The news is out: [The country’s top counterintelligence official says that multiple foreign adversaries are actively targeting the November election in a variety of ways, from launching influence campaigns in social and traditional media, to targeting election infrastructure, to attempting to compromise the private communications of political officials.
“At this time, we’re primarily concerned with China, Russia and Iran, although other nation-states and non-state actors could also do harm to our electoral process,” Bill Evanina, National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director, said in a statement Friday. “Our insights and judgments will evolve as the election season progresses.”
“Foreign efforts to influence or interfere with our elections are a direct threat to the fabric of our democracy,” said Evanina, a career official who has served as NCSC Director since 2014. He was tasked with personally briefing relevant stakeholders – including Congress, political campaigns and candidates – on election security earlier this year.]
This country is incapable of any decent election process. One can see that everything is being done to make sure “your vote counts.” As for me, I will be home, as I must attend to my pregnant chickens and coach them. It’s better than wasting my time to join countless of idiots re-electing morons, year after year.
