Pelosi to Push “Vote by Mail” Scheme in Next Round of Coronavirus Stimulus

pelosiSpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is promising to push funding for a more robust vote-by-mail system in the next coronavirus stimulus package.

Pelosi made the remark on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Wednesday. The speaker cited a Senate Intelligence Committee report that confirmed that Russia used misinformation to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

“No matter what the president says, it cannot be denied,” Pelosi said. “But it takes us to the next step. They have also told us 24/7 the Russians are still at work trying to undermine our election. That’s why we have to have an important chunk of money in this next bill that will enable us to protect the integrity of our elections, as well as enable the American people to vote by mail, especially at this time of a health danger in going to the polls.”

Democrats tried to strong-arm money for their vote-by-mail scheme in the first $2 trillion economic stimulus package that passed last month, but were rebuffed by Republicans and the president.

“The things they had in there were crazy,” Trump told Fox News at the time. “They had things — levels of voting that, if you ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”

Pelosi claimed that the president doesn’t like so-called vote-by-mail because he “does not have a winning message to share.”

“This is the lifeblood of our democracy, the vote,” Pelosi argued. “So, here we are trying to protect the lives of American people, the livelihoods of the American people, and also the life of our democracy. That is what we are going to do in the next bill as well.”

So, in order to protect “the life of our democracy,” we should make it easier to commit vote fraud?

On April 2, Pelosi tweeted that vote-by-mail was “essential” in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic: “Vote-by-mail is essential to protecting the future of our democracy as we confront this public health crisis. There is no legitimate argument against enacting it.”

How about the fact that it will make election fraud easier, thus making our elections less secure and less reliable? Is that a legitimate argument?

Pelosi is not the only Democrat pushing this vote-by-mail sham. In a piece for The Atlantic, former Hillary Clinton advisor Marc Elias wrote, “There is no question that voting by mail is an important part of the solution. It mitigates the problems of long lines and fosters social distancing.”

And former first lady Michelle Obama — who many are still hoping will be presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s VP pick — leads an organization called When We All Vote, which is also pushing the Democrats’ vote-by-mail plot. Mrs. Obama even claims that the scheme is non-partisan.

“There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life,” Mrs. Obama said.

So far, Republicans have been holding strong on not allowing COVID-19 to be an excuse to trash the entire election system. In an opinion piece for Fox News, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel wrote, “That is why we will continue to fight and win against attempts by Democrats to use the pandemic as an excuse to circumvent election integrity.”

McDaniel added that the GOP “will not throw out our most elementary promises of democracy, because agenda-driven Democrats do not want to let a pandemic go to waste.”

McDaniel is correct. Pelosi and the Democrats are using the COVID-19 pandemic as, according to South Carolina Democrat James Clyburn, “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit [their] vision.”

It makes no sense to combat “Russian election meddling” with this vote-by-mail scheme. It also doesn’t make sense to change the entire voting system because of a temporary situation as this pandemic surely is. You don’t “protect the integrity of our elections” by making it easier to cheat.

Nancy Pelosi is controlled by the devil! its time for all the Democrats to be voted OUT! How this Corona virus is being handled by the Democrat Governors is a sign of Communist or Socialist Government! The handling of the virus is way over done only to panic people and that is when they are easy to control. I’m against absentee ballots they should only be used for Military and business men out of the country. Voting absentee has gone out of control, people use it because they don’t want to change their plans for that day or stand in lines. That is ONE of the most important day for our future. The United States is full of corrupt high power people such as we are finding more about the FBI. This should be an eye opener to stay home and VOTE! This year is the most important election ever as we need to keep Trump in the House and Senate Republican and GET out of China. If a Democrat gets in China will run control the United States.

Voter ID and no voting by mail. These people have got to be stopped. This would even safe guard the vote for the liberals that vote for this stupid woman.

I find her hypocrisy stunning! The mail can’t even get cards to our grandsons and daughter in Ky, which is only 15 miles away! So how do we suppose they are more competent when it really counts, as in an election? No, Nutbutt Nanny is as corrupt as the day is long! She and her democrap buddies always want to lie, cheat, and steal anyway they can to win. NOT this time! She is the most heartless person ever in politics. If she is a Catholic she sure hurts their witness! ?. I’m not sure she even knows what the Bible says about lies and how to treat your neighbor? She better stop lying about being a caring Christian because there is a judgement day coming! We will all have to face that day. Such a sorry bunch of liars, cheaters, and corrupt democraps! ?

I live in Oregon. In 2000 Oregon began vote by mail in all elections. It opened the door to massive voter fraud and transforming the state from a conservative place to live into a liberal mess. Every election where the outcome is “too close to call,” the vote counters suddenly discover a box full of ballots, usually in the Portland area, and / or along the I-5 corridor, which puts the liberal candidate or ballot measure over the top in favor of the left.

The government bureaucrats boast there is no evidence of voter fraud. That’s because there is no investigation of fraud, because any investigation would need to be “complaint driven.” What that means is; in order to make a complaint the complainer must show evidence and identify individuals who have voted fraudulently. Citizens need to investigate and make specific allegations. If there is no “evidence” presented by a citizen, naming names, dates, times, etc., there is no cause to investigate. The legislature set up the vote-by-mail mandating no independent investigation by the Secretary of State, if there is no evidence of fraud. Another rigged system in favor of Democrats.

Almost overnight, Oregon changed from an independent state with conservative values, into a radical leftist socialist state.

do not make any attempts to vote by mail they have done this before many votes were changed or removed to make it easer for the left to win. They are good at cheating to win anything they do not play fair.

Vote by mail is great if you believe in on safe-guards. In our Washigton state anyone can get a drivers license and in getting it you are asked to sign-up to vote. The Seattle liberals, with the “Govener” controls the state. A few years ago it took three recounts for Seattle to find enough “lost vote” to get a demo “elected”. All our voting is now only by mail and the libs have conplete controle. JR

We lived in Washington state which was one of the leaders in all vote-by-mail. After the changed from polling stations, getting a Republican elected was a rarity. I am convinced the voting in Washington (esp. western WA) is rigged. Only dems are elected with a couple of token republicans allowed to avoid suspicion. I agree, vote-by-mail is just another scheme by the dems to steal elections.

Democrats have cheating and fraud down to a science. Can the Senate stop this if she gets it passed in the House?

Pelosi can NOT be allowed to steal our election – and as a result, our country – with mail-in ballots. Studies proved way back in, I believe, the Carter presidency, that the surest way to cheat or commit fraud in an election was with mail-in ballots. Pelosi and the Liberal Democrats know full well they aren’t able – with their abysmal record over the past 3 or 4 years – to beat Trump in November. That’s why this frantic push for mail-in ballots. Americas can’t afford to allow that to happen or our nation is lost.

These ridiculous schemes introduced by the two most socialistic democratic representatives is absurd. Read history lessons as to what happens to governments when little by little a government takes over more and more activities, as well as functions.

The more of this I read, the more I wonder how many government agencies or funded programs are in cahoots with this One World Government movement? Dems and Repubs alike seem to back this trend. WTF is going on?

Changing the way we vote is so disappointing.
This virus was nothing but the EXCUSE the donkeys needed to change life as we knew it. The donkeys are using FEAR to get to the People. So far they have won the population over. F E A R!
The only FEAR we should have is: THE FEAR OF GOD
God is always with Us. After all He lives in us, if you’re a born-again Christian. If you’re not born again I would be FEARFUL.
God placed a fearless spirit in us, and if I catch this manmade virus and die at least I wouldn’t have to live here on earth with all this corruption.
Today, my eyes have open to see the Spiritual Battle going on in the political arena. Satan is not giving up. And WE cannot give in to the donkeys fear tactics either.

Keep it real…PRAYER is POWER. PRAY for our President daily, for his strength, for his protection against the fiery darts of the enemies, for the same for his family and all close to him and his administration.
For your own protection so you do not surcome to the FEAR the donkeys are trying to instill in your mind.

Walk close w our God. Do His will n not yours
Blessings today
