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.
WISE words Philip...., couldn't agree more....!!
LMBO!!! Dumb fool can't let go. Fortunately he is NOT king and PEOTUS Trump can overturn this piece of madness.
Watch the documentaries from the 20-30's. Hitlers rise. Destroy education. Create hate of one race over another. Destroy self sufficiency. Destroy businesses. Farming. Churches. Freedom of speech. Books. Geo Soros plays Hitler. With the same destruction. Seems the Brown shirts have Dems stamped on their backs.
And the really BAD thing is that the Democraps think the GOP are the haters.
" OBAMA'S DIVIDED AMERICA....., FIRST HAND......!! IN WRITING....!! : ( "
This behavior from the libtards is quite the gift that keeps giving. Its like they stand in quick sand and never realize it. Without any contention over this kind of takeover they just give the republicans yet another means to win the next election cycle. With less means to hide their ballot box stuffing and cramming the voting roles with as many dead, illegals, and favorite pets as they can, the will continue to lose.
I am terrified that this piece of crap is STILL going to declare Martial Law before Trump is sworn in.
and that's the reason why I believe Donald Trump should make Obama, Hillary go to court and put them in jail because if he doesn't do that he is going to have a hard time in the office
Sessions was very sensible to recuse himself. Sessions declined to vote for himself, which means 1 less GOP vote.The margin to get Sessions approved is pretty thin and if he said he would not recuse himself, how can we be sure that some RINO senators would not abstain or vote against him, because they are more concerned about getting re-elected? Let Sessions get into the AG chair, then he can select a good Deputy to be the public face of the Clinton investigation. Sessions will still be the boss of DOJ, and the one calling the shots.
Exactly... and that is what must happen if we are to restore law and order along with confidence in our government.
