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 hope that Trump will not keep her in his administration.

Parmelia,

When Trump is elected (which he will be), the likes of Lynch, will be lucky if they are not jailed.

Of course she will be one of the first to pack their bags, if they are smart they will start in November.

Thanks. I am so afraid of voter fraud - massive to elect Hillary.

COULD IT BE, that like all the other liberals Obama selected, are just like him and Hillary?  Real voter fraud pundits of the slimiest kind... just saying.

`
This IS of course a smoke screen to get federal government (read democrat operatives) into polling places to "PROTECT THE DEMOCRAT CHEATING MACHINE".
`
Don't let it happen.
`
Conservatives have to FLOOD POLLING places to counter attack the fraud by the democrat machines.`
Remembering it's not WHO VOTES
`
********** It's WHO COUNTS THE VOTES !
!

Would these be the VERY SAME FEDERAL ELECTIONS "OBSERVERS" who EJECTED GOP Poll Watchers from HUNDREDS of voting precincts in 2012 when the polls opened, forcing the GOP into Court for an injunction? And the result being that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE AFFECTED PRECINCTS REPORTING 100% FOR OVOMIT, making it the FIRST TIME IN RECORDED AMERICAN ELECTION HISTORY for that to have happened in ANY Presidential election!

Oversight...  Does that mean that they will take care of the rigged voting machines?  (Being careful that they register the votes for the 'right' party).  Watch out for Federal oversight on anything.  At least until Mr. Trump becomes President Trump.  And even HE is only one man.  He can't watch EVERYBODY!

This woman should not be in this position. She is radical.

Allow what she wants and we don't need the FEDERAL in the election.

Stay out of it.

Odummie did not win 1 state where you had to show ID to vote

Put a freaken round in it already. The Left are criminals. Look at their work worldwide, they have destroyed everything good everywhere they've been and are located to the day. Take the trash-garbage-filth out.

Interpretation: Cheat like hell, we want Hellary, any way we can, even stuffing ballot boxes!!!!!!!!!! Well do anything for Crooked Hellary!

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
