Amid National Turmoil, DHS Secretary Ensures Mundane Midterm

Kirstjen Nielsen has a powerful message for Americans as they prepare to hit the polls.

2018 election

Americans the nation over are living on the edge of their seats, so to speak, as the national mood turns ever more tense by the hour.

Of course, we can thank the mainstream media for a great deal of this inner turmoil and our feelings of impending doom.  You can’t take a peek at a 24-hour news station without seeing a multitude of chyrons, graphics, and assorted distorted faces, all counting down the hours until Americans cast their ballot and begin to stare down the possibilities of the next 2 years.

For the democrats, a big win could signal the end of the Trump Era with impeachment looming on the horizon of the half-drained swamp.  For the republicans, their focus is on maintaining in the face of a political storm the likes of which Washington has never seen.

Throw in a dash of voter fraud and you have yourself a potent stew a’brewin’.

No fear, says the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, however.  Things will be just fine.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Friday she believes the midterm elections will be the “most secure election in the modern era” but told Fox News in an exclusive interview that “everything is on the table” if others try to meddle with the vote.

In New York City for a cyber security event at the Council on Foreign Relations, Nielsen said the government is in a “tremendously different place” than in 2016, when the Russians attempted to interfere in the presidential election.

“I do think it’s safe to stay this will be the most secure election in the modern era,” Nielsen said. “We are in a tremendously different place than we were in 2016 in terms of partnerships with state and locals and everything they have done to secure their infrastructure.”

Pressed on whether a cyber response is being readied by the United States if attacked, Nielsen said, “Everything is on the table. I think the president has made it very clear if we are attacked we will defend ourselves so every element of power that we have available to us will be considered in terms of our response.”

Concerns over election hacking have been heightened in recent years due to democratic fear mongering on the subject of Russia.

Ironically, those concerns do not seem to translate into the broader issues of voter fraud, to which the democratic response has often been indifference.

Black Lives Matter Activists And Pro-Cop Group Get In Confrontation In Brooklyn

Published

Pro-police activists clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters over the weekend in Bay Bridge Brooklyn, which happens to be an area where a lot of law enforcement officers tend to live. Videos of the incident were plastered all over social media over Saturday and Sunday, which featured a number of brawls exploding between the “Back the Blue” group and BLM activists on Fourth Avenue and 65th Street. Things got so heated that police were required to put a stop to things. Five individuals were arrested. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Massive police presence in Bay Ridge. Bike police shove the crowd, but the protesters do not disperse,” tweeted NYC Protest Updates 2020 (@protest_nyc). One video features an officer being hit with an egg, and other videos show protesters blocking a police vehicle with an arrested BLM protester inside from moving through a crowd. However, the fracas escalated when one BLM protester’s confrontation with an NYPD officer ended with the protester being tased, handcuffed, and arrested. “The NYPD no longer enforces the law. Cops are NOT allowed to make these arrest because Mayor DeBlasio prohibits arrest & encourages attacks, calling it peaceful protests he lies. When NYPD retreats the violence will come to YOU the people. BEWARE you’ve been WARNED!,” Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, tweeted Sunday. New York City Councilman Justin Brannan who is a representative for the area spoke out against the violence on Twitter. He also announced he’ll meet with the NYPD at the 60th precinct to talk about the constant protests and the NYPD response. Things are getting so out of hand all across our great nation. People are so divided and full of hatred for one another. All of this is the result of propaganda pushed by the progressive movement who would…

Criminal Investigation Launched Into DA Who Charged Officers In Rayshard Brooks Shooting Expands

Published

The criminal investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, the man who is responsible for charging police officers involved in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, is being expanded by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, as new questions come to light concerning the grand jury subpoenas his office issued in the Brooks case. Chris Carr, Georgia Attorney General, asked the GBI to look further into Howard after Carr discovered information about the subpoenas. Here’s what we know so far via The Daily Wire: Howard issued grand jury subpoenas directing the Atlanta Police Department to turn over its “open investigation regarding Garrett Rolfe and the use of force incident.” Fox 5 Atlanta reports: The subpoena required that the documents be turned over for the “Grand Jury, June/July term on the of 14th day of July.” Other grand jury subpoenas were issued for phone and surveillance camera videos. Fox 5 reported that the subpoenas were issued while the grand jury was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The issuing of grand jury subpoenas while there is no grand jury could possibly be considered “an ethical or possibly criminal issue,” according to legal professionals interviewed by Fox 5. Gable Cino, a law professor who specializes in prosecutorial misconduct, spoke with the news network, saying, “It would be a violation of criminal law to make a knowingly false statement or misrepresentation in the subpoena which is a document that has been issued.” Howard is no stranger to controversy and possible corruption. The GBI had already launched an investigation into the district attorney earlier this year concerning a “mysterious salary supplement negotiated between Howard and then Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.” The negotiation directed a whopping $250,000 over a three-year period into a non-profit organization that was headed up by Howard’s office. Of that cash, Howard…
