Stop the Democrats’ Next Sheer Desperation Act

Demonstration for the Freedom to Vote Act

Massive efforts by conservatives to deny President Biden and his radical Democrats their $4+ trillion so-called Build Back Better plan succeeded by a razor thin margin of one in the Senate. The BBB was to have been the Democratic mega-ton bomb for transforming America to Socialism. Now, realizing national rejection of their diabolical plan portends both congressional houses will turn to a Republican majority in November, they are crazed in desperation to shove an ultra-liberal voting rights bill down the throats of the citizens. This bill would all but guarantee millions more liberal Democrat votes through guise and trickery. Do we weary conservatives have one more fight in us?

America enjoys the most free and unencumbered voting of any democracy on the face of the earth. The only improvement that might be needed is to lessen cheating by requiring a photo ID to vote and making the vote easier in certain limited cases. Conservative Republicans support both adjustments. However, the last election’s plethora of broken voting rules and disregarded tradition to accommodate COVID resulted in record numbers of Democrat votes often by questionable means. Democrats were ecstatic and are now determined to make the COVID Democratic voter advantages the new normal.

Last year, the Democrats introduced an ambitious legislation to expand voting rights from the federal level. This “For the People Act” would have changed almost every aspect of how elections are conducted. Much of the election process would have been taken from the states and assumed by the federal government including funding campaigns with federal money. Fortunately, the Senate Republicans filibustered the bill in June, and it died for lack of 60 votes. This stirring of the Democrats’ hornets nest sent them racing head long into a shift to the Build Back Better bill to get a least some kind of victory passed for the radical left’s socialist agenda. Then, when that didn’t work, thanks to moderate Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, the hornets surged out of control.

This last ditch effort for the Democrats to run rough-shod over elections at the federal government level is Senate Bill S. 2747 renamed the “Freedom to Vote Act.” It would make voter registration automatic and on the same day as the election. There would be little control over who is really eligible to vote and where. It would allow very early voting by mail by everyone. It would place ballot drop boxes on the streets with little oversight. Election Day would be a legal public holiday. Released felons would be allowed to vote. The federal government funding of campaigns through matching of private contributions times six is still in the bill. There are many other bad ideas in the bill, but the bottom line and purpose of the legislation is to give distinct advantages to Democratic voters in blue states. Its methodology would be to create a federal electoral system that would allow Democrats a permanent majority in the House and Senate and a continuous Democrat president in the White House.

There is hardly any chance the Freedom to Vote Act would pass the 50-50 Senate with the filibuster. Therefore, Senator Schumer has now publicly declared that the Senate will make every attempt to end the filibuster which is a long-standing bipartisan process that protects the will of the American people from being rolled over by a slim majority of Senators. The filibuster has worked in favor of the Democrats many times in recent history. But for this crop of intransigent leftests in the Senate, these are desperate times. For them, if the Senate processes have to be broken to get what the radical left wants, so be it. A few years ago, Schumer, himself, declared that eliminating the filibuster would turn the country “into a banana republic, where if you don’t get your way, you change the rules. Are we gonna let them (Republicans)? It will be doomsday for Democracy if we do.” Without the filibuster, one Senator could determine whether the bill passes or fails. Or Vice President Harris could pass the bill in a Senate strictly partisan tie vote. Please watch this closely, and contact whomever you can to help keep the filibuster alive and our precious American voting system true to its historical integrity.

The President’s Call for Unity Followed by Blatantly Divisive Actions

President Biden stacks the Trump reversals

At the end of President Biden’s inaugural speech, I posted that his call to unity would be proven sincere or hollow within a week. It took him only a matter of hours to alienate half the nation. Let’s review his immediate divisive actions and inactions.

  • The most blatant disunity action was actually the president’s inaction on the impeachment of Donald Trump. America is essentially split evenly on whether the former president should be impeached a second time. This impeachment is arguably bogus on its merits and its constitutionality. The most unifying move the president could have made to underscore his appeal for unity would have been too head off this debacle of a process. He could have easily picked up the phone and called Pelosi asking her to back off in deference to his need for a peaceful start to his presidency. He could still do this with Schumer.
  • Then he immediately began constructing his own wall–a two-foot high stack of executive orders overriding many of Trump’s conservative advancements. Most of these advancements were vital to our nation’s security and prosperity as well as supported passionately by, again, half of Americans.
  • He restricted immigration enforcement, removed limitations on asylum, stopped all deportations, added illegals to the census count, and shut down further building of the wall. Caravans with thousands of illegal immigrants immediately formed in Central America and began heading toward our boarder (deja-vu?). Border security that had finally become orderly and effective is now back in chaos, and American jobs are threatened again.
  • He halted the Keystone Pipeline abruptly ending thousands of jobs. That combined with his promise of major cutbacks in fracking will likely end American oil and gas independence. Watch gas prices soar.
  • He reentered the Paris Climate Accords recommitting America to more than our country’s share of environmental restrictions while giving China and other countries a pass. The U.S. already exceeds the requirements of the Accords without this commitment.
  • He reversed former President Trump’s ban on transgender recruits in the military. Former President Obama had cleared transgender persons to openly serve in our armed forces without restriction, but Trump canceled that order. Now, under President Biden, biological men will be allowed to identify as females, dress in female uniforms, and be housed with women. Likewise, biological women will dress as men and will live in male quarters. Biological males and females will be forced to shower together, especially on deployments, in wall-mounted showers with no dividers (typical in the military). Directives have been distributed to all U.S. military personnel that cooperation and respect will be demanded of everyone in this co-mingling of the genders. As a retired military officer, I find it extremely difficult to even write about this unfathomable situation.

These are just a few examples of the radical leftist agenda of this president’s first few days in office. To put this in perspective, his 30 executive orders and directives in his first three days without advice or debate compare to Trump’s and Obama’s first week with four and five such orders respectively. Unity? I haven’t seen it yet.

With this election, America has taken a deep dive into radical cancel-culture socialism with little regard for the Constitution. And I believe we have seen only the first hints of what is to come. The saddest part of this is that multi-millions of conservatives voted for our present condition. Their votes for Biden were not for him or his agenda. Their votes were simply against Trump because they didn’t like his personality and demeanor. I didn’t like that part of Trump either. But I loved what he did for America to keep us from where we are now going.

I voted with over 74 million others for a president who did more to better American lives than any other president in my lifetime. I just hope and pray that the anti-Trump conservatives will see what is happening now and at least build a conservative congressional majority firewall in 2022–if it’s not too late by then.
