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.
“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 at media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
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.”

As far as I am concerned, the DHS is every bit as corrupt as the FBI – particularly under the “leadership” of Jeh Johnson who, as we all know, is an appointee of the Kenyan comrade Dear Ruler.
Why not just go ahead and put George Soros in charge of running the election – if he is not already pulling the strings off stage. Somehow I think the result would be the same.
This idea smells, and I am holding out little hope that the worthless congressional RINOs will do anything meaningful to stop it.
The election is still two months away, as such, there is still ample time to bring in independent people to oversee the process.
Should that not happen then we will know the “fix” really is in.
