For the half of the nation that has not yet voted for their presidential nominee yet, go check your state’s registry and ensure your right to vote, because the registry has been hacked.
Both my wife and I have had our registered party erased from record before our state primary has taken place, and we have other confirmed sources coming forward as well.
If you declared as a Republican or a Democrat when you registered to vote, then Google your state’s primary, like this, and see if you are still registered for your party.
If you are in New York you can look it up here: https://voterlookup.elections.state.ny.us/votersearch.aspx.
Reports are coming in that many have had their political party records erased, hacked, before the vote in presidential primaries in New York and elsewhere in the USA have taken place.
If you are not registered as a member of the party you wish to vote for, online, in their system, then they will NOT allow you to vote in the presidential primary.
Forget parties. I will not mention a candidate in this article. You should be able to vote if you want to.
I do not care who you want to vote for, or what party you are affiliated with, if you want to vote in your party’s primary, please check online to make sure you have not been erased in the wake of massive hacks of the digital databases.
We all have a right to vote and take part in this great democracy of the USA.
We get to choose who represents us in government with a fair election.
And when voter turnout is up, better candidates are, historically, voted in.
Somehow the hack has targeted individual's status as being registered for a party, regardless of their prior designation and declaration when they registered to vote.
You can try and change this blank party status back to your chosen party by going to your local DMV web site, or you can call your county of residence.
My 15-year allegiance to my party has been erased days after the due date to declare that party in my state’s primary. My wife’s party has disappeared from her record too.
We are both ineligible to vote, as it stands by record, despite us both ensuring we were still registered to vote weeks ago.
We will fight.
We will call and hound our way back into the system to vote for our candidate, as is our right.
We are determined. You should be too.
Make sure you can vote.
The new digital age has spawned an all-digital voting system that can be manipulated and hacked.
On the wake of a huge November election, where not just the new President of the United States is to be decided but also 88% of the Congress (you know, all those people you have been pissed at for somewhere between 2-8 years, or more), voters are not being counted because of fraudulent and criminal activity that has affected our voter registry.
Now friends across social media forums are spreading the word and calling their local county offices and trying to regain their right to vote for their registered parties.
And this comes out on the same day that the “U.S. indicts Iranians for hacking dozens of banks, New York dam” proved to be impactful.
That’s right, folks, DDOS attacks took down numerous bank systems and a dam in New York today.
If your faith in the digital is stalwart, you have to admit the digital world is becoming more disconcerting as we depend on it more and more.
And these cyber attacks, though surely not planned, are proving to be a great distraction from disappearing voter registry records.
Just days ago, over a million Arizona voters found they could not vote for their candidate in the primary, because their registered party records were not visible online; they were not allowed to vote. This includes Americans who have voted in many primaries for the same party, over decades, and those who were new to voting for primaries alike. There might be different results than what has been reported for Arizona.
Is Arizona a conspiracy theory? Who knows? The truth might be stranger. Regardless, people are losing their ability to vote in the primary.
Do not let this happen to you.
There is still time for the half of the nation that has not yet had their primaries.
Corruption has plagued electronic voting registers and machines since their inception (history tells us that corporations can buy votes, literally and legally, by purchasing voting machine companies, in the US), but now something more insidious has risen.
Personally, I am shocked the media has not covered this yet, but maybe the cases in New York have just started to come out.
Please spread the word on all social media platforms and by analog methods, the old ways, by word of mouth: check your voter registration and ensure you can vote.
We must be proactive and vigilant.
We must be allowed to have our voice heard.
Last night as I listened in horror to my Stony Brook Seawolves getting shellacked in their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance, I wrote a piece that I felt was important to address my last book and it is titled: "THE CYBERPUNK BODY HACKING GRINDERS IN CYBERWAR."
This first appeared on the book's web site Cyberwarseries.com as the night grew old.
But here it is in full Eager Readers:
My latest book is a thriller and it is science fiction, but it is also known as what is called a genre smasher, and so I felt it was time to address the cyberpunk body hacking grinders in Cyberwar.
I hate labels, but sometimes they are necessity when it comes to easily finding information.
Without the fantastically fun sub-genre of speculative fiction known as ‘Cyberpunk’, it would be pretty damn hard to find new books that I like that in some way loosely resemble the technologically gritty woes of imagined futures or worlds or realities brought to us in stories like Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (the neighbors will have your balls if your robotic sheep proves to be impersonating a real one) or William Gibson’s unparalleled Neuromancer.
It occurs to me, right now, as the horrid commercials blare their noise at my back, while I eagerly await my Alma Mater’s first entry into the March Madness Tournament, that my book has been marketed wrong.
That is, to say, Cyberwar meets the expectations for a sci-fi thriller, but that is far short of the whole picture.
Marketing is more important than I like to acknowledge.
So let’s talk cyberpunk and grinding!
If delving into the book offers up some more insight for Eager Readers that might take an interest in its vast world, who am I to deny them that.
I wrote the damn thing, so I hope you will not mind if I make an edit to expand its description – late in the game, I know – to hit on some of the nuanced and highly researched aspects that go beyond computing technology, political revolution, and cyber warfare.
A lot of the research I put into robotics crossed over into humanoid bots, AI (artificial intelligence), and then further into android-like devices and a merging of man and machine.
The birth of the cyborg is old news.
Chipsets placed in the brain to allow for electrical impulses and thought to go wireless is tech currently being tested for human beings.
Successful cybernetic prosthetics are allowing people with artificial limbs to control their new hands and legs with nerve interaction and thought.
This is today and this is yesterday.
And this is the public news published in scientific journals.
Below the surface, the unaccepted, and often widely innovative grinders, or body hackers, are starting a movement that many feel is the next step in the human evolutionary ladder: that of the cyborg.
Grinders will place glowing chips beneath the skin of their hands to allow them a bio-chip coded to their own DNA that is the grinder’s method for waiving a hand and paying for an item, or accessing health metrics.
Some grinders are even plugging parts of their brains into physical electronic interfaces that give them abilities beyond the traditional senses.
This is the case with Neil Harbisson, a colorblind artist from Barcelona, who persuaded a doctor to implant a camera in the back of his head so that the antenna can detect the dominant color in front of him and translate it into musical notes so he is aware of the color.
He considers himself a ‘cybernetic organism’ and no longer identifies as a human.
Harbisson co-founded the Cyborg Foundation to advocate for cyborg rights.
The doctor that performed Harbisson’s surgery did so only after many other surgeons refused, and only under the condition of remaining anonymous.
Grinders are pushing the boundaries of the human-cyborg relationship all over the world, often at great personal risk of their own health.
The future of Cyberwar is torn in two.
Fifty percent of the population consider the cyborg way of life a right and have permanently altered some part of their body; many of these body hackers have cybernetic eyes that replace one of their own functioning eyes with an infrared and thermal imaging device.
The other half of the world populous remain steadfast in what they deem their birthright: the right to have no mechanized or electronic device, forced into their bodies.
This is a conflict that is ongoing in the Cyberwar Series.
Localized EMP’s can kill those with complex electronics in their skulls, but the government, in the Cyber United States in particular, is slowly pushing toward everyone getting their own bio-chipset to use for electronic currency, eliminating all cash, and all of the “off-the-books” transactions that accompany physical currency (there is more of this in my next book, which is coming soon!).
The main characters are haunted by cybernetics!
Grinding and androids and brash new futures are at the heart of cyberpunk, and I am proud to say Cyberwar has plenty of that in its gut as well.
