Letter to Ottawa County Board and Clerk Regarding Election Integrity Dated 04/12/2021
Dear Board and Clerk Roebuck,
I want to thank those of you who responded to my letter of concern 2/22/2021, including Clerk Roebuck who gave a detailed response. Regarding Clerk Roebuck’s letter, I am glad there is agreement and acknowledgment that there needs to be some election reforms, such as in the matter of recount procedures, but I am very troubled by the following main message of his letter:
“While we work toward reforms that will make our elections stronger and more secure, we must also confront the misinformation and lies that have been spoken regarding the conduct of the November 3, 2020 Election. While no human endeavor can be completely free from error, the November election was conducted fairly and accurately across the state, and there has yet to emerge any firm evidence of widespread impropriety or fraud in the City of Detroit or any other community across the state.”
It should be noted that Clerk Roebuck is making a statement of attestation statewide, and not just regarding Ottawa County. This is important, because if there was significant election fraud in Detroit, even if there was complete election integrity in Ottawa County, then that translates into Ottawa County voters being defrauded and not being provided with a free and fair election, since many of their votes were cast for statewide office or electors.
Let’s consider some evidence in order to ascertain whether Clerk Roebuck’s statement of attestation is true or false:
1. Clerk Roebuck does not address the detailed evidence of fraud in such articles as https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/02/exclusive-tcf-center-election-fraud-newly-recovered-video-shows-late-night-deliveries-tens-thousands-illegal-ballots-michigan-arena/ and https://letsfixstuff.org/2020/11/election-fraud-in-michigan/ and https://www.democracydocket.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/45/2020/11/Johnson-Petition-for-Extraordinary-Writs-1.pdf .
2. Clerk Roebuck does not address the illegal mailing out of ballots by the Michigan Secretary of State’s office – for example, see https://pjmedia.com/election/tyler-o-neil/2020/11/30/explosive-michigan-illegally-counted-or-ignored-500k-ballots-lawsuit-claims-n1181826
3. Clerk Roebuck evades my concern of foreign control over voting machine providers by stating that “all three equipment vendors used in the State of Michigan are headquartered in the United States.” They could all be headquartered on Main Street in Jenison, and that would be of limited consequence if a majority of their corporate shares were effectively owned and controlled by branches of the Communist Chinese government. Why do we not publicly know the full ownership of these companies and demand it all be by US citizens?
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-03/private-equity-controls-the-gatekeepers-of-american-democracy – “Three companies dominate the U.S. voting-maching industry…Experts say some equipment remains vulnerable to hacking…Three obscure, private equity-backed companies control an estimated $300 million U.S. voting-machine industry. Though most of their revenue comes from taxpayers, and they play an indispensable role in determining the balance of power in America, the companies largely function in secret.”
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/all/chinese-parts-hidden-ownership-growing-scrutiny-inside-america-s-biggest-n1104516 – “The secrecy of ES&S and its competitors has pushed politicians to seek information on security, oversight, finances and ownership. This month, a group of Democratic politicians sent the private equity firms that own the major election vendors a letter asking them to disclose a range of such information, including ownership, finances and research investments. “The voting machine lobby, led by the biggest company, ES&S, believes they are above the law,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., a member of the Intelligence Committee who co-signed the letter. “They have not had anybody hold them accountable even on the most basic matters.”
4. Clerk Roebuck avers that ” no voter in Michigan received an absentee ballot without first submitting an absentee ballot application, and that application was verified by each local city and township throughout the state.” Yet consider the following documented evidence at https://www.democracydocket.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/45/2020/11/Johnson-Petition-for-Extraordinary-Writs-1.pdf :
“10. In Michigan, the Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson, a registered Democrat, acting unilaterally and without legislative approval, flooded the electoral process for the 2020 general election with absentee ballots. The Secretary of State accomplished this partisan scheme by unilaterally sending absentee ballot request forms to every household in Michigan with a registered voter (no matter if the voter was still alive or lived at that address) and to non-registered voters who were temporarily living in Michigan or who were not United States citizens.
11. Respondent Benson also permitted online requests for absentee ballots without signature verification, thereby allowing for fraud in obtaining an absentee ballot.
12. Worse, Respondent Benson sent unsolicited ballots to countless thousands living in Michigan and in some cases to citizens of other states.”
“The Secretary of State also sent ballots to people who requested ballots online, but failed to sign the request. See adverse Affidavit of Jonathan Brater, Head of Elections Appendix 317 at ¶10. RECEIVED by MSC 11/26/2020 2:44:12 AM 39 187. As of October 7, 2020, Brater admits sending at least 74,000 absentee ballots without a signed request as mandated by the Michigan Legislature. 188. By the Election, we must infer that the actual number of illegal ballots sent was much higher.”
Notice what https://www.senatorruthjohnson.com/senate-elections-committee-hears-from-local-clerks-frustrated-with-secretary-of-states-office/ documents:
“Why would the state mail applications to voters that have moved out of the state and were flagged in the voter software as surrendering their Michigan driver’s license?” said Cass County Clerk Monica McMichael in written testimony to the committee, referring to Benson’s decision to include individuals flagged by the state as likely no longer living in Michigan in its mass mailing of absentee ballot applications. Clerks also expressed doubt about the security of the new online absentee ballot application launched by the secretary of state. Johnson has previously raised concerns about the integrity of the portal that pulls in a digital signature file from the secretary of state’s records to affix to the absentee ballot application after answering a few questions. “I am concerned because the voter submitting this application does not sign the application upon completion digitally, the signature is pulled from the Qualified Voter File and populated onto the application,” said Brighton City Clerk Tara Brown. “Checking the voter’s signature before sending a ballot is a very important step to confirm the ballot being sent is actually to the voter who requested it.” “We were being told to verify the signatures against themselves,” McCullough said. “This is no verification.”
5. Clerk Roebuck’s asserts that “there is no evidence to support any wrongdoing by … the Secretary of State’s office.” It contradicts what a Michigan judge has concluded after review of the evidence: “A Michigan judge ruled last week Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) broke state law when she unilaterally issued rules related to absentee balloting, legitimizing a key claim made by the Trump campaign in its legal challenges to the 2020 election.” – https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2021/03/16/mi-court-michigan-secretary-of-states-absentee-ballot-order-broke-law-vindicating-trump-claim/
6. Clerk Roebuck asserts that “there is no evidence to support any wrongdoing by Antrim County, Dominion Voting…” It contradicts evidence presented in the article at https://100percentfedup.com/attorney-matt-deperno-drops-new-bombshell-claims-in-antrim-co-caseevidence-will-prove-mi-sec-of-state-and-mi-ag-are-wrong-in-false-assertion-that-this-was-the-safest-election-in-history/ , such as this: “Dominion’s vote totals showed 663 people voted in a district where there were only 6 eligible voters and only 3 of those 6 actually voted. Somehow, Dominion added 660 additional votes to the final tally…”
7. Clerk Roebuck states: “All of our election programming is conducted in our office, and by our staff.” He is likely confusing the term “programming” with the term “settings data entry”, which are two very different things. Hart and other voting machine companies hire computer programmers to program their software. County clerks offices typically do “settings and other data entry”. The programming source code of all voting machines should be open to the public for public inspection and review, which it is not.
8. Clerk Roebuck states that “our programming computers are never connected to the internet.” Fine, but voting machines in the election precincts sometimes are, and they are susceptible to being hacked. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/apr/22/us-voting-machine-private-companies-voter-registration – “In the push for more transparency, computer scientists and academics have been buying voting machines and hacking them. The most famous example came out of the 2017 Defcon hacking conference where computer scientists released a report describing how they hacked a suite of voting machines and the poor computer programming they found.”
In order to adequately address these issues, it is necessary for elected leaders in Ottawa County to acknowledge the problems and join in alliance with those willing to remedy the problems throughout the state. Or has the whole become such a modern corrupt Babel that it is unrealistic to think any significant part would seek by God’s grace true election integrity and the blessings of a Christian constitutional republic? We must pray for Biblical repentance and reformation.
