It’s true – the presidential election was hacked. The evidence is irrefutable. The state of Indiana tracked almost 15,000 hits on their electoral system around the time of the election. The state of Georgia was also hit with tens of thousands of hack attempts. Fortunately, both of these states had better security in place than the Democratic National Committee.
When the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign was hacked – because they refused to pay attention to FBI warnings – the only thing that was breached were embarrassing emails. No one knows what the intent was with respect to the attempted breaching of the Indiana and Georgia electoral systems. In both cases, hackers were trying to breach the Secretary of State’s system were vote totals were kept. Had the hackers been able to breach the security they could’ve modified vote totals.
The shocking thing about these hacking attempts is that they were done by the Russians. Officials in both Indiana and Georgia know exactly who tried to hack their systems. Facts were traced back to the Department of Homeland Security, that would be Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security. Why would the Department of Homeland Security be attempting to breach election systems?
Could they have been just testing the systems to make sure they were secure? Possibly. On the other hand, could they have been attempting to breach the firewalls to get into the Secretary of State’s ballot results to manipulate the election totals?
In fact, federal officials are barred from trying to penetrate state electoral systems without the express preapproval of the state. The Department of Homeland Security made no effort to contact either Georgia or Indiana before the hacking attempts on their systems.
The Department of Homeland Security has launched an official investigation into the attempted breach, but I’m not expecting the results will make the news. When was the last time the government investigating themselves turned over anything newsworthy?
Remember the IRS scandal? How about Hillary’s server? Much ado about nothing, right? And you can bet nobody at the Department of Homeland Security is going to be charged with anything over these hacking attempts. Sen. John McCain and his Democratic friends in Congress are going to be way too busy investigating why “the Russians” hacked John Podesta’s email account.
What do you think? Do you think Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security made an attempt to change the vote totals in the presidential election? Please let us know in the comments.
