The Department of Homeland Security’s cyber chief, who presided over an elaborate election security effort guarding against foreign interference and fraud, was ousted by President Donald Trump on Tuesday as part of a continuing post-election purge of top national security officials.
Trump announced the dismissal in two tweets Tuesday night. Twitter flagged both tweets with labels saying, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
The dismissal of Christopher Krebs, director of DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, follows the agency’s declaration that the general election was the most secure in U.S. history.
If it’s the most secure in history, then why did Nevada have to throw out the results in a local election due to fraud?
…votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more. Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

“Most secure in history” is literally “the big lie.”
They could have said something like “mostly secure.” Instead they made the ridiculous claim that voting by mail is somehow more secure than voting in person.
At this point, it doesn’t really matter what they say, as no one on the right has even a fraction of a molecule of faith in this system. They crashed all of that hundreds of years of built-up good will in one morning.
Their greatest hope is that the masses of people will just have their souls crushed by this hoax, and give up.
Instead, the people are going to lose it.
Only in this peasant revolt, we have the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States at the helm…
