ID? Who Needs It? (Actually, Every Adult)

Every other country around the globe requires a government issued ID in order to vote

Published

on

Carolyn, a registered Republican and staunch advocate of voter ID, had her shots in March and April, and via email was advising Samantha, a registered Democrat, on what to expect. After describing the procedure and the variety of potential after-effects, Carolyn suggested that Samantha didn’t need to bring any ID to the site on the day of her appointment.

All Will Be Fine

Samantha said, “What do you mean? How can I get the shots without showing ID?” Carolyn said, “You don’t really need any ID. Just tell them who you are, where you live, and your age, and it will all be fine.”

Now Samantha was thoroughly confused. Everything that she knew about the process suggested that one had to show a driver’s license or some other government issued ID. When Carolyn, who had already had her shots, told her that ID was unnecessary, Samantha was skeptical. She wrote back and said, “Are you sure about the no ID requirement? This doesn’t sound feasible or even practical.”

Carolyn again emphasized that ID wasn’t necessary, although it was desirable. You could simply talk to the registration people on site, tell them who you are, and that should be enough.

Now I Get It!

Samantha finally caught on. She had been an advocate of loose voter ID enforcement. She figured, the more people who vote, the better; never mind if they’re actually qualified to vote, are American citizens, or are following the law.

Carolyn’s ruse had worked. Samantha realized that not requiring ID to get the COVID shots made no sense, at all. How could anybody prove anything? Did you already have a first shot? Is this your second shot? Are you really who you say you are?

If you’re beyond a certain age or in a particular profession, you’re likely to be qualified for shots earlier than other people, in many jurisdictions. Without ID there would be complete chaos and no way to track who received what and when.

So it is everywhere. Everyone who has gotten vaccinated for the coronavirus has had to show a government-issued ID. No ID equals no vaccination.

Likewise, elsewhere, no ID, no participation. You want to step on board a commercial airliner? Show ID, and your plane ticket as you’re moving through the Homeland Security checkpoint. Otherwise, you do not pass through, and you miss your flight.

Soft Bigotry

The people who insist that government ID is not necessary, or is discriminatory, when it comes to voting, because some individuals can’t be expected to obtain such ID, are practicing either ‘progressive’ politics, or the bigotry of low expectations. It’s usually one or the other, and sometimes both.

Surveys indicate that among minority voters, the overwhelming majority insist that obtaining and showing a government-issued ID in the voting process does not represent an undue burden. Indeed, many feel slighted that other people, namely white liberals, presume that minorities don’t have the wherewithal to attain and exhibit a government-issued ID.

Do advocates of ‘no ID needed’ further realize that among all races in America, most agree that maintaining election integrity is more vital than making it simpler to vote? Seeking to reduce potential fraudulent voting helps to ensure that everybody’s lawful vote is properly counted. Requiring ID in this day and age is simply not a discriminatory ploy.

To forgo the requirement for voter ID is synonymous with voter suppression. An illegal voter can effectively suppress a legal vote by voting for the opposing candidate. A swarm of illegal voters can change an election.

America, Trailing the World

Who, exactly, are the people who have a keen interest in decreasing the odds of having fair and lawful elections? Might they be members of a political party that recognizes it cannot succeed in elections without cheating? Could it be Democrats?

Every other country around the globe requires a government issued ID in order to vote. The United States, once the beacon of democracy, has now tumbled from its high perch. Requiring voter ID, in every U.S. election at every level, will help to restore us to our loftier plain.

A Compound National Fracture

Our 246-year experiment in representative democracy is rapidly fraying at the edges

Published

on

If Martin Luther King, Jr. were alive today, he’d be appalled at the fractionalization of our nation. No one can guarantee the USA will exist for the duration of the decade, let alone the next several years.

Our 246-year experiment in representative democracy is rapidly fraying at the edges, and not merely because of anarchists and agitators funded by one-world globalists, or because of perpetually contested elections. Big money has always been the controlling factor in Washington D.C. Today, the levels of influence peddling are unprecedented and getting worse.

Evaporating Middle Ground

Democrats and Republicans once sought to join together on critical issues for the good of the Union, at least some of the time. Today partisan politics predominates. We now approach $30 trillion in debt and $164 trillion in unfunded liabilities, equal to 492,000 per citizen, This a level that is unconscionable and represents theft of our children’s and grandchildren’s heritage. Concurrently, Communist China operates in the foreground to undermine our every institution.

The sentiment that the U.S. is a global force for good is a sentiment shared by at least half of our friends around the globe, and even begrudgingly by our enemies after the dust settled — think Germany and Japan — but the sentiment cannot be as potent when there is constant internal strife. Domestic dissension and sedition, the lobbying stranglehold, and treason has left our friends befuddled and our enemies bemused and emboldened.

Meanwhile, the world is suffering, beyond the ravages of the coronavirus and in ways that few people could have predicted. More refugees populate the earth than ever before. Human trafficking, often a euphemism for sexual slavery, is a blight on “civilized” societies. The world population is now approaching 8.0 billion people up from 5.0 billion people in 1985.

Madness in Motion

In the U.S. whether or not the libstream press will address the reality, the waves of illegal immigrants from 2008 to 2022 have strained our resources. Local and state governments are bursting at the fiscal seams, while Biden and crew keep the floodgates open.

Crime is rampant among communities with an influx of illegal aliens. A visit to the Drug Enforcement Administration website reveals the country of origin of those criminals most wanted by the D.E.A. in cities across America. Hint: Overwhelming it is Mexico.

Despite record amounts spent on education, our schools were already failing, before the current shutdowns. Minority academic underachievement has been near-constant for decades, even in the most “progressive” communities with the most “progressive-thinking” teachers. Hordes of immigrant children, primarily hailing from Latin America, further strain school districts.

Splitting along Ideological Lines

On the East Coast and the West Coast, deep pockets of liberalism prevail. In the center of the country, conservatism prevails. Communities are organizing along political divisions and feel “the other side” simply doesn’t get it: espousing policies, theories, and beliefs contrary to the best interests of our civilization.

I don’t wish to reside in a land dominated by a polarized news media, the current Senate and Congressional leaders, billionaire “progressives” bent on censorship, sell-out corporations, a two-tier justice system, and a school system designed to poison the minds of our children.

The U.S. might fracture and become two or three countries. The geography for such a partition, of course, is not convenient. How do you combine California, Oregon, and Washington, with New England and the left-leaning Mid-Atlantic States? They are joined together by ideology, while thousands of miles apart. And, if we the U.S. were to split into two nations, beyond the inconvenient geography many problems would occur from legal, political, and trade standpoints.

No Unity, No Future

In any case, we cannot continue in the current mode. The far-left is pulling away from everyone else in the nation, even from patriotic rank and file Democrat. Many people would just as soon let the rabble-rousers go: What is the point of seeking to maintain the Union with people who fervently wish to “re-educate” you?

All the above points to the reality that the U.S. as we know it could soon be irretrievable.

January 6th: One Year of Democrat Lies

On this day, expect to see an array of libstream news coverage that contorts the events of one year ago

Published

on

The Biden Administration has taken action unprecedented in our history. It is treating those individuals who inhabited the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 in protest as if they are insurrectionist or murderous terrorists. The people who Biden is holding, in many cases for months on end in solitary confinement, are being denied their fundamental rights as American citizens.

America was founded based on a constitution and amendments that guarantee rights to the individual; a republic where laws prevail, to be dispensed impartially; where unlawful search and seizure is not permitted; and where due process matters.

This is the land of the free and the home of the brave; the nation which immigrants from everywhere yearn to be; the beacon of democracy and the best example on Earth of a free people.

Insurrection? Hardly

Many of the people who entered the Capitol that day were ushered in by the Capitol guards. They simply walked through doors that were held open for them. The claims of insurrection are ridiculous. No one had weapons. How do you mount an insurrection with no arms?

Nearly all every Capitol occupiers had either a plane reservation or car ride ready for that evening or the next day. They did not intend to stay. In short, no organized attempt to overthrow the government was underway, and every Biden official and every rational member of Congress knows that knows that.

The libstream press won’t tell you that the ranks of actual Trump supporters were infiltrated by members of Antifa and actual insurrectionists who sought to create a false flag, making it seem as if Donald Trump and Trump-inspired supporters intended to overthrow the U.S. government.

Trump supporters were not seeking to overthrow the United States government; this is total hogwash as is known by anyone who is familiar with the facts.

Ashli Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was killed by a Capitol guard. She posed no threat and carried no weapon, and based on the more vigorous activity of some Capitol occupiers did little to earn her fate.

Many of the Americans held by the Biden Administration have been mistreated. Remember, they are innocent until proven guilty. Why not release to the public the film footage from inside of the capital, with no cuts on footage; no bits and pieces? We know why.

The Shame of Biden and Company

The Biden Administration and its incalculably undemocratic, unlawful, and despicable approach to administering justice is stifling attempts to ensure that these incarcerated individuals receive lawful and constitutional protections. Justice, however, must be served before and during the legal proceedings for any of the incarcerated.

Biden, a political puppet, and his handlers, feel all-powerful and appear unconcerned. They’ve got the sycophantic press on their side as well as multi-millions of gullible Democrats, liberals, and progressives who believe that Biden is a kind man, his administration is both fair and just, and the Capitol occupiers are in league with the devil. As usual, the exact opposite is true.

And what about the DOJ? For at least two decades and counting, the U.S. Department of Justice has engaged in egregious acts of prosecutorial misconduct. DOJ prosecuting attorneys seek convictions by any means necessary. If that involves withholding evidence, delaying court cases, and bleeding the persecuted financially dry, then so be it. Within a 97% conviction rate, as a nation, we have crossed the line into banana republic territory.

On a Mission of Misinformation

The gatekeepers of information and communication in our society, including the wannabe autocrats at Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twitter, etc, don’t fool us with their rigged algorithms and ‘community standards.’

Their manipulation of the news, the contorted views, and the censorship in which they’ve been engaged, will not diminish us. We know their end game: it is control of the masses, ever to be ruled by a fraudulently elected ruling class, backed by über-liberal billionaires who believe they are the anointed ones.

On this day, expect to see a vast array of news coverage that contorts the events of one year ago. Don’t buy into it for even a nano-second.
