This week, the U.S. House held a hearing with one-day notice on the "John Lewis Voting Rights Act," or JL Act. The Democrats' star witness pushing "preclearance" was the American Civil Liberties Union.
We have warned about the JL Act and preclearance. It gives Joe Biden's Department of Justice unprecedented power to impose worse election fraud than H.R. 1 (S 1/ S 2093). And this power will include a veto over many state laws—including laws restricting abortion or even annexation.
Right now, both Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have publicly stated that they support this next proposed version. In addition, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, refuses to say if she supports it or not.
This will include a massive increase in spending to accommodate this level of oversight. Democrats will then try to append this bill to the budget reconciliation process, which needs just 51 votes. They might have the votes to do it unless we raise a hue and cry on Capitol Hill to demand they stop this bill now. Send your urgent fax to the House and Senate to stop this bill in its tracks.
Manchin's new version is called "preclearance," which gives the DOJ total control over any "changes" to all elections. It comes from the failed JL Act.
Preclearance has been sparingly used to remedy past voting rights violations. Two brave whistleblowers who now work for Public Interest Legal Foundation exposed the levels of corruption they saw under preclearance. Maureen Riordan said, "Every change that you could possibly imagine has to be submitted" to the DOJ.
This includes minutiae, said expert Russ Nobile. The DOJ must approve the number and location of polling machines, who will be hired, how the registrar's offices will administrate the election and even voter qualifications.
"To show you the scope of the power," a second whistleblower, J. Christian Adams, explained that while working at the DOJ, he "would review résumés for Spanish translators for Texas school districts ... because that was considered a 'change'" in the DOJ's eyes.
Even town "annexations must be precleared because they add voters to the election pool," Adams said. "So if you are going to annex a part into a town, you have to have the federal government [DOJ] approve it." The DOJ actually "objected to an annexation of [one property] because it was adding two white voters."
This is a radical, runaway federal government. It will give complete control over our elections to the DOJ if we let Manchin's version pass. The Senate needs to hear from you immediately to educate them on the dangers of this legislation and demand that this version be blocked.
"This bill gives complete control to bureaucrats in the civil rights division." Riordan said. "After spending 20 years working with these people [at the DOJ], I can tell you that they have a complete symbiotic relationship with every left-wing advocacy group that is in the United States. And they work hand in hand with these groups and really almost have no autonomy without those groups."
She said the DOJ was working closely with the Southern Poverty Law Center, the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP and even La Raza. Her boss would tell her that one of these groups had an interest in a case, and she was to send them the whole file even though they never officially requested it. Riordan also testified yesterday before the House Judiciary Committee.
The La Raza organization believes "once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, enter to claim a majority ... the current borders of the United States will simply be extinguished. ... The final plan for the La Raza movement includes the ethnic cleansing of Americans of European, African, and Asian descent out of 'Aztlan,'" across eight states, including California, Texas and even up to parts of Washington state, according to Human Events.
And Manchin's version of the JL Act would give groups like La Raza control of our elections through the DOJ!
Even if you have faxed before, send another flight now. We must keep continuous pressure against these election fraud bills. Members of the House and Senate must know that We the American people will not allow America to go up in flames.
This idea of preclearance can affect so much more than our elections. More than two years ago, Kamala Harris suggested using preclearance to control every state that restricts abortion.
She wants to hold hostage every state, permanently block all future abortion restrictions and force states to reverse abortion restrictions. Politico reported that she wants "states that have demonstrated a pattern of abridging abortion rights to seek preclearance from the Justice Department before enacting any new laws affecting access to abortion."
This idea of preclearance moves us from a nation of laws into a country where laws are routinely destroyed by unelected individuals who are under the thumbs of radical, genocidal terrorists. And that is not an exaggeration. We cannot sit back and allow our government to destroy our entire system of government.
