In Stunning Last Minute Power Grab, Obama Designates Election Systems As "Critical Infrastructure"

Image result for obama power hungry memeIn 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.

We have been O bombed again!!!

I have three words , FRAUD AND USURPER ! 

Maybe "Obama nation"?

Well, Oren, I will ask you again, now what are your feeling for this Unconstitutional President Executive Power Act...?

 Convention Of States must put this to rest, and bring the authority of the 50 States under We The People again. Because after Trump, the WHAT IF ? when Trump 4 or 8 years are up, and the DNC take office, and the swamp is not drained....?

 They will use this Unconstitutional Act and undo all Trump has accomplished.

This posting by Dee, she should of looked around and interfaced the full story, its not only a threat, but a possibility a civil war is looming.

  Take your time and read the full story, of what the elite is up to.

BOMBSHELL: OBAMA/DHS PREPARING TO OVERTURN TRUMP ELECTION<-: http://teapartyorg.ning.com/forum/topics/bombshell-obama-dhs-prepar...

Hank, while a presidential effort by President Trump to undo many of the illegal and unconstitutional EOs and other acts by Mr. (intentional) Obama would be a good start, Oren and I have made it clear the only way to once again bind the federal government with the chains of the Constitution short of a revolution is an Article V Convention in which the States would limit the power of the Executive Branch and the Courts when it comes to attempting to write laws.

A very good amendment proposal can be found at DownsizeDC.org called the Write the Bills Act. It'd prevent Congress from shirking it's duty to write the actual details of laws by transferring that to the president or numerous alphabet soup agencies. They have several other proposals such as the One Subject at a Time, Read the Bills, and Enumerated Powers Acts. One benefit might be shorter bills, unlike like the thousand plus pages of the ACA.

They also support a Term Limits Act, which I'd extend to all federal judges including the SCOTUS, and a Balanced Budget Act.

So please go to DownsizeDC.org and tell us what you think might be apropos.

Ok, Oren I save your Pdf, and I will look at it again what you have done, different, and you do know that our team does support your efforts but at the same time, what is offered is not clarified, it will be rejected.

 And the reasons will be shared with you.

Article V Of The Constitution, by Convention Of States, all other measures may and can be challenged and shut down.

 Now so some will understand, my dad ordered all emails from social network terminated, call it a security measure, so Hank will not see your reply unless he checks into this network.

 Ok, Oren I will look over all the replies.

Roberto,

 There is not one thing in Convention Of States that limits the Courts, a matter a fact COS is to limit the Federal Government from controlling the Courts, placing them self above the laws of America.

SEDITION!!

Ruth, that's a very good term to use rather than treason. This regime is trying to undermine, if not overthrow what's left of a constitutional Republic.

Of course this regime has committed acts of treason as narrowly defined in the Constitution.

Thanks.

what a freaking loser...the worst prez i have ever seen....that is some legacy folks

well he maybe sitting up a last minute grab to not leave office.   I sure hope everyone is still preparing and ready for the worse case scenario.   Remember Trump still has to be inaugurated and then has to live in order to get things done, I am afraid neither are a sure thing at this point,

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
