Reprint- 8 Worst Parts of the So-Called ‘For the People’ Election Bill

Hits: 35

Reprint- 8 Worst Parts of the So-Called ‘For the People’ Election Bill. HR1 is the left’s attempt to rewrite parts of the Constitution where it pertains to state rights.

H.R. 1, the deceptively entitled “For the People Act,” has arrived in the U.S. Senate after a party-line vote in the House of Representatives. It is without doubt the most dangerous and irresponsible election bill I have ever seen.

If it becomes law, it will interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, to ensure the accuracy and validity of voter registration rolls, to secure the integrity of elections, and to participate and speak freely in the political arena.

H.R. 1 is an 800-page monstrosity that would usurp the role of the states. It would not only eliminate basic safety protocols, but mandate new, reckless rules and procedures. Here are the eight worst provisions of this ill-considered bill:

1. It would eviscerate state voter ID laws that require a voter to authenticate his identity. Indeed, it would force states to allow anyone to vote who simply signs a form saying that they are who they claim they are. When combined with the mandate that states implement same-day voter registration, it means I could walk into any polling place on Election Day, register under the name John Smith, sign a form claiming I really am John Smith, cast a ballot, and walk out. Not only would election officials have no way of preventing that or verifying that I am not really John Smith, but I could repeat this in as many polling places as I can get to.

2. It would make absentee ballots even more insecure than they already are. Not only could states not apply any ID requirement to absentee ballots, but they could not enforce any witness signature or notarization requirement. States that wisely ban candidates, campaign staffers, party activists and political operatives from handling or delivering absentee ballots would see that ban voided. H.R. 1 would require states to give access to absentee ballots to third-party strangers who may have a stake in the outcome of the election. All states also have to create permanent absentee ballot lists for anyone who wants to vote entirely by mail in all elections and mail absentee ballot request forms to all registered voters, a real problem given how inaccurate state voter registration rolls are.

3. It would worsen the problem of inaccurate registration rolls, which are full of people who have died, moved away, are ineligible felons or noncitizens, or are registered more than once. H.R. 1 severely restricts the ability of states to take the basic steps necessary to maintain the accuracy of their voter rolls, such as comparing their lists with those of other states or using the U.S. Postal Service’s National Change of Address System to find individuals who have moved.

4. It would take away your ability to decide whether you want to register to vote. Instead, it requires states to automatically register individuals who interact with state agencies such as DMV and welfare offices, as well as numerous federal agencies. This will not only lead to multiple registrations of individuals in the same and multiple states, but the registration of aliens and other ineligible individuals.

5. It would force states to allow online registration, opening up the voter registration system to massive fraud by hackers and cybercriminals. Worse, it severely restricts the ability of state officials to reject a voter registration application even when it is rejected because the official believes the individual is ineligible to vote.

6. It imposes onerous new regulatory restrictions on political speech and activity, including online and policy-related speech, by candidates, citizens, civic groups, unions, corporations, and nonprofit organizations. The disclosure provisions that apply to membership organizations like the NRA, Citizens for Life, and other organizations that Americans of all political stripes join to multiply their voices on important issues will subject donors to intimidation and harassment. It is the modern equivalent of the donor-disclosure requirements that state governments tried to impose on civil rights organizations in the 1950s – requirements the Supreme Court deemed unconstitutional.

7. It would authorize the IRS to investigate and consider the political and policy positions of nonprofit organizations when they apply for tax-exempt status. This would enable the political party in control of the White House (and thus the IRS) to use the IRS to go after anyone criticizing them or their policies.

8. It would set up a public funding program for candidates running for Congress. This would force taxpayers to subsidize the political campaigns of individuals they may vehemently disagree with and wouldn’t vote for in a million years.

Senators who support H.R. 1 should realize that they are essentially in favor of throwing the validity and credibility of future elections in doubt and taking away the authority of the voters of their states to make their own decisions on how their elections should be run.

How much more anti-democratic can you get?

The super spreader that Joe owns. The Undocumented

Hits: 23

The super spreader that Joe owns. The Undocumented What did Joe think would happen? He opens the border, stops the wall, and doesn’t test or quarantine. Oh I forgot, he cages children. Oh sure we hear about Miami and what a super spreader that is, I even posted how a loon in California claimed that 5 or 6 people in a grocery store was the reason the whole state was in lock down Sad.

So the undocumented are roaming the country. It’s bad enough that they’re here unwanted. Watch if some make it to red states, they won’t be blamed. American citizens will be cause the MSM will print or report that masks weren’t worn.

The federal government does not have a centralized system for tracking or responding to Covid-19 cases among the surge of migrants crossing the United States’ southern border, according to interviews with six senior administration officials and multiple individuals tasked with responding to the influx.

The Biden administration has outsourced most Covid-19 testing and quarantining for migrants to local health agencies and nongovernmental organizations. But it’s unclear how many have been tested for the virus, how many have tested positive and where infected people are being isolated along the border, four of the senior administration officials told POLITICO.


The Courts

Reprint. Now this is a Judge who speaks the truth. Now if you read the whole article, you’ll see that Judge Silberman is spot on. His disent should be discussed at every law school.

A federal appeals court judge has offered a blistering dissent in an obscure libel case that takes the measure of the mainstream media‘s bias.

The case centers on a 2018 report from Global Witness Publishing that accused Liberian government officials Christiana Tah and Randolph McClain of accepting bribes from Exxon. Tah and McClain sued Global Witness alleging defamation and their claims were dismissed in Friday’s ruling.

However, in the course of his partial dissent, D.C. Circuit Court Judge Laurence Silberman went on an unprecedented written tirade against the press, in which he argued that the Supreme Court should revisit the landmark 1964 New York Times v. Sullivan ruling that granted the media broad First Amendment protections from being sued by public officials.

“[N]ew considerations have arisen over the last 50 years that make the New York Times decision (which I believe I have faithfully applied in my dissent) a threat to American Democracy,” he write. “It must go.”

“The increased power of the press is so dangerous today because we are very close to one-party control of these institutions,” said Silberman, who was nominated to the federal bench by Ronald Reagan and has been a senior judge on the D.C. Circuit Court since 2000.

“Although the bias against the Republican Party—not just controversial individuals—is rather shocking today, this is not new; it is a long-term, secular trend going back at least to the ’70s,” Silberman wrote. “Two of the three most influential papers (at least historically), The New York Times and The Washington Post, are virtually Democratic Party broadsheets. And the news section of The Wall Street Journal leans in the same direction. The orientation of these three papers is followed by The Associated Press and most large papers across the country (such as the Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, and Boston Globe). Nearly all television—network and cable—is a Democratic Party trumpet. Even the government-supported National Public Radio follows along.”

He accused Silicon Valley of filtering news “in ways favorable to the Democratic Party” and fueling censorship, citing the suppression of the New York Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden in the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election.

“It is well-accepted that viewpoint discrimination ‘raises the specter that the Government may effectively drive certain ideas or viewpoints from the marketplace,'” Silberman said. “But ideological homogeneity in the media—or in the channels of information distribution—risks repressing certain ideas from the public consciousness just as surely as if access were restricted by the government.”

Silberman also sounded the alarm about the “serious efforts to muzzle” outlets like Fox News that aren’t under “Democratic Party ideological control.”

“It should be borne in mind that the first step taken by any potential authoritarian or dictatorial regime is to gain control of communications, particularly the delivery of news. It is fair to conclude, therefore, that one-party control of the press and media is a threat to a viable democracy,” the judge continued. “It may even give rise to countervailing extremism.

“The First Amendment guarantees a free press to foster a vibrant trade in ideas. But a biased press can distort the marketplace. And when the media has proven its willingness—if not eagerness—to so distort, it is a profound mistake to stand by unjustified legal rules that serve only to enhance the press’ power.”

Please get Joe some medical attention. Physical and Mental. Mostly Mental. Remember the commercial below, or a similar one?

Well I’m sure you saw this video.

Well things are getting out of control. The slurred speech. Black eyeballs. Forgetting where he is or who the people around him are. And the list just gets bigger and bigger.

Now the White House said the big bad wolf blew him over. Actually they said it was the wind. How gullible do they think we are? Their side

Deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierretold reporters aboard the plane that Biden was “doing fine.”

“It was very windy,” she said. “I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent.”

House Democrats and seven Republican traitors refuse to remove Chinese spy’s lover from Intelligence committee.

Hits: 28

House Democrats and seven Republican traitors refuse to remove Chinese spy’s lover from Intelligence committee. In a 218-200 vote, Congressman Eric Swalwell remains on the Intelligence committee.

Fang ( the Spy ) first interacted with Swalwell when he held a city council post in California, one of several back-and-forths she reportedly had with local officials across the country. She maintained those contacts until 2015, when intelligence officials’ alarm grew about her relationship with Swalwell, and they offered him a “defensive briefing.” Those briefings are meant to alert the targets of potential foreign operations in order to protect information from falling into the wrong hands.

Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi had no issues with this. When Congressman McCarthy was asked why he had issues with Swalwell he said this.

“I cannot talk to you about what I was given in a classified briefing,”

What a swell guy. First Ford says that Joe made Mexico look much more inviting. Then we see that 770,000 more Americans filed unemployment claims. In 2019 President Trump pressured Ford and GM to commit to build in the US. Both said yes. GM so far has. Ford seeing the new taxes and regulations Joe Biden has plans of adding may have been too much. So they are heading south.

New weekly jobless claims rose to 770,000 for the week that ended March 13, the Department of Labor said Thursday. Economists surveyed by Econoday had forecast a decline to 700,000. The prior week was initially reported at 712,000 but was revised up to 725,000.

Why are the courts now ruling in Trumps favor? And what’s Joe thinking?

Why are the courts now ruling in Trumps favor? And what’s Joe thinking? Joe must be wondering if what the Conservative folks are saying must be true. A Georgia court ruled against Fulton county last week. Now we see the same has happened in Michigan.

So what changed? We all were told that the Governors and Secretary of States were changing laws that were voted on and passed by the state legislature. In three of the four states the Secretary of State and Governor were Democrat. In the fourth ( Georgia ) the Secretary of State made a deal with a noted race baiter to change the law there.

Come on man.The Biden Pandemic at the border. You own this crisis. Undocumented children by the thousands. Muslim terrorists trying to come in. Immigrants from 49 countries overwhelming our security forces. All because Joe invited them. The left and the MSM tried to label it a surge. Then they said it’s President Trumps fault. But they realized he’s no longer in the White House. Sleepy Joe occupies it.

We saw where Pelosi said there were only 641 undocumented children and there was no crisis. Biden and the DHS reported 4,200 undocumented children. Now CBS NEWS reports over 13,000.

In closing, remember one important thing. The previous administration had it right. These folks were criminals and treated as such. Now they’re the new Democrat party base.

Reprint. How Woke Whites Are Turning Minorities Into Republican Voters

Reprint. How Woke Whites Are Turning Minorities Into Republican Voters. I found this very eye opening and so true. Those who will attack this article and deny that it’s true are the folks this article is about. I know this article is based on facts cause I see this hate from the left daily.

In the middle of their legislative orgy of socialistic giveaways and identity politics, Democrats might want to contemplate that their political priorities do not command the support of a majority of American voters. Moreover, the warnings on this front do not come from the right—they come from leftists themselves.

When an editorial columnist from the bastion of liberalism, The New York Times, writes that “Democrats are worried—very worried—about the future of the Hispanic vote,” you know something’s up. As it turns out, the radicalized “woke” among upper-class whites have done a good job alienating both African Americans and Hispanics from the Democratic coalition.

A separate interview with lefty data analyst David Shor reinforced the views in Edsall’s column. Shor argues that political polarization by educational status has in many ways supplanted polarization by race.

While the Democrat vote increased by seven percentage points among white college graduates in 2020, the party’s support among African Americans dropped by one to two percentage points, among Hispanics dropped by eight to nine points (and as much as 14-15 points in areas like South Florida), and among Asian Americans by roughly five points. Shor notes that “I don’t think a lot of people expected Donald Trump’s GOP to have a much more diverse support base than Mitt Romney’s did in 2012. But that’s what happened” (emphasis original).

Shor considers these developments a flashing red light for the left: “Most voters are not liberals. If we polarize the electorate on ideology—or if nationally prominent Democrats raise the salience of issues that polarize the electorate on ideology—we’re going to lose a lot of votes.”

Several of the political analysts Edsall quotes in his column agree with Shor’s contention that a radicalized Democratic Party could alienate many more voters than it attracts:

  • Democratic consultant Marc Farinella: “As far left activists compete with Democratic Party leaders to define party values and messaging, the centrist voters needed to achieve a durable majority will remain wary about Democratic desires for dominance.”
  • Harvard professor Ryan Enos: “The question for parties is whether members of their coalition are a liability because they repel other voters from the coalition. For Democrats, this may increasingly be the case with college-educated whites. They are increasingly concentrated into large cities, which mitigates their electoral impact, and they dominate certain institutions, such as universities and the media. The views emanating from these cities and institutions are out of step with a large portion of the electorate.”
  • Republican pollster Whit Ayres: “When white liberal Democrats start talking about defunding the police, the Green New Deal, and promoting policies that can be described as socialistic, they repel a lot of Hispanic voters. In other words, most Hispanics, like most African Americans, are not ideological liberals.”
  • Stanford University political scientist Bruce Cain: “Democrats set themselves up for losses if they do not pay attention to the realities of public opinion.”

So much for the oft-repeated leftist mantra about how “demography is destiny,” and the supposedly enduring nature of the Democratic coalition.

What does Shor think Democrats should do about this looming catastrophe? Rather than moderating their policies, Shor thinks the left should use the current Congress to tilt the playing field permanently in its direction—by requiring red states to redraw their congressional districts in a more pro-Democrat manner, and admitting new states that will increase Democratic votes in the Senate:

Since the maps in the House of Representatives are so biased against us, if we don’t pass a redistricting reform, our chance of keeping the House is very low. And then the Senate is even more biased against us than the House. So, it’s also very important that we add as many states as we can.

Currently, even if we have an exceptionally good midterm, the most likely outcome is that we lose one or two Senate seats. And then, going into 2024, we have something like seven or eight Democrats who are in states that are more Republican than the country overall.

Basically, we have this small window right now to pass redistricting reform and create states. And if we don’t use this window, we will almost certainly lose control of the federal government and not be in a position to pass laws again potentially for a decade.

Iran and China worked against Trump in 2020. Was it successful?

Hits: 13

Iran and China worked against Trump in 2020. Was it successful? Russia always was a player who pitted both sides against each other. We knew last year that Iran and China supported Joe Biden. And why not? Trump with the Tariffs. Plus leaving the Iran nuclear deal. Biden supported BOTH.

The National Intelligence Officer for Cyber — assessed that China “did take some steps to try to undermine former President Trump’s reelection.”

Those assessments, each of which was delivered with “high confidence,” came in a declassified report released through the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The investigation was carried out by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, or CISA.

Last year all the MSM saw the declassified documents that China and Iran were attempting to tip the election in Biden’s favor. But now only the Cyber folks see the Chinese as a threat? Looks as if Hunter will be working again.

What say you?
