On Tuesday, President Biden spoke in Tulsa, Oklahoma to commemorate the horrific massacre of Tulsa’s black residents in 1921.
But, of course, Biden couldn’t help himself, and he used the event to once again lie about current voting law reforms being pushed by Republicans at the state level.
He has repeatedly and falsely compared these Republican-led efforts to ensure election integrity to the racist Jim Crow laws of a bygone era. Or, as he said, these laws would become known as “Jim Eagle” laws…which is still a head-scratcher. Who the hell is Jim Eagle?
But I digress.
During the Tulsa speech, Biden announced that he would be placing Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of “voting right” efforts to combat the evil, vile, racist Republican efforts to ensure that elections are not fair…or something.
Putting Kamala Harris in the lead role of supposed “election rights” legislation should send a chill down your spine.
Biden said, “To signify the importance of our efforts, today I’m asking Vice President Harris to help these efforts and lead them among her many other responsibilities,” Biden said. “With her leadership and your support, we’re going to overcome again, but it’s going to take a hell of a lot of work.”
The work ahead of us is to make voting accessible to all American voters, and to make sure every vote is counted through a free, fair, and transparent process,” Harris said in response. “This is the work of democracy.”
Republicans want every vote “counted through a free, fair, and transparent process,” but they don’t want the Federal government to nationalize elections…and for good reason.
Undoubtedly, Vice President Harris will push for the ironically-named “For the People Act,” also known as HR 1. The unconstitutional piece of legislation takes away the constitutional duty of state legislatures to run elections, and place it squarely in the hands of the DC Swamp.
Once again, chills should be running down your spine at the thought of having the Swamp run our elections. If you thought people didn’t trust election integrity before, imagine the lack of trust many Americans will have knowing that the Federal government is in charge of making sure the system is “fair” and “free.”
The Heritage Foundation summarizes the legislation as the following:
“H.R. 1 would federalize and micromanage the election process administered by the states, imposing unnecessary, unwise, and unconstitutional mandates on the states and reversing the decentralization of the American election process—which is essential to the protection of our liberty and freedom. It would (among other things) implement nationwide the worst changes in election rules that occurred during the 2020 election; go even further in eroding and eliminating basic security protocols that states have in place; and interfere with the ability of states and their citizens to determine the qualifications and eligibility of voters, ensure the accuracy of voter registration rolls, secure the fairness and integrity of elections, and participate and speak freely in the political process.”
Oh, and if you think the Republicans stand to do well in the 2022 elections and take back the House, HR 1 will make you think again.
If the Democrats get their way, they will be able to take that power away from state legislatures—which are controlled by Republicans in 31 states—and set up a “independent” commission to draw districts nationwide.
And through it all, Democrats insist that this is being done on behalf of minority voters…but they way they actually talk about minorities shows where the REAL racists are hiding.
Any American that follows the law can vote, and it is insulting to minorities to suggest they are incapable of following the voting procedure.
Just like white voters, minority voters own cars and are capable of going to the polls. They are capable of voting on days that aren’t Sunday because they are not incapable of understanding how to vote. And they can easily obtain voter IDs. In fact, the overwhelming majority of minority citizens have driver’s licenses, social security cards, or other forms of accepted ID because they’re perfectly functional adults living in the 21st Century.
But, hey gang, Kamala Harris is going to save democracy single handily. I mean, she has already fixed the border crisis after Biden gave her that job…oh, wait, probably not the best example since the border is still being overrun by illegal aliens.
But just trust her, this time will be different.
