Stealing the 2022 Election Act…

Bs-schumerSo here comes the dishonest progressive communist democrat Chuck Schumer (D-NY), claiming that he will be “forcing” a vote on Senate Bill S.B. 1, falsely labeled “For the People Act,” in the week of June 21, 2021.

The bill appears to federalize and micromanage certain election provisions, many of which usurp a state’s right to control its own elections.

The bill would eliminate nearly all integrity qualifications such as photo identification, require states to implement a system of automatic voter registration to flood the voter rolls, offer everyone mail-in ballots, a minimum of 15 days of early voting, and allow same-day registration on any day voting is allowed – including early voting days.

And as a specific slap to any future Trump run in 2024, it would require that certain candidates make public ten years of tax returns.

It would force the subjective nature of race into voting with racial gerryman­dering, allegedly to prevent racial dis­crimination.

“Congress finds that racial discrimination in access to voting and the political process persists. Voting restrictions, redistricting, and other electoral practices and processes continue to disproportionately impact communities of color in the United States and do so as a result of both intentional racial discrimination, structural racism, and the ongoing structural socioeconomic effects of historical racial discrimination.”

And, it would force states and individuals to bring election-related cases in the hyper-partisan, pro-democrat, pro-government D.C. Circuit Court.

Accordingly, a more appropriate name for the bill could be “Stealing the 2022 Election Act.”

In announcing the upcoming vote,  Schumer commented, “The legislation is essential to defending our democracy, reducing the influence of dark money and powerful special interests, and stopping the wave of Republican voter suppression happening in the states across the country in service of President Trump’s Big Lie."

Unpacking Schumer’s statement…

Defending our democracy – Our nation is a republic, not a democracy. The major difference is that the smallest states can be heard against the background noise of the largest states. If Schumer had his way, our nation would devolve into a mobocracy where the votes in most populous states (California, Texas, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, and Michigan) would decide the election, and everyone else’s vote would effectively be disenfranchised.

Reducing the influence of dark money and powerful special interests – Essentially, this bill would force the disclosure of donors so they can be targeted by the opposition. And by the opposition, I also mean the corrupt and hyper-politicized agencies of the government, primarily the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Justice, not to say that lesser agencies would not also interfere in the business activities of the donors. Under Obama’s progressive communist democrat Administration, the IRS was weaponized and used to cripple the activities of conservative organizations. Those involved, such as Lois Learner, were never sanctioned for their corrupt political activities.

Stopping the wave of Republican voter suppression – The Democrats are quick to mischaracterize attempts to maintain voter integrity. Conflating election integrity protections such as cleaning the voter roles of individuals who have died or moved out of the state and requiring some form of positive photo identification to register and vote as voter suppression.

The democrats constantly cite black and other minority voters that will be damaged by these actions. Considering that a  photo-id is needed for travel, entrance to certain buildings, opening a bank account, obtaining government social assistance, etc., it is both ludicrous and insulting to believe certain minorities are too feeble or stupid to obtain the most basic of identification needed to live a normal life. The only people who may be disadvantaged might be the illegal aliens, but then again, they are legally denied voting privileges.

President Trump’s Big Lie – The “ BIG lie” is that the 2020 presidential election appears to have been stolen from President Donald Trump by various unconstitutional and illegal election rule changes, vote collection, processing, and tabulation anomalies, and suspicious official audits conducted by those whose very conduct was being questioned.

There is no doubt that some of the vote was subject to illegal and unconstitutional rules. Primarily to blame is Chief Justice John Roberts and the United States Supreme Court, which rejected an opportunity to order the states to follow the U.S. Constitution and their respective State Constitutions before the vote. The Court also rejected post-election cases, which could have potentially upset the election.

In spite of assurances from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, several of the unfolding post-election audit events have placed many of the issued statements in doubt.

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result."

“When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."

“Other security measures like pre-election testing, state certification of voting equipment, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) certification of voting equipment help to build additional confidence in the voting systems used in 2020."

“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too. When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.” <Source>

There is little doubt in my mind that there were numerous election anomalies in the 2020 presidential election. The fact that while claims of the election have been proffered, those who ran the election are resisting forensic audits. If the election was so clean, why are they not welcoming audits to prove that their assertions are correct?

The official summary…

Summary: S.1 — 117th Congress (2021-2022)

For the People Act of 2021

This bill addresses voter access, election integrity and security, campaign finance, and ethics for the three branches of government.

Specifically, the bill expands voter registration (e.g., automatic and same-day registration) and voting access (e.g., vote-by-mail and early voting). It also limits removing voters from voter rolls.

The bill requires states to establish independent redistricting commissions to carry out congressional redistricting.

Additionally, the bill sets forth provisions related to election security, including sharing intelligence information with state election officials, supporting states in securing their election systems, developing a national strategy to protect U.S. democratic institutions, establishing in the legislative branch the National Commission to Protect United States Democratic Institutions, and other provisions to improve the cybersecurity of election systems.

Further, the bill addresses campaign finance, including expanding the prohibition on campaign spending by foreign nationals, requiring additional disclosure of campaign-related fundraising and spending, requiring additional disclaimers regarding certain political advertising, and establishing an alternative campaign funding system for certain federal offices.

The bill addresses ethics in all three branches of government, including by requiring a code of conduct for Supreme Court Justices, prohibiting Members of the House from serving on the board of a for-profit entity, and establishing additional conflict-of-interest and ethics provisions for federal employees and the White House.

The bill requires the President, the Vice President, and certain candidates for those offices to disclose 10 years of tax returns. <Source>

This bill is the Senate version of the similarly-named House of Representatives bill, H.R. 1.

Bottom line…

The freedom to vote for elected officials and certain propositions is fundamental to the existence and maintenance of our Republic. Failing to protect the integrity of elections is tantamount to removing our borders – our country disappears in chaos or becomes a totalitarian state.

Should this disastrous legislation sneak through the Senate, the reconciliation process with the House, and be signed into law by a mentally incompetent President, look for a flood of court challenges.

With progressive communist democrats at the helm, we are fast steering into rocky waters. Not that the GOP is much better, but at least they are not malignantly anti-America, anti-White, anti-Semitic, and favoring totalitarianism.

We are so screwed.
