In a speech this week, President Joe Biden compared anyone who disagrees with a national takeover of elections to Confederate leader Jefferson Davis and suggested dissent is tantamount to racism. (Presumably that goes for lawmakers in his own party, like Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who oppose the plan). The president, along with Vice President Kamala Harris, falsely claimed Republicans are trying to make it more difficult to vote.
Why such hyperbole? Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and other Democrat leaders are scared to lose congressional seats in the 2022 midterms, so they want to initiate a radical federal takeover of our nation’s elections.
Biden and Harris’s poll numbers, even those recorded by leftist pollsters, are atrocious. After Congress’s failure to pass legislation to boost the administration’s reputation, Democrats’ numbers are also waning, leaving already worried leaders even more concerned that they could lose power in at least the House.
Democrats want a radical, unconstitutional takeover of elections because they are afraid they are going to lose big in midterms. Ever since they underperformed in 2020, Democrats have readily admitted that they can’t, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez said, “rely solely on a wish of winning elections.”
“If we deliver, we maintain power in 2022,” Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman said during Democrats’ 2021 push to pass H.R.1, a radical bill designed to eliminate the opportunity for states to protect themselves against modifications that were weaponized in the 2020 election.
As a result, Biden and his administration are ignoring Democrats’ hypocrisy on the filibuster and urging for its abolition so they can manipulate elections and control the results of upcoming midterms, where dozens of Democrats are vulnerable.
It’s a strategy that worked well for Democrats in 2020, which was riddled with problems created by Democrat operatives such as Marc Elias. He coordinated a leftist-funded effort to change hundreds of election laws in the months leading up to the election. As a result, tens of millions of questionable mail-in ballots swamped the election system and millions more Americans lost trust and confidence in the United States to host “free and fair elections,” which some ignorant Republicans still proclaim is ensured.
This power grab blueprint, however, is not lost on the GOP. As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell noted in a statement on Wednesday, “Democrats are trying to use their fake hysteria to justify breaking Senate rules so they can seize control of elections in all 50 states.”
Other Republicans such as Sen. Marco Rubio took it one step further and noted that, contrary to the White House and corporate media’s propaganda about voting rights, “Democrats’ Voting Rules Takeover Is A Threat To Democracy.”
Democrats have loudly whined about losing elections in the past. They threw tantrums when the presidential results didn’t match what they had hoped, planned, and covered for.
In 2020, Democrats called Sen. Josh Hawley’s election concerns a “coup attempt” after they objected to every GOP presidential certification this century. In 2016, multiple House Democrats attempted to object to the electoral votes from several states naming Donald Trump as the presidential victor.
These representatives cited concerns over the now-disproved Russia hoax and potentially “hacked” voting machines but were ultimately overruled by then-Vice President Biden, who repeated that objections were required to be in writing and signed by someone from each chamber of Congress. Just two years later, in 2018, Stacey Abrams refused to concede in the race for Georgia governorship.
Democrats aren’t keen on losing elections, and they will do everything in their power to ensure that they don’t lose miserably in 2022. To them, the ends justify the means, even if the means call for the most abject and blatant hypocrisy on the filibuster.
