It is hardly a conspiracy when the plan to interfere in coming elections is spelled out in a Presidential Executive Order…

Executive Order 14019 of March 7, 2021 -- Promoting Access to Voting (Excerpts)

[OCS: How the scheme works is relatively simple. Concentrate federal agency money and programs to “get out the vote” in swing states and population centers that favor Democrats. And to give the appearance of bi-partisan application of the order, provide support in areas where the GOP is already disadvantaged.]

Sec. 3. Expanding Access to Voter Registration and Election Information.

Agencies shall consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process.

(a) The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation. This effort shall include consideration of:

(i) ways to provide relevant information in the course of activities or services that directly engage with the public—including through agency materials, websites, online forms, social media platforms, and other points of public access—about how to register to vote, how to request a vote-by-mail ballot, and how to cast a ballot in upcoming elections;

(ii) ways to facilitate seamless transition from agencies’ websites directly to State online voter registration systems or appropriate Federal websites, such as;

(iii) ways to provide access to voter registration services and vote-by-mail ballot applications in the course of activities or services that directly engage with the public, including:

[OCS: Ensure the system is awash in blank ballots.]

(A) distributing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms, and providing access to applicable State online systems for individuals who can take advantage of those systems;

[OCS: Ensure the ballots are filled out the “right way.”]

(B) assisting applicants in completing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms in a manner consistent with all relevant State laws; and

[OCS: Allow allegedly non-partisan organizations to camp out on federal property. Denying some organizations equal access.]

(C) soliciting and facilitating approved, non-partisan third-party organizations and State officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises;

(iv) ways to promote and expand access to multilingual voter registration and election information, and to promote equal participation in the electoral process for all eligible citizens of all backgrounds; and

(v) whether, consistent with applicable law, any identity documents issued by the agency to members of the public can be issued in a form that satisfies State voter identification laws.

[OCS: Overseeing the programs is one of the most corrupt and partisan of the Obama acolytes, Susan Rice, the current Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. For those who do not remember, Rice was associated with lies about the Benghazi scandal, the Trump-Russia hoax, the unmasking scandal, and the last-minute self-serving memo attempting to exonerate Barack Obama by quoting him using the phrase “by the book” in a January 5, 2017 meeting discussing spying on an American citizen and Trump appointee General Mike Flynn. The duplicitous Rice sent the memo to herself on January 20, at 12:15 p.m., just after President Trump was sworn in at noon that day.]

(b) Within 200 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation.

[OCS: The 200 days ended on December 22, 2021, and excluded weekends and federal holidays. No federal agency has responded to a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request revealing the plan, the budget, or the implementation more than six months after the deadline.]

[OCS:  Allow federal agencies to act as state-approved registration centers.]

(c) The head of each agency shall evaluate where and how the agency provides services that directly engage with the public and, to the greatest extent practicable, formally notify the States in which the agency provides such services that it would agree to designation as a voter registration agency pursuant to section 7(a)(3)(B)(ii) of the National Voter Registration Act.

[OCS:  Provide voting opportunities to federal employees and contractors that may not be available to employees in the private sector. Since most government workers vote Democrat to preserve funding and employment, this would benefit the Democrats. Additionally, insert partisan government employees into state election systems.]

Sec. 6. Increasing Opportunities for Employees to Vote.

(a) coordinate with the heads of executive agencies, as defined in 5 USC 105, to provide recommendations to the President, through the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, on strategies to expand the Federal Government’s policy of granting employees time off to vote in Federal, State, local, Tribal, and territorial elections. Such recommendations should include efforts to ensure Federal employees have opportunities to participate in early voting.

(b) Coordinate with the heads of executive agencies, as defined in 5 USC 105, to provide recommendations to the President, through the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, on strategies to better support Federal employees who wish to volunteer to serve as non-partisan poll workers or non-partisan observers, particularly during early or extended voting periods.

[OCS: Capture the prison and probation vote – which can be coercively manipulated and anonymized to allow ineligible felons to vote. And since a high proportion of incarcerated Democrat-voting minorities and Democrats are soft on crime, the benefit of this provision is decidedly Democrat. The Democrat translation of facilitating is coercing. Note, they also go after “formerly incarcerated” individuals.] 

Sec. 9. Ensuring Access to Voter Registration for Eligible Individuals in Federal Custody.

(a) The Attorney General shall establish procedures, consistent with applicable law, to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting and, to the extent practicable, to facilitate voter registration, for all eligible individuals in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

(c) The Attorney General shall establish procedures, consistent with applicable law, for coordinating with the Probation and Pretrial Services Office of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting to all eligible individuals under the supervision of the Probation and Pretrial Services Office, and to facilitate voter registration and voting by such individuals.

(d) The Attorney General shall take appropriate steps, consistent with applicable law, to support formerly incarcerated individuals in obtaining a means of identification that satisfies State voter identification laws, including as required by 18 USC 4042(a)(6)(B). 

The plan is not a secret...


Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) and House Election Integrity Caucus Chairs Claudia Tenney (R-NY) and Mike Garcia (R-CA) led a coalition of 36 House members to send a letter to Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget Shalanda Young requesting documents and an investigation into President Biden’s executive order empowering every federal agency to engage in election-related activities.

First, the EO commands the head of every federal agency to submit to the President’s Domestic Policy Advisor, Ms. Susan Rice, a plan outlining the steps their agency will take to “promote voter registration and voter participation.” It makes no sense for agencies that do not enforce federal voting laws to engage in election-related activities. Commanding every federal agency to develop a plan to engage in this kind of election activity is a blatant overreach of power and authority.

Second, the EO mandates that all federal agencies support “approved” third-party organizations to provide voter registration services on federal agency premises located in states across the nation. Determining which third-party organizations will be approved, by whom, and based on what criteria is conveniently missing from the EO. We are concerned that agencies will not be prevented from selecting nominally-nonpartisan organizations to carry out these services.

Third, and perhaps most troubling, this EO is nearly identical to a federal election takeover plan crafted by the radical left-leaning group known as Demos. A cursory review of this EO reveals a striking similarity between what this EO calls for and the plan developed by Demos and published on their website in December 2020. What is more, the Demos plan also called for the weaponization of the DOJ to be used as a tool to attack opponents who stand in the way of attempts to federalize elections. We have already seen this take shape with the Biden DOJ’s meritless lawsuit attacking Georgia’s election integrity law, and the recent voting guidance published by the DOJ. That guidance—a thinly veiled threat against those states that are willing to stand up to this administration’s effort to federalize elections—is troubling.

This EO’s strategy appears to enable the Biden administration to use federal government resources, funded by American taxpayers, to circumvent newly-passed state election integrity laws. These laws make it easier to vote and harder to cheat. The Biden Administration’s ongoing efforts to federalize state-run elections will erode these important protections. <Source>

Bottom line...

This appears to be a violation of the Hatch Act of 1939, which was passed to prohibit civil service employees in the executive branch from engaging in some forms of political activity. 

Like anything involving the progressive communist democrats, it is likely to serve our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

We are so screwed.
