Nancy Pelosi's Democrats seek to impose California-style electoral rigging onto the rest of America
American Thinker ^ | 01/25/2019 | Monica Showalter

Posted on 01/25/2019 7:48:51 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Having their priorities, Nancy Pelosi's Democrats are focused on what matters most to them: Their own permanent rule.

Right out the gate, they've put out this House bill, vowing to California-fy the nation's election laws. Former Justice department official, J. Christian Adams, writing in the Washington Examiner, has a disturbing report:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made a gargantuan overhaul of election law, campaign finance, and ethics rules the top priority of House Democrats. Contrast this move with the Republicans in 2017 — the Democratic Party and its allies understand there is a difference between winning elections versus big idea debates.

H.R. 1, her proposal, is not likely to clear the Senate, but that’s not the point.

H.R. 1, her proposal, is not likely to clear the Senate, but that’s not the point. It is a marketing document intended to broach the idea of federalizing some progressive state policies while trying to squeeze more conservative locales into adopting them as well. Taken as a whole, the only saving grace to the bill is that it does not contain a prosecution shield for noncitizens who are automatically registered to vote — something California has done.

This bill also comes with the benefit of already exhibiting critical failures in the laboratories of bad ideas, like California and others. But automatic voter registration and relaxed voter roll maintenance standards are not a threat to the proponents, if they know how to massage the chaos before a big election.

Many of the provisions that have made California a one-party state, are now being taken national. There would be automatic voter registration any time someone applies for a driver’s license, with few safeguards against non-citizens registering, and lots of potential for multiple registrations from single voters.

There also would be big roadblock thrown at any state that seeks to clean up its voter rolls from such double- and triple-registration, which could occur if someone gives his full name on one form and maybe uses a middle initial on another.

They are already working on it in Virginia.
Our Governor wants to do away with voter ID which we have always had.

It is what happens when ignorant voters do not fight back. Crime and corruption take over.

Praying that Ronna McDaniel and the RNC are taking measures to combat Vote Harvesting next year.

Otherwise, I fear that the RATS will sweep both chambers as well as the White House.

California's ballot harvesting election laws benefited Democrats because Democrats were the only ones who took advantage of them. Republicans stood by with their thumbs in their asses as Democrat foot soldiers knocked on every door of every potential Democrat voter and helped them fill out their absentee ballots.

Republicans need to get up to speed on this stuff.

Pelosi and all her Democrat suck-ups have completely abandoned any pretense at governing.

The very last thing Democraps want is to do the right thing for the American people.

Nanzi’s cockamamie activities illustrate they are plotting and colluding to sow confusion among the electorate.

They believe that’s the only thing that will put them back in total power over us.

Forget reasoning, compromise, negotiating......that aint in the Dems bag of tricks.

REMEMBER THIS The Democraps are an invading army waging war on a peaceful people........
the young, able-bodied males streaming across the border are the Dems' foot-soldiers.

I guess Pelosi thought up this atrocity while guzzling on the Mile High Congressional Booze-a-Thon.

The Pelosi Plot: House Resolution 1 — Enforce Federal Control Over State Elections
citizenfreepress.com/ ^ | 1/15/19 | J. Christian Adams /FR Posted by a little elbow grease

If you thought the midterm elections had problems, wait until you learn about Nancy Pelosi’s plan to terminate state control over American elections. Democrats in Congress have announced their top legislative priority, and it isn’t health care, immigration, or taxes. Instead, they want to centralize power over elections in Washington, D.C. H.R. 1 is number one on the legislative agenda because it is the number one priority of House Democrats, leftist groups, deep-pocketed dark money, and those who use election process rules to help win elections — or at least to cause chaos.

The bill is a 571-page dreamscape of wild wishes and federal mandates on states.H.R. 1 has 218 cosponsors. It forces states to implement mandatory voter registration. If someone is on a government list — such as receiving welfare benefits or rental subsidies — then they would be automatically registered to vote. Few states have enacted these systems because Americans still view civic participation as a voluntary choice. Moreover, aggregated government lists always contain duplicates and errors that states, even without mandatory voter registration, frequently fail to catch and fix.

H.R. 1 also mandates that states allow all felons to vote. Currently, states have the power under the Constitution to set the terms of eligibility in each state. Some states, like Maine, have decided that voting machines should be rolled into the prisons. Other states, like Nevada, have chosen to make a felony a disenfranchising event. H.R. 1 also undermines the First Amendment by exerting government control over political speech and undoing the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision.

VOTE HERE—What should be done about the ongoing federal government shutdown?
- I think our President should stand firm!
- Speaker Pelosi is right - a wall is immoral!

Pres Trump can easily settle this———just announce he is ceasing all shipments of botox until the wall is built.

Ca was the prototype in 18. They have every intention of stealing 20 and since it will be close and the GOP did nothing about it I am afraid they are going to be successful.

Force to vote, forced to have healthcare, forced to give up your firearms, etc. The theme here is clear.

San Francisco Shit Map.

This is what the country will look like in the future. Many Democratically controlled cities already have this problem.

This is why the Senate needs to counter with a GOP version.

- US Citizens only voting in federal elections
- Separate voting rolls for federal election
- Government ID to register to vote (be added to the roll)
- Registration cut off 30 days prior to an election
- Matching government ID to receive a ballot
- Purge the voting rolls of ALL voters first business day after the inauguration.

The communists Democrats led by Pelosi will infest all of America and the foolish Republicans just sit there with their thumbs up their butts. Communists will win the Senate and House in 2020. Trump may not win the Presidency and America will go into a black hole and may never pull out. Like Rome, shi! happens. Sad, but might happen.
