False Narrative Pushing H.R.1 – Do Not Believe It

H.R.1 – or Senate companion S.1 – represents a bold, dangerous attempt to capture the American electoral system once and for all. The idea is to remake America as a one-party system. Anyone who cares must read the bill – then speak up, clearly and without being intimidated, for our two-party system.

What is happening – and happening fast – is Democrats are angling to lock in a permanent majority, unconstitutionally federalizing and changing our elections. Worse, they dress up this Greek tragedy in a false narrative – boldly telling America the bill is not what it is. Let us be clear. This bill does not credibly solve problems tied to vote suppression; it federally mandates practices that produce fraud, error, and vote suppression.

To be clear: Democrats argue purging active felons from voter rolls disproportionately affects minorities, yet sound public policies mitigate against felons voting – whatever their background. Today, 48 of 50 states do not allow felons to vote, and a large percentage – for serious crimes – do not restore the vote. If this affects minorities disproportionately, the aim is deterring crime, protecting the public, and not enfranchising those who patently disregard the rule of law.

Likewise, Democrats argue requiring in-person and in-precinct voting, identification, no ballot harvesting, no instant registration from DMVs or schools, no mass mail-in ballots, and no 16-year-old voting – suppresses minorities.

The logic is flawed. First, these provisions measurably reduce fraud, elevate accountability and responsibility in the exercise of the franchise. Second, they are neither race-based nor discriminatory. Polling places must be accessible; if not, that can be challenged. Identification is of many kinds, again assuring integrity.

Requiring people to vote where they live is not a suppresser. Ballot harvesting allows intimidation and manipulation by collectors – as no oversight; disallowing ballot harvesting protects the independent exercise of the vote by every voter.

Instant DMV registration sounds good, but 16 states and DC – as is their right – issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, not constitutionally entitled to vote for Congress or President. Accordingly, instant registration from DMV – ditto schools – fans fraud.  The absence of it does not disproportionately affect any citizen.

In short, the notion that this bill addresses voter suppression – and does so without intolerable impact on election veracity or truthfulness – is simply not true.  In sharp distinction, the bill pushes buttons producing fraud – historically in favor of Democrats. That intolerable fact is why the American Civil Liberties Union and Wall Street Journal’s (WSJ) editorial board both vehemently oppose the bill.

As Kimberly Strassel recently wrote in the WSJ: “The left and the media describe H.R.1 as a ‘voting rights’ and ‘campaign finance’ reform,” but “it is actually an unprecedented federal effort to dictate state voting rules.”  Specifically, “The bill would strip states of their authority to decide methods of balloting, election deadlines and most aspects of election security,” and “would mandate mail-in voting, impose registration rules, dictate ballot-return dates, and void identification standards … even limits states’ ability to draw congressional districts.” See, e.g., https://www.wsj.com/articles/democrats-sell-out-their-states-11614901621.

Beyond that critique, the bill mandates one-party control of the Federal Election Commission, green-lighting fraud.  It takes away state constitutional authority to redistrict, flying in the face of the Framers’ intent.  It chills free speech by mandating your name and address for personal “doxing,” intimidation, boycotts, and firings if you contribute to political action groups. And it mandates DC become a state, intended instantly to generate two Democrat US Senate seats.

So, let us get this straight.  This is not an anti-voter suppression bill.  This is a bold, filibuster-busting attempt at one-party rule, no check.  It kills constitutionally protected state, local and individual rights. This bill is not “For the People” – it is for crushing the people, twisting our electoral process, giving one-party power.

Notably, Strassel adds: “Some 33 states are evaluating legislation designed to avoid a repeat of the 2020 mess, in which courts and executive-branch officials overrode state law and many voters lost faith in the system.”

Putting a fine point on it, she notes: “The left and the media are now falsely branding these sensible efforts at clean elections as ‘voter suppression,” but “The real big lie is H.R.1 …a brazen attempt to rig the game for a permanent Democratic majority.” What is more, “proof is the fury with which the left is demanding the Senate kill the filibuster to pass H.R.1 with 51 votes ….”

Powerful facts: First, Americans must guard against false narratives: A bill that kills democracy is not for democracy. Second, Democrats are done with bipartisanship were before they started. Third, the century-old Senate filibuster – assuring 60 for big change is at risk. Fourth, this bill is a Trojan Horse, pushed to get inside the Republic’s walls and destroy a constitutionally protected electoral system. Needed are people who see and speak the truth to prevent that unthinkable outcome.

This whole thing fly’s in the face of The USA Constitution, and Bill of Rights, our Freedom, liberty. I sent a letter to my Senator quickly got a response of receiving. The next day got a form letter with very vague answers and not any FIRM Guarantee they’d be voting Against the Bill. I’m sad to say despite they are a claimed R. My House Rep clearly responded against this take over of the Election Process and made it crystal clear they’d vote No. Which they did. That’s why they nearly lost this last election and I pray someone way better runs against them next time.

I have also contacted my two US Senators, both Democrats. The two newly elected Senators from Georgia. Both initially sent auto-replies. Then Senator Warnock replied a second time that he intended to vote for the bill and defended his reasons why. I responded to his direct email, telling him how over-reaching the bill was, how protracted the voting time line had become, and that the voting measures put forth recently by the state of Georgia were not designed to suppress votes nor were they racially based. I concluded my letter to him by asking him tonight, when he was praying to God, to ask Him what was right for America and not just for his party. Let’s see if he responds to that!

An expression in response to Nan Brinson’s input. I say good for you. Being pro active is what we all need to do and correspond often with our representatives. I have found that I can do the same and get their newsletters and read the good deeds these folks are doing which I say bravo to, but when it goes before a judge it appears the judges smote it down no matter how many sign their signatures along with our representative. Sooooo….how does one get past the judges?

I believe you are saying, “Warnock has no fear of God, no respect for God, and no departing from evil (repenting of sin and evil doing).”

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom;
And to depart from evil is understanding.
Then you will discern the fear of the Lord
And discover the knowledge of God.
The fear of the Lord prolongs life…
In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence,
And his children will have refuge.
The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life,
That one may avoid the snares of death.
… by the fear of the Lord one keeps away from evil.
The fear of the Lord leads to life, So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.
The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord
Are riches, honor, and life.
Do not let your heart envy sinners,
But live in the fear of the Lord always.

Is that the fear of the Lord you meant? I hope so, because that’s what it is.
Most people think it is nothing more than reverence and respect. But:

It is the Lord of hosts whom you should regard as holy.
And He shall be your fear,
And He shall be your dread.

If this bill passes the Senate and is signed into law it will mean the end of our Republic. It will ensure one party control and is blatantly unconstitutional.God help us if there are too few Senate Democrats who will vote against it and uphold their oath of office.

The more I look at what the left is doing, the more I think they want civil war. Then the government can enact martial law. Shutting down the states and jailing whoever they deem radical. Power in our government is a tantalizing disease that most lawmakers what. The crop that’s in office now seems to want complete control of everything from our lives to our livelihoods. When most of them have very little experience in the most common everyday life experiences, like taking kids to school, getting groceries, or even driving themself to work. But they think they know what’s best for us (the everyday guy and gal). We the people need to take a step back, I (myself) am tired of these elite socialites with very little experience in real-life telling me how I have to live. We need to form a march or some kind of a shutdown, this might get some of their attention. I forget we are in compliance with this nonsense. Line us up like sheep and take us to slaughter. Sad days sad days. Soon it will be too late.

I agree with all you’ve said! And I agree with Barb’s note. Also, I detest the word “democratic” when used to describe the Democrats. There’s a big difference between “democratic” and “democrat.” The word “democratic” should be used only for actions that are democratic, not to describe a “democrat.”

You have it so correct in what you say Garye. I have tried to warn people ever since I returned from working in the soviet union and in the middle east (health care 1991-92) but no one would hear what I said. Except my husband who was born in Berlin in 1938 and knows what it is like to live under the real tyranny of socialism and communism. I wish people in this country were not so into the woke culture the young people have chosen. That is where this beautiful country is headed. It is so clear to me and I am in my 80’s. I shall never give u “the good fight”. Thank you, Carol

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) to right this ship of state and restore our beloved country to its former status.

If the future elections are as dishonest and free wheeling as the last election, the Constitutional democracy of this Nation is lost (L-O-S-T) and becomes a hybrid of Communism and control by one small group of so-called citizens using the Military and Law Enforcement elements of our system to have a first priority of protecting its power.

The Destroy America Agenda (DAA). It is not limited to or controlled by any one of America’s foreign and domestic adversaries:
1) the Eurocentric globalist empire, founded upon FINANCE (credit, monetary policy, international exchange (rates), fomenting and financing WAR, buying up distressed companies, economies, and currencies, and buying out insolvent governments and even countries with populations.
2) the Umma, the worldwide nation of Is|am, financed by oil, empowered by brutal, demonic violence, and motivated by fear of an ultimate malevolent FORCE, a god of FORCES (Daniel 11:36-39).
3) the Kings of the East (the Orient):
the CCP;
its nuclear weaponized proxy, N. Korea;
its Asian trading partners, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan;
its allies, Russia (when opposing the West), Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Nigeria, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, small Carribean coastal states in South America, and some smaller principalities, like Fiji, Kiribati, Micronesia, and the Seychelles (?);
and the CCP’s fellow travelers in Washington, D.C., situated in posts of influence and embedded
on vantages of subterfuge.
4) the narco-states:
the Taliban in the Hindu Kush of Wazyristan (Pakistan) and Afghanistan;
the military of Myanmar, which controls the poppy crop in the Golden Triangle of northern Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand;
and the coca-collectong cartels of Cali and Medellin, Colombia, and the cocaine distributing cartels of Mexico and the U.S..

Several years ago, the Kenyan Commander-in-Thief culled non-compliant officers who were unwilling to order firing upon U.S. citizens.

Congress had already issued blanket permission for posse comitatus to be suspended whenever. Also, the states’ National Guard units, along with state and municipal police, had been wreaking deadly force upon protesters:
since the Orangeburg (S.C.) Massacre on Feb. 8, 1968, when the S.C. Highway Patrol shot fleeing student protesters in the back, killing 3 and wounding 28 others;
and since the protests during the Democratic National Convention in Chicago on August 26-29, 1968;
and since the Kent State Univ. shootings on May 4, 1970, when the Ohio National Guard shot and killed 4 student protesters and wounded 9 more.

The U.S. Congress abdicated its Constitutional authority to suspend posse comitatus on a case by case basis in the Defense Authorization Act for 2007. Under cover of the war on terrorism, this act granted the president authority to employ the military to restore public order, without getting further permission from Congress.

In the case of using the U.S. armed forces in a foreign land, Congress goes to the mat demanding its exclusive authority to declare war against a foreign power… just not in cases of fighting using deadly force against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.
