Obama Inc. Planned To Deploy Troops To Polling Places

by Daniel Greenfield: This is the sort of thing you expect from Venezuela. But it almost happened under our last left-wing regime.
President Obama’s White House quietly produced a plan in October to counter a possible Election Day cyber attack that included extraordinary measures like sending armed federal law enforcement agents to polling places, mobilizing components of the military and launching counter-propaganda efforts.

The plan allowed for the deployment of “armed federal law enforcement agents” to polling places if hackers managed to halt voting. It also foresaw the deployment of “Active and Reserve" military forces and members of the National Guard “upon a request from a federal agency and the direction of the Secretary of Defense or the President.”
There is a mention in the plan that it's illegal for armed Federal personnel to set up shop in a polling place. And any talk of deploying troops around an election would be a Weimar signpost and deeply distrubing. There is also no concievable call for it. It's reasonable for the FBI to participate in on-site investigations of hacking incidents. No amount of hacking would require the deployment of the military unless the goal is to reverse the results of an election. With all the expected rioting that would occur.

And that does ring some major alarm bells.

The only reasons you need that kind of deployment is to manage the social dysfunction after a natural disaster or political unrest. This sounds like political unrest was anticipated.
