Dead Commie Hugo Chavez Flipped Votes to Biden: Wot?

Or: Whack Jobs, Inc.©  Have fun!

Various versions of this yarn are out there, but this may be the wildest one, and there’svideo, to boot, although I have no idea whassup with the ad:

‘CIA, Gina Haspel and Hugo Chavez’ SmartMatic Behind USA Steal’, Nov. 17, 2020, David Knight,

It also includes a jumbled transcript in which someone had improved his memory, having named that Marxist ‘Dilma Rousseff’. But hey, it’s only 6 minutes or so; you’ll love it!

Next up: ‘Yes, those ‘glitches’ are from the same software that made Venezuela’s elections so free and fair’, By Monica Showalter, Nov. 8, 2020,

That Venezuela smell was back in U.S. election news when the press reported that a voting machine ‘glitch’ flipped some 6,000 votes cast for President Trump to Joe Biden in Michigan.

Hadn’t we heard that story before? Flipped votes in computer systems? The last time we heard about that was in Venezuela’s 2004 fraud-plagued recall referendum on then-President Hugo Chavez. Millions and millions of Venezuelans marched in the streets against him, and then when the recall referendum was held, it failed hugely, something that seemed very strange given the size of the crowds. That was the fiasco that official election observer Jimmy Carter praised so highly as free and fair “despite what went on in the totalization room” according to the Carter Center report.

After that, computer scientists from Amherst, Stanford, U.C. Santa Cruz, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard all found evidence of vote flipping statistically speaking. Besides their conclusions that it was a statistical impossibility, a well-known pollster, Penn, Schoen & Berland, taking exit polls at the same referendum found that 60% were in favor of throwing Chavez out, and 40% favored keeping him. Much to his surprise, the scorecard came out in almost the exact reverse, 58-42. Flipped.

And there are machines that flip votes. It’s one reason why many, such as Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds, thinks only a return to paper ballots and in-person voting will restore confidence in flawed electoral systems.” […]

“As Andrea Widburg noted in her excellent piece here, the company name for these vote-flipping machines, is named Dominion.

And guess what: They’re using the same technology as Smartmatic, the mysterious Venezuelan company that blew in from nowhere with a gargantuan contract to count the Venezuelan votes, starting with that flawed recall referendum. In fact, the companies, via the intermediary subsidiary Sequoia, used to be the same.”

Will Sommer adds a new player to the cast in his ‘Here’s How Hugo Chavez, Dead Since 2013, Became Responsible for Trump’s Election Loss’,, Nov. 19, 2020

“The Trump campaign presented the public with a cornucopia of bogus new election fraud claims on Thursday, including one that seemed to have its roots in a 2016 conspiracy involving perpetual GOP boogeyman George Soros.

The press conference will be remembered best for Rudy Giuliani, who in between trying to wipe up the apparent hair dye dripping down his face, promised that he had over 100 affidavits showing voter fraud, but alas, just couldn’t show them to anyone. But the real star was attorney Sidney Powell, who has been at the vanguard of absolute election nonsense since election night.

On Thursday, Powell declared that she had found the real villains behind Trump’s election defeat: billionaire Soros and deceased Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. In Powell’s telling, Chavez had been pulling the strings on American voting software this whole time.”  […]

“This week, Powell finally made an offering and it quickly sunk to the bottom of the sea. On Tuesday, allied attorney Lin Wood released “the kraken” — a heavily redacted affidavit from an anonymous former Venezuelan military official who saw Chavez many years ago playing around with a supposedly rigged Smartmatic machine.

“It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez while he was being briefed on how it worked. He was with Hugo Chavez when he saw it operated. He made sure the election came out his way,” Powell said on Thursday.

Powell also claimed that Soros controlled the voting machines, because the former chairman of Datamatic is also on the board of a Soros foundation a striking echo of a claim that appeared in The Daily Caller ahead of the 2016 election.”

This beats collating and comparing and contrasting coverage of links I’d snagged on Biden’s cabinet nominations.  But one thing to remember: he’s hit out of the ballpark when it comes to ‘diversity’!  And after the holidays it all might change, yes?

  1. Just came here from b’s recap on Biden reshuffles, and my thought is that the pool of would be servants of government (tongue in cheek that one) is fast shrinking, as we saw with the selection of Biden. This might be the last round, folk — the end is in sight. There’s just not that many willing servants any more; oh, the humanity!

    But something to indeed be thankful for, this is it. It can’t go on forever this way; new day coming…

    We in the arid southwestern mountains got rain last night. So, sure, can moan about the leaks, but layers of leaves (my main crop) soggily decomposing – thanksgiving for that as well – rejoice, little wormies. I even have juncos splashing about in my decrepid copper bird bath! I know, same old, same old, foolish hope the garden will be better this time, but at least I know the soil will be, in my little patch — it will!

    I’m not much use for politics these days, wendye — sorry! Well, days are numbered and I’m going to spend them as best I can getting ready for spring (it’s right around the corner now so I’d rather look forward to that than prognostigate about administrations and shady doings on the political front. ) I caught a brief bit on PBS about South American global warming approaches to Pacha Mama – hey, they are with it up there with the alpacas and the potatoes! Way to go, high mountaineers! You have Machu Pichu to inspire you,what a place!

    Best wishes to all who farm the land. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I’ve got a piece in the works, you may or may not be happy to hear — I know it is tricky posting such these days, so my thought is if you could do the honors with a small entry I will send you, then I could buttress it with comments. Not right away, but coming after the holidays maybe. I’m looking into the Samaritans – intriguing history they have … gotta research more.

    But all okay if that doesn’t sound good, or if it peters out … ;)

    • what might work best is if you email me the text of your diary, a title, suggest any art or images you’d like, and i could post it as a guest post. wordpress has made it very hard for using the classic editor rather than the infernal ‘block editor’, although i’ve figured out a rather complicated work-around to that.

      but my ‘how to post a diary at the café’ is useless now, and i can’t quite imagine when i’d have the time (or organizational skills) to rework it. it means publishing a title, then coming back into the site later to add to it in a way that seems a bit tricky to me.

      but the good thing is that even thought here are so few here comprising a commentariat, your posts could travel with you to comments at other sites, say MoA.

      autumn. yes, we got a scurf on snow last night, but not the16″ weather underground had predicted for the mountains. ; )

  3. Thank you, wendye. I have an essay almost completed, just need to make it more compact. And if you can’t use it, or just enjoy no worries. I will let you know how many words; the title is Seeds. No extra stuff needed, but it might be too long for you to manage comfortably so that is fine; I will just keep it or you can enjoy it as an email. I think it would be too long to post as a comment anywhere else.

  4. Here’s what I’ve just written as the epigraph to the essay:

    A flock of cranes
    Flew over my house
    Calling and weaving their patterns;
    One, apart, headed south alone.
    The flock remained in shifting, woven threads
    White wings glinting against the brightness of the sun.
    The lone crane disappeared;
    Then, hearing, they followed.

    It might be just enough if I post fragments now and then? I could do that.

  5. Just as comments I mean, not to intrude on your posts but as with this one, rather triggered by your title, this being that time of year, dead leaves and all, along with the ongoing pandemic in many countries. I always do think of the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas as our winter – spring coming after the solstice with light increasing – I’m daft that way.

    But, as always, not if you’d rather keep the site factually oriented. as my posts do tend to meander, like the cranes…

    • it would be simple for me to enter what you write as: ‘a guest post by juliania’, no matter the length. earlier you’d mentioned writing about ‘the good samaritan’ as well.

      as i’d said, it would be a good way to showcase your work and thoughtful prose at other sites by title and url.

      not sandhill cranes then? or are there some with white wings? but either way, i’d think it would cry for images, even if i’d crop one to use at the top like a wide banner.

      please let me know by email. love to you, ww,

      if i could write prose rather than copy/paste i would. but these days…

  6. Yes, their wings are white as the sun hits them, not really — a rather drab grey brown when you see them on the ground. They circle to catch the thermals for height — usually only when flying north so they can get over the mountains, but these ones had chosen to do so I think because the leader had already risen very high up heading south at a fast clip, leaving them behind.

    My essay is still on the Samaritans – just got the cranes coming in on their own. They seem to be coming very late this year, but maybe not. October did stay very hot though.

    I’ll keep working on it, let you know.

    • i’ve download a couple photos of flocks or sandhills in flight; they might do when cropped to banner size. if you don’t care for them, i can always edit them out.

      a strange weather brew here. no sanhills here, but flock of blue herons often nests on the mancos river, one or two pop into our pubbles now and again. not this year: too dry, no puddles.
