Whistle-Blower Edward Snowden Warns About How Easily Digital Voting Machines Can Be Hacked

Snowden, a technology expert, believes that paper ballots are the answer.

Whistle-blower Edward Snowden, who exposed the NSA’s illicit spying operation to the world in 2013, is now sounding the alarm about the hackability of digital voting machines.

Other experts have echoed Snowden’s concerns about digital voting machines as well, as there are many vulnerabilities in the nascent technology that can be exploited by various nefarious interests.

“The most vulnerable part of election infrastructure is the websites,” said Jake Braun, a former White House liaison on cybersecurity who set up an experiment showing that children could hack various state election pages with ease.

“It took an 11-year-old girl 10 minutes to do it, and she was the first one,” Braun added.

Braun also feels Snowden’s concerns about the digital voting machines are valid, particularly because much of the technology is engineered in countries with hostile foreign governments.

“The No 1 thing we found last year wasn’t a hack at all, it was the fact that we opened up the back of the machine, and of course, no surprise, all the parts are made across the world, especially China,” Braun said.

“This isn’t conjecture, this isn’t my dystopian fantasy world, this is something we know they do,” he added.

The potential for fraud is greater than ever, as more precincts become dependent on these machines to handle their voting operations on election day.

“Vulnerabilities on voting systems sometimes go unpatched for a long period of time and that’s the window of opportunity for an attacker to act and compromise them,” said Mounir Hahad, who leads the Juniper Threat Labs at Juniper Networks, to Fox News.

“If the goal is to delegitimize an election, a cyber threat actor can do this in four ways: change cast ballots, insert fake votes, eliminate legitimate votes or alter the tally of votes. If the goal is to just sow discord and confusion, they can also alter the systems used to report results, such as the secretary of state election results websites,” he added.

“Cybercriminals have already targeted the midterm elections successfully months and even years ago by causing disruption at the core of the United States of America,” said Joseph Carson, who works as chief security scientist at Thycotic.

“Creating a divide in the population and the continuous flow of propaganda into the U.S. citizens to make Americans fear their neighbors is right at the core of hacking of the elections. Rather than change the results of the voting systems, you control the mind of the voter,” Carson added.

There is only one way to assuredly prevent these potential problems with digital voting machines, and that is to use paper ballots. Snowden, who is currently being provided asylum by Russian President Vladimir Putin, is once again telling the truth to the public.

National Center For Sexual Exploitation: Snapchat and Teen Vogue are Telling Kids to Make Child Porn!

Big Tech and the fake news media are encouraging child exploitation.

Published

on

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCSE) is putting the spotlight on Snapchat and Teen Vogue for allegedly encouraging children to make pornography during the coronavirus pandemic.

The center implored Snapchat and Teen Vogue to refrain from encouraging teens “to create child sexual abuse material (child pornography) by sexting during quarantine.” They are telling Snapchat to stop featuring content from Teen Vogue, a publication that has promoted anal sex and totalitarian communism to children in the past.

“Snapchat and Teen Vogue are playing right into sexual predators’ hands,” said NCSE executive director Dawn Hawkins.

“With the likely surge of young viewers on Snapchat due to quarantine, it is socially irresponsible for Snapchat Discover to encourage minors to self-produce underage pornography (i.e. child sexual abuse materials), thereby increasing their vulnerability to sexual predators,” she added.

The NCSE believes that instructing children to create and distribute sexually-obscene materials is wrong in every instance.

“Online predators use social media platforms to pose as peers and groom children to send them sexually explicit material (i.e. ‘sext’ with them) that they can then distribute and/or use to blackmail the child into other forms of sexual exploitation,” the NCSE said.

“What Teen Vogue is doing by promoting sexing to teens is insidious and harmful,” Hawkins said to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Some of the objectionable content that Teen Vogue has published for kids includes, “How To Sext: The Best Tips & Tricks,” “Here Are 7 Things You Might Not Have Known About Sexting,” and “Sexting Should Make You Feel Good.” They have consistently promoted sexting to children throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

“Given what we know about the brain development of adolescents, it is clear that discussing ‘the importance of consent’ while promoting sexting for minors does not protect those minors from the dangers of sexting — even coerced sexting. The law generally does not recognize minors’ ability to consent,” Hawkins said.

Hawkins made it clear that any sexting involving children is always unacceptable, even when it is two kids sharing pornographic pictures of each other without any adults involved. She noted that sexting can often “further bullying and sextortion among peers.”

“Images are also used as revenge pornography when the relationship sours,” she added. “Pimps/traffickers often use the images to coerce teens into commercial sex trade; and self-produced youth pornography is often shared with third parties, and sometimes finds its way into the collections of predators and their child sexual abuse material.”

This is not the first time that a major social media provider has deliberately enabled child sexual abuse. Coronavirus has just given the Silicon Valley perverts, with an assist from the amoral fake news media, another prime opportunity to corrupt the souls of the youth.
