2000 Mules: D’Souza’s Film About Ballot Harvesting in 2020 Election

2000 Mules

Directed by Dinesh D’Souza (2021)[1]

Film Review

This is a fascinating documentary. Unlike other documentaries about the 2020 election (focusing mainly on statistical irregularities), its main focus is an investigation into smartphone geotracking data identifying individuals who visited  multiple privately funded absentee ballot drop boxes prior to election day. True the Vote spent $2 million to buy this publicly available cellphone data.

According to True the Vote, 300,000 apps collect geotracking data on smartphone users and sell it to advertisers and intelligence and law enforcement agencies.[2] The voter intelligence specialist they hired found 242 so-called “mules” who (according to their cellphone GPS data) visited more than 10 drop boxes in a single day. True the Vote identified a total of 242 individuals who deposited ballots in an average of 24 drop boxes over two weeks.

True the Vote believes this behavior was part of a ballot harvesting scheme aimed at swinging the vote to Biden in important swing states. According to a second investigator specializing in ballot harvesting, a ballot harvester collects absentee ballots in a number of ways. These include visiting college dorms and nursing homes receiving large numbers of unclaimed ballots, targeting Hispanic communities where elderly voters are pressured to hand over their absentee ballots and researching voter rolls for dead voters or those who haven’t voted in 10 years.

One aspect that wasn’t totally clear was how the mules defeated the signature verification requirement in Arizona, which was one of the swing states investigated. Arizona is one of 27 states verifying the signature on the ballot envelop with drivers licenses and other state records. In these states, entering the bar code on the ballot envelope calls up the voter’s name, driver’s license and voter registration). See How States Verify Absentee Ballots

According to whistleblowers, various non-profit agencies paid mules $10 per ballot for each of the 3-10 ballots they delivered to each drop box. It’s illegal in 23 states to submit an absentee ballot for anyone other than a family member. According to D’Souza, it’s illegal in all 50 states to pay someone to submit an absentee ballot on behalf of a third person.

True the Vote also collected four million minutes of drop box video surveillance (through official information requests) to match their geotracking data with images of mules stuffing ballots into drop boxes.

For me the main weaknesses of the film were

  1. failing to clarify how the mules circumvented the signature verification requirements in Arizona,
  2. failing to highlight that vote fraud is a bipartisan problem, by referencing the extensive research into computer voting machine fraud during the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections (see How Rigged Voting Machines are Stealing Our Elections),[3]
  3. suggesting (without clear evidence) that numerous 501 (c) 3 organizations (funded by Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, Warren Buffet and VISA) violated IRS regulations by providing funding to pay ballot mules (while it’s well-documented these groups funded drop boxes and voter registration campaigns, neither, in itself is illegal), and
  4. failing to explore the likelihood of US intelligence involvement in this ballot harvesting scheme, especially given Zuckerberg’s and Soros’s longstanding links to the CIA, as well geotracking data identifying several of the ballot mules as engaging in criminal violence during ANTIFA and Black Lives Matters protests.[4]

[1] In 2018, Trump pardoned D’Souza who had pleaded guilty to 2014 campaign finance law violations.

[2] I was astonished to learn that all the January 6 protestors the FBI arrested were already being geotracked, which was how the FBI identified them so quickly. The CDC also purchased this geotracking data to track millions of Americans during the pandemic (see Senators Johnson Demands CDC Explain Why It Tracked Movements of Americans During the Pandemic)

[3] By minimizing Republican vote rigging, D’Souza effectively pigeonholes this issue as a “conservative” issue, when it should be of major concern to all Americans across the political spectrum.

[4] Many of whom were later identified as government infiltrators and provocateurs.

We Are Legion: The History of Anonymous

 

We Are Legion: The Story of the Hactivists

Brian Knappenberger (2012)

Film Review

We are Legion traces the early history of Anonymous, the vast leaderless international hactivist community, back to geeky pranksters from MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Model Railroad Club. After branching out to form the Cult of the Dead Cow, they would morph into 4Chan, a website where anonymous – mainly adolescent users – go out of their way to post the most repulsive and/or obscene images and text they could think of.

The fact that most 4Chan posts bear the screen name “Anonymous” would inspire a group of 4Channers to formally take that name in 2006-2007. Their first politically motivated prank was directed attack against Neo-Nazi talk show host Hal Turner. In addition to shutting down his website through a DoS* attack, they charged massive amounts of pizza and industrial supplies to be sent to his address. On learning he was an FBI informant (by hacking into his emails), the widely disseminated this information to his right wing supporters.

By January 2008 when they took on the Church of Scientology (after the Scientology lawyers threatened them for disseminated an unflattering video of Tom Cruise promoting Scientology), they had transitioned from pranksters into a virtual online army.

In addition to repeatedly DoS-ing the Scientology website and tying up their hotline, they staged their first street protest in February 2008 – with more than 10,000 Anonymous members picketing Scientology offices in every major city. It was these protests that first popularized the Guy Fawkes mask originating from the V for Vendetta graphic novel and film.

In 2010 they launched Operation Payback to disable Mastercard, Visa and PayPal websites, after Wikileaks published Bradley Manning’s damning emails and videos about US atrocities in Iraq and the four companies suspended Wikileaks online payment services.

In 2011 Anonymous members provided third party website, dial-up and encryption services and text-based Twitter feeds for activists in Tunisia, Egypt and other Arab Spring countries.

It was around this time the FBI began investigating Anonymous – resulting in the arrest of the Anonymous 16 for taking down the PayPal website. Several of the arrestees are featured in the documentary as they prepare to go to trial. Owing the amorphous and leaderless nature of the network, the arrest of dozens of Anonymous activists  seems to have done little to curtail their activists.


*A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) is a cyber attack where perpetrators seek to make a website  unavailable by temporarily or indefinitely disrupting services. It’s typically accomplished by flooding the targeted website with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload its systems.
