Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections

by Paul Bedard | Washington Examiner  |  published on August 31, 2016


Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a “critical infrastructure,” giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials.

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

    Let Homeland Security take charge of the election, well that is a hands down win for the Democrats even before the election. That is like putting the fox in charge of keeping track of the chicken coop.

    It’s amazing how the Obama administration is no longer trusted by the American people. If they tell you they’re going to “protect’ the critical infrastructure involving the election, that’s pretty much code for they’re going to manipulate the outcome. We all know that King Obama understands what’s best for the people, as we’re not smart enough to make decisions for ourselves.

  • Glenn

    Do we the people TRUST even Homeland NOW? Congress has a great support of 14%, which is high at this time. It is time for the STATES to take back their power that they granted to the Feds.

    • ItsJo

      NO we don’t Trust Another Obama ‘Regime Agency Owing to HIM’

  • ItsJo

    Obama etal, used to claim that having “Voter ID’s Discriminates against the people……….Really, that’s bs, as NOT Every Person voting has access to this electronic computer voting-another trick they tried to float. Now, they want to have DHS take over, when States have done their OWN counting……do they think people are stupid? This is their “latest SCAM to Control the OUTCOME and Every person with a brain, KNOWS IT. Nice Try by these thugs.

    Call me skeptical, but this reeks of Obama/Soros/Hillary plans to ‘Control this election by DHS, to INSURE a Democrat Win. This crooked regime has shown time and time again, that IT Cannot be trusted, and it seems quite curious that the FBI is NOW talking about cyber attacks and DHS steps in with Jeh taking over the balloting counts? NO WAY, this doesn’t STINK to high heaven, as Obama uses these agencies to do what HE WANTS.

    With Voter ID’s(that Obama/Holder sued to STOP) AND Paper Balloting, would solve this problem, so perhaps they waited 70+days out, to say: “There isn’t enough time to do ID’s OR paper ballots……..Well, there IS TIME, AND THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO INSURE AN HONEST ELECTION, BUT THEN AGAIN, THEY MUST CHEAT TO WIN IN DEM CIRCLES.

    IT CAN BE STARTED NOW, AS PRINTING BALLOTS IS MORE HONEST, THAN ELECTRONIC VOTING ANYWAY, JUST LIKE THE CO. THAT SOROS OWNED SCYTL WHERE VOTES FOR ROMNEY WENT TO OBAMA….THEY CLAIMED IT WAS AN “ISOLATED ERROR”…….HAPPENED TOO MANY TIMES TO BE SO, AND THEY KNOW IT AND SO DO THE AMERICAN VOTERS.

    Paper balots. Problem solved.

    • Bob

      Except for voter fraud, which the Just-Us department says is not a problem even though their candidate got more than 100% of the vote in several FL and OH districts.
