Progressive Cabal Holds Freakout Session To Plan Attacks Against Steve Bannon

Published

This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The American Spectator:

A cabal of progressive operatives met Sunday night in New York City for a public strategy session that was promoted by the hashtag #DeleteAltRight.

New York State Senator Brad Hoylman hosted the conspiratorial gathering at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea, using the tagline “What You Need To Know About the Alt-Right and White Nationalism.” The event was convened to promote a new film called “Hate in America” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. But the whole thing was about how to target White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Breitbart, the news site he chaired before moving to the Donald Trump campaign.

Matthew Tyrmand, an advisory board member at my organization the America First Project, provided me with photos and audio from inside the gathering. Tyrmand is a Bannon supporter, a Breitbart contributor, and an avowed enemy of anti-Semitism in all of its forms.

New York City public advocate Tish James was introduced as someone who will “lead the resistance to Donald Trump.” New York is a so-called sanctuary city for illegal immigrants, with mayor Bill de Blasio vowing to defy Trump’s immigration orders.

James said that the ”prejudice and xenophobia” of Trump’s campaign goes all the way to the top. ”That ignorance and hate is reverberating across the country.”

One of the panelists made clear that Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist, will be targeted above anyone else by the forces of the progressive Left.

As a Breitbart News 2016 campaign reporter who worked under Bannon, I can say with the utmost certainty that the man is no racist. But that’s not stopping the establishment forces on both sides of the aisle from trying to smear him by any means necessary.

An attendee questioner at the event said that Bannon and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are “doing things that absolutely mirror the early stage of the Third Reich.”

Southern Poverty Law Center official Heidi Beirich went into a cartoonishly hysterical diatribe against Bannon, a successful former Wall Street banker and naval officer.

“I would say Steve Bannon is probably the worst offender right now in the administration,” Beirich said. “The thing about Bannon is this: he intentionally stated that he wanted to create the website that he was running…as a platform for the Alt-Right. Those are his words. That’s what he wanted out of Breitbart dot com… he’s sanctifying white nationalism.”

“You’ll find headlines like ‘trannies,’ there’s actually a whole section on the site about black on white crime…it’s actually the thing that got Dylan Roof to commit the shooting in Charleston South Carolina….so when a top adviser to the president says I want to provide a platform for these kinds of ideas it’s scary.”

“I can go on and on and on about these headlines on Breitbart,” Beirich said, calling them “exactly the ideas this country has been trying to get rid of and supersede.”

“He’s absolutely not bashful about it. And he doesn’t seem to care,” Beirich said of Bannon.

“Even in their parents’ basement, behind their computer though, they feel like they have a massive” support system, another official panelist said, referring to so-called “un-affiliated” extremists.

This is the comic-strip fantasyland of hateful, paranoid delusion inhabited by the modern Left. Only a combination of classist isolation, willful dishonesty, and severe mental problems could convince these so-called intellectuals that any of this nonsense is actually happening. But the Left, chastened by their historic loss, want Bannon’s head at all costs.

Republicans need to rally behind Bannon as he plays a key role in the most productive opening period for any modern president. Will supporters of Paul Ryan come to Bannon’s defense, or just let the progressives go at him?

MIT Warns That Voting App Used in Several States is Vulnerable for Hackers to ‘Alter, Stop or Expose’ Votes

The app used in several states can be exploited, according to researchers.

Published

on

An internet-based voting app that has been used on a limited basis in West Virginia, Denver, Oregon and Utah is vulnerable to hackers, according to Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers.

The research indicates that Voatz, an app that has been mostly used for absentee voters and miitary personnel voting overseas, can be exploited to “alter, stop or expose how an individual has voted.”

Election security experts have long warned that internet-based voting is prone for hacking, but that hasn’t stopped states from attempting it.

“We all have an interest in increasing access to the ballot, but in order to maintain trust in our elections system, we must assure that voting systems meet the high technical and operation security standards before they are put in the field,” said Daniel Weitzner, an MIT scientist who helped to prepare the report, on Thursday.

Donald Kersey, a general counsel in the secretary of state’s office in West Virginia, explained that the state has to use electronic voting due to a new law that allows disabled people to vote online. He claims his state hasn’t committed to using the Voatz app.

“Obviously, integrity and security are prime, but voter confidence is equally important,” Kersey said.

Voatz disputes the MIT study, claiming that it was conducted in “bad faith,” and used an older, outdated form of their app that has since been improved. Nevertheless, the experts are crowing that this study backs what they have been saying about the dangers of electronic voting for many years.

“Not to in any way diminish this (excellent) work, but the fact that an online mobile voting scheme has serious security flaws is ultimately unsurprising,” tweeted Matt Blaze, a Georgetown University professor of computer science and law. “Every serious expert has warned against Internet voting.”

“In my view, based on MIT’s findings, no responsible jurisdiction should use Voatz in real elections any time soon,” wrote J. Alex Halderman, a University of Michigan professor. “It will take major advances in security technology before Internet voting is safe enough.”

This news comes after the Shadow voting app helped contribute to the turmoil that happened at the Iowa caucus last week:

The voting app, designed by Shadow Inc., that is responsible for tallying votes during the Iowa caucus has major establishment ties, particularly to South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has already declared himself the winner of the Iowa caucus despite the fact that no results have been released at this point.

Shadow is a tech project of ACRONYM. Free speech platform Gab noted that ACRONYM founder and CEO Tara McGowan is a huge Buttigieg supporter, as evidenced by her social media posts…

In addition, the leaders of Shadow all have extensive ties to the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, according to their own social media profiles.

Shadow CEO Gerard Niemera lists himself as the former Director of Product for Hillary for America and Senior Product Manager during his 14 months of service to Clinton during her campaign. Shadow Product Manager Ahna Rao lists herself as a Clinton campaign worker for 19 months as Special Assistant to the Chief Technology Officer, and Shadow Chief Operating Officer James Hickey listed himself as Engineering Manager of Hillary for America for 18 months.

Technology is opening up new avenues for voter fraud that could conceivably have an impact on this year’s general election.
