We have Breaking news from the Washington Examiner concerning the election that may shape and rig the system for election day and potentially give the election to Hillary.
Here is the 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 and the electric power grid.
The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials…
…DHS has a vital security role in 16 areas of critical infrastructure and they provide a model for what the department and Johnson could have in mind for the election.
DHS describes it this way on their website: “There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.”
A White House policy directive adds, “The federal government also has a responsibility to strengthen the security and resilience of its own critical infrastructure, for the continuity of national essential functions, and to organize itself to partner effectively with and add value to the security and resilience efforts of critical infrastructure owners and operators.”
At the time, Johnson did not mention specific security issues, but the FBI has since cited one hack and another attempt.
If you don’t know or have forgotten, The FBI had detected a Hack on 2 state voting systems by “Russian” hackers, which took place in Arizona and Illinois.
What we can see is that the supposed attack on these computer infrastructures show that the attack was likely a false flag.
This article from USA Today popped out on August 3rd:
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Wednesday the federal government should consider designating the U.S. election process as “critical infrastructure” to give the voting system greater protection against cyber attacks.
Johnson made the comment in response to a reporter’s question about whether electronic voting machines are vulnerable to hackers in November’s presidential and congressional elections. There are more than 9,000 state, county and city jurisdictions that collect and tally votes throughout the nation.
“We are actively thinking about election cybersecurity right now,” Johnson told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
If the voting system was designated as critical infrastructure, it would allow the Department of Homeland Security to strengthen protections for the election process and make it a bigger priority, Johnson said. The secretary plays a central role in deciding what public and private sectors should receive the designation.
Some States are taking a stand against it:
Two swing states, Pennsylvania and Georgia, are declining an offer from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to scan their voting systems ahead of the 2016 elections.
In August, DHS offered to help states thwart potential hacking amid cybersecurity concerns about just how easily a U.S. election could be manipulated.
Georgia and Pennsylvania, however, have opted out. Instead, the two states will rely on their own systems to monitor potential election hacking, reports NextGov.
Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp cited state sovereignty concerns.
“The question remains whether the federal government will subvert the Constitution to achieve the goal of federalizing elections under the guise of security,” he told Nextgov in an email. “Designating voting systems or any other election system as critical infrastructure would be a vast federal overreach, the cost of which would not equally improve the security of elections in the United States.”
Pennsylvania, a battleground state, expressed confidence in its own ability to hold a secure election.
This is likely a ploy to disrupt and rig the elections in favor of Hillary Clinton.
We will have more information on this topic as it becomes available.
