Integrity Matters –“New Americans” Baloney

ELECTORAL INTEGRITY concept. 3D illustration of a ballot along with ELECTORAL INTEGRITY script over an embossment of the United States of America

You will not hear this much, but integrity matters. Maine – a Democrat-run state – now struggles with integrity, with other one-party Democrat states. A year ago, their House Speaker – part of a nationwide trend – pushed giving illegal aliens a driver’s license or non-driver ID.  Why?

Odd, actually pure baloney. Although her bill is not law, a signal went out. Illegals, via driver’s licenses or non-driver IDs, should vote. Mouthing discrimination, Democrats created a “New Americans Office,” with free housing for illegals. Kindness or voter manipulation?

Free housing? Yes, a ‘Taj Mahal’ in Brunswick, Maine, the first of many for illegals – 60 luxury units, free for two years, $13 million cost. Why?

That is something taxpaying Mainers wonder, as no Mainer gets that. What does the new address get the illegals, beyond luxury? An official residence in Maine is what – a provable address, which opens other doors if they get mail – like a nice congratulatory letter from the governor.

What can they do with that? Well, if the state chooses, that piece of mail offers legitimacy, in effect a legal presence in the state. After all, they got their residence – no penalties, no cost, no proof of asylum – from  Maine’s Democrat legislature and governor. So, it must be legal.

What does that mean? Under Section 1409, Title 29-A, point 8, they are now likely to satisfy the “legal presence requirement” within the State, so can receive a “nondriver identification card.”

And … what might that do for them, and all who support them? While they need to assert citizenship in a yes/no question, an illegal alien with a “nondriver identification card,” proof of residency, or affidavit of Maine residency is suddenly permitted to vote. Bingo!

It gets easy from there. To avoid eye contact, they can get an absentee ballot online, or someone can for them, no reason needed. Trouble filling it out? Someone may show up to help them.

If all this seems impossible, surreal, a kind of open door to illegal voting, add this: The State apparently wants 75,000 new illegals imported, as Mainers struggle for housing, good jobs, safe streets, and an end to foreign trafficking in fentanyl and Chinese marijuana grow houses.

Kicker: Maine – like 17 other states with these Democrat-created “New Americans” offices – is small. We have 1.3 million citizens, and a close legislature – so 75,000 illegals, directed to vote a certain way by thoughtful non-profits, might seriously affect Maine’s democracy.

Interestingly, other small states with close legislatures and controlled by Democrats, are doing the same thing, driven by a national “network” pushing such offices. The “network” notably chooses, in their literature and actions, not to distinguish legal from illegal immigrants.

So, what does this really mean – for Maine and those 17 other states with “New Americans” offices, no voter ID laws, single-party Democrat legislatures …that want to keep power?

What it means is that integrity, fairness, and law as we know them are afterthoughts. More illegal aliens are showing up, often by surprise, in these states, from Maine to Montana. They are being invited and lured with free housing and goodies. And many seem on track to vote. Much goes unsaid these days, but this deserves saying: Integrity matters. Voters need to think hard about that.

RBC, as stated before, this situation is a continuation of the Left agenda to destroy the electoral process and our nation’s freedoms. This abuse continues to bite us in the a**. Soon, this process will somehow make the U.S. Constitution null and void, our freedoms eliminated — welcome to Socialism/Communism like Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union of old.

Welcome to the USSA, the Ununited Socialist States of America. One-party rule looms large unless Americans awake up and stand up to ensure that the land of the free remains just that. But that also requires us to be the home of brave.

Keep voting for the demokrats and this country will not only be a 3rd world country but one that is worse than Nazi Germany ever was

I appreciate your work.
God says – “ Fear Not” 365 times in the Bible.
I need that every day.
The evil is so pervasive.
God and the Christian Remnant are bigger- but it is hard to see in the middle of it – I remember that millions were pursued and between rocks and the Red Sea-
And God showed up.

Integrity – the reason for the Declaration of Independence ,the matter of ethics in America today , addressing this issue is of great importance , the idea of what National character is all about — it is vital to do what you did by writing this article Robert . The feeling I got when in my youth ,growing up in Philadelphia visiting Independence Hall on the dozen or so visits there ,it inspired positive. thoughts ,developed an appreciation of history, and an understanding of the values of integrity, truth, courage all connected to the issue of Liberty. Responsible behavior needs to be encouraged. When people in congress stand for corruption, it needs to be stopped.That involves the understanding of integrity, how it was a major part of those who helped to establish the United States of America and how good character and good citizenship are part of the spirit of “God bless America land of the free, home of the brave”.When people take a stand for what is right it is a healthy ,uplifting thing to do.

I wonder how long it will take for this to take place in bloody nj??? How many legal Americans have to be killed before people wise up and demand the border be closed?? The democrats will do whatever it takes to stay in power and keep taking our money!! A**hole Biden wants to raise taxes along with the rest of his crap!! The liberals must think the rest of us are going to foot the bill!!

This whole open borders is just what RBC is spot on! Open the boarders, bring in illegals, give them freebies and then get them to vote for Democrats!!! Rush Limbaugh warned about this during Obama’s administration! This sounds like what Communists do in other Marxist countries! Make everyone think they get to vote but the winner is predetermined! Talk about killing Democracy!!!!! FYI: We are supposed to be a Republic NOT a Democracy but Democrats are purposely misleading Americans with this crap too!

I’m from CA many years ago and I used to always ask the poll workers where I voted if they thought illegals voted and they’d always laugh and say of course they do and often more than once. This is nothing new, but it’s the volume that is so concerning. 10million new people can really make a difference.

Oregon votes by mail. I have a friend with a green card. Last year when she renewed her Driver’s license, she checked NOT register to vote..they sent her a ballot anyway. Luckily she speaks English and knows she can’t legally vote. Thousands do not. Don’t tell me non-citizens aren’t voting, I KNOW they are!

I don’t understand how Demoncrats can continue to get away with this?! Imagine the uproar and ensuing violence if Conservatives behaved this way. We would have cities burning to the ground again, and law abiding citizens attacked, beaten!
what our the options for securing Constitutional Law, and peace.

Gee Mr. Charles it is a shame your state, Maine is heading in the direction it is heading with constant one party (democrat) rule. Let’s pray those democrats wake up that keep voting to keep democrats in control of your state vote them out of office. You have written several articles on the bad policies your state is trying and imposing on your state. I am currently thankful that I don’t live there.

Of course we think about it. But don’t know what to do about it. All this has happened too quickly, pushed in time for the ’24 election. This New America group was no doubt created by Democrat donors, led by the Biden administration, maybe before 2020. Most of us normal citizens feel frustrated and powerless as the tide pulls us under. Our votes don’t count.

So, Robert, if Mainers are upset with this current disaster, why do they not throw (vote) these politicians out of office?

We need a conservative attorney who files a brief with the Supreme Court. There is no line item in the Constitution giving Congress the authority to delegate rule making, law making to the President, departments, or agencies. Only Congress can make law. All this rule making should be declared unconstitutional, null, and void. This would instantly shut down Biden’s policies.

Integrity and Democrats should be used in the same sentence. Very incompatible.
