Hacktivist Group ‘Anonymous’ Claims So

According to Radio host Thom Hartmann, the hacktivist group Anonymous claim they are the reason that Karl Rove had a near meltdown on Fox News on Nov. 6, Election Night 2012, after stopping him from stealing the election.

Thom Hartmann reported the claim on his radio show Friday, and seen in the above video clip.

To note, Anonymous has claimed things in the past which later turned out to be false.  This one, however, is interesting:  they claim the election was rigged, discovered the source, and stopped votes from being transferred and ‘flipped’.  They said Karl Rove, Republican campaign manager and former advisor to George W. Bush, tried to hack and steal the 2012 election.

Republican strategist Karl Rove seemed incredibly shocked when the results came back from Ohio.  He was genuinely amazed and in disbelief over results favoring Obama’s lead.  Rove insisted the Ohio tally was incorrect, and should be double checked.

The denial was so pervasive that Rove flatly told Fox News analysts they were wrong.  Rove and his campaign riggers truly believed the Ohio results and 2012 election were in the bag— hence no concession speech was either needed or reportedly written by Mitt Romney. 

When the Ohio results did come in, Fox News anchors looked genuinely stunned as if they had been hit upside the head with a brick.  Karl Rove’s financial supporters—shoveling a ton of money into Rove’s campaign coffers ensuring ‘their candidate’ would win at all costs—were mightily pissed.

A billion dollars had been spent without a single negligible result to show for it.  Republican donors, the Koch brothers, Super PACs, and the ‘dark money’ organizations had all lost their money.  Karl Rove was the front man who was supposed to deliver Romney to the Oval Office at all costs, giving them a return on their hefty investment.

But how would he do that?

As Hartmann noted, in the book “Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove’s Secret Kingdom of Power,” author Craig Unger documented how, in the 2004 election:

The Ohio vote was counted in Ohio, at 11:13 p.m. at night, the entire Ohio voting system crashed.

A minute later they came up.

In that minute, all the votes had been re-routed through a server system in Tennessee, and so all the vote totals flowed back into the system in Ohio, and John Kerry lost, even though the exit polls showed him winning.”

Was the crashing of servers, rerouting of votes, and alleged vote flipping going to happen again in 2012?  Why didn’t Ohio go for Romney in 2012?

And here’s where it gets really interesting:  Curiously enough, the exact same thing did happen again.  The Ohio Secretary of State’s vote tabulation website went down exactly at 11:13 p.m.  Rove even mentioned it on the air.

Coincidence?  Possibly.  In this age of technology, hackers throwing a monkey wrench into the works isn’t beyond the realm of possibility.  Computers are subject to bugs– take this example of a voting machine that would not allow the user to vote for Obama on Nov. 6.

However, according to this report, Anonymous stopped any voter fraud from happening.  The hacker group put up firewalls on election night to stop any data from flowing out of Ohio.

The Examiner.com website reported:

According to the story, Anonymous discovered Rove’s plan months in advance and began coding firewalls to block ‘kingmakers’ from changing votes on Election Day.  Networkers working for Rove tested the hack in the days leading up to November 6, while firewalls were disabled.

On Election Day (at least by Anonymous’ account) Rove’s “worker bees” made 105 attempts to cross through firewalls, but the hacker network successfully kept them out.  They offered specific (albeit coded) details regarding Rove’s attempt, and hinted that more details may appear on Wiki Leaks in the future.”

Anonymous, according to their “letter,” could have tried to capture the data and expose the criminals, but that would have been far too risky.  Instead, they closed the hole that Rove was going to use and blocked the theft of the election.

Is there any real proof that this happened?

No.  But based on Anonymous past exploits, however, we believe it is possible.  In addition, in late October, Anonymous posted a little viewed video here that warned Rove and others that their theft of the election was not going to be successful.

It would be very interesting if Anonymous captured enough information to give the Justice Department evidence to take down the criminal scoundrels.  Odds are it won’t happen.  Still, it would indeed be interesting to see Rove and others brought to task.

We won’t put anything past what shenanigans Boss Rove and his political cronies might do.  We’d like to see an investigation brought forward if any of the claims come close to even being remotely true.

    KARL ROVE NEEDS INVESTIGATING! HE CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO CHOOSE OUR PRESIDENT! WHEN I VOTED IN 2000, MY VOTES ALL FLIPPED FROM DEMOCRAT, TO REPUBLICAN! I CAUGHT IT IN TIME!

  2. Plain Jane says:

    That was my first suspicion over how incredulous he was about the Ohio returns. I am concerned, though, about how insecure our voting system is. If the likes of Rove and “Anonymous” can tamper with it, how can it be trusted?

    Bullsh*t non-story. Obama won in a landslide because everyone who *wasn’t closet-racist* and had *half* a brain saw through Rmoney’s transparency and his intentional gaffes (why are airplane windows round, whats the deal with that? well f*ck you Mittens, its to ensure pressure against them is equally distributed so the f*cking windows are never breached causing the f*cking plane to crash.

    IMHO Romney never WANTED to win, his candidacy was just a f8cking financial investment and I’m sure he’s many more millions richer after running in — and LOSING — two elections.

    And utah was the first state anywhere, ever, to outlaw pot: http://tinyurl.com/1mn
    It’s not a war on (some) drugs it’s a war on minorities to replace outlawed slave labor with prison labor, and alcohol and tobacco are the two most dangerous natural drugs on the planet; you use safer drugs, you run the risk of Uncle Sam ruining your entire life or just flat-out killing you, because ‘subversively depopulate the planet at all costs’ is the game every government is playing.

    STOP HAVING F8CKING KIDS YOU F8CKING INBREDS

    Duggars, I’m talking to you, boy i’m glad you’re fucking vagina fell out you stupid f8cking redneck.
