If there was ever a doubt in your mind that Merrick garland is a liberal activist, you need to look no further than the plans he laid out for the DOJ controlling election procedures. It is a job that the constitution gave to the states and not to the federal government except in cases of voter fraud or bribery.
His speech lasted 21 minutes and he spent just 51 seconds on voter fraud and that comment was an utter lie but one the Democrats cling desperately to.
Garland claims that every court found there was no voter fraud or cheating. There have been only 11 cases in which the courts allowed evidence to be revealed.
Trump and the Republicans won 9 of them. And remember, we still have audits that could reveal massive voter fraud. But, don’t expect Garland to act on them. That’s okay because the states themselves can prosecute the cases and are also able to decertify the election results without aid or interference from the federal government.
Garland’s speech lays out his Federal efforts will. It’s a communist’s dream:
- Find Civil Rights violations in the new voting laws passed by 14 States
- Bring back DOJ’s power and preclearance oversight
- Increase voter registration
- Increase the number of voters
- Obstruct or restrict the ability to clean up voter rolls
- Control and restrict the ability to audit elections
- Use numerous Fed agencies to control election disinformation
Exactly where in the constitution does it say the federal government has the right to control how states operate elections unless the law is unconstitutional?
None of the voter integrity bills contain any such act.
In his speech Garland desperately wants the John Lewis Voting Rights Act passed by Congress. In this Act, certain states and local governments would need to pre-clear changes to their voting laws with the DOJ. The Act is written to avoid any Supreme Court concerns mentioned in 2103 (Shelby County v. Holder) when this practice was ruled unconstitutional. The court said discrimination in voting is no longer a problem like it was 40 years ago. Garland doesn’t see it that way. He disagrees with this decision and wants that power back for the DOJ.
In the JLVR Act, when a jurisdiction reaches a certain number of violations, sometimes as little as 3 in the past 25 years, they fall under DOJ supervision. The Act expands beyond 14th and 15th amendment violations. It allows numerous other violations to count towards the threshold. One includes any discrimination of voting based on “language minority groups”. This strategy, and Garland’s doubling of the lawyers in the Voting Rights division, can rapidly increase the number of these violations against targeted States. It would quickly put that State under the thumb of the DOJ.
