‘HOMELAND SECURITY TO TAKE CHARGE OF ELECTIONS’
by The Doc
August 31, 2016

Why does the Department of Homeland Security all of a sudden want to oversee security for the election in November? Just a little while ago I checked the Drudge Report, and I was greeted by the following headline all in red: “HOMELAND SECURITY TO TAKE CHARGE OF ELECTIONS”. I was immediately alarmed, because I had already heard about how local election databases had been hacked, and Donald Trump has expressed concern that the presidential election in November could be rigged somehow. So I immediately clicked on the link and it took me to an article from the Washington Examiner…

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 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.
I would definitely agree with Johnson that our election system is critical infrastructure.

Unfortunately, I believe that is a legitimate question.

Readout of Secretary Johnson’s Call with State Election Officials on Cybersecurity
Release Date: August 15, 2016

Today, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson hosted a phone call with members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and other Chief Election Officials to discuss the cybersecurity of the election infrastructure. It is critically important to continue to work to ensure the security and resilience of our electoral infrastructure, particularly as the risk environment evolves. Representatives from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, the Department of Commerce’s National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) also participated in the call.

During today’s call, Secretary Johnson offered assistance in helping state officials manage risks to voting systems in each state’s jurisdiction. While DHS is not aware of any specific or credible cybersecurity threats relating to the upcoming general election systems, Secretary Johnson reiterated that DHS, the Election Assistance Commission, NIST, and DOJ are available to offer support and assistance in protecting against cyber attacks. He also recognized the important work already being done in the states to ensure the integrity and security of the nation’s elections. Secretary Johnson further emphasized that DHS is exploring all ways to deliver more support to the sector in a collaborative and non-prescriptive manner, and would be examining whether designating certain electoral systems as critical infrastructure would be an effective way to offer this support.

As part of the ongoing effort, the Secretary also announced that DHS is convening a Voting Infrastructure Cybersecurity Action Campaign with experts from all levels of government and the private sector to raise awareness of cybersecurity risks potentially affecting voting infrastructure and promote the security and resilience of the electoral process. Representatives of the National Association of Secretaries of State were invited to join this group to provide their expertise and input.

Secretary Johnson encouraged state officials to focus on implementing existing recommendations from NIST and the EAC on securing election infrastructure, such as ensuring that electronic voting machines are not connected to the internet while voting is taking place.

Secretary Johnson offered the assistance of the Department’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) to conduct vulnerability scans, provide actionable information, and access to other tools and resources for improving cybersecurity.

This is a MAJOR problem along with release of internet domain oversight to be wholly controlled by ICANN(some say UN), continued censorship, and ramped up repercussions for those against Hillary or Obama.  All of those things have been ongoing for months just not this blatantly.

    Sorry for the cliche, but there is nothing like the fox guarding the hen house.

    • Uriel says:

      Lol Peppermint so true. Every day we move one step closer to totalitarian government. It’s disgusting how congress is Allowing this especially the senate who is charged with impeachment of such presidents.

      • Peppermint says:

        Uriel, I think we are under a dictatorship already. And yeah, I’m really ticked off at Congress for doing NOTHING. This puts them in collusion with O Hussein Obama.
        He should have been impeached a long time ago.

        • Uriel says:

          Couldn’t add a thing to that rant. I agree 100%. Congress more than O has sold us down this river all for a slice of the pie at the table.

    So…two of the local election databases have been supposedly hacked? 2 out of 9000+….. then the DHS is called in.

    Sounds like the socialists want total control of all those databases…..

    I ask…what could possibly go wrong with this, eh?

    Those databases are a list of eligible voters are they not? Can’t you just see that the Dems want control of them so they can put all their dead folks on them who vote democrat…or add the names of illegal immigrants…er….undocumented workers….. or ISIS sympathizers……

    • Uriel says:

      Oh think much larger BlessedB. Think all the way to setting up a Western Stares Union. Along with your little dough boy and Mexico’s president. Obama would be salivating over that one I am sure.

      • Uriel says:

        Lol State not stares but it works if we sit and do nothing.

      • Blessed B says:

        The only problem would be Turd-boy’s narcissism …..he won’t give up power to the USA or Mexico. I can’t see that happening. The USA would have to try to invade and take over.

        • Uriel says:

          Agreed. But if you watch any news releases between the three you might notice they look to him and defer to him already. So I would think he is already in that position.

          • Blessed B. says:

            Perhaps…though I find it hard to think that they would give total power over to the turd from Canada.

            • Uriel says:

              Neither do I. At least not without a power struggle. Obama has over 8 years attempted to represent himself as king in the UN. I have to wonder though given his actions if They see him the same way as He has figured.

  4. Hardnox says:

    The purview of the elections is under the States not the feds. The governors need to tell Obama to STFU.

  5. jim28foreman says:

    You can compare Obama’s Homeland Security with the Hitler’s SS Troops. It was formed by Obama, answers to not one other than him and operates outside the constitution and any laws passed by congress.

  6. vonmesser says:

    Maybe we could get the UN to oversee the elections? Lol.

  7. Thomas Leahy says:

    Remember in 2008, obama said he wanted a domestic force equal to the military? By reducing the military, buying huge amounts of ammo for domestic agents and trying to federalism elections an October surprise may be coming

    • Uriel says:

      Thomas. Welcome to Hardnox. Yes he has deliberately bankrupted our country in order to subjugate on the financial front. He, Reid, and Pelosi communists in deed pushed Obamacare through as much for the hidden aspects as the supposed health of citizens. They have drained our military, armed his private army and pushed disarming citizens with the ultimate goal of takeover. Yet even though a few in congress objected strenuously they were labeled troublemakers and obstructions. I didn’t know about the EPA reducing gun powder and bullet manufacturing until it was noted yesterday. so yes you are right.

  8. Uriel says:

    It is alarming but entirely part of a communist manifesto to attack on religion, history, education, finances, food, freedom, and voting fronts. Liberals who are backing these takeovers (any party) deserve to be stripped of citizenship and treason charges need to be rendered.

  9. Wetzel says:

    Recently I received and email giving the names and offices of Muslims in our government. Giving control of the election to Jeh Johnson and all of Obama’s appointee buddies is like giving a drunk charge of the bar. And we should trust him? Is this partly why Obama has said more than once that Trump will never be president? They will do anything to fulfill that evil prophecy. This will be our last chance…

    • Blessed B. says:

      I think you are correct Wetzel….this will be America’s last chance to get it together. If Hillary wins….Americans may not get the chance to vote again for a very long time!

      • Uriel says:

        At least not without a tremendous effort and spilled blood. BlessedB. When we combine communists, socialists, wacky liberals, BLM, Panthers, refugee fighters. Taking back our country will be difficult for sure.

    • Uriel says:

      Hi Wetzel. Welcome to Hardnox. Supposedly Johnson was converted to Islam in the last 3-5years. It would make a lot of sense considering he rose to the position thanks to Obama in about the same timeframe. All of us here believe like you. We either float or drown on this election. I am sure every Muslim brotherhood member in congress and every position of government across the country is sweating bullets over Trump.

      • Uriel says:

        The list is quite extensive if you consider how many liberal and Muslims Obama has appointed to all levels of judgeship in the last 8 years as well as many in high level classified positions across all agencies under the executive branch.
