Former President Barack H. Obama laid out the part that he will play in the Democrat-Socialist’s sinister plan to render the Republican Party powerless and finally bury all conservative dissent to their plans to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” as he once promised a crowd of cheering Chicago Democrats.
Obama Has A Role To Play- There Are Always Two
In his interview with Erin Haines Editor-at-large of 19thNews Obama detailed that the federalization of electoral laws & regulations became a priority early in his Presidency and is only now being realized by his surrogate: Joe Biden. There are always two, the one who wields the soft power and the one who smiles for the cameras.
“As I said at John Lewis’s funeral, we need to not only revitalize the Voting Rights Act, but to make it even better — by making sure every American is automatically registered to vote; by adding polling places, expanding early voting, and ending partisan gerrymandering; by guaranteeing that every American citizen has equal representation in our government, including the American citizens who live in Washington, D.C., and in Puerto Rico, and the formerly incarcerated. And that’s only the beginning.”
Fmr. President Obama also referred back to a 2013 Supreme Court Decision in Shelby v. Holder in which SCOTUS struck down the antiquated and historically discriminatory requirement that states with a “long history of entrenched discrimination in voting” states such as Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas & Virginia as well as parts of California, Florida, New York, North Carolina, and South Dakota would require DoJ or D.C. District Appeals Court “preclearance” for any new voting changes. Essentially making the States subject to Washington, D.C. for any changes in their election laws, depriving the states of their equal sovereignty with the Federal Government.
Obama said, “As soon as Shelby was decided, we knew what was coming. That’s because we understood how important the Voting Rights Act was in terms of protecting access to the ballot box, especially the preclearance provisions that the Supreme Court had gutted. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote in her dissent, “Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.”
Why? Because The Shelby Ruling in 2013 Was A BOMBSHELL, Lethal To The Dems’ Plan
The Shelby ruling by Justice Roberts sticks the most in Democrats’ craw because it completely annihilates their entire argument on election integrity rights being ‘discriminatory’ and indeed: refutes the very notion of ‘Systemic Racism‘
Chief Justice Roberts wrote,
“As we explained in upholding the law, “exceptional conditions can justify legislative measures not otherwise appropriate.” Id., at 334. Reflecting the unprecedented nature of these measures, they were scheduled to expire after five years. See Voting Rights Act of 1965, §4(a), 79Stat. 438.
Nearly 50 years later, they are still in effect; indeed, they have been made more stringent, and are now scheduled to last until 2031.
There is no denying, however, that the conditions that originally justified these measures no longer characterize voting in the covered jurisdictions. By 2009, “the racial gap in voter registration and turnout [was] lower in the States originally covered by §5 than it [was] nationwide.””
Roberts continued that “At the same time, voting discrimination still exists; no one doubts that. The question is whether the Act’s extraordinary measures, including its disparate treatment of the States, continue to satisfy constitutional requirements.” Just as no one in their right mind would argue that racism doesn’t exist, it is the “systemic” part which presupposes that our government is racist and always has been by design falls flat.
That is Fmr. President Obama’s role in the Democrat’s grand scheme to render the GOP forever irrelevant: to lend legitimacy to that which is by its very nature illegitimate: both the Biden-Harris regime, and their efforts to subdue conservatives.
