Barb’s note: Yes, there was a method behind the madness of this year’s election circus and the supposed “Russian influence” that has been bandied about without a shred of evidence to support it. Homeland Security is now taking over elections without Congressional approval. It’s a national security issue, don’tcha know. The Hegelian Dialectic in action.


No More Fake News

On a scale of importance from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most important, this breaking development is a 500.

On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections. If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:

“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

“’Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law’,” Johnson said in a statement. He added: ‘Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing to do’.”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

“The determination came after months of review and despite opposition from many states worried that the designation would lead to increased federal regulation or oversight on the many decentralized and locally run voting systems across the country. It was announced on the same day a declassified U.S. intelligence report said Russian President Vladimir Putin ‘ordered’ an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.”

[Also known as: “we needed an excuse, a fake cover story for our takeover, and Russia is it.”]

“Such a change [in who controls the US election process] does not require presidential action [or Congressional approval], and only requires the secretary [of DHS] to first consult with the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.”

[Also known as: “this is a coup by the White House.”]

“Johnson said election infrastructure included storage facilities, polling places and vote tabulation locations, plus technology involved in the process, including voter registration databases, voting machines and other systems used to manage the election process and report and display results.”

[Also known as: “We’re taking over every significant aspect of the national election process.”]

“The designation [of US elections as critical infrastructure] allows for information to be withheld from the public when state, local and private partners meet to discuss election infrastructure security — potentially injecting secrecy into an election process that’s traditionally and expressly a transparent process. U.S. officials say such closed door conversations allow for frank discussion that would prevent bad actors from learning about vulnerabilities. DHS would also be able to grant security clearances when appropriate and provide more detailed threat information to states.”

[Also known as: “we can intercede in the election process and determine its outcome without any need to pretend we’re being transparent; only people we approve will know the details of how we run elections; secrecy works.”]

“The Obama administration has proposed international cyber rules for peacetime that would expressly note that countries shouldn’t conduct online activity targeting critical [US] infrastructure, which will now also include election systems.”

[Also known as: “in case there is any doubt, elections systems in America will be property of the federal Executive Branch.”]

This is a coup.

This is equivalent to declaring a national state of emergency, including martial law: the DHS, if it deemed it necessary, could utilize armed agents to enforce the new directive and take over states’ offices that resist.

Election-processes belong to the states. But not anymore.

And of course, with this awesome new power, the DHS could intercede, behind the scenes, in the voting process and rig elections.

There is an additional aligned factor at work in this op: the proposed elimination of the Electoral College—yet another measure designed to “federalize” the election process.

Most people are entirely ignorant of the fact that the Constitution was a pact among states. With reluctance, the independent states agreed to relinquish certain specified powers to the newly created central government, while retaining all other powers.

The Electoral College was, therefore, a natural invention, because the states would maintain crucial influence in determining the outcome of presidential elections. State Electors would cast their presidential votes based on which candidate won in their state.

Eliminating the Electoral College now would add one more layer of federal control over the whole country, and take control from the states. More centralization.

Imagine it. Only the popular vote counts. The states are dumped. And on top of it all, the Dept. of Homeland Security has the power to run the election process as a piece of “critical infrastructure.”

Rigging the vote in New York and California, plus a few other populous states, would decide the election. And in time, no one would think about “New York” or “California” as separate entities—because they wouldn’t be. They would just be “more land and people” that are part of “wholly unified” America.

This is perfect for the “unity politicians” who spout empty rhetoric every chance they get—“we’re all in this together.” As I tirelessly point out, such slogans are nothing less than covert ops, and their goal is roping in as many dullards as possible under a messianic banner of A Better Life for All under a Beneficent Government.

Also known as: we the rulers decree, you the people submit; your survival depends on us; we give and take as we will, and that shall be the whole of the law.

Eventually, why have presidential elections at all? Just allow the DHS to determine which candidate will best serve the needs and desires of the controllers.

It’s cleaner, simpler, and more direct.

It’s a coup.

Will Trump cancel it?

Obama is basically challenging him to do it—which would create one more firestorm in the press directed at Trump.

“See, the new president just stopped the DHS from protecting our sacred free elections. Trump is exhibiting more treasonous cooperation with his Russian masters…he’s leaving the door wide open for their secret invasion against our liberties…”

The timeline is clear. One: Hillary will surely win the election. Two: Trump won the election. Three: Trump won because Russia “hacked the election” in his favor. Four: We must protect our national election process from foreign hacking. Five: Homeland Security must put itself in charge of national elections.

Stay tuned.

A coup just occurred.

    So now we have a coup, a counter coup, a counter counter coup,a counter counter counter counter coup, a counter counter counter counter counter coup going on. 5 1/2 days to go.

    If you live in So. Cal. you should know whats going on in Mexico (Pemex Oil). Could get pretty hairy by Wednesday. If you live down there, now might be a good time to enjoy the freezing rain in the Midwest. Especially from the boarder from Mexicali to T.J, or Calexico to San Diego area. Of coarse Moonbeam supports this. (that be Cal. Gov. Brown)

    Porky (Poroshenko, the Bankster puppet) violated the cease fire a week ago or so on Donetsk, and Back Door Barry is moving hardware into the Ukraine. So things are getting hairy over there. Then there’s the Middle East and the South China Sea.

    Soros is pulling all the cards out on all this crap. Sounds like other countries in Eastern Europe and the Middle East want his ass now to.

    Then there’s the awake in America. Just knowing there will be 1000 marines watching DC during the inauguration gives me peace, plus the 15000 weekend warriors and cops. Then there’s the 2 MILLION Presidential Bikers For Trump!!
    “American soldiers, dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns of foreign policy”
    Henry Kissinger
    Not any more Heinzie!! Does “Never Forget” mean anything to you Heinze?

    I hope Trump takes my advice of having all of Soros’s buss’s being boarded by 2 Marines, One like Animal Mother with a M-60 and a 200 round belt, and another well spoken, that can tell them why Obama negated Posse Comitatus and Habeas Corpus. As they haul them off to, as HitLIARy would say ” A happy Camp” (FEMA). To be indefinitely detained, Not charged, and not allowed a phone call.

    Stay vigilant people! Even a warning shot will make a snow flake melt! Were not winning, were kicking ass!! Just don’t be stupid people. Were at one of the most important turning points in American and Human history.

    Thank you Irene for the complement. I dedicate my pointer finger on my right hand to you! Not many call me a genius. MY GF from Kharkiv (Xapkiv) says the same thing.

  2. Irene says:

    Abe, your a genius. That needs to be published far and wide.. Especially the Russian part , I don’t want a false flag to be blamed on them and ww3

  3. Abe says:

    When Comey reopened HitLIARy’s investigation, he had a hot iron to his feet.

    When I was at election headquarters the evening of Nov. 8 2016, I was telling people that there was a coup going on, and Trump would win. Of coarse every one was resigned to the facts the presstitutes were saying all night, and the months before hand. I was aware of this happening over a month before the election. At the victory party a month later, people were asking me how I knew Trump would win? Trump was in on this, and after a week or so of thinking about it, he was dealt in and ran for President.

    The leaks were not from Putin, but factions inside our own government. Mainly FBI, CIA, and NSA.

    Believe it or not the USA has been having a coup, a counter coup, a counter counter coup, and a counter counter counter coup. To know what’s really going on Go to Steve’s screwtube channel and start from the video below and work your way up towards today.

    Steve R. Pieczenik, MD, PhD[1] (born December 7, 1943) is an American Science Fiction Writer, former United States Department of State official, Psychiatrist, and publisher.

    Kakistocracy definition
    1829, “government by the worst element of a society,” coined on analogy of its opposite, aristocracy, from Greek kakistos “worst,” superlative of kakos “bad” (which perhaps is related to the general IE word for “defecate;” see caco- ) + -cracy.

  5. Carole says:

    The evil of it all makes me sick. It has to be fixed, and in a totally transparent way. Paper ballots! Don’t let folks say it is impossible. It is ‘break done the whole into manageable parts, we have the facilities and the bodies to do it.
    We use to vote in schools when I was younger. Schools are facilities located pretty conveniently all over cities. Having a paper system in schools, whereby senior students would count the paper ballots and the total reported to the state auditor who posts the running results of all school districts for all to see. You have all these now very involved senior students who would be on the lookout for transgressions, erroneous postings. This could easily be built into their civics education.
    All mail in ballots would be sent out from school districts and be returned to the school district for counting.
    It is an excellent real life learning experience. Every step of the process would have the involvement of numerous students (many eyes). Check and balances in every process. Totally transparent…this would help involve our future voters and understand the process .
    Everything is being pushed on to us from top down by a group of elected officials, who are so detached from the problems of the people that their whole focus is how to lie and distort the truth so they can get re-elected.

  6. Google translate: I do not know the Americans know what is happening in Ukraine, but I talked to people in Donetsk, Crimea, Lugansk, Zaporozhye, Kharkov and Kherson.
    Soros, in his infinite wisdom, said Barry using Al-CIA-DUH make a coup to oust Yanukovych, and set in Porky Bankster puppet (Poroshenko), that he (Soros) can control gas and oil line Natural. I’m surprised, everything is more stable in Kharkiv and Kherson. All the areas mentioned were originally Russian but Stalin allowed Ukraine to have them, to make them more, and while it did not matter because they were part of the USSR. I heard last week Tailgate Barry added a nuclear weapon in Poland and the Baltic countries.

    I’ll make this part easy to understand Barb,
    Я не знаю, американцы знают, что происходит в Украине, но я разговаривал с людьми, в Донецке, Крыму, Луганске, Запорожье, Харькове и Херсоне.
    Сорос в своей бесконечной мудрости говорил Барри, используя Аль-ЦРУ-DUH сделать переворот, чтобы выгнать Януковича, и установить Порки в Bankster кукольный (Порошенко), чтобы он (Сорос) может контролировать газовые и нефтяные линии природных. Я удивлен, все обстоит несколько стабильны в Харькове и Херсоне. Все области, упомянутые были русские изначально, но Сталин позволил Украине иметь их, чтобы сделать их больше, и в то время это не имело значения, потому что все они были частью СССР. Я слышал на прошлой неделе Задняя дверь Барри добавил еще ядерное оружие в Польше и странах Балтии.
