The “For The People Act” is anything but.

“H.R. 1” represents the House of Representatives’ bill with the highest priority…, and it is obvious why.  

According to Betsy McCaughey, for The Boston Herald, “Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab.”

The “For the People Act” has nothing to do with “The People,” and everything to do with “the democrats.”  

On a side note, why does it seem that everything the democrats are doing lately seems to “trash the U.S. Constitution?’

Have you noticed this?

Didn’t all of these people take an oath to preserve and protect The Constitution?

Just sayin’.  

“The bill eviscerates [“Eviscerates” is a strong word!] state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.”

It’s our right to NOT vote as well, isn’t it?

It’s our right to NOT have someone vote on our behalf without our permission, isn’t it?

Well, isn’t it?

“Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out, but there are no criminal penalties if they don’t.”

The fact that in some states, “noncitizens” can get driver’s licenses, food stamps, Medicaid, other social services, or attend a public college, is a whole other issue…, but they should not be allowed to register to vote, and it should not be up to them to “opt out.”   

“From California to New York, Democrats are already pushing to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections. They see this as their roadmap to a future permanent majority.”

Maybe “yes,” and maybe “no.”

Just because democrats let them in doesn’t necessarily mean they want to see America devolve into the socialist and totalitarian nightmares they just came from.  

“HR 1’s bag of tricks also includes banning state voter ID requirements. Anyone can show up on Election Day to vote, registered or not, and simply sign a statement that they’re a legal voter.”

So, they’re saying voting is less important than:

Buying alcohol

Buying cigarettes

Sitting at a bar

Renting a car

Getting on an airplane

Adopting a pet

Renting a hotel room

Applying for a fishing license

Buying a cell phone

Visiting a casino

Picking up a prescription

Donating blood

Buying an “M” rated video game

Purchasing nail polish at CVS

Purchasing certain cold medicines

Attending the democrat national convention

Is that what they’re saying?

Yes…, that’s what they’re saying.   

“HR 1 is being sold as a reform to make voting easier.”

Well, HR 1 definitely does that!

“In truth, it makes cheating easier.”

And we’ve already seen evidence of that in the 2020 election.

“HR 1 compels states to send out absentee or mail-in ballots universally, favoring Democrats who tend to use this method.”

The republicans may be forced to use this “method” as well in future elections.

I mean, you’ve got to fight fire with fire, right?

We may see a day, in the future, where there are more votes tallied than people living in America!  

“It also forces states to count ballots that arrive by mail as late as 10 days after the election. Say goodbye to election night finality.”

“HR 1 also legalizes ballot harvesting, a practice many states are struggling to stop. A political organization pays a worker to walk through housing projects and neighborhoods, knock on doors, offer to help residents fill out the ballots they’ve received in the mail, and then submit the piles of completed ballots. It’s a recipe for fraud.”

“It’s also unconstitutional.”

“The authors of the Constitution worried that Congress would try to seize control of presidential selection using dirty tricks like those in HR 1. That’s why they acted to ‘to take the business as far as possible out of their hands,’ according to Charles Pinckney, a framer from South Carolina.”

“Congress, said Pinckney, ‘had no right to meddle’ in it. The framers provided in Article II, Sec. 1 that only state legislatures would have the power to determine how the president is chosen. No national rules.”

“But Pelosi has no qualms about trashing the Constitution to kneecap her opponents.”

There they go “trashing the Constitution, again.

“HR 1 also asserts Congress has the authority to make the District of Columbia into the 51st state. That would hand Democrats two more Senate seats, breaking the current 50-50 tie. Voter registration in D.C. is 76% Democratic and only 6% Republican.”

The recent election indicates the percentage is much higher than that, with over 92% of the votes going to democrats.

“Pelosi ignores that only a constitutional amendment can change the status or parameters of the district.”

“HR 1 also would expose supporters of conservative causes to disclosure and harassment. In 2013, then-President Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service tried to strong-arm tax-exempt tea party organizations into disclosing their donors. Pelosi’s bill would give that thuggish tactic the force of law, requiring organizations to disclose their donors.”

“Pelosi’s democracy-destroying bill will pass in the House, where Democrats have a majority [and have no problem with destroying democracy].”

“President Joe Biden has promised to sign it if it passes the Senate. So much for Biden’s unity pledge.”

And, because Illegitimate Joe just signs what they tell him to.  

“Under current Senate rules, 60 votes are needed to enact HR 1. Democrats don’t have them yet. It’s up to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to protect the 60-vote filibuster rule. He’s called the bill ‘the Democratic Politician Protection Act,’ and deplores it as a naked attempt to change the election rules to benefit one party.”

It’s really cringeworthy when we have to count on Mitch McConnell to do anything.

“The bill is just what you’d expect from Pelosi. But the Senate needs to rise to the occasion and protect honest, competitive elections — the foundation of our freedom.”

The RStreet.org website says,   

“H.R. 1 is likely the most consequential piece of election-related legislation in years and mostly in a bad way. Let’s be clear: it should be easier to participate in elections and easier to talk about elections. Anything that does the opposite is a bad idea.”

“As an organization, R Street stands strongly for the cause of political reform, and we will always support good policy. H.R. 1 is not good policy.”

The Heritage Foundation adds, about HR 1, that, “It would implement nationwide the worst changes in election rules that occurred during the 2020 election and go even further in eroding and eliminating basic security protocols that states have in place.”

“It would make it a criminal offense for a state official to reject a voter registration application even when it is rejected ‘under color of law’ [whatever that means] because the official believes the individual is ineligible to vote. It would also require states to allow 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds to register; when combined with a ban on voter ID and restrictions on the ability to challenge the eligibility of a voter, this would effectively ensure that underage individuals could vote with impunity.”

“Require states to count ballots cast by voters outside of their assigned precincts, overriding the precinct system used by almost all states that allows election officials to monitor votes, staff polling places, provide enough ballots, and prevent election fraud.”

“Mandate no-fault absentee ballots, which are the tool of choice for vote thieves. It would ban witness signature or notarization requirements for absentee ballots; force states to accept absentee ballots received up to 10 days after Election Day as long as they are postmarked by Election Day; and require states to allow vote trafficking (vote harvesting) so that any third parties—including campaign staffers and political consultants—can pick up and deliver absentee ballots.”

“H.R. 1 would add a provision criminalizing ‘hindering, interfering, or preventing’ anyone from registering or voting, which is so vague and so broad that it could prevent providing any information to election officials about the ineligibility of an individual, such as an applicant not being a U.S. citizen.”

“Reduce the number of Federal Election Commission members from six to five, allowing the political party with three commission seats to control the commission and engage in partisan enforcement activities.”

“Authorize the Internal Revenue Service to engage in partisan activity. H.R. 1 would permit the IRS to investigate and consider the political and policy positions of nonprofit organizations before granting tax-exempt status, thus enabling IRS officials to target organizations engaging in First Amendment activity with disfavored views.”

“Limit access to federal courts for anyone challenging H.R. 1. The bill would prohibit the filing of any lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of H.R. 1 anywhere except in the District Court for the District of Columbia and would allow the court to order all plaintiffs and intervenors, regardless of their number (such as all 50 states), ‘to file joint papers or to be represented by a single attorney at oral argument,’ severely limiting the legal representation and due process rights of challengers.”

Wow, they have really thought of everything!

We ARE living in America, aren’t we?

These democrats seem hell-bent on dragging us into some kind of Nazi Germany scenario.

And they have the unmitigated nerve to call this the “For The People Act” on top of it all.

There is no question that the democrats are completely un-American and have no shame. 

No shame, whatsoever.     

I have many blogs out here regarding democrat voting shenanigans you can check out as well.  

The following blog links contain some of my suggestions to improve our voting process.

These would be things that should be included in HR 1 if the democrats were really interested in improving the process for “We The People.”

Mail-in, shmail-in.

Oh great…, we’re graduating to using “snail mail” to somehow enhance our voting system.

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “President Trump said Monday that it could take two months for Americans to see a result from November’s presidential election — a comment that came amid a tense back-and-forth over the merits of universal mail-in voting during an interview with Axios journalist Jonathan Swan.”

I believe taking two months to get the final election results is very optimistic.

On a side note…, you never hear the words “amid a tense back-and-forth” when describing Joe Biden’s interaction with a reporter do you?

Just sayin’.

Anyway…, “The comments during the ‘Axios (a news website) on HBO’ interview come as the debate over universal mail-in voting — which many states are doing despite Swan incorrectly asserting otherwise several times during the interview — has reached a fever pitch. Universal mail-in voting is a relatively novel practice in the U.S. in which states, largely because of the coronavirus pandemic, are mailing ballots (not applications for ballots) to all voters whether they request one or not.”

amailin 9

Hey…, like they say, “Vote early and vote often!”

amailin 1

“Some states, like Maryland, are mailing absentee ballot applications to voters rather than the ballots themselves. And such voting, requiring an application to get an absentee ballot, has long been common in the U.S. What is new is states mailing ballots to voters unprompted.”

‘“We went through World War I, you went to the polls, you voted. We went through World War II, you went to the polls, you voted. And now because of the China virus, we’re supposed to stay home, send millions of ballots all over the country, millions and millions,’ Trump told Swan during their wide-ranging conversation. ‘You know, you could have a case where this election won’t be decided on the evening of Nov. 3. This election could be decided two months later.’”

“Inauguration Day is about two-and-a-half months after Election Day. Swan replied that there is nothing necessarily wrong with having a delayed result, as long as the result is correct.”

What Mr. Swan means is, he has no problem waiting, however long it takes, until enough votes are produced to make the democrat the winner in the race.

‘“It could be decided many months later,’ Trump said. ‘Do you know why? Because lots of things will happen during that period of time. Especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen. There’s never been anything like this … Now, of course, right now we have to live with it, but we’re challenging it.’”

Your completely right, Sir…, LOTS of things can happen with these ballots.  They can mysteriously disappear, and they can miraculously appear…, whatever the case dictates.

“The president was referencing the lawsuits the Republican National Committee (RNC) and his campaign are bringing against some states over universal mail-in voting or other, similar issues.”

amailin 4

“Trump on Monday threatened legal action against a universal mail-in voting plan in Nevada. Republicans, who oppose universal mail-in voting, have worried it could lead to ballot harvesting, ballots for dead people or ballots for people who’ve moved being fraudulently filled out, as well as ballots being lost in the mail, and more.”

amailin 8

Ballot harvesting is the gathering and submitting of mail-in voter ballots by political operatives, third-party individuals, volunteers or workers, rather than submission by the voters themselves directly to ballot collection sites.

No potential for voter fraud here!!!

In fact, according to Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News, “A minor change in California’s election laws may have had a major effect on [the 2018] midterm elections that saw Democrats steamroll their Republican rivals and claim all but seven of the Golden State’s 53 House seats.”

What happened with those seven seats that went to republicans?

Did they run out of ballots to forge?

Or was the margin of victory in those districts just too much to realistically flip?

“Despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates in California saw their advantage shrink, and then disappear, as late-arriving Democratic votes were counted in the weeks following the election. While no hard evidence is available, many observers point to the Democrats use of ‘ballot harvesting’ as a key to their success in the elections.”

amailin 6

‘“Anecdotally there was a lot of evidence that ballot harvesting was going on,’ Neal Kelley, the registrar for voters in Southern California’s Orange County, told Fox News.”

“In Orange County – once seen as a Republican stronghold in the state– every House seat went to a Democrat after an unprecedented ‘250,000’ vote-by-mail drop-offs were counted, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.”

amailin 10

‘“People were carrying in stacks of 100 and 200 of them. We had multiple people calling to ask if these people were allowed to do this,’ Kelley said.”

Can you imagine this going on across the country?

I think President Trump is right…, it would be weeks, probably months before the final vote was determined.

However long it would take democrats to produce enough ballots to get their desired result.

Tyler Olsen continues, “Democrats, on the other hand, have cited studies saying voter fraud via mail is relatively rare in the U.S., and noted that Trump and many on the right have voted via mail with absentee ballots — ballots a voter requests through a process before mailing in their vote. But universal mail-in voting has never been tried on the scale Democrats propose this fall.”

amailin 3

You have to realize that democrats like to blur the line between absentee ballots and mail-in ballots for their own benefit.

“Already, increased mail-in voting has led to problems throughout the country, including four men being charged with voter fraud in Paterson, N.J., 100,000 ballots rejected in California during the March presidential primary, and more.”

Carl Campanile, Nolan Hicks and Bernadette Hogan for The New York Post report that, “The mail-in ballots of more than 84,000 New York City Democrats who sought to vote in the presidential primary were disqualified, according to new figures released by the Board of Elections.”

“The city [Board of Elections] BOE received 403,103 mail-in ballots for the June 23 Democratic presidential primary.”

“But the certified results released revealed that only 318,995 mail-in ballots were counted.”

“That means 84,108 ballots were not counted or invalidated — 21 percent of the total.”

“One out of four mail-in ballots were disqualified for arriving late, lacking a postmark or failing to include a voter’s signature, or other defects.”

And that election was just democrats running against other democrats!!!

Adam K. Raymond of the Intelligencer reports, “According to the New York Times elections-results page, three congressional primaries and a handful of State Senate and General Assembly primaries are still up in the air. The final calls haven’t been made for Ritchie Torres and Jamaal Bowman, who challenged longtime Representative Eliot Engel, but both are expected to win. Meanwhile, the race for the Democratic nomination in the 12th Congressional District is much tighter, with incumbent Representative Carolyn Maloney and Suraj Patel separated by fewer than 700 votes.”

These elections took place on June, 23.  Raymond wrote his article July 16, and it is now over a month later and the Maloney-Patel race has still not been determined.

Again…, can you imagine this type of thing on a national level?

And all of these problems occurred in a single congressional district!

Multiply that by hundreds on a national level.

The Asociated Press reports, “A judge [State Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela] has ruled that a new election will be held in November for a disputed Paterson City [New Jersey] Council seat, just weeks after the race’s apparent winner and a sitting councilman were charged with voter fraud.”

“Alex Mendez had won a special election on May 12 [it’s now over three months later] to fill the seat, but claims of voter fraud were soon raised. An investigation was then launched after the U.S. Postal Service’s law enforcement arm told the state attorney general’s office about hundreds of mail-in ballots located in a mailbox in Paterson, along with more found in nearby Haledon.”

“Voter fraud charges were brought in June against Mendez, Paterson Council Vice President Michael Jackson and two other men: Shelim Khalique, of Wayne, and Abu Rayzen, of Prospect Park. An attorney for Councilman William McKoy, who had been defeated by Mendez, then successfully sought an injunction that barred Mendez from being sworn into office.”

“President Donald Trump has cited the disputed race as a case study in what could happen in an election conducted mostly by mail. His re-election campaign sued New Jersey on Tuesday in a bid to stop the state’s plans to conduct the November general election mostly by mail.”

I guess the incredible problems they experienced in a relatively small local election with mail-in voting did not phase them and their desire to be able to manipulate the state’s elections in November.

And again, and again…, can you imagine this type of thing extrapolated out on a national level?

In addition to all of that…, when people go to vote in person, election officials won’t know if they already voted via a mail-in ballot.

The election in November has the potential to be one hot mess.

amailin 11

If the democrats are trying to turn this whole process into a three-ring circus, delegitimize our entire election process, and basically render our elections meaningless, they’re doing a good job of it.

amailin 12

Just remember, democrats…, when it gets to the point that law abiding citizens feel their vote doesn’t matter anymore, you’re going to have a bigger problem on your hands…, a way bigger problem.

Just sayin’.
