The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear Readers,

We all are aware in America of the huge drama that has created the political scandal around the supposed hacking of the 2016 election by external influences interested in to deviate the outcome in its best convenience.

who is going to be indicted or fired the first in the 2016 election political scandal?

During the last weeks we are seeing more witnesses that have decided to plead guilty in the charges of lying under oath when they were interrogated about their roles in the 2016 campaign in America.

G. Papadopolous Adviser plead guilty of lying in investigations of political scandal

M. Flynn adviser pleads guilty of lying to FBI in investigation of political scandal

This terrible legal conundrum, to decide if external funding or support to political campaigns can invalidate electoral results is already the worst political scandal in the USA since Watergate.

Please check:

In unprecedented action the Government of Colombia become this week to be the first country, among all the ones the ones that will have Presidential and Congress election in 2018 around the world, to announce the creation of a official special investigation and national security unit specifically created to shield their incoming voting of any attempt of hacking or cyberattacks.

Please check

Republic of Colombia creates intelligence Unit to protect their election of external Hacking or cyberattacks

This is sending a very clear message to the world, first that the international community is checking the progress of the investigation that in America is taking place of its own internal political turmoil, and second that Other countries are extremely worried to follow us in a situation so grave that questions the legitimacy of the elections results.

This Historic announce was given by President Juan M. Santos who was awarded with the Nobel of Peace in 2016 and who is the head of state of the eldest democracy in the continent after the American one.

Considering that 2018 is an extremely important year in elections around the world in many countries ( Egypt, Mali, Cyprus, Czechia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Georgia, Irland, Mexico, Colombia, Italy, Finland, Brazil, Costa Rica, ..., Venezuela, Russia??!!!) chances are that we are going to see more decisions like this one in other places to protect elections from external malicious influences.

Thanks for your attention,

The easiest way to avoid hacking of elections? Paper ballots and hand counting. They may have problems but it beats having a hacker swinging an election from a laptop at a Starbucks.

Hi Dear ntech,

Here the problem as far as it has been suggested by the multiple criminal investigations that are running on the 2016 election scandal is Not that the votes were actually altered through any electronic means, but that there were there situations:

1) illegal funding of at least one of the campaigns, possible both, that was funneled through foundations from foreign governments interested in to influence the election.

2) that electronic espionage was carried out to obtain information that was confidential from the wikileaks that damaged one of the candidates.

3) that there were cyberattacks against the websites and email servers of at least one of the campaigns in what could be also part of a political espionage scheme.

I really pray to God that at No point of this political scandal something else closer to the actual voting or the computation of the votes would be substantiated, since that is possible the only way to really invalidate an election.

Now, following your suggestion, I think the only way to stop completely risk of boycott in the communications of the campaign might be to return to the time all was done in paper, including the mailing between headquarters and regional offices, but is that really practical?

Watergate involved to electronic espionage but it was carried out over recordings of meetings and possible private telephone conversations.
