US officials raise alarm about 2018, 2020 election security

There are 118 comments on the KSWO story from Aug 2, 2018, titled US officials raise alarm about 2018, 2020 election security. In it, KSWO reports that:

President Donald Trump has directed a "vast, government-wide effort" to protect American elections after Russian attempts to interfere in 2016, the White House said Thursday. Responding to bipartisan criticism that it has no clear national strategy to protect the country during the upcoming midterms and beyond, John Bolton, the national security adviser, wrote in a letter to Senate Democrats that "President Trump has not and will not tolerate interference in America's system of representative government."

It is quite interesting to me that the socialist Putin is trying to devide Americans, and so are the socialists(“democrats”), in our nation as well?

Before the elections the Democrats claimed, in spite of the high number of illegally registered voters and the inability to verify the identity of anybody casting a vote as well as very real concerns from cyber security experts about computerized voting and voter database security that it was not possible to manipulate the elections.
The Republicans on the other hand were working to secure our voting process with voter ID laws and voter registration cross checking but were being blocked at every attempt by Democrats. Now as the Democrats are being voted into obscurity they are concerned about the integrity of the process. Not about the fraud that has been existing for years but about "Russians" posting opinions online under the guise of being Americans and possibly trying to hack political targets.The fact that has been downplayed is that Russians and others attempted to hack Republicans but proper security and vigilant administrators and users prevented it. On the other hand the Democrats who "off shore" their IT functions and as the Hillary email scandal highlighted do not even follow basic government computer security policies, were easily hacked and their dirty secrets reveled. Of course we are supposed to be concerned with the fact they were hacked, over looking the fact that it was due to their incompetence and arrogance, and not the dirt exposed.

Actually Putin and gang are laughing their asses off at us(US). For less than,what(?),$ 1 million they owed seeds of dissent about the election without changing one vote. Now we have libs screaming WOLF!!! everytime you turn around. Those "sky is falling" fools LET this crap happen...... UNTIL Hillary lost. Now they want election security..... Hey fools.... The freaking horse left the f**king barn TWO YEARS AGO. NOW you want to close the door? Don't bother..... You set the barn on fire trying to stop the damn HORSE.

I swear..... We got stupid libs by the freaking BUSHEL.

The Democrats are raising the Election Fixing flag, because their internals tell them they are going to lose big time in November at a historic time they should be winning. They have to have some excuse for their incompetence. It couldn't possibly be because they have no real candidates. Socialists won't be elected. So, the Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! is their cry. If they truly wanted election integrity they would ask for Voter Photo I D. God forbid!!!

The libs see no need forvoter ID becaue:1) that would disrupt their plan to replace citizen voters with illegals and 2) with their end game being NO elections,rather have Panels/Boards/Party Conventions designate people to offices.

Putin could not have done a better job of discrediting a government and inciting the lunatic fringe of the left than what the Democrats and the media are doing.

I was beginning to believe their rhetoric about doing well in the November Elections until Jake Tapper, one of their own was lamenting over the fact Obama was here there, and every where, but not campaigning for the Dems at a time when they are, quote, "weakest since the 1920s." unquote. So maybe they are lying about doing so well.

The funny thing about the press conference was

where was donald?

to busy on his twitter account?

his staff didn't trust him to stay on message?

no one would believe him when he warns of Russian interference or the room would just crack up laughing that he is taking it seriously

maybe they just didn't tell him about the conference and since he doesn't watch fake news it was all good.

Which is it? The Russians fixed the 2016 election? Or the Russians didn't change one vote in the 2016 election? The MSM cannot seem to make up their minds. I do know I didn't wait for instructions from the Russians. I followed my candidates, discovered what they stood for, and went to vote. That is what I have always done, and what I will always do. So I already know who I will vote for in November, local state, and National elections.

Libs have a simple formula for who to vote for..... They shove a finger up their ass then stick out their tongues to check the wind direction and finally listen to MSNBC/CNN on who the networks know will win and vote accordingly........

Why have elections at all?
Go to communism, it’s where we are all created equal.
We all have nothing, and our leader takes it all for himself.
These greedy people that work for wealth, in a capitalist society, are just no good!

Ask the people of Cuba or the former Soviet Union if all are equal.

As in the case with ANYTHING or ANYWHERE, some are more equal than others....

Come on, don’t you think we should all be treated miserably, equally?
With socialism, we can all be brain dead robots with no freedoms, doesn’t this sound like a better life?

There's no law against anyone applying political adds in social media. And there was no one at my voting booth telling me how to vote. However I do remember the news media trying everything to convince me that I should vote for Hillary. But I didn't.
