September 1, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Until a few intrepid reporters started nosing around the story, very few Americans were aware of backdoor plans by the Obama administration to federalize elections, a move that would clearly be unconstitutional.
However, given that the “opposition party” has simply rolled over for Obama, allowing dozens of clearly unconstitutional executive orders to go forward, the prospect of this CIC merely acting in contravention of the law of the land again, can’t be seen as an impediment to implementation of this plan.
Speaking at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast on August 3, DHS chief Jeh Johnson outlined the framework for such an undertaking, making a number of bold assertions:
“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…We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid”
"There's no one federal election system. There are some 9,000 jurisdictions involved in the election process…"
Though DHS is charged with maintaining the integrity of 16 key areas of the American infrastructure, interfering in the electoral process is not one of them.
Johnson’s comments seemed to assume critical mass upon a suspicious “finding” by the FBI that the databases of several states had been hacked by the bogeyman of the moment…of course…the Russians.
The problem is that neither DHS nor the FBI at this point has any credibility.
DHS has clearly failed to protect the homeland from domestic kinetic terror attacks, for example over just the last 9 months we have see the San Bernardino jihad [14 killed, 22 seriously wounded] and quite recently, the Muslim massacre at a gay nightclub located in Orlando [53 dead, 50 seriously wounded]. There are ISIS investigations [over 1,000] in every state, yet there are precious few arrests.
Though lacking the psychic impact of mass casualty attacks, electronic espionage might easily present a far worse threat. If a rogue entity were able to hack into the U.S. power grid, the potential damage might be severe enough to entirely destabilize the country.
Yet this type of hacking has exploded during the Obama years, with the agencies whose job it is to prevent such breaches of security, having proven themselves laughably ineffective.
"Espionage is happening at a rate we have never seen before," said Denise Zheng, a deputy director at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. There were almost 61,000 cyber attacks and security breaches across the entire federal government last year  according to a recent Obama administration report…the number of cyber incidents involving government agencies has jumped 35 percent between 2010 and 2013, from roughly 34,000 to about 46,000…” according to a GAO study.

There is of course absolutely no statutory basis upon which this administration could justify a decision to seize control of the November 8 presidential election…but they are getting desperate.
From our perspective, the Democrats are deathly afraid that Hillary will be beaten like a rented mule by challenger Donald Trump in a little over 60 days.
She is largely absent from the campaign trail, will only make appearances under carefully controlled conditions, can’t draw an audience that hasn’t been bribed, she has yet to hold a single press conference this year [ 270+ days according to the Washington Post ] and appears to be frail to the point of physically falling apart.
On the other hand, Trump is a human dynamo, stepping way outside the box, for example yesterday’s historic summit between the candidate and the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto to discuss immigration among other topics, for which the Mexican president deserves credit, it being extremely unpopular with the country’s ultra-leftist press.
The familiar feel of political doom is setting in among Hillary’s inner circle as in recent polls it seems that Trump has jetted into the lead as the election draws ever nearer and Hillary’s deficiencies as a candidate become seen in high resolution.
If DHS does manage to take over the nation’s elections, it could potentially with the assistance of the NSA, control the recorded vote count. The NSA is most likely technically capable of such manipulation and after the last 7 years it’s pretty easy to imagine Obama taking the steps to simply kill the republic using federal agencies which seem incapable of resisting his schemes.
Done skillfully the addition of a relative few votes here and there could determine the final results from the Electoral College and might actually escape detection, though if the nation senses that the contest was a blowout with Trump handily winning, the rigging would become widely apparent…not that it would matter at that point.
We would advise our readers to be extremely cognizant of such a possibility. Given Obama’s growing megalomania, the Pravda-ization of the U.S. press and his billionaire allies such as George Soros, this man is capable of just about anything including turning America into a banana republic.
Folks, it’s up to you.
