Kamala Says That There Shouldn’t Be Voter ID Laws Because “Rural” Americans Can’t Make Photocopies of Their IDs…No…Really!

FoxNews.com reports that

Vice President Kamala Harris was criticized Saturday for arguing against voter ID laws because rural Americans couldn’t get photocopies of their ID’s.

“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that [compromise on voter ID laws] could mean,” Harris said in her interview with BET News. “Because in some people’s mind, that means you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove who you are. Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t – there’s no Kinkos, there’s no OfficeMax near them.”

“Of course people have to prove who they are,” Harris continued, but “not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are.”

The vice president’s comments come in the midst of a nationwide battle over voter ID laws, with states like Georgia and Texas taking center stage. Many progressives argue that voter ID laws are “racist,” while Republicans suggest the laws are necessary to prevent voter fraud.

Rural Americans took issue with the vice president’s comments, suggesting she is out of touch with the nation.

“We built this country. We can manage to photocopy our ID’s,” tweeted former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright.

Others questioned Harris’ comments that people had to prove who they were, but “not in ways that make it impossible to prove who they are.”

“No one is buying this ridiculous argument against Voter ID,” tweeted veteran and Pennsylvania Senate candidate Sean Parnell. “The vast majority of Americans support it. Let’s get it done.”

Last month, President Biden announced that he tapped Harris to lead the White House’s fight to expand access to the ballot box, an issue the vice president told BET News she specifically asked to lead. In the same interview, though, Harris noted that she may have not said “‘no’ enough” to the multiple assignments from Biden, but that she is used to “multitasking”

Polling data from the Associated Press shows that most Americans support laws requiring photo identification to access the ballot box, with a majority of both Republicans and Democrats backing the idea. Overall, 72% of American adults support requiring photo identification to vote.

Harris’ comments came during the BET special titled “State of Our Union: Vice President Kamala Harris” that aired on Friday. The interview also touched on coronavirus vaccine rates and police reform.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Dear Vice-President Harris…or may I just call you “Heels Up”?

First off, allow me to introduce myself.

I am one of those average Americans, living in the Northwest corner of the State of Mississippi, whom you have, in your arrogance, mistakenly labeled as “Rural” simply because we do not live in the densely crowded metropolitan areas of either coast and we voted for Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.

You probably think of us as being a “rural minority”.

That’s funny. Last night, as I was writing this response to you, I took a look once again at the 2016 Electoral Map and was once again struck by the fact that 80% of the continental land mass known as the contiguous United States was 80% red and just 20% blue.

Doesn’t the word “minority” mean “a smaller number of”?

Your “Fellow Travelers” also claim that those of us residing in the area which you Coastal Liberals tend to refer to as “Flyover Country” but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland” as “the core threat to our democracy”.

Seriously?

Forgive my bluntness, but Civics Class must have been one of those which you skipped in order to hang out with the “cool kids”.

America is not a “democracy”. Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, created this Blessed Land as a Constitutional Republic in order to provide fair and equal representation to all areas of the country, whether they be densely populated “urban” areas or sparsely populated “rural” areas.

No American’s vote is more important than somebody else’s.

When I voted down here, outside Memphis, Tennessee, in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State during the rigged Presidential Election of 2020, it was supposed to count as your vote.

The Founders created and put in place the Electoral College in order to prevent just what you and the rest of your Fellow Travelers in the Far Left Democratic Party are suddenly crying for: a nation where its leaders are selected by mob rule in which special interest groups of a minority political philosophy join together to form a voting bloc in order to “radically change” the course of a Sovereign Nation.

In the case of Modern America Liberals, such as yourself, this would allow you and your Fellow Travelers to change our Constitutional Republic into a “Democratic” Socialist Nation, a form of government based on Marxist Theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried.

If that is the sort of country you which to live in…move to Venezuela.

I am certain that they could use your “help”.

By the way, addressing your “concern” that voters in “rural areas have no way of making copies of their IDs…

During the COVID-19 Lockdown and subsequent Stimulus Checks, Walmarts across the Heartland sold out of printers, so children could do their schoolwork and those Americans who kept working at home could do their jobs.

Oh, and before you call me a “rascist”, you do realize that Black Americans use their IDs every day out here in the sticks, don’t you?

We “stupid” “Rural” Americans even know how to use a home printer to make copies.

In conclusion, Ms. Reid, it was  your own arrogance, yours and your Fellow Travelers’, which led to the election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.

And, once again, it will be your undoing.

As it says in Proverbs 16:18,

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Or, as you guys in your self-proclaimed “urban majority” like to say,

Payback’s a…well…you know.

Biden Says “Jim Crow Sneaking Back In” Because Trump and Republicans Want to Tighten Voting Laws

JEOEPYRP6YI6TBVLLUBBBGXLAE

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is “sneaking back in” as he emphasized voting rights at his first presidential campaign stop in South Carolina, where black voters play a key role in the South’s first presidential primary.

In criticizing Republican efforts to adopt more stringent voting rules, including identification requirements and curtailing early voting hours, Biden recalled the racial segregation laws of the past.

“You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” he said, referring to the era before the civil rights movement. “You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote? They lose.”

Biden centered much of his trip around the need to restore decency to the White House. “Your state motto is, ‘While I breathe, I hope,'” he said at the rally after continuing his full-throated denunciation of President Donald Trump. “It’s not a joke. We’re breathing, but God, we have got to have hope.”

He kept up that theme at a private evening fundraiser, telling several dozen donors that he expects a nasty race from Trump.

“This guy is going to go after me and family,” Biden said, recalling his grandchildren telling him before his announcement that they expect Trump and others to bring up family details including his son Hunter Biden’s divorce.

Biden said there “are so many nicknames I want to give this guy,” and he drew laughter when he joked that he’d “start with clown.” But he added that he doesn’t want to respond in kind.

“The only place he has any confidence is in the mud,” Biden said, because the president “doesn’t understand how to respond to issues.”

Biden said he will answer Trump “directly” in the future without name-calling. He recalled saying in 2016 that in high school he’d have “taken him behind the barn and beat the hell out of” Trump. “Guess what? I probably shouldn’t have done that,” Biden said. “The presidency is an office that requires dignity and reestablishing respect and standing.”

Biden will continue his trip Sunday by worshipping at a black church in Columbia.

Okay, let me get this straight.

The guy who once described Barack Hussein Obama as “clean and articulate” is calling President Donald J. Trump and the rest of Republicans RAAACIIIST for wanting to pass laws requiring an ID to vote and other measures designed to ensure honest, fair elections in the future?

Look at the political shenanigans which transpired during the 2018 Midterm Elections in Arizona, Georgia, and Florida, and you will understand why “Sleepy Joe” and his fellow Democrats have fought against Voter I.D. Cards so ferociously.

A Voter I.D. would spoil the 2020 Presidential Election Plans of the Democratic Party Leadership.

Remember, their Chairman is a Hispanic Political Activist.

In my state, even if you cannot drive, you can still get a state identification.

There is nothing to it and it comes in useful for all sorts of things where you need an I.D., even purchasing a cellphone and service plan.

Trump is absolutely right.

I.D.’s are a part of the overwhelming majority of Americans’ everyday lives.

The only reason to intentionally not carry one would be if you do not want to be identified because you’re breaking the law in some form or fashion…such as being in this Sovereign Nation illegally.

The right to vote in American Elections should remain as it always has been: a right enjoyed by American Citizens Only.

Allowing illegals to vote is rewarding them for not having enough respect for America to enter our country in a legal manner.

It is the wrong thing to do….just like “finding votes” after the election is.

Oh, and another thing: It was not a bunch of Republicans who attempted to beat up Black Conservative Candace Owens, the Founder of the #Blexit Movement, the other day.

It was a bunch of black-hooded punks from Antifa, the Far Left Fascists.

Since its inception, the #Blexit Movement has encouraged a lot of black Americans to #breakaway from the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, it has opened a lot of eyes to the fact that the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump several months ago and, according to them, they love the guy.

And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.

They felt empowered.

Trump is winning over a voting bloc that the Democrats have always counted on to vote for their candidate in the Presidential Election.

And, gentle readers, that is why Sleepy Joe brought up Tom Crow and is going on a “Goodwill Tour” through black communities, including making a campaign speech today in a black church.

I guess the “separation of church and state” which the Dems always whine about doesn’t apply to them.

One final thought: Do you know how you can tell that Sleepy Joe and the Democrats have already reached the stage of desperation in the 2020 Presidential Campaign?

They are already playing the Race Card.

AG Nominee Loretta Lynch Turns Out To Be Just Another “Community Organizer”

Loretta LynchWhen President Barack Hussein Obama announced his pick to succeed Eric Holder as Attorney General, the first reports profiled her as an “overqualified” Prosecutor from Brooklyn, NY.

While Ms. Lynch may or many not actually have the legal skills for the position, it is a certainty that she has the correct political ideology and racial animus to work within the Obama Administration.

Yesterday, Breitbart News reported that

Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama’s choice to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General, would likely sail through confirmation hearings under normal circumstances–i.e. even when Democrats had not gutted the filibuster rule in a cynical act of partisanship, and when the administration had not turned the nation’s top law enforcement office into such a politicized and race-obsessed office. She certainly has the right qualifications.
 
Lynch has served twice as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and has a long résumé of high-profile prosecutions. Her most recent headline case has been that of U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY), who was indicted earlier this year for a variety of charges, including hiding $1 million in business receipts from the Internal Revenue Service and hiring illegal immigrant workers, whom he paid in cash, at his restaurant.

In addition, her life and career boast strong civil rights themes. Growing up in North Carolina, Lynch’s mother worked as a farmhand; her daughter would go on to graduate from Harvard twice. Lynch also prosecuted the Abner Louima case, involving a Hatian immigrant who was beaten and sodomized with a broom handle by New York City police in 1997. The case was one of the few political crises in Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s administration.

An open Democrat, Lynch has certainly created trouble for Republicans. Yet her career shows close familiarity with the nuts and bolts of justice, from terror prosecutions to corporate law and even white-collar defense. Indeed, it is worth asking why Holder, with his highly dubious history during the Clinton administration (see, for example, the Marc Rich and Puerto Rican terrorists’ cases), was nominated ahead of someone like Lynch.

The answer, of course, is politics–and politics is again playing a role, as Lynch was certainly chosen not just for her qualifications but also to insulate the Obama administration from a tough confirmation hearing. 

Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) have already insisted that Lynch must make clear her views on Obama’s proposed “executive amnesty,” his effort to circumvent Congress and change immigration laws by executive fiat.

Yet there is so much more that Republicans might hope to ask Holder’s successor about–Operation Fast and Furious, for example, and the non-compliance of the Attorney General with Congress; the role of the Justice Department in inflaming racial tensions in the Trayvon Martin and Ferguson cases; the dropped prosecution of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation in 2008; the lingering IRS scandal; and so much more.

Obama’s gamble seems to be that Republicans will be more reluctant to grill a black, female nominee. If that seems far-fetched, consider that after the 2012 election Democrats applied the same logic to Susan Rice’s anticipated nomination as Secretary of State, calling criticism of her role in the Benghazi cover-up racist and sexist, as President Obama dared Republican critics not to pick on her but to criticize him instead. (They did).

Steven Dennis of Roll Call observes that “the [Republican] party would be blocking the first African American woman attorney general over immigration when party leaders have professed a desire to do more to appeal to African Americans, women and Hispanics.” 

So despite Lynch’s qualifications, she has been thrust into a cynical game involving race, gender and identity. It’s hardly a fresh start for the Obama administration.

Yes, there is a reason for Republicans to be leery about Ms. Lynch.

Punditpress.com reports that

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came at the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States.

“There’s still more work to do,” Ms. Lynch explained. “People tell us the Dream is not realized because dreams never are. Mandela and King knew we had to continue working, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you, that under this President and under this Attorney General, that the Department of Justice is committed to following through with those dreams.”

She continued, “50 years after the march on Washington, 50 years after the civil rights movement, we stand in this country at a time when we see people trying to take back so much of what Dr. King fought for. We stand in this country. People try and take over the State House and reverse the goals that have been made in voting in this country. 

“But I’m proud to tell you that the Department of Justice has looked at these laws and looked at what’s happening in the Deep South, and in my home state of North Carolina has brought lawsuits against those voting rights changes that seek to limit out ability to stand up and exercise our rights as citizens. And those lawsuits will continue.”

Ms. Lynch was no doubt talking about the Justice Department’s lawsuit against North Carolina to stop their voter ID laws. Eric Holder even used the same kind of language as Lynch: “Allowing limits on voting rights that disproportionately exclude minority voters would be inconsistent with our ideals as a nation,” he explained.

It is plain to see that Ms. Lynch is arguing that people in the “Deep South” have passed these laws so that minority voters would be disenfranchised.

“Disenfranchised”? How in the name of Dow Jones and all his little averages is having to prove that you’re not a dead guy at the Voting Booth, by presenting the same ID that you have to show in order to purchase a pack of cigarettes, being “disenfranchised”?

Gimme a break.

When Obama was being slobbered over by the Main Stream Media and the rest of his Democratic Sycophants as the Democrat Nominee for President, he was lauded as “The First Post-Racial President”, meaning, as a Black American (I almost said “African”), he would be able to unite the races.

And, then, Obama started to campaign. And, as he begin to talk about “radically changing” our country…a red warning light started flashing in the minds of Americans out here in the Heartland.

)So, Americans interested in the background of this “clean and articulate” (as his VP, Joe Biden, called him) Black Presidential Candidate started doing the research that the Main Stream Media refused to do.

And, we found out that the first “job” that Obama ever had was a political one.

From 1985 – 1988, Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago.  What does a Community Organizer do?  I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising.

Obama was hired by Jerry Kellman, a New Yorker who had gotten into organizing in the 1960s.  Kellman was trying to help laid-off factory workers on the far South Side of Chicago, in a nearly 100% black community.   He led a group, the Calumet Community Religious Conference, that had been created by several local Catholic churches in the industrial community.   Kellman was advised to hire a black organizer for a new spinoff from CCRC.  They called it the Developing Communities Project, designed to focus solely on the Chicago part of the area.

One of Obama’s projects while he was there, was to try to build an alliance of white and black churches and enlist them in the cause of social justice.  Obama had a problem, though.   He didn’t go to church himself.   And that, brothers and sisters, is how Obama, drawn to the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (and a political opportunity), joined Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street.

If you ask Obama’s fellow Community Organizers what his most significant accomplishments were, they’ll say two things: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects.   Those  were his biggest victories.

As I have written before, Obama ascended to the throne of the Regime during a period when our nation was experiencing a period of economic recession, by appealing to the masses by promising that if he was elected, the oceans would rise and fall, the sun would come out tomorrow (Hey, that sounds like a song. Oh…never mind.) and everybody would receive a unicorn in their backyard. (Okay. He didn’t really promise that. But, heck, he promised everything else.)

Obama’s “speechifying” sounded great to the 47%, who have relied on Uncle Sugar’s largesse for generations.

Obama has always aimed his “soaring rhetoric” toward that audience, preaching not only economic class division, but racial division, as well.

The attention which he has paid to isolated racial incidents, like the shooting of Michael Brown, blown up to national attention by the Democrat Party and their professional race-baiters, including Obama himself, diminishes the presidency.

And now, he is about to nominate for the important job of Attorney General, another “community-organizing race baiter”, seemingly fixated upon the color of one’s skin, instead of the letter of the law.

And, the Democrats still can’t figure out why they were voted out of office last Tuesday.

Until He Comes,
