"After the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, with the continuous development of political and economic reform, all kinds of election activities will become more and more a norm.
We have a senior professional team that has been engaged in election service and management for a long time, and we have the experience of overseas election internship and exchange.
We can provide the most professional election consulting service and election activity solutions for all places and levels of Party committees, NPCs, CPPCCs, trade unions, overseas Chinese Federation, women's federations, Communist Youth League; villages, towns, streets, communities and units that have the need for election and evaluation of priorities.”
“On a now-deleted website for the Chinese election company, Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co., the statement above was written by Eugene Yu, the Founder & CEO of Konnech Inc., a U.S. election company based out of East Lansing, Michigan.

Yu, who graduated from Zhejiang University in 1982 before receiving his MBA from Wake Forest University in 1988, founded Michigan’s Konnech Inc. on March 20, 2002, registering the domain “www.konnech.com” one month later.

Eugene Yu at the 2014 National Association of Secretaries of State Conference
On November 29, 2005, the Michigan CEO whose Chinese name is Jianwei Yu (于建伟), founded his Chinese election company Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co. in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China.

On February 25, 2006, Yu registered the website “www.yu-lian.cn” for his Chinese election company to his American election company’s email address “eyu@konnech.com”.

In a 2013 archived version of his Chinese website, Yu praised the vision of the former Chinese President “Comrade Jiang Zemin” as he wrote in Chinese:

“After a lot of practice and many years of scientific and technological investment, in line with the principle of "political tasks first and economic benefits of enterprises second", our company has perfected and formed the whole set of election management theory and software tools in line with China's national conditions.”
“We hope to ride on the spring breeze of political reform and provide you with election consulting services and election campaign management in line with China's national conditions based on our democratic election campaigns with Chinese characteristics.”

On a website page labeled “Success Stories”, Yu listed in Chinese; “Election Management Solutions, Detroit”, “Election Volunteer Management System”, “Election District Point Management System”, “Election Warehouse Management System”, and lastly, “US Overseas Voter Election Management System”, a program in which he managed voting for U.S. citizens and military service members residing overseas.

My investigation into Eugene Yu and Konnech Inc. began two weeks ago after Catherine Englebrecht of TrueTheVote and Gregg Phillips of OPSEC organized an event on Saturday, August 13th in Arizona called “the Pit”.

During that event, they revealed that they had been part of a year-long investigation into Konnech with federal law enforcement after discovering a Konnech server’s IP address switched locations between Zhejiang, China, and Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Independent tech journalist, Cognitive Carbon, who attended the Arizona event wrote:

“What they found was shocking: they found data that included personal details of nearly 1.8 million US poll workers. Details like their names, phone numbers, addresses, etc. Even the names of family members: things that might routinely be collected when you hire someone and issue them a paycheck.
But they also reportedly found rich details about where election machines were located, including floorplans of buildings used in elections. Nominally, this information would be of use by the election agencies, because the application they were using helped them track their election machine inventory.
But none of this should have been left out in the open for just anyone to see; and it sure as hell shouldn’t have been done in China."
In my own investigation, I was able to use Linkedin profiles, Facebook posts, domain registrations, internet archives, company patents, and Chinese search engines among other open-source tools to string together a disturbing connection between Konnech Inc.and two Chinese election companies — Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co., Ltd. and Jinhua Hongzheng Technology Co., Ltd.

Subsequently, I wrote about the connections between these companies and their two founders — Eugene Yu and Lin Yu — in three articles and numerous social mediaposts over the last two weeks.


These articles document how Konnech Inc. has been hiring Chinese coders for their “branch in Jinhua, Zhejiang” since at least 2005, how the American company built a “communication platform” for the Confucius Institute in 2006, how Australian Parliament Members complained about Konnech’s Chinese coders during their 2020 election, and how one of the Chinese companies named Hongzheng Technology — after being founded by Lin Yu on April 13, 2015, and registered to Eugene Yu’s Michigan website on July 31, 2015 — has been building voting technology for China's National People's Congress in partnership with Lenovo, Huawei, China Unicom, China Telecom, and China Mobile.



https://web.archive.org/web/20220901202006/https://viewdns.info/reversewhois/?q=admin@konnech.com


In May 2022, China’s National People’s Congress in Zhejiang province voted using tablets and software built by Eugene Yu’s and Lin Yu’s www.hongzhengtech.cn.
Yesterday, an independent journalist named, Digger Sleuth — who published this monumental article on August 16th which laid the foundation for my Chinese research — discovered the archived version of Eugene Yu’s “www.yu-lian.cn”.

Incredibly, in the copyright featured at the bottom, Eugene Yu mixed an American site he registered "reddatesoft.com" with Lin Yu’s Chinese company “Jinhua Red Date Software Co.” on his Chinese election company’s website "www.yu-lian.cn" which was registered to his American election company’s email address “eyu@konnech.com”.

Perfectly linking a voting technology company currently used in Australia, Canada, and the United States — through Konnech Inc., Eugene Yu, Yulian Network Co., Lin Yu, Red Date Software Co., and Hongzheng Technology Co. — to a Chinese Communist Party election company partnered with China’s largest telecom giants in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China.





https://web.archive.org/web/20130718125224/http://yu-lian.cn/
To summarize, Eugene Yu registered the Yulian Network business under his Chinese name Jianwei Yu.

The Hongzheng Technology business, an election company partnered with Lenovo, Huawei, China Unicom, China Mobile, China Telecom, and China’s National People’s Congress was registered to Lin Yu.

The websites for Yulian Network and Hongzheng Technology were both registered to Eugene Yu’s Konnech email addresses, "eyu@konnech.com" and “admin@konnech.com”.

Lin Yu worked as a supervisor for Eugene Yu at Yulian Network from 2014 until 2019.

Furthermore, Lin Yu’s Jinhua Red Date Software Co. was prominently featured on the footer of Eugene Yu’s Chinese election website “www.yu-lian.cn”.

On “www.yu-lian.cn”, the Michigan CEO openly praised “Comrade Jiang Zemin” and the “Chinese Communist Party” stating that his company’s principle is “political tasks first and economic benefits of enterprises second” before listing “Election Management Solutions, Detroit” and “US Overseas Voters” as his "Success Stories".

Incredibly, despite all of this information sitting on the internet, Eugene Yu still currently provides voting technology at the heart of elections to Australia, Canada, and the United States.

What’s more, according to Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips, the FBI’s Washington D.C. office is now attempting to cover up this national security crisis, rather than investigating why Chinese nationals partnered with Chinese telecom giants are programming U.S. election software.”

Interview with Greg where he goes into more detail:
CCP infiltration + election theft + FBI coverup = our current clown world


"In a live chat released on Monday, Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips, appeared together on “truethevote.locals.com” to discuss their 15-month involvement with what was characterized to them as a “counter-intelligence operation” with the Federal Bureau of Investigation into American election company Konnech Inc.

Konnech, which is based out of East Lansing, Michigan, builds software to manage the poll workers, poll locations, campaigns, assets, and supplies necessary to run elections in the United States, Canada, and Australia.

In January 2021, Phillips said that the cyber analyst he had been working with encountered an “oddity in some of the URLs” such as vote4la.com, vote4detroit.com, and vote4boston.com, which Konnech’s “PollChief” software application used to gather personally-identifying information about poll workers.

Using Binary Edge, a software product companies use to identify and assess the risk of cyber breaches, “We began to look at where do these URLs actually resolve to. We found that most of them resolve to one IP address and that IP address — the URL resolved in China,” Phillips said.

“What we also learned in our review, apps.konnech.com [.net], resolved into this same URL in China, meaning that the application itself was residing in China,” he continued.

“In Binary Edge, you can figure out what type of database they are using, their database port, and all the different services offered by ports in this particular application living in China. It turned out that not only did it live there, but they left the database open.”

This database “stored the personally identifying information of over a million Americans,” he emphasized.

Engelbrecht and Phillips decided that “this was a major national security risk” and immediately took the information to the FBI.



In 2005, Eugene Yu, the Founder of Konnech Inc., whose Chinese name is Jianwei Yu, founded a Chinese election company named Jinhua Yulian Network Technology Co. in Jinhua City, Zhejiang Province, China. On February 25, 2006, Yu registered the website “yu-lian.cn” for his Chinese election company to his American election company’s email address “eyu@konnech.com”. In a 2013 archived version of the website, Yu praised “Comrade Jiang Zemin” and the “Chinese Communist Party” before listing “Election Management Solutions, Detroit” and “US Overseas Voters” as his "Success Stories". Source: https://web.archive.org/web/2022090...tory.whoisxmlapi.com/lookup-report/ax5DgQQp26

On July 31, 2015, Eugene Yu registered the website “hongzhengtech.cn” for a Chinese election company named Jinhua Hongzheng Technology Co. to his American election company’s email address “admin@konnech.com”. Hongzheng Technology builds voting equipment and software for China's National People's Congress in partnership with Lenovo, Huawei, China Unicom, China Telecom, and China Mobile. Source: https://web.archive.org/web/20220901202006/https://viewdns.info/reversewhois/?q=admin@konnech.com

In May 2022, China’s National People’s Congress in Zhejiang province voted using tablets and software built by Eugene Yu’s www.hongzhengtech.cn. Hongzheng Technology, which has more than 200 employees and offices in Zhejiang, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, and Wuhan, builds voting technology and mobile applications for China’s National People’s Congress in more than twenty provinces across China, according to their website.

When Engelbrecht and Phillips took this information to the FBI, the FBI “said the information was forwarded to their counter-intelligence operation, and a counter-intelligence op was opened up in January or February of 2021,” Phillips said.

Phillips described how he and Engelbrecht played an active role in the FBI’s operation, “They engaged us in the operation, they were communicating with us on a regular basis. They were communicating with Catherine regarding communications with the target and this went on for approximately 15 months.”

Phillips and Engelbrecht noted that the field office that they worked with for those 15 months was “legitimate” and not “political law enforcement.”

“These were legitimate people who believed that this software posed a national security risk to the United States of America and they were working with us closely to try to stop this from being in place during the midterms,” Phillips said.

“The focus point was always we needed to remove this software from the election, but taking a step further, there were a lot of other concerns that the bureau had.”

The FBI agents indicated that Konnech had already “been on their radar” and that there were “lots of other problems” with the U.S. election company including “banking issues” and problems involving the company’s overseas operations in “Australia” and “Canada”.

In April 2022, Engelbrecht received a call from one of the FBI agents, who informed her that the FBI’s “Washington D.C. headquarters” was now involved in the investigation.

Engelbrecht described how everything changed after this call, “There was no more goodwill, there was no more let's work together, the script had been flipped, and now we were the target,” she said. “That was a very disturbing call.”

The agent informed Engelbrecht that “two women” at the FBI’s headquarters believed that Phillips and Engelbrecht were “in the wrong for doing this” and that the D.C. office was now trying “to figure out how you guys broke the law to find all of this”.

Engelbrecht added, “which of course we didn't, but that was kind of their MO [modus operandi], they were going to try to pin something on us, and today you can pick your headlines about how the FBI has done this time and again.”

Phillips remarked, “The problem is they know about this and they chose to do nothing. They chose to investigate it and in the end, they chose to blame us, but this is China. These are Chinese operatives in the United States, these are Chinese citizens who are programming this.”

Engelbrecht and Phillips, who have worked in the election industry for a combined fifty years, described how this was a “complete and total failure” of federal law enforcement, U.S. intelligence, and the Department of Homeland Security which is primarily responsible for the “critical infrastructure” making up the U.S. election system.

“In fact, the president of this company sits on the board of another election company that is one of the founding members of DHS's election security task force. So you want to talk about the fox in the hen house? It's all right there,” Engelbrecht noted about Konnech CEO Eugene Yu’s membership on Votem Corp.’s Board of Advisors.

Furthermore, Phillips added, “The same individual who programmed this election mess, PollChief, was also the lead programmer for the Confucius Institute internal comms [communication] mechanism.”

“Meaning how they exchange data between here and China, this same person built the entire app that runs all of these elections across the United States. This is a red Chinese communist op run against the United States by Chinese operatives and it's a disaster.”

Engelbrecht explained how the FBI agents initially hoped they could persuade the Washington D.C. office to do the right thing, “Our contacts were saying we are going to try and smooth this out, but as the days clicked on, they re-contacted us and one of them said you may need to be ready to — his term was to use the nuclear option and go to the press,” she said.

“And that is when we began to plan the Pit.”

With the FBI no longer interested in pursuing Konnech, Englebrecht and Phillips organized an event for Saturday, August 13th in Arizona called “the Pit” where they brought together about two hundred “researchers, independent journalists, and big thinkers” to share their story with.

“We asked the people in attendance for help, we didn't know what the FBI's plans were for us, we didn't know if we didn't speak this publicly if we would ever have the chance to, but we felt like our best chance was to share this with people we trusted who had the wherewithal to get the word out,” Englebrecht said.

She continued, “There have been so many great things that have happened since that event, but one of the greatest, was this community that came out shoulder to shoulder saying let’s dig this, let's see how much more information we can find.”

“The quality of research that has been done to supplement what we already had and to corroborate what we already had has been incredible.”

Phillips added, “This is some of the best research I have ever seen. The quality of it, the depth of it, we were with a prosecutor the other day and we had an opportunity to share some of this information with them.”

He continued, “There's likely going to be a grand jury convened here in the next week or so. It's supported by not just the research that my team OPSEC did for Catherine and True the Vote, but it's supported by the research of one of the best research teams that I've ever seen come together.”

“The data and research all stand on their own.”

Englebrecht concluded that Eugene Yu and the Konnech story is far from over and will continue to get stratospherically bigger."

Engelbrecht and Phillips, who have worked in the election industry for a combined fifty years, described how this was a “complete and total failure” of federal law enforcement, U.S. intelligence, and the Department of Homeland Security which is primarily responsible for the “critical infrastructure” making up the U.S. election system.

“In fact, the president of this company sits on the board of another election company that is one of the founding members of DHS's election security task force. So you want to talk about the fox in the hen house? It's all right there,” Engelbrecht noted about Konnech CEO Eugene Yu’s membership on Votem Corp.’s Board of Advisors.

Furthermore, Phillips added, “The same individual who programmed this election mess, PollChief, was also the lead programmer for the Confucius Institute internal comms [communication] mechanism.”

“Meaning how they exchange data between here and China, this same person built the entire app that runs all of these elections across the United States. This is a red Chinese communist op run against the United States by Chinese operatives and it's a disaster.”

Engelbrecht explained how the FBI agents initially hoped they could persuade the Washington D.C. office to do the right thing, “Our contacts were saying we are going to try and smooth this out, but as the days clicked on, they re-contacted us and one of them said you may need to be ready to — his term was to use the nuclear option and go to the press,” she said.

“And that is when we began to plan the Pit.”



In December 2006, Konnech built a “communication platform” for the Confucius Institute at Michigan State University according to the company’s Facebook. Source: Facebook

Shao Guojun, who built Konnech’s system architecture between 2006 and 2015, went on to become a "Senior Architect" at Huawei, where he worked on the Chinese telecom giant's “cloud platform architecture”. Many of Konnech’s employees, including CEO Eugene Yu, graduated from Chinese universities such as Zhejiang University, Suzhou University, Nanjing University, University of Science and Technology of China, and HuaZhong University of Science and Technology.

Shao Guojun, is a co-inventor on a 2012 patent with Eugene Yu and Konnech Inc. Guojun is also a co-inventor on this 2015 patent transferred from “Jinhua Konnech Inc.” to “Hongzheng Technology”. After spending eight years programming Konnech’s system architecture, Guojun went on to work for Hongzheng Technology partner and Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

With the FBI no longer interested in pursuing Konnech, Englebrecht and Phillips organized an event for Saturday, August 13th in Arizona called “the Pit” where they brought together about two hundred “researchers, independent journalists, and big thinkers” to share their story with.

“We asked the people in attendance for help, we didn't know what the FBI's plans were for us, we didn't know if we didn't speak this publicly if we would ever have the chance to, but we felt like our best chance was to share this with people we trusted who had the wherewithal to get the word out,” Englebrecht said.

She continued, “There have been so many great things that have happened since that event, but one of the greatest, was this community that came out shoulder to shoulder saying let’s dig this, let's see how much more information we can find.”

“The quality of research that has been done to supplement what we already had and to corroborate what we already had has been incredible.”

Phillips added, “This is some of the best research I have ever seen. The quality of it, the depth of it, we were with a prosecutor the other day and we had an opportunity to share some of this information with them.”

He continued, “There's likely going to be a grand jury convened here in the next week or so. It's supported by not just the research that my team OPSEC did for Catherine and True the Vote, but it's supported by the research of one of the best research teams that I've ever seen come together.”

“The data and research all stand on their own.”

Englebrecht concluded that Eugene Yu and the Konnech story is far from over and will continue to get stratospherically bigger."
This is how the msm and their “fact check” type media companies cover up the truth. They don’t dig in to the allegation and instead try to attack and smear the messengers.

How a historical documentation of Konnech effortlessly turned into a numbing portrait of a crippled United States national security apparatus.

And our own New York Times armed them with sword and shield. What else would you expect from the paper that published Adolph Hitler's propaganda?
