Well, here we are at another critical turning point in Washington D.C. with only 65-plus days in office not a day has gone by where the Democratic Socialists (just trying to be polite) in the White House have regulated or legislated another one of our freedoms away.
As the hearing in the Senate progressed, what I heard was deeply disturbing, as Senator Ted Cruz states, “The Corrupt Politicians Act” The real name of the act below has been misleadingly titled for the public’s deception a.k.a. “S.1 – A bill to expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and implement other anti-corruption measures for the purpose of fortifying our democracy, and for other purposes”.
This bill would strike down virtually every state with voter integrity laws. Twenty nine states have voter I.D. laws and the bill would eliminate all of these laws so you don’t need identification to vote. This bill mandates ballot harvesting, it mandates that states must allow paid political operatives to, for example go into nursing homes and collect hundreds of ballots. The majority of states with ballot harvesting prohibit this ballot harvesting is because it is ripe with opportunity to be fraught with fraud, because these operatives can throw away the votes they don’t like and keep the ones they do.
Senator Ted Cruz states that in 2005, the Carter-Baker Commission (chaired by former Democratic President Jimmy Carter) concluded that ballot harvesting posed a serious risk for voter fraud. Now the Democrats are trying to mandate it because they believe the fraud would benefit them. More broadly, this bill would automatically register to vote anyone that has interaction with the government. Specifically, if you get a welfare check, drivers license, unemployment check, or attend a public university, every single one involved in these programs automatically is registered Democrat. This will register millions of illegal immigrants to vote illegally, however, the Democrats are doing this because they understand that millions of illegal immigrants voting will provide benefit to the Democrats. Further, this bill will strike down all state laws prohibiting felons from voting. This law says that any criminal, once released from prison gets to vote regardless of the charges. This bill is nothing more than a power grab by the Democrats designed to take away your right to vote in a fair election.
The Democrat talking point is that anyone that opposes this bill is Bull Connor (American politician and member of the Democratic Party who served as Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama, for more than two decades. He strongly opposed the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s). They put everything in terms of race and strangely enough they wrote the Jim Crow laws and they founded the KKK! These are empty and hypocritical talking points.
Additionally, this bill takes on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that was established 50 years ago as a bi-partisan commission of three Republicans and three Democrats so it would be fair and balanced for both parties. Senator Cruz vehemently feels that The Corrupt Politicians Act makes it a partisan body by removing one of the Republican members. This would allow Chuck Schumer to have control over the commission that has the power to fine, sue and prosecute his political opponents. Every Republican Senator will get fined and prosecuted when Schumer is able to weaponize the FEC. This is solely designed to keep Democrats in power AD Infinitum and to do this they are willing to take away your voting rights.
Senator Cruz states further, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a challenge to Indiana’s photo I.D. law when he was the Solicitor General of Texas. He led a coalition to the Court and Photo I.D. law was upheld by a 6-3 vote. Justice Paul Stevens, the most liberal Justice on the Court, wrote the major opinion. He said voter fraud is real and is a threat, with photo I.D. laws being designed to protect the integrity of elections, and when you have illegal voting (such as illegal immigrants and criminals under the Corrupt Politician Act) it dilutes everyone else’s vote. That’s what the Democrats are trying to do with this despicable power grab.
We must contact every Senator and express our deep concerns over this bill and the uncontainable effect it will have on our country.
