Fire With Fire
For decades after November 22, 1963, people would ask, “Do you remember where you were when the President was shot?”

Based on the thunderous reaction this week, I know that for ages to come people will ask, “Where were you when you heard that somebody said that Warren said that Sanders said that a woman could not beat Trump.”

America will never be the same after this crisis.

Despite Election Security Fears, Iowa Caucuses Will Use New Smartphone App


 

Quote:

Iowa's Democratic Party plans to use a new Internet-connected smartphone app to help calculate and transmit results during the state's caucuses next month, Iowa Public Radio and NPR have confirmed.

Party leaders say they decided to opt for that strategy fully aware of three years' worth of warnings about Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential election, in which cyberattacks played a central role.

Iowa's complicated caucus process is set to take place Feb. 3 in gymnasiums, churches, recreation centers and other meeting places across the state.

As opposed to a primary in which voters cast ballots in the same way they would for a general election, Iowa's caucuses are social affairs; caucusgoers gather in person and pledge their support for a candidate by physically "standing in their corner" in designated parts of a room.

Iowa's Democrats hope the new app lets the party get results out to the public quicker, says Troy Price, the chairman of the state party.

In an interview, Price declined to provide more details about which company or companies designed the app, or about what specific measures have been put in place to guarantee the system's security.




As Alex says in A Clockwork Orange, "Welly welly well well well."  We live in a political culture that is obsessing about words again.  Sanders either did or did not say something and Warren either did or did not lie about it.  Ah, but the story has "legs" and there is an even more significant twist --  Either Warren did or did not "ambush" Sanders.

Today Trump's impeachment went to the Senate without anything in it about war or deeds -- it is also about words that never quite made it into a deed.

Folks.  We do not have secure vote counting.  I posted a few weeks ago to the link from the Des Moines Register four years ago questioning the validity of the results of Hillary's "victory" then.  I got this link from DU.  It got five responses and one like.  I believe there must be 50 threads about ChicksCan'tWinGate.

You know who can't win?  Whoever does not control that fucking Nomination Stealing App, that's who.

Got this pic from DU Lite.  

I guess this means that the crisis is passed, and the earth manages to continue to spin on its axis.   

Ten more days to go in January after today.  After World War III, #Chickscan'twinGate -- what will shake the earth next?  Oh, I remember, impeachment!  I got an email from Move On Dot Org this morning featuring the wit and wisdom of Rachel Maddow.  Some things are too grotesque for my ambition for satire and did not read it.

But the title line did include the word, "Bombshell."   Some things never change.

Maybe there is a bigger picture we can all learn from, despite all of our differences, on a day such as today when a man stood out and preached love, non-violence and peace towards all.

It is still not clear what this bullshit story will say when the “results” finally appear. But you can see from the linked article that this clusterfuck was predictable and predicted.

Election insecurity has been obvious for two decades, and the threat of “Russian” hacking is a Democratic Party talking point. Yet this beyond absurd “app” was put into service just two weeks before the caucuses.

No amount of lipstick is going to make this pig look pretty.

Banana Republic!

Actually this might turn out to be a good thing.  When the app did not work, they had to improvise by taking photos of the written results.  So now they have photo proof of the validity of the paper trail.  And what is taking time is matching the photos with the paper documents.  Without that app, it will take much longer to hand count and verify. 

And hand counts are what election advocates have wanted for years.  In the end the result could be far more verifiable than in the past.

Someone said that winning the Iowa election is all about winning media attention.  Romney was declared the winner in a recent election by eight votes.  Two weeks later it was confirmed that he actually lost.  But it didn't matter.  He won the media attention.  So it is a good thing that this is taking some time to sort out if winning media attention is what it is all about.
Ye shall know the phony left by the gates they keep.
