The ruling establishment has responded to Donald Trump’s election by laying the groundwork to federalize, and thus control, future elections. Read Tyler Durden’s report:http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-06/stunning-last-minute-power-grab-obama-designates-election-systems-critical-infrastru

The federal government does not have the constitutional authority to administer elections, only to set the date. The Obama regime’s designation of elections as “critical infrastructure” seems to have no function other than to put in place a way to prevent voters from overthrowing an entrenched establishment, as the establishment fears the voters did when they elected Trump president.

The distrubing question is: Why do it now after Trump’s election? Could there be a plot to rescind Trump’s election on the basis of the ongoing lies that Trump was elected not by the voters but by Russian interference? Federalization can be used to remove the states from the picture and prevent the states from challenging an establishment coup against the voters.

US elections are decentralized in the hands of the states. There is no national network that would make hacking possible. The Department of Homeland Security can make suggestions to the states for improving the security of elections without declaring federal authority over the elections as “critical infrastructure.”

This is a disturbing development for which explanation and reason are lacking. Trump, if inaugurated, can overturn it or use it to ensure his reelection. Moreover, this last minute act of Obama is based on nothing but the false allegations of Russian interference. Despite the total absence of any evidence, the Obama regime continues to insist that the election was tainted by Russian interference, and the presstitutes repeat the lie as if it is true. For a media that ridicules “conspiracy theories,” it is certainly hypocritical for the presstitutes to be hyping the Russian hacking conspiracy.

What is the point of this lie to which the Obama regime and the presstitute media are committed? Is it merely to throw mud at Trump? Or is it to lay the foundation for a coup?

Mike Pence, an admirer of Dick Cheney, is a strange choice for Trump’s vice president. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mike-pence-looks-at-dick-cheney-as-a-role-model-for-vice-presidency/

By making this choice, has Trump set himself up for removal?

  1. The primary goal of those who demand federalized elections is to force states to validate the votes of illegal aliens and felony convicted criminals.

    A secondary goal is to force all states to use uniform electronic ballots with voting machines controlled by a diversity freak mogul.

    There is one aspect of the ruling establishment worth bearing in mind:

    They regularly venture into projects that fail.
    They do things without having achievable long-term goals in mind.

    When you remind yourself that the establishment has acted in dozens of areas in ways that more or less guaranteed failure, you can accept the following:

    This federalization may well not be a part of a cold-blooded, longsighted scheme.

    (a better conceptualisation of it might be an attack by a wounded animal.)
    (I regret comparing the power elites with animals, though.:)

    Dear Mr, Roberts,

    I think the “ruling establishment” is absolutely terrified of being held to account for the horrible things they have done to our country and the world.

    They have committed so many crimes, and pilfered so much money from the taxpayers in the process, I can only imagine they would seek out every technique at their disposal to both remain relevant and stay out of prison.

    Perhaps President Trump can offer them a “deal”…..he will hold off having them all fitted for “orange jump suits” if they donate ninety-nine percent of their combined wealth to pay down the horrific national debt their “war fraud “and “banking fraud” created.

    It may not be justice in the absolute sense, but at least our country might regain a small fraction of its lost solvency.
