The mainstream media, predictably, has taken the focus off of Sanders following his narrow victory in New Hampshire to focus on the relative position of the candidates that came in second, third, and fourth. This takes the spotlight off of the election rigging that happened in the granite state exactly where and how The Mockingbird predicted it would happen on Monday February 10th in this article where we examined the obvious and long standing security flaws in tabulation equipment.

New Hampshire is a piece of America that is idolized but rarely examined. The popular image of small towns, direct democracy, strong traditions of in person public life and the very concept of a town hall meeting are neatly filed in the American public consciousness under the words “New Hampshire” and “Vermont”. New Hampshire, which in recent statistics votes 53% Republican in General Elections, is the first direct vote primary in this election season and a traditional momentum builder for any presidential contender.
Buttigieg Complaints Force Iowa Recount as Sanders Surges Despite Widespread Proof of Tampering in Buttigieg's Favor
No American election tampering would be complete without racism. It appears that in one of the whitest states in the union, non-white votes for a candidate outside the establishment were counted last, and when those votes proved to be decisive to the outcome of the contest, the vote counting was stopped and taken even further into the backroom
Democratic National Committee to Take Control and Repair Iowa Caucus Vote Count as the role of the Intelligence Community Comes to Light
Hoping to bury the scandal of outright election fraud the Iowa Democratic Party waited until the country was settling in for Trump's yearly state of his campaign address to Congress and the mandatory publicity stunts that accompany such theater to announce some of the results of their failed caucus. 40% of precincts had reported by 5pm eastern time yesterday, February 5th. Two hours later it was 60%. As of the time of this writing 20 hours later the Guardian UK is showing a barely interactive map with 70.82% of precincts reporting.
There is a certain joy in a newsroom when an accurate prediction of the future comes to pass. Two days ago the Mockingbird published an examination of secret untested cellphone app that would be used to tally yesterday's Iowa caucus vote.
The Des Moines Register is THE newspaper of Iowa. Because Iowa is the first to vote in the primary season, polls and endorsements from this paper have been seen as the most important. Iowa wins build momentum. This year, there has been no final poll. The poll was pulled at the last minute, for secret and conflicting reasons and not shown to the public. This is the first time this has happened. For 19 presidential elections the poll has been a predictor and a driver of votes and momentum. How and why was this historic action taken? Who did it? What is their interest?
In 2016 the Iowa caucus was decided by a coin toss for Hillary Clinton. More correctly seven coin tosses of which Clinton won six. Perhaps Clinton used up all of her luck in those moments as successive coin tosses won by one party six times in a row happens 1 in 64 times. The votes in face to face meetings are re-tabulated at the state level and delegates are awarded by some method that is so far from transparent that in 2016 J.
Beltway inside press is already adjusting to a post-midterm, post-Sessions and possibly Ginsburg reality on this November Thursday and the next couple of press cycles will likely either zero in on the wrong angles of a nation full of election fraud and voter suppression stories. Already Democrat House leadership is using the words bi-partisan and cooperate in sentences that also contain the word President. Arizona's soon to be official senate seat swindle will not be blamed on the half-million people illegally purged from the voting rolls or the post elections tricks that follow.
The one Russian spy they caught did not trade sex for access to a gun club. She did go to see washed up bands
The complicated web of supposed Russian interference in the election continues to be unraveled, found to be incomprehensible and then rewoven into a tapestry that amounts to a blanket of money laundering. Maria Butina is the only actual Russia national actually arrested in connection with the election. She is a accused not of actually violating the integrity of the election process, but of being an unregistered foreign agent. She is not accused of espionage nor under any national security clause, or even unregistered lobbying. She is being held without bail in Virginia.
Since a 6th grade child can hack a voting machine in under an hour, why are we still talking about Russia?
Voting machines are not secure. This author has been reporting that simple fact for nearly 6 years. The security on voter registration systems or more correctly the vulnerability thereof, has also been the topic of multiple articles over the years. I once speculated to an ex-girlfriend that I could teach her 10 year old how to crack a voting machine in under one hour. Said 10 year old mastered the method of breaking a single alphabetic substitution cipher in under an hour and wandered off bored. The kid in question had no particular talent and very little interest.
