Corruption runs rampant at Democratic establishment levels. Here are several examples of how primaries and caucuses are being stolen by Hillary Clinton supporters.

Arizona

In a previous article, Democratic Party Steals Arizona Primary Election for Hillary Clinton, we catalogued the ways which Bernie Sanders was robbed of a primary victory in the Grand Canyon State. In Arizona's Maricopa County, the state's most populous, the number of polling places was reduced from 200 to 60, resulting in waits of over five hours to vote for thousands of people. Many would-be voters simply gave up and went home without voting. The lack of polling sites was particularly extreme in poor areas, where the support for Bernie Sanders was overwhelming.

"Strip and Flip"

"Strip and Flip" is a strategy to to STRIP citizens of their voting rights, then FLIP the electronic vote count if voter suppression laws are insufficient to guarantee a win for the corporate one percent.

"Stripping" has historically been based upon race, rooted in the strategies of the Jim Crow South. Today it centers on racist demands for voter IDs and other scams designed to make it difficult to impossible for African-Americans, Latinos, the young and poor people to vote.

"Flipping" happens when electronic voting machines are hacked to flip the vote from one candidate to his or her opponent. Almost all of the nation's voting machines are now ten years old or older, and they can be easily hacked. Moreover, there is no way to detect this, as they were deliberately manufactured to leave no paper trail. Many swing states, such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina and Arizona have Republican governors and secretaries of state who can easily flip the vote counts. It is well documented that this happened in Ohio in 2004, which resulted in George W. Bush Fraudulently gaining a second term, just as he fraudulently gained a first term in 2000.

Massachusetts

We have already seen the "flip and switch" scam in this year's primaries, and in all instances the results have been detrimental to Bernie Sanders. Despite the claim that Hillary Clinton "won" the Iowa and Nevada caucuses, there is clear and convincing evidence that Bernie was the real winner in both states. In Iowa. Clinton's supposed "victory" came down to six coin tosses, all of which she allegedly won, despite the odds of something like 11,000 to 1 of that actually occurring.

In Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders overwhelmingly won - by double digits - every single district that voted using paper ballots. He lost every single district that voted by electronic machine. It is simply unbelievable that such an outcome could be the result of honest vote counting.

It is time for citizens to demand that elections be conducted everywhere using only paper ballots, which would make vote flipping impossible. We need automatic voter registration, early voting everywhere, a restoration of the Voting Rights Act which was gutted by our right-wing Supreme Court, and we need to change election days from Tuesdays to Sundays to make it easier, not harder for people to vote. A recent study conducted by Harvard and the University of Sydney, Australia found that the United States had "the worst elections of any long-standing democracy." Out of 47 long-term democratic nations studied, the United States ranked 47th.

I am glad you are still sharing the truth of the elections with us Steve... but I have to say , It poses a very gloomy picture .
Unless there is a mighty intervention from God ...(who sees and knows all that is going on behind closed doors , and on internet, etc ) then the outcome of a fair and just result will be non existent .
I hope those who opposed the President of today will have life-belts securely on , as the ' waters could be very murky and turbulent ahead if they are not careful ... because...
If we sow the wind , we will reap the whirlwind .Hosea 8v7
Many blessings to you

Steve, your final words "out of 47 long-term democratic nations studied, the United States ranked 47th" says a lot but I believe that the state of our democracies across the world is also suffering badly - the problem being the gap between the representatives elected and the real needs of the people. Nothing is happening to fix that.

That's why it is so important that Bernie Sanders becomes president. He is the only politician who truly fights for the needs of the people.

You might also add the Illinois primary, where ballots ran out in five counties.

In India, electronic voting was introduced to replace paper ballot voting where there were huge cases of fraud and capture by force.
But seems like in United States technology is being misused.
