Now Georgia isn’t the only state that the DHS tried to hack! https://www.facebook.com/stfnews/videos/1244446025632505/
Late breaking developments have emerged in the case of Georgia vs. The Department of Homeland Security
Today (12/15/16) it was revealed that not only did DHS attempt to penetrate GA’s firewall once, but it had in fact attempted to do so a total of 10 times.
With the official narrative coming from the Obama administration, indeed, the president himself, that the Russians stand guilty of hacking the presidential election of 2016, many are left scratching their heads in disbelief that the only government found to be hacking a state election systems, thus far, is DHS.
DHS keeps changing their story. “First it was an employee in Corpus Christi, and now it’s a contractor in Georgia,” he said describing how the official DHS explanation keeps changing. Kemp, unsatisfied with Jeh Johnson’s response to his inquiry is now placing his faith in Trump to resolve the matter. “We just need to ask the new administration to take a look at this and make sure that we get the truth, the people of Georgia deserve to know that, and are really demanding it,” he concluded. Then he added:
“There’s still more questions here than answers which is very concerning,” Kemp said. “It’s evident I think the secretary’s folks (Johnson’s team) think they’ve figured this out and they’re moving on, we just don’t know, and until we know we need to keep working on this.”
The Georgia Secretary of State wrote another letter to President-elect Donald Trump, asking for help in resolving the matter and getting the answers he seeks. WSB-TV reported Johnson’s team has not responded to multiple attempts to their inquiry.
Everywhere groups are attempting to expose the corporate mainstream media’s “fake news” narrative. Here and now, the GA Secretary of State reports the truth about who’s doing the hacking, the Feds themselves, and not one member of the mainstream media news networks will even touch the story! Seems to me that the Mainstream Media is the “FAKE NEWS”
After Donald Trump won the election, the Democrats have claimed that the election machines were hacked. However, based on new information, their investigation into hacking should be directed at the White House.
The Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued a letter to the Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson asking for an explanation as to why the DHS “tried to breach his office’s firewall,” as per Cyber Scoop. It looks like it’s time to send some Obama employees to jail!
A third-party cyber-security contractor detected the November 15 hack attempt and traced it to the Southwest Washington DC office of the Department of Homeland Security. Brian Kemp was then alerted of the hack attempt.
Kemp’s said in his letter:
“At no time has my office agreed to or permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our network,”
You would think there would be some kind of agreement process for a state to open its systems to hack attempts by the federal government. (See video below)
Previously, the Secretary of Homeland Security stated that there is no evidence of a significant cyber attack on election day. Apparently they failed to mention their own attack.
If the Department of Homeland Security is about to announce they were only testing the system, well, Kent has already pointed out why any such claim would be illogical. In the letter, Kent states, “Moreover, your department has not contacted my office since this unsuccessful incident to alert us of any security event that would require testing or scanning of our network.”
You’d think they would alert the Georgia Secretary of State of the results of any test-hack they performed on his system? Besides, Kemp has already refused assistance from DHS concerning security for the elections. He argues that his third-party security provider is sufficient, and it seems he was right to deny Homeland Security’s offer of help.
A spokesperson for the DHS confirmed that they received Kemp’s letter and would be investigating the matter. However, I wouldn’t hold my breath for them to admit that they hacked anything. Some believe that the administration is attempting to federalize the election process and use the allegedly Russian hacking as a scare tactic to do so.
If that is the case, it would make sense that the Obama administration was attempting to hack into state voting systems, to make the argument that the security provided by the state is weak, and therefore they should except the federal government’s assistance in the matter.
We doubt that President-Elect Trump would agree with this, as his platform is about rejecting the establishment, not giving it more power. He’s also advocated for states’ rights in many matters.
There is no evidence at all that the Russians hacked the election results. If this were an individual who hacked a state computer, they would be thrown in jail for decades. I guess if you’re with the federal government you are told the law doesn’t apply to you.
