Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium – Day 1

Yes. I’ve been watching the Mike Lindell cyber symposium.

I was invited to attend (thank you again to Amanda Freeman Chase), but due to timing, my day job, and my understanding of the event format … I thought I could be more effective watching from home with the ability multi-task and to research things I heard real-time and continue my ongoing work in the background.

There’s a lot of fluff that was presented, which is fine. But Dr. Frank’s presentation was very very good, which was the first presentation I caught, and while I haven’t cross checked his methods (yet), they mostly corroborate the artifacts that I have seen as well using very different and rigorous techniques … at least at first blush going off of his presentation. (It’s now on my todo list to replicate his results.)

I am less convinced of the PCAP’s, and the theory that there was an organized (China backed) conspiracy to commit fraud as I’m still not sure as to some of the details as to data origin, methods, etc. I do find it very plausible. I just need more details. (I’m very familiar with PCAP’s, etc. but there are a lot more details that are required.)

However, until I get a better in depth look at the PCAP data and the code used to reconstruct Mike’s “corrected” maps, I think there is a simpler explanation: It is not required that fraud, manipulation or incompetence needs to have been organized to be effective. There does not need to be a nefarious man-behind-the-curtain. I think it more likely that we are looking at many mechanisms affecting our elections (plural), not a major singular effort. Thats my operating theory anyway.
