Morning Greatness: Witnesses Detail Election Irregularities at Senate Hearing

Good Thursday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The President and First Lady participate in a signing ceremony for H.R. 473, Authorizing a Women’s Suffrage Monument in our Nation’s Capital

 

Two minutes of hate:

On Wednesday, the Senate Homeland Security held a hearing on election irregularities and heard testimony from several witness who presented details about fraudulent voting. The Democrats were having none of it and claimed the election was fine and perfect because only elections where they lose should permit closer scrutiny. Tens of millions of dollars of Mueller scrutiny to be exact. One of the slogans we hear from the advertisements showcased on corporate media machines, is that all the court cases thus far have been thrown out. Naturally, the Democrat senators parroted that line but Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) pointed out an inconvenient fact: almost all those cases were tossed out on procedural problems rather than on their merits. While Democrats complained about Trump supporters’ lack of trust in the election results, they are doing everything in the power to make sure Trump supporters have reason to be suspicious. Democrats and Republican traitors have stonewalled investigations, they are denying access to voting machines, their proxies blocked election observers from watching the tabulations so yes, these are not things one would do if they have nothing to hide or conceal.  More details on the hearing at Epoch Times.

Here’s one particularly heated exchange during the hearing:

ABC News reported on the hearing with the terrifically biased headline: Senate Republican uses hearing to pursue baseless election fraud claims as Trump tweets approval. Laughable. What will these outlets do when Trump is out of office? How will they get clicks?

The massive cyber attack recently revealed is not getting nearly enough attention. CNN wants you to know, “federal officials are still struggling to understand the scope of the damage.” The hack took place months ago, in the early spring, when Homeland Security’s cybersecurity chief, Chris Krebs, was on the job. Why aren’t the media pointing a finger at him? You might recognize him from his testimony yesterday, when he was not asked about this attack but was allowed to squeal about how secure our 2020 elections were. Krebs also announced in November that the 2020 elections were the most secure in all of American history. Perhaps he isn’t very good at his job, evidenced by this massive hack that occurred on his watch.

“There is a feeling of widespread dread in the national security community,” the former official said. CNN reported that the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce and Homeland Security were affected and the Washington Post tabloid reported that the Treasury Department also fell victim to the cyberattack.

“It’s knowable, but it takes a fair amount of forensic work” to know the full extent of the intrusions, former National Security Agency general counsel Glenn Gerstell said. “It’s going to take a long time.”
“The problem is that until we know exactly what they did and what they had access to, you can’t do something other than metaphorically unplug the system,” Gerstell added. “That’s a big problem, that’s not a mitigation, you don’t apply a patch and it’s fixed.”
