This Means They Ceded Ownership of Election to Their Outside System Provider | 06 May 2021 | The Maricopa County Election team claims they do not have 'Admin' access to their voting machines.

By allowing Dominion to have the administration access only, Maricopa County has basically turned over the system to the Dominion voting machine system people. There is no IT control here [in Maricopa County] because that's been ceded to Dominion.

Harris on Monday that Maricopa County officials are not in compliance with subpoenas signed by Senate President Karen Fann and Senate Judiciary Chair Warren Petersen.

"The plan being discussed inside DHS, according to multiple sources, would, in effect, allow the department to circumvent" laws that limit what the federal government can do in surveilling U.S. citizens without a warrant, CNN reported. "A source familiar with the effort said it is not about decrypting data but rather using outside entities who can legally access these private groups to gather large amounts of information that could help DHS identify key narratives as they emerge."

With the administration’s push to get the vaccines into the arms of every American having stalled, there is a dilemma for the one-party government...

He made it a point to single out "rural more Republican areas" that had excess vaccine inventories citing a New York Times report.
