Totally non sequitur evasive gibberish and innuendo. They are seemingly all apt pupils of Hillary’s School of Public Speaking. Utterly empty mad like inverted crazy talk. This is the Hillary Obama speak – hypocritical doublespeak – libtard speak – retarded speak – useless speak. The truth and any factual discussion are anathema to HRC! Is this the mentally we want to see habituated in the White House? Or for another 4 more years of such psycho-pathological nonsense? It’s said “She is that toxic!” Lying is what a pathological liar does best…. One wonders where her arrogant confidence is coming from when her obvious position is logically null and void – leading to a supposition that the whole election process is in fact rigged for her to “win” based on a fraudulent vote and if she does “win” there could be no other explanation for it.
