Posted on 07/25/2013 7:48:14 AM PDT by kevcol
In the coming weeks, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is expected to announce that the Justice Department is using other sections of the Voting Rights Act to bring lawsuits or take other legal action to prevent states from implementing certain laws, including requirements to present certain kinds of identification in order to vote. The department is also expected to try to force certain states to get approval, or pre-clearance, before they can change their election laws.

There. Fixed it.
Wow! Evil stands at our door folks!
Meanwhile, the IRS and other agencies of the Federal government will continue to actively suppress the rights of voters with whom the Administration disagrees.
The SCOTUS should summon him to the court and publicly bitch slap Holder for thinking that their ruling only weeks ago stripping these type provisions from the Voting Rights Act somehow doesn’t apply to his version of justice.
Black leaders really do think that white America is at war with blacks because black leaders are always at war with whites. It’s projection.
Please call 919-814-2000 and tell Gov. McCrory youre for (1) expanding Concealed Carry and (2) the voting bill that, among other things, bars people under guardianship from voting.
The second one is going to cause a first class stink, but I had the experience of voting in a booth beside a young man who did not know how to use a pencil, what voting was, or what a ballot was. He absolutely did not have a clue in this world what a candidate was. And, yet, his vote, made with the loud and constant help of a poll worker (?) counted as much as mine. This fellow looked normal, but something was BAD WRONG. Theres no way he could have been living independently, and I cannot understand why we insist on giving severely mentally handicapped people a vote a real vote that determines our collective fates for years to come.
I heard several mothers say that voting means so much to their autistic and mentally challenged children that their children are passionate about voting. But, voting for what? Ernie and Bert? The candidate their guardians like?
AG Holder is going to have apoplexy over both these bills.
Civil Rights Division = Black Panthers
It’s a Holder end around the Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act.. He’s looking for a legal means, any means, to disregard the spirit of the SCOTUS decision and, in so doing, is disregarding the spirit of checks-and-balances.
"In the interest of Inclusion, Fairness for All and in order to lower the consumption of Greenhouse-Gas-Producing ("Boooo! Hisssss!, Booo!) petroleum products all polling places will be closed. Ballot Boxes are banned.
For my next re-election, election results will be determined by the total number of Facebook "Likes" and Twitter "Followers".
Remember, Vote early & Vote Often!"
Hopefully one of the affected states will quickly appeal to the federal district court, unless they go directly to their justice on the SCOTUS, to get an injunction against the Just Us Department.
Ted Cruz or Gov Perry should offer the following regarding Holder:
“Yes, there was a time in the south where racism was part of the restrictive practices of the government in power. However, as more Republicans have been voted into office in these southern states, much has been done to remove the racist policies that were put in place by over 100 years of democRATs holding the majority of elected office.”
When the Supreme Court makes a decision that is repugnant to the majority of Americans, we have to put up and shut up. When they make a ruling this administration doesn’t like, the criminals in charge actually challenge it and forge ahead anyway. Despicable.
Ignore them. They ignore anything they don’t want to do. It’s time to just tell the feds to get stuffed unless they are ready to start the shooting.
lot’s of families take their loved ones in nursing home to vote.
What else is in this bill
