(Tea Party PAC) – There are a lot of threats to our liberty in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and the radical left in this country is making sure that they do not miss a single opportunity to try and rig things in their favor. After all, the only principle these folks seem to live by is not allowing a crisis situation to go to waste, utilizing every single disaster that comes about as a means of passing huge pieces of their agenda.
And what is the end goal of this agenda? The complete transformation of our nation into a socialist hellhole.
Well, if they thought they were going to do any of this without a fight, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, along with former Rep. Darrell Issa are making it clear they are sorely mistaken. The pair have joined forces to sue California Gov. Gavin Newsom over his May 8 executive order that allows voters to cast their ballots via mail, whether formally requested to or not.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
Newsom’s order cites the threat of coronavirus: because “it is unknown to what degree COVID-19 will pose a threat to public health in November,” mail-in ballots must be sent to everyone — but in-person voting must also be provided.
Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on behalf of Issa, who is running for Congress again in the 50th district (as opposed to his former district, the 49th, which has become more liberal). Three voters — one Democrat, one Republican and one independent — are also named plaintiffs in the suit, which was filed in federal court in Sacramento. The defendants include both Newsom and Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who is responsible for administering elections in the state.
The lawsuit lays out a simple case: the U.S. Constitution provides explicitly that the state legislatures control the manner of electing members of Congress, as well as members of the Electoral College (who elect the president).
The filing states:
The United States Constitution sets forth the authority to regulate federal elections. With respect to congressional elections, the Constitution provides:
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.
U.S. CONST. art. I, § 4 (“Elections Clause”).
16. With respect to the appointment of presidential electors, the Constitution provides:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
U.S. CONST. art. II, § 1 (“Electors Clause”).
17. Neither Defendant is a “Legislature” as required under the Elections Clause or Electors Clause.
The main reason we should be up in arms over this whole vote-by-mail thing is because it would be oh so easy to rig an election this way and cancel out the voices of thousands if not millions of voters. Anything that has this high of a probability of destroying the integrity of our voting system should not be something we experiment with.
Folks, this is a super important election. Maybe the most important in several decades. Radical leftists have gone on the offensive against the current administration in ways that are unprecedented. Trump has proven to be a threat to the progressive plot against this country. If we don’t take action to stop the left now, they could potentially take over the White House and further install more bits and pieces of the framework that would transform this nation into a socialist country.
We cannot allow that to happen.
Moreover, the lawsuit argues, California’s Voter’s Choice Act of 2016 provides that county governments control the decision about whether to participate in an all-mail system of voting. And while the governor has emergency powers to override statutes, the governor is required to end the state of emergency as soon as possible. There is a risk of legal challenges after the election, hurting voters and candidates — especially in congressional districts that include more than one county, where some votes might have been cast legally and others under the new, allegedly unlawful system.
In a statement, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said: “California law prohibits blindly mailing out ballots to every registered voter in the state. This scheme raises the risk of Election Day chaos as well as voter fraud.”
If you love this country, if you believe that it is critical that the voices of every single American citizen be heard in choosing the leadership and future direction of our nation, then we must oppose any attempt by the left to undermine the integrity of the election system.
That means saying no to vote by mail.
Here’s to hoping brave Americans rise up and let the left know we will not stand for this kind of scheme.
