Attorney General Warns: Not Enough Federal Oversight of Election

Attorney General Loretta Lynch and top Justice Department political appointeesare warning that the upcoming federal election will not have enough federal oversight of state election officials. In recent remarks to the League of United Latin American Citizens, Lynch derided the threat to voting rights because the federal government no longer has the power to send hundreds of federal election observers into state polling sites to monitor state and local officials.

In 2013, the Supreme Court in Shelby County v. Holder struck down the 1965 coverage formula that put sixteen states under federal oversight. These oversight powers included the federal power to send swarms of federal observers into state polling locations to monitor state elections. Alaska, New York, and South Dakota were among the states with counties covered by the law.

The Supreme Court ruled in Shelby that the conditions in 1965 were no longer relevant to the extraordinary exercise of federal power over state elections in 2013.

But that hasn’t stopped Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other advocates from stoking paranoia by claiming the right to vote is endangered in the upcoming election without those observers. Reuters even adopted the sky-is-falling approach, presenting three-year-old news as news under the headline U.S. Curtails Federal Election Observers [!!].

Wade Henderson, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights -- a reliable source for chicken-little quotes about voting -- says the federal observers “play a critical role in protecting voting rights, especially for voters of color and others who have historically been vulnerable to rampant voting discrimination.” Because of the Supreme Court's decision in Shelby in 2013, he says, the right to vote is at risk in November without federal observers.

I'm really tired of this crap. It is beyond reasonable to expect someone to produce a valid ID in order to vote. States have gone out of there way to get people without a valid id, an ID, and had given plenty of time to do so. If you don't need an ID for voting, then you shouldn't need one for anything else. This is the most ridiculous ongoing Dem argument and the courts keep backing them up. We're HOSED! Who do you think the fraudsters are going to vote for?  

Congress needs to ID the judges supporting no ID for voting and remove them immediately from the bench... Wholesale Impeachments of Federal Judges needs to occur... or better, simply redistrict the entire federal judiciary system .. putting every judge our of office and then reappoint only pure Constitutionalist... Judges whose judicial temperament is restrained by the Constitution. 

Once, the activist judges have been removed by redistricting and with new appointments. Congress should establish permanent sitting Judicial Review Committees in each House to review ALL federal judges regularly... and when a Judge strays into activism... legislating from the bench.. Immediately, on the first offense, impeach them... remove them from their seat on the court.

Congress needs to assert their right to oversight and supremacy over the Federal Courts... Congress should be the only agency allowed to make law and too define the Constitution.  The courts are merely administrators of the law and must not be permitted to redefine the laws or the Constitution.

Congress needs to start doing it job as outlined in the constition

That redistricting idea seems historically tried before, with results. I guess activist judges are like weeds. Every once in a while you have to go looking to pull them, even in the best-kept lawns.

Valid ID should be required for all voters in the US Elections. Leo lynchpin is as crooked and corrupt as her leader oblamea and as crooked as the clintonians. ID required to vote, NO EXCEPTIONS! Also we need to come down on the illegal soros, aka sore ass's electronic voting, that is located in Spain!  This is bullshiit also!

I spent all day yesterday starting with OUR governor, all down the ranks, and to our sen. and Congress. This is taking OUR rights away.  You cannot go to your bank and cash a check

or open a cking account with out proving who you are.

THEY NEED TO reject the FED Court from forcing this on WE THE PEOPLE. So,

today, our GOVERNOR Abbott is out speaking against this. JUST SAY No, we are

not going to take this BS anymore!   ENOUGH.

TRANSLATION:   The election will be fixed by the obama administration.

Correction:  The election has been fixed by the obama administration.

The illegal alien fk should be thrown in prison!

So...a ex- president walks into a plane and sits next to the attorney general. The ex- president says to the attorney general. "How's the grand kids". The attorney general says "they're doing great, all good" and the ex- president says "if you want to keep it that way, don't indict my wife" get it? No that wasn't a joke.

That's how D.C. apparently works.  We have seen Trey "Pitbull" Gowdy fold up like toilet paper a couple of times, too.

So, I am not the only one who noticed how Trey Gowdy suddenly transformed from a Pit Bull to a Kitten.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
