It is obvious the Obama regime is becoming increasingly worried about the election this fall.
If trends hold, this fall will result in a tremendous repudiation of Obama and socialism. So what does a corrupt socialist regime do?
They fight back.
In Texas, one of the most important states and a must win state for Republicans, the Department of Justice is nixing Texas’ law requiring voter ID
From Fox News:
The Justice Department is objecting to a new photo ID law in Texas for voters, saying the state has failed to demonstrate that the law is not discriminatory by design against Hispanic voters.
The department's head of the civil rights division, Tom Perez, wrote a six-page letter to Texas' director of elections saying that Texas has not "sustained its burden" under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act to show that the new law will not have a discriminatory effect on minority voters. About 11 percent of Hispanic voters reportedly lack state-issued identification.
Perez wrote that while the state says the new photo ID requirement is to "ensure electoral integrity and deter ineligible voters from voting" the state "did not include evidence of significant in-person voter impersonation not already addressed by the state's existing laws."
Perez added that the number of people lacking any personal ID or driver's license issued by the state ranges from 603,892 to 795,955, but of that span, 29-38 percent of them are Hispanic.
Does anyone really believe the bovine scatology from the Obama regime?
James O’Keefe convincingly proved how easy vote fraud is when his team went to polling places in New Hampshire and asked for ballots in the names of dead people.
If it is an unreasonable imposition for there to be ID for voting, then perhaps the next time one of us wants to get on a flight, how about claiming it is an unreasonable imposition. After all, major terrorists probably have trouble getting a valid ID. Surly this discriminates against them.
Perhaps we should object to being forced to show ID for alcohol and tobacco sales. How about being forced to show ID when we open bank accounts? Surly this discriminates against criminals who want to commit ID theft. Do you realize how tough it is for these guys to get ID’s they can use?
Why don’t we complain about the requirement for ID the next time we have to buy cold medicine? After all, meth producers have a tough enough time as it is.
How about complaining about the requirement in Chicago that you must display an ID if you want to by drain cleaner. After all, someone is surly discriminated against with this requirement.
When are we going to stop taking these clowns who want to steal elections. That is the only reason for an objection to voter ID laws. We have seen too many elections where either the election has been stolen, such as the election that put Al Franken in the Senate or those that came close.
Let’s start calling the liberals what they are: Election thieves!
Eric Holder can bite me.
The man is a thing you do to your finger, when you accidently punch a small hole it with a sharp object.
As a poll officer I had one come to the polls and said she didn't know who was who. Would I mark who was a Democrat for her so she could vote. How is that for knowledge of who is a best person to vote to do the best job for us. Maybe Boehner's comments is correct in what he said about members in congress - some are knowledgable/ some are dumb. I guess we can't be smart in everything, but would like our voters to be able to know who people are, names, read, and poll officers be able to know who they say they are (identity fraud is rampant with credit cards so why not in voting). Whose rights are we protecting today?
Did you mark her ballot for her or are you not allowed to do that--just curious--I would think that might be considered "tampering" with the ballot (subject of course to the laws in your state). I give you credit for having the patience to deal with her--I might have told her to come back after she had educated herself. And, IMO, there isn't any reason for voters to be "uneducated" now a days except for complacency/laziness--don't know about other states, but here in OH, you can go online ahead of time to print off a sample copy of the ballot--we do this for everyone in our family so that they can take it with them when they go to the polls--takes 5mins--how hard is that? I am always amazed that when we do go to vote, we are in/out because we came prepared while others stand there for lengthy periods of time reading over the ballot (for the first time no doubt); trying to remember who's name they've seen/heard the most recently on TV/radio/newspaper/mailings. While more and more Americans are doing their "homework" ahead of time, unfortunately, there are still too many who either don't care; think talking about "politics" is taboo or who aren't willing to put in the time to find out who is running; what issues are on the ballot that they are voting for/against. JMHO :)
That means that legal hispanics that don't have photo ID's don't have a driver's license, don't receive SS, can't cash a check, can't apply for a job and if they can't afford the ID the state will give them their IDs for free.
I think Jason Mattera should go on a street corner in El Paso and poll Hispanics who walk by if they have a photo ID, since Obama is so concerned they don't have any.
Texas needs to implement their law, tell the DOJ and the WH to pound sand. It is time to make it plainly clear, election law concerning the states belongs to the states and if they do not like it, take it to the supreme court for an immediate ruling on states rights. I am sick of them pulling a bully out of the box, just in time to cause grief. This law has been on the books since 2010 and needs to be implemented. Tell Holder to put his hands in his pockets and Texas, just vote. to hell with the illegals in DC
I just wish Rick Perry could meet Holder beind the wood shed, Holder might get the idea. I am a Texan, and I say, "Keep your raggedy Butts out my State, we don't cater to Yankees telling us how to do things"
Can you publish the e-mail addresses of these jokers at the so called Justice department, so we can blow off steam there??
This joker dismissed the NBPP election fraud, is now telling states what they can and can not do.
I hope the Texas Sec. of State sends this idiot a copy of the 10th Amendment.
These are state elections, the fed is merely the beneficiary of these elections
The Obama cabal will pull out all the stops to keep their 'operative' in the WH. But in the end, I'm confident the Patriots in this nation will send him back to Chicago. The only regret I'll have is that we have to pay for his and 'Moochelles' living expenses the rest of their lives. But I guess its a small price to pay to rid ourselves of this communist.
Here's hoping the folks WAKE UP!!!!! Right now, what is being offered to us by the RINO's....sheesh...not looking good at all...just a bunch of McCain and barry lites!!!
Thanks Jim, I too feel that, in all seriousness, the American People know what to do, and will do it. We are facing our Worst Enemy yet, the Enemy Within, but in the end, I believe we will rise to the Occasion, and finish this mess. If we do, I hope we have learned a Lesson, and we never take our Land and Freedom for granted again. This Country has shamelessly turned from God, ignored his Commandments, has been lazy,and let our Morals decline. In a way, we have no one to blame, but ourselves, in the fact, that we were not alert, and didn't put a stop to this when we had a chance. It is pretty hard to get tooth paste back in the tube, but by God, we will do it!!!
I'd say there are a lot of illegal Muslims who will try to vote as well, just as they did in IRAN
