Democrats’ sweeping HR1 ‘For The People Act’ would ‘enshrine fraud,’ as leftist lawmakers seek to stifle dissent

Democrats’ sweeping HR1 ‘For The People Act’ would ‘enshrine fraud,’ as leftist lawmakers seek to stifle dissent.

Tucker Carlson (as reported by Charles Creitz):

Democrats will control the federal government for decades or more if a sweeping new proposal touted as comprehensive government reform becomes law, Tucker Carlson said on Monday.

Carlson warned of the many dangers of “H.R. 1.,” the “For The People Act,” a nearly 800-page bill sponsored by Maryland Democrat John Sarbanes of Baltimore.

“The ‘For The People Act’ is the foundation of the Democratic Party strategy to control the federal government well into your grandchildren’s middle age.” …

“The bill begins by declaring that — contrary to Article I of the United States Constitution — Congress has an “ultimate supervisory power over federal elections.”

Carlson noted that under the constitution, handling of elections is largely left to the states, but that the Democrats’ bill would essentially nationalize what he called the Californian election system.

“Under our current loss, states get to decide how much fraud they will tolerate: Florida requires you to show photo identification in order to vote. California just wants you to vote Democrat,” he said.

“If H.R. 1 passes, all 50 states will be California — the entire country will have ballot harvesting and mail-in voting.” …

Many people think the last election was stolen — Democrats react by making the next one even easier to steal:

Carlson said that Democrats are essentially taking the exact opposite message from the right-wing riot at the Capitol on January 6.

He said throngs of people turned to civil unrest because millions were convinced the 2020 election was not fair …

“According to the Democrats, the lesson of that terrible day was that we needed more of the corrupt policies that caused it in the first place. We need more mail-in voting, we need more ballot harvesting: More corruption! That will unite the country.”

No ID, more absentee voting, ballot harvesting allowed, etc.

Carlson went on to point out that a line in Sarbanes’ bill reads that a state government cannot require voters to provide “any form of identification” in seeking an absentee ballot.

“Under H.R. 1, [people] could freely go house to house and apartment to apartment collecting unknown thousands of ballots and then dump them all in a ballot dropbox. No one would have any idea if those ballots had been tampered with at any point along the way or would there be any way to prove it if they had been tampered with,” he continued. …

“A system like that is suicidal for democracy and no other free country would tolerate it.”

Carlson further pointed out that Canada and France have prohibitions on mail-in ballots, while the party in power in the U.S. seeks the opposite remedy.

The host went on to contrast the Democrats’ call for open, unaccountable voting with surprising contravening messaging from an entity he said is otherwise friendly to the left: Jeff Bezos’ Amazon.

“When it’s their power at stake Democrats have a totally different position,” he said, remarking on Amazon corporate’s criticism of mail-in type balloting for its unionization election in Alabama.

You should know this is not considered hypocrisy. They don’t mind if they are caught breaking their own rules, they are not offended by double standards. They want power, this is a power grab and that’s all it is,” he said.

He went on to point to legislation from Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla., noting that the Orlando lawmaker is proposing a bill that would, in the host’s words, “ban anyone with the wrong opinions from having a significant job in the federal government.”

The Thinking Conservative has more details.

Transparency, honesty, accountability and persuasion are out; naked power grabs and military force are in.

The era of talking appears to be coming to an end. It was good while it lasted, but it was but a brief moment of sunshine in human history.
