There's been a lot of talk about the presidential election and some are asserting there was fraud. Here's what you need to know about the claims.

What are Hammer and Scorecard? Election fraud – or fake news

In the aftermath of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, chaos erupted on both ends of the political spectrum. On one side, Democrats & left-wing voters are cheering in elation over the election of Joe Biden, while on the other, some Republicans and right-wing pundits are questioning the validity of the election results announced in a unified chorus by legacy media outlets. 

Following Trump’s slew of angry post-election tweets from these past few days, many of his fellow allies & loyal supporters have joined him in calling out apparent election fraud. Since Trump’s legal team filed lawsuits in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia swing states that ended up securing Biden’s win – accusations of election fraud have since intensified.

Some Trump supporters meanwhile are bringing up the Hammer and Scorecard election systems, claiming they were used to change & fake votes for former Vice President Joe Biden. Many media outlets traced these accusations back to former intelligence contractor Dennis Montgomery, who supposedly invented this software himself.

Who is Dennis Montgomery?

Dennis Montgomery’s track record doesn’t seem to bode very well for his credibility. An article featured in Playboy reveals a long history of his outlandish claims surrounding politics. Montgomery’s even been called “the man who conned the Pentagon”. 

Montgomery’s most notable con started with the 9/11 terror attacks. He convinced the government that he invented software to help the CIA get inside of Al Qaeda’s computer systems. This led to CIA employees moving into his headquarters in Nevada and the government even paying his companies at least $20 million.

However, the story eventually proved to be a hoax when French officials debunked his technology, leading to Montgomery’s immediate drop from the case. Former employees have also released stories of Montgomery faking tests for U.S. military officials, and his former lawyer Michael J. Flynn has even called him a “con artist” and a “habitual liar engaged in fraud”. 

Since then, Montgomery has been accused of lying about his software, and has even been charged in Nevada for writing bad checks worth $1.8 million at casinos in 2011. While he’s been quiet following these recent claims, an article by The American Report states the Scorecard software invented by Montgomery was hijacked by the Obama administration to win the 2012 presidential election.

A brief explanation of Hammer & Scorecard

On the Two Mikes podcast episode 33, retired U.S. Air Force Lt. General Thomas McInerney explained how he believes Montgomery’s technology works: Democrats or “powers above them” are cheating in the current presidential election using Montgomery’s Hammer & Scorecard, which were created with CIA assistance before being privatized under the Obama Administration. 

McInerney explained the Hammer, or THE HAMMER, is a surveillance program used for counterintelligence designed to spy on protected networks like voting machines – without being detected. Scorecard is a program that can alter votes as they transfer from voting stations to data storage hubs. 

McInerney further claims the voting manipulation used by these technologies is kept under 3% to avoid detection. Given Biden’s wins in key swing states like Michigan & Wisconsin were under 3%, conspiracy theorists would find McInerney’s assertions believable. However, are these assertions credible, or is it a case of confirmation bias? 

Have these claims been proven true or debunked yet?   

Head of the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs has since tweeted the theory that Hammer & Scorecard were used to taint the 2020 U.S. presidential election is “nonsense”. While thousands of tweets on the subject are posted every minute, Twitter has been cracking down on them, censoring even more content on their platform and taking the mantle as an authority on what is “disinformation”.

Hammer & Scorecard theories have been pushed to the limelight in American right-wing politics. Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon promoted this narrative on his podcast, and Sidney Powell mentioned Hammer & Scorecard during recent appearances on Fox News.

On Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs Tonight, Powell declared, “I think there are any number of things [authorities] need to investigate, including the likelihood that three percent of the vote total was changed in the pre-election voting ballots that were collected digitally by using the Hammer program and a software program called Scorecard.”

Because this theory is still continuing to be spread around like wildfire, we truly doubt this will be the last time we hear of the words “Scorecard”, “Hammer”, and “election fraud”. What do you think? Let us know below.

  • It probably is an Alex Jones level conspiracy theory I am more worried about twitter cracking down on what they see as disinformation will also turn into then censoring views they don’t agree with. Like the internet thought police.

  • 200,000 ballots in Pennsylvania all for Biden with no lower election races, Just Biden …200,000 ! Sure 200,000 voters were so excited for Biden that was the only race ? No senators or congressmen No legislature Choices .? On200,000 ballots ? Come on man

  • I seen on video from cnn that seen the numbers get changed in a vote for a democratic and republican

  • Watch Hacking Democracy (2006) documentary. The idea of electronic voting fraud was not invented by Trump or the right. Democrats suspected that this existed after the 2004 presidential election. Democrats also suspected that the 2016 election was also hacked in some way.

    This is what some people really fear. That our election system has been compromised for a long time, which questions the validity of past election outcomes. The historical implications are disturbing. How many presidents, senators, representatives, governors and mayors were duly elected, or not? Were legitimate leaders or not?

    This is not an easy issue to face, but we have to. It isn’t just crazy Trump supporters who question the integrity of our election system.

    Could it be that some people just can’t accept losing?.. Of course… At minimum there has to be more clarity, scrutiny and transparency. Joseph Stalin was attributed as saying, “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.” Whether it was really Stalin who said that or not is beside the point. It is a very true statement regardless of its origin.

    Here’s an idea. Auditable votes, or votes with receipts. Don’t our elections deserve at least as much security as our store purchases?.. Some would say that would compromise privacy. It doesn’t have to, and if you have voted, and an election is being disputed, you would want to make sure your vote was counted, and not thrown away or flipped for some other candidate you don’t support.

    If in the November 2020 election you voted for Biden, Trump or somebody else, you wouldn’t mind some possible loss of privacy to make sure your vote went to the candidate that you wanted it to go to. We’ve long accepted some loss of privacy for less important things. Democracy is more important.

    Measures can be taken to protect voters from discrimination because the community might find out who one voted for. Most people respect one’s right to vote for whoever they want. Most people just don’t care who you voted for. And it may only become publicly known in close disputed elections, but it doesn’t have to go public, or be published publicly.

    Privacy can still be maintained. It doesn’t have to be an either-or choice, but if it is, our democratic republic is more important.

    • Michael,
      I agree with your comments and suggestions. I called the elections department where I live and asked how I would be able to confirm that my vote was counted towards the candidates that I actually voted for. The election official’s reply was that as soon as the ballots are separated from the envelopes (signature verification) then the vote becomes “anonymous” due to confidentiality issues. And my next question was, “anonymity for whom?” I am the one that is casting my vote and have the right to know that my vote was not tampered with and was counted for the candidates that I voted for. I asked the voting official about the ballot for “in person” voting before being loaded into “the counting machine” and he gave me the same answer. He told me that “there is no way to know which ballot is your’s and the machine does the counting. So, I can surmise from this that the machines are making the decisions….that does not make me feel comfortable that my vote was counted appropriately. I am in full support of receiving a receipt after the voting process as you stated….I would have peace of mind that my right to vote had not been compromised in any way. It’s all about transparency and the democracy of the right to vote for whom I choose. If everything with the election process was “up to snuff”….then why are the election officials and the “powers that be” not willing to provide the evidence that no fraudulent or illegal processes have or are occurring during this election?

  • It’s highly doubtful that The Hammer was used domestically to gain undetected access to voting counts. With the tech advancements since Montgomery’s alleged design and construction the need for using a supercomputer is probably no longer.
    However, when factoring in all the peculiar behavior that so many Americans witnessed on election night coupled with the “stop Trump at all costs” narrative one would almost expect to see voter fraud en masse. If the software codes were, say for instance, sold to a wealthy Dem donor the need for Hammer could be eliminated. I do believe that bad actors employed a software at least similar to scorecard in certain battleground states. The results upon further scrutiny may prove the actual use of such software but tying it to an individual or a group and / or proving intent will be very difficult. Although determining who is behind this subversive action would be satisfying it takes a backseat to the need of the nation as whole to have confidence in the election results from this election and future elections as well. Hand count all ballots in front of representatives of both partys, certify the results and put the actual winner into the Whitehouse for the next four years.

    • Dale Lange… hand count the ballots? Hand count 150 million ballots, that’s your plan to prove a desperate conspiracy theory based on zero evidence?

      If it took a maximum of 1 minute for two party representatives and a non-partisan 3rd party person to agree upon a tabulate each vote, it would take… 7.5 MILLION man-hours to count all the votes. You’d have to have to find about 25,000 people whose full time job for the next 2 months would be to count votes. If you paid them $10/hr (average poll worker pay), it would cost $75 million. Who’s going to pay for that? Just add it on to taxes? Doesn’t sound too republican to me. Every American should be on the hook for a massive spending operation just so we can prove that a conspiracy theory was indeed actually just a conspiracy theory?

      What happens when the results of that massive process show that yep, the state-of-the-art encryption and technology used in voting systems was indeed right and Biden won? By that point you’re a week away from inauguration, how to you come up with another bogus theory in time to keep Trump in office? Are you planning a coup?

      When you think you might sound like the crazy person in the room… it’s because you are. Biden won. It wasn’t even particularly close. Get over it.

      • Pete, more than 2 billion $ were spent on the election what the hell is 75 million to get the truth and save democratic freedoms and election integrity?

        November 20, 2020
  • Why isn’t Dennis Montgomery in Jail ? Also, do we have access through FOIA to all his testimonies ??

    November 10, 2020
    • I do see your point. However, unless my math is incorrect, 150,000,000 votes at 1 minute each (divide by 60 minutes in an hour) = 2,500,000 hours needed. If 25,000 people were employed to count, it would take them 100 hours to count all ballots (2,500,000/25,000). 100 hours divided by a standard 40-hour week= 2.5 weeks to count all votes by hand. At $10/hour, that’s $25 million—which I believe is approx $7 million less than the Russian Collusion hoax against President Trump cost American taxpayers. Which no one benefitted from.

      • Amy, you’re 100% correct, we need actual ballot verification! If that method is what we need to revert to? By all means do it! I’ll volunteer. That guy is sweating $75 million? Chump change for the truth. Here in California we spent $25.3 Billion yes with a B on Illegal Immigrants THIS YEAR!
        You want our entire country to look like CA? But worse? No thanks.

  • There is a lot more to the story that is not being spoken. Would people believe the words of a French Official that knows nothing about it? Here is the real story that people are not being told much about. President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper and his Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director John Brennan oversaw a secret supercomputer system known as “THE HAMMER,” according to former NSA/CIA contractor-turned whistleblower Dennis Montgomery.

    Clapper and Brennan were using the supercomputer system to conduct illegal and unconstitutional government data harvesting and wiretapping. THE HAMMER was installed on federal property in Fort Washington, Maryland at a complex which some speculate is a secret CIA and NSA operation operating at a US Naval facility.

    That system, THE HAMMER, according to the audio tapes, accessed the phone calls, emails and bank accounts of millions of ordinary Americans.

    The tapes also reveal that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court (FISA), Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, 156 other judges, members of Congress, and Donald J. Trump were targeted by the HAMMER.

    One of the audio tapes made public by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow revealed that Brennan and Clapper particularly targeted and wiretapped Donald Trump a “zillion times.”

    Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, currently Special Counsel in the Russia investigation, provided FBI computers to a secret CIA/NSA surveillance program that was launched in 2004. That program morphed into a domestic surveillance program that spied on Donald Trump and his associates since 2010.

    This is according to former CIA/NSA/DIA subcontractor-turned-whistleblower Dennis Montgomery and his attorney Larry Klayman. Also, Michael Thomas Flynn a retired United States Army Lieutenant General also knew about the “HAMMER” whom also turned whistleblower thus the reason he was wrongfully accused of making false statements to the FBI followed the law and prior precedents. This was all researched by U.S. Air Force (Retired) Mary Fanning.

  • Respectfully… there is no need to recount all 150M votes. The presidential election is decided by the electoral vote, not by the popular vote. The states that are deep red & blue are well-known, so only need to focus on the ‘battleground/swing states’. That cuts the 150M down considerably.

    Then, further reduce the recounts by a simple recounting of the votes by hand (with designated unbiased counters and appointed observers from both sides) in the states where there are reported cases of irregularities, fraud, etc. Thus far, there have been reports in MI, AZ, GA, NV, PA, WI, NC, etc. So, only recounting between 7-10 states.

    Most of the counters & observers (and many campaign workers) were/are volunteers = they are working for free/not getting paid. So, there is no need to spend millions of dollars. Considering the stakes, surely there would be volunteers or organizations from both sides willing to fund personnel for the recounts.

    Also, the 2020 presidential election is alot closer than one might think…votes between candidates in states where Biden currently leading –
    AZ – 12K
    GA – 13K
    WI – 20K
    NV – 35K
    PA – 50K

    State where Trump currently leading –
    NC – 70K

    There have also been reports of cases in MI – 140K votes between candidates.

    Thus, in AZ, GA, WI, NV, & PA…there are currently only 130K votes between candidates. That is a razor thin lead which could determine the president for the next 4 years considering the total votes for Trump & Biden currently total almost 150M (not including votes for other candidates like Jo Jorgensen, etc.).

    In summary, simply recount the ballots by hand in the contested states with observers from both sides, calculate the electoral votes, and then declare a winner.

    Considering the U.S. has been bogged down with allegations that Russia influenced the 2016 election, this should reassure both sides that the 2020 election was fair.

    All the best.

    • All of that is done originally…many polling officials and people representative from both parties so this Hammer thing again is another way to stop Biden from becoming President…if this conspiracy is true then why didn’t the Democrats MAKE SURE THEY TOOK THE SENATE! So all it is is a bunch of baloney…and intelligent, educated people should know better…because no one would set themself up to have to fight Congress for 4 years to get their work done…it’s just common sense…

      November 13, 2020
  • Happy to help count or recount for free. No need to pay me as I just want it accurate and fair. Bring this matter to a definitive closure.
