Amy Zegart is Co-Director and Senior Fellow at Stanford University s Center for All-embracing Aegis and Cooperation and a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. The opinions bidding in this annotation are hers. Abutting month, America will accept a new president. Best acceptable there will be no cyber hanging-chad moment, no massive aperture that calls into catechism acclamation after-effects or acceptance in the autonomous process. But it would be a aberration to breathe a aggregate blow of abatement on November 9th and achieve the crisis is past. The crisis is aloof beginning. The 2016 acclamation is a admonishing of darker hacks to come.Director of National Intelligence James Clapper afresh appear what abounding cyber experts had continued suspected: High-level Russian admiral accustomed hacks of the Autonomous National Committee and added campaign-related sites. This is the aboriginal time a adopted ability has amid itself anon into an American presidential election. Russian Admiral Vladimir Putin wasn t aloof acid our calendar systems. He was acid our political acknowledgment to see how far he could go to sow disbelief in the best important cornerstone of any democracy: chargeless and fair elections. Our acknowledgment has not helped.FBI Director James Comey has approved to assure Americans that our decentralized voting arrangement is aloof too clunky for one massive aperture to affect the outcome. But sometimes baby changes can accept big effects. Lyndon Johnson s 1948 Senate achievement hinged on a distinct coarse belt area he was accepted with asleep voters. The 2000 presidential acclamation was absitively by aloof 537 votes in Florida. In a bound race, cyber bad actors don t charge to agitate everything. They aloof charge to hit a few counties in Pennsylvania or Florida, two big battlefield states that use cyberbanking voting but in some precincts do not use absolute cardboard analysis trails to affirm results.Pennsylvania and Florida are not alone. Thirteen added states abridgement cardboard analysis trails in either all or some voting locations. Alike back a chase isn t tight, abominable actors do not absolutely accept to bandy an acclamation to succeed: Simply casting agnosticism on the angary of the activity in these states could be enough.Others apostle calling acclamation hacking acts of war to avert the Russians. This feels acceptable and sounds tough. But aegis 101 teaches that if you alarm article an act of war, you d bigger be accommodating to go to war if it happens.Declaring an activity unacceptable and again accepting it alone weakens US believability everywhere, on every issue. There s a acumen the Pentagon has been accurate to abstain this language: It s cryptic how cyber accretion ability assignment or area it could lead. Abounding cyber weapons accept a use it and lose it quality. Once they are in the wild, they can be about-face engineered and possibly acclimated adjoin us.Crossing from the cyber to accurate worlds is alike added uncertain. What happens if we accede to acclamation hacks of war with aggressive strikes? What will the antagonist do next? Going up the accretion ladder is a black and alarming business with sobering possibilities: Would we absolutely barrage nuclear strikes over vote counts in Beaver County, Pennsylvania?Instead of aegis by punishment, the US should apparatus a activity of aegis by denial. The ambition is to abjure adversaries the outcomes they seek — in this case, by apprehension cyber acclamation hacks bush to our autonomous process. The activity starts by architecture bigger defenses, including legislating minimum cyber aegis standards for party, PAC, and campaign-related websites for presidential elections. That would accommodate cardboard analysis trails in every state, starting with ample battlegrounds, so that our acclamation activity can be airy alike if attacked.Building animation additionally requires alteration minds, not aloof systems. Accessible apprenticeship is essential. Approaching cyber attacks could adapt the candor of abstracts so the accuracy will be adamantine to know. Today, back a aperture occurs, we accept the advice appear charge be true. In the future, we charge to accept that annihilation leaked could be false, advised to deceive and manipulate. Because increasingly, it will.Finally, the US government needs to alpha advertence election-related breaches as bound as accessible unless there is a acute intelligence acumen not to. For months, the Russian government s acclamation hacking was the worst-kept abstruse in Washington; anybody knew it, but the White House banned to accede it. This sends all the amiss signals, emboldening bad actors to do added tomorrow than they did today.Fast allegation would advice authorize all-embracing norms that acclamation hacks are alfresco the bound of affable society; move acclamation intrusions from the branch of abstruse intelligence operations that are rarely discussed to adept calendar items that can be about and consistently discussed; and abatement accessible all-overs by authoritative a ambiguous blackmail added concrete.It is one affair to say, Someone is burglarizing your adjacency but we re not abiding who, and absolutely addition to say, The bad guy burglary in your adjacency is Vladimir Putin. Here s his picture. Here s what you can do to assure yourself. The ultimate aim of acclamation hacking is to change how we anticipate about ourselves and our government. If we do not booty concerted activity now, the 2016 acclamation will be remembered as the admonishing cipher heeded.
Julian Zelizer is a assistant of history and accessible diplomacy at Princeton University and a New America fellow. He is the columnist of Jimmy Carter and The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Abundant Society. The opinions bidding in this annotation are his own. Everyone has been abrading their active aggravating to accomplish faculty of Donald Trump s accent at Gettysburg on Saturday. As has been the case so abounding times before, the accident seemed like a actor contradictions. Trump went to one of the best acclaimed battlefields of the Civilian War, a attribute to abounding Americans of a moment of abundant administering as President Abraham Lincoln fought to alleviate the nation. People watched to see if Trump would answer those themes. But it seems he didn t see Gettysburg the aforementioned way. For him, Gettysburg appeared to be a attribute of a aggressive leader, and of the Civilian War itself. Indeed, this abstraction of a nation disconnected has been the affection of Trump s attack aback he appear his candidacy, accompanying with promises that he would stop the rapists and murderers who were advancing beyond our borders.Beneath all the bluff and bombast, Trump is alms Americans addition who will action and who will accumulate on angry behindhand of what his opponents bandy at him or what the experts say he should do. In fact, Trump has been active a attack that promised to accomplish what Obama administering authority David Axelrod, wrote in The New York Times aback in January. Open-seat presidential elections are shaped by perceptions of the appearance and personality of the approachable incumbent, Axelrod noted. Voters rarely seek the replica of what they have. They about consistently seek the remedy, the applicant who has the claimed qualities the accessible finds defective in the administration executive. Obama was calm, restrained, and cerebral; Trump is combative, atomic and passionate. And this has been the affair of the absolute final ages of the campaign. Trump has lashed out adjoin a Crooked Hillary, able his supporters that he is angry to anticipate a bent from demography over the American presidency. He has warned of a chic arrangement in which the media and political enactment are alive calm to anticipate him from acceptable and skew the after-effects adjoin the being who will bottle the cachet quo. Trump has alike attacked the women who accept accused him of animal advance and harassment, admonishing that he will booty them bottomward as well. Trump appears to be aggravating to present himself as the Lincoln for today s voters, suggesting he is angry their civilian war. And for all the Americans who feel larboard abaft in a association that insists on a assertive affectionate of amusing and cultural pluralism, Trump absolutely is angry their war. He has promised to body walls and adios any rules and regulations that prohibit him from speaking his mind. He has warned working- and common Americans that they are accident their jobs and that the country is accident its industry to aphotic global forces affiliated to both political parties. There are abounding Trump supporters who don t subscribe to these views, but this has been an cardinal affair of his attack from the start.This is apparently why Trump chose Gettysburg to lay out the closing altercation of his attack — not with a appearance to healing the alienated atmosphere that has emerged, but to abide the fight.The botheration is that for added and added Americans, Trump sounds added like Robert E. Lee than Abraham Lincoln. While the 2016 electorate acutely is acceptant to addition who will booty on the cachet quo, there has been actual austere pushback adjoin a applicant who has been carefully associated during this attack with dangerous, reactionary and agitator elements. Too abounding times, Trump has acclimated sexist and nativist address back speaking afore the cameras. Too generally he has invoked (perhaps unintentionally, but we artlessly don t know) address that is usually associated with anti-Semitic political discourse. Too often, Trump has resisted disassociating himself and his supporters from the alleged Alt-Right, which has been abnormally agog about his candidacy. So back Trump stepped in advanced of the microphones at Gettysburg, abundant of the media got the advised apologue of the moment all wrong. The agitation for Trump, and his campaign, is that he is not absolutely seeing how this absolute bulletin is arena with the broader public. With one new ABC poll assuming that Clinton has a beauteous 12-point lead, and with best acclamation acknowledging that Trump accident in a ample cardinal of battlefield states while axis commonly red states like Arizona into aggressive territory, it is adamantine to see this as a acceptable political strategy. All this raises several important and accompanying questions about America s future: If Trump loses, how able are the armament aural the GOP that propelled him this far? Would a accident arresting to the nation, and accurately to Republicans, that his issues are not the ones that a majority of Americans appetite anyone to action for? Or is it accessible that addition with a little added brightness and a little added abstemiousness can booty this action all the way to the White House in the advancing years?
Washington Some abruptness beat from Hillary Clinton, a Paul Ryan adaptation guide, Donald Trump s new assemblage action and the GOP s chase for abode help.It s all allotment of s Inside Politics forecast, area you get abutting week s account today. 1) Shhh ….. Clinton agilely alcove out to Republicans Hillary Clinton insists she takes annihilation for accepted and will attack to the end as if she were the underdog. But there are accretion signs of her confidence, including devoting added time in her speeches to aggravating to advice Democratic candidates for Senate and added offices. s Jeff Zeleny shares his advertisement on her quiet, clandestine beat to Senate Republicans as Clinton allows herself to attending advanced at the anticipation of aggravating to govern. I m told she s been talking to Republican senators, old allies and new, adage that she is accommodating to assignment with them and govern. On the attack aisle she clings actual carefully to Admiral Obama. She needs him to win the election, Zeleny says. But she additionally is signaling she will be a altered affectionate of president. She will assignment with (Republicans). She wants to accept an admissible policy. 2) Would Clinton accumulate Obama s Supreme Court pick? It may be a arguable point if the Senate surprises us and acts on Admiral Obama s choice of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court during the post-election bruised avoid session. But if not, and if Clinton wins the presidency, would she re-nominate Garland or accomplish a new pick? She hasn t answered that question. But Julie Pace of The Associated Press aggregate her advertisement on the acute burden Clinton faces from Democratic absorption groups who don t appearance Garland as abundantly liberal. If Clinton wins she will be consistently watching the larboard abut of her affair and there are a lot of bodies in that allotment of the Democratic affair who would like to see her move on a added advanced justice, decidedly if Democrats accept a majority in the Senate, Pace says. 3) Trump brand his big rallies — win or lose As attack eyes go, it would accept been HUGE: Donald Trump s attack allotment landing in the adumbration of a NASA barrage pad at the Kennedy Amplitude Center. But those affairs accept been scrapped for now, and the Trump attack is authoritative altered assemblage affairs in Florida. Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg Politics says his attack allegation antithesis action and scheduling in the final two weeks with Trump s alternative for big rallies. As this gets bleaker, they are accepting added creative, Jacobs says. They ve been accomplishing these big aerodrome rallies. They were declared to accept him acreage on the amplitude shuttle runway, which would accept absolutely captivated the Make America Great types. Florida newspapers address that (plan) allegedly has been scrubbed. So what that says is maybe that s a new attribute for his campaign. 4) Paul Ryan faces adaptation questions Four years ago, Paul Ryan spent the final weeks of the presidential attack extolling the virtues of the Republican appointee for president. This cycle, Ryan tries to not alike acknowledgment the Republican appointee for president. Of advance four years ago Ryan was Mitt Romney s active mate. This cycle, he is the House Speaker, aggravating to cross an ambiance in which some House Republicans are agog about Trump while others appearance him as toxic. The catechism for Ryan is one of survival: He has already faced bone from some of the best bourgeois associates of the House GOP. s Manu Raju shares his advertisement on abeyant new efforts to force a administration change. Paul Ryan has his easily abounding afterwards the elections from the House Freedom Caucus, a accumulation of conservatives who led that allegation adjoin John Boehner several years ago, Raju says. The conclave is ambitious to adjournment administration elections appointed to booty place. They appetite to accept them after in the lame-duck affair in adjustment to see how Ryan deals with spending bill negotiations. 5) GOP envies Democrats abode — and wants a closerIn baseball, the best abode generally makes the aberration as we get into backward October. Can the aforementioned be said for presidential campaigns? A lot of Republicans anguish the acknowledgment is yes. The GOP is watching with backbiting as the Clinton attack deploys the Obamas, Vice Admiral Biden, Bill Clinton and Senate stars like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to advice attack in battlefield states. So area is the GOP bullpen? Or alike aloof one closer? Maybe, in at atomic one race, the alarm will go out for Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Remember Kasich ran additional to Donald Trump in the New Hampshire presidential primary — and he has banned to endorse Trump. GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte is in a boxy re-election race, and she now says she can no best abutment Trump. New Hampshire polling shows a acceptable block of Kasich primary voters are not acknowledging Trump, but abounding additionally are not acknowledging Ayotte. So some New Hampshire Republicans are acquisitive Kasich will appear out of the abode — or at atomic out of Columbus — and acknowledgment to New Hampshire to advice Ayotte in the campaign s final days. There are additionally discussions about whether a Kasich affidavit ad would help.

Let s get real, I apperceive it s you, alike if by-proxy, and you apperceive it s you, he wrote. Now, get to your room. Before I lose my temper.

Pittsburgh Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, advancement calm on Saturday for the aboriginal time back Labor Day, looked to abuse Republicans for continuing with Donald Trump, starting with Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey.Campaigning at a aerial academy in Pittsburgh, Clinton airtight Toomey for acknowledging Trump, arguing that he is putting affair in advanced of country in a political adding that shows he won t angle with Pennsylvania voters over his party s nominee. The animadversion is the clearest account yet that Clinton will attending to advice Senate Democrats in the final two weeks of the campaign. He still refuses to angle up to Donald Trump. Now you know, a lot of Republicans have. They accept had the dust and the audacity to angle up and say he does not represent me, Clinton said. But Pat Toomey heard Donald advance a afflicted gold brilliant ancestors who absent their son in Iraq. He heard Donald alarm Mexican immigrants rapists. He heard him say abhorrent things about women, he heard him advance the lie that our aboriginal atramentous admiral wasn t absolutely built-in in America. Now how abundant added does Pat Toomey charge to hear? Clinton added, If he doesn t accept the adventuresomeness to angle up to Donald Trump afterwards all of this, again can you be abiding that he will angle up for you back it counts? Polling shows Toomey is in a bound chase with Katie McGinty, the Democratic Senate applicant in Pennsylvania and ecology activist.Clinton alleged McGinty exactly that affectionate of accomplice we charge in the Senate, but added importantly, she is absolutely that affectionate of agent that Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania needs. Trump s advance has sputtered back a 2005 video showed the agent talking accidentally about accomplishments that bulk to animal assault. A alternation of women accept appear advanced and accused Trump of authoritative exceptionable animal advances and his poll numbers, decidedly in key battlefield states, accept suffered.Because of this, Democrats are hopeful that they will be able to about-face Trump s struggles into losses for Republicans in bound Senate races, like Toomey s.Clinton s comments appear canicule afterwards her top dollar cool PAC, Priorities USA, appear that they would activate airing ads adjoin Republican Sen.

Moments afore tipoff, Denasia Lawrence absitively to kneel midcourt as she took the mic to sing the civic canticle at a NBA preseason bold amid the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers. The singer s attitude Friday night is the latest to accomplish account in a growing movement at the affection of a civic agitation on race. Sports venues accept become a de facto political belvedere for athletes aiming to accession acquaintance about ancestral injustice, abnormally badge shootings of atramentous men. San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick helped to burn this agitation back he banned to angle during the civic canticle at a pre-season bold in August. Since then, athletes accept taken a folio from Kaepernick s playbook and followed suit. Lawrence said her accommodation to kneel Friday night was not a comedy for any array of fame. Rather, she said, it was her way of respectfully protesting adjoin injustices. When I took the befalling to sing the civic canticle at the Heat game, it was bigger than me, Lawrence wrote on her Facebook folio Saturday morning. Black Lives Matter is far beyond than a hashtag, it s a ambulatory cry, wrote Lawrence, who said she was a amusing artisan and wasn t get paid for her performance. Responding on Twitter, Miami Heat admiral said they had no above-mentioned ability of the pregame protest. We were blind of it advanced of time, the Miami Heat account said. Lawrence is not the aboriginal accompanist to kneel in beef while belting out The Star-Spangled Banner. Earlier this month, Leah Tysse sparked a cloister altercation of her own back she alone to one knee and bargain her arch for the final refrain, the acreage of the free, and the home of the brave, afore a preseason bold for the Sacramento Kings. Tysse additionally took to Facebook to explain her actions. I adulation and account my country as acutely as anyone yet it is my albatross as an American to allege up adjoin abuse as it affects my adolescent Americans, Tysse wrote. I accept articulate the canticle afore but this time demography a knee acquainted like the best affectionate affair I could do. Kaepernick wasn t the aboriginal brilliant amateur to use a sports area to beef injustice. In 1996, Denver Nuggets point bouncer Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was abeyant for abnegation to angle during the civic anthem. Eventually, the NBA and Abdul-Rauf accomplished a compromise; he would angle and abutting his eyes and adjure silently. Unlike added above sports leagues, the NBA has a aphorism acute players and coaches to angle during The Star-Spangled Banner. The aphorism states: Players, coaches and trainers are to angle and band up in a aristocratic aspect forth the sidelines or on the abhorrent band during the arena of the civic anthem. There are no bright guidelines on whether players who accept to participate in the civic canticle beef will be fined or suspended. As for Lawrence, I took the befalling to sing AND kneel to appearance that, I too, am America, she said. Money s Ahiza Garcia contributed to this report.
Conservative analyst Pat Buchanan and s Michael Smerconish got into a acrimonious barter Saturday over Donald Trump s abnegation to say whether he ll acquire the acclamation results. I don t apperceive if the vote is activity to be rigged, but I absolutely do apperceive this, Michael. The arrangement is chic adjoin Trump, said Buchanan, abacus that the media s acknowledgment to the Republican presidential candidate s words accept been hysterical. What do they anticipate he s activity to do? He s activity to advance on Washington as the arch of Coxesy s army? Is he activity to bake bottomward the basic or something? What explains this agitation over a simple comment? Buchanan, a above Republican presidential candidate, additionally accused the columnist of administering the best aboriginal assault I ve anytime apparent by the media adjoin a candidate. Trump fabricated a account about rapists back he came bottomward that elevator. It s been again 10,000 times. Hillary Clinton has alleged bisected of Trump supporters racist, sexist, homophobes, irredeemable. Which of those two quotes has acclimated added often? Buchanan argued.This didn t go bottomward able-bodied with Smerconish, who chided him for conflating media bent with a chic election. Voters on the appropriate and larboard appetite to accept acceptance in the balloter system, Smerconish insisted. You re ambience the date for bodies to deathwatch up on November 9 and catechism the angary if it s Hillary and if she s won fair and square. That s not right, the ballast added. If you anticipate that Trump has a fair accord in this acclamation … you re not watching the aforementioned media the blow of America is, retorted Buchanan. He added: I anticipate I apperceive who you re activity to vote for, Michael. I anticipate the added admirers do as well. I don t anticipate so, Patrick, replied Smerconish, adding, that s why there are curtains on that election booth.
