Apparently, the Biden administration has finally gotten the hint that the multi-trillion dollar Build Back Better (BBB) agenda is presently off the table, in large part due to utterly insatiable Democrat greed for tax revenues.
In light of the failed efforts to pass the unnecessary spending bill, Democrats are now on to a new goal, which does not involve spending, but it absolutely involves democracy: voting.
That’s right: Apparently, the Democrats, who have enjoyed a clear advantage from mail-in voting, apparently believe that tackling “voter integrity” should be their next pet cause.
Not to mention another cause that they can pitifully link to Trump, who appears even better and better with each passing day of the Biden administration.
How couldn’t he, given the degree of bloviation presently spewing from the swamp?
Just consider the nonsense from Cedric Richmond, who serves as the White House Director of the Office of Public Engagement, who actually has the audacity to claim that the Biden administration is soaring towards “the belly of the beast” in reference to Republicans.
“We are doubling down, kicking it into another gear, we are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression, voter subversion and obstruction.” [Source: Breitbart]
Looks like Mr. Richmond is competing with Mr. Buttigieg in terms of melodrama, notably when the ineffectual Transportation Secretary claimed that Biden guided the nation out of the “terrifying teeth” of a recession (did he?).
And precisely why does Mr. Richmond think that the Biden administration needs to target the so-called “belly of the beast?”
Well, apparently, Republican legislatures are doing just terrible things, like daring to request photo identification when someone votes, as if doing so is just one of the gravest injustices ever.
According to Mr. Richmond, such measures apparently constitute “voter suppression.”
“These bills being passed in all of these Republican legislatures to restrict the right to vote, to put obstacles in the way of the right to vote to subvert the vote, all of those have been done on a partisan basis with Republican-only votes …
And so to think that that same party that is doing that on a partisan basis would come along in the Congress and vote to safeguard from them, may not be realistic.” [Source: Politico]
Curiously, Mr. Richmond does not bother to define these “voters” he is so concerned with. After all, they could be “noncitizens,” as apparently 1 million of them are allowed to formally vote in upcoming New York elections (as if they weren’t allowed already).
And to be fair, it probably would be “voter suppression” when the deceased are unable to produce valid photo identification, so Richmond could be credited to a degree, assuming his definition of “voter” includes many individuals who technically shouldn’t be “voting” in the first place.
Of course, Pelosi had to jump into the debate, apparently desiring to compete with Richmond in terms of melodrama.
“What the Republicans are doing across the country is really a legislative continuation of what they did on Jan. 6, which is to undermine our democracy, to undermine the integrity of our elections, to undermine the voting power, which is the essence of a democracy …
There is no more important bill that enables us to support and defend the Constitution of the United States … hey are not only suppressing the vote, they are nullifying elections, saying, ‘Well it doesn’t matter who gets more votes, it matters who the three people we appoint to analyze that, what they decide.’ We cannot let that happen. … This legislation is the most important, and we have to keep working in order to get the job done.” [Source: Fox News]
“No more important bill.” Right.
Of course it’s the most “important” bill to Democrats. It’s the one that is guaranteed to nationalize elections and facilitate a total power grab …
Besides, for a party so concerned about “suppression,” they sure are suppressing vital treatments for COVID to conservative states, which reeks of partisanship, to put it mildly.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been rather brazen about the Democrats’ COVID treatment suppression, which is especially troubling considering how effective treatments are.
“We set up these centers this summer when we started to see the delta variant rear its head, and it worked … We were keeping tens of thousands of people out of the hospital, saved thousands of lives. No one disputes that …
Well, as that was happening in September, the federal government decided to seize control of the monoclonal antibodies and cut supplies to Florida and Texas, mainly.” [Source: Breitbart]
The Biden administration, of course, was prepared with an ineffective excuse, claiming that Florida was taking “too much” of the treatment.
Too bad for the Biden admin that DeSantis had an even better response.
“Well, part of the reason we use more than other states is because we’ve actually embraced treatment … Most of these other governors and the people like Fauci and the federal leadership, they basically say get a shot, wear a mask, and they never talk about treatment …
So to just not deal with treatment and be hostile to people like me who are, it shows so much of this is about a political agenda … It’s about partisanship, and it’s not about the best interests of the American people, when you talk about how these folks are acting.” [Source: Breitbart]
In other words, ignoring Emperor Fauci turned out to be a boon for Florida …
