Democrats Continued Attempts to Nationalize Elections

democrats

Democrats have become so desperate about their disappearing majorities that they have resorted to fake hysteria to justify trying to break the Senate and silencing millions of Americans’ voices in an effort to take over elections and ram through their radical agenda. They continue pushing three different pieces of election legislation, H.R. 1, H.R. 4, and the Manchin bill, all of which are just different flavors of Democrats’ attempts to nationalize elections to maintain power.

Fake Hysteria:

  • Democrats want to use fake hysteria to break the Senate and silence millions of Americans’ voices so they can take over elections and ram through their radical agenda.
  • According to polling, more Americans—including Independents—believe voting laws are too lax and insecure than those who believe they are too restrictive.
  • 2020 saw the highest turnout in 120 years and, according to Pew, 94% said it’s easy to vote. There’s clearly no widespread “voter suppression” issue in this country.
  • Georgia’s new quote “voter suppression law” has more days of early in-person voting than New York.
  • Texas’ quote “voter suppression law” ends pandemic exceptions like universal drive-thru voting and 24-hour voting. Neither existed in Texas before 2020. Neither widely exists even in blue states.


The Filibuster:

  • The filibuster is the only reason millions of Americans have any voice in the current government. Nuking the Senate would silence millions of citizens and entire states.
  • The filibuster prevents federal law swinging wildly with every election.
  • Sen. Schumer’s nuke push is not a response to the 2020 election or new state laws. As early as July 2019 and August 2020, Senator Schumer was already discussing nuking the filibuster, but only if he won control.
  • Voters gave President Biden the narrowest possible Senate majority and negative coattails in the House. Voters denied Democrats a sweeping mandate to transform anything. So, Sen. Schumer wants to break the rules to do it anyway.


H.R. 1, the For the Politicians Act:

  • Publicly funds campaigns. Creates a 6:1 funding match small donor contributions of $200 or less—meaning for every $200, the federal government would match $1,200. This funding would come from a surcharge on corporate and high taxpayer settlements with the Federal government. H.R. 1 also establishes a new voucher pilot program that grants eligible voters a $25 voucher to donate to any campaign of their choosing.
  • Makes “pandemic-style” election changes permanent. In 2020, states rushed to make changes in the name of COVID-19, like expanding mail-in voting without safeguards to protect ballot integrity. This created chaos, increased irregularities, and undermined public trust in our election process. H.R. 1 makes many of these changes permanent.
  • Disregards state voter identification laws and provisional ballot rules. Forces states to allow sworn statements to be used in place of identification and allowing for signature verification, which can be submitted through a photo if the voter registers online. Forces states to count provisional ballots cast outside of the voter’s correct precinct.
  • Imposes liberal California voting methods on every state. H.R. 1 would force states to permanently expand mail-in voting, legalize ballot harvesting, and disregard voter ID laws.
  • Weaponizes Biden’s IRS. H.R. 1 permits the agency to investigate and consider the political and policy persuasions of organizations before granting tax-exempt status.


H.R. 4, the Voting Rights Act:

  • Makes Merrick Garland the national “Elections Czar”. Transforms the AG into an unelected, unaccountable “Elections Czar” with the power to change state elections law and circumvent state constitutional processes.
  • National clearance for existing voter ID laws. Under H.R. 4, every State with a strict voter ID law would be required to submit their existing statutes to the Elections Czar for approval.
  • Makes it harder for States to maintain their voter lists. H.R. 4 imposes new restrictions on State efforts to keep their voter registration lists clean and accurate. For example, new participation in an inter-state registration check system would be prohibited.
  • Subjects every State to preclearance. H.R. 4’s practice-based preclearance provision would require every state and political subdivision to submit voter integrity laws for approval by bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. H.R. 4 also imposes a new formula designed to subject every State to preclearance for all election law changes.
  • Republicans celebrate progress since 1965 but Democrats ignore it. Despite years of claiming that Americans from minority communities face discriminatory forces at every turn, Democrats continue to be unable to present any evidence of voter suppression. Yet, minority voter turn-out is at record levels and voter registration is exceedingly high.


S. 2747, Manchin Bill (the Freedom to Vote Act):

  • Publicly funds campaigns. Creates a 6:1 funding match small donor contributions of $200 or less—meaning for every $200, the federal government would match $1,200.
  • Destroys the First Amendment and free speech. The Manchin bill would drastically limit free speech and impose vague standards that disadvantage all groups who wish to advocate on behalf of any legislative issue, specifically requiring them to disclose the names of donors who donate above a certain threshold.
  • Mandates automatic voter registration. DMVs and other entities would be required to report information for automatic voter registration without necessary safeguards, allowing for ineligible voters to be registered.
  • Requires same-day voter registration. States would be required to allow same-day registration, to allow for minimum 15 days of early voting, and to accept ballots received 7 days after election day.
  • Weakens list maintenance efforts. Restricts states’ ability to maintain voter rolls, which would allow ineligible people to cast ballots in many states.
  • Mandates specific early voting location and hours. Requires all states to operate specific early voting hours and to operate early voting polling places at mandated locations.

Do you have any evidence to back these claims? I want to see the actual evidence before making my opinion.

The same problem will be there if all elections are run by Republicans at the Federal Level. We need to treat every American citizen equal whether they vote Blue or Red. Stop this division in America.

It is very important that Democrats do not get rid of filibuster in Senate. That is CHECKS & BALANCES in place so that the majority party cannot pass any laws they want to while they are in power. Write or contact you representative today if you agree to keep the filibuster.

Spot on assessment sir…Jrb’s speech in Georgia should leave little doubt in anyone’s mind the man is losing it mentally…His dementia has reached the point of where his angriness really stands out every time he attempts to emphasize a point & typically that ” point ” he is trying to emphasize is more times than not an ” empty point ” as it gets lost in a fog of non-sensical gibberish, i.e., the man’s mind is shot, game over…
As to H.R. 1 & H.R. 2 ever passing muster, they had better not, for if they do, the Federal Gov’t will forevermore control ALL elections in the nation & the democrats will remain in power in perpetuity…
If it ever reaches this stage, America will have officially ceased to exist as a Freedom loving Republic under the guidance of the US Constitution…
To those that still don’t get it, I present to you nations such as Venezuela, Russia, China & a host of other Marxist, Communist, Socialist nations that rule with an iron fist over their people…
That said, now listen to your beloved president biden speak, he is angry, he insults anyone that chooses not to be vaccinated, he invokes fear & hysteria across this nation, he destroyed our energy independence on DAY ( 1 ) in office, he brought us 7% inflation & rising, he supports defunding the police, he is a racist, he brought us lockdowns, vaccine mandates, vaccine passports,
In a nutshell, the man is useless & dangerous at the same time…
JRB & his clueless VP are the personification of a stolen 2020 Presidential Election that every American has been forced to deal with on a daily basis as in one crisis after another crisis, then onto the next crisis, it has become a never ending nightmare with NO end in sight where this faux president is concerned & this spells the end of today’s rant from yours truly…
Trump won…
Bill… :~)

The marxist democrats sound desperate to shove their failed anti America hatred down Legal Citizens throats because they anticipate a CRUSHING DEFEAT in 2022 and 2024.
This group of traitors know We the People are coming to REMOVE them and Save Our Country from the corruption,dishonesty, destruction, lawlessness and immorality being illegally imposed on Citizens and their freedom.
Fact- this joebama,pelosi, schumer and ALL useless democrats approval rating is only 33%…..the LOWEST EVER!
Real Americans REJECT everything about the democrats and their destruction of Our Constitution and inalienable Rights and Freedom!
The marxist useless democrats WILL be overwhelmingly removed from relevance in the midterms and 2024.
Good riddance!

I agree–The Leftist Democrat leaders have become a danger to our Democracy and their fascist power grab needs to be blocked. If the Midterms don’t stop their tyranny, we need to call for an Article V, Convention of States.

You can bet your bottom dollar that any recommended voting related law offered by the Democrats has as its main purpose some voting control change that gives the Democrat Party an advantage legally or an an advantage in rigging the results to their favor illegally. The dominant and vital issue in the Democrats is to have only laws that at least given them a partisan advantage.

Be realistic & look at changes to election that Republicans have done or are proposing. Both parties are trying to slant voting laws in favor of their party. I blame both of them for this.

It is quite clear that Manchin is still a Democrat comrade. He has been trying to politic to convince Mountain Mama citizens to ignore the despicable and anti-American Democrat agenda and vote for him anyway. I hope WV citizens realize he is just a Commie lover doing what he thinks he has to do to retain power and subtly promote the progress arrow of the Democrats to a Communistic governance faked out to look like democracy.

Agree. . Enjoyed the article. I suspect it won’t be long before Manchin votes with Biden after being greased by Biden et. al. I hope this will not ring true. Also, I like so many others hope this sick but laughable Infrastructure bill stacked with Pork does not go through. The American people get little in return at such an outrageous cost to us. A closer look at this 10000-page bill which is not advertised, will reveal who really is benefiting, it will not be us the legal American citizens. In addition, If the filibuster goes through, we the LEGAL American people no longer have representation or a vote. Any Illegal/foreign country resident will be able to vote and control our country at our expense. Voting scams are running wild and ruining our country. Such fraud! Those in Congress voting for this bill or the filibuster should be ashamed, and these traitors need to be run out of office, placed in prison and kicked out of our Great Country for betraying our Constitution and the trust of the Legal American Citizens. These traitors no longer represent the Legal American citizens.

I hope Manchin does remain strong, but do not forget he is a Dem, but in a RED state. Even if he stays strong, the filibuster. if passed will usher in the Infrastructure PORK bill and all that is wrong and hurtful for our country. We lose our representation if this happens, Were Scummer and Biden some time ago opposed to a filibuster? How fast their tune changes when they can’t get what they want. We need to get those corrupt officials out of office NOW! This includes RINOS and Commie Dems!

Walter,
Keep exposing these anti American democrats and their self serving destruction of Our Country.
We must not let apathy or over confidence stop the Conservative Patriots from removing this marxist disease from America.

The Democrat Party continues unabashedly to force governance to give them advantages in rigging elections to their favor. Remember…. THE DEMOCRAPS SEEK TO RULE THE NATION .. NOT JUST GOVERN THE NATION. That policy tendency is a direct route to Communistic governance. The Democrats are not democratic in their policies, goals, and procedures. Look at what happened to Delunaware since their state politics went nigh 100% Democrap for many decades past. Lot of Delaware citizens have bowed under and to Democrat virtual total RULE for many decades to the less than the best interests of many if not most of its citizens. .

There are some policies and procedures the Communists/Marxists/Democrats are implementing that should definitely be of concern. Some people who are retired military; seem to think that everything is about ‘ROUNDUP’; (and not about the weed killer either.) Democrats/Communists would like to roundup all the conservatives; and put them in camps! (And, they are already doing it. They will tell you that they are protecting everybody’s health.) Ha…They don’t give a care about ANYBODY’s health, or well-being. Yes, let’s be VERY CONCERNED about ‘policies & procedures’. That gets rid of quite a few votes right there!

The barbarians are at the gates. Time to intentionally erase them. VOTE HAS BECOME A DIRTY 4 LETTER WORD IN MY OPINION EXCEPT WHEN IT IS USED TO SHUT DOWN THE PROGRESSIVE/SOCIALIST/COMMUNISTS LIKE CHUCKIE AND HIS CULT FOLLOWERS.
MANCHIN? MANCHIN? I wonder how the folks of West Virginia would like to see how he feels about voting. It is a strange strange world we live in Capt. Jack. It appears that it is all an illusion and political theater. SAD. SAD. SAD.

It’s beyond anyone’s imagination how Biden is now up front and showing the truth of their intentions to win power by any means possible, going so far to change long standing rules governing Senate rules. He wants to have the least amount of votes necessary to get his National Voting Bill through which would keep Democrats in power for ever if established. Biden in his feeble state suffering dementia now more than we have seen all year after his inauguration. He openly is trying to change our countries well established political structures going so far as pushing the 60 vote necessary to pass significant bills going nuclear with a marginal Senate control by Democrats. The American people have awakened to the Democratic Marxist push and have been showing their tyrannical approach to American freedoms and liberties guaranteed us by our founders. We are being lied to as well as the obvious push to stomp on the constitution and bill of rights. God help us if they are successful, we need to get back to our beliefs in a Republic, freedom once lost will be impossible to get back.

What they are attempting actually requires a Constitutional Amendment. Even denying six states their Constitutionally appointed electors was illegal.

DIMMs(Marxists/Communists) violated the state constitutions of several states in the 2020 election with no consequences. Now Senile Joe and Scummier want to violate the US Constitution! Of course, Joe already has by not securing our borders; one of the FEW delineated powers of the
president!
