HR 1 Designed To Thwart Election Security - Not “for the People”

A bill that will essentially destroy our Republic and move towards federalizing elections, the so-called “For the People Act” of 2021 (H.R. 1) passed the House of Representatives on March 3, 2021. The Senate version of the bill, which has been designated S. 1 and tracks closely to the House's language, was introduced on March 17, 2021 and is now in committee there 

This bill is designed to help Democrats win every election going forward. It also has elements that will close down political speech that doesn’t conform to their narrative. It is to quote others “the most dangerous piece of legislation ever presented.” It is designed to  dilute  your legitimate vote and facilitate fraudulent registration, ballot harvesting and illegitimate voting.   Democrats have framed H.R.1 and S.1 as key voting rights legislation aimed at increasing access to the polls and curbing corruption.   Simply not true.  

Among other things the bill:

  • Would require states to offer same day registration (SDR) for federal elections - would make it more difficult to verify legitimacy of voter
  • Establish federal criminal penalties for deceiving or intimidating voters - problem is how this could be interpreted or used 
  • Would allow and facilitate sixteen-year olds registering to vote for election when they reach 18 - Obviously designed to increase numbers registering as Democrats based on liberal values children are being indoctrinated with. 
  • Would set up small donor matching provides candidates with a “match” of public funding for eligible private donation, for example, a private donation of $100 to a candidate participating in a 6-1 matching system would attract $600 in matching public funds, for a total contribution of $700.  - Another way to get “free” dollars for Dems.  
  • Would allow for a national system automatic registration
  • Would replace Voter ID rules with a Federal law that allow registration with a sworn statement
  • Would introduce personal ID information including addresses for any kind of political advertising including memes from individuals exporting people to attacks and discouraging personal commentary 

Write your Senator now to stop this legislation. 

Asian American Hate-Crime False Flag - A Democrat Divide and Conquer Tactic

The latest decisive rhetoric coming from the Biden administration and the Democrats  involves Asian Americans. A recent horrendous attack on a Korean-American run spa in Atlanta, which was not according to police a hate-based crime, spurred Democrat protestors and Biden himself to cry “xenophobic” and express fake anger against Asian hate crimes unrelated to the incident. Crowds of people waving American flags and carrying posters that read "We are not the virus" and "Stop Asian Hate" stood in front of the golden-domed Georgia State Capitol building the weekend after this crime totally unrelated to Asian hate-crime.  

Why the interest in this supposed xenophobia.  Simply this - building the constituency of support for the Biden agenda and increasing voter base. Since 2000, the Asian American population has grown 87%,  exceeding 22 million people.  In that same period, the number of Asian Americans eligible to vote has  more than doubled, making it the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the electorate.   The Democrats see this group as a prime target for their “saving” that they can move away from Republican party.  Using divisive tactics like this is their divide-and-conquer way of increasing and sustaining power. 

Interesting to note that while the left tries to blame white supremacists  for crime against Asian Americans, the fact is  according to scientific studies, hate crimes against Asian Americans are more likely to be committed by non-white offenders. Moreover offenses are committed because of “ boredom, to have fun, and to feel strong” and are typically minor crimes.  Findings also indicate that it is jealousy of Asian Americans’ high levels of educational achievement, and their success in the workplace that may be  leading to feelings of resentment from other racial/ethnic groups.  

While the stigma of the Covid virus coming from China may have caused an increase in verbal abuse and minor crimes towards Asian Americans by those jealous of this group, this is not and will not in the future be the main source of any hate issues towards Asian Americans and is a false flag which avoids addressing the real problem.   The evidence shows that the increase in these types of incidents is not related to white supremacy issues.  In New York City for instance, where anti-Asian hate crime did significantly increase in 2020 over the year before, only two of the 20 people arrested last year in connection with these attacks were white, according to New York Police Department in data analyzed by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. Eleven were African Americans, six were white Hispanics and one was a Black Hispanic.

Republicans cannot allow false and divisive narratives to stand. While we should stand against any form of hate-crime, we need to counter false allegations about them. We also have to make certain we are addressing the real concerns of Asian Americans and make certain that they know we are.  Their concerns are similar to those of other Americans in the middle class -  ability to provide for their families, to obtain a good education for their children, to have reasonable cost access to healthcare, and to be assured that the freedoms that they or their forefathers came here for will be protected.  

We are Failing to Teach Children Our History Well

Socialism has gained traction in  this country because of ignorance. Our young people, who did not witness firsthand what the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and its Eastern European client states were like,  have not been taught about it accurately.  Most don’t understand that socialism means giving power to a central government which in the many examples throughout history used that power to destroy liberty. They have been led to believe by left wing educators and politicians that capitalism is pure evil and that socialism leads to a utopia with free college and healthcare for all.  

Millennials, born between 1981 and 1996, a Pew Research study found have on the whole a very poor knowledge of history.    Moreover,  instead of learning that America has been the greatest force for freedom in the history of the planet that has enabled unparalleled wealth for its citizens, our young people have been taught a progressive propaganda imbuing guilt over America's shortcomings.  They have been given textbooks that focus on the failings of our founding and road to prosperity placing emphasis on the bad treatment of  indigenous people, the condoning of slavery and  imperialism. Slanted and disputed by highly respected historians, a “1619 Project” document is being widely distributed to be used as a part of the curriculum across the country.  

Socialism can take root only where there is ignorance of its failures and atrocities in the past. It can flourish when it is falsely glorified and when a nation’s democratic history is undermined by exaggerations of its missteps instead of a truthful teaching of its successes.  Learning accurate history is essential for a free society.  We are failing to ascertain that are children are  being taught about the greatness of our county and how it has provided them with more freedom and opportunity than any other people have experienced. 

America’s monopolistic, bureaucratic, over-regulated system of public schools dominated by powerful teacher’s unions that benefit by supporting a powerful centralized government has provided the infrastructure for introducing socialistic principals into our schools at a very early age.  Accurate history that reflects positively on the American experience is being overrun with history taught from a biased leftist perspective.  

Parents and grandparents need to be involved in their children’s education. Question as to what they are thinking and why.  It might surprise you and enable you to address issues in their educational experience early on.  Look at textbooks and discuss classroom learning.  There is a Bill HB 241  now in the Florida House of Representatives that is important to supporting parent’s rights in access to information about their children’s education.  Support it.  Write Michael Grant, your Representative and tell him so.  

Free Speech Under Attack

We saw it during 2020 when the then President of the United States of America had his Twitter account removed - a major tool that he used to communicate with millions of Americans.  It was not the only communication block happening.  Nationally, Republicans were assaulted by the Facebook police.  We, as an example,  run a Facebook page for the Charlotte County Republican Party.  Prior to the election cycle, we would get hundreds of views and "likes" on our posts, somewhere around a month prior to the election both the views of our posts and "likes" mysteriously sunk like lead, going to meager amounts of views and paltry like numbers.  Not because the quality or pertinence of our page had deteriorated, another page we run that somehow the Facebook police missed was getting hundreds of views and likes for the same type of posts.  

Another page we administered for Trump, in particular, was being carefully patrolled.  "False" and "misleading" labels were placed on many posts,  administrators were forced into reviewing many posts before they could be posted, and many were just blocked.  

This was simply put election interference.  And it was an assault on free speech.

But there are other sinister ways in which free speech is being blocked and it is just as if not more dangerous.  

  • A high school teacher telling a politically conservative student that his writing is not in keeping with the current discourse because he expressed a right-leaning opinion 
  • A leftist professor banning use of words like "male" "female" "illegal alien" in the classroom saying these words perpetuate "white heterosexual privilege"
  • The left-wing media dominating the airways and the print media including our local paper in a predominant Republican county.
  • Democrat congressmen try to pressure TV  carriers to cancel Fox News OAN and News Max for spreading false news about January 6 break-in (notice I did not use the loaded and false word “insurrection”
  • Banning Dr. Seuss books rather than providing context for the time in which they were written 
And these are just illustrations.  We can't let up.  We can’t let these socialists take away our freedoms.  We must do all we can to have our conservative voices heard.  Write letters-to-the-editor.  If you are an advertiser speak up and insist on a more balanced viewpoint in your local news.  Don't stop using tools like Facebook -- we need to be on as many platforms as possible. Use others as well.  Join efforts or donate to efforts that support free speech. Support legislative efforts that are designed to protect freedom of speech.   There have been wins.  Lawsuits have been won. Never give up.
