Democrats at the very highest levels are colluding to forcibly overturn a 2013 ruling by the United States Supreme Court that gives States back their Constitutional rights to oversee their own elections, which it is a “hill to die” on for the Democrats, explaining their bizarre behavior during the 2020 Presidential election.
[Editor’s note: This article was originally published May 6, 2021 and has been updated]
Key Point: Democrats have been acting in unison to create a narrative of racism where it doesn’t exist to overthrow a Supreme Court running that they do not like, and which makes it harder for them to cheat in elections.
Democrat Joe Biden’s Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) released a letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, taking issue with Maricopa County’s forensic audit of the 2020 election.
In the letter, Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division, raised issues with two aspects of the AZ forensic audit. The DOJ letter to Senator Fann states the following:
“I write regarding issues arising under federal statutes enforced by the United States Department of Justice that are related to the audit required by the Arizona State Senate for the November 2020 federal general election in Maricopa County,” the letter states. “News reports indicate that the Senate subpoenaed ballots, elections systems, and election materials from Maricopa County and required that they be turned over to private contractors, led by a firm known as Cyber Ninjas.”
She concludes with a veiled threat, overpowers she may not actually have:
“Experience with similar investigative efforts around the country has raised concerns that they can be directed at minority voters, which potentially can implicate the anti-intimidation prohibitions of the Voting Rights Act.
Such investigative efforts can have a significant intimidating effect on qualified voters that can deter them
from seeking to vote in the future.
We would appreciate your response to the concerns described herein, including advising us of the steps that the Arizona Senate will take to ensure that violations of federal law do not occur.”
Of course! Falling back on “racism” and ignoring the fact that Hispanics and Black voted for President Donald Trump and may have been disenfranchised by the Democrats.
And ignoring that the Supreme Court addressed this in 2013, saying that calling everything racist is outdated and ruled ‘that time period was over.’
Kinda explains why the Democrats are determined to make all Republicans and everything “racist” again, right? Connect the dots.
The DOJ, forgetting the 2013 SCOTUS ruling, is feeding the leftist media propaganda. It is obviously acting politically because the Supreme Court ruled years ago that States have the right to determine their elections. Unfortunately, the left has never gotten over it or accepted it.
Going down a rabbit hole:

In this article, I explain what the left is trying to overturn by force:
REMEMBER THAT SCOTUS RULED ON THIS ALREADY
According to Democrats, Shelby County v. Holder gave states more leeway to pass even more restrictive voting laws, and the Democrats do not like it. That is what the left claims, so we should pay attention to that.
What do they think was too restrictive?
On June 25, 2013, the Court ruled by a 5 to 4 vote that Section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Bill was unconstitutional because the coverage formula was based on data over 40 years old, making it no longer responsive to current needs and therefore an impermissible burden on the constitutional principles of federalism and equal sovereignty of the states.
Now consider this article in Vox from 2019, which is about a SCOTUS ruling from the Obama era which the left never accepted, and consider how the left has refused to respect the authority of the Supreme Court Ruling on States rights over elections for the highly suspicious 2020 Presidential election:
Shelby County v. Holder upended voting rights in America
Civil rights groups say it’s time to fully restore the Voting Rights Act on the sixth anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling.
Jun 25, 2019, 7:49pm EDT
“In recent years, threats to voting rights and the possibility of voter suppression have become increasingly serious concerns for civil rights groups. This was on full display in the 2018 midterm elections, as voting laws and regulations in several states impacted high-stakes races in ways that disproportionately affected voters of color.
But the concerns raised by these elections did not originate with high-profile 2018 contests in places like Georgia and Florida, both states where black, Latino, and Asian American voters struggled to cast a ballot. Instead, these issues can, in part, be directly traced back to a 2013 Supreme Court ruling in the case Shelby County v. Holder.
That ruling, which turns six years old this week, invalidated a key portion of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, long seen as one of the most important civil rights laws of the past century. On June 25, 2013, the court’s conservative majority ruled that the government was using an outdated and unconstitutional process to determine which states were required to have their voting rules approved by the government. Before the ruling, nine states (and several other counties and townships) had been subjected to this requirement.”
