Democrats: "2022 Election is Rigged Months in Advance"

For more than a year, the Democrat Party and its operatives--- with the assistance of the press-- has been taking out every conservative voice that uttered a word about the 2020 election being rigged. 

Trump has been banned for life by some social media platforms, companies, including OAN, has been or are being destroyed, individuals have been mocked and shunned for even suggesting that there was any wrongdoing in the 2020 election. 

Now Democrat politicians are claiming that "Republicans will prevent fair midterm elections in November."

When politics trumps principles.

Be informed, not misled.

Whipping up fear. 

The Daily Caller is reporting:

With Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona refusing to eliminate the filibuster and pass a pair of election reform bills, Democratic politicians are claiming that Republicans will prevent fair midterm elections in November.

The two bills, the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, would effectively nationalize elections by preventing states and locales from setting limits on absentee ballots, prohibiting ballot harvesting, and changing polling locations without federal approval, among other changes. Democrats claim that these changes are necessary to prevent local Republicans from engaging in voter suppression and throwing out validly cast ballots.

The president said in Atlanta a few days ago, "History has never been kind to those who've sided with voter suppression over voter's rights" casting opponents of the bills as the "heirs of segregationists" and laws requiring voter ID and banning line-warming as "Jim Crow 2.0"

He also claimed that those who support the stricter ID standards "plan to subvert the [2022] election."

During her MLK speech, VP Harris claimed that opponents of the legislation wish "to interfere with our elections, to get the outcomes they want and to discredit those they do not."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told CBS's "Mornings" yesterday that GOP-led state legislatures across the United States are trying to prevent "black people, brown people, college students, and people who live on tribal reservations" from voting.

She said: 

“Understand it this way — voting is foundational,” she continued. “That is the whole premise of our democracy. And before we get to the procedural part, keep this in mind: that state legislatures all across the country controlled by Republicans are doing everything they can to keep people from voting. Who are they trying to keep from voting? Black people, brown people, college students, people who live on tribal reservations, trying to keep those folks from voting because they might vote Democratic. Every single senator who is a Republican in the United States Senate has said they’re not going to do anything. They’re letting the states do whatever they want.”

Yesterday Sen. Chuck Schumer issued a stern warning to Republicans and Democrats that "We are going to vote. We are all going to go on the record."

He said his legislation will force Republicans to "choose which side they stand on: Protecting democracy or offering their implicit endorsement of Donald Trump's big lie."

There was once a time when that threat may have carried some weight, but this is not that time. 

But I'm certain he will go ahead with the vote, and if no one changes their mind, Biden's signature legislation to fix our elections will fail.

How broken is our election system?

Who's right? The Republicans say there was mischief in handling the ballots in the 2020 election, misuse of electronic counting, ballots cast on behalf of dead people, and thousands of non-citizens casting votes.

The Democrats, who apparently think the 2020 election was fine but the upcoming 2022 midterm election will not be fine---whole people groups will be locked out---suppressed from voting.

There was one hint of who is right in a ruling last Thursday when a Wisconsin judge ruled that ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting cannot be used in the midterm elections because "there is no statutory authority" for the practices.

He said this in his ruling:

Absentee ballot drop boxes were used widely during Wisconsin elections in 2020. The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memos to Wisconsin clerks in March and August of 2020 encouraging their use, stating that absentee ballots do not need to be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the municipal clerk but instead could be dropped into a dropbox. According to WEC, ballot drop boxes can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.

This advice was contrary to state law. Voting is a constitutional right, but state law makes clear that “voting by absentee ballot is a privilege exercised wholly outside the traditional safeguards of the polling place.” There are just two legal ways in Wisconsin to submit an absentee ballot. When voting by absentee ballot, state law says “[t]he envelope [containing the ballot] shall be mailed by the elector, or delivered in person, to the municipal clerk issuing the ballot or ballots.”

An unstaffed, unsupervised absentee ballot dropbox does not meet either of these legal options. And it raises significant concerns that elections are not being conducted legally and that Wisconsin voters will not have certainty that their votes will be counted if cast in this manner. 

"It's all good and nice, but there's no authority to do it," Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren said about the drop boxes.

Choosing sides.

In Atlanta, President Biden told America we must choose which side we are on, "The side of Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?"

Lincoln was once asked as we entered the Civil War, "Do you think God is on our side?"

He answered, "Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."

Lincoln deeply believed that. 

Earlier in his political career, he gave a speech that rocked many of his fellow politicians, including some Republicans.

We know it as his "House Divided" speech. You can read the complete text here

Mark, in his Gospel (3:25), quoted Jesus: "If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand."

Matthew, in his Gospel (12:25), also quoting Jesus gave  more detail: "And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."

Lincoln began his speech with this truth: 

"A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved---I do not expect the house to fall---but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all of one thing or all of the other." 

Mr. Lincoln then proceeded to lay out the problems and the great division in our nation, defining it as a moral, not a political divide.

In conclusion, he spoke of our founding: "Of strange, discordant, and even, hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud, and pampered enemy."

He continues: "Did we brave all then to falter now?---now---when that same enemy is wavering, dissevered, and belligerent?"

"This result is not doubtful," he said, "We shall not fail--if we stand firm, we shall not fail."

America is deeply divided---I pray the house does not fall. But it will ultimately depend on who stands firmly on God's side.

What's lost in this current battle for the soul of America, was well understood in our earlier times.

Before Lincoln, William Penn said, "Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants."

Founding Father and Governor of Virginia Patrick Henry said, "When people forget God---tyrants forge their chains."

In talking about how destructive division destroys a house or a kingdom, Jesus also said (Matt. 12:30): "He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad."

Certainly, all the issues of today must be addressed by our elected officials. And we must elect the right officials.

But more importantly, we must be certain we are on God's side. "Then we shall not fail---if we stand firm---we shall not fail."

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Faithful. Be Bold. Be Prayerful.
