The Democrats Are Now Against Election Integrity Reforms – This Time Defending Zuck Bucks

Congressional Democrats are seeking input to make election integrity less integrable. Last month, Democratic members of the Committee on Oversight and Reform and the Committee on House sent letters to local election officials in states that have started seeking election reform by restricting private election funding, such as “Zuckerbucks.” The letter was sent to collect information on the efforts put forth to counter conspiracy theories and protect the integrity of federal elections in those states. The letter later stated, “An effective, coordinated strategy at the federal, state, and local levels is essential to counter false information that could undermine upcoming elections.” In other words, Democrats are looking toward state and local election officials to collaborate with them on an election-based propaganda campaign. A strategy that worked well for the party’s last election cycle.   

Behind the scenes of the 2020 Presidential election were left-wing activist groups who aligned themselves with wealthy corporations in efforts to prevent President Donald J. Trump from winning his re-election campaign. Molly Ball, TIME’s political correspondent with close ties to prominent Democratic leaders, wrote,  

“Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers, and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result.” 

A major player in the alliance to make this group of college-aged activists so effective was Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Along with his reputation for censoring conservatives on social media, Zuckerberg also contributed such an extensive amount of money to left-leaning activist groups that it developed into a catchword called “Zuckerbucks.” He funded get-out-and-vote operations and indirectly funded swing states and local districts with generous grants.  

Zuckerberg tunneled approximately 419.5 million into local government election offices through the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR). A hefty increase from the 400 million included in the CARES Act (pandemic relief package) for election funding. 

Eliminating loopholes and bringing back election integrity is of utmost importance to the Republican party. Following the 2020 elections, nearly a dozen states have already banned the use of Zuckerbucks and private funding, with more states considering doing the same. Each ban on private funding varies from one state to the next. For example, Texas allows donations up to $1,000, but in Kansas that would be considered a felony and a misdemeanor in North Dakota.  

The ban on Zuckerbuck funding is a big loss for the Democrat party heading into the midterms and 2024. It is not surprising that they are looking for new strategies to control the flow of information since it benefited them so well in 2020. With election reform underway, it is important to remember that it’s the people’s right to determine what information is true and not when it comes to the officials we elect. It should not be up to federal, state, or local officials to determine what information is allowed to reach the voters. Freedom of speech and the press is critical for fair elections.

Since when does Congress have oversight of states? And, I can’t think of ANY democrat who is honest or has any integrity…why would we expect anything different?

If a Demon-Rat is talking he/she is lying. They are changing the tables to work for them. They have already proven that the working man and the public have no say. They consider themselves to be Gods. And Biblically we all know how that ended.

They sent Dinesh D’Souza behind bars for exceeding his campaign limit by a few measly bucks but they are a-o.k. when it’s big billions of dough funneled, and money laundered through a gigantic network of strawmen organizations for their cause! No more PACS, no more donations by corporations, and non-profits, they consist of individuals, they can each give their individual limit, but not as organizations, that abuse has gone on long enough. Planned Parenthood got so much “favorable” legislation because they were able to buy themselves so many politicians as a megadonor organization. Only when Soros, and Zuckerberg are limited to the same amount as Joe the Plumber will the “elite” shenanigans come to a screeching halt. Newsflash, organizations are not citizens, their members are but the organization is a thing, not a person, and should not have a vote, or a right to contribute finances to a campaign..

The Democrat Party has revealed their hand already, and they know how wicked it is. They know the only way they can win elections moving forward is to cheat. Democrat party candidates have simply become UNELECTABLE. I don’t even consider voting for any Democrat anymore, not even the likes of Joe Manchin.

The Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – have ALWAYS been against election integrity. Election integrity means the Democrats will have a difficult time cheating, which they know very well is the only way they can “win” elections.

The Democrats are hypocritical positivist scum and should be dealt with as such. A relative keeps insisting we can “come together” to solve problems. He has no conception that the Dems do not have that in mind ever. Check the definition of positivist and compare it with Democratic party activity. Especially against religion and abortion. I heard some stupid _itch say the other day that abortion was a “right” on the books for a whole 50 years. My response to Pocho on Twitter about that was that the right to keep and bear arms has been on the books for about 230 years.

Large campaign contributions to both parties has been part of our elections for years. If the candidate is transparent & up front as to where $$ are coming from, then I see no problem. Both Democrats & Republicans are constantly bombarding voters with their views.

It’s so sad that many ignorant, apathetic Americans are fooled by the Democrats and their expertise in rigging elections. There is no rational thought process that can justify loosey-goosey election standards, because of a need to fight racism. The people who scream “racism” at the expense of election security are either fanatics or foolish. They are actually blind followers of the “Chicken Little” syndrome. “The sky is falling. The sky is falling!”

No surprise here. The Democrats will support any election change that gains them an edge, regardless of legality or ethics.

The big question in my opinion is, will the American people accept future election results or not? Will lots of Republicans not vote cuz they believe elections are all fraud & corrupt like 2020 election. . If so, that will leave a lot of votes from other party.

ALL corporate donors need to be banned from contributing to political campaigns. That would be one way to stop lobbyists, special interests and political payback schemes from hatching into evil, bought and paid for politicians.

How can you tell a democrat is lying?
Their month is open.

Everything they say / accuse others of is a projection of their own failure.

fiden is a train wreck, two trains, 100 oil tanker cars each, colliding head on as they cross the Mississippi River.
kamaltoe is a midair collision, 747 jumbos, directly over the Super Bowl game.
This entire administration is more phuqued up then a soup sandwich.

Y’all count yourselves luck that I am NOT in charge.

The Democrats have ALWAYS been against election integrity. One of the simplest and most necessary needs is for voter ID, and the Democrats condemn that requirement along with every other proposal to make our elections more provably honest. Why? Because the ends justify the means to them. They will lie, cheat, and steal for political power. The 2020 election was the most dishonest in my 78 years with nutty policies used that were falsely justified by the COVID pandemic. Those same policies will be used again if they can manage it, but the bigger point is that election integrity is the very last thing the Democrats favor. If they saw a benefit to themselves of strictly honest voting they would favor it. The reason they do not becomes very obvious. .

IF a conservative ever wins another presidential election, America’s decline will accelerate. BLM, et.al. will push everybody and everything to chaos. Then, it’ll be martial law and national guard in every major city starting with sanctuary cities. The American taxpayer will, of course, be called upon to finance every emergency measure implemented. Communists are scum of the earth, i.e. BLM, Nancy Pelosi and CCP-bought bastards in both houses. A quick demise is too good for any of them.

Bottom line: demorats are against anything that would keep them from power. They hate our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our freedoms, our prosperity, they lie about everything especially the laughable term “gun violence” as they’re the one’s who’ve deliberately gutted our justice system. They are pushing perversion on young children, they believe that abortion is about “women’s rights” (how about the right to keep their pants on!). Democrats will pull every filthy, Godless and despicable trick to take over our nation and turn it into another communist China or Cuba.They have deliberately trashed everything that’s made this nation what it was meant to be. Illegals are able to vote in New York “elections” after, of course the demorats made them an offer they couldn’t refuse…hardworking American’s money! There is no reason, care or intelligent thought in the demorat party (see lynch).

Democrat Gretchen Whitmer is sure against election integrity. She just vetoed a state house and senate passed bill to clean up the voter rolls by removing dead people and those who have moved. WHY would she do that unless she knew that these entities were voting with mail in ballots? She’s so pathetic!!!!

For those of you who don’t know, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer is the “outstanding” governor of Michigan which is still a Great State despite her! Bless her little heart.

To get an idea on how Zuckerbucks money interfered with the 2020 General Election watch Denesh D’Souza’s documentary 2000 Mules. I think it costs 4.99 to download it but I watched it free on Rumble, regardless it shows actual ballot harvesting and drop box trafficking, and a condition of Zuckerberg’s money…all swing states had to install dropboxes….my blood was boiling after watching this. If you didn’t think the election was STOLEN before you watch it, you will be convinced it was after you watch it.

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
