Israeli defense firm that tallies the Iowa caucus

The Israeli Defense Company
That Tallies the Iowa Caucus

By Christopher Bollyn

The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation's attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don't expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American "democratic" election process.


In the summer of 2004, I first learned that a foreign and out-of-state company using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology tallied the Iowa caucus results.

The system used to tally the 2004 Iowa caucus results was provided by a company called Voxeo, which was apparently based in Orlando, Florida. (Yellow flag goes up in the mind of those familiar with Orlando and electronic vote fraud history. See Bollyn article on Wang below.)

The calls from the nearly 2,000 caucus centers in Iowa went to a Voxeo call center in Atlanta, Georgia.

On January 31, 2005, I wrote to Michelle Bauer, Iowa's Secretary of State with some questions about the use of Voxeo, a foreign company located in Florida, to tally the results of the Iowa caucus:

Subject: How was the Iowa Caucus Tallied?

Dear Sirs,

When I visited the headquarters of the Democratic Party in Des Moines last summer, I learned that the tally of the Iowa caucus had been "out-sourced" to a company in Atlanta, Georgia.

What this means is that the tallying of the Iowa caucus results was done over the telephone, using the touch-tone buttons, to enter the results from each caucus location.

I am interested in how this was done, and why. Why did the Democratic Party allow the crucial tally of the caucus results to be done by a company in Atlanta? Don't they trust their own math skills?

Can any of you provide any information about this matter?

Kind regards,

Christopher Bollyn

A person named Mike Milligan wrote back on behalf of Secretary of State Bauer:

Mike Milligan wrote:

Dear Christopher:

The Secretary of State forwarded me the email you sent to then on Monday, January 31, 2004 [sic] regarding the Iowa Caucuses.

Unfortunately you either received some incorrect information in your travels or are confused. The Iowa Democratic Party completed all of the caucus night tabulations in Iowa, in the Des Moines/Polk County Convention Center, which was the Caucus night HQ. In fact, our tech staff wrote the software that tabulated the results.

To answer your second to last question, we feel we have a comfortable grasp of mathematics.



Mike Milligan, Executive Director
Iowa Democratic Party
(515) 244-7292 ex. 676

I wrote this note back to Mr. Milligan:

Dear Mr. Milligan,

I am responding to you about how the caucus results for the Iowa Democratic Party were tallied on the night of the nation's first caucus. After checking my sources, I can assure you that it is correct that an out-of-state telephone/computer system tallied the Iowa precinct results.

The system used was provided by Voxeo Corporation based in Orlando, Florida. The calls went from Iowa to a call center in Atlanta, Georgia.

See: http://www.voxeo.com/

This information was first provided to me last August by John McCormally, Communications Director for the Iowa Democratic Party in Des Moines, Iowa.

Today I called Voxeo (800) 305-5771 in Orlando and although I didn't go into detail, the receptionist confirmed that Voxeo had conducted the telephone tally of the Iowa Democratic Caucus results.

How is it that you don't know that?

McCormally told me that chairmen were selected in all 1,993 precincts and these chairmen called in on touch-tone phones and after giving their PIN number, were able to enter the results from their precinct using the touch-tone number pad.

I'm not going to go into great detail at this point, but this procedure of using an out-of-state computer company to tally the precinct results for the Iowa Democratic Caucus lacks the transparency and openness that one might expect in this exercise in grass-roots poll.

Clearly, if someone wanted to adjust the results, it would be the easiest thing to do to do it through this computer system in Orlando, Florida. The Democrats in Iowa would never be aware of it, regardless of their math skills, unless the paper results were carefully audited in an open and honest manner.

Now, who really is Voxeo, and why are the Iowa caucus results tallied by them? I don't know if the 2008 Iowa results will be tallied in the same way, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Voxeo is headed by Jonathan Taylor, who is the company's President and CEO. This is what his Voxeo webpage says about him:

Jonathan combined his experience in both business operations and technology innovation to found Voxeo in 1999. Under his guidance, Voxeo has seen triple-digit revenue growth for four consecutive years and has been profitable since January, 2004. Prior to Voxeo, Jonathan founded and helped bring three additional software and infrastructure service companies to profitability.

From 1995 to 1997, Jonathan was the founder and President of InterResearch and Development Group (IRdg), Inc. IRdg created and licensed iPost - the first internet powered OEM unified messaging solution - to leading telecommunications providers including Ericsson, Motorola and Unisys. IRdg was acquired by Elron Electronic Industries (Nasdq: ELRN) subsidiary MediaGate in 1997.

There you have it. Jonathan Taylor's company, which he founded, was taken over by Elron Electronic Industries, the Israeli defense high tech company:

In its early days, Elron focused on defense, particularly electronics and avionics, as well as the emerging medical and technology sectors. In 1966, Elron founded Elbit, which combined the expertise of the Ministry of Defense-Research Institute in special computer design with Elron's experience in electronic product design, manufacture and management.

This is important information that Americans need to know and which they will not find in the Zionist-controlled media in the United States. It needs to be understood that the entire election process in the United States is a fraud. More than that, it is a fraud that is being perpetrated by the Israeli defense establishment on the naïve and gullible American public.

The sine qua non of an honest and transparent election process is the open counting of the votes by the voters themselves in each polling station in front of the open eyes of other citizens and members of the media. Any compromise in this most fundamental and essential process which acts to remove the citizenry from the vote-counting process simply cannot be accepted.

This is what Americans MUST get back to, in every polling station in the nation: paper ballots that are hand counted in front of the public.

Nothing else will do to protect their democratic franchise in the United States - NOTHING.

You seem suprised....

Have a peek at this site: http://www.viewzone.com/dualcitizen.html

Go through the list of who's who in US gov. Now, the list on this site isn't current, but today's list is as equally ugly. Rahm Emanuel-Israeli, Tim Geithner-Israeli, Hank Paulson - Israeli, most at Goldman-Sachs....ad-nauseum.
Now, if you read my above comments and immediately think, "WOW!! That writer is sure anti-semitic!"...then, you've fallen victim to the mass-brainwashing too. That's exactly how "they" want you to react anytime you hear someone say the word "jew".

Of course you can trust the government....ask any Indian!!

The message is freedom not power.

Hold our elected officials accountable.

Everyone else is free to exercise their freedom.

If we successfully hold our elected officials accountable then others will stop trying to influence them, because there would be nothing to influence.

You sell people on freedom by selling freedom, not by demonizing the latest group of special interest. It will not work. You will be preaching power to defeat power. That will not get a freedom result.

Only my opinion.


What we need are machines

What we need are machines made in the USA or the more practical approach, return to all paper ballots.

Hell Zionist's Have Held Or Hold Alot Of The Top Post's

what is voip

This is just another way the neocons

cover themselves with teflon.......outsource to foreign, friendly (to their cause) contractors that can be told what to do. This is an outright sham, and I can't believe people stand for it.........but if legitimacy is not enforced at the polls, it doesn't matter........they'll have their winner. It's kind of like the joke:

We gave all our old voting machines to Pakistan last year, and in their new election, George Bush won again!

alan laney

I don't understand why a foreign owned company is counting our

votes in our election. I say this again we must protest this en mass
and force them to count the votes out in the open.

Yes you do but no one wants to say it

Israel's AIPAC and the Zionist movement in Israel are a larger threat to American sovereignty than all of our enemies combined. Speaking out about this isn't antisemitism either. It's about putting and end to this global domination movement by stealth.

The sad thing is we the people of America have less of a voice and representation in Washington than that of Israel. This has to change!! We have to put the oxygen mask on ourselves first and then consider the consequences of playing favorites like we do now with Israel.

12-30-07: New problems identified with Iowa caucuses!
This affects every one of you in the 49 states that are "not Iowa" because what happens in Iowa will play a major role in which presidential candidates you get to vote for.

Please distribute this to every single person you know in Iowa. Black Box Voting does not have many Iowa members, and needs your help to get this information where it needs to go.


Black Box Voting needs live IOWA CITIZEN REPORTS on Jan. 3. Note that the Iowa caucuses must allow observers and must allow both video and photography, as long as you do not disrupt the proceedings. You do not need to be a member of the party to observe or videotape (but you must be registered for that party if you want to participate in the caucus).

In some locations, there will be a Republican caucus AND a Democratic caucus in the same building, giving observers the opportunity to capture evidence in both parties' caucuses.

Below is an update on election integrity problems with both Republican and Democratic caucuses, in addition to info on how to find your local caucuses.


The Republicans are running such an opaque dog and pony show that, unless they correct procedural issues, citizens nationwide should demand that Iowa lose its "first in the nation" status. Here are the issues for Republican caucuses:

1) Black Box Voting has received unofficial reports that political operatives have urged citizens NOT to ask too many questions and NOT to take photos or video of precinct caucus results, warning them that only "conspiracy theorists" would want to independently confirm the announced results.

It is your DUTY as a citizen to oversee your governmental processes. Because Iowa caucus procedures lack basic checks and balances, such as posting the precinct caucus results at the precinct caucus location for the public to examine, it is actually very important for members of the public to take video and photographs and share them.

WHAT TO DO: If you see or hear anyone ridiculing, name calling, or implying that citizen oversight actions will cause "blowback" on their candidate, please REPORT THIS to Black Box Voting, via e-mail or online, live-time forum reports in the IOWA FORUMS section at Black Box Voting.

2) The Iowa Republicans have NOT publicly agreed to promptly release precinct results for the Jan. 3 caucus. Instead, we are seeing bait and switch tactics, as they emphasize to caucus participants that the counting will be done in public at the precinct. While they keep your eye focused on the front end, a switch can take place at the back end. When they release a total result to the media without releasing the individual precinct results at the same time, there is no way at all for citizens to confirm that their precinct results added up to the announced total.

Please CONTACT both the Iowa Republican Party and the Iowa Secretary of State to tell them you expect to see those precinct results published at the SAME time they announce the statewide total. Iowa Republican Party: (515) 282-8105 Iowa Secretary of State: 515-281-0145 515-281-7142 (Fax) sos@sos.state.ia.us

(But aren't caucuses "owned" by the parties and not the Secretary of State? It's like this: If Iowa wants to position itself as the first in the nation for caucuses, perhaps the ONLY possible influx of mass tourist dollars in January in Iowa, they need to run transparent caucuses with ...

True Elections, Privacy and Honest Media

I think we need to be very concerned about true elections, phone and internet privacy, and honest media. Israel and other nations would only benefit if we regain our freedoms here.

Sometimes people confuse being anti-israeli with being an anti-semite. I think the former is OK sometimes. This is one of those times.

What are they going to watch?

I don't quite understand how watching on the ground and at home will keep anyone from buying the election. Isn't the rumor that the machines are programmed to give a false report, and then they destroy whatever program was installed in them to control the result? How do you watch or even prove this?

Who Tallies the Iowa Caucus Results

How long has this been going on and under whose watch did this occur?


problem easily solved-www.votewatch.com


report the iowa caucus results ourselves. join now and report from the iowa caucuses or remotely from your computer.

this is a valid argument...

whats wrong with people....no one is blaming the people of Israel in this post...Its the Israeli establishment....Personally i am sick of people who say someone is anti semitic if they criticize Israel....If people are critical of Bush are they against America?....sick of this herd mentality and protection of Israel...
But more importantly its not who does it but what can we do to correct this....
I agree with the poster who talks of doing a volunteer based exit poll...I am sure a lot of people will be willing to volunteer ...its just the logistics that might be a tad problematic......

I suspect vote fraud is in the works

Israeli companies don't inspire confidence as their whole government is as corrupt as ours. Campaigns will have to establish national exit polling databases for their voters to maintain private tallies. The controlled media will not touch subjects as hot as vote fraud.

These videos need to go viral !!

Votefraud PART 5 of 5

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

entire election process is a fraud

its not who votes but who counts the votes..the vote counting has to be changed..as long as we let this continue,we will be spinning our wheels trying to get Ron Pauls elected & the republic restored..

randy n.

This may be a sulution to keep the vote true,

A friend was telling me about a dream that he had about his voting that he would be doing.

He said that as he came up to the voting place there was some well dressed men and woman that had a black locked box with a seal on it just out side of the voting place. He said as he came to vote they asked every one if they would like to take part in a exit poll. They gave every one a numbered paper ballot to fill out as they voted and asked them to drop it in the locked box on the way out. Having the ballots numbered they could tell how many of the voters took part in the exit poll. Also the box then would not be open but only if the count was in question and a recount is taking place.

This the box would only be open if there was a recount of the votes and then compare the exit poll with the count to see how close of a % it showed as to the real count.

It would take some people power to do this but it would seem that if we could get a 3rd party like "We The People" or "Black Box Voting" to sponsor the exit poll.

I think something like this may work to prevent vote fraud,
if done at every voting place.
Ron in Redding CA.


I have been doing some Door to Door and I think from the correspondence that I have been getting that there are a great number of people that would give there time to do something like this in every voting center. All that would have to be done is run a ad in some of the papers and this should be printed free as a community service and also you should be able to get some free air time for this also.

Wake up people! This is not anti-semitism

This article is not saying that all Jews are bad people! WAKE UP Ron Paul supporters, this is how they, I mean the MAN is gonna SCREW your messiah, Ron Paul, big time.

Don't get into argument about anti-semitism here. Israel has been known to screw us to further their skewed agenda at times, through ADL and AIPAC. If you still have cries of anti-semitism in your head, yup, it is true. The MSM has implanted that in your damn head.

No one hates Jews. Similar to bad Muslims like Al-Qaeda, there are extremist jews. This one is really bad news for Ron Paul. The author himself has been harrased big time by the system. Are you RP supporters gonna run now or fight?

This revolution is worldwide. If America fails, God help us all

Do we need to shed the love in the revolution? We have been screwed big time in New Hampshire.

Why would Ron Paul be any different?

Don't worry our Ron Paul has prolly already agreed to this? In the last election it came out that all candidates had to agree to this type of crap. Why would Ron Paul be any different?

Is it time to wake up about Ron Paul? Has he done anything to stop this?

The last post of this nature was deleted, will this one be? Where does Ron Paul stand on this?

OK...SO...What do we Do??

Who can we sound the alarm to? How do we keep an eye on the ongoings? Listen, if these "criminals" realize that we are shining a big bright light on them, they will think twice about cheating.

So, again, I ask, any ideas for a game plan for this. And BTW, great investigative work!

machines counting votes... where's the ROI?

less shocking than outsourcing to an israeli company is outsourcing a human task to a machine...

Why pay for metal machines when you can find protein machines to do it for FREE?

i don't see why everyone who wants to can't count votes, just pass paper ballots down a line of concerned parties to tally. this whole vote counting machines and computerized voting systems are clearly provide no ROI.
