Seven months ago HBO released a documentary that some may find relevant. Below please find is its trailer. The surprise this fellow evinces matches my own over the last few months, studying the security of our election infrastructure. I first began looking at it thinking, “Where is the vulnerability? At what weak spot might it be attacked?” It turns out that the answer is, “Everywhere. Just… everywhere. The whole system is a soup of vulnerabilities. An 8th grader could hack this shit.” Watch this two minute trailer and you will begin to get the idea.
And yes, I know that the esteemed Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Christopher Krebs (a lawyer) has come out and said that this was the most secure election in US history. Krebs is either an idiot or he is lying, and if he is lying it is either out of embarrassment at what he let happen or he is captured. I openly challenge him to appear on any news show he chooses to debate the subject with me. I don’t care if it is with Rachel Maddow refereeing: in four minutes there will be nothing left of the fool’s credibility but a greasy spot.
Put differently, HBO was correct.
