Electronic Voting Systems with Socialist Origin

Dominion looks like a reincarnation of a socialist-controlled voting system designed from day one to manipulate votes.

Venezuela Origin: Smartmatic –> Sequoia –> Dominion




The year 2000:

Smartmatic was founded by three engineers from Venezuela and officially incorporated in Delaware in 2000 after the hanging chad controversy in the 2000 US presidential election.

Smartmatic established its headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida.

(Please note that Venezuela is a close ally of the Chinese Communist Party. Both Venezuela and China are socialist countries. )

The Year 2004:

Smartmatic expanded rapidly between 2000 and 2004 with offices in Venezuela, London, Florida, and California.

Litigations of its connections with the Chávez regime never ended.

Smartmatic bought Bizta, in which both Smartmatic and the Venezuelan government had large stakes.

“The Miami Herald revealing that the Venezuelan government owned 28 percent of Bizta – a company operated by two of the same people who own Smartmatic. Bizta bought back those shares after the article appeared, and Smartmatic now characterizes the deal as a loan.

“Bizta and Smartmatic had partnered with Venezuelan telephone giant CANTV to win a $91 million contract to supply electronic voting machines for Venezuelan elections, including the controversial 2004 referendum Chavez won. Smartmatic categorically denies any link to the Chavez regime.”

The Year 2005:

Smartmatic purchased Sequoia Voting Systems, one of the leading US companies in automated voting products.

The Year 2006:

Sequoia provided technical assistance in the elections held in Chicago and Cook County by sending a number of Venezuelan nationals to support the machines manufactured by Sequoia.

“Meanwhile, a Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor recently concluded after two days of testing that vote totals on a Sequoia model, different from those used here, could be manipulated. That prompted Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County to scrap plans to buy the machines.”

Bain Capital, which is connected to Mitt Romney, purchased Sequoia (Smartmatic-US).


(Please note that Mitt Romney is in Biden’s “hard drives from hell” with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.)

The Year 2011:

Dominion Voting Systems, a previously little-known Canadian company engaged in manufacturing electronic voting hardware and optical scanners, acquired Sequoia Voting Systems

The Year 2014:

Sequoia filed a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code.

SGO (Lord Malloch-Brown) acquired Smartmatic(UK)

Smartmatic’s chairman is a member of the British House of Lords, Mark Malloch Brown, a former vice-chairman of George Soros’ Investment Funds, former vice-president at the World Bank, lead international partner at Sawyer Miller, a political consulting firm, and former vice-chair of the World Economic Forum who “remains deeply involved in international affairs.” The company’s reported globalist ties have caused members of the media and government officials to raise questions about its involvement in the U.S. electoral process.
