DHS: " NBC Continues To Falsely Report" On Russian Hacking

NBC reports that "the US official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several US states prior to the 2016 presidential election."

The US official in charge says "NBC continues to falsely report on Russian hacking, misrepresenting facts to confuse the public."

This, of course, in the run-up to the 2018 elections, which the media and the far Left are desperate to win.

Who do we believe? Here's a closer look.

NBC is relentlessly reporting that the Department of Home Land Security is reporting that "Russians targeted '21 states' voter registration rolls during the 2016 election."

"Of those," they report, "a 'small number' were successfully penetrated, according to a Homeland Security Department official tasked with protecting elections from hacking threats."

The "official" they are talking about is Jeanette Manfra, National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) Assistant Secretary for the Office of Cybersecurity and Communications.

While NBC periodically says "there is no evidence that any states' voter registration rolls were tampered with," their implicit message is that Russia influenced the 2016 election---because they may have tried to do so---because that's the way NBC and other news organizations want it to be.

Jeanette Manfra is having none of it.

Manfra says in no uncertain terms:

“First off, let me be clear: we have no evidence – old or new - that any votes in the 2016 elections were manipulated by Russian hackers.
“NBC News continues to falsely report my recent comments on attempted election hacking – which clearly mirror my testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last summer – as some kind of “breaking news,” incorrectly claiming a shift in the administration’s position on cyber threats.
“As I said eight months ago, a number of states were the target of Russian government cyber actors seeking vulnerabilities and access to U.S. election infrastructure. In the majority of cases, only preparatory activity like scanning was observed, while in a small number of cases, actors were able to access the system but we have no evidence votes were changed or otherwise impacted.”

And she said, "NBC’s irresponsible reporting, which is being roundly criticized elsewhere in the media and by security experts alike, undermines the ability of the Department of Homeland Security, our partners at the Election Assistance Commission, and state and local officials across the nation to do our incredibly important jobs. While we’ll continue our part to educate NBC and others on the threat, more importantly, the Department of Homeland Security and our state and local partners will continue our mission to secure the nation’s election systems."

All elections are important to a free society. And all citizens have a responsibility to vote.

And we all want to believe our elections reflect the will of "We the People."

The 2018 elections are of particular importance because record amounts of money is already being spent to put the far Left in the majority---particularly in Congress.

And the Left is laser-focused in their effort to undermine the presidency of President Trump and ultimately defeat him in 2020.

Who are we to believe? The government? Or the media? Are the elections rigged?

I'm talking more about this on our live radio program this morning. We are sharing a Scriptural approach to being informed and using discernment regarding these and other important matters.

You may join me live at 9 AM PST, from anywhere in the world on your phone, your computer or on the radio. Here's how.

Consider this: "The simple believes every word, But the prudent considers well his steps" (Proverbs 14:15).

And this: "A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished" (Proverbs 27:12).

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.


  1. The biggest threat I see in Spokane is the massive phone calling machine the Democrat Progressives and their union allies have established. In local elections last year, I believe a "smear campaign" was launched from the left verbally conveying damaging, untrue information to voters. This needs to be confirmed, but we here are very concerned that too many voters are believing unproven "rumors" spread over the phone from unseen operatives who present themselves and their information as fact when they really are deceiving citizens. Candidates on our side must recognize such threats and answer them quickly with truth!

  2. No, I don't feel as safe when I hear of other nations being falsely accused by news media from our own country. What is this now, media ISIS or something? Does anyone know?

  3. and always has been the most effective, and almost exclusively used, means by which to control the masses. Everything from Russia hacking to rising oceans from C02 are designed to mold the opinions of the citizens of the West, and all nations, to be fine with extra taxes to fight the giant threat and re-distribution of wealth on a Global scale. All this fits the "globalist" initiative to bring all nations into relative parity so the eventual transfer of soverignity to a world leader will be less abrupt.

    "Hacking' is a word used often, but by design it is not well defined. One report many have forgotten regarding "hacking" is that our own CIA has created programs that can allow them to hack foreign governments or anyone they like and leave a trail that makes it look like the hack came from a different country. Also it was reported that these programs were hacked on a global scale by others...likely including Russia, North Korea, etc. during the Hillary/Obama tenure. Couple this with the true facts that reveal massive corrupt and illegally implemented bias on the part of the FBI, DOJ, and the CIA, and trusting either the media OR Government departmental leaderhip is a risky practice.

    Our elected / appointed officials realize have come to understand they will not be held accountable for their bold lies, manipulation behind the scenes to destroy political opponents, twisting or truth to reward their bias, and general corruption of all kinds. This can change only if the majority of the America people rise up and demand "truth" on all levels, and through prayer. Holding evil accountable is a dirty business that is difficult and costly.

    In truth, it remains to be seen if Americans will stand up for their country in solidarity or sheepishly fold to power of the "discrimination" mantra and leftism promoting the destruction of our culture and nationalism (love of country), and the embrace of socialism as 'world citizens' preparing to bow to the totalitarian world government that is coming like a freight train.

    Truth is a lonely warrior....

    PRAY....ask our Lord to forgive our weakness, our selfishness, our cowardice, and for allowing our nation to turn away from Him and His truth; then ask that His Holy Spirit would come and heal our land by instilling the courage, comittment, and love that Christ told us to embrace.

    Truth is a lonely warrior...

  4. There is a Marxist hidden agenda going on to undermine and even overthrow America.
