Conference de presse du 19/11
Sydney Powell en francais
Si c'est vrai, *c'est du lourd !*
Oui, ça commence très fort avec « l'influence massive de capitaux
Sidney Powell: (38:02)
Thank you Rudy. What we are really dealing with here and uncovering more
by the day is the massive influence of communist money through
Venezuela, Cuba, and likely China in the interference with our elections
here in the United States.
Oui, ce sont biens des pays communistes, et Dominion / Smartmatic /
Sequoia est lié au Venezuela.
Article qui a 9 ans :
The Miami Herald reported on Friday May 28, 2004 [F2 EDITION]:
"A large and powerful investor in the software company that will design
electronic ballots and record votes for Venezuela's new and much
criticized election system is the Venezuelan government itself...
Venezuela's investment in Bizta Corp., the ballot software firm, gives
the government 28 percent ownership of the company it will use to help
deliver voting results in future elections, including the possible
recall referendum against President Hugo Chavez, according to records
obtained by The Herald... Until a year ago, the Bizta Corp. was a
struggling Venezuelan software company with barely a sales deal to its
name, records show. Then, the Venezuelan government -- through a venture
capital fund -- invested about $200,000 and bought 28 percent of it".
Three companies will build and execute Venezuela's new touch-screen
voting system. Two are incorporated in Florida, though neither does most
of its business here. Smartmatic Corp., which will build the machines,
incorporated in Florida in 2000 and lists its world headquarters at 6400
Congress Ave. in Boca Raton. Its president is Antonio Mugica Rivero, 30,
and its vice president is Alfredo Anzola, 30.
Bizta Corp.,which will
provide software for the new machines, incorporated in Florida in 2001,
and lists its address as 19591 Dinner Key Dr., Boca Raton, a residential
property owned by Mugica's father. Mugica is listed as president, and
Anzola is vice president, according to Florida records. Venezuelan
records, however, indicate Anzola is president. In Caracas, Bizta shares
its office with Smartmatic.
CANTV, Venezuela's publicly held phone
company, will provide phone lines to connect the system and election day
technical support. It would have been part of any voting system selected
for the elections contract.
The findings of Orlando Ochoa did not end in a Caracas registry though.
Recently he wrote for Quinto Dia another article, carrying the title of
this paragraph, in which he commented upon the recent acquisition of
Sequoia Voting Systems for an undisclosed amount. "With the combination
of Sequoia and Smartmatic, both proven innovators with accomplished
track records in either the U.S. or abroad, we are creating the first
truly global leader in providing voter-verified electronic voting
solutions," said Jack Blaine, President, Smartmatic . Furthermore,
after analyzing the minutes of a meeting held in Chicago between Cook
County and Chicago's city officials with the board of Sequoia, that
remained in charge after the take over, and that of Smartmatic ,
Ochoa noted that unknown Venezuelan investors, operating via proxy
European ventures, could indeed be the controlling power behind Smartmatic.
Sequoia Voting Systems was the e-voting branch of De La Rue PLC, the
"world 's largest commercial security printer and papermaker" . De La
Rue's 2005 preliminary statement reports the sale to Smartmatic thus:
"following the strategic review in December 2004, we announced our
intention to exit the business ( added: of voting systems) by the year
end and this was done through the sale of the business to Smartmatic
Corporation, a US based device networking and election systems company.
The business had revenues of £23.1m (2003/2004 : £44.2m) and made an
operating loss of £0.2m in the year (2003/2004 : £(1.9)m)" [8, page 8].
Page 5 cites "During the second half, we also successfully completed the
sale of the Sequoia Voting Systems business for a consideration of £8.7m
(US$16m) resulting in an exceptional gain of £6.0m".
Following Ochoa's lead, I searched the registry of the Amsterdam Chamber
of Commerce, which contains details of a venture trading under the name
Smartmatic International Holding B.V., incorporated, under a different
name, on March 18th 1.985. Its registered address is Naritaweg 165
Telestone 8, 1043BW Amsterdam. The company activities are described as
"to purchase, develop and manage property and goods" . The sole
shareholder of the holding is Amola Investments N.V., which in turn was
incorporated in the registry of the Chamber of Commerce of Curaçao,
under number 91615. A search for Amola Investments N.V. in the register
of Curaçao's Chamber of Commerce returns no results. However the
incorporation number does exist in the register, containing not
information related to Amola Investments N.V. but to another company by
the name of Smartmatic International Group N.V. . Curaçao
Corporation Company N.V. , Netherlands Antilles Corporation Company
N.V.  and Roger Alejandro Piñate Martinez -Vice President, Special
Operations of Smartmatic Corporation - are the three listed
statutory and managing directors of the group. Ochoa indicated that an
entry in the minutes of the meeting aforementioned describes Cook
County's Commissioner Peter Silvestri  asking to representatives of
Sequoia/Smartmatic " who owns Sequoia?" The answer came from Honorable
David Orr : "Smartmatic International, which is owned by a Dutch
company, owns Sequoia Voting Systems. Some key investors of the said
Dutch company are Venezuelans". On May 26th 2005 Cook County's Election
Department informed that Sequoia was the winner of the bidding process
for electronic voting equipment .
The Amsterdam registry shows that Smartmatic International Holding
B.V.'s managing director is Trust International Management (T.I.M.)
B.V.. Both companies operate from the same address. According to the
register the website of T.I.M. B.V is http://citco.com . Citco Group
is quoted in Hedge Funds World as "the world's largest hedge fund
administrator" , that until very recently was controlled by
Switzerland's Sandoz Foundation . However Citco has informed that
"an investor group including the Smeets Family Trust, Citco managers,
and friends of the firm has acquired a controlling interest in Citco
from the Sandoz Family Foundation" .
