DHS Chief Johnson: Feds May Declare Election System “Critical Infrastructure”
By Paul Bedard
From Washington Examiner


Even before the FBI identified new cyberattacks 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 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 a media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

    • Given the CIA’s historic role in creating, training and funding ISIS leaders, it looks to me like they have just imported a new gang to replace the Bloods and Crips. Makes you wonder if they will be used to distribute cocaine and heroin in the US.


  1. They can do what they want with this election. I am not voting anyway. And besides, they are already doing whatever they want with this election, just as they have done with every other election. We have no say in anything. We have long since given up any ‘freedoms’ we ever had, which were always few to begin with and some of us had fewer freedoms than others, but they’re now playing ‘catch up’. Yeah! Welcome to MY world! But remember, the ‘troops’ have been protecting our ‘freedoms’; non-existent freedoms, so just what are we ‘thanking the troops’ for?

    Oh and go and try to take substantial amounts of money out of your bank accounts and get back to me on how well that goes. We are being controlled..AND how!

    Thanks for posting this one Dr. Bramhall!


  2. (Sigh). I sure can’t argue with any of what you say, Shelby. Recently I’ve been reading up on the history of the US labor movement and the tragic error early union leaders (except for the IWW – they were truly visionary) made by excluding Mexicans, African Americans, Chinese and women from labor unions. Unfortunately it seems my ancestors royally fucked themselves over by allowing their racism and sexism to blind them to the opportunity to create a united and powerful working class movement. Thanks to their arrogant ignorance, it seems we are all screwed now.


  3. Maybe there´s something else “on the way”!
    Things to Possibly Come
    Preface: At present “incidentally” my WordPress Blog WiPoKuLi is defect and I´m not able to post new articles. Thus I take this way to publish my analysis about possible developments.
    USA: New „Business Plot“ under way?
    The real US Power Elite might count just 100 People. It is made up of the super rich, the „Military Industrial Complex“ (of which already Eisenhower warned) and the most influential heads of the „Intelligence“ community and the military. Since Kennedy´s assassination no US President ever dared to go massively against the will of that Power Elite. But still there might be too much of Democracy in the US according to the taste of those 100 people.
    Now we see the elections coming up in the US. We see a female warmonger, who is basically to the taste of those guys but also seems to have serious problems. Her health seems shaking. More and more „casualitues“ around her and her husband surface. Alternative media talk about the „Clinton Body Count“. Adding to this are scandalous email cases regarded by many as treason. Leaving alone the financial scandals.
    I made a prediction: if Trump´s chances to win the race increase, something nasty could happen to him. The „lone weird gunman“ might already be waiting. Could I´ve been wrong and things might go the other way round?
    In 1933 part of the US Power Elite planned the aborted „Business Plot” of 1933. This showed the readiness of the super rich to do away with US Democracy. Those days power wasn´t as concentrated as today. What if another more effective Business Plot is „in the pipe“? What if a serious „False Flag“ is on the way? The US Power Elite has „qualified“ for such a thing already with „Nine Eleven“, preparing the way for the War of Terror against the world.
    One and a half decade after Nine Eleven: another False Flag?
    Let me present a scenario: those media controled by the Power Elite have already tried to tie Russia to the Wikileaks publications. They´ve tried hard to present Trump almost as Putin´s agent. Could there be a setup in planing to liquidate the weird sick woman Clinton and present it as a Russian Secret Service operation?! The „answer“ could be a „State of Emergency“. It would be declared “in order” not to let the US fall into the hands of „Putin´s Agent“ Trump. And quite a number of people might be happy to have the „Freak“ prevented. Democracy might be suspended for „the better of the US“. That might cause an uprising but strange things are already reported about FEMA camps. US Society would go full swing into militarization, even much more than already happened. The „allies“, maybe better called vassals, might hardly say something out of fear, the „terror might come“. Apocalypse Now?!

    • Excellent analysis, Andreas. I think the US oligarchy has every intention of enacting a scenario similar to what you propose. It makes me wonder whether the faltering economy would survive these shenanigans. What is your view on the risk of US economic collapse and/or the US dollar crashing?
