Today is the culmination of months of preparation to prevent the “Russians” from meddling in the U.S. election process. According to high ranking anonymous Obama administration officials, the feds will be involved in the process to an unprecedented degree to prevent Putin from swinging the election to Donald Trump. Look for a heavy federal presence both visibly and behind the scenes at polling places today to make sure that no anti-Hillary mischief occurs – other than the government sanctioned type.
NBC News reports “‘All Hands on Deck’ to Protect Election From Hack, Say Officials”:
The U.S. government is gearing up for an unprecedented effort to protect Tuesday’s presidential election from cyber attack, U.S. officials told NBC News.
“There are a lot of eyes on this presidential election — more than there normally would be,” a senior Obama administration official said.
Cyber centers at the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the FBI — as well as the Pentagon, the CIA and other intelligence agencies — will be on alert, with extra staff hunting for any possible threat, officials say.
The concern is so high, intelligence officials told NBC, that for the first time, hundreds of military and intelligence cyber experts who work out of top secret facilities, including underground bunkers, will be monitoring intelligence about a U.S. presidential election. They will react to any threat to the federal government’s communication and command systems.
The fully politicized Obama Justice Department is also putting boots on the ground by sending federal election monitors to 28 states to guard against civil rights abuses.
Breitbart News reports “DOJ to Monitor Election Day Polls in 28 States”:
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced it is deploying more than 500 personnel to monitor Election Day polls in 28 states, including three counties in Texas.
State and local governments are responsible for administering elections but the DOJ says its Civil Rights Division is “charged with enforcing the federal voting rights laws that protect the rights of all citizens to access the ballot on Election Day.”
The Civil Rights Division of the DOJ announced it will be “on the ground in 67 jurisdictions for compliance with the federal voting rights laws.” The statement from the Department does not disclose how these jurisdictions were selected.
In a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said, “The bedrock of our democracy is the right to vote, and the Department of Justice works tirelessly to uphold that right not only on Election Day, but every day.”
The Obama-Clinton surrogates in the media are pushing both the “Russian” hacking and bullying by Trump supporters memes for all they’re worth with the Washington Post Editorial Board accusing Republicans of voter “suppression” (dog whistle language for “racism) as well as providing a guide on how to spot and report “voter intimidation” at the polls.
The only thing missing from this charade are armed government goons standing guard next to the voting machines like in other banana republics but it just doesn’t make for good optics.
As Trump has repeatedly said, there are trillions of dollars at stake today and there is nothing that the corrupt establishment won’t do to make sure that Americans make the right choice.
