Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Editor: Who among us doesn't think that Homeland Security is not about security? Who would trust that agency to commandeer our election system? Read it and then tell us you feel much more confident that we will have fair, fraud-free elections in November? OR... do you think the "hack" was orchestrated?]
"The elective franchise, if guarded as the ark of our safety, will peaceably dissipate all combinations to subvert a Constitution, dictated by the wisdom, and resting on the will of the people. “
— Thomas Jefferson
With news of the intrusion of unnamed hackers into the computerized election records of Arizona and Illinois, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing to designate the country’s electoral system as “critical infrastructure.”
By making such a move, the DHS would exercise authority given to it in the days after September 11, 2001 to preserve political and civil safety.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said, "We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid. There's a vital national interest in our process.”
In simpler terms, the Obama administration isn’t content with controlling Wall Street and the power grid; it will soon exert absolute authority over the ballot box, too.
As for the identity of those areas of “critical infrastructure” which DHS currently controls, the agency’s website explains:
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.
These sectors include:
Defense Industrial Base
Food and Agriculture
Health Care and Public Health
Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste
Waste and Wastewater Systems
That is the current list of aspects of life in the United States that will be controlled by bureaucrats — unelected, unaccountable, unconstitutional bureaucrats — should these areas ever be threatened in any way.
This is a plan for centralization of power that is unprecedented in the history of the world. Sadly, this centralization is planned in the country that was once the freest in the history of the world — whose freedom was perpetuated by a carefully crafted Constitution.
As is the habit of the statists, they identify federalism as the culprit, not the criminals sitting at the keyboards.
Secretary Johnson made the point in August when he justified the quest for control by explaining that "there's no one federal election system. There are some 9,000 jurisdictions involved in the election process.”

The election process should be free from fraud but considering the heavy liberal bias in the media that does not seem to be the case. Since we have Muslims in the DHS, it does not seem right for them to be the ones to monitor it
Jeh Johnson. Yeah, THAT's the ticket! Yeah! :<( George Soros and his electronic voting machines + Homeland Security = more fraud than ever before. Now the question is did we wake up too late and too slowly?
Obama and the C0-opted U.S. Federal Government spends $Billions every year of invasive measures used to monitor Americans. Did they stop Sandy Hook school False Flag, did they stop the Boston Marathon False Flag, how about Garland, Texas, how about the underwear bomber, or the shoe bomber????
WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY DOING WITH ALL THAT $$$$ BESIDES SPYING ON AMERICANS?
I would feel PERFECTLY INsecure having having DHS monitor the election. Let them monitor it from their living rooms.
I'll tell you what their afraid of....they're afraid the America's Sheriffs will step in and REALLY make sure there's no chicanery at the polling stations.
I guess insuring that the filthy criminal clinton gets off scott free was not enough for King Obama the 1st. Now he wants to insure that the murdering trash is elected president. Guess he needs the insurance so that when his treasonous legacy comes to light, he will be pardoned.
Yeah, Johnson and his criminal cronies want to "make the entire election process a federal process and remove authority from the states and local jurisdictions" to make it "safe". I can't remember which communist asshole made the statement about "he who counts the votes has the real power", but it sure applies here. If the fed/fascist bureaucrats take control of our election process, they will also take control of the outcomes of our election process. To paraphrase the shouts of our founders, To Arms, To Arms, the feds are coming.
That would have been Stalin who spoke about who counts the votes.
