BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
In a stunning last minute power grab by the Obama administration with just 14 days left in his Presidency, the Department of Homeland Security released a statement this evening officially declaring state election systems to be "critical infrastructure." The statement from DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson defines "election infrastructure" as "storage facilities, polling places, centralized vote tabulations locations, voter registration databases, voting machines" and all "other systems" to manage the election process...so pretty much everything.
I have determined that election infrastructure in this country should be designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector. Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law.
I have reached this determination so that election infrastructure will, on a more formal and enduring basis, be a priority for cybersecurity assistance and protections that the Department of Homeland Security provides to a range of private and public sector entities. By “election infrastructure,” we mean storage facilities, polling places, and centralized vote tabulations locations used to support the election process, and information and communications technology to include voter registration databases, voting machines, and other systems to manage the election process and report and display results on behalf of state and local governments.
Of course, it's likely not a coincidence that the DHS made this announcement just hours after the "intelligence community" declassified their "Russian Hacking" propaganda which basically noted that RT has a very effective social media distribution platform while once again providing absolutely no actual evidence.
How about the other way around for obeezlbub, what makes that creature so invulnerable...!!?
Which that the Government can control every aspect of the system. Making it easier to cover up the fraud from the democreaps.
the best way to put it is he need to be in Jail period
that's good PHILIP
Remember, those of us in the Tea Party Movement still want to restore the Republic to one under the rule of true Constitutional Law. While we want a strong patriotic leader, we don't want a despotic one.
the next four year will be critical for Donald Trump and I believe this time it's not going to businesses as usual
Trumps eating their lunch... Really... Just what real political headway has Donald made.. His appointments are being effectively stalled, McConnell has promised the Dem's that they will be able to have ALL OF THEIR QUESTIONS ANSWERED... and he has not attempted to expedite Trumps appointments. His appointments are being held up... why if we are in charge?
The political narrative certainly is not being controlled by Trump or the GOP... the Dems are getting 3-1 air time and the GOP seems reluctant to use their Constitutional powers to reign in the onslaught. The GOP leadership continues to talk bi-partisanship, as if it existed, or is a working solution to government reform. They have failed to articulate a cohesive plan to REPLACE Obama Care... something critical to a sound start this legislative session. Hell they can't even take a COP Hatting painting down, without having to put it back and apologize.. and the GOP runs Congress? Give me a brake.
Let's hope this turns around quickly.
First... any delay in appointments will set back Trumps inititive and invite further delays.
Next, the political narrative is how public opinion is brought to bare on political actions... and is important to the overall advancement of ones political agenda.
I have no doubt that most if not all of Trumps appointees will eventually be approved... however at what political cost?
Words have meaning and power... and the more a lie is repeated the greater its impact... Allowing the opposition to frame the debate is half of the problem with advancing the conservative cause in America.
