Fueled by control of the Congressional House and amygdala seared by three years of Trump Derangement Syndrome, the Democrats’ first move in post-midterm Congress is to revoke the voting rights of non-Democrats. House bill HR 1 will enact on a Federal level the vote fraud recently perfected in Oregon, New York and my home California.
Get Ready: California-Style Elections Are Coming to Your State
By Ellen Swensen, 25 January 2019
If you thought the 2018 elections in California were a mess, you were right. Dangerous new election laws and lax practices contributed to that mess, and now they want the rest of the nation to suffer the way Californians do.
First, the mess. Election Integrity Project, California (EIPCa), a group of concerned citizens in California, has been documenting problems in the state’s election system for years. We have done the hard, messy work on the ground to catalog the problems.
California election officials and legislators have turned our elections into a free-for-all, with few safeguards, all in the name of “voter access.”
Recent initiatives include “top two” primary elections, automatic voter registration, allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections, allowing mail ballots to arrive after Election Day, rejecting voter ID, removing restrictions on who can handle and return mail ballots (aka ballot “harvesting”), same-day registration and voting, allowing voters to “cure” their mail ballot signature mismatches via the honor system and, in 2020, providing all registrants with mail ballots.
Democrats are the ones who benefit from universal suffrage because human nature is selfish and egotistical. The bigger the mob, the easier it becomes to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
Similarly, voting by mail is popular with Dems because there’s no witnesses. When voting is done in person at centralized locations, that’s when IDs and residency can be easily verified. But ballots that show up at a post office, how can one know whether they were individually filled out by the person they were purportedly mailed to?
Also, note that motor vehicle records are not related to residency status. Nobody barred from voting is automatically restricted from driving on the roads.
The article goes into several case studies of how these changes result in vote fraud. Example:
…These voters had no ballots to surrender and were forced to vote provisionally on Election Day, resulting in an unprecedented surge of provisional ballots in many counties. Los Angeles County, for example, had to process about 400,000 provisional ballots compared to 100,000 in the last midterm. They attributed most of the 300,000 ballot increase to mail voters who had no mail ballot to surrender, illustrating the magnitude of the problem.
Which is how several counties had more than 100% voter turnout in the past election.
Let’s move on to HR 1 as described by Huffington Post.
States And Cities Have Already Shown Democrats’ Election Reforms Will Work
By Paul Blumenthal and Sam Levine, 10 January 2019
A sweeping reform bill that House Democrats say will be their first priority after ending the partial government shutdown is filled with policies that would fundamentally alter the nation’s voting and campaign finance systems. These policies are not coming out of nowhere. Most of them have been implemented and tested in cities and states across the country.
“Within the last five or six years, you just got more and more of these solutions happening at the state and local level,” said Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.), the bill’s chief sponsor. “It’s not a unicorn. It’s not like we’re talking about something that exists in the atmosphere of Jupiter. This is happening in America.”
…Democrats’ H.R. 1, which they’re calling the For the People Act. The bill’s campaign finance provisions on public election financing, dark money disclosure and democracy vouchers have all been field tested. The same is true of automatic voter registration, felon re-enfranchisement and the use of independent, nonpartisan redistricting commissions.
Automatic Voter Registration
Since 2015, 15 states and the District of Columbia have adopted automatic voter registration, a popular reform among advocates who believe it can significantly expand the number of people on the voting rolls in the United States.
Oregon, considered the model for automatic voter registration, was the first state in the country to pass it in 2015. While it’s still relatively early to assess the impact, the early evidence is encouraging.
AVR has been around for barely two elections and its own supporters admit that it’s early to assess the impact. But we should make it national policy because:
…In a little over a year and a half, the policy added 375,000 people to the voter rolls. A 2017 analysis from the left-leaning Center for American Progress found over 116,000 people had been added to the rolls who wouldn’t have otherwise registered.
Automatic voter registration also went into effect in California last year, where it added 727,924 new voters to the rolls since its launch in April and updated the addresses of 269,365 people. (There were around 5.5 million eligible but unregistered voters in the state as of October.)
They mean new votes, not new voters. There’s a difference.
Automatic Restoration Of Voting Rights For People With Felony Convictions
Forty-eight states don’t allow people with felony convictions to vote while they are incarcerated, but states have widely different policies on when and how ex-felons can get back their right to vote. …
The For the People Act aims to fix this problem by automatically restoring voting rights once someone is released from prison. Currently, 13 states and the District of Columbia do this, but having a federal statute would help make the process easier for everyone involved.
They don’t care about making the process easier. They care about making it mandatory.
Dark Money Disclosure
The Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision led to an explosion of undisclosed money spent by nonprofits, trade associations and corporate entities in elections. Congress attempted to fix the court’s collateral damage to transparency with the Disclose Act in 2010, but it fell one vote short of clearing a Republican filibuster in the Senate.
States have since stepped in to pass their own Disclose Acts or to issue regulations to stop dark money in state elections.
Democrats want to know where their enemies get their funding.
This one was new even to me, which illustrates how quickly the Democrats are moving on these fraud-facilitating initiatives.
A little-noticed provision in Democrats’ big reform bill would create a pilot program for “democracy vouchers” ― a proposal to provide every citizen with vouchers that can be used as small-dollar political donations. These vouchers would come in $25 increments, but could be used to give donations as low as $1.
The “democracy vouchers” idea was first proposed by constitutional law professor Bruce Ackerman decades ago, but had never been adopted until Seattle voters backed a 2015 initiative to implement the idea. The program has already enabled a large number of people who would otherwise be incapable of affording political donations, including homeless people, to participate in the political process by contributing to candidates.
What’s the only thing better that lots of money in politics? Lots of TAXPAYER money in politics to be spent by not-taxpayers! Why should Democrats have to do their own fundraising?
Early Voting And Same-Day Registration
The For the People Act would require states to allow people to register on the same day they vote and to allow voters to cast ballots for at least 15 consecutive days before Election Day. It would require poll sites to be open at least four hours each of those days and, to the greatest extent possible, that they be located near public transportation.
Twenty states and the District of Columbia have approved some form of same-day registration. It’s seen as a reform that can greatly drive up voter participation rates because people start paying more attention to an election the closer it gets. Federal law currently lets states cut off voter registration 30 days before an election. Activists also embrace early voting because it gives people more time to go to the polls at their convenience.
Yes, America has a serious national problem: millions of eligible voters refuse to vote except on Sunday afternoons. /sarcasm Seriously, the real purpose of this is allowing people to vote twice thanks to the impossibility of coordinating who voted when, where, on a national scale, accurately enough to prosecute fraud before it alters the outcome of an election.
The proof that this initiative is exclusively to facilitate vote fraud is that the abovementioned “motor voter” ruling would make same-day registration moot.
Independent Redistricting Commissions
H.R. 1 would require states to create independent commissions that would be responsible for drawing congressional districts. State lawmakers currently have the power to draw districts once a decade, and both parties have manipulated that process to their advantage. In 2011, Republicans saw an opportunity to take control of state legislatures, control the redistricting process and lock in an electoral advantage for the next decade. They executed that plan extremely precisely and well.
Six states ― Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana and Washington ― use independent redistricting commissions to draw lines for state or congressional districts.
Which means 44 states don’t like the idea and House Democrats want to override how they’re allowed to run their own state government. Meanwhile, Democrats love the idea of independent government anything because it’s an absolution of responsibility. They can put in place all the “checks and balances” they
pretend want but the truth is, whatever result these independent commissions come up with can’t be overridden no matter how lopsided.
Small-Donor Public Financing
The For the People Act’s main campaign finance reform is the creation of a small-donor matching system to publicly finance congressional elections. It is based on the decades-old public financing program run for New York City elections.
Even more taxpayer money in the hands of registered parasites!
New York adopted a small-donor matching system to publicly finance its elections in 1988 in response to a series of corruption scandals throughout city government. At the time, the system provided a 1-to-1 match for donations of $1,000 or less. A candidate received $1 in public funds for every $1 of a contribution up to $1,000. But the system has changed to boost the power of small donors over the years.
Nothing the New York gov’t does… either state or NYC… is something your state should be doing. One exception for broken-window policing.
New York City’s system has enabled candidates ― especially those from less affluent neighborhoods ― to more consistently rely on small donors in their districts.
“Less affluent” = “not middle class”
Trump’s Presidency has been great for convincing the enemies of Christ and Country to stand up and be recognized, but unless they get punished for their massive crimes and conspiracies then the agitation of Trump Derangement Syndrome will only have served to hasten America’s death.
We are quickly running out of time to Build the Wall and Drain the Swamp.
