US Elections were November 3, 2020. Much of the voting equipment was by Dominion. Three days later, on November 6th, AT&T named William “Bill” E. Kennard Chairman of its Board of Directors. https://archive.is/qqjBh Paul E. Singer-Elliott Management, aka “The Vulture”, reportedly controls CNN parent, AT&T, as well as Twitter. Singer reportedly funded the original investigation into Trump, that later morphed into Russiagate.
Kennard is member of the operating Executive Board of Staple Street Capital, which acquired Dominion Voting Systems in July of 2018.
Canada doesn’t use Dominion voting systems, even though it is based in Canada. They use paper ballots, counted by hand in front of witnesses. https://twitter.com/ElectionsCan_E/status/1328449565096366083
Dominion was used in Antrim County, Michigan, and reportedly showed Biden beating Trump by 3,000 votes, when in fact Trump beat Biden by 2,500. This was caught simply because it was an anomaly for the traditionally Republican county to go Democrat. Thus, Biden’s win was reversed, and Trump won Antrim county. This event is a mini-model of what is believed to have occurred on a larger scale.

Who controls CNN parent AT&T according to media reports? Paul E. Singer-Elliott Management, aka “The Vulture” (an insult to vultures). Starting in 2015, Singer reportedly funded the initial oppositional research against Trump, which, eventually morphed into Russiagate. He apparently hired GPS Fusion; then Hillary later picked up the research. In particular, Singer is said to have been behind attempts to tie Trump to the mafia.
It was reportedly due to pressure, by Singer-Elliott, that AT&T is outsourcing American jobs to India H1B visa workers, putting America last. Not only does Singer benefit from H1Bs that Trump is trying to restrict and that Biden wants to expand, Singer is apparently in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants, as well: https://web.archive.org/web/20200710201400/https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/660795917973499904 Singer has put money into Republican Congressional leadership-races, apparently to bribe them to increase immigration and to get special LBGT rights. He doesn’t have to bribe the “Democrats” to get his way. Biden-Harris want to massively increase immigration of all varieties, and do anything that LBGT activists want. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2020/10/15/vulture-capitalist-paul-singer-elliott-management-behind-twitter-censor-locking-of-ny-post-hunter-biden-articles/
Less than two months after buying $3.2 billion of AT&T stock, Elliott got AT&T to agree to “cut costs, bring on two new board members, and review portfolio companies.” Senator Schumer’s brother, Robert Schumer, served as legal counsel Elliott Management “in some of its most prominent deals and campaigns to shake up large companies”, including oil and gas” See: “Meet Bob Schumer, the lawyer who helped Adam Neumann secure a $1.7 billion exit package that infuriated some WeWork employees” by Casey Sullivan – October 30, 2019 https://archive.vn/E8bDI Business Insider (Schumer’s brother, Robert, worked for Singer for years, as well as for at least one coal company).
Paul E. Singer-Elliott tried to get rid of Jack Dorsey. So, Dorsey appears hostage to Paul Singer-Elliott and the apparent fall guy for the US Congress: ”Twitter and activist investor agree on truce to keep Jack Dorsey as chief” https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/mar/09/twitter-jack-dorsey-elliott-management-agreement

While Dominion is headquartered in Canada, Canada doesn’t use it:
Texas rejected Dominion as not fit for use. According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office in early 2020 (excerpt): “The following are the findings, based on written evidence submitted by the Vendor in support of its application for certification, oral evidence presented at the examination, and the findings of the voting system examiners as set out in their written reports. The examiner reports identified multiple hardware and software issues that preclude the Office of the Texas Secretary of State from determining that the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system satisfies each of the voting-system requirements set forth in the Texas Election Code. Specifically, the examiner reports raise concerns about whether the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system is suitable for its intended purpose; operates efficiently and accurately; and is safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation. Therefore, the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system and corresponding hardware devices do not meet the standards for certification prescribed by Section 122.001 of the Texas Election Code. Accordingly, based upon the foregoing, I hereby deny certification of Dominion Voting Systems’ Democracy Suite 5.5-A system for use in Texas elections. Signed under my hand and seal of office, this ~day of½ 2020. ESPARZA, DEPUTY SECRETARY OF STATE”
“Exclusive: Critical U.S. Election Systems Have Been Left Exposed Online Despite Official Denials The top voting machine company in the country insists that its election systems are never connected to the internet. But researchers found 35 of the systems have been connected to the internet for months and possibly years, including in some swing states.” By Kim Zetter 8.8.19, VICE: https://archive.is/9oAcP
Small excerpt from Michigan contract with Dominion CONTRACT #071B7700117:
“Method 2 – Dial-up and Cellular Modem transmission
The ImageCast Precinct tabulators can be deployed with remote transmission options to transfer encrypted results files from the precinct (if used as Election Day tabulators) or hub (if used as AVCBs) to the Elections Office. This can be done by landline modem, or by wireless cellular modem.
ImageCast Precinct: The ImageCast Precinct tabulators are equipped with internal dial-up modems, and can also transmit results via an external cellular modem.
Transmission of results via modem is a very intuitive process, involving minimal input from a poll worker. After the polls have been closed, the poll worker has the option to select “Results Transfer” from the Main menu. The results transfer settings, which contain precinct-specific network data pre-configured from the EMS System, will appear. To upload the results to the ImageCast Listener server, the poll worker presses “Start” within the Results Transfer option.
The modem must be plugged into the unit in order to begin results transmission. The intuitive user interface on the tabulator informs the poll worker of the status of the upload and when it is completed, as seen on the screenshots below.” https://www.michigan.gov/documents/localgov/7700117_555468_7.pdf

William E. Kennard joined the Carlyle group on May 14, 2001, months before 911: “Kennard was Managing Director of The Carlyle Group, a global private equity firm with over $100 billion under management. Kennard joined The Carlyle Group in May 2001, where he led investments in the telecommunications and media sectors.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Kennard
“Carlyle’s 2001 investor conference took place on September 11, 2001. In the weeks following the meeting, it was reported that Shafiq bin Laden, a member of the Bin Laden family, had been the “guest of honor”, and that they were investors in Carlyle managed funds. Later reports confirmed that the Bin Laden family had invested $2 million into Carlyle’s $1.3 billion Carlyle Partners II Fund in 1995, making the family relatively small investors with the firm. However, their overall investment might have been considerably larger, with the $2 million committed in 1995 only being an initial contribution that grew over time.… The Bin Laden family liquidated its holdings in Carlyle’s funds in October 2001, just after the September 11 attacks, when the connection of their family name to the Carlyle Group’s name became impolitic.”.

2005 FCC “Biography Of William E. Kennard
As chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission from November, 1997 to January, 2001, William E. Kennard presided over the FCC at an historic time. During his tenure, he shaped policies that created an explosion of new wireless phones, brought the Internet to a majority of American households, and resulted in billions of dollars of investment in new broadband technologies. At the same time, he implemented bold new policies to bridge the digital divide in the United States and around the world.
During his tenure, William E. Kennard fought to bring the benefits of a more competitive marketplace to all consumers. His procompetitive implementation of the historic Telecommunications Act of 1996 contributed to the development of a competitive local telephone industry in the United States which has attracted over $50 billion in revenues since 1996. He also shaped the outcome of the most significant communications mergers in history, such as AOL-Time Warner, Worldcom-MCI, CBS-Viacom, Verizon-GTE and SBC-Ameritech.
As FCC chairman, Kennard promoted the benefits of competition and deregulation worldwide. He pioneered an innovative Development Initiative to assist countries in the developing world to participate more fully in the global information infrastructure. Through this initiative, Kennard signed the first partnership agreements on behalf of the FCC with ten countries on four continents to share U.S. regulatory experience with emerging regulatory authorities.
Kennard is well-known for his advocacy for people at risk of being stranded on the wrong side of the digital divide. He aggressively implemented the FCC’s e-rate program by investing over $6 billion to bring the Internet to 95% of K-12 schools and 58,000 libraries in the United States. During his tenure, the FCC dramatically expanded access to communications technologies for people with disabilities. The FCC adopted policies to increase telephone service to rural areas, especially for Native Americans living on tribal lands. Kennard also reached out to create more ownership and employment opportunities for women and minorities.
U.S. News and World Report dubbed Kennard a “consumer champion for the digital age.” He has received many honors and awards for his accomplishments as chairman, including awards from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the Easter Seals Foundation, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and honorary degrees from Howard University, Long Island University and Gallaudet University.
William Kennard is currently a Senior Fellow at the Aspen Institute, Communications and Society Program, in Washington, D.C.

Apologies to vultures, who are useful creatures, unlike Paul E. Singer and his partners, who are a blight upon the earth.
Update note: There are media reports that Elliott Management sold its AT&T stock and that it’s in a November 16, 2020 filing. However, we have been unable to find the filing on the SEC.gov web site. Nor did we find it on the AT&T web site (though it may still be there someplace.) Elliott supposedly sold it at the end of September. Since the media can no longer be trusted, we can’t be certain without an original document.
