Has Obama Already Told Us The Election Will Be Rigged?
Were we so distracted, we missed it?
I admit, I had read the stories last week where President Obama spoke about the security of electronic ballot tabulators in the wake of the recent DNC email hacks, and when he offered up his possible solutions, it didn’t set off any alarm bells.
Until today. I stumbled across a short YouTube video by the Next News Network, an independent, alternative news source. The video discussed Obama’s consideration of declaring the electronic election system a part of the country’s critical infrastructure not unlike the power grid.
The topic was outlined in the New York Times on August 3rd:
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is weighing new steps to bolster the security of the United States’ voting process against cyberthreats, including whether to designate the electronic ballot-casting system for November’s elections as “critical infrastructure,” Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security, said on Wednesday.
Sounds logical enough and to the casual reader, it sounds prudent — we should be concerned about security breaches from hackers in something as important as election results.
Then I watched this video…
Gary Franchi of the NextNews Network suggests being declared critical infrastructure might, and most likely does, mean — classified under national security, in other words, the results would forever be concealed from public scrutiny under the guise of our own safety.
Having seen the lengths the liberal media has taken on behalf of a nervous Democratic Party in the last week alone, I think Mr. Franchi might be onto something. If electronic balloting becomes an area of just trust us, immune from outside oversight, voting really will become meaningless. Results will be whatever the ruling elite wants them to be.
At the very least, any more talk of critical infrastructure warrants close scrutiny on everyone’s part to discover exactly what the classification means applied to electronic election results.
