Electoral Chaos, Brought to You by the Media

Posted by |

Blame for the chaos gripping America can’t be laid at the doorstep of a singular actor, but the media plays an outsized role in creating and maintaining disorder.

The same distortions deployed by the media to incite social unrest (see: ANTIFA riots) are being deployed on the administration of the 2020 election generally, and by pushing mail-in balloting specifically.

This is the second election cycle in a row the media has overtly worked to manipulate outcomes with false narratives. Famously, the 2016 election was awash in claims of foreign interference that have now largely been disproven.

SCOTX Bounces Bum Legal Arguments

Posted by |

An unmerited expansion of mail-in balloting by judicial order was dealt a blow yesterday.

The Texas Supreme Court issued an opinion (four actually) contradicting a lower court ruling expanding mail-in balloting beyond the five classes of voters to which it has long been confined.

Importantly, the court nixed two arguments deployed by liberals during the pandemic to notch policy victories they’ve been unable to accomplish via legislation.

First, and this was one abandoned by the left before the ruling, is that fear qualifies as a disability that allows a voter to receive a mail-in ballot. Heads up, fake prescriptions should be torn up and tossed.

Second, and more important moving forward, a lack of immunity is not a disability.

Hot takes from “experts” grasping for a silver lining (1 | 2 | 3) landed on county election administrators having broad authority to accept applications and not investigate the veracity of disability claims.

While it’s nice greater attention is being paid to the broken mechanics of Texas election administration, it’s exposing ignorance.

People Over 65 Shouldn’t Fear Voting in Person

Posted by |

Republican leaders have started to speak out against the operation to undermine elections in Texas.

It’s about time.

Liberal groups for the past two months have been suing to change Texas law via judicial fiat. The goal, manufacture some wins in November.

The maneuver, needed because the left has failed to win elections and enact law previously, is being peddled as public health protection during a pandemic. Still, to make their case, common sense must be suspended entirely.

For one, many elections in America and around the world have proven in-person voting to be safe. Wisconsin had between 52 and 71 individuals who voted come down with COVID19, depending on which study you consult.

This is a low number, startling low given the reasonable presumption that Democrats worked hard to prove their pre-election thesis that “forcing” an in-person election would lead to widespread illness and death.

Broken Record; Leftwing Litigation Ploy

Posted by |

Continuing a well-established theme, Democrats filed another lawsuit this week seeking to undermine elections in Texas.

Further frivolous actions were anticipated and teased after a ballot-by-mail age discrimination suit was filed last week.

Let’s watch a broken record spin till November.

Suit Designed by Pelosi

The latest legal gambit for universal mail-in balloting, brought by the Redistricting Foundation, would legalize vote harvesting (see California), pave a path to forged signatures, and blow up submission and counting deadlines.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been unsuccessful at passing laws to accomplish all of the above, so have Texas lawmakers of the most progressive strain. The fact that these bad ideas have failed to become law is a testament to our legislative process and the transparent nature of these and similar lawsuits.

These are bad ideas, aimed at manufacturing a result for a powerful minority, the Chinese Communist Party would approve.

Every time a lawsuit is filed, and at this point, the smart money is on more being filed, Texans need to be reminded, 2019 could have seen additional, needed safeguards enacted to ensure the sanctity of elections in our great state.

Ready for a Fight in Dallas County?

Posted by |

Yesterday, Attorney General Ken Paxton issued an advisory to election administrators and County Judges that they could face prosecution if they encourage voters who are not disabled to apply for disability mail-in ballots.

Now, Democrat John Wiley Price, a Dallas County Commissioner, has authored a resolution to do just that. A vote on the measure will take place Tuesday.

Vote harvesters in Dallas County not already working to swell the rolls with voters ineligible to vote by mail will undoubtedly kick into high gear should the resolution pass. Such activity welcomes fraud, abuse and stress on an already stressed election department.

The Wiley Price approach, similar to all Democrat efforts to upend the 2020 election, is built on not letting a crisis go to waste, and a flawed partisan interpretation of election law.
