We're not dealing with geniuses here

It appears that little post-election update Dominion did on its GA servers might not have been thoroughly tested.

Officials in Fulton County, Georgia, said a Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashed on Sunday, delaying a recount requested by President Trump.

"Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue," Fulton County officials said in a statement reported by WXIA-TV, a local NBC affiliate. "The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem."

Fulton County officials told the outlet that a newly purchased Dominion mobile server crash was to blame. The Washington Examiner reached out to Dominion for comment.

Dominion, a leading voting machine company whose products are used in several states, has been the focus of voter fraud claims by Trump and his allies. Sidney Powell, an attorney from whom the Trump legal team distanced themselves in recent days, has a federal lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud in Georgia, and she claims that state officials, including Gov. Brian Kemp, were bribed to be part of a conspiracy with Dominion to tilt the election in President-elect Joe Biden's favor.

This is devolving into pure comedy now.

UPDATE: It keeps getting better. The server didn't crash. It's been reported missing.

  1. Wasn't Kemp the guy who wiped the election results right after he won, despite federal law requiring the state to keep records for over a year? Having an R next to his name doesn't make him less swampy.

  2. This is either a comedy of errors or an error of comedies, I'm not sure which...

  3. "Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched..."

    Haha, this might be an excellent way to find out where their corporate bosses are hiding out.

    Dominion techs walk into the secure building and ask "OK, so where's our crashed server?"

    "Crashed server? We don't have no crashed server. Please. take a seat..."

    Like a pedophile walking into a Chris Hansen trap

  5. The broken water pipe in Fulton turned out to be an overflowed toilet.

    This will turn out to be someone unplugged the machine.

    Both were just excuses to cover behind the scenes chicanery.

    In this case, they need a Dominion technician to come in and hide the cheating.

  10. Dominion has probably never actually tested the ``no-cheat-you-can-audit-me'' version of its software.

  11. It's devolving _now_?

    If there hadn't been for the Honk Honkler meme I might've been surprised by the comedy involved here.

    The point at which I seriously started considering elections in western countries to be fake and gay was when I learned that Swedish elections required each party to provide their own paper ballots for voters to fill out, and that nothing was done as "evil" ballots were dumped into puddles outside voting locations.

    Learning that there's so much to laugh at has been rather liberating.

  12. Did it crash because it couldn't talk to the servers in Germany?

    ReplyDelete
  13. A cover that gives them the chance to tamper with evidence?

    ReplyDelete
  14. A "mobile server"? A stand in for the one they lost in Germany? Looks like they are caught in the tangled web they weave or is it a "Q"uicksand trap? The suspense is delightful.

  15. I bet they have a code of conduct.

  17. "crash" could be like "glitch". Fake techy distraction terms. May be so dominion can get access to cover tracks ?

  18. So my title contains the word "engineer". My interpretation of this word is that I am to apply scientific and mathematical formulas, laws, and theorems to real-world problems. As I'm also heavy into the IT realm, this means that said application applies to systems (with the added knowledge of how said systems work on a physical level).

    Technical recruiters tend to be liberal arts majors that couldn't really find any real productive work and were hired because their employers wanted their "people skills" (read: ability to spend money by having their ass in a seat). Their interpretation of the word "engineer" is anybody that has even a scintilla of experience with a computer keyboard. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of these folks are trolling H1B visa factories because that's the best they can do in terms of investigative work for talent.

    I highly suspect this stuff happened because of the latter interpretation. If it weren't so sad, it would be lightly amusing.

    1. There's also an overabundance of near zero experience relatively attractive younger female tech recruiters. I can only assume they think your average single male tech goober will be joined by some female attention. Which of course may be more true than not.

  19. Sidney Powell, an attorney from whom the Trump legal team distanced themselves

    "Distanced from" Powell has become the MSM mantra. Saw the same thing here in MKE a few days ago.

    "Distanced from" almost always casts a negative light on the "from" party--here, Powell. IOW, the Nooz is implying that Powell is either dishonest or a nut-bag.

    If the MSM were honest, they'd state the truth: Powell is pursuing the Dominion angle while Giuliani is pursuing the voter-fraud angle, albeit there is some crossover.

  20. “has been the focus of voter fraud claims”

    I notice a change in framing here. A few days ago this would have been written like this:

    “has been the focus of baseless voter fraud claim”

    Also, we may have entered the “shooting fish in a barrel phase” of this sting operation, as the crooks have been duped, I mean dispatched, to the scene of the crime again, again.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Of course it wasn't tested thoroughly. It was designed to allow for more cheating and was a last minute update to ensure they could do that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If you ever wonder why you shouldn't give up just ask yourself how much wall to wall coverage would this be given if the dem candidate was making half these claims with a quarter of the evidence??

    I even have middling "normies" comment in passing now that the press is soviet like now.

    We are winning.

  24. Since Brexit passed I can't say every vote has been fixed but I will bet that most elections have a CIA thumb on the scales and Trump is threatening to blow the whole works up.

    So what we are missing out on is the high level negotiations on who to burn if anyone. Sydney Powell retweeted something about the lost lives in Germany from the raid.

  25. These obstacles are analogous to trying to get the good guys to trip on two coats of paint, turn aside at the wet paint signs on the floor, or toxic paint fumes signs. the Prometheans will try it, because they have worked on bowtie conservatives who feared tracking the jackasses' new carpet, which was bought with his hard earned money or the smell.

    Trump is different, because he will not turn aside for these things to pursue his principals. He is the start of a true Right, because he will fight for principal rather than give in to just get along. When unity & coming together are considered the greatest goods, true morals are discarded or are considered distractions. Unity and coming together are not needed if we are not diverse and apart.

    With this election, I think that I understand on a deep & emotional level what VD said about conservatism being a posture, because a Boomer coworker bought into the bite-sized nonsense that voting against Trump would restore the soul of the country. What my Boomer coworker was trying to restore was the slow cruise boat to Hell.

  26. That's hysterical. How bald-faced was the theft anyway? I figured they did a little track-hidding, but they must have done none at all. They seriously didn't even consider a thorough recount a possibility?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Speaking as a Georgia Tech graduate, the Fulton County election board must have hired graduates of the University of Georgia to do the counting and computer work. This sounds like a job for George P. Burdell (https://infogalactic.com/info/George_P._Burdell).

  31. The server :
    Where did you come from, where did you go?

    On one hand its amusing how such evil powerful creatures can be so inept It's almost if they don't fully get humans attributes that enabled us to be top of the food chain. I used to dismiss the reptile theories and still do but what if it's just a metaphor : cold blooded, only able to commit specific tasks, and survive in narrow parameters LMAO

  32. @12, Close, but not quite.

    Unlike in many other multiparty countries, where government is formed in negotiations between parties after the elections, in Sweden the parties form "blocks" prior to election, so a voter knows what the possible governemnts will be like while voting. In practice there is the left wing block and the right wing block to choose between, making Sweden a de facto biparty country.

    You are right however, in that secret ballot is a joke in Sweden. When entering voting booth, the voter must acquire the list of the block he intends to vote for from the official. The official will then know which block the voter supports, if not the party within. The lists are printed on papers of different colour so it very visible what list you are holding. Not nice at all.

    This gets particularly nasty when looking at SD (Swedish Democrats, the nationalist party) supporters' situation, as the party has never been allowed into either block and therefore must have their own list which, again, must be acquired from the official. It follows then that the official (and onlookers) will always know who votes for SD, a pariah party painted as nazis in Swedish media. This in a country where conformism is official religion and supporting anything with a whiff of controversy is social suicide.

    And yeah, SD lists have been reported not being present at voting stations or being dumped by 'activists'. Swedish elections are a joke of peer pressure, but they are (thankfully) an oddball.

    It's gone into hiding because it is afraid of what will happen to it if it falls into the hands of the FBI!

  34. When a server crashes, all you do is literally turn it off and back on again and it starts working. Servers are built with failovers. They don't "crash" in the same sense as a car crash.

    ReplyDelete
  35. "The server didn't crash. It's been reported missing."

    Prediction: Good guys reported the server crashed so that the techs would return to it. The techs went to where they were told and there was no server. Then the goods grabbed the techs, just like the good guys grabbed the server the techs were looking for.

  42. It is not possible to confuse a "crash" with "gone missing." This is a change of narrative. The server probably malfunctioned to some degree, the report was made, and reporters further reported on the malfunction.

    Then someone got on the phone and said "No, no, no, no! The 'story' is now that it's gone missing." (Because now it really had, thanks Deep State, wink, wink).

    "Send out a new report and say that the first report was just a little mistake. Oopsie."

    And now - the "missing" server probably had installed a tracking device. And Trump is following the getaway car in Marine One to the enemy's lair. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  43. So since it's missing, it could be safe to say that the "crash", was the server hitting the ground after being tossed out a window.

  47. Let me guess, they’ll find the server, at 4:00 AM, where it is supposed to be, with a sharpie marker giving it the correct serial number, and with data that points out that any apparent vote swaps to any TV network feeds was due to trans warp flux capacitor packet switching on their transmissions through the internets. Pinky swear.

  48. Heard a VP of Dominion was missing/hiding as well. What’s the likelihood he was snatched and is currently getting water boarded at a blacksite?

  49. The server went missing the same way that Epstein killed himself.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Funny thing. Most proles say "crash" whenever something outside of "pointy clicky with the mouse and it works" happens. 99 percent of "crashes" amount to somebody being an imbecile.
    99 percent this was no crash at all.
    Sounds nice and serious though. scarey!

  51. The Fulton County Dominion ser ver didn't kill itself...

  52. The server realized it contained Hillary Clinton's missing emails, and shipped itself to a secure, undisclosed location.

    ReplyDelete
  53. And this just in from the lofty MSM.
    From this day forward, any press releases from Joe Biden will not be referred to as 'Breaking News' as it might be taken to literally.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Epstein didn't kill himself, Biden didn't win, and the server didn't throw itself in a lake.

  55. Cue Scooby Doo music video with the gang chasing the masked perp with a Dominion server..

  56. Server missing, huh? Kind of like the Democrats' integrity and honesty? (As if they had any to begin with.)

    ReplyDelete
  57. @48 It's certainly possible to confuse "server's gone missing" with "server crash". When you are not able to reach a server remotely, your first thought should be "the server crashed", not "the server is missing". I work in IT, and I've been unable to reach a previously reachable server thousands of times in my career. Only once or twice was the server missing and not crashed.

    How long before the server is discovered drowned in a three inch puddle, with two self-inflicted gunshot wounds?

  62. Missing makes more sense.

    A server crashing because it cannot add to 10 million in 2020 is beyond BS.

    This in itself is evidence of cheating as the level of retardation required to screw up addition isn't plausible. Learn to code courses could get someone with an IQ of 80 to implement a voting app.
