You probably caught at least some of the massive onslaught of articles online this week claiming that the State of Kentucky has banned Mike Lindell’s plan to have Wi-Fi sniffing devices set up at polling places in 2024. That was kind of upsetting. What does Kentucky have against monitoring elections to make sure they’re fair?
This story is the perfect example of what we are up against in 2024. The media has completely fabricated this story.
A little bit of background first.
Mike Lindell firmly believes, based on mountains of expert testimony from people who looked at the 2020 election, that foreign interference happened with the voting machines. There’s evidence that servers in Canada, Spain, and Communist China were all connecting to voting machines on election night for some reason.
This is despite the fact that everyone has tried to reassure the American voters repeatedly that these machines are not connected to the internet.
For the 2024 election, Lindell is recommending that private citizens in all 50 states purchase a Wi-Fi monitoring device. It really doesn’t work much differently from your cell phone. You turn it on around a voting center, and it will tell you where all the Wi-Fi signals are coming from. If anyone notices fishy signals from outside the US attaching to the machines, they can then immediately call election attorneys from the Trump campaign, their county sheriff’s office, election officials, and anyone else to help make a stink and put a stop to it.
All of a sudden there was an explosion of articles online this week claiming that Kentucky had banned these devices. Searching for “Kentucky Lindell Wi-Fi monitoring” returns 1.3 million hits on Google. Here’s a selection of headlines about this story.
Daily Beast: “Mike Lindell Wi-Fi Monitoring Devices Banned from Northern Kentucky Polls”
Daily Mail: “Mike Lindell’s $500 Wi-Fi monitoring devices are BANNED”
Newsweek: “Mike Lindell Suffers Blow in Election Battle”
WKYT: “Election Officials Crack Down on Voting Conspiracies”
Ground News: “Mike Lindell’s ‘Wi-Fi Detectors’ Banned from Polls in Kentucky”
NewsBreak: “Kentucky Rejects Mike Lindell’s Vote Monitoring Wi-Fi Devices”
Palmer Report: “This is Just Embarrassing for Mike Lindell”
Wow! That sounds pretty definitive. One of two things must have happened. Either the Kentucky General Assembly passed a bill banning the devices and the Governor signed it into law, or there was a landmark court ruling that decided the devices—which work almost exactly like your cellphone—are somehow illegal.
But that’s not what happened at all. The media is not only lying here but is actually making up fake news on a mass scale in order to meddle in the 2024 election.
Here’s what happened.
In Kenton County, Kentucky, the four-member board of directors “voted unanimously that poll workers will be told not to let people use the devices.”
That’s quite a bit different than having the General Assembly pass a bill and having the Governor sign it into law. Four people on one county election board, out of 120 counties in Kentucky, decided that poll workers will be told not to let people use election monitoring devices. That’s extremely different than having the machines “BANNED in Kentucky” as the entire media declared in unison.
Kenton County Clerk Gabrielle Summe is a particularly dishonest person on this matter. She has publicly declared that Wi-Fi monitoring devices, which are legal and are used to prevent hacking and corporate espionage all the time, are “particularly dangerous” because “they are small enough to sneak into the polls and could illegally identify voters.”
That’s an absolute lie. Gabrielle Summe should be recalled by the voters of Kenton County for spreading election misinformation. This technology can’t identify voters. That’s not what it does at all.
Summe said she’s not sure what the penalty would be for using one of these devices, but it is “probably” a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
Could you point us to that statute in Kentucky’s legal code, Ms. Summe? There is no such statute. It’s not illegal to monitor Wi-Fi signals in a public place in Kentucky, and probably not in any other state in the union. It’s completely absurd to claim that a piece of technology you can buy at Best Buy for about $500 is illegal to use.
What this really means is that for some strange reason, the board of elections in Kenton County—and the entire mainstream media—don’t want citizens to be able to monitor our elections in real time. They expect us to trust them after 2020 and take their word for it that our elections are safe and secure, when they are anything but.
