Best Election Ever!
Better look for cloaking behind multiple agency smokescreens...
Oh boy ....this has got to be upsetting to our dear leader. Right over him to prez elect.
We were told in the weeks leading up to the election that Georgia was gonna go blue. Guess DHS was trying to make it so?
Police State ballot stuffing, from Bammy turd world fundamental transformation of America.
DHS was running counter cyber warfare tests.
You know that’s the administrations stand.
REFERENCE Georgia Says U.S. Govt Tried to Hack States Computers Housing Voter Data
WSJ / FR Posted by bryan999
The secretary of state of Georgia is asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain what appears to be an attempted breach of the states computer systems that house its voter registration database by someone in the federal government.
In a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson dated Thursday, Georgias Secretary of State Brian Kemp said the state had discovered an unsuccessful attempt to breach the firewall of state computer systems. The attempt occurred on Nov. 15 and was linked to an IP address associated with DHS, he said.
At no time has my office agreed to or permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our network, wrote Mr. Kemp, a Republican. 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.
We are looking into the matter. DHS takes the trust of our public and private sector partners seriously, and we will respond to Secretary Kemp directly, a spokeswoman for DHS said.
The rub is these ‘ops’ were done w/o permission or fore-notice. It’s not that they were done but how they were done. From GA point of view they looked like a bonafide attack.
I guess Jeh plumb "forget" to mention it. ROTFLOL.
Homeland Security seeks $41.2 billion budget for 2016
February 4, 2015 By BioPrepWatch Reports
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced a $41.2 billion budget request Monday for the 2016 fiscal year.
The budget would improve the unity of effort at the department, Johnson said, focusing on harmonizing DHS business processes. Along with the budget, a new Common Appropriations Structure was also submitted to Congress, which would standardize financial planning, programming and budgets for all DH agencies, Johnson said.
There are five areas the department focuses on each year, and the budget is in alignment with those five missions, Johnson said.
<><> The first mission is to prevent terrorism and enhance security in the country by implementing security for the land, air and at sea.
<><> The next mission is to secure and manage the countrys borders, and reduce the number of illegal immigrants and amount of contraband getting into the United States.
<><> The third mission includes enforcing and administering immigration laws and providing safe and secure detention of illegal immigrants in federal custody if they are a flight risk or a public safety concern.
<><> The fourth mission deals with safeguarding and securing cyberspace, which impacts economic security. The 2016 budget would invest in technology and staff to reduce cybercrime and improve the security of federal network defenses.
<><> The fifth mission, Johnson said, is to strengthen national preparedness and resilience so the country can prepare and respond to any type of disaster.
Johnson said before Congress approves any funding for the next fiscal year lawmakers should approve funding for the current year.
"The Presidents FY 2016 Budget provides the resources necessary for the Department of Homeland Security to further strengthen our efforts to fulfill our wide-ranging missions, while also being agile and vigilant in the face of ever-evolving threats and recent world events, Johnson said. But prior to acting on the FY 2016 Budget, I urge Congress to fully fund DHS for the rest of this fiscal year, as the current continuing resolution is disruptive, creates uncertainty, and impedes efficient resource planning and execution."

DHS bussed in illegals across the border for 3 MONTHS straight before the elections. They were obviously taking orders from Klownie the kenyan..
No one should be surprised if this is a conspiracy that goes right to Barak Husein Obama and Hillary Clinton.
It actually makes a lot more sense then blaming the Russians who had every reason to want Hillary elected... NOT Trump.
Oh yeah, I'm sure they'll get right on that.
Russian moles in the DHS.
Wait until they have to answer to Senator Kennedy.....
I suspect that any computer using an real IP number facing the ‘net is port scanned daily or better.
Shredding machines going full blast.
