It’s hard to believe that an actual massive audit of ALL ballots cast in Maricopa County in Arizona last November 3rd is underway. But it’s easy to believe that the Democrat Party, both in the state and nationally, is beside themselves with fear and hatred for the Arizona courts allowing this audit to happen.
Keeping that in mind, here’s a simple question for ALL Democrats and ALL Americans, for that matter: If there was NO cheating in Maricopa County last November 3rd, why are Democrats so worried about an audit’s results?
I think the answer is obvious: “where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” And the only anticipated fire that would make sense for those who watched the actual election process play out is one of exposure — exposure of vote fraud. That’s not declaring that there WAS Arizona voter fraud. It declares that Democrats are concerned about an audit that will expose any fraud that did occur.
And Democrats in Arizona and Washington want that to remain hidden? Why would proving that be such a big deal to Democrat Party leaders?
That’s a great question! Let’s see if we can answer it.
What’s on the Table For AZ’s Audit?
Barack Obama liked to remind us that “elections have consequences.”
Boy, do they! For conservatives like me, the months since Democrats took over the White House and the Senate have been a tsunami of consequences. How do you think I like it when Joe Biden’s handlers aim 60 executive orders at the tip of his pen to effectuate a fundamental transformation of this country? Or when the Democrat-controlled Congress tries to push through statehood for the District of Columbia to guarantee their continued control of the Senate? Or when the southern border is turned into a 2,000-mile illegal-immigrant processing center?
Unfortunately, the political talking point that “elections have consequences” is not recognized as a legitimate principle when Republicans defeat Democrats. That was obvious when Donald Trump won the 2016 election and spent the next four years being vilified as a Russian puppet, a racist, and a danger to the republic. You see, Democrats consider elections to be their most legitimate means of seizing power, but not necessarily the most effective. For them, politics is the continuation of war by other means, and they have been waging war against not just Republicans but against the Constitution for at least the last 50 years.
We could examine the truth of that statement in multiple arenas, including the attempt to repeal or neuter the Second Amendment, the assault on equal rights to replace equality with the Orwellian concept of equity, and of course, the aforementioned unconstitutional push to convert D.C. into a state.
But let’s stick with elections because any political party that controls elections ultimately controls everything else. Nancy Pelosi obviously knows that she made the “For the People Act” her No. 1 priority in the 117th Congress. The Constitution gives authority over federal elections to the individual states that make up the Union. Still, Pelosi’s H.R. 1 would strip that authority from the states and give it to Congress. One provision, in particular, would outlaw the use of voter ID to verify that anyone who casts a vote is legally entitled to do so. Again, as crazy as it sounds, this is the No. 1 Democratic priority.
Let’s say it one more time till it sinks in: Democrats want to ban states from using the most obvious and fair method to ensure that all votes in an election are legal votes — checking voter ID. No wonder millions of Republicans have a sneaking suspicion that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump. What do the Democrats have to hide?
But it’s not just the 2020 election that makes conservatives fear that they are being dealt a hand of three-card monte. Consider what is happening in the state of Montana. Gov. Greg Gianforte just signed two election integrity bills into law. Almost immediately, the state was hit with a lawsuit by the Democratic Party to overturn the people’s will.
Wait a minute? I thought elections have consequences! But you forgot the asterisk that indicates “unless Republicans win.” This is truly infuriating to conservatives. Montana has had a solidly Republican legislature for quite a few years. Still, Montana citizens also elected Democrat governors who liked to wield their veto pens to prevent conservative reforms from being instituted. When Rep. Gianforte left Congress to become governor, it promised a whole new world for Montana Republicans.
Montana is one state that has aggressively stepped out to support controversial Constitutional matters — in some cases as much or more than the other Red States. To ensure the right to self-defense, the state has removed many restrictions on the ability of people to carry guns. Montana was also one of the first states to pass liability protection for businesses reopened despite COVID fears. And in a fit of common sense, the Legislature has banned sanctuary cities in the state: Illegal aliens will no longer be a protected class in certain left-leaning municipalities.
All of those new laws surely will be challenged in court, as they are in other states, but Democrats seem particularly averse to election integrity. They lost no time in bringing suit against two election laws that Gov. Gianforte signed last week. Under House Bill 176, voter registration will no longer be permitted on Election Day but will instead end no later than noon on the day before an election. Senate Bill 169, meanwhile, established requirements for would-be voters to provide some ID both when registering to vote and when actually casting a vote. In a pre-woke world, this would have qualified as bipartisan common sense since its purpose is to prevent cheating. Still, nowadays, we are told that imposing common-sense restrictions on voting is racism and that cheating is just the price we have to pay for being an inclusive society.
Democrat super-lawyer Marc Elias, the guy whom Hillary Clinton hired to engineer the Russia hoax, wasted no time trying to ensure that Montana elections remain a haven for fraud and abuse. His lawsuit claims that the state’s new laws “represent the latest round of legislative shadowboxing aimed at imaginary threats to election integrity, and false accusations of election fraud orchestrated by those seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, now weaponized by the Legislature to impede access to the franchise.”
In short, he claims that the two laws will prevent people from voting. In particular, he says that the laws place an unconstitutional burden on the right to vote for students, Native Americans, the elderly, those with disabilities, and others.
Of course, that is nonsense. The burden placed on those groups is the same as the burden placed on all Montanans and citizens in numerous other states. If you want to vote, prove that you are a resident! That’s racist? It’s not some hideous “cruel and unusual” ordeal that targets any one group. Basically, the voter ID law says you need to produce photo identification or provide the last four digits of your Social Security number or show some document like a utility bill that includes your name and address. Wow! I’m not sure I would even want to participate in a democracy where voters aren’t bright enough to prove they are real people.
As for the new law ending same-day voter registration, that is a long-overdue change. Montana county election officials were increasingly overwhelmed with late voters showing up on Election Day in November 2020 to register at the last minute and sucking up resources that should have been directed toward protecting the integrity of the election itself. And don’t tell me that ending voter registration a day early represents any burden. It’s called a deadline. Get used to it.
Bottom line: Both Montana laws are intended to lessen the opportunity for cheating on Election Day. Why, therefore, is the Democratic Party so intent on eliminating these laws? Georgia’s new voter reform law that set every Democrat on fire does NOTHING except make voting easier, voting times, and numbers of days increased. Every county/voting precinct has a dropbox. That’s considered “voting suppression? Really?
For that matter, why don’t Democrats want a serious, impartial investigation of voting irregularities in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada? If cheating took place, shouldn’t we try to find out about it? Apparently not, because Democrat Party attorneys filed lawsuit after lawsuit to prevent anyone from auditing or reviewing the election results from Nov. 3rd.
Taken together, the message of all these lawsuits is clear: Elections have consequences, but cheating doesn’t. And cheating is immaterial — UNLESS you get caught. If you’re the party that controls the “election cops” and what they can do and are allowed to do in investigations of alleged voter fraud, there will NEVER be proven voter fraud!
Democrats certainly know that. In fact, that’s the reason why they push so diligently against the light of truth being shined on election processes in these “marginal” states.
Facts WILL out; truth WILL prevail. America will always be a beacon of truth and fairness — especially regarding our election processes. Dems will have to accept that they will NOT bully Americans into benignly giving away our representative republic to a bunch of sycophants who are driven by their lust for totalitarian power!
To quote one famous redneck: “It ain’t happening!”
