Department of Homeland Security Wants to Centralize Voting System

Following the attacks of September 11, 2001 Bush announced the creation of the Department of Homeland Security.

“The mission of the Office will be to develop and coordinate the implementation of a comprehensive national strategy to secure the United States from terrorist threats or attacks. The Office will coordinate the executive branch’s efforts to detect, prepare for, prevent, protect against, respond to, and recover from terrorist attacks within the United States,” an executive order issued on October 8, 2001 states.

Since that time the DHS has grown to become the largest Cabinet department with a quarter of a million employees and as many of if not more contractors. It has absorbed twenty two security related agencies, including those responsible for border protection and immigration. It also coordinates on cybersecurity.

On Tuesday Obama ordered the CIA’s Foreign Denial and Deception Committee to investigate the hacking of voter registration databases in Arizona and Illinois. The Illinois hack occurred in late July. It brought down the state’s voter registration for 10 days and compromised data on as many as 200,000 registered voters. The Arizona intrusion was less significant. It allegedly introduced malware into the voter registration system but data was not stolen.

The establishment media immediately fixed blame on Russia as it did following the DNC hack that embarrassed Democrats and brought down DNC boss Debbie Wassermann Schultz.

The claim was made despite an admission by the FBI it has no idea who is responsible. Regardless, the “consensus among U.S. intelligence analysts is that Russia is seeking to undermine confidence in the U.S. system, using the hacks into the Democratic National Committee, state election systems and other targets that have yet to be made public, as part of a larger campaign,” NBC reports.

Prior to the voter database hack the DHS said during media conference hosted by the Christian Science Monitor it plans to centralize and control the voting system.

“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.

“There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” he said.

Johnson faced criticism following his remarks. He was asked by Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler if there was indeed a threat to the voting system and Johnson said there was not.

“That confirms what another high-level source who attended a White House meeting last week said – that DHS officials admitted they had no evidence of any ‘credible threat’ of a cyber-attack,” Hans von Spakovsky wrote for the Conservative Review on August 17. “But designating the nation’s election system as ‘critical infrastructure’ under a post 9/11 federal statute may be a way for the administration to get Justice Department lawyers, the FBI, and DHS staff into polling places they would otherwise have no legal right to access, which would enable them to interfere with election administration procedures around the country.”

A few days later the voter registration databases in Arizona and Illinois were breached.

The move to centralize and federalize the voting system adds credence to Donald Trump’s claim the vote this November will be rigged against him.

  1. I’d be very concerned that Globalists would be in control of an election. Brexit already is no go regardless of the vote. There are no limits to the evils of Globalism and their minions. The complete destruction of the 1st world western civilizations must happen for the Globalist tyranny to succeed. They’re well on their way to succeeding.

  2. These hacks will hack the useless pathetic voting machines.
    Old school paper is the only way to vote with, on the spot counters and verifiers.

  3. The big DHS hand, like a shadow over our election, which will never be the same under its manipulation and control and represents the end of even the hint that voting means anything other than a way to keep us busy and unfocused on other treasonous issues that creep in under cover of night.

    • Is this DHS-system not an ex-DDR/STASI project of the past and since the fall of the Berlin wall about 1989, established in America round 1993 as DHS?
      As I might remember, the same (DDR) person who was running this secret organization in the DDR went to America and is now one of the leading hands of this DHS?


  4. We do not use voting MACHINES to vote with. Look what happened to Romney’s count when the machines kept deleting his name and adding Obama’s name instead. Not going to happen with us and many more voters. We all vote and hand deliver ours in our court houses. Only way we know to have them safe.

  5. Any semblance to free and open elections is officially over as soon as they take over. Of course, Congress will go along with it. Which is why we need Trump to clean house and stop the crud in Washington.

  6. There has been no way to verify counts ever since we went to voting machines [made in foreign countries]which even a 12 year old can hack. We need to go back to all paper ballots with observers from all parties in the room during the count.

    • And clear, shatterproof acrylic ballot boxes with locks that cannot be opened but in the presence of monitors. The machines haven’t been hacked, but have been preprogrammed and cannot be detected.

  7. And I thought the US with its million persons Army/Navy/Airforce servicing is capable stopping an eventual invasion by … eh terrorists or other aliens of the USA?
    But now I read there is also an Institution called Department of Homeland Security to protect America against all these “dangers” from outside and inside that might have “intention” to attack the USA and/or US.
    And every Department has its own personnel, its own army, its own war toys, its own policy, its own budget and its own politics.
    And now they want to control all the voting machines in the USA?
    Maybe they think voting is a terrorist act?

    The US must have plenty of dollars to finance and maintain such hugh institutions.
    One million soldiers for defense of America plus twohundredandfiftythousand DHS-personnel for defense of … ???.
    US must be “Unbeatable” now.


  8. There IS a threat to the voting systems around the country. That threat is the federal behemoth.

  9. They’re playing all kinds of head games on the left to get reactions to their attempts to stop or totally control your vote. How many antics, scandals and other nonsense can you keep track of at once?
